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
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*
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!
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.
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!
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 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?
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 … 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?!

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.
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

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.
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!
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!

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!
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!

Most people say heart to that, and it’s true… much like wherever I lay my hat… that’s my home. I struggle in SL to find my “home”, I am one of those people that cannot landscape after 8yrs in SL, I fail at decorating, I buy a new house every week, I want to change seasons like I change underpants (careful there ), back in 2004 I had a 512 mainland plot, that was my home and I loved it, it wasn’t much and it had a stripper pole in the middle of it.. SHUT UP, YOU DON’T KNOW HOW DEPRIVED WE WERE BACK THEN! That was, and always has been my favourite, perhaps because it was my first, or perhaps now because I am always so overwhelmed by the options you have to decorate and landscape and make your home in SL. Never-the-less, I try… but I don’t have anywhere to call home, I don’t have that one place I keep up and decorate around and I want that, so you will come along for the ride while I decorate a millionty and five houses to try and find my home. I may only decorate one room, but hey, you’ll live.
This is the Savannah Cottage Home from Kudzu, a brand I have not been familiar with, but they seem to have a fair few homes to choose from. This is one of the newer, larger homes and I wouldn’t call it a Cottage! Cottages to me are quaint, with a thatched roof and an inglenook with horseshoes hanging on the walls and a roaring fire, at least that’s what my nans cottage was like, this is more like a mansion! It’s a large, open home and comes in at 216 prims. It has 3 bedrooms, 1 bath and a sunroom. I set it up in my Turnips skydome (now updated with a HUD system, peeps! No need for a billion skyboxes anymore!) I put out my A.D.D Andel Lit Trees and my Sways snowmen and I got stuck in.
It’s a fairly spacious affair, like I said, with an open plan feel. The one thing I did not dig were the “main” doors, they were kinda see through, unless I just wasn’t loading right and they just didn’t look right with the house, but that could of been my issue, I couldn’t get on another viewer to test. But as you walk in you are hit with a huge open area with a staircase and a tiled area for you to place a kitchen, and in that tiled area is a little walk in cupboard! SO CUTE! The sunroom is also downstairs and that is the room I decorated. But more about that below. You go up the stairs and you are met with a fair spacious landing area, plenty of room for your pictures and decor! There are then 2 fairly medium sized bedrooms and 1 large, along with a good sized bathroom. It’s a family home, or a home for a couple who want an office and a spare room, or well a singleton that just wants ALL THE SPACE. It’s very pretty and not overly expensive, you should check it out!
Welcome to my sunroom, which I turned into my mini Christmas grotto. I had to rez my What Next Christmas Fireplace, it’s one of my favs! With a roaring (and sometimes spitting) fire, stockings, pinecones, and frame with christmas cards hanging, it’s just divine! I also decided to use the What Next Present Pile! It’s animated with various animations and is a gorgeous photograhy prop, much like a lot of What Next items! My other favourite thing this year might be the Trompe Loeil Tree! It’s so minimalistic that it just had to come out. I wish I had this tree in RL, it would look sparse but be a lot less faff! I chose the colourful option, but the more refined of you might enjoy the gold/silver version. The hanging star lights you also see are from Trompe Loeil and come in many colours and 3 lengths of hanging per colour. I just love them! They make it all so perfect! Circa is still going with it’s Advent countdown, and the cookies that I put out for Santa and the cute little shelf with candy cane covered Cacti are just 2 of the wonderful items you can get from there, as well as the lovely vase of roses with red bow on the fireplace. I am no decor queen, but this does look kinda cosy, I like it.
I am not the worlds greatest landscaper, decorator or blogger of homes and gardenware, but I am going to try it a bit more often, please do shout if you see anything I’m doing super wrong, anything you’d like to see blogged, or just with any hints and tips <3

New trees and wine… blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blahhhh or some such carol.
Together for Sway starts on the 15th and I headed on over today, as a preview blogger to pick up some items, what best to blog first than the lady herselfs items!? Alongside some other purchases I made today.
Botanical has some new Mesh Firs out, there are 4 tree collections in total to choose from: Green Fir, Green Fir with Lights, Snowy Fir and Snowy Fir with Lights, ofc I had to go for the Snowy with Lights because that’s just how I roll! Each set has the option of purchasing either Copy-Mod or Trans-Mod and each set contains 5 trees in varying size. The trees with lights come with 6 colour presets, the ability choose your own 3 colours of light and an optional star at the top! It’s super easy to use, you just click, a menu appears and you go! A happy addition to my collection, yes! The house you can see is the previously featured Trompe Loeil FrostBite Cottage.
Look how pretty the lights make the picture below look! Of course the main focus of this picture are the gorgeous angels available from Sways for Together for Sway! I saw Sway at the landing point and she was so humbled by the community coming together like this and I have to say I agree. These Angels are just so cute! They come in either Sign, Heart or Star sets, and each set has a large, medium and small angel with both brunette and blond hair. They are the perfect accessory to your seasonal decor and are just stunning.
I took a few close ups for you to just take a look at how cute they are, of course the heart is the biggest focus here, because Sway has a lot of heart, and it seems she moved the community to have a lot of heart too.
SLURL for Together with Sway available soon… where you will find a huge array of awesome goodies!
