Everybody’s workin’ for the weekend…..

Now that I officially have a full time job, I don’t have much time for anything anymore. Basically, my life consists of working, eating, and sleeping….and not much else! I am very proud that I at least have a job, though. I do love the company I work for and the people I work with (minus a few…lol). My look today is based off of what I wear to work IRL.

I’ll tell you a little bit about what I do: I’m a leasing agent for apartment homes. My job is a marketing position, so it requires me to be on my “A-game” 24/7. I’ve never really been in a marketing position, I’ve only ever been in customer service, so learning to sell to people is very new to me. And even though I have to work on weekends, I don’t mind it too much because I get paid an extra dollar an hour for Saturdays and Sundays!

Hucci has been one of my favorite brands in SL for a long time, and when I saw these Manteo sandals, I fell in love!! I knew they would go perfectly with the Hannah blazer and Jala capris. I was seriously tempted to buy them in every color…everything in Eboni’s store is so trendy and colorful. I love all things glamorous! You guys should definitely check out her store! (Eboni also sends out great group gifts…hint, hint!) Here’s her website and marketplace link as well.

I actually just bought the car you see in the picture here. It’s a replica of the FIAT 500, from Haru Motors. Haru makes some amazing vehicles….I had a very hard time choosing between this one and the VW Beetle!!

Wouldn’t it be nice to just buy a new car or house IRL for super cheap like it is in SL? But then again….I guess that’s what’s part of what makes SL so special!

Linden Lifestyle

So after a brief hiatus from SL because of family/personal issues, I finally got my first full-time job! I had been working in RL as a bartender for a long time, so this is a very needed change of pace for me. And do you know what a full-time job means? Extra cash that I can turn into Lindens!!!

I upgraded my account to Premium (which was super easy to do, btw) and moved into a Linden Home. The one you’re seeing in these pictures isn’t my “first” Linden Home, though. I had to move out of that one because it was insanely laggy…..and I figured out why when I cammed over to my neighbor’s house and found out they had some sort of amateur casino running in there with a gigantic wheel-of-fortune. Instead of just taking the time to report it to LL, I packed up my things, abandoned the land, and went in search of a new Linden Home. I’ll show you guys how I’ve decorated it in another post. For now, I just wanted to share with you guys that I FINALLY have my own home in SL, after about 2 years of being homeless! Lol.

I also want to show you guys my nails!! I found these at *~*HopScotch*~*, by Chandni Khondji. I am a HUGE sucker for anything Doctor Who related. My RL fiance got me into it when we first started dating, and I have been a die-hard fan ever since. Chandni also has an amazing Tardis photo prop in her store that I plan on getting with my next paycheck, lol. I sort of went on a crazy spree at the Maitreya sale, and spent most of my self-imposed Linden allowance in there this week, haha. BUT LOOK HOW CUTE THESE NAILS ARE OMG. I definitely went crazy when I saw them. Keep the Doctor Who stuff coming, Chandni!!

Just an FYI: They are meant to work with the Slink mesh feet. Chandni has a really great store that you should check out, especially if you’re a crazed Doctor Who fan like I am. TP to *~*HopScotch*~*

A Cure for the Monday Blues

I’ve got a case of the Monday Blues. It’s cold and rainy where I live right now, and I’m just not having it. I think a really cold rain is the worst kind of rain! And I’ve got to get out and go to class in it, so that should be fun! But, enough complaining….the sun’ll come out tomorrow! (I hope!)

Do you guys get the Monday Blues? What do you do to conquer them? For me, throwing on a cute outfit puts me in a better mood!

I’ve got 3 looks to show you today that I put together using stuff from U.One, which is a store I just discovered. Well, okay, I saw it on the FabFree blog. 😉 It’s owned by Fionna Cale, who is coincidentally the same designer for PopArt Furniture. I don’t think I’ve blogged PopArt before, but Fionna is notorious for making cute furniture at super low prices. A huge percentage of the stuff in her furniture store is only $1L, and the same goes for her clothing store as well. I found it a little strange that U.One’s prices are kind of all over the place, ranging from $1L to $15L to $25L (I think), but she’s put out some super cute mesh items that were definitely worth blogging about!

I do have to say, though, that I’m pretty sure most stuff in U.One is template clothing, but that doesn’t bother me a bit because it’s all super cute.

Cheap Sex

Happy Friday, everyone! I want to show you a quick look from things I picked up today! The only thing better than a super sexy look is a super sexy look that you can get for practically nothing!

11.2.12_1
This gorgeous lingerie can be found at Seldom Blue for FREE as part of the Dominatrix Hunt, going on November 1st-30th. You’re looking for an icon with the letters “WTG” in red. The Dominatrix Hunt is sponsored by Who’s That Girl, and you can find the hunt hints here. I’ve been a fan of Seldom Blue’s stuff for a long time, and Indigo never fails to please! There are a few freebies, lucky chairs, and some $99L bargain items at Seldom Blue, too, so make sure you check those out while you’re there.

My gorgeous shoes are from Deco for Fifty Linden Friday! I really have a hard time resisting things with sequins and glitter (or just shiny things in general), and I definitely couldn’t resist these! They’re mesh, and there are several other colors available but the silver color is the only one available for $50L. Hurry to Deco and get these awesome shoes….they go great with anything!

I hope everyone had a great Halloween, and here’s to a fantastic weekend! Love you all!

Skipping over Halloween

Am I the only person on the planet that really just doesn’t like Halloween? I used to enjoy it when I was younger, but now it’s just gotten too big of a mess for me to enjoy. Years ago, you could only buy things like fake spiders and skeletons, which were a nice spooky touch without being too scary. But now, you can buy displays that include bodies that are cut in half and hanging from the ceiling, making some sort of horrific intestinal chandelier. When my RL fiance and I went to our local Halloween shop last weekend, I was pretty freaked out by all of the terrible looking things you could buy. There were people with children in strollers shopping in there, and I couldn’t help but wonder if the half-eaten bodies were affecting them at all. There was even one display with half a body cut open, and a possum was stuck inside the lower half. You would press a button and the possum would begin moving, and the “victim”, which resembled some kind of zombie, would writhe and yelp in pain. I know Halloween is supposed to be scary, but in my opinion, Halloween specialty stores should have just stuck to the fake ghosts and goblins. Now, don’t get me wrong, I love a good horror movie, but for some reason, Halloween and I just aren’t on speaking terms this year. Maybe I’m just a Debbie Downer, but I feel like the super gruesome things should be made only for the movies in Hollywood, not for your front yard. After all, those movies are rated “R” for a reason.

Anyway, in the spirit of my Halloween boycott, I figured that I would waste no time skipping right over Halloween to Winter in order to show you these coats! I first saw them on Love’s post on the FabFree Blog, and I went to pick up a copy for myself, because this is an offer too good to pass up if you’re in need of a plush winter coat!

The free group gift coat comes in 4 colors, and I’m showing you 2 here. It comes in green, red, black, and white, and it is mesh w/an included alpha layer. This coat is super fluffy and warm, for those days when you need extra layers!

Have a happy Halloween, everyone, and stay safe!!
