The last days of summer

I’m really excited as we move into this next season as it is one of my favorite in and out of SL.  The weather won’t start to get cool here until another month, though it will be a welcome change from the oppressive heat we sometimes get during the summer months.

I hope it’s been a great weekend for you all!

Coastal waters

I though that my summer postings were done… so not quite.  Though great setting for the weekend that is here and for America, it’s also a long weekend as it’s Labor Day on Monday.   The Praiano table set is by Chez Moi and at Cosmopolitan, which is the event being featured.

I’m wearing an outfit by Scandalize. It’s available in 21 color options with each having two top versions.  It’s also available at Cosmo.  The hair is a new release by eXxEsS and at the main store.

The topiary trees and the tree to the side is by Little Branch.  The topiary is the item for Hello Tuesday, but I just checked and it’s still available for half off.  The floor pillows with pillow holder, fire pit and pillow box is by Nerenzo and at Cosmo.

The last item is the coastal outdoor seating by Shutter Field & Decor Junction.  It can be found at Shiny Shabby.

Have a great weekend!!

Storytelling

This picture was born out of the request from a creator if we could include avatars in the blog post using their decor — to see some form of emotion, tension or message that creates a story that others can identify with.  Most often than not I don’t like to pose myself in decor pictures, because I want the focus to be on the decor and not myself unless I am also showcasing fashion.

Though it was a reasonable request that I felt that I could manage and since I had some sexy pieces of lingerie that I needed to also blog the idea for me, myself and I came to fruition.  The decor is the club sofa set by N4RS available now at FaMESHed, which is made up of the brown sofa, decorative table beside it with the candle and rug.  The black lingerie is by V/. VoluptasVirtualis and it’s at the Crystal Heart Festival with the hair I’m wearing by No.Match at The Liaison Collaborative. The scarlet harness set is by The Forge and this is at the recently open new round of The Fantasy Collective.

Enjoy the rest of your day!

I'll wait… for a time

Morning everyone. Even though it’s a little before the 10 am hour I’m still a bit groggy from lack of sleep as I’ve been doing a few late nights this week to complete a project non second-life related.  It probably has a little to do with eating a full breakfast of pancakes and eggs, something that doesn’t happen every morning at least for me as I’m not much of a morning eater.  Today was an exception.

I’m wearing a new skin by *YS&YS* called Ludo made for the new generation Akeruka mesh head. It’s a main store release so no fighting lag at an event to take a look.  I’m wearing it in tone 02, but it’s also available in a range of tones that go from 00 to 04.  I’m also wearing the shape that came with the skin, specifically for Valerie mesh head by Akeruka Creations, the one I’m wearing.

This cute new hairstyle is by eXxEsS and another main store release available in several colors. The black bodysuit is by Tentacio and it’s part of their Sakiko gacha at Lootbox. Here is the key so that you can see the other items in the gacha that can be worn independently as well.  The thigh garter is by Empire and comes with a color hud giving you lost of options. It’s going to be available at the upcoming Crystal Hearts event that I believe opens this Friday. These sexy shoes are a new release by N-core and currently available at this month’s round of Kustom9.  I’m wearing the Maitreya version, but you can also find versions for Belleza and Slink as well a version to fit their own mesh feet.

I’m using a lamp and a bed from creators participating at this round of Cosmopolitan that ends July 2nd.

Have a great rest of the day!

Hot summer nights

I didn’t anticipate doing a second post today, but it is looking like I will be going out of town on the weekend for a week and that means being on a laptop.  I don’t like using a laptop for SL as the screen is way too small for one thing. This just means that I will work extra hard the next few days to get some posts done and lined up so that all I have to do is press a few buttons and I’m done.

I’m showcasing a mixture of summer fashion and some fun decor, so take a peek at credits for everything shown.

Special moments

I had another post planned for today, but then I realized that 6th Republic is going to end in just another four days and I wanted to get this post in and not leave it to last minute.  If you haven’t been you’re missing out on some great stuff.

Besides items from 6th Republic I am also showing some fashion items from a few individual creators participating in other events as well, including this raven wall decor that you can grab only today at a bargain for Hello Tuesday.

Until next time.

Club Trouble

I went clubbing with my friend Exis last night and I’m not so sure she really wanted to dance at first even though she asked me to change dances at one point, because the current dance reminded her of her dad dancing or something like that or she just wanted to play match maker.

I’m no shrinking violet so I took her dare to say hello to a total stranger and told him that my friend and I wondered why he was standing straight up almost nervously with the looks of needing to go to the men’s room and it was busy.  I told him in no uncertain terms that it was Exis’s impression not mine.  I’m the innocent one here.

He laughed and later apologized because he was lagging so badly. On a good tip I told him to derender everyone except me and that would help a lot. His response was to tell me he was lagging due to playing another game while in SL… hmm yeah. Wrong answer. Next.

Thanks Exis for a fun time!!

The small things that take up the most room in your heart

Just a quick post today to show you some recent new releases starting with the new hair style by eXxEsS called Sangria. It’s a long hair style that goes down your back and includes the “Breeze” technology that animates the hair and a texture HUD that has single tone hair colors.  The other item that I am featuring are the lace-up suede heels by Tetra, which were released at an event that has ended.  You can find them in different colors at the main store.

Have a great one!

There’s no other like you

Today has really been a lazy Sunday and I’ve not done much of anything except bake brownies, blog, text with a friend and I took an hour nap.

Anyways, hope your day has been just as easy. With this post I am showcasing items from the new round of On9, that just began a few days ago on the 9th and ends on the 28th. The Moonsoul swimsuit by [Aleutia] is the bikini top and bottom that comes with a HUD that has 30 color options for main and strap parts.

The Scarlet tattoo by Nanika comes in a black, white and henna version and it’s also at On9. The shoes are by Empire and is available at Chapter Four.  As always with all Empire shoes, it also comes with HUD with many color options.

My decor is a combination, but the main pieces are by unKindness in collaboration with Ariskea. The solace set is available at this round of Collabor88 and is made up of the door nook, the seating, table and plant. The fruit dolls decor is gacha items by Les Sucreries de Fairy and at On9. The tulips are also gacha items by Bee Designs also at On9 and the last item is the cake by Ionic, that is part of the Spirit gacha set that I showed a day or so ago.

Have a great one!

Happy Saturday!

I don’t have so much time this morning as I’m on my way out for a few hours to get some personal things done, but I really wanted to post before I left.  I’ll be very brief and leave you with credits for now.

First, I’m really excited that I’m going to be blogging for Anhelo and look forward to showing some of their new releases in the future. I’ll give a little more of an introduction later in case you’re not familiar with them.  I’m also showing a new gacha of the love pugs by JIAN for The Gacha Garden.  I put the creators notes below credits for all the pugs and you can find the key here.  New thigh boots by Empire that can be found at Kustom9 and new hair style by eXxEsS at their main store. The dress is at Tres Chic by KC and rush because the event is about to end.

I hope in my rush I didn’t have any typos.. Thanks everyone!

━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━

Here are some helpful tips on how to use each pug in the Love Pugs set..

━━━━━━━━━━━━ ★ RARES★ ━━━━━━━━━━━━

All rares in this set texture change both the pup between the four coat colors and have accessory texture options as well!

━ 1. Free Kisses
This is a rezzed item with an animation for the pug and an avatar when it is sat on.
When not seated, the owner can also change the pug’s coat texture.

To get licked, right click and “sit” on the object.
Your AV will cycle through the animation and automatically be unseated.

━ 2. Sleepy Treater
This is a decorative rezzed mesh item.
Click on it to get a resize and texture change menu for the pug and blanket.
You can also turn on or off the pug’s animation cycle.

━ 3. Pug Wagon
This is a worn avatar accessory that will animate your avatar’s arm to hold it.
You can also click on the wagon to get texture menus for both pugs and the wagon, turn on or off the animations of the pugs and resize it.
━━━━━━━━━━ ◐ COMMONS ◑ ━━━━━━━━━━

━ Companion Pugs (8, 9, 10, 11)
These are worn animated avatar accessories.
Right click them in your inventory and choose “Add.”
If for some reason they get added to the wrong attachment point, you will want to right click on them and choose “Attach to” and then “Avatar Center”.
You will need to reposition them to match where your avatar’s feet touch the floor.
These will walk, run, and idle through various animations along with your avatar.

━ Wanderer Pugs (12, 13, 14, 15)
These pugs are meant to be rezzed to let run around!
Drop them out on the ground and click them to begin. You will get options for radius, wander and sound.
Sound turns your pug’s barking on or off.
Radius sets the distance in which you pup can wander from the point where you turn it ‘on’.
Wander turns your animals ‘on’ and lets it run around!
Turning off wander on your animals should return it to its original starting position.

━ Held Pug (16, 17, 18, 19)
These are worn animated avatar accessories that will override your arm animation.
They default to your right arm, but if you attach them to your left fore arm they will automatically swap to animate that arm instead and vice versa. You may need to reposition your pug in your arm if you swap arms.
You can click on your pug to get a menu for textures for the flower, resizing and to turn animations on or off.
