Nautical Summer

Summer has hit the Great Lakes in RL( I live in the mitten) so this post is rather appropriate for all those who love the beach and anything with a nautical theme.  The fantastic Asbury Beach Hut from Jian is texture change and allows you to change the siding, doors, roof and trim.  I did red because hello fave color and it also stuck with the theme I was going with.  The theme that is mostly thanks to Sway’s and her awesome Rowboat Bench (that is also texture change) and all her other nautical decor that you can find at the latest Arcade.  Adding more to the theme is the wearable rowboat from What Next that is also available at the Arcade and comes in several different styles.  You also heard correctly, they are wearable and have a great rowing animation to help you get around the waters of SL.

My Memory Is Your Melody

Good Morning my fabulous readers! Today I went out of my norm and did a soft light photo to show you the beautiful items from Half-Deer, What Next and Lisp.  All the white that you see are made from the clouds from Half-Deer, they do come small but can be modded to any size.  Keep in mind though, that the larger they get the more land impact they are.  I’m also showing you two of the eight amazing Starglitter Trees along with some of the Origami Butterflies which come in several different styles.  The Amberley set from What Next includes the pretty tree bench, standing and hanging lights, guitar and straw hat; While the bench comes loaded with great animations, the pillow is texture change and the other items give you a choice of pink, creme or green colors.  Lisp’s piano comes loaded with twenty-three different tunes and the bench comes filled with both single and couples playing animations.

I’m heading out of town this weekend and won’t be returning until Monday so this will be my last post until I return.  Going to be surprising my mom for her birthday and also celebrating my niece’s third birthday with a Hello Kitty party!  If you need a larger view just click on the picture and I hope everyone has a great weekend and see you soon!

As The Day Winds Down

I’m so excited for today’s post, there is so much awesome stuff I’ve been wanting to share with you! First are the Ash Trees and Taradha lights from Jian which is the new sister store to Dysfunctional Designs and created by Kalia Firelyte who used to be part of the DDD team.  The trees are amazing and come in four styles, with a hud to change between all four seasons and also are copy/mod. The beautiful lights can be found at We Heart Roleplay and are also color change as well as copy/mod. I also have the new picnic blanket from Dysfunctional Designs that can be found at Home Show 2015 and includes single as well as couples animations. The shoes and men’s bike are both from Bazar and are part of the Stockholm set at 6th Republic.

On me is new Wasabi Pills hair and new Blueberry shorts and shirt.  I’m also using a new couples pose from !Bang called Insieme.

Gardening Days

Today I have some new and old for you.  New goodies are from Sway’s Peony Set that you can find currently at Home Show 2015 and also new pose chair from Mien Poses.  The Peony set includes the shed, everything in the shed, everything on the table (minus radio) and in front of the shed( minus seed box). It comes either linked, partially linked or all as individual items; You can also change the color of the boots, flowers and watering can. The pose chair from Mien includes five poses and can also be found in blue.

If my outfit and hair looks familiar that would be because I’m doing the Raid Your Closet Challenge my friend Lucie Bluebird has brought back; a challenge that as you know I always love.  The objective is to blog a throwback look once or more a week using only items in your inventory that you owned before May 1st, 2015. I picked a few of my favorites including my deck shoes from G Field which I was able to wear with my Maitreya feet by slightly resizing them which I could do with the included hud.

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!
