A Writer’s Retreat

Snapshot

Not many of you may know it, but I am a stay at home mom, and an author as my day job in real life. That is why I absolutely fell in love with this set from Aisling that is currently available at the arcade. I haven’t gotten quite lucky enough to collect the entire set, but the nice thing about The Arcade, is you have all month long to try again, and even trade with others for those few “must have” items that you are still missing. I think I have now found my new favorite spot in SL! My upstairs hallway.

The Future is Now

Blogging soon!

The digital revolution is now. And you only have until midnight tomorrow night to experience it. ;-)

FutureWave is a science fiction-themed shopping event featuring some of the the most amazing items from some very talented designers. Here, I’m wearing a complete, mesh avatar, the “Security Enforcer,” by CMFF. I love the texturing!

Blogging soon!

So, what’s free in this post? These cool typing discs by Stuck Products are free! You’ll find them at FutureWave. Let me tell you, they were not easy to photograph! Oh, and my eyes from ~*By Snow*~ are only 1L, and you can find them on the Marketplace.

Blogging soon!

This cool build that I’m standing on by 22769 ~ [bauwerk] is called The Outpost. You can find it at FutureWave, if you feel so inclined.

If the planets all align for me, I’ll be back tomorrow with more good stuff from FutureWave. But remember, you only have until midnight tomorrow night to do your futuristic shopping. At least go see the sim build; it’s very creative, and definitely worth a stroll. :-)

A Little “HY” on a Coffee House!

Blogging soon!

Those of you who know me on Facebook have probably figured out that I’m a pretty serious coffee enthusiast. In fact, there are some days when I think the only reason I get out of bed in the morning is to have coffee! Anyway, when I learned that ++HY’s++ was giving away this fabulous coffee house as a gift for their 2nd Anniversary Hunt, I just knew I had to have it. I’ve always wanted to have a little store or hangout in SL, and since I don’t build or make things, a coffee house is perfect! This sweet little shop can be YOURS too once you find the birdhouse (which is a cute gift in itself). You only have until February 9th though, so don’t delay!

Blogging soon!

I really can’t wait to get started decorating! I hated to show you an empty build, but I knew I wouldn’t get finished in time for you to get the gift. Plus, when you land at ++HY’s++, you can visit a decorated sample, if you want to see what it looks like full of stuffs. Before I knew the build would be a hunt gift, I shot these pictures of Gavin at the sample at ++HY’s++.

Blogging soon!

Another view of the interior. I really love the detail in this build. The counter even raises up and down so you can get behind it to serve your customers. :-)

Blogging soon!

The fireplace here is a past hunt gift from DIGS, and is not included. I just think a building is bare without a fireplace, so I dropped this one in. Oh! I forgot to tell you that the awnings on the front porch are texture-change; 5 different textures are included.

Blogging soon!

What am I wearing? Well, the “caffeinated raccoon” t-shirt is a free gift for all from PRISM Designs, and my ripped tights are a free gift from {Tilly} on the Marketplace. I really love these studded shoes, which are a subscriber gift from *Cashmere&Keane*; they come in both men’s and women’s sizes with a sock or no-sock option. And my comic-covered bag is the Bag It! Pack It! Clutch It! Hunt gift from Eclectic Stars; two designs are included in the box.

So, there you have it. Nessie and I are going to be busy making plans to decorate our new coffee house! :-D

Shabby Chic Sunday

Its always sad when all the sparkling lights vanish. I just might have to find some fairy lights for all year around!

I took a break to grab a cup of coffee and find some great freebies and deals around the grid that I could tell you about before I go back and finish off packing up Christmas!

Peace, Ice Skates, and Mythical Creatures

Blogging Soon

There’s still plenty of time to pick up those Peace on Earth Hunt (POE6) gifts, and with so many great stores in the hunt, you don’t want to miss a single one! My complete outfit is the POE6 hunt gift from ~*~Felicia’s Fashions~*~; included are the sweater, leggings, and boots you see here, plus a pair of mittens and a snuggly hat which I’m not wearing here. The pretty skin I’m in is a special Christmas edition of Izzie’s new release, Lila, which you can only find at The Dressing Room FUSION (TDRF). 4 different eyebrow colors are included. Oh, and my pose is from a 5-pose gift pack by {Imeka~}, so pop over and pick them up! :-)

Blogging Soon

More POE6 goodies for your landscaping needs! First, this awesome ice-skating shack is the gift from Hanaya. It dispenses animated ice skates for both men and women for your winter skating pleasure. The lovely tree on the right is the POE6 gift from *Kismet*; this is the “undecorated” version, but there is also a version with Christmas decorations in the box. The decorated stump on the left is the POE6 gift from HPMD (bear cub not included). There is also a larger version in the box with more lights and critters aboard – and it snows! :-D A couple of non-POE group gifts are included in this scene, starting with the tin house lantern, which was sent to members of the {what next} group a while back; 3 different house shapes are included. Finally, my cute, mythical Jackalope friend is the newest group gift from the Virtual Kennel Club. VKC pets are artificially intelligent and will wander around your land, or follow your commands as you wish. This little guy comes with a sweet petting animation, although he did poke me in the face a few times with his antlers. ;-) You can pick him up at one of 3 VKC parks, but only until Friday, 3 January 2014 (see link for more information). Enjoy!
