The Futurewave

There are so many events going on right now there are far too many for me to keep up with. I’d love to be able to have the time to blog all of them but sadly I do not. I am a sucker however for Monica Outlander’s face tattoos so when she popped a few out for the Futurewave event I had to force myself to take a few minutes (okay hours) to shoot and edit a picture for it. These are actually two of her tattoos layered. All three of the tattoos she made for the event are tintable so you can make them whatever color you wish which turns out to be pretty handy.

FacepaintThe new ISON necklace at the new round of Collabor88 has been taunting me since opening day. It took me four different teleports with three different logins to purchase this darned thing.. but I finally got it. There is nothing worse than going negative linden every single time you try to purchase something. The same thing kept happening to me at Fameshed when I was trying to purchase these earrings from Cae. Anyone know why that is happening to me?

I’ve been pretty sick the past few weeks, that coupled with my time constraints has gotten me seriously backed up with blogging. In fact, I don’t know if I am going to actually catch up. I am finally starting to feel better though so hopefully I can catch up with everything before editing week for Love To Decorate!

Berry’s Monday Meme

So Berry’s Monday Meme this week was to have someone else interview you. When I read her blog post I immediately decided that the first person’s name I saw on Plurk I’d ask to do the meme with me. Opened Plurk and WHAM! Bouncer Criss! Well, okay.. I don’t really know him at all. Seen him around on Plurk, he likes my ass it’s quite obvious.. maybe he will say yes… Thankfully he did and we decided to take pictures of each other too!

It was nice getting to hang out with him in pixel form for a little while. I think us not really knowing each other brought a little awkwardness to the situation though. At least it did for me. I am shy (yes! I am no one ever believes me) so when I don’t know someone I am not my normal joking and cutting up self. Lucky for me he tolerated me. Thanks again for saying yes Bouncer!

Shae by B(The picture Bouncer took of me! He didn’t yuck up my nose! He can follow instructions ladies!)

What follows is the interview Bouncer gave me. As you can see, he wasted no time getting down to business.

So Shae, why haven’t we done a naked picture before today?

Shae Sixpence tilts her head curiously to the side, “Well, this escalated rather quickly. I suppose because you’ve never asked me?”

 

 haha, thought I’d break the ice. Ok, serious now. This is the first time we’ve met in world, we have been Plurk friends for a while. What makes you tick when it comes to blogging? What’s your inspiration?

Various things inspire me. There was a time in my SLife when I “had” to blog out of obligation and that unfortunately caused a lot of burn out for me. It’s about the art for me not really the blog. The blog is just my way to go back over time and remember. Random things inspire me. Could be a necklace or a new pair of shoes.. mostly music though.

 

Do you have a certain style you lean towards? Are you more couture, casual? What do you consider “Shae’s Style”

I don’t do well with casual at all. I am more glitter and diamonds than anything. I try my very best to challenge myself but I always end up dressed up like a princess in the end. If I am not overly formal I am normally dressed in what people would consider business clothing. It’s how I dress in my first life so it carries over.

 

I can totally understand that, I am like that a lot. I tend to wear a lot of jeans and shirts in real life, so it kind of carries over to Second Life.

Jeans and a T-shirt is about the only thing I can do casual! Oh, and flippies. Us beach girls can do flippies.

 

Flippies? Is that what you southern girls call them?

I don’t like the way “flip flop” sounds coming out of my mouth. Don’t judge me. It’s far too early in our relationship for that.

 

I know from seeing convo’s in Plurk that you used to model. Did you start blogging before or after you did the modeling thing?

After, my ex-parter blogged on a consistent basis so I started blogging with him.

 

Since I know you’re a southerner, did you run out and buy your bread, eggs, and milk because of the snow tomorrow?

Shae Sixpence purses her lips together, “As a matter a fact I did along with all the fixins for crock pot beef stew that I’ll throw in tomorrow before I go to work.. a really big pot.. in case I have to rough it without power.. you know..”

 

Haha, I bought bread for grill cheese, that was the extent of my shopping.

And while you are suffering with only grilled cheese to eat know that I’ll be only a few hours south feasting. Cause it’s how I roll during disastrous times.

 

Wax or shave? Landing strip or nothing? j/k

Didn’t we have a Plurk conversation about this before? I’m almost certain we did.

 

We may have, but these conversations happen on Plurk so much, I forget who is shaved and who isn’t.

Oh, the woes of being Mister Bouncer Criss..

 

So what do you like to do around Second LIfe when you’re not playing dress up and blogging?

Blogging is actually what takes up the least of my time in Second Life. I have two jobs in Second Life, one being the CMO for Miamai and the other being the Senior Editor for Love To Decorate – The Magazine. Both keep me pretty busy. If I am in world I am normally doing something with one of them or both at the same time. When I am not working I spend time with my kids and I really enjoy exploring sims.

 

That’s awesome, and sounds pretty hectic.  One last question, cause I can’t think of anything else to ask, to busy drooling over your avi. If you could change 1 thing about Second Life, what would it be?

As in improvement wise?

 

Anything, what would be one thing that would make Shae more happy in Second Life?

I’d say the way the skeleton works or how the avatar moves. I’m not very smart when it comes to the terms used for it or what exactly it’s called but I seriously dislike how poses distort our bodies. I can lift my hand above my head without my shoulder going out of whack, my avatar should be able to as well.

 

I  totally agree, and wonky elbows.

And bums.. for the love of my bum!

Eespecially bums.

Shae Sixpence grins.

 

Gracias Shae, I appreciate you taking the time for the interview!

Bouncer Criss says cut.

Shae Sixpence snickers, “Yay!”

I Believe

I have been pretty bogged down this week with work so I haven’t had a lot of time to go out shopping but there are two items I do want to tell you about! The first is this new hair from Miamai called Ojaa. You can’t really see from the pictures because I suck but it’s a cute little pony tail. I am loving it and Monica Outlander threw a special version of it out to the Miamai group members today so if you missed it or aren’t a member of the group you’re gonna want to do what you gotta do to grab it!

I BelieveThe second item I’d like to tell you about is from a new to me shop called Plastik. It’s probably been around for quite some time I just didn’t know about it until they followed me on Flickr. I have had to make a habit of going to folks Flickr streams to preview before returning follows here lately. Some of you make surfing Flickr totally unsafe for work you know! Anywho, popped over and saw ALL THE CRAZY things! I really enjoy stores like this one that have little things that you won’t be likely to find otherwise. The horns, choker and earrings are all part of a huge package that was offered for 50L during yesterday’s Fifty Linden Friday round. There is a TON of stuff in this box. I tried to put on all the things but welp.. it wasn’t pretty. I’m really glad they added me on Flickr and I look forward to being able to pop over to the store to grab something off their shelves when I am feeling a bit outside the box.

I Believe2Can we talk about my azz? I haven’t been able to take it off since I got it Monday. By the way, I always wake up with the intent to do Berry’s Monday Memes and promise myself I will when I get home from work but something always comes up! This week it was completely derailed by my insane desire to acquire and play with the Cute Azz. Anywho, a few things that require mentioning or warning as the case may be about this azz:

One: If you stare at it too long it’ll make you want to stand up and do squats. True story! So if you’re one of those that decided you were finally gonna do the squat challenge as your new years resolution you are gonna need this azz. Loads of motivation, right there in your face all the time cause.. welp… it’s your azz!

Two: There aren’t enough appliers out there. I know I haven’t had time to look very hard but I have spent a few hours on the marketplace. Listen here people: I am a momma! I cannot be trotting around in my drawers all the time. At the very least I’m gonna need people to get on the ball with some more appliers that have.. erm.. more coverage? Again, I’m new to the whole mesh booty scene so if there’s someone out there who has knowledge of where to get appliers that will cover the whole thing and not just thongs I’d appreciate you dropping me a message here, email a sister.. IM her! Something!

Three: Your boots? Nay Nay. I truly wanted to wear some thigh high boots with this styling but nothing I tried worked. So… yeah.

Four: What is THIS about? (See below)

I Believe3That’s a raw snapshot, do you see the color change? It only happens at certain angles and I’m not quite certain why. At the angle used for the first picture it’s not visible. I’ve also noticed that as I move my camera around my avatar the appliers on the azz flicker a whole lot. And when I say flicker I mean just funky patches, not the entire thing. It’s really strange. I’ve no idea why, for photography it’s no big deal but for every day use it might be a problem. If there is something I need to change I’d really like to know about it!

Five: I can’t get my feet to match up exactly. I did figure out the gap issue between the legs and the feet though. My graphics are usually on Ultra for photos and once I bumped it down one tick it went away. No idea why! I’m not smart enough to figure it out but it went away and that’s all that matters. However.. there is a slight issue between my legs and my Slink feet. I’ve tried all the different sizes and it’s still there. For me the size xxsmall gets me the closest but it’s still not a perfect fit. Help? *makes a frowny face* It isn’t very noticeable but I know it’s there and because I know it’s there it effects the sexy that is projected from my aura! Waaaah!

Six: NO MORE KNOBBY KNEES!!!! I know I said it on my last post but seriously.. SO happy about not having to photoshop knobby knees anymore. Check out the raw snap below! Wooohoo! It’s not perfect but it’s a heck of a lot better than it was before!

I Believe4Seven: (Side note: I wanted to stop on six because … SIXPence but I have to tell you) You’re gonna get addicted to this thing quickly. Also, you get used to it quickly too. I’ve been wearing it all week and took it off for the first time today. I was INSTANTLY mortified. I couldn’t wait to get my Cute Azz (loving called the Phlat Azz by me!) back on. It’s amazing the difference it makes. Totally worth the lindens in my opinion.

Nana from Miamai

Don’t shoot me.. I don’t have a creative ounce of energy in me after such a long work week and a very busy weekend! These are basically raw snaps but I wanted to make sure I got the word out about the newest group gift from Miamai! Say hello to Nana, in a special color reserved for group members only.

GroupgiftNana is for sale in several different colors but this deep purple will only be for Miamai’s group members. There is no cost to join the group and Monica is famous for throwing pretty things at her loyal and loving minions.. I mean.. members. It’s worth the group slot, plus you get me throwing glitter at you randomly. Totally worth the group slot!

Groupgift1I squeaked out loud when I saw these bows in the back! Super cute! Perv my in world profile for the group clickage to get yours quick fast and in a hurry!

Groupgift2Oh, remember Ria from my last post? I still can’t take off this skin. I hate that it’s so much lighter than my normal tone so I’m gonna need someone to figure out who Shyla’s people are. I don’t have people but I am willing to hire people to talk to her people so a mocha tone will be forth coming!  Oh, jewelry.. Maxi Gossamer stole my monies again. *sobs*

The Pieces

If you haven’t had a chance to get to this month’s round of Collabor88 you have got to get your pixels there. I don’t care if you sit there for hours focused on nothing but failed teleports, it’s worth it! I nearly died when Shyla Diggs posted the teaser for Belleza’s contribution this month. Meet Ria..

PiecesThere are five different make-ups and four tones to choose from. Each of the tones come with all five lipsticks which include a matte finish and a glossy finish version. Also included are the cutest freckles ever and I’m not a freckle person at all.. Oh, and lovely little beauty marks. It’s seriously a beautiful skin. I’ll die if Shyla doesn’t put it out in the mocha tone, (Read that Shyla?! I’ll DIE! You don’t want that… do you?)  I am wearing the tan version here which is two full shades lighter than my normal. It’s been an adjustment but it’s such a beautiful skin I just can’t take it off!

Pieces2D!va Hair released four new hairs at Collabor88 this month, all of which were worn by Misses during the final rounds of Miss Virtual World 2014 held last month. I am wearing Miso which was worn by Miss Norway. There is a shocking amount of jewelry this month at the event as well. The collar and necklace I am wearing are both part of what is being offered by Maitreya this month. The earrings are part of another set that can be found there as well.

Seriously guys, so much awesomeness at Collabor88 this month. I managed to get myself back in a second time to grab all the things I was remorseful for not purchasing. I honestly think I bought one of everything. Okay, maybe that’s an exaggeration.. maybe..

Lights out..

I’ve always made fun of people who lose track of their days, until today that is. I honest to goodness thought today was Tuesday until about 4:30pm. I’ve worked every day for the past three weeks (yes, even Christmas ugh!) and I seriously lost track of my days. Imagine my confusion when Kallisto Destiny of DRIFT tossed her Fifty Linden Friday item on me.. on a Monday.. OOPS! I suck Kalli! DRIFT‘s FLF item is this nifty white cotton tank. Seriously, everyone needs one. It fits perfectly under so many different shirts and is comfy just by it’s self too!

In case you didn’t catch my previous post, Legal Insanity is running a 50% off sale this weekend. This little denim skirt is from there and just so happens to be my favorite of the variety. I highly suggest you drop by! DaTrip doesn’t do sales like these often! Don’t whine later when you missed it cause I told you so!

New from Miamai, Exile & LeLutka

I am totally behind on my blogging. I’ve been so busy with work both First Life and Second Life that I have hardly had time to sleep much less style and shoot pictures! Fortunately for me I was able to finally shoot these fabulous headdresses that were created by Monica Outlander as part of this years BlackLabel Collection today.

 

BL_HD

 

First up is Sian. One word comes to mind when I look at this headdress: Carnival! It’s only about six weeks away and you can bet I am going to be looking around the grid for the perfect items to pair with this piece for the festivities. If you didn’t know a lot of the Brazilian sims in Second Life celebrate and have their own carnivals. They are SO much fun so I highly suggest you visiting if you’re able to do so around that time. A lot of folks have issues finding hair to go under hats and items such as this one so allow me to introduce you to Travail, one of three new releases at LeLutka. Perfect  for situations like these with minimal effort needed.

 

BL_HD1

 

This is the Tatania who should actually be worn on your head and this is actually the back of the headdress but I like it so much I wanted to hold it! Tatania also has a sexy jump suit to match but I had a strange urge to remain naked so you’ll just have to suffer. Although being nearly naked in both this image and the image above allowed me to show off another new release from Miamai’s BlackLabel Collection called Ordoroe. This tattoo comes in three different colors, white and blue which are both shown and then black. The Tatania headdress comes in three different colors, white which is shown here and then pink and black.

If you haven’t been to this round of Fameshed you need to do so as quickly as possible. These new eyes by IKON are seriously the greatest thing since sliced bread. They come in a bazillion colors and are super easy to size with the HUD. Also, Exile released new hair and I am totally in love with this one called Party Girl. Just so you know, I will not be judged if you see me three weeks from now still wearing this hair. It’s that awesome!

I hope all of you had a wonderful and safe holiday!
