Weekenders

Weekenders

Ok yea, I know it’s only Tuesday but a girl can dream can’t she? After I got so dressed up in not a lot yesterday I wanted to do a more casual look today, which was perfect because Drift just released the weekend tee and capris! I love oversized t shirts and this one with the slipped shoulder reminds me why we’re so much better off with mesh. I remember trying to wear a shirt like that before mesh, system top and prim parts…it just wasn’t happening!

I added the new Minimalist Glasses from Boom that you can find at C88. They’re unisex and come in several different colours. I don’t usually wear glasses but I love these ones and thought they worked with this outfit.

Finally, the little bag on the table is a freebie that you can get on the lucky board at Le Poppycock, I’ve been meaning to use it in a post for a while but hadn’t gotten round to it till today. Anyway it’s cute and modifiable so you can make it bigger or smaller as you like it. Love a freebie!

Letting It Go

Letting It Go

Hiiii people, just a quickie post today before I vanish for the weekend, but I wanted to show you a couple of new things.

First this top from Tulip which you can grab today for Fifty Linden Friday, it’s so soft and floaty and perfect for the light spring season. I’m also wearing another new release from Drift which are these capris. I really like that Drift makes regular releases rather than waiting a month or 2 before releasing a small collection. Don’t get me wrong I like that too but yanno, I’m impatient and I like to have stuff right this minute. Also before you think I PS’d the heck out of the pants, I didn’t. They are already heavily shaded, which is great for taking pics because it saves a lot of edit time. Just like Kalli’s recent releases they come with a colour change HUD, so lots of options for a bargain price.

I got this belt a few days ago at Le Poppycock’s 50L spring sale, they have a few belts there that come with 4 different coloured straps for each buckle. Make sure you check out their sale as they have lots of cute little bits and pieces which are great for adding to outfits.

I gotta say too, this hat with the hair is obviously a release from Maitreya last year but I love it so much, I really hope we start to see more similar items from other hair creators as the warmer seasons kick in, there just aren’t enough of these on the grid imo!

That’s me anyway, have a nice weekend :)

Life’s A Beach (and the procrastination meme)

Life's A Beach

There are so many events going on right now, it feels to me almost like there are new ones starting every week. I can’t blog on weekends so when I finally get here early in the week, everything that I bought on a Friday at an event has already been seen 100 billion times. Sometimes I’ll still blog them if I’m inspired to create a different look with them, but sometimes inspiration seems light years away.

I felt like that this week so instead I thought I’d put together a look with dress that I picked up in Leverocci’s sale last week. I’d umm’d and ahh’d over it for a while so when Jin Elfan announced her sale for Leverocci and Belgravia I dashed over. You can find details in that link but basically some stuff will be retired and right now there’s up to 75% off (marketplace excluded). So if like me you’d been admiring something there but hadn’t picked it up yet, now’s your chance!

I added the new over shoulder cardigan from Tram which is adorable, she actually did a version of this for Fifty Linden Friday which I thought I had bought but when I looked in my messy inventory, alas no, I’d only got the demo. Anyway I didn’t mind going back to grab one, there are 3 types available and each comes with a colour change HUD so you can mix and match them with different outfits. I think it’s going to be a great spring/summer accessory so bear with me if it makes more than just this appearance!

I got my little dog in the bag here a while ago, but hadn’t blogged it yet. Best thing about this dog is that it’s FREE! Who doesn’t love free stuff?? It’s animated and comes with a colour change HUD for the bag. I love it and think I’m carry him around for a while. Anyway you can find it here on the marketplace from Tutys.

Since I took part in Berry’s meme last week, I decided to give her new Procrastination meme a go too, so here it is!

What is the rez date for your current SL Avatar that you use most often?

Coral Lacey – 15th October 2006

Where was the first place you made friends as a newb and got to know people in Second Life?
A place called Club Heck coz that was the first place I got a job at. I think it wasn’t open very long and I was only there around 3 weeks but I made my first proper friend there.

Where do you spend most of your SL time now?
In my skybox.

Who is your closest friend in Second Life? (only pick one)
I have a few long time friends that know a lot about me but I don’t talk to them regularly so I’d have to say Harper (Shawneese Offcourse) ofc, she knows all my dirty secrets! ♥

What is the most favorite thing in your inventory? (only pick one)
Why this so hard! I’m trying to be deep and think of something meaningful that I own, but I don’t think I have anything! So at the moment either my Gos Sophia Peeptoes in black, coz I wear them all the time, or my SLink mesh feet, always a winner!

The last thing you purchased in Second Life?
The cardigan from Tram that I’m wearing in this pic.

What color clothing does your avatar wear most often?
Umm lately lots of black but I think that’s a phase, usually it’s shades of beige/creams/tans and other neutrals, coz I’m really boring like that. Sometimes I think I need more colour in my inventory so I’ll buy the next release in something like hot pink and then regret it the moment I put it on because I know I’m probably never gonna wear it.

Do you prefer to walk, run or fly?
I walk mostly because I forget a lot that I can fly, but yanno, flying’s pretty cool.

What is the craziest thing you’ve ever done in SL?
Getting SL married and adopting a kid, it’s not silly crazy I know but it’s something I never thought I’d do and at the time I did wonder if I was going cray, but it was definitely good fun while it lasted.

Who would you like to play YOU, in the movie of your SLife?
This is really tough so I’m gonna have to say the love child of Zooey Deschanel and Sarah Jessica Parker!

New from LaRoo!

New from LaRoo!

Last week I blogged about the new mesh footwear store LaRoo that would be opening soon. They were due to open on the 7th but some setbacks saw that date delayed, but now, they’re finally open! You can find LaRoo on the Fresco sim, located opposite FaMESHed. I went over and checked it out and it’s a lovely mesh build, great for taking pictures.

LaRoo have 2 new items out for their opening and my favourites are these Clyde boots. They come in lots of different colours and the studs give them that extra something. They’re non rigged mesh so you can resize as needed. The only thing I’d have liked is if they came with both gold and silver studs, since I pretty much always pick gold over silver, but I can’t have it all so I just wore them in gold instead!

I’m also wearing this new mesh top from The Secret Store at C88. It’s so pretty and well made and the gold accents easily make it a new favourite for me. At only 88Ls I’m definitely gonna be going back for 2nds, and 3rds and ok, maybe I’ll just get all the colours!

Broken

I was hoping to get a lot of blogging done this week, as it’ll be my last chance to get a lot out there before the holidays, but my computer decided on Sunday night that it wanted to go and get itself corrupted and then not work, so I lost basically everything and had to start again, which was very annoying and also means I won’t get as much done as I wanted this week, so sorry about that :(

Anyyyyway, I got some new stuff to show ya that was released over the last few days! First of all this hair from Truth. A yummy, messy up do that’s just perfect for pictures coz you get to add some wispy bits (creative license, a lot of it was already there but I did add a few just for the hell of it) and it’s also a great fit for the Auxillary hair bow that you can get from The Arcade!

C88 opened their new round on the weekend and I’m so in love with this lace top from Nylon Outfitters. The texturing is really well done and it’s nice to have something new to layer under mesh. It does come with a bra too if you don’t feel like being risque! Also from C88 is the necklace I’m wearing by Maxi Gossamer. The detail and mesh is the usual high standard you’d expect from MG and it comes in both long and short versions as well as in both gold and silver. I love that MG nearly always gives these options coz I have a penchant for long necklaces and it makes me sad face if a necklace I love only comes short.

TDR also kicked off their new TDR Fusion this weekend and there is SO much good stuff available! This belt is from LaGyo and comes in a couple of colours, it’s non rigged mesh so easy to adjust. SLink also put out a fab item – their new Vanity mesh boots. I was wearing them in this pic (which is the reason I’m not wearing mesh jeans, coz I wanted the tucked in look) but I’ll be honest, the picture just looked better cropped so they got cut off. I wanted to mention them though because I’m sure they’ll make appearances here and at only 70L while they’re at TDR Fusion you simply must go and check them out before they’re at full price in the store!

The location I took this picture at was the MadPea Carneval. I’ve never been there before but a friend TP’d me and it was pretty cool so I knew I had to snap something there. I’m sure there’ll be more at some point as well so it’s definitely worth checking out if you wanna play on some rides or take some cool photos.

So that’s me for this hump day, I’m gonna be trying to get a couple more posts done this week but with holidays and all it’s starting to get a bit manic!

Wrapped Up

Just a quick lotd post with some items I found as I was searching through my never ending pit of an inventory and trying to make it into something that resembles order (it’s neater now but everything is just in one folder called -To Blog- instead of actually where they’re meant to be).

So I found this jacket that’s from Purple Moon, they released it a few months back and I have no idea why I didn’t get around to blogging it but it’s pretty damn fab and perfect for this season, so here it is now! The skirt I picked up 2 weeks ago maybe? It’s by Baiastice and I got it at TDR, and although I haven’t gone to check most places do put their event items in their main stores after so you can likely get this there.

I’ve got a couple of new gacha pieces on as well, the hair from BCC and the stole from Pesca. I love both of these and definitely need more hair with hats please anyone who reads this!

Oh and Ugg boots yaaaaaaay! I was looking for some of these a couple of weeks ago when I did this post, then today I was surfing some blogs and found these ones from Redgrave over on Sugar Planner’s blog so I had to buy them, stat!

Sorry this is a bit of a quick post but it’s Friiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiidaaaaaaaaaay! I’m excited, can you tell?

P.s. WordPress changed something for when you upload pictures and now my sizing is broken or something, so from now on I’ll have to make them way smaller to upload them on here so that they don’t look broken on some of the feeds. If you wanna see them in better quality just click the picture and it’ll take you straight to Flickr. Simple :)

Silent Questions

I really suck at picking names for my posts and I can’t take the credit for this one, coz it was the name of the pose that I used. It’s from Le Poppycock and I can’t get enough of their poses recently. It’s a small store but well worth checking out, the poses have a lot of character in them.

Fridays are always manic for me and so this is just a quick LOTD with some items I picked up in the Black Friday sales as well as at other events or sales recently.

The bag and boots are both at L’accessoires Black Friday sale by Handverk and Lassitude & Ennui respectively. I’m in love this bag already and think I need to go back and get it in a couple more colours since it’s only 100Ls!

The hat and hair combo came from LaViere for this weeks FLF, make sure you grab it before the day is out!
