Slipper Originals

What's In Your Pockets?

I remember the days of having a laundry day, where all the laundry is done all in one day to get it out of the way for the week. But, with the advent of automatic washers, laundry is pretty much whenever I feel like it or it’s become a necessity. So, today it’s a necessity and I’ve done a couple loads of things I can’t do without. One of the loads is what I wear around home doing my outside work, and while I was emptying pockets I was wondering what non farming people find in their pockets. Today I found a washer for a garden hose, a piece of baler twine, a drill bit, and a fence staple. It doesn’t take me long to gather up a plethora of things throughout my daily travels! So with that in mind, what do people in other occupations find when they do laundry? A mechanic probably finds nuts or bolts, a carpenter maybe has the stub of a pencil in his, and maybe a plumber has an empty spool of teflon tape. One thing I don’t want to know is what a doctor, meat cutter, or funeral director finds in theirs!

The weather here has taken a turn for the worse and it’s time to bring out the toques and mitts. So, in honour of that I’ve chosen the ‘Mira’ hair, which features a much needed beanie, from Besom. This is the extensions pack available at the October round of Collabor88 and it contains a whopping 108 colours! The bangs are an add on that, when worn, have three styling options to make it just the way you like!

Make sure to mark the Underdog Event down on your Second Life calendar! It starts on October 14 and make sure to grab the ‘Crescent Necklace’ from Slipper Originals while you’re there! It’s HUD driven with about a million options including on/off options for the kitty and the stars as well as 14 colours for the moon, bead, and rope. The Underdog Event runs from October 14 to November 4.

I’ve completely fallen in love with this skin from Avada! This skin isn’t available to the public yet, but stay tuned and you can find out when and where it’ll be when it’s released. It’s ‘Raine’ in ‘miel’ tone and it’s luscious lips are the best part, in my opinion…although it’s all gorgeous! I’ve added one of the options from the ‘Sydney’ eyeshadow Catwa applier from Le Boheme. As always my look all starts with the ‘Lilo’ bento mesh head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

The V Neck Sweater from Tres Blah was part of a previous Luxe Box which I found in the back of my inventory all wrinkled and dusty! It’s definitely sweater weather.

The ‘Kaylah Jeans’ from Just Because are available at the current round of ~uber~, and you may not be able to see this, but I’m wearing them with the ‘Anna Boots with socks’ also from JB! The jeans are fitted for the major mesh bodies and there’s a few versions, including one to wear with these boots! Love them!

My eyes are from the ‘Nissa Eyes’ pack from Zombie Suicide.

This pose is from the ‘Barcelona’ set of poses from PosESioN.

I’ve taken in the sights at The Last Forever while taking this pic.

Heyyyy.........My Face is Up Here

While checking out my stats and profile on flickr I found out which of my pictures is most popular. It’s solely rated on the number of faves it has, and I will admit it’s a pretty good one, but, it’s of my a**! yea…of all of my thousand and some pictures that I’ve put on flickr, it’s my a** that everyone wants to see! So, because of that, today I’ll show you my face! You remember my face……it has two eyes, a nose, two lips and a look that brings on the question, ‘what are you mad at?’! And I have to say, ‘It’s just my face!’. In Second Life I have a fairly pretty face that I think represents ‘me’ fairly well. I think it expresses who I am in real life and I look at Liz and see myself. They say the eyes are the window to the soul, but how does anyone see my soul when they only look at my a**? 😛 I’m sure I’ll need to put my back to the camera again and feature my backside, but until then, I guess you can check out my most popular picture on flickr, I’m starting to think it’s my best feature! 😀

Firstly, the ‘Felicity Palm Ring’ from Slipper Originals is a unique piece of jewellery that really stands out from the crowd. It’s a simple band with a gorgeous set of gems set into it to accent the back of the hand! They’re fitted for the Maitreya and SLink bento hands and there’s left and right versions included. Like all HUDs from SO, there’s a schwack of colour options which consists 14 gems and six metals. It’s available for the next few days at Designer Circle, and will then be at the Slipper Originals main store.

At first glance you may think that it’s just another picture of Liz, but if you look closely you may see some slight changes. I’ve been given a chance to preview an upcoming release of a new skin from Avada, and I couldn’t be happier! This is ‘Raine’ in ‘miel’ tone and the detailing is incredible! These lips are begging to be kissed, and by someone that knows how! 😀 You won’t be able to get your own copy of this fab skin until November, but until then….just keep looking at me! Thanks so much, Stephanie for this exclusive preview!

I’m using a pose from the ‘Xion’ set of poses from Animosity! The set includes 6 poses and I want to remind everyone that they’re made for a male avatar so the ladies may have to make some adjustments to their shape for them to work properly. I love the diversity and uniqueness of poses from Animosity, they can really help get the creative juices flowing! The ‘Xion’ set is available at Men Only Monthly until October 15 and then watch for them at the Animosity main store, which is currently under construction.

Pimp My Sh!t is back and going strong in the October round of the Bodyfy event! I’m wearing the ‘Smokey Eyeshadow’ set that’s an exclusive to the event. It’s compatible with Catwa, Lelutka and Omega heads and also classic avatars. I love the smokey look for a dark and mysterious aura!

I new I’d be coming back to wear the ‘Amal’ hair from [BAD HAIR DAY]. It’s just that kind of hair style that I can put on knowing it looks good and I can explore Second Life with confidence! This colour is from the ‘browns’ pack and it’s the first look I’ve shown of all one colour, since I usually opt for a combination of naturals and colours. The [BAD] colour palette is huge and each hair has two layers that can be customized independently along with the inclusion of a mirrored version.

My eyes are one of the ten selections from the ‘Nissa Eyes’ set of eyes from Zombie Suicide.

You’re getting a glimpse of the strap of the ‘Sideview Bodysuit’ from Vale Koer and available at the current round of ~uber~, which runs until October 23.. It’s really worth seeing the whole thing….it’s so sexy! 😉

As usual, I’m wearing the ‘Lilo’ bento mesh head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya, bento hands included.

You Might Be a Canadian.......

…..if you wear a ‘toque’ in the winter instead of a ‘woolen cap’ or ‘beanie’.

…..if you make a run to the ‘LBS’ for a ‘two-four’.

…..if try your luck at ‘Rrrrrroll up the Rim’ at Tim’s when you get your Double-Double.

…..when a guy wears ‘gitch’ instead of ‘tighty whities’.

…..if your favourite potato chips are ‘Ketchup’.

…..if you ask your friend to, ‘lend me a toonie, eh!’

I have to say that these phrases are used in Canada, but it’s almost like we’re mocking ourselves when we use some of them. Although I do wear a ‘toque’ and like my coffee From Tim’s, but I like it with double cream no sugar. I try to win something when Tim’s has ‘Rrrrroll up the Rim’, which starts late February, but I usually have no luck. I don’t hear anyone say ‘gitch’ very much anymore, but I think that’s mainly because underwear doesn’t seem to be a topic that I talk about with anyone. The word ‘gitch’ can also be interchangeable with ‘ginch’ or ‘gonch’ too, it just depends on what part of the country you live in. Personally, I don’t really like Ketchup chips, they’re a funny red colour and don’t taste very good to me. The word ‘toonie’ is used often, why say ‘two dollars’ when you can say ‘toonie’! I do say ‘eh’ now and then, it’s just natural, but the belief that Canadians say ‘aboot’ instead of ‘about’ is not all encompassing. I live in the west and we say ‘about’, even we notice when people from the eastern provinces say ‘aboot’! Why do I mention Canada? Well, behind me in this photo is the ‘Trailer Park Boys’, as I’m sure anyone who has seen the show knows. If you haven’t seen it, you should watch…..it’s quite funny, and very Canadian! You too can pose with the Trailer Park Boys, just drop in at ‘Mother Road‘ and you’ll see all kinds of great scenes for photography! Paul has done a wonderful job with this sim!

I’m caught up in this book and I don’t care what’s going on around me, I need to find out what happens. While I’m reading, take a look at the beautiful new group gift from Slipper Originals. The ‘Love Rings’ are fitted for the Maitreya bento hands, the gift includes left and right rings, and they’re HUD driven with 6 metals. The Slipper Original group has a one time fee of 49L to join and in return you get a 5% discount on main store purchases and regular group gifts.

This book and pose is from the ‘Book Lovers’ sets of poses and props from Le Poppycock. There’s two sets, both including 6 poses with various props to add in each set. This is pose is called ‘Portable Magic’! Which a book is, of course! These sets are at the current round of The Liaison Collaborative, which runs until the end of the month.

I wanted to add a little extra colour to my manicure so I’m wearing one of the 9 colour options in the ‘Fall Tipped Polish’ from ZoZ Icon. They’re available at the current round of Cosmopolitan, which runs until October 7.

The ‘Mandala Tattoo’ is from .::INKer::.. It comes in two tones and is compatible with the big 3 mesh bodies for women plus Omega and also the SLink and Signature mesh bodies for men.

The ‘Fitted Cardigan’ is from the paper arrow co.. It’s fitted for the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya and available at the September round of ~uber~.

The ‘HOTARU’ hair is from Argrace.

The ‘Lilla, gold’ glasses are a work of art from Air.

My look all begins with the ‘Luna’ skin in ‘miel’ tone from Avada on the ‘Lilo 3.0’ bento mesh head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya. I’ve added a little bit of eye shadow from the ‘Harvest Shadow’ from Veechi. My eyes are from the ‘Nissa Eyes’ pack from Zombie Suicide.

Let It Go

There are a few things in life that I’ve learned. Of course, things don’t always sink in the first time around, but the art of ‘letting it go’ is an important one for me. I went for a lot of years carrying around anger, hate, grief, and lots of other emotions that did nothing but drag me down. There came a time that I found out that a person can only keep so much inside. I hated a lot of people for what I believed they did to me and I held grudges and vowed to never forget. You know what? The only one that hurt was myself. The other person didn’t seem bothered by it, if they were even aware of how I felt at all. I learned that the most important thing I could do for myself is forgive. I don’t mean you have to phone someone up and say it to them. When I chose to forgive it wasn’t for them, it was for my inner peace. Once I’d forgiven the person for what they did, I could then let it go. It doesn’t make me a weak person, it makes me a happy one. I read once the question, ‘would you rather be right or happy?’ and it really hit home. I may be the one who was wronged, but to remain firm in knowing I was right did nothing but keep the anger or hurt festering inside me. I’ve worked on forgiving everyone who I feel have hurt me, and it’s rather freeing. Think of it as taking a balloon filled with helium and putting all of your pain and anger in it, then on a lovely fall day hold it up, close your eyes, and let it go!

I want to say how honoured I am to be chosen the Slipper Originals Blogger of the Month for August. Elle has a few wonderful ways of celebrating this milestone and one of them is naming one of her creations after the blogger. So, I’m really proud to show you the ‘Liz Bento Rings’ which are exclusive to the current round of Designer Circle! The set includes four rings per hand and the HUD for them is HUGE! Each hand can be customized separately as well as each ring on each finger. So if you want to mix your metals….go for it! If you want to take some of the set off, you can do that! And if you just want to wear one little pinkie ring, consider it done!! Thank you, Elle, your creations are what make blogging for you such a joy!

The ‘Coco Leather Jacket’ is an older release from LEGAL INSANITY but I think it’s completely timeless! There’s nothing more comfy than a leather jacket that’s been worn enough to feel like it’s giving a hug. The top can be worn with the jacket, or not, it’s up to you and it’s HUD driven with 12 colours to pick from plus two metals, and…….the sleeves of the jacket can be changed to fabric with 7 colours to customize. It comes in 7 colours and this is the brown version. You’ll find it at the LEGAL INSANITY main store.

The ‘Ribbon Collar’ is my choker of choice! It’s from !NFINITY and comes in three metals with each being HUD driven with 7 ribbon colours.

The ‘MAYU’ hair is my favourite breezy hairdo. It’s from Argrace.

My look all starts with the ‘Luna’ skin in ‘miel’ tone from Avada on the ‘Lilo’ bento mesh head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya. I’ve added one of the fifteen colours from the ‘Dark Metallic Eyeshadow’ HUD from Izzie’s.

This is the ‘Aloft’ pose from Del May. It’s expressive without being over done! Perfect in my opinion. 🙂

The pretty balloon(you’ll have to take my word that it’s a pretty balloon) is from the ‘Garden Party Set’ of the ‘Fairylight Balloons’ from +Half-Deer+.

I haven’t been to Hazardous for awhile so thought it was time to stop in and enjoy the view.

Acrophobia

I don’t have many phobias…….but this is one that I do have. I’ve had fear of heights all my life and it’s a funny thing. I can visualize not being afraid…I can run it through my mind that nothing will happen to me…but once I get past the first step on a ladder all bets are off! I’m either afraid I’m going to fall or afraid I’m going to jump! It makes no sense…because I’m holding on for dear life and usually if I did fall, the only thing that would happen is I’d end up standing on the ground 2 feet below. I’ve pushed my limits of this fear in the past. I climbed the silo we had on the farm…and it was 75′ straight up…..I didn’t see much while doing that…going up…..standing up there…or going down. I felt the breeze on my face while I squeezed my eyes shut and prayed a lot! I’ve been in a hot air balloon a few times. I was OK up there if I didn’t think too much about it. The fact that I stood on the plywood floor of a wicker basket with nothing keeping me up there except nylon and hot air had to be far from my mind, if I was to enjoy the trip! The small issue of the ten foot flame shooting high into the nylon was another issue I had. Oh…btw…who in the h*ll invented that? You take a tank of propane..light it on fire, then put a huge nylon balloon around it and stick a wicker basket below…….and then….get in and go a mile up in the air, drifting over God knows where! Now that I think of it….that’s just crazy!!

Today I’m high up on the windmill at the beautiful Nevada-esque sim ‘Mother Road‘. There’s lots of new stuff going on at the sim, with the expansion and all. Who doesn’t want more desert in their life?

I’ve made the climb while wearing the upcoming Monthly Midnight Madness outfit that’s going to be available at Slipper Originals this coming Friday night and going on into Saturday morning. The ‘Sannie Top’ will be free to the first 1500 who slap that board starting Friday midnight to Saturday noon. And then, from noon Saturday to midnight the ‘Sannie Shorts’ will be free to the first 1500. Optional add on HUDs will be available for a very low price. So, don’t forget about Monthly Midnight Madness…it only happens once a month!

It’s not a really close look at the ‘Betsy Sandals’ from NX-Nardcotix, but with the big happy bow and the unique strap down the foot, they really stand out! They come in eight colours and fit the SLink, Maitreya, and Belleza flat feet.

The MAYU hair is a nice breezy hair from Argrace.

You can see I’m wearing a necklace, but that’s about it. It’s the ‘Sequoia, medium Necklace’ from EMPYREAN Forge and available at the current round of FaMESHeD.

The whole start of my beautiful self is the ‘Luna’ skin in ‘miel’ tone from Avada, on the ‘Lilo’ bento mesh head from Catwa, the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya and the flat feet from SLink.

This is the ‘Breathe Me Back to Life’ unisex pose from :LW: Poses. It’s an individual pose that includes the pose with mirror and pose balls for easy posing.
