good morning

giiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiirl, it is *too* early in the morning right now in my area of the world. the sun is barely high enough in the sky to make it light out && yet here i am, awake. now, sometimes i don’t mind an early start to the day, but today… mmh, i dunno if i am feelin’ it yet. maybe i need a cup of coffee…

11.16.2012

…and, perhaps, a best friend to prance around in my underwears with.

cause, y’know, that’s the best thing to do at the buttcrack of dawn. ;P and luckily for us, there is a *hunt* going on right now to supply us with said underwears… free of charge~

the dirty pillows hunt started at the beginning of the month && bff vivi and i were pretty excited to tuck in to it. me, i was most excited for the fact that free lingerie is the best lingerie (considering out of all the categories of clothing there are in my virtual wardrobe, the smallest folder is for bras ‘n’ panties), but for vivi… she was excited because this hunt includes boobies.

11.16.2012

the grid has seemingly exploded lately with big ole titties. clothing ads, blog posts, flickr pics… it’s hard to miss ’em nowadays. and while i’ve always been happy with a smaller cup-size, vivienne on the other hand took the plunge and picked up a pair of lola’s prim breasts.

for what they are, they are *definitely* nicer than bumpin’ the sliders up to max. the shape, fit, and general appearance of vivi’s boobs look *awesome* (and i mean, really awesome) with these prim tatas on. and even though they are totally not for me, i can still see the appeal… both for wearing them yourself and having a more realistic larger bust && for having a li’l (heh, or not so li’l) something extra for your partner to ogle.

all the hunt prizes — including both sets of lingerie we’re wearing here — include appliers for prim breasts. and the best part is, even if you’re not the owner of some fabulously large boobies, you can *still* make use of the freebies just like i am. the hunt may be geared for the busty gals out there, but those of us in the ittie bitty titty committee can still hunt for some very nice lingerie for *freeeeee*!

where the magic happens

if you’ve followed my blog at all over the years, you’ll know that bff vivi && i have lived together as roomies in sl for quite a while. last summer she and i bought a small beachy parcel and set up a house there together… there were lots of pictures here on my blog of us in our home. but this week, she ‘n’ i decided to move… and what an undertaking that was!

we’re *mostly* moved in… not everything is decorated and we’re still in the stages of figuring out what to put where… but since my bedroom is just about finished, i decided i’d pose there for my bloggity pics there today.

11.08.2012

our land is still beachy, so our furnishings for the moment is in shades of cream, khaki, blue, and yellow. but i am really liking it && the entire sim is gorgeous, so vivi and i have had no problems settling right in~

i promise once it’s all decorated, i’ll snap some pics.. but for now, you’re stuck seein’ me in my bedroom. ;P

anyway! enough about my new house, onto the look i’ve got for today!

11.08.2012

this mesh vest && button-down combo is from cracked mirror @ fameshed and while it looks just as cute over some jeans or leggings, i decided to style it today as… throwing my boyfriend’s shirt on in the morning. it’s *just* long enough to be decent as a (very) short shirt-dress && i really love the colors it comes in. i snagged it in this pink ‘n’ purple combo, but no matter which shirt you end up getting… there’s three versions included with different colored long shirts underneath the cropped vest. having options like that is *awesome* and makes it really worth the price~

since i wasn’t wearing pants (eh heh), i decided to go for a pair of long gartered socks from sn@tch. it should come as no surprise that i love me some gartered socks, i seem to always gravitate towards socks and stockings with garters included, but this deep wine color not only matched *perfectly* but also looked so damn sexy. and as always, you don’t get just *one* pair for the price, but an entire fatpack of socks in several different colors… inexpensive with lots of choice makes sn@tch one of my absolute favorite brands for depleting my linden balance super fast.

but for now, i need to get back to decoratin’ my new home! it’s so exciting having a new place and decorating is both fun and a li’l daunting. but i cannot wait to get it all finished…. and maybe, just maybe, starting thinking early about how we’re gonna holiday it up this year. :3 yay~

dark side

welcome to my dark side…

10.21.2012

…as if you’ve not seen it already. ;P

there’s *new* stuffs from some of my favorite brands && all of it is so perfect for halloween. or, y’know, everyday-wear if you’re me.

the skull-face tattoo && the multi-ring ear piercing i’m wearing above are new as a collab by nuuna’s and haus of darcy… and i cannot tell you how hard i fell for both. the piercing is partially mesh — the long spiked piece in my earlobe is mesh and awesome — and includes the facial tattoo in varying degrees of opacity for both men and women.

it’s available @ the fair event, the collection just rolled over to some really great new goodies, and if you’re anything like me.. you *need* this set. it is to die for (haw, no pun intended).

now, the skin i’m wearing underneath nuuna’s beautiful skull-face…

10.21.2012

…is just one of *many* released from glam affair. this appropriately named dark side collection features some beautiful makeups on a range of skins from dark and mysterious to light and haunting. and they are absolutely gorgeous.

10.21.2012

there’s two of glam affair’s most recent faces here — both ginny and roza. and each one is stunning. i could not pick a favorite out of these, each one is uniquely different. i love the full, dark red lips on one of the super pale skins, i love the stitched mouth on the darker gray skin, i love the two with bright pink blush dusted across the cheeks and eyes…

10.21.2012

these are wonderful for halloween looks (which you already know i’m a fan of!), but could just as easily work for a fantasy avatar.. or something decidedly goth. these sorts of skins are a big part of the reason why i’m such a fan of glam affair — aida ewing does soft and pretty so well, but also indulges the opposite side of the spectrum quite often. i adore the skins.

and when these skins are paired with aydan darcy‘s wonderful piercings && nuuna nitely‘s amazing makeup… it is a trifecta of fan-fucking-tastic.

zombie

so! i’ve done two looks for halloween (well, technically three if you count bff vivi too!) and today i have another one..

10.14.2012

they’re coming to get you, barbara…

i’m not sure what’s more terrifying — a lone zombie meandering down the street (because you know where there’s one, there’s many not far behind) or the fact that said zombie is carrying a rather large knife. nevermind *how* the zombie got the knife, though, because… it just seemed fitting for the look, okay? xD

10.14.2012

this look is surprisingly easy && inexpensive to put together, too, if you act fast! the ghostly white skin i’m using here is part of the gachas @ the arcade from glam affair && the current round is only up until the 15th (and that’s tomorrow!). but for a very small cost, you can try your luck at the machines… and there are several skintones available that’d work well for a zombie look!

and all the bloody marks and clothing are from edelweiss… and are *free*! the bloodied school girl outfit — which includes legwarmers, socks, skirt, shirt, a bunch of bloody tattoo layers && even the static modeling poses i used in the second collage of pics above — is available on the group-only lucky boards. these pieces are mesh and really well-made which make the price ridiculously awesome. and the lucky letters flip over rather quickly! and the group is free to join! *so* worth a stalk if you need a good halloween costume for cheap!

this costume was so fun to put together — and lots of fun to wander around in, too. so fun, in fact, that i took a li’l video of me bein’ all creepy ‘n’ stuff on the sidewalk. can you tell how excited i am for halloween?

minty

new goodies at collabor88, a lovely new collection at league (including a set of *freebies*!) && embracing the flushed cheeks sort of chilly temps outside..

10.10.2012

shades of mint, golden pink and bleached bone are not exactly typical for autumn, but *i* think this look works! i mean, who is to say i cannot wear a nice short skirt when it’s windy and blustery outside, hmmm? ;P i have tights on! that’s enough…. right?

10.10.2012

but! i mentioned new stuffs, didn’t i?

the new collection @ collabor88 rolled over the other day… and a few of my favorite things this round include the skin i’m wearing here by glam affair with the most *perfet* rosy-red cheeks, this mint sweater by ufo complete with a flamingo-patterned button down underneath, and these spiked bracelets by maxi gossamer. i couldn’t help but pair the sweet, feminine sweater with these punk’d out bangles — not only does it keep a li’l extra bit of vixxie in this look, but offers a nice contrast between cute ‘n’ trendy and dark ‘n’ badass.

league also is full of new things — like these delicious ankle boots (that i picked up in this nice neutral bone shade, love!) && a set of freebie infinity scarves that are perfect for keeping you a li’l warmer. there’s also some other goodies like patterned leggings, jewelry (which i *will* be back for) and a set of mesh tanks in a ton of color options… but these boots(!) and these scarves were def my faves of their new releases~

so i worked in some *freebie* tights from n-core, a past freebie mesh mini-skirt from the hucci subscribo (designer eboni khan is super generous with her gifts, so join the subscribo if you’ve not already!), and some *new* mesh nails from virtual insanity to complete the look. i’m layered *just* enough to not look silly while walking through this autumn-ready sim, but not so covered up that it feels like winter. because i like the fall, i love the fall, and am not quite ready yet to say goodbye to lots of leg and shorter skirts.. that’s what leggings are for, after all~

it’s never too early

it’s never too early, in my humble opinion, to start thinking about halloween…

10.07.2012

i love christmas, i love easter, i love my birthday (yes, my birthday *totally* is a holiday, tyvm).. but there’s just *something* about halloween that really tickles my fancy. it’s been the holiday i look most forward too all year ever since i was a little kid. i love dressing up, i love scary ghost stories, the candy isn’t bad ;)… it’s just fun. and figuring out costumes in my sl as well as my rl is just as exciting!

bff vivi && i both absolutely fell in love with these gatcha skins from pxl released earlier this week. each face is something different and the variations range from super spooky to pretty and whimsical. but these two skull-versions, mine as more of a hollow skeleton face and vivi’s as an absolutely stunning sugar skull, really inspired us both~

10.07.2012

we dressed in lovely, frilly dresses.. both from violent seduction. both ensembles are a little older, but awesome nevertheless. i’ve been a *total* mesh convert ever since it went grid-wide, but there are some things that mesh just cannot do yet. and tiered fabrics, with movement and frills and delicate flexible lace pieces are something that just wouldn’t look as nice in mesh. and these dresses are a nice example of how newer doesn’t always necessarily mean better.

10.07.2012

plus they both really give our looks a whole… sylvia ji kind of vibe, which is something both vivienne and i adore. her paintings are in an aesthetic i really subscribe to — beautiful, mysterious, and just a little bit on the creepy side. and her focus on gorgeous ladies with faces painted like they’re straight out of a dia de los muertos celebration make her art unique and fan-fucking-tastic. i think vivienne here emulates sylvia ji’s art in a rather accurate way… and her entire look would not have come about had it not been for these skins!

these skins are only *99L* per try && are transfer, so you can trade extras around with your friends. i was incredibly lucky when trying this gatcha — the two times i took a dip, i got the two skins i was really wanting.

…which reminds me.. i’ve another look coming soon with my second skin from this set. i can’t deny how excited halloween makes me and starting this early in the month on working on costumes is *never* a bad thing, i promise!

rainy days

with the turn of the seasons, my rl weather has been cold, gloomy and soaked with rain. watching it storm outside my real windows inspired me to bring all those chilly raindrops into the virtual world with me..

09.26.2012

i *love* the rain. the best weather for getting a good night’s sleep is when it is cool && rainy… and i really love listening to raindrops fall on the roof. but having to go out in it is a whole other story…

luckily, tea time released this set of mesh trench coats which were *perfect* for creating a rainy day kind of look in-world. i love the combo of this warm brown color with accents of deep red. the subtle pattern on the cut-outs on the side add a bit of interest && all the li’l details (the metal buckles, buttons, and belt at the waist) make this a really well-made piece.

09.26.2012

wearing a hat, with this red mint mesh hair && a gorgeously patterned umbrella from the sea hole completes my rainy day attire… and with those, i added in accents of a dark teal. these colors together — deep brown, crimson, teal and khaki — all look *so* nice together (at least, imho! ;P) and really look like autumn to me. more subdued colors, in richer tones, work so well for fall.. and, as a whole, i really like the way this look turned out!

shades of gray

not *fifty*, but just a few. ;P

09.23.2012

so! bff vivi && i raced to g field the other day when we saw these new beth ankle booties released. and we both, once we stopped drooling all over the demos, snagged ’em in gray and black. we could not resist playin’ dress up with them and thus… these looks were born.

these boots are *so* great for fall — which the weather for me in my rl is lookin’ more and more like autumn — and they’re designed to perfection. the laces, metal && soles are all color-change no matter which color of boot you pick up.. and the overall shape and texturing on these is just wonderful.

09.23.2012

the booties were also released with a set of floral-patterned tights (which are set out @ the ridiculously affordable price of just *50L* per color!) which vivienne is wearing here in the black-and-gray combo. and this look she put together here, with a longer tunic (from villena) and leggings and boots all works together in a trendy, but casual outfit. comfy, but still cute!

09.23.2012

i decided to take the boots in a different direction — dressing them “up” a little bit with lots o’ layers. a short-sleeved lace cami (from sn@tch) underneath a cropped mesh top i grabbed from ison… and i, too, am wearin’ tights (from izzie’s) with my shorter pencil-style skirt from mon tissu.

and, because we’re best friends && it’s just what we do, we’re both wearing pink and purple versions of the necklaces by maxi gossamer from the arcade gatcha event. mine was actually a gift from vivi (making it even more special, d’aww ❤) and provided not only a nice pop of color amidst all the black and gray, but also gives a best friends necklace effect.

and yes, you’re all welcome to “aawww~!” with me. ;D

virtual closet

keeping my virtual closet tamed is an arduous task. there are so many talented content creators out there on the grid these days that trying to limit myself seems… almost foolish. there’s too many awesome things out there to wear and to see and to *hoard* in my inventory, that calling myself a shopaholic..

09.21.2012

..is really an understatement.

if you remember not so long ago, i took on the job of organizing my inventory. at the time, in january, i’d whittled my inventory number down to a mere 21k. and it was *awesome*. i could easily find things, i had everything sorted in folders && subfolders, and i didn’t have the unnecessary clutter of older, unused items hanging around. they were boxed up or deleted and it was a beautiful thing!

i kept up with it for quite some time — making sure i immediately unboxed everything i bought && then organized it down into my inventory appropriately. i kept a folder of things i wanted to blog separate and, once i had blogged it, i moved it down into the rest of my inventory. but unfortunately…. the habit didn’t last.

a few “meh, i’ll do it later” excuses and suddenly… my inventory was out of control. my number steadily increased while the organization decreased. things piled up in my objects folder, everything was in disarray, and it was *really* hard to find items unless i searched for them by name. the longer i put it off, the worse it got, until it.. again… was a large task to undertake.

but! after getting completely tired of losing track of my stuff, i put on my big girl pants and tucked in to reorganizing. my inventory is, once more, a beautiful thing!

09.21.2012

while doing these clean-outs, i’ve discovered things (or re-discovered them, i suppose, is more accurate) i’d completely forgotten i had. like this panda necklace, for instance, from izzie’s.. i couldn’t tell you when i bought it, but it’s *adorable*. and i’m sad it got lost in the depths of my wardrobe for so long!

and older purchases are not the only things i found… this hooded jacket, from pumpkin, is a more recent acquisition. and i love it. i live in hoodies in my real life, and i could not say no to this pretty pink color, but. when i grabbed it, it quickly sunk into the mass of other folders and other items i’d bought and even though it was not long ago at *all*.. i totally forgot about it. but since my inventory is back in order, i found it && have been happily wearing it around in world for the last couple of days.

i even went so far as to make sure i organized things i bought in bulk. there is a sale going on right now @ elikatira where *everything* is an amazing 70% off. believe me, i went and splurged on *tons* of stuff — hair i’ve had my eye on, styles i already own but in different colors, shooooooes(!) — and as soon as a teleported back home? i made sure i opened things up and dragged them into their correct folders. because styles like the one i’m wearing here are far too cute to leave to the bottomless pit, right?

so! if you’ve been putting off organizing your own inventory like i was, let me kindly remind you to start now! i promise you’ll thank me later~
