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!

..Willis is back with, something something something… PLEASE CLICK ON THE PICS FOR A LARGER ONE!
Yep! New Collabor88 is now OPEN! It’s full of wonderous goodies and this time the bloggers were asked to give their help/choices in a palette, I hope you like it! I bring you a quick post with the delectable items from both Trompe Loeil and Cheeky Pea!
This is the gorgeous Newport Beach Cottage from Trompe Loeil, it’s fully Mesh and covers a 17×34 footprint with a land impact of 96. This gorgeous two story beach cottage comes with home control centre, privacy windows and locking doors, infact you have options to choose from with your blinds etc, so you can be as private or voyeuristic as you like! It’s available in five exterior colours and is simply divine.
As you can see it’s not HUGE, but it’s plenty spacious for what anyone could need, there lovely wall of windows and a back porch that you can sit and look out of forever, and of course there is a set of doors so you can wander in and out gazing at the view. The house itself sits on elevated pillars, and you have two entrances/exits to get into the gorgeous indoors, and once you’re in, you probably won’t want to leave! It’s full of windows so lets lots of light in and upstairs is the perfect area for a love nest, a general hangout area or your own personal office, the choices are endless. It’s something you will want to own and it’s set out at an AMAZING $L288. Yep!
I decided to fill one of my little nooks with the divine Ansel Set from Cheeky Pea. The set comes with various bits and pieces of original mesh items all at different land impact, but nothing massive! You get a choice of PG or Adult Sofa/Chair and the Sofa comes with 21 Single Animations, 5 Friend Animations, 21 Couple/Cuddle Animations, and 40 Adult animations (in adult version) including MF, MM, FF, and MMF/FFM and includes self rezzing and wearable props for that extra touch.
I rezzed everything to show you what there is and took a lil few closeups of each. The work on these items, as always, is amazing and my fave has to be the mini terrarium of the Beetlejuice House!!! How adorable is THAT???
TP to Collabor88 and purchase these wonderous items TODAY!
DIGS have some awesome Christmas stuff out just in time for the holidays. This Northelyn Christmas Tree comes in Silver, Gold and Red! Of course the colours are the ornaments and the little rug. It comes with control for the lights as well so you can turn them from blinking to static, and back again! I think that’s a really lovely touch and I love that about lights in RL, the blinking! Also released are these cute little Solveig Candle Holders! They come in a set of 7 and are all scripted with a one click on and off function to turn the realistic flames on and off, as you can see they give off a lovely glow! Such cute miniature houses! The skybox I am standing in was the last Lazy Sunday offering from Cheeky Pea and is a really cute little space with baked on shadows!
Of course some of my baubles were too big for the tree, that’s because Luna of Bang! made her balls massive! *insert troll face here*. This cute little set of poses come with a mesh oversized bauble as a prop, I had fun making goofy faces trying to ram it into the tree! You may have seen my coat and boots all over teh feeds already, they are from G-Field and are new out and are just SPLENDID! They have a ton of options you can change and fiddle with and they both come in an array of colours. I picked up pink and black for the coat! They are changed by HUD too, so no million pieces of clothing in your inventory, yay! Also worn is the upcoming hair from MINA for My Attic at the Deck and let me tell you she is BEAUTIFUL! A neat, ladylike updo in all the usual colours complete with resize options on the HUD, these blunt cut bangs are just perfect!

Nope, not with Beef, or Pork.. infact not a roast at all, but again I lacked with imagination for the titles of my blog.
So, as already stated previously a new round of C88 is open! Today’s featured item/set from there is the gorgeous and HUGE Cheeky Pea Chestnut Winter Camp Set! No picture/s I could take could ever do this set justice, so you are just going to have to deal with my crappy ones, i’m afraid. Isla has gone above and beyond with this set, and the great thing is every piece could work on it’s own too! You get an Igloo both lighted and unlighted, several colours of sledge, a double sleeping bag, single sleeping bags in blue and pink, various logs (pg and adult), a campfire and to top it all off, a kettle!
The sleeping bags are so cute, they cover you up when you get inside!!! The sleds are animated, so you can ride it (them!.. a few colours!), and the igloo has animations too!!! Infact on the lower picture you might see my legs popping out, I forgot I was there . I love that the logs are pg and adult too, not only can you keep your friends warm on a winter night with huddling up, if you’re alone you can also do the do in the snow too! Who doesn’t want their bits and bobs to get cold just to warm them up again? I KNOW I DO! The set is a steal, go, now.
A few other new releases! We have three new hairs from Truth, a shoulder length style with wooshy bangs, a longer, ponytail style do, and an updo. Biance, Moxie and Chyna are all gorgeous styles that each bring their own special beat of the drum to the table. Whether you want to look sexy, sensual or downright cute, either of these three can help you out! The dresses I am wearing are from Cute Poison for Twisted Krissmuss, cute and stripey, the texture is just yummy! The necklace, also from Cute Poison is the most adorable Rainbow Prism style! It’s for Forgotten Closet’s new round, so make sure you check that out. Also, a simple Snakebite style piercing that will be out in store super soon, incase you don’t like a lot of metal on your face, but wanted a bit, this is for you!
Now, I have some Mince Pies to release from the clutches of the oven, BAI!

Hellloooooo!! I am desperately trying to catch up on my blogging, how can someone blog once a day and still feel behind!? Because people release so many wonderful items! My blog folder is a mile long, so this post is going to be kinda huuuuuge! I’ll keep the wiffle waffle to minimum incase you actually do read the post, and just throw pictures of myself at you
First we will start with a simple Look of the Day! Sakide have this lovely Frost outfit out, and there is a matching mens set too (sans skirt ), it’s mesh, it’s pretty and intricate lace, it’s just lovely! It comes with mittens and scarf and of course with various sizes of mesh skirt/collar etc. I’m also wearing the gorgeous new PXL VIP Skin! Faith Old Hollywood is a grey skin with a gorgeous pop of ruby red lips, perfect for your monochrome shots, which I kinda achieved here, except with the lips and hair! The hair is also new from Lamb, one of two fantastic styles!
Over at Pixel Mode, now Tya has finished building the Oz sim (blogged just before this post – Strangelings!) she has started releasing again! I spoke to her last night in world and she said she wanted to get some holiday releases out, and just look! SO MANY SCARVES.. and Mittens! CUTE MITTENS! The first picture showcases the colours available in both the mittens and scarves, the basic, no frills colours… just knitted (or suede for the mittens) goodness!
This picture showcases the mittens in all their meshy glory, and the not so plain scarves! There are stripes, leopard spots and checks in a variety of colours. I really love these scarves, they are simple but do the job wonderfully, they also come in 5 sizes, which I didn’t realise before I’d shrunk my chest, so if you’re a bigger chested lady, don’t worry, this is the smallest size and my chest was set to around 30, and there are four bigger sizes, yay! The mittens are just lovely, the texturing is amazing and the colours are so adorable! I love the pastels. YAY PM!
After I begrudingly removed my PXL skin (however creepy does that sound!?) I popped on my new Essences Skin, this will be available at the brand new TDR Fusion and oh em gee, gorgeous!! I am wearing the other new Lamb hair in this one and a new mesh dress from Phosphenes, shown here in just two of the four colour available, the dress oozes cute and innocent… of course what it’s doing on me, I don’t know, I am guessing I am totally on the naughty list this year!
Here are the three makeups you get with the skin, you also get a variety of blushes too . I really REALLY love this skin, it’s so smooth and natural looking, even with the makeups, it’s just one of those skins that you feel at home in, ya know? Inka is coming on in leaps and bounds with her skin work and this shows it. You get a variety of brows too, only three shown here, and I didn’t wear lashes so you could get a better look! GORGEOUS!
Finally! Cheeky Pea and HANDverk have these wonderful Yule items out at the new Mens Department! I must admit, I’ve never been before.. I think I’ve been missing out! Not everything is for the boys (sorry guys, we like to muscle in where we can), and I must now go EVERY time! This mesh Antler Tree is just… the best tree EVER! Isla does such great work, and this is no exception… I feel it will take pride of place in ALL my SLhouses this year. Also something I fell in love with, the Cardboard Head from HANDverk! LOOK! ITS SO CUTE!! It comes in traditional cardboard with wreath, of this minimalistic white one with just one bauble, the reflection of the head is in the bauble too! I love little details like that, well done HANDverk!
All poses used are from aDORKable Poses, one of the best posers on the grid, in the loveliest way! <3
*SLURLS, if available, are on the Store Locations Page <3
..and there are still so many things to buy!!
The new round of FAIR is almost upon us, peeps and let me tell you there are some FANTASTIC items this time around, as with every other time! Two of my fave items so far to come out of there have to be this fantastic shelf from Cheeky Pea, and the dress from Geometry. I can’t get enough of this shelf, srsly. It’s a bit larger than I expected it to be but if I used my noddle and noticed all the awesome stuff on it, I’d have realised! More about the shelf below, let’s focus a bit on the dress. It’s SO pretty! I chose the Coral colour to wear, but it’s available in many more, a really slinky but well covered up piece that leaves the imagination ticking but makes you feel incredibly sexy too!
I wore a couple of accessories from HANDverk with my look, their recent release has been centered around Artists goods, ranging from an Easel to a Clutch, these divine Earrings and now this Necklace! These works of art are truly just that, works of art. The earrings are little paintbrushes and are available to match the colours of the other releases, and they are only at FaMESHed at the moment, the necklace has been released for L’Accessories, and it’s a corded style necklace, with the palatte holding it together. I chose Autumn colours, but there are few to choose from and I doubt you will be disappointed!
Back to the shelf! LOOK AT IT! I put together a small collage of the awesome details you can find there. A row of poloroids for you to fill in with your own memories, including a cute spare peg, jars sliding towards the end of hte shelf, books galore, a lamp that has a plug attached below the shelf to the wall and of course, in a certain state, horseshoes! It’s full of wonderful little finds and it’s a great centrepiece/discussions piece for any room of the house! Maybe no the toilet tho.
Finally, nine… yes NINE new hairs from Alice Project for Around the World! A variation of styles from long to short, sleek to a bit more bouffant. These styles work on the Infinity System but each hair comes with a Mini HUD so you get a great option of colours including solids, two-tones and dipped! I can’t pinpoint my fave because I love them all! Alice has gone to a lot of work for these event, and that is clear with these gorgeous styles. Also worn in the picture is the Haste MicroKini available for Around the World!

So, one of a few posts today, I hope! As Sunday is usually my laziest day, although I do have to play GW2 at some point amongst housework and motherly/gfly duties … this one focuses on a few bits for the home! I have a tonnnn of stuff to blog over the next week or so, I usually try and blog everything as soon as I get it but ugh man, a) it’s hard work and b) it’s spam CITY for you guys.. so I am trying to slow down a bit, not worry about rushing etc!
ANYWAY.. here are some more goodies from FAIR and a sneaky peek at a lil bit of Zodiac!
First off we have the Morning Light Cupboard Beds from Trompe Loeil for FAIR! Cory was inspired by the hour of 9AM (I wish I were still in bed at 9am *swaps lives*), as usual with most TL stuff, it is available in PG and Adult versions, in a choice of FIVE fabric/window pairings! It’s only a measley 7 prims land impact and dependant on what version you buy is full of animations! In the PG there are 21 sleeping and couples cuddles, and in the Adult version there are 18 erotic singles and duos (masturbation included lolol). In this picture I am also wearing the Paper Doll FAIR item too! A really cute PJ set and one of Truth’s new hairs, which I will blog about later
Next we have the Cheeky Pea item for FAIR. This is the Earnst TV! It comes as you see it, but with 6 different colour options and 4 screen options, 2 are animated to boot! This is such a gorgeous, vintage item and with a PROPER PLUG!!! It will fit nicely into any room/decor, I think… It looks a bit lonesome in my corner, I’ll have to get buying/furnishing! Some really gorgeous original mesh!
Last but not least, this months Zodiac is LIBRA! Yep, I said yesterday I hoped there were scales and there are scales (of different varieties) a plenty! These are the What Next scales and as usual with WN stuff, they are exemplary! They are GORGEOUS! Not only do they come in various colours to match your kitchen decor, they are clickable to add/take away the flour! THAT IS SO CUTE!!!
SLURLS on the STORE LOCATION Page! <3
I am still wading through my C88 haul, not to mention other releases! and I decided it was time I rezzed the gorgeous Cheeky Pea & Pilot Backyard Cinema! A collab item from both Isla and Kaz it stands out a mile as a timeless classic, imo!
It comes with loungers, ottomans, pouffes, lights, trees, screen and refreshment sidetables and THEN some! You can choose from a PG or Mature set and each set has an array of gorgeous poses, singles, couples, kids, and adult (dependent on version). It’s M/C/NT so if you screw it up, NO WORRIES!! You can screw it up again and again and again!
My fav piece has to be the projector… no wait the screen.. NO WAIT I DON’T KNOW! I LOVE IT ALL! You can play your own movies on the screen, which is a bonus, I opted to just stare at a pic of me, cos that’s how I roll.. or that’s the only texture I had to hand that wasn’t someone elses texture and the upload button wouldn’t work.. YOU DECIDE /big brother voice.
Get it ONLY at C88
something or other! I am blogging, not sure if i’ll be around much this weekend, my 4yr old has a “graduation” ceremony at nursery! LOL… so we will be there most of the day! Just a few more bits and bobs I snapped today while I had some “me” time!
First up we have a new skin from My Ugly Dorothy! This is Heather. I’ve shown her in the “Salmon” tone, but you can find two others in store. I love how fresh these skins look, not over processed, just.. natural, blemishes and all! They come with both lip and teeth skin options, and I’ve shown a mix of both. You get tattoo layers for eyebrows too! A really really nice skin for those of you that like a more natural/hand drawn look to your skins, kinda cutsey/young looking, love it on me, although it’s a bit different… I really do think it’s amazing how different a skin can make you look!
Next we have two new Truth hairs! Meet Elsa and Soleil! Elsa is the only mesh style this week, Elsa is just plain ole prims (feels weird saying that!) Really love the side bun on Elsa, very cute looking! Soleil is a lovely hair too, although I found it a bit big on me and had to resize a lil, but it still looked heavy on my head! Really pretty large up do tho, wish I could get my hair to stay like either of these styles all day!! Top is from Ingenue for FLF and is lovely too!
Next we have some Glam Affair goodies! The new TDR just opened up and this is the skin you can find there this time around, GORGEOUS! Really natural looking with some heavy blush and all for just $L70 or something insane (I think it’s that, I just click and buy now like a machine!). The top is also GA, and is available at Collabor88. I found the sizing a bit odd on me, my hands poked out through the sleeves like my arms needed to be longer, but I fiddled and faffed and made it work, because it’s just TOO pretty!
Now, Cheeky Pea and Funky Junk for FLF! I love furniture for FLF, hell, I love anything for FLF! The Cheeky Pea Memories Mirror is gorgeous, it comes in three different styles, and of course you can add your own pics instead of the ones it comes with, you can see me creeping on Isla in this picture . The Funky Junk Vintage Sideboard is another classic too! As you can see i’m leaning toward the drinks. HICCUP!
Finally we have a sneak peak from the Fashion Voodooevent that starts today at 6pm SLT! Belleza is one of the sponsors and has a skin out which is being sold with gorgeous smokey eyes and 5 different lipsticks included as well as smeared mascara on tattoo layers, you get two different mascara tattoos, but I put them together in one of the pics for a more dramatic look, not everything is shown here but a good start! You get cleavage tats/underwear layers too, 5 skin tones are available and each is $L1200
Also there will be Shabby Cat with these wonderful mesh tanks complete with winged skull, and an array of fantastic items from The Plastik, one of which is this skirt, which fit like a fookin GLOVE and I love… as well as more, but I’ll get back on and show you more of those later <3
You can click all the store names to TP to where you can find their items (or the event name!) Happy Friday and have a great weekend, everyone <3
Home and Garden Expo is now OPEN to the public and let me tell you, I already managed to drop about 10k at the place and I haven’t even finished! I love LOVE buying homes and furniture in SL, I just don’t like setting it up, but now I am going to flit between homes because there is SO MUCH GORGEOUSNESS!!! This is just the first of a few blogs about the Expo and I’ll try to witter as little as possible. Will be pic heavy!!
First up we have the house I (and a lot of others) have been waiting for! The GORGEOUS Americana from Funky Junk. Ulaa has outdone herself with this! It comes in 2 versions, with and without attic access and at just under $L2k for the attic access version, it’s a total STEAL! Look how bit it is! With front and back (and side) veranda!
Inside is just so spacious! I don’t know how i’ll ever fill it up, but I will! Below is just a quick see through from the front door, where you can see the work fireplace and grand stairs, through the archway to a smaller space, perfect for an office maybe! and the perfect kitchen space. I didn’t shoot the outdoor conservatory part but it’s bloody awesome!
Upstairs there are four rooms, all very spacious and lovely! Plenty of room on the landing for you to decorate too, and if you click through to see the large pic you can see the attic and the dangling cord for access. SO CUTE! I think this might be my fav home EVER in SL, and I’ve been here 8yrs almost!!! I LOVE YOU ULAA SISTER! You have made my life a much better place, and obvs I mean the house, not your boobs.
Also available, and the RFL item/s is the dock and furniture seen below! They are separate items, so you don’t have to have one with the other, but why you wouldn’t want both is beyond me!! There are a few versions of the dock, and the furniture is copy, I just set up a small set just for me <3
Next to Funky Junk in my fav places to shop, is Cheeky Pea, and I just discovered the VIP group with a whopping 50% off for the few couple of days!!! The items were well worth it before, but now… WOOOO! This is the Coille House, it’s fully mesh and just gorgeous. It comes in two options, a 1 bed and a 3 bed. I opted for the 3 bed, because I am obsessed with more than 1 bedroom (probs cos I own 100 beds). Such a lovely looking house, smaller in scale than the FJ house, but stunning just the same.
It’s empty inside, of course, but Isla has made PERFECT furniture to fit. This is the Kitchen.. not only is it cute beyond words it’s all animated! You can wash your hands, do dishes, cook a meal, stir the meal, sit on the breakfast bench with a cuppa and MORE, I can’t even tell you house loudly I squee’d at this. Beyond gorgeous.
I couldn’t leave without the bathroom too, so I purchased that also. Animated toilet… need I say more? That’s where i’m sitting when I took the top pic, classy as always The sink and bath are also animated, the bath has singles AND couples poses!!! See why I will have to flit between houses now!?!?!?!
I am SO happy with all my my Funky Junk and my Cheeky Pea purchases that I really really TRUELY REALLY urge you to go and look at it and consider buying it, I fell in love immediately and couldn’t say no, how many of you can!?
