Take me into your loving arms

valentines-day-pretty-in-pink-bedroomHappy Wednesday!  I hope you had a good weekend.  I’m back today with more Valentine’s Day decor and fashion.  To highlight some of the hunt gifts on the Love Me…Love Me Not hunt until 2/28/17, I created a sweet and soft pretty in pink bedroom.  One of my favorite gifts on the hunt is Dreamscapes Art Gallery Love Ladder.  The ladder corresponds perfectly with Dreamscapes new release Jessir Chair in stripes with english rose printed blanket and matching heart ottoman.  Another great companion from Dreamscapes is the Love Frames, a gift on the Stupid Cupid Hunt (2/3-2/28).  To me Valentine’s Day always means roses and StoraxTree has a lovely Vintage Plant Stand Rose Bush Pink on the Love Me…Love Me Not hunt.   Another nice gift is Love You Suitcase, a fun pink teddy bear suitcase from Sickly Sweet.  To complete the styling of the feminine boudoir, I used Floorplan Swan Lake Score Print above the bed and Bow Chair at the bureau (both part of January 2017 Collabor88).  What Next Amelie Blanket Box and Picture Shelves (both past FLF) round out the floral pastel palette.  Lastly, I added Adorably Strange Wares Roseta Wreath to the mirrors behind the table lamp available for 50% off at Perfect Ten (till 2/15).love-me-love-me-not-hunt-carries-lingerieAs for some fashion, today I have an adorable lingerie set from Carrie’s Lingerie.  The Love Me pink with heart balconette-style bra with matching thong is a free gift on the Love Me…Love Me Not hunt.  The Love Me set is designed for classic avi’s (non-mesh) with an omega applier, I haven’t succumbed the temptation of mesh bodies yet.  If you ever want to know my skin or hair, just im me, I’m happy to share (I’m really bad at listing everything I use for fashion post).  In the above picture I’m wearing Lamb Dissolved Girl hair (previous group gift, still available for free). blacklace-lingerie-lady-amalthea-group-giftAnother pretty in pink lingerie set is Blacklace Lady Almathea, the new group gift ($99L group fee).  Lady Almathea is a pink rose appliqué corset with panties that fits mesh and system avi’s. I’m sporting Exile Rush hair and Cog & Fleur Cloisonne Heart jewelry set, a gift on the Love Me…Love Me Not hunt.  Hope you enjoyed my soft and sweet Valentine’s Day blog post.  Happy early cupid day!

Merry & Bright!

ski-cabin-2016-side-viewHappy December!  I know it seems a bit strange to offer joyous holiday spirit 19 days or so into the month, but I was so preoccupied in sharing my older home design with you, I wasn’t sure if I would be able to carve out time to return to Second Life and style for the holidays.  Well, I just had too…the design bug bit me and with a few sleepless nights, I created a cute little ski chalet using What Next  Alpine Cabin.  Surprise, surprise…the cabin and most of the holiday decor from What Next is currently part of the 12 Days of Savings 50% off marketplace special (ends 12/25/16).  I think this is the first year What Next and other home designers are participating in the MP blowout.  Last year, I cleaned up on Truth Hair and Mandala Jewelry.

ski-cabin-2016-porch-front I love styling porches…the entryway needs to be inviting and cozy.  With multiple lanterns, benches and welcome mat, Santa is sure to stop here first.  I even left some hot cocoa and cookies on the ski lift for him!

ski-cabin-living-2016 ski-cabin-bar-2016ski-cabin-bar-closeupInside the one room cottage is a warm retreat with lots of seating, presents and stocking ready to be filled.  An overall Nordic Winter theme in red, cream and touches of green is felt throughout the room.  Lots of trees in every style are tucked in the corners and a sweet treat coffee bar displaying Brook Hill Living Finse Deer Tableware complete the Merry & Bright lodge!

Dashing through the snow!

Winter Cabin_2015In my last blog post, I focused on the interior of the EL Houses Forest Camping Cabin, today we draw our attention outside to some new holiday releases from my sponsors and more.  Up first, Tylar’s Treasures has created a number of winter exterior scenes with animations including couple cuddling, dancing and solo poses.  Shown below is the Pine Forest Seating with park bench, armchair, coffee table, snow dusted wooden forest and moose.   Also included in the Pine Forest styling is Dreamscapes Art Gallery cheeky Stick Reindeers and StoraxTree’s Holiday Delivery A (sled).  On the left side of the forest cabin is the adorable Tylar’s Treasures Bringing Home the Tree Alaskan Huskies dog-sled team which includes snowy trees (background) and stump with cardinal bird.Tylar's Treasure_Pine Forest SeatingTylar's Treasure_Bringing Home the TreeFinally, gracing the entrance is Finishing Touches Simple Elegance Holiday Swag, Wreath & Tree in Marble Urn from Perfect Ten event (50% off until 12/15/15).   Although 24Karat designed these items for interior use, the swag and urns are modifiable to fit your needs.  Dreamscapes Art Gallery Snowman with Bucket (b) greets visitors on this chilly evening as Bing Crosby sings Jingle Bells in the distance.
