Some  shopping events are about to open this weekend and bring a new round of madness. The Arcade Gacha is having their 1 year birthday party starting Sunday and I wish you all the luck getting and in and slapping yourself silly on the machines. I am not even going to try to get in the first 14 days when it is open. And I promised myself I am NOT going to buy stuff I never use. If you want some pre-shopping fun there here is

FaMESHed next round is also opening this weekend and I can’t wait for that. FaMESHed is a platform for  original mesh designers on clothing , shoes and furniture and a must see for me every new round.
(FreshFace) came out with a clean crispy skin called Lilac and I just love it. Dress and Boots are from * miel and I am a huge miel fan for some time now. They entered the mesh arena presenting high quality and the good thing is there designs are with color changing huds so more colors in 1 buy without the piling up in your inventory. They also participate  in the Fifty Linden Friday circle once in a view weeks and that is when I got this cute little dress.
Enjoy your weekend have fun while you shop until you drop.

EXPLORING SECOND LIFE MEME

This weeks Meme from Strawberry Singh is great !!!
The Exploring Second Life Meme is simple. Be our travel guide in second life take us 5 destinations and tell us why you think this place is worth a visit. Berry made a new Flickr group as well the only rule are , when you post a picture there to add the link of  the location and only show pictures of the location and no close up of avi’s.
On the right side of this blog I made a header SL Travel Guide some weeks ago with blog and website links from second life tour guides and  I added the new flickr group to that list as well.
There are so many places worth a visit so many creative and talented designers who made landscaping and decorating there  hart and soul business in here. I made my short list telling you I had to think hard because I got to  know a lot of great places , I started to travel more since I put that on my second life bucket list some weeks ago.

Flickr   Location

First stop Virtual Decay The City. I come here since I am a blogger and that is 3 years now. The Virtual Decay Flickr group is one of the first groups I joined. The look and feel of this place is urban. Not an innocent classy sweet uptown city look but a grunge “look out in an alley when it is dark”look. The details of  are  very well made and the textures they used for walls and graffiti are amazing. If and when I am looking for a scenery with an edgy look I always end up here. Huge reason as well is the fact you got rez rights That is why I give this place   a picture perfect ✰ ✰✰✰✰

This place called Tableau  is one of my favorite shopping destinations because different brands have there shops here and that is how I end up on this sim to begin with. The look and feel of this place screams Summer. I’ve never bin to Mexico and I don’t know if they had that country in mind making this place but I get the feeling I want to go to Mexico on a vacation  when I visit this place.
There are so many different angles to make nice pictures from and your know what ?!
Rez rights here a  picture perfect  ✰ ✰✰✰✰ for me

Flickr  Website  Location

Next destination was Izzie’s place. Not only is Izzie a very talented designer and owner of the brand Izzie’s but she is a very gifted landscape artist as well. In the past she changed the look and feel of the outdoor of her shop every season Visiting her place is always an inspiration for me, being a beginner myself in landscaping and decorating. And this time she outdone herself stepping outside the 4 season concept , making her place looking like an African savanna with wild life and great far sides.
No rez rights shop owners can’t be to carfull with that so that is why I give this place for picture perfect ✰✰✰✰

Flickr  Website Location ( will be add on a later date )

Next stop I went  to Izzie’s twin sisters place  It all Starts With a Smile  Owner Kaelyn Alecto  and the place is under construction  so no SLURL available. Kae is in the midst a very labour intensive proses right now with her B(Boy)FF Maxx to make the place look like an Autumn heavens haven of peace and fun. She gave me permission to take a picture of this lovely playground that is finished already. Because Kae and Maxx are photographers themselves they build this place so other people can use this place to take pictures that is also the reason they give rez rights so perfect for pose balls and pose stands. Rules are simple use your common sense and please don’t hop on your pose balls to have pixel seks.
Picture perfect ✰ ✰✰✰✰

Last stop is a trip back home to my own little piece of heaven in second life.
                                            *** Beautiful  4  Seasons ***
 I just finished decorating made the place Autumn ready and I am pleased with the end result
 Every change is an up hill battle on the prims but mesh is my new ally to reduce the number of prims I use But still it seems  I never have enough so call me Inkie the prim junkie.
If you like to visit to take a look  you are more then welcome and if you want to take pictures be my guest but I can not open the rez rights 24/7 that is not allowed on my place under the currant tier rules. If you visit and see that I am online drop me an IM I will be very happy to open up the rez rights for a while so you have time to take your pictures. I promise I wont be in your picture taking business while your are working. Does  this place deserve a picture perfect ✰ ?  I would be a  poor judge on that  and leave it up to you to decide what you think  Leave a comment in this post for critique, recommendations  or other comments. If and when you make pictures here I would be a happy girl if you show the pictures to me.

 

☂ INKIE IN THE RAIN ☂

Although I am trying to hold on to Summer in real life as long as possible in second life I got leafs blowing in my head already. Today was my lucky day went to a beautiful urban sim called Mad City.
Mad City brings you Room 326 – a murder mystery with a grid-wide hunt. Only during July – August. Brought to you by MadPea Games, sponsored by NY Healthscape.
In some parts of this city it rains so I found myself a raining machine without prims for my own place as well @ Dwelling Quay called the Best Weather Box. It can make snow as well but I don’t want to think about Winter for some months.
I posed myself on the middle  of the street to take a picture of myself  and here comes my lucky part  of the day. Saka Infinity asked me very friendly if he had permission to make a picture of me and me being the narcissistic pixel personality as I am  said yes to that request. And he did an amazing job !!
Picture number 1 and 3 in this post are done by Saka  the only thing I did was add some rain brushes in photoshop. His Original pictures on Flickr are looking better so take a look. Thank you so much for the great pictures Saka * Kisses on your nose*

42 SECOND LIFE GROUPS CHALLENGE

OMG I am so behind on my bloggers to do list it is no not funny anymore. Due to a RL demanding job and draining energy cause of that and I am in the midst of a change of season on my second life place. I love Autumn but damn falling leafs and making it look like fall is a lot of work !! Spots or angles that looked great in the Summer don’t look that nice in Autumn colors so basically I needed to start from the beginning. I removed my beach area and made a little shopping street with an urban feel to it and I am very happy with the end result. Of course there are not real shops where you  actually can buy something. I made a music store and a vintage clothing shop in progress. If you want to see for yourself come take a look @

So now Strawberry’s Singh her Monday Challenge and is about the subject I was talking about in an earlier post  on this blog in the beginning of this Month that I was thinking on making some kind of survey on my blog about the use of second life groups. But I thought there was a better way to know on a bigger scale what is happening with the use of groups by telling Berry I had this thought  and maybe it was an idea for her Monday Meme. And you know what she was juggling with this subject herself  so I can not wait to see witch groups are the favorites and why. Thank you Miss Berry for mentioning  me on your post for the link to my blog.

Meme Instructions by Berry herself : Answer the following questions about groups and share some of your favs with us. Don’t forget to leave your link in the comments!

  1. Have you reached the 42 group limit? .Not now as we speak I did a inventory Summer cleaning some weeks ago and did a group cleaning this week so I am on 38 now. Some of the groups are for blogger use others for the fun or educational purpose
  2. Do you do a lot of group hopping to keep up with all the groups you want to stay a part of? Once in a view months I hop and change depends on my current interest I am having in that time. If I am more in to decorating my place I have more furniture and garden shops in my groups and so on.
  3. What makes you want to join a group? To get nice free stuff or get a good discount on items. Next to that is the fact to stay updated about new releases that keeps me in the group as well. Some of my groups are for educational purpose.
  4. A lot of store VIP groups have a group fee which you have to pay to join. How do you feel about paying group fees?  Not having a problem with that at all if the designer is using the group to give high quality gifts as well. Having a problem with it when it is just an advertise group where you find out the designer got a new release I am not willing to pay a fee for only that. I agree with Berry a fee up to L300 I found acceptable
  5. Name a few groups that you are a part of that you feel everyone should look into joining and share your reasons behind that. 

✎…… Fifty Linden Friday  This groups note card is making my Friday the best shopping day in world.

INVENTORY MEME

This weeks Strawberry Singh’s  Monday Meme is  short one  but with a huge impact and great  substance trust me  when it comes to my inventory I got  story’s to tell. In real life I am not a collector and I don’t pile up stuff until my closet explodes. In second life I am a hoarder and hold on to every item I purchased once. 
Second life resident Gracie Kendal started an art project called  Binge & Purge she is going to rez 15000 prims every 2-3 weeks and deleting them all after the weeks are over.
She is going to do that until after this 5 months ‘performance’ the only things she will have left are the clothes on Gracie’s back. The performance starts Sunday August 11th at 9am slt. Come on over and be there when she rez 15000 items from her inventory. Be part of the experience.
Reading the blogpost about this I got shivers down my spine. Deleting my inventory treasurers  so rigorously ? Holding nothin…. read …HOLDING NOTHING back for safe keeping ?? Gracie you are my hero doing this …. some kind of second life  Ghandi letting go of all your gridly goods.

Back to Berry’s Monday Meme  here are the meme instructions by Berry herself and the questions to answer

Meme Instructions: Copy and paste the questions and answers below, delete my answers and input your own. Don’t forget to leave a comment with your link to Berry her inventory post

  1. What is your current inventory number? – 82.225 I did a Summer cleaning some time ago I had almost double the  figures. On a rainy afternoon I suddenly was infected with the deleting bug and got rid of all the  needless ballast. In retrospect I got rid of  some folders that were not supposed to be deleted as well   but my inventory is  more orderly now and I can find stuff so much faster. Made a resolution as well that afternoon that  I will keep my inventory numbers below 85.000. I still got all the sizes in my folders so when I reach my limit I will delete all the large and xl  clothing items 😛
  2. If you had to delete your whole inventory and could only keep one thing, what would it be? –  Recording to Berry 1 folder is considered as 1 thing and I agree with her on this one. Only I am keeping my shoe folder. Marlyn Monroe once said “Give a girl the right shoes and she will conquer the world”.
  3. What is the last thing you purchased? –  The globe you see on the pictures It is from .:Standby Inc:. available @  COLLABOR88  2 year anniversary
  4. Which item do you wear most often? – For some time ( read days here )  I am wearing the IKON Destiny  eyes aqua I am in my blond phase but that can change in a minute.
  5. When you search for the word penis, how many items pop up? – Holding my breath …… 4 items popped up all gestures with funny noises that shout out the fact that I like penis… witch I do so shoot me.
