Stay close to people who feel like sunshine

It’s been a while since I last collaborated with Jules and if you’re not familiar with her blog, you need to go check it out at Sunshine & Sparkles.  I kept crashing quite a bit, but she was a great sport and even came back another day so that I could finally take the picture.

Many thanks Jules for your patience and for collaborating with me!! ♥

The Savannah

Galland Homes released a new home almost a week ago.  The Savannah, is described as a southern style beach home.  Just as  you see it pictured it includes a wrap around porch on the outside and the inside you’ll find an abundance of rooms with enough space for everyday living.  I’ve included some details below credits, but also visit Galland Homes Blog to get more details on what this new lovely home offers.

I’m also showcasing a new release by Anhelo.  The block wall and gate post fence set by Anhelo is currently at the Kagami Event that is ongoing until August 28th.  The coastal boathouse on the far end on the side of the house is by DaD Designs. It is this past month’s group gift, which may still be available. You can get a better view here and make sure to take a peek at the rest of the creators amazing designs.

The other item being featured in today’s post is by Shutter Field & Decor Junction for Shiny Shabby.  The rustic outdoor bar with swing type seats is just what you need to finish off the rest of the summer time enjoying the sun and some outdoor fun and drinks.

Have a great weekend ahead!

There are stories waiting to be written

I’m sort of wondering why I didn’t take a close up of the items inside this little shack by [Tia] at FaMESHed. Thinking back to this day I remember the struggle was finding a windlight that I liked. You know one of those days that when you finally find the lighting to take the photo and all you want to do is quickly snap the picture and be done with it.  Yes, it was probably one of those days.  Though you really ought to go check these items out at the event because they’re absolutely great.

The decor on the outside, the lighted arch with the trunks are by Serenity and were part of last months Deco(c)rate. You can still grab the subscription box, but it will be at a slightly higher price.  The white poppies are from Heart Gardens and also at FaMESHed.  As I mentioned in my post yesterday, you can find these in an assortment of colors.  The last item is the dirt road by Moon_Sha at We ❤ Role-Play. There are several options on this road available as individual purchases or a fatpack.

Lots of great stuff coming this month so stay tuned!

Quiet living spaces

I come from a large family so it was anything but quiet at my house growing up. My mother definitely deserves our gratitude and appreciation and so much more for having to raise a whole bunch of rowdy kids. Most of the siblings are just one or two years apart so there wasn’t much rest in between.

Having a living space like this I decorated would have never been ideal for our home situation. Living in Florida most of my life never required a fireplace either.  The only times I remember ever being around them was up north on the west coast and during our trip to the smoky mountains.

In any case.. it’s fun to decorate all sorts of ways here in Second Life.  Most of the decorations are from Fancy Decor at the Arcade with a few of his older items and some mingled from other designers.  I’m showcasing also one of the past releases by Galland Homes, which can be found at the main store.

Summer Camp awaits

Morning everyone!  Today I am super excited as I’m doing my first post as one of the official bloggers for the Arcade.  This is just one of a few previews that I will be doing to show you what’s going to be available at the Arcade once it opens on June 1st.  Yes, its just a couple of days away and I hope you’re all revved up and ready to go, because there are some fabulous goodies coming our way.

The majority of items here are from Hive, who has the “Summer Camp” gacha that has 3 rares and 14 commons plus the reward prize for playing the machine 25 times.  It’s an amazing set as you can see, but take a look at the key here to see all the pieces to the set.  This machine is L$50 per play.

Then Mutresse is back giving us the “Mr FixIt” gacha, which is absolutely hilarious as I’m sure we all have men in our lives who know how to fix it all or not.  As in my case I have the Mr FixIt asleep.  Slacker.  The gacha set includes 3 rares and 11 commons at L$50 per play.  You can find the gacha key here to find your Mr FixIt.

The bike is part of the “Beach Cruiser” gacha set by Brocante. This set has 12 commons and 3 rares at L$50 per play.  Bikes are attachable, to view the complete set view the key here.

The last items being featured are these cute doggies, which are one of two sets by JIAN.  The “Playful Pibbles” gacha is a 19 piece set made up of 3 rares and 16 commons at L$50 per play plus the additional reward price for the 25 pull play. See the key here to get all the details on this gacha.

Plus visit the official Arcade website for all the news and to see the guide under the shop tab so you can begin to plan your visit.

Have a great one!

**Landmark will be provided once the Arcade opens**

There is purpose in your season of waiting

Happy Monday and Happy Memorial Day for us here in America. Normally it’s a relaxing day for us and usually we do a cookout, though not this year. My siblings are further away now with making moves to other states, so getting together isn’t as easy.  That aside.. today is a day of remembrance for those who served in our armed services protecting our country. In this day and age and from what we see all over the world it’s never been more important to feel blessed for those men and woman who served and those who serve now.

I wish everyone a fantastic and peaceful day wherever you are.  Today’s post is all about Cosmopolitan.  If you’re not familiar with this event, it’s one that takes place every two week bringing you an array of new releases in clothes, furniture, poses and everything that makes our lives here in Second Life a little more enjoyable. This round will end on June 4th, so you still have time to grab some fabulous goodies.

Enjoy the rest of your day!!
