Summertime cottage

The new month always brings the onslaught of ongoing periodic events and today’s post features some decor from sponsors who are participating at these events.  The house I’m featuring is the latest release by DaD Design, the summertime cottage is just in time if you’re looking for a new home that’s great for this summer season. The blowing curtains are also a new release by this designer and both are available at FaMESHed.

The orange and yellow poppies are by Heart Gardens, and again another beautiful set of wildflowers to help you decorate your homes and gardens with.  The poppies are also available in white, red and blue and in combination of colors for rows and patches.   The mossy stones are by Moon-Sha and available at this round of We ❤ Role-Play.  I thought at first to showcase this home near water, but then  decided to go with more of a rocky mountain type summertime home.

The last item being featured is the Jeffrey pine by Little Branch, available now at Cosmopolitan.  I really the shape of this tree, because it sort of gives it a story of its own. You’re bound to see me using it again.

Below credits I have provided two additional photos to show the inside and then a fuller view of the home form outside and then notes from the creator of DaD Design that gives you all the details on the house.

One could be used as a small kitchen/dining room combo while the other room could be a bedroom. With the spacious floorplan you could do so many things with this cottage, such as a cottage for summer camp, a office, and anything you could imagine. The windows of the whole house can be opened and closed which are arranged in different heights to create the most natural look. Since its summer, don’t be afraid to open the windows and say hello to your neighbors you see in the yard.

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.

Happy Sunday! It’s going to be a lazy day for me even though I do have a few things on my to do list that must get done by today. I hope it’s been a relaxing weekend for all of you.

Today’s post is a fairly simple one and it’s been sitting in my drafts to get posted and it’s my last showcasing items from this round of Tres Chic, which ends on July 5th.

Enjoy what’s left of the weekend!

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!

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**

It’s another mixture of fashion and home decor in today’s post with items from all over the grid as there’s just an overabundance of events going on. Some that are fairly new and others well known monthly ones.

Check everything out below.. and have a fabulous rest of the day!

Wanderlust spirit

Happy Sunday to everyone. I’m a bit wordy today, so to break up the text I moved the picture to the middle. If you just look at my pretty pictures.. sorry, you have to just scroll down a little to find it.

It’s still fairly early at that start of writing this and if you know anything about me then you might know that I’m definitely not a morning person. Though over the last 15 years sleeping in even after staying up late hasn’t been much of an option.

Though I’m sure that I’ll fall prey to a nap this afternoon, especially as I’m not feeling too great and the reason I hit the bed early last night. I think my body wants to catch a cold and I’m all sniffles this morning.

Before I forget and mention what I’m showcasing today I want to give a shout out to a silent follower of mine from Spain who left me a very nice message yesterday. It made me smile the rest of the day when I read it. It’s always nice to hear from someone on how much they enjoy your blog and appreciate what you do. I don’t say it enough, but I am appreciate to everyone who follows, reads or just enjoys my pictures.

Now for what I am showing today — more great items to be found at 6th Republic, which opened its doors yesterday.  This event is based on Europe, so every designer got to choose what part of Europe they wanted to represent. The Hive has this cute seaside shack with 11-15 land impact that comes in a raised or non-raised and with or without doors and two subtle color versions inspired from Cornwall, UK county beaches. I’m using one with doors, but did remove the scripts to keep the doors open.  If you peek just inside you see the rug and the lamp on the table that are from CMYK, another creator participating at the 6th Republic event.  These are created representing Greece.

The last items being shown are the decor plants by 22769.  These are available at Shiny Shabby that runs until May 15th.  The 6th Republic is open until May 20th, so you still have plenty of time to get to these two events to grab the latest and greatest!
