Afternoon At The Pool

So I’m just gonna say it, I’ve seen pools over the years in SL and they normally suck.  They not only look terrible or dated but they also never come with anything to actually do, aka no animations.  Well,  that was until I saw the new pool from Pixel Mode, which is absolutely amazing!   It’s probably the most realistic pool I’ve seen in SL to date, and not only that,  it comes loaded with singles and couples animations along with diving and swimming animations!  Around the pool Tya left some deck space for you to place your chairs,tables and decor items as well as places you can throw in your own landscaping.  AND, just when you thought it could not get better she also built a surround for it so it can be used up in a skydome or you can remove it and terraform your land around it.  You can also mod it and add your own land texture to use the one that you use! It’s currently available at the Love to Decorate event and I can’t stress how much you need to check this out!  All the other goodies I used to showcase the pool, including what I’m wearing, can be found below the pic; and if you need a larger view just click the picture!

Burgers & Baked Goods

The Multicultural Menu Event opened yesterday, June 1st, and will run until June 21st.  If you are someone who loves mesh food in Second Life than this is an event for you! It is filled with so much amazing food from all over the world and today’s post is showing you what four different chefs are serving up for you.

flickr look 719-2The first two pics are to show you the new, and quite fantastic, Bakery from 22769 which is quite a large set; It includes the building, decor and loads of different breads and baked goods that you would need for any good bakery. You can buy the items in smaller sets or all together.  I’ve also included pies from Hate This and Lamingtons from Second Spaces.  My third pic is to show you off the awesome new burger cart from Fetch.  That set includes the cart with or without food and all the items separate so you can choose what you want.

I have a very colorful home and garden post for you today thanks to What Next and Sway’s.  Sway’s Filis Set is available at the newest round of The Liaison Collaborative while What Next’s Carnival items are part of the Tag Gacha event that ends on April 30th.  Yes I know I’m late in showing you, but you still have three days to head on over and take part!  It is a hud based event so you will have to start at the Starting Point and go from there, any additional info you may need can be found at the official Tag Gacha Website.  Sway’s Filis Set includes the texture change chairs that come in two styles and include 12 single animations and 7 couple.  It also includes the paper ball lamps in three styles, groups of three (shown) and singles in small or large.  The lamps can also be turned on and off.

The Colors of Spring

Hey there!  So as I think I’ve mentioned in a past post I’ve been working on trying to improve my picture taking skills.  One of the things that was pointed out to me is that my windlights all seem to look the same, they aren’t, but look that way.  So, I went out of my comfort zone a bit and played around with a more colorful lighting and really love how this turned out.  Another Home & Garden post packed full of wonderful goodies from some of my favorite stores; Fetch, Alouette, [Keke], What Next just to name a few.  For a larger view just click on the picture!

Morning Start

I’m so excited to show you this new kitchen from Dysfunctional Designs!  It’s so small and cute and comes with texture change on everything, including the stove. Two things it does not have are animations or a fridge, but you can easily add the fridge and if you are like me and don’t really use kitchen animations it’s fantastic.  When you consider that it’s very low prim and includes all the decor except for what I have listed here it’s even better! I got most of my additional decor from Tres Blah that I picked up at The Arcade, along with finds I made from MMG’s, Second Spaces, and some kitchen art work from new-to-me store Victoria’s Little Secrets.

Counting Down The Days

Thanksgiving is days away with Christmas just around the corner and while I have been preoccupied in world working on my winter cabin I wanted to take a break and show you a few goodies I have picked up around the grid.  My outfit kept me warm and cozy as I worked around the cabin and these items from Alouette and Second Spaces are just reminders why they are two of my favorite home & garden stores.
