Hello darlings! In my daily life, I work with kids. Today we watched Ramona and Beezus. Ramona can’t spell very well and she is trying to make money for her parents, so she makes a sign that says “delishus lemonade.” After her lemonade stand is a bust she tries to wash cars to make money. So her sign ends up saying “delishus car wash.” It is so cute and funny!

With that said, the August round for The Candy Factory has begun and I am here to bring you delishus goodies from these talented designers! All the items are less than or equal to 100L! This delishus event runs every month from the 1st through the 14th.

Athena in the Labyrinth

Γεια σου (YAH-soo) lovelies! That is the informal way to say hello to a friend in Greek. I thought I might start greeting you all in different languages. That way my blog posts can be informative as well as stylish. hehe

Greek worked well today because I am wearing the beautiful Athena hair from OhMai at the Hair Fair 2013. Each color pack comes with a HUD to change hair colors and five metal colors of the barrettes. Each color pack is 250L each (30% donated to Wigs for Kids) or the fatpack is 1000L (40% donated to Wigs for Kids).

LoL + Miel

The fab shoes I am wearing are from Loordes of London. They are the Crickhowell II in blue and gold.

They are only 60L here Cosmopolitan Sales Room.

Miel + LoL

Where does the cute dress come from you ask? Well let’s see…you can change the colors of the straps, the 3 stripes, and the ruffle segment with a nifty HUD plus it is darn right chic. It must be from Miel! This mesh Nautica dress is 625L for the fatpack of bright and natural colors.

My stunning surroundings belong to the The Labyrinth of Time. It is a beautiful place!  Be sure to check it out sometime.

έχουμε μια καλή ημέρα! (Have a good day!)

B!asta, Tameless, PixyStix

It is a beautiful day here at The Labyrinth of Time.

It is no wonder I feel heavenly today because I am wearing B!ASTA‘s silk Ever An Angel dress.

I love the frilly collar to the dress. I kind of despise the SL avatar’s shoulders most of the time, so it hides them nicely. 😉

This adorable B!ASTA dress is 10L or get it for free if you are in the group (50L group join fee).

Yearn

My head is adorned with the high-class Lanore hair from Tameless. It is 249L each color pack on marketplace. This is one of the fade colors. Tameless is a very unique hair company in SL because they use both sculpt AND mesh parts in their hair. They always looks stunning!

My skin is from PixyStix. It is an exclusive preview special that is currently only available in three tones at Miss Busty for 69L each. I am wearing the 02 Vanilla Custard tone and they have one light and one darker tone as well. I adored PixyStix‘s Gabriella skin but this Penelope skin is Pixy’s best work yet I think! As always, it comes with tons of options for brows, cleavage, eyeliner, wax, etc. I’m actually not wearing eyebrows above! I loved the way it looked with the hair.

Have a spiffy day, lovlies! ❤

Intriguing

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Holla peeps! I follow Strawberry Singh’s blog religiously…who doesn’t? So I decided this week I would do her Intriguing Questions meme.

You can do it too!

Meme instructions: Copy and paste the following questions and answers into your post. Delete my answers and input your own. Please leave a comment for me with your answers OR a link to your blog post with these questions! I would love to see your thoughts. 😉

  1. How do you deal with criticism? In SL I usually just brush it off but in RL I have a hard time not taking it personally.
  2. What’s the most infuriating thing other SL residents do? The thing that some SL residents do that infuriates me is act like someone they are not. They do or say things that they would never do in RL because they have the “convenience” of anonymity in hiding behind their computer.
  3. Which SL resident would you most like to have lunch with and why? There are several I can think of but probably the person I’m most interested in having lunch with is Xantheanne because I really admire her and look up to her as a blogger. Plus, she is darn sweet and cute!
  4. Who would you say is your “anti” role model? Someone who serves as a warning rather than an inspiration? Well, this is going to divulge a lot about me (that I like reality TV) but I would have to say Aaryn Gries from Big Brother 15. It is just on my mind and heart right now. She is a racist homophobic ignorant person and I think she is unfortunately a great example of hate in our society and world. She infuriates me beyond belief. Please, NO one be like her…
  5. What was something you used to enjoy, but was ruined for you? I used to enjoy DJing. No one in particular ruined it for me. I just got burnt out on it I suppose. I am still addicted to music though!
  6. What’s something you want to do that you’d be embarrassed to tell other people about? I want to be on a reality show in RL. 😉 shh don’t tell anyone.
  7. What’s the oddest term of endearment you’ve ever used or that someone’s used for you? In RL I have curly hair and sometimes it gets very frizzy (which really bothers me). I actually had an ex-boyfriend call me “Fuzzy Pumpkin.” It still makes me mad when I think about it. 😛
  8. Have you ever fallen in love with another SL resident? Yes. In fact, my darling boyfriend, Kevin, and I met through Second Life. We have been together in RL for almost two years now. 🙂
  9. Describe a time/event in your slife that you’re nostalgic for. I miss the days when I used to host and DJ at this certain club. It was my first year or two in SL. There was little drama and it was all about meeting people and having fun. I was able to really hone my decorating and DJing skills as well, which were new and exciting to me.
  10. What’s something sweet you’d like someone to do for you? I would love to have someone either hire me in SL to decorate and design their sim or help me start a business doing it. Sim design is something I have always done for my own land and I would love to have someone help me do it for a business in SL.

Returning to the subject of question two, another thing people do in SL that bothers me is sticking to gender stereotypes because they are afraid of what people might think.

Be who you are!

In my personal RL style I enjoy wearing t-shirts and jeans and hoodies most of the time. In SL, I really do enjoy the high class and high fashion girly dresses and accesories but I also love the other end of the spectrum. By that I mean I love wearing clothes designed for men too. haha. I love seeing androgynously-dressed women in SL because they just are doing what they love and being who they are and do not heed to the societal pressure of sticking to gender roles in fashion. Do not tell Kevin I told you (shh!)…he is a very manly guy who is comfortable and confident with himself. So much so that he has worn girls’ jeans in SL a few times because he liked the style of them better than boring mens’ jeans. Plus, his favorite color is hot pink!

I love my guy… 😉

Runway Real

With all that said, Kev and I wanted to show off the new men’s group gift from Spearsong. It is a super cool free mesh hoodie that says “I ❤ Electro House.” I hope you enjoy it like I do!

Wish you were here, lovelies! I have not left Baja Norte in days.

I think I am going to buy that old lighthouse and become the keeper.

My companions will be the sea lions. It is incredible how tame they are!

Ever An' Angel July GG

I’ll be the most stylish lighthouse keeper you’ve seen in my mesh Ever An’ Angel  dress and boots. 😉 The mesh Morpheus Summer dress is their July Group Gift right now!

Free group to join.

The gift also comes with this purple Morpheus necklace that compliments the dress nicely.

Well, now that I fed the sea lions for today…

I am going to shut myself up in my lighthouse again…hehe

Hello there and welcome to the wonderful world of Curieux Star!

 °˖✧◝(✌゚⌒ω⌒)◜☆˖Poppy Field

I started this blog back in 2010 and it used to be on Blogspot.

The original intent was to show fascinating sims and destinations in Second Life. Then I got highly addicted to Ozimals bunnies and SL fashion. I am gonna pick it up again and I hope you come along for the adventure! Curieux Star will be focused on SL fashion and destinations. Sometimes it will include Ozimals bunnies and info about me!

Above is me on the left and Kevin, my boyfriend, on the right. It is an old picture of us but I love that poppy field and the scenary so I just had to use it.

Thank you for reading and I hope you enjoy my posts.

p.s. If you have a wordpress account please leave your url in the comments and I would love to follow it and display it on my page. Thanks!
