kiss me at midnight

new year’s eve!! \o/ it’s mid-afternoon, and yet the festivities seem to have been kicked off already…

12.31.2011

eehe~

bff vivi && i *really* stocked up on champagne this year. last year, we had two bottles and quite frankly… the bubbly ran out *long* before it came time to ring in the new year. but we’ve learned from our mistakes and we both made doubly sure there was enough champagne to last the evening. there’s gotta be at least a half dozen bottles scattered around our home, in buckets with lots o’ ice, just so we always have some on hand should someone like to make a toast once our friends arrive.

..even if we both keep sneaking sips of our own here and there. >.>

12.31.2011

and vivi more so than me, every single time i look at her.. her glass seems to be empty (when she’d only just refilled it!) && her face seems to be even more flushed. and i have seen her stumble a little in those super high heels *twice* now. /me squints her eyes at the bff

but it’s in the holiday spirit, i guess! and really, what’s it gonna hurt if vivi is a li’l extra tipsy before the party can even start? it might make things more fun that way — a drunken vivi is a sight to see, lemme tell ya~ and at least we both look super cute! 8D

we are both excited to start off the new year right.. with our friends around us, happily sloshed, watching that big glittery ball fall in times square nyc on the tele. good food, good company, good drink.. shall be an awesome time all around!

i wanted to take the time out today to say a couple things, before my head is filled with a million li’l bubbles. i wanted to wish everyone a very happy new year && i hope your 2012 starts off amazingly! i wanted to thank all you guys out there that have read my blog over this last year, i really do appreciate it very much. ❤❤ the awesome feedback i get is the reason why i keep blogging, you have no idea how far your kind words go and i thank you muchly for it! and i wanted to thank all the designers on our grid, that work so hard over the year to give us fantastic new releases && gifts… i hope you know how much your hard work is appreciated! *raises glass* here’s to 2012 being the best year yet, with lots of happiness and prosperity and new beginnings! cheers!

fifty linden fridays are coming to an end! ;__; it makes me so bummed, i *love* these weekly sales. i’ve gotten some amaaazing deals from flf && have discovered brands i otherwise might not have. it’s something i’ve always looked forward to, so i am def sad to see it go.

but at least… it went out with a bang, forreals.

12.30.2011

there are more stores included in this week’s flf than i think i’ve ever seen && these 50L bargains are so, so awesome. hair, shoes, accessories, tattoos, poses, furniture, skins.. i don’t think there’s a category not covered in this sale. it is *so* worth checking out, if for no other reason than to give flf one last hurrah!

12.30.2011

i’ve packed on a lot of the 50L goodies for this look.. to try && give you an idea of the variety goin’ on: the hair i’m wearing is from clawtooth, the boots i’m wearing are from fir & mna, the mesh purse from maitreya (and there’s a pair of their new alexa wedges in brown for 50L too!), the cardi from fri.day (you get *three* colors for the price!), the tank from whippet & buck that’s actually part of a *50L fatpack*, the tattoo from the habitat, && the eyes and armwarmers and smudged black eyeshadow are from the plastik (these items as well — there’s three color choices and each pack comes with shoes, boots, skins, makeups, dresses, eyes.. omgaaaaahhh! if you only get one thing from flf this last week, get *this* from plastik!!!).

/me is out of breath

ridiculously good, i must say. ❤ all good things must come to an end, but what an ending it is!

don’t forget the violence

jam with me! \m/ -_- \m/

violent seduction is having a *huge* sale right now.. everything, absolutely everything, in the store is half off. and since it’s one of my favorites for all things dark && girly, i figured i’d show off two looks featuring lovely lovely things from violent seduction that you can pick up for a nice, hefty discount. 8D

plus, it’s been a while since i did one of *these* kinda looks.. something out of the ordinary from my usual jeans && blonde hair kinda looks. i figured since i hadn’t done one in a bit, doing two would perhaps make up for the time lost? teehee~

12.29.2011

in this first look, i’m wearing the lenore dress… but not even all the pieces to it. there’s several different ways you can wear this dress && there’s a few other included accessories i didn’t include in my outfit. that’s why this sale is *so* good — normal price, for what you get is an amazing deal. but on saaaaaale? it’s a big fuck yeah from me!

the second look centers around the muse dress.. which, again, comes with a few different options for wearing. there’s *three* different skirts — the short version i’m wearing here, the lolita version, which is right at the knee and poofy, or the long version which goes right to the floor. the detail on both of these dresses is *superb* and i love the textures, the prim pieces (all of which are so easy to fit), and the choices in color (i’m wearing both in “death”, but each comes in several colors to pick from!).

accessorize with piercings and jewelry by hod && mandala, some suuuuuuper cute new hair styles from ploom && two (sadly) limited edition skins from pink fuel.. and these looks just fell into place so nicely.

and this sim… oh my god is it amazing. the fashion shots i took do *not* do it justice, so i took some landscape snaps to show it off to you. it’s hauntingly beautiful.. delightfully creepy. very unique build and it was the perfect backdrop for some dark photography! check it ouuuutt~

skullface

i guess i am on a pencil skirt kick lately..

12.28.2011

..not that there’s anything wrong with that, of course. 😉

the one i’m wearing here that i picked up @ collabor88 from aura is, like, *right* up my alley. the skirt itself is very feminine && totes shows off the curves, with a frilly hem and a flared bottom. but the skull is the main reason why i bought it — it makes this skirt an awesome contrasting combo of punk’d out girlishness that i really, really like. plus it’s mesh, which means it moves so wonderfully when i walk or pose. unffff ❤❤

12.28.2011

i like combining contrasts this way.. cute with creepy, flirty with grungy, dark with light. the pretty skirt with the big grinnin’ skull, a lovely cropped sweater (also out at collabor88 from the sea hole) that is delicate && beautifully colorful, with extra tattoos and piercings and fingerless gloves. a look like this is so *vixxie*.. it’s definitely dressed up but the full-body ink, the piercings && the skull still have me in there somewhere. it’s all lace and bows and feathers but with a bit of an edge to it. if i had to define my own personal taste in style, that pretty much sums it up. xP

needless to say, i’m rather proud of how this look turned out! \o/ and the fact that the two main components of my outfit — the sweater && the skirt — were both only *88L* each ranks this outfit vee~eery high on my list of favorites i’ve done to date. kudos, me!

in venice

so bff vivi && i, in our exploration, found an area in world modeled after the beautiful city of venice (on an aptly-named sim called prada, no less!).. and we were immediately enthralled with the buildings, bridges and canals. and in our infinite wisdom (ahahah), we decided it was a perfectly fitting backdrop to show off some of the newest mesh goodies we picked up. the latest fashions, in venice, by prada.. see, it totally works! xD

12.27.2011

maitreya has been on a roll with mesh releases as of late — and all of them have been *amazing*. first the boots, dress && purse that vivi’s wearing.. then the sweater and boots i’ve got on (along with a ton of other new things!).. all of which come in some fantastic colors and, as expected, lovely and realistic textures. the shape on the dress totally gives you an hourglass figure && the scooped, open back on the green sweater i’ve got on is equally sexy.. maitreya is always good for gorgeous things, but these new mesh items are seriously above and beyond. *u*

12.27.2011

i’m also wearing one of the *new* mesh mini skirts from mon tissu. like the longer pencil skirt i blogged previously from mon tissu, the mini skirt is also a combination of clothing layers && a mesh insert. it makes fitting an absolute breeze and the fact that it’s partially mesh means not only do i not have to fiddle, but it also moves so nicely with any animations or poses i put myself in. wearing skirts like these, or just mesh in general, really spoils you.. because now i’m not so fond of the good ole prim crotch piece that usually accompanies short skirts. it makes me excited for the day when everybody upgrades to mesh compatible viewers && even more designers delve into the wonders of mesh. /me sighs dreamily~

12.27.2011

and of course, vivienne && i could not resist rockin’ it out with our new stuffs too. that’s one of the awesome things about separates as nice as the ones from maitreya, mon tissu or even beetlebones.. who made the mesh studded leather jacket i’m wearing in the look above. sure.. a hot pink pencil skirt works for more “classic” looks if i’d styled the outfit that way, but it also works for more “rockabilly” inspired looks, too. well-made pieces *transcend* (good word, there!) styles && if it’s a classic silhouette.. it’ll work for whatever sort of look you’re goin’ for~

plus that hot pink.. i had to have it!

merry christmas

ah, my last post before the christmas! it’s christmas eve && i am *so* excited for the festivities to actually begin~ and since i’m in such a good, holiday mood.. i’d like to just talk about a few things other than fashion for once.

12.24.2011

vivi && i have been trying as hard as we can to get absolutely everything done before tomorrow.. so we can actually relax && enjoy the holiday. all our gifts are wrapped and piled up in our living room, everything is cleaned and decorated, i even found the time to do *more* baking this morning just so i had nothing to worry about tomorrow. and i’m pumped!

halloween is still my favorite holiday of the year, but i can’t help getting into the holiday spirit around christmas, too. the familiar songs, the food, the friends && family, the weather (fingers crossed for a white christmas! whose with me!?).. there’s a lot to love about christmas. it all just gives me the warm ‘n’ fuzzies and it’s very, very easy to feel like an excited li’l kid again around the holidays.

12.24.2011

our entire house spells like gingerbread && peppermint. the stockings are up, the fireplace is lit, and even our meeroos are in the holiday spirit with some festive costumes. there isn’t a single detail i left out this year, i’d really like to make this holiday for vivienne and i and our friends a good one~

if you celebrate, i hope you have a fun-filled, wonderful day tomorrow. ^_^ i hope you get all the gifts you’ve been wanting, i hope you get some time to relax && enjoy the time with your friends and family, and i hope your noms are as good as ours are gonna be! ;3

vivi && i both wish you a very merry, very *calm*, very joyful christmas this year~ /me raises her glass of eggnog ❤❤

santa’s li’l helpers

it’s the day before christmas eve && i am *sure* santa could use all the help he can get! it’s probably hectic up there at the north pole with all the elves runnin’ around, trying to get absolutely everything done before the big day. do you think he’d let bff vivi && i help out?

12.23.2011

we’re obviously christmas-ready and willing to help in any way we can! i mean, nothing says “i’m here to help~” like fluffy white fur, short skirts && red panties… amirite? ;p

and lucky for us, there are a lot of christmasy freebies on the grid this year.. y’know.. to aid in makin’ us feel festive. vivienne && i are wearing a bunch of freebies from various stores in both of our holiday looks, in case you’re needin’ a xmas-outfit-on-a-budget.

12.23.2011

the short dress && hat with horns that vivi is wearing are both group gifts from epic. i always rave about the items from epic because they’re *always* nicely made && adorable, but joining the vip group is totes worth the fee. there’s a bunch of gifties for group members under the tree in the front of the store, vivi’s outfit included, and will pretty much dress you head-to-toe in christmas goodness in no time flat!

another good group to join is the group for vinyl cafe. the fee to join is tiny && the group gifts are frequent and generous. the boots i’m wearing here are a past group gift, that actually came with a bolero, dress && ear muffs as well. the *mesh* santa hat i’ve got on is a past group gift from insufferable dastard — yet another group with plentiful monthly gifts. the set of hats came in a bunch of colors, and each color came in plain, striped && patterned versions, and since it’s mesh.. means it fit perfectly right out of my inventory! another freebie i’m wearing, the holiday light string ’round my neck, is a hunt prize from blah. it comes with a couple static poses and isn’t so much a necklace of lights as it is a .. noose… of lights. but! it’s fitting for the time of year, at least? xD

oh, and the nose ring i’ve got on? *also* a freebie! it’s a hunt prize from hod so you know how excited it makes me. it’s not exactly super christmasy, but it’s freeeeee and it’s hod. you should go snag it while you can, because i said so.

*and!* there’s lots of holiday cheapies && full outfits out at sakide, which is where my panties and jacket set is from, and they’re all conveniently located in one building outside the main store. my outfit actually comes with a lot more pieces than just the two i’ve got on and there’s a ton of other christmas-y bits and pieces out at sakide. there are more costume-type outfits, or just cute separates that are fitting for the holiday in decoration or in color, and for the price you pay… it’s like one-stop shopping for holiday attire~

so there’s no excuse not to look festive if you’re celebrating christmas this year! freebies, cheapies && gifts galore out there on the grid. and who knows, the more christmasy you look.. perhaps santa will let you help him out, too! ;D

midnight sled ride

you ever have so much candy that you almost go out of your mind? you’ve got more sugar pumping through your veins than you have blood && you’re ridin’ a sugar rush so potent, it feels like if you were any more hyper.. you’d be a hummingbird?

no? just me && bff vivi then?

12.22.2011

a li’l christmas candy never hurt anybody, but maaaaaybe when your candy canes are as.. *large*.. as the ones vivi && i had.. well. perhaps a bit of moderation would have gone pretty far. but we both love peppermint and even though we already had sweets *before* we even dug into the candy canes, they were just far too tasty for their own good.

so after we polished off our peppermint… we got some ideas. some crazy, sugar-rush-induced ideas.

12.22.2011

..like, wouldn’t it be fun to take a ride on our sled in the middle of the night? off of the biggest, bumpiest, most tree-covered hill we could possibly find? hells yeah!!

our eyes were filled with determination as we stared down that hill. i was to give vivienne a running start to help the sled pick up momentum more quickly, then hop on the back just as the sled started down that hill..

12.22.2011

and we were off!!

it felt like we were going about a million miles per hour down that hill. trees, rocks, snow-covered ground.. all of it went past my eyes in a blur. it was absolutely thrilling && in the process, after going over a few rather large bumps, vivi and i both lost the last bits of candy we were snackin’ on. but it didn’t even matter! the ride started off fast and exciting, we were practically flying down the hill on our sled! she && i were screaming and laughing and decided to treat it like a roller coaster ride — hands up and everything!

but as our small wooden sled rounded a corner..

12.22.2011

…we realized why there weren’t more people taking advantage of our sweet sledding hill.

as soon as the tip of our sled tipped over the edge of that drop, vivi && i knew what was coming. the hill, as it turned out, took a rather sharp dive straight down… and it was far enough down the hill that we couldn’t see the drop off from the top through the trees. we were going far too fast to stop the sled, the only thing we could do was scream (or in my case, try not to cry!) && ride it out and hope for the best.

we finally landed in a snow drift towards the bottom of the hill, it was the only thing that could stop our sled. vivi went flying face-first into the snow, but i tried to dive off to the side… and ended up rolling the rest of the way down the hill. we didn’t get hurt too badly (vivi had a nose full of snow, while i just ended up with twigs and li’l pebbles stuck in my hair), but we were scared shitless.

let our adventure be a lesson to you! no matter how super awesome && amazing an idea sounds to you when your mind is clouded with obscene amounts of sugar… don’t do it!! you’ll end up having your slife flash before your eyes, develop an irrational fear of sleds && probably pee your pants in fear in the process. ….. *ahem*

12.21.2011

the kittycats advent calendar is so chalk full of freebie goodness that it almost seems unreal! bff vivi is a huuuuuge fan of ploom skins, so she’s already shown off the *free* ploom skin gift from the calendar here on my blog (right here if you missed it!). but there’s also jewelry, accessories, boots from gos (which are so gorgeous! unnfff), and the mitten && scarf combo i’m wearing is the gift from malt.. which comes in the pretty teal green i’m wearing and also a deep burgundy color set as well. when i last went to check, each gift was still available regardless of the date it was released… so go slap each && every window to grab an awesome giftie! it is *so* worth it!

but you see that skin i’m wearing in the picture up there? it’s *new* from candydoll && comes with a ton of options… so pic spam ahoy!

the irina skin is *goo~ooorgeous*. soft, feminine makeup && a stunning face, with a beautifully shaded body (that you’ll just have to go and demo yourself to see, teehee) and as i already said.. a ton of options to wear!

there’s four tones to pick from (pale, tan, tanned and dark) && each makeup comes with several different cup sizes and a hair base. but if you like to mix ‘n’ match like i do with eye and lip makeups, there’s options for that too!

on top of having pretty lip colors for each eye makeup, *all* lipsticks come on the tattoo layer as well. so if you want the sultry smokey eye with a bright red lip, you can do it! green eyeshadow with pale pink lips.. pink eyeshadow with a nude lip… you can customize however you like. i’ve been spoiled by having this option with lots of recent skin releases from various brands, so i am *super* excited to see even more designers are doing it too. i like the versatility && the ability to wear my favorite eye makeup with my favorite lip color. and the fact that we can wear multiple tattoo layers means i’m usually not so apt to buy skins that don’t come with options like this irina skin from candydoll. and, i mean.. a skin that comes automatically with options for chest size is always a plus, especially considering the fact that my own personal shape sometimes looks off when there’s only.. va va voom chest shading when worn with my own smaller cup size.

the pale tone is my own personal favorite for my choice of hair color, but just look at how stunning the other skin tones are. rebeca dembo makes suuuuch pretty skins && this one is no exception!
