Olivia by Amarelo Manga


The mice will play while the cat's away, but what happens when the cat comes home? They all get along and play some more, of course, this is Second Life. :-)

Here is another lovely coat from Amarelo Manga's Winter Collection. Olivia by name, it has classic, double breasted styling with buttons and an intriguing collar. The fun Olivia boots have a texture hud with bold colors. More winter to come, we still need our coats!

Son!a and Lavian&Co at J&A Expo!


Marvelous stuff waiting for you at the Jewelry & Accessories Expo! This is an event sponsored by Siren Productions. The theme this round is "In Cabaret, au Cabaret, to Cabaret." This evening I'm sharing creations by Son!a and LaVian&Co.

Son!a's Casino Hat is a collector necessity. It has a hud with multiple texture changes. The feathers flex to draw attention in a sexy way. The Cabaret necklace and earrings are gorgeous! They will pair well with elegant gowns both modern and historical. Son!a also created the Dom Whip, shown below. It too has a texture change hud. What a "nice" garter, that's all I'm gonna say, lol. Okay, I like whips. Did I say that? This must be an...interesting...cabaret! We need to hang out at this place.  ;)

BySage Petra Heels for Slink High feet are courtesy of LaVian&Co. I hear we bloggers made a stampede for them, and you will too! There are multiple add-ons for different texture changes. These are technically the "base" heels and even they come with so many color options you'll have to blink before you get to the end.

Indoors and Out at the RFL Home & Garden Expo


This post is a quick trip indoors and out to show you some offerings at Second Life's Relay for Life Home & Garden Expo 2016! There are some truly beautiful builds this year - make some time to stroll through the exhibits; there's only one more week to view all these creations in one place. 

The bedroom furnishings above by Dreamland Designs are so pretty I plan on leaving them out at our home for use! The bed, chaise and chair are all animated, PG or Adult. Crisp and clean, don't you just want to flop on them and take a cuddly nap? Or, ahem, other things.

{Sickly SWEET} brings us these delightful livingroom or den pieces. Impressive details on these furnishings, from the bound books on the shelving to the pretty vases, down to the coffee bucket - it has sit poses! Fun and attractive creating outside the box, that's what this is. The pieces can be integrated with other furnishings you have for very interesting decor.

These last two pics are items by Galland Homes. First, is an outdoor fireplace with character and style. Type "fire on" or "fire off" in local chat to produce crackling warmth for your gathering. It has stone extensions; place potted plants or other items on them to further decorate. I think the build itself appears to have "arms" welcoming you home!

And here's the Fire Pit by Galland Homes. It consists of a deck with corner railing and the stone pit itself. Same for this build - type "fire on" or "fire off" in local chat to start your event. Seating around it, perhaps some shrubbery. Or leave the space open for dancing around the pretty flames. Just be careful not to fall into it! :-)

Daisies and Pearls


So much gorgeousness, so little time to blog it all! Oh I wish I had a blogging clone. ;) Tameless has released this lovely hairstyle named Romy for the Hipster Fair! Romy has a side part flowing into long, luxurious tresses, pulled forward so it's perfect for showing off backless clothing styles. The huds supply endless color options.


Speaking of endless color options, Chop Zuey's Chandrani jewelry collection has a hud with it that is amazing for its texture changes. Gems, pearls and metal changes, oh my. I don't mean a few, there's a bunch! This jewelry collection will color coordinate with your changeable color and clothing moods, ANY time. Little tip - some long hairstyles like Romy will still work with earrings - try moving the earrings in edit. A pose stand is helpful here to keep you stationary during edits. Move the earrings, and even rotate a little inward. That would be a natural movement of dangling earrings anyway, as in the pic above. Now they can be seen. In the pic below, the back dangle is shown. One click of the hud changes all pieces.


I'piteme's owner, Toy Wiskee, works hard! She cranks out lovely items weekly. These pieces are I'piteme's Shannon Leather Vest and Innocent Ruffle Skirt. Toy includes huds with impressive color options, so again, it's like getting colors for any mood or inspiration! The vest fits include standard mesh sizes, Belleza (Freya, Isis and Venus), Maitreya, Slink (Hourglass and Physique), and TMP. The skirt fits include standard mesh sizes, and Belleza (Freya, Isis and Venus). I'm wearing my Maitreya Lara body, so opted for standard sizing. Where I would typically wear a Medium, the Small fits my shape better.


My fantastic heels are by Slipper Originals! These are Callie in Off-White, and they are gachas at the Hipster Fair. Any color you get is great, so if you play gachas lightly you won't leave unhappily with just one or two. Me, I have to have 'em all. Callie can be worn with Slink High or Maitreya feet.

Taking Swank to Casablanca


I've just arrived in Morocco, dressed to the nine's, from the Swank event in Second Life. I'm feeling oh-so-Casablanca this evening! My gorgeous dress and matching hat are by Purple Moon. The hat is fashionable, the dress cut in a sharp V, exposing one leg from hip to toe. I'll make a lovely entrance into Rick's Cafe Americain. I see the paparazzi is out in full force. How did they find me here??


My jewelry is by Luminesse, called Maharai Prisa. The attention to detail on this set is beautiful! This is another scintillating offering available at Swank. See more reasons to visit the event before this round is over on the 29th?

Flippant and Moondance at Swank


This round of Swank ends February 29th, so you still have a little time to go. I would encourage you to attend this round before it ends. I'll urge you to go next month as well, but I get ahead of myself. <g> The Swank event is a very well run event. The storefronts are easily identified; it's laid out in a non-confusing pattern; and the event staff is friendly and accommodating. I am personally impressed that the event doesn't seem to be subject to lag crush that we experience at so many events.

Included in this post are two event sponsors - Flippant and Moondance Boutique.


Moondance Boutique has some seriously gorgeous items. This particular jewelry collection is Elegant Aurora, and elegant indeed it is! Lighting captures the brilliant gem sparkles. The detail of each piece is exquisite. This set includes drop earrings as well as studs for some versatility with hairstyles. One ring/one bracelet, or both can be worn. There's more to be found at her event shop - go see!

The Flippant store has been on the grid for awhile, but has suddenly gained a sweeping popularity. That's because the store owner, Wistful MacTavish, has an eye for style and is keeping up with elegant and appealing clothing trends. Keep your eye on this store. Flippant is a new addition to the Swank event and we'll be seeing much more. I've had a peek at her offerings for March (why I was getting ahead of myself earlier), and simply wow!


Take some time this weekend to visit Swank prior to the event end on the 29th. You'll be pleased you did!

More RLF Home & Garden Lovelies


Take a few moments to click through the RFL Home & Garden Expo 2016 website. If you click the Shopping Guide tab, there are pics of the items for sale with pricing information. SL creators have gathered together at the Expo to raise real money to support Relay for Life efforts. A tremendous amount of the items are 100% donations! Their talent gathers us, the collective buyers, as we ALL support this wonderful cause.

The area I was assigned to cover is Hope 2. (Note: Kaerri is in Hope 8 - I blog Kaerri items through the We Love To Blog group.) I mention Hope 2 because you'll be able to see closer pics of the items above. These decor items are exquisite in detail and charm. Even the chamber pot is...the chamber pot! Who put the chamber pot on the table!! It has an animation, btw. I guess we can't have a chamber pot without the animation, right? On a more serious note, the Wounded Angels Companion Booklet by DECADES Gallery is humbling and inspiring. It's an interactive book filled with historical stories of women's struggle with breast cancer.

Such amazing things, and all at one Expo for us to explore.

The Rest of the Look


Yesterday I posted about the upcoming Jewelry & Accessories Expo that starts this weekend, and showed you an up-close pic of two items featured at the Expo. That post can be seen HERE. I also wanted to pan back and share with you the outfit I was wearing and the lovely build used!

This is the lovely Candy Corset by NoName and it can be found at the Eat Your Heart Out Fair. Sizing is standard mesh, and the hud includes color change with options for different sections. My super sexy tight pants are from Morea Style - Chris Bysantium. They are also available in standard mesh sizes.


Here are some hip boots by Slipper Originals being featured at The Hipster Fair! These boots named Delilah are wearable by Slink, Maitreya and TMP footsies. Go check out the great color options!


I have ZOZ to thank for my spectacular manicure. This is a selection on the Dsignature Hipster Solid hud, also available at The Hipster Fair! I realllllllllly like this polish!


This Chez Moi build is called Oh Deer Garden, and it's an Exclusive at the Relay for Life Home & Garden Expo 2016!


The Oh Deer Garden Bench is so sweet! The two birds are attached to the roof; Nanda couldn't shoo them away so she included them. This build is everything you'd expect from Chez Moi with animations, rezzables, and color change options. A puppy rezzes with one animation, but I'm not tellin' which one! You need to get your own. ;)

Let's Celebrate Some More!


Chez Moi Furnitures certainly knows how to bring couples together, with romantic animations and rezzables. This build is Let's Celebrate! Wooden Set. Humming "Tonight, I celebrate my love...for you."


Some grapes, dear?

I'm wearing Morea Style's Lolita Top in Cream. This beautiful lacy top is romantic in the best of ways. I paired with it Erratic's cerise panties for Maitreya that I picked up at last month's Uber. I'm sure they're available in the store now. Paid an arm and a leg for the fatpack - I can never pick just one, lol.

 

Some more pics with my sweetie, I love photographing him. And such tender poses! Thank you, Chez Moi.



My glorious jewelry is by Chop Zuey. This is the Lumineux Jewelry Collection and it's quite breathtaking. My lace top was too delicate for the matching brooch so I took a pic of it separately. Hmm, not only will the brooch look marvelous on a jacket, but what about a hat, omg! Or pin it on a purse to pull it in with your outfit.


Between perfectly placed kisses, I was smiling a lot while working on these pics!
