Giant Hunting

I have heard tales that in some lands there are giants and dragons. I suited up for cold weather, brought my guard dog and went in search of one. After all, giants! Who could imagine such a thing. And what do you know? I found one! Not much of a guard dog if he lays down and chills when we actually FIND a dragon, though, is he? Good grief. Oh well, I met a giant. I think he wanted to make fuck but you know, I had to go wash my hair, or something. “Or Something” is a cockblock for a lot of fellas. Sorry guys. Not really. Itsonlyfashionblog.com

Hello Cold Weather

December is here and that means Christmas! and The Arcade! and it is up for debate which is more exciting. It’s so easy to go the red and green route for the holidays, but I resisted, buoyed by the gorgeous Camellia lights from {anc} over in the corner. I went for pinks and turquoises, think Miami meets Idaho. I liberally used the edit menu to tint my furnishings just a bit and even retexture a few things such as the runner on the side table. I know it’s a blend of modern and traditional that should clash, but it doesn’t. I think of Simon de Pury when I decorate, “Be bold, be brave, be amazing.” Why not mix modern settees with traditional cupboards and folk art and deco end tables? If you can make harmony of contradiction, then it’s not just bold, it is amazing. Speaking of amazing, I love the Bauwerk Dall, a carved deer with exaggerated legs and a sleek, minimalist form. I placed several deer statues in the house, they are such beautiful animals.… Read the restHello Cold Days

The Yardsale List: December 2016- February 2017

The Yardsale List is an ongoing list of all Second Life yardsales for any gachas or transferable items. We understand that there are many popular gacha events throughout the year that leave your inventories overflowing with extras to buy, trade and sell. To ensure that the list stays current with only active yardsales, every three months we will wipe the slate clean and start fresh. So if you’re a gachaholic and want to try to recoup some of your funds, why not have a yardsale? Just make sure to let us know about it so that we can place it on the list! Yardsales will be categorized into three sections; Featured Yardsales, Private Yardsales and Public Yardsales, then alphabetized by name. Featured Yardsales will be placed prominently at the top of the yardsale list, and will also receive a special link in a “Yard Sale” tab located on the Seraphim front page. If you would like to know more information about how to get your sale on the featured list please click the button below!… Read the restThe Yardsale List V1

Dear Santa I Can Explain – I FOUND The Baby

The Patchwork Lodge from PLAAKA at this round of Arcade is definitely one of the MUST HAVEs from this round. It’s a gorgeous light filled wonder and I only wish it was bigger. It’s truly lovely. I’m taking the night off to relax in it’s rustic wonder, enjoying the view and relative peace of this space. Enjoying the peace and quiet is a surefire way for something to go wrong, and right about the time I felt like for SURE I was about to stretch out for a nap.. I heard a noise. The cats heard it too. I had to go outside and investigate and well… I found an angel baby. HOW SWEET IS THIS? I kinda love it. I want clothes for it. All my goodies today are coming up in this next round of THE ARCADE!

Click through for full colour version On December 1, The Arcade will open its doors one more to the gacha crazy shoppers of SL! The shopping guide has been published here and I’m thrilled to show you a preview of one of the items in the many machines, Azuchi‘s Rider jacket (Maitreya exclusive). I’m wearing the rare black stitched version here. Azuchi‘s items look good in any windlight, but once you switch to ultra, the jacket really stands out.  My dad had a shop with a lot of leather clothing, so I have a pretty good idea of what a nice piece of leather looks and feels like (and smells, god, the smell of leather is so awesome and comforting to me) and these jackets look GOOD! Take it from someone who knows! Hair Iroha by Argrace

The Arcade Is Coming

I’ve surrendered my lindens to the Gods of the Arcade and I have NO regrets. My cup runneth over with joy and happy. The things I deleted have been replaced with new, wonderful things and I’m ready for the season of happy! Some of my first pass loves are the amazing folk art pieces for the kitchen from The Secret store and these HUSKIES from Jian. Oh gosh there are so many and SO SO SO CUTE. Thanks to Second Spaces I’ve pulled out my good bakeware and I’m going to be ready to cook once I get everything sorted out in my kitchen. It’s a little hectic in there.  But with such pretty new things to cook with, I’m looking forward to it. But before I do anything, I’m gonna just nap a little. So much shopping and unboxing makes me a tired girl for sure. Itsonlyfashionblog.com
