OOTD + Podcast – Sasy Scarborough & Whimsy Winx Discuss Demos in Second Life

49605615942_3a41feeadc_3k.jpgOOTD + Podcast Sasy Scarborough and Whimsy Winx talk Demos in Second Life by Whimsy Winx, on Flickr

My outfit/look of the day is a mix of old and new items. You may need alphas for this look, and they are not included with the items so I made my own.

My skin is made by Izzie Button who has updated for BOM! I was happy to find her Daphne skin also included an eye makeup that went well with my outfit. Izzie’s a great shop, she always is forward thinking about resident needs and tweaks! If you need  new makeup, a fix, a sunburn, age, or wanna catch pink eye check out her store.

Sasy and I recently chatted about Demos about what we like, don’t like, and other thoughts regarding them. Check out our podcast, either on Sasy’s blog, or on Youtube – links below.

OOTD + Podcast – Daily/Popup Sales Events

Sasy and I recently did a podcast on Daily/Popup Sales events.  Event creators, designers, and shoppers all are part of the cycle of shopping, and it’s in everyone’s best interest that a certain flow is maintained. I think we touched on a few areas where there is a lot to reflect upon.

Linden Living: Moving In

40779447573_226655b1fa_k.jpgMoving Day by Whimsy Winx, on Flickr

Hi everyone. So my mailbox is fixed, and I’ve got a proper Linden Home again. Now, comes the fun part, deciding which home style I like, and getting my furniture in.  This has been pretty difficult. I’m leaning very heavily on the Winchester, and currently moving into that one for now.

The biggest issue I see is how to divvy up enough LI for the space so I can have a bit of everything I think I need. I’m very sure I want a kitchen, living room, dining, and outdoor recreation. It’s the upstairs bedroom that is conflicting me, I would like a bedroom as well as a work room which I can use it for both.

46956662414_afa8a83b8a_k.jpgWindow Treatment by Whimsy Winx, on Flickr

Initially I decided since I had 5 areas to decorate I would evenly assign LI to each space with a starting point of about 70 LI per space. Seemed simple enough, if I was happy with an area that was still under 70 LI I could reassign additional LI elsewhere or keep as I might want to spawn cars as needed.

This is actually quite a challenge for me considering I’ve lived with nearly whole sims to rez out as much as I please for 10 years. I’ve already started installing a kitchen, and plan on working it out from there.

The Lindens keep teasing us with news that more homes are coming soon. I’ve been watching the map and they certainly are making progress. They’ve also updated to include security orbs, as when they went live the ban lines were ugly and as you can imagine, that just ruined the esthetics here quick. So the solution was to feature security orbs, and there are quite a few rules for them as we don’t want to suddenly find ourselves returned home from the street on a bike ride, or sent home when flying over (personal aircraft are quite popular here). So that should help at least keep my hot tub clean. For more information about the security orbs check the forum announcement from Patch Linden here.

Also, shout out to my fellow neighbors on Bellisseria – keep it weird. The random t-rex, the police chases, broken down buses..ya’ll make my day. But stay out of my hot tub.

Ya know, you’re probably thinking right now, why is does that place have a slurl and not this place? Look, do you see all those stores? I didn’t plan on having to slurl all of them. I certainly didn’t think that out well when thinking ooh I can have an outfit change and take another photo. I haven’t blogged in like 6 months so I’m rusty and over ambitious. But I assure you, all of the above stores can be found in search or marketplace, and if not there they’re closed. I might feel guilty and come back and populate them more but search is right there.

Hair Fair 2017 – Amacci

Hair Fair 2017 - Amacci

Amacci released 3 hairstyles at Hair Fair 2017 .  Lani is pretty short cut, a little tousled, with a side part.  Inia is a very high voluminous pony tail. The HUD allows you to toggle 4 different bangs/fringe so you can have bangs/fringe off, parted, to the side and longer, and blunt cut.  Feray is a long hair style that runs to the back and front and the HUD allows you to choose between both sides forward – while still being down you back as well, or one side to the front. The hair color I used in this post is a fade which is available in the Variants, and the Crazy pack. Amacci is located here on the Noirette sim.

Hair Fair 2017 – Tetra

35655425671_5ce2864df2_b.jpgHair Fair 2017 – Tetra by Whimsy Winx, on Flickr

Tetra released 3 hairstyles at Hair Fair 2017. Orange is a braided hair which comes with an over the shoulder option, or down the back.  Mango is like Orange, with full braid, close to head, but is short, does not have the tail that Orange has.  The style is well done for both.  It gives the appearance of a hair that has a lot of volume to it, and it works very well for Mango as just an updo.  Cherry is a long hair, to the back, and over one shoulder.  All styles here are 1 of 2 red tones from the Balayage pack. Tetra is located here on the Brunette sim.

Sunny Day

Sunny Day

With summers end nearly here, I will be sad to pack up the beach house, but I always look forward to autumn. I’m making sure I wear as much of my swimwear as possible to get summer out of my system. Today I’m wearing cool bikini I picked up at Mon Cheri. I snagged the fatpack, so I can mix and match all the amazing patterns. The HUD not only lets you chose the pattern on it, but the tassels and cords as well. This swimsuit fits like a dream on my Slink Physique mesh body, with a fit mesh version especially for it. I coordinated my manicure to match with Flair’s set 49, cause that’s how I roll.

My hair is from LeLutka, and is amazingly long and wavy. There is another hair from the same release available with hair to the side, that I blogged here. I’m wearing League’s Luna skin, with freckles option on my Slink Physique mesh body, and LeLutka’s Aria mesh head. Sunkiss is my favorite skin tone from League, leaving me all over tanned like I’ve spent all summer under the virtual sun.

If you haven’t been to the latest round of Collabor88 you need to go. It’s their birthday round, loaded with tons of stores participating. I picked up Soy’s Dreamy Hanging Chair there. It’s perfect for finishing off the summer in. I’m wearing Mon Cheri’s Sachi Flaire Dress, it comes with sleeves (not shown) also. It’s available in a variety of solids, and these fun tie dye prints. They also include a belt with HUD so you can change belt colors.

My hair is is Laila from Mina. It’s at Festival of Sin II at the moment. I love the height at the back, and how full it is. My shoes are Essenz’ Marrakesh wedges, and they are available at her main store. They feature a metal circle emblem on the front of the strap, with a HUD for silver or gold option.

Let’s Go Surfing

Let's Go Surfing

This was the summer for swimwear. I think I collected it all summer.  Baiastice released their Fringe Micro Bikini in June, and it should be considered a summer staple in your wardrobe. It’s available in a wide range of colors, my two favorite are the emerald green and this coral I’m wearing. There are also fun prints to consider too! It’s hot! My hair is from Olive, and was a release at Hair Fair 2015. It’s long and tousled.

Inside my beach house from Haikei, I’ve got Cheeky Pea’s Boho Dreamtime Hammock as the perfect way to laze away a summer day. This cool fan I picked up from Toiz’s gacha at Shiny Shabby, along with Nomad’s gacha drawers and chest. I love the pillow seat on them and lanterns. Other fun gacha items I’ve picked up this past summer are Dust Bunny’s Fresh Strawberry water, and hanging flower pot. Apple Fall sells the perfect potted fern, you can pick it up on marketplace without having hunt around the store for it. Other gacha goodies from Apple Fall are Neva’s Kitchen Shelf, Retro Radio, and Step Ladder Table.

Sweet Escape

Sweet Escape

This was summer of fantastic releases that really filled out my wardrobe, and my house full of beachy things.  I picked up this cute boho blouse at Mimikri. She’s updated her store, if you haven’t been in awhile. Nothing but mesh now, and she always has something neat there. I really liked this top, and am wearing it with Blueberry’s Elina Shorts. They have a side string, and a really nice shape to them. I bought the fatpack, so I can wear them with anything. The fatpack HUD lets you easily pick from all the colors, and even recolor the side strings.

My hair is from Slink, who recently installed a new store. The rebuild is contemporary, sleek, and still has a bit of a retro feel to it. I really like it.  She’s redefined the interior space to specific sections making the place very easy to navigate. My Trinidad sandals are from Essenz. She’s has so many fantastic sandals, but these are my favorites.  My beach house is full of all kinds of fun gacha’s I played all summer, and some favorites I have picked up over the past year or so at a variety of events, and stores.
