Just A Whisper On The Wind

Just A Whisper On The Wind

Helloooo! Hope everyone has had a great start to their week, did you spend all your Ls at Shoetopia over the weekend? I know I splurged!

So let me start with my shoes in this outfit. They’re a new pair in a line from Tulip which you can find at Shoetopia and are made to fit the SLink medium feet. I was so excited when Tulip branched out into hair a few months ago and I think I’m even more excited that now they’re creating shoes too. I love that the SLink add ons have given so many other creators a chance to make shoes, the variety out there now is just fantastic. These bootie wedges from Tulip, and the flat roman sandals that she made are two of my fave add ons that you can find at Shoetopia.

I’m wearing another Tulip release that is this halterneck top, there was a version out for Fifty Linden Friday last week, but don’t worry if you didn’t grab it, there’s a whole line of colours available at their main store. The cardigan is from Drift at TDR Fusion and you have a few more days to pick that up before the round changes this coming Friday. It comes in both a plain and striped version which both have 3 different colour textures to choose from via a HUD. The hair is an adorable recent release from D!va that you can pick up at C88.

A Little Birdy Told Me….

A Little Birdy Told Me

There are so many fantastic events going on right now, with autumn fashions making a big splash on the grid, so I’m put this simple little look together with a few new pieces.

Birdy is one of those skin brands, like The Skinnery, that I always see pictures of people looking fantastic in on Flickr, but a lot of the time when I demo them and see them on myself my reaction is…oh. Something about my shape just doesn’t really suit them but I went out to demo this Ingrid skin from Birdy that you can find at The Chapter Four (for only 99Ls!!) and I just loved it. It won’t replace my every day Glam Affair skins, but I’ll definitely be pulling it out when I need a change. I used Annan Adored’s Tan Skin windlight setting for the close up because it gives some nice added saturation to the skin that I can play around with in PS if I want to. I visited the Birdy main store to pick up the appliers for SLink hands and feet and decided that the sim was so pretty that I’d take my pictures there too!

A Little Birdy Told Me

Some more new things from Collabor88, this fantastic long line cardigan from House of Fox, I love the slightly square shape to the shoulders on the mesh, which makes it a little bit different. Also new are these boots from Ison @ C88 which, I’m not gonna lie, are just to die for. They’re obviously mesh and at only 188Ls a pair you can easily afford to stock up for autumn and winter!

I’m wearing this new hairstyle from Tulip as well, which is available at The Seasons Story event. This is absolutely my favourite one Mina has made so far, I didn’t even want to edit it with wisps and strands like I normally try to do, because I just loved it the way it was.

Finally both the poses are from a new autumn set that Kirin released for The Seasons Story too!

Nothing Sweet About Me

Nothing Sweet About Me

I really don’t do the cute look very often, because frankly there are a ton of bloggers who do it way better than I can and it’s not something I’m usually comfortable in, but now and then there’s a release that just makes me wanna be cute and this adorable curly hair style from D!va is one of those.

So in a bid to be a bit cuter, I decided that of course I needed some pink. This new turtle neck from Teefy that you can find at Collabor88 was perfect for that and so was this pose with owl prop from Imeka. You can find the prop at The Seasons Story event which just opened.

I ended up cropping this picture a little weird, I normally would’ve cropped it smaller cutting off my legs more but I really wanted to show you guys these skyline tights! I admit I squeed a little when I saw the London skyline version and couldn’t wait to put them on, there’s also a New York and Paris version too. These are from Cannibelle which is just on the marketplace for the moment, along with some fab polka dotted tights as well. Perfect for this season and best of all they’re compatible with the SLink mesh feet!

Anyway, my regular style will resume tomorrow coz I’m really not this sweet at all.

And Then I Woke Up

And Then I Woke Up

Such a massive contrast in this picture today compared to the little bit NSFW one I did yesterday. This is one of the things I love about Second Life, I can be anything I want on any given day and I hope I manage to get that across on my blog with the mix up of pictures I take.

Anyway, I love this super pretty, romantic look. The top is a new item from Baiastice at FaMESHed, while the skirt is from Davi Designs, which actually comes as a set with another top but I wanted to mix n match. The hair is a new release as well from Tulip for The Arcade and again I’m so excited to see more hair releases from them.

Hope everyone is enjoying their week, at least it’s almost Friday!

Take The Hint

Take The Hint

It’s always exciting when one of your favourite designers branches out into making different things than you’d normally expect from them, so I was bouncing when I saw that Mina from Tulip released hairs last week. I love this smoothed bob that she put out, and the ombre colours are just my cuppa tea. I definitely recommend checking out the couple of styles that are already released and I can’t wait to see what else Mina can come up with!

Just quickly about this picture, I’ve been wanting to practice some darker pictures lately and today seemed like a good time and I have to say it’s a lot harder than I really thought, trying to get the right lighting so that you can still see what I’m wearing and making the highlights really subtle etc. I’m not unhappy with how this one came out but I know I still need a lot of practice, it just makes me admire the people who can pull this style off effortlessly that much more.

Ride ‘Em

Ride 'Em

Hi guys! I’ve been away for a couple of weeks doing well, RL summer things! But today I’m back and thought I’d go with a casual little look just to get me back into the swing of it and to catch up on some fab things I missed out on.

First of all the Jill hair with hat from Truth! If you read my blog often you’ll know that I’m a huge fan of hair with hats, headbands etc, so this cute lil cowgirl do is a very welcome addition.

I’m wearing a recent release from Tulip with this oversized tank that’s cut shorter at the front, I originally wore it as a dress which it looks adorable as, but the angle of the picture basically upskirted me lol, so I just added some Tres Blah system layer shorts.

The necklace I’m wearing is not new but it’s 50% off NOW at HandVerk. They’re having a summer sale which goes on till the 8th of July, with everything half price so I had to nip over and grab a few bargains, make sure you don’t miss out, lots of jewellery and accessories to choose from!

The sunglasses are a new unisex item by K_gs (Kumaki glasses style) available at The Mens Dept that opened today, and the pose is a new release by Kirin at The Box!

Anyway, I have to get off and catch up with some more shopping and picture taking, happy Friday!

Take It Easy

Take It Easy

I’m back today with some more great new things available at Summerfest! It opened yesterday and if you haven’t been yet then you have 2 weeks to do so!

First of all let me start with this new skin from The Skinnery. I’ve seen lots of pictures on Flickr and blogs of Skinnery skins and I always loved the natural and realistic look of them, but whenever I demoed they never seemed to be quite right on me coz of my shape or whatever, that was until today! Angie is The Skinnery’s “beach babe” skin and I have to say I’m really liking it, a lot.

The way the lips are shaded to give them extra shape, the textures and shading around the eyes to give them a very realistic and natural effect is perfect to me. I’m forever wearing dark eye circles on tattoo layers and whatnot, but none of them look as good as these ones do. There are a ton of options for the skin too, with freckles, sunburn and the under eye circles all being on tattoo layers so you can mix it up to your tastes. There are 3 different eyebrow shape hair bases and you a tintable eyebrow tattoo layer too, since the skin comes just with the blonde brows. Anyway, if you’re looking for something a bit different, I definitely recommend this skin!

Also new from Summerfest are these cute tops and shorts from Tulip. The loose tee has a cut out back which gives it a certain sassiness and makes it a little bit different from most others, and the cutoff jean shorts are a classic staple item, which I particularly love in this white wash colour. You can pick up these cool shades by Tabloid there too! Lots of colours available but of course I picked a neutral shade, since that’s usually my thing.

Finally I’m wearing a new hair from Truth, a very relaxed casual braid that’s perfect for a stroll on the beach on Sunday!
