New Beginnings, Happy Endings

I honestly can’t believe that 2017 is half over! We passed the winter solstice here in Australia about a week ago and are heading toward spring. July will soon be upon us.

The end of June is a new beginning for the mega-event, Uber. It has been open for just a few days with a Camping theme and *Just BECAUSE* has this great tank top that is designed to fit perfectly with a pair of shorts. Another late-in-the-month event is the subscription box, BishBox, which releases at noon on the 20th of each month. Those shorts I mentioned are from the June round and come in three delicious leather textures. It’s not too late to head to the BishBox Headquarters and grab your box (3000L post-release vs. 1500L pre-release).

The happy ending I mentioned is The Arcade, where you can pick up these adorable sandals from fri.day. What is happy about this? Well, for the next few days (until June 30th) you can easily get into the event to try your luck at the most popular gacha event on the grid. No desperate multiple TP attempts, no waiting ages for things to rez and all of the glorious gacha goodies for the taking! Well, for the buying. But let’s not quibble over semantics…

It’s all about the happy endings.

Before & After

1-before-sm

We have all had those moments, when we are so exhausted we just have to have to sit and rest. Head dropped for whatever support can be found, eyes barely held open. It is a “before” image that is simply borne of exhaustion.

1-after-sm

But following a refreshing pause, with a toss of the hair and a swing to the hips, it is an “after” of epic proportions. Calm, confident and in control.

The Before & After hair is from .:EMO-tions:., available at The Liaison Collaborative in March. It is two separate styles for two different moods. And it is fabulous.

My gorgeous shoes are a gacha prize from fri.day at the March round of The Arcade. They work so well with jeans or a pair of straight-leg trousers that you really must play until you win every colour.

I am once again sporting the Freya skin by *Birth*, coming to Skin Fair 2017. I am driving home a point here, ladies; you really need to try this skin!

It will be a transformative Before and After when you do.

While the turning of the calendar in Australia signifies the beginning of autumn, in Second Life it brings the latest round of The Arcade. Surely one of the hottest machines this round is the Salt & Pepper catsuit gacha. With multiple colours, the complete outfit is simply stunning! It includes both standard and Bento gloves and nails, not to mention a perfectly curled tail and perky ears.

Put out a saucer of milk; you’ll want to lure this fabulous creation into your wardrobe!
