Something’s wrong with me – I love black and big dogs

FINALLY I found my new dream house. It is *Y’s HOUSE* OMISE001 (only main body) and I think it is just perfect for my needs (more pics later when I have time to decorate). I want open spaces and lots of light and grunge/raw/shabby chic textures. This cutie has it all. It has also a small kitchen/bar area and an awning with multiple textures. Small house is all I need, my dear old grass bubble (from Harmoni) is quite tiny and I always want to maintain some outdoor space free to wander:)

Wild but not free

If you wear animal prints, you have to travel to the jungle, right? These off shoulder tops* were the most perfect hot-hot-hot jungle outfit with high waist leggings and spiky high heels. As you can see, I am cool as an  iceberg despite all the wild animals around me. That’s very Finnish.

Pose Fair 2014: Feeling free!

DM_etiquette_nude_muokattu

 

Pose Fair 2014 is very well organized event: there was no lag! If I read my welcome NC right, it is limited for 30 people at the time.

I was very picky and bought only six poses.  More to come, I want to valuate my findings and post them one of the time.

When I saw DM’s Etiquette pose, it was clear I wanted to do nude pic with it. Especially position of the head is quite awesome.

 

5 sick cats and 1 new mainland plot

Ok, I am a bad person. I forgot all my cats without food. My old playhouse has been a cat hospital and for a moment I was very remorseful and devoted nurse.

Well, it did not work out. My neighbor wanted to buy the entire sim and I was not comfortable any more…so I sold my “new” plot. AND bought another one right away. Now I have very odd sized 3072 m2 with 703 prims. I have not yet decide which way I want to live so I just have platform up in the sky. Because I want to be a better person my first priority was to build a safe place for my sick cats. Now they have food, a shelter and me having more time to take care (aka going to the KittyCats Store).

Two surprise kittens also…I found them when I was cleaning my old property. I certainly have to be more aware what is going on.

 

Empty space meets empty mind

Busy in RL, lazy at SL.

I have a new skydome, but there’s no house, just five sick cats. I have “no time” to go KittyCats Main Store and buy food for them. I shopped a new skybox, but there’s no furniture.

I don’t remember when I last time changed my SL-clothes.

My inventory is a total mess. I can not find anything so I get frustrated and buy some new stuff which I do not need.

Basically I just stand at the middle of my skydome or skybox and play with Firestorm Phototools. I have no vision what so ever: I do not know what to do with my second life.

 

 

Social media teacher hideaway

OMGosh I have been out of here two months! Busy IRL, teaching social media 😀 Today I was able to sneak out to my virtual home to “relax”. Well, no time to relax in either worlds.

All my cats are sick, they just sleep under blankets thermometer on the mouth. For sure I am not going to buy recovery vitamin bottle 290 L$ per cat. They just have to get well on their own.

When I last had time to decorate and live my SL, it was winter and I had winter skydome.

talvipenkki3Goodbye coldness, goodbye snow, welcome spring! I took this picture very quick, edited just a little with my favorite online tool, Pixlr Express. I love the feeling of this pic…almost like someone has secretly taken it when Minh was deep in thought.

springforest1_001I just bought a new skydome, now looking the right house to place on it. And I really really really need to get some new clothing! Maybe new hair? Hunts? Building projects? Uuuh…exhausted already.

 

 

Comic strip skin

Fingerpori is very popular Finnish comic strip by Pentti Jarla. My new skin is DeeTalez‘s Jarla skin – and I can not stop giggling every time I wear this skin. Fingerpori’s humour is based on verbal misunderstandings and puns.

Yesterday I was a bit anarchistic and bought the skin through the closed Cosmetic Fair doors – could not wait. My timezone is 10 hours ahead SL time;)

First three pics: Jarla V2 A blonde Nordic, Jarla V2 A brown Nordic, Jarla V2 A black Nordic. No makeup, no tintable lip layer, just my normal FTL Natural Lashes.

Jarla 3 browsMakeup d. Select eyeshadow Lilac. Tintable age lines are way too much – I have nothing like that IRL. But I do want to keep looking realistic way to show my age (46) inworld…jarlakollaasi1Nordic skin, nordic background – and tintable lip layer brightness 3. I want to keep my eyebrows black – they are very dark also IRL. It is nice combination with blue eyes and blondish/light-brownish hair. If I want to keep my mixed reality balance I has to either blonde my RL hair or get darker hair in SL:)jarlalips3_001

Oh no! Appliers please!

ohno

As you can see, my new SLink hands do not fit perfectly with my present skin (Mynerva Plain Jane English Rose).  And believe me, I’ve tried to fit them! For hours!

My plan B was to get a new skin. Or “new” new, from my inventory. But I soon realized all my old skins looked old-fashioned and they had too much going on. I want my skin to be like blank canvas I can paint…add layers if I want more make up. Realistic look is also important, too smooth skin is boring. I don’t want to look like a doll. If the skin has puffy eyelids, it is mine:) Mature skins usually do not work but I found tintable age lines which I think are useful in case I need RL matching look;)

Plan C: find a new skin with proper SLink appliers! And I did. After  marketplace searching I found DeeTalez Jarla. I teleported to the mainstore and was ready to grab it when I realized it is pre-released at the Cosmetic Fair starting today. So now I am here, waiting Americans get up and open the damn event:)

But at least my butt still looks nice!

 

Swinging workers

I’ve had tomboy feeling for a while so I have used jeans and boots and sweaters mostly. Many items are from COCO‘s winter sale.

I have pretty nice collection of boots, cowboy, suede, leather and fur…I can not resist quality boots – or any other shoes. LRD’s Unisex Worker Boots are easy to wear and not too expensive (550L). They also remind my favorite RL boots, Dr Martens 8 eye boots. Mine are almost 10 years old but still good looking.

Unisex Workers come with an easy HUD, one click and you can change the colour. I have V3 and it has 14 colour options, but LRD also has patterned versions.
