I’m Falling To Pieces

I'm Falling To Pieces

Just a simple, quick, pretty pic today coz this Gloster hair that was released from Tableau Vivant a few days ago is just too perfect for me not to show off. Plus I was dying to use these cool petal things from Zibska since I bought them in a gacha forever ago!

Hope you all enjoy your weekend.

Since it’s Valentines Day tomorrow I thought I’d step outside my comfort zone a bit and do something different, which was easy with this new lingerie set that Baiastice just released. There were 4 new sets in total, this was music to my ears coz in my opinion, there is just not enough mesh lingerie out there right on the grid right now. I’d love to see more, so I’m really glad that Baiastice has decided to expand her range.

If you’re planning something for your special someone in SL tomorrow -winkwinknudgenudge- then you definitely should stop by and try these out!

Hiiii all! I know my posts have been few and far between of late, but I’m hoping that this is the week I’m gonna make a come back.

There’s a simple reason I haven’t been around as much and the short version is that about 3 weeks ago I stopped smoking in RL. I know that it’s a good thing in the long run, but for now everything that was routine and normal for me…isn’t. I won’t bore you with a whole lot of detail but yea. It’s hard for me to do things that I would’ve smoked during or after, so my PC time has been a lot less than usual.

Anyway! On to stuff you’re actually here to read! First of all I wanna talk about my new shoes! These are the new Cult Stilettos from Just Design, that are add ons to their tip toe feet. Note that is to the JD MyFeet, they will NOT work with SLink feet. I like that JD have given another option for creators to make shoes around, as well as for people who didn’t necessarily like the shape of the SLink feet, which can sometimes appear very wide. Also with JD selling add ons at TDR Fusion for 70Ls a pair, you can’t really go wrong! The nude version that I’m wearing here can be picked up at TDR Fusion for a couple more days, but there is also a release in the main store of 15 other colours, which are priced at 295Ls each. Also they come with this awesome half sock add on, which can be worn with the shoe or alone. Plus you get the usual sock versions with the MyFeet too! So many options for such a great price. Oh and if you’re worried about tinting the feet, then you don’t need to! Just Design have produced not just a line of presets, but special textures to match the most popular skin brands too. Other than the SLink appliers which are made by the skin creators themselves, you can’t get a more flawless match in presets, than the one JD offers.

Also new are these cool steam punk style wings by Atomic Faery for The Fantasy Collective, which opened last week. They have a stained glass effect which I noticed changed colour depending on the windlight setting/angle I used, which was very cool!

I love this Penelope bed by MudHoney that came out a couple of weeks ago at The Garden event. Black, white and purple are one of my favourite bedroom colour schemes so this Glam version is right up my alley, but there are a ton of other colour options available as well as a kids version! There’s another week or so on this event, don’t forget to check it out if you haven’t already.

So that’s me for today, hopefully I’ll be back around more often!

A Little Bit Of Fantasy

A Little Bit Of Fantasy

The Fantasy Collective opens it’s doors today, and brings you lots of great designers with their new woodland themed releases. I’m wearing this beautiful leaf jewellery set from Zibska that will add a delicate and elegant touch to any outfit or costume. It includes a necklace, forearm and upper arm piece, as well as a matching circlet that I couldn’t wear coz, well, big hair.

Of course I’m wearing the Glam Affair Ballerina Vanity feet that you can find at Shoetopia, as soon as I saw them I knew I wouldn’t be able to resist finding a big music box and hopping on top like a dancer.

Anyway, I hope you liked the little bit of fantasy I brought today, and have fun finding some yourself at The Fantasy Collective.

I don’t do NSFW posts very often, but there’s something about these chain style necklaces that Zibska creates that just makes me wanna ditch half my clothes! This new one is a unisex item that you can find at The Mens Dept, it’s great for creating a sexy look that’s still classy too.

The hat I’m wearing is also a new item at The Mens Dept by Remarkable Oblivion. I’ve seen a ton of pics already with it on Flickr so I’m sure it’s nothing new to you, but it’s another really well made and original piece of mesh from them and it’s pretty damn cool too.

The couch and chandeliers fitted the mood perfectly for this picture, they’re both new items from MudHoney who are a guest at this months round of Collaborate. The couch however, is not your usual couch. It comes with 3 different pieces, chair, corner and ottoman, so you can mix and match them to whichever configuration you like. I used 2 chair pieces and an ottoman one for this pic, to create a chaise style couch.

Finally the feet I’m wearing are a preview of JD’s MyFeet which are going to be released in a couple of days at Shoetopia! This is going to be a great, popular event and I know I’m not the only person who is busting with excitement for it. Friday can’t come soon enough!

After All That

After All That

So while we wait for C88 to open in a couple of days with it’s anniversary round, I thought I’d show you some new items from The Mens Dept which opened yesterday!

First of all I’m wearing the new jeans from Deadwool, which are actually made for men but sometimes I like the baggy, casual boyfriend jeans look they give on women. Ladies if you’re gonna try wearing mens clothes make sure you demo them first since the sizes are very different and they tend not to fit that great around the hip area because they’re shaped differently. They work well with long tops to cover that but if you want to wear something cropped or topless like I did here then you might struggle to get them to fit without any skin showing through, but if it’s just for a pic then you can be strategic with your pose and angle and a little bit of PS work helps. Don’t forget though that several of the brands at The Mens Dept also offer female versions of their clothes, not just unisex shapes, but ones made specifically for women, so whatever you do just make sure you demo first!

There’s also some great new furniture items out, like the big tool box from Second Spaces and the lab chair from the new store Seven Emporium. Almost everything else in the picture you can find at Seven Emporium’s main location, like the matching lab stool and table. I love the uniqueness of everything that Seven Emporium are offering and am excited to see more from them in the future, make sure you check them out!

Not Gonna Write You A Love Song

Not Gonna Write You A Love Song

I wanted to try out this technique that Miss Berry made a tutorial for a couple of weeks ago, and today seemed like a good day, so I roped in Mister who blogs at Arya’s Heart and turned him to dust! Muahahaha

I’m doing another kind of gothic look I guess, with this new Salome dress from Bilo. It’s available in a few dark colours, obviously I just went for classic black. It’s a mesh/layer hybrid with the top being a texture layer, glitch layer pants and a mesh attachment that flows around the legs. It’s a classic formal dress with a sexy cutout front so you can show a bit of cleavage!

I’m not gonna list all of Misters credits coz to be honest, I dunno them! But I do know he is wearing the mesh suit from Kauna that was out for May’s round at FaMESHed.

Short and sweet today, ciao!

French Kissing (and the Why Do I Blog Meme)

French Kissing (and the Why Do I Blog Meme)

Harper from Pixel Pantomime and I got together for this post and had a bit of an 80s thang goin’ on (hence the post title, love me some Blondie!)

Firstly I wanna talk about these new shoes from Baiastice. They are absolutely everything I want in a pair of shoes, cute, quirky and versatile. There’s an array of colours to choose from, as well as either a patent or snake pattern and the socks, o.m.g the socks. I have a little bit of an obsession for shoes with socks lately and I just don’t think there’s enough of them on the grid. They come with a HUD to change sock colour that has a few different patterns including plain, dotty and zebra.

I’m also wearing the new skirt and top from Emery that’s available at My Attic! Each of these are only 95Ls so you can easily treat yourself to a couple of colours! They’re both fantastic quality as Emery always is and for the price they’re easily my best buy this week. The necklace and earrings I’m wearing are a set by Maxi Gossamer at Collabor88 and are colour change like many of her pieces.

My glasses are by Adjunct at this months Mens Dept and the cuff I’m wearing is new from Inside Lab at SL Fashion Week! Both great accessories that I can easily wear with multiple outfits to create different looks. If you want to see Harper’s version of this pic (I wouldn’t bother, she basically cut me out of the entire picture, think she couldn’t handle the competition!) and her credits (coz it’s alllll about her!) then you can click here.

I decided to do Berry’s latest meme today as well, so bear with me while I ramble on a bit more!

1. How long have you been blogging? Since February 2012.

2. Why did you start blogging? As I started to spend less time in RP sims and discover the rest of SL, I began to play around with creating different looks and taking pictures. After a couple of months I decided I might as well share them on a blog instead of just looking at the pictures myself.

3. How many times a week do you post an entry? Varies, I try to do 3-4 but sometimes I might only do 2.

4. How many different blogs do you read on a regular basis? Hmm maybe 30? Pretty much all SL related. I used to read RL ones a long time ago but now my net browsing time is mostly taken up by looking at Flickr, SL Blogs or Tickld.

5. Do you comment on other people’s blogs? I am sooo guilty of not doing this enough and I really should do it more. Maybe this will light a fire under my ass now.

6. Do you keep track of how many visitors you’ve had? Yep I do!

7. Did you ever regret a post you wrote? I don’t think so, but I definitely look back at some of my earlier ones and think about how I could’ve improved the pics etc.

8. Do you think your readers have a true sense of who you are based on your blog? Hmm, not really. They definitely see a real side of me that loves shopping and dressing up and sometimes I try to put a bit of my humour into things, but I like to think there’s a lot more to me than omg I love this skirt/shoes/hair!

9. Do you blog under your real name? Nope, all SL for me.

10. Are there topics you would never blog about? Yes, RL things and things like religion or politics, because that’s entirely not the point of this blog.

11. What is the theme/topic of your blog? SL Fashion and shopping.

12. Do you have more than one blog? Nope just this one. I did have a Live Journal yeaaaaars ago, when I was about 17, and it was your typical teenage stuff “ohhh I like this boy, but then this boy kissed me and now idk what to do!”

13. What have you found to be the benefits of blogging? Meeting new people and making friends through Flickr and Plurk in the same community (still finding my feet with Plurk if I’m honest, always too self concious!) improving my PS skills and just generally having a hobby I love that I can spend my time on.

14. So why do you continue to blog? Coz I like it! When it stops being fun then I’ll stop doing it.

Letting It Go

Letting It Go

Hiiii people, just a quickie post today before I vanish for the weekend, but I wanted to show you a couple of new things.

First this top from Tulip which you can grab today for Fifty Linden Friday, it’s so soft and floaty and perfect for the light spring season. I’m also wearing another new release from Drift which are these capris. I really like that Drift makes regular releases rather than waiting a month or 2 before releasing a small collection. Don’t get me wrong I like that too but yanno, I’m impatient and I like to have stuff right this minute. Also before you think I PS’d the heck out of the pants, I didn’t. They are already heavily shaded, which is great for taking pics because it saves a lot of edit time. Just like Kalli’s recent releases they come with a colour change HUD, so lots of options for a bargain price.

I got this belt a few days ago at Le Poppycock’s 50L spring sale, they have a few belts there that come with 4 different coloured straps for each buckle. Make sure you check out their sale as they have lots of cute little bits and pieces which are great for adding to outfits.

I gotta say too, this hat with the hair is obviously a release from Maitreya last year but I love it so much, I really hope we start to see more similar items from other hair creators as the warmer seasons kick in, there just aren’t enough of these on the grid imo!

That’s me anyway, have a nice weekend :)

I’ve been wearing this new dress from Emery at My Attic for 3 days straight now. I should probably get changed but I am so in love with it. It’s only 95Ls and comes in a variety of colours, so for that price you can easily get an assortment! I’ve been wearing a lot of black lately though so for this picture I just stuck with that.

Also adore this new Nydia hair that Truth released yesterday. I love the contrast of a really light blonde or white with all the black I’m wearing so that’s what I did!

Finally, a couple of posts ago I wrote about old group gifts that you might have and hadn’t taken advantage of yet and it reminded me of this Petal edition of Glam Affair’s Amberly that I hadn’t worn, so I added that too!

Hope everyone has enjoyed their weekend,

EDITED TO ADD: I received an IM today to ask whether the butterflies were included on the hair, but nooo that was photoshop work! Sorry for any confusion :)
