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.

NEW @ Mimikri Kit “DEA”

It feels like it’s been forever since I’ve gotten a post out! I guess in sl time it has been…nearly a week I think? I think if it’s more than a week you get a fine from the blog police 😮  Hopefully they’ll factor in that I put together 2 different looks with Mimikri Kit’s newest creation, “DEA”


“DEA” Rigged Mesh Separates. Sequin Sweaters and matching Skinny Leggings Set available in 9 different colors to mix and/or match. Click here to teleport to Mimikri.

(above) Mesh Accessorizing; Mandala‘s CEEKEEEY Earrings paired with LaGyo’s new Pan Collar in silver.

(above) LaGyo Rose Headgear Hat; you can change the texture on the hat, the ribbon, and the flower, worn with the classic Maitreya Long Scarf.

I must admit that one reason it’s taken me so long to complete this post is, I’ve been playing around with windlight settings. There are so many amazing ones available to download. Strawberry Singh has very simple directions on how to download them and add them to your sky settings, here. You’ll also see that she has some of her own wl settings available to download, plus a list of links to some of her favorite ones.

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

wondering about the strange title of this post? I can’t take credit for it..I read it somewhere before…I can’t remember where, but it seems like it was on a blog..I googled it to try and give credit to whoever said it…couldn’t find anything though..
I just always remembered it..I liked it..I like the image/scenario it conjures up in my mind..and when I tried on Just You Jewels’ ensemble for the Chic Limited Birthday Event… I thought of the phrase at once…

I’ve always loved outfits with nautical touches to them..if you’ve followed my blog for a while you can probably recall an outfit or two I’ve done in that fashion…Kyoot’s new Sailor’s Song top was one of her FLF items this week..I know that a lot of times the designers will leave them out a little longer so you may want to rush over there an see…her other FLF tops are awesome too…(stay tuned for those :p)

I’m wearing one of my BOOM demi edition shrugs again..they are available in so many colors and the perfect finishing touch for an outfit..you’ll be seeing me in these a lot..thinking of doing some sort of post with a whole bunch of my very favorite things..trying to think of a fun way to do it..but there are some items in my sl wardrobe that I just couldn’t live without..some that I can think of just off the top of my head..my kyoot leg warmers, my aoharu white button down top, these shrugs..I’m sure it would be a long list if I really started thinking about it lol…maybe a “my favorite things” series like Oprah :p

This adorable Mother Goose’s skin is free! Just join the group in-world and check the notices…you get 8 skins…4 diff m/u’s all with & without teeth…or supposed to be..as you can see in row 2, there were 2 teethy versions instead of one of each for that m/u. I’m sure you could contact the creator if you wanted that skin in the non teethy version…

Day number 4 of the skin fair…I hope it’s getting easier for everyone to get in. Luckily it lasts through March 6th so I think everyday will get better and better…late night is always a good time..but hell..this is sl…my late night could be your moring, noon, or night lol..so I guess that was a silly thing to say 😉

Once you finally get into the skin fair..make the YS&YS booth one of your first stops. They are launching the beautiful Susan, worn in this post, and also Liu, and she will be featured in my next post..at first I thought Susan was my favorite but I’ve started putting Liu’s look together and now I like her best lol..either way they are both gorgeous skins and they are at the Vanity Universe Skin Fair.

Susan is available in 14 different m/u’s, with cleavage, hairbase, freckles, lashes, and brow options…

moreNEWmynerva

I’m proud to show you Mynerva’s other new skin, Jenny. She is available in the same shades of Kianna that I showed you in the last post…and available in the same eyeliner options as well. (see photo below)

Each skin comes with a cleavage option and a no brow option. In this post I’m wearing the no brow skin with the Mynerva Dark Brown Brows tattoo.

I had mentioned before that it has been since the middle of last year since Rhapsody Wilde has had a new release. A few of you have contacted me and said that you are just now trying Mynerva for the first time and loving it…Yay!!! This makes me so happy and excited that you’ve “found” it (Mynerva). You can look at these skins and tell how special and different they are. The faces of each of her skins have their own “look” their own personality almost..I’m totally in love with them, her new ones being no exception.

They will both be available at the Vanity Universe Skin Fair..that starts tomorrow afternoon. (all urls will be posted tomorrow)

Kianna by Mynerva

OMG my readers have wowwed me..So many of you are so good at the guessing game! Yes it is Mynerva’s brand new Kianna which will debut at the Vanity Universe Skin Fair on February 20th!

As usual Rhapsody Wilde has blown me away with her new creations..yes plural..theres more to come! Kianna is my very favorite though..very beautiful. Girl Next Door mixed with Centerfold maybe? That’s a good combination in a skin! Someone had  commented asking if the nose had been photoshopped and no, none of it has. Its extremely well made and I can’t wait for you to try it!!!

Below from left to right; Kianna (regular), Kianna (smokey), and Kianna (raven) all modeled in Shade 5…

Kianna in Shades 1-6…also available in 3 shades of grey.(not shown in this post)

The Vanity Universe Skin Fair starts Sunday February 20th @ 3 pm (I’m pretty sure that is the correct time) I don’t have the urls yet but I will post them as soon as I get them..or you can also check their website, here.
