A Colorful Challenge

Colors

I’ve had a fairly rotten week so far in RL, and it’s pretty hard to keep my eyes open tonight. Before I crash, though, I will say that several of these items are from the current round of The Challenge. This month’s theme is “colorful,” and I’ve really enjoyed working with such fun, bright colors. I love this comfy Boomerang chair by Sway’s; the pillows are color-change, and lots of sits/animations are included. The suitcase planter from Shutter Field comes in 5 suitcase colors, and your choice of dark or light dirt (I’m showing light here). Oh, and the car in the driveway is a riot. I drove it around my skybox for a while to entertain my daughter. It’s free, so give it a whirl! 🙂

The clock by PRIME comes in 4 different colors, and it keeps RL time so you can keep an eye on how much time you spend in-world, if you need to. There are 3 different versions of this Expressive rug by [ht:home] (another version is in the next photo). The box of mint cookies are part a huge set of kitchen items by Shabby Tabby, some of which are also in the next photo.

Nautical Afternoon (Better Late Than Never!)

livingroom9_001f

First, my apologies for not being timely. Most of these items are/were from Summerfest ’14, which is now over, unfortunately. I took this photo a few weeks ago, before heading out on RL business and a crazy road trip to Portland with my kid. Being busy and exhausted left me no time – or brain cells! – to post. But I had such a great time at Summerfest ’14, and I really sort of liked this photo, so I decided… what the heck. Better late than never, right? Anyway, I’m reasonably certain you can find these items in the stores now, if you like them. I did. 🙂

Island Invasion

Invasion! (blogging soon)

Serena has been busy with RL travel and business, so Duncan and I thought we’d come over and check on the house for her. When we arrived, we were shocked to find the beach had been invaded… by hedgehogs! I have no idea how they got on the island, but they’ve sure made themselves at home.

A few notes about what I’m wearing: my shorts and towel are a recent subscriber gift from FATEwear. There is also a maple leaf version in the box for you Canadians. My hair is the newest group gift from Uw.st. If blue is more your style, you can pick up a a blue version at the current round of Creation.jp, which ends on July 15 (join the free group first). My skin is Davos by 7 Deadly s{K}ins, which you can pick up on sale at Bro Couture. Slink appliers are included in the box.

My pretty, green dress is the latest subscriber gift from DaneMarkZ. I really like the texture and the summery “feel” to it. And this gorgeous ponytail hair is the latest group gift from LeLutka. You get a huge fatpack of colors, so you’re sure to find one you like!

This creamy skin is Glam Affair’s Livy in the Arctic 05 flavor. You can try your luck to win her for 100L at The Arcade Gacha. My pretty jewelry is a group gift from Baby Monkey, and includes the earrings, necklace, and ring, as well as a HUD with 9 different textures. The applier for my nails is a subscriber gift from {Wicked} Peach, and it includes 6 textures for fingers and toes.

N-Core Design recently put out these gorgeous shoes as a group gift. The heel is texture-change, and of course, you can change your pedicure. N-Core shoes come with their own feet, but the skin matching system is pretty awesome. I had no trouble at all matching to my pale Glam Affair skin, although I did have to play with the sizing a teensy bit. The water fountain in the background is a group gift from [we’re CLOSED], and my cute Frenchie pup can be found in a gacha at The Chapter Four.

A few decor items of note… the burger and lemonade meal is a group gift from ISPACHI. You must join the Love to Decorate group to get it (sign is next to the gift). The table, chair, and wall art are a group gift from *ionic*. Both groups are free to join, and there are other gifts for you to snap up while you are in the stores. The Fairy Terrarium and the box with the clipboard, magnifying glass, etc., are also from the Ohmai fairy gacha at The Arcade. The pretty pink rose bush behind the chair is by StoraxTree for The Pier Market. And the payphone on the wall is from the .floorplan. gacha at Kustom9.

Beautiful Music

Valentine’s Day is over, but it’s never to late to make beautiful music together. You can find this lovely, romantic pose at Positure Poses (piano is included). ♥

Blogging soon

While you’re at it, be sure you pick up these beautiful shoes. They’re the Valentine’s Day group gift from Gos Boutique. Gos shoes are always amazing, and these Carrie Pumps are no exception. The come with a stocking option with 5 colors, which I have turned on here in white. But – and here’s the catch – you ONLY have until the end of tomorrow, February 21st, to pick them up at the store. You’ll find them near the landing point by the stairs. (The group is currently 500L to join while the gift is out, but I believe it drops back down to around 50L when there is no gift.)

This sexy negligee is the February gift from ~ghee~. This is a gift for EVERYONE, and no group join is needed – yay! These pretty bracelets are a group gift from Maxi Gossamer, and can be found in the notices. Gavin’s suit is the men’s New Year’s gift from Gizza Creations, and it includes the pants, shirt, and jacket. His shoes can be found in the 0L clearance area at *COCO* Designs. I’ll warn you… they were very small when he first put them on, so they might actually be women’s shoes. But I made them quite a bit larger using the resizer, and they look like they were made for him now. 🙂 Oh, and see that cute picture on the wall behind us? That’s a new dollarbie at floorplan. It comes with 3 “nerdy” romantic textures; this one says “Amin Mela Lle,” which is the Elven phrase for “I love you.” Don’t ask me why I know that. 😉

This gorgeous build is the Dion Skybox, which you can pick up as a free subscriber gift from Llorisen. It’s really a good size and weighs in at only 12 LI. I love the big picture windows. 🙂 I added a few furniture items so you could get an idea of the skybox’s size. The items are listed below, in case you like any of them.

Nostalgic Reflections

Nostalgia : pleasure and sadness that is caused by remembering something from the past and wishing that you could experience it again. ~Merriam-Webster Dictionary

Blogging soon!

Please click to enlarge

I’m an old-fashioned girl at heart. And yes, even a bit nostalgic at times. I love old-school Hollywood glitz and glamour, so you can bet that I’m loving the current round of Collabor88, where this month’s theme is “Raw Nostalgia.” Simple, yet complicated, but oh so romantic. :-)

I had an “instant crush” on this dress from *{Junbug}* as soon as I saw it. As always, the textures are amazing, and the way the dress drapes across the body is so sensual. And if you think the front is gorgeous, you should see the booty (what I wouldn’t give for my RL booty to look that good)! :-) Available in 7 colors, this dress can be yours at the discounted price of 188L at Collabor88.

Blogging soon!

Ok, ok, I know that wasn’t free. But what you can find for free is this lovely skin from ::Bite&Claw::. Look for a small gift box near the front door of the store. Oh, and there’s a men’s skin included in the box. Also free is this jewelry set from Beloved, which includes a pretty necklace and earrings. I know you can’t see my earrings (sorry!), but they look like a dangly version of the necklace. And they’re free… I mentioned that, right? ;-)

Most of the decor items you see here are by Lark, and are also available at Collabor88. Except for the music box, which is by *MishMish*:-)

Waiting for You…

Waiting for You

Wherever you go, whatever you do
I will be right here waiting for you.
Whatever it takes or how my heart breaks
I will be right here waiting for you.

~Richard Marx, Right Here Waiting For You © Warner/Chappell Music, Inc.

I’m an old-fashioned girl. And there’s nothing like a little anticipation to make that special moment a bit more… special. 🙂

When I saw this pose from brand-new pose store Positure Poses, I knew I wanted to find something sexy and unusual to show it off. So I was thrilled when Fairy Freng sent me her new gift – I love the sensual, wrapped skirt and the lovely, gold detailing. This gift is free to everyone – no group needed – in celebration of her new store opening. There is also a pretty pendant in the box, which I’m not wearing here. Instead, I’m wearing two new gifts from Chop Zuey Couture. The cuffs are a group gift, and the earrings are free to everyone. I’m sorry that I’m not doing the cuffs justice – they really are quite beautiful. I tried turning them around to show the stunning detail, but they just didn’t look right that way. You’ll have to head over to Chop Zuey and see for yourself!

Sigh… the waiting really is the hardest part!

My New Nerd Haven

Of all the posts I’ve done here, this one is probably the most like me in RL. The truth is, I’m something of a nerd. So when I heard about the Geeks ‘n’ Nerds fair, you can bet that I rushed over and spent more than a few L’s – and this isn’t even everything! 😀

Blogging soon!

These great skinny jeans are a new gift from *COCO* Designs, and my sweater is a gift from Prim & Pixel (full credits for what I’m wearing are at the bottom of this post). The poster behind me is a Geeks ‘n’ Nerds gacha prize from Sari-Sari. Since nerds love to read, I’ve surrounded myself with tons of books. And I love my little “Potion Master” doll, which I got from the *~HopScotch*~* gacha at Geeks ‘n’ Nerds. Oh, the tray of goodies was the day 1 advent gift from Sway’s; you can no longer get it for free, but it is available for sale for 75L. If you aren’t doing this fun advent at Sway’s, you really should be! Uh oh, I think my dogs are about to devour my snack… bad dogs!

This pretty skin is from a new-to-me store called {AIMI}. It is the current group gift (free to join), and will run you 1 whole Linden. It only comes in the tone and eyebrows as shown, but hey, 1L! My nails are a Slink HUD from *~*HopScotch*~*, which you can find at Geeks ‘n’ Nerds for 50L. Eight nerdy patterns are included. 😉

Blogging soon!

I finally decorated my office space, and I’ll admit that it’s now my favorite space in the house. My desk (including clutter!) and the Eiffel Tower Marquee are both for sale at Collabor88, but since the current round is almost over, you’d better hurry!

Another view of my new office. 🙂 The shelf and stuffs, as well as the Industrial Chandelier, are available at Collabor88. The surge protector under the desk is from Second Spaces at Geeks ‘n’ Nerds. There are two other versions that will make your virtual space look like a fire hazard with lots of wires sticking out (just like my RL office), but I thought they were a little excessive for the one lamp I have plugged in here. I’m sure I’ll find a place for them somewhere else, though! The Mayfair Trunk is a past VIP group gift from {what next}, and you can still find it in the VIP gift room.

NOTE: The Geeks ‘n’ Nerds event closes on December 8th, and new round of Collabor88 will be starting the same day. Hurry on over if you want any of the great stuffs at either of these events! Please also note that slurls to both an event and the store’s main location are provided in the credits; however, if you want an event item, you need to go there to get it while the event is in progress.

My graphics card was coughing and sputtering by the time I took this photo (Firestorm beta – yikes!), so I apologize that it is a bit pixelated. But I can vouch that this Veronica Dress is really quite pretty, and I think you can still see the delicate detailing, despite the too-big pixels.

This Diana Turtleneck Dress is my favorite of the bunch, and I’ve been wearing it all over SL today. The texturing is quite good, and I love that you can dress it down with boots, or dress it up with a fancy pair of your favorite heels! I’ve paired it with  the brand-new Harvest boots from *~*HopScotch*~*, which you can find on sale for 95L at the current round of My Attic. Eight different colors are available. One reason I’m sweating it with Firestorm Beta is because I want to see items that are materials enabled; you can see here what they look like with the graphics cranked up to 11. 😉

A quick note about these Royalty Tights by ~Cannibelle~. You get six different colors in this pack, and you can wear them with or without your Slink feet; appliers are included, as well as tattoo/sock layers for each. I thought that was a pretty good deal for 95L! If you’d like to try out a pair of ~Cannibelle~ tights, check out Love Trill’s post here, and pick up a free pair of November Rain tights at the current round of Acid Lily.

Finally, this cool, polka dot rug can be found at the Potpourri Designs cart at The Black Event. I’ll have more from them in a later post, as well as a couple of decor items available at the .:pure:. cart not shown here. And last but not least, the French plates on the wall behind me and the I Love You canvas are both dollarbies from floorplan. There are quite a few other decor items set out at floorplan. for either 0L or 1L, so be sure you check them out… and don’t miss all the books on the counter!
