Aura

Just in time for the chilly weather (it was 23° F here today!), Kaethe has released a limited edition skin with some stunning makeup and several features.  The eyeshadow is smokey and several different hues, reminiscent of the aurora borealis, and I can’t seem to take it off once I slipped into it!  The new and improved lips of the skin are glossy and look oh so very kissable, and even come with the popular slightly parted mouth option.  It’s a welcome and nicely done addition, and other options include 4 brow choices, a clean face or two different freckle choices, and cleavage or normal chest options.  I think my favorite thing about her variety of choices is that there is a skin with each combination directly on the skin, rather than having to load up on tattoo layers to achieve your desired look.  This leaves you free to use your layers for other things, which is always a win for me!  With so many possible combos for options, this gives you a total of 48 skins, and all are available for just 899L.

Hair: !lamb. Stereo – Powder

Zan is here!

The skin I’ve been dying to have for months has finally been released!  Zan from *Leafy is available now and I’m in love. ♥  Kaethe Dyrssen has been hard at work and it’s easy to see once you take a look at this beautiful new line.  Currently available in four tones, there’s something for everyone!  You can select from Lumiel, Peachy, Dusty, or Sunkissed.  I’m having a hard time settling on a favorite, myself.

Zan comes with a nice selection of options, as well.  You can choose from three different brow colors as well as freckles.  There’s also a cleavage addon you can snatch up if you’re so inclined!  I definitely am, and can attest that it adds a sultry touch that Protest is fond of, haha!

Now I’ll mention my favorite part.  Zan comes in a selection of 12 different makeups, packaged together in sets of two which compliment each other nicely.  I’ve snapped shots here of all the different pairs, so hopefully you can pick your own favorites!  I have troubles myself, but seem to be spending a lot of time in cottoncandy and cosmic.  If you love layering on different tattoo makeups, pure is a clean and lovely face that sets you free to experiment and create your own look!

Be sure to head to *Leafy, grab and try on demos, and pick up your favorites!  This skin is too gorgeous to resist. ♥

TP to Leafy!

Things to Keep You Warm at Night

I’m pleased to say things are finally beginning to get chilly in Texas!  It doesn’t stay that way, but the mornings and evenings are cool enough for a light jacket and I’m thrilled.  I was beginning to think we were going to have summer weather all the way into winter!  In celebration in the change in temperature, this blog post is all about the things that will keep you warm at night.  I’m featuring three…  Cozy sweaters, delicious lattes, and…  I think we all know what you can do to stay warm with a condom.

I really had way too much fun bugging Zaz tonight and singing “BOOTS WIF DA FURRRR!” at her. ♥  Joking aside, I adore these boots from Kookie down to their little fuzzy pompoms.  They’ve been in my inventory for almost a year and I’ve just never really gotten the right clothes to wear them with.  Hope you guys enjoy the look as much as I did!

And on that note, a pumpkin latte from Starbucks sounds like a good purchase for the day…  Hmm.

September Cuddles

I’ve been a little absent the last few days.  Protest and I celebrated six months together all weekend and on Tuesday (the actual date!).  I’ve also realized I kinda let myself go…  Between working and being cozy with a sweet guy, I haven’t put a lot of effort into taking care of myself.  As a result, it’s time for me to get busy again!  I started working out yesterday and have returned to the world of aching muscles and P90X pain.  It’s a long hard journey, but it’s very rewarding.  This isn’t my first time taking the path, but I’m determined to make a full run of it and keep it up!  No more chubby RL Lillian’s allowed!

September is here and I’m so ready for the comfy sweaters and cool weather snuggles.  Sadly, I’m in Texas and the weather hasn’t quite shifted here yet.  However, being in SL allows us the luxuries of ignoring RL weather and donning whatever suits our mood.  To welcome in that season I’m looking forward to, I snuggled up in an adorable top and decided to bring this blog post to you!

Necklace: Concrete Flowers
Sweaters: Izzie’s
Undershirt: L.inc
Jeans: The Whore
Boots: Miel

Today I had some favorite items I wanted to spotlight.  The Tinman necklace I wore was from one of the weekly sales events.  I grabbed it up because I thought it was cute and clever, but never got around to wearing it.  When I slipped it on today, I found out that it has some really nifty details!  Beyond the pretty detailed design of the clock, there’s a menu with options to set the clock to your timezone.  You can even adjust it to compensate for DST!  Also, I finally got around to purchasing the Far boots from Miel and have absolutely no regrets.  There’s several color options for the socks and they’re perfect to complete a fall or wintery look.  And as one can expect from Miel, the level of detail is beautiful.

That wraps up things for today!  Hopefully I’ll be posting more as I find a way to balance my new schedule with the workouts.

Baby Vamp

I seem to be getting into a habit of only updating at certain times…  Bubblegum Weekends and somewhat sporadically through the weekdays, but Wednesdays are always promising.  This is mainly because Wednesday is my day off from work, and I have extra time for fun things like reading, watching random movies, and blogging.

Protest and I have been watching True Blood together for a bit now, even though we’re a bit late on this week’s episode.  We’ll get to that later today, I hope!  Anyways, Jessica Hamby has a certain appeal that’s hard to deny.  She’s a character who sort of got thrown into an unexpected situation and keeps rolling with the punches, despite a roller coaster ride of emotional highs and lows.  Perhaps that’s the reason it’s easy to connect with her…  Though it’s not exactly like we’ve all been turned into vampires against our will, there are certain circumstances which are always beyond our control that may make life a bit more difficult than we had planned.

Hey, and she blogs!  HBO has made the most adorable little blog, reminiscent of musings from my high school days and livejournal, belonging to the self proclaimed baby vamp.  I think my favorite entry may be where Jessica simply plays with her fangs, practicing!  Honestly, it’s difficult to pick.  Either way, I think it’s an awfully fun idea and really adds a bit of character development that is hard to portray through a weekly show that follows the shenanigans of many other characters.

Because of this, I’ve been wanting to do a “baby vamp” inspired look for a while.  I’ve had the idea, I’ve known the skin I wanted, and had many other thoughts on it.  I think I got the push with a bad day at work yesterday and the tough times that Jessica Hamby is currently dealing with this season.  It’s been emotional, and it takes a toll on a girl.

I decided to be a little more detailed with the item descriptions today.  I like how much quicker it is to just type the store name, but if people prefer the full information, I can force myself to make the switch!  Vote on it?

Goodbye to Berries Inc.

Today I went to Berries Inc. to see if there were any snazzy new releases I had missed and was crushed to find a sign announcing a closing sale.  Yet another of my beloved casual stores in SL is closing, and it’s a sad, sad day.  If you haven’t visited before, it’s a great place to find simple but cute pieces for a relaxed and comfortable style, or for mixing and matching with other layers.  I’m bummed to see another amazing store go, but it’s a great opportunity to pick up some basic essentials at a price that’s easy on the ol’ linden wallet.  From now until September 12, all items at Berries are only 50L.  Definitely pop in and take a look, it’s well worth your time.

As my own salute and farewell to the store, all tops featured in today’s blog entry come from Berries Inc.  I also made a trip to Pepper recently and finally joined the group!  There’s a tiny fee, but it’s well worth it for the adorable group gift necklace currently out at the main store.  Yes, that is indeed a message in a bottle, on a string, around my neck!  And to fancy things up a bit, there’s even a strand with colorful beads.  It’s well worth the 100L group fee to join, and even includes a little nommy mouth piece with a dangling message in a bottle.  You know it’s hard for SL ladies to resist cute nommy objects…  Just something about that oral fixation!  On my trip to Pepper, I picked up some cute new flats as well.  Inexpensive and adorable means it’s a must have for me, so I eagerly picked up a pair with roses and bows.

“Sending out an S.O.S…”

Bubblicious

Anyone who knows me, whether it be in world or via this blog/flickr, is well aware of my love for Truth hair.  When I first found a good hair designer, it was Truth.  And much like a girl does when she finds a great hair stylist in real life, I keep going back for new cuts, styles, and dye jobs!  Today I was pretty thrilled to find two new releases that I adored so much I quickly grabbed up.  Thanks again, Truth!

Ricci and Erika are a lot of fun!  I’m rockin’ the “treacle” shade in that image, which goes really well with my current skin tone.  Yes, it’s still Elly from Pink Fuel, but I’ve decided to give my av a bit more of the real life me look.  My hair is a dark shade of brown, but it’s very difficult to capture in photography.  It’s one of those pet peeves of mine, as it’s always being mistaken for black hair.  I think this is the reason I avoid wearing black hair in SL.

But wait a minute, isn’t this the weekend?  Where are the colorful locks?!  Don’t worry, I went ahead and picked up Ricci in those bold colors and had a great time with an incredibly pink look, with a hint of purple.  Bubble gum and grape soda, maybe?  Not exactly the best combination when it comes to flavors, but it works pretty well for a color scheme!  I’m not normally one for prim nails, but my curiosity has been tempting me lately, and…  Jade Composer of The Secret Hideout made some cool new nails with an adorable little hello kitty design and… PINK LEOPARD!  How could I not work them into this outfit?

And with that lovely little update, I return to a world of snuggles and Supernatural with Protest!  I’ll leave you with a little Dean love to make your heart happy.  ♥

Dog Days of Summer.

Hurray!  Here’s the hybrid look I’d promised you.  It’s a day later than intended, Protest and I ended up being pretty busy on Sunday dealing with setting up a fabulous new house.  More on that later!  We achieved this look by purchasing a furry avatar (I know, I know, I’m not exactly a fan of furries either) from Mutation Industries.  The tail didn’t need any editing, except for a bit of sizing down.  The ears were a slightly different story, however!  They were attached to a big fox head that I had no intentions of wearing.  It ended up being a lesson in SL modding that I had yet to learn, but my lovely friend Crysta helped me out with some information on linking and unlinking prims.  Once I figured it all out, it was a simple fix!  I simply unlinked the prims, linked back the ears, and deleted all the prims left over on the floor, haha!  I felt quite accomplished when I had myself a set of fox ears to play with.

The pose above is from the Platinum Hunt 2 that’s going on now through August 31st.  It’s the gift from Diesel Works, and just one of many fabulous prizes.  Definitely check it out, a lot of great designers are involved!  CHIC Management certainly knows how to run a great event!

Feeling curious about what kept us so busy with the house yesterday?  As I promised, here’s the deal on our new home!  Protest and I’ve actually been living in the same skybox ever since we’ve gotten together.  We change up the houses in our “land at the bottom” from time to time, but our Absolution skybox stuck around.  I had a hard time letting go, but he finally managed to convince me it was time for a change.  It helped that Awesome Blossom, one of our favorite stores for homes and decor, also has an item in the Platinum Hunt.  It’s a really cute little house, but it encouraged me to take a peek at some of their other builds.  We ended up finding a slightly larger house that I fell in love with!  Between buying a skydome from Turnip’s Homes and Stuff and redecorating  the new place, we stayed very occupied last night.  We even stumbled across a pretty amazing little sim with some snazzy low prim and beautifully crafted items that we’ll probably revisit very soon.

It already feels like home. ♥

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!

Attention Whore.

I’ve done it again.  Another shift of hosting in Second Life that feels like a slap in the face.  I get it, you come to a club to hear music.  The DJ is the one with the power, he’s the one with the voice, he’s the one who put the thought into the sounds that are making you grin, or accompanying you as you flirt in someone’s IM box, or neglect some other part of your personal life that you’re hiding from in Second Life.  Of course, he’s the first one you think of to tip with some lindens!  But you see that little host you ignored?  Yeah, she spent time trying to make sure she created a look to be your eye candy.  She’s the one who took the time to greet you when you walked in, even if you ignored her cheerful salutations.  She’s the one who blows her lindens in trying to look new and refreshing so she can deliver a different experience to your visits.  She tries to keep the conversation going in local so that those who are lonely have someone to talk to as well, but no… Oh no, she doesn’t deserve to be tipped too.

Bah.

I go through entirely too much trouble to make almost half of what the DJ does.  I did have a bit of fun tying this look together, though.  At least there’s that…  It’s the subtle things that are really fun.  I love how the eyeliner I got from sorry.asia has a hint of red and goes nicely with the color scheme of the tattoo sleeves.
