So Many December Events!

I’ve waited a few weeks now to really start decorating my winter home. I had a feeling all the new goodies starting this December would make it worthwhile to wait. I was so excited to score the rare bed from Olive! I just knew the bedroom was next on my list to decorate. Almost all the items below are either from The Arcade, Four Walls Hunt or Geeks’n’Nerds. Keep reading for more details.

Last Mile Home.

Well, winter is coming and By Dorian created a beautiful new mesh stove to warm you up. It will be available this weekend for only 60L which is quite a bargin considering after that it will be priced at 200L. The Geeks’n’Nerds Event begins November 24th and I’m extremely excited for it! Below I’ve got a few trinkets to show you from Floorplan for the event, so read on please. 🙂

Decorating For Fall.

I’ve got a huge post today of fall decor and most items below are either from The Seasons Story or this round of The Arcade. I have to say autumn makes me miss living in the midwest. I love when the trees begin to change color and drift slowly to the ground, the days get cooler and most of all I love to be able to wear my boots again. 😀

Remove Your Hair To Show You Care.

Today I’m showing you two items from both the Hair Fair and  the Love Donna Flora event. Both of these are heart-touching fundraisers which you can learn more about here and here. I don’t think I know a single person whose life has not been affected by cancer in some way. For this reason, today I’m going to show my support by wearings this elegant bandana created by Anya Ohmai, it can be found at the bandana booth. This will be the last day of Hair Fair 2013 so let’s remove our hair to show we care.

My RL Apartment Meets SL.

My hubby has been wanting to recreate our RL apartment in SL for some time so he spent several hours creating a skybox that is an exact replica of our home! I thought it was so adorable I had to decorate and snap a few photos to show you how we live, for real. I even went so far as to find the college radio stream from our area that I listen to often. I’m about to bombard you with photos so make sure you click all of them so you can see all the tiny details. Thanks for having a look at the museum of Kimbra and Oculis! :p If ya really want to see it up close and personal come on over! I’m leaving it up for a few days. The Reseda.

Even if we can’t fit a real table in out true kitchen, I was glad Oculis gave me the space to throw one in here. The timeless kitchen set from Trompe Loeil seems to go perfectly. I also added some freebie food items from +9 and some yummy pizza from Rassasy Foods. I chose the crayola stools from vespertine to go along with my breakfast bar. Continue reading
