You Can Always Be Found

The Boutique has opened for July, and it’s a safari themed event this month! I’m not exactly a jungle girl, but I found lots of great things that work even out of the rainforest. 🙂

Style - You Can Always Be Found

Glam Affair has a new skin for us called Katya. Oh, it’s pretty, y’all! Of course, I could say that about any Glam Affair skin. 🙂

Don’t you just love my necklace? It’s the new Safari by Cae and it’s just lovely! There are options to customize it, too. The set comes with the necklace, bracelets, earrings and rings. The ring and bracelet are really cool because they look like tusks!

One of the things I like about these events is that I almost always find a new-to-me store, and that store this round is Tabloid. It’s where my Nantes dress is from! I just love it because it’s the kind of girly sundress I’m constantly looking for. I am SO checking this store out later!

Head on over to The Boutique and go on your own shopping safari!

Wide Open Spaces

Oh, Mr. Hawks. I swear, when he releases a hair, the only thing I want to do is put it on and run around in it.

Style - Wide Open Spaces

Genesis might be my favorite out of this week’s releases. It’s long, beautiful, and with a great little braid. Love love love!

Also, if you were waiting for Truth to release at FaMESHed, the hair is there now, and it’s similar to Genesis but with a side braided loose ponytail. It’s gorgeous, too!

I have to go check out my head some more!

Berry’s Meme – Meet My Friend!

When Berry made her Meet My Friend meme, my first thought was to do it with my best friend. But then I thought, well that’s highly expected, now isn’t it? Over the past 3 years, I’ve shied away from making too many new friends and have stuck with the same few people. Back in January, a blogger named Kirsten Corleone added me to Plurk, but either she wasn’t using it much, or I wasn’t paying attention, because I didn’t really notice her until last month. But let me tell you something – I’m glad I did because she has become one of my favorite people in SL, and I knew she was the one that I should do the meme with.

Style - Meet My Friend

I’m deviating away from the meme slightly because while I did ask her questions, I’ve always found that you get to know a person better when you’re just talking. And oh, did we talk last night! But most of what we talked about needs to stay off the record because it was just us getting to know each other more. I’m sure you all understand. 😉

What I discovered about Kirsten is that she’s awesomely sweet. She’s a lover of pink. She has more jewelry than you can shake a stick at and is now my new go-to person for when I need to find just the right accessory for an outfit. Although she’s been in Second Life for many years, she still loves it and we both still make noob mistakes all of the time. She’s deeply dedicated to her partner in a way that makes you think, “Awww!” and not “Ughhh.”

The best thing that I discovered about Kirsten is that she’s someone I feel really comfortable around, and as most people know, that’s not something that happens a lot for me. I’m very glad Plurk allowed me to meet her, and I’m very happy that this meme allowed me to know her better.

Double Friends

Thanks for doing this with me, Kirsten!

You can see Kirsten’s love for fashion and jewelry on her blog, Kirstentacular!

I’m no beauty queen, I’m just beautiful me.

Two great events are going on right now – Zodiac and The Arcade! I swear, if you think there’s nothing to shop for this month, you’re living under a rock because there are so many great items out there on the grid right now, I wonder if the designers have slept in months!

Style - I'm no beauty queen, I'm just beautiful me.

From Zodiac, DCNY has this great Twin Rose tank and skirt set! I’m wearing it in pink, of course! And Adorkable has a nice little pack of Smart poses for you, too!

Now I’ll admit to not being much of a Glam Affair fan in the past, but oh my GOSH, the Lulu skins from The Arcade just stole my heart!! I couldn’t rest until I got them all! [Well, until my husband got them all for me. I’m really crashy right now and he’s way way better at this gacha stuff than I am. Thanks, honey!] The pretty Lory hair from Wasabi Pills was also on the “must have” list, along with the fabulous Fairy Tale charm bracelet and Enchanted Rose necklace from Noodles! I’m a huge Beauty & The Beast fan and that rose in a jar is my favorite thing about the movie.

Now shoo shoo… it’s time for more shopping!

It’s a good day for singin’ a song!

I feel like I’ve been away from this blog forever! If you read my personal blog, you know why. If you don’t…well, what’s wrong with you? LOL! Kidding! Let’s get on with the good stuff! Well, and some bad stuff. But it’s mostly good stuff.

Style - It's a good day for singin a song

After many years on the grid, and many years of being my “Almost Always” posemaker, Adorkable Peapod is closing her store. SADFACE. She has been one of my favorite favorite posers for ages and although I know this is the best thing for her, I can’t help but think “What about ME!” There is a closing sale at aDORKable Poses until June 9th, so be sure to go pick up some goodies. Thanks for all the years of being the best!

Truth Hawks released some great new hair this week along with his brand new textures! The textures are truly lovely, and although I might have given him some sh!t for taking away the 2 colors I wear most, I do really like the new colors. But shhh, don’t tell him I said that. I fell in love with the Lotus hair because I’ve been doing a side braid a lot in RL lately.

The Boutique opened up for a new round and I’m loving the new Cupcake jewelry from Cae and this awesome Lotus Crown from Noodles! The cool part is that my Cupcake ring fits just fine in between my new Diversity ring set from Stellar! There are several separate rings in the set so you can move them around however you’d like. What in the world did we do before we were just able to ADD lots of stuff?? I’m not usually someone who wears a lot of jewelry, but these lovely lovely ladies may be getting me to change my mind.

Enough talking. It’s time to shop!

Keep it basic, b!tches

I’m having a case of insomnia tonight, so I thought I’d do Magenta’s Basics, B!tches meme. I almost called her Skittles, which I guess would be what most everyone else knows her as, but in case you went to her blog and were like “Skittles? It says her name is Magenta! What’s going on?!” then I wanted to save you any misunderstanding.

Um, anyway.

So Skittles wanted to know what our basics are. What do we go to first, what do we not leave the house with, etc. These are mine!

Keep it basic, b!tches

[Btw, I barely did a single bit of body editing to this pic, which makes me itchy. I did smooth out that jutting angle in my calf, though. I’m not totally crazy.]

I’m pretty simple, if that hasn’t been obvious in this blog. But when I’m not blogging, I’m even more simple and it’s not uncommon for me to stay in an outfit for days if I’m not blogging, OR switching back into a “more comfortable” outfit right after a blog post. I don’t know why. :-p

Hair: I wear Truth hair pretty much 90% of my SLife. I’m most often in his Swedish blonde, but lately I’ve been doing the Fairyfloss color. Someone asked me why recently, and the only answer I can give is that it makes me happy. My second favorite hairs come from Wasabi Pills, and I have to admit, I am really liking the new textures from Exile. But Truth hairs fit my head the best. This one is Haven and it’s the one I reach for almost immediately these days.

Skin: I flip flop between Pink Fuel and Belleza most of the time. I’ll admit that I don’t change skins too often. When I find one I like and that I feel is very ME, I’ll stick with it for a bit, although I do enjoy demoing loads of skins. Currently I’ve been in Kumi from Pink Fuel because of the mesh hands from SLink, which I wear pretty much all the time now. They have the appliers for the hands, and I’m waiting patiently for the feet appliers. Which leads me to…

Feet: I’m in Gos Boutique feet pretty much always, the flat ones. I don’t like walking around on the arched feet very much because it reminds me of Barbie dolls and it’s odd to me. It sounds funny to say, but I really like my av to be comfortable! Since it’s the easiest to match Gos feet to my skin, I’m in his feet and shoes pretty much always for now.

Eyes: I’d be hard pressed to find eyes I like as much as I love IKON eyes. Way way back in the day, I loved Miriel eyes, and Miriel made a blue color that was bright and gorgeous. I could not find anyone that could make that color again! But then along came Ikon and he made some blues that are bright and beautiful, so I’m a customer for life.

Lashes: I wear two at the same time, actually. Ryker Beck made some tattoo lashes a while back and I wear the Dramatic ones. Then on top of that, I have some super old alpha lashes from the former skin store La Sylphide. I love these lashes so much, I don’t care that they’re probably about 4 years old.

Tattoo: I’ve always had a back tattoo in SL. I’m not sure why, but I just always have. I found these back wings from HUZ for free on the marketplace and I just really like them! I think they’re very well done. I AM looking for new wings, though, so if you know of any that don’t look stupid or don’t include sleeves or writing, let me know!

Underpants: I almost always have underpants on these days because with mesh skirts, you just never know who cut the alpha so your lady garden is on display. My faves are the Pop Unders from BOOM. I rarely wear a bra and just put one on for this picture.

AO: Currently I’m using the Daydream AO from Akeyo. Ulaa bought it for me as a gift when it first came out, but if I want something a little simpler without as much movement, I switch to the Akeyo Rookie Female AO which I believe is free or $1L on marketplace.

Shape: My shape is my own. I was a perfect standard size medium but I think there’s some vanity sizing going on because I realized a couple of months ago that I fit better into a small and I hadn’t changed my numbers at all. So I just went with it and adjusted a few things to fit into a small better. I love my shape a lot, I think it really suits me. My face is tweaked pretty much weekly, and any time I get a new skin, I move things around. I’ll never never never be one of those people who thinks that changing their shape must obviously kill a kitten. I love to tweak it to see if I can make myself look a little better or to fit into something I really want to wear.

Thanks for a fun meme, Skittles!! ♥

If It Makes You Happy

Just a quickie tonight! [Oh myyy!] I know a billion people have blogged the new Vanity IKON eyes today, but ugh, they’re just so so pretty. New eyes always makes me happy, especially when they match my clothing. I hope everyone had a great weekend and you’ve hit up the events and sales!

What’s New, Pussycat?

I picked a great time to get over my cold that had me knocked out last week because there’s lots of new goodies from Collabor88 and Coldlogic!

Style - What's New, Pussycat

Kitsch is the theme for this month’s Collabor88 and the creators really had fun with the theme! There are a lot of brightly colored items in fun prints, if that’s your thing, it’s absolutely worth a look! I’m all about bright colors, so naturally I found this month’s theme wonderful!

Coldlogic released some new dresses today and oh my goodness… If you like cleavage, you will LOVE a few of the dresses!! I’m wearing the Bailey dress. It looks more modest, but it’s backless and I find that a lot more sexy than showing a ton of cleavage sometimes!

Tons more to shop for, so quit reading and go do it!
