Retreat

Retreat 1 Happy Sunday everyone. Todays blogpost is dedicated to some finds at the Mens Dept., some hunt gifts and most of all again decoration for you winter homes. But lets start with my todays outfit and look: The shirt and the pants I am wearing are from the Mens Dept. and they are the items from etam. Nice rigged mesh items and I like the pants because they are just that kind of homewear I love to put on on a lazy sunday. The boots are from BSD Designs and are also rigged mesh. The Equestrian Boots are unisex and are just the right kind of footwear for a nice winter walk.
Hanaya have released a lot of wonderful items for the Relay for Life Christmas Expo. The adorable Wintery Driftwood Birdbath is one of them and the Frozen Pond Bench in my back is another one. They are just lovely pieces of decoration to give your home that special winter feeling. The house I am standing in front of is the new release from Trompe Loeil for Collabor 88. The Frostbite Cottage comes in 4 different colors. I chose the white one and you can see a full shot of the house on the bottom of this post.

Retreat 2I decided to decorate the Frostbite Cottage in a more man-ly way this time. And again there are some fantastic furniture finds with men in mind at the Mens Dept. Like the ensemble from {af} called “Ralph’s Entryway” containing the drawers, the model sailboat, the brass lantern and the rope suspended gallery. I combined it with the new released Lounge Chair in corduroy from Trompe Loeil (tan), the Loveseat Corduroy (tan) also from Trompe Loeil (both for Collabor 88 also), the hunters living room table from World of Wood and the Winter Day Bed from WetCat.
The Winter Day Bed is the huntgift for the current running “Home for Christmas Hunt”. And while we are talking about hunts: the chalkboard in the back of the Winter Day Bed is also a huntgift. This time it is from evolve and it is their share for the “With Love Hunt”. The “Grannys Type Case” above the Lounge chair is an Advent Calendar gift from 22769 for the 13th December – so mark that date in your calendar, because it is lovely. The Antler Chandelier comes from “The Loft” and the rug is a new release from {af}

Retreat 3In my “sleeping corner” I used another huntitems: the Stockholm Bed from Vespertine is – again – a wonderful gift from the “With Love Hunt” The bedside table is from the Mens Dept. and is the item from PILOT. The room divider comes from LISP who really have some neat christmas decoration items. In my reading corner I used the Eames Lounge Chair from 2Xtreme and the hunters bookshelf from World of Woods. And these cute window decorations are from [CIRCA]. The festive pinecones are the current groupgift at the store. Also from [CIRCA] is the “Boho Winter” Snowflake Tree – and it is a part of their Gift for the Peace On Earth Hunt. The Primitive Timber Bench is also a part of a huntgift – this time from POST and for the “With Love Hunt”

Retreat 4I found this lovely butterfly table at L&K Prefabs. Not only it is wonderful made – but as you can see in the picture you can unfold both wings of it individually by mouseclick. It is the perfect piece of decoration and even for secondlife extremely practical. The decoration set is also from L&K Prefabs and just matches the overall look of my little winter retreat place. The Christmas Tree comes from BoatHouse. The little tree also was one of the Advent Calendar Gifts from the store. The Christmas Punch Side Table comes from Pestique. It rezzes by mouseclick either the punch (like shown here) or wine. It is the huntgift from the store for the Home For Christmas Hunt. And the frames on the floor again come from {af}.

Retreat 5And finally – like promised – the outside view of the lovely Frostbite Cottage from Trompe Loeil. I really must say that I love the size of this cottage – it is just not too big or too small – just the right size for bringing on some winterish feeling in your secondlife homes.

French Affair

French Affair 1

Around The World can be just around the corner – like in my case: France. Of course the Around The World Fair has an European section also and .evolve. – who, by the way, are also the organisers of the Around The World Fair – made some adorable unisex berets. So here am I, going all french with this little accessory. It shows also, that events are not only for girls. If you look close enough you definitely find in every place something to pimp up your manly wardrobe. All you need is imagination.

The leather pants I am wearing are also from Around The World. They come from 22769 ~ casual couture who have also some mens stuff in their African tent. I like the leather structure on those – it is quite crispy and even tho it is meant to be a raw and robust kind of leg wear it works also casual pretty well.

Spotlight on the jumpers I am showing you today: Reila Skins just released a new line of Autumn-ish jumpers called “Breath Of Autumn”. They are extremely casual and I love the argyle patterns a lot. There are many different styles available and you better check them all out. I personally love the green one in picture 1 and the red one shown here. The pullovers are mesh in male standard sizing and the folding is extremely natural.

The place I took my pictures in is a Dreamscene from Garden Of Dreams.  I blogged “The Village” already here, but the place is so versatile that it works in many different ways.

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.
