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. 🙂

Vintage Space

Vintage Space

I love most things vintage. Maybe because in RL years, I could be considered “vintage.” This month’s round of The Challenge really reminded me of some of my favorite childhood things: watching black and white TV shows (and you actually had to GET UP to change the channel), the “British Invasion,” and spending all my quarters playing Tempest on those huge video game machines at the pizza parlor. Ah, good times.

A note about this amazing Fremantle TV by %Percent: be sure to read the enclosed notecard. Twenty different movies and shows are available for streaming (I’m watching Atomic Rulers of the World here), but your settings might need to be adjusted a bit. I discovered that on my fairly new Win8 PC, I had to install a different version of Adobe Flash Player in order to get the video to stream. It wasn’t difficult to get everything working though, and once I did, I got to take another trip down Memory Lane via The Lucy Show. All the shows are PG and include sound.

Ok, so now that I’ve completely dated myself… I think I’ll go shoo that space alien away from my laptop and watch some more classic TV. My pizza’s getting cold.

P.S. I’ve also thrown in a couple of Fifty Linden Friday (FLF) items (which, as of this posting, were still 50L), as well as some group gifts. Enjoy. 🙂

Island Invasion

Invasion! (blogging soon)

Serena has been busy with RL travel and business, so Duncan and I thought we’d come over and check on the house for her. When we arrived, we were shocked to find the beach had been invaded… by hedgehogs! I have no idea how they got on the island, but they’ve sure made themselves at home.

A few notes about what I’m wearing: my shorts and towel are a recent subscriber gift from FATEwear. There is also a maple leaf version in the box for you Canadians. My hair is the newest group gift from Uw.st. If blue is more your style, you can pick up a a blue version at the current round of Creation.jp, which ends on July 15 (join the free group first). My skin is Davos by 7 Deadly s{K}ins, which you can pick up on sale at Bro Couture. Slink appliers are included in the box.

Bullying Stops Here!

I had really hoped to post this yesterday, but for some reason, WordPress was being a stinker, and every time I tried to log into my draft, I wound up in one of Love’s drafts. Weird! I finally gave up and went to bed, but I’m back today to share this news with you!

PurpleMoon Creations is sponsoring the SL version of Pink Shirt Day – Bullying Stops Here. The actual Pink Shirt Day was yesterday, February 26, 2014, but… you can continue to support the project until March 4, 2014. If you head over to the PurpleMoon in-world store, you can pick up this cute t-shirt for a minimum 10L donation. More is appreciated, of course, but every Linden counts. And fellas, don’t feel left out because there is also a pink shirt for you! 😉

Blogging soon!

From the PurpleMoon web site:

“Bullying can take place anywhere and it’s important to speak up about it. Stand against bullying without saying a word by slipping into a pink T-shirt.” PurpleMoon Creations invites you to wear a specially created mesh pink shirt for males and females and show your support against bullying. A minimum donation of L$10 is required but any higher amounts are appreciated!

Net proceeds from this project will be donated to the CKNW Orphans’ Fund in support of Boys & Girls Clubs Anti-Bullying programs. As of yesterday afternoon, PurpleMoon had raised almost $30kL!

As the mother of a young daughter, bullying is something that worries me every time she goes to school or interacts with others. I remember the “mean girls” when I was young, but sadly, there are so many more and different avenues for bullying nowadays… it really is scary. Many thanks to PurpleMoon Creations for spear-heading this project in SL!

A few more items of note in this post: my super cute, ‘do is a new group gift from Tram. It only comes in this ginger color, but it does include a resizer, so you can fit it to most head sizes. My skin is the Pink Fuel Sora Peach Flushed which you can find on sale at the PF store. My bracelet (which says “Friends Forever”) is a gacha from NuDoLu, and because Xia said I need to wear glasses more often, I’m wearing these fun Peace Glasses from Fabuleaux (also a gacha). 😉 OH! And my pretty nails are a free gift from Flair. There are several other gifts available on the wall at Flair, so be sure you pick them all up!

A Little “HY” on a Coffee House!

Blogging soon!

Those of you who know me on Facebook have probably figured out that I’m a pretty serious coffee enthusiast. In fact, there are some days when I think the only reason I get out of bed in the morning is to have coffee! Anyway, when I learned that ++HY’s++ was giving away this fabulous coffee house as a gift for their 2nd Anniversary Hunt, I just knew I had to have it. I’ve always wanted to have a little store or hangout in SL, and since I don’t build or make things, a coffee house is perfect! This sweet little shop can be YOURS too once you find the birdhouse (which is a cute gift in itself). You only have until February 9th though, so don’t delay!

Blogging soon!

I really can’t wait to get started decorating! I hated to show you an empty build, but I knew I wouldn’t get finished in time for you to get the gift. Plus, when you land at ++HY’s++, you can visit a decorated sample, if you want to see what it looks like full of stuffs. Before I knew the build would be a hunt gift, I shot these pictures of Gavin at the sample at ++HY’s++.

Blogging soon!

Another view of the interior. I really love the detail in this build. The counter even raises up and down so you can get behind it to serve your customers. 🙂

Blogging soon!

The fireplace here is a past hunt gift from DIGS, and is not included. I just think a building is bare without a fireplace, so I dropped this one in. Oh! I forgot to tell you that the awnings on the front porch are texture-change; 5 different textures are included.

Blogging soon!

What am I wearing? Well, the “caffeinated raccoon” t-shirt is a free gift for all from PRISM Designs, and my ripped tights are a free gift from {Tilly} on the Marketplace. I really love these studded shoes, which are a subscriber gift from *Cashmere&Keane*; they come in both men’s and women’s sizes with a sock or no-sock option. And my comic-covered bag is the Bag It! Pack It! Clutch It! Hunt gift from Eclectic Stars; two designs are included in the box.

So, there you have it. Nessie and I are going to be busy making plans to decorate our new coffee house! 😀

Because Blondes Really Don’t Have More Fun!

Well, leave it to me to bring up the rear for the FabFree Photo Challenge (which ends today)! Better late than never, right? Actually, I think I was dragging my feet because I’m sooo embarrassed to show you my old avie pictures. But… since so many of you were brave and showed your “THEN” pictures, I figured I should pony up and do the same. No laughing, ok? Or at least, don’t laugh too loudly! 😛

Blogging Soon!

So yeah… that’s me when I first joined SL in 2010. I was a blonde, only because I’m a blonde in RL, and I thought the point of SL was that we make our avie’s look as much like our RL selves as possible. (HA! No idea where I got that idea.) I’m totally rockin’ the Linden Library hipster glasses… and see that shirt? I was so proud of myself for texturing it myself. Yikes! I wore that SAME OUTFIT for about a year and a half, until I found the Marketplace, and along with it, freebies and dollarbies. By then, I’d grown tired of being a blonde, and started wearing *B.D.R.* dollarbie hairs in the “majestic” color for several months (I have no idea where that red sweater came from, and clearly, I hadn’t found new skin or eyes yet). Shortly after that, I turned myself “ginger,” and the rest is history! 😀

As for my “NOW” picture, I’m wearing a skirt, sweater, and poncho set from Prim & Pixel. It’s not their newest group gift, but I really like the casual, boho feel of it, so I decided to show it anyway. Be sure you pick up the gift on the 2nd floor with all the other group gifts, as there is a non-gift version for sale on the 1st floor. My bracelet is a free gift from B!ASTA, and comes with 4 different gem colors. You’ll find the pink gift box on the front desk.

Be sure you check out the FabFree Photo Challenge Flickr group to see the rest of the fabulous entries! 🙂

My New Year’s Non-Resolution

I no longer make New Year’s resolutions. At the ripe old age that I am in RL, I’ve learned – usually the hard way – that just because the calendar ticks over to January 1st, that does not mean I’m ready to make any major life changes. If it did, my house would be clean and perfectly organized, I’d have the business credential I vowed to pursue, my book would be written, and I’d be about 15 lbs thinner. Instead, I get a few weeks of success, followed by months and months (sometimes years) of guilt.

That being said, I still take time at the beginning of every year to think long and hard about life. And when I come up with something that needs fixing – which I usually do – I make a promise to myself (yes, I know that sounds a lot like a resolution, but trust me, it comes with a lot less pressure). This year, my RL promise to myself is to “be in the present.” Simplistic? Yes. But simple? Not so much. To a gal with a full plate, including a business, a family, volunteer work, and SL, among other things, it is very difficult for me to just… be. To stop and smell the roses, so to speak. I’m always thinking about what I have to do next instead of what I’m doing, and I feel like life is moving so quickly that if I close my eyes for 2 seconds, I will have missed something important. I don’t want to wake up one day and find my daughter packing up her car for college, leaving me full of regret for having missed spending as much time with her as I wanted when she was young.

To quote Ferris Bueller, “Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.”

Along those lines, the first major change I made in SL for 2014 was to get a new house and move into the sky. While I truly love the sim where I live, I’d really grown tired of strangers walking into my house – and staying – uninvited. So instead of moving away, I moved up. And while I’m waiting for the movers to bring my furniture, I’ve decided to sit and enjoy the quiet with my furry housemates.

Several items around me are worth mentioning: the lovely, lighted 2014 is the current group gift from ::Fabuleax::, and the vase of flowers behind it is a gift from JoHaDeZ. The packing box and books, as well as the elegant wine lights, are group gifts from tarte. Both my sandals and the cute tissue box on the book pile are Fifty Linden Friday sales items, which, as of this writing, were still on sale for 50L – probably not for much longer, though! The pretty picture on the mantel, as well as the adorable guinea pig are gacha items from ::Fabuleax::; I got lucky and managed to win 2 rares! The guinea pig comes with a cute holding pose, but he got loose, so I decided to let him play with Fiona. And finally, my house of cards was 5L on the Marketplace.

As for what I’m wearing, you can find it at B!ASTA as their New Year’s Resolution Hunt gift. I’m wearing it in honor of the many years in which I resolved to lose weight and exercise.* 😉

May you all have a wonderful 2014 – don’t forget to enjoy it!

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! 🙂

Blogging Soon

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!

Peace and Silence are on my Wish List

Hello! I’ve been under the weather with a nasty cold for a few days, as well as a kid with a fever, and a sick RL dog, so I hope you won’t mind my silly post today. 😀

Blogging soon

These cute, Christmasy pajamas are the Peace on Earth Hunt gift from [Wish List]. There is also a men’s gift in the box, so don’t feel left out, fellas! My festive hair is a FREE gift from Calico Ingmann Creations, and did I mention that it’s a fatpack? Seriously, more colors than you could even imagine. There’s even a HUD so you can change up the colors of the lights, and if you don’t want them in your mouth, you don’t have to have them. 🙂 The pretty snowflake tattoo on my neck is the day 1 advent gift from //elephante poses//. Unfortunately, it’s no longer available, but there are plenty of other gifts to be had, so head over and pick them up before they’re gone! Oh, and my hobby horse/zebra is a gacha from {what next} at The Garden. I’ve been riding it around in my pjs for 2 days now… pretty sure everyone (including my dogs) thinks I’ve lost it. 😉

Blogging soon

Isn’t this skybox gorgeous? And free! Silent Woods is offering it as their Peace on Earth Hunt gift. The pretty trees are included, and you can turn the lights on and off. And there are 9 different window textures to choose from. The other furnishings are by Marmelade, and were for the RFL Christmas Expo, which sadly ended yesterday. Apparently, my RL cold has turned my brain to mush, and I completely missed the deadline, so sorry!

Heading back to bed with a big decongestant now. 😛

My New Nerd Haven

Of all the posts I’ve done here, this one is probably the most like me in RL. The truth is, I’m something of a nerd. So when I heard about the Geeks ‘n’ Nerds fair, you can bet that I rushed over and spent more than a few L’s – and this isn’t even everything! 😀

Blogging soon!

These great skinny jeans are a new gift from *COCO* Designs, and my sweater is a gift from Prim & Pixel (full credits for what I’m wearing are at the bottom of this post). The poster behind me is a Geeks ‘n’ Nerds gacha prize from Sari-Sari. Since nerds love to read, I’ve surrounded myself with tons of books. And I love my little “Potion Master” doll, which I got from the *~HopScotch*~* gacha at Geeks ‘n’ Nerds. Oh, the tray of goodies was the day 1 advent gift from Sway’s; you can no longer get it for free, but it is available for sale for 75L. If you aren’t doing this fun advent at Sway’s, you really should be! Uh oh, I think my dogs are about to devour my snack… bad dogs!

This pretty skin is from a new-to-me store called {AIMI}. It is the current group gift (free to join), and will run you 1 whole Linden. It only comes in the tone and eyebrows as shown, but hey, 1L! My nails are a Slink HUD from *~*HopScotch*~*, which you can find at Geeks ‘n’ Nerds for 50L. Eight nerdy patterns are included. 😉

Blogging soon!

I finally decorated my office space, and I’ll admit that it’s now my favorite space in the house. My desk (including clutter!) and the Eiffel Tower Marquee are both for sale at Collabor88, but since the current round is almost over, you’d better hurry!

Wall Hanging – Alouette Ctrl Alt Delete Key Rack (129L @ Geeks ‘n’ Nerds)

Another view of my new office. 🙂 The shelf and stuffs, as well as the Industrial Chandelier, are available at Collabor88. The surge protector under the desk is from Second Spaces at Geeks ‘n’ Nerds. There are two other versions that will make your virtual space look like a fire hazard with lots of wires sticking out (just like my RL office), but I thought they were a little excessive for the one lamp I have plugged in here. I’m sure I’ll find a place for them somewhere else, though! The Mayfair Trunk is a past VIP group gift from {what next}, and you can still find it in the VIP gift room.

NOTE: The Geeks ‘n’ Nerds event closes on December 8th, and new round of Collabor88 will be starting the same day. Hurry on over if you want any of the great stuffs at either of these events! Please also note that slurls to both an event and the store’s main location are provided in the credits; however, if you want an event item, you need to go there to get it while the event is in progress.
