Emerald Isle!

Waterfront BarnFirst, a big congrats goes to the team behind the SL Home & Garden Expo 2016 who raised $4,010,116L for Relay for Life of Second Life, benefitting the American Cancer Society.  Second, a warm thank you to all my readers who supported the cause.  The RFL-SL fundraising season continues with the 10th Anniversary Fashion for Life from March 6th-20th.  This year the offerings are vast on nine sims with daily entertainment, fashion shows, $10L hunt, live auction and photo contest, all details here.  If I have some free time this week, I’ll try to showcase some of the items but in the meantime please check out my nearest and dearest friend, Rhiannon Colclough blog, Fashion is Fun!

Park Place Swank & Gacha Good March EventsThis coming Thursday will be St. Patrick’s Day and I’ve always marked the occasion with a holiday themed blog post.

We’re having a heatwave…..a tropical heatwave on the West Coast. I live in the San Francisco Bay Area and highs are expected to hit in the upper 90-105 degree this week. SF sizzles in the 80’s, so you can imagine how steamy it get’s in the upper 90’s.  Funny thing is, Gloria is embracing the baking weather while preparing for this weekends first official summer party at our new Hampton’s Beach House.  I caught Glory red-handed “testing” a snow cone from Standby Inc (a summer special offered at The Garden), while soaking up the sun in her LacunaInc Summertime in Tangerine jean & tank combo (offered at The Attic.)  The Garden is part of The Liaison Collaborative project and it’s a monthly theme home decor event that runs for 3 weeks (June 15-July 10).  I love home decor and I’m always on the look out for fun additions to be inspired by.  I fell for the Standby Inc Snow Cone machine and the {what’s next} Sandbridge Ice Cream cart.  The Poser Pavillion is also organized by The Liaison Collaborative project and has the same theme,  Sandbridge (Beach & Natural) as The Garden, filled with fun summer beach poses by top pose makers, available until July 5, 2013.  Glory is sporting items from My Attic @ The Deck, a  weekly theme event available from June 21- June 30, 2013 (Escapes) with all items from designers 95L.
