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.

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.

I got a mix of some old and new stuff today!

First this new hair from D!va. It’s a kind of hybrid hair with the bottom section made of mesh while the main part is just like regular hair. I have to admit that the few hairs that have been released that are a mix like that are ones that I like. Because you can get the nice wispy textures to frame your face without having giant alphas around them, which is a pain for taking photos. This hair is super cute and definitely worth demoing!

I’m also wearing the new cardigan that was released by Belgravia a couple of days ago. I loooove cardigans – seriously can’t get enough of them and being able to layer things -even though it’s a nuisance and often impossible to layer mesh on mesh. There are still lots of pretty texture layer items to go with mesh outerwear though, like this top from Tres Blah.

The necklace is from Glow Studio and I think has a couple of days left on offer at TDR, so make sure you snatch it up! I buy a lot of my accessories from events like TDR or C88, even if I don’t have anything in mind for it at the time they’re always a good buy “just in case”.

So that’s my hump day LOTD for you! Hope you like :)

A little while ago I noticed that I was wearing a lot of blue and white and while I was dressing up for this picture I realised that I’d moved on to yellows. I’m pretty sure this has something to do with the seasons and when I think about it I do tend to do the same in real life, lots more blue, yellow and white in the spring and summer, reminiscent of  a summer sky. Happy colours :D

So here’s a little outfit I put together that’s exactly that! I love this mesh cardigan by Toki Doki, it’s so comfortable looking and throw-on-able that it’s pretty much a staple inventory item I’d say, in multiple colours of course. I’m wearing the new sunglasses from Mon Tissu which are fab, and this pretty Cynthia hair from Truth.

I just wanted to mention my pose which is by Marukin. I love their poses, really love. If you want a pose that is understated and radiates cuteness then definitely stop by Marukin’s mainstore. They also participate regularly in C88 and the poses available there right now are great.

This will be my last post for a few days now as real life is tearing me away, but I’ll be back in a week or two!

Stay

Monday morning blues anyone? I probably should’ve made a cheery picture today but instead here’s one to wallow in that emo-ness.

The lingerie set I’m wearing is by Whippet & Buck at C88. It’s a nice classic little set and I love the peach colour it comes in, since it fits with my favourite nude colours of late.

The pose is by Penchant which is actually a little side project for me. I’ve been making a few things just for me and for fun lately but I decided to put them up for sale on the marketplace as well. There’s not much there right now but here’s the link anyway.

I used a simple setting, just a couple of bits from What’s Next and Lisp. I spent a little bit of time at the Home and Garden Expo yesterday and if I’m honest I think I was just completely overwhelmed with the huge offering of goodness. I only looked at 2 sims but I don’t think there was a single vendor there that I didn’t want to buy something from. So hopefully over the next couple of days I’ll compose myself and go back ha.

So I’m going to wallow in my Monday morning blues for a couple more hours, then start looking forward to the week!

Expecting

This is not a fashion post but just a picture I took, since this is how I currently look in SL. Yep, I have an inventory stuffed with beautiful mesh clothes and I can’t wear any of them thanks to this little bump!

I’m not really complaining of course…well I kind of am because I would really, really like to be able to wear mesh again, other than for taking blog pictures…but I am getting kind of attached to the bump, which is a good thing I suppose because it’s gonna be around for a few more weeks yet, and growing bigger every day. Of course, it’s all the man’s fault.

So yea, free tanks from Jane are rocking my fat, pregnant, virtual world right now!
