I wish I enjoyed gardening, I can only dream of having a beautiful garden in RL but my SL garden can always look lovely thanks to some awesome events going on right now.

The shed, various tools and bench are all at The Epiphany and the planters, table and chair, tomatoes and peas are new for The Gacha Guardians. The wonderfully realistic garden wall is by Ex Machina for We Love Roleplay.

The Little Branch have released a gorgeous cherry blossom tree with wild grass at LTD: The Event and don’t forget you can still get their gorgeous flowers at FaMESHed too!

Check out this cute new hair by Blues called Carmen, it’s brand new for Kustom 9 which opens today. I rarely do hat hair for some reason but this one is just so cute, I love the ribbon at the back, a perfect look for Spring.

My top is by Moon at Collabor88, My Shredded Tank comes in loads of colours, I’m wearing the exclusive Daisy print here, made for Maitreya it fits so well and I had no problems fitting it over my jeans either.

You’ll find the jeans at The Season’s Story, by Paper Arrow, along with the very lovely Daphne pose set by An Lar, as usual this is a set of five poses with mirrors.

No, I’m not ready for Christmas. No, I haven’t decorated. No, I haven’t finished my Christmas shopping. Bah humbug!

Christmas on 34th Street is a wonderful festive event all about the act of giving. All items sold at the event have transfer perms so you can give your SL friends and loved ones some lovely pressies this year. There are also lots of 10L gifts you can get for yourself (you know, one for you, one for me!).

One important thing to note is that the vendor boxes are transfer but once opened the items become copy, so if it’s a gift, don’t open the box!

DRD have a fab set called notgivingaf which pokes a bit of fun at the whole Christmas thing. The chair, table, and happy birthday sign are all part of the set with the deer decoration being their 10L gift. The chair has some awesome poses with props like this smoking pose. The lovely hair bow with mistletoe by Astralia and the pretty necklace by YS&YS are also at the event as well as more great trees by Little Branch, Alaska, which comes in season change cluster and single versions.

Hairology opens tomorrow for its second round, I’m a bit of an SL hair addict so this event is perfect for me, so many new and fabulous styles to choose from! I’m showing you the very lovely Katya by Damselfly here.

Kalopsia have a great new gacha set at The Men’s Dept called Boys Night In. I’m showing just a few of the many pieces available which are the rugs, cans and takeaway cartons. Other items include a rare leather couch, rare gamer chair and many more.

Also, just look at the beautiful new head by Genesis Lab for Collabor88. She’s called Nicole and I think you’ll agree she’s stunning. I’m also wearing one of their skin appliers from Collabor88, Sonya. This head works a treat with system eyes which I love and has the prettiest big lips!

One last thing to tell you about is my outfit which is a new release from !gO! The skirt and tops are sold separately in a variety of colours so you can mix and match and the top comes with a plain and stripy version in each pack.

At The Arcade, Pure Poison have a lovely set of frames which come in décor and pose versions. I’m using the décor version of the hanging frame here.

I’m wearing…

@ Collabor88…
Genesis Lab – Nicole Mesh Head, Sonya appliers

@ Christmas on 34th Street…

191015-Autumn-Magic-W

I thought I’d take a little break from Halloween horror today and bring you a gentler Autumnal scene using some wonderful pieces available right now at various events.

First of all I must mention my new dress from !gO! which will be available at The Fantasy Collective in just a few days. This is a gorgeous ensemble consisting of a bodysuit, skirt and flexi skirt with swishy ribbons. I really love the shape of this dress and it put me in mind of autumn leaves which is what inspired my set today.

Speaking of autumn leaves, The Little Branch are releasing some gorgeous trees for Shiny Shabby, the Orange Maple comes in the bent version shown here or normal and the leaves are so warm and vibrant, perfect for the season.

I’ve added a few little friends to the scene, these Long Eared Jerboas are by Half-Deer, a gacha set at The Epiphany and they are utterly cute! these little animated cuties come in a variety of colours, mine are Forest Deer, Natural and Little Shadow. The thorny vine and acorns are also by Half-Deer and are available at the main store.

The sweet hamsters are also from The Epiphany, cute wearable pets by Genesis Lab. Just look at their little t-shirts, how adorable!

My pose is from Kirin’s new set of six standing poses for Kustom 9, a lovely set of calm and gentle poses which are beautifully done as always.

I am so excited about the new round of The Season’s Story which opens on 10th October. Autumn is my favourite season so I’m really looking forward to seeing what the creators have in store for us.

While we’re waiting I can show you some previews of what to expect, Sari-Sari has created the fabulous Autumn set and I’m showing you all bar one of the pieces here: Bird Barrel, Bird House, Campfire Cooking (with optional fire and smoke!), Extra Logs, Haystack, Picnic Basket and Pumpkin Cart. The only piece I’ve not used because I’m a silly and somehow missed it, is the Tea Stump. This set is a wonderful variety of autumnal decor I’m sure you’ll agree.

Keke has also gone all out for The Season’s Story with the wonderful willow pillow, which is the stump and cushions I’m sitting on, the willow shrub and leaves which you can see scattered around, tea glasses and tealights in tins. All beautifully detailed as you’d expect.

My outfit today is the Provincial Outfit by Moon Elixir for We Love Roleplay, these super cute shorts and bra top are so pretty, I love the ribbon details, so feminine but not overly frilly and the shorts are a little bit cheeky if you know what I mean! Also at We Love Roleplay are my sandals by The Forge and The Broken Tree by Stormwood which comes in four season varieties and has poses for multiple people.

My hair is another new one by Blues for Fashion Fair Autumn, a very voluminous style with a cute side parting.

060915-A-First-Taste-of-Aut

I’m really enjoying seeing more autumnal themed stuff starting to appear in events recently, it’s my favourite season because it brings to mind rich colours and cosy nights in front of the fire while the leaves fall outside.

The new round of We Love Roleplay has started and Artisan Fantasy have released a wonderful set called Stony Hollow Festival Treat Set, here you can see the Plank Backdrop, Table, Caramel Apples, Cookies and Pies, so yummy! Also at the event you can find the Ranch Laundry Bucket, Washboard and Windmill Decor. I love the rustic look of these items a lot and both sets have more items available which I didn’t manage to fit in here so be sure to check them out.

On to my outfit, the Florence dress is also at We Love Roleplay, by Les Encantades. The sleeves are separate to the dress itself so you have the option to go sleeveless but really, they’re so cute I couldn’t not wear them! I’m also wearing La Petite Morte’s skin appliers from the event which I’ve completely fallen in love with!

I also have a couple of lovely Arcade bits and bobs to show off, including the super cute Shiba Inu dogs from Half-Deer. There are lots to collect and they are very whimsical puppies indeed. They are colour change on touch, have colour changeable bandannas and have glasses and props which can be switched on and off. My hair is also from The Arcade, the rare Pumpkin Pie hair by Blues and Olive. The rares in this set are so pretty, I’m enjoying them a lot!

The Little Branch have released a new season changing tree at the current round of Cosmopolitan, the Shingle Oak. You can see them here in the background of my photo. As you’d expect from The Little Branch they’re very detailed and look great and having the season change option is definitely a bonus.

cinphul has released the wonderful Moon Curtains which are available in black and brown and six different styles, I’m using one here to decorate my backdrop. The shapes of these curtains are really beautiful, some gathered at the bottom, some looking like the wind is moving them, I’ll show them off a bit more in a future post but definitely worth checking these out.

A First Taste of Autumn

020915-Fancy-Decor-W

Ok, I know this isn’t my usual style but as soon as I put on the gorgeous Kacey overall by Salt & Pepper for the current round of Shiny Shabby, I felt instantly glamorous! The overall comes with a hud to change the leather and metal pieces and is available in five colours.

I’ve teamed the overall with one of the rare hairs from Blues & Olive’s set for The Arcade, the Pumpkin Spice hair. This is a very full and glamorous hair with wonderful waves. The set consists of several different bangs which can be mixed and matched with the freebie hair and the rares which have a hud option to turn the front piece on and off.

Now for the accessories! My shoes are part of FDD’s Little Mermaid set at Enchantment and my pretty bracelet by Kibitz is also available there, you only have a couple of days left to get your fix of mermaidy goodness so hurry! My glasses are by Zoom for IDK and top off the whole look nicely.

The bulk of my decor today is Fancy Decor’s FroYo set for The Arcade, I’m showing almost all the available pieces here and I’m sure you’ll agree it looks fantastic! I love the colour scheme and the desserts and toppings themselves look so delicious! The building itself is so pretty and each piece is very well crafted. Things I’ve added which aren’t part of the set are the basket tables, chairs, vases and the rug.
