{ My Happy Place } Coming soon to TLC!

Hi lovelies.. this is gonna be a pretty long post of pics so I’m keeping it short n sweet with the wordiness.  I’ve been a fan of DRD (Death Row Designs) for a while, Jaime is notorious for her epic Arcade/Gacha Collections and so not surprisingly it was love at first sight with this adorable Summer Dock set that is coming soon to The Liaison Collaborative for the “Endless Summer” theme.  It’s perfect for that beach/lakeside party on the dock with friends, and is chocked full of cute animations and seating all around..including in the canoe! (click on the images to enlarge!)

And speaking of friends, I called my girls to come join me for some fun in the sun and snapped a few pics of us for oOo Studio‘s new poses that will also be available at this round of TLC!  Perfect for groups of 2, 3 or 4 people.

The Liaison Collaborative opens up on August 7th and will continue til month end.  Plenty of time to get your end of summer party started!

Got a few fun new goodies to show off to you today… GizzA has come out with several great new outfits lately, this one released just today that I’m loving.  It’s a little bit on the country side, but I think that’s why I like it.  The Wendy Denim Skirt and Knotted Top both come in a variety of colors and patterns to mix and match with each other or other items in your virtual closet.  I am also wearing Glam Affair‘s newest skin, “Fiona“, available at this round of Uber.  6 different makeups in two skin tones and allll the eyebrow options.   Lastly, tomorrow is Fifty Linden Friday and this week oOo Studio is participating with this fun singles pose set with color changing balloon prop!  Definitely a great deal to pick up when you make the rounds.

{ The sun is up.. so cool me down } NEW from oOo Studio & GizzA

Hello lovely people… Well in the northern hemisphere of the world right now, it’s practically nearly just about almost summer now.  At least that is what my thermometer is telling me.  The days are getting hot, hot, hotter and the A/C is crankin.  Walking outside for any length of time with the sun beating down on me and I’m ready to dive into a pool.  Yes I’m a wuss.  I won’t lie.  I’m not a hot weather girl.  Too much Michigan in me.  So you won’t find me heading out in the heat of the day without a cold bottle of something to keep me cooled off.

Alexis_FINAL

Fortunately, oOo Studio has a great new set of poses just for that!  Out today for Fifty Linden Fridays is a set of 5 poses all with a cold one in hand (bottle prop included) perfect for those hot summer days.  Also, newly released is this sporty set by GizzA complete with sneakers and color changing HUDs for your top and bottoms. Each color set has 3 options, for a total of 12 color choices in all.

Happy Shopping!  ❤

Brevity-single_DRAFT

In my neck of the woods, it’s just about time for school to start up again which for me is accompanied by a huge sigh of relief as the house is much quieter.  However, it won’t be long before I’m back at school myself, as I’ll be finally going back to get my Bachelor’s degree.  “MOM! I finally know what I wanna be when I grow up!”  Hitting the books again after all these years is a bit daunting, but I’ve been assured by everyone that I don’t have anything to worry about.  See back in my youth, I will admit, I was pretty academically minded and an over-achiever.  I might cry if i got a “B”.  And that perfectionist side of me is going to have a hard time letting some kids half my age get better test scores than me, so I’m going to have to up my game.  Make sure they know I mean business.  Gotta get in practice of late nights and lots of coffee…  Oh. Wait.  I might already be ready for that. *grins*

For those of you I know who are going after your education as an adult.. I applaud you and admire you.  It won’t be easy, but that was only 18 years ago right? *nervously laugh*

Brevity-Close_FINAL

Alright, about the pics… First I’d like to say I’d been waiting to blog this cute ready-for-school look for a couple weeks now.  Pretty much from the moment I laid eyes on this plaid dress from Valentina E. at the August round of FaMESHed.  It was just right for what I wanted.  Paired with the super adorable knee high socks and heels from LaRoo and maybe I can call it ‘geek chic’.  I’d also like to mention that this really well done, MESH, low-prim, and low-cost schoolroom that is a perfect set for your back-to-school photos or RPing I found on Marketplace from Utilizator.  And lastly, the poses (in the classroom) are from the new group gift “Brevity” by oOo Studio that will be in store in the next day or two.  The class picture is also courtesy of oOo Studio’s “Yearbook” pose/prop… with several different poses to choose from and backdrop colors.

{ 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.

{ Spring Fever needs a Vacation }

Fever_FINAL

In many parts of the United States right now, it’s Spring Break.  The ‘unofficial’ peak vacation period of the year.  It’s funny every year as this time approaches wherever I go in RL, someone asks me “Doing anything for Spring Break?” I usually stare at them blankly for a moment, not understanding and thinking in my head “Am I supposed to be doing anything?”  Then reply with a very disappointing  “Nope. Just the usual.”  I honestly don’t think I’ve ever gone anywhere for Spring Break except that one time in highschool, and well… it wasn’t to wild and exciting times in Florida like most highschool and college kids going to frolic on the sandy beaches and get their drink on… instead I was in Georgia. >insert unsure face here<

So since going somewhere exotic and exciting for Spring Break is a little beyond my reality at this point, I’ll just treat my spring fever with a little SL vacation.  In my search for the nearest airport, I was actually quite surprised there are a large number of them in SL that you can fly around and many have hangars for your planes, jets, and helicopters.  My flight landed me in the Miami Airport.  I will not go into detail about how I was nearly run down by one pilot .. but I suppose I was loitering on the runway a bit. 😛 Hey! I had to show off all my pretty spring goodies, like this cute new ColdLogic dress in yummy melon.  Added my new espadrilles from Gos Boutique, and struck a pose or two.  You can pick up the poses at oOo Studio right now for FREE to VIP Group Members!  And now, if you’ll excuse me… I have a date with the beach!
