Summer Girl

Posted on Updated on

Summertime, you are a tricky beast! No sooner had I started pining for Autumn when a lovely bundle of swimsuits came my way, and with a click of an applier button, I fell in love with the summery weather once more. Also, what better way to show off a lovely new tattoo than while wearing not very much at all? And any excuse I may find to visit one of my favorite sims is a truly worthwhile one, I’d say. So strike up “Summer Lovin'”, because it’s back to the beach with me!

First and foremost, I want to mention this gorgeous White Widow tattoo, which is a Gold level prize from The Collection, the brand new interactive adventure game from MadPea. You will become the main character in a quest that will lead you to a bevy of hidden treasures, following the clues and solving the puzzles you encounter in order to progress. It’s deeper than a traditional point-and-click game, and far more than just a hunt. The Collection has deeply immersive story and a truly unique style, so I highly recommend visiting the MadPea Games website to learn more about how to get started with this not-to-be-missed event!

In shopping event exclusives, I’m wearing the beautifully hand-drawn Giselle II Bikini by alaskametro<3, which may be found at the current round of AnyBody along side my fabulous lipstick by Nova Bodyshop. Over at the WearHouse event, you’ll find the gorgeous Ginger hairstyle by Tukinowaguma – a true bombshell style with an exceptional number of choices in the color HUDs – as well as an excellent and versatile pose set by Agapee.

I also want to give a special mention to my Chevron Necklace by Paper Arrow, which is the first piece of jewelry I’ve personally seen that features a specialized mesh body fit. I’m wearing the Maitreya (Beta) fit, and it may just be the first necklace I’ve ever worn in Second Life that did not have to be adjusted or resized in some fashion. So awesome! It fits beautifully against the skin with applier clothing, and works with mesh tops as well. A fitted version for Belleza’s Isis body is also included.

I hope you’re having a wonderful week so far, and please do check out The Collection by MadPea; it promises to be a thrilling and rewarding way to enjoy a whole new aspect of Second Life, and the prizes on offer in the Silver and Gold packages are wonderful. See you there! ♥

The Sweetest Thing

Posted on Updated on

Hiya, sweeties! This will be a quick post, as I’m a grumpy goose after fighting with my PC and Internet connection all night to get photos taken. Alas, I only captured the one but I hope it will suffice to show off these super charming items from Che Bella that may be found as gacha prizes at the Candy Fair, which is ongoing through July 17th!

Speaking of gachas, I’m thrilled to be blogging for MadPea, who have put together a Collector’s Event launching this weekend that will be offering both vintage MadPea memorabilia, as well as the opportunity to buy, sell and trade items with gacha collectors from all over the grid. Event visitors will also have the chance to snag a coveted “Golden Ticket” which will offer free, early access to the next MadPea game, The Collection. The MadPea Collector’s Market will be open from Friday, July 10th through Sunday, July 19th!

This truly is the ultimate event weekend, as these highly anticipated shopping faires, festivals, and events are ALL beginning within the next few days:

Indie Teepee: Friday, July 10th – 24th
The Seasons Story: Friday, July 10th – 31st
Oh My Gacha: Friday, July 10th – 31st
Hair Fair 2015: Saturday, July 11th – 26th
Wizarding Faire 2015: Sunday, July 12th – 25th

Exhausted yet? I know I surely am! I think it’s fair to say (or perhaps it’s “hair” to say) that Hair Fair 2015 is going to be one of the most jammed packed events of the year, and for good reason! An incredible wealth of hair brands will be represented at the event, many offering free hairstyles and/or accessories as gifts to event goers. But the generous free gifts aren’t even the best part:
every purchase made at the Hair Fair will donate a portion of proceeds to Wigs For Kids, a wonderful charity that creates wigs and hair replacement options for children who have lost their hair due to any number of medical issues.

There will even be an official “Bandana Day” on July 26th where participants are encouraged to remove their hair and purchase special, resident-created bandanas, with 100% of all bandana sales benefiting Wigs For Kids. Find out more at the official Hair Fair 2015 website, and don’t forget that you can gain access to hair demos from the comfort of your own virtual home by joining the Hair Fair Demos group in-world. Just paste this group address into your viewer’s Local Chat box to join: secondlife:///app/group/2e30d166-f3e5-e2de-ff72-b3da2d06ded2/about. Demo hairs are due to be sent out on July 10th, so prepare to be dazzled with an amazing selection of event-exclusive hairstyles!

Sheesh, even my “short” posts are wordy! :) So that’s enough from me; credits for my sugar-sweet, candy inspired look are below. I’m off to rest up before the weekend’s Eventstravaganza. Hope you’ve all had a brilliant week so far!
