Champagne

I’ve been hooked on this song by Lindsay Ell since I first heard it probably six weeks ago. I’ve had it on my Current Obsessions playlist since. I thought it was good inspiration for a pic, so here you go… me in a posh limo (courtesy of Foxcity) wearing a sexy little red dress (from Just Because) and these killer Kristen heels from Gos, which you can snag at the October round of FaMESHed before it closes. I’m wearing LAQ’s Athena head in this post, which I will also wear in my next post with a close up. This head is gorgeous and if you’re looking for a less “soft” or “cute” look, I definitely would check this one out. I personally like softer/cute so I tweaked my shape and I’m using one of LAQ’s eyebrow appliers, instead of the very strong (and gorgeous) default brows on the skin for this head. But this head has such a great jaw and nose, and I really love it.

You make me feel like Jessica Biel

I’ve been dealing with mental health struggles lately. I had hoped there might be a medical cause, in terms of vitamin deficiencies or a thyroid imbalance (which I’ve had a lot of this year), but all my labs were normal, so I’ll be following up with my psychiatrist soon. It’s been a hella crazy year for us in RL, so I’m kind of thinking some of that is catching up to me. But I believe very strongly in discussing mental health challenges, so as to help with the stigma they still carry, so I thought I’d share my struggles here.

I got the boy…

The two pics in this post were inspired by Jana Kramer’s song “I Got The Boy.” I have had the idea for this post literally since the first time I heard this song… and it came out in 2015, so it’s been a long time in the making. You can read the lyrics (and I’ll add the video below, which may not work depending on where you live due to streaming rights). But the gist of it is, a woman sees her first love’s wedding pic in the paper… and she gets very nostalgic.

I decided to use my malt and one of my alts to do this. My malt is in the same skin/body/head for both shots, but with the help of some different hair and a beard, he’s “grown up” a bit in the wedding pic.

I got the boy (which for some reason I did with my alt, so really “I” got the man lol).

I got the boy

She got the man.

In this look, I am wearing Pink Fuel’s gorgeous LeLutka applier for Lookbook. I also have on one of Izzie’s Natural Glosses for Lookbook and my eyes are LeLutka appliers, also a Lookbook release, from Avi Glam. Izzie’s and Avi Glam also included Omega and Catwa appliers. You can grab the free HUD to shop from on Marketplace or you can pick one up in world at Lookbook HQ. Lookbook HUDs update on the 27th of every month.

She got the man

The song that inspired it all.

Heaven

I’ve been obsessed with the Julia Michaels song Heaven for the past month or so. It’s dreamy and sexy… and I haven’t been able to get it out of my head! So I decided to do a blog post inspired by the chorus lyrics:

No need to imagine
‘Cause I know it’s true
They say “all good boys go to heaven”
But bad boys bring heaven to you

I decided to give my malt a complete makeover… I will be featuring his look in a future post, so stay tuned for that. Then I found a sexy pose at Purple Poses, rezzed a Bueno skybox that was all white (made me think of the whole “heaven” part).

I decided to do a look that combined a bit of innocence with edginess, and I achieved that using LAQ’s Poppy head, which is utterly adorable with leather pants by Gos and a sexy denim and lace top from Just Because!

Bad boys bring heaven to you

I also wanted to do a pic alone, to better show off the leather pants and sexy top, and my cute Sabina sandals from Ingenue, which are currently at Collabor88.

And, check out LAQ’s new glam lashes. Plus, I wanted to show off my Spring eyeshadow appliers from Izzie’s. These are part of Lookbook, a new HUD based shopping event, dedicated to cosmetics/eyes/skins. You can get the HUD for free on Marketplace and shop from the comfort of your own home! I’m wearing Cae’s Devotion collar, which you can get at ROMP.

More soon… including credits for my malt!

Chinese and Chill

Everyone loves the whole “Netflix and Chill” idea but I was inspired to do a Chinese and Chill shoot when I saw the adorable take out gacha set from Lost Junction that is available at Gacha Garden through February 28th! Not only is this set super cute as decor, but each item also dispenses wearable food. My alt Lorelai is wearing one of the donuts from the Seeds of Inspiration gift of donuts that you get with every 20 pulls of the machine.

I’m wearing the Prove lingerie from Neve, which has both sheer and modest versions (I went for the modest so I didn’t have to make the Flickr rating PG). My alt is wearing le fil casse’s Entrapment bodysuit in Rose Gold. This color is a gift you can grab at Linden Lab’s Shop Your Heart Out event through February 26th!

The gorgeous bedroom set we’re sitting in front of is from Cheeky Pea and can be found at the current round of faMESHed. This is the Pascale set and I love the dreamy, pastel watercolor effect this set has. It still feels wintry but with the hope of spring to come. It’s romantic and seemed perfect for this little set up.

Chinese & Chill

I’m wearing Pink Fuel’s gorgeous, limited edition skin tone version of the popular Adeline applier. This tone is called Fawn and I really love it. These can be found at Collabor88 during the current round (through March 5th). My necklace is another Gacha Garden item, from Cae. This is the SOI gift you get for every 20 pulls, which also includes earrings (not seen here).

I’m just chewing gum

Recently, I happened upon a new-to-me artist named Nina Nesbitt and her song Chewing Gum. One of the lines is “cuz I’m a made-up mess in a backless dress” and well, I was already wearing this sexy backless dress from Neve, which you can grab at Uber through September 23rd on and it just seemed like kismet. I styled the rest of the look around the sexy, peppy song. My hair is a recent Mainstore release from Truth called Lady, and it includes multiple styling options, which you can see here. The killer red heels I have on are from Ingenue’s Cosette gacha at The Arcade, and this is just one of 16 colors to collect!

I'm a made-up mess in a backless dress

I am also wearing a new skin applier by [theSkinnery] for Catwa heads. Karen is available at Ultra through October 8th. I really like this skin. I love the messy brows and the soft sheen it has. There are also really cute crinkles around the eyes, which make me happy. While I can appreciate the absolute flawlessness of some of the skin appliers you find in SL, I also really love seeing the realism offered by creators like Umazuma Metaluna who owns [theSkinnery]. My gorgeous, bold jewelry is Cae’s Anika set which is available at FaMESHed through September 27th.

Festival!

With all the hype in the RL beauty world about “festival looks” I couldn’t resist doing on for SL. Also, it was the 20th anniversary of Lilith Fair, which I went to in 1997. My SL festival look is far more modern although there are some things that never go out of style (at least in my book), like strappy, flat sandals and long, flowing skirts. My skirt and top are both from Decoy and you can grab them at Collabor88. My sandals are by fri.day. They were at Summerfest, which has ended but should be in the Mainstore soon. My hair is Exile.

Blues Festival

I went to Lilith Fair with my then boyfriend, who wasn’t particularly memorable (or well, okay he was very memorable, but not for good reasons) but he did buy me tickets when I said I wanted them, so I have to give him credit for that. It was awesome. It was in Camden, NJ (which is not awesome, trust me) and we had seats on the lawn… which meant sitting on blankets. I won’t talk about the ways in which said guy embarrassed me that day (or others), but rather will focus on the epic entertainment spectacle I got to be a part of on that steamy Sunday afternoon/night.

We got rained on for awhile, but no one cared because we were having too much fun. Tracy Chapman was one of the performers that night, and although I sort of liked her, I was probably least looking forward to her performance… and she stole the damn show. No one was sitting during her set. She was unreal. Fiona Apple opened the mainstage and she was so newly popular at the time, and one of my favorites (Tidal is still an all time favorite of mine) and she was so natural and funny and I remember being in awe of her ease. She was about to officially open the show (there had been side stages all afternoon, one of which included Susanna Hoffs and how do you not LOVE hearing Eternal Flame performed live?) with all these major stars and she was just a teenager and it was pretty awesome.

So, in honor of this I decided to be bold and do some crazy lips… these dark blue lips are from [TheSkinnery], and are a group gift that work great with the new Alix skin released for LeLutka at Shiny Shabby. [TheSkinnery] recently updated their body appliers and the new ones are gorgeous (in the mainstore)… plus they’ve added three new skin tones. Here I am wearing the peach tone. I was also wearing one of the new tones in my last post.

Goodbye Blithe

You may have heard the sad news that Blithe has closed. I visited last night to take on final pic. I love printed canvas sneakers, and these floral printed Ulla sneakers from Ingenue won me over as soon as I saw them. They remind me of the Keds I loved so much as a teen. My jean shorts are a recent Mainstore release from Just Because. More stores have been doing Mainstore releases lately, and I have to say I’m finding it refreshing! I love events, but I miss the days of discovering things at a Mainstore, too. Speaking of Mainstore releases, my hair from Exile is another recent one! My cute, strappy tank is from Neve and you can find it at the current round of The Liaison Collaborative.

Goodbye old friend

Last month [TheSkinnery] released a new Catwa applier called Lily. I loved it immediately, but it took me ages to get my shape tweaked just right for it. I’m finally thrilled with it, and of course that meant it was picture time! I’m also wearing Catwa eye appliers from [TheSkinnery] which are available at Rewind’s 1980s Roller Rink round. In addition to the Catwa appliers, there are also mesh eyes for those that prefer them.

Sunshine in her eyes

I will truly miss Blithe. Some of my most favorite pics were taken on one of the sims of Blithe, and I am really grateful to Harlow and Jess for their hard work on it.

PS. Did you notice my hair is kinda reddish again?
