Hello everyone! Sorry for the lack of bloggage, but here I am to show you just a few of the goodies available from the wonderful creators that take part in The Challenge SL!
You can click through for a bigger, better picture, but I can tell you right now that EVERYTHING is amazing, I am only really showing a few of the items and I have lots more to share! The skybox itself, of which you can only really see the fantastic walls, is by 22769 Bauwerk! It’s soooo wonderfully grungy and fits the Warehouse theme PERFECTLY. It has a couple of windows, lighting and warehouse doors, it’s going to make a great backdrop for all the photos I want to do in this kind of environment, for sure.
The little chair to the left, The Laptop Chair is by % Furniture, it’s a chair chokka full of poses and is just a simple but effective chair! It’s lovingly crafted out of what looks like rubber bands (or fanbelts? IDK!) and pipes and stuff and it’s industrial furniture at it’s best! The whole desk/boxes combo is from Follow Us and it’s DIVINE! So well made, the clevely hung jacket on the corner of the light, the helmet just resting on it as well as the waste paper basket with scrunched paper and a hot steaming cup of coffee… it’s just so great! The thing I love too is the box it came in, which is the white pallet crate to the left, I kept it out because it fits into the theme perfectly too! and the rezzer is the little toolbox to the right of the picture, EVERYTHING from Follow Us fits perfectly, I just love that.
The final piece of todays puzzle is the wall art from Breno! Find your Bearings is.. you guessed it… a wall art based around bearings!!! With a couple of downlights and a gorgeous wooden frame, this makes the perfect picture for the dark, industrial walls of the skybox, and is just another item from Breno that made me go ASDLJFALD LOVE!
You guys make sure to check out The Challenge before it’s over, until the next time

It is, I don’t lie! LOOK OUTSIDE. IT’S WEDNESDAY, not sure why you need to look outside but do it anyway, then back to me… no can’t even be arsed to finish that. HI GUYS. ITS MY NINTH REZDAY TOO BTW! YAY
Well! FaMESHed is stil l going strong and these gorgeous items from 22769 are still available there! The hot pants and delectable Anushka top come in various colours for your mix match pleasure and they are just lovely, so well made, excellently textured and their stuff is always just worth it! I opted for yellow/green combo cos that’s how I roll, but you might find other combos, THE WORLD IS YOUR OYSTER! I thought I’d wear the Wasabi Pills Sunny hair with it, along with an old FLF Belleza Skin…. Adorkable provided my poses (still a sale going on!) and Sasy Scarborough provided my lovely slink applier nails, you can’t see them but they are OWLS. If you haven’t checked out Flairs HUGE selection of nail appliers, you really bloody should. Sasy is a machineeeee, a lovely sexy one.
Now now NOW! Breno made this awesome house for Collabor88 and I am finally getting around to blogging it! Isn’t it effing gorgeous? You may need to click through and follow the pics for bigger ones for a better shufty, but really look at it! Isn’t it perfect?! Apollo comes with 2 versions, this is the “glassier” version. It may not be for everyone, but I definitely fell in love.
You can see that it’s not MASSIVE inside, but it is big enough for you to live in, it comes with various little nooks, crannies and rooms and even stairs up to a little open loft type space! I love seeing everything that Wolfy releases, I have had his stuff in my sights for a while now and it’s always been fantastic but it just keeps on kicking ass and taking names and if you haven’t ever been to Breno, you are soooo missing out!
Happy Thursday all! A few goodies for you today, the focus of the post being that of The Challenge event that kicked off today with a “Tudor” theme! A little bit different, don’t you think?
“In prayer it is better to have a heart without words than words without a heart. ”
― John Bunyan
The picture above was inspired by the quote above. I believe, not only in prayer, that it is a lovely thing to have a heart that is full of words. Mine may be rambling, they may not always be cheerful and positive, sometimes they are sad, sometimes they are full of awe and love and wonder.. but each word I utter comes from the heart, and each word is honest. I can’t imagine writing hundreds of words that had no feeling, no heart. I am not the worlds best writer, but fill my heart with words any day, over having my words empty of heart. NODNOD.
ANYWAY… that gorgeous hunt of a pergola above is Breno’s offering to The Challenge’s Tudor Theme! It comes with or without curtains and is absolutely stunning. A simple piece, but paired with the right environment and decor, this baby has a hundred uses. I decided to use some Trompe Loeil Swept Bookcakes with mine, along with a Group Gift from Flowey…. I don’t really do “art” but if I did, this is what fell out of my brain whilst trying to take a picture today. Words everywhere… me flying about trying to make sense of them… well I know what I mean, eh!?
22769 Bauwerk, L & K Prefabs and End of Daze also released items today (as did Michigans Shack, but that post will be upcoming!). 22769 Bauwerk gave us an option of skybox or bench (bench not pictured) and it’s a delightful combo. The skybox is so vibrant and rich in colour, and big enough to potter about, and fill with wonder. What a romantic and warm little number, wouldn’t you agree? The gorgeous bed complete with lantern and attached tree is from L & K Prefabs and is just divine. I do love a good whimsical bed, and I love that even with a theme i’d call “super sensible” you still have that touch of magic! The End of Daze item is a bench also, available in various colours, it comes with many animations (as does the bed) both single and couples and is the perfect addition to any smart looking room!
Finally a very quick look at what I was wearing in the Words with Heart picture above. A gorgeous (and very fitting) hair from Lelutka, I can’t keep up with their releases! I think I’m a set behind, but I’ll get there. The dress is new from Immerse, Lily has done it again with a gorgeous, simple dress with puffy sleeves and a slinky high waist skirt. It comes in various colours with gorgeous complimentary duos of colour. I think this one was my fave, I do love a good dusty rose. The skin is from Ploom and is the Gia skin I blogged last week, eyes are from IKON and pose is from Frooti!

Nah, not the sexual kind, the Global Kind. Hottie Cooterati’s new event kicked off and I am here to show you some of the goodies available, as well as some other bits.
Global Domination is an interactive gaming experience where you require a passport, and you need that baby to be stamped! It isn’s a hunt, it’s a challenge. There are varying levels of puzzle and lots of goodies to pick up along the way. You can read more about the ins and outs of it here. The three “Grand” prizes have already been claimed but there is still so much for you to do, win and have fun along the way. Above is the pile of goodies that awaits you, with the lovely Kit to congratulate you. Huzzah!
The entire set above is the prize from Mudhoney. It’s a Madagascar Themed set of awesomeness! The Ottoman is only available as an incentive gift, those are what you get if you buy your passport from that particular vendor, so if you love this, make sure you buy yours from there! Or just buy ALL the passports to get ALL the gifts! Everything else you see in the picture is included in the prize for a completed passport. So much wonderfulness (it’s a word, honest). Things that can work together, or on their own in any room at all. It’s all meshy goodness too, so your land impact isn’t hammered.
Also worn in the picture, and with a closer look above is the gorgeous new set (but also available individually) from 22769 for The Gallery Gift Shop! The body scarf comes in black and white, with the same choices for pants, and they are simply gorgeous! I admit I didn’t try and stuff hair underneath it, but I liked it the way it was. I paired it with a stunning TSG skin that I’ve had for a while and the Gos Barefeet for a simple, fresh look.
Happy Friday, everyone!

Around the World is STILL happening, and this time I bring you 5 unique looks from 22769!
This wonderfully talented store has out an array of items, both male and female, at around the world, ranging from sexy halter neck dresses, to the slinker side of the dress world, gorgeous handkerchief style tops, to the brighest, prettiest dresses I have seen. It really does have something for everyone, in various colours and of course in various sizes.
From L-R we have: Achieng, Eryka, Makeda, Olabisi Top/Leather Skirt and Dziko!! All of them are sooo different and this isn’t even all you can get! I can’t wait to go back and take a closer look, I have a feeling I am going to be VERY poor. I don’t think I have a fave release, although I am quite partial to the Makeda Dress and the Olabisi/Leather Skirt combo for sure. I have tried to make a slightly different look with all of them using a range of hairs from Lamb, LaViere (gorgeous Collabor88 hair!), Wasabi Pills, Exile and Elikatira and the skin we will talk about below!
Please visit and support Around the World, and don’t forget 22769 has 22769MILLION reasons to shop!
Al Vulo finally released a full Eleonor release, I knew I had to have it, because.. well, I just knew. So I didn’t even hesitate, I went, I purchased, I came home, I looked at my linden balance, I cried then I realised it was worth it. The whole fatpack was around $3k, which I think is a great deal as you get 14 skins and various shapes, addon tattoos and options galore including brows, cleavage and stuff.
I just cannot with how pretty the skin is, maybe it just really suits my shape, I don’t know, but I do know that I am in love. You get a nice range of makeups ranging from nude lips to dark reds, ruby reds to pale peaches, eyes that are smokey, eyes that are not, eyes like a peacock, nude eyes… I COULD GO ON, but I won’t. Just go and try them, you won’t be disappointed.
As usual click through to Flickr for larger pics.
That title really doesn’t work, but it’s there, so you’ll have to deal with it!
This gorgeous Piano pose prop is one of !bang’s Cinema item and I am just now getting around to getting it out of my inventory, I thought it would look perfect with my new dress from 22769 and I couldn’t resist trying to take a pic a bit out of my comfort zone AKA: not in my skybox LOL! So I popped it down on my decking and took in the beautiful surroundings, sadly I had to do this all alone *foreveraloneteardrop*, but this Piano is built for two baby! It comes with a variety of poses, and they work for couples too! Lovely jubbly.
I couldn’t justify just leaving that picture without getting a few better snaps of my outfit and ensemble! So… this is the 22469 dress for Zodiac, it comes in four different variations and I fell in LOVE with it as soon as I saw it, it’s so gorgeous and different! I am not a huge “dressy” person, but this… this is fab. I paired it with the new booties available from Decoy, also a Zodiac item, you’ll find a bit more about them at the bottom of the blog! I haven’t taken off my Pink Fuel skin (well I have, but I soon put it back on) from Costume Ball yet.. IT IS SO EFFIN GORGEOUS! I CANNOT DEAL! and I squee’d earlier when Hely posted a teaser of the Costume Ball hair so I have that on too!
The hair comes in two variations, with and without mask, in all the usual colours and gorgeousness. You also get a solitary mask to wear with the without version, but I wanted a clean shot of my face. An absolutely STUNNING hair, and the mask is colour change so you can match it to anything really and it’s glittery. YOU HEAR ME PEEPS? GLITTERY!!! A fantabulous updo for any occasion, but I really do think it tops this look off perfectly.
The booties from Decoy are some stunning pieces of meshwork, they really are! I am amazed more and more each day by what can be done with mesh, and these are no exception! Highly detailed and stunning, they come in three colour choices: Red, Brown and Black, each colour pair has two sipper choices: Regular and Zodiac. The only thing I would change about these shoes, is to have an option of gold or silver zipper detail and studs, I am not a huge gold fan, but that is the most miniscule of detailing and definitely nothing to put me off them! NO!

It’s really not.. but this look is something I imagined (I do lil stories in my head, shup) that I’d look like should I be naked in someones bed, and need to answer the door quickly, or you know.. run away… OR.. I just wanted to get my perfume all over there stuff… not to mark my territory you understand, just to make them smell girly… ANYWAY, enough about my obvious insanity…
So, my gorgeous hair is one of the new do’s from Ploom, which is probably the only thing, along with the Alyona Essences Skin that makes me look super girly in this look, I really have wanted to wear these Handverk boots from FaMESHed for a while now, but I couldn’t think of what to put with them, ok this look isn’t exactly me on a horse or riding a cowboy (hi, any volunteers? I KEED I KEED) but the look i’ve gone for is hodgepodged together chic, rocking it.. AMIRITE???
The jacket is actually a male item, so my boobs had to be flattened but it fits and looks ok, because it’s a Parka, not all Parka’s are fitted, except maybe Peter Parker if you arrange him carefully. ANYWAY, It’s from 22769 for the Mens Dept and all ladies and men should check it out, because as you can see, sometimes the items are totally doable on the opposite sex!
Now.. I really should wander and find some clothes.. or should I?
