50 Shades of Sexy- Week 7 Agent Provocative

   My wonky interpretation of this week’s prompt was inspired by Maya Angelou’s, Phenomenal Woman. I am wearing taste’s Taboo Corset Dress in midnight and thoroughly enjoy how Lumi did the lacing on the back of this piece. It comes in 6 layers, with an open corset option, pasties (tattoo layer), and you can double it as a mini dress as well.     A Beretta in one hand, cold hard cash in the other and I feel phenomenal, powerful, and provocative.   Pretty women wonder where my secret lies. I’m not cute or built to suit a fashion model’s size But when I start to tell them, They think I’m telling lies. I say, It’s in the reach of my arms The span of my hips, The stride of my step, The curl of my lips. I’m a woman Phenomenally. Phenomenal woman, That’s me. I walk into a room Just as cool as you please, And to a man, The fellows stand or Fall down on their knees. Then they swarm around me, A hive of honey …

Hottie Cooterati’s Zodiac: Pisces

     Many an astrology guru are spot on when they describe the essence of a Piscean. Yes, we are sensitive, yes we are caring and yes we are creative (when it suits us). While I do not personally follow the whole of the study of astrology, there are some things kind of interesting about fishies. Here are few bullet points with uhm, some ad lib O.o -You are a bit too painstaking for your own good.      And that’s a bad thing, because…? -Compulsive Purist      Again, not a bad thing. Daniel Day Lewis ring a bell? -You have an inner core of flexibility and determination which enables you to handle adversity in life with calm forbearance and are much more self-directed and tough than your fellow Pisceans.    This is true, BEFORE it hits full moon. Then, its fair game, and out comes Ms Bipolar of the Year. -By nature you are very shy and reserved.    Laughable. I am as gregarious as a hippo in ballerina flats. -Your conscience is huge, and you believe …

50 Shades of Sexy- Week 6 Intoxicate Me

   No animals real or virtual were harmed in any way shape or form during this virtual photo shoot. So this goes to show he’s truly not intoxicated, rather, just exhausted from being shoved around while I set the scene lol. Isn’t Thor precious? Napping all Cozey like.     However, taste’s Sensuous in peach is the main star today (so sorry Thor!). This is where I’m to write how the fabric feels against my smooth skin, the puckering texture of each silky garter, wrapped snugly around  my thighs and the luxurious lace embroidery cleverly cut to show a nicely perked nip.. right? No siree :) I chose the Peach simply because the mint colored bows gave a lovely contrast.  Definitely take the limo to taste to see the other available colors, you’ll be pleasantly surprised.  Credits: Lingerie: taste‘s Sensuous in Peach by Luminescent Jewell Hair: elikatira‘s Indulge in Brown by Elikapeka Tiramisu Skin: Belleza‘s Wynter Skin by Tricky Boucher Other Items from Top Image: Furniture Set: Ruca Tease‘s Comfy Chair Set (Mesh!!!) by Bonadea Avedon Rug: …

50 Shades of Sexy Round Up!!

   Talk about out of breath and out of mind! You fashion bloggers out there have your work cut out for you, I admire your tenacity to stick to it! While I yet toss around the notion that this is anything but a fashion blog, I must conclude, that it is slowly morphing into a bit of everything I enjoy on Second Life, be it fashion, great content creation, events, causes, classes, horses and oh yes, the Second Life experience itself.    I often tell my friends irl that immersing ‘socialization’ in a virtual environment can oft be a two edged sword. Tip to the extreme on either side and we can ‘rent’ our own well being into shreds. So kids, balance is the word of the day, eh? Now how about, lingerie? Better word me thinks!    Tonight is the night ladies and gentlefolk, for the official 50 Shades of Sexy event at the Library. You can read more about it here to get the full picture and .. pictures! Thank you to Shiloh Selene …

50 Shades of Sexy- Week 3 Sexual Healing

   And photo editing practice continues. You know, I feel like my images are beginning to look like ads rather than actual art :/ I just want to showcase the lingerie above anything else I guess. Have been trying to add quirky subliminal things to posh up the picture. I think the imaginary people in my head are ‘getting it’. But woe to you readers, this girl is still learning the mojo of SL Fashion blogging.     This third and probably my most favorite piece of Luminescent Jewell’s lingerie line, is called Seduction Fishnet Stocking in White. It is her most popular item and is available in red, pink and black. It also comes in several different layers including, gloves, socks, revealing and pants, thong and top. I appreciate the work she put into the seaming as well. Be sure to grab the limo to ‘taste’ the rest of her designs!

50 Shades of Sexy Week 2 – Better Than Chocolate

   What’s better than chocolate? The Cupcake Plant! A gift that keeps on giving. This blogger challenge is just that, challenging. I’ve had to cull out the ole SL virtual barbie closet, and really look at what I have that doesn’t scream, IMPULSE purchase. Doesn’t this set remind you of raspberries? Chocolate with berries..heh, pretty ingenious chocolateers.      The next few posts I’ll be showcasing taste lingerie from Owner/Designer, Luminescent Jewell. I met Lumi while working at Club Velvet Manor and have always been a fan of her designs. The nice thing about her pieces is that she doesn’t overboard on the level of detail, and yet keeps the allure and interest there. You’ll see what I mean during the next few weeks lol.  Happy Cross Your Heart Hope You get Lucky on Valentines- DAY!

One Billion Rising in Second Life

   Thanks to the collective efforts of residents on Second Life, One Billion Rising will commence tomorrow, February 14th. Here is a brief description from the OBR blog: “ONE BILLION RISING began as a call to action based on the staggering statistic that 1 in 3 women on the planet will be beaten or raped during her lifetime. With the world population at 7 billion, this adds up to more than ONE BILLION WOMEN AND GIRLS. On February 14, 2013, men and women in Second Life will join activists, writers, thinkers, celebrities, and people across the world to Walk, Dance, and Rise as a show of unity, individual strength, and the need for change.”    1 in 3 women is one too many don’t you think? The folks at OBR SL are not asking for donations out right. Just a time to come together, in mutual support and to raise awareness.    Every one of us has a story to tell, scars to bare, and words of encouragement to share, why not take the time …

50 Shades of… Catching Up!

   SL Blogger Challenges are something I’ve noticed the general community respond to positively as of late.  I just happened to come across “50 Shades of Sexy” on a Google search one day and scrolled a few lines when up popped the name of long time friend, Tigist Sapphire of Ticklemetummy.

Midnight Collabor88 Rush and PSE Texture fun..

   The whole fashion blogging world is quite foreign to me, but oh so fun even for a newcomer. Collabor88’s February Round is underway and I happily joined the throngs for the Midnight Rush. It was well worth it to see Designers, Bloggers and Shopoholics alike make it through jello-esque lag to get first dibs on this month’s offerings…  Chair on the Left: Trompe Loeil Ribbon Chair Dark Wood Red by Cory Edo- NEW! @ Collabor88! | Other Pieces: Ruca Tease Shabby Chic Privacy Screen by Bonadea Avedon | The Loft Dunham Objet Set Group Member Gifts NEW! @ Collabor88! >> Hair:  Truth’s Hollana in dark brown by Truth Hawks | Jewelry: Yummy Capri Set Earrings by   Polyester Partridge; Khaleesi Temptation Necklaces by Maxi Gossamer | Outfit: Top/Bottom The Sea Hole’s Pan Bahatt in garam masala (mesh) by Drinkinstein Sorbet  ALSO NEW! @ Collabor88! Hair: Clawtooth’s Jump Magic Black Beauty by Bubbles Clawtooth | Top: (fd) Long Loose T Grey and Red by Toast Bard | Other stuffs: Skin- Belleza’s Kate Frost SK | Mayfly Mesh Eyes Desert Twilight w1 by Arkesh Baral | Redgrave Natural Lashes 06 | Bottom: coldlogic capri lepore …

Gridlines, viewers, and Valentine’s…

   So I think the pictures will speak for themselves. After reading and watching several  other tutorials about a well known SL Photographer-plague-OMG headache-issue, I decided to opt  for this option. Granted its an old bug, I am still glad that this option, worked out for the epic conundrum.  Skin: Belleza’s Betty | Hair: LoQ Absolut | Tank: =Razorblade= | Shorts: <kalrau> Sports Shorts Womens | Jewelry: [MANDALA] Motsumame Ring | Mesh Barefeet: Gos Boutique Skin: Belleza’s Betty | Hair: Wasabi Pill Shiki | Eyes: Mayfly’s Mesh Dusky Cerise w2 | Top: coldlogic Lauren in Cotton | Skirt: coldlogic hall in Cotton | Nails: Candy Nails #P027 Clear French | Jewelry: BoHo Friendship Bracelets (free giveaways); Necklace: Magic Nook Vintage Watch TDR Fusion | Mesh Barefeet Gos Boutique    None of the above images above were edited with the exception of cropping and additional text layers..(oh and all that pretty background stuff.
