Forgotten trails

Happy Sunday! It’s going to be a lazy day for me even though I do have a few things on my to do list that must get done by today. I hope it’s been a relaxing weekend for all of you.

Today’s post is a fairly simple one and it’s been sitting in my drafts to get posted and it’s my last showcasing items from this round of Tres Chic, which ends on July 5th.

Enjoy what’s left of the weekend!

The windy effects

A quick post this morning as I try to get a jump start on my day to beat the afternoon rainstorm. ¬†I love rain, just prefer not to be driving when it’s pouring. Anyways, showcasing some more summer type items mostly from this round of The Liaison Collaborative and sporting shoes and hair from the Arcade.

Have a fantastic Saturday!

Some people just like to show their “ass” off …

I’ve probably only attempted to play tennis in real life maybe once or twice when I was much younger and¬†it wasn’t a sport that I took to. ¬†I can only sit and watch it for so long, though it’s the same with most sports. ¬†My attention just seems to wander off during sports games.

Today I am showcasing a few items in this scene/various pictures being shown. I really like seeing collaborations between designers and this is one of those times when everything is just marvelously done.

The tennis court set by DaD Designs comes with red/green clay tennis court, the metal fence kit modular system, the umpire chair and single and couple poses.  You can find this set at Shiny Shabby until May 15th and also get more details below credits.

Then you have Astralia who provided some of the accessories — tennis bleachers, umbrella and chairs, tennis balls basket, tubes and decor balls as well as the tennis rackets in different colors. ¬†You can find this set at Shiny Shabby as well.

The tennis dress I am wearing is by Dead Dollz and available in a few colors and can be found at the main store.  While not featured, but part of the collaboration are Gabriel who has tennis outfits for men at Shiny Shabby and poses by RK Poses at their main store.

This blondie just can’t handle a loss…she’s so competitive!! ¬†We started with posing using the Chloe & Odette pose by Ilaya at Pose Fair 2017, except Lotus started to move her face and arms and I¬†took a snap as she was playing around.

The Prissy Models

This is one of those days when I am just posting for fun as I am not officially featuring anything. ¬†I’m just being a high fashion sexy model as I was told to be and well I happily obliged!

One of the best¬†things about blogging¬†are¬†the friendships that can be developed as you support each other in the work that you do.¬†I am very fortunate to have met Exis through her¬†blog, which is an absolutely delight¬†to read as she often has something that makes me laugh or smile. ¬†Now having met her in-world I can attest she’s just as lively and spontaneous and her genuine spirit is something that truly makes her shine.

All the credits for what she is wearing and the lovely set she put together can be found at her blog, where you can also see her version of today’s picture. You can also check out her awesome photography at her Flickr photo-stream.

Taco Tuesday

003ps-1

A friend asked if I wanted to do a photo together before the year ended and I gladly said yes. ¬†It was fun to do and it was something different as it can get a little static just doing pictures of yourself. ¬†Collaborating with others from time to time is something that I would probably enjoy doing in the future. While I’ve been asked a few times by people on Flickr I have not readily accepted their offers to collaborate for a few reasons, mainly timing and I don’t know them even though I may follow their work or vice versa and they’ve been of the opposite sex.

015ps

I sort of been told this is an old trick in the book for trying to hook up.¬†While I am not saying that is the reason for the invites to collaborate it certainly raises its ugly head in the thought process of deciding whether it’s something I want to do or not. Though we have a whole new year ahead of us and something different would be a welcome change.

Today’s collaboration is with¬†Lotus Mastroianni, who is an established blogger and a friend. ¬†If you’re not familiar with her work, go check her out. ¬†She’s great at what she does.

I’m also wearing a new hair release by Wasabi Pills, which is an up-do and it is available at the Forest.

The gamers life

Games 038

It’s blistering hot outside today. ¬†It sucks the life out of you if you’re in that oppressive humid heat for very long or it does me. ¬†I’ll say thank goodness for air conditioning.

Today I’m showing a few items from a couple of creators. ¬†This gaming hole set is by Jian and it’s available starting today at the Festival of Sin Event that runs until September 15th. ¬†The set includes the tv console, chairs, pizza boxes, the gaming systems and light, table and chips. ¬† The wood texture is changeable by menu and the chairs have lots of fun poses, like this one I’m using sitting on my stomach. ¬†All that munching on junk food wore me out.

Next, is (Epia), who is participating in this round of Men Only Monthly with several new items for men.   The gentlemen shoes you see on the floor, comes with a color change menu giving you eight colors to choose from.  The fur hat with flaps also has color change options for both the main hat and side fur.  The men are being spoiled with so much color options to choose from as the panel cap comes with even more color and design options. The Men Only Monthly runs until September 15th.

Hope you all enjoy the rest of your Saturday!

Lesson 39

Snapshot_003

This is a lengthy one, but I believe relevant to each and everyone of us.  May you find it helpful.

© The Best Year of Your Life by Debbie Ford

Lesson 39:  Question Your Beliefs

The conclusions we form as a result of our life experiences become the beliefs we hold about ourselves, others, and the world. If we were the last person picked on the kickball team, if our high school crush didn’t return our affections, if we flunked math or didn’t have the fashion sense expressed by some of our peers, it’s likely that we picked up some limiting beliefs about ourselves that aren’t serving us, even to this day.

Here are some common examples of limiting beliefs: I’m not good enough. I don’t matter. There’s something wrong with me. I’m unwanted. I don’t belong. I’m unimportant. No one cares about me.

These hidden beliefs shape our thought processes and drive our personalities, telling us what we are and are not capable of. To move beyond them, we must first expose them, and then question their validity. This is your assignment this week.

Snapshot_002

Your Self-Love Assignment

Look back upon the negative incidents that occurred during your childhood. Did your parents get divorced? Did you move and feel unwelcome in your new environment? Were you rejected by someone you wanted to have as your friend? Once you’ve made a list of the ten most upsetting events of your childhood, ask yourself the following questions about each one and begin to expose some of your core beliefs:

  1. What belief did I form as a result of this experience?
  2. How long have I held this belief?
  3. Does this belief serve me anymore?
  4. What belief could I replace it with that would better reflect who I am today?

Self-Love Points Earned

Give yourself 50 points for every limiting belief you expose and transform.

To help you prepare…

 

V1

Sometimes you make the perfect plans for something, and hope that everything goes well and then nothing goes the way you expect. ¬†That’s been my afternoon and so what do you do? ¬†Improvise.

This would be the equivalent of my date not showing up after I went to all the trouble of preparing a “heart”y meal of pizza and icing the beer for him and the double chocolate ones for me. ¬†

Aphrodite Shops has been one of my favorite groups for a while now and I’m now honored to be blogging their items. ¬† I’m not disappointed with these heart shape place mats that rezz a feast if you’re looking for something sweet and enjoyable to share with your loved one on Valentines Day.

V2

I could have gone for a much more fancier meal, which are included in the place mat. ¬†Though you can’t go wrong with pizza and beer either. ¬† ¬†I settled down to watch a movie all the while talking on the phone enjoying the red bouquet of roses with the delectable chocolates and cookies from this gift tray, other wonderful Valentine treats from Aphrodite. Watching this cutie pie in this movie more than made up for all the issues I had today.

May your Valentines be special.
