beach time...

Grabbing food, towel, umbrella and my beach ball I head back to the Baja Sands to enjoy some down time feeling the sun on my face and where I can dip my tootsies in the water ~ oh yes, and wearing a brand new bikini Summertime  by *B.D.R.* (Beautiful Dirty Rich) for those that do not know that abbreviation ~ my newest sponsor has created this uber cute suit with a hud that is just fantastic ~ I love designers that give you a nice variety without having to  spend all of your money on it ~ The hud gives you so many varieties that I truly had fun with this ~ top, bottom, straps, and tiny oval pieces with the left/right breast straps come together ~ each can be a different texture/color ~

Wearing *B.D.R* Summertime Bikini

From solids and patterns, you will enjoy having the ability to keep this fresh and new looking all summer long ~ if that is not enough for you the designer has created an additional Hud consisting of textures only that you can purchase too that is also very affordable ~ another plus for me that again it is nice to see a designer who understands value knowing most residents do not have the monies to purchase a fatpack just to get those special/extra textures or features ~ its a shame that a lot of designers are doing just that ~ ooh it is on Marketplace as well both with a super Promo price ~ Rides will be below♥♥♥

good ole days…

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…

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 ~

Bum View

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 ♥♥

Most of the times when I get annoyed at things am just biting my tongue and moving on but when the same thing keeps happening, again and again, I truly feel the need to speak up ~ biggest thing for me in RL or SL is not being Rude ~ standing beside my sea lions and wearing this gorgeous outfit by I.M. Collection I just cannot contain myself ~ we are all very busy either like myself blogging, taking pics or doing whatever in SL yet for me this is an ongoing issue in various groups that when a question is asked they are completely ignored ~ trying to give the benefit that most are busy or possibly they have it set up not to see incoming chat messages yet 2 seconds later another person asks a question and it is answered immediately ~ again when the person tries to repeat the question they are ignored ~ ummm if you don’t know maybe say something like but to be ignored in a group that is set up to assist for me that is just being RUDE…whew ok that is off my mind now and can focus on telling you about this outfit that is made up of top and shorts from I.M. Collection ~ 5 colorful top combo’s that make up a tank top and a vest, which by the way I absolutely love the designers choice of colors and 5 equally colorful shorts that both go by Clementine ~ also the vest and tank top are separates, which I like especially after trying on just the vest that hides the girls so well you could just wear that alone.  Now the only trouble I could see you having is deciding what color of tops shorts to pick as they very affordable you could choose a couple to mix and match with.  With the heatwave of summer upon us, this will be absolutely perfect to wear keeping you nice and cool.  Yes they are at Designer Showcase for the entire month with demos available for 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 ♥

should I…

Need a ride

Woah, am not sure I can get up on this bicycle let alone pedal around without falling off and injure myself plus look at my shoes they are not for bike riding…Am holding on to the handlebar because it just might fall over on me♥ You see how am dressed to wearing a new outfit Jem from Suki that I really do not want to get it messed up or worse torn ~ Suki has designed this part mesh, part applier that I do need to give you a closer look at the bottom half so you can see just how creative it looks…

Jem by Suki 

Very unique and interesting pattern that comes in a choice of 8 different colors with the pants also matching ~ available at Designer Showcase till the end of this month.  There is a demo for you to try as well if you are unsure of size or just how it will look on you.  Now I need to slowly take this bike back as riding it just is not going to happen♥♥♥

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
