when the collection @ the dressing room rolled over && new stuffs appeared, i knew i *had* to have this headband from la gyo


not want, but neeeeeeeeeed. how cute, right?! jewels + kitty cat ears = so adorable, vixxie can’t even stand it. this band has been glued to my head for the last few days and i just could not wait to put together a look so i could blog them.

needless to say, i highly recommend you go grab these while they’re out and discounted!


so i grabbed a cute pink sweater from mon tissu, a pair of the *new* mesh trousers from coldlogic (that are on sale, along with the rest of the store — but today is the *last day*!), and a bubblegum prop from pink fuel that i’ve been wanting forever and finally had an excuse to buy.. and put together a cute, casual outfit to match my new cat ears. i am seriously in love with this headband, but the rest of my look is pretty cute too i must say. ;p

and of course, the backdrop for my pics today is just as cute — after seeing juicy cafe on juicybomb, i knew i eventually had to visit to snap some photos. the build is delightfully cluttered && a wonderful setting for photographs, definitely take a tp there if you’ve not visited~

got milk?

my friend kystria saw me earlier, in this outfit, and told me i looked like a country cutie. ❤❤ i thought i looked more like i am gonna paint ALL the houses! and do so while looking adorable, but the term country cutie is much, much more appealing~

so i found a fitting sim, hooked a *fresh* carton of katat0nik chocolate milk under my arm (’cause, y’know, i totally milked that chocolate cow myself), and embraced my inner country.


i absolutely love these overalls i picked up at elly — not only are they a comfy sort of cute, but the tiniest peek of booty make ’em sexy too. i saw them on flickr && made a mental note to go pick ’em up when i could figure out something nice to wear with them.

this *new* bandana’d hair from wasabi pills provided that perfect excuse to look a li’l bit country.. and when i snagged this 1L t-shirt && manicure set in a bright, cheerful orange from rezipsa loc, i knew exactly what i’d be wearing with those overalls.


but, of course, i couldn’t go without adding in some vixxie accessories to the look — these awesome dia de los muertos inspired sneakers (that were actually from a fi fridays sale a week or two ago, but i’m hoping they are available at the k{rea} mainstore for you to still grab!), combined with a set of facial piercings from hebenon vial that’s having a *30L* closing sale, && a tattoo from my beloved para designs added just enough *me* back in.

plus, okay. how can you not feel cute when holding an oversized carton of smiling chocolate milk? smiling chocolate milk that has *eyelashes*? it’s so, so adorbs && bff vivi and i spent a large portion of our night last night.. feeding the katat0nik gatchas @ lloyd trying to get all the various varieties and colors of milk. there’s necklace versions too, but the larger dolls were far too cute not to wear.

so today, bff vivi && i were *determined* to do something. something romantic, something fun, something.. befitting of the day. usually, she and i aren’t all super excited over valentine’s day… because, really, you should be showing the people you love just how much you love them *everyday* rather than just once a year… but once we recruited two of our friends to go out with us for the evening, just for fun, we both became increasingly enthused about vday.

we decided to get all girlied up, in pink and red, and be.. festive. cute. pretty. and i think we succeeded…


hearts and bows and chocolates and bright red and soft pink. very valentines indeed!

we were expecting our friends, allarik and braden, to follow suit. i mean, it *is* valentine’s day, and even though we didn’t set a dress code.. it’s definitely not out of the ordinary for us to be anticipating… say… a nice suit. maybe a tux? shiny shoes, pinstriped slacks, a flower pinned to the lapel. y’know, something nice && dapper.

instead, we got..


..two smug boys in jeans, sneakers && hoodies. grr.

the guys, apparently, were not so excited about valentine’s day as vivienne && i were. and they didn’t even expect us to be *doing* much of anything, much to our dismay. but vivi and i were thinking about spending a romantic night dancing, maybe at a jazz club, and make it a *real* date for the evening. our companions, on the other hand.. not so much.

so vivienne and i had to do a li’l.. convincing.


a few romantic poses seemed to do the trick rather nicely…


…and turned the tides in our favor.

after a few snuggles here ‘n’ there, suddenly our dates seemed *much* more eager to do all things romantic. it’s a wonder how easily they were convinced. ;p

and even though they’re certainly not *dressed* for the occasion, at least allarik && braden are much more compliant. now all we need is a nice club to hit up, where we can finish the night off the way we originally intended to!


i hope everyone else has a lovely evening! happy valentine’s dayyyy~~ ❤❤❤

lime green, hot pink && teal.. i’d say that’s pretty blindingly bright, what say you?


i really, really missed bubblegum weekends. it’s fun for a change to run around with kool-aid colored hair! and i guess gogo && i were on the same wavelength when it came to bubblegum weekends this round, ’cause we kiiiinda match! but this *insanely bright* and adoooorable lingerie set from katatonik out @ the crush on you event was far too cute to pass up. even if i wasn’t tryin’ to do lingerie && nothin’ but until vday, this set would have found its way into my inventory. i *love* the colors, i love all the accessories (there’s li’l attachable bows for just about everywhere! \o/) && i love the fact that you get exactly 342348 pieces to wear the set in different ways.


i decided to go lime for this post.. just because i am fairly certain i’ve *never* worn green hair in world. ;X and the *new* mesh hair i’m wearing from exile was *perfect* for it — i adore exile’s textures, but this green was so vibrant and so happy and actually matched that i decided green was a good choice for this week. plus the fact that this hair is mesh means i pretty much fell in love with it instantly. and the name of it not only got this song stuck in my head, but also made me pine *so hard* for some warmer weather. i know, as soon as it gets here, i’ll be wishin’ for snow && ice.. but man. i just got several inches of snow today in my rl and i am desperate for some sunshine and warmth!

at least in sl, i can have endless summer if i really want (and can run around the entire grid in mah underpants && not freeze my tatas off)… but waaaaaaaant in my rl too, damnit!

the cuter side of zombies

the 6th edition of the zombie popcorn hunt kicked off on the first of the month.. and bff vivi && i have been slowly grabbin’ goodies from our favorite stores in the last few days. it’s been rather nice to wander into some of my fave places to peep new releases and then stumble upon a hunt prize in the process. it’s always awesome when my usual stores offer freebies!

but while typically, my favorite items in the zombie popcorn hunts have always been the gory.. the bloody… the dead && the decaying, this round.. there was a surprising amount of *cute* included. so vivienne && i decided to show off some of the more adorable things we snagged on this hunt rather than the bits more befitting of the hunt’s name. ;D


the looks we put together, and even in the bit o’ redecoration of our living room, use lots of freebies courtesy of the hunt. the full list of stores, slurls && hints can be found right here if you’d like to see the rest of the participating brands.. ’cause while we’ve included a bunch here, there are even *more* prizes we didn’t show off. this hunt is always awesome — the prizes are never too terribly hard to find, the loot you get is always generous, and there was a nice mixture of my favorite stores && places unknown to me on the list.


as far as what vivienne && i are wearing…

my hunt goodies include the top from koketka, the valentine’s day inspired suspenders from rezipsa loc, the pretty lavender-jeweled necklace from concrete flowers, the baby blue ‘n’ pink ballet flats from severed garden, the vibrant purple eyeshadow from kosh, the knuckle-wide rings from pididdle, the purple and green nails from virtual insanity && the gorgeous peach-colored *mesh* eyes from mayfly.

vivienne is wearing the hunt prize sweater from paper doll, the chained belt from loulou&co, a red and black version of the eye shadows from kosh, the glittery nails from izzie’s && the sunglasses/necklace combo from lutimez.

all the super cute phone-photo poses we’re using here are hunt prizes too, from what next!

but… well. this week, up until vday, is supposed to be nothin’ but lingerie… so i couldn’t resist snappin’ two more photos. one, of the hunt prize undies from damned that we both grabbed (as well as the tattoo you can see below that was hidden by vivi’s sweater, from vestigium, which is *also* a hunt gift!) so vivienne and i would still be participating in the 12 days of lingerie challenge, and two… of the home decor items we picked up while on the hunt too, cause having some li’l valentine-related decorations for *free* is just as nice as dressing yourself in an entire new outfit with just hunt goodies!


the heart-shaped topiary, the painting and easel, the bottle of wine, the three sets of bird pictures, the candles && the vday the blocks and sign were *all* hunt prizes! \o/ lots && lots of nice-quality, easy-to-find freebies in this post… and if you haven’t gone huntin’ yet, you’ve got until the 15th to do so! it’s *seriously* worth it, take my word for it~

red && black


one of my favorite sims to snap piccies on is innsmouth. the entire sim is run down, dark && wonderfully frightening (especially the ambient sound!). it’s one of those places where just wandering around, looking at the build, completely inspires snapshots… it’s definitely a must-see if you’ve not been yet!

so bff vivi && i decided to head there in themed attire to take some photos. …well, not even *some*.. more like *a lot*, but. i decided to pair it down to just a few for blogging purposes. ;p


my look actually all started with makeup, believe it or not.. i built my outfit around the new leopard print tattoo eyemakeup from cstar limited. you can wear just the leopard spots to either side of the eye, or wear the spots with a deep smokey eye as well (which is how i’m wearing it here) && i looooooove it. there are a *ton* of colors to pick from, so of course along with the black.. i picked up the neon hot pink set as well, but they are in limited quantities! and @ *100L* a pop, these are going so so fast. if you love the leopard eye like i do, then go right now && snag a set for yourself. go. gogogogogogogo!

i really could have gone into leopard overload, but decided to only match the spots on my eyes with these sheer leggings from izzie’s, layered underneath the jacket && dress combo from aoharu and whippet & buck. some tall boots, a gun strapped to my thigh, && a freshly-fed vampiric skin from pink fuel make me look like some undercover demonic .. cop. but! at least it’s a cute undercover demonic cop? with some *fierce* leopard eye shadow! \o/


vivienne‘s look all centers around the *adorable* blackheart dress set from katatonik. there are so many options with this ensemble, it’s almost unreal. you get the dress, the stockings, the gloves && a li’l lopsided top hat (which is srsly so cute x3 even if vivi didn’t wear it!). then you get a sheer version of the top part of the dress, that you can wear as a shirt on it’s own, a sheer version of the skirt, *and* the matching lingerie. @_@ soooo very nice for the price, there’s a ton of mixin’ && matchin’ in there with all the pieces you get.

she’s also wearing the *new* hair from exile out @ the dressing room blue. this hair is just… all waves and deliciousness. the headband/bow combo is color-change && i adore perfectly messy it is. i got the pack at tdr blue too, even if it doesn’t come in my *preferred* blonde color, just because it was too cute to pass up. maybe i’ll be brunette for a day just to wear it since i love it so much, ’cause apparently i have no problems goin’ from blonde to pitch black. ;p

oh, and i *did* mention vivi’s outfit comes with the lingerie…

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

click to see it larger @ flickr!

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~

click to see it larger @ flickr!

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!

click to see it larger @ flickr!

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!).

click to see it larger @ flickr!

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~

pink && gold

towards the end of december, almost everything you see is red && green. but who says those have to be the *only* two colors for the “holiday season”?!

click to see it larger @ flickr!

bff vivi and i happen to think sparkly gold && deep magenta work just as well. 😉

even though she && i live on a very beachy sim, complete with water right outside our front door… we decided we’d get into the holiday spirit and transform one of our rooms into *everything christmas*. it may not match, exactly, with the theme of the rest of our house (or on our sim, for that matter), but it looks cute! and thanks to lisp, where there’s all kinds of 10L holiday goodies to be had outside the store, and to ancayi for the centerpiece of our room with the tree && train combo, i think we happened to pull off the holiday explosion quite well despite our summery house! \o/

so naturally, we had to dress appropriately… for, perhaps, an impromptu christmas party?

click to see it larger @ flickr!

sure, you can wear the default red dress to a holiday get together… but when ricielli is having a *15L* discounted “hunt” (and i use the word “hunt” very loosely — all the prizes are super obvious && easy to find just by walking around the store! score!) and one of the prizes is a super sexy hot pink dress.. well.. y’know… pink can be holiday too, damnit! the dress she’s wearing here is one of said prizes, and the sparkly bodice, short hemline + the lacey overlay on it totally make it party appropriate. pair it with some seriously *sex kitten* hair from truth, some matching heels from n-core && some knee-high socks from g field to keep your legs warm ;p and you are good to celebrate!

click to see it larger @ flickr!

the sequined dress i’m wearing is also a prize in the ricielli hunt and maaaaaaaan is it short! i don’t mind mini dresses that are only barely long enough to be considered a dress more than a long top, but in order to be even remotely discreet.. i decided to pair it with some *free to group members* leggings from insanya just for modesty’s sake. haha. i don’t normally go for everything supah shiny, but when trying on this dress… i dunno.. it just screamed festive at me. and if there’s ever an excuse to break out the sequins, around the holidays is perfect for it.

plus, i needed *something* to wear these glittery heels with! they’re the same coquette heels from n-core that vivienne is wearing — only covered all over in a complimentary shimmer. sooooo cute! and these gold ones were probably my favorite out of the bunch~

and, just in case you were curious….

click to see it larger @ flickr!

..after all the champagne && punch was gone, and all the guests went home, yes the party kept on goin’! and not only that, but vivi && i conveniently matched our undies 😉 to our outfits! so what if we decided to have a “slumber party” in the middle of the afternoon?!

besides.. nothin’ says christmas like some *25L* gift-wrapped panties from katatonik, lemme tell ya..

88 is a magic number

collabor88 is an awesome thing. like, so awesome i wish i could give a big ole hug to *all* the designers participating. granted, it made my inventory overflow.. but in really, really good ways. \o/

you could give yourself an entire makeover for very few lindens at this sale. there’s shapes, eyes, hair, skins, shoes && a ton of cute clothes. on top of furniture and poses, too. @_@ all for so cheap, it’s almost redonkulous.

bff vivi && i were there the first night it opened, scoopin’ up cheapies.. so i thought we ought to show off some of the stuffs we acquired. any excuse to use some super cute gliteratti poses (which, btw, is having a SALE atm!! weeee~).

click to see it larger @ flickr!

grixdale has a goodbye pack set out @ collabor88 and it is stuffed full of goodies. several dresses && makeup tattoos… makes me both happy and sad. but the dresses vivi && i are both wearing are from the grixdale pack and are *super* cute. so girly in pastels, with frills and adorable patterns… and the lovely texture && prim work that tyr rozenblum is so very good at.

and our hair… it has been all over *everything*, and with good reason. both of these styles are from elikatira && are just so pretty. my favorite of the two is definitely the one vivi is wearing, it’s so soft and whispy and all the colors are just .. gorgeous. and for 88L per color pack? vivi && i totally stocked up — i even bought colors i don’t even wear because it’s just so cute.

click to see it larger @ flickr!

boom and whippet and buck also have awesome (and inexpensive) items at collabor88. the top vivi is wearing is actually part of a set of *two* that you get from boom — all in bright ice cream inspired colors. and the top from w&b that i’m wearing is actually something i debated back and forth on buying. i wasn’t sure if it was me, but it was cute, and then i couldn’t pick a color… but i am *so* glad i eventually bought it. it even has poofy sleeves! who can really, honestly say no to poofy sleeves?! when they are nice as these, i know i sure can’t. ;p

if you haven’t been, you should definitely go. it runs for a month, until september 8th, when the collection will change. it makes me excited, if it’s a recurring sale, ’cause the first round? was a total win imho!

every once in a while, bff vivi && i like to run around the grid as fauns. it’s a beautiful thing when you wake up one day and say, “self.. i think today would be a good day to spawn some goat legs and horns..” and, y’know, it’s *actually possible*.

only in second life, hmm?

epic has become a favorite of ours for all things faun && the newly released sock’d faun feets are so so cute. they come in an entire slew of pretty colors and offer two different leg types, as well as different colored garters && hooves. they are adorable and we both had a li’l fit over them. i totally need every. single. color. ’cause a faun likes to match her feets to her clothes, right?! ;p

vivienne was immediately drawn to the baby pink color, so she dressed around her legs (ahahaha xD) in varying shades of matching pink. her halter is also from epic, which meant the color palette matched the pink on her socks.. and that’s always a win, and the jacket she’s wearing over it is from grixdale. i am still sad face 😦 about grixdale closing, but vivi && i both have visited the sale many many times so far. slowly the entire store will make it’s way into my inventory && i am *totally* okay with that. the hoodies are especially nice because, quite literally, the prim pieces disappear when you put them on. depending on lighting there’s *no* seam between avatar clothing && prim attachments, no color difference… absolutely flawless. ❤

i’ve been dying for an excuse to buy a pair of the new high-waisted shorts from the secret store && showing off my legs was the perfect reason. ;3 i picked up purple because i love this shade of lavender, so i decided to be all matchy matchy with vivi and dress in shades of violet.

the tee i’m wearing is *new* from onyx wear && was a nice surprise. the bottom half includes an optional undershirt that’s color change and i.. was not expecting it. i thought i had to buy the colors separate (silly me!), so when i bought the shirt.. and actually looked? talk about *squee* moment. options you didn’t think you had but actually do have is aaaaaaawesome. there’s a ton of colors for the undershirt, and the actual tee comes in black or white. you can wear some extra cuffs on the arms too that are color change, which is nice, but i liked just the white sleeves myself.

besides, it might’ve been purple overload with extra lavender on my arms and nobody wants that!
