Beautiful beginnings

2017 is just around the corner (or already here, for many of you)!   My, how time flies!  2016 has definitely been an eventful year, in more ways than one.   Of course, with the end of one year, comes the promise of a better year.   One of my favorite ways to welcome a new day..and even a new year ..  is to take some quiet time to reflect on my life, and think of ways to make it better.  Sure, it’s fun to go out on New Year’s Eve and party, to bring in a new journey around the sun, but it’s also good to have time for yourself, and enjoy what is already here.  I like to do this at the Duet – Photography sim, which provides wonderful backgrounds that are calm & serene.

In this post, I am wearing the Mai Dress, from ~*Moolala*~, which is available in t he Lucky Chairs at the store.    It’s a beautiful short dress, with a very detailed Asian style print.  The front has a sexy plunge to show off your cleavage, but still leave enough to the imagination.   A headpiece is included, and this dress comes in 4 mesh sizes ( Basic, Maitreya, Slink, and TMP), and also has an alpha to help with the fit.   I am wearing the one for Maitreya, and had to adjust my alpha layers just a tad, but this is due to my shape (the dress fits perfectly, and you may not need to adjust anything).

Festive Fun

Happy Holidays! I hope everyone is having a delightful December, and that you are enjoying the festivities.   One of my favorite things to do in Second Life around this time of year is to explore the holiday themed sims.   You can enjoy “the great outdoors”, while you are indoors, and the visuals can be breathtaking.  Of course, while it’s nice to visit a sim that’s active with parties and hunts, it’s also nice to look around a sim that offers quiet moments as well.

In this blog, I am wearing the Elsa Outfit by ~*Moolala*~, made for the Evil Bunny Productions’ “Twe12ve” Event.  This runs from December 12 -31, and the theme is “Festive”.   It includes a very comfortable off-shoulder sweater, that includes 10 textures, and fits the Slink and Maitreya bodies, as also has 5 FitMesh sizes.   The jeans and boots come attached –  there are 5 textures for the jeans, and one for the boots.  This attachment fits all of the Slink, Maitreya, and Belleza mesh bodies.    Along with all of these wonderful items, you also get earrings, bracelet, a ring, and Mani/Pedi HUDs!  So much is included, so I have attached a picture of the ad.   I am also including a screenshot of my Maitreya-Lara alpha hud for the settings I used for the outfit.  Please note that I took off the mesh feet, in order for the boots to have the perfect fit for me.  You may not need to do so.

I took these photos at the Boo’s Designs sim.  It’s a great location for a few holiday pictures, either by yourself , with friends, or that special person you love to snuggle with.   🙂

JOYful times with friends

‘Tis the season to enjoy the beautiful changes in the weather, as we prepare to go from Autumn to Winter.    The air is crisp, the ground is starting to get covered in snow, and the holiday decor can put a smile on the gloomiest of faces.   This is the time to gather with friends , from all walks of life —   and in Second Life, this means those of different species!    Today, I was honored with a tour of the ~*Water Horse*~ Mall, by my friend, Stormy Hooves.

In this blog, I am wearing the “Nell Overalls” that are now available at ~*Moolala*~.   They come in five mesh sizes, that can also fit Maitreya- Lara,  Belleza-Freya, and Slink-Physique.  I am wearing the Lara body, and with just a few adjustments on my alpha hud, this fit perfectly (screen shot included in the post)!   There are four jeans textures, and 8 textures for the attached shirt, in the fat pack, so you get plenty of great combinations to work with!  It was very comfortable to wear on the farm.  🙂

Making Memories

The Winter holidays are just around the corner, and it’s the perfect time to honor family and friends.  It’s time to make memories, and share time honored traditions.  The “Anastacia” outfit from *~Moolala~* is the perfect outfit to wear at gatherings with your loved ones.   This one is an exclusive for   Twe12ve, with Evil Bunny Productions.  You get the outfit (it fits Belleza, Slink, and Maitreya bodies, along with Fit Mesh for classic avatars), a hair bow, eye glasses,  and shoes.  The shirt and bow come with a HUD that features 10 beautiful, rich tones for the season.    I have included screenshots of the alpha settings that I used for the Venus mesh body, by Belleza.   The shoes fit the High feet setting for that mesh body as well.

Frightful fun

The best part of Second Life, to me personally, around this time of year is the vast assortment of haunted house sims.  Some are very mild, offering a subtle scare that is more amusing than frightful.  Others go out of their way to make sure the creep factor stays with you, even after you teleport away –  Angels Haunted House is no exception.   It has two buildings with an array of spooky tricks, and if you are brave enough to venture around, you can also click on random pieces of parchment paper on the floor for a lot of treats (prizes).    It is advised that child avatars who visit are accompanied by an adult avatar, in case the chills prove to be a bit too much.

In this post, I am wearing the Blair Hooded Mini Dress, made by *~Moolala~*.  There are 5 Classic Fit sizes to choose from (XXS, XS, S, M, L), one Fitted Mesh, Slink Physique & Hourglass, and Maitreya-Lara (which is the one I am wearing).  You can also choose from a variety of colors, or purchase the fat pack.  It is available at STUFF STYLE , from  October 6th – October 31st.

BOO to you !

As you know, Halloween is one of my favorite holidays …and I am very happy that one of my all-time favorite sims in Second Life has re-opened!  The 2016 Halloween Town is back on the grid, and it’s just as much fun as it has been over the past years.    You have plenty of spooky shops to explore, lots of ghoulish Gacha machines to play, and of course, the Haunted House !    Occasionally, you get a photo op with your favorite horror movie characters, thanks to the Townies group, who always love to dress up.

In this post, I am wearing the Boo Fucking Hoo Set, made by *~Moolala~*.    It is designed perfectly for exploring the Halloween sims in-world, or for just relaxing on your favorite Autumn themed sims.  The dark grey Henley style top has an adorable ghost on it, waiting to greet you with a snarky Halloween hello.   The shirt comes in two Fitmesh sizes, as well as five regular mesh sizes  (XXS, XS, S, M, and L … I am wearing the Medium).  The black jeans are on the classic Pants layer, so you do not need to own a mesh body to wear them, although it does come with applier set if you do own one.  The Ugg boots are made for classic avatar feet, but can be adjusted with a HUD that’s included.    An extra bonus is the Sarcastic Ghost sucker, shown in the fourth picture.

Driving your fears away

Tomorrow is the first day of October, and that means that one of my favorite holidays is right around the corner:  Halloween!   What I love best about it is you can be who you want, and enjoy the things that would normally cause you fright (fears, horror movies, etc).   Of course, you can’t have Halloween without something that has a pumpkin, which is why I took my Mad Pumpkin Bike for a spin ..and it was nice to have some guardian spirits from another world watch over me.  😉

In this post, I am wearing the Rizzo Suit, in Gray Lace, by *~Moolala~* .  It has a sexy and fearless look to it, which works well when you are visiting motorcycles sims, or even a haunted house!   The front is very low cut, so as you race along the roads, you can stay cool and comfortable..as well as give others a look as you zip by.  😉   It’s a mesh outfit, that comes in 5 sizes (XS, S, M, L, and XL), with an alpha layer, and foot base.    I wore my Lara mesh body, and this still had a great fit, with just a few clicks on my HUD’s Alpha menu (screenshot is below).    It is available at the store, as a Third Life Group Gift.

The grey areas show the parts of the Lara mesh body, by Maitreya, that need to be invisible , in order for this item to fit.  I wore the {M} size.
