Sensommervise

Really start to feel that autumn mood, and I was reminded of one of my favorite songs growing up and being in a choir (well two choirs really) – “Sensommervise” which means directly translated “Late summer song.” I linked it on Flickr, if you guys want to listen to it. ♥

Today I am showing you – albeit a bit late – Caes new release for FLF. It is now out at mainstore at full price, but not any less cute! I love these star earrings and the crescent moon necklace is just beautiful. ♥

My sweater “Simone” is from “Just Because” and can be bought at Uber. I love the feminine cut. ♥ It is a Collaboration with her teenage daughter, who’s learning to mesh. ♥ Together they call themselves “AnnieRose.” ♥ See the full ad below the credits. ♥

Autumn is the season to find contentment at home by paying attention to what we already have

The days are really getting colder here, and I’ve broken out my favorite sweater – and not just in Second Life! Outside it still looks like spring, but the colder winds definitely tells a different story. I honestly love this time of year, bringing out the warmer cozy clothing, scarves and coats, tea and soup! ❤
If someone asked me to name a favorite season, I wouldn't know what to pick, because I love them all. Each season has its beauty.

Autumn is the season to find contentment at home by paying attention to what we already have

My sweater dress is from Kaithleen’s and comes in a wide array of colors – and with stripes. You can also color the neckline and dress separately. ♥ It has a beautiful open back, which you can get a glance at in the ad photo below the credits. ♥ Kaithleen’s has also recently released a great outfit for the men at Cosmpolitan! My man tried it on and we both loved it. Don’t miss out, guys! ♥

Today, I’ve been going wild at Uber and spent way too much (as usual), but there are just so many lovely releases. Foxcity has released this really cozy backdrop cabin and pose set including this awesome hanging chair and a cup to match the poses – the chair contains the poses as well, so you can just sit and pick which pose you want ♥ – this poser maker just keeps taking it to the next level. ♥ I love watching her grow and expand.

Truth has worked his magic again and given us the adorable Aislin hair and I’ve immediately added it to my favorite button on the toolbar. ♥ It has 10 different styles, mirror versions included and three different sizes for each one. Did I mention I am totally addicted to Truth? ♥ Not just because of his hairs, but once I lost nearly all my hairs and spend hours putting a NC together (this was before redelivery was common) where I was wearing the hairs I lost, Truth was the first to reach out with a helping hand and put a massive amount of L$s in my credit to replace some of them. That is truly something I appreciate and value, and will never forget – a creator with an exceptionally kind heart. ♥

Bueno is also at Uber, and released these cute boots that are just my style – I love the loose fitting in boots like these, and I immediately fatpacked them. ♥
Sole and boot can be colored separately. ♥ I can’t really say much about these other than they are perfection. ♥

Dust Bunny has released a cute branch coat hanger and umbrella holder at Uber too, and I am in love. ♥ I love naturally looking creations with wood that isn’t necessarily completely straight up and down. ♥ The coat hanger comes in four different colors; gold, black, white and light pink. The umbrella stand also comes in the same four matching colors. ♥

If people were rain, then I was a drizzle and she was a hurricane

If people were rain, then I was a drizzle and she was a hurricane

Weather is changing here again and I have to admit, I’ve really missed the rain. I love summer, I really do, but this one has felt VERY long, so I am glad to see some proper autumn weather (and so is the grass!) That’s the beauty of rain – it rejuvenates everything. ♥

Glam Affair is releasing so many cute skins right now, and I want to blog them ALL, but as many as she releases, I could sit here all day every day and just blog skin upon skin – but I am not complaining. ♥ The one I am wearing in the photo is called “Dee” and can be found at Au Lovely. It comes with the usual choices for brow colors, as well as three freckle/mole options (not shown in this photo). ♥

Coat: Belle Epoque { Adley } Black @ mainstore.

Autumn is a second spring, where every leaf is a flower

I am having a bit of a period, where I am not feeling too inspired, or in touch my creativity and it’s been getting to me a lot lately. I know that all I can really do about it is to step away from it for a bit and come back with fresh eyes, but when I do that, I feel the itch to take more photos, but then I sit down and fall in the same ditch again; not feeling inspired. But I also know that eventually it will hit again. ♥

On this photo, I am wearing Glam Affair “Paula” – one of the new releases for Collabor88, and I love it. ♥ I love the details and softness of Glam Affairs skins – and especially how they’ve started making their lips and brows ♥ I’ve matched the cute Daphne hair with a cute open-back sweater from Kaithleen – and it’s so cute. It has a bow that holds the sweater together. ♥

Today I have grown taller from walking with the trees

In just about 2 months, I’ve had my blog for a year – not the flickr, but this actual blog and I really feel like I’ve grown as a photographer and blogger, and really starting to come into myself, to the identity of being a blogger and photographer. It’s been an exciting year of learning, observing and trying various styles, windlights, etc., etc., and I will continue to do so! However, there will be some changes made, starting right now actually!

I am renaming my blog to “Girl Next Door” – this is something, I’ve considered for a while, because I feel it’s more “me” – not to say that I am not still finding introversion to be beautiful – I do. But after a very interesting and great conversation with lots of great feedback with a blogger manager, I decided to go through with it, so from now on the blog address will be https://girlnextdoor.blog/, and I will continue to bring you lots of photos, a bit more writing than I have up till now and of course credits.

Today I have grown taller from walking with the trees

Fall in upon us and it’s time to bring out the sweaters – I’ve found my favorite sweater so far in SL at Collabor88 by Tres Blah. I am IN LOVE with this. 3/4 sleeves, feminine v-neck and thigh length for coziness and warmth. ♥ I will live in this sweater. Combined with these cute jeans from ISON – another of my favorite brands and you have the perfect fall look. Tableau Vivant had a makeover lately, and I am in love with the new styles. In this photo, I’ve chosen a loose, straight forward hairstyle that they just released at Collabor88, and I love how it hangs naturally down the breast and back, as well as draping beautifully over the shoulders. ♥
