Let it Snow

For item credits, plese see below the blogpost

Hello my Sweets!

Today is my first blogpost about the upcoming With Love Hunt ❤ organised by CHIC Managment in Second Life. And this hunt is full of gorgeous gifts. The With Love Hunt ❤ is a special way from the creators to say “Thank you” for the support of their customers throughout the past year.  Each Huntitem will cost you 10L$, but all of them are worth much more than this little amount of Linden Dollars.

For my first blogpost from a series of covering this event, I used the Essences Saga Skin, and the wonderful Paris Black Diamond Necklace from Maxi Gossamer. As you all know, I’m in love with the Essences Lipstick, and today I put on one from the Indy Lipstick Series. My todays hair is again from Dela, and I blogged it already here so this wonderful hair can not be found in the With Love Hunt <3. And the lovley “Bow” Pose is included in the gift hidden at In~Stance for the With Love Hunt <3.

Right after the next image I have preapred all the credits for the items used in this blogpost. Read you on the weekend.

Winter Morning

Winter Morning 1

Autumn and especially winter are the best seasons for decoration within secondlife. Creators release one adorable item after another and makes even me wanting to own a sim. On the other hand I guess I would constantly decorate and alter it and would have no time anymore for blogging… Anyways – here we go: a new hunt is coming to the grid, organised by CHIC. And that alone should set you in instant exitement because you know what you can expect from a CHIC event. Top stores, wonderful gifts and a way brilliant organised hunt. This one is called “With Love <3” and the gifts are wonderful. It is a great pleasure for me to show you some of the male gifts and also some decoration and furniture pieces you can get in this hunt.

The jumper, scarf and mittens is the gift from [ SAKIDE ] and I really love the casual and realistic look of the items. This indeed is something you could find in my RL wardrobe also. The jumper and the mittens are rigged (and can be worn seperate also) and the scarf contains a resizer. Definitely a keeper. The painter pants are from [Sheep Door] and the boots are from Adjunkt. Please note that the With Love ❤ Hunt is a 10 L$ Hunt – but the items are definitely worth it.

Winter Morning 2

I already gave you some decoration ideas for your parcel/sim in my post “Cozy” and I promised there that I will give you a better look on the fabulous new mesh winter trees from Garden Of Dreams. Well here they are. Indeed all plants are from GOD which I love to use since they are copy and you can fill your sim easy with a very attractive winter look. The “Chill Grove Tree” Set from GOD contains 3 different types of trees that come in three sizes, but also in two different appearances: there is one version with branches and a “dead” version without branches at all. So that is a hell of a set! Like said the trees are mesh – and therefor the landimpact is a thing you have to deal with. One tree has a landimpact of 18 but on the other hand the trees rez much faster then the usual sculpted ones. And in my opinion they also look much better. So with trees I recommend to mix sculpted trees with mesh trees as accent.

These adorable benches in my little park come from estatica – a shop I got to know via the Silverlining Hunt. The Musgrove Benches come in a rounded version (around the tree) and in a straight version. And also – of course – in a fatpack with both. Each bench holds 47 animation/animated poses for male and female avatars and for couples. This is the perfect item to decorate your sim or home because not only that the benches are extremely well done – they are also copy and each bench has just 1 LI! And even if I used it on my winter set – they look also good in all kind of seasons sims.

The cute lanterns are from Trompe Loeil. They are available in 2 available color/material options. And each package contains a version with the Handle up or down. Also the lanterns have 1 LI and they are also copy – so this is also the perfect decoration item for your virtual home. The light is owner driven only and the texturing – like with all Trompe Loeil produkts – is absolutely flawless.

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.

Sleepless 2

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!

Sleepless 3

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.

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

Just Got Up 1

I love autumn and I guess everyone does. Indian summer, the typical autumn food – all that kind of things. However – I strongly dislike getting out of bed especially in autumn. When it is kind of chilly in the room because you have not turned on your radiator yet and you bed is just snuggly warm.

One thing I would love to own in RL is this adorable Cupboard Bed because it is literally like a sleeping cave. And I love caves – especially if they are snuggly warm. The Morning Light Cupboard Bed comes from Trompe Loeil and is their item for the new fair FAIR. You can choose between many patterns and woods and of course also between x-rated and PG poses. I absolutely adore the paisleys patterns on the cushions. And by the way – the bed matches perfectly the Baroque Bench from the Arcade Gatcha Festival that also comes from Trompe Loeil.

Noticed the cute bag hanging on the bench? It comes from .evolve. and the package containes a rigged and unrigged version which I find quite clever. Also it is a lovely messenger like bag and a neat accessory also. .evolve. recently moved to a new sim – so please update your landmarks. My outfit today comes from a fairly new store called [NoWay]. [NW] has some very casual mesh pieces for men like these denims and also the striped dress shirt. You definitely should check this store out. And my boots come from Adjunct. I got them earlier in the 49L$ Sale for Dudes – but they are still available in the Adjunct store.

Now i will leave you with the detailed credits for todays blogpost while I snuggle back in my bed.
