{ Honey Sweet } NEW for Candy Fair!

Hi guys!  I’m a little behind on getting this up and posted but there are some sweet new poses available from oOo Studio at Candy Fair right now.  Candy Fair runs until October 17th, so you have plenty of time to get on over there and get the goodies!

The first is a new collection of couples poses called “Honey” – four different poses in varying sits, stands and lounging perfect for capturing a pic with that person you are sweet on.  Honey-01_FINALHoney-02_FINAL Honey-03_FINALHoney-04_FINAL

There is also a set of 7 singles poses in classic pin-up style called “Tootsie”.

This was my first year hitting up the Candy Fair and I will admit, I got sugar shocked and was overwhelmed with the cute.  Bai lindens!  You’ll love it.  And don’t forget to hit up the Gacha Alley for more surprises!

{ Alter Ego } Collabor88, Gizza and Belleza!

Alter ego

An alter ego (Latin, “the other I”) (disguised) is a second self, which is believed to be distinct from a person’s normal or original personality. A person who has an alter ego is said to lead a double life.

Greek-AlterEgo_FINAL

In many ways, Second Life itself is a means to providing all of us with an Alter Ego… a chance to express different parts of our personality in the way we interact with others. Perhaps you are more outgoing online, maybe thinner, or a blonde instead of a brunette, maybe you live as a child avatar or a furry, or you are Gorean slave master with a harem of women…or maybe your avatar is the complete opposite gender than you are in your first life.  No matter who you choose to “be” in SL… the beauty is there are no rules.  I live my SL each day how I wish to live it.  I change my hair color, I change my size, I change my style from dark and emo to whimsical and fun.  Sometimes I’m a vampire, sometimes a fairy, sometimes I’m a nudist (some people call that lazy).  Honestly, I enjoy trying out all the possibilities.  I don’t want to be limited to a nicely packaged box.  I don’t want to be predictable.  Real life is limiting enough.

This month’s special Anniversary Collabor88 event is coming to a close soon but if you like anything to do with greek or roman mythology especially pertaining to fashion or home decor… there is plenty to be had.  Get on over to check it out.  With the exception of a few tidbits, all items pictured are from the event.  Both of my alter egos are featuring Belleza‘s beautiful new skin “Grace” that comes in 2 skin tones (medium and tan) and 10 different makeup options… in addition I snuck in a new item from GizzA – the ‘epaulet’ which comes in an amazing array of colors and metal options.

So don’t hold back.. be who you want to be.  Show your light and show your dark.  Variety is the spice of life!

 Edgy-Full_FINAL

Been a busy week in both worlds, not leaving me much time for blogging but with the start of FaMESHed and C88 for May and the plethora of other new releases from some of my other favorite stores, I can’t help but want to show stuff off.  Gospel Voom just came out with yet another pair of sexy sleek wedge heels for his Gos Boutique line.

Edgy-Shoes_FINAL

Ikon Innovia has just released some beautiful new eyes called “Vanity” in a great array of colors.  You can even go pick up some in “denim” blue for the May VIP group gift.  The Plastik’s new collection of skinny jeans had me salivating because the designs were so unique and edgy.. Had to grab a few of those!  I’m a little slow to the party, but this look begged for some ear piercingsand I had just recently discovered the mesh ears from Mandala that were exactly what I needed… there are actually 3 different choices now for piercing styles that are all HUD operated (which I love) as well as one ear set that is un-pierced.  Gizza’s new bracelet watches along with LeLutka’s Emeli hairdo are hot hot hot and uber edgy.

Edgy-Close_FINAL

Very different from my usual look but I am loving it.  Til tomorrow when dress-up begins all over again. 😛

{ 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.

For anyone that follows my work (even prior to blogging) they would probably say I have a certain style to my photos.  I am sure most of the time it comes across as more romantic and whimsical (like my last few posts), sometimes sensual.  Not usually edgy.  Although it’s fun to venture outside the box sometimes.  It’s one of the things I like best about Second Life actually: being able to change my style according to my mood or just simply to be different.  I’ve often felt that in my real life I am viewed a certain way… I’m a mom, the good girl, the wife.  I do dishes and laundry and carpool kids to soccer practice.  Yet there is so much more to my interests, my personality, ME… than what everyone sees.  In RL, I can’t dye my hair black and wear leather studded miniskirts when dropping my son off to school (well, I can, but I’m sure I’d get some pretty strange looks, particularly from my 6 year old).   So sometimes I enjoy exploring those not so typically ‘good girl’ sides to myself through my SL.  Because here, I am anything I wanna be.  For the moment.
