Dreams of rainy days and nights up late by the fireplace

The Arcade Photography Contest - Coral Lacey

This’ll be my last post of 2014 so I thought I’d make it a festive one! I’ve used a bunch of items from December’s Arcade round, as well as Christmassy goodies out at TLC. There’s far too much newness for me to talk about, and all of it is pretty amaze but noteworthy mentionables definitely include this beautiful tree from Anc Ltd at TLC’s The Garden, as well as the fun Pixicat onesies available still at The Arcade. There’s a lot going on in this pic, so don’t forget you can click the image to see it bigger on Flickr!

I’m off now for RL vacation and family time, I’ll be back in January with some exciting news that I’ll finally be able to share with you.

I hope everyone enjoys the holidays and has a happy new year. See you in 2015!

Hiiii all! I know my posts have been few and far between of late, but I’m hoping that this is the week I’m gonna make a come back.

There’s a simple reason I haven’t been around as much and the short version is that about 3 weeks ago I stopped smoking in RL. I know that it’s a good thing in the long run, but for now everything that was routine and normal for me…isn’t. I won’t bore you with a whole lot of detail but yea. It’s hard for me to do things that I would’ve smoked during or after, so my PC time has been a lot less than usual.

Anyway! On to stuff you’re actually here to read! First of all I wanna talk about my new shoes! These are the new Cult Stilettos from Just Design, that are add ons to their tip toe feet. Note that is to the JD MyFeet, they will NOT work with SLink feet. I like that JD have given another option for creators to make shoes around, as well as for people who didn’t necessarily like the shape of the SLink feet, which can sometimes appear very wide. Also with JD selling add ons at TDR Fusion for 70Ls a pair, you can’t really go wrong! The nude version that I’m wearing here can be picked up at TDR Fusion for a couple more days, but there is also a release in the main store of 15 other colours, which are priced at 295Ls each. Also they come with this awesome half sock add on, which can be worn with the shoe or alone. Plus you get the usual sock versions with the MyFeet too! So many options for such a great price. Oh and if you’re worried about tinting the feet, then you don’t need to! Just Design have produced not just a line of presets, but special textures to match the most popular skin brands too. Other than the SLink appliers which are made by the skin creators themselves, you can’t get a more flawless match in presets, than the one JD offers.

Also new are these cool steam punk style wings by Atomic Faery for The Fantasy Collective, which opened last week. They have a stained glass effect which I noticed changed colour depending on the windlight setting/angle I used, which was very cool!

I love this Penelope bed by MudHoney that came out a couple of weeks ago at The Garden event. Black, white and purple are one of my favourite bedroom colour schemes so this Glam version is right up my alley, but there are a ton of other colour options available as well as a kids version! There’s another week or so on this event, don’t forget to check it out if you haven’t already.

So that’s me for today, hopefully I’ll be back around more often!

Only 2 more sleeps! This is gonna be my last post for a few days, since I’ll be taking off like everyone else to spend time with my family and friends, so I wanted to do something fun.

I love this bow head piece that’s a new group gift from Just Design, you can pick it up for free in both red and green at the main store, it’s juts a perfect festive accessory for pics or dressing up. I was also happy to find this body suit hidden away in my inventory, I knew it would come in handy when I bought it 50 million years ago! (ok, not that long, but truly must’ve been about 18 months!) It was part of a bunny girl set that Hucci released last year, I’m sure you can still find it in their main store.

I’m wearing another one of Truth’s latest releases from last week as well, this cute Dove ponytail. I really like the volume on the top of the hair coz it gives it kind of a vintage feel. And yes, I know I used these MudHoney table and chairs in my last post too, but I like it ok?!

Finally, I want to mention the pose I’m using. It’s from a store called Corpus, by Diconay Boa. I only found them a month or so ago, via Diconay’s Flickr, but I loved the look of them, especially the lounge series, and thought they seemed really natural. So off I went to check out the store. When I got there, I was pretty disappointed to find all her latest poses were priced at 100Ls each. It’s not a great deal of money I know, but I really couldn’t justify spending that much on a single static pose, when there were so many other great stores out there offering them between 25-50L. I did pick up a pack of her older poses though, which had been reduced to something like 200 poses for 300Ls, since I thought that was a great deal and I’ve used a few of them recently. Then last night I decided I wanted a sitting pose for this pic and after fruitlessly searching a few stores for one that I really liked, I remembered Corpus had some nice ones and even though they were pricey maybe I’d buy one, just coz I had had enough of shopping by now. Anyway, in I went and was thrilled to see that the prices were now reduced to 50Ls per pose, so I picked up more than one and I was so happy with the way this pose turned out for this picture. I really recommend anyone who’s into taking pictures checking out this store if you want to find some great, natural poses, I’ll definitely be going back for more.

Before I disappear into festive celebrations, I also just want to say a little thank you my readers and followers for your support and interest in my rambling and pics over the past year, I hope you’ve found it useful and maybe at times my pictures gave you a smile. I still really enjoy blogging and sharing things with you, and I’m looking forward to a lot more in 2014!

Merry Christmas, happy holidays and all that good stuff!

Happy Monday! I’m full of beans and excited today for a couple of reasons.

First, Seven Emporium released individual marquee letters yesterday for The Garden event, similar to ones that they’d used in signs before, but now with the individual ones you can spell out whatever you want! I’m sure there’ll be lots of creative uses for these on Flickr and blogs over the next few days and I’m excited to see them.

Also, Deadwool have decided to branch out into more female clothes. I’ve blogged a couple of their items before, some mens jeans and unisex boots, and always thought the quality was amazing. So to see them now including more womens items like this amazing Corto coat, really makes me look forward to every new release. The coat is available in a few different colour options and you also get the choice of wearing it with or without the top underneath too. The texturing and mesh work is fantastic quality, with the style being something you can easily dress up into a sexy outfit, or dress down for a more casual look. Either way it’s a great addition for the cooler seasons.
