Royal flush

It feels good to be back to blogging, even though getting back into rhythm might take some time.  You know when you have so much to do and very little time.  Now I usually thrive on stuff like that, except it proves to be harder, at least for me, when you can’t focus as clearly as you would like.  I’m sure some of you have moments like this.  My favorite phrase nowadays is this too shall pass and I keep moving.

Just to give you a little glimpse into my life, which has been pretty chaotic lately with lots going on.  I was away a few days to attend a family reunion and celebrating my grandmother’s 85th birthday.  Always a fun time, just a bit tiring when all said and done.  It was also a bit gloomy this year for all of us as we lost three family members within the space of a year.  One was my brother, which was a year just a week before the reunion.  His presence was certainly lacking as he was good at making people laugh even in the most difficult of times and this was one of those occasions.  There are unexpected changes at my work place as well so that when you start to add all these things together you might begin to wonder how I handle it all.  The answer to that is I continue to count my blessings.  I had a 7-month post surgery check up this past week and I continue to have a clean bill of health of being cancer free.

I haven’t even begun to tell you about what’s going on in my Second Life world.  I’ve been working on something new that I’ll be announcing very soon.  Now all this combined makes for one very busy season ahead, so I hope you stay tuned.

Surfing through life

Sometimes the title of my post comes during the scene prep and at other times it’s when I finish my post and I do a preview to make sure it looks decent enough.  This was the latter.  It’s the first thing that came to mind seeing the surfboard. I’m learning to go with it.  It fits. Right?

Showcasing the Slater set by Fancy Decor in collaboration with Commoner for this round of Uber.  Some fantastic pieces in the set, so I hope you go check it out.

Enjoy!

Hello everyone.  I know my title won’t make sense, but the name holds a very special meaning to me and part of my history here in Second Life.  It’s also the name of the constellation wall decor by Cheeky Pea, available as part of a gacha in this current round of Lootbox.  I’m showcasing this amazing Island Resort set by unKindness, available now at Collabor88 and then two adorable decor sets by Ariskea, which are at events as well.  Just peek down below for all the information.

Have a great one!

Blending with the night

The Shirvan is an absolutely gorgeous set by the Loft & Aria at Uber this month.  If you know these two brands that recently joined forces, then you know how creative and talented they both are with their home and garden creations.  I’m thrilled to be showcasing their items and look forward to featuring them in future posts.

The set is available in both pg and adult, and sofa includes four neutral color options on the upholstery and several options for the throw and pillows to help customize it to your preference and style.  The rest of the pieces of the set minus the chandelier not shown are all listed below and all copy and modifiable.

To complete the look I also used the Chidi set by the Loft & Aria.  You can find this set at the main store.

Enjoy!

Always take time to make a joyful mess

Yesterday, in organizing my photos for the week I realized that I got several showcasing items at Bloom.  Now if you’re familiar with this event, then you know it’s a short event that lasts just a little over two weeks with doors closing at the end of the month.  I had the pleasure of blogging the event and it’s always great to be a part of an event like this.  The downside sometimes can be when you also have a lot of sponsors at the event and you try to squeeze everyone in.

Saying that I’ll be doing a second post again tomorrow.  Today’s picture is showcasing a release by DRD for Bloom.  The cake counter is messy and reminiscent of when I bake, because I like bringing everything out, the recipe book, the ingredients, the bowls and baking dish.

The counter is 9 land impact and comes with animated poses. You get to clean, whisk, beat and read the recipe book — great for role-play.  The rest of the items used are listed below.

Sunday silence

Happy Sunday!!  Showcasing items from a few events today, starting with the house I’m using by [Schultz Bros.].  The Le Petit Manoir is gorgeous and I’m really not doing it justice showing just this side of the home, but no doubt I’ll be using it again.  It’s part of the Builder’s Box quarterly subscription box, so visit their website for more information.  This can be purchased off market place or their main store.

FaMESHed is in full swing now and I’m showcasing the Carter Entertainment set by MudHoney. I’ve always been a fan of this creator and lately she’s doing an amazing job with home decor.  I’ve mixed two of her sets here as the sofa and a few decor pieces are from her Greta set at the Blush Event.

The other two items being featured is an outdoor plant that I brought in house and a heart box of chocolates.  The Bird of Paradise plant by Cube Republic Store is available at FaMESHed and makes for a colorful landscaping plant. Then Dust Bunny brought us chocolate candies in a heart just in time for Valentines Day.  They are available at the main store.

I’ll be returning to every other day starting this week, so hope you stay tuned for what’s next. In the meantime enjoy whats left of the weekend!
