Nova Release!

Kaethe recently released a wonderful new skin named Nova, and I think she’s absolutely stunning!  She comes in five tones, Cream, Lumiel, Peachy, Dusty, and Sunkissed.  Each skin comes with teeth, or an open mouth, freckles, and three different brow colors.  There are 8 different makeups, packaged together in pairs, and five different lip makeups on tattoo layers that also have the parted lip options.  It’s a great skin and well worth picking up, so swing by Leafy and try out Nova!

Teleport to Leafy!

Vintage via Mon Tissu

What began as an update to get a last minute reminder out about Elikatira’s amazing one year anniversary sale snowballed into a Mon Tissu fest!  To make things quick and simple, today’s look began with a hairstyle and flats from the [e] sale and it all led to a very sweet vintage look with a Mon Tissu outfit.  Simple and elegant style was accentuated with a soft floral shrug and a dainty but detailed golden necklace.  My favorite piece would have to be my first successful  mesh item.  I’ve tried on demos for different brands in clothing and hair and been unlucky so far.  I know you have to adapt to mesh instead of vice-verse, but I refuse to change my shape to the level with some items required.  Mon Tissu’s new pencil skirt, however, uses a mesh prim for the crotch as well as layers.  The two combine to make a perfect fit with the flexible aspects of mesh!

Before I forget, be sure and swing by Elikatira before the end of the 30th to take advantage of 70% off on all items, even fat packs!  The prices are great and I grabbed up quite a few packs of my favorites. ♥

BGW – Grape Soda

As you may have noticed lately, I’ve been on the hunt for stores that I haven’t shopped at before.  I guess that goes without saying, honestly, seeing as everyone is always searching for new looks and styles…  But I guess I’ve been putting a bit more effort into it as of late.  As favorite stores get cycled out due to closings, it’s time to find new blood and new fashions!  Tram is not a new store, but it’s one I hadn’t visited before.  I remember seeing some friends with the most adorable little frilly white halter top from the brand, and decided that today was time for me to get around to checking it out for myself.  I was thrilled to find that I liked much more than just the top I’d gone in search of!  I positively squealed over some sweet flats I found (in a nice selection of bright colors) as well as cute long knit coats and other accessories.  If you’re a little behind like myself, now is a great time to take a trip to Tram and see what you’ve been missing out on!

Visit Tram!

Fear not!  I did not forget Bubblegum Weekends!  I had originally planned to rock my friend Zaz’s favorite hair color from my wild colors days, coolmint by Truth.  However, once I snatched up the bright purple flats from Tram, it was clear that our flavor of the week would be a bit more grape oriented.  I’m also trying to begin coaxing myself to say goodbye to the skimpy summer clothing and shift into cool weather looks, like cozy sweaters and other goodies.  Living in Texas helps me hang onto the summer far longer than most, but…  It’s coming.  For now, summer continues to reign in my SL.  Hope you guys enjoy!

* Yes, Grixdale is closed.  However, all of the denim products Tyr produced under that label will soon be added to her current project, Aura!  This means if you missed out, you’ll get a chance again very soon.

FRUK, it’s Bubblegum Weekends again!

Apparently I only thought Protest and I were getting out of meeroos.  In reality, as we got a bit more involved in the process of attending auctions to sell the buggers off, it sparked the roo love again and we’ve actually PURCHASED a new baby.  It’s like some strange sort of crack… or the mob.  You only really get free if you’re dead. :/

But hey, we have a new hella cute baby out of it!  I’ve had a soft spot for the notched ear roos ever since I saw one on Jaiden’s flickr, so when one came up for a pretty reasonable price, Protest seized the day and went for it.  I’m pretty pleased with the adorable factor it brings to our little herd.  My only real complaint is that it belongs to Protest, so no notchy snuggles for me!

We wound up wandering the meeroo auction circuit for a bit tonight, and did a lot of ranting with Chucky Hollak and Freddy Krimmer.  Oh, the woes and rambles of roos!  I had a great time though, and got to witness the purchase of Chucky’s new rockstar roo with a long mane.  I really shoulda grabbed a quick snapshot, but unfortunately I fail at these things.  I did, however, remember that I had planned on doing a post about FRUK tees.  And since that devilish duo is brilliant at coming up with bold and lively t-shirts, Bubblegum Weekends seemed like the perfect time and combination!

To begin with, the look of the sim is unique enough that I felt it deserved some recognition.  No, you’re not waltzing into some bright house to pay a visit to FRUK Tees, nor are you creeping into a dark and gloomy house.  Instead, you’re landing in a field, dusting yourself off, and making sure you don’t get soaked by the sprinkler as you make your way to a series of big open barns covered with a huge collection of tees, ranging from vintage 80s love to current pop culture.  My own tiny stash of three tees (so far, but there are more on my list of must haves!) is a pretty good assessment of the variety.  Their tees also have a few wear options.  They’re flattering as just a fitted shirt on a clothing layer, but also have sleeve and shirt bottom prims.  There’s both a girlie fit as well as one for the guys, which can also double as a super long loose shirt on a female, giving the option to rock a t-shirt dress look.

New Approach?

Some days I’m cutesy for hosting, some days I’m skanky.  I’ve gotten tired of the crappy tips from skanky clothes, so it’s time for a cute look.  Honestly, I’ve wanted to do an outfit with this particular print option from Plastik’s Aeda slacks since I first laid eyes on them, but today was when I finally got the inspiration.  This ensemble is filled with cute little items I’ve had my eye on for some time but had delayed for some reason or another.  Those cute bow earrings?  Yeah, I didn’t think they’d work when I was so dedicated to being an elf that I was never seen without some sort of elf ears.  I’ve decided to me a bit more human for a while (Being Human, anyone?), so I took the opportunity to snatch the cute jewelry up from Bellballs.  Real life was a bit odd today, so after it all I came home and unwound while making Lil adorable.  Protest and I recently gave up on breeding a large amount of meeroos (around 40 live roos was our limit, I love decorating our houses far too much to allow them to eat up anymore prims than that) and began selling them off, which is very exciting in many ways.

1.)  This means we actually see some rewards, though they may be small, from the time and effort we put in.
2.) More prims!  We can get detailed with the decor!
3.)  Extra lindens, which means I can get some cute things in SL as well as cash in some to help out with a small bill or two.

Basically, the situation is an all around win!  I enjoyed meeroos for a bit, but it’s time for a break from dumping money into them with limited results.  Congratulations to all those who’ve had more luck with the game than we have!  You do show us some awfully cute roos.  *coughKAETHEcough*  As I ramble on, let me explain my little meeroo rant there.  I relaxed after work, put together the cute look, and then went and joined Protest at a meeroo auction where we did NOT manage to unload the particular one we had up for sale.  It was amusing, though.  We always find humor in the most simple little things and we definitely picked up a few inside jokes from this experience.  So without delay, let’s dive into some pure fashion and get on with the outfit!

And in case you thought I was joking about looking out of place when hosting at Zero in my cutesy style…  Have a peek!

Bellballs and FLF love.

I tend to avoid wearing earrings in SL because I don’t always feel like taking the time to tweak them to the right angles for elf ears, but I finally was encouraged to change that mindset by some jewelry from Bellballs.  There are several beautiful and detailed pieces within the store and it’s a great place to find eye candies for your ears and neck!  Beyond that, there’s a lovely design to the sim that makes it a very fun destination for wandering around.

Also, next Friday is the second birthday of Fifty Linden Friday and there are some truly fabulous stores on this week’s list.  I didn’t go for a full on FLF look for my post, but I am sporting a few items from the event.  Be sure and check The Rumor for some great coverage on each store’s product!
