Summer Dreaming

While it snows outside here I wish it were summer.  I don't like being cold and have had enough snow for a while.  I like to think I'm somewhere tropic and warm.  Palm trees sway and the cabana boy brings me another drink while I work on my SL tan.  I found the most adorable swimsuit by Mon Cheri to accomplish this task.  I love the sequins on the top and the beading on the frayed shorts is irresistible.  Of course, you need some stylish heels and accessories to complete any look.  The heels are actually a group gift from N-core and come in a fat pack of colors.

Neon Mountains

Second Life is a place where you can choose to move mountains.  The only person limiting you in this world is yourself.  I recently realized that I no longer have the time to model which saddens me.  Modeling requires you to dedicate scheduled time to castings, rehearsals and shows.  Hopefully, with time I can gravitate back towards it.  Since I have realized this I choose to redesign my shape.  I am no longer sky high and actually have some meat on my thighs lol.

I can continue to blog which is more flexible and on my schedule.  I love the freedom that blogging gives me while still enjoying designers creations.  I found this great dress by sYs and the perfect hair just appeared as a group gift from TruthSuicidal Unborn just put out a bunch of new makeup that rocks.  The neon theme is fun in this drab winter scene of real life.

Desert Walk

It was nearing evening and I went on a desert walk.  This horse seemed to follow me.  He seemed tame and allowed me to pet him softly.  I picked up the horse as a gift from Fashiowl.  It has a few poses in it that are quite nice.  I have been eyeing this dress from Giz Seorn for a while.  I finally broke down and purchased it.  I love that the top comes in two different options which are mesh or velvet.  I choose the velvet one because it complements the skirt nicely.  Both items can be used separately for another styling which is a handy feature.

Fun at the tables

Pre-kids we would head to Reno, NV at least once a year and have some fun.  Sans kids that hasn't happened yet.  I thought this dress went great at the roulette tables.  It was an unexpected find when I went to the LL’s Shop your Heart Out Event and picked up all the gifts.  I mean who doesn’t like a free gift.  In those gifts was this really cute pink satin floral print mini dress from Erratic.  I also picked up the perfect hair from Exile at the event.  I’m ready for my date and the roulette table!  I love finding nice gifts from designers at events.  The best part is that designers also have some of their items discounted.  This event runs until February 26th, so make sure you go get your gifts today.  The picture was taken at Backdrop City.

Little Tease


Valentine’s Day was yesterday and I hope everyone had a great day both in RL and in SL.  I wanted to post about the little tease outfit I had picked out by Sexy Princess.  It’s a cute little pair of sexy shorts that expose the thin lace panties underneath. The designer finished the scandalous shorts with a mesh chain linked top.  She even gives you a sexy pair of chain linked shoes to finish off the outfit.  This is a definite must have if you want to spice up your SL sexy time.  You can also use these pieces in other outfits is the best part about it since they are separate pieces.

Smart Shopping

I confess that I have a new addiction.  You can call me the demo queen.  I love shopping and the thrill of getting new clothes.  I have found a new way to do this.  I go to an event and I pick up all the demos that interest me.  Then I go home and I try it all on giving it a good look over.  I then pick one or two things to purchase.  This new form of shopping has been good for me.  Before when I had a disposable income with my SL spending habits I would buy it all and just delete what I didn’t like.

With that being said I went to Uber and found a new skin from Atelier Pepe.  It’s hard to find a good darker skin.  A lot of times the color may look off in different wind lights.  I really like this new skin.  The neck area and the armpits care clean and don’t have darker shading than the skin color.  Then I went over to Truth’s booth at LL’s Shop your Heart Out Event and found new hair at 50% off.  They also have a gift out.  It was a steal on the hair.  My next stop was at On9 where I picked up Giz Seorn’s new Gretta dress.  I love the soft velvet off the dress and the warm winter color options.

The last stop for my whirlwind day was to go window shop at Gos Boutique.  I love the store and wanted to drop in to see what was new since my brief departure of SL.  It seems that they have updated some of their old shoe styles to be compatible with Slink and Lara bodies.  This excited me since I own a small fortune of their shoes.  This is the page on what shoes have been updated.  With the update of mesh bodies and heads comes the loss of use of older items on newer technology.  I am glad that some designers recognize this and do update their items accordingly because they don’t have to, so thank you for the bottom of my heart.

Wear Panties

Don’t forget to wear panties!  I realized with mesh dresses that unless you use the alpha to blur out your body everything shows.  I now wear panties when the dress allows me too.  Then I get more use out of all the lingerie I have in my inventory.  Maybe someone will open a panty store, lol.  I treated myself to Dead Dollz new dress the other day.  I love that store and have not gotten anything from them in a while.  I decided to splurge and picked it up from Famished.  It was the only thing I purchased and I was so proud of myself.  It is the perfect color and look for a romantic day date with the hubby.  I will be updating the hubby’s SL look soon so keep your eyes peeled.

Leather Pleasure


I picked up this leather-bound dress for a fun evening in.  I guess you can wear it out if you want that shock factor.  It comes in a bunch of colors and guarantees a good evening.   With Valentines around the corner this is a must have for any wardrobe.

On another note I have decided to make my credits more complete.  I was leaving off things like my body or my skin.  I thought that it would just be common knowledge for some reason, but it's not.  I have been looking at others pictures on Flickr and it's really irritating when I find something I like, head to their blog and then there is no credit for it.  I won't do that to you unless the designer is no long in business.  I also don't do most of my poses since they are all old and most pose makers have packed them up and put out new ones or have gone out of business.

Shopping.....it's what I do

I am being more mindful when I shop, but it is a very hard habit to break.  I use to run out to every event and buy whatever my heart desired.   Back then we were a dink (dual income no kids) family.  Now I am a stay at home mom with two littles and one income.  Now I bargain shop and pull out inventory favorites.  Old habits die hard and I was out shopping the other day for Fifty5 Thursdays.
I found a great dress and thought I would share with you.  The Alessia dress from Seven is one that I just had to try.  It has creative cutouts that offer a view of sexy skin.  I love when a formal dress shows a bit more skin.  I also saw the perfect hair at Vanity for this dress and had to go pick it up.  It is a sophisticated updo with a flower that gives it a pop of glam.  I then dug around in my inventory for shoes and jewelry that I had on hand.  The shoes are the exact same color of the dress and I would have never thought I would have something that matched so well.  With the upgrade of a mesh head all my standard makeup is no longer wearable.  I have been scouting for makeup that looks good on darker skin.  Arte delivers and has a nice strong color pallet.

Sassy

I love the feel and look of this outfit.  Mini skirts are married to thigh high boots in my opinion.  This little sassy number was given some sassy hair and I was on my way for a day of bargain shopping.  I love that in SL stores run discounts and specials. This picture was taken at Backdrop City.   It is my current obsession at the moment.  It’s just so easy to head over there and find something that is great for any photo.

Double Duty

Sometimes a girl needs an outfit that can do double duty.  This outfit is great to go out and about your day in.  Take in an afternoon lunch and do some shopping.  This high cut bodysuit would make some Blush.  Then you can go home and entice your loved one into following you to the bedroom.  Haha double duty.
