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*!

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.

haute

there’s a new round of horror haute (that started today, the 25th!) and it includes a *new* mesh release from haus of darcy

08.25.2012

..perhaps it is hard to tell, but it makes me suuuper excited~

hod makes my absolute favorite body jewelry — i pretty much wear this brand exclusively when i want piercings (which, let’s be honest, i *always* want piercings). so new releases make me especially tingly… and these new earring sets do not disappoint.

08.25.2012

the earrings you see here (best in the middle photo, click the pic to see it larger) are the latest release out for horror haute, called counterpart. the large black lobe gauge is the mesh piece, which makes me even *more* excited for perhaps some more meshy goodness from aydan darcy, but you don’t have to wear these piercings with this particular gauge. there’s another set included without the black round gauge that are made to be worn with other ear jewelry from hod — including the dragon spiral gauges i love so much. hence the counterpart name~

i am so glad hod has released earrings like these. i tend to lean towards wanting as many rings-in-one as i can get, so when i *do* wear hair where the ears are visible.. i get a whole lotta bang for my buck, so to speak. i’ve been wanting a piercing set like this to wear from my favorite brand && now, i have them. ❤❤

there’s also a set of tattoo layers included (not shown here) that add a little bit of an infected look to the piercings.. and you can see that here. these earrings are unisex, they’re new, and they are absolutely wonderful. go grab ’em while they are on sale!

frock

this new mesh frock from mon tissu is so, so cute. it’s both sexy && girly all at the same time and i *really* love the way it fits.

…but i’ll be damned if the word frock doesn’t make me think of nothing but salad fingers.

08.17.2012

“that’s a pretty looking frock on your body.”

/me gets the jibblies

aaaanyway, enough about creepy and disturbing cartoons (lest i seriously freak myself out here) and more on the dress!

there’s lots of color choice to be had, but i picked a nice neutral gray. and despite the flowy fabric, low neckline && general *daintiness* of this dress… i couldn’t help but wear it in a rather un-girly-like way: with combat boots! \o/

said combat boots are also *new* && from red mint.. and are all sorts of deliciousness.

08.17.2012

i chose to wear the black pair with my look for today, but i figured the other colors were just too awesome not to show off. the three i have here are an awesome rust, a silvery-white and of course, black — but you can see the rest of the color choices right here. each pair comes with a HUD that allows you to change the socks inside in a whole slew of colors, but the best part? you can change each sock separately — even though i didn’t do it here, you can have a teal sock on the left and a white sock on the right. really awesome for getting another pop of color on your feet~

08.17.2012

i paired the dress with a *group gift* mesh tote bag from auxiliary, some jewelry from both amorous and blitzed, a fantastically sexy and side-swept hair from exile && two pairs of gartered socks layered together from league and sn@tch. it’s simple, it’s comfortable, it’s easy to wear && it’s a nice mixture of both ladylike and.. decidedly not. i love it when i’m able to wear an article of clothing this way — while it looks awesome in the way the designer intended, i’m glad i can style it any way i please and it still looks lovely. well-made things tend to lend themselves to this and there is no denying that mon tissu’s garments are at the top of the list when it comes to all things well-made~

double dose

/me gently wipes the cobwebs away

ohay! long time, no bloggity, hmm?

yeah, it’s been a really long while since i last posted… things just got *way* hectic for me in my rl. shit happens from time to time && i am def not immune to it. buuuuu~uuut, i did have some time this week to catch up on things in sl, so i thought i’d finally get off my lazy ass and put together a blog post!

and it’s not just me in this post, oh no. i’ve got two looks for you from myself and one of those includes bff vivi.. i thought it was a fitting way to maybe get back into the swing of blogging~

first…

06.05.2012

..a look i put together long before i took my hiatus. this makes me a very, very bad blogger && for that i apologize! i uploaded the pics of this look to flickr months and months ago… and then never put a post together for it. so here it is, finally!

06.05.2012

polar bear hoodie, shark tee, and some bright hot pink. do you love it as much as i do? ’cause i gotta say, i love this look lots. i grabbed the tee from retro when i discovered them on a hunt aaaages ago. these tees were cute (each one was a different color w/ different animal motifs) and nicely textured… and sometimes i just cannot resist the cute. yes, this shark is cute.. don’t try to tell him otherwise~

the hood is mesh && i grabbed it from nacon’s on the marketplace. while i don’t recommend wearing a fuzzy hood and scarf in the middle of summer, it’s sl.. so i can do what i want! ;P it worked for the cutesy sort of look i was goin’ for and, as i said.. cannot resist the cute sometimes. i like the dark, grungy, and evil just as much as the next girl but there’s that part of me the just cannot say no to something with teddy bear ears. don’t judge me.

and for a more “recent” look, i dragged bff vivi in with me to pose..

08.11.2012

you never really know how much you miss out on when you’re away from sl. sure, i knew designers and sales and events would be goin’ on without me.. but i didn’t realize just how much there would be for me to catch up on! @_@ it was only a couple of months && i feel like i’ve missed out on yeeeeeears of awesome goodies.

so she ‘n’ i hit up a few of our favorite stores, browsed several of the events going on, and tried our best not to be overwhelmed.

08.11.2012

vivi built her cute && casual look all around this mesh tee she picked up @ collabor88, from tres blah. it’s perfectly tucked into her jeans and looks like a slouchy v-neck she’d steal from her boyfriend (if he let her into his closet, that is..). she looks comfy and yet still put together~

she’s also wearing a pair of flared jeans from maitreya, some fiiierce leopard heels (that were a freebie group gift!) from n-core, and a super cute owl necklace that’s also from collabor88 by maxi gossamer~

08.11.2012

my look also centers around somethin’ i grabbed at collabor88, this time from auxiliary. this sugar skull design won me over completely, but all of the designs were awesome enough to pick up.. especially at the nicely discounted price of a mere 88L.

i paired the tank with some mesh shorts i picked up from mon tissu && a pair of gorgeous sandals from celoe — both of which are in nice, neutral shades. the shorts have a subtle pinstripe, making them more visually interesting than a simple pair of white denim shorts, and the shoes….. oh there are no words for these shoes other than love. the textures are realistic and delicious, tinting was a breeze && i instantly fell in love with this taupe shade. if only i had a pair of these irl, siiigh~

plus! the prop && poses vivi and i are using here, from glitterati, are on *sale* right now. everything is discounted to 100L and i went ‘n scooped up a whole bunch of things i’ve had my eye on, this prop included. i’m always on the lookout for new props and new poses, especially ones that are unique, and i’ve always liked this hallway prop. i’m glad i was able to grab it for an amazing deal!

sooo, three looks… and *maybe* a return to blogging for vixxie? we’ll have to see how rl treats me, but i’m hoping i’ll be able to get back into it! i miss my blog (and i miss those of you that read it ❤ honestly!) and i hate feeling like i’m out of the loop. so much new stuff to grab! @___@

bunny hood

with rl as busy as it has been lately, it seems the only times i can get a moment to myself to take pics for my bloggity here.. are on the weekends. no me gusta. i’m hoping my free time gets a bit more ample here soon, otherwise i am gonna go a li’l insane methinks.

but at least i always have retail therapy in sl to make it aaaaall better~

06.03.2012

bff vivi && i hit up a few places over the weekend… and we both about *died* over these new mesh hoodies from aura, which are out @ the new round of fameshed. there were so many colors to pick from and each one has an adorable hood complete with long bunny ears attached.. vivienne and i could not say no. she picked a pretty purple shade, while i went with black and lime green, and both are so super cute! looove these!

06.03.2012

vivi decided to pair her hoodie with some denim shorts, from mon tissu, and a hair she also picked up at fameshed by wasabi pills. it’s simple and it’s short, but it’s *so* cute. i like the over-the-eye bangs and the short, whispy ends make this style just adorable.. and of course, my bff is just too cute for words to begin with. ❤❤

06.03.2012

i’m wearing my version of the sweatshirt with a pair of rolled-up jeans from tres blah, some flats from ufo that i snagged @ collabor88, a *gorgeous* updo from exile that’s discounted at the dressing room blue && a *dollarbie* headband from monso that’s offered at the bombi event. there’s lots of goodies at bombi if you haven’t gone.. including an entire wall of lucky boards and gifts/cheapies dotted around in several of the designer’s stalls. plus the build is sooo cute and so are the rest of the items there. definitely worth checkin’ out, if for no other reason than to stalk those lucky boards — the version on the boards of this headband i’m wearing, i will have you!!

pink && green

new skin from pink fuel(!!!!!), new really amusing jewelry from amorous && a new *freebie!* piercing set from haus of darcy… seems as if these designers want me to *die* of happiness.

05.28.2012

i’m a li’l late when it comes to the skin addiction event, but when i saw there was a new pink fuel skin there.. just waiting for me to grab it.. i *knew* i had to go. and i am in loooooove. ❤ i love these lips, i love the two makeup choices (there’s scene, which i’m wearing here with dark eyes and glossy lips, and classic which has a less dramatic eye but has *perfect* red lips), i just love this face. i’m not sure which skin i like more, this alena skin or the alyx skin mochi milena has been teasing us with, but either way.. i *cannot* wait for the full release of either one! /me foams at the mouth

the necklace i’m wearing, from amorous… well. if you clickie that picture and make it larger, you’ll be able to see the message on the pendant. and i am sure you’ll fully understand why it amuses me so. 😉

05.28.2012

and let us not forget… freebie piercings from hod! the set of 4 omega nose gauges are *freeeeeeee* for the men only hunt, which started on the 26th && only runs for *two weeks*. while the prizes are more geared towards the guys, aydan darcy included both large && small sizes of these piercings to make ’em easier to fit on the ladies, too. which makes me so happy, because these bright, rainbowy colors are something you don’t normally find in hod’s already unique piercings… so the fact that i can wear these too is totally appreciated.

and they are completely free! all you gotta do is find ’em (so if you need a hint as to the prize location, check here and good luck!)~

catch up

maaaaaaaaan.. rl has been kickin’ my ass lately. i figured after i moved that i’d have more time but nope, it doesn’t seem that way. between trying to unpack, dealing with intermittent internet (which is more frustrating than you can possibly imagine, for realsies) && trying to do *everything else* i normally do… it takes my sl-time down to about nada.

however!

this weekend has been kind to me && i found some time to blog a few things i’ve been meaning to blog for an entire *week* now. so yayyy for holiday weekends! \o/

05.26.2012

this pretty dress i’m wearing here is *new* from stellar and i absolutely *love* this white, blue && pink color-combo. it’s just so lovely — the kind of sun dress i could seriously live in during the warmer months of the year. it’s simple, but i like it that way… nothin’ is easier to wear than a cute, girly dress (especially when you take one look at your large virtual wardrobe && think “ugh i have *nothing* to wear!!”, amirite?).

i’m also wearing a *new* skin from candydoll today… which i’ve been wanting to show off here. this michelle face is all kinds of sweet && innocent, complete with a li’l dusting of freckles right across the nose (that i adore, btw). check her out!

05.26.2012

the talented rebeca dembo did somethin’ different with this skin this time — you get mix-and-match versions of her usual pretty makeups on the tattoo layer as well as a bare-faced skin to doll up. the lip color && eye shadow tatts are each separate, which adds *so* much customization it’s not even funny. i’m showing each of the lip colors above on the latte skin tone above, which range from soft and nude to bright and *pink*…

05.26.2012

…and here, in the caramel tone, are all of the eye shadows. smokey black, rich green, even a bright yellow. lots of choice && tons of ways to wear your favorite color combos.

05.26.2012

all of the skin tones are just gorgeous && each has its own set of make up tattoos (and each tone is sporting those freckles… i *did* mention i love those, right?). but there’s *also* hair bases, a no-brow skin, and layers for varying cup sizes as well. i really appreciate all of these options, it spoils me so. ❤

oh, and lastly! this hair! a *new* subscribo gift ponytail from truth.. in a delicious fat pack. it’s mesh && it’s *wonderful*.. and if you’ve not gotten it, brave the lag and smack the subscribo board!

events galore

it seems like there is never a shortage of events goin’ on in sl these days. whether it’s sales, discount stores, charity fundraisers, themed events… not that i’m complaining, of course (and neither is my wallet, lemme tell ya), but trying to hit ’em all up can be quite a task!

luckily, bff vivi is just as much of a *shopaholic* as i am.. and thus, we can conceivably take advantage of twice as many sales as we could on our own if we combined our shopping forces together~

05.21.2012

she && i have hit up quite a few events and sales lately.. so we thought it only fitting to show off our haul together!

05.21.2012

a new round of the my attic sale on the deck sim started up last night… including *lots* of our favorite brands. the pretty skin vivienne is wearing here, along with this *adorable* pigtail hair, are both @ my attic from ploom and are discounted to just *95L* a color/tone. i think it’s safe to say that vivi’s *favorite* brand for skins is ploom — she has worn the maia face pretty exclusively since she snagged a few of helyanwe vindaloo‘s skins. this particular skin is a different face, lea this time, but it looks just as pretty on vivi as her usual, and the discount.. i’m fairly certain vivi squealed when i told her about it. ;p

her top here, by baiastice, is out for a hefty discount @ the dressing room blue.. along with a whole slew of awesome goodies from some amazing brands, as usual. both of the dressing room events are fantastic ways to discover new-to-you brands (for instance, neither vivi nor i owned any baiastice mesh clothing before this… but after seeing this top? and its adorable star pattern? makes me want to rectify my lack of this brand in my inventory!) as well as grab some items from brands you know for much less than expected. this top in particular was a nice find.. the color, cut && *price* make it perfect to lounge around in while the summer heat creeps up!

05.21.2012

the ruffly yellow shorts i’m wearing here, by g field are a *donation* item out @ culture shock. g field can really do no wrong in my eyes when it comes to shoes and clothing (but especially shoes!!) so grabbing these was a no-brainer.. especially since the cost to purchase goes right to the charity culture shock is raising funds for. these shorts are cute, flirty && packed with details all over.. the bright yellow color (which i am *loving* lately) was just a bonus.

and the last sales event i wanted to touch on was this month’s round of collabor88. there’s no shortage of goodies at collabor88, some of which i’ve already blogged, but the cloudy-sky necklace i’m wearing here from league (those clouds.. they move!) && the white shrug i’ve got on by kyoot both were things i *had* to have. i always look forward to when a new collection @ collabor88 goes up and this round was particularly wonderful.. i don’t think there was anything i *didn’t* like.

shopping on a budget can be a bit of a pain, but there’s definitely no reason not to hit up all the various sales && events out there to feed your shoppin’ need. and you never know, you could discover a new favorite designer… which is always exciting.. at least to me. /shopping junkie

these balloon poses, for instance, are from glitterati… and oh my god, i about died over these! how cute are they!? the balloon prop is color change and every single pose is just adorableness. what is *not* to love about flying around with a brightly colored balloon in your hand?

the tee, bracelets, mesh shorts, tank top && necklace i’m wearing above are also all stumblebum items.. from rezipsa loc, handverk, e! && dark mouse. the palette this round worked *so* nicely together — every single color reminds me of summery, fruity drinks or icy cold popsicles and, of course, i am such a sucker for that specific shade of bright pink.

colors like this just scream happiness.. it is hard to *not* smile when you surround yourself with such bright, vibrant hues. and balloons, too.. it is definitely hard not to smile when toting around a balloon on your finger. weeeee!
