Computer Issues :(

Not sure what happened,  but to add to the issues I have already been having, yesterday afternoon my computer monitor doesn’t seem to register a connection to my computer. I have no clue where the problem lies so I have to take it in to be serviced. Will be back as soon as I can ūüė¶ I am writing this on my phone…I didn’t know they had an app for WordPress. Good to know!

BellaTrix – versatility and beauty by design

When selecting jewelry to wear, I try to look for sets that will not only look great together, but hold their own as individual pieces. Today I am showing you how BellaTrix, a recent release from Chop Zuey, accentuates two completely different outfits. BellaTrix is at Swank through May 31st. BellaTrix is a texture change set where the bracelets, ring, and earrings can change colors. With over a dozen possibilities for color, you will not have a hard time getting BellaTrix to coordinate with your outfit.

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.

PurpleMoon Creations Advent Calendar

Hey guys! It’s that time of year when there are a lot of cool gifts and inexpensive finds in Second Life! This year I want to showcase some of them. I am currently working on a HUGE post on the Peace on Earth 8 hunt – that should be up within the next day or so.

PurpleMoon Creations currently has an Advent calendar that started on December 1st, and will go all the way up to the 24th. What I liked about it is that if you miss a day, you can still get the items. Thank you to all of the stores who allow people to still have access to your wonderful gifts after the day is over, and do not make you pay for each gift ^^ I decided to let Eve model the PurpleMoon clothing, since she is in the group and I am not. What I think I will do is to keep updating this page with all of the Purple Moon gifts as they come out. That would be easier, right?

This month’s fashion recap at Ghee

Hey – I’m back guys! I got my computer earlier today, and everything seems to be in tip-top shape. Now, on to the fashion!

Ghee has had a lot of nice items this month that I did not get a chance to tell you about.

Ghee - second Life

On the left I am wearing the Ghee Scheherazade top and pants that was recently at the Instruments. I looked up the name “Scheherazade” and according to Wikipedia, she was legendary Arabic queen and the storyteller of One Thousand and One Nights.
I have on the shoes as well, and you will need Slink mid foot in order to wear them.

The Deidre dress, shoes, and necklace in burgundy is ideal if you want a classic vintage look. Deidre comes in 5 colors, and you can also color change the ribbon on the necklace to go with your dress. You can see that I am wearing a bracelet – that is actually the necklace resized. You can try that with just about any necklace that is able to be modified.

Since both of these creations were at events that recently ended, they should be at the mainstore shortly if they are not there already. Here is your chance to pick them up if you missed them this month!

Happy shopping!

Hey guys! I know things have been quiet as of late. I took my computer in for repairs earlier this month,  and it has taken way longer than I had expected. I finally got in contact with the (rude) technician that is working on my computer, and he said it should be ready within the next few days.

I have been keeping up a bit with what’s new in SL, like Catwa’s new mesh head and a new event called SaNaRae (sp?). Let me know in the comments if I missed out on anything else in the past few weeks ^^

See you soon!

 

 

Are you in the Mix?

Hey guys! Are you in the Mix? If not, you should check out this new monthly event. The first round started on July 1st, but since we are about mid-month now, I thought I would remind (or inform) you about an event that brings traffic back to mainstores.


Hair: Besom~Petal (Mix item)
Hat: Ghee Summer Hat (old fair gift)
Skin:Glam Affair РAlice РSummerParty РJamaica 01 
Eyes: IKON Promise Eyes  РNymph
Necklace:  {Indyra} Alexandria Necklace
Outfit: GizzA РMeimei Dress [Floral] 
Bag: *{Junbug}* Cute Coin Purse Blue (recolored)
Shoes: {Livalle} Ganymede -Slingback Wedges (pink)

Mix has a hud that will help you go from store to store, and it also tells you who is participating at a glance. You can get the hud from marketplace, or maybe you have received one already from a participating store.

mix1

As you can see, there are three categories – Sale, New, and Exclusive. Besom has come out with this new hair this month called Petal, and it is available now at the store. Make sure you make a note of the sale and exclusive items, for the item itself may not be there at all at the end of the month.

One critique I have heard about the hud is that it has many scripts and takes up significant memory at “87 scripts. 5.56MB memory.” I can confirm the 87 scripts, and it dropped my FPS from 75 to 13. It made my friend crash repeatedly. So to play it safe, I would just go to Eloquence or Seraphim and grab the links from there. The coordinators for this event should look into this, for this is a significant issue.

The great thing about this event is that hopefully it will show designers that they should create for their main stores as well as numerous events. Sometimes the instant gratification of earning a quick Linden is a strong pull, but what happens if events shut down? Or, if you want to have a sale at your store, but haven’t gotten around to setting out old event items? Even if the demand is not there at the stores at this time,¬† you should always take care of your homebase because you own it.

So, are YOU in the Mix? You still have time ! ^^
