Open for Trouble

I found a new to me shopping opportunity while sifting through blogs last night to figure out where to shop. Seraphim opened “The Outlet – a Seraphim Infinity Event” about a week ago it looks like, and it’s just a 50% off room from designers you love and some you don’t know. I really loved this as it gave me an opportunity to pick up some deals, as well as try out a brand I don’t know.

I was glad to pick up cute hair from Wasabi Pills on a discount – I mean, SCORE but I also picked up a few things to try out new brands. I was excited about trying this brand Apple Blossom because their textures were new and fresh, and I felt really inspired by them. I was really disappointed though that these straps are completely wonky and stand a couple of inches ABOVE my shoulders. I was glad I just paid 75L for it – I will avoid this brand in the future. I don’t not recommend this one to pick up if you hop over there.

I pulled out some old bangles from Zaara that I used to adore and painted up my face with goodies from Alaska Metro. I feel like this is what our mothers meant by TOO MUCH MAKEUP don’t you? I don’t even care.

The hair clips are fun – but I don’t know if I ever figured out how to work them or just got lucky repeatedly clicking. Knowing me, it’s the latter.

Happy Monday girls. Let’s make it a great week!

Seaside Abode

I have a couple of quibbles with my house and they’re small but mainly it’s because the windows don’t look out at the sea. That in itself isn’t much of an issue, as I have a huge backyard and access to a boat dock rezz zone if I trespass on the lighthouse island nearby. All of that being said, I have to admit, I’m a sucker for being seaside regardless of the weather. Stormy Friday nights suit me fine. After all, I’ve got 165k items in my inventory, surely I couldn’t truly be said to WANT for anything now could I?

This chair about gave me a heart attack trying to acquire it. Locations that are full because people are shopping frequently cause me to not bother with them at all. I’ve lost the patience for it. But in this instance I have to admit I simply HAD to have it. I was creating a little cozy-casual nook for drinks, TV and relaxing and it just fit the part so perfectly. So I reloaded the TP to the spot over and over and over like a peasant until I got in.

Seriously, I felt like an SL pioneer.

Regardless – amazing chair ACQUIRED.

It’s a discounted item (not a gift, gifts are FREE) at ANTHEM event from Bazar. I think it was 60L or 50L or I don’t know what but WORTH every penny. It is awesome.

Eventually I got hungry and wanted to have some kung pao beef, but I got bored waiting on it to cook and cut ups some veggies. Midnight snacks have no rules.

I finally got my food wrapped up and headed back to my comfy chair only to find that I’d been usurped.

Snake Plisskin, what a jerk.

AlaskaMetro Lingerie from Shop & Hop

I am in love with this bodysuit. Not sure where I’ll wear it – or how, but the detailing on it is amazingly gorgeous.

It’s another one of her great sale items – on sale for a killer steal of a price.

Beautiful Lingerie – now at Shop & Hop from ALASKA METRO

I was originally compelled to run over to the Shop & Hop event because of the beautiful lingerie that Alaska Metro posted on Plurk. Lingerie in SL can be so run of the mill, so boring. There are only a few brands I’ll even bother looking at. But Alaska isn’t just a really creative, quality skinner, the clothing items she makes are always top notch.

Such as, this gorgeous piece.

She’s having an INSANE sale at her main store as well – at least I think it’s still going on. I urge you to RUN don’t walk to both Shop & Hop and her main store. I think I snagged this lingerie for less than 50L.

What are you waiting for?

You can run over to the Shop & Hop event by taking this taxi.

You might be tempted to just run to look for one thing, I suggest you get a cold drink and take a leisurely stroll around all four sims. Every booth (nearly) has a free gift of some sort and they’re not even all chokers (as you know the LAMEST of all free gifts IMO).

But seriously, there is MUCH to love.

Black Friday is for Peasants

If you thought this shopping addict was going to be up before dawn tramping stilettos in a chaotic rush for a good deal, well you are confused. No my lovelies I’ve slept in and I’m not even sorry. I’ll be having a very relaxing day at home thank you.

I hope your Thanksgiving was bountiful and joyous.

You Could Do

WIthout a reason I stood around Alaska Metro’s store a couple of weeks ago collecting whatever G thing came my way from her Lucky Chairs. I picked up a ton of goodies, things themed for Halloween and things not, and I didn’t give a hoot either way.

Good quality and cute is always a win. Plus, Bite Me is not singularly a Halloween concept thus, I felt compelled to wear them on a Saturday for no reason at all.

What’s on tap for your Saturday In World? What are you up to? I think I’ll watch some TV with my cats. I’m amazingly exciting!

SL Is a Community

I'm Back? I Never Went Away
Ingenue’s Lisette dress comes in more colors than the rainbow. This is melon. I added Izzie’s Sheer Tights, one of the best investments ever.

I am always fascinated by how people think of and describe Second Life. Some people say it’s a game and some say a virtual form of social media. I think of it as a community center with infinite rooms for infinite communities to grow and develop. It’s like yeast, fermenting creativity and community.

Long Time, No Blog

Long Time, No Blog

Hello, world! That’s what the blank sample post always starts with in WordPress and it seems appropriate as it has been a long time since I last blogged. Fifteen months! I won’t bore you with all the details, but I have been having some health issues that just made SL seem overwhelming.  

On to more interesting topics like this gorgeous Poker Suit from Baiastice. I don’t know why it’s called Poker Suit, except maybe the décolletage will distract other players enough to help you win. I can see that happening. The top is tailored with a pagoda shoulder, a fitted waist, and a styling HUD that allows you to wear it cropped or with a peplum. You can also wear it with the bra showing or hidden and choose from a range of colors. The pencil skirt length can also be shortened with the HUD. There are a range of solid and prints. I chose this lovely lace brocade. With the print, I wanted a simple, classic shoe and there’s nothing more classic than Slink’s Siren stilettos

The beautiful pagoda shoulders add architectural interest to the Poker Suit jacket.

The jewelry is from Kunglers. I am wearing the Lola necklace and Vera earrings. Both come with a HUD scripted to allow changes to the metal and stones. The necklace also allows us to change the color of the cords. The nails are from AlaskaMetro, the Kimono manicure suiting the laciness of the suit.

I love Dura’s short hair. 

Finally, Glam Affair’s Stella adds the final touches.
