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.

A Hot Night, Hennessy, and Me!

A Hot Night, Hennessy, and Me!

It’s been a hot summer, so far!! The days are long and the sun is high in the sky for what seems like forever, burning down on the land with it’s unforgiving heat! We’ve had little rain, so everything seems scorched with the grass yellowing and that new fresh look of spring long gone! On days that it gets up to +30°C and higher, are the worst. We tell ourselves that it’s nice because it’s a ‘dry’ heat but really. dry or not, it’s still flippin’ hot! The nights that don’t cool down are the hardest to take. I count on cool nights to get the temperature down in the house with a nice cool breeze coming in the windows, but every now and then the night just won’t cool down! When it’s 6 Am and the thermometer already says +25°C, there’s going to be no escape! I know to anyone from the south western States are laughing at me right now, but you have to remember that the winters here are frigid so the difference in summer to winter is sometimes 75°C and more! So when we say it’s hot, it may not be to others, but for us in the great white north, it’s HOT! My answer to this hot summer night, is to strip off my pyjama top, grab a smooth and delicious bottle of Hennessy, and sit on the dock with my feet in the water! I’m not sure how long I’ll sit out here, but with the stars in the sky, the soft breeze on my bare skin, and a little bit of a buzz, it might be awhile!

I’d like to welcome Imitation to my little family of Featured Designers!! Their bento poses and pose props are a pleasure to work with with natural and expressive poses along with bento hand positions that really add to a look! The devil’s in the details, so they say! 🙂 I’m using one of the seven poses from the ‘Kendra’ set, which includes the bottle of Hennessy to pose with. This set is available now at the Imitation main store and Market Place.

The gorgeous butterfly tattoo on my shoulder is ‘Morpho’ and it’s a recent release from Metamorphoses Tattoo. It includes 2 tones of ink and is compatible with classic avatars plus just about every mesh body known to man! The beautiful details, the soft lines, and the fact that it’s a butterfly all make this tattoo perfect for the barely there summer tops! Love!

I’m completely in love with the ‘Mila’ hair from [KoKoLoReS]! This is from the Balayage pack and the detailed texturing is just phenomenal!! It’s available until July 16 at the Hair Fair 2017.

I’m keeping it cool with just pyjama bottoms for my outing! I hope the neighbours are away tonight!! These are the Slumber Party Shorts, pinstripe from the Slumber Party gacha set by Tres Blah!

My whole look begins with the Lilo bento mesh head from Catwa with the Luna skin in ‘peche’ tone from Avada. Along with the Lara mesh body from Maitreya.

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.

I Am the Highway

I Am the Highway

Pearls and swine bereft of me
Long and weary my road has been
I was lost in the cities
Alone in the hills
No sorrow or pity for leaving I feel

I am not your rolling wheels
I am the highway
I am not your carpet ride
I am the sky

I Am The Highway ~Audioslave~

It’s this time of year that the call of the road is strong in me! That sounds like something Yoda would say! I mean the literal highway, not the figurative one! The mornings are fresh and sunny and there’s nothing nicer than the thought of jumping in the truck and heading out somewhere. It doesn’t matter where, for me the trip is more important than the destination! The road has long been romanticized, and for good reason! That feeling of freedom, of leaving behind the old and embarking on an adventure is exciting! I haven’t set out on a trip in a long time, and I kind of miss it. I remember the feeling of being on the road, waking up to a gorgeous early morning with a fresh cup of coffee and 600 miles ahead of me, which is a legal day of driving in the U.S of A! On the perfect summer mornings, no matter what part of the world I was in, the highway was freedom and peace! I could sing along with the music, talk to myself, or just enjoy the view from the drivers seat! It’s those days that make me long for the highway, the bad days that always came with the good, not so much!

I’m out on my favourite stretch of road at The Last Forever, again! I’m not sure I’ll last very long walking on the road in these sky high heels, but I’ll look good doing it! The ‘Farrah Sandals’ in paisley are a new take on one of my favourite shoes from Slipper Originals! The super high platform and the strap across the toes are the perfect look for summer! These are reminiscent of the look from the early 80’s when spike heels and cut off jeans were all the rage! For a limited time, the ‘Farrah Snadals’ in paisley and polka dot fatpacks are on sale for a super low price at the SO main store! You can’t miss them when you land at the store and who can resist them?

HelaMiyo has released a new set of poses and they’re perfect to show off a simple outfit such as this, or any outfit for that matter! The ‘Hoodie’ pose set contains five poses and their mirrors and is available at the HelaMiyo main store!

Me, and half of the female population in Second Life have the newest jeans from Blueberry! The DWL Classic Skinny Jeans fit incredibly well!

I’m wearing the high feet from SLink with the French Ready nail applier from Hello Dave!
