One big ol’ balancing act….

Evening Everyone! Life is one big balancing act for me right now.  I am slowly working my way through the backlog in real life and second life.

Tonight I want to share Just BECAUSE's cute Danika Top, which is a release for this month's UBER. This cutely patterned shirt is fashioned after a Bandanna Halter Top. It is open in the back with three spaghetti strings tying it shut. Very cute detailing. You can change the color of the strings and the beads hanging on the strings. I have the fat pack. It comes with fourteen color options for the top. You can buy the colors separately too. This design is compatible for Belleza Venus/Isis/Freya, Maitreya Lara, Slink Physique, and come in Standard Sizes. These items can ONLY be found at the UBER Event until the event closes, and then they will be added to the mainstore and on the Marketplace. You can read more on Just BECAUSE's designs on the Just Because blog.

Passing on through the gates of life….

Evening everyone, it has been a bit, hasn't it? I am not sure how to write this info as it kind of hurts to put it out in public, but I know a few of you care about the going-on in my life. My mother passed away last weekend, so I am a bit cheerless right now. I am sure I will bounce back once the shock of it passes and my routine falls into place once more. I want to thank you all for the personal message and support you have given me through this time. 

In order to try cheer myself up I pulled out my little fawn out. Gauze updated their Faun and Demon Hooves with omega and slink appliers along with giving the legs a face lift and adding new colors. They look great! There is a natural and fantasy color set available. Each set comes with six leg shades. Also from Gauze are the Sollux Troll Horns. The Troll horns come with twelve different styles of horns. They are modifiable and can be tinted to match your outfit.
The Fuzzy Bunny Tail  is by Half-Deer, which I re-sized down and tinted a brown to match my legs.… Read the restSecond Life Role-Play Fashion Review

Bringing a bit of Morocco home…

Good evening everyone, today I spent a bit of time on adding a few new corners to my SL home. I just felt like a bit of change. It was my luck that several of my favorite home designers had some awesome stuff that just fit perfectly with what I was wanting. I am quite pleased with how it turned out so I thought what the heck.. let's share it!

I wanted to create a sitting corner that would transplant you to a Moroccan setting. For this I found several pieces from [Circa] and StoraxTree, both long time favorites of mine.

[Circa] has created the Epiphany Sun Settee Set (L$2,400) as an exclusive for the 24 Event, available from Sept 11 - 19. This set comes with a settee seat including 44 female sits, 16 male, and 18 sync'd couple animation sets for a total of 96 positions.  The couple's sits range from sits, lays, reading, chatting, cuddles, to kisses.  The settee has 10 fabric color combinations & 5 wood tones.  The side table comes with 5 matching wood tones and branch vase attached.  Lastly, included are 4 hanging lanterns (2 LI).  Great for fall setups.… Read the rest

Haunting the Shores

Good evening everyone. It has been been a busy few days since my last post. I so looked forward to logging on to Second Life today to do a bit of photography.

I was happy to see that Just Because released a beautiful new dress! I love Just Because's designs and always look forward to seeing what Annie Melson imagines up. She is one of the few designers I have followed since my introduction into Second Life.

Purring Adventurers

Good evening everyone! Miss me? I sure have missed you! If you have not heard, I have been away because my mother has been diagnosed with stage four pancreatic cancer. For those who don't know the stages, this is terminal. They give her maybe six months to live, it is inoperable.The past few weeks have been a flurry of activity for me to transform her room for home hospice and make her as comfortable as I can in her last days. I appreciate all the kind words and support I have received in note cards, IMs and emails. They really have helped me stay on track and strong. Thank you.

I was quite excited to find myself with enough free time tonight to get on Second Life and dig through my inventory for a few goodies to share with you all. I felt a need for cuteness -- something to make me go awwww and take my mind off the dark clouds. I was quite pleased when I came across the Dinkies Game of Thrones Outfits from Designs by Isaura.

Now I know these are not my normal avatar types, but I couldn't resist going out and purchasing the Dinkies Ginger Mesh Kitty Avatar (L$400) by Tiny Inc.… Read the restSecond Life Role-Play Dinkie Fashion Review

Ombre Fades: We Love to Blog Challenge #3

Good evening everyone, tonight I wanted to share a couple photos I created for the We Love to Blog Challenge #3: Ombre/Fades. The challenge was to create a post using the theme Ombre Fades, having colors or tones that shade into each other —used especially of fabrics in which the color is graduated from light to dark.

I went with two items for my Ombre Fade challenge items, The Sirenas Dress and the Elvire Hair. I was given the wonderful  Sirenas Dress  by  Sweet Lies. This pretty fit mesh dress is a gacha item available in the new round of the Enchantment, August 14 to September 4. The theme is Little Mermaid. It is only 50 lindens each play. There are six common and 3 rare colors to collect. This beauty is a must have!

To go along with the beautiful dress, I added the Ligia Collar and Bracers (L$30/try). They are both original designs from the Ligia Gacha Collection, also by  Sweet Lies. The Ligia Gacha Collection consists of three color sets (green, blue, purple) to win.… Read the restSecond Life Fantasy Fashion Role-Play Review.

Communing of the Seafolk.

Evening everyone, today I have spent quite a bit of time on Flickr again. I get distracted by all the pretties. Today I got lost in the Mermaids in Second Life,  Second Life Merfolk, and Undersea Second Life. They are chalked full of such beautiful creations. So inspired was I, that I had to create my own photos to honor the theme. Of course it's not "beautiful" per say...but I think they are quite enchanting in themselves.

I decided there were just too many mermaids and decided I needed to try to create a balance. Just joking, I actually got an amazing Iston Fantasy Skin from Deluxe Body Factory as the Free Group Gift for this month for male members of the group. The group does cost to join, but the group gifts are well worth the fee. The Iston gift comes with one skin, Uni-Ear appliers, Eros/Kissers applier and Slink hands and feet appliers.
The back Ligia Dorsal Fin Mesh Blue (L$30/try) is a Sweet Lies original from the Ligia Gacha Collection.… Read the restSecond Life Fantasy Roleplay Fashion Review

Falling forward, floating in fashionable silence.

Good afternoon everyone, today I have a pretty whimsical post to share with you. Earlier today I was browsing flickr when I saw this beautiful picture. It was an action photo of a female avatar in a jump on a solid blue background with slight wavering lines of a lighter blue through it. Here is the photo that inspired my post. It is by Feather Light. I was so inspired by it I decided to give it a try myself. Of course, mine looks nothing like the one I was inspired by. I never can seem to mimic another's work very well, my stuff always tends to take on it's own style but I think what I have created is just as fabulous and well worthy of the inspiration Feather Light's photo gave. 

The beautiful dress is a combination of Entice's La Tortura Dress (L$150) and Zibska's Blanchefleur Set (L$300). 
The Blanchefleur Set includes coronet & shoulders in two versions (with and with out spikes), chest, chest orbit, lower orbit, upper left leg and lower right leg pieces color change via HUD with 10 color sets for main, accents and spikes.… Read the restSecond Life Role-play Fashion Review
