{ dreaming } Gacha Garden Opens SOON!

“You know that place between sleep and awake;
that place where you can still remember dreaming?
That’s where I will always love you.
That’s where I will be waiting.”
~ Peter Pan ~FloraFauna_FINAL

The Gacha Garden is about to open its gates once again and welcome you in with an abundance of creativity and unique designs from many of your favorite creators around the grid!  I’m giving you a sneak peek at a few of my favorite items this round with a fantasy flair. If you weren’t able to check it out the last round, one thing that makes this event unique is that for those that love to play the gacha machines, you will be rewarded anytime you play 20 times on the same machine with a special exclusive prize called the “Seed of Inspiration” !  All machines are marked with the exclusive SOI (“Seed of Inspiration”) item as well as the commons and rares that you can win and collect.  As with other gachas, all items are NO COPY/TRANS so you can give away extras, trade them, or sell through various gacha groups and yardsales.

The Gacha Garden will open November 1st and run for the entire month, plenty of time for you to get on over and stock up on all the goodies that are available!  A great time to get an early start on Christmas shopping too!  See you there!

{ Give you what you like }

Please wrap your drunken arms around me
And I’ll let you call me yours tonight
Cause slightly broken’s just what I need
And if you give me what I want
Then I’ll give you what you like

Please tell me I’m your one and only
Or lie and say at least tonight
I’ve got a brand new cure for lonely
And if you give me what I want
Then I’ll give you what you like

When you turn off the lights
I get stars in my eyes
Is this love?
Maybe someday
So don’t turn on the lights
I’ll give you what you like

Emotions aren’t that hard to borrow
When was the word you never learned
And in a room of empty bottles
If you don’t give me what I want
Then you’ll get what you deserve

{ Fashion, Furniture and Fairytales, Oh MY! }

OneWord‘s back again this March (1st – 15th) with a theme of Fairytales, so time to summon your inner princess, snag your prince charming and come shopping!

oOo Studio has 2 NEW pose offerings for this event… a couples’ pose called “Perfect Fit” inspired by none other than Cinderella.  My lovely friend and fellow blogger, Charisma Jonesford, who also happens to be a huge Disney fan agreed to come pose for me and play the part of princess-in-the-making.  So big thank you for your help, my dear! ❤

perfectfit_FINAL

I was fortunate that Shiny Shabby has just opened and was full of great finds to decorate up this little cottage fitting of a fairytale. If you love vintage style decor and fashion, you will love this event!  Going on from now until March 15th.

The second offering from Ola for OneWord is a set of regal sitting poses called “Majesty”, perfect for all those mesh gowns with full skirts that make sitting like a lady a royal pain in the arse.  The set contains 8 poses in various sits and arm/hand positions.

May you shop happily ever after!

{ It’s my party and I’ll cry if I want to }

It’s the best day… It’s the worst day.  Yep.. it’s my birthday.  In RL that is, and I’ve gotten to that point where each year is more bittersweet than the last.  Where the number betrays me because my mind still tells me I’m 25 yet standing next to my growing kids in a grocery store gives me away.  (“Oh you mean those kids? No, they’re not mine. haha!”) I’ve actually NOT gotten carded buying alcohol *gasp* these days.  And hell yes, I’m offended!  D:  So yup, I’m gonna pout and throw myself a little birthday pity party via my photos today.  😛

And it’s ok, you can poke fun at me, the ol’ lady who just turned 38, too! 😉 ❤

Birthday

{ Eat, drink and be merry }

I’ve been a fan of medieval history and the renaissance for years, enamored with the pageantry and chivalry, the poetry and the art.  It’s all pretty fascinating.  This also explains my obsession with shows like Game of Thrones or The Tudors.  In fact, the very first time I ever tried to roleplay in Second Life was on the medieval sim of Avalon.  I admit it didn’t last too long, but I’ve always appreciated the RPing community in SL and can definitely see the draw for people to play.

Thanks to events like We ❤ Roleplay and the Fantasy Gacha Carnival, you now have places to shop featuring some of the best RP content creators offering new items monthly!  I hadn’t ever been to the Fantasy Gacha Carnival before and was pleasantly surprised at all the beautiful creations.  Being a gacha event, it’s definitely a money-sucker, but if you’re determined you can come out with some pretty amazing stuff.  I was inspired by so many of the things I saw, my brain was bursting with ideas.  In addition this round of We ❤ Roleplay was chocked full of awesome designs.  I had to visit the Linden ATM before my trip was done.

Medieval-full_FINAL

The photos I have done here were inspired by and centered around the [bauwerk] Banquet table that is available at the Fantasy Gacha Carnival.  I imagined a grand castle banquet hall lit with torches and candlelight, adorned in tapestries and banners, a table full with bountiful feast and the more I shopped, the more it came together.  {Junbug}‘s lovely period dress from We ❤ Roleplay was the perfect clothing choice for such a merry feast.

Medieval-feast_FINAL

One item that I want to show off to you that isn’t from either event, however, is this gorgeous necklace from an up and coming store called Empyrean Forge.  The details and texturing are very well done, and I’m pretty picky about my mesh.  And definitely about my jewelry.  So I was quite impressed with this piece and looking forward to seeing more from them.  They have a few items out on marketplace currently and  I’ve been told many more to come in the next several weeks.

Medieval-Face_FINAL

I may not be a hardcore RPer but you don’t have to be to enjoy all these goodies.  For me it’s just about imagination and playing dress up from time to time.

Now… LET US FEAST!
