Community pinning? A new pinboard and news

Standard

What´s this? an empty pinboard called Sandbox? Well guess what guys it´s yours, well kinda, i have a few rules for it, you can find them at the end of this blog post.

So basically this is a Community pinboard where every one of my followers can pin to, it´s basically there for us to share among us as a Community, be it Blog posts, Event Flyers, announcements, new releases, tutorials, links to stuff you like and enjoy in SL.

I tought it would be a nice interactive way to share likes of us all, to find new shops, blogs, events and products, it will be moderated of course, but guys we´re grown ups here, we know what to do or not, don´t we?

I´m now slowly adding around 600 people to it, slowly and carefully, if you want to be added right away please drop me an im.

1

Ok here are the basic rules:

1- SL related things, but external resources are welcomed also.

2- No IP infringement items, or SL´s TOS breaking (if you´re a creator or a blogger) if you have doubts if it´s infringing or not, avoid it please

3- Keep it PG, or in other words, cover your bits.

4- Don´t spam, cause you don´t want to be that kind of person to you?

5- Bloggers one pin per blog post, 3 blog posts per day.

6- Add the info on the pin, What, where, when whom is basic info we need, if you´re a creator link to you flickr or blog we wanna see more of you.

7- No bickering on comments, seriously just don´t.

I hate moderating stuff, but i will come down hard on anyone breaking these rules, without a warning and with the blaze of 100 suns, but i do it cause i love yall.

I reserve the right to expand on these if necessary.

That´s about it it´s time for some fun and some pinning.

My Funny Valentine

Standard

I wasn´t going to blog today since i´m not  a huge valentines person to be honest, at least i prefer just some good quality time on a daily basis with my boyfriend then a bunch of roses, (i don´t evn like roses much, give me tulips anytime), but i don´t like being  a grinch, and i see Valentine´s stuff all over SL today, also today is the day i joined Pinterest, you can find me here, and right away i created a bunch of Pinboards all red and pink.

The most viewed so far is my collection of Second Life Valentines Stuff called: SL Awesome Valentines Freebies/Group Gifts and Specials , where i pinned all the promotions, Sales events, group gifts, random freebies, or special releases for Valentines Day by SL creators, be patient with me as i add more pins during the day, as i find them either on groups or flickr, or that was told of by other bloggers or creators, at the moment it stands to almost 40 pins and it´s still growing, just make sure you check the comments for more, since not all pictures on flickr are sharable.

I´n the meanwhile i´ll leave here a silly picture of my decor adventures over the weekend featuring:

HappyMood – StandingRabbit M (a lovely gift from Sonya Marmurek)

{what next} – Newspaper Pile, Coastal Coffee Cup and  Laundry Room Sign.

Tres Blah – Pastry Mania – Mustache Cup and Cuppie Teacup.

LAQ Decor – Park Bench

Kitheres and Organica – Perdu Cafe set

Simply Xed – Daisies In a Light Blue Milk Jug

So everyone havea wonderful Valentine´s with your loved ones, be it your other half, your children or your friends and just let me know if you find anymore sales out there.

It´s colder by the sea

Standard

Indeed it is colder, after hardly any Fall at all, winter came in with full force, and even if i don´t share much about rl i do indeed live by the sea, not in such a tiny small house of course, i don´t think this one would survive one stormy nite around these parts. Thankfully in SL nothing get´s blown out by storms, unless you really want to, and have the script for it, even today as i type it´s another one of those days, a gray, windy, rainy one, where it´s never really enough day light to make you feel like the sun came up.

The best thing to do on days like these is to simply stay in, with a warm cup of tea (no milk, and 3 sugars please), with a blanket over your legs and a cat on your lap, whilst you happily shop in Sl, sadly i don´t get to do that today, I hope some of you do tho, cause there is nothing better to do on a stormy day.

I have been lacking in blogging this month, and this is why only today i get to show some of FaMESHed goodies, and some of Baffle! sale items, well besides being sick over the past week, I´ve also been busy With Unhinged, just a few days ago i did a blog post on the Official event blog with All merchants Booths for Unhinged, a blog post that already needs updating since creators have been adding stuff to the Booths, I´ve also been trying to support all live djs that have been busting their asses, by keeping the event going.

I promise soon to bring you guys some Unhinged goodies in the meanwhile you can follow the amazing work done by my fellow bloggers by checking the Official flickr group. I can´t say how amazed i am at all the talent i´ve seen latelly, I had never been involved in the organization of an event before, and i feel so proud of all the bloggers who signed up to help and those that didn´t sign up also, seriously guys you all deserve my respect.

Until tomorrow everyone and don´t let the stormy weather affect your mood.

List of direct slurls to the Vintage Fair shops

Red Riding

Standard

I´ve taken the opportunity that Fairy Tales in 2012 started yesterday and will remain open until July the 8th, to talk a little about Fairy Tales, and women´s roles in it, starting with Little Red Ridding Hood, as an example of the violence in it and of the Tale as a cautionary one.

When first published in print by Charles Perrault in Histoires ou contes du temps passé in 1697 this story was finally brought from oral tradition into paper, the red hood or cap are leftovers of the mentioning of blood in the previous versions, the ending in Perrault is also closer to the original one, one of death and violence, where all little girls who stray from paths suffer danger.

And here we have so many angles to the story a tale of warning told to children, that you shouldn´t tsray of the path and roads, and enter woods alone (one of the biggest symbols for the unknown and unfamiliar), that you shouldn´t talk to strangers, (in this case the big bad wolf, reminiscent of Loki in the dialogue and a trickster himself).

But many also view the story as a symbol of sexual awakening, and loss of virginity, while we see Little red as a little girl, a long time ago little girls where not little for long, while in the oldest versions of the tale make her a victim her story is later changed as a smart child, who tho reckless for venturing in the woods alone, was smart to see thru the wolf´s diguise, and call out for help, turning the whole idea of the trickster dialogue around, where the wolf is not telling lies to cove his identity, but simply answering her questions, and while doing so is tricked by he in outing himself, of all characters in fairy tales, at least female ones, Red gains more insight and depth as a character thru time, going from a small disobedient child who gets herself killed for being disobedient, to a smart little girl who is foolish but smart to call out for help, to modern times where it´s usually replaced by a strong woman capable to defend her ground, or to even an over sexualized hunter of wolfs.

For years we were told don´t step out of the path and be careful of strange men, today Red Riding can very much walk wherever she wishes, the wolfs are still out there of course, and violence still happens everyday, except women these days learn to be careful from other sources, while blood is still red.

All of this to bring you an amazing new event, where SL creators create their own vision of the symbols of these Fairy tales, and it´s refreshing to see that in a world as SL where women are the main shoppers, the more depicted characters are female ones, in ways that today are quite far from their original ones.

I also bring you something slightly different, it´s no secret i love landscaping and plants and so today i also bring you some mesh plants one is a group gift from the Booshies folks available at Booshtopia and those mystical creatures feed of them, the others are from Refined Wild that i have blogged before around these parts and are also mesh.

All these things in my inventory where dying to come out, and i could just picture a noble lady waiting by the sea. But what dos she wait for? A lover? A message? A treasure? I think we´ll see that soon, sinces o much lies out there in the waves, and who knows what the sea hides.

It´s that time of the month i do a tldr post

Standard

Last month was busy and unusual for me, busy because i covered a lot of events, and unusual because i spent most of the month in Goth looks.

After Fantasy Faire I must admit i was totally exhausted, not just from covering the event, but from basically living at the Faire sims for days, but exhausted and excited since i got to enjoy those wonderful builds for hours and hours.

After Fantasy Faire i officially covered several events, Keep calm and keep shopping, The Summer Beauty Festival and The World Goth Fair. By the way the Goth Fair donation has been made all transactions and receipts can be found here. I´m honestly out of words for how much i enjoyed being a part of this event, it has been probably my favourite so far this year, it had a flawless organization and openness, that no words can describe, and certainly not my clumsy english.

Soon coming from Axi and the gang will be also OopsKate, the link directs you to last years entry on the event, and i can´t wait to join in on Rupert´s birthday celebration, during next month, but i will bring you more info on that soon.

This month i blogged a Chic Management event officially for the first time, their two year birthday event CHIC², started yesterday and will be going on until the 24th.

Also blogging officially as a Ego Co. press member, is Mesh Around, I totally amazed with the exposure the hunt received, to be honest i never expected for people to go hunt like this, not that had little faith on the event and organization, but because it´s a new event, that is happening for the first time. And honestly the turn out is becoming legendary and hunters are iming shop owners tanking them for their generosity, i feel honestly grateful to be able to share this experience with everyone involved. I can´t wait now for Fluid to start.

That´s the usual round up of events for the next few days, as usual i´m also bringing you other events i stumble into, and that i usually cover, later on the week i´ll bring also a store opening and more pretty stuff from around the grid. So expect my usual peeks at COLLABOR88, The Dressing Room, The Dressing Room Blue,  and FaMESHed.

Also at the end my own vanity moment, when i was blogged by the lovely Geanna Lanley for her blog shotmesl, you can find her pics of me  here. I now feel extremely vain and proud, and it was wonderful to meet Geanna inworld and to be featured in her blog.

Rumour has it…

Standard

That the CHIC² is full of awesome, and the truth is this anniversary event for Chic Management´s second birthday is  certainly full of new wonderful goodies, this is a small preview of some of the things that will be available for the event that starts today at 4pm and last till the 24th of this month.

So after much musing i decided to use these pics on my first post for the event, I was amazed to the amount of furniture and decor items, some from a few of my favorite shops, so im starting with this lovely table from Fluke, with a wide array of poses and a very low land impact in spite of all the detail, and again mesh, I always smile when i see mesh furniture, I have a petite avatar and regular prims furniture does not lower on land impact count, when resized, like mesh does, also mesh are these gorgeous topiaries by Trompe Loeil, that come in a night and day versions and sort of set the mood for the whole pics.

New shops that i found at the event and quite liked it where also Chloe, Zanzo and Atro Patena I totally fell in love with Chloe to be honest, and had the chance to chat with the owner, that is how i found out their store is new and opening soon, so i can´t wait to see more from them the CHIC² earings and ring set are simply adorable and i´ll will most certainly blog them later in more detail. I also quite liked Zanzo and Atro Patena it´s nice to see new hair that is up and cute and mesh but in separates, allowing you to mix it with regular layer clothes.

Also worn here Maxi Gossamer ( with the usual eye for detail and awesome mesh work), Coldlogic that have I haven´t blogged much to be honest more because of distraction and lack of time then anything else, because their work in giving mesh texture and flow it´s truly amazing, and i´ll certainly bring you more Coldlogic latter in the week. And also YS & YS , and this is where i need a proper slap i don´t experiment with new skins enough, and i totally should since it´s well worth it steeping out of your usual skin.

But i also did other things this weekend, besides spending most of my hours at CHIC², i went to  Zaara´s 50% annual sale and loaded up on jewelry and jeans, because Zaara is always my first choice when it comes to layer system jeans.

and I also ran dow to slink to grab me some summer sandals for my mesh feet, I can´t always walk about barefooted, I started with two colours, let´s see how many i have when the summer ends. I´m really excited with their look, that is casual but not too casual you can´t wear with the a dress or jeans, and perfect for summer.

So here it is folks, now get ready, cause there is about 3 hours left until CHIC² opens their doors, and you can start by browsing the stores in the event at their website and be prepared to tp here when the clock strikes 4 pm.
