Between the pages of a book…

Between the pages of a book...

They say it’s springtime… But when I look out my window, spring is nowhere to be found. So I created it myself! Kind of…

I’ve been wanting to use this pose for quite some time. It’s from Bauhaus Movement and I just love how it tells a story all on its own. I know it was out at the previous round of Shiny Shabby, but I couldn’t resist using it. And when I saw this beautiful recycled bed from Kalopsia, my picture idea was born. The bed comes in three different colors for the sheets and I just love the open drawer. Such a fun little detail.

Have fun shopping!

Think of it as an adventure…

Think of it as an adventure...

Hi all!

Many, many things going on atm! And no, I’m not talking about SecondLife events, even though I wish I was… I’m missing out on all the good stuff online, or so it seems. Every time I think my RL is getting peaceful, something happens… So frustrating! I feel like I keep repeating myself… Sorry about that.

But! I’m here now and I have things to share! Like the hairs we’re wearing. Both are new hairstyles from Entwined and both are now in my favorite hairs folder (Yes, I have such a folder). I’m a big fan of long flowey hair and both of these are perfect and completely my style! Danielle, the hairstyle I’m wearing, can be found at Shiny Shabby. Alyssa, the hair on the cute blond next to me, can be found at The Fantasy Collective.

A new round of TLC has opened up a little while ago. Kalopsia has released this ‘Dolce Vita Scooter’ there. It’s very cute and comes with the bags attached to it, which I think is super fun! You can change the colour of the scooter as well and it has integrated poses, which we didn’t use but are great for photography!
Also, I really wanted to show you these poses from Sari-Sari. The ‘Bon Voyage’ set is out at TLC as well and comes with many poseprops such as the one Liv is sitting on. My pose is one of Sari-Sari’s spring pose set and can be found at Kustom9. I thought these matched together pretty well! Both sets are definitely worth checking out, as they are great to make fun pics with. In this case I just had to show what a bad navigator my good friend Liv here is.

Most of our outfits can be found at Shiny Shabby’s new round! Have fun spending those lindens everyone!

The world is our playground…

The world is our playground...

Today I was inspired by this awesome set from Epia, Playground Fun. It’s available at The Arcade and is so much fun! There are 8 commons and 2 rares to be won, all of them very detailed and such a nice addition to any SL garden or of course, a playground. All the items come with poses or animations, which make them all the more fun.

I’m wearing Entwined’s new up-do, which is super cute and out at TLC’s current round. The jacket is from M.Birdiestory and can be found at The Chapter Four. I paired it with this skirt from Cameo 6ixx and put on shoes from Candydoll, both out at Kustom9. I know, I’m speeding through my credits! Had way too much coffee today…

Special thanks to my dear friend Liv, who was kind enough to change into a mini-me today! ♥

A little bit wild and free

A little bit wild and free...

I’ve got a bit of a country style going on today. It was mostly inspired by items from ‘The Hive’ which are out at TLC for this round. When I was a kid, I had a horse in RL and whenever I see horse or country inspired items in SL I just buy it without thinking. Makes me remember all the rides on the open fields… And feeling a little wild and free! Anyway… Back to what I was saying. The Hive created this country inspired set complete with a saddle rack, horse through and a wagon wheel. There’s more items, so go see for yourself. I love it! It’s a new to me store, but I’ll be paying attention to future items from them for sure! Also, the guitar behind me and my pug is from Seven Emporium and is out at C88. The lamps hanging on the barn are from Revival and can be found at Shiny Shabby. The trees are from Little Branch and are a must have for the landscapers among us.

On to my outfit! The hair I’m wearing is from Entwined and can be found at Shiny Shabby. I love this hairstyle. It’s fun and relaxed. And it was a perfect match, if you ask me, with this hat from LaGyo. I paired it with JD’s new boots called ‘Neva’, also out at Shiny Shabby. They come with socks, but I choose not to wear them this time. And by adding Emery’s new jeans, I completed my country outfit!

Kissed by a rose…

Kissed by a rose...

I guess it’s pretty obvious I was inspired by roses today… With Valentine’s Day coming up, I felt like my blog could use some romantic elements. And let’s be honest… Nothing beats a beautiful bouquet of red roses! Okay, chocolates are very nice too.

But the main reason for this post is to show of Belleza’s new Celeste skin, which is out now at Uber. I already used her for my previous blogpost, but I felt she should have a close up as well. Celeste comes in Pale, Medium and Sunkissed tones and there are 10 different make-ups to be had. The skins all fit the Celestial theme of this month’s round, really well. Be sure to check out Celeste. She’s very beautiful!

BellezaCelesteCOLLAGEUber

(After finishing this collage, I realized I used the wrong brow color in one of the close ups! Oops!)

Also, a new round of Enchantment has begun on the 1st. The theme is ‘Beauty and the Beast’. Some people might disagree with me, but I really like how Enchantment makes you visit every designer’s store. I noticed that I bought from some of the designers before, but that I had never actually been to their store. This pretty necklace is from May’s Soul and is one of the prizes you can get with a full stampcard. For more information about this event, check out the website here.

Let’s watch the last snow fall…

Let's watch the last snow together...

When Christmas is over and the new year has begun, winter must turn into spring if you ask me. So when I woke up this weekend and I found (a lot of) fresh snow in my garden, I was not too happy. It’s pretty and everything, but I’m so done with feeling cold all the time! That’s why I thought it would be the perfect time to take my last winter picture… And watch the last snow fall.

Uber opened its doors yesterday. They changed the opening date from the last of the month to the 25th of each month. The theme for this round is ‘Celestial’ and there are a lot of amazing items out there. One of them is this pretty hair from Truth. I love this little starry clip, which is an add-on for the ‘Esther’ hair.

The Seasons Story is coming to an end. Only a few days left to get your items. One of the things you can find there is this amazing and cute ‘Blanket Fort’ gacha set from Sari-Sari. When I saw the add on Flickr, I knew I wanted to have it. But I only just got around to buying it this week. And I’m so happy I did! Definitely worth your lindens!
I added a few cute gacha items from HAIKEI, placed these amazing lamps from Schadenfreude in the tent and put a cat on the sofa behind us. I thought this was a perfect farewell winter moment. Now let’s hope it will stop snowing already!

There’s nothing better than a great friend…

There's nothing better than a great friend...

…unless it’s a great friend with wine! ♥

So many new events opened up in January! I’m still enjoying the last days of my vacation, so I had some time left for some shopping.
I’m completely in love with this bed by Trompe Loeil. It’s so romantic and the bed with the lights is so beautiful. It comes in a lit and an unlit version and it has multiple drape versions too. You can find this bed at Fameshed, which opened up on the first of this month. The beautiful Vanity Table and Stool is by [PM]PixelMode and I thought it would match perfectly with the scene I had in mind. You can find both at Uber along with these beautiful wine bottles and glasses set by Kunst. Us ladies know what to do with a good bottle of wine (or two)… Also, the super cute shelf behind me is by ATTIC and can be found at OneWord.

Liv (the blond) is wearing the new Maitreya body, ‘Lara’. She also bought a lingerie applier from Zaara especially for the Maitreya body. I’m wearing the Belleza Venus body with the new set from Eudora which can be found at Uber. It’s a gorgeous corset which comes with a skirt and a top. The details on them are, like always, so beautiful.
We’re both wearing a new hair release from Truth. It’s actually the same hair, Harmony, but it comes in a bun and a ponytail version. You can find that release at Truth’s mainstore.

Happy shopping!

Happy New Year!

♥ Happy New Year! ♥

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas! Mine was absolutely great. I ate too much, I overdid it on the drinking and like always… I got tons of useless gifts! But they came from the loving hearts of my dear family and friends.

Because I’m still enjoying my holiday, my post is gonna be short today. OneWord will open its new round on the 1st of January! New round, new word! And this round’s word is ‘Dream’. The pose I’m using today is from !Bang Poses and is called ‘As if a dream’. The pose will be available at OneWord. I’m gonna show you more of the lovely new items which will be out at OneWord soon!
Also, I wanna mention these champagne glasses and bottles from Kunst. My sweet friend Ilaya, kindly asked her hubby Kunst if I could have some champagne. So to both Ilaya and Kunst, thank you so much for your kindness! They’re beautiful!!

This year has really flown by. I still can’t believe we’re already on 2015’s doorstep. It has been a crazy year, both in SL and RL. And in both lives, 2015 will bring a lot of new things! New places to live, new career opportunities and hopefully a lot of new friends. I am really looking forward to what the new year will bring! I wish every single one of you an amazing New Year’s Eve! And of course lots of love, happiness, friendship and health for 2015!! Let’s make it an incredible year!

So when I said I really love this round of Fameshed, I really really meant it. I think I bought all the decor items that you can find there. Including this amazing antique kitchen set by Trompe Loeil. I’ve always been a big fan of her work, ever since I’ve been renting plots and sims. Everything is so detailed and pretty. And I just love the cute curtain on the kitchen sink! Trompe Loeil’s set was easy to combine with the new skybox from HAIKEI. The tiles looked perfect with the antique kitchen if you ask me. The skybox is available at Kustom9.

We’re both wearing ND Nardcotix’s new shoes. They are absolutely stunning. I’m hard to please when it comes to shoes, but so far I’ve loved every pair from that store! They are available at TLC, come in a wide variety of colors and they are compatible with the Venus body from Belleza, TMP and Slink. I say try them!
Also, I’m wearing earrings from LaGyo’s ‘Modern Alchemist Collection’, Mave Drop in silver. You can find that complete collection at C88. It’s definitely worth checking out!

I have not much more to say. Only that the list of credits is quite long, so please forgive me if I forgot something. Have fun shopping!!

Warm sweaters and hot cocoa…

Warm sweaters and hot cocoa...

Hi everyone.

Back with more autumn goodies. It’s getting colder and colder, which means it’s almost time for winter wonderland pictures. But before it’s that time… Let’s enjoy this colorful season with these amazing new knits from Zenith! I’m totally in love with both. The sweater Liv is wearing can be found at Fameshed. And the knit dress I slipped on, is available at the new Kustom9 round which opened 2 days ago.

Also, be sure to check out all the lovely decor items we’re using here. I love them all! Especially the hot cocoa tray. ♥
