Brighten Up

I tend to gravitate towards neutrals, and darker colors when I decorate in Second Life.  It’s challenging for me to do lighter tones, even if they are neutral.  I tried hard to do a lighter palette for this home and garden post, and I hope you like it!

A few mentions for this post.  This skybox is adorable, and a former release from Floorplan.  It’s the perfect size for one person and has an entry, living area, and two rooms off to the side of it.  I love the color palette and the fireplace and built in bookcases.  Floorplan is quickly becoming a favorite store of mine in Second Life. I’m always excited with each new release Ms. Serin puts out.

Have you heard the news?  Pixel Mode now has home items available for purchase.  Ms. Fallingbridge’s first release is absolutely beautiful, and I encourage you to stop by her store to check it out.  The beautiful couch and coffee table in this post are two new handcrafted original mesh items up for grabs.

I’ll leave the rest up to the credits! Enjoy your weekend. <3

Go Home Harlow…You’re Drunk.

Okay, so maybe i’m not REALLY drunk…but this post made me think of all the funny go home you’re drunk meme’s.  I just had so many fun, colorful, and silly things to show you today that I decided to just combine them all into ONE post!

Drift has released these awesome new tanks for warmer weather that I absolutely love.  My favorite part about the mesh tank is that it comes with a HUD.  Instead of just getting one color, or having an inventory littered with multiple copies, you are given the option of a HUD!  The HUD comes with 10 solid colors, and 5 beautiful striped patterns as well.  It’s a great tank to keep around now that spring time is heating up!

Maxwell Graf just released this hilarious and awesome “brostache” set at Rustica.  I’m going to just copy and paste directly from the NC what Mr. Graf said about these AMAZING set because quite frankly it’s hilarious:

“Quite honestly, you got yourself a brostache. Bishes love mustaches. Even if you regularly wake up wondering if you should take something to reduce your testosterone levels just a bit, or if your truck requires a stepladder to get into…adding one of these lipmonsters to your avatar will further add to how badass you really are.

You have now entered machismo level – BROSTASHIO.

Congratulations. With this one accessory, you can do more than you ever dreamed possible. Tools instantly become familiar. You can shoot AND drink at the same time. You can take a donkey punch with a smile on your face, then kick the crap out of the person who donkey punched you. Seriously.

People will not fuck with you now. Just put one of these on and shutup.”

Needless to say, this post is filled with all sorts of awesome, so please see my credits to see where it’s all from!

Leather

I am never totally certain about shades of brown and black together. I know there are ways to pull off a specific look, but I always feel I manage to butcher a look when I try to put it together.  I hope my look above is reasonable.  I tried to tie it all together with a necklace with both colors involved, and balance out the overall ensemble.

I sure do love blogging, and photography, but when it comes to the fashion aspect of blogging in Second Life, i’m never fully certain! The last thing I feel I am is a “fashionista!” :P

In The Stillness

This month at Zodiac is the month of Pisces, and it’s filled to the brim with exciting goodies focusing around the theme of sensitivity, kindness, and intuition.  I was trying to think of something that I felt fit the Pisces mood and the image above was what I came up with.

I think I can really relate lately to the themes surrounding Pisces.  I’ve had to kind of step back from a few things intuitively lately, and just sit in the stillness of life for a while.  I found myself lacking some important characteristics that I feel I should encompass, and it’s time to just reflect and find peace in life.  Needless to say the quiet and solitude is certainly doing me some good, and in no time I feel I’ll be back to being myself.

Make sure to stop by Zodiac this month to find all sorts of great goodies.

Valentina

I feel like I have so much to tell you about today!  Lots of great fashion items, events, and more!

First things first, since I’ve been behind on my blogging, I FINALLY want to take the opportunity to tell you about Global Domination!  This fabulous interactive adventure has been put together by The Hottie Cooterati Experience, and takes you all across the global grid solving clues, puzzles, and scavenging for items in hopes to complete the mission you’ve been assigned!  You can learn all about how to play, where to pick up passports, and the rules of the game here!  I picked my passport up at Maxi Gossamer, and received this beautiful Valentina Cross necklace and earrings set you see above!   Each store has a unique gift that can be yours depending on where you pick your passport HUD up.  You can see the special gifts you receive after your passport purchase here.  Once you’ve completed the challenging puzzles and the adventure you can win all sorts of fantastic prizes.  There are grand prize options for the first three individuals to finish the puzzle! The items to be received are incredible and amazing quality so make sure to check out Global Domination and join in the fun!

I wanted to briefly mention what I’m wearing today as well.  Laviere has put out this adorable mesh blouse and high waisted skirt at Collabor88 this month.  It comes in a handful of classic colors and fit so easily.  It comes with an optional peter pan style collar that I chose not to wear for this post, but it also looks great with the entire ensemble.  I paired the outfit with a couture hat from Glam Affair.

One of the things I wanted to make sure to tell you all about was Belleza’s new “Best Buys”.  The skin above is unfortunately not on the “Best Buy” list any longer, as it is only available for the first weekend of every month, but it gives you an idea of what great quality you can receive at an affordable price.  The first weekend of every month Belleza will release exclusive skins at a discounted price of 400 lindens.  You will only be able to snatch these skins up for three days so I strongly encourage you join the in world group, or check our their website frequently to know when the skins will be available.

Well, I think that covers everything I wanted to tell you about.  I hope everyone has had a fantastic weekend!
