Genesis Kiana

Genesis Kiana

Genesis is celebrating 3 years in Second Life. On Monday, September 25th, Genesis gave out a new bento head to the in world group. The join fee is only L$250.  It was originally only for 24 hours. But, according to a group notice they will be closing the group soon and sending out an updated and upgraded version. So, I assume if you missed it that you will still have a chance. As long as you joined the group before they closed it. I am not 100% sure this is how it will be done, but the group notice sort of sounds like it. It looks like the group might be closed now.

I really love this head. These eyebrows are a bit bushy for my taste, but over all I am very pleased with Genesis Kiana. The package came with an omega version, and I will try other creators skins on it soon. You can get the Omega System Installer on Marketplace or in-world. I’ll be trying it with Glam Affair soon enough. You know I love that brand skin. I picked up the Maitreya body appliers in all tones for just $L200 at the Genesis store.

Kiana comes with an animations hud. 12 animations plus static eye, mouth, tongue movements. You can turn blinking and talking off. The other hud includes 12 eyeliners and eyeshadows. Also on the hud are blush, contour, and lipsticks. This hud also has a tab called genetics for eye color, eye lashes, ear color, teeth shape, and tongue effects/color. Beauty marks and hair base are also found on the genetics tab. The final tab is called settings. Here you find neck colors, braces, piercings, and skin shine.

This is a really nice bento head, and it was only for the group join fee. I am happy with the look I created and look forward to wearing it more.

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).
