I have been wanting to photo the second version of Stockholm & Lima’s Victorian bench from the January Deco(c)rate for a while, so when I received a set of chairs and a cart with refreshments from Roawenwood for the Draftsman event, I determined to do something about it. A trip to Sn@tch to take advantage of their huge sale and a trip to Uber to pick up the new Truth hair, and I was set. Well, I also had to get Ran on and dressed for the occasion, since it would be very lonely to photo a Victorian spanking bench on my own.
A few weeks ago I picked up the Curvaceous pose set from oOo Studio and it turned out to be just what I needed for this post about Aisling’s second ROMP release, the Zina lingerie. As a backdrop I am using the Grande Royale Bed from Roawenwood which really lives up to its name by being quite large and opulent.
A bit of magic might be exactly what I need to have some luck with gachas. I really wanted to put together a full set of the Wicca outfit from deviousMind and the machine was not prepared to co-operate at first (sometimes, nothing is so frustrating as a duplicate rare when all you wanted was a common of a certain colour). Fortunately, I did manage before I broke my budget entirely and with that hurdle out of the way, I was able to put together a magical little scene using items from Roawenwood and Paper Moon.
A new round of ROMP, the event for elegant kink, opened today and my first post (it tends to end up being more than one when it comes to ROMP) features Roawenwood and Aisling. The latter brand have two new sets out at the event, both under the new sub brand of Voluptas Virtualis. I am more than a little thrilled to finally have some superb mesh lingerie for Slink Physique to play with. Sadly, many other great sets at the event were Maitreya only.
There is something oh so romantic and adventurous about an old-fashioned sailing ship (especially if it comes with a dashing pirate captain included, but I digress…) and I have always wanted a nice ship in Second Life. Not so much for sailing (though Ran used to like to do a bit of that), but it can make for a lovely place to admire a virtual sunset from. No surprise, then, that I have following Maxwell Graf’s work on his mesh ship with interest. It has, as I also mention in the video (yes, there’s one of those), been quite a long process, but now Neptune’s Revenge is finally complete and out at Rustica and on the marketplace. And she’s a beauty, as I hope I have managed to show in both the photos and the video.
Its time for that weekend of shopping madness again. In the last years, Black Friday has become a thing here in Sweden as well, even though its not a holiday weekend for us. I am not one to scoff at a good sale, but I have been trying to teach myself not to shop for the sake of shopping or just because something is on sale. I am not ready to move out into the woods and live an entirely self-sustaining life, but I have found that Second Life can be a good substitute for RL retain therapy. If I feel the need to shop just to perk myself up, much better if I do that in SL. Fortunately, there’s no shortage of excellent deals on virtual goods and if skins are your vice then the Skin Addiction Black Friday sale has you covered.
I am having hot chocolate as I type this. Christmas-flavoured (aka gingerbread flavoured) hot chocolate from Monbana. No whipped cream though, since it is the middle of the week and I plan to be a (mostly) good girl until Christmas, when I will eat entirely too much food and candy. But I had to at least have some hot chocolate today because it is cold and dark outside and my avatar is looking so very cosy with her mug of hot chocolate (at least, I think I picked the chocolate) and her cosy sweater dress.
The lovely part of autumn is in the past now, with all the leaves torn down by wind and darkened to a rather unattractive brown by rain. Fortunately, it is easy to recall it in Second Life, where the autumn trees are always at their prettiest, with crisp leaves of red and gold.
As you may have noticed, I’ve started changing up the credits again, going back to the more traditional approach of having them at the end. I am still figuring out precisely how I want to do the linking (store or page, for example), so expect it to fluctuate a bit more. Some of the older entries may also end up displaying a bit weirdly as I work on tweaking some of the blog setup in preparation for a larger makeover. But, enough about that! Today, it seems I have been a naughty girl…
One of Roawenwood’s latest releases is the Einarr Stone Throne, available at a 25% discount at the current round of The Fantasy Collective. This called for Ran being not just behind the camera but also in the scene, since I could hardly be dancing seductively in front of an empty throne. He did not complain too much, however, especially not after seeing the set from Aisling that I was wearing.
The Fetish Fair ends on September 2nd, so you’re nearing your last chance to check out what’s on offer. Roawenwood has two new releases at the fair, both at a 50% discount, and I am taking a look at one of them in this post: the Enchained dance set.
Suddenly, it is ferociously hot here and of course I had picked today for a thorough house cleaning. Perhaps that is why I was inspired to make this photo of someone working in warm conditions! New releases by Roawenwood, Tableau Vivant and ieQED are featured in this “crafty” post.
Romp opened yesterday and is celebrating its anniversary with an opulent two-sim fair, full of naughty treats. I decided to make use of a prop from Roawenwood from a previous round of Romp to give Ran something to do while I dressed myself up in new releases from Luxuria and Aisling. The gorgeous hair I am wearing is actually the gift from Analog Dog at Hair Fair, which opened today.
Roawenwood made this lovely harp in three wood colours for Indie Teepee. I struggled a little at first in finding a setting that I liked for the harp, but then I remember this little island that I made in my latest reshaping of the sim and where I had placed the stone circle from HEXtraordinary. The setting then determined the rest of the items, a more modern look than I had at first envisioned but with a touch of whimsy about it.
Sorry, I couldn’t resist that! But you really don’t want to miss that Sn@tch is having a sale, which of course means fatpacks at insane prices. I picked up the Martina lingerie used in this post (comes with and without the “modesty panels”) and decided to use a recent prop from Roawenwood to show it off. This post definitely gets NSFW!
