Everyday is Christmas

 

I woke up yesterday morning to amazing new, I’d been accepted as an official blogger for Llorisen. I am so excited to be able to incorporate the fantastic builds from this amazing creator into my new decor attempts. I’ve had some really encouraging comments and thoughts on my decor scenes and I appreciate all of them. Decor is daunting to me, always has been and I tried to break out of my shell once before but stepped away because I felt that my scenes didn’t do justice to the amazing creators providing me items. This time I’ve had a little help and take my time in building a scene, moving items to fit my pictures. So I am going to give this an honest effort and do my very best to bring you stunning items for our absolutely amazing and creative decor creators in Second Life.

Llorisen is at FaMESHed with this fabulous, four-bedroom skybox. What I love the most about this skybox is that it comes with optional wall and flooring HUDs, you can paint your walls to be mix and match or all one color and each room is individually changeable. The skybox can be purchased for 499L and each texture HUD for 149L. I didn’t do a shot of each room, I’m not that confident yet in my decorating capabilities but I chose the main room and a cute Christmas setting.

I included the texture change tree from Jian, presents from Astralia, decor from Moss & Mink, Chez Moi, The Loft & Aria, Half Deer and Krescendo. There is so much cute holiday decor out right now you don’t want to miss out.

This super cute pose is a new release from Reve Obscura, it is a bento pose which means it requires a bento viewer (not optional) and bento-enabled hands for the best use. It comes with a present to hold and is so super cute, I thought it fit perfectly in with my scene.

Winter Wonderland

 

I swore I was going to get this blog written today and I will. Sometimes I see items from designers and immediately the wheels start turning. Ideas float in my head aching to be brought to fruition. With this set of pictures today I had help from my good friend Adalynne Romano if you haven’t seen her blog before you really should check it out. She’s what I want to be when I grow up. Her decor blogging is just phenomenal. So when I was setting the scene for this post I asked for her help and what you see is the final product.

This scene was created by taking several amazing items from decor creators all over the grid. The trees, hill, and grass are all from the amazing The Little Branch. This funky tree, snow hill, and grass are all part of the brand new set from FaMESHed. This set also includes 2 other grass types, another hill, and a frozen deer. The big tree is animated and just looks absolutely gorgeous inworld.

The cute animals are from Half Deer and United InshCon. The Deer family comes with all three animals and are gacha, and the foxes are part of an old gacha that I was lucky enough to find on the MP. They all completed my scene so fantastically. The other trees pictured are also from The Little Branch available inworld and on the MP.

The outfit is several pieces that came together to create a great winter look. MOoH! has this adorable puffer coat with attached shirt available at The Frozen Fair. This jacket comes with a HUD that includes 6 colors, the shirt is black and is not color change. This jacket is fit for all three Belleza bodies, Ebody, Maitreya, both Slink bodies, Ocacin, TMP, and both Tonic bodies, as well as standard fitmesh sizes. I paired it with some older leggings from Blueberry and voila my look was created.

I completed my look with a brand new hair from Limerence and super cute boot from Empire. Both are available right now at Winter Trend. The hair comes with a hat that you can wear with the hair or separately or not at all. This is my first experience with Limerence and I’m impressed, I’ll be checking more of these hairs out in the future. The boots are made for all 3 Belleza, Maitreya, and both Slink bodies. They come with a full-color change HUD including 20 colors for the boots and straps and 22 colors for the socks as well as 20 colors for the sole and 3 metal colors. I just love Empire.

Part of my thought involved this pose. When I had thoughts swirling around my brain on how to make this picture come to life this pose was foremost in my thoughts. This is a couple pose and is bento, I feel bad asking people to collaborate with me and I didn’t feel like buying stuff for my alts since I am never on them anyway why would I want to spend more money on them? This pose is still fabulous for one person and you can grab it inworld and on the MP.

I really wish I had been able to get to blogging this head this weekend while it was still on sale, however real life comes first and taking care of my kids is the utmost importance to me. LAQ released Scarlet at a special price for this past weekend only, it is now full price of 5000L. It comes with the motion capture head, HUD, shape, three eye colors, 11 gestures, 3 voice animations, and an eyebrow shape.

It is absolutely adorable right out of the box, I didn’t modify the face at all for this post and will play with my shape later on. I had tried LAQ when bento first came out and I couldn’t bring myself to spend the Lindens wanted for the mesh heads. Now I am collecting quite a few heads so hearing that this head was on sale I knew I had to try it and review it. Omega is already built into this head, no need for additional HUDs either, so you can wear your favorite skins. I do wish there were more options for animations but overall I am very happy with this head.

Head *new*: LAQ – Scarlet MoCap

The Makeover Room is still going on until December 26 and trust me you do not want to miss out on the amazing creations from our designers. Kosmetik is there with a brand new set of eyes and Dulce Secrets will make your lips shine.

This necklace from Vinyl is super cute and a new play on bestie necklaces, again I don’t like asking people to help me, I feel it’s an imposition. I really need to get over that… Anywho, this necklace is available at Pay It Forward and each pack comes with two necklaces in each pack. The necklaces and HUDs are no copy and transferable to give one to your best friend. but the pinecone and tag is such a cute idea. I don’t know how she comes up with these.
