{ Need a little help with my swing } The Liaison Collaborative is OPEN!

Golf_FINAL2

Hello lovelies… Spring is in full force here in the northern hemisphere, the world is bright and green and the days are getting longer so you can spend more time soaking up the sun!  For many people, it also means spending a lot more time being active instead of sitting behind the computer.. A time to rejuvenate and re-prioritize is never a bad thing.  We all need a little break from once in a while.  The Liaison Collaborative and the lead lady in charge, Katya Valeska is no exception.  The event is running it’s last round currently before taking a little hiatus for the summer.  But we’ve been assured, it will be back in full swing in a few months!  So for now, come enjoy this month’s offerings with a very male-friendly and focused theme of “The Gentleman’s Club”.  Ladies, don’t let the theme scare you, there are still plenty of unisex goodies as well as masculine inspired female fashions.  This round just opened May 15th, and will continue to run until June 10th.  Hope to see you there!

Snowflake-full_FINAL

Hi guys and girlies! Exposeur put out this super cute photo prop box full of snowflakes and baubles on Cyber Monday and I grabbed it up quick knowing I would put it to use for some fun wintery shots.  And since The Liaison Collaborative‘s “Winter Harvest” round is wrapping up in just 6 more days to get ready for a new theme starting December 15th, I have added the lit trees from Pixel Mode.  I’m also featuring the snowflake sweater by Coquet, casual and comfy along with the {Wicked Peach}‘s rosy cheeks.  All available at TLC until December 14th.  Coldlogic just released a bunch of new seasonal clothing the past few weeks, lots of coats and leggings… like the ones I’m wearing.  And there are many other events around the grid right now featuring stylin’ snow lover winterwear.. The Arcade Gacha event that opened Dec 1st runs for the whole month and has lots of frosty finds like ATOMIC‘s adorable bunny scarf and mittens.  And FaMESHed that just opened on the 1st as well is where i snagged the sweet knit hat w/hair by Tableau Vivant and this lovely snowflake necklace by Cae’s.  N21 is in full swing and had the perfect silvery boots by REIGN to complete my style.  All this wouldn’t be complete without the cool “Lola” skin by Belleza out now for the “Winter Trend” Fair.

Snowflake-close_FINAL

Second Life definitely is in no shortage of Winter friendly events for your shopping needs!   And if you are in a mood to go check out some awesome sims/homes that have been done up and decorated for the holidays – make sure to stop in at the locations on this year’s “Tour of Lights” open December 18-21.

{ Like a Virgin } My 10 SL Firsts Meme

 Retro80s-full_FINAL

This is a blog about firsts and it’s fitting that this is actually the very *first* blog meme I’ve participated in as well (So thank you very much Strawberry Singh for being my First)!  I was rather stoked that it coincided with some rather cool 80s throwback charm jewelry by (Yummy) released at Collabor88 this round  that totally inspired me to do a full on set from the era of my youth.  I hope those of you that grew up in the 80s can appreciate the nostalgia going on in here.  I fully admit to having far too much fun putting it all together and was amazed at all the awesome retro stuff out there in SL (in mesh even!). I could have totally kept going but resisted on account of it turning out to look like a scene out of “Hoarders” 1980 style.

Retro80s-close_FINAL

And so without further ado… Let’s go back in time to my virginly days in SL and I’ll tell you a little about my 1st experiences.  No judging allowed! LOL

  1. First SL Friend: Pixie, I met her on Help Island my first day in SL and we went through all the tutorials together and then ventured into the great unknown of the metaverse.  We stayed friends for a few years even through many weddings and lots of drama, but ultimately we grew apart.
  2. First SL Kiss: Pixie LOL (I was experimenting!! and welp, someone had to hop on those poseballs with me!)
  3. First SLex time/place/partner: uh… yeah I think I will refer to question #2. and it was on a piano. 😛
  4. First SL Partner/Girlfriend/Boyfriend/Wife/Husband: I have only ever had one partner in SL and his name is Bio Flow.  I met him my first month in SL at Sweethearts Jazz Club and when I found out he was Aussie, I might’ve got a wee bit excited thinking about his accent.  But we were together in SL for 3.5 years (which is like 35 years in SL) and did the whole big wedding thing, and even a vow renewal after some rocky times.
  5. First SL Job: My first official job which I usually dismiss was as a store model for Damage Clothing… I basically stood on some sexy pose stand wearing their clothes and talking to people that came in the store.  It was crap for money and didn’t last long.  I moved onto being a Hostess at Sweethearts and then to being a Photographer.
  6. First SL Creation: A pillow.  And I remember it was fugly but functional. I even learned how to add a sit script in it.  I was so proud of myself.
  7. First Encounter with a Linden: I believe it was summer of 2008 while working at Sweethearts, but I don’t remember which Linden it was that popped over.  Nor did I really understand who they were… I think I actually believed all the Lindens were related at first.  LOL like this whole family is running SL.  Yes, I’m a dork.
  8. First Encounter with a SLebrity: omgosh I really don’t even know on this one, I’ve come in to contact with quite a few designers or creators but probably didn’t realize at the time even.  I think it was probably Agnes Finney of My Precious because I won a photo contest for her store back in January 2009 and they held a party to celebrate the winners.  I remember trying to be all professional and not act like a noob fangirl…. but in the end, I don’t necessarily buy into the SLebrity thing.  We’re all just people behind a computer.  I do however have great respect and admiration for the talents of many people in SL.
  9. First SL Sim you fell in love with: Hmm… It’s a toss up between The SL Botanical Gardens and Inspire Space Park.  I frequented many gardens in my initial days after discovering that SL wasn’t just a series of nude beaches, this one always had lots of different nooks and things to explore and I always found it a fun, peaceful retreat.  It was a friend that introduced me to Inspire and I was immediately in awe.  I mean, how cool is it when you can float through space watching the planets pass by while listening to trippy music like some psychedelic Disney ride in Tomorrowland!!
  10. First SL Blog Post: Well considering I’m new to blogging, it wasn’t that long ago really. March 21st, 2013 was my first official day as a blogger and my post was about New Beginnings.  Nothing out of the ordinary except my attempt at not overly editing photos as I’m accustomed to doing.  And I’m still as excited about doing it as I was then.

Well thanks for reading… I totally want to go roller skating now.

{ All American Sweetheart }

Well it’s Friday and y’all know what that means…. SHOPPING FLF (Fifty Linden Fridays)!  Ok ok… yes and the weekend!  I am not sure if your weekends are full of working, crazy nights out, or family time, but mine seem to be mostly similar to my weekdays.  But I’m a bit determined to try to do something new or different this weekend.

I am already off to a good start with checking out a brand new sim that just opened today called Happiness is Liberty“.  Kaelyn Alecto, who’s friend is the owner, put out the invitation today in Plurk and after seeing the preview pictures, I knew I had to go see it for myself. It really is a nice sim and I was particularly drawn to the open grassy field with thick forest in the background that has trails going through it.  It reminded me of growing up in Michigan actually with the wooded areas.

Sweetheart-Full

So in addition to trying out a new place I also am showing off some great new pieces from some different events on the grid right now.  First off, for FLF today Elate! has these super sweet jeans with heart prints on them out!  At FaMESHed which just opened this past  weekend you can find this adorable new hair from Truth as well as cute cropped sweater with a variety of prints by Cracked Mirror. I also stopped by IKON to pick up the new VIP group gift “Ardent” eyes in Pewter.  The poses are also brand spanking new from Everglow in her new Girls Poses pack out now at Pose Fair!

Sweetheart-Close

Now although these aren’t new, I just have to rave a bit about these oxford shoes I picked up at [Monso] a while back because they’re pretty versatile and darn cute.  They have a color changing HUD that allows you to change the 2 different areas of the shoes independently as well as the laces and soles.  Solid colors and patterned options included.

Sweetheart-ShoesHope everyone has a fabulous weekend and that it’s filled with fun and maybe some new adventures!
