Marshmallow Kisses!

December 29, 2014

Happy Monday Junior Fashionistas!

This shoot was inspired by one of my besty friends in SL, cai1mansi. She made this adorable marshmallow set and as you can see I just had to give it lots of kisses! They aren’t available yet but there are 3 in the set and might be a few options each for a gacha event early 2015! I took the pictures at our North Pole Sleigh Ride Adventure event that’s only going to be up for one more week, closing sometime after January 5th 2015! Our family and friends put this up every year around Thanksgiving and this was our 4th year! Thank you to all the guests, bloggers and flickr users that gave us so much love this year and every year. A special thanks to Masoma County community for donating half a sim to give us a full sim to decorate this year.

Here you can see the adorable coat with sweater and collared shirt attached! There is also a hud with many different color options. I know there is a ton of controversy over super skinny models in RL but one thing they do inspire is flat chested fashion and that’s great for shopping options for an 8 year old in Second Life.

This photo and the one below are mostly to show off the .Figure. nails. Wow! The amazing options, full of colors a kid can love are available for the Slink and Omega hands and feet! I couldn’t help but get a close up of my amazing Slink hands with these super cute reindeer nails! I’m even going to put her flickr link here just because I love that there are so many cute nails and you just gotta scroll through and look for yourself. https://www.flickr.com/photos/nittinhaaeon/with/15430655724/

I hope you enjoyed this latest look and don’t forget to visit the North Pole Sleigh Ride Adventure if your not totally tired of winter yet LOL

Hugs,
Stasha Benelli

Fairies and Rain!

July 14, 2014

****UPDATE 7/15****

Can’t forget Bit’s amazing umbrella! – **Cute Bytes** My Winter Umbrella – Kitty by Bit McMillan

 

Happy Monday Lil Fashionistas!

Tonight I was walking in the rain (see the credits below for this super cool rain system) with my super cute umbrella and rain boots when I came across a fairy in the forest. I never met a fairy before and I was sort of scared and didn’t want to look right at her. I kinda had my eyes covered but started to peak over my hand a little bit.

As I got a glimpse of her she started singing and I noticed how adorable she was. So I pulled my hand down and decided to talk to her while peaking out from under the umbrella, sheilding my eyes from the rain. We talked about all kinds of things like where she lived in the giant tree behind her and what kinda of animals there were in the forest.

But since it was raining so hard I figured I’d save getting pictures of the forest animals for another day and decided to do my best job getting a picture with my new friend while she floated on her tiny wings.

I hope you enjoyed my short story and pictures of my new forest friend!  Please stop by and visit this beautiful sim near my home in Masoma County! (link below to SLURL)

My Blogging Journey Challenge

April 29, 2014

 

Thank you Strawberry Sign for posting this challenge on your blog and Aubrey Topaz for taking up the challenge and posting it since that’s where I saw it first!  I’ve been blogging for about 4 years now and when I saw this I thought WOW, I have a few things to say!  If you go to Strawberry’s Blog you’ll find many more challenges and ooooh so much amazing information for SL Fashion, Photography and Blogging that you’d be able to spend days there!

Before you start, I have the same outfit I blogged this weekend but I’ve put those credits below, just in case you didn’t see it.

  1. Which electronic devices do you use to blog with? I use my desktop or laptop computer, mostly because I do a ton of writing on my blog and I don’t like typing more than a sentence or two on a touch screen device.  I do use my android tablet and mobile phone to access my wordpress account for simple changes or addition though
  2. Do you have a mission statement for your blog, if so, what is it? To showcase  Second Life kid and teens clothing from kids and adult stores around the grid.  Also showcasing interesting sims or things other than fashion on occasion; but mostly posts about fashion and modeling as well as tips that will help SL kids strive to enhance there Junior Fashionista style!
  3. How do you feel about blogs that use their platforms to spread negativity? I don’t know any of them, nor would I care to even find out about them.
  4. Are you a grammar junkie? Do you thoroughly check your blog for errors before posting and/or do you judge other people’s posts if they contain errors? I am not a grammar junkie, but I did sleep at a Holiday Inn Express last night. :P  I do use spell and grammar check just to get rid of as many of the red dashed lines as possible since I’m kinda obsessive about removing things that don’t look right, but in the end I’m usually in too much of a hurry getting through all the other details to spend much time on the grammar.
  5. If you could switch blogs with another blogger who would it be?  My friend Jenna Langer.   I adore her style and I’m always amazed at how many posts she can do even with helping her rl family and keeping a full time job!  I have to add two because Carolina Sautereau’s work is a constant inspiration to me as well, I’ve always admired her creativity, style and dedication as well.
  6. Has your blog/blogging style evolved over the year(s)? How? Yeah sure my creativity and photography skills has grown with time.  I think I see so many Flickr pics and Blog posts from all my blogger friends that new ideas and styles start to blend with my own.  I can go back to my very first post though and I’ve figured out that my writing style is still fun-loving and casual.  I don’t think much will ever change there since that’s how I am in real life too.
  7. What is the most extraordinary thing that has happened to you because of blogging? Getting to meet really cool people from all over the world that have a similar passion for the Second Life fashion industry.  Learning to put my thoughts, ideas and work in a public forum without fearing what others will think.
  8. When it comes to Second Life blogs, there are different styles: Fashion bloggers, Lifestyle & Travel bloggers, Informative bloggers, and more. Which style do you prefer and where do you feel your blog fits in?   My blog is an SL childrens fashion blog.  I sometimes throw in a bit of travel, fashion styling support and modeling tips since I like to mix things up a bit.  I do however have a quite specific audience of SL kids and families that I wouldn’t want to confuse, so I try to mix those topics in with my fashion posts.
  9. What has blogging taught you?  Believe it or not it’s helped me to become more consistent with my project organization.  I use a template to keep my posts consistent and I approach each post like a mini project by creating folders in SL and on my desktop that support each one.  I’ve also honed my multi-tasking skills since I’m required to have so many applications open at the same time but still keep up with my family and friends in SL, Facebook, Plurk, Flickr and etc.  Keyboard shortcuts are GOLD. :D
  10. Share your top 3 tips for new bloggers.  Do it for yourself!  Keep your commitments!  Always strive to learn new things!

Trip to the Zoo!

April 27, 2014

Happy Sunday Lil Fashionistas!

Dressed up in my Sunday best and headed to the Zoo!   I even got new skin from Curio and was I ever happy to see that she can put out new designs again!  This was my first visit to Oasis and wow was I surprised at the size and detail here.

I didn’t make it very far before I found the funnel cakes and the stand kinda matched my dress, so of course I had to pose here.  *wipes the powder sugar off my face and continues*

This zoo is so big and has so many animials, all with notes, that you could spend hours here with your family or even by yourself to do a book report.  There is cages, aquariums, snake house, monkey house and even an awesome cafe up in the tree tops!  I only took one picture of the animals and it was of my favorite Koala Bear.  If you want to see more you’ll have to click the link at the end to come see Oasis Zoo!

Holds my watch up close to your face to give you a good look at my super amazing gem covered watch. Yeah that’s right all the sparkly hands move too :D

Oh yeah and I can’t forget to show you Pizza the Giraffe in my hair, isn’t she so adorable!  She is sitting in this hair that has become one of my new favs.  I got it a month or so ago when I was at the Japan Fair and I’ve been resisting wearing it till now.  It has a short bob with a pony tail attachment and the cutest bow and bands tying it back. Did I say color change bow?  Well it is, so go on over to ARGRACE to check it out yourself.

Well that’s’ all for today but I had to show you one more picture of the panda tip jar so you can find it easily. Someone put a ton of work into this zoo and they certainly deserve a bit of help keeping that half of the sim going.

Allen and I at the playground!

February 25, 2014

Happy PreHump Day Lil Fashionistas!

Ok this ones going to be a busy post, but I’ll try to make it more pictures and less chattering! Above you can see the playground I made with lots of toys from Sweet Baby. The swing, antique car and plane are all from there and Stephanie has outdone herself once again. The colors are great with many options to pick from and the Mesh is smooth with low land impact. Not to mention the cute poses and scripting that makes it all so easy and fun to use.

Allen and I decided since the snow was gone we’d go out and play in the backyard playground. It all started out so nicely with me giving him a shove to start swinging.

As you can see in this shot we’re all dressed to play and enjoying a lovely day outside on the swing-set! I with my adorable Panda Overalls that’s adorned with lots of cute embroidery work on the legs, belly, pockets and back from Soken Kids and Allen with his awesome play wear for boys from Attak. I’ve always known that Soken has great quality but it was such a pleasure to find that the Attak fashion is also very well made. Great textures and mesh-work will keep me coming back for more! In fact, I have another cute outfit from Attak for me that I’ll be wearing in my next blogpost. :D

As you can see here the things start to go wrong with my piloting skills after I hop on the airplane then quickly lose control and start heading straight for Allen. It’s really not Stephanie’s fault since she made such a great plane that’s so easy to fly, but instead the problem came from me trying to fly it on the tail instead of from the seat. :P

However, Allen never looked worried in the least and flew off the swing-set with cat-like reflexes landing right in the seat! He turned us away from the swing and landed us safely in the sand. Wheeeew, first crisis averted.

It wasn’t long before the next one though, as things typically go with Allen and I lol. When he got off the plane, i was wondering around and trying to figure out if all the controls were in working order. That little rugrat hopped in my car! As you can see I wasn’t very happy, while yelling and screaming for him to get out of my car, I held it back like superman stopping a speeding train.

Well before I read up and add a bunch more text, I’m going to just stop right here and tell you that mom came out shortly after to force us to makeup. Yea we hugged and laughed, then went on playing nicely forever after; yeah… that’s what happend. ROFL See you next time!

Pinkness Pearl Designs at The North Pole Sleigh Ride Adventure!

December 11, 2013

Happy Holidays Lil Fashionistas!

In this post we’re going to cover an outfit, in the picture above, from an exciting new kids designer. Her name is Pinkness Pearl and she has already been designing amazing adult avie fashion for years. Well a couple weeks ago she decided to make some amazing fashions for kids and am I for one am glad she did. But before we show you all the fabulous photos I want to tell you that you can find her at our North Pole Sleigh Ride Adventure Sim at the small store we have in the village at the end of the sleigh ride, she has the entire upper floor. You can also find her kids fashion and adult avie fashion on her marketplace. I know you’re excited to go to the sim and take a sleigh ride to her store but first you gotta cruise through the blog post to see the amazing pictures and the links will be at the bottom with the credits.

First scroll back up to the picture at the top where you’ll see myself and the amazing Willow Weimes in the same red puffy coat and stockings outfit that’s already been sized in the box from child to teen. It also comes with all the cuteness that you see from head to toe, so if your one of those fashion addicts that likes to pull all your outfit from one box and head out the door her stuff is for you!

In the shot above you can see Willow is wearing one of the sweetest holiday headbands you’ll find in SL. No, literally it’s made of cookies so yeah it is very sweet. lol Also, if that’s not enough it comes with a little candy cane mouthy that will keep your breath fresh throughout the holiday season.

I would be totally negligent if I didn’t take a shot of the backpack with the all the great details we come to expect from Sl designers. Like Straps, shading, clasps and even a cute little Santa Logo.

In this final fashion shot I’m showing off the red and white boots taht are a perfect match for this outfit. I believe that the cute little white poms are actually marshmellows :D Not really but if they were they’d make a perfect companion for the cookie headband. If you get stuck out somewhere in the snow, you certainly wont’ go hungry!

Now I couldn’t get through the this blog on my family sim without showing off some “MORE” pictures of our sim. If you’ve been following my Flickr you’ve already seen a few :D I got these sleds from The Arcade Gacha Event and they are set out near our penguin display. Oh and yeah those penguins, they came from the same place. I actually didn’t even spend more than a 500L to get all the cute props in that shot! These props and link to the amazing Arcade Event will also be detailed below.

If you’ve been to our North Pole Sleigh Ride Adventure then you know this shot is from the sleigh that starts you up in the mountain pass and winds its way down through the snowy woods and passes some amazing displays like the Polar Express and covered bridge before dropping you off at Santa’s Workshop in the village.

This shot is in one of the back corners of the North Pole Sleigh Ride Adventure, where we have a bonfire and cabin for hanging out in a quite spot. Willow and I took advantage of snuggling by the fire after working so hard on a photo shoot in the snow.  You all saw how much work it was right, the snow was like 5 feet deep!

I couldn’t resist including this one photo of my most amazing uncle Ropemaster who sat by the fire with us. You can also find some very cool window displays that he designs. They are located throughout the lower level of the Village store and I’ve included his landmark below.  The windows and displays can be added to your home and have animtions and sounds like storms, beaches, snow and etc.

Hey that’s all for now, so please come visit our the Northpole Sleigh Ride Adventure to say hi during the holidays and show Pinkness some love for entering the kids fashion scene!

Horses and Giraffes in New York!

October 20, 2013

Happy Sunday Lil Fashionistas!

FullShotFront

Ok a streak here since I’ve done two post in one month now! For my trip to a New York park I decided to pair horses and giraffes. At first i thought it was weird but then after putting some thought to it I decided its ok because giraffes are just horses with long legs and necks :P Since I’m only 8 I can do that sort of rationalization lol.

FullShotBack

In this shot I wanted to show the back because the horsey skirt has such a cute little girl shape that’s hard to find with lots of mesh stuff out there.

HeadShot

As you can see I’m sporting another cute D!va hair for this post. I fell in love with all the messy styles they have but this one was so perfect with the adorable texture changing bow and I had absolutely no trouble fitting it on my small avie. Points to the cutest peanut butter cup and jelly sandwich earrings ever! Does the Peanut butter jelly time dance

Purse

This *Tea Time Sac* from Le Poppycock was just perfect to add another interesting texture to this outfit without being overwhelming. I’ll be using more of their stuff in the very near future!

BalletSlippers

Another TokiD item and who doesn’t love a cute pair of ballet flats I think I’m paying TokiD’s monthly rent single-handedly the last couple months lol. There stuff is reasonably priced with great colors, styles, textures and most of their mesh stuff fits me!

Well that’s all folks, I hope you all are having another amazing and relaxing Sunday.
