Always take time to make a joyful mess

Yesterday, in organizing my photos for the week I realized that I got several showcasing items at Bloom.  Now if you’re familiar with this event, then you know it’s a short event that lasts just a little over two weeks with doors closing at the end of the month.  I had the pleasure of blogging the event and it’s always great to be a part of an event like this.  The downside sometimes can be when you also have a lot of sponsors at the event and you try to squeeze everyone in.

Saying that I’ll be doing a second post again tomorrow.  Today’s picture is showcasing a release by DRD for Bloom.  The cake counter is messy and reminiscent of when I bake, because I like bringing everything out, the recipe book, the ingredients, the bowls and baking dish.

The counter is 9 land impact and comes with animated poses. You get to clean, whisk, beat and read the recipe book — great for role-play.  The rest of the items used are listed below.

Hello again. I’m going to have to leave early tomorrow to be the first in line to get my driver’s license renewed.  I knew that it was going to expire this year, but it just totally slipped my mind and I’ve been driving around without a valid one.  I’ll be rushing no doubt because its early to beat the morning traffic as it’s on the opposite side of town from where I travel to work. This means I’m posting tomorrow’s post now.

It’s a mixture of decor, starting with items from a few events, FaMESHed, The Liaison Collaborative and Illuminate and a few sponsors all mixed in one.  I’ll point you to credits this time, but for sure I wanted to show you more pictures of the build that was used to showcase the furniture.

Have a great start to the week!

Secret ingredient

Morning everyone.  I’m breaking my post every other day this week, because after some re-evaluating my still need to post blogging stuff.  I have more than a few items from sponsors that are at events that will end soon.  While I have a valid excuse for posting as late as this I really would love to give them a little more exposure than just a day or so before the event ends.

Without further talking on my end, check out the credits below for everything. Enjoy the rest of your week!

Surf's Up Motel

Hello everyone!  I hope you’re having a glorious day. Today’s post is a combination of Summerfest and The Gacha Guardians.  I’m not going into much details, but will leave the pictures and credits to speak for themselves. The rest of the pictures below from this point on are to give more of a close up of the items shown in my main photo above.  They are not processed much only crop and a slight blur.

I should point out that the pillows on the chairs are not part of the set, just in case you thought they were.


Make sure not to miss the small gecko there on the floor.

To thine own self be true

Morning everyone, even though that by the time that I finish writing this it will be gone into afternoon. I had such a long day yesterday, where the majority of it was spent in one room after another just waiting and patience isn’t my strongest suit. Though yesterday is over and today is another day and while my body is still sickly my mind is sharp.

Today is a mixed post of fashion and decor. Jules, fellow blogger and now friend said something that resonated and I’ve often thought of myself. Are we a bit redundant talking about everything we’re showing when it’s all listed in credits? For the most part and I would say 99% of bloggers only blog what they like and reviewing is literally absent.

I think what most of us do is give sneak previews or showcase items in how we may dress up a fashion item or decor or landscape the various genres of items we receive. Often giving inspiration to others who may not know how to fit something into a room, home, land or even their bodies.  I for one lack the fashion skills that others have to find the perfect jewelry and makeup to accessorize my look. It’s a bit of laziness to go digging in my inventory and just because I use the very minimal in real life as well that it’s carried over into SL.  That’s one thing to love about the diversity of blogs we follow. I get to be awed by seeing how you fashionistas out there look and put yourself together and envy you just a little.

Anyways, I’ve rambled on long enough and here we are at credits. All great stuff right?

By the way make sure to go check out Jules awesome blog at Sunshine & Sparkles!
