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!

Step Right Up Ladies & Gentlemen

Step Right Up Ladies & Gentlemen!

Featuring [InsurreKtion] and *SK*

Sometimes ideas just come together so well.  I have been wanting to blog this vintage carnival gacha set by [InsurreKtion] for a while now and was just getting caught up on current events.  Just as I was getting some open time, *SK* released this Valentina outfit for Tres Chic and it had this vintage, androgynous feel to it and I knew it would be perfect for this photo.  She totally looks the part of a carnival barker!

It also reminds me of one of my favorite seasons of American Horror Story.  I loved everthing about AHS – Freak Show but Twisty the Clown is NOT allowed at my carnival.  I will have to turn the lion loose on him if he shows up.  I highly recommend it and it is currently on Netflix and Amazon Prime.  Step right up and enjoy the show!

Summer In The Park

Summer in the Park.png

Featuring Sway’s

It’s raining here in the southern US with more to come over the next FOUR days!  I would say its a perfect time to be daydreaming about summer in the park!  Featured here is the Mayra Half Circular Bench by Sway’s.  I have shown it in all 4 color choices of the wood and also all 4 colors of the pillows and blanket.  Each bench will sit up to 3 avatars and it has single and couple animations.  You are welcome to stop and rest as you stroll through the park and I’m sure the squirrel would be happy if you could bring along some nuts!

The Mayra bench is available now at Whimsical. Whimsical is open until March 11th.  Stop by and get ready for spring with items that will last through summer and beyond!

Mojito Magic

Mojito Magic

Featuring Sway’s and [InsurreKtion]

Summer is coming….When the sun begins to fade you will take my hand and lead me to the patio.  You will light a fire, not for warmth but for mood, as the summer air has left the evening warm.  You turn on some music to set the tone and pour us each a chilled mojito , made with the perfect amount of lime and mint leaves.  We watch in silence as the sun sinks to meet the horizon, the music playing softly in the background while the sounds of the evening fill the air.  Summer is coming….

Ingredients

10 fresh mint leaves

1/2 lime, cut in 4 wedges

2 tablespoons white sugar, or to taste

1 cup ice cubes

1 1/2 oz. of white rum

1/2 cup club soda

Place mint leaves and 1 lime wedge into a sturdy glass. Use a muddler to crush the mint and lime to release the mint oils and lime juice. Add 2 more lime wedges and the sugar, and muddle again to release the lime juice. Do not strain the mixture. Fill the glass almost to the top with ice. Pour the rum over the ice, and fill the glass with carbonated water. Stir, taste, and add more sugar if desired. Garnish with the remaining lime wedge.

Rural Delivery

Rural Delivery

Featuring Sway’s

Let me just say how much fun I have had blogging these past 8 months!  So far I haven’t hit any roadblocks or lack of ideas and that is in part due to my sponsors.  I love when I get an idea instantly upon seeing items as I am unpacking them and the latest release from Sway’s did exactly that.

Featured here are items from the Mail For You gacha set that is available now at The Gacha Garden.  As soon as I saw the key photo I got my idea….it was that quick.

Up until I was about 10 we lived in the city, on a cute little city block where our mail was delivered to a cute little mailbox that hung right next to the front door.  Then we moved to the “boonies” which wasn’t really the boondocks but after living in the city it sure seemed like it.  It was certainly rural though.  People lived on acres, not lots and there were farms and horses and orchards…a complete change of scenery for sure. Where I had usually walked to school, I now had to take a bus and where we had been able to open the door and get the mail without even stepping off the porch, we now had to not only go outside but also cross the street to get to the mailbox.  It was totally normal to see clusters of mailboxes side by side.

That is still the place I think of as home, the place my mother still lives 40+ years later and I still smile now whenever I drive past little clusters of mailboxes.  Have a great weekend everyone!

Featuring Aleutia, Fashiowl Poses and Sway’s

So much cuteness…where do I start!  Let’s start with my three friends here..Snip, Snap and Jaws…lol.  They are included in the Corgi pose set by Fashiowl Poses and are available at the Harajuku event.  The set contains 7 poses and the corgi pups. Super cute!

My comfy t-shirt is by Aleutia and is at Fameshed X right now.  It’s part of the Yumi set that includes matching undies.  It comes in a variety of colors that you can purchase individually, in color packs or the fatpack. Each shirt includes a hud with 14 graphic options in both black and white print options. Lots of sexy, sassy sayings!

Last, but certainly not least, are the super cute pillows by Sway’s.  Winter is not over so you still need to stay cozy, PLUS the pillow is decorated with hearts which makes it perfect to keep out through Valentine’s Day….and now for the best part…it’s FREE.  That’s right!  It is Sway’s gift at GachaLand which only has a few more days before the round will change!  Hurry over to take a look at Sway’s Clyde Winter Home gacha set and pick up your free gift.
