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.

Mancave

mancave 1

Greetings. The Mens Dept entered the March round – and as always many brilliant designs and stuff to be found here for a snip. Not only clothing and accessory, but also furniture and decor. But let us start with my todays look: the hair comes from Uw.st and is called “Prince”. Uw.st are the first time in the Mens Dept and they even went with two different hairstyles. The asymmetric shirt I am wearing comes from the guys from 22769 and it is available in 4 different styles. The pants are from Razorblade Jacket. The great thing about those pants is that they come with a HUD – so you can change the color by one mouseclick. My shoes are from [ JP ] .dsg and are the Varial Sneakers – also controlled by HUD.

Like said above the Mens Dept. also holds a lot of furniture with men in mind. So if you want to decorate your mancave you should pay the Mens Dept. a visit. The skybox I shot my pictures today is from 22769 ~ [bauwerk] and it is their share for The Challenge TUDOR (I have written about The Challenge already here.). It is the perfect place for a single man in sl cause it has two rooms and I especially love the ceiling details and the warm colors in it.

In my bedroom I decided to use the wonderful quirky bed from L&K Prefabs. The bed “morning wood” (yes, you have read right) is the item from L&K Prefabs for above mentioned The Challenge and it is awesome. I really love the idea with the tree and the nightlight. The clothes rack comes from *bbqq* who also joined the Mens Dept for the first time with this item. The wall art again comes from the Gallery Gift Shop and is by Chiana Oh “To Another World”.

My Four Walls

My Four Walls 1

And I am back again (kinda) – have you missed me? OK – I am seriously pissed. As I already told you I moved flats in RL and the phonecompany messed up my internet contract big time. In fact the issue is still waiting to become solved (I am still hoping). Anyways – a buddy of mine was so kind to let me use his computer for this blog post, but of course it feels different when you are not sitting on your own machine. Anyways – his computer is really good, better then mine. I might steal it from him 😉
Todays main actor is the fantastic Olisipo Skybox from L&K Prefabs. It is available at the Designers Warehouse right now and you can get it for half of the regular price. And it is so worth it. The texturing is amazing and it has many neat gadgets like opening doors and a fireplace and many really interesting angles to decorate. My pictures surely do the skyhome no justice since – because of above mentioned RL issues – I was not able to decorate all of the rooms without my buddy strangeling me. But here are the facts: You have two huge bedrooms, a kitchen and a bathroom – and you have a hallway you can see in above picture in the background.
Tha Wall Art behind me is from the new round of the Gallery Gift Shop and comes from #7. The cube chair I am lounging in is from [bauwerk] who finally opened their doors to the public. And if you are a furniture addict like I am I strongly recommend the Four Walls Hunt – because literally everything you can see in the background – the chair, the sideboard and the frames – are from the hunt which is by far one of my most fav hunts in the grid.

List of stuff:
Chair (foreground): 22769 ~ [bauwerk] Cube Chair White Leather
Wall Art: #7 – Cubed Wall Glass (for the Gallery Gift Shop)
Chair (background): L&K Prefabs – Good Old Armchair (Four Walls Hunt)
Sideboard: PILOT – Miller Dresser (Four Walls Hunt)
Frames: End Of Daze – Canvass (part of the Four Walls Hunt Gift)

The painting in my back is from the Gallery Gift Shop and it is called “Our Beach in November” by Gabrielle Swindlehurst who is a master in highly atmospheric pictures. The furniture – except the rug which was an advent gift from [CIRCA] – comes from [bauwerk] and is a new release. On the left you can see the inbuild fireplace of the Olisipo Skybox. And the ceiling lights are the opening groupgift from *bbqq*.

My Four Walls 3

Just for clarification: I only use the telescope for watching the stars and NOT for watching my cute neighbour when he leaves the shower, ok? Anyways – the telescope is a brilliant prob from Hanaya called “Star Party” and it is the gift for the also currently running Cold Winter Nights Hunt. It comes of course with pose animations and is really very well done. The reading nook I am sitting in front of is from BRENO and like the modular shelf from Scarlet Creative it is again a gift for the Four Walls Hunt.
