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.
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.
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!
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.
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!
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.
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
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, 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!
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!
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.
Much more below the cut! Read the rest of this entry
This time, not literally!
It’s Lazy Sunday time!! That means discounted goooooodies, and this sofa from What Next is not to be sniffed at. There are three different colours available and each comes with oooodles of animations! Singles, Couples and event Prop ones!! This pic is a bit dark, I apologise for that it didn’t “feel” that dark when I took it, but here I am, in my Adore & Abhor Halloween Bikini checking out my Sways Gacha Swag! You have to get over to What Next and check them out, I know you will love them!
The bikini is available at the Starlust Monster Beach Party in various colours and has skulls on, halloweeeeeeeen is a comin!
These are just a few of the pins you can get from the Gacha at Sways atm! I love this idea!!!! So many cute badges to be won. Of course they are wearable, but I am checking them out whilst lounging on my new sofa.. soooo… I think one of my favs has to be the owl, and the panda! and the cute lil doll.. oh god there are too many cute things to mention! This is literally 8 out of what feels like thousands! Of course there aren’t thousands, but there are tons and they are totally adorable.
Finally a little look of the day. I am still playing blog catch up with everything I want to blog but I had to stop sorting and go out and get these GOS boots and the horns (also from the Starlust Beach Party) from Lassitude & Ennui! I popped on the outfit from Perfect Wardrobe by Sakide and I couldn’t mention Sunday Swag without ONE item from Swag Fest… this time it’s the shorts from Essences. I had to wear the Livia skin from Al Vulo with this because the dark lips are just PERFECTION on my face. YES. THEY ARE.

Nobody tell Gus, but I seem to have grown.. a BUMP! As you can see by my face, the bump seems to suggest I won’t have time to blog! DO NOT PANIC, THIS IS NOT AN EMERGENCY, just a goofy post, I don’t REALLY have a bump but this gorgeous maternity dress from Geometry kinda makes me want one!!! It comes in 3 trimester stages and can be found at FaMESHed!!
Also at FaMESHed is this gorgeous hair from LaViere! I chose the tipped pack, kinda wish I’d gotten more now but HO HUM, still time to go back! It come with normal version and “hat” version, as they have a Beret out for sale too! OOER!
The cute table and blogger office accessories you can see are from What Next! The blogger theme runs through the memo board, the small print on the desk and the pad/pen! Really cute idea, I do love What Next and the stuff you can get from there! The two cute piggies you can see are going to be Sway’s items for the Arcade Gacha (3 days left to gooooo guys!) and let me tell you, you will want them ALLLLLL!!! There are broken piggies and non broken piggies, but the broken are my favs. They are only 1li and and AND come with tip jar script too!!! That’s right, everyone over to mine to tip me, the bump and I will need it!
Finally, the skin is from Essences and is one of the new Gacha skins you can find at the main store. It’s only $L150 per play and there are 6 skins to win! WWWEEEEE!!!
Ok, so I go on holiday tomorrow for a week, so today is JAM PACKED full of some new stuffs I picked up! Bear with me it’s image heavy! I’ll make a cut after the first one (hope it works on the feeds) just incase you don’t want to read, but you’ll be missing out! There are items from SO many people! I’ll try not to waffle, all SLURLS will be the store/event name annnnnd I tried taking pics with Ambient Occlusion on so sorry if they’re not on par!
This is look one! I got these BOOM Linen trousers and needed to work them into a couple of looks! I paired this Cobalt pair with the Baiastice ruffled anchor top, available from TDRb. The trousers are something to behold, they are SO SO gorgeous. Boom are coming out with some fantastic mesh, as are Baiastice! The hair is the new Skye style from Wasabi Pills and it’s a lovely short do, I think this one would look perfect on a petite, and it’s non rigged, so you can try to fit it! The skin is the TDRb offering from Atomic, and is another gorgeous piece. Shoes are Celoe but we will talk about them later
Ok, so I held out for a few hours, but i’m back with some more stuff! Here are few of the more “homely” things you can find at the VF!
Sways has a HUGE array of goodies out for you. The Sways “Sixty” Set comes as separates, or in actual sets in various colours. It’s a living room set, and I love that you can mix and match. It’s all copy and partial mesh! You can see in this picture “Her” chair (with or without pillow available, 4 texture options) and self rezzing props), “His” chair (with and without pillow, 4 texture options) and again, props, a floor and a ceiling lamp, one of the 4 vintage prints available, table, magazine, candy bowl, book with glasses and rug! I really love this, soooo vibrant and with so many options too!
HopScotch have released a ton of stuff, this is just one of my favs. This is the Puckman prop! It comes with ooooodles of poses. It can seat up to 4 avatars at once, so you can play solo (like me, sob sob) or with a friend. Not all poses are shown below either. I love the one with the foot on the machine trying to pull hard on the lever, and the one at the side of the machine, there is a mirror one to that, so two friends can play and two can watch. My fav HAS to be the spraycan pose tho (comes with spraycan prop) changing the P to an F. I lol’d!!! Great stuff <3
The dress I am wearing is one of Ducknipples VF offerings and is a lovely plain mesh dress!
Finally two things from Baffle, the first is a lil skybox/garden thinger and OMGG LOVE LOVE LOVE!! I love anything whimsical like this, Baffle is one of my all time fav stores in SL for such things. It comes with everything you see including the working lamp! SO cute I could squee. Also available are these paper butterflies that you hold, releasing them from a jar, I can imagine this prop is going to get some AWESOME snaps taken of it! The dress/top is from Leri Miles Designs and is one of the few they have out for Vintage Fair, lovely and bright, colourful and chic! LOVE!
Sways is one of those stores that you just love, it sells everything (well not EVERYTHING but lots of things) and it’s quality is always top notch.
Also new is a Bangle Gatcha, $L22 a pop, transferable.. these bangles are just lovely! These are the colours you can win:
Installation FOUR here! YAY!:
Sways has SO much stuff out, I haven’t even captured it all here!! This is Sways Summer House! It comes with window shutters, gorgeous marquiss out the front front, a sweet little roof terrace with grass and ladder access and a tiny lil garden with grass and fence.. you’ll also note some graffiti and climbing ivy! A charming little number.
This is the lil garden and the Sways Lawn Chair and Guitar! A gorgeous lil chair that comes with 10 poses and 1 play guitar anim, and a playable guitar! I used mine as a prop tho
We then have the Deckchair, it comes with 4 poses, stool and magazines, drink and sunglasses! A lovely summery feel to it! Also in this pic is the Sways Blanket! It has 6 static couples poses and 4 animations, again it comes with rezzable, playable guitar and various props! There is a singles pillow with 2 static and 6 animated poses, and comes with various bits and bobs like a cheeseboard, wine bottle, cherry bowl!
Below, in the Sways House, I have put out some of the Fucifino goodies! The West Branch Table and Decor comes complete with photo frames, books, vases! So much good stuff! Above that you can see two of the few shelves available, the West Branch Shelf on the left and the Verona Branched Shelf on the right! I love shelves and picture frames in SL!! These were just perfection! There are tons more things to nab, but I haven’t shot them yet
Make sure you go look!
