When Sarah came to town

Sarah outfir by Azul

When Sarah came to town it was by mid day train,

it was usually late but on that day it was perfectly on time

When Sarah came to town it was if time stopped still and so did I,

she stood on the platform in a chic city type two tone outfit ,

of black and pale pink from the tip of her high heeled shoes to the top of her huge floppy hat.

When Sarah came to town she stepped off the train and looked around

then she took off her hat and looked at me with violet eyes sparkling with mischief.

When Sarah came to town it was as if everything else faded into the background

and all I could see ..was Sarah.

Azul has released Sarah in a range of colors, this Sakura and black combination is limited to  buying on the Marketplace , for other colors head to the mainstore.

Lily of the Valley

Lily of Hollowdell , SMD @ FGC

I love gacha! There is no denying it, especially once you get a glimpse of my inventory, and with my love of things that are fantasy.. well the Fantasy Gacha Carnival is an event that draws me like a magnet. So many amazing designers involved and the range of styles and items is wonderful. Over time the layout has changed and I must admit I found it a little harder to navigate to make sure I had seen every machine , but that’s when a guide of stores is so useful – check out this one on Seraphim http://seraphimsl.com/2017/02/07/play-for-the-newest-gear-at-fantasy-gacha-carnival/. You have until March 7th to get your Fantasy Gacha fix!

Rudolph’s replacement

Rudolph's replacement

When a couple of pairs of wonderfully wintery antlers landed in my lap courtesy of AviCandy, I knew this was a sign for me to make sure I am on Santa’s Nice list this year. I am going to volunteer as Rudolph’s understudy.. just in case he catches a cold or breaks a hoof or something I am ready, willing and able to help out Santa this Christmas.

Joking aside you can now find these and another glorious set of antlers in white, at the AviCandy display at The Winter Solstice Event. My super cute Rudolph inspired skin is actually a gift from TheSkinnery which you can get for free if you join The Chapter Four group ( free to join). It is designed to be used with Akeruka mesh heads so be sure to grab it if you have one, and if you don’t well now is a good time to go and demo the collection at Akeruka, they are already releasing Bento updated versions of current mesh heads.

Sweet Sensation

Sensation Duo Beige outfit, Sascha's Designs, NoMatch hair, Zuri Rayna Jewelry

So I decided to slip into something silky and pose seductively at home.. just the usual Secondlife evening  you know. Okay so I was unpacking the lovely evening trouser suit Sensation and the classic styling and luxurious textures just tempted me to go for glam.. even though I had no plans to go out.

The Sensation outfit is available in a range of colors and includes two tops, this silky one and a two toned long sleeve blouse, a wonderful way one outfit could take you from day to evening with just a change of accessories. Speaking of accessories my gorgeous Symphony set is a new recolor of this classic style which has to be one of my favorites of all times from Zuri Rayna.

Elen [AK] head with Skinnery applier, Zuri Jewelry

My full pouty look is one that I am still getting used to, I have been experimenting with a lot of the different mesh heads I have..today it’s the Akeruka Elen , Bento version.  After playing around with shapes I again decided to take an easy option and pick up the corresponding shape made by Strawberry Singh. I like the overall effect of this Skinnery applier but I tweaked the shape and even altered it some more as I would like a slightly less full lip for this  look. At the same time I do like this sultry as it is quite different from the other mesh head looks I have created to use as bases for blogging with.

Shhh I know a secret

Shhh I know a secret

I confess it is less a secret than I let you believe, Carries Lingerie has begun their yearly countdown to Christmas!

Tied top and panties, Carries Lingerie + Candy cane Santa hat gacha

From the first of December they will be having a daily new release and today it is a series of glittery mix and match pieces. I purchased the tied top  and the panties, but there’s also two skirts, various bras, a halter neck top and a dress.. oh plus boots and shoes for Slink high feet.. so many choices. But the great thing is regardless of whether you buy one item or many , they each include a range of fittings for different mesh bodies. Also the pieces I am wearing include a hud of different sparkling fabrics so you can mix and match a range of festive colors: red, green, white , silver, gold, blue.

Skinnery + Catwa , Argrace, Vista bento hands + Pink Hustler anim

While the Christmas Countdown is on the VIP Area is open to everyone, just take the tp board at the entrance of the mainstore and you will be in a winter wonderland in no time. As well as a daily new release , which is available at half price for VIP members on the day of release, you will find displays with special sales. Scattered around are a range of gachas also which is where I picked up the cute candy cane hate. During your visit be sure to drop in and sit on Santa’s lap.. are you on the naughty or nice list this year?

Before I drop down to the details and a SLurl to Carries Lingerie I want to quickly mention a few other items in my photos.. namely my hands. Yes these are the Bento capable hands from Vista Animations and this is the first time I have used them in a photograph. The inspiration was the Pink Hustler Animations that are available at their store , after demoing all three choices I selected this one as I thought it would have the most poses I will use.. however maybe I will pop back and pick up another set, at 200L for multiple animations including mirrors it’s a fun addition to SL. The facial animations are courtesy of the add-on purchased for my Catwa Tumble head, I have treated myself to an early Christmas present of both the Bento capable hands and the Catya Bento head, so I look forward to seeing what animations become available for that in the future.
