Summer Fever

I’ve been sick with shingles and so I’m not going to write much… but I wanted to share some things with you all!

I’m wearing lingerie by Gos (a recent Uber release that should be in the Mainstore soon), with gorgeous shoes that match and can be found at FaMESHed through the 27th.

My alt is wearing hair I snagged her at the Wasabi Pills summer sale which ends tomorrow (the 24th) so be sure to head over to grab some gorgeous hair at a great price!

Summer Fever

We’re both wearing LAQ heads. Mine is a newer release – Sandy – and I’m also wearing eyes Conviction’s Lucent available from Lookbook. I’ve added the SONG Cutie Liptints to my look, which is also a Lookbook release. Lorelai and I are both wearing e.marie nails. Mine are the Lookbook release.

I got the boy…

The two pics in this post were inspired by Jana Kramer’s song “I Got The Boy.” I have had the idea for this post literally since the first time I heard this song… and it came out in 2015, so it’s been a long time in the making. You can read the lyrics (and I’ll add the video below, which may not work depending on where you live due to streaming rights). But the gist of it is, a woman sees her first love’s wedding pic in the paper… and she gets very nostalgic.

I decided to use my malt and one of my alts to do this. My malt is in the same skin/body/head for both shots, but with the help of some different hair and a beard, he’s “grown up” a bit in the wedding pic.

I got the boy (which for some reason I did with my alt, so really “I” got the man lol).

I got the boy

She got the man.

In this look, I am wearing Pink Fuel’s gorgeous LeLutka applier for Lookbook. I also have on one of Izzie’s Natural Glosses for Lookbook and my eyes are LeLutka appliers, also a Lookbook release, from Avi Glam. Izzie’s and Avi Glam also included Omega and Catwa appliers. You can grab the free HUD to shop from on Marketplace or you can pick one up in world at Lookbook HQ. Lookbook HUDs update on the 27th of every month.

She got the man

The song that inspired it all.

Dawn at the Boho Cafe

When I saw Death Row Design’s new release for Uber, I knew I had to have it for my sim. It’s so cute and I love anything with a boho vibe. I bought the entire set and have no regrets! I wanted to make it look cheerful and spring-y outside, so I used some of Little Branch’s gorgeous new tree releases. The big Poplar tree behind the cafe was at an event but should soon be in the Mainstore. To the right (your right) is one of Little Branch’s Lime trees, which you will find at The Clique through April 4th. On the left is a Fig tree, also by Little Branch, and currently available at Shiny Shabby! All three trees are animated and season change, plus they include grass (as seen in the picture by the trees).

Dawn at the Boho Cafe

To those celebrating, Happy Easter and Happy Passover!

Woodland Friends

Wow, so I’ve had a wild few weeks. I was waiting on insurance approval for surgery but it was expected to take a month or longer, and it was also expected that it would initially be denied and we’d have to submit more documents to get it approved. Instead, they approved it in 5 days and I was given about a week’s notice that I was having surgery! I’m fine, recovering well so far and will be more active again once I’m fully healed.

Even though I’m still recovering, I did want to do a quick spring post because it’s been gloriously warm here in Colorado (frankly, too warm and too dry for this early, but I’m gonna just enjoy it and hope for spring snow!). I created a scene on my sim with some of JIAN‘s adorable little critters, gorgeous flowers and trees from Little Branch and of course, my houses from Trompe Loeil.

Woodland Friends

More from me soon!

Chinese and Chill

Everyone loves the whole “Netflix and Chill” idea but I was inspired to do a Chinese and Chill shoot when I saw the adorable take out gacha set from Lost Junction that is available at Gacha Garden through February 28th! Not only is this set super cute as decor, but each item also dispenses wearable food. My alt Lorelai is wearing one of the donuts from the Seeds of Inspiration gift of donuts that you get with every 20 pulls of the machine.

I’m wearing the Prove lingerie from Neve, which has both sheer and modest versions (I went for the modest so I didn’t have to make the Flickr rating PG). My alt is wearing le fil casse’s Entrapment bodysuit in Rose Gold. This color is a gift you can grab at Linden Lab’s Shop Your Heart Out event through February 26th!

The gorgeous bedroom set we’re sitting in front of is from Cheeky Pea and can be found at the current round of faMESHed. This is the Pascale set and I love the dreamy, pastel watercolor effect this set has. It still feels wintry but with the hope of spring to come. It’s romantic and seemed perfect for this little set up.

Chinese & Chill

I’m wearing Pink Fuel’s gorgeous, limited edition skin tone version of the popular Adeline applier. This tone is called Fawn and I really love it. These can be found at Collabor88 during the current round (through March 5th). My necklace is another Gacha Garden item, from Cae. This is the SOI gift you get for every 20 pulls, which also includes earrings (not seen here).

Fierce Competition

The Olympics are coming and I adore them. My pal Brennan from These Conversations Kill was kind enough to gift me these fabulous Nantra skating poses and I was inspired. I have to say I am really impressed by the poses in this collection (which is called Going for Gold). They convey movement so beautifully, which is hard to do in a static pose! You get a stand, there are 8 poses (with mirrors, so 16 total) and there’s even a shape included (I am not using it, but it could be handy if you run into compatibility issues with your shape!).

Ferocity

My top is by Decoy and is part of the Alyssa gacha at the current round of The Epiphany, which runs until February 12th.

Practice makes perfect

Since I have the remnants of the flu and the bronchitis it left in its wake, I’m keeping this one short. Full credits below!

New Year’s Heartbreak

I took these pics on New Year’s Day. I was feeling a bit down, so I decided to do a blue sort of scene, with a play on words… “Happy Blue Year.” For a lot of reasons, New Year’s is tough for me, but it was more than the usual this year. I just felt in my gut entering 2018 that our beloved pup was unlikely to make it to 2019. He was diagnosed with a heart condition late last summer and the truth is, at one point I didn’t even think we’d get one last autumn and holiday season with him. But we did… and yet, I knew it was probably the last. I did my best to make the most of it.

Unfortunately, I had no idea how right my gut was. His condition took a sudden turn for the worse and Thursday morning we had to say goodbye. We’re heartbroken. I’m shattered and utterly devastated. I don’t know how to do this… to live without my baby here. I know time will help me figure it out but I also know I’ll never be the same. Having to say goodbye was brutal… the coming weeks, months, year will be brutal, too. But never having had him would’ve been worse. He made more than a quarter of my life brighter and better. I’m forever changed by having had him in my life.

I don’t have it in me to do a lot more than explain this, share my pics and list credits. But I wanted to get this posted before it got any further into 2018.

Happy Blue Year

hold on to the memories, they will hold on to you

And I made a collage of our baby, which I also wanted to share here.

Our beloved Flashdog

And on a final note, a song that’s been helping me cope a bit, particularly the quote “hold on to the memories, they’ll hold on to you,” which happens to be the title of the headshot. It appropriately came on the radio as we drove home from the vet Thursday morning, and while I sobbed through it, it was also cathartic somehow. Music is magic for me, so I am using it to get through this, as much as I am able.
