I Don’t Think It’ll Fit Us Both..

They’re not really small, the Lil Monstas from Krescendo. I guess if you have a Big Monsta to compare maybe then they really are little! Also, they are resizable. Anyway, the super cute inflatable Lil Monstas are available right now at this round of MAN CAVE and you get 8 different colors in the set! The amazing Flirty Floatie, also from Krescendo, is now available in the Krescendo mainstore. PG and Adult versions and it comes with a hud that lets you turn off the neons altogether if you prefer and gives your the ability to mix and match 16 colours, 10 patterns, 8 chasing neons and 13 static neons!

ERAUQS is participating in this round of ACCESS with the Nog Sweatpants. They are super nice and comfy! Original Mesh, compatible with Legacy (shown on me), Jake and Gianni male mesh bodies. Available in 10 options, purchase singles or a discounted fatpack during the event. I paired the Nog Sweatpants with the Devon Tee also by ERAUQS.

The house with the pool is the gorgeous Villa Sunny by La Petite Vie, previously blogged here. Check it out in the La Petite Vie mainstore.

Oh The Leaves Are Turning Gold

I don’t know how it is everywhere else but way up north where I live, the birch trees are now yellowing and soon the rowan trees will follow, turning yellow and red. Fall colors are amazing.

The L’Auzon is the most recent release from La Petite Vie and it’s another addition to their line of Provencal style buildings. The L’Auzon is available at the early September round of Cosmopolitan. Rez it with or without the pergola. The vines are tintable, so instead of green I made them orange for this scene. Color HUD included for Exterior/Interior Walls & Shutters/Door. Full version is 43 Li and 10 x 8,5 m.

The Little Branch always include a season changer menu in their trees, which you bring up by clicking the tree. In this picture I’m showcasing their American Chestnut Tree v2 which is available right now at TMD. The American chestnut (Castanea dentata) is a large deciduous tree of the beech family native to eastern North America. The American chestnut was one of the most important forest trees throughout its range and was considered the finest chestnut tree in the world. The species was devastated by chestnut blight, a fungal disease that came from Chinese chestnut trees introduced into North America from East Asia. It is estimated that between 3 and 4 billion American chestnut trees were destroyed in the first half of the 20th century by chestnut blight after the blight’s initial discovery in North America in 1904. Read more on Wikipedia.

Evening Feeling

In the morning there is meaning, in the evening there is feeling.

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.

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.
