The Magic of Mesh <333

I was nervous about mesh, I’ll be honest.  Tonight with the newest release from Janie Marlow, I’ve fallen in love with mesh.  How incredible is it that we won’t have sculpts going through our little avi bodies anymore! I’m totally siked!

In order to see mesh items properly you need to be on the latest LL released Beta viewer.  Viewer 3!  Don’t worry, it isn’t so bad! I promise you won’t melt or anything by logging on an LL viewer.  You can read more about mesh on the Second Life Blog http://community.secondlife.com/t5/Inworld/Mesh-goes-gridwide-Create-sell-buy-amp-enjoy-all-new-things-in/ba-p/1055107

50L Friday @ BC & TOSL @ Blacklace

I’m not one for self promotion very often but after I completed these shoes for an outfit I created for my brand, Baby Couture, I just had to style them with the TOSL item available this week at Blacklace.

The shoes are available today only for just 50L at Baby Couture and the Blacklace set will be available for this week at the cost of 199L

The panties that come with the set make for a perfect evening look when the lights go down and you’re cuddled up with that special someone.  I’ve paired the evening look with some hot pink Saffron Pumps from Lelutka.  These shoes really are classic and if you go to the store you’ll see they come in a wide array of colors both bold and soft colors.

ADDICTed to Bloom Dolls 6/12/2011

I was part of the lag that hit Surf Co. when the lovely Emma Gilmour released these adorable big headed dolls that we’ve come to love called Bloom Dolls.  I immediately purchased the one I thought was best fitting to me before dragging my other two blog partners over to get one as well for a future joint post.

Another wonderful person in my life, Kianna Noel, design of ADDICT has released these really cute dresses in a variety of colors called Luna.  I wanted to share the dress with you but I couldn’t pull it off on *me* so I thought it’d be a good time to bring out my Bloom Doll and pretty her up.  Here are the results.

Comfort 6/10/2011

Typically we post clothing and skins here but today I’m going to break the unwritten rules.  I bought this pose from Glitterati some time ago but hadn’t gotten to use it until last night.  This is probably my favorite pose that I have in my inventory.  It is comfortable and looks so natural.

Practicing..

I mostly wanted to post this photo to share the pose but also the image.  When I started blogging it was because I take tons of photos and I never do anything with them more than upload them to Flickr.  Blogging was a way to “show off” some of what I do from shopping for clothing and hair to poses and the obvious, taking photos.

Frilly Vest 5/31/2011

We apologize for the delay in updates the past 10 days or so, we were both on a bit of a hiatus while I was on RL vacation and mom was building a new house.

Grixdale is becoming a frequently blogged shop from me and I must say I’m very thankful to be part of the blogger group of the store.  I really do love most of what comes out in the store and although this look came together by off chance with some of the new releases from that shop I really wanted to show off my new shoes!

I can’t say that I’m guilty of going through all the shoe fair sims or that I even purchased more than a handful of items but I absolutely love the pair of shoes I purchased from Pixel Mode.  The proceeds of this shoe went to the charity www.soles4souls.org which “collects new shoes to give relief to the victims of abject suffering and collects used shoes to support micro-business efforts to eradicate poverty”.

Shangri La Style 5-29-2011

The shoes went as a good accessory to my bit of a quirky look today.  I put on a dress from Grixdale and decided it matched well and as I was thinking of a location for the photo I remembered how I always loved the Malt sim owned by designer Khea Karas.  I ventured over to the sim and decided to peek in to the shop to see if I could possibly throw anything over the thin straps of this dress since I always was a fan of Khea’s outerwear.  That’s when the frilly vest came into play which actually became my favorite part of this outfit second to the shoes.

The last thing I wanted to rave about is how adorable this skin is.  I like a very soft and natural skin and I’m so picky about them.  The only ones I’ve ever truly loved were from Exodi and Dutch Touch.  They are the only skins I wore for more than a few days but this Grixdale skin has been on me since it was sent to the blogger group.  Also it was extremely easy to tint the skin to match… truth be told I didn’t have to alter one of the preset skintones on the shoe HUD which makes these shoes even better for me!  This is the darkest tone which was sent.  I’m typically a bit more tan than this and I’m starting to think maybe that is what was making tinting sculpted feet such an impossible task but for now this is the skin I’m in.

I grabbed a closeup of my ensemble as well to show you the face of the skin and the adorable jewelry which I received from the Virtual Fashion Feed Blogger Group that I recently was accepted to be a part of.

TDR Blue Mashup 5/15/2011

I meant to get this blog up earlier but I’m kind of an airhead and locked myself out of my Flickr.  I cannot remember the password for anything today so I’m just going to upload it inside of WordPress to share with you all.

The skin and earrings were from TDR blue and the hair is from Pia from Truth.  The top is from Grixdale and is a re-release and the jeans were part of an outfit by Sandie Saenz that I randomly found while searching Marketplace.  The best part is that the entire outfit, jewelry included was just 199L.

Hair & Lashes Oh My 4/23/2011

I meant to ramble on about these gorgeous eyelashes in my last post, but I thought I would save it for another post.  I really wanted to feature the skin in that post.  Now ere we are in the next post so let me just tell you these lashes are really great!  They look amazing on and are incredible to fit.  The creator really has gone the extra step to make these the absolute best lashes that I own.  They are gorgeous and the scripting allows you to obtain a perfectly flawless fit (unlike what is shown in the photos).  I’m still working on getting the perfect fit for me but I wanted to share them with you now because I just couldn’t hold back anymore.  I found these lashes on the style card of the shape I purchased from Juicy.  They are made by Framboise Werribee and are a staple to my avatar now.

Shangri La Style 4-23-2011 Hair

Today’s Truth hair release was ever so convenient since taking the eyelash photos would require a closeup shot.  I grabbed this hair called Hazel from the new release and I’m really glad that I did.  It frames my avatars face so elegantly and the curls are just so soft, I really love the way this hair looks.  It’s a pretty versatile style as well so you can dress it up or down to create an elegant look for an evening out or to dress up some jeans and a tank like I’ve chosen to do.

LAQ Linnea – Skin Review

LAQ Linnea ALL

Hello everyone! I have never done this before so please be nice to me… this is my first skin review and I have a lot of good to say about this one.  I’ve always been a fan of LAQ skins but I have not been wearing them for quite some time because I did not like how the lips looked so glossy and huge on me.  I recently got bored of my avatar so I went for a total overhaul and bought a new skin, new eyes and some new hairs and I’m even thinking about changing the color of my hair but for now it’s still brown.

Grixdale LOTD 4/8/2011

Shangri La Style 4-8-2010

This lovely outfit made by Tyr is a new release at a rebranded shop called Grixdale.  You should definately head over and check out the shop, even better right now everything is on sale 50% off from April 7-14!  There are many gorgeous designs to check out and the sale is for a limited time only so don’t walk, run!   I wanted to show you one of their designs and keep the rest very simple so I’ve paired the dress with shoes from Maitreya released last year.  Ignore the botchup of a job to hide the invisprims, they unfortunately do not have the option to wear a 2.0 alpha since this was not yet integrated into the SL viewer.  Also as most of you are aware it’s pose fair time and the pose I’m using is from AVANT (shameless self promotion, check out my booth at pose fair, please)!

Walk on the Sand 3/27/2011

Shangri La Style 3-27-2010

I have been wanting to blog this little dress for awhile but was having issues with styling and I slipped it on yesterday morning and the rest of what I already had on just worked.  I received a delivery of some Just A Pose goodies and it contained a new pose pack that was perfect for presenting the look so here it is!  This cute little dress was an immediate purchase after NSD store owner Naith Smit posted a photo on plurk.  The shoes are one of my go to pairs and all time favorites.  If you do not own the fatpack of these shoes head to Maitreya now, find the ChiChi pumps and get them all, you won’t regret it.  I like the simplicity of this look… the no fuss appearance which is perfect for these hot summer days approaching.  I don’t know about you but in the summer I don’t spend much fuss putting together elaborate accessory detailing, it’s just too hot for me to bother.  I typically toss on some shorts or a summer dress, some sandals or flip flops, my shades and I’m out the door to enjoy the day.
