Delicious Delights

Candy Fair- Sweet Shop Framed

Do you have a sweet tooth?  If you had a choice between a box of chocolates or lingerie, would you select candy?  Did you ever want to be baker?  Well, I’ve created an old-fashion sweet shop that answers all your desires.

Sweet talking w:bear

He whispered sweet nothings…

The Candy Fair 2014 is well under way and offers a delicious delight of dubious delectable from clothes, accessories, shoes, candy, poses and home decor.  As an interior designer, I was inspired by a mix of speciality gift shops from yesteryear and my local ice creamery.  “Glory’s Sweet Treats” offers an array of cotton candy, pick candy, ice cream, milkshakes, occasion cakes, cupcakes, seasonal treats, fresh-baked yummies, tea, coffee, and some darling plushies you’ll want to take home.  With multiple seating areas inside and al-fresco, we can cater to all your sugar pleasures.  Enjoy the photos and let me know if you want to visit (I’ll keep the build up until the 14th).

The Devil of Love

It's the end of the month, Uber has opened, and lots of good events will be rolling over soon, so if you have not been to Arcade, C88, or others, get there before they close!  For me, I felt like being sexy in the lingerie that Izzies has available at The Dressing Room Fusion for only 70L, with Physique appliers.  (Finally, I can break out my body for something)  Lindsey Warwick has these wedges out at Uber in an array of colors.  They have a very edgy look- and I think would be great for a goth or sci-fi look as well.

You Ain't Seen Nothin` Yet - Featuring Morphine from .PENUMBRA. Fashion Week, Persefona from Four Seasons Market, !Lybra, and Chop Zuey

I hope that though .PENUMBRA. Week, ( Penumbra Fashion & Events ) draws to an official close today, the new collections I've had bits and pieces to share with you might still be shared. Designers will be taking their new designs home with them and stores will have all sorts of new goodies to tempt you. The SL - Morphine sandal heels are the last official post I'll make for .PENUMBRA.
A new event begins today and has an array of Autumn items styled for both avatar wear and decor. I hope to share a little of both though I primarily stay with fashion these days, I don't want to disappoint the Event organizers or the many creative people who participated. The wreath from Persefona is one of several autumn leaf color accessories. Whether you're looking to add to an outfit for a night by the campire, something adorably perfect for such an outing, or searching for a unique piece to wear in your next Autumn fashion show, you might enjoy this from Four Seasons Market.
!Lybra has gone out of their way to make their world accessible even while they build a new store around their ever present ever classy designs. I had read about the special little corner they set up for those who maybe never tried Lybra before or are new to Second Life or simply on a very threadbare budget - this corner has an array of really darling designs for almost any occasion and they're all 1L. This Nurit red dress came from that section. It was the perfect frock for playing at a Carnival tonight.

When you live life fully, to the edge and then some, everything fires on all cylinders. You're a human engine and whatever your passion, it's pumping thunder and creating lightning. Some designers offer a few new items each year while others create scads each week. One designer that uses her imagination brilliantly is Belle Roussel. Today, she released Be Da' Buddha as a clutch (not shown) and as a shoulder bag. If this isn't clever, and beautiful, and so perfectly Chop Zuey, I don't know what is. Every time I think I've seen it all in Second Life, I realize that certainly hasn't happened yet!

The time draws near

MRF opens soon

 

Once in a blue moon the circumstances arise that bring about a rare and very special event.  When all is in place the world of mankind aligns with that of fantasy and a celebration occurs like seldom seen. At the merging of these two different realms a Faire springs up allowing folks of both to mingle amongst a shopping extravaganza. The Mystic Realms Faire is such an event and the wonderful news I bring is that it is about to open. At midday on the 10th October the portals to the two enchanting sims are thrown wide and all are welcomed.  Just remember to travel light especially with your scripts.

MRF-WebBanner

I was fortunate to be able to access a blogger preview and was absolutely entranced by the array of designers and items available. So I have much to share, I was lucky to be able to request blogger copies and have been excitedly unpacking and arranging items for blogging. A big thank you to the support and generosity of the designers.

First up a closer look at this gorgeous feathered gown without the post editing light effects. The feathers have a lovely iridescent sheen to them and the colours blend beautifully. The gown is mesh with an overlay skirt of long feathers and an optional jacket with feathered shoulders.

Lady Corvus, Vengeful Threads @ MRF

Next up the skin base for my look is the lovely Alaska from Lumae, I chose the palest tone and added extra lipstick to play up the purple eyeshadow. This skin has also a delicate trail of dots just above and to the side of the eyebrows so I chose the Royal Command hairstyle with add on crown to leave my forehead exposed. For added drama I added on the fantastic curved horns tipped in gold that are on display at Hopscotch at the Faire.

Alaska skin, Lumae+ Enchanted from Hopscotch

The perfect shoes were too well hidden by the long skirt of my gown so no peeking as I removed it for this last shot. ANE combines strength  in the form of brutal looking metal studs and a nice chunky heel with delicate straps in fantastic bright colours giving these shoes for Slink mid feet some definite wow factor .

High Studded Sandals Neon Plum, ANE @ MRF

Once the event is open the SLurls will be made available, but meanwhile set the clock and make sure you have some lindens ready to enjoy the Faire.

Details:
Skin:Alaska : 1 – Icing/The Oracle {Mid Cleavage}, Lumae ( COMING soon to Mystic Realms Faire)

Style, Style, Style! - Featuring !Lyrical B!zarre Templates from The Wash, Featuring Wicca's Wardrobe from The Couturier's Dock, Featuring LavandaChic from Four Seasons Market, Featuring Face Paint

Sometimes I get in the mood to style and style and style and forget to pause and take a photo, post notes about it, share it on my Facebook and blog and all that jazz. I guess on different days I'm more motivated by different things. Sometimes, I know you know, I write epistles!
Lyrical B!zarre Templates has items at this month's event, The Wash. It's a really huge, really inexpensive way to shop. The sky is the limit on the type of items they sell there including a portion of the outfit I have on... There's a lovely set of arm warmers, leg warmers and top for this pieced outfit, but I wanted to mix and match. The poncho from Lavanda Chic has almost the exact same color as the brightest color on the skirt and it's on these cute little squirrel tummies and can be purchased at the Four Seasons Market Event.
== Insert random thought here. Have you seen the movie UP? It's animated and some of you might not realize how special it is. If you watch it, you'll understand. It's my movie rental selection recommendation for this week, and its family friendly. The talking dog has conversations, but then finds himself easily distracted, "Squirrel!" and he's off running, no time to talk, being a dog == Fashion WICCA style - wonderfulamazingIwishIcouldseetheworldthroughhereyes! So now that she's creating clothing, I'm always on the edge of my seat, waiting eagerly to get a peek at the next great thing she releases. I'm a massive boots fan. I could own eleventy-one pair of boots and not have enough. You can find these Ripley Heels at The Couturier's Docks, but this event happens FAST zippety slick fast. The HUD allows for a whole array of autumnal colors and lets you play with the metallics and detail colors as well.

One of my most favorite of people, Eve Express, took time away from her business Face Paint, but after a six month hiatus, she's back and creating new items. I worked for and with her for two years, and lovingly call her 'Mom.' After my mother passed, well really long before that, there has been a little hole in my heart that needed a little filling. Eve made the time to fill that spot and for that, I'm forever a part of her and she a part of me. So, I said all that to tell you that she's got new makeup out and Trini G Lip is one of the new items. If you were in her group previously and left when the store closed, I suggest and encourage you to get back in that saddle because the adventure continues!

Team Fox and a Great Charity Event -- Featuring Sabra Style

My greatest passion amidst the passion I have for the fashion business in Second Life is how well and often this community of people participate in and celebrate and donate to charities. Today, at the LeFevre Mansion, I got to see some of the most beautiful models on the grid from BLVD rock the runway in an array of designs that were on display purely to raise finances for the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's.

To donate directly follow this link please: https://www.michaeljfox.org/get-involved/donation.php?fr_id=2380
At the LeFevre Manshion
Artizana Ethnic Couture, Blue Moon Enterprises, Dot-be fashion, Image Factory in Second Life, Sabra Style, Soul Designs, and Surplus Motors donated the items used in the fashion show with 100% of the proceeds donated going to the charity.
A Wonderful Reason To Celebrate
I looked in my little folder of "Blog Me" for a design by one of the designers represented at the event to show my support. (Not the designs shown that day but items I might have to blog from them from other places, other times, just to clarify...) I found Vivienne in Gold from Sabra Style by Kylie Sabra. I got to sit with her at the event, which made it even more special, and cheered on her many contributions as the BLVD models showcased them, and she and I both found the designs presented by the other designers in the show fantastic and cheered for them as well.

It's really hard for me to step out of my little work zone and go anywhere, really. I'm far more shy than many of you might have imagined, and the anxiety of 'I won't know anyone.' follows me whenever I do gather my wits and put on my brave face. Once I arrive, I'm usually so glad I made the effort to attend, but it's the making myself go part that I have to overcome. Events occurred all afternoon as part of this program, two fashion shows, live music, DJ music, and more. I attended the first fashion show and heard one of the musicians play. I even got to dance for a bit, after poking in IM and asking if he liked to dance, would he dance with a stranger.

Marcus LeFevre and his team, Team Fox and all of their representatives, and everyone else responsible for making the event possible made it beautiful as well.

Losing My Ground

Losing My Ground

Happy Saturday! Today is such a weird day of weather here in South Florida! First it was sunny, then there was a gloomy hour of non stop rain…moments later it is very sunny outside. That won’t be the last of the rain though. It is expected to rain and produce inches of rain so my butt is staying inside and enjoying some comfort foods :D Talking about comfort food, we have opened our place for you all to come and enjoy! You will see this harvesty bit with such warmth and golden colors…and as you progress it gets dark and gloomy into a house where perhaps a murder transpired? Who knows, you are allowed to make your own perceptions :)

Today I am blogging on a few new items. This dress is one of the newest items from Twenty. 13 called Raegan and comes in an array of colors. Also new from the Jewelry Fair is this set from Zenith called Rita(thankies Ema!). It has a collarbone lace necklace and earrings in either gold or silver. Finally, I was accepted again to Bella Elephante (THANK YOU) to blog her cosmetics. I am rocking the newest group gift which are slink appliers for the fingernails and toenails called Nightly Sparkles. Make sure you check out these places for new and awesome stuffage.

Fall Formals at Liv Glam


Liv Glam has started to release its Fall 2014 fashion line and this weekend that consists of an array of gorgeous mesh with optional flexi attachment formals. I love an all mesh base formal with a bit of swoosh as an option- those are my absolute favorite kind and they are being released in abundance this weekend at Liv Glam! They are all being released at introductory low rates for  Super Sales Weekend (SSW), Steals and Deals, or Fantastic Friday- all located in the main LG store.  Liv Glam has a new main store so make sure to update your landmarks when you take a trip to see the new fall fashions. 


Here you can see the mesh base of the formal which can be worn as is if you prefer mesh only or the swishy flexi attachments that you can choose to add as well on Petite Rose. This gives the designs great versatility. It is gorgeous either way. I prefer the mesh and the flexi together and I am so happy these come that way so I can SWOOSH. 


Look at the colors on Port Royal Azul! The blues and greens are almost sparkly irridescent, gorgeous! This one comes with optional "mermaid" style flexi. 


I am ready to go salsa dancing in "Inside a Dream." It does not have any flexi options but it does have gorgeous mesh ruffles surrounding the lower portion and culminating in a very sexy side slit.

One Day... Featuring .::Dead Dollz::., ~ghee and .:JUMO:. from .PENUMBRA. Fashion Week, KaTink Poses and no. 7

**Warning: One of my crazy long winded notes!

Some day, I want to grow up and be my avatar self. I would go to all the fabulous parties, never wearing the same attire twice. I would borrow jewelry from Tiffany's and have body guards to protect me from being mauled because I had on 3.2 million dollars worth of diamonds. I would have automatic everything. Maybe even an automatic 'mom response' to some of the incessant questions that do NOT stop when the child you once knew becomes a tall, grown... well... child. I'd have the fancy house down by the water that's on Cao's blog today. (I rarely reblog because we're all inundated with loads of data here and there, but well, I want her fancy house and it plays perfectly into my fantasy!) -- http://anchailinalainn.com/2014/09/19/bricks-and-mortar/ I'd have parties every night, music with live musicians to play it, food catered from only the best places, and some sort of amazing medication like the ultra-sexy Bradley Cooper takes in the movie Limitless and... if you haven't seen Limitless, put it on your weekend to rent at Redbox or wherever in your world you grab the movie and popcorn. You won't regret it. And you'll understand why I would need such a drug. With great parties come great people, great dancing, and I've heard it said, though I'm not sure if it's rumor or truth, great parties often lead to great sex. SEE WHY I want to grow up to be me?
For now, I will stick to pretending, to playing Barbie and to appreciating the expanse of designers who help create the imagery of my fantasy world. This time, I have on a new gown from .::Dead Dollz::. and I'm not sure, but I think it's the first time it's ever appeared on my blog. The mini-collection I got to see as part of .PENUMBRA. Fashion Week piqued my interest immediately when I saw the names of the items. The box was called Heisenberg and the gown I chose to share is Gray Matter. If you're fans of the hit series Breaking Bad (alas, it finished it's last season in 2013 ack!), the names would amuse and entertain. If you're really die hard Trivia nuts and Breaking Bad is your thing, you'd really enjoy the names of the items produced for this week!

People want bloggers to work with their items, and of course that's what we do and why we're there. In such a massive project like .PENUMBRA. countless designers have added their flair. Many many gowns, a few cocktail/clubbing dresses, a random rare pant suit or jeans set, and then accessories after that. Unfortunately, there are only so many gowns that could be styled in a period of two weeks. However, I know countless bloggers who are trying to do as much as they can and so am I. I'm grateful when I open a box that has jewelry, hair, heels, or other trinkets that add to the ability to puzzle the pieces together in such a way that each outfit is a mix and match of those event(s) that are in progress. I share this because I hope it helps encourage designers to mix it up a little. If I have a box with 4 pair of heels from one designer, and no one else sends heels out, then I will have 4 blogs with the same designer illustrated because they came from that event. But for the designer who sends 4 gowns, I pick the one I think best suits my tastes, and go from there.

And I shared all that to say that this .PENUMBRA. Fashion Week had .:JUMO:. as one of the contributing designers and the array of items submitted to work with from there allowed for multiple pieces to be used. I try to share the love. That's a good way to put it I think and one other bloggers use as well. I don't want to be an Events blogger who ends up only working with three or four designers. I switched to being a full time, fully invested Events blogger so I could be exposed to new creations by new people I've never tried. JUMO, thank you for all the accessories you created and shared! The jewelry in this styling, Salimah OnixDiamonds, made the elegant look even more refined. And ~ghee, who also sent an array of things that allowed for more than one blog entry, shared this purse. It's basic black and silver, but the strands of leather on the side of the purse changes hue with a HUD.

KaTink shares items that I sort and use in different ways at different times. KaTink Poses has poses, props, items for couples, for romance, for besties, for group gatherings and more. If I could have a KaTink pose set for my 23 family members on my Mr's side of the family, Thanksgiving would be so much easier, right? Only if that were possible. I get pouty (really, occasionally I do!) at times, because I don't have a special someone who would hop into pair poses with me. Most of the time, as a result, I do the static poses and backgrounds. This time, I realized the Pose Meh pack had poses AND a little prop. I set up a little scene, and 'Posed Meh'. Hahaha... and one more quick note. The bright red sign comes from no. 7, and from a box that has a number of other creepy signs, police tape and things I think are preparing us for Halloween.

HGE Finds


There are literally many hundreds of items to choose from at the Home and Garden Expo.  Here are a few that caught my eye. And, I should let you know that you can do your pre-shopping perusals on the website where many items are listed. Not everyone has been good little boys and girls though, so don't consider the listings ALL there is to see -- by any means! Each merchant has a full array of items for your shopping pleasure.

One of my favorite donation items is this Kaerri Garden Piano which comes WITH grass and all the plants. It isn't for those on a prim counting budget (27) but oh so cute. And if you ARE on a prim budget you can opt for the very cheery umbrella planter to the left. It weighs in at four.


You can rough it in style with this texture change cot from .:revival:., a fun store to explore. It comes with many animations for gals, guys and couples.


If you are lucky enough to never have to worry about land impact points, you might want to check out this impressive rockery at Heart Garden Center. Very lovely!

And that reminds me to remind you who DO need to be prim counters ---

there are many gorgeous items at the Expo that are not the least bit light on land impact points. It may be wise to check before you buy.  If you find the land impact is not given on the vendor, you can go to the BUILD menu and make sure that " Build - Options - Select On MY Objects" is NOT active. Then you can edit the item you are interested in and see the prim count.  Just a hint from your always land impact cautious guide.

And if you are looking for some seasonal color at "weekend" prices, check out the pottery vase and sticks at ChiC buildings. Four colors to choose from. Orange is the RFL donation item.

There is also an impressive hunt item to be had and a dollarbie in the store.

OK. I know this is a vendor photo but I have been working 10 hour days all week and I am TIRED.


ENJOY the EXPO!
