Sunshine She's Here

Happy Hump Day all! I’ve got quite a few new things that have been released over the past couple of weeks, to show you today. First of all let me start by saying how much I love this combo I’m wearing. I think I’m on my 3rd day of wearing it in world, with slight variations to my hair and shoes. I still don’t see myself taking it off any time soon. So sorry/not sorry to anyone who has to see me in the same outfit for days on end, but I adore it!

So from top to bottom, I’ve got the Harriet hair from Truth that was out last week. I love this style coz it’s not as big as some of his others, the fringe on it too is seriously cute. I’m wearing the bikini top from Surf Co at The Arcade, only a couple more days to try your luck and grab this! It’s not mesh but that makes it great for layering, which I can see myself doing a lot of this spring/summer, since I have a huge thing for high waisted bottoms with cropped tops lately.

The skirt and bag are both out at Collabor88 for March’s round, by Tres Blah and Glam Affair. I’m a huge tote lover in RL and have a habit of collecting them in SL, so this bag was a welcome addition to that. I especially liked that it has a notebook inside, bags with extra touches like that are sorely lacking in SL. It gives an extra touch of realism and I’m hoping more will pop up this season. The skirt is just a perfect staple item, I purchased 4 of them in different patterns, including floral and leather, along with this striped version. I just know I’m gonna wear them to death.

My cute sandals are a recent release from Pure Poison, that you can pick up at their main store. They’re SLink add ons and very reasonably priced, I think I got a fatpack of 4 colours for around 400Ls. Definitely worth grabbing!

Finally my pose is a new release from one of my favourite pose stores, Imeka, who are making an appearance at Kustom9-

I took this picture at the newly reopened Neva Sky Villi, which has been one of my favourite locations for pictures since it opened last year. I’m excited to go back and really explore the new little areas that Neva has put in for spring. If you’ve not visited yet, make sure you do!

Never Meant To Start A War

Never Meant To Start A War

I don’t take personal pictures very often, really, really rarely actually. I usually just point my camera, snap something and edit however I think looks pretty. But today this picture actually does have a bit of a personal meaning behind it and I enjoyed doing it a lot. Maybe I should do more.

Anyway the item I really wanted to show off is this amazing formal dress from Peqe. It’s out at the We <3 RP event at a discounted price in two colours, the gold and black as well as a pale blue and white. There are other colours available at the Peqe main store at full price. I've really loved Peqe's last 2 releases and I'm excited to see more from them.

To Be A Friend

To Be A Friend

Two posts in one day! I always feel a little bit like Super Woman when that happens, feel free to indulge me on that :D

These little Lovelyna dolls from Pure Poison at The Arcade were just too cute for me not to take a snap with, so I prettied myself up in some pink and posed with them! You can also attach them since they’re animated with a hold too.

The hair I’m wearing is a new release at The Arcade from Truth. It comes with removable headphones, but this shade had red ones and frankly, I didn’t wanna clash with the pink I had goin’ on!

The collar is a great new accessory from Glam Affair that you can find in tons of colours at the latest round of FaMESHed.

If you’re recovering from Arcade fever, then don’t forget that We <3 RP opens in a couple of hours (3pm SLT) and you can pick up every item you want, without having to gamble for it! That includes this beautiful, shabby chic style Gypsy camp set from Kalopsia.

There are two different styles available, both come with a caravan which you can't actually go inside but instead is animated with 9 poses, so makes a great decor or pose item. Both also include a table, animated chair and an awning as well as other knick knacks which are different in each set. A complete set is currently marked at 50% off for 250L, which I think is a steal for the amount you get. Or you can buy a pack of both sets for only 400L – even better!

The guitar I'm using in this pic is the one currently available from Balaclava at The Arcade. I loved the busking set and was super happy that I got this on my second go as it was exactly what I wanted. I think these are great picture props and perfect for role play too. I'll definitely take a busking character for a spin now!

Yes I'm wearing the boyfriend socks from Just Design again, I can't get enough of them. But check out my new boots! (close up here on Just Design’s Flickr) These will be available tomorrow (5th March) at The Mens Dept, again by Just Design. They’re unrigged so you can easily resize as needed, also has a removable sock option which I took off so I can wear my beloved boyfriend socks and suspenders.

Copacabana

Ok so it’s not actually Copacabana, it’s the well known and loved Baja Norte in SL, but since we’re in carnival week and I got this amazing Rio hat from the Enfant Terrible gacha ON MY FIRST TRY – I’m gonna pretend that it is!

I also wish that this great new skin from Belleza was called Lola, alas it’s not coz that would’ve been too perfect. However Mimi (real name!) is still a beauty and can be picked up from The Arcade too. I’m wearing the sun kissed rare version for this pic, but there are lots of others available in a whole mix of tones.

I added one of Truth’s new releases from last week too, although I did take a little bit of creative license to add some tendrils over and around my shoulder, since mesh hair doesn’t usually part well when you’re in a pose like this.

Hope you’re all enjoying your weekend and gacha shopping. I feel like I spent a ton yesterday, and I did, but I still want more! #addictedtogacha

Lost To The Wind

Lost To The Wind

I only have a couple of new things to show you in this picture, literally just two. Only my hair and socks are new items but honestly I don’t even care because I’m loving this outfit so hard today.

The hair is a long, flowing release from Tableau Vivant that will be available at The Arcade on Saturday. You may have seen some pictures on blogs and Flickr of it already, it comes with adorable soft plushies that can be worn on your head too, but it didn’t quite fit for this picture so I had to leave that at home :(

My other new thing – the socks with suspenders. These are a mesh item that are going to be released tomorrow from JD at TDR Fusion. I believe they will be able to be worn separately as simple bare sock feet, but are also being made to fit with existing Just Design shoes and boots too, as I’m wearing in the pic.

So much going on over the next few days, I’m really excited and having trouble focusing with so much gorgeous new stuff being previewed, but these 2 items just inspired me to put the rest of the outfit together. Writing my wish list for Arcade today and I can’t waaaaait!

Happy hump day guys! Just here to show you the new Aria skin from Glam Affair, that will be out on the 1st at The Arcade!

Aida has done a beautiful job as usual with this skin, and with her new seperate options there are so many possibilities. You can see the full gacha key here on her Flickr, but basically there are 12 combination skins available as commons, all with different make up options and then the rares are a clean skin base and lots of extras. If you manage to collect the full set including the rares, there are SO many ways to wear this skin. In this picture I’m wearing one of the combination commons, but added some eyebrows, a nose and under eye shadows from the rares. It’s really a lot of fun to play around with and try out different looks.

Also adore the new hairs from Tram, and while they don’t actually sell a purple hair, I just used a light shade (the dark salmon colour) and tinted it in world.

Christmas Puddin’

Christmas Puddin'

Only 2 more sleeps! This is gonna be my last post for a few days, since I’ll be taking off like everyone else to spend time with my family and friends, so I wanted to do something fun.

I love this bow head piece that’s a new group gift from Just Design, you can pick it up for free in both red and green at the main store, it’s juts a perfect festive accessory for pics or dressing up. I was also happy to find this body suit hidden away in my inventory, I knew it would come in handy when I bought it 50 million years ago! (ok, not that long, but truly must’ve been about 18 months!) It was part of a bunny girl set that Hucci released last year, I’m sure you can still find it in their main store.

I’m wearing another one of Truth’s latest releases from last week as well, this cute Dove ponytail. I really like the volume on the top of the hair coz it gives it kind of a vintage feel. And yes, I know I used these MudHoney table and chairs in my last post too, but I like it ok?!

Finally, I want to mention the pose I’m using. It’s from a store called Corpus, by Diconay Boa. I only found them a month or so ago, via Diconay’s Flickr, but I loved the look of them, especially the lounge series, and thought they seemed really natural. So off I went to check out the store. When I got there, I was pretty disappointed to find all her latest poses were priced at 100Ls each. It’s not a great deal of money I know, but I really couldn’t justify spending that much on a single static pose, when there were so many other great stores out there offering them between 25-50L. I did pick up a pack of her older poses though, which had been reduced to something like 200 poses for 300Ls, since I thought that was a great deal and I’ve used a few of them recently. Then last night I decided I wanted a sitting pose for this pic and after fruitlessly searching a few stores for one that I really liked, I remembered Corpus had some nice ones and even though they were pricey maybe I’d buy one, just coz I had had enough of shopping by now. Anyway, in I went and was thrilled to see that the prices were now reduced to 50Ls per pose, so I picked up more than one and I was so happy with the way this pose turned out for this picture. I really recommend anyone who’s into taking pictures checking out this store if you want to find some great, natural poses, I’ll definitely be going back for more.

Before I disappear into festive celebrations, I also just want to say a little thank you my readers and followers for your support and interest in my rambling and pics over the past year, I hope you’ve found it useful and maybe at times my pictures gave you a smile. I still really enjoy blogging and sharing things with you, and I’m looking forward to a lot more in 2014!

Merry Christmas, happy holidays and all that good stuff!

Hello! Just a short post today coz I wanted to show you the new Tara skin from Belleza that you can find at The Arcade, along with the Tami hair from Baiastice also available in a gacha.

One of my favourite things about The Arcade is that it gives you a chance to try out something different than you’d normally wear, like my pink hair. I’m pretty frugal in SL and I tend not to buy things unless I love them or know I’ll wear it more than once, so pink hair is not something I’ll pick up very often. But yanno, for 50Ls, why the heck not!

One Winters Day

One Winters Day

I took a few days off last week, but now I’m back with so much new stuff to show you omgosh!

I’m sure everyone and their mother knows that The Arcade started a new round yesterday, I’m wearing one of the rare Gemma skins and the hair by D!va in this pic. Both of them are very feminine and soft so it was an easy pairing.

I was beyond excited when I went over to FaMESHed yesterday and saw Ikon there, coz it means we can finally get mesh Ikon eyes! I always thought that Ikon eyes had some of the most realistic textures that you could find on the grid and they’ve been my go to brand for a long time. The only issue with regular system eyes is that you have to use a smaller texture on them, which can result in lowering the quality as less pixels etc, and even though this was the case with Ikon’s system eyes, the original quality of them was -that- good, I still thought they were among the best. But with mesh eyes, you can use a texture twice as large so you’re basically getting them in HD with a lot more detail. Anyway, these are the new Ikon Spec eyes that you can find at FaMESHed, they do come with the system layer option as well if you’re not into mesh. I can’t wait to see lots more new sparkly eyes from Ikon in the future.

Finally I’m wearing a beautiful new necklace from Bliensen and Maitai which will be available in a couple of days at the next round of We <3 RP, opens on the 4th Dec!
