As I was building this scene, even before I’d decided whether to put myself in it or not, I kept thinking to myself “clutter, more clutter” thanks, Adalynne *snickers* Seriously, I had a lot of fun creating this scene and I took a lot of pieces from different creators to do it but all in all I think it turned out pretty well.
On9 is in full force and you still have time to get over there and get some truly amazing items, like this kitchen from Newchurch. This set comes with 10 pieces, all separately so you can move them to the desired position, I chose to create a corner nook with my pieces and added some various gacha pieces and other decor items to complete my look. I’ll get into those in a bit. There are poses built into several of these pieces like the stove and sink.
I went to The Epiphany, which opened today, with a very specific goal in mind. I got distracted along the way, but I got my goal in the long run. Hive has this adorable vintage kitchen clutter gacha available right now. There are a total of 11 pieces, 1 rare and 10 commons. The exclusive prize is that beautiful piece of art that says “The Secret Ingredient is Always Love”. You can redeem unwanted gachas for point and redeem those points for exclusive prizes.
Jian, of course, has another adorable animal gacha at The Epiphany. The Dashing Dalmations and when I saw this little guy I had to have him. He was completely perfect to complete my scene of exasperation. 16 commons and 3 rares can be yours when you play for this set.
I love Doe hair, eventually, I’d like to be an official blogger for this store but until that day comes I will continue to buy these adorable styles. This gacha includes 14 commons and 4 rares and comes as an unrigged mesh, so it’s perfect for all your little ones out there too. The HUD also offers the option to turn your bangs on and off.
The pose is from Foxcity and the fatpack comes with this exclusive pose with an attachable cup. I thought it was perfect for my sheer lack of will to complete the task at hand, cleaning up this filthy kitchen!
I swore I was going to get this blog written today and I will. Sometimes I see items from designers and immediately the wheels start turning. Ideas float in my head aching to be brought to fruition. With this set of pictures today I had help from my good friend Adalynne Romano if you haven’t seen her blog before you really should check it out. She’s what I want to be when I grow up. Her decor blogging is just phenomenal. So when I was setting the scene for this post I asked for her help and what you see is the final product.
This scene was created by taking several amazing items from decor creators all over the grid. The trees, hill, and grass are all from the amazing The Little Branch. This funky tree, snow hill, and grass are all part of the brand new set from FaMESHed. This set also includes 2 other grass types, another hill, and a frozen deer. The big tree is animated and just looks absolutely gorgeous inworld.
The cute animals are from Half Deer and United InshCon. The Deer family comes with all three animals and are gacha, and the foxes are part of an old gacha that I was lucky enough to find on the MP. They all completed my scene so fantastically. The other trees pictured are also from The Little Branch available inworld and on the MP.
Little Branch– Cedar Tree v2, Cedar Tree v3, Giant Cedar animated, Red Elder
The outfit is several pieces that came together to create a great winter look. MOoH! has this adorable puffer coat with attached shirt available at The Frozen Fair. This jacket comes with a HUD that includes 6 colors, the shirt is black and is not color change. This jacket is fit for all three Belleza bodies, Ebody, Maitreya, both Slink bodies, Ocacin, TMP, and both Tonic bodies, as well as standard fitmesh sizes. I paired it with some older leggings from Blueberry and voila my look was created.
I completed my look with a brand new hair from Limerence and super cute boot from Empire. Both are available right now at Winter Trend. The hair comes with a hat that you can wear with the hair or separately or not at all. This is my first experience with Limerence and I’m impressed, I’ll be checking more of these hairs out in the future. The boots are made for all 3 Belleza, Maitreya, and both Slink bodies. They come with a full-color change HUD including 20 colors for the boots and straps and 22 colors for the socks as well as 20 colors for the sole and 3 metal colors. I just love Empire.
Part of my thought involved this pose. When I had thoughts swirling around my brain on how to make this picture come to life this pose was foremost in my thoughts. This is a couple pose and is bento, I feel bad asking people to collaborate with me and I didn’t feel like buying stuff for my alts since I am never on them anyway why would I want to spend more money on them? This pose is still fabulous for one person and you can grab it inworld and on the MP.
I really wish I had been able to get to blogging this head this weekend while it was still on sale, however real life comes first and taking care of my kids is the utmost importance to me. LAQ released Scarlet at a special price for this past weekend only, it is now full price of 5000L. It comes with the motion capture head, HUD, shape, three eye colors, 11 gestures, 3 voice animations, and an eyebrow shape.
It is absolutely adorable right out of the box, I didn’t modify the face at all for this post and will play with my shape later on. I had tried LAQ when bento first came out and I couldn’t bring myself to spend the Lindens wanted for the mesh heads. Now I am collecting quite a few heads so hearing that this head was on sale I knew I had to try it and review it. Omega is already built into this head, no need for additional HUDs either, so you can wear your favorite skins. I do wish there were more options for animations but overall I am very happy with this head.
The Makeover Room is still going on until December 26 and trust me you do not want to miss out on the amazing creations from our designers. Kosmetik is there with a brand new set of eyes and Dulce Secrets will make your lips shine.
This skin is an upcoming release from 7 Deadly Skins and when I have event information I will update this post. Clarity comes in two skin box versions with 7 skin tones for each box. There is an optional shape for sale as well and this skin is based on the LAQ Nyx MoCap head.
This necklace from Vinyl is super cute and a new play on bestie necklaces, again I don’t like asking people to help me, I feel it’s an imposition. I really need to get over that… Anywho, this necklace is available at Pay It Forward and each pack comes with two necklaces in each pack. The necklaces and HUDs are no copy and transferable to give one to your best friend. but the pinecone and tag is such a cute idea. I don’t know how she comes up with these.

I heard that Steel was getting a bit of snow in real life so I started our homes transformation. He was not impressed. Me I love snow in Second Life, the options and everything you can do with decorations are amazing.
Fun additions like this amazing ice skating ring, penguins and accesories from MOoH. Love this little set and it is going to be part of our winter home till the big thaw in January some time.
The damp autumn leaves crunching softly underfoot, the rain falling between the tree cover.
Those days where the sun doesn’t seem to shine, where the rain keeps pouring will come to an end, but in the times you need that umbrella; that cover, do not be afraid to reach out to say hey I need some coverage today.
Remember as a person you are important and special, remember you are loved.
There is a battle within blogger’s minds, or at least this blogger’s mind, and it is not a battle of good and evil. The battle every blogger faces is one of popularity vs. accuracy. Every time I take a picture I have to think of how it is going to perform on Flickr, how it is going to be received by the public yet show the items I am blogging in the best light for the designers in which I am representing. A picture must be pleasing and artistic yet not obscure the quality of design. It is a battle raging and one that seems almost impossible to win.
So much is happening right now in the world of design and events I’m not even sure where to begin, so I guess we’ll start at the beginning. MOoH! is at Level Up and Designer Circle this month. This lovely, ruffled top comes in two HUD varieties, soft and bold, 20 colors each and is only 99L during the event. These awesome shorts are available at Level Up and are also only 99L during the event. The HUD comes with 10 denim and 8 belt options.
The Epiphany opened yesterday and with it came more amazing backdrops from Minimal. With a total of 8 commons and one rare to win, you won’t be sorry. With the quality, you’ve come to expect from Minimal these backdrops are creative and fun.
PocketGacha also opened yesterday and if you haven’t used this amazing new HUD gacha system you are missing out. Go the the PocketGacha Marketplace or to any of the participating designers and grab the free HUD. TP home, to a sandbox, or just about anywhere else. Attach the HUD, find the designer you want to play and pay. That’s it. Simple, straightforward, and best of all NO LAG. Another thing that is unique to PocketGacha is that you have the ability, should you choose, purchase the full packs instead of playing for individual pieces. I’ll be honest, for these shoes from Breathe I didn’t bother playing I just bought them outright. These shoes are the common item and come in 17 colors, there is also a rare black.
This pose set from Foxcity I have blogged previously, however, when a pose fits the scene so perfectly I will feature them again. Bad Kitty is two pose sets each with 7 poses and both come with a silk stool with the poses built in. They are bento poses so for full effect you have to have bento-enabled hands.
The second item I have from Epiphany is this amazing hair from Besom, the gacha machine has a total of 3 hairstyles to play for, there is also earring and bento animated pendulums as well. A total of 24 commons and 1 rare is included in this gacha.
My second item from PocketGacha is this amazing skin from Pumec, with a total of 16 commons, 3 rares, and 1 ultrarare to win you can’t go wrong. Each skin pack includes a modifiable shape and body applier. 18 skins and 1 mesh ear pack with HUD is available to win. This face skin is for Catwa only.
Last but definitely not least is this amazing lipstick from The Little Bat. Available at the all-new Hangar Event. These lipsticks include 8 colors and are made specifically for Lelutka and Omega compatible mesh heads. There are no system lipsticks with this pack.
Today I went a little different from my usual style, mostly because I’m using a drow skin and partly because I want to try and create unique images that stick with you. I’m always trying to improve, to make myself better, not because anyone is making me, but simply because I want to do my very best at all things.
This was so much fun to put together and in all honesty, I was inspired by the skin I’m wearing. 7 Deadly Skins is free to join right now, this is a limited time offer because as soon as the calendar changes to October 1, every group member will receive store credit as the group gift. Plus, group members can participate in the Trick or Treat Hunt, coming soon. This beautiful, drow-toned skin is one of the hunt gifts that you can find. This skin is shown on Lelutka Cate bento mesh head and Maitreya mesh body.
Skin (new): 7 Deadly Skins – Pepper Drow No Brow – Trick or Treat Hunt coming soon
I set this scene up with trees from Little Branch, a leaf covered lawn from Botanical and headstones from Old World Designs. These all went so perfectly with this prop and pose set from Something New. This pose is the exclusive item for I <3 Cart starting October 1 and going through the end of the month. Along with this exclusive item, there is a 2L hunt gift and a 10L item as well as one other exclusive. I think Ally loves Halloween more than I do.
I needed the perfect hair to go with my witchly good looks and I remembered seeing the perfect hair at Collabor88. Exile created this hair for the current round and I have to say I love it. This hair comes with two versions; bento and non-bento. The bento hair moves! There are animations built into the hair that use the hind bones to move and it’s pretty awesome. This hair comes with a hat HUD as well.
I told you I would wear the tattoo again so you could see the chest and arms bit, and I don’t lie. I love this tattoo so much, any tattoo from White Widow definitely has my vote. The detail is just second to none and I love wearing and blogging these tattoos.
I needed the perfect shoes to go with this whole look and I ended up at MODA. Due to real life issues for the creator of Phedora, she and Kimberly have teamed up to bring you some amazing shoes. Available at Shoetopia right now the HUD is extensive and the design flawless.
I’ve been a blogging whirlwind the last few days, I tend to blog when I’m stressed or depressed and some of my best pictures come out of this mood. I won’t go into details but some stuff has happened in the last few days and I’m really looking at myself and my life, for what it is. For the moment you get lots of blogs and photos.
I knew I wanted to do this prop and pose set from Something New, coming up with the location and outfit was another thing. This is a set of 3 poses with a fidget spinner included, well two spinners. It is available at the main store location for 50% off during the month of September.
Next, I had to find an outfit and I remembered that MOoH! has a super cute group gift this month, it comes with the top with a 4 color HUD and the ripped jeans. Made for almost every mesh body and includes fitmesh standard sizes as well. Join the group for 100L and grab this outfit, a 150L gift card, access to the lucky chairs, exclusives and so much more.
I had no intention of going to The Arcade, seriously that place is so bad on my wallet but I wanted these shoes from Breathe and off I went. Breathe has two machines at Arcade, each machine has shoes for Maitreya, Slink and Belleza and 2 rares and 1 common set. I say common set because every color that Breathe makes is available to win individually, the rares are fatpacks and all are absolutely amazing!
I needed a good outdoor location, one that I didn’t HAVE to build myself so I headed over to the photo studios at Image Essentials. Kay has outdone herself and you should really go check out all the photo opportunities available at Image Essentials.
I have been so on top of things lately that I have literally blogged every item available from my two amazing hair designers I had to find a hair and so I headed over to the latest round of Hairology. Fabia is there with an exclusive but there are also two non-exclusive hairs available for purchase as well and I found Anisa. It is so pretty with its loose braid and 3 different texture HUDs available for purchase. I couldn’t not have this hair.
Powder Pack releases two subscription boxes each month, Lelutka on the first of the month and Catwa on the 17th of the month. If you haven’t gone in and pre-ordered your Catwa Powder Pack you still have time. Pre-orders for either box is 1500L, if you wait until it’s released then you have to pay 3000L. Today I chose to wear my Lelutka Cate bento mesh head to share a few more items from the September Powder Pack, I also grabbed a new shape from West End, I love that we can use shapes again and really customize our face with the addition of bento capabilities in Second Life.
Sometimes trying to figure out what path to take in life can be one of the hardest. Do I make that move? Do I choose this path instead of this one? Where will it all lead me in the end? Unanswered questions, fear itself, can keep you from reaching your true potential.
I am so happy to tell you all that Kimberly Kennedy of MODA Designs has given me a chance on her blogger team, I love her shoes and I can’t wait to share these amazing finds with you. Today I chose an older pair of shoes to share with you, mostly because they fit the outfit and secondly because they have my RL sister’s name. It’s not a real common name so I had to grab them! These shoes are available at the inworld location and on the Marketplace and you get a humongous HUD with them. There are a total of 36 colors and the body, sides and sole are all independently changed, there are 4 metal options as well.
This adorable jumpsuit is from none other than MOoH! It is only available in this one color for the ultra low price I’m about to tell you. Join the group inworld and buy this awesome jumpsuit for 50% off, that’s only 85L. The group is 100L to join but you get a 150L gift card every month, group exclusives and so much more.
Foxcity has some of my favorite bento poses on the grid and this set is no exception. Available at Limit8 that runs from the 18th of the current month and goes until the 13th of the next month, so you only have today to get there and grab any goodies that might be left. Foxcity put out a set of sit poses that were not limited and they are awesome! This set comes with 7 poses + mirrors, but you only get all 7 if you buy the fatpack.
This backdrop is another amazing product of the Retro set from Minimal, a total of 8 backdrops, 1 rare and 7 commons are available in this gacha set.
Backdrop: – Retro Backdrop 5
I did it again, I grabbed a men’s made hair and I wore it and OMG, do I love this style. The beanie comes with a HUD to change it to 5 colors in two styles, the hair comes in all the standard color packs and both the beanie and hair have an optional tint HUD you can purchase to make it your own! This hair also includes a style HUD with the toggle option.
This gorgeous skin was originally released for the August round of Designer Showcase, which means you can now go to the main store location and grab this gorgeous skin. This skin is an Omega applier based on the LAQ GAIA head and is available in 8 tones, the HUD applies to the face and body both.
Last but most definitely not least is this amazing necklace from Swallow, it actually comes as a set of two, one lock, one key. This set comes with one for men and one for women however they are non-transferable. The HUD controls the metal and allows for the metals to be changed to 4 colors.
Have you ever dreamed you were flying? Through the sky, through a tunnel leading to a light, anything? The freedom of flight is one of the gifts our feathered friends have that humans have strived toward for centuries, creating all modes of flight from kites to planes. What would it be like to spread your wings and take flight under your own power? We may never know.
This latest blog was inspired by an all new set of poses from Image Essentials, this beautiful set of five poses with mirrors is coming to the September round of TWE12VE starting September 12 at noon and will run until the end of the month. This set will cost you 300L for all 10 poses.
The pose was easy, the rest of the look not so much, I scoured my blogger boxes and Blogotex for just the right outfit and found this amazing ruffle-sleeve dress from MOoH! Available in two color palettes for only 99L each at the latest round of Designer Circle from September 3-15. Each pack comes with a HUD with 13 beautiful colors.
I wasn’t quite sure where I wanted to take this pic, I wanted something unique, dream-like and then I remembered I still had some Minimal backgrounds from the last round of The Epiphany in July. This is one of the 8 common backgrounds available in the gacha machine, which you can still play at the main store location, which I went to double check, I hate giving misinformation. Each pull will only cost you 70L. 8 Commons and 1 Rare are in this gacha set.
I debated on whether to wear shoes or not and then I found these little gems in my Blogotex from RIOT. Created for The Trunk Show that had its debut round on August 19, I was unable to locate an end date, but this event starts fresh on the 19th of every month so don’t miss out. These shoes are so pretty, with individual color change for each part and the ability to turn the bow off if desired. 28 colors in all are included in the fat pack HUD the customization possibilities are endless.
I’ve become very addicted to blogging male hairs on my female avatar, even with the short styles and shaved sides, I still feel pretty and feminine. There are no rules to say that you can only wear certain hairs and Stealthic is killing it with his male hairs lately, I am so honored to be able to bring them to you and show you the opportunities. Haunting came out a while ago for a Men Only Monthly round in May actually, but it is available at the main store. As with all Stealthic Hair, this comes with a style HUD with 4 options although this is before the toggle options, so you have to change your hair to the style you want. It’s still spectacular!
I chose my Lelutka Cate bento mesh head today because I still had so many things to share from the Lelutka Powder Pack this month, this skin, however, is from 7 Deadly Skins and is available in the latest round of Suicide Dollz. This skin comes in 6 tones with an Omega face and body applier based on the LAQ Gaia bento mesh head.
Powder Pack has some of the best skin, makeup, eyes and so much more creators in Second Life all in one convenient pack. 1500L for pre-order or 3000L after release you can get this delivered right to your inventory on release day, no fuss no muss.
Mesange never fails to astonish me with her creativity in eye creation. DragonWish eyes are exclusive to the newest round of We <3 RP, they are discounted 25% and sold only individually, there is no fatpack for this event. All eyes are unisex and come with standard eyes, mesh eyes and an Omega applier HUD for Omega friendly mesh eyes like Lelutka or Catwa. There are 15 colors to collect in all!
With short hair I love including mesh ears that have piercings in them and Swallow has some of my favorite ears, Pax was a gacha at a round of Arcade quite a while ago, but I love these ears and use them as often as I can. This gacha machine can still be found at the main store location and includes 3 different types of ears, each with 3 metal colors. They do come with a HUD for 27 skin colors and size.
