Can a Rock Star wear a cat print?

Happy Friday everyone!! How has your week been? Mine, hot……I was melting all week, as I do not have air conditioning in my house, but when you live in an area where 3/4 of the year is winter…it’s almost silly to have one. LOL. Anyways, enough about that, I have a few fun hunt gifts to show you :)

rockstar1

With it being the start of the month, there are loads of new hunts starting up, 2 of which, are the FemBoy Hunt, and the Cupcakes Anonymous Hunt. Insanya is participating in both of these hunts, and it just so happens that the 2 hunt items go together perfectly! First up is the :::insanya::: Kitten Shirt for the Cupcakes Anonymous Hunt. This is not a free hunt, each prize is set at L$5, but, when you find the cupcake for this shirt in the store, you will see that it is worth it. This super cute, kitty print, mesh shirt comes in standard sizes, and also comes with a texture change HUD with 10 different colours to choose from. The cat print was a win for me right off the bat, but the texture change HUD just made it even better :) The other hunt gift, from the FemBoy hunt, are the :::insanya::: Liquid Latex Capris – Leo – FemBoy Edition. Now, do not assume that this is a hunt just for the boys, as you can see, these capris are totally female friendly, they are system layer pants, and  even come with appliers for Physique, Wowmeh, Phatazz, and Booty. I think they make a great pair of leggings in this outfit. This is also not a free hunt, but each prize is only L$2.

rockstar2

Isn’t it awesome how well the 2 prizes work together, with a few well chosen, fun extras I had in my inventory, I kinda feel like the lead singer for an 80’s punk/pop rock band. Hmm..maybe I need to start up a band in SL…..I just need to come up with a great name, preferably with ‘Cats’ or ‘Kitty’ worked in there. Any suggestions? LOL

Well, until next time…Rock ON!!!

Summer Evening Breezes Blew ~ The Aloha Fair Pt 3

Hello everyone! Its the end of another week again and I hope you are all doing well. Here is another installment of The Aloha Fair and today I am concentrating on some of the swimwear you can find at the event. For the last two installments, be sure to check here and here!

Aloha 3

There are some really really amazing dollarbies and freebies here, so I very much hope you are all taking the opportunity to come and take a look around! If you are wanting some great shoes for your SLinks then the Detroit Shoes made for SLink High Feet by Essenz are a really amazing find and are the perfect summer slingback. I’ve teamed it the really colourful and fun Aloha Bikini by Beautiful Dirty Rich. One must have for when you are on the beach is a fan to keep you cool and the Aloha Fan by Dyer Maker will definately do that.. all I need now is a willing participant who will stand and fan me while I relax in the sun ~laughs~

I am sure you will find a bikini you will love. If you are looking for something a little more daring then the Skimpy Bikini by OSITO could be the one for you with its pretty floral pattern. Or for a little more coverage, then you could try the Hawaiian Print Bikini by Rir Designs in its classic design. Finally if you want a little bit of bling when you are out on the beach then try the Chained Bikini by Ch’s on for size! This also comes with appliers for Lola, Phat Azz, WowMeh and SLink!

There are some really great accessories here also. I have already shown you the Hanalei Ring by Bliensen & MaiTai in purple, so today I am showing you the pink version! The gorgeous Flower Garland is by Legal Insanity and really was made to match the pink Hanalei Ring so well! My Gold Hoop Earrings w/ Seahorses are by Grumble. They are so cute!

The beautiful skin I am wearing is called Nima and is by Lumae. You can be find it in their Gacha machine at the event, available in two tones and seven make ups for each tone to try for. The nails that I am wearing are also by Lumae and is a freebie that also includes some modifyable female shapes! Below is the HUD so you can see all the colours available!

A quick note about the Gachas.. there are two seperate areas made especially for all the gachas at the event so be sure to look for those!

We Burst Into Colours And Carousels – Aloha Fair pt2

Im back again with more from The Aloha Fair! You can see Part 1 here and there will be more posts to come over the next few days so be sure to stay tuned! The event runs until August 11th so be sure to stop by for some summer sunshine to brighten your days!

Here are some more great dollarbies and freebies that you can find from the very generous and amazing designers at the fair and Im not even half way done yet! There really is so much to see here so be sure to come back again for more coverage.

I really love the Aloha Necklace by Candy Nail that adds a colourful punch to any outfit. The Blue Earrings by Emporium matches the blue in the necklace really well so they are a great combination to pep up the darker colours in my outfit. The gorgeous lace Aloha Top by NerdMonkey is a great choice to cool down in when off to the coffee shop to catch up with friends and the You & Me Jeans by VooDoo Dolls gives the right amount of casual charm. I adore the little Hanalei Ring by Bliensen & MaiTai which comes in several colours besides the pinky colour I am wearing. Not forgetting the really cute little MintSalmon Clutch by Vertice and the Blue Leopard Heels by BElieve to complete the look!

The gorgeous skin I am wearing is called Didy and is by WoW Skins. Included are the appliers for SLink, plus Lola and Lush mesh breasts. You also get two cleavage options and a shape (though I am wearing my own shape in the pictures). You can also see the Aloha Necklace by Candy Nail in much better detail. Isnt it cute! I love the watermelon accents!

Im off to get that well deserved coffee! Have a great day everyone!

Do You Want To Go To Hawaii? – Aloha Fair pt 1

The Aloha Fair has started and is a celebration of all that is summer and sunshine! It runs until August 11th so there is plenty of time to come and soak up the tropical atmosphere and snap up some great bargains and exclusive items!

You can also find a whole host of freebies and dollarbies as well as two gacha areas and bazaar areas where there are huge discounts on amazing items! In the next series of posts from myself, I will be showing you the freebies and dollarbies you can find at the event. To find these, you are looking for a brightly coloured surfboard that will be either inside or propped outside each store.

I have included LM’s to each individual booth, but it is landing point locked at the event so you will land at the main landing point. Hopefully each LM below will show a red beacon on your map so you can find the item by following that!

Aloha

For a tropical splash of colour, you can’t go wrong with the Niokolo Maxi Dress by ArisAris and I can carry all the things I need for my day on the beach with the Aloha Tote Bag by DEW. Eye protection from the summer sun is also a must so the Black Shore Glasses by HollyHood are stylish and perfect for the job! My black slingbacks by Snob are probably not the best things to walk in the sand with but for wandering along the promenade they are great!

Aloha

The gorgeous Alana skin is by Poudre and comes in several different tones with two cleavage options. I will be showing more of these tones during the next few posts! I love wearing flowers in my hair, so the beautiful Hibiscus hair accessory by Delirium Style adds the perfect finishing touch!

I Am Doll Parts

I used to be a collector of BJD’s or Ball Jointed Dolls, so being able to be one in SL has always thrilled me ever since COCO Designs created the BJD Avatar in SL a little while ago. So you can imagine my excitement when I recieved word that they had released a free fatpack of doll heads to wear with the doll body! I ran over as fast as my little ball jointed legs could carry me so I could show them to you!

I Fake It So Real I Am Beyond Fake

In these two pictures I am wearing the Anna head. Above is how the whole doll looks, complete with the body that you can buy seperately. The Red Slip Dress worn in the picture is also by COCO Designs and is another freebie that they have made for the Doll Avatar!

Don’t you just adore this cute little kitty? He is made by The Mint Condition and if you want one of your very own, then be sure to visit Gacha Mania to play their gacha machine! Talking of gachas, my Cookie Necklace is by Spellbound and can be found in one of their in store gacha machines!

Here is a complete run down of the Doll Heads you can find in the fatpack from COCO Designs!

And while you are there, don’t forget to pick up the other piece of clothing that is set as a Group Gift which is free Kimono for your Ball Jointed Doll!

I adore how it comes with its own hands and feet with the Geta already attached, which makes it so easy to turn into a little Geisha Doll. The head I am wearing in this picture is also from the free box of doll heads and is called Kyoko!

Summer Breeze Makes Me Feel Fine

I have some great news for anyone who loves Pink Fuel skins! Mochi has created a brand new skin especially for new residents under 30 days old that is completely FREE! This is a great introduction to the world of skins to any new person in SL and whats also great is that if you really love the skin and you are over 30 days old, you can purchase them at a hugely discounted price of L$150 per tone!

The skin is called Renee and is available in four gorgeous tones. In the picture above I am wearing the Peach Tone. Inside the pack you get two skins, one with light brows and another with dark brows, plus a modifyable shape (I am wearing my own shape in the pictures) and some simple black eyeshadow so you can change up your look in an instant! Appliers are available seperately. Here you can see the other three tones included in the pack!

Also in the picture I am wearing the new SL Free’s & Offers group gift from MoiMoi who have generously set out a fatpack of HUD controlled Summer Bikini’s that also includes two fatpacks of the Summer Sandalet shoes that includes 10 different colours in each. One pack has silver detailing while the other has gold! Above you can see a few of the options for the Bikini. Below are some of the colours for the sandals. They come with their own feet that you will need to colour change to match the skin you are wearing. You will not need SLinks for these. The SL Frees & Offers Group is free to join!

The RGB’s I found for the feet to match the Pink Fuel Skins as best as I could are as follows. First I chose the lightest tone from the selection at the side of the HUD, then these are the numbers:

+ Crystal = Unfortunately the HUD does not go light enough
+ Peach = R255, G299, B224
+ Honey = R195, G162, B149
+ Espresso = R71, G52, B46

Hopefully these will be useful in getting you close to the desired shade if you want to match the skins in this post. You may need to tweek them depending on your lighting and if you are using windlight as it can affect the result.

Today’s Top 10 Hunts

HUNT SL battle of the sexes for himGood morning fabulous fans! Here’s a listing of what’s hot in the hunt world today: Tuesday, July 29 .

The Battle of the Sexes hunts continue to lead the pack this week, with the Aloha Fair (not really a hunt) holding down third place. Around the Grid In 80 Days, Aqua Splash, and Dark Fantasy hunts are still making a strong showing even weeks into their runs. People really seem to be enjoying their hunting!

Just a reminder, that these are the 10 most popular viewed hunts over the past 48 hours or so. We don’t know how many people actually start (or finish) any given hunt.

See you out on the hunt!

Hipster is, as Hipster does….whatever that means

Good evening Fabulouses!! Or morning, depending on where in the world you are :) Well, it is evening for me, and as I sit in my sweltering living room, I thought I would try to take my mind off of how much like a sauna my house will be with the heat wave my area is going to experience this week, by showing you my Hipster look.

CoffeeHouseHipster1

My look was completely inspired by the newest free, Reign group gift. The group was recently free to join for a short while, with the temptation of a free pair of shoes if they hit a certain number before closing up free entry. As a little thank you to all the new people who joined, as well to the current members who pushed, pulled and dragged everyone they knew to join, KenadeeCole, one of the owner’s/creator’s for Reign, sent out this cute little texture change Hello Hipster Necklace. You get a hud with 4 different colours to change the ‘Hello’ to, and I really like the simplicity of the design. If you hurry, and aren’t already in the group, I just checked, and, as of 10PM SLT (Monday), it’s still free to join.

CoffeeHouseHipster2

My next choice had to be glasses. No self-respecting hipster would be caught without their glasses on. While I have a few pairs in my inventory from days past when I always had glasses on, I wanted something new, and a little less sleek/modern. My favourite place to search, the Marketplace, did not let me down! The Mad Nerd Glasses, by Mad Mesh, were the first pair to pop up in my search, and lucky me, they were only L$9! Score! You get several different colours in both plain, and checkered versions, and even better, they are totally mod, so you can make them any colour you need.

Sticking with my accessories, I picked up these super adorable Hot and Cold Marshmallow earrings by Pink Acid at the current Candy Shop round, and for only L$50. Seriously, the expressions on their faces, so cute, though I do feel a little bad for the hot marshmallow, he doesn’t look like he is enjoying the heat at all. Kinda like me…LOL.

CoffeeHouseHipster3

I think, my favourite finds of my whole outfit though, are the * [BE]lieve – Black Urban Hipsta cat blazer with T-shirt, and * [BE]lieve – Hipster Studded Triangles Shorts. Both of these were finds on the Marketplace, with the Blazer- T-shirt combo setting me back a total of L$20, and the shorts were only L$10. How could I say no to either, especially when there is a cat print involved :P  Both pieces are mesh, coming in standard sizes, though I will warn you that I had to go up a size in the shorts, wearing a L instead of my usual M, but the L fits perfectly, and the M Blazer sits over the shorts without any part breaking through. I don’t know if the creator made these 2 to go together, but they work so well together, that it sure feels like it was meant to be. Love when that happens! Make sure you take a peek at all the other items from * [BE]lieve, as all their stuff is well priced, nothing over L$50, and great looking.

So, how do I look? Am I hipster enough? I am the type of person that I just wear what I like, not really paying attention to whether I fit into a certain group or not, and it works for me. Truthfully though, this look of mine is going to be saved and worn over and over, that is the sign of a great outfit. I hope you all agree :)

Until next time, TTFN *waves*
