Visiting Flux sur Mer

A couple of days ago I went to visit Flux sur Mer, a beautiful sim that is supposed to be reminiscent of the south of France. Many people have visited since the sim opened in the beginning of June, for I have seen many photos of the place on Flickr and on blogs. I even saw some people I recognized while I was visiting myself. Ziki Questi has some more information about the sim – you can read about it here.

The sim definitely has an old country feel to it, especially when you use the region lighting. While exploring, I found myself walking off the “path” to explore secluded areas of the sim.

As I walked around the sim, I found items I was able to take such as riding boots, baby’s breath, and a chair. At one point, I found a notecard that said:

Welcome to Flux Sur Mer!
We are so happy to have you here tonight.  Please TP to all the LM’s
below and collect the exclusive Flux Sur Mer souvenirs :)

There are five landmarks, so I guess I will have to go back and explore the rest of the sim to get what I missed.

Cigarettes before dinner

I used to eat a decent amount of frozen meals at one time. I especially loved the chicken and the pasta meals. At one point I started to feel ill whenever I ate anything that had cheese in it, so I had to stop.

Frozen meals, or TV dinners as they once were called, have been around since the 1950’s. Since watching television had gotten to be the thing to do, especially around dinner time, the TV meal was created so that families could eat together and still watch their favorite TV show.

Free bird at the Multicultural Menu event has managed to capture a moment in time with their themed decor to showcase their TV dinners. When you play the gacha machine, you can play to win a Salisbury steak dinner, fried chicken dinner, and turkey & gravy dinner.

Mmm…which one is your favorite?

21 Shoe Event – June Round (48 hours!)

Hey everyone – welcome to the June round of 21 Shoe! This round is special because this is the first time that these deals will be available for 48 hours! So if you overslept or couldn’t make it on today, you still have another day ^^

This month’s group gift is from Klepsydra- exclusive stockings in system layer and several mesh body appliers.

 

Klepsydra  stockings - 21 Shoe June group gift

We have some new shoe designers on board, and some designers were not able to make it for this round. A couple of suggestions to the new designers:

1. Always have demos for your shoes. You are promoting your shoes to a broader audience who may not be familiar to your brand.

2. Labeling your ad to reflect which mesh bodies or feet can wear your items is a major plus. Sometimes people want to be able to tell at a glance whether a shoe suits them or not before trying on a demo.

Most of the shoes are “Exclusive” this round. This means they will only be available for this event, which ends in less than 48 hours. Look here and go to the stores now! ^^

Saying Goodbye to L’Arc en Ciel

I had first heard of L’Arc en Ciel when someone showed me the following photo on Flickr:

Wait…what? How did I miss out on something so significant, that many people seem to know a lot about? I read the comments on why the sim was closing and it made me feel sad and annoyed. Too many people take advantage of the fact that someone (or some people) allow people to visit their personal space. I can say from experience that many people do not read written instructions, but when they are told it’s in the rules, they generally apologize for not reading.So, I decided to make a trip over to L’Arc en Ciel before it ceased to exist.

Kids need to make money too

When I was a kid, I used to love playing with pretend food. I liked the little kitchens where you could pretend to cook food. It always fascinated me that kids could set up lemonade stands and sell cheap lemonade to their neighbors. When I saw what Little Llama had set up for the Multicultural Menu event, it brought back some of those memories.
