Real New Yorkers

Hey guys! Recently I read Time Out New York’s article on “Eight ways to tell a real New Yorker from a fake New Yorker“. It was published in 2016, but it was recently re-posted on Facebook. People chimed in down in the comments – I’ll post my 2 cents here 🙂

Sisters In SL – Roller Skating!

Hey guys! I decided to do a quick post on this because I had a lot of fun on Saturday afternoon. I actually wanted to plan a roller skating party last year but right after I made the reservation my aunt had passed away…so had to make plans to go out of town.

I met a lot of people that afternoon, including the CEO and management team. It was awesome ^^

LaVian brings fashionistas together

Hey guys! I hope you have been checking out the SL13B celebrations! Most of the events are over, but there are plenty of things to see. You can check here, here,  and here to see where you can go.

On Sunday, I had the opportunity to see the owner of LaVian, Samantha S Jones, speak at the SL13B Auditorium with the hostess Saffia Widdershins. It was interesting to learn that Samantha went from participating in culinary arts in real life to becoming a designer on a virtual platform. My friend Khitt also was in attendance, and we both enjoyed the opportunity to hear from a prominent SL designer. The audience was even treated with a  mini fashion show, and a gift bag of items from the Spring 2016 collection.

What was coincidental about this was that two weeks ago, Khitt and I had taken pictures with us wearing LaVian dresses. Since I am slow, it took me a while to edit the photo. But now I see I was just waiting for the right opportunity ^^

A closet full of clothes but nothing to wear

Hey guys! The 2016 Home and Garden Expo is now open! You can check out my previous post to learn more about the expo, slurls to all of the sims, and now I have slurls to all of the preview items that I showed before. Plus I added a few more stores that I missed ^^

This set up was done in the home that Spargel & Shine has out currently at the H&G Expo – called Bocas Belle. If you would like to see a photo of the exterior, you can look at my previous post, linked at the beginning of this post.

Hey guys! Who’s staying up to see the new year come in? Are you going to any parties? I am staying in this year, but that doesn’t mean that I can’t get dressed up, right?

I hope 2014 was a great year for you all, and that 2015 will be an even better year.

See you next year!

Notting Hill

Notting Hill Villages

I was going to make this a purely Look of the Day post, but then I saw on Flickr this cool location. Since fall is my favorite season, I am always on the lookout for places that are decorated for the season. You can find more about Notting Hill on this post that Elvira made. I will add that you will probably have one more day to visit, if I did my math correctly ^^

When I arrived, it took a bit to rez because of all of the detail on the sim. I loved all the colorful trees and the leaves on the ground, as well as the little areas such as the bike stand and apple stand. The only thing is, I think you would need a computer with superior graphics to truly appreciate the sim. When I got inside the gates, I couldn’t really walk. Riding around for some reason was easier, especially when I dropped my draw distance all the way down.

I started off using the region setting of the sim, but then when I got inside, it seemed too dark. That’s why the lighting seems different in each picture. Overall, I think it’s a great sim, and the lucky people who get to reside there will certainly have fun in Notting Hill!

On the Road Again

 

Hey guys! I have to admit that I have felt pretty burned out and uninspired this past week. Don’t get me wrong – uninspired doesn’t mean that I haven’t liked any of the wonderful things that are out on the grid. More like…too much of a good thing is not such a good thing. There are so many events, sales, and new releases lately that it’s hard to keep up. And in cases like Collabor88 this month, near impossible to get in.
