Thankful

 


Even though 2020 has been a rough year (that's an understatement), I am still Thankful for every single thing (like my three year old says).  I am thankful for people both on Second Life and in Real Life that I call friends.  I am thankful that none of my family has gotten sick and that we still have income to continue on in life when so many are unsure.  I count my blessings every single day.  Lastly, I am thankful to blog.  That stores like my work enough to help keep my blogging going, so I have a creative outlet. 

Now enough on that.  What is pictured in this photo that I want to highlight is the rocking chair and this wonderful background.  Estwards Rockingchair is a promo with Wanderlust for $50L today only by Raindale.  In addition, she has 25L gochas set out and a gift reward for group members.  The backdrop is by Ionic and is named Toledo 3.  The great thing about the backdrop is you can use in a setting for home goods like I did or for avatar photos.

Lazy Day

 


Sunday's are lazy days and Grumpy cat is taking it easy as the sun streams in.  Decor Junction* released the Hall Table Decor.  I used version two but there are three designs to choose from.  I paired it with some finds from a new store called House Of Moose*.  These include the Modern Rug, "Circles" Painting 2 and Large Leafed Plant.  Grumpy Cat was adopted at from The Rezz Room.

Trimming The Tree


Some people I know have already set out their Christmas decorations.  It's just that type of year where we need more cheer.  I dressed in my new cashmere sweater and trousers called Cecilia by Belle Epoque to stay chic while decorating the house.  I pulled out a few of my older Christmas items from around the grid and got to work on my blog post while listening to Christmas Music.

Baby It's Cold Outside

 


Baby it's just a little cold outside. I decided to find a nice winter sim to take my photo at and explore.  I went to Second Life's Destination Guide for the week and went to Astoria. KiB Designs just released the beautiful Manisha Gown that is at this round of Designer Showcase that I wanted to showcase.  I then dug through my inventory to find a jacket that would keep me warm and the rest is history.

Christmas Living Room


 I love Infinite Furniture.  The one thing that sets them apart from other furniture maker is the sit sequences in the sofa and chair.  These come in couples or solo's and can run for up to four hours. I used the Man Cave to display the Living Room which is either inside a rock or a skybox.  I have paired the Cole Fireplace with Carl's Living Room for a manly Christmas Living Room.

The Corset


 I am Second Life old as I like to call it.   I came into this world through the CSI sim in 2008.  I have seen many changes in this world.  I also have a large inventory full of old, but wonderful things.  I am starting to mix new and old items together in my photos.  Some things can no longer be found in Second Life as the creators are no longer in world or have passed in their real lives.  I am enjoying this new mix of items in my blogging.  So today's corset called Dorothea is from Jumo Originals and can be found at the current round of Designer Showcase.  I still remember when Jumo was a new store.  She is so friendly and I am glad her store has done well over the years.  She works so hard to bring us the best designs on the grid.

Just Be

This is a place where I go to take my mind off of things and just be.  I love the seating and really enjoy the fire pit.  I am soaking up as much fall as I can before the winter hits Second Life as well.  The decor I used today can be found at the current round of Swank.  Just visit the Harshland & Simple Reflections boths.

Autumn Breeze


The Autumn breeze blows through the living room while the sun lights up the space.  I love the light and neutral colors in this room with the hints of teal.  It is like a picture in a magazine of a fancy home.  I used items at this round of Swank paired with other new things around the grid.  Just take a moment and have a seat.

Telenovela Slap


 I really like using eyeshadow that is dramatic as it shows up really well on darker colored skin.  Dotty's Secret always hits the mark in this area.  Drama Queen which has been released at The Jail Event is no different.  I choose  Telenovela Slap as my color since it matched my dress so well.  Check out the color chart at the end of my post for more colors with awesome names.  Check out my Layers to Beauty post for other details about my beauty look.
