Things are Rosey

Blithe is a new and well designed sim that is open to the public. This is a great sim for hanging out and taking pictures by yourself, with friends, or a loved one. You may have been to or heard of it’s neighboring sim that houses the The Pixel Bean Coffee House. Harlow Heslop has been hard at work making this a carefree and happy place for all to visit. I chose to show off my new look at Blithe. No21 event just opened up on February 21st. I was happy to find more spring like outfits. Here I am all ready for a spring cupcake party at Blithe in this fun Atomic Rosey Posey dress. In each set the sweater top comes in 3 colors and the skirt in 2. The colors are changed by a hud. Lamb created my hairstyle named Birdy. I love how cute and carefree the cut and style is. The gorgeous Yoshiko heels are from Ingenue and can be found at the Creepy Kawaii Fair. These are made for Maitreya, Slink, and Belleza bodies/feet. Add your pictures of Blithe to the flickr pool.

Room Additions

I’ve shown you this room before. But, since Collabor88 opened I have added a few new things to it. First is the Trompe Loeil Amelia Loveseat. It comes in three colors and they are loaded full of animations. Also, the pillows are texture change. I really love this piece. Above the loveseat is a Theosophy Beaumaris Mirror. I can see this mirror being used in several different room settings. The gorgeous curtains are from Half Deer. The roses on it are color changing, which makes it perfect for matching your bed set. MishMish and her cute little bears in the suitcase sitting on a bench are irresistible. Dust Bunny collaborated with her on this cute bear set. One last thing I am showing you here is my Schadenfreude Deer in the Forest of Leaves book. I could never cut a book up like that irl. But for SL it is cute and no real books were harmed. The other things in the picture have been blogged before, but I’ve listed them again in case you missed it. Happy dreaming!… Read the restRoom Addition

Flowers

(click for full image) Flowers tend to bring happiness into the picture. I have a spot on my sim that I am going to always keep flowers and green grass on. This is my happy place. Winter is fun for a little while, but it can also bring the mood down. Collabor88 just opened and there are so many pretty things filled with love. I chose the Clawtooth Erica hair because it was so darling with the loose braid and bow. The Foxes Wallflower Dress looks so soft and delicate. And the Cecily flats in blush from Ingenue goes perfectly with this outfit. The poses are from !bang and add to the girly cuteness of the image. It all says Love. What am I wearing?

Slumber Kitties

These adorable kittens look ready for a slumber party. I can never resist the gorgeous Apple Fall items or pretty much any kittens. And in this Chapter Four event they offer both. They are all perfect for the new Apple Fall Chelsea Townhouse. Also displayed in this room is the +love set from Windsong for The Neighborhood. This includes the paper hearts in pastels and darks, raggedy love wall decor, and the smitten mocha tray. The Chapter Four

Breakfast in Bed

Dust Bunny and Windsong have collaborated to bring us this super cute Valentine’s Tray at The Chapter Four. I put this breakfast tray on my new Windsong Gretchen’s Shabby Bed. The heart shaped pancakes are just adorable! See this post for a look at the bed, which can be found in the House Hunt for just 20L.

Carnaby Street

(click for larger view on flickr) By now you have seen the wonderfully created buildings from Apple Fall. The Carnaby Row Store, Chelsea Townhouse, and Portobello Corner Store all fit very well together. You will find that the Carnaby Row Store has texture change exteriors. The townhouse has 2 rooms on each of the three floors. I have decorated this one with mostly furnishings from Apple Fall, Trompe Loeil, and What Next. It has a few touches from Tres Blah, Mudhoney, 8f8, and dust bunny. Normally I list all credits, however with so many items displayed, I will only be listing credits for the newest releases.

Ready for Spring

I am so ready for Spring to come back. The soft colors of this season make me happy. Like the colors on this girly shabby chic bed from windsong. You can get this from The House Hunt starting February 1st. It went well with my new texture change shades from Mudhoney, and blue ruffle pouf from PILOT. On the desk are some cute kawaii items from windsong that will be at The Woodlands. Also on the desk is Atelier Kreslo: hyasynth’s Candy – Cookie Bird from the Atelier Kreslo Farewell Bake Sale.

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.

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.
