Oh hello! Have you seen the latest release from Cheeky Pea? It’s already available in the main store so no need to fight the lag at some overcrowded event. The lovely Carolyn Gazebo set features a gazebo (obviously), but also all the furniture you can see in the pictures : chair, sofa, coffee table, side table, chiminea (with flames!), coffee tray, rug and mugs, cute knick-knacks, and the loveliest potted daisies. I vote that Cheeky Pea start releasing more plants in the future, she’s really gifted with them!
As my UK friends complain about a 22°C “heat wave” (71°F), and another one in Arizona tells me it’s in the hundreds F where she lives, I, somewhere in the middle, struggle to sleep and suffer next to the fan all day. Anyone telling me global warming isn’t real must be up for an earful! Anyway, I am slowly going through the lovely things I haven’t had the chance to show you, and here are a few of them.
I’m so behind in my blogging… I have to admit I’ve been binge watching Elementary and it’s kept me away from SL these past days. Anyway I’m back with a mint themed post… Lots of pretty things from past rounds of C88 and Fifty Linden Fridays, that should now be back in stores at their regular prices, but still pretty.
I got dressed this morning and felt like doing a bit of exploring. Of course then I couldn’t find anything that wasn’t crap for about an hour. I was about to give up, and declare today’s round of exploration a fail when I Bryn Oh’s name came up in my searching for this and that. It’d been a while since I wandered through one of their masterpieces so I thought i’d take a wander. Continue reading →
Sophie has returned from Auntie Inventory and I confess I’m a bit happy to have her home.
Let’s face it, it widens my shopping opportunities immensely now doesn’t it?
I was feeling like a bit of a pool lounge today because after I picked up the cute pumps that were out for FLF I found THESE and well my first thought was “These are the pool shoes you’ve been dreaming of Gidge, make them yours.”
So hey! I’m back from vacation. We had lovely weather, I managed to bathe in the ocean several times and although it was a bit cold, it felt really good, and I even got a tan. Now I can get back to showing you lots of lovely things I grabbed before I left and while I was away (the very old and crappy laptop I had didn’t allow me to take decent pictures…)
That jumpsuit from Ison I don’t even remember buying. I looked at my inventory at some point and it was there. I suppose I was trying to get the demo and misclicked and got the fatpack instead. I would blame the crappy laptop but you know what? I regret nothing, it’s impeccably meshed and fitted, and the textures are gorgeous. Not sure C88 is still open but if so, run and get everything!

Well I couldn’t resist taking some snaps as I wandered around SUMMERFEST this year. The layout is just adorable, with sweet vignettes set up and so while I wandered, shopped and ate my cotton candy I just couldn’t not contain my enthusiasm.
Is there ever an event that you always truly enjoy, yet struggle to remember? That’s me with Summerfest. It’s a nice layout, always lovely items and just a fantastic shopping experience but for some reason despite the fact that I’m thrilled when it arrives – more often than not it closes and there I sit, forlorn at having forgotten to go.

I’m trying to be healthier. I tend to be just so terribly lazy so I thought to myself, SELF, get up, get dressed in something cute and have some delicious fruit for breakfast. JUST DO IT. Get yourself organized and get some stuff done. Continue reading →
Adam & Eve have released some lovely new pretties for VINTAGE FAIR and I had to hit the town in this beautiful dress made JUST for dancing. The swirl of the skirt and lovely fabrics have my swooshing around the grid in glee.
Truly, only of my favorite creatures is the party dress and this one is extraordinary. Continue reading →
So hey! Vintage Fair is still going for another week, but I’m leaving today for a 2 week vacation, and won’t have access to a decent computer where I go. I feel it wouldn’t be right to show you crappy pictures of lovely things, so this is goodbye, for now. But please, please, if you haven’t already, go visit that awesome event, there are so many more things I wish I could have shown you!
