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!!

Sand in my eyes

Hello again everyone.  I wasn’t intending to do a second post today, but as I was organizing my photos for this coming week I thought let me get this last one post in since it features items from Tres Chic too.  The top and skirt are by Aleutia, which are just great for taking a stroll on the beach.  The other item from this event I’ve used before, and it’s a pose from Greek Goddess set by Frozen Poses.

The decor is a mixture from a few designers that I blog for.  The first set is the Beach Life one by Dreamscapes Art Gallery, which is their item for Enmeshed Monthly. The set includes towels for sitting at the beach, the umbrella, sand buckets, swim rings, ice cream cup and a few more items not shown. This is a subscription, and pre-orders  were for July 1st, but previous boxes are still available for a slightly higher price.  Visit the Enmeshed Monthly website for more information on this subscription event and for previous boxes.

The beach ready set by Zen Creations is at the main store now, and it includes lots of pillows, towel, radio, beach ball and some decor like the surf board, palm, stool and beach sign.  The round blue mandala design beach towel is by [Merak], and it’s only of many choices that you can find at this round of Shiny Shabby.  All these items have some great sit animations that are wonderful for sitting and laying out at the beach.

Tomorrow it’s another summer scene with a little fun twist.

Food, friends and sunshine… ingredients for a picnic

Happy Wednesday! If you are like me and haven’t made it over to the Bloom Event, which has been open less than a week then we’re seriously missing out on some great stuff.  I’ll get there eventually.  In the meantime I get to show you some wonderful items from creators participating.

The first picture shows the abandoned conservatory building by [Merak], which is an absolute delight with its great textures and the windows on one end.  It made it a great foundation for putting this scene together.  I am using the picnic prep gacha items by Hive: the crate bar, eat sign and the pots of silverware on the bar table. The conservatory and picnic items can be found at Bloom.

Then the flowers, gardening stuff and the Victorian iron couch and table are by Dreamscapes Art Gallery.  You can find these at the main store and make sure you check out the hunts they are participating in, because you’ll find some great decor items.

Hive also created some oak and birch trees, which is what I used to decorate around the conservatory. The trees come in a range of sizes and some are newly planted so they have sticks holding them up.  Great for those gardeners who want to do some landscaping. The crates, picnic sign and tent are by Hive and part of their picnic gacha set and the colorful chickies are by Dreamscapes Art Gallery.

Have a great day!

The Cranmore

0033ps

I mentioned in my blog post yesterday that today I would be featuring a new home. So today I bring you The Cranmore by creator Cain Maven. If you’ve been around Second Life for a while you’re probably already familiar with his homes under his brands Maven Homes and also Quantum Luxury Homes.

Both brands offer you high quality homes in various styles in a wide range of prices. Though having just recently toured one of the previous new releases, the “Roma” home, beautiful large luxury home is almost too simple to describe the beauty and magnificence in size and looks of that particular home.

0062ps

The Cranmore is way smaller in comparison, but it’s also not a small home either at a size of 32 m x 35 m.  It’s a bit of a mixed brick style build as you get a bit of a renovated barn with an industrial rustic feel with a touch of modernness. What I especially liked immediately upon entering the home was the sense of not feeling like I was boxed in.  I think that’s attributed to the openness, large picture windows and the high ceilings, which is something you don’t find a lot these days.

015ps

The rooms in the house include a bedroom, bathroom, front room, a kitchen with a dining/living room space and attic. The kitchen and bathroom decor is removable. I had a little fun decorating the kitchen with old and new items.  The kitchen as mentioned is an open plan where you have the dining room and another living room space.  The picture below shows the other side of the kitchen as you enter it through the open barn doors.

018ps

You can see the attic space in the picture above that gives you another level to put in another bedroom, office or another sitting area.  Plus you can see what I mean about the openness and high ceilings.

022ps

Above is the bathroom and the next picture is the bedroom.  Just take a look at the realistic detail of the materials used.

021ps

In the second picture you saw the home from the back and you see the big window just behind the green loungers, which are another collaboration by Shutter Field and Decor Junction and are available currently at Tres Chic.

If you click the window or the wheel on the wall, you will see the wheel begin to spin as the window opens, giving you this wonderful view out or whatever view you may have once positioned.  You can see my hands there as I am taking a breather enjoying the night hours and the flock of birds.  Now most species of birds rest during the night as I came to read, though there are some birds like for instance some sparrows that fly at night during migration periods. I think it was one of those periods.

024ps2

If you read and saw all the pictures, thank you for taking the time as I know it’s a very long post.

Below credits I’ve also listed information the creator has provided. The house is set to be released this weekend, and while I’ve done best to show you the house from almost every angle, go check it out for yourself!

Dog sitting

Jian 008

I actually did this over the past weekend with my sisters dog as she traveled out of town for the day. Her dog is pretty tame and  is very content these days just to claim her space in the room and sit quietly.

In-world it’s a different story.  I can handle more than one.  These cuties I’m showing are the corgis from JIAN that will be available tomorrow at the Arcade.  There are 15 total with 12 commons and 3 rares with a 11% rare chance and $50L per play.

There is a new thing with the Arcade this round and that is the rewarding of loyal players who at 50 plays to the same machine will receive a reward.  JIAN’s reward is the kite flyer corgi, which has 5 different whimsical animal kite textures.

There is so much more to the corgis than what you see.  Get all the details on the corgis below the credits.

That sweet feeling called love

DaD 044

I’m posting later in the day than I like as time just seemed to run away from me today and it’s the first time I’m getting to sit at the computer.  Today I am featuring the latest creation by DaD Designs, which is the Sun Forest Cottage home.  It’s a lovely cottage centered on a vintage / shabby chic theme.  It basically has two large rooms, one separated by a wall with an opening giving it three rooms altogether. The porch has a glass roof top with leaves that can be changed by touch and you get nine colors to give you the season you want.

I have included some additional pictures at the bottom and details on the house from the creator to give you the view from the front of the house and the inside. It’s currently available at Shiny Shabby.

Enjoy the rest of your Monday!
