Baywatch

I don’t know about you but when I was a kid watching Baywatch I dreamed of one day being one of those beautiful, brave lifeguards. Maybe without all the drama surrounding them but they were gorgeous. I guess I should be thankful that SL allows me to live out some of my fantasies huh?

When I got this lingerie set from Vinyl I immediately thought of Baywatch. It is a leather lingerie set and is available at the main store location but doesn’t it also look like the perfect bikini? This set is fit for Maitreya, Belleza and Slink.

Good Girls

According to this song, good girls are bad girls who just haven’t been caught. I’m not sure if I completely agree with that, but who am I to disagree? I started putting this look together, each piece slowly falling into place until I had an awesome scene. Thank you to everyone who created the items I used on this blog I appreciate all your hard work. ♥

I had already decided on the outfit when this lovely new hair from Truth came out. The newest group gift available to the VIPs in the Truth Hair group is simply stunning. This hair comes with a style HUD and is a fatpack of colors, the group is only 350L to join and that’s the cost of one hair. Not only do you get a new hair each month absolutely free, the group is awesome, the members are so much fun and you they will let you share you PG photos that feature Truth Hair, even if you’re not an official blogger for the group.

Canimal released this super cute top and skirt set for Cosmopolitan, they are sold as separate pieces but you can purchase the fatpack to easily customize your outfit.

Castle on the Hill

I have been blogging a lot! Mostly because I’m inspired, and partially because I am bored out of my mind. If you’d asked me three months ago if I’d be living in my mom’s basement, still unable to find a job I would have told you no way! I honestly don’t know why I can’t find a job, I don’t know if it’s because I am applying for positions that I far too overqualified for or what. I think a lot of people see my two-plus years as a store manager and wonder if I will be happy being a subordinate again. I WILL! Just give me a job. Anyhow, I digress another day another blog.

I don’t like to waste time if this post is evidence of that. Krescendo is at The Epiphany with this wonderful Cornish Cottage gacha set. This set includes 2 rares and 15 commons. I decorated it up with some other gacha pieces and outdoor furniture I’ve gotten over the years, some available some not, and the brand new tree from Little Branch at Sense Event. The tree is animated and is seasonal by touch script.

To Be Human

Every time a blogger call goes out, one that requires current bloggers to reapply you wonder to yourself “is this going to be the time I am not accepted back?” This time, however, not only was I accepted, I was offered a spot on the Elite Team of Dark Passions – Koffin Nails. If I am honest with myself, this is something I have worked toward for the past several years I have blogged for BCreative. I just love her nail textures and her willingness to try new things when it comes to appliers. It is such an honor for me to continue on in this capacity as a blogger for such an amazing creator and with such a wonderful team.

Today is Fifty Linden Friday and that means that there are some amazing deals from some of the best creators across the grid. I’ve included a pair of pants from Dead Dollz and shoes from Livalle today. Both of these items are part of the Fifty Linden Friday sale but hurry, you only have today to get them.

I really wasn’t sure the direction I wanted to go with this picture until I decided on this pose from Foxcity, the bad kitty poses gave me the idea to grab this tail and unicorn horn set from Plastik. The set includes the tail, horn, and ears and is available in 5 colors. You can purchase the fatpack set and get so many more options for customization. These are available at the main store location and are unisex.

Last Friday Night

Yesterday was a good day. I received an acceptance from a group I didn’t expect, two actually, plus I got invited to be on the Elite Team of Dark Passions – Koffin Nails. I’ve hoped for this invite for years so it makes me so super happy. When I applied to blog for Krescendo I really didn’t think I had much of a chance, I’m just now getting better with my decor blogging, working toward including decor and landscape only shots to my blog. I enjoy blogging and I feel this is the next evolution of my blog, I just hope that I can meet my own expectations.

Krescendo, I’m actually blogging for them officially. I literally about died when I got the NC giving me acceptance to this amazing group. I first discovered this group last year at a gacha event and I fell in LOVE with the amazing items that they create. I applied to blog one other time but I really didn’t have a good showing of decor and was rejected. When the application opened again I had to apply even though I seriously thought I wouldn’t make it again but I did! Enough about me, this gacha set is available at Man Cave, it includes 2 rares and 17 commons and it totally inspired me to make this man cave. There is a set of wrenches wall decor that I had originally included in the shot, unfortunately, SL being the wonderful place it is they partially derendered so I was forced to edit them out after I couldn’t reset my shot.

Minimal is back at The Epiphany with another amazing set of neon based backdrops. Illuminate includes 9 commons and 1 rare. I took two for this blog and put the bar backdrop inside the garage backdrop to create the base of my man cave.

I woke up this morning to an acceptance to Canimal, I’ve seen their ads on Facebook and kept meaning to pop over to the store and check them out yet I never quite got around to blogging anything. I was very surprised and excited to receive the acceptance because that meant I could blog this amazing set from The Epiphany.

So when I first saw this super cute outfit from Canimal I thought “I need that I need to blog it” then I get an acceptance notecard and literally squealed. Available right now at The Epiphany. This set includes 7 rares and 10 commons. There is a dolly key as well that is the Epiphany Exclusive, you can redeem your points for this key to complete your look.

I needed the perfect dolly hair and what better place to find it then at Doe? So off I went and I found this gacha machine at her store. I went with the pastel pack, which I don’t normally choose but how cute is it with this dress?

The eyes are another gacha available at The Epiphany. From Conviction, this set includes 16 commons and 2 rares, the way they apply you can wear two different colors and I chose a rare blind eye and a common onyx eye.

I guess I didn’t realize until this moment that this whole blog was centered around gachas, unintentional but it works. When I started setting the scene I looked on the MP for items to create a marionette stage. I saw this cool, creepy rabbit from Ionic and decided I wanted the set. I played the machine, got the pieces I wanted and the rest, as they say, is history.

Oh, that’s right, the pose is not a gacha. It is, in fact, a free gift from Serendipity. The best part is no group is needed to grab this 3 pose pack for free.

This is one of two blogs I am going to post today. I took the picture for this blog last night, fully intending on blogging it first thing this morning. Well, I’m a little later getting to it but here it goes.

Powder Pack for January is a little different than past Powder Packs, as previously mentioned in this blog. Starting this month Powder Pack will only release one, starting with Lelutka. You will have from the first of the month until 11:59 pm on the 16th of the month to reserve your pack for only 1500L. On the 17th it will be delivered directly to you with no further work on your part. Forgot to register? You can still buy past pack for the full price of 3000L.

This month Amara Beauty has a lovely new skin, it includes a full skin tone HUD. Avi-Glam has a set of lashes and eyes and The Face has a lovely makeup palette.

Occasionally I take a shot that really comes out the way I envisioned it, when that happens it makes me super happy. This is one of those shots. This is a very simple blog today, only two creators with a variety of items. However, I feel this is one of my best photos, of landscaping at least, that I have ever taken.

I was accepted as an official blogger for Little Branch, you could have knocked me over with a feather. I’ve love Little Branch trees since the first time I discovered them, I don’t know how long ago. These are some of the most realistic trees, grasses, and flowers I’ve ever seen in Second Life and I am so happy I can share them with you.

Today I am sharing Weeping Willow v2, Ginko Tree v2, and Magnolia Tree. All three trees are animated and the willow and Ginko are season change. The Magnolia comes with a pink and blue magnolia in the pack as well as a hill, winter hill, and dry wild grass. I’ve also included a lovely field of tulips.

Sometimes you know exactly how you want your pictures to look and more often than not your vision doesn’t come across in Second Life the way it does in your head. When I first saw this cute bedroom group from Parfait I knew exactly what I wanted it for and the idea was born. After several snaps, choosing a name, reshooting, I finally have a pic I  am proud of.

I am so happy to announce that I’ve been accepted to blog for WoW Skins. For me, I don’t like using the same items over and over again, so the ability to showcase skins from another amazing designer is just awesome. This brand new skin, available at Designer Circle, is based on LAQ Rina and comes in 6 tones. It is omega compatible with face and body, comes with brow, browless, cleavage options in the HUD plus an optional shape is available as well. Shown on LAQ Scarlet MoCap and Maitreya.

This outfit! What can I say about it? Well, to start with it’s a brand new gacha from Lybra.

There are 24 commons and 2 rares in total to win.

 As I was building this scene, even before I’d decided whether to put myself in it or not, I kept thinking to myself “clutter, more clutter” thanks, Adalynne *snickers* Seriously, I had a lot of fun creating this scene and I took a lot of pieces from different creators to do it but all in all I think it turned out pretty well.

On9 is in full force and you still have time to get over there and get some truly amazing items, like this kitchen from Newchurch. This set comes with 10 pieces, all separately so you can move them to the desired position, I chose to create a corner nook with my pieces and added some various gacha pieces and other decor items to complete my look. I’ll get into those in a bit. There are poses built into several of these pieces like the stove and sink.
