Vacation In Second Life – Shhhh its a secret!

Vacation in Second Life 1

I scoped the Rizzi Hotel out last year when I was looking for some where to spend some time celebrating an anniversary – it didn’t happen BUT I knew it was a place I wanted to vacation at – and I did it ! Both Zan and I are having a bit of a rough ride in real life so I decided to take a couple of days out of my Second Life home and book into this amazing hotel. Its so realistic and very glamorous. I checked in at reception and chose a junior suite, just $250L per night, so I booked for two nights. There are larger suites and a penthouse and also villas on the beach. Seriously loved the elevator ride to to my eighth floor suite. Views were amazing ! Each suite is decorated so beautifully, there is nothing else you could possibly need – you are given a small prim allowance but there was nothing my suite lacked. All the furnishings & décor were simply the best by the top designers in Second Life. The whole place is secure and safe, no unwanted crashers here!

Vacation in Sec ond Life 2

Day one I spent mooching around. On the ground floor are a couple of boutiques well worth a look at. I hung out by the pool, tried the jet skis – brilliant fun ! Then slid into the spa area to make use of the facilities on offer. It wasn’t overly busy but there were a few people dotted about. It was so lovely sitting to have coffee by the beach and seeing people chatting. One group of ladies had been to the onsite gym and were all dressed accordingly. I loved my time there as a singleton, but it would be awesome to spend time there as a couple also. Definitely will return to the Rizzi, I returned to my own home refreshed and relaxed.

Also new is the posh rose Champagne, extra bottles to place on the table, and a beautifully animated glass with frothy bubbles for you to wear.

It’s visually stunning, SO much to look at, so much to do ! As always with Aphrodite the win is in the little details and attention to beauty. The stools hold the animations to eat and drink and what superb animations they are. For instance, you can actually serve yourself wine from the bottle, just accept the offer of animation from the popups that come as you choose your pose. The brilliant thing is it’s all rather low land impact, so it wont eat up your prim budget to have it out all the time yippeee!

Spot light on….Valentino’s

For as long as I can recall…I’ve been going to Valentino’s to buy my greeting cards and gifts. I can’t remember how I found it but once I did (in 2007 I think?) Ive returned each time I need a special card. Anniversaries, birthday’s , Christmas, valentines day, and sometimes just because I wanted to say “I love you” or “I’m thinking of you”. The range of cards is amazing as is the style of them. You have the choice of buying ones that you can add your own customised greeting (it’s very simple to do) or you can purchase one with a greeting built right in.

I have a huge collection of Valentino Teddies ! Player sneaks one in my gift boxes on most occasions and I adore them, not too high prim either hurrah! Have a snoop around  at the myriad of celebration items, balloons,gift boxes,party poppers and some really lovely things like small blankets and drinks , boxes of chocolates etc..Ive received such a large amount of gifts from this store and they always thrill me to receive..thank you Valentino Tendaze !
