I’m sure most people reading this are pretty aware that October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, this year in particular it feels like everyone is jumping on the pink bandwagon and while some of it hasn’t been so positive, raising awareness is never a bad thing.

Up until a couple weeks ago, breast cancer seemed like one of those terrible things that happens to other people, but not to anyone I knew and loved. Every time I’d hear about someone who knew someone who had it, I’d think how lucky my family was that we were all healthy and that nothing like that would happen to us. Right? Wrong. Two weeks ago, I received a phone call from my mother, telling me she had some bad news. She has breast cancer. At that moment, breast cancer became a very real, terrible thing – and it wasn’t just happening to a friend of a friends cousin, it was and is happening to my mum. We don’t know for sure how serious it is yet, but my mum is a nurse and pretty fastidious about checking these things, so we’re just hoping that it’s been caught early. In stage 1 there is pretty much a 100% survival rate, stage 2 – 93%. Those are good odds. If you catch it early.

I don’t really want to make this a huge post about cancer, there’s plenty of information online. I’ve pretty much convinced myself that my mum is going to be fine, since there’s nothing else I can think until we find out more next week.

I just wanted to say, ladies, check yo’ self and do it often.

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!

It Felt Good On My Lips

It Felt Good On My Lips

I’ve been away in RL for a few weeks, and today is the first real chance I’ve had to log in to SL and spend some time there – how lucky am I that it fell on Arcade day?!

This gorgeous Suki skin from Belleza is one of the items you can pick up today at The Arcade and I can’t tell you how much I love it. There’s a mixture of tones available, of course more of the paler variety for this style, as well as a ton of beautiful make ups. But my absolute favourite part of this skin, is the lips. I didn’t adjust my shape one tiny bit for this picture, the lips are naturally pouty and kissable looking! Don’t forget these skins are just 100L a pop, and tradeable! I love being able to grab skins and trade them around my alts, huge bonus.

If you can’t get into Arcade, don’t forget that FaMESHed opened today too, and you can pick up this intricately crafted head piece from Glam Affair there. There’s lots of different colours as well as a couple of styles available.

Hope everyone enjoys shopping today, and I’m looking forward to getting into a blogging routine again now that I’m back.

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!
