A Little Holiday Shopping

Hey all!  Please forgive my lack of posts this week.  I’ve been setting up new land with my friend Dawne and decorating my home for Christmas. On top of that my hubby has been home all week in RL on vacation so I’ve been opting to spend more time with him and kiddo this week.  However, I’m back today with this fab outfit I absolutely adore.  It includes newness from Truth, IT!, Ison, Blueberry and Breathe.  I also got myself a new face, something we can only say in SL, and purchased a new Catwa head, so now I can show off so much awesome makeup that I come across for that head!

My Blog Turned Five

Hey my readers! Yep, just as my title says my little old blog turned five on November 17th;   It’s hard to believe I’ve been blogging that many years.  I started this blog as a way to show my cute outfits I put together and to have a creative outlet when time allowed. Over these years I’ve struggled to find my place, my style and my voice in an ever changing and growing blogger population.  I’ve learned to embrace who I am, constantly challenge myself and to grow in my skills and abilities.  There have been times of frustration and rejection along with times of great excitement and acceptance.  Over these years I’ve had, and still have, the opportunity to blog for some of the most amazing creators and events on the grid.  For them, and for all those who follow and read my blog, or fave my photos on Flickr, I’m thankful.  Now let’s see what my sixth year brings!

Somewhere Only We Know

look 869_002
So I decided to rope Etherian into helping me with today’s post since I do not show off couples/friends poses enough and it was also time for him and I to get a pic together.  I headed over to the always beautiful Blithe sim to find a great picturesque locale and used new Dreamers pose from An Lar Poses.  His new outfit and shoes are from the latest round of The Mens Dept, while my ensemble come from all over the grid.  I have to make special mention about Veechi who I have come to adore since they do makeup for Genesis Lab.  I know it’s hard to see but I’m wearing the blush pack I got at Summerfest (which is now closed) and shadows that are currently at C88.  They also have made beauty marks and freckles that can be used for Genesis heads.

My Urban Oasis

So I’ve had this idea for awhile to do a small urban type of garden or patio area.  It may stem from watching too many tiny house shows or seeing gorgeous inner city gardens on tv shows, but I wanted to do something that one may have if they only had a small area or courtyard behind their urban town home. This is my result!  I made a small area with help from the Apple Fall and then added in the super cool Madeleine’s Patio set from Uber along with fab Boho inspired goodies from Shabby Tabby and Ariskea.  I had so much fun doing this and I’m considering doing it again down the road; I even kept the wall set up just in case!  Hope you all like it, I think this is one of my fave sets I’ve done ever.

Good Morning! My friend Kimbra changed her pretty sim Kilu over for Spring a bit ago and I had yet to go visit, so the other night Etherian and I decided to head over and make that the location for a pose together.  Not only were we long overdue to a pic together but I also wanted to show you this new !Bang pose that I adore that can be found at the current Spring Seasons Story.  He is wearing new Blankline from The Mens Dept. while I am wearing newness from ISON, Essenz, Genesis Lab and Yummy.
