~ “Feels Like Home” as done by Randy Newman

Feels Like Home

I recently redecorated a part of my home to enjoy some of the fantastic furniture and décor I was seeing at recent events. Kalia Firelyte’s great rug and fireplace from ROMP provide the center of the grouping with chairs from ValiantCo featured at Collabor88 and Fameshed. Sway Dench has made drawers and rugs for this month’s colorful theme at The Liaison Collaborative. Gachas from Kunst  Himmel and Anaisterpellie and DanielEstro provided fine accessories. I want to note that Anaisterpellie/DanielEstro’s pieces are usually based on a white palette BUT because they leave them mod, a person can recolor, retexture or just rip pieces apart as they like to decorate (please note the wreath on the wall came off one of their pieces and I recolored elements of their other work). Thank you for letting me mod!

To relax at home I am wearing a romantic gown from Aikea Reiko that comes in many luscious colors (as I don’t think Aikea sees any problem with giving you the rainbow and then some). As always, the textures are rich and beautiful with lush shades and ombres. Caelan Hancroft’s choker/collar from ROMP (which includes texture change for the metals and the center stone) is a lovely piece of jewelry or, if needed, open collar for other kinds of play.

Feels Like Home

My beautiful face is Gael Streeter and ElleEtGance’s mesh head collaboration (which I will call the “GA:EG Adriana Mesh Head” because that’s the brand name, regardless that it is hard to search and clumsy to type). With a very user-friendly HUD that was plug n play (which I will show in a subsequent blog post), layers for makeup, and most important to me, Omega compatibility, I think I am going to find myself wearing this head more and more. It does include expressions which, I find, are not as versatile as the Logo or LeLutka heads but as expressive as the Catwa head. I wish the makeups had the translucency control that other heads have. However, I found they went on lickety split, and I didn’t have the kind of rezzing issues I often have with the Catwa head.

Most importantly, the face is aesthetically pleasing to me. The cheekbones are a bit high but having adjusted my head length up and down and front to back, I was able to find a look that was pleasing. I did not have to mess with my mesh eyes very much as I do with Catwa and even Logo (thank you, thank you) and I found I could wear this skin from Sawsan Secretspy without problems when I wore the Omega converter. The head fit my Maitreya body to a T. It seems the creators have thought of almost everything one will need but I will keep working with it and tell you more.

To Seduce

To Seduce

It is not enough to conquer; one must learn to seduce. ~ Voltaire

To Seduce

I am guessing that Voltaire was suggesting in his quote something more about winning the hearts and minds of the populace but I think the suggested double meaning has great play for this set of photos, which I took at Corruption. (Thank you again for selling group membership to allow rezzing.)

To Seduce

Mariska Simon’s new lingerie is based on appliers, and Mariska has done a wonderful job of lining up seams and making the translation of image to seduction magic. I have tried on several lingerie appliers that have bad seams or simply don’t wow me, but Mariska’s is top notch from the straps to garter straps. And she attends to all the details, which is part of any good seduction, including the styling. The balconette bra barely gives a glimpse of the nipples and has an intriguing lace racer back. Platform show girl shoes from Senzati0n Domenitzo, which she is featuring at On9, and Maxi Gossamer’s dreamy drop of pearls and starburst earrings and ring for Collabor88 complete my look.

To Seduce

Sawsan Secretspy has recently release a slew of new skins for events and this lovely look is her featured item for Black Dot. It’s simply a Catwa applier without makeups included, but I took advantage of the lipstick colors Catwa includes in the HUD to tint up my lips. (The liner comes with the skin.) Bubbles Clawtooth’s lovely long locks for Collabor88 finishes my look with their elegant volume and her gorgeous textures.

Years fly by, but the heart stays in the same place. ~ Harlan Coben

Same Place

I took a stroll around the charming residential neighborhoods of Hesperia of Templemore and enjoyed the brisk air and sunshine on the sim (despite no scripts on the sim–grr). A soft slouchy sweater from Hilly Haalan with a gorgeous knit lace motif (I have knit something like this) with a big scarf and sexy leather mini make an outfit that’s stroll-worthy. Hilly includes a HUD that allows 12 colors on texture for the scarf, 10 for the fringe, 12 for the sweater and as a bonus, a 12 color-choice skirt, all in one. Thigh-high boots from Beanster Potato complete my ensemble.

Same Place

Monyka Benelli has come out with darling earring sets at The Dressing Room: separate small earrings that you can position into place to complete a look. I used four earrings on my ears and with a little painstaking placement, achieved a multiple piercing look I can live with. Kuranosuke Kamachi has put this lush, almost vintage pageboy in the main store, and Sawsan Secretspy has created another gorgeous applier for the Catwa mesh head. It comes with several eye make ups and lipsticks and suits the Annie head perfectly.

Resolved

I have no resolutions to share with you today. Get my holiday decorations cleaned up, start working on eating healthier after a tasty holiday (I think I made about 500 cookies all by myself), knit up all the yarn I bought during sales, make it through the winter—those are pretty much my ideas for this after holiday time. Today is the last day of FROST and I had to sneak in one last peek with this dress from Cruella Pennell, which I really liked. With a belted waist and a wraparound style, it’s a gorgeous coat dress that would do well for a girl-next-door look like this or something more gothic. With Senzati0n Domenitzo’s boots and a pretty branched necklace from Aikea Rieko, it’s a lovely look for exploring sims.

Resolved

Sawsan Secretspy’s lovely applier for the Catwa heads is her featured skin at the Makeover Room and it’s a lovely look for the Catwa Jessica head. The eyeliner and pale pink lipstick are built into the skin so I am sure you could apply other makeups but I forewent any for this fresh, natural look. My hair is Mina Nakamura’s style for the new Fameshed, a lovely pulled-back look with bangs.

I’ll give it to someone special.

Last Christmas–KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar, Day 14

The jingle jangle of bells in this old Christmas song from my adolescence always reminds me of snow. Gotta love George Michael (and his hair—wow). So I went to snowy Loch Noble to shoot photos of my outfit, which is sort of an awesome look considering the pieces are priced so inexpensively. Well, first there is the jacket which is free in the KittyCats & Friends Advent Calendar. Sands Leavitt has generously offering this stunning red leather jacket with materials as his little gift to all the calendar clickers, and it comes in several sizes to fit different mesh bodies. Solange Cerveau is offering this itty bitty mini, made to fit several mesh bodies (and it does so on my Maitreya body like skin—not a single clip) for the Winter Gacha Festival. The chain and ornaments around the waist are the “rare” so you can push linden into that machine and always end up with a great prize because the skirt is so great! (And since it’s gacha, giftable. Get one for all your friends!) My awesome hat is Aleida Rhode’s gacha for the Gacha Garden at the Liaison Collaborative. The fur textures are so gorgeous and she has a big decorative safety pin. My long tall boots from Allie Munro are one of her featured pieces for FROST, which has opened. I love their shape and the textures and they are rock bottom priced!

Last Christmas–KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar, Day 14

Sawsan Secretspy released this lovely skin with several makeups at the Frozzen Fair. The lips are mostly pastel and the makeups a bit smokier, so the look is very sexy when you combine them together. My hair is naminaeko’s exclusive for Hairology. It comes with or without streaks and in a bunch of fantastic colors as well as “naturals.” I especially liked her “glitter” textures. The hair is low profile so it fit perfectly with a little resizing of Aleida’s hat and the textures looked fabulous.

Bringing Home the Tree--KittyCatS & Friends Advent Calendar, Day 11

Loch Noble just reopened their sim and a fresh coat of snow has fallen with more coming down. It’s coated the whole beautiful village with a white blanket and made it perfectly charming and wintery. I took a late morning run over to check out the storefronts and get my tree. (OK, it’s the sim “tree on a car” but work with me here…) I felt very seasonal in Aryiana Novelli’s supposedly ugly sweater for Christmas on 34th Street, though I think it’s absolutely charming with the clever use of multiple translucent layers to make it look soft. Chantal Mynx’s cowl for FROST provides colorful warmth, as do Izzie Button’s tights for TLC. And they matched my boots from Hera Aviatik, which are also for FROST. Pretty earrings from AvaGardner Kungler for this month’s On9 (which I downsized quite a bit) and a berry cluster from Abraxxa Anatine make the whole look seasonal and pretty.

Thank goodness for Mavi Beck’s darling holiday poses for TLC because they worked great for this set of photos. I am wearing Sawsan Secretspy’s new skin for Winter Trend on the Catwa Jessica head and I added shadows from Alaska Metropolitan that she is offering at a rock bottom price at Anybody. I have fallen in love with Constance Daehlie’s eyes for Winter Trend (which you will see over and over for the next few weeks). She offers system and mesh eyes. And the final and most glorious part of my look is Queue Marlowe’s gift for the KittyCats & Friends Advent Calendar for today—an amazing topknot that includes three different HUDs for your wearing pleasure.

Who doesn’t like the idea of a Victorian Christmas? A lady waiting for her carriage outside her home, perhaps for a party or clandestine visit to her lover. Luna Barak is offering this gorgeous winter mesh outfit, which includes the draping sleeves, the hair tucked under the hood, and the lovely pattern, at Fair Play, with at least part of the cost benefitting Relay for Life. Luna has always been terrifically generous with her work for that particular charity—she had participated in Fashion for Life when I ran it—and now she is giving this, which includes a great HUD to change the colors of the hair and also change the color of the coat (red, green or white). It’s an absolutely lovely piece and I posed with Olaenka Chesnokov’s lamp post, which includes eight poses and is 100% original mesh from Olaenka’s own self. Since it’s for Christmas on 34th Street, it’s giftable to someone you love or perfect for your own holiday snapshots. (Note, I did change one of the poses using the Avimote Posemaker in order to better show off the coat. Artistic license and all that.)

It *is* the season for giving and today has two gifts from the KittyCats & Friends Advent Calendar. First, Sawsan Secretspy is offering this exquisite lady’s skin as her gift in the calendar. It comes with and without cleavage option and includes this very neutral makeup palette so you can wear it with other makeups. It’s for system bodies, and that is just fine because anyone can wear it then. Julia Merosi, who has gone from creator to KittyCatS lover, made this darling seasonal clutch with berries and beads and a tinsel trimming. Remember: if you miss getting to the Calendar any day, you can get the previous day’s gifts so don’t worry. Though it’s one per avatar, there is ample opportunity to fill your inventory with goodness.

I’m going the graphic route today with more photos than words because I wanted to feature a few of the great hairs from this month’s Hairology, and I knew I wouldn’t get to all of them otherwise. I have donned Paradox Messmer’s mesh dress from Thrift Shop, half off, in its various colorways and have clicked away at Maxi Gossamer’s great Collabor88 necklace to show the many colors you can use on this one piece of jewelry.

I love the variety of hair at Hairology, from Nita Bracken’s simple style to Casandra Rain’s gorgeous wedge (check out the back—brilliant) and I employed color on Tabata Jewell’s rock n roll style and on Elikapeka Tiramisu’s great side ponytail. An elegant girl will go with Evadne Quintessa’s look—it’s honest and easy.

My silver girl took a walk around the charming, albeit small, neighborhood around The Sable Club to take photos yesterday. I had discovered that the Renaissance woman, Thalia Heckroth, had opened a store on Marketplace with some beautiful mesh pieces, and I was absolutely thrilled to find this beautiful mesh dress, made of fitted mesh, among her offerings. Thalia, who has excelled at everything she has done in SL, from owning an RP sim to dabbling in real estate to making machinima and doing photography is now a designer and brings her sophisticated aesthetic and approach to her pieces. She has just started—there are only five pieces available right now, but each is classic couture, well rigged and beautifully textured. I paired with this outfit the set Mea Carnell is selling at On9 this month, a lovely grouping of necklace, bracelet and ring, and I am sporting Glamistry’s newest, t-strap platform sandals.

101515_001

Catwa Clip’s mesh head, Jessica, has sent a flurry of designers making appliers, and Sawsan Secretspy, who is the goddess of quick-make appliers, has made a lovely set with several eye makeup and lipstick choices. (And don’t let me diminish what Sawsan does by saying she’s quick. The wide variety of systems and mesh shapes for the bodies and heads is enough to make any designer go nuts—she handles it all seemingly without effort.) Her skin is delicate and graceful on this head—very classic, especially with the beautifully drawn brows. Carina Larsen has recently released a ton of hair styles for women and one for men and this up-do is in keeping with her style—simple, beautiful and feminine.

So Good

So Good

Ooh, you make it so good
Baby, somethin’ about you

~ “So Good” by Beat Connection

So Good

I took a trip over to Elysion to get a cup of coffee and listen to the debates on CNN. While I nervously sip my coffee, I am trying to calm myself by breathing in the calming atmosphere on the sim and enjoy the music on the stream. I assembled a cute look from recent events. Start with Sash Arabello’s stop for the Dressing Room Fusion, a great find available in three colors at a rock bottom price. Then my plaid leggings from Flutter Memel are one of many colors and patterns she has Collabor88. Sexy platform boots from Senzati0n Domenitzo give some sex appeal to the look while applier fingerless knit gloves from Alaska Metropolitan at Anybody are a very inexpensive accessory.

So Good

I topped one of Thora Charron’s newest hairs with Aleida Rhode’s gift for gentlemen at her sim. It includes a HUD that allows one of four plaid patterns across two parts of the hat for mix and match and it’s resizable so not just girls can wear it. A sexy choker from Kreao Kujisawa for Romp includes Open Collar scripts but has a sort of costume jewelry appeal that makes it look like a pretty necklace. Sawsan Secretspy has come out with another lovely skin, this one for the SWANK event, and I reddened my lips with a deep red from Constance Daehlie’s makeups at AnyBody.
