Chrismassy !

It’s no secret that I get a bit overly festive between November to December 25th…and this year is no different. Second Life’s creators are feeding my frenzy of excitement with some amazing new releases in the decor department ! Cleo Design is participating in the “Home For Christmas Hunt” and above is the gift you can find . Its traditional and snuggly…with single poses and couples..the oversized chair is perfect for settling down beside the roaring fire in…touch the shadow underneath for some colour change choices too ! You also receive the little side table complete with steaming mugs of cocoa & biscuits..the lammp is soooo pretty, ohhh mustn’t forget the jolly wreath !

SUYS – Spruce Up Your Space…is in full swing and Cleo Design has this utterly to-die-for set out called “A Night In Paris”…I was so thrilled when I opened it all up. Not only is it the perfect colour for my new home but..its just absolutely stunning…the chaise has a faded design, old pictures of Paris on the cushions…I just adore the fat tassels on the arms that dangle down…and and and ohhhh the side table…with two glasses of wine..a single cigarette ([probably a Gauloise no?) burning in it…the lamp is made of rose petals. You also get the framed prints…the floor cushions…the pretty screen and the lilies in a vase…

I kicked my shoes off and had a lounge for a while (the shoes you see on the floor are included in the set btw…cool huh?!) Totally lovely…SO romantic…treat yourself…

One last bit of info…Cleo Design is also in the Royal Living Great outdoors Hunt…and there is a gorgeous Winter Garden up for grabs…its pretty big…so Im showing an interior shot on the lounger (there’s also two chairs), it’s a wintery greenhouse, stuffed with green plants…very pretty ! Btw..check out the two new gatha machines at the store …one is naughty, one is nice…and seriously…get the naughty one ! It made me laugh and laugh ! Thanks Cleom ❤

Stuck at a Motel

I have such a beautiful complete outfit to show you from SF Design…it deserved a great location to show you it…and after a few false starts I think I found it. Do you recognise the motel? Have a little think about it…rummage about in your memory for a really famous Motel. “Ms Chevia” is the outfit…its so retro…and chiq. Various colours but I just adored this dark cherry red…

It comes complete with the fascinator hat, the peep toe heels, belt and bolero…and of course that classy little dress ! Any guesses yet where I am? Biggg clue is I’m holding a suitcase…and trying to leave ….

Last photo clue..you surely must know it now right? Ohhhh cmon…its Bates Motel ! It’s a wonderful spot to explore…apparently there is a drive in movie theatre down the road that shows films hurrah! I snooped in all the rooms and they are very well furnished , faithful to the era of that movie…  Kinda creepy but FUN at the same time…anyyyywayyyy…back on track..Ms Chevia is out…for the whole package its 500L…steal ! Thanks Swaffette ❤

The Knitting Circle Rummage Sale (non mesh)

Wandering around I came across a small market set up.  This is what the LM says and it’s exactly what you get “Discount and retired items from your favorite Knitting Circle stores. Gacha doubles and other random treasures can also be found at this group rummage sale.” Some great bargains to be had.

First up a very handy shrug (Riddle).  Again I chose the safe brown but at 25Lds a colour you can get as many as you like at that bargain price.

Ana is the name of the top and PaperDoll is the name of the shop.  I chose the cream which is pretty but hasn’t photographed as well as either the pool (blue) or the Mauve would have.  Doesn’t matter because it only looks pale in this photo in SL it’s lovely lacy and creamy.  At 25Lds I’m grabbing the lot.

Grixdale Vintage Frock is the name of this item. More top than Frock.  A sweet creamy full skirted top with lovely satin/ribbon edging and prim bows.  This shop is called Aura.

OK summing up this market its stuffed with BARGAINS and as far as I can tell all NON MESH ones at that. Because as I always say not everyone can handle mesh and maybe even doesn’t want to. We all need non mesh clothes for those times when our comps are struggling to cope with SL and this is the place.  Kicking myself for the library fines because I can see at least 3 dresses which are soooo sweet!! and so cheap. In a relatively small area they have everything you need from hair, skin, shoes and clothes and all at great prices.

List of shops here. Atomic, Pink Fuel, Ploom, Riddle, Aura,Paperdoll.

Stunning

Group gift non mesh. Hat included but not the necklace.

Group Gift non mesh. Same dress as above but with the Gatcha crown.

Group gift non mesh. Hat, beads, shoes all free.

Group gift non mesh. So much Tulle.  Ride on the sim.

First shop is called Sugarcoat and from there I got the amazing Gatcha crown for a cheap 40Lds.  Enough bling to make it pretty and not enough to make it nasty.  This is also the shop to go to for the sparkling grasses, coloured grasses, floaty soap bubbles, glittery lights and such prettiness for your land and home and pretty darn reasonably priced and a small selection of floaty dresses.  There is a couple of smaller shops with skin and wings which are just so lovely.

Sugarcoat. How inviting is this shop?

Worlds End Garden.  The shop is  small and perfect.

Worlds Ends Garden.  Nearly everything you see can be bought right there.

The first picture shows Sugarcoat and when someone spends time, money and imagination making their shop and land look that pretty you know you’re in for a treat.

The rest of the pictures (apart from the framing there is no photoshopping involved) is The Worlds End Garden.  BEAUTIFUL!  The shop is small but almost everything on the sim that you see is for sale.  So much easier and nicer to buy from where you see it in place and not have to TP somewhere else and find it.  I’ve not shown everything on this stunning sim but so well worth a visit just to calm the soul and maybe get a few pictures for your invent (as well as the dresses). WOW I’ve just been back to get the LM and found a secret TP to a little bit of heaven in the sky.  VISIT NOW!

Are you Cold?

I guess you might be with the weather cooling down for certain, lucky people in the world. As for me, no, I most certainly am not cold but hey, that’s one of the things I love about Second Life: there’s no weather but for what we make in our own heads! That’s why I can happily show you some of the awesome gear you can pick up from FATEwear right now.

They are some deliciously warm and gorgeous items like in the picture above where you can see me wearing the Roger layered shirt and cardigan combo and it is wicked. I love cardigans so this was always going to make me happy but it just looks so good the texture on it and the undershirt is fantastic and there are a number of cool colours you can get your little hands on. I also am a big fan of the striped pattern on the cardigan and the way it’s opened at the bottom to allow you to see the shirt beneath.

In this picture I’ve put on the brilliant ‘James’ jacket, which is a new take on FATEwear’s popular Dean jacket except this time it’s done is gorgeous denim with a fleece lining. Again, and it’s pretty much par for the course with FATEwear, the texturing is spectacular and the sizing is just perfect (for me), it’s just such a great jacket.

With both these items, I’ve teamed them with different colours of the ‘Harry’ scarf and I’m blown away with how seamlessly they fit with other mesh items, there doesn’t seem to be melting at all, it just sits right where it’s supposed to sit and looks superb while doing so. There is a fantastic range of colours available for this scarf, loads of size options and you ladies can also pick this up if you’d like as there are also female sizings! Thanks Damien!
