Don’t Leave Me Here

Is it the weekend yet?? I got some mid week emo-ness on tap if anyone’s interested? No? Didn’t think so.

Love this mesh sweater from Chemistry! I saw a couple of pictures of it on Flickr and it looked great, a really fresh and different design to most of the mesh currently on offer on the grid. I love baggy styles like this, they make me feel all homely and comfortable so that was an easy purchase for me. And the Sweet n Low jeans from Jane as well, another nice, comfy addition to my ever growing inventory.

Also have to say that lately I just can’t get enough of Maxi Gossamer. If you haven’t checked out this jewellery range yet you really must. Lots of gorgeous mesh designs and the prices are pretty incomparable to anything else around, not that I’m cheap or anything!

Maternity SLipster Style

A month or so ago I had been on the verge of packing away the majority of my non mesh clothing items, but I’m so glad I didn’t because recycling has become my thing since we started playing pregnant. So I’m not showing any new releases here, but rather an outfit that is suitable to wear if you’re carrying a bump around like I am.

I’ve decided that any posts I make while I’ve got the bump will be outfits that can be worn with or without it (unless someone brings out a fantabulous maternity mesh line in the next couple of weeks), because not only can I not wear most mesh items but I can’t even really wear anything that has prim parts around the stomach either, so it’s not easy to look up to date with this shape.

However! My recycling is working and even though it takes me three times as long to put an outfit together (unless I’m wearing those freebie Jane tanks haha) I think today I managed to pull it off. So this is me in an old Tres Blah dress, it does have a prim attachment but this sits nicely just above the bump with a tiny bit of editing. I know from this picture at the top you can’t even notice the bump, so here’s another view just to prove I’ve got a fat belly!

Well that’s me for today, I won’t bore you all with my maternity woes every time I post don’t worry, but since I noticed that pretty much no one else does any maternity related posts I thought it would be a nice change now and then…but believe me, I’m counting the days to the due date because I can’t wait to get my hands on some new mesh!

Essences – Likki – 2 Day Sale!

Essences JUST (like really 20 minutes ago!) released this Likki skin on a 2 day sale for only 80Ls!

Such a pretty face and a steal for only 80Ls, admittedly the body is not the best but that only matters if you’re one of those women who takes her clothes off a lot, right? Ahem. It comes with 2 freckle tattoo layers, 2 blush layers and 2 eyelash layers too.

Seriously, worth buying!

Oh aaand don’t forget the new group gift from Truth, this cute Jessie hair – it’s mesh!

And yes that is my Jane freebie tank still!

Baby Bump and Mesh!

Since I posted last week with the baby bump and being unable to wear mesh, I kind of made it my mission to find some that I could wear. I know there are a few maternity mesh outfits on the marketplace but I wanted something that I could wear when I’m without the belly too.

So I was making an attempt to organise my inventory the other day and….woah, what’s this! It’s the ISON Draped Crop Tee that I picked up at Culture Shock and completely forgot all about! (that’s not uncommon for me, sadly). So I threw it on all excited and yay, it fit! The tee hangs perfectly over my bump and this is definitely something that I’d wear normally anyway.

Obviously I have to wear a tank under it because when you stretch your stomach on the avie mesh like that…the stomach muscles that were so nicely shaded by the skin creators? Yea, doesn’t look so good when you’re hefting a size 46 belly around. So again, Jane’s freebie tanks came to the rescue, although I’ve told myself I really, really must find something else to wear instead of them, because seriously, it’s been every day for about 2 weeks.

I haven’t mentioned this hair before either, even though it was released last week I think, but it’s one of Elikatira’s latest and I love it. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, Elikatira is possibly my favourite mesh hair right now. I love the colour tones she provides, the rigging on the mesh is great and of course the styles are always fresh and yummy. Oh! And I love the Essentials pack she does! Two of each colour, blondes, browns, reds one black and one white. I used to always buy brunette hairs because continuity was important in the role play I did, but now that I’m no longer active there I can switch it up and while I tend to still go for brunette shades the majority of the time, the Essentials pack gives me a chance to pick and choose what colour I want to have that day for a fraction of the cost of a full colour set. The mixed Essentials pack is only 280Ls whereas individual colour packs are 250Ls. That was a smart move because now I’m gonna spend that little bit extra every time, instead of just getting my regular brown and sticking with it. Win win for everyone!

So this post turned out longer than I expected, especially for a Monday. Enjoy your week!

Short post today because it’s Saturday and as you can see I’m being lazy at the beach. Ahem.

Home & Garden Expo – Inspiration Book

So in a recent post I mentioned that I had gone along to the Home & Garden Expo that is being held this week and was completely overwhelmed by the variety of amazing products. I have a tendancy to get distracted easily and buy things randomly without thinking about what will go together and then they end up lost in the depths of my inventory never to be seen again. Please tell me I’m not the only one!

Anyway, I braved it and went back again and this time I dragged the man along with me, he was enthusiastic at first because at least it wasn’t clothes shopping…until he realised the size of it and he gave a two word response, the first one began with F and the second word was “that!”  but somehow I persuaded him. One of the first spots we visited was Windowshopping by Neva Crystall. I had seen this on my previous visit and loved it. Windowshopping is Neva’s collaboration with a new project called Inspiration Book which is founded by Pitsch Parx and already has several talented, creators, builders and bloggers on their team.

Obviously I subscribed to Inspiration Book immediately because this is perfect for someone like me who has eclectic tastes and can be easily distrac……….ohhhh…….pretty shiny…..er, haha, I know you know what I mean! But it seems as though this is the kind of thing that would give me inspiration and help me focus on creating a certain style, which I’m pretty sure is exactly what it’s meant to do.

Well it clearly works because after seeing the Windowshopping stall the man decided we needed a new house and we grabbed the notecard of Neva’s shopping list that was available and much shopping ensued, the majority of which was at Bazar. Later on I went to bed with an empty lot and woke up to this. I cannot take a single drop of credit for anything in these pictures, it all comes down to the inspiration from Neva’s stall, the brilliant creators and the man’s, previously hidden, decorating skills! I was pretty amazed when I logged on to see it all and I have to give him a <3 for that.

I am going to list everything in the pictures in a minute (and try not to miss anything) , but I just want to mention the house first. It’s the Torino by Maven Homes which has been modified somewhat. A couple of walls were removed from inside, a step placed where the kitchen is, the texture on the walls in the living area were changed as well as the floors throughout the entire house. This is the great thing about modifiable prefabs, you can customise them to your liking. Admittedly I suck at it but the man is good, which is lucky for me and the bump, because we have plans to extend it once the little one arrives.

Also briefly, I believe that the items seen here from Bazar are not all available seperately but rather come in sets. Everything you see here from Bazar is available in these sets, Memories Kitchen, Memories Dining Room and Roya Living Room. The sets include all the decor and details, for great prices.

If you haven’t seen Windowshopping or grabbed Neva’s shopping list at the Home & Garden Expo yet I definitely recommend it, and while you’re there don’t forget to hit that subscribo for Inspiration Book!

I Forgot

…my pants. On purpose though because I couldn’t think of a better way to show off these shoes and shirt.

I was very excited when I saw that YS&S was offering these Brera shoes in an exclusive colour for TDR because I’ve been umming and ahhing over buying them for a couple of weeks and I already had them in mind to wear with this shirt from Leverocci. So when I got the notice I practically jumped for joy and ran to buy them.

So here’s a simple little picture of me, without my pants, but some fab shoes.
