The Hybrid Theory of Y2K

Music has been a huge impact on my life since I was a child and when I saw that these MadPea CDs (from their MadPea Y2K Game gacha set at Rewind) each had their own original music or voiceover clips, I greedily had to get my hands on them and play them all! With these CDs (10 total) working like they do in RL by popping them into the portable CD player as well as the disc tray of the computer, both items played the sound clips. Personally, I love the portable CD player because it functions exactly like my first CD player I ever had! You pop open the CD player, insert the CD into it, close the lid and hit play, watching the disc spin round and round through the window of the CD player as it reads the disc.

MadPea Y2K Retro | Mine & Yours

FYI – The MadPea Y2K Game gacha has a little surprise interactive activity if you collect all the CDs and use them in the computer (Rare). You also get an achievement from it for those completionist MadPea fans!

The MadPea Y2K Game gacha consists of 26 Common and 1 Rare items in this set. Only part of the set is shown above in my blog picture. Not shown are the full set of 10 playable CDs with original music and voiceovers, 3 different colored portable CD players, 3 different colored headsets, and 4 different colored desk lamps. Also, the modem plays the oh-so-nostalgic dial-up tone we all know and love when we all connected to the internet to chat on AIM, check our emails, or download music. It is amazing how much technology has changed through the years.

Special shout out to the real life talent of the following people who made the variety of CDs possible!

✄ Original Music by: Aitolda Cooljoke, Harter Fall, Pandagroov Windstorm, Stefan Hansen, and Waghorne Truss

✄ Voiceovers by: Krow Ames, Sarai Wise, Oobleck, anesphitia, Mayafayy, Jigzzz Hazelnut, iAmTheMadHatter, Veruca Beck, boldmiss, and Kaylahny

Prepping for the ….

Well hii everyone! Gosh this look … I can’t even right now tell you how much fun I had playing around with this look.  I think once again I have found a new head.  Shh, dont judge me! We all have our vices and I think mine are shoes, hair, heads, coffee….OK so I have a lot of vices, but I am allowed to have them.  That is what makes my blogging job here so fun! So, if you were lucky a few weeks back LAQ released a new head for like 500L! I was like are you kidding me! A full bento head for like a really amazing price and she is GORGEOUS! I mean I am loving this head.  Its a mix of not old … but not uber looking young.  She has that I am adulting look to her.  Now I am going to tell you, the shape that she comes with is great, but my preferences is to have a little more meat on my bones.  But the face is literally untouched for the most part.  I think I might have made tiny adjustments to fit the skin a bit more.  NOW let me tell you like my other LAQ head, this skin is the best version for her. I have not found any other skin that I adored on this head which like I said last time is a rarity for me.  But at the same time it makes my life easier because I don’t have to hunt and look for a skin that makes me feel beautiful! Besides the reaction I got from Caleb when he seen me in it … yea, I think I will be keeping this head for a bit (at least till the next head comes out) Shhh Vices!!!

Alright, so the things I am wearing … gosh there is a lot going on here. I am wearing from Apple May items from Collabor88! Its a week into the event and you can totally get in now with out all the rush of the crazed shoppers that want to go on the first day! You know like me, I will spend so much time trying to get in … but that is besides the point.  This outfit, is gorgeous and there are several ways to wear it.  You have this beautiful head band (which I paired with Exile hair from the event!) Then you have the corset and panties, now the corset in the fat pack gives you a ton of colors to play with.  Which every girl needs is variety! But you have the option to wear just the corset or you can wear the top with it.  I have chosen to keep the top on for now.  That comes off later *winks*.  Believe me this is a very fun and detailed outfit to have specially if you wanting to impress that special someone in your life! This will definitely get their attention.

Now another staple piece to my outfit is the accessories I have from Cae.  YES more Cae, because you need all the things from her.  I am dying for these layered necklaces she keeps making.  The tiers are beautiful for lining the neck and keep the attention focus in places that they should be 🙂 But its a great compliment to the outfit.  With her items you get the HUD that allows you to change the stone and metal colors of EACH section.  Which give you so many opportunities to create a look that you would love.  As always I am impressed with her skills in creating things that make me feel so pretty.  And at her store you can pick up gift cards to give to your loved ones so they can experience her greatness too!

Ok so last but not least … which is a bit of a new thing for me.  The background items I am using.  These items have come from Deco Crate.  Now, Caleb purchased the crate so I have to credit him on rezzing these items out for me.  And now I wished I purchased this one because WOW.  He kept rezzing these things out and I was like … OH BABY I WANT THAT! or I NEED THAT TOO! and he would just look at me like I was crazy.  This box was totally for the girly girl in me.  So I am going to list the items below so you can see what was set out.  But omgosh, so cute and fun to play with! PS the pose I am using this pose is in the vanity.  Sooo I am keeping my revolution up! Just saying. I didn’t fail yet!

Merry Christmas From Us!

MERRY CHRISTMAS!!

A really quick post for you all this beautiful morning. Hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday so far, and plenty more celebration ahead! Wanted to share this amazing MadPea Christmas Hunt prize that would be perfect if you have little ones to celebrate Christmas with. Our daughter ran down Christmas morning from her room, jumped on our bed to wake us up and made a mad dash to the Christmas tree to find this amazing and official certificate from Santa Claus. The look on her face was priceless, and she was beaming from ear to ear. We loved it so much that we had to take a family picture to celebrate what an amazing child Nessy has been the whole year!

Featured: MadPea Christmas Certificate of Good Behavior by MadPea (MadPea Christmas Hunt Prize)

Tip: Scaling down through stretching will not work if you want the certificate to go smaller (I think it is the name plate that has been sized down to the minimum SL dimension already on one of its sides so you cannot go beyond that when linked together with something else. Instead, use a resizer script that ignores minimum dimension restraint that will conveniently help you resize the item as a whole.)

Also wanted to share a little memory a week before Christmas when we visited Santa on our land. He set up a little cottage area for him to stay at when Nessy went to visit him. She had received his letter, as Santa wanted to check up on Nessy before Christmas just to make sure she was still on track for staying on the Nice List. Merry Christmas, everyone! Stay warm and enjoy the company of loved ones around you this beautiful holiday season <3 From us to you, Merry Christmas.

Bright and Sunny With You!

Hello my beauties! I am back with another gorgeous scene, the boyfriend set up some amazing things we have bought from our shoppings this weekend.  So I am going to start with my Fifty Linden Friday set.  You will see on the side of the picture a lovely bar set that is by What Next.  Now I have been shopping What Next items for a long time and she has been around for a while! What I love about her items is they are full of quality.  Pretty designs and great textures.  This set definately stands up to that standard.  What you can purchase are two different items, the gorgeous bar and chair set and then the other item would be the alcohol trays.  All of which are great to start your summer with.

Next up is the amazing Cheeky Pea item which you can get at Uber! That is right Uber is now open and we manage to get in on the first day, because we had to have some of these items.  Now this very attractive Jacuzzi set comes with the shelter, the pool, chair swing and rug … all items are listed below.  This is is a great little set to have in the corner of your plot that gives off the little secret hidaway under some trees.  This set comes in both Adult and PG version, and we have the adult version set up.  The only difference is the poses in terms of the items you get.  This to me is a must have set.  If you like little escapes on your land then this is for you! ♥
