Can’t Hang Around

Can't Hang AroundA girl can’t stay in her picture all day – there’s shopping to do!

Hello, I’m Chiana and I’m a shopaholic new recruit to your fabulous Seraphim team. I was really nervous about completing my first few assignments but my lovely colleagues have been so warm and welcoming that I really do think joining them may be the best Second Life decision I’ve made yet!

For those of you who would like to know a little about me: I live in the UK, have been around SL since 2008 and I love photography in both lives (though I’m not very good at it yet). My favourite colors are blue and orange, my favourite video game is Portal and my husband tells me he fell in love with me when I yelled ‘Yay, zombies!’ at an inappropriate moment. Also, I don’t think it will come as a surprise to anyone that I’m completely addicted to all the shinies and pretties that this virtual world has to offer so I’m delighted to be sharing some of my shopping favs with you all!

This week’s look was inspired by no.7′s recent Skin Fair release (now available in-store) which in turn takes its inspiration from the Pop art movement. I thought it was an absolutely brilliant creation and had a lot of fun creating an outfit and pictures to go with it.

I hope you enjoy this post and tune-in often for more from us all here at Seraphim.

See you next time!

Chiana ❀

Hi again, Del here.

This time I brought a special guest for the blog.  Readers, meet Mat.  You will probably see him pop up now and then as I take you on some of our adventures.  This morning we found ourselves with a few hours free, which is a great rarity in our busy lives.  It was such a wonderful morning, ended with us here just talking and enjoying the scenery.

Mat is wearing a gorgeous suit he just picked up at the February round of The Mens Dept and he truly loves it.  The details are really great and the pinstripe is flawless.  It is very, very well done and really a good deal at only 295L.

I am such a fangurl when it comes to Junbug clothing and Cae jewelry!  I actually tried to resist this time, knowing that there were so many fairs and festivals in February.  I really tried!  For like a whole day I didn’t go to We Love Role-Play to pick up the dress.  A WHOLE DAY!  Do you know how hard that was?  If you’re reading this, then you probably do!  But then…something happened.  One of my Plurk friends posted a picture wearing the dress.  It was just as gorgeous on her as I thought it would be.  That night while Mat slept I ran out quickly picked up the gown.  I have already worn it three times!

The Nostalgia jewelry set from Cae is really amazing, too.  Cae’s work is always so detailed and classy that I find myself buying every piece she comes out with.  On this jewelry set, there is a HUD to change gem, pearl and metal colors.  The HUD also toggles between the length of the necklace.  If you have a lower neckline (or you just want to accentuate ‘the girls’), you can click and POOF!  A third strand is added to the necklace and it is a perfect fit and perfect match.  Brilliant!

Is it just me, or does Mat have a devilish little smile at the corners of his mouth?  Hmmm.  Better see what mischief he’s conjuring up!

Happy Saturday, everyone!

Del, Enchanted.

Hi everyone!

My name is Del, and I am so happy to welcome you to Seraphim Backstage.  Over the course of the next several posts, you will definitely see our personalities shine through and you will receive a glimpse into our own, personal, second lives.  I am excited to share a bit about myself with you!

As an avid shopper and a fan of all things creative, I spend a lot of my time bouncing between events and exploring new and exciting places.  My fantastic friends are constantly providing me information on new and beautiful places to visit, which helps to keep SL exciting for me.  I also love spending time joking around with those closest to me, whether we are out dancing or at home just chattering away.  I also treasure those wonderfully quiet nights alone with my adorable boyfriend.

Yesterday I decided to check out Enchantment because I have heard so much about it, and it absolutely did not disappoint!  The theme for this round is “Little Red Riding Hood,” and there is everything from hands severed by axes to adorable baskets full of goodies for gramma!  The winter forest scene is incredibly well done.  It is quaint and classy, and allows for the creations to shine through.  It was so hard to choose which designs to show you because I could have purchased almost everything there, but I did limit it to a few must-have items.  I think I will need to practice my restraint in February to prevent myself from going back again…and again…and again.

I hope you enjoy!
