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!

Happy Holidays From The Raynier’s!

Happy Holidays

Happy Holidays

This holiday season has been filled with tremendous amounts of beautiful and fun festive items for all of us to enhance our virtual worlds with.  By far my favorite is this brilliant collaboration from PILOT creator Kaz Nayar and EXPOSEUR creator Rubystarlight Writer!

Full of couples poses, including a girl/girl and a group, it is like a holiday party in this exquisite original mesh snow globe.  Picture perfect for your holiday greeting cards, you can grab your own at either PILOT’s main-store or EXPOSEUR’s main-store, how convenient!

I stole Mrs. Raynier away from studying for a little bit to do our Christmas photos.  We did not have time to show you the rest of the poses, the girlfriends and group, but maybe if we get a chance tomorrow we can do a part deux of this beautiful creation.

From our entwined hearts to yours, we wish each and every one of you the most joyous, resplendent  wonder filled holiday season and the best possible New Year to come.  May it bring you every dream in your heart, love, happiness and a wealth of prosperity, but most of all, great health to enjoy it all!

I Love You More Today Than Yesterday Part 2.

One of the great things about SecondLife is that you can have a date that you put on pause.  Sometimes, there is just a need to halt what you are doing, and with SecondLife you can easily resume your plans where real life makes that a bit harder.  Nothing beats real life, but hands down time spent together, no matter where it is, that’s priceless.

Gabriella and I resumed our Saturday date, finally getting into the ARCADE Gacha Event!  Right away when we arrived, we had a plan.  Start on the right and go clockwise back to the entrance.

Yay! We BOTH Made It In At The Same Time!

Right away Mrs. Raynier was lucky!  She often will hear me groan and pout about a gacha that I just can not seem to get the RARE for, and after 268 tries I finally give up.  Well Gabby will waltz up to the machine and on her first try get the RARE! And I thought my name meant luck.  It is a win win because she always gives me the prize and a kiss, it doesn’t get any better than that.

I really really want the rare, Pookie! But I tried 38490821 times already and it won’t give it up!

After emptying our pockets and her bra of our monies, we headed outside to enjoy the ocean air and cool afternoon.  We found this great old school photo booth and of course had to take pictures.

Say Camembert!

Overall it was a great time together which we both needed.  Life gets busy, but the need to be close and spend time with our loved ones doesn’t always understand that.  Do your best to make time to spend together, with a friend, your significant other, family, even if its just a half hour, it’ll do you good!

Preparing For Autumn

Autumn is my favorite time of year.  The leaves turn glorious colors, whisper their journey from the branches of trees and the cool breeze is a welcomed reprieve from the Summer heat.  Fashion wise, Autumn brings us layers and Earth tones, light jackets and a need for hats.

Mrs. Raynier and I had a nice afternoon enjoying Autumns approach.  The fun poses and props are from the lush creative mind of Adorkable Peapod.  I love Adorkable poses, they always make you smile, have a naturalness to them and invoke imagery that leads to fun photos like the one below.  You can snatch up these amazing poses at the upcoming ARCADE Gacha Event opening to the public on September 15th!

The piggy banks are from Sway’s and I just have to say these are absolutely adorable!  I had a piggy bank as a kid, though mine was from Spain, made of clay with intricate flora painted upon it.  I recall the day it cracked and how devistated I was for it had been handed down in my family on mon Mama’s side, brought from Galicia, Spain where my family came from to the United States.  Mon Papa was a patient man, and while mon Mama and I were in emotional tears over the broken piggy bank, he quietly mended it back together with clear ceramic glue.  You could not tell that it had the crack unless you looked very closely and he explained that, “It is not ruined son, it just has a war wound now to show the adventure it went on from the top shelf to the floor.”  My piggy bank had been saved by mon Papa’s mending hands and set back where it resided in my room until I was an adult.  Funny how little things bring about memories.  Thank you Sway, for creating a bit of fun to remind us of our youth and the things we grow out of.  I’ll be sure to keep a piggy bank in the house to not forget those great times.

The Mens Dept-August: I Promise You I Will

August 2012 has been the busiest month of my SecondLife!  How many events do we have going right now and more to come when the 8th rolls around.  The Mens Dept August collection is just superb.  This is still my favorite event as it offers a little bit of everything for the men yet versatile enough to have many unisex items for everyone to enjoy.

One creator that I discovered about a month ago has really impressed me from day one.  Tegan Sara of floorplan creates the type of home decor and furnishings that I just adore.  From fun colored dressers to catchy little wall message boards, I have had a great time decorating with floorplan items.  You can get an amazing steal of a deal at The Mens Dept this month from floorplan, and Tegan just added an additional color set.

I am very fond of Cracked Mirror’s mens line.  I made sure my shy genes were stuck in a vault so I could rave to her about the shirt and shorts she has out at The Mens Dept this round.  I love a short sleeved shirt, and one made of mesh, with proper rolled sleeves that do not bulk into your body or leave gaps of space, and a tie to boot, yeah Cracked you rocked this shirt hard lady and I’m gonna wear them till they have holes in them!

I coupled my ensemble with man items from FaMESHed another amazing event that I never miss.  I hope you are enjoying the amazing packed full of events month of August, stay tuned for more items from the grids fabulous event organizers and creators.

Please note that The Mens Dept moved next to the space they had in July.  You can follow my links to the new location!

Vintage Fair Preview-Gizza & SSP: Painting The Town Red

After a great anniversary, Mrs. Raynier & I are tired!  She kept me up all night! As you can see, we know how to have a grand night on the town.  Who said getting married made you boring has not spent time with us!

I have more wonderful Vintage Fair 2012 previews for you today.

This extraordinary ensemble by Gizza was a must have for my closet.  I love bow-ties, I love hats and I love to look dapper!  You can’t go wrong with classic black and white, for a myriad of occasions so I urge you fellas to snatch this one up, you’ll get quite a bit of use out of it.

We enjoyed a private evening in this highly detailed prop room from Sparrowtree Studios.  This has the old French Quarter, New Orleans  feel to it, an exclusive club with a VIP room meant for all the pleasures of the night you can dream of.  The next opportunity you get to paint the town, snatch it up and make it a wild one!
