Coffee on the go

Good morning! Very little time left this morning, though got some great finds for you today.  Looking for something small and cozy to spend the fall season snuggled up?  Ariskea has released this cute old cottage house at Kustom9 — a one room build with a 35 land impact.  I used it to house this beautiful dining set by Minimal out now at Collabor88.  Several pieces and really like the different styles of chairs that accompany it.

I’m also featuring some newness from Hive.  It doesn’t get better than coffee on the go.  Few versions and best of all you can customize with your name by using the hud.  The leather tote is available in 4 colors.  The journal is a group gift, and all can be found at the mainstore.  The boxwood topiary is at Kustom9, and just great for all sorts of decor needs.

Have a fantastic week!

Cry a river. build a bridge. get over it.

One of the things that I really enjoy doing in second life is landscaping.  I can easily get lost in putting together a scene or just decorating my own land.  That said, I am always on the lookout for new and different and today I’m happy to showcase the brand !Pandemonium.  They are not new, though they recently released some new mesh products that are absolutely gorgeous.

I’ll be using more of their stuff in future posts, but today I’m featuring the shallow bridge in mossy brown and the mossy grey pile of rocks near it.  Go check out the store, you won’t be disappointed.

Beating the heat

Hello everyone!  Hope it was a fantastic one for you.  Mine was good, but tiring.  I spent a few hours out yesterday shopping and it was not well planned out.   School started up again today and that meant chaos with so many people out and about doing their last minute stuff in preparation.  I probably spent more time in long lines than I actually did getting the stuff I was purchasing.   The heat was exhausting on its own as well.

Today I’m showcasing items from two events, FaMESHed and The Liaison Collaborative.  Everything is listed below so take a look and enjoy your Monday!

Hunters retreat

Morning! Is it Friday yet?  I had one of those crazy chaotic Monday’s that had me craving the weekend.  Plus, I’m having some major log in issues that seems to be specific to me.  It took me over an hour to log in last night.   I was just about to give up when I finally got in.

Even after being in chat with support for over an hour yesterday, it’s not working. I tried again this morning unsuccessfully.

Though luckily I grabbed my credits for today’s post.  DRD has released a few new releases that you’re going to absolutely love, especially if you’re a fan.  The hunter’s retreat comes with a lot more than I am showing, so you must go take a look.  The cabin is just so picturesque and useful for even more than just a hunter’s retreat.

It comes with a hearty meal, so how can you resist?  The picture below is just a small view of the inside.  That bed makes me wish I was still in mind.

You can find the set at this current round of UBER.

Unseen things

Hello everyone!   It’s almost Thursday, at least for me as I got 15 minutes before midnight.  I also start to turn into a pumpkin then.

This is a mixed post of fashion and decor.  I’m featuring a new skin by Belleza, which is made for the Lelutka mesh head.  Camilla comes in 7 skin tones and also a base skin, omega body applier, shape, brow shape and 5 brow options. There are also a set of add-on eye makeups and a set of lipsticks available as well and all can be found at Summerfest ’19.

I’m also showing a new animal by JIAN, which is the snake in the tree.  Now this is a Brazilian boa that is JIAN’s first animesh and it’s supposed to be a neck hugger.  I couldn’t bring myself to wrap it around my neck.  I figured if it wrapped around my neck it could wrap around the tree.  When I rezzed it on the floor, it was straight and I thought nope that isn’t going to work.  Then suddenly it snapped into place and a few seconds later it started to move around.  It was quite eerie really.  You can find it at the main store.

The other items being shown is the latest group gift for Granola, which is the clothesline and wash tub available at the main store.  A new tree by Little Branch out now at Sense Event.  The yellow wood tree is seasonal.

Enjoy!

The story of a traveler

Good morning!  Today’s post is all about 8f8’s newest collection.  It’s a beautiful collection as usual with remarkable textures and details.  There is so much to this set in terms of colors, texture change for the leaves and animations.  You must visit to get the full appreciation.  Included in the scene are some other pieces from 8f8.

There is also a story that comes with this set… taken from creators Flickr.

The Story

This is a story of one traveler. He travels from one place to another. He does not have much to offer, just a humble old worn out suitcase of unknown content but of great value only known to him. He chooses many different directions as he is very curious by nature no matter how much they scare him. He stumbles a lot on the way, falls too and his knees feel the weight of all experiences he carries with him. Yet he continues going forward discovering all life offers, around him and within him. More often than not he encounters seemingly empty spaces, places left behind, abandoned or perhaps just misunderstood, to most of no value. But not to him. Those are his precious moments when his eyes are able to catch shy beauty that found a place to grow where there only seems to be decay. Little beauty emerging where to an untrained eye only seems to be waste, waste of space, waste of time, waste of effort… He recognizes such places, he knows them very well as he has spent many years living them. So he stops and reaches out.

This is a story of one traveler. This is a story of someone who looks for places that struggle, sees beauty in these seemingly forgotten, abandoned souls and offers them a mirror to show them their own inner growing beauty he seeks and loves so deeply.

This is a story of me and … you.

The Collection

Nine different items, one 8f8 Group Gift and BONUS Old Colors for the phone booth if you go for the whole collection.  You can see it displayed at Black Kite.

Hint of romance

Today was such a beautiful day outside. No rain like we have been getting the last week or so.   I didn’t get to enjoy it much only when I was out and about from the office to lunch and then home later in the afternoon.  Though in all honesty the heat can be overwhelming and after a few I’ll be rushing to find the nearest air conditioning.

This gorgeousness I’m showing is a new item by [ zerkalo ], the old boat seat is available in pg and adult.  The details on it are amazing.  You can find it at the newest round of Kustom9.  The floral archways are from Dust Bunny and available at Anthem, which ends in several days.
