Monday Meme: Autumn Challenge

It's Monday Meme Challenge from Miss Berry again :)

1. Is autumn your favorite season? Why or why not? Spring is my favorite season. The colours are bright and cheerful and the weather, if I remember, is drier. Autumn comes a close second though. The colours are warmer but I don't like putting on too many pieces of clothings. Which makes Winter the worst I guess:)

2. Do you call it Autumn or Fall? Where I am from, we learned British English but when I went to study in the US, it was American English. So both works for me.

3. What kind of weather does your area get during this season? Malaysian weather is quite finicky and it hasn't rained in a week so it has been very hot and suddenly it's raining right now! It's 29C/84.2F tonight. 

4. Which color do you always associate with autumn? Rust

5. Which Autumn themed sim is your favorite at the moment? It has to be the Calas Galadhon sims. I took the picture at the Mirromere sim over looking my favorite Armenelos sim.

Cat lover

Today Moon is the Cat Princess.

I started with the leopard print dress and the ankle boots. I always think boots are sexy whether they're high heels or flats, and if I could, I'd wear them all the time. The Mimosa leather dress is actually a simple frock but designer Venus Hamelin has made it fun and flirty. There are 5 different prints to choose from and although I adore the polka dot, I wanted something fierce and leopards are fierce, right? Best of all, the dress is only 35L each. That is such a bargain, you can grab them all. Then the London Heels from Hollyhood were the perfect fit for the dress.

The hair was fun.... with the tiara. And a cat princess has to lounge around and Eternal Dreams Pose has just the pose I wanted.

All I wanna do

Cycle 21 of the Cosmopolitan Sale Room Event starts today Sept29 until Oct12. CSR has moved to the middle of the Slebrity sim and LM has changed.

After blogging for R&B in round 20, I was excited to find out what is in store this time and this minidress did not disappoint me. It's simple yet classy and when I paired it up with boots, it looks sexy. Today I decided to make Moon a blonde and then tped her to B&B to listen to some music.

FYI, from Pippi Moonite's notecard, the owner of R&B, she wrote that R&B stands for  Rò and Bunì, in Italian, and are the names which were traditionally named for the oxen pulling the plow. Rò was always at the righ side, Bunì always at the left.

minidress: R&B - Ro' e Buni' - veztitino autunnale 01@ Cosmopolitan Sale Room
boots: BAX Prestige Boots Black Suede

The next offering from Miss Moonite is this outfit which only grew on me after I had put it on Moon. I'm not a fan of blouson style dresses coz it just hides the figure but when Moon wore this, I can see the potential... like going clubbing! The roses can be detached if you don't want to be too romantic.
I didn't want to overdo it in the accessory department so it was just a pair of dangling earrings and a gold patterned handbag for Moon's night out. The black shoes and jacket comes with the ensemble.

Winter Blush

This week's group gift gown from the White Armory is a beautiful silver laced ice-blue gown called Blush of Winter.
And I'm playing around with Moon's look. I had Snow White in mind. Lips as red as blood, skin as white as snow. Hair as black as night.

I started the look with Moon in black curly hair and that reminded me of fantasy but I resisted putting on elf's ears.

Moon looks sad.

Moon is wearing:
skin: Glam Affair - Candy skin - America 09
hair: ~Tableau Vivant~ Campbell hair - Winter
eyes: pc eyes - moon - espresso
headpiece: LaGyo_Aura headpiece gold

A high ponytail and fairer skin changed the look. She looks snooty.

Moon is wearing:
skin: -Belleza- Leila Arcade 3 RARE
hair: TRUTH HAIR Rocky -  variety ponytail high
eyes: pc eyes classic - warm light
jewellery: Zaara : Atiriya set *aquamarine*

That little pooch in the bag

Should we thank Paris Hilton for setting the trend of accessorizing her little dog in a bag? Well, now you can have a little chihuaha in a bag for free when you land at Tuty's.

The bag and dog come with a holding ao and a colour hud for the bag. It really is a great freebie and Princess the Chihuaha is smiling, so she must be happy in that bag, right?

Can you spot the jealous black cat in the background?

It's Berry's Birthday Challenge Meme

Happy Birthday Strawberry Singh.

Sing to the tune of the oldie song It's my Party, not Jessie J's new song:)

Meme instructions: I know a lot of people may not be comfortable sharing their real life birthdays so you can pick and choose from a few options today. Whatever you guys decide to do, I would love it if you shared it in the comments and got us all involved.

1. When is your birthday? July 16

2. Pick one person who shares your birthday and share what you know about them. Will Ferrel. He is an actor/comedian.

3. List one notable event that took place on your birthday. According to WIKI Apollo 11 blasted off from Cape Kennedy, FL, and began the first manned mission to land on the moon. This is probably why I am so into sci-fi!

4. Tell us about a holiday that falls on your birthday.  I think they forgot that July 16 exist.

A Black Tie affair

This will be my first post for Cosmopolitan Sales Room.
I'm very excited and honoured to be able to do this and I would like to thank Corina Wonder for giving me this opportunity and for trusting me. I will also try my best not to disappoint the designers who have worked hard on their creations and still set them at such low price(70L) during these 2 week event. I am all for not getting us bankrupt :)

I have never heard of ModaMia before and I have no idea why. This gown is so elegant and graceful(flexi prims to soften the mesh) and the big ribbon at the back makes it so feminine. Moon is ready to go somewhere formal.

There are four colours to choose from-black, blue, teal and red and they all comes with matching shoes from Heart & Soul. And to top it off, it comes with matching jewellery sets but I chose to let Moon wear Donna Flora's set in honour of her memory.

Better hurry, this gown makes a great collection to your formal wear wardrobe(folder). This round will be over in a week.

on Moon:
hair: >TRUTH< Eden -  black & whites
skin: *League* Taylor Skins Suntan Blonde -Silverlining- Cleavage
jewellery earrings&necklace: (DF) BODZA jewels
jewellery bracelet: DM Pearl Drops
gown&shoes: ModaMia/H&S Poised Elegance Vintage Gown Black (now @ Cosmopolitan Sales Room)

Retail Therapy for the broken

It feels good to shop when you're down.

Mimikri has a new creation called Babe and No Future. I chose No Future. Although the name is appropriate for today's blog, I plaid and red have always been favourites.

on Moon:
hair: [Shag] - Bombshell - Dark browns
skin: *Glance Skins - Anais - August - SKIN PACK
jewellery: : Amorous : Simplicity
minidress: Mimikri - No Future Tartan Dress red
shrug: Mimikri - No Future Shrug black
bag: AZOURY - Heima Purse (Caramel) (at the L'accessoires)
boots: N-core EUPHORIA "Noir Intense"

The shrug comes with buttons on the sleeves too:

Dressing up my avatar fills up my time and takes some of the pain away.

Clubwear and GG

Continuing Carter's journey on looking good and still keeping within my narcissistic monthly budget, I tped Carter to the Cosmopolitan Sales Room and bought the Liv-Glam dress I have been eyeing.
Hair: [monso] My Hair - Daisy/ Black Brown
Skin: Essences ~ Amaterasu ~ lait - brunette (04)
Jewellery: [ glow ] studio Dindi Set TDR old item
Dress: [LG] Boutique-[Summer 13] Counting Stars Hud 1 70L
Clutch: PICHI - CHANDRA KnuckleClutch [black] at this week's Acid Lily Gallery 50L
leggings: ESCAPE Lace Leggings -ribbon-(ancient! no longer available)
Shoes: {{BSD Design Studio}}less is more -Grey croco (original mesh )
pose: Purple Poses Savannah 6

Last, I tped Carter to Liv-Glam to get the latest GG.
outfit: [LG] Boutique-[ FALL-13] Girls on Film Gift

And before I forget, N-core has a really pretty and girly groupgift out called N-core Group Gift- CUORE "Pink Floral" (Mesh). The group used to be free but now it's 50L to join.
I didn't edit the picture. The hud wasn't their latest version, but it was still easy to use and Moon was using her regular Glance skin and the difference in skin shades wasn't very discernable. It made me demo their other shoes and I'm dreading the day I bust my budget on their shoes!

Fantasy in space(Monday meme)

This week's meme challenge from Strawberry Singh is about surrealism and having a platform like SL and being able to interact in it is already surreal. Sometimes I think it's funny that I prefer to have a human avatar rather than any other mythical being but occasionally, I love turning my avatar into a mermaid or a fairy or an elf and even a cyborg. I especially love sci-fi.  What would be surreal to me is to have a mermaid in space. She would have to have wings. Fairy wings of course. 

Meme instructions: Create an image in Second Life that has a surreal feel to you. Don’t forget to share your link in the comments and add your picture to the Blog Memes flickr group.

Here is my fantasy in space:

Moon is wearing all old items except the Belleza skin from this month's Arcade Gatcha.

hair: [LeLutka]-POCAHONTAS hair/Naturals
elven ears: *~*Illusions*~* High Elf Ears
wings: (V) Vaengi: Ragged Fairy Wings, Natural, 2.6
jewellery: *~*Elessia Set
mermaid outfit: Boudoir Sea Dragon Mermaid

About the Music

Some days in SL, all I want to do is listen to music and cam around taking pictures. And this morning is one of those days.

It has been awhile since I went music hopping because I spent most of my time up on the sky platform building or just staring at the prim as if it could inspire me, but this morning I told myself it was time to go forth and listen to other than those who sang at Chip's One Night Stand.

And so, a little after 6pm, I tped Moon to The Pier to listen to DennyMac. He plays the acoustic guitar and although Chip Takacs has spoilt me with his electric guitar, it was still pleasant to listen to the sweet lulling guitar. I cammed a lot to get some pictures while avatar Moon danced obliviously but only 2 pleases my eyes.
I have always loved pictures of lighthouses.

This music venue is really beautiful and would be a great backdrop for photo shoots:)

Then half way through the show, I found out that my friend VincentSantino was doing a show the next hour so I tped Moon over:
Vinny's one of those old rockers. He's gonna kill me for saying that:p

Then right after his show I tped Moon over to listen to Harry Frychester because he has an awesome voice and he's funny too. I called my daughter over to listen to him and at first she thought he was Michael Buble.
I didn't take many pictures. The sim was packed and laggy and I didn't want to crash.

3 hours of shows is my limit. I logged out and turn on the radio:)
