Christmas Love

Hello my lovelies!


Tomorrow I'll be traveling to see family and friends I haven't seen in over a year! This means I won't get the chance to make any new posts until after the new year! With that said I wish you all a very Merry Christmas, happy holidays or whatever it is you celebrate (or don't). Please stay safe over this busy holiday time and enjoy the small things!

I'm so looking forward to this trip! I have a wedding and I'm going to be an Aunt again! I truly can not wait!

Have a brilliant time as you all ring in the new year! I look forward to starting fresh and new in 2012! My love to all of you <3

Until next YEAR!

Love Khloe

Let me Clear My Throat..

I was surprised to see a comment about a recent post on bad neighbors. I always love to get feedback and I wanted to be sure I gave her what she wanted!

I previously blogged about bad neighbors and I have to admit for once I was wrong. Shortly after I made my bans in anger I received an IM from one of their friends. I'll admit I was actually annoyed at this. I purposely  did not answer but my roomie is ever the good gal and quickly fixed things. I still wasn't pleased but I decided to just let it go.

ow comes the foot in mouth part. I got an IM from one of them asking to give us a Christmas gift. :O

Look at my sweet kitties!!!!
Ok this is by far the worst blog posting I've done and probably the worst picture I've taken but hey... When I'm wrong I admit it. So if you were wondering what happened with the great neighbor debacle... They turned out pretty awesome and they even removed the yucky decor. The moral of this story is.. Don't be so quick to judge..

Btw.. this adorable kitty bed was on of the Advent Calender gifts at the KittyCat's mainstore!

Also in case you missed my last post. If you are interested in winning up to 15K click here!

OMG.. They're cuddling!
okay I'm done now!

Until Next time... when I have a "real" post..XOXO

Oh.. Anyone who knows anything about KittyCats.. feedback is WELCOME as I have NO clue whats good, bad or whatever.. Let me know what you think of the kittehs!

If the Shoe Fits

Evening my lovelies!

I wanted to take a minute to talk a little bit about one of my favorite shoe designers in SL. Cerberus Noel of *G Field*. I have been a longtime lover of this store's shoes and verious other items. It's been a really long time since I have last willingly bought shoes in SL other than hunts or discounted items. With my new SL work I've been able to save a bit to treat myself and I knew right away where I was headed.

One of the things I love so much about *G Field* is the quality versus pricing. I feel it's one of the few shoe locations I can grab a pair of heels that I actually like and plan to wear again without weeping over my Linden accounts. Add to this the enormous amount of color options and this girl is hooked for life!

Check out some of my awesome goodies!
I absolutely HAD to have these shoes. For some unknown reason I love love love T strap sexy heels. This always amazes me because in RL I don't even own heels anymore. I guess this is my way of getting to live a little and these shoes are the perfect addition to my collection. This is saying something because I tend to be horribly picky. I have a "Wear it!" folder and then a shoe folder I shove things I don't love so much. These are absolutely in my "Wear It!" folder. The options on these shoes blows my mind. There are 4 different strap options (criss cross, single strap etc.) As well as options to change the sole and buckle colors! For only 200L, yes your read that right. I didn't miss a 0... OMMMG..But I didn't stop at just shoes... Oh no no.

Before I knew what hit me I was buying socks too! I secretly love thigh highs and knee highs with heels. I hadn't planned on grabbing socks but I'll admit I saw this adorably dressed gal standing near the landing and she had the socks. How could I say no?! These come in the tall and short packs. The cuffs are scripted and customizable as well! Each pack of socks comes in 7 color combos for 200L or you can grab the fatpack and just run with it! Just as I was about to leave.. I saw..

I Hate Tacky but I do Love Cute!

Hello my lovelies!

Today is a story about tacky neighbors. I'm really protective of my little sanctuary. I try not to be gaudy or too ridiculous. That being said I was a little despressed by our newest neighbor. We didn't get off to a great start.

At our current rental we are only to have fences below 2M which is pretty decent for keeping out unwanted neighbors while still keeping the sky clear for everyone's enjoyment. Nothing says "No trespassing" like a mini fence. For the most part I end up leaving my avatar parked for anything length of time at the center of our plot where I generally land. Imagine my surprise when I come back from grabbing some hot cocoa to see someone is within a few meters of me! It's my new neighbor attempting to climb our wall! I guess she was a bit surprised to see someone was actually there (I have the option to see and chat turned off) and when I asked if I could help she quickly scampered away. Shady. I'm not a huge fan of unwanted guests so this didn't leave me very hopeful for the future.

Our sim is also supposed to be "farming or country" so I'm trying to understand what sex pose ball rugs all over have to do with that... breeding babies?! I don't know and believe me this isn't all of it. There are blinking lights, particle emitters and the ban lines. Those darn ban lines. Because the first thing I want to see is yellow lines whenever I happen to turn around. Annoying >:(

But enough about the uglies. Let's check out some cutes. I can't decide what I love more.. The new Paper Doll dresses from Perfect Wardrobe or the adroable sparkley mesh heels, Leverocci's With Love Hunt Item... SO hard to choose. I guess it's a good thing for me they make a great outfit! Check it out below!

With Love Hunt.. Preview!

Hello my lovelies!

This is the first time I'm getting to preview something so yay! If you are like me, you probably hate sorting through hunt items. I love everything I find but I often get WAY too much! Below are some of the awesome things I was able to snag early for review!Trust me when I say this is only a few of the great items you can grab! Also keep in mind that each hunt item costs 10L. The upside to this is that each item is valued at at least 400L so no matter what you are getting a great deal. I always love these types of hunts because you always find a new designer you may not have found before and it's almost like a test run! Enjoy.

It's Miasnow-ing in my Backyard

Hello my lovelies!

Okay, sorry for the corny title.. I was just excited! I tend to be pretty sentimental about stores I've been following for a while. Miasnow is one store I've had a girl crush on for about as long as I can remember! Her goodies have gotten me through so many crazy skin and hair events it's almost a little embarrassing. But not really, because I love her goodies.So when my good friend Lilly gave me the heads up on a recent blog post Mia wrote I knew I had to give it a go...

As I'm sure you've seen my life has been one big winter wonderland. My neighbors probably think I'm insane. Or if they didn't they sure do now!
When Mia passed me these adorable polar bears I knew they were the perfect completion to my little slice of SL winter heaven! Better yet, you can snag the lone polar bear with his color changing light with a simple click of the MM in store. I personally know quite a few of my friends have already made the mad dash down to grab theirs!

I'm showing you this adorable beast in it's 13 prim normal form. He's sitting on top of his own icy patch complete with soft glowing grass and delicate particles rising all around him. One of the best features is that you have the option to click on just about anything on him! This means you can pretty much turn off, modify and copy most anything about him. I love anything that let's you play around to get exactly what suits your mood!



The target for the MM board is currently 55 clicks so grabs your friends, your neighbors, heck drag grandma down if you have to! But don't worry if you don't quite make that target... she's been known to force it a time or two.. Still it's be pretty great to show how much we love her but giving it a full go :D

You probably also noticed that sweet family of bears playing around in the background! Mama, Papa and Baby bear just love to fool around. You can grab these little guys in store to keep your new MM friend company! Grab then -inworld- for just 199L or on Marketplace for just a tiny bit more! These items come Copy/Mod so you can play around with the position they also come each beach separated so you can choose to have to use one, or 20!

 I have so many more things to show you when I get the chance! Including some adorable tops Mia passed over as well! Khloe has been a busy busy girl! Thanks so much Mia for all the amazing goodies<3

The fantastic Winter Overload!

Hello my lovelies!

It's been a while. Especially for fashion. I'm sorry for that. I'm back now though and I'm overflowing with awesome goodies!

First off I hit the Winter Fair yesterday. I have to admit I was pleasantly surprised!! after my lag fest-y attempts to hit locations with people recently I'd about given up leaving my house. Can you believe I hit the Winter Fair and with over 47 people there at the time I was walking as if I was the only person on the sim?! I give props where they are due. This was EXCELLENT execution! Plus beyond all of the exclusive winter items this fair was jam packed with goodies for visitors! Most stores had some sort of offering to the masses, Here are a few I loved!


Worn:
Hat: .ID.- New gatcha item! (comes in a few different colors and each set has 3 versions! (Hair not included))(5L each try!)
Skin: *JeSyLiLO*- Winter Fair gift (Free)
Sweater: [Y]- Winter Fair gift (Free)
Boots: Tentacio- Winter Fair gift (Free)

You can head to the winter fair -here-

I've also switched over to the official first release of Firestorm! I'm really hoping this works out better for me. In previous week I began to have a ton of issues with the beta client. It eventually escalated to the point that I couldn't even take a picture for myself. I've you've been avoiding the mesh viewing goodness of Firestorm because of that reason... I can attest to it being fixed.!!


Fear not, I promised goodies and I shall deliver! Ricielli recent put a full holiday avatar on Marketplace! This set is jam packed with holiday goodness.

The set named 'Meggie' includes:

1 Shape, 1 skin (2 tones), tattoo layer red lips (which IMO look awesome with any skin!), eyebrows,  2 different jackets, sparkly red dress, red and green versions of the Christmas dress outfit, black boots, full perm santa hat and a style card for everything not made by R.icielli.

I thought this package was an extreme deal. Currently priced at 199L it's the perfect pack to complete you holiday look! I was also impressed with the package set up. Each outfit was packed as a "look" so you don't have to worry about mixing anything up! Grab it quick, I believe the price is only set as mentioned for 24hrs!!

Hope you all have a great week! I'll be sure to be dropping in with more goodies to suit your holiday needs soon!I've recently started working for a new shopping plaza called Axis Group Plaza. The company itself owns everything from stores to clubs and everything in between. If you are looking to rent a store or just looking to check out a new place stop in or feel free to contact me. We're also hiring everything from sales, customer serivce to club hosts and DJ's. If you happen to be looking for a job contact me in-world and I'll set you up with an application!

Until Next time! XOXO

Everything is Golden

Hello my lovelies.

Today ends one my experiments. After doing the Newbie Style Challenge a few weeks ago I began to start thinking about how people in SL make money. My main focus was on someone new who may not have developed the skills to work or just plain don't know where to look for a job in SL.

Admittedly a lot has changed since I was a newbie. When I first started camping was still in full swing, and jobs in clubs were actually worth something. With new clubs popping up daily it's not often easy to pull in large crowds or get big tippers anymore. Sometimes the thought of a club is SO overwhelming to someone who is new and more often treatment can be poor if you show signs of being new. Not always but enough..Events themselves used to be another way to make cash while having a good time. Now there are so many rules and cheaters it's almost scary. Of course there are a TON of other types of jobs to be had as well. Goodness knows we've all held enough of them. But what happens when you can't supply yourself with Lindens from a RL account and you just can't find a suitable job?

For the past few weeks I've been dabbling in some of the lesser shown ways to find some money. One of the first questions I get asked when encountering someone new is "how do i get money?". Often that answer leaves people more confused. I wanted to show a few things I found! Previously I did a stint with Earn2Life. Personally it wasn't for me. I found the hud you use was often unreliable and didn't handle lag all that well. I also felt that the process of earning the money often had little to do with things I wanted to learn or do. It might be up your alley but I don't choose to endorse it myself.

I did however also take a chance with Gold Hunt. I have to admit I was pleasantly surprised with what I found.  Pretty much the idea is simple. You tp to one of the locations (you can find a huge list on the website!) locate different coins and click them. Depending on the worth you have to wait a certain amount of time before you answer a simple mathematical question. (ex. 3+4.. pretty simple) Once you correctly answer the question to are given the value of the coin you clicked. Not all coins equal a full Linden so you have to visit different locations and often multiple times. You should take note that you will not receive the money immediately. Often the coins you are finding range from 0.05L- 1L, gems equal more. The coins and points you earn are put into an account. When you have earned at least 1 full Linden you can TP to the Headquaters or anyplace with a gold ATM and cash out. You may only cash out 100L a day.

I was actually pretty surprised at how addicted I became. If you are competitive like me it becomes more than a game. For instance, if you are not within 3 meters of your coin when the waiting period if up someone can swoop in and steal it from you. I'll be honest, it DOES happen. There are people who will jump all over a high paying coin or gem if you aren't watching. On the other hand there are many many more players who will gladly clear the sim if they see you've already laid claim to most of coins.

Some more interesting things I liked were the people and the sense of community. Admittedly I was skeptical. People can be mean. But after a while you begin to recognize faces and locations. I've met some pretty neat people as well as having found some pretty neat locations. I've visited haunted mansions, swam through underwater caves and have even found long forgotten hot spots.

I also have to say the service I received from the staff was actually pretty decent. You can join the group in-world and watch for postings or issues. It's also a great way to meet the players around the grid. I did have one run in with a chat Moderator. However I am pleased to say I brought up the issue to the CEO Wili Clip and unlike some companies I actually received a reply and carried out a pretty intelligent conversation. The end result left me feeling good that someone was out there  was listening to me!


All in all out of 2 weeks I only spent about 10 actually hunting. My end cash out was  just over 500L. To many this isn't a ton but to someone who may not have any other means it can be a huge deal. If you happen to be new or know someone who could use some extra cash for the holiday's pass it along! Happy hunting :)

Until Next time! XOXO

Great Outdoors

Hello my lovelies!

As I mentioned in my last post I'm in a redecorating mood. SO when a little birdie told me about an amazing outdoor decor sale I just had to jet on over! Nature's Touch Nursery is going out of business sadly. The store was set to close a few days ago but lucky for me it seems to be extended until Nov 30th! About 99% of the items are set to free. That means ever blade of grass, every tree, every stone along a path or water is free!! FREE! The one thing I lack in my inventory is decent trees that aren't 10 prims or more. I snagged some amazing pines here for 0L at 5prins a piece!!


I'm pretty sure I bought one of everything as most things were Copy/No Mod/No Trans! Just as I was about to being worrying about carting all my goodies home I was thrown for yet ANOTHER loop. Another LM? A WINTER zone?! OMG. Be still my heart.

 The only things not for sale here is the sky-box, snow on the ground and the cabin. Fear not though, this cabin is stuffed with gift boxes, lights, and tree decor! <3

Over 60 transactions later I struggled and shoved 2 semi's worth of inventory back to the house. I wonder how much I can fit on our little plot?! GC's going to have a fit!

Until next time! XOXO

Vinter Vunder Lannnd

Hello my lovelies!

I miss winter .. really badly actually. It's currently raining pretty hard in my neck of the woods. As I sat at my computer nibbling on a mint chocolate chip ice cream sammich I started to crave snow and cold weather. Since my RL wasn't satisfying my needs I decided to create a winter oasis in SL for myself!

I was feeling  a bit inspired so I decided to dig out some old textures and whatnot and build myself a house! Yep.. I built that beauty! Well.. not the door... I borrowed that because marketplace refused to deliver my sculpty door so I ran out of patience and used the one from my old house. Whew.

To complete my wintery look I decided to head on over to {What Next} on Marketplace and grab some of the awesome goodies they had! Currently they are putting out the new winter/Christmas items in world so lucky me a ton of the older stuff was marked down to just 10L. That bit of tree this picture is peering through as well as the awesome snow are just some of the MANY goodies found for amazing deals! <3

The house in comprised of one long room and a smaller room off to the side. I wanted something big enough to put up some fun decor without losing prims. I'm currently in crash mode or else I would be decorating the interior a bit more! Most items shown are from a mix of places. If you want to know where anything if from feel free to comment or IM me inworld :) The wreath over the fire place is another goodie I grabbed from {What Next} for 10L

PS. The interior wall textures were made by me! A little something I came up with a few years ago. Colors include red, blue, teal, yellow and brown. All wall textures are detailed with upper and lower molding and trim as well! The rest of the building textures are from scattered locations.

Until next time! XOXO

The Biggest Sale evvvverrr

Hello my lovlies!

I'm a little late on this one but I believe it's better late than never, eh?

Keep in mind if you haven't been yet, or you want someone to tag along you need to join TheWarehouse group. You can find the group -here- . It's free to join but it is necessary to get to this event. If you have trouble you should be able to find the group in my profile for a few days :) Then feel free to TP away.

Also it should be noted that there are quite a nice amount of designers participating but if you are looking for clothes Armidi supplied about 75% of them from what I saw. I happen to own at least one of everything Armidi had in the past so this wasn't much for me. But if you've always drooled over the designs but never had the cash this is the ideal time to give yourself a holiday treat! <3

Aside from that little diddy I don't have much for you currently. Things have been horribly busy in my RL. We'll be doing a LOT of traveling over the next few months because the family that actually celebrates holidays lives far away from us. Also funds are limited in both worlds so keeping up with all the amazing goodies out has been a task. Being on a budget in SL is new for me.. and at the same time not so new. Normally I budget myself just for the sake of not over buying. Which I could easily do if I let myself! Now it's choosing between spending 750L on new mesh boots.. or paying land rent. We've minimalized out land to the smallest plot with the most prims. I suppose we could give it up but I like having a house to come home to and a place to rez my photo box without having newbies attack :D - I suppose in my rambling way what I'm trying to say is : I'm currently pretty poor in SL and on a tight budget in both worlds. I'll still be blogging but don't expect new and amazing wardrobes from me any time soon. Time for this chica to get an SL job. EEP.

Don't give up on me :D

Until next time! XOXO

Vintage Fair: I've really made it

Words can't even begin to describe my time at the Vintage Fair! I was super excited when I was one of the first 10 people to make it to the sim for opening. I actually was so insistent on making it there today to be a super cool blogger that I faked interest in land for rent on a nearby sim. In my thoughts the closer I was the easier it would be to get there. Ding Ding!! We have a winner.

That sexy orange blog there in the corner would be me. I made sure to remove all body parts to show how purrdy I am. Hehe

I hope your visit to the fair wasn't as insane as mine. Six crashes, 2 sim deaths and an entire reboot of the PC later it seemed smarter to just wait. I take full responsibility and I'm not blaming my insane time on anyone but myself. I tend to have no patience when I see what I want. Which is what made this trip so hard for me. I made it into a full rezzed sim (btw that awesome pre rez poster they sent was a FANTASTIC idea) but I was unable to purchase anything farther than 20M from me. Which pretty much was the biggest tease ever. Oh well, I'll just keep trying over the next few weeks!

Until next time! XOXO

I will leav e my mark so everyone will know...

Hello my lovelies.

I initially started this post to rant about some of the drama I've read about recently but quite honestly for once I realize it's not my fight. I'm a small blog just starting out. I don't have contacts or designers in my pocket.  But ya know what.. -I was here, I just want them to know- SO here's a little fashion something for you all followed by a little chat session! Enjoy :)

Worn:

Scarf: Kyoot 50L Friday (Part of a sweater. There are 4 colors to choose from)
Dress: Tres Blah 50L Friday (2 dress color options as well as a necklace to buy)
Boots: [Elikatira]  in Black

* Note: unless otherwise stated I am wearing the same hair/skin/eyes as previous posts.

Okay let's get serious for a moment. Upfront i mean no disrespect or any ill will.

Sometimes I wonder how you become one of the "elite bloggers". I figure I'd be bad at it becasue I've never been really good at meeting people. The one thing that keeps me blogging is the love of clothing and my appreciation towards designers who are putting in the hard work. I've said it before and I'll say it again: I believe an honest blogger is a good blogger. I've spent a lot of money on something I saw in a post only to realize that the item in question had been photo shopped beyond recognition. I'm a huge believe in help cristicism. Helpful being the key word. I also think that sometimes we all inflate our own self worth to the point we forget the "little people" out there. Sometimes it's those "little people" that are keeping your store or blog or whatever afloat and all we want is to be treated as an equal.

I've been seeing a lot of people blogging the Vintage Fair. I missed the deadline to apply as a blogger. I kick myself a little bit that I missed it. At the same time I was a bit afraid to even send in an application. I sent my first blogger request ever a few weeks ago and apparently I didn't even warrant a response. A simple "no thanks" would have been fine. But to be absolutely dismissed without even a comment makes me feel small. Live and learn I suppose.

I guess what I'm trying to get at with my rambling is that we all matter. Even the smallest of us have an impact on someone. That being said I appreciate each and every viewing and comment I receive. I do this for you and I like knowing you enjoy it as much as I do. I probably won't ever be a mega blog like some out there but I will continue with my little circle because it's what I enjoy.

Also if you are someone small or just anyone looking to get noticed I'm always happy to post an ad or do a review for free. I love to help small businesses such as muself even get a sliver of acknowledgement. The same goes for wannabe bloggers. Thus far this journey has been completely my own but I'm always willing to share the spot light for anyone not ready to start their own. You can always contact me and work something out! :) (Ps. Check out the new Join Me/Contact me page for info on contacting me! or post a comment below :D)

Until next time! XOXO

Girly

Afternoon my lovelies!

After spending the RL afternoon with the menfolk at Lowes I felt it was time to give myself a good dose of girlie! Much to the surprise of anyone around me I've been blasting Taylor Swift, Adele and Beyonce as high as my little mini sub will let me. 

>>Squinty eyes<< "You hammer all day, I blast girlie music darnit!"


I love the new Sea Hole dress at Collabor88. Actually I'm in love with almost this entire Collabor88 collection to be honest. I just keep going back to buy more. Today's look was inspired by the super cute fashion of Taylor Swift, minus the long blond hair!

Worn:

Hair: [E] @ Collabor88
Skin: Illusory @ Collabor88
Dress: The Sea Hole @ Collabor88
Boots: [E] @ Mainstore
Poses: (pda) @ Collabor88

Don't you love the soft silhouette of this dress?! It comes in so many colors from pastel pink to dark and daring black. Such a good by and unlike some sculpty skirts it was super easy to move around a bit to get an exact fit. Once again I am a huge fan of The Sea Hole.

Until next time! XOXO

Collabor88- Discount Diva Makeover

'Evening my lovelies!

I've become a huge fan of Collabor88. It's not often I find a collection that I buy something from each and every time. I am so so in love with this month's collection! So much in fact that it inspired a makeover of sorts!

The hair, dress and skin shown are all part of the November Collabor88! I am soooo in love with this dress from Ingenue! It is mesh so be warned you will need to be using a mesh viewer (duuh) but the peek-a-boo back is totally worth it! The dress comes in 3 other colors so you can be sure to find something to suit you! While I was on a shopping roll I found this creamy smooth skin from Illusory! I did add a few makeup touches myself as the makeup consists of pale pink lips and pastel colored shadows. I love the milky look of this skin. I've been wearing League skins for a while now and was never happy with the palest shades offered. Generally I'm a one skin type of girl, I'll wear it till it's outdated but goodness this is gorgeous. Feeling truly inspired I opted for [E]'s Brown 6 shade instead of my normal darker tresses! I eve gave my shape a little of a work over!

Also worn is the past 50L Friday scarf from Miel, and shoes from G*Field. For those frugal fashionistas out there: the stocking worn are a little fat pack I picked up on Marketplace for only 1L! You can grab them -here- and be sure to check out all the other goodies offered :D

Until next time! XOXO

LOTD- Snuggles

Hello my lovelies!

Do you know what is absolutely no fun? I do! Being woken up at 5:30am by loud thumping, followed 2 hours later by the roofers you've been waiting for for over a month.

The upside to all this was we finally got our new roof! Coupled with a late night however makes this girl a lazy bum! I battled around for a while with some outfits that just didn't suit my mood. One of the things I've been disliking lately are some of my animations in my AO. I've spent a good deal on some gorgeous sweaters only to be unable to wear them because my arms/hips/butt get in the way. After fiddling, swapping and changing I was able to test it on this luscious sweater from {u.f.o}. The thick cable knit made me want to curl up in front of the fire with a good book and tune out the world! What do you think? Comfy weather cute?

I wasn't feeling jeans with this look and while it was nearly long enough to sport as a dress I just didn't feel to comfortable with that! We all know how snoopy some folks can be! Instead I paired it with the Heather Grey tights from Mon Tissu layered underneath a pair of thigh high socks. The perfect compliment to the look was the black leather boots I bought from [e] during the anniversary sale!

Just a little something short and sweet. I certainly recommend checking out the sweater if you haven't already. It comes in pastels and darker rich colors as well and is priced at an easy $180L! Considering it comes with re-size scripted and non scripted options it really is a versatile piece well worth the price!

Until next time! XOXO

LOTD- Just a little something

Hello lovlies!

I just wanted to share today's look with everyone. I'm not sure how I'm feeling about it honestly. Aside from the skirt I'm not showing much new or unseen.

Check it out!
Worn:

Sweater- Mon Tissu
Undershirt- Jane (Old Subscribo)
Skirt- Ingenue (this past 50L Friday item.. was still out as of an hour ago)
Boots-[ E]

I putzed around with the beige skirt and a blue sweater but the combo wasn't quite what I was hoping to be. Also it should be noted that this skirt is mesh. It comes with glitch pants and a mesh piece that is only between the legs to give that super tight effect. The mesh comes in two different sizes and there is a demo available for anyone still not sure of mesh fitting yet!

That's all for now darlings! Have a good rest of the weekend!

Until next time! XOXO

Newbie Style Challange-Get your newb on

As we all know I adore blogger challanges. I especially like a challange of making an avatar from scratch using a budget. If you haven't guessed by now I am a huge lover of anything cheap or free. I do spend money in stores but I also thing a healthy amount of gifts entices someone to spend money as a 'Thank You' as well as allowing a person to sample items without wasting money on something that might not be quite what they had hoped.

That being said when I saw Gogo of Juicy Bomb had started the Newbie Style Challenge II, I was Super excited. You can read the rules and such -here-

If you have spent any time in SL with me then you know I have an alt addiction. Most recently I cut back to those linked to anything I still do in SL. There was a time when I would create an alt just to 'make her/him over'. I would hunt all over SL just to prove I could make an avatar that cost 10, 20, 30L..even free. SO the 550L limit for this challenge sounds like a fortune.

I started out as a brand newbie with a new alt I made. I decided to make not one but three looks in total.(I may do more in the future! keep posted)

Look 1:

Worn:

           Hair: D!va- Group gift (there are tons here + free group join!)   = 0L
Scarf: Mr. Poet- Store Freebie (Boxers also + 2 Lucky Boards   = 0L
Dress: Riddle (+ 2 shirts Gift @ Fab Free HQ-TONS of goodies) = 0L
Boots: Vinyl Cafe (Dollarbie a day location- past  are 50L now)  =50L

total: 50L

Look 2:

Worn:
Hair: D!va- Naomi 20000 members (Group gift)    = 0L
Necklace: Milady's -  (Marketplace)                       = 0L
Dress: Entre Mares - (Fab Free HQ)                       = 0L
Shoes: Maitrya- Subscribo Gift                               = 0L

Total: 0L


Look 3:

Worn:
Hair: D!va - Haruka (Group Gift)                       = 0L
Sweater: ~Sweet Poison~ - (Marketplace)        = 0L
Skirt: JANE - In store Gift (Tons others too!)     = 0L
Boots: COCO- Group Gift (Tons more!)              = 0L

Total: 0L

About My Body!:

Shape: Made by me :)                                               = 0L                    
Skin: Mamboo Chic- Lucky Board       = 0L
           Eyes: TechnoLati- Hazel Blue on Marketplace         = 1L

 Total: 1L

Over all Spent: 51L !!

Additional Notes:

I also snagged some great things that aren't sp easy to see! Oracul offers one of the BEST freebie AO'S I've seen. You can snag it at the Fab Free HQ. It comes with a male AO as well and it's Copy/Trans!

The poses I used were freebies from Fab Free HQ and D!va (upstairs)

When making my looks this time around I wanted to focus on quality. Any old person can find a free outfit (If you can't then you deserve a smack upside the head ala Gibbs on NCIS.. :D). Rich textures and decent attachments make an outfit better than the system layer snoozer! The hardest things for me to find was decent hair (I tend to be ultra picky normally) and shoes. I never did go gaga over any of the shoes I found but oh well. Granted I could have used a chunk of that 550 to buy shoes or hair but I was more focused on an actual newb shopping.

Also noted: I could have made this super easy by doing hunts and current sales but I thought it smarter to show items that may still be around months from now!

Taking it one step further:

One thing we most often overlook is something as simple as a profile pic. Often spending 10L to upload is a big deal to someone new. (This is for anyone not using SL V3). During my quest for poses or photo studios to make a profile pic I found a rare gem. Studio Focus is a new photography location just getting started. As a special offer to new patrons they are doing one free shot to new group members. You can join the group - here-  and contact Sunnyboi Canis or Savannah OHare! (I'll be doing a write up in the upcoming days on these two so stay tuned if you are interested!

Check out the pic Savannah did for me:

Until next time! XOXO

Happy Halloween, but I'm feeling a bit Blah

Hey lovlies!

I had originally planned on showing something ghoul-tastic today in honor of Halloween butttt.. I ended up being introduced to this adorable store called Blah!

The stuff in this store is a bit out of my comfort zone but everything was so cute I couldn't resist sharing it with you all! It's a very 'American' store dipped in sugary sweetness. Imagine bright colors mixed with baseball T's, sweater dresses and  a great assortment of eyes, piercings and tatts! I am a total sucker for rich textures and cutesy items. You all really need to get over there and check things out!

Prices are absolutely reasonable and there are a ton of goodies to grab as well! hOshi is an incredibly generous designer who is active in hunts as well as offering 2 cheap gifts for Halloween and 3 lucky boards. Be sure to join her group as well because it's absolutely free as well as needed it to stalk the lucky boards and to get that free group gift in stores!





Pic 1: Top- Halloween cheapie (there is also a lingerie set offered as well!)
Pic 2: Top-  Lucky board item
Pic 3: Top- Group gift item!

The skirt shown in all three pictures is another lucky board item I snagged at Blah!

What are you waiting for?! Get on over there and snag some awesome deals!!

Baby it's cold outside

Hello again lovelies!

I just wanted to take a moment to show off my newest chilly weather look!


DCNY just released an adorable cable knit mesh sweater dress! I can't even begin to tell you how much this means to me! One of my favorite looks for the chilly seasons consists of sweater dresses and tights. In the past I've never been fully satisfied with the final look of any sculpted bottoms as the skirt portion never seems to full match up. Currently the dress is offered in a multitude of colors! You can find it in-world or on marketplace! Be sure to try out a free demo and obviously be using a mesh enabled viewer!!

Also worn:
Hair & boots- [elikatira] - Currently having it's 1 yrs Anniversary (70% off) until Oct 30th
Tights: Jane's subscribo gift

PS: Does anyone remember the store Wrong?! It was one of my first find way back in the day. There was a time when it was the best and most affordable clothing out there for my newbie self. The items were a little bit punk/grunge and totally awesome. Anyway where was I going with this?

Oh right! Wrong is back baby! There is a 24h 100L sale going on  starting at midngiht so stop on  it and take a trip down memory lane! hugggles

DollCoco- let's chat it out

OKay, has anyone else been to DOLLCOCO? I've heard some whisps of convo and decided to try it out when I saw that the owner had set the light and dark body parts as a free group gift.

I was actually really excited about all this because I happen to have what I consider my "broken dolly" alt. Pretty much she's got something of a cracked skin, a cutsey dress and hair and she reminds me off a neglected doll. I love her look so much I've never found anything to replace her outdated skin or other items. When I heard about the new "doll" avatars popping up I figured I would test drive them before I did the real deal.

Here's the thing. While I think the concept is new and exciting I don't love the end results. For one, I'd hoped for more body styles. The tall lanky model look isn't really what I would hope my dolly looked like. Another thing is the issues with mesh when removing the parts later on.

When I first removed the parts and got back to my normal self there was something horribly wrong with my avatar. No matter what shape I tried I was stuck in some sort of stretched out and squished old school "Ruth". Thinking it was just me I rebaked and eventually had to relog. I ended up relaying the message to my husband who in turn tried it himself (on a totally different PC) Again upon removal there were some serious shape errors. He also noticed that the eyes were displaced with the wonky shape and therefore were always following the camera. It was a bit creepy to say the least.

All in all I have to say I was pretty disappointed. However being me I always have to find some of the good in things. The idea in itself is pretty awesome and the store left me feeling like I had stepped into "Build A Bear". Also the outfits and added items were pretty neat as well :D

Creativity: A
Execution: D

As an update: I worried that it was some sort of SL meltdown with mesh itself. This seemed to not be the case. I was able to wear all my mesh goodies with no issues except for the DOLLCOCO items.

Thoughts, comments? Has anyone had this happen?

The Amazing Downfall of Khloe

Hi darlings!

First off, feast your eyes on this:


Isn't that the best picture EVER?! Yeah, that's what I'm seeing upon login. Supposedly that would be Truth's mainstore. Clearly something is amiss here. I've been crashing, freezing, and just plain sucky all afternoon! It took me a half hour just to get a group gift and only becasue I was convinced I had to have it in the event SL decides to die.

I'm having flashbacks circa 2007-2008 when the grid totally went down and there was a scant 1000 of us still clinging to life as "Ruth"'s. A few of my friends and I rode out the great death of SL after a party. We ended up marooned on an island and we all had tiny boobs and  big feet, even the guys. Those were the days. However this horrible slow death is just NO fun. Is it just me? Or is there something more going on that I'm not clued in on yet?


Update: Truth finally rezzed bt that group gift from elsewhere I wasted all that time on? GONE.

I'm a but cranky. It's been an odd few days. I spent yesterday in the hospital... again. It's starting to feel like this is my initiation into a new place. Move = ER visit. I will say this tiny town has a very decent hospital. For the first time in my life there was NO ONE in the waiting room. I was in, and with a doctor in under 20 minutes. Apparently someone thought it would be a hoot to give me McDreamy's younger brother while I was weeping in pain. I swear this kid was younger than me. But he took my pain away and for that I can't fault him.

However his free hand with the pain meds left me sleepy as all get out. INsert drowsy wakeup this AM and I had to go to the DMV to get my new license. Not a pretty site. However I did pass the stupid written test. Seriously who the heck makes everyone take a written test when they've been driving for years with no record? Annoyance.

Anywho: the moral of this story is... not a clue. SL has decided to dislike me. If it's not just me feel free to let me know. Until I can long in correctly -hugs!

Step into my dorky world

Hello lovelies! I wanted to share some excitement with you all! This is a bit of a step outside SL but it does have to do with the future of my blogging!!

I got a tablet! Or I guess I should say I've been loaned one (uhm yeah i'm not giving it up!) My Father-in-law was super kind to give me his barely used tablet. He bought it for work purposes, used it for less than an hour and completed the task he needed it for. I've been drooling over it for a while now.

I've read some good and bad reviews about how other bloggers and photogs with tablets feel about them. It seems a bit of a toss up. I happen to adore this one, at least for picture editing purposes. Sometimes I've wanted to get a bit artsy for the sake of a challenge or just for a personal picture and doing some of the things I've wanted just hasn't worked out with a mouse. SO yay, excitement. And please bear with me are I take the journey into something totally new for me :D

Oh and what's a blog without a picture! I'm not a great artist but it did giveme a better scale of what I could expect to do :D

I drew this completely by hand and then cheated with a but of autofill while i played around. I'd liken it to the work of a child but hey considering i couldn't even sign my name with a mouse I'm pretty excited to start advancing.

Also for anyone interested in how it would help them:

Editing or creating makeup especially delicate pieces is SO much easier.

Halloween Hunt-Ricielli Style

If you are like me the changing of the seasons generally means an overhaul of your wardrobe. I've made it no secret that I tend to dress myself ( for the most part) in whatever trends are popping up in seasonal wears.

As I mentioned in my last post I've been getting my hands into some of the large hunts again. While multi Sim hunts can be a blast and introduce you to all types of new things, I often enjoy a simple one store hunt. Ricielli is one of my favorite places to enjoy during a hunt. I happen to love the fact that the items can all be mixed and matched to make multiple high fashion as well as casual outfits.

Another great fact about Ricielli hunts is the lack of a time constraint. Granted no hunt can last forever but I've never found myself worrying about not finishing in the alloted amount of time. Add to this the interesting hunt layout. The items are generally easy to find but you also aren't going to always find things where you would expect. If you are looking for the shoes you might just end up finding them in the skin section. This coy setup allows for the hunter to truly look around the store while still being able to find the items they want at a fast pace. Of course some of you might be wondering how you'd even know what to be looking for or what gifts to be expecting. If you happen to be a Ricielli group member the hunt note cards are always send out and they always include a single picture detailing the hunt items as well as what will be inside. The hunt items are numbered to make it easier. If you aren't interested in a specific option because you already have it you can simply verify the number on the item with the number on the picture and voilĂ  - no gift repeats!

Check out the latest hunt going on now! Also keep in mind unlike most hunts the items you will be getting are not necessarily 'Autumn or Halloween' colors! Sometimes it's nice to get something fresh!


I loved the colors in this hunt. I've never missed the opportunity to catch a hot Ricielli item :D

I will give you a few helpful bits of info and thoughts on the products.  Each hunt item costs 15L. So if you happen to be a freebie fashionista then this hunt isn't for you. However if you like to snag an amazing deal while checking out a hot store then what are you waiting for!?

Also in regards to the items themselves:
- The 2 sets of earrings are a great steal. Keep in mind the jewelry tends to be on the large side and a big chunky.

- Number 17 is a multi colored shawl type shirt. If you have an avatar that moved her arms or has any chest thrusting animations you might want to skip this. I personally had some issues sizing it to one of my other personalities.

- Number 18 is a one shouldered Little Black Dress. Be warned this is one of Fhara's first attempts with mesh. There are 2 size options but I found it hard to size on myself. If you are a bit busty this might be up your alley/ However if you aren't yet sporting a Mesh viewer than move right along to the next goody.


JUst to give you an idea of the wear ability of the items :D

Let the hunt begin

I've been doing something I haven't done in a while. Hunts in SL. I'd thought I had outgrown them for the most part. I think mostly it had to do with the fact that I was using a less than stellar PC at the time which mean I was the girl you'd see half naked 'ghost walking' by you on the sim. Hunts or anything that make for tons of people near me pretty much were a bust.

I'd say I became a virtual hermit of sorts which is pretty sad considering one generally uses SL to be .. ya know.. social. That being said my new PC is a whole ton better. I haven't been using it so much because I don't have a desk ATM. Currently I'm rocking this makeshift uncomfy thang.. one of those little fold up tables lazy people eat tv dinners on... or old people use.. yeahhh one of those... and because my monitor and speakers take up it's entire surface I'm balancing my keyboard on a folded piece of cardboard. Gawd... I'm so ghetto!

It's okay, you can laugh if you want to. I do often.

Anyways believe it or not this post was actually about the hunts i did! Overall I like a good hunt. I tend to do well publicized ones for the most part. I also have a habit of choosing hunt I can skip around on. Because let's face it...relying on finding the next item to move on drives me INSANE.

Let's take the Zombie Popcorn hunt for example. 100 stores of awesome. SOMEHOW I managed to start the hunt before the hunt list and hints were passed out. I knew there were a few specific items from the hunt that I wanted to get right away as my time online is pretty much touch and go. So there I am huffing and puffing without my list and getting more mad by the minute. I'm pretty sure at one point I spent a half hour in a store looking for the little popcorn bag. There was a LOT of cursing and mumbling under my breath. I'm also pretty sure at some point I made a vow to myself. I decided any store that hid their item to the point of making me mad wouldn't be getting my patronage any time soon.

That's a big thing for me. I love hunts. And while hints are nice I really enjoy searching, laughing over silly mess ups with people and just generally getting the chance to explore forgotten or never before seen stores. However when I walk into a store that hid the item SO well that there ends up being an overflowing jam or people still looking, I start to get annoyed. Furthermore while I get that being cunning is great for a hunt, I feel excessive 'fake' hunt items, tinting the hunt item to blend with the color of your store or making it so small it's hard to tell the hunt item from a spot on your screen- is cheating. Or at the very least bad taste. I feel if I get to the point where if I have the option to move on without getting your item because I've looked for 15 minute or more and sill haven't found it- chances are I'm going to write your store off as well.

-End rant-

Look. I have things to show you. I ended up doing bits and pieces of multiple hunts that will take me forever to sort through. However I did manage to get these gems out of hiding!


Sweater- -Addict- : The seasons Hunt Item
Hair- Fri. : The seasons Hunt Item
Loung Pillow w/ accessories- {meberry} : Indian Summer Hunt Gift

That's all for now! It's my hubby's birthday so I'm going to go help him eat the cake! :D

Shop till you like Mesh

I'm really feeling very over Firestorm's issues lately. I don't know if it's me or something on their end but goodness is SL sucking for me right now. I've been crashing at nearly every TP, lagging so baddly at my own house I end up on the other side of the Sim. Suffice to say in the past 24hrs SL has decided to HATE me.

I tried rocking a non-mesh beta viewer and it worked briefly until all the items I snagged to show ended up being mesh. and then well. GRR. Anywho.. Hold onto your panties ladies because I have been shooooppping!





Picture 1: Tights, and Mesh Dress: Jane (Dress is on sale this weekend for 50L! There are 2 other colors available as well as goodies from various other stores on the sim!)

I Wanna Collabor88 With my 50L Friday

SO many goodies. <3

First off I hit Whippet & Buck's 50L friday item. As of Sunday it was still hanging on the wall. I'd say if you love it, try your luck!

 After grabbing this gorgeous backless dress I snagged some goodies from this round of Collabor88. The items this time were right up my alley! I ended up with some adorable clothes and hairstyles! You'll have to stop in yourself to get the full shabang. Also, pictures below is one color of the group gift. Currently there are 12 candies hidden around the location. You must be wearing the Collabor88 group tag to get the gifties when you click them! Each candy contains a top or bottom like the outfit I'm showing. 6 awesome free outfits all together! Yay!!

I would have loved to show all the color combos but time this weekend has been tight. We had company come visit our already hectic new life. Oh family.

Mon Tissu I adore you

I've been enjoying the seasonal changes in RL a lot. It's the first time in a year I am not surrounded by palm trees!

I was super excited to check out the latest releases from Mon Tissu in-world last night! I'll admit I did go a bit overboard on purchases. I also snagged my look from the picture ad because it was so very Khloe. It's quite hard to tell in this photo but I gave myself a bit of a makeover as well.




Worn: sweater, skirt, stocking and shoes all releases from Mon Tissu! Check them out!

Hair: [69]- MIMI 01- Mocha (Tinted) Currently on sale!

As I've mentioned often I tend to change my look with the seasons just like in RL. With this in mind I decided to go a shade lighter on my skin than normal. I also went a few shades lighter on my hair. It's minor but it still feels huge! Check it out

Old Khloe- Taken in July

New Khloe- Taken today!

Believe it or not these two photos were taken months apart. I chose to show the same hair and look in a lighter style to show the difference from then until now! I've had a few minor head shape changes over the months but have basically stayed the same. What do we think of the "new" me?

Whhheeeww. I'm calling it a day. This laptop I am currently using is horrible. It took me nearly 3 hours just to post this! I so miss my awesome computer. After a total of 15 crashes on SL I grabbed the least glitchy photos to work with.

If you've been following my blog at all then I am sure you are aware that being on SL is a bit hard atm. This being said some decisions had to be made.

It saddens me to say we've decided to move to a smaller plot. While I do hate to reduce prims, we will be doing something insane. It's time to say goodbye to the horses.
