In the Mix

I was super excited when I got this backdrop from a gacha, and I knew exactly the pose I wanted to do on it. I was thrilled when I saw that Rebel Poses had one that would fit oh-so-perfectly into my little vision!

I have been collecting strippable clothing just for this purpose too. This scenario is something that entices me in real life, so like, I was glad to put this scene together.

Growing Along

One thing that’s difficult with a pregnancy that’s completely virtual is that you have the ability and power to rush it along to get to the good stuff, but that defeats the purpose of the role play now doesn’t it?

I got this cool pose at the Saturday Sale, and it was really made for two female bodies so I had to do a little photoshop tweaking with the head pose to make it a little more friendly for my little family. Still, A+ pose and I love that Extra does a lot of family friendly stuff. I’ll be needing that in the future!

Eating for Two

It’s a pregnant Co Co! So things have been busy around here (besides me hahaha). I have taken on the role of Music Liaison and Spreadsheet Goddess AND Organizational Guru for Camping for a Cure for this Relay for Life Season, which kicks off February 20, so I’ve been getting everything ready for all of that. I’m also planning a super fun event for just the dirty minded adults for April. Freedom Rock is in March, so there is plenty to do and see. Don’t worry, I’ll have all the deets here and everywhere else as well.

Gotta keep my energy up through all of this, so here we are. Eating for two. And still shopping up a storm!

Oh, Deer!

This is the cutest little all-in-one scene from Moonflower. The deer has five different poses, and I dropped it down on my already converted winter wonderland sim and it fit right in! I love all the pretty flowers on the deer and I actually had trouble choosing which pose to do! This one looked best with the dress as you know how some sits can sometimes make them look wonky.

I’m loving all the winter / holiday creativity in the air. I’m getting cookie shipments in from all over, I sent mine out, and I am having a blast. I am keeping up hope I might even get to see my dad for the 7 fishes feast. We’ll see!

Cocoa for the Soul

Today’s the big day! Pose fair opens in second life, and you all get to see the amazing poses I’ve been fangirling over for a week or two now. Go there, buy everything, and get yo’ free gifts!

I put my hair back to purple in RL and I finally feel whole again. Had been experimenting with “normalish” colors for a month or so, then bleached it on Friday in preparation for this moment. I can’t tell you what a relief it is to finally be purple haired again.

Revving Up For Holidays

Santa Inc opened yesterday, and I swear with every Christmas event that opens I get more excited for the holidays. “You’re festive, Cori.” It’s just going to get EVEN MORE INTENSE as the days tick closer to the big day. Christmas is my favorite holiday and it shows.

That’s why I’m excited that most of the poses for the Pose Fair this time are holiday-centric. Even the ones that are a bit generic (as this one) can be dressed up for the holidays with a cute outfit and some Christmas decorations. Thank you for that, Rebel Poses!

Birdies Everywhere

I know it’s been a little bit since I posted last. Last weekend went on a holiday to a friend’s lake house, against better judgment probably, but considering the circumstances we were as careful as we could be and were still kind of isolated all weekend.

I’ve also started a new endeavor in SL with designing some clothing. Right now I’m using mesh templates and branching out slowly with tee shirts and what-not, but my goal is just to learn and get better until I’m doing my own stuff. I’m going to open a marketplace soon, but for now I’m trying to build up an inventory.

I didn’t put it in my credits, but this little bridge behind me on our land is the cutest! It’s from What Next? And absolutely adorable. It’s called “The Kissing Bridge” and has cute poses for you and your honey. anyway, enjoy!

Does It Matter?

It’s me again, Margaret.

Does anyone even remember that song or am I showing my ancient age again? Hah. Annnnnyway. . .

I’ve not kept up with this blog like I’ve really wanted. Between quarrantine, a virus scare, having a house full when I’m not used to it, an emergency move to Alabama, getting more heavily involved in WoW and putting my SL Music on hiatus, this has just gotten put on the back burner and when I think I want to do something, I have been lazy and unmotivated. I’m going to try to start to do better and actually start improving my photos.

I got this jacket at this week’s FLF and from there build a whole outfit around AsteroidBox. I really like their darker things, and get excited when they have some clothing out. I tend to buy their Sat Sale and even Kustom9 offerings when it fits my style, like this does. I’m kind of obsessed with this look, especially with the shorter hair. What do you think?

What Resolution?

I’m trying to lose weight in RL, y’all. I need a knee replacement and before they touch me I gotta lose a ton of weight. However . . . Having a house full the last couple of weeks has proven that to be difficult, because I like cooking for people and barely get to do that when it’s just me and baby man. So I’ve been splurging. Last night I made a bomb lasagna from scratch! Eating leftovers today. So, flipping through all the various food props I have in my inventory today, I decided to take one with this setup to demonstrate how I’m feeling right now, haha

Like I said in my last post I really am not a resolution maker, but I am trying to get some weight off to get my knee fixed. I’m not backsliding, I’m just stalling because I’m giving myself some time to enjoy life with rl. And that’s ok. So as far as my outfit goes, can I just point out how cute this top is? Sassy’s done it again. I love argyle and I have a soft spot for hers, for sure. She’s a genius and you should check out chic moda if you haven’t. Group join fees are super cheap and it’s totally worth it with free gifts nad lucky letters.

Pastimes

Welp, this post merges two of my favorite pastimes: Shopping and horse riding.

Collabor88 hit today which means my wallet is yelling pineapple at me all day long. Of course I get home and immediately start throwing things on, and the first was this adorable spring dress from Pixicat. It’s funny because I also loooove their fall offerings and that’s when it is officially fall for me – when I get into a Pixicat oversized sweater and leggings and boots. Then it’s time to change the leaves on the sim!

Besides shopping, horseback riding is a fairly new hobby of mine. I had the older water horse (before they went animesh) and looked into just upgrading that, but I went into the Teegle booth at the Fantasy Faire and fell in love with this demo. I got the pale sugar cookie version, but then Sinder from The Flying Pony linked this beautiful sunset skin for it and I was hooked. Now this horse matches my personality, my hair, and most of my clothing. When I’m not riding her I have this stable setup and it’s just wonderful! What do you think?
