The huge house behind the hill

There is just under a week left before the arcade closes its doors and what a fun time it’s been showcasing some of the wonderful things there.  I’ve been wanting to feature this lovely home by Scarlet Creative, though between being away and then catching up with pictures it just wasn’t possible until now.  It’s another wonderful home by this creator, but you do need to have the space and and prims as land impact is 259 for home alone. I’m only showing a few pieces of the commons as there are 16 pieces to collect with the rare being the house. You can take a view of the items on the creators Flickr here.

I’m also showing the new animated summer wind trees by Little Branch, which are available now at Shiny Shabby.  Little Branch has been updating all their landscaping items to have animation, so soon you’ll be able to get another wonderful experience when using their trees and flowers.

It’s evening time here so it’s too late to wish some of you who are in other countries to enjoy the rest of your weekend, but for the rest of you who are still a few hours away from tomorrow enjoy what’s left as we head into a new week.

Lounging around

Happy Thursday!  I know some of you are ecstatic as its only one day closer to the weekend.  I’ll be traveling over the weekend and gone for the week so I am hoping that I can work on doing some pictures today and tomorrow so that I can just focus on writing out credits and posting the pictures.

Today I am showcasing items from the newly opened round of Cosmopolitan and then a few sponsors and it’s all about summer things.

As always everything shown is listed below the pictures under credits. I wish you all a fabulous day and a good start to the weekend!

Summer breeze

I’m in a rather lethargic mood this afternoon and if I was inclined it be easy to crawl into bed and sleep the rest of the afternoon away.  Though I have some things I need to get done or rather started so it’s not really an option. Plus it would wreck additional havoc on my sleeping schedule and that’s pretty out of whack right now.

Today I’m showcasing this new bedroom set by [Tia] that is available at FaMESHed. The weathered vintage white set is super lovely and it can be purchased as a set or by individual pieces. the flowers in the vase next to me are by Pixel Mode and are a gacha item at the Arcade.

I’m wearing a new hair style by Tableau Vivant, which is one of the styles in their Summer Hairplay gacha at the Arcade.  The night dress is by Sweet Kajira and it’s available at the newest round of We ❤ Role-Play.  It’s a medieval style dress, but it really passes as modern to me as it looks just like some of the night dresses my grandmother wears.  The pose is in the Heather Series by an lar [poses], that was at the just finished round of Tres Chic, so it should be available at the main store soon.

Until next time!

Tropical paradise getaway

Happy Thursday and one day closer to the weekend! Unfortunately, I can’t get into the mode of relaxing just yet, because I have somewhat of a busy weekend ahead. These days I seem to be always rushing off somewhere as I will be shortly once I post this, so I’ll get right into it. Today’s post is all about fashion and home decor.  The new hair is by Wasabi Pills, a sleek rigged mesh hair called Dahlia that’s pulled back. Great hair for headpieces, which I enjoy using from time to time. You can find it at Uber.

The top and skirt are by Blanco Originals and come in various colors, and perfect for taking a stroll out on the beach with the two slits on the side.  These pieces along with the Cubana necklace by Shanghai that comes in three color options set in gold are at Tres Chic.

Then last I’m showcasing a new gacha set by Serenity Style, which is a new sponsor that I added to my roster of home and garden decor. If you’re not familiar with their stuff, then hopefully you will come to know it as I’ll be showing a lot more. The Counting Waves gacha is made up of the bungalow, and all the furniture around it not including the modular dock and plants.  As you can see perfect for creating that tropical paradise.

Last I’m also using a pose by :LW: Poses at Tres Chic.  I am using only the female pose from the couples pose titled, “You have a choice,” which you can see I made a choice to go at it alone.

Have a great Thursday!

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!!

Riverside Cottage

Morning everyone, even though it’s just on the cusp of it turning noon so good afternoon too.  Just a quick post today to show the newest home by DaD Design. The Riverside Cottage is available at the Ultra Event.  It’s got a footage of 24,5 x 16,3 with a land impact of 39 including the plants. It has simple lines with large windows and the entrance has two planters with a selection of bushes and includes the walking path.

The lights on the walkway are from Needful Prims Store and are the donation item at the RFL Home & Garden Expo, so all proceeds from this go to benefit Relay for Life. The trees in this post are by DaD Design and are older landscaping items by this creator and slightly higher in prim, but still awesome for your landscaping needs.

Have a great one!

Edited: I forgot to mention the arbour bench by [Merak]. which is available at the main store. It has a land impact of 8 and comes with animations for female, male and couples as well some activities animations.
