Summer Camp awaits

Morning everyone!  Today I am super excited as I’m doing my first post as one of the official bloggers for the Arcade.  This is just one of a few previews that I will be doing to show you what’s going to be available at the Arcade once it opens on June 1st.  Yes, its just a couple of days away and I hope you’re all revved up and ready to go, because there are some fabulous goodies coming our way.

The majority of items here are from Hive, who has the “Summer Camp” gacha that has 3 rares and 14 commons plus the reward prize for playing the machine 25 times.  It’s an amazing set as you can see, but take a look at the key here to see all the pieces to the set.  This machine is L$50 per play.

Then Mutresse is back giving us the “Mr FixIt” gacha, which is absolutely hilarious as I’m sure we all have men in our lives who know how to fix it all or not.  As in my case I have the Mr FixIt asleep.  Slacker.  The gacha set includes 3 rares and 11 commons at L$50 per play.  You can find the gacha key here to find your Mr FixIt.

The bike is part of the “Beach Cruiser” gacha set by Brocante. This set has 12 commons and 3 rares at L$50 per play.  Bikes are attachable, to view the complete set view the key here.

The last items being featured are these cute doggies, which are one of two sets by JIAN.  The “Playful Pibbles” gacha is a 19 piece set made up of 3 rares and 16 commons at L$50 per play plus the additional reward price for the 25 pull play. See the key here to get all the details on this gacha.

Plus visit the official Arcade website for all the news and to see the guide under the shop tab so you can begin to plan your visit.

Have a great one!

**Landmark will be provided once the Arcade opens**

Lazy Sunday

It’s definitely beach weather here with the sun shining and just the right amount of breeze to make it a lovely day except there’s not one close by and I’m not in the mood for a long drive.  I used to love to drive and for most of my career life I traveled at minimum 45 miles each way to work and several days of the week that same amount of time driving between two cities for meetings. It was time where I did a lot of my thinking and planning or on many occasions where I just breathed.

Not so much driving these days and I’ll take the passenger side of the vehicle any day for long drives. Even though there is no beach nearby it’s lovely weather to just relax today, but we’ll see what the rest of the day brings.

As for the scene I’m showing I am wearing a top and skirt from Scandalize that is in this round of Cosmopolitan and the anklet is by Naminoke, which is part of their gacha set at Lootbox.  The square nails are by Empire and these come in short, medium and long sizes and also in different styles, so go check them out at the main store.  The last item being featured is the vintage fan by NYU, which can also be found at Lootbox in other colors. I did a close up below to show the smaller items a bit closer and as always the remaining items shown are detailed below in credits.

Enjoy the rest of your day!

Hammock 07

Even though I took this picture over the weekend it really fits the mood I’m in this evening.  If it weren’t raining and the weather wasn’t so hot and humid most afternoons this would be the perfect set up for a relaxing evening.  You can find this hammock and the flower pot set at the Perfect 10 event.   The hammock comes with a bunch of texture choices for both the canvas and the wood and plenty of animations to suit your need.

Shoes 096

21Shoe is right around the corner in a few days with some more fabulous shoes this month. For those of you who may not be familiar with this event, it is a monthly event where  you can get exclusive shoes never to be sold again. What makes it even more exciting is that you get two for the price of one.  I’m showing the “Los Angeles” shoes from Essenz that are made to fit the Slink and Maitreya high feet.

The shoes are yellow and peach and will also come with a HUD to change the sole and metal colors.  Make sure to check out the website to see the other great shoes that will be available only on the one day of the event, which is always on the 21st of the month.   Plus if you join the group you can get all the news and also group gifts.   All the shoes can be purchased at the store location for those participating in this round.

Shoes 097

I am also featuring these new mesh sunflower field plants from Little Branch that you can find at this month’s Liaisaon Collaborative.  They are super realistic and great for photos and doing up your landscape.   I’m am wearing this lotus headband also from Little Branch, that if you click brings up the menu to change colors.  You can find it tomorrow at the newest round of Shiny Shabby.

I am also wearing this nicely made blouse and skirt from NYU that is part of the Wayward Hunt that just started.  The swing from Pixel Mode has several poses and is also a gift for the Wayward Hunt. Lots of great stuff from some of the very well known creators in SecondLife.

Happy shopping and hunting!

Splash of Sunshine

Splash of Fall
The Jewelry Fair opens today and I am showing you another couple of great items that will be available.  This metallic mixed gold necklace and these studded shades in silver are fair exclusives from **Cila**.   Normally I create my own scenes for blog pictures, except I didn’t have a scene in mind for what I ended up wearing.  I’m also really out of touch with locations in Second Life.

Recently, we moved our residence to a new region and the new land sat vacant for more than a few days until Draco ordered challenged me to decorate the land and house in two days.  I’m proud to say it only took me a few hours in one day to do the order.  Coughs.   I can’t complain considering that he did the landscaping and also decorated the majority of our last residence and the land was much bigger.  He left me the kitchen.  You think that’s a sign there?

Since it’s nearing the fall season I thought that decorating with that in mind would be sort of fitting. The color scheme was the perfect color combination for what I was wearing, so you get a glimpse of our new home.

Strolling through Autumn

Sometimes” said Pooh, “The smallest things take up the most room in your heart.”

Snapshot_0021

There are many sims beginning to change into winter scenes as evident by many of the pictures I have seen across the blogesphere or on Flickr.   I guess in many parts of the world it’s starting to turn cold and white, so it’s only natural to begin to see it in-world as well.  In my real life I am happy just to enjoy the windy weather we are having this weekend, even though the air is warm.

As for me in Second Life.  I thought that I would enjoy one more day of these pretty Autumn colors, so I took a stroll through Binemist.   While I didn’t take pictures of the location, it really is a lovely place that I would highly recommend visiting.  It has many spots for photos and the owner allows the rezzing of items for about thirty minutes.
