London Calling

I have always had a love for all things British.  On mon Papa’s side of the family my ancestry comes from Manchester, planting the interest from a young age.  From music to clothing trends, food and of course beer and cider.  One day I hope to visit the magnificent city of London.  In the meantime I will continue to collect my UK and British memorabilia and themed items.  That’s become very easy lately in SecondLife with all our amazing creators designing and bringing us fun Brit themed goodies.

One such favorite of mine is the multi-talented and ever brilliant Wavie Haller.  Valiant & Co. has there styles of shoes at Shoetopia and you are not too late to head over to snatch them up, lag free!  The Union version of the Journey boots are my favorite, sporting a perfectly placed union jack and stomping soles fit for a proper mosh pit.  A must have for your shoe collection, oh and female versions available!

Shoetopia – a veritable shoe heaven, will open its pearly gates to indulge your soles November 15th, 2013.  The sim design indeed is heavenly, a Utopia for shoe lovers.  Spread out in an open layout of two sims, with angelic archways and crystal blue skies, you are among the clouds as you venture through the shoe heaven.

At the heart of the event is SOLES4SOULS, the events charity of choice.  A bit about the charity:

Soles4Souls is a global not-for-profit institution dedicated to fighting the devastating impact and perpetuation of poverty.  The organization advances its anti-poverty mission by collecting new and used shoes and clothes from individuals, schools, faith-based institutions, civic organizations and corporate partners, then distributing those shoes and clothes both via direct donations to people in need and by provisioning qualified micro-enterprise programs designed to create jobs in poor and disadvantaged communities.  Based in Nashville, Tennessee, Soles4Souls is committed to the highest standards of operating and governance, and holds a four-star rating with Charity Navigator.

With the devastating damage in the Philippines and Southeast Asia, each participating designer will be offering up an item that will see 100% of its proceeds go directly to Soles4Souls, which is already hard at work aiding this catastrophic time.

The event is more than just a shopping spree, it is for a cause, and I hope that you will be a part of that.

My shoes are the exclusive item from ADJUNCT.  This highly detailed, exceptional penny loafer comes in three colors and an option for socks.  In addition ADJUNCT creator Josh Latham aka myvegancookbook has created a set of lively colored fun socks for you to add to your closet.

I wore penny loafers all through high school, even put the shiny copper penny in the tongue, so when I saw these I had to have them.  The leather quality is exceptional, just enough shine and a soft feel.  The fit is superb and no adjustments were required, the shoe is fantastic.  Add it to your collection for casual or formal needs.

Heading on over to The Men’s Department, the newest creation from Isla Gealach is a must have.  Cheeky Pea’s Nolan Foosball Table’s are a must have for any recreation room, bar or fun area.  Highly detailed materials enabled mesh, the foosball tables come in two different styles of wood, bare and painted as well as PG and Adult.  The Adult brings a whole new meaning to GOAL!

Also at TMD, MESHWORX has created these spicy pin – up covered Infinity tables and chairs.  Beautifully textured, smooth and minimalist with sexy pin – up girls decorating the surfaces, very unique and without saying a must buy!

Off to Collabor88 you will find the gorgeously spacious Industrial Loft from Barnesworth Anubis.  Barnes never fails to create something spectacular, detailed and unique.  I love the open bay windows that lead to a spacious patio.  The loft is very roomy and was perfect for a recreational room at Chez Raynier.  

FLOORPLAN brings fun to your home decor yet again at Collabor88 with the Eiffel Tower Marquee.  Multi-texture change on touch, beautiful detailing, this was a must have for my place as I am of French decent.  Its rather adorable and I plan to put it in little Raynier’s room when the time comes.

Ring a ding ding, time for doorbells!  Intrigue Company has doorbells for your decor needs this round of Collabor88.  I was a bit stumped at first where to place them, but the fireplace area was just perfect for them to be displayed.  In multiple metals, and three different styles these doorbells have tons of detail packed into them.  Put them at your door or use them in unique ways, they are truly “chiming”!

Additional non-event items can be found in the credits, have a great day!

Oh Oh The Sweetest Thing

It’s time for Candy Fair-you heard me, a fair about sweet treats!  Opening its chocolate fudge cascading doors October 4th thru October 18th, you will surely need a dentist for all the sweet treat cavities you’ll be sporting from the sugary fun.

Items vary from props & poses to decor and even fashion with the candy theme.  Spanning 3 frosty sweet sims, I suggest a large wagon to take home your haul.

You can get a visual treat during the waiting period at the official Candy Fair flicker group.

‘Cause They Say Home Is Where Your Heart Is Set In Stone

‘Cause they say home is where your heart is set in stone
Is where you go when you’re alone
Is where you go to rest your bones
It’s not just where you lay your head
It’s not just where you make your bed
As long as we’re together, does it matter where we go?

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!
