Flâneur

The French have the perfect word for it: ‘Flâneur’. It means to stroll around aimlessly but enjoyably, observing life and your surroundings. Baudelaire defined a flaneur as ‘a person who walks the city in order to experience it’.

Lookie! GOOSE made their first living room set! The Crupet Living Room Set (PG/Adult) is a full living room set with couches (containing animations and texture changing options), coffee table, shelves, plant and wall art and the set is available at Cosmopolitan for a few more days. Buy the full set or separate pieces.

DaD has made the most fun lamps, “The Time is Pipe Collection” is available at this round of The Ephiphany. Touching the lamps gives you a menu for the lights; on/off, intensity, colour and access. I have chosen to use four lamps that fit my living room, but there are actually 10 different lamps in the collection so make sure you take a look here for the full gacha key.

I Dream of Spring

This world is filled with frozen lovers
The sheets of their beds are frightfully cold
And I’ve slept there in the snow with others
Yet loved no others before


These cold dark places
Places I’ve been
In cold dark places
I dream of spring

K.D. Lang – I Dream of Spring

“Be a person who can dream about Spring in the dead of Winter”, said Debasish Mridha. While I do think winter is beautiful, when it’s crisp and clear and the snow covers a frozen landscape. Today is not such a day, or rather, this whole past week. Instead of fresh powdery snow, we have sleet, slush and sticky grit. So I dream of spring; the warmth of the sun, budding trees, flowers in bloom, Dachshund puppies with clean bellies… and You and I, we are always together in my dreams.

Loft Living

The NoHo Loft/Skybox by DaD is a modern grunge industrial inspired loft that maximizes space by utilizing the open floor concept, with large windows that provides natural lighting and built-in storage under the stairs leading to the mezzanine level. This is also Woofer’s favourite hideout. Aesthetically pleasing design with features like steel piping throughout and wood beams that gives comfort and ease style of living within a small footprint (28.2×17.5 resizable). It’s Land Impact is 103. The NoHo Loft is available at this round of FaMESHed.

Complementing the loft, DaD also just released the NoHo Living Set. The set includes a sofa with plush cushions in a soft black color encased by distressed wood adorned with steel piping. The table is a match piece with the top made from the same worn distressed wood and steel piping legs. Two textured rugs completes the entire set to give you comfort, warmth and a style that never goes out of fashion. The NoHo Living Set PG and Adult versions are available right now at Anthem!

Shhh… Let's Pretend It's Sunday

I’m trying my best to ignore the fact that it’s Monday and I have a whole week of having to live in my own time zone ahead of me. Get up at 6 am. Walk the puppies. Shower. Feed breakfast to the puppies and myself. Be off to work by 7:30. It’s still dark at 7:30, my brain wants to sleep in. Let’s pretend it’s Sunday?

CHEZ MOI provides us with the perfect place to spend our downtime with the Adore King Bed Set; The bed contains Bento animations, PG (101 animations) and Adult (173 animations) versions available. 36 single animations. Touch the blanket for colour options. The set also includes all the decor shown in my picture apart from the lamp. The lamp is from GOOSE.

We’re getting comfy wearing the His and Her Downtime sets by Allure Couture. PJ bottoms and shirt for the guys and legwarmers and shirt for the women. HUD controlled texture changer for each piece so you can mix and match colours. You can find both sets at this round of the 7Event!

The Blue Hour

Twilight Hour. Indian blue, water of glass, trees glistening and liquescent.

Henry Miller

My last post this year and I’m dedicating it to a natural phenomenon which is called The Blue Hour. Where I live, we experience this light, during the Polar Night, in the middle of the day when the sun is at its highest yet still below the horizon. It’s magical and no picture can do it justice.

Contemporary casual comfort is what you get with the Nolan Living Set by DaD. The set consists of a sofa, armchair and pouf and you’ll find plenty of single-, friends- and couples (PG and Adult) animations in either. Customize the look with the texture changer HUD.

Outside the big glass windows of the DaD Glass House, you can see a new release by Little Branch; the Forest Pansy Tree. It’s a beautiful addition to your garden or sim, lightly animated as if swaying to a gentle breeze and it has a season changing menu upon Touch. I will give you a closer look of it in another blog post because I already have a great idea for a picture.

You can find both the DaD Nolan Living Set and the Little Branch Forest Pansy Tree at this round of Uber.

I’d like to give a warm welcome and a huge thank you to my newest H&G sponsor, Refuge. The first time I saw the Spark Lamps, which is a previous release, I thought they looked absolutely amazing and I wanted to show them to you too in case you missed them earlier. They come in different sizes and with three choices of metal, you can even choose with or without the shimmer effect. As a center light I’ve used the Cosmo Lighting, also by Refuge; it comes in gold or silver and the light strings has the same animated shimmer effect it looks beautiful. You can find the lamps at the Refuge mainstore!

The Most Wonderful Time (of Year)

Dear Santa, please define “Naughty”. Hopefully he won’t mind that we’re getting a little bit naughty while decorating the room with the Cock O’Clock and the Naughty Santa Ornament by Barley. The Juneau Candles, also Barley, are kinda hot too. You can find all these items at this round of FaMESHed X which lasts until January 6th.
