Look #2018110

One last look @ Designer Showcase and DE.Boutique. This busy month is almost over. Visit DS before Nov 30 to find these EXCLUSIVE bargains and much more... 

As always, the textures on the items from DE are excellent. Everything from flannel plaids to flower prints are on the hud. I wanted just a hint more contrast near my face and found the perfect solution in the Entice booth next to the DE one. Blue Jeans Scarf is just the thing!

[QE] Cyber Monday

After the madness of Black Friday comes the calm of the Saturday Sale and [QE] Designs Lazy Day Hoodie. This cute, casual hoodie with five lazy messages will be available at the sale price till the next Saturday, so you can pick it up any time this week, but I would suggest you get over to the Main Store before the 26th because everything in the store is 50% off and gift cards are 25% off!
In addition, you get 10% store credit with all vendor purchases. You really can't find better prices than this!

Black Friday

Black Friday in RL can be a nightmare. It can be that way in SL as well if you don't plan ahead. 

1. Decide what shops you really want to visit and make sure your LMs are current for them. 
You might even go so far as to locate the items you must have and make a LM for them. 
At least have a good idea where they are located in the store so you don't have to wander around looking for that particular thing you saw during that hunt...

2. Travel light. That means no extra huds or kissers or anything that is likely to be highly scripted or laggy. 
I can't tell you how many times I've experienced someone in a really elaborate outfit, big hair and dragging around a dozen pets pitching a fit about a sim being laggy. 
You wouldn't wear an evening gown to shop or ride your horse inside the store in RL. 
Take a hint!

3. Bring your sense of humor and your patience. No sense getting worked up over tech issues or lag. It doesn't make them go away. Learn to laugh at all of us trying to get around with our clothes in our hands and our brains showing. It's much more fun than RL!

When you get tired of trying to push your way around the big box stores,  I suggest a trip to DE.Boutique. You've seen the name at some of the best sales events, but if you haven't visited the main store, you've missed a lot! There are nice outfits and footwear that will be perfect for the upcoming holiday season. You can take care of your gift buying needs by taking advantage of the gift cards on sale for 50% off during Black Friday. 
I'm wearing Iris in Black, red, and gray with Astrid shoes. The top and pants have separate huds so you can mix and match. Shoes sold separately.

My nails are Honeymoon from Mani Pedi .

It's almost Thanksgiving in the US. Many of us will be entertaining this week and if we aren't having family and friends over in RL, we'll probably be getting together with our SL loved ones to tell them how much they mean to us. 

Thank you for reading my blog and looking at my pictures this year. It isn't great literature or art, but it gives me an outlet for expressing myself and I do appreciate each and every one of you! Thank you to the amazing creators who allow me to share their work with you each month. 
Last of all, thank you to my friends who put up with my nonsense. You guys are great! 

My LE holiday dress is from DE.Boutique, available @ Designer Showcase
You'll find the 7 Deadly S{k}in and the Avada earrings there as well. 
Nails from Mani Pedi, of course.

Not a Sucker

Relationships require a lot of understanding and forgiveness. My guy honestly believed I'd think the sucker ring proposal was funny. I quickly disabused him of that notion. 

After I finished bawling and then bawling him out (see how I did that?) and he had apologized about a thousand times, he gave me the real ring and asked if I could put up with a joker like him. Think I'll give him another chance...

Outfit and accessories available @ Designer Showcase and using the "Oh Gee" pose couch* available there from IE. The couch comes with poses for three levels of disbelief and includes a candy ring so that your SO can act like a jerk, too. Or better yet, use it for the real thing!
