Spring Sensations

Posted in High Fashion,SL Meets RL by Piper Hanriot on May 7, 2017

We have already arrived in May.  This year is flying by.  Carrie’s Lingerie have a new and exclusive gown and lingerie set for the month, as well as some exciting new releases and even a favourite lingerie set that has been given a face lift, so here are a few mouth-watering snippets to tempt you.

Carrie does lace lingerie so very well and the Reese set is no exception.  As well as black, this beautiful lingerie set is also available in teal, red, purple, fuchsia and blue and comprises the lace body, gloves and stockings.  While here in the UK the outside temperature is still a bit cool for the time of year, I think with the Reese lingerie, you can soon warm things up a bit.

May exclusive, Genevieve gown and silks set

As I first mentioned above the new May exclusive outfit it out in the Carrie’s Lingerie mainstore.  You can wear this set as a full gown (shown above) or the silks (shown below).  There are two different options for the bra and knickers.  Also included in this set is a full face make-up.  There are matching shoes, which can be purchased separately to complete your look.  Carrie has also added Omega applier hud with the options for this stunning set.

Well my dear readers, that is all that I have to share with you for now, however I will bring your more hot off the press news and exclusives from Carrie’s Lingerie very soon.  In the meantime, have a great week.  Until next time …

New Year’s Eve 2016

Posted in High Fashion,SL Meets RL by Piper Hanriot on December 31, 2016

Usually in the run up to New Year’s Eve I post some photos of gorgeous party dresses and waffle a bit about them and their amazing designers.  This year I have decided to still post photos of fabulous New Year’s Eve party dresses by some of SL’s amazing designers, however I have decided to also reflect a little on this past year as well.

I have to say that for me personally, 2016 has gone by very quickly indeed and now thinking back on everything that has happened around the globe, it does make me wonder whether the reason 2016 has gone by so fast is so that no-one has had too much time to think about one event before the next one has occurred.

Angelique gown from Sascha’s Designs

For me, 2016 has been a pretty good year, albeit busier than the past few years.  I have juggled my full-time job with making celebration cakes for friends, family and customers, moved house, had an awesome holiday in the USA and went to the Cake International event in November.  This has not left me with a great deal of time in SL, however I was able to organise a fashion show for TWA / Silvan Moon Designs, which was great fun to do and apart from my usual blogging, I hope to achieve a few more things in SL in 2017.

Aside from the horrible incidents that have happened, some of which continues around our beautiful planet, I am not sure if it’s due to social media, which means we receive news faster now than a decade ago, but we have also lost so many wonderful people this year. From David Bowie, Prince, Victoria Wood, Alan Rickman, Leonard Cohen, Caroline Aherne, George Michael, Rick Parfitt, Mohammed Ali, Sir Terry Wogan, Gene Wilder, Carrie Fisher and her mother Debbie Reynolds and so many more.  My heart goes out to their families and  hope that in time they find peace.  Recently in SL we also lost a very talented fashion designer, Dani Plassitz.  During my time of being in SL, I was able to speak to her a few times, she was warm and kind and will be missed greatly.

Well ladies, gents and loyal readers around the world, here in the UK there are only a few more hours left of 2016. I take this opportunity to wish you all a good year in 2017. May it be filled with good health, happiness, love and laughter.  For the real world, my wish is for a more peaceful year and of course hope for better things.

Happy New Year everyone.  Until next year …

P.S – I will post details of my styling in the photos above on my Flickr page https://www.flickr.com/photos/47089508@N08/

 

 

Birthday Blog 2014

Posted in SL Meets RL by Piper Hanriot on June 15, 2014

Firstly wishing all the father’s in the world a Happy Father’s Day and secondly I am also celebrating my birthday.

I usually use this blog to post fashion, news and other fun items from Second Life, but today I thought I would dedicate the majority of this blog to my RL hobby of baking.

I keep saying this, however it is true in that I am not in SL a great at the moment, however I have been busy getting back into one of my favourite hobbies, baking and cake decorating.

After returning from holiday in early May and whisking up a quick chocolate fudge cake for my Godson’s birthday, I then did not bake anything for about two weeks.  After that I was itching to try to make a few things I remember making at school, which was a long time ago, so I started with rosemary focaccia, which turned out better than I had expected.  It was so light and tasted yummy.

After that I saw some bananas in my fruit bowl, the skin getting quite a few brown spots, so instead of throwing them away, I decided to make some banana bread.  I took some to work and some to dressmaking class for everyone to sample.  I think they liked it, as there was none left at the end of the day.

I also received an order from a lady at work for some cupcakes for her friend’s baby shower.  The lemon cupcakes were decorated with baby bottles and the vanilla cupcakes decorated with little baby booties.  They were such fun to make.

I always enjoy baking items with a twist and also using my favourite ingredients.  Lavender is one of my favourite flowers, I just love the smell of lavender.  I found a place online that sells culinary lavender.  They also sell culinary lavender essence and lavender sugar.  With my order they sent me with a leaflet with a few recipes containing lavender, so I baked a batch of lavender shortbread.  The smell from the oven as they were cooking was divine and they were delicious to taste as well.

Last week I whisked up a batch of chocolate cupcakes with chocolate butter-cream and decorated with rice paper pictures of Weimaraner puppies (above).  My friend Emma ordered these for her husband who celebrated his birthday last week.  They advised me that they enjoyed them very much and her husband has since asked me when I will be making some more, inviting me to join them one day for Pimms and cake.  I will definitely visit soon 🙂

And finally I couldn’t resist setting up a quick photo of my SL avatar in her virtual kitchen looking as if she has been busy baking too.  I have my friend Rico Mar to thank for the inspiration, after visiting his tea house a few weeks ago and seeing all the delectable cakes, pastries, desserts and sweets, which some of you will have seen on a very long table in his tea house.  Thank you Rico 🙂

Well that is it for this post, I hope you have al enjoyed it.  I do intend to create my own RL blog soon, which will feature more RL baking delights, together with some helpful hints and tips.  Until next time …
