Today Dena and I finally got a chance to meet and went to check out the Imaginarium that just opened ~ part of the GimmeGacha group we knew there would be a lot of interesting and free pressies ~ today was no different as I am very selective on which ones I do pull for ~ when I saw this Mannequin Lamp by [Since 1975] I knew what I was going to spend my 75L on ~ was so excited to grab #3 in leather ~ in taking this pic Dena made the suggestion we dress all in white ~ the pic turned out just how I was looking for and knew to really make this pop I would take a bit of leeway in editing bumping up so you could see the mannequin lamp in all its splendor ~ was really worth the trip over as we enjoyed looking at all the unique and different gacha’s ~ absolutely love the creators imagination ~ now where to put it in the house hehehe ~ think hubby will notice or not *giggling* ~ to grab all the free pressies you do have to join the GimmeGacha group but its free and most of the gifts show off the creators talents ♥

beach day…

Relaxing...

Yesterday Dena and I finally got together and decided to escape to the beach to enjoy the last couple of weeks of summer ~ exploring a place called Baja Cove part of the Baja Norte sims was fun with the landscaping and sounds of the surf made the entire outing enjoyable…walking around wore us out so we pulled out the umbrella and picnic stuff and found a nice quiet place by the water to rest, relax and just enjoy the day…yes had to bring my book to finish up reading the latest James PattersonTexas Ranger” ~ am a huge fan of his ~ while I read Dena enjoys an ice cold glass of white wine that we brought…as we sit and enjoy listening to the ocean waves am going to also give you a closer look at one of 7 Deadly s[K]ins called Brooklyn

beachbabe

This is the freckled version of Brooklyn in Pineapple and wearing it browless as I do love my Lurid brows ~ younger I used to get freckles and freckles during the summer and got teased by the “mean girls” ~ for me it was no biggie as I was such a beach person I didn’t mind the freckles or the nose peeling even though I wore sunscreen and zinc oxide on nose and lips ~ was my badge to show everyone where I spent my summers in the outdoors enjoying the surf and sand ~ Izara Zuta creator/owner of 7 Deadly s[K]ins gives just enough of a smattering of freckles to look just perfect ♥  This gorgeous skin has 3 versions regular, blushing and freckled so please try a demo on to see how they will look on you ~ you can find Brooklyn at the Blush event till the 24th of September ~ rides will be below ~ Enjoy ♥♥

Fortune told…

My fortune...

Ever wondered what your fortune would be from a fortune teller? Remember the movie Big with Tom Hanks ~ I was a tad hesitant yet curiosity got me and this is what I was told “Fortune Teller: Starr Ghost, this is your fortune: A stranger, is a friend you have not spoken to yet.”  Hey pretty good fortune dontcha think ♥ ~ oh you know what else I discovered another useless bit of trivia today that your forearm and your foot are the same sizes ~ Yes, the feet of most humans are actually the same length as one of their arms from wrist to elbow ~ now I am wondering how many of you just put your foot up to check it out hmmm…while you are doing that am gonna say my dress came from *B.D.R.* and the good news is its the group gift, which means FREE ~ Summer Breeze has a very nice hud with 10 prints along with 5 solids ~ the group is free to join with a lot of monthly gifts its a very win/win for you ♥

Latest Look

The skin am wearing is also new from 7 Deadly s[K]ins called Sparrow and wanted to show you the freckled version with the brows this time ~ for me I love how the freckles are not overpowering the skin just sprinkled lightly across the nose and cheeks ~ the Oak tone gives a very nice tanned look as well ~ Sparrow is at the anyBODY event till the end of the month ~ please make sure you try on a demo so you can see what it looks like on you ~ really love this skin and maybe you will too ~ btw if you like my blog either follow or you can get it in your email ~ till next time ♥♥

strange place…

Strange place

Looking through some of the places that looked interesting I put on my newest outfit Pamela from La Perla and went exploring ~ ending up on a rather strange sim called Foul Whisperings, Strange Matters that is all about a symbolic treatment of the key themes of Shakespeare’s play, Macbeth.  I read that years ago in high school and really did not retain a lot about this play except the line “”Double, double toil and trouble; Fire burn, and cauldron bubble.” (Act IV, Scene I)”  I will come back as for a little sim there is lotz of things to do and interact with like the Raven behind me ~ the sim is really set up so well and wishes I was more into Shakespeare but without the help of the teacher or cliff notes I was completely lost trying to read it ~ Pamela by La Perla is at Designer Showcase for the rest of the month and comes with a nice hud that comes in 14 different colors to give you a change and keeping it fresh looking ♥♥

Gorgeous new skin Focus

The gorgeous skin you see is 7 Deadly s[K]ins newest called “Focus” that is available at Cosmetic Fair ~ am wearing it in Apricot with my own brows as I love that feature that Izara owner/creator of 7 Deadly s[K]ins has given us that option ~ at least take the ride below to try the demo that has been set out and see how this gorgeous skin looks on you ~ there is also matching shape if you would like to buy that as well ~ So many events going on that I have tried to keep up and looking at my Lindens I seem to have purchased way too many especially at Epiphany those gachas truly got me LOL ~ the nice thing is there are some gifts for you without becoming a member so remember to head over there was well, which that is what am doing now opening and sorting the gifts ~ leaving you with another quote ♥♥

summer heat…

desert heat

ut oh somehow I took a wrong tp and ended up in an ancient Arabian community, which seeing those slave girls with their Master I know that need to leave asap…first I have to rub more suntan lotion on me as the sun is just doing a beatdown on my skin ~ bet I would be stoned for wearing this cute Romper by KiB Designs ~ as I rub more lotion on myself I can say this is super comfy, really cool material and gorgeous textures 5 unique ones to choose from ~ this romper Clarita by KiB Designs can be found at Designer Showcase till the 31st and that means you have little over 2 weeks left ~ take the rides below so you can wander around looking at all the gorgeous items this month’s designer have for you ~ even my stylish Cat sunglasses by Haysuriza is also available for Designer Showcase ~ so unless you need me for anything else I think its best I scram quickly…hugzz♥♥

Beachin…

beach time...

Grabbing food, towel, umbrella and my beach ball I head back to the Baja Sands to enjoy some down time feeling the sun on my face and where I can dip my tootsies in the water ~ oh yes, and wearing a brand new bikini Summertime  by *B.D.R.* (Beautiful Dirty Rich) for those that do not know that abbreviation ~ my newest sponsor has created this uber cute suit with a hud that is just fantastic ~ I love designers that give you a nice variety without having to  spend all of your money on it ~ The hud gives you so many varieties that I truly had fun with this ~ top, bottom, straps, and tiny oval pieces with the left/right breast straps come together ~ each can be a different texture/color ~

Wearing *B.D.R* Summertime Bikini

From solids and patterns, you will enjoy having the ability to keep this fresh and new looking all summer long ~ if that is not enough for you the designer has created an additional Hud consisting of textures only that you can purchase too that is also very affordable ~ another plus for me that again it is nice to see a designer who understands value knowing most residents do not have the monies to purchase a fatpack just to get those special/extra textures or features ~ its a shame that a lot of designers are doing just that ~ ooh it is on Marketplace as well both with a super Promo price ~ Rides will be below♥♥♥

Risks…

Taking Risks

Have you ever taken a risk and wondered afterward was that a good thing? Like here I am standing on the railroad tracks risking my life just to get an interesting shot wearing this gorgeous gown “Summer” by DE. Boutique ~ this is SL so the risk was very slight and plus in RL this is completely illegal even if there are no trains coming ~ there are also other types of risks like changing jobs, moving to a new state even possibly cutting your hair ~ might seem silly but you have to open yourself up and take a leap forward. I took 2 risks today ~ trying on this gorgeous gown “Summer by DE. Boutique with prints as I just wasn’t sure how it would look on me ~ looks fantastic and the hud with 8 different textures gives you a variety.

Ferna in Pineapple by 7 Deadly s[K]ins
As well as risking look maybe a little different by trying on a new skin like the one am wearing Ferna by 7 Deadly s[K]ins that is now at Chapter 4 for only one more day so grab the ride at least try on the demo as most items at events are lower ~ Maybe risk could mean failure except that is life we have to take risks to learn, experience and live ~ yes live ~ way too many people just exist in this world without truly living it ~ take a risk and go over to Designer Showcase and try on this gorgeous gown Summer by DE. Boutique ~ might not be your style or colors just try on the Demo to see how it looks on you ~ there are 8 prints in a hud that come with this dress ~ while you are there look at all the other items DE. Boutique has to offer ♥ all affordable and remember time is ticking so take the rides below ~ will leave you with this quote that I saw long ago and think it is fitting ♥♥

“If you want it, go for it.

Take a risk – don’t always play it safe 

or you’ll die wondering”
