My very first v-log!

OK, this is something new for me – I’ve never done this before (and I am sure you’ll be able to tell!). ¬†I hope it’s not too bad – I’ve just become a blogger for the EnMESHed monthly subscription box and I really did try to do my best ūüôā ¬†Let me know what you think!

 

 

 

Oh, and by the way…I had a brain freeze moment when I was trying to figure out the linden-to-dollar exchange…so yes, I do know $900L is a little bit more than $1.00 US. ¬†Someone like me, who hates numbers, should never go into filming without the stats right at hand. :S

Romping on the beach and Working That Middle

I love summer and beaches…something about the ocean’s currents and the warmth of the sun-baked sand makes me just want to build sandcastles and play in the surf! ¬†So when I got the Sommer romper from Blossom and the Fergie shoes from S0H0E, I immediately thought, beach time! ¬†I also decided to use the Kai set of Demen poses from Image Essentials.

The poses, which also come in mirror poses, were perfect for showing off the romper, which comes in about a dozen different color combinations via hud, and the shoes, which comes in dozens of potential color combinations, as the S0H0E shoe hud can change the heel, insole, decor and body of the shoe to any color on the hud you’d like to use. ¬†Summer beachwear never looked so good!

And of course, when summer comes, you might notice when you take off the bulky sweaters that your body has … well, changed a bit! ¬†And just in time to rescue you and inspire you to lose those excess pounds – or just make you look darn good! – is this collaboration by Blossom and S0H0E, Work That Middle. ¬†The shoes, from S0H0E, have hud tabs to change the body, laces, sole and metals; the outfit, from Blossom, has gloves, top, and shorts, all customizable ¬†with the hud provided. ¬†Gloves change color and design embroidered on them, shorts change color, and top changes color and a fishnet option for the fatpack. ¬†I used the Sultry V2 poses from Image Essentials; with their flirty, sassy look, they¬†seemed perfect for this outfit! ¬†After all, how can you not feel powerful and confident with this outfit on?

Hopping down the bunny trail…

And yes.  I have been waiting for Easter to type that, lol.

What’s even better is that you can go around to all your events and stuff wearing a bunny outfit and no one even blinks! ¬†And oh what an outfit! ¬†Le Fashion Whore has an adorable outfit with color-change huds for outfit, ears and tail, Daddy’s Lil Bunneh, and a terribly cute bunny with a color-change HUD named Baby Bunneh. ¬†Is this adorable? ¬†And I used Image Essentials’ Sultry V1 poses and mirror poses to add to the cuteness factor…with a bit of sexiness added in, of course!

And then I danced a bit with Baby Bunneh…a great time was had by all! ¬†ūüôā ¬†These photos were taken at my gig at the Blues Barn, a really fantastic place to hang out and enjoy the blues! ¬†It’s moving to a new location, so I can’t give you the SLURL, but Monday, you should be able to find it in search!

Have a happy Easter!!!!

I gotcha some shoes, I gotcha some poses…

I got ya some really awesome headbands too!

Seriously, how can you turn down such gorgeous bargains as these??

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Like Image Essentials’ Sweet as Honey series of poses with mirror poses, which were paired with Petit Chat Scent of Spring headband on my boat dock and sand nearby. ¬†The poses look like fun, with a pin-up girl-like quality about them. ¬†The Scent of Spring headband adds to the playful aspect, with branches loaded with flowers that can be changed by hud for literally hundreds of looks!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The next set of poses from IE, Bento Ragnar, was paired with the Petit Chat Cameo headband. ¬†I was struck with a whimsical idea and decided to adopt a look like a Viking warrior woman…who also decides to dress up her outfit for spring! ¬†And I will tell you, with these fierce poses and mirror poses, I for one wouldn’t want to tell this warrior that the headband is too fanciful! ¬†The headband’s flowers have several huds to change the colors of the outer and inner petals for thousands of possible looks!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

And last but of course not least…Le Fashion Whore released Louise heels and then also released a notice for their merger with S0H0E Shoes. ¬†S0H0E Shoes’ Kate heels is the first result of this synergy! ¬†Both shoes have huds to change color for each part of the shoes, so your shoes can be unified with one color, or made more dramatic with each separate part of the shoes a different color!

Now Petit Chat’s headbands are going to be out at two different events; the Cameo headband will be at Fashion Dazzle (http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Gallii/206/107/34) which runs until the 26th; the Scent of Spring headband will be at The Chapter Four event (SLURL:¬†http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Dreamlove/96/148/1236 ,¬†flikr : https://www.flickr.com/groups/2166800@N25/ , ¬†Website : https://tcfevent.wordpress.com/, ¬†Facebook : https://www.facebook.com/thechapterfoursl/) and runs until the 20th.

Here we go a-bloggin’…

After all, I have to do what I promised the Ostara’s Altar items I’d do: ¬†blog about them!

Zibska’s Idunnr is sexy, colorful, beautiful, and certainly reveals a lot about one’s self! ¬†It even changes color via hud! ¬†I do seem to be losing petals fast, don’t I…!

Vengeful Threads has a gorgeous necklace that can change colors via hud; the pendant, in the shape of an egg, has also many options for the filigree around the base of the pendant as well ūüôā

SF Ziva Dress is a gorgeous palette of colors and in sizes for Slink, Slink Hourglass, Maitreya and Classic avis!  Changing color is as simple as clicking the hud!

Poseidon has provided 6 poses, each with a corresponding book of shadows.  Want to look as if you are channeling the arcane arts?  This set is for you!

*pm* has the most adorable, most OMG-must-have-able decor items to celebrate spring!  Whether you observe Ostara or just think spring is a nifty idea, these should definitely be gracing your home!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Oubilette has a pair of chucks that will thrill all you pastel goths out there, and a dress named after the original “goth girl,” Hades’ Persephone! ¬†It comes in 5 color combinations and will look soooooo good on you, goth or not!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

QE has provided the most gorgeous and SEXY outfit for this event, named after the goddess of the hunt Diana! ¬†The set comes in Sable and Fawn; I decided to pair these up with Psycho-Byte’s offering, the Witchy Rabbits (I’m showing them in Gray, Browny, Gold and Snow, but they come in a lot more looks!)…after all, I think even Diana would hesitate to kill these cuties!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Nightmare has a Spring Witch Halo that can change color¬†and add bees or butterflies via hud! ¬†There’s also a butterfly addon for your hair…it really does feel like spring with all the flowers, and bees, and butterflies!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

!Lyrical B!zarre Templates added three more items to this event, two jewelry sets (necklaces/earrings) named Salem and Ostara, and a GORGEOUS latticework gazebo with fur floor! ¬†I found it perfect to show off Lore’s Personal Altar and the Wheel of the Year tables, in plain and mossy, and the Wheel of the Year pillow!

Kiara Mini Dress, AP MIss Haiti 3_001

Last, but certainly not least, is Get Frocked’s Kiara mini dress in Bats Blue…and if you are wondering, yes, it is netting. ¬†No, I was not going to face the camera to show this off. ¬†Yes, I am a prude occasionally. ¬†But just occasionally – I figure it helps me have a more rounded personality. ūüėõ

Ostara’s Altar runs until the 16th of April…but you still don’t have a lot of time! ¬†Hurry down and shop!

Ostara's Altar Event AD 2017 - Final

A-blogging we will go…!

I did say in my post-before-last that I had taken a bunch of my blogging stuff and locked them in the closet for later…well, the pounding and the cries of, “Let us out! ¬†Blog us!!” got to be just too much…so I’m blogging the last of my items from InspirationSL and, tomorrow, the last of my items from ¬†Ostara’s Altar!

I have always loved the bohemian, gypsy lifestyle – in RL I was called “the Boho girl” at my job – so for me, InspirationSL¬†has been just amazing! ¬†So colorful, fringe-y, appliqued and so fun to wear! ¬†Just look at the following styles and see:

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

First is Spyralle, who has provided the Esmeralda colorful skirts in 3 colors and two different patterns per skirt! ¬†The patterns are absolutely amazing – if you feel a kaleidoscopic effect from looking at them…well, I think they look like that too! ¬†And Spyralle added earrings and cuff bracelet to enhance this lovely outfit.

Next up, Mirror Mirror has given us an InspirationSL exclusive, the Fortune Teller dress in yummy shades of blue, green, orange, pink and yellow!  Gorgeous and oh-so-light, with a strapless gathered bodice and gathered waistline culminating in a handkerchief hem.  Lovely!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The Marquesse Esmeralda dress is a sexy little number that will make you feel oh-so-desirable! ¬†Each color dress has a patterned bodice with straps tying in the back and a handkerchief hem that dips and falls in interesting ways! ūüôā

!Lyrical B!zzare Templates has contributed three amazing and exquisite items to the event:  Esme belt, a beautiful three-strand chain belt in gold; Asema Necklace in bronze; and Asema Set, two armlets, two bracelets and a belt in bronze and leather.  A lucky gypsy girl will be soooo happy to get these!

If you are like me and adore having your nails polished in gorgeous colors, .::LUNA::. has a fantastic item for you! ¬†This is the Paisley collection, in the yummiest metallic-shimmer colors…how can you resist?

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

*Eskarina* has as its entry the *ESKA* Boho Dress Рand so versatile!  It comes in Green Cream, Orange, Orange Turquoise, Turquoise, Pink, and Pink Lilac.  It is only for Maitreya, though.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Last, but certainly not least, ***Lucky Night***has two dresses for sale at InspirationSL, Esmi Outfit and Esmeralda Outfit.  Both dresses have lovely white off-shoulder peasant blouses, hoop earrings and a tamborine, but Esmi has a green corset and indigo/purple skirt in panels, while the Esmeralda has a shorter, lighter green corset and shawl and skirt in magenta and rose layers.

Hurry to the InspirationSL event – it’s ending soon! ¬†2 more days!!!

I’m Feeling So Zen :)

Of course, that’s because I have found nirvana in SL! ¬†I have found THE best furniture and home furnishings store; it has gorgeously textured and designed items at ridiculously low prices!¬† I didn’t spend more than $200L for any of the individual sets I bought…and boy, did I buy a lot!

The store is Zen Creations, and I can’t stop gushing over their merchandise! ¬†I have a ridiculously crowded inventory, but I will ALWAYS make space for this store’s items! ¬†Seriously, if you are like me and not able to spend money like water, but you LOVE to shop…and by love, I mean retail therapy is your daily mantra…Zen Creations is for you!

Just look at this gorgeousness!!

And yes, none of those sets were above $200L. ¬†If you don’t believe me…
