Extravaganza

Hi everybody and HAPPY FRIDAY! I have a handful of things to tell you about today!

There is currently an event taking place in Second Life that I knew absolutely nothing about until yesterday!  It’s the Hope for Emilia event and it’s benefiting the victims of an earthquake that shook parts of Italy in recent months.  You can read more about the event and those taking part in it on their website.   Leri Miles Designs is taking part in this event and has featured this beautiful gown as an item up for grabs.  This specific color and pattern is called “Extravaganza”.  The gown is mesh, and the pattern on it is quite colorful and outspoken.  I really love the shape of this mesh piece as well. (AKA: My boobs look FAB!)

Secondly, I wanted to tell you all about RubyStarlight Writer’s new event called Zodiac.  Each month Ruby’s event will feature a new sign of the Zodiac, and items that surround that theme.  This month’s theme is Leo! From July 23rd through August 17th you can stop by the event and find all sorts of great items including an awesome set of poses from Adorkable Poses.  These poses exude confidence and the bold nature of a Leo!

The last two things I wanted to mention in this post today, were a reminder about Hair Fair, which ends on the 29th (you can find this awesome hairstyle from Elikatira at the fair!), and also my beautiful nails from Synthetique.  Miss Sara Dimitriaski has just released a new HUD for her nails that feature bright bold “crayola inspired” colors!  I love how easy it was to find a color to match my gown!

I will leave you with that today! I hope everyone had a fantastic weekend!  Gotta love Fridays! <3

Isla

Today I am officially no longer a “League Skin virgin!” I saw an ad that the talented Miss Nena Janus posted on her flickr and just knew I needed to stop by the store to demo her new skin Isla.  It was probably a grave mistake for my wallet because the instant I put the beautiful skin on I knew I was doomed!

Isla comes in seven stunning skin stones ranging from fair to dark.  The skin pack options include two freckles, black, brunette, blonde, or red brows (yay red!), nail gloves which I personally find very handy (pun totally intended), matte lipsticks, and so much more.  If you fat pack it comes with a few extra bonuses as well which I found well worth it.

I’m really pleased that I took the time to stop by League and demo this skin.  I never realized in the past how lovely League skins are, and it’s nice to add a new skin maker to my small list of skin brands that I genuinely love.  The skins is soft and beautiful on my shape, and doesn’t change my overall look too drastically.

If you are interested in the hair I’m wearing it is from Exile! I think it is swiftly becoming one of my newest favorite updos!

Keeping it short and simple today, but I encourage you all to stop by League!

The Grounds

 

As some of you may, or may not know, I just recently on Saturday night acquired a full 15,000 prim sim!  I’m in the process of creating a beautiful home for The Pixel Bean, as well as some residential plots.  The residential community is called The Grounds, and I couldn’t be more excited about it.  Right now we have a total of 7 plots, with one that is currently vacant.  It holds 600 prims.  If anyone is interested, please let me know, as it will be snatched up very quickly.  All six of our other plots filled very swiftly!

Some of the sim features include a beautiful central lake with a lovely dock for the public and community residents to make use of.  Residents, also known as The Grounds “Dwellers” can throw parties and events on the sim.  I’m hopefully going to start planning a lake party soon! The sim also features beautiful scenic walking paths, The Pixel Bean Coffeehouse, bonfire, smaller little pond for a place to relax, etc…  Each home plot also features a beautiful wooden front gate and wall to give the lots a more private and secluded feel.

I’m still in the process of setting the sim up so right now there are some bare spots that need to be landscaped.  The public is very welcome to visit the sim and make use of it for photos and such, I just ask that you keep to the public pathways, the dock, or The Pixel Bean Coffeehouse.  The residential plots are private residences!

I really don’t know what I’d do without my best friend, Mr. Remy Stringfellow.  He is one of the few people who keep me sane when I’m being an obsessed workaholic.  I have been working nonstop on the sim the last few days.  Endless hours, planning, and dedication, as I try to get it “move in ready”.  Last night he slowed me down for a few to drink milkshakes, and relax.  It was certainly a great time, and a much needed break from the chaos.  This adorable set comes from What Next.  It comes in a few vibrant colors and has the BEST poses and animations in it.  Perfect for friends or lovers.  I certainly recommend stopping by What Next and checking it out.  The little tea light candles are a perfect accent to these little cafe tables.

Thank you again Mr. Stringfellow for reminding me what’s important in this virtual life, and keeping me grounded when I’m flying all over the place.  There is a reason I call you my very best friend.

Miss New Booty

I cannot believe I actually titled this post “Miss New Booty” but I honestly could not help myself!  I jokingly plurked today (which I just recently went public with again… God help my poor soul!) that my butt looked way larger than normal!  I think I’m just so used to wearing mesh that covers my “assets” that I forgot what my actual shape looked like.  Of course my booty will never be as infamous as the lovely Miss Berry’s  but you probably could set a few things on it and use it as a shelf!

I’m gonna stop talking about my butt now and get to way more important stuff. :P

This classy new dress is from Peqe and it’s called Cajsa!  I’m unsure if it was coincidence or intended but it did make me think of the popular Miss Cajsa Lilliehook, who I strongly recommend following on plurk.  She always posts adorable photos of her cat Oscar whom I just love, and is always very up to date on current events, politics, fashion, and photography in the Second Life Community.  Occasionally Oscar even sends us all a friendly plurk or two. ;) As for the dress, I must say it’s quite lovely.  The middle part of the skirt is mesh, and it comes with an optional collar.  I paired it with a pair of my newest favorite heels from Baiastice.

I wanted to mention a great sale taking place at je suis.  Julia Merosi is having a 69% off moving sale that is currently taking place.  You can find more information about the sale on her website.  I snuck over and picked myself up some bangles to wear with this outfit!  So cute! Definitely sneak over and take advantage of the sale!

The sim I am standing on is an artistic installation done by talented artist and creator Marcus Inkpen.  This creation is called The Returning  and is filled with beautiful bridges, trees, and stunning spiritually inspired structures that are certain to catch your attention.  I had a hard time choosing a spot to take this photo, and I’m certainly going to return soon.  If you are looking for great sim wide locations to shoot at I recommend checking out this flickr group.

The weekend is upon us! I hope it’s wonderful! <3
