Golfing and Praying

So, last night was the kick off for our major RFL event that Camping for a Cure holds every year, Freedom Rock (Thrice). This year we are holding the festivities at the main ACS island. If you have time, search events for “Freedom Rock” and go see your favorite artist! I helped open up last night with my first performance in over a year, and it was amazing.

I bring this up because today’s post is of Shutter Up’s pose fair offering, and well, BB and Abi are amazing human beings who were there hyping everyone up last night. They also have poses for sale for charity at the event. Support these amazing humans everywhere, especially at pose fair! You can find this pose there right now.

Waiting On A Star To Fall

It’s my favorite time again – Pose Fair! It also coincides with an entire overhaul of our sim. I got rid of all the traces of winter, and we are going Arizona off Route 66 vibes. Drake has done an amazing job of getting the landscaping done, and I have put a magnificent house on the sim with big open spaces and plenty of fun room.

I love this structure and knew I wanted to feature it in my first pose fair pose, and well this one by Hopscotch really does the trick. Decided to do a whole mechanic outfit and I hope you like it!

When It Rains . . .

. . . it pours. No, really. And I know we’ve all been dealing with it. If you’re American with any heart at all, the last few days have been an emotional roller coaster of epic proportions. How do you process all that has happened in and to our country? It’s crazy.

I just got a brand new computer and this is the first photo I took and edited on it. What do you think? I kinda love it. This 3060 TI Graphics card is the iiiiiish mayne!

Well Hung

Well, here’s something I don’t normally do, at least not in the past, but I’m going to be doing more of. Complete decor shots! The Winter Wonderland Market started today, and Noveny made an absolutely adorable holiday decor set that fit amazingly into my tiny princess cottage that Drake had set up for me on the sim. Perfect since I had actually forgotten to get anything for it!

I added a few other accents here and there, but I have to say it all fits in perfect, down to the soft glow from the stockings that light up the entire area just enough! I can’t wait to see what else the market has in store for us! Click here to visit the market

Featuring:Noveny – Snowflake Clock, Christmas Tree Shelf, Christmas Stocking (1 & 5), Deer head (Winter Wonderland Market 12/2020)
Also: Hive flocked garland, Nutmeg stocking holders, Tarte Bottle Brush Trees.

Cookie Time

The Holidays are my favorite damn time of year. Starting in October and really just stretching on until Valentine’s Day. Most people tend to be sadder and more depressed during the fall and winter months, but I thrive and feel so much better. I love colder weather, I love the holiday tastes and smells, and I like the dark better than sunlight. All these things make for a happy Co Co.

The Anatines are doing a RL cookie exchange this year which I am taking part of, and decided to make a fun photo with SL Cori baking away. Hopefully you enjoy too!

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!

Anywhere With You

Recently, we decided to branch out and take over the entire sim when our neighbors disappeared. The other side was basically turned into a park / photo haven / dance area / fun place to play and ride our horses. It’s made for some amazing photo ops, and this piece by SamPoses fit in perfect in our park area.

I’ve been feeling cute and whimsy lately, which makes me glad there were plenty of Poses from the Pose Fair to fit my mood. Have you gone and gotten yours yet?

Into the Nebula

In the grand scheme of things, I’m having a pretty rough day. Lots of stupid little things have been piling up and making my attitude generally shit. Trying to shake it off, but it’s just one of those days. So, ignoring all my other bs going on, I went to make a photo. I loved this dress I just picked up at Kustom9 from one of my favorite cool costume designers (especially in the gacha world), Luas, so I went to Backdrop City and found something kawaii, neon and purple – and threw on my lumipro and went to work.

Doing photos is very theraputic, and here I am after the photo is done, feeling a little better. In the grand scheme of things life isn’t so bad, and I just need to work harder at not letting the little things get me down so much. It’s a daily struggle though because sometimes depression anda anxiety piles up to the point I just get overwhelmed. Thankfully I have my hobbies to immerse in until I feel better.

Enough about all that. The Epiphany opens at 10pm and I am PUMPED! I always spend too much at gachas but it’s so fun! And shopping is theraputic as well! So I hope to see you all there (but only after I get in! hah) and playing your favorite creator’s gacha!

Country Girl At Heart

Today was a lazy Sunday. It was Father’s Day in the real world, so did some of that festivities including the amazing NY strip steaks I cooked in the sous vide and seared in the cast iron skillet, homemade mac and cheese, and green beans that I threw down. The rest of the day was spent laughing at SL Secrets and landscaping the outside of our area. It’s absolutely perfect now, with little cuddle and photographic nooks, farm animals and structures, and a lazy river with a gorgeous bridge connecting two areas.

I managed to get some shopping done too! Between Belle, Summerfest, and the Saturday Sale, I managed to blow a lot this week. But holy crap I love the stuff I got!

I can’t believe on Wednesday my avatar will turn 15 years old. 15 crazy years in this virtual world, and then a few days after that I’ll be married in the virtual world. What a crazy few weeks it’s been. But I can’t remember when I’ve been so content in all my lives, happy, and worry free. It’s a good feeling. And now, without further ado . . . my credits!
