Moving To Her Own Beat (Glam Affair & The Secret Store for Arcade)

Moving To Her Own Beat (Glam Affair & The Secret Store for Arcade)

Moving To Her Own Beat (Glam Affair & The Secret Store for Arcade)

Sooo two of my favorite shops ever! Have amazing items for the Arcade and I wouldn’t have expected anyless from them! First is Candy from Glam Affair for Arcade (Starts the 1st! TOMORROWWW) I adore this skin, I’m really picky about the lip textures on skins and these lips are ready for smoochin’ lol but really the lip texture is really nice, Candy will be in 2 skin tons America and Europa in a variety of make ups for both, you can view them all on the Arcade Shopping Guide. Next is this awesome boombox from The Secret Store, not gonna lie I felt like a pure gangstAr carrying this around, I was too cool for school ya’ll lol. You can also view the colors and types for the boombox on the Arcade Shopping Guide!

I’m so excited for this round of Arcade, I can’t believe it’s been a year now! Arcade has to be breaking some kind of SL records, I’ve never seen people so excited to spend money (I being one of them) I’m basically throwing my wallet at the computer and praying I can make something back at yard sales LOL.

Happy Shopping! If you’ll be getting your arcade game play on, save my a spot, or I’ll be pushing through anyway! GOTTA GET MAH TRINKETS!

Camo Crew (What Next for Arcade)

Snapshot_121edit

Howdy ya’ll,

Where do I start with this post lol.

Well simply…

I received the “What Next” item for arcade…

I saw it…

Screamed a little from excitement…

Opened it…

Drove it for hours

Talked to Mister who gave me an idea on how I should blog it (Thank you sir)

We ran with it

Grabbed SunAnn

Set up Scenery and poses

Took a photo

This is the product of that!

Now on a more serious note:

This golf cart is simply amazing, it’s a golf cart HUD rezzer!…so if you get multiple patterns all can rez from ONE HUD!!! keeping down that inventory ya’ll!!, so when you go to arcade this Sunday you’ll receive a HUD (DO NOT OPEN THE HUD) that will rez your cart! I know this may be confusing so I’m going to break this down as much as I can so that it may help some of you when you get to arcade or yardsales and youre unsure how it works.

OK so when you play the What Next machine you will get your hud and your pattern…. and like I stated above the HUD has the ability to rez your golf cart that’s the simple part. Now I know you are probably wondering HOW will you be able to sell your duplicates? or buy from a yard sale? When you are selling or purchasing from yard sales you should be given the hud NOT the cart itself, please please please make sure you are buying the HUD! If you see a stand alone cart for sale I’d let the seller know that in order for it to work properly the HUD needs to be traded. There’s no way purchasing the cart alone will help you. THIS IS IMPORTANT! Also sellers and traders, try to include the instructions so the next person is not confused, I hope this helps!

I really hope this helps someone this weekend because I know I’ll be yard sale surfing and also hosting a yard sale myself and when we see something we want or something for sale we usually do it quick fast and in a hurry because you want to make sure you get the exact one you want. Just be careful, no one likes wasted L! Now just on the carts but things in general, I’ve seen empty boxes for sale, one part of an item and not the other…. etc. Mistakes happen I just hope you keep every last L you can so none goes wasted during a time like Arcade we already spend quite enough!

You can view all the possible colors here on Winter’s flickr! I swear once I find my favorite “What Next” item they just make something even better and more amazing.

Updos & Button Downs

Updos & Button Ups

Helllooo,

I wanted to do another double look, I’m kind of enjoying this, though Dolce is in need of some help. It’s funny how something gets released and becomes a MUST have for the rest of your SLife, a must have for me are 2 things, ‘Slink’ feet and ‘Slink’ hands, I know there are people out there without them, that may be because you have never tried them to see the difference! I never realized just how badly system hands look! Dolce doesn’t have mesh hands (or feet) yet, I’ll surely be getting those in the near future for her. Her hands are HUGE! and her ankles in system shoes… don’t get me started, I always have to cut her off at her feet! Waist up is the way to go for my poor lil alt, she could also use a new skin, but the main ”must haves’ are hands and feet so I’ll get around to skin later.

I think mesh body parts (mainly hands and feet) have really and truly revolutionized the Second Life avatar. When I think back to when I first started SL (2007), since then about every 6 months to a year, SOMETHING has been new that made me think “THAT’S GENIUS!” I remember when voice was new (THAT was fun) it was back in the days when I basically lived sandbox to sandbox and you’d hear everyone’s conversation and snicker to yourself, then freaked because you realized your voice was on as well…oh and sculpties! I remember thinking they were a godsend, now a days I wouldn’t dare brave the good ole sculptie, may they R.I.P. as far as my clothing is concerned. The latest that I’m loving on are the SL materials, I’m blown AWAY by some of the items I’ve seen, there is a flickr group for material ready products you can check out! I love oogling through this group in my spare time. Are there any material ready eyes yet? is that possible? I don’t see why not ….whenever they become available sign me up!

On the other hand….. I know lots of residents who just don’t care for ‘change’ in SL and hey to each his own! There is one item that I don’t think I could ever adjust to, that being mesh heads (not on a daily basis, I would wear one for a photo perhaps), I like to change my shape up from time to time and I love changing my skins, though I’m quite loyal to Glam Affair skins on Harper, I still get to change often since Aida is always releasing something new! With a mesh head I don’t like that I’d look EXACTLY like everyone else with the same head (it’s hard enough for your avatar to stand out). Now there ARE perks to having a mesh head with taking photos, buuuuut for the time being I shall pass. There ARE custom mesh heads out there, but they cost so much I don’t think I’d ever be able to purchase one without dying a little on the inside.

I feel like I talked way too much, but after all of that jibber jabber… remember to buy all things!

Happy Shopping!

Concrete Jungle (42 Second Life Groups Challenge)

Concrete Jungle

Heyhey,

I haven’t blogged in a lil bit, been sickly in RL….fun timesssss, but since my third nap for today didn’t happen I figured it was time to post. 😛

  • Have you reached the 42 group limit? Yes, I usually have to leave one to accept new group invites.
  • Do you do a lot of group hopping to keep up with all the groups you want to stay a part of? No really, but I do as Berry mentioned in her answer, I just add my alt to a group that I want to stay updated on but don’t have the room to do so.
  • What makes you want to join a group? My love for the store…. if i love the items and shop there often I usually go ahead and join their VIP group for discounts, gifts, etc.
  • A lot of store VIP groups have a group fee which you have to pay to join. How do you feel about paying group fees? Weeeeelllll, I understand WHY groups have fees, one good reason is to keep the spam out, I hate being in a group and my chat is constantly opening with some slurl to free shoes or free T-shirts or something of the sort. I am in quite a few groups that have a fee, I will say it’s a bit bothersome when a group WAS free then they added a fee after the fact and didn’t alert it’s members, so I’ll leave it to make a space for a group like…. a blogger group for an event which is only temporary only to go to add the group back and have to pay L. <.<
  • Name a few groups that you are a part of that you feel everyone should look into joining and share your reasons behind that.
  • –> Lofty Spaces this is the VIP group for “The Loft” I love love love the furniture there, there’s always group discounts on just about everything in the main store. This is one group I’ll never leave.
  • –> *COCO* Update Group is probably one of the most generous groups to be in. They have a line of group gifts to pick up at this slurl, and the group is FREE to join! (I left this as Berry answered it bc this is definitely a MUST group to be in)
  • –> Glam Affair Updates there is a very small fee to join this group 30L, there’s tons of gifts throughout the year, especially during the holidays! Who can say no to free skin?!
  • –> Gos Boutique Group I agree with this group as well! There are lots of group gifts and discounts, and the quality of the gifts are amazing, it’s rare to find that.

And All That Jazz… (NEW @ Collabor88)

And All That Jazz...

Happy Collabor88 dayyyy, I won’t do too much jabber I think I’m too excited to run my mouth any today but I wanted to show you some collabor88 goodies you might not have been able to go see yet!

From this look my favorite item has to be this secret store dress I’m in, I love love love it! It comes in a tons of colors do if cream isn’t your thing, never fear. Maylee did an awesome job with modernizing the 20s with this dress. it’s got sparkle, it’s got class, and it has a really nice open back design. This dress is a must for all you dress lovers out there like myself.

This is hands down the best Collabor88 EVER! You have a whole month no excuses on missing out on these great items! Happy Shopping! ♥

No Cat’s Cool As This Kitty Cat (C88 August Preview)

A Cool Cat In Town

Collabor88 will open it’s doors tomorrow and celebrate it’s 2nd birthday! So funny how quickly time passes by. The theme will be 1920s era “Razzle Dazzle” and I am all about vintage! Just like the first Collabor88 birthday all designers were asked back to celebrate, except this time there is even a special build just for this occasion! I saw a sneak peek on flickr and let me tell you.. it looks damn good. I have to say Collabor88 is my favorite event, I can skip out or take my time getting to lots of events, but never C88. Even back when Collabor88 was in it’s early stages I was always there on the 8th clicking like a mad woman to get in fight lag, lose my lindens and ask some random stranger to pay me 1L that I paid back just to correct my L balance, noob walking and rolling over strangers, paying 88L like 3 times for the same item because it was cheap I didn’t care about the failed delivery I wanted it nowww… ahhh the good times. Collabor88 still fills up every month and with good reason, it’s worth all the SL technical difficulties. I want to wish a very happy second birthday to Collabor88, may there be many many many more. ♥

Also I want to add how much I adore this Clawtooth hair, I missed Clawtooth in C88 last month, but this hair was totally worth the wait, plus he spoiled us with hair fair goodies so I can’t whine. Bubbles was definitely in his element when he made this hair. ♥

P.S. Lots of items this round are reminding me of The  Great Gatsby film from this year so I decided to share a song from the soundtrack that seemed to go with the photo.
