i wanna do bad things with you

now that my move is over (or at least, the hard part is done! now i just have to unpack everything i spent a month and a half boxing up……….. grr), i’m back to second life… and back to blogging!

\o/

so i thought for my first post in my new house, to get back into the swing of things, that i’d indulge in what i like to call… a li’l fan service.

i may be slow to catch on, but i am currently *obsessed* with true blood. i’m desperately trying to catch up on all the episodes before the new season starts && considering the fact that i just started season 4 last night… i think i should be good before the premiere.

which is awesome, because today.. i’m doing my best impersonation of sookie stackhouse and channeling all things vampire bait.

/me perfects her “sweet and innocent” look….

it definitely helps to have two *very* sexy volunteers playing vampires for me, too. 😉 ❤

i tried convincing one of them to go blonde, just for one post, because eric northman is one of the hottest vampires i’ve seen since spike (and just what is it about blonde vampires, hm?), but alas.. neither one of the boys were kind enough to oblige.

not that it’s a terribly big deal..

05.16.2012

..considering how well they played the part, blonde hair or not.

i *suppose* dark hair is just as hot on vampires as light hair is… mmh. not that i really was paying much attention to their hair… i mean, braden is there shirtless.. and allarik often looks prettier than *i* do. i’d be lying if i was really all that concerned about their hair color.

romantic

while searching for a pretty, spring-time sim to snap some pictures on, bff vivi && i stumbled upon a gorgeous place called calas galadhon. there were so many li’l spots to sneak a sweet, romantic moment (tandem bike rides.. a hot air balloon!).. and lots of places perfect for taking photographs.. that she and i *totally* felt the love in the air~

shame it was just with my best friend! ;P

05.09.2012

at least she and i looked pretty! ehe.

well, we always look pretty.. but still. ahah.

05.09.2012

vivienne and i both *really* loved the latest mesh releases from cold logic.. so much so that we both decided to wear tops from the newest set. hers, with the cut-out sleeves and low neckline, is in stunning shades of coraly pink, soft peach && pastel yellow.. all swirled together in a pattern that looks very much like it’s all been water marbled.

she paired the top with a pair of pastel mesh jeans from maitreya in the prettiest baby pink… as well as *two* grabs from the culture shock event — her hair, from exile && her shoes (which were freebies!) from g field. lovely in pink, with accents of yellow.. my bestie is covered head-to-toe in springtime shades and looking fabulous in it~

05.09.2012

i, too, was feelin’ the yellow for today.. only instead of pink, i liked the color contrast of this perfect bright blue with it. as i said, my top is from cold logic as well && i *loved* the way this layered top drapes at the waist. it’s flowy and feminine and this color combo really stood out to me.. all of which make for an adorable top that’s easily one of my favorites released thus far.

so i grabbed a pair of mesh white shorts from jane to match.. and a pair of platform sandals from slink, a golden tasseled necklace from glow studio (that’s discounted @ the dressing room blue!) && a soft, side-swept hairstyle from lelutka completed the look.

of course, i had a blast roaming the sim with my bff… but just look at how wonderfully built && landscaped it is. as cheesy as it sounds, it would be *perfect* for a sl date night… *hint hint*… but is just as lovely for some quiet exploration by yourself~

cheesy songs aside ;p the two lovely ladies posin’ with me today are probably my favorites. in *either* life. of course, bff vivi should be familiar to anyone that’s read my blog before.. but let me introduce you to the gorgeous, dark haired girl with us! kystria aura is one of the sweetest, most *fun* people i’ve met to date in my slife && i’m very lucky to be able to call her a friend. and luckily for me, she was rather compliant about posing for a bloggity post with the bff && me!

02.19.2012

all three of us are wearing a version each of the super cute *mesh* balloon dresses/tops from aura. they were out for just *20L* @ the love gatcha event on amira, but are still available at the mainstore for some extra gatcha funsies. and since kystria has been mia for a li’l while in world, having an extra one of these dresses in my inventory was a nice way to introduce her to how mesh works, how it fits && how it moves.

and, it’s a testament to how versatile fashion can be — all three of us styled this top *completely* different without even trying. one as a sexy short dress, one more casual over jeans && one a li’l edgier with ripped up fishnets and boots! \o/

02.19.2012

thank you, kystria, for posing with us! it was lotsa fun~ ❤❤ i am sure this won’t be the last time you guys will be seeing her here on my blog either, no worries. 😉

mesh goodies

thick, bulky sweaters seem like mesh was made *just* for them. no longer do you have to worry about fixing prims, resizing them to fit, or having the prims go completely wonky on you while your AO is on…

12.15.2011

..instead, you can simply plop a mesh top on and get as bendy as you like! \o/

bff vivi && i have been pretty much obsessed with all the mesh offerings on the grid lately. we’ve gotten *incredibly* spoiled by now nicely && how easily mesh garments fit.. and lucky for us, there seems to be no shortage of mesh items to pick and choose from.

in fact, if you’re still a newb to mesh (which, c’mon.. firestorm just did a full release of their latest viewer && it supports mesh! there’s no excuse now not to upgrade!), and looking to just test the waters a li’l bit… the large-collared sweater i’m wearing, by aitui, is out @ collabor88 for just *88L*. there’s two colors, the lovely emerald green i picked && also a nice subdued red, and a demo to test your size.. and it comes in a version for the guys.. aaaaand it’s incredibly inexpensive! i love cowl-neck sweaters irl and this one mimics that style perfectly — the fact that i didn’t have to fuss for an hour getting the prims to fit my small size is only icing on a delicious mesh cake.

12.15.2011

vivi’s hair && long cardigan are also mesh.. both of which blend together nicely with normal clothing layers and prims. her hair, from wasabi pills, would be hell to wear && photograph even if it had split attachment points. there’s always something that sinks into shoulders or arms or chest with long hair… but with mesh, it always sits just right over her shoulders that only the *craziest* poses would make it break. i enjoy wearing mesh hair myself too, i just sometimes miss the movement prim hair can have.. but for photography? mesh hair makes things so much easier.

her mesh sweater, by mon tissu, looks *so* warm && soft. the textures on this piece, as with all of the pieces we both own from mon tissu, are reach-out-and-touch-it realistic. it shows just enough of the collarbone area to layer a tank or tee underneath, as vivi’s done here, and still is super cute for outerwear. the pretty shade of blue just looks wintery to me and mixes well with the shades of white && gray vivienne chose to accessorize with.

and i know it has little to do with the fashion aspect of my post, but how cute are these reindeer we found?! we even found rudolph!! they didn’t seem to mind at all when vivi && i used them like pose props and back drops.. and rudolph was exceptionally eager to have his photograph taken. who knew reindeer were so photogenic, hmmmm?

do a li’l old school jammin’with me. i can’t believe how long ago that was ( makes me feel *so* old that i saw him live when that album came out! D; ), but i still love his crazy ass. ♥♥

not that marilyn manson has much to do with my look xD but i was feelin’ nostalgic today.

anyhoozles, onto the look~

6.14.2011

i blogged some tattoo layer makeup from silenced the other day because of their closing sale. lots of goodies.. clothes, hair, skins.. all marked *waaaay* down. it’s always sad to see a SL store close, but stocking up on some sweet stuff for a low price is always appreciated. my hot pink jeans are from said sale, which are totally my favorite shade of pink, and the waist is perfect. not so low cut that my entire booty hangs out (which gets .. tiresome after a while ;/), but not yanked up to passed my belly button. it’s a good medium && the color makes these awesome imo.

the adorable ears i’m wearing are from twee. told ya i’d go back for ’em~ ;p they remind me *so much* of chobits && they feed my kawaii~~~! side — and yes, i have one, thank you very much. i like the goth, the punk, the grunge, the piercings && ink just as much, but sometimes… there’s this *squee!* girlishness that comes out and i just can’t help it. which is why i tend to mix in a li’l bit o’ cute every once in a while && these ears are just that! a bit o’ cute.

6.14.2011

speaking of cute.. my choices in jewelry are absolutely adorable, too. the cuppycake necklace i’m wearing is from burroughs && even comes complete with color-change everything. the cupcake cup, the stones making up the frosting, the metal.. all of it is customizable. that’s probably my favorite thing about burroughs jewelry — it’s wonderfully made && i coulda made myself a hot pink and black cupcake to be all matchy matchy if i really wanted to.

the charm-filled bracelet i’ve got on is from primalot — another jewelry brand where almost everything is customizable. the beads, the flowers, the metal.. all of it is color change, too. i am in love with the largest charm && the big stone in the middle of it. the bracelet looks *so* vintage && yet still modern. and the fact that i can make it in any color under the sun (just about!) gives it a permanent place in my massive folder of jewelry.

plus, how *amaaaa~aaazing* are those boots?! i picked ’em up from deco this past 50L friday && i’ve been dying to find a look to blog ’em with. big combat boots like these, i’ve probably got at least a half dozen pairs.. but these are all strapped && so nicely textured. i am kickin’ myself for not getting the pink pair offered with these black ones, but i may have to go search for them on my own. black combat boots are sexy, but pink ones?! might as well call them vixxie’s ultimate favorite boots evar.

love is in the air~

in case you haven’t heard, there is a hunt going on at ricielli. an *amazing* hunt. twenty different pieces, from shoes to separates to jackets to *skins*, dotted around the store for $15L each.

now, i may not be a math whiz (far from it, actually >.>).. but 20 new items for 15L each means *redonkulous* deal. you can expand your wardrobe considerably for the mere price of 300L total. it is fucking awesome!

and you know bff vivi && i were all over that like white on rice. you should be too, ’cause i have no idea how long these deals will last! the hunt is for valentine’s day celebrated in brazil, which was *yesterday* the 12th, so gogogogo and get your inexpensive fash’ on…

…after you read my post 😉 of course.

6.13.2011

vivienne’s look all centers around some super hot pink. she && i both made drooly, glazed over faces when we realized *two* of the hunt items we’d picked up were shoes — and the ones vivi is wearing are a lovely magenta. they are the sophia pumps, of which i already own a pair, so i knew even before she put ’em on that they were gonna be sexy.

so she paired it with the maria jeans && la diva tank that’s in a nice, complimentary shade of fuchsia. it’s *quite* low cut, has the always beautiful marilyn monroe emblazoned across the front, and includes some fantastic prim and texturing — something i’ve come to know from ricielli. some of my favorite pieces (jackets!!!) are from ricielli && it’s because of their prims. always so well made and always very easy to fit.

6.13.2011

my look was built around these smexy leopard print, high-waist paints. i’ve probably said it a thousand times on this blog, but i *love* high waists on clothing. skirts, shorts, pants.. it always looks sexy. combine that with animal print && it’s very, very *rawr*.

and the shooooooes! the heels i’m wearing are in a style i didn’t already own && i have no idea why. the bright orange carmelia pumps are *so* vixxie — chains, spikes and li’l crowned skulls right at the toe. i want to lick these shoes (carefully…), i adore them. plus in a fun color like this bright tangerine, it adds a bit of a *pop* on the feets — something that i’m guilty of doing *all the time*~

6.13.2011

vivi && i accessorized it up with some prim nails (duh, it’s rare that we *don’t* wear prim nails).. hers, by candy nail and mine, by virtual insanity. vivienne’s are all cute && girly in pink with butterflies, while mine are more animal print. what can i say.. when i’ve got a theme, i really run with it. ;p

both of our tattoos are by para designs and the eyeshadow we’re both wearing is from virtual insanity, but while i opted for a more subdued set of *freebie* piercings from glue ink, vivi on the other hand went all out with a ton of holes in her face courtesy of hod.

it just goes to show you that *quality* pieces can…. transcend styles. sure, i can totally picture ricielli fashions in the highest-of-the-high style magazines, but they can still work for two punky li’l elf girls. we may not be toothpick-legged, nine foot tall haute couture models, but we can rock the ricielli goodies just as well as anyone. and for 15L a pop, it’s *def* worth giving it a try. i mean, just for those orange shoes alone….. /me sighs dreamily && gets lost in thought…

bear && bunneh

you ever see something on someone else and go “goddamn.. i *need* that..!!”..? a pair of shoes, a piece of jewelry, maybe a hairstyle?

that was me, two ridiculously cute li’l bears && one very slexy lady.

6.08.2011

see that headband? i *could not* resist it. not only was it a dollarbie from spring field but it’s cute as all get out. there may or may not be four or five bear-y headbands, in various colors, floating around in my inventory right now, too. >.> but how can you say no?! the price is juuu~uuuust right && those teeny faces… it would take a cold-heart’d person to refuse to take them all home!

my spoon o’ nom was another cute thing i could not resist. it’s from the gacha at illusory && i really would have been happy for any of the flavors of dessert bunnies (banana one was adorable too, btw ;D), but this one.. pink and sprinkles and just the tiniest bit of cream on his itty bitty head… ugh. i’d be torn apart after eating something that cute, even if i’m sure he’d be mighty delicious~

6.08.2011

nardcotix makes some of *the* nicest shoes on the grid these days. i have a freebie pair of red pumps from waaay back when that are glittery and scrumptious, so when i got the opportunity to blog these newly released wedges? talk about a squee moment!

the gloria wedges come in about a billion color choices, though here i’m wearing them in purple. the cerise is the epitome of *barbie* pink too, and were definitely a close second, but this purple is so rich && so bright.. it is the perfect shade of violet. nardya rousselot makes fantastic shoes, i gots to say.

oh oh oh! and! sales!! there seem to be lots goin’ on this week && quite a few of the goodies i’m wearing came from those sales. poetic colors has gorgeous eyes on sale (some 50% off, some *75%* off!), the sea hole has a whole slew of separates && dresses on sale for 50L including the high-waist shorts and tank i’m wearing (this only lasts until june 10th! gogogogo right now!), and sadly silenced is closing.. but is having a massive sale to help ease the blow. there’s hair && skin loveliness, and the tattoo layer makeup i picked up there was only 25L (there are other color choices too!).

bears, delectable bunnies && sales.. there’s not much else that could make this girl much happier than that~

livin the life i was born to live

as i’m blogging, i am also watching this movie && it is probably in my top ten favorites, evar~ /me jams && ogles j.aniston

anyway~ the look i’ve got for today is chalk full of freebie && cheapie goodness, since the last two haven’t really included much. and that’s what i do, i scope out cute freebs ’cause i’m cheap like that. …teehee. :3

and, y’know, just as a head’s up. post comin’ this weekend will be full of so many freebies, it’ll make your head spin. no lie!

6.04.2011

way back when i was a wee newb, i liked SL for the whole nifty 3D virtual world aspect. dressing my avatar was fun, but wasn’t what i focused on. i liked exploring, i liked chatting, i liked hopping from sim to sim && back again. i always wore freebie skins, freebie clothes, freebie hair… just ’cause it was there (&& ’cause i was still cheap even back then, go figure). but as i’ve said here in the past, the first avatar that really felt like me was neko. and then i slowly started to.. actually care about what my avatar looked like.

belleza was one of the first skin brands where it really clicked with me. the alyson skin, and then the elle line… it was like kismet. i wore those skins into the *ground*, i loved ’em hard. so when i made my triumphant return to SL earlier this week, belleza was a top priority to check for new skin deliciousness.

…and lemme just say, i was *floored* by the group gifts. floored! the skin i’m wearing here is erika && it reminds me a lot of elle. it’s probably why i love it so much. the lips are gorgeous, the skintone is perfect (i’m wearing sunkissed but the gift includes a lovely range in skintones!), and the makeup.. flawless as usual. and the fact that the tone of erika i’m wearing has blonde brows, it just. oh man. not gonna lie, i peed a li’l bit when i tried this skin on.

6.04.2011

as for other freebies && cheapies, the necklace i’m wearing from burroughs is a new free gift. i’m always amazed by the quality from burroughs jewelry and this necklace is no exception. it’s color change and adorable and absolutely lovely~

plus! there’s a 99L sale going on right now at burroughs. if the freebie necklace doesn’t interest you, inexpensive but super high quality jewelry should. 😉

my tattoo is from my beloved para designs && is a hunt prize. i can never resist a good tattoo, but a *free* tattoo that only costs a bit of huntin’ time is an insta-win for me. there’s quite a few hunts going on at para designs (hinthint: zombie popcorn prize is nice too! but that’s for another post) && an entire table worth of freebies by the entrance, it’s totally worth a TP in to have a look around if you love ink the way i do.

the socks and eyeballs i’m wearing are past && present 50L fridays items, too from kyoot and plastik. and my tee, it cost a whopping 2L at the surf couture outlet. it’s really all about finding the right things to spend your lindens on, and finding some hidden good deals (see what i did there? hidden? hunt prizes? no? …kay) for the rest, and working it all together. being frugal can still have you lookin’ fierce, if you know where to go~ amirite?!

last summer days

in my area, it is definitely feeling like fall already. i know it’s not technically autumn until the end of the month, but it’s been consistently chilly where i live for the last week and a half. warm-*ish* during the day && then really cool at night, which is absolutely beautiful weather for me. \o/ i love it~

still, the end of summer still makes me sad. ;( which is how it usually goes, isn’t it? maybe it’s force of habit from centuries ago when i was still in high school. you dread the end of summer, don’t you?

but during the baking-hot temperatures in the middle of summer, you’re wishing for snow and blizzards and below freezing highs. then in the winter, when you’re buried under snow, you cannot wait for that first thaw of spring. but *right* when the seasons change, when it’s not yet the next season && still not quite the previous one anymore, especially when it comes to summer… i dunno, i wish the cooler weather (no matter how much i enjoy it!) would hold out just a liiiiiiiittle longer~

so my look today is holding on tight to the warmth of summer, even if i’d be freezing my balls off wearing a tank && capris in my real life. ah, such is sl..

i made a few rounds today at the project donate sim && was awed by how many participating designers there were. it’s an amazing thing, both with the hair fair and with project donate, how many people step up to offer incentives to help out charities. i bought a whole lot of new stuffs, but the top i’m wearing is from addict at project donate. the design is adorable, the prim hem is very nicely made, and it fit perfectly with my theme for still hoping it’ll warm up again!

so i paired the tank with a pair of capris i bought from dp yumyum. seriously, how cuuuute is that store? the gatcha of ballerina flats was fun too, but these jeans were one of the nicest things i snagged. i love the extra-baggy cut on the pants && the prim cuffs add just enough detail. on my short self, they definitely look too big && if they were uncuffed… too long as well. definitely fitting for a boyfriend’s pair of jeans sorta look.

the fan-fucking-tastic necklace i am wearing is from burroughs. my inner nintendo-nerd has eyed it i don’t know *how* many times… and i finally bit the bullet && bought it. i am so glad i did, ’cause it’s insane how awesome the charm is. i couldn’t decide between changing the mushroom from red to a bright green 1up, but red won out in the end. the entire necklace is color change, though.. i could make up my own mushroom! 😀

my nails are new from candy nail && include three rings with the nails. i really like the design on them, subtle camo with some added jewels on the nail tips. plus rings with nails are always a good thing, doubling up on attachments when i can’t wear a separate set of rings… always appreciated~

it may be technically hoodie weather in my neck of the woods, but at least in second life.. it gives me the opportunity to live in perpetual sunshine if i want. which i probably won’t, but it’s nice to have the option. 😉 halloween is not that far off && has to be, by far, my most favorite time of the year. a few more days of pretending it’s 90 outside doesn’t hurt, though!

sales && skins

…make me *so* happy. and *so* broke! \o/

it seems like this week is international week of sales, with perhaps a subtitle of that also make vixxie go into linden-debt. but believe me, it is *more* than okay. when i can get loot at ridiculously low prices to make me look this good? totally not a problem. 😉

so first, the sale at maitreya. 50% off = shopgasm to my ears. the jacket, belt && sexy shoes with tights i’ve got on are all from maitreya. they are but a small portion of the goodies i snagged while there, but these three things were probably my favorites. gorgeous red heels, a low slung leather belt && meticulously tailored jacket.. there’s not much better than maitreya’s prim and texture work. looooooove them~

my shorts are from identity which sadly is closing. ;( but the entire store is marked down (i didn’t see anything over 50L!) && i picked up these high-waist shorts that are *delicious*. really, it’s no shocker.. since i’ve mentioned it about a billion times.. that anything high-waisted is an insta-win with me. these shorts are no exception.

the tank i’m wearing underneath the maitreya jacket is part of, kinda, the sale at tyranny. true enough, there’s a sale going on at both locations, but! there are also hidden freebies scattered across the normal vendors. i picked up a couple pairs of shoes, a dress, some denim capris && this tank all for freeeee~ free! sale + freebies is one of my favorite combos.

and, as if you haven’t heard.. there’s a sale going on at a little store called truth. all the fabulous hairstyles there are for sale at halfprice, making a pack of beautiful light blondes in the style i’m wearing (called seraphina) a big whopping *125L*. amazing deal and so worth the intense lag. remember to de-prim && de-script yourself before you try to go! running around trying on truth demos in a bikini is what i did. 😉

now, for the second half of my title… skins. the talented rebeca dembo of candydoll has been on a roll lately. cute, flirty tops *and* a new skin release?

a skin with stunning makeup choices?

i think i’ve died and gone to heaven~

makeups from left to right ::
cream, nude eye, killa, lila, pinkysh && peach

bianca comes in 4 skintones (the tone i’m wearing is tan) && six beautiful makeups. the eyes are just so very pretty && no one does pouty, glossy lips the way candydoll does. i love these faces (and *hello* but the killa makeup? my absolute favorite) and while i didn’t snapshot it, the body is just as lovely. you’ll have to grab a demo and see for yourself!

a sexy new face && covered in sale goodies…. i don’t think there’s much else i love more. unless, of course, we’re talkin’ food. then the only thing that could make my day better is *maybe* some chocolate. anyone wanna share some with me? :3
