So, it dawned on me a few days ago that my blog must be nearly One.Whole.Year old. I was wrong. It’s already past that milestone! I wrote my first post on May 3, 2012! I can’t believe it’s already been a year. I’ll be honest. When I started this project, I really didn’t expect to last more than a couple of months. I figured I’d get bored. On the contrary, I love it far, far more than I could ever have imagined. I get to be creative in ways that were never really options for me before SL, and I really just enjoy it so much!
I’m not the only one celebrating… FaMESHed just marked its first birthday, too! I was about as shocked by that as I was to realize my blog had turned one! It’s like the year just blew past us. I guess it’s true what they say about time and having fun!
So, to celebrate these occasions, I donned some of the awesome items available at FaMESHed’s birthday round. Definitely check it out before it ends… there’s so much awesome to be had! I love the SySy maxi dresses. There are a ton of color options, including darker colors, but I opted for this pretty pastel lavender shade. I had to use one of the Cupcake poses Embody released recently, because our store is celebrating a birthday, too! It’s been three years since we opened, and I’m kind of flabbergasted by that. My tiara is also a FaMESHed item, from Maxi Gossamer. The gorgeous curls I’m wearing are courtesy of Alice Project, also for FaMESHed’s birthday. I love curls, so this was a must have hair as soon as I saw it.
Recently, I indulged and bought SLink hands and feet. With the new appliers and nail huds all over my Flickr stream and on the feeds, it was too tempting to resist. I hadn’t previously bought them because I found them tricky to tint. Which was odd because I’ve worn plenty of SLink in the past and never had issues. But then again, in those days I wasn’t changing skins like four times a week, either. So I had to tint once, not every time I changed. #problemsofaskinaddict
Anyway, I love the SLink hands and am having a lot of fun with my nails. I also LOVE the Cae jewelry set for FaMESHed, and I wanted to show that (and the nails) off, and this pose from E9 was perfect for doing so! Oh, and on my left hand is a ring from Exquisite. Years ago, when Rad & I decided to get married in SL on our 5th RL wedding anniversary, he gave me a ring. Like two years ago I deleted it. I happened to mention to him recently that I still was bummed about this, and he went out and bought me a new ring. The side stones are texture change (this is the tanzanite option) and I love the ring – and my husband – so much!
