My RL daughter has been pestering me for months now to make a child avie. I finally gave in, and… here she is. May I introduce you to Serena’s little sister, Siobahn Snowfield. I tried to make her look like a kid, and not like a short adult. Hopefully I succeeded. My RL daughter seems to think so. 🙂

Vintage Space

Vintage Space

I love most things vintage. Maybe because in RL years, I could be considered “vintage.” This month’s round of The Challenge really reminded me of some of my favorite childhood things: watching black and white TV shows (and you actually had to GET UP to change the channel), the “British Invasion,” and spending all my quarters playing Tempest on those huge video game machines at the pizza parlor. Ah, good times.

A note about this amazing Fremantle TV by %Percent: be sure to read the enclosed notecard. Twenty different movies and shows are available for streaming (I’m watching Atomic Rulers of the World here), but your settings might need to be adjusted a bit. I discovered that on my fairly new Win8 PC, I had to install a different version of Adobe Flash Player in order to get the video to stream. It wasn’t difficult to get everything working though, and once I did, I got to take another trip down Memory Lane via The Lucy Show. All the shows are PG and include sound.

Ok, so now that I’ve completely dated myself… I think I’ll go shoo that space alien away from my laptop and watch some more classic TV. My pizza’s getting cold.

P.S. I’ve also thrown in a couple of Fifty Linden Friday (FLF) items (which, as of this posting, were still 50L), as well as some group gifts. Enjoy. 🙂

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!

Chair – {what next} Cubby Armchair (200L for set of 2)

Poster – Sari-Sari OMG!!! Posters! Nerds (50L Gacha @ Geeks ‘n’ Nerds)

Giraffe – StoraxTree Native Giraffe Whimsy Brown Statue

Lamp – {what next} Charlotte Lamp

Treats – Sway’s Tray with Cocoa and Cookies (past advent, now 75L)

Blogging soon!

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!

Wall Hanging – Alouette Ctrl Alt Delete Key Rack (129L @ Geeks ‘n’ Nerds)

Lamp – floorplan. Eiffel Tower Marquee (188L @ Collabor88)

Easel – StoraxTree Artistic Endeavors Easel A

Desk – Standby Inc. Huckleberry Desk (288L @ Collabor88)

Blogging soon!

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.

Going to the Dogs

So last week I celebrated my RL birthday. It was a “milestone,” but we won’t discuss which one. 😉 Anyway, I decided to buy myself a present: this cute Yorkshire Terrier puppy. I’ve named her Fiona, and I’m sure you’ll be seeing more of her here. Looks like she and Nessie are getting to know each other!

Blogging soon!

Moving right along… I’m relaxing this evening in a comfy combo made up of gifts from several different designers. My mesh skinny jeans are the newest group gift from WERTINA (free to join). There are several other group gifts on the wall, so be sure to pick them all up. My cozy KISS sweater is a gift from Hysteria Creations, and my Juana shoes are a group gift from Baby Monkey. They come with a HUD so you can change the colors, and there is also a similar gift for the guys.

Blogging soon!

Like this skin? Me too! It’s a group gift from new-to-me skin store Story Leaf (free to join). There is also a gift skin for the men. My Ribbon Necklace is a free gift from KOSH on the Marketplace, and it comes with a texture-changing HUD so you can choose your metal. Finally, my hair is the latest subscribo gift from ChiChickie! If you didn’t receive yours, head over to the store and pick up the red gift box by the subscribo. You’ll also receive the gift from last month. 😀
