Black and Blue

Black and Blue

I’ve been feeling a bit blue today, on this, the 13th anniversary of September 11, 2001 in the U.S. While I didn’t personally lose anyone on that date, collectively, our country lost over 3,000 innocent souls. Added to that was the fact that I had lost my mother about a month beforehand, so I was already pretty raw emotionally by the time of the 9-11 tragedy (two very different events lumped together in one big, ugly pile of grief). So every year on this date, the memories come flooding back to me, no matter how hard I try to avoid them. Needing some quiet time before heading off to work this morning, I grabbed my Yorkie Fiona, and we dropped into one of my favorite sims, Small Town Green. It was the perfect place for gathering thoughts and drying tears.

Moving on… a couple of notes about what I’m wearing. First, this gorgeous suit is by PurpleMoon Creations, and can be found at the Rock Your Rack event until September 15. 50% of the purchase price will be donated to the National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc. My shoes, necklaces, earrings, and pose are all on sale at The Dressing Room Fusion for one more day. I have to point out that these shoes are materials-enabled, and are truly spectacular with advanced lighting turned on. They come in 5 colors for 1 price. 🙂

Beautiful Music

Valentine’s Day is over, but it’s never to late to make beautiful music together. You can find this lovely, romantic pose at Positure Poses (piano is included). ♥

Blogging soon

While you’re at it, be sure you pick up these beautiful shoes. They’re the Valentine’s Day group gift from Gos Boutique. Gos shoes are always amazing, and these Carrie Pumps are no exception. The come with a stocking option with 5 colors, which I have turned on here in white. But – and here’s the catch – you ONLY have until the end of tomorrow, February 21st, to pick them up at the store. You’ll find them near the landing point by the stairs. (The group is currently 500L to join while the gift is out, but I believe it drops back down to around 50L when there is no gift.)

This sexy negligee is the February gift from ~ghee~. This is a gift for EVERYONE, and no group join is needed – yay! These pretty bracelets are a group gift from Maxi Gossamer, and can be found in the notices. Gavin’s suit is the men’s New Year’s gift from Gizza Creations, and it includes the pants, shirt, and jacket. His shoes can be found in the 0L clearance area at *COCO* Designs. I’ll warn you… they were very small when he first put them on, so they might actually be women’s shoes. But I made them quite a bit larger using the resizer, and they look like they were made for him now. 🙂 Oh, and see that cute picture on the wall behind us? That’s a new dollarbie at floorplan. It comes with 3 “nerdy” romantic textures; this one says “Amin Mela Lle,” which is the Elven phrase for “I love you.” Don’t ask me why I know that. 😉

This gorgeous build is the Dion Skybox, which you can pick up as a free subscriber gift from Llorisen. It’s really a good size and weighs in at only 12 LI.

Janie’s Got a Gun

Another event that you won’t want to miss is Gothmas by Gaslight (GxG). To quote the web site, “Gothmas by Gaslight is an annual holiday shopping event with a dark twist. It primarily caters to the goth, steam/dieselgoth and the dark Victoriana communities.” So… if you’re sick of cutsy holiday/Christmas stuff, and you have a slightly dark side, this is the place for you. 😉

Blogging soon!

This sexy dress is a free opening gift from .enfant terrible., which you can find at Gothmas by Gaslight. The textures are gorgeous, and I love the metalwork on the bodice. My shoes – which you can’t see – are quite lovely, and are also made by .enfant terrible. You can check them out when you visit their GxG shop. 🙂

Blogging soon!

This pretty skin is another offering from Izzie’s at The Dressing Room FUISON. My choker and ring are both 20L gacha items from !The Little Bat (TLB) at GxG. My earrings – which you also can’t see – are a free GxG gift from *Faerycat Designs*. They are little black ornaments with gold stripes, if you’re interested. Finally, how fun are these poses?! They are both from a 5-pose set by Flash Friendly Poses, which you can pick up for 100L at GxG. The awesome steampunk gun is included. 🙂

Peace, Ice Skates, and Mythical Creatures

Blogging Soon

There’s still plenty of time to pick up those Peace on Earth Hunt (POE6) gifts, and with so many great stores in the hunt, you don’t want to miss a single one! My complete outfit is the POE6 hunt gift from ~*~Felicia’s Fashions~*~; included are the sweater, leggings, and boots you see here, plus a pair of mittens and a snuggly hat which I’m not wearing here. The pretty skin I’m in is a special Christmas edition of Izzie’s new release, Lila, which you can only find at The Dressing Room FUSION (TDRF). 4 different eyebrow colors are included. Oh, and my pose is from a 5-pose gift pack by {Imeka~}, so pop over and pick them up! 🙂

More POE6 goodies for your landscaping needs! First, this awesome ice-skating shack is the gift from Hanaya. It dispenses animated ice skates for both men and women for your winter skating pleasure. The lovely tree on the right is the POE6 gift from *Kismet*; this is the “undecorated” version, but there is also a version with Christmas decorations in the box. The decorated stump on the left is the POE6 gift from HPMD (bear cub not included). There is also a larger version in the box with more lights and critters aboard – and it snows! 😀 A couple of non-POE group gifts are included in this scene, starting with the tin house lantern, which was sent to members of the {what next} group a while back; 3 different house shapes are included. Finally, my cute, mythical Jackalope friend is the newest group gift from the Virtual Kennel Club. VKC pets are artificially intelligent and will wander around your land, or follow your commands as you wish. This little guy comes with a sweet petting animation, although he did poke me in the face a few times with his antlers. 😉 You can pick him up at one of 3 VKC parks, but only until Friday, 3 January 2014 (see link for more information). Enjoy!

Beachin’ It

hudsons_may5_001f

In observance of Memorial Day, it’s a long weekend here in the U.S. And let me tell you, this extra day off couldn’t have come at a better time! I intend to relax and not do one useful thing today! 🙂 I’ve headed out to the beach in this comfy, Summer Tropics Watermelon dress and hat, the May group gift from Hudson’s Clothing Co. (free to join). These texture-change sunglasses are a free gift from SteinWerk, and my over-sized beach bag is only 10L from Kakia Designs. It also comes with a lipstick and compact, in case you need to do a little touching up after a day of fun in the sun.

I’m really loving this new skin: Irene, the latest release from Izzie’s. This special version is currently featured at The Dressing Room Fusion for 70L, with a choice of three eyebrow colors. My jewelry, a free group gift from Miel, has been around for a while, but I still like it because it’s so versatile. Both the beads and strings are texture-changing, so you can match them to just about anything. My hair was a holiday group gift from LeLutka, but I’m happy to report that you can still pick it up for free in the store. 8 different colors and a hat are included in the box. 🙂
