The Beach House

Gem's Finds

Every few years growing up in RL we would go to a beach house where my Dad would exchange work for a stay.  It was literally two boxes put on the edge of a cliff, but boy did we have a good time.  This house reminds me of those stays.  I love the coast and Boardwalk had the perfect items to help recreate this memorie in SL.  What a grand beach vacation this will be…….

As it stands the house built by Cinoe has been left empty in SL for sometime and is waiting for it’s new inhabitants to enter.  The husband has purchased this property for his blushing bride and wanted to surprise her with the purchase.  He decided to go big or go home by hiring M.Law Designs to provide a hot air balloon trip around the surrounding land in an evening sunset spectacular.  The palm trees by

Elegant Dressing Room

Gem's Finds

This new delux dressing room was released in this months Builders Box by Raindale and is currently at the main store.  How plush is this set up.  From the decor shoes boxes and the rack of clothes to the lush velvety plush on the elegant couch.  I would love this in RL, but will settle for having it in SL.  The sofa has 18 solo animations and 12 couples (PG, friendly and romantic) animations!  It also has a great HUD that has 10 colours for the blanket and cushions.  The clothing rack and mannequin both come with a clothing option or a plain option.  Let this new set dress up your dressing area today.  P.S. I guess Builders Box decided to close it’s subscription services as of this writing.

Only In Second Life

Gem's Finds

Only in SL will you find me wearing high heels to the beach.  Sexy Princess released a new swimsuit with cover up set called Wild Strawberries that is at The Spring Flair Event.  I am wearing the yellow suit with black cover up option.  I paired this suit with new shoes from Heels called Jess.  It is a spring two pack and comes in yellow and light purple.  Lastly, Image Essentials Props and Poses put out a new pose set at Designer Showcase called Shoes Showcase that show off shoes in photos nicely.  I find it hard to photograph shoes and these poses really keep the shoe visible.

Foggy Morning

Gem's Finds

I love foggy mornings as long as I don’t have to be anywhere.  Where I currently like I have micro climates along the cliffs and it is fascinating to watch.  This little English Country Garden Cottage by Harvest Moon* is a real gem.  It is in this weeks Syndicate Sunday for 69L and is a great bargain.  Everything that is pictured comes with the home.  Yep, the landscaped garden comes with the house.  The cottage alone has 163 LI and the full landscaped version has a 350 LI.  I love when all the hard lifting on a home is done for me.  All you have to do is add your furniture and your all set.
