The Bean Evolves


So, The Pixel Bean Coffeehouse has a brand new home.

Our last wonderful home on Sunshine Mist, was home for us for over two solid years and was some of the best memories of The Bean to date. After over two years on the sim, it was time for some changes.  I have, what I considered “downsized” our cafe a bit.  We have indeed moved to our very own sim, a homestead sim (which fills a capacity of 20 people at a time), and we plan to have more intimate gatherings and not as many large scale events.  Our focus will be quality conversation in small settings, and little events to spark your curiosity and fun.

Don’t worry, I do plan to still do some larger events in Second Life, including everyone’s favorite annual Prom, but we will not host those events directly at The Pixel Bean (and quite honestly I don’t think we have in a few years used the actual cafe location for our huge events like that).

I hope you stop by and check out The Pixel Bean Coffeehouse and enjoy the rest of the sim as well (which will be a work in progress).  As usual, thank you for your support with my “baby” here in Second Life.  We’ve been around since 2009, and we are still going as strong as ever.

I’m short on time tonight, as I’m taking a day trip tomorrow out of town and I’m in the midst of getting ready for it.  I didn’t want to leave without at least showing you guys something from the 3rd Birthday round of Collabor88.  This round is insanely awesome.

Pixicat has released this stunning gladiator dress, with matching boots.  This outfit is SO fun. I just wanna grab a sword and a shield and run around roleplay sims!

The skin, and hair I’m wearing are also from this round. Seriously goodies y’all.

It Was Just A Dream


I wanted to show you all this genius new bed from Trompe Loeil.  The bed, created by the talented Cory Edo, is by far the most unique bed that I’ve owned in Second Life.  The hanging lights can be turned on and off, and the bed has a multitude of amazing poses. You can pick the bed up at FaMESHed this month!

Happy shopping everyone <3
