Mini update and where to shop this month!

This month does not look that great for me.

With the exception of getting to go to see Jason Bourne at the movies for my rl birthday, I don’t think August is turning out to be a good month.

– My dad has spent roughly the equivalent of a week in the hospital. He was hospitalized the end of last month, got released after several days, and then went back after he didn’t take his meds.

– The recent heatwave we had has made my room unbearable to be in, never mind focusing long enough to get any significant work done. My room is easiest the hottest place in the house.

– As a result, I haven’t been able to sleep that well. It seems like I can sleep pretty much anywhere else. For instance, the other night I slept on the living room couch…was able to fall asleep a lot faster for some reason.

– For the last several days, I have been dealing with a sore & scratchy throat. Tea, lozenges, honey, water, vitamins…all so it won’t progress further. This weekend I have been coughing a lot as well😦

One thing I have been doing this month is a LOT of shopping and browsing. There are so many sales on the grid this month, even I had a hard time keeping up.

The outfit is from paper arrow co, who is at the Whimsical event. The event lasts until September 8th, so you still have time to shop ^^ I also got a dress by Storybook as well.

Ghee at the 2016 Aloha Fair

Hey guys! I had mentioned earlier that I would do another post on the Aloha Fair, and here it is! Ghee is another store that is currently at the Aloha Fair. It started July 27th, and it ends on August 10th.

Are you interested in modeling? Ways to improve your blog?

Hey guys! I know I have spoken to a few people about this already, but next month I will be teaching courses at Miss SL Academy! This is great for those who always wanted to learn how to model in Second Life, but wasn’t sure if it’s for them. Also, you will be able to learn (or improve on) a skill set that can be applied to every day Second Life. I will be holding sessions on August 4th  and August 11th. Those are two Thursday dates. There are other days and times too , but you would need to check the calendar under Academy – > Schedule.

Next month, I will be teaching the following topics:

An Artful Display

Hello! Today I wanted to play with dark lighting again. You can look at some of my previous attempts here and here.

I had bought the Lelutka hair from Hair Fair (which ends soon, so go there), and was already wearing a swimsuit from Ghee. You can find it at the Aloha Fair, which I have blogged about in my last post. I will be doing another post soon so you can see more of the swimsuit, along with other items Ghee is offering. So once I had the hair and the swimsuit, I added some accessories. I really liked Chop Zuey’s Black Night, Silver Moon from the Vincent in Aries collection. The choker especially seemed to polish my overall look. I really liked the contrast the black stones had with the silver.

Aleutia at the 2016 Aloha Fair

Hey guys! The Aloha Fair is back for 2016! Last year I did a full sim coverage, but I do not have time to do that this year. If you could see my to-do list…hehe. This year the event will run from July 27th – August 10th.

Aleutia is a new store that is at the Aloha Fair this year, and I am happy to showcase some of the items that you will see at the fair.

There are two exclusives from Aleutia at the Aloha Fair. The first is the Summer Melody Halter Top & Maxi Skirt set. There are 12 prints to be purchased separately, or as a fatpack. The outfit is mesh body friendly. If you do not see your mesh body size, you can always try on different sizes to see which one best fits your body. For instance, I wear the Maitreya Lara mesh body. So I was able to wear the Maitreya top and a size S/M for the skirt (depending on what shape I used).

My Mblieu Fantasy

Hey guys! Between the weather and my sinuses, I have felt sluggish when it comes to blogging. So many ideas, but can’t seem to stay focused on minute details for too long. Luckily I have been feeling better, so now I can blog ^^

I had the idea of doing a fantasy styling & photo, with two items of interest: Chop Zuey’s Mblieu, Mblieu, Mblieu Jewelry set and Ghee’s Prom Gown.

Chop Zuey debuted its Fae Kingdom Collection at the Faery Tale Show with Vero Modero, featuring the Mblieu multi pieced set. It comes with a necklace, bracelets, claw bracelets, earrings, earring cuffs, eyebrows, and headdress.

Creative Forum @ Indie Teepee with Trouble Dethly and Delicate Flower

Hey guys! I have 2 topics of interest today. First, I wanted to share with you all my new profile picture! I normally change it once a season, but I hadn’t changed my last photo since October. So, here it is!

Moni-Summer-2016_01111web3
Hair: =DeLa* “Sahara” Browns  (@ Uber)

Skin:Glam Affair – Luna skin – Jamaica
Makeup: [mock] Bonjour Matte Lipstick [Turkish Rose]
[mock] Glitter Pop Eshadow in Jeweled Lake
Jewelry: Chop Zuey: The Dirty Shepherdess Necklace 
Earthstones: EarthStones The Diamond Stud – Pear/Gold
Top (also got the pants but not seen): Hucci Yebil Top – Midnight (@ Uber)

 

The second (and much longer) topic I would like to talk about is about Indie Teepee. One of my friends informed me that there was a discussion panel at Indie Teepee featuring Delicate Flower & Trouble Dethly on July 12th at noon SLT. I have had the pleasure of meeting Trouble before, and I have seen Delicate around the grid and on Plurk. So, I thought it would be interesting to head on over to see what was happening.

I was not sure on what Indie Teepee was about. We have so many events that come up, and we run to shop and purchase items. But many of us do not take the time as to why the event was created. I grabbed this from Scarlet Schadenfreude (evelynscarlet)’s picks, who is the Founder / Creative Director of Indie Teepee.

“Just as Second Life is a home to so many people from all walks of life, Indie Teepee aims to be the roof under which these same people may discover, enjoy and appreciate the diversity and creativity that could only previously be experienced in the real world.

Indie Teepee brings people together through their love of song and art – breaking down barriers and providing a haven for music genres like indie, alternative, rock, electronic dance music and hiphop. This year, we take it a step further to include theatre performances, photography exhibitions, a feature-length machinima and a creative forum.

The success of our inaugural event in 2015 has inspired us to make sure that 2016’s Indie Teepee is a far more welcoming and cosier dwelling for everyone. In this home, there are no strangers, just friends you haven’t met yet.”

According to the moderator, Chris (nathanaelwest), today we would hear from both
Trouble Memphis Dethly (trouble.dethly) and Delicate T. Flower (awylder1) on their day-to-day lives & motivations for their creative outlets. Trouble is the founder of Eclipse Magazine, and Del is the co-owner of Seraphim (Heidi Halberstadt is the other co-owner).

What I did was to attempt to summarize what was said (on voice) during the hour. I tried to keep it as accurate as possible.
