Going Steampunk…

Digging into my closet tossing out things that are over 2 years old by a method shown to me by Kay Weston and I love her dearly for this ~ will try to explain in my next post ~ for the moment I have always enjoyed Steampunk as it is unusual and very unique ~ there was a Sim that I cannot find anymore that was completely Steampunk ~ even had this really interesting story behind it ~ sadly like a lot of things time moves and changes happen ~ Sten was standing around and made the comment that he had the perfect vehicle as well ~ YAY my sweet hubby who is always so supportive pulls out this craft and takes us on this wild ride making me almost lose my breakfast as he decides to zip up to a height so fast I barely had time to blink ~

Sten and myself in Ananke “Nessie” Explorer

Sten tells me all the amazing features this has like warp speed which I begged him not to demonstrate again since I got the gist when we first got into this contraption ~ he explained it can go underwater without drowning us as well it has a search light ~ overall it really fit the steampunk theme I was going for so ummm yes my hubby I do thank you for this ~ Not sure where he got it but if you like one it is on Marketplace only as the creator no longer has inworld store ~ she really has created various Steampunk vehicles with so much detail ~

Back on Ground

Whew we made it back safely and hubby put it back on its docking ~ the exterior hatch opens up and you see I can sit on the edge giving you a great view ~ the outfit I pulled together was from couple of gacha’s like the Planner Hat from a past Guardian Gacha event, which can find some of these hats by 8f8 on Marketplace  ~ the goggles are over 2 years old and was created by Bauhaus Movement & they were a gift at the Shiny Shabby Anniversary celebration ~ The outfit “Amber” was from last Decembers Forest subscription box by Belle Epoque ~

My version of Steampunk

With that I added on socks from ! go ! from her inworld store and the shoes from [BREATHE] that also came from a past december Forest box…there are just somethings I cannot get rid of like shoes, socks, hair, and hats ~ ok maybe a lot of things I cannot get rid of huh *giggling* ~ just little of this and a little of that with your creative mind and you can pull together a very unique look ~ just takes experimenting and what you think looks good ~ this was fun putting together and possibly gives you ideas on how to create your look ~ that is why I love mixing and matching ~ please stick around to see what I come up with next ~ and yes one last thing if you do like my blog you can make sure you don’t miss anything please click on the follow ~ hugzz and remember to be first good to yourself then to others as life is too short not to…peace out♥

Credits ~ To all the amazing designers/creators that I used I so thank you and please keep creating…my amazing hubby Sten you know how I truly feel and thank you for putting up with me in my strive for that perfect shot and a lot of crankiness at times…love you!

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 ~

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 ~

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 ~

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 about gifts…

Everyone loves gifts especially if they are things you can use, or wear, or just plain cute…as I get older as everyone does my gifts that I receive have dwindled down to almost nil, which am not complaining because I love researching, buying and packaging gifts for others rather than receiving ~ but in Second Life oh yes I love gifts if they are good quality ~ Ones that I want to tell you about are the gifts from Cosmopolitan that celebrated their 5th Anniversary and the other is The Gacha Garden ~ good thing I went to The Gacha Garden broke because OMG I would of gone broke within minutes ~ they are so addicting ~ Here are just a sample of the gifts that I was fortunate to receive ~

Gift1

Gifts Galore 

Everything you see in the above pic was a gift from either Cosmopolitan or The Gacha Garden plus what I am wearing as I will show you close up~ from the Cosmopolitan Anniversary which just finished on August 12th with so many Designers setting out gifts like the cute puppy from TLC, Sugar Fixes everything Art by Sequel, Neon Heart by Chez Moi and the Vase from Lacrime was a group gift from The Gacha Garden along with the Electric rainbow from [Kres] as well as the Tin Lantern from Velvet Whip

Gift1a

Hair, Necklace, Bangle and Dress

What you see me wearing all came from The Gacha Garden ~ Analog Dog outdid themselves with their gift called eevee ~ my apologies for not turning around to show you there is not just 2 braids but 3 and yes AND this comes as a Fatpack so you have limitless color choices ~ am wow’d as you should be ~ [Glitzz] gift is the slim bangles and the necklace is from  .::Supernatural::. ~ with the dress that is from *PROMAGIC* ~ there is an entire outfit made up of the generosity of The Gacha Garden designers ~

Gift1b

Fanny’s Fireplace from Spargel & Shine Homes 

Absolutely love this fireplace as it comes just like this but it is mod that you can move either the candles or the flower vase if so choose…Both groups you will have to join and I highly suggest them both not only for the gifts, which is great but I love both of these events and always make a point to check on Seraphim to see what is being offered ~ it is my go to website that kudo’s to that group for doing such an awesome job on keeping up with all the events must be daunting at times ~ Again I do have to thank each designer that participates as there were so much more I could of shown you ~ The Gacha Garden is still in full swing and the group fee is ZERO ~ love the quality of the items from there and always make a point to check out what is going on ~ stick around as Dena is going to be showing her latest outfit ~ till next time remember please life is too short to hate ♥

The Forest ~ unique shopping experience

For those that have not heard of The Forest will give you a brief summary ~ this started back in August this year ~ huge buzz going around about a different type of shopping experience ~ pay one fee walk around and pick up the gifts ~ fee for having exclusive items from some very well known and up and coming designers is for me reasonable ~ and yes come Aug 21st I was right there in the midst with all the others lagged out trying to get all the goodies *laughing to myself* cuz they don’t just disappear over night as it goes till the 5th of the next month so plenty of time no need to stress out ~ but oh the goodies and kept telling myself and my blogging partner Dena we need to do a blog on this so here we are and let us get started…

Taking Selfies….

In RL am not one of those that goes around taking selfies of themselves ~ matter of fact I actually shy away from having my image taken usually I am behind the camera where its comfortable ~ I chuckle at those that on their FB-Instagram have millions of selfies with that duck lip pose that looks horrid…SL is different like most things from clothes to taking selfies ~ especially if you are a blogger you are taking thousands of selfies to get that one perfect shot showing off clothes or other items…Just like this outfit from Loovus at Designer Showcase ~

sept12aa

Txoko Top & Skirt by Loovus

A really well thought out color combination that sharkskin grey skirt that shows off those nice long legs matched up with a strapless corset top that is pleated flared out at the bottom…

sept12b

Another color combination

There are a total of 5 different color combinations that you can choose from or if you are one to grab a fatback you can get all 5 for a very reasonable price…now accessories I went with MOONDANCE jewelry set ~ that is simply just the right touch for this outfit …

sept12c

Chelle Jewelry Set by Moondance

I do love the individual touch of being able to change the entire set with one touch ~ touch the gems and a menu comes up giving you 8 metal and 20 gem choices ~ the set comes with Necklace, Earrings, Bracelet and Rings…looks perfect with this outfit ~ Both the outfit and jewelry set are available till the end of month, which is about 2 more weeks and taxi ride is right HERE ~ thank you’s go out to both designers Loovus and Moondance for giving me the opportunity to show off their items…and readers please stick around we have so much more to show you ~ Remember life is too short to hate ~ HUGZZ
