Chicken Shoes for the Sole / Manicure Monday

Shoes for the Sole

Shoes are one of my weaknesses. I love them almost as much as bags.  Rebel Hope has two new mesh shoes at Tres Chic (shown above top row). Hurry over because the event ends March 10th at noon. The Rebel Hope Jasmine shoe has a leather texture, while the Zalina shoe comes in a reptile texture. Both come in 8 colors and 3 metal choices.

Ingenue made these new heels for the March round of The Arcade (shown above bottom row). The Oksana Heels are available in 16 colors. Each pair that you win will fit the Belleza, Slink, or Maitreya body. It is made to fit by hud. I really love this way of finding shoes to fit your feet. As always, Betty has paid attention to detail on these new heels.

Shoes for the Sole

I went with a white pedicure today since the toes barely show through the end of the Oksana Heel. With Spring here and it getting warmer I think we should get some designs on our toes. I’m wearing the February Group Gift from Livia on Maitreya Lara feet. The Flickr picture shows the design on the toes that is for Slink and Omega. For the Maitreya feet they are only white. I’m happy with that although the added colors are pretty and the ad picture can be misleading.

My bunny and chicks are from The Arcade. The make peep noises that can be turned on or off. And the closet is from Bazar at Relay for Life. I will show this better in another post.

Rental on Lo Lo

Commercial land is for rent on my sim Lo Lo. I’ve owned this sim since 2006 and do not plan on going anywhere. So, if you are looking for a steady home for your main store please contact Caroline Apollo. 1/8 to 1/4 sim available.

Bring it on, Snow. I have Ice Cream

Bring it on

It does not matter how cold it is outside when it comes to ice cream. It is a great treat even though ice cream is freezing itself. I can have ice cream anytime, and that makes my world a happier place. Don’t worry if you can’t get to the ice cream shop because of heavy snow outdoors. You can make your own snow ice cream. I found you a recipe by The Suburban Soapbox.

I recently purchased the weather system from Botanical. I love how it can produce rain or snow. It can stay out on the sim year round since it is seasonal. The system does not run on particles. Instead this is a big 1li mesh build with textures of snow flakes or rain drops. It can produce light to heavy rain/snow. I checked my sim script use and it is actually very low. The only problem I had is zooming in on things. Most of the time my camera would tend to get caught on the mesh. Overall, I do love the Botanical Seasonal Weather System. It helps add to the realism in our Second Life.

Today is Manicure Monday and I found a cute little store called Encore on the Marketplace. The set is called Designer 02 and is made of teals and browns. This nail applier is for Belleza, Eve, Maitreya, Omega enabled, and Slink mesh nails. I couldn’t find this particular set in the store, but it was listed as a newer release on Marketplace. I’m wearing it on my Slink hands in this picture.

Time to Have an Impromptu Hawaiian Luau

Luau

I was out at the local farmers market recently to pick up some fresh vegetables. 8f8 Green Grocers had a nice selection of fruits and vegetables to choose from. I think I will have an impromptu luau tonight. My new Truth Damaris hair, that I picked up at The Arcade, had me in the mood for something Hawaiian. One of the things that I really enjoy about this hair is the ability to mix the flowers up. You can wear the hair with or without the hibiscus flowers, and you attach a flower from a different hair pack with it. Same with the bows that comes with the Truth Gilda hair.

You don’t need to wear a grass skirt and coconuts to fit in at this luau. The cute dress that I am wearing is new from coldLogic and will go perfectly. It has a bit of sexiness with the midriff showing. I think it is so darling and goes nicely with this Truth hairstyle. I am wearing the Beam Dress in Blush. You can also get it in Buff, Butter, and Snow. It fit perfectly over my Maitreya Lara body.

Luau

While looking through some flickr images I stumbled upon a Japanese event that I had not heard of before. Mizu – A Rainy Story is more that just a shopping event. You wear a hud and become the main character in this story. The theme is rain, and most of the items for sale are related to that. I found several cute products in the market shops to pick from. This necklace was just what I was looking for to go with my new outfit. The smaller necklace went right through my neck when I put it on. Luckily it seems to be sculpted. I was able to easily resize it by using the editing menu. The larger necklace fit fine. Even though everything seems to be mesh now I don’t mind a sculpt here and there. I am still wearing the Ingenue Esmee sandals that I had blogged previously. I really think they are the cutest. You can get them in four colors at Collabor88.

My poses were picked up at Seraphim’s 4th birthday party. They are a gift from oOo Studio. And the fruit rings are a gift at the same event from Moon Amore. There are so many wonderful gifts from various creators. I think the gifts are still out, so hurry and get them before they are gone!

Now that I have the food, perfect hair, sexy dress, nice accessories, and the cutest shoes I am ready to call my friends over for the luau. Now to find someone to cook all of this food. See you soon!

Apple Fall Exclusive Bed

Apple Exclusive Bed

I was so happy to hear that Apple Fall was the guest on The Gacha Show. He is one of my favorite designers in Second Life. The interviewer and audience had great questions for Apple. The chat log will appear on The Gacha Show blog when it is prepared. The show was informative and quite entertaining. Apple announced that his store will be moving to it’s own sim. The funniest thing that Apple said was his answer to Luke Templar about where Apple Fall goes for sex. To which Apple replied, “apple doesn’t go for sex, sex comes to Apple. and that’s all you need to know for now.” The audience was rolling.

What I really want to talk about is the exclusive gift. Most always the guest brings a gift for the audience. Apple Fall made this really great animated antique daybed. There are ink stains on the quilt, and the book is signed by Apple. Being a no copy and exclusive gift makes this bed worth a billion to me.

Apple Fall has an in world group that has just surprisingly reached 4,000 members. Probably so low due to the prior lack of announcements. You can join now for free and get the newest group gift from the store. This great Lemon Whip Drizzle cake and bucket of lemonade drinks. You were expecting apple pie? That is a whole other gacha.

Apple Fall is currently located here, but as I mentioned previously, the store will be moving.

The Artist

Subway Artist

We may never see the eyes behind this easel. I imagine being the person who made the pictures posted on this easel. Every day taking it all in. Maybe play a song every once in a while. People pass by here all of the time. They’re either looking for the metro, which is closed and is a story in itself, or strolling by for a bite or some shopping. Whatever the case, he tries to get them to notice his art by playing the guitar. Hoping for a sale or a tip so that he can buy dinner. Or maybe he just enjoys art and this is simply his pastime. After writing this I found a picture on flickr that is exactly what I imagined this artist doing. Check out Sunny George’s picture featuring this set and the rest of his stunning artwork.

Subway Art

The attention to detail on Apple Fall products is one of the reasons I enjoy collecting them. Yes, those are individual strings on the guitar. Perfect reflections are seen on the bottles, wing nuts not forgotten on the easel, and splatters of paint on the wood. Some think the work is too realistic, and others are as fond of it as I am.

Fine Wine

Apple Fall has a new Al Fresco dining set at Shiny Shabby for March. Here I have the parasol, table, chair, and wine set. I think it goes well with the 8f8 Primavera in Toscana houses from The Arcade. Apple Fall has also made seven new poses for the chairs. These poses are pretty well done, and a welcomed addition.
