Lord of the Elephants

For today’s post, I’m back in the Pixel Mode Heights Studio Apartment skybox that came out a few days ago at 6th Republic!  It’s a great setting for this couch from bauwerk that it out for the current round of ROMP.  The couch has a wide variety of animations, including cuddles and adult options, if you buy one of the adult versions.  From the same event, I am also wearing the Cerberus Xing Carnal nipple rings in silver.  The jeans are a new store release from AP.PAREL that are currently also available at The Thrift Shop 9.0 at a discount!  My hair is a new style from Damselfly that is out at On9, which opened yesterday.  Everything else that I’m wearing is available from various events that are going on now, with full credits below.

Saturday at the Beach

Saturday at the Beach

I feel like I’ve been blogging things on my beach a lot, but this time of year, I spent a lot of time here!  When I saw the Starboard Hammock by Consignment and Kuro at the round of Collabor88 that opened yesterday, I knew that I absolutely had to have it.  Then I saw this new version of AP.PAREL‘s zip tank at The Thrift Shop 9.0, which opened today.  I’ve already blogged a couple of other versions of this tank from its initial store release (which was mostly spring-themed), but this new version may be my favorite.  The shorts are at this month’s The Men’s Department, and were created by Modulus.  They’re rigged for The Mesh Project’s body, so they fit perfectly.  I haven’t been able to find many shorts that fit the body as well as these.  Finally, the flip flops* are brand new from FATEstep.  As with all of the FATEstep shoes, the Wilde Sandals include a HUD that changes them to 60 different textures.  These include sandy options, which is perfect for the beach.  Finally, the sunglasses are new at Collabor88 from Sorgo and the necklace is available at The Thrift Shop 9.0 from B’LEAF.  Full credits are below!

A Loft To Call Home

A Loft To Call Home

6th Republic, an event that focuses mainly on industrial-style home and garden items, opened a couple of days ago.  It’s a style that I love, but that I don’t use all that often, but the items there were so inspiring.  I’d like to point out just a couple of the items that I particularly like.  First, the desk in the left part of the photo is from Stockholm & Lima, and comes in both an adult and PG version.  The detail in the desk is just extraordinary.  On top of that is a new decor piece from Apple Fall – the ‘Strength’ Fragment.  The bed and cello are both from a gacha machine created by NOMAD.  It has a total of 8 commons and 1 rare, so it’s not too difficult to collect the full set!  Finally, a lot of the miscellaneous accent items are from a new set by BAZAR.  These include the paper bag, the hanging bicycle, the clothing rack, the shoes, and the lamp.  The setting for all of this is a new studio apartment skybox by Pixel Mode that is just absolutely gorgeous.

I’m wearing things from a couple of different events, as well.  My new shirt from …Scars… and jeans from not so bad are both from The Men’s Department, and my necklace by [Body Factory] is available at The Showroom.  Full credits for what I’m wearing and for the room are below.

Soak Up The Sun

Soak Up The Sun

Half of my sim is a beach area, so I’m always on the lookout for new beach accessories and clothing, and I got really excited when I saw the new Pool Floats from N4RS at this month’s round of The Men’s Dept!  I think it works perfectly just off the shore of this beach behind my home.  The board shorts that I’m wearing are from the same event, and are the Johnny Boardies from ::K::.  As an accent, one of the new summer colors of Lir’s Charm from Empyrean Forge is perfect, and comes from the new round of We ❤ Roleplay.  The perfectly-summery hair is new from Damselfly at Dark Style Fair.  I can definitely see myself wearing this style a lot this summer!

Afternoon Stretch

Afternoon StretchIt always seems like by the time mid-afternoon comes around, I need to get up and stretch a little bit to help myself stay awake and active, so when I saw the yoga/tai chi mat from Roawenwood at The Home Show 2015, I was pretty happy.  I’ve never found a yoga mat in SL that I was really happy with, but this one is definitely up there with my favorites.  I decided to wear items from a couple of current male-focused events to to today’s stretching.  My hair is brand new from Tableau Vivant and the pants are from Apple May Designs, both at The Men’s Dept which just opened yesterday.  The sunglasses from Meva and necklace from [Pumpkin] are both from Men Only Monthly, which opened in late April, but I haven’t had a chance to blog either item yet.  Have a great rest of your Wednesday!

Happy Cinco de Mayo!

Happy Cinco de Mayo

Cinco de Mayo started out as a day to remember and celebrate the Mexican victory over the French at the Battle of Puebla, but has since transformed into a day to celebrate Mexican culture.  I put this outfit together using mostly older items, but the Wonton Sude Fringe Jacket from the round of The Mens Dept that just opened today was really what I needed to bring it all together.  I also adjusted the newly-updated FATEstep Ziggy Chucks* (now available in an unrigged version so that you can manually adjust them) to be the colors of the Mexican flag, which matched them to the jacket and sombrero.  Happy Cinco de Mayo!

A World Below

A World Beneath the Waves (Low Res)

I am proud to be an official blogger for the Fantasy Faire, and as part of being that, they have asked us to complete a series of blog challenges or memes that tie into the event.  Today, I’m doing the My New Shiny challenge, which is to blog about a store that you previously didn’t know much about.  I’m so happy to feature meadowWorks, created by Garvie Garzo!  One of the things that I love about meadowWorks (besides the exquisite craftsmanship in their sculpture) is the fact that rather than having the minimum of 2 Relay For Life donation items for the Fantasy Faire, they have a stunning [NUMBER], in addition to also having a Relay For Life “Gotya” (gacha) machine and a one-of-a-kind sculpture in the silent auction!  This scene features 4 different pieces from meadowWorks in addition to a lagoon rock from Mer-chandise Cove, plants from Cerridwen’s Cauldron, kelp from Balderdash, and rocks from Jammin!
