Don’t They Know Staring is Impolite?

Don't They Know Staring is Impolite?

Why….why…..why! Why is it impossible to have a snack without the dog hearing it and coming to mooch! If there’s one thing I’ve learned about having a dog is that from the moment they walk in the house for the first time, they are NEVER to be fed a nibble! Of any kind! It’s one of those things that can never be undone! Once you’ve given them one little morsel, of pretty much anything, they will forever sit at your feet and wait for the next one! I live alone with 2 dogs and I have to sneak into the kitchen to get a snack!! But they always hear me. I can walk in for a glass of water and nothing, they don’t even wake up! But, open a plastic bag or open the fridge and they’re up and over in a blink! My newest dog, Amber, had never been given treats by me…until the day she got sick and needed six pills a day! So out comes the little treat to get that pill down….and now…she’s as bad as the other one! At least neither of them drool. Man I hate drooling dogs! So, what I’ve started doing is just not snacking….just to save myself the annoyance of their staring. Maybe I can patent it as a diet…a sure way to lose those unwanted pounds. Once you know you’ll have a dog or two staring intently at you, it takes the fun right out of a snack!

First off tonight I’d like you to zoom in on flickr and take a gander at the incredible tattoo from Pimp My Sh!t! It’s the Never Cry Wolf tattoo, which is unisex….and it’s free…yes…free! It’s a hunt gift out for the Fluffy and Fierce Event, which runs until September 30. You just head over to the F & F event and stop in at the PMS booth to grab your hunt hint and the main store land mark and then go get it! Easy as that..you end up with this tattoo in three ink tones and compatibility with the classic avatars and the TMP andf Omega compatible mesh bodies! It’s seen here on the Maitreya, Lara mesh body.

I live in a Canadian province that has a few quirky names for things that no other place has! One of them is the bunnyhug! I’ve spoken of it before….but this time around I have found the ultimate bunnyhug in Second Life! It’s from Etchaflesh Clothing and Corsetry and it’s the Misfit Hoodie Darkness! That’s the official name…but to me it’s a bunnyhug, in its truest form! The zipper, the pockets, and the hood make it that! To me, it’s perfect. It’s rigged for the SLink, Belleza, and Maitreya mesh bodies and it’s HUD driven with four areas to customize with lots of colours. There’s a bunch of different packs to choose from so there’s something for everyone!

The ROUGH RIDER Boots from !APHORISM! can be a mainstay in anyone’s inventory! I think everyone needs a great pair of kick ass boots, and these are those! This is the charcoal colour, and they come in three other colours too!

My eye shadow is from the Romance Me Eyeshadow set from Veechi. It has nine colours and is compatible with classic avatars and Lelutka, Catwa, and Genesis Labs mesh heads!

The Deadman’s Collar is from nefarious inventions!

The Basic Colour Tights, dark and natural are from G Field. They’re Omega compatible plus system layers for classic avatars.

The hair from Dura Hair is Boys and Girls 42 from the dark pack.

As always, I’m wearing the Nelly mesh head from Genesis Labs, the Lara mesh body from Maitreya, and the elegant hands from SLink.

I’m at the lovely Newton sim, home of NX-Nardcotix, for these pictures.

All Hell for a Basement

All Hell for a Basement

And now I’m free to go
But time cannot remove
The only life I know
Now only time will prove
Yes, only time will prove

If I have lost my way
‘Cause I hear a tale
About a heaven in Alberta
Where they’ve got all hell for a basement

All Hell For A Basement ~Big Sugar~

There’s a few lines from one of my favourite songs! That’s about all I can offer you on this chilly Sunday morning!

I love this top from Stories&Co. by Flowey! The Lisbeth Tee looks like a few of my favourites in real life! It’s a well worn top with some incredible illustrations done by Celeste ‘Jim’ Forwzy. It comes in ten solid colours and five prints, is compatible with the Slink and Maitreya mesh bodies, and all perfectly comfy for a Sunday at home with movies and popcorn!! It’s available now at the current round of n21.

And what’s the best thing to wear on a Sunday at home in front of the TV? Why leggings of course! For this I opted for the Mermaid Leggings from {MYNX}! They come in six colours and are TMP, Maitreya, SLink, Belleza mesh bodies, and classic avatars compatible. Love!!

The pose I’m using here is from the Bowties are Cool pack from don’t freak out!.

I want to mention where I’m at here in this photo! You all know I was basking in the sunshine at Summerwind South for most of the summer….well Summerwind South is no more, but I now have a fabulous cabin on the beach at Winters Wind! There’s two new sims to explore at Summers Wind and Winters Wind. There’s residential, commercial, and recreational areas for everyone to explore, plus some really great areas just begging for picture taking! I think I’ve found my forever home! 🙂

I’m still in the process of moving in but a few things I have behind me are the Himalayan Salt Lamp from [free bird]. If you want a diverse collection of gachas, [free bird] is where you want to be! The leather chair and pillow is from floorplan. / brocante.. The Pedestal Fan in bronze is from [tmk] and the Vintage Frame/lemonade is from tarte.

As always, I’m using the Maitreya, Lara mesh body, the Nelly 2.0 mesh head from Genesis Labs, and the flat feet from SLink.

What’s Your Name?

What's Your Name

I love seeing all the different names in Second Life! I started SL in January of 2012, which unfortunately, was after SL stopped using last names! So, like all the others after that, I’m just ‘resident’! I always type ‘resident’ with a small ‘r’, because I don’t consider it part of my name. I’m TinLiz Winterstorm…..and proud of it! I know TinLiz is an odd name! I’d like to say it was a well thought out name that I had in my mind for a long time. But, that’s not the way it is! When first joining Second Life, when it asked for username, all the ones I had in mind were used, and I didn’t want a number in my name. So, after oodles of tries I finally managed to find a name that is kind of like what I initially wanted, and without a number. After this many years, I finally realized that ‘TinLiz’ is actually a combination of two nicknames I was called when I was a kid. And once I realized that, I started to really like this name. I do prefer ‘Liz” but TinLiz works too! Or even ‘Tin’…I don’t mind that either. Once I put on a last name I liked, I then became who I am in Second Life. Which is pretty much the real me. I don’t have the mental energy to be fake or some kind of pretend person. I’m just me! So you can call me Tin, or you can call me TinLiz, or you can call me Liz…..but please don’t call me ‘resident’!

I’m a little confused with the Fluffy and Fierce Event! Not by what it is….but in how to pick one or the other! So, I’ve picked one of each to show you! Firstly, I have on the Sydney Dress from [QE]! Sidney is fierce and also really pretty! It’s HUD driven with eight colours for the skirt layers and four colours for the top, plus it has three areas to customize. It comes in five standard sizes plus fitted versions for the Maitreya and SLink mesh bodies. While you’re at the F & F Event grab the hints at each booth, then head to the main store to find your free gift!

Also, at the Fluffy and Fierce Event is Pimp My Sh!t with two fluffy and two fierce tattoos exclusive for the event. I’m wearing the Fluffy Tiger tattoo, in medium ink tone, which is perfectly detailed and compatible with the classic avatars, plus Omega and TMP mesh bodies!

Take a gander at these absolutely stunning pumps!! The Krista Stilettos from NX-Nardcotix come in sixteen colours and are compatible with the SLink, Maitreya, and Belleza feet. They have beautiful detail, rich colours, and a unique style that stand out from the rest!

These nail appliers rock! There’s sixteen Pussycat Claws nail applier packs to choose from….and in each pack there’s one claw going to opposite direction, which goes on the thumb…a la kitty cat! Hello Dave always has something fun and exciting to paint your SLink or Omega compatible nails with!

The Miss CoCo hair, browns pack is from Vanity Hair and available at the current round of Hair O Logy.

The Mata Hari, high neck necklace from Maxi Gossamer Jewellery is a must have!

And as always I’m wearing the Nelly mesh head from Genesis Labs, the Lara mesh body from Maitreya , and the high feet and elegant hands from SLink.

The poses are from the Marilyn Series from an lar [poses].

I made a trip to Hazardous for these pictures.

The Truth is Out There!

The Truth is Out There!

You bet it is! I”m a believer! Aliens? Yea….there’s no way that us humans are the only intelligent beings in the universe! And plus I’ve heard a few stories, from completely believable people, about their close encounters of the second or third kind! Ghosts! Yup…been there and done that! My family lived in an old house that had lots of odd things happen! From strange tapping noises in the night, a hand print on a window that couldn’t be removed, and voices heard on tape recordings that weren’t heard while the taping went on. And there was always that feeling of being watched….I was always scared to be alone in that house. Sasquatch, Yeti, or Bigfoot? I’ve not had any personal encounters with any of them, but that doesn’t mean they’re not there! I don’t think we know about every living thing on this planet yet, though! Loch Ness Monster or Ogopogo? I’m not sure…but again, who knows! By the way, Ogopogo is a serpent like creature that makes it’s home in Lake Okanagan in British Columbia.

I’m a believer! I like to keep an open mind when it comes to things like this! Tune in next time when I talk about conspiracy theories, that always makes for good conversations!

I always like going for a more masculine look! I like ball caps, jean jackets, and a good slouchy guy’s pose! So to make it a little more feminine, I decided on the Parley Boots from FLIPPANT, for my footwear! They have a nice sturdy heel with leather fringe, they’re compatible with classic avatars, SLink high, and Belleza feet, plus, they’re HUD driven with eight colours!

My cool slouchy guy’s pose is Neverwhere from the Die a Little, male/unisex pose set from Le Poppycock! This set of six poses is perfect for the guys, but the girls can rock them too!

My nail appliers are from the Once Bitten 7 pack from Hello Dave! There’s twelve packs of Once Bitten available, each with a different base colour. They’re all mini packs, containing five textures! All Hello Dave nail appliers are SLink and Omega compatible!

The Amie Sweater from Slipper Originals is under my jacket! Which is unfortunate since the back has a huge heart cut out, that really shows off a sexy back! The applier for the top is compatible with SLink, Maitreya, and Omega, plus it comes with a system layer for classic avatars! Applier clothes are sooo versatile!!

The Jessie #13, blacks, hair with a snapback( it’s a ball cap to me) is a really great look! It’s from Besom & Flite and available at the current round of The Arcade Gacha Event!

The Raven Ring Set for the elegant SLink hands is from RealEvil Industires! They’re HUD driven with lots of metal and jewel colour options!

I love the Luxe Box September jeans from Blueberry! As the name says, they’re from the September round of Luxe Box!

The Aria Denim Jacket, Black, RARE is from VIVENINE ryvolter! It’s fitted for the Lara mesh body from Maitreya and it’s from a gacha, which is right at the front door to the left when you enter the main store!

As always, I’m wearing the Lara mesh body from Maitreya, the Nelly 2.0 mesh head from Genesis Labs, and the elegant hands and high feet from SLink.

I dropped in at Batterie Beach for these shots!

Fall is Here, In All It’s Glory!

Fall is Here, In All It's Glory!

How beautifully the leaves grow old. How full of light and colour are their last days!

~John Burrows~ naturalist

Indeed, how beautiful autumn is! It’s this time of year that the earth holds on to it’s last bit of summer’s life, only to fall to the ground in the fall breezes! We’ve had a few frosts here so the leaves are quickly turning yellows, browns, and reds! We have a lot of quaking aspen where I am and the gorgeous yellow leaves, white bark, and golden glow of the sun makes for a perfect picture! Tis the season of hot apple cider, pumpkin pie, hot soup and biscuits for lunch, and a warm bunnyhug for the evening stroll with the dogs! Oh…by the way…it’ll always be a bunnyhug…not a hoodie, to me!

I’m dressed for a warm fall day here, with the Emma Cold Shoulder Top from DECOY! I love all the fall colours that are so warm and cozy looking! This top is fitted for the Maitreya, Lara mesh body and comes in eleven colours to choose from, this is the brick tone! It’s available now at Collabor88!!

I just adore these boots! The Boho Boots, Fall Set from More Than Ever are perfectly classic for fall!! There’s no mesh feet needed and they come with a three colour HUD, all gorgeous fall tones! They’re available now at the Spoonful of Sugar Festival, which supports Doctors Without Borders! Ever, from More Than Ever, is generously giving 100% of the price of these boots to the cause!

The walls and floor are worn so you can set it all up anywhere you like and it’s all easily editable! Also, the wall and floor are texture change via drop down menu with three texture options!
