Just When You Thought Your Lindens Were Safe

1 Summer Romance sm

Maybe you really did think your bank account was safe. Then the calendar turns over to the 7th, and not only does The Liaison Collaborative open, but so does a brand new event, Bon Voyage! And if you make it through those two events, the page flips to the 8th, and Collabor88 opens. Oh well, no use saving for a rainy day – go forth and spend now!

The Liaison Collaborative this month has tons of lovely things, as you can see from my hair, the lanterns, the stool, the gorgeous olive tree and my pose. Dig into my credits, and you will find all of the details on these gotta-have items. I’ve been teasing with stuff from this event, but now that it is open, you can go see for yourself.

1 Summer Sweetheart sm

Do check out my shoes from fri.day for Bon Voyage. This event, which runs for a full month (August 7 – September 7) is themed around a specific country. The inaugural round centres on Japan. Think kawaii, think adorable, think bunny-eared stockings to go with your heels! The stockings are optional so you can choose to wear the shoes alone, but with that wriggly little nose, why would you?

Even after splurging on these two events, makes sure you save a few coins for the 5th anniversary edition of Collabor88. {what next} brings you this delightful summer house, which will perk up any corner of your garden. I simply adore the bi-fold doors and the metal roof with the finials. (As an aside, did you know you could find that term by googling “pointy bits on a roof?” 😉 ) You can also pick up the potted olive trees – obviously the little brothers of the giant version from The Little Branch from TLC – with the summer house.

So, the moral of the story is…your Lindens are never safe if you stop by my blog!

Urban Haven

1 Soho sm

If you are a fan of an urban theme, or just in the mood to create an urban haven, you’re in luck right now in Second Life! The theme for The Liaison Collaborative May round is “Urban Jungle” and there are loads of great edgy items to pick up. From the gachas from [Toiz] to the regular purchases from [Fetch], 22769 ~ [bauwerk], Industry 7 and unKindness, you have a plethora of choices of products and buying method. It is a round that you really can’t miss!

Also continuing the urban theme is, of course, 6 Republic, where you can populate your home or garden with more urban-ish things. [ keke ]‘s London set is, as always, beautifully crafted with a choice of a dark or light style and of course, a bit of tasteful bling. The pieces can be purchased separately, but DO splash out on all of them. They’re just lovely!

And while the theme for Collabor88 is “Americana,” the guitar props from {what next} are so versatile they can easily fit into an urban setting. The guitar case is my favourite, with a variety of print textures at a touch to announce your venue’s acts, or to simply make a statement in your own loft.

Go forth and shop. Your urban haven isn’t going to create itself.

1 Munchies

A perfect evening…sitting in front of the television, watching a rerun of “I Love Lucy” and chomping down some snacks. I may or may not be blaming my attack of the munchies on the lovely foliage adorning my living room 😉

The Challenge has begun again, and you can get most of the goodies decorating this scene during this round of Vintage/Retro. The television from %Percent comes pre-loaded with several classic shows and includes not only poses, but snacks! Despite the pizza and Coke you can see pictured, I’m actually chowing down on a wholesome bowl of berries. Even better, it is discounted until August 7th, so hurry on over! Chic Aeon of Chic Buildings took a cheeky spin on retro with her “medicinal herbs” in a can and Kuro’s Luana Dawg brings out the inner hippie in us all with her beaded curtains. Finishing off The Challenge offerings is the rug from part of a set from [Fetch].

Of course, I will provide you with links to each store, but you can click on The Challenge link above to see all of the goodies in this round.

Now, has anybody seen my Milk Duds? I need chocolate!
