Pinot Noir





I live in a wine growing region in RL.  I have lots of favs, but I do love a good red.  I am partial to a lovely pinot noir and a fruity merlot, but won't turn down a white wine either and enjoyed a drop or two of pinot gris and arneis over our summer.

So, when I saw these fabulous vines from Botanical I knew I could create a little taste of home in my backyard and live out a wee dream of mine of having my own vineyard (not that I know anything about growing or processing grapes for wine, but why let that stop me?).

This Touch-To-Change Vineyard set is available at The Garden and, as with all T2C items, you can use the hud to change your vines depending on the season which means 4 seasons with 1 item.  Easy!

The cart is also from Botanical and comes with great poses so you can relax and watch other people pick the grapes!

Bubbles





I found these Bubbles poses from Infiniti at the Pose Fair 2014 and thought they would be perfect with the outfit and scene I had to blog.  I love bubbles!

The Bloc Outfit White is from [SAKIDE] and you will find it at The 100 Block.  You can alter how you wear the leggings and the gloves so it is fun and versatile.


The shape is one I am enjoying from Panda Punx.  It is called Yasmine and you can track it down at [Room 69].  I like the curvy look of this shape.  It is fun to have hips!


Ok, I admit that I just like this photo so I had to add it to the post.  It does show off the pose nicely, so I am justifying it that way!


The nails are from [S H O C K] and are also in The 100 Block.  These ones are called Slink Glam Rock Nails and come with a hud so you can pick the colour you want.  Smexy!


The other items are from my inventory and so you can find this Erika hair at Wasabi Pills, the Mesh Combat Boots from Kennedy's (closed store so these are only on MP), and the Elf Ears at Gauged.

Murder





It is fitting that I am in a place that celebrates Shakespeare and quotes such as:

 "Murder most foul, as in the best it is;
But this most foul, strange, and unnatural."

and

"Come, seeling night,
Scarf up the tender eye of pitiful day,
And with thy bloody and invisible hand
Cancel and tear to pieces that great bond
Which keeps me pale! Light thickens, and the crow
Makes wing to the rooky wood;
Good things of day begin to droop and drowse,
Whiles night's black agents to their preys do rouse."


I am of course in the wonderful sim of Foul Whisperings and Strange Matters, Macbeth and it seemed apt that I found this awesome pose pack called LadyCrow from Axix at the Pose Fair 2014 that celebrates crows (Axix is near the bottom...you will see what I mean when you go there).

I am thankful that I seem to have power over this murder of crows...

Aqua





I have called this post Aqua but for all I know it could be teal or turquoise or azure.  I have never quite worked out the difference.  I know some of you out there are sighing at that admission, but quite honestly is there much of a difference really?  Perhaps some are more green and some more blue.  *Shrug*  All I do know is that my items today from The Monchromatic Fair are just lovely whatever colour heading they fall under!

In the Rain





I like walking in the rain and Arya does not so I am hijacking this post and doing it myself...

Ok, the true reason is that she is busy and I had nothing to do.

I have some more bits from The 100 Block and I am pleased there is actually some men's stuff to show.  Can I encourage more of you designers to get on the menswear train?  I hope so.  If you don't I will get bored and annoy Arya and then she can't blog.  Do you want that on your conscience?  Ha!

Lady of the Lake





I am loving all these events and fairs at the mo.  Keeps a blogger busy and out of trouble!  Today is all about The Monochromatic Fair and I am loving the amazing styles and colours that the designers are bringing out for our buying pleasure.

My outfit today is a fine example of that.  This blue is stunning!  The dress, jewellery, nail polish and shoes are all from *Mon Cheri* and I couldn't wait to show them off.


The dress is the Empire Maxi and I am wearing it in the Cobalt colour with a white belt, but you also have the option of a brown or black belt if you wish.

The shoes are the Malesia Sandals in the Sea colour and these work well with your flat Slink feet.  Great casual sandals but so lovely.


I am also wearing this Saasha Necklace in Blue and these great Alma Bangles in Ocean and Silver.  I know these will get a lot of wearing as they can go with a variety of styles and will suit formal or casual wear.


The skin I am showing off today is from *Morphine and is also at The Monochromatic Fair.  It is called Juliana and I am wearing the Peach Skintone (Skye/Light).  The skin comes with Slink appliers for feet and hands which makes life simple.  My eyeshadow and lipstick are from *Morphine too and are also called Juliana.  I am wearing the Blue eyeshadow and the Natural Dark lip colour.

The poses in the first three photos are from Ilaya and are from the Mono Pack.  These can be found at TMF too and are great poses to have in your inventory.

The pose for the last photo is from the Handy Pack from Infiniti and these are from The 100 Block.  Great for showing off your new nails, jewellery or, as in my case, Slink hands.

Lastly my hair is from Tulip and is called Elena.  I picked this up at The Season's Story.

Glam Grunge
