I Got Your Number

…but do you have mine? That’s the real question – ha! 

Another event I would like to share with you is the 30/31 event. According to the website, “This event is designed to promote 2D, 3D, and decorative arts and to introduce people to the amazing artists of Second life! The goal is to bring people to you!”

Chop Zuey is one of the creators that is participating in this event. “I Got Your Number” is a necklace and earring set that is stylish, yet playful to wear for any fashionista.

Here’s to lessons learned and good times

I’ve been a bit preoccupied lately. I had the opportunity to help with the Miss Teen Avi Pageant this month – both as a judge and a backstage manager for the final show. It was a wonderful experience for me. I was able to meet the lovely young ladies that were in the pageant, and gained some knowledge about what goes on behind the scenes.

Blacklace gets a revamp!

Hello everyone! For those who do not know, the Blacklace sim has made some renovations  – their main store as well as the stores surrounding it. I will say that the sim does not feel as laggy as it did in the past. After looking around, it seems like re-organizing the store has cut down on any clutter or non-essential items on the sim. In addition, finding your favorite Blacklace item is much easier. For those who are looking for items that are compatible for their body, this layout will make it MUCH easier to find items.

Meet Kismet!

Hey guys! I wanted to show you a skin that was created by alaskametro for Skin Fair 2016 – called Kismet. It is on the marketplace now with more appliers than what was available at Skin Fair.

“Blended handdrawn/photosource elements and optimized for mesh bodies and heads (but, you can also wear this on your Classic avatar!) “Kismet” comes in 8 skintones and features between 2-4 brow colours in a thick, natural style, plus 1 eyeshadow and 3 lipsticks. Freckled and cleavage versions included.”

If you bought Kismet  before the update and would like appliers for Loudmouth, Belleza, and Maitreya, just IM Alaska Metropolitan.

Reflect and Refresh for the new month

Today I decided to the the word prompt of the day from The Daily Post.

Refresh

Write a new post in response to today’s one-word prompt.

I feel that refresh is the right word for today, because it is the end of March. For me, spring is here, and we have set our clocks to reflect Daylight Saving Time (DST). I also believe another F word, “reflect”applies, for how can we refresh ourselves without reflecting on what has already been done?

In January, I had made some goals for myself that I spoke about here. So since this is the end of the third month of the year, let’s review my progress, shall we?

1. Work and create my own projects to work on

I have some real life events coming up soon, so I am trying to not take on more activities. However, I did have a talk with someone about starting a social club for singles. We have a lot of ideas for activities, but we are taking it slow. If you would like more information, you can contact ClariceRose inworld and tell her how you found out about it.

2. Patronize more SL businesses.

I have been back to the Terrace Lounge and Grille restaurant, took pics, etc. but have not blogged about my recent experience. Andrew was our server and he was great…he even added chicken to the menu this time ^^ If I still have my notes, I will make another review post. Otherwise I will have to go back😀 I did promise a friend that I would take her out to eat once she got her new computer.

3. Meet and befriend more people, and strength current friendships.

I think I am doing that? One person that comes in mind is someone where we blogged for a major SL charity event earlier this year. I felt the experience brought us closer, and I am happy for that. And also see #1.

The Allure of Female Dominance

The other day I was asked by a guy whether I was a dominant woman, because I “looked” like one.  I told a friend, and after taking note of what I was wearing said, “It’s a lace top and a mini[skirt]”.

So that got me thinking – how do we perceive someone to be “dominant”?

FFL-pics-2_009remix111web(click here to view on Flickr)

This is a photo that I took in on of the skyboxes over at the Manor Suites. They have a nice dungeon scene, and I decided to sit in this lovely chair and treat myself to a few puffs on a pipe as I pondered on my question.

Is it their confidence? How they look? Words that they use? How their words affect others? Their physical stance and attributes?

Some people may say that how I am dressed in my photo would definitely make me look like I am dominant. Dressed in black, laced thigh high boots, hair pulled up and out of my face, and the look on my face could give off those signs. Others may see what I am wearing as an invitation to exert control over me because I am a woman that is showing skin, or simply because they perceive me to be a challenge.

On the other hand, if I were perceived as being submissive, could that give me an advantage? If you know how someone will act because of their assumptions, could you not manipulate the situation to be in your favor? If that is the case, could someone who represents him or herself to be submissive actually be dominant in certain situations?

Destination KiLu: Countryside Relaxation

Hi guys! I am currently on location at KiLu!

KiLu is on an adult homestead sim, which guarantees that there will never be a crowd of people on the sim at the same time. I decided to relax in this hammock after looking around.

geniune_00421
When I arrived, there was a notecard with the following information:

We’re a pretty laid back seasonal, countryside Sim and wish nothing more than for you to relax and have a wonderful, carefree time while visiting.

There’s a few rules we hope you’ll respect while at KiLu.

– While you do have rez rights here, we ask that you please refrain from rezzing anything other than pose balls or pose props for photos.

– Treat everyone with respect at KiLu, no griefing please!

– Any questions or issues on the sim please feel free contacting Kimbra Iridescent.

If you happen to snap some photos here, we’d love to see them!

So if you are looking to take pictures, hang out and relax, or spend time with a loved one, make KiLu your next destination ^^

Sinuses and Poison Darts

My left eye has been bothering me over the last several days, and it’s only today that I feel up to doing any blogging. I’ve been doing an eye exercise on my Android called Eye Care Plus – it’s only been a full day and I can feel my eyes are a bit better.

 

Du Jour - Second Life

I wore this the other day when I went to a fashion show rehearsal. I love the primary yellow and blue colors in the dress. I figured posing against a red background would add some dimension to the look.  You can learn more about how to do color combinations here. I got the link and some more information at Model’s Workshop – one of the Fashiondish chats hosted by Sabine Mortenwold.

Du Jour - Second Life
Du Jour is having a closing sale that will go on until the end of this month. According to the notecard that was sent:

“Du Jour is now closing its doors for good and the sale will end on April 1st. Du Jour was featured in PENUMBRA Fashion Week, SOLARIS Fashion Week, and other notable events during its 1 year run.

Until April 1st, you can get all Du Jour both female and male products for just 75L each. Everything in the store is marked drastically down, even the gachas which are now 35L a play. There’s plenty for guys and girls!

Tell your friends and family and get a good shopping spree night going! Plus while you’re here be sure to grab all the gifts, no group required to get them.
Now’s the time to get high fashion for extremely low prices! “
