The Age of Innocence

Hello all! A lovely little LoTD today with a bit of a homey twist too!   I am in love with the LoTD part of this tho! Super cute, that is how I feel! <3

LoTD - The Age of Innocence

Full credits are below but I have to say this cute ruffled school outfit from Epic is divine! And it comes in so many colours, pastels and more vibrant ones alike!   The hair from Truth comes with a detachable bow, but I wore it with one of the Mango Cheek Gacha Headbands from the new, cute event Where the Wild Things Are.   To mix up the look a little, I added an upcoming item from Cubic Cherry Kreations, The Void Band, worn across the cheeks for a totally different look!   These cute high wedges from CandyDoll are the latest Kustom9 item and come in a plethora of colours and you can change the wedge material and of course the chain metals!   A post is upcoming with the eyes/skins!

The Seasons Story is coming to a close, but you can still go and find this gorgeous and massive cottage from Vespertine, and the recycled sink!   The other two items were Lazy Sunday items, so you won’t get them for a steal now, but they are well worth the money from Plethora and Alouette respectively <3

The Storybook Queen

We Love Roleplay has opened it’s doors for July’s round and BOOYYYY are you in for some pretty stuff!  A little LoTD and a Homey type post! (the home you live in, not homey bro :D)

The Storybook Queen - LoTD

I have to say Peqe is coming one of my fave stores to see what comes next, it’s always something so different to the last time!   This time it’s a gorgeous mermaid style dress in various colours, perfect for my self given title of Queen of the WORLD.. or just, of my particular space in SL at that moment, as you can see I have no Kingdom so that about sums up my reign!  Paired it with the lovely Spellbound Hair that you can wear with or without crown and I feel a trillion dollars!  The skin from Essences is part of a new range and was a little teaser, she’s also a beaut!  Full credits at the bottom of the post.

Frogstar offered up this Storybook Cottage, I absolutely LOVE it, I am not sure how much I could live in in fulltime before I wanted to hurl something at my camera trying to zoom in and out but as a whimsical living area it’s perfect.  It comes in this Red or.. not in Red!   I can imagine it would make a really fun living space for kids if you have them or are one, or even as just a little getaway.

The Storybook Queen - Homestyle

You can see it’s pretty slim (it IS a book!) but it comes with 2 levels then a little bunker at the top too, you may want to decorate it with a teeny bed and a small living area, or make it a pets home! That is a GREAT idea! Either way it’s totes adorbs! LOVE!

Watching, Waiting…

Another year, another FFL (Fashion for Life) is here!  The event opens today, 7th June and runes until 20th June.   It’s a long running event with all donations to go to SL Relay for Life, benefiting the American Cancer Society.    The event runs across 10 sims, yes 10! and the theme this year is Wanderlust.   Over the huge event area you will find over 150 stores offering goodies, including gacha and a region wide passport game with goodies!   There are donation kiosks if you don’t see anything that tickles your fancy, but I am so sure you will!

 

Watching, Waiting...

 

 

 

 

 

 

Events are common place in SL, but FFL and other charity events always hold a special place in my heart, I’ve mixed and matched a few here.  Above you can see me lookin all FORLORN because I’ve been stood up, thankfully my gorgeous dining set from Trompe Loeil in my new house, also by Trompe Loeil is keeping me sane.  This dining set is gorgeous and comes in so many options and colours with bits and bobs galore, including Adult and PG Chairs… for those can’t wait for desert times :D

Watching, Waiting - Up Close and Personal

Clearly while I was waiting and Mr Right didn’t show, I grew horns, naturally these can be found at We Love Roleplay, where all your roleplay demon needs are catered for :D  Cubic Cherry is really throwing out some fantastic items lately, I love these horns, simple but effective!   From TDR Fusion we have this new skin and my heart shaped ring, full credits below but two other stores I am loving lately in Al Vulo and Swallow!    My dress is from FFL and is from Lacuna, a very simple two tone halter, available in a handful of colours for your must have needs!  New KOY hair makes me happy, a lovely short, sharp do, pixie and boyish, perfect for summer!   Other goodies from ZOZ, gorgeous glittery nails and strappy heels, YAY!

Surround yourselves with those that blossom…

Not really a LoTD today, or a complete home post, a bit of a mix of both :)

Surround yourself with those that bloom...

I tried the WowMeh Mesh Body and was pleasantly surprised! I wish I could get all my clothes to fit properly though, instead I trawled marketplace for a bikini! (well clothes but settled on bikini), I am sure clothes fit fine if you fiddle, but my nipples were hanging out all over.   I was over the moon to find that Zoul Creations had appliers for their skins for just $L50!!!  BARGAIN!

Surround yourself with those that bloom... Up Close and Personal

A bunch of cute stuffs, mostly for FLF and upcoming Gatchas but all soooo beautiful and well done!  Well I won’t waffle, I know people don’t read it :D

Find me a Home

I can’t ever stay in one home for long, infact I am in a constant state of “moving”… I can’t settle, I rez, I unrez, I derez, I rerez… I just don’t know how to decorate, so I stay in a state of disarray, I have just rezzed another skybox, and it’s already itty bitty, but it’s how I roll..

Find me a Home

You will need to click through to see a bigger picture, but I have taken three wide shots of the GORGEOUS new Nicholaston Skybox from Theosophy, and a few closer shots of items I’ve decided I must be around and live with, no matter how much my decor is a mish mash!

The skybox I cannot recommend highly enough, it comes with a HUD that allows you to change ceiling, brick, doorway and event make an accent wall, UGH it’s so effin adorable, my only gripe is that it’s not bigger with rooms to decorate!  Or you know, rooms to ignore decorating.

There are so many wonderful furniture makers out there, it’s hard to know where to start, I have tons to wade through but included in my decorating at the moment are Trompe Loeil with the most splendid fireplace with candles and drape, and the gorgeous birdcage seat… these items are available at FaMESHed… Frogstar with the Backyard Dancefloor, which I used at the back doors of the skybox as an extended patio, complete with a new grapevine plant from Botanical!  Collage provided me with the much needed coffee bar set, and the sweet heart frame decor.  What Next is my go to place for cute items that are well made, this new bench is just that, put it next to the epic birdcage from Trompe and UGH. LOVE.  Finally some Crystal Lamps from Kuro, simple hanging lights with on and off functionality in gorgeous crystal colours.   I bunched a few of them together for a lovely look.

I did have a LoTD to go with this, but I decided to leave that until tomorrow, when I’ll bring you goodies from Lark (who also make epic furniture items), Truth and L Warwick plus some more! YAY!

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.
