Time to Redecorate

The Sitting Area - Redecorating

It has been awhile since I redecorated my skybox. I mean, it has been YEARS. The look and feel is much more lively now and less stuffy. I wanted to include a tiny kitchen, since I tend to blog cooking and recipes. You will see the new one in the pictures. Previously I only had a coffee station next to the desk.

Redecorating Home

I have to tell you that I loved the pillow color combinations on this Cheeky Pea couch. But I wanted my colorful pillows on the white couch. After choosing my pillow and throw color I unlinked them from the couch. Then I chose the white texture for the couch, and now I have the color combo I want. The 2 rugs by the hidden kitchen have been changed out to new What Next rugs since this picture was taken (see kitchen picture).

In the past I decorated heavily with Apple Fall. Now, I am more likely to choose old favorites like What Next, Cheeky Pea, and Dust Bunny. And new loves such as Ariskea. No more old stuffy skybox. I still throw in some Apple Fall here and there.

Baking Cherry Pie from Scratch

Cherry Pie Recipe

Cherry Pie makes me think of summer. Honestly, if you can find cherries then you can have it anytime. I found several recipes to help us bake a cherry pie today. The one I used was easy to follow and everything was made from scratch. Sally doesn’t cook her cherry pie filling before placing it in the pie crust and that saves time. Anybody can go to the store and buy a ready made pie crust. We are doing this by scratch. Please follow the recipe from Sally’s Baking Addiction, or look up a different recipe to suit your tastes.

Heart Shaped Macarons: Cute Valentine’s Day Gift

Heart Shaped Macarons

Once a month I usually post a recipe on my fashion blog. Today we went shopping and bought macarons instead. Who is going to cook these anyways. It is easier and most likely will look prettier if you go buy and them from a bakery. Let’s get on to making them look fancy. A great way to give these to your valentine would be to place them in a vase as a bouquet. There you have your flowers and candy all in one go! You could also buy an adorable tiny cloche and cupcake stand to place a macaron on. Tie a little bow on the front and watch your valentine melt from the cuteness.

I don’t usually show you all behind the counter. But since we’re mixing things up anyways, let’s take a look at my outfit. The outfit is new from N-Uno at N21. I paired it up with leggings since it is still chilly out. I have a new Beusy hairstyle. This is called Velvet and comes with color change roses to you can add.

What Kind of Planner are You?

What Kind of Planner are You

There are many kinds of planners out there. What kind of planner are you? I recently had to take a crash course in planners. I wanted to purchase a planner for a friend, and they are more in depth than just going and buying one. There are fitness planners, diet planners, travel planners, career planners, pet planners, and so on. I just wanted a planner. What kind of cover do you need, what type of paper, what kind of pages, stickers, clips, flags, tape and it goes on?! I did end up purchasing a kit from Michael’s and some extra stickers and pens. I think my friend will be very happy with her gift.

Planners Types 1024

In Second Life we have a few planners to choose from. These are only for decor purposes. My favorites are -tres blah- Hodgepodge – Agenda RARE, The Secret Store – Planner, and REIGN.- NOTEBOOK AND DAY PLANNER- # 12. The first two are from older gachas and the REIGN. one is from the current round of Epiphany.

My cute outfit is new from Blueberry. The top is a separate piece that looks amazing with it. You can see it on Flickr. Hands bending in SL is not always so kind to our outfits. I did have to edit the sleeve around the hand in this picture.
