And So You’re Back

And So You're Back

You may or may not have noticed my absence over the past 6 weeks or so. I had an extended vacation to RL, which was great, but I’m super glad to be back and getting in a routine again.

I have a lot of things to catch up on but I sort of decided that I’d just go ahead and show you some coming soon stuff first!

This Emily skin from Belleza is going to be out in a few days for Arcade. There are 3 rares and 12 regular skins available, varying tones and make ups. I can tell you that I did not edit the shape of my lips at all in Photoshop, they just look this amazing in world thanks to Shyla’s handy work.

I’m wearing a new hair from Little Bones which is going to be out on the 30th at Swag Fest. There are going to be 5 new releases from Little Bones at this event but this one is one of my faves. A ton of options are included, different sizes as well as the option to change the colour on each half of your hair. I can’t wait to play around with it!

The fancy septum piercing is from LaGyo at August’s round of C88 and you still have a week or so to go grab it!

I hope everyone’s had a great summer, please excuse me if this is all a bit rusty but I’ll be back in the swing of things soon! Don’t forget to click through to Flickr to see the bigger pic ♥

So this is a picture of me, on a rock, in a bikini, with some flamingos. I just sort of had fun with this picture and the pink windlight, flamingos always make me feel frivolous for some reason!

The flamingos from Ohmai at Summerfest were the inspiration for this pic, along with the palm headband from LaGyo. LaGyo just released a huuuge summer collection of unique and fun accessories, at their main store, all with a “nymph” theme. This is just one part of the Dryad Nymphs collection, the flowers on the band come in lots of different colours and it’s a great tropical, eye catcher.

A couple more recent items from Summerfest are the Ria skin from Belleza, the Summerwind hair from Tableau Vivant and the Freedom bikini from Baiastice. Ria is one of my favourite Belleza skins, so seeing the pretty summer make ups for it made my day, and I love the subtle “sunburn” layer that’s included to give your face a nice pink glow. I have nothing but love for the Tableau Vivant hairs out at this event, very natural, beachy styles which are my favourites. There’s also a version of the Summerwind hair with a hat included, called Soleil, which I confess to wearing for several days in a row! I have no doubt it’ll pop up in one of my pictures soon.

Make sure you visit Summerfest as it’s not open for long, and check out LaGyo’s new collection!

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.

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!
