TwoCuties
Dena and I love to get the same type of clothes, skins, and other things with the exception we try not to look like twins or clones of each other…some say if you wear a certain type of head you look the same of others wearing that head ~ both of us disagree especially with the sliders that have been created on mesh heads giving you options to change the shape of your mouth, eyes and other facial features♥  the same can be said for skins as well as they will look not like the designer’s ad unless you have that exact shape and change very little you will look similar…nothing wrong with that as most mesh heads gives you choices ~ with all their sliders can make you look very unique as we all have seen the overblown lips, bums and breasts looking like they will explode at any moment…what Dena and I also agree on is clothing that is made for a specific body like Maitreya for example and you basically have to use a complete body alpha to hide 90% of the skin peeking through…before you comment I will say most of those clothes are not made by unknown designers or those just starting out in fashion either ~ and that makes it sadder that either some are just not taking the time to truly make the outfit fit with that specific body…yes, yes and yes try the demo before you spend your Lindens just there are those outfits that you want even with the knowledge you will have to use those alpha’s…those are both our thoughts on this and would love to hear what you think♥ our outfits come from my over the top gacha addition at The Epiphany hehehe ~ till next time just remember take time to breathe, be kind to yourself and each other ♥♥

not a princess…

Princess
Shakes my hair and repeats I am not a princess…Would be nice to own a Corvette and wear designer clothes but life did not turn out that way…It is all good as I did have the pleasure of driving one when I was much younger and my boyfriend at the time owned one ~ reality he turned out to be an alcoholic and needed someone to drive him around ~ didn’t last long as his sober moments were short and his drunken ones were longer…I did have the long blonde hair with blue eyes that I am pretty positive it was another reason he chose me as you can only imagine the image of pulling up beside me at a stop light seeing me in the driver’s seat and the hot boyfriend next to me ~ laughs ♥  In SL you can have the hot car, designer clothes and not break the bank…no car insurance to pay on that sports car, which in RL will truly cost you a fortune…designer clothes in SL as we all know can be pricey but looking good is not ~ this outfit from the top, jeans and shoes from **ABSEN** cost a whopping total of 10L ~ and yes it is mesh and made for various bodies ~ a truly unbelievable find that Dena Teardrop my bestie turned me onto from Marketplace...I will agree with a lot of people in SL, clothes are expensive but if you spend a little time researching on Marketplace you can find some goodies like the outfit am wearing…Also, a little kindness does bring some nice rewards like receiving a very nice gift from Vasek Petroff, owner of *Petroff* just because I made a comment on his Flickr page that his jewelry is gorgeous and each piece I am in love with ♥ You really do have to admire his craftsmanship in creating some gorgeous pieces…It is always nice to let a designer know that you like their items…just like liking someone’s pics on Flickr or their blog posts…so that’s it for me ~ take care of yourselves and remember to BREATHE…

Enjoy a cuppa…

Cuppa
Come sit with me and enjoy a cuppa tea or cocoa if that is your choice I do have both ~I know that for me getting caught up in traditions that I grew up with not even thinking there are so many worldwide traditions at Christmas as well that I took some time looking for some unique ones to tell you about ~ so sit relax and read on ~ Since 1966, a 13-metre-tall Yule Goat has been built in the center of Gävle’s Castle Square for the Advent, but this Swedish Christmas tradition has unwittingly led to another “tradition” of sorts – people trying to burn it down. Since 1966 the Goat has been successfully burned down 29 times – the most recent destruction was in 2016. ~ the next one sounds scary for children but in Austria on the eve of St. Nicholas Day, young men dress up as the Krampus frightening children with clattering chains and bells. Christmas has never been a big deal in Japan. Aside from a few small, secular traditions such as gift-giving and light displays, Christmas remains largely a novelty in the country. However, a new, quirky “tradition” has emerged in recent years – a Christmas Day feast of the Colonel’s very own Kentucky Fried Chicken. <–that one is interesting ♥  In the 13 days leading up to Christmas, 13 tricksy troll-like characters come out to play in Iceland. The Yule Lads (jólasveinarnir or jólasveinar in Icelandic) visit the children across the country over the 13 nights leading up to Christmas. For each night of Yuletide, children place their best shoes by the window and a different Yule Lad visits leaving gifts for nice girls and boys and rotting potatoes for the naughty ones. Lastly and perhaps one of the most unorthodox Christmas Eve traditions can be found in Norway, where people hide their brooms. It’s a tradition that dates back centuries to when people believed that witches and evil spirits came out on Christmas Eve looking for brooms to ride on. To this day, many people still hide their brooms in the safest place in the house to stop them from being stolen.  So now I hope you have learned some new traditions as I know there are a lot more and does anyone have a family tradition you would like to share ~ please leave a comment and will post it on my next blog ~ thank you again for reading and sharing your thoughts with me as till Christmas my blog will be only about the holidays without the normal rants I have at times hehehe ~ ENJOY & HUGZZZZ

know what…

KnowWhat
I gotta laugh when some say SL and RL are not the same ~ cuz you know what I think at times that it is exactly like RL where you have cliques, mean girls who ignore you in group chats and make anonymous posts about you…guess I should be standing on a soapbox while doing this instead of sitting with my cutesy reindeer…some things never change in 10 years that I have been a resident of SL ~ except thinking people have gotten bolder, more judgmental, and  meaner ~ cripes I get tired of asking questions in groups and not being answered or because someone asks a stupid question and gets a stupid answer from another someone lets all jump on that person when the answer was funny…okay will stop now because first it is getting closer to Christmas and am seriously trying to be more understanding and have more compassion for those type of people that seem to think they are better than others and take it upon themselves to say hurtful things…Let me instead talk about this past weekend with the Monthly Midnight Madness gifts ~ my outfit that I was able to get both Midnight & Noon came from Pink Cream Pie that fit my Maitreya body perfectly and looks very winterish ~ The cute pose/prop from Lil’Bug is a past Gimme Gacha pressie…that’s it for me today and to my friends and supporters of my blog you truly make me smile and I am thankful for each one of you ~ 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

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 ♥♥

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
