Hippy, Hippy, Hooray!

I finally took the plunge and got a Homestead. This will allow me to make my own backdrops, set land forms, textures, weather and more! I’ve been wanting to do this for a long time and today was the day!

Today’s post was inspired by the latest creation from my friend, Sylvi, of b[ELLE]. This top and bellbottoms set has a color change HUD for each section. The pants have the most GORGEOUS embroidery down one leg. You can see some in the photo, but I admit I didn’t quite do it justice with my classic cross-legged hippy pose.

Nap Until The Sun Shines

My biggest thrill in life is to read in the afternoon until I fall asleep and take a nap.

I excel at napping. In fact if napping was a pageant skill, I’d be crowned queen! However, Apollo, the sun god, reminded me I was merely mortal and woke me up with an eyeball piercing ray of sunshine. Will somebody please close the curtains?
