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! ♥

Once Upon a Different Life...

I love poses with props. Not just because it makes it easy to come up with a picture story, but also because they are so much fun! The pose I’m using here is from Exposeur and comes with a fairy tale tower! There are 5 singles poses (mirrored poses included as well) and 3 couples poses. So for everyone who wants to create their own fairy tale, make sure you buy this! It’s available at this round of OneWord. I added a few more items from there, like this beautiful dress from Cila and more decor items by Ravenghost, Moon Amore and also from Windsong. I already did a post with items from this round of OneWord, but I wanted to mention the event again because it’s closing in a few days. So go check it out before it’s too late!

Happy shopping!

So I’m finally done with moving. I had to skip a full week in SL to unpack and settle in. Which would normally be ok, but with all the events opening up in the first week of March I’m already way behind. But I’m gonna do my best to get as many posts out as possible in the upcoming weeks.

First of, I wanna start with this gacha set from Sari-Sari. Being a big fan of their store, it’s always nice to see what new things they come up with. This Cafe Happy gacha is out at The Arcade and is as always super fun and very detailed. Seriously, the bread looks eatable! And don’t even get me started about the coffee. There are 21 items to win and 3 Rares, being the Cafe, the Chalkboard ladder and the Bread Cart. This is a super fun set to complete and put on your sim! I made a little collage of the separate items so it’s easier to see how they look. I also added the vendor add at the bottom. Go see for yourself how much fun this set is!

Here to show you this new gacha set from HAIKEI which is available at this round of Kustom9! I’ve added the vendor add at the bottom of this post so you can all see how cute it is. There are 8 commons to win and one rare, being the Winter cabin. Like always, the texturing is amazing which makes it so easy to use in pictures and to decorate it. And it will fit on every winter sim.

I am so loving this jacket from Gawk! It’s available at Winter Trend and comes in a lot of different colors. Definitely worth demo-ing! The pants I’m wearing are from Emery and to be honest, I’m having a hard time taking them off. That’s how much I love them. We’ve paired our outfits with the snowboots from FLite, which are still available at The Arcade.

Special thanks to Xander for helping me out with this blogpost! ♥

Hi!

Back to show you some more Arcade goodies! I’m always in love with the beautiful sets from 8f8. This month’s round of The Arcade is no exception. In fact, it’s usually the first machine I play. And I won one of the rares! This beautiful Winter Cottage. It’s so detailed and perfect for your winter sims! I’m sure you’ve been to the Arcade already, but if you didn’t go yet make sure you check out this machine!

Liv and I have been shopping at C88 today. And this round is filled with winter must-haves. Liv is wearing Rowne’s new hair, which is very beautiful. The scarf comes with it and I just love how the hair is tucked underneath it. Also, she’s wearing The Secret Store’s new coat, which comes in a lot of perfect winter colors!
I immediately fell in love with the Pixicat Wintry Cape. I’m wearing it without the hood and the fur collar. It’s even more perfect with them. The top I’m wearing underneath is tintable and you can also wear the cape without it. My hair is from Lamb and is just adorable. The winter hat is color changeable with a HUD. I’ve paired it with the earmuffs and scarf from LaGyo’s Cozy set which is currently at C88 as well. I’m wearing the wool version, but they also come in fur and in multiple colors.

Last but certainly not least… This pose is a new one from !Bang Poses. It will be available at FROST which will open up on the 13th. There will be two new poses out at the event. This is one of them. Both are girl/girl poses and they are adorable!! Both poses can be used in so many different ways. Which is perfect for a pic crazy blogger like me.

Hope you like and happy shopping!

Jingle Bell Time…

Jingle Bell Time...

Hi all.

So everyone in my family celebrates their birthday in November and December. Which means a busy time for me. And on top of all that, there’s the Christmas preparations. Where will we celebrate the holidays, the planning, the shopping and gift wrapping. So today’s picture is totally inspired by Christmas!

I wanna start with this cute headband from LaGyo, I’m wearing. It comes with a color change HUD. I think it’s really cute. There are two new sets out by LaGyo at the new ‘Snow Day’ round of C88. One is a cozy set and the other is a chic set, in which you can find this headband. Totally worth buying! Also, the necklace I’m wearing is from another LaGyo set which is out at Fameshed.

So, as you can see I’ve been to the Arcade. This round is amazing. I’m in love with all the decor sets. Especially Dust Bunny’s set. And look at this cute dog and cat from ISPACHI! Just adorable. The house I’ve used is one of Dust Bunny’s rares. I’m still looking for the Christmas tree rare though. That’s why I used *AF*’s Christmas tree, which can be found at We ❤ RP along with some other items.
Also, this pose from oOo Studio is so cute! I couldn't resist buying it! You can find it at TMD!

Hi all!

As promised… My decor post for today. I’m here to show you this lovely Outdoor Open House from HAIKEI which can be found at the new Kustom9 round. It is, just like the name of the house says, an outdoor home. I love the big windows and the way the doors slide open at the front. As soon as I saw it I knew I wanted to do an autumn post. Like I said before, I love autumn. I’m not much of an outdoorsy person, but when it comes to this season I just wanna sit outside all the time. Weird right? Well… This home is perfect for it! Slide open your doors and enjoy!

Cheeky Pea has released two beautiful sets this month. One at Fameshed and the other at TMD. I love them both so much. Like always, the texturing and the design is just amazing. Be sure to check them out!
The Arcade is still running until the end of September. So all these amazing Vespertine items I’ve used for this post can still be found there. They’re really beautiful and fit perfectly with the autumn feel I wanted to create. And let’s not forget all the other gorgeous stuff you can grab while you’re there!

Venus, thy eternal sway…

Venus, thy eternal sway…
All the race of men obey…

Venus, thy eternal sway...

Everyone…

Meet Venus. The gorgeous new mesh body from Belleza. And she is so beautiful!
When I logged on yesterday and saw my package waiting for me, I got all excited. I cleared my schedule, told everyone I was talking to that I would be busy and then started unpacking my gift! Ready to be busy for hours like with all the other mesh bodies I’ve tried. But in no time I had it all figured out. Not only is this body just drop dead gorgeous… The HUD that comes with it, is just so easy to use! So within 5 minutes I was dressed and ready to go! Of course I stayed in and played with the body a little bit more. I mean… Who wouldn’t…

The body comes in two shapes. One complete shape including the hands and feet from Belleza. And one shape made to fit your Slink body parts! Which is pretty awesome, because we don’t have to say goodbye to all the Slink items and add-ons we already own;-). But the hands and feet that come with the Venus body are simply amazing. The HUD controls your hand gestures and there are 16 (!!!) hands to choose from. The feet are also controlled by the HUD and come in flat, middle and high. Plus, there’s also one to fit your JD shoes.

The HUD makes it super easy to adjust your skin tone. Of course, all the Belleza skin tones are included. Just wear your skin, click your tone and it’s done. But it also has free slots for other future skin appliers, along with 16 skin presets that are already in it. It also has a push up function for your breasts! Ah, the breasts… I could talk about them all day.
I’ve added a partial nude picture at the bottom of this post, so you can get an idea of how the body looks.

I’ve tried… But I can’t find one single flaw. Venus is stunning, gorgeous and really lives up to her name. Be sure to keep an eye out for this release!! Join the Belleza group inworld or like Belleza’s Facebook page here to stay updated!

Looking too closely...

Hi everyone!!

The Arcade opened today! Did you make a wishlist yet? I began making a list… But then I stopped. There’s no point in making one when you want almost everything, is there? *sighs*

Meet Emily. She’s the beautiful skin from Belleza which can be found at The Arcade. There are 15 skins to collect, including 3 Rares, in multiple skintones. Click to view all the skin options from Belleza. I’m wearing Number 1, which is a Rare and absolutely perfect for me. Look at my freckles! And OMG, I’m loving the lips. I didn’t have to edit my appearance at all. It’s perfect just the way it is!

Because it’s not been easy to get into The Arcade, I decided to get my shop on at Fameshed and Uber today. I picked up this amazing chain ear cuff from Haste at Fameshed. It comes in multiple metal options. Also, look at this gorgeous hair from Exile. It can be found at the new round of Uber, which opened yesterday.

Have fun shopping!

I really wanted to do something with the gorgeous items from Anc that can be found at The Arcade this month. And I wanted to do something different with my picture. And Aki’s items are always sooo beautiful and dreamy! The set is called Eden and it’s the perfect name for it!

Also… A new round of We ❤ RP opened! The dress we are wearing is from -Pixicat- and it is stunning!! There are 4 different metals to choose from and it comes with a HUD to change the color of the skirt. Or you can detach the skirt and just wear the corset!

Go check it out!
