Keepin’ it sweet and sexy

So who keeps it sweet and sexier – blondes? Or brunettes? I think it’s time to put this to the test (again). Only this time…I’m going to compare two pictures within one post to see what’s what. So….

We have look one:

Free gifts at Midnight Madness

Update: Due to the crowds and demand, many stores have agreed to set their items to 0L for 24 hours, including Blueberry. Please join the inworld group for the latest details on your favorite stores.

For those people who like Midnight Mania boards, then this Midnight Madness event is for you! Created by the owner of Apple May Designs, Midnight Madness is definitely going to be the talk of Second Life today! I love mainstore-based events, so I am happy to share this with all of you.

Midnight Madness - Magika

There were issues with the boards not working, so the designers have made some adjustments in how they are issuing their gifts. I would suggest joining the inworld group for the latest information. Some groups that would normally have a fee to join are free today I believe, so definitely take advantage ^^

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?

What a bargain at Livalle for 50L Friday!

Hello, my name is Monica Querrien, and I love high heel shoes. And because I pretty much live in my high heels, I thought it was imperative to let you know about the BARGAIN that is at Livalle today. Marissa in 4 colors…only 50L. AND, if your feet start to hurt because you’ve been running around all day in your heels, you can slip on a pair of flup-flops and carry on. The flup-flops also come with the special pack of Marissa shoes.

Lingerie for the Kitchen?

Only two weeks until Valentine’s Day – what are you going to get for that special day? Blacklace has part of the answer (at least for the ladies) – be a Sexy Little Cook and cook you and your lover a nice meal…


…or just order in? Anyways, regardless on what option you choose, there is always the next morning. This sexy little cook has her red apron, red oven mitt, and lots of cookies to tide anyone over. Yes, I said cookies, and it all comes with the satin and lace lingerie.

Remembering How to Have Fun


xxxxx xxxxx: well you should give yourself more time to have fun

That pretty much says it all, don’t you think? For the workaholics and the busy-as-a-bee people in Second Life, I feel like a lot of us push fun to the side to pursue other activities. Sometimes we call it change, other times we say we have grown out of doing certain things, and then for some, it’s a sacrifice so that we can do what we believe to be greater things.

One of my friends helped me get back in touch with the fun aspects of SL today. We went to a snowy sim where we sat on the swings until I got too cold (it happens when you go outside with no coat, even if your friend promises to keep you warm…smh). He said it was my turn to pick a place to visit.  I thought about a place that I’d heard about, but never got the chance to visit it properly.

 ℳøηї (monica.querrien): hmm
 ℳøηї (monica.querrien): do you like coffeehouses?
 xxxxx xxxxx: yesh
 xxxxx xxxxx: if they are cuddly

One thing I like about The Pixel Bean Coffeehouse is that you can either be sociable on the ground floor, or head upstairs if you want a semi-secluded conversation with your friends. The Bean has live events too from time to time, so if you like such events, be sure to come visit.

School’s in Session!

My Yearbook Smile!

Hey guys! So I decided to do Berry’s challenge this week – show everyone your yearbook smile. This brought back memories of me practicing in the mirror to get that “perfect” smile for the camera. Geez – I remember when I wore braces, practicing was a must.

Since I wear glasses in real life, I remembered that taking yearly pictures as a kid was a dice roll – I never knew whether I would be able to leave my glasses on or not. I mean, if you are paying money, you should be able to wear your glasses without worrying about flash reflections. Thankfully in 8th grade I could leave my glasses on (and I was braces free ^^).

Did anyone have to wear that black drape where they velcro’ed it to your body in high school? My friends helped me put it on – had to pull down my bra straps and all. Try smiling for the camera when you feel like the drape is about to come right off of you – lol. High school seemed like a production cause we did like 3 pictures or something. One with the drape, one (relatively) plain background that would be our yearbook picture (think we had our gowns), and then I had a scholastic-type background where it was like a bookcase and our high school banner hanging on the side.

In college, they told us to wear a dark-colored shirt. I wish I didn’t listen to them – didn’t like how my photo turned out and my mom only got one picture (she was outraged at the price I think). Then that photo got lost somehow…I think I put it behind another picture in a frame and then lost track of which frame. And then we moved, so who knows where it is now! But anyway, enough of going down memory lane.

For the photo background, I just grabbed anything that looked okay – I ended up getting a blue background off of google images after doing a search for “yearbook backgrounds”. I too used the anypose hud for the smile, but I ended up merging two pictures because I liked the eyes in one picture, and the smile in another. This kinda reminded me of a modeling contest that I entered long time ago where I came in 2nd place. I practiced my smile too for quite a bit. I am not sure what ratio I used for the photo – I was just cropping away and paid that no mind lol.

Happy Independence Day!

What did you do on July 4th?

Hey everyone! I hope everyone enjoyed the holiday (those who celebrate it, of course), and got to eat yummy food and/or socialize 🙂 I stayed at home, but I made what I think is the best burger ever (that I made, anyway).

I like the look that I pulled together today – I believe that it’s a look that can be worn on any summer day, and not just on the 4th. Well, I’ll let you get back to what you were doing just now 🙂
