Just Darling

Just Because released this utterly gorgeous dress for The Liaison Collaborative. I’m not even biased because it’s called Jessica (my RL name lol), I swear! It’s just really stunning and the sparkles are incredible. I had a hard time picking a color, but ultimately went with the Rose Gold for this post. I paired it with Cae’s new Darling necklace, earrings and bracelet set you can grab at FaMESHed. My hair is Christine from Doe and you can grab it at Memento Mori. I love this style because it’s so versatile. It’s cute, but with the detailed braids and waves in the ponytail, it also manages to be very elegant. I’m also wearing the Love Potion particle hearts that Cole’s Corner has out at The Coven! I’m wearing “pure” but they come in three different colors, including black for those of you who may not be feeling very Valentine’s-y or pure. 😉

Spring Romance

I had to get the new(ish) applier Izzie’s released for the LeLutka Simone bento head. It’s soft and pretty and the price tag of $L599 is amazing, especially for what Izzie gives you. You get six each of eye makeup and lipstick options, plus freckles, moles or freckles & moles, and a wide range of eyebrow colors. I also wanted to show you one of the new Pink Fuel Fresh Lip Tints. These are so awesome. Each color has 5 options. One is full coverage, then there’s 75%, 50% and 25% opacity versions. Additionally you can tweak any of these with the LeLutka hud to get it even more custom (which I did in the pic below… I started at 50% and lowered it a bit). The fifth option is the dolly version, which is always adorable. My eyes are another pair of Buzzeri’s Okina eyes from The Epiphany. I’ve been a bit obsessed with this line! The Epiphany closes on the 15th, so be sure you scurry over to grab anything else you might want last minute!

I took both of these pics at the beautiful new Vintage Romance Bed & Breakfast sim. This sim is open to the public, but it does have rental homes. Please be courteous while exploring.

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Memento Mori & Salem

Memento Mori closed unexpectedly early. This happened because of people taking advantage of its location to cam to the Epiphany sim so they could shop before the event was open. This is a huge problem in an event like The Epiphany because it’s a 100% gacha event and people shopping that way early can sell stuff before the event is even open. It’s really unfair to designers. Also, since there are very specific scripts involved in the event, a machine might look setup and not actually be done. So basically, to sum it up, this is why we can’t have nice things.

But fear not! Memento Mori is going to reopen after The Epiphany opens! You’ll be able to return to the event to shop. Some designers may have opted to put their items out in their Mainstores, so if there was something you had your eye on, check there, too. So stay tuned for the return of this awesome event! Here’s a link to the blog with all the info.

I am heading to bed in a couple of moments because we leave for a whirlwind road trip in uhm 5 hours. EEP. So no more chatter from me. Just pics, with the credits to follow!

Over the rainbow

The Pulse Fundraiser is winding down. It will close in just under 24 hours, so if you haven’t gone yet, hurry! If you’re not sure what I am talking about, this fundraiser is benefitting the families and victims of the horrific incident that took place last month at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando. There are a ton of fabulous designers participating, not to mention auction boards where you can bid on some fabulous people and/or prizes.

I wanted to do something sparkly, cheerful and dreamy. So I went to StoryBrooke Gardens and, just by chance, found this giant book. And the quote on the page… “hope springs eternal.” It just seemed perfect. I’m the odd mix of realist and idealist. I often say I’m a realistic idealist. I want to believe change is possible, that things can be different. That the world, as ugly as it can be, is also still full of so much that is beautiful and good. And when I see the SL community come together for an event like this, it’s just that much easier for me to hold on to that hope.

I’m wearing a lot of items you can find at the event. My hair is from Exile, the dress is Valentina E. The body glitter and bracelet are both Izzie’s. My shoes are Reign. The adorable star “freckles” are Vile Cult.

Over The Rainbow

In this pic, you can better see the cute star tattoos, along with the beautiful applier Glam Affair released for Uber. Although this applier was designed with Annie in mind, I am wearing it with Alice here… and I think it’s pretty adorable!

Rainbow Sprinkles

Definitely be sure to run over to the Pulse Fundraiser before it ends. It’s worth it! You get to support a great cause while buying beautiful things. Or bidding on beautiful prizes/people!

I don’t wanna grow up

Stockholm & Lima did the most adorable set for The Epiphany. It’s called “failed adulting,” and the rare is this cozy “blanket fort” skybox. I’m also featuring the bed, candy glasses, rug and table from this set. Personally, I look at this skybox and bed, and think “winning adulting,” but that’s just me. I’m still a Toys R Us kid! My outfit features Fishy Strawberry’s adorable top for Geeks ‘N Nerds 2015. When I put this top on and saw what it said, I seriously couldn’t stop giggling. Which confirmed for me that I am, in fact, a nerdy geek. Aside from “textually active,” there’s “stay weird (a message I also support fully)”, and a plain option. You can also change the suspender colors, and there are plaid, leather and argyle options.

I don't wanna grow up

My leggings are a recent release from Neve, the new store from the creators of coldLogic. My adorably geeky glasses are from Label Motion, also for Geeks ‘N Nerds, as are my pencil socks by Izzie’s and my cute pigtails from Wasabi Pills. The cute little tv you see in the corner near the unicorn bed is one of Hopscotch’s All The TV Feels, the love version, another Geeks ‘N Nerds release. Isn’t it super cute?! The chair I’m goofing around on is from Cheeky Pea and is at The Mens Dept with multiple color versions. I’m on the tartan one because I love tartan, and I really enjoyed adding tartan to argyle and houndstooth patterns.

Geeks N Nerds is now open and runs through November 1st!

The Epiphany runs through November 12th!

Cinder

Usually when people think of Cinderella, they think of the blue eyed, blonde from the Disney movie. When I began putting together a look for January’s We ❤ Role-Play, however, a very different version of Cinderella was born.

It began with the lovely dress from Evie's Closet. Now, this dress includes beautiful fairy wings, but I put on the PXL skin and Entwined hair and inspiration struck. Meet Cinder, the mysterious, dark version of Cinderella my imagination conjured up with help from these three wonderful We ❤ Role-Play releases.

Cinder dreams of love

Now, just like the Disney version of Cinderella, Cinder is overworked and dreams of love that will take her away from her evil stepsisters and wicked stepmother.

Cinder takes a break

We can only hope her dreams come true.

What fantasies can you make an SL reality with the help of creations from this month’s We ❤ Role-Play? Hurry over to find out today!

Apocalypse

Uber is almost over, but you still have until the 25th to go by and grab some apocalyptic themed goods! I have to admit, I’m not usually into the apocalyptic themed stuff, but I was pleasantly surprised to find myself drawn to this round.

This Jack’s Bugout Shelter skybox from Consignment is really awesome… you can buy the skybox and all the furniture and accessories separately, or you can buy the entire set (which is what I did). For L$850 it was too great a deal to pass up! I already had this awesome FATEplay outfit which seemed just a perfect fit to go with my boots from Deadwool. I’m pretty beaten up, so clearly I really need that first aid kit you can see on the floor. That’s from Frogstar for the new edition of Level Up.

Forlorn

Glam Affair has some really fun skins out for Uber, and this is one version. My hair is Exile and also from Uber. My body bruises are from Soedara, and I found them on Marketplace.
