Ocean Breeze

Ocean Breeze

Featuring Juna at Redeux

We are seriously considering renting a houseboat this summer and spending at least an extended weekend on the water, cooking on the grill and soaking up the sun.  My uncle lives on Lake Cumberland in Kentucky and it is just beautiful…and has houseboat rentals!  We are moving next month also though…and I have grand ideas for my new house..lol!  We shall see…but vacation is sorely needed!

I Scream, You Scream

I Scream, You Scream

Featuring [Fetch] and CAZIMI

Recently I discovered Hagendaz Green Tea ice cream and though it may sound gross, especially since I dislike most tea, it is actually delicious.  It’s very light, not too sweet and perfect after dinner.

Featured here are new Pearlized Nails by CAZIMI and great new flower earrings from [Fetch].  The nailpolish is available at the current round of Redeux and the Hannah earrings are at the new mainstore event, Palette.

I like the idea of Palette.  It’s a monthly event that features a color theme but the items are at each creators mainstore and they are 100L or less!  There is also a free HUD to make your shopping easier!  Palette deals end on the 22nd so don’t miss out!

It’s also the 2nd anniversary round of Redeux which means special VIP gifts and also a photo contest.  Redeux ends on the 21st!

Welcome to the jungle, it gets worse here every day
You learn to live like an animal in the jungle where we play

Vacation Daydreams

Vacation Daydreams

Featuring [Fetch]

Oh, how this photo shoot made me long for a tropical vacation.  In the past Disney World has always been my first choice for vacation but now that I am a bit *cough* older, I am finding the relaxation of a warm beach and a fruity, frozen drink more appealing.

My featured item here is the adorable Pineapple Clutch from [Fetch].  The detail work is just beautiful.  It does have a hold animation as well so you can stroll along the beach or just do some fun summer shopping and have someplace to store your keys and lipstick.

Now for the best part!!  The clutch is the VIP gift for March…completely free if you are a VIP member.  Not a member?  You can join for just 50L and that way you won’t miss any gifts, news or updates.

Now if that wasn’t enough, [Fetch] is also offering these cute sunglasses for only 50L as part of the Fifty Linden Friday deals.  They are a perfect addition to your summer look and include a hud with several color options.  Add the Pineapple Clutch and you have a super cute summer look!

Taking My Moment

Taking A Moment

Featuring PosEd Poses

The last few days around here have been crazy!  This past Friday morning at 6:30 AM,  our spare bedroom ceiling fell to the floor, the sheetrock soaked from the rain that has been going on for days.

A little background…my husbands job was moved out of state a few years back and he moved into an apartment and kept his house in Virginia.  After we met we then moved into a lovely rental home while he was still deciding what to do with his house back in Virginia.  There is a very large military, technology, and research presence where we live now, with contractors coming and going all the time.  Due to this most home rentals are handled through real estate companies who then deal with the actual home owner.  This works out well most of the time since the real estate company has their reputation on the line.

Fast forward to last week!  We had huge winds (no rain yet) that blew off several shingles.  I took pictures and contacted realtor.  They responded that the owner had contacted her insurance to make a claim.  Then the rain started…POURING rain and a couple days later…crash.  So now we have  a bigger problem, right?  It was explained to us by the realtor that because when I reported the missing shingles there was no actual leak that it was not an emergency and emergencies come first.  Understandable but what about that ounce of prevention I have heard about…or even common sense!

To make a long story short (too late, right), on Saturday, a roofer came and put up a too small tarp that still allowed leaking, a demolition guy came and cleaned up the mess AFTER helping my husband empty the entire room (I was just a week out from surgery that has me on a 6 week, 5 pound lifting limit), the rain continued all day and night Saturday resulting in more leaking and of course no work was done yesterday.  Though I was completely frustrated with the comedy of errors it had become, when Sunday arrived and I saw the sun for the first time in about a week I was able to just let it all go.  We are safe, the contents of the spare room are fine (though they are scattered throughout the house) and I don’t have to cough up any money for roof repairs.

So I put on my comfy clothes and did a little exploring in Second Life and found this nice relaxing spot at Soul2Soul Falls and took my moment!  Happy Monday everyone…let the construction begin!

Biker Chic

Biker Chic

Featuring Meva and Fashiowl Poses

If there is such a thing as a glamorous biker chick this is my version.  It’s what I call biker chic.  No tattoos, a touch of leather, a little bling..ok..that helmet is a lot of bling, and a splash of sexy.  I know there are tons of tattoo lovers out there that will say tattoos should be a must but I’m just not a big fan.  I don’t have them in my first life (unless you want to count my radiation markers and those were hardly exciting) but I have worn them a handful of times in Second Life.  I have seen some beautiful ones as well but they just aren’t me.  If you like the idea of biker chic, check out the credits for details on my featured items.

P.S. I do have a pierced nose in my first life…see, I’m not a total prude! 😋

Vintage Valentines

vintage valentines

Featuring *KATE*

I am a lover of all things vintage but especially vintage holiday decorations.  I saw these vintage Valentine textures quite a while back and knew that I wanted to use them sometime in the future.  I figured it would be in a framed display in my Second Life home since I wasn’t blogging back then but here they are and I am happy I get to use them for someone other than myself to see.

They just don’t make Valentines like they used to.  Most everything these days is licensed characters with a heart slapped on it somewhere.  I, myself, am a bit vintage so I can remember the cute Valentines with silly sayings like the bee saying “Bee Mine” or “Honey, I like you” and the little deer saying “I love you “deer-ly”.  I also remember spending the days leading up to Valentines Day decorating an old cereal box with construction paper and paper doily cut out hearts.  Once Valentine’s Day arrived we would all bring our boxes to school and when it was time to pass out Valentines we would drop them into each others beautiful cereal boxes.  Do kids even do that anymore??  If they don’t they are missing out on some great memories down the road.

*KATE* has released this adorable ring and bracelet set in time for Valentines Day.  It comes fitted for Maitreya and Slink and includes a hud to change metal textures as well as to hide/show the rings or bracelet. You can find it in the mainstore.

DayZ

dayz

Featuring [Krescendo]

My husband and I recently started playing DayZ.  For those not familiar with DayZ, here is the description from Steam:

The post-soviet country of Chernarus is struck by an unknown virus, turning the majority population into frenzied infected. Fighting over resources has bred a hostile mentality among survivors, driving what’s left of humanity to collapse. You are one of the few immune to the virus – how far will you go to survive?

I have a love/hate relationship with this game.  I love playing it but it scares the crap out of me at the same time.  We play on our own server so at least I don’t have to worry about other players trying to kill me…just the zombies.  I figure its good practice for when the real zombies show up! *wink wink*

[Krescendo] has created a nearly perfect mode of transport for the occasion.  The Apoxwagon is coming soon to the Eclipse event which starts on the 13th.  It comes in Adult and PG versions and includes a hud allowing you to choose from 7 colors.  Get yours and be ready to survive the infected!
