…bring out the gimp

Wow, time flies. I can’t believe it’s already been 30 days since starting my photoshop CS6 trial. When I opened it to edit this post it told me it would be the last use unless i wanted to purchase it for a gazillion dollars. So i minimized it and I plan on never turning off or restarting my computer again, lol. I’m sure that plan won’t work so I did download GIMP for this computer. I have an older version of ps on my old mac so if I can’t get used to GIMP I’m going to be computer hopping again. GIMP. What a name for a program. Isn’t that slang for a  person with missing limbs or something like that? (please if you have missing limbs don’t think I’m making fun or anything). And if my memory serves me correctly, wasn’t that what they called the leather-masked somdomizer in Pulp Fiction? I just think it’s an odd name and I’m mourning the loss of my trial so this is all crazy talk anyway. :p


At least I still can play with shadows in sl, knock on wood.

my memory did serve me correctly..click here to see what I think of when I hear the word gimp…it’s a clip so make sure your volume isn’t blaring. it could be nsfw too..i guess it depends where you work. xx

lipstick

It was love at first sight for me when I tried on The Lady Swing Skirt from The Secret Store.  Designer Maylee Oh says that she was inspired by 50’s fashion to create these long, lovely mesh skirts. Skirts include an optional fabric rose belt and are available in 7 beautiful versions. (optional belt and all skirt versions can be viewed here)

I went on a hunt for the perfect pair of earrings for this ensemble, and on my favorite hunting grounds…marketplace sl. I saw the black and white stripes on these earrings and thought they would look really cool with the skirt. The price was decent so I clicked “add to cart” and the product info came up. Well let me tell you..these are more than just your average earrings.

Created by Maxi Gossamer they are 100% mesh and scripted to open a menu when touched. From that menu you can choose from 12 different textures, or resize them. You can also edit them regularly to adjust the placement. Browse through her amazing marketplace store, Maxi Gossamer Jewellery, here. I was unable to find an inworld store so if you find one and  have a moment, please leave the store url in a comment on this post. 🙂


Beauty, to me, is about being comfortable in your own skin. That, or a kick-ass red lipstick.  Gweneth Paltrow

Happy Anniversary to The Secret Store

New at The Secret Store.. The Copacati Highwaist Pants and Tucked Jacket.

Unique highwaist mesh pants and a tucked jacket to pair with them, perfect for a unique retro-futuristic look.

~click here for taxicab to The Secret Store~

Maylee Oh is one of the most amazing designers in second life. I adore literally every one of her creations…this outfit being no exception. I’ve never worn anything like this, it is so unique and of course very well made. I’ve been wearing it for a few days now, you know…blogging when I’m able to and battling the crash monster. But I’ve received so many compliments while wearing it. It made me feel sophisticated and stylish, especially with the high platforms from Pixel Mode and the classy short do from LaViere.

It was hard for me to decide on shoes, because flats look really cute with this outfit as well..and it was also very hard to decide on which color pants to wear ..there are 6 vibrant colors to choose from.

Oh..I guess I should mention…in celebration of The Secret Store‘s second anniversary she has marked everything in the store (not including mesh) 50% off!  This sale will last until Friday so make it a point to go..her clothes are classics..they will always be in style.

I wanted to post a close-up of Glam Affair‘s Cassiopea skin available at The Dressing Room right now for 70 L$! I’ve been wanting that skin so badly so I was so excited to have the opportunity to get one for such a great price. It comes with blonde, brown, and red brow options..and the perfect amount of freckles dusted across her nose. I’m wearing [glow] studio pin up liner on in this shoot, but the makeup colors she’s wearing are pretty neutral so you won’t be very limited in what you can wear it with.

Poppy Returns from Outer Space

or as we sometimes call it, real life.

Pictured above: Maylee Oh’s new Babydoll Dresses from The Secret Store. Available in 7 different prints/textures for any mood or look.

I couldn’t believe when I looked at my blog a week or so ago and realized that I’ve been away nearly 1 year! My how time flies..and I’ve missed blogging but it seemed every time I logged into sl my graphics were going from bad to worse. I tried to take some pics and it wouldn’t even let me go to the ultra setting..i was heartbroken.

I tried to upgrade my Mac. It was a 10.5.8 and to be able to upgrade, i needed to first upgrade to a disc that apple no longer sells. I found some independent sellers on amazon with 50/50 reviews..a few of the bad reviews stating that they had lost total use of their computer when trying the 59 dollar upgrade and of course, this made me very apprehensive.

Like I have my entire life when I have a problem I called my Dad and asked if he could help me investigate and find a way to do it. The next day my amazing Dad brings me over a new iMac. I was so overwhelmed, I couldn’t believe it. He said it was my birthday gift and he knows because of my special situation at home that my computing time is my biggest “outlet”…

So now…finally…I have shadows! I was so excited I cried, lol. I know that’s so corny but…whateva.

I was going through my inventory and I have nearly a years worth of things that generous designers have sent me to blog for them..plus since it’s turned into a mesh world while I’ve been away you can imagine the shopping that needs to be done! But I’m really going to make an effort not to let my blog make me feel overwhelmed and deadliney…I want it to be enjoyable for me and for you! Nevertheless, I do have some catching up to do..going to model some of the review copies and new things and freebies while I play with the lighting and see what I can do..be patient with me..while I’ve been gone I’ve renewbed…it really happens!

One more thing I’d like to add..well there are many things I’d like to add but I’m trying not to make this any lengthier than it already is..If you’ve contacted me and  I haven’t responded please forgive me..i literally fell off the face of sl for a while so I’m sure many messages and other things were overlooked and/or lost. I’ll be checking daily now so if you’d like to get in touch with me please drop me a notecard in world or leave me a message here.

I’m in a pickle with my flickr..I can’t remember my screen name, password, the email acct. I used to open it..on my old computer it just stayed logged on all the time..not now of course so I cannot get into my flickr 😦 Not sure if I should make a new one or keep on with the pain in the ass process of trying to make some sort of “breakthrough” with it.

Okay, I’ll leave you on that note lol…Thank you for all of your support and encouraging messages while I was away..it really means a lot. ♥

/me kicks rl in the balls

Time has not been on my side lately and there are so many beautiful things that I want to blog. To be honest I’ve been having thoughts of calling it quits for a while..not because I don’t love it, but because of rl obligations.

I still want to try to post when I can though…like Confucius says, “It does not matter how slow you go so long as you don’t stop”.

taking a good look at myself

These shoes, the Kookie Chic Heels, were one of my first “biggie” shoe purchases…I had to have them…even as I was putting them on for this shoot I was oohin’ and ahin’ all over like it was the first time I’d ever seen them. Kookie Lemon is retiring them, plus some other older styles forever..but not without first giving us the opportunity to get them for half off…click here to TP to Kookie!

How quickly our sl favorites become “vintage” items it seems…hell…how quickly we become “vintage”, lol….
So this lotd is some “vintage” sl mixed with some new sl, like The Secret Store’s hot new summer beach shorts.

romantic getaway

While rustling through my virtual closet trying to figure out what was I going to blog next I came upon the lovely new dress, Boheme,  from The Secret Store’s The Cellar, and the search stopped there. My friend Flower nailed it when she said “this is the most beautiful dress on the grid”.  With it’s flowing silky hem line and low cut cowl chest prim I think I have to agree.  And, perfect for a romantic getaway 🙂

lady and the tram

I have another new favorite hair! Lohan by Lelutka..very sexy I couldn’t wait to wear it. They’ve been adding a lot to their hair collection lately and I’m not complaining one bit.

I wanted to show you a close up shot of the tram necklace…I think it’s just beautiful….as is everything else in the store. This necklace comes in a long and short version (sold separately). I thought it went perfectly with the new Chiffon skirt from The Secret Store…”an outfit to fall in love in”*

There is so much I’ve wanted to blog lately but because of rl obligations I just haven’t had the time. If you’ve given me review copies and I haven’t posted yet, please be patient with me! You can even give me a nudge if you like and say, “hey b*&ch, why you no blog my s&*t???” jk..but do feel free to contact me about anything 🙂
