Le Petit Bistro

We've got a lot of stuff going on today. My good friend LauraGenia Viper and fellow blogger at Laura's Lair have been talking about doing a collaborative blog post for a while now, so we've finally decided to put that thought into action. Laura, her partner Kirk, and I pose for the camera in today's post!

Nestled at the edge of the forest is a quaint little place to relax and grab a cup of coffee. What is this place you may ask? Well, its Le Petit Bistro.

Le Petit Bistro by Serenity Style will be at The Gacha Mania event until March 15th. At L$70 per play, you have the possibility to receive any of the 8 common items and 1 rare item.

The trees in the pictures are by Little Branch. Little Branch has two sets of trees out right now at two separate events, so please do stop by both and check them out. The first set will be at Cosmopolitan until March 2nd and the second set will be at The Fantasy Collective until March 13th. All items are priced at L$386.

Island Life

Aloha, my braddahs and sistahs! I hope you all are having a good weekend. I recently ran across the Second Life Pic of the Day from Wednesday and all of the memories from my real life trip to Hawaii this past October came flooding back to me. With that being said, I decided to do an island themed blog post for today. The EPIA mainstore sim used in the Pic of the Day is an excellent location for this picture. There are plenty of good spots throughout the sim that would make good photo opportunities, so if you are looking for a photo location or a place to shop, go check them out. I will now bid you all adieu and leave you with the following images, enjoy!

A Hard Day's Work

Sometimes after a long day at work, you just gotta lay down and relax. Kaerri makes that task an extremely simple one with her line of furniture.

After mixing and matching items from two of Kaerri's furniture sets, I came up with this simple, yet warm and inviting living room setup.  The textures and materials used within these items are outstanding, which makes them look quite realistic. As you can see from the above picture, the couch looks extremely comfortable. To purchase both complete sets of furniture or mix and match like I did here, please go check out Kaerri's store.

The Ship of Dreams

Click HERE for the unedited version of this photo

It will be 103 years this April that many men and women boarded a ship bound for New York. Most of these men and women didn't make it. The Ship of Dreams, R.M.S. Titanic, was considered unsinkable at the time of its creation. We all know that sadly wasn't the case. The ship now sits at the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean. Time and the elements will eventually deteriorate the remains of the ship. While it will soon be gone, the memories will not be forgotten.

When I ran across this suit at The Mens Dept., the product image made me think of it as being from the early 1900s. So I set off on my journey to find the perfect spot to set up my scene for this post. I have always been fascinated with the history of Titanic, so that was my first choice for this blog post. I also started playing with the idea of Paris 1900, but eventually settled back on my original Titanic idea, clearly.

We, the people of Second Life, are very fortunate to have such great content creators. I'm sure most of you have been to the Titanic sim, but it is a must see if you have not. Be sure to have some formal wear ready for your visit, as it is a requirement. Do you remember in the James Cameron film where Jack and Fabrizio are standing at the front of the ship and Jack shouts, "I'm the King of the world!"? I tried to recreate that scene in the image to the left. How did I do? 

Not everything in this ship is historically accurate, as it is basically set up as a club/mall kind of deal. You have the ballroom at the rear deck of the ship and scattered throughout are various shops for you to browse through. You do get several areas set up just as they were in the real ship. You have to check out the grand staircase, it is very accurate if you ask me.

So the next time you are out looking for a place to explore, please go check out the R.M.S. Titanic sim. You won't be disappointed!

College Daze

Hey guys! Sorry about the long delay between this post and the last one. I was waiting for inspiration and have finally found it. During one of my marketplace sessions the other day looking for clothes, I ran across this polo shirt by Shai. When I saw it, I just had to do a school themed blog post. I am reusing the pants, shoes, and hair from previous blog posts because I think they work well with this outfit. I could be biased though since I am the one who bought them in the first place, haha - they work well in many situations. What do you think?
