The Arcade - Scarlet Creative - Mansion Rare win

Its almost time for a new round of The Arcade and I for one will be hitting up the machines and the yardsales to get my fix. Above is the rare win form Scarlet Creative , the “Amelie inspired by spring Mansion”. The colour tones on this are exceptionally beautiful. The roof is a teal green – blue hue, it really sets off the colour of the walls magnificently. Each play is only 50L and the other prizes (lounger,bath,sofa,towel rail,basket) are all worth a try for too. I’m always surprised by the space inside Charlotte’s homes, outside they can appear to be quite delicate little builds, but inside so much room.

Scarlet Creative - The Arcade

I do get a bit obsessed with the textures in the Scarlet Creative builds especially the antiquated plaster effects – I know that’s weird but heyho ! The thing is I do own a place in France (just outside Paris) and so much of the textures are like these – its why I fell in love with the place – its not an excuse honest! Anyhow, many levels to explore and fine features to admire. Thanks Charlotte ❤

My new friends

Free Bird Budgies NEW!

I was sooo excited when I saw the new Budgie pets from Free bird that I zoomed over straight away to snap one up. I ended up getting two birdies ! Then I bought some for Zan ! I adore budgies and have nearly always had one or two as pets in real life. My last two died a while back, so in their memory I named my SL budgies after them (peep & chirp) I was dead lucky and snagged a rare pink cage first try *squeee*. Anyyyyway a little about how they work. The cage and birds are in gacha machines, I can’t imagine you’d be unhappy about any of the wins, they are all so lovely.

Important note: YOU DO NOT HAVE TO PAY FOR FOOD FOR THESE BIRDS.

Fabulous, I’m a bit jaded of buying food for pets in SL, all you have to do with these little lovelies is click on the cage at least once a week and choose “tend”, voilà, all good to go. You can also take them into your inventory and they wont die or get sick – hurrah! If you join the free bird group (its free) you can also claim your gift of the snazzy beaded swing you see in my cage. There are other accessories too – I bought a cuttlefish for mine. If you do forget to tend to your new babies – there is a bottle of vitamins that will treat the whole cage (99L) , you can have up too four birds in one cage – brilliant! They sing and hop about, play on the swing, eat, drink and generally behave like budgies do. If you go to the store there is a very good board that explains how it all works – its dead simple to be honest but READ it anyway. Ohhhhh don’t be afraid about prims – it’s really really low !

Warming things up

Aphrodite Sauna  shower

I was cheered up immensely when I saw this sauna and shower set from  Heart Homes @Aphrodite. I simply adore sitting in a sauna, so relaxing and peaceful. (Dont like it when someone comes in and tosses stinky oils on the coals though!) This set is brilliant for around a pool or out in your garden, lovely swedish styled wood finish makes it sooper pretty too. Aphrodite dont stint on the finishing touches either, plenty of baskets of treats, towels and robes scattered about to give it a genuinely realistic feel. Both pieces have squillions of poses for singletons, couples, males & females.

The sauna also has some rather unique animations included, stoking the coals, dabbing your face with a towel. Plussss some totally naughty adult things ! (infact LOTS of naughtiness woot!) What I really appreciate is the fact that the whole set comes in a single rez box – meaning you rez the box, touch and voilà . You can move it all into place just by dragging the rez box around – SO simple and easy. Also it’s not hard linked – so you have out as much or as little as you wish.

Aphrodite Sauna & Shower set

The wood used is lush, its got depth and with the metal bands round the barrel styled sauna cabin – it has such a fantastic appeal in any number of settings. I think I might leave mine out beside the pool – a quick trot from the patio into the steam will make my SL mornings zingy.
