All About gifts
Everyone loves receiving/getting gifts especially in Second Life where so many groups offer monthly gifts to their members in return for a group fee…Bestie and I have spoken about this various times we are not the type that gets our panties all in a twist if the creator has not put out a group gift right at the first of the month ♥  Dena and myself do have our favorite groups that we have been loyal members for years and the biggest reason is fantastic customer service…The designers/creators respond to questions in a timely manner, they have competent staff that knows the items and usually can solve the issue and if not they make sure the store owner is aware of any problems so they can relay an answer or even a refund if necessary ~ designers/owners also let their staff know how to contact them as well even putting on their profile contact information plus designers/owners are really good at keeping their members informed as to sales, new items and even a very important thing to excellent customer service is to send out a notice to reflect if the owner will be on vacation, or an RL emergency came up that will take them away from SL for possibly months at a time ~ when store owners disappear for over months and months members do get concerned and wonder if the store closing, there is no mention of gifts at all but members are curious if they see nothing new has been added in over a 6 month time period what is going on…what is also disheartening is when in a group chat someone asks those questions and is berated for that ~ being called selfish, bullied to the point why ask such a question as yes I agree RL will always come first yet when absense is stretched into months on end with the owner never sending out a notice to let her customers and group members be aware that possibly it might be a year or so and to be patient and thank everyone for waiting♥  It is called firstly good manners and great customer service ~ speaking of group gifts what Dena and I are wearing is a group gift from Scandalize that comes in pairs and a hud that will let you change the belt color…thats it for now ~ please let me say how much I appreciate all those that read my blog and those that send me compliments and comments as they truly make me smile ~ thanks to bestie for jumping in and being a part of this blog ♥  hugzz

Out and about
Pausing a moment to wait for Dena to catch up as I had a thought about how good it was not to spend a fortune on clothes ~ top, vest and leggings were only 15L ~ wow pretty good bargain for an outfit and all you had to do was find the heart box that contains the outfit at Scandalize ~ there are hearts scattered all over the store and if you look on one wall it will show you what each one has in it ~ there are 20 different heart boxes to find with each of them having 2 items inside ♥ this hunt will last till February 14th, which still give you plenty of time but don’t procrastinate ~ Dena and I found this accidentally while waiting on our lucky letters to come up hehehe ~ ok finally hear Dena coming down the steps so gotta go but will be back later hugzzz ~ remember to take a moment to breathe♥♥

Bestie and Bride…

Bestie&Bride
When planning our wedding we truly wanted to keep it very simple, which we had made the decision no best man or maid of honor ~ still I wanted a pic of my bestie and me together as she has been there for me…plus I just had to show off our gowns again as how many times will I ever wear this wedding dress again ~ as we all know if you do go to weddings only the bride wears white SL or RL the protocol is you never want to outshine the bride…the dress Dena is wearing a Christmas gift from Scandalize as well as her necklace that did come as a gift from Lindens Shop & Hop event…

bestie
Here is a portrait in beauty as Dena shows off her bouquet and dress by herself ~ even though we had no bridal party she was my honorary maid of honor and just love the bouquet that matched mine…I love the rich color of her dress it was such a compliment to the wedding color we chose Christmas Red as we all know the protocol of never wearing white to someone’s wedding as you never want to outshine the bride on her special day…BTW I will admit that I am a tad behind on my blogging since this should have been posted right after the wedding and I got it mixed up with my Sax girl post so please have patience while I do catch up ~ RL has kept me busy for a chance I am having a social life LOL ~ take care & will be back very soon ~ hugzz ♥♥

friends…

Friends
Holidays to me mean friends and family ~ mostly friends in my situation as the family not so much hmmm maybe need to rephrase that family not at all…too long a story and let’s just say my family and I parted after my Mom passed away, which does happen when your parents truly hold the family together…November marked the anniversary  where I am living a year and can truly say I love it here living with my best girlfriend  that have known since high school and her husband ~ truly great to have a friend like her in my life as both have truly been a real blessing ~ her nagging me to finally make Dr. appointments to see what’s going on with me ~ not that I am looking forward to having such evasive surgery on my nose *2 hour procedure that when the Dr. explained it to me I seriously cringed ~ especially telling me a little slip of this instrument close to my eye and brain I am like OMG do not tell me that shit just have steady hands, no drinking the night before you and will start saying prayers that it goes fine…who tells their patients that gawd along with saying when asked about pain afterward “oh yes there will be horrible pain but we got good drugs for you” just another FYI that you could have kept to yourself…my girlfriend and her hubby said not to worry as I would be fine ~ for my SL friends I have also been blessed especially with my bestie Dena who lets me rant about RL stuff and cheers me up when am down ~ think without her at times my SL would look on the grey side and not full of color ~ this year am so grateful to another fantastic Christmas with my friends *RL & SL* ~ Dena and I truly want to tell each of you

MERRY CHRISTMAS ♥

Toshi Farms…

Toshi Farms
Couple days ago I grabbed my cute pet “Puggy” and we went exploring looking for a snow-filled sim and we found as you can see above a very nice one called “Toshi Farms” ~ there are all sorts of winter activities that you can take part in plus they have the coolest tree farm that I have seen ~For those owning Water Horses there are nice snow covered trails that you can come to ride♥  Snow is falling so make sure you dress warm with hats, mittens and especially boots as the snow is rather deep in places…Sadly the truck behind me is not mine along with that gorgeous tree in the back of it ~ they do have a gorgeous tree lot that you can pick out your own special tree and do not even have to bring your ax with you as they are already cut ~ enjoy walking around Toshi Farms ♥♥

SL Winter…

Winter1

Its beginning to look a lot like Winter Wonderland around SL and I absolutely love it ~ especially with none of the biting cold effects that come being outside…wearing my heavy warm sweater by Perch that was a prize from the WOH, my Ugg boots and yes my hat because where I went it was snowing a lot…  Footprints in the Snow is a gorgeous sim with a lot of photo ops for you to take ~ if you are not too noisy you can get up close to the reindeer like I did *grinz* Winter is one of my favorite RL seasons and the creativity is limitless in SL that I am finding bunches of sims that have changed to winter that I will be exploring ~ there will be coming up soon the start of Advent season with various stores participating that I will try my best to keep you informed ~ Peace on Earth hunt starts also and that one is probably the biggest hunt of the season ♥  December will be a very full month that my wish is you will stick around with me ~ until then remember to take time out for yourself and this is your SL make the most out of what you want ~ hugzz♥♥

Whiteout

Lets talk winter clothes in SL ~ there is some debate that designers should be putting out more clothes for winter as most of us looking out our windows it is winter time where people are wearing jackets, coats and sweaters indoors…for me personally and speaking with bestie Dena and couple other friends they do like to dress seasonally as well as decorate their homes and land also ~ now on the other side of the coin the consensus is that SL is always spring or summer so why wear winter clothing ~ there is no right or wrong answer for this as SL, which has a variety of sims that are winter with skiing, snowboarding and other winter activities that I absolutely love doing as am such a klutz on RL skis is a joke but in SL I can make it down the hill without falling on my azz LOL ♥ I would love to hear comments about this hot topic so please either comment on my blog or send me either an IM or NC inworld ~ my outfit is one from Ever an Angel close out sale that each one is only 50L and Dena is wearing a group gift from Scandalize that the group fee is FREE for the moment plus there is a huge wall of gifts for you to choose one or all ~ Dena and I along with Brutus to scout around for some winter sims just know that soon our most favorite of all winter sims “Christmas at Calas” will be coming soon as I know many of you have been there and love it as it always is one of the number 1 winter destinations ♥ I am so excited to see Ty and Truck’s creation every year as it just has that special magic ~ keep your eyes pealed to my blog for more details ~ thank you again to all my readers that have stayed with me through various transitions I am 99% sure that I have found my niche ♥♥
