lazy

so! i’ve showed off my new bedroom already && today, i’m posing in part of my living room…

11.12.2012

bff vivi and i have been putting a few last finishing touches on our new home.. y’know, the little details that make things look more “lived in”. and since our living room is so huge (ie, there’s enough room for a full living room set while *still* leaving half the room undecorated), she and i decided to put down a cute dining room set… even though we don’t have a kitchen. ;P only in sl!

and so my look for today is very appropriate for lounging around my house, something comfy but still cute.. while i rez and re-rez candles and books and paintings and picture frames and flower pots.

11.12.2012

this cute cream-colored mesh top i’m wearing is *new* from sakide. there’s lots of new releases at sakide, all of which are awesome separates. ponchos(!), jeans, stockings, boots.. but these v-neck tees were probably my favorites out of the bunch. they are great for layering, which is something i *love* to do in autumn, but still season-appropriate enough on their own to totally work for fall. and i liked this khaki color for how versatile it is to work with!

i know it’s kiiinda hard to see, but check out my necklace! it’s *adorable* && is out @ collabor88 from intrigue co. little potted cactus plants, each dotted with small flowers.. how cute is that!? the set comes with a matching ring (that i *am* wearing here, even if i’m a derp and didn’t photograph it properly :/) and earrings, where each choice has different colored flower accents. so fun && so *cute*, i love accessories like these!

today was kind of a lazy day, i mean.. i didn’t even bother putting on shoes! but i still like this look for how real it is. i wouldn’t be moving furniture around in my rl in a skirt, heels and flowy top.. so i don’t do it in my sl, either~

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~

fall

where, exactly, did september go? is it just me or did this entire month just fly on by? not that i’m complaining or anything, i mean… tomorrow is october 1st && all.. and only brings me closer to halloween (aka, my absolute favorite holiday of the year!), but seriously! september seemed to go by really, *really* fast!

09.30.2012

so i’m embracing the incoming autumn today~

*discounted* autumn at that — almost everything i’m wearing clothing-wise is on sale or heavily discounted!

this two-tone sweater is from milk motion && is set out @ the mainstore for a tdr-esque discount. the cropped hem && realistic texturing made this a no-brainer, i grabbed it immediately. and i love it, especially for how well it works with a more layered look like i’m wearing here with a (freebie!) tank underneath from jane.

09.30.2012

the mesh jeans i’m wearing here are from crash republic and i originally saw them on oh ohna‘s blog. they are fabulous — they fit my shape *perfectly* and come with both scrunched and rolled-up cuffs. they are currently discounted to a mere *95L* until tomorrow (october 1st) and are so worth picking up. there’s a nice selection of neutral and decidedly not neutral colors and i adore the shape of these~ the price + the fit on these make them an insta-fave in my inventory right now.

the boots.. these lovely boots from maitreya. they are a group-only discount from a little while ago but last i checked are still available for the smaller price… and given the fact that the group is *free* to join make them even more awesome. this soft, camel color is wonderful for more subdued autumn palettes and, as always with items from maitreya, the scrunchy shape and textures are reach-out-and-touch-it beautiful.

and, lastly, this gorgeous skin from pink fuel is out @ a steep discount for the rummage sale on the atomic island sim. ploom, aura, atomic, riddle, paper.doll… and of course, pink fuel, all have older items set out for some *very* nice prices for the next week and i could not say no to the set of elly skins offered there. a few are older event-only skins and one, i believe, was a hunt prize… but i somehow missed out on them the first time around so i was very happy to add them to my collection.

lots of awesome discounts out there on the grid these days! it makes both my inner shopaholic and my linden balance happy. embracing the chillier temps in second life is super easy when generous designers set out discounted goodies for sale~

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~

coffee && cigarettes

04.12.2012

the third annual pose fair is starting up soon… on *april 15th* to be specific… and i am so excited for it!

as someone who takes a lot of pictures in world, i honestly rely on the creativity of all the talented pose makers out there on the grid to help me make my snapshots look the best they can. it doesn’t matter how nice an outfit of mine looks.. if i’m not using the right poses to show it off or compliment it, then i’m just not doing my job!

so having a whole event filled to the brim with poses, and only poses (from over *100* brands, no less!), makes an amateur photographer like me all kinds of giddy~

04.12.2012

all of the poses i used in my pics for today, including the cup o’ coffee (that i could seriously go for in my rl right now…), will be new && out @ pose fair this year from glitterati. i practically live on coffee, i am a certified caffeine junkie, so these poses were totally made for me.

i’m also showing off some more of my haul from collabor88 — this cowl-neck sweater is from kyoot, the vintage cigarette holder is from the sea hole (and actually comes with earrings and a bracelet as a set!) && the pretty black ‘n’ white bracelet is just one of many color choices offered by earthstones. and since i was already in mostly monochrome, i decided to pair it all with a *mesh* black and gray skirt i picked up from cold logic, some gartered socks from league (which are some of my favorite stockings in my inventory), a gray purse from toki doki && a pair of saddle shoes from coco.

nothing goes better with black than white… nothing goes better than coffee with a cig (especially in the mornings, whoo boy)… and nothing goes better than vixxie and new poses! there’s just a few more days until pose fair starts && i cannot waaaaaiiiiiit!! \o/

maitreya mesh

so it seems that… the things i get most excited about these days are mesh releases from my favorite brands. even though mesh went grid-wide last summer, it’s still *new* and exciting and i’m still sort of getting a feel for the types of mesh clothing, accessories && hair that i prefer. some things, i like better in regular ole prims && sculpties.. while some other things, i definitely like better in mesh.

with every release of new mesh goodies, i’m seeing things get better and better. and the latest release of mesh stuffs from maitreya had bff vivi && i *so* excited to demo (and buy.. *cough*).

03.27.2012

skirts, leggings, boots, jeans… there was lots of awesome released! i went practically *insane* over the new mesh jeans, while vivi had her eye on the leggings (since she picked up the similar pair out @ the epoch event) and skirts. but we both came out of maitreya happily with our respective purchases && put together two looks to show ’em all off!

03.27.2012

the jeans… hnnngghh! are just wonderful. i love the colors they come in, i love the zipper detail on the cuffs, and i *really* love the way my ass looks in the jeans. that’s an important part of purchasing jeans, in any life, and the ones from maitreya do not disappoint in the booty department. 😉 i still seem to have a larger leg gap than normal with these jeans too, just like i had with the mon tissu pair, but in all honesty… the more i wear mesh jeans, from either brand, the less i care about the “dreaded” thigh gap. for me, personally, it’s not as bad as it could be && does not make me love these jeans (or the mon tissu pair) any less.

03.27.2012

vivienne was immediately drawn to the bright *hot pink* color in these leggings (i wonder if, perhaps, i’m rubbing off on her? ;p), so she decided to go all over pink by pairing the maitreya leggings and skirt with a top she grabbed from celoe in a matching shade. and with the addition of white slink ankle boots, the blocks of crisp white and contrasting vibrant color looks very.. 80s to me && i *like* that, a lot. she was able to layer the leggings and skirt together by wearing one size smaller in the leggings than she normally would, but wearing her normal size in the skirt, and they worked together nicely without any strange clipping.

we both completed our looks with mesh hair, too — hers from magika and mine, from exile — and some accessories from love soul, amorous (which is having a 50% off *sale* right now!) && mandala.

kinda casual, but springy && meshy outfits for today! if you’ve not gone && demo’d the hell out of the new maitreya items, it’s worth it to try! and there’s a *free* gift set out for group members right by the room full of all the new releases — one of the mesh pencil skirts, in a lovely pattern, is the gift and is totally worth snagging while you can!

springtime pastels

to me, you just cannot have spring without a li’l bit of pretty pastel. it’s probably the fact that easter is spring, and easter usually means soft pink and baby blue and peach (and cadbury creme eggs!), but i always associate the beginning of spring with lighter colors.

03.15.2012

apparently, so does bff vivi!

we decided to girly it up today with colors befitting of this time of year… in some light green, lavender && lemon chiffon yellow~

as often as i wear bold, bright hues.. and as often as i wear all black, i can’t deny how lovely the lighter side of the spectrum can be… and how positively *feminine* you can feel while wearing them. there’s something undeniably… *ladylike* about wearing something that’s softer in color && it’s a nice change of pace for me. i don’t do the whole… ruffly fabrics && dainty colors thing a lot, in my first life or in my second life, so it was good to know i could.. if i wanted to. ;p

03.15.2012

while vivienne’s look all centers around the colors found in her *gorgeous* knee-high boots (from g field, at fashion for life).. mine was painstakingly (hah!) put together with pieces i picked up at collabor88. not only do i love the super steep discount found at collabor88, but the fact that usually there is a universal color palette used throughout all the items offered there. it makes picking up something from one designer.. then another… and another… to make a cohesive outfit so, so easy.

the top i’m wearing is from ufo, while the skirt is just one of many color choices set out by the sea hole. i like the contrast of the rougher fabric (adorned with girly li’l flowers!) of the skirt when paired with the delicate texturing on the top.. and how easily the shades work together, especially when accessorized with the necklace i picked up from collabor88 by yummy.

vivi’s look is just as pretty, if not moreso, with that stunning shade of pastel yellow. the jacket, from ricielli is a different sort of feminine — a polished, tailored sort — and it matches the floral folded-over top on her boots *perfectly*. her look also dresses up a simple, plain (and free!) tank top && her favorite pair jeans rather nicely.

so! girly-girl looks for today! it may not be my everyday, but there definitely is a softer side to vixxie. ;D i enjoy challenging myself to create looks that are outside my own personal realm of normal && it’s nice when it actually *works*. i can totally pull off a ~lady~ just as well as the next girl, riiiiiiiiight? …. right?!

happy

what makes you happy?

02.22.2012

pink hair makes me happy. whale-shaped gloves *definitely* make me happy. mesh eyelashes… make me so happy i could squeal. birthdays make me happy……

oh, and speaking of birthdays 😉 (you like that awesome segue!? bahahah~).. my rl birthday is *tomorrow*, the 23rd! \o/ and i am so, so excited to celebrate.

sometimes, you just need a good excuse to be goofy and let off some steam. to be unabashedly happy && smile until your cheeks hurt. to laugh, to be loud, to have a fantastic time. and with the help of bff vivi and a few of my other rl friends (what? they exist!! ;P), i plan to do just that!

02.22.2012

it seemed only fitting to pose for a few bloggity pics being just as happy, silly && smiley in my sl as i am in my rl. birthdays often make you feel *old*, and sad subsequently, but i am just as excited for mine now as i was when i was a little kid. and it’s simply because i’ll be celebrating with my amazing friends, some good food, and a drink (or twelve).

and there’s cake… cake is *always* a good excuse to be happy!

pandas

the seasons gatcha winter event started the other day (the 14th, to be exact) && runs almost ’til the end of the month (the 28th!). there are *tons* of adorable wintery things there — scarves, mittens, ear muffs, more scarves, sweaters… pretty much anything you’d ever need to feel all warm ‘n’ cozy.

bff vivi && i have been poking around the gatcha machines since the event opened, trying our luck in getting items in our preferred colors… but by far, our favorite gatcha item (and the one that’s made the most of our lindens disappear) is the one set out by illusory.

just *look* at how adorable these animal scarves are! *-*

01.20.2012

between the two of us, we have the entire set just by feeding the machine over && over.. trying to get all the rare pink ones. the white bear scarf is super cute, as is the orange tiger version too, but the pink panda.. the pink panda. oh it is insanely cute!

01.20.2012

i couldn’t help but make an outfit around this scarf… i mean, i may have squealed out loud when the gatcha gods smiled upon me && i *finally* won it. just look at its li’l ears.. and its li’l eyes.. i am in love with it. ❤❤❤

so i dressed to suit the scarf, with a white dress (that i’m wearing as a long-sleeved tee here) from sakide && some gorgeous mesh pants i’ve been meaning to blog from celoe. i was also lucky enough to win the *rare* bunny ear muffs from the gatcha by willow, which is another machine i fully intended on feeding lindens until i went broke trying to get the rare pair. i *did* get the owl pair as well (which look adorable with the brown bear illusory scarf, btw~) && i still want the skunk set too… but the rabbit-y muffs are adorable enough that i am appeased. … for now.

01.20.2012

vivienne dressed to match her scarf as well — going all over black-and-white with some wellington boots from needful things, a furry keychain from love soul (which is still having their half off sale, just fyi!), && another gatcha-win necklace from undefined lilies. her panda might not be pink like mine is, but he is just as cute! i love the way these are textured — they really do look soft and fuzzy and warm. and for only *50L* a try, it’s soooo worth trying your luck for one (or a few *cough* like we did) just cause they are so. damned. adorable.

a mouse in the house

eep! a mouse?!

01.15.2012
click to see it larger @ flickr!

can you spot it!? ;p

so it’s been a li’l while since i showed off my living room… new year’s eve, in fact, was the last time i posed for bloggy pics in this room. and since the christmas season is sadly loo~oong over, bff vivi && i decided to redecorate with less holiday and more us. and today, i thought it was complete enough to pose here for some snapshots!

our living room (which, to be truthful, is actually our second living room… the other “sitting area” hasn’t been changed since we finished decorating it after we got our land, ahah. seems like only *this* living room gets makeovers frequently!) is set up with furniture && various items o’ decor from several different places. the striped teal rug && coffee table, complete with the bowl of fruit and newspapers, are both from cheeky pea. the snowy window and two jar candles are from what next. the blue flowered jug, mustachioed lightbulbs and the two insanely cute bear mugs are from lisp. the *mesh* pink couch, end table, lamp, plant, and yellow candelabra are from tromp loeil @ collabor88. aaaaaand the three li’l kokeshi doll pictures are from callie cline, also out @ collabor88.

i really wish i could remember where the marilyn monroe painting was from, or where we got the large yellow rug too. i’d like to give those credits as well.. unfortunately, i cannot. ;(

but! thankfully, everything matched the vivid neon color palette we were workin’ with. \o/ i love our blindingly bright living room! someday, i’ll have to actually take the time to snap some pics of the rest of our house, ehe~

01.15.2012

soooo, i put together a stay at home ‘n’ laze about on the couch kinda look for today. of course, in matching hot pink — with some gray && black mixed in as well. and it all centers around this *adorable* free gift for group members hat from toxic kitty. i am *such* a sucker for super cute things… and anything with a li’l animal face on it (ie, see the mugs in the first pic from lisp! x3) will inevitably find it’s way into my inventory. i was so stoked to find this hat for free, you should definitely go grab it ’cause i’ve no idea how long it’ll be out!

i worked in a *new* tank top from onyx wear, a sweater from jane && boots from love soul.. both of which i picked up *on sale* (i’m not sure if the jane sale is still going on ;.; but i *do* know that the love soul sale still is! gooooo!), and some accessories from amorous, hod && yummy.

so what if i wear a winter hat inside… it’s cute, okay!? and i honestly don’t think i could’ve taken it off even if i wanted to, it seems mysteriously glued to my head. it’s almost as if… i like it too much to take it off or something~ ;3
