Tuli releases Elyse at Skin Fair 2013

Snapshot_016

I was very happy to see Tuli come back with new skins and even happier to see a new release at skin fair. Elyse comes in three tones and I am showing her in my favorite, which is Pearl. It also comes with ten different eye make ups which I have shown in the collage photo and several different lipsticks, I have worn some of my favorites and they are so much fun to play around with.

Elyse is a gorgeous skin with some nice body details and a very sweet face to match.

My hair is from Truth and my eyes are from Ikon.

Blame it on Berry…

sylvia

For starting this Seven SL Facts Meme. I’m gonna give it a go but first I wanted to say that I’m loving this jewelry set by Caelan Hancroft called Sakura that will debut at the Liaison Collaborative tomorrow along with some other really gorgeous items, that you can see if you follow that link and look at the growing flickr pool.

Ok, facts.

1. Sylvia is my third try at Second Life. It’s true. I first tried Second Life in 2005 under “Anais Vox” but the account was deleted because back then you had to pay ten dollars a month and I only signed up for a quick trial. I never tried to get it back. The second time was an avatar born just two days before Sylvia but I didn’t like her name so Sylvia became my main.

2. I’ve been partnered a few to many times in SL, most of it was friendship and fun though. It’s important not to take yourself too seriously here. I met a few ladies who I would consider to be some of my best real life friends now, who knew?

Yeah I’m looking at you Marls, Uglee, Kate and Cae. Sometimes I might not have seen eye to eye with you, but you four have saved me all in different ways and I love you.

3. My inventory is totally unorganized and its just below 100k. I’m super sentimental and keep a lot of things. If SL had a hoarders show I’d probably be on it.

4. I believe in SL families. Not many people know this but I have a child avatar that I’ve played for 3 years and she has a Mom and Dad. It’s funny how Second Life brings people together and gives you a chance sometimes to have what you can’t really have in RL. My SL Mom and Dad, though sparse the last year or so still mean a lot to me. My SL mom is listed in my RL Facebook profile as my RL mom and My SL Dad means a lot to me because I never had one. My childhood was less than stellar without going into it and SL Family gave a piece of that back to me.

5. Even though I want to make more friends here, I’m really shy even in a virtual world. Sometimes, before I even open my mouth – I automatically assume that people are not going to like me and I wish I could just get over that. It’s hard for me to start conversations, but I do enjoy them.

6. I love my Job at Gos Boutique and Gos in general. I’ve only been there a little over a month and I like helping people out when I can as it forces me to be social. I like the sense of purpose it gives me and I love the shoes, and Gos is pretty nice to work for too.

7. I like Plurk. I know that we all have our ups and downs but in generally plurk is how I learn about things that are going on in SL and connect with people. It has greatly enhanced my SL and has made friends for me and has helped me get to know people and break out of my shell a little by talking to people I might not have spoken to before.

Thank you for the Meme, Berry <3

Izzies @ the Skin Fair

izzies

As you know if you’ve been reading the feeds, The skin fair is coming back and there are many exciting things that are a buzz right now. I had the good fortune of trying out this skin that will be newly released from Izzie’s at the Skin fair. I really love Izzie’s skins in general but I have a special place in my heart for the ginger edition of this skin. I just loveeeee the freckles but below I have took a snap shot of all of the tones. Each tone from light to darkest is lovely to me.

I also did a mash up of the make up options that each tone comes with and I just find them to all be really cute and you could try so many different combinations. I love a skin with endless possibilities.

My New Romance at Collabor88

To describe a blossoming new romance is divine, to see it in living color for this month’s Collabor88 is like poetry in motion!

Sugar Heartsdale came up with this design concept “New Romance for Collabor88 for the month of March as she was the winner of the contest, and what a lovely concept it is! Oh, and let me mention that there is a brand new Collabor88 build! I really love this brand new build too, it’s open and easier for me to find things.

I love to mix as many Collabo88 pieces as I can into my photos so let me tell you who made what.

The Pergola is from Floorplan while the decorations such as the tables, pizza chairs and bunting are from Scarlet Apple.

My poses in the post are from Diesel Works. My hair is from Tableau Viviant while my skin and head piece come from Glam Affair. I am wearing a lace top from Nylon Outfitters, along with the silver mesh nails that I did not get a good picture of, but they are very pretty. The adorable camera necklace is from Yummy. My skirt is from Boom and the shoes are from Just Designs.. and all of that you can get at this Months Collabor88 along with many other beautiful things!

Angelina

It was a lovely afternoon in Second Life, as Gospel Voom of Gos Boutique release these beautiful brand new shoes. I love the Angelina’s because not only do they have a sexy look to them and new options galore such as being able to change the bottom of your shoe and the metals that you are wearing, these shoes are expertly crafted and realistic (but not too realistic).. you can almost smell the leather.

There were many happy ladies leaving Gos Boutique with shoes this afternoon.

I am posing on the Pouffe that is available for purchase at Gos Boutique which was a collaboration between Gos and Ooo Studios, it has many sexy poses in it and this dress from Cracked Mirror that is available at Fameshed went perfectly with my new Angelina shoes. I am also wearing the Canto hair from Lelutka and the Glam Affair – Amberly skin.

I had the pleasure of checking out a brand new home from .Happy Homes. The Kendal Cottage is a very cute home for a blossoming family, there are three bedrooms, a bathroom, dining room, kitchen, a secret room, closet space, all windows open and close, the ceiling fans work and the lights work as well. The house is also copy/mod.

It’s very adorable, the floor plan is interesting and the textures are very well thought out. The build is only 161 prims and does contain mesh. If you would like to see the home in world, there is a brand new in world location here: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Perfect%20Isle/167/45/2000

Bejeweled

bejeweled2

So a few days ago, as I’m sure most of you know.. on March first several events took off around the grid.. and yeah my Linden balance is hit! But, I have some pretty things to show for it!

First, Fameshed is back with a new round and my lovely Caelan Hancroft of Cae was in it this month and she made this gorgeous necklace and jewelry set called Bejeweled. The set is full mesh and the gems are to die for. She did such a wonderful job on this set that you must run right out and get it! No really, stop reading this already and get to Fameshed! Below: I did a closer crop of the necklace.

bejeweledclose

I’m only showing it with the Emerald gems and gold metal but it changes to three different metals and several different gemstones. It’s a steal, its like getting a fat pack of necklaces for really cheap!

I also have been spending all of my time pretty much at the Arcade or at least trying to get in and this beautiful skin by Pink Fuel in “Ghost” was only 100L and I think I got it on my third try or so, and it was the one I wanted. The hair is from Truth and its the “Video Games” hair also for 100L in Light Ginger Rare. Super excited about the Arcade and Arcade items, there will be more posts about that. Hope you are having a wonderful weekend <3
