I kept thinking of the Red Queen from the delightful tale, Alice in Wonderland today as I was playing dress up. (This red backdrop also made me think of my dear friend Chance Raynier. We all know how much he LOVES the color RED!) There are a few things that could be the reason why I keep thinking of the Red Queen with this outfit. The wild new hair from TRUTH, or the Striped Queen tops from Somnia. How about these ridiculously sexy mesh boots from Pixel Mode? All three are making me feel a little bit wild and a little bit feisty today.
TRUTH released three new hairstyles this week. All three are pretty different from one another and fantastic. I’ll be showcasing the other two at some point this week. This was my favorite of the releases. It brings me to the 80′s with the awesome crimp style. It looks like I grabbed a can of Aqua Net and went to town!
Somnia always has really cute items and these striped tops would go perfect with a pair of jeans and a scarf. They come in a multitude of colors, and I love how the seams are matched up nicely on the sides of the top. I know that is quite a challenge with striped textures so it’s definitely appreciated when a designer takes the time to line them up beautifully. Well done!
Pixel Mode is back and better than ever with this new mesh release. Tya mentioned she was starting off “simple” with this release, but these boots are gorgeous in every single way. The Kasi mesh boot comes in a variety of colors and gives you the option to resize! Yes! Mesh that can be sized! You can adjust the width, height, and depth on these as well as the sole color. These are perfect for the fall and winter season. I’m really excited about all the mesh items that keep being released! They keep getting better and better and designers are doing a great job of offering a large variety of sizing options, etc.
I know I mentioned this pose pack in my previous post but I want to mention it again. Adorkable just released this “kooky dork” pack at her store and it’s just the best. I had the hardest time deciding which pose to use out of all the ones offered. Every single pose is fantastic and that is rare in a pack of poses. Usually I find one or two I love in each pack and stick to those, but all the poses offered in this are perfect!

As many of you know, I met my real life boyfriend (Arkansas Sorbet) here in Second Life a little over two years ago. I moved halfway across the country to be with him and now we live in a tiny one bedroom apartment together. He’s finishing up school, and I’m working a fantastic job as a nanny, but like many college students/recent graduates we are BROKE. We try and go out on the weekends at least once to dinner and a movie (we saw Drive this weekend and it was fantastic. Very intense, but fantastic!), but during the week we don’t do a whole lot but stick to our normal routines.
We decided to start doing a “date night” in Second Life each Wednesday night. This gives us a chance to connect without spending a lot of money or leaving the house! Some may find this a little strange since we live together, but our first date was a huge success. We decided to go check out some of the haunted houses in Second Life and specifically one of the places really stood out.
The Haunted Manor at The Old Victorian House is by far the coolest haunted place that I’ve found to date in Second Life. The small property is filled with twisted turns and surprises and the basement even has a place you can buy a lot of the items inside the manor. Everything is so impressive about this place! I physically jumped and squealed out loud at a few of the frightening effects the place had. Floating items on tables, things popping out of walls, ghostly ghouls following you. I also really suggest you try out the bed. You will laugh when you see what it does!
If you take the time to check it out I suggest you set your windlight to midnight and turn up your volume LOUD! Be prepared to jump and giggle and umm… I totally suggest bringing a hot date to snuggle up against when you get scared!
A really fantastic event is starting today called 4.44.444. The event is being held to celebrate the fourth birthday of Free*Style! This is an anniversary event you do not want to miss. Countless designers have come together to feature a variety of items at either 4 lindens, 44 lindens, or 444 lindens. All fantastic deals on some beautiful items. In the photos above I am wearing just a few of my favorites so far. Rumor has it the event also has some great gifts scattered around!
My “Friday Night” dress is from 1 Hundred. I love how flashy and sexy it is, and the neckline on it is lovely as well. The perfect dress to wear out dancing…if only I was gutsy enough to wear something like it in my real life! The earrings I paired with the dress are from Undefined Lilies. The first word that comes to my mind when I think of these earrings or anything else this cute little store has to offer is “darling”. Everything is just absolutely darling! My pose is from Adorkable! It’s from the “Kooky Dork” pack. It’s not included in the event, but can be found at their store!
So make sure to wander over and check out all that the 4.44.444 event has to offer. There is destined to be something there for everyone!
The Royal Living Pumpkin Hunt begins today and runs through October 14th! Check out the fantastic blog post that the magazine has put together showing off all the pumpkin hunt has to offer!

Find the pumpkins and get the cottage while it’s only 45 lindens!

In the past few months I’ve had the opportunity to get to know a really fantastic & talented DJ in the Second Life community, Mr. Anubis Darkwatch. I feel very grateful to call him a friend, and it’s been a great experience getting to know him. Not to mention we coincidentally live very close to one another in our real lives which is always a fun topic of conversation. He alongside his friend/business partner Miss Betty Page have created a new radio station for the Second Life community called SLeek Radio.
I am having so much fun listening in on this station. It plays a multitude of tunes in a wide variety of genres. We’ve been rocking out to it at The Pixel Bean quite frequently and the comments flooding in about how much people enjoy the station is almost overwhelming. It’s a radio station that I truly believe is going to be taking over the grid in a short amount of time.
I had the opportunity to do a sound wave for the radio station. I felt ridiculously honored, as well as rather shy over it. Feel free to make fun of my corny voice! It was really amazing to be able to do something alongside some people who I look up to including Strawberry Singh, Keira Seerose, and Felicity Blumenthal. All three women also did sound bytes for the radio station and their voices are hot hot hot! So check them out, and make sure to check out what SLeek Radio can do for you!
