Come On….I’d Rather Be Shopping!

Come On....I'd Rather Be Shopping!

I told myself that I’d get a post done today before I go to the Thereafter Event. I really really want to go to it because I think deep down I have survivalist down deep in me just waiting to emerge at the right time. I’m sure of it, what else can explain my need to stockpile dry goods and extra supplies. I’m not a hoarder, no way, that’s a whole different thing! I know, I know, you’re saying I’m a hoarder, but really if something happens like a total loss of the power grid I’ll be prepared. I’m ready, bring it on! I say to the world, ‘do your damnedest, just try to break me’! I do, I say that all the time. It usually comes after I’m done crying when the truck won’t start! 😀

Ok…..I’m going to type fast and not correct typos, how does that grab ya? LoL. First off, the ‘Nerissa Nails’ are from Slipper Originals and have been at Designer Circle, but it’s over today. Yea…I’m a little slow…so sorry, Elle! They’re full mesh nails fitted for the Maitreya bento hands. All you need to do is turn off the Maitreya nails and apply these and you’re done! They’re HUD driven with all kinds of colour options, including being able to colours the enamel of the nails individually! The stars and anchors can be on or not, and the stripes can be coloured separately, too. They’re perfect for a nautical outfit, or just lounging in your undies!

Ok, the new round of Men Only Monthly doesn’t start until the 20th, but I’m giving you a heads up on the new release from !NFINITY. The ‘Sharktooth Necklace’ is exclusive to MOM and it’s perfectly detailed and textured. It’s completely resizable via drop down menu so even though it starts out fitted for men, it was easily reduced down to my size! There’s 3 tooth options, 2 metals, and 4 cord colours and it’s 100% original mesh! Remember, MOM starts on the 20th.

The ‘Irina Shirt and Panties’ is a gorgeous creation from Asteria and this, and also a ruffled corset, are exclusive to the Mesh Body Addicts Fair 2017, which only has four more days to go! You have until August 21st to shop the MBA Fair….don’t wait to long!

The ‘KOMA’ hair, from the Blacks pack, is from Argrace! One of my favourite short styles!

As per usual, I’m wearing the ‘Luna’ skin in ‘peche’ tone from Avada on the ‘Lilo’ bento mesh head from Catwa along with the ‘Lara’ mesh body, including bento hands, from Maitreya. I’ve added one of the 12 colour options from the ‘Satin Eyeshadow’ Catwa applier from Buzzeri. It’s available now at the ‘Blush‘ event!

My eyes are one of the ten colours in the ‘Nissa Eyes’ set from Zombie Suicide.

The ‘Two Initial Charm Bracelet’, on my left wrist, is from the ‘Charm Bracelet’ gacha set from Izzie’s!

This pose is from the ‘Get Down’ singles beach poses from Aerial Poses and Props.

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].

Black or White

Black or White

I’m a black OR white kind of person! I feel very strongly, and once my emotions about something are set, I rarely waver from it. I’m passionate and I think it shows when I put my heart into something. I believe in order to do something well it has to be done with passion. What’s going on in the world today brings out strong emotions in me and I have to limit the amount of news I hear, for my own sanity. I have deep feelings for my family and loved ones and am faithful, tirelessly. I love wholly but also hate deeply! I don’t see any shades of grey when my feelings are concerned, it’s all either black or white! I strive to love more and hate less for my own inner peace, which means each day reaffirming to myself that love is always the answer.

I’m super happy to have Phen Balfour join me for this post. It’s really tough to show a friends pose alone, so I was more than willing to grab a pose ball and join her for this one. We’re posing with the ‘Two Peas’ friends pose from In the Moment and it was part of the first “Flash Shot Monthly Pose Box’, which came out earlier this month. I love poses so I was really happy to see a subscription box for poses, exclusively. You’ll find Phen on her blog, Phenart and also on flickr!

We’re on location today at the Honeycomb sim, home of the hive main store.

Welcome to My World, Won’t You Come in?

Welcome to My World, Won't You Come in?

First off tonight I want to bring your attention to the newest pose prop from IMMERSIV! It’s called FemmeFatale and it consists of a wall and door with poses that invite that special someone into your boudoir! It contains six poses that can be adjusted for your avatar, plus the door and wall are texture change, via drop down menu, with a nice variety of options! I’m sure there’s many ways I could invite someone in to my bedroom….but I’m pretty sure this pose, eye contact, and this outfit should do it! 🙂

I’m always super excited about a new release from GLAMISTRY and the latest release is one of the best yet…..in my humble opinion, of course! The ROSE Heels are super sexy with a nice high heel and a wonderfully detailed rose! As with all GLAMISTRY shoes, they’re HUD driven with lots of colour options to choose from and when you get the fatpack the options are endless, plus the Rose Heels have five areas to customize!! They’re compatible with the SLink, Maitreya, and Belleza mesh feet!

I’m wearing one of the nine colours from the Stygian Shadow pack from Veechi. They’re compatible with the classic avatar plus the Genesis Labs(seen here), Catwa, Logo, Akeruka, and Lelutka mesh heads! I love the bold colours of this pack and after it’s time at The Liaison Collaborative it should be in the main store pretty quick! My beauty mark is also from Veechi and it’s from the Beauty Marks 01 pack.

I wanted to look alluring for this post so I’ve donned the Lyx Bodysuit from DECOY. It’s compatible with the Lara mesh body from Maitreya and the Hourglass mesh body from SLink. It comes in six colours to choose from.

The hair I’m wearing is the Sherilyn Hair(frizzy chic) from Tableau Vivant.

My avatar consists of the Lara mesh body from Maitreya, the Nelly mesh head from Genesis Labs, and the elegant 1 hands and high feet from SLink.
