And now, on to the sexy lingerie! ^^ I tried to get at least one item by each designer, and at least one model. I will say it was harder to get in the photos because I’m used to the models being front and center; rather, they were alternating sides on the runway.

20 Personal SL Questions Meme

Hey guys! It’s time for another meme, brought to you by Strawberry Singh. This one is a cool SL Q&A meme, where I answer a bunch of questions about my SL 🙂

When and how did you discover Second Life? I heard about SL in 2009 through a private forum for another game. We were talking about how the fashion in the game we were playing was lacking, and a number of people said SL fashion was much better.

Did you know about virtual worlds before or was this your first experience with them? Kinda, but nothing like SL.

Has Second Life met your expectations? Does anyone have expectations when coming to SL? That’s hard to answer, to be honest.

If you could teleport back to the first ten minutes of your avatar’s slife, what would you tell yourself?Make an alt, look up blogs based on SL, and tell myself how to get out of Help Island lol.
How long did it take you to master avatar flying and driving vehicles inworld?The only issue I had with flying was that I would sometimes get stuck in buildings due to lag. Road and water vehicles I think I have down; could use more work on air ones. How long? I am not too sure – wasn’t like that was a goal of mine or anything.
Do you have a mystery alt? My close friends know of any alts that I have…assuming that I have any alts 😛
Is your SL avatar a reflection of you, or someone you wished you could be?I feel like everyone’s avatar is a reflection of them to a degree, mine included. I wished I had some of the wardrobe my avatar has lol.
Is there an individual you met in SL that inspired you in your RL? How? I don’t think there is one person in particular who has inspired me in RL. But I do get inspired when I see people bring their SL creations and skills into real life. A magazine publication, a jewelry business, a new job based on SL designs, etc.
Do you feel it is easier to create stronger bonds/relationships with people you meet inworld as opposed to the real world?I feel inworld you have the opportunity to get to know a person from the inside out, which is a good thing. This is why I don’t believe in too much RL stuff the first time I meet someone – why should someone know my real name, see a picture of me, or hear my voice? I can do that in real life lol. I feel like it can be easier to create such bonds, but it is also just as easy to be lulled into thinking that you have a strong relationship when it only appears that way.
Did you ever imagine or believe people could fall in love with someone they never met before Second Life?Yes – I have seen it happen.

How has your perspective of dating changed (or not) since you started playing second life?I feel like if you really want a partner though, you will find someone. They may not be the right person long term but you can find someone for right now. I have had online relationships before, but it seems like SL is the hardest for me to find someone. I think it’s because there are so many things to do in SL, dating is not necessarily a priority, and I haven’t found anyone who shares similar interests with me.
How has your perspective of employment changed (or not) since you started playing second life? I think it’s great that people can actually make a living from things that they create virtually. It’s empowering that you can literally take matters into your own hands and make something happen. I have tried to do that in RL and it’s not as easy as some people make it out to be.
Name three things in both your lives that overlap each other significantly.Creativity, loyalty, and staying true to oneself.
If you could live your life more immersively in a virtual world, would you? (Kind of like the Matrix) On one hand, I think it would be great for education. In the Matrix, Neo spent hours learning how to fight in several fighting styles. On the other hand, if you spend all your time plugged in, what happens to RL social interaction?
How do you think behavior changes for people if they’re inworld vs in real world? Why do you think that is?Eh. People grow virtual balls and have a tendency to say things inworld and on social media that they would be hard pressed to say in real life. I dislike hypocrites, cowards, and bullies, and there seem to be too many around for my liking. It’s like…why choose to be mean to others –are you hurting that badly in real life?
How has second life consumerism changed your perception of spending habits, the value of money, the need to be “bleeding edge” with fashion?My spending habits are pretty reasonable, similar to real life. I try to get stuff that will last and add to my wardrobe, without breaking my bank. Sure I get fun, trendy things too but I don’t want too much clutter. I try to earn enough money in SL to cover tier so if I want to spend RL money for shopping, I can. Earning enough to cover all of my inworld expenses is a goal of mine.
Do you think virtual worlds like SL drive and redefine human interaction or do they narrow and limit it?I think they can do both, if that is what you are looking for. You can easily find a bunch of people who think the way you do, and get stuck. Or, you can choose to expand your horizons and grow as a person.
If technology progressed tomorrow to allow you to send emotions to people the way you’d send text or voice messages, would it enrich your SL experience or infringe on it? I’m going to be pessimistic and say it will probably infringe more than enrich. I can see a lot of anger projection or unwanted advances.

Name three skills you attribute to having learned or honed in second life alone. Blogging, Photoshop, and business management.
If your grand kids googled your Second Life Avatar’s name, would they be intrigued, disgusted, proud or something else? Not too sure – maybe intrigued?

Delicate Elegance

princess_0111

At first I was going to just post the blog with just the photo (Photo pleaser! See previous blog post for details on that), but then I realized that I really wanted to talk about what inspired me to come up with this look.

I had a conversation with one of my friends a while about about how Vanity hair has colors like pink, purple, teal, etc for 60L Weekends instead of the more traditional colors. She had said that the different colors have been helpful in her blogging, and it’s at a discount. So even though I was like, “Yeah right!” I did keep an open mind about the different colors. So, one day I saw the Visionaire hair on sale, and I just knew that I had to get that hair. I would use it somehow, at some time.

The next item was the skin. The skin tone was a bit lighter than what I normally wear, but it was still pretty, and it looked like it could be used as part of a fantasy theme, with the right makeup, of course. The outfit was a bit tricker – I was looking through lingerie when I saw that Carrie’s had a rich turquoise color in the Elegance Silks.

rubs her hands together

Monica, I think we are onto something here!

I think what really sealed the deal was an old makeup from White Widow that I found in my inventory – it went perfectly with what I had on. I tried to use tintable eyebrows to match the hair color to it, but it looked too intense. So then I settled for using the ones that came with the skin – they weren’t that intense…else I would had tried using a blonde eyebrow. I experimented using lipstick, but again the look was too intense – I wanted a soft surreal look to the styling.

Next – location. I had an idea in mind because I had read on Plurk that a sim was closing soon, and from the looks of it, the sim had the right setting that I wanted. But when I tried tp’ing there, it wouldn’t let me. Guess it had already closed 😦 So then I looked in search, and I found Eden Castle. From there it was just a matter of finding the right spot, windlight, and pose.

I was disappointed a bit because I really wanted to get a nice full length shot, but it wasn’t working. But the end result is still great, don’t you think? 😀

Locked up

bad-girl_004Zoe Schoolgirl by Carrie’s Lingerie

Hey guys! I was listening to a couple of Girlicious’ songs (yes I liked them very much lol), and I got inspired to combine the two videos together – bad schoolgirl that needed to be locked up. Carrie has a cute schoolgirl outfit that did the trick just nicely. A friend told me that  “It’s executive lingerie”. Hmm…do I look professional? Hehe…

 

bad-girl_005

I’m personally more of a heels girl than boots, so I chose to wear some from G Field. But I probably would have opted for boots if I was dancing all sorts of moves like the girls did in that video.

bad-girl_006

Is anyone going to let me out of here any time soon? No? Oh well…I guess I can get ready to go to sleep in that bed over there. It looks sort of clean…cleaner than these walls and floor that is.

Week 1. Cotton Candy

Juwella in Pink by Carrie’s Lingerie

Hey guys! I have decided to participate in another blogger’s challenge (and yes, I will do my best to stick it out this time ^^)  – 50 Shades of Sexy. Seems right up my alley, right? According to Shiloh, who came up with the idea,

” Beginning the week of January 13th, and for the next 50 weeks, we will provide you with a wantonly sexy prompt; a word, a phrase, or a lyric. From there, we rely on your smoldering appeal to create and blog the look that you feel best fits the prompt. Then post your photos to the 50 Shades of Sexy Flickr Group!

One seductive photo a week for 50 weeks. Are you woman (or man) enough to take this on? Can you handle it?”

One thing that I like already about this challenge is that all 50 weeks are up at once, so you can start to formulate ideas of what you will do for each theme. You can even do several at a time to make sure you keep up with all the sexiness.

cloudy_015

To help me in this challenge, this sexy number from Carrie’s fits the bill. Juwella comes in several colors, and is part of a series of sales that Carrie is having in her store to help bring in Valentine’s Day. I am also wearing the Lolas tango breasts with this lingerie, which is an option for you to get at the store.

Cotton Candy is sweet, and for some reason I was thinking of a floral perfume that is sweet to smell, and even sweeter to touch…mmm.

Holiday Mandy at Carrie’s Lingerie

Holiday Mandy in Red by Carrie’s Lingerie

Hey guys! The weather is getting colder, but that doesn’t mean we can’t still be sexy ^^ Carrie’s Lingerie is helping us stay sexy in the colder months by coming out with some special items for the 12 Days of Christmas. Holiday Mandy came out during the 4th day of Christmas, and is available in both red and green.

snow_002

Holiday Mandy comes with stockings, a corset, gloves, panties, and a big Santa hat that will keep your head warm. It may give you hat hair, but just flip your hair and swing it a few times and no one will notice…winks

Okay! I know this lingerie will make anyone that wears it hot, but this is ridiculous…I’m going inside for some hot coco – until next time…stay sexy!

Miss Carmen

Carmen in Slate by Carrie’s Lingerie

Hey guys! Carrie has a new release at her store – a lovely set called Carmen. This outfit has a lot of lace, and I would expect no less with Carmen as a name! For those who like corsets, this lingerie has one with satin ribbons to lace up. Carmen also comes with a strapless bra, g-string, and stockings.

Carmen is not a mix-and- match outfit, but you can get it in 6 different colors – something for everyone I would think! I really do love this slate blue color though…yes even more than red :p

Until next time – stay sexy!

Warm up to Novemeber

Wow…it’s already several days into November! I honestly don’t know where the days went, but a lot of things have been happening with me lately – both in SL and RL.

Today I have some more sexy lingerie from Carrie’s Lingerie – Fall Coordinates have arrived in the mainstore, and it’s very hard to decide which ones to mix and match to get your perfect fit. Well…not really that hard – just that you want to buy all of the things 🙂 Below I am wearing the Fall Plaid lingerie, with some extras thrown in there*winks*

Carrie was very generous with this release – you buy one set and you are able to coordinate several looks. Since I came up with several looks, I will try to describe what I am wearing in each photo.

1 – This is the Fall Plaid lace bra and thong, along with matching brown stockings.
2 – Carrie also made matching makeup to go along with the lingerie (I love makeup!) so I am wearing the Fall leaf full makeup in Brick.
3 – This is the tan garter and stockings combination from the Fall Plaid set.
4 – The Brick skirt is sold separately, but I wanted to wear it to show you how diverse this new collection is…you truly can mix and match these items, ladies!
5 – Last, but not least, are the brown garter/stockings combination (my personal favorite of the two colors).

There are more looks – I left out the boy shorts, pasties, and a shelf bra (that shows partial nipple…hehe). I could take photos of every possible look…or you can get some and see for yourself ^^

Happy shopping!

Meet Goldie

“Pretty soon, she came upon a house. She knocked and, when no one answered, she walked right in.”

Hey guys! Halloween is coming up soon, and I was wondering what I should wear for a costume this year. I had forgotten that the lingerie stores have nice stuff too this time of year ^^ So today I want to show you all this set from Carrie’s Lingerie, Goldie.

Goldie comes with a brown corset and pink lace, and also with a greenish-yellow off-the-shoulder peasant blouse. It also comes with thigh high stockings with a cute pink bow, a ruffled short green skirt  and an apron with the 3 bears on it.

One reason why I like Goldie is because you can wear the corset by itself with the accompanying pink bow pasties, or if you are feeling naughty, go without ^^ Don’t forget to take off the blouse cuffs like I did when I first did the photo shoot for this outfit, which resulted in me taking another quick photo…lol. But it still looked nice! 😛

Last, but not least, Goldie comes with a cute teddy bear for you to hold and cuddle!

Until next time, guys!
