Spring Embrace

One of my favorite Second Life home designers, Miss Ulaa Coronet has just recently released a spring themed cottage for you all to enjoy!  I unfortunately, have no place to rez the home currently, but liked it so much that I snuck over to the store to snap some photos to share with you.

The Spring Embrace Cottage from Funky Junk, is lovely, detailed, and perfect for the changing warmer weather.  If you are extra girly you will especially like it because it is VERY PINK!  The cottage is 118 prims (or if you use the adorable accessories included 194), has a reasonable footprint of 17 x 14, and is mod/copy.  Some of the accessories include a gorgeous fireplace, animated front porch swing, and some cute little birdhouses. On the interior you will find a great downstairs area, and a ladder leading to a cozy loft.  Also, on the back side of the cottage is a little sunroom which was my favorite feature of the house.  You could fill it with all sorts of assorted spring items!

If you are in the market for a new home for spring, this is certainly one that I would recommend checking out!

Where It Begins

Have you stopped by the Where It Begins sim recently?  It’s a great sim, filled with a couple stores, some adorable little spots, and a new (and very cute) cafe as well.  The pose I’m using above comes from the store Evolve, owned by Bellastarr Fhang. Her store calls the Where It Begins sim home as well.  If you are looking for a great sim with some beautiful scenery to take photographs at, I highly recommend it.

Maybe I’m a little bold saying this, but Lyric Demina, owner of the fantastic store Chain and Vine, may be one of the best mesh riggers I’ve seen on the grid.  This well made mesh gown that i’m wearing moves BEAUTIFULLY.  Absolutely BEAUTIFULLY.  It was about time that I got around to blogging something from this store once again, and I’m absolutely pleased with this dress.  The pretty flower in my hair comes with the dress as well, and the flowy pieces at the bottom, and ruffle at the top, you can attach optionally. The dress comes in a few other great colors as well.

Now… I just need a formal event to wear it to…

Lips Red As Blood

“Lips, red as blood.  Hair, dark as night.  Bring me your heart, my dear dear Snow White.” – The Evil Queen

Okay…so maybe my hair isn’t as dark as night, but I certainly love that quote from the Tale of Snow White. It’s a quote that’s said in the trailer for the new Snow White & The Huntsmen movie (which looks incredible btw!)  Credits below! Have a great day!

Plum

Just a quick post on this Monday morning to show off a few really fun items.  I finally bought my first pair of mesh jeans.  The quality and detailing on them are quite nice.  You can find them at Maitreya.  They fit my figure really well.  The nice thing about the few well done mesh denim jeans that have been released on the grid is that each is really dynamic, so finding one that fits your avatar shouldn’t be as big of a challenge as it was a few month ago.

My beautiful jacket is from Nemesis and is part of Calypso’s newest bundle of releases.  There are a variety of colors to choose from but “Phlox” was most definitely my favorite.  You have studded and non studded options as well with the jacket.

Aren’t my lips fun?  They are part of the cosmetic pack that comes with the Leah skin at Glam Affair.  Lots of funky, vibrant colors to choose from in the pack.  This is on top of the already great makeup’s that come on a few of the skins featured with the Leah pack.

Lastly, my hair!  It’s one of the three new releases from TRUTH this week.  I think TRUTH had a little extra fun this week when he was making his newest releases.  All of them have quite a bit of character, and are certainly great for some fun photography.

Anyway, that’s about it. This post apparently wasn’t as quick as I meant it to be!  I’m trying to remember to start adding designer names in my credits now. I hope that makes it a little easier to find things right away. Have a good week!

Beachy Windlights

I’ve finally completed my first set of Windlights for you to enjoy!  I can’t guarantee they are any good, as I honestly just fiddled with the settings till I personally thought they looked pretty!  My first set is beach themed.  You can find them on my new resources section on the Windlight Settings Page.

Enjoy! <3
