Fresh and Unknown

March 11, 2012

I found this sweet, fresh little mesh dress from Sugar when I stumbled upon the Depraved Nation Gatcha Fair.  Chloe and my alt both got rare dresses!  Woot!  It’s going on until the 17th, so be sure you get down there and pick up some great deals.

Also going on this month is the Fresh Unknown Hunt.  It’s been a while since my first post about it, so I’ll remind you about the concept:  The hunt is filled with gifts from newer designers and creators.  These stores have been open for less than 5 months, so expect to find some great new favorite creators as you’re hunting!  This cute skybox is from dirty.little.secret and I’m absolutely in love with the feathery touches throughout the design.  The hunt runs all month, so you’ve got a few more weeks to get out there.  Happy hunting!

52 Weeks of Color, Part Deux – Dandelion

March 8, 2012

I’m playing a bit of catch-up with my color challenge, but I’m getting there.

The focus for this color isn’t just about the look, it’s about this lovely vignette from Zoe’s Garden.  Adele Rhiadra makes me so happy when she creates these little meadows (her Autumn Island is one of my other favorites).

I wasn’t really thinking about it when I was putting this shot together, but Chloe often helps me work through my thoughts while I’m blogging, and today she brought my attention to the fact that spring is right around the corner – daylight saving time is this weekend!  I know most of us haven’t had a “real” winter, and I don’t know about you, but I think I’m subconsciously yearning for spring.  Chloe’s outstretched arms and closed eyes made me realize that I am looking forward to spring.  Embracing it, even.  I’ve had a lot of changes going on in my RL and change is always hard for me.  Change is a scary thing, but it has to happen.  So, as the season changes, hopefully I’ll be welcoming whatever blossoms in my life as much as I’m looking forward to the first dandelions poking their heads out of the grass.

(How spoiled by mesh are we??  I grumbled about this system skirt the whole time I had it on!  LOL)

Peace on Earth

December 2, 2011

I’m not ready to accept the fact that it’s winter.  Nope.  December 2nd?  I don’t care.  I’m not ready for cold.  I’m not ready for Christmas shopping.  I’m not ready for holiday travel.  I’m not ready for staticy hair.  I’m not ready for Christmas music…  gawd…  Anyway, can you tell I’m not ready?  So today’s post is in a very special spring meadow, protesting the change of season.

But I SUPPOSE there are a few things I’m ready for, and one of them is the Peace On Earth 4 Hunt.  I got my Rockberry-lovin’ fingers on the POE4 hunt gift and it’s just gorgeous.  Lovely dark, yet casual, makeup for winter.  And freckles!  Yay!  (There’s a non-freckled option too, but I don’t know why you’d want it, lol.)

What IS Average, Anyway?

August 28, 2011

Well, I’ll tell you.  At least, I’ll tell you what an average SL female avatar looks like.  There was a “What’s Your Digits” meme thingy going around, starting with Strawberry Singh’s blog and evolving to a Flickr group that ended up with Vaki taking (what I can only imagine was a ridiculous amount of) her time to compile all the data that was volunteered by our fabulous SL, Plurk and Flickr friends.  And with that data, Vaki made an “average” male and female shape that she’s generously giving to the community.  So head on over to RezIpsa Loc, where Rezzie has given a prime spot to the vendor for these free shapes, and grab a folder and keep it in your inventory.  The shapes are full perms, so you can share them with one of those slider-maxed noobs out there.  Thanks Vaki!

While you’re at RezIpsa Loc, grab one of her I Survived Irene tees that she has out on special!

LOTD

August 23, 2011

Heyheyhey, lookie who’s back in less than a week with a new post!  And it’s a Look of the Day, no less.  I’ve never done one of these before!  I’m usually soooo driven by an event or challenge or sale or whatever that I never have the opportunity or desire to do a “just because” post.  I’m really going to try getting back in the swing of things here.  I’ve heard from a couple of little birdies that I’ve been missed and that stroked my ego just enough to get me going again.

So, I give you the Look of the (yester)Day!  …and today too, since I liked it so much.  lol

I Love Being a Girl!

August 17, 2011

I do, really! And I love being a blogger, too! I’ve been busy with RL and as I mentioned before, a little down and out, a little lacking in… passion. But I’m back! And feeling very delicate and girlie. So it’s fitting that I pulled out my Exposeur pose pack while I was wearing my graceful little Tiny Bird dress.  And how sweet is this Truth hair?!

Okay, I’m getting lost in my own little white, swirly, girlie fantasy here and forgetting the point of this post:

Rockberry is having a sale!! All single skins in the store are marked down to 100L each! It’s a quickie Back to School sale and it will be over by Friday, so get there fast! There’s also a Platinum Hunt item hidden in the store (the hint is something about apples and calories, I forget exactly).

 

So, thanks to everyone for sticking around and being patient with me. I’m really going to try to get back on the wagon. I have a ton of 52 Weeks of Color posts to catch up on and Agnes Finney is going to fire me before I even get to blog something for her, so I’ve gotta get crackin’!

The Moon and The Elements

March 13, 2011

Again, another twofer!  This one is mostly the 52 Weeks of Color – Umber, but I managed to spend Lindens this week (even after I purposefully missed FLF!) and decided to share my lovely purchases with you.  I popped into CHIC Management’s CHIC Limited Event for March and fell in love with the Mynerva skin.  Now, that’s not a difficult thing to imagine, but the four skins for this event…  Absolute love.  CHIC Limited is a monthly event with a handful of brands producing new and exclusive items to go with that month’s theme.  This month’s theme is The Elements and Mynerva has put out four skins with coloring and facial details to go with each element.  They are discounted so much I decided it’d be juuuuuust fine to go ahead and get the fatpack.  In addition, I also picked up the Petals in the Wind pose and prop pack from aDORKable while I was there.

I’m not exactly sure how I went from “umber” to “I’m gonna do something really cool with shadows since I know where the word umber comes from” to “eclipse” to “oooohhhh, pretty fire skin, oooohhhh, pretty tintable petals with cute poses,” but I did.  So now you’ve got your CHIC mixed with umber and fire.  Deal with it.  Enjoy it.  Or don’t.  I don’t really care.  Here it is:

More Juice

March 5, 2011

I was just informed that the Pure Juice event doesn’t open today until 4pm SLT.  And while that really sucks that you’ll have to wait that long, it means this is still a preview post!  Woot!  Go me!  LOL

Anyhow, I was going to do a shiny-sexy-alien-takeover something, but I wanted to get this out this afternoon, so I scrapped it.  It was the fun little sleeves and the shading on the ViLada dresses that took me to space, so I popped on some metallic eyeshadow from a.e.meth and my platinum Gos booties to go with the flow.

Primrose and Grapefruit Juice

March 5, 2011

I was supposed to be highlighting items from the Pure Juice event that’s starting today, but I got distracted while playing with windlight, shadows and depth of field.  Cool Beans’ sweet little dress and pumps were adorable (though the dress was a little too lingerie-feeling for me) but got a little overshadowed by Ulaa Coronet’s Primrose Weathered Greenhouse.  The detail in the textures and the construction are absolutely perfect.  I live on a beach, so I took the pics inside one of  Turnip’s skydomes, but this greenhouse is really making me want to move to a wildflower filled meadow somewhere.

So here are a few of the many pics I took.  Like I said, the quality of the greenhouse made me want to take snaps from every angle, the wood looked so beautiful and real, the vines hanging out front were adorable, the glass roof made delightful shadows on the floor…  Okay, okay, pics.

So.  Head on over to the Juicy sim and check out all the wonderful items have been designed just for you and the Pure Juice event.  Do it.  Nao.
