The Colors of Spring

Hey there!  So as I think I’ve mentioned in a past post I’ve been working on trying to improve my picture taking skills.  One of the things that was pointed out to me is that my windlights all seem to look the same, they aren’t, but look that way.  So, I went out of my comfort zone a bit and played around with a more colorful lighting and really love how this turned out.  Another Home & Garden post packed full of wonderful goodies from some of my favorite stores; Fetch, Alouette, [Keke], What Next just to name a few.  For a larger view just click on the picture!

My Boho Gazebo

Spring arrived back on my land a bit over a month ago and even though Etherian and I kept the same Farmhouse I wanted to make some changes outside.  That’s where the Toscana Gazebo from What Next comes in, once I saw that and Jake’s Messy Garden Sofa from Cheeky Pea I knew I had something.  The gazebo comes in three versions, and is texture change, as is the wood and pillows on the sofa.  It took me some time to put together since I was making it not just for a blog but for my land, when I thought it was just the way I wanted it I figured why not blog it!  I filled it with goodies from all over that are new and also some of my older finds I had in my inventory. I wasn’t sure exactly how to do the pictures but settled on a collage.  If this pic isn’t large enough for detail you can click on it to make it bigger, if it’s still too small head over to my Flickr page to check it out.flickr look 662

Morning Start

I’m so excited to show you this new kitchen from Dysfunctional Designs!  It’s so small and cute and comes with texture change on everything, including the stove. Two things it does not have are animations or a fridge, but you can easily add the fridge and if you are like me and don’t really use kitchen animations it’s fantastic.  When you consider that it’s very low prim and includes all the decor except for what I have listed here it’s even better! I got most of my additional decor from Tres Blah that I picked up at The Arcade, along with finds I made from MMG’s, Second Spaces, and some kitchen art work from new-to-me store Victoria’s Little Secrets.

Merry Christmas 2014!

Christmas is coming and I for one can hardly wait!  Can’t wait for my kiddo to get up Christmas morning and see all her presents and get to see her so happy.  The fella and I wanted to do something for the holiday and this new pose from Repose was perfect. I do want to note that we adjusted our heads with the Animare hud so that his head was not stuck in my head lol.  We threw on our sweaters from Shai and Santa hats from Argrace and took a snap in front of our Christmas tree.

Snowball Fight!

flickr look 623So many great couples poses to show you today; Two are from Infiniti Poses and one is from Sari-Sari.  The Snowball Fight is a male/female pose while Snowball Fight V2 is actually a female/female pose.  I figure it doesn’t matter much since the poses can be edited to fit any size pretty easily and since snowballs are attached to the poses you can edit those as well.  The Sari-Sari pose called Caught You is the rare in their Snow Love collection gacha at the lastest round of The Liaison Collaborative.  I absolutely adore the particles of snow on this pose that make it look just like a snowball being broken apart.

flickr look 623-2Etherian was a great sport helping me get these poses today.  Most of my look can be found from Tres Blah over at the newest Collabor88 while his look can be found at The Mens Dept, Winter Trend and The Arcade.  I also want to make note that I did these pics on the beautiful Love Ship sim owned by CrazyChef Resident who was nice enough to open his sim up to the public to enjoy for Winter.

Grungy Winter

I headed over to the Winter Trend event the other day and came across this fantastic outfit from Legal Insanity.  The sweatshirt comes with a hud that lets you change the writing  on it or just have it plain.  It also includes a belt that says star but I bought one that says bitch because well it’s more fitting.  New for the Winter Trend are the fabulous Bree Warmer Grunge Jeans that have the leg warmers attached and includes a hud that lets you change textures.  I’m also wearing the new hair from Clawtooth that you can pick up over at the December Arcade.
