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.

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

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!

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!

On The Road Of Least Resistance

On The Road Of Least Resistance

I decided I wanted to blog a more casual look today since it feels like I’ve mostly been taking either fancy, horror or cute pics lately, when in fact this is how you’d more likely catch me dressed around the grid. Something casual, over sized and comfy looking. More often than not I’m barefoot too, but I am so happy that Coco released these Ugg style boots and I can see myself wearing them a lot over the next couple of months. You can find them in a gacha machine at The Chapter Four, 75Ls per play, so I ended up with a few different colours before I got the chocolate ones I wanted, my dupes were given to friends as a little gift since they’re transfer.

I loved the feel of the sepia windlight for this scene and look that I put together, and I actually built this outfit around the shirt/cardigan combo I’m wearing. This is a new item from Gabriel that you can find at The Mens Dept. It is made for men and not women though, so ladies please make sure you demo before you buy it. There’s no shaping for your tata’s, but you can get away with it pretty easily as an oversized, baggy top. I’m wearing the mens small size which is the smallest it comes in.

Finally I added Drifts new unisex, chunky scarf, which has a great cable knit texture and lots of dark, autumn shades to choose from. Oh and a small note about this bag, it’s from House of Fox and it’s old but honestly it’s been a staple in my SL inventory for a while now. I have one almost identical in RL and it’s pretty much my go to bag for day to day use, so makes sense that I use it a lot in SL too!

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!

Autumn Haze

Autumn Haze

I always find it a struggle to blog towards the end of the month. It seems like there’s a lull in releases, almost like the calm before the storm, because in the next 8 days 4 of the major events (FaMESHed, We<3RP, The Mens Dept and C88) will have started new rounds. I'm sure this has everything to do with the fact that most people have more money at the start of the month since they've just been paid etc, but I think having at least one big event in the last week of the month would be worthwhile.

And yes, I know it's Halloween today and I probably should be posting a picture of me all dressed up for it, but honestly I've done more dark pictures this month than I probably have the past year and I'm over it! lol

So anyway, I grabbed a few old pieces from my jumble of an inventory and put this picture together mainly to show you the new Ava Rockabilly skin from Belleza that will be available at the Rockabilly event which opens on Saturday. I always love Belleza's eyeliners on their make ups and the red lips will give you a great retro look.

When The Sun Goes Down (and the weird questions meme)

When The Sun Goes Down

I might as well make this Summerfest week on my blog because there is seriously so much awesome to be found there! Not only does this event boast tons and tons of fab items from amazing creators, it’s also a great little sim to snap some pictures on. This is the second one I’ve taken there in the last few days and even with a whole bunch of shoppers there I didn’t experience any lag with my shadows on for pics.

I’m wearing this gorgeous new skin from Belleza that you can find there, as well as this 3D Flower bikini and hat which are both by Baiastice. Baiastice is definitely one of my favourites on the grid for mesh swimwear so make sure you check out these latest pieces!

Anyway, enough of the gushing, it’s been a while since I took part in one of Berry’s blog memes so I decided to add in her questions one today as well, since it was an easy one!

1. Which was the last sim you visited? (Other than your home) Collabor88

2. Does your avatar look like the real you? Not especially I don’t think.

3. Do you wear underwear/panties underneath your clothing when out and about on the grid? Sometimes I wear a bra under a top but only to make it part of “the look” not because I think I need to be wearing it lol oh and I will wear panties if I’m wearing a mesh skirt that doesn’t quite cover everything. But other than those occasions, nope.

4. If you won a million linden dollars, what would be the first thing you buy inworld? A sim, part of it for me to live on and part as a noob welcome area, but yanno, a really nice one and not something that was built circa 2007.

5. Have you ever bought something in SL and then realized afterwards that you had already owned it from before? Yep, in my first few months of SL when I RP’d I found a store selling really fancy silks and I was forever going back and buying stuff, in the end I doubled quite a few sets without realizing it.

6. Have you ever done anything in Second Life that would be considered illegal in real life? Umm, trespassing. I’m not a hardcore criminal like Berry who breaks into peoples houses but I’ve accidentally landed on random folks property a bunch of times.

7. If you could go out on a date with any other avatar, who would it be? I’m gonna say Marco, I don’t know him but I’m in love with his avatar and styling and in awe of his talent.

8. Who, in your opinion, was the greatest avatar to ever slive? I think for me probably Onyx LeShelle from Maitreya, mainly because her creations are so just well, perfect, and were a large part of what got me interested in SL fashion.

9. What is the most embarrassing thing you’ve ever done inworld? Hmm, lots of awkward moments that involve failed TPs, missing clothes, accidentally saying something in local that was meant for IM or in the wrong IM box etc, I don’t think I can pin point one as the most embaressing.

10. If your avatar had a mind of its own, what do you think it would say to you? “You know that gravity doesn’t have to exist here right?”

Anyway, I’m out for the day, ciao!

TFI Friday!

TFI Friday

I don’t think I’m alone when I say, I love Fridays! This one is no different and as always we got a great selection of cheapies from the Fifty Linden Friday event.

My favourite was this Flash skin from Belleza. There are 3 different make up options to choose from (I’m wearing the teal) all for a mere 50Ls each! I do get excited when we’re treated to skins for discount prices in events, mainly coz I’m pretty tight when it comes to spending out a fortune on fatpacks just to get different make up options, so event skins like Belleza for FLF and Glam Affair’s at Collabor88 are always something I snap up. I did have to change my shape a fair bit to get a good look with this skin, but I don’t mind doing that at all.

Here’s to the weekend!
