The Arcade is pinned

Standard

Here it is to start the day we have The Arcade that opens at midnite and is already pinned, i also added the slurl to each machine pin, they were taken from The Arcade´s shopping guide, but let me know if i switched my copypasting and it will be fixed as soon as possible.

I am not sure i will be able to pin Lazy Sunday early tomorrow morning due to holiday/family amazing times, but i will try to do my best to have both Lazy Sunday and FaMESHed out as soon as possible.

Have a great weekend everyone and see you all soon with more news and events.

I´m a huge Oz fan and i knew just what to do when i saw these is also a great way to show the last few days and how hectic they have been. So today i bring you some wearables and also some items fo decor, first this gorgeous and huge set from HANDverk that shows a few iconic relics of the amazing Oz universe created by L. Frank Baum, some of the items are decor but a lot also come in wearable versions, and are only avaible at The Arcade.

Another new item is this gorgeous and classic pencil skirt from The Secret Store in this months edition of FaMESHed, the top is one of my favourite basic pieces from Geometry, and the hair is my usual first choice when i´m looking for something windy and is a Alice Project creation.

How does pinning work?

Standard

Well you all know by now i got myself a Pinterest account and have been pinning like mad since Valentines, since i found it was the perfect place to organize all the Valentine´s promotions and sales going around SL that day, since then i also started pinning events happening, mostly cause it´s easier for me as a shopper to have all the things in one place with a good easy to see presentation.

So i organize my pinning by event and when the event is complete i add an additional pin with date, when a new edition opens all i have to id simply add to that board, rinse and repeat, so if you look at my Pinterest you will see several boards in chronological order, the more recent ones are The Arcade, The Challenge, Zodiac, followed by events that have already started on the date seen as the last pin on it.

You will also see i have another board at top and that one is for random stuff i find around related to my current favourite theme which is spring at the moment. and theses will probably be seasonal.

Did you guys know you can pin directly from the Second Life marketplace? Why not make a whishlist pinboard so your friends can see what you would love have?

I hope everyone has a great start of the week with lots of pinning and shopping.

Words are all i have

Standard

Again i say like so many times before that i´m not much of a shoe person, be it RL or SL i simply don´t get most women and quite a few men´s fascination about footwear, i usually go for comfy in RL and barefooted whenever possible, so when new feet come out i usually do check those.

A few days ago Gos decided to divide the shop in a way that would allow better branding and market segmentation, so Gos Boutique was born, not only catering just for women, but releasing over this weekend quite a few new models of shoes, and two bare feet versions in mesh (i´m wearing the flat version here) and a new revolutionary tinting system, well every woman just sighs and sometimes cringes when tinting is mentioned , i know i´ve spent quite a few hours messing with huds to get a reasonable match, i don´t even require a perfect match, just reasonable, and if you´re blogging it becomes tiring with every skin change, and trust me i do a lot of those, means a few more wasted minutes on feet tinting, time i could be using to enjoy SL.

And what´s so different from the these feet you may ask? Well to start the tinting database Gos offers already includes more than half of the grids skin makers, even better you can add online the suggestion for more skin creators to add to the database. My regular Mynerva wasn´t available, but a simple manual match was pretty fast to do, with pretty good results, and to know i won´t have to stress over about the other 80% skins in my inventory, makes these godsend to a blogger.

So i would totally classify these has my best buy so far this year because i also found them cheap, so cheap i have to go back to grab the arched version, and i enjoyed the system so much i even bought a pair of sandals, and am now waiting for more releases that will fit these, specially summer sandals. So be prepared to see them around a lot.

I also dropped by at Maitreya this weekend since they just releases a bunch of new goodies, some seasonal but mostly a new Nightlife collection all worth checking out, this was just one of my favourites in pretty purplish tones, another shop i visited over weekend was Dura not a regular shop for me but i´m loving their short hairs.

And cause i´m slowly learning how to take pics of shoes, i dusted up some Flowey poses i had in my inventory for ages waiting to be used, i sometimes do that keep things about until i find the perfect timming  and mood for them.

As for the title and general mood of today´s blog post it´s pretty much appropriate to how we deal with words and how much effect they have in our lives, something i´ve been thinking a lot about recently.

In the meanwhile enjoy your weekend everyone, happy shoe shopping and don´t forget to check my other blog post over at Hottie Cooterati from earlier here. Just take it easy today cause a new week is coming.

Quiet as a dormouse

Standard

Indeed i am, and almost asleep has the little one in Alice in Wonderland, But this little dormouse, yes i´m quite small in general with my SL height to match my RL and i´m always sleepy due to insomnia, i´ve also been sick which is delaying my other big project. This being part one of it.

When i saw the preview on flickr of this two HANDverk sets, one with the furniture and one with the food, i knew i had to have them, first i love SL food and second i love Alice in Wonderland, so my idea was to get five different looks inspired on the five different characters in this crazy tea party.

And my first pick is was the little sleepy dormouse, for which i had to watch a crazy amount of youtube videos with adorable little dormouses snoring and being overall adorable, oh the sacrifices i will do for reasearch, to make my blog posts accurate.

So i decide i was going for cute, and basically it involved my favourite colour which is purple and a little bit of pink, with some new earmuffs, owl themed, my favourite of all themes as usual, (this little dormouse laughs in the face of danger, by sporting adorable owl earmuffs). I also added a little sparkle with my silver glitter in a tiny jar, another one of my favourites from The Arcade, these super cute and funny necklaces by PIDIDDLE, the sweater i got from Beetlebones at one of the best Hunts on the grid that came back again this year, The with Love Hunt (remind me please to finish it).

Something else that is new currently are these gorgeous Sugarskull from lassitude&ennui available only at Unhinged, a shop that just turned 7 years old and already inspired a blogger challenge about the oldest, newest and most favourite item from there, I´m gonna classify these boots as the newest i have from there, and bring out the oldest and the favourite later.

Another thing i have to mention is the pose i´m using on this first picture, It´s from aDORKable and the first one of a set of 25 poses left daily at the shop as a gift, last year i missed them all, but bougth the full pack after Xmas, and since i am horrible at reminding myself of Advent Calendars in SL, i´ll probably ended up missing a few more this year, hopefully they will be available after the season is done.

That´s all for today folks, i´ll catch all later, in the meanwhile you can see me nod off and murmur something about treacle.

ETA: I almost forgot i dressed up as a  Sky Huntress over at the Hottie Cooterati blog the other day for those who might have missed it.
