no peeking…

NoPeeking
Have you ever peeked inside one of your presents ~ were you happy you did or felt guilty afterward…One time during my high school years I had asked Santa *yes my parents made us still write Santa Lists*, for a pair of these very popular go-go boots *YES am old hehehe* My girlfriend kept pestering me about I should go peek to see if they got them ~ my tummy was rolling at that since peeking was not something I have ever done and really did not want to start now…since she lived 2 doors down and was always at my house she was becoming annoying with that question ~ on and on till I wanted to say shut up, stop, and alright already…end of the story is yes I did a small peek at the box that you could tell was a boot box but no I never fully opened it and the guilt of peeking was horrid ~ a little funny seeing even as a high schooler perfect was not a word to describe me ~ not a horrible person but did all that I could to push my parents buttons to the point of getting on restriction most of my teen years ♥ After my Dad passed away Christmas Eve was never the same especially for my Mom as her and my Dad would share that night putting out the pressies along with stocking stuff ~ one Christmas Eve  I wanted to do something special, before coming home from work, went to her favorite Chinese carryout, and splurged on her favorites that became our Christmas eve ritual for years to come…it is always nice to have those memories to look back to enjoy even if some are sad and not pleasant ♥ ♥ please remember December is the spirit of giving ♥

This was shot at a friends platform with the help of Delcinea and her partner Lord who I truly thank them for setting this up, giving me some suggestions & tips for future shots…

Begins

And so it begins ~ Advent Calendars, the countdown to Christmas, invites to upcoming parties, shopping for pressies as well as all the Holiday fairs, hunts and events…at times if you have a lot of groups it tends to get overwhelming…until the end of the year my inventory will almost explode with pressies, advent pressies and hunt gifts…like the oversize sweater am wearing from !gO! the first day 1 gift in their Advent giveaway ♥  and speaking of pressies my soon to be hubby Brutus went to Epipany and gave me one of his gacha gifts ~

Ever held a wiggling 30 pound St. Bernard puppy? It is a huge struggle *laughing* and yes in my teens I babysat for a family that had just that a St. Bernard puppy, which grew it seemed magically to me each week I would come to sit ♥  The children would laugh and laugh as I would try to catch the puppy to bring him inside ~ this gorgeous puppy am trying to hold is from Jian *creator of those gorgeous animals* Just finishing the POE hunt, trying to rush around to the Advent calendars has been keeping me busy and OMG visiting my favorite Christmas simMidnight Clear that is part of Calas ~ if you are like me and have visited in past years this is a must see Sim during the holidays ♥ will be blogging it soon so please stick around ~ as I get back to the task of sorting inventory just want to remind you please take a moment to check in with friends even if its to say hello as December is a very hard month for a lot with depression and anxiety issues ~ just let them know you are thinking of them if they need someone to listen you are there for them ♥ hugzz…

shopaholics…

Budget

Even shopaholics love bargains and being this is a huge shopping day “Black Friday we both knew that SL is not immune to taking part in …we got a lot from our go-to list “Seraphim” that listed 90% of the stores that are advertising Black Friday specials ~ sadly I wish the list would have included details about the sales and before I begin this is just IMO regarding the “sales” ~ there were a number of stores that really had some fantastic bargains giving you a true “Black Friday” sale…each store did have its own version of sales, a lot was fatpacks only that am not a huge fan of buying ~ some had removed everything except the fatpacks that gave you no choice to buy any single colors ~ yes I understand stores need to make money it is just that I would have bought several different items of different single colors that might have exceeded the cost of couple fatpacks but my choice was taken away.  Again this was just my opinion regarding the Black Friday sale of just selling fatpacks and nothing else…Dena and I got really some fabulous bargains mostly half off or a lot were even under 75L ~ the outfits that we are wearing did come from Fifty Linden Friday event ~ the sweater dresses came from erratic and my hair is from Wasabi ~ now I just have to unpack, sort and put into folders another chore am not fond of is cleaning my inventory that is for another day ~ enjoy your weekend and will be back soon ♥hugzz

trick or…

trick or treat?

I decided to take a look at the Destination Guide that SL provides and did the eeny meenie thing to see where I wanted to end up ~ before I tell you about my trip I will say turning my blog into a destination or travel blog am truly finding my niche as they say and honestly with the pressure of having to meet deadlines and doing things on my time frame am back to enjoying SL as it should be♥  After getting back from enjoying the Copperfield Winery I chose a Halloween theme to go/see ~ and followed one of the editor’s choices that was not right at the top ~ landing at Halloween Rock n Shock you are made aware of houses, pumpkins, and a very inviting atmosphere ~ as you walk around to make sure you grab a free trick/treat bag so when you start knocking on doors the candy has someplace to go LOL ~ free treats and they are calorie free as well hehehe ~ once done you need to hop in the pumpkin coach for a tour ♥

RY1

The pumpkin coach takes you on a rather interesting ride around Doll Island just a warning those dolls are very creepy I would keep your hands and feet in during the ride just a warning…

 

RY3

Once you finish with the tour you can hop out and go exploring like seeing that castle in the sky up there it’s not a bad walk lighted by torches so you won’t need a flashlight just giving you another warning that I am horrible at finding my way back out the door so try to remember how you came in as I spent several panic moments trying to find the door for outside ~ lot of spookiness going on that Island of Dolls so please remember I did warn you~ the entire sim is done really well that you will want to spend time walking around as I only covered a portion of what is here~this was just a peek to what RebelYell has in store for you… I am truly hoping that you are enjoying the way the blog is going as I would love comments or suggestions of places to see and hey they don’t all have to be Halloween themed but out of the way that might be interesting and you would like to share ♥  RL is grabbing me the next couple of days for one of my favorite dog sitting customers but will be back on Sunday ♥  Enjoy ~ ooops here is the RIDE hehehe

what have I…

Where is

Standing here with a torch in hand wondering what I got myself into again ~ its that time again at Calas where masterminds Tymus Tenk and Truck Meredith unleash their sim of Horrors and this year is no exception ~ if you are a fan or follower of Calas you know the month of October is special because Ty & Truck spend the weeks before creating something special for Halloween ~ its name this year is “Maze” ~ the images below are just a teeny tiny peek at what you will experience but remember you are WARNED so visit at your own risk ~

Who is he oh btw you just might run into other visitors that might not be of this world or they got changed once they entered…think that dude can stop dieting he is all bones♥ Where

YES turn on your sounds so you can hear how close those monsters are to you when you travel on the boat tour ~ eyes wide open and look around surely you do not want to miss a thing and remember to DUCK…

Where is

by now you might be feeling the heat but don’t get too close or you might just get sucked into that vortex ~ am leaving you with these thoughts BE WARNED you might not come back BWAHAAAAAAA …here is your RIDE

Shot at various location in the Maze and huge thanks and kudos to all the hard work Ty Tenk and Truck Meredith have put in at this build ~ if you can spare some lindens please try to make a donation to this they work so hard keeping it free and depending on group members and visitors to help support Calas ~

imagine…

Imagine

Standing here in the moonlight, wearing this gorgeous gown by [Roths]these lyrics just slip into my brain ” Imagine there’s no heaven, It’s easy if you try, no hell below us above us only sky, imagine all the people living for today” I  was imagining a world where there was no cancer ~ another friend whispers in my ear today those dreaded words “they told me I have stage 4 breast cancer”  and we both cry as knowing this is a very advanced type with a low survival rate ♥  You hug, you both pray and you support your friend any way you can…The year is 2018 and still there is no cure for breast cancer except EARLY detection ♥  What can you do now you are wondering ~ support Rock Your Rack event that a huge percentage of the profits from designers goes to the National Foundation of Breast Cancer Research ~ this gorgeous Laila Halter Gown in Blush by [Roths] is just one of the items that will be at R.Y.R. starting on the 29th of this month continuing till Oct 13th ♥  My wish that each of you will wander over there to this charity event as there will be hunts, entertainment and yes shopping ~ designers will be graciously creating exclusives and limited editions where you will see what portion of the profits will go towards National Breast Cancer Foundation ~ lets stop imagining and lets make Breast Cancer disappear ♥ thank you
