Winding Down

I hope everyone had a great Christmas and that Santa was good to you all!

If not, and you are in the position to hand out a few last minute gifts, the Arcade runs for just three more days, so you have a small window left to grab some great holiday and winter inspired goodies. I have had a blast this round, using all of my new finds to create some pretty scenes and I know that I, for one, can’t wait until the spring edition opens!

Bello!

Bello!

Though the month of July has been super busy for me, I promise you guys that I am not MIA! In fact, things should be clearing up for me soon and I’ll be back in full posting mode shortly!

In the meantime, I was able to see the Minion Movie (since I adore them just a little) and I loved it, and so I knew that I couldn’t not create a minion inspired outfit to show my love. So, I went all fan girl and rifled through my inventory for some old favorites, as well as new hair by Truth for a take on the center part hairstyle of Dave (my favorite little guy) and this new Bianca top by Tee*fy for Mix that came in this gorgeous yellow color and perfectly depicts the sunny shade of the minions.

Speaking of which, I only just discovered Mix recently and for those of you who aren’t familiar with it- it’s a HUD based shopping experience with an all-star cast of designers who feature either a new release, an exclusive release or a discounted item at their mainstore. You then wear the HUD, which has an easy to read color code, outlining where each store’s offering is categorized for that month. Mix starts on the 1st of each month, lasts the entire month and has no set theme, which means there is sure to be something for everyone.

You can buy the HUD on the marketplace here, or join the inworld group, which will send out a notice every 1st and 15th of the month containing the HUD.

Mayfair

Apple Fall has this amazing ‘Mayfair’ set out for the current round of the Arcade. Like his last ‘Paris’ set, I am loving the soft, vintage feel of the pieces that go beautifully with the oh-so coveted RARE Skybox. God only knows I had to play away my firstborn just to get it. But, it is so worth it! The Mayfair Skybox has three rooms off the main hallway- bathroom, bedroom and general living space. The textures are a little worn, a little vintage and super chic.

I finished furnishing my new bedroom with some more amazing pieces from the Arcade, including items from Second Spaces, Tres Blah and Pixel Mode. Really, if you haven’t managed to get in yet- keep trying! You can also cam-shop from the nearby Gatcha Galley sim as well!

I am also decked out new hair from Exile (for the Arcade!) and this new lazy Sunday inspired panty and tank set from Valentina E. Couture for the September round of fameshed. I thought it was a perfect match to lounge around the Mayfair suite. I love that it even comes with a robe that opens and closes with a simple chat command. Mesh is getting better and better every day.

The Arcade – September 2014

It’s so hard to believe that September is here and that fall is pretty much around the corner. Though the weather hasn’t started cooling off yet, it’s safe to say that fall is definitely among us, what with all the buzzing about the September (fall) round of the Arcade. With the big birthday round and the Arcade turning two this month, the designers that have been invited to participate have really knocked our socks off with some great new releases.

Though there weren’t as many apparel related items as I would have liked to see, I am nevertheless thrilled by the items up for grabs. One of my favorites this round, is the La Petite Joie Cafe Collection from 8f8. The build of the cafe itself is stunning. Warm, rich wood, amazing shadows and crisp textures. I especially love the skylight and how all of the windows can change between two version with just a click.

I spent two days decorating in and around my new cafe with some more of my favorite Arcade pieces. Well, as many as I could fit into one setting, that is. I even managed to squeeze in a few non-Arcade items as well, like this new release long modern sideboard from Molichino. With this being Aurelia’s first foray into furnishings, I must say I am suitably impressed by it and can’t wait to see what she comes up with next.
