So. Quite a lot going on around here. There are so many events that my head actually spins just thinking about it. It’s a bit overwhelming, really.
For example, this top. Cute, right? I literally laughed out loud when I saw it. It’s part of a set, which is just one of many things you can grab at [A] Limited through the end of the month. It comes in both long and short versions, so if you prefer to cover that midriff, you can. Me, I think the belly on this skin is too pretty to cover up. The shoes are actually from a previous week of Fi*Friday at Vershe, but you can still find them in the store. They’re also the only mesh thing I am wearing today. Weird, huh? These are in a striped pack, but I was happy to find other textures available, too. Hey, my love for zebra print is perfectly valid, you hush your mouth!
The paper roses here are also an event item. They can currently be found upstairs at The Gallery Gift Shop. I absolutely love this particular event, as it combines my affection for fashion with my art obsession. And this gorgeous Mudhoney cushion I am lounging on is available at this month’s Motif*.
It’s not part of an event, but how awesome is that shipwreck miniature? I’ve used it every time I’ve redecorated since I bought it. It’s fun and it’s different, both things I enjoy in my home. Continue reading
Flowers are a good way to apologize, right? I really had planned to do so much more with the ridiculous number of poses I bought at Pose Fair, but as the primary (and often only) person in charge of taking care of my grandmother post surgery, I simply do not have the energy or patience at the end of the day. I am sorry, though.
Pose Fair is closing tomorrow, so if you saw something you wanted, RUN. Exclusives may not be available after, and then won’t you be sad that you missed them? I’m sure that five seconds after the sims go down, I’ll remember something I missed. It’s just the way of things. These are two of my favorite props that I picked up. Both contain poses from Glitterati, which is obviously my go-to pose store.
This one is special. It’s a collaboration with Isla Gealach of Cheeky Pea, and it’s just plain fun! I am only showing the sword and shield here, this also includes four capes and a crown, and the sword and shield can be used with and without poses. Where is my pillow fort when I need it?
Hopefully in my next post, I’ll have news for you. Until then, here are the landmarks and slurls for Pose Fair, and here are the credits!

Two more days, y’all! Two more days until Pose Fair opens. I am SO excited. I headed over today for the early preview and it looks fantastic. And the poses? There are so many amazing poses. We won’t talk about how many I have already purchased. Or how many I am going back for. I am going to try to do small previews for the next few days and then more as I get ALL THE POSES organized. Naturally, everything will be credited, but for the next few days, all chatter is pose related. Okay? Okay.
When I rezzed this, Cyclic immediately shrieked, “HORSE!” at me. Not even kidding. It is totally shriek worthy, though, isn’t it? This prop from Captivity Poses comes with five poses and is texture change. There are tons of options for its body, and the mane and tail change separately. There is even a dalmatian option! This store is new to me, but I will certainly be keeping an eye on them from now on.
And this… this is a kid pose. No, really! This is from a set of balloon poses offered by The Kid Company. The entire set is adorable, but this looks like I’m trying to sneak the balloons into my sister’s house, and I love it. Grownups, don’t be afraid to try kid poses, they are FUN!
Okay, I’ll shut up now, but I’m coming back tomorrow! Annnnd I’ll update with slurls after Pose Fair opens.

I am so crazy excited that Motif* is finally open! And not just because that means we’re done decorating it, haha! We have some really talented creators working with OTHER talented creators and bringing you some super fabulous stuff. I’m not showing all of it here, because… well, there’s too much awesome. It might blow up WordPress, and I can’t be responsible for that.
What I do have here is offerings from a.e.meth, Jack Spoon, Savoir Faire Shapes, Schadenfreude, Mudhoney, and Funky Junk. This tee shirt? It’s a collaboration. And the table and chairs were made to go with this house. How great is that? So if you like collaborations and stuff as much as I do, you should come check it out. The ice cream compels you!
Sorry, I couldn’t help myself. Happy shopping!

I could make a show of false modesty, but let’s be honest: My butt looks awesome in these Aura pants. I wasn’t sure I would like them, because they are considerably lower cut than I would normally wear. I demoed them anyway. And look! So good. In some poses, the alpha is going to go a bit odd, but that has more to do with the actual avatar mesh being super weird than an actual problem with the alpha. It’s fine. The avatar…. well. We do what we can with what we have. Most of what we have is fabulous.
Like this sweater. I didn’t actually go to Baiastice for this, but when I got there, I completely forgot what I went in for. Mesh in bold colors, how I love you. So many designers are sticking to neutrals and bland shades for mesh clothing. I want jewel tones and bright, springy colors, and I found them there. It was like they were waiting for me.
In other things making me happy, we have this necklace and this prop. The necklace is newness from Clutter, and I am so thrilled to see Kat doing jewelry again. Don’t get me wrong, I like her furniture, but the woman has a way with sparkles. The prop…. well, it’s bubbles. Do you really need more explanation than that? This sweet piece is from Exposeur. Now is a really good time to go down there, because she has a sale on. I know how you love sales. It’s actually white, but the windlight settings I used turned it different colors. There are also different bokeh backgrounds that you can buy separately. Pretty neat, huh? Now go find something that makes you happy.
