A Winter Walk

I close my eyes and envision myself taking a walk in the winter, among the frozen trees, the snow covered ground and the dazzling blue sky above. There’s no sound but the soft crunching of the snow under my boots. The air is crisp and as I lift my face to the sun I feel the tiniest bit of heat, unbelieving that just 6 months ago it could burn. The snow is blinding in it’s whiteness and my breath drifts in the air like soft plumes of smoke, I feel peace and relaxation wash over me, nature in an form brings this to me. I open my eyes, reality setting in as I put on my winter coat and boots preparing to shovel the newly fallen snow. I step outside, grab the snow scoop and start shoveling off the step then working my way outward. That’s when it hits me, my nose starts to run and my eyes water, my breath catches in my lungs as I inhale the frozen air, then I begin to cough. Within 10 minutes my fingers are cold as ice and the tip of my nose is burning, since it’s had frostbite in the past. My feet are numb and when I straighten to rest for a minute the full effect of the 28 KPH wind stings my face, so I hunker lower into my scarf. I clear snow for another 10 minutes, the cold has now seeped right into me and I feel like I’ll never be warm again, I need a hot shower followed by a cup of hot coffee and some warm fuzzy slippers. This is the Canadian prairies in the winter, the thermometer says it’s only -29°C but oh man…that wind is making it feel like -42°C. Some days I wish I lived somewhere with a warmer climate but, at least we don’t have a mosquito problem right now!

I’m out in the virtual snow in Second Life for this shot, I found some really pretty areas for pictures at Luane’s Winter World.

One thing that I love about Second Life fashion is the creativity of the designers, and how every form outer wear is created to mimic real life. fame femme has really been at the forefront of this and I absolutely LOVE the ‘Yana Puff Vest and Dress’, their newest release. They’re sold as separates which makes them ultra versatile and come in 8 really vibrant colours to mix and match. The dress is a little bit short for my comfort zone so I’ve added a pair of leggings to the outfit. The vest and sweater dress are both fitted exclusively for the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya and are available now and until February 19 at District 20. All releases from fame femme are 100% original mesh and the detailing is exquisite!

The ‘G1020’ hair is from tram.

My look all starts with the ‘Raine’ skin in ‘miel’ tone from Avada, on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

This is pose 8 from ‘Pack 91’ from Overlow Poses.

There's Nothing Like a Day at the Beach!

The moist cooling breeze coming in off the water and cooling sun warmed skin! The smell of sun block heavy in the air, that’s SPF 150 for me, please! The sand that always manages to creep onto the towel or blanket and find it’s way to places that aren’t really conducive to comfort! The fellow sunbathers and kids playing gets annoying after awhile, but hopefully a good book will keep me occupied! I need a huge bottle of water with me, gotta stay hydrated, you know! I’m not much of a swimmer, but I do enjoy wading along the shore feeling the sand and cool water on my feet! I actually haven’t been to any kind of beach in a lot of years, but when I was a kid I did enjoy the time spent along the lake during holidays, waiting to see signs of Ogopogo(I never did)! 😀

First off, the one thing that’s exciting right now is that the 2017 edition of Hair Fair is open!! This is the event I wait patiently for every year, having stuffed my purse with Lindens to shop until I drop, or I’m broke! Usually broke comes first! 😀 [KoKoLoReS] has SIX incredible exclusives for the event and they’re all my favourites! I had no idea which one to wear first! I settled on ‘Mila’ from the naturals HUD! The short sides and front with a nice casual mid length back is a no fuss style perfect for summer! Check out the Hair Fair blog for complete information including slurls and maps! You’ll find [KoKoLoReS] at the ‘Blonde‘ sim!

I enjoy the beach much more in Second Life than in real life! I searched around and found a nice little private beach at Warm Springs for these pictures! I’m looking pretty, relaxed, and just happy to be alive, here! What got a trip to the beach in my mind is the beautiful Ivy Cover Up from NX-Nardcotix! It’s available now at Summerfest’17 and is compatible with the Maitreya, SLink, and Belleza mesh bodies. I love the high cut leg and the really loose and flowing top with a slightly cinched in waist. It’s perfect for relaxing after the swimming is done! Summerfest ’17 runs until July 20.

With such a sexy little cover up I couldn’t not show the back! The deep V neck back leaves room to show off a pretty tattoo, like this one! It’s the ‘Yesterday Tomorrow’ tattoo from L.c Tattoos and with the pack containing four ink tones it can be as new or as faded as you want! It’s Omega compatible so it works on pretty much any mesh body! You know me, I love bird tattoos! 🙂

You may be wondering why I’m so happy, well I’ll tell you! For my birthday, a week or so ago, my very generous sister, Gillian Galicia, gifted me the Bubblegum for the Catwa bento heads! This look is one of the many included in the gum chewing animations included! Thank you sistah!

The ultra roomy Huguette Bag from C’est la vie is perfect for a trip to the beach!

The pose I’ve used here is from Overlow Poses and with the addition of the bag after posing, the arm is then posed to hold it!

My look all starts with the Lilo bento head from Catwa with the ‘Luna’ skin in ‘vivante’ tone! I’ve added some eye make up from the ‘Hypnotic Eyeshadow’ set which is available now at The Makeover Room! Both skin and eye shadow are from Avada(formerly Sinful Curves Skins). The rest of me is the Lara mesh body from Maitreya.

See Me Well!

I’ve done it! In the beginning I said I’d never go mesh, then I got the Lara mesh body, but there’s no damn way I’ll ever get a mesh head! They all look the same and I love my system face, I said! Yea……then I got a mesh head, I said! First one from Genesis Labs and then Alex from Logo, which I thought was ‘me’! Well, this past weekend I felt rich and decided I had way to many lindens, and the best way to get rid of them is to shop! And shop I did! I went to the Catwa main store and grabbed some demos and went home to wrestle with the various mesh heads! I finally declared the ‘Lilo’ head from Catwa the winner and off I went to make the purchase! And then another one, because I need to make faces. And then a few more transactions, why have an animations HUD without it being full? Oh…and since I was there, and still had a few lindens left, I decided I ‘need’ the tears! I want Liz to be able to cry! 😀 So today I present to you, the new TinLiz Winterstorm,

I’m standing on the precipice at Hazardous and the wind is blowing strong! I know the ‘MAYU’ hair from Argrace is covering my face, but I want to mention my eye make up! It’s from the ‘Monroe Shadow Set’ from Veechi and available at ~uber~ for the next couple days, then it’ll be at the Veechi main store!

I’m so happy to stay with my usual skin of ‘Luna’ in ‘peche’ tone from Sinful Curves Skins, or Avada which I’ll be calling it from now on. Luna looks as gorgeous on the ‘Lilo’ head as she did on my Alex head from Logo.

I found this little beauty of a tattoo on Market Place from QUATRETTOCS! It’s the Bird Believe Tattoo and it’s compatible with Maitreya,Lara and Omega compatible mesh bodies. Hey guys, look at the tattoo, no need to look any lower than that!! 😀

The ‘Moon Choker’ is from Burial! I love how fine the cord is and the super delicate moon!

The Hara VNeck Top is from Addams! I think I’ve got a problem controlling my shopping impulses, but I’m loving it! It’s always the fatpack at Addams!

I’ve always loved dark eyes, I wish I had them in real life, but I don’t! ~sigh~ These are the ‘Nissa Eyes’ from Zombie Suicide at the current round of ‘APPLIQUE‘! The pack contains ten stunning eyes….. system, Catwa and Omega compatible.

My pose is from Overlow Poses.

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.

WTF's a Selfie For Anyway?

I hate the word, I hate everything about a “selfie”! Like, who needs to take hourly pictures of themselves…..AND THEN POST THEM ON FACEBOOK? Who wants to see that? I, for one, don’t! My own relatives take them, and post them on FB, and damn they’re ugly! No one wants to see a duck face, or any other kind of face!! I didn’t upgrade to a smart phone until last December, and I didn’t realize how narcissistic the general population has become! I wonder where this is all going to go! I read online that ‘twerking’ and ‘selfie’ have been added to the dictionary, unfortuately ‘future’ and ‘optimism’ have been removed! How true is that!

Ok…my Saturday morning rant is now over and I’ll carry on to the important stuff! I have a few great things to show you today, so I’ll get at it!

Firstly, Stories&Co. by Flowey has released the Joyce Tunic for the April round of Collabor88, and it’s a pretty little frock! It comes in ten colours, four standard sizes and fitted version for SLink Hourglass and Physique. I fit one of the sizes over the Maitreya Lara mesh body easily! The dress has a nice little cut out on the back that would be perfect to show off a little bit of tattoo!

The EDELWEISS Heels from GLAMISTRY are a fairly new release and with the popularity of booties, these are must haves! They’re SLink, Maitreya and Belleza compatible, so pretty much everyone can enjoy the admiring looks you’ll get with these!

The Tulip Gloss nail appliers from Hello Dave are a new release and just in time for all the spring blooms! They come in Matte also and are compatible with SLink and Omega.

I’ve added the Caught Tattoo from Pimp My Sh!t to add a little attitude to the outfit! The Caught Tattoo comes in three ink tones and is Omega and TMP compatible, along with the tattoo layer for the classic avatars amongst us! This one and others are at The 100 Block event until April 30.

I’m wearing the Bohemian Eye shadow in orange from Veechi. The pack contains nine colours and is compatible with the classic avatars plus appliers for Genesis and Lelutka mesh heads.

The Elyse skin in Powder tone is from the Elementary pack, the dimples version, from TULI.

The Girls hair 64 is from Dura.

The Luminous Dark Chocolate eyes are from Mayfly.

The Selfie Phone and MUA selfie area are both from RAMA and available at the main store for The Gacha Guardians! The phone is available when you make ten purchases at the RAMA gacha and then complete the Gacha Guardians circuit.

I used poses from Pack 60 Selfie from Overlow Poses.
