Happy New Year!

Yes, so I know this post is a few days late, but I wanted to think long and hard on what some of my SL New Year’s Resolutions might be. I feel like I’ve accomplished a lot this year but, as always, there is room for improvement.

  1. Spend more time learning and applying new Photoshop techniques to some of my pictures. I typically use the most basic versions to crop and slightly enhance my images and the more detailed I decide to get in editing, the more I will branch out and use the newer and more complex versions. I’d also like to spend more time with my drawing pen, which I am really loving, but still fight with from time to time.
  2. Expand on the content of my blog. I blog a lot about fashion because, well, I love it. But, I would like to spend more time on covering decor, events and yes, even the controversial subjects in my posts.
  3. Finish decorating our home. I love landscaping and playing around with home decor. But much to Petey’s dismay, I can never seem to finish one design or theme before I get bored and then start in on another. We’ve been together five years now and I don’t think I’ve finished a project yet. Even our home at the Grove sits with three unfinished rooms. Oops.
  4. Become more active on Social Media. The opposite is usually true for most people in RL. We spend way too much time on our devices, engaged in internet frivolity. But for us bloggers, social media is a big deal and I have been sorely lacking. I know, I know- I’m sorry!
  5. Update my blog. I was so glad when I finally finished this a few days ago that I put it on my list just so I can cross it off. I’ve certainly been overdue for a new look, and I even changed the name!

I’d love to hear what all of you resolve to accomplish this 2018. Feel free to comment or link below so that I can read up on your New Year’s resolutions!

Christmas Miracle

I finally had some time to photoshop the pictures of a scene I’ve been playing with lately. I even made an attempt to use the drawing pen I bought forever ago- but never could figure out. What do you guys think? I won’t even mention how long I stared at the screen.

Oh, and did I mention all of the lovely goodies available for Christmas lately, including those at the Arcade, which is already halfway through its December round!

Merry [almost] Christmas!

Fight Song

So much is going on in this months round of events and new releases. Where to start? Genesis Lab has released both Keily, a new mesh head and Charlotte, a fresh and lovely skin that is available at Shiny Shabby. I am wearing them both here and though Keily on her own is stunning, I love the delicate arch of the brows that Charlotte offers.

Tetra has also released another new line of sexy lingerie for Uber, and I love it! The textures are fantastic and I am thrilled that the design again lends its hand to a more sporty structure, which just so happens to pair perfectly with some of the many new releases from the Arcade.

It seems like it has been forever since the Arcade was last here in June, but alas… it’s back! There are some totally great designers and themes this round, including much in the way of sports and even the much loved stuff for all the guys out there! The Arcade also has returned with two sims for cam-shopping, as well as exclusive player rewards for every 25 plays. Even better, the event runs through to September 30th, so you have plenty of time to play and trade for all of your faves!
