De-Stress

A calm and modest life brings more happiness than the pursuit of success combined with constant restlessness.

Albert Einstein

Puppies (f.y.i. all dogs are puppies) are not only our best and most loyal friends they can sense how you’re feeling. If you’re happy, they are happy too. If you’re sad, they want to comfort you. If you’re anxious or stressed then so are they. The Fox Terrier Companion by TLC Animals will lay down and relax when you’re sitting and if you’re at home close to his bed he will go lay in the bed. Such a good boy! The TLC Animals Fox Terrier – Companion is now available in the TLC mainstore.

KOPFKINO did an update to their Blum Sofa set. There’s texture and shadow fixes among other things and also a non-smoker version Books & Wine. If you bought the set before April 25 this year and haven’t received the update be sure to hit the redelivery terminal at the KOPFKINO mainstore.

Celebrate

It’s time to celebrate! Here’s to M. for overcoming a difficult RL situation yay! and here’s to CHEZ MOI who’s celebrating their 9th anniversary these days. Everything in the CHEZ MOI mainstore is at 50% off through tomorrow May 14th. It is such a great accomplishment to manage to turn your hobby into a thriving business. I’m still a fairly new resident with my 3 years in Second Life but my first SL living room was the CHEZ MOI Kensington Collection and a CHEZ MOI hot tub out on the deck. Congratulations and happy anniversary to Nanda and her CHEZ MOI, here’s to many more! Cheers!

Complete your party decorations with the fancy champagne cart by CHEZ MOI, and create a welcoming scene for your visitors to toast, chat and be merry. The Celebration Cart sits up to two avatars with single drinking and chatting animations for each spot and it also contains 20 couple animations, 1 static couple pose for pictures.

BONDI and ERAUQS are both at ACCESS with new releases. BONDI made a new clear lens with The Chief Sunglasses. With the same levels of opacity options as the colored lenses it’s looking pretty awesome for when you’re just wearing glasses! The Diego pants and shirt from ERAUQS is a new level of awesomeness by ERAUQS, I love the fatpack HUD texture choices! The Diego outfit is compatible with Legacy (shown on me), Belleza Jake and Signature Gianni male mesh bodies.

It’s a pleasure to introduce to you the Avitat Monroe Dining Set. It’s a big set but the only thing I couldn’t fit in this scene was the china cabinet, everything else is here; table, chair, chandelier, carpet, curtains, end table, sideboard, lamp, mirror, picture frame, plant pair and three hearts decor. You can find the set at the Avitat mainstore or marketplace.

Gone Skiing

Oh hey! La Petite Vie is here, well, they’re at Cosmopolitan with the La Passerelle; a micro chalet for both summer hiking and winter skiing.

The Little Branch is participating in this round of The Mens Dept with the Scots Pine Tree v2. The Scots pine is claimed by Scotland as its national tree. This pine’s long life makes it a popular specimen for some landscape applications, as well. In fact, the Scots pine has an expected life-span of 150 to 300 years; the oldest recorded specimen was in Lapland, Northern Finland, estimated at more than 760 years old.

Now in The Little Branch mainstore is their Douglas Fir Tree v2. Botanist-explorer David Douglas — this tree’s namesake — described it as “one of the most striking and truly graceful objects in nature.” Tree expert Michael Dirr heralded it as “one of the noblest forest trees.” To say the Douglas fir is beloved by the tree people of the world is definitely accurate. The general public has a number of reasons to appreciate this tree as well. Douglas fir is one of the most important lumber species, it makes up nearly half of all Holiday trees grown in the U.S., and its attractive appearance and growth rate make it popular in yards and parks.
