DaD 022

If I ever got a dog in real life it would probably be an English bulldog.  I think they have the cutest face ever.  I had a co-worker once who had one and hers was super big with all the folds in the skin and I would often joke with her saying that he had a face only his mother would like… meaning her.  She would laugh as she knew I was messing with her. It looked like this one here  except a bit wider.

Hope it’s been a great Monday!

Another weekend and that means a new round of The Neighborhood, where creators/designers bring you home decor items for $200L.   MeshedUP is bringing you this vintage hall bench that comes decorated with single sits for female and male.  Also with the bench is the rug that has a pair of slippers nestled beside it.   Great pieces to decorate your home with.

Have a great weekend!

More Exclusives for 21Shoe

Maimai2

Here are some more shoes that are part of this month’s round of 21Shoe event.  In the first picture I am featuring folder wedges in exclusive colors by Miamai that are made to wear with the SLink high feet.  Two great pair of shoes for the price of one.

Final Ingenue 21Shoe Jan 2015

The next pair of shoes I am showcasing are from Ingenue and are called the Marie heels in the colors wine and latte. They too are made to fit with the SLink high feet.  Just remember all the shoes are available for 24-hours and will never be sold again.

I will be featuring a couple more shoes in the next day or so, but check out the gallery on the 21Shoe website where you will also find the slurls to each of the stores.

I am pretty enthused with this last picture as I learned a new technique today and that is blending two pictures together.  It took me a while playing with it, though I am pleased with the outcome for my first try.

Hitting the bike trail…

Bike Riding - 14

I tried to convince Draco to let me be the one holding the map, cause we know how some men can be challenged with directions.  Though I must say we didn’t get lost —  then again we were not very far from home.   Like we haven’t even left the parking lot.

Bike Riding - 21

While we stopped for a moment to admire the scenery and catch our breaths I couldn’t resist getting a picture.  It was sort of a joke between us.  I take lots of pictures in-world and many never make it on this blog.  It’s really hard for me to remain idle and often when doing things and we’re chatting away I’m positioning the camera and snapping away.    He’s grown tolerant of this or I hope he has. He’s given me a special name as a result, so now as a joke I get to pulling out my camera every chance I get and tell him to say cheese!

Bike Riding - 16

These picnic bikes are the latest release from Aphrodite Shops, which have single and couple poses. The bikes have picnic boxes with food and drink.  You also get a wearable version with AO to ride.  We tried all the poses and they were all quite cute, some adjustments to be made due to our heights, though that is a fairly easy thing to do.

Bike Riding - 15

There are three color sets of bikes.  I only picture the pink and blue picnic bikes. The other not pictured is the “Casanova” male picnic bike that comes with sandwiches, wine glasses and a chocolate type wine.  You could say for a little romance along the trail.

Bike Riding - 5

You also get a menu controlled fire and an animated picnic log.  We had a little rest as you can see while the deer grazed nearby.

Bike Riding - 8 (2)

Looking at those hamburgers remind me that I haven’t had one in such a long time.  I’m suddenly hungry.

Diamond in the Rough

“Invest in the human soul.  Who knows, it might be a diamond in the rough.” ~ Mary McLeod Bethune

Diamond in the Rough

I have been wanting to style this dress for about two weeks now… it just got lost in the mess that my inventory has become.   There is no immediate remedy for the latter.   As for the dress finding it a couple of days ago I set it aside to style over the weekend.  I love the asymmetrical design and is what drew me to the dress in the first place.

Diamond in the Rough 2

The dress reveals a lot of skin from the sides, so when I first took a picture it just seemed there was more than I was comfortable with.   This prompted a search for a body tattoo that would detract the eyes from all the exposed skin.   Luckily I remembered seeing some at the Rock Attitude Fashion Fair.   I not only found the body tattoo I found this hair, which is a hair style I had a few year ago in real life.   The hair comes with a HUD to let you switch the color of one side.  I loved this.
