Blogotex – a Business/Blogger resource for Second Life

Blogotex is a new product for store owners to use to keep track of Bloggers. It can be something they maintain themselves, or they can delegate it to their Blogger Managers, Store Managers or Business Partners. The amount of people that will have access to one brands information will vary depending on the level purchased. You can also be a Manager of more than one brand using the system, so this makes for ease of use for many stores.

I have put together a video, that is very long, but is me starting from the same point you will, and trying each option included. From signing up, purchasing the item, and then implementing it. I think that everyone that has a store and has bloggers needs to give it a run, as you can purchase it for one week and trial it out, it is definitely worth it to sit down and take the time to do that.

There are incredible videos on the Blogotex.com website, incredibly informative, but they already know how to use it :) so I wanted to give a new to me birdseye view to people, and as I had already been contacted by a store owner asking me if it was something I was familiar with, and I had already looked into doing coverage on it, it all came together nicely.

Also as a blogger, this is a very streamlined option for us to use, many stores have been making spreadsheets and so on, and while that is easy for them to use, this is a system that gives bloggers a space where they can look at what they have done, what they have to do, and how to better manage their use of products.

I also suggest in my video ways in which this may benefit events…so have a look at me running through it, making mistakes, fixing the mistakes and finding all the treasures that this product has to offer.

I am a blogger,  but I am also someone that works with many stores behind the scenes, run events and own my own stores…so this is coming at this from all sides.

I hope you enjoy the video…..

With the help of one of Whimsy’s areas at home, I was able to rez the pieces from the Modern Farmouse set by Cheeky Pea, of course as all things eventuate, my main pics cropped most of it out, silly me. I went back and took another along the lines pic, and you can see that taking this inside dining set outside is a definite must do, if you have the space. I rezzed it under the treehouse by Soy from a past C88 and just really like the idea of that. Making the most of the space you have, by utilising different pieces together.

This outfit started with these great pants from Mutresse at this round of Collabor88. They are beautifully shaped, very tailored with a vintage feel to them. The laced up fronts though give them a very now look. As with Mutresse items of the past, these pants have a hud that allows for texture changing to all facets of the item. My favourite addition, in the thinking it through department, is the laces bow/tie off option, so that if your shoes have straps and the two collide,  you can just turn them off…more creators need to think ahead in that way.

It was an easy decision on the colour palette of the look, once I saw that Tres blah had done a folk top, there is also a dress version with belt, that is also available for purchase at C88. So beautifully created, and the cream/white and red version is divine.

Speaking of divine, Mandala never fails to create stunning pieces of jewellery, and these bangles not only look great, they even had red peonies on a creamy background as one of the options for texture, so it all ties together seamlessly.

I remembered some boho-esque hairstyles at Hair Fair last year, and No.Match came through with this style with sunglasses included, and the ability to change the fabric, so of course red and white ruled the day there as well.

Angelina is the name of the very pretty skin that I have on my Simone Bento head. The skin is by Glam Affair and is at C88 now. Great makeups included, and brow options and a no brow option if you have others you prefer.

LeLutka just updated their Simone head, and now the lipstick layer is full lower half of the face, and the tattoo layer includes the mouth, so you can stack and make many more delights for this head as a creator, or with your own skills and the personalise tab on the hud.

LeLutka just unveiled their brand new store build, and it is fabulous. With the new store came some fun add on items, human and beast teeth, and 8 sets of gorgeous lashes applier packs. The human teeth include braces and gems, and the beast teeth include nightmares – not really but the first time I tried them on, I was scared. You have the option of fang types, blood with and without lipstick. You also have bloodied teeth and greyed teeth. The human options have teeth colours, as well as gum and tongue light to dark options. Normal, Gapped and spaced teeth options, the spaced are perfect for the braces for realism. All so much fun.

They made me think of that first kill, and it not necessarily being the most ladylike of experiences. So with the help of some great hair by Mina that has a blood version – how cool is that – and the blood and wounds appliers by Izzie’s…I had a look that just made my own skin crawl.

The dress is by Pixicat, its a fabulous latex dress, perfect for wiping off splatter if needed.

Dance Panties 2017 New

New Dance Panties

Many moons ago, I did a post called about Dance Panties, and then a follow up post called More than Dance Panties Now… the dance panties came about from spending hours in a skybox sorting inventory, wearing some cute undies and dancing away while trying on various items and discovering the craziness that is inventory overload.

The dance panties actually ended up being the panties used in my Sasypants.com logo, if you notice on the last S that is what those things are. So the other day I was at Uber, shopping until I dropped, and I came across these fab boy panties by Fashionably Dead. They are mesh, they are Manties and they are fabulous.

Because of the dance concept, what better top to wear with it, than this great one that reminds me of Olivia’s in the last scenes of Grease. Shining up my dance shoes, these gorgeous strappy bootstyle pumps by Pure Poison are so cool, you get a hud that allows you to change parts of the shoe, so I went with white straps interwoven with the black, to complete my black and white look.

I am trying out a new to me skin brand Insol, the skin is Bianca and is available at Uber also. It has brow and freckle options. Wearing it with this stunner hairstyle by Mina, that is long soft waves.

Bloggers Challenge/Tips & Tricks – Redelivery

Bloggers Challenge - teach me something

Taking on my own Bloggers Challenge today, which is titled ‘teach me something’. I have learned many things from blogs over the years, store blogs and fashion blogs. I realised the other day there was a lack of that kind of constant bits and pieces from all over the place, or maybe I am just missing them, but it inspired me to put the challenge out there on SL Bloggers Support.

This is something that I do, Whimsy does it also, and it proves to be very easy to get things needed very quickly. It is using the E2V vending systems Redelivery options in a different and more versatile way ongoing.

I hope you enjoy the video…

Kitty Kitty Bow Bow

Kitty Kitty Bow Bow

Feeling very pin up, with this great hair by Vanity hair that is at this round of Hairology. I was able to colour change the bow, and went from there with a great mix of yellow and black. I hit up AlaskaMetro the other day, bought all the appliers in sight,  if you are a LeLutka head wearer, you need to get on over there and buy it all.

Mixing the brows and shadow with this great new LeLutka appliers skin by Izzie’s called Daphne, it is so pretty and has these great moles as an option…then mixing in her Glamorous lipstick options, she has appliers scattered all over the place, and it is worth the hop skip and jump.

Everything with my bow theme just evolved from the hair, the nails have bows, the leggings have bows and even the shoes have bows, which with texture change options kept my black and yellow mission strong.

Once I was all vamped up, with the help of a trip to Mimikri with Whimsy, it was time to strike a pose with this gorgeous furniture by Cheeky Pea, the sofa is part of her Epiphany release, and the work that went into creating the La Belle themed set is amazing. Some curtains added charm, and all set out in the new Nomad Ballet Academy that is at this round of C88 and is WOWza.

First up attention to the hair with great knitted beanie – please note I did add tendrils to fall to the sides, for a more realistic look as I am upside down. The hair is at this months round of Hairology, a great event for hair lovers. The beanie has different texture options, and the colour chosen just worked so well with the colour combinations I chose for the clothing items.

The clothing is a mix of Collabor88 releases, and a great sports bra that came with a FLF item a few weeks ago at Vinyl. The bra was just a part of the set, and came with a fatpack hud full of colours, a great deal even if purchased at full price.

With all the great hud options of the items, the Blueberry pants, the Addams shoes and the Vinyl bra, I was able to combine them all into the same mix of colours. I rearranged the amazing Yoga Studio by The Loft, and added a lovely Bamboo planter by Cheeky Pea, feeling all Zen now. Such beautiful pieces head to toe and surroundings. If you are limited in space in your SL, then I suggest finding such marvels as these, because when in smaller space, being this relaxed changes the feeling of confinement a lot.

The Yoga mat has postes, but I used some great ones by Voir that I had.
