Surf’s Up Motel

Hello everyone!  I hope you’re having a glorious day. Today’s post is a combination of Summerfest and The Gacha Guardians.  I’m not going into much details, but will leave the pictures and credits to speak for themselves. The rest of the pictures below from this point on are to give more of a close up of the items shown in my main photo above.  They are not processed much only crop and a slight blur.

I should point out that the pillows on the chairs are not part of the set, just in case you thought they were.


Make sure not to miss the small gecko there on the floor.

The girls of summer

Happy Saturday afternoon!!  I’m starting off my weekend with a headache, which is not a fun way to begin though I’m hoping by the next few hours it’s all gone. Today’s post is a collaboration with friend and fellow blogger Lotus Mastroianni. I give her all the credit for building the set even arranging all the items that I put down for us to use.

It’s all about summer in this post starting with this adorable short hair style by Iconic called Mae, which is a new release at Hair Fair.  I grew up with a short hair style practically until I was 20 and then I started to let it grow out so I sort of have a soft spot for short hairs.  I’ll be showing you some more great hair styles by Iconic at the Hair Fair in some of my upcoming posts.

The clothes I’m wearing is by Justice and it’s from their Liv gacha outfit at the newest summer round of The Gacha Guardians.  The bubble gum scoops ice cream that I’m enjoying is by RazzBerry Inc., also at gacha event. My cute summery shoes are by Empire and these come in the various sizes to fit most mesh feet, but what I love is that they come also in toddleedoo sizes and are available at the Toddleedoo Fair.

The decor I’m showcasing is by Velvet Whip, which is part of their pool party gacha at The Gacha Guardians.  The key to the set can be viewed here, with the cocktails tray of two drinks being the gift of the guardians.  Visit The Gacha Guardians website to learn more about the event and how to play to receives one of two gifts of the guardian.

Other decor is listed below, but all great summer finds at various events around the grid.  Please visit Lotus’ blog “Dressed like it-girls” to get the credits of what she is wearing and pose she is using.

Have a great one!

Exterior beauty, without the depth of a kind soul is merely decoration

I got off to a late start with showcasing the Tres Chic event this month, so I’m in the midst of wrapping up my posts and the reason for a second post today.  I hope you all have had an opportunity to visit this event and in case you haven’t there is still about a week left before it ends.  Everything I’m wearing including the pose that I’m using can be found at this event, well, all except the new skin by *YS&YS* called Maddie.  It’s part of the June Powder Pack subscription that can still be purchased at Marketplace

In case you might have missed my initial post on the Tres Chic event this month, it’s all about ancient Greece.  The lovely hair that I’m wearing is by EMO-tions and can be found in various colors and just to go off my usual I decided to go with a platinum color.  The gown is by Masoom and also available in a few colors and I’ve been sort of stuck on white for a while now, which if you’ve been with me for a while my color of choice has always been black in the past. Change can be easy sometimes. The bracelet is by Enchante’ and I thought it went very well with what I was wearing as well as the shoes by Mosquito’s Way. The pose is one of a few by Luane’s World that is on offer at this month’s event.  I will have one more post featuring items from Tres Chic and then all about summer decor as I get into Summerfest and no doubt maybe a couple of non summer posts and then it will probably be the start of next months events including the Home Show.

Have a great one!

In every walk with nature one receives far more than he seeks..

Good morning, as it’s still morning here for me and I’m still somewhat groggy from a late night and little sleep. I definitely need a shot of caffeine, but more like a coke or even a root beer rather than coffee. When it’s so unbearably hot I can’t fathom drinking hot liquids or even having any type of soup unless it’s French onion soup, because that’s one of my favorites.

Before I start rambling I’ll move on to what I’m showing today.  It’s sort of a mixture of fashion and decor and it’s from several sponsors who are at events and then items from Cosmopolitan.

It’s a busy week for me as I try to wrap up a project in real life so you might be getting a few posts without much commentary.

Have a fabulous week ahead!!

In my own thoughts today

Happy Thursday and one day closer to the weekend. It’s a post and run this afternoon before the rain sets in, so I’m going to point you to credits so that you can see where all this amazing stuff is from.

Have a fabulous rest of the day!

Fun at the drive-in diner

Getting in another post today to share with you the start of the Vintage Fair, plus it seems it’s a theme that has crossed over onto other events this month.  Participating at the Vintage Fair Event is [Tia], who brings a bit of nostalgic fun with her release of the Betty’s Diner Set.  The second picture gives you close up of some of the items from the set, which is the retro telephone booth with public phone, one of the signs of a few in the set, and the table with four color chairs and the items on all the tables. Fantastic set to give you a little taste of a by-gone era.

I’m also showing you a new release by unKindness, which is Lucky’s Drive-In Diner set at Collabor88. The set includes the larger pieces and the connected tables and drive-in menu signs.  It’s another fantastic set in my opinion.  Collabor88 runs from the 8th of the month to 6th of July and the Vintage Fair goes from 9th of June to the 25th of June. If you click on the logo for the event below the credits, it will take you directly to the web site where you can get all sort of other great information on the event and whose participating as well as the map of where each participant is located.

I have been wanting to try this method of using a frame on my photos and thought this was a good opportunity to try as it lends to the whole vintage look. It’s not something that I will do all the time, but might just try it again.

Have a fantastic one!

Seasoned with a lot of love

Hello everyone!  I’m here later than usual due to a change in my normal routine. While I’m not set to any specific time when it comes to blogging my thoughts are that it is worthwhile to adhere to a schedule as it gives us a bit of discipline and for me it’s also been a good tool to stay focused and not fall behind.

I won’t be long winded. I promise. It just means you will have to peruse credits to find everything that my picture is showing.  The items being showcased are at the Relay for Life Home & Garden Expo, which ends on June 4th.  I hope you’ve had a chance to go and support the worthy cause behind this annual event. Funds are raised for Relay for Life of Second Life, that ultimately goes to support the efforts of the American Cancer Society through it’s signature event Relay for Life.

Have a great one!
