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*!

i am in *love* with the newest round of collabor88 goodies…

11.09.2012

…not only is the color palette gorgeous (shades of deep orange, golden yellow && cool teal-blue), but just about everything i spied there was callin’ my name~

collabor88 is one of those events that i look most forward to every single month. the mixture of home furnishings (which *really* helps, considering i’ve a brand new home to finish decorating!), fabulous fashion, accessories and even poses is all kinds of awesome. but this round, i found *so* many things i honestly flipped out for that i couldn’t even fit everything into one look. the collections just keep getting better && better and this round was definitely no exception.

the dress i’m wearing here is *so* sexy. it’s from hucci and i absolutely love it. the turtleneck collar, the length of the skirt, the lovely suede texturing…. and the way it moves… it is just flaw free. the fit on this dress is fantastic and i adore this blue-gray color, but i also snagged it in black because it was just too *good* to pass up.

11.09.2012

glam affair also has a few new things at collabor88 this round, including both the boots(!) && the skin i’m wearing today. the seul ankle boots come in a range of really pretty jewel tone colors that almost look metallic, but my favorite was this pretty golden bronze color. it’s neutral enough to work with just about anything i could possibly want to wear ’em with, but still *unique* enough to really add a pop of color into an outfit. they are shiny and high-heeled and impeccably textured. love~

and the skin…. well, it *is* that time of year after all. being a little under the weather is not uncommon in the colder months of fall && winter, but at least you can still look adorable with your snuffly nose. this set of skins, in glam affair’s roza and ginny faces, can either look like you’ve got a bit of a cold…. or like your face is flushed from being out in some chilly wind. such a cute idea that translates really, really well if you take lots of pictures in-world like i do. having that extra flush on the cheeks and nose, when combined with a “cooler” windlight setting && maybe a scarf (like the one i’m wearing here, which is a *freebie* from mr. poet!) totally adds another level of realism to your snapshots!

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~

playboy

halloween is the one night a year when girls can dress like a total slut and no other girls can say anything about it.

so, apparently i like quoting mean girls… but! i figured it was a fitting quote, considering the costumes bff vivi && i are wearing in my post for today..

10.25.2012

i’ve done creepy, i’ve done cute, i’ve done character cosplay…. time for somethin’ simply sexy for halloween! and there is little that’s sexier than two playboy bunnies.

all we need is a nice tray of martinis to serve..

aaaaanyway! the key to these looks are these mesh bodysuits from hucci. we both picked these up @ collabor88 several rounds ago, but thankfully these sets are still available at the hucci mainstore. vivienne is wearing the entire set here — including the cuffs, collar, ears && tail — and these are *perfect* for a halloween costume all in one.

10.25.2012

i accessorized my look with an rabbit ear ‘n’ tail set i picked up from o.m.e.n. (because i was trying to better match my ears/tail to my hair color.. is that weird?), which includes several sets of these *adorable* bunny ears and tails in a bunch of color choices. these sets are so cute, as is the kitsune set i wore here, and i love that the ears come in straight-up versions as well as the one-ear-bent variation i’m wearing here~

add in some super high heels from n-core, bright red lipstick (mine from pink fuel, vivi’s from glam affair) && a cute stage set that i picked up by focus poses… and you’ve got two very sexy (just in my humble opinion ;P) playboy bunnies. now who wants a cocktail?

out for a stroll

10.22.2012

i really love how the entire grid seems to change with rl seasons… i’m seeing less && less bright green grass and more gorgeous fall foliage. and while i was on the warrumbungles sim (shopping, of course x3), i realized just how pretty the scenery was outside the store i was in. so naturally, i couldn’t resist taking a stroll down the cobblestone street and snapping my blog pics for today there.

and this windlight setting i used made the pretty trees behind me seem to glow, which was a wonderful effect. i rarely post process my blog pics here, the only thing i tend to do is mess a bit with brighness/contrast and sometimes smooth out jaggies on the avatar mesh, so the backdrop you see here is all in-viewer goodness. i used a windlight by elysium eilde (with a few tweaks for more cloud coverage in the sky) and it was absolutely perfect for painting a pretty autumn picture.

now onto my look…

10.22.2012

the skin i’m wearing today is from leafy.. and i’m honestly not sure why i’ve not given this brand a chance before. i *love* this face. these lips are perfection in shape and color && this skin tone i’m wearing here (called lumiel) worked so well with the freckle tattoos i wear all the time. it came with a pure, make-up free face which is ideal for layering your own favorite makeup tattoos on top, and a face with a simple black cat eye that i’m wearing. i honestly could not decide which skin to pick up first — i sat with about a billion demos in my inventory before i finally grabbed one — because there were lovely fantasy-type skins (paler and super dark tones with gorgeous makeups, then “out there” skin tones in shades of purple and green), halloween themed skins, and then more “normal” faces with in a range of everyday makeups. i settled on this sapphire skin for the moment, because i loved the way it looks on my shape, but as i said… no idea why i’ve not hoarded this skin brand before now.

the hair style i’m wearing here is *free* currently, in the exile subscribo, along with two more. i spotted them on kavar cleanslate‘s flickr before i got the notice && immediately went to snag ’em. and as i was unpacking, my jaw dropped. i was honestly expecting just three hair styles — the ones in the flickr pic in those specific hair colors — and was *floored* when i realized the gifts are actually fat packs. such a generous gift and so worth grabbing, especially if you’re like me and you picked up these hairstyles when they were @ tdr blue… but they didn’t come in your preferred hair color then. now, they most certainly do! :3

and lastly, this sweater i’m wearing here is out for a really nice discount @ my attic by dcny. this round of goodies is an awesome one — including *more* hair from exile && a super cute style by ploom, too — but these sweaters immediately caught my eye. for *95L* you get the sweater in your choice of colors and then two matching scarves that i’m not wearing here, one each to match the sweaters color-blocks. and amazing deal for really well-made mesh.. after you smack the exile subscribo, head to my attic for some more awesome bargains!

don’t mind me, i’m just lounging around today..

10.13.2012

suppose i needed to recover from the nekkidness of yesterday. ;P

so i slipped into a comfy (and still pretty!) tank top from red mint && these cozy mesh socks from intrigue co (out @ collabor88) that are totally adorbs and called it a day.

10.13.2012

my hair for today is actually a *freebie*(!!) from magika — two colors of this faint hairstyle, the orange-dipped style i’m wearing here && another tipped in red, are available to subscribo members free for halloween! this straight bang’d style, complete with long curly q strands falling over the shoulders, is one of my favorite releases to date from magika.. so i may have squee’d a li’l when i saw these out for the grabbing.

and because i cannot resist accessorizing even a little bit, i tried on this *new* necklace from amorous and totally fell in love… this orange color is gorgeous, all the metal bits ‘n’ pieces are color change (ranging from dark silver to a deep bronze to a shiny black), and all the details on this piece are just perfection.

i may be recovering from a bout of outfit block, and still not quite fully covered here, but at least i’m not subjecting everyone to my bare boobies again! bwahahah~

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~

shake it

09.13.2012

my very good friend, kystria aura, has been releasing lots’a new tattoos through her store, kys this… and the one i’m showing here is probably one of my favorites thus far. shake it like an etch-a-sketch… don’t mind if i do. ;P

and lucky for me, i had the perfect top to wear *just* to show off the lower-tummy tatt~

sakide has released some basic mesh tanks in a bunch of colors… and i am always looking for tank tops. i firmly believe you can *never* have too many basics, especially when it comes to tanks — they are so easy to wear && mix ‘n’ match with. when i don’t know what to put on? I search for a tank top and these from sakide are super cute!

aaaaand these tops give you options, too. check it out:

09.13.2012

each color has two ways to wear it. the shorter, cropped style that shows off the stomach && a longer, more ruffled style (achieved with a second mesh add-on) as shown in the middle up there for some extra coverage.

i’m only showin’ off three colors here, but there are lots of other colors to pick from. basics *never* go out of style and if you’ve got some funny, quirky, sexy new tummy ink to show off.. these tops work out perfectly~

horned && adorned

shiny, dangly, metallic and embellished…

09.12.2012

…sometimes, i feel like a magpie when it comes to pretty things. i must have them all.

would you believe this entire look came about because i *needed* an excuse to wear these horns? they are from the plastik and are some of the most wonderfully ornate things i’ve seen in a long, long time. the textures are flawless — and my pictures here, sadly, do not even do them enough justice. the pair i snagged, called constellar are dotted all over with an almost glittery, stars-in-outer-space sort of pattern. and when combined with the absolutely *amazing* jeweled adornments, i fell in love. hard.

09.12.2012

this cropped mesh vest from red mint gave me instant elvish-attire sorta vibes the second i tried it on. the clasp at the neck and the dangling jewel fringe seemed appropriate to dress in a very *fantasy* sort of way, though i can totally see this vest working for something more modern day too. perhaps paired with a tank or tee underneath and some roughed up denim?

but i took the fantasy theme && really ran with it — using an opalescent teal glam affair skin that i picked up at one of the dressing room rounds a few months back, adding a pair of claws from ni.ju that i adore, some lovely new bronze bangles from amorous, a couple of facial tattoos from nuuna’s that fit for the look i was going for and an all-over ancient text tattoo from para designs.

true enough, it is not the most practical of fantasy wear but… when is fantasy wear ever really practical, anyway? ;P
