in protest of fall

atomic fin1

It’s officially fall and today happens to be the first “coolish” day we’ve had where I live. Keep in mind I live in the south-east of The United States where coolish means not excruciatingly hot. (coolish=85ºFarenheit)

Contrary to the title of this post I welcome Fall with open arms..but I really wanted to blog this awesome side cut-out dress that Atomic has at this month’s Collabor88. I regret not getting more side shots because the side cut-outs are really pretty (curse the lag!!!). They give this classic dress a little dash o’ sexy.

Of course, this dress doesn’t have to be confined to summer/spring. You could easily turn it into an autumn look with tights, or boots, a jacket or a shawl…all of the above…etc. etc. It also comes in 4 different color packs. Each dress is considered a color-pack because it includes a hud where you can choose from 3 different colors.

I love Atomic‘s new(ish) Aphrodite Floral headpiece worn in Poppy’s hair. It gives her an ethereal look. The headpiece is unrigged so I was easily able to move it to the opposite side of her head, and it fit perfectly with Magika‘s newest ‘do, No.

She looks like she could be going to a wedding..or maybe even in a wedding. Sighs, always the bridesmaid, never the bride. Hey, that would be a good blog post title..I could have Poppy sitting on a bench, holding the bouquet she had caught at a wedding. She could be all tired and depressed or irritated waiting for the bus or subway. Eh, sounds like a lot of work. Cute thought, though. 🙂

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

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.

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!

this post is for the birds


I’ve recently discovered a “new to me” sim called Cadeling Garden..a beautiful whimsical place, like something out of a dream. There were blackbirds flying around in various spots, so I had to pull Lady out and take a few pics 🙂

*Cadeling Garden is a magical world where two French artists, Cadel Abubakar and Ling Serenity, present their artwork inside a fantasy and poetic atmosphere suspended above the water. The garden is a place to meditate, to take some gorgeous photos or just explore and relax!

The photo below was taken by the amazing Miss Dailyn Holfe, and you can see more on her flickrstream, here.

breaking and entering

While on my posestand a couple days ago trying to find the right spot on our beach to model Kyoot’s awesome new bikini, I kept camming over and admiring my neighbors beautiful land..she/he..I’m not really sure to tell you the truth… has it fixed up like a tropical paradise. It’s without a doubt one of the best landscaping/decorating jobs I’ve seen in sl. And I’ve never seen anyone there either. It was so easy to go into a birds eye view and move myself and my posestand over there with one simple move…and this is where I landed, lol..well..pretty much…I may have done a little adjusting ;).

So hopefully my mystery neighbor isn’t a reader of my blog, and if they are, they will forgive my trespassing..it really is the highest compliment..I couldn’t help myself!
