A room with some view

Standard

Today i bring you guys not a view but a little safe corner, for colourful girly things, trunks for clothes and hat boxes from Culprit a gorgeous print, showing some leg from Cracked Mirror, shoes that string into a delicate silky bow from lassitude & ennui. Colourful walls and big windows by Zigana, a new Wasabi Pills classic hair, delicate and detailed jewelry, but all feels is casual in this place thanks to Exposeur.

These are the lazy days of summer where Vintage Fair takes up most of my mind, be it the pretty cute small trinkets and trunks from Culprit, or the cute gogo dress by Cracked Mirror, as usual  love bangs and a haircut that allows me to show of jewelry.

I also finally received the My Second Box samples for this month, and in it came these super cute and relaxed Exposeur poses, along with a couple pose, i didn´t get to see much of this past week Fifty Linden Friday tho, but i did get these LaGyo earings and wow the reflections on them are amazing.

Last but not least these gorgeous new sandals from lassitude & ennui for L´accessoires a brand new event that started it´s first edition this month, and so far loads of goodies in terms or shoes, hats and jewelry.

Hopefully later i can bring you some more goodies a new release and a beautiful scene, in the meanwhile in case you missed it i did another blog yesterday for The Hottie Cooterati experience, with a preview for Zodiac´s edition of Virgo that starts tomorrow, and you can find it here: Inner Calm.

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.

Me in a fancy chair

Standard

About a week or two ago i started my first challenge, i had never done of these really, but this tumblr Men Sitting in Fancy Chairs, linked on plurk by Alice Demonia, was just so full of awesome, and an incredible idea, and i wasn´t the only one who thought so, because Ruby Starlight from Exposeur liked it so much she did two pose sets inspired on it, with chair included, one for men and one for us ladies.

So as soon as i saw Ruby´s add for the poses i ran over to the shop to get both sets, but i already knew what chair i wanted to use, and even if Ruby´s is very well done, the chair i´m using here has it´s own story.

It all started over a month or two ago when i spotted this chair by 19 Motorcycle in SL not once not twice, but at least 4/5 times in different locations, well i became obsessed about it, a fast tp to the store and i saw the chair there, but couldn´t find it on sale anywhere, eventually i simply gave up, and went on about my days spotting the chair occasionally and becoming frustrated by not having it.

Until one day why checking out the second edition of Fluid, with the lovely Pancake over from Renoobed, i see the chair there at the event has a decoration prop, frustrated i vented in local chat how much i loved it but couldn´t find it for sale at the shop, a few minutes after i left the event i get a im from a stranger, who had heard my silly rant and informed me the chair was a freebie from the store, that you could get from the board at the entrance, of course i ran over to grab it after all this time looking for it was just under my nose.

So anyways, here it is a challenge, a story, hopefully not to boring, and a chair with me sitting on it, showing off some of the goodies from several events in SL, my gorgeous necklace from Maxi Gossamer is from COLLABOR88,  and my fingers are crossed that Maxi will become an event regular, the earings are from Chloe i heard has some new goodies coming out soon to events.

You can find this gorgeous sequined top by Cracked Mirror at this month´s edition of My Second Box, and the hair is one of Exile´s Hair Fair releases who´s donations for WIGS for KIDS has reached over 3.000 dollars so far.

So here i am Sitting in a probably not so fancy but certainly different chair, and i know i´m probably not as exciting as the Tumbrl pictures, but here it is my first try at my very own first challenge. For other challenge entries please check out the Flickr Group. See you all soon with more new hair.

Four times the trouble

Standard

Today i´m cloning Ely to bring you dresses and new shoes, I´ll start with the shoes, these are the new release from lassitude and ennui, the shop i mentioned in my earlier blog post this week, on the shops that i like feature, and i will try to feature the sandals in more detail later, because i am totally  in love with them. They come in several colors, the colour you buy is basically for the sole, since the straps are colour changeable and so are the buttons on them, so here i am wearing the red soles with orange straps and golden buttons, that go very well with this mix of warm toned Bilo dresses.

Now the dresses i´m wearing here 4 different ones from Bilo, 3 of them new release, and one available at CHIC²CHIC Management  second anniversary event, that is ending soon, more specifically on the 24th so hurry up people still a couple of days left for shopping.

I´ve been wearing Bilo since i started blogging, it´s defenitly one of my favourite original brands in SL and i was so happy to see them at CHIC², and for seeing so many releases in the past couple of weeks.

Another thing worth mentioning id the pose on the pic, i´ve been cloning Ely for group shots since i don´t have any alts in SL, and this Glitterati pose was way to fun not too use, and is part of the contents of Glitterati´s samples for  My Second Box, a surprisingly fresh new concept, you join their inworld group every month and pay 300L for those months samples, that will be sent to group by five different stores, and seeing by this months samples is well worth joining.

Later on we will talk about many things, from Zombies to fairy tales, and a little also about women. So stay tuned folks and remember that it´s Friday.

25 cents

Standard

Well not rally 25 cents but 50 linden, that’s how Fifty Linden Friday works, for a long time it was one of my favorite events but sadly a few months ago it ended in an epic last edition filled with amazing bargains, but last week it also came back, and is like an old friend whom you haven´t seen for ages suddenly showed up and said hi did you miss me?

So from i advise everyone to join their inworld group to get the weekly list of shops participating, and this week i bring you this really cute, cheap and mesh (i was seriously impressed by the low land impact of this piece) set of lemonade stand and stool with several poses from Cheeky Pea.

I also bring you another event today and that event is a very interesting idea it´s called My Second Box, and i joined this months first edition of My Second Box Women, the concept is very cool and different from most events, the idea basically is you join the Second Box group and pay 300L to join it, and during that month you receive samples from 5 different creators, this month´s creators where: Adore & Abhor, BOTHER, Elymode, Glitterati and La Petite Morte, you can see images of the items available here on the Flickr group, or their blog linked above, so far it was worth the 300L to join it, and i really like it since each month you can decide if you believe it´s worth joining.

Two things i am wearing for the first time is a tube top and some Dura hair. I´ll start with the tube top: Since mesh came to SL, I´ve seen tube tops and tube dresses, all over shops and feeds, so far i´ve stayed away from them because they seem all to be done from the same couple of templates, and extremely bulky, so far this Maitreya piece is the one i would recommend, it actually looks like a proper tube top, fitting and very well done, as on the subject of templates, I´ll probably address it at some point, since it deserves it´s own blog post.

As for the Hair, I had never tried blogged Dura before, actually i had never shopped there even, my boyfriend was the one who showed me the shop because he likes the men’s hair and though i might be interested, I was really impressed with he models, some are imensively cute, but i don´t like th texture on the light colours, which is perfect for me since i rarely go light, except for a few exceptions.

Last but not least i bring you these super cute mesh hotpants from 22769 and a prize on the Depraved Summer Hunt, you can find the shops and slurls for them as well as hints on the link above.

Happy shopping and happy hunting.

Wet grass

Standard

Tonite I sit on wet grass, wet grass due to Fluid, another The Ego Co. event, the organizer of the widely popular Mesh Around Hunt that ends today. And while we lament the end of this amazing hunt we celebrate the start of a new event, and  a longer lasting one, with Fluid every 2 weeks we have a new round of designers with new exclusive items, all related to posing and props today i picked this lovely table from flowey, and i also wore a few things from other events.

sl is buzzing with events atm a lot of them starting today, first Fluid that you can find here, besides Fluid we had the return of one of my all time favorite events, Fifty Linden Friday, in the meanwhile i also received the first items from My Second Box, which is an awesome new concept, well worth the 300L you pay to join the group.

And last but not least still going on is  CHIC²CHIC Management  second anniversary event, also as you might have  seen my last post Oopskate is later on tonite at 10pm SL time and you can read all about it here.

Is that enough events for you guys? Cause i might have left a few out, I´ll just sit and relax in the grass for now, thank you.
