Laundry Day

Laundry Day

Sunday has rolled around again, which means it’s time for chores like laundry. In Second Life, I don’t often choose lingerie, but when I do, I prefer Bakes on Mesh for easy layering. They’re great for layering under other clothes to keep my look tasteful.

I’ve also made a point of wearing actual underwear lately, instead of just turning on the alpha on my pelvis.

Recently, I picked up a charming Nyla bra and panties set from Ison, and guess what? It’s a group gift, and joining the Ison group is free! When I first wore this set, I noticed the nipple area was quite prominent. But no worries — I just used the Bakes on Mesh add-ons from Maitreya and everything looked much smoother.

It’s pretty interesting in Second Life how some clothes really go into detail in certain areas, if you get what I mean! Thankfully, some thoughtful designers offer solutions to soften those details.

Friday

Happy Friday, everyone in Second Life! I’m excited about this new set of poses I found. The Erin pose & anim pack from Goyo comes with cute headphones, perfect for enjoying music or snapping fun photos. What I appreciate most is that each pose has an animation, plus a flipped version. However, I did notice my fingers were not positioned perfectly in some poses, which made me tweak them using the poser in the Black Dragon viewer. It’s not my usual viewer, but it’s pretty useful for these adjustments.

Ever put on a skin and felt like it could use a bit more shine? I found this Highlighter set by Izzie’s that offers lots of options to add a nice glow to your skin. The skin that I’m wearing, Emery from Glam Affair, already looked good, but I couldn’t resist adding a bit more highlight to areas like the eyes, forehead, and the area just above the lip.

Hello from the sandy shores of Sillywood! This adorable little beach and boardwalk spot is the absolute best for a casual walk or snagging some great pics for your blog. I’ve got a thing for beachy scenes in Second Life, and boardwalks? Yes, please!

So today, I started to tidying up my inventory a bit (I didn’t get very far), but I did find lots of cute items that I bought recently. I decided to mix and match some of my faves from last month with a few fresh finds from this weekend’s sales events. This Mattie Long Sweater Dress from Ison is everything! The color choices are fab, and it’s comes with two HUDs that lets you switch up the under shirt or sweater colors. And these Worn Block Sneakers Stickers Edt. by Semller? Utterly adorable and a steal during the sale.

Seaside Sweets Shop

Seaside Sweets Shop

Hello from the charming Seaside Sweets Shop, lovingly decorated by the talented Fay Starlight. This Traditional Linden Home has been transformed into a delightful sweet shop featuring cozy decor and an abundance of complimentary treats and beverages.

I’m fond of the adorable kawaii cafes scattered throughout Bellisseria and hope that the moles will grace us with many more such quaint spots across the continent. To me, the essence of a vibrant community encompasses more than just living spaces; it includes retail establishments and perhaps even a quaint chapel.

Lily Bell

Lily Bell

The inspiration for my outfit today is Lily Bell, a character from one of my favorite shows. Tan isn’t usually my top picks in SL, but I chose the tan pants and a white blouse cos it reminds me of one of Lily’s outfits.

I bought these items from the ISON x Rowne Collection, it is a limited edition collection and a collaboration between two brands. I think it’s a bold move to offer these items for a limited time only, so if you’re reading this post a month from now, they’re no longer available. I read Sasy’s post about the collection before buying, and I must say that I am slightly disappointed they didn’t offer sizing for some of the major bodies on the grid.

Impulsively, I want to fatpack these things cos they’ll be gone forever! But I know that I rarely wear the same outfit twice, so I picked out two pieces that I love from the collection and chose a color for each. The Brito blouse I can pair with skirts and so many other things. I desperately need more pants in SL, so the Ondria pants are just the perfect addition to my wardrobe. I actually wanted to fatpack these until I took a closer look at the crotch area and noticed some really unsightly discoloration in the texturing; it just looked dirty…. and that’s not an area that should appear dirty, lol. On some of the darker colors, it’s not as noticeable but it was super noticeable on the pink color. I would show you guys to confirm that it’s not just my computer, but overall I am happy with the tan color pants I got, since it matches the discoloration (yellowish brown).

Lily Bell

Overall, I think the collection is definitely worth checking out. Whether you like slim fitting gowns, or outfits, there’s something for most tastes. To be honest, the collection reminds me of my work clothes, very basic colors and nicely tailored.

What I’m Wearing:

ISON x Rowne – Brito Blouse (White)
ISON x Rowne – Ondria Pants (Tan)
Truth Hair – Tempest
Ricielli – Wendy High Heels
LaGyo – Siroune Ring (Gold)
