back to a more normal look for now, because you can’t spend all of october in costume…

…well, i guess you could, and i’d certainly try, but y’know. just go with it.


vip group members for oOo studio were treated to this grungy loft posebox the other day && it inspired the entire look you see here. pose props, for me, are usually hit or miss — i tend to like them, but only if they’re unique enough to really stand out from finding a nice in-world backdrop. and this one, with the included poses and all those dynamic shadows cast through the windows and doors, was definitely a hit with me.


also released the other day are these pierced && gauged ears, from mandala. it was instant love for me, i *had* to have them, and they are worth every linden imho. the options alone for wearing these make them fantastic — there’s tons of textures and colors to choose from for every single part of these ears (including the *adorable* kitty faces i chose here for the plugs) as well as several sizes of gauges in either plugs or tunnels. they look amazing on and are packed full of bits ‘n’ bobs, as if i’d expect any less from goodies from mandala~

plus, new *gorgeous* skin from glam affair, some mesh skinny jeans from sakide, a new gorgeous updo from truth… and… i guess i couldn’t resist adding in a li’l extra halloween with these alien eyes from insufferable dastard that are out @ the cinema event. perhaps this could count as a halloween costume for an alien, y’know.. trying to blend in? kind of a stretch but i’m trying, okay!? i can’t help it that i’m *super* excited for the 31st.. ~_~

want some fries with that shake?

onyx wear released an entire metric ton of new mesh goodies… including a super cute tube top that comes in a rather large handful of designs && colors. but among all the choices, there was one in particular that i wanted to show off in a lotd…


…that features *french fries* and red ‘n’ white stripes. and i am lovin’ it (bada bah bah bahhh… see what i did there?!?!).

all cheesy puns aside ;p these new tops are made of awesome… i have been living in this one for at least the last 48 hours. it may be a testament to the fact that i’d totes eat at least ten pounds of french fries in a single sitting if i had them available, but this design was by far my favorite out of the bunch. so cute!


instead of goin’ with a pair of short shorts, i grabbed for a pair of longer cuffed shorts i grabbed at sn@tch… which is having a sale all weekend long (that ends on the 30th!).

i absolutely *love* sn@tch (ahaha), because for me.. it’s a one-stop shopping sorta store. i love that ivey deschanel embraces so many different styles of clothing — from goth to girly to cyberpunk && back again — all of which i enjoy depending on my mood. if i want a latex bodysuit, sn@tch has it. a frilly skirt, sn@tch has it. cute tank tops, jeans, flowy dresses… pretty much anything under the sun. like it’s catered to me personally, someone whose personal sense of style seems to change with the time of day.

so when bff vivi && i heard about this sale, she and i pretty much made a beeline for it. these shorts i’m wearing here, which has color-change cuffs && comes in black denim and the blue i’m wearing here, were just one of many.. many… manymany things i scooped up. i am drowning in sn@tch (lolol, insert 14-year-old sense of humor here), but i could honestly *not* be happier about my haul.

new onyx wear mesh, sn@tch sale goodies, and oh! the super cute ponytail hairstyle i’m wearing is *new* from lamb — one of four released the other day. i am really enjoying lamb’s latest mesh releases && these ponytail styles are no exception. this style is *perfectly* messy and sits just right on the shoulder.. wonderful for the upcoming warmer weather. and these dip-dyed, multicolored shades are just gorgeous… nothing begs for an over-the-shoulder ponytail quite like bare shoulders, but i am honestly *stuck* on thinking about french fries rather than anything else.

so i’m positively sure that it’s already made its way around the feeds, but. in case you’ve *not* heard, there is a *50%* off sale going on right now @ truth district. lots of the stores on the sim are participating, including truth’s own satellite store, and i braved the lag && large crowd to snag some amaaaaaazing deals!

click to see it larger @ flickr!

that i noticed.. earthstones, truth, nardcotix, gos, curio, je suis && aura are participating.. but i honestly didn’t check every single store. there could be more i missed out on, so it’s definitely worth checkin’ out yourself!

i took the sale opportunity to pick up some things i’ve been eyeballin’ but never got around to actually picking up. a few of truth‘s recent releases (and his *latest* releases are included in the sale too, one of which is the high ponytail style i’m wearing here!), a couple pairs of boots ‘n’ heels from gos, and a skin i’ve probably demo’d 947832734 times exactly from curio that the 50% off fatpack price tag finally convinced me to just give in and grab.

the jeans i’m wearing here are from the sale goodies at aura and i even picked up some new nails from je suis… all in all, i’d say it was a pretty awesome haul. i can never resist a good sale, and this one is no exception. i mean, it’s a sale at some of my *absolute* favorite stores… i gleefully said goodbye to the rest of my linden balance and filled my inventory with so much lovely new stuffs. ’tis a win, imho~

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! *-*


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!


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.


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.

my li’l narwhal

sales, narwhals && cuteness galore… are you ready for it? x3


there are some times when i just feel like humoring my inner child. after all, the time right around christmas is good for helping you feel like a li’l kid again — santa, the thought of presents, all the nostalgic movies on tv, how exciting the first snowfall of the year is even after you’re “all grown up”. so i decided i’d indulge my ~*~kawaii~*~ side today && dress less adult.. and more cute.

blah is a good start for when i am in need of something ridiculously adorable, the range of designed tees there are just so cute. bubblegum && cotton candy colors, mixed with sweet little animals.. on a cropped tee.. there’s not much cuter than that. and the one i’m wearing, featuring arguably the cutest narwhal in existence, was hard to resist. i love the powder blue color && the whale’s blushing cheeks pretty much did me in.


and i mentioned sales too, huh? i’ve got *two* to talk about~ the first, from paper doll. several pieces from the summer collection @ paper doll are insanely cheap right now. some things are 50L, which will be available after the sale on the marketplace, and some items are *25L*… and these will be gone for good once the sale is over. the feather earrings i’m wearing, something i’ve eyeballed every single time i’ve been in paper doll, are part of the 25L selection && found their way into my inventory faster than i could even blink. and the high-waist, flared jeans i’m wearing were only 50L.. insane bargain on some very nicely made jeans. and that is something i can *never* have too much of.

the second sale.. is the fashion garret, where my sneakers && belt are from. now, the shoes.. i’m wearing in white && blue, but they are actually completely and totally customizable. they’re menu-driven and each part (we’re talkin’ each stripe, the tongue, the heel, the laces, all the extra details too!) is color-change with blue, green, red, cream && plaid choices. and the best part of it all, they’re only *69L*~

and the belt.. from pepper.. is so packed with detail. i’ve got candy canes, a christmas-y gnome, some tissues (y’know, for all those winter time colds that seem so prevalent!), && even some cookies… yes, *cookies*.. hangin’ from my belt at all times. the bag is in a pretty shade of teal, decorated with snowflakes, and is adorableness all around. my only gripe is that it’s no-mod with a resize script, but i was surprised how well it fit without being able to tweak as i liked. and only for 70L, it was a worth-it risk to me… especially for how cute it is.

i completed the look with some extra bits of cute — a keychain nom && hair bow (that i resized *much* smaller from it’s original state!) from love soul, a set of “toy” nails && rings from candy nail, and a locket necklace from addiction that holds a picture of someone very close to my heart inside of it. ❤ it’s a li’l bit child-like, but i’m a-okay with that. i’ll just be over here, bein’ a kid, eatin’ my chocolate chip cookies.. and no, you can not have one! ;p

it’s a wonderful feeling..

…feel the love in the room, from the floor to the ceiling! it’s that time of year, christmas time is here~


so, y’know, it’s been a while. i’ve been a terrible blogger && actually not *blogged* at all in the last.. oh… month or so. and i could totally make some excuse for myself to explain, but the fact is i’ve just been busy as all hell and haven’t had the time. but! i managed to set some time aside, and i also managed to persuade bff vivi to set some time aside as well, to blog just a li’l bit before the holidays. ’cause i’ve been listening to a certain song on repeat today that may or may not make my inner 14 year old squeal && i’ve gotten in the “holiday spirit”.. and stuff. so i felt like blogging some of the awesome holiday goodies floatin’ around on the grid.

yay! :3


wintery fauns!

while my look is all about the red && green.. vivienne on the other hand just looks *cute*. cute and mint green and snuggly warm in her over-sized hat. i took the whole christmas faun thing && just sorta ran with it, while she took a more.. subtle approach. x3


her adorable elephant hat && matching faun boots are by epic, which is the go-to place for both of us for all things fantasy. we both own a surprising amount of faun bits, but our favorites and the ones we both wear most often are from epic. the textures are nicely made, the pieces are always impeccably detailed, and even with new releases that are all *must haves*, it never breaks the bank to go on a shopping binge @ epic. and really, how can you even begin to say no to that adorable li’l elephant face? his big, poofy eyes stare into your soul…

her jeans && silken jacket are both from collabor88, which i’m sure have been all over the feeds already. and with good reason! the jacket, by tres blah, and the jeans by (which actually were part of an outfit that included a super cute top!) are ridiculously awesome deals. steep discounts on items from well-known designers are always welcome additions to my inventory && the fact that they looked nice together… it was just an added bonus~


several pieces from my outfit are from collabor88 as well. the mesh scarf, by surf couture, my nails and ring and bangles from the seal hole && my jeans from tres blah were all just *88L* each and pretty much.. were insta-buys for me && for vivi. if i’m right, the new collection should be going up soon (it changes on the 8th of the month, methinks) so if you’ve not gone && taken advantage of the awesome deals there already.. you really, really should. the price alone makes it *so* worth it!

my faun feets are from epic, just like vivi’s are, only mine… were free for group members. as i said, epic is amazing for feeding my need to have absolutely everything in the store, but jade winthorpe is also incredibly generous when it comes to gifts. joining the epic vip group is definitely worth the price to do so, if for no other reason than right now there are a ton of gifts under the tree for you to snag (and group-only lucky boards, too!). the faun boots i’m wearing are just one of several presents that include dresses, santa hats, li’l xmas-themed noms… if you’re needing some holiday spirit of your own, the group gifts from epic are seriously worth checkin’ out.

i may be a little behind in blogging… …aha.. or more like a *lot* behind, but posing with vivi && taking advantage of some awesome deals made it worthwhile to set some time aside and blog. i miss it, after all. ;.; and who knows, it may not be the only wintery post i make before getting swamped again with real life. … ;D

i rarely, if ever, wear handbags in world. i rarely wear them in looks i blog. and it’s not because i don’t particularly like them (i mean, seriously, i have a purse addiction irl — i own so many dooney bags alone to have an entire wardrobe of them), but i can never really find any that work quite right. but this purse @ collabor88 from the sea hole has a built in animation to keep your arm straight. which makes it *awesome* to actually wear with your AO running! it also comes in a ton of equally vibrant, beautiful colors (including hot pink!), but i was drawn to this purple. it’s a gorgeous shade, and the details are suberb. looooveee eeeettt.

this jumper is out @ collabor88 from boom && is a nice mixture of cute and sexy. the shorts are super short, but they look *adorable* with the long-sleeved, baseball tee top. and just like the purse (and the sweatshirt && eye makeup too!) in the first picture, this set comes in a ton of bright colors. who says you already have to start wearing drab, dull && boring colors just because fall is in there air? 😉 thankfully in second life you don’t have to worry about freezing your ass off if you decide to wear some teeny shorts, no matter how chilly it is outside!

absolutely everything in the pics below that’s from plastik were *free*. 8D wonderfully free. if you haven’t slapped the subscribomatic or joined the group, what on earth are you waiting for?! i’ve no clue how long either gift will be available, so go. go right now. gogogogoogogogogo! >;O

sometimes, it’s not about all the pieces to an outfit.. but, rather, the look as a whole. and now that my compy can handle shadows and shaders and lighting, the look as a whole also includes scenery and backgrounds.

for a blog that’s supposed to show off cool things i find && love, i apologize in advance for the fact that some of the photographs are just too damn dark to see everything properly. but! call it.. artistic expression? maybe? teehee~

atmosphere plays a big role in how i photograph now. i kinda.. take a step back, look at what i’m wearing, and decide what an appropriate backdrop would be. if i’m prancing around all cute && kawaii, being on a rusty steampunk sim just wouldn’t fit (no matter how much i like to mix contrasts!). and if i’m dark and *evil*, taking pictures by a pretty park fountain wouldn’t be right, either. finding the right *ambiance* can make a look really stand out, i think, but it’s actually finding it that’s the tough part.

i cannot tell you how many sims i bounced from while trying to take these pics — all while crashing roughly ten thousand times. but the result, in the end, is what matters. and it came out pretty perfect imho! \o/

see, it takes more work now than just puttin’ on a cute outfit and calling it a day. ;p

dark && discolored though it may be, you can kiiiiiinda see my outfit.. right? xD

the pants i’m wearing are a *freebie* from whippet & buck for the opening of the truth district. the gift actually comes with two tops i’m not showing && is most def worth snagging. and, luckily for us, all the group gifts will be out an extra three days — until july 8th — so there’s still plenty of time to de-prim and de-script and battle the lag monster for some fantastic goodies~

the tank top i’m wearing is from hucci && i’ll be honest, i hadn’t even planned on popping in to hucci today. but eboni khan is always so generous to her subscribo members ❤ that she dropped a 100L gift card on us today. 8D with the discount, this tank was only *25L* && it’s super cute. i love the flowy look the hem has and the fact that it gives just a li’l peek of the tummy without being completely bare it all. the price i paid only makes it that much better!

and this hair… from magika at the hair fair.. i mean, i bought a shit ton of hair already && plan to go back tomorrow (shopping trip! \o/ woo!), but this one i think is *by far* my favorite. i’ve said it in the past, but no one does long && whispy like sabina gully does and this hair is just… wonderful. i love the added braided piece and it reminds me a lot of the ren style i already love so much. this one is just a bit wavier && extra *sexy*.
