Spend a little quiet time with someone special in this rowboat watching the Aurora Borealis dancing in the sky, as you sip wine in the candle light at sunset.

 The Retreat

Catch up with an old friend for a long talk in the rose covered trellis next to the lilly pond in the moonlight. 

The Retreat

Perhaps you and a few friends would like to get together to hang out around the fire as you wind down, discussing the days events.

Imagine you have a old friend that moved away, and before you knew it the years had passed and you have now received an invitation to their wedding. You prepare to make the big trip that you had not managed to in years. Then days before the weddings you get a mysterious message from your friend that simply says "Please don't come". Unable to get your friend to respond, and having made all the arrangements for the trip, you set off confused and concerned to find out what happened to your friend. Arriving in Boundary Town your adventure begins.

Bloody Valentine

The Bloody Valentine Horror Show 2012  is an interactive journey where you pick up a hud and navigate your way though Boundary Town collecting pages of your friends diary to make some sense of the sudden change in plans. As you collect the pages some interesting things will happen. After collecting all the pages you finally make it to the church but the adventure is not over yet.

From there you are taken away to "That Side". That Side is the same as Boundary Town but something is a little different... You go through the streets , helping the residents and your friend hoping for a happy ending. For those that take the journey and complete it there are some gifts at the end. One for men and one for women.

Bloody Valentine

This event runs through March 10th and also features a great Bloody Valentines Market with lots of great goodies from some awesome SL designers, valentines themed, with great couples items as well. To see more about the market ... check here.

Bloody Valentine

This was a lot of fun and really neat, there are surprises and twist around every corner, so get out there and don't miss out on this unique experience.

Feast is in a group of sims that boast vast vegetative beauty. This not to be missed sim, features some of the best flowers and plants in sl to enjoy in many settings. 

Fields of fragrant wildflowers, cool bridges and nice water features though out the whole sim.

The fertile landscape is dotted with some charming cottages and greenhouses. 

Even a great fantasy area with rainbows, fairy ring and magnificent glass orbs. 

Have a seat and spend some time with good company watching the waves as the sun sets. Rose gardens, tree houses and even a nice deck overlooking a great view of the ocean. Too many fantastic things to list and show here. As many times as I have been here I discover something new anytime I come here. I hope you will check it out and enjoy it as much as I do.

The Zarra Sim is home to Zaara Couture as well as some other great shops, but besides that it is beautifully done.

When you tp in by the front entrance of the Zaara Couture store you are welcomed by what I take to be a banyan tree, decorated with streamers. The banyan is the national tree of India, with strong and deep roots it serves to symbolize unity. It is said that married Hindu women will often worship this tree in hopes to lead a long and happy married life.

If you walk around a little you will come upon this street, that includes a barber shop and great open air market. Watch out for our bovine friends.Cows are very sacred to the Hindu and you will see them roaming about freely in some cities.

Another stunning work and my personal favorite feature of this sim is the Temple to Ganesh. Considered to be a God of prosperity, many look to him as a protector and remover of obstacles.

You will need to remove your shoes before entering. Once inside you will see all the wonderful offerings of sweets and incense. Everything he holds symbolizes something, such as the axe in his upper right hand. It  symbolizes a dettachment of desires that can be obstructive,and also serves as a prod to push men to a path of righteousness and truth. You can read more about Ganesh here.

After spending some time exploring this exotic sim, swing by the Nasha Lounge right across from Zaara Couture. Nasha in Hindi means intoxication. This is the perfect place to sit and talk with friends or dance the night away to some Bollywood tunes. It is also available for parties and other functions.

I hope that you will take time to explore this magnificent sim

Cup of Goodness

One night a dear friend of mine, Suzie, took me to this cool little coffee shop. I didn't know then what a jewel she had found and how much time I would come to spend here.

Elisabeth Fairy Queen of Cup of Goodness

Cup of Goodness coffee house is the creation of Elisabeth Beurling, it has been in operation since 2006. After a brief closing in 2009 it was reopened in Sept 2010 to the delight of many. It is housed in this great building that looks like a refurbished mill or something. The building was originally custom made to house posters and artwork that Lis, used to sale. As a matter of fact much of the art and furnishings there are still for sale.

Cup of Goodness Parlor

The building itself has 3 floors inside with many great places to curl up and clear your mind, have a deep meaningful talk or engage in great conversation with Lis and the other regulars here. The whole place is so warm and welcoming you will meet no strangers here. Prepare yourself for spontaneous dancing and merriment.

Cup of Goodness Patio

Besides the building there are some great outdoor spaces too. Step out the back onto the patio, maybe join everyone in some dancing or grab a seat for some quiet outdoor time looking over the water. Off to the side is also an area with a bonfire and more great places to chill out.

Cup of Goodness Bonfire

Cross the covered bridge that leads to the Annex, a venue here set up for live events. Live music, poetry readings and great discussions about food, wine and more. If you would like more info on events join the Cup of Goodness group in world or swing by and pick up info in the coffee house or annex.

The annex at Cup of Goodness

Lis said that this coffee house was her favorite thing about second life because of the people that come there and the world view they give on current events. I can see why and now it is one of my favorite things about second life too. When you need some time to relax and enjoy some great conversation, head on over to the Cup of Goodness and pull up a seat. Let them know Margaux sent you. See you there sometime!!
