.lame furniture (but not really) & gacha madness!

Yesterday I was talking to an old friend who has started up his furniture business back up in SL. It’s really worth a look because this couch that I’m featuring is only 8 prims and 199L and it’s so freaking cute. The tea couch from .lame furniture can be found in world or here on the market place. It’s a fun and brightly colored couch that goes well with the madness of my gacha items that I’m about to show you. The table showcasing the lovely vintage head form Nylon Outfitters can also be found at .lame.

I also want to mention that the skybox that I am using for this post can be found at this month’s Collabor88 from floorplan.



Most of the furniture used such as the futon, the chairs table and birds painting, couch and tables are from .lame furniture. Most stuff is mesh and low prim, and even the sculpt stuff is low prim. All the fun accessories and stuff are from the Arcade Gacha and I’ve tried to list all the ones that I’ve used in the tags but if you have a particular question about something feel free to IM me in world!

Some of my favorite blogs and bloggers..

Yesterday, Gogo asked What are your top 10 favorite SL blogs? Honestly I read a lot of blogs but of course we all have our own personal preferences.

This is my list in no particular order and I’ll give a reason for each:

Marleen Vaughan of Coffeesmoke: I love this girl, she is the reason that I even started blogging in SL. She invited me to be a part of Coffeesmoke and I was for almost two years before branching off to my own blog. Her posts are funny, real and non contrived. Her writing is top notch and I’ve laughed out loud many times. Also she started another blog called the Concerned Bloggers Association which is worth a look. She also has a shop called Vaughan’s House of Curiosities which is visionary, quirky and fun.

Caelan Hancroft of Simply Stylish Cae inspires me with her adorable face, curvy body and and well thought out photography. Her outfit combinations are amazing.

Grazia Horwitz of GraziaSL.Com I’ve followed this blog for a long time. Grazia to me is an icon in the SL Fashion community. She makes brilliant and sometimes daring style choices but she is flawless. Everything she picks goes perfectly together.

Strawberry Singh of StrawberrySingh.com Berry is awesome sauce. Just look at her blog and you can see why. She is a goddess, untouchable seemingly at first but actually refreshingly down to earth with a very sweet personality. I love her tutorials and windlights.

Luna Jubilee of Luna Jubilee.com This is another blog that I’ve followed for a long time. She has the amazing windlights for download too, blogger boot camp tutorials, and she started the very successful 52 weeks of color blogger challenge. Luna is a sweet, funny and wonderful person the times I’ve been lucky enough to talk with her or hang out in world and her blog is a reflection of that.

Gogolita of Juicybomb.com I love Gogo’s blog because she writes with integrity and she styles herself in some of the most adorable finds from around SL that I probably would not have been aware of without her. I appreciate her blog because she is honest, colorful and juicy like a fresh peach!

It’s only fashion is a collaboration blog of some of the best bloggers in Second life. My favorite being the ever wise and stylish Cajsa Lilliehook mixed with the fun and down to earth mother earth goddessness of Gidge Uriza.. there are many great bloggers on the It’s only fashion blog but I am partial to the both of them and over all it makes for a diverse blog with many tutorials and solid fashion advice.

Annan Adored of Interstyle Fashion. I don’t know her at all aside from finding her on flickr one day but she could be my baby’s momma.. maybe? Seriously her images are gorgeous and I love the way she puts together a photo. Her windlight settings available for download are great too.

Free*Style: I could not make a list like this without including probably the first second life blog that I’ve ever read. Free*Style is my favorite “freebie” blog and mostly like the first that I can remember reading. This blog helped me through my much more noobish days and this blog to me is top quality and worth a read for anyone from the basic new SL user to even the most advanced as there is always something new to learn.


Vaki Zenovka
of Insert Funny name here: She maybe blogs once or twice a month now but when she does its well worth it. Her images are stunning, evocative and eloquent. Her writing to go along with her images is equally as amazing. A very impressive blog, indeed.

Other blogs that I love: Not Quite Pink by Magenta Devinna whom I simply adore, Bouncer Criss of Pixel Phasion 4 Men has a wonderful Mens blog, Lysie Aristocrat of Barbie Does Sl and Lauren Minuet of Flirting with Fashion are all blogs that I love to read as well.

Now this list has variations here and there but don’t get me wrong I appreciate all of the awesome bloggers in SL but these are ones that I’ve chosen because I’ve either followed them for a long time or because I feel there are currently my favorites. So who are yours?

Collabor88 is Timeless

I’ve only just begun to skim the surface of the amazing offerings this Collabor88, who has a new location and it’s own sim!

I have to say this is one of my favorite Collabor88′s to date. Perhaps its the fall colors that I’m seeing but how could I not love these mesh shorts from Ingenue with the cute little bow on the side or this fantastic jacket from House of Fox. For this post my poses are from Marukin‘s Classic offering pose pack for this round of Collabor88.

I am also wearing (not available at Collabor88) new hair from Truth that so far everyone I know loves. It’s adorable. My tights, shirt and boots are from Mon Tissu and my jewelry in this post (the rings and earrings) are from Mandala.

Autumn Bridge

I really feel the sense of Autumn in the air lately. I think every September brings a certain nostalgia and I have to smile. I think fall is a magical time and I love fall too in Second Life.

This new dress from ColdLogic is just the perfect thing along with their other newly released items to get you in the SL Fall spirit. The new collection is lovely and so far this is my favorite piece. I am also wearing semi new hair from Truth called Liberty, it is very cute and I love the side pony tail.

I have been wearing one of two skins almost exclusively lately. This skin is the Lilith Skin from Glam Affair. It is very much a friend to the red heads and gingers of SL with these very cute brow options. My pose is from Del May, my tights are from Mon Tissu and my boots are from Maitreya. My necklace is from Maxi Gossamer from Augusts Collabor88.

Mon Tissu Blogger Search!

This contest is special to me because ever since Mon Tissu’s opening I have sought to collect different pieces of clothing as they have been released.

I think that I may have one of each thing in my inventory that Mon Tissu has ever made in at least one color. I’ve been an avid fan always waiting for the next new breathtaking release. Maybe it sounds a bit extreme but I don’t think that I could have do without the Mon Tissu clothing pieces in my Second Life inventory.

To me, Mon Tissu well expresses quality in Second Life as each pieces seems to be expertly crafted for even the most discerning buyer. I am a most enthusiastic Mon Tissu fan girl, and I’m not ashamed to admit it!

What I am wearing:

Bellaza – Shyla (Pale) Skin #1 w/Blonde Brows
Elikatira – Spark
!bang Poses

Leverocci Round Nails – Pink Plain
Sigma Jewels Anya Bangles and Ring set
Mon Tissu Oui Necklace
Mon Tissu Montesegur Pumps – Beige

Happy Birthday, Mister Hawks!

A week ago or so, Kaelyn Alecto of the blog SweetSexyCrazy who also happens to be the wife/sl partner of Truth Hawks invited me to have my photo taken and say a happy birthday wish for Truth Hawks and I thought this was a really sweet idea.. and not only did she invite me she invited several other people which you can see here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/sweetsexycrazy/sets/72157631380649274/

This is a special flickr gallery for Truth, and it is very heart warming to look at. The number of photos that she took and the number of people involved in this special Birthday project is just amazing.

Kaelan, you did a great job and Truth – I hope that you have the happiest birthday ever. Thank you for making so many wonderful hairs that continue to wow me and being a cool guy! Happy Birthday!

For my look today.. I am wearing one of Truth’s newest hairs called Tristana. A new dress from Rebel Hope that is at Famseshed. New skin from Glam Affair called Lilith. Jewelry from Sigma. Shoes from Celoe and my poses are from !Bang. The Mesh screen in the background is from Apple Fall and it is available at Fameshed.

Glam Affair – Lilith is here!

This has been a great week for new skin releases. I was delighted to find that Glam Affair had released a brand new skin on Friday.

Lilith is lovely it has the new body like Cassiopea but a face that could pass for the sister of one of my most favorite Glam Affair skins – Leah. I love the eye brows and make up options on this one. This is a skin that I can see myself wearing a lot as I wore Leah a lot.

The make ups range from slightly more daring to every day wear. My favorite feature of this skin is the lips. You can pick up or demo your copy of this beautiful new skin at Glam Affair. I am also wearing hair from Dela for this post.
