I’ve Moved!

After some thought and consideration, I decided that I’m going to move my blog over to where I have my Virtual Wanderlust blog.  This way, it is all in one and it will make it easier and simplier for me when I’m blogging.  This has been fun and adventure in learning a new platform but, it has become a little cumbersome to flip between the different platforms all the time.

With that said, I can now be found over at Confessions of a Photography Freak, which is also the new name, since I was due a little bit of a refresher as well.

Breakfast of Champions

The clock is ticking as the end of the weekend comes way too quickly, to a close.  This weekend, I was lucky and located some amazing deals and some fun things to work with.  I do not normally do anything Kawaii but I figured that giving a whirl, would be fun and challenge me a little.  I admit, I sure did have fun doing this and I hope you enjoy it as well.  As usual, all credits of what I used, will be located below the picture.

Spring Fantasy

There is something fun about creating a whole fantasy setup.  For me, it’s a time to let my creativity out, let my mind enjoy some wandering and just enjoy pulling everything together, to create a scene that is just fun.

I used the LuluB! Galaxy Queen makeup and Clover’s Flower Nymph cover, which I found at We ❤ RP,  to help inspire me for this setup.  Matching it up with Truth’s newest release, Destiny, it all fell in place beautifully.  The blue tone in the Selection pack went with the entire look seamlessly.

Romance on the Grid

Some of my favorite times on the grid correlate with different holidays.  The grid comes to life and is filled with even more fun things to do and experience.  Valentine’s day and the build-up to that day never disappoint me.  Everywhere I look, everyone is excited, having fun, enjoying themselves, whether they are single or with someone, there is something for everyone.

For fashion, I admit, my favorite colors are Red, pink and hot pink, which is very plentiful at this time of the year.  Two stores that I love, Osmia and Minimal have some little treats for us, going on right now.  For Osmia, for a very limited time, the group is free to join and they have amazing group gifts.  The Valentine’s day dress is beautiful on and there is a hud that comes with it, so you have a choice of several colors, from pink, red, blue, green, etc.

For Minimal, they have a Valentine’s Calendar going this week.  You do have to be part of the group to get these, which is 150L to join but, since I joined last year, the amount of gifts and events that they have had has more than paid back that price.  There is an area for past group gifts, (he creates amazing backdrops, which he has given away a few), which you can pick up still.  Now, the days that have passed, you do have to pay for them, which is 50L, which is really cheap for this quality of jewelry.  Today is the last day and that one is free, for today only though.

Heartfelt Brunch

I finally had a chance to sit down and have a lovely little brunch and chat with my dear friend Lelila Starsider.  As we sat down together and enjoyed nibbling on the delicious little heart cookies and sipping on our latte’s, in their cute heart cups, from What Next, we were able to discuss all the amazing sales that can be found on the grid, for this upcoming Valentine’s day.

Yes, we are both shopaholics and we are proud of it.  I do know that she is going to enjoy heading over to C88 and I did mention that the Valentine’s Shop and Hop is going around, so keep an eye open here, to see what we come up with, in the next few days.  Now, get ready, get set, SHOP!

Fashionable Friday

Here we are, my favorite day of the week, Friday!  This is the day where all the amazing deals to be found on the grid, start.  Sometimes though, some of the stores will set out their deals early, as was the case for Tetra.

Tetra has this uber-cute Freebird top available for only 50L, which comes in Navy or a very nice Blush color.  Both of the tops have the option of being solid or see-through.  In the photo that I took, showing off the see-through option, I paired it up with her lacey lingerie group gift bra, which goes perfectly as an under piece to the Freebird top.  All credits are located at the bottom of the post, under the photos, if you wish to recreate the looks I came up with.

Grabbing a little lunch

My friend Stocky and I finally had a chance to do a little sit-down and enjoy some chatting, laughter, and good company!  While munchin on our burgers and fries, we took the opportunity to take some photos, as well.

Of course, I made sure to look my best for this handsome lad, so I wore my new outfit from (fd), the Bossy Blazer and Jeans, that are presently over at C88, right now.  They fit the mood and looked amazing while we enjoyed ourselves taking photos.
