Come On….I’d Rather Be Shopping!

Come On....I'd Rather Be Shopping!

I told myself that I’d get a post done today before I go to the Thereafter Event. I really really want to go to it because I think deep down I have survivalist down deep in me just waiting to emerge at the right time. I’m sure of it, what else can explain my need to stockpile dry goods and extra supplies. I’m not a hoarder, no way, that’s a whole different thing! I know, I know, you’re saying I’m a hoarder, but really if something happens like a total loss of the power grid I’ll be prepared. I’m ready, bring it on! I say to the world, ‘do your damnedest, just try to break me’! I do, I say that all the time. It usually comes after I’m done crying when the truck won’t start! πŸ˜€

Ok…..I’m going to type fast and not correct typos, how does that grab ya? LoL. First off, the ‘Nerissa Nails’ are from Slipper Originals and have been at Designer Circle, but it’s over today. Yea…I’m a little slow…so sorry, Elle! They’re full mesh nails fitted for the Maitreya bento hands. All you need to do is turn off the Maitreya nails and apply these and you’re done! They’re HUD driven with all kinds of colour options, including being able to colours the enamel of the nails individually! The stars and anchors can be on or not, and the stripes can be coloured separately, too. They’re perfect for a nautical outfit, or just lounging in your undies!

Ok, the new round of Men Only Monthly doesn’t start until the 20th, but I’m giving you a heads up on the new release from !NFINITY. The ‘Sharktooth Necklace’ is exclusive to MOM and it’s perfectly detailed and textured. It’s completely resizable via drop down menu so even though it starts out fitted for men, it was easily reduced down to my size! There’s 3 tooth options, 2 metals, and 4 cord colours and it’s 100% original mesh! Remember, MOM starts on the 20th.

The ‘Irina Shirt and Panties’ is a gorgeous creation from Asteria and this, and also a ruffled corset, are exclusive to the Mesh Body Addicts Fair 2017, which only has four more days to go! You have until August 21st to shop the MBA Fair….don’t wait to long!

The ‘KOMA’ hair, from the Blacks pack, is from Argrace! One of my favourite short styles!

As per usual, I’m wearing the ‘Luna’ skin in ‘peche’ tone from Avada on the ‘Lilo’ bento mesh head from Catwa along with the ‘Lara’ mesh body, including bento hands, from Maitreya. I’ve added one of the 12 colour options from the ‘Satin Eyeshadow’ Catwa applier from Buzzeri. It’s available now at the ‘Blush‘ event!

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

The ‘Two Initial Charm Bracelet’, on my left wrist, is from the ‘Charm Bracelet’ gacha set from Izzie’s!

This pose is from the ‘Get Down’ singles beach poses from Aerial Poses and Props.

Tattoo You

Tattoo You

It used to be only a certain type of person got a tattoo! It was the rebels and the bikers then, but it’s become very mainstream now and much more accepted by most people. I know there’s lots of people that frown on them still, but I’m not one of them. I will admit to having a couple of my own in real life. I’ve had them for quite a few years, and thankfully I put them in places where gravity won’t affect them too much. Gravity is a harsh mistress, you know! πŸ˜€ I have one on my ankle and one on my shoulder, both fairly small and covered most of the year. I sometimes forget I have them, really. One of my real life neighbours is quite covered in tattoos. I’ve not seen him without a shirt, but he has full sleeves and there’s tattoo peaking out of the neckline of his T shirt so he appears to be covered. So with him looking very much like what you’d think of as a biker or a rebel it was surprising the first time I talked to him. He never swears, he’s super polite, and always calls me dear, in a nice way. He doesn’t have a motorcycle, but he rebuilds old cars and is exceptionally good at it! But you know what I mean, he’s tattooed, he has big bushy hair down past the tops of his shoulders, his beard is a little longer than that and he has tattoos, so you’d think he’s the stereotypical rebel. But no, he’s just a nice guy living his life and would give you the shirt off his back if you needed it. I hope one day someone needs it, I’d like to see how much of him is tattooed!

When I started my Second Life I fell in love pretty much right from the first with virtual tattoos. The quality of them has improved immensely since I was young in this virtual world and with the mesh bodies the detailing can be incredible! I’m so excited to see PIMP MY SHI!T back with new releases for the August round of the Bodyfy event. I’m wearing the Octo Tattoo in medium ink tone, although it comes in colour also and has three ink tones. It’s Omega and TMP compatible and can be worn on all layers. So happy to see PMS back in action!! Bodyfy runs until August 30.

The pose I’m using here is one of the five in the ‘Suri’ set of poses from Imitaion. I’ve always loved SL poses and Imitation is one of my favourite pose stores. The sets are all bento enabled and they’re so expressive and alive. I really think Bento hands have changed the way bloggers and photographers can create photos that really show emotion and bring their scenes to life. You can also find Imitation on Market Place.

The Chapter Four has always been one of my favourite SL events, and I’m so lucky to be able to feature all the incredible work by the designers who participate. I’m featuring some of the gacha items from the ‘Dark Oak’ gacha set from Bee Designs. The Arm Chair, Side Table, and the Poster are all part of the set which has eight common and two RARE to play for. The Chapter Four runs until the end of the month.

The rest of the items that make my home cozy are the ‘Filmore Factory Clock’ from 7 Emporium, the ‘Star Globe,RARE’ lamp from the ‘Vintage Lighting’ gacha set from ::Static:: and available at The Gacha Garden. The ‘Majestic Radio’ is from the ‘Vintage Radio’ gacha set from KraftWork. Each radio in the set has two versions, one scripted for use as a radio and one for decor only. The house plants on the left are from {what next}. The ‘Reading Pile’ of books is from a gacha set from Apple Fall and the books beside the chair are from [zerkalo].

And as for me? I’m wearing the ‘Candice’ set from [Azuchi]. It includes the panties and top, it comes in ten colours and is available at the current round of ~uber~. I’m wearing the ‘Luna’ skin in ‘peche’ tone from Avada on the ‘Lilo’ bento mesh head from Catwa along with the ‘Lara’ mesh body(including bento hands) from Maitreya. I’ve added a little bit of ‘Smoky Eyeshadow’ from Izzie’s to the look. My eyes are from the ‘Nissa Eyes’ pack from Zombie Suicide and the WAKANA hair is from Argrace.

5 Things I Learned the Hard Way

5 Things I Learned the Hard Way

As I sit here, I’m thinking about all the times in my life that I’ve learned lessons. Sometimes you learn something because of the experience of someone else or just by reading. That poor stick man has taught me plenty of things, since he’s in peril wherever I go. You’d think he’d learn that the floor is slippery when wet or that he could fall if he climbs on something. But, that’s a whole different story! I’ve had to learn things the hard way to really grasp what could happen. So here goes, 5 things I’ve learned the hard way!

1) When a road sign says ‘No Exit’ it means there’s no exit’. Not a good thing to learn while driving an 18 wheeler.

2) If a cow doesn’t want her newborn calf touched, don’t touch it! The cow can run faster mad than I can scared.

3) When using an electric hedge trimmer, do not insert finger in the blade, it can cut, fingernail and all.

4) There’s a difference between a cat and a skunk, when you spot movement at your feet and it’s pitch black outside, don’t say, ‘Hi Gus’, and nudge him out of the way with your foot, unless you’re sure it’s your cat ‘Gus’ and not a skunk.

5) If a guy seems like a jerk when he’s your boyfriend, don’t marry him. He’ll be a jerk when he’s your husband, too! I should have listened to my gut!

Those are five things I’ve learned, by living through them. The scars are all faded now, well except for my finger, from the hedge trimmer incident! That still hurts, but it’s only been 4 days! πŸ˜€

And now, how bout some Second Life fashion!

I’ll start off with the ‘Delicate Tattoo’ from Queen of Ink. It’s truly delicate and so well placed, perfectly drawing the eye to nice shoulders and dΓ¨colletage. It’s compatible with the Maitreya, SLink and TMP mesh bodies as well as mesh bodies that are Omega enabled. There’s also system layers for the classic avatars. It comes with 2 ink tones, I’m wearing the 50% option. The ‘Delicate Tattoo’ can be found, for a few more days, at the July round of The Chapter Four, and it’s in the Hidden Room. So when you land at TCF just walk slowly backwards and let yourself free fall! πŸ˜€

Also in the Hidden Room at The Chapter Four is the Basement backdrop from Isuka. It has a land impact of 14 and is perfect for a grungy type atmosphere. The pop and ice machines are not part of it, but there is piping and the power box, along with some signage that is. It’s nice to be able to set up a great photo area right at home, where the lag is low and the rezzing is easy.

The ‘Sunset Shadow’ is a new release from Veechi and it’s available at the newly opened round of ~uber~. It’s Catwa(seen here) and Lelutka mesh head compatible and the pack contains nine colours, all vibrant and summery.

The ‘Juliet’ top from Scandalize is a cool and cute little top perfect for days like today, hot and sunny! It’s fitted for the SLink, Maitreya(seen here), and Belleza mesh bodies and comes in oodles of colours, or a fatpack to mix and match three different areas.

The ‘SHIRABE’ hair from Argrace is one of my faves. Short and perky = perfect for me.

My eyes are one of the ten colours in the ‘Nissa Eyes’ pack from Zombie Suicide.

You can see just a small part of my nails, but take my word for them being cute. They’re from the ‘Heart Hole,black’ nail applier set from PIAD. They’re SLink and Maitreya compatible.

The ‘Luna’ skin in ‘peche’ tone from Avada looks simply divine on the ‘Lilo’ bento mesh head from Catwa and the Lara mesh body from Maitreya.

The pose I’m using is from the ‘Avant Garde’ male pack of poses from XXY.

The pop and ice machines are both from 7 Emporium. The Ice machine is at the current round of ~uber~ and the Pop Machine is at the main store. Both are fully animated, the Pop Machine has eight animations and the Ice Machine has singles, couples and an adult version, too.

My Name is Nobody

My Name is Nobody

When I take the photos and write my blog posts, I go about it as if no one will see it. I’m not doing any of to be noticed or become Second Life famous if there is such a thing, I just enjoy the whole process that is blogging. So, when random people instant message me saying hello, and various other forms of greetings, I’m always baffled how they picked me to talk to. When I ask why they’re talking to me, the answer is ‘your blog’ or ‘flickr page’, it’s then that I realize that people do read and view my pictures and blog posts. I guess I shouldn’t be surprised since I do get views on both. πŸ™‚ I don’t mind it really, I’m Canadian so I’m usually fairly polite, but I find it odd when the person is insulted that I won’t friend them or meet them somewhere. By declining the invitations I’m not doing it to be mean, but I just don’t friend random people, or accept invites anywhere if I don’t know them. I’d like to think that I don’t have to be on a friends list for someone to find me to talk to, if they really want to talk to me I can be found. So on that note, thank you for viewing and reading, I’m very thankful to have such great followers, and if you’d like to chat with me, at least try to be a little bit original! πŸ˜€

And now back to our regularly scheduled programming! First up is the pose! I have to admit that I’m addicted to poses! If I see a pose stand somewhere to try out, I’m on it. A pose plays a vital part of Second Life photography, so picking one that’s appropriate to the mood and feel of the pic is important. This is a pose from the ‘Amy’ set of poses from Imitation, and it’s a simple pose, but the little nuances make it natural, relaxed, and real. You can find the ‘Amy’ set of poses at the Imitation main store and on Market Place.

Next up is the ‘Cherry Blossom’ tattoo from Avada. I love the placement of this tattoo, and the soft colouring and falling petals are perfect. It comes in two tones, fresh and faded, and is compatible with the Maitreya, SLink, Belleza, TMP, and Omega enabled mesh bodies. Remember that Avada was formerly Sinful Curves Skins, so you can expect quality and proven great customer service. As always, I’m wearing the ‘Luna’ skin in ‘peche’ tone, also from Avada, on the Lilo bento mesh head from Catwa and the Lara mesh body from Maitreya.

I love this frilly and feminine swimsuit from NX-Nardcotix. The ‘Daisy Bikini’ has a thong bottom and a pretty bra to accentuate all the assets a woman has. I love my curves. πŸ˜€ It comes fitted for the Maitreya, SLink, and Belleza mesh bodies and comes in eleven colours or in a full pack.

The ‘MAYU’ hair from Argrace creates a nice breeze, wherever you may be. It contains a mirror version, also.

I’ve added a touch of make up to the skin. The ‘Blossom Shadow’ from A R T E is perfect for me. It’s available at a reduced price while at eBento.

The ‘windows to my soul’ are one of the ten options in the ‘Nissa Eyes’ from Zombie Suicide.

Another Year Older

Another Year Older

It was my real life birthday this past week and not surprisingly I had to endure a rendition of Happy Birthday sung by my family! I will say it was better than usual, probably because I wasn’t singing!! There was a birthday cake which had candles on it for me to extinguish, and with my sister sitting across from me with the camera at the ready, I just pursed my lips ever so slightly so I’d look at least half decent in the shot! There’s nothing like having a picture taken with cheeks fully extended in mid blow, it’s not the most attractive of looks, but it’s family tradition!! We had lots of laughs and we all enjoyed the cake, of course! I can’t believe how fast birthdays come and go, I know having lots of birthdays is much better than the alternative, but do they have come and go in the blink of an eye? I can’t remember every birthday I’ve celebrated, they all kind of get mixed up in my head, if you’ve had as many birthdays as me, you’d forget them too!

It’s been a few days since my last post, and the time between posts has nothing to do with my birthday! I really struggled to get a picture that I was happy with. I think I’ve taken about 40, in three separate attempts and none of them really thrilled me. Out of frustration and passing time I settled on this one! My one worry is that my pictures all start looking the same, I don’t want that to happen, but when creativity is lacking it’s hard to avoid it! But anyway, here’s the info you’ve been waiting for, so patiently!

I always make a trip to all the men’s sales events, and I always find something that catches my eye! This time around it’s the ‘Feather Necklace’ from !NFINITY at Men Only Monthly, or MOM for short!. It comes in gold(seen here), silver, platinum, and black and each is HUD driven with two colour options for the cord. The detailing of it is incredible and with it scripted for easy resizing, I made it small enough for me, easily! I feel like a free spirit when I wear it! MOM runs until July 15.

The June round of Hair O Logy runs until June 30, so there’s still time to get the deals! I’m wearing ‘Vanessa’ from [KoKoLoReS], here and with the wispy tendrils around the face it’s so pretty! [KoKoLoReS] has a total of three styles at this round of Hair O Logy and all are 50% off for the duration! This is from HUD 01, which contains 30 colours!

I’m using a pose from the Solid Gold B set of poses from Le Poppycock.

I joined the Luxe Box group for the June round and Blueberry released the very pretty ‘Cutie Tops’. I forgot how fun Luxe Box is, all those goodies to open, it’s like Christmas in the summer!

The Malena Denim Shorts are from Addams! I could live in shorts all summer and with a pair like this, who wouldn’t want to?

You can see a bit of the ‘Les Fleur’ tattoo from Pimp My Sh!t. This is one of my faves!

I’m slowly getting used to seeing the ‘new me’ with the Catwa Lilo bento mesh head! I think I look a little angry sometimes, but I’m still the same ‘me’ inside! I’m wearing the Luna skin in ‘peche’ tone from Avada(formerly known as Sinful Curves Skins). I’m wearing one of the nine selections of eye shadow from the ‘Monroe Shadow’ pack from Veechi. I’ve added the Catwa applier of the ‘Nissa Eyes’ from Zombie Suicide which are available at the current round of APPLIQUE. The rest of me is the Lara mesh body from Maitreya.

I’m at my favourite spot at, Hazardous, for this shot!
