Appreciation…

MirrorWater_002

 

I had planned to do a post on an absolutely gorgeous dress I purchased at Zaara, but since I have this photo ready right now I thought I’d go ahead and post this first.  I haven’t worn system layers in quite some time.  Today, I was bumming around my house (low on Lindens, as usual) and I got a group notice from Sweet Distractions saying that anybody who came to the store before 5 pm SLT would get to pick out one free item.  Like I said, I typically stick with mesh, but I saw this little polka dot swimsuit, and I felt a little nostalgic…. Thank you to Tocy at Sweet Distractions for my new bikini.  I haven’t worn a swimsuit in ages, and it inspired me to actually get a little blogging done tonight.  You can’t go wrong with that!

So, with my new swimsuit on and the necklace (that I had been wearing with the dress) from Zaara, I started bouncing around the grid looking for a place to take a picture.  I found the Cave Rua Water Gardens and decided to try out the mirror water tutorial by Strawberry Singh (f0r the first time…).  I am fairly happy with the way the picture turned out, but I also look forward to the next one being better.  So…thanks also to Strawberry Singh

I made a skin switch.  I updated my Slink feet to use the avatar enhancements, but the skin that I use most often doesn’t have a HUD out for them yet.  In fact, I didn’t have any recent skins from any of the places listed on the Slink Avatar Enhancement System Customer Information page.  So….I just picked a link at random and went to Izzie’s.  Shown is Izzie’s Geanna skin in Sunkissed.  I wish I had found Izzie’s sooner.  I feel so sweet and adorable in this skin.  Now I can stop fussing over tinting my mesh feet.  I was on a bit of a budget after the skin purchase, so I slipped on the Aussie Thongs in White that I bought a couple of weeks ago.

I hadn’t really had a chance to check out the new items at Collabor88 this month, so I went over there to check things out.  I simply grabbed the first dress that rezzed for me, which happened to be this Mesh Tentacle Dress in Acid Lake by The Sea Hole.  I knew I wanted this dress before I went there…I just didn’t know which color.  I love how clean and flawless this dress is.  Some mesh is just….crap, so it’s always nice to find mesh pieces created with care down to the teensy details.

The photos featured here were taken at Bubbles in Wonderland.  I was in GIMP with SL running, and upon coming back to SL, I found these two hovering around me.  I said, “Hello,” and the female av said, “We thought you were Alice.”  o.O   ….ANYWAY, I told them I was taking photos and they offered to be in a picture with me.

Return to Innsmouth

innsmouth_cocacola_001I returned to Innsmouth today, which was where I took the photos for my previous post (One person’s trash…).  It was fun shooting photos in the old coastal town last night, so I thought I’d share some photos of the sim without me standing in front of everything.  Enjoy!
