I have to admit something to you, readers (or accidental stumblers)… My name is Willis, and I… I am a skybox hoarder.
I can’t resist homes and skyboxes, it doesn’t matter if I need them, it doesn’t matter if they’re free, cheap, expensive, black, white, yellow, brown, blue… come with a garden, come furnished, empty, dark, dank, colorful or bright. I JUST LOVE THEM! Two super skyboxes were released over the last week or so, and I am here to SQUEE over them.
The first is the loft from Elate! The features of this industrial type beauty include a modern fireplace with a whole wall full of windows, a loft style bedroom/office area at the top of the stairs, a small, walled room with just arch access that you can use as a little hideaway, built in, soft lighting and sooo much detail from the pipes down to the fireplace, the radiator to the brick walls. It is a beauty. It’s a 64 prim equivalent which is really good for such a detailed piece of art! I really REALLY dig it, it can be a mancave, a love nest, a modern hangout, a capsule of LOVE… brighten it up, grunge it out or just… admire it. You will LOVE it!
Also released recently was this skybox from HANDverk! You can choose from single or double Longchamp skybox, I am showcasing the single in this picture below (you can view bigger if you click and follow thru to flickr). It’s got a lovely, classy feel to it, it’s bright and airy with lights included that sparkle and shine and are lovely and remind me of posh houses or foyers where you look and go “mustn’t break that, don’t swing from it, nonononono”. The single is equivalent to 16 prims and double 31 prims, both are big enough to be comfy, but you may need the double if you’d like to spread out a bit. Either way it’s a classy, elegant box perfect for pictures, living or just hosting a fabulous do!

Yep, we’re doing this thing SL Fashion Week STYLE, YO!
I finally got my ass on over there to pick up the shoes i’d been eyeing up, as well as the jewellery! I ended up going on a bit of a spree. Full credits are below but here is my blurb: I love the shoes from BSD! A store I think I’ll be visiting very often. The mesh is original and creative, and it comes with a nifty swifty little hud that allows you to change both skintone and nail polish really quickly! It seems i’m turning into something of a shoe hoarder! :O. The dress is from AUTRES and compliments the shoes wonderfully, I got it in black but there were a handful more colours to choose from, the shoes, by the way, came in a billionty (ok a few less than that) choices, yayyy! My fave pieces of the whole ensemble have to be the Mr Me Stashing Set from Olive, you can buy it individually in gold or silver, but I just got the fatpack, the gems are colour change and it comes with bracelet, necklace and ring. WEEEE!
Tuli is BACK BABY! YEAHHH with a new main store on the brand spankin new and redone Cupcakes sim, I am sooo happy she is! Here you can see Helena in Powder with all the skins plus a variation of lip glosses/mattes that are available, but not all because there are 30!!! Four skins are available, Helena is just one of them which we saw a sneak peek of at The Dressing Room! I always loved Tuli Skins because they are well texured, realistic looking without being scary and make you look mature enough to not be a teenager but young enough to not be old.. if that makes sense. There are a variety of tones available, with more on the way AND appliers, so I hear! A stunning comeback, Tuli… we are glad to have you back <3

Yep, I finally went on over to Gos Boutique and I got SHOES.. and feet.
These are all raw shots from SL, just all bundled together, to show you how truely beautiful they look just as they come! To my UTTER ashtonishment, I fell totally in love with every pair of the shoes (although I didn’t save one for the close ups, but its in the main pic!! I LOGGED OUT, SORRY!) and I was blown away by that because I don’t normally *do* shoes. I’m not your typical SQUEEE OMGGG SHOES type of girl, never have been in RL or SL, but I had to get one pair of each and then I had to tear myself away and TP away before I relented and got Fatpacks, sadly that is not within my budget but oh my god, I wish it were, and its RARE that I say that about anything these days, let alone shoes!
There were four pairs of shoes released, and two pairs of feet. I didn’t buy the arched feet… yet… but like I said I did buy one of each pair of shoe. The detailing on them is amazeballs and the best thing of all is that they come with a Skin Matching HUD with already over 200 presets and counting in it! I don’t mind matching skin but it’s SO much easier if you can just skim a database instead of having to tweak and get it just right. To my utter delight the tone and skin I was wearing actually matched the tone the shoe came in, but I still played around and I was really impressed. A lot of things have skin matching HUDS, but this was really neat, really simple, clean and well done.
The feet are also great, very lifelike and the toes are fantastic, I have a thing about the toes on mesh feet, they gotta be good or they gotta go home! I have nothing but good things to say about EVERYTHING! The cute lil pouffe in the top picture is also for sale, a collab between Gos and OOO Studios and it comes in tons of colours with over 3 pages of poses! YAY!
I can see a lot of trips back to GOS in my future, but I might have to find me a sugar daddy first, the prices are NOT unreasonable for the items… they come in at $L795 a pair, just under $5Lk for a fatpack and the feet were under $L600, all very reasonably priced but there were so many options that I wanted them ALL.. so I had to be sensible and say NO WILLIS, THEY AREN’T LIMITED EDITION.. GO BACK IN A FEW DAYS *unsureface*.
So, I don’t take fancypants pics (well I try but fail) but hopefully this simple looking post with show you just how awesome they look without all the bangs and whistles in a picture, but I know i’ll be using them in my practise pictures to try and better myself, for sure.

Cuteeeeeeesy look today!
My LoTD took me to a new level today! I layered things. LAYERED THINGS! You’d think a veteran like myself (hi, it’s my 9th Rezday soon) I’d have learnt the art of layering and embraced it, but I lack simple skills sometimes, however… I knew what I wanted to wear with this so I branched out. SOMEONE GIVE ME A GOLD STAR.
I saw this COCO Sweater on the feeds and was like MINE MINE MINE, so I went and got it and then accidently wore my Ricielli Bandage Dress from TDR under it, and found it actually looked good! So I just put on a larger version of the sweater over the dress and the look was born. HUZZAH!
I’m also wearing one of the new My Ugly Dorothy skins – Vivian. You can see all the makeups below in the Burly tone. I love how cute MUD Skins look on me, slightly different from my norm, but totally works too.

I didn’t know that Evian was part of Egoisme, or that they did skins, so this whole post has been a lesson for me, WAKE UP WILLIS, ITS 2013!!!
Petra is the latest female skin from Evian and is a skin with sharp features! She looks freshfaced with pouty lips and is available in a variety of tones, as seen above. Also with this release you get the option of the new “Vividtone” tattoo layer, which allows you to change the colour of the skin with just the click of two of a button, but more about Vividtone below.
Each Petra pack has 12 skins, 3 cleavages, 3 different eyebrows options and a no eyebrows option too, you get fatpack options with extras too, if you want to fatpack it! You also get various makeup options available to you including eyeshadow, lip stain and blush, I have just shown a couple of mix and matches for you below:
The Vividtone layer comes on a tattoo with different brows/cleavages and you wear it over the skin and use it like you would any tattoo that is editable, you open it up and change the hue, you can see below that I’ve had a play and found a few “regular” tones and some fantasy ones too. Whether you just want to tint it slightly to make yourself a bit more peachy keen, or you want to give yourself a slight suntan this will help! If you want to be a bright pink fairy or a marine blue mermaid.. this will help! Wanna be zombie green? YOU GOT IT! YAY! A world of options for you to play with here.

A few new goodies for you today, thrown in with a LoTD!
Today sees a very simple LoTD with really just a sweater, so I decided to add What Next’s Lazy Sunday items in the background too! These are available today for a reduced cost and you can put them out a singles, or one big linked party of prints, very classy and a great addition to ANY room decor! The Sweater from NiNight Creations I am wearing is actually an old Lazy Sunday item. Again, it is a simple piece of clothing, just a thick knit hoodie really, but being able to wear it like a dress is a bonus, so I don’t have to fit any jeans or leggings under it YAY! I am also wearing one of the three new Truth Hairs. This is the cutsey of the lot, Essie… a pig tail style that’s simple, cute and makes me want to suck on a lollipop!
Worn above, and below is one of the Al Vulo TDR Fusion Skins, you can find three makeups there all in this sultry Chocolate tone, very pretty. Below I showcase just one of the colours of the new mesh Zaara Jewellery line! The Atiriya Jewellery set is a gorgeous work of art available in 6 stone options (including both gold and silver metals) and the bonus is you can buy each piece individually or get a discounted set as well as a huuuuuge mega fatpack!
You can see the love and care that has gone into creating these items, so intricate and detailed, so beautiful and whimsical! I love them. I have opted to show the Turquoise colour as it’s one of my fave colours, which will be YOUR fave?

Happy Sunday, folks <3

Yes! Another Circa post, I am trying to play CATCH UP!
I had to blog these, because they are from The Retreat and they are all currently $L50, so you have to go and get them before it’s too late!!! *PANICFACE*. I picked up all of the items, but my inventory seems to have eaten one of them, so you will see three of the items available here, the other one.. well… you won’t!
First we have a gorgeous skybox, and while the items aren’t mesh they are still super high quality and sooooo lovely, they aren’t huge in prims either. It’s a really spacious little number, perfect for a little hideaway with princess pink walls and a tiny little garden out the front, by the window. The lanterns also flickr on and off, it’s a really nice little touch to a perfect little pretty skybox!
Also available are these lovely items below. The Sakura Blossom Table and “De Lovely” Candlestick. Both items come with 2 in a pack and look at the table! SO PRETTY and it matches the skybox perfectly. The candlestick is really sweet, but I wish it was in a pink colour so it matched my new box and table, but hey… it’s lovely just the way it is!
