Welp! I think it was a tall order, this whole 365 days of LoTD lark… don’t you?
I sat down and thought to myself, Willis? Do you really want to log in for the next year, EVERY DAY, WITHOUT FAIL and do this? Or do it all in a week then spread posts (I can’t, i’m anal, that would be cheating) and I can honestly say “yes” was not the answer that sprang to mind. So, I have decided that I did one whole month, the other eleven can just… be forgotten! I will still be doing my LoTD, and posting regular posts, probably daily! But being a mum, someones partner, having a job, having a house, having animals, having a real life outside of the PC… I can’t obligate myself and I know, I know! No1currrr but me, but I like to explain these things! Some days I wanna blog all the colours of one item, sometimes I wanna blog a look, sometimes furniture… giving myself this challenge was ridic.
So today is a “Fresh Start” for me on many levels, including RL, SL, FB, online in general etc etc, some aspects of it are explained in my RL blog, and really? the rest of it is easily explained just by saying “I want to find myself, find fun, to feel weight lifted and be me again”… I’m rambling a bit, right? LOL SOZ! Ok onto the look, as today I took control of my emotions and made positive changes, I decided that I would label myself “Ringleader of My Own Life” and found a suitable look.
The first item I was like YESSSSSS about was this gorgeous mesh ensemble from Epic, which is The Ringleader in Green! It’s an exclusive for the Bewbapalooza event and it comes in various colours, but green being on of my faves, this seemed like the obvious choice. Obviously, from the title of the event you can tell that this item comes with appliers, I chose to show it without though, to show you that not EVERYTHING you find at boobie events has to be all garish and huge and hey, you don’t even have to own boobs! I paired it with the new Elikatira hair Sound, which by the way you should check out as there isn’t long left on the sale now.. and while you’re there, if you like the pose it’s from Frooti (my store hi!!) and that will be going along with Elikatira, so stock up now.
The skin is from Belleza and they kick off the new “Best Buys” promotion, where at the beginning of each month a selection of exlusive skins are released for just $L400 each! This is just one of 4 womens and 2 mens skins available and as expected from Belleza, it’s gorgeous! Also new on are the Lizzy T-Strap Pumps from LaRoo, which are out now for a new round of FaMESHed! I have seen a lot of goodies there that I need to buy, but I try not to break my neck to get in early cos I can’t deal with having to shove people out of the way, but you will want to go for these shoes!! They with a colour change hud where you can select skin tone, nail colour and colour of the shoe, pretttyyyyy! I do love me some shoes lately!

Wow, I’ve made it nearly 2 weeks without failing or ragequitting! GO ME!
This is another LoTD! Day 11, some of it Collabor88 again. The top and skirt both come from Tee*fy and go perfectly in the same colour, or different colours for a bit of a mix and match! The top comes in both solid and sheer, this is the sheer version, so obviously you can’t wear with an alpha, so I just adjusted my tatas and voila! I love the soft look of them, so cute and sexy! The hair is from Tableau Vivant and is also from Collabor88 like the outfit, shown here in Azure Dip, it’s available in many colours and is unisex too, as it comes in 2 sizes, so men that like longer hair, go forth…. PURCHASE! The Necklace is from Maxi Gossamer and is also a Collabor88 item, available in both Gold and Silver, and Long and Short versions, this necklace is detailed and intricate, and isn’t the only item MG have out for your perusal!
The skin I am wearing is new from FAKE and is the MIEL skin. It’s shown here in Pale, which I think for some people would probably equate to Tan.. but that’s what demos are for… It’s a really nice skin that comes with a lot of options including no brows, coloured brows, freckles, no freckles and complete with cleavage tattoo layers! She is available with 5 makeup choices and an array of tones! A real beauty and one I will be featuring again in the near future, with more makeup options shown!
Also worn are the new and highly detailed mesh shoes and feet from LaRoo! The Sparta shoes come complete with mesh foot, so you can paint your toes and change your skin tone and your feet will match perfectly and no more ugly linden toes! I guess that must be a bummer for mesh shoe makers, nobody wants gorgeous mesh peep toes with ugly linden toes! So glad LaRoo hopped on the foot board (ha! hopped! feet.. no? ok). They are a gorgeous sandal with such amazing detailing. You need to zoom in close to see it all perfectly, there is a little ruched side detailing, metal studs and rings holding the shoe together and straps and omggg details to the max! They come with a HUD with all the colours shown below, and you get tons of nail options, including a few patterns! You can change the tone of your shoe to the preset ones (6 to choose from) and I found that my tan looked almost perfect without even fiddling! But there is also a colour grid for you to choose and play with too. GET THEM, THEY ROCK!

Yep, I set myself a challenge!
I have never done any type of 365 challenge, because my mind is all over the place and i’d probably fail, but this year I am going to try and do 365 LoTD posts! There may be weeks where I am on vacation that I may come back and post a series of looks over one day, or a few bunched in together to make my 365 up, there may be days where I am unable to get to a PC to do a proper post, but I will do 365 LoTD looks, I SHALL! OR I SHALL TRY!
I am also going to try a few different stores, the usual stuff I say I’ll do in SL, socialise more etc.. who knows? I will stick to at least one of these things, mmhmmm! So here is a brief LoTD! 1 of 365!
I donned my Tango’s for todays look (hence the Tango’d in the credits) and put on my new glitter dress from Rotten Defiance! It comes in a range of colours but I liked angelic white, one downfall of the dress, that might put a few people off, is that it’s got a crotch flap, but it’s a really cute little dress! I made it cuter with my new LaRoo Liberty Boots, out now at the new round of faMESHed! These come in a huge array of colours again, and they come in various sizes, some really nifty calf boots that aren’t too showy! To top it all off I wore the Truth Group Gift complete with sparkly and glowy 2013 head topper, I feel like I have welcome the new year in style! HUZZAH!
Catch you all for day 2, tomorrow!

I have been teasing you for a couple of days with some fantastic goodies from the Together for Sway Event, well, it is now OPEN! Here is your TAXI!
I have another goodie or two from there for you now, as well as some wonderful new boots from LaRoo!
Dilly Dolls has this ADORABLE dress out, and it’s SUCH a steal at just $L400! I ummed and I ahh’d and I was like do I want it? DO I REALLY? Obviously the answer was yes, and I am so glad I did because it comes in a way that you can wear it a billion ways (ok maybe not that many). First off let’s take a look at the dress on a whole. It’s got a waspy style waist, so if that isn’t your thing you may not like it, but there is a demo, so you can always try it out! It comes with the dress on it’s own in standard sizes, then a shrug with built in boobs for you to wear with it! I did question if there was an alpha missing, as you can’t seem to wear the dress on it’s own, you must wear it with the shrug/boobs… but the lovely creator told me that she is working on that and anyone that buys this and wants that option will be updated with that option as soon as it’s available, as there will be a full release after the event! But either way, I think it looks lovely WITH the built in boobs. You get three options of boob size too, as you can see below. If you’re wondering where my hair is from it’s one of THREE exlusive colour packs out for Together for Sway from Alice Project, the streaked hair comes in blonde, black and white packs with a bunch of limited edition streak colours! Also worn is my Chloe head from LOGO and the new Arsene Boots from LaRoo.
The dress has a HUD where you can change the colour of it, and the skintone of the boobs and such like. These are the colours you get to choose from, see what I meant by a steal for just $L400?!
These are the built in tones for the boobs, I matched my LOGO skin quite easily, and there is also the old school colour picking way included too, so if you have a green skin, don’t fear, the boobs will be fine for you too, but yeah you can play around with the colour picker to match it EXACTLY how you want it! Make sure you get on over to Together for Sway and check out the awesomeness!!!
When LaRoo opened they not only had the wonderful studded biker style boots I blogged the other day, they had these gorgeous strappy buckled boots too! The Arsene Boots are just stunning, they come with an option to have ALL these colour mix and matches too. I have paired each strap colour available with each boot available. I think, if my maths is right, there are 276 ways you can wear these boots with the strap/boot colour combo, but maths is NOT my forte, so please don’t take that as gospel and yell at Cracked if I’m wrong! They are a STUNNING boot that I just fell in love with.
You also get four heel options! But I didn’t throw that into the equation, but if you want to talk numbers.. yeah no don’t talk to me, OODLES OF WAYS YOU CAN WEAR THEM!

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!
