When the days are cold and the cards all fold…

I’m not sure why I have the song “Demons” by Imagine Dragons on my mind as I can’t recall listening to this song in the last days.  In any case I like the song and I thought to listen to it while I put this post together.

Today’s post is showing some more decor items from this current round of Cosmopolitan, which is the lace bed, mirror, table on the side of the bed, letters tied with a string and a candle from Duvet Day (gacha key) and the lamp from ChiC buildings.  The Pudgy Persians is a new gacha set from Jian at the Gacha Garden.  You can find the gacha key to this set here.

The rest of the decor is listed below, but I am using the whole “Show You the Way” gacha set by Haikei, available now at Kustom9.  I don’t blog for them, though I would love to, but find the gacha key here.

I have lots more decor to show in the coming days, as Builders Box and 6th Republic will be opening its door in the coming days, so lots of great decor heading our way.

Have a great one!

The small things that take up the most room in your heart

Just a quick post today to show you some recent new releases starting with the new hair style by eXxEsS called Sangria. It’s a long hair style that goes down your back and includes the “Breeze” technology that animates the hair and a texture HUD that has single tone hair colors.  The other item that I am featuring are the lace-up suede heels by Tetra, which were released at an event that has ended.  You can find them in different colors at the main store.

Have a great one!

I can’t talk any sense into her

When I finished processing my photo and leaned back in my chair to take a look at it to come up with a title all I could think of was what is she trying to convince her of.  Sort of lead me into reflection on how often we talk to ourselves inside our head. Well I know that I do when I’m wading through muddled thoughts and reasoning out things. Or sometimes arguing with that little voice in our heads that can lead you up or down depending on your own disposition.

Anyways, that’s a bit heavy for a Monday!  Moving on to something much lighter like pointing you to credits to see some of the fashion and decor that I am showcasing today from the Tres Chic Event and other creators that I have the honor of blogging for.

Have a great day!

Happy Saturday! The credits were way longer than I thought, even with having much of the information it still takes time to sort it out and insert all the links and everything else that goes along with making a blog post.  Though I’m in a cheerful good mood today so let me share what I’m showing today.

I’ll start with what I’m wearing.  The Valery Skin is a new release by Insol and it’s available at Tres Chic.  I wasn’t familiar with this skin creator, so it was nice to try it out and was rather pleased with the skin tones and easy to use applier system. I’m wearing the tan version of the skin, but you can find an additional five tones (peach, miilk, honey, creme and cinnamon) as well.

The pulled back hairstyle called Alanis is by Opale and available in 9 different color sets also at Tres Chic. The lovely necklace is available in a black, silver or gold pack.  The cute dress with open shoulders is by Kaithleen’s and you’ll find it in a range of colors, at least 15 if not more.  Then I’m wearing one of the new releases by Empire, which are the Tithonia that are available at this round of Kustom9.  As always with Empire shoes, you get a 12-color hud that gives you quite a few options.  My last picture gives you a close up of the necklace and hair.

009ps

The last items being showcased are all the decor items. The first is the rustic Whimsical Light set by [Merak], available at Shiny Shabby.  The candle in the vintage lamp light can be turned on and off. The painted tree comes in two versions, showing the green base, the other not show is silver. The rustic vase also in two versions, shown is green base as well and the other not shown is red. They can all be purchased separately or in a discounted pack.

I’m showing rugs from Bee Designs, and it’s part of their Haven Tree House Gacha out now at Shiny Shabby.  Other items from this same creator are items from their Bella Gacha set at Lost & Found. The two frames above the bed, the suitcases on the bed and decor boxes on the chair.  The small golden table that holds the teal lamp is by I[BDKX]I-//- and is available at On9, which is open for another couple or so days. The lounge type chair is by Sources and at Cosmopolitan.  You can change the texture of both the chair and the blanket.

That’s all for today. It’s time for me to grab some lunch before I start on getting this posted to Flickr.

A change is gonna come

014ps2

I felt so much better today even if I had a splitting headache this afternoon that sort of put a kink in that feeling better.  In any case, hopefully I am on the mend and back to my self soon enough.

Today I am showcasing a few items from Tres Chic, starting with the sweater by Rinka. Even though I’m using with a skirt, it’s also great for casual wear or lazying around the house type of wear so it’s calling my name. The bracelets are by AvaWay and come with a color HUD to choose from five different metal options.  The last item being featured is a new shoe release by N-core,  which are fabulous heels with spikes.  Surely they will come in handy if you need to defend yourself, but lets hope not.

Happy Saturday!

I don’t have so much time this morning as I’m on my way out for a few hours to get some personal things done, but I really wanted to post before I left.  I’ll be very brief and leave you with credits for now.

First, I’m really excited that I’m going to be blogging for Anhelo and look forward to showing some of their new releases in the future. I’ll give a little more of an introduction later in case you’re not familiar with them.  I’m also showing a new gacha of the love pugs by JIAN for The Gacha Garden.  I put the creators notes below credits for all the pugs and you can find the key here.  New thigh boots by Empire that can be found at Kustom9 and new hair style by eXxEsS at their main store. The dress is at Tres Chic by KC and rush because the event is about to end.

I hope in my rush I didn’t have any typos.. Thanks everyone!

━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━

Here are some helpful tips on how to use each pug in the Love Pugs set..

━━━━━━━━━━━━ ★ RARES★ ━━━━━━━━━━━━

All rares in this set texture change both the pup between the four coat colors and have accessory texture options as well!

━ 1. Free Kisses
This is a rezzed item with an animation for the pug and an avatar when it is sat on.
When not seated, the owner can also change the pug’s coat texture.

To get licked, right click and “sit” on the object.
Your AV will cycle through the animation and automatically be unseated.

━ 2. Sleepy Treater
This is a decorative rezzed mesh item.
Click on it to get a resize and texture change menu for the pug and blanket.
You can also turn on or off the pug’s animation cycle.

━ 3. Pug Wagon
This is a worn avatar accessory that will animate your avatar’s arm to hold it.
You can also click on the wagon to get texture menus for both pugs and the wagon, turn on or off the animations of the pugs and resize it.
━━━━━━━━━━ ◐ COMMONS ◑ ━━━━━━━━━━

━ Companion Pugs (8, 9, 10, 11)
These are worn animated avatar accessories.
Right click them in your inventory and choose “Add.”
If for some reason they get added to the wrong attachment point, you will want to right click on them and choose “Attach to” and then “Avatar Center”.
You will need to reposition them to match where your avatar’s feet touch the floor.
These will walk, run, and idle through various animations along with your avatar.

━ Wanderer Pugs (12, 13, 14, 15)
These pugs are meant to be rezzed to let run around!
Drop them out on the ground and click them to begin. You will get options for radius, wander and sound.
Sound turns your pug’s barking on or off.
Radius sets the distance in which you pup can wander from the point where you turn it ‘on’.
Wander turns your animals ‘on’ and lets it run around!
Turning off wander on your animals should return it to its original starting position.

━ Held Pug (16, 17, 18, 19)
These are worn animated avatar accessories that will override your arm animation.
They default to your right arm, but if you attach them to your left fore arm they will automatically swap to animate that arm instead and vice versa. You may need to reposition your pug in your arm if you swap arms.
You can click on your pug to get a menu for textures for the flower, resizing and to turn animations on or off.

 

French Country Living

aphrodite-shops-014223

Heart Homes has put together a nice combination of kitchen and dining room set that is designed in the style of luxurious French Country.  It’s mesh with low prims and can choose a kitchen that is either PG and family or adult version. It has lots of scenes with rezzable props and quality animations.  It’s an interactive kitchen so you will be able to cook meals from its raw state to done in minutes. There are animations that include making pizza or preparing hot dogs together as a family and much more.

The kitchen, sink and stools are all color changeable with a click of certain parts mentioned in instructions.  I encourage you to go visit their showroom to take a look.

Apart from a few older decor items that I used and some hanging mesh plants, curtains as well as the house I used, everything is from Heart Homes.
