Im totally in love with Truth‘s new Holly. If I weren’t a blogger and had a standard “look”, I would be wearing this hairstyle for a while. Hell, I blog so slowly that I have been wearing this hairstyle for a while, lol. I think in the months to come we’ll be seeing a lot of “lobbed” hair style’s like this. They were very hot on the spring preview runways during fashion week.

Loulou…NEW from {Essences}

Lulu 1 final

It seems as if it doesn’t take long to re-newb. Well, not for myself anyway. Maybe I just have a blogger’s “need to know NOW” mentality and when I’m away I feel as if I’ve missed out on the greatest deal ever in the history of second life. For example, say you’re away, oh, I don’t know…a few weeks for the holidays and while you’re away the most awesome product ever was released in sl..oh wait a minute. That happened. It seems while I was away the Maitreya Mesh Body was released with all of it’s perks and collaborations with the some of the biggest creators in sl. That will be my next post, but here’s the scoop on it in the meantime, just in case you’ve been under a different rock than myself. I have A LOT to organize and catch up on so as usual, if you’ve sent review copies please be patient. I think I’m just going to go down my inventory and take pictures of things as I organize it. Maybe picking up new releases here and there along the way..you know a girl’s gotta stay “in the know”.

FIN alaskametro 1

Alaskametro has added some awesome new items to her collection. She is revamping a lot of her creations from the “prim era” so that they can be worn as appliers on mesh bodies…yay! The metallic Giselle II bikini is one of her newest revamps.

Paired with wide legged Miami Linens from BOOM! and the FREE Group Gift hair from Tableau Vivant I thought it was a very glam, sexy and sophisticated look. It made me think of something you would see a star wearing in paparazzi photos.

FIN2 alaskametro

The Tableau Vivant FREE Group Gift hair is what I like to call a “high-end gift”..and we all know that those are the extremely nice, well made gifts that we would actually buy at full price, or maybe even one that we would want to buy at full price but couldn’t afford, lol.  The gift includes different HUD’s to give you the choice of every color possible and it is just beautiful. Thank you so much Miss Marilyn Magic!

Oh, and did I mention there is no fee to join the group? Just click here and tp to Tableau Vivant, join the group and then pick up your Free Gift. ❤

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.

Maitreya Top final

There are so many awesome fashion events happening right now in sl..as always, lol. I’m not complaining, although it is quite addictive. I’m always afraid I’m going to miss out on some “once-in-a-second-lifetime” deal…and I won’t even get started discussing the Gacha machines!

Maitreya top Mutresse Clutch and Lion Cuff final

above: One of Lethal Couture’s kustom9 creations for August; The Lion Head Cuff in black and gold (other color options and items from this creator available at event).
The Mutresse Muci Clutch is a must have for your sl wardrobe. It comes with an attachable hud (shown below) that gives you 13 different color choices for the leather, and 4 different metal choices for the clasp, chain and studs. Also, 2 versions of clutch included in folder; 1 regular and 1 for Slink casual hands.

I’m still in my Slink Physique..still trying to get used to it. I don’t feel “comfortable in my own skin” yet…literally, lol. It also makes me sad to think of all the things in my inventory that I can’t wear with it. I see a lot of things happening quickly..as I mentioned in an earlier post, I’m seeing clothing appliers all over marketplace. A lot of the the applier items that I’ve seen remind me of the outfits that we first tried to make on the old sl clothing sliders. I’ve seen a few cute things too, and some beautiful lingerie.
Will our pre-mesh items become obsolete? Does anyone wear their old outfits and/or accessories anymore? And if they do, will they be arrested by the MESH police?

still chasing shadows

Have I ever mentioned how much I wish I had the time to blog more? I think I’ve mentioned it a time or two…hundred. Now I have a new obstacle..to take the pretty shadowy location pics, I have to be plugged directly into my modem..I just can’t seem to get a strong enough connection via my router. I can still do the white background without a problem. I’d say out of about twenty or so pics taken outside of the beautiful Milk Motion main store, only 2 turned out somewhat decent..meaning with no weird lines or flaws.(see photo below)

That wouldn’t be a huge problem for a lot of people, but in my house there are these 2 really short people who love to play on the computers and they go cuckoo when they can’t get on youtube or disney.com. I find it best to just keep the peace.

The scarf in this picture is one of the many amazing group gifts at [whatever]. There is a 300 L$ fee to join, but it’s more than worth all of the group gifts you receive. I tp’d over late last night and all of the gifts are still available. You can view a few in this recent post, but there are more not even pictured.

a walk through Mayfair

If you haven’t already taken a walk through Mayfair, you should put it on your to-do list. This beautiful all-mesh sim is  home to mon tissue and celoe. I think it’s perfect for taking pics, especially if you play with the windlight settings and shadows…you can get all sorts of different looks and shadow effects…which means..less time in photoshop…which means to me…less time computer-hopping.

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. 🙂
