That Fall Nip

In real life, I live in Alabama, which takes forever to get real cold. It’s just now getting down to chilly temps in the evening and at night, but still in the upper 70s during the day. It was hot enough during the day today to make the metal on our door burn our hands. Was definitely nice lawn mowing weather though! This coming week, however, it’s getting lower which means I’ll have a nice pot of chili on mid week and enjoy that to its fullest. Soup just tastes better in colder weather.

We still have yet to turn our sim into fall, which at this point I think we’ll just skip that and go straight to snow. I will take down the apple area when it happens, so I wanted to get in a photo or two while it was still there. (Not pictured: The white jian Saturday Sale turkeys running around a bit further out of the shot)

What’s your favorite part about fall? Mine is the holidays that start and pumpkin EVERYTHING!

A Sorta Fairytale

The weekend has came and went, just as quickly as it started. I was so busy that I realized I didn’t even check out Fifty Linden Fridays this week!! Thankfully I remembered myself and got in for Saturday Sale so I could pick up this amazing turtleneck dress just in time for fall!

Pose Fair is winding down, and this is my last pose fair post for this round. I saved one of the best for last, in one of my favorite new places – our fairy tale part of our sim!

Kiss Me Before You Go

I love a good, romantic rainy scene. Meli-Melo really brought it with this amazing pose, umbrella included. This bridge set up at our house lent for the perfect backdrop for an amazing photo that I actually got to take with Drake as our schedules aligned!!

Decided to showcase a dress I found and loved from Saturday Sale this week and thought it looked great. Hope you enjoy too! Happy Monday!

My Confused Face

Let me tell you that I feel absolutely blessed to be able to blog for Pose Fair. The staff is amazing, and our blogger manager is super attentive and if it wasn’t for him I might not be able to remember deadlines. Thank goodness for awesome people! That being said, the creators really brought it this round! I hadn’t been able to get much time with Drake in-world, so some of the couples poses I haven’t gotten to hit yet (though I’m looking SO forward to it) but there were enough solo style poses to keep me busy and keep the posts flowing.

Today was also Collabor88, which means yup! New hair! (I bought a cute banana dick pic shirt from Tres Blah too, but that’ll be for another post). Foxy’s new little mini braids hairstyle is amazing. The fit for Lelu Evo is right on point too. Kudos to miss Liza!

Have you ever gotten an update redelivery from somewhere (like when a creator adds a new body or something) and it’s like rediscovering an old friend? That’s what happened with these shorts the other day. Cynful did a great job and I am happy to have re-found them!

Vitamin Me

I am getting overrun and overwhelmed with life, so I’ve been taking a little time to get adjusted to everything. Kid’s been in school a few weeks now and we finally have a schedule hammered out. So far, so good! And just like that, Pose Fair is upon us again. I have seen so many amazing awesome ones (and a lot of cute couple ones) but this one caught my eye.

The best part about this one? It’s a FREE GIFT From Pose Fair. R Bento really knocked this one out of the park. And the sign is so adorbs. I sent it to Drake cause we’d been missing each other and he agreed. He needs some Vitamin ME!

Am I Tamable?

This is a crazy time. School is starting (cautiously), I am going back to work, and lots of changes are happening. I’m having to re-figure out time management which means finding more time to do these fun things as well as other fun things I like (ie WoW, where AQ gates have just opened like it’s 2004 or something. Gotta love Classic!). I’ve gotten into crochet as well and am working on my first blanket. It’s time consuming but fun!

What I have found time to do though is keep up with my shopping, and this CK outfit I saw on Facebook and was beating down the door at Cosmopolitan to get to haha. It paired perfectly with these boots and this awesome hair with a beret, so I decided that Cori looked so badass she needed this backdrop.

I will say the up close glow of the neon is kind of hard to deal with and shoot with ultra settings, even in black dragon, so I need some practice with that. As always, pointers are welcome ♥

Bring Me Flowers

What a week it’s been. This week we had to make the decision whether to send little nugget to preschool or keep him home. Ultimately, we got our questions answered by the facility and with the precautions they are taking plus the ones we are taking, we are going to try it for now. School starts August 12 and he is beyond excited for it.

The other day, Drake and I had a good, long talk and worked out some misunderstandings we had. I felt super confident and optimistic about the future, and then the next day he surprises me with an early birthday present – the Legacy body and a Mila skin for it (that’s out at Cosmopolitan right now)! I used the day of setup to also unpack and fix up my Lelutka Evo Nova 2.0 update which I absolutely love, and now I am over the moon.

It’s funny because I actually wanted to try the Legacy body, but was too lazy and noncommittal to ever get it going. Now? I have it, and I’m kind of in love with it. but if I wanna wear something in my Maitreya collection, I still have that body too, and my skin and everything works the same with it. So all in all, happiness.

Angel With An Attitude

I was up late and left to my own devices last night, so this picture was born. I also managed to cam shop at Kustom9 because I wanted the new Foxy hair, then that led me down a shopping rabbit hole because apparently I’d managed to not pick up this hair from Truth? How did I miss that? IDK.

I was feeling a little eDgY so here I am in this Asteroidbox ensemble. The jacket (with tank) is out at Kustom9 now, and the skirt is from forever ago. It was either Sat Sale or a K9 from some point in the past.

I then left myself logged in all night by accident. This is the second time in a long time I’ve done that. I really need to watch myself. but that’s probably teh case if you see me on before 10am slt haha.

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!

Everything Is

Life is fair – it’s just a matter of perception. This is on the sign in the bus stop backdrop I used for this particular shoot, and it’s been running through my mind since I dropped it out there. That is a really good thing to keep in mind, especially in today’s climate. If it looks fair to you, then you have a good perception of things. Maybe change your perception and see how it might not be fair for someone else. And vice versa . . .

I hope you all are staying safe, healthy and happy out there. The next post I do will be talking about the event of my SLife, my SL wedding this past weekend. It was beautiful, hilarious, magical and crazy all rolled up into one, and that perfectly describes my life with Drake.

I happened upon this dress (and the shop it comes from) From Rae’s Blog, Little Salty and you should go follow her. She did a cute shoot with his and hers shirts and I had to have them, and well I just kept shopping. This dress was out in prints pack still from the Saturday Sale and I had to have it as well as a few other things. I immediately told her that her blog post made me find them too. We love to hear that, so if I ever inspire you to shop, please let me know!

BTW, I used two of my alts in the background there but they were so far away and part of the background, I did not take the time to detail what they are wearing.
