My photo is a little darker than I intended, but sometimes lighting isn’t your friend. Though I think you can still see most everything.  I’m featuring some of the items from Mesh India’s decor gacha at Cosmopolitan.  The details on land impact for each item is listed below.

Also being shown is the velvet chaise by [Circa], available now at the main store and the star decor is part of their retro gacha set at Oh My Gacha. The last items being shown are decor pieces from the Amour a Paris gacha by {Your Dreams} at Tres Chic.

Until next time.

Happy Sunday! My post is very short as I don’t have much time before I have to finish getting ready to leave town until Tuesday.  I will not be posting until my return as I am not taking a laptop for the short duration.

All the details are below, but showing all amazing things from designers/creators and events that I participate in.  The newest event being featured today is Tres Chic, which opens up two days from now on 17th January.

Have a great rest of Sunday and see you sometime Wednesday!

PS — check out my latest addition to my family — is he not adorable?  I haven’t named him yet, as I’m waiting for a name to gradually come to me.

Nostalgia

circa-001

This year has been a bit busier than what I remember it being previous years. I know in large it’s due to taking on more blogging commitments and I recognize that simply from the fact that I have yet to open a quarter of my arcade items that were purchased and not given to me as a blogger package.  I really have no problem with it. If I didn’t enjoy this I simply wouldn’t do it.

I also have not had time to unpack some of the advent or hunt gifts I find as I am always on the lookout for home and garden decor.  I find hunts are sometimes one of the best sources for me finding more one of a kind items or the unusual or even home decor stores I wasn’t aware of.

005

So last night I decorated a whole cottage with a bunch of Christmas decor mostly from decor items received from hunts, advent and group gifts and maybe a few other pieces bought or given through a blogger pack.  It gave me a feeling of nostalgia and a small dose of guilt of not doing it sooner.

Today I’m showcasing a new hair style by Tukinowaguma that’s available at Tres Chic. It’s a sweet and stylish updo that’s perfect for those holiday parties as is the Antonina dress by Fame Femme, that has a fun bow going down the open back that adds a little sexiness to the dress.  Both of these items can be found in different colors at the event.

The decor being featured is by [CIRCA], which are items in their Holiday Advent Tree. There is a group that you need to join, it’s the [CIRCA] Living – Christmas Advents (in-world) and it’s free to new members.  Each day items have been added to the squares on the wall tree near the inside entrance. Items do cost from $1 – $75 lindens and some even at $0 lindens.  Unfortunately, I didn’t get these items until a couple of days ago, so it’s a bit of a short notice and hopefully she will leave them out a bit longer as the group will be closing the Eve of Dec. 24th.  The wall strip art in red plaid is  available currently at the Midwinter Fair.

Edited: A note on the advent for [CIRCA].  The creator will be opening the advent for days 8-24 on December 24th, so you will still have time to grab anything you like from those days.

Have a fabulous Wednesday Thursday!

Happy Halloween

021ps

It’s like ten minutes before it strikes midnight and officially the next day and it’s Halloween.  I wanted to get this post in earlier just in case you wanted some last minute party and decor goods, then I’m featuring some cake, drinks and cupcake goodies by Una. These are gacha items and available at Shiny Shabby.

The decor is by Dreamscapes Art Gallery. The chairs, picture and candelabra are items for the Black Widow 2 Hunt that started today. The boo ladder is this month’s group gift, which can be joined for a relatively small fee of $50.  The dog is so cute, and it’s another common dog in the Hallow-Inu gacha set by JIAN at The Epiphany.

I’m also featuring items that I am wearing, starting with the skirt by Reverie, which is at Uber.  The military/chic skirt comes in 8 colors, plus 2 bonus colors on the fatpack and 1 on the smaller packs. The boots that I am wearing are by Empire, and they are also at Uber’s.  They are 100% original mesh, with 20 colors included and you can change parts individually.  It’s fitted mesh for the Belleza Freya, Belleza Venus, Belleza Isis, Slink Hourglass, Slink Physique, Maitreya, The Mesh Project and also Slink Male.

The last item being featured is the pose that I am using.  I’ve been a big fan of this store for a while as they make some cute poses for you and a little one.  The set I am using this #18 poseis called Katya.  I was able to fix it so that I could lean against the chair and only had to make a slight modification to raise my left knee/foot up. Go check out the store to find some awesome poses at some great prices.

If you are into doing the whole trick or treating, be safe!
