My sister PB gave me the keys to her house while she’s away and said make yourself at home and so I did.   I should send her a note letting her know she needs to make a pit stop on her return trip to restock her liquor cabinet.

In the meantime… “Salud!”

Cheers also for the new combat boots that (epia) has released for this round of FaMESHed.  The boots are mesh and 3D modeled to fit and come with 8 choices in texture for the boot and 3 for the metal.  They can also be re sized by HUD or manually.

The fierce protector

It’s not very common for me to wear coats in this fashion in real life as we just don’t have that kind of weather for it.  Casual is the norm and even in the winter, which if you know the southern part of the state of Florida, it’s mildly less hot than at other times of the year.   It’s why dressing up in Second Life has its perks.  Alright. We just like playing dress up.

The rigged mesh coat is from MoDANNA and is currently available at Fashion Fair that runs only until the 15th of October.  There are 8 colors to choose from and it’s reasonably priced at $179 lindens.

The other thing that I want to share is that Apple Fall still has some fantastic discounted items at the main store.  The chairs in the background and the building are both $0 lindens currently at the store.  You really can’t beat that price!

Aphrodite -unKindness 002

Well it looks like this month is pretty much over now and with it many events are coming to an end.  This also means soon there is an onslaught of new events about to embark and it being October… it also brings Halloween.

Aphrodite Shops has an abundance of items at their Halloween Market if you are into decorating for this occasion.  The animated ghoulish mirror and the scary stories book are just a couple of items you can find.

Then unKindness has a charmed parlor set available currently at Collabor88, that includes the candles, burner, fireplace, mirror and throne chairs.  The latter three items have six color options.  The hanging bats and single bat that can be worn as well is from Dysfunctional Designs.

As always details all found below.

Found the cookies!

Cookies 010

Doing a quick post this evening to show a few items for the toddleedoo.   The first are these dinosaur pajamas that BoOgErS made for the Gen-Neutral event, which ends tomorrow so you still have a little time to grab them at a great price. There are two options available for you to choose from.

Over the past weekend I made two batches of peanut butter cookies, which amounted to about four dozen.  So it made me chuckle as I was doing up this scene as I recalled the amount of cookies I had in the last days.  I’m glad they’re all gone now.   This cute “found the cookies” pose is by Buglets and is available at the main store.

There are a couple of items that I picked up today for kids Fifty Linden Friday like the peg board toy and the black sneakers, which are a part of a complete outfit.  You can find all the details below.

My little pumpkin

003

It’s definitely starting to look like Fall in Second Life with all the orange, yellows and red colors you see around.  I’m featuring a few new items by unKindness to help you decorate for the season.

The County Pumpkin set, which can be found at the Tres Chic event includes the pumpkin seat, pumpkin accessories on the floor and the candle tray on the table. The seat comes with male and female sit animations.

Another item by unKindness is the spooky brigade decor that is leaning up against the wall made for the Autumn Effect Hunt.  You can hunt for it at the main store.

The other item that I am featuring today is the big baggy hoody outfit for the toddleedoo made by BoOgErS for the Kawaii Project.  The big baggy hoody outfit is available in two options.

The rest of the decor is listed below.

It happens

Epia 016

This is a bit of  the rebellious nature I find myself in shining through in this post as I share with you some more items to be found during this month’s round of events.

Both the fringe suede top and skirt by MoDANNA are mesh and found at two different ongoing events right now.   There are several colors for both items and you will also find other styling pieces as well so that you can tailor fit your style.

The other item that I am featuring today is the workbench by (epia) available at this round of The Men’s Department.  While it has single and couple animations I decided to use a different pose as I wanted to make sure that the clothes were highlighted as well.

Jian 015

I had hoped to get this blog out first thing in the morning, though good intentions don’t always work out.   I have had one of those debilitating headaches most of the day and finally succumbed to taking a pain killer to ease the intensity.

Most of you already know Jian for their quality home and garden items for most genres in Second Life.  Now you’re in for a treat as they start to expand their line under JianJAM, which is their division for jewelry, accessories, apparel, shoes and a whole lot more.   Today I’m wearing a dress that they created for the Mix Event, which runs until August 31st.  The dress as you see me wearing is a tube dress and is available at the main store.  It comes in three different patterns and each pattern comes in 7 different colors, so that’s a lot of choices for you to pick from.

I truly love this necklace from !dM, or also known as deviousMind.  There’s just something really sexy about a necklace that hangs down your back and was the perfect accessory for this dress.  You can find it currently at Genre in several colors.

It’s time to be happy

Snapshot_052

The song Summer Nights from the movie Grease seems to float to my mind when I do a summer post.  It’s got some cute lyrics.. summer loving had me a blast, oh yeah.. summer loving happened so fast… met a boy cute as can be… summer days drifting away.. and so on. Chuckles. I think popcorn is awaiting me soon.

Showing another hair from the Hair Fair.  This one is from Pr!tty and what really drew me to it was the long stresses of hair that go off to the side. It just felt and looked very natural to me that I couldn’t resist making it one of my first purchases.   I was happy too as it wasn’t until recently that I found myself being able to wear this designer’s hair again. I must have a big forehead as most of the hairs didn’t fit and required that I make changes to it and my face is the one body part that I do not like to change when it comes to making small modifications to my shape.

I’m wearing one of the Canicule Collection bikinis by MoDANNA that is available at this new round of anyBODY, an event that is geared towards everything applier.  It is an applier bikini and there are appliers for just about all the mesh bodies and more including clothing layers.   I’m wearing the banana version though you can find many colors to even mix and match.

The other item I want to point out is this new summer cabana by Aphrodite.  The “Summer Happy Place” is available at Swank, a new monthly event on the grid.  It has well over 100 animations and has a land impact of 15 and comes with rezzable props.

All the right fixes for a summer loving of your own and maybe you’ll meet a cutie too.
