hope springs eternal

I’ve been enjoying playing around in photoshop lately..it’s great stress therapy! There are some amazing tutorials to be found also. I’ve mentioned Strawberry Singh’s tutorials..I know most of us have seen/read those, but if you haven’t you must! I also came across this one, which had very thorough, easy to follow instructions and a long list of different “projects” or effect tutorials..none too frighteningly long. I would LOVE it if anyone could recommend any good tutorial sites or videos or whatever!

I fell in love with the kimono dress when I saw Val wearing it on my.secondlife.free, so I tp’d to C’est la vie and lo and behold… there was a pretty lil’ “P” up on the lucky board just waiting for me! That’s something that never happens!

TP to C’est la vie Lucky Boards!

The only thing I wore with this dress was my SLink bare feet, exactly as I would do irl.

skin: laqroki
hair: maitreya
rake & pose: rc cluster (only on marketplace now)

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)
plant on top of desk: flowey – cup planter 7 prims-quote on the cup: The sun was warm but the wind was chill. You know how it is with an April day. –Robert Frost-FREE!! The Seasons Hunt
floor vase: lonesome.bird glassbottle tree lamp FREE nordari Marketplace SL-touch each bottle to make it light, touch the birdy he will sing 🙂

Hello everyone! It feels like I’ve been away forever and I’m excited and hopeful to start blogging again. Thanks for the kind words while I was away, I’ve missed my blog and flickr buddies! I just needed a break badly and to put more focus on my rl…always a challenge to keep things in perspective…i mean..who wouldn’t rather be shopping and modeling designer clothes than changing poopy diapers and folding laundry?

My pocketbook needed a break too..Second Life fashion blogging is hands down, for me, the most expensive hobby/interest I’ve ever had…and it’s the designers fault…yall just make things too damn beautiful and irresistable!!! I’ve had lots of extra time to play and explore sl during my break..and i have acquired some amazing freebies that I wanted to share with you right away, while hopefully they are still available.

I’ve been doing a lot of shopping on The Marketplace. I figure it’s the sl equivalent to the Home Shopping Network since you can sit on your sl sofa in the privacy of your own home, cave, treehouse, spaceship…where ever it is that you call home in this crazy pixel world we live in.

So many awesome deals and freebies on the marketplace…you can modify your search to pull things up from lowest to highest priced…or you can look in the 0-10 Linden category..it’s a lot of fun, especially when you come across something good…
