Jian 029

Looking for a meal to serve your family and friends, then feast your eyes on these Mediterranean dishes by Jian for the Multicultural Menu event that runs until June 21st.  It is a nine piece set that includes classic Mediterranean flavors like seafood paella, cream catalana and sangria to name a few.  Every piece is only 1 land impact and each item allows you the option to select the color for the dining ware so you can decor to your style.  If that weren’t enough, you can grab this set for only $165 during the event.

Check out the details below and if you want to see more food from the event, visit the web site listed below the credits.

[ARIA] is participating in the newest round of TAG! Gacha, which is themed “The Side Show” with the Morgana’s Wonders Collection.  I am only showing a few pieces here, but there are 14 items to collect in total, with 11 being common, 2 rare and 1 mystery rare.  You can get a look at all the prizes at the website and all the gacha machines are at the individual stores .

The event is HUD based so that on a click it will teleport you to every store so that you can play the gacha machine.  Make sure you tag the board next to the gacha machine so your HUD knows you have been there and by tagging every board of participating stores it will unlock the bonus room and ultimately the prize room, where you can collect any of the mystery rares you might have received.

Get all the information on the event and  using the HUD at the TAG! website.   The event will run until April 30th.

The newest round of the Men’s Department just opened up a couple of days ago and one of the items you can find is this wooden shower and potted plant by [ARIA].  While it is advertised as an outdoor shower, it can obviously be used inside as well.  I used one of the teahouses made by [CIRCA] to create this spa room using items from a few different creators.

Have a great Tuesday!

Two-for-one shoes.

21 Shoe Hopscotch

Coming soon is the new round of the 21Shoe, a monthly event that happens on the 21st of each month that gives us shoe lovers a two-for-one bargain on new and exclusive shoes. I’m showing off the shoes that HopScotch will have for this November round.   The red/gold shoes I’m wearing are called Capture and are designed to fit the SLink medium feet.  The second pair of shoes near the table are purple with an orange lining named Sidney, and also made to fit the medium mesh feet by SLink.

You can check out the 21Shoe website as the 21st approaches to take a look at the other shoes that will be available during this round.  All the shoes can be found at the main stores and you can also grab the slurls from the website.  The other thing about this event is that it only lasts 24 hours, from 12:01 am SLT on the 21st of each month.

21 Shoe YS&YS 2

You could say I’m doing a two-for-one post today.  So this is what happens when you’re still half asleep.  I’m wearing the two shoes from *YS&YS* that will be sold also on the 21st.  The Tivoli a smooth crocodile black and the Latina open toe in beige.  The shoes are made to be used with SLink high feet and you will get two versions of the shoes — one with “sock” in the name that are made to be used when you want to apply socks to your feet.

Remember the shoes are only available for 24-hours from 12:01 am SLT on the 21st of November.

Dining in…

“The home should be the treasure chest of living” ~ Le Corbusier

Aria 7

I have been out of town the last several days at a business meeting and it’s been a long time since I’ve used a laptop to get into Second Life.  It works fine in all honesty.  Though I just don’t find it easy to maneuver around and much less trying to put together a scene for blogging.   It’s great if I’m just sitting or standing and chatting.

Aria 2

I’m glad to be home and able to use my desktop to put together this lovely furniture setting by Aria that was released at The Garden this month.   The complete set features the beautiful cut dining room table and sideboard that comes in three different wood textures.  You get four variations of the dining chair, that comes in PG or adult, and many color textures to choose from for the chair and the cushion.

Aria 4

The whole set is materials enabled and has copy and modify permissions and the remaining set includes the vases, which are enlarged, pendant lights and flowers on the pictured on the table, which also gives you color choices.   Not part of the set, but still from Aria are the new curtains named Verna, which are available at the main store.  You can choose colors by clicking on them, which pops up the menu to change the fabric texture or the metal.   I did modify them to fit the windows.

Aria 6

I am still working on improving my use of light in Second Life.  If anyone has any great tutorials, point me in the right direction.

I found this shattered man statue at an animated texture shop.  It seemed like it would make a great decor item for the house, even if the space I have him in now is a bit tight for his outstretched arms. I’m breaking in the new mini furniture set that Aria released for this month’s FaMESHed event that consists of the sofa, table and vase with poppies.  I love the details on the sofa and kept going between the three colors and finally settled on this grey.  I must say that I really like when you can buy an item that gives you choices in the wood and fabric textures.  Personally, I am more inclined to spend lindens on an item like this for a set price than for an item with one color choice for the same price.  I also really like that some designers are allowing you to buy items individually.   I don’t always want the whole set, but would love to have a particular accessory that comes with the set.


This cool jacket that I’m wearing is a group gift from .Shi.  It comes with a HUD to change the jacket color and comes with a fabric necklace.  The necklace took me a little time to fit almost right, but the hair covered the bit of imperfection, which is the necklace going through the jacket.  I believe this will vary by avatar and mine is a little bigger than normal.
