after-hours

after hours final with jacket

This post has been a long time in the making because real life seems to be keeping me pretty busy. Doesn’t rl know I have a second life to live?? Sheesh!

Poppy is looking business chic with her briefcase and mon tissu glasses. The top and belt are part of GizzA’s new creation, the Nicola Gown. It’s originally a formal gown, as seen here, but you can also wear the pieces separately to create your own unique look.

after hours final taking her hair down

 

Let down your hair, lose the jacket, lose the specs (or not) and this look easily transforms into an after-hours look. Great for role-play 🙂 Or if you want to “sex it up” a bit more you can always go a length or two shorter on your skirt (shown below wearing the mini length). The Maitreya Mesh Pencil skirts come in a variety of lengths and colors to fit anybody’s style.

If you’re looking for well-made applier clothing and accessories you must go to Izzie’s! There you will find several different gloves, stockings, lingerie, manis’ and pedis’…the list goes on and on and continues to grow. If you’re not in-world, Izzie’s creations (along with some killer dollarbies) can also be found on her marketplace store, here!

not so nautical

lime and navy at ys&ys fin1

Wow, wherever do I begin? There are so many amazing events, gifts, new products..I never have a problem finding something to blog. The hard part is making all of the choices!

I ventured out of my photo orb for this post. I wanted to play around with some different wind lights, and as much as I tried to make it a “not so nautical look”, I decided it sort of was and went with, drum roll……the beach. These photos were taken on the beautiful sim of YS&YS. While there I picked up the glamorous Viareggio Bag. This bag comes with a hud (bag & hud pictured below) which gives you 20 different color options for the foulard, and 3 different color options for the metal. The hud also allows you to resize your bag as big or as small as you like.

~taxicab to YS&YS~

I picked up The Essenz Bali Wedges (pictured below) back in the June round of L’accessories, and they are now in the Essenz Main store. If you haven’t shopped at this store, or if it’s been a while, I highly recommend that you put it on your “things-to-do list”, NOW. Have a scroll through some of the new items on their Facebook page, here, and see if your heart doesn’t skip a beat…

~taxicab to the Essenz Main Store~

IKON‘s new Hope Eyes are out and they are giving their group members a free pair! Denim Blue, shown in pic below. These are the first eyes I’ve ever worn that have a hud. They are quite customizable and they even have a light you can turn on or off, dim to bright, if you’d like to have shining eyes.

TP to Ikon. If you’re not already a member of their group, join, for free (omg I know, you don’t see that a lot anymore!), make sure you have on your group tag, and grab your gift!

To be honest with you, I’ve never really played around with several makeup tattoos all that much. I do wear mascara tattoos nearly all of the time, and a winged eyeliner here and there…I’ve worn lipsticks a few times..so I wear very minimal I’d say.

I’ve recently purchased Glam Affair‘s Romy (not pictured in this post). That will be a post all by itself, talking about her. She’s gorgeous btw, I love her 🙂 . But it looks like with Romy I’ll be doing a lot of makeup mixing and matching because she comes plain and all of the m/u’s are tats or appliers for visage. While binging at Glam Affair I picked up several different makeups and I’m modeling a few of them in this post. (see credits)

throwback EMERYb

The outfit in this post was one of my last prim purchases I do believe. I love this look. It’s cute and fresh..it has a nice mix of casual, sophisticated and sexy. (nice combination!)  It’s suitable for nearly anywhere in sl, really. I mean..I know there are no rules in sl anyway..if you want to walk through Lelutka dressed as a mesh turd, more power to you!

I’m going to take a wild guess that a lot of the people who are reading this are like myself; Anything you see me blog I would wear in real life. I like to dress Poppy in my style..I’m sure there are the occasional exceptions..one comes to mind but luckily I can’t find the photo anywhere!

I’d like to send a huge Thank You to the creators that have sent me their gorgeous items to blog. If you don’t see your item(s) right away please be patient with me. I work on my blog every chance I get but like I always say…there’s never enough hours in the day.

Today I worked on putting a look together, but I ended up spending a big chunk of time trying to get my inventory under control. I’m curious of some of the ways you ladies (and men :)) have integrated your mesh items into your inventory. Do you make a separate folder for your mesh clothes, or just combine them all together?

Emery has set up a large section downstairs in the front of the store with all of their mesh items. If you haven’t been lately you MUST go check it out. As usual their creations are beautiful!

faMESHed gift finalc

Hi friends 🙂 I’ve been dying to play sl! I haven’t logged in for a few days and I think I’m going through withdrawal, lol. I’ve been trying not to think of all the good deals I’ve missed out on. I did, however, manage to snag a couple of premium, top notch freebies before I left and yay!..they are still available!

Valentina E. is the sponsor for the ladies’ group gift of this faMESHed round. I didn’t realize how many of their outfits I had in my inventory. Their creations are absolutely amazing..I would put them in the highest category as far as how beautiful and well made their things are..I’m talking in the same category as Lelutka, Celoe, Maitreya..have a scroll through their blog and see if you agree, or better yet, go ahead and tp there and see firsthand! After you go to faMESHed and pick up the Valentina E. FREE gift that is.  Oh, and did I mention that the faMESHed group is actually FREE to join?? That’s refreshing to hear 🙂

billionaire watch and iphone fin

The above picture shows the Mandala Billionaire Watch set that I spoke of in my last post, here, in silver. The iPhone is by [ZULU] and I found it on the marketplace, here. This is the most realistic phone that I’ve seen in second life. I’m sure there are some just as nice, possibly even nicer, that I haven’t seen..but I love this phone. I can wear it with my a/o and the phone animations still work nicely. You can use the hud to text, talk on the phone, or take a selfie. Really cute animations too. It would be a good AFK animation..just click the button on the hud to text or talk and then go do your thang’.

The phone comes with a phone for your left hand, a left hand hud, a phone for your right hand, and a right hand hud. The background is customizable so you can put your own pic there if you like. You can also use the regular iPhone screenshot that comes with the phone. Directions for adding your own pic are in the package and it’s super simple. You just put your phone in edit mode (you can do this while it’s attached to you) and add the pic you want as your iPhone background into the phone’s “contents”. You may need to delete the previous texture to get your’s to show. If it’s the texture of the regular iPhone screenshot be sure and save it somewhere..your “textures” folder would probably be a good place :p

Essences Ginger Gacha Fin 1

I mentioned this skin, Alex in my last post. I got it at last month’s kustom9 in a Gacha machine. I knew from the picture that I would love it and I do. Even the red is growing on me. I finally found some more Alex skins, though, so I can have my normal coloring back now. I haven’t been able to find Alex in Essences, so I don’t know if it will end up in the main store, or if it will just be a special “event” and/or gift skin. I think it’s so pretty that they will have it in the store eventually… fingers crossed!

To get Alex with your choice of brow color (and all the other bells and whistles) now, you can find 3 beautiful versions at Uber. I’ll feature them in my next post, so stay tuned for that.

If you haven’t heard of Uber, it’s a new monthly themed event owned by Truth Hawks and managed by Miss Kaelyn Alecto. This month’s theme has been Vacation and features creations from 35 of second life’s top designers. Strawberry Singh has a post, here, with a list of the designers and links to pictures of their Uber items.

gingersnap accessories final

I had fun with the accessories in this little “ensemble”. The beaded [glow studio] Mauri earrings and the New Biarritz Beaded Collar from MG look like a set together. You can wear this necklace in a variety of colors. Simply touch (click on) the necklace to bring up an appearance menu. You can find it at faMESHed this month, along with it’s actual matching earrings, and many other irresistable items.

The gladiator sandals are New from Tee*fy and if they look familiar, they were introduced in last month’s collabor88 Safari selection. I haven’t been yet for this month, but I just looked at one of my favorite blogs, Seraphim, and now I’m foaming at the mouth to go. It’s c88‘s 3rd birthday and there are a ton of designers participating..maybe all of them..and then some! My heart is literally pounding I’m so excited to go lol. I don’t think that’s normal is it?? Never mind.

If you’re not familiar with the second life blog Seraphim, you need to be! It is a constant on my bookmark bar. They always posts pictures of every item in more events and gifts than would seem humanly possible. It’s great for checking out event items without dealing with the lag, or during a time when you’re unable to log on to sl.

This post is far longer than I meant for it to be, but I can’t sign off without commenting on the amazing manicure and pedicure appliers for Slink hands and feet from beauty by alaskametro. A huge variety of rich beautiful colors..they make me think of OPI polishes. 10 Linden Each!!!! What?? I couldn’t believe it and I’m going to buy everything she makes before she realizes how much more people would pay for it! Just kidding..well..not really. I’m unable to find an in-world store so I’m assuming the only way to get it is to shop marketplace sl. If you’d like to try before you buy she’s offering the free applier below..a sample of her beautiful work and 7 free colors! Thank you very much Miss Alaska Metropolitan, creator of  alaskametro<3.

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.
vera emery tuty's

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!

I haven’t had time to see if TuTy’s in-world store carries the free gift, but it’s on my list. I’ll add an in-world store link to this post anyway. While you’re there check out all of her awesome new ao’s and pose huds. There may even be some goodies there that aren’t on the marketplace!
