Sanctuary

1-sanctuary-sm

Pouf: (n) a versatile piece of furniture that can be used as a seat, a footstool or a table.

I made that up.

But seriously, whomever named this piece had to have a bit of a whimsical streak. I fully expected it to disappear from my inventory (“Poof!”), but thankfully, it didn’t. From Soy. found at the January round of The Liaison Collaborative, it is a must-have for decorating. I can see this equally at home in the bedroom or even a large bathroom, as well as the living area I set up with loads of lovely things from the January Deco(c)rate and gacha prizes from Kustom9.

It is a wonderful piece to help create your own sanctuary.

Pretty stuff I’m showing off:

Glitter & Glam

1-glitter-shine-sm

The January BishBox is out and it is a glitzy, glittery, glamourous release.

The glitz comes from these ear cuffs from Noodles, which you’ll be seeing a lot of in the coming days. I haven’t taken them off since my box arrived! The cascading diamonds, along with the single solitaire that sits atop your ear have just struck my fancy. And speaking of fancy, the hair from Doe with multiple single colours and belayage wrapped up in a very posh bun are simply la-di-da. The dress from a new-to-me store, [I<3F] & [I<3C] is simply classic, echoing Chanel with the white-on-black design.

If you aren’t a part of the BishBox subscription, hop over to the BishBox Headquarters to pick up the current box and sign up for the next.

Dangerous Curves

1-suit-up-sm

If you are like me, the thought of putting on a jumpsuit in real life is akin to having my skin peeled from my body with tweezers, after being dipped in boiling hot oil. There is nowhere to hide once that Lycra slides over your thighs and no amount of gut-sucking-in can make that once-flat tummy behave like it was eighteen again!

That, however, is not an issue in Second Life, where your curves are as generous as you choose and no matter what you put on, you look fabulous. That holds true for the Suit Up jumpsuit by Apple May Designs for the current round of The Seasons Story. The plunging neckline draws attention to not only your cleavage, but drags the eye to your perfectly nipped waist. And that Apple Bottom is in evidence in this outfit – not something to miss!

Those features alone make this worthy of your Lindens, but my favourite part of this jumpsuit, by far, is how the cuffs slide down into the heel of my shoe with the absolute perfect wrinkles. Oh, did I mention the shoes???? They are conveniently called the Suit Up Heels and are designed to work perfectly with this jumpsuit. They are also from Apple May Designs, found alongside the jumpsuit at The Seasons Story.

You are guaranteed to stop traffic in this number, so you had best avoid rounding dangerous curves!
