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.

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!

Shoetopia is almost here!

Shoetopia has to be one of the year’s most highly anticipated events, and it opens later this week! This is a charity event that benefits Soles 4 Souls, and I’ve seen a preview of the build and it’s stunning. In addition to some of SL’s finest shoe creators, there is a gacha component (because we all need our gacha fix) that will feature a wide variety of items.

I know I am really exited about this event. In this post, I present to you one of the many items that will be available at Shoetopia when it opens November 15th. These adorable flats are from Sax Shepherd Designs, and they come in a wide variety of colors and texture options. They also have a version for SLink feet and a version for system feet, so those of you who aren’t SLink feet wearers can still buy these adorable shoes. They’re like what would result if a saddle shoe and a Mary Jane got together and had a baby. I’m a huge fan of both saddle shoes and Mary Janes, and so I just love these! I am wearing the SLink version, btw.

Shoetopia Preview: Sax Shepherd Designs

I recently bought this beautiful Barnesworth Anubis house at The Garden event (now out at the Mainstore). The minute I saw it, I knew I needed it. I love these rustic style homes, especially for autumn and winter, and I think this will be a lot of fun to decorate for the holidays. Right now you only get to see the outside because the inside, well… it’s cluttered (and not in a good way) with furniture and, uhm, moving boxes (hah).

I am wearing a sweatshirt from Mon Tissu that’s been on my personal “to buy” list for ages. I decided to treat myself to something (that wasn’t from an event, as has been the case so much lately), so I went and checked out my Wishlist to remind me of what I’ve been wanting. I don’t know if you’ve seen the SL Wishlist website, but it’s awesome. I find it an easier way to keep track of the things I want to buy in the future than using the Marketplace favorites list. If you don’t have one of these yet, check it out! With the holidays coming, it can be a helpful thing to use to help friends out with gift buying. I’ve been told more than a few times by my friends that they don’t ever know what to give me because of my blogging. I know it’s hard to shop for my fellow blogger friends, so I figured this is a cool, free and fun way to keep track of my future “must-haves” and if someone is generous enough to give me a gift off it, I’m very grateful. Chrome has an extension for it, and you just click a little box from the Marketplace page to add things to your list. It’s really handy when you’re browsing!

Finally, my new eyes are from A.D.D. Andel! I don’t typically wear mesh eyes. See, I have this nasty habit of wearing folders and I just know me… I’d wind up bald and stark naked with 20 pairs of eyes on. On top of that, I am the world’s fussiest person when it comes to SL eyes, and for ages now (probably well over a year) the only eyes I’ve liked are from IKON. But I have always thought that it might be fun to play with heterochromia, and have different colored eyes in SL. My RL great-grandmother had heterochromia, and she had one grey-blue and one hazel-brown eye. I always thought it was lovely, and I really think these eyes are, too. My gorgeous, adorable skin is Elvi from Glam Affair. This is a Collabor88 release. There are a lot of makeups available for Elvi, in the lovely America tone at the new round of Collabor88 so definitely check it out!

I will have more from Shoetopia soon! Be sure to check back.

Enchantment

SL has become so saturated with events that I am kind of feeling exhausted and overwhelmed by them all. Don’t get me wrong, there are plenty of events that I absolutely love and would be really sad to see end. It’s just that lately I feel like every time I blink, there’s a new event! I say this as the owner (but not creator) of two events. I love my events like they are my babies, so it’s hard for me to say that I think there are too many in SL. But I do. So it takes something really unique, or a special and short term event (like Skin Fair or the highly anticipated Shoetopia) to grab my attention these days. Enchantment does just that. It’s also only every three months, with exclusive items and/or colors. Based on Grimm’s fairy tales, this event is perfect for those who love dramatic, fantasy themed items. The first round is Snow White. The build is spectacular, and there is a wide variety of items, many of which can be used just for every day fun as well as fantasy/RP. You can read more about this new and exciting event here.

My gorgeous gown is from Junbug for Enchantment. It comes in a wide assortment of colors, and all of them are stunning. Junbug is a new to me store, and one I’m thrilled to have discovered! The tiara I’m wearing is a Glam Affair release for FaMESHed, and seemed perfect for this ensemble. It also comes in a lot of color options, which makes me happy! My skin is also Glam Affair, from the new Elvi line which is part of a youth-inspired skin line from Glam. The apple pose prop is from Vanity Poses for Enchantment.

Care for an apple?

I really had fun with these poses. The apple cart is from The Garden and is by Trompe Loeil. The spilled baskets are Dysfunctional Dolly Designs (aka [DDD]). My hair is a new release from Exile, and the romantic, messy updo seemed perfect for a possibly slightly evil queen.

Sweet but tart

Also from the current round of The Garden is this gorgeous camping set from What Next. My outfit is another item from Enchanted by The Library. This ensemble is inspired by the Once Upon A Time television series take on Snow White.

Guardian of the Camp

In this look I am wearing the adorably sweet new Lucie skin from Izzie’s. I was incredibly touched by this release, and consider it an absolute privilege to have been granted such an honor.

The Witch’s Workshop

October has always been a great month for events in SL. Of course, we have all the regular events happening, but right now there are a few special ones, too. Wizarding Faire, The Nest’s Halloween Hunt and Candy Fair in particular. This post is going to be image heavy, so I am not going to chatter on and on. Hey, I heard that sigh of relief! 😛

All three of these events end soon. Candy Fair on October 18th, The Nest’s Halloween Hunt on October 19th, and Wizarding Faire on October 20th. Be sure you don’t miss out. I will note in this post which items are from which events! Some items featured in this post are from another event, the Fantasy Gacha Fair. That event ends on October 31st, so you do have a little more time on that one! Also, please note the sim for that event is an adult sim, so you will need to be age verified. If something’s not clear, just ask in comments.
