I know I’m married to MANDALA, but I absolutely have to tell you that Antoine Burroughs of Burroughs Jewelry [SLurl] is one of the hardest working men in jewelry today.  As you can see from the pictures above, Antoine and the team of artists at Burroughs Jewelry make fabulous jewelry that is … well … smarter than I am!  And maybe that’s not saying a whole lot, but entire sets of finely-crafted jewelry that are scripted to change an (almost) infinite number of color combinations at a totally reasonable price are simply gems that you shouldn’t pass up.  I highly recommend that you check in at Burroughs Jewelry this weekend on your shopping adventures because there are some very hot specials running right now.  You can check out the Burroughs Jewelry Blog here for more details about the current steals.  Today, I decided to let the pictures do most of the talking and used one of my favorite sets from Burroughs Jewelry, Gianna, to display (a little bit of) the diversity you can add to your jewelry collection with just a single purchase from Burroughs Jewelry [Slurl.]

Be A CStar!

This is NOT a skin review.  Nonetheless, I have a few things to say about CStar Skins [SLurl] in Second Life and I’m pretty sure that after having seen these new faces that you too might just decide you want to be a CStar girl!  I discovered CStar Skins at the Black & Blue Fair and marveled at the completely unique faces, shading, and lips, so much so that I actually modified the shape of some of my doll’s facial features to fit with each CStar skin.  If you know me, you know that shape modifications are extraordinarily rare for me, so I welcomed the change to play with my shape (that is almost always the same) to complement the beautiful faces coming out of CStar Skins.  But that isn’t the best part, not by a long shot.

I found out that the CStar business model is as unique as the faces on the skins!  After I initially discovered CStar at the Black & Blue Fair, I visited the CStar main store to check out everything else for sale.  To my astonishment, I encountered numerous “SOLD OUT” signs over some of the skins that I would have otherwise been right-clicking to buy.  I quickly learned that each CStar skin is available only in very limited quantities on a first-come-first-serve basis. 

Creating beautiful and unique faces is sheer genius in and of itself, but giving Second Life residents an opportunity to be one of just 15 lucky people on the grid that own the exact same skin moves beyond genius and into EPIC territory!  Let’s face it, we live in a world where residents are constantly struggling to look unique and different from one another in an attempt to express their individuality and skins are a hot commodity (unless you’re a Photoshop genius with the time to make a skin just for you.)  And I probably don’t have to tell most of you that the creation of a quality skin is a tremendous and time-consuming feat.  So if you’re looking to stand out from the crowd and sport a seriously fierce face, I recommend that you check out CStar regularly.  And if the skins you see in these pictures aren’t available the next time you teleport into CStar, don’t worry because CStar has just begun the release of its “High Fashion Skin” series and you can look forward to the release of 2-3 new faces per week.

Now that you’ve gotten a better idea about CStar Skins [SLurl], I leave you with the whole picture.

Just A Little Somethin’ To Break The Monotony

Summertime 01

Here it is the groove slightly transformed
Just a bit of a break from the norm
Just a little somethin’ to break the monotony
Of all that hardcore dance that has gotten to be
A little bit out of control it’s cool to dance
But what about the groove that soothes that moves romance
Give me a soft subtle mix
And if ain’t broke then don’t try to fix it
And think of the summers of the past
Adjust the base and let the alpine blast
Pop in my cd and let me run a rhyme
And put your car on cruise and lay back cause this is summertime

- Summertime (Will Smith)


Summertime 02

It’s that time of year when I am feeling terribly sorry for all those folks who live in places where Central A/C is optional.  It’s summertime!  And late last night, my friend Colleen Criss informed me about a little something to break the monotony going on in my own little world.  She gave me a link to The Big Bad Blogger 2010 Sign Up and said, “you write a helluva a blog sister, get to it."  And even though I’ve been away for a bit and focusing more on my store, SHAG, and dealing with my new obsession in Second Life, Petable Turtles, I remembered that it’s just about time for A Shoe Mid-Term Report and the issuance of some long-overdue Shoe Report Cards.  And aside from that, I still have a whole lotta stuff to write about!  I grabbed the bull by the horns, threw my hat in the ring, and decided to use this little challenge as a chance to get into prime blogger shape for some upcoming posts that I’ve had planned for a while.  Who knows?  Maybe they’ll come out this very week.  And being that the dog days of summer are looming closer and closer, I decided to kick off my go at being a big, bag blogger in 2010 with an outfit that has summertime written all over it.

I was teleporting around to the various shops participating in Project Themeory, and I found myself at Acid & Mala Creations [SLurl] where I picked up this adorable, polka-dotted mini-dress in mustard yellow.  The dress is cute-as-a-button, the prim skirt works and I couldn’t be happier with the hue of “mustard” yellow that perfectly complements the yellow Obsession Heels from N-Core [Slurl].  This summertime look gave me the perfect opportunity to show off some of the new hair I picked up at the huge sale going on at [SLurl] and the Giant Crystal Stoned Love Jewelry in “Sunny” that is available at my own little piece of server space, SHAG [SLurl].  I topped it all off with the arm ribbon that I recently made for all the designer’s that will be participating along with me in the 2010 Summer of Love Fair.  (If you haven’t picked yours up yet, you can grab it at the venue from the giant, full bright gift box near the landing point.)

Have fun, stay cool, and here’s to having a blogger challenge to break up the monotony and (hopefully) make the blistering heat a bit more fashionable! *cheers*

In Memoriam

In Memoriam - Lindens Lost

As I’m sure you’re already aware, approximately one-third of the Linden workforce was released yesterday.  Codebastard Redgrave spent the day creating an in-world memorial for the lost Lindens.  Please take a moment to visit the Linden Graveyard at Rouge, it’s well worth your time.  Thank You.
