Writer’s Retreat

If I was writing a novel in SL, L2 Studio's Writer's Shed available at Gallery Gift Shop would be a perfect place to do it. This small build has a great modernist feel with deco elements and would work well as a guest house or studio space for an artist or writer. The hopper style windows in the lounge make it light and airy and at 37li and a footprint of just 11x12 you can fit it on any size lot with room for a garden. The interior surface area is small, but I did manage to get a lot of furniture in the space. Visit L2 Studio for more builds in this and other styles at great prices.

The clothing here features Zaara's top (texture-change collars and cuffs if you buy the additional hud) and Howl's Cardigan with texture-change shirt from the August Mens Dept. The hair (Moon), glasses (Modish), bag (Zenith) and shoes (Eudora 3D) are also from Mens Dept. Wander over there before the end of the month, you won't be disappointed.

    Loaded

    Another Mens Dept round drawing to a close and like always there are awesome looks to be had, both for day and night. Great denim from Razor and Aphorism, the latter's "Loaded" outfit includes a little something extra to keep you safe, whatever your line of work, in the big, bad city. Nice casual styles from Etham and Howl - love blogging those - and great accessories from Eudora 3D and Gabriel too. Go check it out!

    Last day for the Men Only Hunt! You still have time to run out and get some of the great stuff shown below. And like every month, Mens Dept is underway, where you can pick up the Monso hair and Clef de Peau skin my avi is wearing, or Gabriel's awesome Summer cardigan set with texture change shirt.

    Cranberry Isle

    Nothing like the joys of a weekend getaway. Cranberry Isle, a 30-minute ferry ride from the Maine mid-coast, is known for it's quaint streets and sprawling summer clapboard houses, wooded paths and rugged shore. Bikes are the preferred means of travel here and any old rust bucket with a basket will do. Happily, the days have warmed enough to stash the winter wardrobe, but a sweater or jacket is still required. Visit before the summer people come! 

    All clothing from the May round of Mens Department, which ends soon so don't miss it, plus two items from the upcoming Men Only Hunt, one of the year's best events for SL males (will show more from that hunt when it gets underway).

    The Valley (Part 2)

    I couldn’t leave Silver Sea without doing a few more shots (see Part 1 here). Must be the micro-climate, but a sudden thaw let me break out Deadwool‘s shirts from Mens Dept and even the morning chill wasn’t bad (as shown in the last pic). As I started the long hike out, I knew I’d be back in the Spring…

    The Valley (Part 1)

My avi also features the excellent Xmas gift skin from Belleza, which is actually one of three you can find in Belleza notices (Belleza group joiner fee of 250l).

    Oh Deer

    After my recent foray into the cold and snow, nothing better than to be back around a warm fire.

    Note the great jacket, which is a gift you can pick up over at (Red)Sand. Also a cool hat from Laney's, free for the SL Frees group, but you better hurry because apparently it won't be around much longer.

    Smile, Winter is coming

    The November Mens Dept round ends today and that is a good excuse for the guys out there to stock up on some warm clothes because Winter is coming. Personally I'm not a big fan of Winter, but I try to smile and make the best of it.
