Risks…

Taking Risks

Have you ever taken a risk and wondered afterward was that a good thing? Like here I am standing on the railroad tracks risking my life just to get an interesting shot wearing this gorgeous gown “Summer” by DE. Boutique ~ this is SL so the risk was very slight and plus in RL this is completely illegal even if there are no trains coming ~ there are also other types of risks like changing jobs, moving to a new state even possibly cutting your hair ~ might seem silly but you have to open yourself up and take a leap forward. I took 2 risks today ~ trying on this gorgeous gown “Summer by DE. Boutique with prints as I just wasn’t sure how it would look on me ~ looks fantastic and the hud with 8 different textures gives you a variety.

Ferna in Pineapple by 7 Deadly s[K]ins
As well as risking look maybe a little different by trying on a new skin like the one am wearing Ferna by 7 Deadly s[K]ins that is now at Chapter 4 for only one more day so grab the ride at least try on the demo as most items at events are lower ~ Maybe risk could mean failure except that is life we have to take risks to learn, experience and live ~ yes live ~ way too many people just exist in this world without truly living it ~ take a risk and go over to Designer Showcase and try on this gorgeous gown Summer by DE. Boutique ~ might not be your style or colors just try on the Demo to see how it looks on you ~ there are 8 prints in a hud that come with this dress ~ while you are there look at all the other items DE. Boutique has to offer ♥ all affordable and remember time is ticking so take the rides below ~ will leave you with this quote that I saw long ago and think it is fitting ♥♥

Take a risk – don’t always play it safe

Mancave…

ManCave

Every male likes his own space so Dena and I made a choice to make a Mancave for Sten ~ umm it was very temporary ~ this is truly Dena’s niche in decorating as I love the little touches and how she has incorporated them all ~ most of the items came from past subscription boxes by Deco(c)rate ~ still sad they are no longer as I truly thought they were a very successful subscription box ~ when you look around you might notice there is no TV as Sten has said he is not a big watcher, he is a cat fan so you can tell that I placed 2 of them for him…we truly had fun doing this and already thinking of our next project ~ before I list all the credits I do want to thank all my followers and supporters as it is always nice to see more people following my blog ~ very very appreciated ♥♥ Lastly HUGE thank you’s to Dena my bestie who really did an exceptional job on this ~ hugzz♥

good ole days…

Carefree
Yes, those days when things were simpler ~ no cell phones to distract, no social media to keep up with ~ just to enjoy the simple carefree days where couples would stroll hand in hand, maybe acting a little silly just for the fun of it, where life truly was slower. The younger generation *20 somethings* probably would be shocked to know that you can survive without a cell phone stuck in your hands ~ there were things called pay phones, or waiting till you were home to make that all important phone call to your friends.  I am not a cell phone person ~ yes I have one out of necessity but it is not in my hand 24/7.  When I was living at the beach and would take walks on the boardwalk sad to see people having their heads down looking at their cells ~ yes sad because life was moving around them and most were missing it ~ more people need to put down their phones and look up at the world and start seeing what they are missing ~ like this very sexy outfit by AnaSTyle called Angelia that is at Designer Showcase till the end of the month.  Let me stop trying to grab Sten’s hand and show you just how this looks…

Carefree1
Sten in DCD apparel ~ I am wearing AnaSTyle Angelia in Black 

Notice the huge ring that is holding the top and skirt together ~ very sexy ~ there is one in the back as well ~ and yes in the first image you see the boots that are also included all you have to do is choose between white or black ~ sexy and fits perfect as the designer has made it for almost every body type ~ it has hubby’s seal of approval ♥, Yes the necklace does also come with it that I will be showing a closer look at that soon in my next post ~ alrighty Sten and I are going to enjoy some alone time as RL has been keeping in very busy ♥♥

oooooooh this bodysuit is not just being sexy it is very xrated and not for the shy or prudish ~ this bodysuit “Take me on the Floor” by *B.D.R.* is one that truly wants to stand out ~ coming with a hud that is also unique with being able to change the pasties and the bodysuit individually giving you the ability for a variety of looks ~ yes I will now stand up and turn around for you ~

When I first tried this on I do have to laugh thinking I needed to use my alpha layers to cover up and wondering why it is not working as my brain was slow to realize after looking at the ad hehe it was meant to look like that ~ okay little slow and I got it that is why am telling you ~ This bodysuit called “Take Me On The Floor” is exclusive to anyBody event that is ongoing to the end of the month ~ Rides will be below ~ there will be a demo there so you can see what it looks like on you ♥♥

Wash day…

Wash Day

Monday is usually wash day for some and I remember being younger much much younger and helping my Mom hang laundry out on the lines as honestly, we did not get a dryer till our family moved to a brand new house that came with washer and dryer ~ for the most part and please correct me but Americans the majority do not hang laundry outside ~ reason too many communities think it’s unsightly having laundry strung up in peoples back or side yards…now you will see it more in the rural areas or on farms ~ the many places I have lived in there were huge restrictions on laundry lines ~ this pair of Thais overalls from Liziaah just fit in perfect for hanging up the wash ~ casual yet you could really dress this up with heels, nice updo, fancy necklace and go out partying or without all that be comfy and right at home on a farm, sitting back on your deck enjoying your morning coffee or whatever you wanna do ~ 4 different options that one should appeal to you to try on the demo that is waiting at Designer Showcase this month.  I am a true overalls gurl wearing them almost year round and my friends would tease me constantly wondering did I not have any other clothes but overalls ~ hey they are comfy, you can wear a cute bra like these come with, a tank top or if you really daring just the overalls themselves.  Now I do have to finish hanging this load up as I promised the Granny that lives in this house as she snagged me when I was walking around Glandium  and stumbled on this cute farmhouse ♥

Looking for something fun to do ~ grab a friend or come by yourself to enjoy an hour of roller skating and listening to some great tunes to skate by…Truck and Ty owners of Calas have set up this fabulous Skate-O-Rama till the end of the month.  Do you have to belong to the Calas group to come absolutely not if you already have your skates or you can join the Calas group, which is free and get a pair of your own set of roller skates…Calas is also known for their live music and there is even a stage set up for the concerts with some very well known SL Singers like Savannah Rain, Voodoo Shilton, and Samm Qendra…such a variety of singers for every genre ~ if you are looking for the Calas Music Schedule please click HERE ~ oooh btw if you get hungry well they got it covered too

Do you see the special ~ Skunk Surprise 

There is a great Skate-In Diner with a limitless variety of items that you can sit in a booth still listen to the great tunes ~ ooh yes even there is dancing while you skate around ~ and if you are into muscle cars and hot bikes you gotta take a walk around the parking lot and check them out…Again I will say the time passes quickly, skating, listening to some great tunes as Truck really knows his music ~ whatcha waiting for as your hot red 54 Chevy is waiting to take you there ~ enjoy ♥♥

Friends
Circle of Friends w/ me, Delcinea and Shari

Today I ask how big is your circle of SL friends ~ are you one of those that have a ton of friends that your barely speak to or someone like myself as my circle of friends is on the small side yet still we talk or say hello at least either once a month or more.  I also will admit that a lot of friends I do have are when I first started back in 2008 with those friends exchanging RL cards during the holidays and special occasions.  We know each others RL names, where we live and other facts.  Skipping to the present my close friends we really sit and chat ~ bestie and I have spent a lot of times just sitting around for hours laughing, listening to each other either whine, rant or even cry.  Friends support each other and I truly have some truly good friends like the ones in the above pic that I asked almost basically at the last minute to assist me with this newest pose from Image Essentials called “Circle of Friends” ~ what was nice was no hesitation and they were right there for me ~ that is truly a sign of a good friend and I sincerely thank both of them…This pose can fit up to 5 friends and is exclusive to the Designer Showcase  now till the end of the month ~ have not wandered over there yet as am waiting for the crowds to die down a little but I will ~ till next time remember just a little kindness goes a long way ♥♥♥

Credits & Kudos to Kay Weston of Image Essentials for creating this interesting set of Poses “Circle of Friends, to my good friends Delcinea Sapphire and Shari Cortes for jumping up to help me out ~ hugzz to both ♥  Rides to Image Essentials & Designer Showcase
