Waiting Game

Newness abounds at both Shiny Shabby & N21! It’s not often I shop and immediately blog something, but the stars aligned with this one (artist inspiration helps). RK Poses has a single female set for sale at the former, along with a few couples poses and single male; very much adoring the quality here. AND.. over at N21, an event that took mucho money from me this round, Fashionably Dead has these perfect knit dresses for sale. I had to grab two.

So It Goes

soitgoes600

I used to love when my parents lived downtown. For a few years, they lived on the 12th floor of an old apartment building, and given Phoenix isn’t terribly tall, you could see for miles and miles. During the day, it was noisy, with people bustling to work or running to lunch. But at night, the city gets so quiet when you’re not near all the sports/concert arenas. SL’s balconies might be without the noise, but I like to think the effect is similiar. Or I just love to spy. #creeper

Speaking of SL-ing, I’m a bit late, but it’s not yet a new Monday, so I’m still on time enough for this week’s Monday Meme from Berry!

1. Have you ever owned a sim in Second Life? – Not yet.
2. Have you ever created content in Second Life? – Yes, houses! Hoping to switch to mesh this year, and continue. We’ll see!
3. Have you ever driven a vehicle in Second Life? – I wouldn’t for a long time because I’d lag and run into things. But have since I got a better computer in 2011, and I run into less things now?
4. Have you ever gone sky diving in Second Life? – Yes, back in my first few months in 2007. I befriended a girl who worked at a club, and her boss had an island. It was SUPER COOL… back then. >.>
5. Have you ever played a sport in Second Life? – No
6. Have you ever gone clubbing in Second Life? – Yes, but not for a few years. Once I got involved in RP, I haven’t regularly been anywhere else.
7. Have you ever fangirled/fanboyed someone in Second Life? – Yes, anytime I see a Linden!
8. Have you ever taken a picture of your avatar in water in Second Life? – Too many times.
9. Have you ever taken a picture of a sunset in Second Life? – Yes, moreso after I got that newer computer and could actually see the water glistening. Prior, my settings were all on Low, and everything just looks awful on Low.
10. Have you ever taken a nude picture of your avatar in Second Life? – Yes… too many/not enough times?
11. Have you ever dated in Second Life? – Yes. One went into RL and now we live together. Huzzah!
12. Have you ever had or attended a wedding in Second Life? – I’ve attended both SL and RP weddings, but never had my own and don’t really plan to have one.
13. Have you ever drank, smoked or taken drugs in Second Life? – Only in roleplay.
14. Have you ever engaged in sexual activity in Second Life? – Who, meee? Mebbe. (Yes)
15. Have you ever been to Bukkake Bliss in Second Life? – Yes, back in the day. Is that still around? Crazy!

Fashionably Late

worn01

We can file this under the better late than never category, because even though much of this came out a few months ago at Collabor88, I still wear damn near all of it regularly! Especially these pants from Fashionably Dead. While I have been able to find beat up jeans that reach the floor, I do love the boyfriend cut, and the baggy bunching around the belt is such a nice touch! This camisole as well from ISON is just the right length to go with the slew of high waist pants and shorts I’ve been buying, beautifully draped. Thankfully better late than never means all pictured now available at their respective mainstores!

Skin: League – Erin (Sunkiss)
Eyes: Insufferable Dastard – Shimmer Eyes
Hair: Tableau Vivant – Springer Hair (Summer)
Top: ISON – Silk Camisole (Eggshell)
Pants: Fashionably Dead – Beat Up Jeans (Blue)
Shoes: Reign – Bow Peeps (Camel)
Feet: Slink – Womens High Barefeet (Rigged)
Hands: Slink – Mesh Hands (Relaxed)
Makeup: Maxi Gossamer – Groomed Eyelashes, Filthy – Lashes 1
Jewelry: Maxi Gossamer – Baroque Teardrop necklace, Yummy – Karina Glasses (Black)
Pose: Double Take – Say It To My Face, (second pose uncredited – wrote it down, & lost the paper! If you recognize this, please leave a comment, thank you!)

Game Day

gameday

The time has finally come for the World Cup again, and the day is here when USA begins their time in Brazil. So far, it’s been five days of Heaven for me, with game after game after game everyday… can’t all days be like this? Watching my personal favorites (outside of my own country), Germany, show off exactly why they are the best has already made my day. And tonight, we’ll see how far USA have come with a beloved German at the helm. I could go on and on, but let’s keep this short; Iran v Nigeria is on.

One of my favorite things I picked up from this round of Collabor88 has been these shorts from Maitreya. Often shorts don’t fit well with my shape’s hips + thigh combo, but these work perfectly! I’ve barely taken them off since the first! I’m also in love with these new cute shoes from Reign, reminding me of a pair I have sitting in my closet now. A final bit of brand newness – Truth released two styles last night, including this fantastically wavey ponytail. And, while not new, pick up your country tee from BOOM.

Skin: League – Erin (Sunkiss)
Eyes: Insufferable Dastard – Shimmer Eyes
Hair: Truth – Honey (Light Blondes)
Top: BOOM – Twenty-Three Tee (USA)

All the Single Ladies (Pose Fair 2014, Part I)

posefair_mien posefair_fri posefair_marukin

Today begins my favorite event of the year: Pose Fair 2014, presented by The Hottie Cooterati Experience! Don’t get me wrong, there’s many great events every month, and a special few rank very high in my book. But I have the most fun with Pose Fair, because to me, poses are what hold a photo together. Plus I get to stock up on my supply without having to run sim to sim to sim; it’s all on one. The sim will open up Saturday, April 19th (today!) at Noon SLT. (URL to be provided here once the event opens!)

I was lucky enough to get into the fair early, and spent more than I meant to. But that just means there’s a lot to preview for you. Breaking it down first is what I use the most – single female poses. Mien has a fun pose set out for mock selfies that comes with it’s own iphone-like prop to use. Fri.day and Marukin also both have new singles pose sets out, which any look at my archive here will tell you… they are among my favorite. Simple and clean, neither ever disappoint. A good investment for any photo-fiend!

I can’t go without mentioning the clothes, of course. ColdLogic has another spring set out, with three belted dresses available. And over at the 100 Block event, you’ll find these sandals from Reign – a new to me store with shoes that emptied my wallet. This hair from Magika is actually a modified version, but there’s now a proper short haired (no braids) version available called Shimmer, so be sure to pick that up!

Skin: League – Erin (Sunkiss)
Eyes: Insufferable Dastard – Shimmer Eyes (Blue)
