Storytelling

This picture was born out of the request from a creator if we could include avatars in the blog post using their decor — to see some form of emotion, tension or message that creates a story that others can identify with.  Most often than not I don’t like to pose myself in decor pictures, because I want the focus to be on the decor and not myself unless I am also showcasing fashion.

Though it was a reasonable request that I felt that I could manage and since I had some sexy pieces of lingerie that I needed to also blog the idea for me, myself and I came to fruition.  The decor is the club sofa set by N4RS available now at FaMESHed, which is made up of the brown sofa, decorative table beside it with the candle and rug.  The black lingerie is by V/. VoluptasVirtualis and it’s at the Crystal Heart Festival with the hair I’m wearing by No.Match at The Liaison Collaborative. The scarlet harness set is by The Forge and this is at the recently open new round of The Fantasy Collective.

Enjoy the rest of your day!

Ocean air, salty hair

Hello everyone!

Today’s scene is all about summer and being at the beach. Again, I am showcasing items from several events around the grid starting with some fashion and decor at Cosmopolitan, which this round ends on the 15th.  I’m wearing bikini tops and bottoms by Avale and my guy here is wearing baggy jeans rolled up into shorts by A&D Clothing. The good vibes print frame is by Calm and made for a good title as well.

Hair Fair is still ongoing and ends on the 16th and remember this event supports the Wigs for Kids, so if you’re able to purchase more hair. Many creators also left gifts and I’m wearing the gift by Iconic, so make sure you grabs your gift too!

The Liaison Collaborative ends July 30th, and Ariskea is participating with this beach hut. Another event that is ongoing right now is The Gacha Guardians that ends at the end of the month. I’m showing gacha items by Lagom, the rare house in the background and then some beach decor accessories around me.

Jian is participating in this month of FaMESHed with this pupper pool party that comes with two animated pugs in floaters drifting and spinning in the pool. Is that cuteness or what?

Then I’m also featuring items by Anhelo, which are not new but fantastic decor items for the summer season.  The car is decor only and comes with various fun poses as is the beach set of parasol and chairs.  It’s at their main store and comes in various colors.

Hope it’s been a fabulous day for you all!!

The windy effects

A quick post this morning as I try to get a jump start on my day to beat the afternoon rainstorm.  I love rain, just prefer not to be driving when it’s pouring. Anyways, showcasing some more summer type items mostly from this round of The Liaison Collaborative and sporting shoes and hair from the Arcade.

Have a fantastic Saturday!

Home office

I’m back this evening with another post and again it’s a mixture of fashion and decor.  I’ll begin with the home decor items as this is my first post introducing you to this year’s Relay For Life Home & Garden Expo that just opened yesterday and will end on June 4th.  It’s an annual event that raises money for Relay For Life of Second Life (RFL of SL). The Relay For Life is the American Cancer Society’s signature fundraising event, and RFL of SL is one of its virtual counterparts. Please visit both the Home & Garden Expo website and the RFL of SL website for more information.

The exhibitors participating at this event are required to have two 100% donation items at the Expo. These items must be new and exclusive to the Expo for the duration of the event.  Bloggers for this event are assigned to a particular sim and they are required to blog any donation items from their sim first before they can blog any other items. I believe there is a total of 9 sims for this event and I happened to get assigned to one that had relatively few creators and while I was a bit disappointed that none of these creators had blogger boxes its actually given me a little freedom to blog who ever had boxes out at other sims.  That being the case I am going to try and do my very best to feature as many creators as I can during the event that will include a mixture of donated and other items.

Today’s post has items by World of Wood, a store that specializes in quality wooden homes, lodges, cabins and furniture.  I just really liked this office set and bookshelves that come with several texture options for the wood.  I like dark wood so I chose mahogany.  Theory is a store that carries classic and contemporary furnishings and they have the English chest on barley twist legs and the brass box terrarium at the event.  The last item featured from this event is the trellis with orange climbing roses just outside the window by TerraShop, a store that makes quality mesh flowers and plants.

Then I’m featuring items by 22769, a well known store that carries a little bit of everything in home and garden decor.  They are participating in a few events this month. The Colonial lounge set is their release for The Challenge Event.  The set includes the bench, side table, elephant picture and the pineapple lamp.  The plant on the stand and on the chest are their release for this month’s round of The Liaison Collaborative, which I’ve previously featured in another recent post. The plate with donuts is from their Sugar Shock gacha set at The Gacha Garden. If you want to see the key for this set, visit here.  The cute puppy underneath the bench is by {Your Dreams}, and is at Tres Chic.

If you’re still reading at this point, thank you! Most of the fashion items are by creators participating at this month’s round of Tres Chic.  Hair by Sintiklia, with this lovely dress by Clef de Peau and watch by [Zoom].  The heels I’m wearing is a new release by Empire at this round of Collabor88. The pose used is by an lar [poses] available at Tres Chic.

Peruse the credits for everything else shown in the pictures.

Sweet friendships always refreshes the soul

Morning and Happy Friday!! I hope your weekend is off to a good start and while I have somewhat of a busy one with things I have to get done I’m looking forward to mine.

Today’s post is a collaboration with fellow blogger and someone I now call friend, Jules, who has her own blog at Sunshine & Sparkles.  It’s an appropriate name for her, as her personality is all sunshine and sparkles and I really like that about her. Plus she shares my sun sign of Aries, with our birthdays just days apart, so we’re finding that we have a lot in common including our feisty nature.  I think she has more patience than me and might not be as stubborn as I can be at times.  I know that’s hard to believe, but alas it’s true as much as I hate to admit it.  I do try to reign it in, because it’s not really endearing qualities to have.

Anyways, check out credits below for the amazing stuff we’re showing and as soon as Jules posts I’ll link up her blog once again here.

Have a fabulous rest of the day!
