MadPea Summer Hunt 2018 Promo

IT’S THAT TIME AGAIN! The MadPea Summer Hunt is always my favorite hunt because I just love everything summer brings: fun in the sun, refreshing swims in the water, popping tropical color all around, and a reason to show more skin 😉 MadPea Summer Hunt has some amazing prizes this time around to hunt for – here is just a taste!

If you aren’t hunting for sea shells, then you are missing out! MadPea’s Summer Hunt runs from June 13th to June 27th, and the hunt is a dynamic experience where all seashell hunters hunt at different sims on a daily basis. Shells are constantly appearing and disappearing, giving hunters plenty of opportunity to rake in those points for prize redemption. Also, there are instant prizes that can be found in oysters, making the hunt a lot more enjoyable with these surprise treats.

To join the hunt, buy the MadPea Summer Hunt HUD for $L100. For more information about the hunt, check out the website here and to scope out all the unlocked prizes thus far, click here. I’ll be covering the Summer Hunt a lot more in detail in a later post.

Beautiful day for a wedding …

May 20th 2018 is approaching really fast, Caleb and I have been … semi busy with planning and thinking of the wedding (ok not really).  Not that we aren’t excited about the wedding that is coming up but more that we are enjoying each others company more.  But we have finally taken a moment to just put our minds to it and just start to decorate.  I started off with Bridezilla intentions of having a blue and silver wedding because those are my favorite colors … and well that went south really fast because the more I thought about it, the more I realized I really don’t want to tie myself to two colors.  I want a variety of things happening at my wedding.  One thing is for sure though, I wanted a beachy wedding.  For sure that is something myself and Caleb really agree’d on because we both have this insane love for the beach.  So we set up a beachy island (when I say set up, we enlisted our decorating daughter to do so!) and poof we had a gorgeous outdoor space for our event!

ALOT of my decor is from Moss & Mink, which these items were part of the Arcade.  I worked really hard playing that machine to get everything I wanted.  Now she is a generous designer that will allow you to trade a full set of Trans for a full set of Copy.  Which was perfect for my needs.  We need lots of little cakes to set out at each of the tables for all to enjoy.  The aesthetic of it all was to be pleasing and yummy.  While we do have the longer buffet table to hold all the big goodies like our wedding cake, which again was perfect from her set.  I see it as one stop shopping to get the items I need for the wedding.  Now because this was an arcade item, there is a machine at the store where you can go up and see the demo and then play the machine to get all the goodies for yourself.  There are over 22 items to win, some of them are more for the color variations like the chairs, tables, and balloons.  The rest of the food goodies are all the same choice, then you have the two rares, the big cake and the conservatory.  All of which the items are very cute and fun to decorate with.

So if you are like me and are in need of some very sweet wedding items, or you are wanting party items for other special occasions, I would suggest that you cater to the girly girl in you and have your fun playing this machine, even Caleb is manly enough to have these at his wedding ♥  Make sure to check out the other amazing things she has in her store, if you are a cute frilly type of person this store is definitely for you!

Whatchu Eating Livvy?

Hello! I guess everyone has a routine.  Mine is getting up and starting my day in the best of ways.  Most people eat Breakfast, whelp that is not for me! I am a brunch like girl, I am not big on eating in the morning.  So I use my morning to get ready, looking pretty for my future husband ♥ I do that by dressing up in the prettiest of dresses like this one for instance! Just Because has come out with another fabulous dress.  I was completely inspired by the pastel pallet that was in the pack.  The fat pack comes with all the colors and I just couldn’t resist the color choices, so full of spring and away from that pesky winter weather.  I just couldn’t resist it!  And golly look at the details, I mean that is one of the reasons I was really wanting this dress.  It shadows in all the right places and in particular windlights its extremely highlighted in the best ways.

Next I was inspired by the new hair that Exile released.  I went with my normal blond choice by Kavar, I love all the colors don’t get me wrong, but I believe that his blonds are one of the best on the grid.  What I really enjoy is the style of this hair, its long and swept all over the it looks slightly wind blown but yet still well kept.  Something I really appreciate with this hair color choice is the roots.  I always find that I float towards the rooted versions of the hairs.  It gives that bit of pop that one needs, and still keeping natural.  You can find this beauty in the main store!

Then you have my Fabulous necklace here! This is another amazing Cae creation.  And as I tend to mention its one of my favorite styles by her.  Layers.  I love when her items have layers.  It gives that dimensional look that you can pick and choose what you wear.  You can hide layers and change the colors of each of them, from the metals to the jewels.  Its one of those items you don’t want to go without.  Personally I always have a necklace on and 9 out of 10 its ones of hers haha.  Bias maybe … but its just my opinion and how I feel about the brand.  This item can be found at Cosmopolitan this round.  So make sure you head on over and pick it up.  It’s an amazing deal! ♥

Now my post is called Whatchu eating Livvy? That is because I start my day getting pretty and after getting all pretty, I work up an appetite. What better than starting your day with some toast, egg, and avocado … with a side of grapefruit, and a little tea, and a big ol cup of cappuccino.  This is a healthy way to eat and apparently avocado is all the rage these days and its very nice paired with toast and eggs.  How do you all like your eggs?  I really like mine when I take a big bite and the yolk breaks and runs.  I find that most people don’t like their eggs that way.  That is okay because its more for me! And to keep my pep up I enjoy a very nice warm cup of tea … then I NEED MY CAFFEINE! You wanna decorate your table like mine?  Well I got so many goodies from Apple Fall and Dustbunny.  I am completely taken by the fact that the items look so realistic.  That is one of the biggest qualities that you find with these two brands, I am always amazed at how real items look in my home, I mean as real as the SL limits allow them to be.  It makes my kitchen all that more enjoyable to be in!

Merry Christmas From Us!

MERRY CHRISTMAS!!

A really quick post for you all this beautiful morning. Hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday so far, and plenty more celebration ahead! Wanted to share this amazing MadPea Christmas Hunt prize that would be perfect if you have little ones to celebrate Christmas with. Our daughter ran down Christmas morning from her room, jumped on our bed to wake us up and made a mad dash to the Christmas tree to find this amazing and official certificate from Santa Claus. The look on her face was priceless, and she was beaming from ear to ear. We loved it so much that we had to take a family picture to celebrate what an amazing child Nessy has been the whole year!

Christmas Morning | Mine $ Yours

Featured: MadPea Christmas Certificate of Good Behavior by MadPea (MadPea Christmas Hunt Prize)

Tip: Scaling down through stretching will not work if you want the certificate to go smaller (I think it is the name plate that has been sized down to the minimum SL dimension already on one of its sides so you cannot go beyond that when linked together with something else. Instead, use a resizer script that ignores minimum dimension restraint that will conveniently help you resize the item as a whole.)

Also wanted to share a little memory a week before Christmas when we visited Santa on our land. He set up a little cottage area for him to stay at when Nessy went to visit him. She had received his letter, as Santa wanted to check up on Nessy before Christmas just to make sure she was still on track for staying on the Nice List. Merry Christmas, everyone! Stay warm and enjoy the company of loved ones around you this beautiful holiday season <3 From us to you, Merry Christmas.
