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!

Champagne & Music

I was in a mood to decorate, and I had this lovely living room set from Atelier Visconti for The Garden. I wanted a dramatic coffee table, and DIGS has this tufted coffee table that felt it would go perfectly with the rest of the set. I added DIGS end tables and lamps from Pixel Mode’s Josephine (also at The Garden), and voila! But then I needed a piano, and ofc some books… and assorted decor. After which point, I was fairly tired so I relaxed on my Alouette piano.

Sing me a song

But I was all dressed up, so I decided that maybe I needed to go out for a drink. Except I wasn’t really feeling in the mood for company, so what to do? Ah! A solo glass of champagne in my clock tower bar.

Finally summer…

There are so many events happening right now… some of our regular faves, like Collabor88. And then there’s Fashion For Life, which is a massive, amazing event that raises money for the American Cancer Society. I’ve written before about why fundraisers like FFL and RFL are meaningful for me, so I won’t go into that again. But suffice it to say, I think the good these events do is amazing and impressive. And I love the theme of Wanderlust for this year. You can read more about the event here, and there is a complete list of slurls on this page, too. There are a lot of sims for this event, which means lots of opportunities to shop and help raise money for a great cause!

I’m wearing the new Summer II from Glam Affair, which can be found at the new round of Collabor88. I fell hard for Glam Affair’s Summer last year, so I was happy to see another take on this beautiful skin. My adorable sun dress is from SySy’s for Fashion For Life, as is the playful suitcase pose/prop by NanTra. These strappy sandals are SLink add ons from fri.day, also at Collabor88. My bracelet by Theosophy, the chairs on my deck, and the bookcase you can see a glimpse of inside are also all items from Collab. The chairs are by Trompe Loeil, the bookcase is from Schadenfreude.

Finally here

Here’s a close up, to show you both the gorgeous Glam Affair skin and also the Cae jewels for Serafilms Gone With The Wind round, which opens today (June 12th)! I’m also debuting my new shape here. I’ve been tweaking my face for a few days, and I like the end result. I’m sure most people won’t see a huge difference, but to me it’s a fairly dramatic change, lol.

Summer haze

More soon… I’m getting back into the swing of things after traveling and dealing with a flare up.

Witchy Business

I love Halloween. I love autumn. Both of these things have been discussed before, so I won’t wax on about them, but I had to say it again. Collabor88’s October round is just chock full of autumnal, Halloweenish goodness. If you’ve not yet been, you definitely should go over there before it ends because while the items are definitely inspired by the season, most of them will work year-round!

Kuro In Motion’s recent prop pose release was very helpful in my quest to complete the scene I’d created using the Remedy Caravan that Scarlet Creative has in this round of Collabor88. I fell in love with this caravan, and I bought it even though at the time I had absolutely no clue whatsoever what I’d do with it! Once I’d collected some other Collab items, like the chair from floorplan and the tarot cards from flowey, I figured it out. I knew this little caravan would be perfect for the travelling fortune telling witch on the go. My original concept was to wear something that felt… well… vintage. But then I built this sexy menswear inspired outfit entirely around Truth’s Dylan hair, and I realized I would simply be a modern, business woman witch on the go! Here I am resting up for my next session!

Witch at rest

Fortune tellers require clients, so I snagged a friend to be my victim. Uhm. Client. Though, to be honest, the cards were not kind to her.

Witchy Business

In this last pic, you get a better look at my Eerie jewelry from Cae, which is seasonally appropriate. However, it’s definitely not limited to just the Halloween season. You can change the charms via a hud, and there are many options including the moons I am showing here. There are also ghosts, owls, cats, witch hats, spiders, pumpkins and bats… you definitely need to check out this set! I love moons and owls, so I know I will get year-round use of this set.

I’m also wearing the newly released Vera skin from Glam Affair in the Jamaica tone. I feel like a broken record when I blog Glam Affair because a. I always seem to love each new release even more than the last and b. I just can’t stop talking about how gorgeous they are! Vera is no exception to the trend. It’s flawless.
