new year hope

happy new year, everybody!

new year hope

2017, man.. what a year. it had some good times, no doubt about it, but i dunno about y’all.. it really flipped us off on its way out. i for one am glad to let 2017 and everything that came with it, be behind me.

i am.. cautiously optimistic about 2018. i’m hopeful. i feel like you *have* to be hopeful, otherwise the tough times of the previous year just keep their hold on you into the next. and i want more than anything to have a fresh start, to have this year be better than the last, so i’m hopeful for now that the new year will bring good things to us.. all of us.

my girls && i are wishing everyone a happy, healthy, prosperous 2018. cheers to a new year and to new experiences, and be hopeful with us that 2018 will be better. ♥

first flurries

the holidays always make me nostalgic for second life. some of my best sl memories center around spending the holidays with my friends && family, exchanging gifts and exploring wintry sims and causing mayhem on sleds.. and taking lots and lots of pictures.

first flurries

yeah, i’ve still been rattling around on the grid all this time.. just not blogging. to say that i’ve had a hard 2017, especially the latter half, is putting it extremely mild. this year has been rough in my real life and i just needed a break from the blogging world to focus offline instead. i can’t exactly say i’m back at it again like i was, but i do get li’l nostalgic pangs for sl around the holidays.. and even though it’s been tough, i couldn’t let 2017 end without, y’know, saying hi again and stuff.

so hi. 🙂

explorer

it’s been a good minute since i took pics somewhere *other* than my sky platform. i think it’s just become wayyyy too easy to set up a scene in the sky, or use a backdrop prop (of which i now have a bajillion) that’s already done for me, and use that instead of gettin’ out there && exploring the grid.

so you know what i say to that? NOT TODAY!

explorer

me ‘n’ my three kittens actually teleported somewhere that wasn’t an event or sale and did some good, old fashioned sim hopping. i loved the scenery on this sim, with the pretty red rocks and river and greenery. it may not match my shiny-urban-camo look exactly, but that’s okay.. that’s just part of using someone else’s sim for picture taking. and honestly, it felt really nice to see something that wasn’t put together by my own derp decorating skills.. for that alone, it was totally worth it~

get ready with me

are you a fan of get ready with me videos on youtube? i sure am.. one of my favorites does these kinds of videos all the time (with guests that are very relevant to my interests) && i lovvveee watching them. i am no makeup guru, either in rl or in sl, but it makes me feel like i *am* getting ready with them..

so i figured i might do one myself, second life style!

get ready with me

it was the perfect excuse to use this glorious closet from reign‘s latest arcade gacha. i’m a big fan of scream queens && even did an ‘accidental’ chanel oberlin look a while back.. so when i saw this closet (along with the rest of the items in the gacha!), i about had a *fit*.

of course, i’m wearing bits ‘n’ bobs from the reign gacha, as well as a super cute new hairstyle from truth out @ uber that you can wear with or without the hat accessory, as well as some candydoll goodies from whore couture && an older little bones animated makeup gacha item to really tie the get ready with me vibe all together!
