indyra-grand-re-opening

Indyra Originals is having a grand re-opening of their mainstore. The new build looks great – it looks sleek on the outside, and on the inside it’s easier to look for what you need. There is even a lounge area where you can sit and cam shop! ^^

 

This is the group gift from Friday – Angeline in Blush color. Actually, I was able to pick it up just now, so if you hurry you still may be able to get this pretty dress. What is not shown here is the flower neck corsage. I can see myself using it in a variety of ways – don’t you just love accessories? 🙂

See you at Indyra’s!

Advice for Second Life Newbies

The Plastik – Flourish Outfit (Cailin Dress)

Hey guys! Finally I have a small break from rl classes, so I have more time to blog ^^ Two things for today – this awesome dress is part of the Flourish Outfit at The Plastik for 50L Friday. The second thing is that Berry’s latest challenge asked us to “List 5 pieces of advice you would give to a newcomer that has just joined Second Life.

1. Think about what you want to do in Second Life, and then go seek it out – don’t be afraid to look for new opportunities.

I think that’s a big part of why newcomers don’t get it – SL doesn’t have objectives; just those that you set for yourself. There are so MANY things you can do in SL, such as..

  • Shopping
  • Relationships
  • Families
  • Exploring
  • Music (playing or listening)
  • Dancing (or dancer)
  • Photography
  • Real estate (business)
  • Homeowner
  • Driving vehicles
  • Community Roleplaying
  • Friendships
  • Scripting
  • Services
  • Building
  • Designing
  • Fashion modeling
  • Adult activities
  • Machinima
  • Writer (blogging/magazine/newspaper)
  • Entrepreneur
  • and more!

No one should ever be able to say that they are bored if they are new to SL….it’s impossible! 😀

2. Don’t get caught up in other people’s drama.

I’ll give you a clue – if someone has “No drama” on their profile, chances are they run into a LOT of drama. It’s a given that most people don’t like drama – it’s draining, and SL goes way too fast time-wise to get caught up in that. So if someone has to explicitly say that…chances are they attract trouble. If your circle of friends are fighting, always try to seek the truth and don’t take other people’s point of view blindly.

3. Read blogs, magazines, newspapers, videos, social media, etc about Second Life to learn more about it and to keep up with the latest news. Chances are you will discover something new, and can use it to your advantage. Plus, you will look knowledgeable to your friends, and they can count on you to keep them informed.

4. Get involved in SL by participating (work or volunteer) at a place of business or organization. I learned so much because of SL, and I was able to apply rl experience in SL as well. All of this boosted my confidence significantly.

5. Keep an open mind and positive attitude. Some people bring in their rl negativity to SL. Everyone has different experiences, so try to learn something from them.

Your Avatar’s Private Life Challenge

shadows_00213

I thought this meme would be fun to do…what does your avatar do after you log out?

Well, earlier, I had taken the following photo – very glam and in style. Then I heard someone whisper in a sad voice,

But…why do the pants have to be so tight…and the heels so high?

I thought I was imagining things. So I went home and log out of Second Life. But little did I know…

Yes! Finally I can get out of this clothing!. Beauty is pain, my foot! And speaking about my foot…if I didn’t soak and lotion my feet every time SHE logs off, I would have the most painful feet ever! Have you seen pictures of people who wear high heel shoes all the time? It’s just not normal!

So let’s see…I’m going to wear….what can I wear in this closet…oh yes! I will wear this baggy shirt…and these pants. You would think they would be sweats, right? Well, even my sweats are tight! Who does that, anyway?

After washing all of the product in my hair out, I think I’m just going to jam my hat on my head and head out somewhere. NO, I will not be going shopping. I don’t even LIKE shopping all of that much. Do you know how many unopened boxes that I have in my inventory which contents have never seen the light of day? I can open my OWN store from this inventory and make a killing off sales.

I don’t mind my nails…a girl has to treat herself every once in a while. But all of this makeup has to go! Ah…a clean fresh look is always in style.

Now what to do? I know! I’m going to lay out on the couch, eat sugary snacks, and doze off watching movies. I NEVER get to rest anymore…sigh.

The next day when I log on, my avatar is right where I left her, even dressed the same, although she looks…hmm…I can’t put my finger to it. It’s like with my cats Snowflake and Diamond – those two always get into mischief. Hey, maybe I’ll talk about what they do while I’m away next time 🙂

Carmen’s Escape

Hey guys! Belle from Chop Zuey came out with a terrific group gift, so I wanted to share it with you all.  As some of you may know, recently Chop Zuey opened up their sky boutique at the Chop Zuey sim, with a nice variety of dresses. When I went to visit, my reaction was, “How does she do it?”  I won’t show you any photos of the build – you will just have to go see for yourselves 😉

Carmen’s Escape in Ocean is the current group gift at Chop Zuey. I’m happy because blue is my favorite color, and how many stores do you know give out fabulous clothes AND matching jewelry? Carmen’s Escape comes with the dress, gloves, fascinator, jeweled belt, necklace, and earrings. The glove details are excellent – both jewels and feathers make up the gloves. The accessories would look great in a mix-and-match with other outfits.

Until next time – happy shopping!

Hey guys! Today I will show you the Alyx skin from Pink Fuel, by Mochi Milena. There is a huge fatpack out at Skin Fair that has all of the makeups for each tone.

Alyx comes in 3 eyebrow colors: light brows, red, auburn, dark brows, and a no brows option. There are 10 skin tones in all – I am wearing the Latte tone in my photos. To see the complete lineup, you can look at Mochi’s flickr here.

Starting from top left: Blue, light smokey, natural, pink, pure, purple, smokey, winged

Lip tint: Nude, nude w/ teeth (all lipsticks come with teeth options), orange, pink

Classic lipstick: fuschia,hot pink, orchid, pin up red, ruby red, vintage red

Lip Lustre: Berry Bonbon, Candy Apple, Cherry Bonbon, Hi-C, Icing, Nude, Orange, Pink Bonbon, Rose Bonbon, Salmon, Smoked Pink, Sprinkle, Squeezed

See you at the Skin Fair!

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!

The Calico Diva

Calico dress by Meghindo’s

Hey guys! I had read Khitt‘s post on the Calico dress at Meghindo‘s, and I just had to get it! I have seen a lot of baroque fashion this season, and until now, I haven’t really been much of a fan.  But who wouldn’t feel like a diva in this dress ^^ The shoulder pads give the dress just the right amount of edge for a diva to look and feel great in it. Hmm…this could be my new lil’ black dress….maybe?

This is a partial mesh dress (yay!) that comes in several sizes. However, this dress does not come with alphas, so I had to wear a large so that my butt could fit into the dress 😀 My butt has gotten me in trouble before, and I have actually had to talk to designers about getting a different alpha to cover my derriere. Luckily this was not the case here.

Until next time!
