{ Cozy Christmas }

 

Twas the night before Christmas….

… that all through the house

this blogger was too busy, there was no time to slouch.

 

The stockings were hung by the chimney with care

but not on her platform, no she wouldn’t be found there.

 

For real life was calling; there was much still to do

and Second Life would have to wait…no blogging pictures yet – boo!!

 

But now that the gifts have been given, the presents are unwrapped

the foods all been eaten and that means I can finally RELAX

 

So off to my computer I flew like a flash

logged in and got snapping and prayed not to crash.

 

I sprang from my seat, and to myself gave a ‘wewt wewt’

The task was complete and the result was pretty cute!

 

Although it’s a day late, the sentiment is still valid alright..

HAPPY BELATED CHRISTMAS TO ALL, AND TO ALL A GOOD NIGHT!

{ Need a little help with my swing } The Liaison Collaborative is OPEN!

Golf_FINAL2

Hello lovelies… Spring is in full force here in the northern hemisphere, the world is bright and green and the days are getting longer so you can spend more time soaking up the sun!  For many people, it also means spending a lot more time being active instead of sitting behind the computer.. A time to rejuvenate and re-prioritize is never a bad thing.  We all need a little break from once in a while.  The Liaison Collaborative and the lead lady in charge, Katya Valeska is no exception.  The event is running it’s last round currently before taking a little hiatus for the summer.  But we’ve been assured, it will be back in full swing in a few months!  So for now, come enjoy this month’s offerings with a very male-friendly and focused theme of “The Gentleman’s Club”.  Ladies, don’t let the theme scare you, there are still plenty of unisex goodies as well as masculine inspired female fashions.  This round just opened May 15th, and will continue to run until June 10th.  Hope to see you there!

{ Lost Love’s Letters }

Some things you can’t go back to, some things need left alone
Don’t mess with a memories of a life passed on
Oh the tumbling reservations at the heart of my mistakes
Oh some things you can’t go back to cause you let them slip away

I don’t wanna be a witness to a path that’s overgrown
I don’t wanna see this house not be a home
‘Cause time has taken toll on what we couldn’t see
No I don’t wanna be a witness to the end of you and me

How am I gonna make each moment better than the last
How am I gonna make it better if I can’t go back

Oh the tumbling reservations at the heart of my mistakes
Oh some things you can’t go back to cause you let them slip away
Oh some things you can’t go back to

{ Not Everything is Black and White }

The Secret Affair will be opening in just a few days… I’m already seeing some really great stuff for this round and it’s definitely spurring on my imagination!  Valentina E. had a knack for pulling off some sophisticated outfits that can be pushed toward the classic, formal end or border the edgy, fantasy realm.  I love the off the shoulder cuts and dark colors with rich textures. The high collar made me go for the latest updo from TRUTH “Harmony” which also comes with a ponytail version.  Also at The Secret Affair you’ll find Fetch with a great gacha this round full of bold chunky earrings.  I loved the design of these, it paired so well with the curves in the dress cut as well as the heels I’m wearing from Just Design.  David Freeman’s notoriously sexy shoes are my go to when wearing any one of my mesh bodies these days.  He’s got versions for Belleza, TMP, Slink, AND Maitreya.  These can be found at the Uber event going on right now.  I just needed a pop of color and Cheeky Pea‘s Priyanka Set (also at Uber) was the perfect touch of vivid color I needed for my minimalist backdrop.

Fierce-full_FINAL

I am sure this happens to most bloggers from time to time.. where you do some pictures and intend to blog something but time and real life obligations get the better of you?  Then the event is past or the items aren’t **NEW** so why bother, right?  Usually I just have to put it aside and forget about it moving on to the next deadline.  It started with these super sexy boots from Glamistry that I really loved and knew I wanted to show them off but needed just the right outfit.  A few weeks ago during the last round of The Secret Affair, I finally found the look I’d been wanting and I really liked how it came together.  I spent a considerable amount of time fiddling with lighting and getting the shots and just never got to edit and blog them.  Well… better late than never.  So here I am… fierce and full of attitude.  Blogging whether you like it or not!

{ Baby you’re so classic } featuring….FaMESHed, LaRoo, and Belleza

This post is wayyyy overdue, so I apologize for the not so newness of these items but maybe they will still be new to some of you! The month just got away from me much too quickly.  The month is not completely over so there’s still time to catch this round of FaMESHed or Belleza’s November Best Buys.  All clothing items will be available in stores after the event is over.  I decided to make use of all the really great fashion options there were not only from FaMESHed but also from DRIFT and LaRoo (who incidentally just introduced a fantastic new collection of mesh heels w/HUD-controlled feet), and create a classic 3 look preview:  one more uptown, one more downtown and one more casual… I hope you like!

BBB-Nov-all

**Edit** due to holiday, family visiting and then illness this post didn’t make it in time for November, but all the November round of FaMESHed clothing will be in their stores soon…  Sorry! :\

Gonna keep this post short and sweet.  So much to do, so little time.

Inspired by the lovely fantasy style MESH outfit that was available for Fifty Linden Fridays from Valentina E.  I grew some pointy ears and romped through the forest playing with leaves and enjoying the changing colors.  Sometimes a little fresh air and fancy free time is just what we need this time of year to refresh and recharge.  Now go enjoy your weekend!
