Did you know there were gifts at The Arcade? The frames in this image a gift from Birdy. You also get a pile of gift boxes for decor. From Lost Junction there is a Slumber Party Archie Pillow gift to hold or rez. And from Moon Amore + Cureless you get the most beautiful surreal balloons. These three creators put the gifts in the demo boards at The Arcade. If you missed them then you should definitely go back!
You won’t believe it but I am wearing a skirt panel with these skirt/leggings. I was skeptical at first because I remember the horrors of big blocky chunk prims in the past. With ambient occlusion turned off you cannot even see the mesh skirt panel as an add on at all. All of these shots are raw and unedited besides cropping and pasting the two together. Mesh moves with you and blends smoothly with the body. I even posted a close up of the skirt to show you. The Nathalie leggings/skirt are worn on my Maitreya Lara body using the Omega System hud. These can be worn as just a skirt, leggings, or both. And they are available for Maitreya Lara, Slink Physique, and TMP. Pick them up at the Apply Me event. My comfy tank top is a new release from Maitreya at the main store. I chose to compliment this outfit with Ingenue Astrid heels in a matching color.
Lamb just sent out a notice that she will start doing monthly group gifts again. This month is the Dissolved Girl hair fat pack. The in world group has a small L$100 fee to join. Totally worth it. My skin is by Glam Affair from the last Fifty Linden Friday. The sitting poses are the latest pose pack from Kirin and can be found at Kustom 9. I used them in a relaxed casual setting. You can find Carolina Sauterau of Kirin looking super cute in her pictures.

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.
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.

It is amazing that I can get anything done with these two loving all over each other. They really are best friends. Yet, I was able to bake an apple pie and about to get laundry going. These new Apple Fall pieces can be found at The Chapter Four. What I admire most about Apple Fall’s work is the attention to detail. If you look at the bottom of the pitchers you will find the reflection of those 2 rose petals and the wire. Even the scale has reflections on the glass. The hot apple pie steams realistically. You can almost smell the fresh baked pie.

I was over at the Geeks ‘n’ Nerds event checking out the sim. The rezzing point is in a cool underground subway. As I came up I walked around and checked out the Back to the Future area. I stopped to get my picture taken next to the Delorean while pretending I was shocked. Scripts are off so it was a little hard to make a surprised face. IKR! Then I strolled over to this newspaper stand. These nerdy little guys kept telling me to buy the paper or get out of there. The one even gave me the hand. Whatever nerdy boys.
The one thing that I knew I wanted was The Secret Store’s Luna Preppy Cardigan. Maylee Oh’s clothing is superior. The cardigan actually looks knitted, the buttons and pockets are attached and not just drawn on, the wrinkles are well done, and I could wear it with another brand’s skirt. After picking up my new cardigan, I came home to blog on my new BOOM Super Magical Portable Internet Machine. This rare octo internet machine is an attachment and has some really nice poses. However, in the picture I have it rezzed on the floor and used my new !bang pose. While blogging I stopped to think about why I had so many things plugged into this outlet. And where are those things? And why is it so close to the fire?
