Gypsy Warmth and Thanks

By Starr – The Twinkle. Visit Gypsy Warmth and Thanks for original post.

This post is going to be a little more brief and less detailed than usual simply because I’m quite tired and there’s a lot I want to get done.

I sincerely hope that those of you who celebrate Thanksgiving or just enjoy the time to spend with your families that it was one filled with peace, love and togetherness.


If you went shopping, I hope you got some bargains. So much happened and I bought so much that I just don’t feel I can even cover it all. But I do hope all of you were able to snatch up some good second life bargains too. The best thing about shopping in sl is, you can do it sitting on your couch in your pjs.

gypsywarmth002The look that I’m featuring today includes some of the buys that I made over the weekend. Wasabi Pills had a sale on their Basics Packs, 100L for a pack of several essential tones including this blonde. This is the Marissa hair and though you can’t see it, it has lovely braids down the back and it comes with a hud to change the little bands on the braids. Gorgeous.

Neve also had a Black Friday sale, outfits half price and this is the Dreamer sweater and skirt dress in Meadow. Each outfit comes in a 3 pack of colors and there’s a hud which usually allows some mixing and matching. You can’t see it but I’m wearing the skirt part in a brown floral print, very autumnal in my opinion which has some green leaves that match the sweater.

Even though I bought several items during Skin Addiction’s Black Friday sale <3, I’m actually sporting a full price skin. I was gleeful to discover that League has released appliers for catwa and immediatelly snapped them right up. I was a long time fan of League’s system skins and I am much in love with Ella, the catwa head applier.

I’m wearing the medium skin tone and I also bought, of course, the body applier for my Lara as well as a set of matte lipsticks, which you can also see me wearing above. The head applier comes with brow options, eye makeup options and lipstick choices as well.

gypsywarmth001My photographs were taken in a really nice Gypsy Caravan by Angelic Designs. The animation is included as are a choice of a few others. It was on offer for 100L for Steals and Deals this week and I just loved it. It’s warm and rustic and inviting and just right. I’ve parked it on my sim as a wintery rest area 😀 *Please note, i can’t guarantee that the Caravan will stay on sale for long. Hurry!

Cosmetics –

Lashes appliers by Shiny Stuffs called Flutter

Nail appliers by Zoz called Cascade Fall Polish set to silver

All other cosmetics come with the skin applier above.

Staples that I wear pretty much constantly.

Catwa – Dyana head

Maitreya – Lara Body

Real Evil Industries – Ice Queen Rings, attached bracelets hidden via the hud

Swallow – Shiny Ears

AviGlam – Mesh Eyes, various – I’m wearing Celestial in Sapphire

After the jump a little personal info if you’re interested. if not, no problem.

There’s a lot going on in my real life, I know that’s the way it always seems to be… but it’s really true for me. I’m trying to organize some extra insurance because I’m preparing to have surgery to remove a number of fibroids and we don’t know if this may lead to further surgery or not. I am an anxious person and I do not like strangers around me and the whole process pretty much terrifies me. I find myself having crying fits and just… unable to focus as well. I don’t anticipate this will happen until after the first of the year but it does weigh heavily on my mind. It’s one reason I’m not getting as much blogging done as I would like. Thanks for reading and understanding.



470: Christmas Wishes and Thanks

Christmas Wishes

It’s really hard to believe this is my 3rd Merry Christmas post on AdoredSL. I am persistent you have to give me that. I never started this blog on a whim but it has grown and I love that it has. I am sure some days though Steel is tired of logging in and me saying Ooo Pose.

 I have been so lucky this last year, yeah shit happens but you know what you either walk with it or get bowled over.

Steel another Christmas approaches your love for me is amazing and without you this crazy world would not be the same, you keep me grounded and you have known me at my worst and know how to deal with it. Our Girls as much as there not here a lot right now they are part of us and as a family I love you all so much.
My big sissy Namrah it has been an eventful year huh, like sisters do we have our moments but even when we are angry we still know and say I love you (pokes a finger in your ear).

This year we found a mum Anderian (aka DarthVadar), I do not open up easily you have seen that but with you there is a natural at ease, whether it be good or bad I know I can be open with you, you inspire me as any good mum should and I count my blessings every day I think of how you answered that post on my timeline when we was hunting.
Ally you are such a bright light in my SL, I am lucky to have you, a sponsor. turned friend, turned someone who I count as much family as anyone,as for Dork Jake Dwyer Applewhyte I am so happy you have each other, love you both!

Yeah those above I class as the people who have given me so so much this year I am so very lucky to have even more wonderful people in my life. When you become part of the Rain family no matter what happens you are in it for life, those who know me know my heart is big, it doesn’t hate, even people who really hurt me have a place and know I will always be there should you need me.

My sponsors are awesome and without you this blog wouldn’t be what it is today so thanks one and all you rock!

Today has been a day of happy surprises. While I was grabbing all of the gifts I could find at  the We Love To Roleplay sim I found out that I was the number two blogger for the month of November at We Love To Blog! And not only that, I get to be apart of the January edition of Mode magazine! I feel very honored.I did not even realize I had blogged so much that month, I was just having fun showing off different things. I am definetly I clicker-aholic! Also this is my 100th post! Time sure has flown.

I picked out a few gems tonight and was going to do a whole Excalibur theme but I really didn’t like my pic after I looked at it for awhile. As I had said before I am learning how to do this green screen stuff. Everytime I try this my hair looks iffy. So instead tonight I decided to check out a truly beautiful sim called Winter Drift. I love this sim and probably continue doing photos there whenever my laptop is not being a grinch. Anyway here is my post for tonight..I do hope you like 🙂

This beautiful necklace & earrings set is an #144 Designer Circle exclusive from Indulge Temptation!

Reflections of Thanks..

By – BubblegumPop. Visit Reflections of Thanks.. for original post.

Today I am grateful. Grateful for my friends and family and grateful for my friends in SL. I am blessed with people who care about me and who, despite the miles that separate us, have stayed constant in their friendship. I am grateful for being alive and healthy, and for having the chance to start all over each day to make a difference in this world.  So often we are torn apart by our differences, instead of celebrating the commonalities we share. I hope you are all thankful for something wonderful in your life.. xoxo Tessy
