Here, Kitty Kitty!

This week saw the release of the latest BISHBOX.  Along with POWDER PACK, It’s the only subscriber box that I pick up every month. I was incredibly excited to discover that the theme this month was ‘Bad Kitty’, as you can imagine that ticked ALL my boxes, but unfortunately, when it came to the opening and reviewing of the contents there were only a select few items that I really enjoyed.  In fact, this is how disappointed I was: I recorded a vlog and then deleted it. I just thought I sounded incredibly miserable and negative, but the fact was, there was so much scope and yet most of the participants had gone for the same old ideas.  I felt let down and disappointed. There is a lot more to creating a cat aesthetic than masks, PVC and collars.  True, it’s a theme that has been done to death in Second Life but I was ready to be wowed with some super original content and that just wasn’t the case. Now I’ve had a whinge there were a couple of stellar items that I really enjoyed, and I’ll feature those in forthcoming posts.

In other news, UBER has some interesting offerings this month. It’s an event I find a little hit or miss in the extreme. When I finally manage to get in I either go mad and buy all the things or harrumph and roll my eyes as I slope off home in a sulk.  This month saw me buying a few items but I don’t think it’s up to the usual standard. That said, the ‘Yonder Eyes’ from IZZIE’S are well worth checking out if you want to up your virtual eye game; the colours Izzie has created are beautiful.

Can you see a theme developing here? In fact, that’s something I’m seeing reflected in other events and offerings across the grid; is the virtual shopping bubble about to burst? Nah, I don’t think so.  Don’t forget that it’s almost Summer and people tend to hang out more in real life once the weather gets warm.  Yes, designers have real lives too you know!

Anyway, here’s a look I threw together featuring items from BISHBOX, UBER and MESH BODY ADDICTS BI-MONTHLY, which finishes soon so quick..run!

MBA – A Quick Video Preview

I feel a wee bit deflated.

I’ve not been in Second Life for just over a week; it’s been a self-enforced exile for an exam that I’ve taken today.  It was a tough, five-day course and I’ve done so much reading that my brain hasn’t stopped buzzing yet.  It’s not just bee this week either; my night shifts have been filled with courses and swotting up of the kind that I haven’t done in twenty-five years.

I did well in tests and mocks up until this afternoon when it was crunch time.  Guys, it was hard. I honestly don’t know if I passed.  To make matters worse, there are just 8 questions. The best answer scores 5 points, second best 3 points, then 1, then 0. You must score 28/40 to pass, that’s 70%.

I came home after the exam feeling a little like I’d developed a thousand-yard stare. Then I had a nap, woke up and ate some Chinese food and logged in-world, and did what any sensible person would do, I went shopping.  There’s so much to enjoy in-world that I was pissed I’d missed out last week, especially when you consider that it’s SKIN FAIR 2017 time already! I just hope my missing the start has been worth it, I’ll know in about four or five days’ time…

Anyway, I’ve found some lovely things at MESH BODY ADDICTS to tell you about, starting with this corking ensemble from HUCCI. I’ve done a quick video and I’ll post some more highlights over the weekend.  I’m also wearing the latest group gift hair from TRUTH; this is ‘Zoya’.  It’s an absolutely cracking hairstyle and he’s given away some belters for Group Gifts in recent months.  He’s also giving away a L$150 store credit to VIP Members to celebrate hitting 12k group members…Yowsers!
