Miss October

In a month full of events there are two that are definitely worth a visit. One is the epic, interactive, incredible HavenHollow. If you go, bring a friend (or more than one). And if your computer can handle it, go through on ultra. I was able to, thanks to my recently acquired new video card, and it was really spectacular.

Another is L’Amitie Fall Market, a small, intimate gathering of talented designers offering adorable items.

This pic features the adorable Little Granny avatar from The Secret Store, which you can purchase at the HavenHollow Souvenir Shop. This avatar includes an adorable AO and a hud to change the colors of Granny’s glasses, sweater, skirt and slippers. There are also some free gifts at HavenHollow’s Souvenir Shop, including a cookie tray from The Secret Store that works with the Granny av.

The bench Granny is rather saucily lounging on is from Consignment for L’Amitie. This bench features 8 metal and plank colors, as well as season change leaves, making it perfect for year round use!

Miss October

HavenHollow closes at 11:59 pm on Halloween.

L’Amitie Fall Market runs through November 2nd.

Don’t miss out! Check them out today.

Autumn Fantasy

The Mystic Realms Faire ends tomorrow, so if you haven’t checked this event out yet, don’t wait! It’s two sims full of fantasy.

I wanted to share some of my finds from the event. First, I love this hair from Exile so much. The crown is optional, as well as texture change. My jewelry is also from Mystic Realms, by Cae. My gorgeous skin is the newly released Grace from Belleza.

Wood Elf

Koy released some awesome poses, complete with crossbow prop, for this event. And FATEplay has a new outfit, Surie, which is available in three different versions and plenty of color choices. This is my favorite version. The boots are included, too!

Defender of the Wood

For Mystic Realms, Consignment released this adorable little Planter’s Habitat home. The mushroom seat and faeries sign are part of this set.

Autumn Fantasy

Be sure to check out this great event before it ends tomorrow!

PS. Charisma and I were originally going to blog together for this, and my internet was rude. But she’s taken her pic and will be blogging it soon. Meanwhile, she said I could share it here. Be sure to check her blog for her credits soon!

Faded Love

So the folks at Uber have a contest for the October 50 Shades Of Grey inspired edition. I decided this was a perfect opportunity to push my boundaries a little. So I grabbed an alt and took her to Uber for some goodies (frankly, she’s usually dressed as a guy so this was just fun for a change). Here are the results!

It’s kind of rare for me to really love a picture and not nit pick the ways I could’ve made it better. So to get two I loved from one shoot is really unusual, but I did. In this first one, I loved the vulnerability…

Stay

…and this version is going to be my contest entry. I felt it better showed the gorgeous corset I’m wearing from Shai, along with the lovely bed from Sway’s.

Faded Love

This was a lot of fun, and it definitely pushed me. You still have some time to go to Uber to grab the goodies seen here, along with plenty others! Full fashion and decor credits below.

Here, have a cupcake

So Charisma asked me to pose with her this morning so she could get in a last Candy Fair post using this adorable pose from Infiniti. But of course, she had to be a brat. Here, she said. Have a cupcake, she said. Then… SMOOSH. Cake and icing all over my face. Still, all things considered, for her this is pretty tame. :D

Anyway, I decided… I’m here. We look adorable. I’m gonna shoot it, too. So you get a rare second blog in one day from me!

Here, have a cupcake.

Our dresses and CJ’s hair are from Collabor88’s October round, which is so wonderfully spooky and perfect for the season.

Temptation

So, if you haven’t heard, Uber did a 50 Shades theme this round. I will readily admit I couldn’t read the book(s). I started the first one, got about 30 pages in and the writing just hurt my brain. It was just that bad. But if it’s your thing, cool. Admittedly, I despised Twilight (though I did finish the first book in that series), and since it was fan fic that inspired this book (still not sure I make that connection, btw), maybe it’s not shocking I hated this, too.

But even if you hated the book(s) like me, you’ll find Uber is full of sexy, sultry goodness. Seriously, like this bedroom set from Sway’s. I loved this in part because it’s so not what I’m used to from Sway’s, and it really works. The pile of clothes, the shirt on the lamp, the unmade bed… it all draws you in. The sultry hair is Exile, also for Uber. My stupidly sexy shoes are from L.Warwick for My SLink Obsession, but as you can see here they also include a version for Belleza’s Venus body.

Temptation

This beautiful skin is Belleza’s Mae for the Vintage & Cool Fair, which opens tomorrow. I particularly loved the black liner and red lips with my new silvery grey eyes from Buzzeri, which recently reopened in world.

Key to my heart

I’ll have more from Uber, along with so.many.other.events soon… ALL THE EVENTS.

PS. The title of this blog post comes from CJ… she was there when I was shooting this scene and she kept accusing me of tempting her. To do what, only god knows.

Candy Coated Autumn

You may have heard that Candy Fair 2014 opened on Friday. This event was a lot of fun last year, and this year it’s even better. The build is just adorable, and easy to navigate (essential for a zero sense of direction spazz like me!).

I have a few things to show you today, and there will be plenty more to satisfy your sweet tooth in posts to come. While many of the Candy Fair designers featured items that are not seasonal – meaning Autumn or Halloween specific – there are some goodies to be found in those genres. One such find is this adorable candy corn mailbox from Lost Junction. It comes in plenty of other colors and designs, too. And there are matching windchimes available. I just thought it would be the perfect October mailbox (please note this is NOT a functional mailbox, but just for seriously cute decor).

Candy Gram

Sway’s did some really cute living sets for Candy Fair, one of which actually is seasonal and resembles candy corn. However, I really liked the chocolate version and it suited this cute vespertine skybox perfectly. The beautiful lantern is from 8f8 for Candy Fair (their non-gacha offering), and the tray of cupcakes and chocolates is just one of Pixel Mode’s avaiable items.

Stormy September

Today I want to show you an adorable little shop from Roawenwood for the Home & Garden Expo. This is the “single” store version, but there are bigger versions, too. And honestly, though designed as a storefront, I think some of you more creative types out there could easily make one of these work as a living space, too. I’m calling this post and this pic Stormy September because that’s how this month has felt for me in RL… but it’s almost over and October is one of my very favorite months in the year. So I am really looking forward to putting this September behind me and moving into the heart of Autumn, my favorite season of all.

Stormy September

The Home & Garden Expo ends on Sunday, so if you haven’t been by yet, please make sure to check it out. It benefits a great cause and with 9 sims there’s really something for just about everyone!

The Sewing Loft

A couple of months back I bought this gorgeous converted barn from Barnesworth Anubis. I am in so love with this house (which is insanely huge, btw) that I may keep it through the holidays. For a compulsive home changer like me, that’s quite a statement. One of my favorite features of this home is the giant loft. I decided I wanted to make it half a library (and when that part’s done, there will be pics) and half a craft sort of area. This meant that Pixel Mode’s beautiful Arcade set, The Sewing Corner, was perfect for up there!

Lair of the Seamstress

I also wanted some seating, so I threw in a couple of pieces from Scarlet Creative’s Meribel set, also from The Arcade, which you can see in this wider shot of the room.

The Sewing Loft

There are still five full days left at The Arcade, so be sure to stop by before it’s over!
