Fall Thoughts

Standard

 

There is a lot of negativity around the world today and I want everyone to take a minute to say look around you and realise there is a bigger picture, there is so many things around you that you should be grateful and happy with.

Fall Thoughts

Autumn is such a pretty season, the colours are amazing.8f8 really did catch that beauty in this months release for the subscription box Deco(C)rate.  It really is a dream come true. No place of ours – Autumnal Box has a 13 Prim Land Impact, 1 couple and 10 single poses it is a great addition to any autumn sim. I only have 1 request please can I have a Winter, Spring and Summer add on.

Revival also had a new release for Deco(C)rate this month, Shelter from The Rain, a cute little shelter with space for 3 avatars, 18 single animations and 9 cuddles. Its rustic beauty really is so pretty.

There is so much more to show you from this months Deco(C)rate and I will be sharing some more faves very soon. The amazing designers put together really did not disappoint!

The box it comes in is fantastic. A quick click makes the chest open.

Each drawer is then clickable and delivers the item, even pressing the unpack all button makes the drawers animate as each opens in turn! I think I see a shiny future for Deco(C)rate.

My outfit kind of has that vintage feel too and can be found at The Old Fair from Gee, it includes, the jumper, shorts, socks and a scarf that isn’t shown.

“I still fall on my face sometimes and I can’t colour inside the lines because I’m perfectly incomplete. I’m still working on my Masterpiece!!”

Jessie J -Masterpiece!

We all make mistakes sometimes and its the reactions of those around us that make how those mistakes are felt about.

I had an amazing time styling and editing for this blog. I hope you enjoy the shots and styling too.

I have used 2 poses within this blog, the one in the picture above is from fashiowl, and is available at Tres Chic which opens today. The one below is from Image Essentials and was one of 2 poses on sale this weekend head on over you may catch it still and you to can have a new best friend!

I'm still working on my Masterpiece

I have some amazing friends and one who packaged all her Epiphany bits she didn’t want into a box for me and sent them over, I am one of many still fighting to get in so was great to be able to get my hands on some bits and be able to blog them today!

Besom has 2 awesome Gachas at Epiphany one of the them being the Witchy Bitches gacha, which is where you will find the beautiful Spellbound I am wearing here, it is a very cute style with a bit of classy attitude!!

My necklace also from Epiphany is from Return of The Coven, the Moons Aligned necklace is one of the common prizes but what a cool accessory for this seasons witchyness.

My Corset and make up is from Glitter and is available at Swank, Fierce for me was eye catching and a little different, Halloween with a touch of pink. The corset itself comes in standard mesh sizes, the under pants are applier or standard. The make up comes with an omega applier so you can apply it to any Omega head you have a relay for.

Last 2 Days of September Pose Hop

Standard

Me_Two

The Pose Hop is entering the last 2 days of this round so you have just enough time to hop around some stores and get your pose on! The Pose Hop is an in-store event that welcomes all pose creators whether they me in world or have their store on market place.

Petite Poses is one of this rounds designers. Mummie Sandwich above is their sale release for this round and can be used with one or 2 kids!

ME TWO

Looking up is their new release now this pose really is for 2 kids but I wanted to be a little different so I made it a big and little me pose and it worked but here is the vendor shot to give you the proper idea as it looks much cuter with 2 little ones.

I have already been asked who is the little one in these pictures as she does not closely resemble either of my daughters, I think she last featured in my blog over a year ago. She is little me, yes Little Anna, she is a bit of a handful and I full expect her to be popping up more and more as I have been asked to do more Toddleedoo blogging alongside my other blogging!

Fall And Family

Standard

Family Fall Time

It is not that I don’t like fall I do because the colours and beauty of nature is amazing, but on my travels this summer I met lots of different people all with differing views on so much.

Fall to some is beauty to others they don’t see it like that. I sat and spoke to an older lady as she was travelling on her own and her view on fall is this, as the season changes from Summer to Autumn we see the pretty  shed their life and beauty and in some cases die. I was quick to add but it also enables rebirth in the future, she advised me the future is no guarantee. She was far from a negative person from my other chats with her I can tell you she was probably one of the most inspiring people I met, at 82 she was travelling and visiting all the places she has wanted to in her life but never done. She has some bucket list of places let me tell you and in each place she has something to do. She is well aware she may not get to every place but she has said as long as she can, she will! We could all learn a lot from that. She talked about her family, her husband sadly not here any more but her kids supporting her every place she visits!

Family is so important and even those who do not think they are heavily into family roleplay in second life if they look a little deeper they will see in their close knit groups a kind of family, different people take different roles, it happens all around us in society continuously.

This last week quite by accident I fell upon a photo on flickr of a wee one looking for a family, she is also a blogger and an animal lover, I messaged her and well that as they say is history. There is an easy connection between all of us forming which isn’t easy with our family with me and Steel having been together years and Zoey having been with us nearly 2 now. Here is to hoping things go well and that we see some collaboration blog posts very soon.

This pose is a great one for those awesome fall pictures and is a new release from Something New, Ally and Jake have been busy getting a Halloween store all set up for you.  It comes with poses for four as seen but there is extra kid baskets if you need them!

Wanderer Returns

Standard

The Wanderer Returns

The wandering she had done, had helped her see beautiful things and look through the lens a little differently.

So in 9 days time I head home, it has been an amazing summer and I do class myself as being very lucky.

I have spent a whole summer on probably one of the most loved Greek Islands worldwide. But all good things do come to an end. For me it will be mixed emotions the place and its people have been amazing, the internet and being far away from home comforts has been tough!

I hope you guys like this blog half as much as I did taking it.

Collabor88 has done it again, what an amazing round, warning attending this round will have a severe effect on your linden balance.  This beautiful maxi dress is from erratic and the array of designs its available in there is something for everyone. As with all of erratic designs the attention to detail is stunning and it really is something special. Both the poses used in this blog are also available at Collabor88 from Purple Poses.

The Wanderer Returns

Everyone should take time to smell the roses

Standard

Smelling the Flowers

 

In this crazy life well for most of us ready this lives we live, it is all to easy to not take the time to be greatful for all we have and have had. It is all too easy to want more, we feel like we need more when in reality a good long look at what you have can make you eternally greatful for a lot!

Smelling the Flowers

The Pose that inspired these photos is by Q Poses, these along with a handful of other sponsors are amongst those that have stayed strong with me through my summer break, it is a true honor to work with them and the other awesome sponsors that have stayed by my side or given me an extended leave of absence with firm invite back when I return home in 2-3 weeks.

The Beautiful Amely skin from WoW skins shown here on the Catwa Destiny head it really is smooth and stunning, for me the summer always helps my skin look smooth and beautiful just like Amely.

I do keep getting so many comments on my lashes! I do love lashes I wont ever wear Fake big lashes in real as I am blessed with fairly long ones. But these stunning lashes from Slackgirl really do feel long and natural and there is even a gem option included as well for those sparkly nights out!
