Romy and GizzA Kokolores poses fin2

GizzA Creations’ new collection, The Anne Marie Outfit, is a beautiful ready-to-wear dress that is perfect for the changing of seasons. A belted mini with a contrasting colored top, this dress is available in 6 different color combinations, and comes with matching t-strap pumps and clutch. ¬†This classic dress will be a favorite in your inventory. It is so nicely made and I can’t tell you how many compliments I’ve received while hopping around the grid in this number.

I’m wearing my new Romy skin by Glam Affair in this post. If you visit this blog often, get used to seeing me in it for a while, I’m kind of in love with it. ūüôā ¬†Romy comes as a plain base skin and you choose all of the colors and features you’d like to personalize your own look with.

I haven’t experimented with Glam Affair’s The Mesh Project yet, which I¬†know is¬†very¬†customizable. I may delve into it soon but right now I’m very happy with this look. If you’d like more information on The Mesh Project you can check out Glam Affair’s web site, here, or take the taxicab above and check it out in-world. So many goodies so little time…

Have you seen the freebie “mecca” in front of Pure Poison’s mainstore yet? Maybe it’s already been blogged and reblogged a million times, but for myself, it was my¬†first time seeing¬†it.¬†Being the fashion addict that I am, it was quite a rush when I saw what nice gifts they had available. You have to join the group, zero fee, yay! …¬†then just go nuts! Grab whatever you like, or in my case, everything. They also have four or five gacha! group gifts where you get one free play per machine. Prepare to be awed.

Romy GizzA accessories fin

Shown above are the accessories worn in this post: The shoes and the clutch come with your GizzA Anne Marie dress. The colors vary, depending on which dress color combo you decide on. I always seem to gravitate towards the teals. The triple rings are LaGyo (scripted to prompt color-change menu for the stones upon touch), the single gold ring is part of the ISON Safari Tribe set and the earrings are from ANE. The Tisuki necklace and July bangles are just a couple of the beautiful finds from the Pure Poison free kiosks. You can find all links at the bottom of this post.

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!

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!

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. ūüôā

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.

freebies & feebies :-)

House of Hucci‘s new Calvi Dress..the Rose Smoke-colored version in this post is their Free Group Gift. I’m not sure how long they’ll be available since we’re going into October as we speak..or rather, as I write. I remember receiving the gift in mid-September, so hopefully it will be available a while longer, or at least in group notices.

The textures on this mesh dress are gorgeous. The top being so silky and soft looking, while the skirt part is smooth and sleek. I paired it with some silk stockings from Sheer and one of¬†[whatever]‘s group gifts, the High Heels.

~Click here to TP to House of Hucci~

A pet peeve of mine is when a blogger goes on about a nice free group gift such as the High Heels in this post, and fails to mention ¬†that there is a fee to join…in this particular case, a 300 L$ fee. I saw the High Heels in a blog marked as “FREE! FREE! FREE!” ¬†so I tp’d to [whatever]. My mouth fell open when I saw the table with all of the beautiful group gifts on it. I knew then, that there must be a group fee, and on that particular day, I was broke. But I still sat and admired the High Heels, the two pairs of free boots, (only one pair pictured in this post), and a very nicely made floral silk scarf top.

Not long after my trip there I received a visit from the Linden Fairy. I kept contemplating going back to [whatever] and paying the fee. When I tried on the House of Hucci gift, I knew I had to have the gift heels. I figured I’d pay more than that for a pair of shoes anyway, and the other gifts are really nice things that I’ll definitely wear… and hopefully, all of their future group gifts are as amazing as these!

August Gifts

TokiD‘s August gift is out! The new Mari shirt. Turquoise and polkadot and adorable the gift includes ¬†6 sizes of tops to choose from. I would normally wear the xs but I wore the small because I didn’t want the prim from the shorts to poke through. I was really impressed by the fit of this top. Being a small chested avi I’ve had to make my boobies bigger for a few mesh tops but I didn’t have to change my shape at all for this shirt..and I couldn’t look down my shirt and see invisible boobs..just a nice, perfect fit.

A peek from behind. The silky back strap is a nice surprise when you turn around and always gets a couple of oohs and ahs. I also love the pretty ribbon in the back of the [e]likatira hair, Changes, that I’m wearing in this post.

The skin in the pics above is Filthy skin’s August group gift. (also some really cool lipgloss makeup tats..be sure and grab those too while you’re there!) ¬†There is a group fee but I thought this was a really cute skin so I didn’t mind paying it. Plus I have been dying to try on some new skins. I’ve acquired a few demos that I’ve been looking forward to trying on..

The 80’s Heels are another find from HOC Industries @ The Vintage Fair. Above, is the picture of the HUD that you wear to change the shoes and socks colors. I’m excited about these shoes..I keep thinking of outfits that they would look so adorable with..and the combinations are endless!
