paper.doll @ FAIR

I’m sure most of you have heard about the newest Chic Management event, FAIR. FAIR will be a monthly themed event, this month’s theme being time. Each creation is about a certain time of the day. Read more about this unique event, and see a list of participating stores, on the CHIC Management website, here.

The Cotton Slip Set is paper.doll’s FAIR item this month. I love when an outfit is sweet and sexy at the same time. Not only that, but these make adorable tops. You can pair them with almost anything. My favorite way to wear it as a top would be to pair it with skinny jeans and some cute sandals, or flats.

I would like to make a couple of quick comments about the first picture in this post…well first of all, not sure how “quick” it will be. See? I’m already wasting time. First of all, I just now found out that Long Awkward Pose closed down for good while I was away. This makes me sad. In my opinion they are some of the best modeling poses on the grid. I’d like to wish Dove Swanson good luck in life and tell her what an honor it was blogging for her. I’m sure you’ll still see LAP on my credits now and then. A lot of times when I’m looking for a specific type of pose, that’s the folder I find it in…which leads me to the second thing I wanted to mention…

The poses in the first picture were meant to be stretching and yawning, just-woke-up types of poses. The more I look at it though, it looks like Poppy number one is singing loud and obnoxiously and Poppy number three is covering her ears. Poppy number two doesn’t seem to care.

Gotta love those sl facial emotes.

the best things in (second) life are free

An empty pocketbook is no excuse not to go on a shopping extravaganza this weekend. There are so many hunts and free gifts going on right now, including my all time favorite, The Seasons Hunt. You can tell by all the pictures in this post I’ve been a very busy bee redecorating the bedroom in my new Blossom cottage from FunkyJunk, available at the April Chic Limited event.

The Second Life Marketplace is filled with treasures, freebies, gifts ie..you just have to know how to search them out. Try browsing your items from lowest priced to highest priced(under the advanced search option) I’ve found so many great deals that way-Like these free cups of coffee and tea from Nordari. (beverage inside is scripted to change when touched) Nordari always has awesome in store freebies, but they also have a few gifts that are only available on the marketplace.

The color.me room divider by Nordari is probably my favorite find from this entire shoot. I’m not sure if it’s available in store or not..I found it for FREE on the Marketplace. The wood and the fabric are both texture change-just click for the menu 🙂

hanging lamps behind dressing screen: recycling.lamps by nordari. FREE on Marketplace SL. 4 diff lamps included polka dot shown here..click to make light.

Ch-Ch-Ch-Chia! Intrigue’s Seasons Hunt gift is probably pretty high on my favorite finds list as well. Scripted to “grow” when you click him (the plant, not the planter, of course lol) Although the planter is modify so you can make it any size you wish…yes if you’ve been secretly dreaming of a gigantic Chia pet for your, er..personal pleasure this is your lucky day. Hey, this is sl….you never know!

In Spring Bed by Art Dummy..FREE in TSH. 22 prims and 16 animations (4 singles and 4 couples on each pillow)

light hanging above bed: nordari lamps FREE The Seasons Hunt. 4 diff color lamps included, 2 prims a piece…also comes with mouth lime (not worn)
rug: nordari ruggies FREE in-world (gift includes 6 different color rugs)

(above) Art imitating life imitating art….whoa…that’s heavy man :p

Another hunt worth checking out is the Nerd Bomberz Hunt…I actually haven’t checked it out yet I’ve been so busy with The Seasons Hunt, lol…but I figured a hunt with a gift as good as the Nerd Bombers Desk from Crackberry in it..is definitely worth checking out! (searching for a bomb in this hunt)
The chair has 3 sitting animations, The picture on the bulletin board can be changed to your own and it’s only 18 prims. The book and the computer are also included.
also in pic..

The 3 adorable pics on the wall above the desk: duboo-FREE The Seasons Hunt (also included is a little plant sprig for your head :p)

lady and the tram

I have another new favorite hair! Lohan by Lelutka..very sexy I couldn’t wait to wear it. They’ve been adding a lot to their hair collection lately and I’m not complaining one bit.

I wanted to show you a close up shot of the tram necklace…I think it’s just beautiful….as is everything else in the store. This necklace comes in a long and short version (sold separately). I thought it went perfectly with the new Chiffon skirt from The Secret Store…”an outfit to fall in love in”*

There is so much I’ve wanted to blog lately but because of rl obligations I just haven’t had the time. If you’ve given me review copies and I haven’t posted yet, please be patient with me! You can even give me a nudge if you like and say, “hey b*&ch, why you no blog my s&*t???” jk..but do feel free to contact me about anything 🙂

taxicab to Vive9 @ Eugene

mop top pop

I’m usually a straight hair kind of gal, but some of the curlier do’s that are coming out lately are irresistable! Raquel from Truth is one of those styles..I never would have even tried it if I hadn’t fallen so in love with the real curly Dernier Cri do, Taylor. This one sort of reminded me of Taylor, but shorter.

The dress is vive9’s newest release and it’s no surprise to me how well made it is, and how easy it is to fit…because vive9 is da bomb :p  It comes with an awesome brown and gold belt that you will definitely see in some future posts, but I opted for Lelutka’s  MI VIDA belt..(and discovered after owning it for almost a year that it’s colorchange, lol)

Oh..and I apologize for putting the ETD purse in this post..I really try not to blog things that aren’t available anymore, but this was an emergency situation. The bag I wanted to carry was the Marine Tote from Indyra Originals, but the vendor system wasn’t working correctly…and Ms. Indyra never responded to my IM’s or notecard, which drove me crazy because it took me about half an hour to track down where that bag was from..I had seen it before but I couldn’t remember where…Trust me..if you search a feed for “red bag” it takes a while to sort through all the results. :/

Caitlyn

It was love at first sight for me when I saw Caitlyn (no, random blog surfers this is not a lesbian love story :p) Caitlyn is one of the newest skins created by Daniel Knave of Bitzu. When I came across her flickr pics she caught my eye.. I thought she was so pretty I actually contacted Daniel and asked if I could blog her.

The skirt, shoes, and handbag for my LOTD are from a “new to me” store called TokiD…they have some reallllllyyy cute things..so nicely made..not a lot of inventory yet but believe me the quality more than makes up for the the quantity.

Ok, since this post is for a skin I thought I’d take this opportunity to strip down to my underwear…thank goodness I happened to be wearing Insolence!
I found her just as lovely naked…beautiful breasts, a smooth creamy complexion..oh and if you zoom in you can see the light sprinkle of freckles across her nose….adorable!

Each skin comes with a cleavage option as well..both options are pictured below…
