More new things!  *Giggles*

In an effort to catch up on some stuff that came through my inventory while I was dealing with holiday stuff and moving, there may be times when I (attempt to) blog multiple outfits in the same post.  Some of you find this to be bad practice, or whatever… but at this point, I’d prefer to make sure that more creations get shown, as opposed to focusing on individual posts for EVERYTHING which will simply burn me out.  Especially at this stage in the game where I’m playing catch-up.

Two of my favourite gowns in my inventory at the moment both come from Kiddo Oh of Dead Dollz, and they were both designed for Miss Virtual World candidates this year.  The first gown I want to show you below, is “Andalusia”, made for Miss Virtual Spain 2015.  The second gown you’ll see is “Tanguera”, made for Miss Virtual Argentina 2015.

Both of these gowns dwell in a color palette of black and red, and both are unique in their own way.  Both are extremely well-crafted, so of COURSE I fell in love with them immediately.

(And then I’ve got Jacob in the background saying, “I really like this dress.  Well, the bottom half.”  LOL.)

It was interesting to sit on the sidelines and watch some friends I’d grown close to take their MVW journey without me.  After some incredibly negative experiences in Colour of Couture, I just couldn’t see subjecting myself to MVW when they are now run by the same people.  So I smiled and nodded, wished my CoC sisters, and some other friends, the best of luck on their individual journeys, and watched as the challenges unfolded before my eyes, on Flickr and Facebook.

From a spectator perspective, there were a lot of interesting challenges this year.  Some stylists hit them head-on and went all out with it… and I loved seeing some things that they came up with.  Jamee Sandalwood was one of my favourites to watch, as was Trinity Aironaut.  And Eleseren with the swimwear challenge blew me away.  Then again, I LOVE color, so I was totally biased.  LOL.

Either way, it was fun to just sit back and watch.  Will I ever try to do MVW?  I don’t know. At this point, from where I’m sitting right now, in this moment, no.  I never will.  Because I don’t have enough personal belief in capabilities of the leadership to instill a sense of individuality and creativity among the contestants, as opposed to conformity to some ideal that squashes everything they are as a PERSON.  I can’t get behind that.  I’m sorry, but I can’t.

For right now, I’m just lingering back.  I’m doing Mr&Miss Model International because it compounds on a few ideas that I’ve been looking for in fashion from the very beginning: creativity and individuality are EMBRACED… and FEEDBACK is offered after every challenge.  That is the thing that makes me hold up my pom-poms and scream “Whoo MMI!”  I’ve been dying for feedback for years.  As a dancer it’s crucial.  As a model, I feel it is too.  How do you know how to better prepare for the next casting after you don’t succeed in the last one, if no one gives you CONSTRUCTIVE criticism?

Anyway.  I’m just having fun being me.  And that’s all that matters right now.  I don’t need MVW.

Baking Sale

I survived the birthday party yesterday, well at least 2.5 hours of it.  Thankfully, it was held outdoors even if it meant bearing the cold wind.  I was wearing my leather jacket that rarely gets used so that kept me somewhat comfy.   Instead of what I would call more substance they had an assortment of crackers, hams, fruits and cheese to eat and one of my favorite wines moscato.  Just for that you could say it wasn’t so bad after all.  There was no traditional birthday cake.   In it’s place was this huge cookie cake that seems to be more popular these days that had gobs of chocolate chips in it. I took a sliver of it just to taste.

Now here I am baking up a storm in Second Life.  Shhh… I really got them yesterday at the pre-tasting of the Atelier Kreslo’s Farewell Bake Sale that opened today.   I am only showing a few of the goodies you can find at the bake sale.  While these cakes look absolutely yummy, personally I am more likely to take a serving or two of the creme brulee.

Renting a home in Second Life – Family time

Previously posted @ Pure Eggs & Spam.

Brackley Meadows NEW

I was perusing flickr the other day when I saw the most sweet photos of some homes. I contacted the owner and found out that they are part of a new family role play sim “Brackley Meadows”.

I shot over to take a look around and fell in love with this little house above. For just 250L it was mine for a week ! I got 100 prims as part of the deal, which is plenty in this day and age to furnish with. As you can see its a three storey home, the rooms are on the small side but it’s ever so cosy, if you look really carefully you might see I have already installed my kitchen.

Brackley Meadows

The sim is set out around a grassy park area, which includes a playground for children. My home faces out onto the park which is really nice, I’ve had a couple of walks and met with some interesting people to chat with. I’ve also cycled around and not noticed much in the way of lag at all yay!

Brackley Meadows 2

When you land, you will find yourself in the Tourist & rental centre. This has a little bookcase where you can grab notecards about available rentals, a who’s/who for estate help, and also job opps (non paid but sounds FUN!) There are plenty of things to occupy your time, a reading room, day car centre, health facilities and a smattering of little shops.

Brackley Meadows 4

Not only small terraced homes but big sprawling family ones. The rental prices are really affordable but what struck me the most is the feeling of warmth. You’re greeted on the street, other residents and visitors are more than keen to chat and role play (if you wish). I’ve got a feeling that this will turn into great community.

Kirsten and Hiram’s Fall and Winter 2014 Home

Previously posted @ kirstentacular.

We were really late in making our fall home this year. I am not sure what happened but fall kind of flew by and now its time to change to winter and put up Christmas decorations! In fact I was so late in blogging this post that I just decided to show you how I changed from fall to winter in the same post as well. We used the barnesworth anubis bates house as our fall house. Inside the color pallette I went with is chocolate, teal, hot pink, grey, light blue and slight dashes of burnt orange. My overall decorating theme was french country with pops of color. I was inspired by the tv show Color Splash with David Bromstad. I love that designer! My walls are mostly grey and I put pops of color into my decor- a trend that David does often. So please come inside and look around my fall home!
I will start with my living room because this set and specific texture that I fell in love with is where all of my decorating began and what drove my color scheme. This is the Alto set by Abiss and its actually on sale at creation.jp currently. It is still a lot of lindys but I really think its gorgeous and you get so many designer textures with the one purchase too. Here is how I changed this room for Winter/ Christmas. Its hard to capture everything in still pictures and so I made a little video that will be later in my blog too.
The living rooms flows right into the dining room and the hot pink, chocolate, and teal color pallete continues in my fall home and of course was changed for Christmas which you can see in the video. 
It is time for a video break. This video will show the fall and winter outside, living room, and dining room of my home as well as the two bathrooms that remained the same in the season change. 

Next, I have my LAQ Decor Kitchen in grey wood and teal appliances and another angle of the dining room. 
One of the things I love best about this house are my two bathrooms. I think they are both adorable. One is beachy, fun, and calming (downstairs) and the other is vibrant, bright, and bohemian (upstairs). 
The last two rooms in my home are the Master bedroom and Lexi’s room. 
And last is Lexi’s room. Lexi is one of my best friends in SL and she always has a place in our home!
I hope you enjoyed your peek into our Second Life home. I love to decorate! Here is our home at night with Christmas lights!

Aria2

The newest round of N21 is here and I am featuring a couple of items that can be found there. The first is the newest living set by [Aria] called the Delilah and consists of the sofa with decorative pillows, ottoman and throw, decorative vases with poppies, canvas pile and the birch trio.  For this exclusive round [ARIA] has made three exclusive upholstery textures and can be purchased as either pg or adult version.

The Den 1

The next few pictures is showing the newest home by The [Den.] that can be found also at N21. The Riverview is a 54x32x12m mesh home with a land impact of only 95.

The Den 2

I took pictures from two sides of the house to give you a glimpse of how it looks from the outside and the next two pictures shows you a view of the inside downstairs.

The Den 3

As you can see it is very spacious, which means you can move freely without bumping into things or people.  You can check it out for yourself at the event.
