surf day at Baja Cove



Enough wind for good waves for surfing. But first some time for reading. Interesting what tjip is reading on his vacation ;). and interesting what fauna is on his board shorts ;)
Both are wearing beach wear from the Faboo Summer Hunt. I showed a lot for women in the post before this one, but there are also presents for men, like this board shorts from tjip. Nic is wearing a tatoo from the Summer diaries Hunt at Miss Jewell. This tattoo ( Maitreya and Belleza applier) is in the gift and an applier bikini ( also Maitreya and Belleza).
The pose from Nic in the water is a couple pose at marketplace from Luanes World.You get the blue surfboard too.

Oh and this is the last day from the sale at Apple Fall. All is 25, 50 or 75 ld. Grab your chance!!! Nic is enjoying her new tube (just 75ld for the enamel version and the iron  version). She is washing away all the salt from the sea at her home location in her gazebo ( see below). The tube is filled with fresh water and has many poses for singles as well as couples.The sim is often full.. use your hammer in hud.

down by the river





Down by the river... be on my side, i'll be by your side... You take my hand, i'll take your hand ( Neil Young)

There is a hunt from Faboo running at the moment, the summer hunt. The Faboo team writes: "we love this sim so much - we wanted to show you why! "  I was enjoying picture making at that sim.
There are 30 prizes for ladies in the hunt, and 10 prizes for men.The hunt object is a Treasure chest in a little pile of sand. Men's gifts are darker and have a red starfish".
Nic is wearing some of the presents. The dresses come with a hud.
The top with cat is from the last groupgift from No Cabide. Included is also a mini skirt (with color hud)
The necklace is a new gift from Finesmith at marketplace. The shop is already closed some time.

ups...did they see me?




In her monokini she tip-toed outside to pick up her paper.. but oh ups did they see me?
Nic is in her Tuscan home. Behind her you can see the outdoor shower from Soy (available at Knot&co). The doorway is always open and the shower is placed a bit inside, easier to use near the bedroom. Outside and inside you can see the tiles from the shower set and the flipflops.
Nic is wearing a lace monokini from Jana&Littles World. In the hud are also non  lace versions and other colors. I love to combine this lace set the white tattoo from NanikA. The tattoo was from the gacha at Sanarae, but that round is over (now soon in the shop/ or try your luck at Marketplace).

and i wonder if i ever cross your mind


And i wonder if i ever cross your mind......me it happens all the time... but i am pretty sure it happens to you.

Watch that little naughty one on her hammock, trying to pull at her bikini top strap and eating her ice cream. It is a good distraction from her thoughts.
It's all strawberries today...." Strawberry fields forever... Nothing is real...And nothing to get hung about...Strawberry fields forever" Fly away in your mind ....living is easy with eyes closed and dream.

The bikini is a release from Go Frock Yourself. It is in a gacha machine at the Sunshine&Seashells Event.The event has 30 merchants with over 70 gachas, running from July 8-30.  Go Frock Yourself has a set of exclusive nails for the event and 6 gachas. Many textures are in this bikini print gacha machine.
Love the dreamcatcher tattoo from Lush an exclusive new items for Twe12ve (starts on the 12th of every month). Ofcourse also a black tattoo is included (included are appliers hud ( Maitreya, omega, Belleza) , TMP  and Slink).
Nic's hair is a new groupgift from Love Hair, with bun and tail ( fatpack hud). The hair band is an old groupgift from Magika ( i think still available)

ma solitude


Non, je ne suis jamais seul avec ma solitude.

With this hair and dress Nic reminds me of cabaret girls from Paris or Berlin from the twenties of the last century. Ofcourse Nic's dress is a bit too modern.
The dress is from Yeliz, a gift. There are more gifts there. I show you another one below. The chair is from NOMAD  and the plant from Soy.
The hair is the last one that i show you in time from the Hair Fair, a gift from Cheveux. Today is the last day of the hair Fair.

together again...



The spirit is back  .. she is relaxed, sitting with her coffee and thinking about what he said this day.. You don't see it, but they have a view over the water from there. But when you are curious.. scroll down. The sim were they are sitting is Isle of Serendipity. Many private parcels there but in between are place were you are allowed to be and enjoy the beautiful surroundings.

Nic is wearing a new release from Jana&Littles SL World. In the hud are 8 texture possibilities I love jeans so i choosed this blue denim version from the hud. For the other colors the ruffle is more transparent. Nic's hair is again from the Hair Fair ( End 16th of July/ sunday). If you followed this blog the last weeks....and went to get the free hairs, that i showed, you got many nice hairs. This one is from Astrology, again free.
Tjip is wearing a denim jacket with t-shirt from Fe Style. There is also a hunt in the shop. When you find the male sign you get another camo t-shirt. I also saw an old menstuff hunt item for 10ld on the desk. On tjip's toast you can see a bikini. Cute isn't it? You can get that toast at the Okinawa Summer Festival as a gift.

the elements ... just the fire is missing

click small picture to enlarge


The elements: earth water, air and void... but the fire is missing.. or is there a bit fire inside or in her eyes? The dress from ::UNA:: for the Seasons Story has the elements for fantasy pictures. Nic is wearing the wind version of the dress on the first few pictures on the last one you see the normal version. You get all in the folder. The dress is in many colors available with a hud for the stars chains. Una is sponsor for the event.
Nic's tail and dress have been blown by the wind. Or did the butterflies move the dress and the tail? You get in the folder the butterflies near the skirt. And a butterfy for on your nose. The other butterflies are from Persefona.
The hair is available at Knot&co. I love that event... spended already much money there. Hmmm that is lesser good. The poses are from Le Poppycock, available at the Chapter Four. I love Nic's over the knee heels  from Ricielli. Also sandals are in the package. Comes with a hud to color many pieces of the shoes.The shoes were first released at The Cosmopolitains Sales Room. Now they are in the shop.

lots of orange juice and ice cream we need

click small picture to enlarge

At this lounge café you can sit, eat ice, drink lemonade and make music. Such places you can find in many big cities in rl. All sorts of chairs and loungers are used to get a loose and relaxed effect. They even do beach sand on the ground to get a beach sphere. At the pictures it is more in a garden.

I love that flamingo ice from Black Bantam. I already searched on marketplace to get one, but today i discovered that they sell it ( not as gacha) in the shop. And also another sort of ice cream. And then came the tip from Dancer about the orange bottles, a gift at PLAAKA. Just needed something like that. Her tip came right in time! The gift is in the notices of the group for just 2 weeks only (since 11th of July). Click the set and you get a bottle to wear in your hand.
This morning i hunted at 7 Deadly s{K}ins. You can find 13 sunflowers, because this week Ishara had her birthday. Three male skins, many female skins and a lipstick you get.
Nic is sitting on a PLAAKA set. The set is a release at Knot&co. The Summer project from Knot&co is from June 3 - Sep 30. Every saturday they add new items.
Behind Nic are tropical loungers from unKindness for the Liaison Collaborative. Three lovely sets are available ( flamingo, pineapple and hibiscus) The sets come with a wooden side table. I used one of the blanket from the lounger and spread it over the table. And a cushion set for on the ground.
From the Sparkling Summer Night Hunt are the chairs and the wooden crate with candle and two icecreams. Tip: search a star in the kitchen. Yes i did a lot of hunting today. So i need a lot of orange juice and ice cream.

we miss you Laura



Laura is on vacation and we are missing her.... well (cough)... the smeared make-up from Nic is a bit exaggerated. Nic didn't shed big tears because of missing her, but the smeared make-up you can get now at the the Darkness Event as an exclusive gift. And Nic didn't use tears to get the arms from Laura's very good friend around her. No worries Lau.

You know he wanted to show the hud he made and sells on Marketplace, called RendeZvous II. By accident i met him at the beach on monday morning. "This WAS a bit of serendipity" he said.
He rezzed the hud and we jumped on it and started to walk. You can dance, walk, lay, swim, fly and cuddle everywhere. When auto return from a sim is not too quick, the hud is usable on many beautiful sims.
We went for a walk. The walking mode has several poses. I love the one with the arms around the shoulder and the one in which he is wearing Nic's body over his shoulder. Very funny to see.
The companion can also choose from the menu. Just type /4 menu and it will pop-up. He told me: "There are a whole bunch of sitting poses...so if you just want to sit and watch the sunrise and talk....", "And it has a bunch of wonderful kisses". "Because of the wonderful animation the effect can be that someone falls in love with you. The closeness that RDV allows does make a big difference in relationship. It allows to be close and walk and talk and not lose one another".
I don't know if i may tell you this but he uses the hud to take Laura home now and then, wearing Laura over his shoulder. It's his favorite animation.
Adjustments are pretty easy when you have to deal with different sized avatars.
Here is where the RDV can be tried out for free: taxi

He is working now on a companion product that is almost ready for release.The user will then be able to add any intan animations (if they are Intan compatible)  "...including .... well... anything they want ;)".

only time


click small pictures to enlarge


Who can say where the road goes...Where the day flows, only time
And who can say if your love grows...As your heart chose, only time
(Enya)

You remember Nic and tjip from the post before this one? After the day at the beach they stayed in these cute tree houses to spend the night there. They didn't know that before. The houses stood at the swamp. No that's not true ..i placed them there for them. They had a good time.. but just those mosquitos!( see tjip trying to kill one at his arm). Tree houses in a swamp may be not such a good idea.
Nic is wearing a dress from the Midnight Madness from yesterday. As you know you still can get them ( not for free anymore) but for 50ld as last chance tomorrow. The bandana scarf from::K:: is unisex, a release for the Mens Dept.
Tjip is wearing the new groupgift from Cold Ash, a marine chino. Sale in that shop now. On tjips desk you can see a cactus, a groupgift  from::RAIGN::.
The houses are from the gacha at the Cosmopolitan Sales Room from Mesh India ( till 16th of July). From that gacha are also the bridge between the houses, the fireplaces, the tree lamps, the tiles on the floor ( they are ment to be as decor items for the wall..but i like them also this way). Items from the gacha from mushilu for the Seasons Story, i used also for decoration: the curtain stand with hanging lights behind the bed, the wood blocks with candles and the flowers. The Seasons Story Summer opens tomorrow. The baby koala on a branch is a groupgift at {Your Dreams}
