Holiday Break

I’ve been burning at both ends for a while now, so I’ve decided to take a break, but just for the weekend! It’s Thanksgiving up here, and I’m going to my Grandpa’s for a little holiday.

Hopefully, that’ll give me the motivation to come back and actually do something.

See ya later!

October Tea

It’s the first of October, and the start of a nonstop seasonal celebration that will go to the end of the year. It’s my favourite time of year really, the whole latter half of the calendar.

So much creative decorating happens, and one of my favourite things to do is try and come up with a new style, unconventional style for each holiday. This was my attempt at an nontraditional colour pallet for fall. The yellows and oranges are still there, but I’ve brought in a rustic purple for a bit of flavour.

Sunday Afternoon

I love refurbished things. Something old and useless, recycled and repurposed for a new life. Course, in SL it doesn’t have the same implications as it does for the real world, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t look just as cool!

Red Fish, Blue Fish

I love when new bathrooms are released, they’re somewhat of an ignored field when it comes to Second Life. Trompe Loeil has a beautiful bathroom ensemble at FaMESHed that comes in a ton of different colours to suit any style.

I think my favourite part about the set is the shower curtain; it’s what actually inspired this look. There’s a ton of different textures you can pick from, giving you the option to change the style of your bathroom with one, simple click. Go from classic and traditional to fun and bright in a matter of seconds!

It’s mid month, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t any good shopping to be had. One thing I notice is that if I go back to events that opened a few weeks ago, I see things I missed during the lag and rush to get what was new and shiny.
