Horseback Riding

Horseback RidingThere is more to Second Life than just shopping or hitting the clubs.  This month I have set out to explore some new activities I can enjoy in SL.  First thing that came to my mind was horseback riding.  I took horseback riding lessons as a kid, but ever since I fell off a horse, it’s been a bit traumatic and I have not been able to overcome my fear.  Obviously, RL and SL experiences in horseback riding are very different, and involve very different set of skills, but I thought it would be fun to give it a try.  I found a few places in SL where one can go horseback riding.  AKK Horse Ranch offers a free horse you can demo five times.  This is where I picked up my demo horse to ride around.  After a few practice rides (literally less than one minute), I checked out a few sims with horse riding trails.  I quite enjoyed Serenity Mountain & Sea, where I ended up taking my pictures today. The outfit I wore for the occasion is from Bare@Rose.  It comes with everything, the equestrian hat, outfit, and even riding boots.  I love this store!  I know I can always find something appropriate for any occasion.  Anyways, horseback riding in SL is quite interesting.  I may even consider actually buying my own horse to ride on a regular basis.  😛

Into the Darkness

Into the DarknessHalloween is definitely influencing my daily outfits these days.  I have been wearing fantasy wear on a daily basis!  Today’s look is a preview to Bare@Rose Halloween hunt item.  The hunt will start soon.  The VIP group members were given one day early access.  It’s a bit different from other hunts I have done.  There is a story line, a mini adventure with a series of tasks to complete. Once you complete your tasks you will have gathered all the parts of the outfit I am wearing, both male and female versions. It’s fairly easy and instructions/hints come in multiple languages! It literally took me only a few minutes to complete, so give it a go!  One more thing, make sure you pick up the free Halloween gift from alaskametro<3 at anyBody.  It’s a dark lipstick perfect for Halloween, and it comes with multiple appliers and tattoo layers for the classic avatars!

**  THE HUNT at BARE@ROSE has started… It will end on Nov 6, so hurry!

Dark Angel

Dark AngelOctober is such a fun month in SL, with a lot of Halloween themed sims and events.  A lot of designers have been releasing new goodies for Halloween, tempting me to spend my limited shopping budget!  Anyways, I have been playing around in fantasy wear picking out costumes for Halloween.  I personally think one of the best places to shop for a Halloween costume is Bare@Rose.  As I have mentioned before, Bare@Rose is the one store I know I will always find something suitable for any occasion, just like the outfit I am wearing today.  It’s a complete outfit which includes the wings, the accessories, and boots as well.
Dark AngelThe hair is new from Tukinowaguma.  I picked it up at We Love Roleplay.  It’s not your everyday wear type of hair but great to have in you inventory for those haute couture look or role play.  The make up is also new.  It’s from Swallow, available at Kustom9.  I am not wearing the base skin included in the applier, but just used the make up options on my regular skin.  The make up options were inspired by movie witches.  How fun!  There were so many other stuff I wanted to buy at Kustom9 but the sim was filled with shoppers so decided to stop by at a later date.  I am loving this look!  I think I will wear it around for few more days~

Angel of Nightscape

Today I bring you a bit of fantasy.  A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of attending Bare@Rose 10 Year Anniversary Fashion Show where June Dion unveiled several themed outfits for the occasion.  The show was very impressive with the main stage changing according to the theme.  The variety June offers in her store was well captured at the show ranging from kawaii, cyber, fantasy, formal, kimono, and treasure hunt.  All the outfits were out of this world!  The outfit I am wearing today was one of the outfits from the show, “Angel of Nightscape”.  I am not wearing the necklace and the gloves that come with it but you can still see the grandeur of the outfit.  You can detach the wings and city nightscape and simply just wear the dress if you are overwhelmed.  The dress is gorgeous on its own.

Please click here if you want to watch the video of Bare@Rose 10 Year Anniversary Fashion Show.  FYI, the show is in Japanese.

(UPDATE: Tori Heart was kind to send me the video links to the US fashion show.  It’s two parts, click here and here to view.  Thank you, Tori!)

Self Control

fantasy01sm

Self control is indeed what I need these days.  After my recent return to SL, I have been going crazy with all the releases I missed over the years. SL has changed so much, and most of my clothes and shoes have become very outdated.  Before hitting new stores on the grid, I have been checking out the stores I am familiar with such as Bare Rose.  I believe it was one of the very first stores I spent my hard earned camping money.  I was hoping to find outfits for my new updated Maitreya mesh body but I was out of luck.  I did bring home this mesh outfit “Self Control”.  It’s circa early 2013, but I still love the colors and and the avant garde feel.  I had a bit of hard time fitting it properly to my shape, especially on the hips.  My shape has very narrow hips already but I had to adjust it even smaller.  I am old school so I am used to adjusting my shape to fit the clothes properly but with fitted mesh available I may become lazy!  The make up I am wearing is from Madrid Solo, a new store for me.  The store carries amazing range of make ups.  This one is a group gift. I believe its free to join.

I Have a Job!!!

I have a job in SL!  I have just joined the Bax Coen team to be trained up as a Customer Service Representative. I am just a trainee at this point, but it’s great to be working again.  Bax Coen is one of my favorite shoe stores in SL, so I am excited to be part of the team.  To celebrate I put together a casual look wearing one of my favorites from Bax Coen.
