Sleepless

Sleepless

Insomnia sometimes hits me – especially when I have a test the other day, or exams or something else important. No matter what I do to calm myself down – as soon as I lie in bed I am wide awake again. So when I went to FAIR and saw the “sleepless bed” from flowey & art dummy, especially with the poses included, I just had to take it, because this all looked way too familiar. The sleepless bed has a Land Impact of 7 and holds 11 animations including a reading one with book.

The Club Chair in my back is from Trompe Loeil and it is currently on sale. Hurry up because the sale ends 28. October! The Club Chair is available in 8 different colors and holds also 8 neat animations. And what I especially like about the chair is that it is not a supercute girly kind of furniture. It matches perfectly to boy rooms also.

Talking about rooms: L&K Prefabs released this adorable skybox for the new round of the Home And Garden Designer Warehouse. “The Attic” is a supercute sky home with flawless textures and it is 100% mesh. The Land Impact is 86 and I like about the skybox that it is copy and mod – so with some building skills you can alter it also to your needs. And again – I really love the texturing on this one – it just looks so real to me. It definitely has style and flair galore.

The Photographers Lamp is from [HANDverk] and is available in the current Mens Department. The design is a true classic and it is one of these special pieces that give your virtual home that special extra touch. This one should not be missed!

My everyday skin is – as you probably know, because I often tell – Toban from KENTO. And I was so happy to learn that KENTO finally released a new skin: “Preston” comes in 4 different color tones (from above left to below right T1 – T4) and each package includes the skin, the skin with teeth, eyebrow shaper and eyes. It has been a while since KENTO released the last skin – but the designer definitely used that time well because you can see on Preston the progress and the subtile shading. With skins in general there are always some critical points like seams on the hands i.e. and I did not notice one single seam on the skin. So this is definitely a high quality skin for a fair price.

In general you should visit KENTO anyways if you are looking for a new skin because all older skins are on sale now! And if this got you all excited – there is even more, because I spotted some “Coming Soon” placeholders in the store and this can only mean: KENTO will release some new skins soon. But in the meantime: Preston is definitely a top state of the art skin.

The white pearl undies are the current Freebie at VITAMEN and I am always surprised with what ideas the designer comes up. When I look in my undies drawer I see a lot of boxers but VITAMEN truly pushes the underwear fashion forward. And the freebie comes not only in white but also in gold, is extremely well done and textured – and you can not ask for anything more.

The Ghost of Halloween

The Ghost of Halloween

If there is one holiday in secondlife that is celebrated gridwide and with a refreshing childish sense of decorations and fun it definitely is Halloween. And also Halloween is the time where shops love to give away quirky and lovely designs as gift in hunts, group gifts and freebies.

If you have a thing for Halloween and are up to a fun adventure I strongly recommend the “Ghost Of Halloween” Hunt organized by :sey, AMERIE, LikeA, Honey Kitt, KAME and Uw.st – and this definitely is a fun hunt. You have to chase for ghosts, so far, so good. BUT the ghosts move all the time – some approach you, some just run away from you and you have to chase them over 3 connected sims. Some of the ghosts hold treasures and some of them… well you definitely should do the hunt to see what happenes. I will definitely not give away too much here to spoil the fun.

With this hunt I enjoyed the hunting so much and also I recommend to do it with a friend like I did. But nevertheless – you make contact to other residents easy while you run behind some ghosts together. But of course there are gifts. And they are wonderful. In fact everything you see in the pictures is indeed a gift. :sey give away (amongst other items) the halloween cat on my hat and the halloween bag. AMERIE donated this bone mesh sweater for the hunt and one of LikeA’s Ghost holds these halloween pants for you. And also the set is a gift and it comes also from :sey. It has 10 brilliant fun poses.

The hat and the hair are not from the hunt, but it is the current group gift from DURA. There is a female gift also and like every DURA Hair it is wonderful made. And the skin I am in today is the new group gift from Tableau Vivant. The Marilyn Skin comes in 5 different styles – shown above is style (a).

Autumn

Autumn 1

There is so much going on in SL right now and boy – it is hard to keep track of all the fabulous events and fairs and hunts and sales and releases – well… you name it. Nevertheless: let me point you fashionable guys directly to FAIR. FAIR is the new fair pricing event and the second round starts today. Ok, to tell you the truth – of course there is so much more stuff for the Ladies, but if you look close enough you find some fantastic stuff for yourself also. {EPIC}s share is this autumn outfit that contains the sweater, the chinos and also the shoes. The ensemble “Afternoon Adventure” is of course mesh and I love the brownish earth tones on this one.

Another thing started today – and it is a hunt. The Autumn Hunt is a rather small one with about 20 shops – so you can do this one on one weekend – or in a few hours if you are an experienced hunter. Again not so much stuff for lads in it, but there is this supercute campfire from Garden Of Dreams with a lot of poses and animations in it. Definitely my favorite find in the hunt. Oh and the Autumn Hunt is not free but 5 L$ per item which is not too much if you consider the prices.

To stay in the Autumn theme I made the pictures in another Dreamscene also from Garden Of Dreams. The Graveyard is kind of spooky and very foggy – but it matches so well the season and – like all Dreamscenes from GOD – is wonderful made.

Autumn 2

List of stuff:

Outfit: {EPIC} Afternoon Adventure (for FAIR – opens today)

Campfire: Garden of Dreams – Relic Campfire (for the Autumn Hunt | 5L$ per item)

Dreamscene: Garden of Dreams – The Cemetery

Hellos my Sweets,

long time no hear. I’m really sorry for that and I blame my boyfriend for it!

But, now I’m back with a new entry showing you some items from the best accessories designers within second life. And as you should know by now they always come together once a month to present new and exclusive stuff at L’accessories, so I highly recommend that you check out the new marvelous round! This month the organisers also have started a Flickr competition with great prices. Please have a look on the Flickr page for more inforamtion and how you can participate.

My todays look is an overall very elegant and  sexy look. It is in most parts dominated by the mesh Feathered Waspie created by La Penderie de Nicole. You can find this great and very detailed item at the current round of L’accessorie  in the colors Latte and Onyx (200L$each). Both colors are available as a fatpack for 320L$.

The astonishing set of jewellery I’m wearing today is from amorus. And of course it is also available at L’accessories. You can choose at the venue between 8 different colored versions (325L$) each or make yourself a gift with buying all 8 in the fatpack for 1999L$. Each set contains two necklaces and matching earrings.

My long braided hair is wonderful created by Eliktatira. You can find it in their mainstore.

But, now I have to say good bye for today. Wish you all a great Friday and in a few hours a great start in the weekend. Read you soon my sweets.
