A little Tantric action for ya.

I get a little giddy when I get to review something from Belle Belle because I always know I'm going to love it. I had seen the photo for the new Lucky Board gift before I was asked to review it, and I had already planned on stalking the board.

The Tantric Lovin' gift is so so cute! A pretty little "snowglobe," it's the perfect place to relax with somebody special and just get away from it all. So I grabbed my somebody special and forced him into posing with me. [Actually, I think he was making dinner as I moved us all around, but that's ok.]

Review - Belle Belle - Tantric Lovin

Coming in at 62 prims, it's filled with pillows and candles and I just love the pretty beadwork around the base. The inside of the globe has very light sparkly particles, so I set us up in a "space" type box along with some super cute stars I stumbled across in my inventory and now can't stop playing with.

But of course the best thing about the globe is that it's menu driven, with 4 poses for you and your special someone. When you first click on it, choose the option to Rez Hearts. That will put the poseball hearts outside of the globe so you can easily sit before moving inside.

I did get a comment out of that last pose. "Flexible!" Hehe, yes.

While you're out stalking the Lucky Board at Belle Belle to get this fabulous gift, be sure you also hit up the Midnight Mania board. I think that the Luna set is almost complete, and I know I can't wait to see what's coming up next because Leyla is ALWAYS super super generous in her gifting. And if I'm not mistaken, you can still look for the hunt gift from the Discovery Hunt, that amazing BBQ patio set I blogged before.

Have fun stalking the board! Believe me, it's worth it!

I'll probably get this wrong, but I think Noel is wearing a Cambridge shirt by Armidi, the winter coat by Alphamale, jeans by WMD, shoes by Soreal, skin by Redgrave, and hair by Naughty Designs. But who's really looking at the guy anyway, right? ;)

Doing Laundry the Belle Belle Way!

My furniture hunt has momentarily stalled because 1, my video card sucks and it's hard for me to get around to too many places, and 2, I'm not actually home all that often these days. :) But when I saw the new Laundry Set from Belle Belle, I *knew* I wanted it for my home! And lucky for me, I get to review it!!

[Please excuse my pics if they don't look as good as the actual set looks in the store. I try to up my settings for review pics and sometimes I'm not sure if that's as great as the items really look.]

Review - Belle Belle - Laundry set

92 prims of cuteness, this set is just the perfect little addition to your SL home. Everything is just adorably detailed, from the rack to dry your sweaters to the laundry tumbling inside the dryer. You can almost smell the fresh laundry scent!!

Along with the set comes a cute ironing board and an iron to hold.

Review - Belle Belle - Laundry set/ironing

What am I ironing? Well...I don't know. Curtains or something. :) It's just precious and I do SO love just cute things in SL that really are just for show but bring just a touch of realism to the SL home.

Speaking of realism, does clean laundry turn you on? Because if it does, this set is totally right for you.

Review - Belle Belle - Laundry set/animations

Huge thanks to my buddy Aldwyn for posing with me for this since I couldn't run 2 SL windows to bring in my male alt. Rylan, please don't shank me for making your man pose with me. LOL!!

The Belle Belle Laundry set is a combined 109 prims of laundry fun and goes for $490L. I think it's worth every prim and every $L if you love that cute home look. Be sure to hit up the Midnight Mania boards and check out all the other goodies at Belle Belle when you go to pick this up!

New Truth!

It's no big secret that I'm a huge fan of Truth Hawks and his hair designs. I would never have agreed to pose for his store if I wasn't. Along with being a fab hair designer, and a great clothing artist, he's also a pretty decent guy who takes a fair amount of ribbing from a bunch of us. :)

Truth is also quite tireless in his work and releases new items frequently. [Seriously man, take a break once in a while!] But I'm glad he works like he does, because he keeps us all in awesome new hair! His latest 2 are just cute cute cute for summer!

The Linda

Review - Truth - Linda

A mass of soft flippy waves, this hair is just too cute for words! It's exactly how I'd want my hair to be, if I could get it to be anything more than straight without the use of multiple styling tools and if I could stand short hair on myself. :) But I just loveeee it! $225L for a pack of colors, and believe me, it's totally worth it.

The Jess

Review - Truth - Jess

The Jess is a very posh style, sleek and feminine with an edge. I just adore the little bobby pins holding the side. And the best part of this style? It's FREE. Oh yes, you read that right. FREE. Amazing!! It's Truth's appreciation gift to customers and bloggers. Generous!! :-D

Be sure to head out to the store to pick these lovely styles - and many others - up soon!
