~Anura~

Hi Everyone!  Well it’s come that time when we close our books and end a good chapter with Enchantment’s round of The Frog Prince.  It was only (sadly) an event from 11 – 31 August 2018 but I have to say, this not being one of my favorite stories I still enjoyed the designers unique ways to capture their view points.  I think it’s fun to be an interpreter of sorts and coming up with my own story as I put their beautiful creations together.

Today’s look will be my last for Enchanted and I’m sad but happy at the same time.  My Real Life has picked up a lot of momentum since we started this venture together and well it takes time to do what I do, but oh don’t you worry it’s all for the love of creativity.

I hope you enjoy What Blu is Wearing:froglastphotofinal.png Blu

~It’s All In the Wrist~

Hi Everyone~  I hope you day is going well and the weather is treating you nicely.  I’m sitting here sipping (more like milking) my coffee this morning and trying to take things at a nice pace.  I seem to want things to go faster and don’t seem to be wanting to take things slow for some crazy reason so I am going to try to take a little time for me tomorrow.  I’m going antique shopping!  One of my favorite RL things to do and no I don’t have a lot of money but it’s fun to look at old things (stinky and all) and just wonder what they are made for.

Not old or stinky (no way to blend those subjects together…sorry) is this wonderful ball gown from FDD for The Enchantment.  I chose the Blush color (shown below) but it is a full southern bells look and I do declare someone will swish through many a room and turn some heads in this look.

~Perseverance”

Hi Everyone~  I hope your weekend is treating you well.  I wanted to take this time to say hello and just plunge into some creative time.  I feel like I’m kinda getting into my grove for blogging Enchantment now and finding all things fun and pretty to blog about.  I love that the creators/designers let you have that open ability to do as you wish.  I will definitely be taking advantage of that…and SOON!

So today I bring to you just a fun “spoof” off the Princess Frog.  I liked the idea of her all dressed cute, ready to find her “Prince”, yet kissing all the wrong frogs.  I guess you need a sense of humor but I like it and yes it’s not your typical but who’s to say you have to do things normal?  NOT ME!  So I bring to you these adorable little frogs and this super sexy bodysuit.  Enchantment is running from 11 – 31 August 2018 so you have time to shop & Enjoy!

Well that’s it for me today.  I hope you  have a great Sunday!

~Nova~

Hi Everyone~  So today’s look is not quite in theme with the Enchanted event, but in my opinion I say you don’t quite have to follow the rules.  So, today I bring you all things magical.  I saw this dress and at first I was a bit taken back, I will admit.  I was like what to do.  So, I do, what I always do.  I do Blu…and that is purple and Blu after all which are my favorite colors to mix and match.  So that is what I am brining to you today.  I hope you got coffee!  In fact while I write this that is exactly what I am drinking.  Ahhh so comforting.

What Blu is wearing:birthnoraskin.pngHead: Simone

Since there is only one skin applier you’re looking at it in a nut shell.  Just fyi her feet are also the ombre purple tone like the arms, it’s just hard to shoot your entire avatar and get the same effect in the photo.  I am told there is a “normal skin” in the works so my Lelutka ladies please be patient it’s coming :D.  Ok, alright, that’s it for me today.  I hope you liked my look.  I do love purple, blues and a touch of pink in a photo.  It’s so soothing.

Waves*  Thank-YOU for reading!

~Before the Plunge~

Hi Everyone!  So today I bring to you from the original tale of the frog prince where the princess has lost her ball and the frog has retrieved it.  There are so many different versions of this story that I never really know which way I’m going to go with a look but the designers sure help out with all their great designs.  I just plug and wahhh-laaa BAM there’s a pretty picture.  Now I have to admit some I get a little carried away with *winks*.

Maybe its Real Life and I’m distracted and lose track of time, but most of the time I have a “time limit” on my photos and I try to commit to that and keep my photos in check.  Sometimes….that does not happen lol.  So todays look was actually inspired by the pose maker LaPoppy.  I didn’t do any poses last Enchantment.  Not because I didn’t like them, but honestly it was because it was my first Enchantment Event and I was overwhelmed by all the wonderful items I got to blog.  Just before that I had done Fantasy Fairie so I was kinda on a high.

Well I’ll keep this short and to the point because now I am rambling. 😛

~Enchantments Charlotte LaBouff, Frog Princess & Le Facilier~

Hi Everyone~  So I’ve been a bit preoccupied in my RL the last couple of days.  My carpel tunnel has really kicked in due to some gardening that I had to do (I do mean HAD) and my kids started school on Tuesday.  We had last-minute shopping, schedules and of course we almost missed the bus because we didn’t know the schedules.  Ahhhh fun.  You’d think teenagers would start taking a more “active role” in their schooling,  but I feel that here is NOT the case *sighs*.  I have some gentlemen here prepping walls in my home for a wall that fell down in my basement so it’s been NOT a nice couple of days.

I’ve not had any peace and quite and trying to get on the computer to just “chime in and hone on my creative side has felt more of a challenge”.  But I have been brain storming and I do have some solid ideas and I’m super excited to see if they come to fruition.  I hope you forgive my days of gone by.  Now I gotta hit the PS and get these ideas (BIG) underway.

They are for Enchantment of course because I feel I like to try more PS ideas with them.  They are however more Magical settings and that Is where I feel my heart is well represented.  Ok getting off my chat rant now.  Today is going to be a big look.  It took a few days to do (which wont look like it to you)  Ahhh the magic of PS.

What the Blu’s are wearing: (for the ease of this all heads are Lily unless stated) and skins will be posed – Body will be Maitreya)enchantmentirrisistible4.pngCharlotte:

Skin:  DeeTaleZ:  Appliers for Catway Head “Taylor 2” for Christmas GIFT – Was just that a Christmas gift from the store and I got this as a group member.  I’m not 100% sure if it’s still at the store but I thought this was a lovely gesture of the store creator for such a lovely gift and she’s truly a lovely skin (and looks a little like Charlotte in my opinion)

Dress: (minus fan): *NEW* irrISIStible – Charlotte La Bouff Mesh outfit – This outfit is AMAZING and comes with everything down to some animated sparkles that I hope I got photo’d.  Comes with Hair, Shoes, Socks, Gloves, Earrings, Leg Bow, Laced Body suit, Prim for pelvis (the jewels and money), Shoes, Sleeves, Tiara – Comes Rigged for Maitreya, Freya, Hourglass, Isis, Physique, Venus – Now the gloves are appliers but the applier hud comes specific for bodies or even Omega so what’s NOT to like.  This is such a great set and I was super lucky to be a blogger for this amazing Designer –  The Enchantment Event – The Frog Prince from 11 – 31 August 2018

Fan:  I had to PS it in.  I tried to use a Market Place purchase, but it kept animating and then I bought another that was not, but it was no mod even when it said it was.  So yes, I said, screw it.

Pose: by me

Tiana

Dress: *NEW*Infinity – Triana Princess *RARE* Gatcha – I’m wearing w/the Maitreya body, but it does not state in my notes what body this is for, so please check!  Items up for grabs with this dress are the lovely 1920’s flappers Blink *not shown* to add a little shimmer in your dress and jewels/necklace in in black, blue, brown, purple, red white, yellow  & the Orleans Dress in BBlue, Black, Brown, Coral, Green, Violet, Green, White, Yellow!  Go check these out, it’s so hard to find a great 1920’s- 30’s Dress and they are so well done, even the commons are nice! –  The Enchantment Event – The Frog Prince from 11 – 31 August 2018

Skin: remy&rowe – Dora milaje – in espresso – older skin for Catwa, but I don’t have very many darker skins as I’m a “pale skins lover” so I thought this would work.  I know the skin maker now is under a new brand called “flesh”.

*wipes her brow* I’m not sure if it’s me but I’m suuureee tired after all that.  I MUST admit this was a bit of an overestimation of time and what I thought it would take me and what it actually took me, but I like the end result.  I’m not 100% happy with it, but if I could make it bigger (but it lags people) I would and I think THAT would make me happy.  Anyways I hope you all have or are planning on going.  I will be seeing you over there.

Thank-YOU for reading!
