The Forgotten

So, back at the beginning of this month I did some pics for a New Year’s blog. Then I got distracted. Oops. I do that sometimes. Also, can you believe January is nearly over already?

I got my husband to pose with me for a blog pic. He’s reclusive, so this was a special treat. It was actually taken on New Year’s Eve. I have to be honest… it feels like it was far longer than a month ago! My dress is from NiNight Creations. It comes in tons of color options and it’s just so pretty. The detail work on this is spectacular. Rad’s suit is from Fatewear. Behind us you see the cute decor What Next did to ring in the New Year, placed on my Laurel fireplace (also from What Next).

2013

I also grabbed my BFF Rosa for a photo shoot to celebrate the end of 2012 and the start of 2013. This photo box called, appropriately, Countdown was from the December round of My Attic and is by W. Winx. It’s seriously fun. I am not sure if it was an event exclusive, but since it doesn’t have just 2013 on it, it’s something that I know I can use again this New Year’s Eve! Rosa & I are wearing dresses from SySy’s and hair from Exile.

Let the countdown begin

Rosa’s skin is Halo, from Aeva. It’s such a soft and pretty skin, and it suits Rosa so nicely.

My Best Friend

My skin is Lana from Glance. I fell in love with the uniqueness of this skin. It wasn’t quite like any skin I’d seen in SL. I especially love the heavy lidded eyes. They are sleepy and sexy. My necklace is from Maxi Gossamer. I thought a necklace that featured a clock pendant was appropriate for a New Year’s look.

Celebrate

So, there you have it… my New Year’s blog post. It’s still January, so I think it’s in under the wire. Okay, maybe not. But these things were just too awesome to not blog.

50 Shades Of Sexy

So, the lovely Shiloh Selene issued a challenge for the year called 50 Shades Of Sexy. As a 50 Shades Of Grey hater, I was all in favor of proving that we in SL know sexy in ways that would blow the mind of that book’s author. The thing is… I’m not exactly known for doing “sexy” pics. Oh, here and there I’ve dabbled a bit, but my erm, “bits” always stay covered. I know, I know. I’m a prude by SL standards.

But I really wanted to attempt this challenge, and see… can I get through 50 rounds of being sexy my way? Well, week one had a theme of Cotton Candy. The timing was perfect, since Perfect Wardrobe’s theme right now is one related to Candy, and Sakide had out their glam dresses in fun, candy inspired colors.

Of course, we’re sort of programmed to hear “cotton candy” and think “pink, fluffy, spun sugar.” But cotton candy doesn’t have to be pink! In fact, my inner rebel was born pretty much when I was, and as a little girl I strongly resented the notion that since I was a girl I was automatically supposed to like pink. In fact, I spent years hating pink just out of spite. I’m honestly still not a huge fan, but I’ve learned pink has its place! However, part of my anti-pink rebellion meant that I never got pink cotton candy!!! I always went for the blue or, preferably (though harder to find), the pale purple. So, for my Cotton Candy pic, I went with Sakide’s vintage glam dress in lavender. I’d been seeing floorplan’s Chair De Lune piece all over Flickr and finally had to get it. I love anything with moons or stars. The cute little pallet shelf is from What Next, and it comes with the candles and books you see. My skin is the new Belleza, Ava, in medium. This skin is utterly gorgeous, and I bought 0, which is the bare one. I usually don’t get bare skins, but this is one of the prettiest I’ve seen. I tend to like at least having eyeshadow options. I did buy the lipstick fatpack so I can glam it up, but a closeup of this skin is soon to come. My shoes are the Alex heels from G Field. I love these shoes a lot, and my only gripe is I wish they didn’t have a boot fixer you can’t turn off because it can ruin poses. But I didn’t let that stop me from buying like 5 different colors, so obviously it’s not a deal breaker! The thigh high stockings are from Izzie’s, and my hair is Stay The Night, one of the newest Exile releases. It’s funny because I didn’t expect to like this hair, but when I demo’d it, it whispered seductively in my ear, Lucie… you neeeeed me.

Cotton Candy...

This is my very first pic using the LumiPro Hud, which my husband bought me as a Christmas gift. It’s really exciting because it means I can have shadows in my skybox by using the projector option. If you’re curious about LUMIPro, check out their site. If you want to participate in the 50 Shades challenge, you’ll find all the details – along with all 50 prompts – here!

PS. I usually do my credits after the post, but I’m nursing a broken foot and feeling a tad lazy, so I worked them all into the post. If I missed something or you have a question, just leave a comment or contact me in world. 🙂

Deck The Halls!

I can’t believe Christmas is finally just about here… only a few days remain! So much I want to blog still!

The Outlet is a sales event that has some great items. One of the available items is this gorgeous, fun, and quirky dress from Greymoon. I feel like I’m all dressed up as my husband’s gift in this sexy, sparkly getup! There are 3 colors at the outlet, including the reverse of what I’m wearing and a purple w/white! Each is only L$75, so check it out! I completed my look with the gorgeous new Pomona jewelry set from Cae, one of Truth’s newest hairs and my sassy red patent heels from G Field. This prop is from Hopscotch, and it’s appropriately called Sexy Christmas. It has multiple poses built into it, and it’s a lot of fun to play with.

Unwrap Me

This skin is another of the Aeva skins for the holidays. This one is Jaci. It’s dramatic and stunning, and perfect for the more formal holiday themed events you might attend!

Deck The Halls

Hopefully I will get another post done before Christmas, but if not a very Merry one to all who celebrate. ❤

Last Call! RFL Christmas Expo!

This is the last day of the RFL Christmas Expo. If you haven’t been yet, definitely try to get there! It’s such a great cause, and it’s a lovely build with tons of goodies.

This first pic features an old fashioned Christmas tree from the Expo and an adorable pose I got from the Adorkable Arcade gacha! The tree is by Hanaya, and like the trees of years gone by it features lovely lit candles. Unlike the trees of years gone by, there’s no fire danger from this one, and the tree skirt is texture change! The adorable kitty bed Winter is sleeping on is one of the items in the KittyCatS Advent Calendar, and it’s from A.D.D. Andel! My presents, aside from the Adorkable props, are all from What Next.

For Me?

The With Love From Hunt also continues, and this cute chalkboard is evolve’s gift for that hunt. The Winter Holiday Side Table is something I found from End of Daze at the RFL Expo. I thought it was crazy cute and just had to put it out! Especially if you like your Christmasy things to have a more modern, clean look, this is a must have.

Christmas with love

Next, if you feel you need a festive and fun holiday skin, Aeva has several absolutely gorgeous ones out… and best of all? They’re only L$100 each! This one is Yves, and I just thought it was stunning. I will be blogging more of these holiday skins ASAP.

Aeva Yves Holiday Skin

This is another pic featuring an Adorkable pose you can get from The Arcade gacha! I thought it was so cute, and I decided to wear this Sakide corset dress from the F R O S T event to create a cute, sexy and playful look. The hair is a relatively new release from Exile, and I loved the flowers (they are texture change, but you can wear it without them, too)!

Helper

I hope your having a wonderful holiday season!

Blogger Challenges · iheartslFeed · Raid Your Closet

Better late than never!

So my final installment of the Raid Your Closet Challenge is nearly a week late. Uhm. Oops. I have some sort of self-imposed hatred of deadlines or something, I think. Even when they are my own damn deadlines.

For this final post, I remembered to take out a pair of shoes I utterly love but for some reason, never seem to wear! The Moxie shoes from Maitreya, which break the “no sandals and socks” rule in the best (and really only acceptable) way possible! I decided to relax by the fire in my autumn porch set from What Next.

Halloween Idyll

I wore my Elena skin by Izzie’s that I love so much, but I paired it with one of the matte Dailyn lips because they are so bold. This hair from Shag is an old favorite that I’ve had over a year.

Moody Purple

These cute shorts are from G Field. I bought them months ago and this is literally the first time I’ve worn ’em. *facepalms* The top is from Cracked Mirror, and it’s cleverly named “Poe.” The future English teacher in me really loved that!

Poe

This challenge was so much fun to do again (even if I’m a week late on my final look). I might have to dust this one off again sometime down the road. Thank you to all who participated. I hope you had as much fun with it as I did!

Three for the price of One…

So, I am a bit behind. As a result, you get a special Three for the price of One blog post from me! First on the agenda, Week Four of Raid Your Closet.

I love autumn clothes. I love layers and tights and jackets. I also love the “smart, but sexy” look, which is what I was going for with this week’s RYCC. I paired this cute skirt from Blueberry with a blazer by House of Fox that I grabbed from the last round of Collabor88. I added some fuzzy tights from JANE, these adorable not-quite-boots shoes from G Field, a sketchbook from Elymode and my Gos Intuition glasses and considered myself good to go. Oh, and the super sexy but softly feminine t-shirt under my blazer is from Sleeping Koala. Anyone who thinks textured clothes are a thing of the past needs one of these t-shirts. The detail work is incredible and they are perfect for layering!

Book Smart

Next up… The Black Market! I loved this outfit from Sakide for The Black Market. It’s really cute, sexy and girly. I paired it with a recent shoe release from Severed Garden. These Nana pumps have a hud and there are so many color combinations. They are some crazy high heels, but that is offset by how freakin’ cute they are! The sheer tights are a new release from Izzie’s. I was absolutely thrilled with this release because I’ve been dying for some “pantyhose” type tights.

Feigned Innocence

The stunning skin is the newly released Jaci from Aeva. Though the Bare and Belle Amie versions have been out for a few weeks, Amesha recently released the full makeup line. This soft, delicate and perfectly autumnal makeup is called Chocolat. My jewelry set is Enchanted from Cae, and it’s so pretty. It’s texture change with multiple metal options. For this look I used the rose gold metal.

Aeva Jaci 01 - Chocolat

Next, a bit of homestyle. I used my Anastasia Autumn skybox again for this pic. The chair is from Mudhoney for The Outlet and comes in several color options. I used the teal because I liked the unexpected splash of color. The leather sofa is from WM, also for The Outlet. It’s texture change, and includes an option you can tint. The bookcase and pile of books is by FD Decor for The Black Market. Like the sofa & chair, this is also mesh. I was exhausted from standing in those heels, so I plopped on the Emma chair to relax.

Autumn Living Room

That’s all from me for now. Soon I’ll have more from Cinema!

Cinematic Dress Up

I love Halloween. It’s just so much fun to dress up, and have fun. If you also love Halloween, you definitely need to check out the Cinema event. There are a ton of great costume ideas, along with every day or RPing ideas to be found. Here are some of my favorites… so far!

When I saw the poses Hopscotch was going to release for this event, I was in geek heaven. Doctor Who and Star Trek inspired heaven… I’ll have something from the Doctor Who themed releases soon, but for my first look, I went for Star Trek. I paired Hopscotch’s pose with the adorable dress from E! Eclectic Apparel, inspired by the outfits from The Original Series. I picked blue because if I were in Starfleet, I’d definitely be a science officer! I rented a MultiScene skybox for an hour, and this is the Visio scene with one of the planet surrounds. I decided to turn on the hot tub, because let’s face it, Kirk would love that. Besides, the steam and bubbles seemed to add drama.

Unseen Enemy

For my second look, I am wearing Pididdle’s Cinema offering, called Undead Perfection. There is a story that goes with this ensemble, and I just loved the creativity and effort that went into this. If you’d like to read the story, click here. I copied it from the notecard that was included with the outfit. This outfit contains nails, the face mask, the bodysuit and even the awesome tattoos. This was also taken in a MultiScene skybox, and this scene is called Swamp. The skin is the Matrioska offering for October’s MySecond Box.

Undead

My last look is more every day, but still dramatic. This Willow hair from Alice Project for Cinema is amazing. For me, it conjured up a windswept beach… and possibly a broken heart, or date night that ended in a way that wasn’t planned. This look was inspired by a character in a Nora Roberts series I really enjoy. The character’s name is Mia, and she has flame red hair and grey eyes. She’s also, it just so happens, a very powerful (but “good”) witch. I paired this hair with the elegantly dramatic tiered dress that Valentina E. Couture has for one of their Cinema items, and I wandered to Fire Beach to shoot these pics.

Witchy Woman

I’m also wearing the newest skin release from Izzie’s. Fuyu is just stunning. I am so in love with this skin. Here’s a better look. You can also see the dainty and delicate necklace I snagged from the Collisions booth at Cinema.

Night Breeze

I’ll have more from Cinema soon… stay tuned.
