It’s gonna be another hot one

Happy weekend! It’s been a super busy one for me in both worlds.  My day today is less stressful, yet so much to do before the day ends.

Today’s post is all fashion. I’m showcasing a new hair release by eXxEsS at the main store.  The southwestern hat is by Black Bantam at Collabor88 and fashion at FaMESHed by Belle Epopque and Equal.  It’s second day in for FaMESHed so you’re gonna be fighting the crowds, but so worth the visit.

Enjoy!

Good morning! Afternoon! or just Hello!

Today I’m featuring Haikei’s latest release, which is available at Kustom9.  I can’t tell you how delighted I was to see the creator bring us decor in natural tones again.  It was these designs that made me fall in love with the brand in the first place.

The rare skybox build is a mixture of different textures and I love brick in homes so I thought to show you some of the brick inside, hence the angle that I took with this picture.  Plus it shows a little of the patio area. Since the items are a bit scattered, to help you recognize the current release I have placed the link to the gacha key below.

I’m also featuring [Black Bantam], who has a current release at Collabor88.  It’s the soy burgers.  I made them for you all, because I prefer a 100% beef burger.  I know studies have shown that lowering your consumption of red meat is much healthier for you.  If you ask me I am still going to tell you that I prefer beef to chicken, turkey, etc.  It’s sort of a running joke with my family. If they ask me what I want for dinner, my answer is always the same. I want steak. I’ll take a t-bone, filet mignon, top sirloin or a rib-eye.  I’m easy, any of those will be fine.  I took after my father, who called salad rabbit food. I do like salads though, preferably spinach with toasted almonds and grilled shrimp and perhaps some zesty Asian dressing or balsamic vinegar is good too.

The little cute dog in the patio area is a previous release by the creator, which was a VIP reward price.

Enjoy!

Lots of cuteness that I am showcasing, so get a look below for all the details of what is in the picture.

Happy Thursday! One day closer to Friday?  I’m feeling a little under the weather since yesterday and my brain isn’t quite functioning.  It’s a bit groggy and despite going to sleep earlier than my usual time I’m still tired.  In any case I got to do this picture showcasing a lot of wonderful creators and their new offerings at events and a new release at the main store.

Enjoy!

I’m lost out at sea in all this blue

After a hellish week of dealing with sinusitis I am so glad to almost be feeling normal again even if I woke with a sore throat this morning.  I hope everyone is enjoying the warmer days and the freshness of spring.

Today I’m showcasing items from Bloom, which is an annual event that features all the beauty of spring.  Everything shown is listed below.  I am also showing a cute little kitten in a cup by Black Bantam out now at the Access event.

Also, some great news, especially if you’re a blogger in Second Life and tend to use a lot of items in your scenes. Kess Crystal, another fabulous home and garden blogger and Heidi Hoyes have come up with and designed a great tool called “Grab My Credits” to do just that, grab your credits.  I know its proven to be an asset for me, saving me time in getting them all myself.  Now you won’t see much difference in the way I post my credits, though getting the information is the key.  I am going to link you to the website for a text tutorial on how to use this tool and also Kess just did a video on her blog showing how to use as well.  To keep up to date with Grab My Credits go follow the HeikeTech Facebook page.

Have an amazing day!
