Bit of a formal look for you today, with the new Cleo top and Nayra skirt from Baiastice at C88. Of course they’re seperates so great items to mix and match with other pieces to create many different looks. The skirt in particular is an awesome addition to your formal closet.

Also new is the violin set from Bauhaus Movement, who were Baiastice’ prom date for February’s Collab. The violin itself comes in several different colours, as well as being animated with 6 different poses. I actually edited one of the poses a bit for for this pic, using Animare. It’s great to see the talented LouLou Teichmann branching out into mesh, her perspective as a blogger/photographer is really helpful, since she knows what we need!

The hair I’m wearing is from Blues at The Fantasy Gacha carnival, and if you read my blog regularly you’ll know I’m a huge fan of any styles that are messy and wavy so this is an easy new favourite of mine. Finally I added the pearl collar necklace from Maxi Gossamer at FaMESHed for a touch of vintage glamour.

So this is the new year and I don’t feel any different

.so this is the new year and I don't feel any different

I’m back after a somewhat extended vacation for the holidays. Despite the emo look of this picture I had a lovely time! Hope you all did and are enjoying 2015 so far.

So many events opened while I was away and I’ve got a fair bit of catching up to do, so I mixed a bunch of items from Uber and FaMESHed for this picture.

High waisted pencil skirts are one of my favourite things to wear right now, and sparkles, hello! This skirt at Uber is full of win for me and is an easy party outfit with the blouse that Tres Blah released to go with it. I paired it with my new all time favourite stilettos, Sky by JD, out now at FaMESHed. I’ve been wearing these every day since I got back to the pixel world and I’d recommend them as a staple item for everyone!

I love the uniqueness of this bench from Kalopsia, also out at Uber in the Opulence round. It has a bunch of anims in and comes in both black and white. Great for decor or a picture prop! It also matched perfectly with these fab bunny curtains from Glam Affair, which is part of their decor collection out at The Kawaii Project.

I’ll be back with more stuff I’m catching up on!

Somewhere only we know

Somewhere only we know

The days are definitely getting shorter and colder now, but it seems like I’m still not done with my fall themed pictures.

Today is C88 eve and if you’re impatient to shop, then let me remind you that We ❤ RP opened it's doors on the 4th to a new round and there's lots of great items that can easily lend themselves to mainstream fashion.

The hair I'm wearing is from the new store Entwined, of which I'm definitely a fan. It's a real long style and it's slickness is perfect. Sometimes with hair that's as sleek as this it can look either too big or too flat, Entwined hits that spot just right.

How darling is this cropped maiden top from Pixicat? There are a bunch of colours to choose from, but I settled on something more neutral. I was actually wearing this bare foot with jeans, and it was a great little look. Really cute item that you can wear in fall and then again in spring and summer. Definitely worth a buy!

I added the Hamsa necklace from LaGyo at FaMESHed as well as one from Gizza that came with their recent hippie style set.

Another new item in this pic are the leaves and bokeh in the background. These are new from Bauhaus Movement and are a great item if you're a little bit Photoshop shy. They come with poses included but you can also rez them and they're just perfect for decor and photos. You can find them at the Xiasumi School Festival.

Hope everyone has a great weekend!

A few months ago, Oakley and I did a spring lingerie pic and it’s one of those rare pictures that I look back on and think yea, I still like that, since I’m of course my own worst critic. Anyway, I thought it’d be a good idea for us to do one for fall so here it is!

This new Briony lingerie set is from Blacklace and you can find it at the Sad November event that opened a couple of days ago. The big, swept back hair that I’m wearing is new from Little Bones at FaMESHed – it’s definitely a head turner!

Feed Your Faith

Feed your faith

I’m sure most people reading this are pretty aware that October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, this year in particular it feels like everyone is jumping on the pink bandwagon and while some of it hasn’t been so positive, raising awareness is never a bad thing.

Up until a couple weeks ago, breast cancer seemed like one of those terrible things that happens to other people, but not to anyone I knew and loved. Every time I’d hear about someone who knew someone who had it, I’d think how lucky my family was that we were all healthy and that nothing like that would happen to us. Right? Wrong. Two weeks ago, I received a phone call from my mother, telling me she had some bad news. She has breast cancer. At that moment, breast cancer became a very real, terrible thing – and it wasn’t just happening to a friend of a friends cousin, it was and is happening to my mum. We don’t know for sure how serious it is yet, but my mum is a nurse and pretty fastidious about checking these things, so we’re just hoping that it’s been caught early. In stage 1 there is pretty much a 100% survival rate, stage 2 – 93%. Those are good odds. If you catch it early.

I don’t really want to make this a huge post about cancer, there’s plenty of information online. I’ve pretty much convinced myself that my mum is going to be fine, since there’s nothing else I can think until we find out more next week.

I just wanted to say, ladies, check yo’ self and do it often.

I’ll Love You For A Thousand More

I'll love you for a thousand more

I’m realllllly feeling all the warm autumn colours the past few weeks, if my pictures weren’t enough of an indication. After spring, autumn is by far my favourite season. I guess I just like those transition months. It’s been a while since I took a picture with my bff4life, Harper, so I asked her yesterday if she was up for it, and of course she said yes, how could she turn me down!

Pretty sure I’ve written before about how much I love this girl, but I’ll say it again. All the sweet, cute, mushy, cheesy things you can imagine – that’s how I feel about her. I’m so thankful to have her as part of my life.

Anyway, onto the stuff in the picture, which I know is what you’re really reading for! Pixicat released these sweaters as part of the small Ferosh collection a couple of weeks ago, but today she’s put 2 colours – the orange that I’m wearing and a yellow – out for FLF. Don’t miss out on the chance to grab such a great bargain and pay a visit!

We’re both wearing hair that you can find at the Mystic Realms Faire, mine is by Tableau Vivant and Harper’s is from Exile. I love the flow of both of them and that they are long with hairs without being BIG, if that makes sense? Don’t get me wrong, I love a bit of volume, but not always into big cartoony or princessy looking hair. The loose curls and waves on the Tableau Vivant are just perfect, I do love curly hair in SL, probably coz my RL curly hair will never look that perfect!

The shoes on me are from Reign and are out at The Season’s Story. I love casual flats like these, they’re so easy to wear day to day. I expect if you see me around the grid just in the day time, that I’d be wearing these. A perfect inventory staple.

Cheeky Pea have released a few items lately, this autumn cosy is out at The Mens Dept and comes in several different prints, as well as both an adult and PG version. There’s also a set from them at The Season’s Story, which I used a few decor pieces from like the tall pumpkin stacks, acorn lights and the lamp ladder.

Anyway, that’s me off for the day. Hope everyone has a fantastic weekend and I’ll be back soon!

Down South In New Orleans

Down South In New Orleans

The Fantasy Collective started a new round a few days ago, featuring a New Orleans theme. It’s a great dress up theme and plenty of dark, indulgent items. I’m wearing this hat and hair from Tableau Vivant and lounging around on the set from Kalopsia that you can pick up there. I love the trumpet wall piece and the piano bar is a great unique, decor piece for any room.

I’m also wearing the Oakley shoes from Just Design that were out at Uber for their first round which started on the 31st of July, you have approx 1-2 days to go grab these still if you don’t have them already! I seriously have barely taken them off for the past month and they’ve become a firm favourite for me.

Make sure you visit before it’s too late!
