Days Gone by…

This is a reason I just love Second Life even after 8 years ~ there are so many talented builders creating Sims that are just amazing ~ I found one Sim that just reminded me of days gone by “The Dirty Grind” ~ it is listed as urban/eclectic, rating is moderate and will be on my list to go back again and again really taking time to explore but for the moment I found just what I needed to show off this outfit by DE.Boutique that is at Designer Showcase this month ~

DS11aa

Megan Jumpsuit by DE Boutique

Yes lights, camera and action and as I posed just had to look around but have no fear I will be back to this gorgeous sim ~ really can you see how this just fit in with my theme…kudo’s to the builders ~ and kudo’s to creator of this gorgeous jumpsuit ~ comes with a Hud that gives you 8 color choices as I chose the checked look ~ a very flirty outfit that will just fit in for the upcoming summer season…

DS11bb

back view 

I love the ruffles on the straps and around the leg area ~ really gives a cute look and when the weather reaches those high temps this will be ultra comfy and pairing this I accessorized it with the gorgeous necklace and earrings from Moondance Boutique

DS11b

Necklace & Earrings by Moondance Boutique

I always love Moondance’s jewelry as it comes with not a hud but just touching the gems you get a nice drop down menu that the choices are limitless as you can see that I changed the metal to black and the gems onyx and diamond to compliment my outfit ~ same with the earrings as well ~ such an array of metal and gem choices this will be a keeper for your inventory ~ and to finish off my outfit I grabbed the shoes from Ghee 

DS11c

Curve Appeal Heels by Ghee 

Unusual shape of heels makes this a favorite along with the hud ~ with the price of these shoes being affordable too ~ As you can see am looking smart & chic ~ looking to grab these items here is your TAXI to Designer Showcase ~ enjoy and till next time please be good to yourself ~ Peace out ♥

A milestone met…

It is always nice to make a milestone and I made one with 500 posts ~ YAY me ~ that might seem so so as other bloggers am sure have surpassed that number years ago but I seriously started blogging 2 years ago with a few minor interruptions like moving, no internet to put cause that yes numbers could be higher ~ but am working on it just like am working on showing off this gorgeous Spring Outfit Raina from Shoenique Designs that is at this months Designer Showcase ~

DS10a

Raina dress & heels by Shoenique

As Easter is almost right here this is a perfect Easter ensemble even if the shoes are being sold separate they really are so affordable that why wouldn’t you just get them both…

DS10b

Closer look

Looks like another winner with the sheer overlay and flowers that you see decorating the center of my cleavage can be added or not added, which gives you a nice choice ~ the theme of those gorgeous floral designs are carried down to the heels…

DS10c

Raina heels 

Cute bow feature on that peekaboo toe that I simply adore ~ there will be no worries about fit as both fitted my Maitreya simply perfectly but for those worried please try the demo before you buy…Shoenique has come to your rescue if you are looking for the fabulous Easter outfit and here is your TAXI ~ its the middle of the month so you do have time to get whisked away and wander around before making your final decision but why wait ~ for now I really want to thank all my readers for taking time out to read, for the designers that always give such nice feedback and to those that follow and support my page really really so appreciated ~ please stick around & till remember be good to yourself ~ Peace out ♥

Did you know…

About The Botanical Garden in SL ~ the place is truly amazing and this one is the oldest in Second Life as you can see in the pic below

DS8a

The Botanical Garden 

Can you see what a gorgeous place this is to explore and to show off the outfit from IM Collection that you can find at this months Designer Showcase ~ being so close to Easter I just had to find a hat to wear as well *giggling*

DS8b

Dolly Top & Shorts by IM Collection ~ Boots by Lindy

Love love the splatter top but there are also other choices just this was my fave along with the smart criss cross at the bottom ~ unique as I give you a close up

DS8bb

Dolly Top ~ IM Collection 

Fits nice and gives a great spring/summer look ~ since these are separates you do not have to choose to get the shorts but I liked matching them with the shorts especially since both are “exclusive” to the Designer Showcase this month ~ little muddy walking around with all the recent rains so I slipped on Lindy’s “Tessa” boots that are a dream to wear but unsure please try on demo they have for you ~ Lindy also has a nice array of colors along with making these boots very affordable ~

DS8d

Tessa Boots by Lindy

Only showing the back view of these as I adore the zipper feature really stepping up on the look ~ a great addition for any wardrobe no matter what season ~  now am gonna wander around with my bestie Dena and definitely will save this location to come back again and again ~ am passing you again 2 Taxi’s to take you to Designer Showcase  then the other one to The Botanical Garden  so you can also enjoy the oldest full-sim public garden in SL ~ till next time please be good to yourself ~ Peace out ♥

Cheshire is smiling…

The Cheshire has reason to smile as he sees me in the gorgeous “exclusive item” from DE.Boutique at this months Designer Showcase ~ along with accessorizing myself with Zora heels and gorgeous jewelry by Chop Zuey ~ so let me show you just why Cheshire is smiling…

DS9a

Donna Dress by DE. Boutique

Dressed in all black really does not really show this dress off to its full potential but what a classic look it gives especially with the jewels from Chop Zuey gracing my neck and wrist~ but wait this dress comes with a great Hud that will give you a variety of looks that I had to just give you another look ~

DS9aa

closer up view

You can see the cute bow and the sheer overlay ~ with the hud you will be able to change the look as I did giving you again more bang for those hard earned lindens… please notice the necklace and bracelet from Chop Zuey that is her Bridal Edition and a unbelievable price as well…now let me show you the back view ~

DS9b

Sheer overlay on the Donna Dress

I love this combination little bit teasing as you can see it is sheer and shows off your bum very nicely and yes that Cheshire is grinning up a storm ~ he knows this dress looks sexy and will be a very nice addition to your wardrobe ~ accessorizing with heels from DE.Boutique as well that for the price of them YOU need to grab them…

DS9c

Zora Heels

Yes these also have a great hud and will add that just needed splash of color to give you that finished chic look ~ for this I wanted the total outfit to really pop and stand out so I grabbed this interesting hair called “Stars” by Emotions from the recent Hairology that is now open till the end of the month just like Designer Showcase ~ for you I will add 2 taxi’s to get to first up the Designer Showcase to wander around possibly try on the demo for this dress if you are worried about fit and then off to Hairology ~ oh and am sure you are curious about Cheshire, the Teapot and the Crooked House…well they all came from this months Deco(c)rate a really cool subscription that each month has a theme, which this month was Into the Looking Glass ~ for you that love getting new decor you might wanna check it out ~ anyway till next time please be good to yourself ~ Peace Out ♥

Revisiting…

I always try to take time to go back and revisit sims that I love and know the landscape will be just perfect for a blog post so I was surprised when I went back to Black Basalt Beach and found it was here but not here ~ seems new owners have taken over the sim and renamed it to Cannibia ~ and again I am loving it with the new changes still has that hazy overcast skies and the surf and sand ~

Cannibia

Welcome to Cannibia

Course you need to visit it especially if you are looking for some great photo ops as they really have gone overboard making these very photogenic for photographers in SL ~ TAXI for you to go and check it out ~ as I walked around showing off this cute romper from 1 Hundred that is being featured at Designer Showcase this month ~

DS7a

Spring Romper by 1 Hundred 

What a cute romper to bring Spring in ~ with 6 different choices this will be a fave of mine ~ let me show you even closer

DS7b

Front View of Romper 

Front and back have that adorable bow and look at the ruffle on the legs ~ the outfit does not disappoint as the fit is perfect ~ 100% mesh as well…

DS7c

Back View

ut oh ummm wonder what he or she was waiting for ~ maybe the perfect partner *giggling* sorry to say no one is perfect even in SL ~ but I will say this outfit is perfect for a spring or summer outing ~ guess I better skedaddle as there are so much more to show you ~ your TAXI awaits to take you to Designer Showcase ~ till next time be good to yourself ~ Peace out ♥

Summers coming…

Yes it is rapidly getting to be that time to look around and get ready for that first summer day when you strut yourself down to the shore in that latest bikini AND I have just the one for you ~ this is from Tori’s Stylez that is very trendy and uber sexy and is at this months Designer Showcase ~ I grabbed sunscreen, the bikini and headed out to this amazing surfing beach at Bundy Reef where the waves are huge and there is free yes free surfboards ~ ever been surfing in SL its fun and little different ~ but today I fulfilled another bucket list in being a lifeguard ~ yuppers always wanted to be one of the first female lifeguards at our local beach ~ but well from the testing and kind of doing a fail on the rescue part that just didn’t happen…

DS6b

Bailey Bikini by Toris Stylez

Staring up at those stairs and looking around making sure no real lifeguard was lurking I just had to see how it felt in that chair oh and by the way really love how interesting and sexy this bikini looks from behind as I can imagine hubby would love to have a chance at all those straps *wink* ~ fits just perfectly especially those that are not comfy letting the whole world see your entire bum ~ so give me a moment while I climb up the stairs and have a seat in the “lifeguard chair….

DS6a

In the Lifeguard Chair

Oh my binoculars, donuts a nice padded seat ~ wow finally after years I am sitting in a lifeguard chair how cool is that *giggling* but what can I say was a childhood/teen year dream that just didn’t work out but hey isnt that what Second Life is a second chance to do stuff you either could never envision yourself doing for whatever reason but now you can ~ and wear fantastic clothes like this awesome bikini that I need to hop down and really show off the front of it for you…

DS6c

Bailey Bikini

The designer really went the xtra step making this bikini not your every day one with all the criss cross of the straps around the waist to how it also is criss crossing on the top too…but still making it very enticing and attention getting ~ with the color choices that will be the only hard part when you take the TAXI and seriously grab this up ~ affordable that you might wanna grab a couple or even better that fatpack ~ as the designer did say there just might be some xtra goodie in there….but very hush hush ~ a jump start on summer for you ~ splurge a little and take the taxi look around and stick around with me as I have lot more goodies from Designer Showcase to show you ~ till then be good to yourself ~ Peace out ♥

Are there April Showers…

Remember the saying April Showers bring May Flowers ~ a passage that reminds you spring is here – the flowers are just starting to peak up from the ground and a rebirth is beginning…Spring is my favorite season because of all the varieties of gorgeous flowers that you only see in the next couple months ~ like the pansies or those tiny grape hyacinth you see sprouting up on people’s lawns as well as my favorite flower the daffodils begin to sprout and bloom so it just made sense to me to show off this gorgeous dress from Albino Peacock that for me screams SPRING ~ am sure you will agree ~

DS5

Ariel Gown by Albino Peacock

With my windblown hair I hold onto my umbrella tightly to show you this gorgeous violet version of the Ariel gown by Albino Peacock ~ yes I really like this gown being in 2 separate pieces leaving just that little bit of tummy showing off…from the beaded sheer top that is very form fitting with just the right amount skin showing as well ~ then you move downward to the skirt that is just patterned fabulously in flowers with a sexy split showing off those sleek legs you have…but let us not forget how the back looks as well ~

DS5b

back view of Ariel gown 

Making the top even sexier with the cutout that will make whoever is watching smile and let their imagination possibly run rampant seeing another back slit showing off those legs and of course your feet deserve something special as well as I slipped my feet into a pair of KC Couture heels also at Designer Showcase ~ Albino Peacock has made this gown so affordable that you could choose a couple of their 6 different colors ~ a demo does await if you want to try on first ~ you know me as you wait for me to show you a close up of those gorgeous heels…

DS5c

Yulia Heels by KC Couture

These stunning shoes comes with a Hud that has so many choices of colors you will basically live in these ~ everything that you see on this shoe the color can be changed which is why I left that cute bow as is ~ the design is for me spot on liking the how the heel is done ~ little different but loving the look ~ KC Couture has made these heels so affordable that YOU my readers should not resist these shoes or that gown ~ and for those that might not know me very well when I make statements like that its because I truly like the item ~ all designers at events want you to buy their clothes and as a blogger I want my readers to trust my judgement and possibly the choices of clothing or items that I show off and recommend for you ~ possibly cuz am picky and just not one to put something on just cause…oh my raindrops are starting to fall again so here is your TAXI to Designer Showcase for you ~ enjoy ~ take time to wander around inside and outside…please stick around as there is a bikini that I have my eye on for summer that I will be showing off to you ~ be good to yourself ~ Peace out ♥
