Far from home, but closer than ever

It’s a lovely Tuesday morning, despite it being 81°F outdoors and if you add the humidity on top of that it’s pretty uncomfortable for someone who isn’t used to the heat. I’m used to it. Preferably indoors with air condition and a refreshing drink. That reminds me that I have a mango to slice into later on.

Today I’m showing fashion from two events that opened up in the last days, On9 and The Liaison Collaborative.  Both great events that have a mixture of fashion, decor and poses and lots more, so make sure to go check them out.

Have a fabulous Tuesday!

Baby I got your number, oh, and I know that you got mine…

While I am usually drawn more to neutral warm colors for my own personal likes when I am decorating my own homes — I do like white and light colors. I think part of the reason that I’m drawn to warmer colors is that I grew up in a large family and light colors was never an option. My paternal grandmother on occasion had light color furniture, but she lived on the west coast and visits there were for short weeks at a time.  My maternal grandmother had two living rooms, a formal and non formal one, but both were warm colors.

It’s one of the reasons to love about Second Life decorating. You can experiment as much as you like with decorating — trying something that may not be your usual style or colors and replace it so quickly if it’s not to your liking.  If you’re like me and often stick to warm colors how about shifting to something new.

Today, I’m showing a new release by a store that I just started blogging for known as (luc) boutique, that specializes in jewelry and home decor.  I hope to be showing you some more great things in the future.

I’m featuring a few pieces from their gacha at The Season’s Story.  There are 12 pieces total, of which I am using 9 listed below under credits. The pouf is by Soy, and it’s at this round of The Liaison Collaborative. You can also find the updo hairstyle that I’m wearing by D!va and the fur jacket by Mimikri at the same event.

The lingerie Mimiry in black is by Mushilu for Oh My Gacha.  You can view the gacha key here.

Happy Saturday!

A cold winter night

021ps

I’m cold this afternoon with the temperatures being only in the 60s, which is probably warmth and sunshine weather for many of you who live in colder climate places. I know. I get it. I’m still cold.  I’m not complaining though. I like this weather, but my body isn’t agreeing with me just yet and tells me different.

I’ve got another cold winter picture here featuring the outdoors to my post yesterday.  The sunrise beachhouse by ChiC buildings is orginal mesh at 17.2 x 15.7 meters in size and a land impact of 86. It’s available at the Draftsman Event along with the path and patio stone walkway that are sold separately.  The outside landscape is all by Little Branch, with the exception of the Christmas tree, which is a group gift the rest can be cound at this round of FaMESHed.  The park bench is a recently released new item by [Schultz Bros.] and can be found at the main store. The blackboard is another piece of the items shown in yesterday’s post by Onedecor also at Draftsman.

Have a fabulous day!

Just getting a head start on the weekend

Happy Friday!

Today I am doing a bit of everything from the fashion I’m wearing to the decor I’ve put together.  It’s a long post and I apologize beforehand for not taking more pictures to break it up some. I’m showing a new long hairstyle by eXxEsS called Jaci available on market place and main store.  In case you’re not familiar with her sets; A  has 56 single-tones and B has 56 multi-tones.  The sweater is one of 8 colors available at the Tannenbaum Holiday Market.

The decor is from the Draftsman and Arcade events.  The chair, bench and table are by Shutter Field in collaboration with Decor Junction out now at Draftsman. There are two other tones available in wood and white apart from the rustic being shown. Land impact ranges from 1 to 4 and both the bench and chair have a handful of sit and activity animations. I think 8 or more is considered a handful don’t you think?

The hanging lights and lighted candle on the table are by Hive and are some of the commons in the Home-for-the-Holidays gacha at the Arcade. The adorable husky tangled in lights is by JIAN and it’s one of the rares in the set.  Those yummy bagels on that plate on the table are by Mushilu and were from the recent passed Enchantment event.  They got to me late so was not able to show them previously, but they should be now at the main store.

The remaining decor is the wine/beer set by Onedecor at Draftsman.  I believe that you can purchase the pieces individually or in a full set pack. Also, just to note the wine bottles used on the shelves and also table with wine glass were just unlinked from the wine decor set and used for the scene. Go check out the event it’s ongoing until December 17th.

The scene was created using the Sunrise Beach House by ChiC building, also at Draftsman.  I will be featuring it in a separate post as I didn’t have enough time to get all this done to show it together.

Check it all out in credits and have a great Friday!
