Sweet friendships always refreshes the soul

Morning and Happy Friday!! I hope your weekend is off to a good start and while I have somewhat of a busy one with things I have to get done I’m looking forward to mine.

Today’s post is a collaboration with fellow blogger and someone I now call friend, Jules, who has her own blog at Sunshine & Sparkles.  It’s an appropriate name for her, as her personality is all sunshine and sparkles and I really like that about her. Plus she shares my sun sign of Aries, with our birthdays just days apart, so we’re finding that we have a lot in common including our feisty nature.  I think she has more patience than me and might not be as stubborn as I can be at times.  I know that’s hard to believe, but alas it’s true as much as I hate to admit it.  I do try to reign it in, because it’s not really endearing qualities to have.

Anyways, check out credits below for the amazing stuff we’re showing and as soon as Jules posts I’ll link up her blog once again here.

Have a fabulous rest of the day!

Special moments

I had another post planned for today, but then I realized that 6th Republic is going to end in just another four days and I wanted to get this post in and not leave it to last minute.  If you haven’t been you’re missing out on some great stuff.

Besides items from 6th Republic I am also showing some fashion items from a few individual creators participating in other events as well, including this raven wall decor that you can grab only today at a bargain for Hello Tuesday.

Until next time.

One more

One day closer to the weekend seems to be the best day.  It’s also a holiday weekend too. I don’t have any Easter plans as of now, but I’m really looking forward to relaxing if nothing else. I’ve got lots of boxes to open up from a couple of events that I blog for, so that’s part of the no plans.  Maybe I’m going to go distract fellow blogger Exis, good friend since we’ve met in-world and fabulous dancer too, because I’ve been away and by now she’s missed me. Chuckles.

The lovely dress,  hair and necklace and hanging wicker ball decor is what I am featuring today, so look for all the details below.

Have a great Thursday!

Far from home, but closer than ever

It’s a lovely Tuesday morning, despite it being 81°F outdoors and if you add the humidity on top of that it’s pretty uncomfortable for someone who isn’t used to the heat. I’m used to it. Preferably indoors with air condition and a refreshing drink. That reminds me that I have a mango to slice into later on.

Today I’m showing fashion from two events that opened up in the last days, On9 and The Liaison Collaborative.  Both great events that have a mixture of fashion, decor and poses and lots more, so make sure to go check them out.

Have a fabulous Tuesday!

Your teddy bear…

I’m not sure where I got the energy after a long day of travel to go to a local play where the story centered on middle aged people who all had a story. The main characters was a couple who met just after college and then their lives went in different directions.  He’s now a divorced man who was used to a certain way of life and bit bound in tradition.  He was overly polite too and lived life believing something would eventually happen to him, so that he really lived a rather lifeless life in the grips of depression. The woman was 4 times divorced, twice with the same man who had been abusive at least once.

They meet again after 30 years rediscovering themselves and each other as other characters are introduced throughout giving tidbits of practical insight and advice. It was a good play, though a bit confusing to know where it was going until the end where they both decide not to take the second chance they were given. She decides to return to her life of turmoil and he decides not to take the chance and go after her. That’s what I walked away with. It’s really up to you whether you can change or not. The next phase of your life is really in your hands. The possibilities that life holds are there if only you choose to pursue them.

I’ll leave you with that wisdom for a Monday, but make sure you check out all the wonderful things I’m showcasing today and peruse credits.

Let’s stay home today

Happy Saturday everyone. I am literally going to stay home most of the day as I have to pack for a short trip away from tomorrow until Thursday.  I am taking a laptop so I’ll get to post as I normally do and be able to log in to SL.  Though I really dislike using a laptop for getting things done in-world so I’m taking advantage of a free day today to get a good portion of my pictures done so all I have to do is fix up credits and post and upload them into flickr.

Today I’m wearing a relatively new hairstyle by Tetra, as it was a previous release at the last round of Uber and can now be found at the main store.  It’s a gorgeous hair that comes in 2 sizes: fitted and unrigged, which means you can resize and reposition the hair as you like.  The top and shorts are new as well and both from recently closed events, so these too can be found at their respective main stores listed in credits. I’ve blogged these shoes before though they’re quite lovely to use over and over again. They’re called Waterlily and are by Empire and still at the N21 event that goes on for a few more days.

The decor I’m featuring is the lounger, which is by Shutter Field in collaboration with Decor Junction.  It’s available in a dark and light version and it’s at the Crossroads event. I must point out that the pose I’m using is my own created specifically to show off the shoes, so it’s not part of the lounger. The other item there as well is the organic rust vases by Merak, which I think can work in just about any decorating style you may choose.

Enjoy the rest of this beautiful day!
