The World Is Your Oyster

Its The Arcade Gacha time again! Wooo! Its a task and a half to get into it or the Arcade Gacha Galley which is the alternative shopping area for the Arcade where you can scan your camera in to play the camera, but it sure is worth it!

There are so many great things in this round I almost fainted. One thing you can always count on at this event is that if you love interior design then you are going to find a treasure trove of amazing furniture and knick knacks to decorate your home. One of my hobbies is changing the decor of my home on a regular basis. I thought I would take a break away from my usual fashion posts to show you some of the great home furnishings you can find here! Full details are at the bottom of the post.

I always like having a little office area.. and the Workspace set from Tres Blah at The Arcade Gacha, really fits the bill perfectly. All the tiny details are divine and are quite close to my own little work area in my real life home so that is probably why I love this so much. The super comfy Florian Chair is by ISPACHI and is part of their Gacha along with the Florian Pink Trunk and the Picture Frame on the right wall. While the fun slouchy cow fabric chair is the Malmo chair by What Next and can be found in lots of colours in their Gacha machine.

Below is a close up of the desk items. Everything on the desk except the Tarot Cards and the Chatter Teeth are by Tres Blah. The cards and Chatter Teeth are by SORGO at The Arcade Gacha and are part of the Dusty Attic set of items they have in their Gacha. The little Enigma Machine on the floor that the kitty by Fashionably Dead is interested in, in the first picture, is also by SORGO and is the rare item in the Gacha.

All details are below the dotted line! The credits are a little different to how I usually list things but hopefully it will be easier to read this way as more than one item by one designer is grouped together. You can take a look at more items that are available by visiting the shopping guide on The Arcade Website.

All items are under L$75 in this post!

My Goodness it’s been a long week! I hope everyone has been having a great weekend! I’m glad to be back after a long week out of town. Since I’ve been away posting has been difficult, I’ve missed doing them! The good news is I’m back and I’ve got a few really gorgeous items to show you.

There’s nothing like a beautiful set of lingerie to make a lady feel beautiful and feminine. Sometimes I even like to wear super feminine lingerie under my plain old jeans and tshirt, even though no one knows it’s there but me. Having pretty things on under my otherwise plain or boring attire can make me feel like I look sexy anyway! Lucky for people like me, Blacklace recently sent out a gorgeous blue and white complete lingerie set. The set has a pretty floral lace pattern, and includes just about every applier you could imagine. The bra, panties, stockings, and garter-belt are all on system layers and appliers. The corset is fully mesh and comes in standard sizing. I chose to wear my corset with my Slink Physique body, however I would not suggest wearing the corset with the Physique if you’re going to be moving around a lot. The Blacklace group is $99 lindens to join, and they do frequent group gifts. Join the group, check the notices, and don’t miss out on this awesome gift!

To go with my new lingerie, I decided to take my own little twist on the idea of the Victoria’s Secret Angels. I picked up these simply beautiful mesh angel wings for FREE on the Marketplace. They are truly beautiful on. I also managed to get a few of these super cute accessories from the Sweet Things gacha at Gacha Mania. The melty strawberry colored horns, and the cute little melty moon necklace I think give a whimsical feel to the over-all look. Want to see more of these cute accessories from Sweet Things? Check out Tiana’s post here! Not quite demonic, and not completely angelic, I have to say I kind of adore this fun fantastical look. I hope you do too!

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Delicately Delphine

I hope you have all had or are having a great weekend everyone! Its been busy busy in the Omizu household so I’ve been slacking a little with blogging! Yikes! But Im back now to show you some great new gifts and freebies!

Lumae have released their September gifts and if you love their skins or you are looking to experiment with new ones, this is going to be a treat for you. Their newest skin Delphine was released about 2 weeks ago and their new gifts is a version of this really pretty skin with a really beautiful deep purple eyeshadow. Lumiya Rae, the owner of Lumae, has always been super generous with her gifts at her stores and this time is no exception. Her gift is the skin in all 8 tones, but the tones are seperated in to three parts.. Tones 2, 4, 6 and 8 are in the free group gift for her store group, Tones 1 and 5 are the free group gift for the SL Free’s and Offers group. Both of these are found at the Lumae mainstore .. Lastly the Tones 3 and 7 are their new free gift at the FabFree HQ! I think this is a really fun idea and there is a tone to suit everyone.. be sure you collect them all!

The Skins each come with a light brow and a dark brow options and is the medium cleavage versions of the skins. There is a Loud Mouth applier for each tone but there are no other appliers included, however you can buy these seperately at a very reasonable price at the mainstore. Below you can see all the tones together!

You might notice my avatar shape looks a little different in these pictures, this is because I am wearing the Lena Perky Mesh Body by Kitties Lair. This is a new Mesh Body to me. I have been tempted by the other bodies available but as I prefer a more curvy, fuller shape, they have yet to strike a chord with me even when making adjustments to my shape to try to make them more curvy. The Lena Mesh Body comes in two options.. Perky and Lush. Below you can see the difference between the two. Bear in mind they are fitted mesh and will adapt to your own shape. I already have quite a curvy system shape so this is accentuated in the mesh body. Out of the two, my preference for general wear will be the Perky one but you can get demos so you can trial them with your own shape to see which you prefer!


In the picture above, on the Left is my shape worn with the Lena Perky Mesh Body and on the right is my shape worn with the Lena Lush Mesh Body.


On this picture above, I am wearing the Delphine Shape that comes with the Lumae gifts. This is a much more slender shape so you can see the difference that it makes on the two mesh bodies. The Lena bodies are compatible with SLink hands and feet and they also work with the Omega Appliers system for both skins and clothing. The Lena Mesh Bodies are NOT free but I thought they were worth covering as mesh bodies seem to be quite the hot topic at the moment and I thought someone might be interested!

The lingerie I am wearing in the pictures above is also by Lumae and is called Delicate. It is available in 3 tones for L$75 per tone and comes with system layers that you can wear on the regular Second Life avatar as well as a HUD that offers Omega, SLink, WowMeh, Phat Azz, Lola, Lush and Puffy appliers! So pretty much everyone is covered! Also it comes with a Petites version!

The Petite skin I am wearing is called Una and is also by Lumae. You can find it in all eight tones at the Genre event which is especially for Petites this month! Nothing is over L$100 so if you love Petites be sure to pay the event a visit before it closes very soon! A quick word of caution though, you will need to have a modifyable version of Yabusaka’s Petite Mesh Avatar to be able to wear these skins as they use the Omega Appliers System. If you have the Fallen Gods or Al Vulo Petite Avatar, you will not be able to use these as you are unable to change anything about the avatars.

The Dark Body by PANIK is the main focal point of the first picture with the awesome Rose Shoes for SLink High Feet by The Candy Shop adding some pretty spectacular glitz. The Rose Shoes are not free but are L$1 to buy! There are others available too! I added the Lolita Shades by Luxe to give the outfit a bit of a cuter look. The Moon Crystals Earrings and Necklace by Chop Zuey add a bit more sparkle while the Nautical Wristbands by add a little more colour.

In this picture you can see another length of earring and necklace from the The Moon Crystals set by Chop Zuey. There are three lengths in all and it comes in both black and white.. which incidently, so does The Lace Top by MoDANNA. Here I am showing the black version. This also comes with Tango appliers!

Ooh la la, Paris, c’est manifique!

It’s been a little while since I was last in Paris, so I thought that today would be a good day to take a stroll around the city. Of course, with Paris being the fashion capital of the world, I needed to look my best. Lucky for me, I had a few great group gifts that made me totally look the part.

redparis1

My bright and summery dress came from a hot tip from Love, about this cute dress being offered as a group gift at CandyMetal. I ran my little booty over there, and knew I had to have it, I mean…just look at that red! The Peggy Summer Dress is mesh, and comes in the standard sizes. The CandyMetal group is free to join, so once you join, and slap your tag on, this beauty is yours, for free, after touching the poster. I just love the sweet bow on the chest.

redparis4

Speaking of bows, the killer heels I am wearing are also adorned with bows :) The .:ECCO:. Velize 2 in White are a SLF&O’s group gift. These are made for SLink high feet, and there is a second version in the folder that comes without bows, just in case you don’t like bows…but how could you not? The SLF&O’s group is free to join, and if you have your tag on, the shoes are free for you! If you love these shoes, you will be happy to know that there is a second pair available for free for members of our very own Fabulously Free in SL group, which is also free to join (though I am sure most of you reading this blog are already in it). 2 free pairs of sexy heels, just for being in groups you are probably already a part of? *does a happy dance*

*Edit – So sorry folks, when I originally posted this, I thought there was a version for standard AV feet as well, but I am mistaken, so I have removed the part where I said that. Sorry for any inconvenience.

redparis2

OK, while I loved the look of the shoes and dress alone, I felt, trying to be very fashion conscious, that I needed an accessory. I hopped onto the Marketplace and typed in ‘Clutch’. I know, this cute little purse is not a clutch purse, but that’s ok, the bright colours totally worked with my dress, and best of all? It was only L$1! Score! The My Heart Bag – Dollarbie is from the Marketplace store of Things I Like, and there really is an awful lot of things I like there. You get 2 purses in the folder, each with a slightly different holding pose. Both are set to attach to your right hand, I just did a little adjustment to put it in my left hand so as to work with my pose.

redparis3

I confess, while I am wandering around Paris, it is actually Paris in 1900. So, despite being fashionable for our time period, I stick out a little. Luckily, landmarks like the Eiffel Tower, and the Arc D’Triumphe are timeless. I highly suggest you come take a look around here if you have never been.

Mes bons amis, il est temps de se dire au revoir, which is french for, My good friends, it is time to say goodbye. Well, at least until I find some other wonderful thing I have to show you all, which will be in no time at all! So until then, c’est tout pour le moment, which is about the same as TTFN *waves*

Into The Wilderness

Hi again everyone! Mr0mizu is back again with a few more freebies and discounts for you to enjoy! Tiana seemed quite amused by me taking the reigns yesterday so I thought I would do it again! Besides, the beard is back and you know I like to show it off ~laughs~

There is a really great free group gift of the Militia Vest & Shirt by Lavarock Creations. This comes as a two piece set so you can wear either the the Vest or the Shirt seperately or together like I am here! I love functionality when it comes to clothing.. if I can wear pieces seperately then its a winner with me.

I showed the Cargo Shorts by Cargo Shorts (HUD Colour Change) by GioMEN that are available at The Cosmopolitain Sales Room in a post back last week but they are totally worth showing again before the round is over. You need this in your wardrobe! They are L$70 and you get a HUD with 10 different colours for the shorts and the belt seperately so there are heaps of options.

Don’t forget that The Blues Hunt ends on the 31st August so if you havent snagged some great prizes for L$5 each then do it now! You can find the Casual Sandals for Male SLink Flat Feet by The Body Factory as one of the gifts and there are many more to find.. you can read more about some of them in these posts here and here!

Have a great day everyone!

I am the Dotted rainbow in this storm!

So, I bet you all thought that you had seen the last of the Do the Dots Hunt from me, eh? Well, I thought I would show one last look. It just so happens that the group gift from Essenz that I also wanted to show you, goes perfectly with one of the hunt prizes!

rainydots1

So, this cute pink dress, is the Do the Dots hunt gift from Get Frocked. It is mesh, and available in the standard sizes, and do I really need to say how much I love the colours in it? I think you all know me well enough by now :)

rainydots2

The other Do the Dots hunt gift I wanted to show you, that I am putting to good use in this rain, is the Polka Dot Umbrella in Cyan, from ::Be.YOU.Tiful::. When you find the hunt gift in their store, you actually get 3 different colours of this umbrella, the 2 I am not showing you are a red one, and a black one. They do have a holding animation, but I prefer using my own pose.

Now, let me remind you, incase you have forgotten, or did not see my other Dot hunt posts, that this is a free hunt, all gifts are L$0, and you are looking for a white and black polka dotted ball. You still have a little bit of time left to do this hunt if you haven’t already, as it runs until Aug 31.Hints and previews are listed  HERE.

rainydots3

My lovely sandals, perfect for puddle jumping, well, as long as you like water between your toes, like I do, are the current free group gift from Essenz.  The Arizona Sandals, in pink, are for SLink flat feet, and all you need to do is head down to the store, put your group tag on, and click on the gift that is on the counter. The group is L$350 to join, but I think it is worth it for these sandals alone.

OK lovelies, I think that is officially it for me and dots…at least for now. My love of polka dots runs too deep to be over them completely, to the chagrin of my Mom, who is not fond of them. LOL. Until next time, when I shall be dot free…maybe, TTFN *waves*
