Chinese and Chill

Everyone loves the whole “Netflix and Chill” idea but I was inspired to do a Chinese and Chill shoot when I saw the adorable take out gacha set from Lost Junction that is available at Gacha Garden through February 28th! Not only is this set super cute as decor, but each item also dispenses wearable food. My alt Lorelai is wearing one of the donuts from the Seeds of Inspiration gift of donuts that you get with every 20 pulls of the machine.

I’m wearing the Prove lingerie from Neve, which has both sheer and modest versions (I went for the modest so I didn’t have to make the Flickr rating PG). My alt is wearing le fil casse’s Entrapment bodysuit in Rose Gold. This color is a gift you can grab at Linden Lab’s Shop Your Heart Out event through February 26th!

The gorgeous bedroom set we’re sitting in front of is from Cheeky Pea and can be found at the current round of faMESHed. This is the Pascale set and I love the dreamy, pastel watercolor effect this set has. It still feels wintry but with the hope of spring to come. It’s romantic and seemed perfect for this little set up.

Chinese & Chill

I’m wearing Pink Fuel’s gorgeous, limited edition skin tone version of the popular Adeline applier. This tone is called Fawn and I really love it. These can be found at Collabor88 during the current round (through March 5th). My necklace is another Gacha Garden item, from Cae. This is the SOI gift you get for every 20 pulls, which also includes earrings (not seen here).

New Year’s Heartbreak

I took these pics on New Year’s Day. I was feeling a bit down, so I decided to do a blue sort of scene, with a play on words… “Happy Blue Year.” For a lot of reasons, New Year’s is tough for me, but it was more than the usual this year. I just felt in my gut entering 2018 that our beloved pup was unlikely to make it to 2019. He was diagnosed with a heart condition late last summer and the truth is, at one point I didn’t even think we’d get one last autumn and holiday season with him. But we did… and yet, I knew it was probably the last. I did my best to make the most of it.

Unfortunately, I had no idea how right my gut was. His condition took a sudden turn for the worse and Thursday morning we had to say goodbye. We’re heartbroken. I’m shattered and utterly devastated. I don’t know how to do this… to live without my baby here. I know time will help me figure it out but I also know I’ll never be the same. Having to say goodbye was brutal… the coming weeks, months, year will be brutal, too. But never having had him would’ve been worse. He made more than a quarter of my life brighter and better. I’m forever changed by having had him in my life.

I don’t have it in me to do a lot more than explain this, share my pics and list credits. But I wanted to get this posted before it got any further into 2018.

Happy Blue Year

hold on to the memories, they will hold on to you

And I made a collage of our baby, which I also wanted to share here.

Our beloved Flashdog

And on a final note, a song that’s been helping me cope a bit, particularly the quote “hold on to the memories, they’ll hold on to you,” which happens to be the title of the headshot. It appropriately came on the radio as we drove home from the vet Thursday morning, and while I sobbed through it, it was also cathartic somehow. Music is magic for me, so I am using it to get through this, as much as I am able.

Santa’s Helper

Exile has created the cutest little dress that is perfect for being a holiday elf or Mrs. Claus herself. There’s also a hair designed to fit perfectly under its fuzzy hood! The dress is called Santa Baby and comes in 3 color packs. The hair is called Weekender and comes in all of Exile’s usual colors. You’ll find both in the Mainstore. I thought the look was perfect for helping to sell trees on the tree farm by hive I picked up from Tannenbaum. My gorgeous tree is from Half-Deer and you can find it at Collabor88. There are so many colors and styles (I am using the Traditional here), and if you love Christmas as much as I do, I highly recommend the fatpack for L$788. It’s a great deal. My adorable shoes are Ingenue for The Arcade. I also want to point out my reindeer, as he’s from a new store called Mad Match. Right now they only have a Marketplace store, but there are some really cute things and it’s definitely worth checking out.

Santa's helper

I am wearing one of LAQ’s recent bento head releases, Scarlet. I love this head. It’s sweet and doll-like. I’m wearing it with the Lola Glam Affair skin applier designed for it that you can find at Kustom 9.

Scarlet & Emerald

While I’m talking about LAQ, I want to mention that the newest head Neve is on sale for just L$500 through Christmas Eve! So if you need to give a last minute gift or need a new head for yourself or an alt, this is a great opportunity to grab a gorgeous head for an unreal price. I intend to blog that one in the next week or two but I really wanted to make sure to mention it before the sale ended!

To all of you celebrating, I wish you a very Merry Christmas, full of love, goodies and lots of happy memories!

Love,
Lucie

Horrors

After 3 rounds of DRD’s Shadow Box I can honestly say, I utterly love this box! Getting a dark and light version of similar items is a ton of fun. I thought Halloween would be a perfect time to use October’s Dark version of their awesome bathroom collection. Just Because has a fabulous group gift bloody version of their Giselle gown available. I’m wearing Doe hair from The Epiphany and eyes by Izzie’s. My nail applier and rings are both from Collabor88. The rings are from Yummy and the nails are Nylon Outfitters.

The honeymoon's over

I also took a pic of my attic. I’m using Disorderly’s gacha collection called Abandonment. It’s so fabulously creepy that it seemed perfect for my haunted house. You can come visit if you haven’t! It will be open through November 11th. If you visit and take any pics, please share them in the Flickr group!

Hello October

October has long been one of my favorite months. I love autumn. Right now it’s snowing outside, the leaves are mostly a glorious gold and it’s just breathtaking. It will be a bit before I add snow in SL, though! I have to savor this season as much as I can! So, I’ve created an apple orchard, a table for “selling” my wares, a pumpkin patch, a cornfield… and I’m still working on my sim! But I had to share some of what I’ve done so far, and I had the cutest autumn ensemble going on! My top is Decoy, available at the current round of Collabor88 until October 6th. My adorable Mary Jane style sneakers are also a Collabor88 release, from Ingenue. I absolutely love these and they come in a wide mix of solids and patterns, so there’s something for everyone. My cozy leggings from Neve can now be found in the Mainstore, and come in a wide variety of colors and prints.

Waiting for a sale

My hair is Athena, by Truth. It was the VIP group gift in September. It’s still available as the group gift, but I don’t know for how much longer! Still, older gifts are available for sale. The VIP group is SO worth being in because you get a multi-style full colorpack hair each month! Athena is one of my all-time favorite hairs in SL. I love all of these rebellious, wild curls and it almost makes me want to cut my RL curls shorter. But then add in the cute side braid and style options and it’s really versatile, too. My Catwa skin applier is Olga from [theSkinnery] and it is also at Collabor88 through the 6th. I topped the lips with one of the colors from the Sheer Kiss palette from Pink Fuel. These adorable Jack-o-Lanterns are by Candle and Cauldron and you can buy them individually or in fatpacks per color.

Autumn Ana

LAQ’s been on a roll lately with the mesh heads. Ana is one of the four currently available bento heads at LAQ. I really love this head. The face is so sassy and flirty. I’ve added freckles, also by LAQ, which are really cute. Of course, it’s full on autumn here in Colorado with the aspens changing to yellow, so naturally I have a pumpkin spice latte, courtesy of Reign’s Fall Vibes collection at The Arcade. My hair is from Exile and you can find it at Collabor88 The hat is optional, but super cute so I had to wear it. I’m wearing eyes from [theSkinnery].

Ana

My shorts and cozy top are both Neve releases currently available at FaMESHed. My knee high socks are appliers from Izzie’s and the woven boots I’m wearing are from Reign’s second machine (Fall Essentials) at The Arcade. My bag is also Reign, and it’s rigged which makes me so happy. It’s from the same Fall Vibes gacha collection as my latte.

Lucie’s Dream Closet

In recent months I’ve found myself liking pink a lot. I was never the pink sort of girl. In fact, as a kid I despised pink. I think I resented the fact that, as a girl, I was just supposed to automatically like pink. So now, as a grown ass woman, I’m finding in my 40s that pink is okay after all. I originally thought of calling these pics Pretty In Pink, but tbh I’d be shocked if I hadn’t already done that, because hello, 80s girl here. So then I thought of the big Reign closet from a couple of Arcade rounds ago and thought well it IS kind of a Barbie pink… and went for the play on Barbie’s Dream House. Which, btw, I never owned. 😦 So sad, right? Anyway.

If you’ve been hiding in your giant, walk-in, two story closet you may have missed that Collabor88 is celebrating its 6th birthday! Crazy, right? I’ve bought items from every round, which is possibly even crazier. This month’s theme was a brightly colored plastic one, though, and I admit… I was a bit hesitant because plastic just isn’t my thing. However, the designers pulled off some really clever interpretations of the theme and I wound up liking quite a lot more than I expected! Great for shopping, less for my budget, but hey the big birthday round only happens once a year, right? Anyway, here I’m wearing a couple of items you can find at Collab’s birthday event. One is the jelly bracelets from Atomic. Raise your hand if you had tons of these as a kid… oh, wait hard to type with one hand in the air. We called them “Madonna” bracelets, as she made them iconic. They were cheap and we did all sorts of weird things with the way we wore them. So I naturally had to have them. My shiny pink dress by Decoy with the awesome scoop neck is also from Collab’s birthday round.

My adorable shoes are from the new Blush event. They are by friday and they have an option (for Maitreya only) that includes socks. I went sockless here for this look. These sandals are so cute. They’ve got a crazy platform heel and the bows are just too cute. Blush closes August 28th, and it’s full of so much cute that you definitely want to check it out ASAP. My hair is by Exile. This style was released for FLF in 2 exclusive color huds. I don’t know for sure if it will be available as a regular Mainstore release, but I love it SO MUCH that I really hope so. I love the heavy, blunt bangs, and the long pulled back style.

Lucie's Dream Closet

Now, let’s talk about my head (and other strange things you hopefully only say when talking about SL!). This is Greer, one of four(!!!) new LeLutka bento heads. All of the bento heads got an awesome update recently, which you can read about on the LeLutka blog. Among the updates are a lot of new animations, which are really cute. As always, the LeLutka heads are preloaded with skins by Glam Affair. You get all the tones, and I’m wearing Jamaica here. I am wearing one of the Tropical eyeshadow colors from Mila, available at Cosmetic Fair, which runs through August 31st. I used the blender to fade it a bit, but the colors are all gorgeous and I love how well they applied! My eyes by [theSkinnery] are another Blush release, and they come in a lot of fun, flirty colors. My earrings and necklace are Cae’s Shooting Star collection.
