Living Outside the Box

Living Outside the Box

Why just think outside the box when you can live outside of it? Life is too short to put things off, so be wild, be free, and be yourself! No one can do that better than you!

It’s a stormy Friday evening here in my world, so I’m typing fast to try to get this written before the power goes out, like it did last night! So, lets get going, shall we!

First off, Indie Teepee starts today and KraftWork has the intricately detailed and fabulous ‘Not a Box Stage’, perfect for any kind of entertainment you may want to host. It’s HUD driven with lots of colours to light it up any way you like! The 2017 edition of Indie Teepee promises lots of music, arts, entertainment, plus the always popular retail areas for your shopping enjoyment! Every day is a full schedule of live music and DJ’s on multiple stages throughout the three areas, custom built by some of the best builders in Second Life. You can stay up to date by following the Indie Teepee Facebook page, it runs until August 6.

The Secret Affair is on and Le Poppycock has the ‘Indiscretion’ pose/prop gacha set exclusive to the event. The set consists of 10 poses with a chair for a prop and five poses without. All of the poses are sexy, seductive, and just a little bit naughty! The Secret Affair runs until July 29.

The ‘Shirley’ Lingerie set in red is a stunning set perfect for your boudoir photos. It’s a three piece set, plus appliers for the stockings in three colours from Big Beautiful Dolls Lingerie. The set is compatible with the SLink, Maitreya(seen here), and Belleza mesh bodies and is available now at Shiny Shabby.

I know this photo does nothing to show any kind of detail of anything I’m wearing, it’s not the shot I was intending when I put this outfit together, but I just adapted and let it go where it wanted. So, I’m showing a very glowy and far away shot of the lovely ‘Dannika’ Pumps from Slipper Originals. The shoes fit the SLink, Maitreya, and Belleza high feet and the fatpack contains 16 colours, five metals and five areas to customize. Sorry for the long shot Elle, I’ll make it up to you soon. 😀

My hair is ‘WAKANA’ from Argrace.

As always I’ve applied the ‘Luna’ skin in ‘peche’ tone from Avada to the Lilo bento mesh head from Catwa and the Lara mesh body from Maitreya.

Great Ideas

Great Ideas

The idea to make a machine that slices a loaf of bread was a great idea. The day I decided to cut off an electrical wire with a pair of pliers, without shutting the breaker off…..not so much. Indoor plumbing was an idea that was pure genius. The time my sister said, ‘Hey, lets crawl up the bale elevator’, wasn’t. One broken leg and much crying ensued, but then, I was only 6. 😀 Whoever had the idea for an automatic washing machine was pretty darn smart. When Dad said to me, ‘Hang on to that board while I sand it’, I should have been smart enough to see this coming and walked away! But instead I got my hand sanded with a belt sander….good idea? Nope…not even close. What I’m getting at here is that there are so many people that have great ideas, and my family and I are more like a Jackass movie!! It’s my own fault, really. I’m sure climbing the bale elevator would have been fun had I been older and a little less clumsy, my sister made it up and back safely….but no, I break my leg while at the bottom. The hand sanding(as we like to call it) was nothing more than me helping Dad out, and since I’m a people pleaser I help when someone needs it! For the record, it only bled for a little while and he laughed.. The live wire and pliers incident I have a harder time explaining, I guess I just wasn’t thinking. A note to anyone who does want to try it, don’t wear a fuzzy sweater when you do, it gets scorch marks down the front! 😀 These are just a few anecdotes that stand out it my thoughts right now, I’m sure everyone has moments like these….. at least I hope so.

The Epiphany opened yesterday, it only comes around four times a year, so it’s always exciting when the doors finally open. I was up bright and early this morning and managed to gain access to it, much to my surprise. There’s all kinds of goodies to play for this round and there’s also some gifts in celebration of The Epiphany’s birthday. Veechi is at this round and has an incredible gacha set of goodies! The ‘Desert Sun ‘ catwa make up gacha is a collection of vibrant desert colours with shadow and lip tint among the commons and one of the RARE items being lashes! I’m so excited to be able to wear all these goodies since my acquisition of the Lilo bento mesh head from Catwa. I’m wearing one of the two options from the Lush Lashes, RARE prize and one of the three options from the Victoria Shadow, naturals set. In all, there’s ten commons and 2 RARE to play for. The Epiphany runs until August 15.

In the world of Group Gifts, !NFINITY has the Emme Summer Top out free for group members and it’s perfect for these hot summer days. It’s compatible with the Maitreya, SLink, Belleza, Tonic, and TMP mesh bodies, and also comes in standard sizes plus, it’s HUD driven including eight colours. The group has a 50L$ one time fee to join, but with regular gifts and reduced pricing on new releases, it’s well worth it!!

There’s still a few days left in the current round of Shiny Shabby and LEGAL INSANITY has the Ella Denim Shorts exclusive to the event. They fit like a glove and look incredible with a slimming leg and a nice round butt. 😀 They’re compatible with the Maitreya, SLink, and Belleza mesh bodies and they come in four denim tones, sold separately or as a fatpack. Shiny Shabby runs until July 20.

The July round of The Chapter Four is still going strong with lots of time left for you to get your shopping done! {MYNX} has the ‘Beach Beads’ gacha set there for your playing enjoyment. These bangles just scream fun and summery and with ten commons and two RARES to play for, you’ll have as much fun as a beer commercial. 😛 I’m wearing the ‘Beach Beads-Starfish, RARE which is colour change via drop down menu with six colours for the cord.

This is how I look before every blog post I write, if you want to know the truth, although I’m not usually smiling. 😀 RC Cluster has the ‘Really Neat Notepad and thinking pencils’ gacha set at The Epiphany and I got the ‘Great Ideas’ version to help stimulate my brain! You get the notepad and the ‘thinking pencil’ in each prize with arm poses included. Just add the two things to yourself after you’re in the pose you want and your arms will do do their thing!

You might want to zoom in a bit in flickr to catch a good look at the pretty manicure I have on. This is from the ‘Grapefruit Mimosa’ applier set from Hello Dave. It’s compatible with SLink, Omega and Maitreya nails. This is one of five colours in the mini set.

I love the ‘Satomi’ hair from [monso]. The hair is shaped into cute little kitty ears and tied loosely at the back. It’s at the Hair Fair 2017 today, but with this being the last day it should move to the [monso] main store shortly.

The ‘Just Love’ tattoo is a group gift from Carol G Tattoo Wear. I like it’s simple message that isn’t thought of enough. There’s five other group gifts available for group members at this time.

I’m using the animations HUD for the Lilo bento mesh head from Catwa here to make this look that kind of looks like I’m happily thinking good things. I will admit that this isn’t the picture I wanted for this post, but after crashing a whole bunch of times while trying to take a different shot, I finally gave up and settled on this one. I just didn’t have the energy to log back in and do it all over again, I’m sure there’s a fellow blogger or two that might feel my pain. 😀 So, to make the Lilo head look fab I’m using the Luna skin in ‘peche’ tone from Avada. I just love this look and find it hard to try others, so Luna it is! And as always, I’m wearing the Lara mesh body from Maitreya.

As for the nice decor around me at home, the Visual Bench 1, RARE is from the ‘Visual’ gacha set from Concept. The ‘Beach’ sign is from the Coastal Cabin gacha set from Bee Designs. The Birdacge Decor and the Ladders & Bird Houses are from the ‘Courtil’ gacha set from Myrinne.

I’m on the deck of the Boat Shack from REDGRAVE Homes and Interiors.

We’re Having a Heat Wave!

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.

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.

Who Needs Therapy?

Who Needs Therapy?

I’ve always said, “Who needs therapy, when coffee with a good friend works just as well!”. The time spent relaxing with a mug of hot coffee brings such peace! Am I addicted to caffeine? Maybe…but there are much worse things to be addicted to! So I embrace that hot mug, snuggle down in a chair, and share common ideas and thoughts with a good friend! Who knows where the conversation will go or if tears will be shed! They usually are, and it’s not a bad thing at all. It’s embracing what makes us human, helping each other to find our way to a place of understanding. There are certain people in our lives that makes us think differently, to see things from a different angle, and to make us explore who we really are! We’re not merely flesh and bone…..it’s what’s inside…..that’s the greatest exploration a person can undertake! And what better way to explore than with a good friend, a cup of coffee….and maybe something sweet to go with it!

I mention this because I did have a very nice time with a friend last week, over a fine cup of coffee….or two! But, I’m also at the peaceful Maple Leaf Cafe on the Fairy Tale sim. It’s also home to the Raindale main store!

First off regarding my outfit, is the Prepster Top from {MYNX}! It’s a casual little sweater vest with a little top underneath! It shows a little bit of midriff to make it a little more casual, but it’s still cozy for an autumn day! This is the Hunter Roses version and it comes in a total of eight designs. It’s Maitreya and SLink mesh body compatible.

I had forgotten about these boots at the October round of Collabor88 until a friend of mine commented on how nice they were! I had wanted to return to get them….but had since forgotten! So, I ran over to grab a pair while they’re there! The Autumn Long Boots with Socks are from Zenith and are compatible with Maitreya Lara, Belleza Venus, and SLink Hourglass mesh bodies. They’re HUD driven with lots of sock colours and also lace and sole colour options! Nothing says fall like a great pair of boots!

My adorable little Meow tattoo is from FLIPPANT! It’s classic avatar compatible plus it comes with an applier for Omega compatible mesh bodies. It was for the Out of the Box Hunt, which has ended, but I’m sure it will be available at the main store soon!

I hadn’t been to SN@TCH for a long time, so I was surprised to see hair in the new releases area! This is Sookie from the naturals pack.

I’ve always loved the Wrinkled Pleated Skirt from HOC Industries(circa 2013), so I brought it out of storage for this outfit! I was so crushed to find out that HOC Industries is no more, but I was one of the lucky group members that stayed til the bitter end and scored the entire HOC Ind. collection completely full perm!

As per usual, I’m wearing the Nelly mesh head from Genesis Labs, the Lara mesh body from Maitreya, and the casual hands from SLink.
