Does She Speak Eloquently

Does She Speak Eloquently

Happy hump day guys! Just here to show you the new Aria skin from Glam Affair, that will be out on the 1st at The Arcade!

Aida has done a beautiful job as usual with this skin, and with her new seperate options there are so many possibilities. You can see the full gacha key here on her Flickr, but basically there are 12 combination skins available as commons, all with different make up options and then the rares are a clean skin base and lots of extras. If you manage to collect the full set including the rares, there are SO many ways to wear this skin. In this picture I’m wearing one of the combination commons, but added some eyebrows, a nose and under eye shadows from the rares. It’s really a lot of fun to play around with and try out different looks.

Also adore the new hairs from Tram, and while they don’t actually sell a purple hair, I just used a light shade (the dark salmon colour) and tinted it in world.

Fanatik Blogger Search - Coral Lacey

Hiiii guys! Hope everyone is doing well this weekend!

I’ve been away in RL for a couple of days and I rushed home and jumped on the PC coz I knew I needed to put a look together and make a pic for the Fanatik blogger search. You can read all the deets on how to enter here. Closing date is tomorrow though so be quick!

Anyway, I put it off right till the last minute since Fanatik regularly appear in one of my favourite monthly events, FaMESHed and I wanted to see what new good things they put out, which were these fab mesh leggings. I probably didn’t need more mesh leggings if I’m honest, I have a lot, BUT…I didn’t have any in camel! It’s always nice to have slightly different variations of things too, so they made their way into my inventory while I got the rest of my outfit together.

I paired the leggings up with a new top and cardigan from Baiastice which are absolutely perfect together. The Aida top is of course just like the Aida dress that was released a few months ago, and the cardigan fits right over the mesh so you don’t have to worry about wearing a bunch of random sizes to try and get your layering even without mesh pieces poking through.

Lelutka put out their latest hair collection while I was away, 3 very vintage and very fabulous styles so I snapped one of those up and decided to wear it in a dark red just to add a bit more colour to the whole look. This Gloria style comes with the hairband included that also has a dainty butterfly attachment, this can be removed with a click or you might choose to recolour it to match your accessories.

Also new is this statement necklace from .Olive. and the chain clutch bag by Lazybones, both of which can be found at the new weekly event SL Fashion Week.

Anyway, that’s me for today. Good luck to everyone who enters the Fanatik search!

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!

Cruella

Cruella

I don’t often get inspired to dress up like this for a picture, if you read my blog often you’ll probably know that I tend to do more LOTD pics for outfits that I’d wear every day. But as soon as I saw this new jacket from Mimikri at TDR Fusion, I knew I had to do some kind of modern Cruella inspired look. It’s not actually meant to be dalmation print, it’s snow leopard print but hey, it’s white with black spots so I couldn’t resist.

Unfortunately Lelutka’s Salome hair doesn’t come half black and half white, I debated PSing it but then realised that I would probably mess it up some how so I just went with the full white instead. Anyway, this is only inspired by Cruella, not ACTUAL Cruella.

The dress that I’m wearing underneath is another item that I dug up in my inventory (been doing that a lot lately) it was released by CIA Designs a few months ago and I didn’t get round to blogging it, but it was perfect for this look and would be fab for a Christmas party with all it’s red sparklies, very festive!

Before I finish this post I just wanted to let you guys know that this will be my last for a few days now, a week at least but possibly not till after Christmas as I am flying back home soon to be with my family for the holidays. I’m gonna try and get on and maybe blog something in a week though, but if I don’t then don’t think it’s because I dropped off the face of the planet!

Anyway, I hope you like this little look and all have great holidays if I’m not back before to say that again!

Nyx

Just a quickie post and picture today, mostly coz I’m feeling lazy but I really wanted to show you this new Nyx mesh hair that was released by Truth a couple of days ago. So here it is!

I don’t usually wear tattoos so when I decided I wanted one for this pic I had no idea where to go to get a good one, but I did know just the blog to look at. I always see Oakley Foxtrot on Flickr with some amazing tattoos, so after scoping out her blog Thought Classic, I knew exactly where to go.

This is one of the reasons I enjoy blogging, there are so many unique and different styles out there in SL and if I feel like a different look one day but don’t know which stores to go to it doesn’t take me long to find it through someone else’s blog and so I like to think I might be helping people in the same way too.

Just a Girl

Happy hump day everyone! Today is a good day, I’m not quite sure why but it just feels like one. Maybe it’s something to do with the 11 hours of sleep I had last night, who knows.

I have a couple of new things to show you here as well as a teaser. First of all, I loved this hair from Burley when it was released recently but I know I’m not the only person who was worried that the high parting made my forehead look too big. So when my friend Francisc Guardian showed me these new hats that he’ll be releasing soon, I had an instant bingo! moment. The hat is non rigged mesh so you can adjust it easily to fit over hair and while I sometimes struggle to get that fit right (especially over mesh hair as well) this style just worked perfectly with it.

Ricielli released these mini trench coats last week and this green version is available at The Dressing Room for only 70Ls. It’s a complete and utter bargain and perfect for the cooler seasons now upon us! Also new is this gorgeous necklace from League. I always get excited when I see a release from League and this was no exception. It’s non rigged mesh so easily adjusted and comes with matching earrings. It’s available in several different metal tones and comes with black and brown strap options.

Just quickly wanted to mention my skin, because I’m wearing the new Glam Affair Ginny again that was released at Collabor88 on Monday. I said in my last post how much I loved this skin and it’s a serious contender to become my new every day skin, however I do prefer natural looks and the bright red lipstick that it comes with just didn’t do that for me. Instead I added the Belleza Shyla/Betty lipstick on top. This comes in a pack with 9 different colours and I’m using number 7 which is pretty natural looking. There is a slight discolouration where it’s lighter at the corners of the mouth, (this happens even if you’re wearing the lipstick with Shyla too, so it’s not just because it’s mismatched to this skin) but  it really is so minimal that it doesn’t bother me and I didn’t even need to make an effort to cover it with editing in Photoshop because I couldn’t even notice it while I was editing. So anyway, that’s my cheeky way of being able to wear this skin a lot more often while I cross my fingers and hope for some more versions of it to be released!

Lastly, the location I used for this shot was The Looking Glass. I will happily hold my hands up and admit that I suck at finding locations and usually I find them through pictures on Flickr or other blogs and this one stood out to me when I saw it over at Amy Beebe’s blog, Pixel Vanity in one of her recent posts. The sim is absolutely gorgeous and has lots of different nooks and crannys that you can explore, it’s one of those sims that I’ll revisit a lot and take pictures in different areas because there’s just so much there.

Anyway, that’s me for this Wednesday!
