Until next time…

Hello everyone.  I’m doing a second post today to finish up at least another post for The Season’s Story and a few sponsors.  This will be my last post for a few weeks as I need to take care of a health issue that I’ve been dealing with for several months now.  I won’t go into specific details, but it entails me taking a blogging break from now to the second week in February.  At least I hope it’s that short of a time frame, but either way I’ll be back to continue.

In the meantime I wish you all well and hope to see you all again soon!

Flamingo Island

Hello everyone! I’m still a bit groggy from a bit of a sleep in, but it’s a holiday weekend here and I was in a dream state kind of sleep. My dream last night was riding a horse and then found myself stopping to do something and was inside of a building with my horse, and as I was looking at some stuff in another room someone took my horse.  I retrieved it and then woke up around that part. No idea where that dream came from.. though gives me the urge to look for my horse in-world and go riding.

There were no humans around when I was shooting this picture so I asked some friendly flamingos to join me.  I’ve also used this title before in a previous post from last year when I used some flamingos in a photo for a tropical fair post. Interestingly enough it was also on a 3rd day of the month, except it was June then.

Anyways, today’s picture is all about summer fun showcasing two ongoing events –Summerfest and The Gacha Guardians.  Check out credits for all the details and as always any questions feel free to ask me.

Your teddy bear…

I’m not sure where I got the energy after a long day of travel to go to a local play where the story centered on middle aged people who all had a story. The main characters was a couple who met just after college and then their lives went in different directions.  He’s now a divorced man who was used to a certain way of life and bit bound in tradition.  He was overly polite too and lived life believing something would eventually happen to him, so that he really lived a rather lifeless life in the grips of depression. The woman was 4 times divorced, twice with the same man who had been abusive at least once.

They meet again after 30 years rediscovering themselves and each other as other characters are introduced throughout giving tidbits of practical insight and advice. It was a good play, though a bit confusing to know where it was going until the end where they both decide not to take the second chance they were given. She decides to return to her life of turmoil and he decides not to take the chance and go after her. That’s what I walked away with. It’s really up to you whether you can change or not. The next phase of your life is really in your hands. The possibilities that life holds are there if only you choose to pursue them.

I’ll leave you with that wisdom for a Monday, but make sure you check out all the wonderful things I’m showcasing today and peruse credits.

Those little side trips

Happy weekend everyone.  It’s been a busy day for me and I’m really too tired for words — so I’m going to keep this short.  If you haven’t made it over to Tres Chic you’re missing out on some great stuff.  I’m wearing a casual sweater and jeans by Entice that are so comfy for the weekend or those last minute grocery runs when you have no food in the house.

I’m also wearing a new hairstyle by Iconic called Nicolette.  I was real fortunate to be selected as a blogger and look forward to showing you more great hairstyles in the near future. The hair is rigged mesh and materials enabled and comes in a variety of color tones. You can find it now at Hairology, which runs until January 30th. I’m also wearing some lipstick by Zibska, which is called Nerissa and available at this round of The Secret Affair.

Never stop learning, because life never stops to teach you

I absolutely love this “Once Upon a Time – Vintage School” gacha set, a newly released set by THOR for this month’s round of Chapter Four. Everything pictured minus the attic building and some stack of books are part of the set. There is a total of 45 items with 18 mini-sets, 3 rare and 1 reward. The rares are the table, chair and the blackboard and they all have animations. My favorite piece is actually the spinning top toy as I have one of these in real life that my eldest sister gave me, because she knows I have a love for old stuff.

The rustic attic is by Pixel Mode and it is another great decor item at this round of The Liaison Collaborative and was just perfect for creating this school setting. It has a land impact of 18 and it has a texture change floor that can be accessed by clicking the door.  Makes for a great one room home as well.

I’m also featuring the items that I am wearing. The hair is a relatively new release by enVOGUE called Giovanna and it’s available at the main store. The dress is another find at the Liaison Collaborative and it’s by Entice and available in several colors.  The Oyster heels/boot type combo are by Empire and are currently at Uber. I can never say enough that I love the concept of paying a slightly higher price for a 12-color Hud that you get when you purchase a pair of shoes from this maker. Plus the ability to mix and match on the different sections of the shoe.

Last item is the pose used, which is part of the “With My Baby” series from K&S Poses. It’s actually a modded version, as the original has the child facing you as you have your hands extended towards him or her. I just didn’t want to be the whole center of attention in this picture so I just un-linked them and turned her around.

I also want to thank my sister PB for helping me out with this picture.
