A beautiful romance

Morning everyone!  It’s a new round at Cosmopolitan and as usual lots of variety to be found.  I’m wearing a dress by Hilly Haalan, which is great for this summer heat as wearing anything tight in this heat is just unbearable. Yesterday was really hot with a heat index of 102 Fahrenheit… it was a scorcher.

The other items I’m featuring from this round is the swing decor in the corner by Sources. It’s available in a few colors and the planter by Chez Moi, which is part of their outdoor bed set at the event.  I’ll be showing the bed in another post soon to come.  I’m also using a pose by Di’s Opera that is available at Cosmo as well.  The front side braided hair is by Tetra and is one of three new hairstyles she has at Hair Fair.  

The bronze star wind rose decor on the wall is by Blue Sky, and it’s available at Summerfest.

The last items that I want to mention is the garden nook set by DRD, which is a new sponsor and I’m super elated to be blogging for them.  I’m featuring their garden nook set available now at Shiny Shabby.  The set includes the fountain, table and chairs and the flower bucket on top.  DRD is also having a summer sale that you definitely do not want to miss. The sale is going from today to June 27th, and it’s 40% off store wide and 70% on select items that are moving to marketplace and more.  You can view the creators Flickr here to get more details.

Have a splendid Saturday!

Flamingo Island

Hello everyone! I’m still a bit groggy from a bit of a sleep in, but it’s a holiday weekend here and I was in a dream state kind of sleep. My dream last night was riding a horse and then found myself stopping to do something and was inside of a building with my horse, and as I was looking at some stuff in another room someone took my horse.  I retrieved it and then woke up around that part. No idea where that dream came from.. though gives me the urge to look for my horse in-world and go riding.

There were no humans around when I was shooting this picture so I asked some friendly flamingos to join me.  I’ve also used this title before in a previous post from last year when I used some flamingos in a photo for a tropical fair post. Interestingly enough it was also on a 3rd day of the month, except it was June then.

Anyways, today’s picture is all about summer fun showcasing two ongoing events –Summerfest and The Gacha Guardians.  Check out credits for all the details and as always any questions feel free to ask me.

Sand in my eyes

Hello again everyone.  I wasn’t intending to do a second post today, but as I was organizing my photos for this coming week I thought let me get this last one post in since it features items from Tres Chic too.  The top and skirt are by Aleutia, which are just great for taking a stroll on the beach.  The other item from this event I’ve used before, and it’s a pose from Greek Goddess set by Frozen Poses.

The decor is a mixture from a few designers that I blog for.  The first set is the Beach Life one by Dreamscapes Art Gallery, which is their item for Enmeshed Monthly. The set includes towels for sitting at the beach, the umbrella, sand buckets, swim rings, ice cream cup and a few more items not shown. This is a subscription, and pre-orders  were for July 1st, but previous boxes are still available for a slightly higher price.  Visit the Enmeshed Monthly website for more information on this subscription event and for previous boxes.

The beach ready set by Zen Creations is at the main store now, and it includes lots of pillows, towel, radio, beach ball and some decor like the surf board, palm, stool and beach sign.  The round blue mandala design beach towel is by [Merak], and it’s only of many choices that you can find at this round of Shiny Shabby.  All these items have some great sit animations that are wonderful for sitting and laying out at the beach.

Tomorrow it’s another summer scene with a little fun twist.

Yeah, it’s one of those days

Happy Friday!!  It’s a pretty extensive list of credits today so I will just sort of give some brief highlights.  The Arcade ends later tonight.. so it’s really the last chance to grab some fun items before they’re gone as some of the items are exclusives or you can always try finding them in marketplace or in-world locations where they have older gachas.

As the Arcade ends, a new round of The Gacha Guardians starts tomorrow or just under 15 hours to be exact. Lots of great items you’re going to find this round.  My guy here is wearing new releases by Belleza, which are at this round of Men Only Monthly.  Then I’m also showcasing decor by 22769, that you can find at this round of the newest event for men called Man Cave. The shelf with decor is at Shiny Shabby.

Hope it’s a great start to the fabulous weekend ahead!

The beach bar

Good morning everyone.  It’s all about summer these days and this is probably only the beginning of what’s available on the grid for the coming weeks ahead. Today I’m featuring the Cape Cod Country Bar Gacha by DaD Designs at Shiny Shabby.  There are 19 pieces with the bar being the rare, click here to see the key for the whole gacha.

I’m also showing a new release by Concept, which is their Kenya hammocks that are also available at Shiny Shabby.  They come in several colors, so you must go check them out and while I’m showing the pg version I believe there is also an adult version at the event. The drinks and candle on the bar counter are by Sway’s and are part of their gacha at the Arcade.  Few days more before this event ends, so get on over there if you haven’t made it yet.

The last items I’m featuring are the white palms and beach sand by Little Branch, which you can probably find on market place by now.

Have a fabulous rest of the day!

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.

Reflections

Morning everyone! Today is a simple sort of post showcasing another home in the Builder’s Box subscription event.  This is a quarterly event with nothing but homes and skyboxes.  The pre-ordering for the next subscription will be July 15th so visit the website for more information, plus you can view the catalog of the homes in May.  The Daphne cottage is a one room home by Lagom, that has some lovely features like the wall in the top photo that cast some great light and shadows.

I’m also wearing the flower crown by Astralia, which is currently at Shiny Shabby. The crown comes with a HUD for changing the colors.  The cute dog next to me is from the Cheeky Chihuahuas gacha set by JIAN at the Arcade. This is the comfy blanket one and is a rare in the set.

Have a gorgeous day!
