Wicked Wicked Wild Wild West

 

The Challenge SL is upon us again with another round, this time the theme was Wild West!

Wicked Wicked Wild Wild West, innit!There are such a huge amount of AWESOME goodies, great for scenarios and every day use, I made a little picture out of a few things, as you can see above, I kinda love it!

You can click through to see bigger, but I used both the store and some of the decor pack from Hate This, including the wheat sack, coffin lid and barrel (resized), but there are SO many items for you to have a look through, and of course I had to throw a cactus in there too!  The store is MASSIVE and so well made, would make someone a perfect saloon store!  It comes with all the guts of a store too, yay!

I love the little bench from Sways, available in a few different textures and with animations in it, both singles and couples, this is perfect for any situation in ANY room, or outdoors on your porch, or wherever you want really!   To top it all off the little horseshoe mug tree with mugs from Kuro! Such a cute idea, more ideal in a kitchen situation, but well, I fancied a cuppa on my bench, so there you have it!

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

Northern Lights vs Teal Town

A little LoTD for you today, and with that some new goodies from The Liaision Collaborative and it’s theme of Northern Lights! HUZZAH!

Sways @ TLC

This gorgeous bedroom set from Sways comes in both Adult and PG and you can get the bed, the bench and the side table and all are effin’ GORGEOUS! I’ve never been a lover of… feature beds, you know with one thing that just stands out, so you have to be able to fit it in a room, but this, this is stunning!  With oodles of poses and it’s striking appearance, this is a deffo buy for sure.

I put it inside the Breno  Mars  2 Aurora!  It comes on it’s own, with terrain and with terrain and Aurora, I went for the whole hog.  It’s distressed look is perfect for urban living, or if you want a little man cave, or a woman cave with a bit of GRRR.  The terrain and aurora make it perfect for a skybox too!   Plenty of windows for shadow shots to work and plenty of space for living, if you’re an addict to living quarter buying like me, you’ll adore this.

Breno @ TLC

My look of the day mainly comes from that cute little store, Somnia!  The top and skirt are both from there and I matched it up on a trip to Teal Town!   I adore this pixel heart shirt, it’s so cute, and shows a little belly and shoulder while not being all out there all your bits hanging out!   The skirt is a shorty,  but not an crack shower, so that’s a bonus!  Both come in oooooodles of colours and sizes, the tops even come with “flat” options, how good is that?

LoTD - Teal Town

My skin is Ria from Belleza, currently available at Collabor88, but I will showcase that in all it’s glory in another post.   Also from Collabor88 are these gorgeous shoes from fri.day, the Miranda heels come in a variety of colours and are made for the Slink High Feet!   A gorgeous strappy pair perfect for casual or dressier affairs.  My ring and necklace are from Cae and are The Rack item!  Oh my gosh they are divine!!!   I absolutely love this set encompassing love and style all in one shot!    My hair is also new from Exile, all three releases are male orientated this time round, but this one has a fem size too, so was no surprise I wore it, I have been waiting on an Exile release forEVER!

The LURVEEEEE SHACK!

Well actually, it’s a skate shack, but you can still get your loving on!

Cozy Skate Shack

A new round of The Garden is a happening at The Liaison Collaborative and it’s a christmas laden treat zone!   This gorgeous skate shack is available from Eleventh Hour, and you can choose  from PG and Adult options, it comes with hot cocoa, prints on the wall and that lovely rustic feel.  I decorated it a little with some other items from TLC, and then some!

Cozy Skate Shack - Insides!

The gorgeous snow jars you can see are from Ispachi, they are at The Garden in a Gacha machine.   There are six commons and a rare for you to win!  The rare is the one you see on the left of the collage, a gorgeous musical number, and each of the jars have falling snow in them,  a lovely winter item.   The train you can see is from Lark, of course it is supposed to go on a track, but it’s just decor for me here.  Such a wonderful item for adults or kiddywinks, and would make a great present!     Finally I have the Ornament Branch from Sways!    Simple but gorgeous, and all in all I love my little kitted out shack!

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!

I’m feeling hues of pink again!

and I am!   A quick LoTD mashed with some super new poses and a new item from Sways on this glooooorious Friday! YUP!

Hopscotch - New Poses!

First up some LOVELY poses from Hopscotch!  These are for The Poser Pavillion by TLC and are “Love the Camera” and doesn’t it look like I do love it?!  You get 6 lovely poses that work well on their own or if you add some shopping bag/shoe boxes will work perfectly with those too!   The clothing I am wearing in the picture were Grenade Free Wednesdays items from Aeva/Heartsick!   I often forget that they do clothing as well as lovely skins, but here I am in a gorgeous maxi skirt and spaghetti tank top in a soft Heather/Tartan combo!  Such a lovely look!

New @ Sways

 

Sways released these Cozy Tent Shelter sets which come with tent/shelter, hay bale with single and couples poses and small lantern.  They are material enabled also!  I opted for Maroon as I thought it matched my outfit well.  I love the little shelter, it’s so cute with it’s makeshift blanket look, with small pebbles holding it down ( you can’t see that side, soz)   If you aren’t sold on Maroon you can opt from Pumpkin and Lake too, and of course you can mix and match if you’d like.

HI

Finally a close up of my facial unit. I am wearing an Aeva/Heartsick skin, it was avaiable at Love Donna Flora, so probably isn’t now (I couldn’t TP to check because SL is a bungholio)… and one of the new and upcoming releases from Essences for The Candy Fair!!!    Traditional Candy style necklace, you can also get a bracelet, I loved wearing these as a kid, love it!   Also worn are eyes from IKON and hair from Truth! <3

Winter Time…

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.

New @ Botanical

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.

Sways @ Together for Sway

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!

An Eventful Time!

There are still an abundance of events going on, hell, when ISN’T there an abundance of events going on!?! But some of the best ones I’ve been to are still rocking, and some of the best I have yet to go to… are almost upon us!

First a look at a few bits that are coming up for The Arcade from Sways and Pididdle!

I CANNOT. CAN.NOT with how gorgeous these items from Sway are. These Clocks might actually be some of the best items I’ve seen in SL, ever. The work that must have gone into them is mindblowing. The texturing on them is simply divine and they are the cutest things EVER!!!! There is something for everyone, I believe, that will fit into the decor of anyones room, and if not.. just get them because they are fookin’ adorbs.

Sways @ The Arcade - Coming Soon

There are 10 to collect, each with their own mini theme, moving pendulums and working time, the land impact of these babies is only 5LI too!  I’ve taken a few close up shots of the main feature of the clocks, and I can’t stop looking at it because it’s THAT pretty!!!    I imagine these will be one of the hottest swap/sought after items at The Arcade this round!

Sways @ The Arcade | Close Ups - Coming Soon

Also coming to The Arcade are these wonderful necklaces from Pididdle, you can see the whole collection here and below are a couple The Review Collective was lucky enough to get a sneak peek at!  You can see Holy Water, Silver Glitter, Some Teeth I Found and Butterfly below… I know I’ll be playing till my lindens are GONE to collect all the others especially Dust Bunnies and Last Years Winter!   They come in a cord style necklace and the jar is finished off with a cute bow as you can see, some fine work here guys.

Pididdle @ The Arcade - Coming Soon

Finally a little mini look of the day for you, just to showcase some items from ongoing events, and upcoming ones!   The skin I am wearing is the Essences With Love Hunt 2012 item and she is a beauty!  Saga – With Love <3 is a pale pink princess, fit for a queen though!   I decided to pair her with the Eku Top from Geometry for UnhingedSL, I Digress Hair from Clawtooth still available at Collabor88 and both the Noodles Hair Clip and BeeHive Antenna from Bees Through the Seasons

Mini LoTD - Events!

I do hope you take a look at the events still going on, you can find details from events i’ve covered on my Store Locations Page along with any SLURL or blog details on them, if available!

Around the World

Around the World, as mentioned in my previous post, starts TOMORROW PEOPLE *flail*… Here is a whole post dedicated to Magoa with a hint of Sways and a bit of Barnesworth, a whiff of Wasabi Pills and a lot of Al Vulo!

The items are being sold under the brand Ciao Bella! in the Western Europe section of Around the World, it’s not sold anywhere else atm although it was previously released (shortly) by Keira for the Magoa brand, these inspiring outfits were resurrected exclusively for the duration of ATW under Ciao Bella (BellaStaff Fhang ladies and gents, awesome lady TICAW). ANYWAY, that was just incase you were confused, I’ve probably confused you more, however.

First we start off with a set that includes the gorgeous Yuka Relaxation Set from Sways, the set comes with all the pieces shown but also in darker versions and with smaller planters, it’s an absolutely STUNNING set of items that would look great anywhere, mine looks particularly great in my Barnesworth Marrakesh Oasis that is currently on sale at Collabor88.

The outfit in this picture is the Circus of Intrigue, a sprightly little number with a ferris wheel headpiece, I really don’t need to say more, do I???  As an aside the skin worn in all pics is the Eleanor skin from Al Vulo, and the hair is the new and wonderful Kylee mesh hair from Wasabi Pills that is a gorgeous flowing style with a braid over the top for a cute, but sexy and sassy feel!

Around The World | Sways | Magoa

Next we have the Dahlia Outfit, complete with little top hat, this is the perfect dark picture of beauty and that something a lil different.  Please remember that these items are NOT mesh, and do come with sculpt pieces etc, I know some people are not keen on that soooo just remember that if you’re click happy!

Around The World | Magoa & Sways

The Hug Yourself outfit might be one of my favs, complete with pretty (yes pretty) straight jacket, this number made me smile when I put it on, which probably wasn’t meant to happen but it made me happy that someone wasn’t afraid to think outside the box and do a gorgeous outfit complete with cuffs and the like that doesn’t make light of mental illness, more points out the constraints it can sometimes have on you, just because you aren’t IN a straight jacket, doesn’t mean you don’t feel confined by whatever your illness might be.
