Fight of the Bumblee

Fight of the Bumblee
 "Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I LEARN." 
-Benjamin Franklin
I'm so going to discuss the "Second Chance Event" again, but first let me share something a little more personal about what is happening in Bells' RL life. 

Recently, I've been attempting to learn how to play ukulele in RL. I don't want to call this an impulse purchase because truth be told for the last two years I wanted to learn how to play this instrument. I just really wanted to be taught by someone so I could learn to play properly. I found myself motivated by an overwhelming feeling of sadness that blogging, shopping and eating delicious food couldn't fix.

I had to find something that could provide me with a productive outlet to channel my sadness, rather than crying. (Music is usually the fix.) So as of three weeks ago I can happily say that I am now the proud owner of my very own little Ukelelelelele, I mean Ukelele or Uke for short. I posted photos on my flickr if you want to perve. It's ok, I won't complain ;)

Now, let's segway back to SL goodness.  I really had a happy moment when I saw this pose set that Jessica13 Eracktor of Jess Poses created for June's round of Second Chance. A string instrument pose set, ahhh be still my bleating heart. Now, if I could just see some really cute Uke poses my heart would flutter at the speed of a bumblebee taking flight.

Jess's pose set comes complete with a total of 4 poses all with props of a violin and bow. They are really cute. The Second Chance Event is ending its June's round soon, so please get your fannies over quickly and pick up a deal or two. Don't miss out on these absolutely fabulous off that so many SL designers have places out for us.

.....and yes, I do know the song is called, "FLIGHT of the bumblebee", not "Fight of the bumblebee", but I seriously couldn't help making the puny reference.

Seven Nation Army

 Don't want to hear about it
Every single one's got a story to tell
Everyone knows about it
From the Queen of England to the hounds of hell
-The White Stripes, Seven Nation Army

 This month's Second Chance event is underway which means I'm positing my favorites out of the bunch. This is the first of a few upcoming posts geared to highlight the goodies that managed to make it's way into my cross-hairs for the month of June.

First off, The background, The Bearded Guy has a Seven Nation Army set that made me Boom with excitement. I know, I’m a girly girl, but honestly, I love things that go BOOM!

I used to play Halo. I know old school. First Person Shooter games really resonate with younger Bells and yes, Its been years since I've done any real console gaming. Seven Nation Army tapped into that badass woman mentality that I need when playing these games. It really makes me want to console game again. Women in video games is something I will discuss at another time. I'm getting off topic here. Back to The Bearded Guy.

When purchasing The Seven Nation Army set there are a couple of purchase options available.
1) a full complete set that is currently at 50% it's normal price
2) smaller individual randomized Gacha versions that can be purchased.

I opted for purchasing Gacha items at 25L a pop. I was thrilled with what I was able to get with my play. The Boss Tent, Two Med Kits a Grenade, The Sentry Chain Gun and Warrior TT.

I absolutely LOVE the Seven Nation Army set. I might end up playing with my new toys for a couple of days. I have some images of war and fighter girls brewing in my head that I might need to release soon. I only wish these items were drive-able and actually contained animations in them. They would make a great series.

Next, I'd like to point out the killer lingerie set from Ricielli. Ricielli isn't a store that is new to me, My Maleficent posts did use one of Ricielli's sets previously. What I have discovered is that I am quickly becoming a BIG fan of Ricielli's designs. Ricielli Tonia Lingerie set has me completely enchanted by the way the items fit my avatar and the details that have been used to create the right aesthetic of sleek and sexy. My favorite part of this lingerie set is the hips. I love all the binds, straps and the garters that are added. Something about straps that is just fun to play with in SL and RL.

I paired the lingerie set with a few goodies I had from a previous Second Chance round. From April's round, Brii Underground released a Laura Croft set. I'm wearing the guns directly from that set.

I also paired very stunning pair of boots from Ricielli, The Cuissard Boot. The match effortlessly helping to create a monochromatic look which might be ideal for hiding in the desert dunes.

Stay tuned in for another post soon highlighting more goodies from The Second Chance Event.

**Note, All items mentioned in this post are PURCHASED from the vendors. I did not receive review copies. I make it a point to only highlight items that I would normally showcase on my blog, in an effort to maintain a sense of quality and pride in my recommendations as a tenured blogger of 12 years.
