Autumn Leaves

I spent a couple of weeks working on setting up a skydome for a last call autumn pic. I’d hoped to get it up Thanksgiving weekend, but we had too much fun in RL. So here it is, just before I move into holiday/winter frenzy!

When I got to thinking about this post, I decided on the title Autumn Leaves. I liked the play on words, as we transition into winter! We had a freakishly warm autumn here in Colorado (not good for wildfires). But tonight it’s properly cold and snowing and both things make me feel settled and peaceful.

In my Turnip’s Skydome, however, it’s still looking pretty autumnal. If you look closely, there are a few signs a touch of snow fell recently, but mostly it’s about a cozy stone cottage, sitting by the fire, enjoying cozy blankets and settling in with a warm pumpkin spice latte and some good books.

Autumn Leaves

LAQ’s second mesh head is called Maxine. It’s gorgeous, and feels very impish when worn with the default skin applier Evelyn (included in HUD w/purchase)! It’s one of the heads that feels most “me,” although I readily admit I am a bit of a chameleon when it comes to my avatar’s face. Of course, the LAQ heads are OMEGA compatible out of the box, but I definitely recommend demoing skins that aren’t made for them specifically, as they won’t all look right.

Thoughtful & Thankful

Finally, this last pic is really a collage of 3 pics. I strongly encourage you to follow the link to Flickr to see it full size so you can take in all the details.

Thanksgiving Cottage

Hope those of you in the US had a lovely Thanksgiving!

Candy Cane Crush

Just a seasonal quickie today… I was shooting the ad for this new prop pose we released over the weekend at Repose, and I liked how it came out and decided to edit it for blogging. The pose is still 60% off through today, if you want to go snag it! Me and my alt are both wearing a new release from Valentina E. Couture that is just utterly gorgeous. You can find it at The Fantasy Collective’s birthday round!

Candy Cane Crush

On a final note, my alt is wearing Magika’s First Light hair, which is part of the Linden Labs 12 Days Of Savings Marketplace event. So you can grab it here at a discounted price for a limited time!

Bohemian Rhapsody

So, here’s a secret. I love boho style. Okay, maybe that’s not much of a secret, but it’s still true. So when I heard the latest round of Uber had a bohemian theme, I knew I was in glorious trouble… the sort that gets you grounded as a teenager but it is so worth it you don’t even care. That sort of trouble. Add in some things from the wonderful new Shiny Shabby event and I was a double goner.

First, a bit of decor. I love rugs. I think there tends to be a major shortage of well done rugs in SL. So when I saw the rugs Junk had done for Uber, I was elated and knew they must be mine. The flipped up edge of this rug made me think of the adorable puppy and kitten playing that Ispachi did for December’s Arcade. It seems like this is a rug that had been frolicked on! The pile of books is Zerkalo, from their gacha at Shiny Shabby, and the rose in the vase on top of that is from the floorplan/Consignment collaboration that is (appropriately) part of Collabor88 this round. The gorgeous drapes are also at Collab, from Half-Deer. And I have to say, I rarely buy curtains/drapes in SL. I’ve seen other people make them work in amazing ways, but I always feel like I fail. These were so beautiful I couldn’t resist, and I thought they dressed up the brick wall of my llorisen skybox nicely!

Boho Buddies

In the next pic you get a mix of fashion and decor… this insanely gorgeous skin, with its luscious pout is Alice from Glam Affair. Alice is available at both Kustom 9 and Shiny Shabby right now, but this particular makeup is from the Shiny Shabby edition. My hair is also from Shiny Shabby. It’s by Tableau Vivant and it’s the debut of a new “frizzy” texture hud. Which, btw, I love. Maybe it’s because I have naturally curly hair in RL… though my frizz never manages to look quite this, well… cool? The outfit is Foxes for Uber… the tops and skirts are sold separately and come in lots of colors. I’m not usually into gold, but this I liked enough to overlook the gold (and on the peach it’s kind of a rose gold more than a gold gold which helps). The posters and couch bed thingy (that’s a technical term) are both from tarte at the current Uber… the stars are from tarte from the last Uber. The scroll with the arrow is another of floorplan’s February Collabor88 offerings.

Boho chic

On a personal note, I’m finally off that wretched medication that was making me have near-daily migraines, and I’m feeling a lot better. So expect more from me in March than you got in February!

A place for romance

I needed to create a scene for shooting an ad recently, and I liked it so much I decided to expand on it and blog it! It seemed perfect for the Valentine’s Day season, such as it is. It’s just so sumptuous and feels like a room ready for romance!

My 6th rezz day…

So Saturday marked 6 years since I joined SL. It’s been quite the journey, and the past 6 years of my RL have been, at times, very turbulent. So there’s been a comfort in the constant that is SL. And I’ve made some truly amazing friends.

I’ve grieved for friends who have died in RL. I’ve cried over the end of friendships, and celebrated the birth of new ones. I’ve fought and made up with friends. I’ve co-owned two stores with my RL and SL husband, with whom I joined SL back in 2009. I’ve been an event owner, an event creator and an event owner. We own a sim. My first job was as a stripper when I was less than two weeks old, and lasted all of an hour (before Rad realized he was, in fact, jealous, lol). I’ve been a photographer, doing both studio and wedding photos, with plenty of repeat clients. And of course, I’ve been a blogger for the past almost four years, first microblogging on Flickr, and then starting this official blog in 2012. And last year I even bought my own domain. I figured I’d be bored with blogging – or even with SL entirely – by now, but that just hasn’t happened so far.

I’ve lived quite the Second Life so far… and I don’t see myself leaving any time soon. Thank you to all who have been a part of it, and to the friend who let me “borrow” her bedroom for the below picture.

Princess in waiting

I can honestly say I still love SL… I still find creativity and fun and friendship here. I am grateful and happy to have such an outlet in my life.

Hello 2015!

I don’t know about anyone else, but I’m having a hard time with the whole “wow, it’s another new year already feeling!” But ready or not, 2015 is here! So I threw myself a party for the new year, complete with a buffet and a sparkly dress and some fabulous shoes and jewels and a gorgeous new skin from Glam Affair available at the new round of Uber. My 2015 sign is from Sway’s. It includes built in poses that are a lot of fun, but not very dress friendly, so I’m using a Ploom pose instead. Whether used as decor or to pose on, though, this is seriously cute. There is also an elegant silver and gold version available.

Hello 2015

My jewels are from Cae, and the pearl ring on my right hand is new for Fit For A Princess. It’s so delicate and pretty.

January Jewels

When the party was over, the poor puppy was utterly exhausted, and curled up in his bed by the fireplace… the mantle was still decorated for the season and I couldn’t resist snapping a pic.

Not a creature was stirring

Wishing you all a wonderful 2015!

Avatar In A Box Challenge

So, I read Berry’s blog post where she participated in a challenge presented by Vanessa Blaylock called Avatar In A Box. It’s inspired by a cool, real life art installation, and as soon as I saw it, I knew what I had to do.

I just had to be me.

You see, I regularly wear boxes in SL. I also frequently wear houses, or entire folders, or attach things instead of deleting them and go flying across my parcel to the object. Yes, even in SL, I am a world class klutz. It’s okay. It’s part of my charm. 😀 In fact, this morning I was gifted a Trompe Loeil giftcard. And I was wearing the box within seconds of it landing in my inventory, and I can’t even tell you HOW it happened. I’d have taken a pic of that for this, but it was on my head and I didn’t want to hide my pretty skin from Glam Affair for Collabor88 or the adorable hair by Tableau Vivant.

So, without further ado… my challenge pic. This is totally raw, as I uploaded it straight from SL to Flickr.

Avatar In A Box Challenge

This is a fun challenge, that will undoubtedly result in lots of creative, intriguing entries. Definitely one to follow, even if you don’t participate yourself!

The Faces of We <3 Role-Play

There’s still a couple of days left to shop We ❤ Role-Play. There is no doubt my favorite release at the current round is Artisan Fantasy's Snowden Peaks set (featured here and here and in many posts to come, I’m sure), but this round is full of amazing finds. And if, like I am, you’re a skin addict? This round is a gold mine for you! I already blogged the gorgeous Imabee! skin in this post, but there are also gorgeous releases from La Petite Morte, PXL and Mudskins. There are more dramatic, fantasy type makeups for PXL and for Mudskins, and PXL even has fantasy skintones available. I went for the more mainstream looks, though, to show that even if you’re not into RP, there’s something for you! I’m also wearing the new Lillian eyes from Buzzeri in these pics, which are available at Kuston 9. Oh, and in the pic for Emmy, you also see the brand new Uni ears from Soul, which are another release for We ❤ Role-Play. I'm wearing them with Emmy because La Petite Morte is one of the stores that has so far released appliers for these ears (and I suck at matching!). The appliers are at the LPM mainstore, though… not at We ❤ Role-Play.

Faces of We 3 Role-Play

The sweater I have on is from ISON. It’s a holiday version of the previously released Angora Sweater. This is so cool… it comes with a hud that allows you to add snowflakes, as if you’ve been out in a snow storm. It also lets you hide the big snowflake. So you can just have these gorgeous fuzzy sweaters in totally non-wintry/Christmas-y versions, too. They come in three colors, all of which you’ll see in this post because I fatpacked them. Why? Well, on top of being adorable, these benefit the Canadian Red Cross with a 50% donation for each sale! How can you pass that up? I don’t know how long they will be available, so be sure to head over today to grab yours.

It’s good weather for skating, and I happen to have some new skating poses. This one is from Repose, and created by my husband. The frozen pond is from Dysfunctional Designs, and it is also available at We ❤ Role-Play for a few more days. Remember, everything at We ❤ Role-Play is discounted, so it's definitely worth a trip over there. As if that's not incentive enough, there are some generous designer gifts under the tree. For more about that, check out the catalog on the We ❤ Role-Play blog.

Winter skate

This one is from RACK’s gacha for TLC’s current round. It includes beautiful, vintage-y ice skates created by the designer behind ISPACHI. I used my sometimes MALT to model one of the coats from the newest FATEwear release. Like my ISON sweater, it has a snowy option (as do the hat and scarf that come with it).

Help!

Finally, one last pic, this time with adorable boots on. These are from fri.day, also at Kustom 9. And the fire pit, complete with animations is part of What Next’s Winter Harvest set.

It's a marshmallow world

Finally, I included this last pic to better show off the new Eternity engagement/wedding ring combo from Cae. It’s absolutely stunning, and like all Cae jewelry, comes with a ton of options for a fabulous price.

Warming up

Hope everyone is enjoying their holidays!

The Writer’s Winter Retreat (Part 1)

This is the first part of a post based on my contest entry for Love To Decorate’s Show Us Your Cozy contest. I didn’t just create a scene… I created a story for it, and my last post leads to this story. So if you missed that, be sure to check it out here. So, here’s the story… and the first set of pics. More to come, and this will be credits intensive since there’s a lot of detail.

Winter was rapidly approaching, and with it, Christmas and New Year’s celebrations. The Writer had deadlines, but had spent so little time with her love thus far this holiday season.

Perhaps, she thought, a winter respite was needed… a retreat from the chaos of the holidays, from the parties of nameless faces and the crowds of the mall. Someplace where she could relax, do her work and yet still share plenty of quiet, intimate moments with the love of her life and their beloved pets.

A cabin in the woods, one cozy room with all the festive warmth of Christmas, an antique writer’s desk where she could get tend to her work, a comfy sleeping bag for two in front of a roaring fire… an idyllic winter wonderland, perfect for sledding, building snowmen and warming up in a natural hot spring fed pool. This was where to hibernate this December, though they would not be alone… tucked away in a quiet corner of the cabin, a special little family was also celebrating this Christmas!

Perhaps a bit of magic happens here, in this cabin in the north… a special kind of Christmas magic, where animals roam peacefully, and a worn old garage hides a mysterious and beautiful sleigh. Could it possibly be? But surely that’s just a myth!

Welcome to the lair of the Writer’s Winter Retreat… a peaceful, cozy holiday awaits, complete with cocoa, wine, good food, plenty of romance and a dash of Christmas magic.

Faded Love

So the folks at Uber have a contest for the October 50 Shades Of Grey inspired edition. I decided this was a perfect opportunity to push my boundaries a little. So I grabbed an alt and took her to Uber for some goodies (frankly, she’s usually dressed as a guy so this was just fun for a change). Here are the results!

It’s kind of rare for me to really love a picture and not nit pick the ways I could’ve made it better. So to get two I loved from one shoot is really unusual, but I did. In this first one, I loved the vulnerability…

Stay

…and this version is going to be my contest entry. I felt it better showed the gorgeous corset I’m wearing from Shai, along with the lovely bed from Sway’s.

Faded Love

This was a lot of fun, and it definitely pushed me. You still have some time to go to Uber to grab the goodies seen here, along with plenty others! Full fashion and decor credits below.
