A Flower Fell In Love With The Sun

A Flower Fell In Love With The Sun...

I’m feeling perky today and I have some more new, pretty things from The Seasons Story that I wanted to share with you.

The new Brandi skin from Glam Affair that was out for Cutie Moon now has some great variations out at The Season’s Story. There are two different tones available, Europa and Frost, and each comes with several different make up options, including some with a delicate floral pattern painted on. I decided to go with one of the classic versions for this pic though, because I wanted to add the dramatic petal lashes, also by Glam Affair, that you can find at this months round of C88.

Other new things from the Seasons Story are this Elsa hair from D!va and this gorgeous headpiece from Aisling, which just fitted the hair and this look perfectly. And these super shiny eyes from Buzzeri.

I hope everyone has had a good start to their week :)

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.

Let’s pretend it’s full on spring already for this picture, k? K. I love this beautiful headpiece from Glam Affair that’s out at Collaborate, it just called for pink and prettiness to me, which is how I ended up with this pic.

I’m wearing the new Sylvia skin from Glam Affair too and I have to say, it’s my absolute new favourite. It’s out now at Collabor88 in the America tone and there’s a new way of buying it. Instead of just purchasing a skin in whatever make up you want, you purchase the base skin and then there are a whole range of optional packs to buy too. The different options like eyebrows, cheeks, lips, noses and eye shadows are all available separately and come on tattoo layers. This gives you a great variety that you can mix and match from, and can create a much more unique look to suit you. The only downside is that we’re of course limited on tattoo layers, thanks to the lab, so you might have to be choosy. For this picture I’m just wearing some of the optional eyebrows and cheeks, since I always wear a freckles and dimples layer and then needed a hair base too.

Also from C88, this gorgeous Alma hair from D!va. Both of the ponytails over my shoulders are optional extras so you can wear one, both or none! It’s a gorgeous hair for close ups, with all the wisps already attached, so no need to fuss in photoshop!

Another recent item is this vintage style necklace from Maxi Gossamer that you can pick up just in time for Valentines Day at this months round of FaMESHed, along with matching earrings.

I’ll Take The Good Times

I'll Take The Good Times

I’ve been getting so fancy lately, what with all the festive, party season releases, and Collabor88′s Nostalgia theme that started yesterday has only helped to feed that trend. I picked up, 6 or 7 new dresses and a toooon of hair, so you might have to bear with me getting my glam on again for a lil bit.

This dress from House of Fox was one of my favourites, as soon as I saw the ad for it on Flickr, I knew it was gonna be love. I wasn’t wrong. I added a flower, which is actually a hair piece, on my hip where the fabric would rouch, to help co-ordinate my black accessories.

The hair is also a new item from D!va who made up for their absence at last months round by producing 4 different hairstyles and as usual they’re super sweet and wispy. Still one of my favourite hair brands for using in pics.

Other new items from C88, the skin from Glam Affair, also the more modern chain necklace from them as well and finally the clutch from Baiastice.

Oh and yes, I know I’m wearing sunglasses in the snow, thank you for noticing daaaarling!

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!

Just A Whisper On The Wind

Just A Whisper On The Wind

Helloooo! Hope everyone has had a great start to their week, did you spend all your Ls at Shoetopia over the weekend? I know I splurged!

So let me start with my shoes in this outfit. They’re a new pair in a line from Tulip which you can find at Shoetopia and are made to fit the SLink medium feet. I was so excited when Tulip branched out into hair a few months ago and I think I’m even more excited that now they’re creating shoes too. I love that the SLink add ons have given so many other creators a chance to make shoes, the variety out there now is just fantastic. These bootie wedges from Tulip, and the flat roman sandals that she made are two of my fave add ons that you can find at Shoetopia.

I’m wearing another Tulip release that is this halterneck top, there was a version out for Fifty Linden Friday last week, but don’t worry if you didn’t grab it, there’s a whole line of colours available at their main store. The cardigan is from Drift at TDR Fusion and you have a few more days to pick that up before the round changes this coming Friday. It comes in both a plain and striped version which both have 3 different colour textures to choose from via a HUD. The hair is an adorable recent release from D!va that you can pick up at C88.

Remember When The Sun Shone

Remember When The Sun Shone

I don’t want it to be winter! I don’t, I don’t. It can stay autumn until spring as far as I’m concerned! I love making pictures with warm tones so those seasons are perfect, which I’m gonna make the most of it over the next 2 or 3 weeks, since it just feels too early to me to crack out the snowy pictures.

Anyway, I just wanted to show you guys the new Nina skin from Belleza. She’s a beauty! I absolutely love the nose shape on this skin, it’s perfect for me coz you might’ve noticed I tend to put the slider more to the bulbous side of things than the pointed and the shading on this really flatters that shape. The lips and eyebrows are amazing too, plus lots of great make ups to try out.

Also new are these stunning eyes from Dead Apples. They have slightly more realism to them than a lot of her lines and you can pick them up at The Mens Dept, which opened yesterday.

Gonna go now and daydream about sunshine. K. Bye!

Pandemonium

Pandemonium

I know I said I was done with dark pics before Halloween even happened buuuut, this dress and mask just called for it. Plus I don’t think I over did the darkness too much, there’s definitely other colours in there!

I called this post Pandemonium after the location that I took the pic at, which I found while I was checking out The Blogging Elf’s Flickr, since I wanted some kind of outdoorsy fantasy setting. I took a leaf out of her book and decided to be a redhead today too!

Anyway, the dress is a fabulous new release you can find at FaMESHed by Baiastice. It comes in several block colours as well as a couple of prints, it’s a great formal dress and would be perfect for some fantasy RP too.

The branch mask is a new release from Chimeric Fashions at the We Love RP event that just opened yesterday. You can’t really see how awesome the mask is in this pic, I know, but I’ve done a lot of close ups lately and plus I wanted to show the complete dress, so you’ll just have to go check it out! I really love how I managed to find a place with a ton of bare trees in the background that match the mask perfectly.

Hope everyone is enjoying their week!

Give Me Your Loss And Your Sorrow (and Berry’s Halloween Meme)

Give Me Your Loss And Your Sorrow

Happy Monday! We’re almost at Halloween and it shows on the grid with lots of great, dark releases. So I decided to show you one of the new Vera skins from Glam Affair that you can find at Horrorfest. I added the D!va Anna hair that you can still pick up at C88 for a couple more days, as well as this amazing headpiece from Swallow that’s new out at TDR Fusion. I even donned a pair of elf ears (ok technically they’re fairy ears I guess, since that’s the name) and realised that this was the first time I’ve ever worn some in my entire 7 years in SL!

I knew the perfect place I wanted to take this picture too, and went back to Hunter Valley, an RP sim I took a few pictures at last week. It’s currently open to the public although you still need to wear an observer tag. It has this awesome creepy little village area, complete with fog and mist, it’s really great for your Halloween pics! You might think I did a lot of editing to this pic, making it black and white and then saturating the red, but I didn’t. The skin is in GA’s petal tone which is a really pale grey/white shade, so I just used a dark grey windlight with it and voila!

Anyway, since this is kind of a dark picture I decided I’d add Berry’s Halloween Meme as well.

1. Did you go trick or treating as a kid?
Yep I did, although not to random strangers houses. Just a couple of neighbours and then my parents would drive my sister and I round to some family members houses.

2. What was the best Halloween costume you ever saw or wore yourself?
You know, I was really trying to think about when I ever dressed up or went to a Halloween party beyond the age of about 12…and I honestly can’t remember a time at all. So probably the best outfit I ever had was one year as a kid when my mum decided I was gonna be “Mouldilocks” – a Halloween version of Goldilocks. So off I went in lots of black and red, green streaks in my curly blonde hair and complete with a bowl of green porridge.

3. What is your most vivid memory of Halloween?
It was a party my parents had for me and my little sister, I must’ve been about 6 and all the neighbourhood kids were invited. We had indoor fireworks and one little boy completely freaked out because he thought the house would burn down. Then later my aunt and her friends showed up dressed as Zippy, Bungle and George from Rainbow – I was convinced they were the real thing and went to school the next day telling everyone they’d been at my house.

4. What is the scariest movie you’ve ever seen?
I’ve only seen a handful of scary films as an adult because they’re just not really my thing. There were 3 films that traumatized me as a kid though, and this is probably why I don’t like scary movies. ET (the bit where he’s running through the forest screaming, scared the daylights out of me!!), Jaws and Jurassic Park (seriously sat crying in the cinema begging my dad to take me home and we’d watch the rest when it came out on video, he made me stay!)

5. Do you ever get nightmares after watching scary movies?
Yes, but I haven’t seen many like I said.

6. Are you superstitious? If so name at least one superstition of yours.
I don’t really think I am, but I’m a little bit paranoid about the numbers 13 and 666. I won’t even use brushes those sizes, or change anything to 13% in PS lol.

7. What will you be doing for Halloween if anything in SL or RL?
No plans in RL since it’s not really celebrated where I live now. In SL I don’t have anything planned either but I might dress up and do some club hopping.

So that’s me done for this Monday, hope you all enjoy your week!

Nothing Sweet About Me

Nothing Sweet About Me

I really don’t do the cute look very often, because frankly there are a ton of bloggers who do it way better than I can and it’s not something I’m usually comfortable in, but now and then there’s a release that just makes me wanna be cute and this adorable curly hair style from D!va is one of those.

So in a bid to be a bit cuter, I decided that of course I needed some pink. This new turtle neck from Teefy that you can find at Collabor88 was perfect for that and so was this pose with owl prop from Imeka. You can find the prop at The Seasons Story event which just opened.

I ended up cropping this picture a little weird, I normally would’ve cropped it smaller cutting off my legs more but I really wanted to show you guys these skyline tights! I admit I squeed a little when I saw the London skyline version and couldn’t wait to put them on, there’s also a New York and Paris version too. These are from Cannibelle which is just on the marketplace for the moment, along with some fab polka dotted tights as well. Perfect for this season and best of all they’re compatible with the SLink mesh feet!

Anyway, my regular style will resume tomorrow coz I’m really not this sweet at all.
