Party like it’s a new decade!

I think it’s a fair assumption to say that for most of us, 2019 has been a bit of a stinker of a year. For me personally it’s been an absolutely horrible time, and I will be celebrating with my beloved and generally being very chuffed that we can tell 2019 to piddle off into the sunset.

2020: new decade, new beginnings and all that….

If you want to bring 2020 in in style then you MUST get yourselves over to UBER SL to see what Ria Bazar has created for us. It’s an absolutely glorious table and tableware set, with plates that rez actual food and glasses that rez water and your preferred alcohol selection, along with a drinks trolley that you can fill with a champagne tower and confetti and balloons galore!

The marble table and matching drinks trolley are accompanied with bang on trend clear plastic seating. You can simply rez the whole lot in a few seconds using the rezzer included in the entire package. It’s like magic. You can also buy parts individually which is super convenient, I for one know there will be elements of this set that I will be keeping on display at home well into the new decade.

The thing with Ria’s work is it’s ALWAYS been about the details, and there are plenty of those on display from the patterned and functional tableware to the food that you can rez in your bowls. It’s a lot of fun to discover whats on the menu so I won’t list it all and spoil it all for you; but who knew there were so many risotto options?

I placed my drinks cart to the side and decorated it with a couple of bottles of plonk, a fabulous champagne glass tower and on the bottom shelf I added the ‘Countdown Clock’ cake from Andika, also available at UBER SL

I’ve basically rezzed all of it along with the number balloons and it looks absolutely great. I’m not sure if anyone will come to the party, but jokes on them if they miss out on all this lovely, lovely booze and food and cake! I’ve developed an extra chin and love handle over Christmas, won’t hurt to add a few more inches…

The entire set costs a measly L$589, but parts of it are also available separately (all prices in Linden dollars, obviously):

Table: L$129

Chair: L$159

Place setting: L$119

Boxed Balloon: L$49

Champagne: L$25

Rose: L$25

Cart:L$89

Champagne tower: L$49

Confetti: L$25

Texture options include: gold, silver and rose gold.

Number Balloons set costs L$329, with individual numbers on sale for L$49 (Again, the set includes gold, silver and rose gold options)

I’ve said it before and it bears repeating, Ria Bazar REALLY puts the effort into her work and this is a creation that will give you a lot of joy, not just on New Year’s Eve but throughout 2020 and beyond.

I Surrender To The Truth..

UBER is upon us and it’s a very Springy edition; lots of dresses, shorts and skimpy outerwear, underwear and as a total contrast some spectacular furnishings and dwellings too. I have literally ONE PRIM left at home. It kills me; I rearrange my furniture as often as I take my pants out of my buttcrack (they creep in, a lot) but I’ve got it looking ‘just right’ at the moment (my house, not my buttcrack) so I can’t spare any primmage for the glorious  ASTRALIA BBQ set, for a start. GAH!!!!Surrender to the Truth...However, I can spare the primmage for new hair. My long hair addiction continues and it has been more than satisfied by this release from TRUTH. It’s called ‘Surrender’ and it’s a beautiful, flowing, layered beauty. I messed up a bit actually because I did a naughty- I did the ‘buy before try’ and I should’ve done it the other way around so that I could play with more colours but nay mind, as they say around here, I have it and I feel gorgeous in it. So here is a picture of me being gorgeous in it, and I’m giving myself serious Kate Beckinsale vibes. If you love long hair then you need this in your life, obviously. I love the Styling Hud that’s included so I could wear my hair over my shoulders but I just wanted to wear my hair down, loose and free at the front for this snap. I’m still wearing my NYLON OUTFITTERS undies from COLLABOR88. They could do with a wash, to be honest…

Caught up in the Rapture..

You know, pauldrons need to be a fashion thing again, they really do. they add so much oomph to an otherwise simple outfit, and this dress from RAPTURE screams ‘Pauldrons!’ Well, OK, it doesn’t really, but the simple yet super-effective one shoulder styling of this fitmesh frock yearns for you to accessorize, accessorise, ACCESSORISE! So I did, I added the aforementioned pauldrons that I found on the marketplace after a quick search. I also added the latest style from TRUTH to hit the grid at UBER, along with these fantastic biker chic gloves by RE ( also from UBER– it’s a spectacular round this month!)

This dress would also look just as good with a scarf or a chunky collar and thigh-high boots too.  This look makes me think Hollywood’s version of Cleopatra, but with a 21st-century vibe.

 

 

Jumpers For Goalposts@ UBER

It is frigging FREEZING in the UK at the moment. As I write I’m pretty much snowed in, but instead of feeling all warm and cosy about it I’m feeling grumpy. It’s -6 at the moment, and I just don’t like the cold. I don’t like the heat either, I’m happiest at a nice median temperature.  I like my weather like I like my porridge, not too hot, not too cold, but just right.

Speaking of which, I’ve found something just right whilst out and about on my virtual jollies; a glorious off the shoulder jumper dress by ROWNE.  It’s called ‘Charlee’ and fits my Maitreya Lara body perfectly out of the box.  It features an excellent cable texture and those on trend, chunky, ever-so-slightly ballooned sleeves that everyone’s wearing.

A simple dress needs a simple hairstyle and I found a beautiful style by MINA to accompany my dress, also at UBER.  This is a low slung ponytail, with backcombed volume at the crown and a loose side-swept fringe.  You can wear it over either shoulder via HUD, but I couldn’t help feeling there was a lost opportunity here; if you can style it over either shoulder, why not offer the option for BOTH ponytails at the same time, adding even more versatility to such a great look?

To finish I slung on some shades that I picked up at REWIND, these ‘Dahlia’ shades in Ombre are a classic shape but have added 90’s zest from the heart motif on the left lens. After adding some old favourite boots and a wardrobe staple, my BOOM ribbon choker I was good to go!
