A Gathering


Happy Boxing Day to those of you on my side of the world and Merry Christmas to those of you a day behind. Mine was a quiet day, but I remember those holidays when my extended family gathered together to celebrate. They are precious memories, precious times.

To brighten your day even more, you can’t go wrong with these new items from [ keke ]. The Glass Hearts are available at The Forest and are exquisite. You may be familiar with The Forest as the event where you pay a group fee and simply collect all of the items set out by the creators. However, you can now forego the group payment and simply purchase the items singly. Of course it is more expensive per item, but if you just want one or two (and you do want these hearts!), then that is now an option. That is a great gift!

The other new release is the standing bulb lights, available at Uber. There are three colours to choose from and each colour pack comes in three colours. Light up your life with these clever lamps.

Enjoy your day, whether you spend it alone or in a gathering of friends and loved ones.

The Magical Garden


Imagine a place where bunnies sit, foxes pose and kitty cats pounce. Where secret white flowers glitter and shine. Where twinkling lights peek through the grass and a cage becomes a resting place.

[ keke ] has released this beautiful Secret Garden Flowers set for the October round of The Forest. This is the event where you pay a fee and wander through the forest to collect all of the beautiful offerings from some of the best designers on the grid. That’s right – you get them all. The link above takes you to the website, where you can check out the shopping guide and the link in the credits takes you directly to the event.

It is a magical place full of magical things. Visit before it disappears on October 25th.

Oh, yeah, you need a little Kaboom! in your life. These neon signs from [ keke ] for The Forest are flashy and fun. They are just the thing you need for your game room, club or…bedroom 😉

Also worthy of a superhero-type mention is my top from *Just BECAUSE*, available at the September round of Mesh Body Addicts. A simple bustier is made extra special by the studs, which are HUD-driven to change colours. It’s a perfect staple for your wardrobe, easily going from casual to dressy.

My footwear and stockings are both from fri.day, with the shoes found at ShoeBox and the stockings at Shiny Shabby. Do hurry to grab the stockings; Shiny Shabby closes on September 15.

A final word about my pose. I bought the shorts I am wearing (along with a sweet fuzzy top, not shown in this photo) and “wore” the box (actually a HUD) to open it. As I was sorting through the folder I received, I noticed I was floating. I love clever presentation boxes and //Ascend// lives up to their name with this adorable animation. It loops through several poses and I was so enchanted I decided to use the animation in my photo.

Lots of goodies here, folks. Lots of POW! BANG! KABOOM!
