On Island Time

As the winds are blowing strong and cold and the temperature has crept down to 25F, I dream of a more comfortable lifestyle in a tropical environment. Thank you, my love, for sharing this dream with me and for giving this picture that something extra I needed.

Fall Celebration

Let’s take a trip to the countryside, breathe the crisp Autumn air, stay at the Stonehill Cottage for the apple harvest and have some home made cider by the firepit. Ahhhh…

Next to the cottage we have the Freeman Greenhouse, also by Galland Homes. It’s original mesh design, materials enabled and has a LI of 25.

For the celebration part, I’ve included the Riverdale Hay Set and the Cider Bar by CHEZ MOI.

Le Boudoir – The Little House of the Queen

Le Boudoir by NTD is an incredibly well made replica of the real Le Boudoir at the Hameau de la Reine in Versaille; nicknamed “the little house of the Queen” because Marie Antoinette would retire here by herself or with one or two of her friends. Get your own Le Boudoir for your sim or parcel at this round of Cosmopolitan, starting September 9!

Le Boudoir is 54 Li, copy/mod, and comes with a fence kit, texture changer HUD for the panel walls inside, fireplace and a hanging candle lantern.

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.

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 Land of the Midnight Sun

Your lips were like a red and ruby chalice,
Warmer than a summer night.
The clouds were like an alabaster palace,
Rising to a snowy height.
Each star its own aurora borealis,
Suddenly you held me tight.
I could see the midnight sun.

To Feel Loved

Fall in love with somebody who will never let you go to sleep wondering if you still matter.

Unknown

Are you one of those people who say that you don’t want to say I love you “too often” because you think saying it will make the words lose importance somehow? Stop it, you’re being foolish. Notice how I didn’t call you a fool, I’m just calling that particular behaviour foolish. (Just here for the credits? Then scroll ⇊)

You Make Me Feel…

How do you think your relationship is going to last if you hold back, the words or even affection? Instead of making your partner feel loved, you hurt them and make them feel like they’re being needy or too much. Do you know what I think when people do that? I don’t think they really love, maybe they don’t even know what love is and I believe their partners deserve better. You can’t love someone too much if it’s a mutual love! The words don’t ever lose their meaning! In fact, the more you say them and the more you both give (yes, the effort has to be equal), the more it solidifies the foundation of your relationship. Now, I’ve been hurt in the past, who hasn’t? I still don’t know how to love any less than wholeheartedly. I don’t want any less either, so it’s all good I’m all in. Now go make your loved one feel like they’re the most important person in this world.

Loved.
