Modern day classics

Happy weekend!! Just some more fantastic decor that I’m showcasing today from sponsors and events including a hunt!  Fancy Decor continues to amaze with this modern set out now at the Red Light District, which I added the coffee table to go with it by [Merak], available now at the main store.

To keep within the same color scheme I used the silver pieces from (luc) set of cranes and thistle sculptures at Illuminate, a brand new home and garden event.  Few commons pieces by 22769 from their picnic by the sea gacha at the Arcade.

The Land of Rainbows sim has a Easter Egg Hunt taking place until April 6th, and trust me you really want to do this one as it has several great pieces of decor that you would want in your inventory.  I’m showing the chocolate bunny from HEXtraordinary and the black Easter egg is from also Known as, but I think it’s their actual egg that contained their gift. I used it to fill my bowl.

The weather has been a bit chilly the last couple of days and I quite like it. It’s the perfect sweater weather or preferably like in this case perfect for scarcely dressed in front of a fire.

I’m in Florida, so there isn’t much use for one here and if it’s cold then you just turn on the heat if you have a central heat and air unit system. Though I once bought a CD that you can play on your television that has the effects of a cozy fire. It was pretty cool and entertaining for awhile. I should try it again sometimes.

Anyways, hope it’s a fabulous weekend for you all..stay warm!

Well not much to say this afternoon as I’m literally here only to publish this post and then I’m out the door.  I’ll return to normal some day soon. Maybe. Normal is boring right?

Until then.. have a great one!

Timeless aging

If you’re familiar with Death Row Designs, that is also known as DRD, then you know the quality and the overall awesome creativity they are known for.  They recently introduced their new concept; the Shadow Box, a monthly subscription box that has a bit of mystery to it. Something new and unknown once a month, with a bonus reward if you purchase every box in the series, which is 6 months.

I’m going to link you to the Death Row Designs website where you can learn all about this new subscription box and how to subscribe. You will not be at all disappointed if you do.

Just opening the box is an amazing experience! You click the nicely wrapped box tied with rope, which sets it to start animating to unwrap itself and as the paper and rope fall to the side a beautiful standing jewelry box is revealed that also animates opening its doors on the side and top and you automatically receive two folders containing the light and dark sets of the series.

I’m showing the items in the light version set. As you can see they are remarkably well done.  The sofa and chair have sit animations as well as the piano chair with objects having a land impact that range from 2 to 18.

Enjoy!

Enjoying the country atmosphere

Howdy!!  I’m practicing my southern drawl when I say that.  Ok. I’m teasing.  I don’t have a drawl or an accent for that matter.  As I mentioned the other day in my post where I featured a farmhouse and decor I use to think about wanting to live in the countryside.  Yet, I don’t even listen to country music or wear anything country much less jeans in real life.

Though I like wearing the country style here in SL from time to time and if you do too then it’s time to visit this month’s round of The Liaison Collaborative. The theme is all about “Country Chic.”

Also showcasing some more items from The Gacha Garden, so take a look at credits for everything shown.

Have a great one!!

A beautiful romance

Morning everyone!  It’s a new round at Cosmopolitan and as usual lots of variety to be found.  I’m wearing a dress by Hilly Haalan, which is great for this summer heat as wearing anything tight in this heat is just unbearable. Yesterday was really hot with a heat index of 102 Fahrenheit… it was a scorcher.

The other items I’m featuring from this round is the swing decor in the corner by Sources. It’s available in a few colors and the planter by Chez Moi, which is part of their outdoor bed set at the event.  I’ll be showing the bed in another post soon to come.  I’m also using a pose by Di’s Opera that is available at Cosmo as well.  The front side braided hair is by Tetra and is one of three new hairstyles she has at Hair Fair.  

The bronze star wind rose decor on the wall is by Blue Sky, and it’s available at Summerfest.

The last items that I want to mention is the garden nook set by DRD, which is a new sponsor and I’m super elated to be blogging for them.  I’m featuring their garden nook set available now at Shiny Shabby.  The set includes the fountain, table and chairs and the flower bucket on top.  DRD is also having a summer sale that you definitely do not want to miss. The sale is going from today to June 27th, and it’s 40% off store wide and 70% on select items that are moving to marketplace and more.  You can view the creators Flickr here to get more details.

Have a splendid Saturday!

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.

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!

We repeat what we don’t repair

Happy Friday and hopefully for some of you it’s already a great start to the weekend.  I have to make a trip into downtown later today and that’s always a bit hectic at any time on a Friday, so I’m not looking forward to the traffic rush as everyone is looking to get somewhere.

Today I’m featuring some decor items starting with the auto repair shop by Nomad currently available at Draftsman that is still ongoing until May 17th.  The footprint of the shop is 11 x 16M, with a land impact of 50 and available with copy/mod rights.

The truck decor by Mesh India at the newest round of Cosmopolitan came in handy for this scene as you can see there was a truck needing repair.  The truck decor is a gacha set.

Last item that I want to mention is the new red elder trees by Little Branch, which are available at Draftsman as well.  These are season trees so that means on touch you can pick the season you want your leaves to be.

That it’s for now.. have a great one!
