I’m Gonna Have A Fantasy

Just a quickie today! Take that however you’d like.

Style - I'm Gonna Have A Fantasy

Have you been out to My Slink Obsession yet this month? You need to go! Stellar has this fantastic Leg Corset tattoo for your Slink Physique body! I really like how most tattoos look on the mesh bodies but finding nice ones that are simple is kind of hard! So many go overboard with coating your whole body, so it’s awesome that Lexi made these that are specifically for your calves.

This is the last round of My Slink Obsession until April, so hurry on out there to do some shopping!

She Believed In The Unexpected

Sometimes I just get a vision in my head of a photo and I just have to attempt to create it in SL. I like when unexpected things like that happen, especially since my ideas are often much bigger than my skills!

Style - She Believed In The Unexpected

I’m only kind of familiar with PurpleMoon and what I do know of them, they make gowns and jewelry. But as luck would have it, I found this great Adele suit there! I think it’s quite sexy even though it is also conservative.

Rebel Hope has some great heels out at FaMESHed this month. The Maria heels are strappy and studded, and have an option for a bow in the front. I didn’t wear the bow for this photo because it would have been too floofy.

Have a wonderful day!

Can Heather find a job that won’t interfere with her tan?

I know, I already did a post today, but Berry did a Yearbook Smile Challenge today that I couldn’t resist! Of course, if I’d ever looked this pretty in any of my RL yearbook pics, I think I would have dropped dead. So that’s the first rule of taking a good yearbook picture, I guess. Just be good looking already. *laughs*

Challenge - Yearbook Pic

I get asked a lot why I smile in so many of my photos. The simple answer is that I’m happy and that tends to come out in my pictures. But truthfully, it’s more that I cannot stand photos where people are just staring dead-eyed even though it’s supposed to be a photo that conveys some kind of emotion. There are, of course, photos where a just neutral face is appropriate and that’s fine. But if you’re taking a picture where you’re supposed to be jumping for joy and yet you look like you’re just waiting for your car’s oil change to finish up, well… that doesn’t make for a very good picture in my opinion.

I don’t really like any of the mesh mouths out there. I find that mostly they make people look like there’s a good chance that person cannot put on their own shoes. And as I like my face, I haven’t bothered with mesh heads. The regular avatar face is NOT the easiest to work with and the emotes we can do with our faces aren’t always great, but you can make it work. I have a different shape for smiling. The eyes are bigger and wider, the cheeks are slightly more puffy, and I messed with my mouth while smiling until it became something I could work with. I do use a little bit of Photoshop, too, because my teeth tend to poke out a little bit in the corners when I smile. I will say that the Pink Fuel skin I’m wearing smiles really well. I’ve had other skins where no matter what I did, the smile never looked right. So if you have that problem, it really just might be your skin and not your shape.

Thanks for a fun challenge, Berry!!

I’ll Be There For You

I’ve been binge watching Friends all weekend and the theme song has been stuck in my head. I was trying to come up with a better title for this post, but the song is all I can think about. Dang you, Friends!! Oh right – shopping!

Style - I'll Be There For You

I headed out to The Chapter Four and picked up this cute Natalie outfit by GizzA. It’s a little bustier and a mini skirt with a peplum. Very cute, and it worked with my Maitreya body, so double snaps for that! I also played the LODE gacha there and got the Hortensia Branch in the mixed color. I am so all about cute head stuff lately, especially flowers! And it works with the Vera hair by MINA, also found at the event. So so so much cute out there!

Did you know that Mandala is having a sale? Yep! 30-70% off everything in the store! I picked up the Kyara jewelry set and let me tell you, it was a steal! The sale is only for 10 days, and some older items will be retired afterwards, so you need to head out there and shop now!

Have a great Monday!

A Little Clutter Never Hurt

One of the things that makes me happy in SL is when I can have a bunch of little knick knacks out. It used to be almost impossible to make anything too terribly cluttery because of prim limits. While we still do have the limits, with mesh and awesome mesh makers who can make cute cute things for just 1 tiny land impact, we can have all the knick knacks we want.

Style - A Little Clutter Never Hurt

The new Amy Bookshelves by MudHoney out at FaMESHed this month are everything my little clutter-lovin’ heart desires! You can buy one color of the bookshelves, which do come apart into 3 separate ones and have texture change backs, and pick and choose from the different accessories. But you’re really going to want to buy the whole accessories pack that includes 8 book sets, 2 candles, owl, trinket box, 3 frames, 4 vases, 2 plants, and a basket. Since the accessories are copy/mod, you can do as I’ve done and use more and mod pieces to be bigger or smaller and they’re only 1 land impact each! And of course, the shelves look great with some of your own items, too, like I’ve added for this photo.

Happy clutter makin’!

If You’re A Bird, I’m A Bird

It’s the freakin’ weekend, baby, I’m about to have me some fun! Ugh, did that just totally make me seem lame? Oh well, I’ve never been accused of being sophisticated. 🙂

Style - If You're A Bird, I'm A Bird

Rebel Hope has a great coat and leggings set at FaMESHed this month! The Michella coat and leggings set is quite simple and elegant, which suits me just fine in the winter when I want to throw something on that doesn’t require me to think too much. I KNOW I’m going to look pretty and appropriate with this on! With each color of the coat, you get 5 colors of the leggings. I will say, though, that I had a bit of trouble getting a hair to really work with the collar of the coat since it is popped. Maybe one day we’ll have hair that knows where to stop, huh?

Speaking of hair, Wasabi Pills is out at Uber this month with the Kitty hair. I love a good, full, thick wavy hair and this fits the bill very nicely.

Happy weekend shopping, dear ones!

If We Want To See The Rainbow We Have To Put Up With The Rain

The title of my post today is one of my favorite quotes. Too often we get swept up in just wanting everything to be perfect all of the time and life just isn’t perfect. But before you know it, good things happen again.

Style - If We Want To See The Rainbow We Have To Put Up With The Rain

I love the new Mila dress by Coquet out at FaMESHed this month! It’s a simple little dress with a long cardigan over it, just kind of cute and sweet. It’s a little more low cut in the front than I’d like and there are some areas on the sleeves that don’t quite work with my Slink hands, but in general, I really like this dress.

Uber opened up on New Year’s Eve and Fri.day is out there with the terrific new Isabelle heels. They have a super tall heel, a great platform, and are topped by a cute little bow. The Isabelle heels fit the high Slink, Belleza Venus, and Maitreya Lara feet.

Happy shopping!

Tomorrow is the first blank page of a 365-page book

Happy New Year’s Eve!! This post is less of a fashion post and more of a thank you. I wanted to give a HUGE HUGE HUGE thank you to the wonderful designers and event coordinators that took a chance on me this past year and have allowed me to blog their lovely creations and for their fabulous events. I may not have been able to blog as often or as quickly as you might have wanted this year, but believe me when I say that I am grateful for everything! I promise I’ll try to do better for you guys in 2015! And of course, an enormous thank you goes to my sweet readers!! I am thrilled beyond measure every time I blog something and someone says, “I had to go buy that!” Without readers, there would never be a reason to blog anything, and don’t think that we ever forget that! 🙂

Have a safe and happy New Year’s Eve and I’ll see you next year!!
