The Mens Dept – Hemingway Dreams

March 5th brings us a new round of the Mens Department!  What a round it is too, with just about everything you need for a new look, a fresh set of accessories and furnishings.  I love the variety we get at TMD, it just feels like being a kid in a candy store.

Hemingway Dreams

I am wearing this great jacket from villena, which comes in male AND female sizing!  A great texture HUD is included for the scarf and it also comes in moss.

You likely know by now I love facial hair, and the more realistic to how I like it in real life the better.  This TMD round FRUK has a great skin line for us, but they also put out this FREE facial hair.

Insufferable Dastard is my choice for eyes for mine are aqua and it is not the easiest shade to find.  This round they are offering the Glare series in many different colors to suit your eye needs.

Uw.st joins the TMD family this round bringing two hairstyles this month.  I am wearing the Seth, it has a nice swept back motion but I did have to wear a hairbase with it or it was a bit too far back for my shapes forehead.  Keep this in mind when you try the demo so that you can get the feel of  how it will lay on your avatars skull.

K_gs is back with a very stylish set of glasses.  I am a huge fan of K_gs for eyewear because the creator has so many options, from changing the texture of the frames to the lenses and that makes it so versatile for the wearer to go sunglasses or reading glasses with each set.  This particular pair is very much like my 2nd pair of glasses I wear in real life so it was a must have.

HANDverk has some great chairs and home accessories this round.  I am only showing the Swan chairs in red and white but there is a nice brown available also.  The side table with lamp and coffee made me think of Hemingway for some reason thus my blog post title.  Great detail to add to any home, shop or whathaveya!

These great animal prints are from vespertine which never fails to create fun items for your SLife.  I really love the cat one the most, I am a cat lover after-all   You really do need to see these in person, they have such great detail and the color palette’s are divine.

That’s all I have for you today, hopefully if I can find some energy later I’ll bring you a bit more of the great items from TMD.  Have a great week!

Man Space

The Men’s Department this round is a great place to get the guys in your life awesome Valentine’s Day gifts.  You know it can be hard to shop for dudes, especially if they are not very into clothes.  This is an aspect of The Men’s Department that I really like, it’s not all about clothes!  You have a wide array of decor and furnishings for your house.  In this case I made a small man space with all TMD items to give you an idea of the items you can put on your list for that special guy or gal in your life.  Again, another part of the TMD that I love, it’s not just for the dudes!

Isla Gaelach of Cheeky Pea created the amazing MapMe Antigue letters for this round and I gotta tell ya, mesh letters with map roads upon them, badass!  They also come in the non-antique.

floorplan has two items to offer this TMD and one is a must have for all Sci Fi and 80’s fans.  The Flux Capacitor!  It has beautiful detail and it flashes with subtle strobe light.  Also the oh deer wall decor, which I really like, the antlers are just perfect.

Grab a seat in the new Shell chairs from HANDverk, the detail is fabulous.

Not sure what to wear for Valentine’s day, go grab this great shirt/tie/cardigan ensemble from Pumpkin.  Two versions, one with hearts on the shirt and one in plain white.  Go for the hearts, that special someone will love them!

Don’t like to be perfectly shaved, me either, but clean up a bit more for Valentine’s day, especially around the mouth, makes that kiss a helluvalot better!  The jawline beards from bleak are perfect for this and come in dark and light.

Couple the cardigan with this modern looking metallic ring from KOSH, it has a matching necklace too.

Snatch up the new poses from POSEOLOGY, they work fabulously with mesh items!

Enjoy this round of TMD and have a great week!

HANDverk released two beautiful skyboxes that I am thoroughly impressed with.

The  Longchamp skybox is HANDverk’s first store release of 2013 available in the single and double.  The Longchamp is a simple, elegant, all mesh skybox for either residential or commercial use. It is ultra low prim and the single size can fit on as small as a 512 sq.m. parcel.

What immediately came to mind when I rezzed the skyboxes on our sim was that it could be so many different things! I will be using it for a library/study as well as a vacation apartment.  You can utilize it in so many ways and at the low prim count it is sure to appeal to many different needs.

Going with the study first, I packed it full of Dutchie furniture, wanting to highlight the elegant spaciousness of the skybox itself and to focus on the mesh version of the maledom chair that Dutchie has packed full of animations to enjoy.

As many of you already know, this weekend was GOS Boutique’s first release of this exceptional open toed line.  I dubbed it GOStastic Saturday, and sent Mrs. Raynier to buy all the fatpacks!  It was worth every single penny.  The shoes are exquisite but the added convenience of GOS’s fluid and fast new ONEtime skin matching hud makes it so the frustration is gone from wearing beautiful shoes.

Mrs. Raynier has always had a hard time matching her skin to her shoes, something always seeming off and her grumbling and cursing can be heard throughout our sim!  But those days are gone.  She loaded the hud up, hit configure, picked her Belleza skin, hit sync and wallah she was matched to perfection.

The photo below has absolutely NO Photoshopping done to the ankles or shoes.  The only place I used PS was to smooth out a line in the library stack and by the ceiling.  The shoes are that damn good!

For in depth coverage of the new GOS Boutique line, please check out the official blog and the great posts from my fellow lady bloggers Harlow Heslop Strawberry Singh.

Now if you will excuse me, I need to get my lovely wife stripped naked save for the shoes!
