Genre : Arabia ~ Bedouin Tent!

Anke Hatchuk


Genre is a favorite event of mine, even if we sometimes struggle with what to come up with... It's always something unique that we may not have otherwise done!

The Arabia round is no exception, I am super thrilled about what was made - by request of the event designer as an idea for the stalls, we made an interpretation of the classic cultural Bedouin Tent!

This 3 land impact tent is amazingly versatile with 18 unique texture options, 4 metals & functioning lanterns as well as being copy/mod & of course, 100% original mesh!

For an extra level of versatility, you can remove the rug/center divider & even the lanterns by setting them to 100% transparent for a totally different look!

... The best part is that for the duration of this event, the item is only 100L$!

When it goes to the main store, you can be sure it will be going up... so do be sure to stop by Genre before this round ends~

Hello to all of you who is waking up to this Sunday morning. :) It’s Monday morning here now. 2am. I’m having a bout of insomnia, it usually worsen when RL gets hectic and my brain goes into overdrive.

I hate that I cannot ‘switch off’ so whenever my head gets too noisy and stresses me out, I log in for a bit and enjoy a bit of solitude, routing my noisy head into thinking about decorating instead.

It’s Father’s Day this Sunday, so I’m wishing all the Fathers reading this a lovely day ahead full of bacon and egg…oh, and beer. <3

I’ll just leave you with one of my favourite poem, one I feel is the most fatherly poem out there.

“If”, Rudyard Kipling.

If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
But make allowance for their doubting too;
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or being lied about, don’t deal in lies,
Or being hated, don’t give way to hating,
And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise:
If you can dream—and not make dreams your master;
If you can think—and not make thoughts your aim;
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same;
If you can bear to hear the truth you’ve spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and build ’em up with worn-out tools:
If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
And never breathe a word about your loss;
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: “Hold on!”

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
Or walk with Kings—nor lose the common touch,
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,
If all men count with you, but none too much;
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it,
And—which is more—you’ll be a Man, my son!

I love a neutral palette for decorating it’s so easy to live with and do. To keep it from being boarding make sure to use lots of textures and add a pop of color using rugs, throws and pillows. There’s some really nice things out for FLF, Collabor88, and The Arcade that would work perfect in a neutral setting.

Sweet summer dreams are made of these, who am I to disagree. :D

Hello, everyone from the other side of the world! How are you enjoying summer? While you are lounging around in your tighties whities, do you think of us poor souls on the other side of the world freezing in our woolen jacket?

It is summer everywhere in SL, beach themed events are flocking the grid. So what’s a girl to do but toughen up and decorate summer scenes while she shivers under her blanket?

So, let me ramble a bit about the items here.

If you don’t have a beach land but still want to create a beach, try the various beach kits available from Studio Skye. The one I’m using here is the Beach Dune kit. I literally made a beachy area in a few minutes. No messing with terraforming, simple rezz and go. There are also several beach signs with the kit and I’m using the ‘Welcome to the beach’ one.

The Changing Tent from Turnip’s Homes is charming to add an extra bit of realism to your pixel beach. Oh come on, you know you need it on your beach, how else would a shy person change from fabulous mesh clothing to mesh bikinis, right? Why do I love Turnip’s stuff? Two words: texture change.

There is nothing more attractive and linden draining than the fact that you get options when buying one item. The different themed tents are sold separately but with each theme are several types of tent (open, closed, half-open) + textures ranging from clean to dirty, like so:

Change Tent Texture Change

Texture change options for each Changing Tent themes by Turnip’s Homes.
Different themes are sold separately.
Check out the demo tents here.

It’s not just a decorative tent, there are animations included in it for singles and couples. You can test it at Turnip’s Homes demo area for the tents here.

Been to C88 yet? If you’re into beach theme, then C88 this round will have you squealing. If you are into beach theme, fancy yourself a writer AND have a penchant for Hemingway, then maybe you will like this ingenius Hemingway Desk from Standby Inc.

A desk from repurposed boat? Yes please!

Someone need to build this desk for me in RL…
The maps are texture change.

It’s hard to ramble about summer when I am not experiencing summer…so I guess I’ll leave you guys with some summer facts you possibly don’t care about? Good enough, right?

  1. Mosquitoes have been around for 30 million years. How scientists can figure this out without mosquitoes having exoskeletons and whatnots is beyond me, but that is the beauty of science. Why am I talking about mosquitoes? Er…cos summer = mosquitoes…right? RIGHT?
  2. Eiffel Tower can grow by more than 6 inches in summer due to the expansion of the iron on hot days. Uh oh.
  3. Want to know how hot is it outside tonight? Count cricket’s chirps for 15 seconds and then add 37 = that is the approximate outdoor temperature in Fanhrenheit. This is my favourite factoid!

I could fill up this post with these facts, but you might as well read it yourself here. :D

I need to jump back under the thick blanket now and dream of summer dreams….

Pointbreak

Three legged race small

The shopping list & ramblings

 

Ramblings

You have no reason to not look cool at the beach. The ‘pointbreak set’ will go a long way this summer and it comes in a male and female set. The female version is released by Heathenesque and the male version by 7mad;Ravens. The shirt comes with a hud and gives you a bunch of different options in color and prints.Only available at the Thriftshop!

The sand tattoos are another new release. This picture isn’t the best to show them off (I am that good of a blogger!) but it’s pretty neat that you can have a full body sand tattoo, only legs or only torso or have your hands sandy or your feet. Yes, they come with appliers. It just gives a beach outfit that extra. The devil is in the details as they say.

As I have said a few times before I found this store a while back and I do love the style. So if I keep droning on about it, then well bare with me and forgive me. For me women’s fashion is not only about epic dresses and prim and proper stuff. It’s about a touch of grunge and raw and used and worn without looking like a tramp. And in all honesty I find myself going more and more off the beaten path to find that stuff. And yes this is me holding back so I’ll quit droning on now and let you be.

Happy shopping
