It’s so hooooooooot …

… and I’m outside enjoying it, playing with the kids, going on day trips, visiting friends and family – and just playing RL …

But tonight, my bf wanted to check out Fantasy Football so instead of reading and watching House, we both got online – and I so enjoyed spending some time back in SL again. I wanted to get some sorting done – my inventory is a huge mess again, so cluttered – but of course, I hardly did anything. I unpacked a couple of boxes – and then I went to The Dressing Room, to Fashionable Late, to League, Boho Hobo and a couple of other places and bought more stuff … It’s not like I need anything when I don’t spend more time in SL than I do at the moment – but SL shopping is so hard to resist while SL inventory cleaning is the easiest thing in the world to resist. At least, I’m almost ready to do anything else than sit down and get sorting. So here I am, relaxing on some rather new lounges from Zoe’s Garden (at least I think they’re rather new – I’ve kind of lost track of everything while away), wearing a bikini I bought a while ago but never put on.

What I’m wearing:

  • Bikini: Sabrina6 – Kara Dresler for K-code 
  • Necklace: NoTime Necklace – Line (Available at this week’s Fashionably Late)
  • Glasses: Hipster Peepers (candy gloss) – Miel Nirvana for Miel
  • Hair: Voulez-Vous (ember) – Sebastien Aries for Shag
  • Freckles: Extra Freckles – Launa Fauna for L.Fauna
  • Eyes: ‘Sunrise’ Eyes (Deep blue) – Ikon Innovia for FASHISM
  • Skin: Emma (fair, 06 Slate – copper brows – freckles) – Tuli Asturias for Tuli
  • Shape: Bodyshape 1 (Avie) – Emilia Redgrave for REDGRAVE (modified by me)

Pose prop: Lazy Day Lounge –  Adele Rhiadra for Zoe’s Garden

(Oh – and I didn’t mean to hoot like an owl in the title – just meant to emphasize that it’s really really hot here 😉 )

Revolutionary scot ;-P

There isn’t anything in this outfit I don’t love. From the hair to the top and shirt, the tartan skirt, the stockings, shoes and necklace … It’s just love. The Morning After Tanks from SACRED ROSES are just amazing to use for layering – as I’ve mentioned before, the only thing wrong with them is that they’re only jacket layer. But if you use a viewer which has several tattoo layers, then that’s not a real problem – or at least, you can work around it. The shirt is from Fishy Strawberry and I love (almost) everything from Fishy Strawberry so no wonder I like this. The necklace from Miel is another one in a line of great jewelry coming out from Miel recently. The shoes, oh these amazing wedges, comes with a hud where you can change between 8 colors and 4 types of metal – they are just so great. The hair is new from Illusory available at Hair Fair and I think Illusory is one hair store I need to keep an eye on!

What I’m wearing:

  • Skirt: AsymmetricMiniSkirt (Check-Red) – cocoro Lemon for *COCO*
  • Shirt: Revolutionary Tee (Army Green – Hochiminh) – Fae Eriksen for Fishy Strawberry
  • * Tanktop: Morning After Tank (White) – Kiera Seda for SACRED ROSES
  • Stockings: Deced Stockings (Netted & Black stripe) – Nyte Caligari for Nyte’n’Day
  • Wrist warmer: Sn@atch wrist warmer (black leather) – Ivey Deschanel for Sn@tch
  • Shoes: Country Wedges – Guu Nishi for HOC Industries
  • Necklace: Chum Necklace – Miel Nirvana for Miel (comes with a HUD so you can change it!)
  • Hair: Kimmi (Passion) – ILLUSORY (from Hair Fair 2011 – direct slurl: http://slurl.com/secondlife/Osmium/176/25/21)
  • Makeup: Make-up Layer 08 – aida Ewing for Glam Affair
  • Eyes: ‘Sunrise’ Eyes (Deep blue) – Ikon Innovia for FASHISM
  • Skin: Emma (fair, 06 Slate – copper brows – freckles) – Tuli Asturias for Tuli
  • Shape: Bodyshape 1 (Avie) – Emilia Redgrave for REDGRAVE (modified by me)

Poses: Miamai_Model_Pose_Shock – monica Outlander for Miamai

Two of the same

What I love the most about SL is to create outfits. To buy pieces from various places and put them together and make something new, an outfit that I love to wear and to look at. Since I’m not much of a builder, that’s how I express my creativity in SL. Sometimes, I get so busy with events and running around looking at everything that I just shop and shop and never get around to wearing it. Here are some of my recent acquired items – two different outfits, although with some of the same in both.

What I’m wearing:

  • * Top: Morning After Tank (White) – Kiera Seda for SACRED ROSES
  • * Jacket: Camel Jacket (Russett) – Laurel Carlucci for Alloro
  • Skirt: Suede Mini-Skirt (camel) – Cerberus Noel for  *G Field*
  • Leggings: Tights (Brown) – Tatyana Ultsch for Insanya (Free Group Gift)
  • Boots: Jully Boots (Tan) – Decoy
  • Necklace: Miel Nirvana for Miel (comes with a HUD so you can change it!)
  • Hair: Minx (Cranberry – Roots) – Kavar Cleanslate for Exile
  • Tattoo (belly): AITUI TATTOO – Zodiac – ASF Taurus I – boy of crows (Jesseaitui Petion) for Aitui
  • Eyes: ‘Sunrise’ Eyes (Deep blue) – Ikon Innovia for FASHISM
  • Skin: Emma (fair, 06 Slate – copper brows – freckles) – Tuli Asturias for Tuli
  • Shape: Bodyshape 1 (Avie) – Emilia Redgrave for REDGRAVE (modified by me)

Pose prop: Dark Brick Wall – Scarlet Chandrayaan for Magnifique Poses

I have an admission to make. I’ve failed miserably at my own Use Your Shoes Challenge. I’ve given up on it and although I’ve only bought the Decoy boots so far, I have spend some time picking up demos for some of the shoes I’ve been pining after so if I know myself right, there will be lots of shoe shopping in the near future.

The Morning After Tanks from SACRED ROSES are a rather new item and very sheer – or just call it see-through. I’m a modest girl so I don’t wear them alone but they’re fabulous for layering. There’s only one thing wrong with them – they only come in jacket layer. The skirts from G Field was just love at first sight when I saw them – I knew I had to have them in these two colors. They’re amazing! And what’s up with Exile lately? The most amazing hair is released week after week right now!

What I’m wearing:

  • * Top: Morning After Tank (White) – Kiera Seda for SACRED ROSES
  • * Shirt: Winona (White) – Serina Lacava for SLC (Part of outfit)
  • Skirt: Suede Mini-Skirt (white) – Cerberus Noel for  *G Field*
  • * Tights: White String Tights – Chalice Piers Soulstar for !Graffitiwear
  • * Boots: (romance) Parie Boot (Brown. Rose straps) – Dolce Blackflag for PixelDolls
  • Sunglasses: Cioccolato Sunglasses – The Fashion Garret (Free Group Gift)
  • Hair: Nomi (Cranberry – Roots) – Kavar Cleanslate for Exile
  • Tattoo (belly): AITUI TATTOO – Zodiac – ASF Taurus I – boy of crows (Jesseaitui Petion) for Aitui
  • Eyes: ‘Sunrise’ Eyes (Deep blue) – Ikon Innovia for FASHISM
  • Skin: Emma (fair, 06 Slate – copper brows – freckles) – Tuli Asturias for Tuli
  • Shape: Bodyshape 1 (Avie) – Emilia Redgrave for REDGRAVE (modified by me)

Pose Prop: Dark Brick Wall – Scarlet Chandrayaan for Magnifique Poses

All poses – except the ‘rear view poses’ are from the wall.

(Edit: Ehm – I suddenly remembered that the first shoe buying downfall came at The Dressing Room this week … sighs … pretty shoes with flowers on – what’s a girl to do?)

A little Beige …

So yes, I know. I promised bikini shots – and they will come! But I’ve been kind of busy today but when I’ve been around, this is what I’ve been running around the grid in. I’m wearing clothes from a couple of new-to-me stores. I always love it when I find new stores with great stuff in them.

What I’m wearing:

  • Shorts: Tab Top Linen Shorts (Porcelain) – Drinkinstein Sorbet for The Sea Hole (On sale now for 50L along with lots of other things!)
  • Bra: Alice Black Bra – camilla Yosuke for Insolence
  • Top: Herangsa (cream) – Morphine Janick for  Sweetest Goodbye

  • Fishnets: Fishnet tights (black – rip) – Annyka Bekkers for Blowpop
  • Stockings: leggings socks type boder grad – miraiwave iwish for AWRAM-VIIE
  • Boots: Combat LOL  – Filthy Adored for Bottle Bird
  • Ipod Leg band – Kennedy Gearz for Kennedy’s
  • Tattoo (belly): AITUI TATTOO – Zodiac – ASF Taurus I – boy of crows (Jesseaitui Petion) for Aitui
  • Tattoo (face): AITUI Tattoo Stars 02 Face Tat – female fit – boy of crows (Jesseaitui Petion) for Aitui
  • Hair & Hairbase: Grappa Pieva (Red) – Gia Pawpad for LoQ
  • Lashes: Clean thick 04 – anemysk karu for [ glow ]
  • Eyes: ‘Sunrise’ Eyes (Deep blue) – Ikon Innovia for FASHISM
  • Skin: Emma (fair, 06 Slate – copper brows – freckles) – Tuli Asturias for Tuli
  • Shape: Bodyshape 1 (Avie) – Emilia Redgrave for REDGRAVE (modified by me)

Now I have to gush a bit about this hair. It’s so amazing. Braids and a mohawk, all in one. Pretty, pretty, pretty – and so cool!

And I know, I’m supposed to be doing a shoe challenge but these combat boots are really favorites of mine and they felt right. 🙂

Going hunting

I’ve started on the First Annual Super Hero Hunt. So far I’ve just been going through the stores, picking up the gifts, not opening anything yet.

What I’m wearing:

  • * Dress: Jeans Dress (black) – Serina Lacava for SLC (60L weekends item!! – comes with belt and shoes too – not shown)
  • Belt: Nomi Leather Belt – Dick Wiesel for WoE (you can change the color on everything on this belt!)
  • Stockings: Side-Gartered Stockings (Brown – Black Garter) – Nena Janus for *League*
  • Boots: Kimiko Urban High Heels – Tera Gearz for Dirty Lynx
  • Bracelet: Friendo Bracelet – Miel Nirvana for Miel (comes with a HUD so you can change it!)
  • Makeup: DarkEyes 06 – monica Outlander for Miamai
  • Hair: Military Cap (Loose Chignon – red) – rika Oyen for Argrace
  • Eyes: ‘Sunrise’ Eyes (Deep blue) – Ikon Innovia for FASHISM
  • Skin: Emma (fair, 06 Slate – copper brows – freckles) – Tuli Asturias for Tuli
  • Shape: Bodyshape 1 (Avie) – Emilia Redgrave for REDGRAVE (modified by me)

I really like a lot of the hairs from Argrace, but what’s with the color? This hair I’m wearing, is red – and as a red head I can say, this is not red. It’s not even close. So I wish Argrace would make truly red hair.

In the army now …

In Second Life, you sometimes have to fight various battles. The one fought most often – and also the one that causes the most trouble and irritation – is the fight against lag. Today, I had high hopes for what I wanted to do. I wanted to visit both Fantasy Fair and Pose Fair so I wore my best military outfit to be ready to fight the lag in style. (Yeah, yeah, I know – at Pose Fair they actually give out free skins to wear while shopping to cause less lag – but who wants to be pink all over (except my two year old daughter, of course)?) So I decided on wearing this very cute military outfit from Miel along with some torn stockings (sighs – those roses have some serious torns!), boots made for walking and of course a set of dog tags if I should loose the battle against lag. And a bit of prettiness with flowers in the hair and pink nails – the army I’ve joined, is a bit girly ;-P

What I’m wearing:

  • Dress: Miel Tary Skirt (Camo) – Miel Nirvana for Miel
  • Stockings: Kimiko Torn Stockings – Tera Gearz for Dirty Lynx
  • Shoes: Docs (8 hole F Black – old polish – old laces – abused) – by Gospel Voom for Gos
  • Jewelry: Dogtags – Tonk Tomcat for Tonktastic
  • Nails: Nails No. 001 (pink) – je suis naive
  • Hair: Yves Hair (FireTop) – Lelutka
  • Eyes: ‘Sunrise’ Eyes (Deep blue) – Fashism (bought at Fashion for Life. Fashism hasn’t got a store in-world yet.)
  • Skin: Emma (fair, 06 Slate – copper brows – freckles (light, sunkissed)) – Tuli Asturias for Tuli
  • Shape: Emma – Tuli Asturias for Tuli (modified by me)

I’m afraid I must admit that I lost today. I gave up on Fantasy Fair – too slow, too much lag – and Pose Fair? The lag won. Suddenly my L$ balance was -1 … and that wasn’t what I entered the Fair with and it was not because of excessive shopping. I got one pose, got to the second vendor, tried to buy – and all money gone … sighs … so will have to go back…
