~I will always return~



Sometimes in the hectic of keeping deadlines and schedules both online and in real life, it's nice.. to just return to "home." I had the great privileged and honor of working for Dalriada Delwood as a blogger, then her manager. I never dreamed a friendship would form but I'm thrilled that it did. As a designer she creates some of the most adorable looks, as a friend she's always uplifting and has nice things to say about most everything in life. She has been a constant role model for me even when other things have been going on in the background. So when things changed for her and she decided to cut back events it was hard, but I knew that in time I would return to her items because she does do some events that I blog for. This blog entry is dedicated to an amazing designer and friend. Creator Dalriada Delwood of MOoH! Who brings to us not only a sexy outfit, but it's cute/adorable too! Fitting right along with her and her creations. Look for exciting new things with Dalriada as she has become a signature designer for -{ZOZ}- Clothing. I'm excited to see what these two great ladies have in store for all of their customers!




This is MOoH!'s XMas Velvet dress in blue. This outfit also comes in Red, and pink. Available at OMG Christmas Round 10 November 28th to December 12th 2014


 These boots are also part of the Xmas Velvet set but are sold separately at the event.

~When Christmas Comes to Town~

~When Christmas Comes to Town~

When I think about holidays, I think about the memories of being a child and wanting so desperately to begin decorating for Christmas. I was always ready RIGHT after Halloween to dig out the decorations but my parents always made us wait. Several days before Thanksgiving my siblings and I would dance around my dads feet begging him to start decorating, he'd usually drag out the lights and start the ever ending chore of adding lights to the house. When I was very young he'd take the tractor out and begin scoping out the fields for our tree. But still we'd have to wait.




Thanksgiving Day was always about Family. Ours coming together at Grandma's house which was always filled with love and warmth. My grandmother was such a great cook. Usually we'd spend Thanksgiving Day putting up her tree which only made us all that more excited to put ours up! Many times the day after, Mum and Daddy would wrap us up and load us onto the tractor and drive through the pastures of our farm looking for the perfect tree. My siblings and I would laugh and nudge each other trying to push someone off the back end, but we were always so excited to go chop down our own tree. Looking back, I know we did this because my parents couldn't afford to buy one but the memories we gained were priceless so I'm very thankful that we were very poor growing up.




The photo prop I am using is from Coming Soon Poses and Props and is the rare from their Gacha at the OMG Event (As of today 12/15/14 this gacha is still at the event.) I loved this because I could pose with my husband and we're decorating the tree together. Please know that the prop includes tree, fireplace in the background, the lab that's draped over my leg and the ornament.



I love this time of year and seeing what creators come up with. I am wearing a sweater by Aurora's Closet that is available at OMG Christmas Round 10, and is also now available in her main store.  There are a few different styles to chose from which I loved! I love clothes that I can mix and match with!


The last picture in this collage shows off the nail polish that I am wearing from Dark Passions. This polish is called Frosted Fantasy and can be found for 20% off at Totally Top Shelf, current theme is Winter Seelie and Unseelie Court which runs December 1st to December 24th. There are a lot of wonderful designers and creations at this event.

I really need to wear jewelry more often and Tantalum creator ღ Ŀսçì ღ (Lucinnnda) gives me the inspiration to want to wear jewelry more often! She has created this adorable set for the OMG room round. This jewelry is sold separately at the OMG Round 10 event.


  • Snowflake belly chain comes with a hud so you can change the colors of the metal and snowflake.
  •  Krizia Earrings this has a menu that allows you to change the texture and metals. 
  • Noel Bracelets- Also comes with a menu to change the texture and colors. I really loved the sparkle effect of the bracelets so you have a few options to choose from. Here's a picture to allow you to see some of your choices!




Please note: This event was to end Dec 12th, but has been extended until December 23rd. Sadly, this will be the last round of the OMG Room for awhile so hurry on over to see what's in store for you plus pick up your gifts that range from 0L to 10L (some might be more.)! I

This is a full view of what you get with this photo prop minus the puppy. :) The other animals/toys in the pictures above were gacha's from [FORMIS DESIGNE], (Creator Sandhy Lavendel) there's a cat which is rare, a bat, doll, snowman and another little creature. These are holdables but I rez'd them on the ground and moved them around the tree.

Everywhere around the globe people are preparing for the upcoming Holiday Season. It's been fun to visit different sims and see the many different outlooks on Christmas, winter and all the other good things that come out of the winter months. For some winter means inches of snow, for others like my Australian friends Allyson Dwyer and Kay Weston, they're preparing for their summer. But even though they're preparing for summer, they are creating winter wonderland goodies for all of us to keep in with the spirit of the season. Winter has descended on many states across the US. For me, I live in the Midwest and I'm ready for it to stay away a little bit longer. On Friday, Cedric and I begin the 9 hour trek from Kansas to Wisconsin to pick up my son for his college break. I'm hoping the weather continues to hold for us so the drive will be safe.

When I think of winter, and my youth I think of all the months as a child and we'd be buried in snow, thankfully we haven't had snow like that in years, but one of my favorite childhood memories is the coca cola bears. Remember them? They were so adorable, and I loved those commercials and sometimes they'd make me cry.. I'm a big commercial crier! So when I saw some of the new poses from Something New Poses and Props, the Kissing Panda screamed at me "Buy me buy me buy me." Of course, I had to blog it! It's so beautiful and adorable at the same time. How can that be you say? Well just check it out and you will see what I mean. Ally really created a mini winter wonderland with her Panda Kisses prop.


 The outfit I am wearing is by 2Chez! It's funny how whenever I'm sitting here contemplating what I want to wear for certain blog posts my sponsors will send something either a prop or clothes and I'm like "THAT IS IT! That is WHAT I NEED! The outfit is called Kirsten. This lovely outfit is only 199L it comes with arm warmers, top, skirt AND BOOTS!!! yes BOOTs!!!!! I love it so much. I feel like a sexy little snow bunny!




I bet you're wondering why I'm kissing a bear? Well it's because Cedric was unavailable to pose and this totally adorable pose/prop is new release from Something New Poses and props called Kissing Panda.(And yesssss our lovely Ally knows that the bear is a polar bear and NOT a panda but when you're creating as many wonderful things as she has been for all of us lately she's allowed to make a mistake! And we love her more for it!)

 You can get this great prop at a few different events around the grid, but well just go to her store and go up the stairs I PROMISE you will not be disappointed by her winter wonderland. Also as you head up the stairs, look for a star inside that star is a free gifty (okay so it might cost you 1L but it might also be free, but it's a GREAT prize either way you look at it.) BUT I'm not going to tell you what it is!

You fill my heart.. POE7

One of the most anticipated hunts of the year has begun! Peace on Earth hit the grid on December 1st and runs until Jan 6th. This is probably one of my most favored hunts of all times. When I came to second life, hunts were all I seemed to know how to do. I think I was hunting before I even knew how to edit my clothes. ~laughs~
http://peaceonearthsl.com/



This year for POE it was abit different with the original founder not currently on SL. I think it's amazing that friends of hers stepped in to make sure her legendary hunt continued. I think she'd be greatly pleased to know she is so well loved and respected.


The first item I'm going to share with you is POE7 #021 by Sassy! The gown is called Ripples and it's a lovely dress full of elegance, and flair.




The hunt has been on for 3 days and there are so many new and wonderful creators that have joined the hunt this year. I am thrilled to be an official blogger for the hunt and I hope to bring you lots and lots of the wonderful goodies that are in store for you. What's the best thing about this hunt? I think for me, one of the things I love is that it's a variety of things, it's also a hunt my husband can do with me and He'll also walk away with hunt prizes as many creators make dual gifts for men and women or they'll make something unisex. The quality of gifts is usually higher for POE then other hunts around the grid, and you get a variety instead of just clothes. You really just never know what's going to be in your box. Then there's the frenzy in unpacking them all. My first POE hunt was about 4 years ago when I began and I remember doing the hunt and going OMG! there are so many... so I was so proud of my accomplishment in finishing all 200+ stores!




The nail polish that I am wearing is NOT a POE gift, it's called Monsieur Snowflake which is by Dark Passions (Creator Bcreative Wilde Heart) that I picked up at the Thrift Shop that ended on November 30th, but I couldn't not showcase these fabulous looking nails and I am holding the globe that the hunt prizes are in.

Sneak Peek LRD Gossip Outfit Black



To all of my American Friends "Happy Belated Thanksgiving!!!!" Today I am bringing you another Sneak Peek preview from Linealrise Design or LRD. This outfit is called Gossip in black but it also comes in print. The Creator is LinealRise. As I've said in previous posts I love outfits that come with shoes, I do tend to mix and max but when a creator puts in shoes I admit it's less work for me having to decide out of my dozens (read that as hundreds) of shoes which one to pick.



I like this outfit also because it comes with a top changing hud, so you get 4 different looks all in one.




Overall,this outfit is sexy, and chic which would fit into most occasions.
