Hi all! You’ve seen a billion posts now about Skin Fair 2013, I am here to over saturate the feeds a bit more with it, because I want to, and it made me feel pretty <3
Snow Rabbit has this gorgeous mesh head out. Now I love mesh heads… I don’t wear them an awful lot because I do agree with a portion of people that say “you all look the same”… it doesn’t bother me looking the same as someone else if I look pretty and the looking the same is well made and textured, it makes for a different to normal look anyway, even if you do end up looking generic, but I was so impressed with Snow Rabbit’s head that I couldn’t help myself! If you want to read a super thorough walkthrough about Nea, you should go and read Gogo’s post here.
Nea comes in a “Head Package” with the following options: S@R Hybrid Avatar Head Nea, S@R Hybrid Avatar HUD Nea, S@R Hybrid Avatar Mini-HUD Nea, S@R Skin in Milky White, Natural White, Natural Beige, Bronze, and Dark (both reg and cleavage included), S@R Eyes, S@R Mesh Alpha (with eye, without eye), S@R Tears (by NODe+), S@R Mesh Shape (all fairly small), S@R Face Light (you won’t really need this but it’s there!). The first thing you will note is that all the options are changable via the HUD, so it’s important you don’t lose that! You can change everything from eye colour to skin tone, lipstick to eyeshadow, moles or no moles, more than one mole! tears on of off… there are tons of options. I would like to see more in the future as the lipgloss is very neutral, but it’s a really great start. You will find Nea blinks, cries (if you attached the tear node) and moves her mouth at her own will, and it can be tricky to catch a photo how you’d like, I admit I didn’t read the Q&A so there may well be a way to freeze the face you want! I think she is a SUPER cute face, with enough options to begin with, but hopefully with room for many additions! I feel so pretty! I LOVE NEA MORE THAN MY OWN FACE.. for now.
LOGO has some new additions for the Sadie Mesh Head out at SF13 and they’re glittery and gorgeous! So easy to add the sets to your existing HUD, you just drag and drop then use! I have showcased below all the options, but as you can tell you can mix and match all 16 Lips and Shadows however you want, and along with the makeup options already there, so you have soooo many countless and seemingly endless combos to make!
Whether you fancy some glittery emerald lips with a pink smudged eye, or neutral sparkly lips with some deep smokey liner, I think you’ll find you have a lot of options here that will satisfy your needs! I haven’t showcased the Sadie Head in all her glory but she is a step up from the Chloe Head as you can mix and match expressions and she comes with ears and hair bases and all sorts of wonderous goodies! I also love the hi resolution eyes you can get, they make it look all that much more realistic and some of them are just gorgeous, wish i could get them just as mesh eyes!! With so many options to choose from including nose, cheeks, eyes, lashes and makeups, Sadie makes for a gorgeous addition to any mesh lovers collection, yes, that’s right, i’m the weirdo with the Head Collection *sinister grin*
Finally we have two new hairs from Truth! Both are gorgeous and lovely and belong on my head and look just SWELL! He’s a guy that knows how to please the ladies, or so I hear *smirky grin*. You can choose from a side pony with little clip, or a more whimsical over the eye style that looks perfect with a dreamy face!

Hi guys, happy weekend! I bring you gifts! Well, no technically I bring you details of stuff. But you get the gist! We will kick it off with a bit of Blueberry.
This picture shoes an array of legwarmers that you can now get from Blueberry! The Kimmy Legwarmers come in all the options you see above, and they come WITH the sneakers too! They’re a longer legwarmer, and they fit just beautifully, they come in standard sizes, so you can find your size and just pop them on. You can wear them with or without the sneakers that come with, obviously they are a perfect fit with them, if you choose your own shoes you may find the fit isn’t as snug, but it’s a pretty generic looking bottom, so they should fit over most things! The sneakers also come colour change, a few of the options shown in the picture, a few not. The shorts I am wearing are also from Blueberry and make your tush look faboooo!
Also from Blueberry a quick LoTD picture! This is the Pisi Dress and Jacket in Beige/Black paired with the Poula Leather Boots! The Dress comes in various colours, I opted for an earthy tone with a classic Black Jacket, but you can buy different colours and mix and match to your hearts content. As I opted for an “earthy” look, you also get the Beige Boots, but these are also available in an array of colours and are just yummy. Such well made items come out of the Blueberry workshop, it makes me weep with joy!
Finally here are some pictures that relate to Fashion for Life, which kicks off today! Pin Me Down has various sets available, some are to be purchased regularly, some are gacha items… but there is definitely a little something for everyone, whether you’re looking for a bit of a fantasy look with facial stripes and hollow looking cheeks (the tattoo is a set, but also comes with the options as singles too!) or a bit of colour for your eyes, they are some simple, yet effective pieces of art and you will want to be buying them! All proceeds go to FFL, so even more reason, eh!?
The skin I am wearing in the LoTD picture is the Ghost skin from Pink Fuel, and the skin in the PMD pictures is new from Glam Affair and is one of the Candy Skins, there are four available and they are all stunning and based on Amberly! The hair is also new and is from Tableau Vivant! Such a pretty, short style in a huge amount of colours! YUMMY! OH! The eyes are from IKON!

But not a homecoming queen. Today I decided to go for something a little different. A lot of the time I have ideas in my head that I just can’t get out! I suck at stuff, but I am digging water pictures, so you get another of those. SORRY! (click through for bigger pics)
The Dreamer Bed comes from the very talented Tya Fallingbridge, and comes in both Black and White for this months FaMESHed… you can also get the candleholders you see, in 3 different heights. It’s a really dreamy looking bed, hence the name, with hanging stars and crisp looking linen sheets. There are various couples poses and a few singles too, even one reading a book that rezzes when you swap to it, so you don’t have to worry about losing pesky props! Such a gorgeous, well made bed, that is perfect for the teen or adult and with both Black and White options, you can fit it into almost any decor too! YAY! My feet are from GOS and my pose is from Frooti!
Also from FaMESHed is this Slip Dress from Cracked Mirror and Hair from Exile! The Dress comes in various colours and is a sexy little number. It’s definitely going to go more in my undercrackers folder than my dress one, but I think you could happily get away with either. It’s a gorgeous Satin looking number with a slit side and will help you out while you are in your gorgeous new bed, nudge nudge, wink wink. The hair is, as usual, divine from Exile! A bit of a bigger, slightly swept longer style this time, perfection is a word that I love to use when it’s deserved, and this is well and truly deserved! The skin I am wearing is one of the Pink Fuel Arcade Skins!!! I didn’t have as many goes as I’d like on the machine, as I started to get doubles, but this is the “Ghost” one, and it’s hauntingly beautiful and it’s only $L100 per play!!!! HUZZAH!
For this final, close up picture, I am showing you the Twisted Hunt 2013 item from Songbird! You get this gorgeous pair of swirly mesh eyes, and the makeup swirl too! It makes for a bit of a different look, and a change from the norm and it’s a hunt gift!! How much more could you ask for, hmmm?

I am going to be super busy this weekend in RL, but I did want to try and blog something before I left, so I bring you lot a selection of goodies from various events! Hope you all have a great weekend <3
First we have items from a fistful of events here. The DIGS Bench/Seat is currently out for FLF, so if you want to snap up a bargain, you have to do it today! It comes with a plethora of poses and is suitably neutral, to fit into any environment! I thought instead of wearing the Global Domination Masks from HANDverk, I’d put them up as wall decoration because you can mod them, I think it looks great! The Masks come in Red and Blue and both with or without Feathers too, they do make great decor. Also worn is a dress from My Attic, but more about that below.
These eyemakeups are just 12 of the 24 available from this months Zodiac Event from MONS. There are 6 from one pack, and 6 from another, and you can also get a pack of lipsticks there too. I really love how striking MONS makeups are, and the stripey ones are just excellent! So vibrant and pretty. It’s a great event, as usual, this round. I hope to get back and blog some more of it before it’s over, but you should definitely check it out.
Finally the dress I was talking about above, you can see 6 of the many available from DCNY for this months My Attic, a relatively short event, but an awesome one! I need to get over there and buy all the things! These are only $L95 while they are at My Attic, so get there before the 28th to snap up a bargain, but never fear they will be in store at full price after that, so they aren’t exclusive to the event! They come in a range of styles, mostly, I would say, Spice Girl inspired and they are gorgeous. You can also wear the skirt/top separately, so that’s a nice bonus, mix and match away. Each dress comes with a Microphone prop too, although here I am using some of Adorkables poses available there, they also come with a prop and as you can see, some great poses.
Also worn in the picture is a Glam Affair skin, and Gos Boutique shoes, finished off with IKON eyes. I hope you go and and check these events out, they’re great!

Stuff, I have new stuff!!
A quick LoTD today, one where I wanted to showcase my new top and boots! The top was part of last weeks FLF and if you didn’t get it, I’m sure it’ll be out full price soon, if it already isn’t! I picked up UK, USA and Spain, obviously I am wearing the UK one here. The boots are new for L’Accessories from Lassitude and Ennui and are called “Lazy Boots”! A flat, slouchy pair of leathery goodness for your peepies! They come in various colours, but I thought Black would compliment my outfit more. The necklace I am wearing from MONS is also new for L’Accessories and is a Lions Head, very detailed mesh item that you can have in Bronze, Silver and Gold! Matching Earrings and Rings available too
Also worn is a new Exile hair, and some H.O.F shorts along with a Glam Affair – Amberly skin, more about the hair below!
Glam Affair have released a bunch of goodies lately, I recently blogged their Zoya Headdress, now it’s the turn for the Mesh Liners! I am not a girl that thinks to accessorize often, because I feel I don’t do it well. Mesh Liners are one of those things I dread, because I can never get them to look as great as everyone else! These are super easy to fit though and are a nice addition to your facial unit. I prefer to think of them as lashes rather than eyeliner, and pretty ones at that! There are various styles available, with just 8 shown below ranging from gem studded all over, a lil flick of gem in the corner, pearls and actual studs!! Definitely must check these out, really great for pictures!
Finally, Exile released three new hairs! Little Talks, Stay the Night and Don’t Wait! I don’t think I have a fave, because they’re all so lovely! But I am quite partial to Stay the Night, the way it just lays over your shoulder and is a bit poofy on top, like sexy bedhead… but a lot better looking. But whether you want a long ponyish style, the tidy bedhead, or a simple long style… you are going to find all you need at Exile! If you don’t like this release (hi, you will), you are bound to looooove something else there for sure!

Everyone is excited.. or are they?
I gotta admit I am feeling rather bah humbug this year, tomorrow when gifts are opened and faces are happy though, I know I’ll feel differently! But what better to treat yourself to in SL than a nice new dress, some new hair and a new skin?? If only it were that easy in RL, right? Well this dress is available from Sysys for the Capricorn round of Zodiac, it’s available in a handful of colours but I chose a festive red! It’s a cute little dress that can be worn as dress or top, if you feel it’s too short! The hair is another 12 Days of Christmas hair from Ploom and comes with and without the coontail option, but I rather like it with, makes for a bit of a change, no? The skin is Al Vulo and is from TDR Fusion, Lyala is cute and gorgeous and comes with eyes and lashes too (not shown), and is a total steal! YAY!
I decided to have a bit of a play with makeup today, with my new Al Vulo skin, I paired the MONS makeups available from TDR Fusion too. MONS has two sets out, lipsticks and eyeshadows. I was immediately drawn to the lips as they look so luscious and kissable, they come in some kooky colours but where is the fun in trying things on if you don’t get to look a bit different to the norm?! I think my fave might actually be the Green, so cute!
The eyeshadows available are quite heavy and glittery as you can see, so definitely not for every day wear, unless this is what you wear every day, then yay! good job. The sparkles are heavy, and there is a little splash of colour in the corners to co-ordinate outfits with. HUZZAH!

It’s nearly christmas, a time of glitter and sparkles and the colour red and gold and silver and ALL that good stuff.
Out at My Attic atm are these gorgeous gold sparkly jeans from Tutti Frutti! They are such a nice fit and the texturing of the lil sparkles/sequins just gives you that gorgeous Christmas boost! These are actually some of my fave jeans and I think I’ll be scooting on over to Tutti Frutti to top up my mesh jean collection, they have such a wide range of textures and styles, all bright and beautiful! To top off the sparkly look I put on my Epic Kawaii Glitter Glam Kicks in Gold! These mesh bad boys are SO cute that you might want to die, they come with additional “bling” too, actual sparkies! CUTE! Sakide have a couple of Merry Christmas Sweaters out, I popped my red one on and thought yesssssss, my look is nearly complete, so I finished off with one of the 12 Days of Christmas Ploom hairs, my Belleza Noel skin from FLF and Izzies Glitter Nails… I still didn’t feel completely right so I popped on over to Insufferable Dastard and picked up some new eyes and found this cute lipstick set!
The lipsticks come in a pack for all under $L100 and you get 6 colours in both gloss and matte, reaaaaaallly cute! I also bought a pack of the new eyes and I am wearing each of the 3 versions you get in the pic above too, you may have to view larger tho! That’s my Christmas Eve Eve look, yay! OH! The pose is from aDORKable and is one of the freebie 25 Days of Poses giveaway! YAY!

For every one thing I blog, I tend to get 100 more in my inventory with all the sales, new releases, offer days.. it’s manic! So I always tend to blog a fair few things at a time, this time there is a large array of products for you to peruse!
There are three new stunning styles from Exile today, all avec hats of some kind! We have Raspberry Beret, Against the Music and A Winter’s Tale, I cannot express how much I fell in love with these instantly, my fave has to be A Winter’s Tale though with it’s slouchy beanie. All hats are colour change, all you have to do is hover over the tip of your cute lil button nose and press and voila! As if by magic. These styles fit just fine with mesh too! I am wearing the Cynful offering for F R O S T, the oversized sweater! A really gorgeous sweater, or dress if you like in an array of colours, the more earthy tones I chose for these pictures tho.
LaRoo opened to the public and had two new awesome sets of shoes for us! I chose my absolute fave today to show you, because I own similar boots in RL that I squee’d when I saw them in the shops, I have a think for biker boots with studs, what can I say? These boots are mesh but not rigged, so you can change the size, which I found handy because I found the generic size they came in a bit small for my footsies! They come in an array of tasty colours, I’ve donned one on each foot for a bit of a run through of what colours you can find, whether you want traditional black, burnt orange, moss green or a plum purple amongst many others, these boots are just lovely. The texturing is amazing, the meshwork impeccable, and they just ooooooze sex!
Blueberry have also had a bit of a release! This mesh knotted jacket – Racel is just lovely. It comes in all the colours below, in standard sizes and is perfect paired with jeans, or slacks, or a skirt or whatever else may take your fancy. It’s a simple jacket with a wrap around belt tied in a knot giving it that little bit of a centerpiece look, something to avert the eyes from the cleavage, if you’re a bit like me and don’t wear a shirt underneath! Either way I know I love it, classic with a sexy twist.. or knot. The hair I am wearing in this picture is the Exile hair for Together for Sway, available in two packs this hair is a must for anyone that wants to help AND look awesome!
Also from Blueberry are these Marley pants, available in a majority of the colours you see above, I thought they would match the jacket but I was wrong! This big bow got in the way, but who am I to complain when they look so lovely?! Each set of colour comes in various sizes and each size has three colours of belt, as you can see below. They look sexy from the back, classy from the front, and the bow just gives it an extra kick of awesome.
Not only do Exile have hair out at Together for Sway, so does MINA! You may remember this hair/mask combo from Cinema, well.. it’s out for TFS with exclusive and new mask colours, as well as a special hair colour pack, or at least I believe it’s special! I don’t recall these carnival colours before, unless I am blind which I could well be, so don’t hold me to that. I love the unicorny purple/pink mix, but they’re all pretty! Izzie has a special set of FUYU lipsticks out, 5 of which can be seen below, and Olive have this gorgeous necklace with snowflake detailing, available in various metals.
Finally just a LoTD I threw together with a few of my new items, a staple and fave of mine (the fri.day jeans) and Izzie’s beautiful skin, which is featured throughout the post, from Collabor88! I do love Izzie, she makes me look so pretty! Make sure you check out both her Frostbite Skins at C88, you won’t be disappointed!

or.. ON WITH HER HEAD!
LOGO released this GORGEOUS mesh head and I gotta say, for a person that NEVER tweaks her face to fit anything EVER, this is just GORGEOUS. I don’t really care that I don’t look like “me” I look pretty and fine and unnnnfff I kinda wanna do my own face right now.
First off before you think OMG it’s going to cost the earth, it costs precisely $L2499 for ALL of what you see, with excemption of a few addon HUDS for extra makeups, which are all under $L250!! I think it’s a fookin’ steal!
Let’s take a look at the tones:
You can get Alabaster, Bloom, Almond, Amber, Cocoa and you get soooo many options in each pack you get 2 Mesh Heads (with 0 or 16 body fat), Eyes & Teeth Mesh, Head Alpha, Mesh Settings Storage, Shape (with 0 or 16 body fat) and tons of extra tattoo layers with different nipples and ALL sorts. I chose to wear my own shape with the head, and it fit just fine, no problems at all, but you can always swap your own digits to the LOGO shape provided if you’re worried, or swap the digits from the neck area to a copy of your shape… just have a fiddle!
There are tons of makeup options, and if you purchase the add-on HUDS (pictured below) you get a ton more! I haven’t done all of them, only a few, but you get choices of blush, lipsticks, eyeshadows, lashes and eyebrows, so it’s a really versatile head too! You can get from perky peaches to darker chocolate browns, smokey eyes to just a lick of eyeliner and no blush to rosy cheeks. I absolutely LOVE that this has eyelash options too, you might not notice unless you click through for the bigger picture but there are barely there, just a hint of mascara ones, to fuller, thicker ones. ALSO… you can change the nose on the head too! If you don’t like the default one (the big picture in the middle is how the head is when you put it on) so you can have a huuuuge play and fall in love.
Not only do you get the pleasure of mixing and matching makeups, you can make expressions! YEP! 12 of them! I LOVE IT! Look at my face… first i’m all innocent, then i’m a bit surprised, then i’m giving you the stink eye… wait no no I AM SURPRISED AND SHOCKED, now i’m laughing… I had so much fun with these, they are going to be super useful in pictures if I can’t quite get the look I want and like I said above I am HAPPY to have this as my face, I don’t care if it’s all over the grid god dammit, I WILL PUT MY OWN SPIN ON IT! I know people are going to be like “but you look like everyone else”, I don’t think it’s true, I’ve seen pictures of people in it, that I think I differ from and Gogo blogged about it too and I think we look slightly different!
These are the “extra” HUDs you can buy, it gives you a rough idea of what you can expect… or as I like to call it. TONS OF EFFIN FUN! I am so in love with this release it’s just not funny, thank you LOGO for doing such awesomeness!!!
