All Choked Up And You’re Ok

All Choked Up And You're Ok

We <3 RP and The Mens Dept both opened over the past of couple of days, 4th and 5th of April respectively. We Love RP has a record number of participating stores this round (about 60 I believe) and The Mens Dept are celebrating their 2nd anniversary.

So I took off my regular piercings to show you this new set from Haus of Darcy that's available at We Love RP. It comes with a couple of different variations and is of course mod so you can remove bits of it if you want to make it simpler, etc. It also includes the face paints that I'm wearing and I think is a great deal at 75L per metal colour, or 300L for the fatpack.

From The Mens Dept I'm wearing this cool chain necklace from Zibska, which comes with both male and female versions. It's a great fashion item, and works perfectly for fantasy type looks too.

Finally I'm wearing the Ria skin from Belleza, which had previously been an exclusive at C88, but now you can pick up the whole line in the main store.

Sunshine She’s Here

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!

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.

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

The Red Lady

The Fantasy Collective starts a new round tomorrow, which is where you can find this dark themed roses and chain headpiece by Orsini Sun. Fantasy and role play geared events like these are always great to explore and pick up unusual, unique items in that you might not otherwise find in the big, mainstream events. Definitely worth a visit!

Have you picked up your Valentines gift from Glam Affair yet? There’s two skins in the pack, I’m wearing the Valentines 01, which I love, love! The group has a small fee to enter (it was something like 30L when I joined, not sure of the exact cost now but I know it’s not much!) and then you can pick these up for free.

Yes I’m wearing the Tyr hair from Truth again, sue me, I love it! I also added the gorgeous Jewelled Dragon’s Egg necklace from Maxi Gossamer to give the finishing touch to my red lady.

The first week of the month is always a rush of events opening, so today I’m showing you a couple of new items that came out in the past few days.

First of all from The Mens Dept is the Boston Buddy, cuddle pup from Birdy which is a great prop and pet to carry around the grid. The modelling and texturing is extremely well done, and best of all it doesn’t require feeding! It also comes with a HUD so that you can change the colour of the little sweater that it’s wearing. I’m also wearing the new Metro shoes from JD that you can pick up there too. There’s both a male and female version included, the female ones come with some cute ankle socks attached that have colour change options. They’re a great buy at 250Ls, since both men and women could dress them up or down really easily.

Another new item is this denim shirt from Deadwool which you can pick up at The Chapter Four that opened last week. There are a few different denim shades available, as well as pois (polka dots!) versions. I paired it with some cropped pants for this pic but it looks awesome with a little leather skirt too.

Couple of other new pieces are the cuff from Maxi Gossamer at February’s FaMESHed round, and this Tyr hair from Truth which I think everyone loves coz I’ve seen so many amazing pictures on Flickr with it already. Definitely worth trying out if you’re looking for something different.

Do You Wanna Do It My Way

Do You Wanna Do It My Way

Just a quick post coz it’s Friday and I’m about to go off for the weekend, but I wanted to show you guys this cute new dress from Baiastice that’s out tomorrow for FaMESHed. It’s a great, classic shift style but also comes with the option of a silky undershirt too, which is colour change. It’s a great, staple piece for your inventory!

Also, look at my new skin! It’s a special version of the Mokatana skin from Glam Affair that you can grab today for Fifty Linden Friday, that’s right, 50Ls – don’t miss it!

PS – I just realised I used this exact pose a week ago! sigh I knew it looked familiar, that’ll teach me to try and take time off! I also think it’s a sign I need to arrange my animations folder…

Nymph

Nymph

Hiiii all! I know my posts have been few and far between of late, but I’m hoping that this is the week I’m gonna make a come back.

There’s a simple reason I haven’t been around as much and the short version is that about 3 weeks ago I stopped smoking in RL. I know that it’s a good thing in the long run, but for now everything that was routine and normal for me…isn’t. I won’t bore you with a whole lot of detail but yea. It’s hard for me to do things that I would’ve smoked during or after, so my PC time has been a lot less than usual.

Anyway! On to stuff you’re actually here to read! First of all I wanna talk about my new shoes! These are the new Cult Stilettos from Just Design, that are add ons to their tip toe feet. Note that is to the JD MyFeet, they will NOT work with SLink feet. I like that JD have given another option for creators to make shoes around, as well as for people who didn’t necessarily like the shape of the SLink feet, which can sometimes appear very wide. Also with JD selling add ons at TDR Fusion for 70Ls a pair, you can’t really go wrong! The nude version that I’m wearing here can be picked up at TDR Fusion for a couple more days, but there is also a release in the main store of 15 other colours, which are priced at 295Ls each. Also they come with this awesome half sock add on, which can be worn with the shoe or alone. Plus you get the usual sock versions with the MyFeet too! So many options for such a great price. Oh and if you’re worried about tinting the feet, then you don’t need to! Just Design have produced not just a line of presets, but special textures to match the most popular skin brands too. Other than the SLink appliers which are made by the skin creators themselves, you can’t get a more flawless match in presets, than the one JD offers.

Also new are these cool steam punk style wings by Atomic Faery for The Fantasy Collective, which opened last week. They have a stained glass effect which I noticed changed colour depending on the windlight setting/angle I used, which was very cool!

I love this Penelope bed by MudHoney that came out a couple of weeks ago at The Garden event. Black, white and purple are one of my favourite bedroom colour schemes so this Glam version is right up my alley, but there are a ton of other colour options available as well as a kids version! There’s another week or so on this event, don’t forget to check it out if you haven’t already.

So that’s me for today, hopefully I’ll be back around more often!

Promises, Promises.

Promises, promises.

I loooove this Ria skin from Belleza! You can pick it up for a bargain price at C88 and I have to say, it’s my new favourite of theirs. I like that I look slightly older and don’t have a complete baby face, since that’s not really my style. I don’t usually switch up my day to day skin often, I’m really tempted with this one.

The eyebrows, nose and lips are perfect in my opinion, I could be biased of course, coz I just love the way they sit on my shape. Though, I’d like to see more under eye shading (which I would like to see in most skins – not just this one), that’s always something I can add on tattoo layers.

I’m also wearing a recent release from Truth, which I just adore the bangs on. I have a couple of styles that have similar, centre swept bangs and I really like the way they frame the face.

Finally, new mesh eyes from Ikon! Ok, I’m a little late in the day to announce them on here maybe, since I’ve been slack with my actual posts. But you can pick them up at FaMESHed, which opened last week. All the colours are now available but as usual I decided to stick with one of my favourite blues for this pic.

That’s me for the week, hope everyone enjoys their weekend! I should be back to my regular blogging schedule next week, now that we’re officially over the holidays, so till then!

Get It Started

Get It Started

There’s no other way to start this post except with a huge, happy new year and best wishes to everyone!

Now with the holidays out of the way, I’m glad to get back to some sort of normality and routine. Which includes some daily log in time and of course the party season in SL is usually extended for a few days, since a lot of people, were probably too busy racing round in RL to be able to enjoy any time partying with our pixel friends. So if you find yourself invited to a belated new years bash over the next few days, then this gorgeous little number from Baiastice, that was released today at FaMESHed, could be just the ticket!

It’s actually a seperate top and skirt, so you can mix and match them with other colours or items from your inventory which is a great bonus. I love the ruffles on the side of the skirt, which always make me think of the 80s, so I decided to style it up that way with some messy, platinum blonde hair, fishnet tights, beads and some visible bra straps!

Hope everyone has had a great couple of weeks, and here’s to a wonderful 2014.
