“let him walk down your hallway, it’s not this quiet
slide down your receiver, sprint across the wire
follow my number, slide into my hand

it’s the blaze across my nightgown
it’s the phone’s ring

I think last night
you were driving circles around me
you were in my dream
you were driving circles around me …”

The Great Escape

Posted on Updated on

Hello loves! I’ve been bone-deep tired the last few days, the kind of fatigue that I just can’t shake despite my best caffeine-and-cold-shower efforts. Like many of my kindred Second Life souls, I’ve some health troubles that shadow me and occasionally dull my spirits, but I do my best not to let them get the better of me. And it’s times like these that I melt more deeply into meditation, enjoying the rejuvenation that comes from a few minutes of pure relaxation. Many say that meditation can impart the feeling of flying or floating, and when I received these incredibly charming new poses from Kirin, that feeling of dreamy, floating repose is exactly what came to mind!

Thanks to the bevy of summertime and fantasy-themed events on the grid, there have been many gorgeous mermaid pictures to enjoy on Flickr these last few weeks. So I put my own spin on the trend, imagining myself as an innocent human damsel who was kidnapped by a nefarious merman and held in his watery lair, only to escape when a low-floating cloud came by as I was sunning myself on the rocks. Hee hee! Hey, stranger things have happened!

The wonderful items in my look today may almost exclusively be found at events – 7 different ones, to be exact! – and since that’s a very auspicious number, I don’t feel the least bit guilty about making you travel the grid to pick up all the loveliness! All of the SLURLs and details may be found in the credits above, but I do want to give a special mention to the luscious Requiem hairstyle by Moon for the current round of Uber. It covers one eye and is terrifically sexy and sultry, with Moon’s trademark wonderful textures and color options.

I’m also really impressed with the lovely Hippie Dress & Belt by Salt & Pepper, part of a lovely gacha set that may be found at The Gacha Garden. The dress is available in both long and short versions, and the set includes a matching necklace, bracelet, earrings, belt, and a special “Seed of Inspiration” item that may be received after 20 consecutive plays. For more information about the event, be sure to visit The Gacha Garden website, and keep an eye on the calendar as this round wraps up on August 22nd!

Epif-fini!

Hey there, my darlings! Going to keep this one a bit brief, as I’ve only just got time to show you the fullness of this gorgeous outfit before the time on the event runs out. (I need to clone myself so I can post multiple times a day; so many spectacular events and mainstore releases to celebrate!) So have a gander and visit the SLURLs below to get yourself over to this truly unique gacha event before the current round is fini!

Dazzling gacha fans with a truly unique experience are the fabulous crew behind The Epiphany event, going on through August 4th. Here’s a quick summary of how the event works (a more complete guide may be found in this Flickr post):

When you rez an item, you will get the option to either turn it in for points, or to keep it. You will be able to trade these points in for purchasable exclusives.

– Commons trade in for 1 point
– Rares trade in for 3 points

With 25 points you can purchase 1 “no transfer” exclusive item from any of the creators at the event.

The fabulous Jungle set that I’m wearing by Salt & Pepper includes several of those lovely gacha prizes, and if you happened to be pulling on the machine and received a duplicate, or perhaps received an item in a color that wasn’t to your fancy, you could then opt to trade it in for points. And the best part is that you can rollover up to 100 points until the next round of The Epiphany, if you’d rather keep them for future trades. How wonderful! This is exactly the type of system I had hoped existed when I first learned about gachas, and I’m thrilled that the team at The Epiphany have brought it to fruition. But hurry if you’d like to play: the current round is only on through August 4th!

A couple more lovely things to mention: the dreamy, perfectly wispy braid by Besom, which is exclusive to the N21 event through August 10th. It’s hard for me to quit that gorgeous Fade Dye color HUD, and I think this hair color matched so well with the beautiful and tropical Lilly Half-Wreath by ERSCH. And I’m so in love with the Avian Sandals by REIGN, which come with 6 unique feather colors in the HUD. They were part of the recent Saturday Sale, where all flat sandals in the shop were priced at a mere L$50 per pair. Incredible! All apologies that I didn’t have a chance then to post about it, as I only just learned of it in the nick of time and it was a one day sale only. To keep up with the flash sales of Second Life, join the Fifty Linden Fridays and Saturday Sale groups in-world. You’ll be informed every week of all the wonderful goods on offer, with SLURLS and vendor pics for easy planning. I highly recommend it!

Off to snatch some rest for now; have a wonderful time at The Epiphany, or if gacha’s not your thing, be sure to check out the all new WearHouse event that’s on through August 28th. The delicate tattoo and absolutely gorgeous skin I’m wearing are both from the event by SwaggedOut and L’Etre, respectively. These two designers are new to me, and I’m really loving them both. Enjoy! ♥
