It's all about meme

Miss Berry is at it again I love a good meme lately! This one is a few questions she would like you to answer soo here it goes!

"Meme Instructions: Create a new post, copy paste the following ten questions into your post, delete my answers and input your own about your SLife!..."
  1. What is the rez date for your current SL Avatar that you use most often? Khloe Nitely- January 17 2008
  2. Where was the first place you made friends as a newb and got to know people in Second Life? There was this place called THE BAY. Compaired to some of my first haunts this was pretty much the opening I needed in SL. It was this cute little beach area. There were huts, trails, lounge areas and all sorts of water sports. You could hop on a jet ski and fly across other sims, you could go sky diving. I met my first group of friends around the bonfire pit.  This place really opened things for me While the sim itself is still there Kaiya has since expanded her home decor to cover most of the sim. I kind of miss it a bit. It was the first places I forced myself to not be anti social!
  3. Where do you spend most of your SL time now? Standing in the middle of my skybox. In fact most of the time i forget to actually sit or move from my landing point.           
  4. Who is your closest friend in Second Life? (only pick one) If Jayme were still fully in SL. .. otherwise I don't want to name names, usually someone feels left out that way.
  5. What is the most favorite thing in your inventory? (only pick one) Oh man, easy! My Groovy Multi Gadget! I would honestly fail without this thing.When I finally decided to have an AO it was constantly breaking or just not working how I wanted to. Cue hubby-my scripter God. He put his skills together to combine a super easy AO system with all kinds of bells and whistles, with a flight assist/run booster with a radar. I know there are probably a million like it out there but I've never found another that works all the time and doesn't make me pull my hair out to change something. Plus who else has the creator in their pocket to add something like a dance hud or something to it?
  6. The last thing you purchased in Second Life? erratic / Amy - silk blouse- Salmon
  7. What color clothing does your avatar wear most often? It depends on what skin shade or hair I am rocking at a given time but I tend to gravitate towards pinky berry colors and teals a lot of the time.
  8. Do you prefer to walk, run or fly? I usually run because i am a failure at flying and well.. my run is a skip I've used to about 4 years!
  9. What is the craziest thing you’ve ever done in SL? I'm usually pretty boring but every once in a while I try and be fun Not long ago I was updating an alt when I saw a call through the Cupcakes group for anyone who wanted to come hang out. One thing led to another and We ended up dressed like Gangnam Style rejects... Few chicks and I think even a few men..chicks with sparkle dresses, black sun glasses and matching shoes. We ran around to a million sims and did the Gangnam Style dance for people. We got mixed reviews. We either picked people up to tag along or got threatened with being banned! It was pretty fun. Oh and one time I logged on the 12 alts I had at the time. We took a family picture before my computer died     
  10. Who would you like to play YOU, in the movie of your SLife? Olivia Wilde, hands down.  She can rock a strong jawline and heavy liner- what of it?!

He's so Dreamy..

I have been a huge fan of Cupcakes pretty much forever. I can still remember my first shopping sprees there way back when I was pretty much brand shiny new. It was a nirvana of complete awesome. Cute girly clothes and later on some awesome skins. Five years has not dulled my enthusiasm!

Most recently I was pointed towards something new and exciting- The Dreamboat male skin! It's pretty awesome. I can say this because yes, I decided to gender bend for a bit recently. Hey with a name like Khloe.. yeah no still a girl but it was still pretty fun!

This new skin line is currently available at the most recent Skin Fair that will be running until March 31st 2013!  You can check out Skin Fair Here! Please note this is a set landing point but you can find Cupcakes located at 132, 31, 20 on Sim 2 along the Southern most wall! Squee!

I'm a Mannnnn Baby. Yeah okay, now that I have that out of the way!...

The Dreamboat skin is offered in 3 shades: Pale, Medium, and Tan. The base skin runs for 900L which is a pretty decent price for a quality skin these days.

When I say base skin I mean no frills. You do get the option of Hairy versus Hairless.  This is refering to the body hair. The body hair is a light dusting of chest, happy train and well you know where hair grows on men hopefully!

Then this skin gets fun! There are SO many tattoo options It's almost insane. You can purchase the tattoo layers for 50-70-90L. You can buy all the tattoo layers for 500L!

There are 7 facial hair options: Goatee (Shown above 3rd face shot), full shadow beard, Dark beard, pencil moustache, Ethan, Chinstrap (Shown above Middle face shot)  and Blonde Beard (Shown above Top face shot)

There are 7 Details options: Tough, Mature, Oily, Tired, Patchy brows, Unibrow, and Wizened (grey) brows

And finally...

There are 7 make-up options: Black lips, blood drips, pale lips, dark lips, crossed eye makeup, eyeshadow, and eyeliner.

The possibilities are pretty much endless for combining.  If you haven't been by take the time to check out this set, you won't  be sorry!

Let me put this into [Context]

If you read my last post about my 7 SL facts then you know I pretty much stink at meeting people and making friends. You can understand then why I was so excited to have reconnected with an old SL buddy from way back when!

I first met Kennef back in 2008. He was like the big brother figure in my life for a long time. Eventually time and different groups of friends had me losing my way for a bit. I recently connected with Kennef again and I was super excited to hear he too had ventured into the world of fashion design! I mean really, who doesn't want a fashion designer friend in your pocket (PS. My fashion designing bes-tfriendship is totally up for grabs. , ahmmm)

If you haven't heard of [Context] By Kennef then I suggest you all get in the know on this one! His market place store holds everything from mesh, to swimwear and even some jewellery! If you are someone who loves multi-wear items then this place is for you! One thing I really love about [Context] is the texture change HUD. I mean I really love this. It's amazingly simple to use and I can wear one Mesh T-shirt with 5 different textures! This is pretty awesome for someone like me. I love to always be wearing a "fresh" outfit most days but sometimes it can be a HUGE pain to try and remember where everything is and exactly what I'm wearing. With these items I can simple attach a HUD and choose my next look. Simple!

Take a look at some of the goodies I got recently! Both of these looks do come with a texture HUD so you get a few options for a more than reasonable price!

The clothing does run more towards women, however if you are a guy who loves a great graphic Tee then look no further Kennef offer over 28 shirts for the casual male.

Believe me when I say the prices are beyond reasonable. In most cases you are getting that amazing HUD I mentioned so spending 189L for 9 textured dresses is pretty amazing.

[Context] Buckled Halter Dress w/ 5x texture change HUD
[Context] Zane Minidress  w/ 9w texture change HUD!


[Blossom] or now easier known as [B] is having another sale!! The Follow the Rainbow Sale runs until March 18th! ALL clothing is marked down to 75L, select shoes and boots have been marked down as well. Some sets in the store are marked down to 50L as well. Anything marked down to 50L will be removed from the Main Store and set on MP in the upcoming weeks so make sure to grab it while you can!

There is also a new group gift out! Join the [Blossom] group and wear your tag!

Let's chat! My 7 SL Facts

While I love a good fashion blog post there is one thing I almost love more- A blogger challenge! Okay I also love a good story post too. It helps break up the every present fashionistas out there and let's me see a little bit of you!

For a while now I've been reading Alicia Chenaux's "Ch'Know?" blog. I have a serious blogger crush on her stuff. I love that she keeps her fashion blog separate! I also love how she decorates (That's what originally sent me to her blog!)

Anyhow she recently did meme she saw from

My SL Fact #1:

Until this year I have never bought Lindens! All the Lindens I had I earned from jobs, surveys and silly things like Gold Hunt! Within 4 months of being in SL I had amassed 65,000L from being a dancer. Honest to goodness I have NO idea how that happened. I started dancing to meet people and make a little money. One job led to me working 5 clubs at once for a period.

My SL Fact #2:

 I am REALLY bad at meeting people. Like really bad (cue violins!) I have exactly one friend I talk to on a regular basis. I don't count my husband because most of the time we are in the same part of the house on our avatars! I like people but I feel super awkward going to things where everyone else knows each other. That girl standing there on the outskirts at your club or party pretending she's afk so she doesn't seem lame? Yeah, that's me! Let's be friends! Kay? But don't be a creeper please! (See story below!)

 When I was brand new I met this woman who promised to help me learn about SL. She took me to some free places to find clothes and introduced me to new places. Around my first or second day she tp'd me to her "house" (I later learned that she owned a slave dungeon!!) She took me to a room to let me "change" my outfit (At this point I didn't really grasp that I could change anywhere I wanted to, oye) As I was figuring our how to put things on, I looked around. I soon realized that the far side of the room was filled with sex furniture!! I had NO idea how to get out. I didn't have any landmarks of my own yet and I was still learning everything. I ran around the room running into walls and jumping over furniture until I finally learned how to use search to teleport elsewhere.

My SL Fact #3:

 Okay, deep breath.. Currently I have eleven semi active avatars. Yes.. 11. This doesn't even count the avatars I have deactivated. I began collecting them and calling them my army when drama struck in my life. It was like I became fixated on changing myself with each one until I found something that stuck. I would create a new avatar, make her/him pretty and quickly lose interest. I have all kinds now.. fantasy, hybrid, vamp, biker, retro, character.. you name it.  Khloe is not my first avatar. About a year before I made Khloe I had fiddled around with SL. I created an avatar then kind of freaked myself out and immediately deleted everything SL related! Khloe is actually my 4th avatar I made before it "stuck"

My SL Fact #4:

I met my RL husband in SL- He was a big red demon in a pimp suit, I was a gangly scantily clad chic with no AO. After some really hard times in my life G and I became close. 7 months into starting Khloe in SL I took a trip from the North East to the South East and finally met him face to face. 5 years later we're married! 2 years this August. I always thought people who met others online were creepy, losers or insane. I've obviously changed my tune!

My SL Fact #5:

I feel really inadequate as a designer. I make these items that I feel are great and I feel so proud- then I leave my safe haven, wander into a "big name" store and BAM! I see these insanely detailed pieces. I've considered closing my store about a million times. I start getting depressed because I only sell things during sales or in discount shops/events. I always want to buy or make something unique but I look at exclusive items that cost upwards of 10,000L- can not do it. Sometimes I see a bunch of bigger named designers with the same or similar mesh/sculpted items that I can not find myself to make. I swear there's a secret society of designers out there hoarding all the good stuff for themselves.. crazy lady in the house!!

My SL Fact #6:

 I had an SL baby once. I went through the whole SL belly and belly talker (while I was still dancing no less). We spent an absurd amount of money on a little prim baby that I think we used for a week, if that. I quickly realized I didn't know what to do with her. I wasn't interested in setting up baby furniture or watching her "grow". I did want an SL family though. A lot of my friends had siblings, parents, even god parents. I really wanted that but have never found people who stuck around long enough for me to feel comfortable with. My own RL family is sort of a mess and just like SL I really only have my husband. I'd love to have sisters to do girls day with or movie nights. I detest child avatars that have skins with makeup and look like little mini adults so I have a hard time considering adopting. I went through the process once and felt so awkward (again with the bad social skills, jeazzz) that I never finished the trial. She was sweet but not a good fit for me. I have a feeling I'd fall better into being the adult sibling or child..

My SL Fact #7:    

 I have land and housing ADD. I start off LOVING what I've done. I go through these insane decorating binges until I have a house that's somewhat of a show piece. Then I get bored and have to start over. My husband finally suggested I go premmie because we were moving monthly. I HATE the land we live on now but it's mine so here we stay. I would love to live on a sim with folks I considered friends or family. The type of place that was ultra decorated, had seasons and let me wander around without a million ban lines or little square parcels surrounded by water! Also.. I want to be able to put up a really awesome house with tons of rooms and not have to skimp on prims! arghhh

WOOW. When I started writing this I pretty much sat here unable to think of a thing to write... Now I'm having a hard time stopping. There are a million little things I want to share with people... whyyyyy. Please feel free to leave links to your own 7, if you go ahead and do this I love to read these things!

Arcade on my Mind

I am usually a tight fist when it comes to my Linden money. However this past weekend there were SO many adorable things. I have a really hard time turning down discounts and an even worse time turning down a gatcha. As you can imagine The Arcade was my heaven and hell.

I won't go into the maddness of showing you everything i got. Honestly it's a little scary. I had set a modest budget for myself and in a matter of days found myself blowing through thousands of Lindens and even going so far as to buy more. DO you know how many times in my entire 5+ years in SL I have bought Lindens? Twice. - This was only after I went premmie and had to buy land. You can see why my insane spending was out of control.

I do admit I hit up about 50 yard sales to boot. Holy buckets- Those places are almost as toxic to me as the original gatcha itself.

Finally I dragged my bleeding wallet around to a few discoutns and sales. Check out some of my goodies!

Shock and awe.. I took a non-white backgrounded picture! *fistpump*

Please don't hate be but I totally forgot to actually EDIT this. Oye. Anywho...

Hair & Flowers- Truth- Video Games- Ginger ( I snagged the faded brown and purple too. Wee!)
Necklace:.Olive. The folded Gold Paper Necklace- C (got G which =hubs initials! and also have B.. anyone want it? IM me !)
Fan: Shakeup Arcade Fan- Leaves

All these items can be found at The Arcade (and various yard sales... shhhh)

Also worn:
Dress- [AUX] - Summer Sun-Sky (also have Noon and Twilight)@ TDRF 40L

The curtain in the background is also an arcade sng. I am so in love with these. It totally pulled my slightly boring decor together perfectly!- I don't want to show you all my other things. It looks like something from Grandma's chatchki room.
