something that makes someone want to do something or that gives someone an idea about what to do or create : a force or influence that inspires someone
a person, place, experience, etc., that makes someone want to do or create something
a good idea

Inspiration, as noted above, is something or someone that influences one, makes one want to create, a good idea. The Inspiration Point sim, the residents, and especially this hunt are all of those. Right now until December 31st, there is a fantastic hunt at Inspiration Point. The participants are The Secret Store, MishMish, Kirin, Tee*fy, LaViere, Flowey, Pizza’s, Jim, Intrigue Co., Pilot, and Boogers. You’ll find 35 bunnies hidden around on the sim. The prizes that these creators have made for us are absolutely amazing! Everyone really should participate in this annual event. There is a hud showing the location of the bunnies on the map, which makes it a whole lot easier. It isn’t and exact location, but you will know that you’re in the vicinity.

In the spirit of the holidays and gift giving Exile and Birdy have gifts set out for us. The cute and fun Exile hair in Candy Cane comes in several different styles. Birdy has the Elsa skin in Pure as a gift for her VIP group. I LOVE that it comes with the Slink skin applier hud.

Inspiration Point Hunt teleport. Ends December 31st.

On Tour

On Tour

The sun broke through the clouds for a bit on this frosty cold day, and I was able to get a few good snapshots. I did the SL Tour of Lights over the last couple of days. Shared a few pics on snapzilla that I took of the lovely homes. You can tell from the pics that I am in love with cottages this year. My favorites were out on tour too! LAQ, dust.bunny, 8f8, and Trompe Loeil’s cottages were all dressed up for the season. Visiting the homes on tour ends December 21st. This house can be found here.

Blue Christmas

Blue Christmas

Christmas is my most favorite time of the year! This year I’m having a Blue Christmas, but not because of sadness. Because I also love the color blue, and I just happen to have some new and really pretty blue decor. llorisen has these really nice skyboxes at the Arcade. They are perfect and have scripted shrubs, floors, windows, and curtains. It is just one big room, but it has an upstairs/downstairs kind of separation. I think it is a great loft. Inside I decorated it with the coveted pretty blue dust bunny christmas tree. I imagine that there was a blue theme going on at the Arcade. Also the Apple Fall deer has a blue scarf on, the PEACE letters from Trompe Loeil are blue, and the little kitten inside the gift box from granny has a blue blanket. This has really been a great round of Arcade. I love everything that I have from the gachas.

Soiree

Soiree Food

It’s time for a soiree! Won’t you join me?

Tres Blah has always made pastries and cakes that I adore. This new Soiree release gives us more of what we can’t live without. I was able to acquire all pieces to the gacha set except the rare lemonade. My favorite is the peach cake, as it is so well made. The icing is not flat, but rippled and wavy like a real cake. The donut frosting glistens and the sprinkles are actually raised mesh and not just texturing. The whole set is all so perfect and cute. You not only get the food, but also soiree decorations. Balloons, party fans, table, curtain backdrop, and pom poms are part of this party.

Soiree

I put the Tres Blah Soiree set with some of the pieces from 8f8 Granny’s Winter Cottage, Trompe Loeil Advent Calendar, Mudhoney, Half Deer, and others. Christmas is my most favorite time of year, and many of the Arcade designers went with that theme. Generous gifts for Arcade shoppers were under the huge tree, which was beautifully decorated and created by Apple Fall and the topper by Aime Takaai of Mish Mish. I really love the hot air balloon and the tree topper Archie.

Arcade Tree

The skin that I have on is from Glam Affair and also found at the Arcade. One of the many gifts underneath the tree is a free skin from Glam Affair, so definitely make sure to visit and pick it up. The funky colored hair and too cute earmuffs are by Tableau Vivant. The little kitty even has earmuffs on! I paired it up with the Birdy Peacoat Dress. It is so soft looking and the color makes it the perfect party dress. Well, looks like I am ready for my soiree. See you soon!

Cottage in Winter

Cottage in the Winter

I wanted to create an image that showed the cold of winter, but one that still made you feel warm.

This cozy little home is from the 8f8 Granny’s Winter Cottage Set. You can choose from six different outside colors through a texture change menu. The mesh house is 120 LI. It can be found at The Arcade, which is the biggest gacha event in Second Life. I’ve surrounded this quaint cottage with trees from Botanical and alirium.
