Cedar Creek

A few weeks ago, it was suggested that community life might be worth trying out. Now if someone would have told me that a couple of years ago, I wouldn’t have given it a second thought. But seeing as how I am trying a new approach to my SL, I decided to give it a shot.

Cedar Creek Township is an RP community with 14 sims of beautiful commercial and residential property and an amazing group of people. In the passed couple of weeks as I’ve explored the town and checked things out, I found myself in the midst of some amazing scenarios. A storm system complete with torrential rains and flash floods, a shark on the lose and fires breaking out all over town. It was quite riveting to watch the efforts of the locals running search and rescue and taking care of one another.

I am already excited to be making new friends and I’ve even gotten off the waiting list and rented a beautiful craftsman style home. I can’t wait to start decorating and get more involved in community life. Heh, who would have thought: me, a girl in the suburbs?

So, what are your thoughts on town living? Do you prefer something more private, or do you enjoy the hustle of a larger community?

Summer Loving

With temperatures in the high 80s and a few beach days already behind me, it’s Summer here in Florida as far as I’m concerned. Everyone who knows me, knows that Summer is my favorite time of the year. Short shorts, a summer glow and my favorite chair in the surf is really all a girl needs to enjoy this time of year.

Cielo from Moss & Mink has totally hit home with a new tufted chaise and oversized pouf, available at faMESHed. It’s seriously perfect for my favorite Summer activity. My Osmia and Navy & Copper pairing have me all warm and bubbly inside over the matching sweet mint of the these stripes and headband. I’m in love.

I also went a tone darker with new Glam Affair skin Zoe. I love the fierce eyebrows she’s sporting and the way this ‘summer glow’ highlighter from Mai Bilavio compliments her pouty lips.

Christmas Countdown

Christmas is almost here and I am so excited! It’s my favorite holiday and seriously, I’ve been planning the festivities since like, June. I don’t do too much decorating in SL for Christmas, simply because  it comes and goes so fast that by the time I get around to finishing a project, it’s time to tear it down again. But, I do love hoarding everything Christmas. And winter. And holidays. No wonder my inventory is so big.

Nevertheless, it’s that time of year and with designers releasing their wares and events such as Tannenbaum and the Arcade introducing their seasonal rounds, there is stuff everywhere!

I’ve played around with yet another tablescape for Christmas. What can I say? It’s a hobby! I’ve been in love with this new French Dining Set from Moss & Mink since it came out and I knew instantly that I wanted to do something elegant for the holidays. The table and chairs both include a hud to change the textures and patterns. In my mind, I pictured something with lots of white and gold, but then I saw this floral pattern for the chairs with blues, greens and reds and that idea went out the window.

My prized decor from What Next and goodies from the up and coming December round of the Arcade round out my holiday dining room and Christmas Feast!
