L.S.D.Couture / Mani Pedi

It's been a while since I blogged L.S.D. Couture/Mani Pedi. This is a small shop with a lot going on. You'll find distinctive nail designs and some very pretty clothing items. As the holiday season approaches, you should keep it in mind for your party looks.

The featured color this month is silver, as in snowflakes, icicles and early winter skies. 
I'm showing the Sexy La La Dress; the featured color is Shadows in the Night. Matching Oh La La panties and Tie Me Up Stilettos are available as well as coordinated Honeymoon Nails. They all come in 8 colors with the silvers being featured on the events board. Look around the store for the other colors and fat packs.

The other outfit I want to share with you is perfect for your holiday parties. It's called Xmas Carolz. You may have seen similarly styled dresses around the grid, but most of them are in  dark red and green. These are available in 12 beautiful pastel shades with subtle snowflake patterns you haven't seen anywhere else, so you can wear them all winter, not just at the end of December. The featured color is Tinsel. There are matching12 Dayz of Xmas nails. 

LSD and Mani Pedi are the labor of love of my friend, Miyushu, who asked me once if I would be willing to blog for her occasionally. My answer was "of course" which lead to my tag line of "My nails are from Mani Pedi, of course"

Weekend of Nov 9, 2019

After the marathon events of October, several of my usual sponsors are taking a much needed break this month, so I shall return to my roots... When I started my blogs, I concentrated on small sales and gacha events, so I have a few of those for you today. 

If you are a Hello Kitty fan, don't miss this!  There are carnival rides, a race game to play alone or with others, as well as Limited Edition Hello Kitty goodies for sale. It's very much in the spirit of Hello Kitty: simple, silly, colorful and sweet.
Please note that the folks sponsoring this event are working in conjunction with the RL Hello Kitty celebration.

One of the most long running semi-annual sales events in SL. Most items are L$10, though a few of them were L$25 this round and some even went up to L$50. They're still a good bargain. Most items are from relatively new creators, but some long-time favorites never miss it. Quality varies accordingly, but for L$10, you really can't go too wrong and many offer a free item in addition to the sales items.
The usual variety of goods and clothing with an emphasis on hair, puppets and plushies this round. Fewer free goodies than usual, but the gachas are generous. 
Most are L$75.

Sad November (top photo)
A combination of sales and gachas featuring everything from makeup to home furnishings. Lots of poses in this one. I've always liked Sad November, though they always seemed to have logistics problems and this year is no exception. The sponsors and the inner ring of shops are easy to access, but there is an outer ring of shops with groups of two shops surrounded by a copse of trees with bounding boxes, which make it very difficult to see the vendors or to move from shop to shop.  Leave yourself lots of time for this one because it's very spread out and the going is slow.

The Mist

Looking for an interesting place to explore or to take pictures? Visit The Mist
The sim is A and there all sorts of interesting scenarios to create a mood for photographs.

When you visit the Mist, you will find a lovely free gift provided by Arabic Tattoos
Just touch the rose bouquet near the landing spot to receive your gift tat for thigh and back: the darkest passions lie dormant inside all of us waiting swelling and pulsing with our every breath it is up to awaken mold and stimulate them 

I visited the A.T. Tattoo Studio to check out the other tattoos available there. I've bought A.T. tats at some of the big sales events and have been really impressed with them. I hadn't visited the store before. There's a huge variety of both traditional style and full color tats for both sexes and unisex. I couldn't resist one called MOON for my upper body and hands. It comes in two intensities of black and henna.
