Gentle Repose

This kind of describes the way I feel today: I spent the time to find something cute to wear and then…maybe a bit of a lie down. I thought “Gentle Repose” sounded better than “Lazy Slob” so that’s the title I went with.

In case you have a bit more energy than I do, you’ll want to head to Uber for the Kaylah Jeans from Just BECAUSE. They come with four versions: long with both tight and loose fits and for boots, also with tight and loose fits. The loose fit styles work with many bodysuits or tucked shirts. But still, try a demo to make sure they work with your selection. The boot style works perfectly with the Anna Boots from Just BECAUSE (available at the main store or on Marketplace, but they may work with other knee-high boots.

Before my lethargy set in, I visited the [Aleutia] main store to take advantage of the new store opening sale. Items are 25-50% off, with an additional 25% discount for group members. I picked up a few things, including the top I am wearing, which comes with a HUD to customise like crazy. The sale runs through October 1st, so even if you’re having a case of the lazies, too, you still have a bit of time to take advantage.

For any other information about my styling, please peruse the credits. I think I’ll just take a nap.

Comfort & Warmth

It is early in spring here in Australia, and I am already longing for autumn. A cozy couch to curl up on in front of a crackling fire would be amazing. Instead, the temperature is hovering around 31C and I am wearing shorts with the windows wide open.

But with all of these delicious home & garden goodies, I am pretending the frost is just around the corner.

The nirvana set from [ keke ] is as extensive as it is exquisite. You can find it at the current round of Shiny Shabby. And the sofa by Kuro can be found at the main store, where there is currently a sale on selected items. It’s a good time to stock up.

You Had Me At Coconut Cream

I used to bake a lot of pies. I have a crummy oven now, so I rarely make them any more, but I always loved making my own pie crust, then filling it with something yummy. Toasted coconut flakes atop a pale vanilla custard, brimming with more of those delicious morsels – no meringue – in a buttery, flaky pastry shell. I can taste it now, if I close my eyes and shut my mouth (to prevent drooling down my chin).

I was so excited to see the latest release from {what next} for Collabor88. The “Patisserie” Kitchen Decor set is a baker’s delight. As usual, each item comes with texture-change options and unbelievably, each one weighs in at only one Land Impact each. I remember the days when a single table setting gobbled up 20 or more prims. With this set you can get your bake on with the full set for a grand total of only five LI!

If you need a place to display all of these goodies, head over to the Kuro main store for this pretty and practical kitchen. The timing couldn’t be better.

I may just whip up a batch of pie crust later. Writing about coconut cream pie is causing my tummy to growl. More likely, though, I’ll just see how well my memories satisfy my craving…then head to the bakery for a second-rate version I can critique with the hauteur of true Baking Queen.
