Welcome to the…

It is a new year and for me that gives another chance to accomplish things ~ not sure I like using the word resolution as dictionary definition is “a firm decision to do or not do something” giving this absolute that is so not me ~ for me you need to be able to bend and that is not meaning making excuses or rationalizing why you ate that donut instead of keeping with your eating plan…life is just that things happen and there is plenty of stress that ok you had a donut possibly extra 10 minutes walk adding on will give you that little push needed ~ take the moment to step out and just welcome the new year and why not give yourself a really cute outfit like the one I slipped on as am walking out…

Wearing Eveline by GIULIA DESIGN

This outfit is 100% mesh and includes the top, skirt and boots as I will comment it is an exclusive ONLY to Designer Showcase ~ yes yes there is a close up so you can see the fabulous details

DSJ6b

Eveline closeup 

It still might be chilly where you live but this outfit will heat you up when you are out clubbing ~ from the knit texture, crisscrossing giving a nice peek for the gurls ~ if you look at the skirt and the bottom hem gives it a nice flirty look to it ~ remember that this is not one piece so you will be able to mix/match like putting a cropped long sleeve top ~ possibly pairing it also with tights and there you have a gorgeous winter look ~ this outfit also has gorgeous boots too ~ look below

DSJ6c

Gorgeous boots included 

This will really fit your legs like a nice pair of expensive gloves ~ and a great heel that helps walking in the snow and ice ~ aaaaaand looks fabulous too ~ all in all this is a win win outfit that will be carefully placed in my closet for future wear ~ oh yes I mentioned that this is only available at Designer Showcase till the end of the month and hey why not grab a ride on my souped up TAXI to take you there so you can wander around and enjoy Aisha’s newest build ~ ok I need to run back upstairs and grab my coat am freezing ~ till next time be kind to yourself and others ♥♥

Am I bored…

A lot of people ask that question when you tell them how long you have been in SL ~ since 2008 I have been enjoying life in SL ~ and now even more since meeting my partner Sten 3 years ago along with my bestie Dena 2 years ago as well as my passion for blogging ~ yes blogging ~ I absolutely love getting an item, a outfit, piece of furniture, hair, or even a brand new prop like the one from Image Essentials ~ yes pose/prop makers really help bloggers ~ could be a background or a prop with various poses especially if you can use the prop over and over giving it possibly different looks ~ did I mention Image Essentials gave me the honor again to blog for them ~ Kay does a fabulous job creating poses and props especially this one ~ look below so I can show you a variety of different ways to use it

Waiting1c

Waiting Prop w/Poses by Image Essentials

Am loving this prop that has 5 poses along with the mirrors ~ for those that are a little confused “mirrors” mean there will be right/left poses ~ let me give you a peek at couple of the different ones…

Waiting1a

Waiting ~

This truly defines that title in “waiting” arms up on the railing and again you can either use the right or left side pose ~ here is another one…

Waiting1b

Another pose from this Prop 

Oh yes kind of took a little photographers liberty to punch this image up ~ love the shadows from the tree while taking it in ultra mode ~ can you see how great the steps look with that great concrete texture that Kay used ~ and who is to say that you cannot just stand up to show off the uber sexy outfit Haley by Yeliz like the one below

Waiting1d

Using Prop as a backdrop to show off Yeliz outfit

Truly this is a great prop that am sure you can have fun with in various ways ~ grab my jazzed up TAXI to Image Essentials as it just came back into the store from the 4Mesh event ~ till next time please stick around as you never know what I might talk about, let you see or … hugzz and please be good to yourself ♥

Credits to Kay Weston owner/creator of Image Essentials for this great new prop as well as giving me another opportunity to blog for I.E. ~and for the really nice gift from Hucci my shoes  thank you ♥ This was shot at my home using the Prop w/poses along with using Sultry Pose also by Image Essentials

Getting ready…

Everyone wants to look their best for date night or just spending time with that special someone and both Dena & I looked in our closets not really seeing anything that just clicked for us ~ As bloggers for Designer Showcase we get gifted with all the previews for the month, which is a true honor that we absolutely love ~ Using Seraphim we can see the entire room and both of us came to the conclusion to wear La Perla ~ I chose Debora just for my sexy hubby, which left Dena wearing that uber sexy Dayane ensemble…

GettingR

Myself & Dena wearing La Perla 

Dena’s ensemble Dayane  does include shoes as well and is 100% Mesh fitting all types of bodies and whew looks uber sexy ~ yes yes will be giving a closer look just patience…For me my outfit comes with an applier Hud so no fear of having it not fit ~ always if you are concerned with fit try the demo before you buy…Now onto closeups

GettingR1b

Wearing Debora by La Perla

Oh did I mention mine first does come with a Hud that gives you 10 different colors and if those that know me should’ve guessed I would of chosen purple and second it is applier compatible ~ now just need to see what the hubby thinks of this sexy Debora ~

GettingR1a

Wearing Dayane also by La Perla

Both outfits are not for the faint of heart especially the one that Dena has on as the slit that goes up her thigh and the well placed designs really makes this outfit not only sexy as well as dare to bare…Included is an amazing Hud with abundance of choices not only for the dress but the shoes that the creator has generously included too…and you know what happens next is my snazzy TAXI is here for you to get you to Designer Showcase so you can try on the demo’s see which one you like to purchase then wander around, don’t forget to take a slice of cake and a glass of champagne to celebrate Designer Showcase’s 7 year anniversary ~ welp Dena and I still have lotz more to put on, take pics to share with each of you ~ oh yes stick around as I have a hunt item that you might wanna go try and find ~ hugzz from Dena along with myself ~ cya ♥ ♥

Times up…

As I stand on the carpet getting ready to take my seat for the Golden Globes am more aware of this growing movement towards Women Empowerment ~ making everyone to start a conversations against sexual harassment and sexual misconduct and as Oprah spoke to say the TIMES UP  ~ how powerful that is especially if you have ever been subjected at your job with that good ole boy network – sadly I learned the hard way that speaking up years ago has consequences ending in being let go of a job with a flimsy excuse but knowing I was not going to sit on my boss’s lap just to get my check ~ instead called a cop friend of mine that showed up demanding that I receive my check ~ consequently I was let go the very next day…was advised that I did not need to work for someone like that ~ now I stand dressed in black in solidarity of this movement…

Sonriisa  by Shoenique Designs

This gown is stunning, fits like a glove and very form fitting plus very sexy ~ you can choose the basic colors or go all out with the the Theresa Gold ~ the creator has a demo if you are unsure of the fit ~ I really wanted to go with a subtle look with my accessories  and paired it with Moondance Boutique’s necklace “Annette” because of the choices of gems ~ you also can turn around and really sparkle with a brightness switch…

Simply gorgeous…

As another blogger made the comment that it is nice to be called “gorgeous” and there are times that just putting on a gown or a dress or even lingerie that as you look into that mirror you tell yourself “simply gorgeous” ~ a lot of times I love to just glam myself out in here with taking time to find just the right hair that will compliment what am wearing and even put on the works with eyeshadow and lipstick ~ what is nice that most of us have a great variety of hair and like a good fairy godmother you can change in an instant ~ goes the same with lipsticks and makeup and truly love having my Catwa Head with their easy to use hud just makes it easy peasy at least once I got the hang of it *giggling* cuz it did take time and thanks to bestie for helping me along with the Catwa group when I would freak out thinking ut oh what did I do wrong again ~ I give them huge kudo’s for how knowledgeable they are as well as helpful always someone in the group or mods can help you with your issues ~ Today just was the day that I felt like truly glamming it up and with the help of a gorgeous gown “Addison” by JUMO I absolutely feel gorgeous ~

DSJ3a

Wearing Addison gown by Jumo

DSJ3c

Big Bold Earrings

You will have to excuse me for forgetting to take off my other earrings but even that does not deter the look that it gives you ~ big but not huge that they are overpowering yet they do make a statement ~ this gown is truly a timeless classic and with all those choices it is one that I will be keeping in my inventory ~ I did mention eye shadow that at times at not one to wear it in SL or RL unless it is for something special ~ guess I need to turn my face so you can see exactly the shadow that Dulce Secrets is offering this month at Designer Showcase…

DSJ2

Wearing Khaos by Tori’s Stylez

Yes do you ever feel that you are facing a speeding train…life can be like that at times where you just have to put yourself basically in a time out ~ not as punishment but as momentarily calming yourself down…We all should take time outs from all the running around we do, day in an day out stress among those of us in SL that have a lot of commitments or even the overwhelming never ending inventory ~ shuddering hard on that last one ~ no one is immune to this feeling and you must take care of yourself otherwise stress related illnesses will be on your horizon ~ as I know flare-ups from shingles for me do occur so I take a well needed time out grab my Paperwhite and just relax for at least 30 minutes reading ~ not for you then a nap or just listening to music will help ~ Now really am not truly facing that speeding train *giggling* but btw do I look hawt as I make my way across the train tracks ~ seriously I do suggest you don’t really stand on train tracks unless you know and look both ways for no trains coming – good thing for me this was standing still…whew being squished is not something I would relish happening as for that simply uber dress from Tori’s Stylez called Khaos the creator has gone full on in creating this ~ each dress will come with a hud that you will be able to change the styles all you have to choose is which one there is the style you see above called “Lace” and look below for Antique ~ other choices will be Midnight, Pink, Silver, Acid and Gold ~ all sexy and fit various bodies ~

DSJ2b

Antique 

Each dress sparkles and shines making heads turn, and you a star of your own when wearing this sexy dress ~ might be winter where I am but this dress as me feeling HOT! As I paired it with some gorgeous heels by DE Boutique “Fairy Heels” that truly rock…

Fairy Heels by DE Boutique
