Come Away With Me

And I want to wake up with the rain
Falling on a tin roof
While I’m safe there in your arms
So all I ask is for you
To come away with me in the night
Come away with me

Another collaboration with the ever so talented Brennan Maven from ‘These Conversations Kill‘, formerly ‘The Saints of Fashionation’. This guy’s as much of a shopping and photography addict as I am and he is more dedicated to blogging than I am. If you’re a dude or like to play a dude or just wanna spoil that special guy in your life, make sure you check out Bren’s blog because it’s always full of brand new releases just for guys! For today, we’ve put together looks with new items from Men’s Only Monthly, Shiny Shabby, Kustom9, Collabor88 and various new store releases.

Enchantment : The Little Mermaid

For this round of Enchantment you’ll be captivated by everything that is The Little Mermaid. From the classic Disney look to a more fantasy type style or just give it your own spin and if you’re not into dress-up but you’re dying to decorate your new home (or grotto), there’s plenty of that too. This edition of Enchantment is different to previous others. Instead of running around and collecting stamps, you can visit the main sim where tons of creators are lined up with a wide variety of mermaid skins, accessories, hairstyles, home decorations, fun underwater rideables and plenty more! On top of that, aside from shopping at the main location you can also do a hunt that’ll take you to 25 of the designers’ stores for some unique and free goodies. Death Row Designs has released this gorgeous underwater grotto set-up which comes with various static poses and some solo animations as well as some couples poses to snuggle up with your Mer-lover. Mer-chandise Cove released a full set of mesh tails and shells in many different colors allowing you to go for that Ariel look, try your hand at one of her sister’s looks or just create your own mertastic combination. Being the Disney nut I am I went for the more classic look somewhat trying to re-create the scene from ‘Under the Sea’ and I think it came out rather nicely.

Apple Fall’s Hardwick Manor

I normally don’t blog things like homes and furniture. Fashion has always been my go-to and comfort zone but I’m so genuinely thrilled about this new house that it just felt right to blog it. Apple Fall has been a favorite of mine ever since I first stumbled upon his products which I believe was during the June 2013 edition of the Arcade and ever since, I’ve been hooked on almost every single release ever made from something as simple as some pillows all the way up to his skyboxes and homes or even store buildings. The quality, the fine craftsmanship and the more than fair pricing on everything is a huge plus but one thing that I enjoy even more is the fact that Apple himself seems to be an actual person. He engages and goofs off in the Apple Fall group chat, ‘hanging out’ with his customers while giving everyone sneak peaks at his latest WIP and asking for opinions and suggestions. Customer service is superb as well. I remember over a year ago I was looking for a certain frame that was no longer for sale in the store or on Marketplace and though I had to wait a little while (he was on holiday I believe), once I got my response not only was it extremely kind and friendly but I also received the product I’d been dying to get my hands on. You don’t see this often and it’s little things like that, the sheer humanity and kindness that really makes a creator stand out for me aside from their stellar products. Now, over the past week there’s been some people behaving like complete entitled jerks because the addons that are meant for the Hardwick Manor weren’t released immediately along with the house, we had to wait an extra week which is fine by me but it saddens me that people start to behave so vile and viciously and for that reason alone, I even more so felt the need to blog about this gorgeous home as well as the wonderful creator and human being behind it. He’s done a marvelous job and though I feel that my decorative “skills” will never fully do his work justice, I’m gonna put it out there regardless. As I said before, photographing furniture and homes is a completely new thing to me so it probably doesn’t look at pro as some others but I’m rather pleased with the result and I hope you enjoy it too.

PS: There were initially some flickering/trashing texture issues with the house but Apple has now included a 512 texture version with the purchase box. If you’ve bought yours between 8/1 and 8/3 and only have the one version, please grab a copy of your transaction history and notecard Apple for a replacement.
