Rode the wind off a beaten track

.rode the wind off a beaten track

Shiny Shabby opens today with a new round and I’m super excited to share this dress with you guys, from my new brand Miss Chelsea. This will be our first event so I’m nervous and thrilled all at the same time. We decided to go with a vintage style, lace sun dress. Perfect for spring, easy to pair with sandals and a light cardigan, or tattoos and boots for an edgier look. It comes in standard sizes, and includes versions for the Belleza Venus, SLink Physique and we’ve made a version for the Maitreya Lara. The Maitreya version is not official, since the developers kit for that is not yet available, but all 3 of us in this picture are wearing it and it fits nicely. But please try the demo.

Also I simply cannot be more in love with this hair from Lamb. It’s for the TAG gacha, and even though I personally found this a huge pain to have to get the HUD, activate it, etc etc, when I was in a rush to grab the hair and take a picture, it was worth it, because it couldn’t have completed this look better.

Finally I completed the little scene with a new tyre swing from Cheeky Pea at Kustom9, a great spring decor item!

Sooo much new stuff in this picture and so little time to write about it all!

First of all I’m wearing the Freja shorts from Pixicat, that were recently released for We <3 RP. Of course, they're not just fit for RP purposes, but all sorts of wear! They also come with the option of embroidered flowers on the front, that you can turn on and off with the HUD. I adore the high waist and vintage style cut, he frill adds that little bit more of a feminine touch too.

I added the new roundneck top from Coco that's out at FaMESHed. What's great about this time is that it comes with cuffs and a collar as separate attachments. That means there's a ton of ways to wear it. I've been wearing it with just cuffs around the grid, but decided to keep it simple and plain for this shot. I layered it with the Bejewelled Cardigan from Fishy Strawberry also out at FaMESHed.

The hair is a classic updo, which I only found out about because Miss Foxtrot Plurked pictures of herself in it about 100 times. Luckily she did though coz I'm in love! You can pick this up by Catwa at the Fashion Fair.

There's a few new furniture pieces in this shot too. The piano and chair are both from Apple Fall's amazing gacha at The Chapter Four. The mirror which was the inspiration for this picture, is by Theosophy who are guests at Collabor88 this month. The romantic style curtains are also at C88, by Half Deer. And the last bit of new are the stacked tables from Cheeky Pea.

Now if you'll excuse me please, I have to go and spend an hour writing all these credits XD

Pulled on a comfy sweater today so I could get cosy in this pic with a friend! This oversized sweater is from Zenith at this month’s round of FaMESHed. I love the cut off shoulders, it makes it that little bit different from others that are around right now. I’ve actually been wearing it for a few days just with a pair of ugg boots and no pants, although leggings, jeans or some knit stockings would be great to pair with it, but I felt like being bare!

Also, I just need to gush over this hair from Tableau Vivant a little bit coz I’m sooooo in love. It’s out now at C88 and hasn’t left my head since I got it! Messy, wavy curls are always yummy and we need more on the grid!

Other new things include the jacket Trip is wearing, from Amitomo at TMD, which comes in both male and female versions. The rustic, picket bed is a recent release from Cheeky Pea at N21.

We’re using a new couples pose from oOo Studio that you can pick up now at The Mens Dept.

I’ll Love You For A Thousand More

I'll love you for a thousand more

I’m realllllly feeling all the warm autumn colours the past few weeks, if my pictures weren’t enough of an indication. After spring, autumn is by far my favourite season. I guess I just like those transition months. It’s been a while since I took a picture with my bff4life, Harper, so I asked her yesterday if she was up for it, and of course she said yes, how could she turn me down!

Pretty sure I’ve written before about how much I love this girl, but I’ll say it again. All the sweet, cute, mushy, cheesy things you can imagine – that’s how I feel about her. I’m so thankful to have her as part of my life.

Anyway, onto the stuff in the picture, which I know is what you’re really reading for! Pixicat released these sweaters as part of the small Ferosh collection a couple of weeks ago, but today she’s put 2 colours – the orange that I’m wearing and a yellow – out for FLF. Don’t miss out on the chance to grab such a great bargain and pay a visit!

We’re both wearing hair that you can find at the Mystic Realms Faire, mine is by Tableau Vivant and Harper’s is from Exile. I love the flow of both of them and that they are long with hairs without being BIG, if that makes sense? Don’t get me wrong, I love a bit of volume, but not always into big cartoony or princessy looking hair. The loose curls and waves on the Tableau Vivant are just perfect, I do love curly hair in SL, probably coz my RL curly hair will never look that perfect!

The shoes on me are from Reign and are out at The Season’s Story. I love casual flats like these, they’re so easy to wear day to day. I expect if you see me around the grid just in the day time, that I’d be wearing these. A perfect inventory staple.

Cheeky Pea have released a few items lately, this autumn cosy is out at The Mens Dept and comes in several different prints, as well as both an adult and PG version. There’s also a set from them at The Season’s Story, which I used a few decor pieces from like the tall pumpkin stacks, acorn lights and the lamp ladder.

Anyway, that’s me off for the day. Hope everyone has a fantastic weekend and I’ll be back soon!

Christmas Puddin’

Christmas Puddin'

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!

Collabor88 Bloggers Comp

If you read my blog a lot then you’ll know that I’m a huge fan of C88. So when they announced a few weeks ago that they were holding a competition to find a new blogger I couldn’t resist entering. Plus I’ve decided that I quite like competitions because they really push me to try out new things and be more creative. You can find all the info on the competition here¬†and my credits are listed on my entry here. You have until the 25th of October to enter and good luck to all!

Oh and I just wanted to say…these bird cages I used? I’m so in love with them. They’re by Cheeky Pea and are at this months C88, not only are they fantastically detailed mesh but also they’re only one, yes ONE land impact each! It’s safe to say that these will now decorate some part of every house that I ever own from now on. Ever.
