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!

Caribbean Heat

I don’t know what the rest of the world is like, but boy has it been hot! With Summer clearly in full swing weeks before the official start of the season, I am sure we are all feeling the heat one way or another. But hey, at least there are cute outfits in both RL and SL to help beat the heat.

Addams has released this new lace, bohemian inspired romper at the mainstore. It comes in like, a bazillion colors (forty mix and match w/ fatpack) and sleeve on/off options. It’s super cute, super cool and perfect for those long, and hot summer days!
