Plastic Paradise

Plastic Paradise

What is there to say about this plastic world we live in? Everything is disposable, it’s become a ‘throw away’ society. Where is ‘away’ though? It all goes somewhere. Just because it’s not in your possession anymore doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist. It’s too easy to toss something that’s not wanted and not worry about where it goes. The truly sad part about a disposable society is that everything then becomes disposable. When human relationships are so easily tossed aside and what used to be important in life has become so much trash, we’re left with a hollow and broken society with values and empathy becoming a thing of the past. Where do we go from here?

That’s kind of depressing, but it’s my thought of the moment. I hope everyone is enjoying their day, regardless of where you are and what time of day it is. It’s an early Saturday morning for me and it’s a nice clear morning out there, but going to be a hot one. But all that is irrelevant because in Second Life it’s always as sunny as you want it to be and everyone is smiling and happy! Well, not all, there’s lots of drama and negativity out there that’s hard to take, but I choose to stay away from it and enjoy my Second Life!

Today’s look is all about plastic, and with good reason. The new round of Collabor88 is open for business and the theme for this month is, you guessed it, ‘Plastic Fantastic’! First off is the ‘Aada Skirts and Jackets’ from LEGAL INSANITY! Don’t be shy girls, they both come with underthings to cover up a bit if you like, so the opacity isn’t a factor in your person comfort! They’re fitted for the SLink, Belleza, and Maitreya(seen here) mesh bodies and come in a wide variety of colours. One other thing that you need to know is that this round is the Birthday round for Collabor88, so expect extra long line ups to get in and oodles of guest designers! You’ll find the full gallery of participating designers on the Seraphim website.

Also at Collabor88 is the ‘Josie Bootie’ from NX-Nardcotix! These are adorable! The main part of the bootie is clear with polka dots and the trim, heel and sole are made of a good sturdy plastic, for your walking enjoyment! There’s ten colours to choose from and they fit the SLink(seen here), Belleza, and Maitreya high feet.

The August releases are out at Argrace and I ran over the pick them up! The ‘SAYAKA’ hair is a wash and wear style that any lover of short hair has to have!

As always, I’m wearing the ‘Luna’ skin in ‘peche’ tone from Avada, on the ‘Lilo’ bento mesh head from Catwa and the Lara(bento hands included) mesh body from Maitreya, along with the high feet from SLink.

This pose is from the ‘Journeys’ set of poses from Marukin.

I’m using the ‘Hype-Beast Backdrop 03 from the Hype-Beast’ gacha set from [Bad Unicorn].

Born to Run

Born to Run

Wendy let me in I wanna be your friend
I want to guard your dreams and visions
Just wrap your legs ’round these velvet rims
and strap your hands ‘cross my engines
Together we could break this trap
We’ll run till we drop, baby we’ll never go back
Oh-oh, will you walk with me out on the wire
`Cause baby I’m just a scared and lonely rider
But I gotta know how it feels
I want to know if love is wild
Babe I want to know if love is real

Born to Run ~Bruce Springsteen~

I’m pretty sure he’s not talking about a motorcycle in these lyrics! But, I could be wrong! 🙂

I’m a little short on words today, so I’ll get right to the reason I’m here! The Bree Stilettos are the newest release from NX-Nardcotix, and they’re now in the main store! These classic pumps are available in ten pretty floral prints and will go with a variety of outfits. They’re compatible with the SLink, Maitreya, and Belleza mesh feet.

The Rainy Day Dress from Dead Dollz is really effective in keeping the rain off of me, but a little lacking in concealing my body! Which I can’t say is a bad thing!! This is the white version and is exclusively fit for the Lara mesh body from Maitreya. It’s HUD driven to change the colour of the edging.

The Thong Panty from Solange! is my go to undergarment. The fatpack is loaded with colours and the pack includes rigged and unrigged versions for the Maitreya and SLink mesh bodies along with standard sizes.

I’m wearing the Lara mesh body from Maitreya here with the Luna skin in ‘peche’ tone from Sinful Curves Skins, and the SLink high feet.

I’ve become completely addicted to the home decor and landscaping items from [we’re closed]! I swear I don’t think there’s much left in the main store for me to get! I’m standing on one of the four Rustic Decks that are in the pack.

The pose is from Le Poppycock.

I’m at the beautiful Winters Wind sim, which I will say has a couple vacancies right now, so you can make it your home! I highly recommend it, it’s a little piece of heaven!

Thoughts From an Introvert

Thoughts From an Introvert

I’m an introvert, and I’ve learned a lot about it by following a few Facebook users that share their thoughts about life as an introvert! I saw a post today, in cartoon form, of an astronaut sitting on a rock on the moon, alone of course! The astronaut is in deep thought and then asks, ‘Am I lonely? Or really really happy? I can never be sure!’. I love that! I’ve thought about loneliness and have to admit that there are times that I am lonely. But, the thought of being more social or having more friends is something that just doesn’t appeal to me! I don’t want to socialize more! I hardly socialize now, and I don’t like it when I do. So, why would I need more people in my life? And the thought of living with someone completely terrifies me! In my home, alone, is where I’m truly comfortable, I can’t risk losing this! So how does an introvert, who’s sometimes lonely, deal with this? The idea of being ‘alone together’ is something I could live with! Separate homes, to escape to when alone time is needed, but spending time together and enjoying life as a couple, would be perfect! Oh, and the other person has to be an introvert too! I just can’t live like an extrovert, and survive! I always thought that there’s something wrong with me, not wanting to be around people, and preferring to spend time with my animals. But, there’s nothing wrong with me, I don’t need to learn to be more social, or to just ‘get over it’! I’m me, I’m an introvert, proudly!

I’m in my happy place here, laying in bed, not asleep, but just in deep thought. And while I do enjoy this, there are times that I venture out for some much needed retail therapy! I do enjoy shopping, in real life as well as Second Life, but in real life I need the self check outs, chatting with the cashier is something I just don’t like doing! So, shopping in Second Life is perfect for me! I can do it without talking with anyone, and I don’t have to bag it myself! 🙂 If you’re in need of some retail therapy of your own, I completely recommend Shoetopia! Some of the best shoe makers in Second Life are all in one place, with new and exclusive releases! I’m wearing the Alba Wedge from NX-Nardcotix, here and they’re positively gorgeous! The delicate straps and mid height heel are perfect for the upcoming summer season, or you can get sexy in them, like I am here. They fit the mid foot from SLink, Maitreya, and Belleza and come in eight colours. Shoetopia runs until April 15.

I don’t normally shop for skins, I’m completely dedicated to Sinful Curves Skins, but I did take a bit of time to visit the Skin Fair 2017, on the last day, mind you! I fell in love with the Sweet Rose Tattoo, henna from Nanika! It’s compatible with Omega, and also the SLink, Maitreya, and Belleza mesh bodies.

The Selene panties and bra are from Violent Seduction. They were part of a gacha from a previous round of The Epiphany.

The WAKANA hair is from Argrace.

My complete look starts with the Alex mesh head from Logo wearing the Alexa skin in honey tone from Sinful Curves Skins, the Lara mesh body from Maitreya, and the mid feet and Dynamic hands from SLink.

This pose is from the ‘Footnote’ set of poses for women from Le Poppycock.
