It's a Friday

It's not just any ordinary Friday, but a Friday where Belleza puts out their 50L skin for the FLF. I wasn't sure if it would be this Friday or the next because it's still August and not a new month. I always look forward to their offers and even if Moon no longer wear fair skin for long period, a 50L skin from Belleza to put on for photoshoots is totally worth it.

Moon and Carter are both wearing Belleza FLF Delaney skins and chanelling their inner country girl in Sn@tch Wednesday Doll Dress and Carter is wearing Sn@tch Mesh Tracy Sun Dress.

I have also completed my latest house. It's another modern home. Concrete. I'm calling it Serenity because of the plain neutral colours.

I still need to live in it for a few more days before I pack it off to my marketplace.

In the pink

I was boxing up tops when one of the blouses got me into a dilemma whether I should box it or let it because I still have great attachment for the style and so I put it on and got into a styling mode.... but you know, in the end, this is what came out of that mode:

No blouse.

Outfit: :::Sn@tch Mesh Tracy Sun Dress-All Colors (Small):::
Hair: *X*plosion Jules Hair (Duos) past Hair Fair 2013
skin: -Belleza- Teal Flash Skin past FLF
bangles: *YS&YS* TheDeck Anniversary Bangles old item
shoes: J's WesternBoots (Pink) old item
bag:  {.essences.} South American Bag N.03 old item

I went to the Cupcake sim to take the picture and here are some shots of the rainy area:

Moon's inventory is now less than 50K!

One Class Act

Nobody has to look bad on a low budget. And just because something is cheap, doesn't mean it's low quality. And just because you don't want to buy expensive stuffs doesn't mean you're not classy. I love searching for bargains. I can go on and on about affordable stuffs because I've been through the poor house and I know what it means to stretch the budget.

There is still time to get this Liv-Glam Heart attack dollarbie minidress at the 24 Event.

Outfit: [LG] K Collection Heart Attack Dress Gift
Hair: [monso] My Hair - Daisy/ Black Brown
Skin: *YS&YS* Molly Eyecat - TDRF EXCLUSIVE
Earrings: Pure Poison - Tiger Earrings - The 24 Dollarbie
Necklace: Jamman Jewels copper leaves necklace old hunt item
bracelets: Retro Bangles (6 sets) very old item
shoes and bag: {{BSD Design studio}} post modernism -zig zag and Back to school bag dollarbie (this is a group gift where you get a LM from their mainstore and it takes you to their zenshi store and you hunt for the item)

I was late getting to the Club tonight, but I did get to catch Mavenn and Griff Bamaisin perform. They were awesome as usual. They rock!

The best thing about being a partner in this club is that I don't have to go elsewhere to listen to rocking good music because lately my time on SL has been very busy.

I don't know why but when I see these dresses, I think pure.
Zaara is having a sale right now and of course I had to go see and I ended up buying these 2 dresses and her jewellery set.

outfit: Zaara : [Mesh] Aamani wrap dress *print-sunshine*
hair: Miamai_Sakura Blacks
jewellery: Zaara : Atiriya set *aquamarine*
lipstick tattoo: *Fishy Strawberry* Allure Makeup - Faded Lipstick Deep Red old item
eyeliner tattoo: -Belleza- Eyeliner 3 past FLF item
shoes: Maitreya Gold Shiki
pose: Purple Poses

outfit: Zaara : [Mesh] Chaitra chiffon dress *leaves*
hair: .b -smitten  - dark browns
jewellery: *YS&YS* Gold set TDR old item
lipstick tattoo: *Fishy Strawberry* Allure Makeup - Faded Lipstick Deep Red old item
eyeliner tattoo: -Belleza- Eyeliner 3 past FLF item
shoes: Maitreya Gold Shiki
pose: Purple Poses

It's always a good deal to buy things on sale, but the down side is, you won't be wearing the latest fashion, but that's not a priority for me. These dresses will still look good next year.... unless they make something better than mesh.

Exploring Secondlife Monday Meme

Strawberry Singh's Monday meme is about favorite places on the grid and I have a lot of those although since my first rez day with Avatar Carter back in 2007, a lot of these places have gone and I can't even remember their names. I am continually impress how generous people are to let others enter their sims and just hang out. I think nowadays it is a bit risky with griefers abound and it's just ashame nothing is as innocent as it used to be.

Meme Instructions: Share 1 to 5 of your favorite places on the grid. I feel like exploring and discovering new places. Share places you think everyone should visit and also tell us why they are your favorites. Don’t forget to leave a link to your post in the comments!

My #1 goto place has always been the Calas Galadhon sim chain since rezzing in SL. Unfortunately, it is no longer open although I read that it would open again on a smaller scale. I miss Armenelos with it's trademark white village on the hill and the underwater garden for my mermaid to go frolicking. You can see the picture of Armenelos on my flickr.

My #2 goto place would be Half Hitch, a sailing Island on the Blake Sea chain. I can rez my little boat here and then sail the Sea! Although I am not a good sailor and sailing term always confuses me, I still get on that little boat and just let the wind move the boat, slow or fast and wait till I crash, taking pics along the way:)

Next would be Solaria. It's such a compact Island and eventhough I've never been to the Mediterranean, I imagine this is how the quaint villages and little towns would look like. There is an underwater garden in Solaria so this is a good place for mermaids too.

Then comes La Perla- old Italy, another mediterranean town. I think part of their charm that attracts me is their colourful houses and buildings, their intimate street and rustic look. And of course, their trademark town on the hill. Who doesn't recognize La Perla?

This is a view of La Perla from the port, taken at dawn.

Imagine a bull run through the narrow streets eventhough that would be a Spanish event:)

#5 would be the Caledon sims. I can't really choose which sim I like the best. All those old buildings and landscaping are absolutely enchanting to my eyes. It's hard to take just one picture because there is so much to see. What I usually do when I am here is just enjoy the view or take a train ride around the sims till I crash.

And, #6 because #1 can't be visited at the moment, is the bayou sims of New Toulouse although I remembered they had more than 2 sims when I last visited. The landscaping is just awesome and I can hear Linda Ronstadt singing Blue Bayou. I can imagine eating jambalaya. I can also imagine the hot weather, not so different from where I come from.... mosquitoes, snakes...I should stop:)

There are shops and residentials on this sim so best not to enter any houses unless you know it's a shop. Which reminds me when I first rez in SL, I would do a lot of exploring and just enter anybody's houses because I had no idea anyone would be upset. I was clueless and still is sometimes.

It's been awhile since I visited all these sims and I enjoyed taking the pictures. I'm really glad I did this meme. I'll be putting the original pictures(4000x2100) and then some on my flickr later. Thank you, Strawberry!

A Princess walks in the Park

Everytime I look at all the wonderful shoes being created for slink feet, I am tempted to get them for Moon but today is not that day. I just boxed up most of her old shoes from way back 2009 till the present and I cringed at how I dot this avatar. The good news is, I cut back her inventory by almost 1k!

Anyway, if you like dressing up your avatar as a princess as I do sometimes, every Sunday at the White Armory, you can find a gown to add to your princess collection. You will have to be in the group and happily, the group is free to join.

Outfit: **TWA**Group Gift-Lady Regent Gown Set
hair: Magika [01] Give old item
eyes: []::Tuli::[]  FREE  Gem eyes Emerald old item
make-up: Kyoot Makeup - Cateyes I - Pack 1 (Basic Blacks) old item
skin: [PF] Harley <Peach> - Arcade 05 last arcade
jewellery: Lazuri Maysoon Emerald Earrings + Necklace old item

here's a close-up:

A tiara would complete the princess look, but somehow, it doesn't feel good to me unless I have her with elven ears.

Today I went for Group gifts and dollarbies

I have not dismantled the Villa yet and it was a good spot to take pictures of my 2 favorite avatars in their pretty outfits.

Girl talk

The loggia of  the villa seemed like a good place to have a girl talk. Even the cats seemed to think so:)
Miel has released this Peasant Dress for FLF and of course I had to grab it before the price goes up. I tried the demo at the marketplace and then tped to the Mainstore to get it although it's also on the marketplace for 50L at the moment.
It comes with a hud with 12 different colours.

Moon is wearing Belleza Jade skin from past FLF with Purple Poses from the Black Fair.

My Italian Villa is finally done. Sometimes, after I finish building, I like to decorate the house, see how it feels like and how the furnitures fit inside the house. Sometimes I mix and match furniture from different era to get the feel of continuance.
I've pixlred my pictures to make it look artistic:)

This is my Classica Allegra Italian Villa.

Furnishings are from Depoz and Bazaar.
Plants are from Hearts Garden. The garden set by the pool is from the Dreamer's Collection which I bought from the marketplace.

From the house to the candy shop

It's just too difficult to come up with a title but I was thinking that these outfits I bought for Carter and Moon are just that, casual wears that suits perfectly at home and to the corner store or anywhere else.
on Carter:
hair: Clawtooth: Say Yes (Captivating Brunettes Pack) at Collabor88 Aug
skin: -Glam Affair - Katya - Jamaica 07 at Collabor88 Aug
outfit: .::Vivid::. Vestige Outfit 75L at the Pure Sales Room
shoes: ::7Style:: -Mid- sneakers black 55L at Fi*Friday

on Moon:

skin: -Glam Affair - Katya - Jamaica 03
outfit: .::Vivid::. Elixir Outfit 75L at the Pure Sales Room
shoes: Maitreya Shiki (I will never take off these wedges if I can help it:p)

and here is the almost close up of the Katya skin:
All poses are from Purple Poses.

Another meme: 42 Secondlife Groups Challenge

Meme Instructions: Answer the following questions about groups and share some of your favs with us. Don’t forget to leave your link in the comments!
  1. Have you reached the 42 group limit? Unfortunately, yes. Maybe Linden Lab should just make it 100.
  2. Do you do a lot of group hopping to keep up with all the groups you want to stay a part of? Again, unfortunately, yes.
  3. What makes you want to join a group? Mostly for my own selfish reason, I want the free group gifts that comes along with being in the group. I still have a couple of groups that are no longer active in SL like Curio and Ivalde. I guess it's just sentimentality on my part.
  4. A lot of store VIP groups have a group fee which you have to pay to join. How do you feel about paying group fees? I don't like that I have to pay to be in a group, but if they promise regular freebies, I can live with that. I did join a paying group recently because they were having a sale and members were getting discounts during the sale. I calculated that the discount made up for having to pay too much to be in the group.
Name a few groups that you are a part of that you feel everyone should look into joining and share your reasons behind that.  
a.~BAZAR~ Quality homes and furniture I like the clean, simple designs and low land impact of her furnitures and I want to know when she has new furnitures. 
b. Virtual Kennel Club I have a VKC bloodhound and although this group is quite chatty and I don't join the chats, it is also a wealth of information about the VKC pets. 
c. The White Armory Every week there is a free gown available for it's member and who doesn't love dressing up in period costumes? 
Happily, these groups are free to join although I think you have to have a VKC pet to join their group.

I haven't changed Moon's outfit in a couple of days. She is wearing drift from past TDR fusion. Moon and her doberman are posing infront of the almost completed Italian Villa.

Just relax

I am on a mission to shop for Carter. I've been itching to play with the shape sliders again and putting shapes on the marketplace again but Moon's inventory is already too heavy to add another 'build' category in it and I've been thinking of passing the 'job' to Carter.
It makes me giggle because men always say that women have a million alts and although I don't deny it because women are natural hoarders, I see no wrong in having multiple alts as long as it is not used negatively.
I use my alt when I want to be alone and I don't add friends on my alt.
Somehow, with Carter, I tend to have her wear very casual laidback outfits. The kind of outfits my elder daughter would wear. It will be a challenge to make mature shapes with her. Well, it is still a plan. Right now I am shopping for affordable skins. And clothes. And hair. And shoes.... the list is endless.

Skin: Essences - Sash 01 ~ light rose ~ collarbor88 August
hair: [monso] My Hair - Daisy/ Black Brown collarbor88 August
top: Apple May Designs - Say It! Tops - Jersey 25L sale AMD
pants: Apple May Designs - Female Cargo Capri's - Black 25L sale AMD
sneakers: ::7Style:: -Mid- sneakers black fi*fridays
jewelleries: *MM* very old stuffs not available anymore
nails: *Sexy Mamas* Manicure - Sculpted Prim Nails
pose: Purple Poses

Shopping is always fun.

Linger Liv Glam Secret Wednesday

I always look forward to Liv Glam's Secret Wednesday because it's a 49L special and one of this week's offer is Linger from the K-collection. I notice that K-collection is usually more for the younger set and although in RL I am not, I love to dress my avatar young. After all, in SL, an avatar can be forever young while you're only young once in RL:)

My 'italian' villa is progressing along well. Probably it will be completed by next week.

The little white dress

For a long time, I've always went back to wearing Elate Felicity in ice dress because I love how Moon looks wearing the layered dress. Now with Cynful latest The 'Shimmy' Dress in grey, which looks similar to the Felicity dress, I will be boxing up the dress. So far, I've boxed up almost all the items from the jacket folder. Boxing is not a fast process:(

dress: [Cynful] The 'Shimmy' Dress - Grey [C88]
hair: [monso] My Hair - Daisy/ Black Brown (C88)
earrings: (Kunglers Extra) Ipomoea - silver/black
shoe: Maitreya shiki in nude
pose: Purple Pose(The Black Fair)

I'm posing Moon in the loggia of the house I'm building which I hope will have some Italian influence. Otherwise, the loggia will be called a verandah:p
I also shortened Moon by 2 both in height and legs. There doesn't seemed to be much difference.

hunting for today's cheapies

I went looking for freebies today. After browsing the fashion blogs, I went to the Black Fair to get some poses from Purple Poses. It's been a while since I bought poses and it was time for an update.

I then tried getting the stuffs I had demoed and from this month's Collarbor88 but it was so laggy, my linden balance kept on reverting to -1L and I had to get my other avatar to pay Moon 1L to get it back to normal.

Then after I accidentally bought the wrong product, I knew I had to get out before it happen again. So that means another day for shopping those stuffs.

I love low-rise flared jeans and crop tops so this hunt item was a must for me.

outfit: Alexa outfit from Pins & Needles for the Colours of Summer Hunt
hair: !lamb. Bernice - Loveless Pack from this month's collarbor88
glasses: [Steinwerk] - Fusion Sunglasses
bag: [Armidi Gisaci] Porta Corsico Bag - Brown
jewelleries: zaara
shoes: Maitreya shiki(I'd never let Moon leave home without this if I can)

skin: Cecilia Al Vulo freebie at the black Fair

skin: Tanita Wow skin dollarbie at the Black Fair

A very short meme about inventory

I thought I'd do another meme challenge by Strawberry Singh. This one is short:)
Meme Instructions: Copy and paste the questions and answers below, delete my answers and input your own. Don’t forget to leave a comment with your link so I can come by and read it!
  1. What is your current inventory number? – 52,767
  2. If you had to delete your whole inventory and could only keep one thing, what would it be? – Moon's shape. I don't think I can recreate it exactly the same again.
  3. What is the last thing you purchased? – Sn@tch Carolina tie-dye dress
  4. Which item do you wear most often? – The moles and blush. I always forget to take them off when I'm demoing skins.
  5. When you search for the word penis, how many items pop up? 3; a couple of freebie penis I had forgotten I had (really) and a penis fountain a friend gave me:p
Moon is wearing the latest Fameshed offering from Baiastice Crop Spaghetti Top and Denimblack Tulle skirt and past Fameshed Emery Mesh denim Jacket Hollywood. Her boots are J's Ankle Boots and I use *GF* Boots alpha instead of the old invisible prim. Her hair is from Magika Wait and her ladybird necklace is from MG.

I also demoed Glam Affair Katya and although I like it, I don't think I'll change Moon's skin for a while because I still love this Anais skin on her.

I finally had some time to shop and take pictures of the dresses I bought at the Sn@tch sale this weekend.

Between building

One of my favorite pastimes is browsing the Marketplace and collecting freebies.
I thought I had bought the car with poses at the Glitterati closing sale but it seemed I had not so it was up to the Marketplace. I wanted some new vehicle when I do the ad for my latest townhouse. I found this cute little city car for 1L and the red and white striped car and the yellow bike for free.

My townhouse is taking more time than I expected. At first, I didn't plan on making a townhouse. I wanted to do another classical mansion-type house which I had seen in the internet but as I built, I kept on deleting and then when I decided to add a garage, it turned into another townhouse. Right now, only part of the basement and 1st floor is in progress.

I guess the truth is, I am much a city girl at heart and eventhough I love a single house with lots of land and trees around it, the city holds my interest.

fameshed in august

2 styles I couldn't resist for this months's Fameshed.

top and skirt: Baiastice

top and skirt: Mutresse
This is a really good buy because it has a texture changing hud with so many possibilities and top, skirt and sleeves come in different parts. Moon is not wearing the sleeves in this picture.
