{ Honey Sweet } NEW for Candy Fair!

Hi guys!  I’m a little behind on getting this up and posted but there are some sweet new poses available from oOo Studio at Candy Fair right now.  Candy Fair runs until October 17th, so you have plenty of time to get on over there and get the goodies!

The first is a new collection of couples poses called “Honey” – four different poses in varying sits, stands and lounging perfect for capturing a pic with that person you are sweet on.  Honey-01_FINALHoney-02_FINAL Honey-03_FINALHoney-04_FINAL

There is also a set of 7 singles poses in classic pin-up style called “Tootsie”.

This was my first year hitting up the Candy Fair and I will admit, I got sugar shocked and was overwhelmed with the cute.  Bai lindens!  You’ll love it.  And don’t forget to hit up the Gacha Alley for more surprises!

{ A Weekend Away at The Lodge }

Lodge-Stand_FINAL

It’s no secret that I could use a vacation.  I feel like I’ve been burning the candle at both ends for quite a while now.  I would love to have a place to go to retreat in RL, but for now, all I have is SL and the imagination to create what might be the getaway that I need in the moment.  Perhaps I can live vicariously through my photos and pretend that I’m really there… enjoying the sounds of nature, the nearby creek, the birds singing, and the crackling of the fire, while the steam from my coffee tickles my nose as I take a sip while curling up in a cozy chair to read.  To do… nothing for a while.  It’s a beautiful things sometimes… to do nothing.  Even better when you can do nothing with someone else who enjoys doing nothing along with you.

Maybe one day I’ll get away….

Brevity-single_DRAFT

In my neck of the woods, it’s just about time for school to start up again which for me is accompanied by a huge sigh of relief as the house is much quieter.  However, it won’t be long before I’m back at school myself, as I’ll be finally going back to get my Bachelor’s degree.  “MOM! I finally know what I wanna be when I grow up!”  Hitting the books again after all these years is a bit daunting, but I’ve been assured by everyone that I don’t have anything to worry about.  See back in my youth, I will admit, I was pretty academically minded and an over-achiever.  I might cry if i got a “B”.  And that perfectionist side of me is going to have a hard time letting some kids half my age get better test scores than me, so I’m going to have to up my game.  Make sure they know I mean business.  Gotta get in practice of late nights and lots of coffee…  Oh. Wait.  I might already be ready for that. *grins*

For those of you I know who are going after your education as an adult.. I applaud you and admire you.  It won’t be easy, but that was only 18 years ago right? *nervously laugh*

Brevity-Close_FINAL

Alright, about the pics… First I’d like to say I’d been waiting to blog this cute ready-for-school look for a couple weeks now.  Pretty much from the moment I laid eyes on this plaid dress from Valentina E. at the August round of FaMESHed.  It was just right for what I wanted.  Paired with the super adorable knee high socks and heels from LaRoo and maybe I can call it ‘geek chic’.  I’d also like to mention that this really well done, MESH, low-prim, and low-cost schoolroom that is a perfect set for your back-to-school photos or RPing I found on Marketplace from Utilizator.  And lastly, the poses (in the classroom) are from the new group gift “Brevity” by oOo Studio that will be in store in the next day or two.  The class picture is also courtesy of oOo Studio’s “Yearbook” pose/prop… with several different poses to choose from and backdrop colors.

{ Spring Fever needs a Vacation }

Fever_FINAL

In many parts of the United States right now, it’s Spring Break.  The ‘unofficial’ peak vacation period of the year.  It’s funny every year as this time approaches wherever I go in RL, someone asks me “Doing anything for Spring Break?” I usually stare at them blankly for a moment, not understanding and thinking in my head “Am I supposed to be doing anything?”  Then reply with a very disappointing  “Nope. Just the usual.”  I honestly don’t think I’ve ever gone anywhere for Spring Break except that one time in highschool, and well… it wasn’t to wild and exciting times in Florida like most highschool and college kids going to frolic on the sandy beaches and get their drink on… instead I was in Georgia. >insert unsure face here<

So since going somewhere exotic and exciting for Spring Break is a little beyond my reality at this point, I’ll just treat my spring fever with a little SL vacation.  In my search for the nearest airport, I was actually quite surprised there are a large number of them in SL that you can fly around and many have hangars for your planes, jets, and helicopters.  My flight landed me in the Miami Airport.  I will not go into detail about how I was nearly run down by one pilot .. but I suppose I was loitering on the runway a bit. 😛 Hey! I had to show off all my pretty spring goodies, like this cute new ColdLogic dress in yummy melon.  Added my new espadrilles from Gos Boutique, and struck a pose or two.  You can pick up the poses at oOo Studio right now for FREE to VIP Group Members!  And now, if you’ll excuse me… I have a date with the beach!

Neva-Night_FINAL

This was my “Goodnight and Farewell” tribute to the beautiful Neva River Sim… I wanted to enjoy it in the dark quiet of night.. the beautiful enchanted forest.  I stayed for quite a while even while editing the photo… listening to the trickling of the waterfall and stream beneath my feet.  It will be missed.

Many thanks again Neva and Bootney and Alex of Skye Studio for bringing us such a lovely place to come and fill us with peace.

Please listen to the music I have chosen to accompany this photo… I found it to be very fitting and hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
