Protector

The Garuda is a mythical creature featured in both Hindu and Buddhist lore; a semi divine creature, half-bird, half-man. In Hindu mythology it represents birth and heaven and is the enemy of all snakes. In Buddhism Garudas are not a single being but more a mythical species, able to cause hurricane force winds with their several miles wide wingspan, charged to protect Mount Meru. In Tibet the Garudas are a symbol of wisdom and all over Sout-East Asia statues of Garudas are protecting the temples. No wonder the Garuda is also popular tattoo art!

This beautiful Garuda tattoo, by CAROL G, is available at Men Only Monthly starting today!

Walk With Me

If you want to walk fast walk alone, if you want to walk far, walk together.

ARCBACK has done it again, gone and made a fantastic outfit for the trendy guy; with # 18 you get a whole outfit. Everything, EVERYTHING I’m wearing is in the set! You can of course buy each piece individually, or you can buy a mega fatpack which contains just too many options… Let me try to list a few; you get a hat to either wear on your head or to spin on your hand, wear your shirt tucked, or long like I do. And there’s a texture changing option for every piece. The # 18 Trendy set is available right now and until August 31st at The Mens Dept.

Endless Night

As if the night had said to me,
‘You are the night
and the night alone understands you
and enfolds you in its arms.’
One with the shadows.
Without nightmare.
An inexplicable peace.

The Moonlight Lounge.

You are welcome inside, but you might never leave. A collaboration with Mahogany is always a lot of fun, this time we decided to decorate almost the entire build we’re showing you today; The Vintage Tower by MadZaza. It’s a tower alright. Four stories high. The two first floors are rough looking, but the two top floors have beautiful floors, wallpaper and fireplaces. We made the third floor into a living room, there’s a balcony that goes all the way around it and you can step outside through the double doors. You can open the windows, but they are all barred. A safety precaution, maybe?

A Symphony in Black and Red.

The top floor works nicely as a bedroom. The Vintage Tower is such a cool build and a lot of fun to decorate! You can see Mahogany’s blog post here.

The Happy Hobby Gardener Pt. 2.


Inside the greenhouse is plenty of room for your plants, shelves, tools and potting stations. I’m off to a good start here I think; I got my EED potting table and hanging planters with different herbs. The potting table is a new EED mainstore/marketplace release; it’s a decorative item, with a playing cat, potting and garden tools and strawberry planters. I also have my CHEZ MOI garden shelf in here and it’s filled with potted herbs that are all included with the shelf, but not linked, so you can choose to use them separately or with the shelf and move them around as you please. You also get a lemon tree for your greenhouse or garden when you purchase the shelf! In my previous blog post i showed the outside of the greenhouse, which is available at the CHEZ MOI mainstore and so is the garden shelf.

The Wild Garden

The Happy Hobby Gardener Pt. 1


I like doing yard work. Cutting grass, trimming trees, moving rocks. I haven’t done much planting though, but I suspect I might like that too if I ever get a garden that’s my own. Then I’d want a greenhouse like this one from CHEZ MOI; with a mixture of glass and bricks it’s a fantastic piece of garden decor all on its own and with the lean-to shed I’d have everything I need to be a happy hobby gardener. The cute little shed in this picture is made by HJM Designs. It comes with exterior and interior decor, 8 single animations, prop rezzer, and there’s a texture change menu upon Touch. You can find both the greenhouse and the shed in their respective mainstores (slurls below). I’m showing you the inside of the shed in this post and tomorrow, or later today depending on where you are in the world, I’ll have another post showing you the inside of the greenhouse.

Looking Forward

There is a stirring in my soul; a restless, wild anticipation.
I am staring out into the horizon, as far as I can.

I can’t see what’s beyond it — but I can feel it.

A New Day

The sun will
always rise and
dogs will always
be happy to see you

Hanging on to the summer and the beach a little longer to showcase a couple of items now available in the CHEZ MOI mainstore and marketplace; the Hawaiian Tiki Bar which comes with drinks dispensers that hand out wearable drinks with drinking animations. The bar contains animations for bartending and the chairs for the seated customer, it’s awesome! Then there’s the Sombrero Tiki Bench which matches the bar perfectly. You’ll find plenty of single and couple animations in that one – I took this picture while sitting on the Tiki Bench. I’ve also used previously blogged items to make my tropical resort look good; in the background in this scene you can see the Carolina Wooden Patio Set (I changed the colour of the umbrella and the chairs to white for this picture). This set is available now at The Liaison Collaborative. The Rustic Patio Couch from the Tropicaliente Gacha Set is also back there and it’s available at The Gacha Garden. Slurls below!
