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.

Memories (75% off Sale)

Zan has been nagging me about blogging the closing down sale of Rebel Hope. I have a RULE – no closing sales to be blogged. I decided not to and I’m sticking too it – they always make me feel a bit nostalgic. Sooooo I’ve broken that rule primarily because Rebel Hope is the store I bought all my  bridal attire from. Players Tux, my gown and the bridesmaids – oh plus flowers of course! When I heard the store was closing it made me sad, I’ve always carefully stored my wedding gown away (Thirteen years anniversary this year!) , I felt like an absolute Queen wearing it that day ❤ Soooo I decided to see if there was an updated version of my original gown – and nope, actually all the wedding gowns are now market place only – and look to be $100L a pop. They are not mesh body sized just small to large mesh BUT – oh they are divine ! I bought this one which came with a veil and hip sash of beautiful pearly flowers. The textures are simply beautiful. I found the medium fit perfect for my Maitreya body.

P.S The sale doesn’t extend to the market place btw

2018 Wedding? I’ve got you covered!

If you’re planning a wedding this year take note of the new set by Chez Moi. The “Be Mine” Wedding collection is fully interactive for your guests and for the happy couple!

♥ Texture change HUD: attach the HUD, and you can choose the colour of the wood/cushion of the chair/bench.

The Background has 20 lovely poses for couple pictures (10×2). I tried them out even though I was a single pringle – totally romantic and lovely. I especially enjoyed the animations on the guests table – guests seem to get overlooked sometimes – but this allows them to mingle,dance,drink etc – and the poses look so natural.

This set is available at The Trunk Show currently until January 18th.

Blushing Bride (freebie inc)

 

FREE mesh wedding gown - $25L lillys - kokolores hair NEW!

Ahhh spring – the beginning of the wedding season, and I’ve found a glorious gown for your special day (or any day as its Second Life we inhabit right?!) This is a free item from Atis, its parked right on the table in the store. Really great fit over my mesh body, all standard sizes included. Beautiful embroidery print all over the front of the gown, deep cut rear and an interesting cut out style on the shoulders. You can get your paws on my new hair from KoKoLoReS at the new round of The Seasons Story that opens on the 10th April. Its called “Zuzka” and is a charming up do, with optional cherry blossoms to wear.

Kokolores hair NEW! Lilly bouquet $25L

Heres a little more detail for the hair and also the rather gorgeous Lillies I’m holding. I found this, along with many other hand held posies at Sweet Garden and I think I almost bought the lot ! Just $25L per bunch with a lovely hold animation, great if you’re into taking pretty photos etc. You’ll need to climb the stairs to find them in the main store.

Ramp it up

Boadicea Mesh dress (top and bottom parts) Marianna Porterfield of RaMp sent me a little box of goodies to see ! I wanted to share with you one of them called “Boadicea”. It’s such a feminine design and it immediately made me think of summer weddings. The dress is actually in two parts, you can wear them together as above, or on their own like below. The top layer is lacey and sheer and fits beautifully over the satin dress beneath. Delicate capped sleeves leave your arms bared, and the handkerchief hemline flutters around your ankles. Boadicea Mesh dress (top part) I really felt like I wanted to dance across the meadow, might have been an idea to put some lingerie on first though – luckily no one was around. The lace fabric looks antique, and it does also come in a cream version and a black version. Low price at just $99L a set. If you like my stand in groom, he’s from Image Essentials, there’s a range of these cute guys with a pose built right in (I think I bought them all!) I’m always wishing for a guy to pose with, so this is dead handy-dandy for me. RaMp market place

Spring time Wedding

 

Immerse Weekend offer

Super Sales Weekend is ahead and this gorgeous slinky gown is up for grabs at just 90L. Its called Zuri and is an off the shoulder design, it also comes with an optional floral shoulder attachment and jewelled brooch. I’m also wearing a sweet little clutch bag from Glow Designs, which comes in a whole heap of other colour choices – love the heart shaped links on the handle ! Would be a perfect outfit for one of those Spring weddings no? This time of year always see’s a flurry of wedding invites for me in real life, sometimes SecondLife – c’mon someone get married and invite me !

Aphrodite Store - Wedding cakes NEW!

Of course any wedding needs a cake, and I’ve got these to show you from Aphrodite Store. They are beautifully crafted, and I actually felt like swirling a fingertip through the icing to get a sneaky taste ! Three themes (that should keep even the most hardened bridezilla happy.) There is “Choco Roses”, my personal fav, “loving swans” which is so delicately iced and has a pair of swans nuzzling on the top and also “beach lovers”. Each cake dispenses wearable foodie items for your guests, lovely animations in them too. Wayyyyy back in 2007 our wedding cake was a prim nightmare – if memory serves me right it was around the 170 prim mark. These are seriously low prim and you can entertain your guests perfectly in such style.

Inspired (freebie and cheapie).

sim1I have been such a lazy mare in SL and just wandered all around my new Sim find.  I’ve taken so many pictures I’m not sure what to do with them so indulge me as I post more piccies.

ApplesHowever I do have a good excuse as since our sim is Winter white and I’m starting to yearn for a bit of colour in my life (RL and SL) I knew that this sim would be a perfect place to take a couple (or more) snaps of my new freebies and a brilliant hunt find.  The mesh top and skirt are freebies from J.Allen Store (it’s in the window with a couple of other freebies) and you get a choice of 3 colours for the top but I loved the juicy orange.

sim2Again the Lennon Sim is an amazingly beautiful laid out and planned rental sim but since the owners have been so kind as to leave it as an open sim even for us casual visitors there are some really beautiful places to hang out in and just enjoy the view.  As always I can only say please resist entering people’s homes, unless of course you get so awed you want to rent a home here yourself.

FlowersMust confess I thought I was buying a cute flying pig which in a way I was but it turns out the pig contained this delightful,delicate and pretty hair flowers. Turns out the pig is from an old hunt called When pigs fly hunt which is well over now but obviously Norena Soir has been so kind she’s left it out for us.  Since it’s an old hunt I don’t think I’m breaking any rules when I tell you it’s attached to the special offer boards.  As it happens I was so pleased with this I paid the 75Lds and joined her group and then grabbed the freebies which I haven’t had time to check out yet but the ornate mask and bunch of flowers on their own look as though they’re worth the joining free alone.

Last piccie of Lennon but I took so many it was hard to choose which I liked most.
