Better Than My Favorite Sweater

Better Than My Favorite Sweater

Blue jeans, white shirt
Walked into the room you know you made my eyes burn
It was like, James Dean, for sure
You’re so fresh to death and sick as ca-cancer
You were sorta punk rock, I grew up on hip hop
But you fit me better than my favourite sweater, and I know
That love is mean, and love hurts
But I still remember that day we met in December, oh baby!

-Blue Jeans Lana Del Rey

One of my favorite shops is called Blueberry. A friend of mine introduced me to her clothing (thank you Sarah!) after I’d bought my Maitreya Lara body and I am HOOKED! She recently had a 50% sale on two of her newer items; leather pants and a cute dress. I had already purchased a pair of the leather pants in purple (because that’s my favorite color lol) but with a 50% sale…How can a girl resist? This time I got them in Midnight. Rene is a sexy cute set of leather pants that is super flattering for any shape. My butt has never looked better. Lol I love that Blueberry includes fitted versions for the major mesh body types like Maitreya, all Belleza bodies, and Slink. These pants also include a tucked in version (all sizes and fitted meshes as well) for wearing with boots. And if that wasn’t enough, there’s a HUD to change the color of the metal buttons. All of this for a normal price of 199L per color. That’s 20 different sizes and a HUD. I’d say that is a steal. The top I’m wearing is the current group gift at Bluberry and also comes with all sizes and fitted meshes along with a HUD with several color options. Both the pants and top are so cute and well made, which is something that comes as no surprise. Every piece Blueberry does is made with love and care.

The jacket I’m wearing is from the Birdy Collective from Foxes. It is currently at Collabor88 but not for much longer. There are four plain colors and four jackets with a print on the back which are designed to go with a dress that is also available in several colors at Collabor88. Included are all standard sizes and fitted mesh for Belleza, Maitreya, and Slink. An optional hood comes with the jacket in various sizes and fitted mesh. I love the fit of this jacket so much I probably won’t be taking it off any time soon. Get yours at Collabor88 while you can and the many other lovely goodies.

In My Bones

I’m breaking in, shaping up, then checking out on the prison bus
This is it, the apocalypse
Whoa
I’m waking up, I feel it in my bones
Enough to make my system blow
Welcome to the new age, to the new age
Welcome to the new age, to the new age

Every month, the designers at We ❤ RP astound me with their creativity and craftsmanship. I have a few favorite designers but this fair/market is a wonderful assembly of talented creators that I love to discover. Several pieces from this outfit are from this round of We ❤ RP. Most are current or past We ❤ RP contributors. It’s such an amazing gathering of talent that there just is not enough room in one blog to praise them all; so I will just have to highlight a few. 🙂

I will confess that the first item I bought from this month’s fair was…ehem… the owl/cat/gryphon you see sitting on my shoulder. In fact, I bought two color versions because they are simply too adorable to pass up and I may have to buy another one. These cute blended creatures are animated and come with both a wearable shoulder pet AND a rezzable version. Fair warning, you will not be able to quit cooing over their animations.

My shirt/romper/thing (what would you call it? o.o) is a lovely piece by Azuchi. It comes with several sizes including fitted for some mesh bodies e.g. Maitreya and Belleza. The textures on this piece are exquisite and realistic; the material looks just like leather. I am looking forward to seeing what else I can find from them. Only issue I had was some of my thigh peek through when I move from the fabric not lining up with my alpha slices, but nothing too revealing or noticeable. I’m sure with a small shape mod it would be fixed on my end.

Wings have always been fun for me to play with because one of my roleplay characters is half Fae. Any wings I find that are unique become a must have and Material Squirrel designed a set that appeals to my darker side. A light colored set is also available. The wings are mesh, come with a color change hud, and a hud that allows the user to change size, movement on/off, movement speed, and to hide them. I love that I can make them hide upon landing and the durability. They are not flexy wings. They are not flimsy wings. These wings exude power and strength only achieved through hard work and lots of flying. Well done Material Squirrel.

Lastly, I would like to mention the boots which are a past We ❤ RP item made by Moon Elixir. You see only the tops of them in the image, but trust me (or check my flickr image here) these boots are kick ass. Thigh high, laced up, and with the option of tassels, these boots are rock solid and perfect for any adventure one may embark on. As always with Moon Elixir, these boots come with a Hud with lots of color and metal options for the smaller pieces. With lots of color choices, you’re sure to find a pair you’ll love.

One more week of this month’s We ❤ RP. Grab the deals while you can.

Wake Me Up…When September Ends…

Fi's Hunts - Autumn Love Hunt - POSTER IMAGE

Mid-October, and I’m already wishing time would slow down so I can enjoy my favorite season longer. Which is why Green Day is on my iPod replay. Nothing suits nostalgia and reflection quite like their song “Wake Me Up When September Ends.” If you’re looking for something to do this season, I’m bringing you more peeks into the hunt gifts laid out for the Autumn Love Hunt today. I just can’t help getting excited about these cute gifts! From flirty dresses and sexy heels to a relaxing lounge with a lakeside view. This hunt has it all.

First, a quick shoutout to antonialyons for nominating my blog for a Liebster Award. Thank you so much! 🙂 I didn’t even  know what it was at first but I am very grateful for the bloggy love! Check out her blog here. Now on to the gifts!

If you’re like me, you like a nice view outside your window when you’re lounging about the house. SANNAs Mainshop created a beautiful full perm texture and script plus demo builds of a beautiful animated lake view. To enjoy the view? I relaxed on a chaise lounge by HJM Designs. Perfect for enjoying a book and cup of coffee, this chaise is also good for cozy cuddles. Need more lounge room? Try the daybed by Twilight Designs. It’s comfy and the couch even pulls out into a bed. If you’re looking to sit outside to enjoy the crisp autumn air, An Lema designed a quaint porch set that comes with a nice side table and mirror encircled with a wreathe to add a soft touch to any home.

I could not decide on what outfit I liked most for this post. Each outfit is fun in its own way. The first dress is a flirty little number by GET FROCKED and I paired it with the Zeva Red heels by Lindy Mainshop. I also painted my nails with [Rad Designz] Fall nails for Slink and Belleza. I love the color options of these nails and the detail is stunning. The second dress I tried on is by Mishmash Fusion and I will admit I am a purple addict. This dress is darling and comes with matching flats that make me want to skip through leaves!

Tube top, short skirt, and high heel boots, **Cheeky Parrot Boutique** has a cute outfit that is perfect for lunch with the girls while bustling about town. The last piece I wore is a plaid shirt by WICKED. It fits so nicely and looks great with jeans. Simple, yet sophisticated, this top gives a nice mood boost, especially if you’re exploring those creepy haunted houses this time of year. Yikes! But not to worry, =EC Designs= has two gachas for this hunt. One of these gachas gives you a cute batfriend to rez that follows you about. I’m a bit of a scaredy cat so I decided to get a few more batfriends to take with me!

Fi's Hunts - Autumn Love Hunt - POSTER IMAGE

Beginning October 8th, a hunt hosted by Fi’s Hunts, the Autumn Love Hunt, started and I am in love with it for several reasons. For one thing, who wouldn’t love a hunt with their name in the title? Autumn also happens to be my favorite season because of all the pretty colors, Halloween, and it’s the perfect time for hot cider, cozy sweaters, and pumpkin flavored everything. So a hunt that revolves around this wonderful time makes me a very happy kitty. I’ve been given a sneak peek at some of the goodies you can expect to find on the hunt trail as you venture the grid. There’s 38 shops participating and in the links section below will be a link to their blog and the start point.The hunt runs from October 8th-31st.  Now let’s see what are some of the gifts available on this free hunt!

Starting with furniture, I wanted to share the adorable outdoor living set created by =EC Designs=. it comes loaded in a rez box for easy setup and the fireplace is perfect for taking the bite out of a chilly autumn night while cuddling with a special someone. The Floral Bean bag by Rupsy Roo  is great for creating a chill hang out spot in small house corners. Shabby Tabby’s table has a quaint harvest feel: the straw is woven with lights under a glass top for a soft glow. The last furniture piece for this post is the cute pumpkinmen tip jar. I thought this tip jar was a neat twist on the snowman idea. It would make a great tip jar for a Halloween party or just as a decoration.

This hunt has some really cute clothes as well. I included pictures of the first outfit I tried on. By Emerald Couture, this cute top/pant/boot set comes in system layers and several of the main mesh body appliers (Maitreya, Belleza, Omega, etc). Boots are not rigged for mesh feet (that I’m aware of) but were a perfect fit with my Maitreya body. The Butterfly and Heart jewelry set by Redrose Jewellry has a unique effect. It actually looks like a butterfly is fluttering to rest on the necklace and earrings. I will be posting more hunt gift pictures when I can. Until then…

Happy hunting!

Call Me…

This post is inspired by the tragedy of the shooting at Umpqua Community College on October 1st and the heroics of those who strove to stop it. I also drew inspiration from the Norse legends that those who die honorably are brought to Asgard and Valhalla in the arms of a Valkyrie. I feel that all those killed in this tragic manner ought to be remembered for the good they did and hoped for in this world rather than the terrible way their lives ended. In these pictures I take on the form of a Valkyrie swooping down to Earth for the souls of the honorably fallen. Despite our differences, we are all human. This event brought much sadness yet again into the world. My thoughts go out to the UCC community.
