Meet My Friend Challenge – Caelan Hancroft

cae copy

Ok, from the first moment that I saw this challenge my friend Cae first came to mind. She is someone that I make it a point every day to say hi too because we are long past that awkward stage of omg.. should I or shouldn’t I IM this person? I just feel so comfortable with Cae, I can tell her anything and not be judged for it. She is one of my constants here.

She is a very kind and accepting person and I just always have felt really comfy with her which is a treasure in it self. Not only is she a brilliant creator of mesh jewelry at her store Cae she is also a blogger and a fabulous SL photographer all around this girl is fantastic and not only does she do all that she manages Gos/Gos Boutique and has contributed so many skins to the Skin Directory for the fantastic Gos Boutique shoes we all love.

She is an all around great person and friend to me and she goes out of her way for people on many occasions. There are many things that I admire about Caelan that I cannot put into words and tomorrow, July the 3rd is her birthday so this makes the “Meet My Friend Challenge” from Strawberry Singh even more extra special.

Meme Instructions: Pick a friend, any friend, (male or female) take a couple of pictures of (or with) them and ask them a series of questions for a fun and lively post.

Ok, this is where I asked her my own questions!

How long have you been in SL?

– It’ll be six years in December

What would you consider your style of clothing in SL?
– Simple and casual. I used to love dressing up but I haven’t done it in so long it takes me forever!

One item in SL that you could never do without?

– Just one? You’re going to laugh because this is a “me” answer, but I am in love with the inventory boxes I use for storing stuff. Boring, but it keeps me (and my junk) organized.

What do you do in SL?

– Aside from stand on a platform? I create mesh jewelry for my store, manage Gos Boutique, and do the occasional picture or blog post.

What is the craziest thing that you’ve ever done in SL?
– I haven’t really done anything crazy, but at times, I think the craziest thing was to stay.

Did you wear bling back in the day?
– I’m sure I did, but I don’t remember exactly. I probably repressed that memory. I definitely was guilty of wearing full-bright jewelry and clicky shoes.

Do you have a most regrettable SL fashion choice?
– There have been quite a few of them. Most have involved a fluffy ball gown or a review copy that I felt obligated to blog.

What do you think is the best part about SL?

– People here are so freaking creative! We all kind of take it for granted, but everything from the chair you’re sitting on, the shoes you’re walking in, your hair and skin… they’re all the product of someone’s creativity. This place hinges on that and it’s always amazed me.

What are five stores in SL that you’d recommend to a new player?

– Am I allowed to shamelessly plug my own store as one of the five? I kid. Narrowing it down to just five is really hard, but I would try to give a new person places to create a great av: Truth, Belleza, Maitreya, ColdLogic, and Gos.

If you had one piece of advice to offer a new player what would you say to them?
– Keep things fun and don’t get drawn into other people’s drama. We’re all guilty of it, but there’s nothing that sucks the fun out of this place more than that.

What was your first impression about me?

– My first impression of you was as a SLuicide Girl which prolly makes for a rather interesting first impression lol. I just remember thinking that you wrote really well and seemed like an interesting person. I didn’t meet you for real until a couple months after that, but I’m really happy that I did.

Hair – Wasabi Pills, Tanya, Chocolate
Skin – Glam Affair, Summer, Jamaica
Eyes – Ikon, Ascension Eyes, Glass
Top – ColdLogic, Shultz Top, Cream
Jewelry – Cae

Cheeky Pea at the Home Show!


Cheeky Pea has made some beautiful new furniture releases for the Home Show which is finally opened now! I’ve been showing teasers for a few days now but you can actually go check out these shiny new things here:


The neat thing about the chairs and couch is that you can tint them any color your heart desires, there is even a card letting you know how! I like this furniture a lot and it also has really cute sits and comes in either pg or adult. If you don’t know what the Home Show is you can check out the blog here:

The Lake House by Pixel Mode for the Home Show


I really love this Lake House set from Tya Fallingbridge of Pixel Mode has made a sweet little romantic spot for the lovers out there for The Home Show of SL which is opening tomorrow.

I love all of the little important details of her items and the bed and shower are fun to try as they have hot and realistic animations as well as cute posing sits too. The Lake house comes with a shower and bed and a little bit of extra space for you to fill with your own items too. This is one of my favorite items for the event so I hope that you give it a look tomorrow at the grand opening.





The Home show is tomorrow!


Do you have your calenders marked and your lindens uploaded for the The Home Show tomorrow? Yes? Good!

My two lovely daughters and I, little Miss Ryleigh and Syleee posed with me on this swing that will be available tomorrow for The Home Show from Floorplan. It comes in three colors and it has cute poses in it but for family posing purposes we used this adorable one from .click! called daughers.

The Home Show opens tomorrow and if you want more information about the people participating looking here:

Eva launches at Gos Boutique today at 12 SLT PM


Today, at about 12SLT PM Gospel Voom will release this new and beautiful shoe called “Eva”.

If you are not already a part of the Boutique group you may wish to join to stay tuned. I am wearing the shoe in black satin but these shoes also come in other colors such as champagne, red satin, black leather, gold, silver, white satin and red leather. To date, I think these are my favorite and definitely have allure and that certain sex appeal where your own skin is really the only accessory that you will need to make an impression.

The couch that I am using in this photo is from Mudhoney and will be at the Home Show on July 1st, stay tuned for that SLURL for that as it promises to be an amazing event.

The Home Show is coming!


The Home Show opens on July 1st and I was able to get a preview of it and there is so much exciting new home and garden stuff, it’s going to be amazing!


There are many brands that are participating and some of the brands in my photos here are Culprit (trunks-chairs-dresser), Trompe Loeil (chair I’m sitting on), Bazar (books, lamp and art), Beach Street (home sign), Organica (plants), and this cottage is by sanctuaire. For a good list with slurls of all of the participants check here:


I’m wearing the really cute dress from Miel that is a fat pack for only 50L today for FLF. Also, Magika is having a sale and everythign is half off! My flip flops are from Gos Boutique.

Appreciation – Kendal Sapphire


I’m on trial right now with the most amazing little girl named Ryleigh and she replurked a plurk that caught my eye. It was a challenge started by Edith Ogleby that can be found here:

There is a lot of people right now that I appreciate and as I’ve let go of some of the past demons that have haunted me I can see the light of new friendships and connections. One of my new friends that has come to me, well I appreciate her more than she might know.

Kendal is one of those rare and unexpected people that goodness just seems to radiate from. She is an amazing mother to her daughter Evie who is my god daughter and she will be/is an amazing god mother to Ryleigh. When I think about the connection that her and Evie have it just makes me smile. Also every time I see her in world her sense of style is just so pretty. We have plans this summer of dinners, and hanging out and I am feeling really optimistic about everything.

Anyhow, Kendal I think that you are really lovely and for more reasons than I can say I appreciate our friendship. Thank you for being you!

Strawberry Singh’s – What’s your digits? (Meme)


For the last few years, I’ve enjoyed taking part of Strawberry Singh’s Meme – What’s your Digits.. and so when I saw it come around again I had to take part! You can find the instructions on her blog post here that has all the information:

Now before I start, Let me just say that I don’t know much about proportion and stuff like that, I just kinda modded my shape to the Standard Sizing shape (Medium) because I wear a lot of mesh and it makes the clothing fit my avatar better and then moved around the other parts to my personal preference. I don’t know how well I did as far as that goes but I’m pretty happy with my shape.

Do you try and keep your avatar’s body proportionate and similar to the “average” proportions pictured above? – Well to make it easier on myself I go by Standard Sizing Medium because it just helps me fit clothing better and I like the look of it on my shape.

What do you dislike the most about the SL avatar mesh? – I don’t have any complaints but I wish that there was a size between each sizes sometimes of Standard Sizing but I realize how much extra work that would be for designers. The only other thing is that some designers make unwearable to me clothing because the SSM is much smaller than other peoples sizes sometimes.

Does it bother you when you see other avatars that are not proportionate at all? – Not really, but I don’t like the super wide hips and pouty mouth trend – but you know.. if it makes you happy do it! I don’t live your SL life, hehe.

Even though this is a virtual world and people can be anything they want to be, do you feel when they are in human form, they should try to keep their proportions close to average? Pfft, like I said if it makes you happy, do it! Your world – your imagination, right?

I am wearing a really cute “Angel” Headband from Lark which you need to check out at the Retreat here: Sienia Trevellion has a shop in world and (the dress form on the right is also made by her) and she makes a lot of eclectic and cool treasures, you should do yourself a favor and check out her shop here:

Most of the other things in the post are from the Arcade, which sadly will be closing soon for this round. My hair is from Truth and my pose is from Olive Juice at Summerfest 13′.

La Galleria – Patio Furniture


Pamela Galli of La Galleria released this very cute patio furniture recently and with a click you can check out the price and specifications on the marketplace, here This set has a variety of rezzable foods for either two or four people plus decoration and it’s all only 16 prims.

If you are admiring my little secret garden gate; that is a new release from Snowy Melody of *.emm shop. It’s so adorable and its very inexpensive and low in prims, check it out here It even comes with extra prims if you need it bigger *wink wink*.

Things That I enjoyed over the weekend – The Cosmetics Fair


Ah, Cosmetics Fair and new Truth hair how you made me happy!

Glam Affair really out did themselves for this event. Those lips! That eyeliner for Cleo made me an incredibly happy girl! There is a ton of great make up here but that was my favorite. This event runs until the 30th.. and if you need to spruce up your skin this is the perfect place!

Truth also released this Colbie hair this weekend and yes a photo was born. I got the inspiration to do this photo and try to follow some of the tutorials from Strawberry Singh, here: I will probably watch the video a few times, but isn’t she amazing?

My eyes are the Ascension eyes from Ikon that I picked up at Numberology which just ended but I’m sure Ikon will have this in his store quickly! This newer jewelry set from Mandala rocks my socks too! Have an amazing Monday!
