Stepping back…

Butler1

A Gentleman’s Gentleman’s Quarters

Oh my gawd I sputter as I grab Dena’s hand ~ we both look around then look at each other in profound wonder as we realize it is not 2018 anymore and we are definitely in another time period~ course I had to grab my cell and take this pic just to prove to everyone that somehow we time traveled ~ Dena reaches over and shushes me “shhhhhh think someone is coming up those steps ~ we watch in awe as a man appears that both our jaw drops as we realize it is CARSON the head butler for the Crawley family of Downton Abbey ~ omg how is this possible that we are looking into the his quarters, which means we stepped back into the 1900’s ~ we both keep staring as we glance around looking noticing all the things and we were able to see that Carson even though he is a servant you can tell by the stuff he has accumulated from the fine wines, the paintings that decorate his walls,  his choice of books that he truly enjoys the finer things in life along with his love of his cat that is sleeping  ~ I try one last time to get a pic of him as he turns around but this fog descends over us and we are back standing in front of my home ~ “WOW, can you believe that” Dena says “and I sure hope that pic of his place comes out so everyone can believe this wild tale”…I scramble to get my cell out to look and see it is a little grainy but overall it does show what we saw…And there is the proof that for a few moments in time we had a peek into the living quarters of the head butler Carson from Downton Abbey ~ Amazing huh …

Credits go to my bestie and blogging partner Dena with this ~ also thanks to DeathRowDesigns for their great Shadow Box series where a lot of the items were used…

Love is…

There is so many words defining what love is ~ the dictionary defines “love” is a quality or feeling of strong or constant affection for and dedication to another,  warm attachment, enthusiasm, or devotion ~ as we all have experienced love in some form like the love of a good book, or the love you receive from your parents or a spouse or even loving Second Life ~ ha ha I know had to get that in since we must love as many of my friends have been here just as long or longer and yes I do love Second Life very much and for me like again so many others do not consider this a “game” ~ it is not like W.O.W or other virtual games where there are goals that you do need to reach and win for me it is this virtual social platform ~ a chance to do stuff that you may never be able to do in the real world ~ have spoke about this topic with friends and most agree and to some it is a fantastic chance to meet people from across the globe and become close close friends like hubby and bestie plus my SL Sister Trish…with that I did grab hubby into posing with me to let you see this cute outfit by Hopes Creations for the Valentine or Not event that is going on till Feb 15th ~ ready or not here it is *giggling*

Love1a

Love is …

The adorable top & skirt Melina Love created by Hopes Creations is for both Mesh & Classic/Non Mesh bodies ~ now I did add the gift *leggings* that was also created by Hopes Creations just to show you how cute they both look on together…what is also nice that the creator has included with the outfit is a hud that you can change the top not only in different colors but different sayings ~ blue will say “kiss me”, green will say “love you and the one am wearing…yuppers so it will not limit you wearing beyond Vday ~ that makes it nice and top and bottom are separates so you can mix and match if you so choose…the tights do come with a variety of appliers so everyone can wear them ~ gonna let you borrow my TAXI to take you straight to Hopes Creation at the event so you can get a good look at this and the other items that are available for you ~ btw the gift *leggings* are 1L, which I think is a huge bargain…alrighty I will be back soon ummm think hubby is trying to get my attention and since he was so sweet to help me with this think I better go see ~ till next time be good to yourself first then to others ♥

Are you…

Yes my question is are you a fan of Valentine Day or one that hides from the day? Myself I do embrace the day sending out ecards to my friends letting them know someone is thinking of them ~ you do not have to be partnered or in a relationship even though it is always nice to have that special someone in your life that might gift you with flowers, cards, jewelry and the obvious candy specifically a heart filled with chocolates…yumm♥ Ok it is a bit early to think ahead xcept there is a great event that just started called “Valentine or Not” that is being put on by The Place Plaza with over 30 designers and will run from now till Feb 15th ~ besides having exclusive items for this there will be gifts set out between 1 & 10L ~ I have the pleasure of blogging this event and we all know that for the month will give you peeks into some of the designer items like the one below…

Shot up on my platform in the sky using this adorable prop “Valentine Love by Mirr0r found on Marketplace ~ using Sexy Candy pose by Something New  

Welcome to the…

It is a new year and for me that gives another chance to accomplish things ~ not sure I like using the word resolution as dictionary definition is “a firm decision to do or not do something” giving this absolute that is so not me ~ for me you need to be able to bend and that is not meaning making excuses or rationalizing why you ate that donut instead of keeping with your eating plan…life is just that things happen and there is plenty of stress that ok you had a donut possibly extra 10 minutes walk adding on will give you that little push needed ~ take the moment to step out and just welcome the new year and why not give yourself a really cute outfit like the one I slipped on as am walking out…

Wearing Eveline by GIULIA DESIGN

This outfit is 100% mesh and includes the top, skirt and boots as I will comment it is an exclusive ONLY to Designer Showcase ~ yes yes there is a close up so you can see the fabulous details

DSJ6b

Eveline closeup 

It still might be chilly where you live but this outfit will heat you up when you are out clubbing ~ from the knit texture, crisscrossing giving a nice peek for the gurls ~ if you look at the skirt and the bottom hem gives it a nice flirty look to it ~ remember that this is not one piece so you will be able to mix/match like putting a cropped long sleeve top ~ possibly pairing it also with tights and there you have a gorgeous winter look ~ this outfit also has gorgeous boots too ~ look below

DSJ6c

Gorgeous boots included 

This will really fit your legs like a nice pair of expensive gloves ~ and a great heel that helps walking in the snow and ice ~ aaaaaand looks fabulous too ~ all in all this is a win win outfit that will be carefully placed in my closet for future wear ~ oh yes I mentioned that this is only available at Designer Showcase till the end of the month and hey why not grab a ride on my souped up TAXI to take you there so you can wander around and enjoy Aisha’s newest build ~ ok I need to run back upstairs and grab my coat am freezing ~ till next time be kind to yourself and others ♥♥

Am I bored…

A lot of people ask that question when you tell them how long you have been in SL ~ since 2008 I have been enjoying life in SL ~ and now even more since meeting my partner Sten 3 years ago along with my bestie Dena 2 years ago as well as my passion for blogging ~ yes blogging ~ I absolutely love getting an item, a outfit, piece of furniture, hair, or even a brand new prop like the one from Image Essentials ~ yes pose/prop makers really help bloggers ~ could be a background or a prop with various poses especially if you can use the prop over and over giving it possibly different looks ~ did I mention Image Essentials gave me the honor again to blog for them ~ Kay does a fabulous job creating poses and props especially this one ~ look below so I can show you a variety of different ways to use it

Waiting1c

Waiting Prop w/Poses by Image Essentials

Am loving this prop that has 5 poses along with the mirrors ~ for those that are a little confused “mirrors” mean there will be right/left poses ~ let me give you a peek at couple of the different ones…

Waiting1a

Waiting ~

This truly defines that title in “waiting” arms up on the railing and again you can either use the right or left side pose ~ here is another one…

Waiting1b

Another pose from this Prop 

Oh yes kind of took a little photographers liberty to punch this image up ~ love the shadows from the tree while taking it in ultra mode ~ can you see how great the steps look with that great concrete texture that Kay used ~ and who is to say that you cannot just stand up to show off the uber sexy outfit Haley by Yeliz like the one below

Waiting1d

Using Prop as a backdrop to show off Yeliz outfit

Truly this is a great prop that am sure you can have fun with in various ways ~ grab my jazzed up TAXI to Image Essentials as it just came back into the store from the 4Mesh event ~ till next time please stick around as you never know what I might talk about, let you see or … hugzz and please be good to yourself ♥

Credits to Kay Weston owner/creator of Image Essentials for this great new prop as well as giving me another opportunity to blog for I.E. ~and for the really nice gift from Hucci my shoes  thank you ♥ This was shot at my home using the Prop w/poses along with using Sultry Pose also by Image Essentials

Yesss another new bed from Once Upon Time one of my sponsors ~ as I had shown you from my November blog post called  Winter Fantasy and I think everyone wanted to also see this is another color so the owner/creator made this again but now in a soft mint color ~ really a gorgeous bed that it will look simply fabulous in any setting and you can see I chose to keep it outdoors so look below…

Winter2a

Latest Winter bed from Once Upon Time

My stag wandered in little confused to the change and wonders where his favorite tree and bushes went ~ yes I did have to reassure him they would be back but he needed patience until I finished this shoot ~ he is kind of like me and patience is not his strong suit but after saying he would be included in this he stood proudly till I took the pic and then heard his mate calling for him he wandered back into the forest…absolutely love the greenery on this bed that for me just screamed to be placed outside ~ as not every bed has to go in the bedroom ~ maybe you have a special spot that this would just fit or hey need a gorgeous new bed then just take my jazzy TAXI go to her main store Once Upon Time and give a look, possibly least try it out ~ huge thanks to Lolly for letting me have the opportunity to let you see her latest creation…hugzz till next time be kind ♥♥
