According to my taste, they are showing in fair shades, but darker tones are available as well.

CHIC Limited Event - April [ Part 1 ]

CHIC Limited is a monthly event brought to you by Keira Seerose, CHIC Management.
It is a small venue containing 30 brands (or less) per cycle.
Each cycle has a theme for designers to be inspired by,
but they can interpret the prompt as loosely or closely as they choose.
 CHIC Limited was created to offer a much asked for alternative to the current sales culture.
Many designers felt they were unable to opt out of sales groups,
hunts and events because they could not compete without the level of publicity they gave them.
CHIC Limited is using the generated reputation of working with high quality brands to offer brands
an opportunity to get the publicity of an event, without having to reduce their prices.

This session opened April 16th and will close April 30th.
The theme is “Cherry Blossoms“.

 TP to CHIC limited

[bubble] - Black Blossom Babydoll

[bellballs] - Earrings, necklace & make-up
Donna Flora - Petals Short White & Ramona Shoes Cherry
KHUSH - Old Rose Leggins

Orion - Arienette 2/Icing

sur + - [hanami] grey

I will be very late and slow...

...these days with my blogging activity.
I need to assist a RL friend who is in hospital, so I'm spending the biggest part of my time with her.
This is why I will be quite slow in the next days, but hopefully not totally silent.
Wish me luck.

New & 50L sales! Severed Garden - XIII - doll.

Today I have some roleplay-but-not-only news to share!

{Severed Garden} has just released a beautiful Gorean outfit, Zoe. It's a typical piece of style from the store, coloured and creative, with many peculiar details like the backpack with fishing accessories! It can be worn without the shirt layer as well! Thanks a lot, Berta!

Severed Garden - Zoe - XIII - Doll

The pic has been shot at [XIII], a very well known and one of the best medieval, gothic and Gorean furniture stores that unfortunately is closing. Every furniture pack has been marked down to 50L!!! Till Monday, then the store will be gone for good. Go now, the stuff is beautiful and worth much more!

Another great sale is running at [doll.], where single pose packs and props are marked 50L, couple poses 25L. The pose I used is in part of the set called Chloe. Have a look!

Project FUR Japan

I have two cats, Merlin and Madam Mim (yes, like the Sword in the Stone characters).
I live in a big city, and during my childhood I had never had any animal. So, when my family decided to adopt a kitten, I was confused and I wasn't sure about my feelings. I said okay, but I don't want him to jump on my bed and such things.
Now, Merlin sleeps with me, purring all the time. And sometimes, when she doesn't sleep in my mother's room, Madam Mim joins him laying on my pillow, just above my head.
This is just a very small sample about how a furry ball can change your life. And that is why I couldn't overlook an event dedicated to them.

Project FUR Japan is a fund raiser for the animals that lost their human friends during the tragic earthquake and tsunami. You will find all the technical info, including the first receipt of the donation, on the official blog. I will share only this video, that touched half world...I had already watched it before the news of the SL event reached me. See how loyal and caring our furry friends can be.

EDIT: I messed up the codes of the videos @_@ This is the video I meant to show you. No need to speak Japanese to understand what is happening: a dog is bringing the people to rescue his hurt friend.

This one is instead the video made for the Project FUR Japan. Remember me I shouldn't blog stuff during the night!

I want to show you some items I got at the Project FUR Japan! 100% profit is going to the charity.
Usually, green is not my colour at all...but some designers persuaded me to buy their beautiful products!

Top: So Many Styles - Lace Tshirt Mint - 150L
Pants: Concrete Flowers - Tweed Pants Forest - 77L
Neck Pouch: Concrete Flowers - Neck Pouch Moss - 139L
Shoes: Concrete Flowers - Flidais Flat Moss - 99L
