Izzie’s

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.

'No Opinion' Sunday

It’s Sunday morning and to help find a little bit of quiet time in my head, I declare this day ‘No Opinion Sunday’. Its a day to quiet the mind and make a point to have no opinion about anything, no matter how much I may want to.

I’m sitting on this bridge at the Hazardous sim. I’ve never sat here before and once I got used to the height I find it quite enjoyable. My usual spot on the sim is behind my right shoulder, you’ll find me sitting on that bench and watching the sun set, and set some more, and it’s still setting! I love Hazardous! The bridge has men’s and women’s animations but I’m using a pose from the ‘Footnote, Mens’ pose set from Le Poppycock.

And as for my outfit today? I think everyone is aware that The Chapter Four is open and for the August round Slipper Originals has the Cera Sandals and Bento Rings. The sandals are compatible with the SLink, Maitreya, and Belleza flat mesh feet and the fatpack is loaded with colours and options including lots of areas to customize with 16 shoe textures, 12 stones, and 6 metals. The Cera Bento Rings are HUD driven with the option to wear as many or as few as you want. There’s both left and right hands included and there’s 12 stone colours and 6 metals. TCF runs until the end of the month.

If you zoom in a bit you can get a better look at the ‘Ilaria Necklace’ from *elise*, also exclusive to The Chapter Four. It’s HUD driven for easy resizing and has 7 gem and 4 metals to select from. There’s also bracelets and bento rings, all sold separately in the Under 100L room.

The very pretty and breezy hair is from YUMYUM and available at Knot&co..

My pretty lace top is a freebie from Blueberry. You can grab it at the main store or on Market Place.

I am wearing shorts, here. You can only see the belt buckle peeking out, but the Ella Denim Shorts from LEGAL INSANITY are there.

My nail applier is from the Sunrise Sunset pack from Hello Dave, which is the latest VIP gift.

The ‘Moka’ eyeshadow is from the July round of Powder Pack from Izzies’s.

As usual, I’m wearing the ‘Luna’ skin in ‘peche’ tone from Avada. Along with the Lilo bento head from Catwa, the Lara mesh body(including hands) from Maitreya, and the flat feet from SLink.

Meet Me at Greasy's Diner

He said he’d meet me at this diner and we’d have a ‘nice’ meal! I’m not sure what he thinks ‘nice’ is, but for me this ain’t it! It’s not often I make a date, and it’s times like this that I know why. I don’t enjoy it, meeting someone and making small talk and then trying to appear comfortable and interested, when all I want to do is go home and read my book with a hot cup of tea. It’s not like I get what I expect to get, I’ve gone into many dates with an open mind and high hopes, but they’re usually dashed when he either talks about himself the whole time or he bashes his last girlfriend, endlessly. And this is not starting well, he’s late and if he thinks the ‘Greasy Diner’ is a nice meal then I pretty much know the outcome of this. I want to text him and tell him to shove his ‘nice meal’ and I’ll go on about my day, but I’m not that kind of person. I’ll give him a chance to at least be later than this before I pull the plug. I mean, I was only going to bath the dog and then make a bowl of popcorn and watch a movie. Not terribly important, I know, but I cherish my time alone, no matter how much of it I have. I’ll give him 15 more minutes, then I’m outa here! I have to admit I don’t like standing out here waiting, getting stared at by passersby! I guess I can look busy with my phone, do some major corporate take overs and save the world, because that’s what any true woman would do when wearing her cupcake bra! 😀

Author’s Note: This story is a work of fiction, no one was late for the date, I don’t date at all, and I’m sure Greasy’s Diner is a fine establishment to dine at. You’ll find it at aloha Beach, if you’re interested in trying it out!

Alrighty then, on with the show. A new round of Tres Chic is open for business and LEGAL INSANITY is there with the Sunny Bras and Sunny Sporty Shorts. They both come in lots of colours, and if you splurge on the fatpack there’s a whole bunch of exclusive patches for the bra. The cupcake is one of them. You can mix and match the colours of the straps, metal, and the fishnet part of the bra, as well. The shorts also have extra colours in the FP, and the waist band and trim can be changed independently from the actual shorts. They’re both SLink, Belleza, and Maitreya mesh body compatible. So cute!

Imitation has a new pose/prop set out, and now you can look at your phone and be p*****d off! Or just take a few pictures of yourself to send to your friends, enemies, loved ones, or just random people! I think I’ll send a picture of myself to the dude who’s late, show him how happy I am right now(not) and show him what he’s missing!! The ‘Selfie, Bento’ pose set comes with five poses along with the phone, which attaches to the left hand. You’ll find it on Market Place and the Imitation main store.

I made the plunge and got in on the Powder Pack, Catwa subscription box for the July round! I’ve not looked at it all yet, but I love the ‘Moka Eye Shadow’ from Izzie’s.

While you’re looking at the phone you might want to zoom in and take a gander at the French Ready 2 manicure from Hello Dave. It’s free for anyone and everyone at the Hello Dave main store. The first ‘French Ready’ set of nails is also available free of charge. They’re compatible with SLink, Maitreya, and Omega nails.

The ‘NO PRESSURE’ hair is from NO.MATCH.

The ‘Selene Ribbon Choker, white’ is from Violent Seduction.

The lovely ‘Luna’ skin in ‘peche’ tone is from Avada and applied to the Lilo bento mesh head from Catwa and the Lara mesh body from Maitreya.

We're Having a Heat Wave!

Yes, a tropical heat wave!! Really, we are! Although where I am it’s usually a dry heat! No ocean breeze, no humidity to make my hair a big frizz ball, and no pineapples growing! I could grow watermelon, but I didn’t this year, so unfortunate when I see what I could have done with them!! My sister, Gillian Galicia, and I having some fun with the ‘Fruity’ pose/prop from Foxcity, here! It’s available at SaNaRae until July 18! The fruit is transfer so you can easily share with someone who needs a bit of a cover up while on the beach! You may be asking yourself if we’re out romping on a beach without anything on, you can check out Gillian’s blog to see for yourself! 😀

Here’s the short list of what we’re wearing! 🙂

Me:

The ‘Bones’ hair is from [KoKoLoReS] and is a Hair Fair 2017 exclusive release! HF’17 is on now and [KoKoLoReS] has 6 new releases, all incredible!!

The Sweetberry Necklace, gold, from !NFINITY, is such a summery addition to an outfit! Especially when it’s about all you’re wearing! 🙂 It’s 100% mesh, HUD driven with 8 solid bead and 8 dual bead colours, and it’s scripted for easy resizing!

I’m wearing the Lilo bento mesh head from Catwa with the ‘Luna’ skin in ‘vivante’ tone from Avada! The rest of me is the Lara mesh body from Maitreya.

My eyeshadow is from the Smokey Shadow pack from Izzie’s. And my eyes are the Nissa Eyes from Zombie Suicide.
