Venus by Belleza

belleza mesh body close

So, after reading many reviews I finally had to break down and get the Belleza Mesh Body, Venus. I’m dying to do a review-type post of the 3 mesh bodies I’ve acquired so far, to tell you my favorite parts about each body. For my first “look” with Venus I decided to try a Belleza skin with her. It’s been years since I’ve bought a skin from there so I took a bunch of demos home and decided on Claudia in Medium. All of their skin tones are provided in the hud, and a very large percentage of skin creators are now offering Belleza Venus appliers. A few of the major selling points for me on Venus were: The overall design of the body. I know that it is fitted mesh therefore modifiable, but there is still a difference. The Maitreya Mesh body, Lara is designed to be curvier for example. These are my favorite boobies of any mesh body I own, and I love that it has a large collection of nipple color choices. Not to mention all of the hand poses on your hud. The neckline was also a big selling point because I’ve been having an issue with that with my Maitreya body. It could be my computer, but I don’t think all of it is. I was also pleasantly surprised at the price. It’s still not cheap but it is no 5000 L$ either.

There are so many things to show and tell about Venus and I hope that very soon I’ll be able to create the post I mentioned at the beginning of this one. I can’t wait to try Venus with my Glam Affair skins, so many things I want to do, so little time. I will say this..Belleza’s Venus is my favorite of the 3 mesh bodies I own. I love them all of course but if I had to choose a fav, it would be this one.

Dark Glamour NEW from GizzA

dark glamour fashion shots final lighter

GizzA Creations would like to introduce Dark Glamour, the new formal attire collection for the season. I can’t remember the last time I wore a formal gown, so it was fun getting all dressed up even though I had no place to go. That’s one of the lovely benefits of saving outfits. If I do need a formal look, sometime in the near future, you know, like for dancing in the moonlight? [hint, hint]…I can have this entire look with just a couple of clicks.

Dark Glamour is a strapless, floor length evening gown with double thigh high slits that show off your legs quite nicely. Rich black textures partially covered with black sequins and a beautiful feathered accent piece on the right hip (just above the right leg slit) come together for a sleek, sexy, classic look. Matching stilettos and clutch purse come with the dress in GizzA Creation’s  convenient,  one-stop shopping fashion.

Oh the accessories you can wear with this dress. LaGyo has some amazing statement pieces and I went there with the intention of picking up one piece to wear with this gown. In real life I might have opted not to wear a necklace and earrings and let the head piece,  the dress’s feathery accent, and the dress itself for that matter, be the focal points; not have a lot of other things going on. In real life I wouldn’t be able to afford more than one item at a place like LaGyo so this would never be a problem. But this is second life and here stores are open 24/7 and you can afford a 2 am shopping binge at LaGyo. Or at least you think you can at 2 am. ( a lot easier to rationalize when you’re tired, perhaps?) I swear it’s like going to the grocery store when you’re hungry. I was just buying everything like I was Ivana Trump or something! Crazy. Oh, don’t act like you haven’t done it! :p

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!

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. 🙂

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. 🙂

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.

If you haven’t noticed, I’ve been venturing out of my safe, little photo orb more lately. Lately as in, since I’m able to view shadows. Lol, I just imagined a follower reading this and shaking their head saying, “she’s not going to talk about them damn shadows again, is she??” No, I am not..well I guess I kind of just did, but I was leading up to something else. Location.
We all know that there are literally thousands of awesome places in sl to take pics, some well known, and some waiting to be discovered. I’m betting that most of us also know that exploring the grid, looking for different photo locales is an experience within itself. Anything is possible in this world! If you have the time, that is.
That’s something else that I’ve bitched about mentioned quite often. How I wish I had more time. So lately I’ve been collecting LM’s and doing some googling on places to take photographs in second life, or.. beautiful, unique places in second life..whatever key words i can think of at the time.

The showcase section, located in the destination guide (found in the search section of your viewer, or here) has a lot of neat places to take pictures. I’ve also got a special landmark folder that I call “cool places”…yes, I know, such a snazzy, original name. When I’m out shopping, or on a hunt, or whatever, and I see a place that I like, I landmark it and drag it into said folder.

I wanted to share a very helpful post I found in Through Salamander’s eyes,  by Moniq Salamander. I am keeping this page bookmarked for sure. There are all sorts of different tips and lists. There is a list of links called Locations and there are some really good ones, and some great sources to find more!
