Love Contests? Name that pose!

My summer’s been flying by! I really wanted to post about this earlier because I love contests. If you’re interested in entering, you still have time but don’t wait too long because time’s almost up for Razmataz’s July Photo Contest! The winner gets the entire package of the Moni poses for free, a custom pose made by Melonie Romano, the winner’s photo in store and Marketplace, as well as a video of this pose on Flickr.

Name that Pose

Here are the rules:

  3. Can use light photo editing.
  4. Add your name on the photo.
  5. Create a new name for the pose you use.

Give the full perm photo to Melonie Romano by July 30th inworld or upload to Flickr (click here for Razmataz’s Flickr page). Only one entry per person is allowed. Need a lift? Click here and good luck!

“We never go out of style”

I’ve been on a Taylor Swift kick lately. I never thought I would write that! Swift’s actually a brilliant lyricist. I had no idea! Sorry, Tiffany Celestials as you told me about her some time ago lol.

Whenever I blog, I listen to songs that go along with what I’m wearing. Sometimes, well…most of the time, I listen to that one song on repeat. The song of the day is “Style” because I’m seriously in love with my husband. Granted we aren’t off and on like the song, but we love certain ideas (okay fine…I do have a “good girl faith”) when it comes to the other, so our coupling will never go out of style.

We never go out of style

Speaking of which, Dani Plassitz‘s newest release Lindy will never go out of SL style. Lingerie always has its place, especially if it offers the option to get appliers for mesh bodies and traditional SL clothing layers. Styles by Danielle’s Lindy lingerie is available in red, beige, white, black and pink, and blue.

And I got that red lip classic thing that you like

Also, you can opt for standard SL clothing layers. standard layers plus Appliers all-in-one layer, Maitreya Mesh Body Applier/HUD with six options for wearing (no standard layers), and Belleza Mesh Body Applier/HUD with six options for wearing (no standard layers).

Watch us go round and round each time

Don’t forget to wear your group tag because there is a 30% discount for inworld Styles by Danielle group members.
Oh, group members, there is a simplified version of Lindy Black And Pink as a Summer Group Gift!

“Catch the wind, see us spin, sail away, leave today, way up high in the sky…”

Oh, I love fantasy fashion in Second Life. In fact, I walked around in Second Life today, while wearing PurpleMoon‘s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream Corset” and an avatar complimented my look! It threw me for a loop. Personally, it’s the total opposite of getting caught shopping in real life because I never look this good in real life. ;)

Catch the wind, see us spin, sail away, leave today, way up high in the sky

PurpleMoon’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream Corset” is available at The Instruments’ July round and comes in five shades: Pearl, White, Earth, Pink, and Aqua. A Hud drives the wing’s colors so you have the same color options, but you can also change the branches. Ooh, and don’t forget the Titania Sandals! They’re reminiscent of gladiator sandals, but they have a vixen edge.  July’s round at the Instruments ends on August 7th. This ensemble is only available at the Instruments, so click “I love fantasy fashion too” for your lift!

“This summer’s gonna hurt like a motherf***er.”

I think I’m getting used to Las Vegas summers because at 102 degrees F, it’s a fine day for sitting by the pool. It’s much too hot when it’s over 110. Those days require sitting in the pool!

this summer's gonna hurt like a motherf***er

Tasty Couture’s Nora is an exclusive piece and is available for this month’s round at Designer Showcase. Here’s your lift and don’t forget your SPF!

“Got a long list of ex-lovers / They’ll tell you I’m insane.”

Sascha Frangilli knows romance, so I thought her gown Issy was particularly symbolic for today’s post. It’s my 18th-day wedding anniversary! No, I don’t go that far, but real life marriage rocks! My husband and I had been friends before we dated, and I don’t know if that makes the difference, but it does imply my former relationships’ foundations were rocky.

Gotta long list of ex lovers, they'll tell you I'm insane

In fact, I imagine many of our former friends believed we wouldn’t last because quite a few probably thought I was crazy. But hey, when a boyfriend thrives on chaos, it’s best to just play along. It’s nice to know those days are over.

Nice to meet you, where you been

My new husband thrives on love, teamwork, friendship, and laughter. It doesn’t get any better, so I’ve officially retired my “crazy” card. This post may read as sickeningly sweet, but that’s only because it is sickeningly sweet. ;-)

Issy is 50% mesh. As always, Sascha gives her buyers tons of options when it comes to skirts, so the flexi pieces dance with your moves and the dress’s body stays shapely and neat. Want to see? Click Sascha’s Designs for your lift.

How to Train Your Raptor

Second Life is 12 years old! Can you believe it? While the celebratory events are over, the sims are open until July 4. There are some beautiful exhibits and the stages are always particularly fun to explore. What secret crooks and crannies will you find?

Designer Showcase July 2015

I found a raptor. Much like Jurassic World, this raptor appears to have socialization skills and subsequently is trainable lol. I really did enjoy movie. It’s good campy fun, but the Party Raptor was a limited edition gift! I found it at the celebration while roaming around last week, but you can always try Marketplace!

How to Train your Raptor

Now, while all good things must come to an end, others will take their place. Designer Showcase‘s, a monthly fashion event, July Round is open. Spend your Friday shopping and exploring!

Name of the Game

Dani Plassitz created a beautiful and colorful Balinese traditional dress for Miss SL 2015 Indonesia  Mio Linette.  Do you like? It’s available at Styles by Danielle Fashion House. Also, a Miss SL Boutique will open soon, as a charity for the Join Hands for Nepal; Fashion for Food, and it will be available there too.

Go Big or Go Home

Name of the Game

Good luck to all Miss SL candidates! Is it bad form to send Mio Linette extra positive vibes? Unless it’s already happened. I haven’t spent much time in world, but I feel special in her dress. Speaking of special, my real life wedding day is in 2 days. Yikes. I thought I was totally prepared, but how does one RL work and SL blog whilst planning a small wedding? I can’t imagine planning a super big ceremony. Hope this wedding is my last. ;)
