Sometimes I get asked why at times I do pictures with more effort taken, and then do look of the day pics like this, or a picture with a full scene, in contrast to this simple pic. Truth is it depends on a lot of stuff, mostly time and what I am trying to achieve. I find it easier to highlight one or two items in a picture that I deem more “arty” – in my LoTD pics like this I tend to show off a few items, without anything getting lost in the fray.
That’s the beauty of blogging, you can do it your way – and yes you want to do the best job you can if you are blogging items you’ve received as review copies, and you want to do the designer proud, but I am pretty sure we all try our best, even if it differs from somebody elses best. I know I feel down a lot when I see my views dip, or I don’t get a lot of likes on Flickr and for two reasons – one it makes me feel inadequate and two because I feel I am not doing the creators justice.
But I like my “simple” LoTD pics just as much as I like the more in depth pictures I sometimes find the time to do. Either way I like looking pretty and I thank the designers for that one <3 I am desperately juggling loads of pics i’ve taken vs things that have just come out and I have it backed up out the butt, it’s finding the time to post them all! I have a spreadsheet and EVERYTHING – it is driving me a little crazy at the minute with a lot going on in RL – but I thank anyone for putting up with me as a blogger, a friend, or just a fellow plurkie/sler.
Don’t let anyone dull your sparkle, fellow blogger – you rock your blog the way you want, and the way you feel comfy – I’m sure any designer you blog appreciates the effort you’ve put in as much as your readers reading <3

I will wait for you
Now I’ll be bold
As well as strong
And use my head alongside my heart
So take my flesh
And fix my eyes
A tethered mind free from the lies
And I’ll kneel down
Wait for now
I’ll kneel down
Know my ground
Raise my hands
Paint my spirit gold
And bow my head
Keep my heart slow
‘Cause I will wait, I will wait for you

A little calm LoTD today, mainly cos I wanted to blog the new Genesis Lab head, and the Elikatira hair, so I put together a little minimal look.
This sweet new head is Jiang 2.0 from Genesis Lab, out at Shiny Shabby an with four additional packs of lipsticks to choose from, and also two other heads there for purchase. WOO! A gorgeous head with four eye opening options, so you can be wide eyed, closed or either of the in between and you can toggle blink too. I love love love trying out new mesh heads, i can’t see this is one i’d probably wear full time as you can only get the skin that it comes with, which is FAB and has all body appliers etc, I just like to mix and match makeup! But hopefully we will see more come out for it.
I paired it with another event item, that is the Elikatira Fiona hair at Cosmopolitan Room! A gorgeous hair with a pin-up feel to it, in all the usual bad boy colours and options. Gorgeous for a discounted hair, but then Elika is always quality.
Everything else is also superb and you can find details about them belowwww <3
I need to sleep, I have man flu, send help.

A bit of a darker, sexier look today – mostly inspired by the absolutely stunning appliers from YS&YS for My Attic – for the Lelutka head! OH MY! How much does it make you look like Madge herself!? How utterly amaze! I am loving the look, I’ve showcased it with one of the new Lelutka hairs especially made to compliment the mesh heads, Cassie – shown here in the short version! The colours that come in the HUDs are fantastic too! I finished off the look with a sexy number from Blacklace, it comes with the collar and cuffs included as well as a billionty options.

Yes yes, another Skin post! The Skin Fair is almost over for another year so I am desperately trying to crank out more posts! Today’s skin/s are from Lumae!! One of my fave skin stores to shop at, there is always something new and different from normal makeups to fantasy! YAY!
The release from Lumae at SkinFair this year sees the debut of the newest generation of skins – Jewel! All three skins are discounted whilst at the fair, so make sure you pop on over.
The differences are subtle in Lumae generations, but noticeable. A lot of appliers are included with each skin including Omega (which work with lola, phat azz, maitreya, kitties lair, wowmeh, banned, g.inc and other omega users), Omega Petite (which work with Yabusaka Petite Avatar 2), Omega Head Appliers, SLink Hands and Feet, Physique and now including Visage appliers, Mesh Project Body and Head, Loud Mouth, Nyam Nyam, Sweet Lips and Kissers and AMD Bump! ISN’T THAT A LOT!!!? The skins also come with various brow, cleavage and freckle options, lashes AND shape!
I’m not sure how the girl does it, but she does it, and she does it GOOD! There are three makeups to choose from as you can see, and all come in such a variety of tones from porcelain light, to a darker chocolate tone. All are simply stunning. I usually showcase these skins with a mesh head as I love love LOVE them, but today you get my actual face. Love it. Love that face on my face. LOVE ALL THE FACES.

A classy kind of look today with thanks to some lovely creators at some stunning events! I love this Baiastice dress, it comes in many colours but today felt nude..ish. It goes really well with the new Hucci Shoes I have, which BTW can be played with via HUD to change the options on various parts so it’s like 299494939 pairs of shoes in one, get innnnn.
Belleza has some stunning skins out at the new round of Uber, which is all things Celestial and Spacey, so that really fits! Some of the makeups are more fantasy leaning, but some are just regular, so something for everyone, and each one is stunning as all hell, so yay!

A new hair story to me is Mithral Apothecary, they don’t have oodles of hair out yet but their mainstore looks AMAZING, although these three hairs can be found at The Seasons Story. Such lovely meshwork and the textures are just scrummy, if textures can be described as that, I always love to see a new store and I have high hopes for this one! In the picture i’m also wearing Sia in Artic from Glam Affair, IKON eyes and some undercrackers from Luxuria found at My Attic!
Oh My Gacha is another event still going on for another week or so and Hopscotch have these animal slippers there, fitting Slink, Maitreya and Belleza! YAY! I am in love with these, it’s not often I wear slippers in SL, but if I did, these would be my go to choice right now. The meshes are so cute and realistic for the animals they portray and the textures are soft and make me want to hop to slumber.
A new round of My Attic has opened, WOO HOO! Give in to Temptation is what you need to do with this round, and that is what I did! I was only banging on yesterday on plurk about my new found love of mesh heads and VOILA, Sasy pops up with check out the YS&YS items at My Attic, and low and behold… HEAD APPLIERS (of course you can wear them without mesh bits too). YES!
I had a FIELD day putting together this look, and by field day, I mean I had 100 HUDs attached! I am also wearing the slink physique body because Lexi Morgan of Stellar has some goodies out there too! I’m all meshed out today! I must also point out these stunning shoes are also from YS&YS and are for the 21Shoe event happening today! They aren’t just ONE shoe tho, well they are, but they come with a HUD so it’s uber value for money! Continuing with the event theme I bring you Damselfly’s female hair from The Fantasy Collective, which stole all my money yesterday with it’s Under the Sea theme, UNF, that’s my bag!
Also finally you get to see more of the gacha items from Glam Affair that can be found at the Kawaii Project, it’s such a lovely little set up whether you have them all or just a few.

Collabor88 is well in the swing of things now, and these are the 8 Glam Affair Faces that await you! Shown here in America but available in two other tones. I am in love, such a lovely mixture of pinks, reds, purples and nudes! The other exciting thing about Glam Affair is they now do WowMeh and AMD Baby Bump Appliers! I have no need for a bump applier, but I DO for a WowMeh!!! I am wearing it here, and it’s greeeeeeeeeeeeeeat! My hair is new today from Ploom and is the My Attic hair, there are tons of great items at both events, so shimmy on over there.
My top is from Gala Fashion Design and is NEWNEWNEW and out for a hunt on the 23rd, it will be only $L1 including appliers for boobs and WowMeh! Which as you can see, I am wearing it on. There are three tops too, so BARGAIN!!! My pose below shoews the updated WowMeh that fits now with Slink body parts, as well as with an “insize” and “oversize” option. As you can see one is curvalicious, the other a smaller shape, I didn’t fiddle with sliders at all, these are just over my regular shape, so what you see is what you get! Both sets of panties come with the WowMeh body, and the HUD has been updated so you can make all parts invisible bit by bit making pesky mesh clothes easier to fit :D
