Shhh… Let's Pretend It's Sunday

I’m trying my best to ignore the fact that it’s Monday and I have a whole week of having to live in my own time zone ahead of me. Get up at 6 am. Walk the puppies. Shower. Feed breakfast to the puppies and myself. Be off to work by 7:30. It’s still dark at 7:30, my brain wants to sleep in. Let’s pretend it’s Sunday?

CHEZ MOI provides us with the perfect place to spend our downtime with the Adore King Bed Set; The bed contains Bento animations, PG (101 animations) and Adult (173 animations) versions available. 36 single animations. Touch the blanket for colour options. The set also includes all the decor shown in my picture apart from the lamp. The lamp is from GOOSE.

We’re getting comfy wearing the His and Her Downtime sets by Allure Couture. PJ bottoms and shirt for the guys and legwarmers and shirt for the women. HUD controlled texture changer for each piece so you can mix and match colours. You can find both sets at this round of the 7Event!

Hello 2020!

As we say good bye 2019 I’m thinking about what a year it’s been for me, in “both lives”. Well, I’m one who doesn’t separate the two, but I’m not going to talk about that right now.

What a year it’s been! I’ve only two years as a resident; a year and a half ago I started taking pictures and getting familiar with the viewer camera tools. I did a couple of blog post at the end of 2018, just for fun. Then in the beginning of 2019 I decided I wanted to give blogging a serious go so I found a couple of sponsors that were willing to give a total newbie a chance and the ball started rolling.

After seeing each other online for 8 months, M and I met up and went on vacation together in June. It was wonderful and the most significant thing that happened in my life in 2019 but I’m not going to talk more about that here.

In August I celebrated reaching 1K followers by hosting a photo contest, which was awesome fun for me and I got nothing but positive feedback from those who participated.

Blogging takes hard work and dedication, from the start. I pride myself with having a quality blog and a high Flickr engagement. What’s the use of having 5K followers if you’re not engaging them? Will they remember your picture? Will they notice the brand you’re showcasing? Will they read your blog? Click on that Slurl? No, no, no and no. Ok, now I got derailed for a bit. Or maybe not, because..

In October I was nominated for The Bloggies. Being nominated was a great honour and it told me that I had managed to successfully enter the SL blogosphere and that my blogging was being appreciated by others. To those who nominated me, I’m sending a big big thank you your way.

So what’s in store for 2020? There’s a trip to the US in the very near future. I’ll of course continue blogging and I’m sticking to my all-round style because I love the freedom it gives me, the versatility. Every product is different, every picture lives its own life and sometimes it has a story to tell. What else? Whatever happens, happens. I’m approaching the new year with a positive mindset and my dreams and hopes for the future intact. I truly hope you can say the same. If not, then I wish 2020 is the year of positive change for you. Make it so.

Oh, and today I’m blogging the 2020 Photo Booth by CHEZ MOI! A perfect addition to any New Year’s party, with single, friends and couple poses ready for your guests to take memorable pictures. You can find it at their mainstore and marketplace! And we’re looking mighty fine, wearing the Gage Tuxedo by Lapointe & Bastchild and the Laura Gown by Allure Couture.

Procaffeinating

(noun)
the tendency to not start anything until you’ve had a cup of coffee.

Good morning! Are you like me and need a cup of coffee or tea to start your day? I’m at work. I have opened my work e-mail and I took a peek at the cases in our incident report system because I’m going to do some case work.. but first, I need coffee. It might be the absence of daylight that’s affecting me (it’s 10 a.m. and dark as night), I’ve been super slow getting started today.

It’s good then, that No. 59 has made this amazing espresso machine! It can make you espresso, espresso lungo, latte, cappuccino, house coffee, hot chocolate and tea! Just click the power button to activate the machine and flip through the menu shown on the display. Click [START] and you can watch as the machine makes your brew of choice, when it’s finished the cup or glass will attach to your hand with a hold and drink animation. There are two types of machines; one with Experience (activate the experience on your parcel following the instructions in the attached notecard) and one with regular prop attach. It also has a HUD controlled texture changer.

Oh, and I’m wearing the FKD 2019 Christmas sweater which I’ve previously shown with a different texture. Bold and festive! 😉

Home For Christmas

As a young man and poor student, I always went home to my parents’ every year for Christmas. The drive from the University and home was just 3,5 hours. 4 in a blizzard. Still to this day, many, many… years later, and me living in a town even further away because of work my mum asks me if I’m coming home for Christmas. Family is important to me, but it’s a 12 hour drive, in snow, so the puppies and I are staying home most Christmases and celebrate with friends. Home is a lot of places.

MINA has made a new male hair! Casual handsome long hair that’s tucked behind the ears and cap, the MINA Wim is perfect for your every day look. The hair is equipped with a color change HUD for the hat with 6 assorted colors and material options. It’s available at Santa Inc. that’s now open!

I’m also wearing another version of the L&B Swear Havoc Sweater that I blogged for the first time yesterday. The sweater is available at TMD.

Sander

Some wise words guys before the Holidays, you’re welcome :p

This sweater though! Click on the picture for HQ version, do it and see why L&B has been one of my favourite outfitters since I became resident. The Swear Havoc Sweater is a new release by Lapointe Bastchild and it is out now at TMD! All pacs give you the choice of mock turtle neck or crew neck sweater. You can of course purchase select single sweaters but if you choose to buy the fatpack you get a grand total of 45 different knit options of which 8 are fatpack exclusive theme knits.

I’m wearing the sweater together with the L&B Gage Tuxedo Slacks. Hide the belt and you have a perfect fit. The sweater is also compatible with the L&B Swear Havoc Jeans and the Havoc Leather pants.
