first sunrise

lara ethereal fin

It’s no surprise to me that I fell madly in love with the Maitreya Mesh Body, Lara, the moment I put it on. And the fact that it comes pre-packaged with 10 Glam Affair skin tones, just about the only line I wear anymore, was enough to make me buy Lara with the faith of not even getting a demo.

There are a ton of features and freebies and I’m almost done with the post that touches on all of that. I feel like I haven’t blogged in forever so I wanted to do a quick post this morning. To tell you the truth I was so excited about Lara when I did the photo shoot I kind of went a little crazy with the pictures and when I sat down to create the post my brain felt like it was about to explode.

I also wanted to remind you to pick up your free New Year Group Gift, Hatsuhi  from Tableau Vivant  (worn in this post). Hatsuhi means “first sunrise” in Japanese..a very fitting name for this beautiful gift. Thank you Tableau Vivant! Make sure you’re wearing your group tag and click on the sign at the mainstore, here. It is absolutely stunning and you get every shade that they have! Put it at the top of your to-do list because I have no idea how long this gift will be available.

ONE MORE DAY of COLLABOR88 JULY!

safari final3

It’s so “me” to blog the July collabor88 items on August the 5th. Luckily, you have until tomorrow if you haven’t been yet, or if you want to go back and get more. The sim is closed on the 7th of every month so the designers can prepare it for the new month’s collection which is always debuted on the 8th of each month. They encourage the designers to put their collabor88 items up in their stores afterwards, but it’s ultimately up to the designer, so if you’re really in love with something, play it safe and try to get it while it’s there. Learn from my pain!

~tp to collabor88 before it’s too late!~

I fell in love with this romper by Mutresse. Every aspect of it is color-change, from the piping on the neckline down to the ties on the sides of the legs. Just add on the hud (pictured below) and see all of the awesome combinations that are possible.

keeping it simple

I went ahead and stuck this picture in last minute because it so depicts the way that I’m feeling right now. Maybe someone else would see it another way, but I just imagine sitting there overwhelmed with so much work to do, wanting to be anywhere else but there, and just “sighhhhhhh”. No idea why I see it that way. 😉

Library 2 final corrected

I dug deep into my sl closet and came across my Kookie Armada boots. I did want to wear something newer, something I’ve purchased since my return, but I loved the way they went with the look, the skirt in particular. It’s young and fun and comfy…and if sl were real these are definitely the type of shoes I would be wearing with as much running around the grid as I’ve been doing.

Library Final

NEW Braid Bracelets from Izzie’s in a variety of colors to choose from, and The Basic Purse, NEW, by Imeka, purchased at kustom9.

Final Library purse and bracelet

I didn’t plan it, but all of these little gold hearts started showing up in my accessories. I relented at the end and searched for heart earrings to finish this simplistic look off..The ones worn are an old gift from Caroline’s Jewelry. To be honest I haven’t investigated Caroline’s Jewelry since I came back…but it’s on my list!

Someday..

Hello??? Is anybody there? I highly doubt it. I can’t believe 2 years have passed by so quickly. I’m at a point in my real life where there is no way I can have the time to do the sort of sl blog that I dream of doing. Hopefully some day I’ll be able to do that, but not at this point in time.

I miss it so, so very much! I’ve only recently returned to second life. I not only quit blogging but I stopped playing all together. Then one day a couple weeks ago, I downloaded Firestorm and now all of a sudden, I find myself back.

I’ve been spending my time trying to get caught up in this new, mesh world. I really need to start applying the brakes on my shopping now, lol. At least for a week. A business week. Baby steps. 🙂

I’ve been looking at my blog quite a lot lately. I had never in my whole second life used the outfit option…boy do i wish I had saved all of the outfits and looks I blogged over all that time. I’m even going back and recreating some of my favorite looks and saving them.

I really hope to post occasionally and even snap a few pics to add. What I would really love to do someday is a freebie blog. It never ceases to amaze me, the gems you can find for free if you look. This post in particular I was looking at this morning thinking, “omg..everything in this entire shoot is free!” An entire furnished cottage, with very cute, stylish, shabby chic decor. This has always been one of my all-time favorite blogs…I aspire to do something on the line of that….Someday.

Please leave a message and say hi..I’m curious, and quite doubtful, if anyone at all ever stops by here anymore. You’ll be seeing me again, dammit! Well, that is unless I go broke first :/ Wait a minute. I already am broke..ok then…You’ll be seeing me again, dammit!

I hope everyone is doing happy and well in both lives, and maybe I’ll run into you on the grid sometime. I mean literally…run into you. My connection sucks! :p

❤pp

These pics were from my very last photo shoot before leaving sl (around 2 years ago)…they were never posted.

Ok, then…it seems WordPress has changed things up a bit..I tried to post a style card and it was all over the place. It looks like I’m going to have to give myself a crash course on the “New and Hopefully Improved” WordPress. Who knows, I may truly make a fresh start and go with a different blog site altogether. That’ll show ’em for not letting me post my style card! Hmpft! :p jk.

(Edit) Ok, I think I’ve finally managed to post my style card..no links posted because I haven’t had time to check all of the LM’s..I know a lot of stores have moved since I’ve been away. I’m pretty sure you can still find most everything listed though.

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)
