Spring At Last!

tylar-treasures-welcome-spring-2017Spring has come to Second Life, or at least on my sim.  I logged in the other day and to my surprise the landlord had changed the winter forest scene to springtime.  It look a little odd with my snowy cabins and patches of ice against the fresh earth.  I’m really excited that I can finally use the Brook Hill Living Chilmark House I got last year, so it will take a moment for me to change the landscaping.  In the meantime, I styled a springtime garden setting using Tylar’s Treasures   Aurora in Spring and Watercolor Garden with Waterfall offered for 50% off at Perfect Ten Event (until 3/15/17).  The Aurora Arbor has a small fence to both side, trees, moss, and a stump with a bunny.  The poses include couple dances and cuddle with texture change pillows.  The Watercolor Garden has four small rocks with wildflower and fern bordering the pond.  I also included Bluebird Garden fence, the gift for the Into the Blue Hunt (3/1-3/29).  Other decor items are KeKe Refurbished Spring Drawers and Sari Sari Repurposed Cart from the February 2017 Deco(c)rate box.  Lastly, Gloria is wearing the Saffron Necklace (#6), Loretta Dress (#4) & Sandals (#5), gifts from Purple Moon Cherries on Top Hunt 6 (ending 2/28/17).  I love this hunt, I look forward to it every year, hopefully I can take some snaps of the other gifts.  Below is the hunt information.  Have a great evening!

There are 10 hidden cherry cakes around the ground level of Purple Moon store and one at WetCat store (pose I’m using).

Kiss from a rose

love-me-love-me-not-hunt-ka-designsHello, I’m back.  It’s been a few weeks since my last blog post.  Real life kidnapped me with massive amounts of work, some friend drama and health issues.  Hope you had a nice Valentine’s Day and are looking forward to spring.  Before February ends, I wanted to spotlight another hunt gift from the Love Me…Love Me Not Hunt closing 2/28/17.  Today, Glory’s modeling K&A Designs Lila Dress, a sexy red and black sweetheart strapless little number perfect for date night (mesh and standard sizing)!  And, speaking of date night, the hunt gift includes a matching red shirt for your guy (for standard avi’s).  I paired the Lila Dress with some past Fifty Linden Friday items from Maxi Gossamer Mix & Match Pearls and Wasabi Pills Olivia side ponytail.  Finally, I found the most adorable pair of mesh compatible shoes from Hilly Haalan, the Valentine’s Day Vista Red Heels with white flower detail for free!  There are a couple of other outfits and goodies from the Love Me…Love Me Not hunt I want to showcase before the hunt is over, so stay tuned! 32086402820_6299d91600_k

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!

Make You Feel My Love

Happy February!  My cousin Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow on Thursday and forecasted six more weeks of Winter.  How is Phil my cousin you ask?  Well, I’m born on groundhog day and I figure any dude that only appears once a year and sleeps the rest is a kindred spirit… (now you know why styling bedrooms is my fav).  This birthday was very different from any other because my mom was not feeling well enough to partake and I went out to dinner with a dear girlfriend. We had a wonderful time and I got to laugh, act silly and just relax for a moment.  As we painted the town red, Valentine’s Day theme permeated the air.  With 10 days till cupid’s arrow hits you, I have a number of events, gifts and freebies to highlight in today’s blog.valentines-day-red-purple-passionFirst up, the Perfect Ten event runs from 2/1/17-2/15/17 and I’m so happy to be back blogging for The Cookie Jar merchants.  It’s been an ongoing partnership since 2014 and as always the two-week event spotlights 10 home & garden designers with exclusive items half price or less. Above, I used HJM Designs Heart Decor Hanger on the windows, Adorably Strange Wares Flora Amour Ladder Decor & Hipster Celebration Table (3 tier cake on milk can), and Lunar Seasonal Designs Heart Jar of Lights & Shabby Chic Wooden Heart Marquee Sign.  The jar of hearts is menu driven with the option to change the texture of the jar, ribbon, color of lights/hearts and glow level.  The wooden heart marquee is super cool with the ability to change the text to spell up to three lines 8 letters each and change the color of everything.love-me-love-me-not-huntI also used HJM Designs Love Heart Decoration (large red heart with rose on right wall), Tool Shed Tubey Heart Decor on windows and Park Place Home Decor The Two of Us purple floor rug and pillows, all items on the Love Me…Love Me Not hunt until 2/28/17.  To finish off the styling, I used Sway’s Ahara Wicker Chairs and Button Floor Lamps (past FLF), Half Deer Fairylight Balloons and What Next Amelie Tall Chest of Drawers, both Fifty Linden Friday items for 2/3.  Lastly, you can’t celebrate Valentine’s Day without chocolate; StoraxTree has a nice red heart box for free on the Where’s Cupid Hunt available until 2/14/17.love-me-love-me-not-hunt-go-frock-yourself-nailsAnd ladies, while shopping for Valentine’s Day decor, don’t forget to style a little something for you too!  Glory’s looking a bit sexy this morning wearing Wicked Jennifer Blouse with Bra, Georg Bellic Design Loves me Skirt Black Big Hearts {both top and skirt fit classic and mesh avi’s} and Go Frock Yourself Heart Balloon Slink nails, all on the Love Me…Love Me Not Hunt (till 2/18).  Her hair is Clawtooth Up and Away and Reign Pattern Pumps for mesh appliers (both 2/3 FLF).  Last but not least, Chop Zuey is offering the Love Knot set for the Fabulously Free in SL group (free to join), so now you’re ready for Amore!
