Opening Act…

My heart is beating so fast I cannot believe that I was asked to be one of the opening acts for this HEADLINER…am bouncing up and down that you would think I was the star except am not ~ giggling that my name is Starr plus am wondering if I will pass out from stage fright or what…ME yes little unknown me was asked out of million others ~ woah now I gotta come up with an outfit that will just WOW the crowd ~ shaking I run to my closet and yank open the doors and there it is the PERFECT outfit that Hilly Haalan created its called the Rosaleen Lace up Dress in Glossy…YES it is going to be perfect ~ think I will even change my the color of hair ….oh gosh I gotta get ready the dress rehearsal is in whaaat 2 hours…wow ~

HH10

Wearing Rosaleen in Glossy doing Mic Testing

Was called on stage to let the lighting tech do his adjustments and the sound tech said do that testing 1,2,3 into the mic ~ welp at least we know this dress will wow them as one of the roadies just tripped over himself as I walked up on the stage…gotta mean something right…oh yeah this dress is a tad bit revealing especially if you forget in a moment of panic on running out of the dressing room without putting on panties so I do now have to watch myself how I present myself to the audience…ok ok am being waved off saying everything is good and I should get ready as curtain goes up in 40 minutes…ooooh no they are saying I need to change from the glossy red to the suede as the red is playing havoc ~ sighs but with the great Hud that Hilly has given that will not be a problem…giving a nervous giggle I run back to my dressing room umm the one without the “Star” on it…oh yes first you gotta see this dress close up

HH10a

Rosaleen close up

Check out how far up that slit goes ~ those laces are just position just right… those laces help hide ummm ~ the hud is amazing per Hilly’s excellent creativity giving you choices like if you want the front and back textures to match, the lace colors even the metal grommets you can change colors as well…ok ooops they are yelling Get Off the Stage to me ….be back in a jiffy…

HH10bb

Belting out my Number

As I get passionate with my singing I fall to my knees with no concerns of skinning them seems this is all so surreal ~ the crowd is applauding and whistling “Bravo” that tears begin to form in my eyes ~ the cameraman pulls in for a last closeup shot…

HH10b

My closeup shot wearing Rosaleen in Suede

My look is uber perfection, from my makeup to changing my wig color I just feel like not the opening act but a true singing star…I hear this buzzing in my ears possibly all the chanting xcept it is getting louder and louder and I WAKE UP….Oh no it was just a dream ~ as I roll over punching my pillow and shutting off my alarm…course it was as everyone knows I cannot sing one note in tune ~ dogs howl, people cringe but wow what an amazing dream it was…at least I looked amazing wearing Hilly’s latest release ~ oh well time to get up and start my day…laterzzz ♥

Giving Thanks….

Hey am back and bet you didn’t think I would be back this fast well me either but you know when they say strike while the iron is hot I got inspired by speaking with a creator from the S.O.S. Festival ~ very nice man Jag Jetcity that has several items at the Home & Garden section ~ it is always nice when you get compliments from a vendor when you blog their items and even nicer when another creator gives a compliment to you on a post that didn’t even feature them ~ so we got to speaking and curious me asked what items he had ~ and one thing led to another with me unpacking the 3 items am like “OH what great items” then again me being me asked was there any special meaning to this particular one …ooops why am I rambling when I can just show you which one ~ sheesh my baad…

sep9b

Survivor Ladder  by Magnum Opus 

Reading the words One Step At A Time really just hit me and when he told me the back story about creating this for Relay for Life but also wanted to include it in this festival as well I was struck thinking each of us can use those words in our lives ~ those words just inspired me well all his items did as I will show you the rest…

sep9a

Fall Decor ~ 

This is really nice for decorating your land for Fall ~ love the pumpkins and those leaves that seemingly look like they have just fallen down ~ so well done from the textures to the great colors of the pumpkins….

sep9c

We all Need this 

To give thanks to whatever reason like being alive or having friends or well you get my gist ~ these wooden blocks are very inspiring to me ~ along with this entire Festival and what all the monies will go towards helping out Doctors without Borders ~ I truly give thanks to each of them that dedicate their lives to going where so many refuse to go because of their political or religious beliefs but these Doctors put their own lives at risk to give help to others in need and that I think these words are so appropriate to give thanks that there are people in this world like Drs without Borders ~ yes am so passionate about this and am glad to see every designer/creator has put so much effort into this ~ again huge thanks to Jag Jetcity from Magnum Opus for letting me show off his creative items ~ now you can find these items and others in the Home & Garden Sim ~ so please click HERE to be whisked away ~  make sure you take time to check out his items please then wander around all the other sims as well…HUGZZ & remember life is too short to hate…

Paris again….

Ok am in love with this city ~ from the chic little cafes scattered around to the sidewalks I just love the atmosphere because it is a creators dream one that you can just sit and soak it all in ~ so I just needed to stop, take a brief break ~ take out my book ~ and just breathe…you know how that is right? ~ books to me are my form of relaxing as I at times can just fully immerse myself in the characters and the storyline especially if the author pulls you in letting you visualize just what is going on around you ~ chilling at times when am reading a murder mystery or tearful when I find that heartbreaking story line gets emotional…either way am a true lover of books BUT then someone nudges me and goes HEY you…

sept8a

Wearing Allusions Jeans & Vest and JfL Real Hats

As I glance up from enjoying my book the man comes in closer to ask me if I am Parisian Model…chuckling and shaking my head am like ummm nope I just love this gorgeous soft pale Grey French Beret that JohnFrancis Laville owner/creator of JfL Real Hats was graciously letting me wear to show off for his contribution to the Spoonful of Sugar Festival…the man looked a little confused ‘SPOONFUL… whats that ~ and smiling I proceed to tell him the festival is opening today and proceeds from the sale of items will go towards helping Doctors without Borders ~ oooh the man replies that is a great organization those Doctors go to so many places in the world no matter what at times putting themselves in danger…YES I nodded you do know them as I smile back…then he goes well stand up let me take a pic of you because he also says I know you must be some famous model right…

sept8b

My Model Pose *Winks*

Giggling I jump up giving him one of my umm “model” poses and while I pose and wait for him to fiddle with his camera I proceed to tell him this outfit is from Allusions ~ the long vest is made out of crushed velvet ~ matter of fact that is what it is called “LongVest:Crushed Velvet” color being Canyon ~ still holding my pose I tell him the jeans are also being sold “Straight LegJeans ~ Distressed ~ Lace”  also from Allusions and both are 100% mesh ~ maybe this would look good on your girlfriend or wife I tell him because remember all proceeds will go directly to their organizations ~ the man peers at my face and goes what is that lipstick you are wearing…

sept8d

Sugarlicious Snap Lipstick by Dulce Secrets 

Oooh you like it do ya I ask and the man replies smiles well its not my color but on you looks very sexy in a subtle way as I say thank you and remind him that Dulce Secrets will also be there with all her lipsticks and shadows ~ as he puts away his camera finally I just remind him about the Festival as well telling him there are so many creators/designers that they had to create 4 separate sims ~ two of them are for Fashion, one for Home & Garden, and another for Breedables plus there is a silent auction along with those evil Gacha machines ~ the man does mumble something about being a true die-hard gacha fan and shyly asks how does he get there….As him and I keep conversing I take a moment to write down on a slip of paper all the Landmarks for him ~ might as well show you all as well right?

Main Landing Point for Spoonful, Fashion Sim 1, Fashion Sim 2, Home & Garden, Breedables ~ just click on each to be taken to the Festival ~ before he left he wanted also to know where he could find out more about this event so I gave him the LINK that he could read all about it from the history of how it all came together and even there is a place that tells you about the events that will be held during the time Spoonful opens till it closes with some great LIVE performances on Saturday September 10th SAMM QENDRA will be singing ~ the man yelled as he is a huge fan of hers and was excited about going to see her ~ before he left he thanked me for telling him all about the festival and vowed that he would at least go and look around and whispered something about really wanting to see those gacha machines …giggling I thanked him and waved him off …….whew as I took my seat back down I did smile to myself about his asking me if I was a model…yeah right…anyway before I go must thank Sabryne Hotaling owner/creator of Allusions, JohnFrancis Laville owner/creator of JfL Real Hats and AnneAlyce Maertens of Dulce Secrets for providing me with all these great items ~ and to my readers & followers thank you for taking time out to read my blog along with the all the creators and designers for your contributions and hard work as well…..HUGZZ to each of you ~ remember life is too short to hate…till next time cya….
