“But there is always a November space after the leaves have fallen when she felt it was almost indecent to intrude on the woods…for their glory terrestrial had departed and their glory celestial of spirit and purity and whiteness had not yet come upon them.”
― L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Windy Poplars

The Sn@tch Book

The Sn@tch Book

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!

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.

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.
