Just Peachy

I got a mix of some old and new stuff today!

First this new hair from D!va. It’s a kind of hybrid hair with the bottom section made of mesh while the main part is just like regular hair. I have to admit that the few hairs that have been released that are a mix like that are ones that I like. Because you can get the nice wispy textures to frame your face without having giant alphas around them, which is a pain for taking photos. This hair is super cute and definitely worth demoing!

I’m also wearing the new cardigan that was released by Belgravia a couple of days ago. I loooove cardigans – seriously can’t get enough of them and being able to layer things -even though it’s a nuisance and often impossible to layer mesh on mesh. There are still lots of pretty texture layer items to go with mesh outerwear though, like this top from Tres Blah.

The necklace is from Glow Studio and I think has a couple of days left on offer at TDR, so make sure you snatch it up! I buy a lot of my accessories from events like TDR or C88, even if I don’t have anything in mind for it at the time they’re always a good buy “just in case”.

So that’s my hump day LOTD for you! Hope you like :)

Just a Girl

Happy hump day everyone! Today is a good day, I’m not quite sure why but it just feels like one. Maybe it’s something to do with the 11 hours of sleep I had last night, who knows.

I have a couple of new things to show you here as well as a teaser. First of all, I loved this hair from Burley when it was released recently but I know I’m not the only person who was worried that the high parting made my forehead look too big. So when my friend Francisc Guardian showed me these new hats that he’ll be releasing soon, I had an instant bingo! moment. The hat is non rigged mesh so you can adjust it easily to fit over hair and while I sometimes struggle to get that fit right (especially over mesh hair as well) this style just worked perfectly with it.

Ricielli released these mini trench coats last week and this green version is available at The Dressing Room for only 70Ls. It’s a complete and utter bargain and perfect for the cooler seasons now upon us! Also new is this gorgeous necklace from League. I always get excited when I see a release from League and this was no exception. It’s non rigged mesh so easily adjusted and comes with matching earrings. It’s available in several different metal tones and comes with black and brown strap options.

Just quickly wanted to mention my skin, because I’m wearing the new Glam Affair Ginny again that was released at Collabor88 on Monday. I said in my last post how much I loved this skin and it’s a serious contender to become my new every day skin, however I do prefer natural looks and the bright red lipstick that it comes with just didn’t do that for me. Instead I added the Belleza Shyla/Betty lipstick on top. This comes in a pack with 9 different colours and I’m using number 7 which is pretty natural looking. There is a slight discolouration where it’s lighter at the corners of the mouth, (this happens even if you’re wearing the lipstick with Shyla too, so it’s not just because it’s mismatched to this skin) but  it really is so minimal that it doesn’t bother me and I didn’t even need to make an effort to cover it with editing in Photoshop because I couldn’t even notice it while I was editing. So anyway, that’s my cheeky way of being able to wear this skin a lot more often while I cross my fingers and hope for some more versions of it to be released!

Lastly, the location I used for this shot was The Looking Glass. I will happily hold my hands up and admit that I suck at finding locations and usually I find them through pictures on Flickr or other blogs and this one stood out to me when I saw it over at Amy Beebe’s blog, Pixel Vanity in one of her recent posts. The sim is absolutely gorgeous and has lots of different nooks and crannys that you can explore, it’s one of those sims that I’ll revisit a lot and take pictures in different areas because there’s just so much there.

Anyway, that’s me for this Wednesday!

New @ Toki Doki

While they’re celebrating their second birthday Toki Doki released this super cute Carol dress. It’s mesh and available in several bright summery colours all with the retro floral print detail and a similar back to their recently released Mari top.

The birthday sales are still going on, with Maya reducing several of her items every day by 75%. I picked up this cute bag in the sale today and the mesh boots were on sale yesterday, although when I was there a few hours ago they were still on sale so you might get lucky if you didn’t get them already!

The group gifts that have been put out every day have also been fabulous but just a reminder that these are for current group members only. Every day I’ve gone to the store I see people trying to join, but Maya made the decision to close the group for a few days while these gifts are out, as a way of rewarding her existing group members. So if you’re not in the group make sure you join it as soon as it’s reopened so that you don’t miss out on any future sales! Everyone else can still take advantage of the great discounts she has on offer though, so make sure you get over there every day and see what bargains you can snap up!

The hair that I’m wearing is a mesh release from Wasabi Pills at Hair Fair, don’t forget this closes today so make sure you’ve visited and grabbed everything you want, and also pick up those bandanas and help contribute to Wigs for Kids!

Also I’m in love with this BonBon headband from LaGyo which is currently available at the latest round of The Dressing Room. A few weeks ago LaGyo released a BonBon ring at The Dressing Room too and I have to admit to being guilty of wearing it almost every day since, so this matching headband (with colour change stones)  might not be removed for a while!

I’m glad I wore this outfit today, I was feeling a bit blue with the weekend almost being over but the colours cheered me up and then I remembered that a new round of FaMESHed starts in a couple of days, as well as Vintage Fair! So really lots to look forward to this week.

Hope you’re all enjoying your weekend,

FLF 27/07

Just a quickie because I wanted to show you some of the items on this weeks Fifty Linden Friday! There was sooo much good stuff this week, including goodies from Lisp and What Next but I’m just showing some of the clothes. There’s a few more hours for you to go grab them!

First this cute dress from Tulip. It’s mesh, it’s simple and also comes in a peachy shade. I <3 it.

The hair flower is from LaGyo – can’t get enough of this shop lately. Lots of good stuff coming from them for events and showcases like FLF and TDR. Make sure you check them out!

Finally this necklace…it wasn’t actually in FLF, but Miel didn’t have their item out when I went (or when I went back later…this annoys me.) so I hit their subscribo and got this necklace with matching earrings as a group gift!

I love this mesh hair too, you can find it from Clawtooth at Hair Fair which CLOSES TOMORROW! :(

So make sure you snatch up these great items while you still can!

Epoque @ Hair Fair

Looky looky, it’s another hair fair release! This time it’s from Epoque which is located on the Water sim, here’s the direct SLURL. I love this classic style and the bangs are a great length, I tend not to be a massive fan of ones that cover my eyes and usually end up modding the hair if it does, but this one’s perfect.

This outfit is also great for anyone who is feeling thrifty after spending all those Ls at Hair Fair.

The skirt and top are from House of Fox which I got last week for 50L Friday. The top is mesh and the skirt has system layer pants with a mesh insert, so it fits nicely. The skin is by Glam Affair, part of their Roza line which they have been selling a few versions of lately at TDR and C88. This one is available at the new round of TDR and is only 70Ls! Also the earrings and ring are from Kunglers at TDR Blue for only 70Ls and there is a necklace to match at the Kunglers main store. TDR Blue changes rounds in few days so make sure you get over there if you want to snag this set for cheap!

I’m not sure if you can see my nails very well in this picture but they are mesh and from Leverocci. I don’t usually wear prim or any kind of nails, but recently I had started looking at some that I might try out. Then I saw these at Leverocci’s anniversary sale for 30Ls and I couldn’t pass them up. The length is nice and natural and they come in a huge array of colours, either plain polish or a french manicure style. I bought several styles and now I don’t take them off, so they’re definitely worth trying out if like me you were unsure of prim/mesh nails.

Used

I think there is a possibility that I have some issues.

Every time I get a lingerie set that I want to take a picture of and blog, I end up with a completely emo setting, usually something with head in hands, surrounded by suitcases or as above, cardboard boxes. Then just to add to the uh, mood, I make it black and white so you can’t even see the underwear very well anyway!

Oh well, I gotta admit I do like it when I make these pictures. The lingerie is pretty, trust me. It’s by Fishy Strawberry and is at TDR now, don’t miss it!

Mini Catch Up

I’m finally back and when I logged on today I made an effort to catch up on releases I’d missed during my break to real life and well…I just got distracted by this Lily dress from Baiastice that is available at the Fairy Tales event.

So in my mini catch up I got round to Lelutka for the Belle hair, TDR and TDR Blue for fab the ring and handbag I’m wearing.

I put it all together and was quite happpy but something wasn’t exactly right. If you read my previous blog you’ll know that I’m a lover of League skins and in all honestly I haven’t worn any others for over a year now, apart from an odd day here or there, my permanent skin was always from League, but when I put this outfit together I just needed a little something else.

Maybe it’s because I have grown so used to my regular skins wearing casual clothes day in day out, that when I try to glam up a bit I always think I still look very casual and natural, despite any make up layers I add, or updo’s and fancy gowns. So I had another bit of a reccie around my favourite blogs and Flickr and then I found it…this great Lily skin that Belleza released while I was away. It must have a been a sign that it had the same name as the new dress I just fell in love with! As I said before, I didn’t change skins for over a year, I’m always kind of fussy and picky about skins but I tried this demo and knew I had to have it. It has some great lipstick options available in a seperate bundle which are a must have, I just wish the eye make ups came in bundles too, but I guess I can’t have it all!

It’s nice to be back and I can’t wait to get stuck in to some more dressing up and catching up on the latest releases from my favourite virtual world.
