Breaking into a New Home

I am always putting up houses, half decorating, and tearing them down, it’s just what I do! I couldn’t resist putting up this Wavebreaker house from Trompe Loeil that is out at Collabor88…

Wavebreaker @ Trompe Loeil

It’s a mesh BEAUTY! It comes in two sizes and each are plenty roomy enough, with a little open plan bottom area and side stairs leading to a veranda, another room, and then more stairs leading up to a balcony style bedroom (or whatever you want!)  The texturing is fabulous, as always with Trompe, and the craftmanship matches totally in that percentage! UGH I love it!  So spacey an airey.

My Cosy Little Corner

I haven’t had time to set a bunch of stuff up, but I set myself up a little corner in the “lower deck” as I call it all cozy and cute.   I’ll go from left to rightish and give shout outs to the creators of the awesome!   My chair is from Trompe Loeil again and is the other item at C88, such comfy and cosy chairs and with OODLES of anims.   You can’t QUITE see it because I am a fail face, but there is a ladder light, which is what the stars are dangling from, and it plugs into the wall, that’s from Kuro and is SO GORGEOUS!    My table is from the delectable DIGS, the breakfast tray and heart candles are all from CIRCA, two of my fave stores that make the CUTEST things.

Both the heart frame and star shelf are from Sway’s and are just two of the many wonderful items that Sway has been banging out!  The little bunnies on the coffee table are from Atelier Visconti and are a gacha item, a handful to win and all so cute!  Finally my picture room divider is new from Alouette and is the perfect thing for all your memories, or stealing others memories cos you don’t have any, which is what I did. HUZZAH

It’s the weekend….

hurray! I am finding myself snowed under (not literally sadly) in RL and SL and there are sooo many great SL things happening or coming up!  I find my lives are like buses, nothing comes along for ages then BOOM, busy everywhere!   A little LoTD and a Mini Home post today!

LoTD - Pale Style

I was feeling very pale with today’s LoTD! I popped on the Essences FLF Skin, which is in the ivorie tone, and is a pale beauty, and I slapped on some Wicked Peach nail polish (available 1st Dec) called Frostbite for a bit of a constrast.   I wasn’t sure what I wanted to wear except for the new Cynful Jeans for the Winter Trend 2013 Event.  The Shinny Jeans come in an array of washes, and each pair comes with two length options, one ideal for boots and one shown above with the cuffs.

LoTD - Pale Style - Up Close and Personal

Also worn is the Blah crop top for the Hello Titty Slots Event, I do love a good crop top, I have worn it a bit more modestly with a Luck Inc Tank Dress underneath!   But you can get it in an array of styles and it comes with appliers for teh boobs!   My gorgeous Crochet Necklace is for The Rack from Lark, it comes with a colour change HUD or you can tint the white!  Other goodies include Hair from Exile, Eyes by IKON and shoes by Ingenue, and of course my SLink bits!

I did a little homey post, a sad little affair, I titled It’s a Lonely Christmas.  OH BOO HOO WOE IS ME.   No not really, I just thought it looked fairly minimal!   I just made myself a little festive corner, no doubt I’ll go larger at some point :P

It's a Lonely Christmas

My new shiny couch is from Kuro and is out now for The Challenge, which has a kitsch theme this time!   It’s colour change and comes with SO many options, I rezzed the adult version and noticed some very naughty things :o!   The Cookie Tree is also from Kuro, as are the string lights (which work!!)… Such wonderful items and so cute!     I popped my bottle decor  from Digs on the window sill, they come with a joyous message in various colours, although I like this plain version.    My super cute pictures are from the Geeks and Nerds Fair and are from the Secret Store, and my yinyang shelf is from Sways, as is my crochet look hot water bottle, which is upcoming for The Arcade!  And in a random move, my IeQED Twig Crown, which is out at the Fantasy Collective, I just felt the need for a crown, as you know, sad lonely little scenario BOO HOO!

Lazy, Lovely Sunday

Hi all, been a busy one here, but a little lazy, and lovely bloggage for you here, this time a few bits and bobs from the furniture world!

Snapshot_001

The first little set up is a woody love affair!   I have two sets of items here from two wonderful stores, Kuro and DIGS!   All mesh, all great, ALL of the time!  (well mostly with the mesh, always with the great).   The Conall Chair and Stool and the Wood Table Set were both yesterdays “The Neighbourhood” items.  You can’t get them at their special price now, but you can still get them, and get them you must! So rustic and different.

Snapshot_002

Also more wood, in the shape of this cat lamp that was out at Sways for FLF, who doesn’t want a cat shaped lamp?? WHO??   It seems it was a weekend for awesome furnishings at cheap prices!  Also shown is one of the items from Immerse, discounted today for Lazy Sunday. HUZZAH!

Immerse is such a wonderful store and the owner is a lovely lady who I have been very lucky to get to chat to and she’s back after having to have a bit of a hiatus with a brand new spankin’ store!   Immerse is such a wide range of items kinda store, we have furniture and even clothing, but for now let’s focus on this chair, available in a mixture of colours and each with awesome poses by the fistful, this is definitely a bargain and a half!

These Are a Few of My Favourite Things…

Just a few casual looks for you today, inspired by some fairly new items I’ve come across and made particular friends with. This first outfit is all about the Cynful Isia shorts, which I fell a bit in love with and would love to pull off in the real world, would my thighs not dribble out the bottom. Keeping with the purple theme, I added Senzafine’s cute peasant top and a pretty headband by MONS for good measure. And voila the result.

Senzafine and Cynful

Another of my favourite things this week is Cheeky Pea’s Port Isaac pier, which is a little piece of luxury for those of us who find beach towels a damp and scratchy controversy. The couch can be separated from the pier, too, should you feel so inclined – which I believe to be a good thing, as it would look equally awesome in a living room. I have just the place…

Port Isaac by Cheeky Pea

Below is the outfit I’m wearing at the end of the pier. It’s a simple look that’s easily thrown on when an unexpected tp comes in for a shopping trip, combining the Marlee skirt from R3volt with okkbye’s Summer Tank in grey.

okkbye and R3volt

And here is what I perhaps should have been wearing – my new favourite bikini, by DCNY. Something about the pattern makes my heart happy.

DCNY Denim Bikini

And finally a Somnia ensemble even the name of which make me grin: I’m wearing the Comic Tank in true retro-Batman style with – wait for it – Floozy Bandit shorts. Amazing.

Naked Between Four Walls

Four Walls Hunt is still ongoing, and you are missing out on some treats if you aren’t a part of it!

Naked Between Four Walls

I decided for this post i’d flounce around naked, or more… lounge.   So I donned my new Essences TDR skin and hair from Truth and draped myself over my Mudhoney Four Walls Gift!!!  This beautiful little pouffe… or whatever you’d like to call it comes in the most gorgeous vivid red and with bundles of poses, laying and sitting.  I opted for a laying one because you can’t see my tatas and that means I can go on the feed *troll face*.

Also shown is the wonderful desk from DIGS, a beautiful and classic piece.  It’ comes in an olive type greeny brown and complete with lamp and papers to shuffle, or at least pretend to shuffle!    What Next is also in the hunt with this wall Decor, I have a few of these now and I always love when another comes out!  This one is very pretty with a spring tree and birds, and a ladder which can be used to pose against.   Of course you may look at my picture and think “wtf is she doing with those three items together”… what can I say, I like to be different.  Three awesome items from three awesome stores!

Make sure you get started on the Hunt!!! You can find details on the Four Walls Blog

O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree…

O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree!

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!

New @ Bang!

Together for Sway – Look of the Day!

I went back to the TFS site today and oh my gosh, I spent a bunch more, and not everyone is set up yet!! I think today is going to be a day of just blogging Together for Sway.  So I’m going to throw a couple look of the day’s at you now, and later too, so you can gear up those purses and get ready to throw money around when the event opens tomorrow.

The first thing I clapped eyes on and was like MUST OWN is this gorgeous windchime decoration from DIGS, it’s available in various metals and this mixed metal one and they are SUPER cheap too!   So detailed and intricate, these are bound to take pride of place on your porch, or even outside a window, you may want to rescale a bit though, unless you’re a giant.  coldLogic have 2 new items out, in a handful of colours each.  I didn’t fatpack these, but now I am kicking myself I didn’t.. I just had to be frugal because there was so much else I wanted to buy, but I’ll get the other colours, who was I trying to kid?!  Anyway, they are a sweater style dress and they are just unf.. so toasty warm and cute looking!   Wasabi Pills has 3 special hairs out too, the special colours that they put out for events, in this style shown!  For only $L50 each, I had to get all three.

Together for Sway | LoTD 1 | 14/12/12

Apple Fall has a handful of items out, all of them I squee’d at, the ones I wanted weren’t set for sale yet tho, so I took the next best thing!  This cluster of lightbulbs light is just… it’s gorgeous.  No words can describe just how gorgeous it is!   It’s so pretty and detailed and whimsical and lovely.  I need to go back and buy ALL THE THINGS, as do you! While you’re there Noodles has out a gorgeous heart necklace, you can’t see it very well here and I forgot to take a close up, but I can assure you that you NEED it, not want.. NEED.   The skin I am wearing is from Insufferable Dastard and is the Sofia skin.

Together for Sway | LoTD 2 | 14/12/12

Sofia comes in three tones, I chose the palest of the three.  You get eyes and shape included, but I used my own shape and eyes from IKON, but the skin.. look! It’s so pretty.  Fresh faced and beautiful, the kind of skin that is simple, but effective in making you look just stunning.  If you haven’t tried an ID skin yet, this may be the one!

Hands and Feet are from SLink and all poses used are from aDORKable! Piercings from Cute Poison

Tis The Season for some Decor…

Tra la la la la, la la la la… yeah ok don’t worry, I’m not doing Christmas posts.. YET XD

I haven’t posted some furniture for a good week or so, so let me bring you a few of the new things I’ve acquired over the last few days!  Please click through for the flickr link and bigger pictures.

I really love this item from Conspiracy Theory for this months Zodiac… you can plainly see what it is.. a bow and arrow picture frame thinger!   It’s dreamy and lovely and is a great talking piece for any room, I decided this one was going in my bedroom, well one of them.. we’re between houses at the minute, as in I have 3345345 rezzed and just keep going I DONT KNOW WHAT TO DOOOOO with them.  But I knew this needed to be in one of them, Ewan makes some unique items and this beautiful.

Conspiracy Theory @ Zodiac

This is the item from DIGS for the Monochrome Hunt!  It’s a Silver Lining Dresser, it is soooo cute, and will suit any room, even if the rest of your decor isn’t grey/silver/monochrome.   It’s not a huge piece and fits neatly into a corner, or you can decorate around it, making it a gorgeous centrepiece.  DIGS has some awesome items, and this hunt item is a steal!  Make sure you check it out.

Finally we have a teaser! Yes, i’m sorry.. these bad boys won’t be out until the December round of The Arcade opens! I am not blessed enough to be an Arcade Blogger, but I did manage to get my excited little hands on these signs from What Next! These are SO effin’ cute you are going to view them as Pokemon and want to catch them all!

These cute, mesh signs are availabe in many different offerings, you probably need to click through for a bigger/better picture, but oh my gosh!!!  You can get bathroom ones, kitchen ones, winter ones, beach ones!!!  There are a bunch of common and a couple of rares, so you won’t have a hard time getting them all, hopefully!   I can’t wait for The Arcade to open, last time I spent more than my tier on Hamsters and Spice Jars… so this time i’m hoping I can just tone it down a notch, but judging by the teasers i’ve seen so far.. I don’t see that happening!!!

What Next coming soon for The Arcade

Lil bit of this…

lil bit of that… I have fallen behind with my blogging, damn rl! Anyway…

Tomorrow marks the new round of FAIR!  This gorgeous hat/hair combo will be available from Monso, along with this coffee bean necklace you can see!  The necklace is from Izzies and it comes as a set, there are bracelets included and a different necklace too, one more “Classy” affair, this is the casual!  They are really adorable, both the items.  The hat/hair is a SQUEEE point with me cos the top looks a lil like cat ears and I love quirky things like that! The workmanship on the necklace is also amazing, as it is on the rest of the set too! You’ll love them.

Coming to FAIR...

Leafy has this stunning set of Marionette skins out!  Aren’t they just the most BEAUTIFUL!?  You can get each of the four with different brows and a browless option, and I think I am in LOVE.  I have to get a look put together for these so I can use them again and again and AGAIN!   I love that two of them come with the different coloured eyes, then the blue eyes then the gorgeous smokey eyes! Just adorable, the lips on leafy skins look so great too and the NOSE… oh I love this nose.

New @ Leafy

Finally Digs has a new set out, this is the Rae Living Set, not all the pieces are shown, just a showcase of some of them! I must say I am rather taken with the lamps! I did rez them all and think… where are the lampshadesssss? then I realised they were SUPPOSED to be shadeless!  I LOVE THEMMMMM! Oh god I do.   I have the set out in “Fawn” but you can get it in various colours to compliment your living area.

You can get the rose picture you see, the end table, the trio of lamps, the room divider, the ottoman, the lounger (packed FULL of singles and couples anims, including some with props!), the coffee table and a gothic mirror (not shown).  All are high quality pieces that are super duper low prim so you can cram as much awesome in as possible! YAYYYYUH!
