Wicked Wicked Wild Wild West

 

The Challenge SL is upon us again with another round, this time the theme was Wild West!

Wicked Wicked Wild Wild West, innit!There are such a huge amount of AWESOME goodies, great for scenarios and every day use, I made a little picture out of a few things, as you can see above, I kinda love it!

You can click through to see bigger, but I used both the store and some of the decor pack from Hate This, including the wheat sack, coffin lid and barrel (resized), but there are SO many items for you to have a look through, and of course I had to throw a cactus in there too!  The store is MASSIVE and so well made, would make someone a perfect saloon store!  It comes with all the guts of a store too, yay!

I love the little bench from Sways, available in a few different textures and with animations in it, both singles and couples, this is perfect for any situation in ANY room, or outdoors on your porch, or wherever you want really!   To top it all off the little horseshoe mug tree with mugs from Kuro! Such a cute idea, more ideal in a kitchen situation, but well, I fancied a cuppa on my bench, so there you have it!

The Arrival

 

 

What is arriving you may ask!? Well 1st March sees another round of The Arcade begin, crazy elbow shoving, mental rares, grabby hand, feet and sexual organs.  YEP!   CANNOT WAIT!   This is a little sneaky peek of the divine set available from Ispachi.

Ispachi @ The Arcade

 

The set is aptly called, The Arrival and is 6 common pieces, and 1 rare.  They are ALL gorgeous though, but I know everyone will want the entire set!  The rare is the bear/fox combo with the little beehive and butterfly, other bits, as you can see, include some waddling mallards, wise looking owls, swans, squirrels, frolicking foxes and hopping hares!

These pieces are more ornamental than wildlife type decor, but they could totes get away with it, I decide to take my pictures in my beautiful Scarlet Creative house, but I have seen some gorgeous forest based snaps.

Cannot wait for the event to start and get hooked on that ONE RARE that I just can’t find! YAY!

Breaking into a New Home

I am always putting up houses, half decorating, and tearing them down, it’s just what I do! I couldn’t resist putting up this Wavebreaker house from Trompe Loeil that is out at Collabor88…

Wavebreaker @ Trompe Loeil

It’s a mesh BEAUTY! It comes in two sizes and each are plenty roomy enough, with a little open plan bottom area and side stairs leading to a veranda, another room, and then more stairs leading up to a balcony style bedroom (or whatever you want!)  The texturing is fabulous, as always with Trompe, and the craftmanship matches totally in that percentage! UGH I love it!  So spacey an airey.

My Cosy Little Corner

I haven’t had time to set a bunch of stuff up, but I set myself up a little corner in the “lower deck” as I call it all cozy and cute.   I’ll go from left to rightish and give shout outs to the creators of the awesome!   My chair is from Trompe Loeil again and is the other item at C88, such comfy and cosy chairs and with OODLES of anims.   You can’t QUITE see it because I am a fail face, but there is a ladder light, which is what the stars are dangling from, and it plugs into the wall, that’s from Kuro and is SO GORGEOUS!    My table is from the delectable DIGS, the breakfast tray and heart candles are all from CIRCA, two of my fave stores that make the CUTEST things.

Both the heart frame and star shelf are from Sway’s and are just two of the many wonderful items that Sway has been banging out!  The little bunnies on the coffee table are from Atelier Visconti and are a gacha item, a handful to win and all so cute!  Finally my picture room divider is new from Alouette and is the perfect thing for all your memories, or stealing others memories cos you don’t have any, which is what I did. HUZZAH

Northern Lights vs Teal Town

A little LoTD for you today, and with that some new goodies from The Liaision Collaborative and it’s theme of Northern Lights! HUZZAH!

Sways @ TLC

This gorgeous bedroom set from Sways comes in both Adult and PG and you can get the bed, the bench and the side table and all are effin’ GORGEOUS! I’ve never been a lover of… feature beds, you know with one thing that just stands out, so you have to be able to fit it in a room, but this, this is stunning!  With oodles of poses and it’s striking appearance, this is a deffo buy for sure.

I put it inside the Breno  Mars  2 Aurora!  It comes on it’s own, with terrain and with terrain and Aurora, I went for the whole hog.  It’s distressed look is perfect for urban living, or if you want a little man cave, or a woman cave with a bit of GRRR.  The terrain and aurora make it perfect for a skybox too!   Plenty of windows for shadow shots to work and plenty of space for living, if you’re an addict to living quarter buying like me, you’ll adore this.

Breno @ TLC

My look of the day mainly comes from that cute little store, Somnia!  The top and skirt are both from there and I matched it up on a trip to Teal Town!   I adore this pixel heart shirt, it’s so cute, and shows a little belly and shoulder while not being all out there all your bits hanging out!   The skirt is a shorty,  but not an crack shower, so that’s a bonus!  Both come in oooooodles of colours and sizes, the tops even come with “flat” options, how good is that?

LoTD - Teal Town

My skin is Ria from Belleza, currently available at Collabor88, but I will showcase that in all it’s glory in another post.   Also from Collabor88 are these gorgeous shoes from fri.day, the Miranda heels come in a variety of colours and are made for the Slink High Feet!   A gorgeous strappy pair perfect for casual or dressier affairs.  My ring and necklace are from Cae and are The Rack item!  Oh my gosh they are divine!!!   I absolutely love this set encompassing love and style all in one shot!    My hair is also new from Exile, all three releases are male orientated this time round, but this one has a fem size too, so was no surprise I wore it, I have been waiting on an Exile release forEVER!

The Challenge – Glass!

The Challenge’s new round has the theme “Glass”, it’s taken on many forms from many wonderful designers, just a few mentioned here in this post.

The Challenge - Glass

Bauwerk from 22769 released this gorgeous loft style skybox, with it’s warm wooden floors, concrete walls and of course, glass windows.. and a wall of windows too makes the perfect place to rez ALL the things and make it all look pretty!   The furniture comes from IDC and it is SO so gorgeous!  You get choices of sofa, chairs, table, pictures, candles, little knickknacks, tables, and shelving… some of it not shown but it’s all high quality and the seating comes with SO many animations, pg, family and both couples and solo orientated, so a bit of everything for everyone.

The Challenge - Glass - Up Close and Personal

The gorgeous litle vase complete with flowers and plug is courtesty of Kuro and might be my fave “Glass” thing!   So so pretty.

I also took a sneaky shot of my newly married friend couples, Bunz and Laur.  May they always be never arguing over mittens and cats.

Moving in at Christmas…

What kind of utter nutter decides to move around Christmastime!? Well this time 6 years ago, I did in RL! We moved into our new home on Boxing Day with a newborn! CRAZY TIMES! Well, this year I thought I’d recreate in SL, although my SL house is a lot nicer, albeit it smaller than my RL one was, a little less practical maybe.

Moving in at Christmas!

Aphrodite Shop/Heart Homes has this new winter home out and it’s all cozy and cute!  It comes complete with it’s own sauna and even a pergola with a fireplace outside!   The swing you cam see is also from the same store and is loaded with singles and couples poses with a cute christmassy look.    The house boasts several rooms and several fireplaces, it’s not huge but definitely big enough, it is only partial mesh though but with it’s wall decals, billowing curtains and general cute and snowy look, it’s great!

I threw out a few bits, and as you can see I am still unpacking.  Please click through for larger pictures!

Moving in at Christmas! - Up close and Personal

As you can see, I have barely touched the place, but I know I can make it warm and cozy, and then probably tear it down because I have house changing ADHD .  Several stores have helped me out with my decor, Circa have a great advent going on and you can see a cute branch decal, a mirror, a super awesome twig floor light and my 2 gorgeous caged robins, they are from there!

Also shown is a pose set, but without anybody on the poses.  The tree is from Rack Poses and comes with a box of baubles and a bauble to hold and is a really cute and cozy couples pose.  Great idea!   My sleds and cute comfy chairs, as well as my lantern tin lights are from What Next, the sleds and lanterns are a VIP gift, the sleds come with poses for several people and are meant for racing, sadly I have no friends, well none that were online and wanted to pose anyway.. BOOOOO.    Finally my cute little dolly and stack of pancakes aptly named Santas Breakfast are from Kuro!!!   My trees are mostly from Botanical, and there is a little sled from Trompe Loeil and a cute animal snow bear thinger from Aura, now Auxiliary.

Cute christmassy stuff for cute christmassy times! HUZZAH!

Take Care…

OF YOUR TOOTSIES!

Take Care..

 

It may look in this picture like I have only one leg, or I sleep, or sit, like a Flamingo, but neither of those things are true!   I am merely sitting up on my gorgeous chair, courtesy of Valiant & Co and Cheeky Pea!    The Cobbler Room Set is formed in Gacha style, so you can swap and mix and match to your hearts content.

A beautifully detailed and intricate set, the chair is a rare, and you can’t see it all but I assure you it’s GRAND!   And then there are various corresponding bits and bobs for you to win.     Whether you want to set up your own little scenario in the home, or garage, or simply want some decor, these are wonderfully crafted.

Only available on Sim 1 @ Shoetopia!

New Lodgings!

So The Garden @ TLC has been open a few days and this round is inspired by “The Lodge” and there are lots of rustic lodgey goodies for you, just a couple of stores featured in today’s blog post cos I have a RL thing to do! YAY RL THINGS!

Pixel Mode @ TLC

There are a few log cabins, well a couple there, and there are ones popping up all over the grid, it’s that time of year!  I love this one from Pixel Mode.  It comes with fully functioning fire that you can see in the picture below and makes the perfect fall getaway, or winter, or well.. whatever you want really.  It’s woody, it’s delicious.   What more can I say?!   The texturing is AMAZING and it feels so real when you’re stood inside it.  HUZZAH AND HURRAH!

Bauwerk @ TLC!

 

Inside I popped a few of Bauwerks goodies out, there are tons of things to choose from, Paco and Manu always do so much!!   This gorgeous Lodge style bed is just one of the items, it comes in both PG and Adult and has an array of animations and four styles to choose from, the pillows are texture change so you can match your decor.   The lamp you see comes in many colours too, both with a right and a left plug, so you can have one either side, but I chose to put the gorgeous rose vase out on the other side, that’s not MY side of the bed, so whoever (note nobody) sleeps that side, they won’t have light. SUCKS TO BE THEM!  They’re close to the fire tho.   The item that made my day tho was the Deer Head, it comes with 2 versions, one a bit naughty with some undercrackers on it, I had to put that one out because that’s how I roll!  Make sure you check out ALL the wonderful goodies, and you enjoy your weekends <3

The Magical Loft

So.. further to my post earlier, I decided to do a little decorating INSIDE… I took myself up to the attic of my cute and creepy little cottage and did it up, magical style with lots of goodies from The Wizarding Faire!

The Magical Loft

So up I toddled to the loft of my cottage and I thought what could I put here? What better to put in there but magical stuffs?!    A little room of goodness all magical and OoooooOoooooOoo!     The main piece of the room is the dorm bed from Cheeky Pea, available in a variety of colours or “houses” this bed comes as single or family and is just simply delicious!   I wanted to make an actual dorm but figured i’d not be greedy this time around.   On my lovely bed are two of the Schadenfreude books which come with a variety of pictures and stuffs, you can even use them posed, but being the studious Willis I am, I was reading in bed, of course!

Under my cute little window I have the Collage shelf complete with little cauldron, broom and MORE books, and it’s also home to two of my MiaMai pets, which wobble and are the cutest little animals EVAH!   And my Auxiliary Satchel hangs off the end all casual and nonchalant, well as nonchalant as a satchel gets.    We then have my gooooorgeous shelf complete with yep… more books and my delicate little hat from Olive, which sits next to my Eleventh Hour cube robot fortune machine!!!  I tell you, that thing is not kind to me.  To make it a little more homely I set out my MEOW scroll and hung it from the wall, yep! THATS ME DONE!

It’s FALLAUTUMNNEARLYCHRISTMAS

Hi guys, I’m a bit excited, well I was when I woke up and decided I’d go landscape, then I remembered how crap I was at landscaping and how I don’t have a fuggin clue, so now i’m sad again, if anyone wants to give landscaping lessons, PLEASE DO.

Trompe Loiel  @ C88

My plan was to use the gorgeous new Cottage from Trompe Loeil at Collabor88 alongside the beautiful Botanical Trees and Shrubbery from FaMESHed and bring two events together in an autumn spectacular, obviously I failed.  I do much better with fashion but I am determined to crack this home and furniture blogging lark! I NEED SOMEONE TO TEACH ME TO LANDSCAPE PLZ.  Anyway… the cottage? OH THE COTTAGE!!! You will see the insides of it more in the upcoming posts full of furniture goodies but omg I love it! Cory really pulled out the stops with this one and perfectly in time for Halloween and Autumn!  It’s not massive so perfect for a little slice of land, or even a little getaway! YAY!   The trees as I mentioned are from FaMESHed and are from Botanical, I had to buy both the trees and underbrush set because I am in LOVE with the season changing system.   You may stumble and think do I want to pay out for $L799 for copiable trees.. and you will soon be reminded yes you DO.. because they are changable through the seasons, so well well WELL worth it!

Country Pumpkins!

Also shown in the picutre is the cart and hay bales from Botanical, and a bunch of pumpkin decor from 11th Hour, all gacha goodies and all fantastic!  Not all shown here but you will want to treat them like Pokemon and catch them all, I assure you!
