I’m so very excited to see Laqroki back in the biz. I’ve worn Laqroki skins for the  majority of my sl. I’m quite taken with the new Glam Affair skin from my last post, but the temptation was too strong, I had to try one of the new Laqroki skins. Their new skin line is called The Fresh and Essential Skins and features Mix and Match; all facial features are on tattoo layers, which makes it possible to create your own unique look!  I haven’t had time to play around with it like I’d like to but I am very curious to mix and match and see what sorts of looks I can come up with. Here are some great examples of the different looks you can create  from the Laqroki Blog. Laqroki has also released body appliers for Slink Mesh Physique, and Maitreya Mesh Body, Lara. (They have appliers for the new Fresh and Essential Skins and the Glow skins from before as well…yay!!!)  The appliers are yours for FREE the first week after release ❤
*(Regular prices will be set 9 Febuary, 1 AM SLT)

Giz Seorn of GizzA Creations’ new Collection, The Frida Inspiration Gown is a true masterpiece. Inspired by the works of  legendary Mexican artist Frida Kahlo, this gown is rich in Mexican culture. Vibrant, eye-catching red and yellow hues throughout, and the skirt adorned with images of two of *Diego Rivera‘s most famous pieces of work, “Mercado de flores” and “The Flower Seller”.  A beautifully detailed rose headpiece and a hand-held lily flower (with and without pose options) complete the look. The lily flower is not shown in this post, but here are a couple of amazing pictures that I found on the blog Urban Legends by Natsumi Kangjon if you’d like to see it. 🙂

*Diego Rivera was a very prominent Mexican artist who was married to Frida Kahlo. If you’re not familiar with his work you should google him…it really is brilliant. Special thanks to Miss Xaqueline Seda for her knowledge on art history and Mexican culture. ❤︎

*Contrary to popular belief castanets are not used in the Flamenco…nor are they Mexican, but Spanish instruments. I really love them with this outfit though. I found these on the marketplace, created by Una Daxter. When the left one is attached the action begins lol. You can hear the click click sounds and your avi does a funny little Flamenco-like dance..GREAT for driving your friends insane! For the pics I copied the right one and just used two rights because she wouldn’t even stay still on the pose stand when I attached the left…she was clickety-clickin’ all over the place.

My “favorite sl outfits ever” list is getting too long. I may have to start calling it a “category”. Here’s another outfit that made the cut. Believe it or not these pieces are from different creators. They could almost be a set, with their similar rich textures and beautiful ruffles.

Ok, I have to talk about the amazing Dupla Ruffled Leggings from Mutresse. These are NOT your average, everyday leggings and once you try them you will be blown away by the countless looks you are able to come up with.

Mutresse Dupla Leggings. 1 pair of pants, 1000 different looks.
mutresse leggings_poster_700x525

These rigged mesh leggings come with 3 wearable parts; the leggings, the waistband and the ruffles. They also come with a hud that has 24 different  fabric options for each piece, plus a section to modify the sheer parts of the leggings. Read the notecard inside the Leggings folder for easy instructions on modifying the sheer parts. The photo above (snagged from Mutresse’s marketplace store) shows 3 different ways to wear the leggings, plus sample swatches of the 24 different fabric options the hud gives you for each individual piece!

The V.e. Ruffled Bolero is available in a variety of color combinations, and can be purchased on Valentina E.’s marketplace store, or at the main store in-world. Click here to visit Valentina E. on the marketplace. If you’d like to see the available colors and the matching Gaucho, sold separately, the marketplace link has clear pictures that you can zoom in on. I’m thinking I need to pick up a couple more of these boleros. There are so many different ways you can wear it,  it took me forever to decide on just one! If you’d like visit the in-world store, click the link below.

I went a little old-school on some of my accessories and I admit, I’ll probably go bolder with my jewelry next time I wear this. I kept going back to the Zaara pieces though. I love the way the amethyst in the Vanisri necklace complements the purple and teal in the corset and bolero.

The corset is from FINESMITH, a store I found on….guess where? You got it! The Marketplace..I’m telling you when it comes to marketplace I’m as bad as a little old lady on QVC. The Romance Corset is 100% mesh and comes with an attachable hud that gives you 5 different colors to choose from. See color choices and/or visit FINESMITH’s marketplace store, here.

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.

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.
vera emery tuty's

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!

seashore soiree

Final Anchor 1
So, after a very long time..dating back before my much discussed (by me) leave of absence, I finally broke down and joined the Mon Tissu Soiree. This is, as many of you know, the mon tissu group that you can join, for a hefty fee, and receive the wall of free gifts in the front of the store. It’s the most I’ve ever paid to join a group, but when I began opening everything it really was like Christmas. You get so many things, some only available to members and not even sold in store. Straw Tote shown above included in mon tissu Soiree gift.

~Click here to get your Soiree on at [mon tissu]~

FINAL 2
Also on my list of things to get in sl, was this beautiful one piece bathing suit; Amarelo Manga’s July Group Gift. All mesh and a variety of sizes to choose from. Be sure and look around while you’re there. I had never shopped there before and was excited to find some beautiful creations.

FINAL 3 GizzA nautical set
When I began accessorizing my swimsuit I couldn’t believe with all of the nautical items that everyone’s been selling at recent events, I didn’t have any..well, nothing new I should say lol. I found this set on marketplace by GizzA Creations..I love the detail in this jewelry. You can buy the pieces individually or in a set with necklace, earrings, bracelet and ring. I’m wearing the earrings but my hair ended up hiding them in the photos. 😦
