French music is one of those things in life that I don’t fully understand, yet I feel utterly inspired by its sounds and vibes. Today’s post is inspired by one of my favorite songs from the French band POOM called Qui es-tu? (which means “who are you?”). Enjoy! ❤ Continue reading

CATWA Amy

CATWA Amy Head

Amy was the first doll head released by Catwa during June. Amy is absolutely adorable and lovely and besides her dolly look, she can also be worn more casually with the right appliers. In today’s vlog I will be showing most of Amy’s animation HUD options as well as her look with several different, but equally incredible, appliers.

The Sn@tch Book

The Sn@tch Book
Click to enlarge

The Lookbook is one of my new Flickr albums in which I will display a collection of outfits compiled to show off a certain style, item, brand or event. Lookbooks tend to inspire me, both in real life and on Second Life. One lookbook that recently sparked such inspiration in me was the Inspiration lookbook, which I find a very suiting name, by the wonderful Tarani Tempest. She displayed a set of outfits which all looked very unique yet in some way, they matched perfectly.

The inspiration for my lookbook today comes from one of my favorite stores on the grid, Sn@tch. Sn@tch was founded in 2007 by Ivey Deshanel and has been around ever since. The store offers a variety of products ranging from appliers to various mesh items. Ivey uses Omega appliers which does not only make it easy to use but that also makes all of her appliers useable for many mesh bodies.The system layers are also included for those who still use their system body.

If you are not familiar with the Omega system or would like to know if your mesh body is also omega competible, I recommend you take a look at their blog which contains a lot of information and also lists all of the supported meshes.

Summer is almost here but unfortunately the relaxing warm summer breezes and chill won’t come without a cost. Good luck to all of my fellow students who are still going through their final exams and deadlines! I’ll be quite busy myself for the upcoming four weeks (yes, there are only four weeks until the final deadline of this year!) and if I’ll survive, which I hopefully will, I will be able to dedicate much more time to blogging, vlogging and all of those fantastic phenomenons during the summer!

I will be showing a few more items from The Secret Affair that were just a bit too sultry to be showed on YouTube. TSA always has such wonderful themes, their theme for May is “Light of the Earth”. It’s hard to describe what that exactly means but I recommend you visit the event to find out!

Little Lost Witch

The third Annual Castle, Home & Garden Contest by Relay for Life has just opened. It’s a wonderful event that features great builds from various creative residents and furthermore also helps to raise money for the American Cancer Society. If you’d like to know more about the event, I recommend you take a look at their website and visit the event yourself. I will also leave a link to the RFL website if you would like to know more about the organazation and their other upcoming events.

There are 10 sims in total this year. Each one has a completely unique theme which all of my fellow fantasy lovers will swoon over. Whilst walking from sim to sim, you will travel from Disneyland to The Shire and then you can suddenly find yourself in Narnia! It’s an experience you truly can’t miss.

Before diving into this marvelous adventure, I recommend you take a look at these following pages:

  • Themes
    On this page you can find a list of the different themes. There is also a small summary of each theme.
  • Layout
    This is a map of all of the different sims. You will also be able to see which merchants are located on which sim.

And if you get lost, take a look at:

  • What is it?
    If you find yourself lost or confused, perhaps this page can lighten things up for you.

As I mentioned above, there are several magical themes. These range from Disneyland to Narnia, to J.K. Rowling. Both Park Place and The Pumpkin Head have created Harry Potter themed items for the event. You can find both of these merchants on the Godric’s Hallow sim which, according to the website, is “an English village with some notable residents in the magical community. Including, at one time, a young Harry Potter”.

According to this Buzzfeed test I belong to the Hufflepuff household, so I picked up this wonderful dress from The Little Bat to fully embrace my inner Hufflepuff! Unfortunately I, as a new student at Hogwarts, got lost and ended up in the Gryffindor tower! I have to admit that it was rather stunning there but I could not stay for very long. After capturing the moment to cherish as a sweet memory, I ran out to find the Hufflepuff basement ASAP!

The Power of Journaling

The Power of Journaling
Click to enlarge

I recently bought a journal in real life to keep track of all of my thoughts, adventures and reckless adolescent mistakes. It’s been wonderful so far and come to think of it, my blog and vlog are like a Second Life journal too! Perhaps that is why I enjoy journaling so much.

For today’s journal entry I’ll be writing about lots of things from different events, beginning with this adorable set from MOoH! at the current round of The Thrift Shop. I have completely fallen in love with this set. I adore the dusty rose color and it looks so adorable together with the sweet ruffles and bows.

Whimsical has recently opened her second round and even though it is a rather new event, it is already one of my favorites! You can find this sweet head applier from Enfer Sombre there, together with a whole lot of other goodies from some of the finest designers on the grid.

The Power of Journalizing. - Close-Up

Lost & Found has also just opened but you better hurry, it will only stay open until the beginning of June. A few of my favorite designers are participating in this round, including Le Coq D’or with the Girls Days gacha set. Here is a raw shot of one of the Girls Diaries that you can win. It is pink and has adorable little sheep on them. It is a must have for any journaling cutie! Nanja Marjeta from CHEZ MOI brought out this romantic bridge for Lost & Found in two different versions, nature and white. They both include several single and couple poses. Here’s a picture of the full scene, the bridge is floating behind the books:

Last but not least, a kind reminder that Enchantment is still up and running. It is their best round yet and one that you certainly cannot miss. All of the books you see in the scene are currently available at Enchantment. They are made by the wonderful Una Daxter. The hair I’m wearing is made by the wonderful Truth Hawks and is also available at Enchantment. It comes with two options for the bangs and the crown is included as an optional accessoire.

CATWA Alice

CATWA Alice Head
Click to enlarge

I can confirm that Alice is my favorite Catwa head so far. You might not believe it since this video came out so late but better late than never!


Alice is a basic head, meaning that the head only costs 900L. You can also purchase the fatpack which includes not only the head but also all of her add-ons. The add-ons are also available to buy individually. Take a peek at Catwa’s flickr to see exactly which add-ons are available and how much they cost.

I have blogged Alice twice before and now it’s finally time for her to go up my channel. For this post I’m using a stunning applier from Insol for the main look. In my video, however, I will also show how Alice looks with appliers from:

I have listed the exact appliers and where you can find them in the video description of my vlog.

On another note, my school semester is closing in and I’ve been incredibly busy writing papers, studying and so much more. Due to this I cannot guarantee daily posts. Blogging and vlogging both take an incredible amount of time. I love doing it, truly, but I would currently rather spend that time on my school work.

Within the time that I do spend on the grid I’d like to work on posts, for both my blog and vlog, as much as possible but also work on my blog layout and pages. I’m currently in the midst of updating and creating new informative pages. I will post more about these new pages amongst other updates in one of my upcoming blog posts. Stay tuned!

Love Hair - Me, Myself & I + Hurricane
Click to enlarge

Lovespun from Love Hair came out with this incredibly cute gift for Mother’s Day a few days ago. It’s called Hurricane (Halsey song reference?) and it comes in an ombre pack. She also released two new hairs at The Chapter Four and Hairology. The second of which I still have to blog since it came out after I shot this picture. And yes, that does mean this picture has been sitting on my laptop for a while. I’m late, again.

I can explain though! Let me explain, please! Hey, where are you going? Come back!
(Real mature, Chloë…)

For real though, I wanted to let you know that I’ll be a bit more busy the upcoming 3 weeks due to the end of the semester closing in while still being really behind with all of my work. Bear with me, please!
