50 Shades of Sexy: Pour Some Sugar On Me

I’m late, I’m late! But at least I’ve come up with something for this week. The clouds are lifting and I am beginning to get into the creative mood again!

I decided to have a little fun this week and make my very hard working Malt, Ian, a super-special strawberry shake! Don’t I look proud?

50 Shades of Sexy: Pour Some Sugar On Me - Say Cheese!

In my over-excitement it seems I became a bit clumsy! It’s a good thing I’m wearing my Sweetheart Lingerie set from Mon Cheri. He can’t stay mad at me when I look so cute, right?

50 Shades of Sexy: Pour Some Sugar On Me - Oooops!

I’m also wearing the newest skin from Izzie’s called Harlow. After her Ginevra release, I thought I had found my “go-to” skin for sure. But, but, but… THEN she released Harlow and I think I’m in love. It will be a while before I pry this one off of my body. I accented the vintage look with some cat-eye eyeliner from Panda Punx and this cute pin-up style ‘do from Truth.

Here’s a raw shot so you can see just how beautifully this skin wears inworld!

To-die-for, right? Happy shopping!

Take care of each other <3

Finding Peace in Solitude

My RL home has become a bit crowded lately and am increasingly missing the days of solitude I used to enjoy. I know it’s only temporary, a year and a half or so at best, but still it takes some adjusting. I miss being able to slip on my favorite comfy shirt and lounge around enjoying my peace and quiet. I don’t know about you all but having people constantly in motion around me makes it difficult for me to focus, difficult to breathe…

Finding Peace in Solitude

Above you can see I’m lounging around on a cozy rug that’s a part of Prism Furniture’s Immerse Yourself Set for the Four Walls Hunt.

Today I stole a little time inworld to relax and center myself. I hope you all find time to do the same.

The Right One

I’ve just started a fun new dealy over at [SL] Blogger Support called Inspire Me. Basically each week I’ll put out a list of blog prompts, one for each day, with the hopes of encouraging people to blog daily, or at least to get them over a hump if they’re stuck.

Monday’s prompt for this week is “Unforgettable Quotes.”  Usually I’m all over the place with inspirational and encouraging quotes, but the photos I took have inspired me to lean more towards the comical side of the fence this time. My friend Krisy helped me pick out a suitable quote and I think you will be pleased with the choice. *giggles*

CINEMA: Mr. Senator’s Transgression and Repentance

Today’s post is focused purely on two awesome poses I discovered at Cinema 2012. Being a movie buff myself, as I was taking the photos and discussing them with one of my friends, the story of “Mr. Senator” was born.

This hot pose by Bounce This called Yield, featured at Cinema 2012. I wanted to do something a little different from the other photos I’ve seen with this pose, so I went for a contrast of innocence and corruption. I asked Jake to take on the role of “Mr. Senator”  and I was channeling the young intern “Ali” being called out of her house for an emergency “meeting.”  Seems like she’ll be tied up for a while. ‘Eh, see what I did there?

Bounce-This-Cinema-Pose1

In this next frame, it seems that the Senator’s transgressions have been discovered and his perfectly coiffed trophy wife, “Brenda” looks more than a little unimpressed with his apology. Perhaps she should go Lorena Bobbit on his butt? The pose is by the fantabulous Adorkable Peapod and is called Surrender.

Hmm it looks like Mrs. Senator might have a little surprise in store for her philandering husband. Tsk, tsk, tsk. Adorkable-JH-Laph-Kal-Rau2

Both of these poses are available right now at Cinema 2012. Create your own drama!

Transitional Seasons

Transitional seasons are always my favorite. Winter to Spring, Spring to Summer, Summer to Fall… the temperatures always seem to be ideal. In RL, our temperatures keep fluctuating between scorching hot, and hot and humid. Not so fun! Today, however, was a perfect 75 degrees and I loved every single minute of it.

There’s nothing like walking through the park, as the leaves turn and taking in the hint of crispness in the air.
Fall_005_full color
The Floral mesh dress from Anymore, although it’s sleeveless, is decorated with the colors of fall, and is the perfect transitional dress for the change of season. Accented with the Lydia necklace and earrings from Maxi Gossamer (which are color change, btw. Gotta love that!) bring the look together. My Backstage hair in Noisette is a group gift from Vanity Hair and comes in about a million and a half colors, and the bows are color change as well. And yes, I still haven’t been able to put shoes over my cool mesh feet from Skifija. I know you’re tired of seeing my naked piggies, but I just can’t help it!! Plus, the cool leaves feel pretty awesome between my toes right now!

Foot Loose and Fancy Free with Zodiac and Skifija!

I dropped in to Zodiac yesterday, to pick up the super cute Shy Adorkable poses I saw on my Plurk timeline, and as soon as I walked in the door I saw this really lovely Earth Princess Maxi/Bird mesh sundress from [AddiCt] and that kind of set the tone for my blog post today.

I am clinging on to Summer with both hands, and with my brand new SKIFIJA- Feet 2 + 2 Classic Heels V.2.0  mesh bare feet. Apparently.  Can you feel the cool water tickling your toes?

MirrorDress_3_blog
This isn’t the first pair of mesh feet I’ve come across, but much like the search for the perfect pair of mesh jeans from earlier this week, I wasn’t going to buy feet unless I was sure they were perfect for me. Other’s I’d tried were super cute, but I just couldn’t get the shape to fit my ankles properly. These fit my legs with no adjusting what-so-ever.

I wish I could say the same for the color-matching but, I guess I can’t have everything! Fortunately for those of you who have LAQ and Redgrave skins, these feet come with color change sets for both of those creators. The rest of us will just have to fiddle with the color hud until we get it right. The creator also provides you with an instruction card and a website that can help you get the perfect color match.

The foot hud also enables you to get the perfect fit, and change nail polish colors. The coolest thing about these feet is that the creator also makes shoes that fit them, and I cannot wait to try a pair. Maybe next week, hmm?

UPDATE: Goran, the creator for SKIFIJA contacted me inworld after I sent him a notecard and offered to make a match for my skin! Now THAT my dear little fashionistas is what we call EXCELLENT customer service! I wish all Second Life Fashion creators were as kind. Those are the little things that keep customers coming back again and again. Thank you Goran, I can’t wait to see the results!

I accessorized with some gorgeous Giselle Opal Jewelry Set in Dreamy Blu jewelry from by Maxi Gossamer.  I only wore the rings and the earrings, but you can’t really see them very well, so here is a picture from their marketplace ad.

This was my first purchase from Maxi Gossamer and I am really impressed with the quality, especially for the price! I’ll be checking back there often!

Have a great Friday everyone! Much love!
