bunny hood

with rl as busy as it has been lately, it seems the only times i can get a moment to myself to take pics for my bloggity here.. are on the weekends. no me gusta. i’m hoping my free time gets a bit more ample here soon, otherwise i am gonna go a li’l insane methinks.

but at least i always have retail therapy in sl to make it aaaaall better~

bff vivi && i hit up a few places over the weekend… and we both about *died* over these new mesh hoodies from aura, which are out @ the new round of fameshed. there were so many colors to pick from and each one has an adorable hood complete with long bunny ears attached.. vivienne and i could not say no. she picked a pretty purple shade, while i went with black and lime green, and both are so super cute! looove these!

06.03.2012

vivi decided to pair her hoodie with some denim shorts, from mon tissu, and a hair she also picked up at fameshed by wasabi pills. it’s simple and it’s short, but it’s *so* cute. i like the over-the-eye bangs and the short, whispy ends make this style just adorable.. and of course, my bff is just too cute for words to begin with. ❤❤

06.03.2012

i’m wearing my version of the sweatshirt with a pair of rolled-up jeans from tres blah, some flats from ufo that i snagged @ collabor88, a *gorgeous* updo from exile that’s discounted at the dressing room blue && a *dollarbie* headband from monso that’s offered at the bombi event. there’s lots of goodies at bombi if you haven’t gone.. including an entire wall of lucky boards and gifts/cheapies dotted around in several of the designer’s stalls. plus the build is sooo cute and so are the rest of the items there. definitely worth checkin’ out, if for no other reason than to stalk those lucky boards — the version on the boards of this headband i’m wearing, i will have you!!

pink && green

new skin from pink fuel(!!!!!), new really amusing jewelry from amorous && a new *freebie!* piercing set from haus of darcy… seems as if these designers want me to *die* of happiness.

05.28.2012

i’m a li’l late when it comes to the skin addiction event, but when i saw there was a new pink fuel skin there.. just waiting for me to grab it.. i *knew* i had to go. and i am in loooooove. ❤ i love these lips, i love the two makeup choices (there’s scene, which i’m wearing here with dark eyes and glossy lips, and classic which has a less dramatic eye but has *perfect* red lips), i just love this face. i’m not sure which skin i like more, this alena skin or the alyx skin mochi milena has been teasing us with, but either way.. i *cannot* wait for the full release of either one! /me foams at the mouth

the necklace i’m wearing, from amorous… well. if you clickie that picture and make it larger, you’ll be able to see the message on the pendant. and i am sure you’ll fully understand why it amuses me so. 😉

05.28.2012

and let us not forget… freebie piercings from hod! the set of 4 omega nose gauges are *freeeeeeee* for the men only hunt, which started on the 26th && only runs for *two weeks*. while the prizes are more geared towards the guys, aydan darcy included both large && small sizes of these piercings to make ’em easier to fit on the ladies, too. which makes me so happy, because these bright, rainbowy colors are something you don’t normally find in hod’s already unique piercings… so the fact that i can wear these too is totally appreciated.

and they are completely free! all you gotta do is find ’em (so if you need a hint as to the prize location, check here and good luck!)~

up, up && away~

this latest round of stumblebum is so cute. the colors are perfect for summer: bright pink, cool cyan, lime green && a very juicy shade of orange. and with a theme of *insanity*, you can just tell the designers this round had lots of fun putting their items together.

these balloon poses, for instance, are from glitterati… and oh my god, i about died over these! how cute are they!? the balloon prop is color change and every single pose is just adorableness. what is *not* to love about flying around with a brightly colored balloon in your hand?

the tee, bracelets, mesh shorts, tank top && necklace i’m wearing above are also all stumblebum items.. from rezipsa loc, handverk, e! && dark mouse. the palette this round worked *so* nicely together — every single color reminds me of summery, fruity drinks or icy cold popsicles and, of course, i am such a sucker for that specific shade of bright pink.

colors like this just scream happiness.. it is hard to *not* smile when you surround yourself with such bright, vibrant hues. and balloons, too.. it is definitely hard not to smile when toting around a balloon on your finger. weeeee!

dressed

sometimes, a girl just needs a dress…

05.11.2012

..or two.

i am *not* the girliest girl, not by a long shot, but i can appreciate a dress every now && then. my taste in dresses is usually less.. ruffly and “lady like” and, rather, more… well.. less is more. so i decided to put together two looks for today, built around two short mesh dresses i’ve picked up this last week in world.

05.11.2012

the first is from paper doll, which is out for stumblebum this round. it’s skin tight, *just* short enough, and comes in some lovely color choices.. including this fading white-to-pink one i chose to wear here. li’l dresses like this are perrrr~fect for the upcoming warmer months && look just as nice with a pair of high heeled pumps as it would with, say… a pair of wedge sandals and some sunglasses. plus since it’s stumblebum, that means it’s *discounted* (25% off, to be exact!)… which always makes dress shopping that much more enjoyable~

05.11.2012

and speaking of discounts… this month’s round of collabor88 rolled over a few days ago. collabor88 is one of my *favorite* sales events and this month’s collection really bowled me over. there were so many cute things there this go ’round, it was honestly a li’l overwhelming! but i *did* manage to snag a few things amidst my bewilderment, including this dress i’m wearing here, from boom. which, tbph, is actually labeled as a long, baggy t-shirt… but to me? it looks like an adorable cotton minidress.. and worked rather well that way (but remember to wear panties, i’m *just* sayin’! ;)).

the earrings i’m wearing in both looks are also out @ collabor88, from intrigue co. the dangly charms are shaped like unicorns… unicorns(!!).. and come in sets that were made to mix && match colors. i probably didn’t pick the perfect hairstyle to show these earrings off (but i could not resist wearing this insanely cute style from ploom that i grabbed at culture shock), so you’ll just have to take my word for it. oooorrrr go try the earrings yourself to see! really, really cute.. and i did mention they were unicorns, right? because they are! unicorns!

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..

05.07.2012

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

05.07.2012

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.

new couch

05.02.2012

this new coppola sofa from cheeky pea (which is out for stumblebum this round.. but more on that later!) is sooooo cute. as often as bff vivi && i switch bits ‘n’ bobs of furniture out of the other living room, this sitting area in our house has been relatively untouched once we finished decorating it… last summer. but when i saw this couch, and this pretty minty green color it comes in.. along with the coffee table && decorations… i knew our sitting room needed a new place.. to.. well… sit.

plus the animations in said couch are *adorable* (single, couple and friend poses) && it comes with its own set of rezzable props as well, including the laptop you see above (and, i mean, this pose is called blogging… how could i *not* photograph it?!). really nicely made.. and it’s on sale, too!

05.02.2012

some other goodies in this round of stumblebum include the ruffly cropped top i’m wearing here in the prettiest shade of lavender, from aura.. which is, quite frankly, summer-in-a-top. it’s mesh and fit me with minimal adjusting… and is both sexy and girly all wrapped into one. ❤❤

the light pink lipgloss && *gorgeous* eyes from insufferable dastard, also out for stumblebum. i have, literally, about 39248348 pairs of aqua, teal && blue eyes (my own preferred colors for eyes), but i can really appreciate when someone can take blue eyes.. and actually make ’em *different*. these eyes are rimmed around the pupil with a gradation of yellow && pink that fade so nicely into an almost mint-tinted blue. they come in varying color-intensities as well (i’m wearing the medium shade here, so there’s one brighter and one darker included) *and* you get several lipgloss tattoo layers along with the eyes.

aaaaand! *all* of the poses in my photographs today are stumblebum offerings, too. it’s a good round this time, no joke! i’m sure i could ramble on && on about the other items out for stumble that i’m not featuring here, just ’cause everything is so awesome this go ’round, but i do have a new couch to break in, after all..

bright

04.19.2012

being purposely mismatched can be so fun sometimes! \o/

not that there’s anything wrong with wearing different shades of orange && lime green together normally…

ahem.

warmer weather just seems to *need* brighter colors.. the more vivid, the better.. so i dressed to match that sort of feeling with some vibrant hues, but still tried to keep it “springtime appropriate”.

04.19.2012

it all started with this mesh jacket from cold logic, which i grabbed because i was drawn to this yummy orange shade. i *always* gravitate towards grayscale, i often find myself picking up items in black or white or gray only… so i’ve been trying to incorporate more *colors* into my virtual wardrobe lately. and it seems to be working, my eyes are drawn to brighter colors.. and this jacket (which actually comes with a tube top that you can wear with the jacket, or separately too! three pieces in one! \o/) came in so many pretty choices that i actually ignored the darker shades~

the soft, sherbet-colored tee underneath is actually a dress from avale that seemed to work just as well as a longer shirt… or, tucked into a pair of mesh jeans like i’m wearing here. i’m guilty of doing this often — wearing mini-dresses as longer shirts — but it’s *such* a good idea (not to toot my own horn, ahaha, it def wasn’t my idea first!). it essentially doubles your wardrobe && i am all about the versatility when it comes to my sl clothing choices.

and is it wrong that i matched my hair to my shoes? suppose that’s a question that only works in second life… haha. i’m not sure if it’s some sort of fashion faux pas to match the color in your hair streaks to the color you pick for your shoes, like matching your belt to your handbag? but! i am in *love* with these dip-dye colors from ploom && needed a reason to use these candy-colored streaks. i’ve loved streaked hair from the beginning (fun fact: the first prim hair i bought was blonde with black tips && ever since then, i’ve pretty much always leaned towards streaked or two-tone hair) and the latest releases from some of my hair faves like magika, burley && of course ploom have made me so happy! moooooore streaks && crazy colors, i say!

plus, this super cute bun hairstyle is out for stumblebum — which means it’s discounted && *so* worth picking up while it’s on sale!

04.19.2012

bright orange && neon green… reminds me of fresh citrus fruit. colors that taste as good as they look are always win imho~

work spaces

sometimes, i wish it was as easy in rl as it is in sl to drag everything outside && work in the sunshine..

04.13.2012

..i swear i’d be much more productive if i could work with an ocean view!

this set of table && chairs from cheeky pea, which is out for this round of stumblebum (and there’s still a few days left to take advantage of the sale!) was perfect to migrate outside.. absolutely *everything* i’d ever need is included with it. four chairs, should i feel like having some company out on our patio, a pot of tea, cellphone, notebooks, pencils, laptop, potted plant.. even bottles of nail polish, if i feel like givin’ myself a new manicure.. and it’s all on a rezzer so you can have all of it, a li’l of it, or none of the tabletop clutter depending on your preferences! \o/

04.13.2012

plus the upholstery on the chairs are texture-change && each seat has a different set of poses inside… which correspond to the items rezzed on the table in front of each seat. so much detail in this set, i’m pretty much in love with it~

04.13.2012

so since the table was more of the *focus*, and since there’s so much packed in on the table top, i decided to dress more simply for my look for today. and it all centers around this sweater && skirt *mesh* set from tres blah out @ collabor88. i loved this color combo of pale pink, dark brown && olive green.. and the entire ensemble is wonderfully textured. simple but cute, and so easy to pair with some knee socks from fri.day && a pair of boots (and a mesh hairstyle!) from elikatira.

i dunno about you, but i work *so* much better when i’m relaxed.. and there is very little on earth (or in the virtual world!) that’s more relaxing than having the ocean just a few feet away. warm breeze, the smell of salt in the air, and the rhythmic crashing of waves… ahh… just as conducive to working peacefully as it is to lounging with the sun on your face!

lemon && mint

lemon && mint… are a delicious combo. peppermint tea mixed with a li’l lemon juice.. or a mojito with lemon instead of lime? yuuuuuuuum.

it is one of my personal favorite flavor combos, so i decided to do my own take on minty lemon with my look for today..

04.03.2012

..which, coincidentally, is also a round-up of items from various sales events going on right now! \o/

stumblebum has a new round of goodies up, all in shades of cool teal, warm yellow && bright peach. the lacey cropped top i’m wearing is part of the set out @ kyoot, my hair and the adorable headband are from truth, and the pose in the picture above is one from the offerings at frooti. stumblebum is one of those events that i always get excited for — some of my absolute favorite brands, with color palettes that have always been so pretty (and work so well together, too!)… what is there to not be excited for?

another such sale that i get super pumped for.. is collabor88. since it’s the beginning of the month, that means a *new* collection is on its way. so i visited the other day, to do one last go-over of the things out now, and realized i bought these r2 pumps in minty-blue and hadn’t yet worn them. the color choices are to die for gorgeous (and i bought these same heels in lavender too, ’cause i liked ’em that much!) and this light turquoise is so, so pretty. the bow accent on the toes is a nice touch, too.. i am a sucker for li’l details like that!

04.03.2012

the cardigan i’m wearing, with its wonderful fluttery sleeves, is out @ the *last* fashionably late from ison. not only was i happily surprised by the price (just a mere *99L* per color), but i was also impressed with the fit… and how soft && flowy this garment looks. i had to have it in this pretty mint shade, but black… and gray… and beige… i may be coming back for you before the sale ends on the 8th.

the whole collection for fashionably late is definitely befitting of a fabulous end to a really great sales event.. there are *so* many designers && *so* many awesome items that i highly recommend checking it out before it’s all over!
