Peaceful Easy Feeling

We are past the midway point of the month of September and the amazing items keep coming!  Autumn is a time of calming down from Summer, making way to prepare for Wintertime.  It is my favorite season, the cool weather is a welcomed reprieve from the heat.  The rustle of leaves, a nice warm tea, and sitting on the porch at home is a memory I have from my childhood that will never fade.

The beautifully crafted rocking chairs below are from What Next and remind me of the rocking chairs mon Papa and mon Mama had on our back porch since I was born.  I had my own, a little version of the cherrywood of their larger chairs and we sat outside talking and enjoying the wonders of life and the simplicity of a lovely Autumn afternoon.

The chairs are available for Fifty Linden Friday, come snatch them up for some memories of your own.  The rest of the decor and house are from other events this month, check out the credits for more information.

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!

TMD January: Bulls-eye

After a rough week, I was due for some R&R.  I had fun lounging about and tossing some darts with my trusty sidekick Tiger!

These great items are all from the January round of The Men’s Department.  I think the theme is relaxation, at least that’s how it felt to me and we could all use some of that.  I hope your first weeks of 2013 are proving to be great!

Late Night On Maudlin Street

August continues to be very busy for events and covering them.  I may need a vacation after this week is over!  That or I seriously need a few clones.

I liked to add decor and furnishings to the house that catch my eye and add a realism to my environment.  For The Mens Dept, Kaz Nayar, brilliant mind behind PILOT created the Bridges Bar Cart.  It is mesh of course, and only 7 land impact!  One single item, and all that detail, not to mention at a ridiculously low price at TMD this month.  This piece is a particular favorite of mine due to the simple fact it is rather timeless.  I could have put it in a shot to cover some more vintage goodness, or  placed it in a VIP room of a club.  Versatile decor is what I have grown to expect but more so appreciate from PILOT.

You’ve been starin at my boots havent you?  Me too, they are pretty amazing.  New mesh J’s Studded Long boots by JD Gazov are a blast from my past with the style and studs, I had to have them.  With a simple easy menu to control the boot tops, you have options to have them straight, lowered or flopped down.  They come in several colors and fit like a glove.

Also, I have some news to share.  You can now find my posts on Style Academy.  Thank you Teshan Wycliffe for the warm welcome.  

Now, off to get some groceries for a late afternoon lunch!

The Mens Dept-August: I Promise You I Will

August 2012 has been the busiest month of my SecondLife!  How many events do we have going right now and more to come when the 8th rolls around.  The Mens Dept August collection is just superb.  This is still my favorite event as it offers a little bit of everything for the men yet versatile enough to have many unisex items for everyone to enjoy.

One creator that I discovered about a month ago has really impressed me from day one.  Tegan Sara of floorplan creates the type of home decor and furnishings that I just adore.  From fun colored dressers to catchy little wall message boards, I have had a great time decorating with floorplan items.  You can get an amazing steal of a deal at The Mens Dept this month from floorplan, and Tegan just added an additional color set.

I am very fond of Cracked Mirror’s mens line.  I made sure my shy genes were stuck in a vault so I could rave to her about the shirt and shorts she has out at The Mens Dept this round.  I love a short sleeved shirt, and one made of mesh, with proper rolled sleeves that do not bulk into your body or leave gaps of space, and a tie to boot, yeah Cracked you rocked this shirt hard lady and I’m gonna wear them till they have holes in them!

I coupled my ensemble with man items from FaMESHed another amazing event that I never miss.  I hope you are enjoying the amazing packed full of events month of August, stay tuned for more items from the grids fabulous event organizers and creators.

Please note that The Mens Dept moved next to the space they had in July.  You can follow my links to the new location!

Vintage Fair Preview-Captivity Poses, Epicosity & More: One day, I May Call Upon You To Do A Service For Me

Are you counting the minutes to Vintage Fair 2012?  Here is a sneak peek of an amazing pose prop from Captivity Poses.  Always indeed captivating, Captivity Co. poses bring to life real world items that amplify any photograph.  This vintage noir chair is timeless and so well detailed, I’m going to keep it in the house permanently.  Epicosity has a couple full suit outfits for Vintage Fair, which we all know the more male items the better!  This mesh suit is my favorite of the offered items, strikingly classic, and equally timeless item to have in your possession.  There’s nothing like a well dressed man.

The 70s Retro Skybox from %Percent Furniture & Lighting is partial mesh and very posh!  I added a bit of  a study flare to it with these beautiful silent memories frames from vespertine, the lush roses from Hanaya, and the art deco style light and poster from MELU DECO all available at Vintage Fair tomorrow at 4pm SLT.
