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!

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.

Just Peachy

Just Peachy

!bang has just turned 5 years old. I am really happy for Luna Jubilee. She once had her main store on my sim for several years before moving to her own. You can find these great poses at the current Shiny Shabby event. There are 5 poses plus their mirrors in the package. I think these fun poses would also be great for showing off jewelry in advertisements. Especially if you wore hair that was tucked behind the ear and also not covering up the chest area.

The Piece of Heart Necklace was made by ANE, and it comes in several color choices. You’ll find it at The Chapter Four in the buy one get two section. I couldn’t wait to get this dress from GizzA. This is in the under 100L area of the event. It is off the shoulder, casual, and so very pretty. There are four color choices to choose from. I was happy to pair the dress with my new Lacy Flats from Ingenue. I’m wearing them with the Maitreya Lara Mesh Body.

Pink Fuel recently updated and sent out a nice skin package to her group. Harley skin has always been one of my favorite Pink Fuel skins. I believe you can still get the updated skin if you join the in world group and visit the store for the gift.

Mutresse

So many great releases are at FaMESHed this month. I had a hard time deciding on which outfits to purchase. The Mustresse Krista Dress won me over because of the color changing hud. Everything about it is color change. The buttons, the top, the skirt, the belt, the back, everything. The only problem that I had with this dress and my Maitreya body is that a spot shows on the right clavicle area. It is not a “made for Maitreya” dress, but is a fitted mesh dress. It should work well with the standard SL avatar. I did try one size up and there was still a small spot, but the dress looked too big. Still, I bought it for the amazing color changes, and I do love it. This is the third anniversary of FaMESHed and most of the participants have put out gifts for you. There are a lot of gifts!

Jewelry Trip

Jewelry Trip(click to see full detail on flickr)

I am going to try and focus at least once or twice a month on jewelry. I would hope that I know a thing or two about jewelry in SecondLife since I made it for over 10 years. Finding hair and poses that show off your jewelry can be hard. It is great when you can find a hair that shows off the ears for your earrings, and doesn’t cover up too much of the chest where your necklace lies. I’ll try and help you find ones that work.

The three mesh necklaces in this post are from ANE. The first necklace is The Fool necklace found at the Tarot event. This piece is a little edgy with the spikes. In the middle, the Moth Wings Let it Go necklace can be worn with the words or just with all moth wings. Very pretty and easy to wear with most anything. My favorite of the three is the Botanical necklace. I really love delicate necklaces and wear them in real life. This is also more the style that I stuck to when I made jewelry.

For these shots I used !bang poses 475-479 pack, which can be found at the Shiny Shabby event. The poses I chose for the shots have the model standing upright with a slight turn to the left and the right.

I have never worn Moon hair before, but I loved this one so much that I had to have it. This hairstyle is swept to one side allowing one of the ears to showcase your earrings, and it has ample room for the necklace on the chest. I bought this at Uber in the variety pack because I needed all of the colors.

The off the shoulder dress is from Tee*fy. A dress in this style works really well with necklaces that lay on your upper chest. The dress texture was too busy for the long necklace. The piece gets lost in the chevron print. I chose my Tres Blah Angora sweater to wear with that. Both the dress and the top are at Collabor88 for a few more days. Very few. You should be able to find them later at the mainstore, and you can find the locations on my slurls page.

Because I also love to decorate! The rectangular framed pictures are from Trompe Loeil at FaMESHed. The rest of the decor is from Apple Fall. Caroline is getting ready to go on a trip. She has her map out for last minute planning, luggage packed, and is grabbing a quick bite of a muffin before hitting the subway.

Mossy Daybreak

Mossy Daybreak

Early in the morning, before you even get out of bed, the fairies are dancing around the meadows. They tell stories of playing chase with birds and reading books with turtles. These fairies sing to the flowers to wake them up for you and I to enjoy throughout the day. These are the fairies of the mossy meadows.

Things are Rosey

Rosey

Blithe is a new and well designed sim that is open to the public. This is a great sim for hanging out and taking pictures by yourself, with friends, or a loved one. You may have been to or heard of it’s neighboring sim that houses the The Pixel Bean Coffee House. Harlow Heslop has been hard at work making this a carefree and happy place for all to visit. I chose to show off my new look at Blithe.

Rosey

No21 event just opened up on February 21st. I was happy to find more spring like outfits. Here I am all ready for a spring cupcake party at Blithe in this fun Atomic Rosey Posey dress. In each set the sweater top comes in 3 colors and the skirt in 2. The colors are changed by a hud. Lamb created my hairstyle named Birdy. I love how cute and carefree the cut and style is. The gorgeous Yoshiko heels are from Ingenue and can be found at the Creepy Kawaii Fair. These are made for Maitreya, Slink, and Belleza bodies/feet.
