Calli’s Gacha Emporium- it’s a world you have to discover




My good friend Callipygian Christensen has a little bit of an addiction, but it's a good one. She loves gachas. Now I'm not talking about a love that is fleeting, but one that has deep dedication and perseverance, Calli has one of the largest collections of gacha items I have ever seen in SL.

But what makes her gacha collection so special and distinct? besides the fact that she has so many items, I would say it's her attention to detail. She has created a unique gacha shopping experience for you to enjoy.

Rather than TPing in on a yard sale that has been haphazardly put together. Calli has lovingly place her gacha out like a work of art for your shopping pleasure.

Each Gach is reasonably price and fair. I've never been sticker shocked by Calli's Gachas.



There are so many items that I'm sure you will find something perfect for your sl life. I can spend so much time exploring this area looking at the Gacha collection she has in place.

Calli's Gachas lm included in the link.Read the restCalli's Gachas

Cozy and Warm for the Holiday Season – Alexand Vantelli

A space decorated by Alexand Vantelli As the cold snow drifts across the windows, leaving small swirls of leftover flakes in it’s wake. The toasty warm fire crackles and snaps spermatically. And the wall of clocks clings and chimes as the hours pass. Snuggled up under a supple cashmere throw with matching socks and comfy thick sweater; we sip our hot coco spiked with a cinnamon stick and more than a few drops of rum. Hours pass by like minutes as we dive into our books and magazines. Cuddled up at either end of the couch sharing our blanket and plenty of plush pillows. The soft light from the lamps, christmas trees and fireplace illuminate the room. In the dinning room, the settings and plates are all set for the family feast. We better enjoy this quiet night while we can. Whilst in the bedroom the room fills with the scent of pine and nutmeg. The bed is draped in soft, plush comforters and pillows. Inviting and warm. Paper lanterns radiate a warm gentle light through the small holes decorating them, which seems to make the room glow with the radiance of hundreds of tiny fairies.… Read the restCozy Winter - Alex

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

Kirsten and Hiram’s Fall and Winter 2014 Home




We were really late in making our fall home this year. I am not sure what happened but fall kind of flew by and now its time to change to winter and put up Christmas decorations! In fact I was so late in blogging this post that I just decided to show you how I changed from fall to winter in the same post as well. We used the barnesworth anubis bates house as our fall house. Inside the color pallette I went with is chocolate, teal, hot pink, grey, light blue and slight dashes of burnt orange. My overall decorating theme was french country with pops of color. I was inspired by the tv show Color Splash with David Bromstad. I love that designer! My walls are mostly grey and I put pops of color into my decor- a trend that David does often. So please come inside and look around my fall home!



I will start with my living room because this set and specific texture that I fell in love with is where all of my decorating began and what drove my color scheme. This is the Alto set by Abiss and its actually on sale at creation.jp currently.… Read the rest

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

Whimsical Unicorn


One of the reasons I enjoy Arcade so much is all of the very cute, whimsical items. I love crowns, tiaras, unicorns, and rainbows and those things are usually in abundance at Arcade. This round I got the Rare Pixicat Unicorn onsie and the rare katat0nik rainbow toy boots. I paired them with some unicorn/ rainbow rares I got in previous arcade rounds as well as more from this round and created a whimsical perfect unicorn room! 



Arcade artists create so much cute! I almost can't stand it. I enjoy collecting it so much!



Now I am just going to prance around in my eclectic unicorn room in my unicorn onsie and rainbow toy boots! I hope you all have this much fun today!

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

Sexy Holiday



Looking for a sexy holiday look girls? I have it for you today. Put all this on your Christmas list! First these new Eudora 3D shoes are coming to uber tonight at midnight SL time and they are so amazing. Jenn has a beautiful lace/crochet pattern overlay that is available in black, white, or brown. My dress is new by Maai and it also features a pretty lace overlay pattern. Maai has been very busy lately and has released at least 10 things in the last few weeks. I can't even open all the things its so much and they are all amazing- three sexy dresses, one formal, one wedding dress, gloves, and three lingerie sets. (Actually while I was trying to blog this, she sent another formal gown! Snow is on fire!) All of them are made for Omega, Slink Physique, and The Mesh project. The dresses have wonderful rigged mesh panels and if you need help fitting them- see my tutorial. If you are looking for beautiful and sexy applier dresses, formals, and lingerie for your mesh avatars, you definitely need to take a trip to Maai.… Read the rest

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

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.

Wedding Clearing


I have taken a few days break from blogging because I was focused on my wedding! SQUEE! It was late last night and I am going to blog a few posts about it and this first one is just going to be about the place and decorations. It was magical, romantic, and perfect! It started with the "scene" I envisioned in my head. I told Hiram that I wanted a clearing in the woods full of pink flowers, lights, and pink bows with a clear center for us to stand. He did most of the work creating this magical space, but I added a few touches as well. So like most of our projects, this was something we created together. Hiram made the mesh pink bows and the balloons. I have been to a lot of weddings in SL and even recent ones seem to look like they are from 2007 with regular prim benches and decor. I wanted something completely different and definitely all mesh. I wanted beautiful, romantic, and casual fun. I think we achieved that perfectly! 

I used decor items from a Gacha set made by Candy Nail that I got at the last Seasons Story (fall).… Read the rest

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
