Finishing Touches Gift

Utilizing some free gifts, I styled a garden with porch, picnic area, and garden swing, ideal to enjoy the warm summer days and upcoming USA holiday.  Inside the summer cottage are two fun chill-out zones.  I also added a few of the free gifts from the HomeStuff group ($50L group join fee) and freebies offered at the FabFree Headquarters.  To complete the scene I put my hunt hat on and scored some great gifts including: Whimsical Happenings Picnic Table Condiment Holder (Keep Calm & BBQ Hunt 6/8-6/21), Shabby Tabby Beach Plaques (enMESHed into Summer Hunt 6/15-7/15), and Fairey Angel Creations Music Cleft Bookends (Music Hunt 6/1-6/30).  Hope you enjoyed the summery (mostly free) styling and take some time to explore all the Hidden Gems in SL!

Beach Day

Tylar's Treasure (Nautical)

The phone was ringing off the hook this morning.  I dragged myself out of bed and reluctantly answered.  It was real life calling to inform me to get up, go outside and enjoy the beautiful weather.  “I can’t, I have too much to do,” I said, but real life wasn’t hearing of it.  So I surrendered, packed the Mustang, put the top down and headed over the hill to Half Moon Bay, CA (USA).  Wow, the beach was gorgeous.  The puffy white Cumulus clouds caressed the ocean, the sand rippled under my toes and the squeals of joy from young treasure hunters blanketed the shore.  It was a great day at the beach; I rushed home to recreate the experience in Second Life.

Beach Days Flamingo

Luckily for me the Perfect Ten event opens tomorrow, June 1st -15th and Tylar’s Treasures has the ideal beachcomber collection on sale for 50% off.  All items in the Sea Collection are sold separately and include: Adirondack chairs, pillars with ship wheel coffee table, ‘Sea’ oar wall art, dusty blue compass rug, sea barrel/crate, and pillar with seagull.  I headed over to The Mustard Seed and picked up the bronze flamingo welcome beach sign that’s on sale for $60L until Thursday, June 4, 2015.  Ms. Lavinia Godenot, owner of The Mustard Seed, gave me a sneak peek of her Day at the Beach Hunt prize (June 1 to 31), the magical beach buckets with twigs and seashells (2 versions: with or without twinkle lights).  One can’t go to the beach without a towel, so I hurried over to [free bird] and picked up the Day At The Beach Towel Rack (**free** for all group members, ends TONIGHT).  Finally, I had to reproduce the children’s thrill at finding buried treasures.  Little Llama created the Oh-FISH-ally Summer Set (kids beach chair, treasure cooler and sandcastle kit) for The Challenge May theme: Holiday/Beach.  I loved creating the exterior seaside styling and was inspired to design a coastal chic interior; upcoming post featuring more items from the Perfect Ten event and The Challenge.  Summer is almost here, so grab these beachy deals and Let’s Get Decorating!

Morea Style Mix & Match

Morea Style is celebrating it’s 6th Anniversary and is having a sale, 40, 50 & 60% off until July 15, 2013.  Morea is also hosting a best in Mix & Match contest that ends tonight, Thursday, June 27, 2013 midnight SLT.  I personally love mixing and matching outfits because it allows your own creative identify to shine, it extends your wardrobe and you have a great excuse to play dress-up!  Morea has a large variety of styles including casual, gowns and cocktails.  For my entry in the contest, I was inspired by the summer season and the West Coast boho casual style by paring an abstract teal & orange maxi skirt, Jennifer with a teal tank, Pam, accenting the casual style with feather jewelry and wooden bangles.

My bestie, Niki Silverweb went in the opposite direction creating a Salsa inspired cocktail dress, pairing the GlamRed beaded corset with the Daphne in Black & Red chiffon skirt. Niki completed the look with Chop Zuey jewelry and red rose trimmed heels, Ole!  Photo taken by the talented photographer and model, Kaliwillo Lane 🙂
