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!


I’m Not The Only One

I haven’t heard much of Sam Smith’s music until recently as I’ve stopped listening to chart hits and moved into more indie pieces. But I have been a long time fan of Dianna Agron (Glee, The Family) and her beauty and acting talent, and upon hearing her involvement as the main character of a dishevelled housewife in Smith’s ‘I’m Not The Only One’ music video, I checked it out.

A song riddled with emotion, the video was beautifully shot. It inspired me to create my own look based on the video. I had trouble finding items that matched Agron’s outfit completely, so this is more of an ‘inspired by’ look than that of a replica. I hope you like it!
