More About Me...

I've been around Second Life for a few years now - did the obligatory club scene, owned my own club. That didn't last too long. SL to me is now about content creation and fashion. I love to create (and learn) & to search for the most awesome creations in Second Life. I'll be opening my store, fucifino, soon and I will be showcasing my new creations here as well as all those awesome finds that I come across in my SL travels.

Another Side of me: Land Owner

I'm co-owner of Belle Island Estates. We offer land for rent or sale, residential or commercial. Currently offer 4096 lots for sale or rent. If you want something smaller, bigger, etc, we'll work with you to customize how you want your property.

So Many Styles...Group Gift

A quickie post about So Many Styles new group gift.  I was in the mood for pastels...must be the beautiful weather or maybe how pastels look on my freshly tanned RL skin :-) 

Outfit: So Many Styles, Group gift (activate group tag and touch the ad for the gift)
Hair: D!va, Tomomi (Ruby)
Skin: Tuli, Sayuri

I ❤ Towa

Every item I have from Towa, I love, and these two group gifts are no exception.  Maybe I love them more...hmmm...that might just be the case :-)

I feel like a fairy in this Rainy drop dress.

This Green Wedding Dress is simply one of the most beautiful dresses I've seen.  I think if I owned this in RL, I would wear it all the time....well, maybe just inside my house - don't want people thinking I'm the crazy lady on the street. ;-)

Group Gift Time vol. 1

I've accumulated a lot of stuff this inventory creeped back above 40,000 items. This is my imaginary limit I have set for myself.  I'm thinking I might just increased that limit...maybe to 45,000 items...too many cute things that I just must have :) are some of my favorite group gifts that I've picked up the past couple weeks. I can't say for sure if they are still there or not - SL has not liked me today going to places not my home. I think I probably need to clear cache, but I am so not looking forward to having my inventory load up.  20 minutes of being in ultra low lag location with nothing to do...not in the mood for that yet.

Hooray! It's 50L Friday!

I love Friday to begin with, I mean, it's Friday.  But it's made better because of 50L Fridays.  I didn't buy all that much today (I went on a hair shopping spree earlier this week - gotta budget myself LOL).

I am loving that there are some really nice jean skirts out there. I've picked up a few of them the past couple weeks. I love the torn edge on Doppelganger Inc.'s 50L Friday offering. I love this tank by So Many Styles. The ribbon in the center looks like it a prim ribbon but it's not. Love that!

My hair is one of the new ones I got on my shopping spree. It's from lamb.

I now have to unpack the wondrous stuff I got from The Dressing Room's new collection! I'll be posting that either tonight or tomorrow.

When marimba rhythms start to play
Dance with me, make me sway
Like a lazy ocean hugs the shore
Hold me close, sway me more

I finally got around to blogging about the beautiful Sway Dresses from Sand Shack Surf Co.  This dress reminded me of the song Sway by Michael Buble (so yummy and romantic).  I love the dainty femininity to this dress and paired with Amacci's Lil Hair in Dark Copper, I feel like an Irish Girl running in the hills.  The warm weather for me is all about the beautiful sundresses and the wind in my hair...I better get out my sunscreen so I don't mar this beautiful skin!

Look #006

I can't concentrate on writing when I watch a television show that I am invested I am sure once all the season finales are over and there's nothing on TV, I'll be able to come up with something a little better.

I have a folder of LM's that I try to visit once a month. It's very hard to keep track of all the cool places in SL when they only give you 25 groups. My groups are totally full save one group that I rotate when I need to join another group for a wonderful gift.  I just wish that I could stay in all these groups...thank goodness for the subscribe o matics and others like them.    But then SL doesn't always give me my messages either from these SOM's.  Anyway......I decided to go see what was new at mnk shop.  So happy I did! I love this dress that was on their new release board.  So, so pretty!  There are so many options with this outfit.  I took a picture of what they showed.

While there I saw that they had a cute skirt in the lucky board...but after being there for 30 minutes without getting it, I just took a picture and a reminder to try to go back for it again :)  Here's a picture for you....and I'm sure you'll agree that it's super cute!

Dress: mnk*shop, fleurir (light blue) *nikukyu* (not free)
Skin: Eternity, Rose Princess (rose pink special) (Group Gift - check notices)

Necklace: Mustang Trading Post, Double O Seven (old hunt gift)


I've got Photoshop back!  When my desktop decided to drink my son's juice, I was devastated because all my awesome programs were on there.  I've been trying to find them but things have been misplaced blah blah blah.  You know when you purchase blank CD's on one of those spindle's?  Well I have about 5 of them full of CD's and I decided to look thru them....and guess what I found???  My Photoshop disc!  YAY!   Now, maybe I can do some fun things with my pictures again!

Different Shades of Femininity

Furniture Finds #001

One day, I just started snapping up everything on my land, feeling the compulsive need for a change, and by the time I was done, there was nothing left on my land.  I double checked the prims on my land - 0 prims.  At that point, I had absolutely no idea what to do.  So, I did what I normally do when I require some inspiration - I shop!  I found some real cute pieces.  So here we roll...

So I found this lovely little Tea House from Molto Bene.  Too small for my house but just the right size as an addition to a yet to be found house. I'm imagining lots of flowers and comfy seating, totally reminds me of my sun porch in RL.  This was a Project Themeory item.  I <3 Project Themeory!

This lovely table is from The Loft, called Flee Market Finds. I picked this up on 50L Fridays.  It's not copy, so I bought a couple because you never know :)

The moment I saw this /artilleri/ Orlando bar available as a 50L Friday item last week, I braved the lag to have it for my own!  I think I want to have a Fifties style skybox that I can retreat to....hmmm.

Turnip's Tea Table Shelf in Maple (Fifty Linden Friday Special) was a purchase that I didn't know what I was going to do with it....yet, but I knew I would have a use for it someday.  It's very shabby chic/cottage like, probably use it as a planting bench (can you tell I spent the weekend outside, gardening?)

Last up is this sun chair and umbrella set from Republica, a Project Themeory item.  The chair has a few cool poses in it - always a plus.  After all that shopping this weekend, I needed to chill and nothing better to help that along than a nice Long Island Iced Tea (or two or three).  I've got to confess that I indulged a little too much......

What a perfect way to end a great week!  I'll catch you later!

Fifty Linden Friday Part 1

Just going to blog about the clothing I bought right now.  I'll write another post for the furnishings (since I create furniture myself, I have a special place in my heart for it).

First off, Tiny Bird never disappoints with their 50L Friday offerings.  The hairs are so cute and feminine. And this time around, a lovely dress with pockets, that now has me on the search for a hands in my pockets type of pose (well, it's added to my ever-growing list of places I've got to check out.  I need to start checking places off that list soon before it becomes a book LOL).

Next up is the very casual outfit from Reek.  I love the color blue so that's in its favor.  Also, the shoes are awesome!  Love that they have different colors for the stripes.  I will be using these sandals and socks through out the summer months.  I had to go with some type of ponytail and this is one of my all time favorites from Magika.

And my final stop (for clothes, that is) was Sand Shack Surf Co.  Each week they are part of 50L Friday's, I am finding more and more I like there.  This week, my hands were full with my purchases...but I'll just show you the 50L item :)  This gray striped sweater seems perfect for a spring night...maybe by a fire...or maybe at the beach after a long day of surfing...  Boy, as I write this, I so want to start looking into a RL vacation somewhere!

Okay, back to the post.  I've paired the sweater with a pair of Surf Co. jeans I picked up today while waiting for the FLF item to rez.  Do the shop owners do that on purpose?  LOL.

One more pic...It's not me, but what was in front of me while I was waiting for stuff to rez at Tiny Bird.  Seriously?  WTF!?!  I know SL is not real but how the heck is this a trend now?  It's crap!  (hehehe)  Cover your ass!

Dress: Tiny Bird - St Augustine Dress - Champagne (50L Friday item)
Hair: Tiny Bird - Postcards from Italy - Brown (50L Friday item - also in a red)

Fifty Linden Fridays & Project Themeory Are Almost Here!

These two events give me something to look forward to in SL!  I normally buy everything (except for jewelry - it has to be totally amazing for me to buy that).  I'm trying to find out what the theme is this weekend for Project Themeory. Skins for 75L perhaps?  *hehehe*   A girl can dream, can't she?  So look for my buys tomorrow and this weekend!  Heck, maybe I'll wake up in the middle of the night to get the 50L Friday items. LOL!

JILL moved their shop to a new location and in honor of that put out a new group gift - a light and airy, blue baby doll tank that should be worn when the sky is bright blue and free of clouds.

About Me

I've been around Second Life for a few years now - did the obligatory club scene, owned my own club. That didn't last too long. SL to me is now about content creation and fashion. I love to create (and learn) & to search for the most awesome creations in Second Life. I'll be re-opening my store, Trinity, soon and I will be showcasing my new creations here as well as all those awesome finds that I come across in my SL travels.

About my Blog: It's always a work in progress. I love to play with things so as I find something that I might like on my blog, I will play with it - live.  My Link Love and Store Love sections are always growing.  I have SO many to add, but I find shopping keeps dragging me away from maintenance of any kind (of my blog or my inventory). :-)

I'm just showing you items that I find on SL that are interesting to me.  If you have suggestions of stuff that I would like, please let me know!  I love to check out new (to me) places.  Shoot me a notecard in world or just post a comment.

Please Excuse My Mess

I so need a new look for my blog. I'm probably going to spend hours getting it just right, scouring all the templates. So, please excuse my mess as I try out the various templates.


A Return of Sorts... blogging. I haven't blogged for SL in ages! Certain things take up your time (my son, deal shopping in SL and RL, and Facebook). Facebook has taken up way too much of my time. I'm a sucker for a good game (yes, you'll find me on Farmville and MyTown) and my friends seem to know this and send invites to other games and of course, I'll join for them.

Well, I've decided to severely curtail my game playing on Facebook and now I've got all this time on my hands. I started toying around re-opening my store again, among other things, and thought that blogging would be a good venue for advertising my stuff. I also love to read the SL Fashion blogs. I am a sucker for it!!! I have a lot to say about Fashion and am in need of a creative outlet so here I am...back to the blogger universe.

So I hope you tag along with me as I explore SL's fashion (on a budget), my own creations and the ever present WTF! moments in SL and beyond. :-)
