Musashi-Do has high quality items for men and women that are not super expensive. One of my all time fave pieces from the store is the December Warmth coat.
I love the textures on the belt and the shape of the high collar. Yum!
Newly released is the Infini-tie shirt for women! It has been available for men for a while now but hey, I'm a lady! Haha. The system allows you to change the texture of the tie you are wearing into various patterns and colors to match or clash with your favorite looks.

Xmas Hustle

Everyone is currently trying to find gifts at the last minute. In every group chat I'm in questions such as "What stores have transferable items?", "Are there any gift card sales?", and "What the hell am I supposed to buy for my friend so-and-so!?" are coming through every minute. I am going to try to post a few things you can get for the last minute on the cheap in the next 24 hours.
One thing I like that is El Inexpensive-o (under 100L!) is this cute sweater from {Boutique} at the Glance sim. It's grandma style without being bulky, which rocks. And it's trans! So, you win. Plus you can debate about what that reindeer creature is planning on doing to that tree. Or vice versa.
Sweater and Antlers: {Boutique} @ Glance (transferable!)
Skirt and Stockings: WhoNose
Boots: Sentou Yousei
Hair: White Well
Skin: Mix and Match
Glasses: *Duboo*
Mouth Ornament: Famish

Feeling Sexy With Dahl

I saw some free lingerie come through the subscribo at Fishy Strawberry and my evil plan hatched. "I shall make Dahl pose with me!" I thought, "Then she shall be mine! Mwa ha ha!" One word of free skimpies and she immediately teleported to the store and grabbed the gear from the notices. I got her to come to my skybox with an innocent "let's blog together" suggestion. Once she was in the set ("Why don't you wear the thong?" I suggested with an evil gleam in my eye) I asked in the least skeezy tone I could muster if she would like like to hold my hand. She seemed reluctant but finally agreed.
I tried to keep my eyes off her large, sexy bottom but it was so hard I ended up not even being able to look anywhere near her. I think she sensed my intentions of slex through my sweaty palms and she quickly looked for the exit. At least I got a photo before she left :P
On Sileny:
Skin: Glance
Hair w/Horns Attached: Yuna's (lucky board prize!)
On Dahlidah:
Skin: Atomic
Hair: Fri.Day
On Both:
Lingerie: Fishy Strawberry (subscribo gift)

I also blogged this on FreeStyle but it was such a fun shoot I had to post it here too :P

One Set + Two Looks = Long Post

I have had the Mora Gabby set from Alamood sitting in my inventory for a while waiting to be blogged and I couldn't decide if I should pair it with something casual or something sexy. The debate raged on until I decided oh what the heck, I'll do both!The stones on this set have the look of Tiger's Eye, which as a former rock collector I enjoy. (OMG...did I just let my nerd flag fly a bit there?) Paired with casual clothes I feel like the cool artist lady down the street who makes awesome painting and drinks chai and wears cool glasses (oh wait..that IS me!! Except significantly fatter than my av. Ahem.)The shoes I am wearing with the casual set are the new release from HOC. They are color change, modifiable, everything you could want in a prim foot and only 100L! Same awesome quality as all HOC goods. Love. I especially love how the toes are not too fat, too short, too curled, too straight, or too long. They are yummy little toesies! For the sexier look I am wearing the new release dress from Khush. I received the fat pack as a review copy and I chose the green one because...well...I love green It's tight, slightly shiny, low I am only wearing one ring and one bracelet from the Mora Gabby set but it comes with two of each, as well as the necklace on two attachment points. And what goes better with a tiny dress and baubles than knee high boots? The Skin I am wearing is one of the So 2010! Hidden 50L items at Glance skins. It makes me look kind of angry but I like it! Haha! The Orbis Penitus sim (where Glance is) is an adult rated sim so if you're not age verified you can't go.
And finally a close up of the bracelet in the set. The stone has black, brown, and tan in it so you can really pair it with any colors. Versatility is always key to me when buying things because I am not exactly rich and need things that I know I can wear more than once. Alamood has many versatile pieces and even shoes! More on the shoes later!

Sweater: Ivalde (25L currently since it was a past advent gift)

I'm in LUST!

When I found out I had been selected to receive a blogger preview pack of Launa Fauna’s new skins, at first I was too shocked to click accept. Then I squeed. A lot. I tried them on and stared at myself, camming over my whole body several times. (Vanity, thy name is Isabeau.) But there's no getting around it; I like these skins. I love these skins. I hot monkey lust these skins.
(From left to right: Fresh, Voom, Acres. Click for larger version.)

I admit I don’t own many Chai or Chai Nova skins. They just never looked right on me. However, Launa Fauna’s newest skin line L.Fauna is vastly different from her Chai skins. (There's even a different subscriber for the L.Fauna line, which can be found here.) Though she still offers the oh-so-awesome tintable brows and freckle options, the face and body are fresh and new. They’re head-to-toe beautiful, and when they’re released, I will have them all!

I received 3 skins in the pale 2 tone, and I’m amazed at how the softly shaded body almost glows.

One of my absolute favorite parts of these skins is the soft belly. I’m a curvy girl in SL so I'm not a big fan of rock-hard abs drawn onto women's skins. I’m proud to show off this belly rather than hide it under my clothes!

Launa still excels in the freckle department. Not only are her freckles very well done (not too light, not too dark) she also puts a smattering of freckles across the chest, the back, and subtle ones on the belly. As a freckled girl IRL, that tickles me. I look like a sweetheart in the "Fresh" makeup and that’s all right with me.

The skins come in 6 gorgeous tones (2 pale, 2 tan, 2 dark), all of which have tintable lips and brows, freckle options, and cleavage options (not shown here.)

As of right now, there are no demos to try because the skins haven’t been released. However, the public will get their first shot at these skins on the next 50 Linden Friday (tomorrow) when Launa offers a skin for only 50Ls. I challenge you to grab it and fall in love with the L.Fauna skins the way I have.

Skins by L.Fauna (will be released next week!)
Lingerie by Reasonable Desires
Eyes by Shine
Lashes by Miriel (no longer available, sorry)

Shoes by HOC/House of Curios

The Passion of Winter

Winter time where I live is a pretty horrible thing. It is dark most of the time, it's painfully cold (not unusual to see temps -30 degrees Fahrenheit), the snow is filthy and drab from the passing cars, and the roads become icy and deadly. In SL, however, winter is a thing of beauty.
Putting on a comfy sweater and fluffy boots and walking into a sim with gently falling snow fills me with the feeling of comfort I used to get at the first snow fall of the season, before I became a jaded and cranky adult. Grey skies in SL are an art form and a thing of beauty, where as the constant grey skies up north here in RL winters have literally driven people to madness and worse.
Second Life really does help people get through many issues in their real lives. Some people suffer from crippling anxiety in RL, yet are able to have fulfilling social lives in SL. People with very little pocket money for clothing in RL can have massive wardrobes in SL. Things of extreme winter-themed beauty in SL really do help me get past the growing cabin fever I experience in RL winters. Comfy sweaters like the one from Aqua I am wearing and the boots from Duh! bring a bit of my RL self into my avatar; the amazing 12 Days of Christmas themed branch accessory from ~La Petite Morte~ bring that extra aspect of wonder and fantasy to my avatar that allows me to escape the gloominess of the weather for a short period of time.
Whether you are a gloomy Gus like me, or a total polar bear, I think you can appreciate the wonderful craft work that goes into each and every decent part of SL. This winter while it blizzards outside in the grey day, I will appreciate them all the more.

Two Turtle Doves branch: ~La Petite Morte~
Boots: Duh!, Down the Chimney Hunt prize (starts tomorrow, I got an advance copy)
Jeans: Ingenue
Hair: Exile (new release!!)
Belt: Puddles, 1L
Chair: Elisa Poses
Sweater: Aqua, preview copy (not released in this style yet, but will be soon!)
