Where Are You, Autumn!

Where Are You, Autumn!

Whether you call it autumn or fall, it’s just not happening here, in my little slice of the world! Oh…it was here…for a couple days, but about 10 days ago we got our first snow! It won’t stay, I said! It’s to early for winter, I also said! So, here I am…sitting inside looking out on a partly white yard and wishing there was cool fall breezes and falling leaves skittering down the driveway! Instead, I haven’t seen the sun for more than a few hours in the last ten days, there’s a cold wind from the north west most days, and the highs during the day aren’t above +4 C. It’s still too early for winter, but I am preparing my mind that the snow might be here to stay! I hope not….the harvest isn’t done, the gardens aren’t cleared, and I haven’t winterized anything for the animals yet! But my fingers are crossed, I have a lucky horseshoe, and I’ve had to sacrifice a bunny for a lucky rabbit’s foot! Just joking about the bunny!

I’ve been preoccupied with real life for a few days, so I know I’m late getting the lovely Layla Sandals shown! They’re exclusive to Rock Your Rack, which only runs until October 16…..but I know they’ll be at the Slipper Originals main store after that! They’re nice and strappy with a unique guitar heel that really stands out! They’re HUD driven and are compatible with the SLink, Belleza, and Maitreya feet. All proceeds from the sale of the Layla Sandals, for the duration of RYR, go to the National Breast Cancer Foundation.

The Emelia Dress, from Pretty Things, is available at the current round of Designer Showcase and comes with a variety of sizes, fitmesh, and versions fitted for mesh bodies. It’s HUD driven with three areas to customize with thirteen colours!

There is a whole bunch of things going on at Hello Dave! First off…there’s the Hello Dave Halloween Hunt going on at All Hallows at Moochie and I’m wearing one of the nails from the first of the thirteen exclusive nail appliers to hunt for. Each applier has five options and the Scare Me set has a selection of solids and illustrated. There’s also the Mystery Box at the Hello Dave main store to grab! It’s at an extremely low price til the end of the month and it contains eight applier packs!!

You can’t really see much of it, but I’m wearing the Stephanie hair from EMO-tions.

I’m made up of the Nelly 2.0 mesh head from Genesis Labs, the Lara mesh body from maitreya, and the casual hands and high feet from SLink.

I found this little place all decorated for fall at Luanes World.

Orange Makes Me Happy!

Orange Makes Me Happy!

There’s a colour for every mood, and for me orange is happy! I don’t care what tone it is, light, dark, or otherwise, I just love orange! Needless to say, I love all of autumn’s colours! The rich greens, golds, and browns comfort me! Only Mother Nature can decorate the world and not have any colours clash! At this time of year, as the leaves fall and the grass dies, the prairie’s colour palette is rich in all tones of brown, yellow, and red! Everything is still hanging on, ever so slightly, to summer’s growth! A month from now and everything will have faded to all the shades of grey, which makes the short days of winter all the more somber! But, I enjoy fall for as long as it lasts, even though today all the wonderful colours are buried under a foot of snow! Fall will return in a couple days……I hope!

I love wearing orange, but when I saw the HUD for the Urban Denim Skirt from [QE], I had a hard time choosing! The skirt comes in either the black fades or light fades and they’re on sale for the month of October for Buy Now! Buy Now is a sale event solely on Market Place, so there’s no lag to bog you down! These skirts come in five sizes and fitted for the Maitreya, Lara and SLink, Hourglass and Physique mesh bodies. You can drop in at the [QE] main store and check out some new releases too!!

The 4th of October has brought a new round of The Chapter Four! I’m always eager to see what purely perfect poses Le Poppycock has come up with! There are two packs of the Cherry Wine pose sets and also two couples poses! The Love Connection couples poses are absolutely adorable, and it’s times like these I need a man……to help me show them off!

It’s fairly early in the October round of Designer Showcase, but there’s no time like the present to do some retail therapy! DaneMarkZ has the Fashionably Dead nail applier, exclusive to Designer Showcase! The nail applier is Omega and Maitreya compatible and has a dozen colours to choose from….orange included as you can see!

I love this tattoo! It’s the In The Shadows Tattoo from Pimp My Sh!t, and like all the rest from PMS, it’s super detailed, original, and has just a bit of attitude! The tattoo is classic avatar and Omega and TMP mesh body compatible and comes in three ink tones! I’m always a medium tone kind of girl!!

I’m wearing the Jackson Wedge/Tiptoe Sneakers again, and this time around there’s a close up so you can see the great details! They’re from Mesh Agency, on Market Place, and are HUD driven with lots of colours to choose from! They’re compatible with the Maitreya, Belleza, SLink, TMP, and Eve mesh feet and also classic avatars!

The Staley Top is from Vinyl.

I love the hair and cap combination from BesomxFlite! This is from the blacks pack.

As always, I am the Nelly 2.0 mesh head from genesis Labs, the Lara mesh body from maitreya, and the casual hands and high feet from SLink.

I’m in a sketchy part of town at After The Fall for these pictures!

Yes….I’m Single!

Yes....I'm Single!

I’ve been single a long time and as time goes on no one really ever expects anything different of me! You know, when a woman is young, it’s always expected that she’ll find that certain someone, settle down, pop out a few pups, and live a happily(or not) ever after! Once I passed the ‘young woman’ stage people gave up saying anything about my marital status…then I was married for awhile……which didn’t end well….to say the least! So now, I’ve been single for a lot of years again, and I can’t imagine it any other way! It’s going to take a superhero to be better than my own company! I was married to an extrovert to the nth degree! A social butterfly like no one else! So I know that doesn’t really work well! I’m sure there are introverts and extroverts married all the time….but we were complete opposites, with neither seeing it from the other persons eyes! I enjoy my space, my privacy, and my alone time. I need a man who likes their own company and doesn’t expect me to go to social gatherings, but enjoys good conversation, coffee time, and loves animals and the great outdoors! And if he happens to be in Second Life…that’s OK too! But, he still has to have his own home!!

Ok….so there’s a reason why I’m talking about being single…but it’s kind of convoluted! While I was taking these shots I was looking closely at the Selene Corset and Panties from L.A. BoS and noticed the really great cobwebs on the chest! It reminded me of a time my wonderful sis commented that I’d been single so long I had cobwebs….ummm……you know where……oh never mind, you know where that was going! Anyhoo…….the corset and panties, along with the arm bracers, are available at the new round of Designer Showcase. It comes in seven standard sizes, but I’m wearing it on the Maitreya, Lara mesh body!

There’s a fairly new event that’s solely on Market Place, you may not know about! A new round of Buy Now starts at the beginning of each month and all the deals are on Market Place! Slipper Originals has the Maleficent Sandals on special until October 31! The fat pack is at a super low price and it has about a gazillion colour options! Really…a gazillion……I counted!! I love the spikes, the devil’s tail edging up my leg, and the incredible trident heel!!

If you get in close you’ll see one of the five colours in the Granny’s Damson Jam applier pack from Hello Dave! Drop in at the main store…there’s lots going on…and very worth your while!

I have this thing about crows and ravens, so anytime I see something with them I just have to get it! So it was when I saw the Mechanical Crow Necklace, in black, from Bamse!

The Jin hair is from KoKoLoReS.

I’m standing in front of a window in The Clock Loft sky box from DaD Designs.

As always, I’m wearing the Nelly 2.0 mesh head from Genesis Labs, the Lara mesh body from Maitreya, and the casual hands and high feet from SLink.

What’s Your Name?

What's Your Name

I love seeing all the different names in Second Life! I started SL in January of 2012, which unfortunately, was after SL stopped using last names! So, like all the others after that, I’m just ‘resident’! I always type ‘resident’ with a small ‘r’, because I don’t consider it part of my name. I’m TinLiz Winterstorm…..and proud of it! I know TinLiz is an odd name! I’d like to say it was a well thought out name that I had in my mind for a long time. But, that’s not the way it is! When first joining Second Life, when it asked for username, all the ones I had in mind were used, and I didn’t want a number in my name. So, after oodles of tries I finally managed to find a name that is kind of like what I initially wanted, and without a number. After this many years, I finally realized that ‘TinLiz’ is actually a combination of two nicknames I was called when I was a kid. And once I realized that, I started to really like this name. I do prefer ‘Liz” but TinLiz works too! Or even ‘Tin’…I don’t mind that either. Once I put on a last name I liked, I then became who I am in Second Life. Which is pretty much the real me. I don’t have the mental energy to be fake or some kind of pretend person. I’m just me! So you can call me Tin, or you can call me TinLiz, or you can call me Liz…..but please don’t call me ‘resident’!

I’m a little confused with the Fluffy and Fierce Event! Not by what it is….but in how to pick one or the other! So, I’ve picked one of each to show you! Firstly, I have on the Sydney Dress from [QE]! Sidney is fierce and also really pretty! It’s HUD driven with eight colours for the skirt layers and four colours for the top, plus it has three areas to customize. It comes in five standard sizes plus fitted versions for the Maitreya and SLink mesh bodies. While you’re at the F & F Event grab the hints at each booth, then head to the main store to find your free gift!

Also, at the Fluffy and Fierce Event is Pimp My Sh!t with two fluffy and two fierce tattoos exclusive for the event. I’m wearing the Fluffy Tiger tattoo, in medium ink tone, which is perfectly detailed and compatible with the classic avatars, plus Omega and TMP mesh bodies!

Take a gander at these absolutely stunning pumps!! The Krista Stilettos from NX-Nardcotix come in sixteen colours and are compatible with the SLink, Maitreya, and Belleza feet. They have beautiful detail, rich colours, and a unique style that stand out from the rest!

These nail appliers rock! There’s sixteen Pussycat Claws nail applier packs to choose from….and in each pack there’s one claw going to opposite direction, which goes on the thumb…a la kitty cat! Hello Dave always has something fun and exciting to paint your SLink or Omega compatible nails with!

The Miss CoCo hair, browns pack is from Vanity Hair and available at the current round of Hair O Logy.

The Mata Hari, high neck necklace from Maxi Gossamer Jewellery is a must have!

And as always I’m wearing the Nelly mesh head from Genesis Labs, the Lara mesh body from Maitreya , and the high feet and elegant hands from SLink.

The poses are from the Marilyn Series from an lar [poses].

I made a trip to Hazardous for these pictures.

The Truth is Out There!

The Truth is Out There!

You bet it is! I”m a believer! Aliens? Yea….there’s no way that us humans are the only intelligent beings in the universe! And plus I’ve heard a few stories, from completely believable people, about their close encounters of the second or third kind! Ghosts! Yup…been there and done that! My family lived in an old house that had lots of odd things happen! From strange tapping noises in the night, a hand print on a window that couldn’t be removed, and voices heard on tape recordings that weren’t heard while the taping went on. And there was always that feeling of being watched….I was always scared to be alone in that house. Sasquatch, Yeti, or Bigfoot? I’ve not had any personal encounters with any of them, but that doesn’t mean they’re not there! I don’t think we know about every living thing on this planet yet, though! Loch Ness Monster or Ogopogo? I’m not sure…but again, who knows! By the way, Ogopogo is a serpent like creature that makes it’s home in Lake Okanagan in British Columbia.

I’m a believer! I like to keep an open mind when it comes to things like this! Tune in next time when I talk about conspiracy theories, that always makes for good conversations!

I always like going for a more masculine look! I like ball caps, jean jackets, and a good slouchy guy’s pose! So to make it a little more feminine, I decided on the Parley Boots from FLIPPANT, for my footwear! They have a nice sturdy heel with leather fringe, they’re compatible with classic avatars, SLink high, and Belleza feet, plus, they’re HUD driven with eight colours!

My cool slouchy guy’s pose is Neverwhere from the Die a Little, male/unisex pose set from Le Poppycock! This set of six poses is perfect for the guys, but the girls can rock them too!

My nail appliers are from the Once Bitten 7 pack from Hello Dave! There’s twelve packs of Once Bitten available, each with a different base colour. They’re all mini packs, containing five textures! All Hello Dave nail appliers are SLink and Omega compatible!

The Amie Sweater from Slipper Originals is under my jacket! Which is unfortunate since the back has a huge heart cut out, that really shows off a sexy back! The applier for the top is compatible with SLink, Maitreya, and Omega, plus it comes with a system layer for classic avatars! Applier clothes are sooo versatile!!

The Jessie #13, blacks, hair with a snapback( it’s a ball cap to me) is a really great look! It’s from Besom & Flite and available at the current round of The Arcade Gacha Event!

The Raven Ring Set for the elegant SLink hands is from RealEvil Industires! They’re HUD driven with lots of metal and jewel colour options!

I love the Luxe Box September jeans from Blueberry! As the name says, they’re from the September round of Luxe Box!

The Aria Denim Jacket, Black, RARE is from VIVENINE ryvolter! It’s fitted for the Lara mesh body from Maitreya and it’s from a gacha, which is right at the front door to the left when you enter the main store!

As always, I’m wearing the Lara mesh body from Maitreya, the Nelly 2.0 mesh head from Genesis Labs, and the elegant hands and high feet from SLink.

I dropped in at Batterie Beach for these shots!
