Homeward Bound

It’s been a while since I did a home blog post, so I have a few pics to share. I’m not feeling very chatty tonight… shocking, I know! So, I’m just gonna give ya the goods.

This beautiful bed from Kuro was for The Theme Park’s Vintage Romance edition, which comes to an end tomorrow at 11:59 pm SLT. I checked with Luana, though, and this will be available in her mainstore soon, too!

Vintage Dreams

I’ve blogged these recycled theater chairs from Junk before, but I just adore them, so I incorporated them into my living room again.

Bright Ideas

This is the loft space in the Trompe Loeil Sparrow Hill Lodge for Collabor88 for January. You have just a few days to go grab it (and lots of other goodies) at its discounted price. I wanted to make an artist’s loft.

The Artist's Loft

This new living room set from Sway’s comes in two color palettes, warm & cool. Plus, there’s a special Valentine’s Day version at a newer event called The Collage, so check that out, too. This is the cool version.

Always time for shoes & books

I wanted to squeeze in one final Shoetopia post, and this time I’m pairing with another Geeks ‘n’ Nerds Fair look and some home decor.

LaRoo released three new styles at Shoetopia, named Kim, Khloe and Kourtney. I’m wearing the Kourtney booties in these pics. All three are awesome, and I will absolutely be sharing the other two styles in the future. I paired these adorable booties with Fishy Strawberry’s Geeks ‘n’ Nerds ensemble. The pieces are sold individually and come in a lot of color options. I love tartan, so I had to wear that! My cute book poses are from Nani, and can also be found at Geeks ‘n’ Nerds.

There's always time for shoes & books

I decorated more of my Neva Captain’s Home from Scarlet Creative (at the current round of Collabor88). I love the fireplace in this house (note: I added fire, it’s not included). It’s so charming and rustic. The desk set is from Lark’s Bird Nerd set, another Geeks ‘n’ Nerds Fair item. The cocoa tray on the little rug is a new release from Dysfunctional Designs. It’s scripted to be cocoa or tea and also has multiple texture options. The Geek wall art is from Collage, and I’m pretty sure you can guess what event that is available at! The Winter Is Coming blocks set is from floorplan’s Geeks ‘n’ Nerds offerings, perfect for any Game Of Thrones fans.

Winter Is Coming

Here is a pic of my backyard, featuring a new release from Sway’s… the Christmas tree! This tree comes in lots of colors, but I went au naturel since I was putting it in my yard. Inside, on the cozy rug are some books that are part of Sari-Sari’s Geeks ‘n’ Nerds set, as is the Whovian Tea Time set on the desk. The egg decor and calendar are other items that make up Lark’s Bird Nerd set.

Winter in the woods

Be sure to check out Shoetopia, which closes tomorrow night! And the Geeks ‘n’ Nerds Fair is also a must visit event, especially for those who love geeky and nerdy things!

League for Shoetopia

League has released some utterly adorable winter wedge boots for Shoetopia, which opens tomorrow!!! I paired these boots with a pair of “jeggings” from coldLogic. If you’re looking for mesh pants that work with boots, these are worth checking out. They have multiple lengths, one of which is shortened and ideal for the faux tucked look. Trust me, there are a LOT of unreal boots to be had at Shoetopia, so you may need to invest in these pants (like I did)! My cozy oversized sweater is from U.F.O. for the current round of Collabor88. I fell in love with this sweater and had to have it. This pose is one my husband made for our Shoetopia gacha. It’s one of the rare poses that comprise our five pose pack Footloose. We have ten other “show off my shoes” inspired poses, too.

The Wood Shed

Here’s a closer look at the gorgeous boots! They come with a hud and have a lot of options (have I mentioned that I love options?). They also come in a wide variety of colors, so there’s definitely one (or two… or three… or hell, buy the fatpack!) that will work for your winter wardrobe needs!

More shoes soon!

Candy Fair 2013

Candy Fair 2013 opened on Friday, and it’s three sims full of candy-inspired creations. There is a lot of cute to be had at this event, so definitely check it out!

I love the Kuro Candy Kitchen that you can find at the event. The kitchen and bar are both part of it, and there are tons of gorgeous accessories available for it. The mugs, cups, bowls, plates and flowers in the picture below are all a part of this set. The stool I am sitting on is also a part of the kitchen, as is the trash bin in the corner. Many of these items are either texture change or come in multiple colors. Oh, the cute candy wall art is from Collage, and it’s also at Candy Fair. I set up my candy kitchen in the Scarlet Creative Autumn Reclaim Store/Open Home. This was part of last month’s Collabor88, but hopefully will be available at the mainstore because it’s really cute.

Choices

The yummy candy on the bar is from Marmelade. These pieces are not just pretty decorations! They dispense goodies! Here’s a closer look. Don’t they look delicious?

Sweet Treats

My cute romper is another Candy Fair find, this time from Osito. My hair is Vida, a recent Truth release, which will also make an appearance in my next post, but in a different color. I know, shocking! The yummy looking little cupcake hat on my head is appropriately from yumyums. The pose, which includes the gumballs I am so badly juggling, is from Infiniti Poses, and is also at Candy Fair. As is my cute lollipop necklace from tea.s and it comes in a lot of adorable colors. This skin is just one of so many available at Candy Fair. This is Donna from WoW Skins.

So much for my career as a juggler

More from Candy Fair soon! In the meantime, go check it out for yourself!

My Bungalow: Part 1

I fell in love with the Barnesworth Anubis Carraway Bungalow that was part of Collabor88 in August. It’s a big house, so it took me a while to decorate it! I have a LOT of pics for this house, so I decided to break it down into two posts.

I modified this house a good bit, in terms of textures. Some of the walls I just tinted, and some I used wallpaper on. Unlike some mesh houses, that was possible with this one. It took some trial and error, but it was a lot of fun to do. I like customizing houses, so that they feel more “me.” I never used to do this, but my BFF Rosa got me hooked, and now I love it.

So, here are the pics… or at least the first batch. I’ll try to keep my comments to a minimum. As always, please click through the pics to see them bigger in Flickr. You’ll also find notes on each pic with where each item is from. If I missed something (I hope not!) or you want more info, feel free to ask in the comments here or on Flickr, or IM me in world.

Autumn Daze

Porch

I have to say this… the Carraway comes with several gorgeous built in cabinets and shelves. The best part? They are all functional, meaning they open!

Mantle

I wanted to particularly point out the adorable Friends artwork seen in this next collage because it is an item from Sway’s for the current round of The Arcade, and you only have a few more days to go try to win it!

It's the little things

Live comfortably

This college shows the dining room built in, which I photographed with some doors open, so you could get a better idea for what I mean about what an awesome detail this is.

And everyone was invited

The second post will be coming soon, so keep an eye out for it!
