Tie the knot

Happy Friday! I have a couple of Fifty Linden Friday releases to show you. It’s also the final couple of hours for Fashion For Life, so do be sure you check it out before it ends at 11:59 pm SLT tonight!

The adorable bench I am sitting on is from Sway’s, as is the knot artwork. These items are both available for L$50 for FLF today, so go grab them! Also for FLF, from fri.day, are my cute heels. The artwork and this gorgeous lingerie set from Blacklace inspired this photo… the concept of “tying the knot.” The candles from Collage for We ❤ Role-Play helped to set the perfect mood.

Tie the knot

My gorgeous skin is Evie by Lumae for The Cart Sale. This beautiful skin can be yours for just L$10!

Bargain beauty

Happy weekend to you all!

Fashion For Life

Fashion For Life is winding down, and the event has already raised a tremendous amount of money for the American Cancer Society. You can check the current amount that’s been raised right here.

For this post, I’m featuring the gorgeous Shae gown from Miamai. Miamai is located on the Wander sim at Fashion For Life, which runs through June 21st. This is a 75% donation item, and it’s really stunning. I love how unique it is, and how detailed. The beautiful prop pose is from Infiniti’s gacha for the Tales Of Fantasy event, which runs through June 30th. My skin is Livy from Glam Affair for The Arcade. I’ve added some mascara tears to it, but don’t worry…I plan to show you a better look at this gorgeous face soon.

The Widow Weeps

The house I’m standing on is incredible, and I plan to show more pics of it in a coming post (I’m still decorating!). It’s Scarlet Creative’s offering for the current round of Collabor88, and here is the truly amazing, remarkable part… it’s just L$88. No, for real. I know, right? Incredible deal, definitely one not to miss. Though what I’m standing on is far more like a pergola, it made me think of a widow’s walk, and the rest of the picture was inspired from there… the dress has this old-fashioned feel I love, and the pose is one that, to me, captures both sorrow and also acceptance, in a truly beautiful and unique way.

Nostalgia

Today is my 5th rezz day. I’m kind of shocked by the fact that I lasted three weeks in SL, let alone five years. But I’m so grateful I did, because I have made some incredible friends during this journey. There’s my BFF Rosa. We’ll be friends 5 years on February 4th, and I can tell her absolutely anything. I know she’ll keep all my secrets safe. There’s my “forever” sister, my fellow “Posh Orphan,” Isley who is like… some freaky extension of myself in all the best ways. All of my awesome Plurk friends, who are always ready to give hugs and support, and who tolerate my crazy posts. And most of all, my incomparable RL husband, with whom I began this journey five years ago. I’ve learned so much about myself through my SL experiences, and though there’s been hurt and heartache, I consider myself fortunate that it’s been primarily a very positive experience.

So, maybe you’ve guess I’m feeling a little nostalgic today, huh? Well, that makes it a perfect time to show off some of the items from January’s edition of Collabor88, which has a theme and color palette that is designed to inspire feelings of nostalgia. My shirt and tie are both from Tres Blah’s offerings for Collabor88. My hair is a recent release from Truth, and I love the long, sleek ponytail. It’s versatile, and would work for more casual looks, as well as more professional, dressier styles. This is something I always love in my fashion pieces. The skirt is from Baiastice for FaMESHed. My shoes are from fri.day for Collabor88… more on those in a moment!

Nostalgia

I’m also wearing the pre-release of the new skin Magenta from Glam Affair. This gorgeous skin is in a new tone – Asia – that I just love. This sneak peek at the Magenta skin is available at The Seasons Story. In this picture, you can also see my beautiful earrings from Cae for the next round of Enchantment, which opens on February 1st. My eyes are from IKON’s Promise line, currently available only at FaMESHed. This line is my favorite yet from IKON, and I’m especially loving the brown shades.

Magenta by Glam Affair

I wanted to show off my sassy manicure, courtesy of Flair for the SLink hands. And here’s a better look at my Miranda shoes by fri.day. These are the first fri.day shoes for use with the High SLink feet, and I really, really love them. They are so elegant, and I’ve always been a fan of the look of ankle straps.

Details matter...

I hope everyone has a fabulous weekend!

Don’t want it to end…

The hardest part of the holidays for me is when they end! I love the decorations, the lights… all the little things that make it magical. Of course, I understand it’s the limited time we use them that makes them so special, but it’s still always sad (for me) to see them go. I’ve had this pesky cold. Not enough to make me spend my days asleep, but it’s a distraction. So, I’ve been taking lots of pics and figured I’d blog some of them, finally, since right now I’m feeling pretty good.

First up… Christmas. On Christmas night I got to spend some quiet time with two friends. The munchkin and I were kind of sleepy, so we made our other friend finish wrapping presents courtesy of Kuro’s Wrapping Gifts prop set (at The Garden). I’m wearing PJs from FateWear and Isley is sleeping in the adorable Waiting For Santa sleeping bag set from O.M.E.N for Collabor88. The adorable dog is from Half+Deer for The Garden. The build is the gorgeous Trilby Dacha from Scarlet Creative, also at Collabor88.

Christmas Friends

Next up, this gorgeous sleigh from Pixel Mode Home for The Garden. There are multiple colors, but I liked the drama of the red & black. There are also Naughty (adult) and Nice (PG) versions, which made me giggle just a bit. It’s gorgeously detailed, and I don’t think this is limited to Christmas at all! I think you can use it all winter long, and you can go grab it at The Garden through January 10th! Especially since the blanket is texture change, making it more versatile. The ground blanket with champagne is included, too!

Sleigh

I have more pics to share, so here we go… this next one features Sway’s Wonderful Life living room set, which is also available at The Garden, as are the cute stockings from Barnesworth Anubis (they are one of the gacha items at this edition of the event). The strewn lights and boxes of Christmas decor are from Second Spaces, and the tree is also from Sway’s.

Christmas

While we were decorating, my naughty KittyCatS got into some mischief! The KittyCatS team really did an amazing job with these Naughty cats. The lights on them even blink, as you can see below. The tree skirt is from tarte. and is one of their gacha items for The Garden.

Naughty Kittens

This next collage features items from The Arcade, which has sadly ended. However, there are still yard sales (just do a search for Arcade yard sales in places), so if you want any of these things, and they aren’t in mainstores, you may be able to find them that way! The gorgeous dining room set is from tarte. and is another item from The Garden. The stockings in the dining room are from Dysfunctional Designs, and they are texture change. Also from Dysfunctional Designs is the cute Christmas tree photo collage on the mantle in the living room. The baking table, and much of the decor on it was from Pixel Mode’s Arcade set, and the hand mixer and tins are from Second Spaces Arcade set. The kitchen shelf was also an Arcade item, this time from Tres Blah.

Christmas Collage

This next pic features Cheeky Pea’s beautiful Yukon kitchen island, and is topped with lots of my Arcade goodies. Featured are items from Second Spaces, Tres Blah, Vespertine and Pixel Mode. If you’d like the name of anything specific, please ask! I normally would list it all, but I want to be sure I get this post done before the holidays are officially over (seeing as it’s New Year’s Day!).

Bake ALL the things!

I wish all of you a wonderful 2014. I want to especially say thank you to all the wonderful designers who have supported my blogging efforts, and to those of you take the time to read.

Tis the season…

I feel like December has just been running away from me! How is it already almost Christmas?! Well, I have a few things to share, and I won’t ramble on (well, I will try not to) because I know many of us are rushing about trying to get ready for the holidays. But can I just say this about December? Holy events and sales! I do love December, even if it likes to sneak by me.

First up, I borrowed my BFF Rosa, and we got comfy in this adorable igloo from What Next. This igloo is What Next’s Arcade offering for this edition, and you have time still to go try your luck. I’m using the Oh Deer Rare version because I love the little mailbox that is included in the rares. Oh, the pretty, sparkly kittens keeping Rosa company (while I am on the lookout for polar bears!) are two of the Purr Balls from KittyCatS holiday collections. There will be more pics of holiday kittens to come because somehow I wound up with ten of them! I know, I know. I need an intervention. My adorable coat dress, hair and boots are both Collabor88 items. The dress is from The Secret Store, the hair (with hat) is Lamb, and the boots are Ingenue.

Polar Bear Lookout

Next up on the agenda! Blacklace always does the loveliest lingerie, and you can count on Mariska Simons for gorgeous seasonal versions, too. This set is one of the Oakley sets designed for those special festive moments. In my case, it’s relaxing on my new Tia sofa that I snagged at The Garden. I bought the entire living room set. I love the vintage design, and it’s hud controlled with texture change options. I’m using one of the seasonal ones, but it has plenty of gorgeous year round options, too. Speaking of vintage, how awesome is the space heater? I HAD to have that. It’s from 7 Emporium for The Mens Dept and it’s beautifully made, like all 7 items (and can be turned off). My hair is Melita, one of the six new styles Truth recently released, and I love the long, loose curls pulled over one shoulder. The house I am in is the Trilby Dacha, Scarlet Creative’s absolutely stunning Collabor88 home for December.

Santa, baby...

Finally, I have to show you this gorgeous new Glam Affair skin, Kaelyn. I love this skin. It’s just so soft and beautiful, which is classic Glam Affair. I am also debuting my new shape (only the face is different). I got bored! Rosa says I don’t look like “her Lucie” anymore, but I’m loving the change. My gorgeous eyes are the latest release from IKON, and they are mesh! You can find them at the current round of FaMESHed.

Kaelyn by Glam Affair

I hope to do a decor post tomorrow! I have so many wonderful Christmas goodies to show you.

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!

Getting my geek on

The Geeks ‘n’ Nerds Fair opened this week, and this is an event that every geek/nerd simply must visit! There is something for nerds and geeks of all types… and the build for the event is very cute and easy to navigate (and I say that as someone who gets lost at pretty much every event ever). I’m definitely a serious geek/nerd and usually walk around in a group tag that says “Proud Dork.” So this fair was just about custom made for me (and people like me!).

I’m wearing the jumper of a dress from SySy’s for this event, along with eyeliner from Mons that’s also at the Geeks ‘n’ Nerds Fair. My awesome boots are from fri.day. fri.day is a part of the Geeks ‘n’ Nerds fair, but these boots are a Shoetopia release! You still have a few days to head over to Shoetopia and grab all the gorgeous shoes. Remember, this is a charity event, so every designer has out at least one 100% donation item, and the charity, Soles 4 Souls is working to help, among others, the survivors of Typhoon Haiyan. This is a way you can do your own part to help a great cause, while having fun shopping, so do be sure to check it out before it ends on the 30th!

My Favorite Dorks

The build I used in these pics is the Neva Captain’s House from Scarlet Creative for the current round of Collabor88. It’s a really unique, quirky build and I fell in love with it the minute I saw it. I plan to take some more pics of it soon, but in the meantime, do take a minute to visit the demo at Collabor88! It’s a not-to-be-missed home for anyone who loves the unusual.

Most of the decor items are from the Geeks ‘n’ Nerds Fair. You will find the full credits at the bottom of this post, with the ones available at the fair tagged accordingly. My cute pose, complete with prop, is from Kuro In Motion. It’s not a fair item, but seemed appropriate for the post!

Dork Side Collage

To those who celebrate, have a wonderful Thanksgiving! More from me soon.
