LoTD – Zombies are Refined Too

Well, this was yesterdays LoTD but I got sidetracked after doing all the pics and stuff. SOZ. Anyway, this is a nice refined look with a Wilis twist, huzzah!

LoTD - Zombies are Refined Too

As you can see events are still coming in by the 100′s, they always do, and I am a sucker for them, I love events! 5 of my items can be found at events, so who am I to knock them?! My skin is from the Skin Fair and is the Deesses Lauren skin, more about that below. My dress and hair are both from My Attic, SySy provided us with a gorgeous, simple little number in an array of colours, perfect for a formal occasion but still showing some leg, and the hair is from KOY, a new brand from Steve Cartier of Ploom Poses fame! Great job for a first time go too! I love it.

LoTD - Zombies are Refined Too - Up Close and Personal

My jewellery is from the new round of The Liaison Collaborative and is from Izzie’s, available in various metals/colours, but I chose black – this gorgeous butterfly set is stunning, with earrings, necklace, rings and bracelets (not shown) it’s definitely one for the oncoming summer weather.   My nail appliers from Dark Passion are a RARE from the Luck of the Irish Gacha! So many gorgeous nails there to win, and just a hint of colour in these on the tips, so gorgeous.  My piece de resistance are the shoes, of course.  With my refined, ladylike look BOOM.. zombie shoes.  Cute Poison provides us with two pairs, spiked and not spiked with zombie face and brain adorning them.   Get those babies on and stomp all over town, yo.

Deesees - Lauren @ Skin Fair 2014

My skin, Lauren, from Deesses is so prettttyyy!  The lips are a little not my shape, but that is fine because the rest makes up for it!   A smooth, gorgeous skin available in many colours, this one being the palest (well I think!) that comes with appliers of all kinds and ALL IN ONE, PRAISE BE!   You can get the skin at the Skin Fair where you will also find 2 packs of 15 lipsticks, one for light skins, one for dark, I have shown a selection above.   They both work very well on the opposite tones they’re meant for, just a different hue!

A Clockwork Spiral

So! A new event in town, A Clockwork Spiral, and it’s steampunk central!    I am not a huge steampunk fan and i am also not very knowledgeable about it, but I do find it unique, and i find the items wonderful! I love to look, just haven’t a clue how to dress, so I got some help!

A Clockwork Spiral - Look of the Day

The outfit is made up of separate items, all available from the lovely Voshie over at Genre!   The jacket, tee and skirt all come in various colours of meshy goodness (well apart from the tee, that’s on a clothing layer) and I opted for the greeny one.   Pinstripes and sass, that’s what these items are all about, so gorgeous!   You don’t have to wear them together, you can mix and match it up to your little hearts content, that is always a bonus.    I love the frilly look of the skirt, paired with the shorter hair it makes me feel feminine but RAWR!

A Clockwork Spiral - Headshot

Speaking of the hair, that’s from Discord Designs, the best dread retailer on the grid!    It comes with the goggles attached and you can click to change the colour, I stuck with green as you know, made sense considering my outfit colour!  Such a gorgeous hair, perfect unisex style too, as with most of the entire Discord Designs store.   My skin is from FAKE and is over at the SL Fashion Week for now, it comes in various tones and brow options, including some skins with freckles and with or without cleavage.  Unique eye markings and soft pouty lips! WOOT!   My eyes were blogged yesterdays and are one of the many IKON eyes over at The Boutique!   Pose is from !bang

I don’t have an SLURL for A Clockwork Spiral yet, as SL is being a butt, but I will update asap on the SLURL page <3

Ram it in!

Yeah.. no, sorry about that title, I was trying to be clever about this post, because it’s mainly about HCE’s Zodiac! A new Aries round is upon us and I am exciiiiited!

LoTD - Aries Style

The Aries round of Zodiac brings us so many gorgeous goodies, I could barely contain myself.  I’ll try and not be TOO super chatty, but give you all the info you need.   Firstly the pose I am using is one from !Bang… they have two pose sets out for this round of Zodiac, both very cute and each with 5 poses.    I’m also wearing a most divine corset from Perception, it’s a really vivid blurple kind of colour with constellations and stars and oh it’s so cute!   It comes in many size options and even comes with additional/optional lace top which gives it that extra bit of sexyness.  Of course I was naked from the waist down but figured you guys didn’t want to see my lady garden, so I popped on a pair of Erratic Leather Pants!    The hair is from Ploom and they look like cute little ram horns, aren’t they ADORABLE?!  The daisies are optional and just give that extra girly look, I wanted to fatpack but I had to slap my hands! More about the other stuff below.

Essences @ Zodiac

The skin is from Essences and is as gorgeous as ever.    You get a choice of 3 makeups in 3 tones and all with additional goodies like appliers, brows etc.   Essences skins are looking so great, I’ve been a fan of the brand for a very long time and Inka does a wonderful job in making such cute and gorgeous skins.   These are all very pure and natural looking and look great with IKON eyes, I find they really bring out the gorgeousness of the skin, but then I may be biased :D

Adore & Abhor @ Zodiac

ADORE AND ABHOR YOU GUYS… SUPPLIED THESE! AREN’T THEY CUTE?!   They come in gacha form, with the white diamond one in the middle being the rare, they are huggeable little sheeples!   I can’t even with how adorable they are, they come scripted so you automatically hug them and hold them in your arm and they look like they have little cupcakes on their head and omgggg their eyes and their little dangly arms and legs and hooves and things.  You can also get a pack for FLF, those are the four shown below.   Never to be sold again!  GET THEM!

FLF from Adore & Abhor

Finally a couple of annoucements.  This gorgeous picture taken by Isla Gealach of Cheeky Pea is a teaser for the upcoming “The Garden” event from The Liaison Collaborative!   The Boutique (which is still going on) has proven to be one of the most lovely events with so many wonderful goodies, I do love a good event and these girls seem to have that in hand.   So just a sneaky peek of the gorgeous build!

Coming Soon to The Liaison Collaborative...

Finally Erratic has moved just across to Le Look and are having a 50% off sale so you make sure you find it!  How awesome is that.  A store full of goodies at half price. WHY ARE YOU STILL HERE?!

Oh well why not?

I saw many a reference to a 7 Random Facts MEME… so here I am with mine! You won’t get credits for the picture because it’s a random of me and Bunsis, but if you want to know anything, just hollah <3

Vimto Moment

1.

I’ve been in SL for 9 years this May, NINE!!  I often wonder if that’s a good or bad achievement.  I wouldn’t change signing up though, I’ve made some rad friends over the years.

2.

I’m very sensitive, I may joke around and pretend that I don’t mind things, but I do.   I don’t have much confidence in RL or SL, and I get really upset and genuinely hurt by people that are mean, not just to me, but just mean spirited in general. I’ve recently been *very* upset about something that probably wouldn’t bother anybody else half as much, but I just try to be happy that I’m a good person, who tries her best to be just that, in both worlds.

3.

I was once in a publication about SL, with an Inventory Sorting article!  My Inventory is now a complete shambles and I am ashamed of it, I can’t even bring myself to sort it for more than 10 minutes at a time.

4.

I don’t rate my fashion sense or my pictures at all.  Probably not something a blogger should admit! But I try my hardest to make a good, clear, clean picture.. so I just do my thing, the way I want to and occasionally try to step outside my comfort zone

5.

I am not very socially comfortable.  People often assume because you can be quite sociable on other platforms, like Plurk, or Flickr, that you must have oodles of friends.  I do have friends, but we very rarely see each other.  Infact when the picture above was taken, Madi was probably the first person i’d physically seen in SL for over a week!  I’m a hermit.  I don’t often like it but it is what it is.

6.

I don’t like to cause a fuss, whether it’s an undelivered item or a double purchase.  I would probably just count it as an accidental loss instead of asking about it, unless it was like $L20000000 lindens.  

7.

Blogging is really all I do in SL, I haven’t got a home (although I do rez them for pictures! and loveeee to collect them), and I don’t really just ‘Hang Out’, I tend to log in, do my thing, log out.   I go through phases, at times I want to log in daily and just tinker in around with looks, sometimes I don’t want to log in for days at a time, although I do if I have something to blog.

See, I’m a very boring, over sensitive person.  How inane!  I loved reading other peoples though :)

O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree…

O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree!

DIGS have some awesome Christmas stuff out just in time for the holidays.  This Northelyn Christmas Tree comes in Silver, Gold and Red!   Of course the colours are the ornaments and the little rug.  It comes with control for the lights as well so you can turn them from blinking to static, and back again!  I think that’s a really lovely touch and I love that about lights in RL, the blinking!  Also released are these cute little Solveig Candle Holders!  They come in a set of 7 and are all scripted with a one click on and off function to turn the realistic flames on and off, as you can see they give off a lovely glow!  Such cute miniature houses!  The skybox I am standing in was the last Lazy Sunday offering from Cheeky Pea and is a really cute little space with baked on shadows!

Of course some of my baubles were too big for the tree, that’s because Luna of Bang! made her balls massive! *insert troll face here*.   This cute little set of poses come with a mesh oversized bauble as a prop, I had fun making goofy faces trying to ram it into the tree!    You may have seen my coat and boots all over teh feeds already, they are from G-Field and are new out and are just SPLENDID!  They have a ton of options you can change and fiddle with and they both come in an array of colours.  I picked up pink and black for the coat!   They are changed by HUD too, so no million pieces of clothing in your inventory, yay!    Also worn is the upcoming hair from MINA for My Attic at the Deck and let me tell you she is BEAUTIFUL! A neat, ladylike updo in all the usual colours complete with resize options on the HUD, these blunt cut bangs are just perfect!

New @ Bang!

Culture Clash at Around The World

Around The World, an event inspired by all the cultures and fashions on our fair planet, is in full swing and packed full of unusual treats. Each region has its own section but, in the spirit of the melting pot that Second Life has become, I have mixed and matched my nationalities to my heart’s content.

Around The World

Above is the Antique Pakistani Furniture available from Senzafine and, to match its abundance of rich colours, the Tango Dress from Has Been. Posing items being, of course, in abundance at Around The World, I’m using one of the Strength mini-set poses from !bang.

Around The World

A little more mellow but no less inviting, the Zen Garden Skybox from Ziau features your very own Zen sandbox and original poetry for your contemplative moments. I’m wearing the Seattle dress from Geometry with the Aussie Ugg Boots by Intrepid and playing about with the African Child and Malkia posing sets from Motionless, which come with a handy HUD version that I’m sure will be every photographer’s delight.

Around The World

For those of us with bulging virtual closets and a hunger for more, you’ll have no trouble keeping your eyes on the prize at Around The World. Above you can see the Fur Poncho on offer from Orquidea, the Say It! New York cropped sweater from Apple May and the My Faithful shirt from Intrepid, all worn with Intrepid’s Patriot Jeans.

These are but a small fraction of the goodies on offer. Around The World has quite the variety, covet-worthy quality and a celebration of the diversity around our world – which, it turns out, can actually be enjoyed all at once. The doors are open until November 29 – grab your shopping cart and go have fun!

A Concerto of Awesome

That title really doesn’t work, but it’s there, so you’ll have to deal with it!

This gorgeous Piano pose prop is one of !bang’s Cinema item and I am just now getting around to getting it out of my inventory, I thought it would look perfect with my new dress from 22769 and I couldn’t resist trying to take a pic a bit out of my comfort zone AKA: not in my skybox LOL!  So I popped it down on my decking and took in the beautiful surroundings, sadly I had to do this all alone *foreveraloneteardrop*, but this Piano is built for two baby!  It comes with a variety of poses, and they work for couples too!  Lovely jubbly.

!bang @ Cinema and stuffies!

I couldn’t justify just leaving that picture without getting a few better snaps of my outfit and ensemble!   So… this is the 22469 dress for Zodiac, it comes in four different variations and I fell in LOVE with it as soon as I saw it, it’s so gorgeous and different! I am not a huge “dressy” person, but this… this is fab.  I paired it with the new booties available from Decoy, also a Zodiac item, you’ll find a bit more about them at the bottom of the blog!    I haven’t taken off my Pink Fuel skin (well I have, but I soon put it back on) from Costume Ball yet.. IT IS SO EFFIN GORGEOUS! I CANNOT DEAL! and I squee’d earlier when Hely posted a teaser of the Costume Ball hair so I have that on too!

22769 @ Zodiac & Costume Ball Stuffies

The hair comes in two variations, with and without mask, in all the usual colours and gorgeousness.   You also get a solitary mask to wear with the without version, but I wanted a clean shot of my face.   An absolutely STUNNING hair, and the mask is colour change so you can match it to anything really and it’s glittery. YOU HEAR ME PEEPS? GLITTERY!!!  A fantabulous updo for any occasion, but I really do think it tops this look off perfectly.

Ploom @ Costume Ball

The booties from Decoy are some stunning pieces of meshwork, they really are! I am amazed more and more each day by what can be done with mesh, and these are no exception!  Highly detailed and stunning, they come in three colour choices: Red, Brown and Black, each colour pair has two sipper choices: Regular and Zodiac.  The only thing I would change about these shoes, is to have an option of gold or silver zipper detail and studs, I am not a huge gold fan, but that is the most miniscule of detailing and definitely nothing to put me off them! NO!

LoTD – 22/10/12

Just a simple LoTD for this post, I feel kinda.. summery in this, which is odd considering it’s now Autumn going on Winter but THERE YOU HAVE IT, the joy of SL!

I knew before I even put this look together that I had to wear the new High Rise Skinny Jeans from The Secret Store, they are available in several colours, but I fell in love with Mint, Green and Yellow are my favs and these are just lovely!  The badonkadonk on them is also amazing, but I’ll leave you to find that out for yourself.

I, then, of course, needed a top that fit with High Rise Mesh Jeans! I went to my old buddy staple top for these occasions from Tee*fy, one of my most fav tops EVAH.   I knew I wanted to wear the new Mina Hat/Hair that is currently available at My Attic too, a gorgeous style with a big floppy hat,  and that went just wonderfully with the Hodgepodge Satchel from Evolve.

LoTD - 22/10/12

So, I got myself half a look!  To finish it I wore this gorgeous Starfish Choker that will be available real soon from the lovely Caelan! She’s been working hard and making jewellery and this piece is just divine, I fell in love with it and was having a bad day and she gifted it to me! I was sooooOoooOooo touched, lovely thought, ty Cae <3!

My skin is from Lara Hurley and is the Joy skin that is currently available for FAIR only!  I chose to wear the Pale but it’s available in three tones, and each tone has a handful of makeups!  This is pink, she’s a beauty!

To top it off I wore Izzie’s Flower Flats, my Slink hands and popped and locked it in a !bang pose!

The Autumn Bodyguard

So a few weeks ago the delectable Harvest Denzo set a challenge to blog with someone completely new, someone you have never blogged with before, I was a bit shy and was like naaah, noone would want to post with me! They’re all sooo awesome and I am a bit shy anyway, but to my surprise the lovely Katya Valeska asked me to post with her!!!  I was sooo excited and happy to be asked, I might have squeed my pants a lil!  She has a wonderful blog, an eye for style and is one of the most genuine, lovely people I have ever had the pleasure to talk with!   We really only knew each other from plurk, and I am happy to say (and I hope the feeling is mutual) that I class her a friend now and plan on bugging her constantly :D

Finally we got together and I asked what to wear and Katya simply said “comfy autumn!” so, me, being not one to conform to anything that might actually make an ounce of sense, rocked up with what you see below, to which we discovered I looked more like Katya’s bodyguard than anything else, but we had a giggle and I couldn’t stay online long as I was referring a fight over an iPad between my girls, but I had a lovely time and I’m glad she dragged me out of my skybox!

Anyway, this is my version of the pic, see Katyas post for hers!

Shhhh… It’s a secret.

When I first found the Secret Store, many moons ago (or at least a few), when it was relatively new, I srsly thought it was called The Secret Store, because it was a giant secret.. NEVER TO BE TOLD, then it dawned on me, nothing stays secret in SL for long, not even if you blog it and refuse to give up details.

It’s one of those stores that I love, but I don’t wear all the time, the type you pull out for special occasions, I don’t know why! I guess because I’m a casuals kind of girl, or naked.. that works.

The items in the store range from cute casual, to sexy smart.. and a lil of everything else in between.  The newest item that caught my eye were the new Lovable Pumps, so I worked a couple of looks in around them.

This is one of the cutest dresses I think I own, and the texturing is just divine!  It comes in various textures/colours but I opted for this super sexy peach lace one.  It goes perfectly with the stripey pair of the Lovable Pumps that I just HAD to have, I didn’t actually fatpack, but there are 4 packs to choose from and ugghhhnnnfff I want them ALL!

Secret Store - 3

Hair | Truth ** Skin | Izzies

I also wanted to try and pair them with a more casual number, so I picked out one of the new sweater dresses and popped on the new ripped tights from Erratic and slipped on the Brown pair of Lovable Pumps!  I think the look works just as well casual as it does sexy!  See, shoes for every occasion!

Then I saw, in the corner of my eye, the bag I wanted to buy ages ago and forgot to (srsly, I am rubbish, I need a list) and I was like ALSDJFALSDF MUST HAVE.  It reminds me of Monsters Inc, which is one of my all time fav kiddies films, so I purchased that while I was there and went on my way a happy bunny!

Secret Store - 1

The new Lovable Pumps are resizeable mesh, so don’t worry about them not fitting, just worry about what you’ll wear with them and which ones you’ll buy.  There is the cuuuutest pair with clouds on that I was hovering over for ages, but I just didn’t know what i’d wear them with.  Might go back and buy them naked, tbh.

Visit The Secret Store today, and wave buh bye to your lindens.
