Storytelling

This picture was born out of the request from a creator if we could include avatars in the blog post using their decor — to see some form of emotion, tension or message that creates a story that others can identify with.  Most often than not I don’t like to pose myself in decor pictures, because I want the focus to be on the decor and not myself unless I am also showcasing fashion.

Though it was a reasonable request that I felt that I could manage and since I had some sexy pieces of lingerie that I needed to also blog the idea for me, myself and I came to fruition.  The decor is the club sofa set by N4RS available now at FaMESHed, which is made up of the brown sofa, decorative table beside it with the candle and rug.  The black lingerie is by V/. VoluptasVirtualis and it’s at the Crystal Heart Festival with the hair I’m wearing by No.Match at The Liaison Collaborative. The scarlet harness set is by The Forge and this is at the recently open new round of The Fantasy Collective.

Enjoy the rest of your day!

Yeah, it’s one of those days

Happy Friday!!  It’s a pretty extensive list of credits today so I will just sort of give some brief highlights.  The Arcade ends later tonight.. so it’s really the last chance to grab some fun items before they’re gone as some of the items are exclusives or you can always try finding them in marketplace or in-world locations where they have older gachas.

As the Arcade ends, a new round of The Gacha Guardians starts tomorrow or just under 15 hours to be exact. Lots of great items you’re going to find this round.  My guy here is wearing new releases by Belleza, which are at this round of Men Only Monthly.  Then I’m also showcasing decor by 22769, that you can find at this round of the newest event for men called Man Cave. The shelf with decor is at Shiny Shabby.

Hope it’s a great start to the fabulous weekend ahead!

Morning everyone! Today is a simple sort of post showcasing another home in the Builder’s Box subscription event.  This is a quarterly event with nothing but homes and skyboxes.  The pre-ordering for the next subscription will be July 15th so visit the website for more information, plus you can view the catalog of the homes in May.  The Daphne cottage is a one room home by Lagom, that has some lovely features like the wall in the top photo that cast some great light and shadows.

I’m also wearing the flower crown by Astralia, which is currently at Shiny Shabby. The crown comes with a HUD for changing the colors.  The cute dog next to me is from the Cheeky Chihuahuas gacha set by JIAN at the Arcade. This is the comfy blanket one and is a rare in the set.

Have a gorgeous day!

Hi Honey, I’m home

Happy Friday everyone. I hope it’s a good one for you so far. Mine is a bit slow going, as I’m feeling sort of lazy and now that I’ve had a fairly large breakfast I’m even more sluggish.  Even though I have quite a few things I need to work on in both worlds I’m taking the liberty to just take it easy today.

Yesterday, was also the anniversary of my dad’s passing and normally as I’ve done the last few years I usually dedicate a post to him.  Except this year I decided to forego it and keep my thoughts and memories to myself. I needed to get through on my own this time. I think that’s also why I’m feeling a bit slow going today as yesterday was an emotionally charged day not to mention an exhausting kind of week physically that I need to recharge the next couple of days.

I won’t keep you long, but will mention the few items that I am featuring in today’s post starting with the items from the travel preparations set by [Merak] at Tres Chic.  They’re scattered through the room, but the set includes the world map on the wall and below it on the side is the globe sitting on the storage box that’s also part of the set. The last two items are the flower bouquet laying on the chair and the travel planning items just below the cot.  The sofa and chairs and the pallet table including the fish decor and frame next to the map are by Dreamscapes Art Gallery.  You can find these items at the RFL Home & Garden Expo.  It’s one of two sets that are available.

Last items are by Q-Essentials, which are the industrial reclaiming hanging shelf and the wood cart that can be found at the main store.  Originally they were going to be at Draftsman, but for now this event has closed down.

Have a fabulous day or what’s left of it and hope you enjoyed all the pictures.

Como la flor

One of the fun things when doing decor scenes is being able to find items that blend and fit well together. I think of it almost like being a world traveler and finding odds and pieces that you like or perhaps it’s the oddly shaped piece that has been in the family for generations.  It can be quite challenging too, perhaps especially on days when you need to get something done and you don’t feel very creative or motivated.

I was tipping the scale on the not so motivated and feeling creative when I put this together and yet I’m pleased with the final result showcasing a mixture of fashion and home decor from all over the grid. Take a look at credits to get the full list of everything shown.

Few words again… though it’s a mixture of fashion and home decor today from ongoing events. Some that will end at the end of the month, so go grab them at bargain prices.
