Change is good…

Its me again Sten aka Starr’s hubby wanting to sneak back in and tell you about my favorite store Nerenzo”s ~Since Starr was getting tired of cleaning that huge house *just joking about my lovely wife doing all the cleaning* but she did mention it was too big for us and used up a lot of prims ~ that meant house looking for something we both liked and we made the decision to go for something little more rustic with lower prims ~ we found a unique barn by Barnesworth Anubis that just fit the bill ~ now this gave me the chance to hustle over to Nerenzo’s and look for other furniture that would fit into our rustic theme ~ Vic Nerido has a wonderful habit of giving out a group gift that gives you a taste of what will be up for sale. This pallet chair blends in perfectly with our new Barn home.

Pallet Chair by Nerenzo ~ Group Gift 

No need for poseballs and these chair has some amazing animations ~ some nice and well some very naughty ~ as you can see one of the cleaner ones that Starr and I used…

Chair1

Myself and my lovely wife 

As it is a group gift exclusive for group members you just might want to consider joining his group as he is always generous in the monthly gifts ~ the poses are so natural and never stilted as with most of his items they tend to be on the low side for prims another plus ~

Chair2

Nerenzo floor pillow

This has some great features that you can change the pillow textures, loads of animations that do have some very very naughty ones as well as single sits and those romantic couples ones like the one below…And it is available on Marketplace and at his store inworld…

Chair2a

Cuddling with wife

This is a great outdoor item complete with pillows, pillow holder and fireplace. Also includes a nice deck to set it on if you need it. As with all of Vic’s items, it has some great very natural poses both romantic and naughty as you can see from the pictures.{My lovely wife wouldn’t let me post the pic of her getting spanked over my lap though
…bummer} We also bought a cute little bed that seems to made from old pallets…
but that’s for a future story!!  Thanks Vic for the wonderful creations,
promos and gifts. You have a great place to shop!! Let me grab Starr’s taxi to take you to his INWORLD store and also Marketplace ~ Speaking of my sexy wife she has been nominated for a bloggie award and I know she would love to have your vote you can click here to see ~ thanks and till next time take care…

Am so Honored…

I started blogging back in 2014 and to honestly admit I probably was semi clueless on blogging in SL but I started doing my research by reading other bloggers especially those that I looked up to like Strawberry Singh who am now am in awe of her vlogging ~ her voice is one I could listen to all day and she has nice honest but kind opinions on things she is not quite thrilled with – that is a trait I admire ~ now we rush to present day where am a little more experienced with my images, my wording and making sure I do my very best in either presenting a sponsors items or showing you places to go and events to attend…One of the groups that I am a member of Blogger & Vlogger Network is hosting the Bloggies ~ sort of like the Avi Choice awards but this is truly just for blogger/vloggers in various categories ~ and I am tearing up while I say this to you that  I have been nominated in 5 different categories ~ WOW this is so humbling to me as I look at those other nominees and I am truly and sincerely honored ~ thank you from my heart ♥

The Bloggies - I've Been Nominated! YAY!

Thank you 

If you would like to vote for me please click on this LINK ~ again I truly thank each of you that did take the time to nominate me ~

HUGZZZ!!!!!

 

Baa Baa Sheep…

Sounds like a nursery rhyme doesn’t it ~ giggling was trying to think of something cutsy for the title since I traveled back to Binemust and went through the door marked “Lighthouse” ~ really if you have NOT made the trip over to this SIM you must especially if you are into taking any type of pics ~ oh yes if you are into windlights Jay Battlescar has some great new ones that you will see in a couple of the pics I took click HERE to check his out ~ Binemust has so many areas that I am finding each one interesting and unique as I break out one of my outfits from the now defunct The Forest subscription box ~ sadly they are no longer but still the clothes are timeless as you will see in the following images ~

Baa Baa Sheep

Autumn is almost…

Yes Autumn is almost here according to the Farmer’s Almanac and according to Wikipedia it happens approximately the same time every year September 22 ~ where daylight will get shorter, temps will get cooler xcept those places that never cool off…and the leaves start changing into those beautiful fall colors that I so enjoy ~ where I grew up on the East Coast there would be a rush to visit Skyline Drive every year to see the majestic trees bearing their proud red and gold leaves ~ truly a sight that everyone wanted to see and the traffic jams were legendary ~ in SL I always make a point to travel to Calas to check out the fall landscaping ~ at my home am just starting to gear up to decorate ~

Closet1

Setting out pumpkins

From fall leaves, pumpkins, and chairs with blankets it is a fun time for landscaping ~ I even pulled out a pair of tights to slip on under this rather short but cute mini dress ~ along with slipping on a pair of boots ~

Closet1b

Ten Reasons 

As I try to express ten reasons why I love Autumn let me just say the #1 reason is cooler weather ~ am so not a hot weather fan at all and the only time I enjoy summer is with ocean waves washing over me and sitting at the beach ~ I absolutely love fall and winter my 2 favorites seasons ~

Closet1c

Thumbs up 

Giving a thumbs up to this cute outfit as it is still warm enough during the day to wear this absolutely adorable top by Belle Epoque called “Maddie” that was from a past Forest subscription box ~ oh and have to bring attention to this cute “Counting Hands Hud” that Kay Weston of Image Essentials has created ~ yes there are 10 different finger poses counting 1 thru 10 ~ The below pic will show you ~

closet1e

Counting Hands Hud

Guessing I should get back to landscaping and working on inventory as I never do keep seasonal clothing unless it is very specific as I giggle that I did find a top that will be sporting come Christmas time that a certain prop maker made ~ till next time please be kind to each other ~ life is just way too short to be mean ~ hugzz ♥

Credits go to Kay from Image Essentials for giving me the opportunity to blog her items and thanks to all my readers, supporters and followers it honestly makes me smile when I see a comment or a like…thank you

All that Jazz…

If you have ever been to New Orleans and strolled down Bourbon Street you would hear the sounds of jazz coming from tiny little bars that sit in between restaurants and big hotels ~ little places with their smoky atmosphere, strong drinks and fantastic music and crammed to the max spilling out into the streets ~ and I just happened to stroll by one in SL too ~ so sit enjoy while I take you on my Jazz Adventure…

Jazz2

Shotgun Jazz Club

Stuck in between 2 of the bigger hotels on Bourbon Street you just might of missed this little jazz club especially walking by in the daytime ~ I peeked in as it was still early in the day just to get a glimpse ~

Jazz2aa

A Peek Inside

As I glanced around am noticing the place was empty ~ being as nosey as I am especially wanting to get a closer look at the clippings, wondering if the anyone would mind if I just took a few seconds to peek around ~ my feet made the decision for me and walked on in and kept walking up to the bandstand where I spied a pair of drumsticks ~

Jazz1c

Practicing 

Oh yes those drumsticks were just sitting there begging to be picked up, and I did just that ~ taking my seat on the stool I became in my mind “Gene Krupa” sitting in with all the other musicians ~ oh I could see myself back then just going crazy ~ I open my eyes and see another visitor who like me just walks up takes a place at the piano starts tickling those ivories ~ WOW we now have a jam session going on ~

Jazz2b

Playing the ivories 

Can you imagine the tip jar just filled with bills and change as we both just concentrate on syncing ourselves in pure jazz harmony ~ I quietly get up and go sit at one of the stools against the wall to listen to her play that piano ~ her melody is hauntingly beautiful and my mind travels back to an earlier era ~

Jazz2c

Listening 

As I listen my eyes take a look at all the clippings that have been carefully placed in frames to preserve a moment in history ~ looks like King Oliver was a regular here among other greats like Louis Armstrong, Dizzy Gillespie and who could forget Charlie Parker ~

Jazz2a

DayDreaming 

The pianist left and I just take a seat to enjoy the solitude and daydream about all the great music that must come from this tiny Jazz club ~ standing one last time on stage to take a view how it must appear

Jazz2aaa

View from the Stage

Ooops the owner of the Shotgun club just walked in and seems ummm a little perturbed that am standing on her stage ~ ok I am asked rather politely to leave immediately and if I like the doors open back up at 6pm sharp that I can come back then…what an adventure I had huh ~ well that is all it was an adventure in my head hehehe ~ but you can create your own if you have the PocketGacha hud on the 15th and try your luck for those that want more information about this click HERE ~ a brand new concept without having to travel anywhere and KraftWork is one of the Designer/Creators that is included this month ~ oh yes the piano plays, the drums drum and the chairs and stools have some great sits ~ careful of the ashtray as someone left a cigarette still burning in it ~ let me show you the Ad for this ~ ooh yes before I do things are copyable so you can fill your jazz club with as much or as little chairs, tables that you want ~ you have choices of fans that work or just be still ~

Jazz2

KraftWork for PocketGacha 

So that is today and you never know what tomorrow will bring ~ as I have started cleaning out my inventory and put together a great outfit as I hope you will stick around ~ till then please be kind to yourself and others ~ life is precious and short ~ hugzz ♥

Credits ~ go to my Sponsor KraftWork for giving me this opportunity to show off these amazing items ~ was such fun putting it all together and making my jazz adventure a reality at least in my mind LOL…Here is my taxi to their Main Store and to PocketGacha Main Headquarters to grab the Hud, remember these items will not be available till the 15th ~

Some Place Magical…

After a somber yesterday I wanted to put on my latest outfit “Adrena” that Hilly Haalan has just released and visit a magical place ~ after taking a tip from another blogger the place I let myself be whisked away to was Binemust~ its a very magical place that is intriguing and lots to explore and see ~

HH7

Binemust 

All those umbrellas and the red doors will take you to different adventures ~ something I will be  coming back again and again to try a different place ~ for now I felt like going under the sea and the magic of Second Life was I kept myself completely dry *giggling*

HH7a

Wearing Adrena by Hilly Haalan 

This was a city under a city and the experience was definitely a photographer’s dream ~ I could’ve spent hours just exploring and looking ~ but time was not on my side so while I am still under let me give you close ups of everything am wearing because YES everything I am wearing clothing wise is included in this great outfit…

HH7b

Necklace & Cropped Hoodie

The necklace will give you choices of metal either black or silver ~ and the Hoodie comes plain or embroidered ~ as the hoodie is opened just far enough to really show off that necklace ~

HH7bb

Handbag

I really have to say as most of you know am not a handbag person not in SL or in RL but this is cute with the rounded handle that just fits in your fingers ~ giving you that very smart and chic look ~

HH7c

Bum view of Shorts 

As shorts goes Hilly has also given you choices of front pockets or none leaving bare skin and I wanted to show you how cute the back of these shorts are so detailed reminding me of a pair of RL shorts I wore 80% of the time and even though I did not have the fancy boots I would pair them with clogs or ankle boots  and knee high socks ~ can you see the detailing on the cuffs and the waistband of the hoodie ~

HH7d

Over the Knee boots

Putting my best foot forward to show you that stiletto killer heel along with the peek a boo toes and the open lacing going right up the front ~ this entire outfit should cost more than I would naturally spend on my clothes but Hilly has it for a steal ~ you can either grab it on Marketplace or go into her Main Store to wander around and look at all the other bargains she offers ~ this outfit is now one of my go to’s that I have saved ~ till next time please be kind to yourself and others ~ peace out ♥

Credits ~ what can I say how overwhelmed at the kindness of so many but I truly want to give a shout out to someone who took time to IM me and ask if I got the answer to my question that I asked in a group where there was total silence ~ her name is Dŗ. Sɧąŗï ℭαℜţεŁŁ Bąẕï and yes I so appreciated her assistance ~ and Kay Weston from Image Essentials also gave me a great tip on inventory clean up ~ will go into that another day just want to make sure both of these great females got recognized…to my readers and followers you make me smile with your kind remarks, your likes and just following my blog ~ thank you bunches ♥

Remembering 09/11

This is a day not just Americans will never forget but the whole world was hit with this horrible tragedy ~ it is also the day of my Mom’s birthday ~ am in a way glad that she was not here to witness the acts of terrorism on American soil ~ So many tears were shed and still being shed when it comes to remembering ~ and SL is also a place that you can go and have a quiet moment to take time to remember ~

Remem1a

Paying my respects

Thanks to Daniel Voyager’s blog post giving the LM out I was able to spend time looking, remembering where I was that day ~ so surreal looking back as I spoke with one of my girlfriends and she was screaming into the phone “turn on the TV we are being attacked”, as I watched in horror the scene unfolding ~ the 2nd plane hitting, the other planes at the Pentagon, and in Pennsylvania ~ just listening to the news ~ was so heart wrenching to see my country being attacked and all those people losing their lives ~

Remem1

Thanks to the Responders

To all those brave men and women responders who also lost their lives, to those that gave everything to help others I sincerely salute you and thank you ~

We Will Never Forget 

As I wipe away my tears as those memories flood back in I ask please take a brief moment to also remember this day so we may never forget and never let it again happen…Peace to you ~ hugzz♥

P.S. ~ And to my Mom who was such a special woman with all her funny quirks, her stubborn streak that I inherited, and her ability to always stay strong I wish you a very Happy Birthday and may one day we will see each other again ~ Love & Miss You Lotz♥
