LUNA'S DARK RASPBERRY

This weeks color acording to my friend Google has more options to fit the Dark Raspberry bill. And I used almost all of the options in my mixing and matching my outfit for this week. Wikepedia is telling us :
Dark raspberry is a color that resembles the color of a black raspberry."Dark raspberry" is also the color of regular raspberries that have been boiled down into raspberry jam or sauce with sugar to use for cake filling, filling for French pancakes, ice cream topping, etc.
After reading this I finished my pictures craving for sweets and ice cream.
Making the pictures I was singing the song of Prince although it is called the Raspberry Beret and not the dark raspberry beret but is was close just as close as I tried to be to the dark side of raspberry.
The bottem picutere well that is not raspberry more red but I neded to show the fabulous new skin of { . essence . } in a close up. Have a nice Sunday and a nice week see you all next week for the next color that will be the color dandelion a yellow that reminds me of Spring and Summer.

BACK TO BLACK PART V

Today after the day of  LღVE  I move back to the Back to Black  effent. Did some walking around on the sim and OMG I don't know if I have enougf time to post out the fabulous designs I spotted there !! Looking @ the callender I see there are still 13 days left , the effent closes @ the 29th of February and it raising awareness for mental health issues. When you are shopping there take your time to read the text and statements about some diseases  and disorders some of them were eye openers  to me and gave me food for thought.
Making this pictures I rememberd the camping trips I took with my parents when I was young and to  be honest I am so not an outdoor girl. When I am on vacation I need my luxury a warm hot shower and bath every day and a good bed to sleep in. Have fun shopping !!!

PINK VALENTINE DOLL

14th of February and it seems the world is made out of    on that day. In Holland it used to be not a big of a deal  but the last years Valentines Day is getting more and more popular and to be honest..... count me out. Lets skip this idea of only 1 day of   hearts , giving cards and pressents. Make it an effort the whole year around of pleasing the ones you LღVE  and don't wait a year to express your feelings to the one you have a secret crusch on.... do it right away !!!!
Thanks for the cards and flowers people sent me but please .... sending me a box of chocolate ( prim chocolats that is ) right on that time of month I am craving for sweets what were you thinking !! And I know , I know it is the thought that counts but sending  prim chocolats is just being mean !!!
So because of Valentine and the fabulous group gift Love Foxdale designer of **SHINE** gave out to her loyal customers I made this pink Valentine doll. Word of advice go see the Valentines edition of The Dressing Room it will make your SL shopping heart beating like Cupido's drum.

BACK TO BLACK PART IV

When I was invited as one of the bloggers to cover the CHIC  Back to Black effent I was honerd. Trough this event I got talking with diffrent people about there own personal experiences with mental health issues and in some of the boxes I opened enclosed notecards with facts about diffrent mental health issues. One of them struck me hard having a best friend who's father took his own life when she was just 17 and she is still struggeling with that fact years later.
Losing someone to suicide can cause overwhelming shock and grief. It’s important to remember that when someone has taken their own life, it was their decision and not something that you could control.

BACK TO BLACK PART II

How times flys !! Just 1 week to go at my little break from work and then it is back to business as usual. Untill that time my center point of attention will be the CHIC effent Back to Black and I will try to post as many items as possible.
Did some remoddeling @ my house in SL as well. Removed the tropical wood themed house and went for a lighter feel of it all. I can add remoddeling to the things I  L❥VE but .......... I  dislike ( that is an under statement ) prim counting. It seems that I  NEVER have enough prims  to set everything up !! So choises had to be made, what had to go and what could stay .... na na na  bla bla bla. Used my new and improved living room to show some of the poses you can buy @ the Back to Black effent and just right before Valentines day  I fell in  lღve with a  bear.

LUNA'S FOLLY

This weeks color was realy a challenge !! Did a lot of TPing around visit the SL Marketplace ( my best friend in need ) so I add this place to the things the  L❥VE challenge and digged deep in my World Warr 3 zone inventory. Did some googeling as well to see what the world is sharing on the color folly. I say the color folly because I found out it is an architecture term as well but now the folly I was struggeling with this week. And the struggle lays in the exactly in the explanation of the color on Wikipedia that says : Folly is a color one-fourth of the way between crimson and rose, closer to crimson than to rose. The first recorded use of folly as a color name in English was in 1920. I looked @ the color card over and over again is it kind of red (ish) or is it kind of pink (ish) ? So finaly I found this sleeping shirt made of mesh and I think I hit close to target. Have a nice weekend and a lovely Valentines day later on this week.
