Started Looking And The Bubble Burst

Started Looking And The Bubble Burst

I guess I was feeling super inspired with all this apocalyptic stuff being released and the lure of virtual events to go drop my Ls all around.

So lemme start with this hair from Soonsiki (formerly Milk) that you can get at FaMESHed today. Big, crazy curls, what’s not to love?? The dress is another item from FaMESHed, by Zenith. Zenith have really been stepping up lately and all of their releases are getting better and better. I loved the casual, worn look of this dress so it was pretty easy to decide to pair it with these boots from Deadwool, out at Uber. These are a unisex item and come with both rigged, unrigged and cut versions. So great to resize or wear with pants too. You can pick up this great looking bag from Uber too. I can never get enough of RP ready bags so this is a welcome addition to my inventory!

Not Kind When You Betray Me

Not Kind When You Betray Me

Soooo many exciting and amazing events opened, opening and soon to open, yesterday, today and this week! I really feel like I don’t know how I’m going to keep up, but it’s gonna be fun shopping till I drop anyway.

I’m mixing up a bunch of new things from Uber, which kicked off a new round yesterday with it’s Post Apocolyptic theme, and FaMESHed which opened it’s doors today.

The epic train/tank I’m using is from Kalopsia at Uber, by the super talented Isabeau Baragula. It comes with several different texture options as well 3 variations. There’s the full size, animated piece (which I’m using in this pic), a miniature, mounted interior decor item and another large version that’s buried in sand. Really great options and a very cool decoration for anyone to own, I love Kalopsia for always surprising with it’s unique and creative designs.

More from Uber in this pic, the edgy hair do from Exile, and unique layered shorts from Coco. The skin you can also pick up there which is a special version of Artemis from Glam Affair, tons of make ups available so we can all be post apocalyptic beauties.

Finally at Uber are these shoes from JD which, I just cannot describe my love for. They are made to fit the JD MyFeet, SLink feet and the soon to be released Belleza mesh body, so everyone can love on them. If you see me around the grid any time for at least the next month, these are probably what I’ll be wearing. Really no plans to remove at all.

FaMESHed started it’s September round today and you can find this great necklace from Glam Affair, it’s a really versatile piece that you could dress up all fancy, or dress down like, well, like someone who’s just been through the end of the world. The bra top I’m wearing is also from FaMESHed and is part of Haste’s summer hoodie, obviously it can be worn alone which is great for mixing and matching stuff up!

I hope everyone is enjoying their Monday, I know it’s a holiday for lots of people reading this and hope you’re having a great one! Back to more shopping and photo snapping for me, maybe I’ll try to get into The Arcade even. Maybe.

Autumn Days When The Grass Is Jewelled

Autumn Days When The Grass Is Jewelled

Is it technically autumn yet? I’m not sure. It’s still definitely summer where I love, but it feels like it should be autumn now.

I’m wearing the new Skye skin from Glam Affair that will be out on the 1st September at The Arcade and she’s a real cutie! The commons come in the Asia tone (my new fave) with the rares in Jamaica and Pearl. Arcade is a great way to grab skins for bargain prices, I usually like to get them all for my alts and being transfer is super handy for that of course.

I added the Juno hair from D!va at C88 and the Lagyo Metis necklace you can also grab there for a few more days, coz with this skin I just could not resist the pretty.

Is everyone looking forward to all the events opening in the next week? I know I am, after being away I really can’t wait to go get my shop on!

Down South In New Orleans

Down South In New Orleans

The Fantasy Collective started a new round a few days ago, featuring a New Orleans theme. It’s a great dress up theme and plenty of dark, indulgent items. I’m wearing this hat and hair from Tableau Vivant and lounging around on the set from Kalopsia that you can pick up there. I love the trumpet wall piece and the piano bar is a great unique, decor piece for any room.

I’m also wearing the Oakley shoes from Just Design that were out at Uber for their first round which started on the 31st of July, you have approx 1-2 days to go grab these still if you don’t have them already! I seriously have barely taken them off for the past month and they’ve become a firm favourite for me.

Make sure you visit before it’s too late!

And So You’re Back

And So You're Back

You may or may not have noticed my absence over the past 6 weeks or so. I had an extended vacation to RL, which was great, but I’m super glad to be back and getting in a routine again.

I have a lot of things to catch up on but I sort of decided that I’d just go ahead and show you some coming soon stuff first!

This Emily skin from Belleza is going to be out in a few days for Arcade. There are 3 rares and 12 regular skins available, varying tones and make ups. I can tell you that I did not edit the shape of my lips at all in Photoshop, they just look this amazing in world thanks to Shyla’s handy work.

I’m wearing a new hair from Little Bones which is going to be out on the 30th at Swag Fest. There are going to be 5 new releases from Little Bones at this event but this one is one of my faves. A ton of options are included, different sizes as well as the option to change the colour on each half of your hair. I can’t wait to play around with it!

The fancy septum piercing is from LaGyo at August’s round of C88 and you still have a week or so to go grab it!

I hope everyone’s had a great summer, please excuse me if this is all a bit rusty but I’ll be back in the swing of things soon! Don’t forget to click through to Flickr to see the bigger pic ♥

You Think I’m Pretty, Without Any Makeup On

You Think I'm Pretty, Without Any Makeup On

With so much going on this week, I’ve got yet another LOTD post for you. This time I’m wearing a mix of releases from The Seasons Story, which opened today and a couple more Collaborate pieces.

This adorable dress is from Pixicat at The Seasons Story, out today. I cannot tell you enough how impressed I am with this brand. They’re still relatively new and the collection of items is small – yet growing, but each and every item they’ve put out has been different and unique compared to anything else on the grid. On top of that the quality of mesh and texturing is second to none. If you’re looking for something that’s not “just another dress” then make sure you visit Pixicat to snatch this up, both patterns and solid colours are available.

I’m wearing a new hair style from Little Bones that’s out at The Secret Affair in a few days, and I don’t think it’s possible to describe how loud my inner squeal was when I saw the pearl headband that’s attached to the curly tresses. I tried to convince a friend a while back that we needed a pearl headband in SL, I have a couple in RL which get a lot of use, but we decided it would be better if it came attached to a hair. Nova must’ve read my mind coz that’s exactly what she’s released, even with a long ribbon that trails over your back. There’s not enough curly hair in SL in my opinion, so this is a welcome addition.

I paired both of these with the amazing safari necklace from Ison, out at C88 and the Lara sandals from Pure Poison that you can pick up there too. Pure Poison has released a pretty big line of SLink compatible sandals this season, with the Lara being one of three great new releases she launched at Collab. To finish the look off I added the fringed bag from Zenith, also at C88.

This week is an expensive one for most of us virtual fashionistas, what with 2 big events opening and Hair Fair right around the corner, I hope you saved your pennies! A quick reminder about Hair Fair, you can join the Hair Fair demo group in world, where creators will send all demos, allowing you to try them on in the comfort of a lag free environment at home, before you go to get your shop on. Be sure to join!

Soul Of A Lioness

Soul of a Lioness

So as you probably know by now Collabor88 has opened up it’s July round with a safari theme. So many great items this round and in particular all the jewellery and accessories that are on offer.

Since there was so much I decided to grab a couple of friends and show off some looks all together. So a big thanks to the lovely Kallisto Destiny and Oakley Foxtrot who were roped in to pose with me!

There’s a lot of credits so I’m just gonna head right to them, but make sure you go visit C88 with a whole pocketful of Ls to treat yourself with!
