I Travel Far Away

Only in Second Life can you travel through serene places such as The Far Away in heels.  I love this sim, created by AM Radio. Most of AM’s sims have closed down I believe, but The Far Away still exists for all of us to enjoy a peaceful quiet moment on the grid.  The entire sim reminds me of my hometown back in Indiana.

A couple of really great items to show you today.  TRUTH has three new hair releases that came out today.  All three are incredibly unique and a lot of fun.  Two are rigged mesh, but the one I’m wearing above is not mesh!  The headband is color change.  Too cute!

Second, I wanted to show off this awesome mesh skirt from [Echo].  It comes in a few sizes, as well as “wide” and “slim” versions too.  The small slim fit me really nicely.  Alpha layers are included.  The rigging moves nicely as well.  This store is one that every time something new is released I become a little more impressed than I was before.  The texture work is always so well done, as well as the sculpt/mesh work.

Lastly, this suitcase is part of a pose pack from Adorkable.  You can find the set at a VERY reasonable price right now at the new event called The Attic.  The event is currently featuring items inspired from the years 1955 – 1960.  The whole place is filled with some really fantastic deals/items so you should certainly check it out.

Hope you all had a really pleasant weekend :) The weather here has been absolutely perfect. I think I’ll get my butt off this computer and go out and enjoy it!

Fresh Freckles

Warm temperatures instantly makes me think of sunshine and freckles.  I absolutely love this time of the year.  Today i’ve paired the new Leah skin from Glam Affair (which is most definitely one of Aida Ewing’s best releases to date!) with my adorable freckles from L. Fauna.  I just may have to keep this combo around for a while because I think it’s just perfect together!  The Leah skin is officially out at Glam Affair now and demos are of course available!  There are great brow options, awesome cosmetic packs, and so many great tones and options to choose from.  Leah is LOVELY!

Two other new releases I’m wearing today are both mesh.  My beautiful dress is from coldLogic, and is their newest release, and my adorable braided mesh hair is from TRUTH.  I’ll be honest about coldLogic for a moment.  When they first opened I went and tried a few things on and they weren’t all that flattering on my body.  I’m not sure if it was my shape, the way the items were rigged, or what it was that specifically turned me off to them initially.  That being said, I know own a jacket/tube top combo, a gorgeous collared shirt, and now this dress and I could not be more pleased.  They are three of my new favorite items in my inventory.  I think this is a store that is going to continue to grow and become better and better as time goes on.

It’s Friday! Go out and enjoy the day! I have plans of baseball, The Hunger Games movie, and enjoying every bit of my awesome free time! <3

Bike Night

One of the best things about Second Life is the ability to go on wacky dates that you wouldn’t normally be able to do in your real life.  A good example?  How about an Egyptian pyramid maze by bicycle?  Snakes, crumbling walkways, alligator infested waters, and much more awaited us on our little adventure.  You can find the maze, and a lot of really awesome stuff at the sim Kalepa.

Last night, Ark and I had the opportunity to hang out with our friend’s Jett and Kat.  It’s always a great time when we get to spend some time with them, and last night was one of those fun carefree nights that always lead to some adventure.

Really, I wanted to keep this post short and sweet today and point out these amazing bikes from What Next.  Jett kindly found them for us, and they really made our evening a lot of fun.  The bikes come with some great details, and fun animations.  You just wear them, turn your AO off, and voila!

Hope y’all have a great Thursday! :)

Bang Bang

First and foremost let me apologize…. I am not badass. At all. In fact, I’m quite the opposite.  So the faux tough girl act you see in the above photo probably looks a little silly.  It’d probably be a lot more logical for me to be holding two kittens instead.

That being said, today is talented blogger, pose maker, and all around Mr. Nice Guy Bouncer Criss‘s one year blog anniversary, and I found it suitable to show off his newest pose set from Bounce This Poses. I’m really digging this set.  It comes with two guns, which are color change, and a variety of poses to choose from.  Great for photos that you need to create a story with, or if you just wanna pretend to look really badass like I did (you’ll probably look a LOT more tough then I looked).

Sakide has released some beautiful tops for Fashionably Late this week.  The tops come with this adorable sculpted bow that wraps around your bust.  A few color are available.  I wish you could see the back of the top in this photo as well because it’s REALLY cute/sexy.

I wanted to mention my jeans as well today.  They are from Crash Republic and they have the best textures on them.  A slight touch of leopard print mixed into the denim, which makes them SO fun.  These are certainly going to be a new favorite.

Lastly, I wanted to show off my new aviators.  I don’t wear sunglasses very often in Second Life, but these are quite cute.  They are from a store called Scrub, which is a new find for me.  The lenses and frames are also texture change.

I guess that’s about it for today.  This week has been filled with lots of new things and it’s only Wednesday!  Have you heard about the new Firestorm FUI Beta?  or how about Direct Delivery for Marketplace that Linden Lab is rolling out today?  Read up on both! They are both awesome.

POLL: Do you change your hair color often in Second Life?

I was a badly behaving blogger and didn’t do a photo for a blog post today, so I figured i’d pester you all with a new poll!  Feel free to comment and explain your answer, or tell us some of your favorite colors to wear!
