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. :(

NEW! from GizzA Creations

GizzA’s new Matilda ready to wear collection.
Matilda final

GizzA has some absolutely stunning new items. Matilda is a bohemian chic ensemble, and I couldn’t believe it came with everything..A full length skirt, a cute summer top, a denim jacket (a version of just the top and a version with the top and jacket), the handbag, the sunglasses, and the necklace! I’m wearing the [Green Lines] version, but there are several different patterns and colors to choose from. This would be awesome to fatback and mix and match the items too.

I hope my pictures show how nicely made and beautifully textured these creations are. If you’ve never been before, or if you haven’t been in a while, definitely check out GizzA Creations!

keeping it simple

I went ahead and stuck this picture in last minute because it so depicts the way that I’m feeling right now. Maybe someone else would see it another way, but I just imagine sitting there overwhelmed with so much work to do, wanting to be anywhere else but there, and just “sighhhhhhh”. No idea why I see it that way. ;)

Library 2 final corrected

I dug deep into my sl closet and came across my Kookie Armada boots. I did want to wear something newer, something I’ve purchased since my return, but I loved the way they went with the look, the skirt in particular. It’s young and fun and comfy…and if sl were real these are definitely the type of shoes I would be wearing with as much running around the grid as I’ve been doing.

Library Final

NEW Braid Bracelets from Izzie’s in a variety of colors to choose from, and The Basic Purse, NEW, by Imeka, purchased at kustom9.

Final Library purse and bracelet

I didn’t plan it, but all of these little gold hearts started showing up in my accessories. I relented at the end and searched for heart earrings to finish this simplistic look off..The ones worn are an old gift from Caroline’s Jewelry. To be honest I haven’t investigated Caroline’s Jewelry since I came back…but it’s on my list!

don’t lose your head!

Happy Thursday! I’ve been enjoying being back in sl. The only problem is, just as in real life, there is never enough time to do all that I want to do. It’s very easy to get distracted in second life, with all the new product notices from your favorite creators coming in, all of the awesome events, freebies, group gifts, hunts…                                                                          aaaagghhhhh!!!cinderella exploding head gifOk, shake it off, Poppy..snap out of it. ~throws a glass of ice water in my face.~ Whew..ok..I’m calm.
I’ve been doing a little exploring as well. The below pics were taken at a place that I’m sure most of you who are reading this already know of; The Trace. It’s so pretty and I’d say that anywhere you stand on the sim is a good photo spot. There are several little beautifully decorated beach cottages, lots of beach, of course, a sailboat..Many different options if you don’t want another second life beach picture. Not that there’s anything wrong with that, lol…all I’m saying is..there are a lot of beaches in sl. :)

The Trace final
I still want to go back and explore some more, I didn’t even get to see it all. I did, however, come upon some beautiful Hibiscus trees with vibrant, pink blooms. I couldn’t resist picking one and putting it in my hair. Surely they wouldn’t mind..I mean..I was considerate and snipped it off the back of the plant. :)

zarra sandals final final

Finally…it would be a crime to post this entry without a close-up of one of  Zaara’s Summerfest items, the new Janya jeweled sandals. These, without a doubt, have got to be my new favorite summer sandals. The detail in the gemstones, the beads, the entire shoe, is exquisite.

There are 12 fresh, summery colors to choose from, and each pair comes with rigged and unrigged versions fitted to Slink Flat Feet. The unrigged version can be edited to fit most other flat feet. If you’re not sure though, pick up a free demo, which includes all sizes, colors and versions of the sandal.
