Weekenders

Weekenders

Ok yea, I know it’s only Tuesday but a girl can dream can’t she? After I got so dressed up in not a lot yesterday I wanted to do a more casual look today, which was perfect because Drift just released the weekend tee and capris! I love oversized t shirts and this one with the slipped shoulder reminds me why we’re so much better off with mesh. I remember trying to wear a shirt like that before mesh, system top and prim parts…it just wasn’t happening!

I added the new Minimalist Glasses from Boom that you can find at C88. They’re unisex and come in several different colours. I don’t usually wear glasses but I love these ones and thought they worked with this outfit.

Finally, the little bag on the table is a freebie that you can get on the lucky board at Le Poppycock, I’ve been meaning to use it in a post for a while but hadn’t gotten round to it till today. Anyway it’s cute and modifiable so you can make it bigger or smaller as you like it. Love a freebie!

Sometimes I want to do a blog post coz I’m in the mood to edit a picture, but I’m feeling too lazy to set anything up. I felt like that today and since I just spruced up my living room with some new Loft pieces I figured I’d take a snap of that, then spend some time editing. However, the picture really didn’t need that much and aside from brightening and cropping it, this is pretty much a raw shot. Hope you like!

Hard To Find

Hard to Find

It’s been a while since I did a lingerie post, but I was looking at my “to blog” folder and figured I’d take a quick snap as I had this lush new hair from Truth to show off as well as the fancy, strappy sandals from LaRoo and there’s no better way to show of hair and shoes by wearing little else. It also gave me a chance to use a new pose from Le Poppycock’s latest release!

Lingerie is one of those items that I still prefer to wear in texture layers than mesh. There hasn’t been much mesh underwear about yet, but I’m not really convinced with the ones I have seen. This vintage style set is available at Deetalez, the bodice and panties are seperate items and you can buy the tango appliers seperately as well if you sport the mesh tatas.

I probably should invest in lingerie more but since it hardly ever gets seen it’s the emptiest folder in my inventory. Especially with mesh and alpha layers, most of the time I forget to put it on even, which isn’t great when the alpha isn’t as long as you’d think it’ll be. Ever had that awkward moment where someone IMs you and immediately starts talking about how naughty you are? Yea…I used to think it was a joke about guys looking up our skirts in SL, turns out it’s not and they do it more than we realise ladies! So my tip of the day, always have a look up your own skirt before you leave the house!

Tea For Two

Ok so technically it’s hot chocolate not tea, but hot chocolate for two doesn’t have quite the same ring to it. I was just sitting here in world like this, in my new apartment with my new furniture so I thought I’d snap a quick picture. Although now the more I look at it the more it kind of depresses me and Mr Bear doesn’t seem too impressed either.

Home & Garden Expo – Inspiration Book

So in a recent post I mentioned that I had gone along to the Home & Garden Expo that is being held this week and was completely overwhelmed by the variety of amazing products. I have a tendancy to get distracted easily and buy things randomly without thinking about what will go together and then they end up lost in the depths of my inventory never to be seen again. Please tell me I’m not the only one!

Anyway, I braved it and went back again and this time I dragged the man along with me, he was enthusiastic at first because at least it wasn’t clothes shopping…until he realised the size of it and he gave a two word response, the first one began with F and the second word was “that!” ¬†but somehow I persuaded him. One of the first spots we visited was Windowshopping by Neva Crystall. I had seen this on my previous visit and loved it. Windowshopping is Neva’s collaboration with a new project called Inspiration Book¬†which is founded by Pitsch Parx and already has several talented, creators, builders and bloggers on their team.

Obviously I subscribed to Inspiration Book immediately because this is perfect for someone like me who has eclectic tastes and can be easily distrac……….ohhhh…….pretty shiny…..er, haha, I know you know what I mean! But it seems as though this is the kind of thing that would give me inspiration and help me focus on creating a certain style, which I’m pretty sure is exactly what it’s meant to do.

Well it clearly works because after seeing the Windowshopping stall the man decided we needed a new house and we grabbed the notecard of Neva’s shopping list that was available and much shopping ensued, the majority of which was at Bazar. Later on I went to bed with an empty lot and woke up to this. I cannot take a single drop of credit for anything in these pictures, it all comes down to the inspiration from Neva’s stall, the brilliant creators and the man’s, previously hidden, decorating skills! I was pretty amazed when I logged on to see it all and I have to give him a <3 for that.

I am going to list everything in the pictures in a minute (and try not to miss anything) , but I just want to mention the house first. It’s the Torino by Maven Homes which has been modified somewhat. A couple of walls were removed from inside, a step placed where the kitchen is, the texture on the walls in the living area were changed as well as the floors throughout the entire house. This is the great thing about modifiable prefabs, you can customise them to your liking. Admittedly I suck at it but the man is good, which is lucky for me and the bump, because we have plans to extend it once the little one arrives.

Also briefly, I believe that the items seen here from Bazar are not all available seperately but rather come in sets. Everything you see here from Bazar is available in these sets, Memories Kitchen, Memories Dining Room and Roya Living Room. The sets include all the decor and details, for great prices.

If you haven’t seen Windowshopping or grabbed Neva’s shopping list at the Home & Garden Expo yet I definitely recommend it, and while you’re there don’t forget to hit that subscribo for Inspiration Book!
