Aphrodite Store - Microwave NEW!

All hail, the brand spankin new microwave from Aphrodite ! Its JUST what I’ve been wanting for so so SO long. Sure I’ve got microwaves before, plenty for décor purposes , but this one reigns supreme. First off its just 4 Li , and secondly it actually cooks food for you to eat ! It really does, I’ve done extensive uhm…checking…and I’m impressed. Just touch the item and select what you’d like to eat (there are 12 different foods). My favourite is the heart shaped burger (awwww I’m an old romantic) Click the buttons on the side and your food “cooks”. The meal will let of a little steam, this indicates its ready to snarf down. Open the door, touch the food and it goes directly to your hand for chomping – isn’t that just brilliant?! No items clogging up your inventory, you don’t have to even open your inventory, or add anything – its allllll automatic hoooray! The microwaves comes in a large array of colours, so you can be sure to find one to fit into your kitchen. Thanks Marina <3

Candyland the Show

As well as presenting three themed selling areas showcasing an array of Secondlife designers, the Month Of Games also has a series of events to celebrate the games : Candyland,  Chess and Clue. This Weekend I managed to catch one of the Candyland shows and will share a selection of photos.

candyland show ride

There were a series of sweet themed zones connected by a rainbow candy bridge, the audience was conveyed along the bridge in candy cars – what a cute idea.

candyland - peppermint

At each stop there was a collection of cute, fun , crazy characters  with a short script explaining the outfits and the Candyland characters.

candyland - lady in waiting

Some of the models had actions or animations, throwing candy at the cars, waving or dancing making this an entertaining show. It was great to see such a memorable show that fitted the theme perfectly. Congratulations to all of the models, set builders, script writers and organisers. I will definitely be planning to attend more of the Month of Games events. For anyone who is thinking the same thing scroll down to see the times on the Calendar of Events, maybe I will see you there!

PurpleMoon & ZoZ @ The Month of Games Event, New Theonilla & Co., Elephante Poses, elua @ Hair Fair 2014, New WoW Skins and Freebies!

A few Days ago I posted about an upcoming Event call The Month of Games, well the Day has come. TMoG opened Today!  This Event challenges Designers to create something around Board Games!

Lilliana is wearing PurpleMoon’s Lolli.  PurpleMoon creator Poulet Koenkamp was Inspired by the Game Candyland!  The Lolli is Pretty in Pink and includes a Mesh Hat, Dress and Handbag, TYSVM PK!  Another exclusive from The Month of Games is -{ZOZ’s}- Who Mesh Finger Nails and SLink Applier on Toe Nail Polish.  Who Mesh are Mesh Finger Nails that work perfectly with SLink Elegant, Casual and Elegant 1 Hands.  They are fit for a size 10 and 20 hand, so if you don’t wear SLink, you can fit them to your Avatar as well.  -{ZOZ’s}- Who Mesh also comes with a SLink Applier for the Feet, so you can perfectly match your finger and toe nails!  Both PurpleMoon’s Lolli and -{ZOZ’s}- Who Mesh are available now only at The Month of Games Event!

I also told you about a new Designer that has Lilli on her Blogging Team.  At the moment, Theonilla & CO is working via a MarketPlace Store, I am sure very soon an in-world Store will open.  Theonilla & CO is a maker of SLink Shoes, and Jewelry.  For Today’s Post, Lilli is sporting Theonilla & CO’s Celebrity Heels for Slink Mid Feet in Magenta, and an array of Jewelry like Lilli’s Nike tes Samothrakes Silver Earrings, Andromeda Necklace in Silver, and Medusa Bangle w/ Diamond Eyes in SilverShow some Linden love to new Designer Theonilla & CO and buy something! :)

So you all know that Lil has been covering Hair Fair 2014, yesterday’s post gave you all the details around the Hair Fair and the charity the event sponsors Wigs for Kids. Lil’s Hair this time is +elua’s+ Shena from the  Dark Brown Pack.  Shena is a lovely ponytail, with two versions of the Hair in the pack one is the regular Ponytail, the other works fantastically with Hats!  If you visit +elua’s+ store at Hair Fair there is a free Hat to wear with Shena, Lil isn’t wearing it in this post, but is wearing the Hat from PurpleMoon’s Lolli, so you can see how great the Hair works with Hats!

Everything I talked about so far could fall under the topic of newness as well as special events, now I have some real newness, it’s Wow Skins Melodia!  Melodia was just released, Comes in 4 different Skin Tones, and many different Make-Up options, Lil is showing Dark Tan.  To get Melodia, just take my Link to Wow’s main store!

I promised Freebies and I have them.  So a little information first, Elephante Poses is celebrating 2 years in business!  Not only is EP celebrating, but you could too, Elephante creator Mєяidα (melissajeanne.flores) has not one but two 5 Pose Sets on the welcome counter for Free, just stop on by them for Free.  While there, why not a least join the Subscriber, if you do, you could get another Pose Set, Mini one.  If you join Elephante’s VIP Group, there is another full pose Set for the VIPs, VIP members get new gifts each Month.  Ms. Corleone is using the poses from the Rather Be Pose Set in Today’s Post!  Please note, I do not know how long the Anniversary Pose Sets will be available at Elephante, so you if you want them, don’t wait!

The second Freebie comes with a slight hitch.  Poetic Colors has these beautiful Green Eyes, Opal Eyes Grape Leaves for Subscribers.  Here’s the Hitch you must be a Poetic Color Subscriber Member for at least 30 Days before you can get these Eyes.  So join the Scriber than make your calendar for 30 Days and in no time you will be about to get these beautiful Eyes!

pretty purple and pastel pieces!

Happy fifty linden Friday, fabbies!

Today I have a super quickie post for you, and you’ll have to be super quick to grab some of these items!

Pastel pretties_001
I always rush over to grab the FLF hair that Wasabi pills puts out because it’s usually a new release, and the 2 colours (crystal pink and crystal violet) are exclusively available for just one day! Earlier today, the fabulous Xiu did a beautiful job showing off the pink version of this hair [HERE] but I wanted to pair the purple with all of my pretty pastels!

Pastel pretties_003

This beautiful mint-green floral coffin shaped purse is a FLF item from Adore & abhor, and I absolutely HAD to have it! It’s only available today, so you’d better hurry and grab it, and while you’re there, do check out the sale they have going on! Everything in their shop is 50% off right now, and there are just way too many good deals for me to list

Pastel pretties_004

My lovely little yellow sundress is a free lucky board prize from Cila. The dress is FITTED MESH, and as such, only comes in one size, however, I tried this on a huge number of shapes in a wide array of sizes, and it fit about 90% of them beautifully with no modification, and the rest with slight shape tweaking, so this is definitely a must-try item for anyone who is new to the fitmesh world! You DO have to join the group, however, it’s free!

Pastel pretties_005

and finally, these suuuuuuper cute nails are a freebie from A:S:S! I LOVE the little beards! A:S:S has put these out (in 8 great glittery colours) in celebration of Conchita Wurst becoming the first drag queen to win the Eurovision competition. I say congratulations, and you go, girl!

Hair Fair 2014 …

What an amazing array we have to choose from at this year’s hair fair. There is something for everyone and I swear there are more designers than ever. The thing I love about the hair fair is that it is a guilt free reason to shop with much of the profits going to Wigs For Kids and also I almost always find a new designer or hairstyle that I fall totally in love with. I so did not budget for so many great styles. I have to showcase today this new at least new to me brand ELUA I fell for this short crop hairstyle and also this long style with a plait detail that is bot sweet and chic.
I also have to give praise to my skin creator because I used to be someone who changed her skin with her outfit but It has been 8 months and I am still loving my LENA from Elysium.

Glam Rock - Last Day of Rhapsody & First Day of Hair Fair!!!

The glitter, the eccentric clothes, the big hair - who doesn't love Glam Rock?
Well today is the last day of Rhapsody and I got some Glam Rock Fever!
Sooo lovin' the 'Rock Vest' by Peqe, which is available in several colour options. This could be worn in so many ways, I can see it making it out of my inventory on a few occasions!
And of course some sparkles would be necessary to make any outfit glam - so these 'Fever Glitter' boots by Just Design were perfect. They come in an array of colours but that's not the best bit - each includes 3 styles. There is the tight thigh boot as shown below, but also a knee boot and shoe (for both JD MyFeet and mid SLink feet) included. So these really are great value for money!  Also, if glitter isn't your thing you can grab the suede versions instead!

Hair Fair 2014 is open and their are 4 sims full of new hair to choose from! Adoness has 3 brand new styles, including the one I'm wearing below. All hair purchased at the event helps to benefit Wigs For Kids!

Collabor88 - July 2014

My fingers smell like the BBQ sauce of cheating on blogging... apparently.

This is what your friends end up making you say when you go out to eat BBQ chicken wings instead of working on your blog post.

Quickly moving forwards because it's started very weird... Collabor88 is back with Safari Chic!

I was honestly expecting it to be a light shopping round for me but I was OH SO WRONG. I think I spent more during this round than any other I've ever gone to. Damn you Collabor88 with your sneak shopping attacks and making me want all the things!

Anyway... onto the goodies!

Mutresse is a guest in this round and have brought with them a lovely romper with all their usual multicolour hud awesomeness

Collabor88 - July 2014 - Mutresse Friday Spellbound

Packed full of great safari chic colours and it's a great value buy. I just had to team it with the stunning Safari Tribe jewellery from ISON. A necklace and matching bracelet and ring. You can just buy the pieces you want in a choice of three metal colours.

The Laura Heels are another great release from Fri.day. They always have fantastic shoes and this pair require the SLink medium feet.

This is the first time I've seen Spellbound at Collabor88 (I might be wrong, maybe I didn't spot them before). They have a great new hairstyle called Toothbrush that comes with or without a colour change bow. I love the braided fringe, it's super cute.

Tres Blah really grabbed my attention with their release for this round

Collabor88 - July 2014 - TresBlah Clawtooth

I'm loving the Khaki Shorts and Khaki Shirt. The shape on the shorts is gorgeous and they fit wonderfully. Got to love the booty on these.

The shirt is made to fit with them and you have the option to change the undershirt with a hud, or remove it entirely if you wanted to flash a bit more flesh.

They also released some fantastic mesh fitted boots to go with this outfit. Great for romping around on safari!

The hair, with the colour change hat, is from Clawtooth. It comes in two different lengths. I went for the Adventure Girl length which is slightly shorter. The hat changes several colours to match all your safari outfits from this round.

If you wanted a shorter romper than The Secret Store has a great one with a nice thick colour change belt. You have the option to wear it with or without one of the two different jackets that you can purchase separately. This is the Noah Cropped Jacket and has nice long sleeves. I preferred this version to the sleeveless one.

Collabor88 - July 2014 - TSS Boom Spellbound

The Tired Sole Sandals are a great Birkenstock style sandal from Boom. These are super cute and remind me of a pair I had in real. Seriously the most comfortable sandals I ever owned and I'm sure if avies could feel that these would be that comfortable too!

Celoe have brought an adorable shirt style dress to Collabor88

Collabor88 - July 2014 - Celoe Clawtooth Friday

It comes with the gold belt attached. It takes a basic shirt dress to something a bit classy and sexier. I really like that this looks more like a double breasted jacket than just a simple shirt.

I teamed it with alternative colours of the Fri.day Laura Heels and the Adventure Girl Clawtooth hair. I think it's more suited to sipping drinks in a club house than out on safari though.

Baiastice have released a fantastic short skirt and vest top in a vast array of colours.

Collabor88 - July 2014 - Baiastice PurePoison Spellbound

You have choices of plain colours or some pretty funky animals prints for both the top and skirt. Of course I had to grab the sexy leopard print version of the skirt.

The Helen Sandals are from Pure Poison and require the SLink medium feet to wear them. I love how detailed they sandals are, pure poison has been really impressing me with their shoes recently.

If you are bit less inclined to go scampering around in the wilderness then maybe you'd like to curl up on this gorgeous Safari Bed from Scarlet Creative.

Collabor88 - July 2014 - Teefy Spellbound

It has a version that you can use with or without the blinds. It's a stunning bed with great details.

The Sadie Shirt and Sahara Shorts are great for lounging around in or even a nice day at the beach. I loved this tropical looking jungle print shirt. The shoes are the Sienna Gladiator Sandals, which are also from Teefy, and you'll need the SLink flat feet for these.

Sorry for the long post, there were just so many beautiful things to show you.

Happy Shopping!

Last Week's Highlights

It's not the first time that I'm showcasing a mesh avatar on this blog, but this one comes without the extra-muscled shape and is actually a bit scrawny by SL standards. Still, I enjoyed messing around with the shape (used my own since the one included is no mod), changing about every slider I could to give him a personal touch: Now folks, say hello to Anthony! 

Anthony comes with 4 different skin tones and a large array of alphas to make him wear all kinds of standard mesh clothes, all controlled via one HUD. Since this is the light version for a cheap price, the head comes without the usual features like different eye brow colours, different beard styles or multiple hair bases. I especially miss the hair bases, since a lot of my favourite hairstyles absolutely need one, but fortunately I found 2 or 3 styles in my inventory that go well with Anthony Lite

I'll try to have him wear a prim beard in my next post, since I'm not yet done with the guy, I kinda like him, don't you?

More from the upcoming The Secret Affair which opens soooooon on 15th of July through to the 29th July and the theme this round is ‘A Midsummer Nights Dream’ . I am a huge Little Bones fan, i LOVE LOVE her blonde textures and styles, so you can imagine my delight when this little gem, Baptism, dropped into my inventory – CURLS, pretty, gorgeous, tumbling ringlets – BLONDE .. pretty ribbons .. omg – i have not taken it off since. I just adore the style, pretty enough to wear casually, or dressed up to wear formally. The pearls and the ribbons (at the back) are colour changeable via hud, so you can wear it with most every outfit !

The armour is also available at the event, this will be a gacha item from Luas. The Ophelia Armour will be the RARE item offered at the gacha and comprises of bracers, arm bracelets, pauldrons, collar/necklace and a bra-let top, all in gold. To go with this armour, there will also be gorgeous full length, flowing skirts in an array of colours as the commons.

All White Mini

The Skin is  Glam Affair. Aida’s release for A Seasons Story<3 Summer is the gorgeous Cassia skin – shown here in a BRAND NEW TONE  ‘Exotic’. Now, im not normally one who likes tanned skin with blonde hair – for me, it’s a huge no-no but that is my personal opinion. HOWEVER, this new tone, exotic, allows even the lightest of blondes, to have that ‘sunkissed’ in all the right places, look – without it being overdone and looking like you stepped out of the 70′s. In each skin (as they are sold seperately), you will find different brow colour options as well as appliers for Slink Physique, hands, feet – Lola’s, and Linc Phatazz. Pretty nifty uh ?

Also at A Seasons Story, i picked up this gorgeous dress which i am wearing as an overshirt right now. From Vive Nine, the Helena side split tank is exactly that. A gorgeous summery tank you can wear as i am now, over leggings, or as a slave – with nothing underneath, except the breeze

The only problem with visiting A Seasons Story right now, is that it will take willpower, patience and probably a new mouse, to click your way in as it’s pretty full – but good luck and happy shopping !

Rhapsody with a Jazz riff


Raphsody in the riff of Jazz

This is another post focused pretty much on Rhapsody, with my outfit and all the furniture coming from this fabulous event.  The chairs and benches from Kuro are all texture change and come in both suede and leather.  I have used two wall benches and one corner bench in the picture above.   My house is not really ready for showing decor, as I have only just changed houses and I have literally just started decorating so there are none of my own bits about, but I wanted to show you these things which I really loved. 

The Kuro jazz neon pics come in 3 styles, and 3 colour choices in each style - they can also be switched on and off depending on your preferences.  What I particularly love are the cables and wall plugs that are attached, which add an incredible note of realism.  I am showing two of 3 different jazz prints from Kokolores, all as stylish as can be expected from Sisch Firecaster!

Rhapsody in the riff of Jazz

My outfit is from [ SAKIDE ] for Rhapsody and is beautifully textured and available in an array of gorgeous rich colours.  My earrings are from aru, the new accessory store opened by Luana Dawg of Kuro, and the items are really unusual and sheer perfection as you would expect from Luana. These earrings are beautifully made and available in brass as well as the pewter I am wearing.  My necklace is from [LNS Designs], and I will be wearing the matching earrings and bracelet in an upcoming post.

By the way there should have been a wall behind me in the pic above but I accidentally derendered the house - makes a change from deleting it!

A Little Bit Of Everywhere -- Featuring [Liv-Glam] at Designer Showcase, *Stars*Fashion* at Summer Fashion Festival and !:Lybra:!

[Liv-Glam] already has items out for the next Designer Showcase. I used the same dress here but two different color combinations from the HUD that had six options to choose from...
The jewelry from !:Lybra:! added one more reason why I love this store. If you haven't been lately, you might want to pop in and see what's new.
A whole array of items have been added, from hair and makeup to purses and other accessories thanks to the new addition of items from Natzuka Miliandrovic.

This blog was possible as a result of these amazing designers:

Summer Fashion Festival (Last Day): ArisAris and Blue Couture - Designer Showcase: [Opal] and Moondance Boutique - Plus Zibska and KANDINSKY

Today marks the last day of the summer fun event, Summer Fashion Festival and I've two more items to show you from there before the day ends. If you'll notice, there's a simple black dress with white dots as the basic element of my styling. The dress is ArisAris, and its simplicity with just a few fine details like those around the bust are one reason I enjoyed this dress despite the fact that it looks similar to many I have worn. The accessories I used are from Blue Couture, and they were designed to accompany a night gown / lingerie set. Instead I pulled one of the feathered arm pieces, the unique belted posture collar and the belt and added them to spice up the dress.
Designer Showcase runs a month at a time and always brings new designers to the table, as well as providing a great venue for more well known designers to offer special prices and expose new faces to their great quality items. This styling includes items from two different jewelers, both with several pieces at Designer Showcase July. Moondance Boutique's Gaia earrings shine just a bit and lit my cheek up just a smidge when I was standing with the sun setting. It was a neat lighting effect. The ring comes in several color options from [Opal] and worked well into my shades of grey styling.

Zibska made this 'ball and chain' type hat for an event that occurred recently and I had not quite figured out when to use it. I almost used a different hat, but my sweetheart who's been home all weekend and thus eyes over my shoulder at times asked me, "Why would you wear a flower pot on your head?" So instead of explaining to him that it was couture and sexy ~grin~ I went through my box of hats that I haven't blogged yet and asked, "This one?" about 11 times before he said, "Yes!" So Zibska, like the judges on all these reality shows say, "You made it through." The hat's name is Sadie Noir. I just think it looks a bit like the old ball and chain used in some movies to represent poor old married folks, and in this case, the ball and chain helped me make a decision for this styling, so with tongue in cheek, yay!
I still have an array of items from KANDINSKY that I want to show. They're also from an event that concluded recently but I couldn't bear to through them away as they seem to mirror some of my favorite items from Game of Thrones, and for that alone, they get a bit longer in my inventory before I separate and discard, and low and behold, the Willow heels for SLink mid-high feet fit this style exactly! With all the puzzle pieces together, I really loved the overall look. Black and white stay in style every season. I promise to make the next blog POP with color but this time, shades of grey won the day.

So many great designers are represented here. Thanks to each of you!
