On May 1st, a charitable event starts for Amesha Jewell — the owner and creator of Aeva // Heartsick. I am donating 75% of my sales, and every outfit I have out is marked at 100L. Unfortunately, I don’t have anything new to share, I have a few items that have not been for sale that were previously used in hunts or special events, but nothing really new.
Allow me to explain why I haven’t done much these days… not even log in to SL other than for a short amount of time.
Some of you may, or may not, know that I was born and raised less than 20 miles outside of Boston, and have lived in the actual city of Boston for over 15 years. I’m a second generation Bostonian too! But, no one would know that I live on Boylston Street… and this is not information that I would have shared either before April 15th. As you know, that was a fateful day in our city, the day something I never imagined happening… happened.
I was working from home that day since it was Patriot’s Day and the Boston Marathon was going on… I don’t like crowds and like them even less when I’m trying to go to work… LOL.» More reading…
It’s been April now a couple of weeks, I know, but I’ve been busy
New group gift is in store if you haven’t been by to pick it up. Jess is in slate and comes with boots, tie and glasses. Cost is L$50 to join and you get monthly group gifts like this for free:
“Rainy Days are Here Again” hunt starts on April 15th, and with minutes to spare, I got the outfit, Avril in B&W Dotty, done.. You get a 100% rigged mesh romper plus wellies, umbrella and bangles that are non-rigged mesh. The earrings and necklace are sculpted prim. This outfit reminds me of being a kid and the fact that I loved, I mean LOVED, the water when the weather got warm (or not, if there was an indoor pool)… so much so, I loved to go outside and play in the rain.
For more information on the hunt, check out this webpage: http://jadescreationspresents.wordpress.com/rainy-days-are-here-again-hunt/ The hint for jazzitude is “I’m not hiding from the rain, I’m playing by the water”
This week, the 2Fer Sale is changing ever so slightly. First off, the name is now 2Fer Tuesdays! I love 2Fer Tuesday, I used to do 2Fer Tuesday requests when I DJ’d on Tuesdays (2 songs, same artist).
That means that you only get 1 Day to get these deals.
However, and this is a great bonus, we can offer you items for under L$100!
This week, I have 2, 2Fer Deals for you. A L$40 deal and a L$100 deal.
I’m pretty excited to be able to offer some less expensive items at a lower price. I love to be able to bring these sales to you, and if you know of any Newbies, 40 Linden is budget friendly for a 2-pack of tank tops and a shrug. In black and very versatile with any wardrobe:
L$100 is two complete outfits. Includes everything in the original for only L$100!

Happy bargain hunting and I am working on your April gift as we speak. Don’t forget to grab your March group gift as well as wrap up the Green and Loving It Hunt http://jadescreationspresents.wordpress.com/prize-previews/ and don’t forget about the awesome Spring Cart Sale: http://jazzitudeiwontbelabeled.wordpress.com/2013/03/18/spring-cart-sale/
Well, I don’t want to bore you with posting 2 videos, even though I always loved playing 2Fer Tuesday songs… LOL… I think this song will do.» More reading…
The Spring Cart Sale begins today. http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Prescott/142/11/21
It’s at the same location as the Valentines Day Cart Sale… and lots of great stores with some really cute things are out at great prices.
Just like the last cart sale, everyone has to have at least one item for L$10, one for L$50 and one to the theme… this time Spring or Easter.
On top of those offerings, I also have a gatcha. If you follow this blog, you might recognize it as the same ones from Fashion For Life… only different. I swapped out one that I made specifically for that event, and added 3 more. 12 in total. You can also find this gatcha at the Flagship store.
On to the photos!
First up, you will find 2 brand new releases at the cart sale you won’t find at the store… and on a special new-release price! Melinda is a 100% Rigged Mesh Capri-pant, sleeveless jumpsuit with a color HUD to change the color of the bow. Both of these are white bottoms/pattern top. You also get sculpty shoes, bracelets (prims) and a non-rigged mesh necklace:
Gatcha: 12 Designs, L$25 per play… Transferable Sweatshirts. Special ASCII Bunny added for Easter.» More reading…
2Fer Sales for Week 6 are out for jazzitude right now. It runs from March 12th through the 13th. I sent out the official list in the group notices, but you should also be able to see them on this website soon: http://2fersale.wordpress.com/
This week is “I can’t wait for summer”. You get Team Jazzitude in Pink and Sweet Summer in Tiki… both for only $L100. That’s less than one outfit alone (normal price is L$249 each).
While in the store, don’t forget to pick up your group gift and check out the Clearance Sales Garden… I’ve added a dollarbie fountain even!
Also, Fashion for Life is running until March 17th. If you haven’t gone, you should check it out. There’s more than just shopping. There’s beautiful builds, events and fashion shows.

Here is a blog with a list of all the stores and some gorgeous photos of the sims: http://www.slenquirer.com/2013/03/somewhere-in-metaverse.html
Fashion For Life opened today, and if you haven’t been over yet, it’s awesome!
I was so nervous then so excited! I was having a bittersweet moment knowing my friend wouldn’t see this, but then something happened that touched me so deeply.
The sponsor of Hanging Gardens of Babylon is Tres Beau. Today I found out that she is the designer of my friend Carrie’s wedding dress. Carrie’s wedding day was so very special to her and to us because if you read my blog, you know a month later she passed away from cancer. Well, I decided today, to send the designer from Tres Beau a thank you note for sponsoring the sim and also being such a special part of Carrie’s day. I don’t know about you, but I believe in signs. My entire participation in Fashion for Life, from the application to the opening day now, has been one big sign for me. Anyhow, the designer contacted me (I was thrilled!) and we chit-chatted a little bit. She’s so nice. Later on, she was on the air with BOSL Radio and gave me and Carrie a shout out. I was really starting to tear up, as I am now.» More reading…
Fashion for Life is almost here! It opens at Midnight on March 9th.
At the jazzitude location, there are 8 items where 100% will be donated to Relay for Life… 4 of them are brand new and not available at the store… 2 of them will never be available again. The other 4 is all the Carrie outfits.
You can donate to the kiosk in the store and receive a free gift… even $1L will help and you’ll get the gift. It’s a mesh t-shirt, jeans and sneakers I made that are not for sale yet in Jazzitude. There’s one for men and one for women (boxed together).
The gacha machines are all centrally located in one spot at International plaza.
On to some pictures! Visit the store, find these pictures (they aren’t hard to find, some are rather large), touch them and get the landmark to jazzitude at Hanging Gardens of Babylon
These 2 new releases just for the event:
Elsa in Relay for Life colors and pattern & Carrie in special edition Relay For Life: These two outfits are brand new for the event. They will be available after the event, but buy them at Fashion for Life, and all the money goes to Relay for Life:
Melinda is a 100% Mesh Jumper (Comes with accessories & Shoes).» More reading…
New group gift is out in store now! It’s March and that means St. Patrick’s day! I wanted to do something fun for your celebrations, but also you could use pieces of this outfit on it’s own. You get a mesh t-shirt in 5 sizes (and I make an optional glitch shirt with it to hide any glitching when you move). Green Tartan Plaid Cigarette pants, Shamrock sneakers, bra and panties plus a set of bangles and ring. The bangles are copy so if you want another for each arm… go for it! T-shirt is the only thing that is mesh.
I also wanted to share with you another thing you will be able to find from jazzitude at the upcoming Fashion for Life event: Gachas! My first ever gacha offering. I’ve been wanting to put together a gacha for over a year now, but I never was motivated… lol. During the event, the money will go to Relay for Life.
You have the chance to get one of the 10 designs of the mesh sweatshirts/pullovers for only L$25. They are transferable so if you get one you don’t like, you can give it to a friend and keep trying. Remember, this starts on March 9th, so you can’t get them until then and during the event, they will only be available there (not at the store).» More reading…
We are getting closer to the Fashion for Life event on March 9th! This is my first major and large event I’ve ever participated in. My stress level is somewhat high, because I want this all to be perfect… yah, yah, my friend Cherri has been calling me a Virgo. LOL… I’m also very excited to be a participant and to be helping, in some small way, a great cause.
If you don’t know about this, it’s a week-long event over 7 Sims, featuring many awesome designers. There will be fashion shows, parties, and of course… SHOPPING! Yay! Each store will have at least 3 exclusives (during the event you will only be able to buy it at Fashion for Life) and previously unreleased items for sale for the event, with 100% of the profits from their three items going to Relay For Life/American Cancer Society. Even though it’s an American based charity, they are well-known for being more world wide, so don’t let the name fool you! Start saving your lindens because there are going to be some awesome things for sale and all the money goes to a fantastic charity. I don’t think there is one of us that has not been touched by cancer, either ourselves or our friends and family.» More reading…
I have a 2fer offering to share with you, but first, I wanted to share with you some sad news. My mentor for building and designing in Second Life, Carrie Baikokudo (Carrie Aldrin/Blake), the name sake of one of my outfits, a model, a wife, a mother, a friend… has lost her battle with cancer on February 24, 2013. She was a designer as well, owning the store “Serenity in the Sun”. She loved helping newbies and is the reason I participate in Freebies 4 Newbies too! I hope in a small way, I will carry on her legacy in Second Life.
She left our world far too soon, but she left it a lot better than when she arrived.
She was just one of those people (one that the cynical side of me, would think was fake… but she was all too real). She just had a way about her that could break down walls and find a way in to even the coldest person’s heart. She was just so nice to everyone. She always had an encouraging word, something funny to say, a way to brighten your day, and she faced all of her struggles in life with a smile and with grace.» More reading…
