Lately I've been, I've been losing sleep

I love this Tori dress from Baiastice, the silky texture and the lace, is it a dress, is it lingerie? Well I decided to dress it down by throwing on an over sized cardigan and boots.

The cardigan you can find from Eaters Coma at The Season’s Story, there are 4 colours available and each come with a cropped, turtle neck sweater beneath, that is colour changeable via a HUD. It’s a pretty good deal! I bought 2 colours and honestly, I might go back for the other 2 coz over sized cardi’s are one of my most favourite things and I know I’ll wear them to death. Not only that but it’s another of those cool, hands in pockets dealios. Great for pics!

I’m wearing the Punisher boots from Candydoll, which you can also find at The Season’s Story, in 3 exclusive colours/textures. I added the Lucy socks from JD too, these actually came from the Lucy shoes but you can wear them with almost every type of boot too, since they have an alpha selector on the HUD.

Finally from The Season’s Story is this messy hair style from Moon. It’s my new favourite. Not taking it off.

If I Lose Myself Tonight

If I lose myself tonight

Just a quickie post today but I wanted to show you this new Mae skin from Belleza that’s out at the Vintage and Cool Fair. This is currently my new favourite skin from them and I’m sure I’ll take some more pictures using it. Usually I’m into thicker eyebrows but I love the vintage feel from these thin ones, they really suit the structure of the skin. The lips and nose are absolutely perfect and the choice of make ups it comes with are all ones I’d wear regularly. Definitely worth a demo!

Also recent is this statement necklace from LaGyo, which you can find at this month’s round of C88, along with lots of matching items! Finally this amazing colour tattoo from Elska is another new release, that you can pick up at the Body Mod Expo.

Quick LOTD for you this evening! Uber is open for just a few short more hours which is where you’ll find this amazing over sized coat from Ryvolter. It comes in some different coloured check versions, as well as the hounds tooth that I’m wearing, which is a trending pattern for this season.

I’m wearing a new hair from Tableau Vivant that you can find at Creation JP and I have to say that I am loving the beehive styles lately so this ponytail version is a welcome addition to my horde.

These shoes from Just Design aren’t new, but I thought it would be worth pointing out that they have now been adapted so they will fit 4 different types of feet. That’s the JD MyFeet, SLink, The Mesh Project and the Belleza mesh body! All of Just Design’s shoes will be made for these feet going forward, so make sure you keep an eye out for new releases.

That’s all from me today!

Even The Summer Ends

Even Summer Has To End

Hope everyone is having a great start to their week, I have to say that I most definitely am after getting a preview of the Belleza mesh body! I’m pictured here with Kalli, both wearing the new Venus body, which will be available soon at Belleza.

We’ve been getting teasers of this body since May, and I feel like I’ve waited a life time for it. I’ve never owned mesh body parts besides hands and feet before. I never had a phat azz, or a pair of lola’s coz I never felt they were natural enough shapes. When the Wowmeh body was released, I read a couple of blog reviews and while they were generally good, there were still a lot of flaws and I never really felt like that would be the answer to the mesh body situation. There was The Shops mesh project, freebie body, but again I never felt like that was going to be what I wanted – besides the fact that I don’t like to shop there anyway. The SLink physique of course was the next big step for mesh bodies, however after I watched a friend demo it, I was left disappointed. I felt like it just had too boyish a figure for my taste. So I sat and waited patiently for Belleza.

Well I don’t feel disappointed let me tell ya. This body is everything I wanted it to be and more. It has curves and is still customiseable with a simple edit appearance, thanks to the fitted mesh system.
One of it’s best features is the fact that you can change your hand gestures and foot height with the simple click of the HUD. It is SLink compatible so if you’re attached to those hands and feet you can wear them, but of course if you wear the Belleza version, you’ll be absolutely seamless.

I know I said last week that I don’t take many NSFW pictures but I legit cannot stop staring at my boobs. Ask any of my friends in SL and they’ll tell you that if we’re standing around styling outfits, my avatar is the only one always wearing bra and panties. WELL NOT ANY MORE! I love boobs, I do. I really love them, and these are just amazing. I have a feeling that I’ll be looking for any reason to show them off for the next few weeks!

As yet there is no exact release date for the Belleza Venus body, there have been rumours that it could be this coming Wednesday but this has not been officially confirmed. I know that the Belleza team are working hard to make sure that the item is as close to perfect as can be, before it’s release, so please be patient! It’ll be worth the wait.

PS. I’ll add a link to Kalli’s picture and credits as soon as she’s done!

Stuck On The Wrong Side Of Heaven

Stuck On The Wrong Side Of Heaven

I really don’t do a lot of topless or nude pics but today I had to make an exception for this new under bust corset from Just Design. It’s out now at We <3 RP, comes with a detachable bag and several texture change options on the HUD for all the different panels (as well as mix and match colour change if you buy the fatpack). I've been holding out to blog it a few days coz it's also made to fit the soon to be released, Belleza mesh body and I wanted to try and use it with that, but alas it wasn't to be this time since the body release was delayed. On top of all this though the corset is marked down to 295L for the duration of the event (normal price 395L)! It's great for RP'ers and mainstreamers alike, with this soft cotton/denim looking texture.

I'm, not wearing a whole lot else I know lol, but you can also pick up this armour necklace from Ane at We <3 RP too. The skin and hair are new releases from Glam Affair and Tableau Vivant at C88. I'm equally in love with both. The Artemis skin I haven't taken off in a month now, so it was great to see some new make ups for that, and I love, love the Europa tone. This hair is just my number 1 right now, especially in Teal, I've been rocking it around the grid for a few days. Finally the earrings are a new release from Yummy at C88 too, I love big, fun pieces like this so I'll get a lot of use from these.

That’s all from me today, gonna actually head back to C88 and do some more shopping I think!

I love it when the 8th falls on a Monday, it gives me a reason to actually look forward to the start of the week since that is of course when C88 opens it’s doors.

This month’s theme, Miami Electric, is a bright, bold one, with lots of 90s throwbacks. Including this high ponytail, complete with texture change scrunchie, from Lelutka. Lamb also released a similar style and I admit that I got a fair bit more excited than a woman my age probably should, over a scrunchie.

One of my favourite items though, was this cage top from Baiastice. I do tend to get dressed up a lot in world so I already know that I’m gonna be pairing this with shorts, skirts and pants till my heart’s content. It does show a lot of skin so if you end up feeling a bit naked (like I did) then something like Ison’s bolero is a great addition.

I decided to wear these runner shorts from Emery, which were released last week at FaMESHed, since they are another of my favourite releases over the past few days. Classic and sexy, with bold prints and bright trims, they go perfectly with items out at C88.

I wanted to keep accessories simple, since the top is the eye catcher on my torso, so I didn’t add any jewellery but I am using this great clutch bag that LaGyo released, as well as a pink bubblegum add on. Both are out today at C88.

Hope everyone has a good start to their week and happy shopping!

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!
