catching my breath…

Catching my...

Walking up almost 10 flights I just need a moment to catch my breath so I can talk about Legendaire‘s newest outfit “Jordan” ~ it’s cute right and in time for the hottest summer month ~ from the shirt with the rolled up sleeves that ties around the waist, course it comes with a nice bra to go underneath and is paired with those cute shorts & belt.  Oh I will get to the purse trust me ♥  Each item shirt, bra, shorts each have their own separate hud and the shirt even has 2 separate ones with colors and patterns so you really get a lot of bang for your Linden bucks…I absolutely love the designers that truly know what we like and listen to include huds that keep an outfit fresh and trendy♥  If you are noticing my spiffy sneaks those are from Legendaire that I grabbed from another outfit ~ who says you cannot mix/match ~ Remember when you do take that ride over to Legendaire make sure you wander around as there is always lotz to see and take a peek into the discount area too ♥  Now onto the gorgeous purse am showing off, this comes with Kay Weston‘s owner/creator of Image Essentials latest prop/pose “Showcasing my Bag”  a set of 5 poses and mirrors w/bag that can be held in your hand or on your shoulder ~ looks good right and am not a bag person especially in RL as I carry a tiny bag to hold ID and phone that is it ♥♥ This pose series is now at eBENTO event and yes all rides to stores, events will be below ♥  leaving you with a quote & hugzz

a queen waits…

Queen
Somewhere in the night a queen awaits on a balcony waiting for her prince to walk in and whisk her away ~ well maybe that happens and then again the queen dresses up looking fabulous in her sparkly gown and takes her own self out to the gala ♥ When I put this gown Naeen on by .:JUMO:. I truly felt like a queen ~ this gown is stunning and when you combine it with the hair Molly also by .:JUMO:. you just feel regal. The gown has an incredible hud with 25 different colors, patterns, and textures.  Making this one gown that will become a staple in your inventory for those nights out when you want that royal look ~ I accessorized the gown with a necklace worthy from Moondance Boutique and really put on some eye makeup fitting for an Egyptian queen ♥

Royal Portrait
The gorgeous eye makeup “Isola” is by Alma ~ 3 different version to fit your head, hud includes 8 different colors ~ very dramatic and for me just was perfect to complete the look ~ the lippy “Aquatic” by Alaskametro is found at the Mermaid Cove Event giving the finishing touches ~ that gorgeous necklace by Moondance Boutique has so many combinations that you will truly want this in your closet for those special evenings out♥ Did I tell you these items with the exception of the lippy will be at Designer Showcase till the end of the month and the Mermaid Cove will be ending on the 13th so don’t waste a moment to take the ride below…Before I depart for RL couple things to mention ~ other bloggers, please credit the pose creator ~ they work hard and lately am seeing more and more blog posts that do not credit them with excuses “oh I forgot or not a big deal” but it is to those that work hard at creating them ~ tips to prevent that open up a notecard & make notes ~ please when someone asks you a question directly do not be rude or have an attitude ~ if they are asking you they must value your opinion ♥ now RL is screaming at me ♥

I’m Okay…

I'mOkay
Question do you ask your friends how they are or are you asked how you are ~ sometimes I get so caught up in blogging or taking pics that I forget to ask how each of my friends are doing ~ my circle of friends is small and try not to be one of those that has a million contacts yet barely speaks to any ~ we all need to be at some point we are valued as a friend or feel that we are not just this invisible person in Second Life ~just a little bit of kindness that starts with saying hello to someone goes a long way especially if you have not spoken to them in weeks or even months as anything after that am wondering why you would keep them on your friends list…now am sure you noticed those jeans and top am wearing ~ The Chita Halter top I have shown off before and truly love it with the huge hud of 42 different colors & patterns am wearing it with Girl Flame Jeans that also come with a hud of 10 different color flames ~ brand new at Sn@tch along with the hair Emmeline am also wearing ~ in case you forget there is fishing for an outfit that takes no  bait with the exception of using a 7d’s fishing pole ~ try to wander over there and check out all the new stuff ~ for me am going to spend my allotted 30 minutes that I give myself each day working/sorting inventory ~ the only way that I can keep it managleble ~

Most little girls grow up dreaming of being a princess with a gilded carriage to take them to meet their Prince ~ I say most as for me growing up girlie girl stuff was so not me ~ giggling I was a huge tomboy till I hit 5th grade when I finally saw boys in a different light ~ still was not 100% this girlie girl as I loved fishing, and outdoors stuff that most girls just thought it was too sweaty to do ~ wearing skirts, dresses were pure torture for me as even today am a true t-shirt and jeans female ~ walking around Backdrop City I did see the carriage and thought it was just perfect to show off these new items at Sn@tch ~ the hair “Emmeline, the sexy Chita halter top and silk Doxy mini skirt you can find all at Sn@tch ~ each have their own unique hud with such a variety of colors that you need to come to Sn@tch and try on the demos to decide ~

This is a closer look at that gorgeous soft hair, Emmeline and one of 7 Deadly s[K]ins Romina that is now at Mesh Body Addicts Fair with freckles &that innocent look you might be wanting to wear ~ I did add the glitter under eyeliner by Izzies, along with just a touch of lip gloss to show off those gorgeous lips ~ oh yes also those are my brows from Lurid that I am sad they no longer have their inworld store and went strictly to Marketplace ~ Rides & links will be below in credits ♥♥

Latex Baby…

LatexBaby

Are you a lover of latex and looking for a really good latex outfit ~ TO.KISKI has a really cute jumpsuit that you see me wearing at Designer Showcase this month ~ I really like how this one part jumpsuit is constructed ~ the bottom half is very sleek and body-hugging and the top with its unique style makes this a fave of mine ~ the designer/creator has several variations of this jumpsuit and not all are 100% latex, which gives you both worlds ~ what I also want to show you is a closeup of the necklace by Moondance Boutique & the sporty sunglasses by Haysuriza that will be at Designer Showcase too♥

LatexB1
Nails by Cazimi, Sunglasses by Haysuriza and Necklace by Moondance

One thing I have noticed is the various lens effects you can get by touching the lens from total dark all the way to clear ~ those nails are in various versions of plain and glitter with my fave shade of purple being one of the colors ~ the necklace Sienna by Moondance you will notice all the different ways to change up the gem colors, metal colors keeping it fresh and very trendy ~ Designer Showcase opens its doors tomorrow and each of you, when you go, will have such a great variety of Designers with their exclusive items that I must remind you to remember to try on DEMOS ~ am having so much fun opening the boxes♥♥

Reflecting

Reflection

Standing here with my head down just staring at the dry grass am in a moment of reflection ~ still a little aware that I am now 10 years old in here still amazes me ~ guess it shows you that Second Life truly is a place that is always changing ~ funny thinking when I first came into SL till now that I have moved several several times, changed jobs twice, retired, even was homeless for part of the time ~ well not out on the streets but couch surfing with some amazing friends, met some fantastic SL friends that still am friends with and have not one but two best friends along with an amazing partner and still I love logging on even if am alone as boredom is not in my SL vocabulary ~ ooh yes speaking of vocabulary with all the words not used in RL like TP or Rezzing just to mention a couple.  Woah that was more than a moment of reflecting and I gotta tell you one more thing before I rush off to explore the wilds of SL is The Pose Fair is still ongoing till the 31st and usually items are a little less expensive like this pose set “B-rad Series” by Image Essentials ~ now it is geared towards males and I have always suggested do not let that deter you from trying it ~ made up of 5 poses w/mirrors this is a great series for either gender ~ oooh love my safari outfit as this was a Rez Day pressie from one of my oldest SL friends ~ Rides to all will be below ~ thank you again for the great Rez Day wishes ♥♥ till next time will leave you with this quote ~

summer heat…

desert heat

ut oh somehow I took a wrong tp and ended up in an ancient Arabian community, which seeing those slave girls with their Master I know that need to leave asap…first I have to rub more suntan lotion on me as the sun is just doing a beatdown on my skin ~ bet I would be stoned for wearing this cute Romper by KiB Designs ~ as I rub more lotion on myself I can say this is super comfy, really cool material and gorgeous textures 5 unique ones to choose from ~ this romper Clarita by KiB Designs can be found at Designer Showcase till the 31st and that means you have little over 2 weeks left ~ take the rides below so you can wander around looking at all the gorgeous items this month’s designer have for you ~ even my stylish Cat sunglasses by Haysuriza is also available for Designer Showcase ~ so unless you need me for anything else I think its best I scram quickly…hugzz♥♥
