Home Sweet Home

So I did it again, I created photos for two separate blogs back to back without writing the blogs. This is a bad practice for me because I end up screwing something up when I do the spam for the blog. I am going to do really well today though because one is a landscape blog and the other is a fashion/decor blog. Enough small talk, let’s get on to the main event.

Llorisen is at FaMESHed again this month and you can grab this lovely farmhouse. You get three different houses in the pack, a standard, lower LI, and a snow covered. Unfortunately, I could not fit the entire build into one picture, it is larger than shown here but this is a pretty good representation. You can see a demo of the house at FaMESHed, and it is just beautifully done.

I chose to decorate the exterior with some older items I have, seems I have a lot of winter decor and even though winter is NOT my favorite season in RL it is ok in SL, at least I don’t feel the cold that it represents like I do in RL. I’m just going to write a list of the adorable items I’ve included because to be perfectly honest I have blogged most of them in the past.

Still looking for that special holiday outfit?  Pop over to Boudoir, the selection of holiday wear will blow your mind.  I’m wearing the Santa Baby Couture outfit, which comes with the boots.  The poinsettia crown is separate and actually comes with pine hair, which I chose not to wear cause I really love the new Poinsettia hair from Analog Dog ❤

Boudoir – Santa Baby Couture (450L)
Boudoir – Christmas Goddess crown (450L) (worn without the pine hair, look for it in the Christmas section of the store up on the wall)
Analog Dog – poinsettia hair (137L)

The First Noel

I had a really hard time naming this blog, it’s medieval, kind of Christmas and nothing really popped out to me. Then I heard Pentatonix’s version of The First Noel and decided it fit pretty well. I was having a hard time with this entire blog, or what lead up to it I should say. I scoured through my list of items from designers I am fortunate enough to blog officially for and nothing jumped out at me. That’s when I realized it might be time to do one for me. LootBox opened and I can’t remember what it was I went looking for originally but then my eyes landed on the gacha from Belle Epoque and I jumped with excitement. I’d been waiting for this set to come into play. I’m a gacha addict, I can admit that fully.

I had just played my heart out to win the set that I really wanted from Belle Epoque in PocketGacha when she released the ad for this dress. I about died, I really think she might be trying to kill me. The Ladies and Servant gacha is available right now at LootBox until January 20 and you can win 33 commons and two rare. What I like about LootBox is that when you win the rare you don’t just win one item, you win 3. It is a unique event.

Today a chose a lovely skin from 7 Deadly Skins which is available right now at Cosmetic Fair. I love 7 Deadly Skins, all of her skins, no matter what head they are based on, they are Omega compatible and come with both head and body appliers. This skin box comes with 13 tones as well as a separate snowflake version in 4 tones and an optional shape for purchase. This skin and shape are based on the LAQ Nyx MoCap head, however, I am sharing it on the LAQ Neve MoCap head which is only 500L until December 24 and then it goes up to the regular price of 5000L. I highly recommend getting this head while it’s on sale, you’ll kick yourself otherwise.

It Came Upon a Midnight Clear

Sometimes you have to step out of your comfort zone, break down the walls that are holding you back, and try something you never have before to grow. This is one of those times. When I heard that Scarlet Creative was looking for a few bloggers to complete the 2018 team my first thought was “I’ve never blogged Scarlet Creative before”. I decided to open up the application and check out the rules and although I don’t feel that I am quite there yet, you never gain anything by not trying. I jokingly call this post my “audition” piece. I hope you enjoy.

When I decided to attempt a full decor blog I decided to choose this gorgeous build available at Collabor88. This 3 level house with a room on each level and is only 177 LI fully rezzed. You may purchase an optional snow roof at the main store location and the total cost of this gorgeous setting? 238L total, but remember the special pricing of the house is while purchased at Collabor88.

While I was looking at the house at Collabor88 I also saw this lovely conservatory and thought it would be perfect to complete my scene, it was only 88L a total steal in my opinion. Only 84LI this conservatory comes with an optional snow roof as well, plus some of the other snow pilings you see around the decor including the snow on the railing of the Scarlet Creative build. I added some lovely trees from The Little Branch including the Giant Cedar that is part of the Hello Tuesday today only at Cosmopolitan and a very miniature version of the Winter Brise tree available at FaMESHed, I thought it made a lovely shrub in front of my window.

I felt like something was missing and got to looking, that’s when I realized I had no lamps or lights of any kind. I hit the marketplace and found this super cute, Victorian lamp post. It is only 7LI and also comes with single and couple’s poses built right in.

White Christmas

I just have to state that this is the biggest decor blog I have ever done and I am pretty proud with how it turned out. That being said, White Christmas has been one of my favorite songs for as long as I can remember. I saw the movie for the first time when I was about 13 and discovered at that time it was my mom’s absolute favorite movie as well. There isn’t a Christmas that goes by now that we don’t throw it in the Blu-Ray player and watch it, my kids love it too. It is a timeless classic and I am so glad it is there to help me make memories with my kids.

PocketGacha, if you haven’t heard of this or used this what have you been doing? Living under a rock? PocketGacha is the new way to play gacha. Every month on the 15th at 7 am you attach your HUD, where ever you are, give it permissions and start playing. Some designers even give you the option of buying the fatpack without playing! This is the most innovative gacha system I have ever seen and I love it.

This month Apple Fall has some offerings for the PocketGacha this month, the first gacha that he has done in 3 years I think I heard the rumor was, I don’t know how true that is but it’s what I heard. This set is so amazing I had to play to win. It includes 2 rares and 8 commons. The truck and wrought iron chair are the rares and OMG that truck is just awesome.

Mesh India also has a lovely set of winter decor in PocketGacha, there is 5 commons and one rare to win in this set.

I needed some stuff to complete my scene and I had heard there was a couple of cute gachas over at The Chapter Four. Bee Designs has a super cute snowman gacha and I found all the yummy treats I could ever need from SESE.

I’m still wearing my LAQ Scarlet MoCap head, I am genuinely in love with this head. I do wish there were more options for animations but other than that I have no complaints. I did discover something last night, the eyes that come with the head are system eyes and simply require an alpha, I’ve gotten so use to mesh eyes it didn’t dawn on me. So I alphaed my eyes out, added my Catwa unrigged eyes and voila now I can wear any Catwa eye applier I want! I chose a stunning set of eyes from LOTUS and yes they are in PocketGacha this month.

Christmas Eve

It’s Christmas time, a time of joy and celebration, of making new friends and holding old friends near. This year has not been the best but I’m looking forward to a year of renewal, of starting over and getting my life back together. I’m looking for the good in things, not the bad. The other day my friend Ellen posted about doing collaborations with other bloggers, I simply commented “I’m shy” because I am really. I hate imposing or feeling that I am imposing on anyone, but Ellen wanted to collaborate. I got to talk to her a bit and learn some more about her. I already knew she did fantastic pictures and her blog was pretty amazing, what I didn’t know though is that she’s only been in Second Life a little over a year and she only started blogging on a real basis back in June of this year. Color me surprised, her photography looks like she’s been at this for years! Make sure to go give her blog and Flickr some love, she’s earned it.

 I don’t typically credit the stuff from the other person’s look but the only other person but I had the forethought to get her items too, that really makes all the difference in the world, but you can check out her blog too for her credits: Blues for Christmas.

Ellen was going to build a scene because let’s admit it she’s a far better decor blogger than I am, but the stress of getting something together was not the goal of this post, we wanted to have fun and share our unique styles. I suggest a sim that I have come to enjoy for my photography, there is a stunning ballroom and you can rez there when you join the free group.

Location:  The Looking Glass

The only addition we made to the scene is this gorgeous Christmas tree from Jian. Available right now at FaMESHed, this tree comes in a pack with a HUD to change multiple things about your tree.

Choosing what to wear may have been the hardest part, but when I showed Ellen this fabulous gown from Lybra she was “let’s do that, I’ll go grab one”. It was then just a matter for me to decide which color would compliment hers.

Dress *new*Lybra – Ara Light Blue (Ellen) and Blue (Nickie) – FaMESHed

That’s where the similarities end, however, Ellen is a stunning redhead, whereas I prefer blonds. Ellen chose a stunning, long hair from Truth whereas I wanted a cute and cute hair. This hair from Magika is brand new and available at the main store location in all four HUD color options.
