Goodbye (For Now)

Let us start with the bad news, shall we?

Today is going to be the last post I’m going to be doing for the next 7 months. I have finally been given a date for when I leave to work on a cruise liner as an Entertainment Staff member, and as such I shall be dedicating a lot of my time over the next 7 weeks to getting myself prepared emotionally as well as packing all my bits and pieces.

I just wanted to make this post today to thank all of you for having stuck with me over these past months whilst I found my feet and settled into blogging again. It was long overdue and I am extremely happy that my posting and images have been so well received from the Second Life community.

Now, whilst this sounds like a goodbye, it really isn’t! I shall be back. Albeit in 7 months, but I shall be back! I cannot wait to return and experience all of the fantastic releases that the creators on the grid will have dedicated hours to creating. Second Life will most definitely be a completely different place upon my return. That’s what I love about this virtual world. It’s always morphing and changing.

I shall see you all in May 2015! It’s been a blast.

Love,

Autumn.

Easy

Hey, everyone! I hope you’re having a great week so far!

I’ve been slightly AWOL over the past couple of days due to the release of The Sims 4, which I have been patiently waiting for ever since I heard of it’s release and tested an early version when I worked at Eurogamer in London during October 2013. I’m having lots of fun with it, and you can see what I’m getting up to in my game by heading over to my Sims Tumblr, or ‘Simblr’ as the community likes to call it. You can find it here!

Today’s blog post is a rehash of an outfit i’ve been wanting to blog for a while, when I was having my 90s-esque phase of looks a week or so back. I recieved a couple of new releases from Truth, as well as a lovely little shirt dress from Rowne for their Collabor88 release, and decided that these pieces worked extremely well with certain other items in the original look, and et voila! Here we are.

The pants, by Baiastice, and the bracelet (which I adore!) by Izzie’s are still available to pick up at The Dressing Room FUSION for super cheap! So head over and pick these beauties up whilst you have the chance.

If any of you are playing The Sims 4 as of late and have a tumblr page yourself, be sure to give me a follow! I’ll be back and forth between this and that blog over the next couple of weeks until I start to get bored of it. Ha!


 

 

Song of The Day

Autumn

Today’s post features a hat that I think I wear way too much, but whatever. There aren’t that many good hats in SL that are versatile with many styles of hair, so I latched onto this one when it came out a couple of years ago from Celoe, and proves to (as you all have seen) still be one of my favourite pieces. The glasses from Epoque and the bracelet from Amiari are also items I often wear around the grid, and you’ve probably noticed me featuring them in many of my posts lately.

I initially thought against blogging this look, because of this fact that I wear these items too often, but my blog isn’t directed at being specific to new releases at the moment, so I thought I’d share nonetheless.

This coat by Vive Nine Ryvolter, a late release at the Uber event comes in a fantastic array of fabric styles and patterns, and definitely worth the 400L price tag. It works perfectly with Celoe’s Kenya dress that was released for the Safari Chic round of Collabor88 earlier this summer.

Friday’s new Zoe heels in the colour Autumn are absolutely darling. Can you guess why I like them? I only recently picked up the SLink high feet, but I have been picking up so many beautiful shoes for them lately that I’m super happy I finally got around to getting them.

I figured that this outfit was about reusing things and adding a couple new items to it, so I headed back to my favourite sim, Mayfair, to take this picture outside the Irish pub! I’m a wee bit tipsy now, I tell you.

I hope you’re having a fantastic hump day, and thanks for stopping by!


Black is The Colour

I’m back with another Uber post!

I’ve been listening to The Walking Dead soundtrack today and wanted to do something high fashion but slightly grittier. The scene, from Wavie Haller of Consignment’s new shelter worked perfectly with this look, which features new items from Baiastice’s Sissy Pessoa, Maxi Gossamer, and also an old Collabor88 item from Maitreya; and in its entirety is brilliantly and lovingly created, complete with optional furniture. I noticed that Wavie included many little nods to The Walking Dead’s AMC show, which any of you die-hard fans (I like punning a lot lately) will notice if you look close enough.

Terminus, anyone?


Song of The Day

Chelsea

Today’s post was inspired by my friend from the UK and I chatting about British reality show, ‘Made in Chelsea’ which follows a group of wealthy young people throughout their lives in the ‘fancy’ quarter of London, documenting their dramas and relationships.

With Vive Nine’s new collection release yesterday, the new pieces available at the store seemed like a perfect opportunity to doll up and shoot a couple of city pictures. They have a plethora of new items available, ranging from shoes through to accessories, hair, and clothing galore. They’re situated in a fabulous Rodeo Drive-esque area, complete with other little boutique shops to check out whilst you’re there.

SLink also released a new updated for their mesh Physique body today. There had been a bug which made it look as if you’d been slashed across the throat, leaving your head bobbing around on its own, disconnected from the rest of the body. Siddean fixed this issue incredibly quickly, however, and I am now extremely happy to be using the newly updated HUD and skin options.


Song of The Day

Dr. Facilier

The Fantasy Collective’s theme this month is New Orleans, and as soon as I looked around at the wonderful creations this month I knew exactly what it was that I wanted to do a blog post on today: Disney.

There’s no princesses here, however. We’re heading on to The Other Side with a outfit inspired by Dr. Facilier, the Voodoo doctor.

Putting together this look actually proved to be quite difficult due to one teeny tiny annoying piece that seems to be hidden away in the darkest corners of the SL market- waistcoats. I think it’s a vest in American terminology, but those little things that men wear with three-piece suits. Dr. Facilier wears a purple one, but unless I wanted to wear a base clothing layer (impossible as I now wear SLink’s physique all the time) it wasn’t something I could do. ISON saved me at the last minute with their Razzle vest that I found on the Marketplace. Thank you, Harry Hyx!

Finally, I’d just like to add a little bit about these shoes. I was sent these a couple of weeks back by Bushu to review, but at the time didn’t have the SLink high feet. They’re materials enabled and are super cute, I’ve been wearing them around in their fabulous multitude of colours, but I thought a simple black worked well for this look, considering I don’t look as good in spats as the real Dr. Facilier does.

I hope you enjoy today’s look, I’m incredibly happy with how it turned out!
