Love’s Photo Challenge Entry – #4 – Then vs. Now

Snapshot_002

If you haven’t been to Somnia lately, make sure you stop in and take a walk up the stairs as there are two very long rows of lucky boards with new releases as prizes.  They have a two minute turn over, and there are a ton of wildcards!  I was lucky enough to snag the Oh La La Sweater last night.  The jeans I am wearing along with the sweater are Cynful’s Skinny Jeans in Stripes Blue.  This was available at the last round of The Dressing Room Fusion as Tiana showed them in her post (here).  They are no longer available at TDRF, but may be available at the Cynful Mainstore.

I am going to hijack this post and show you my FabFree Photo Challenge #4 Entry for Then vs. Now.  I had a hard time coming up with old photos, as I try to delete all of that old stuff, in order to make room for the daily flood of incoming inventory, but I found an old photo in my Facebook account.  I need to apologize straight off for the horrible photo quality lol.  Fortunately my SL photo skills have improved somewhat over time too.

Love’s Photo Challenge Entry – #4 – Then vs. Now

When I look back at my old photos, I think… “That girl looks like trouble!”.  It was a different time, and place in my SLife.  Back then my avatar was a whole different woman.  She was new to Second Life and explored all kinds of avenues.  At one point she was even a dancer at a club, and a lingerie model.  I think after I found blogging, I became an avatar that is much more a reflection of my real self.

If you would like to participate in this challenge, you can find more information at THIS LINK.

Mother Goose, Bonne Chance, SOUL & SuPerBia

Its not really like me to deviate away from my usual Windlight settings of “AnaLutetia – AvatarOpt2 Whiter” but after wandering through Tempura and its beautiful Autumnal scenary I wanted to make at least one picture look really pretty. So I went through the options and settled on the Windlight Setting called “Annyka’s Soft Lavender Day” for these pictures!

I love the Autumn Poncho by Soul, its perfect to keep you snuggly warm while you go wandering through the woods. It might be a little too cold for shorts but the Group Gift Zoe Shorts by Bonne Chance! are just too cute to resist! Good thing I have these suspender socks by Dirty.Little.Secret to keep at least some of my legs warm!

I decided to sass the outfit up a little with some accessories by SuPerBia. You can find the piercings and Earplugs as Group Gifts at their mainstore and the Halloween Nails are free at their stall at The Midnight Nightmares Halloween Market

The skin is by Mother Goose and is another addition to their growing 1L skin range. I love the cute little stars above the eyes!

I think its time I went home and got a mug of cocoa before I catch a cold!

A D!va At Bonne Chance

I’m sure by reading my posts you have probably learned that I am a bit of a hair whore lol…  I can’t control myself when it comes to well made SL hair…  My inventory is packed with hair!  Actually I am also weak in the skin and shoe department as well, but who’s counting, right?   Check out this new group gift from D!va – It comes in two different styles and in a fatpack of colours so that you can wear your shade!  I am so excited about this one I can hardly wait to hit publish and tell you all about it.  It’s called More Than 15000 Group Member Celebration Gift and includes Mana Type A and Mana Type B!  The group is free to join and there are many more gifts up the stairs along the back wall to be picked up.

1.  D!va Hair Mana Type A

bonnechance_001

The beautiful blue dip dyed dress I am wearing in the photo with D!va Mana Type A is a dollarbie from Bonne Chance.  It’s called Marine OP and you can pick it up with your Bonne Chance Group Tag (which is free) for 1L.

2.  D!va Hair Mana Type B

bonnechance_002

Along with D!va Mana Type B, I am wearing Bonne Chance ‘s Group Gift which is free with your group tag activated (free to join).  Group Gift White Dress is a sweet baby doll dress with a big floppy bow under the bust.

My Natural Pride Necklace is a dollarbie from B!asta.  For 1L you can pick up this leather cord with feather pendant as a special treat from B!asta.  I can see this going with so many casual outfits!

D!va also has their two new releases Mimi and Ami in the lucky boards in the lucky board limited ruby colour, both with two bangs options.  Mimi even allows you to change the hair pin colour!  You do have to join the group to hit the lucky boards (but again it’s free).

Bonne Chance Mes Amies!

Bonne chance translated to English is good luck, and that’s just what you’ll need to win these sweet fashions below! Bonne Chance has a few new goodies in their lucky boards.  I believe you have to join the group for one of the boards, but the group is free.  Took me a while to get all four of them but I finally did – and met a great lady while board stalking who was a big help to me! I meet the nicest people while out on the prowl for freebies – It was a real pleasure to meet you today Krystal! Thank you for your help :)

I also wanted to show off in the photos this fabulous new hairstyle from Truth featured at Collabor88.  You get the entire fatpack of colours (including the new ROOTS version) for 88L!  Not free, but totally fabulous!!

The first item I am going to show you is my favourite out of the bunch, although all of them are lovely! This cute item could be either a shirt or a babydoll dress as it is charming with or without pants.
1.  Bonne Chance – Coco One Piece Rose
bonnechance2_001

The second item on the boards is this adorable striped top with lace straps, which is great with jeans, a pair of shorts, or a cute little summer skirt.

2.  Bonne Chance – Striped Lace LB
bonnechance_001

The third item was the toughest for me to win, but I am so glad I waited it out because this oh so dainty blouse is simply adorable on.

3.  Bonne Chance – Bibi Shirt LB

bonnechance_002

 And last but not least, this cute pair of summer jammies, and  quite possibly the cutest summer jammies in all of SL!  I love the mint green colour and the mini floral print.

4.   Bonne Chance – Dream Girl Pyjamas LB

Make sure you also check the desk at the front of the store for a couple of group gifts! (free to join)

More from PouPee Hunt!

Secondlife finally decided to let me take pictures without crashing me so I took advantage of that (because who knows how long that would last :P) and I took more pictures of gifts from the PouPee hunt – not everything, but a few of my favorites in no order.

The first item is from Graph, it’s a Mexican scarf that ties around your waist – with a version for both male and female. I think it looks cute with a simple tank top and jeans but could easily be adding into a more detailed outfit.
graph_001edit

MudHoney has an adorable princess playhouse. It’s probably not for tall people but it’s only temporarily linked so you can also take pieces from it that you like.
mudhoney_001edit

And I found a cute linen romper outfit at Pesca with a cute tube top, belt, and shorts it practically screams “summer”. :P
pesca_001edit

Boom has these cute Lil Bow Peeper pink sunglasses with light pink bows on the sides (that my hair covers) and they also have a Mini Rose Garden Vintage vest which looks sexy by itself and cute paired up with a tank top.
boom_001edit
boom_002edit

Miseria has plaid bandeau tops in three colors; pink, green, and blue!
miseriacollage

I found this really cute white basket bag at Tokidoki (ToKiD) and I love how it goes with everything, while still having a summer feel and we should definitely soak up as much of summer as we can.
ToKiD_001edit

Undefined Lilies has cute finger mustaches with gold (pictured) or silver outlining and a cute animation that reminds me of my friends and I drawing mustaches on our fingers. I think I instantly look like a detective.
undefinedlilies_001edit

Bonne Chance has this gorgeous dress in marine that I loved right when I put it on – it’s sort of like a maxi-dress but not quite, and it reminds me of the ocean.
bonnechanceedit

I I3fashion_001edit

I found a cute mini dress at Pure Style.
purestyle_001edit

D.S has an awesome butterfly typer that makes butterflies appear when you type. I was worried it would be too particle-y but it isn’t bad and I’ve already gotten a few compliments on it.
dalstore_001edit

S@bbia, which I’ve blogged before and was excited to see participating in a hunt, has a two part gift; a cute maxi dress and wedge heels for their prize.
sabbia_001edit

LittleGirl’s gift is a cute fluffy rabbit you wear on your head.
littlegirl_001edit

The second gift found at Somapop is a casual sweater with the number 13 on it which is one of my lucky numbers coincidentally. :P
somapop_001edit

And finally, Bingo has two gifts out for this hunt. A cute pair of orange Stephanie Says pajamas and a unisex Do the Joy shirt.

The hunt goes until August 8th!
Hints & stores can be found on the PouPee Hunt blog along with more pictures of hunt gifts!
