Eat. Sleep. Blog.

As bloggers, we spend nearly our entire time in this hobby praising and showing appreciation to designers across the grid.  It means quite a lot to us when a designer takes the time to show appreciation to us in return.  Adorkable Peapod of Adorkable Poses took sometime to create bloggers a lovely little conversation bubble blogger pack!  The bubble is unisex with 5 various static poses and a conversation bubble with eighteen different blogger themed phrases!  How cute!  Thank you so much Adorkable for taking the time to appreciate those who love and admire you daily.  It means quite a bit to us!

Anyalia Pearl of the newer store Spright has just released a pack of dresses called the Inspire Dress.  Many people have already picked up a copy of this adorable dress, and quite honestly I recommend fat packing the item because you’ll have a challenging time deciding on a color.  This dress has gotten a lot of attention not only because it’s beautiful, and well made, but also because some people have had issues with the textures rezzing properly on it.  I do not believe this is a fault of the designers, but once again one of those mesh glitches that have yet to be worked out.  Anyalia believes she’s found a solution and is in the process of sending out an updated version of the product to those who purchased it.  If for some reason you are still having issues with your dress textures rezzing fully there is a solution I’d like to share with you:

- Right click on an object near you and into edit mode.

- Then click on the dress while in edit mode.

- Go to the texture tab.

- Wait patiently a couple seconds or click on the texture box in the texture menu.

- Voila! Your dress should now be rezzed fully.

Silly Second Life, and it’s silly glitches sometimes!  Do not let this interfere from snatching up this dress, as I think Anyalia did an outstanding job on it.  Spright is certainly going to be a store with plenty to offer in the coming months!

Lastly, but definitely not least, I want to mention my cute, summer themed necklace from RezIspa Loc.  You can pick up this necklace in three various styles with three different types of flowers.  A daisy, a sunflower, or a rose.  I chose to wear the rose one with this particular outfit!  RezIspa Loc has recently released a whole slew of new inventory so I’d sneak on over when you find some time and see what all she has to offer!

I’ve been getting a big kick out of all the “Golden Peen” entries so far for the silly little contest I’m doing.  You are all so creative! Can’t wait to see more!

The Golden Peen…Contest?

Let me start this post off with a warning.  This is entirely Miss Strawberry Singh’s fault.  Yup. You heard me.

You see… today, the lovely Miss Berry sent me a (not so) little gift.  A glowing gift! A golden gift! A very…big…yes big gift. (Is that thing bigger than my forearm?)  I was quite flattered by this lovely golden gift, but I wasn’t entirely sure what I should do with it. (Get those thoughts out of your head right this instant!)

I’ve decided to enlist the help of my fellow Second Lifers…. but first you will have to pick up your own copy of this beautiful golden gift.  You would think a gift of this…magnitude… would go for such a high price, but in fact, you can find this glowing gift on marketplace for only 15 lindens!  So go run along and pick up your copy, and I’ll tell you what to do next!

Okay.  Do you have your golden gift?  No? You don’t you say? Well! Go get it! Quick!

Okay…nowwww do you have your magical glowing golden gift? This is what I want you to do.  Take a funny picture with your new… friend.  It can be anything as long as it’s funny and not overly crude.  (I know, you are probably asking yourself….well Har, you just told us to take a pic with a peen, how is that not crude?  Just be FUNNY!)  Be creative!  Post a link to the pic in the comments on this post.  I will give you all till Friday the 25th to post the links, and then I will pick my favorite top three.  The top three chosen I will post with an option to vote.  I’ll let voting run through the weekend and on Monday the 28th, I will let you all know the winner.

The winner will get three free portraits from me.  You can use these for yourself or give them to some unknowing friends!  (Yeah I know the prize totally sucks but hey! The contest will be FUN.)

Okay now. Run along. You have peen pics to take.

and Berry?  This was all your fault.

Poche

Cute. Cozy. and Classy.  The three words that come to mind when I think about the little cafe called Poche.  It seems often times, it’s hard to find a place in Second Life that exudes such a perfect amount of ambiance, and this place does it.  The little cafe is filled to the brim with adorable items (some which are freebies!), cozy little tables with great views, winding paths in the woods, and much more.  Piano music plays softly in the background, enticing you to find a place to curl up and spend the day.  I’ll keep this short and sweet today, as I want to encourage you to go and check the place out for yourself.  You won’t regret it!  It’s the perfect little spot to cozy up on a beautiful Sunday afternoon.

Cheers! <3

Candy

The entire time I was working on this photograph all I could think about what when I was little.  I spent my summers in small town Indiana with my grandmother.  There was a little general store type place across the street from her house, and she would give me money to run over and buy candy.  My favorite piece of candy to come home with was a ring pop.  Especially the cherry flavored ones!  Oh sweet memories…

Lots of sweet new things to mention in this photo alongside my fabulous candy ring.  Chain and Vine and Wasabi Pills have both released beautiful new items.  The tube tops from Chain and Vine come in an array of colors and quite a few different sizes which is very convenient.  Such a simple, staple, quality item for your inventory.  I enjoyed pairing the simplicity of the top with edgy look of this hair.  It’s a great style from Wasabi Pills and a perfect addiction to my “short hair” folder!

Oh…I guess I’ll leave you with a song.  I really should leave y’all with tunes more often.  I listen to music every single time I make a blog entry! Maybe I’ll start.  Today it’s… boy band tunes!  If you know me, you know how much I love my boy bands! I don’t care if i’m 26! Enjoy the tune!

By The River

Like I mentioned yesterday, I had another coldLogic item I wanted to show off to y’all!  The new lockhart top is the perfect mix of sexy, classy, and sweet.  I picked it up in navy but it comes in a multitude of beautiful colors.  It was one of those tops I was very tempted to fatpack.

Elikatira just released three new beautiful mesh hairstyles.  This updo was my favorite of the three.  I swear, I can never have enough updos.  I love that the hair sweeps across the front of my face hiding part of it.  If you are like me you will have a hard time deciding which of the three to pick up…and you’ll more than likely leave with all of them.

I also wanted to mention a little something about what’s behind me in the photo above.  I know the photo does not do the product justice, so I want to encourage you all to check it out on your own.  Landscapes Unlimited has made a virtual Yosemite sim surround that is absolutely phenomenal.  It is the most beautiful sim surround i’ve seen to date.  Waterfalls, rivers, lakes, mountains, and trees all surrounding a sim.  Stop by the Landscapes Unlimited sim to see it in person.  It’s stunning!

Happy Friday everyone!
