Someday..

Hello??? Is anybody there? I highly doubt it. I can’t believe 2 years have passed by so quickly. I’m at a point in my real life where there is no way I can have the time to do the sort of sl blog that I dream of doing. Hopefully some day I’ll be able to do that, but not at this point in time.

I miss it so, so very much! I’ve only recently returned to second life. I not only quit blogging but I stopped playing all together. Then one day a couple weeks ago, I downloaded Firestorm and now all of a sudden, I find myself back.

I’ve been spending my time trying to get caught up in this new, mesh world. I really need to start applying the brakes on my shopping now, lol. At least for a week. A business week. Baby steps. 🙂

I’ve been looking at my blog quite a lot lately. I had never in my whole second life used the outfit option…boy do i wish I had saved all of the outfits and looks I blogged over all that time. I’m even going back and recreating some of my favorite looks and saving them.

I really hope to post occasionally and even snap a few pics to add. What I would really love to do someday is a freebie blog. It never ceases to amaze me, the gems you can find for free if you look. This post in particular I was looking at this morning thinking, “omg..everything in this entire shoot is free!” An entire furnished cottage, with very cute, stylish, shabby chic decor. This has always been one of my all-time favorite blogs…I aspire to do something on the line of that….Someday.

Please leave a message and say hi..I’m curious, and quite doubtful, if anyone at all ever stops by here anymore. You’ll be seeing me again, dammit! Well, that is unless I go broke first :/ Wait a minute. I already am broke..ok then…You’ll be seeing me again, dammit!

I hope everyone is doing happy and well in both lives, and maybe I’ll run into you on the grid sometime. I mean literally…run into you. My connection sucks! :p

❤pp

These pics were from my very last photo shoot before leaving sl (around 2 years ago)…they were never posted.

Ok, then…it seems WordPress has changed things up a bit..I tried to post a style card and it was all over the place. It looks like I’m going to have to give myself a crash course on the “New and Hopefully Improved” WordPress. Who knows, I may truly make a fresh start and go with a different blog site altogether. That’ll show ’em for not letting me post my style card! Hmpft! :p jk.

(Edit) Ok, I think I’ve finally managed to post my style card..no links posted because I haven’t had time to check all of the LM’s..I know a lot of stores have moved since I’ve been away. I’m pretty sure you can still find most everything listed though.

watch for me by moonlight,

As promised..2 days later..here is the free jewelry set from Donna Flora..you’ll find it in the jewelry section of the main store beneath the BOSL Award trophy for the Best Jewelry Designer…Congratulations and thank you to Squinternet Larnia..the amazing creator of Donna Flora.

I also wanted to give a huge thank you to Sebastien Aries, creator of Shag Hair for the amazing gifts he sent to the losers everyone who entered his last Flickr photo contest, “Am I Shaggable?” as a “thank you” for participating. “What were the gifts?”,  you ask? Oh, only fatpacks of his 2 latest Hair Fair styles, Bombshell and Ingenue, that’s all…lol…That was the most generous thing, my jaw dropped to the floor when I received it…thank you Seb!!…and to quote a fellow blogger…”you are a God!!!

Olivia!


I’m so excited about Laqroki‘s new Olivia! I mentioned to a friend in my previous post’s comments, “…i was worried at first because i was having puter issues when i was demo’ing it…i think i was seeing olivia mixed with ruth lol…not pretty!

But when all the kinks were ironed out, and I saw her, it was pretty much love at first sight 🙂

 Olivia is 990L$ per skintone, and includes 5 lipstick choices. (above)

They’ve also released eye makeups on tattoo layers that you can buy separately for 120L$ a set. The pic above are the shadows in set 1…set 2 offers blue, green and purple liners..

I hadn’t been to Donna Flora in quite some time…that store awes me every time I go…so many beautiful things. I absolutely fell in love…(i know, i’m falling in love all the time :p) with the Daria set, (below). They also have a free jewelry set in the store..I hadn’t heard anything about it..I was so excited to find it! I’m going to try to get a pic of it up today but it would be probably be faster to just tp to Donna Flora and get it..I mean, c’mon..a free Donna Flora jewelry set..you know you’re going to want it lol.

I had so much fun taking these pics. Girly, playing dressing up, decorating doll house-type fun. 🙂

I have to be honest…I was hoping I wouldn’t like Vive9‘s newest skin, Abbey…you know..being a blogger isn’t cheap :/ But once I tried her on and saw how uniquely beautiful she was… it was an emergency…I had to have her. I wasn’t able to get her that day, so I thought I’d settle for her gorgeous gappy teeth. I searched the store, and bought the ones for sale individually in the store. They weren’t the gappy ones. I was sad.

Long story short, when I was able to get Abbey I found the gappy teeth came as an optional tattoo layer with the skin! I love it so very much. I haven’t had a chance to try it on with any non Vive9 skins yet, so not sure how that will work..but I’ll let you know!

Each skin in the Abbey folder comes with a matte lip version and a glossy lip version…also dark and light brow versions. There are lots of extras, like the awesome gappy teeth, alpha layers for head and lashes, hairbase tat and several pairs of eyes just to name a few. Abbey is also available in some new tones..I was prepared to buy a really  fair skin, but ended up falling in love with the tan.

I’ve always wanted to blog a formal gown…the whole time I’ve had my blog (7 months now :)) I’ve never worn one! When I saw ORTA creator Valena Glushenko’s new Cassandra gown, I knew I had another emergency on my hands. Rich, beautiful textures with Glushenko’s signature chic elegance, this is a gown that will still be in style 10, 20, 30 years always be in style. 🙂

new girl in town

Introducing Lorena, Syndel Daviau of Tribal Soul Designs latest creation. I always get excited blogging skins that are new to me, and Lorena is no exception. I have to say, I’m really impressed with this skin. All you have to do is look at her to see all of the hard work that was put into her…and omg…wait until you hear about all of the options!

Each makeup comes with 12 skins!! yes…12. They include the options: freckles/no freckles, bald/hairbase/hairbase with bangs, round full breasts, small unshadowed breasts. Extra freckles, age marks(makes your avi look old), and blush are some of the other options available and sold seperately. These options can all be used with your other skinlines as well.

I love her full dark eyebrows so very much, and the hairbase with bangs is really cool as well..it looks very chic and sophisticated worn alone. I also really love having my unshadowed small boobies and not have to waste a tattoo layer to have  it. The shadowed boobie option is really nice too…not overdone…doesn’t look  like you have an asscrack for cleavage (see below).

I found myself sitting here oooing and ahing over the makeups. Every color you could need in beautiful rich tones, different natural looks, and a clean-face look also.. for wearing your makeup tattoos 🙂
