New fashion brand – Miss Chelsea!

Miss C Promo 2

It’s been a long time coming but I’m excited to finally announce the launch of a new fashion brand that I’ve been collaborating on with Dave Freeman of JD. I did make an announcement on Flickr a couple of days ago, but with everything finalised I decided to make it more formal with a post!

This is something that we’ve been working on in our spare time for several months and even with bumps and RL getting in the way, we’ve managed to pull it together. We’re holding a blogger preview for members of the SL Blogger Support group in world, that will be from 9am SLT today, for 24 hours. The official opening is 10am SLT on Friday 3rd April. We’re also having an open invite launch party on Friday at 6pm SLT, so feel free to join us!

I’m sure you’ll hear more from me tomorrow, when we officially open, and I hope to see you all there!

The Red Lady

The Red Lady

The Fantasy Collective starts a new round tomorrow, which is where you can find this dark themed roses and chain headpiece by Orsini Sun. Fantasy and role play geared events like these are always great to explore and pick up unusual, unique items in that you might not otherwise find in the big, mainstream events. Definitely worth a visit!

Have you picked up your Valentines gift from Glam Affair yet? There’s two skins in the pack, I’m wearing the Valentines 01, which I love, love! The group has a small fee to enter (it was something like 30L when I joined, not sure of the exact cost now but I know it’s not much!) and then you can pick these up for free.

Yes I’m wearing the Tyr hair from Truth again, sue me, I love it! I also added the gorgeous Jewelled Dragon’s Egg necklace from Maxi Gossamer to give the finishing touch to my red lady.

So much exciting new goodness at C88 this round. I was even up early enough to go as soon as it opened which is the first time in a long time for me, of course the sim crashed after 20 minutes before I could even rezz properly or buy anything, but that’s all part of the fun eh?

Anyway after a couple of more successful trips, I managed to grab a few things. First of all this vest from Ison, I’m so in love with it. I think now I should’ve fatpacked it because I know I’m gonna end up buying at least 2 or 3 more different colours. It’s just a perfect casual add on to any outfit, and is not too hard to fit over other mesh.

I can’t get enough of this Dreadlow hair from Tableau Vivant either. It’s so different to what I’m used to and even though I’ve seen some great pictures of people really rocking other dreads in SL, they never seemed to suit me. I think the hat makes the difference with this one though, which of course comes with a HUD to texture change. If dreads aren’t your thing then there’s a regular hair version too.

One of the main reasons I was so excited about this round was that Maitreya was participating. Like any good SL fashion lover, I’m a huge fan of theirs so to seem them being a part of something like Collab just about made my day. The leggings I’m wearing were one of their releases, as well as an over sized coat which I’m sure will find it’s way onto my blog some time this week.

Finally, my background is just multiple copies of the new Philby TV from Seven Emporium who were making a guest appearance at C88 too. It’s a great vintage decor piece, comes with several different texture screens to choose from, as well as varying levels of noise and if that wasn’t enough there’s a ton of matching items available too. Perfect for creating your cosy, winter, indoor setting.

Just A Little

Just A Little

Hi guys! Just very quickly have this new hair from Baiastice to show you today. It’s one of four new styles they released for Hair Fair. I love the sleekness and the little bun at the back, and I think it looks great in white.

Obviously I’m not wearing much but also new is this necklace and earrings set from Zibska that you can find at the new round of L’accessoires which opened today. It’s a very big bold statement piece and I really didn’t feel like I needed to wear anything else with it lol, but I love it!

Happy Monday to all!

Round Up

Round Up

My RL is hectic this week so I decided to kill a couple of birds with one stone in this pic!

First I wanted to show you some beautiful new stuffs that Drift have released over the last week or so. Another fab new bikini to add to their collection, and this amazing wrap skirt which you can find at TDR Fusion. I’m so in love with this wrap, it’s perfect for throwing on over your swimsuit and going for a stroll on the beach.

I also wanted to make a second entry for the Truth model competition and to remind you guys that it ends soon! It closes on the 1st June, so if you were thinking of entering and haven’t yet then you only have a couple of days left! You can find all the rules and how to enter here in the Flickr group. I really would make sure you give them a look first because there are a LOT of entries so far and lots of them seem to not have realised that one of the rules is that you must be wearing hair purchased from the NEW Truth store.

Good luck again to all the entries!


P.S. I randomly put on a really old skin and changed my shape for this pic, I was just in one of those moods for something different I think!

Introducing Sonam from Jalwa

Introducing Sonam from Jalwa

Most people know that Chandra Masala is the creator behind Bilo, well now Chandra has created a new brand for her skin range called Jalwa and her first release under this brand name is the Sonam skin. These skins are only available on the marketplace for the moment, you can find them here, and I definitely recommend trying them out!

Now I’m one of those people who will wear the same skin and/or brand for months and months. Even though I like to mix up the style of my outfits, skins are a tough one for me because if it’s too different from what I’m used to then it doesn’t feel like “me”. Having said that, taking and editing so many pictures of myself can take it’s toll and there are many days I’ll just feel like “Oh, it’s that face again.”

This Sonam skin would be much too big of a change for me personally to make it my every day skin, but will I mix it up for taking pictures and blogging? Most definitely! I love the tones on these skins, there are other brands in world that I keep trying out but always end up feeling like they have too much red in them or are too desaturated so that they look greyish. In my opinion, Chandra nailed it with the skin tones.

The above picture was obviously edited for the sake of making pretty, since that’s my favourite part of blogging, and I’m wearing layers for freckles etc. But here’s some snaps of the au natural variety so that you can see a couple of tones, it actually has 5 tones but I couldn’t do all of them today because time is short for me on a Friday!

Sonam Tones

The blonde and red eyebrows are quite dark, that won’t be a problem for me personally, I’ve mentioned before that I always like darker brows never mind what colour hair I’m wearing, but I know some people do prefer the fairer look when they’re going for blonde or red. I think that the body could do with a little more work on the texturing but the face seems spot on to me and I wasn’t a fan of the cleavage option, I felt like it needed some more shading or something (idk, I’m not a skin maker but it needed something), then again I can’t remember the last time I wore a cleavage version so that won’t stop me from wearing them.

The skins also have the matching appliers for the SLink mesh hands and feet which are amaaaaazing! I really do like this first release and love the face. The progress Chandra has made in her work is incredible to me, I can’t wait to see more Jalwa releases in the future!

Anyway that’s me done for the week, I’ll be back soooooon,

Pure (and the seven SL facts meme)

Amberly Photo Contest - Coral Lacey Entry 02

Just a quickie today, but this is my second entry to the Glam Affair Amberly contest so I thought I’d post it, coz it also features this fab new Marisol hair that Truth released today!

Also I wanted to give some credit to Miss Strawberry Singh whose recent tutorial on adding highlights and shadows with adjustment layers was a huge help for these pictures. If you haven’t seen it already I highly recommend it!

Berry also started the Seven SL Facts meme yesterday, so I thought I’d add that for the hell of it.

1. I struggle to keep my inventory neat. It’s still not organised and my accessories folder is the worst, which is why I tend to reuse the same ones for blog posts, coz they’re the only ones I can find!

2. I have had the same SL “mum” for 6 years. Once she talked me into making a kid avie on an alt, I lasted 2 days and she magically grew up overnight. Not getting in each others faces every day has been the key to our longevity!

3. I don’t like going to clubs in SL unless it’s night time in RL for me, it just doesn’t feel right!

4. I originally joined SL back in 2006 because my RL dad kept reading about SL entrepeuners in the media, (think Anshe Chung) so he told me to look into it. My first job was as a stripper – I don’t think that was what he had in mind. I lasted about 3 weeks.

5. Besides Coral who is my main, I have 16 other avies o.O is that a lot? I think most of them look like noobs still, about 3 are updated and the rest are probably wearing LAQ skins from 2008. I never use them, I think I just like making names up.

6. I RP’d in Gor for 5 years, I read 23 of the books for it over that time so that I had a good feel for the genre. I never tried any other RP in SL because I’m nervous around groups of people I don’t know and also some of the genres have such rich backgrounds I just don’t know if I have the patience to research it all again.

7. I’m very self concious so I hate talking in local chat with groups larger than maybe 4 or 5 people, especially if they are people I don’t know.

That’s it for today, don’t forget only a couple of days left to enter the Amberly comp!
