Events events events!! I LOVE THEM. :-p I don’t love Halloween that much, to be honest, but I do appreciate some Halloween themed items and events that are in Second Life.

Style - Would you like a cookie?

The Halloween Gacha event is open! It’s a small event but there are some really cute things to be found there! Like the Halloween Cookies poses and props from Status! I’m carrying the rare cookie box.

G Field has this super cute Vivian Halloween dress out in their store and…AND…it’s free!! I love free and I love this dress.

The Costume Ball is another Halloween themed event that has some really nice things, like the Christy hair from Wasabi Pills! It’s an adorable ponytail with a bow. The bow comes with a HUD so you can change the color.

Have fun doing your spooky shopping!

Paperwork Builds

William Weaver has been a Flickr contact of mine for a while. I’ll admit, I’m probably the worst Flickr contact ever because I kinda suck at commenting, but I do try to keep up as best I can. He’s kind enough to favorite some of my pictures on occasion, and I always try to keep up with those who are nice enough to like what I do.

Last night I was doing my last “web round” before bed and noticed on Flickr that he had a link to his marketplace store – Paperwork. AND he had some really cool photo skyboxes! Not only are they cool, but they’re FREE. I got them all and today got to play with them.

These shots are totally raw except for cropping, rounding the corners [don’t sue me, Apple], and adding my signature. The lighting is all done within SL with the help of the builds.

Style - Paperwork Builds-2

Style - Paperwork Builds-1

My computer is not the best or anything, but as you can see, the skyboxes make it really easy to take some great shots! And it’s really funny because the builds themselves, just in the regular light, don’t look like much of anything really. But if you download the Windlight setting William has offered on the marketplace pages, all you have to do is use that setting, turn on shadows and local lights, and boom! Instapretty! On that last shot, I used the mirror water, put the build just under the water, and used one of the Windlight settings provided in Firestorm. I think it turned out nicely!

Check out Paperwork and get your free cool builds today!

Sometimes you just don’t know.

There are some days when I cannot figure out which gorgeous outfit I want to wear first. Then there are other days when I can’t figure out a single thing to wear! Today is one of those days, but luckily with new releases from BOOM and some old favorite standbys, I can dance around the house and just forget about the world. And that’s all you get for today, because my mind is in a far off place. ♥

I ♥ Pink

I’ll admit it. I’m in love. Just the very sight of my love makes me go soft and fuzzy hearted. I want to cuddle up with my love and just sit in bliss. I look forward to Valentine’s Day because it means I’m surrounded in my love. I’m talking about the color pink, of course. What did you think I meant?

Style - I ♥ Pink!

If you haven’t been to the I ♥ Originals fair yet, then you really really need to go! You can pick up this oh-so-sweet Twiggy dress from one of my favorite stores, Ingenue. This color is called – what else? – Valentine! But there are other colors as well, if pink isn’t your thing. [Ingenue at the fair]

Also at the fair, I picked up this gorgeous Kennedy necklace in pink by Caroline’s Jewelry. It’s part of a really inexpensive set that includes earrings, brooch, and ring as well. I love Caroline’s so much. [Caroline’s at the fair]

If you head on over to G Field, there’s a little hunt going on! Six items are free, such as this Heart Bag I’m carrying. There’s one in red, too! The Heart Flats are in the hunt, but are $30L, and there are two pairs to find. There are also two items for $50L each in the hunt, and honey, let me tell you. You WANT to find them. But if you’re busy, you can buy all 10 hunt items for $200L at the front of the store. Thank you, Cerberus!!

I have to go roll around in more pink goodness now. God, I love Valentine’s Day.

Today’s Gaze – Golden Goodies

I’m not always a huge fan of gold. But give me some pretties for free or cheap, and I’ll change my mind pretty darn quick!

Review - Today's Gaze - Golden Goodies

I’m simply in love with the new Delphines from much loved Shiny Things! If you’re a member of the subscriber group, head to the store and pick up your free gold Delphines. And check out the other new shoes, too! Oh Shiny Things, thank you for coming back to us.

I showed newness from Jane on Friday, but what I didn’t mention is that there are a bunch of free Intrinsic Tanks for the taking! I have a great love of basic tanks, as I’m sure lots of us do, so getting these for free is just amazing!

At fri.day, there’s a little corner with some discounted products, and I was able to score a 24.7 pack of the Short Cardis for less than $300L! You get 12 colors and there are options for shorter sleeves [like I’m wearing], long sleeves, and some different cuff options. Wonderful! Not discounted at fri.day, but still pretty inexpensive, I also picked up these Low.Rise jeans in the light wash.

You’ve probably heard of the 10-10-10 sale that’s going on, but if you haven’t, check out Callie Cline’s blogpost on it. I was able to get this adorable Padma updo by hair machine Truth for just $110L. Oh, did I mention it’s a FATPACK for that price? Oh yeah, you need it.

And one of my favorite finds at the Jewelry Fair, I got this I Love Autumn jewelry set from Primagine for less than $100L. Cute cute cute!

Okay, I know, I got long winded. Go shopping now!!

Today’s Gaze – Boho Bright

I’m always a fan of stumbling into new-to-me stores. Today I was trying to find the landmark to a store when another store name caught my eye – BoHo HoBo. That sounds like just my kind of store, so I skipped over and was so so happy that I did!

[All SLurls are at the bottom if you don’t feel like reading!]

Review - Today's Gaze - Boho Bright

Look at this simply adorable skirt! It’s called Banjara and I’m just in love with its bright colors and patterns! Is it the best quality skirt on the grid? No, not at all, but it’s pretty darn good! It reminds me of something you might make yourself, which I just love. Like almost everything at BoHo HoBo, it’s inexpensive and guess what? All proceeds from the store go to the Central Asian Institute!

The Central Asian Institute is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization with the mission to promote and support community-based education, especially for girls, in remote regions of Pakistan and Afghanistan.

Pretty clothes for a worthy cause. Awesome. 🙂

While looking for jewelry to wear with this outfit, I was reminded of Yak & Yeti. They’re not a super well known store, but they do some nice Indian inspired work. And the BEST part? It’s all free. I know! I’m not sure why or how they manage that, but I’m glad that they do. I’m wearing the Bollywood jewelry set in silver & topaz. It’s so cute! I’m also wearing the Filigree Tibetian Anklet from there. It’s not the most exquisite jewelry around, but it’s free and it’s lovely, so you can’t ask for much more than that!

I think it’s time to go dance in the sand to watch my pretty skirt swoosh around!

Today’s Gaze – I Don’t Like Your Girlfriend!

I was wandering around Crush Row last night [truly one of my favorite shopping areas in SL. It’s gorgeous.] and stumbled into Von Ducky. This t-shirt caught my eye and made me laugh, and so… Today’s Gaze was born.

Now is this shirt the highest quality? Nah. You can see the hems aren’t exactly awesome. But it’s so cute, I don’t mind.

Underneath I put on a green shrug & gloves that I picked up from Torridwear I don’t even know HOW long ago. They’ve been in my inventory pretty much since I rezzed, I think. Because the shrugs are on the shirt layer, it makes them PERFECT for putting underneath t-shirts for a layered look. I tinted the green darker that it originally is. I wasn’t sure if you could still get them, but go backstage at Torrid’s store. They’re still there, and you get 6 colors for just $20L. It’s a hell of a deal.

My Garage jeans from League and my PornStar Hi-Tops from Urban Bomb Unit are staples in my inventory. In fact, if clothing in SL wore out ever, these would be falling apart because I wear them so often. League really is my favorite place for jeans, even if they are a little pricier than most places.

Ryker Beck of Exodi has been teasing us on Plurk [along with bad girl Jori Watler!] with glimpses of her new Sienna skin. Yesterday she generously gave her VIP group a preview of Sienna. Look at my face, it is gorgeous!! The whole skin is marvelous, and this is a first for me because I never have managed to look good in any of the Exodi skins before. It always made me sad to see Sophia in them because she looked soooo good and I never did. But Sienna…wow. I love it! I can’t wait for them to be released. The Exodi group is a pay group [$250L], but Ryker spoils us, so it’s worth it. I’m wearing her Zbilja Spirit eyes in Crystal Blue, which were also a group gift.

And to tie it all up, I’m wearing [still] the gorgeous Green II hair in Beach Blond from Maitreya and the Delicious Lollipop rings & bangles from SyDS, one of my favorite fun ring shops. My poses are from Pffiou! which is currently not open while my favorite French girl takes a bit of an SL break.

Oh, and for some reason, the shirt reminded me of this song, which is now embedded in my head. :-p
