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!

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.

Nothing says home like the smell of baking

ionic-005ps1

There was a time that I really enjoyed baking and did a lot of it as I always loved having some coffee dessert on hand for family and friends when they visited, even though I didn’t drink coffee myself.  I still enjoy it even if I bake mostly for a holiday or a special occasion these days. When I moved it was an opportunity to go through the the collection of baking pans, measurement cup sets, gadgets and tools that I acquired over the years.  I downsized considerably.

It’s no different here in Second Life, where I’ve collected a lot of kitchen ware over the years. I’m just not ready to downsize here just yet.  It’s all this wonderful realistic pieces of home goods, baking ware and gadgets that makes our kitchens come to life. I’m not disappointed with the newest releases by Ionic and Serenity Style.  I mixed both with some old gacha favorites to put this kitchen scene together. There’s just too many pieces to reference, but all items used are mentioned below.

I’m also featuring a new hair release by eXxEsS called Citron, which is a long hair style even if you can’t see the back. It includes the new “Breeze” technology that animates the hair and a texture HUD that has 56-single tone hair colors. The lovely dress with a lace pattern is from Noche and it’s available in several colors at The Liaison Collaborative. Make sure to go check out this event, it’s one of the best for home, garden, fashion and a whole lot more.

Anyways, thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy the rest of your day, night or whatever it is for you right now.

I had good intentions to take the week between Christmas and the New Year to organize my inventory a little.  It didn’t quite work out that way and it had more to do with not being in the right frame of mind to tackle such a project right now.  Though it needs to happen fairly soon as I am getting ready to tip a number I never expected to reach and it really amazes me that I am still able to function.

I finally got around to opening some more of my arcade purchases and used a few pieces to go along with this bedroom furniture that is part of the “Gold & White” Gacha set by Bee Designs. It should be available at the main store or will be in a few days.

I hope to get one or two more posts in before the New Year and maybe then take a small break.
