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.

LIFE 2 – Eat, drink, and be merry through interaction

Hey guys! I have wanted to talk about [LIFE2] since the beginning of the summer, but as we all know, things happen. I was introduced to this interactive HUD probably because I like food – and there is a lot of it for LIFE ^^ I am not sure when LIFE started, but I do remember at one point there were merchants advertising “LIFE-friendly” furniture and the like.

I went to the Life Sim earlier because one of my friends had recently rented a new place, and I had the idea to show him a place that resembled a RL supermarket. He was excited because he saw many things that could be used as home decor.

LIFE 2 came out in June, which was right around the time when I was introduced to it. According to their Facebook page, “[ L I F E ] HUD is a changing the way you enjoy Second Life. We give your avatar each of the following essential needs; Hunger, Thirst, Bladder, Hygiene, Energy, and Entertainment. Each of these are needs that you will encounter with your use of the HUD that you must satisfy and are essentially the foundation for continuing progress in the LIFE Hud and Unlocking all the fun things we’ll be adding to it as we progress.

Some people may like the fact that in Second Life, we don’t need to sleep, eat, or shower. Others may want a more “realistic” experience to bring people closer together.

So what do you get when you buy LIFE2?

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 ❤ 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 ^^

Business As Usual

 

Hey guys! I’m ready to go to work with my new business suit from LaVian&Co. The shirt and tie are color-changeable by HUD ; the shirt has 9 colors, and the tie has 6. LaVian&Co is the rebranding of LivGlam, and they already have a number of quality items in-store now.

Next, the Irebren bag is also color-changeable, so that you will always match – no matter what you have on. Glasses always make for a nice touch, especially when they are on sale for only 50L at SORGO. What I love about SORGO is that the package comes with glasses and sunglasses. Transitional lenses, anyone?

Look at the time – gotta go before I’m late! Happy shopping everyone!

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.

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!

In a Shopping Daze

Photos taken by Bunny Boxen

Hey guys! I’ve been having such a good time hanging with Bunny that I got her to take some photos of me with my new outfit. Have you ever had one of those days where you check out all the sales, hunts, and new releases that you can stand before passing out on your bed? I kinda had one of those days today…except that I’m on a stool 🙂

Let’s start from the top, literally…

The hair I’m wearing is from Clawtooth, and it’s currently at Collabor88 this month. In the past, I have had a hard time getting this hair to rez properly. My plurk friends suggested that I up the MeshMaxConcurrentRequests in debug settings to around 250 (mine was at 100). At 263, everything is a-okay. Thank goodness! I have bought non-mesh hair in the past from Clawtooth, so I felt bad for not being able to view the mesh hair properly.

Paradisis has had several new releases. This sweater is a gift at the store, but on sale there are several colors available. For those who have the “endowed” breasts, these sweaters also have the applicators for your usage. All of this makes me want to get boobs now…lol. The bubble jacket vest comes in several colors as well, and for a good price. I was tempted to buy more than one color, very easily. But I got black for right now 🙂

The boots I have on are from Hucci, also available at Collabor88 this month…for 88L each! Come on now…that’s a true bargain right there! Eboni has a new mainstore as well that is worth checking out. When I went there, I felt that it was easier to find everything – and I found some stuff that I didn’t know was at the store. The mesh items are on the main floor, and the non-mesh is on the upper level.

I guess we had too much fun today…

New group gifts @ Maitreya

Hello guys! I heard that Maitreya had some nice group gifts and discounts for their members, so I decided to stop by to see what they were!

The first thing that I saw was this lovely mesh pencil skirt. Form-fitting garments look really good in mesh, and this skirt is no exception.

Maitreya also has free mesh lashes. This is the first time that I am wearing mesh lashes, and like other people have said, they seem easier to adjust than prim lashes. I was a bit wary of purchasing them, but now that I see how these are, I won’t hesitate next time I see a pair that I like. The only thing that I noticed is that mesh lashes are kinda tricky to grab when editing. I kept getting my hair for some reason, despite the fact that this hairstyle is pretty much out of my face.

I didn’t open this package yet, because I am not sure what I will wear with them. But aren’t these boots goregous? I believe they are 225L now in this color only. Make sure you wear your group tag!

Until next time – happy shopping!
