Upstairs

For some reason I seem to get more faves/likes and views when I do decor posts than fashion. I don’t usually think that I need a new house and furniture as much as I do a new outfit. At least I tell myself that. Actually, I probably actually change my house and furniture just as often. I do enjoy doing these kinds of posts. But I do wonder if I should Only do decor posts.

One of my favorite sets right now is the 8f8 Primavera in Toscana set from The Arcade. I have heard people complain that 8f8 sets are just too large. But think of it, you get the houses and all of the furnishings for just under L$2,000. That is unheard of if you were to go buy each individual piece from a store. Of course to come under this price means you got each piece for L$50, and you didn’t over pay for a rare item. The Arcade is open until the end of this month. But don’t worry if you can’t get all of the pieces there. I usually find missing items at yard sales. Sometimes for well below pull price.

toscana morning

I showed you the downstairs and outside in a previous post. Today I’m inviting you upstairs. I really love the balconies, and I can just imagine a real Tuscan view. The rooms are large and very open. You could put the bathroom up here along with the bedroom if you choose to.

In my pictures I imagined waking up to the bright morning sun in my comfy bed. I see my clothes tossed on the floor from a long fun night. After taking in the breathtaking view, I grab my keys and lipstick before heading out on a new adventure.

Morning Coffee

Chevron

I do love my morning coffee. Rarely do I get to sit around at a table and drink it. I’m usually rushing off to work with my cup in hand. But on this day, and in this life, I am in the new Hideki Bakery enjoying my Sari Sari Cafe Latte. Plus I found a little extra time to catch up on some reading in a fashion magazine. The Hideki Bakery Chairs have very manly animations in them. Not so great for female avatars. Today I am wearing a completely new outfit that I picked up at Collabor88. I love how soft the Tres Blah sweater looks, and the trendy high waist Secret Store pants. Ingenue always makes shoes that are perfect for most any attire. I adore the little bows placed on the Laura heels. My gorgeous make up is from Glam Affair and my hair is done by Exile.

Toscana Afternoon

Anytime is a good time for tea and dessert. I am loving the 8f8 Toscana set from The Arcade. Erratic’s An English Afternoon tea set goes perfectly with it. I added little touches from dust bunny, anc, BoOgErS, and Zaara that compliment the sets. Put on your white gloves and join me for a spot of tea.

Cake and Flowers

Two of my favorite things are even better when together. Windsong and Dust Bunny collaborated together on this super pretty cake and paper butterflies. These are at The Chapter Four. Also from Windsong for The Neighborhood is this night table with books and caged candles. They both have several color options changeable by hud. The delilah chair and babybreath vase are from Dust Bunny at The Arcade. Expect to see a post showing all of the goodies that I picked up there.

Dreamer

Dreamer

The theme for this round of One Word is Fairytales. I felt that Windsong’s items for the event were dreamy. The candles have a script in them that makes them bob up and down a tiny bit. The look just like they are floating. I’ve put them in my Pilot romantic bathtub that came from The Arcade a few rounds ago. You’ll also find the Windsong mirror and divider at One Word. The divider allows you to add a picture to it. I’ve put one from when I was visiting Black Swan years ago.

Things are Rosey

Rosey

Blithe is a new and well designed sim that is open to the public. This is a great sim for hanging out and taking pictures by yourself, with friends, or a loved one. You may have been to or heard of it’s neighboring sim that houses the The Pixel Bean Coffee House. Harlow Heslop has been hard at work making this a carefree and happy place for all to visit. I chose to show off my new look at Blithe.

Rosey

No21 event just opened up on February 21st. I was happy to find more spring like outfits. Here I am all ready for a spring cupcake party at Blithe in this fun Atomic Rosey Posey dress. In each set the sweater top comes in 3 colors and the skirt in 2. The colors are changed by a hud. Lamb created my hairstyle named Birdy. I love how cute and carefree the cut and style is. The gorgeous Yoshiko heels are from Ingenue and can be found at the Creepy Kawaii Fair. These are made for Maitreya, Slink, and Belleza bodies/feet.

Room Additions

Room Addition

I’ve shown you this room before. But, since Collabor88 opened I have added a few new things to it. First is the Trompe Loeil Amelia Loveseat. It comes in three colors and they are loaded full of animations. Also, the pillows are texture change. I really love this piece. Above the loveseat is a Theosophy Beaumaris Mirror. I can see this mirror being used in several different room settings. The gorgeous curtains are from Half Deer. The roses on it are color changing, which makes it perfect for matching your bed set. MishMish and her cute little bears in the suitcase sitting on a bench are irresistible. Dust Bunny collaborated with her on this cute bear set. One last thing I am showing you here is my Schadenfreude Deer in the Forest of Leaves book. I could never cut a book up like that irl. But for SL it is cute and no real books were harmed. The other things in the picture have been blogged before, but I’ve listed them again in case you missed it. Happy dreaming! Don’t miss the items that are discounted for Collabor88. The month is almost over and so is this event.
