A Quiet Day

A Quiet Day

I’ve got lots going on in this post, so I’ll get started! First off, the June round of Collabor88 has begun and Ingenue has released another ‘must have’ pair of shoes! The ‘Lisbet Heels’ are fitted for the SLink and Maitreya mid foot and come in a dozen colours, all of them perfect for those summertime outfits! The chunky heel and the smooth lines of the straps really call attention to pretty legs and ankles!

The June round of The Avenue is on and Raindale has updated one of the earliest releases! The ‘Larimer’ set has been redone with added textures and animations for the cushions, the table and decor have been completely revamped, and the wall art now has five pictures to choose from! There’s two versions of the floor cushions so you can either change their colour via drop down menu or with a a HUD(10 colours for all) and the single cushion has 15 animations and the stacked cushions have 25, the light is on/off on touch, and the table and decor comes linked together for easy decorating or separately. The Avenue runs until June 20. Also from Raindale is the Apple Basket, one of my favourite things to have around, and the tea cup from the ‘Sugarvale’ gacha set! I always like to have a cup of something hot close by when I’m relaxing! Both of those items are available at the Raindale main store.

I want to take a second to bring your attention to a piece of art that I just had to have! While wandering around ‘The Last Forever‘ I took notice of an incredibly unique sculpture and after a quick check in edit mode I found out it was created by Silas Merlin! I wanted to see more from him, so I made a trip to ‘The Silas Gallery‘ and fell in love with his work! I brought home ‘Marrakech’, it’s the kitty on the wall for anyone not sure where to look, and I think it’s perfect for my little abode! I then made my way to the June round of ‘The Chapter Four‘ and played his latest gacha, the ‘Eerie Crew’ gacha! It consists of ten commons and one RARE sculpture, all showing Silas’s incredible talent!

Also in this shot is the RARE ‘Big Broadcast Radio’ from the Vintage Radios gacha set from KraftWork! It comes with two versions, one is a completely operable radio and the other is for decor only!

The row of books in front of the radio is from Balaclava and was on sale for Fifty Linden Friday this past week. It’s texture change with different genres of books, I’m into ‘new age’ right now!

The big pillow on the right is the ‘patchwork pillow’ from [we’re CLOSED]! It’s a group gift so it’s your for the taking if you’re a group member! The group is 250L$ to join, but it’s worth it!! There’s about 10 gifts there right now and they’re all very good quality!

I made quite a few purchases at Collabor88 when I was there! I was so shocked to get in so early in the round that I celebrated with buying lots! The ‘potted palm’ is part of the ‘Natural Habitat’ set of house plants from dust bunny! I just got the fatpack, and completely avoided the dilemma of which one to get! The fatpack has five really great house plants, and I can’t kill any of them with lack of water! 🙂

The ‘Feline Jeans Mini’ in navy is from Mimikri! It’s a perfect fit on the Lara mesh body from Maitreya, as you can see. It’s also fitted for the SLink mesh bodies!

My home is the JAC Boat Shack from Redgrave. I keep the sun out with the Carriage Blinds from ‘The Carriage’ gacha set from Scarlett Creative.

As always, I’m wearing the Luna skin in ‘peche’ tone from Sinful Curves Skins(soon to be ‘Avada’) on the Lara mesh body from Maitreya.

I’m using a pose from Pose Set 86 from Overlow Poses.

Remember to flip your calendar over to the next month, and you’ll find that it’s June! Today marks the first day of the June round of the Arcade Gacha Event, and it’s always been one of my favourite events! I’ve always made a beeline for the Ingenue arcade game to grab the shoes that are sure to be favourites of mine! The ‘Lykke Heels’ don’t disappoint! Betty Doyle’s perfect styling is simple, versatile, and come in a wide range of colours! My love of Ingenue shoes started with the ‘Delphine’ heels way back in 2013! They were for the system feet, but the shoe was perfect, the unsightly ankles of the system avatar is something I don’t miss! I wore them everywhere, and played that gacha machine to within an inch of it’s life! So, jump ahead four years and you’ll find the ‘Lykke Heels’ that come in fifteen colours and are SLink and Maitreya high feet compatible! I’m wearing the SLink, chocolate here and I know I’ll be going back to these in the future! They’re classics in the making! It’s always tough to get into the Arcade in the first days, but you can try the main landing point, off sim shopping area one, or off sim area two.

The positively stunning Off Shoulder Top is from Tetra and available at the current round of ~uber~. I splurged on the fatpack, and I had a hard time deciding what colour to wear! I love this one, though!

Also at ~uber~ is the Turner Choker from Vinyl! And again I got the fatpack, this isn’t a very good view of it here, but take my word for it, it’s a keeper!

These jeans are from the September 2016 round of the Luxe Box from Blueberry!

When Truth Hair had the big sale, I made a few purchases! This is Debra, from the blacks and whites pack.

As always, I’m wearing the Alex mesh head from Logo with the Luna skin in ‘peche’ tone from Sinful Curves Skins. I’ve added one of the nine options from the Mythic Shadow pack of eye shadows from Veechi! The rest of me is the Lara mesh body from Maitreya and the SLink high feet.

This pose is from the ‘Grounded 2’ set of poses from oOo Studio Poses.

I’m hanging out with James Dean at the little bar on the corner of ‘TRIIN Ln’ and ‘BKDR Rd’ at The Last Forever!

Memories

Memories

“Sometimes memories sneak out of my eyes and roll down my cheeks.”

I’m thankful that we have memories, even though I remember the bad times……it’s the good times that make me cry!

I’m going to get right down to business here! Firstly, I’m so excited to show you a new pose prop from IMMERSIV! It’s called Travellers Meet and it depicts time spent waiting for that special someone, and the joy of them arriving! I’m using a pose that just shows me waiting…patiently of course! The prop has a total of fifteen poses, for the guys, the girls, and the two of you when you finally get together! The suitcase has five gorgeous textures to choose from via drop down menu and the poses are adjustable. I’m at Missing Mile, which allows rezzing, in front of the terminal at the railway tracks. You can find the Travelers Meet pose prop at the IMMERSIV main store or on Market Place.

The October round of Designer Showcase is on and More Than Ever has the Fawn Top & Mini! This is from the Bramble set, which is HUD driven with three colours! This cute little ensemble is mesh body compatible for SLink, Belleza, and Maitreya!

This isn’t a good look at my shoes, but I’ll show a closer look in the near future! They’re the Tabatha Heels from Ingenue and are available at the current round of Collabor88! I better wear them again since I splurged on the fatpack!!

Also at Collabor88 is the Laguna House Party necklace from Maxi Gossamer Jewellry.

The Tina hair in citrine tone is from D!va.

I am the Lara mesh body from Maitreya, the Nelly mesh head from Genesis Labs, and the casual hands and high feet from SLink.

Caution: Inventory Overload!!

Caution: Inventory Overload!!

I remember a day, way back when I was a mere yearling here in Second Life, when I was shocked and in awe of my sister’s inventory that had hit 65,000 items! I couldn’t believe that anyone could collect that many items in their inventory! At that time, I think I had about 6,000 items and hadn’t yet developed a system for organizing my inventory…I didn’t really need it at that time! When I hit 8,000 I thought I better start getting a handle on things and started adding folders! So, I began folders with names like dresses and shorts and tops! I went with that for quite awhile, until I realized that that wasn’t really going to work for me! Last year I got determined to organize better and instead go with store names! Then, if I was ambitious, I could do sub folders separating the items within the store folders. Well, after doing a lot of half-a**ed work on ye olde inventory, I now have it half way between store names and the names of the clothing items. I’ve just kept adding to it and now just have a mess of 95,019 items all kind of mushed together..and randomly in some areas! And my objects folder….after a trip to the Arcade is about as long as my arm….and then some! So….in Second Life, as in real life, I collect, and I save, and I store away for later….which never really comes because I’ve forgotten I even have it!

So today I have a cute little outfit just right for whatever is going on in your day! I’ll start with the nails, because they’re awesome! The Spring Silver Unique from -{ZOZ}- is, like it’s name implies, unique! This set is intended to make one of your nails a solid silver and the remainder of your nails one of the nine colour options in the HUD! You can make more than one finger unique with the SLink hands, but Maitreya is limited to the ring finger! These are available at the current round of Cosmopolitan!

I have to admit I was a little surprised when I went to find The Dressing Room Fusion! It’s not there! The newest version of this “must do” sales event is now simply The Dressing Room and the deals are just as good as ever, and with even more designers than before! I picked up this cute little dress from Fishy Strawberry which can be worn with or without the skirt, so it doubles as a top! The Birthday Girl Dress, in Dusty Blue, is HUD driven with eight colour options for the skirt, if worn!

My trip into the new round of the Arcade Gacha Event was so simple this time around! I made a few tries at the Oksana Heels gacha from Ingenue and ended up with the “steel” colour! There’a surprising little addition to these shoes! They’re HUD driven with your choice of fit, for your specific feet! they’re compatible with SLink, Belleza and Maitreya!

The Olivia skin in Tan tone is from .::WoW Skins::.! I haven’t mentioned it in awhile…..but there’s a bunch of great lucky boards there with quick turnover…so it’s the perfect place to get some quality skins, on the cheap!

The Doutzen hair from =DeLa*= is a super nice style! This is from the Amazing Pack!

Take a moment to have a look at the Firefly Shelters at my feet! This is the group gift right now at Bokeh! They have a land impact of 3 and are super original!

The poses are from the Ruby pack from .mien..

I stayed at home on my deck at the gorgeous Summerwind South sim!
