Winter grounds

Standard

This  is my 3rd blog post in a series of home decor. Over the weekend i decorated and set up this cute little house by Culprit, and i spent the week decorating it: Interior Culprit and setting it all up: Exterior Culprit, but today i bring you something different, I´ve already blogged the inside of the house, the outside of the house, so i figured why not blog the landscape, and surrounding grounds? So this is what i bring you guys today.

Let´s star with what always comes first, the ground itself, i admit ground textures as not always that visible, and i always use a mix myself, here i´m using Izzie’s new winter ground textures, I had already bought her Autumn ground textures and was so happy with them i didn´t think twice when i saw she had released a new winter pack, i really love her snow, and i´m using two of her textures here.

Also a new release are the white leafed trees in mesh from Garden of Dreams, another one of my favourite shops, these are copy and mod and come in 3 different sizes and several versions, as barren for example, for the barren snowy trees i picked up another shop tho, Botanical, these are HUD controlled, meaning i can change their leafy texture in second for a whole sim, which makes my landscaping effort a lot easier, they also come with falling leafs particles if you wish so, I´ve never personally bothered, deleting their scripts, because i´ve had no lag issues whatsoever with these since i bought the Linden tree pack over a year ago, and did i mention the LI is pretty small? Only thing i find sad is that they are no mod, which is always useful for trees.

Another shop i raid frequently is Hearth Botanicals, i love their snow drifts and also their ground textures, from there and for this area i picked only a few things, the lovely Autumn coloured, snowy trees, that help break of a bit from all the white, and all the frosted grass and tulips you see scattered around the grounds, when i first saw these i went sort of hmm, but i tried it i was sold, i love it and it helps fill out bigger empty spaces, that so often happen in snowy places.

Last but certainly not least I have a few things from Organica also another one of my favourite shops, not only for trees, but mostly for different landscaping elements, rock, roads… but my new favourite Organica product are those cliffs you see in the picture, they are mesh, not only do they have a low LI but they are easily modifiable without any huge increase on the LI, and when i say mod, i mean perfectly mod, not just for resizing, but also for texturing, i applied at the top the same textures i was using on the sim grounds, and that sure made me a happy kitten.

The bridge you see briefly on the first picture is also another Culprit release, now if only i had time to do an outdoor furniture post? Let´s see if that´s possible soon, until then i say goodbye and hope you all enjoy the rest of your week.

Darkness is coming

Slowly falling over us all as the A new Twisted Hunt arrives, starting tomorrow, also starting tomorrow is another hunt, The Summer Harvest Hunt, which i will bring you guys soon over at the The Ego Co. blog.

But let´s start with The Twisted Hunt, one of my favourites, always with a dark theme, always with an amazing list of creators, some more well known others sorta of new, here i bring you guys a small preview from it, this gorgeous mesh necklace by House of Rain, that you might remember from The Goth Fair, and occasional blogs, i love mesh jewelry, and i love the detail it brings, also i like it even more when it´s copy and mod, the best thing for any mesh jewelry, that ended all scaling problems of small prims, allowing you to resize it and fit it to perfection when unrigged, like this beautiful necklace, that shows, a barren tree under a jeweled moon.

I missed doing a more dark look, and for this one, i picked a random skin from Glam Affair, an older one from a long lost Dressing Room, and added something new to the look, one of Nomine´s first mesh releases, in this lovely Shapirre tone, perfect for the mood of another gorgeous Garden of Dreams scene.

The dress has two versions, one of them short and another long, with cut out sides and perfect to show of your back.

So guys, prepare yourselves for an amazing weekend and month hunting, don´t we all love a good hunt? I´ll be seeing you all soon with more hunt goodies, have a wonderful weekend.

Hidden Cove

Standard

This is where i´ve been all weekend away, hidden taking pictures for this week blog posts, and doing something else, trying out Guild Wars 2, yes i gave in after eyeing the game for ages, and seeing all the amazing pictures my friends had from beta, i bought it. I haven´t had much time to actually play yet, but it feels nice to have some distraction, instead of blogging all the time, last week was super busy with blogging, so i am cutting back a bit, since no one can keep up doing 3 blog posts a day for long, not to mention i also have a sim to terraform and decorate and an inventory to tame.

But back to the goodies i bring you today, which is a bit of a lot, a lot of events going on, expect my tldr post of the month soon by the way, too much happening all over.

So i went to the dressing room, and tried the new Cassiopeia in the Jamaica tone, i have to say this, first time i tried a Glam Affair skin i was all, hmm doesn´t suit me much , but slowly and with time it has become one of my favourite brands to blog, even if i don´t really wear it daily, i love taking pictures in them, and i love the ticker eyebrows. I also stopped at My Attic last week if you remember well, and it´s where you can find this cute bikini i´m wearing, i´m not much of a bikini person myself, but i love well placed bows, and the bigger they are the better.

Also you all know i love cats and at the Truth district there is a fundraiser going on for one sick kitty the Archie Appeal Fundraising Event, and if there is something i don´t mind spending money on is cats, just ask my spoiled little girl, so i headed there and did some shopping, the poses i used here are also available there, and are a much needed set of behind poses by Bent.

I also finally got the chance to use this amazing beach scene by Garden Of Dreams with a hammock, tent and fire, pier and even a hidden nook with a treasure chest, which i find totally adorable.

See you all soon, if i don´t get lost in Guild Wars 2 killing foes and planting crops.

Safe from the storm

Standard

At the start of this week we had a hurricane warning, that has passed us by and quickly turned into a tropical storm, even so the weather has been humid and a hat, a lot more tropical than it´s usual for this time of year, so due to that i´ve been longing for drier weather and a cool breeze, and that was what i got for today´s pictures.

So today i bring you an awesome new release from Bilo, this long flowy mesh Abaya, released just in time for Eid, and i can´t wit for when they release the soon to come mesh hijab, perfect for this time of year, and also perfect, for this desert scene from Garden of Dreams.

This scene could not be more detailed, all furniture comes with sits and is ready to use the sclupts are simply amazing, the sandstorm particles add to the immersion perfectly, making me feel safe in this not really that small tent, from the stormy winds, the only thing i usually do with scenes is remove, the outer box to show a bit of sky and have shadows, anything else was untouched.

I also had this Pink Fuel skin, unblogged that i bought a culture shock and seemed perfect for this setting, notice again the new group gift from M.O.C.K., that i haven´t taken of all week.

For now i must take shelter, and come back to you all later with more goodies and events. Stay safe from the winds.
