Opening the house for the season

I’m going away on vacation in RL in just over 6 hours… and I’ve been working on my beach home (in the sky) in SL, so I decided to do a blog post inspired by the merging of RL and SL.

It was a lot of work doing all that cleaning, so I had some friends help out. And maybe I took a break whilst I had them work. I’m just so comfy in my new coldLogic leggings and summery top. Definitely go get your summer fashion fix with coldLogic. The past few releases have been perfect for the arrival of warm weather, beachy days and fun with friends and family! Oh, and these curtains – brand new from LAQ Decor – have so many awesome, seasonal texture options and the anchors seemed perfect for a beach house!

Opening the beach house for the season

Okay, I’ve got to get to sleep, so no rambling today… see ya when we return, sometime after June 4th!

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!

Desert Dreams

I have some Collabor88 home style to share today. You still have a brief time to go grab these goodies, so be sure to head over before their big birthday bash comes to an end.

Kuro is a guest at Collab’s birthday, and has a gorgeous bedroom set. I decided to take the opportunity to showcase it in one of the rooms of Jasmine, Scarlet Creative’s prefab available at the event. As is a hallmark of Charlotte Bartlett’s work, this build features beautiful windows, and plenty of them! The detail is really stunning, as you can see below.

Desert Dreams

I really love the fountains and planters from Lark Collab, too. Here, I am featuring the fountain. I love water, and I figured my desert inspired home could use some! This was also photographed in the Jasmine home.

Ariel's Fountain

Stay tuned for one final post of goodies from Collabor88’s birthday sometime in the next couple of days!

Happy Birthday, Collabor88!

The current round of Collabor88 celebrates three years of this awesome event. As is the custom every year, the birthday edition is HUGE! I have many things I want to share so I won’t blather on.

First up a bit of decor. All the times in this pic, save for my Turnip’s skydome and Botanical cacti, are from Collab’s birthday bash. Full credits will follow, but this beautiful build is from Scarlet Creative. There’s a version of this build without the bright colors, but I really loved them so I went for the colorful one.

Where the goddess relaxes

If you’re a skin junkie (like me), you’re in luck because there are multiple skin stores participating in Collab’s birthday round. Below you can see one of the versions of Belleza’s lovely Grace skin, available at Collabor88. My gorgeous jewels by Cae are coming soon to the next round of Fit For A Princess.

Lady In Waiting

I have been lacking in home and garden posts of late, so I decided to stage my pic in the lovely new Lima Bean home from Windsong (formerly emm*shop), with some beautiful, romantic furniture from Pixel Mode. My lovely lingerie is by Blacklace.

Long Distance Love

I will have more from Collabor88’s birthday round in the next few days… stay tuned!

Lost in words

The Wild Things gacha festival is under way, and there are some awesome goodies to be had. I’m featuring items from 8F8 along with items that are a Kuro and Consignment collaboration. These are both at the Wild Things event. 8f8 did this gorgeous series called Inside The Story which, as a bibliophile, I just fell in love with immediately. Kuro & Consignment’s Max’s Hideout set is full of goodies, including more books and the adorable tent seen here. Also, Balaclava has made a beautiful, functional gift clock that you can grab for free at the event, and you can see that here, too. There are also packets of cookies from Kalopsia (more from that adorable set to come in future posts!)

Time stands still when lost in a good book

The 8f8 set includes this paper boat that has poses. It’s seriously cute.

Wynn the Wombat has Wanderlust

This weekend marks the opening of the Wild Things Gacha Festival. I have a couple of adorable items to show you from that (and more to come), and I combined them with some of the Collabor88 items from the current round, which has a safari chic theme. Also, Hair Fair ends this weekend, so be sure to get there and check it out. Remember, each purchase helps raise funds for Wigs For Kids, which is a fabulous charity. I’m wearing one of the styles from Eaters Coma. I love braids, so this style was right up my alley. Wynn the Wombat is from Schadenfreude (name not included, lol) and clearly she has wanderlust and wants to travel with me. She’s stomping down the overly full suitcase from Kuro (at The Theme Park’s Summer Vacation edition) while the giraffe from Sway’s for Wild Things looks on curiously. And all of this is happening inside the stunning Rivershire Watermill Trompe Loeil has out for Collabor88.

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.
