Arabella by Hilly Haalan 

I wandered back to a place that I just am discovering “The Outer Garden” that really makes this ensemble really stand out ~ you must remember to head over there and spend some time ~ the outfit Arabella is 2 pieces that will become a fave or mine ~ there are 2 separate huds for top and bottom with a LOT of different choices ~ the top you can show or hide the pearls along with changing the colors of them as well as the top texture too ~ with the bottom hud you have a total of 30 texture colors just for the skirt and then 30 choices for the zipper in the back…Hilly really outdid herself on this creation ~ fantastic ~ and what better way to feel even prettier is accessorizing it with the Bridal Set from Chop Zuey ~

Sub Umbra Floreo ~ Special Bridal Edition

Am in awe of the talent from Belle in creating this special edition for Designer Showcase ~ pearls and diamonds just is a stunning combination ~ you can see am wearing the choker, the earrings ~ and also the headband that I moved around a little just to show it off with this hair ~

Looking pretty with Chop Zuey

You can see the above pic shows off the head band that I moved up showcasing it more ~ and there is more included with this jewelry set along with a special price just for the Designer Showcase ~ the headband will be sold separately but look at what this special Edition Bridal set includes

What the World Needs Now…

DS1a

Outfit by American Bazaar 

“What the world needs now is love sweet love,
Its the only thing that there’s just to little of,
What the world needs now is love sweet love,
No, not just for some but for everyone”

Jackie DeShannon sang those words back in the 60’s but the lyrics still resonate for today’s world ~ we all could use some love instead of hatred ~ but let me hop down so I can show you this uber sexy outfit from American Bazaar that is ONLY at Designer Showcase for this month ~ both are being sold separates so you can mix/match…

DS1c

Jeans that are booty hugging 

I love the wide pant legs that yes I love the lace inserts that really sets the jeans apart ~ they will be my fave as you can see they hug your booty very nicely…

DS1ab

FrouFrou Top by American Bazaar 

The top is just WOW I love it but it really is not for the faint or one that are a tad umm conservative and I love it ~ both will be keepers in my inventory as summer is not that far away and you can show off those curves when you are out dancing and not break a sweat *wink* ~ of course I accessorized it with Moondance’s Jewelry set called “Krissy” another fave piece that you will see me wearing it with the other outfits that I have the honor of showing you from Designer Showcase ~ now those in the know KNOW Designer Showcase opens up on the 5th but am early so you can start making up your shopping list ~ and if you are looking for an interesting sim check out Catalina Island as it has some great photo ops plus lot of little places to just sit, chat and explore ~ Remember Designer Showcase opens up on the 5th and these items the top, jeans are both sold separate from American Bazaar and the Jewelry set from Moondance Boutique also comes with a hud ~let me say huge thank you to Missy *missqwerty pevensey* owner/creator of American Bazaar and to Kathrin Dassin owner/creator of Moondance Boutique for giving me the honor of showing off their items ~ and always to Aisha Convair who has kept me on as a blogger ~ thank you all !!! till next time be good to yourself ~ Peace out ♥

What Can I say….

Ummm well not sure what can I say about this post ~ shuffling my toes around and blushing ~ hello everyone am back to show you and especially my hubby and bestie ~ gosh not sure how to even explain I just do not know how this happened am like this morning woke up fine was doing some landscaping around our property and it was like BAM!!!!  Gawd what can I say to my sexy hubby and my bff Dena its like there is no explanation but but …… shrugs so guess with that being said will show you the pic and maybe that will explain it all …..right?

AprilFool1

OMG how did this happen…

As I stand here holding this baby that am clueless about ~ Seriously my loving husband I know what it looks like but but please believe me its not at all what it seems ~ you must believe me ~ Dena am just so confused like that sign beside me ~ geeez ~ but this outfit at least I know about it ~ a cute romper by Hilly Haalan that comes with a great 30 texture hud to satisfy your thirst for change ~ this one even comes with a cute sailor hat and scarf…

AprilFool2

Baby Mine? 

From the above pic you can see the cuteness of the scarf and also a baby that I still am clueless how that happened and yes I do know how babies are born but you know SL sometimes stranger things do take place guess this is one of them…now I did not check to see if this is still available in her inworld store but here is the LINK for the Marketplace one ~ great price ~ now the shoes and socks are not included as they were from the Fifty Linden Friday ~ same with the hair ~ another group that I love or if you are group full then go to my favorite blog  Seraphim on Fridays and see whats available ~ I could not live without Seraphim they are absolutely in the know about so many events, fairs and also show you a gallery of what is being offered at each ~ you must check them out ….ok now shuffling my feet I must tell you about THE BABY so hubby, bestie and my readers and followers are you ready to hear what I gotta say ~

APRIL FOOLS!!!!!

Yes look at the calendar everyone its April 1st and the baby I knew would come in handy one day to freak out hubby and everyone ~ sorry but there are no SL babies in my future ~ that was a dealbreaker to hubby NO BABIES…and winning from Black Bantam at The Arcade this was my first pull ~ giggling ~ as I place the baby backed in her box until who knows….so now you know DID I FOOL you *grinning….till next time remember be xtra careful today so you don’t get pranked….trying to think of one to tell my RL roomie but she has enough issues I wouldn’t want her to freak out hmmmm well maybe a little LOL so stick around for some more goodies ~ Dena and I have a great place for you to go to ~ be good to yourself ~ PEACE OUT ♥

In My Closet

Have not spent a lot of time in my closet lately and this was such a cute outfit that I put together just had to show it off to you ~ very fun and flirty and using little this and that ~ dontcha love when something just comes together ~ that is what I love about SL that really there are no rules when it comes to Fashion that you have to follow…especially because the weather can always be gorgeous with no bad hair days, your makeup looks flawless and stores never clothes OMG and most everything you put on just fits and looks fabulous unlike RL that you might be like me and struggle with the additional 10 pounds and do whatever to cover it up ~ SL I can show off my flat tummy, perky boobs and my gorgeous lips…for our Closet Series we will make sure the outfit that we put together will have either the Marketplace link to the exact item or I will travel to the Inworld store to see if its available for you ~ that is a big thing when reading blogs that I see an item and its is not available after much searching…if its not I will be diligent in saying so ~ let me show you the back of this first * giggling * just cuz I love the pockets…

Closet1aa

Back view of this cute flirty mini

Check out those pockets ~ both Alia top and Keisha skirt are by Hilly Haalan and she always provides a great hud that for me gives you lotz of bang for your Lindens ~ both items are no exceptions and I love the choices ~ The Keisha Skirt comes with 20 different textures and the top 40 ~ Both are on Marketplace and priced very reasonably ~please check credits for the links …

Pumps with Socks by Hilly

Guess I should of just said the entire outfit was by Hilly LOL because so are these gorgeous pumps with socks ~ and yes also found on Marketplace with another great hud of 30 sock textures along with 30 different shoe colors…with the overall look the shoes and over the knee socks just added that special touch…

Closet1a

Outfit by Hilly ~ all separates

Can you see the pigeon is giving his approval to this fun and flirty look ~plus you can see how cute, flirty and sexy the Alia top is ~ really compliments the mini and since they are separates you can mix/match all items ~  I wanted to find that perfect necklace so I rooted and found a group gift from Poison to wear that just finished this outfit perfectly…

Closet1c

Group Gift by Poison

From the pic above you can see how this necklace just adds that final touch along with seeing the gems from the Alia top that I mentioned before the Hud for this will give you choices as well……Really have to say that this location where I shot all the pics at has so many great photo ops or if you are just wanting to wander around looking at the shops or just the setting it is a super great place ~ the veggies are superb and truly fresh ~ so take a moment and enjoy the outdoor cafe by yourself or with someone special…Till next time be good to yourself ~ Peace out

Into the Sun…

Its middle March and looking out my window am seeing more snow ~ where my RL exists we have had 13 inches of snow and add 2 more inches from last nite~ I love snow during the winter and only if I do not have to shovel as I rather now pay someone with a snowblower to clean off driveway and sidewalk ~ yes its not being lazy it is knowing that my body is growing older and need to pamper it…my story sooo ~ on next thing is I am a profile reader and love looking at the profile pics ~ for me maybe its my upbringing or just being old school but I see profile that are just nasty with giving the ultimate finger or blazed across “F*ck You* ~ shaking my head and feeling sad but hey it is SL and I should not judge but I do ~ shame on me you are probably saying but I admit it ~ from some of the nicknames that are so blatant in sexuality to what is on their main profile am not stunned but saddened that they feel so less of themselves…and that is that on that subject so now onto this stunning dress that is part of Designer Showcase this month ~ the designer is not new just a change of name and I do have to thank my sweet sexy hubby for helping me out on where to show off this very classy dress ~ putting on my uber model look with hair from Shi this dress is one to impress ~

Mar18b

Rancho Mirage by Julz

First I noticed the high ruffled collar that I used to see on a lot of high fashion years ago ~ even thinking that Audrey Hepburn posed in a dress with one ~ the ruffle was carried down and across and I absolutely love the bow ~ if that was not enough to impress me the flower on the lapel did it ~ the fit for my Maitreya body was pure perfection and over all this just screams to me uber elegant ~ matching it with another Designer Showcase designer Moondance that has the options to change textures to just set off this outfit…Julz has given you 5 different color options to choose from and of course I chose purple to show you…let me give you a closer look

Into the Sun 

As I face the sun you can see the gorgeous ruffle and the flower on the lapel along with how Moondance jewelry gives it that added touch…this was shot on location of this fantastic Tea House that it was late but going back later to explore ~ landmark will be in the credits ~ and speaking of places here is your TAXI to get you to Designer Showcase so you can see the outfit and the jewelry up close…it is always so nice and very appreciated when I hear someone enjoys my blog ~ thank you to each of you for reading ~ and the comments and feedback is always welcomed ~ to my hubby big big kisses for the suggestion…please stick around as I will be showing off some stuff from different subscriptions ~ be good to yourselves ~ Peace Out ♥

Simply Elegant…

I love SL for all the opportunities it gives you ~ dressing up in a long elegant gown is something I did not do a lot in RL ~ just was not there but SL gives me that feeling of wearing my hair up, accessorizing with gorgeous jewelry and looking like a high fashion model ~ this month at Designer Showcase D.E. Boutique has 2 items as I showed you in an earlier post the casual look now I get to show you the elegant look with their gown “Kate”..

Blog9c

“Kate” by D.E. Boutique

This gown is elegantly classic ~ this gown will be simply timeless ~ all you need is to choose which color as you will have 10 options ~ as I accessorized this with the jewelry set from Moondance ~ and of course I had to wear my favorite up do by D!va to give the finished look ~ gorgeous right…

Blog9d

Bellisima Jewelry Set

Bellisima Jewelry includes 20 pearl/10 gem/9 metal options via HUD and will include necklace, 2 pairs of earrings, 2 bracelets, and 2 rings ~ the added pairs as you will see are different in size ~ I absolutely love being able to change everything on the pieces from the metals, the gems, and the pearl colors ~ making this a keeper in my inventory forever…

Blog9dd

Back View of Dress & Hair

I am showing the back of the dress because one of the choices is 2 tone ~ white/black is this combination ~ plus D!va always ramps up the hair with little bows & ribbons that you can also change to match your gown or whatever…she is my favorite for formal looks and the little wisps that you see are hers and not me adding anything…

Its now starting on the downside of the month just a little reminder that all the outfits and clothes have shown you will be at Designer Showcase till the end of March ~ here is that TAXI so you can grab up these goodies ~ for those that worry about fit make sure you try on the demo…and to all my readers & followers I so appreciate the time you do take to read, comment and follow my blog ~ I do have some goodies from various prepaid boxes that I will be showing you a little on my next blog…till then be good to yourself ~ Peace out ♥

Taking a trip….

Sometimes you just need that short mental vacation for your mind as I wave hello to everyone ~ again I must say how thankful for my bestie Dena who so many times just being there and giving me confidence when my brain and ideas falter ~ you have a great outfit, places to show it off but for me it is not just about taking a pic ~ at least that is not what my blog is about ~ yes am very chatty and try to introduce some helpful tips at times or a little humor or even yes a rant or two ~ but I am not one just to show you me dressed up, give credits and that is it ~ what I do want my readers to know is if I am wearing something and blog about it ~ for me I endorse it, either like it or absolutely love it ~ but if I try it on and it is just not me no matter what color you will not see me wearing it ~ am picky for a reason I want you my readers to believe and trust in me ~ that I have come to realize when looking and reader other blogs in SL ~ I trust their advice ~ one from experience they have as well as knowing what they are talking about and showing me…for me I look at different blogs and the ones that I love show me, teach me and advise me on various items ~ am not going to mention names to be fair but there are ones that it is just images and that is fine also but I like someone to give me advice as to which mesh head is good and the reasons behind it or if I show you this outfit am wearing and tell you nothing else you may or may not like it ~ but if I say these pants fit my Maitreya perfectly aren’t you more inclined to give them a try…ok nuff yapping from me ~ speaking of clothes these are from Designer Showcase and are out of the I.M. Collection ~ Brenna Top & Jeans ~ as you will see below ~

Blog8b

Brenna Top & Brenna Jeans by I.M. Collection

The top and jeans are sold separately but such reasonable price for both pieces that I would not hesitate to pick up couple different color tops ~ colors are rich in texture and all you have to do is decide which one is for you ~ this is not a simple long sleeve cropped top but the  back really heats the look up for you …

Blog8a

Back view

Really nice criss cross that expands on the way down ~ the jeans have a great cuff and belt look ~ both are 100% mesh and as you can see give my bum a nice look ~ cannot forget to mention the shoes that are also being featured at D.S. this month ~ they are from Ghee that I mentioned in an earlier post ~ just love when the designer creates a hud to give us more bang for our Lindens…this is such a great casual look and excuse me just dropping my suitcases on the floor since I just got home and wanted to show you this ~ its mid month and Designer Showcase does run to the end of the month ~ yes I know you need my ever reliable TAXI to take you to look, try on demo’s and hey remember to wander outside and look at some of the latest build….lotz more to show you from Designer Showcase plus some other goodies ~ till next time PEACE out….♥
