Afternoon Delight

Aruba, Jamaica, ooh I wanna take ya
Bermuda, Bahama,
come on pretty mama
Key Largo, Montego,
baby why don’t we go…

Boy, am I still wishing I was on vacation! Even though I have the day off, the rest of me is already groaning about having to go back to work. It definitely takes at least a week to get back into the right mindset after a week off, so I am using the best parts of the afternoon to relax, jamming to the Beach Boys and wearing this cute tassle-kini from Foxes and lovely heels from Glamistry.

The bikini is from last months round of the Luxe Box, with registration ending in just two short days in order to receive your July package! Remember, you can still purchase them inworld if you miss a month, but it’s going to cost you that additional L$500, so hurry and sign on up before it’s too late!

I’ve also been redoing my sim… again. And, even though I typically start a new theme before I finish setting up the current one (much to Petey’s dismay) I still enjoy snapping pictures all over the place. Despite living in Florida, I am currently enjoying the tropical flavor in SL as well!

My Outfit:

Genesis Lab – Summer Mesh Head (cream)
Foxes – Tassle Kini (mesh) (w/hud) for Luxe Box (June 2016)

The Home & Garden Expo 2014

I have all to do to catch my breath after my home decorating extravaganza of the past few days! After spending endless hours at the 2014 Home & Garden Expo, I parked my butt in these new Wingback Chairs by Apple Fall and decorated my new house from Culprit until I couldn’t keep my eyes open.

Granted, it’s taken me four days, but I just love the open feel of this villa (minus a few minor tweaks of my own here and there.) The rooms are huge and plentiful, the arches beautiful, the textures crisp and I love that the villa itself could be perfectly suited in a country setting, atop Mediterranean cliffs or in a rich vineyard in Tuscany. The options are endless!

If you love home and decor in Second Life, the Home and Garden Expo is undoubtedly one of the biggest events to catch over 90 of your favorite designers across nine sims. It’s also a great way to donate to such a wonderful charity as Relay for Life in Second Life.

Do visit the website too, especially if you are looking for direct landmarks!

The Home and Garden Expo runs from September 16-28.

Mayfair

Apple Fall has this amazing ‘Mayfair’ set out for the current round of the Arcade. Like his last ‘Paris’ set, I am loving the soft, vintage feel of the pieces that go beautifully with the oh-so coveted RARE Skybox. God only knows I had to play away my firstborn just to get it. But, it is so worth it! The Mayfair Skybox has three rooms off the main hallway- bathroom, bedroom and general living space. The textures are a little worn, a little vintage and super chic.

I finished furnishing my new bedroom with some more amazing pieces from the Arcade, including items from Second Spaces, Tres Blah and Pixel Mode. Really, if you haven’t managed to get in yet- keep trying! You can also cam-shop from the nearby Gatcha Galley sim as well!

I am also decked out new hair from Exile (for the Arcade!) and this new lazy Sunday inspired panty and tank set from Valentina E. Couture for the September round of fameshed. I thought it was a perfect match to lounge around the Mayfair suite. I love that it even comes with a robe that opens and closes with a simple chat command. Mesh is getting better and better every day.
