Winter is coming… bitches!

Well that isn’t very PG of me, but there you go!  A little wintery look of the day and homey type picture today for you.

Winter is coming... bitches!

I love winter, both in RL and SL, but I suck butts at decorating for the seasons, I really really do!   I changed my skybox to snow and set up a few bits and was like aww, it’s kinda cozy!   The trees are from both Botanical and Trompe Loeil and botanical, the huge kick ass tree which you can only really see the trunk of, and the skinny fir in the middle are older Botanical items, and the other two are two of the many available at FaMESHed from Trompe!  They come in plain and snow, and with and without lights, both scripted and non scripted, THE LIGHTS FLASH, YO!   Also seen is one of the Igloos from What Next, out now at The Arcade, this is one of the rares, but there are ooooodles more, they come with singles and couples poses are are just scrummy.   The snow people are actually a fair few years old and are from the very loved and much missed Artilleri.

LoTD - Fameshed Style - Take Two!

My LoTD is inspired by the onslaught of Winter. A cute yet cozy Trench from Cracked Mirror for FaMESHed this round, this is the Teal but it’s available in other colours too, the perfect fit and wonderfully made and textured, definitely a coat for all seasons, not just Winter!   I paired it with another FaMESHed item, the Sneja Boots from Mutresse. OH EM GEE, these boots!? AWESOME!  They are chunky heeled knee highs that pack a serious punch. (or kick).  They come with a HUD with SO MANY OPTIONS, you can change various parts of the boot, as shown by the silver/black combo above, and the buckles and heels/soles too.     With 9 customise ready parts and 13 leathers to choose from, that’s a LOT of boots you can make up! SWEET!

Also shown is the group gift from Truth for the month, a cute little up do with a braid at the front, and the skin is Glam Affair, pose is from Adorkable, and body parts by SLink! HUZZAH!

I Walk on Water

Shoetopia 2013 - Coming November 15th!SHOETOPIA! It’s almost upon us! I was lucky enough to get early access and I can say it’s a stunning area with wonderful goodies and all for such a fantastic cause. Proceeds will go to Soles4Souls and will help the poor people out in the Philippines that are going through so much right now, so I am happily going to spend a penny or a thousand! I am only bringing you a little sneak peek today, but I have already had a quick walk around and picked up some fabulous goodies, so expect many, many more!

Let’s take a quick look at the venue first! So airy and light! BEAUTIFUL!

Shoetopia - 1

Below you can see the little sneaky peek!  High feet from SLink!  Yep these bad boys will make some stiletto lovers happy when people start coming out with shoes, or they just want to stand on the very tippiest of toes!   I am in love, I was skeptical about feet at first, and hands, and anything else body part related but I am soooo embracing it lately, and these may become my fave bare feet for a while, there is something so cute about tip toes.

SLink @ Shoetopia  | Half Deer

Also shown are the absolutely ADORABLE Flowerhead Goldfish from Half Deer for the Water Lantern Festival.  They come in 5 different types each with 2 rezzable sizes and also a necklace!!! How lovely is that?! It’s also a gorgeous sim and a wonderful place for pictures, although I wanted to prance about naked so I stayed at home :P

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!

Picnic on the Beach

Hey guise, it’s a beachy kinda a day again, this time with an added picnic and of course my LoTD!

A Beachy Picnic Kinda Day!

Well as you can see (and you will probably need to click bigger again) I am alll alonnneeee at my  beachy picnic!  Waiting for someone (cough *ayden* cough) to sweep me off my feet, or actually I’d rather he just shove strawberries in my face!  The entire layout of the picnic you can see are Elates! items for The Arcade, you have a chance to win all of what you see and more, the open picnic basket is the rare item and everything is so well crafted and textured, I love that for this one it doesn’t really matter too much if you get doubles for some of the items, as you always want more sandwiches and strawberries, right?!   In the background you can see the gorgeous Lifeguard Tower from Breno that is available at this month’s The Garden (from TLC) and you can also have your own little picnic atop there too as you get a blanket and glasses and all sorts!   I really love how simple but striking an item this is, I always love that about Breno!

LoTD - 16/06/13 - Ducknipple SLX Style!

This is the outfit I chose for my lonesome picnic and it’s a Ducknipple SLX Outfit Outlet special! Only $L95 for everything you see accessory and clothing wise, and plus some I didn’t wear.   The reason for the good pricing is that it’s template based, but I am completely ok with that as the quality is fab and for that price you can’t grumble! Noobs never have to look like noobs again!   The shoes come with a HUD where you can change skin and nail colours and you get a HUD with the dress where you can choose from five vibrant colours, huzzah!  My pose is from Adorkable which has now closed it’s doors but is still available on the Marketplace.

My skin is from Essences and is the new Wednesday in Ivory tone/blonde brows… such a sweet looking skin, I always love Inka’s eye for detail and stuff, and my hair is from D!va and is a Collabor88 item.  As usual (well mostly) my eyes are from IKON! and are from the Numerology Event! YAY!

Daydreaming Island

Chez Moi always has such GORGEOUS stuff, I don’t know why I haven’t featured it more!  But I am happy today to bring you Daydreaming Island :D

Chez Moi! Daydreaming Island

A lovely little Island getaway, not overly primmy and won’t take up tons of space, and the bonus is it comes with SO many poses! Whether you want singles, couples or even fun fishing poses (complete with copiable rods) this definitely has it all.   You can yoga on the beach, smooch against a tree, bathe in the luscious water as well as much MUCH more.  Want a nap? You have a hammock!  Want a boat, well you can see one, can’t you!   Just want some nice scenery, this has it!   It’s a really really pretty piece that I know will make a welcome addition to ANY beach.

It’s top notch! *thumbs up from this girl*

Meeroos @ Fantasy Faire!

Hey you guiiiiiise, Fantasy Faire is nearly upon us again! (all details can be found here) and the lovely Meeroo’s peeps will have some new and exciting stuff out and so much donation thingers! YAY!

Meeroos @ Fantasy Faire 2

As an Official Blogger, I got given a handful of stores to blog and Meeroos was one of them! Now, I have dabbled with Meeroos, but many moons ago, I loved them then but my attention with SL waned a bit and I couldn’t justify them any longer, but I was always in love with them!  The little noises they make, the way they look, the way they breed and the cute things about them are just endless… but I was lucky enough to get a peek at a Nocturnal pack!

Meeroos will be focusing on actual Meeroos and new, exciting plants at the Fair!   You can see above that I got a lovely sparkly Geode (that you can keep out for decoration!) and opened it all up and out popped my nest, my food and my home stump, in the background you can see the plants lingering.

Meeroos @ Fantasy Faire 1

I coaxed out my CUTEEEE Meeroo and IT WAS A BOY!  A really cute one! I love the little light on his head, it goes off when he’s asleep! HOW CUTE IS THAT?! OMG I CANNOT EVEN.    I can feel myself getting suckered back in already, slowwwwlly and surely.    I love the little mushroom instead of a tree stump too, and the flood is all glowly and gorgeous!… as you can see it emerges so small and cute, how  can you resist? I know I won’t be able to, or will I?  I know I don’t want to and i’ve been thinking about getting pets again and these are migghhhtyyyy tempting!!!   I may swing by the Fantasy Faire and check them out,  I’ll get rid of all my lindens first tho I know what’s  going to happen, i’ll end up spreadsheeting 50 meeroos again >.> YEAH I SPREADSHEET THINGS, I’M CUTE OK! I CAN BE CUTE AND GEEKY!

Meeroos @ Fantasy Faire

This is a close up of just TWO of the plants you can find, a little venus fly eating trap type and a thistle!  They are copiable (at least these ones were) so you can make your land all pretty and stuff, and comfy for your cute lil meeroos!

Remember Meeroos are supporting RFL at FF with LOTS of vendors all at 100%!!  So make sure if you love your cute little Meeroos or even want some landscaping stuff, this is the place to check when it opens on the 20th!

Bzz Bzz

BZZ MOFOS! It’s that time again, Bees Through the Seasons is coming up to it’s 2nd go and this time is just as stunning as the first! Let’s take a little look, shall we?

Bees Through the Seasons - Take 2!

In this picture, you see a gorgeous Wheelbarrow prop (comes with poses) from Olive!   It’s so cute and I imagine you can take a gorgeous picture with some friends, sadly I have none. OK that’s not true, but nobody online that I could drag into the picture with me :P… anyway, it comes in ooooodles of colours, so it can match your garden decor just wonderfully.    Also available is this watering can prop, it comes with l and r handed versions and a bunch of poses, so you can water your flowers looking sexy and sassy!    Also available is this lovely dress from Baiastice, it’s available in many colours, this is Timberwolf (reminded me of Timberlake so of COURSE I had to drape it all over my naked self).   A really flowey, gorgeous short dress, perfect for doing a bit of gardening in… OBVIOUSLY!

Also released is the full line of Mya from Belleza!    Available in various tones, I am showcasing the Pale!   I’m showing all 12 makeups below with no added tattoo layers or what not.   As you can see it’s a beautiful, smooth and gorgeous skin, each and every one of them!   The lips are so kissable (someone kiss me, thx)… the eye makeups always impress me as they’re so clear and pretty.   You can see the variety of makeups with pinks, oranges, beiges and reds all thrown in, cateyes, smokey eyes and minimal eyes with a lick of liner… something for everyone, RIGHT?!

Whatever Next?!

Or just What Next.   Another Pose Fair post with a bit of FaMESHed in there too!!   A lovely summery type picture today, I am bored of snow now, yep.  I went there.

What Next @ PF13 & MORE!

Do click through for a bigger picture! I took it super large so you can see details.    The swing set comes with both singles and couples, alas I am usually alone in world so you get just me!  What Next is one of my fave stores for pose props and just in general, everything is always so well made and animated, with great textures and always makes your house/land look fantastic!    This swing doesn’t come with the tree, it comes alone so you an attach it to whatever you want.  If you want to swing from the stars, you now can.   I’m showing 6 poses here, all of which are just gorgeous, and make for wonderful pictures.

What am I wearing whilst on this gorgeous swing?!  Well, the new dress from Rebel Hope is wrapped around my body, it’s out at FaMESHed now in a range of colours, but I fancied being a bit green today, so that’s what I chose.  It’s a maxi dress with a criss cross patterned front and spaghetti straps.   The hair is also at FaMESHed and is from Wasabi Pills.  A pretty shoulder length style with blunt asymmetrical fringe that frames the face just gorgeously!  Well worth a stop at FaMESHed as ALWAYS, not only for these two things but the array of other great goodies on offer.

Also worn is the Emmy skin from Cupcakes, a lovely new skin with a fresh looking pastel face.  Well I mean the makeup is pastel, obvs not the face.   A beautiful skin as usual from Cupcakes!   Also if you zoom in close enough the new Group Gift Eyes from Insufferable Dastard are in there. YUMMY!

I am now le tired and I am going couchward bound <3

Sunday Sunday

A lazy Sunday, at that.  It’s Mothering Sunday here in the UK, so I’ve been doing family related things, then decided I’d like to pop on and just do a little blog about what my ideal Sunday in SL would be like, sorta.  Click through for larger pictures.

Sunday Relaxation

This gorgeous set from Cheeky Pea is out for FaMESHed still, so you need to make sure you nab it, the Sara Garden Set comes in both PG and Adult versions, and you can choose from 3 patterns and colours, so you can fit your outside decor around it perfectly, or fit it around that…. whatever!   I absolutely LOVE the little shelter with the day bed that is made out of brightly coloured doors, recycling in SL at it’s finest, ladies and gentlesirs!   You also get a wearable picnic basket and lots of little odds and sods that make this a wonderful addition to your family based items (the PG version has kids animations) or if you’re a bit of an outdoorsy public display of affection types, the adult version is for you!

Treehouse over Troubled Waters

Trompe Loeil recently released a gorgeous treehouse, I have and old old OLD old treehouse of cory’s that I adored, this mesh version is just perfection.  It’s really spacious and the texturing is just delightful.    It comes with the tree detail you can see coming up through the bottom and through the sides, as well as stairs on either side, and because it’s on stilts it is a perfect house to plonk in water too!  I call this my Treehouse over Trouble Waters, as the look is a bit gloomy and stormy, and is how I feel about a few SL things, but let’s face it… it makes a wonderful picture with either a bright, or murky background and I know you are all going to want to own one, or at least.. you should!

Enjoy the rest of your Sunday, peeps!

Circa for Cold Winter Nights Hunt!

I have sooo much Event blogging to catch up on, being back at RL work is kicking my butt… but I have managed to nab a picture to post today!

Circa for Cold Winter Nights Hunt!

There are so many awesome goodies in this hunt, as well a the Four Walls hunt that I blogged about just the other day (more posts coming, promise!) and these are just a couple!   The Lampost and Bench are Circa’s offering to the hunt, and are beautiful.

The bench includes 12 poses, both male, female and couples, all you need to do is take a seat and touch the left or right area of the bench to get the menu to pop up and BAM… change your shiz!   Not only does the bench come with poses, it comes with falling snow option! If you touch the baked on shadow (hidden here because you know, in world shadows) you can turn the particles on and off, you may see one at the front of the picture!  So if you haven’t started the hunt yet, make sure you do!   Circa is near the end, but you can check out the full list and details here, along with SLURLS!
