The Music of Cursed Love

cursed blog_001

Loving deeply is a blessing and a curse. The elation and joy of feeling a person in every pore of your skin and every fibre of your being can so quickly become despondency and pain of unrequited love. During our lifetime we usually experience more than one of both ends of the spectrum…if we’re lucky. That sounds a little crazy but I believe that you can never fully appreciate the amazing highs of being in love unless you have experienced the depths of the lows.

The Cursed Collection from MadPea at this round of The Arcade is an example of love and evil meeting in a whirlwind. I won’t give away too much of the back story because I don’t want to spoil the mystery and surprise. The Cursed Collection comprises of 13 animated, wearable instruments. The instruments first featured in the MadPea adventure The Collection (which continues until the end of September). The RARE is the conductor’s baton and stage and when you rez your instruments on the stage…magic happens…but is it good magic or evil magic?

cursed blog_002

MadPea has added a little extra spice to the gacha set too! Inside each package is a piece of a letter. Collect all the pieces and see where the mystery takes you….it will be worth your while I assure you. The Arcade opens on 1st September and the MadPea Gacha is  only 50L$ per play. Most importantly this is your ONLY chance to get these instruments as the set will be retired when The Arcade closes at the end of September. 

It’s difficult to show in static pictures the beauty of the full orchestra in action so hopefully this animated gif will give more detail.

There’s a Guy Works Down the Chip Shop Swears He’s Elvis

elvis_001

*sings* “And He’s a Liar and I’m not sure about you”

Kirsty MacColl’s first hit single. I remember hearing it at the time and being quite bemused by the lyric…and wondering what chip shop she went to. That song popped into my head when I saw the Elvis decal from Floorplan & Consignment in this weeks Fifty Linden Friday hop-a-bout. I’m not sure why an Elvis song didn’t immediately spring to mind as I have lots of favourite Elvis tunes that could have tipped into my consciousness and just this morning had heard Burning Love on the radio.

Elvis has touched everyone’s lives at some point or another. Those 5 letters being instantly recognisable as to who is being referred to. Generations that weren’t even alive before his death in 1977 adore him and his music lives on and I am sure will continue to do so for many more generations.

Kirsty MacColl was also taken too early. In fact at 41 she was a year younger than Elvis was at the time of his death. She didn’t have the worldwide impact but she did leave some tunes behind that played a big part in my younger days. Her cover of A New England was an anthem of a certain period in my life and I didn’t even realise til after her death that she wrote They Don’t Know that Tracy Ullman made so famous. Of course she is probably best known for her collaboration with The Pogues on The Fairytale of New York which many people will name as their favourite Christmas song, myself included.

Both singers leaving legacies after being taken away too young in very different circumstances.

All this retro Elvis talk got me on track for the post and reminded me about this awesome outfit from Tashi for the current round of FAD which opens today. This polka-dot classic called Kristin comes with a colour change hud and 6 different colour options and works perfectly matched with shoes from Tashi at the same event for Slink Mid Height feet. Perfect for any retro vintage lovin gal!

As Fifty Linden Friday and the Elvis deco was the inspiration for the look it’s superbly sublime that Foxes Store had this faux fur stoles as one of their items in the round of FLF! Totally tops off the look.

It’s my last weekend before starting my new job in real life on Tuesday so I am going to make the most of it. I hope you all have a great weekend too.

Perfect Fit Pixels – Neve – New from coldLogic

Snapshot_021

As a blogger who likes to have something to say in their posts and not just list items, sometimes, I struggle for inspiration. I may have a great outfit I want to blog but can’t think of anything to say in addition to just sharing the pictures.

Then….sometimes, there is so much bursting to come out that I have the alternative issue of how do I get this out on virtual paper and do it all justice. That feeling right there is what I am struggling with today. So much to share, all of it good and a blank screen. I wish I could connect my head directly to the keyboard and let it write itself but I’m scared it would make more sense. Ha!

When I log in for the first time each day I have a plethora of messages from various subscribos and a slew of group notices. There was one that really caught my eye this morning from coldLogic. I read the notice, sat back and beamed! coldLogic is introducing a new brand to their range called Neve which is specifically aimed at mesh bodies. Now coldLogic has been making their newest items with a SLink Physique option for some time and the majority of those work with the Maitreya Lara with a little tweaking but this is now quality clothing from them specifically made for a range of mesh bodies AND the system avatar. The good news does not stop there….

In addition to this, they have introduced a long-awaited and much requested giftcard system and introduced a new group for Neve releases which will entitle vips to 5% credit back on purchases. And wait….there’s more…

I bought two items from the store, tried to click on the colour I wanted to purchase, as this was how coldlogic items worked. You bought individual colours or a 3 piece fatpack right? Nopes, not anymore. Each of the items I bought came as a fatpack with colour changing hud, and in the case of the Neve Dominique CurlyQ in my second photograph the skirt and top can be completely different colours and textures so you have even more mix and match options.

I was also delighted that the dresses both had the Maitreya auto-hide feature so it’s one of those grab and put on quick and not worry about alphas items! Be still my beating mesh pixel heart! This is a huge development for users of mesh avatars looking for the kind of quality we’re seeing from Blueberry, Addams, Just Because, Bueno etc but with a completely different look and feel to it. I am looking forward to many more new releases in the Neve range from coldLogic!

I was deep in conversation with Inara Pey during the week and she told me about a sim she was producing on LEA6. I have been meaning to get over there and view her work for a few days. Inara can give you a much better background to what she aimed to achieve with Impressions than I could ever attempt. I highly recommend you visit and read Inara’s post and the information notecards you can pick up when you teleport in to the sim.

Illusion Point also opened it doors this week for their latest round. I love this event, it’s smaller and easier to get into it and has some gorgeous little stores from new-to-me creators as well as some designers you will all recognise. I am really becoming a huge fan of Musa! jewelry and these earrings are available at Illusion point and come in 3 styles including a petite avatar version. I topped off my look with this group gift from Glow Designs. The clutch bag comes with a colour change hud so you can match it up beautifully to almost any outfit!

There! I got it all out and I hope it was clear and informative as my mind does have a tendency to jump around more than a tad!

I’m Not Bad…I’m Just Drawn That Way

sin cityFestival of Sin started a couple of days ago and it got a group of friends and I chatting about Film Noir and our love of the style of those. One of the most popular MadPea sims that we often get asked to bring back is Mad City which was based on the look and film of many a Film Noir. Vintage it seems, is all the rage these days and I quite like it for sure.

I couldn’t resist going for the Jessica Rabbit look when I received this gacha pack from unKindness specifically designed for Festival of Sin. The set is a hand drawn papercraft/comic style building set to produce your very own Sin City! Of course Jessica had to be found slouched outside the Red Wrath Pub…SL imitates RL yet again in my case!

sin city 2There are 10 items in total, 9 commons and 1 rare (Rare – Bordello Building with working light…red of course!). 75L$ a play and the commons are:

Greedy Bank
Glutton Cafe

Look No. 167: When In Doubt….Wear Red

"There is a shade of red for every woman."
~ Audrey Hepburn ~


Hello again! Today I'm bringing you new releases from four awesome designers: B Bos, MODA Designs, DS'ELLES and Loordes of London.

Let's begin with the gorgeous porcelain-like skin I'm wearing. It's by DS'ELLES and it's called Aline and can be purchased in 4 colors: Porcelaine, Neva, Colorado and Java. It's currently available for purchase at the FAD Fashion Event which is now open. Appliers for Slink Hands & Feet, Slink Physique, Maitreya, Belleza and Eve are available at the DS'ELLES main store.

The pretty, flowing, red dress I'm wearing is B Bos's latest new release. It's a mesh dress and comes packaged with 5 standard mesh sizes. It you can purchase this dress in 9 other colors/textures as well. I am wearing this dress with my Maitreya mesh body. If you want to see if it will fit your mesh body, I highly recommend trying on the demo (demo is free) before you buy it.


The sexy platform pumps I'm wearing are from MODA Designs. As almost all of MODA's shoes does, it come packaged with an amazing color/texture HUD (30 custom MODA colors and 6 patterns) which will allow you to mix and match the body of the shoes, the heels and the bows however  your heart desires. These heels are for Slink High Feet only (feet sold separately). You can purchase these shoes at a promotional price of 99 Lindens.



The beautiful beaded and gold necklace I'm wearing is by Loordes of London. It's available in 3 different bead colors and is available for purchase now on their board outside their main store under "Steals & Deals".



The armbands and bracelets are by Ryca both are available for purchase in silver. Finally, the hair is by Tableau Vivant. It was one of their exclusives at the Hair Fair that just concluded but you can pick it up at the main store.

Until next time...happy shopping!
