California Morning

California Morning 1Good Sunday everyone. And first of all an excuse to all our readers and of course also to the creators for not blogging that much in the last few weeks. It is funny – our blog became one year old now and yet I faced something like a blogging blocade. If you are a blogger, you maybe know that. If you are not let me try to explain: it was like logging in, putting some scenes and outfits together and was just not feeling it. And since it is my job to represent items the very best way I can I decided not to force it and try to get my blogging-mojo back.

On the plus side: I finally managed to get my ass in gear and to make pictures that are somewhat appealing to me. And of course I have some adorable newness to show you. Two events started beginning of April – The Mens Dept. and The Challenge. And I mixed items from both events for this californian inspired blogpost. The Mens Dept. provided me with a new haircut from Uw.st. The “Lenny Hair” is finally a curly hairstyle – and there are not that much on the grid for men anyways. And i must say I fell in love with this hair. Also Poetic Colors brought some adorable new eyes in the Mens Dept. I am wearing the Jaded Eyes Emerald. The Thorn Necklace comes from Kosh and the Cardigan from !gO! – both also available at the sales event for guys. The denims instead are the new mesh release from [ JP ]:dsg and I simply love them. First of all the texturing is fantastic. And second the denims have a belt that does not look like you are wearing a tire around your hips. Really well done and strongly recommended.

The titel of this post is “California Morning” and it comes from this months theme of The Challenge: California Bungalow. And L&K Prefabs have exactly that as item for The Challenge – a California Bungalow. The prefab has a very bold texturing and has two rooms and a veranda also. And it is not only a 100% mesh build but also beautifully made. I especially love the texturing inside and I hope that the pictures give you a fair impression of that.

California Morning 2What I am showing you here is the main room of the bungalow. The chairs and the side table in the upper part of the picture come from [kusshon] and are – again – from the Mens Dept. The new released Singapore series has a great vacation vibe, but also fits, like shown above, in nearly every kind of room. Like with all items from [kusshon] there are a lot of gadgets included in the furniture. Not alone that the chairs hold 14 animations – the pillows also give you things like magazines, a glass of wine and a cigarette matching some of the animations. I really love the backdrop and the side table with the tropical fruits.

In the lower part of above picture you can see some more items from The Challenge. There is the dining table with chairs from EoD called “Dining at Home”. And the tea set is just one of the many things the table can rez. The nightstand comes from 22769 ~ [bauwerk] and it works as nightstand for your bed, but also as console like used here. The set includes a completely decorated version, a plain version and all decoration pieces as stand alones also. The Light on the nightstand has a turn on/off script inside. The rug is a new release from L&K Prefabs which will come to the store soon in many different colors. The guitar bookcase is from floorplan and again from the Mens Dept. And the antler is a mesh accessory from Scarlet Creative.

California Morning 3Breno just released the Niall Morning Chaise. I really love the texturing on this one and the poses fit even taller avatars like I am. Also there are a lot of new stuff to find in the new Breno Store like the checkmate artwork also. The stars lamp are from *bbqq* and are their share for the new Mens Dept. The books and the newspapers are decoration pieces I gathered for some time now. And the bookshelf in the closing picture is from World Of Wood and I really must say that this piece is definitely one of the most realistic looking bookshelfes I have found in secondlife. So if you have a thing for books you definitely should pay World Of Wood a visit.

The Cottage

The Cottage 1

Welcome to my last pre-christmas post of the year. Tomorrow I will drive to my parents place for the holidays and the internet connection there is way too crappy to make good blogshots. But I still have to catch up on many things like new releases and Advent Calendars and so I picked for this blogpost some of the cutest finds in the grid right now.
The Cottage is an Advent Calendar Gift from 22769 ~ casual couture and it is their gift for December, 23rd. The guys from 22769 have been so kind to give it to me beforehand and anyways – I guess it is time also to say thank you to Manu and Paco that they allow me to clutter their sim with my primmy fotosets. The blizzard topiaries left and right from the stairs come from the Advent Calendar from [CIRCA] and both trees also hold cute poses. Both trees also have these cute giant snowwhite christmas balls and are a wonderful addition to every winterish sim.

The socks are todays item under the huge fir tree in their store – so better hurry up to get them. The jumper and the pants come from the December Mens Dept. And the wonderful quirky Antler Chair I am lounging on is – once again – an Advent Calendar Gift from 22769. It comes with 4 neat poses which are quite easy to adjust.

I really must say I love the “Bertram Desk and Chair” from estatica a lot. It is just that classy piece of furniture to brighten up your virtual home.

The flowers on my desk are from LISP and so is the room divider that seperates the adorable bath from BoatHouse.

We will see each other again “inbetween years” when I come back with hopefully even more stuff to show you. Til then: take care <3

If you are looking for cute winter and christmas things in secondlife obviously now is the right time. Creators have again outdone themselfes this year to bring some really fine products for your avatar and for your homes to the grid. And there are many places where you can get that certain x-mas-feeling – even for a bargain. So since the month is a few days old your first stop definitely should be the Mens Dept. I got myself – again – new eyes there. This time from Poetic Colors who also offer a selection of winter colored eyes. Today I am wearing the icicle ones. The nordic jumper I am wearing is from bleak – it is available in different styles and as you can see in the pictures it looks way real.

Another brilliant find in the December Mens Dept. is the rather taxidermic Antler Christmas Tree from Cheeky Pea. It definitely is outstanding and lovely made and way special. Also the carton box deer head over the chimney is from the Mens Dept. and comes from [HANDverk] (available in two different styles). I have to say that I cheated a bit by adding the festive bow from the “12 Days of Christmas” Calendar from Trompe Loeil underneath it. And to sum the Mens Dept. up: todays house is also from the Mens Dept. and comes from Deco. The Port Richmond Skyloft has an unbeatable quality and gives you enough room for decorating and furnishing. And the denims are the item from [AB]

If you are looking for christmas or winter stuff the “Relay For Life Christmas Expo” is definitely worth a visit. Not only the fairground is lovely build but you also can find some wonderful stuff there also. I got myself the “Festive Chandelier” from Hanaya which is way cute. You can change the color of the ornaments by mouseclick – also it has three different light functions. The silverish wreath is again a gift from the “12 Days of Christmas” Calendar and so is the Noel Blocks at the chimney. Nearly everything else I used comes from the adorable Christmas Calendar from BoatHouse and I really have to say that the Fireplace Tools are my favorite kind of decorative pieces because it is lovely made and just gives the certain extra to the sl homes with fireplace (and we all know – there are a lot of them).

Around The World has some fantastic surprises to offer – and it is my pleasure to show you some items today you maybe would not expect at a “usual fashion fair”. But then again – Around The World is so much more then that. The idea behind the event is to bring all cultures of the world together in one event and let designers become inspired by a special region. And for me inspiration is the key point of everything in second life.

REMY are in the african section and the offerings in their tent are awesome. There is one thing that immediately catched my eye tho: the Beast Hood. The hood – or cape if you like that better – is unisex and comes in 3 different sizes and also with or without fur cast. It is a rigged mesh piece and it is just beautiful done. You can find 7 styles at the booth in Africa.

Fallen Gods are also part of the Around The World fair and Mondra already blogged some furniture from their subbrand ~Libertine~ here. But Fallen Gods would not be what they are if they would not also offer some astonishing skin work at the fair also. Creator Alia Baroque released a complete new skin line exclusive for the event. And since the Fallen Gods booth is located in the Middle East the inspiration is the sun (aureum), marble and sand. And it is hard to pick a favorite one because every skin has something that immediately catches my attention. I must say that I love the “dune riffles” on the sand skin a lot. The Aureum Skin (left) has spakles and sunflare like textures – and the marble one speaks for itself. In other words: the skins are epic and perfect for an unique look and definitely for roleplay.

List of stuff:

Hood: REMY – Best Hood (for Around The World)

Skins: +FALLEN GODS INC.+ – Materica Skins male | left to right: aureum, black marble, sand (for Around The World)

Eyes: Poetic Colors – Classic Gen 4 – Sea Weed

It is funny – in the current Mens Dept. you can find items from different designers that follow one vibe. This time it definitely is skating. But let us start at the beginning: I wanted to go with a complete different look and therefor I purchased the Pilot Cardigan from <HVK> – that is obviously not shown here because <HVK> have a special kind of “shoppingbag” for their items which is the skateboard with the pose you can see above. And I have had a good laugh when I saw this and I somewhat wanted to create a look around this one. And for the cardigan – I will feature the knit from <HVK> in a further post for sure, because it is fabulous.

The denims with the wrapped around shirt are from !gO! and I really love the look of them. Also the shirt moves of course with your walk and shows once again the creativity of designers with mesh. The bicolor v-neck comes from [LV]SOLIDe and comes in 4 different styles and of course, like the pants from !gO!, in mesh male standard sizing.

Halfpipe 2

The super curly hair is from [IRUCO] and is their latest release. Definitely a must if you are not going for the usual haircut in secondlife. The fantastic necklace comes from KOSH. The “Adain Necklace” can be found in the Mens Dept. in five different styles (black, chopper, silver, gold and shown here: brass) and this time you also can find the matching rings at the Mens Dept. I especially love of course the flawless texturing and the brilliant crafting of the necklace which is with every KOSH item I saw. Also you get not only the male version but also the female version and both options are also included with the chest- and spine attachment points. My eyes are from Poetic Colors and have been an item in a previous cycle of the Mens Dept.

Halfpipe 3

List of stuff:

Skin: KENTO – Preston T2

Hair: [iruco] hair28 (black)

Eyes: Poetic Colors – Autumn Eyes “October Rain”

Necklace: KOSH – Adain Necklace (brass) (for the Mens Dept.)

Tee: [LV]SOLIDe – V-Neck bicolor black/beige2 (for the Mens Dept.)

Pants: !gO! – Mads Pants (for the Mens Dept)
