One of my favourite places on the grid is Happy Mood. Sasaya Kayo made a gorgeous sim/store, that has been around for years and keeps getting cuter. So I took my toon and her prettiest gown to go for a walk there, and was met by a hundred butterflies. I couldn’t help but try and capture the moment.

Oh hello! Have you seen the latest release from Cheeky Pea? It’s already available in the main store so no need to fight the lag at some overcrowded event. The lovely Carolyn Gazebo set features a gazebo (obviously), but also all the furniture you can see in the pictures : chair, sofa, coffee table, side table, chiminea (with flames!), coffee tray, rug and mugs, cute knick-knacks, and the loveliest potted daisies. I vote that Cheeky Pea start releasing more plants in the future, she’s really gifted with them!
Happy Mood is such a delightful store. It’s hard to describe because it sells such a mix of items, but if you want one word, it’s a store that sells whimsy. Whimsy is the defining word for the secret garden at Happy Mood – a multi-level mixture of culvert tunnels, trees, flowers and fun. When I put on this fun Vive La Bohome dress from Modern Gypsy, I immediately though of whimsy and that made me go to Happy Mood for the photos.
Sweet Lovely Cute is the name of a pose store that Gogo introduced me to the other day. The poses are adorable, making it a very well-named store. However, I think the name suits this dress from Modern Gypsy equally well. I love floral prints for summer – they make me happy.
Stores like Honey Kitty and DP YumYum specialize in cute. In fact, I believe they have installed security systems in their stores that prevent anything from rezzing that is not cute. If your hair stays grey in the store, you know it’s not cute. If you aren’t sure about an outfit, test it and tp in and see if it rezzes. If it does, it’s cute. But cute is a continuum. Is it as cute as a baby shark with a funny nosel or is it as cute as a baby seal? This, I think, is just plain off the chart cute.
Women love drop-dead sexy dresses, short dresses, long dresses, all kinds of dresses, but the dresses that make us go “oooh” and do cartwheels in our minds are the truly romantic, soft and innocent dresses like this cream dress from Hal*Hina. This is the sort of dress our dolls wore, a barely there cream, soft pink roses, a wispy layer of organza, ribbons in our hair. We put these kinds of dresses on and hear harp music played by cherubs in clouds.
Hal*Hina is definitely a find. A store with lovely feminine dresses, many for only L50. There’s also a luscious green dress available free to group members. Continue reading →
