Summertime!

Summertime is upon us, and many designers in SecondLife are in the fun and sun mood!  New releases from FATEwear and ColdLogic will have you in a plethora of styles for the beach or the pool parties that are surely to abound.

FATEwear just released six different style swim trunks and briefs along with a ton of beach towels to wear with them.  As usual, Damien Fate offers a wide array of colors and designs, conveniently located in his spiffy HUD which makes buying that FATEpack (fatpack) so appealing.  All those colours at your fingertips!  Even if you are not much for buying fatpacks, the single colours are just gorgeous and sure to please.  You can see them all on the official FATEwear blog.

ColdLogic has also released some beautiful bikinis for the ladies, and they are sure to please both wearer and admirer alike!  I really love that FATEwear and ColdLogic will release items on the same day, it makes shopping for Mrs. Raynier a great deal of fun, and as you can see below, we enjoyed our new threads quite a bit.

In addition, Apple Fall just released a gorgeous mesh pool that had to placed at Chateau Raynier.  We have a very forestry type sim, and it fit just great in the spacious back yard area.  There are three options for the water, which I really thought was a nice consideration to the buyer.

What Next has tons and I do mean tons of beach and summer fun items.  From the beach towels and parasols to adorable cafe sets, we are really spoiled in our recreational areas with these funtastic creations!  The Garden Cafe Table & Chairs are for the RFL Home & Garden Expo –  7 sets will be exclusive to the Expo while it’s open. The blue and green versions are 100% donation items for RFL.   You can get all the information on RFL Home & Garden Expo at the official blog.

I hope your week is going well and that you get some time for fun in the sun to splash it up!

Take My Hand

Spring is blossoming rather beautiful, the birds are chirping, the bees buzzing and a sense of newness has filled the air.  Over at FATEwear, this newness keeps abounding and we gents are surely thankful!  Damien Fate has just released the Spring line part 2, containing fresh textured shirts, shorts and light pants for our Springtime to burst into color.  You can see the entire line on the official blog.

The lovely Springy pose is from Exposeur and available for Pose Fair 2013.  It was perfect for a little time with Mrs. Raynier which has been admittedly scarce with our busy schedules.  Treasure even the smallest moments, they are worth every second!

Pose Fair 2013 – What Next

I have been covering Pose Fair 2013 over at Hottie Cooterati this week, but wanted to share the great bicycle from What Next here on my personal blog.

Today was one of those days where everything piled up on me from worries to my illness, and the most stressful Gabriella being in hospital in pain after a procedure she had to have this week.  I needed to get away, to clear my head and try to recoup my energies so I can continue to be productive and supportive.

The Kensington Bicycle Pose Prop from What Next was perfect for me to get away in my virtual world where I am more limited in my real life to take off and clear my head.  This is why I love poses and props, the creations in SecondLife that we can not have or use in our real life, come to us in our virtual life to enhance in my opinion, both worlds.

I had fun with the bicycle, recalling days of my youth riding my bike across the sunset desert tapestry of Santa Fe, New Mexico and later back in the swamp lands of Covington, Louisiana.   Where will your poses and photographs take you?

Be sure to check out the Hottie Cooterati blog for the slurl to Pose Fair 2013, opening tomorrow, March 29th!

What Next

I adventured on the LEA7 sim aka the Machinima Open Studio Project by Chic Aeon.  There I was greeted most warmly by another photographer Roman Godde, thanks for saying hello Roman!  It was a fun exploration of the sim and perfect for my clearing the mind adventure.  I do hope you will venture there as well, and share what you find in the official MOSP flickr group.
