Sasy Scarborough – Fierce & Fetching

Sasy Scarborough - Fierce & Fetching

The latest set by Fifty Five not only had me running over because of its inclusion of both Slink Hourglass and Cinnamon & Chai fits, but the square toed strappy heels were just must haves. Now the Mini Corset blazer dress combination is just all the things and more, the options if you go fatpack and believe me, look at this HUD, you definitely should, because not only do you have these amazing prints to choose from and all the extras, but you can either all one colour or left and right as I did, and I am loving that.

I bought this hair the other day when I went to EMO-tions and was wondering what I would do as a look with it, just knowing that the celtic knot metal clasps and the style itself was great, I teamed it up with a hairbase I had from Adoness and that and the tartan punk vibe from the clothing, it all came together for me in such a me forever way. Adding the gorgeous earrings from Mandala that had the black white and red I was in need of, and I am ready to take on everything.

Second Life 19th Birthday COMING SOON! – and I am 16 years in SL today

Sasy Scarborough - 16th Year Here


16 years is a mighty long time to be part of something as wonderful as Second Life. I am forever grateful to be part of this platform, the friends made, the experiences had…I love and care about everyone I have ever met here, and am truly inspired daily.
I have been able to watch incredible people grow as content creators and people, been able to share in experiences that have surpassed any expectation one can imagine they would. I came here to salsa and ended up making it part of my life in such a big way. I started working here my second day in world, and hit the ground running and have very rarely stopped since…I am glad though that now I am in a place that allows me to take a bit more time to stop and smell the virtual roses.

Second Life is a healing place, it can be a crazy place, it can definitely be a dramatic place, but honestly I hope with all sincerity that whomever you are, it becomes a place you find adventure, fulfill dreams you are yet to know you have, and share the you you want to be with others, you deserve it.

Second Life will be celebrating its 19th year this year, and the SL19B signups for Shop n Hop are now open, so if you have a store and want to be part of this amazing annual event, get your application in NOW! There is no cost to be in this event, and the people you will share space with are such a vast assortment of talent, so even if you do not participate, be sure to attend.

Sasy Scarborough – More than One Bad Pixel

Sasy Scarborough - More than One Bad Pixel

 

Today had me running over to the One Bad Pixel area @ Slink Mainstore and getting my Corset dress updates – they just added Cinnamon & Chai and Petite sizing for Original and Hourglass Physique bodies. But also to grab the special colours they put out until Monday for only 75L each. The colours are gorgeous and won’t be around, so grab them while you can. I instantly fell for the gold leather option but this Olive pinstripe option won me over for the day, I still have the other three colours to wear as well.

I have been getting everything for Hair Fair sorted – coming June 25th 2022 – and I gave myself the weekend off to prepare for the months ahead for prep. So what do girls do when on vacation on the beach – well I would not actually know, but so many girls came back from Bali with their hair in braids and it always made me want to have that pure relaxation of hours of time spent having your hair worked on. Mind you I could never have sat still that long unless there was a tv on the sand.

2022 Dance Panties – Cinnamon & Chai

2022 Dance Panties - Cinnamon & Chai

 

Every few years I have a post that is all about how I found the best dance panties in the whole wide world, and they would replace my previous ones. This actually started around 2007/8 if memory serves, I was in my skybox made of 6 rather huge prims – you know those days when you had to decide between walls and furniture, and I was dancing around in my skybox sorting my inventory in pretty much not a lot at all, except some undies and a t-shirt or tank or something like that. It became the start of my belief that you will find a pair of underwear that are not just sexy, or practical but motivate you to dance around the house in them, think Cameron Diaz in Charlies Angels.

So the other day I saw these land on Flickr for Cinnamon & Chai sizes and I fell instantly in love, so today off I went to get them at the Dubai Event. What was even cooler was that I have been playing around the past month with some tattoos, and fell in love with making Mandala type ones, and I was wearing one of the fishy ones that I made with another fishy one I made and got super happy that the tattoo looks so cute next to the Mandala like pattern of the fabric used for these shorts/panties, ok they are shorts, but I am going to make them dance panties and there is nothing you can do about it so nerrr. If you want to come at me for it, I may just take you down with a wet fish, how you like that – I am very feisty tonight, maybe they are fighting panties not dance ones….or even better Dance Battle Panties – ok now I am even more in love with them, honestly my favourite dance movie genre.
In other exciting news, One Bad Pixel has started updating some of their clothing to now include Cinnamon & Chai sizes, so I ran over and updated all the things, and this bra top is from the babytux outfit and has bows and straps that turn off and on via a HUD.

Cinnamon & Chai – Chai Dorothy

Cinnamon & Chai - Chai Dorothy

I have been looking at my blog of late, the really past past stuff, and I was thinking of going over older items, seeing how they hold up now, and my inventory is vast so there are potentially things that I did not feature in full, or things I did not ever unpack on a whirlwind spending spree. I want to try and rectify that, and also just see how things can work together still today with the changes over time.

I ended up looking at a post from early 2015, when we still had standard sizing, and found out that as mentioned that when I went shopping at E-clipse and purchased a lot of things and featured a lot of things I did not end up unpacking all of the things. I had grabbed this great top in multiple colours and never even wore it. It is even open backed which is so cute. It came in standard sizing which was perfect because I was wearing the Chai body of Cinnamon & Chai and not only did it fit without needing alpha but I was able to fit one of the fitted tank tops under it that is also mesh. because of the style it needed to be loose and because of that it also fit perfectly over my jeans.

Now I do have jeans that are Cinnamon & Chai fit but I wanted to see if I could get away with wearing these Coco high waist ones, and again with a little alpha help, it was great, the tiny bit of stomach pokes over the front, but the top I am wearing is not a concern there and the back fit perfectly.

I was loving all this blue, so I decided to look at what flats I had that may fit my Cinnamon & Chai feet, and found these amazing shoes that I had worn in the past, but with the socks turned off and with them on I was loving the blue and white combo, and then by some crazy bloggers fate they are also called Dorothy, so my shirt is Dorothy and my Shoes are Dorothy and that is about as perfect as it can get without trying.

Also a big win is that these rings by Yummy made for the Slink hands also fit the Cinnamon & Chai, so I am living my best Slife and having a great time revisiting older items, I hope the look inspires you to not only go for the new and seek out some older items that you may have not given enough attention in the past.

Cinnamon & Chai / Slink Hourglass – The Expanse

Cinnamon & Chai - Slink - The Expanse

 

When I joined the internet – I was a very late catcher on – I first heard the expression ” Accent Addict ” ok the second word was not addict but the expression comes from those that are addicted to accents that differ enough from their own to make gimme gimme hands at the person speaking. I do love accents – although I would never call myself that – I tend to be a very quick to pick them up also, much to my Mums discontent as she gets very upset when she calls me after being on skype with Mel or Whimsy, and she says to stop speaking American at her. Which is funny because according to those I know she has her own accent that I cannot actually hear, but she does not like when I make changes to my me, she decided she made me perfect and I am not allowed to make changes.

I digress though, the reason for this whole post is pretty much because of the voice of an Actor that every time I hear her I just wish I could listen to her all day long. She needs to be hired by the Calm app or just make her own meditative app and rake in the moola. The actress is Shohreh Aghdashloo and her voice could change lives. Mel recently binged The Expanse which she is in, and while I did not get very far into it myself I did state that if they could just give her a spin off show of her actual role and everything going on while the other stories are going on I would be so into that. Alas no, but then we started watching Arcane and all of a sudden a military lady walks into the bar and starts talking and my ears went OMG it is her.

So todays outfit on the right was definitely inspired by her, and not at all what the creator had in mind for it I am sure. It is actually a very revealing set, it comes with panties and a small bandeau top and all texture change which is marvelous but I wanted to do something more, and the dress component really gave me those Dystopian Future/Egyptian Sci Fi with a bit of military vibe. Putting it with a knit bodysuit and some gorgeous thigh highs in leather I was ready to rock my Chai body – needing to use Chai as the bodysuit has the SL UV.

Then on the left worn with Slink Hourglass I have another great outfit by the same creator, that has options for sleeves on and off, neck on and off and so many variations of the colours with sheer or solid etc. This one I kept as is, because it is also a perfect accompaniment to that previous vibe and I really love the coupling a lot. I hope you do also.

Cinnamon & Chai – Cinnamon, Slink Physique Original – Snuggle

Cinnamon & Chai - Cinnamon Slink Physique Original - Snuggle

Bakes on mesh and alphas, oh how I love thee. So as mentioned the other day I went to C’est La Vie and picked up a few things, and two of those things were these gorgeous cardigan with dresses items. The first on the right actually has the sleeves into the pockets so to wear them you just hide your arms and hands. So while I was at it, I created a custom alpha, and wore the Hourglass size with the Cinnamon body and the fit was amazing, so happy that I get to wear this delight on any of the three bodies I wear, as it came in Slink Original and Slink Hourglass and fits my Cinnamon & Chai oh happy days. (if you want to wear it that way too and need an alpha, IM me).
The singular colour when choosing is actually the cardigan colour, you get all the colours of the dresses in a HUD the price is amazing for so many options, and as I had yet to wear the Natasha shoes from Athor in a post the combination of the wood in brown and black leather strap, with the black and brown combo of the dress and cardigan, just made it a match made in happiness.
The other cardigan and dress combination I wore with the Slink Original option and matching them up with the Sigourney boots that have recently been updated to include Cinnamon & Chai as well, make everything so mix and matchy for me.

Speaking of match, I went to No.Match and bought up a few styles, I really love their hat hair selection and this style with the streaks at the front is just so lovely, it will  (could) be my go to hair for a bit – seriously I laugh every time I try and say that, like I don’t change hair on the hour if I am in world, but I mean it when I think it.

Cinnamon & Chai – Chai Fluff n Stuff

Cinnamon & Chai - Chai  Fluff n Stuff

So this look came together in various ways, it started at one colour palette and then went in a completely different direction. It was all about the pants at first, I just really like the leatherwork and the style, and while the black was going to be easier, I kept leaning towards the blue. I had this awesome jacket in patterns options but really needed some solid so went to Marketplace and the yellow just jumped out at me and that was it, it was set the blue pants and yellow jacket I was a very happy me.

I have done some very odd things in this post though, well not really odd, just very Sasy. The top is from Sn@tch and while I went through roughly 60+ tops to find one I liked best, I did tint it to match the blue, yay for mod. I even have Sn@tch eyeshadow on and tinted that for a deeper blue. I had remembered that I wanted to visit C’est La Vie and realised that they had a booth at Shop n Hop (Open until 2nd Jan) and I ran over and bought some things, and grabbed the gift, not realising it would bring everything together and change the look to a lot more playful, how awesome is that pose for the hand holding the clutch, and it has colour texture options, but yay for yellow.

Then I pulled out this pomme hair attachments, and supersized them, moved them around a bit, and was very pleased with the result, but then I had some kind of ‘lets rez items’ from my inventory moments and got lost in that for about an hour and suddenly I had all of these random things I have made over the years littering my floor – I honestly do not even remember some of the things at all – but one item was a bow, and while it was for some Christmas things we made in the past, I instantly shrunk it down, added a tint and some specular shine and voila instant hairbows. Sometimes it is just that easy and fun to make yourself something that works with your look, and if you cannot make it yourself, and it is not something you can find in a store, check out Marketplace and see if anyone has made a full perms item you can play around with. Finishing it off with these great earrings by Midna that have so many colours and options, that yellow being one of them was a win win.

Cinnamon & Chai – Cinnamon White on White

Cinnamon & Chai - Cinnamon Love

I mentioned the other day how I was racing over to get this new dress by Athor made for Cinnamon & Chai, and it surpassed my expectations. I grabbed the fatpack if the dress and the shoes, but decided to save the shoes for another post, instead wearing these great boots from Cinnamon & Chai.

So many laces, I am glad that in Second Life we have secret lacing elves that take care of such things for us, because otherwise it would take hours to get ready, and I am just not that kind of girl. The fit of the dress is amazing, the style suits the body superbly and I loved it on sight. Then the hard part was deciding which colour to wear and then finding out I could change the laces colours with the fatpack HUD I was even more invested, but the white on white just felt right.

Cinnamon & Chai – Cinnamon My Path

Cinnamon & Chai - Cinnamon My Path

I will never get tired of bakes on mesh and now with a custom UV and the ability to one arm, one hand and one foot, not to just do things in the moment. Such as the case with my arm tattoo today, I whipped it up in PS and it just felt so perfect for me in the moment. I am going to take a long while to get over the losses I have experienced this year, but if I keep on a path that makes me feel better overall then you never know what can happen.

This dress is a stunning creation by a new to me brand Harmonia. They not only created this dress in superb colours, but the strap work fitting to the shoulders perfectly is just one of those things you take note of. I loved this colour on sight, and even added a tint to my hair to keep the look fluid. Just in time the Margot Slippers being updated to now include Cinnamon & Chai (redelivery if you already have them) gave me a chance to create a lovely look that may seem casual at first but definitely has that dance all night into the New Year vibe going on.
