Peacock

I thought I’d have some fun with this blog and the song Peacock by Katy Perry is so full of innuendo I just had to include it. This outfit is so amazing I couldn’t wait to share it with you all, which is why you get two blogs back to back.

The Annex came up with this beautiful peacock outfit just in time for Mardi Gras or Carnivale depending what part of the world you’re in. This is a gacha set available right now on the PocketGacha HUD. This set includes 2 rares and 14 commons. The corset, skirt, and train are available in four colors and the headdress and bustle are the amazing rares. This is fit for Maitreya only.

When I put this outfit on I immediately thought of a Las Vegas showgirl and found this amazing backdrop in my inventory from Minimal. Part of the Illusion III gacha set released several months ago, you can still get your copy at the main store.

Island in the Sun

It’s my rez day, 7 years in this crazy world we call Second Life. Some bad but a lot of really good things have happened to me over the years. I’ve met people from all over the world, in fact, I adopted a mother that lives in Australia. If it wasn’t for Second Life I wouldn’t have met any of these people and it makes me so happy to know them.

Sometimes I get items to blog that I am just clueless how to put together, then an item will become available that makes everything else fall into place. First, I am going to cover the decor in this photo and then I’ll get to the lovely fashion.

DaD is at FaMESHed with this awesome pool, it includes sits, singles, couples, and family poses built into it. It’s a super cute heart shaped and comes with an optional border piece that you can line up with the pool or make look like a patio.

My goal of one decor/landscape shot a week has become more of a whenever I’m inspired type of thing. Sometimes you get stuff that calls to you and you just have to create a post. Bee Designs was this thing. With a brand new gacha available at On9, I set out to create a lovely setting to show it off.

I had some of the decor already and when I received this blogger pack from Bee Designs I went on the hunt to find the perfect location to showcase this amazing vintage furniture. The furniture is a gacha set that includes 2 rares and 7 commons. It’s a really lovely set and was perfect for my mountain getaway.

I chose this fabulous house from Llorisen, available at the main store location, this two room, two level home has a large deck patio. It’s perfect for a bachelor(ette) or a newlywed couple. I added the fantastic music set from Chez Moi  and is available in adult or PG versions. There is a HUD to texture change the beanbag chairs, record player and stand. A rug and poster are also part of the set and each piece can be purchased individually or as a complete set.

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.

This was fun and although a little weird not to include myself in a picture it was kind of nice not to have to stress over how I looked. I hope you all enjoyed my review of these fabulous decor pieces. Merry Christmas, Happy Hannakah, Merry Kwanzaa, or whatever it is you celebrate this time of year.

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.
