You Know You’re A Cute Little Heartbreaker

Hello bunnies! I hope you all are having a fantastic weekend! Uber is open, so you need to go go go!

Style - You Know You're A Cute Little Heartbreaker

Truth has the most adorable hat and hair combo for Uber! Foxy is just everything I could have wanted for this time of the year. It’s a lovely long, wavy style topped off by a cute knitted fox hat! So much love! The hat comes with a HUD so you can tint him to match other outfits, but I went more natural with the brown.

Happy shopping!

Smile Shape Tutorial!

No photos today because I did a video tutorial! I KNOW, I’M SCARED TOO!

I take a lot of “action” photos when I’m hanging out with my family and friends and doing the Photoshop trick where you take 2 photos with a smile and without so you can cut and copy and paste doesn’t always work since there is no guarantee that I’ll be in the same exact position twice. When I mentioned my smile shape, several of my friends didn’t know what I was talking about, so I thought I’d do a little video just in case others might want to give it a try.

Sorry for my rambling. I was nervous. 🙂

Multicolored Moods of Love

I’ve always loved butterflies. Not just because they’re pretty, but because they’re a symbol of transformation. We all change, in one way or another. I’m not the same person I was 5 years ago. We change and if we’re lucky, we change into better people, just like caterpillars change into beautiful butterflies.

Style - Multicolored Moods of Love

I fell in love with the Papillon set by GizzA that is out at Shiny Shabby right now. It includes the necklace and the eye accessory. I don’t know how often I’ll need butterflies for my eye so I will probably use these again somewhere in my hair.

Happy shopping, butterflies!

Got To Kiss Myself, I’m So Pretty

Do you ever just have REAL trouble taking a picture of yourself? I was asked to send a headshot in for something I’ll be blogging in the future and it filled me with dread. I am the WORST at taking headshots of myself! I can do a regular blog picture all day, every day [well, if I’m not lazy], but headshots confuse me. I stomped around yelling about how I looked stupid. Luckily, Truth has a terrific new hair for Uber that has a nice starry barrette, so it helped a whole lot to make me pretty!

Got To Kiss Myself, I'm So Pretty

Esther is new for Uber and I adore it! The hair is actually pretty long, past the chest, but I couldn’t fit it all in to this particular picture. I just love the hair clip because I’m a sucker for anything with stars and any kind of hair accessory. The Uber theme this month is “Celestial,” so of course it goes perfectly with the theme!

I hope everyone had a great weekend!

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!!

The Beach Is For Lovers

It’s the end of February and I don’t know about you guys, but I consider the first of March to be the start of spring, no matter WHAT the weather is doing outside! So I ran out to our little beach because I love the water and the sunshine so much, I couldn’t wait another day!

Style - The Beach Is For Lovers

Truth released some new hair a few days ago, and two of the hairs come with headbands – one for Lovers and one for Haters. The headbands are detachable, so I’m wearing the Haters hair with the Lovers headband. Such a rebel, right? But both hairs are gorgeous! They’re somewhat similar, but the Lovers hair is a little sweeter and has bangs. [My sister is wearing it in her blog post, so you can see it there.] I liked the Haters hair a little more because I don’t always look great in bangs. I have a weird head!

Enjoy the last day of February, everyone!

Go On And Do What Your Heart Tells You To

Happy New Year, readers! And what better way to start off a new year than with a new round of FaMESHed??

Style - Go On And Do What Your Heart Tell You To

IKON is in this round of FaMESHed with the new Promise eyes. I love these because they almost remind me of some eyes I had back in late 2007, but just fresh and updated. And if you don’t like to always wear the mesh eyeballs, there is a regular texture version included that is just as pretty.

Also at FaMESHed, the classy new Emily hair from Wasabi Pills, the very pretty Royal Khadijah Estate necklace from Maxi Gossamer, and the super cute Peplum Sweater Combo from Coquet. As you can see, it is a FANTASTIC month at FaMESHed!!

Happy shopping!

Thanks To 2013!

Happy New Year’s Eve, my friends! This is my last post of 2013 in this blog, and I have stuff to say!

Style - Thanks to 2013!

I wanted to say an enormous THANK YOU to all the SL creators who allowed me to blog for them this past year. Clothes, hair, shoes, poses, and home decor – plus everything in between – you all are the the reason why Second Life remains amazing year after year. You guys keep us looking good, posing pretty, and keep our houses looking more gorgeous than anything we could have ever hoped for. It’s been a true honor this past year to use your creations and I am so looking forward to what you guys come up with in 2014!

And to my readers – thank you. Every time I post something and someone favorites a pic on flickr or IMs me to say “I saw what you showed and had to go buy it!” I seriously feel proud. What I do is not as big as what the creators of SL do, but I’m happy when you guys take the time to let me know that you like what I do. If bloggers didn’t have readers, we’d have nothing. ♥

Please be careful if you’re going out tonight and I’ll see you next year!

So Let Me Be A Sparkle One Night

FaMESHed and The Arcade are still going strong!

Style - So let me be a sparkle one night

IKON has released mesh eyes for FaMESHed! I’m wearing the Spectral eyes in blue. They’re easy to adjust to fit really any eye holes [I guess you’d call them eye holes??] and you get the sizes like you get with the regular IKON eyes. I am not SURE if you can wear two different colors, but I don’t see why you wouldn’t be able to.

I’ve been wearing the Daisy hair by D!va for The Arcade probably since the moment I got my hands on it! It’s all messy and lovely and I think the stars on the headband are perfect for the holiday season. Of course, you CAN turn the stars off…but why would you want to?

I hope everyone is staying warm and safe this weekend!
