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!

FREE gifts!

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.

BOOM Ellio Bikinis

I so appreciate all of the welcome back wishes that you all have sent. The blogging community in sl has never ceased to amaze me at how sweet and helpful everyone is. I’d like to give a very special thanks to Aisling MacMoragh who helped me get back on my flickr, yay! and also for helping me with some of the new features that weren’t available before.

I’ve finally gotten a few opportunities to play with my shadow features..I went to the artilleri sim and played around with various windlight settings. I still have a lot to learn and maybe in a few months or a year these pics will make me cringe, but for now I am happy with how they turned out 🙂

Truth‘s Mercedes Hair is one of my new favs..I loved the blonde demo so much that I picked up a pack in blonde too..every color comes with dark root options.

with all the money that I’ve been spending shopping lately, my first choice of what to blog today is a free gift lol…the Morena sweater from Zaara is free in their notices..there is a 70L$ join fee, but I would pay much more than that for this sweater and scarf. There’s a men’s gift as well, but I haven’t tried it on yet..pretty sure it’s a sweater and scarf as well.

the hair is new from truth, and although i love all of  the long wavy styles that have come out lately, it seems like there’s an over-abundance of them. I’ve been on a mission lately to find some short sassy styles. I’d love some store recommendations if anybody has any. 🙂
