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

Not alot to say about this look, I wanted to look cute and sassy, but I also wanted to wear this amazing hair and this dress, so I did. TOGETHER. Call the fashion police, I don’t care, I love it! The Arcade isn’t on for an awful lot longer so if you want this gorgeous hair from Atomic you best got on over there! This dress also comes in SO many options not shown including a lace top and a tutu! I plan to blog it again in more of it’s glory, so keep your eyes peeled!

HAPPY FRIDAY PEEPS! A couple of skins today, one you must get before The Arcade is over, the other you must get just because!
There are 17 prizes in Pink Fuels Arcade machine. The new face is Elsie and there is a new Biscuit tone, so it’s all in that! The items in the machine include the skin in various eyebrow colours, lids and there is a rare lip stain pack too! Lots to win and at a really reasonable price, to make the deal sweeter for the duration of the Arcade (so a few more days left girls) appliers for Slink Hands/Feet, Lola Tango appliers and Omega Booty Appliers are FREE at the PF main store, and all other appliers and body mod tattoos in Biscuit tone are 50% off!
Also out now is the Chrissy applier for Lelutka heads from Swallow and boy oh boy.. AMAZING! Shown here in the Ivory tone I have showcased all lips/eyes featured on the HUD with Black Brows, obviously there are tons more brow options, I’ve also done the freckle/brow combo, but you don’t have to!
I’m also wearing the new hair from Doe for Uber, a really lovely updo with bow you can change the texture of, love the wispy bits!
Please click through for a bigger picture as you can’t see it all very well in this little one! I had great fun setting up this, it’s a very simple set up but I love it. The Consignment Camper Cuddle Van is just MEGA! It comes with rezzing ivy and is perfect for couples or if you’re single, like me, you can sit on your own with a hammer and some cute animals and just look adorbs. I mention the hammer as it’s from Katat0nik for this round of Level Up which has just opened and it’s SO CUTE… and obviously so deadly that it’s looking after me on my little camping expedition.
I couldn’t help but rez the items from The Arcade from Ispachi, I don’t feel I have done them justice but who doesn’t need friends?! OWLS! OWLS ARE MY FAVE! OWLSTOCK SHOULD HAPPEN IN SL! Thank you Half Deer for giving us OWLS! The adorabled fencing and vehicles are from What Next and are older items, but still fabulous!
Everything I am wearing was blogged yesterday here!

Over at the Skin Fair there are some goodies from Elymode, and this time one of the bonus’ is that Ely has made Slink Visage HUDS for her makeups YAY!
They are packs of eyeliners and makeups, you can also get them as normal makeup tattoos so do not fret if you are not part of the Cult of Mesh Heads, it’s all good. I haven’t shown all available but each HUD comes with 8 or more makeups that vary in colour, from spring green to disco purple, there is something for everyone.
They look particularly adorable on Visage, so that’s how I opted to show them, one lot with lashes on and one with them off so you got a true sense of what they look like! I know not everyone always wears lashes.
Also shown are two sets (if you can tell – OF COURSE YOU CAN) of the new Slink addon teeth! OH MY DAYS! Ely told me about these in SL and I just had to rush over and get them, there are a variety to choose from including three diff vamp ones, bunny, gap and more! They addon to the slink visage heads but Siddean did say that she plans to release ones for normal mesh heads and other mouths if the teeth can be hidden! HOW EXCITING!!!!
My hair I found on the marketplace from a store called Rezology, I kinda like it!! You don’t get many textures but there are some really cute styles, and I am still rocking the Buzzeri eyes and Swallow piercing, cos that’s how I roll.
I need to pull my head outta my butt and decorate both my sim and my home, but I suck… HUGELY! But I rezzed a few bits and made myself a cute little corner and then GOSH DARN IT, CUPCAKES INVADED.
Oneword has finished now, but fairytales do still exist in SL and Windsong just gives us the perfect fairytale with their room divider! So cute with the chalkboard side and then teh dangly lights and it compliments the Fetch sofa that you can find at the brand new IDK event beautifully! I didn’t know what else to put out but I rememer that fetch also did suitcases for the Bon Voyage TLC round! SUITCASE DRAWERS, YES! I saw lots of props with cases, so this was nice, usesable items YAY!
I then of course remembered The Arcade, I haven’t gone broke there yet, but I knew that I needed to jazz up the place a bit with some foliage, so that was down to Lark to do the job with their funky planters, you can see (better if you click through and go bigger) that I rezzed the brick, book, clock and I couldn’t resist the rollerskate, I will leave the undercracker planters for the boudoir :P
Finally the cupcakes invaded. Who can resist them?!? Sway did the most gorgeous cupcake gacha with cute little bunnies, with few rares to get and some equally cute commons these would make great toys, cute decor… or just carry them around and look adorable.

Helloooo! A bit of a biker chick look today, or well what I’d dress like if I wanted to get the attention of someone like sayyyyyy Jax “Willis’ Boyf” Teller! Genre started a new round called Sons of Genre, where you can get the gorgeous and badass backpack! I thought the skirt from Bueno at C88 with it’s rips and pockets made the perfect item to wear with it, and the look built from there. Gorgeous spikey heels from C88 from Eboni over at Hucci, and of course Swallow with their Dead Head Arcade Collection! I was thankful for the Exile release as this hair fitted perfect with the look, and it’s the Male hair too, who says we can’t have everything!? Rounded off with a lovely sexy top from ANE for TLC and various other components to complete the look, all in the credits below.
I couldn’t, of course, not post another Skin Fair Skin, so this time you get Ilenia from WoW Skins in the Milk tone. There are oodles of appliers for this baby, if you can’t find them at Skin Fair, you can at the main store. The faces on this baby are just gorgeous! I really love how they look on me, and with 6 makeups to choose from with a variety of brows, you can’t go wrong.

Helloooo, yes my blogs will be taken up with skin for the next couple of weeks I am sure, much like everyone elses. Except this time its a MESH HEAD! YAY! My new fave things.
You will probably need to click through to see them both bigger, but it’s worth it! Dakota is the new mesh head out from TSG for this years skin fair and she is a corker. She comes in all the usual TSG tones, I have opted for Vampy because it’s such a beautiful light porcelain colour skin and ugh this head, I can’t even put into words how cute it is!!! You get a HUD to change to all the expressions above, as well as having a choice of hairbases and makeups, I have shown one make up in each expression and they are all stunning. It won’t be everyones cup of tea, I know, and I see a lot of people saying Mesh Heads just make everyone look the same. It’s not WHAT you wear, it’s HOW you wear it that makes you stand out I think. I paired mine with the new Exile hair from Collabor88, and of course the TSG Rare Pageant Queen Crown from this round of The Arcade, cos duh, I’m a princess pageant queen winner in life!
Everything about this head made me smile, the expressions, the luscious shine on the lips, the cute little cheeks, I just wanted to pinch myself. As an added extra there are some add on ears you can purchase too! All shown below along with the regular mesh head ear, and they come in blushed and normal, I just look so cute I could die. THANK YOU SUGAR GARDEN, THANK YOU!
Well! The Arcade is in full swing and as usual there are so many goodies there that I don’t know when I will find time to blog them all OR shop OR swap OR afford it all! BUT.. I know I wanna. Consignment have this super awesome collection out with the theme of On the Road! I haven’t shown everything you can get but I have shown a fair few items. The trailer itself is the Rare, and its just lovely, it comes with poses inside too and I have shown you a sneak peak of the insides below. Everything about every item is SO detailed, down to the little ridges on the gas canister tanks, the trivia game that actually IS a game, and the face on the adorable flamingo (fyi I typed penguin first, it is not, I repeat NOT a penguin). I absolutely adore this set, and you should check it out!
Also! I need to mention that the new round of Level Up starts REALLY soon and I am so so so so SO excited!! This time it’s action/adventure and there are some awesome designers involved, as always. Check out the Level Up blog for more information <3
