Bombi

Ok so a really quick post today. Real life has been crazy busy and then while I was editing this photo I realized my legs didn't look so great but I honestly don't have time to redo this photo. So you will just have to deal with it. Anyways there's a small event going on in SL called Bombi featuring Korean designers in SL. It's small and cute but the items are high quality. I picked up a few things and decided to feature this adorable romper from BCC. It's light weight and screams summer to me. I paired it with the new hair Anais from Wasabi Pills for Zombie Popcorn as well as these SLink sandals. You just add them to your SLink mesh feet, they are so cute! So if you are looking for something fun, cute and different head over to Bombi. Even if you don't have lindens to spend there are dollarbies and Lucky Boards that move very quickly. Have a wonderful rest of your day!

We Salute You

I wanted to do a quick post today before I had off to a barbecue, so please excuse the not so great editing of this photo. I want to take the time on this Memorial Day to remember those who have served, to thank those who are currently serving and to bless those who will serve in the future. Words can't describe how highly I think of all those who have sacrificed  to keep our country safe. So if you know someone who falls into such a category, thank them today. Shake their hand, give them a hug, buy them a drink or just tell them you are thinking of them. We owe our freedom to them and we can never lose sight of that. And if you know a family who has lost a loved one to protecting our country, reach out to them and honor their fallen hero. And with that I hope you all have a wonderful rest of your Memorial Day.

Love Strips You Down

I just love these new poses with the hearts available from Adorkable at My Attic. That being said, I wanted to show them off without um...any clothing being a distraction? So yes I decided to take these photos in only panties. Often times though, I feel like I don't know much about love. Don't get me wrong, I have people I love like my family and the babies I nanny for. But romantic love? It's very foreign to me. I think that love like that strips you down so that your heart and soul is bare to the person you're in love with. And that is a very scary thing. Maybe one day I will find that but I'm certainly not in any rush. That being said, I'm very familiar with the feelings lust and passion. Who isn't? But love, lust and passion are completely different. I'll leave you all with a quote to ponder what I'm rambling about.


Passion. It lies in all of us. 
Sleeping...waiting...and though unwanted...unbidden...it will stir...open its jaws, and howl.
 It speaks to us...guides us. Passion rules us all. And we obey. What other choice do we have? Passion is the source of our finest moments. 
The joy of love...the clarity of hatred...and the ecstasy of grief.
 It hurts sometimes more than we can bear. 
If we could live without passion, maybe we'd know some kind of peace. 
But we would be hollow. Empty rooms, shuttered and dank.
 Without passion, we'd truly be dead.
(Said by Angel in Buffy the Vampire Slayer)

Need For Speed

Growing up, one of favorite movies was Top Gun. I actually first saw it on Laser Disc. Plus, guys in uniform, need I say more? So I've been hanging onto this Top Gun shirt for while and finally paired it with the Kapone unisex sweats for a picture. It's not often that I get a graphic shirt in SL but I couldn't resist this one.


I also decided to recreate Kelly McGillis's look. The wind swept hair, the jacket. She was hot stuff back in the day. At least I thought so. Now if I only had a pilot of my own to take me flying.

Keep Calm and Blog

So just a quick post to start off my day. Recently Adorkable released an awesome gift that is geared towards bloggers. It's a cute conversation bubble that comes with 18 different blogger themed phrases and 5 poses to use with it. I chose the phrase Keep Calm and Blog as I feel its appropriate for me lately. Although I'm new to blogging, I absolutely love it. And when work gets crazy or overwhelming I turn to blogging. In this pic I'm wearing one of Elikatira's latest hair releases as well as this adorable new halter top from Jane. It's very breezy and casual and I love it. So to all you bloggers out there, remember "Keep Calm and Blog." Have a wonderful day!

What Next and More at the Home & Garden Expo

So if you haven't heard the Home and Garden Expo opened this weekend. I personally love to decorate so this was a great opportunity for me to pick up some new things from great designers and discover new ones. Of course, one of my favorite brands is What Next. The couch and chair are part of the Charlotte line. They both have singles, friends, couples and activity poses. When I created this room I went for a beachy reading nook so I used the activity poses. I added the Charlotte coffee table, wall prints and lilies along with some older What Next pieces.


Second Spaces has these adorable travel chairs and when you buy the Cape Cod one, the proceeds go to Relay For Life. I used to vacation on Cape Cod as a kid so of course I had to have it. Two other items whose proceeds go to RFL are the blue cabinet from BoatHouse and the wall decal from Wall Candy. So if you have a home or a skybox and you need new furniture, head to the Home and Garden Expo.

A Day in New England

So I saw this cute dress on Plurk and knew I had to have it! Spright is at Culture Shock and these dresses in a few colors were just released. Of course, the colors I chose made me think of New England, sailing, lighthouses, lobster and beaches. I've lived in New England my whole life and spent many summers on the beaches. I've been sailing, toured the lighthouses, eaten seafood until I couldn't anymore and had a sunburn so bad that my mother lovingly called me "lobster butt." Nice, right? Anyways I found this adorable New England sim and decided to show off the look I put together there.


Honestly, it felt like coming home. And have you ever been sailing? If you haven't, try it out. It's a lot more fun than you would think. I went with a great group and had a blast.

Torn

I love finding new stores, don't you? So some of you may know I took a two year break from SL and have only been back since January. So exploration has been a huge thing lately and it led me to this great store Torn. I had to restrain myself from fatpacking everything. Anyways I wanted to highlight two dresses in this post. The first one is casual, something I would totally throw over a bikini after a day at the beach. I wanted to put a necklace with it but couldn't find one I liked enough so I put on this lovely necklace tattoo from Tenjin instead. I am slowly buying up that store.


The next look was a bit more fancy. My friend saw me in this and asked if I had a hot date. Gold/tan isn't a color I find myself wearing a lot but I love how this look turned out. To add some color I added these cute earrings by Magic Nook from The Dressing Room. I'm even wearing one of the new hairs from Truth. Now go shopping!

Daydreaming

So like every other fashionista I know, I can't wait for Collabor88 each month. This months theme is daydream and I found quite a few things I fell in love with. First was the romper from Hucci, I wore this for a long time in world, did not want to take it off. I paired it with some cute flats and another glorious Truth hair.


The next outfit is from*BOOM*. You can't tell in the photo but it's backless and so dreamy, a comfy look for sure. I paired this shirt with a Burley hair and yet another pair of flats (I own more flats than I do heels, is that weird?). In both looks I am wearing yet another Tenjin tattoo called cherry blossom. So feminine and perfect for both looks. I also need the mention the Summer Beauty Festival. Have you been yet? I have and am wearing new Glitter Eye Makeup from Izzie's. With 20 colors to choose from, you can't go wrong. My poses are also available at Collabor88. Adorkable made these awesome Daydreamer poses.

The last thing I want to show you is this fantastic hammock I bought as well. It's from Cheeky Pea and I just want to lay in it all day. It comes with so many poses, now if I could just find a guy to come help me check out the couples poses. *Giggles*

Game of Thrones

So I've had these pics on my computer for a while and I keep forgetting that I wanted to blog them. I am a huge fan of Game of Thrones. I've read all the books (rereading them in fact) and I adore the show. Now with a show this good its hard to pick a favorite character. Is it Tyrion the witty imp? Jon Snow, the bastard who joins the Nights Watch? Or Sansa Stark, a noble girl who must endure hell at the hands of her betrothed? For me, its Daenerys Targaryen, the true queen of the Seven Kingdoms. Not only is she gorgeous but she's strong and smart and just very different from everyone else. Her character has been developed extremely well in the books and so far the show has mirrored that. When I saw this dress from Gizza I knew immediately its something Dany would wear.


The Mother of Dragons waits for her tiny babies to return to her. She is the inspiration for the darker brows with my blonde hair and the unnatural color of my eyes, a purple blue. A beauty and a fighter, she is a character I can relate to. Now I just need a Khal Drogo.

The Sniffles

So I haven't been feeling well at all lately, but getting sick when you work with kids, well its kind of expected. Anyways a friend sent me "Grandma's Chicken Soup" on SL and that inspired these photos. I decided to throw on my adorable cupcake PJ's and hop in bed with my pose prop from Sway's.


Who knew I was running a fever? *Sniffles*


Finally, when I didn't feel so drained, I headed down to the kitchen to warm up my tea. I think I may be wearing these PJ's for a while.

Exploring TTown

So I know this outfit has been blogged to death but I couldn't resist! I didn't think I would like these pants but these are the first mesh pants I've found that don't shrink my tush at all! I never want to take them off. Tyr Rozeblum released some colors of these pants at a new monthly event just for mesh called FAMESHED. I picked up these pants and the full release of the top at her store at Culture Shock. The textures are just beautiful.

Since the pants are so low I paired them with these wonderful tattoos from Tenjin. The henna across my chest, shoulder and arms is from Rezipsa Loc, another culture shock find. Culture Shock is yet another great event on the grid. 184 creators of clothing, furniture, poses and more have come to one space to benefit Medicins Sans Frontieres (Doctors Without Borders). I've been a few times already and you should definitely check it out. Even my poses are from Culture Shock, a new release by Glitterati called Bitch.

I adore this new sim too! I swear to you, if you took out all the people in my home town it would look like this! We even have a covered bridge, which is still a bit creepy to drive over FYI.

Whisps of Wisteria

Ok so this will be my first post about SL furniture! Yes, yes, I probably own as much furniture as I do clothing. And when I saw this release from Funky Junk I knew I had to have it. I've been gardening most of my life and one of my favorite things is wisteria! It's gorgeous! So when I saw that it was part of this gazebo with a bed, I knew I had to have. Excuse the photography though, I swear shots of furniture are way harder!


I put mine out back next to the waterfall and yes it comes with a bed! So rez just the gazebo, just the bed or both. It has tons of single and couples poses. Of course, I'm a single gal so I can only show you a singles pose. But take your lover over to Funky Junk and try it out!


I think I'll take a nap now, but you should go shopping!
