The other woman

I’m back and I promise this will be it for today.  I wanted to get in a post for Tres Chic that began a few days ago.  Some great fashion this round.  The trench coat is mesh body compatible and is available in 5 colors. The skin worn is Kitty by YS&YS and is a applier for the Catwa mesh head. It is part of April’s Powder Pack, which you can still buy it and others off marketplace.  Close ups of skins shown are below.

The hair worn is by Tukinowaguma and it’s available in five color palettes or a fatpack for all colors. The dress on the other woman.. hence my title is by Kenny Rolands, also mesh body compatible and available in 5 colors. The skin worn is by Colivati Beauty called Hailey and available in 6 color tones. I’m wearing the tan tone.  The short hair style is by Pr!tty and available in a few color choices. All the fashion is available at Tres Chic unless otherwise mentioned.

The decor is by three separate creators.  The larger part of the decor is by 22769, which is the Baroque terrace and topiary sphere trees.  It’s a fantastic piece and available at We ❤ Role-Play.  The sleeping cupid 3-tier fountain with the curved seat is by [Tia] and at this round of Shiny Shabby that just opened.  The trees in the background are red elders in 4 seasons by Little Branch and are available at this round of Draftsman.

That’s it for now…have a lovely weekend!

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!

Girls night in

This is my first attempt at blending two photos together in Photoshop, so hopefully it’s not too bad. While it takes a little work there are some advantages to doing this. One is when you have several things to blog and you are wanting to show more items in a blog post.

I’m showcasing items from the current round of Cosmopolitan that ends on March 26th, so you still have plenty of time to get there and catch some great bargains. I’m also featuring a couple items from On9, another great event that is ongoing until the 28th of March.  The hair worn on the avatar on the floor is by Wasabi Pills, that can be found at Ultra and that event runs until April 15th.

Hope you have a great week ahead!

This year has been a bit busier than what I remember it being previous years. I know in large it’s due to taking on more blogging commitments and I recognize that simply from the fact that I have yet to open a quarter of my arcade items that were purchased and not given to me as a blogger package.  I really have no problem with it. If I didn’t enjoy this I simply wouldn’t do it.

I also have not had time to unpack some of the advent or hunt gifts I find as I am always on the lookout for home and garden decor.  I find hunts are sometimes one of the best sources for me finding more one of a kind items or the unusual or even home decor stores I wasn’t aware of.


So last night I decorated a whole cottage with a bunch of Christmas decor mostly from decor items received from hunts, advent and group gifts and maybe a few other pieces bought or given through a blogger pack.  It gave me a feeling of nostalgia and a small dose of guilt of not doing it sooner.

Today I’m showcasing a new hair style by Tukinowaguma that’s available at Tres Chic. It’s a sweet and stylish updo that’s perfect for those holiday parties as is the Antonina dress by Fame Femme, that has a fun bow going down the open back that adds a little sexiness to the dress.  Both of these items can be found in different colors at the event.

The decor being featured is by [CIRCA], which are items in their Holiday Advent Tree. There is a group that you need to join, it’s the [CIRCA] Living – Christmas Advents (in-world) and it’s free to new members.  Each day items have been added to the squares on the wall tree near the inside entrance. Items do cost from $1 – $75 lindens and some even at $0 lindens.  Unfortunately, I didn’t get these items until a couple of days ago, so it’s a bit of a short notice and hopefully she will leave them out a bit longer as the group will be closing the Eve of Dec. 24th.  The wall strip art in red plaid is  available currently at the Midwinter Fair.

Edited: A note on the advent for [CIRCA].  The creator will be opening the advent for days 8-24 on December 24th, so you will still have time to grab anything you like from those days.

Have a fabulous Wednesday Thursday!

The Mexicana 048

I really loved this table and chair set that [noctis] created for The Fantasy Collective, because it reminds me of the furniture from some of my border trips to Mexico.  I call them border trips as they were only visits that didn’t venture beyond a couple of cities from the border line.  My very first trip was while visiting San Diego, California and crossing over the bridge to Mexico through Tijuana.  I will never forget that trip as it was heart wrenching to see little children no more than 5 years of age panhandling for money.  Another border trip was through Hidalgo, Texas when I was actually in Fort Worth and our party made the jaunt to McAllen and then on to Mexico.

It’s a pity that now those trips across the border are not considered the most safe, but who knows what the future brings.

Impertinence 028

I hope everyone is enjoying their summer so far.  It’s been raining lots here in my part of the world.  While these summer thunderstorms don’t last very long they seem to come in with a vengeance at times.  They make their presence known with their thundering rumblings and strikes of lighting.

It makes for a lazy afternoon and if you have to stay indoors then why not go for a little decadence.  The Perfect 10 event is about to start in a few days and you can find this bench from Impertinences to help you if you’re so inclined to a little self-indulgence.   You can find the bench in a brown or black wood that come with a texture change hud to change the leather of the seat that also has ten poses to choose from.

If you haven’t already joined the 21Shoe group then you’re missing out on some great group gifts.  I’m wearing the latest gift that was provided by Kelpsydra, which are these stockings that come in three colors and are made to fit the Maitreya and TMP mesh bodies and also come with omega appliers and system layer.  With this pose you really can’t see much of the violet boudoir corset I’m wearing, though it was only 50 lindens and if you hurry you can still find it today.

I think one of my sissy’s cats escaped again and look she’s taught it some skills.  I think she’s checking out the 21Shoe website to take a peek at all the shoes in the next round that starts on June 21st.  In any case I am showing the Sesa Denim heels from ChicChica that are made to fit the Slink and Maitreya high feet.  I love pointy shoes, so these are just excellent for me.

I am also showing a new decor item by Aphrodite Shops.  The mesh animated fountain has real water sound and movement and also comes with animated butterflies flying around.  This one is in the beige marble, though you can also find this in white.

Pose – Hand Kiss by Del May

We’re not broken ~ just adrift.

Broken 008
When I was trying out the animations on this broken chair and came to this one pose the scene immediately developed for me.   I figured a couple of trees and driftwood for the background would be simple enough as the focus would be the chair.  I fixed the picture and then gave some thought to a title and the obvious choice would be broken and then as I saw the driftwood just floating there adrift the title came to me.  I’m not broken, I’m just adrift right now.

The statement resounded in me and I thought that’s how I feel these days.  A little like just going through the motions and a bit scattered and not completely focused.  Not broken.. just adrift at the moment.  No. I’m not caught up in fantasy.  Far from it.  Reality smacks me too quickly these days to get myself too caught up in any type of fantasy.  It’s almost that feeling of being at a fork in the road in your life.  Maybe feeling a little stuck and on hold and yet having that feeling like I’m on the verge or cusp of or needing to make a turn.   Life hasn’t been boring lately that’s for sure.

Speaking of being a bit scattered.  I was leaving the house and was in my car when I suddenly realized that I had to have returned the rental vehicle two hours earlier.  Yikes.  I quickly called to have them extend the vehicle for another week as I’m leaving out of town tomorrow and won’t be back until the end of the week and I just don’t have time to exchange it.  It had completely slipped my mind and so with that said I have decided not to take a laptop with me while I’m away.

I think that I need to disconnect for a while.  It’s very rare that I will leave town and activate that automatic “I’m out of the office” message, but I think for once I am going to use it without hesitation.

This will be my last post until next week, so I wish everyone a fabulous week!
