Visiting Santorini

Tres Chic opened its doors a few days ago and if you’ve been then you know it’s all about ancient Greece as the theme this month is all things “Grecian.”  The event is ongoing until July 5th. I’m featuring buildings and decor by Serenity Style, {Your Dreams}, Shutter Field & Decor Junction that can be found at the event.

I’m also showing decor by Anhelo that is in Santorini Blue, which is one of two designs that will be available for Fifty Linden Friday later today.  The iron table and chairs with the decor are by Kalopsia at the Arcade.

Have a fabulous Friday!

PS — Exis make room for me ❤

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.

To thine own self be true

Morning everyone, even though that by the time that I finish writing this it will be gone into afternoon. I had such a long day yesterday, where the majority of it was spent in one room after another just waiting and patience isn’t my strongest suit. Though yesterday is over and today is another day and while my body is still sickly my mind is sharp.

Today is a mixed post of fashion and decor. Jules, fellow blogger and now friend said something that resonated and I’ve often thought of myself. Are we a bit redundant talking about everything we’re showing when it’s all listed in credits? For the most part and I would say 99% of bloggers only blog what they like and reviewing is literally absent.

I think what most of us do is give sneak previews or showcase items in how we may dress up a fashion item or decor or landscape the various genres of items we receive. Often giving inspiration to others who may not know how to fit something into a room, home, land or even their bodies.  I for one lack the fashion skills that others have to find the perfect jewelry and makeup to accessorize my look. It’s a bit of laziness to go digging in my inventory and just because I use the very minimal in real life as well that it’s carried over into SL.  That’s one thing to love about the diversity of blogs we follow. I get to be awed by seeing how you fashionistas out there look and put yourself together and envy you just a little.

Anyways, I’ve rambled on long enough and here we are at credits. All great stuff right?

By the way make sure to go check out Jules awesome blog at Sunshine & Sparkles!

Happy Sunday! My post is very short as I don’t have much time before I have to finish getting ready to leave town until Tuesday.  I will not be posting until my return as I am not taking a laptop for the short duration.

All the details are below, but showing all amazing things from designers/creators and events that I participate in.  The newest event being featured today is Tres Chic, which opens up two days from now on 17th January.

Have a great rest of Sunday and see you sometime Wednesday!

PS — check out my latest addition to my family — is he not adorable?  I haven’t named him yet, as I’m waiting for a name to gradually come to me.
