Sitting here on my steps thinking the year is almost over and how many changes took place ~ ending an SL relationship, changing the blog, reconnecting with someone very special and finding that some things never change like my inventory that is filled with unopened boxes from the Shop & Hop event that Linden has put on ~ if you have not made it yet I urge you don’t procrastinate and not go ~ there are 5 sims Aurelian, Gilded, Golden, Halycon, and Tinseled with gifts from over 100 Designer stores like Apple Fall, Blueberry, Fancy Decor, Salt & Pepper, What Next, and yes various stores just for the men as well with gifts in every store ~ as well they are cutting their prices drastically to entice you♥  Over the next couple days will be showing some of the gifts that I got from this event ~ so I better get my butt to open all those boxes that I have piled up in the living room LOL ~ ooops forgot about what am wearing to tell you it was a Marketplace find that includes the outfit, shoes, belly gems, ankle bracelet ~ till next time please take time for yourself to breathe ♥♥ hugzz

Matching

Some may think its corny or way too not chic yet for me I do think its sweet when at times you wear matching tops ~ oh am not speaking about a daily or even a weekly thing ~ no that gets to be a tad creepy in my eyes seeing adults always dressed alike ~ the sweaters are from The Arcade by Bleich ♥  oh looking for more gifts head over there and in the middle there is a huge Christmas tree that you can see underneath a lot of gifts ~ still sorting stuff from all the Advents and group gifts ~ speaking of gifts for those that are members of Calas Ty and Truck have the rather fabulous scarves that you see wrapped around our neck as gifts this year…Little Frenchie is a past gift and is still out at the Pavilion for those looking for a cute pet…I am still curious about your thoughts if you think matching holiday sweaters are just creepy or they are alright in moderation…RL is screaming as today is my appointment with a surgeon nothing major ~ before I head out I wanted to comment on the nice remarks that have been getting on my blog posts ~ thank you so much for those as they do mean a lot to me ♥♥ till next time as it gets closer and closer to the big day take time out for yourself ~ enjoy a moment of peace, sip on your favorite drink whether hot, cold, alcoholic or not hehehe…

This truly is my favorite time of year and Christmas is my favorite holiday…did not matter if I barely had enough money to buy gifts or all that overtime made buying gifts easier I still love this holiday ~ for me with Christmas its the feeling you get by listening to Christmas carols, watching all those sappy Christmas movies like “Its a Wonderful Life” w/Jimmy Stewart that I end up bawling over even if I have never missed a year watching that movie…today am sitting with my tablet not even feeling the snow start falling, watching Pentatonix YouTube Christmas videos ~ O M G I am such a fan of their talents, the music and the voices that make up this group ~ they have a new Christmas album called Where are you Christmas ~ for those that might not be in the know of this group they are an Accapella group that I first saw on the reality show “The Sing-Off“, have been a fan ever since ♥  Guess, I should get up and go inside before I am covered in snow as now it is really coming down.  Today will start wrapping pressies in RL and sorting out more of my inventory from all the advents, hunts that I have done and the boxes are still cluttering up my inventory ~ It is hard to personally thank each and every designer that has given gifts at the Epiphany, Arcade, Gimme Gacha, and from the POE hunt ~ yet I appreciate all the gifts as most designers do truly show off their talents with their gifts ♥♥  what I can do is thank all of my readers ~ ones that take time out to comment and let me know they appreciate my blog as it makes me smile knowing♥ hugzz to all and remember December is the month of giving ~ give someone a smile or a hello today ♥

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 ♥♥

it begins…

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…

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

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
