Blog the Beat #2: Poison and Wine

You only know what I want you to
I know everything you don’t want me to
Oh your mouth is poison, your mouth is wine
You think your dreams are the same as mine
Oh I don’t love you but I always will
Oh I don’t love you but I always will
Oh I don’t love you but I always will
I always willI wish you’d hold me when I turn my back
The less I give the more I get back
Oh your hands can heal, your hands can bruise
I don’t have a choice but I’d still choose you

Oh I don’t love you but I always will
I always will

The Chapel

Just a very short second blog post today, because I wanted to show you all the beautiful chapel that Scarlet Creative has released at Home & Garden Expo 2013.  Not much to say other than you should stop by and check it out, because it’s breathtaking.

Happy Shopping everyone <3

My good friend Tya Fallingbridge, owner of Pixel Mode has somewhat recently started to dip her talented hands into home and garden items in Second Life.  When she mentioned she was going to be creating a house, I about fell off my chair!

Introducing Pixel Mode’s Fairmont Home.  This beautiful modern inspired home features an open concept layout, kitchen, dining nook, two patio areas, a fantastic spacious bedroom, and more.  My favorite feature of the house is the lighting system which allows you to illuminate the exterior in a wide range of colors and intensities.  Another feature of this home I love is the ability to tint the walls to any color I choose.  One thing that’s tough about mesh homes is the lack of modding capabilities, but with the Fairmont Home you have the ability to truly customize it to your liking. Oh…and did I mention the floors have dark and light wood options? Oh yes they do.

Another thing I’d like to mention in this post, is the store LISP.  I’m huge on supporting creators who are kind and also display amazing customer service, and I must say that Pandora Popstar, of LISP does just that.  I had trouble locating something in LISP the other day, and Pandora was nothing but kind and gracious in return.  She truly went above and beyond normal customer service.  The item I was searching for was the couch you see above.  I’ve placed two of the couches together to fill the vast space in the Fairmont living room.  My plurk timeline was very helpful in helping me decide on placement! I absolutely love the detail of the soft leather on this couch. Gorgeous!

Lastly, I wanted to mention the awesome open house that Apple Fall has going on right now.  This is Apple’s first open house and it features a wide range of absolutely beautiful furniture and decor pieces.  I was blown away by just how much he had to offer.  You can find the beautiful dining set and sputnik chandelier at the open house.

I encourage you to check out the flickr version of this photo, as it’s larger and you can see everything in much clearer detail than on my blog.

For everything else see my credits! Happy shopping! <3

Miss Cleo

News has spread faster than a wildfire about the newest skin from Glam Affair, and with good reason.  Cleo is their newest release, and by far their most stunning skin yet.  The skin includes six brow options, three freckle layers (thank you! thank you! THANK YOU!), nose layer options, lip gloss options, and realistic skin “pore” option layer as well.  The skin has endless makeup varieties and more to come soon I’m certain.

I really enjoy watching stores grow and improve, and Glam Affair manages to do that with each new skin release. Make sure to stop by and demo Cleo today! You just may fall in love.

Ellie at The Arcade

Belleza is taking part in the next round of The Arcade (which runs from June 1st – 31st!), and will be featuring a beautiful set of gacha skins.  The set will include 15 skins, 3 of which are rare.  I am modeling the beautiful Rare #1 in this photograph, and I cannot get over the immense amount of beautiful freckles.  I am obsessed with freckles, and when I saw this skin, I was instantly entranced by it.  I am certain in the next few weeks I will be blogging more skins from this set, as the whole set is absolutely gorgeous and features a wide variety of options to suit anyone’s tastes.

As always, I am very excited about this round of The Arcade.  It’s always a quality event, filled with endless talent on the grid, and it’s a fun way to get the community active and involved, trading, swapping, and discussing all their great finds at the event!

Just a few more days till you can go broke like me!
