I didn’t talk to you guys about The Arcade during its first run, and that is shameful. It’s a quarterly gacha festival and IT IS AWESOME. That pretty much sums it up.

Seriously, I’ve never been a huge fan of gacha events, but THIS one – omgah. Amazing stuff from amazing designers…we’re talking about fashion, skins, jewelry, poses…OH, and home and garden. YES. I am so happy with how well-represented H&G is at this event. It warms my cold snobby heart. ♥

Cassette Radio – Tee*fy (Azure Electricteeth)
Rococo Frames – Yummy  (Polyester Partridge)

And then there’s THIS. The cutest advent calendar in the whole world. You can grab the calendar itself for free, and then play the gacha for each of the keys. Each key opens one of the cubbies and gives you the gift that you see inside in precious mini form. I love this. ♥

More awesome stuff from this month’s Collabor88!

Introducing my new favorite couch in all the world…I totally want this in RL, too…the Flamingo Sofa from Pandora Popstar and LISP Bazaar.

From Gala Charron and *Art Dummy! – the Flamingo drafting table set — such a cute workspace! It’s color-changeable, and I lovelovelove the stool. ♥

creature of habit.

For someone as wrapped up in SL home & garden as I am, I surprisingly rarely buy  new furniture and/or change up my own living conditions. I tend to keep the same house for years with not a lot of changes to the interior. I think it’s mostly because I’m lazy. That’s one reason why I hardly ever decorate the houses I’m sent for review. Primarily, it’s because I want to showcase the build on its own without distractions…and secondly, because it just takes too much time to really dress up a space properly. What can ya do?

With that said, though, I have recently strayed outside my usual routine. Bought me a new kitchen. Yep. Sure did. Look at me go.


Well, me being me, I did keep several pieces of my old kitchen, too, and just worked in the new stuff. The new stuff happens to be the Vine “Vite” Bistro Kitchen from LISP Bazaar (Pandora Popstar) and I LOVE IT. It’s currently available at CHIC², a great event celebrating the 2nd birthday of Chic Management. (You need to check out the whole event, lots of nice stuff: clothes, jewelry, skins, hair, furniture, poses, and more!) When I saw the Vine “Vite” Bistro Kitchen, I made a snap decision to redecorate!

 

The table and chairs are part of the Castara Dine-in Kitchen from The Loft, and were in my kitchen already. I’ve also kept some accessories and shelves from that set, too. 

The cabinets along the wall are part of the Vine “Vite” Bistro set, and you guys know how I love surfaces on which to put things, so I lovelovelove having this counter space!

The scale, baskets of bread, pastries, and espresso set are also part of the new set. Pandora has really done a great job with her accessories!

The lamps are my favorite. ♥ They’re texture change, as well.

The white cabinet in the background is one of my own pieces from the Second Spaces shop, and one of my personal favorites.

So there ya go – my new(ish) kitchen! It’s nice and cozy, just like I like it.

I went back and looked at my pics from when I first set this house up in January 2011…and I realize that I have made a few other small changes over the past 18 months…so maybe I’ll share those soon, too. Progress!

I’ve never spent a lot of time just decorating for fun in SL (oddly enough), and I want to try to get into that habit. I’ve recently started taking fashion pics just for fun…like a look-of-the-day thing…and so I want to try doing occasional room-of-the-day pics for the blog. Here goes. 🙂

Now, let’s talk about some hall-decking

Hi! Now that I’m done with SUYS for this month (and goodness, what an awesome SUYS it was!), I can start focusing on holiday deco! I’m not a big holiday decorator in RL or SL…and really, even less in SL although it’s so much easier here. I’ve said it before, for someone who is so into SL homes and furniture and decor — I don’t really decorate my own space so much. HOWEVER — once I had a chance to check out the Christmas market at LISP Bazaar, that all changed!

Pandora Popstar of LISP always, ALWAYS, does an amazing job with all of her designs. Every single holiday item she has out is awesome, and I love that she has quite a bit of vintage included. The best thing of all, though, is that almost all of her holiday stuff is JUST 10L. SRSLY. TEN LITTLE LINDENS. Go. Shop. Decorate. Now.

Some of my favorites:

(You can get that whole room for just 100L omgsquee!)

And my favorites:

There’s so much more to see, so get over there!
