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.

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!

I’m doing a second post today as I want to show you some more items from Tres Chic, which is still going for another week.  There are plenty of goodies in this round, so you must really visit if you haven’t been.

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.

There is purpose in your season of waiting

Happy Monday and Happy Memorial Day for us here in America. Normally it’s a relaxing day for us and usually we do a cookout, though not this year. My siblings are further away now with making moves to other states, so getting together isn’t as easy.  That aside.. today is a day of remembrance for those who served in our armed services protecting our country. In this day and age and from what we see all over the world it’s never been more important to feel blessed for those men and woman who served and those who serve now.

I wish everyone a fantastic and peaceful day wherever you are.  Today’s post is all about Cosmopolitan.  If you’re not familiar with this event, it’s one that takes place every two week bringing you an array of new releases in clothes, furniture, poses and everything that makes our lives here in Second Life a little more enjoyable. This round will end on June 4th, so you still have time to grab some fabulous goodies.

Enjoy the rest of your day!!

Saltwater Cottage

Morning everyone.  I hope it was a pleasant weekend for all of you, mine was fine up until I started to get a cold and now I’m all sniffles and shakes and all that crappy stuff you feel when it’s at the onset.  I’m trying to desperately shake off before it gets any worse, because I have so much to do in both worlds.

Today I am showcasing a couple of things starting with this marine edition of the saltwater cottage by Thistle Homes for May’s Builders Box.  If you’re not familiar with this subscription event, visit the Builders Box website for more information but I’ll give you a short and sweet version.

It’s a pre-order event that only happens quarterly, and every box is full of homes, skyboxes and other types of buildings. If you order before the release date the price is lower and you get to be surprised as you won’t be able to view what you purchased until the release day. Or if you rather see the items beforehand, then you pay the higher price once the release day reveals the creations for the month. This is one of the lovely homes in this month’s box — below credits find more specifics on the home. I’ll be showcasing a few more in the coming weeks and next two months.

The other item that I am showing is the beach path set by 22769 out now at We ❤ Role-Play. I listed every piece that I used, but there are still a few pieces not shown. It’s great addition if you have land on water.

Anyways, that’s it for now.. hope it’s a great day ahead!

I showed you just a glimpse of one of the previews of The Arcade late last night with my previous post showing only one item of the JIAN collection, which I will show more in the coming days.

Today I am featuring another preview almost showing the complete collection from the Spring Things Gacha by Hive.  The whole collection consists of 17 commons and 2 rares with land impact ranging from the highest of 73 for the house to 1 for the smaller items.

2222

If you want to take a peek at the key for the gacha, you can find it here or visit the The Arcade site to find the whole preview guide.
