Bundle Up


I popped over to Furillen the other evening to steal Serene’s snow. The sim was almost empty. Although it is a rather barren sim by design, just about everything was gone, except for a couple of buildings. Serene is turning it into the planet Hoth as a change up. He had the sim locked down today to work on it and I can’t wait to see it.

However, the simplicity of the snow, the sky and the water were just what I wanted to showcase this cozy coat from neve available at The Liaison Collaborative and these adorable heels from fri.day for the December round of The Liaison Collaborative. To protect my knees from freezing, I added a pair of cute reindeer tights from .::Nanika::., also from TLC.

I am nice and toasty, all bundled up in this sweet outfit. Thank god – there wasn’t a Tauntaun in sight!

In A Mystical Place

1 Polebarkian Princess sm

It has been a long, tiring day at work. I’ve been having more of those lately than I care to have. But I am trying to get my feet back under me when it comes to my blog. I have so many lovely things queued up to show you from so many wonderful designers. I will do my best to give them the attention they deserve.

Today’s photo is rather mystical, which goes wonderfully with the jacket and skirt from Salt & Pepper for the May anniversary edition of We < 3 Roleplay. The sandals from fri.day for Uber fit right in. I’m not a roleplayer, but I do know how to scout out a great location in Second Life, in this case, Rustica.

I keep wondering when my world will slow down and I can settle back into my usual routine. Instead, I keep waking up in a mystical place. I guess I’ll have to learn to embrace it.

Starting The New Year With A Bang

1 New Beginnings sm

OK, so maybe the “bang” happened several months ago…

Actually, it began over a year ago for Apple May’s update of the Baby Bump. Version 2.0 has several upgrades:

– New hud controlled belly progression with FOUR stages
– Omega compatibility
– Skin appliers included + Skin Tinter
– Easy to use hud for hiding/showing different clothing layers
– Now provides 4 layers: skin, under garments, tattoo, and clothes.
– Easy to use hud controlled layers with on/off buttons as well as blend or mask alpha options
– Previous appliers DO work on your updated belly!

I have to say that while skin matching has never been a strength of mine, I was able to very closely match my PXL Natural skin using the HUD. I actually didn’t have to do much blending in Photoshop for this photo. I don’t have any appliers for the product, so I can’t personally vouch for how those work, but I have never had problems with appliers for any other product, so I wouldn’t anticipate any issues with these. The HUD is simple to use and it can be minimised on your screen, out of the way when you are not editing.

While this isn’t a product I would buy for myself (not planning any SL pregnancies), but for those of you who are looking for new beginnings, it is a well-crafted product with loads of capability. If you already own one and are expecting another bundle of joy, you can receive the update. If you did not receive your update just visit the redelivery tab on the information board in store to have it redelivered. If your purchase was prior to February 2014 please contact Italia Villota to verify your purchase.
