Iren released a new skin! Mona is absolutely gorgeous, and now even has new add ons so you can wear tattoo layers to change your nose or mouth to the noses and mouths of other Iren skins. This is a new trend in skin creation I find really intriguing. It means you can really customize your look. I’m just wearing the basic Mona skin with eyeliner and a lip layer for these pics, but definitely check out Iren’s awesome offerings.
In addition to the add-ons you can buy to customize Mona for your look, there’s also an option that includes mesh hands! I’ve resisted mesh hands because I change skins so often and tinting them is just a pain, even with the easier of the huds. I’ve also found most mesh hands just don’t look totally seamless, no matter how elegant or well done they might be… but the Mona hands are virtually seamless and already tinted to perfectly match whichever tone you buy! My hair for today (okay, for Day 8) is Jade from Truth in my usual blood red shade. This adorable cropped top is a “coming soon” item from Insatiable Fashions. I love crops that show off the belly button. They feel cute, flirty and sexy… and speaking of bellies, doesn’t the Mona skin have a crazy cute belly?
Finally, I just had to show off my recently acquired bed from LAQ Decor. The thing that blows me away about this bed is how many tint and fabric options you get. You can go from shabby chic to nautical elegance to country charm all with just a few minutes of customizing. I’m obsessed with purple recently, so I made my bed fit with that obsession. Oh, and in addition to being obsessed with purple, I’m always obsessed with anything that has stars! So, when my dear friend Lyssa Sapeur, owner of Greymoon, mentioned she was making jeans with patterns, I requested stars! The result is seen in the below pic, and I just love these jeans so much. Also, you see those adorable frosted mirrors in the background? They are the hunt gift from [WM] for the Cold Winter Nights hunt. Such a cute piece of decor, and definitely worth the hunt to find!
My house is the recent Wynter release from Funky Junk. More posts with this house are soon to come, but this is the first time I’ve ever re-textured a house, and I’m pretty excited about it. Usually I just use a house as-is… but my BFF Rosa is a re-texturing addict. She always re-textures her houses. I’ve always been intimidated by the idea. Wynter is, not surprisingly, designed as a winter cottage… and as Rosa walked through it, she mentioned it had a lot of white. If I were still decorated for Christmas, I think I’d love that because it would be a great contrast to the rich colors of Christmas decor. But since it’s January, and Rosa tempted me with the idea of re-texturing… I decided to go for it. For most people, re-texturing prims is like… no big deal. But I’ve come a long way from the woman who had her husband log in to adjust her prims for her first six months of SL!
Anyway, my bedroom is currently “papered” in a lilac Victorian print, but I’m not 100% sure I’m keeping that. Regardless, I love this house so much. It’s one of the biggest homes I’ve had for just “me” but it makes me happy to walk through it. If you’re looking for a cozy, but roomy, winter home, definitely check it out!
