Porch Ponderings

Hey there lovely readers! This will be my last post until next week, my guess on Thursday, since I’m heading upstate tomorrow to finally see family!  I haven’t seen them since October and it’s way overdue.  We also will be celebrating kiddo’s birthday so she can have a party with everyone there.  Before I left I had to get another big post done for you, this time featuring amazing work from What Next, Lisp, Finishing Touches, Cynful along with many others.

Cynful just released the fab Dapper Top and Skirt that are made to be worn together but also can be worn separate, you know how I love that.  Both come in a large assortment of colors and the skirt allows you to wear with or without the belt that also changes color.  From Infiniti Poses is one of several sets you can find at the Pose Fair right now called Blowing Smoke.  She also has a smoking set with sit down poses.

Nothing But The Waves

I know! What is going on with my posts lately! I have over a foot of snow outside right now, that all fell in 24hrs, and yet I have beach inspired post!  This one started when I received the DaD Designs Heart Shaped Palms and waited until I found something that would be a good match for it, enter in the Country Clubhouse Fishing Shack from Sahi Designs that can be found at the Home and Garden Expo.  The shack comes with the boat and fishing poles and comes texture change and loaded with animations.  It also includes green trees to be used in a forest setting but I removed those for the beach.  Also have to mention the super cool skull chairs from Hate This that come in several color options.  They aren’t new items and have been out awhile but I have just been waiting for the right items to show them off with.  My clothes are new from Cynful and anklet is from Oxide for 20Twenty, while my pose is not included in the boat but is new from !Bang for Shiny Shabby.

Doesn’t It Look Like I’m Getting Ready?

Hey there! This is my third Home & Garden Expo post!  I can’t begin to tell you how many awesome things are at this event!  I’ve discovered several new-to-me creators that I will be keeping my eye on and picked up a fabulous work of art for my personal home.  Today is about the walk in closet by Bazar that comes in dark  and white wood and in both male and female versions.  I added the chair and table from HJM Designs and rug from Spargel & Shine Homes.  I also included a few new items from The Liaison Collaborative along with some of my decor faves.  If you haven’t already get down to the Expo AND TLC and check out all the goodies, you will NOT be disappointed!

Never Enough Coffee or Shopping

So, I’m gonna start out with some shameless self promotion today and mention that I was nominated for Favorite Fashion Blogger for the Avi Choice Awards!  I am seriously in shock about it but feel honored that someone thought enough about me to nominate me! So if you are so inclined please go to the link above and vote for me and for all your favorites in the fashion circles of SL!

Today’s outfit is one that came together effortlessly, which is always my favorite kinds.  So I probably don’t have to say how much I love this look, however,I do want to make special mention of two things.  The first is Cynful’s Fall-In-Line top which comes with three different options.  The shirt comes with a vest that you can wear with the top or on it’s own, or you can wear the shirt, like I am. by itself as well.  This is all included when you purchase buy vest color and can then add or remove what you want by hud that is included.  My second mention is the Quad jewelry set from Cae that comes with a hud that allows you to show or hide each of the four stands of necklace (I’m using three) which lets you customize for so many different looks, it also includes a large variety of metal and jewel color options on the hud as well.  My location today was the gorgeous Loch Nobel sim that has both a fabulous town to explore or sit and relax as well as surrounding countryside to enjoy!
