Rockberry and Slice of Summer

**Edit:  The MM has been taken out of the store.  The designer, Heather Beebe, sent the following message:  

“I am so disappointed in the number of people complaining about the MM and saying how I should do things in my group, in my store just because it wasn’t just handed to them.  So… the MM has been removed and replaced with the FREE Uma skins. You don’t have to pay for it, work for it or even wait for it, just wear your group tag and you can have it. I would like to say thank you to all who stand behind me and appreciate all that I do.”

*********************************************************

There is soooo much good stuff out there right now, I am overwhelmed on what to blog!   But a notice went out in the Rockberry Group last night that a new Uma skin with red tintable lips was going into the Midnight Mania board.  Well, let me tell you, chaos ensued.  It was a madhouse…the board couldn’t handle it…it took about 5 minutes for every click to register, the sim got restarted 3 times…and at the end of it…we couldn’t lock it down before midnight.  There just wasn’t time, with the way the sim was lagged….and that poor board…it had no idea what had hit it.
So at midnight, it all started again.  I believe the board locked down in a couple hours, and the prize was given out at some point this morning.  So, the board is open again, and the number of hits has been raised to 599. 
I did talk to the designer, and she said this skin will be in there for more than one day, so don’t panic if you can’t get in, or the board is locked again.  There will be time. 
Between that, and the Slice of Summer hunt, I am getting nothing done! 

Here is the skin:

I love the eyebrows and eyemakeup on this skin, and the body is very soft and lovely like all the Uma skins are.  I tinted the lips very dark red, but you can go much lighter if you like.  The skin comes in 4 tones, so there should be a tone for everyone!
I am wearing an Ibizarre bathing suit that is free at the Pure sim right now, along with a necklace that is also one of the free gifts at the Pure sim.

The adorable dress on the left is the Slice of Summer Gift from Evie’s Closet.  It is just beautiful, shimmery and flows wonderfully. 
The dress on the right is a new store opening gift from Sugarcube.  You need join the group to buy this.   The jewelry is from Ear Candy and is a gift at the new Elliot sim opening.  There are a lot of gift boxes out, so that is worth a trip.

This dress is the Slice of Summer gift from Sweeter Than Candy.  It is really adorable, and also has a corset laced back, so the top would be cute on it’s own, also. 
The shoes and bangle, (which you can’t quite see) are from MJ+DADA.  I really like the bangle a lot, and it comes in 2 styles, and didn’t realize until I was editing the pics that you couldn’t see it.  I suck! 
The necklace is part of the Twisted and Spoiled Slice of Summer Gift which Renee already blogged and the anklet is actually a Cinderella Hunt gift from U&R Dogs.
The hair is the Vixen Slice of Summer Gift and comes in all colors.

This backpack is from Concrete Flowers for the Slice of Summer Hunt and I think it is adorable!
I am wearing it with a top that is from this week’s Sn@tch Riot Vend, and Dollarbie Jeans from AYY, which I just love. 
The Sn@tch Riot Vend is totally worth hitting up, for a long boho style skirt, with 6 colors of cropped sweater and the price gets down to 45L. 

The boots are the Studio M’z Slice of Summer Gift and are amazing!  They are resize also, so would be great for the men also.

This next thing might be my favorite thing from the Slice of Summer Hunt.  It is a Balloon Basket, also from Concrete Flowers.  You can fly in it!   It makes me so happy!  ;p

The sweater is part of the Tyranny Slice of Summer Gift and it is amazing.  The textures are outstanding, and it has a bunneh pin on the collar.  The entire outfit is actually quite funny.  It is called Nerd F*cker, and comes with really cute flats, one of which has a piece of toilet paper stuck to the heel.  It made me laugh really hard.   I am easily amused.

    The designer sent a notice late last night. So many people complained about the MM that she took it away, and placed the Uma skins out for free. I am not sure where in the store they are, but they are there somewhere.

    They are upstairs, same place that the MM was, but she made them a group gift, and the group seems to be closed. 😦

    What? WHAT????!!!!!!! People were COMPLAINING about the MM?? Seriously? They were complaining about a GIFT?! Are people truly that $^*(%@$^ LAME?!!

    And to think that anyone had the cajones to tell Heather Beebe how to market her products, run her group and deal with potential gifts is so preposterous, it’s laughable.

    Love your work, Heather! ❤ Suffice it to say, you handled this MUCH better than I would have. 😐
