News From the Arcade

Hello Everyone,

I hope your weekend is off to a great start. Here in the northeast temperatures are climbing and will be hitting 90 the next couple of days. I was enjoying the upper 60’s and 70’s but knew it would come end at some point.

Luckily in SL the weather is always perfect for whatever you want to do. ūüėČ Today I have some previews for HEXtraordinary and The Plastik at The Arcade gacha event.

The Plastik is participating in The Arcade for the first time every and they have released Vindeluna. They describe it as “a world of curious rustic curios and mysterious adornments, items handcrafted from the finest and rarest materials our world has to offer! Decorate your humble abode or sprawling estate with these eccentric and awe-inspiring relics and add a little charm to your home. Illuminate your dwelling with a wide variety of lamps, lanterns and candles. Spruce up the place with a planter or two and take in the exquisite scents they have to offer paired with some incense. Have some tea, tell time or look to the stars¬†and if you‚Äôre lucky you might just catch one!” The set also includes¬†five extremely rare pieces that are absolutely gorgeous; The¬†Mahogany Hutch,¬†Geolab Table & Plant, Rika Floor Lamp, Andras Table & Chairs and¬†Phoe Shelves will fit in any home perfectly. There is also a lovely glass encased butterfly stand reward when you play the Vindeluna twenty five times. I put quite a few of the prizes in my post but it is not all of them but if you visit The Plastik’s blog or Flickr you can see the gacha key will all the prizes.

HEXtraordinary has this wonderful¬†Betta Aquariums at The Arcade and the fish are a little cranky. You should definitely play this machine so you can take these guys home and give them a happy place. ūüėČ It might make them less cranky. There is three different styles of aquarium, brass, tall and bowl, plus one rare and nine common animated bettas that can link to the tank and swim in them or wander anywhere. There is also three animated mystery snails to rez or wear. You can resize your¬†aquarium, fish and snails and the fish and snails come in different colors. I includes several of the fish and snails in my photos but to see all of them please visit¬†Corwin Lacourte’s, the owner of¬†HEXtraordinary, Flickr.

The Arcade is open til the end of the month and you should be able to get in with no problem now.

%Percent Furniture & Lighting @ Fantasy Faire

 

Hello everyone and Happy Friday \o/

I am back with some more news from Fantasy Faire! One of the great things about Fantasy Faire is it has a little bit of everything; skins, hair, clothes, jewelry, weapon, buildings, furniture, plus alot more. You can spend hours on the sims checking everything out plus looking at the great sim designs.

In this post I wanted to show you the fantastic set from %Percent Furniture & Lighting that I thought was perfect for the foyer in my new house. I am also showing you the dragon bookends that are part of the Fantasy Faire hunt. The chair and candelabra are sold individually, as well as together and each set is on sale at a discount. The chair has 14 animations each for male and female singles, and 19 for couples. The chair has 11 different textures and the candelabra has 12 options for the texture. It really is a fantastic set. If you like dragons or are looking for a great piece of furniture you definitely want to check this out.

I have another post from Fantasy Faire coming soon.

Thank you for stopping by ‚̧

My Book Meme

1. Are you a bookworm? Not as much as I use to be. I do read alot but there is so many different sources to read that I find myself reading more of those than actual books.

2. Which do you prefer: hardcover, paperback or electronic? I love the feel of a good book in my hands but I am slowly switching over to electronic books because it is easier on my hands. ūüė¶

3. Which book is your favorite? I will also have to go with Price & Prejudice by Jane Austen. The first time I read it I totally fell in love with the story and characters. I actually have a copy on my desk and on my tablet so its basically always with me. lol

4. Which children’s book is your favorite? Goodnight Moon by Margaret Wise Brown

5. What’s the last book you’ve read? Life After Death by Damien Echols

6. Name your top five favorite writers: Jane Austen, Stephen King, George R. R. Martin (I love Game of Thrones), J. R. R Tolkien & Elizabeth Chadwick

7. Name a book that had a strong impact on you: The Diary of Anne Frank by Anne Frank

8. Favorite & least favorite book genres? Least Favorite?? I enjoy reading about so many different things that I don’t think I have a least favorite. My Favorites…I love Fantasy & Sci Fi, Historical fiction and poetry.

9. Favorite & least favorite book-to-movie adaptions? I generally do not like most book to movie adaptions because they leave so much out and alter the characters or the story for dramatic purposes or time.  My favorite would probably be Lord of the Rings. To me they really captured the story and characters.

10. Have you ever bought a book based on the cover alone? Never! It has to be a good story for be to buy it. I always read the back of the cover and skim the first chapter to see if I like the writing style and the beginning of the story.

11. Where do you usually buy your books? Usually at my local Barnes & Noble or online. If I am traveling and I see a bookstore I usually stop in to check out their selection.

12. Do you go to the library? Not as much as I use to. ūüė¶

13. How many books do you own? I am not even sure. I have books tucked in ever spot there is room plus a bucket of books I have no room for. I probably have have close to 55 or more. I know some I should donate but I look at them and think what if I want to read it again. My favorites are like parting with a old friend who was there for me when I needed it. Probably kind of silly.

14. If you were to write a book about Second Life, which topic would you focus on? hahahaha It would either be The Second Life Survival Guide or 15 steps to live your SL drama Free.
