One Day I’ll Fly Away…

I’ve kinda been missing on the blog front lately.  Been getting wisdom teeth pulled, been moving to new land with Protest in SL and making it into a little paradise I never want to leave, and meeting new friends! ♥  I ponder dropping my blog from time to time, and when I get wrapped up with other things I definitely get very tempted…  But I dug some older pieces out of my inventory and had a cute summer look going on (to fit the theme of our very lush land!), so I decided maybe I should give blogging a try again. 🙂  Psst, if you like Truth hair, he has a sale on a few of the newer releases at the Truth District!

Pose by Leafy

Gmok the Wise seems to have found this cute little summer style very stunning!  Or maybe he disapproves…  Anyways, on to the full body shots and the credits, cuties!

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!

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.

Shades of Grey

Protest and I have been living in a magical winter wonderland, thanks to his wonderful skills at decorating the home area.  I got the urge to get a little foxy again, and I really feel a bit like an arctic fox in all the snow.  I can’t step out without feeling like I should be bundled up, so we got together and did some wintery outfits to share. ♥  I gotta say, warm clothes and snuggles are the best way to get through chilly weather!

And here’s a song from a band that holds a special place in my heart.  This song is gorgeous, and the intro makes me giggle!  What’s not to love?

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. ♥

Kissed by a Rose

I’m pretty thrilled with a few things in SL, right now.  Turnip’s Homes and Stuff released a fall version of the skydome Protest and I keep our house in, so now it finally looks like we’re moving past spring!  I still need to find some more fitting grass and maybe a tree or two, but I’ve got some ideas in mind.

This really helped encourage today’s bundled up look!  I got a cute new sweater from Blah. that I absolutely adore.  The line has a lot of bold and cutesy graphic options, and I picked the fox immediately.  They’ve been my favorite fluffy animal for a while, so it was no surprise.  The bottom prim for the shirt was easy to edit as you could adjust in one direction (width, height, depth) if you preferred, instead of only being able to size the whole item smaller or larger.  I had no trouble matching up the pattern from the layer to the prim because of this.  Being sculpted, extreme hip motions in poses can affect the fit and cause clipping, but it’s honestly pretty ao friendly!  I don’t mind wearing it out and about at all.  I also got a cute scarf from Tokidoki, a new store for me.  With some adjusting on size and orientation, and a little extra tinting, it added a really nice touch. ♥

And because it’s been in my head, and I’ve been listening and singing along for quite some time now, I thought I’d share the music of my mind with you.

“I compare you to a kiss from a rose on the grey,
Oooh, the more I get of you the stranger it feels, yeah…”

Zombie Killah!

It’s the time of year where we all must make a conscious choice…  To join the zombies, or fight against them!  Though in years past, I have had my moment of joining the undead army, I’ve chosen to put my FPS skills to the test and defend humanity from being consumed by the zombie population.  Will you join me in the fight to save all those still living?!

Though it’s a little hard to see in the pictures, I have some fun ear gauges from Pekka.  They’re Halloween themed and come in a pack with several bright, nice image quality options.  The guns used in this outfit are from Carnage.  Not only are they very nicely detailed, but they are functional and I have a great time shooting things up with ’em in sims that allow it.

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!

Purple Pandemonium!

Wanted to get a quick update in to let you guys know I’m still alive!  This weekend I grabbed a few goodies from different events, Grunge Soul Project and Collabor88.  I’m sure I’ll be heading back to find more stuff soon, but for now I’m a wee bit broke.  Bringing you the Bubblegum Weekends look with shades of purple and a cute short hairstyle from Elikatira, and fawning over some goodies from Pekka.  I love the different color options available in the Kere Lipline pack from Pekka, so I thought I’d share all those today!

Also, since I was going to spend so much time focusing on my face today, I decided to go with one of the prettiest faces I have!  It’s the limited edition version of Zan from Leafy, and Kaethe still has it available for a couple more days in her store.  Be sure and go get it before you miss out.  It’s a beautiful face and very suitable for adding different makeup layers and still looking lovely.

*Leafy Love!

After some absolutely delicious teaser previews, *Leafy owner Kaethe Dyrssen has released a beautiful limited edition of Zan in two tones, Lumiel and Dusty!  I’ve been pretty excited about *Leafy skins ever since she released Luna at the skin fair this year, and Zan has simply improved on an already beautiful style.

These skins come with several options.  You can choose between three different brow colors, freckles, and cleavage!  The cleavage is a new addition to her skins and I absolutely love having it available.  She’s also been so kind as to make all these options available directly on the skin, leaving your layers free to play with.  The freckles are cute and subtle, so be sure to view the image full size to see the attention to detail.

And speaking of layers, Zan even comes with some very pretty lip gloss options, with matte versions available too.  I love the ability to change a style that just a different shade of lip gloss can achieve!

As if all this weren’t enough, Kaethe also released a beautiful shape that suits the skin nicely.  Raven is also a limited edition item, and comes with several different body types to please everyone’s interests.  I really adore her petite curvy frame and sweet face, so be sure to check her out!  There are packages available with the skin and shape as well as simply the skin, depending on your interest.  Just pick your favorite tone or grab up both!  They’re not something to wait around on as the number of copies available to the grid is limited, so be sure and get them before you miss your chance.
