Heyyyy all, hope you’re doing good. I’m just here with a few new things to show you, mostly from C88 and I’m pretty sure you’re probably tired of seeing them by now, but I started work on this pic 2 days ago and then Paper Couture released their new line yesterday, so I had to retake it and start again!

So the C88 stuff, is the hair from Lamb, the skin is the new Katya in Europa by Glam Affair and the peacock feathers were actually the fans from Volstead, which are at Collab on the Hucci stand. I didn’t intend to edit this pic so much, because I was showing a new skin, but I got carried away and did a lot to the nose and of course I’ve added the teeth and some shading on the lips, so make sure you demo first. I dramatically changed my shape for this picture too, just coz I felt like it!

The necklace is one of the new releases from Paper Couture that I mentioned. There are some absolutely beautiful new jewels out, all mesh, that you must go and see. I loved their pearl collar too but it would’ve been hidden with this hair so that’s for another day. Lots of new gowns and outfits and even new hair and lots of other accessories for you to squeeeee over, definitely worth a trip to their store at Tableau!

Bandana Day – 29th July

As I mentioned earlier, Hair Fair 2012 closes tomorrow, but it’s also Bandana Day!

I’m sure you’re aware that a portion of the money raised at Hair Fair is donated to the Wigs for Kids charity and Bandana Day is always the last day of the fair, where people remove their hair to show they care.

You may have seen the bandana stores dotted around the hair fair, (I think there’s at least 2 on every sim) where you can purchase the bandana’s for a mere 50Ls. There are lots of fun and quirky styles, designed by bloggers as well as designers and all money raised from the sales of these is added to the money that the creators are donating.

So if you haven’t picked up a bandana or two make sure you get over there and sport your own style to show you care, tomorrow on the 29th!

Lazy Friday LOTD & Limited Bazaar

Yep it’s Friday! Yep, I’m feeling lazy!

Today saw the first round of a new event called Limited Bazaar, hosted by Euphoria. Every 2 weeks 15 designers will display limited editions for 150Ls. There will only be 100 of each item available. I have to say I think this is a pretty great idea for a showcase, it’s something different to the others (and there are a lot of others now) and it gives people the chance to purchase something that they don’t have to worry about running in to 20 people wearing at the same time. (Do we worry about that in virtual world? I don’t actually worry about it but I have to admit that I like the idea of owning something not many others do.) Anyway, I think it’s a great idea and I really hope this event takes off.

I have to admit that I didn’t actually hear about Limited Bazaar (I know – slacker!) until I saw it in a stores group notice today, I checked the time and it opened at 12pm SLT…which wasn’t good news for me as I expected to be out for RL at that point and I groaned a bit because I’d seen the Toki Doki releases and knew I had to get my hands on something at least. Luck was on my side today though and I was home earlier than expected, so I hot footed it over to Euphoria and yay! I managed to grab one of these limited edition Toki Doki cardigans. I love this cardi and I do have it in a couple of other colours already, I wear it a lot and I have blogged it before but this one is special so you get to see it again!

I know this is a very lazy post but actually this is kind of how I dress a lot of the time in world. Not with my bra on full display obviously…but just relaxed and casual and not over the top on accessories. Probably because I’m too lazy most days. In fact, I’m not even sure how I manage to blog at all my laziness can be so great.

So anyway, enough rambling. Oh! But this hair…it’s cute. Wasabi Pills at Hair Fair on the Water sim!

Finally…FLF (I had more to write than I thought). Love this chair from The Loft! It won’t go with my current house but unfortunately I’m one of those people who buys things -just in case- and sales and events like Fifty Linden Friday bring out the worst of that in me. Also this cute pose is from dfo! at FLF, so if you haven’t been yet you have a few more hours to go grab them!

Happy Friday everyone!

Audrey Meets Marilyn

Just a quickie right now to show you this picture I snapped during a photo session with my friend Harper for her new blog Pixel Pantomime. Obviously we went for a kind of modern Marilyn Monroe and Audrey Hepburn look which was a lot of fun.

You can read her blog post, see her pics and find the “Marilyn” credits here.

June C88 & Glam Affair

Finally the 8th has arrived! It feels like Christmas every month when C88 opens and I feel like a kid all over again.

This month’s theme was “Shindig” with lots of bright, bold colours, geometric patterns etc. Glam Affair was the guest for this round and I’ve picked a couple of their items to blog. Firstly because I adore this Zoe dress they released and secondly because of their skins.

For a while now I wanted to buy a Glam Affair skin, I know there has been lots of talk about them looking grey or ashen to some people, or the body texture not matching the face and unfortunately (for me) that was how they appeared whenever I tried them on. But I kept seeing wonderful pictures on Flickr and on blogs where the skin looked great and I absolutely adored the faces on the latest releases. I kept getting demos and trying them on and messing with windlight, because I was so irked that they looked ashen to me and yet amazing in these other pictures and I seriously couldn’t believe that was all Photoshop work.

So today I picked up their Mia skin that was released for C88, with 3 different make up types, determined not to be a complete noob and to finally find whichever windlight it was that made the tones and textures look awesome, as I’d seen in other pictures. Well wouldn’t you know I found it! I used the StrawberrySingh.com Orignal windlight, which you can download from her site here and voila! Picture perfect Glam Affair skins! I’ve been doing a little happy dance for the last couple of hours because now I get to enjoy them on myself and not just from afar!

Also loving this funky turban from Yummy at C88, perfect if you’re having a bad hair day. Not that that ever happens to us in SL of course!

So if you haven’t already visited, get yourself over to C88 and peruse the goodness on offer!
