The Fountain and the Tree

Pups and I decided that today was a great day for shopping. We stopped by Kustom 9 to pick up something warm. As I stood near the fountain outside of K9, I realized that I looked like the fountain with my !bang pose and the tree in the background with my blonde hair. Pups was a bit chilly without her little coat on. So we headed back to our new home, which we cannot wait to show you soon! We’re still decorating. But you are always welcome to come by for a visit.
Coming Up in a blog post soon!

Unicorn Magic

I was so excited to hear that Collabor88 would be Unicorn themed this month. Since there are so many great choices at C88, it was a tough decision on which outfit to buy. I recently read that Unicorns were a symbol of purity and grace. OK, I’ll go with that. But, it was also noted that they could only be caught by a virgin. I’m sure nobody on the grid is going to believe that one. We all have unicorns now! I just knew Alirium would be the right spot to take my pictures. Poses: !bang Stands 465-469 The Seasons Story

Attention to Detail

It is amazing that I can get anything done with these two loving all over each other. They really are best friends. Yet, I was able to bake an apple pie and about to get laundry going. These new Apple Fall pieces can be found at The Chapter Four. What I admire most about Apple Fall’s work is the attention to detail. If you look at the bottom of the pitchers you will find the reflection of those 2 rose petals and the wire. Even the scale has reflections on the glass. The hot apple pie steams realistically. You can almost smell the fresh baked pie. Apple Fall (AF) @ The Chapter Four

Second Life Yearbook Smile Challenge

Strawberry Singh has a Second Life Yearbook Smile Challenge. You can read all about this fun challenge on her blog. The idea is to smile in a portrait picture, as if it were for your yearbook. Then share it the image. I tried to get them to let me have my cat in the picture like this guy did. That didn’t quite happen. Credits:

Avatar in a Box Challenge

Happy New Year! It was time to sort through old inventory folders since it was the first of the year. Some of the folders were easy to move into a larger folder where it may not be seen again. And others I had a harder time putting away. This led me to ask the question on Plurk, “how old is too old?” Just how long do you keep something in your inventory? Do you wear things more than once? I have found items that have never been worn or rezzed in world. And not just clothing items! After thinking about these questions for awhile, and while deciding to take down some of my Christmas decorations, I remembered the Avatar in a Box Challenge. I found out about the challenge through Strawberry Singh. Vanessa Blaylock has challenged you, should you choose to accept it, to creatively arrange yourself in a box. Read her blog to find out the details of this challenge. So, I went on to put my holiday dressed avatar in a cardboard box along with the old Christmas decor, and then I set it up in the attic.… Read the restAvatar in a Box Challenge

Inspiration


Admiring the adorable newborn baby deer.
in·spi·ra·tion noun ˌin(t)-spə-ˈrā-shən, -(ˌ)spi-
something that makes someone want to do something or that gives someone an idea about what to do or create : a force or influence that inspires someone
a person, place, experience, etc., that makes someone want to do or create something
a good idea
Inspiration, as noted above, is something or someone that influences one, makes one want to create, a good idea. The Inspiration Point sim, the residents, and especially this hunt are all of those. Right now until December 31st, there is a fantastic hunt at Inspiration Point. The participants are The Secret Store, MishMish, Kirin, Tee*fy, LaViere, Flowey, Pizza’s, Jim, Intrigue Co., Pilot, and Boogers. You’ll find 35 bunnies hidden around on the sim. The prizes that these creators have made for us are absolutely amazing! Everyone really should participate in this annual event. There is a hud showing the location of the bunnies on the map, which makes it a whole lot easier.… Read the restInspiration

Blue Christmas

Christmas is my most favorite time of the year! This year I’m having a Blue Christmas, but not because of sadness. Because I also love the color blue, and I just happen to have some new and really pretty blue decor. llorisen has these really nice skyboxes at the Arcade. They are perfect and have scripted shrubs, floors, windows, and curtains. It is just one big room, but it has an upstairs/downstairs kind of separation. I think it is a great loft. Inside I decorated it with the coveted pretty blue dust bunny christmas tree. I imagine that there was a blue theme going on at the Arcade. Also the Apple Fall deer has a blue scarf on, the PEACE letters from Trompe Loeil are blue, and the little kitten inside the gift box from granny has a blue blanket. This has really been a great round of Arcade. I love everything that I have from the gachas. The Arcade SL December 2014

Soiree

It’s time for a soiree! Won’t you join me? Tres Blah has always made pastries and cakes that I adore. This new Soiree release gives us more of what we can’t live without. I was able to acquire all pieces to the gacha set except the rare lemonade. My favorite is the peach cake, as it is so well made. The icing is not flat, but rippled and wavy like a real cake. The donut frosting glistens and the sprinkles are actually raised mesh and not just texturing. The whole set is all so perfect and cute. You not only get the food, but also soiree decorations. Balloons, party fans, table, curtain backdrop, and pom poms are part of this party. I put the Tres Blah Soiree set with some of the pieces from 8f8 Granny’s Winter Cottage, Trompe Loeil Advent Calendar, Mudhoney, Half Deer, and others. Christmas is my most favorite time of year, and many of the Arcade designers went with that theme. Generous gifts for Arcade shoppers were under the huge tree, which was beautifully decorated by Aime Takaai of Mish Mish.… Read the restSoiree Food

Cottage in Winter

I wanted to create an image that showed the cold of winter, but one that still made you feel warm. This cozy little home is from the 8f8 Granny’s Winter Cottage Set. You can choose from six different outside colors through a texture change menu. The mesh house is 120 prims. It can be found at The Arcade, which is the biggest gacha event in Second Life. I’ve surrounded this quaint cottage with trees from Botanical and alirium. The Arcade

Inspiration Point


Outside relaxing on one of the couches. It is the end of the month and time to visit another bakery in Second Life. What I love about this particular bakery is that there is an outside seating area with comfy couches and a warm fire pit. Plenty of cute baked goods are available from the Sweet Life Bakery Tram. Indoors you can see that it is decorated with a lot of detailed pieces from 8f8. The Agora kitchen is not only adorable, but it is also interactive. Don’t tell the owners, but I helped myself to a little baking in their kitchen. I like to check out the details that the owner has placed into their bakeries. This one is decorated by Azure Electricteeth and Maylee Oh. On the counter you can see that someone is getting ready to do some baking. Possibly a pumpkin pie. The windlight settings in the pictures are sim set. I think it made the whole experience cozy and dreamy like.
Inside some orders are ready to go. Visit the bakery at Inspiration Point for yourself and enjoy a treat or two.… Read the restInspiration Point

Geekin’

I was over at the Geeks ‘n’ Nerds event checking out the sim. The rezzing point is in a cool underground subway. As I came up I walked around and checked out the Back to the Future area. I stopped to get my picture taken next to the Delorean while pretending I was shocked. Scripts are off so it was a little hard to make a surprised face. IKR! Then I strolled over to this newspaper stand. These nerdy little guys kept telling me to buy the paper or get out of there. The one even gave me the hand. Whatever nerdy boys. The one thing that I knew I wanted was The Secret Store’s Luna Preppy Cardigan. Maylee Oh’s clothing is superior. The cardigan actually looks knitted, the buttons and pockets are attached and not just drawn on, the wrinkles are well done, and I could wear it with another brand’s skirt. After picking up my new cardigan, I came home to blog on my new BOOM Super Magical Portable Internet Machine. This rare octo internet machine is an attachment and has some really nice poses.… Read the restgeeks 'n' nerds

Suzette

The 21Shoe event is today, obviously. You’ll find participating stores offering either two new pairs of shoes for the price of one on this date only. Some stores may also offer two exclusive pairs of shoes. Ingenue is in this months 21shoe and has out at her store Suzette in Teal and Lipstick. The sale is today only, so get shopping! While I was at !bang picking up the FLF pose pack I noticed Kenney Interiors right next door. I tried rummaging through Britain’s files to get her notes for decorating. I just love her work. The files seemed locked and I couldn’t access her laptop. I’ll bring a hair pin next time. !bang pose set 420-429 FLF

Mayfair Home

I’ve had this home since the last Arcade. But I just finally finished decorating it. The long hall was the hardest to figure out. Thanks to a picture from Britain, I finally knew what to put there (the console and mirror). I really feel like items from Scarlet Creative, Apple Fall, and Tromple Loeil go well together. Christmas is right around the corner, and I cannot wait to decorate it for the season. You can take a look around my place in SL if you want, just IM me. I’d love for you to see it. Please ask if you’re curious about where anything is from. Apple Fall Mayfair Skybox from The Arcade SL September 2014.

Foxy Shoes

Here I was deciding on which shoes to wear with Foxy helping me out. I think she decided on the Ivy booties for herself. I’m going with the Chloe flats. I love the bow on the top.

SL Bare Face Challenge

#SLBareFaceChallenge
Challenge was started by Genkai Tesla and seen all over blogs, plurk, and flickr. I decided to not just do the standard bare face picture. But also adding the picture of me being silly and playing with facial expressions. It is called bored, but I think it looks more like she is about to sneeze! The challenge is to post a pic of your avatar with no makeup, no lashes, no ps, and no enhancements. It was hard to find a bare skin in my inv.

In the Pantry

I love it when the season changes. Fall has to be by far the best. This season is so vibrant and the weather is much cooler. A new season also means a new wardrobe. I found myself picking out this sweater dress at FaMESHed, and I just knew the boots from fri.day would need to go with it. I went back to C88 to pick those up. I know my hair is going through the sweater. But look at the hair! How could you not wear it and show it off. And it isn’t like you all don’t know this is Second Life, and this is what we deal with. I love the Exile dancing horses hair, and I had to get the new Glam Affair skin. I wish you could see my new earrings from Glam Affair, I’ll have to post again and show them to you. They are so pretty. Afterwards, I went home and finished setting up my kitchen. I had this beautiful new cake to display and pretend that I baked. The doors to the Apple Fall pantry open so that you can stuff them full. The doors to the Trompe Loeil stove open and you can turn off the fire inside.… Read the restIn the Pantry

Autumn

Today is the last day of The Seasons Story. This is a quarterly event and won’t be back until January. The Seasons Story is celebrating their one year anniversary and the participating creators have a lot of free gifts out for you. Above are a few of the things that I picked up from the event. I love the look and fall feel from the apples. The bench (from L’amitie Fall Market) makes me think of taking my shoes off and enjoying a rest under the shade of the trees. The Seasons Story

Notting Hill

Not to long ago I went on a visit to Notting Hill while it was open to the public. The sim is gorgeous. Full of vibrant colors from the leaves welcoming fall. In the middle of Notting Hill is a park for the kids to play in, and a cozy fireplace for the adults to enjoy a cup of hot chocolate by. If you look around back you will find a neat little area to watch movies. At the end of the street is The Village Cafe. And you should know that I love little cafes. The cafe is as inviting as the rest of the sim. Inside I found pieces from my favorite builder, Apple Fall. There was a also a touch of cuteness from MishMish, baked goods from 8f8, and added elegance from Zaara. While we are on the subject of cafes and baked goods let me show you these limited edition Spoopy Cupcakes at Atelier Kreslo. These cute cupcakes have little eyeball candies on the top of the yummy looking frosting. These treats were made by flowey. Only available until November 1st!

eleven

Eleven years ago today I rezzed in Second Life. I remember flying into buildings and being so embarrassed about it. I landed in the sim Tan where I met Viola Bach, Nick Rhodes, Nicola Escher, Ezhar Fairlight, and Lordfly Digeridoo. These were the people who made the best impression on me to stay in Second Life. Viola Bach made jewelry and had taught me how. I believe that Beryl Greenacre was my first customer. It wasn’t long before I bought land in Tan and set up shop. My store was called Apollo’s Jewelry. Sometime in 2004 my store name changed to Caroline’s Jewelry. I created jewelry from 2003 until 2013. I started with a small parcel to owning many parcels. Then in 2006 I bought my very own sim. Like most creators, I ended up on a lonely platform. My friends quit logging in. I still miss the days of hanging out with my old friends and doing crazy stuff in Second Life. I have great new friends, and I am now out seeing this new world. It has changed drastically for the better, and I look forward to seeing what happens next.… Read the resteleven
