I’ve been a little slacking off on the blog, not thru loss of interest. Mainly time as I just finished moving my household…one husband, two cats, in real life! I didn’t have access to my gaming computer for 3 days! My god it was horrible. Then my HDMI cable died. Ah life. Anywho, I’m now back! YAY! I wanted to post some stuff I bought recently and loved. This outfit from ms. Chelsea, is, as usual, perfection itself. Mouse looks pretty sexy, if I may say so myself! I added some sleek and sexy hair from Opale, a new to me designer and some new glittery eye shadow from Matt & Gloss. Loving it. The sky high heels are from Glamistry and were an FLF steal. As always all my pictures are on My Flickr. Outfit credits are at the end of the story. Oh and where is Mouse? Check it out after the cut.
What’s up friends? I’m having a lovely walk thru the woods, and I came upon these lovely pups and naturally had to hang out for a bit. Love this dress, it’s from Insomnia, and I love me a pink leather jacket. I also adore the pink/brown combo. It’s a thing with me. The high heeled clogs work beautifully, with a perfect gold filigree accent, from Pure Poison. I focused on the face in the next picture to highlight a fantastic new eye liner from Matt & Gloss, my new fav. You’ll find this “elegant” liner at the Chapter Four Event, note the subtle double line on the inner eye. Last but not least great new hair from Entwined, which I snagged at Fameshed. So me! As always, you can check out ALL my pic on Flickr. Outfit credits are at the bottom of this article. Where in the heck is Mouse this time???? Check it out after the cut!
Ah COCO why do I love you so. It might be that every time I’m looking for a super classic look, you come thru. You restore my faith! This outfit I would wear in real life! (Well not the shoes, I fall over in heels) but the rest – totally. I even HAVE this outfit in RL. A bodysuit and straightleg jeans. I love it. LOVE IT <3. I’ve paired it with new hair from Elikatira, a STEAL for FLF, a cute bag that I finally found an outfit for from inbue, and these stunning heels from Addams that I found at Shoegasm, I mean Shoetopia! As always, you can find all my pictures on Flickr, and outfit credits are after the cut. Make up is from my Catwa HUD and jewelry is an old Dark Mouse set.
And where is Mouse today? A beautiful resort sim…damn I need a vacation…
So, how do you do casual in SL? This is pretty much my go to look, especially if I’m shopping or hanging with friends. Or building, or re-decorating my skybox. I’m literally always redecorating my sky box.
I love this great casual set by miss Chelsea. It fits perfectly. This whole look is pretty much Fifty Linden Fridays (FLF), and if you’re new to SL, you simply must join this group. Great fun can be had for as little as 50L, and you get to discover a whole bunch of new shops in SL. The hair is Wasabi Pills and the flip flops are by Livalle, and if they can’t get you thru the entire SL summer, I don’t know what will! For those not in the know, FLF is a 24 hour sale. The list goes out roughly Thursday evenings, or 12:00 a.m. Friday, and the sale features a variety of shops. The owners of the shop will put out a new OR an older item in a new color or ‘refreshed’ somehow, for the low low price of $50L. It’s a fun sale, and can be even more fun if you take a friend as you teleport around the grid. Have fun! As always, all my pictures can be found on Flickr, and the outfit credits are below the cut!
And where is Mouse taking these pictures?
Okay so this post is not about a crown. It’s about the rare phenomenon of Gacha. Here’s how it goes…I play a gacha, and desperately want a common. I figure it will take me a couple of times. I immediately get 3 rares in a row. I play a gacha, I desperately want the rare…you get the rest. I feel like I have to have my gacha voodoo working better, so that I can fool the gacha into thinking I want the commons and vice versa…or something! Anywho. I played for this lovely jewelry…wanted the necklace. I got 3 rare crowns, and 2 pairs of earrings before someone on plurk said…”Why don’t you wait and get the common on MarketPlace.” DOH! Anywho, I got this beautiful rare crown. It seemed to go really well with some hair I picked up a while ago by Doe, and designer I know from previous brand, in a galaxy far far away! The dress was another gacha. I will be brutally honest. I’m unsure about this dress. The romance of it calls to me, but I could wish for a better texture. The shoes are by the ALWAYS fabulous Ingenue and were snagged at the Arcade. As always the full series of photos are on my flickr, along with tons of other pics by me. The outfit credits are at the bottom of the post!

Ah yes, and so we come to it. The day that my av reminds me of Clueless. It was bound to happen. It’s the hair. Which is FABULOUS. This hair works in so many different ways, and can go with a lot of different looks, but since I love casual in SL, that’s the way we are going! The hair is Amuse Me, by Magika, of course. The totally FUN bag and Umbrella necklace are from Zenith and was a gifty from a plurk friend, Sparkle Skye, check out her Flickr page! The glasses are my own from that old chestnut, Dark Mouse ;-). The hoodie (damn, I love a good hoodie) is from Blueberry, but you’ll have to pick it up at Collabor88. The cargo pants are utter perfection from Rebel Hope, where you literally can never go wrong. The whole series of these pictures are on my Flickr! The outfit credits can be found at the bottom of this article. Happy Shopping!

So I’ve been hunting and hunting for eyes that were…errr…me. And YAY! Finally I found them. And the winner is, Banana Banshee “Hely” eyes. I’m sort of weirdly picky about eyes. I could have gotten a HUD with 1500 different options. I tried a demo and was lost in about 5.5. I have this thing about Mouses’ eyes. First off, her eyes are grey, with a hint of blue. A bit steely. They go well with black hair. I’d actually found a few that were good enough, and even tried some of Banana Banshee’s other eyes, but nothing was working. Then found BB’s latest at Lost & Found and these are perfect. YAY. Oh and they were free. The grey eyes are the demo! The other eye colors are fantastic too so go check them out. The rest of the outfit is a comfy cardigan from BlueBerry and some great hair from Doe, a new to me brand that I find I like a lot and will prolly go hit up the main store, since the last 2 styles have been from Gachas. You can find more pics from this series on my Flickr, and as always, outfit credits are below the pics.
So one of the things about mesh heads that you have to deal with are appliers. An applier, if you don’t know yet (there’s got to be someone lol) are little boxes you attach to your avatar, click a button and walla! You have eye makeup, lashes….lipstick. You also have tattoos! So whilst playing around with my February Powder Pack new appliers, I came across a cute one that puts “lovesick” across your temple. I can’t figure out why it won’t go away. NO WORRIES!!! I’m going with it. Looks cute, though..sad. I’m not currently lovesick, though I imagine that I COULD BE! Any who, the other parts of this post that I love. This jacket combo. I feel like I’m out, wandering around the cold cold world, but snug and warm in my jacket. Other things I like in this post, the hair by Mithral, I wish I could get my hair to look like that in RL, and the tweed boots from S@BBiA. Also, just a reminder, you can find these photos and all my pictures on Flickr!
So I FINALLY found a mesh head that I like, with the help of Bento. It’s been months, I know forgive me. I could find little to be excited about over the last few months. Then one night when I was bored, I decided to try the Catwa Mesh Head, Kimberly, with Bento capabilities. What a great thing. I was able to pick a head that I felt was close to my old SL face, and tweak it to look like ‘me.’ Anywho, here are the results! As always see below for full credits! Pics are also posted to my Flickr!

Haha, only kidding. Check out this SHORT hair cut, it’s dreamy! I’m in love! I call this, ‘earrings’ hair. As in, you can wear your SL jewelry with this hair! I used to scour the world for this kind of hair when I had my shop running full tilt, so I could take pictures that showed my jewelry. We need more earrings hair! I’m also wearing a top from Just Because that I’ve been meaning to blog for a while, but couldn’t find the right things to go with. The capri style Gossip jeans are a steal from The Dressing Room, which is a great venue to find inexpensive pieces for your SL Wardrobe. The Pure Poison shoes are way too cute, and come with a color HUD and damned if I can recall where I got them, but I KNOW it was a recent event. I have no memory for events, its sucks to be me. But fortunately, I do know how to figure out who made something, so the credits for this outfit are below the pictures! You can also check out the full series of pics for this set on my Flickr.
