lazy

so! i’ve showed off my new bedroom already && today, i’m posing in part of my living room…

11.12.2012

bff vivi and i have been putting a few last finishing touches on our new home.. y’know, the little details that make things look more “lived in”. and since our living room is so huge (ie, there’s enough room for a full living room set while *still* leaving half the room undecorated), she and i decided to put down a cute dining room set… even though we don’t have a kitchen. ;P only in sl!

and so my look for today is very appropriate for lounging around my house, something comfy but still cute.. while i rez and re-rez candles and books and paintings and picture frames and flower pots.

11.12.2012

this cute cream-colored mesh top i’m wearing is *new* from sakide. there’s lots of new releases at sakide, all of which are awesome separates. ponchos(!), jeans, stockings, boots.. but these v-neck tees were probably my favorites out of the bunch. they are great for layering, which is something i *love* to do in autumn, but still season-appropriate enough on their own to totally work for fall. and i liked this khaki color for how versatile it is to work with!

i know it’s kiiinda hard to see, but check out my necklace! it’s *adorable* && is out @ collabor88 from intrigue co. little potted cactus plants, each dotted with small flowers.. how cute is that!? the set comes with a matching ring (that i *am* wearing here, even if i’m a derp and didn’t photograph it properly :/) and earrings, where each choice has different colored flower accents. so fun && so *cute*, i love accessories like these!

today was kind of a lazy day, i mean.. i didn’t even bother putting on shoes! but i still like this look for how real it is. i wouldn’t be moving furniture around in my rl in a skirt, heels and flowy top.. so i don’t do it in my sl, either~

when i was younger, i was obsessed with batman. legit obsessed. the batman animated series was smack dab in the middle of my childhood — i’d watch it *every. single. day.* after school. and my obsession with batman all started with a little movie called batman returns. i’m really dating myself here, but i remember when that movie came out… and i remember being totally fascinated by it.

as i’ve grown older, i still love me some batman (for evidence, see see right here) and i’ve also come to love all things tim burton… and the two original batman movies *still* rank pretty damn high on my list of favorites. michael keaton will forever be batman to me. but my favorite character, hands down, in all of batman-verse…

10.24.2012

…is catwoman.

michelle pfeiffer’s catwoman was *it* for me. she is catwoman… anne hathaway who? i mean, i know selena kyle was originally a brunette, but to me? she’ll always be a crazy feline-obsessed *blonde* bombshell who looks amazing in skin-tight leather. so of course, she was perfect for me to cosplay! ;D

10.24.2012

my own version of catwoman all started after my trip to the cinema event… where i spied this mask ‘n’ hair combo by mina && immediately snagged it. i saw it, i had to have it, and i was instantly thinking of ways to dress myself up as selena kyle.

so i needed a catsuit. ..obviously. xD and while i own several in varying leather && latex textures, this one from slink was absolutely perfect. while it lacks the homemade stitching that michelle pfeiffer’s costume had in the movie, it more than makes up for it by being *so* fucking sexy. the super low neckline, zipper, and extra shiny latex made it fit what i needed.

but of course… what batman villain is complete without her accessories? i grabbed an outfit from graves (appropriately called the cat) that came with all the necessary bits && bobs — including a mounted whip on the hip, lots of attached pockets, gloves and the li’l kitty collar i’m wearing.

i had to add a teensy bit of *me* back into the costume, so a few piercings from hod (including the feather in my mouth — i thought it was appropriate for a cat, yes?), some claws from candy nail, and a pair of the *hottest* thigh-high boots i’ve seen in a while, by jaimie earst complete the look.

it’s not an exact cosplay, but it’s about as close as i can get! i’m sure no one will complain about my accuracy…

loft

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.

10.16.2012

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.

10.16.2012

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.. ~_~

hat

i have a hat.

10.03.2012

and it is awesome. :3

the newest releases from burley included this amazingly wavy hat-and-hair combo && i immediately fell in slooooooooove. the brushed-over bangs and this hat are just ridiculous amounts of awesome and i pretty much had to have it the moment i saw it.

so i put together an *urban casual* sort of look, befitting of my new hat~

10.03.2012

i’m even wearing *two* freebies with this look — one of which, the glasses, i snagged @ swag fest from epic. i love a good pair of glasses && these oversized frames were not only *1L*, but they’re also infinitely color-change. i liked the way the dark gray checks here matched with my sweater (by erratic, which is out for the new round of fameshed!), but i just as easily could’ve gone with red or yellow or piiink… a fully customizable cheapie like this is awesome!

the necklace i’m wearing is also a freebie — a group gift from the jewellery exchange. i spied this li’l panda around tesh’s neck on the free*style blog && immediately went to snag him. this panda is *adorable* and for a gift is very nicely made. and did i mention the group is free to join, too? and that there’s a few other gifts there for the taking? 😉

and, okay, i know they’re not freebies.. but these spiked boots from slink *need* a mention here. i love them. i want to lick siddean munro for making them. the detail on these is *fantastic* and i adore every last one of those spikes dotting the boot. grabbing these in black was a no-brainer but the other colors are just as hot, too… especially in deep pink. they are wonderful and are so worth demoing, i guarantee you’ll grab a pair too just like i did~

manicure

if you know me, you know i *love* my prim nails. i’m almost never without them… i have this obsession with them. i think they add just a li’l touch of extra realism to my hands (which, let’s be honest, the second life avatar hands leave much to be desired) && i really, really like the way they look on. wearing prim nails has become as much of my outfit routine as wearing piercings, tattoos or blonde hair. i never feel *complete* without a pair on.

09.15.2012

while my own personal taste in nails tends to lean towards super long, sharp and claw-like… more “normal” sets of nails seem to work best for everyday wear. and since a favorite brand of mine for prim nails, virtual insanity, has come out with several new collections of nails.. i thought it fitting to give myself a manicure here and show ’em all off. :3

09.15.2012

the top row shows off three shorter sets of nails… which are perfect when you want a touch of color on your fingertips && glove-layer nails just aren’t cuttin’ it. these are called netty, fishy && tippy — named for their patterns (fishnet/mesh on the first two and plain nails with brightly colored tips on the last). and since each pair is color change, you really can match them to your outfit… or purposely mis-match ’em, like i tend to do.

the second row above shows the new fall collection of nails from v/i. these come in shorter versions like the first row, as well as longer (but not *too* long) sets in both square tips and rounded tips. these sets are color-change as well, in a selection of very autumn-appropriate colors ranging from hot pink to golden yellow to the gorgeous teal you see up there (which is one of my fave colors from the set).

09.15.2012

these sets are called dita and are available @ perfect wardrobe to go along with the burlesque theme of this round. they’re short, can be worn with or *without* the black tips, and have a fishnet-like pattern across them. i like these a lot — for the versatility of wearing them with or without the black tips — and also for the discounted price you can snag ’em for.

if you like wearing prim nails as much as i do, the nails from virtual insanity are really very nice. all are color-change, with lots of choices to pick from, and you cannot beat that for the price!

09.15.2012

also, one last li’l thing! these *mesh* yoga pants i’m wearing from evolve are currently on *sale*. in fact, the entire store is 50% off for a short time! these pants are awesome for lounging around (doing your nails!!) and i’ve been *living* in them for the last day or so. while i’m on the subject of nice-for-the-price with my nails, these pants are in the same boat! go check out evolve and snag some awesome deals!

unmentionables

there’s not a whole lot i can say here, other than…

09.11.2012

allarik && me are in our underpants. i’m in my unmentionables to show off new awesome stuffs, but he’s just eye candy (you’re welcome). and i suppose, this time, the snapshot speaks louder than my words ever could, hm? ;p

right! so i’ve been needing an excuse to get in touch with my sexy side and the latest mesh releases from onyx wear && red mint helped me do just that. lingerie is the thing i probably own the least of in my virtual closet, but pretty underthings like this make me *totally* happy to change that.

i honestly thought that bras ‘n’ panties were probably the one thing i would not like (or need) in mesh — clothing layers seemed to do the job fairly well. but that was *before* i tried them and these sets from onyx wear are so sexy it hurts. little details, like lace trims and teeny bows, when combined with how well they fit and how *realistic* it looks on… they are just delicious and i’m afraid the few pieces of clothing layer lingerie i do own won’t be getting much use anymore.

09.11.2012

there are lots of patterns to choose from (i think my personal fave out of the bunch is the candy rainbow set in the upper left pic, so cute!) and are def worth checking out. i love that the bra and panties are separate mesh pieces, which made fitting a breeze for me since i could mix-and-match sizes. plus *nothing* is sexier than a bra you can cam all around. …i’m just sayin’.

and of course, the corset i’m wearing… also new && also mesh, from red mint. i am a *sucker* for corsets, i absolutely love them. and with mesh, my love for them has only grown leaps and bounds. the one i’m wearing here comes with the collar attached as well as a version without the collar included… and again, lots of choice when it comes to color and pattern (including tartan! the tartan corsets are aaaaaaaawesome, too~).

you can read more about the corset here && the underwear here if you’re interested in seeing *all* the colors and styles available. and go get in touch with your sexy side too… ’cause it’s fun.

09.11.2012

…lots of fun. 😉

romantic

while searching for a pretty, spring-time sim to snap some pictures on, bff vivi && i stumbled upon a gorgeous place called calas galadhon. there were so many li’l spots to sneak a sweet, romantic moment (tandem bike rides.. a hot air balloon!).. and lots of places perfect for taking photographs.. that she and i *totally* felt the love in the air~

shame it was just with my best friend! ;P

05.09.2012

at least she and i looked pretty! ehe.

well, we always look pretty.. but still. ahah.

05.09.2012

vivienne and i both *really* loved the latest mesh releases from cold logic.. so much so that we both decided to wear tops from the newest set. hers, with the cut-out sleeves and low neckline, is in stunning shades of coraly pink, soft peach && pastel yellow.. all swirled together in a pattern that looks very much like it’s all been water marbled.

she paired the top with a pair of pastel mesh jeans from maitreya in the prettiest baby pink… as well as *two* grabs from the culture shock event — her hair, from exile && her shoes (which were freebies!) from g field. lovely in pink, with accents of yellow.. my bestie is covered head-to-toe in springtime shades and looking fabulous in it~

05.09.2012

i, too, was feelin’ the yellow for today.. only instead of pink, i liked the color contrast of this perfect bright blue with it. as i said, my top is from cold logic as well && i *loved* the way this layered top drapes at the waist. it’s flowy and feminine and this color combo really stood out to me.. all of which make for an adorable top that’s easily one of my favorites released thus far.

so i grabbed a pair of mesh white shorts from jane to match.. and a pair of platform sandals from slink, a golden tasseled necklace from glow studio (that’s discounted @ the dressing room blue!) && a soft, side-swept hairstyle from lelutka completed the look.

of course, i had a blast roaming the sim with my bff… but just look at how wonderfully built && landscaped it is. as cheesy as it sounds, it would be *perfect* for a sl date night… *hint hint*… but is just as lovely for some quiet exploration by yourself~

my (not so) peaceful morning

waking up early in the morning usually isn’t my thing. i’m more of a *night owl* myself && would much prefer to keep the sleeping schedule of a vampire rather than wake up at ungodly hours in the morning. but when i do get to sleep at a decent time and wake up bright ‘n’ early, i realize that mornings aren’t so bad after all…

04.25.2012

a nice hot shower, a cup of fresh coffee.. and a few moments to myself to enjoy the quiet really is a lovely thing. there are birds singing, waves rolling in on the beach just outside my window, && the soft glow of sunrise just barely peeking in the windows. it’s the epitome of serene.

or, well, it can be the epitome of serene… at least while sleeping beauty there stays in bed. luckily for me, lars will allow me to have a big whopping half hour to myself while he smacks the snooze button && gets in a few more winks.. so i can shower, dry my hair, and have a cup of coffee before he drags himself out of bed.

04.26.2012

but, to be fair, i *do* get some extra quiet time while he’s in the bathroom too. it’s funny how routines get started, and how they always seem to work like clockwork, because i can always get partially dressed && fiddle with my hair and makeup a li’l bit before he’s out of the shower. by the time i’m grabbing my shoes, he’s usually all squeaky clean.

and then suddenly, my peaceful morning is not quite so peaceful anymore.

04.26.2012

take this morning, for example. i’m stepping into my heels, feeling deliciously sexy in my new lingerie, and in comes lars from the bathroom…

“hey vix, lookit this! no hands!”

…how charming.

i tell him that must take *so* much talent to do… but because it is just a li’l annoying (and distracting), he finds it to be the most hilarious thing ever. i’m trying to figure out what i wanna wear for the day, and good ole lars takes it upon himself to cackle insanely && *dance around* the bedroom with his … towel.

04.26.2012

i can’t brush my hair, or even get to my vanity without him poppin’ up (no pun intended) next to me to wiggle the .. towel .. at me. i try to pretend i don’t care, that it doesn’t bother me, but he somehow knows it really does && it only fuels the fire that much more.

i mean, just *look* at him. he is obnoxiousness personified! stark naked save for that blasted simpsons towel, laughing and doing what can only be described as the worst dance in all of humanity… and he is having a blast while i just wanna put my clothes on, damnit!!

so in my infinite wisdom, i decide to think.. and think fast. what, exactly, would give me my beautifully peaceful morning back? what could i possibly do to distract lars in return, so i can finally finish getting ready? tell a white lie and say i made breakfast downstairs and when he leaves the bedroom, close && lock the door? ask him to get me another coffee refill and when he leaves the bedroom… close && lock the door? grab my own towel and whip his bare, annoying ass with it so he goes running out of the bedroom like a li’l wuss, then close && lock the door??

hmm..

04.26.2012

…or i could forget getting fully dressed, for just a while, and take him back to bed. which, to be perfectly honest, did not make my morning any more *peaceful*… but certainly more… ahem… fulfilling.
