Bad to the Bone

Last year I had the amazing opportunity to blog for a group raising funds to help pitbulls that needed rescuing. When I was asked to do it again, I had to…it’s such an awesome cause that is worth supporting. I also have the wonderful treat of again having help from Spikedwithfashion. The perks of having a very photogenic fiance. For all his info, and his take on the photo, please visit his blog in the link.

Rally to Rescue is once again giving us a chance to help make the difference in the lives of animals in need of rescue. The event runs from March 1-20 and has 35 shops participating with 100% of all sales being donated.

I got you babe

They say our love won’t pay the rent
Before it’s earned, our money’s all been spent
I guess that’s so, we don’t have a plot
But at least I’m sure of all the things we got

It’s been a while since I’ve blogged here, we’ll just say life seems to take its own path when you think you have it figured out. Truth be told, I’d likely still be procrastinating about a blog post were it not for the fact someone very special decided to get into blogging, and asked me to help. So before I get into much more, check out Spike’s new blog here at Spikedwithfashion. He’ll be covering mens fashion in SL, and I can’t wait to see how his blog grows!

First, I want to say how sad I am that this will be the only joint blog of ours with Swag Bag items in it. While I understand the stresses of getting mens items for a monthly subscription, it was very disheartening to hear its run its course. As an avid shopper, this is a plea to all mens designers out there, PLEASE start making more available. There is the want, there is the market….the men of Second Life deserve great things too.

Second, I have learned today not to toss out old gacha you think you will never use…case in point, boxing gear….by the way if anyone needs backpacks or sports tops, let me know.

Now, all those fun things about me have changed, and I know I need to do an update, but here’s the quick rundown… Vista Bento hands, Catwa Catya Bento head, Maitreya Lara body, Dee Talez skin because ❤

Spike’s items are here

What I’m wearing:

Hair: Truth VIP February gift (get in that group!!)

Outfit: Khoi + Rep epiphany gacha @ Represent

Socks: Izzie’s tube socks

Shoes: Reign/Flite Tayler’s

My Fairytale

30268157711_24df4c20fb_b

Now, you’re all looking at the picture and thinking this is going to be a mushy romantic post…and that might make a perfectly typical fairytale… but that wouldn’t be mine.

So let’s start it off…..

“Once upon a time there was a shopaholic girl who had an Oasis away from the uglies and drama that can sometimes be found in our pixel world.There were gachas, and shoes, blueberry booty’s and cupcakes….

It wasn’t all shopping with the girl, in an effort to bring beauty to the world, she started a blog. It was filled with things to enhance anyones life, and she was so proud of her efforts. Of course, the evils of the world were not willing to let the pretty lass spread such beauty and threw in challenges of things like a wicked thing called RL, dumb boys pretending to be men, they even stole her muse for a time. She battled it all, even took up a quest to enter the fabled halls of the famed Blueberry, proclaiming she would be back leading the world to beauty once more….

And then, the greatest challenge of all….

a full sim.

Events were missed, days blurred in the race against tier running out… she even wore the same shorts and tank top for 3 days!

Just as things were at their darkest, and the girl was struggling with the stress, the prims, the sheer size of it all…. a bright light appeared, it was Epiphany. In all its glowing wonderousness, the gacha, the cute, the shoes, the zombicorns, that renowned Blueberry booty with all sorts of magical Halloween delights.

She dusted off her trusty hud, donned her cloak of invisibility and with a prayer to the great power of Orryx, made it into the promised land.

Returning to her Oasis, she was swept into the arms of her King to enjoy a night of celebration.

And the girl was once again able to tell the world of wondrous things.

The End”

Ok, so I am still suffering with the effects of moving from a half sim to a whole (new) sim and having it open in 5 days. And I was feeling terribly guilty for saying I’m back to blogging and then vanish again….so a creative story seemed best.

The picture was taken in the almost finished Kawaiiland at the Oasis. There is a full sim to come explore and enjoy…so please do.

And now for the details

What I’m wearing :

Hair: Truth Sunday Hair ~ Epiphany

Shirt: Truth Sunday Sweater ~ Epiphany (off sim lm)

Panties: Truth Pig Undies ~ Epiphany

Eyes: [Buzz] Chromatic Eyes ~ Epiphany

Head: Catwa Amilie Exclisive

There might be a lil dust on the blog?

29478000094_2438e13f7c_b

There might be a little dust on the bottle
But don’t let it fool ya about what’s inside
There might be a little dust on the bottle
It’s one of those things that gets sweeter with time

It’s been a while… again. My pixel life has a way of keeping me busy. It’s not that I haven’t wanted to blog, it’s more of a physics thing. You know an object in motion stays in motion, and object at rest stays at rest. (look at that a fashion blog with educational value! Newton’s first law of motion just in case you were wondering)

What prompted a restart of the blog posts? A few things…. my little corner of SL seems to be in that happy grove. I’ve gotten my muse back, and am feeling creative again (my sim has noticed that creativity) and there was this little mention of a certain designer looking for bloggers….how could I resist that temptation?

Blueberry, is by far one of my favorite designers. I don’t think there are many on the grid who haven’t heard of her “blueberry booty” and the way it transforms a nice booty into this amazing work of art (I know I’ve commented a few times about it in the past). The fit of her clothing is amazing. While I don’t have a slink body to say first hand it fits all the popular mesh bodies perfectly, I haven’t had an issue with either Belleza or Maitreya. The top I am wearing has become one of my favorites for that casual, comfy side of SL. I’ve paired it with shorts today, but it goes nicely with skirts, a few jeans, and a few bottoms from other designers as well (I know long tops are sometimes an issue when matching up)

You may also notice I look a lil different…. you can thank that bestie of mine for that.  After the Belleza update, I promised I would give the body another try…..I only wear Maitreya now when I really want to wear that outfit. The Belleza Isis has such nice curves to it, and that hud! If you haven’t tried it out yet.. go try Belleza….this is coming from a die hard Maitreya girl.

Still with me? Good.

When you gonna call
Don’t leave me brokenhearted
I’ve been waiting up
Let’s finish what we started, oh oh
I can’t seem to let you go

Ever have that one person that you wait for… and wait for…and wait for……?

Granted, most of it is my personality of not wanting to be like I’m a bother so I don’t get in there face and say ” A lil attention here please!” Still when you have a cute girl waiting….. you really need to smarten up before the cute girl does 😉

For now, retail therapy…. including trips to Migica (50% off summer sale!!!!)  N21, Tres Chic, and Shiny Shabby.

“Something like a strong wind is coming over me
It’s got a hold of me, yeah
Thinking and doing things I shouldn’t be
I really shouldn’t be
Give it one more call
It’s one more “whatcha doin right now?”
It’s one more trip to my side of town and you walk right in
One more here we go again”

Rally to Rescue is in full swing now, and time for a few more goodies you can get for great deals, and do something good for those sweet pitbulls that need your help. I’m very pleased to see some of those big names in SL fashion helping out with the cause, and really happy to tell you about their items!

Blueberry has spoiled us with the very sexy Sabina dress, in a special fatpack….and it’s $400L. but before you stop reading now and tp over there just wait. Truth is also supporting Rally to Rescue with the Opal hair for only $200L (fatpack $500L). I am also really happy to be able to show off the Industrial Loft skybox from Unkindness (I’ve had a chance to blog their items a few times, and have always loved their things)

Anyhow… you have a few more days to get your items, and a few more days to go hang out at the Ghost Bully’s MC World and enjoy the events there… so … get shopping!!

You Just slip out the back, Jack
Make a new plan, Stan
You don’t need to be coy, Roy
Just get yourself free
Hop on the bus, Gus
You don’t need to discuss much
Just drop off the key, Lee
And get yourself free

I’ve been enjoying a bit of freedom lately in my virtual world, and it’s been fun. Yes, it has meant less blog posts, but maybe  that whole quality over quantity thing is something to be listened to.

The Instruments started on the 18th, and one of my favorite designers, Petite Morte, is there with another awesome boho chic outfit. 7 different tops and jeans to choose from.

The fit is amazing and you have options of slink high or medium for the legs (yes, they work fine with maitreya too)

I’m also showing off my latest gacha addiction haul… Zerkalo has a new autumn gacha at Shiny Shabby, and everything you see in the picture are items you can win. I just need to find a perfect spot for it now…

What I’m wearing:

Petite Mort- Busted jeans dirty bleach @ The Instruments

Endless summer nights

https://www.flickr.com/photos/130666158@N03/21143476285/in/dateposted-public/

It is technically STILL summer. I know pumpkin everything has invaded our world, but I am hanging onto that last little sliver of warm summer sun. That and I’ve been feeding my sl addiction of gacha since the Arcade is on once again….thankfully I got it my fix in only 3 trips, and should be safe till the next cute thing…

I did get the rare house from Scarlet Creative, and decided even if it doesn’t quite “go” with a beach sim, that it would be my new house…and that I kinda wanted to show it off (well, you get to see a wall and the floor at least) so the pics this time are in my home.

Moeko has designed this cute steampunk lolita dress with a shirt and stockings to go with it. I’ve taken pics to show you with and without the top, as personally, I love to show off those shoulders. And her matching shoes are so cute!

My hair is from Besoms lucky board, gotta love free hair!

And last but not least… my nails!! This is the last set of the three  that is available at Vintage & cool. I am still going to say Dark Passions has the best nails out there. Absolutely love hers ❤

Me, you and a dog named Boo

Me, you and a dog named Boo

You find yourself in the strangest of places when you let a dog lead….

Yes I am still recovering from my gacha high…the amount of things I can blog, and the awesomeness of it all is still overwhelming. And I know you’re going to think this is biased since I am blogging for the event…but honestly, I haven’t found anything in the machines here that I wouldn’t try at least once….there are definitely those I would be pulling 20 times to get the Seed of Inspiration.

You have heard about that right?  Well just in case you haven’t…. when you play a machine 20 times, you are given a wonderful, exclusive,  item from that creator. After the garden closes, no one will be able to get it again. And yes, they are worth it.

I was going to do a cutesy post filled with all the kawaii type things, and then I noticed this drive in set from unKindness. It is amazing. The details, the textures…it’s just … let’s just say this set NEEDS to be put in a rp/photo sim so that people (who don’t have space for it) can enjoy it.

So, I compromised a bit… kawaii girl lost in the wrong part of town, with her little dog

My cute hair is a new release from Head Desk, and available in all sorts of awesome colors. The dress and accessories are all from the Gacha Garden (yes, you will need more lindens)

Remeber, the Gacha Garden opens Aug 1…that’s tomorrow!

My addiction

“like cocaine, heroin, alcohol, vicadin”

I will admit, I am writing this post still consumed by this euphoric high of a gacha overdose. So if by chance I start rambling, you know why.

Today at noon The Gacha Garden allowed its bloggers access to the sim….

That is when it all started.

The OMG’s, the slight hyperventilation as I began to realize there were boxes there that I could click on and they GAVE me stuff!!

Ok when I was 2 we went to the Bear Creek Park for some city celelbration (can’t remember was 2) It was however MY birthday, and being 2 and of course me was highly impressed that the entire city came to my birthday (cake AND balloons) and Rooty Root Bear showed up he gave me a teddy, and started my life long love of root beer.

We will now fast forward a “few” years….

My birthday is tomorrow….and because I am still me..this is totally like the BEST present EVER in second life.

(yep, still gonna stick with the it’s for me thing… )

So where do I start? (I am actually writing this because every time I look at my sl screen it produces another”OMG there’s that too!!”)

Wow…that was so much stuff… and I decided..which was super hard…but I spent the last bit organizing some of the amazing furniture that is being offered into one of the free cottages at the Oasis. (yay for owning a spot, and yes.. I will even leave it up if you’d like to go see it for yourself) I don’t even know where to start! I love the fact that while you’ll see quite a few designers pieces, it all flows rather nicely in the room.  The guitar from Zerako is so nicely detailed, as is the table from Miamai The fun thing that I absolutely LOVE tho are the clothes from Sallie x Body Language…mostly because that is a so me thing. There’s always something that I just left on the floor.

Honestly, the designers for this event did a fantastic job, and I really can’t wait for the event to open

Hope you enjoy your sneak peek!
