Sale at Rebel Hope!

Lounging at the G Spot

Hey everyone! I found out that Rebel Hope was having a clearance sale off certain items, so I decided to go down and take a look around. I found this cute babydoll lingerie for like…10 or 15L? If you are looking for cute and cheap lingerie, now it’s your chance to come get some before it’s gone forever ^^

So, a little bit about the G Spot. You can tell by the name that it’s adult-themed, and it’s a cool, but laggy place to go if you are looking for like-minded individuals to talk and do stuff with. I tried using the furniture on the main level, but the scripts were all lagged out. It took me a long time to get a group invite from the group joiner just to be able to use the skyboxes.

But once you do get to the skyboxes, everything is very nice. This is the Miami skybox – a nice place to chill and relax, among other things 😛 Since the instructions say that if you are in the skybox by yourself you can get kicked after a certain time, a guy was happy enough to come with me to keep me company for a bit. I think he lost interest though once he found out I was a fashion blogger, and soon left to hook up with another female. Thank you though! 🙂 I think this place is good for taking people to the skyboxes to have fun with…not so much for meeting people (basing it on my overall experiences there).

Spiked Debut

Hey guys! Today I thought I would go a bit haute couture because Gizza has a new item out called Spiky Fur. I had just picked up a pair of pants from NYU’s sale, so when I saw this, I knew it would look killer.

i(heart)Unity from Indyra Originals

Hello everyone! Indyra Originals came out with a new mesh release ^^ Now you can watch the Olympics in style 😀

So, who are you rooting for this year? I’m Team USA all the way, baby!

i(heart)Unity also has Team Italy, Team Japan,  Team Great Britain, Team Australia, Team China, Team France, Team German, Team South Korea, and Team Russia. Each outfit comes with a pair of leather boy shorts, several pairs of knee high socks, and a color-change headband with options of white, green, yellow, red, blue, black, and pink.

I know that wearing flags as clothing isn’t the “cool” thing to do for some people (and I think in the USA it’s illegal to have the flag as clothing…or so I’ve heard). But this is a totally cool way to rock your favorite team’s colors.

Check out the different team outfits on the Indyra Originals website ^^

M.O.C.K. Cosmetics – Glasside Lips

Hey guys! Once again Mockie has some great bargains for you at M.O.C.K. Cosmetics – 9 lip colors for only 100L (limited time only, then they will be full price). You can get them all in a box that is up front, at the table. I know some people are hesitant to buy makeup when it’s boxed because you won’t know whether it’s worth it or not. So I’ll be the happy guinea pig and show you what’s inside 🙂

All lip colors have 3 different lip sizes, so don’t worry about whether it fits to your lips. I’m sure there is a size for all of us happy makeup people!

Carissma, Coralista, Flame Pea

Geraldine,  Peru tan, Petite Orchid

Sorbis, Trinidad, Shocking Pink

Which one is your favorite? I think I like Petite Orchard for a nude color, and Carissma for that slight touch of color. My eye makeup is Mock’s Blackest Night eyeshadow, and the shimmer that you see is part of my skin from Al Vulo – think it was an older group gift.

Happy shopping everyone!

Last Call to Culture Shock 2012

If you haven’t been to Culture Shock yet, today is the last day, so get going NOW. Plus with Memorial weekend here, there are sales and events all over the grid. I can hardly keep up myself…my poor pocketbook 😀

Dresses like the one I am wearing from Peqe is the reason why I like mesh. It’s form-fitting with no prim skirt attachment that can be hard to fit, and looks different depending on your graphic settings. The color combination seems very tropical, and that’s what made me want to get this item. The skin is from Pink Fuel, which is also at Culture Shock. I love Mochi’s lipsticks and I wear them frequently. LoQ did a great job with this hair – short and edgy always has a place in my wardrobe ^^

Estetica has these cute chairs at the event – 7 poses and only 3 prims each! Now you know that you will need a chair one of these days…you can get a chair that is pretty, but will eat up your prims, or you can get an ugly low prim chair. Or you can just pick up this chair at the event 🙂

I was trying to see if I could get a better photo of the Pink Fuel skin, and I loved how this one turned out. The swimsuit is from Aleida, who is having a closing sale at the moment. Everything must go! I got a few more items from there, so I may blog it later.

This dress from Indrya Originals is hot…and also at Culture Shock. But I’ll tell you something ..

beckons you to come closer and whispers…

…the item that is being donated is even hotter than this dress. Fact!

Easter pose hunt @ Morgane Batista’s poses shop

I finally got into Collabor88 and again wanted to buy ALL the things. But I managed to get just one outfit from Kyoot (because it was so cute!) so I could have something pretty to show off these cool poses that I got from Morgane Batista‘s egg hunt.

Gooooooo Giants!

Headlines: NY Giants beat New England Patriots 21-17 to win Super Bowl XLVI

And with that being said, I don’t really watch football. But I DO support my New York teams when they make it to the finals ^^ I turned to the tv. in the last seconds of the Super Bowl (no I didn’t tune in for the commercials lol) and I saw the Giants win. It was a great feeling, that and seeing people wear Giants gear around Second Life.

I had heard that RDG sold jerseys and the like, so I went down to the shop to see what they had. I looked and looked, and couldn’t find the NY Giants jersey. It wasn’t until 2 people came out of nowhere and turned the vendor to what I wanted (they were dressed up in Giants gear already) that I was able to get my stuff. I figured they saw me dress like this (minus the hat because I got that at the store) and wanted to help a fellow fan out ^^

I have to say, I’m disappointed with this hat. You can tell it was made for a guy, and for the life of me I could not re-size it to what I wanted it to look like. The shorts, war paint and the shirt are from Erotique Designs – Jania was so excited that she made shirts for the 2 teams so that we could look sexy and root for our favorite teams at the same time.

Now, every time the Super Bowl comes up, I always hear people outside of the USA say, “American football is not football.” So I wanted to know where exactly did we get football and soccer (what most people call football) from. This was taken from Slate.com:

“It’s an abbreviation of association football. Both soccer and American football come from the same set of precursor sports, which became popular in upper-class English schools in the early 19th century and spread across the Atlantic. All these games involved advancing a ball through an opponent’s territory and scoring at the far end, but the rules varied from place to place. Ultimately, the version adopted as standard in the United Kingdom came to be known as association football, while another set of rules won out in the United States. Thus the Americans took to calling their gridiron variety football, and referred to the British sport by the slang term soccer, derived from the soc in association.”

This excerpt is taken from the word “football” in wikipedia:

“The Oxford English Dictionary (OED) records that the first written use of the word football used to describe a game was in 1424 in an Act forbidding it. The first written use of the word football to describe the ball was 1486, and that the first use as a verb (hence footballing) was in 1599. Although the OED just indicates it is a compound of foot and ball, the 1486 definition indicates that a ball was of the essence of the game.

Although it is widely assumed that the word football, or “foot ball”, originated in reference to the action of a foot kicking a ball, this may be a false etymology. An alternative explanation has it that the word originally referred to a variety of games in medieval Europe, which were played on foot.  These sports were usually played by peasants, as opposed to the horse-riding sports more often enjoyed by aristocrats. This explanation is supported by the fact that the word football has always implied a wide variety of games played on foot, not just those that revolved around kicking a ball.In some cases, the word has been applied to games which involved carrying a ball and specifically banned kicking.”

So after reading these 2 articles, what’s the problem in Americans using the word football to describe…football? Or using the word soccer for something that the British (the worse offenders in making fun of Americans) made up themselves? Just leave us alone so we can party and have a good time!
