roll out those days…

roll out those days

Roll out those lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer
Those days of soda and pretzels and beer
Roll out those lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer
Dust off the sun and moon and sing a song of cheer

You’ll wish that summer could always be here

_

I was talking today with colleagues at work, and we were chatting about how it seems to have been cold for such a long time this winter, and how we wish the warmer weather would hurry up and get here! When I got home and logged on I was thinking about a post to do, and when I tried on this gorgeous outfit from Valentina E, it reminded me of summer, not so much as in the immortal words of Nat King Cole that I have quoted here…’soda and pretzels and beer’ but of seashores and ice cream! But, we all have those little things we think about when we think about summer, so I felt the song fitted perfectly!

The outfit in question is the Valentine E Ines outfit. This is a gacha set and it is exclusive now in the brand new round of PocketGacha which started yesterday. The outfit includes the tee shirt, skirt and hat in three different colours, and there is also a blazer with tee shirt too. There are 12 common and three rare items to collect. Also from this PocketGacha round are my shoes. These are the Hiroko Heels, one of two pairs of shoes on offer from Breathe. There are lots of colours to collect and if you are lucky enough to get the rare packs, they include all the colours changeable via a HUD. If you don’t know how PocketGacha works you can read all about on the website HERE.

The pose I’ve used is from Image Essentials. This is from the Flirty pack. There are 5 poses plus mirrors in the pack and each one is Bento enabled. I’m using #5. The Flirty pack is availabe right now at the current round of Twe12ve which runs until 28th February.

Oh my I am so late getting this post out, I promised it would be out before midnight SLT too! Oh well I’m only about 4 hours late and there are still goodies to be had! Even Monthly Midnight Madness weekend can’t stop little rl emergencies we have to deal with!

So, it’s that time of the month again, when the whole grid goes crazy with the Monthly Midnight Madness! If you don’t know how the event works, you can find all the information you need HERE. Basically the designers offer two items, one that opens at midnight on Friday night, and the other one that opens at noon an Saturday afternoon. The items are limited to 1500 pieces, so if you are one of the lucky 1500 to slap the board first, you get the item for free. Don’t worry though, because if you miss it, there are last chance vendors out on Sunday 11th February for 24 hours only where you can buy the items at a heavily discounted price.

I have a couple of items in the Monthly Midnight Madeness this weekend to show you. My gorgeously cute top and shorts are from Pink Cream Pie. The Charlotte Top is the midnight item. It comes in fits for Belleza, slink and Maitreya. The sexy Vivi shorts are the noon item. They also come in fits for Belleza, Slink and Maitreya.

HeartBeat Jewelry Set Close

My Jewelry is from Elle Boutique (formerly Slipper Originals). The Carmel Jewelry set is the midnight item and it includes the bracelet, earrings and necklace. The set is materials enabled and you can resize all pieces on touch. The Amara Belly Ring is the noon item, also from Elle Boutique. Amara is rigged for both Slink and Maitreya, and with the Maitreya rigging there are 5 different heights available, please try the demo to see which one fits you best. Again this piece is materials enabled. Elle boutique are offering an add on texture change HUD to buy at a discounted price to go with both of these items.

HeartBeat Belly Piercing Close

My pose is from Lyrium Poses, and this is #2 in the Bento Series Set 4, just released on the market place. There are 6 poses plus mirrors and they are all Bento enabled. You can get this set and other fabulously natural looking poses from the Lyrium market place store.

three is not always a crowd

three is not always a crowd...

Three’s a crowd, or so they say. That’s not our experience! We three get on like a house on fire! Back together with two of my most favourite people in SL, the very charming and handsome Fitz (of Fitzhugh Nicely Blog), and the very beautiful and lovely Souz. There’s nothing we enjoy more than hanging out together, especially when there’s cuddles to be had! And with this great sofa from Gems of Topaz, we just can’t go wrong! We are showing off the Amor collection today, with the Sofa that holds a plethora of poses, for two or three avi’s. There are some nice casual animations, plus some couples and threesome cuddles. There is also the table in the collection, with the wine and the love sign. Both pieces are perfect to set the scene for a romantic evening in, and seeing as it’s Valentines day soon, you should hop over to The Underdog Event and grab the Amor Collection Sofa and Table from Gems of Topaz, as they are exclusive at the event, which runs until 16th February.

We have the company, we have the wine, now all we need are a few roses….Oh, wait, we have them! They come in the form of the Tale as Old Dome from Distorted Dreams. This beautiful little piece of decor is a cute addition to any romantic scene. The Tale as Old Dome is also an exclusive right now at The Underdog Event.

tale as old dome - distorted dreams

So…company – check, cuddles – check, wine – check, roses – check, but what about sexy clothes? Well! We have those for sure. My outfit is the very sexy and cute Christine Outfit from LX Essentials. Christine includes both the sexy short cropped top and the very tight an clingy mini skirt. You can buy the top and skirt separately, both are available in 6 pastels colours, plus black, or you can buy a fatpack which includes them both in all colours. Christine comes in fits for Maitreya, Slink and Belleza. You can get Christine exclusively now at the Blush event, which runs until 18th February.

My tattoo is from Juna Artistic Tattoo, This is the Fleur Tattoo and it is discounted to just 59LS at the current round of The Avenue which runs until 22nd February, The tattoo comes in both light and dark shades, I’m wearing the light, and it comes in appliers for Slink and TMP, plus a multiple HUD for Maitreya, Belleza, Eve, and Altumura. It also comes in classic tattoo layers for non mesh bodies.

My earrings and eye shadow are both exclusives, again at The Underdog Event. The earrings are the Rini Earrings from Michan, they come in three colours, gold, pink and silver. They are unrigged so you can resize and move them around as you need. My eye shadow is from the Catwalk Eye Shadow Collection, from !IT! Indulge Temptation. These eye shadows come in an absolute plethora of colours, with 12 different colour packs, each including 10 shades, and at only 120LS per pack, they are very bargainous! These are appliers for Catwa only.

Sofa Day

Sofa Day

I hadn’t spent much time with my good friend, blogging buddy and all round partner in crime, Fitz (of Fitzhugh Nicely Blog), lately and we finally managed to find some quality time together, spending the day on the sofa just chatting and generally enjoying each others company. I love collaborating with Fitz, we always have lots of fun taking the pictures and I have to send him a special thank you for adding the essential bit of male sexiness to my blog, thank you Fitz!

The furniture we decided to snuggle down on is the Valentine set from also Known as, or ~aka~ as they are more commonly known. The set includes the sofa, armchair, planter, lace curtain, and there is a rug too but I haven’t shown it here. Both the chair and the sofa have lots of poses for singles and couples including nice cuddles like these in the pictures and also some adult ones too. You can grab this furniture now at The Underdog Event which runs until February 16th.

Staying with The Underdog Event, my beautiful jewelry is the Fiona Jewelry Set from Fortuna. The set includes the earrings, pendant and necklace and they come with a texture changing HUD offering lots of colour options for both the gems and the metals. You can also resize and move the pieces about to get them to fit as you need.
