Just a quick lil blog post today, I’ve been off mucking out Kennels at the local Animal Shelter so I am BEAT.. but I wanted a little relaxation so decided to play dress up for a bit!
This Skeletorn Bikini is from Epic and is at this round of Perfect Wardrobe! It comes in 8 delectable colours and is fully mesh with all standard sizes! You do get a texture bikini top too, and of course, you get mesh boob enhancers too like with most items from Epic! Jade has done a wonderful job, and I did giggle a bit that the skull eyes are on the boobs and the mouth on the crotch, I am easily amused, no!? Make sure you check them out while they’re at Perfect Wardrobe! The skin I am wearing is still the Pink Fuel Ghost skin from The Arcade, and the hair is one of the rare Clawtooth Unicorn Dips that the lovely Lexi Morgan so kindly sold me!!! I AM IN LOOOOVE! I still need to get back to The Arcade, but my wallet is screaming at me… don’t worry, it never wins.
The Lavender Hill Hunt is still going, and CIRCA provide some lovely goodies. This Shadow Box Table and Pouffe are just lovely, the Table is so unique and I’ve included a couple of close ups of inside the box, I did try and make it bigger to live in it, but it’s no modify … but I zoomed and look at all the gorgeous detail! The cute wishing well, the minute little bird and the tufts of lavender, trees and butterflies buzzing around. The Pouffe comes with many poses, mostly sitting ones but that works well for me. The skybox you can see me sitting in with my new goodies is from Scarlet Creative. WOO!
Ok, TV time! <3

Yes! Another Circa post, I am trying to play CATCH UP!
I had to blog these, because they are from The Retreat and they are all currently $L50, so you have to go and get them before it’s too late!!! *PANICFACE*. I picked up all of the items, but my inventory seems to have eaten one of them, so you will see three of the items available here, the other one.. well… you won’t!
First we have a gorgeous skybox, and while the items aren’t mesh they are still super high quality and sooooo lovely, they aren’t huge in prims either. It’s a really spacious little number, perfect for a little hideaway with princess pink walls and a tiny little garden out the front, by the window. The lanterns also flickr on and off, it’s a really nice little touch to a perfect little pretty skybox!
Also available are these lovely items below. The Sakura Blossom Table and “De Lovely” Candlestick. Both items come with 2 in a pack and look at the table! SO PRETTY and it matches the skybox perfectly. The candlestick is really sweet, but I wish it was in a pink colour so it matched my new box and table, but hey… it’s lovely just the way it is!

Circa is one of those stores that you just can’t get enough of…. here is their Four Walls item…
The Four Walls hunt carries on until the 31st of January and if you haven’t done it yet, you really should! This is one of the many things that will blow your socks off! The items are set for sale for a mere $L20, which is worth it any way you look it, and Circas happened to be this gorgeous Infinity Cloud Studio. It’s an open space concept type dealio, which I happen to love anyway, surround on all sides by glass.. well mostly. It has a couple partitions and 3 skylights that let a really reasonable amount of light in. You walk up the steps and you see the first, main, open plan area with a gorgeous wooden floor detail, then you see the two smaller rooms off to the left and right, one of them has pretty coloured glass too! YAY!
Do remember to do the hunt before it finishes, you’ll cry if you don’t! and go to Circa and check out their other items too, you won’t be sorry!
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

.. and what better to warm your cockles than a new round of C88?! I’ve mixed and matched a few items here, so bear with me (I also used the new LL Beta Viewer to try out pics, not convinced yet but who knows, I like being to use ambient occlusion again!)
I found a doorway, was it to Narnia? It was to MY Narnia, or was that Nirvana? I wish it was THE Nirvana, but ho hum, you can’t work miracles, or can you?
This is my new, and wonderful home, the one the door leads to, or from.. depends on which way you’re going, I suppose. It’s the new Frostbite Cottage from Trompe Loeil for this months Collabor88 and boy oh boy, it’s a beaut! It’s mesh (obvs) and CUTE. LOOK AT IT. It’s not huge inside, more like a hideaway cabin, but I love that it comes with it’s own fresh snow and snow covered pine trees, and inside a beautiful fire to warm you up! I don’t think I’ll ever get enough of Trompe Loeil, I almost squee’d my pants when I saw this, true story.
Circa also have a lot of hoilday items out at the minute, including an advent calender too! This fireside table and comfy looking chair are among my favourite of the larger items, so I positioned them careful so I could stare out of the window, incase there were.. you know.. vampires or wolves about…
so I could just get naked and wait.. figure out how to protect myself.
Circa meets Trompe Loeil here! The other C88 items from the Trompe include chairs, and a loveseat, in various colours to match the palette. They are comfy, and gorgeous and are definitely something you want in your little loveshack or getaway. I paired them up with a cute frosted mirror, and a few hanging pine decorations as well as a celestial side table and a noel candle decoration item from Circa! I couldn’t find my table, so it lives on the floor, you’ll understand, right? You have to visit both C88 and Circa to get your hands on these babies!
Here is a little something I threw together with some close ups of the gorgeous array of Circa going on in my Frostbite Cottage! You’ll agree it’s all adorable and it’s the little touches that make it worthwhile!
Now onto my other fave thing.. My C88 LoTD!!! I do love when a new round starts and I can play dress up for a while, especially because I love everything at C88, always, without exception (ok a few times there are exceptions, but not often!). Fashionably Dead came up with a GREAT item/s this time around! You get cute lil collared long sleeve dresses and Sweaters that fit over them! LIKE SNUG FIT!! Ugh so in love, you can wear as separates too, but I love that these fit together like a jigsaw, LOVE! I chose the yellowy colour and paired it with a black sweater, to compliment my Vail boots from Hucci! Shown here in Midnight, also available in Alpine, that is referring to the fur colour! Also worn is one of the 2 new Wasabi Pills styles. This is version 2, which comes in a lil pony, version 1 is free flowing down your back! Both very gorgeous.
Also worn are the gorgeous mesh La Gyo earrings, and of course, one of the new 3 Frostbite Glam Affair Skins! La Gyo have various items out for your perusal, but I love these earrings! So cute and colour change too! YAY! The skins, as you can imagine, made me fall in love. You can get the three looks shown below, I don’t know how you’d manage just one tho! I wouldn’t be able to resist the rosy cheeks, the icey eyes or the kissable gloss on any of the three!
More to come on Collabor88, but I hope you liked the above items for now! Except this tree, which is so cute it deserves to be here (Circa.. go! NOW!)

I have never been to happy to see a Thursday! I have had a hectic week and today I got an extra 20 mins in bed! It’s a lifesaver, I tell you!
Anyway, I hopped right onto SL because I knew what I wanted to blog this morning. THIS ADORABLE SUBSCRIBO GIFT FROM CANDYDOLL!!!! YES. IT DESERVES CAPS!!!
This skin, oh my gawd! It’s soooo adorable! It comes in just the tone you see (shh, it’s free!!) and comes with PANDA MOUTH!!! I had tons of fun doing these silly face pics to show you how much you can abuse the panda face and make silly looks! All you need to do is join the Subscriber group, it doesn’t even take an LL group space up! GO GO GO GO GO!
Fall is coming.. and our sim is being decorated atm, because I cannot landscape or decorate for the LIFE of me, but Circa has a couple fally type things out! This Chinese Lantern Tree is available at the Cupcakes “Fall in the Air” Event and is a mere $L10! The wheelbarrow is available for H & G Designer Warehouse amongst other things and it’s sooo cute! Full of harvest fruit, a sweet lil bird and leaves around the bottom to make it a perfect fall accessory!
Back later hopefully <3
