Little kisses
just because
…are the best.

Ba Mwen En Ti bo

I’ve been spending all of my SL summer in the tropics and I love it! Ba Mwen En Ti Bo, “Give Me A Little Kiss”, is the name of this charming rum bar by Never Totally Dead… and it’s their prize for the Skull-n-Bones hunt that’s open August 18th – September 18th. When the hunt ends, the prize will be gone! Feel free to play the whole hunt, or just visit the NTD store to grab the prize! it’s up to you! You can find info, hints, etc at the store! Happy hunting!

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 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.

Dark City

The trash container and pallets are included in the build. The trash container opens, by the way.

Featuring one of two new sponsors today! This is +[MadZaza]+ and +[MadZaza]+ does wonderful dark builds, like this first one; the Vintage Factory. On the outside it looks like any other old industrial brick building in the city, but inside you’ll find someone has made a home of it. There’s a huge basement. You’ll find on/off light switches next to the door. The staircase leads you up to the living quarters; three big rooms, with amazing floors and wall textures and beautiful windows that open. I’ll make sure to take some pictures inside later, but for now do check out Mahogany’s blog post because she already took some!

Sidewalk, Scaffold, spray cans, tires and barrels are not included.

Coastal Sunset

I think I’m going to stay on the coast for the duration of the summer. It’s really nice, not too hot, and take a look at this cute little float house I found today by Never Totally Dead! Decorated with hanging wall planters by HJM Designs and interior decor by Nutmeg (I’ll show you a picture of that later in a post by itself).
The Float House comes with a chair containing single sits (the chair is unlinked so you can move it around) and the house has a resizer menu on touch. I’m showing the original size, which has a Land Impact of 32.
HJM Designs have made 5 different versions of The Bucket Wall Planters, I’ve used the Mixed Flowers and the Hanging Plant. The planters also come with an animated butterfly or bee, you turn the animation on or off by touching them. You can also change the texture of the wood by touching that; light or dark versions.

The Abandoned Barn

Available exclusively and ONLY for this upcoming round of Cosmopolitan; The Abandoned Barn by Never Totally Dead. It’s an amazing build, it really looks like it’s been abandoned but someone cared for it enough to keep it from falling. It’s beautifully textured and comes with a texture changing HUD where you can choose between 6 different textures; Red, Milk, Green, Old, White or Creepy and if you’re a member of the Never Totally Dead in-world group there’s a bonus texture called Sunshine.

When NTD says something is exclusive, they really mean it, because you can only get it in this round of Cosmopolitan, when it’s gone it’s gone! Cosmopolitan opens on July 14th.

Le Moulin du Hameau

Le Moulin du Hameau – front (click image for HQ version).

This amazing build by Never Totally Dead was inspired by a real world building, Le Moulin du Hameau de la Reine; the watermill cottage on the Queen’s Hamlet – A rustic retreat that was built for Marie Antoinette in the park of Château de Versailles. You can now have your own beautiful watermill house in SL, just head on over to this round of Cosmopolitan!
