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

It’s nearly upon us, the hunt series we all look forward to! The With Love Hunt 2012 bought to you by Chic Management begins this weekend! There are so many wonderful items from some of the best, most loved designers on the grid, as well as some fresh new faces! Here are just three looks you can get from doing it! Each item will be $L10, it’s the steal of the century!
First look consists of the most gorrrrrgeous skin from Glam Affair! It’s so soft and pretty and with beautiful blue eyes and a peachy keen lips! So kissable! I paired that with the Glow Necklace and the Somnia Dress! The necklace comes in an array of colours/metals and the dress comes in various colours too!! SOOOO CUTE!!!!
The next look is also privy to a wonderful skin! This is the pinktastic version of Alyx from Pink Fuel that will be available. She’s so cute and innocent looking with her pearly pink lips and muted pink eyeshadow! I decided that this skin was best suited to wear with one of the PaperDoll items available, I do love this dress, but I will say this is the L size I am wearing and it still makes me look quite tiny from the waist down, the boobs look great tho! Also worn with this get up is the stunning set from Cae. No picture could do the set justice, it’s so detailed and pretty, and it comes in various metals too!
Finally, another set I really couldn’t do justice, the piercing available from HoD! It comes in a selection of textures, I chose one of the special textures for the set “Tinsel”! It’s a beautiful blue/pink hue. Now, I am really rather crap at placing piercings that don’t autofit my face, but I gave it a shot! There are two parts to the piercing, the one you can see on the neckline area, and the face one, they are pretty intricate and there are several piercings in each set, but they’re so pretty!
Can’t wait to see what else will be available!!
Hii! It’s SUNDAYYY, which is the day I tend to play catch up, if I can! Lazy RL day = GET ALL THE THINGS BLOGGED!
Here is a handful for you <3
First up the Secret Store has new goodies out, as does Truth, Glam Affair and Al Vulo! What better way to show them than ALL TOGETHER! I have pieced together two looks using two of the new secret store skirts, and there are a wholllle bunch of them, all adorable and all very different!
This one I opted for has a picture of a sunset on it, cute pinks and punchy purples, this skirt could only be paired with the new Blake Shoes from Glam Affair, you can’t see how much they kick ass, but the spikes at the sides could kick your ass into next week! One of Truth’s new hairs and the new Livia skin (I blogged the full paler release already: here). This is one of three newbies from Truth, and all three are miiiiiighty fine! This is Havana. I popped on the tucked Tee*fy Tank and felt I was done.
I tried to swerve onto a totally different look with skirt two, but I think I failed. I had to wear the Emery Top I found at SWAGFEST which probably would of looked ok with the Blake Shoes, BUT.. fear not, Glam Affair also released these biker style boots complete with MOAR SPIKES! I felt that the Mayim style from Truth was the one to fit perfectly with this look and I gotta admit, I think I look kinda adorably not put together but totally put together. I love this look.
The Gambit Dress from The Plastik is the next thing I had to blog! This dress comes in 20 variations and this is just one of them! I love the vivid greens and pinks in this one and ALL of them are brightly coloured with some super funky patterns! I decided to wear the new Essences TDR skin with this one, she’s hauntingly pale and beautiful and has purple eyeshadow, so was absolutely perfect for this shot when paired with the Rachel hair from Alice Project (coloured with the Halloween HUD available from the DEAD COOL event)… Alyona is coming soon and you are going to LOVE her!
This is a close up of the face. SEE. GOING TO LOVE HER. (Also, told you I’d wear my new Cute Poison piercings I got at Swag Fest.. LOVE THEM)
Also, I have a ton of Mons Makeup to blog, there are currently items out at Zodiac, Fair and Swag Fest! The eyeshadow and lipstick below are available at Swag Fest and I think you’ll agree are just… something else! The eyes I love with the powdery look (and they come in oodles of colours) and the lips.. THE LIPS! Who doesn’t want a bit of leopard skin on their lips.. huh?? HUHHH??? Not usually something I’d probably think to wear but omg I fell in love!
As usual (hopefully) links are either linked in the post under the store/event name or can be found at the STORE LOCATIONS page, if you click on the link at the top of the blog…
be back with more.. later <3
This post is about SL Blogger Support, and the awesomeness that is the Designers Looking for Bloggers!
The SL Blogger Support website is a site full of helpful hints, tips and walkthroughs, photography tips, and general helpfulness. There is a whole section dedicated to Designers Looking for Bloggers, where designers go to put their wares forward, or at least they alert you that they are looking for bloggers, designers don’t just go there, the girls over at SLBS keep a list of anything they find and put it all in one, useful place. If you visit (the link is at the side of the page here) you will find there are handfuls of wonderful designers, both new and old, looking for bloggers all with different specifications, ways of applying and all offering different things, very generously. One of those stores is the store I am going to feature here today, following the simple rules they set:
Tea Time is a store that is reasonably new to me, I own a few bits, but the store is growing and branching out and is now looking for bloggers, I thought I’d give it a go, what have I go to lose?! The specifications for this particular blogger group invitation (possibly) is to
1. Have a high quality of editing - ok, so my pics are basic, and I edit minimally, but I always try and make sure the pictures are nice, clear and show the product well).
2. Your blog must be on a minimum of 2 feeds – I think most blogs these days are, although I know feeds have their own rules before they accept your submission.
3. Blog must be at least 6mths old or high quality if new – I don’t think this is unreasonable! Bloggers come and go, sometimes it’s nice to know, if you are going to give your items to people to showcase, that you are not just a one trick pony, I get that.
4. You have to be original – Now I am not sure I qualify for this one. I mean I am me, and that is all I can/aim to be. I might not have the most “original” look, but still, it’s worth a shot!
5. Your style should be in the style of Vintage “Tea Time” – Not entirely sure what this one means, but again, what does it hurt to try? I don’t look particularly vintage, but you can try and make a whole vintage look around yourself, if you want to!
You then must upload your images to the Tea Time Flickr Group and live in hope that you are one of the chosen 15!
So it’s as easy as that, really… I am giving it a shot, I encourage you too, too! It is disheartening when you aren’t chosen, I recently had this myself with 2 blogger “contests” I put myself forward for, I didn’t expect to win with so much awesome talent around, and my heart did sink when I didn’t get picked, but you have to dust yourself off and try again, if you so wish!
Now for the awesome items:
This mesh trenchcoat is a gorgeous Autumn piece, it comes in various colours but I chose this delectable duo of greens and rusts with leaf motif for my look. It’s something I like to think i’d wear in RL, if I could pull it off. It comes in various sizes and is just gorgeous.
This is on offer at the moment, for a limited time, for only $L50! It’s an oversized sweater in one of the most vibrant, gorgeous patterns! It comes in various sizes, as with the coat above, and I found an XS fit me best, it’s like I’m losing weight in both worlds! I think it’s cute on its own, but you could pop it over denims, leggings, or even a pair of cute shorts and tights. It makes me feel as adorable as it makes me look.
Finally, Tea Time do not only do clothing, they do bags, makeups, and jewellery! This gorgeous Vintage style beaded necklace is something I found lurking on a side wall and instantly fell in love with. I wanted to show it as plainly as possible, to not detract from the gorgeous patterns on it, so I simply popped on one of my fav Izzies skins and Elikatira hairs and wore this bad boy naked!
So there you have it. My attempt at telling you about the awesome SL Bloggers Support blog, and my shot at becoming a Tea Time blogger.
*Hairs and skin worn in posts: Elikatira, Al Vulo, Ploom and Izzies and Poses by !bang!
So, I have a billionty “LoTD” type outfits saved, and I was going to post one today, but then coldLogic released and I had to try on ALL THE THINGS. So here.. are ALL THE THINGS!
Before I start, I will say the skin I am wearing in ALL the pictures is the new skin from My Ugly Dorothy, it’s so darn tootin’ cute!! Shown here in the Salmon tone, this skin comes with 8 makeups and each makeup has teeth options too! Every skin I try from there starts to suit me better and better! I believe this may be my absolute fav from there thus far! SQUEEE!!
So, there are four pants releases and 10, count em, 10 top releases from coldLogic today, I think I’ve covered them all, but I went a bit cross eyed! I’ll work from L-R in all the pics!
First we have the Calle Jeans paired with the Barden Top! I love these denims from cL, the ass on them is great, and let’s face it, who doesn’t like a good looking ass??? They come in a variety of washes and 2 cuffs per wash/size! The top is a nice, simple layered number with a thin long sleeved tank worn under a short sleeved jumper. Cute for Autumn! We then have the Kime Jeans with the Randy top. Now I can’t lie, as much as I love the Kime Jeans they do seem to leave a large gap in between my thighs, but it might of been the poses I used and I have been futzing with my shape lately, didn’t stop me from donning them and feeling sexy tho! The Randy top is pretty much the Barden top but sans stripes, and obvs different colours!
Next we have the Calle Jeans again, with the Cook Top! This might be my fav top of the bunch, a cute small ruched sleeved cardi over a super summery cowl neck shirt… easing you into the Fall seasons gently! I likey that idea! Then we have the Cuoco Jeans with the Farrell Top! The Cuoco Jeans are just as cute as their sister Calle ones!! Shown here in a darker wash but again available in many! The Farrell Top is super warm looking, it’s a shirt under a Jumper style and the knit texture is just amazing! I feel and look so warm and cozy!
Now you find me in the Calle Jeans again (I did love them!!) and the Hughes top! This is Farrells sister, in a different pattern and different colours! The crisp white shirt with a warm and comfy jumper over the top, rolled up sleeves with the shirt cuffs back… looks so cute! Then we have the Kime Jeans again with the Stein Top! The Stein is another layered lovely… a more square look to the bottom of this one, with smaller cuffs and no collar with a stripey, wider necked jumper over the top!
Now we find the Kime Jeans with the Jansen Top! This top is a bit longer, infact it’s kind of a dress style top! V-cut neck with shirt peeking out underneath and ruched around the hips for a realistic feel, it goes perfectly with the Kime Jeans and well.. all the other Jeans!!! A shorter sleeved number, this is another one easing you into the chilly Autumn months. I then popped on the Cuoco Jeans with the Perdue top! This is the sister top to Stein, the shorter shirt underneath and the wider necked jumper on top, this time with fadey type stripes! SQUEE, I am getting excited for Autumn now!
Finally we have the Cuoco Jeans with the Rhodes shirt, a baseball style longer top underneath with a shorter shirt over the top, all in block colours for a striking look! A casual beauty, this one! Perhaps one of my fav looks I’ve saved til last, this is the Simmonds Jean paired with the Swanson top! These Jeans come in various pastel type colours, well.. not pastel but not denim! and are SOOOOO CUTE!!! The jumper is also cute, but there isn’t much I can say about it except CUTE KNIT CUTE COLOURED BLOCK STRIPEY JUMPER!!! I do love it though
And… that is all.
That’s not a very polite title, but I think I can get away with it!
Today is Truth Hawks RL bday! If you don’t already know, he makes hair
This is the wonderful picture she took of me:
So! Happy Birthday, Stinkface! Hope you have a wonderful day <3
A girl wanted a fairytale, which she pretty much got.. except for this one balloon ride… she remembers it well *insert fuzzy haze here and wavy lines and stuff*
It all started so well, a beautiful clear day, a luscious yellow balloon, the winds were low, the tide was high.. no wait… anyway.. It was date day, and a balloon ride was in store! It all started so well “look at this look at this” I squealed and pointed over the side, and turned to see that he was too busy waving to people down below…. STRIKE 1, MISTER… Ok well, not going to ruin the day, I thought, so I whipped out my camera, snapping some beautiful scenery as he carried on waving like he was queen of the world, tut. By the time i’d finished snapping, he snatched the camera off me and was taking “better” pictures than me, so as you can see I thought i’d show him and sat on the side of the balloon, well that didn’t quite pan out, as he reached to save me, we both toppled overboard and was clinging on for dear life!
Eventually, we managed to get back in the balloon, of course he was in a huff (shark week) and I was crying like a baby because my beautiful balloon day had been ruined, he’d even forgotten the champagne!!! But, eventually it turned out ok and we had a hug and a kiss and made up. AND THAT WAS THAT. or something.
Obvs, I am the worlds WORST story teller. But you can see my point. This balloon from What Next for C88 is gorgeous, it comes in various colours (all beautiful) and various poses for men and women, and as you can see it seats more than one! You get a camera and a champagne prop, but… he forgot the champagne and it’s also a vehicle! You can set it to “drift” mode and it gently drifts along, you can make it go higher and the flame actually works!! It’s adorable and soooo well done, Elika and I were playing with ours last night and squeeing and I got Gus on mine today! The pose you can see at the end of the story is from Exposeur and is NOT part of the balloon poses!
YAYY A NEW RELEASE FROM COLDLOGIC is first in the menu! A HUGE selection of 6 tops, 2 shorts and 2 skirts, all in various colours! I have mix and matched them, so let’s see if I remember which is which and what is what!
Tripp Top | Breslin Shorts ** Gertz Top | Kalili Skirt ** Kipp Top | Kalili Skirt
Ladd Top | Levy Shorts ** Wilkinson Top | Wilkinson Skirt ** Galt Top | Levy Shorts
Of course, everything – as usual, is perfect! I’ve shown the backs on two of the tops are they are not just regular backs, one has a criss cross halter style going on, the other has an intricate zip/peephole/strappy dealio going on! I absolutely LOVE the shorts, very basic and staple and perfect with casuals and more non casual alike! The skirts are the same, essentially, except one has block colouring and the other a beautiful flower detailing. The selection of tops is lovely, you can get the loose shirt style, or the tank style. Either way there is something for everyone, I am sure!
The hair I am wearing is the new style from Elikatira too, HAIR FAIR SOON OMG SQUEEE!
Also while we are on the subject of coldLogic, here is their One Voice item, along with Toki D’s donation shorts and Izzie’s donation skin with Mock lip stain! Remember to visit One Voice TODAY!
THAT IS ALL <3
