Clowning Around

Hey SL kids: Cirque de Seraphim is not just for grown-ups! Head to the circus to find this cute, mesh blouse and pants by *TuttiFrutti*. Siobhan is wearing the ASPCA donation items in the “circus” pattern, but several other colors and patterns are available. You can also pick up a snuggly hat from the gacha machine in their booth. Her clown make-up skin is by La Petite Morte, and her pose is part of a pack by [KoKoLoReS] (balloons are included). In the background, you see the silly cat circus by .::Cubic Cherry Kre-ations:.., circus tent by .*Paper Flowers*., and signs by *~*HopScotch*~* and tarte.

As of today, Cirque de Seraphim has raised 586,817L ($2,366 U.S. dollars) for the ASPCA. Thank you for your kindness and generosity! Cirque de Seraphim continues until November 26, so if you haven’t had a chance to visit yet, there’s still time!

Look Who’s Coming to Dinner

Look Who's Coming to Dinner

Just a little dining room scene, serving up lots of good deals. The table and chairs are on sale at Shutter Field as part of this month’s entry in The Challenge: Mediterranean. Also from Shutter Field are the items on the table, and the pretty shelves in the background. All of these come as part of a cute pizza set, which also includes a long table which wouldn’t fit in this room, unfortunately. The shelves come in decorated and empty versions, in case you have your own pretties to show off. The wreath, bread basket, and wall blocks are from an “Autumn Harvest” gacha which you can find at the [CIRCA] Living landing point. Lots of gacha goodies to be had. Finally, you can find the rug and plant stand in the sales room at StoraxTree.

Bare Face Challenge (Accepted)

#SLBareFaceChallenge

I decided to participate in the #SLBareFaceChallenge today. The challenge was started by Genkai Tesla on Flickr, and has pretty much gone viral today. The point was to post a photo of your avatar with no makeup, no eyelashes, no mesh enhancements, and using no Photoshop. This skin is already so gorgeous that it doesn’t need any enhancing, so I’ll admit that the hardest part of the challenge was restraining myself from Photoshop.

I love this new hair from Exile, which is available at the current round of Collabor88. My sexy sweater is new from Somnia, and you can find it at My Slink Obsession. I’m wearing the version for the Slink Physique mesh body, but other versions, including system layers, are also available. Yes, I know you can see the line where my head joins the mesh body, but I can’t seem to master the head-neck-joiner-tattoo thingie, and no Photoshop was allowed. Just pretend you can’t see it, pretty please. :-)

I challenge anyone reading this to participate in the #SLBareFaceChallenge. Check out The Bare Face Challenge Flickr group to see more brave residents who have accepted the challenge!

Jumping Into Fall

I’m not ready for winter. I know, I know, it’s already snowing in many places in real life. And it’s already snowing in many places in SL. But I love fall, and I’m going to enjoy it for just a bit longer. There will be time for snow pictures soon enough.

Jumping into Fall

So today I bring you more goodies from Cirque de Seraphim, the fabulous fundraiser sponsored by Seraphim SL for the ASPCA. You can find this adorable juggling giraffe sweater (which my daughter now wants in RL) in several colors by LOULOU&CO. I was going to wear purple, but decided grey was a better raking leaves color. My jeans by Somnia are available at the current round of My Slink Obsession. I am wearing the Slink Physique applier version in medium denim. They also come in system layers, and cuffs are included; I’m not wearing the cuffs because I’m wearing these awesome boots by fri.day instead, which I picked up for Fifty Linden Friday last week (sorry, they’re not still on sale). My jumping pose is part of a Jumping Into Leaves pose pack by Atooly, available at the current round of Oneword. Lots of cute poses are included. :-)

Jumping into Fall

This sweet elephant necklace by Bokeh is available at Cirque de Seraphim, and comes in silver, gold, and the copper version I’m wearing. Easy to resize. And let me just say how much I love this Lauren skin by Glam Affair… the freckles are gorgeous! You can pick her up at the current round of Collabor88.

-{ZOZ}- Balloon Animal Polish

I neglected to get a decent picture of the nail appliers I’m wearing, so I’m going to cheat and show you the HUD. You can pick up these balloon animal nails by {ZOZ} at Cirque de Seraphim.

Little House on the Lane

Little House on the Lane

Out now at FaMESHed is this adorable, new cottage from Dust Bunny. If you are looking for a cozy retreat for the holidays, this should definitely fit the bill. I love that it even comes with a satellite dish, giving a homey, vintage-style house a bit of a contemporary twist.

Little House on the Lane

[Off Melrose] is offering this comfy bench for this month’s round of The Challenge. Both the wood and the blanket are texture-change, so you can easily find a style to suit your snuggling needs. It comes with the wine and cheese basket, which I didn’t get in this photo (DOH!), but you can see next to the table in the previous photo. The cute foxes having a rest are gacha items from Serenity Style, soon to be released at the upcoming round of The Thrift Shop (November 9 – 30). The little guy is a common, and comes in 3 colors. The bigger guy is the rare, and I love that his bow tie has SHEEP on it. :-D

I’m Just a Fool For You

I'm Just a Fool for You

Cirque de Seraphim begins tomorrow, November 6th, and will run until November 26th. As part of Cirque de Seraphim, designers will contribute 50% of their sales from a minimum of one exclusively created item to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA).

Why does this charity matter to me? Well, I’m a “rescue mom” myself. Pretty much every dog I have ever had has either been a shelter dog or a rescue dog. I am currently “owned” by two terrier mutts, whom I adopted from two different rescues. Both were taken out of high-kill shelters and put into foster care by some really wonderful people. I’ll try to share my rescue story here in the next few days, but in the meantime, you really must visit the Cirque de Seraphim web site and read some of the designers’ shelter stories. Spike’s story brought tears to my eyes…

Ahem… moving on. My outfit is a Cirque de Seraphim donation item from Legal Insanity, and my updo hair is a Cirque de Seraphim item from KoKoLoReS. My pose is part of the Clowning Around pose pack from Verocity. All of these items will be available starting TOMORROW at Cirque de Seraphim - you can get the SLurl from the official web site once the event is open, and I will post it here, as well (I only added links to the designers’ in-world stores in case you come to this post after the event closes).  SLurls are below!

Now… go hug your pet. :-D
