Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas

I hope you all had a very Merry Christmas!

I am still head over heels for the Truth Irenka hair. My makeup is Lilian from Glam Affair made for LeLutka. It has several eyeshadows and lipsticks to complete the look. My new face is Lelutka’s Simone bento head. Everyone on the grid is loving that they can create their own identities with bento heads.

Canimal is back to Second Life and has made this sexy outfit for N21. The top and skirt are separate pieces in case you want to wear them with something else. The heels are from Reign and have pom poms on the back part of the ankle. The pose is Glamrus for couples. I just really wanted to hold the sign so I am doing this pose solo.

Kitties Gone Wild with the Groceries

Kitties Gone Wild

What is it about cats and bags? They love to play with them. I am just trying to bring my groceries inside and they are all getting into the paper bags. Then we have the one pointing to the list making sure I bought the cat food, and another one ordering boxes on the internet. Notice the princess is missing though. Obviously not a mischievous cat (either that or the gacha machine wouldn’t give her to me).

Luxe Box – May

Luxe Box is a new subscription box in Second Life. From the 1st through the 14th of each month you will be able to subscribe by joining the group. On the 15th you receive the hud that delivers your items. For the first month the introductory join fee was L$1,000. This is said to go up for following months. And previous months items will be available for sale. We will have to wait and find out how this all plays out. The website doesn’t say much. Overall I am extremely happy with my Luxe Box.

O Tannenbaum, O Christmas Tree

Decorating the Tree

O Tannenbaum is an old German Christmas song. Here in the United States we know it as O Christmas Tree. Right here is SecondLife we know Tannenbaum as the holiday market filled with winter clothes and decor. Inside the tree lot are gacha machines filled with decorative ornaments.

The ornaments are so beautifully well done. Each gacha is only L$25 per play. !Ohmai has the cutest babies laying on snow inside of her ornaments. You can hold the little baby inside, but you will have to take the ornament apart. I love kitty cats, and so I had to play the Schadenfreude gacha. Each ornament is texture change with 6 options. Each play with Anc ltd. grants you 3 items in one pull. The ornament for the tree, one to pose inside of, and an animated twig chair. I also picked up a few adorable decorations from MishMish. These ornaments with kitties, puppies, and bunnies are cuteness overload. Silentsparrow has 12 perfect felt bird ornaments to trim your tree.

9 Quick Pumpkin Decorating Ideas

Pumpkins

Halloween is less than a week away. Time for ghosts, goblins, princesses, and pumpkins to come out. Trick or treaters will be landing on some of your doorsteps hoping for more treats than tricks. Most of you have done your decorating at this point. In case you haven’t started here are a few quick and easy tips.

#1 Wayward Halloween has some free gifts at the starting point. One is a pumpkin carving table. Find Zerkalo for their carved pumpkin gacha. Get one of nine candle lit pumpkins for 50L per pull.

#2 Gachatopia is having their annual Tag! Gacha event. Get your hud and visit Imeka. There you will find cute kitty cat pumpkins gacha for just 25L a pull. Get the coupon to obtain Imeka’s special rare item that is a pumpkin ghost. This event is fun and will take you to visit many stores across the grid.

#3 What Next is known for their great decor. These pumpkins were actually released last year, but were so well done that you still see them all over the grid. Pumpkins come packaged individually and as displayed. They are copy and modify, so you can make them as big or small as you want. I believe these are priced at 120L for the grouping.

#4 Holiday Appreciation Association presents Havenhollow III. Trick or treat door to door and explore the scary sim. This free pumpkin pair gift from MishMish awaits you along with some other prizes at the event start.

#5 Pilot has made these adorable pumpkins with a mouse peeking out of them. Five colors to choose from or a fatpack. Get it at Collabor88 for 188L per pumpkin.

#6 Again we have pumpkins from What Next. These were available for FLF just the other Friday. Hopefully you didn’t miss out on that deal. The group of five pumpkins are still available for 150L. They are modify and copy. Candles inside can be turned on or off by touch.

#7 Half-Deer put these pumpkins out last year for FLF. I went to her store and saw they are still available for 50L. They are modify, copy, and completely adorable.

#8 Zerkalo has a gorgeous fall pumpkin with a strand of pearls draped across it. This pumpkin has eluded me. I have played that machine quite a bit and have been unsuccessful. I have multiples of the other commons if you want to trade! This whole set is pretty and at The Seasons Story. 50L pull

#9 I just couldn’t resist sharing this pumpkin. Apothecary jars are something that I really love. 22769 has created a scene of ghosts and a haunted house inside this pumpkin. You can choose from eight different color combinations. This pumpkin is also at The Seasons Story. 175L

Twelve Years of My Second Life

Happy Rezday

October 23, 2003 I rezzed into Linden Lab’s Second Life. Honestly, I didn’t think that I would stay around for more than a couple of weeks. Here I am 12 years later, and I still log in almost every day. Second Life has changed quite a bit with vast improvements. My friends have changed. The ones I started with no longer log in. My avatar has most surely changed for the good.

For my rezday gift I purchased a mesh head. There are so many wonderfully done mesh heads that it took months to decide on one. I played around with LOGO, Catwa, and Lelutka. Even within a brand you have decisions to make. Which head, makeup, and expressions. Ultimately, I ended up deciding on Lelutka.

Rezday

Lara Hurley is not my usual go to brand for skins. I saw her ad in a Flickr Lelutka group and loved the look. After talking to my friend, Mouse Mimistrobell, I decided to go with the Lara Hurley brand. I mainly wore Glam Affair and Pink Fuel. I think this brand is a mix of both. The makeup is smooth and soft looking.

I picked up this fun Zenith dress at Kustom 9. The shirt comes with a color change hud. The poses are from Kirin, also at K9. The Rosie boots are from fri.day. They were an exclusive version for FLF a week ago.

Anyways, Happy Rezday to me. I’ll probably have them until SL is no more.

So I made the Most Wanted list

I was really just minding my own business. Logging in and shopping for nice things to wear or to decorate my place with. It is what I do now a days. Then it happened just like that. I was at The Arcade and ended up with Intrigue Co. putting me on the Most Wanted: Oldbie list.

The Arcade has always been one of my favorite events in Second Life. Some people like to complain about gacha events, but where else can you get a nice couch or gorgeous hair for L$50? I picked up this fun sexy beach hair from Olive, several Pink Fuel Skins (yay!!), a most fitting Most Wanted sign from Intrigue. These signs are so much fun, and my rez date is 2003 making me guilty as charged. I purchased a lot of great things that I will look fabulous in or add style to my house. The summer theme that most have seemed to go with is perfect for getting us Second Lifers into beach season!

Beach Hut

Now that I have been placed on the most wanted list I’ve got to hide out at my place on the beach. In the background you can see my hideaway friend, MishMish Pygmy Hippo, is catching some rays. The dust bunny umbrella is working hard at keeping the sun off of our delicate skin. This is our new Windsong Beach hut that is at Summerfest. It is the perfect one room hut for the beach shore. As you can see, I stopped by Collabor88 before hopping off to the beach. Another favorite event of mine where I found a cute romper from Tres Blah, and Ingenue had the most perfect shoes to match. Elikapeka Tiramisu has been a long time hair designer that I’ve admired. I was happy to see her items at C88 this month.

Beach Hideout

The marukin poses are also at C88. These poses are made for showing off jewelry and/or lips. Seven poses are included in the pack for just L$88. Most of them just have slight differences. They are perfect for using them in ads or blogs to show off jewelry better in pictures. The necklace was from a Fifty Linden Friday (FLF) event. That Friday has since passed but the necklace is still for sale in the mainstore.
