hi friends❤

i AM smiling

If anyone cares, I haven’t fallen off the face of the earth..or the grid. Just having the busiest time ever in real life..I have vanished from all of my social media circles; or should I say both of my social media circles? lol..yes that is more like it.

I admit, I have a hard time managing my rl/online time-and I have major rl responsibilities that cannot be waved off or procrastinated. Although, believe me, I procrastinate all things procrastinate-able. <—-new word :)

I feel like I’m always bitching and complaining on here about how little time I have and blah blah blah. I’m sorry if I sound like a broken record..I miss sl and my blog and just felt like sharing..and putting up a post saying, “Hey! I’m still here! I’ll be back!”.

So, hey! I’m still here, and I’ll be back!

Maitreya Top final

There are so many awesome fashion events happening right now in sl..as always, lol. I’m not complaining, although it is quite addictive. I’m always afraid I’m going to miss out on some “once-in-a-second-lifetime” deal…and I won’t even get started discussing the Gacha machines!

Maitreya top Mutresse Clutch and Lion Cuff final

above: One of Lethal Couture’s kustom9 creations for August; The Lion Head Cuff in black and gold (other color options and items from this creator available at event).
The Mutresse Muci Clutch is a must have for your sl wardrobe. It comes with an attachable hud (shown below) that gives you 13 different color choices for the leather, and 4 different metal choices for the clasp, chain and studs. Also, 2 versions of clutch included in folder; 1 regular and 1 for Slink casual hands.

I’m still in my Slink Physique..still trying to get used to it. I don’t feel “comfortable in my own skin” yet…literally, lol. It also makes me sad to think of all the things in my inventory that I can’t wear with it. I see a lot of things happening quickly..as I mentioned in an earlier post, I’m seeing clothing appliers all over marketplace. A lot of the the applier items that I’ve seen remind me of the outfits that we first tried to make on the old sl clothing sliders. I’ve seen a few cute things too, and some beautiful lingerie.
Will our pre-mesh items become obsolete? Does anyone wear their old outfits and/or accessories anymore? And if they do, will they be arrested by the MESH police?

ONE MORE DAY of COLLABOR88 JULY!

safari final3

It’s so “me” to blog the July collabor88 items on August the 5th. Luckily, you have until tomorrow if you haven’t been yet, or if you want to go back and get more. The sim is closed on the 7th of every month so the designers can prepare it for the new month’s collection which is always debuted on the 8th of each month. They encourage the designers to put their collabor88 items up in their stores afterwards, but it’s ultimately up to the designer, so if you’re really in love with something, play it safe and try to get it while it’s there. Learn from my pain!

~tp to collabor88 before it’s too late!~

I fell in love with this romper by Mutresse. Every aspect of it is color-change, from the piping on the neckline down to the ties on the sides of the legs. Just add on the hud (pictured below) and see all of the awesome combinations that are possible.

The Slink Physique

THE SLINK PHYSIQUE

Slink Physiquefront&backfinal

I finally bit the bullet and got the Slink Physique. I’ve been doing some research, and I said that I never would get a mesh body, but I must say, it is quite beautiful. The pictures in this post were taken right when I got it and was getting familiar with it. You can use your sliders just like you can with your ordinary skin. I didn’t get the Visage, which I assume is a mesh head. I don’t think the sliders work for the head, please correct me if I’m wrong on that.

I know most of you have seen this video already, but if you haven’t and are curious about the Slink Physique, Gogo’s video and post on the subject is very helpful. Here is the website that the notecard included with the SLP links you to for full instructions on how to get started with your new mesh body.

~taxicab to Slink and grab a demo!~

Slink PhysiqueApplier lingerie FINAL
Included in your Slink Physique purchase is a lingerie applier. You wear this like a hud, and you are given the choice of 3 sets of bras and panties to wear; white, red, or black.

If all of this sounds foreign to you I promise, all you have to do is follow the directions on the notecards and it’s simple as pie. It’s true, at this time there are some minuses about the mesh body, the biggest one, in my opinion, being that there are certain outfits that won’t work with it, because the system clothing layer cannot be seen. I have a strong feeling that, in the very near future, clothing appliers are going to be sold along with outfits and separately for layering options and such, if not already.

Slink Physique Dress final
Also included in you Slink Physique purchase is this amazing One Shoulder Dress, that fits your new bod like a glove. It is stunning.

Besides the shadows, these photos are totally unedited. The longer I blog the more imperfections I see and it’s awesome not having to worry about liquifying all of the weird points jutting out of various places on my body. This body could actually save me some time! ❤

vera skin emery sunrise“You can only come to the morning through the shadows.” -J.R.R. Tolkien

I’ve always wished so badly that I was a morning person. The good news is, I do get to enjoy beautiful sunrises quite regularly. The bad news is, nine times out of ten, it’s because I’m still up from the night before. I guess we can’t have it all.

Anyone who knows me, knows that I am a marketplace junkie. I am so happy to find that so many creators have finally starting putting their items on the marketplace. I would think that it could really boost your business. One big plus for myself is the fact that you don’t even have to be in-world to shop.

A few nights ago I was trying to get caught up with some things online and I kept thinking of items I wanted to check for on the marketplace. That’s when I came across this adorable little Chihuahua puppy in a color-change tote bag. I couldn’t believe it was FREE. I also couldn’t believe how beautifully textured and “real” looking the bag is; not to mention the fact that it’s color-change with 12 different colors to choose from!

Speaking of more for your money, Everglow, one of my all-time favorite pose stores, has recently announced that they will be changing sims and renovating their store. It wasn’t clear to me whether or not they would be closing down temporarily, but what was crystal clear to me is that they are having a huge summer sale. Everything in the store is 50% off! This is the best time to stock up on some of the best poses in sl..❤

seashore soiree

Final Anchor 1
So, after a very long time..dating back before my much discussed (by me) leave of absence, I finally broke down and joined the Mon Tissu Soiree. This is, as many of you know, the mon tissu group that you can join, for a hefty fee, and receive the wall of free gifts in the front of the store. It’s the most I’ve ever paid to join a group, but when I began opening everything it really was like Christmas. You get so many things, some only available to members and not even sold in store. Straw Tote shown above included in mon tissu Soiree gift.

FINAL 2
Also on my list of things to get in sl, was this beautiful one piece bathing suit; Amarelo Manga’s July Group Gift. All mesh and a variety of sizes to choose from. Be sure and look around while you’re there. I had never shopped there before and was excited to find some beautiful creations.

FINAL 3 GizzA nautical set
When I began accessorizing my swimsuit I couldn’t believe with all of the nautical items that everyone’s been selling at recent events, I didn’t have any..well, nothing new I should say lol. I found this set on marketplace by GizzA Creations..I love the detail in this jewelry. You can buy the pieces individually or in a set with necklace, earrings, bracelet and ring. I’m wearing the earrings but my hair ended up hiding them in the photos. :(
