I Wrote A Song For You

I Wrote A Song For You

If you’re recovering from Arcade fever, then don’t forget that We <3 RP opens in a couple of hours (3pm SLT) and you can pick up every item you want, without having to gamble for it! That includes this beautiful, shabby chic style Gypsy camp set from Kalopsia.

There are two different styles available, both come with a caravan which you can't actually go inside but instead is animated with 9 poses, so makes a great decor or pose item. Both also include a table, animated chair and an awning as well as other knick knacks which are different in each set. A complete set is currently marked at 50% off for 250L, which I think is a steal for the amount you get. Or you can buy a pack of both sets for only 400L – even better!

The guitar I'm using in this pic is the one currently available from Balaclava at The Arcade. I loved the busking set and was super happy that I got this on my second go as it was exactly what I wanted. I think these are great picture props and perfect for role play too. I'll definitely take a busking character for a spin now!

Yes I'm wearing the boyfriend socks from Just Design again, I can't get enough of them. But check out my new boots! (close up here on Just Design’s Flickr) These will be available tomorrow (5th March) at The Mens Dept, again by Just Design. They’re unrigged so you can easily resize as needed, also has a removable sock option which I took off so I can wear my beloved boyfriend socks and suspenders.

Since it’s Valentines Day tomorrow I thought I’d step outside my comfort zone a bit and do something different, which was easy with this new lingerie set that Baiastice just released. There were 4 new sets in total, this was music to my ears coz in my opinion, there is just not enough mesh lingerie out there right on the grid right now. I’d love to see more, so I’m really glad that Baiastice has decided to expand her range.

If you’re planning something for your special someone in SL tomorrow -winkwinknudgenudge- then you definitely should stop by and try these out!

Hair Fair Faves – Part 1

Hair Fair Faves - Part 1

As you all probably know, Hair Fair 2013 kicked off today with four full sims chockablock with fantastic designers and beautiful new hair releases.

I made several trips to each of the sims, it felt like I was heaven and today I decided to show you a few of my favourites with more to come over the next few days!

From left to right I’m wearing a new release from Loq, Exile and Clawtooth but honestly guys, there are so many many more amazing styles, you really have to go check them out. You can also have a look at the official Hair Fair Flickr group to see what else is available and don’t forget to add any pics you take there too!

With four sims it shouldn’t be too hard to get into one of them, but make sure you try to deprim a bit and take off huds etc to help yourself with the lag. Also the SLURLs I’m going to link for the hair are direct TPs to those specific stores at Hair Fair, so you can pop up straight there.

Happy shopping people, I’m gonna go play more with my pretty new dos!

Midsummer Style

Midsummer Style

Collabor88 opened yesterday with a new round and I tell you, I hardly knew where to start. There are so many gorgeous items out this month, lots of great SLink add on shoes and several really pretty dresses.

In the end I decided to show you the latest little number from Baiastice who are in this round as a guest. I don’t know about you but dresses for me are always the hardest to style. Seperate tops and bottoms are easier because you can mix and match, with dresses you really have to accessorize well to wear them differently. The cropped vest I’ve added from Toki Doki is one of my favourite items to do that with, I’ve worn it in blog posts a few times but it fits perfectly over a lot of other mesh items and can help to make an outfit just that little bit different.

Also new at C88 is the Lulu skin from Glam Affair that I’m wearing. Lulu is definitely my new favourite after I picked up several versions at The Arcade and so I was really pleased to see more released in my every day America tone to add to my collection!

My big statement earrings are new from Maxi at C88, they come in 3 different colours and are easy to resize if you’re not that into big earrings, personally, I love ‘em. The last bit of new in this post is the pose from Kirin who are also appearing at Collab as guests!

I’ve used some old hair that was released over the last few weeks in my latest posts, I think a lot of designers are holding out on us since Hair Fair starts soon and I simply can’t wait! It opens on the 13th July and will run for 2 weeks. There is a demo group that you can join in world where the hair demos will be sent out on the 12th, that way you can try hair on at home and be in and out of the fair in no time on the 13th! To join the group just copy and paste this link into local chat secondlife:///app/group/2e30d166-f3e5-e2de-ff72-b3da2d06ded2/about and click! You can find other information regarding Hair Fair on their official website here.

I’m signing out for a couple of days now but you can bet I’m back in time for that!

Born To Be

Born To Be

We can all be blessed with a smooth, svelte figure in SL if we desire and these new Tini Kini’s from Drift are just perfect for showing them off!

There are so many different prints available that you’re bound to find one you like, including pastels and brights, retro knit, international flags and a wildlife range. Clearly the wildlife collection wins for me!

I didn’t go overboard with my accessories for this coz I’m wearing a bikini and well…less is more right? I was actually looking for a gold belly chain on the marketplace when I came across this one from a little shop called MishMash and for 89Ls I couldn’t pass it up!

Before you think it, yea I know this hair from Exile is a couple of months old now, but it was just way too good of a match not to use it for this pic!

Would Like To Meet

Would Like To Meet

Sometimes I want to do a blog post coz I’m in the mood to edit a picture, but I’m feeling too lazy to set anything up. I felt like that today and since I just spruced up my living room with some new Loft pieces I figured I’d take a snap of that, then spend some time editing. However, the picture really didn’t need that much and aside from brightening and cropping it, this is pretty much a raw shot. Hope you like!

After Hours

There has been a huge amount of amazing releases the last few days, and more still to come over this weekend. It’s fair to say that my L balance has taken a dramatic hit and will continue to do so for the next week, while my inventory is piling up with things to blog!

I put together a couple of my faves from this round of FaMESHed that started today, as well as this skirt that was recently released from Emery. I have to tell you ladies, this skirt makes your ass look amazing! You have to demo it to believe it! I really like this hair style from Exile and it’s non rigged mesh which is good because I had to resize it and reposition it a fair bit. I play with my shape a lot and tweak it here and there, so that could be why, but it’s rare for me to have problems with mesh hair not fitting well, so make sure you demo this too!

More from Vintage Fair

Back to some Vintage Fair releases today, I hope everyone’s been enjoying their shopping there the last few days!

This cute mesh top and skirt are both available from Tulip. The skirt comes in a few different colours, and the top is available in a couple of different prints. Obviously they go together really well so not much effort on the styling on my part. If you loved the dress that Tulip released a couple of weeks ago for FLF, well it’s also now available at the fair in lots of different colours!

The necklace I’m wearing is part of a new set from Maxi Gossamer at the fair. It comes with matching earrings and the necklaces are all separate, so you can wear them individually or together like I did. It also comes with a silver version too, so you can mix it up with a lot of outfits or other pieces of your fave jewellery! I love Maxi Gossamer for accessories, so much mesh goodness for such great prices and this set is just another great release from them.

Now let me talk a bit about these shoes. They’re available from SLink at the fair and as we know SLink have some of the finest mesh feet on the grid. The rigged womens bare natural feet are probably the most worn item in my inventory, and now that they have add on shoes for really reasonable prices, I hardly wear anything else these days. But now SLink have released this rigged mesh version of their tip toe feet which are included in with the shoes exclusively at Vintage Fair.

I think it’s pretty safe to assume that when the fair ends, the feet will be available seperately and the shoes too, so that you can just purchase them as add ons. Disclaimer – I don’t know this for sure, but I think it’s going to go that way. Right now the shoes and feet are available in a set for 700Ls. SLink usually charge 600Ls for their feet and the prices of the add on shoes for the flat feet are currently at 300Ls. So again, I’d assume that the heel shoes are going to be anywhere from 300Ls up. That means that by buying this set together, you should be saving at least 200Ls! Not only that but the feet can be worn by themselves and the shoes are just far too cute to pass up!

That’s all the items I’m wearing from the fair, the bag is by Glow Studio and is currently available at this round of TDR Blue for cheap!

Don’t forget that August’s C88 opens tomorrow, I get so excited the day before but I must now go do the necessary inventory cleaning to prepare for that!

LOTD & Exile at Hair Fair

This is my LOTD and another new release from Hair Fair! This one is from Exile and again it’s mesh but with these decorative feathers as an optional attachment to wear with it. As usual I’m doing my <3 thing for the natural looks. Here’s a direct SLURL to Exile at the fair which is located on the Sand sim.

Also new in this picture is the sweater from Toki Doki. It’s so comfortable looking with it’s chunky knit texture and is the perfect type of sweater that I’d just want to curl up in of an evening.

Hope you enjoy my little festival-goer look and are counting the hours till Hair Fair officially opens! Don’t forget to join the demo update group in world as well as the Flickr group!

One Voice Love

I’ve never owned a Curio skin. But before the Curio brand, Gala sold skins just as “Gala”. I checked my inventory today and I have 13 of those Gala skins from back in early ’07, including TWO demos! That really made me laugh, don’t ask me why I have skins and DEMOS from ’07, I honestly couldn’t tell you. I’m clearly much more like this woman than I realised. Especially as I didn’t even delete them after I found them!

Despite the fact that I’ve never owned a Curio skin, I’m still actively supporting this event and while it’s great that so many designers have contributed items with the profits going toward Gala’s legal fees, that is just a bonus. The important part of this whole thing is that so many people have stood up, and worked together and created something that is not only going to help Gala but the community as a whole.

I was talking about the fundraiser to a friend this morning, she said “it’s reminded me why I play Second Life” and she’s right.

I should let you know as well that the One Voice event has been extended to run until the 22nd of July. So don’t worry if you haven’t managed to get access yet, thanks to the generosity of Eku Zhong (who donated the use of the sim as the venue) you now have extra time to get over there and show some love for Curio!
