Rebel Girls

So I took this picture last week with my friends Kalli and LouLou, it’s always great to work with these girls and they’re both such big inspirations to me. Kalli has already posted her version of this pic and I think LouLou will be soon too, so click on over to their Flickrs up there and check them out!

We styled a big mix up of stuff that’s available at Collabor88 which opened last week. The theme was “To The Lighthouse” but instead of going for a traditional, nautical theme, we went a little more urban pirate.

I love the tiny daisy dukes from Baiastice, there are bright colours as well as denims to grab so they’re perfect for summer. The tie dyed tanks from Maitreya that you can also pick up from C88 were an easy match. Slightly longer tops and short shorts are always a great combo.

LaGyo released 2 great sets of accessories for this round, for pirates and sailors. Obviously we went for the pirate look with the black hats and co-ordinating necklaces. Also check out Yummy’s bargain Aviators, they’re a must have.

Make sure you pay C88 a visit to stock up for summer if you haven’t already!

Out Of My Mind

Out Of My Mind

Collabor88 opened it’s doors today to it’s new Turntables and Milkshakes round, bringing lots of retro and 50s inspired items.

I couldn’t resist just doing a simple post of the new Coral skin from Glam Affair that you can find there, for obvious reasons!

Maybe I’m biased, but this is my new favourite from Glam Affair and will be for a while. I love how it has a slightly more mature look than some of the recent releases. The shape of the eyelids, nose and lips are all just perfect and I didn’t need to play with my shape one tiny bit, for it to feel like “me”. On top of that I loved all the make up options available and know that I’m gonna have a lot of fun mixing them up. I won’t be taking this skin of for a goodly long time!

Waiting For Spring

Waiting For Spring

Yep. We’re only 2 weeks into January and I totally jumped the gun with this spring themed pic, and you know what? I’m not even sorry! Spring is my absolute favourite season and I’m ready for it to happen like, today.

I wanted to show you guys this new sweater from Deadwool who are participating in C88 as a guest this round. I love the lace detail on the shoulders and the fact that you can wear it with or without the collar. Yep I could’ve worn it with a scarf, some pants and boots to make a more wintery pic, but I love the combination of it paired with shorts and heels. This is a great item that’ll see you through the change of seasons easily.

Also added the new Lamb hair that’s out at C88, and beyond thrilled that they are making regular appearances there now. There can never be enough Lamb hair on the grid in my opinion. Another C88 item are the ritzy beads from Maxi Gossamer. I always buy beaded necklaces whenever I get the chance, even if I don’t need them right there and then, since they’re one of my classic go to accessories, and this knotted version fits in nicely.

Hope everyone is having a great start to their week and don’t worry, I’m sure I have a few more wintery posts in me before I decide it’s spring already!

A Million Different People

A Million Different People

Hiiii! Hope everyone is having a good start to their week. I’m back today with a bunch of new things that were released over the past few days.

First some newness from Collaborate, the hair from Lamb as well as the cropped pants and oxford style shoes with socks which are both by Baiastice. I love Lamb hair and I always get excited when I see her participating in events, there are 2 styles out at C88 for you to treat yourself with!

Also new are the sunglasses by Sorgo and the scarf from Pixel Mode which are both unisex items you can find at The Mens Dept. Sorgo always releases unique style glasses and gives you the option of having them as regular ones or shades, lately they’ve been giving a “display” model too, which has the arms folded up so you can hold them in your hand. This scarf is great too, I’ve been looking for new ones over the past couple of weeks and I love how the mesh is shaped so that it partially covers your mouth. It’s not rigged so easy to resize if you need.

Finally I’m wearing Emery’s latest item for FaMESHed, which is the cardigan with T-shirt, a great item for the colder weather and really stylish too. I’m using a recent pose that was out at Imeka’s store a little while ago as well.

Oh and let me just add…I know I’ve taken several pictures at Neva Sky Villi since it opened but it’s just my absolute favourite sim for taking shots at right now. There are so many different areas to explore that you could take 100 pics there and never have the same background twice. It can be pretty laggy at times but I think the results are worth it.

So guys, this belt thing from Remarkable Oblivion is out tomorrow for The Mens Dept. I don’t really know what to say about it except that it’s pretty damn cool. It comes with a matching bow tie/collar version too. You should get it!

The sign in the background is one of Seven Emporium’s items for FaMESHed and it’s a great little piece of decor to add to your home.

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!

And Where We Walk…

And Where We Walk...

Hi guys! I hope you’re all enjoying your summer, I am and honestly I think this is why I’ve been distracted from blogging over the past couple of weeks. Anyway this is just a quick post today because I wanted to show you the new weekend jeans from Drift and talk a little about the location I used for this pic.

The location is actually a main store for an awesome new (so new that it hasn’t even been open a week yet!) brand called Seven Emporium which makes the most gorgeous little knick knacks and deco pieces. Of course you can tell the sim is a great place for photoshoots, with lots of beautiful little areas hidden away for you to explore. I definitely recommend checking the store out if you’re after unique, original mesh decor and maybe taking a photo or three! Keep an eye out for Seven Emporium in the next round of The Mens Dept too!

There He Goes

There He Goes

It’s almost time for Summerfest 2013! I have been so excited about this event I can’t even tell you, the line up of creators participating is amazing, probably one of the best I’ve seen in a long time.

Summerfest officially opens tomorrow, the 15th and runs for 2 weeks, with brands like Glam Affair, Baiastice, Tee*fy, Floorplan, Art Dummy and so so much more, clothes, skins, accessories, decor and poses, everything is there!. You can check out the official details here and I got to tell you, this is one event you don’t want to miss.

I got together with Harper to take a shot with some previews for you. I’m wearing a cool new swimsuit by Nylon Outfitters that you can find at the event, it’s not mesh but does come with Lola appliers if that’s your bag. I’ve added the new sunglasses and hat by Yummy which are perfect summer accesories. The pose is from a new set by Olive Juice at the event, I definitely recommend grabbing all these because it’s rare for Olive Juice to make an appearance and their items are always worth having, even if it’s just to tuck away till needed! The picture was taken at the Summerfest location, it’s a real pretty beachy sim so make sure you check that out as well once you got your new summer gear!

Also I wanted to say, from a bloggers point of view, that I’ve been really impressed with the way that this event has been so efficiently managed, with previews etc being set out on time. It’s really been a pleasure to blog and took anyway stress away that usually comes with blogging an event which I’m sure other bloggers can relate to!

You can find the credits from the lovely little package that is Harper here on her blog Pixel Pantomime, and make sure you visit Summerfest tomorrow when it opens, you won’t be disappointed!

FaMESHed are celebrating their one year anniversary this month and have invited back all the designers who have participated so far! There is a huuuuuge array of goodies available, clothes and accessories for both men and women as well as lots of great decor pieces, so make sure you visit!

I was immediately in love with this new denim jacket that Emery released for the event. I’ve been silently willing someone to make one for a while now and I’m so glad Emery did. There are a few different shades available, I opted for the mid blue, and the quality is fantabulous.

Baiastice also have some great new releases for this round, including this cute dress! It would’ve been so easy to dress this up in a formal way, but I decided I wanted to wear it a bit differently. It comes in both striped or plain, (I say plain, it’s a white top half with a coloured skirt part) patterns and is gonna be great for the spring/summer season. They also released a new cross jewellery set, which comprises of a necklace and matching ring, these are exactly the kinda style I love to wear so I know I’ll get a lot of use out of them and I’m sure they’ll make a few appearances here!

I’d been tempted to wear a pair of scruffy combat type boots with this outfit, which would’ve looked cute too but I decided to go with these SLink heels that I picked up yesterday because I wanted to mention their sale to you. If you didn’t know, SLink are reducing everything by 30% for this week (excluding the mesh hands and feet) which will run until the 5th of May. You can read more details about the why at their official blog.

I picked up these glasses by Sorgo at the latest round of TDR that started on Friday. I love the style of them but I noticed that the lens was darker on the bottom half than it was on the top, which would’ve been fine if it blended into the lighter half, but it didn’t. It just looked like when SL messes up and you get those squares of darker resolution on your pics, right under my eyes. So I fixed that in Photoshop because I didn’t like it.

Anyway, that’s all from me today, hope you’re enjoying your week and make sure to visit FaMESHed!

She’s Just A Girl

She's Just a Girl

Happy Monday peoples!

I had a nice relaxing weekend and a great afternoon catching up with all the new things today, so I got a few to show you!

First Lamb released a couple of new hairs, as usual they’re similar with slight variations, which I love because if one doesn’t suit my face shape the other normally does. But one of my favourite things about Lamb hair is their ombre and roots pack. I love the contrast of the light blondes with the really dark roots, this always works well for me coz I prefer to wear skin with dark eyebrows even when I’m wearing light hair and so the roots are a nice touch, to make me look like even more of a bottle blonde :D

Baiastice had a nice spring/summer release and while this top would look great with shorts on the beach, I decided to match it with the new Villena high waist jeans for more of a rock chick look. The top comes in a few different colours and in either a studs or pinstripe option.

TDR Fusion kicked off a new round on Friday with lots of great, cheap goodies so I’m wearing the new sunglasses I picked up there by Swallow. The fab little owl bracelet I’m wearing is by Erratic and was their FLF item but you can usually still pick these things up in the store after, albeit for a lil bit more dollar. The chunky chains I’m wearing are Glow Studio for C88 and come with matching bracelets too!

Now a bit about the tattoo I’m wearing. As you know it’s been impossible to create single sleeve tats in SL due to the system layer pattern only having one sleeve, so it would always make two identical ones. But with mesh it can be done! I admit I’ve been sceptical about mesh tattoos so far, I bought one once without demoing and I hated it, it didn’t fit at all.

I’m super fussy about any tattoo’s I wear in SL, I never want to wear “heavy” ones, or ones that aren’t feminine enough and this is always a problem if you’re ever trying to buy sleeves. Also I like to have half sleeves since I got my mesh hands, otherwise the tattoo gets faded out with the hands blend layer and it just looks all kinds of wrong. ANYWAY, today I was browsing the marketplace again for tattoos, which I seem to do a lot, when I came across this one by B*Fly. There wasn’t a demo which put me off right away, but it did have a 5 star review so I just thought ok, I’mma do it! Well I wasn’t disappointed. It comes in 5 different sizes, with sleeves for both left and right arm, so you can pick which side you want to wear it. It also has a regular tattoo layer that goes over your shoulder and helps to blend it in. The sizes are -perfect- it fits so snugly against your shape that you wouldn’t even know it was a mesh layer. The only issue I had was that in certain poses when my shoulder was twisted or at a different angle to normal, the mesh kinda disappeared into the top of my shoulder. But it was only a little bit and only in certain poses so definitely not enough to put me off buying more, or being extremely happy with this one.

Anyway, that was much more long winded than I intended to make it so I’ll leave it there for now!
