Values Determine The Future

I’m not going to say too much about the title I chose with this picture except I hope you’ll think about it for a moment. What are your values? What values are you teaching your children?

I’m so pleased to show you the Villa Barona by La Petite Vie, which is available right now at a 50% discount at Cosmopolitan with just a few days left of this round! This house comes in three versions; full version with pool and exterior grounds, house and pool version and house only. The full version is 177 LI and has a 52 x 44 m footprint. HUD controlled texture changer for exterior and interior walls and the pool water.

You can find the beautiful newly released Rongo tree at Yugen. 5 different shapes in the pack, high and low LOD versions and HUD controlled texture changer for leaves and bark.

The Potted Palm from The Little Branch I already blogged earlier but you know, they really look good in this space! Available at Man Cave.

What also looks good in this space is the patio furniture from GOOSE. The RELAX couple lounger and Rope terras set are both previous releases so they’re all available at the GOOSE mainstore.

The Little Branch just released the Potted Palm v.1 and v.2 packs for the MAN CAVE event. Both packs contains cyan, green and pots. The palms are 3 LI each initially but Copy/Modify means LI will change if resized.

Caribbean Blue

The Little Branch is participating in the Vintage Fair with the Royal Palm. The Royal Palm is a species of palm that is native to Mexico, parts of Central America and the Caribbean, and southern Florida. A large and attractive palm, it has been planted throughout the tropics and subtropics as an ornamental tree and can grow over 80 feet! No beach should be without a slew of these majestic palms, in differing sizes to create a totally tropical beach feeling!

Let’s spend the weekend at the beach?

The Fleur Hanging Chair is a new release from CHEZ MOI for the Whimsical event. It’s a pleasant hanging chair for bedrooms, living rooms or outdoor spaces. Comes with 20 male and 20 female animations and a texture changer HUD for the cushion.

I’m super excited to welcome Yūgen to my blog and I’m showcasing their Cabinet A+B set; two charming cabinets that comes with a colour HUD that gives you a multitude of colour combinations, if you want to, like I did! They can be single colour too, of course, but what’s the fun in that?

Also from Yūgen; the Happy Dish Rack, which of course matches the cabinets, and the beautiful and fun Hanging Beads.

Beachy Sunset

The Agarwood Tree is an evergreen tree that was mostly found in Northeast India, Bangladesh and Southeast Asia, and is now considered endangered. Deep, rich, earthy and personal, its sweet yet sharp balsamic woodiness will stimulate all of your senses. Agarwood trees grow randomly in the forest, usually in difficult to reach places. A couple of them have made it down to our beach for the sake of this picture. Agarwood is also an aphrodisiac, both in oil form, and as incense. The Agarwood Tree is a new release by The Little Branch and it’s available at this round of Uber. Happy landscaping!
