Collabor88 January 2013!

That 8th sneaked up on me this new year, but it has proven to be a tremendously impressive Collabor88 thus far!  Kicking off 2013, the blogger team of Collabor88 were honored with creating this months palette for the designers.  With rich emeralds, golds and hues of copper and soft woods, it definitely has a crisp new feel to it which is just perfect for a new beginning.

I was very pleased to see a lovely skybox by PILOT this round which I am leaving on my sim for good.  The simplicity of it is just perfect and the beamed ceiling adds something completely fresh yet classic to the structure.  The tones are warm, inviting and offer a great canvas to brighten it up or keep it tranquil.  Hardwood floors and bay windows add to the crisp clean feel, making this a structure with endless possibilities.

Collabor88 January

Cheeky Pea creative genius Isla Gaelach never ceases to impress me with her furnishings and decor.  The Ansel set for Collabor88 is inline with this lovely fresh, crisp feel for the new year.  With an emphasis on lighting, subtle to charming, the tonal qualities of the furnishings and decor truly bring to mind an Earthen feel, which for me equals cozy and safe.  The exceptionally detailed atrium is rather mesmerizing and brings life to this room in a rather magical way.  Rustic tables to place old well worn and loved books, candles and the like speak of a home that is lived in rather than a museum to just admire.    The seating come in two types; PG & ADULT, and each packed with tons of smooth lush animations.   Original mesh at its absolute best, a staple in Cheeky Pea creations.

My favorite item from this round of Collabor88 is the Intrigue Co.’s Oz mobile.  The rainbow makes me think of my Gabriella, and the whimsical quality simply gave me a reason to grin.  I will be relocating the mobile to a very special room that is being decorated this month for a very special collaboration between Gabriella and myself.  More on that in the weeks to come!

Have a wonderful week and be sure to set aside some time to shop this months Collabor88.

My Own Prison

Praising The Men’s Dept. is an easy task.  The designers have come out and presented the most amazing items, from clothing to accessories, poses, buildings and decor.  One of those outstanding items is this prison set with poses from Lithium.  It comes in two types, with poses and without.

You have likely heard the buzz about Belleza’s new Dylan skin, preview featured at the Mens Dept.  For $750L you get the Dylan skin in sunkissed, with and without hairbase.  The skin has one of the nicest male noses I have seen on the grid.  The Mens Dept is an event that can be utilitized to easily make-over a new avatar, an avatar that needs a little sprucing up or your own look if you are seeking a change.  You will save money and get a great deal of amazing items.

Below is Chase.  He rezzed a day ago and approximately $3,000L he is all geared up and ready to go make his mark on the grid.  There is a little bit of everything available at the Mens Dept, no matter your fashion taste, take a look you will likely find something you will be happy to add to your inventory.
