springtime pastels

to me, you just cannot have spring without a li’l bit of pretty pastel. it’s probably the fact that easter is spring, and easter usually means soft pink and baby blue and peach (and cadbury creme eggs!), but i always associate the beginning of spring with lighter colors.


apparently, so does bff vivi!

we decided to girly it up today with colors befitting of this time of year… in some light green, lavender && lemon chiffon yellow~

as often as i wear bold, bright hues.. and as often as i wear all black, i can’t deny how lovely the lighter side of the spectrum can be… and how positively *feminine* you can feel while wearing them. there’s something undeniably… *ladylike* about wearing something that’s softer in color && it’s a nice change of pace for me. i don’t do the whole… ruffly fabrics && dainty colors thing a lot, in my first life or in my second life, so it was good to know i could.. if i wanted to. ;p


while vivienne’s look all centers around the colors found in her *gorgeous* knee-high boots (from g field, at fashion for life).. mine was painstakingly (hah!) put together with pieces i picked up at collabor88. not only do i love the super steep discount found at collabor88, but the fact that usually there is a universal color palette used throughout all the items offered there. it makes picking up something from one designer.. then another… and another… to make a cohesive outfit so, so easy.

the top i’m wearing is from ufo, while the skirt is just one of many color choices set out by the sea hole. i like the contrast of the rougher fabric (adorned with girly li’l flowers!) of the skirt when paired with the delicate texturing on the top.. and how easily the shades work together, especially when accessorized with the necklace i picked up from collabor88 by yummy.

vivi’s look is just as pretty, if not moreso, with that stunning shade of pastel yellow. the jacket, from ricielli is a different sort of feminine — a polished, tailored sort — and it matches the floral folded-over top on her boots *perfectly*. her look also dresses up a simple, plain (and free!) tank top && her favorite pair jeans rather nicely.

so! girly-girl looks for today! it may not be my everyday, but there definitely is a softer side to vixxie. ;D i enjoy challenging myself to create looks that are outside my own personal realm of normal && it’s nice when it actually *works*. i can totally pull off a ~lady~ just as well as the next girl, riiiiiiiiight? …. right?!

in the desert

..you can’t remember your name, ’cause there ain’t no one for to give you no pain. laa la lalalala lalaalaa laaaa laaa~

this song is *really* before my time, but i still love it. and my look for today, paired with the in-world location i found to snap my bloggy pics, made me immediately think of it. so *old school* jam with me! \m/


…not that my look has much to do with being in a desert, but.. y’know. ;P at least my location does!

i broke out a couple older items i found in my inventory purge about a month ago. it’s a never-ending cycle, trying to keep my inventory sorted.. with how much of a *shopaholic* i am, it can very very easily get out of hand. i mean, i was all pumped && excited about getting my inventory number way down, and during the process of boxing/deleting.. i went and fatpack’d a new skin. *facepalm* but! i’m proud to say i’ve kept my number.. manageable.. since then. and i’ve been more determined than ever to get some use out of the older items i decided were worth keeping!

the boots i’m wearing, as well as the vest, are things i’ve had in my inventory for quite a while now. the boots are an older group gift from coco (they are still available too, for freeeee!) && the vest is from niniko.. and both of which i decided to keep because i like them so much. i mean, i bought this vest when you could only wear one of each clothing layers at a time… so having a fully sculpted vest, without any sort of jacket/shirt glitch layer, was a really nice find. i could wear it even if my undershirt, shirt && jacket layers were already taken! still, the textures && the prim work on this vest, even after all this time, make it a nice addition to my sl-closet… and i still love the way it fits!


so with the older, i’m wearing some newer stuffs, too! the top i’m wearing here, which is actually a *super* sexy cut-out dress, is new from nestle my bosom. the skirt is mesh && is part of a *15L* hunt going on right now @ ricielli. both the chest tattoo, and the ink on my arms, are also newer releases from vestigium — which is quickly becoming my go-to place for black tattoo sleeves.

i know sometimes we bloggers get.. caught up in all the new releases out there. or at least, i know i certainly do! there’s always so much new && so much awesome on the grid at any given time that you can kiiiiinda forget what you already own. but i think it’s good sometimes to break out the things you still like, that aren’t exactly fresh off the shelves && work it nicely in with things that came out more recently. breathe new life and versatility into the things you already own! \o/

what makes you happy?


pink hair makes me happy. whale-shaped gloves *definitely* make me happy. mesh eyelashes… make me so happy i could squeal. birthdays make me happy……

oh, and speaking of birthdays 😉 (you like that awesome segue!? bahahah~).. my rl birthday is *tomorrow*, the 23rd! \o/ and i am so, so excited to celebrate.

sometimes, you just need a good excuse to be goofy and let off some steam. to be unabashedly happy && smile until your cheeks hurt. to laugh, to be loud, to have a fantastic time. and with the help of bff vivi and a few of my other rl friends (what? they exist!! ;P), i plan to do just that!


it seemed only fitting to pose for a few bloggity pics being just as happy, silly && smiley in my sl as i am in my rl. birthdays often make you feel *old*, and sad subsequently, but i am just as excited for mine now as i was when i was a little kid. and it’s simply because i’ll be celebrating with my amazing friends, some good food, and a drink (or twelve).

and there’s cake… cake is *always* a good excuse to be happy!

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~~ ❤❤❤

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~

ah, sales… how i love thee..

click to see it larger @ flickr!

lots of the items i’m wearing today were discounted heavily either through an event or through a sale && it’s a beautiful thing!

the latest store that i’ve heard of to be having a *huge* sale is ricielli — all the clothing, shoes, && accessories are all marked down to just 50L. there’s lots of high-fashiony goodness there at a nice, steep discount && i went the other night (with bff vivi!) and snagged several things for super cheap.. including the top, necklace and belt i’m wearing here in this look. i also grabbed a couple jackets, some jeans, a handbag, and a dress… because… well. why the hell not? x3

click to see it larger @ flickr!

the jeans i’m wearing here, in all their bright red glory, are from willow out @ collabor88.. so you know these were discounted too, down to *88L*. since it’s the end of the month (and! trivia for you! today is justin timberlake‘s birthday! xD just in case you wanted to know~ *fangirl scream*), that means the collection will be rollin’ over in about a week or so.. and i made one last pass through to grab a few last minute things from the offerings in this round. i love the color on these pants, it’s a pinkish red and so vibrant that it made for a nice *pop* of color in the sea of black && gray jeans in my inventory.

and even better discounts? the skully scarf i’m wearing was *freeeeeee* from emery (it’s on a board in the middle of all the new releases and is part of a holiday gift of freebies && cheapies, so i dunno how much longer it’ll be there!) && the black fingerless gloves were a dollarbie from hermony.

sale prices make me go all squealy — if there’s a sale somewhere on the grid, you *know* i’ll be all over it. all of the clothing i’m wearing, and a good portion of the extras i’ve got on too, were snagged for a lovely discount. and making an entire look work, down to even matching accessories, with just sale goodies is a glorious thing!

sound of winter

it’s all in your face
i see you break
it’s like the sound of winter
the bleeding love, the silent escape
you’ve got to hang on to yourself

i am so fucking obsessed with this song lately. i mean, gavin rossdale is *delicious* (srsly i’d lick this man up and down, goodness) && i just… love.. this song. it’s pretty much been on repeat for me all day and i’m looooovin’ it~ haha. so jam with me, kay!

but now onto the actual point of my post… a lotd!


with the turning of 2012, i’ve made myself a couple sl-resolutions that i’m hoping i can actually keep up with. one.. is to get my inventory in better order. i’ve got it all organized in folders && subfolders && subfolders of subfolders, but. there’s a lot of old things shoved away in there that i just don’t wear anymore. i don’t have issues with my inventory loading *knocks on wood* or items disappearing.. or with taking snapshots yet due to the number of items i’m hoarding, but i definitely need to do some boxing and deleting. it’s tough, though! i’ve gotten rid of a good 5-6k today alone && it’s takin’ some serious willpower to figure out what i want to keep and what i know i won’t wear anymore.

the other resolution i’ve made.. is to actually wear the things i keep. i always forget what i have and/or it’s pushed to the bottom of my inventory when i come across new releases that i must have. and even if it’s a li’l older, there are some things in my inventory that i bought and wore once (or, even worse, bought and *never* even wore!) that def need some loving. case in point.. this pigtail hair i’ve got on today from lelutka. it came out for hair fair over the summer and i blogged it once && haven’t worn it since. and it’s a *shame* ’cause this hair is soooo cute. i rediscovered it today while organizing and i can’t believe i let this cute ‘do sit in my inventory untouched for so long.

bad, bad vixxie.


but that doesn’t mean *all* imma blog is older stuff i’ve found in the dredges of my inventory, lolol~ in fact, i’ve got two *new* things on today just to make up for it. ;p the plaid shirt i’m wearing is a new(-ish?) release from ronsem that i saw on the feeds && immediately went to snag for myself. aaaaand the mini skirt i’m wearing is out @ the dressing room by ricielli (and is all of *70L*). it’s mesh and studded and ripped and wonderful. it’s nice && short without being too short.. and the price coupled with the fact that it’s mesh.. there’s really no way i could resist it.

there are lots of discounted goodies, as always, at the dressing rooms.. but this round seemed to be particularly sweet. which was bad for my new years resolutions, but awesome for my need to have all the things. it’s a catch-22~

midnight sled ride

you ever have so much candy that you almost go out of your mind? you’ve got more sugar pumping through your veins than you have blood && you’re ridin’ a sugar rush so potent, it feels like if you were any more hyper.. you’d be a hummingbird?

no? just me && bff vivi then?


a li’l christmas candy never hurt anybody, but maaaaaybe when your candy canes are as.. *large*.. as the ones vivi && i had.. well. perhaps a bit of moderation would have gone pretty far. but we both love peppermint and even though we already had sweets *before* we even dug into the candy canes, they were just far too tasty for their own good.

so after we polished off our peppermint… we got some ideas. some crazy, sugar-rush-induced ideas.


..like, wouldn’t it be fun to take a ride on our sled in the middle of the night? off of the biggest, bumpiest, most tree-covered hill we could possibly find? hells yeah!!

our eyes were filled with determination as we stared down that hill. i was to give vivienne a running start to help the sled pick up momentum more quickly, then hop on the back just as the sled started down that hill..


and we were off!!

it felt like we were going about a million miles per hour down that hill. trees, rocks, snow-covered ground.. all of it went past my eyes in a blur. it was absolutely thrilling && in the process, after going over a few rather large bumps, vivi and i both lost the last bits of candy we were snackin’ on. but it didn’t even matter! the ride started off fast and exciting, we were practically flying down the hill on our sled! she && i were screaming and laughing and decided to treat it like a roller coaster ride — hands up and everything!

but as our small wooden sled rounded a corner..


…we realized why there weren’t more people taking advantage of our sweet sledding hill.

as soon as the tip of our sled tipped over the edge of that drop, vivi && i knew what was coming. the hill, as it turned out, took a rather sharp dive straight down… and it was far enough down the hill that we couldn’t see the drop off from the top through the trees. we were going far too fast to stop the sled, the only thing we could do was scream (or in my case, try not to cry!) && ride it out and hope for the best.

we finally landed in a snow drift towards the bottom of the hill, it was the only thing that could stop our sled. vivi went flying face-first into the snow, but i tried to dive off to the side… and ended up rolling the rest of the way down the hill. we didn’t get hurt too badly (vivi had a nose full of snow, while i just ended up with twigs and li’l pebbles stuck in my hair), but we were scared shitless.

let our adventure be a lesson to you! no matter how super awesome && amazing an idea sounds to you when your mind is clouded with obscene amounts of sugar… don’t do it!! you’ll end up having your slife flash before your eyes, develop an irrational fear of sleds && probably pee your pants in fear in the process. ….. *ahem*

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?

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!

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….

..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..
