Curiously Curio!

Welp, Curio came back… and have just released another bunch of skins along with ALL THE APPLIERS.  I have seen mixed reviews on what people think of the comeback, but I for one am a HAPPY HAPPY BUNNY (or Octopus).  Here I will show you the four new skins! YAY!

chantellecollage

First is the pouty Chantelle!  Shown here in Sunburst, the mid tone of all 7 tones, and with red brows!   I wasn’t too sure of the pouty lips on me but I grew to love it pretty quick.   You can get 6 makeups and 3 extra as a megapack bonus, all shown above (and below with the other skins).   I think this may be my fave of the four releases, all very striking makeups and lovely flawless skin!

Next is Daisy shown in Pearl with Blonde brows!   Another pouty lipped beauty, this time with a nice mix of lips, but fairly light eyes, nothing too smokey or drastic, so a bit of a younger look.   I think it makes me look super cutesy, the type of girl you can take home to your mum! :P  So if anyone needs a mum date, I’m your gal!

Next is Nadia in Cloud and with Brunette brows.   These lips are not as pouty as the previous two beauties, and have a really lovely sheen to them, almost… wow.. much gloss!   A lovely mix of all makeups here, from bright, juicy lips to the more natural, heavily made up eyes to just the bare minimal.   A lovely mix!   Although I think it looks a little sad on me, but hey ho, that’s what lip sliders are for.

Finally Simone, shown in Dune and Black brows.   This face I found a little harsh on me, unsure whether it was the choice of tone, or the light eyes with the darker tone of skin or just that it looks harsh on my face!  But you do get a nice mix again, mostly earthy colours with a smidge of reds and mostly lightly done pastel eyes with a couple of darker looks.   A more mature looking skin, for sure.

So YAY! Curio is back, with boob, ass, hand and feet appliers, all the choices and looking good, imo!

Also shown are 2 new Elikatira hairs, and 2 new Exile hairs, all eyes are IKON and all poses are from Adorkable <3

I feel oh so pretty…

Hi guys! Wow what a busy week, so bogged down with RL, bad internet, and there are tons of releases!! GRRR!  Oh well, such is life!   But today I wanted to just do a quick post while I had the chance, so it’s hair and skins! WEE!

New @ Elikatira

Three new lovely hairs out at Elikatira!  So great to see one of my best friends and uber talent Elika back at the helm more often! I have missed her so… and not just cos of the awesome hair, but that helps (soz if you’re reading this <3).   She nailed this release with three hugely different styles… an asymettrical medium bob with the cutest fringe, a high double pony with a really blunt, full fringe and then the cutest updo that just squeals elegance, what more could a girl want?  Well more hair technically but let’s not get greedy.

New @ Glam Affair

Also out now from Glam Affair at the Cosmetics Fair are these 8 beauties.  They are the Mokatana skin in a light tone, all of which are just delicious.   There are a selection of looks, some more demure with a hint of colour, some with more striking looks, some reds, some pinks, lots of clear gloss and some rosey lookin’ cheeks!   All in all I couldn’t choose just one if you asked me, so good job you didn’t!

Feeling Fresh

I am feeling fresh on a Friday, whatever is happening! Well maybe I was earlier, now its now late and i’m tired :D

New @ Elikatira

Three new fantastic styles from Elikatira!  This was a nice surprise to say the very least.   Three different styles too, I always love that when stores do it!   A cute little updo with two buns atop the head, with some gorgeous bangs.   A nice over the shoulder braid with the bangs woven in, and a simple, medium length style to top it all off.   So happy to see this release, now the selfish person in me says MORE MORE MOREEE!

Glam Affair @ C88 - Jan

As promised, this is the Mokatana set currently available from Glam Affair at Collabor88.   This is the lighter of the two tones and stunning makeups!  Nothing too over the top or out there, all so serene and lovely but with a nice mix of nudes with a luscious red and warming wine thrown in.   Perfection!

Mini LoTD!

Finally just a quick look at what I was wearing, the Kirsty Top and Skirt from Baiastice at FaMESHed, they both come in a plethora of colours and the beauty is you can mix and match the colours, so go for a block colour or do something like this and mix it up.   Such stunning pieces and I love to mix and match.  My rings are from Amala and are sooooooo cute!!! They come in the options shown for both left and right hands and are resizeable too.  I always forget to wear rings as I don’t show my hands often, but omg I am in LOVE!  You need these, you do!

LoTD – SySys Style and a Little Song!

So my quest to get to Cosmetics Fair and blog what I had in mine has been scuppered for now, as it’s always full! I will get there tho, and I will blog stuffs, well technically I am blogging stuffs today BUT MORE STUFFS!

LoTD SySy Style

First we have a LoTD, this time SySys style!   These items were available at My Attic, but I beileve are now in the main store and what beautiful items they are too.   There was a huge choice of colours for both the flowing skirt with a bit of a tulip style hem, and the flowey tank top, and patterns to choose from too!   I opted for a summery yellow and green combo, mostly because it’s dull here in RL today and I wanted warming up, so Willis got her shoulders out!   Also worn in the picture is one of the new Elikatira hairs I blogged yesterday, my Swallow ring from L’Accessories that was previously blogged and this GORGEOUS necklace that Baiastice released for Collabor88′s birthday!   Such a stunning piece, there is nothing that Sissy makes that I do not adore!

LoTD SySy Style - Up Close and Personal

The skin I am wearing is the new “Song” skin from Essences, available at the Cosmetics Fair,  Song comes in the tone Light Rose and with these 7 choices of makeup!   With each skin you get an array of eyebrow options, and cleavage tattoo’s etc, the only think I find missing from the Light Rose releases are appliers, unless I am completely blind, which could well be true.  Such a lovely collection of faces!  The “Untouched” skin is the large picture you can see, and as you can tell is makeup free apart from a teeennyyy tiny bit of eyeliner.   The others are a lovely array of reds, pinks and smokey, colouful eyes!   Simply divine!

Coming SOOON!

WELL! I was supposed to blog more cosmetics, but I deleted all my raw snaps and then I accidently saved over my collage. GRRR. So more of that tomorrow, but for now a quick sneaky peak at three new styles coming soon from Elikatira!

Coming SOOOON @ Elikatira

Breanna, Richelle and Stevie are all three very different styles!  One braided beauty, one long style with a whimsical twist and studded headband and then a high pony with a little bit of a quiff!   Perfectly elegant and casual styles all in one, or three gorgeous packages!

Look out for these soon, for now. BED <3

These Are a Few of My Favourite Things…

Just a few casual looks for you today, inspired by some fairly new items I’ve come across and made particular friends with. This first outfit is all about the Cynful Isia shorts, which I fell a bit in love with and would love to pull off in the real world, would my thighs not dribble out the bottom. Keeping with the purple theme, I added Senzafine’s cute peasant top and a pretty headband by MONS for good measure. And voila the result.

Senzafine and Cynful

Another of my favourite things this week is Cheeky Pea’s Port Isaac pier, which is a little piece of luxury for those of us who find beach towels a damp and scratchy controversy. The couch can be separated from the pier, too, should you feel so inclined – which I believe to be a good thing, as it would look equally awesome in a living room. I have just the place…

Port Isaac by Cheeky Pea

Below is the outfit I’m wearing at the end of the pier. It’s a simple look that’s easily thrown on when an unexpected tp comes in for a shopping trip, combining the Marlee skirt from R3volt with okkbye’s Summer Tank in grey.

okkbye and R3volt

And here is what I perhaps should have been wearing – my new favourite bikini, by DCNY. Something about the pattern makes my heart happy.

DCNY Denim Bikini

And finally a Somnia ensemble even the name of which make me grin: I’m wearing the Comic Tank in true retro-Batman style with – wait for it – Floozy Bandit shorts. Amazing.

Chilly Sensibilities

I have some gorgeous new dresses from Cold Logic to show you today and, as we’ve all come to expect from this awesome brand, there’s a little something available for everyone, whether you’re a fan of bright, bold colours or muted tones. First up we have the Stiles dress, with a peacock trim to help you with the strutting fabulously part of proceedings.

Cold Logic: Stiles

Then there’s Karr, which is a demure and elegant dress that works as well for a special occasion as for a summer evening out with friends.

Cold Logic: Karr

Plume meanwhile comes with optional jackets so, if it gets a bit chilly while you’re walking the pixel coastline, you can cozy up in a matching jacket – or pick a mismatched colour, if you so desire.

Cold Logic: Plume

And finally there’s Roberts, which again has an optional jacket and is the brightest and most vibrant of the lot. I think this one’s my favourite, simply because it’s so eye-catching. Of course, if you disagree, you have three other options to choose from!

Belleza @ The Arcade

We are merely HOURS away from the arcade opening (well ok… double figures but WTH!… still hours!)

Belleza @ The Arcade

You need to click through to see them up close and personal, but I can assure you they are PERDDDDY.   The top three are the Rares in the gacha, the rest are common!  There are a mix of tones and brow colours, but each is stunning.  I do love Belleza Skins for that sharp, vivid look they give my face but still super pretty!    This is a brand new face from Belleza debuted at The Arcade, so that is a double bonus.   There is a lovely range of makeups and I know with gachas it can be frustrating to get a tone or brow colour you don’t like, but that’s the joy of trading and if you’re anything like me, you hoard for that right “moment” anyway, you never know when a tone you wouldn’t normally wear or a more striking makeup, or even more mutedw will come in handy!

It’s soon guys, and I AM EXCITED!

A Little Sneaky Peek!

So, Elika has been working despite being super busy in RL, and the fruits of her labour are ALMOST upon us!   There will be a new store (eventually).. but to be released REALLY soon are a bunch of new hairstyles (also the ones from TLC) and exciting new textures and better still… they come with a HUD!  YAY!      All old styles have been retired, but I can happily say these new ones rock, and the textures? OH.EM.GEE!

Elikatira - Coming Soon!
Elikatira - Coming Soon!

There are the new styles, a little bit of everything except a boy short style, or any boys… but I am sure there is plenty more to come! The HUDS come with the textures on the pack you want with over a handful on each, and if there is an accessory you click a button and it pops up a little colour HUD! AWESOMESAUCE. I do love that Elika has gone the HUD route, I find it much easier and inventory friendly… there are the regular colour packs for Blondes, Browns, Reds, Whites, Ravens.. and there are Dawn and Sunset colours too, each colour set comes with 12 solid colours and 6 dip dye or ombre or whatever you want to call them!  OH! HAIRBASES! THERE ARE HAIRBASES TOO! OMGGG YAY

They should be out REALLY soon, but no definite time/date.. just SOON… and also there is a small price raise because of the extra textures, but they will only be around $L300 a pack! Which is a small raise for so much more stuffs! YAY

I leave you with all the colours (actually most, I didn’t snap a couple, but it’ll be like a nice surprise)… enjoy, I know you will <3

OH my top is from Shabby Cat, a gorgeous hooded number, more about that another day, and the skin is the new Cho from Essences, but more about that another day too <3

Erratic Blue Eyes!

I don’t know, I struggle with titles for blog posts, don’t hate me!   Some new goodies from Erratic and other places today! YAY!

New @ Erratic

Erratic have a new skirt and a new top out and they work soooo well together! Mindy and Sally (top and skirt) are delectable  mesh items, cute and casual but sexy too.  Mindy comes in over 20 flavours, some plain, and some with motifs… all of them you will say WANT to, I know that much!   You can pair them with jeans, skirts, shorts… whatever you want! I, of course, paired them with Sally, the new zipper skirt because that made the most sense.  Sally comes in 11 colours, some plain, some with duo colours, as you can see above!   The detailing is wonderful on both items, as you would expect from Erratic, and these are definitely some wardrobe staples!  Also worn are boots from Gos, hair from Elikatira, the gorgeous Arcade item unicorn horn/ears from Half Deer and a gorgeous skin from Aeva/Heartsick, aptly named Willow :D

Destiny Eyes @ IKON

You can see the face a bit closer up of the skin here, isn’t she pretty!?  The thing I love about Aeva/Heartsick skins are that they look fresh faced, real. just… nothing too sourced, nothing too heavy, just the right amount of details to make you look beautiful!   The focus of this picture other than the skin are some of the gorgeous new Destiny eyes from IKON, you may have to view bigger, well no may about it, you will… but I do love me some IKON! YAY!
