Lately I've been, I've been losing sleep

I love this Tori dress from Baiastice, the silky texture and the lace, is it a dress, is it lingerie? Well I decided to dress it down by throwing on an over sized cardigan and boots.

The cardigan you can find from Eaters Coma at The Season’s Story, there are 4 colours available and each come with a cropped, turtle neck sweater beneath, that is colour changeable via a HUD. It’s a pretty good deal! I bought 2 colours and honestly, I might go back for the other 2 coz over sized cardi’s are one of my most favourite things and I know I’ll wear them to death. Not only that but it’s another of those cool, hands in pockets dealios. Great for pics!

I’m wearing the Punisher boots from Candydoll, which you can also find at The Season’s Story, in 3 exclusive colours/textures. I added the Lucy socks from JD too, these actually came from the Lucy shoes but you can wear them with almost every type of boot too, since they have an alpha selector on the HUD.

Finally from The Season’s Story is this messy hair style from Moon. It’s my new favourite. Not taking it off.

Even The Summer Ends

Even Summer Has To End

Hope everyone is having a great start to their week, I have to say that I most definitely am after getting a preview of the Belleza mesh body! I’m pictured here with Kalli, both wearing the new Venus body, which will be available soon at Belleza.

We’ve been getting teasers of this body since May, and I feel like I’ve waited a life time for it. I’ve never owned mesh body parts besides hands and feet before. I never had a phat azz, or a pair of lola’s coz I never felt they were natural enough shapes. When the Wowmeh body was released, I read a couple of blog reviews and while they were generally good, there were still a lot of flaws and I never really felt like that would be the answer to the mesh body situation. There was The Shops mesh project, freebie body, but again I never felt like that was going to be what I wanted – besides the fact that I don’t like to shop there anyway. The SLink physique of course was the next big step for mesh bodies, however after I watched a friend demo it, I was left disappointed. I felt like it just had too boyish a figure for my taste. So I sat and waited patiently for Belleza.

Well I don’t feel disappointed let me tell ya. This body is everything I wanted it to be and more. It has curves and is still customiseable with a simple edit appearance, thanks to the fitted mesh system.
One of it’s best features is the fact that you can change your hand gestures and foot height with the simple click of the HUD. It is SLink compatible so if you’re attached to those hands and feet you can wear them, but of course if you wear the Belleza version, you’ll be absolutely seamless.

I know I said last week that I don’t take many NSFW pictures but I legit cannot stop staring at my boobs. Ask any of my friends in SL and they’ll tell you that if we’re standing around styling outfits, my avatar is the only one always wearing bra and panties. WELL NOT ANY MORE! I love boobs, I do. I really love them, and these are just amazing. I have a feeling that I’ll be looking for any reason to show them off for the next few weeks!

As yet there is no exact release date for the Belleza Venus body, there have been rumours that it could be this coming Wednesday but this has not been officially confirmed. I know that the Belleza team are working hard to make sure that the item is as close to perfect as can be, before it’s release, so please be patient! It’ll be worth the wait.

Hiiii all! I know my posts have been few and far between of late, but I’m hoping that this is the week I’m gonna make a come back.

There’s a simple reason I haven’t been around as much and the short version is that about 3 weeks ago I stopped smoking in RL. I know that it’s a good thing in the long run, but for now everything that was routine and normal for me…isn’t. I won’t bore you with a whole lot of detail but yea. It’s hard for me to do things that I would’ve smoked during or after, so my PC time has been a lot less than usual.

Anyway! On to stuff you’re actually here to read! First of all I wanna talk about my new shoes! These are the new Cult Stilettos from Just Design, that are add ons to their tip toe feet. Note that is to the JD MyFeet, they will NOT work with SLink feet. I like that JD have given another option for creators to make shoes around, as well as for people who didn’t necessarily like the shape of the SLink feet, which can sometimes appear very wide. Also with JD selling add ons at TDR Fusion for 70Ls a pair, you can’t really go wrong! The nude version that I’m wearing here can be picked up at TDR Fusion for a couple more days, but there is also a release in the main store of 15 other colours, which are priced at 295Ls each. Also they come with this awesome half sock add on, which can be worn with the shoe or alone. Plus you get the usual sock versions with the MyFeet too! So many options for such a great price. Oh and if you’re worried about tinting the feet, then you don’t need to! Just Design have produced not just a line of presets, but special textures to match the most popular skin brands too. Other than the SLink appliers which are made by the skin creators themselves, you can’t get a more flawless match in presets, than the one JD offers.

Also new are these cool steam punk style wings by Atomic Faery for The Fantasy Collective, which opened last week. They have a stained glass effect which I noticed changed colour depending on the windlight setting/angle I used, which was very cool!

I love this Penelope bed by MudHoney that came out a couple of weeks ago at The Garden event. Black, white and purple are one of my favourite bedroom colour schemes so this Glam version is right up my alley, but there are a ton of other colour options available as well as a kids version! There’s another week or so on this event, don’t forget to check it out if you haven’t already.

So that’s me for today, hopefully I’ll be back around more often!

Only 2 more sleeps! This is gonna be my last post for a few days, since I’ll be taking off like everyone else to spend time with my family and friends, so I wanted to do something fun.

I love this bow head piece that’s a new group gift from Just Design, you can pick it up for free in both red and green at the main store, it’s juts a perfect festive accessory for pics or dressing up. I was also happy to find this body suit hidden away in my inventory, I knew it would come in handy when I bought it 50 million years ago! (ok, not that long, but truly must’ve been about 18 months!) It was part of a bunny girl set that Hucci released last year, I’m sure you can still find it in their main store.

I’m wearing another one of Truth’s latest releases from last week as well, this cute Dove ponytail. I really like the volume on the top of the hair coz it gives it kind of a vintage feel. And yes, I know I used these MudHoney table and chairs in my last post too, but I like it ok?!

Finally, I want to mention the pose I’m using. It’s from a store called Corpus, by Diconay Boa. I only found them a month or so ago, via Diconay’s Flickr, but I loved the look of them, especially the lounge series, and thought they seemed really natural. So off I went to check out the store. When I got there, I was pretty disappointed to find all her latest poses were priced at 100Ls each. It’s not a great deal of money I know, but I really couldn’t justify spending that much on a single static pose, when there were so many other great stores out there offering them between 25-50L. I did pick up a pack of her older poses though, which had been reduced to something like 200 poses for 300Ls, since I thought that was a great deal and I’ve used a few of them recently. Then last night I decided I wanted a sitting pose for this pic and after fruitlessly searching a few stores for one that I really liked, I remembered Corpus had some nice ones and even though they were pricey maybe I’d buy one, just coz I had had enough of shopping by now. Anyway, in I went and was thrilled to see that the prices were now reduced to 50Ls per pose, so I picked up more than one and I was so happy with the way this pose turned out for this picture. I really recommend anyone who’s into taking pictures checking out this store if you want to find some great, natural poses, I’ll definitely be going back for more.

Before I disappear into festive celebrations, I also just want to say a little thank you my readers and followers for your support and interest in my rambling and pics over the past year, I hope you’ve found it useful and maybe at times my pictures gave you a smile. I still really enjoy blogging and sharing things with you, and I’m looking forward to a lot more in 2014!

Merry Christmas, happy holidays and all that good stuff!

Don't Wake Me During Summer

Last year the formal gowns and party dresses that Baiastice released for the holidays were hugely popular and this year Sissy has added 2 great new releases to that line. I’m wearing the new Grace dress which is a must have party number. Perfect for all your socializing over the next couple of weeks!

Truth came back with a bang this week too, bringing 6 great new releases after his brief absence. Of course I’m wearing the sleek new Coral do, with side swept bangs. I added a new headpiece form MiWardrobe at L’accessoires, just to glam it up for this look.

Anyway I think that’s me done for the week, hope everyone enjoys their weekend!

I debated about posting this picture for a little while, since it was never taken for the purpose of blogging. But I decided since it’s the holidays that I’d share something with you guys that was a little bit more personal.

This photo isn’t about new releases, the styling, or even the decor. It’s just myself and 3 people who mean the world to me in SL, making a little family that I couldn’t be without.

I don’t do NSFW posts very often, but there’s something about these chain style necklaces that Zibska creates that just makes me wanna ditch half my clothes! This new one is a unisex item that you can find at The Mens Dept, it’s great for creating a sexy look that’s still classy too.

The hat I’m wearing is also a new item at The Mens Dept by Remarkable Oblivion. I’ve seen a ton of pics already with it on Flickr so I’m sure it’s nothing new to you, but it’s another really well made and original piece of mesh from them and it’s pretty damn cool too.

The couch and chandeliers fitted the mood perfectly for this picture, they’re both new items from MudHoney who are a guest at this months round of Collaborate. The couch however, is not your usual couch. It comes with 3 different pieces, chair, corner and ottoman, so you can mix and match them to whichever configuration you like. I used 2 chair pieces and an ottoman one for this pic, to create a chaise style couch.

Finally the feet I’m wearing are a preview of JD’s MyFeet which are going to be released in a couple of days at Shoetopia! This is going to be a great, popular event and I know I’m not the only person who is busting with excitement for it. Friday can’t come soon enough!
