Red Nose day…

 

RedNose

wearing the Red Nose 

today in the USA its Red Nose Day ~ this started back in 2015 by “Comic Relief” to raise money to help end child poverty ~ even $1 truly helps some child who is starving, with medicine and education.  it’s something I truly believe in, support and always donate what I can on this day.  even in the USA, 21% of children live in poverty and that shouldn’t be ~ sadly some children only get one meal a day when they attend school as I just cannot imagine not knowing as a child where my next meal would be.  no child should be growing up hungry.  need more information as just as this day ends the giving should never stop ~ please click on this link to learn more about what it is all about, where does the money go and lastly if you do want to donate please do…hugzz

 

Boxes…

Boxes

baggage and stuff

one of my favorite bloggers Sadystika Sabretooth did a blog the other day that gave me the idea for this blog ~ and yes in all those boxes I have packed away most of my emotional baggage.  no one escapes having baggage, it is what you do with it that makes a difference guess that is why am holding the violin.  those in the know will know what the violin represents *wink* ~ and while I look at all those boxes just piling up am realizing yeah I got quite a bit.  if I unpacked them they would overfill this room up and more yet they are sealed tight with packing tape.  it has taken me a long time to realize I do not need to open most of those boxes part of just growing.  thanks again Sady and if you would like to check out the blog post am talking about click HERE  Remember a little kindness to yourself and others goes a long way ♥♥

enjoying the day with Scatter & Scamper

sitting here just thinking about people in SL and how generous they truly are.  lately, I have been taking some online graphics tutorials to learn how to bump up my images more especially since I subscribe to them I should at least take time to learn.  if you are wanting to there are some really nice manipulation ones like the one I did from Rikard Rodin who collaborates with Kelvin Designs.  the tutorial said 2 hours to watch and possibly to complete, yet it took me over 4 hours *giggling* not that my knowledge of photoshop is at a beginners level I was pleasantly surprised at all I did learn from this.   not to veer off topic but I did want to incorporate pics from here and needed just the right pose.  yes, there are gobs of poses out there yet I needed a very specific one and to be honest am not a master of using Animare to create one.  finally, I broke down and asked in several groups that I belong to and Ni Avril owner/creator of Lyrium sent me an image that was absolutely perfect.  oooh, not only the pic but out of the kindness of her heart sent me the folder of the whole series.  I was touched by her generosity as I was getting ready to purchase which ones I thought would work, instead, I looked at her Marketplace and bought even more for future uses.  btw the final image that I created with the help of this tutorial “Fairy Specimen” you can see my results on Flickr.  you hear about the drama and the horror stories but you never hear about the good people and all the kindness that is in SL.  if you know of any good deeds please let me know it is always so nice to give shout-outs to those that help without asking for anything in return.  Again I do thank Ni Avril for her kindness as the pose was perfect…hugzz to her, to my readers who truly make my day with the comments and the following.  remember a little kindness truly does go a long way ♥♥

Attention guys…

Relaxing 

yes, this is to all the males in SL looking for mesh clothing that is affordable yet well made with options for several different body types.  a lot of males or at least 90% of males in SL want to look nice for themselves, for their mates and partners.  since the evolution of mesh bodies mesh clothing for males is slowly catching up.  Hoorenbeek is one of those clothing stores that truly produces high-quality clothing for male & female.  my friend Brutus is one that I will say is a very well dressed male in SL.  Hoorenbeek is probably is go to store for everything and was so excited they have started to make clothes for “Signature” the mesh body he has.  everything he is wearing is from that store and I had to take a look.  this store is huge and when you walk in the first thing I noticed was all the signage.  Very explanatory that you need to take time to read.  The layout is clean and simple.

hat, shirt, jeans, sneakers by Hoorenbeek

The creator/owner makes sure each item has a demo so you can try for fit.  And the best thing my friend is so excited about is the owner/creator Ansor Hoorenbeek of Hoorenbeek is in the process of redesigning his clothes to fit specific bodies like Signature, Slink and Belleza along with the Classic *non-mesh* ~ it’s like for us females mesh clothing for most will fit my Maitreya with some adjustments now when I see clothes that are made for Maitreya I know it is going to fit perfectly.  This is how the male population feels too they want their specific mesh bodies to fit just as perfect and Hoorenbeek has stepped up to fill this need.  Guys and females too you truly need to check this store out especially if you are looking for quality, quality and quality clothing.  oooh, what I noticed the owner/creator really gives a lot of options in each item like the crew shirt.  there is a tucked, untucked plus a “chest only” to wear with jackets.  jeans also have various options and come with belts that have options for changes too.   a lot of thought goes into each of these items and as my friend says over and over worth every linden.  The ride is below in credits…♥♥

Credits~first I really have to thank my friend Brutus who time out of his busy day to model and talk about why he loves Hoorenbeek clothing.  btw if males out there know of other places that have stepped up and started making mesh clothing for a variety of mesh bodies please let me know so we can spread the word.  Here is your RIDE to Hoorenbeek ~ take your time to look around ♥ This was all shot on Brutus home with the tractor from hive that he recently purchased at 6th Republic that is closed so check out the main store for hive

upset 

what a day this turned out to be, not wanting to bore you with all that went wrong as you can you tell am a bit upset standing on the back steps that look like they have seen better days wondering where hubby is…called him and I am still waiting… our reservation to this quaint restaurant that is just up those stairs will be lost if he doesn’t get here soon.  at least am looking very chic wearing the latest from FurtaCor that is at Designer Showcase this month.  This is an outfit Marcela is very chic that you will fit in anywhere looking chic and oh so posh.  Even better is the creator gives you a “hud” 10 different textures to choose from including the cute ankle boots. FurtaCor is not the only designer that I am showing you as the eyeshadow and lippy as well ~

Ready for…

Royal

Royal Guest attire

oh yes, am so ready for the royal wedding that takes place tomorrow.  took me so long to find just the right outfit to wear so I did not look out of place or not following the strict dress code they have.  what truly makes this outfit perfect is the dress was on the Fifty Linden list today and snagged this goodie for 50L ~ YES honestly and it is from {Junbug}~ now the fascinator (hat) came from Marketplace only 50L too along with the shoes from Phedora that was a 50L special as well.  do I look like one of the royal wedding guests? I also learned that you must take off any head adornments/fascinators for the night and replace with a tiara.

wearing my [silhoutte summer]fascinator 

really love the beadwork on this gown along with the fascinator this truly make a stunning portrait that will keep to remind me of the royal wedding of Meghan and Prince Harry ~ now those that are joining me to watch if you are in the USA it will be an early one am setting my alarm for 430a so I do not miss a moment.  there will be no maid of honor as she has chosen children to accompany her.  from the flowers to the procession and onto the reception this will be a wedding of so many memories.  Last Royal wedding I remember getting up early was Princess Diana.  now I must carefully take this off and preserve it for tomorrow just wanted you to get a sneak preview of what I will be wearing ~ toodles till next time ♥♥
