  • Ancient History

    Featuring ViSion and Lyrium

    Exploring has always been one of my favorite things to do in Second Life.  I still remember the amazement I felt when I first came in world.  I mean you could do ANYTHING!  Some stuff I wasn’t interested in at all.  No being a vampire or a stripper for me thanks! That is actually is sort of funny considering I learned about Second Life from some friends that I had been playing Vampire Wars on Facebook with.

    For me it took me right back to my love of playing Barbies when I was young…and I confess…I played Barbies until I was about 13…no shame either! *Laughs*  I explored, shopped, surfed, went skydiving and swimming and thought I was scooping up some great fashion at Freebie Galaxy!  Is that place still around??  Anyway, exploring is something I have always loved doing and I appreciate the time and effort others have taken to build something they wanted to share, regardless of skill level.  We all start at the beginning when learning something new, right?

    I started a gallery on my Flickr a while back that includes photos with landmarks of places I want to explore and my location for this photo was one from that list.  This is Alexandria, an Egyptian themed region that I really enjoyed exploring and thanks to a little extra eyeliner I was channeling Anck-Su-Namun, from The Mummy, in no time.  The landmark is in the credits if you want to go check it out for yourself.

    My featured items today are this super sexy Night Shine Dress from ViSion and a new release, Sora, from Lyrium.  The dress is available in great color and includes a matching panty.  You can customize the metals, pearls, glow and transparency.  You can find it at the main store.  The pose from the Sora Series is available as static poses, including curvy options as well as breathing animations.  You can find both at Access until August 8th and the main store after the event ends.

    Happy exploring!

    Today I am featuring all sorts of goodies from Aleutia…everything from fashion to decor!  Let’s start  with the Bahamas Cabana, a new release coming to Kinky Event which opens today at 5 PM SLT.  It is available in PG, Adult and Poly versions.  Head to Kinky later to check out the demo!

  • Southern Living

    Featuring KOPFKINO and {Old Barn Door}

    The living may be “southern” but the food appears to be Italian!  Honestly my brain has been a bit scrambled for the past few days and I stole the title from the Southern Living magazine on my desk.  I will be going out of state in early August to take care of some business and medical stuff for my mother who is 85.  I will be very happy to see her, my daughter, my best friend of 45+ years and other family.  While I certainly wouldn’t call it a vacation, we will certainly make the best of it.

    Today I am featuring a beautiful new gacha from KOPFKINO.  This is the Mediterranean Kitchen gacha which is currently at the birthday round of The Epiphany.  The gacha contains 15 commons and one rare and there is a special refrigerator design as the event Exclusive item.  If you don’t want to try your luck you can also buy the set as a fatpack.  The Epiphany will close on August 12th.

    I am also featuring a new shelf from Old Barn Door.  The Iconic Farmhouse Shelf includes two versions and is copy and mod in case you would like to use it without the wire baskets.  The second included version features cute little seashell plaques hanging from the hooks.  You can find it at the main store or on the marketplace.

    Have a great day!

  • You Guys Wanna Race?

    Featuring Sari-Sari

    I hope I haven’t aged myself and that my readers actually remember the fable of The Tortoise and the Hare.  In case you don’t, the moral of the story is basically that slow and steady wins the race.  Life is not a race and I mean, who wants to reach it’s finish line quickly??  Certainly not me!  

    I am featuring these adorable Sansevieria In Turtle Pots from Sari-Sari.  They come in two color choices, green or yellow and will be available at The Warehouse Sale which opens today at 10 PM SLT.  The fatpack will be available at 20% off for the duration of the sale so be sure to take advantage of that.

    Happy Friday everyone!

    Ok…I am in love with this hat!  If you love vintage fashion you MUST have it!  It is from Rise Design and is available at The Liaison Collaborative.  It includes a texture HUD filled with gorgeous colors  for creating your perfect color combination.  I went with red because…well…RED! 

    It’s release was also perfect timing for me to include my photo in this weeks BVN Blogger Challenge.  The theme for this week is You Can Leave Your Hat On and you can find out all of the details about the challenge here.  The challenge is a great way to break away from sponsor blogging and just do something for the fun of it.  I just happened to get lucky with the theme this week while blogging this hat…did I mention I LOVE this hat?  Yes?  Ok…well I said it again.  Check the credits for info on all the pretties used for this photo and have a great day!

    I had recently purchased this new houseboat from Trompe Loeil to use as a guest house of sorts on our  homestead and with perfect timing, Soul2Soul released some new things that were exactly what I was looking for.  I am featuring a combination of three new releases here, the Penzance Patio Modular Set, the Penzance Patio Lounge Set and the Penzance Plants Set.

  • Cool For The Summer

    Featuring Have Unequal, DaD Virtual Living, Junk Food, Atelier Visconti and Diversion

    Tell me what you want, what you like, it’s okay
    I’m a little curious too
    Tell me if it’s wrong, if it’s right, I don’t care
    I can keep a secret, can you?

    Got my mind on your body and your body on my mind
    Got a taste for the cherry, I just need to take a bite
    Don’t tell your mother
    Kiss one another
    Die for each other
    We’re cool for the summer

    Take me down into your paradise
    Don’t be scared, ’cause I’m your body type
    Just something that we wanna try
    ‘Cause you and I, we’re cool for the summer

    Demi Lovato – Cool for the Summer

    You can get cool for the summer at the new round of The Liaison Collaborative.  Other than my featured dock from DaD Virtual Living you can find all of the other featured items at TLC.  Check the credits for all the info and landmarks and have a great day!  Stay cool!
