Peace is serene like an ocean

In front of Del May Store, Terravia Island

Hey guys! I’m having somewhat of a peaceful day today. My friend Andee and I went shopping at Amacci and M.O.C.K Cosmetics, then we met up with Jimmy at DK Designs and chatted for a bit. After we all parted ways, I decided to go to Del May to look at some poses, and I was inspired 🙂

I was going to use this dress for another post…I still might but this was a good fit for right now. The dress that I’m wearing is from Autres,which can be found now at SL Fashion Week. I like how you walk down a runway and everything can be found backstage, so to speak. The rest of the items can be found in the credits…until next time!

Week 2. Better than chocolate

betterthanchocolate_008

What’s better than chocolate? Me of course…

Hello! I know, I am several weeks behind the 50 Weeks of Sexy challenge. But I wanted to come up with fun ways to represent the themes that the challenge presents to us. The bloggers of the challenge had the opportunity to go to The Library last night to talk about themselves and their blog. I thought abut going, but then I felt bad because I only had one blog post up. Morgana and Shiloh went into more details on their blogs. I hope everyone had fun there 🙂 Anyways, back to today’s theme…

betterthanchocolate_003

This is from The Sugar Garden – called “Gift Wrapping Lingerie”. I saw the lingerie on flickr, and thought it would be cute to get, especially because it had the Lolas appliers. I was disappointed though, because the appliers seemed to only come in a fatpack, and I couldn’t find them anywhere else, even after doing an area search. I really don’t like the appliers sold separately, especially when they cost almost as much as the outfit itself (at some stores, not this store). So if anyone can find the black appliers, let me know please? 🙂

I felt that this look needed a bit…more umph, so I added stockings, gloves, and garters from one of my Blacklace lingeries to this number. Throw on a pair of sexy stilettos and shake out your hair a bit, and this completes the look! Now…on to the feast that’s behind me…

I must say – this is the first time that I staged a scene to take a shot. Like, literally asked friends to see if they had props (i.e. chocolate) to help me out a bit. I used the studio skybox from A:S:S that was just on sale for 10L. For the first time ever I was able to use my entire dining room set from ARIA ,and it’s really a nice set. As for the food…except for what I got for 10L at LISP Bazaar, everything was old stuff. At one point I crashed and when I came back, anything that was no copy was gone. Good thing I was able to take the items from another part of the package (just say NO to no copy items…unless it’s gatcha). And when I was done, I noticed that half the skybox looked like it was inside a tree…sure enough someone had rezzed a huge cave that swallowed up my skybox. I was 1000m in the sky too…

Well enough rambling (way too many “I” statements!) – here is one more glimpse of me gift wrapped…for whom is the question…

Alright – I’m outtie! Have fun and stay sexy ^^

color-block_004Ricielli sim, near the water

Hey guys -welcome back! I think I am getting the hang of blogging a bit more frequently.  Today I wanted to do something different and experiment with color blocking. What is color blocking, you ask?

We all remember the color wheel, right? We have our primary colors – red, yellow, and blue. Next comes the secondary colors – orange (mix of red and yellow), green (mix of yellow and blue), and purple (mix of blue and red). So image that these colors are on a wheel, with the secondary colors between the 2 primaries that make them up. So if we take yellow and purple, they are complementary to each other, and would make a high contrast look.

color-block_010

Purple and yellow right? Surprisingly, I didn’t have too many purple items that would be good for the look that I wanted to achieve. And I hardly have any yellow items in my inventory…yikes! I did like how the pink trench coat from Ricielli looked, so I decided to start from there. I took one of my favorite pairs of jeans (from Zaara) and tinted it purple, and added a splash of yellow color by using an old dress from Paradisis as my top under my coat. To add more yellow, I used yellow accessories that I think worked out nicely. Next time I will make sure to use more of the complementary color in my outfit…I think this would had totally rocked if I had like a long yellow sleeveless shirt with maybe a cropped jacket in a third color.

Until next time, guys!

A Belated Valentine’s Greeting

vday_003Happy Valentine’s Day!

Hey guys! I just wanted to wish you all a happy belated Valentine’s ^^ I was planning on showing a nice sexy number to celebrate, but just wasn’t in the mood :p I did manage to pick up a few gifts and sales along the way.

Drift is having a sale right now – 99L on all purple, pink, and red items. Hence, the nice new shirt that I am wearing now 🙂 Also, Gos Boutique has a lovely pair of shoes as a group gift now at the store.

Want more sales and gifts? Then check out this pinterest link here.

I tried to get Snowflake in the photo, but he’s nowhere to be found. I swear ever since I moved, you can never find this cat anymore. At the old house, he would always be up under me. Figures…

Hypershine Lipcolor – M.O.C.K. cosmetics

Hey guys! It’s been a while since I did a makeup post, so let me show you some of what’s new at M.O.C.K. cosmetics 🙂 Mockie came out with Hypershine Lipcolor in 10 colors, plus one for the group (not shown here).

Since the Lyala skin from Al Vulo that I have on has both pink eyeshadow and lips, I used Mockie’s Mythic Neutraliser to tone down the color. I am not sure whether this is sold in the store, because this was one (of MANY) gifts she gave to the store group. This is seen in the first photo. Next to it is the Hypershine lip color in Chestnut. The rest is as follows:



02 – Contessa Pink
03 – FreeSpeech Red
04 – Mahogany
05 – Nude New York
06 – Sangria
07 – Sea Pink
08 – Whiskey Sour
09 – Old Rose
10 – Peachy Pink

The eyeshadow is also from M.O.C.K. cosmetics. Unfortunately I forget what the exact color is, but I know it is from the Miss Vanity line (comes with the tattooed lashes as well). These lipcolors are semi-transparent, meaning the color of your lips can make the lipcolor look slightly different in the shade compared to another person. This way you can still be unique, but look fabulous just the same.

A Walk in the Park

Relaxing in the park at MAYFAIR

Hey guys! I just finished shopping at the coldLogic sale (last day for 50% off the entire store!), and I decided to take a stroll on the MAYFAIR sim. I managed not to visit any clothing stores (for now anyway :P), but I do like to shop mainly when I come here.

After snowstorm Nemo  had me shoveling snow for over an hour yesterday (why did they have to name it after the cute fish in Finding Nemo, anyway?), it’s nice to be able to dress fashionably warm on Second Life…with NO SNOW!

The chea leggings & yapple shirt from coldLogic, along with the Stagioni boots from Maitreya makes me feel snuggly warm inside. I really like how coldLogic makes realistic textures, both the shirt and leggings makes me want to run my hands along the material. I guess that’s why the store has never been empty since the sale started ^^

As for jewelry, I just went with neutral tones that would complement my current outfit. Some people will just take a jewelry set and wear everything that’s there, which is okay. But for instance, if I would had done that with my Donna Flora ring, the result would had been a casual outfit with over-the-top jewelry. Don’t get me wrong…I love my statement jewelry….but that’s too much of a statement 🙂

Okay – that’s all from me for now…stay warm guys!

Just Me

Hey guys…I have been feeling pretty bleh lately. The cold weather in real life  has really affected my mood…even made me want to dress in mufti-layered clothing and lounge around Second Life.

feel_001

My shades look kinda funky in that photo…didn’t notice it until much later. Ah well 😛 I decided to do a bit of shopping around to see what’s new and exciting.

Elikatira is having a massive hair sale now – all hairs will be discontinued after the sale ends on the 23rd. So of course I had to get some new hair, as well as more colors for some of the ones that I already had before. Another store that is having a sale is Kyoot – sadly, Kyoot will be closing its doors very soon (I heard the sale will end at the beginning of February), so run on down! Khitt and I were talking about how long the store has been around – I have things from 2010, and I think she has even older stuff. Okay – all of the closing has me down again..let’s talk about newer stuff.

Ikon has a new VIP group gift for the month of February. Even though I tend to wear mine from Exodi, I am always looking to find my next new favorite pair of eyes. Also, Al Vulo has a new skin out at TDR Fusion. I wanted to try the Honey tone, but they didn’t have demos there or even at their main store (yes, I went to look haha). So I got my usual sunkissed tone.

Until next time guys…which will probably be soon! ^^
