Glam Affair Katra Blogger Contest

Just another quickie portrait picture for you today. I missed the chance to blog this skin when it was released last month for Skin Fair, but you can now find the gorgeous Katra in the Glam Affair main store. There are some seriously amazing make up options with this skin, so if you didn’t try it out before now’s your chance!

I’ve added these new Sarrah earrings from Random Matter, which are out at Uber. I love big earrings so these are an easy case of win to me!

Ain’t No Sunshine

.ain't no sunshine

Alright, I know it’s been a while since I did a proper blog post. So here’s one right now! Did you know Lelutka released 3 mesh heads on Wednesday? If you’ve paid any kind of attention to blogs, Flickr or Plurk over the past week then of course you did! Well I had to give them a go to, so here I am sporting Leda.

Glam Affair worked alongside Lelutka as far as skin basics and also skin appliers, the other great news is that Maitreya was along for some of it too. So now the Maitreya Lara mesh body, and the Lelutka mesh heads will all match perfectly! I cannot be more thrilled that 3 of my most favourite brands on the grid are collaborating on these, and honestly, I’d love for them to work on even more together.

One of the best things about mesh heads (in my opinion) is the ability to use SL’s lighting and shadows all over the place, without the light hitting it at weird angles and highlighting unflattering parts (usually around the mouth area, especially on my shape where it’s quite pronounced). It can be a lot of bother in pictures, and usually I end up having to take a few different ones and layering them, just so that my face doesn’t look messed up. No need for that with a mesh head though. Just flawless light and shadows every time.

If you want to look picture perfect, I definitely recommend them. Make sure you have a good play with the demos and look out for more skin creators making appliers in the future!

Today I worked on a double portrait picture with my friend Kalli (big thank you to her for posing with me), to show you guys the recently released Sophie skin from Glam Affair. You can find this pretty face at The Chapter Four, available in 2 tones (Asia and Jamaica) and 4 different make ups!

We’re also wearing the new Sheena hair from Lelutka which is a group FREEBIE, as part of the introduction to their updates. I don’t know about you but I practically peed myself with excitement when I saw Minnu Palen’s update on Flickr a few days ago. As a long time fan of the brand, big changes like this are always exciting. They have now released 4 new styles, including Sheena as a freebie. The new HUD system is very simple to use, and I was sooo happy to see some awesome roots versions now available. Make sure you go check them out!

Someone told me there’s a girl out there

I’m back with another portrait after a few days off. I’ve been enjoying trying out different things with my pictures lately, so this is more of an editorial style shot. I have zero idea of whether anyone is gonna like this picture, since I think it’s vastly different to anything I’ve done before. But I like it and that’s what counts right? So I’m sort of sorry/not sorry about that!

Anyway, I’m wearing a special version of Belleza’s Mae skin that I blogged recently, this one you can find at the With Love event, with several new, pretty and pink make ups, perfect for Valentines day.

I’ve added a few new things from LaGyo too. The flowers around me are a mixture of headpieces and accessories she’s made recently. The two brighter pink ones are out at With Love, and the more pastel coloured flowers were add ons for last month’s C88. The hat, pearl earrings and necklace can all be found from LaGyo too, at February’s Collabor88 which recently began. LaGyo is one of those stores that always makes unique and interesting accessories. Great for standing out a little bit in pictures.

Finally I’m wearing a new hair from Little Bones that you can grab at FaMESHed. I love her tucked behind the ear styles lately, gonna need more of them!

For someone who confessed yesterday to being a proper pixel prude, I’ve realised that this week I haven’t really blogged a whole deal of clothes. I must just be in some kind of mood the last few days!

So today I just really wanted to show you this Celeste skin from Belleza, out now at Uber. There’s a ton of really unique make up options available to fit the celestial theme, but I went with 01, which is something more day to day for this shot. I always love the noses on Belleza skins, it’s one my favourite features. Miss Shyla’s work on Celeste is nothing but the usual high standard and I look forward to being able to take more shots in her.

I added the unique, Bubble Necklace from Glam Affair, also out at Uber, just so I wasn’t totally naked. It made all the difference. It’s a gorgeous statement piece, would look great with a LBD, which is exactly how I plan to wear it! When I’m clothed of course.

I’m feelin’ electric tonight

.i'm feelin' electric tonight

Uber started a new round this weekend, with it’s Celestial theme. So many great items this round, I picked out a couple for this post.

First of all this hair from Little Bones, I can’t get enough of. Seriously in love. Loose waves and the tucked behind the ear look are a great combo. I also love the partings that Nova has added to a lot of her hairs lately, such a small thing but makes a big difference in styles. I’d really love to see more of these waves on the grid too!

I think this headpiece and necklace set is one of my favourite releases from Zibska in a while. You can’t see the necklace awesomely coz I had to wear this hair, but I like the way some of the gems are just trickling out from beneath it. Overall it’s a super pretty piece that will class up an outfit in an instant.

Finally I’m wearing the new Ellie skin from Glam Affair. There are always debates and comments about Glam Affair skins looking the same, I know that because I wear them regularly there’s a good chance I’ll be seen as just a biased fan girl, but it’s not the case. If you don’t try on every Glam Affair skin on your own shape, then honestly I don’t know how you can make that call. Because as someone who DOES do that, I can tell you the skins are vastly different. Particularly the most recent releases. I’ve been wearing Sia II since it was released a couple of months ago, but I couldn’t resist Ellie. When I tried it on I was honestly blown away at how different I looked. I’ve included an unedited, raw shot for a side by side comparison, before I adjusted my shape to fit Ellie better for the picture above.

GA Comparison

I had to change my eye shape, make them wider and yet smaller at the same time. My eyes are usually pretty narrow anyway, but with Ellie it didn’t look right. I adore the nose and lips on this skin, but I’m so used to seeing myself in Sia II now, that I don’t know if I can make such a big change for every day use. Still, I think I look cute, even if I do say so myself.

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!
