Blogger’s Challenge #2 – open to all!

with 9 comments

It’s my turn for Meri’s Blogger’s Challenge, which we’re doing every fortnight. Everyone is welcome to join in! It’s pure blogging, doesn’t have to be marketed anywhere and it’s just for fun.

Now, as most of the blogging world knows, it is FaMESHed Event’s 7th Anniversary round and there’s a whole lotta gifting going on.  The challenge is to make a post using gifts from this fabulous anniversary round.  It’s calmed down enough that you’ll be able to get into the Event if you haven’t already.

  1. You can choose between Fashion or Home & Garden or even both if you want to!
  2. Two items (fashion or décor according to what you’ve chosen) can be used in addition to the free gifts and they can be from anywhere.
  3. For the H&G bloggers, walls and floors are allowed as you’ve got to have those.
  4. For the Fashion bloggers, props and poses are allowed as they add to the scenes.
  5. Everything else must be free gifts from FaMESHed 7th Anniversary.
  6. Please add your post address in the comments!

Marrakech by Moonlight

with 3 comments

 

I’ve not been to Morocco but it looks a grand place to visit, the buildings and furniture are so exotic, not least the house courtyards which are generally open to the sky with the rooms set around them. Duvet Day‘s latest gacha, currently at Cosmopolitan, is called “Midnight in Marrakech” and includes the themed skybox.

 

 

Originally, Morocco’s first independent state was called the Berber Kingdom of Mauretania and that was ruled by the Berber’s clan and documented in 110 BC. Moroccan architecture since then has been influenced by early Islamisation in 788 to 974, Moorish exiles from Spain during the early 8th century to the late 15th century and also by France who occupied Morocco in 1912. Morocco’s varied geography and the long history of the land’s successive waves of settlers and military occupations are all reflected in the architecture. The French placed building standards where the buildings couldn’t be more than four stories high, twenty percent of any planned area had to be courtyards or gardens, balconies couldn’t overlook the neighbours and the roofs of all buildings should be flat. Very interesting because you then see that these regulations not only maintained the existing architecture but also balanced Morocco’s rapid urbanization.

 

 

I took photos inside the upper room (decked out as a bedroom), the side of the skybox that enclosed the rooms and stairs, and the courtyard area which, in this case, contains a very nice swimming pool.
