Rock of Ages

Rock of Ages 1

The new round of L’Accessoires has some surprises: first of all a new location – so better update your landmarks. L’Accessoires in February has also a lot of items that are for boys or at least pretty unisex. So you have no excuse anymore to spare this event. A few are shown here:

Starting with the fabulous necklace: the Sascha Uomo Necklace from Zibska is wonderful crafted and splendid on details. And same goes with the Divinity Headpiece from Glam Affair that comes in 8 different styles. Might be a little bit extravagant and glam rock-ish, but hey, this is SL. And it is the perfect piece for a unique look. Also the sunglasses are from L’Accessoire: They come from MONS and are available at the venue in 4 different colors.

The skin is the new “Bennet” Skin from FRUK. The style “Rock of Ages” is an offer right now at the current Mens Dept. and it comes with hairbase- and bodyhair-tattoo.

Hello my Sweets!

Today is my first blogpost about the upcoming With Love Hunt ❤ organised by CHIC Managment in Second Life. And this hunt is full of gorgeous gifts. The With Love Hunt ❤ is a special way from the creators to say “Thank you” for the support of their customers throughout the past year.  Each Huntitem will cost you 10L$, but all of them are worth much more than this little amount of Linden Dollars.

For my first blogpost from a series of covering this event, I used the Essences Saga Skin, and the wonderful Paris Black Diamond Necklace from Maxi Gossamer. As you all know, I’m in love with the Essences Lipstick, and today I put on one from the Indy Lipstick Series. My todays hair is again from Dela, and I blogged it already here so this wonderful hair can not be found in the With Love Hunt <3. And the lovley “Bow” Pose is included in the gift hidden at In~Stance for the With Love Hunt <3.

Right after the next image I have preapred all the credits for the items used in this blogpost. Read you on the weekend.

Little House on the Prairie

Little House 1

Hello Sunday! In todays post I will focus on enviroment and stuff that make our virtual lifes comfi and give us a warm and fuzzy feeling inside. Home, sweet home. When I browsed some flickr streams I found an adorable little house as groupgift from a shop I have never heard about – which is not that hard since SL is so big. Sweet Harmony – or short [SH] – give away this way cute little home to their group members. And it is all kind of awesome. I will show you details shortly.

Little House 2

But talking about groupgifts: Behind me is the fabulous Teardrop Bed from Trompe Loeil. And – you guess it already – it is a gift to the subscriber group of Trompe Loeil. It has 4 animations (3 sleeping and one sitting) which are pretty much unisex. I already mentioned the little plants I got from the Lucky Board at Lithium. And again it is a good idea to join this group also, because Lithium has a second Lucky Board that changes every 5 minutes (instead of 30 minutes like the “regular” one).

The painting behind me is from the new Gallery Gift Shop. Again it is from Gabrielle Swindlehurst and it is called “Mountains Of The Moon”. There is one thing about living in second life that always puzzeled me: people seem to spend so much effort for finding the fitting furniture and skyboxes but seem to forget about art. And in my opinion some stunning piece of art makes some plain four walls something like a home. So having that in mind you simply have to go to the Gallery Gift Shop. First you find stunning artworks there and second the pieces are definitely not overpriced – and they also change with every rotation. Just like the other items you can find there.

Little House 3

One word about the outfit I am wearing today: The loose shirt is from NYU and it has absolutely convincing folds and looks just too real to me. The bermuda shorts are from the Mens Dept. – and guys HURRY UP! The August round is closing shortly. The shorts are from 22769 and I especially like the realism and the texturing of those.

But coming back to the house as promised above. You see the pop art painting in my back? Yes – this wall art is part of the whole house – and it gives the whole building such a nice and joyful contrast, especially with the red wall and the curtains which are also a part of the house. The texturing is more then reasonable and there are a billion reasons why you should get this group gift – for me it was definitely when I saw the pop art faces.

The lights above me are from CIRCA and are usually outdoor dandelion lights – but well… for me they work indoor also. The dandelion lights come in 4 sizes from S to XL and they are copy. Shown here is size M. And the chair is also from Trompe Loeil and is the gift in the Homestuff Hunt.

And some final words on the scenery: it is again from Garden Of Dreams. The dreamscene “The Field” is probably the most functionable skydome for people who are just looking for some place to live. Because it basically is – a field. You can do it like I did and put a house inside and you have the perfect enviroment that will definitely stun all your friends. And since the dreamscenes from Garden Of Dreams are also as permanent skyboxes in the package you simply have no reason to live in dull four walls with nothing outside.

Happy Tuesday Sweets,

hope you all have survived Monday, and are still refreshed for a new week.  I for myself feel refreshed, and really relaxed after the past weekend. But, new week … you can’t beat me, even with you putting my workshedule full !

But, I promise to have a little moment from time to time  to show you some of the great finds on the second life grid. My todays look is a mix and match from “HairFair 2012 ” and from the currently swinging Seraphim Turns 1 Birthday Hunt.

And ladys, my dress from Intrepid is really stunning. I love all the details in the elegant shape. Yes, this dress is the  gift from Intrepid, they have hidden in their lovely cupcake for the Seraphim Birthday Hunt. The dress comes in female standard sizing.

But please remeber, that the Seraphim Turns 1 Hunt is a 10L$ hunt, but most of the stores have hidden their cupcakes really easy.

And yes, by now everyone should have reconized, that I’m an Alice Project Fangirl, so it was a must to visit the booth  from Alice Project on Hair Fair 2012. There you will find the Tessa Hair as Freebie. This hair comes with an easy to handle coloring hud, to change your haircolor within a blink of an eye.

That will be all for today my sweets, now sadly some work calls for me, but with so many things currently going on inside second life, I’m sure to read you very soon. Have a great Tuesday and enjoy your shopping spree inworld.

Now isn’t that cool? I found a new store with neat and witty stuff to make your second life just a little bit brighter: Rowena Paine’s Junque Shop has everything you never dreamed of but find irresistible when you see it. In other words – you need everything from this shop! OK – I for myself might skip the earrings, but Rowenas items are adorable and her ideas are brilliant. I got myself this Party Pontoon which was a huntgift for the “Fun to be 5” hunt. But you will find so much more in the store like skyboxes, probs and many stuff more. The animations are reasonable done and somewhat natural.

Mondra already told you about The Amira Gacha Festival – SUMMER BY THE SEA. And hey: Gatcha? Count me in. So I went lucky at Spyralles Gatcha machine and got myself the rare Fractal Scarf “Hapuna”. But to be honest – all fractal scarfs are adorable. The scarfs are wonderful made and can be adjust way easy. I got myself some more things at the festival which I will show you in further posts.

Oh and the bangles are the groupgift from :sey they put out some time ago.
