Hidden Cove

Standard

This is where i´ve been all weekend away, hidden taking pictures for this week blog posts, and doing something else, trying out Guild Wars 2, yes i gave in after eyeing the game for ages, and seeing all the amazing pictures my friends had from beta, i bought it. I haven´t had much time to actually play yet, but it feels nice to have some distraction, instead of blogging all the time, last week was super busy with blogging, so i am cutting back a bit, since no one can keep up doing 3 blog posts a day for long, not to mention i also have a sim to terraform and decorate and an inventory to tame.

But back to the goodies i bring you today, which is a bit of a lot, a lot of events going on, expect my tldr post of the month soon by the way, too much happening all over.

So i went to the dressing room, and tried the new Cassiopeia in the Jamaica tone, i have to say this, first time i tried a Glam Affair skin i was all, hmm doesn´t suit me much , but slowly and with time it has become one of my favourite brands to blog, even if i don´t really wear it daily, i love taking pictures in them, and i love the ticker eyebrows. I also stopped at My Attic last week if you remember well, and it´s where you can find this cute bikini i´m wearing, i´m not much of a bikini person myself, but i love well placed bows, and the bigger they are the better.

Also you all know i love cats and at the Truth district there is a fundraiser going on for one sick kitty the Archie Appeal Fundraising Event, and if there is something i don´t mind spending money on is cats, just ask my spoiled little girl, so i headed there and did some shopping, the poses i used here are also available there, and are a much needed set of behind poses by Bent.

I also finally got the chance to use this amazing beach scene by Garden Of Dreams with a hammock, tent and fire, pier and even a hidden nook with a treasure chest, which i find totally adorable.

See you all soon, if i don´t get lost in Guild Wars 2 killing foes and planting crops.

Follow me into the desert

Standard

Today i bring you a mix of Vintage Fair and COLLABOR88 as i stroll thru a desert of white sand and golden skies, only available in SL of course, and it´s delitghful that you can get these sort of more different environments in a virtual world, remind us of all that is different and reaches out of the RL normality.

The location here is Dark Tears, one of the many locations available thru the Destination Guide, which is always my first options when i need a different location for pictures another is the [SL] Blogger Support  blog Locations list.

So today follow me into the desert until i find a new pretty location.

Closed for lunch?

Standard

When ever i see shops closed i think they are probably closed for lunch and will be open soon, that is the feeling i get at the Vintage Fair location at the moment, when we wait for it to open, has shop owners slowly finish up their booth decor on the last hours before opening, the anticipation, and suspense is thick and palpable.

Every street seems quiet with the odd passerby, a blogger perhaps doing some last minute shopping, a designer finishing up small touches on their booth making sure everything is set up for sale and prices are set, a random organization member, looking for a small misplaced prim or board, almost everything is set up since only 3 hours are left before the fair opens, soon this beautiful empty streets and stores, built by Cory Edo owner of  Trompe Loeil and also one of the Fair sponsors, will be filled with people, shoppers going thru every booth or jumping to their favourite shops.

In the meanwhile i just stand here, taking a few couple of pictures to show the whole area and Cory´s amazing work with mesh, with the usual quality we´ve come to expect, after all everyone is out for lunch, and soon they will come back, at 4 pm SL time to be more precise, and i will wait for them to start arriving, then quietly head back home while the rush hour fills the streets with joy, laughter and random chattering.

Get ready everyone, because August will be  a month of Vintage Fair, retro, old times, as we celebrate a whole century of fashion in all it´s glory, have all a lovely weekend.

It´s rorschach and prozac and everything is groovy

Standard

I know i picked a funny title for today, and it´s a line from The Curse of Millhaven by Nick Cave, it was also the inspiration for this dress by Geometry available now at FaMESHed and in several colours.

It just seemed perfect to use with the Bent. prop a small preview from what will be at  Vintage Fair next saturday, this one was modified tho since it comes in simple blank blue tinting, i recolored most of the front, and retextured the inside walls, i love props you can mod and make them a little your own.

Also from Vintage Fair is the skin i´m wearing by theSkinnery, this is just the skin, but you´ll also find a really cute flapper makeup for it there, i´ll probably be showing you all later.

In the meanwhile, I´m breaking out of this small town, with golden sunsets, and everything is groovy and everything is fine, see you all soon.

Tide of words

Standard

 Today´s blog is not really about anything specific, but while on a break from hair, which i will pic up again soon, since i have so much to show you all from Hair Fair, but i needed a change so i tped randomly thru the destination guide, in some of my newest aquisicions, ending up at Mysterious Wave, where running away from the tides, i was chased down by words and birds.

So Today i bring you something from one of my favourite places, The Gallery Gift Shop, that has celebrate their birthday with new things for sale, a hunt and most importantly a whole new build, a fresh look making the place look wider and easier to navigate. I did manage to find all hunt items but today i am showing you these gorgeous and colourful, versions of Roza by Glam Affair that i bought at the gallery and is available in 3 different colours.

Speaking of birthdays, next month, it will be COLLABOR88´s first anniversary, and i heard about a very special edition of it, involving all the stores, that have been present for this last year at the event.

But enough about birthdays, and a bit more of this month´s My Second Box, women´s edition, the second now of  one of my favourite concepts, and surely the best way to get familiar with new brands, last nite i logged in to received another item from it, this lovely Aura dress, that seemed perfect for the glam Affair skin in pink, and Wasabi´s Pills version of the Princess hair in vanilla pudding for the last Fifty Linden Friday.

That´s all for now folks, don´t let words flood you.

Pose me in blocks and colours

Standard

A few days ago i saw the notice on plurk that this cube colourful wall by Bent. was available at The Retreat event , I´m also on the shops group, and by 250L  i´ve been receiving all the releases tru the group, and as soon has a grabbed it i ran off to my platform to play with the poses, it was a cute colourful wall with 10 poses and me being me i had to rezz a bunch and totally deconstruct it, see i´m the worst kind of costumer, if you put something in my hands that is mod, i will totally poke it and end up using in ways you hadn´t imagined.

So after much poking and fiddling with poses by rotating the position moving it to hell and back i took this pic, and also asked the shop owner, the lovely Catherine Fairport over on plurk if she was considering doing a blank/white version of the wall since this one was mod, that we could recolour ourselves, because i´m a pain in the ass like that. The next day there it was a new version of the wall now in cube form and all white and mod perfect for people like me who love bugging creators.

Today i finally had time to play with it and you will see by my second pic an example of what you can do with it, of course the possibilities are endless and you can find it for sale here, for a very good price until sunday.

Oh and by the way what more appropriate to start the weekend with some cute basic tops by fri.day, (yes they are doing mesh also now, and i can´t wait to see what else they have up for new releases soon).

Funky Color Block Prop (The Retreat)  and Le Cube Prop by Bent.

A little bit country

Standard

Which is a look i rarely go for, but it was perfect to show of items for a few events going on atm, first i´ll start with the second anniversary of CHIC Management with CHIC², where you can find this amazing mesh prop and the first big one from BENT, I´ve been on the BENT group for a few times, and i quite like it the entry fee is 250L and you get sent quite a few poses, except for those that are made for events like this one, although there will probably be a shop in the future, so join up while you can, is well worth it.

Next event is Mesh Around who has become one of the most popular hunts, I´ve seen so far this year, pretty fast, not only by the excellent organization by Ego Co. but also by the quality of the merchants and hunt gifts in it. And from the hunt is where you can find this gorgeous Ingenue top i´m wearing both in this colour and green.

And the 3rd event featured in this blog post is My Attic, which is going on it´s second edition and looks pretty promising, giving us good quality items and very good prices, and where i bought this super cute .ploom hair.

Here it is a mid day quick post with a taste of country.

World Goth Fair part 2

Standard

Another lovely batch of Goth Fair goodies, as you know i´ve been blogging The World Goth Fair that goes from the 15th and lasts all the way to the 31st of May, and it will benefit the Sophie Lancaster Foundation with the full support of the good people of World Goth Day. Also part of the World Goth Day SL celebrations is the ongoing WGD Nightstalker Hunt that started on the 1st, you can find a list of all hunt participants here.

And today i bring you another batch of cool stores and some more gothy items, let´s start of with Avatar Bizarre that has this beautiful Marie Antoinette gown in black and also one of their now famous adorable wearable Cthulhus this one of mercy as fair exclusive items (the little cthulhu i´ll show later) in this case paired with one of The Little Bat, gatcha collars.

I also bring you today another gatcha price this one from ezura, the cute little lolita dress available in several colors at their gatcha paired with this gorgeous House of Rain necklace and earings set, a new shop that made it´s debut at the Hunt and fair. Now HoR does partial mesh jewelry which i am totally in love with, since i can easily resize it to fit my petite avatar and that you will be seeing around here a lot, on the backdrop of my second picture you can see the amazing photo that is the donation item for the Virtual Alchemy Photography, i´m also featuring another one of the muses dresses here, and i have a feeling you will see more around the blog.

Another thing you will se a lot are lassitude & ennui shoes, and why you may ask? Because i simply adore them, and not only do they rock the goth look, but the shop is also a surprise addition to the fair. Another shop in the fair but hard to blog about but very well worth to mention,  hard to blog because it sells sculpted creators packs, and worth to mention because of it´s quality, is Girl Not Included.

Also included in this post are a few more goodies from The Summer Beauty Festival, that is still running and will run until the  25th, so still time to shop for some makeup.
