I thought I’d squeeze in one last blog for the 2012 year, to give a big grand recap of my year…blah blah blah. But then I realized I don’t really want to think much about this past year. Lets leave it all there and move on, so much freedom in that, isn’t there?
So I’m wishing you all the freedom to move into 2013, leaving all that weighs you down behind. There is a whole new year ahead of you full of wonderful things I hope – try something new, make new friends, be happier, tell someone you love them, etc etc.
If I wasn’t going out in RL this year, I’d certainly be wearing this gorgeous look I’ve put together. There are a ton of new dress and gowns available for this special evening, but sometimes you want to stand out from the crowd! <3
Doesn’t Sophia look great in orange?? I think in this skin/tone she looks amazing in orange.
Anyway… We both loved these fantastic new jackets so we decided to blog them together. I love blogging with Soph, she and I have similar yet different tastes and whenever we wear the same item it is interesting to see how the styling turns out for each of us.
Oh and one more thing…How amazing is this big hair I just bought?? Love.
Culture Shock is one of my fave events brought to us by Chic Management, and I got to sneak in a little early to shop. This year mon tissu and celoe will be participating, which if you don’t already know means they each have a new and exclusive item out at the event. Each and every other store participating in the event also has a new & exclusive item as well. There are items clearly labeled in each store that a portion (or all in some cases) of the proceeds will go to benefit Doctors Without Borders.
The jumpsuit, bag and scarf I am wearing can all be found at Culture Shock as well as this pose that I am using….
I’ve been dying to use this hair, and I thought I really needed some sort of on location outdoor/spring scene. So, I hopped over to Koinup Places and found this amazing place Calendon Victorian Garden. There are lovely buildings to explore in addition to the gardens which are amazing and include statues, water features, etc. I highly recommend paying a visit! Thanks again to Koinup for helping me explore all that SL has to offer
The Culture Shock event opens May 4th and runs through May 26th, you won’t want to miss it!

As soon as I spoke with Cajsa about participating in the Donna Flora Project I knew which piece of Squinternet’s jewelry I was going to wear. It was really a no brainer for me, I wear this piece in nearly every blog post, and it is hands down my favorite ring.
So thank you for all the gorgeous creations you’ve spent your time on Squinternet, and for giving me reason to enjoy my SL that much more with pretties to adorn my avatar in. I am sure you realize we are all thinking of you, and wishing you a speedy recovery! <3
Meanwhile, I was given a reason to get off my booty and blog, so while I was at it I decided to hit the KoinUp Places and find a fantastic new location to photograph at. D-Lab (6pi) is a place you can probably spend your entire day playing, being young at heart and enjoying the amazing build. The store is packed with great stuff to buy (tons of which you can find around the sim to interact with). I found myself just hoping from one thing to the next and seeing what sort of cute sit was in it. SO much fun, definitely bring a friend! Thanks to KoinUp for another good find!
I’m not opposed to Valentine’s Day. I don’t cringe at the thought of it, I don’t think there is anything wrong with wanting to spend a day showing someone who you care for that they are special.
Despite all that I don’t think you need a designated day for it, if you love someone you should tell them as often as you feel it. Who knows how long they will be in your life, and you should never have any regrets!
So Happy Valentines Day to all those who are sharing it with someone, and if you don’t have a special someone to share with, do something special for yourself, you’re worth it! <3
