Glory

It’s almost time for the latest round of Midnight Madness, the throwback event that showcases beautiful gifts from talented creators with limited quantities, yours just for a quick slap of the board. This month, Salt & Pepper has two brand new gifts for the midnight and noon boards, the Gloria blouse and skirt. The blouse is available at midnight (just about 7 hours from now) with the skirt on the board at noon tomorrow. The gift colours are white for the blouse and sparkly silver for the skirt, but you can purchase add-on HUDs for both for only 199L each to give you a whole variety of choices.

There are limits of 1500 on each item, but “Last Chance Vendors” will go live on Sunday at 12:00 am SLT and will give you the last chance to pick up the gifts for a very discounted price between 25 – 50 LS . The amount of gifts is not limited, but the vendors will be live for 24 hours only. After that period the exclusive colors will not be available again.

You can check out the blog post for a countdown timer to the event to make sure you don’t miss out, and there is a link just below the clock to the current catalogue of goodies available. It is worth a peek, as some designers offer discounts on last chance purchases for group membership, which is listed below the vendor photos.

Do a little sim hopping, slap some boards and come out the other side in all of your glory.

Literary Kitty

This isn’t an unfamiliar sight at my place. Curled up with a book while my cat cuddles me. The only difference is that’s a Kindle instead of an actual book, but that’s a minor point.

The theme for the September round of The Liaison Collaborative is “Literary-ly”. There are loads of reading-inspired items available. Some, like the pose set from Le Poppycock are more literal, while others, such as my gown, earrings and rings are inspired more figuratively. All are delightful; all are divine.

I have to say, though, that my favourite item from this round is the Rose LeLutka Applier from *Birth*. I know I said just a few days ago that I had found my new look, but then I tried on this skin. New. Instant. Fave.

I have long been a fan of *Birth*, and this new release is a classic example of why. Beautiful texturing and tone, great lip, eyeliner and makeup options, and just so lovely. I think I’m as pretty as a picture in this skin.

I’m perfectly poised in it, just like my literary kitty.

The Old Kissing Bridge

The height of romance is a walk in the country, capped off by a kiss on a wooden bridge. The Old Kissing Bridge is the latest main store release from {what next}. It comes with three texture choices, plus lanterns and steps for decoration. There is even a sign that has three choices of text, plus a plain version in case you want to add your own. The bridge rests on stone piers that can be sunk into the ground or left exposed. On my land, it worked best to sink them, so they aren’t visible, but the texturing is lovely.

There are no poses included, but that just means you can choose your own. You can stroll, kiss or cuddle to suit your mood.

It is a truly stunning addition to your landscape, capped off with a kiss.
