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…

Cocoa anyone…

CocoaAnyone

Did you know there is a difference between hot cocoa and hot chocolate? According to Google and a Chocolate website there are differences as I thought it was only an usage of different words ~seem there is no real definition of either at least in today’s world yet “Traditionally, hot cocoa is a thin, sweetened beverage, made from cocoa powder, sugar, and milk. Hot cocoa may or may not contain other flavorings, such as vanilla, liqueur, or spices. Hot cocoa is often less rich and sweeter than hot chocolate. Historically, hot chocolate (also called drinking chocolate or sipping chocolate), is made with actual chocolate (often shaved or ground into fine pieces so it melts quickly). Because of the high-fat content of chocolate, hot chocolate is richer than hot cocoa. Hot chocolate made be made with water (traditional in some parts of Europe) or with milk. It is usually less sweet than hot cocoa, and many makers of hot chocolate pride themselves on having their product be a thick, bittersweet beverage.  Interesting to me my Mom would say hot cocoa because she made it from Hershey’s cocoa powder, sugar, and milk ~ when I got older would add in Baileys to give it a nice little pop.  I wonder how many are doing the POE hunt as this year there are a lot of nice things like the dress am wearing is from the hunt *check credits* ~ for those that are counting down till Christmas you have 18 more days till the big man delivers pressies ~ hugzz to all and to each of you remember to be kind to one another ♥♥

city sidewalks…

NewYork

“City sidewalks, busy sidewalks
Dressed in holiday style
In the air, there’s a feeling of Christmas
Children laughing, people passing
Meeting smile after smile
And on every street corner, you hear…”

New York City is a place that truly celebrates their holidays ~ from the Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade to the Christmas tree lighting ceremony in Rockefeller Centre…not a place I would live in because things are hectic, people rushing around and at times a little bit scary for me…yet as a past visitor of that Big Apple it is marvelous to go visit, see the amazing sights especially at Christmas time when you can go ice skating right next to that huge Christmas tree, walk along Fifth Avenue, grab a bag of those delicious roasted chestnuts from a street vendor and many other touristy things that NYC offers…

Also, the infamous New York subway that is an experience within the underground you can hear live musicians ~ some famous ~ some not…you never know what you will see down there ~ feeling festive wearing one of the Advent gifts and the necklace that is also a pressie from the Poe hunt *check credits below*  That’s it for now with the exception of a little reminder regarding those suffering from depression as it gets closer and closer to Christmas a lot of individuals truly struggle and need compassion along with making sure they are aware you are there for me even if it is just a short call saying “hello was thinking of you” even a short text might just brighten someone’s day ~ hugzz ♥♥

Coat time…

Coat Time
Its coat time and I love having to put one on to go outside ~ not a super heavy one as for myself just gets too hot…not sure about you but a lot of the times my choices for  clothes reflect what I would truly wear in RL and yes there are a lot of exceptions like those ever super sleek gown that ummm would not be something I would wear now cuz it might be a little cringe-worthy hehehe…specially since am not in my 20’s and weigh what I did then ♥  This coat is one that I had till it was getting raggedy and not even would I donate it…Hilly Haalan is the creator of this and if you are fans of her stuff it comes with a hud for the coat and the sweater underneath along with the fact you can hide the sweater ~ great price and I found it on Marketplace one night when I was browsing for bargains…funny I was all set to do this rant about a couple of issues but tis the season to be nice and not naughty as we all know that is for me the norm LOL ~ what I do want to mention December is a rough month for a lot of people especially those already dealing with depression ~ the holidays make it rougher with missing family, friends that have passed or no longer with them due to divorce or separation ~ little kindness and patience are needed just remind them you are there for them and mean it ~ saying hello, sending a short email or whatever you can to tell them they are in your thoughts ♥  hugzz

how did we…

How did we

ummm am not sure how we ended up with packages squished behind our backs, just know bestie Dena and I do get ourselves in some predicaments *giggling* speaking of which, Dena was scrolling through the archives and was mentioning something that I realized her and I have known each other for 3 years ~ WOW that has to be a milestone since I will admit honestly to the fact that I can count on my longtime female friends on one hand…most seem to just fade away or because am not truly known for being politically correct will say what’s on my mind and poof have offended and am off their friends list ~ oh Dena and I have had our ups and downs yet we have survived as truly best friends do ~ we know each others RL history on things, we voice whenever possible because her and I at times will get the giggles and it just doesn’t come across in text that you are laughing so hard or that tone when you go “seriously”…we discovered mesh bodies together that was a totally new experience for both of us since we were so clueless on how to even put it on us hehehe, we can both calm each other down when one of us has screwed up our head or something that we need one another to figure out the answers…same with mesh heads even though Dena did get hers before me and talked me through the process, which I thank her for a lot ~ at times am sure her eyes roll back into her head with my actions or things I have said as again my mouth at times has no filter ~ looking at the above pic am sure we thought we were trying to figure out how to carry all those boxes, or possibly we were just being us in a silly moment that best friends have ~ gotta say am so grateful for her being my bestie and am wishing each of you find or have that bestie to share and make memories in SL ♥♥ till next time be kinder to yourself as you are the most important person in your life…

SL Winter…

Winter1

Its beginning to look a lot like Winter Wonderland around SL and I absolutely love it ~ especially with none of the biting cold effects that come being outside…wearing my heavy warm sweater by Perch that was a prize from the WOH, my Ugg boots and yes my hat because where I went it was snowing a lot…  Footprints in the Snow is a gorgeous sim with a lot of photo ops for you to take ~ if you are not too noisy you can get up close to the reindeer like I did *grinz* Winter is one of my favorite RL seasons and the creativity is limitless in SL that I am finding bunches of sims that have changed to winter that I will be exploring ~ there will be coming up soon the start of Advent season with various stores participating that I will try my best to keep you informed ~ Peace on Earth hunt starts also and that one is probably the biggest hunt of the season ♥  December will be a very full month that my wish is you will stick around with me ~ until then remember to take time out for yourself and this is your SL make the most out of what you want ~ hugzz♥♥

but first…

End of Autumn

ok case in point about “but first” as I was ready to do this blog had the title all picked out, image done and gawd I forgot to write down the title but first I had RL stuff laundry, etc to get done, then I remembered to check online email which OMG now I remember what this was *sheesh ~ whew good thing my brain kicked in reminding me what it was ~ SEE as I was telling Sady in a comment of her blog post how many have those “but first” *giggling* anyhooo first let me apologize to the bloggers that I do follow that I have been so lax in checking my SL email where their blog posts come to me and finally I checked it was like overflowing…not sure of what you all do with SL/RL emails but I do try to keep some separated with the exceptions of offline messages and a couple others as the rest goes to my SL email account I set up more to catch overflow and all the blog posts that I do follow ~ honestly I do try to either like and/or like & comment on those as I do have several favorites that I enjoy readying like Sady’s, Moz just to name a couple.  Most of the bloggers work hard creating scenes, explaining clothes and such that they deserve comments or likes ~ plus there are some that are very awe-inspiring that I love looking at like Kess Crystal who creates some amazing scenes…anyway am setting goals for next year that I will tell you about later…thats about it since RL is grabbing me again and tomorrow I have to get a CRT scan on my face or rather my sinuses as am not looking forward to that one bit…cya soon ~ hugzz ♥♥
