Care for a Midnight Snack?

…and chat? I’ve been thinking about my eyes lately.  I rarely credit my eyes because I wear eyes from a store that closed a long time ago. Sometimes I’m glad because it means that no one  (or few people ) will have them, and then it annoys me because you would think after several years, I would be able to find an “updated” pair of eyes. You can check out my last post if you want to see my regular eyes.

 

Vanna - Blacklace Lingerie - Second Life
Hair: *Milk* Hair~Santana (50L sale at Soonsiki for re-brand to Besom)

Lingerie: Blacklace Vanna Bra set in Peach (Maitreya Lara mesh body +Omega appliers)
Skin: Glam Affair – Cleo – Jamaica
Eyes – IKON Promise Eyes  – Industrial
Pose: Exposuer
Location: The Manor Suites

I did a post a while back when I was actively looking for eyes. I decided not to make a change. Recently I went looking and found IKON Promise Eyes. I spent a while looking in the store for not only the type of eyes, but the color of eyes. After some time I found that I really liked the Industrial and Nymph eyes. Here is a close up of them both:

Ikon – Promise eyes – Industrial

Ikon – Promise eyes – Nymph

 I think the blueness of the Nymph eyes matches my old eyes the closest, and the mixture of colors in Industrial gives it the darker look that the other eyes have (at least to me). But the latter makes my eyes look more green than blue (it looks to be a combination of blue, green, and a hint of brown), so I am not sure if I will keep these eyes.

What do you guys think? What are some of your favorite stores for eyes? Feel free to leave me a comment! ^^

 

Free Gifts this Weekend

Hey guys! I wanted to let you know of some goodies that I found around the grid this weekend in Second Life. I don’t know who can pass up a free gift – can you?

Bubbles released this lovely hair to group members this weekend – both subscriber and inworld group. I like the soft pink color – it’s not like neon pink that’s in your face. I got my necklace at We <3 Roleplay for only 10L.

Zerkalo Group Gifts - Second Life

I found out about zerkalo both from this month’s Shiny Shabby and from this month’s issue of We Love to Decorate.  The store has 3 group gifts currently in their store. This will definitely help you furnish your place if you need that something extra.

 

Besom - Soonsiki - Group Gift - Second Life

I think everyone has head of the famous 50L sale at Soonsiki, soon to be Besom. But did you know there was a current group gift as well? I still have to get more hairs from the sale…

 

Pink Acid - groupt gift - lips - second life

I already have this one, but just in case you didn’t know, Pink acid has free lipstick at their store.

That’s all the things that I saw in my adventures on the grid, but I will let you know if I find more goodies ^^

Just Resting my Eyes

I had heard that It All Starts with a Smile was back open, so I decided to go check it out. It is now on the Tramonto sim. While exploring I chatted with a couple of people. The last time I was there I did not see anyone. I suggest that all of you guys should come check it out – great for taking pictures or to just take a break from what you are doing.

Necklace: Chop Zuey – Gloriana Purple Necklace
Shirt: E-Clipse Dorothy Shirt – Acqua (@ May’s Shiny Shabby)
Jeans: Maitreya Flare Jeans
Raft: :CP: Nairn Summer Raft (PG)

 The new round of Shiny Shabby starts tomorrow (so don’t kill me when you can’t get in yet). I decided to show you guys some of the things that they have this time around. I’m into tousled hair lately, so Tableau Vivant is great for that sort of thing. And I liked the ruffled collar and the open back (sorry you can’t see of the Dorothy shirt.

 There are people who say that all bloggers do is to talk about the positive aspects of the things that they blog about, and nothing negative. I will say that an issue that I struggle with now is

1. What mesh clothing will go with other mesh clothing that I am wearing?
and
2. What mesh clothing will go with my Maitreya Lara body?

Even finding pants to go with the shirt that I am wearing AND my mesh body was tricky.  No wonder there are people who have not embraced mesh as of yet. As I said before, from now on when I look for clothing, I look to see can it fit my mesh body. I assume that it can fit my system one (wouldn’t THAT be funny if it didn’t?), so I don’t try it on that body for the most part.

Happy Shopping!

Join Hands for Nepal

Many of us know about the recent earthquakes in Nepal. A group of Second Life residents have decided to help in the efforts to give aid.

(taken from http://www.scala-sl.com/join-hands-for-nepal/)

JOIN HANDS FOR NEPAL, organized in Second Life© by Valsnia and Ruby Ornamental, has partnered with World Food Program (the Asian branch of this UN Organization) – May 2015.

Join Hands for Nepal - Second Life

Founded in 1961, The World Food Programme (WFP) is the food assistance branch of the United Nations and the world’s largest humanitarian organization addressing hunger and promoting food security.

With the magnitude of the Earthquake in Nepal the WFP immediate put together its Nepal Earthquake response cell and has been quickly moving to support the survivors.

WFP has three main goals under its Nepal earthquake response:
1) deliver food to survivors and those who need it most.
2) provide emergency operation assistance on a massive scale.
3) help the humanitarian aid community with relief hub services.

WFP needs US $116.5 million to provide food for 1.4 million people for three months , which translates to US $27 for a person for the entire month until they are able to stabilize and organize their own means of sustenance.

Spring is for Butterflies

 Hey guys! I was inspired by this post while cleaning my inventory ^^ For once I decided to be daring and downloaded the beta version of the Firestorm viewer. I had heard that you could filter your inventory to show items that were older than X days. As you know, after so many days the inventory would simply stop showing the items if you went too far back.

I managed to clear out 5k items in 3 hours. It was relatively easy because with everything being mesh nowadays, all of those system layer clothing and prim furniture can go buh-bye! Sorting out “5 years and older” items wasn’t that bad, but I only managed like a quarter of the “4 years and older” items before I got tired. Anyway, I found this cute hat from Lillou’s Designs and combined it with a pink nurse’s hat from katat0nik. Pairing them from some of ghee’s latest fashion line for the season had some pretty desirable results!
