Paris – The City of Love & Shopping

Paris Je T'aime
Shopping in Paris / Click to enlarge

One of my favorite events in SecondLife is Fifty Linden Friday. This is the one day of the week that we get to buy things from our favorite and new-to-us creators at a huge discount. The one day that everyone can afford to look great. This week I picked up hair from Elikatira in an exclusive FLF color pack. I also bought a ring from ieQED and a bag from C’est la vie. These both came in all colors. All necessary and great accessories.

My fitted mesh dress is new from Paper Arrow and comes fit for Maitreya, Belleza, Slink, and standard sizing. The top can be changed to one of 20 colors by hud. The photo was taken in Paris Je’Taime, where fashion happens. Or at least where a lot of bloggers take their pictures.

Manicure Monday

Acadia

Slink West opened up this weekend. This sim is adjoined to Slink and has many shops that sell Slink compatible items. There are shoes, clothes, skins, makeup, and nail appliers. You’ll find brands that you already love and ones that are yet to be discovered by you. There is also a free pair of Lulu stilettos in pink from Slink in her Slink West store.

Since today is Manicure Monday, I focused on the Slink nail applier stores. I saw many that I knew of and a few that I didn’t. The brand I chose to focus on today is new to me. Blissiere has several gacha machines in the Slink West store for her nail appliers. You can also find these in her main store. Her appliers are for Slink only. The one that I received is super cute. I thought hearts were perfect for the upcoming Valentine’s Day.

Macaron: What’s in it anyways?

La Patisserie

Macaroon, macaron, and macarena. What’s the difference? What’s in a macaron? How many macaroons can I shove in my mouth while doing the macarena anyways? Let’s ask La Patisserie owner and confections collector, Caroline Apollo.

First of all, the macaron and macaroon look nothing a like. A macaron looks more like an elegant cookie sandwich and a macaroon appears more like a cookie drop. The macaron is very colorful and can be found at weddings, showers, and tea parties. It is made with ingredients such as almond flour and can be filled with ganache. You’ll find macarons in a large variety of flavors. The macaroon on the other hand is made of coconut and contains no flour. The macaroon is often dipped in chocolate. You could prepare this treat in a few minutes, while the macaron will take hours.

I don’t believe that either of these two confections have anything to do with the song Macarena by Los del Rio. But you might find yourself dancing the steps and singing the song while enjoying either one!

As a patisserie business owner I chose to wear this outfit from Neve by ColdLogic. Each piece is color change by hud. The top has a choice of 6 colors, the skirt has 4, and there are 6 belt choices. In addition you can turn shine on or off. Each piece can also be turned off (transparent). To add even more versatility, the outfit is made for the standard avatar, Slink Physique and Hourglass, Belleza Freya and Isis, and Maitreya Lara. I was able to pick up this cute hairstyle from Oleander for FLF. The Jem Heels from Ingenue comes in 12 colors and fit Maitreya, Belleza, and Slink feet.

Vintage 1940s Dress Found / Manicure Monday

Paris Pup

Do you remember how I recently mentioned that my inventory was a mess? I do try and put things in dated folders immediately, but some things don’t seem to make it there. For example, I found this great vintage 1940s outfit while looking through my objects folder. I remembered playing this gacha. I got the bag, rare dress, and shoes on the first three pulls. It is from the last round of Shiny Shabby, and a new one begins on the 20th. The gacha should be available in Zenith’s mainstore. This dress comes with a color change hud for the top (6 colors) and skirt (4 colors).

You Won’t Believe This Scooter Riding Cat

Scooter The Cat

I’m having a little fun with this post today. Scooter the Cat and I decided to go for a ride to get some coffee from the local shop. You wouldn’t believe it if you didn’t see it, but Scooter likes to ride up front on the handle bars. He might look frightened with those big eyes, but he is having the time of his life. We warmed up with some coffee in our new Floorplan gold lid coffee cup.

Gloomy Days Can’t Bring Me Down

gloomy days

The color pink looks happy even on gloomy days. Truth’s new hairstyle for The Epiphany event is Kasimire. I chose the blonde color with pink tips. This new updo also has a hair accessory that can be mixed and matched if you have more than one. The rare accessories will be color change by hud. My Fireside Block outfit in pink and grey is new from Neve. They probably have the most versatile clothes in SecondLife. The hud for this dress allows you to change the dress to one of four colors. The sleeves and the scarf are color change or you can make them transparent.

Good Morning . It’s Manicure Monday

Good Morning

Stepping out for my early morning coffee wearing my new comfy sweater set and scarf. The newest hairstyle from Truth comes with a cozy scarf. I just want to snuggle up in it for real. The scarf has a choice of 16 colors that are driven by a hud. I am wearing it over my new Neve Dreamer sweater set. This outfit is available in 4 texture designs (neutral, lively, doily, and meadow). Each texture pack comes with even more choices. There are 4 sweater colors plus the skirt has 6 color choices. The skirt can also be turned off (transparent), or the top layer of the skirt can be a different color from the bottom layer. The boots are from Paper Arrow. I was able to score them on sale for Fifty Linden Friday. My cute poses come from An Lar Poses at The Seasons Story.

Today is Manicure Monday and I have a new nail polish set from Hello Dave. The Only By Night set comes with 35 color choices. These are made for Slink hands only. Which is fine by me. As you may know, Slink allows you to put a different color polish on each finger and toe.
