{ Somewhere Beyond the Sea } NEWness at TLC!

“Somewhere beyond the sea
Somewhere waiting for me
My lover stands on golden sands
And watches the ships that go sailin’
Somewhere beyond the sea
She’s there watching for me
If I could fly like birds on high
Then straight to her arms
I’d go sailing…”BytheSea_FINAL

{ My Secret Budoir }

Budoir_FINAL

This was one of those photos that was supposed to get done weeks ago and got put off a bit to meet other deadlines but instead of skipping it altogether I really wanted to make it happen.. better late than never.  It was about time to do something a little sexy and feminine…One by one I had collected each piece and once I found this lovely daybed from Scarlet Creative, which is out now at The Liaison Collaborative, I knew it was meant to be.  The picture just came together on it’s own.  A perfect little vintage hideaway… welcome to my (not so) Secret Budoir!

{ 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!

{ All the presents are unwrapped but one… }

Gynoid-full_FINAL

So the hustle and bustle of the holidays is finally over.. the family has all gone home.. the gifts have all been opened… or have they?   Forget the decorations that need to come down, save the cookies for later, there is a special treat that needs nibbling, one last kiss under the mistletoe, one last present that needs unwrapping… and she is waiting.

{ A Morning without Coffee is like a Day without Sunshine }

MorningCoffee-full_FINAL

 Life has had me pretty busy lately… all work and no play can make Trin a dull girl and we can’t be having that.  So sometimes it’s good to just stop, take a deep breath, and de-stress.  Anyone that knows me knows that I have an affinity to coffee (that’s a fancy way of saying, I love it… a lot 😛 ) and if I don’t get my morning coffee life can be pretty rough.  It’s therapeutic really.  So I think we can all agree, I should not be denied that simple pleasure.

MorningCoffee-close_FINAL

I’m also gonna throw out a few other tidbits about me as well, and why I chose this particular scene/theme… I am a girly girl, I love pink, and I love pajamas.  So there, I said it.  The cute new PJs are from Blacklace and naturally I would snag my favorite color. Perfect for lazing about in the early hours when procrastinating the day’s to-do list.  That’s something I’m oh-so good at.

MorningCoffee-vanity_FINAL

I went ahead and took the liberty to girly up this beautiful mesh house by Barnesworth Anubis and what better way to do that was to add the ultra feminine vanity set from Tres Blah at the Arcade!  This was the ONLY collection I got the complete set of at the Arcade and I’m so excited about it.  So detailed and well thought out.

 MorningCoffee-room_FINAL

Now if you don’t mind, I might just snuggle back under those comfy covers, daydream and snooze a while longer… The work is gonna have to wait for now.
