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.

The Float House – Interior

Click image for HQ version.

If you read my previous blog post you already know that The Float House is tiny. It’s one small room, with open doors on either side. I didn’t have to decorate the inside to show off the house, but the moment I saw it I knew I was going to do it. The Float House is perfect for spending a day on the shore; do some fishing and prepare it right there on the deck and maybe even stay the night and enjoy a morning swim in the sea. Sounds perfect to me.

This post is not sponsored by Nutmeg. I just love their designs and my inventory contains quite a lot of their stuff and, hell yes, I’m going to use them in my blog from time to time.

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.

Carroll’s Oysters

He was a bold man that first ate an oyster.

Jonathan Swift

Yeah, it was most likely a woman… So I’m still down the shore (I recently learned that’s what they say in New Jersey when they’re at the beach). I guess having grown up on a small island in the North Atlantic Ocean has left its mark because I love it here; it’s peaceful and the sound of the ocean and the seagulls soothes the soul. Also, Carroll’s Hot Topless Oysters are simply the best in Second Life, just sayin’.

Memories

Memory is the best of all gardens. Therein, winter and summer, the seeds of their past lie dormant, ready to spring into instant bloom at any moment the mind wishes to bring them to life.

Hal Boyle

Some of the best memories are made in flip flops, yes? Enjoy what’s left of the summer, people! I’m wearing a new tattoo, called Memories, by CAROL G for Men Only Monthly (opens July 20th) and # 17 by ARCBACK, which is a pair of denim shorts, for this round of Man Cave (open now!).

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.

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!
