Spring Affair

I still find it very odd to do a picture in which I don’t feature myself in some way, decor blogging is so very different than fashion blogging and I am still learning. Collabor88 opened today and with it came some amazing items that just screamed spring at me, there is still snow on the ground here and I wish it was spring. My picture today reflects my insane need for spring and warmer weather that is still months off for my part of the world.

Writing the blog for decor is easier than for fashion but setting the shot is far more difficult in my opinion, of course, I have been a fashion blogger for the better part of the three years that I have been blogging. Scarlet Creative and Half Deer both have new releases at this round of Collabor88. This lovely, one room home is only 62LI. It is modifiable and copiable and just truly a lovely build. Grab it right now for an astonishingly low price of just 188L during Collabor88.

The lovely roses lining the different part of this house are from Half Deer, they are available in 6 colors with 13 shapes total in each pack, you can also grab the fatpack and get all the colors.

Miss Daisy

Okay, so several things to cover.  First…I am so excited and relieved that I finally got this picture done.  My computer/Firestorm/SLviewer have been crackheads the last couple of weeks.  I go days with beautiful graphics and no problems…then I’ll log in and only see half of me (if that) and not much else….and it never rezzes in.  The other day Darth’s eyeballs was floating on the platform grumbling about making space for the 457th other item that would make his shot perfect and I wondered idly what he was talking about, since I saw nothing (but of course, floating eyeballs).  I had no body…just eyeballs and hair …so I relogged onto the SLviewer and I suddenly understood.  He was surrounded by an entire small village that he had put together…I had only seen his eyeballs.  Switching to the SLviewer is a pain in the ass as a fix since it gives me constantly flashing textures and awful windlights.  Anyway…it’s weird…for days I’ll have problems, then I’ll log in and Firestorm will be perfect….for a few days….rinse…repeat.  Yesterday morning was a good day so I figured I would get in as many pictures as possible and worry about editing and such afterwards.  I got to picture #4.  Should have been a relatively simple shot…not much in it.  Me, some gorgeous lanterns and anc’s lavender.  I’m all set up…it looks fabulous…I take a test shot on medium, put the graphics back on ultra and refresh the camera.  Then I get the little spinning circle of death.  It’s like the blue screen of death…just different curse words.    I sat and waited and hoped for the best….no such luck…SL had frozen and subsequently booted me.  Basturds.  When I logged back on…yep….nada…or half nada anyway.  I was so aggravated that I just blew it off and went to edit one of the other pictures as that always relaxes me.  Last night I came back on and amazingly…the gods of Firestorm were smiling on me…mostly.  I got all my angles back, put my beautiful favorite windlight on and got ready to shoot.  The only thing missing, strangely enough, was the chain from my necklace.  I tried opening a new one from the original box, tried a different color, tried rezzing it on the ground….still no chain.  I took the pics anyway and came up with a workaround.  I logged one of my alts on the SL viewer, tp’d her over and zoomed her camera in at mostly the same angle.  Nearly everything looked like shit and I had no head on for her, but that chain was there!  I took the pic and painted that chain into my otherwise good shot.  So much work for what was supposed to be a simple shot…and why?  Because I love you Nino Heartsdale and I didn’t want to do the picture without your daisy necklace!  (I say that as I just noticed the matching ring never rezzed in…oh well!).   Here’s the close up…. chain and all.  The Miss Daisy set is just so pretty and works so well with the whole look, especially the hair and daisy headpiece by pr!tty for Enchantment.  The head, by the way, is Valerie from Akeruka.  Valerie is newly updated to bento and comes with an array of cute animations.  I am not wearing any applier, this is all default skin and makeup that comes with Valerie, nor did I edit the face in any way…she is that beautiful ❤

Yep…that came from this (for some reason my damn head kept bobbling even though I was on a pose!):

On a plus side, you can see the beautiful blouse and texturing by Aleutia that’s on sale today!   Holly, a brand new release, will be offered for only 99L for group members and comes in both prints and solids.  You can mix and match the ruffle with the color change hud for many different looks ❤

The hair and lanterns (and are they not gorgeous!) are from Enchantment, which just opened yesterday and is spinning the tale of Rapunzel this round….do stop by ❤

Sophia and The Hill

Sophia and The Hill

So it’s day 3 for Fantasy Faire 2017.  Yesterday I visited The Hill…a bucolic countryside sim complete with grazing animal life and charming houses built into rolling hills.  Among the 20 creators on the sim I found Analog Dog and Aleutia with equally beautiful creations.

The Hill

The Hill (Kilik Lekvoda) – SLURL
A peaceful and beautiful village built into the rolling hills surrounding a small lake. Breathe in warmth, peace, and maybe a little pipe smoke, A place where friendships sprout as readily as the mushrooms beneath leafy green trees.

The Hill 2

I went pretty damned pale today…a bit out of my comfort zone…but I like it!  The Opal skin applier from 7 Deadly Skins is just that…opal in shade…kind of a greyish silvery off white…the pastel brows really did it for me.

Sophia close up

All 3 of these creations are faire exclusives with the proceeds going to the American Cancer Society.  By the way…all of the landmarks that I put for Fantasy Fair go directly to that particular store….buy now…wander later ❤

The Goddess Garden

Bloom is officially open peeps!  Killer hard to get in right now, but I accomplished it within 20-ish minutes or so of focused attempts….I couldn’t live without Jian’s bunnies (they are animated and cute as can be!), Lode’s head flowers or anc’s sunlight…I’m not even going to go into all the gorgeous flowers to be had.  Although the carnivorous specimens from Nomad sound mean and scary..they are a wonder to behold, just like the dahlia’s from CubeRepublic.   There is abundant bloom in everything at the event, you will not be disappointed…and if you’re a gacha fan…the gacha grove is right off to one side with a long row of machines from the participating designers. ❤

Also, don’t forget that We Love Role-Play is in full swing…drop by and pick up some more spring must haves, like this butterfly bench from Aisha or the corset from Belle Epoque! ❤

Let Yourself Bloom

Let yourself Bloom

Springtime is here (for some of us anyway) and things are happening.  The brrrrr of cold is gone, you can once again hear lawnmowers outside and the flowers with all their colors are emerging.  PurpleMoon made my day with this delicate blue rose tattoo for The Liaison Collaborative.  It has a very dreamy watercolor look about it with the phrase “let yourself bloom” lazily meandering up the spine.  How in the world could you hide this under clothing?!  The Liaison designers have brought us a rainy day collection this month … don’t let it pass you by ❤
