    Hot Like Wasabi

    Hot Like Wasabi 4K

    Featuring Lyrium Poses and Vinyl Apparel

    See!  Summer isn’t over just yet and it’s going to be a sunny 91F here today with a 50% chance of rain….but you remember what I said about all the rain skirting around my neighborhood, right?  I guess I will wait and see which 50% I fall in to.

    I think I am going to take a short break in blogging in about a week.  My bonus daughter is coming back down for a week and will then take my bonus son, who has been here since gosh..May I think, back to Virginia with her.  My husband and I will then become empty nesters again until Spring Break.  If I manage to get a few extra posts done ahead of time I won’t need to do that but I don’t want to burn myself out so we shall see how the next week goes.

    Today I am featuring the cute new Wasabi Crop Top from Vinyl Apparel.  It comes in lots of great colors and has a choice of seven different graphics or no graphic at all.  You can find the Wasabi Crop at Equal10.

    I am also featuring a new pose from Lyrium Poses.  This one is from the Yuna Series.  Like some other new releases from Lyrium Poses, this set comes in your choice of static poses or breathing poses.  There is also a fatpack if you want to have both.  I am loving the breathing poses and have added a new AO set to my Firestorm built in AO so that I can easily switch to a natural stance if I am trying to capture a candid photo and don’t want to be in that awkward “noob” stance.  You can also find the Yuna Series at Equal10

    Picnic Serenade

    Picnic Serenade 4K

    Featuring Serenity Style and The Little Branch

     

    Again I find myself moving slowly away from bikini’s and sand and moving towards orange and pink skies and color changing foliage.  I am ready for a nice picnic too.  It is still in the upper 80’s/low 90’s here in the southern US and that is too hot for picnicing! We are in desperate need of rain also.  When it does come it usually misses my neighborhood.  I see thunder and lightening in the distance and wish it would come my way just in time for a nice nap…but no such luck.  So until the rain and the picnic weather arrive I will be enjoying the weather in Second Life…where you can always find exactly what you’re looking for.

    Down On The Bayou

    Down On The Bayou 4K

    Featuring {Old Barn Door}

    Louisiana Bayou Song

    Sometimes on the bauou in Louisiana
    a storm rolls in quickly –
    Cypress trees
    sway to the sound.

    Sometimes on a quiet day
    when the sun is high and hot
    a heron happens by –
    The bayou slows to the beat of his wading.

    The song of the bayou
    can be as fast and frenetic as a Zydeco two-step
    or as soft and slow as a Cajun waltz –
    The bayou sings a song to me.

    – Margaret Simon

    Today I am featuring another adorable cottage from {Old Barn Door}.  This one is the Darling Cottage and it is true to its name…Darling!  You actually get two versions, one made to sit on the ground and one with a little dock if you want to use it near near a lake or beach…or even the bayou as I have done here.  It comes with a bunch of decor pieces (not all shown here) and it is all copy and mod.  You can see the Darling Cottage at Old Barn Door’s remote location (landmark below) and read about all of the features in the marketplace listing here.

    Do These Empanadas Make Me Look Fat?

    Do These Empanadas Make Me Look Fat 4K

    Featuring [Aleutia], Luc. Boutique, Aphrodite Shop And Atelier Burgundy

    It’s Monday…but as I was doing this write up it was Sunday…and Sunday was a bit of a sucky day!  My hubby built me a new PC back in June and the worst part about that is the job of migrating everything over.  It never fails that something just doesn’t work right.  When we did it in Junethe issue was that all of my ParticleShop brushes disappeared.  Anyway…we decided to give that PC to my bonus daughter so my hubby built me yet another new one…new and improved and up and running as I write this post.  Of course it was ParticleShop that gave me the problem..again…but I did manage to get it fixed fairly quickly this time.  I think I just need to wrap this up and take a little nap so let me get to the credits so you can go get your shop on….and Happy Monday!

    The Faint Scent of Autumn Came in on the Breeze

    The Faint Scent of Autumn Came in on the Breeze

    Featuring ionic

    I am really starting to get excited about Autumn and I can feel the urge to show that in my photos.  I feel like it’s still a bit early so I am trying to slowly ease into it with this photo.  In the US pre-Covid, most of the schools in the south would be back in session so I imagine that a few of the seasonal beach houses have started making preparations to wrap things up.  That is what I imagined for this photo.  The colors of summer are starting to give way to the orange and yellows of Fall and just a couple of chairs remain on the beach, a couple on the porch and the wildlife is feeling braver to explore as a new quiet settles in.

    I’m ready to go!  Who’s with me?

    I’m His Girl

     

    I'm His Girl ! 4KFeaturing Lyrium Poses and ZK Store

    Got to be there (got to be there)
    Be there in the mornin’

    Got to be there (got to be there)
    Be there bringin’ good times
    And show him that I’m his girl
    Oh, what a feeling there’ll be
    The moment I know he loves me
    ‘Cause when I look in his eyes (look in his eyes)
    I realize
    I need him sharin’ the world beside me
    That’s why I’ve got to be there (got to be there)

    Chaka Khan – Got To Be There

    Happy Saturday!  Going to keep this short and sweet.  I am featuring (and in love with) this new romper from ZK Store.  This is the Naelie Romper which is available at the new Itty Bitty Titty Committee event.  I am wearing it with the new Maitreya Petite add on and having fun with the new look!  The romper comes in a great color selection with the option of changing the color on the straps and ribbon and there is a fatpack loaded with 22 colors!  *Please Note*  I made a small modesty adjustment during editing so please try a demo to see the actual sheerness of the fabric.

    Featuring Adam n Eve and Deep Static

    I have more goodies from The Liaison Collaborative today.  Adam n Eve and Deep Static got together for a collab and have made items that can be worn together or on their own.

    From Adam n Eve we have the Solitaire dress.  It is a dazzling mini with a draped neck and it fits like a glove.  It has a low scoop in the back and fastens at the neck with a cute little dangle that represents each suit in a deck of cards.  I love that little attention to detail and what a great way to tie into the Vegas theme of the event.  There are 10 color options available or a fatpack which includes 2 bonus colors.  You can also change the metal color of the dangle via hud and panties are included.

    The matching glasses, also named Solitaire, are from Deep Static and they include a hud giving you a bunch of style options from solid frames to two tone shades as I am showing here as well as options for metal texture, lens texture and lens transparency.  They are also easily resizable via hud.  The color options includes shades to match every color of the Solitaire dress plus a few more.

    Viva Las Vegas….Brought to you by The Liaison Collaborative!  Go get lucky!

    The Sin in Sin City

    The Sin in Sin City 4K

    Featuring Serenity Style, Pitaya and CELESTE

    The first time I ever went to Vegas I was in the 10th grade.  This was back in 1981 and I was 15 years old.  My best friends parents well quite well off and invited me to come along on spring break that year.  It was a whirlwind trip that started by flying to Arizona where they had a second home.  We stayed there a few days and then drove to California where I got my first experience with Disney by going to Disneyland….and if you read my blog you know what happened there…I fell in Disney love!  Anyway…we stayed a couple of days there and then headed to Vegas.

    Vegas at 15 as the guest of a high roller was beyond words!  We had our own room that adjoined her parents and we explored up and down the strip, spent afternoons at the pool ordering food and non- alcoholic fruity drinks and just signed on the dotted line for it all.  We did all of this while her dad played poker.  I didn’t really know what a “high-roller” was back then..I just knew we did everything and didn’t pay for anything!  The neon letters in the photo that spell out “Sands” are a shout out to the hotel we stayed at.  It is now long gone, having been imploded and demolished in 1996 to make way for The Venetian, which is still there today.  I was a very lucky teenager to be able to experience all of that.  Thank you Mr. and Mrs. L for your years of kindness and the memories you gave me!

    My featured items are all at The Liaison Collaborative which has a Viva Las Vegas theme this round…just in case you couldn’t tell! 😉  Detail and landmarks are in the credits.

    Pull Up A Chair 4K1

    Featuring Soul2Soul, DaD Virtual Living, Luc. Boutique and Serenity Style

    Even though I am starting to feel the itch of Autumn, I am still loving the summer photos, both fashion and decor.  It’s still in the upper 80’s and 90’s here in Alabama so it definitely still feels like summer!  I finally turned our sprinkler system on but am lucky I made it to August before having to do so.  I have also been overwhelmed by baby birds learning to fly…or rather, overwhelmed by keeping my dogs from trying to get the baby birds that are learning to fly.  So far there have been no casualties…birds or dogs! *Laughs*  I have a lot of goodies to tell you about so let me get on with it.

    Soul2Soul has a lovely new boho set out at The Liaison Collaborative.  The BohoChic Sofa Set can be purchased as a complete set for a discount or in individual packs.  The sofa and rug have texture change options and the sofa has bento animations for singles, couples and friends.  The textures are just gorgeous!

    From DaD Virtual Living comes the Driftwood Sailboat gacha.  There are 10 commons and 2 rares and some are designed to hang on a ring and others are table top decor.  The rares are adorned with lights, seashells and starfish.  The sails on the commons come in muted shades of green, blue and red.  The Driftwood Sailboat gacha is at Anthem, open now through August 28th.

    Next up is the Madame Vase from Luc. Boutique.  There is a charming backstory behind the series of vases that were designed to celebrate women.  You can read that snippet on the Flickr photo here.  I love when creators share stories and snippets like this.  The Madame Vase comes in four different designs and is texture change as well.  You get them all with one purchase.  They are available at Kustom9 which ends on the 10th so hurry over and take a look!  Congrats to Lucas Lameth on his first entry into Kustom9 as well.  Well done!

    Rounding out my featured items are the Noah Shelves from Serenity Style.  The shelves come in a dark version as shown here as well as a light version. The lovely and detailed decor is included and comes as shown.  You can find the Noah Shelves in the main store.

    -Memoirs of a Geisha

    Every time I do an Asian inspired photo I end up sidetracked watching Memoirs of a Geisha.  I love that movie and am a bit fascinated by the whole Geisha history.  After I first saw the movie years ago I rushed out and read several books on the history and the current status of that mysterious lifestyle.  There are some great documentaries on YouTube as well.  If you haven’t seen the movie I highly recommend it!

    Today I am blogging a new pose from PosEd Poses.  This one is called Shopping Fan and it is a main store release and is also available in the marketplace.  The pose includes the fan and purse.  Check out the PosEd Poses main store for lots of other great single, couple and family poses as well.  Have a great day!
