Paris – The City of Love & Shopping

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.

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.

Which MeOwl are You?

I was shopping at The Seasons Story event and came across the Meowl gacha from Schadenfreude. This adorable little guy is Pepe, and I just happen to have the perfect matching dress to go with him. I love his warm colors and big blue eyes. I will go back and play some more until I get Muerto and Pumpkin. I’m feeling all of these. The Meowls come with a holding animation built in or you can rez them for decor.

The Seasons Story is celebrating their second anniversary. You’ll find a lot of gifts from the designers at this event. My cute gold owl earrings are a gift from Ninety. It came with a color change hud. Wasabi Pills has the Poppy hair style at this event. They have the browns color pack on sale at 50% off for the duration of the event. I love the updo with a few strands framing the face. With such a large variety of designers at this event I am sure you will find something that you cannot resist.

The Embrace dress in Linear is from Neve. These gorgeous dresses come with a color change hud. There are 4 color packs with 4 textures in each pack. You can also change the color of the scarf separate from the dress or remove the scarf completely. This particular color scheme is from the Linear pack and matches my Meowl. Yay! The Embrace dress from Neve is new for MIX, and you can pick it up in their main store location.

The Kat knit crochet stockings are new from AlaskaMetro. You can wear these on the classic avatar, or through a hud for Slink, TMP, or using the Omega System. I am wearing them on my Maitreya Lara body. They are ridiculously priced too low (25L) at the AnyBODY event. Definitely get a pair or 4.

Lydia D Booties

The mesh fit shoes are from my most favorite person and brand. Betty Doyle of Ingenue has these Lydia D. Booties at Collabor88. They are named after Lydia Deetz from Beetlejuice and comes in 13 colors. For some people 13 is a lucky number. I love the decor on the sides of the shoes.

The Location is on Lo Lo and available for anyone to take pictures.

Why We Love Fall (And You Should, Too!)

Fall Shopping Day

Fall isn’t just about pumpkin lattes and Halloween. Some stores do have Christmas stuff out already. All joking aside, this turning of the season also means that it is time to shop for new clothes! Shopping is a favorite pastime for most people that I know. And the beginning of the month means new product and sales are awaiting us!

Neve is participating in the MIX event with two new mesh dresses. The one I have on today is Acute and comes in four different textures (plaid/floral/lively/neutral). Each texture pack that you buy comes with a four color hud. These colors are great for the fall season. The color of the belt can also be changed, or you can remove it from the dress. Neve mesh clothes are made to fit Maitreya Lara, Belleza Isis, Slink Physique, and the classic avatar.

My gorgeous flowing locks are by Mina. She is one of the great sought after hair dressers in Second Life. This hairstyle is called Laila and is 50% off for the MIX event this month. Working our way down to the dazzling necklace I am wearing is ANE Angel Heart Necklace in diamond/silver. The bags are both from ROWNE and Zenith gachas. I love purses and these are really outstanding. I want to take the time to say that ROWNE has outstanding customer service. I rezzed this bag for decor and it poofed. Gone. So I contacted their customer service agent, Justice Topaz, and she sent me a new replacement! Apparently ROWNE bags cannot be rezzed, so do not try it.

And finally down to the feet we have Ingenue Astrid and Ninette Heels. The Ninette Heels were just on sale for FLF. Hope you were able to grab them. Betty Doyle is an outstanding footwear designer. I wish she would try and make clothes again. My powder blue classic stiletto heels are Sutra II from AlaskaMetro and matches perfectly with the outfit.
