Gonna Let it Burn

Gonna Let it Burn

When the light started out they don’t know what they heard
Strike the match, play it loud, giving love to the world
We’ll be raising our hands, shining up to the sky
‘Cause we got the fire, fire, fire
Yeah we got the fire, fire, fire

And we gonna let it burn, burn, burn, burn
We gonna let it burn, burn, burn, burn
Gonna let it burn, burn, burn, burn
We gonna let it burn, burn, burn, burn

The Warm Socks Hunt 2 & Gacha Event hosted by Fi’s Hunts runs from November 5-30 and it looks like the designers came up with some cozy warm goodies for the chilly weather we’re having. While I am not fond of the cold, it’s a great excuse to wear fun boots and curl up by the fire. Here’s a glimpse at what you can find in the event. Links and hunt details are at the bottom of this post.

This hunt has lots of cozy knits and Mishmash Fusion did a wonderful job with the texturing of the gift sweater dress and the gacha sweater dresses. The gift at Mishmash Fusion is a cute grey sweater dress with grey fur lined uggs and leggings (omega applier included) with detailing on the side. Myst’s gacha has several fun chevron sweater dresses that you can wear with the leggings and boots from the hunt gift. My personal favorite is the Bold Purple RARE. ❤

With the cold coming upon us, you might be looking for something to warm your house. Look no further! Well, after you find the hunt gift anyway… {Sickly SWEET} has a nice low prim fireplace to snuggle up in front of with warm crackling flames amidst freshly cut logs. I’ve adorned its mantle with other items from the event.

On the wall is a cute picture from Chiana Oh. If you have kids or are just looking to decorate for winter, this framed image would make a great focal point in any home. If you’re going out in the cold weather, try one of the Winter Warmers from Chiana Oh’s gacha machine. It comes in both a rezzable and wearable version in an assortment of styles. Dr. Who fans will be happy to spot a Doctor related one. (See it behind the monkey?) The sock monkey is one of many monkeys in a gacha from *Shabby Tabby* and are a great use of old worn out socks from winters past. I especially love *Shabby Tabby*’s gift Lumanaries; they are adorable candle holders that can be turned on and off and create a warm atmosphere. Put these little beauties anywhere you need a spot of light.

That is all for now. Stay tuned for another post on the Warm Socks Hunt soon!

In My Bones

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!

I Feel Pr!tty…

I wanted to post something earlier but I got busy packing for a trip so I’m writing on the go. I just had to share a great find on hair. Thank the stars for hotel wifi and Flickr uploads!

One of my favorite Secondlife shopping events is We ❤ RP. It’s an incredible almost month long event that is basically a fantasy/medievalish market. Everything is top notch quality design and geared toward those who roleplay. Although I will admit I buy the pretty Arcadia gowns  just to feel like a princess, I always find several other items I can’t pass up. From gowns to armor, hair and skin, furniture and poses; this fair has it all. Even Jian’s goats.

So, hair… I’ve found the cuuuuutest hair at We ❤ RP made by Pr!tty. Navi is a gorgeous long hair draped over one shoulder with a  woven firefly branch headpiece which adds the perfect touch of whimsy. (Bonus: The headpiece comes in two styles which can be worn with other hair!) At 25% off while at the fair, this hair is a steal and a must-have. I also have to gush over the shoes I found by Pure Poison. I’m a mom in SL and currently carrying baby #4 (Yes, I enjoy role playing being pregnant and having babies with my Lycan hubby) so I’m constantly on the lookout for cute flat shoes. Made for Slink, Maitreya, Belleza, and TheMeshProject feet, these sandals elegantly wrap up your calves without feeling the least bit bulky.

Taste the Rainbow of Shoes

One thing I love about Secondlife is the creativity of its users. Although I know I don’t have the largest inventory count by any means, I do know that I have quite a large shoe collection. I’m a shoe addict. Fashion, or shopping, is a favorite hobby of mine. While I love jewels and sparkly things like diamonds, shoes are my best friend. Hence, my tagline is Forget Diamonds: Give Me Shoes.

Today I decided I was in the mood for some comfy overalls and my candy colored flats. My overalls are great for gardening or a mom on the go. They come with appliers for Omega, Maitreya, Slink, Belleza, TheMeshProject, Baby Bump, and others. The Dark Fae’s Boardwalk Flats are 10 lindens per pair at the Wash Cart Sale. Perfect for lounging around the house or a date of exploration. The shoes are made for Slink flat feet or Maitreya feet and come with a Hud with four shoe base colors to match any outfit. Only choice you have to make is which bead color you want! 🙂 (I bought them in Skittles and the Violet because I looooove purple)
