Vacancies at the Florida Motel

SF 014

If you didn’t get your fill of summer things at Summer Tropical Fair that just ended then it’s a good thing as Summerfest ’16 just started today. It’s back for the 4th year to bring us some more hot summer fun shopping from June 18th through July 10th.

BoOgErS is participating again this year with some cute decor and wearable pizza and rainbow kites.  Just the perfect thing to entertain the little ones outside and wear them out for bedtime.  One of the releases by Seven Emporium at the event is this flashing Florida Motel Sign.  It feels like I never left home.  Chuckles.

If you’re the sporty water type then there is these sup boards by Balaclava, which gives you the choice to chill out with two relaxing sits and a laying animation or you can yoga with six different poses.  If that’s not enough then how about paddling away on water with the paddle that comes included to paddle on water.  Several colors to choose from.

For calmer waters Jammin has this old wooden rowboat with oars, with two seating positions that have four assorted poses. If you want a bit of refreshment for the blasting sun make sure you pick up this cute drinking rafts by  RC Cluster that holds a drink.

The beach chime tree is by unKindness available currently at this round of The Chapter Four, which ends in a couple of days.  You have just enough time to get them at 50% during the event.  The log side table is by Industry 7, a new brand from the same creator of 7mad;Ravens and affiliated with unKindness.   The complete set is an additional log table and some candles, which are not shown.

I’ve previously blogged these items, but I’m also showing one of the rare beach corgis by Jian currently at the arcade and the tropical palm trees by [Noble Creations] available now at Cosmopolitan.

Now moving on to what I’m wearing.  The bikini top and briefs are from Mimikri, one of my frequented stores when I first started Second Life.  I’m happily rediscovering it again.  The bikinis are available in several colors at On9.

Lastly, the pose I’m on is another one from the set Ella by Amitie, also available currently at On9.

Oh I keep forgetting to mention this. In honor of Second Life’s birthday there are several events where you can find participating designers giving out a piece of cake containing a gift.  One of those events is Hairology.  The last few posts in both my blogs are featuring hairs that were gifts.

Enjoy the rest of your Saturday!!

Battle of the Bear Bands

Boogers 005ps

I was happily surprised when I opened up the blogger package of bears from BoOgErS for the upcoming round of The Arcade that starts on June 1st, because of what they represent.  It’s musical bear bands.

You see my father was a musician and his love of music was profound. It was his passion. He played the accordion since he was just a young kid. In his last years my dad still played every now and then with local groups and I recall one or two times where he participated in events where they had battle of the bands.  I don’t think he cared much about winning.. for him it was just doing something he loved.

Today is the anniversary of his passing and so I brought little me out to play the accordion in remembrance of him.  As you can see I suffered a little stage fright.

The Arcade opens June 1st and if you want to get all the latest news, visit their website here.

The band bears gacha will be 25L per play.  There are 15 commons, 2 rares, and 1 reward, which is something new.  You can get details on the player reward system on their website as well under news.

The other new thing with this June round is that there will be two identical Sims to shop from and two identical homestead sims to cam shop from.

Have a great Wednesday!

One of the joys of motherhood

Aphrodite 009

Happy Friday everyone!

It’s Mothers Day on Sunday so today I am showing one of the breakfast trays that Aphrodite Shops has available to help you honor and celebrate your mother in-world.  This version is for a mom and two kids and has some great animations and attachable props to enjoy the food when you surprise her in bed.  Lots of other items to choose from if breakfast isn’t your thing.

Little me is drinking chocolate milk in a sippy cup by *BoOgErS* that will be available starting on May 15th at the Color Me Cute event as a gacha item.  There are 12 cups in the set with no rares just commons.

The bed that we are on is actually made for a couple. It’s made by Mistique and is available at the main store.  It comes in a few colors and each has 20 couple animations.

I am showing one of the four available colors of the hanging rattan chair by HJM Designs. The chair is their item at the Perfect 10 Event that started on the 1st and goes through the 15th of the month.  The chair is equipped with 23 single and 6 couple animations.  It’s mesh and only 4 prims land impact and a great price of 80L at the event.

Last and certainly not least are all these kittens by Jian.  Today for Fifty Linden Friday you can grab this kitten scratching post for 50L.  It’s a cute decor item that on touch you can change the texture of the post, kittens and feathers.  The other two kittens on the pillows are for Midnight Madness.  It’s a unique event that is time specific and limited quantities.  Click on the link in credits to visit the web site to learn more about this event as I learned also there is a new option added on this month.

Enjoy the rest of your Friday!

Boogers 017

Check out all these cute bears!  They are the rest of the bear collection by BoOgErS currently at the Arcade.

Little me is wearing some items from the All The Little Things event.  However , there seems to be an issue going on with the sim where the event is hosted, so I am listing only the creator/designer landmark as they item may have been moved to their own stores.

The cute dress and all the accessories is by Q’s Quties with the ladybug boots by Little Llama, both stores cater to kids in Second Life.  The pose is by p.o.s.e., a great store for toddleedoo poses.

Enjoy the rest of your Wednesday!

Make it a celebration everyday

017-2

The bears coming to the Arcade this round by BoOgErS are the cutest things. They each have a certain theme or holiday spirit to them.  As I was looking at them all I found myself drawn to this Cinco De Mayo bear, because of my ancestral heritage.   This is not the actual size as I supersized it and when I did the poses sort of then materialized for this picture.

Who says we can’t celebrate early right?

The southwestern home in the background is by Glas Houses called the Granelda is available at the Home & Garden Expo.  It is truly remarkable how much choices we have when it comes homes and decor and creating the home life we may only dream about.  For some it’s just creating something entirely different to what you may be used to… really the choice is yours.   The Granelda is quite roomy with large rooms and it has two fireplaces throughout the house.

The Expo is open until March 6th and just announced a Photo Contest!

Preparation for another day

Are you waiting anxiously for the new round of the Arcade? The trading chats are starting to buzz again as people prepare their lists.

Aria 007-2

Today I am showing the Bella Glamour Room Collection items from [ARIA], who is participating in this round.  The complete collection consists of 3 rare items and 12 commons.  The rare items include the vanity table, chaise, and chandelier. The common items include the vanity mirror, vanity stool, mirror & makeup bag, perfume tray, jewelry boxes, and vase with roses as well as the faux cowhide rug, side table, book pile, teacup, vase with single rose and framed prints.

Snapshot_008

There are texture options for the chaise and rose vases while the chaise and stool come with singles animations and some with attachable props.  I’ve listed the items in the collection at the bottom.

I am also showing a sneak peak of one of the bears by BoOgErS called the Mother’s Day Bears Cuddle.  I will be showing more bears very soon, but I couldn’t resist putting in one in today’s post.

Snapshot_009

The Home & Garden Expo is still ongoing.  I’m showing the elegant chairs that have 9 animations and table from HJM Designs.  There is a vase with flowers that is part of this set not shown.  You will some other sets that go with this collection at the expo.

The orchid vase and arrangement is by Kaerri and is also at the expo.  All these featured creators/designers have some wonderful home and garden decor and not just some of the donation items that benefit Relay For Life.  They also have new releases to help decorate your home.

Snapshot_010

All this shown in the Expo Skybox, one of the new releases by aKa, at the Home & Garden Expo.  Personally, I don’t do the skybox living, because I love having the ocean view and being surrounded by nature on the ground level.  Though on occasion I have enjoyed them and especially those with city views.

Enjoy the rest of your Saturday!

Sometimes life rewards you with the unexpected

DDD 005

I’m a bit wired after spending the last six hours at the hospital and while I should have gone straight to bed I find myself unable to sleep.  I really had planned to get this post done earlier before the unexpected change in plans.  I’m also not certain if I will get around to doing anymore posts outside of what I may already have completed.  In any case I plan to keep this one short.

The hair that I’m wearing is by eXeEsS and like all her hairs they just seem to have a natural feel to them.  It’s available at the main store.   The other item is the wreath that is wrapped around me.  It’s by Dysfunctional Designs and also available at the main store.  It’s only 1 prim and if you’ve already done all the decorating you can handle another great way to use it is like a picture frame for taking a funny picture like everyone does in real life.
