beach bodies

after seeing the pretty crossing currents sim on strawberry singh‘s post, photobombed, i knew i had to take pictures there eventually.

so when bff vivi && i decided we needed to prance around in swimsuits for a few bloggity pics, i knew exactly where to take her!

except, she and i didn’t get photobombed… i kept an eye out for that bird berry mentioned… but i didn’t see it *anywhere*. nothing out of the ordinary popped up in the background of my photos..

so strange, right? where *did* that bird go?

no matter!

spring means getting beach body ready, right? and vivienne && i thought we’d get a li’l practice in, before swimsuit season *officially* gets here. there are some bathing suits out there on the grid already, which ended up being most helpful while we were putting together our summery looks~

05.07.2012

mine, for instance, is from stellar — which just released a whole new collection of bathing suits that are more on the *modest* side. i can appreciate that, considering that the vast majority of swimwear out there right now leaves very little to the imagination, and these new tankinis are so cute! plus, just because i’m a li’l more covered up, doesn’t mean i can’t be sexy.. just look at that peek of booty on those shorts! ;D

vivi went with a more traditional bikini, that she picked up from a new-to-us store called the bishes inc. these ‘kinis came in a ton of color choices && are nicely made.. she and i both really liked the ties at the hips. simple, cute and inexpensive too… which is always nice, ’cause a girl could go broke buyin’ swimwear, for reals~

i’m still not sure where that bird got to, though. perhaps he didn’t like us as much as he liked berry? i’m not sure! but i was expecting to be photobombed by him && ended up not seeing him at all… very peculiar, indeed.

sooooooooooooo~

it’s been a couple days, huh? my bad! the bff && i have been sucked in to minecraft as of late.. we’ve been playing it pretty much in every available free second we’ve both had in the last few days. killin’ creepers, tamin’ ocelots, buildin’ epic home bases… y’know. all that good minecraft-y stuffs!

but i took a break from my blocky minecraftian self, just for ya’ll~ ;p i didn’t want to get even more behind on bloggity stuffs, because lemme tell ya.. there’s always lots to blog, so if i don’t keep up with it? i get behind *so* fast && end up with a back log of things i wanna show off. and that’s never fun!

so, enough about minecraft && on with the look!

03.07.2012

lots of skin! \o/

this look is an combination of a whole bunch’a goodies… some older, some newer. it’s fun to go through my inventory (what i have left of it, bahah) && pick out bits and pieces i’ve not worn in a while… and then try to work them into a more recent look. so along with the new mesh gos boots, the new ripped up stockings and cybernetic ink from onyx wear && the new super short skirt from red mint.. i also have on some older gloves from plastik, a gun from breach that’s so fun to wear (and i do wear it often, but just as an accessory! ;)), && a skin from curio that i’ve loved hardcore since i picked it up last summer.

03.07.2012

top that off with a recent release from truth that’s so big and so windblown, some of my favorite horns from rue && my absolute favorite for piercings with hod.. and i’m pretty proud with how this look turned out!

but i’ve got some wheat waiting to harvest, some ore to mine, and some pigs to saddle.. so i’m off for a li’l more minecraft adventuring. don’t mind me if my posts are a bit slow for a while, but i’ll split my time between sl and minecraft as best i can. which is *such* hard work, mmmhmmm~

brunette

i’m…. i’m brunette?! O:

03.02.2012

why yes, yes i am~

it’s the only color i’ve really *not* rocked in world much. i’ve been blonde (hah, understatement! i am almost always blonde), a red-head, gone dark to black and navy, worn bright colors like bubblegum pink and lavender and minty teal… but brown? there’s not been much brunette vixxie other than in a few shots for showing off skins… and i kinda like the brown, not gonna lie! :X

and mentioning skin posts.. i went brunette for my post for today because of the skin i’m wearing. i used to not let brow-color deter me from wearing my favorite blonde shades of hair, but the longer i’m in sl.. the more my tastes change. now if a skin doesn’t have light brows on it, i usually don’t buy it because i just *can’t* wear it with my preferred shade of light blonde. light brows are still definitely harder to find than dark, though some of my favorite brands always seem to include them (and that is why they are faves!), but sometimes.. i make exceptions.

this skin i’m wearing here, which is out for stumblebum @ aura is gooooooorgeous. this skin line has been all over the feeds since release && i can now totally see why. bff vivi has been wearing this skin, briar, around in world for a li’l bit && i think it looks stunning on her (totally! see here if you don’t believe me ;p).. so i was excited to try it for myself. and obvs, i liked it enough to go brunette *just* so i could wear it~ plus the three makeups out for stumble are bright and pretty and come with a ton of tattoo-layer lipsticks for mixin’ && matchin’. love!!

03.02.2012

and yeah, there’s a new round of stumblebum out! like i said, the skin i’m wearing is out at aura.. but i’m also wearing several other stumble goodies~

the tee i’ve got on (sparkle pony omfg) is part of the set from kyoot, the beautiful eyes are from insufferable dastard (i love love lovelovelove these! the colors are just so pretty!), the ribbon && pearl necklace is from miao, the *adorable* cafe-esque table and chair are from mud honey && all of the standing poses in the pictures are above are part of the items out at frooti.

i also gotta give credit to gogo for showing off some home decor items.. the two posters on the wall behind me matched my color scheme perfectly && i never would’ve grabbed ’em had it not been for her blog. so cute!! and totally inexpensive, too~

sooooo, brunette huh? not too bad! it’s nice for a change.. and the best part? the mesh hair i’m wearing here from magika comes in such a *generous* color-pack that i didn’t even have to pick between buying blonde or brown.. i get both! makes switching colors when i feel the *whim* for it so much easier. \o/
