POE7 Hunt | Alway Design Dress (Headshot)

Happy day after Black Friday, the kick-off for holiday shopping.   I use to be one of those people who got all her shopping done early, but lately I’ve noticed that retailers don’t have the best buys on sweaters in April (why not :-)?  What I love about Second Life is you can get all your shopping done early and are prepared for any last-minute party invites.  This year, I’ve created a whimsical holiday storage area using mostly Serenity Style items where I keep all my toys, but today I discovered they got loose and came to life.  As you can tell, I was a bit miffed but kept my cool while wearing the Peace One Earth 7 Hunt items from Always Design, GDit JewelryExquisite JewelleryDellybeams Gem Gallery, and ZOZ Slink Nails.  Have fun on the POE hunt and check out the numerous events Serenity Style is participating in this month.

The Garden Cafe is Now Open!

Garden Cafe outside

There is nothing better than a great cozy garden cafe to enjoy the wonderful spring weather.  I love lunching on the terrace surrounded by plants, flowers, veggies and friends.  Attempting to recreate my favorite picturesque local haunt, I used Cleo Designs (past Lazy Sunday special) Summer Cottage and many great finds from The Feeling Event (3/15-25/14)

Matching red wagons bank the entry of the garden cafe, with overflowing flowers, pets, windmill, and Welcome Spring signs.  This cafe is always Open for friends!  Your table awaits you, complete with pastries and a floral arrangement in a tin watering can.  Lining the windows are Frogstar’s Waiting for Spring Bench ($125L), and placed on the back walls is Serenity Style’s My Sweet Spring Set ($199L) & ::Fabuleux.. I love my Home Kitchen Shelves ($69L each).  Soft spring pastels art work and hanging plants complete the garden cafe.  This enchanting retreat is the perfect place to relax, stop by The Feeling Event to get some of the key pieces.  Taxi please…
