MBA: Weekend at Jez’s

weekend_001I don’t do well waking up in a strange bed, but Jez’s new place is a bit of a fancy home-from-home, so I woke up feeling pretty rested after lugging my massive suitcase full of outfits there for the weekend. It felt very odd though; no cats for a start (my skybox is festooned with them!) so I’ve spent most of the day trying to convince him that he needs one, or two.  Perhaps three. Anyway, today I wanted to keep it pretty and simple, so I hung around the pad listening to music and dancing around in my BLUEBERRY ‘Milly’ Leather Shorts.  These are short, stylish and oh so tight that they almost gave Jez a coronary! But despite being leather shorts you can actually dress them up really well; I combined mine with a kimono and some statement jewellery and looked pretty neat, even if I say so myself! weekend_003A soak in Jez’s BAZAR ‘Toronto’ tub allowed me to think about the important things in life, like can the neighbours see my mimsy because Jez’s curtains are the very definition of inadequate?  No matter, we’ve all seen virtual vajay-jay before, so out of the tub I hopped into my lovely DOLLE robe (still available at WHORE COUTURE FAIR 5) and made like I knew what I was going to wear tonight..weekend_004Which of course I didn’t. It’s fair to say I had NO IDEA what I would be wearing.  You know when you have a drawer with personal items stored in it at your boyfriend’s house? I have a whole rail of clobber and of course,  I’d brought a suitcase full yet I had no idea what to wear! GAH!weekend_005Fortunately, MESH BODY ADDICTS BI-MONTHLY saved me again! This beautifully embellished lace and pearl cocktail dress from UNITED COLOURS  makes a statement without needing any additional items such as bold earrings or necklaces. It fits my MAITREYA body perfectly with just a hint of a cinch at the waist.  A slick of lipstick from my AMARA BEAUTY ‘Kat’ Lipstick Palette (to match my CATWA head) and I’m good to go!

So the question is, where’s Jez?!

MBA: The BEST khakis in SL!

In this post, you can see me wearing my new favourite trousers. Now, I very rarely wear trousers in-world, probably because I live in them in real-life, BUT I think that’s about to change because of these amazing ‘Shinoda’ khakis! They’re from the very well regarded in-world brand, VINYL, and you’ll find them at the MESH BODY ADDICTS BI-MONTHLY. I’ll tell you why I like them so much; for a start, the way that they’ve been ‘cut’ and shaped makes them look excellent. Creases in all the right places along with just the right amount of ‘slouch’ make for a realistic looking pant. I mean, just look at them, can’t you imagine lounging around in these, or grabbing your car keys and going out to shop in them? I know I can.  I want them in real life!Snapshot_003 They’re also available in an absolute plethora of colours too, and  I’ve no doubt you’ll see me wearing the majority of those a lot in-world, and on these pages. It’s not very often that I recommend fat-packing something (because it’s not often that I do that myself) but I genuinely recommend that you do that with these ‘Shinoda’ khakis because I guarantee they’ll go with anything and everything in your wardrobe! Hurray for my new favourite pants!Snapshot_002I’m wearing mine with a subtly-sexy vest and bra combo from VALENTINA E, along with some great flats that I acquired earlier today from KUSTOM 9 via the MOMENTO gacha machine. To finish I’ve opted for long and luscious locks, courtesy of this fabulous SPELLBOUND release from WHORE COUTURE FAIR 5. SPELLBOUND really are a magical (excuse the pun!) hair brand, and this style is no exception. I’m absolutely loving the waves that tumble over the front of the right shoulder, and the subtle plaits that tidy the hair to each side. It’s a very easy to wear style and works incredibly well with my CATWA ‘Gwen’ Mesh head without too many worries about fitting (the style is rigged) BUT in my opinion, you do need to wear a hair base with this style for best effect, so I am! My accessories are simple, a pair of tortoiseshell glasses from ISON and a necklace from YUMMY and I’m all set for a Kitty adventure with Jez in his new pad this weekend, how exciting! Look, I’ve packed a suitcase and everything! (LOVING this pose set from FROZEN poses at COSMOPOLITAN, it’s called ‘Luggage’ and you can have a LOT of fun with it creating scenes like this one!) Snapshot_008KITTY WEARS:

NSFW: A visit to THE SEX SPA (Pt.1)

Then I go to sex clubs
Watching freaky people gettin’ it on…” Tove Lo ‘Habits’

Sex in SL has NEVER been something that has appealed to me at all. I know that for some avatars it’s an incredibly important part of their Second Lives, especially when they’re in relationships with partners that they don’t live with; but it’s something I’ve never felt the need to investigate. Besides, I’ve always thought of it based on my original experiences of rezzing into Adult areas, back in the heady, early days of  Second Life.  It was never a pretty sight, and I could never fully understand how someone could get in the mood when there were distracting pose balls dotted all over the place, let alone animations that were jerking in all the wrong ways and making the avatars meld into one globule-like, writhing mess, with elbows jutting through foreheads and prim-phalluses popping out of the back of the avatar heads.  It never struck me as especially erotic, so I left well alone.
I would never have bothered to explore that side of SL again either, had it not been for my curiosity  being piqued quite by chance.  As most shopping savvy avatars are well aware, WHORE COUTURE FAIR 5 has just launched and it’s an absolute must-visit event with over 100 stores promising to fulfill your every whim and desire.  There are some seriously sexy items on show, from lingerie skins and hairstyles to poses and, erm, ‘equipment’. It really  cannot be missed, but missing it I was because I couldn’t find a ruddy LM anywhere! Luckily for me, I knew the event was the brain-child of the esteemed Missqwerty Pevensey, so I looked up her in-world profile, to see if I could source a landmark.  (Now, before we go any further let me confess I do read (and judge) people on their profiles. I love a good profile read, and picks do work because I go to so many of them. (I’ve found hundreds of new to me stores and locations through profile picks so the message here is do not neglect your profile folks, you never know who could be reading!)) ANYWAY, it was while I checked out  Missqwerty’s profile that I happened across her picks, and it was there that I learned of THE SEX SPA.Now, I hold MissQ in pretty high esteem in-world (although she doesn’t know me from Adam, I’m a long time fan of her brand AMERICAN BAZAAR and a fan of the events that she curates) so upon a complete whim I clicked on the link, and I was transported to another place entirely..chilling_011Looks cracking doesn’t it? I have no idea what I expected to find when I clicked on that profile pick but the SEX SPA definitely wasn’t it, because this is a truly stunning place; a gorgeous and well put together place for intimate relations without an iota of sleaze about it.  We’re talking high-class kink, with beautifully chosen and arranged furnishings throughout. Every element of decoration has been thoughtfully placed to evoke the feeling of an actual spa. Don’t get me wrong, the number one priority here is to get laid, but to do so in absolutely lovely surroundings, the kind that I had no idea existed in Second Life. More fool me. chilling_010It truly is a spa as well with massage tables, a gym and sauna, as well as treatment rooms that you can enjoy singularly or as a couple.  I had a blissful time soaking my tootsies. I was a tad apprehensive if I’m honest, having never been to  one of these places it was making me wonder if an avatar would rez in and lunge at me or something worse.  Fortunately,  that didn’t happen which meant that I could  really enjoy my surroundings: I was definitely enjoying the soothing and relaxing but could it really offer more? chilling_003I continued to explore and discovered a tub for two..chilling_013There is a fantastic pool and jacuzzi to be enjoyed outside too, with lovely sofas to relax upon under the virtual sky, or not as the case may be. I spied a couple who certainly weren’t gazing at the stars, so I retreated to a hot-tub to sit and ponder what I’d stumbled across. Despite the activities that were taking place a few feet away, I didn’t feel threatened or even embarrassed. I didn’t feel especially aroused either, despite my enjoyment of the location.  I was merely a visitor taking my time to enjoy the space around me. But I would be a liar if I said I didn’t suddenly feel curious…chilling_008This place had certainly got me thinking; is Sex in a virtual world just as bad as I thought it was, or is it actually an experience to be enjoyed, encouraged even? Just how much of an experience can it really be, indeed is there any point to it at all? It’s not an easy question to answer, but already my perceptions were being changed by what I was experiencing at this place. The fact was, I had to be open to the experience to really see what it was like before passing judgement so I decided to be objective and return with my trusty partner Jez to see what the SEX SPA was really all about…

Tune in for part 2 if you want to know more, here’s a NSFW sneaky peek!

Kitty Quicky: American Bazaar helps Kitty channel..Debbie Harry?!

ImageA very kitty-quicky here folks!

I picked up this leopard print ‘Amira’ top from AMERICAN BAZAAR at the Whore Couture Fair and it’s really funky. In fact all the clothes that I’m wearing are from the WCF event; the skirt is from PSYCHO:BYTS and legwarmers from BLUEBERRY.  I added some bangles and necklace from MAXI GOSSAMER and changed the colour on my MAGIKA hair via the hud,  A bit Debbie Harry, no?

Honourable mention must go to the IKON group gift eyes in ‘Machine’ that I’m wearing in this picture…they’re an astonishing group gift and really add to the whole look. I love it. In fact, someone complimented me on my avatar which cheered me up no end.

Share the love in Second Life folks; if you spot an awesome avatar, take the time to tell them! I promise you’ll make someone’s day; that random compliment sure made mine!
