Shoetopia – Adjunct

Shoetopia – a veritable shoe heaven, will open its pearly gates to indulge your soles November 15th, 2013.  The sim design indeed is heavenly, a Utopia for shoe lovers.  Spread out in an open layout of two sims, with angelic archways and crystal blue skies, you are among the clouds as you venture through the shoe heaven.

At the heart of the event is SOLES4SOULS, the events charity of choice.  A bit about the charity:

Soles4Souls is a global not-for-profit institution dedicated to fighting the devastating impact and perpetuation of poverty.  The organization advances its anti-poverty mission by collecting new and used shoes and clothes from individuals, schools, faith-based institutions, civic organizations and corporate partners, then distributing those shoes and clothes both via direct donations to people in need and by provisioning qualified micro-enterprise programs designed to create jobs in poor and disadvantaged communities.  Based in Nashville, Tennessee, Soles4Souls is committed to the highest standards of operating and governance, and holds a four-star rating with Charity Navigator.

With the devastating damage in the Philippines and Southeast Asia, each participating designer will be offering up an item that will see 100% of its proceeds go directly to Soles4Souls, which is already hard at work aiding this catastrophic time.

The event is more than just a shopping spree, it is for a cause, and I hope that you will be a part of that.

My shoes are the exclusive item from ADJUNCT.  This highly detailed, exceptional penny loafer comes in three colors and an option for socks.  In addition ADJUNCT creator Josh Latham aka myvegancookbook has created a set of lively colored fun socks for you to add to your closet.

I wore penny loafers all through high school, even put the shiny copper penny in the tongue, so when I saw these I had to have them.  The leather quality is exceptional, just enough shine and a soft feel.  The fit is superb and no adjustments were required, the shoe is fantastic.  Add it to your collection for casual or formal needs.

Heading on over to The Men’s Department, the newest creation from Isla Gealach is a must have.  Cheeky Pea’s Nolan Foosball Table’s are a must have for any recreation room, bar or fun area.  Highly detailed materials enabled mesh, the foosball tables come in two different styles of wood, bare and painted as well as PG and Adult.  The Adult brings a whole new meaning to GOAL!

Also at TMD, MESHWORX has created these spicy pin – up covered Infinity tables and chairs.  Beautifully textured, smooth and minimalist with sexy pin – up girls decorating the surfaces, very unique and without saying a must buy!

Off to Collabor88 you will find the gorgeously spacious Industrial Loft from Barnesworth Anubis.  Barnes never fails to create something spectacular, detailed and unique.  I love the open bay windows that lead to a spacious patio.  The loft is very roomy and was perfect for a recreational room at Chez Raynier.  

FLOORPLAN brings fun to your home decor yet again at Collabor88 with the Eiffel Tower Marquee.  Multi-texture change on touch, beautiful detailing, this was a must have for my place as I am of French decent.  Its rather adorable and I plan to put it in little Raynier’s room when the time comes.

Ring a ding ding, time for doorbells!  Intrigue Company has doorbells for your decor needs this round of Collabor88.  I was a bit stumped at first where to place them, but the fireplace area was just perfect for them to be displayed.  In multiple metals, and three different styles these doorbells have tons of detail packed into them.  Put them at your door or use them in unique ways, they are truly “chiming”!

Additional non-event items can be found in the credits, have a great day!

Collabor88 Halloween

The 8th is here and that brings Collabor88 goodness!  Full of spooktacular items and amazing Fall additions to your SLife, this round is great as always.

Though the event is grand I had to get small for these adorable cat pajamas from the pajama queen herself, Katharine McGinnis, Intrigue Co.  As always the pajamas have fun stitched right into them from head to slipper and you can get them in a wide variety of sizes including ToddleeDoo.  This is my first time being a ToddleeDoo size and I had a great time being a little.

The door I stand in front of for my treats is Trompe Loeil’s Collabor88 new addition and it is magnificent.  I will bring more coverage of it later, to let you see more of the details.

Love Is…

Have you seen the new release from Sway’s?  The cloud shelves are absolutely wonderful!  With two styles, one that has books and knick knacks, the other empty, you can do quite a bit with these great shelves.  I found the empty shelf to be perfect for storing my growing Intrigue Co. Plushie Pals collection!

Seven Emporium released love themed decor last Friday and they are just perfect for adding a touch of love to your home or shop.  I felt the two new releases went together rather well and put them up together in our house to brighten up the place we call home.

Today is the last day of the September round of the Arcade Gacha Event, so be sure to get on over there before it shuts its doors!

We’ll Ride On Bicycles

The Autumn season has brought about so many events, I can’t keep up!  What a grand adventure it has been through, learning of new events, new designers, seeing amazing creations from the designers we love, and creators coming back from hiatus to give us new things to enjoy.

It certainly has been a busy month, and the reprieve into my imagination has been a welcome one to de-stress and keep connected to my inner child.

Many times I have an idea for a photo and end up going a different route, or I struggled to get it just how I envision it, however the one below came to me and worked out just how I planned.  It started with the search for a rainbow pwnie named Dash.  It is no secret I seek out all rainbow things for my beloved Gabriella.  If it is rainbow, I am likely going to try to get it, buy it, empty my pockets of all coinage to get it to give to her.  Such was the case with this round of the Arcade and the lovely whimsical pwnies from silentsparrow.

Once Dash was achieved, I had quite a few of his friends, and they decided I needed to be taken on an adventure with other companions.  That journey had a soundtrack which led off with one of my favorite songs that always makes me think of my better half.  (I have linked the song below in case you are curious)

“We’ll sleep on roof tops 
We’ll ride on bicycles 
Baby, we’ll get married 
Don’t you want to, sweetie?”

Designers United opened at midnight last night and will run until October 4th.  The theme is Surrealism, and wow did the designers do a great job of it!  My hair is from INK and I am loving the style, it was perfect for my adventure.

My brilliantly created boots are from Valiant which is one of the first shops I used to frequent when I first began my adventures in SecondLife.  When designer Wavie Haller began creating new mesh items for the Valiant & Co. brand I was ecstatic!  The boots are brilliant, with a massive texture HUD that gives you limitless possibilities.  You can grab these at the Liaison Collaborative now, as well as the skin I am wearing from his skin line [K]lean.  This is Adrian and he is a bit more mature than the prior Tyler release, with lovely tonality and exceptional quality.  I had not taken Tyler off since getting it, but Adrian is even more perfect for my permanent look.

I hope you are enjoying this event filled month and were able to find all those rares and wonders that make your SLife even more fun.

The Arcade September – Intrigue Co. Puppy Pals

Intrigue Co. ALWAYS creates the most amazing items for the Arcade.  The September 1 Year Birthday round of the Arcade is no exception!  Katharine McGinnis is the brilliant creative mind behind Intrigue Co. and she has been someone that I admire for her whimsical, playful items.

When I first started out in SecondLife I stumbled upon her shop looking for feline ears and wound up with tons of pajamas and fun items for my tiny little home at the time.  Through the years I have been absolutely in awe of what she creates, each and every new creation topping the last which is saying a lot!

September 1st the Arcade September round will open and you can get these adorable puppy pals from Intrigue Co.  Do not be surprised if you see an imprint of my hand on the machine because I seriously played it more times than I can count to get nearly the entire collection.  I really love the little Gabby the Lab, isn’t she adorable! There isn’t  Chance plushie but there is a Lucky the Dalmatian and my name does mean luck so in the right hand corner of my image, you will see the little Gabby & Lucky snuggling.  Hey, what can I say, I’m a huge romantic geek and couldn’t resist!

Below you will find the official Intrigue Co. Puppy Pals advertisement which shows you every single puppy and all the wonderful accessories that you can get for them.  Each puppy has a little poem about itself when you click it and they are so detailed I truly am in love with them, and I am a cat person!  The carrier is hud controlled to change its color, I mean really, how amazing is that.

The Arcade 1 Year Birthday round begins on September 1st, 2013.  Please visit the official Arcade blog it is chock full of useful information from the awesome countdown to opening day to the wonderful shoppers guide.  Good luck, I hope you get all the fun puppies that you desire!

What Next

Whimsical Creations


Whimsical creations abound  this month at Collabor88’s 2nd birthday bash!  They all went rather nicely on this great wagon table from encore featured at this month’s Men’s Department.

The Bunny and Stag chairs are creations from Tableau Vivant who never fail to give life like detail in the creations.  Contraption always amazes and pushes the envelope of creativity with extraordinary devices and mechanisms to ooh and aww over.  The queen of whimsy herself Intrigue Co brings old time games with perfectly detailed magic.

The encore wagon table at TMD is great fun, with steel rollers and beautiful golden wood, I truly can’t see it not fitting the needs of every home, shop and the like.

Less than 7 hours to go, and the doors to this huge 2nd birthday Collabor88 will be opening up at Midnight SLT, are you ready?

Past Perfect

Intrigue Co. has just released a really fun blast from the past pretty darn hilariously awesome new addition; Pixel pets!  Little computerized, yes functional pocket pals to wear and enjoy!  Talk about amazing right?!  They will be available for this June round of collabor88!

It made me think of toys of the past, when times were simpler and I had dreams of owning a ranch, raising cattle and growing all the things.  I went to this great new sim to me, GOSH! and reminisced about those times in my childhood.  I even encountered a friendly horse that would not get out of my shot, at one time he was practically eating my hair.  It was quite humorous!

Sometimes its good to get introspective and get your nostalgia on.  I encourage you to do the same, maybe pick up one of these adorable Intrigue Co. Pixel Pets, they come in wolf, meow and hiss.  Collect all three!

I am wearing a refresh of Mathieu from Belleza, available for Belleza Best Buys.  from June 7th 0:00  up to June 9th 23:59!

Have a great rest of your week and a grand weekend.
