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 ♥


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…



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

Wine country…


Yesterday I received a nice note from the owner of Copperfield Winery to come to see the updated winery and WOW am I so glad that I did as I thought it was really nice before it is absolutely amazing now♥ When you TP in you have this gorgeous horse-drawn carriage awaiting you to take you on a tour of the winery or the wedding venue ~ my suggestion is to take at least one as you can always just stand up and walk around to just the place is immense now with 2 complete sims…All the trees are in full fall splendor showing off a variety of autumn colors making so many photo ops for those that love taking landscapes♥


From the layout of the entire winery, there is so much to see that you might have to come back several times to really immerse yourself and feel the full impact of what Copperfield Winery has to offer ~ yes they do have a place where you can pick and stomp your grapes if you truly want to get into the spirit ~ they still have the wine tasting and free bottles for you to enjoy in your own home too♥


Looking for a romantic out of the way place to enjoy a dinner with your sweetheart or even plan a first date with someone special~ this is in the wine cellar very private as you see the table is set with candles along with being able to choose a bottle of wine to go with your meal ♥


Speaking of romance, Copperfield Winery has expanded to include a gorgeous wedding venue nestled among the trees and flowers with a reception w/tables right next to it ~ If you are looking for a place for your wedding consider speaking to the owners for prices ~ what a simply stunning setting to hold a wedding ♥♥ There is a lot more to discover and enjoy at the Copperfield Winery that I do not want to give everything away just will say you do really have to spend time walking around, following the signage to discover all the nuggets Copperfield Winery has to offer ~ The owner Norivne Copperfield is such a delightful person to chat with along with really making this one of the best wineries in SL you will ever see ♥ Here is your RIDE ~ please enjoy ♥

thank you again to Norivne for inviting me ~ as well to my friends who have reached out to me to share some of their favorite places to go ♥  am also inviting my readers to share a favorite place that you might like to share with others ~ take care

Today Dena and I finally got a chance to meet and went to check out the Imaginarium that just opened ~ part of the GimmeGacha group we knew there would be a lot of interesting and free pressies ~ today was no different as I am very selective on which ones I do pull for ~ when I saw this Mannequin Lamp by [Since 1975] I knew what I was going to spend my 75L on ~ was so excited to grab #3 in leather ~ in taking this pic Dena made the suggestion we dress all in white ~ the pic turned out just how I was looking for and knew to really make this pop I would take a bit of leeway in editing bumping up so you could see the mannequin lamp in all its splendor ~ was really worth the trip over as we enjoyed looking at all the unique and different gacha’s ~ absolutely love the creators imagination ~ now where to put it in the house hehehe ~ think hubby will notice or not *giggling* ~ to grab all the free pressies you do have to join the GimmeGacha group but its free and most of the gifts show off the creators talents ♥

standing tall…


Thinking back and remembering all the times that things either knocked me down, blocked my way I just could not crumble ~ not a bravo I was a single Mom and had to keep going my child was depending on me ~ that is how I think of all the single Mothers out there that just stand tall because no matter what comes in your path do not give up ♥ Here I am standing in front of this anchor and those thoughts just whooshed into my tiny brain hehehe ~ exploring again at Achill Island wearing Sn@tch’s latest items ~ the island is made up of rocky cliffs and gorgeous views ~ my outfit is made up of new hair “Kaira” with nice bottles of color choices with me choosing a blondish color from the “Naturals“, the crisscross top Chita has a gorgeous hud of colors and patterns that I have shown off in past blog posts ~

wearing Sn@tch Kaira hair, Chita halter top, and the Boston Mini Skirt 

Giving you a better look at the Boston Mini skirt that is Velvet texture also has you see comes with a hud of various colors ~ I will give huge kudos to designers that create these Huds giving the customers more bang for their buck ♥  Yes you might pay a little more or maybe not as Sn@tch has always provided affordable clothing ~ btw I know have talked about crediting pose makers, which at times is sad when I see them being ignored ~ I will confess there have been couple moments that yes am guilty not saying the pose was from the chair or prop or forgot entirely ~ Image Essentials has come out with a new pose series called “Polished” made up of 5 poses w/mirrors and will be available at Designer Showcase starting Sept 5th ~ start making your list for September ♥ Sn@tch items are ready for you at the store AND remember there is a new “fish for this” outfit that I will be showing you later ~ Rides are below♥♥

beach day…


Yesterday Dena and I finally got together and decided to escape to the beach to enjoy the last couple of weeks of summer ~ exploring a place called Baja Cove part of the Baja Norte sims was fun with the landscaping and sounds of the surf made the entire outing enjoyable…walking around wore us out so we pulled out the umbrella and picnic stuff and found a nice quiet place by the water to rest, relax and just enjoy the day…yes had to bring my book to finish up reading the latest James PattersonTexas Ranger” ~ am a huge fan of his ~ while I read Dena enjoys an ice cold glass of white wine that we brought…as we sit and enjoy listening to the ocean waves am going to also give you a closer look at one of 7 Deadly s[K]ins called Brooklyn


This is the freckled version of Brooklyn in Pineapple and wearing it browless as I do love my Lurid brows ~ younger I used to get freckles and freckles during the summer and got teased by the “mean girls” ~ for me it was no biggie as I was such a beach person I didn’t mind the freckles or the nose peeling even though I wore sunscreen and zinc oxide on nose and lips ~ was my badge to show everyone where I spent my summers in the outdoors enjoying the surf and sand ~ Izara Zuta creator/owner of 7 Deadly s[K]ins gives just enough of a smattering of freckles to look just perfect ♥  This gorgeous skin has 3 versions regular, blushing and freckled so please try a demo on to see how they will look on you ~ you can find Brooklyn at the Blush event till the 24th of September ~ rides will be below ~ Enjoy ♥♥
