Sander’s Little Helpers

Hello everyone! Let me start off by saying that this is a very real scenario for me, it has happened and it will happen again. Probably every Christmas for as long as I’m blessed with the company of my puppies. As soon as wrapping paper, presents and baubles appear, I can eat my Danish Pastry in peace. Mahogany, this is a glimpse into your future I hope you like it 😛

In the tree ornament gacha area of Tannenbaum you can find the Starlite Ornaments by Refuge. Sparkly baubles and strands and stars, moons and icosahedrons in white, gold, copper and black. Beautiful! Like all gacha items these are no copy but transfer.

GOOSE is at the early December round of Cosmopolitan with the Holiday Fireplace set; fireplace, candles, cone tree, garland and star deco all part of the set which is Copy / Modify.

The delicious Danish Pastry and Chocolate Latte are both from Cinoe and they of course dispense wearable and eatable food and drink with Bento animations, with or without Experience. Find your favorite Mannish Danish at the December round of The Arcade and the Fluffy Chocolate Latte is only 50L at Anthem (opens tomorrow December 3rd).

Did you pick up your gifts at FaMESHed yet? The Christmas Branch Decor behind me is DaD‘s Christmas gift at this event.

I’m wearing the Gabriele Sweater X-Mas edition by Nero. It comes in White, Green and Red and is compatible with Belleza Jake (shown on me), Legacy, Signature Gianni and Slink mesh bodies. This is a previous release so you can find it in the Nero mainstore. Alright, it’s time to list ALL THE STUFF!

Lazy Hazy Crazy Days

Roll out those lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer
Those days of soda and pretzels and beer
Roll out those lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer
Dust off the sun and moon and sing a song of cheer

Nat King Cole – Those Lazy, Hazy, Crazy Days Of Summer

I try not to let the bleak world situation get me down. It’s real and it’s grim but I’m here; I’m right here right now in this moment, living my life. Might as well make the best of it, even in isolation. Remember to take care of yourselves. By that, I don’t just mean social distancing and hand washing. That’s a given. I mean take care of YOU and there are a lot of ways to do that at home; Turn off the TV once in a while and exercise, draw or paint, read a book, hell, write a book! Sing, dance, cuddle and groom your pets. Pick up the phone or Skype and call a friend or a family member.
Now more than ever I’m thankful for the little things. The puppies and I are doing good. I’m healthy and I know M is healthy too and even though we can’t be together right now we will be, soon. Until then we’re both doing our part by staying home.

It’s a Wienerful Life!

This is a blog post 100% just because. Just because the wiener boxers! They immediately gave me the inspiration for this picture. It’s a real life thing, if you are a puppy parent you know, having to dash out in the early morning because the puppies really NEED to go and there’s no time to get properly dressed. Now I have lots of neighbours so I usually stumble on some sweats and a coat and slip my feet in a pair of boots that I don’t need to tie. I wish I lived somewhere with enough space and privacy, somewhere I could just open the door to let the puppies out and join them to enjoy the sunrise, just like this 😊 Have a wienerful Saturday, everyone!

Let’s Go, Papa!

Yes, yes, I call myself their ‘pappa’ (Norwegian for papa, dad). They are my furbabies after all. When I took the girls out for a walk this morning it looked so far from this picture as it possibly could. The rain was pouring down, on top of 5 inches of snow, on the frozen ground. It was water and slush everywhere and all three of us were soaking wet before all the um, business, was done and we could walk back home.

I’m looking forward to Spring and being able to wear low top sneakers again. Like these, the newest release from Lapointe & Bastchild! The Old School Low Tops feature suede toe and trim, canvas body, leather accent stripe in 40+ color combinations and BONUS grafitti and camo options. Change up the laces, choose antique or rubber sole – Mix and match to get just the right look. Optional sock on/off in 20 different colours. Fitted for Jake, Gianni, Geralt, and Slink Male bodies. Available right now at The Men’s Department!
