RUSH!

In RL I’m a “Specky 4 Eyes” and I love it.  I think I suit glasses they frame my eyes lovely and best of they make me look more intelligent (God knows I need help there) and although I have a few glasses in SL as soon as I saw these I had to have them.

glasses

I’ve thrown up my simple concrete house and just used my sim setting just to show you how brill these glasses are and at only 50Lds I treated myself to a second pair.

I had always joked with friends and families that if I had to wear glasses I would buy a monocle, much to their horror, but I chickened out in the end.

The reason for the rush is that there is sale on for a limited time and everything seems to be either 50Lds or 99Lds and although I’ve just found this notice and I try to keep on top of them I don’t know when this sale is going to be over.

Actually now that I’ve looked at the Pixel Box Marketplace shop even at full price these are still really good value.

Time Wasting (Freebies).

I decided to take the piccies in Liquet Selona shop, Bella’s Lullaby, because I was determined to win one of the prizes on the LBs.   I did win the top one shown in this picture but I’m still waiting for the white shirt I really wanted to come back up and I’m keeping my fingers crossed that it has my initials on it when it does.bowMy initial still hadn’t come up so I popped up to the little sitting area on the roof and took another picture because all is not lost. Liquet Selona has 2 free to join Group Gifts to be snagged.  The top picture is of a “Hipster” top with mesh shorts and glasses this bottom picture is of the same shorts as the top but a lovely mesh top and that red hair bow.  So even though my initial on the LBs hasn’t come up yet I’m so pleased with these lovely GGS.

Sorry boys no GG’s for you but check out the upper levels for some mens mesh wear.

Take a walk outside of the shop as well because he has a lovely landscaped platform for people to enjoy and also a small Gacha Yardsale going on so you might find something you’ve missed.

Safari – New round of collabor88

Scarlet Creative Safari Bed NEW - collabor88 - 88L!

Ohmailawd, I went a bit crazzzzzylegs at this months round of collabor88 ! So many goodies, so little cash pffft. If you’re looking for the deal of the century, check the new bed out from Scarlet Creative. Its SO luxurious and SO on theme. Id say it’s girly but it isn’t really, its more unisex. Four poster, with attached blinds artfully rolled up, half down, lowered etc. Actually you get two versions, one with blinds one without. 15Li is low for this size of item, and the amount of scattered pillows and detail, almost amaaaazing!. Poses for singles & couples btw. Alllll this for just 88L, can you resist? Thanks Charlotte ❤

Fairy Unique Rental - scarlet creative bed collabor88 - Teethy shirt - cheveux hair - bacalava glasses

I plundered the tee*fy stand and snapped up two of these shirts (and two pairs of matching shorts.) Nice touch that you get a shirt with or without pockets, like that. What I really wanted you to see was my newwwwww lips ! I trundled over to Pink Acid yesterday and saw this lipstick (with teeth or without), beautiful neutral summer shade, sorta peachy pink (?) I’m going back for more today ! I swear Pink Acid has the best lipsticks & glosses evaaar. O.o btw my glasses are from Balaclava – tbh I couldn’t tell if they were for guys or gals, so as it was their fifty linden friday item I took a chance. Brilliant ! You get a clear and sunglasses version in the pack, worth checking if they left them out – some merchants leave them for a coupla days.

Dinner Dates (freebies)

dinner

Have to say I had a fun day in SL.  First I found a shop packed with super Kawaii cute outfits, make up, tattoo’s, shoes, GGs and even Lucky Chairs so I clicked away picked up some goodies and won a couple of freebies.   Even if you’re not interested in some new clothes pop over for the lippies because CottonCANDYmonsteR has packs of pouty lips, teeth showing lips etc so quite a variety to chose from.

As for my “dinner dates” these brill 1 prim Wrapped Corpses come from Walton F. Wainwrigh and his partner Alushiaus Wainwright shop ContraptioN.  You get a whole load of them in various form of rigor, lol, and also some different texturing.  Faith will remember that no matter how nice my home was there was always a stuff corpse under the floor boards or in the bushes waiting for the unsuspecting cammer I think it’s about time to restart this tradition.

Sadly as I’m sat here finishing off this post and grabbing the LM my initial hasn’t come up on the Lucky Boards here but don’t fret because apart from the Grizzly corpses there are other freebies.  Just for interest check out Walton F. Wainwright (faust.steamer) profile because everything here is heavily influence in the Steampunk style and in his profile he has a clear and very interesting description about Steam punk and all the other “punky” genre.

PS The plate I am holding is a plate of fresh brains a perfect dish for those you love.

Ballroom or Bordello?

Spent a little time looking through my notices and came across one for the Genre event which is new to me.  The premiss is ” Genre is a new monthly event that focuses on celebrating the different cultures within SL” and even better nothing is priced over 100Lds.

urb100glassThis is The Annex’s offering of a completely sumptuous mesh dress with a very Victorian/steam punk inspired look.  Red Damask is the name with rich draped blood red Damask over a satin black underskirt. The low-cut top allows a lot of cleavage and the straps on the arm flex really well.  The main body of the skirt is non rigged  which means it doesn’t flow as much as a unrigged mesh and in fact I saw the demo of this on someone else and my first thought was it’s a sculpted skirt but it’s not, that still didn’t put me off trying the demo for myself and especially since it’s on special off of only 100Lds I was so pleased with it happily snapped it up but definitely try the demo first.   It’s so regal and, going to say it again, sumptuous.  Almost forgot to say gloves and veiled hat are also included.

The hair is another offer from Curio Obscura at Genre .and it’s from one of my fav quirky shops in SL.  I chose the “Victorina Ladylike” style but the is another equally as stylised hair option.  A very stylish thick look, piled high with thick ringlets.  Certainly a unique look.

GlassThen I turned off the light and walked “through the looking glass” and WOAH…..

urb100You enter a wonderland.  A large ballroom stuffed with all the weird and wonderful things we love about Alice in Wonderland.   I’ve already missed last Saturdays  ball but there is another one this Saturday so I have made a note of the time and I’m hoping to get there myself.  This is a massive build over many sims (yes I’ve forgotten how many).  I frequent it and never get bored because behind every door is  a stunning room or display.  The heart of all the sims is The Red Rose Theatre  a palace that would equal Versailles in opulence.  Open to all, you don’t have to be dressed up to the nines but this is a place to put on your full length gowns or best suit and tie and just go OTT.  Even if you’re not into dressing up you’re still more than welcome.  This isn’t a “naughty” place and you won’t find certain pose balls but what you will find it many areas to just sit and relax from the formal to the casual, pools and stables and plenty of gardens to wander.

A nice touch is that most of the furnishings are for sale but instead of having to TP to the shop you can just click and buy the item as it’s placed out in the palace AND WOW I’ve just seen in their blog that they now have whole suites for rent as soon as I rezz inworld I’m off for a mooch around for myself.

Boom.

I always love getting sent gifties off Boom, Mysteria or even Piddle because I know that it’s gonna be good.  So I tried on the shorts and shirt, oo’d over the bag and then put it all away.  Since I’ve got so much left on my Boom Credit I decided it’s time to haul ass and see whats new and this is my “goto” winter outfit.

Boom useI have an almost identical pair of those trousers in RL (although not as flared!) and although I don’t walk around with my navel so exposed I know that with a woolie or in this case a jacket they can look so great not only in SL but RL.  The trousers are called “Norfolk Tweeds” and there is a complete range of colours from winter/autumnal colours to pastels and creams.  All of course come as demos and even fat packs.  The jacket  is whats got me because it comes from the Cartel Collection which I wasn’t sure if it was a boom design or if I could use my store credit and happily I could.  I just knew that this zingy orange coat (full name is Chinese Short Coat in Firework) would look stunning with the trousers or even just jeans.  Such an unique look that stands out from the crown.  A total of 4 colours in this style of jacket but there are other jackets in a similar vein with more colour options.  This is a strange one because “one size fits all” and as far as I can tell that’s exactly the case.

Now look closely at the hair. Faith managed to blog the previous Mina hair before me so as soon as I got this I sent her a note which said something along the lines of “back off the Mina hair Biatch”.  Mina isn’t of course the only hair I love in SL but what I love most about her hairs is the colouring.  She does everything from the more sedate blondes to the extreme gingers and all the colours in between. Her hair is like a great RL hair dye job in that there are so many colours blended together to make the overall colour.  This one is called Josje  and I’ve used a different shade in each picture but please be brave and try out ALL of the colours before you make your choice because you maybe suprised at how good some of the colours you normally wouldn’t have looked at previously can look.

PS don’t forget to check out the upstairs there is a particularly lovely windy hair and hat up there which I am buying right now.
