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.

The Last Gasp.

Obviously I know that for all the Autumn season is upon us but of course in SL it can be Summer all year round.

Glasses11I got a parcel off Boom which is like an early Xmas pressie but I have to confess when I saw it contained bikini’s and sunglasses I groaned and kept it unrezzed.  Finally knowing Booms quality I gave in and opened it and it got a WOW off me.  The bikini is as always with Boom great texturing, fitting etc but check out the specks!  the only SL glasses I wear are my beloved Nerdy ones, usually the oversized glamourpus ones turn me cold but I absolutely LOVE these the colouring is stunning esp the lenses. I’m not sure if it’s because of the updated viewer but these rezzed so quickly.  I think they’re going to be just as great under a big floppy hat as they are posing on a beach.  I love them so much when I got back inworld I TPed to Boom to buy the Cocoa coloured ones for my own use..

BoomThis is me popping into Boom to get my new glasses and Boom, Piddle and Misteria have all had a complete change of shop so if you haven’t visited for a while come check em out because new shops, new layouts, new stuff.

Roses Are Red

Sorry couldn’t help myself and wear my Lolas again, I am going to have to wean myself off them but until then I’ll wear them with pride. What you should be looking at is those amazing gloves and roses.  The gloves are mesh and although I’ve used a dramatic lightening effect they are that colour.  In fact there is a whole wall of deep rich colours or pretty pastel colours, so much so I was grateful that you could buy a fat pack so I chose the one that contained this colour Cherry Velvet and also Burgandy, Navy Cashmere, Tangerine and Black Suede all mesh and all lush and at 2oo  each the fat pack of 5 for 400Lds was a great investment.

A great investment because I then WON the random and first prize of  the “12 days of giving event” that  Boom, Piddle and Misteria  is running at this moment so not only do I get my piccie on the Christmas Tree but I get a 1000Lds worth of their goodies.  The only thing is one check of my invent and I think I already own most of their shop contents however and this is a big woo hoo Boom has a small and fledging selection of Lola Tango outfits and they’re going to be mine now.

This also gave me the good excuse to wear my Roses and that’s all they are.  Wearable roses however they have a little trick because if you or a loved one click on a rose they drop off until nothing is covering your blushes. A bargain price of 12Lds but please not once clicked thats them gone for good.   Gumi Flower shop is the shop and they have some lovely freebies and some beautiful flowers and cute critters.  Actually although the shop is a lovely open air area I’d reccoment a little bit of MP Surfing because it’s all there under one roof so to say and they just have some divine plants, pets and deccorations and all reasonably priced.

Some more piccies on my Flickr for you to see.
