C'est la Mort

A good friend of mine passed away recently and while I've been trying to distract myself from thinking too much about it, today it kind of snuck up on me. I spent a little quiet time this morning at our graveyard, our little place of rest near our home. I thought of all the silly time we had spent together, his lame jokes I'd always laugh at whether they were funny or not, and his staple bomber jacket that I secretly thought he looked amazing in. I've been wearing mine the last couple of days. It's interesting how, even something in SL, can begin to take on new value.

Taking the time to really reflect on all of these things really helped me a lot today. While I know you hear it quite often in situations like these, please don't forget to appreciate the people in your life today. Let them know you care and let them know when they've made a difference in your life. Let them know you love them. None of us are guaranteed tomorrow.

I'll miss you David. ♥

Dear Emery

 Dear Emery,
You made this round of Collabor88 complete for me! 
Love & Smooches, 
    Moi! ♥ 

 Okay, really though.. I love this top and pant set Emery released for Collabor88. Seeing the ad, I almost passed it up. It was a gorgeous ad, don't get me wrong, just not my usual style. We all know how real the struggle to get into Collabor88 right after opening is though, so in true shopaholic fashion, I grabbed the demo while I could and was pleasantly surprised!
I especially love these pants! While they could be dressed up or's me we're talking about here... so immediately I saw them as the perfect lounge around the house pants. You know those yoga pants women wear day in and day out whether they do yoga or not? Yeah...these are my equivalent to those yoga pants! lol I'll probably live in them...they're just too comfy not to! The sweater is just as cozy and both the tops and pants come in different colors and patterns for mix and matching.

Coco & Junk

Fameshed opened it's new round today and while I usually have a little bit of patience to wait a couple days before fighting my way in...this time?...not so much! I spotted a few items that just had to be mine. This outfit and skybox are a couple of them. I've been shopping COCO for so long now and I can honestly say it's one of the very few stores that continue to impress me. So many stores have come and gone yet COCO has stuck to their vision and continue to create beautiful and unique clothing. A somewhat reoccurring feature of theirs is being able to tuck your hand in your pocket! I absolutely looove this! It feels so natural and really sets this coat apart from others out there. And the glove? It comes with your coat to keep your other hand cozy, warm and stylish as well! The tailored pants that go with this coat are just as awesome. I love the black coat with blue pants combination but there's lots of other colors to chose from as well that would make for a lot of fun mixing and matching! ♥

Now this skybox! junk. did an incredible job on it. It's the perfect size, enough room to move around yet not huge to where you'd need a ton of things (and prims!) to decorate it. I love the brick and included are two versions, one regular and the other shadow friendly. I already have some exciting, and secret, ideas of what I'll be using this for in the near future! ♥
