Carry me home tonight

.carry me home tonight

I know this coat from Aphorism has been all over Flickr for a couple of weeks, since it was released at The Season’s Story, but I swear I had been planning to do this picture before today! The problem I had was needing a new lingerie set to go with it. That’s one thing I absolutely lack in SL.

Any of my friends will attest to the fact that I’m one of the biggest prudes they know when it comes to taking my pixel clothes off, so I just really don’t ever find the need for tons of undies. Unless an alpha is failing me of course! Anyway, I bumped into someone a couple of days ago who told me about this new set from Elymode. It comes with all your applier layers (I’m wearing the Maitreya Lara version) as well as standard system layers, and best of all? It’s FREE. Ok, it’s free to group members but the group is only 125L to join, which you’d probably pay more for the set anyway. It’s a pretty sweet and sexy set, perfect for mesh body lovers.

Necklace and hair from Random Matter and Little Bones respectively, both new releases for Uber were perfect additions to this look. As well as the Mon Dieu tattoo from Space Mermaid, which now has a bunch of tattoos on appliers for the Maitreya body.

Feet don’t fail me now

.feet don't fail me now

Have a quick LOTD for you all today, and a reminder that you only have a few days to pick items up at FaMESHed and Uber! Uber is changing it’s start date as of this month, so the new opening day will be the 25th of every month. That means you only have 2 more days before the current round is closed, so make sure you visit and pick up Reign’s fabulous Avanti bag.

I’m wearing the recent Coco leather jacket that’s still out for a few days at FaMESHed, as well as the Zoe skirt from Emery. Both of these stores are easily in my top 5 for clothes in SL, based on quality and style, so pairing them together is always an easy decision.

I’m also wearing JD’s Sky stilettos from January’s FaMESHed as well, which, yes, I know I blogged last week. BUT, like I said then, they’re really a staple item. One of the great things about JD shoes is that you can always mix and match the mesh socks they make with them too.

Finally I’m wearing the new scarf from Pixicat out at The Seasons Story. I’m a firm believer than you can never have too many scarves, so this is a great addition to my ever growing collection.

The Arcade Photography Contest - Coral Lacey

This’ll be my last post of 2014 so I thought I’d make it a festive one! I’ve used a bunch of items from December’s Arcade round, as well as Christmassy goodies out at TLC. There’s far too much newness for me to talk about, and all of it is pretty amaze but noteworthy mentionables definitely include this beautiful tree from Anc Ltd at TLC’s The Garden, as well as the fun Pixicat onesies available still at The Arcade. There’s a lot going on in this pic, so don’t forget you can click the image to see it bigger on Flickr!

I’m off now for RL vacation and family time, I’ll be back in January with some exciting news that I’ll finally be able to share with you.

I hope everyone enjoys the holidays and has a happy new year. See you in 2015!

I have a LOTD for you guys which I just can’t get enough of. This hair from Clawtooth…in my eyes, it couldn’t be more perfect. The tousled locks and the scarf that wraps around them makes it super appealing to me and great for pictures. I’m also beyond excited with the updates to Clawtooths blondes! I admit before that I never full felt like they sat right on me, but with the “Bodacious blondes” pack now available, I know I’ll be buying more and more.

Also, yay for new fur jackets! I am so happy that Birdy released one at C88 this round and I don’t mind admitting that I hope other designers follow suit soon too. I’m not one of those people who thinks I only need one of something and like to see a variety of similiar items even. Same applies for things like jeans! I’ll never have enough, which is why it was great to see these new ones released from Lumiere at FaMESHed last week.

My turtle neck top is a recent release from the new brand Seul, out now for this months round of Uber. It’s long in the back and cropped in the front, making for a stylish and unique look. To finish this whole outfit off, I added the new, adorable Mina heels from Reign, and the Tassel bag from Zenith, out at Anybody and The Arcade respectively.

Snow Day

C88 opened it’s doors today to a fabulously cosy round for December. I’m wearing the new, oversized cape from Pixicat that you can pick up there, along with it’s fur hood. This matched perfectly with the Snowdrift hair from Tableau Vivant, which has got to be one of this months must have hair purchases. It’s a great style to wear cosied up with a sweater and jeans, or dressed up for a party night. Either way you’ll get plenty of use out of it!

LaGyo released two gorgeous collections for C88 as well, this adorable bow headband and the faux fur clutch are part of them. There are a ton of other great little accessories too, all to help you get in that festive spirit!

I’m also wearing the new skinny, ripped jeans from Emery and the Navajaro fringe boots from JD, both of which are winter staples that you can grab at this month’s round of FaMESHed.

Christmas Puddin’

Christmas Puddin'

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

Don't Wake Me During Summer

I seem to remember that last year I didn’t take many winter or festive photos, so now I’m making up for it. That’s my excuse anyway. Plus I’m really enjoying all the cool, bright shades – I think it suits the type of photo I usually like to take.

So even though it’s nearly the holidays, Glam Affair and Tableau Vivant seem to be working over time with a slew of new items available at winter themed events. I’m wearing the super pretty and feminine Snowfall hairstyle from Tableau Vivant that you can find at the Frost event, plus their headpiece from the Snow Queen hair that’s out at The Seraphim Social. These fancy eyelashes from Glam Affair can be picked up there too. The skin is also a new Glam Affair release that you can find with 3 different make up options at the Frost event in Tableau Vivants booth.

Finally I’m wearing a new set of bracers and necklace from Enfant Terrible, that you can pick up at We ❤ RP. They're a great accessory, perfect for a snow queen!
