Holiday





I made Ty come on holiday with me today.  We both had items to show so we decided to team up.  I told Ty we are like Batman and Robin and then we spent half an hour arguing about which one of us was Batman and which was Robin.  We agreed to disagree...but you all know I am Batman, right?

Anyhoooo, here is what we came up with...

New Destinations August Week 1





Here are the latest additions to the Destinations Pages on the right-hand side of this blog.  You will see them all listed under the PAGES heading.

The links below are to the appropriate pages so just scroll down until you find the photo and the URL will be there.  The new ones are at the top of the page so you won't have to look too hard.

Hesperia Templemore - I didn't quite know what category to put this under but since it is set in a town I decided to go with that.  This sim is made to showcase music, but there is so much more to it than that.  Explore and enjoy.


Vespertine - Vespertine has its mainstore here and the sim is set out for wandering and enjoying.  There are all sorts of little surprises along the way so make sure you explore all the nooks and crannies.


Fashiowl Street - This cute little town setting is somewhere I would love to live.  It reminds me a little of Stars Hollow from The Gilmore Girls.  Lovely.


Seedyville - When you teleport in you think, "Oh, what a nice little town!", but this town definitely has a slightly 'seedy' side to it as you will find out.  Every town has its secrets.


Deer Island- This sim is the home of some fab stores and is also a great place to wander and find little spots like the one in the photo.  Also has beaches, a forest and little woodland animals everywhere.


Tierra de Fuego - This airport in the middle of a desert gives you loads of options for photos.  Plenty of hangars, sheds, machinery and even an aeroplane that is waiting for some aircraft engineers.


[WOS] Missing Mile Dark Rural Community - I have loved this sim for a while and if you are a regular reader of my blog (and I love both of you!) you will have seen some photos I have taken on the rail tracks here.  I also love the trailer park, polluted swamp and run-down hotel with possible dead body.

New Additions to the Destinations Pages





I was chatting to some people who have been checking out the Destinations Pages.  I am soooo glad people are finding them useful because I am loving tripping about finding new spots for you to enjoy.

Anyway, readers have suggested I let you all know when I find new places so here are the updates for this week.  I will give you the link to the page they are on where you will find the URLs.  Hope this works.

So you know, I have been putting the new ones at the top of each page.

VARIETY IN ONE PLACE:

Intro - Intro is a cute little sim dotted with some funky stores that are worth a visit while you are there.  Lots of little spots for photos including a playground, rowboat, orchard and vegetable gardens, and a beach.


Mimikri - This is the home of the famous Mimikri store, but the sim also hides great spots for photo ops.  You can find the ruins in this shot, a mini port/boat area, lovely grasslands plus other little surprises.


Collins Land - The owners of this sim have invited you onto their little slice of paradise so make sure you respect the land and privacy!  A road winds it way up the hill where you will find photo nooks along the way.  There are also two outlying islands; a rainy one and a lookout with gazebo.


{Imeka} - This is a lovely island with gorgeous beaches, fab structures and little spots scattered about that are just right for photo taking.


Woodsy - Soft and green with of hidden spots in the woods to grab a photo or three.  There is even a rainy area for getting the ambiance you need. (Sanni)




La Botanique - Wasn't quite sure which category to put this in, but figured it was like a little sky island so this is where it is.  Little rainy area with lovely places to dine and enjoy the view.


Pigeon Island - A bit of a mix on this lovely island with loads of spots for photos.  I love all the docks around the island that make taking those sea shots simple.


Garlic Breath at Melee Island - This Greek themed isle will delight you in so many ways.  There are plenty of places to get that perfect coastal shot whether up by the houses or on one of the many beaches.


BEACHES:

Rowne - This is not your run-of-the-mill beach.  It has vast grasslands, a lighthouse and these great power poles.  It surrounds the Rowne store and is lovely for those lonely-looking shots.


RUN-DOWN:

Meaningless City - This is attached to Pigeon Island and you can access the city through a door at the landing zone.  This little area is overrun with weeds and in need of a good spruce up, but is perfect for photos that need a bit of a grungy look.


TEMPORARY:

I added this page to showcase areas that are amazing and are only set up for events or a limited time.  Make sure you let me know if you see any that would fit in this category.


The Dreamers Factory - This event is the first of its kind at Blossom Land and the event designers have made this area look amazing.  It encourages photographers and I love the way you enter the event by taking a nap! Open til August 22nd.


The Seasons Story - This is the summer round and the organisers have given you a beautiful place to shop and enjoy the walk on the Sapphire Skies land.

From the Attic





My Attic @ The Deck is on and there are some cool summer items for your enjoyment.  I showed you the Leri Miles Designs dress the other day and today I have items from Somnia and W.Winx.

The W.Winx pose prop is called Wish You Were Here and is perfect for those beach photos you have been wanting to take.  I am only showing a few of the poses available.  It comes with the sand and the Beach letters.



 This outfit is made up of items from Somnia.  The top is called Kimeyos, the shorts are Bitty Shorts and the shoes are Kimatia.  All come with a colour change hud so you can get them looking just how you want.

My hair is from Tameless and is called Lilly.  This is another of their Hair Fair items and you can change the ties and hair colour with the easy-to-use hud.


These cute nails are also from Somnia at My Attic and are from the Toppled Stars Darks Pack.  There is also a lights pack if you are more of a fan of the lighter tones!
