New Round @ 68 Main!

I was walking around the Utakata sim to find good places to take my photos. It is set up for fall, and there was actually an Asian shopping event there.

Today I am featuring Chop Zuey’s Gold Digger jewelry set and Legendaire’s DG coat and Harmani boots.

KittyCatS 2015 Advent Calendar – free gifts for all!

Hey guys! I’m here to let you know of another advent calendar in Second Life. KittyCatS now has their Advent Calendar out at the KittyCatS sim.

“Each day, from December 1st through the 24th, a new gift will be available on our Advent Calendar, culminating in a special gift from KittyCatS! to all of you on December 24th. There are even some special gifts for your KittyCatS too! And the best part is the gifts will stay available, all through the month of December! So even if you miss a day or two, you can still go back and pick up your gifts.”
PurpleMoon and KittyCatS advent calendars 2015 - second life

Eve is helping me again by showing us three items – the je suis FelineS Christmas clutch in gold, Amacci mesh Stargazer eyes and Simon hair, and the WoW Skins for the advent calendar in tan. Now, the skin is bare faced, so you can add your own makeup to make you stand out a bit. Eve is wearing makeup from mock cosmetics and Glamorize – both having very affordable makeup.

Days 8 and 9 - Snowflake Sweater and Venice jewelry in white

Eve is also wearing Days 8 and 9 from the PurpleMoon advent calendar. My previous post has been updated to reflect the recent additions.

What are some other advent calendars that you would like to see featured? I know there are many out there, but which ones do you feel need more shine because of the AWESOME items that they have? Let me know in comments ^^

Social Media Meme

Multitasking by the pool

New meme – all about social media! I have been multitasking today – blogging, working on a few projects, and will help a friend with a RL paper after I finish this post. Phew! 🙂

All of my answers are geared towards SL. I do have a Facebook, but it’s not SL based and I use it for gaming and keeping track of close rl friends (because they kept bugging me for my FB link! 😛 )

1. What was the first social network you joined using your SL Avatar?

Probably Flickr…I have pictures from 2010 that I can’t view because I’m not pro…pfft.

2. Which social networks are you currently on using your SL Avatar?

Flickr
Plurk
Google+
Pinterest
Second Life Profile
2ndHub

I have been meaning to get a Facebook page, but haven’t had the push for it yet. Maybe sometime soon.

3 & 4. Which network is your favorite/ least favorite?

Based on usage, Plurk / 2ndhub. It’s like day and night with the amount of activity.

5. Which network do you have the most amount of connections?

I think Plurk…

6. What are your favorite social networking apps? (if applicable)

I don’t have a smartphone 😦

7. What do you like most about social networking sites?

The amount of information available and shared among people, and the community that forms as a result of it. I have seen a lot of good done in a short amount of time that  10-15 years ago would have taken a lot of time and money just to get the word out to people.

8. What do you like least about social networking sites?

Information spreads; misinformation spreads rapidly. So many people believe what they read without fact-checking for themselves that it is scary. You can really destroy someone’s reputation using social media, and I don’t think people should have that ability if it’s for catty reasons.

9. Do you feel social networks are a good way to promote you/your brand/your work?

Just like anything else, you get out what you put in. If you spend minimal time on the network, then you won’t get much back. But if your followers can identify with you because you share information that helps them get to know you, then absolutely.

10. What is your main reason for using Social Networks?

To stay informed as to what is happening in SL. Also to make friends, but I don’t think I have been that successful in that aspect. I know someone who devotes a lot of time on Flickr going to people’s profiles and commenting on pictures. Then when an unfortunate situation happened between her and a designer and she posted it on Flickr, the feedback was huge. She was even surprised that many people responded and put her picture in their favorites to spread the word.

What do I mean by successful? I guess for the most part, when you make a post to share information, you get feedback of some sort. When you make friends, you generally expect feedback within that group of people, and vice versa. When you don’t hear from them in a while, you check their profile to see if everything is okay, and ask other people about them.  I haven’t quite gotten there yet, and I won’t use this post to go into details. But you can always ask me if you want 🙂

By the way – a couple of the items that I have on are from the Pink Fusion hunt. Some items were tricky to find, so search carefully.

Have fun guys!

Spring Flower @ Neva River

 

Hey guys! I picked up Meg’s group gift from the notices the other day, and I really liked what she had for us this month. So I decided to go back to Neva River to take pictures. Normally I would include landmarks, but since this sim won’t be open to the public for much longer, I don’t see the point in crediting it.

Spring Flower is a blouse paired with high-waist shorts; a solid golden beige top and a patterned bottom. Doesn’t it look like a bodysuit? The bottom part reminded me of the Tabula Rasa jewelry from Chop Zuey, so I added the earrings and necklace to the outfit, along with some other pieces.

The Mystery of Owls ring is on sale now at Chop Zuey. All proceeds will go towards the Wold Wildlife Federation until May 31, 2013. I got the ring for free at the “Don’t Hurt Me!” event on Saturday, which served to raise awareness towards animal cruelty.

See you next time guys!

The 12 Days of Christmas @ Chop Zuey

The Galaxis set at Chop Zuey  – earrings & necklace

Hey guys! I wanted to let you know about one of my favorite holiday events in SL – Chop Zuey’s 12 days of Christmas. This is a special store event where loyal Chop Zuey fans get a gift every day for 12 days. My first Christmas with Chop Zuey was back in 2010. I think I saw Belle’s jewelry somewhere on the feeds and I visited the store. Then they started talking about the 12 Days of Christmas and to join now because there would be a group fee in January. Of course I joined – and never regretted it. I am truly amazed on her generosity this time of year. She even have gifts if you are not in the group, and gifts for men.

These are the other two gifts – I’m pretty sure you can tell which one is which. Ladies I strongly recommend that you get the men’s gifts – remember that all of the jewelry can be re-sized to fit you properly. Here’s another tip…when using the resizer, try not to have on other CZ jewelry at the same time. I have found at times if I am resizing my necklace, my earrings will randomly resize and will get messed up.

Until next time guys!

M.O.C.K Cosmetic Lipshines

Hello everyone! Today Mockie from [mock] Cosmetics told us that she had some awesome lipshines in her store – 11 for only 100L! She said the huge discount will not last forever, just until she finishes the vendor ads ^^ If you are wondering what’s in the box, I will show you exactly what you are getting.

This is my normal lip shade, with some of Mock’s Demerara Shadow-Dark Pink eye shadow. The skin I am wearing is from Pink Fuel – Elly’s maple tone in Angelic.  I wanted a hairstyle that would have my hair pulled back, so Amacci‘s Simone in Dark Brown did the trick. For those who are wondering, yes I did tweak my lips a bit. I was playing around with my shape because I was wearing an Al Vulo skin, and wanted to see how it would look with fuller lips.

Click on the photos to see them in a bigger size.

Bellini, Blushing Contessa, Burnout

Charm Pink, Dark Tapestry, Hippie Pink

Intertwined, Rose Taupe, Ruby Ruby

Sanguine, Watermelon

Which one is you favorite? I am still deciding on mine…

52 Weeks of Color Challenge – Dark Raspberry

Week Eight: Dark Raspberry

February 19 – February 25

This has not been my week – am not feeling the greatest in RL, and my mood is affecting my level of enjoyment in SL  So this week  I think I just want to stay at home…make some soup and relax. Maybe JB wants some food too…

I went for comfort for this week’s Dark Raspberry color. By the way, I love this color because I gravitate towards berry and wine for my makeup, not to mention the fact that I love drinking wine ^^ This tank is from LOULOU&CO – I usually go there to look at the different piercings they have.

I’ve been looking for the perfect kitchen for my dream house. If you saw the link, obviously this kitchen from Bazar won’t go with it that well (too small). But it’s a perfect fit for this current house. The kitchen comes with a bar, and there is a cute breakfast table also on marketplace that I have.

Oh – soup’s ready! Time to drink up – I’ll talk to you guys soon 🙂

12 Days of Lingerie – Days 3-6: Mixed Bag

Wow – I have been slacking off so far in this challenge to showcase 12 different items, huh? I had to go digging in my closet, but I think I have something for you all 😉

So, what do we have here?

Lingerie - second life

Remember I said in December that I may show you guys some of the stuff that I got for Christmas and my rez day? This cute Ange Golden Satin lingerie from Insolence really made me happen when I opened up my presents. Metallic gold that feels nice against your skin? Win!

lingerie - second life

I got this Jadey in Red lingerie at Carrie’s last year around Valentine’s day. I know some people get rid of old items, but this one is way too pretty to throw away.

Even without the accompanying bustle, Madame from Erotique Designs is still one of the nicest lingerie that I have in my closet. It has 3 levels of naughtiness, ranging from full coverage (shown here) and revealing.

This lace shelf bra and panty set  from Hucci makes a nice surprise for anyone who sees it! If you need sexy time with your significant other, just have this on underneath your clothing when they pull it off you. I guarantee you that it will get hot REALLY fast 😉
