Beachy Keen!

Oh Janie Marlowe, how you spoil me. No, seriously, she does. There is so much newness today at Jane, I hardly know where to start! So I'll start with my favorite out of all the new releases today, the Blossom dress.

Style - Beachy Keen

Do you love it? I certainly do! A nice slip style dress, the floral embroidery makes me homesick. For my second home, I should say, down near San Antonio, Texas, where most of my family lives and I spent almost every weekend down there growing up. It just looks like something I'd buy while on vacation and shopping in El Mercado. I'm wearing it in Milk, and underneath I'm wearing one of the new Layering Tees from Jane. I have been looking all over for plain baby tee style shirts in SL, and now here they are! You can pick up your pack for just $50L for Sheer Madness today!

I could go on and on about how much I love Jane, but truthfully, you just need to get up and go over there yourself to pick up all the new goodies. ♥

Sweet Eden

I simply love Evangeline Miles. I do. I make no secret of it. As sweet as she is talented, she's been one of my favorite designers for years and probably one of the few people in Second Life that could get me to think, "I could totally rock these wings with jeans." Her latest creation from Evie's Closet, Eden, makes me so happy, I could almost consider becoming a faerie full time.

Style - Sweet Eden

Isn't this the sweetest little outfit?? Eden is a great petal inspired babydoll dress that comes with cute stockings that lace up on the tops, pretty flats that I know will find their way into my regular wardrobe, some lovely wings, and a little stemmed hat. I'm wearing it in Peony, a rich hot pink, and there are other colors to choose from as well.

If you see me fluttering around in this outfit for the next week, blame Evie. It's totally her fault. ♥

Garden City Relief

When the horrible news of the earthquake in New Zealand came in, several creators sprung into action, as they tend to do. We might not be able to be there physically for those who need help, but never let it be said that Second Lifers can't raise a ton of money for charity when we need to! The Garden City Relief event started a few days ago, and there are some amazing items there! All proceeds go 100% to the charity to help the people in New Zealand.

Style - Garden City Relief

I picked up this In Bloom dress from AddiCt, and these NZ Paua Coral Bracelets from MOOD at the event. I know that they probably weren't designed to go together, but the colors blend SO well together, all peachy and warm, that you can't really buy one without buying the other. I'm also wearing the In Bloom eye makeup in Dahlia by cheLLe. You can't see it really well in my photo, but it's a soft peach color with a splash of lavender underneath. There are 6 shadows in the package, all of them bright and lovely.

Garden City Relief is happening until March 5th. Go out there, buy some pretties, and contribute to a wonderful cause!

I love bluebonnets in the spring

So like I said in my last post [god, I am slow lately!], Funky Junk came out with a house that is very near and dear to me. Why? Well, for one, it's based off an idea I showed to Funky Junk creator Ulaa Coronet, and she totally put her own spin on it and made it ten times better than I imagined. And two, she named it after my sim - Bluebonnet!

Style - Bluebonnet House

Gorgeous, right? It features a wide porch [necessary because I MUST have a place to drink my sweet tea!], two balconies, and a good sized patio. Inside, it has JUST the right amount of rooms - living room, kitchen, bedroom and bathroom. There's also a little area that you could do pretty much anything with.

Check out the pics of the inside!
[You might want to go to each pic's Flickr page to view them bigger.]

The living room/front entry way.

Spacious kitchen.

Upstairs area - I turned it into a reading nook!

Style - Bluebonnet upstairs/reading area

Bathroom. [Could easily be a small bedroom if you don't get down with bathrooms in SL.]

Style - Bluebonnet Bathroom

Bright and cheery bedroom! My favorite room in the house!

Style - Bluebonnet bedroom

The Bluebonnet house is 267 prims and is a 17x29 footprint. It is copy/mod, so you can mod away to your heart's content to make it fit your style better. But of course, this is exactly MY style, so I didn't have to do anything to it except fill it with furniture. :) Head over to Funky Junk and rez a demo! You will just fall in love with it!

There's no way I could possibly name all the furniture/accessories I've used in this house, but here are a few of the stores where you can shop for great home/garden things!

Livin' La Vida Pink!

Are you as much as a prefab addict as I am? I simply cannot resist when I see a little house or skybox that I like! When Funky Junk owner Ulaa Coronet decided to bring out one of her best selling homes in pink for Valentine's Day, and then slapped a $50L tag on it... well, you can imagine how excited I was!

Style - Livin' La Vida Pink - front

Style - Livin' La Vida Pink - inside

Eeee! It's so cute! This is a recolor of her Quaint home, so it's named My Quaint Valentine. I could just squeal over the cuteness, but you probably want details, am I right? This house has a 6 by 16 footprint and is 72 prims. Ulaa is awesome [and I don't say that just because she's my partner!] and she's included some matching accessories - table, chairs, texture change rug, fireplace facade with the flower basket, and a window flower box. Altogether, it comes out to just 132 prims! And of course you can not use the accessories, if you don't want to. The house is copy only, no mod and no transfer. For only $50L, it is a heck of a deal!

Go to Funky Junk now!! This deal is only available through Valentine's Day. I'll be showing you another of the new homes from Funky Junk that is near and dear to my heart later this week, so keep an eye out!

I can't name all the furniture that I put into this house, aside from the accessories that are included, but here are some of the stores where you can go shop for some of what is shown:

Dance It Out!

Do you watch Grey's Anatomy? Sometimes the girls [and guys] dance it out after an especially hard day. Just put on the music and DANCE. This is something I've done for years and I recommend it highly. If you head over to Belle Belle today, you can pick up something to help you dance it out, too!

Style - Dance It Out

Belle Belle has been doing a Valentine's week type thing and every day there's something new for just $50L. I love a great deal, don't you? Today's item is the Love FM radio, and oh, is it ever cute! It's pre-programmed with several radio stations that you can listen to on your land, and of course if you have a favorite stream, you can add it to the radio. I had to deed it to my land group to get it to change my radio, but it was super easy. Once I got it set up, I was ready to dance it out!

Head over to Belle Belle and get your radio. Even if you don't use it for changing streams, it's still cute for your home decorating!

I ♥ Pink

I'll admit it. I'm in love. Just the very sight of my love makes me go soft and fuzzy hearted. I want to cuddle up with my love and just sit in bliss. I look forward to Valentine's Day because it means I'm surrounded in my love. I'm talking about the color pink, of course. What did you think I meant?

Style - I ♥ Pink!

If you haven't been to the I ♥ Originals fair yet, then you really really need to go! You can pick up this oh-so-sweet Twiggy dress from one of my favorite stores, Ingenue. This color is called - what else? - Valentine! But there are other colors as well, if pink isn't your thing. [Ingenue at the fair]

Also at the fair, I picked up this gorgeous Kennedy necklace in pink by Caroline's Jewelry. It's part of a really inexpensive set that includes earrings, brooch, and ring as well. I love Caroline's so much. [Caroline's at the fair]

If you head on over to G Field, there's a little hunt going on! Six items are free, such as this Heart Bag I'm carrying. There's one in red, too! The Heart Flats are in the hunt, but are $30L, and there are two pairs to find. There are also two items for $50L each in the hunt, and honey, let me tell you. You WANT to find them. But if you're busy, you can buy all 10 hunt items for $200L at the front of the store. Thank you, Cerberus!!

I have to go roll around in more pink goodness now. God, I love Valentine's Day.

In The Garden

So much lovely in SL lately and I have so many things to show. But Sophia stopped over earlier wearing the most adorable dress. She told me I had to get it, and you know what? She was totally right.

Style - In The Garden

Ta Fleur by Couverture is just a spring queen's dream. A mass of ruffly, frilly, girly goodness that makes you feel like twirling around and throwing flower petals in the air. I'm utterly in love with it, so if you see me in it for the rest of the week, well...can you blame me? Couverture is one of those stores that flies under the radar most of the time, but really, it has some of the most gorgeous girly girl clothes on the grid. Go check it out!

She's A Doll

I'm a huge fan of the ballet. Just adore it! Coppélia is a nice ballet about a life sized doll. When I put on the new Coppelia gown from Evie's Closet - well, I felt just like a doll come to life!

Style - She's a Doll - cape

This photo shows the lovely Coppelia Cape that goes with the gown. It reminds me of fairy tale girls who wear a cape to run through the forest to either get away from something, or to run to save someone. Honestly, I wish capes would come back into mainstream fashion because I think there's something just so elegant about them.

But the rest of the's a marvel.

Style - She's a Doll - full length

It's dramatic and flowy and just oh so gorgeous. The back is low cut and has corset ribbons across your bare back. I'm wearing Coppelia in Sea Note, a luscious and rich blue, and it also comes in 5 other wonderful colors. You NEED this gown. It's so amazing, I didn't even need jewelry with it.

I'm going to go pretend to be in a fairy tale. You should get yourself to Evie's Closet to buy this gown today!! Right now! Go!
