The Environment Enhancement Project is almost here!

While I have been looking forward to its unveiling for many many months, I was also relieved to learn that we will still have the ability to make changes to the environment lighting. Photographers can breathe a sigh of relief. 

My photo styling of the eve includes a new release from MEVA at Cosmopolitan. The Tamara pullover boasts asymmetrical styling. a casual mood, and a dare to be bare bandeau. Texture change choices and an optional scarf add to the set. 

While you are there, be sure and pick up some very pretty plain hoop earrings in both silver and gold (two versions of each) as a gift.

First Signs of Fall

the first signs of Fall

The leaves are beginning their dance towards russets and golds. Fittingly, for me, my styling palette follows the seasons.

Amacci Necklace - Ria (earrings are also available) at Cosmopolitan.

Welcome Fall

what next Fall

Folks around the globe seem uncertain when Fall actually begins.  From the many times and dates I found, I am going with September 22 for many of us.  Whenever you celebrate, the peaceful days of turning inward are on the horizon.

The moment when day and night are equal is also the time when the sun enters Libra, sign of balance.  Libra is not prone to decision making, so if you have a difficult time deciding on Autumn decorations you can blame that on the stars!  :D

To make your shopping easier, {what next} has set up a Fall shopping area close to the landing point.

One thing that sets many of the items apart is their tendency to be cheery. Whites instead of blacks and browns in many instances; even the somber toned collections have a happy feel.

So stop on over and start your Fall decorating.



I had to smile when I saw this new set from deviousMind for The Fantasy Collective.  It took me back -- oh so long ago -- to some of Chandra's early works. They were prim back then of course but still quite impressive. I can remember holding a lantern like this in some long-forgotten sim.  Good to remember.

Lightbringer has 20 sets of silks in the mix plus some outstanding "adds" to make your fantasy come to light. Coins and chains, lantern and rotating stars all combine in an impressive show of power.

You know you want it!

My hair is new from Vanity Hair, Bye Bae. Many color packs to choose from.

A Foreign Affair

Tonight I am over at the lovely fishing village at Saint Martin. The typist has been to Saint Martin as well as Sint Maarten and this is a fairly accurate portrayal of the place I visited long ago.  Peaceful and calm with ocean breezes and waves crashing in the distance -- sea gulls call out to their mates.

Simply Amazing


Some impressive new releases come together in this post.

First up Baiastice Allen Lingerie Set at  Frou Frou
Is it a slip? Is it a dress?  Lounging or dancing -- your choice. Mesh nylons and silky panties come with -- in many colors of course.  Maitreya, Slink, Belleza

Need some new outdoor furniture?  The Trompe Loeil   Nellah couch  and chair come with tons of fabric choices, perfect for your casual times in nature. Find them at COLLABOR88.

Next up - let's talk trees. 

The tree behind me is a sculpt tree. Now aside from a few older sculpt trees that are still very much "everywhere", I thought sculpt trees had left the planet so to speak.   I am happy to willingly reassess that point of view.

This is a lovely tree and only one in many color varieties available. It does take some time to rez; not forever but noticeable. Beyond that it is pretty perfect.  So go take a look for yourself. Four land impact as shown, it comes with a smallish landform (I retextured to match my grass) and a menu with lots of choices.  Find the ROIRO - Rasen Trees at the new round of Cosmopolitan.

Hair:  no.match_ ~  NO_WHY ?

Back in Time - Sweeny and Tim

It always amazes me when decade old features make it into the popular posts sidebar and this one had me smiling broadly.

2010.  Good times. 

The world was different then. We were still waiting around for the sky to fall in 2012. Didn't happen by the way.

Contests were still a big thing and well populated with budding photographers, dancers and fashionistas.

So I am bringing this out from the archives in hopes that it jogs a few memories of other good times. It won't be long until October and those bump in the night festivities.

Black Times Two

Sunflowers full grown and bending towards the ground.
The end of summer draws near.

PLAAKA - Sunflower Rectangle at The Arcade (I got mine at the Seraphim Yard Sale :D).

Not for the prim challenged and venturing towards LOD3 status, it is beautifully made and my favorite piece from the event. Round version and arch also available.

My still in summer mode ArisArisB&W Enthralling Romper can be found here. A full range of patterns via hud and many many body fits add extra value.
