In to Africa…

It has been awhile since I visited one of my favorite hang out spots where I keep a tent just for those moments that well you know when you just gotta get away or you will scream ~ miles away from anything on a wildlife preserve somewhere in the heart of Africa ~ after speaking with one of the zoo keepers on the preserve he assured me that the tent is still standing but with the flaps down it might need to be aired out ~ off I went to see what is what…

Convair Safari Tent ~ Past Deco(c)rate Box -July

At least the tent looks in good shape but my my the grass is overgrown a lot ~ need to walk around and check the outdoor shower ~ lets hope no elephant stepped on it or the zebra’s left any surprises if you get my drift…

Safari1a

Outdoor Shower by Soy 

Yup it looks in great shape after I trim the grass will be a nice relief to take a cooling shower ~ who’s around to watch except the wild animals *giggling* don’t think am their type anyway…

Safari1

Me and baby Kato 

Is he not cutest little orangutan by Black Bantam from a past gacha this summer ~ course he wants to be held constantly but I do not mind ~ I have gotten most everything set back up in the tent ~

Safari1bb

Inside the Tent

Looks like home away from ~ nice pallet bed that is truly comfy and hung pics of hubby and bestie over the bed, couple of my trunks that I mistakenly left one in the middle of the floor but before it gets dark it will be all put in place ~ microwave and fridge that is running by a generator ~

Safaribb

View from the Steps

With the flaps open on at the tent you can get a nice view along with the to porch chairs and tables ~ it is still early so I set out bagels & coffee ~ oh yes nice little toaster that is also being run on the generator…oh my friends have come to visit please let me introduce you ~

Safari1d

Mr & Mrs Leo of the Lion Family

They always drop by to say hello and to enjoy the warmth from the fireplace ~ those darn monkeys have come back as well and I warned them they better stay outta my tent this time ~ what a mess they made…

Safari1e

Everyone arrives

The view from the chopper that picked me up so I can head out to grab some groceries and supplies as it is about an hour flying time ~ you can see the variety of animals that do drop by and most are non violent as they know my rules…thanks for visiting ~ and will be back soon with another adventure ~

Credits ~ I truly want to let all my readers, followers and supporters know how much I truly appreciate them ~ thank you to each of you that take time to read and send me nice comments ~ hugzz

Ready for action…

I know this might come as a shock to some but I have a secret but shhhh you must not share it with the world until the time comes ~ i’m in training for special ops warrior ~ oh yes and today I was pulled into a practice run but again shhhh will show you whats going on umm well only part of it …

Ready for battle

Bet you barely recognize me in my outfit ~ we even got outfitted with a gas mask just to be prepared for anything that aliens might throw at us ~ was given a time limit to walk around exploring but had to be on our guard ~

Closet6bb

In  position

As my Sergeant yells at me “Enemy at 2 o’clock and I jump down with my hand on my gun sighting my target “got it Sarge” I yelled…but this outfit is a little hard on the knees can you tell ~ the boots are great will keep my shins and feet protected but the rest hmm you think our Sarge was a tad sexist with these?

Closet6aa

Wearing Alfa Zulu Dress & Boots by  !go!

Taking a much needed break and was suggested that I read up on a couple of sections from our manual when that freaky doll twisted her head to stare at me ~ shuddering am like should I answer her or is this another tactic by the Sarge to catch me off guard ~ wish she would stop staring…

Closet6aaa

Walking away 

Before I go any further am learning from the Sarge guess he heard my comment about the outfit that this was worn by the famous Wicca Merlin in another test run back in August and I can if I want read about all about it HERE – Gulping at my error I quickly apologized as we all know if Wicca wore and endorsed it that I should be humble enough not to complain at all ~ she chose it from  !go! a very well known store that also provided the dress and boots are called Alfa Zulu and were featured at ThereAfter Event~ Back on my feet for the last bit of training when…

Closet6b

In My Sights

I twist around, finger on the trigger ready to shoot on command ~ but my Sarge tells me stand down as the exercise is over ~ whew that was rough and I apologize that I could not show you stuff it is very top secret ~

Closet6c

Face of a Special Ops

Yes that is moi behind that mask and makeup ~ will be nice to go home, take a shower and just rest my weary bones ~ was an exhausting day ~ till next time ~ be kind to one another please as you remember life is too short…Peace out ♥

Route 66…

Route 66 was one of the most iconic highways ~ established back in 1926 and stretched for over 2,448 miles starting from Chicago ending up in California ~ even in the 60’s was made popular by a TV series Route 66 and like a lot of things was replaced in the 80’s when the US Highway System did an overhaul ~ today there are still portions of Route 66 left and I found one…

Wearing Inez outfit by Hilly Haalan 

Yes in a little dusty town where those rolling dust balls go past you and the cactus are taller than me ~ Sten and I took to his motorcycle traveling down the highway ~ yes I know not very biker chic like apparel but it was supposed to be a very short ride…NOT! You gotta admit this outfit Inez by Hilly Haalan looks good on the back of his bike…

Closet5bb

A Nice Bum View

I spied a food stand that was from the looks of it on the honor system ~ hungry as I was as the smell from the french fries got to me ~ plus you can see from the back side view of those gorgeous salmon colored jeans they fit like a glove…Pants have the flared bottoms hiding those shoes that also come with this uber sexy outfit ~ oh yes a really gorgeous necklace that I should show you huh…

Closet5b

Necklace included 

Am like pointing for Sten to go check out something *yeah like he listens* giggling ~ but the necklace really compliments this outfit ~ and you can see how the off the shoulder looks plus I just love the folded material is ~ ut oh I hear yelling hmmm

Closet5cc

Shannon Cardalines w/friend having a time out 

Kind of had to break up their loud arguing and just take a breather from each other ~ something about he wouldn’t ask for directions and now they were lost ~ laughing see do men never ask for directions or what…Anyway ~

Closet5a

Waiting 

As I sit and wait for Sten to come back from wherever he wandered off to this is one outfit that looks so put together ~ was not bright enough to put on the sunglasses that came with this and the clutch is stuffed in the saddlebag but Hilly has included Sunglasses, Necklace, Outfit, Clutch and Heels for a super low price that you can get either at her Main Store or on Marketplace ~ Looks like I see my sexy hubby coming back across the road so will say cya soon ~ take care of yourself and be kind to others as life is just too short not too…peace out ♥

Credits go to Hilly Haalan for gracing me with her gorgeous outfits to show off, to Kay of Image Essentials for the Trendy Girl poses I used and for Shannon Cardalines and her friend for letting me make up that story about them having a fight cuz honestly we all know men most times won’t ask for directions LOL…

What a month…

Yes what a month…first being nominated in various categories is so humbling to me am still processing that ~ so again thank you to those that nominated me ~ and Catwa did an update on the Catya head that I wear, which I am so in love with even more – cannot put my finger on all the changes but great job and thank you Catwa…gearing up for next month that is going to be uber busy with Designer Showcase reopening and was told a brand new build that the peek I got is fantastic ~ am also an official blogger for Rock your Rack event that means so much to me as it supports Breast Cancer and monies to those that cannot get mammograms ~ please please as we all know there is not a cure for Breast Cancer BUT and seriously this is a HUGE deal ~ EARLY detection might just save your life, your friends life or someone in your family so yes getting the girls squished into almost flat pancakes is worth it ~ I cannot STRESS this enough as those few moments of pain truly made me a believer when they found a tiny pea size lump ~ yes it was not malignant and was removed but as the Doctors told me it could’ve been and they were glad I came in when I did…

Catya upgrade 

Looks amazing and wearing Truths latest VIP group gift Athena that comes with a really great hud that you can change the looks of the hair ~ always love how Truth comes up with new styles ~ his group fee I think is so reasonable with all the gifts for the year he sends out ~ with the clothing I reached way back into my closet and found 2 items from last years Luxe Box exactly one year ago ~

Wearing Tres Blah sweater & Ison’s Suede Pants 

Both sweater and pants came from September 2016 Luxe box ~ these are classic items that for me are timeless ~ tres blah also included a nice hud another plus and just love the textures and the colors you got to choose from ~ and the suede pants from Ison also came with a hud that has some nice soft suede colors to choose from ~ I love the idea of the subscription boxes as they give you a variety of designers that you might never of heard about as well for the money each box is well spent ~ giggling must be why am so addicted to them saves me a lot of searching ~ anyway that is about all I have for the moment ~ till next time please be good to yourself first then be good to others ~ hugzz to all ~ peace out ♥

Its Magic…

Yes sometimes well possibly a lot of times there is magic that happens and like with anything you just gotta believe ~ was trying on this slinky gown when this voice asked “do you believe in magic” ~ am looking around thinking who is talking to me ~ but I did think to myself course I believe in magic ~ I love watching magic ~ the voice said walk into the water and you will see and feel the magic ~ OH MY as my eyes got bigger and looked towards the pond where oh yes there is something magical in there cuz I saw it and have proof but why should I walk into the pond and get soaked…Crazy thing I just took a leap and headed to our little pond ~ and oh my the calm that came over me as well don’t they say images are worth more than words…Look ~

Levit1aa

Arms open Wide floating 

The pond had turned into this gorgeous pool of blue water with the clouds reflection as I stood there my arms open wide waiting when this complete sense of calm came over me and that voice said lean back ~ ok ok am a little bit crazy but what do I have to lose except wet hair and a ruined gown…but umm I did it

Levit1c

Leaning back and floating

The water felt softer than I ever realized ~ my eyes were fully opened but I was only focusing on the feeling and nothing more because it was simply marvelous ~ the voice again said lean back further…and I did

Levit1cc

All the way back

My hands were in the water except all I felt was this softness and yet I was not scared at all again the calmness and peace just surrounded me ~ probably must of been in shock and at the least worried about that voice in my head but no worries just this dream state…

Levit1b

Floating on top of the water 

I was floating just barely on top of the water and the strange thing is through all this was I remained completely dry ~ really weird again none of those thoughts were inside my head just peace as my eyes were open but looking up at the bluest skies with the fluffiest clouds ~

Levit1bb

Arching as I begin to stand back up

My body started arching as I because my ascent back up if anyone had of been around they would of never believed what they were watching ~ the movements were smooth and graceful ~ then suddenly am standing back on my grass wondering…

Levit2

Was it Magic??

My gown is dry, my hair is dry and am wondering was it magic or did I just zone out for a few moments but I shrug and smile because whether it was or wasn’t those moments were truly calm and peaceful ones …So would you like to have some magic in your life? You gotta head over to Twe12ve event and search out Image Essentials for their Levitation Series poses ~ Kay Weston owner/creator has done an excellent job creating some magic ~ will leave you with this song ~

Going Steampunk…

Digging into my closet tossing out things that are over 2 years old by a method shown to me by Kay Weston and I love her dearly for this ~ will try to explain in my next post ~ for the moment I have always enjoyed Steampunk as it is unusual and very unique ~ there was a Sim that I cannot find anymore that was completely Steampunk ~ even had this really interesting story behind it ~ sadly like a lot of things time moves and changes happen ~ Sten was standing around and made the comment that he had the perfect vehicle as well ~ YAY my sweet hubby who is always so supportive pulls out this craft and takes us on this wild ride making me almost lose my breakfast as he decides to zip up to a height so fast I barely had time to blink ~

Closet3aa

Sten and myself in Ananke “Nessie” Explorer

Sten tells me all the amazing features this has like warp speed which I begged him not to demonstrate again since I got the gist when we first got into this contraption ~ he explained it can go underwater without drowning us as well it has a search light ~ overall it really fit the steampunk theme I was going for so ummm yes my hubby I do thank you for this ~ Not sure where he got it but if you like one it is on Marketplace only as the creator no longer has inworld store ~ she really has created various Steampunk vehicles with so much detail ~

Closet3a

Back on Ground

Whew we made it back safely and hubby put it back on its docking ~ the exterior hatch opens up and you see I can sit on the edge giving you a great view ~ the outfit I pulled together was from couple of gacha’s like the Planner Hat from a past Guardian Gacha event, which can find some of these hats by 8f8 on Marketplace  ~ the goggles are over 2 years old and was created by Bauhaus Movement & they were a gift at the Shiny Shabby Anniversary celebration ~ The outfit “Amber” was from last Decembers Forest subscription box by Belle Epoque ~

Closet3

My version of Steampunk

With that I added on socks from ! go ! from her inworld store and the shoes from [BREATHE] that also came from a past december Forest box…there are just somethings I cannot get rid of like shoes, socks, hair, and hats ~ ok maybe a lot of things I cannot get rid of huh *giggling* ~ just little of this and a little of that with your creative mind and you can pull together a very unique look ~ just takes experimenting and what you think looks good ~ this was fun putting together and possibly gives you ideas on how to create your look ~ that is why I love mixing and matching ~ please stick around to see what I come up with next ~ and yes one last thing if you do like my blog you can make sure you don’t miss anything please click on the follow ~ hugzz and remember to be first good to yourself then to others as life is too short not to…peace out♥

Credits ~ To all the amazing designers/creators that I used I so thank you and please keep creating…my amazing hubby Sten you know how I truly feel and thank you for putting up with me in my strive for that perfect shot and a lot of crankiness at times…love you!

Another Look…

Hilly Haalan has done it again in creating another look using her talents with her huds ~ her latest release “Charis” that consists of two separate pieces but honestly together they make a WOW moment ~ for those from down under that are starting to come into summertime these is a piece for your closet and those like me that fall is drifting in slowly am saying who doesn’t love that hot hot outfit to wear to go clubbin in…Either way no one loses when you slither into this ~ ok ok you wanna see right…

Closer Look 

From the wraparound neck straps that are holding those girls up proudly to the belt, and the bow giving you a very nice peek at those gorgeous thighs ~ this entire look just screams SEXY…

HH8bb

Bum View 

Oh you might ask does this make my bum look bigger ~ answer no it makes it look fantastic!!  As you can see there is a nice bare upper back that those who like a tat can proudly show it off ~ and the side look well keep everyone taking a longer look when you either strut into an event, down a runway or dancing the night away keep cool as ice…what I like even more is the inclusion of 2 huds one “Glam” the other “Solids” and yes you will get to see
