… shes got no self-esteem and vertigo, she thinks shes made of candy! WOO! I felt like this deserved a candy themed song, as I feel candytastic in pink today!
This dress is just sooooo gorgeous, it’s new from SAKIDE for The Black Market and it comes in two colours to choose from, I thought this hue of pink was just delicious though, the cherry blossoms were just a bonus. Luckily I had the Flamingo Clutch from HANDverk handy, which ALSO matched the hue of the overall look just wonderfully. I do love HANDverk items, they make such unique stuff! The bag is available (or was) at L’Accessories, make sure you go look, i’ts available in tons of colours. Also worn which is new to me today is this .Shi Hair from.. well yeah… .Shi! It’s available at Limited Bazaar and I was shocked to see hair there, normally it’s some sort of magical clothing (there is clothing too) but HAIR! OMG! HAIR! It’s so gorgeous, it’s unrigged mesh and comes in such yummy colours, and each “colour” your purchase comes with various options.
The pose you see is new from Adorkable and will be available at the Pose Fair which is opening SO EFFIN SOON! I am going to showcase the whole set, but I couldn’t wait to just show off one of them!

.. Well… some of them! HANDverk continued their theme for this round of The Arcade, following on from the Mad Hatters Tea Party Set… you can now grab yourselves the Relics of Oz!
Not all the Relics are shown here, but a mere handful. You can get a superb range of goodies including the items seen here, which are: Dorothy’s Basket, Silver Slippers, Woodman’s New Heart, Green Spectacles, The Cyclone and The Golden Cap… but you can also get much more including The Wizard’s Balloon, Lion’s New Courage, Tinman’s Oil and MORE… the two rare items are the Silver Slippers and a Display Case… the case is useful because a it houses ALL the items, obviously some come with display option and wearable, so that’s a double bonus!
I think its a really unique gacha, and if you scrambled to buy the last set you may well do the same with The Relics of Oz. All crafted lovingly and to the highest standard, these are definitely some pieces of art.
I will leave you with a little bit of a closer look at Dorothy, you can find her and her pals at Doll Coco, they were frees gifts (the LI is quite high on the models, Dorothy is wearable, just fyi!)
Get to The Arcade and grabs yours… well when you can get it in!
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!

I have been in a bit of a funk recently, many factors, different things, mostly my own mind whirring like crazy and I was gently reminded today that every look tells a story, to make of things what I want, after all, it is your world, your imagination… so imagine this…
It’s a cool, cold night back in the day, the days of war torn lands and steam trains, the days of lost love and waving off your love ones with a handkerchief. She stood solitary on the platform, her duffle coat the only thing keeping the crisp air from biting at her skin, her platinum blonde locks floating in the wind, her stunning headpiece she’d bought especially for the occasion giving a pop of colour to match her cherry red lips. He’d gone.. for how long was a mystery to him, to her, to everyone but she knew that she would be strong and look forward to the day he returned. She’d tucked a small reminder of her inside his uniform, one of the petite butterflies from her hat, she hoped he’d keep it close to his heart and whenever he looked at it, feel the flutter of hers against his.
Of course this love was eternal and the wars raged on for years, decades, fads came in, fads faded out, people learned to jive, then caterpillar, then the robot until finally the macarena was born.. but still her love was unwaivered. On the date of their anniversary she wore her special coat, her hat, she curled her hair into the same style and she looked through old pictures, memories of him flashed before her, she smiled and she was happy. Imagine her delight when one day she returned home to find a variety of clutch purses scattered on her floor, shaped as hearts with cute little messages on like Be Mine, True Love, Cutie Pie… all the things he’d said to he before he’d left, and a small note just reading “The Wars rage, but my heart still beats, and it beats only for you”… somehow, in the magical world the way it was, he had managed to send her some new reminders of him… she had hoped for his touch, longed for his lips, but what girl doesn’t love a new bag? #
Ok so that story went from wartime woe to futuristic eternal love story, but hey, ITS MY WORLD MY IMAGINATION! The gorgeous new duffle coat I am wearing is from Erratic and it matches the Oly Hat from Glam Affair for Collabor88 just perfectly. Both are available in an array of colour combos! My skin is also from Glam Affair and is one of four skins available at C88 also, lovely jewelled makeups with vivid colours, perfect for those of us that like the brighter things in life. My hair is the new hair from Wasabi Pills and was the PERFECT hair for this story with it;s little curl at the side, it looks bang on with the Glam Affair Oly Hat/headpiece, it’s beauty! The bags are available from HANDverk and are gatcha items! There are loads to choose from including sweet, friendly, sexy and not so nice, only $L25 a play, are you feeling sweet or sour? Hmm?
As a side note, Insufferable Dastard has now opened an Outlet Store. Currently there are 5 sets of eyes, all with 3 variations for only $L25. They are system eyes only, but highly detailed and so cute! So make sure you check those out.

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!

Today is a LoTD based around the new round of HCE’s Zodiac Event! It’s time for Aquarius.
HCEs Zodiac is open with a new round! Aquarius this time, so expect lots of goodies with a blueish hue, water related and all that good stuff! I’ve mish mashed a few pieces together for today’s LoTD! The hair you can see is from Alice Project, and it comes with a cute Aquarius Sign clip (it’s at the back!), it’s a lovely, casual style with a classy feel to it. The top is one of the SySy’s tops available, shown here in a Midnight Tone but available in a fair few, this is a cute little tube top with a bit of a flare, it went really well with the Decoy Aedre Skirt! This skirt is so CUTEEEE, the “unicorn” colour is even cuter, but I wanted it to match one of the tops and it didn’t so you got to see it in a classy Black. Finally the shoes, they are from HANDverk and I think we all know that HANDverk does some really unique items! These shoes come with a Coral/Shell heel (or at least… that’s what I think it is!!) and a vivid blue colouring to the shoe. The pose is part of a set released by Exposeur for Aquarius, and there is a really nice couples pose too.

Ok, this is the last post of the year, definitely!
How better to send out the old year and see in the new than with a fancy new dress, a glass of bubbly, a new do and some words of wisdom?! The wall hanging is from What Next and is the New Years VIP Gift! It’s so cute and it also comes in monotone too, if you’re not a colourful soul. The pose and glass is the VIP Group Gift from STATUS Poses and is very cute! I couldn’t help but whack on a smile and scream BOTTOMS UP! My new ‘do is from Alice Project and I am normally not sold on Bangless hair but this was too sweet, with cascading curls, it was definitely going to be on my head. I also put on the gorgeous new dress from NiNight Creations, more about that below tho. The necklace is from Yummy and is still available at Collabor88, but only for the next few days, so shake that ass and get on over there! You can get it in three metals and with matching rings and earrings.
In the close up you can see I am wearing some wonderfully delicious earrings. They are the HANDverk items for L’accessories and they are just SO GORGEOUS! I chose the “toothsome” colour range, which is a bit multicoloured and matched ALL of the outfits I threw on, including my gorgeous eye makeup from the lovely Essences Maria Skin, I do look cute if I say so myself!
Finally here is the dress in all it’s colourful glory! These gorgeous Butterfly Dresses are stunning and come in so many vibrant colours, it was hard to choose a final colour for my main pic! I really love the bright limey colour, as well as the understated charcoal, a party goers winner, this beauty! The pose used in this picture is from aDORKable!
This is it from me, until 2013 now, so all have a wonderful evening! <3

Hellloooooo!! I am desperately trying to catch up on my blogging, how can someone blog once a day and still feel behind!? Because people release so many wonderful items! My blog folder is a mile long, so this post is going to be kinda huuuuuge! I’ll keep the wiffle waffle to minimum incase you actually do read the post, and just throw pictures of myself at you
First we will start with a simple Look of the Day! Sakide have this lovely Frost outfit out, and there is a matching mens set too (sans skirt ), it’s mesh, it’s pretty and intricate lace, it’s just lovely! It comes with mittens and scarf and of course with various sizes of mesh skirt/collar etc. I’m also wearing the gorgeous new PXL VIP Skin! Faith Old Hollywood is a grey skin with a gorgeous pop of ruby red lips, perfect for your monochrome shots, which I kinda achieved here, except with the lips and hair! The hair is also new from Lamb, one of two fantastic styles!
Over at Pixel Mode, now Tya has finished building the Oz sim (blogged just before this post – Strangelings!) she has started releasing again! I spoke to her last night in world and she said she wanted to get some holiday releases out, and just look! SO MANY SCARVES.. and Mittens! CUTE MITTENS! The first picture showcases the colours available in both the mittens and scarves, the basic, no frills colours… just knitted (or suede for the mittens) goodness!
This picture showcases the mittens in all their meshy glory, and the not so plain scarves! There are stripes, leopard spots and checks in a variety of colours. I really love these scarves, they are simple but do the job wonderfully, they also come in 5 sizes, which I didn’t realise before I’d shrunk my chest, so if you’re a bigger chested lady, don’t worry, this is the smallest size and my chest was set to around 30, and there are four bigger sizes, yay! The mittens are just lovely, the texturing is amazing and the colours are so adorable! I love the pastels. YAY PM!
After I begrudingly removed my PXL skin (however creepy does that sound!?) I popped on my new Essences Skin, this will be available at the brand new TDR Fusion and oh em gee, gorgeous!! I am wearing the other new Lamb hair in this one and a new mesh dress from Phosphenes, shown here in just two of the four colour available, the dress oozes cute and innocent… of course what it’s doing on me, I don’t know, I am guessing I am totally on the naughty list this year!
Here are the three makeups you get with the skin, you also get a variety of blushes too . I really REALLY love this skin, it’s so smooth and natural looking, even with the makeups, it’s just one of those skins that you feel at home in, ya know? Inka is coming on in leaps and bounds with her skin work and this shows it. You get a variety of brows too, only three shown here, and I didn’t wear lashes so you could get a better look! GORGEOUS!
Finally! Cheeky Pea and HANDverk have these wonderful Yule items out at the new Mens Department! I must admit, I’ve never been before.. I think I’ve been missing out! Not everything is for the boys (sorry guys, we like to muscle in where we can), and I must now go EVERY time! This mesh Antler Tree is just… the best tree EVER! Isla does such great work, and this is no exception… I feel it will take pride of place in ALL my SLhouses this year. Also something I fell in love with, the Cardboard Head from HANDverk! LOOK! ITS SO CUTE!! It comes in traditional cardboard with wreath, of this minimalistic white one with just one bauble, the reflection of the head is in the bauble too! I love little details like that, well done HANDverk!
All poses used are from aDORKable Poses, one of the best posers on the grid, in the loveliest way! <3
*SLURLS, if available, are on the Store Locations Page <3
..and there are still so many things to buy!!
The new round of FAIR is almost upon us, peeps and let me tell you there are some FANTASTIC items this time around, as with every other time! Two of my fave items so far to come out of there have to be this fantastic shelf from Cheeky Pea, and the dress from Geometry. I can’t get enough of this shelf, srsly. It’s a bit larger than I expected it to be but if I used my noddle and noticed all the awesome stuff on it, I’d have realised! More about the shelf below, let’s focus a bit on the dress. It’s SO pretty! I chose the Coral colour to wear, but it’s available in many more, a really slinky but well covered up piece that leaves the imagination ticking but makes you feel incredibly sexy too!
I wore a couple of accessories from HANDverk with my look, their recent release has been centered around Artists goods, ranging from an Easel to a Clutch, these divine Earrings and now this Necklace! These works of art are truly just that, works of art. The earrings are little paintbrushes and are available to match the colours of the other releases, and they are only at FaMESHed at the moment, the necklace has been released for L’Accessories, and it’s a corded style necklace, with the palatte holding it together. I chose Autumn colours, but there are few to choose from and I doubt you will be disappointed!
Back to the shelf! LOOK AT IT! I put together a small collage of the awesome details you can find there. A row of poloroids for you to fill in with your own memories, including a cute spare peg, jars sliding towards the end of hte shelf, books galore, a lamp that has a plug attached below the shelf to the wall and of course, in a certain state, horseshoes! It’s full of wonderful little finds and it’s a great centrepiece/discussions piece for any room of the house! Maybe no the toilet tho.
Finally, nine… yes NINE new hairs from Alice Project for Around the World! A variation of styles from long to short, sleek to a bit more bouffant. These styles work on the Infinity System but each hair comes with a Mini HUD so you get a great option of colours including solids, two-tones and dipped! I can’t pinpoint my fave because I love them all! Alice has gone to a lot of work for these event, and that is clear with these gorgeous styles. Also worn in the picture is the Haste MicroKini available for Around the World!
