So run there before it is too late!

I am also wearing a skirt from Mischief, which is unfortunately closing its doors. The fatpack is 100 L$. It is your chance to get great pieces of clothing for a bargain before it is gone forever.

Not So Original

Hello,

I know, you’ve seen everything on this picture in plenty of other blogs. I know, NotSoBad riads have been pictured everywhere. I know… BUT sorry, that is what quality does. No matter how many times you will see some items, they deserved to be seen, shown, blogged about, again and again. I don’t blog to be orginal, I do it to show the shapes I create, having fun dressing them with things I like and taking pictures. I just hope you’ll like them too.

Now, a tip for this Maitreya’s top. At first, it didn’t work good with the shape i was wearing, which was petite with a short torso and wide hips. That is a problem with sculpty prims that you cannot always mod or resize them to fit your shape, either it was too large at the top of the prim, either too small at the bottom. I’ve tried the taller version of the shape, as I didn’t want to make smaller hips, which has a longer torso and voilĂ , it was all it needed to fit perfectly.

Hi Alice! New Shape out

Hello,

I’ve added a new shape to the ** Dunes ** collection. Alice is a realistic shape, 1m74 (5’9”) tall, very versatile, whatever the look you want for her, you should be satisfied with her long mysterious eyes, pulpy lips and cute small nose. Her round face has still some hints of her teens. This low 20 girl has had a classical education but don’t think she is too wise; once she goes out, she will rock you out all night long. A second taller (1m92 6’4”) shape is also included in the box aswell as a style card and bald base if you want to look exactly like the model.

70’s Diet

Hello,

sometimes weird things may be associated in your mind because of a special memory. I remember my brother and I sitting at the dinner table, looking with a disgusted face at what my mother had served us. She was on a diet at that time and had decided who would eat the same… At the same moment, there was an episode of Starsky and Hutch on TV in which a girl was jogging with a mini short. Since that day, Starsky and Hutch equals diet food for me.

My late 70’s girl look is made of several special releases from The Dressing Room Blue which has a new collection, Stumblebum Brigade or Project Themeory.

My Uptown Girl

Hi,

I hope you all know this fantastic song from Billy Joel, “Uptown Girl”. For the youngers, there is a version from Westlife but… definately, go for the original! I had fun watching the video clip from Billy Joel yesterday so I decided to inspire today’s post from it. A big thank you to Ernesto Pennell, a great friend of mine, who helped me with these pictures. With such a downtown man, wouldn’t you all want to be an uptown girl?

“Uptown girl
She’s been living in her uptown world
I bet she’s never had a backstreet guy
I bet her momma never told her why

I’m gonna try for an uptown girl
She’s been living in her white bread world
As long as anyone with hot blood can
And now she’s looking for a downtown man
That’s what I am ”

… “Uptown girl
You know I can’t afford to buy her pearls
But maybe someday when my ship comes in
She’ll understand what kind of guy I’ve been
And then I’ll win

And when she’s walking
She’s looking so fine
And when she’s talking
She’ll say that she’s mine” …

here’s a mix of discounted items from Pacadi Jasha at the Golden shopping sim, everything is 65 L$ for this week-end, hair is 50 L$ friday offer from Lamb! and the shoes are my all time favorite from Maitreya. Under the dress, i am wearing the top part of the 50 L$ lingerie set from (epoque). The eyes are one more generous offering from Tuli Asturias and are free! (maybe you have to be part of the VIP group to get them but the fee to enter it is well worth it as you get so many gifts. At the moment, you can have a free skin not yet released too). If you want to have jewels eyes, run to Tuli, they are really great.

Surf Coffee

Hello,

One of the great aspects of Second Life is you can dress the way you like, you are always only one TP away from the perfect place to wear those great new items. So, even if it is cold, rainy, windy outside, no worry, put those great summer clothes and go for a walk on a tropical sim.

On the rant of the day side… I’ve been doing like everyone and purchased those new Nardcotix shoes… ok, great marketing campaign … but now, seriously, next time, to spend 975 L$ on shoes, I won’t come back to that store. The quality is not what i was expecting, talking about the sculpty with a gap between the foot and the shoe patform, the shadows, or the hud and to match them with the skin… I’ve spent 30 minutes on that, which now takes most of the time only 2 minutes with other shoes, and I just couldn’t have them to match. For 400, 500, ok, I wouldn’t mind, but 975 L$? that is overpriced. They look good… if you don’t stare too close at them.

N.B.: Glitterati is having a sale so TP there for great poses.

Relationships in SL

Hello,

I am a bit late on the following blogger challenge: “How hard do you think it is to find a relationship in SL? If you have an SL relationship, have you met in the physical world? Would you meet them? Do you think it would change your SL relationship if you met?” but I felt like writing a bit about it. So far, i cannot say it turned out right for me. I haven’t really looked forward to relationships but it just happened. Maybe I am too naive but i tend to believe that when people say “I like/love you”, they mean it. At least, I wouldn’t say anything like that if i don’t mean it.

So what’s wrong with men in SL? One of my theory is that, as there is 1 RL man for 5 to 10 RL women, they just have way too many choices. Why would they care about hurting your feelings as they will easily find someone else? SL makes it so easy to cheat, to lie, people just don’t bother anymore to play fair. Add to this people feel so much safer behind their computer they forget about you are someone too behind your laptop.

I am tired of the seduction game people keep playing all the time. You want to be my friend? Great, let’s be friend. Don’t try to seduce me, especially if you already have a partner, thank you. You want more? Well, maybe, if you have no partner, it is up to you, but i need honesty and no cheating. Why do men always have to play with feelings and be ambiguous? Frankly, none of them is even being orginal: “you’re my best friend, i feel so close to you. I’m fuckin Nr 34 but you know, you are the one i really like/love”. Worse is when they come to you to cry cause Nr 34 is cheating on them… Trying to be nice, you comfort them and… boom, they kiss you. Urgh, would I be Nr 35? NO THANK YOU! Let’s only be friends… That’s usualy the part when they start sulking on you and go back to Nr 34 or move on to Nr 36 who was already IMing them at the same time…

I have had 4 partners in SL. In the end, I feel like 3 of them have played badly with my feelings, asking a lot when they were giving very little. 2 asked me about RL while they were already cheating on me in SL. One still doesn’t understand why i have declined his offer to meet, by the way… So about meeting in RL? I would need to be able to trust men in SL for this. So far, it hasn’t happened.

And, in the end, while they are with Nr 36, you are still left alone… ranting maybe you should have been Nr 35.

So about relationships in SL? I’ve learned to trust noone.
