L2S 5.. It smells purple around here..

Taken with Singularity, edited on PSE11    Doing one of those spur of the moment posts in the middle of the night. That last shopping spurt when you can’t get into a full sim (aka Pose Fair 2013 at about 1am SLT). And something’s been driving my inventory wonky the past few hours.. did the sys admins fall asleep?    So, many of you know that Maya, the owner and designer behind Toki-Doki is back and she has released a set of cutesy cutesy Haru jackets (SO adorable). I’ve always loved her simple and minimilistic (sp?) approach to her designs and feature her pieces quite often. She and a handful of talented artists on the grid still incorporate painted on clothing and sculpts for which I am glad. Her mesh creations are awesome as well!   Do visit Toki-Doki’s main store and don’t forget to check the hyperlinks to the events!  raw img Featured Items:Jacket>>Toki-doki Haru Jacket violet flowers Available @ TDR 9!Pants>>erratic’s zoey leather pantsHeadband>>Toki-doki mighty headband 4Necklace 1>>MagicNook Easter Egg Necklace  Available @ TDR 9!Necklace 2>>glow studio’s …

L2S #4 Statement Necklaces, long coats and.. grid lines?

   Yeah I’m still learning how to get rid of those (grid lines). What’s that saying, we’re our own worst enemy? The problem is I use 3 different machines (computers/laptops) and only one of them has the SL Beta Viewer and ‘good’ graphics card. I’m not using that one right now hence that sexy line riding down the middle of the image^^    Yesterday I took a few pictures of the new Ruca Tease Patchwork Leather coat and not long after, Bon went ahead and sent me the next in the same line, the Lulumoon Ladies long coat, complete with mesh boy shorts. Her choice in the paisley like texturing and bold colors of black and pink I think made the outfit stand out. I really like this type of cut with the meshies btw and will be looking for more.    So this is where I learn that ‘styling’ thing yah? What do plunging necklines usually call for besides a place to hide hankies? A statement necklace! See I am learning! Decided on E-clipse’ …

Strawberry’s Social Media Meme

“I can’t go back to yesterday because I was a different person then.” Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland Folks, this is the mother of all memes. Strawberry Singh’ Social Media Meme is pretty in depth, and what I will appreciate most about this meme, will be ALL the connections we make. Strawberry is an absolute genius!!! I wanted to take a bit to plug in Strawberry’s website here (for whomever is lurking) because like so many of you, her blog was my starting point and inspiration in taking that blogging leap. I could have chosen anything to yack about, Breedables, Events, People, Third Party Viewers Oo (I jest). But the wonderful world of SL Fashion has way too many goodies and the horizon is ever changing, never the same, regardless of templates and drama. And Strawberry’s website is chock FULL of information and links to other tuts, bloggers, tips and oh gosh.. we could go on..*pours you some tea* So before that atrocious clock tells me its time to go to bed, let’s jump right in …

Zodiac’s Aries and Mr. Malcontent…

“You don’t strike me as the princess type.”“What’s that suppose to mean?”Daniel Smiled. “It means that I’d still go out of my way to rescue you, but you’d probably smack me across the head and try to slay the dragon yourself.” ― Jeyn Roberts, Dark Inside        The other day, our family celebrated my eldest child’s 15th birthday. She is a proud Aries. And when I say proud, I mean, the Joan of Arc kind of proud. Ever since she was a gapped tooth chunky asian baby, she was determined to make her mark in the world as an artist and writer. She’s the adventurer in our family, and  like my other children, teach me everyday what it means to live. So heads up, Aries.. or rather horns up?? This Piscean knows your number, and gladly relishes in your spontaneity, you hard headed bastion you!   The team from Hottie Cooterati presents this month’s Zodiac in Aries and with it a great set of furniture from Divine Falodir of .lame furnitures, a set of lively poses by Exposeur and much more.  …

SL Buddywalk 2013

“It is good to love many things, for therein lies the true strength, and whosoever loves much performs much, and can accomplish much, and what is done in love is well done.” –Vincent van Gogh    Up until this week, I’ve not heard about this organization in either RL or SL, so, many thanks to the Community Postings on Second Life, and for your blog reviews as well. I was able to visit the Relaxation Region where this year’s SL Buddywalk is being held and so far they have raised over L200K within just a few days of the opening. The event ends on March 31st. Do visit their main website for the full picture of their mission and purpose. ((Press Release taken from SL Buddywalk.org)) Buddy Walk Event to take place in Second Life March 17-31, 2013, celebrating World Down Syndrome Day. In the real world the Buddy Walk is a one-mile walk raising awareness and collecting pledges to benefit Down Syndrome. In Second Life it will be a bit different, there will be …

L2S #3 – Orange vs Chocolate and Fashion For Life 2013

      The inspiration behind my third Learning to Style post? The lovely combination of orange and chocolate…    I had to take a breather and step back from content overload. This gave me a chance to open up all the goodies from Fashion for Life, Skin Fair and those impulse purchases along the way. The ribbed ruching on Ala Folie’s Veronique reminds me of my favorite summer dress while living on the island of Maui.. Originally released last fall, this was my first time to try Pixivor Allen’s designs courtesy of her store at this year’s Fashion For Life and I’m so glad for it. You can see her love for art through her texturing.    The chocolate part of this outfit comes from one of Gos’ newer releases, the Angelina Peeptoe, and can I just give a shout out to the team at Gos’ Boutique for gathering all the data for the One Time Skin Matching System? Amazing work right there.    I’ve still got a long way to go with this Learning thing, …

L2S #2- Deco Graphic Styling, The Gallery Gift Shop

“Anything worth doing, is worth over doing” –Mick Jagger.    The Gallery Gift Shop presents their March Collection featuring designers and builders alike. I’ve been going off and on since last December and I think this spring round is one of my favorites so far. If you would like more information or see past collections visit their website here.    For my Learning 2 Style entry for Tuesday, I wanted to go rogue like and implement some digi prints in today’s outfit. These skinny jeans from Nudolu were perfect for a spring digi fest and are available at TGGS (The Gallery Gift Shop) for 120L a pair (4 pairs available).    Also picked up several other items from Zibska Jewelry and Hinako hair, while I was there and once again took a small ‘cam’ tour, to see who came to participate. The landscaper is none other than doP Kidd of KIDD grass, a must for any SL would- be gardener! You may find that some creators also have their offerings transferable for easy gifting.   …

Learning to Style 1: Monochromatic

  “In order to be irreplaceable, one must always be different.” Coco Chanel “Create your own style… let it be unique for yourself and yet identifiable for others.”  Anna Wintour   “Why change? Everyone has his own style. When you have found it, you should stick to it.” Audrey Hepburn    I wanted to do a Look of the Day, or lookbook dealeo, but hesitated. Fashion for me, irl or virtual is  intimidating in that, I am deficient in putting a cohesive outfit together. So rather than a LOTD or LKBK, I’ve started a Learning 2 Style or L2S, bit instead lol. Who doesn’t love acronyms? 🙂 Watch the horror as I pull from that creative cloud called my inventory and see what atrocities come forth mwahahahaha!     Today’s L2S entry is where I attempt a monochromatic theme. Here is a good link to a blog where this fashion trend broke it down for a newb like me.    Featured items: Skin>> Glam Affair’s Zara, America 1 by Aida Ewing Available at the Skin Fair. Zara is a wonder to wear, …

Berry’s Procrastination Meme! and our beloved Alyx…

a very very RAW snapshot of Pink Fuel’s Alyx in peach with Light Smokey Eyeshadow..Available at the Skin Fair!! “The thing all writers do best is find ways to avoid writing.”  ― Alan Dean Foster    Okay. I don’t feel so bad now that I know there are many of you out there in the same boat. Especially after the last few weeks! WOW, March is turning out to be the month to shop eh? (I’m so thankful I filed for tax refund in February ) Our SL blog crusader, Strawberry Singh has challenged us with another meme and I must say, she nailed it right on the proverbial head! Never did I realize how much effort it took to actually sit down and write about the content that we so love. How many ways can we describe an item, how do we put the thoughts down to convey what it is we most love about a creator’s masterpiece? So yeah, I guess procrastination and writing go hand in hand. I think it has a lot …
