Faded Love

So the folks at Uber have a contest for the October 50 Shades Of Grey inspired edition. I decided this was a perfect opportunity to push my boundaries a little. So I grabbed an alt and took her to Uber for some goodies (frankly, she’s usually dressed as a guy so this was just fun for a change). Here are the results!

It’s kind of rare for me to really love a picture and not nit pick the ways I could’ve made it better. So to get two I loved from one shoot is really unusual, but I did. In this first one, I loved the vulnerability…

Stay

…and this version is going to be my contest entry. I felt it better showed the gorgeous corset I’m wearing from Shai, along with the lovely bed from Sway’s.

Faded Love

This was a lot of fun, and it definitely pushed me. You still have some time to go to Uber to grab the goodies seen here, along with plenty others! Full fashion and decor credits below.

Bad Medicine

So, I intended to do this post before Halloween, but I had minor surgery on Halloween and last week was sort of a blur. Still, it seems an appropriate post when you’re post-op!

I really wanted to show off the naughty/nice nurse costumes from Blacklace. So I grabbed someone to help me out, and of course she had to be the naughty nurse! Our patient/victim is my alt. He looks pretty scared, doesn’t he? Well, can you blame him?! She’s trying to kill him.

Hey, we don’t kill the patients!

Bad Medicine

More from me soon… still a bit dazed and confused (yay pain meds!).

50 Shades Of Sexy: Better Than Chocolate

So, this is the 2nd week of 50 Shades Of Sexy, and yes I am late. I’m catching up, though! I’ll have the 3rd week up later today, and then I’ll be caught up! I’m keeping this one short and, appropriately, sweet. The them was Better Than Chocolate, which makes me think of Sarah McLachlan’s song Ice Cream. I sang that once, at karaoke, for Rad. So it seemed appropriate that a picture of him should be featured in this post! He’s definitely better than chocolate and ice cream and well, basically anything else. The heart platter with yummies is from Rassasy Foods. My picture frame is What Next. The bed – the awesome, amazing bed – is from LAQ Decor. Also, take note of my fabulous feet! These are from the new Gos Boutique line, and I will have more on this unreal series soon, including information about the BEST skin tinting hud in SL.

Better Than Chocolate

This skin is a new release from Cupcakes called Emilia. The Cupcakes sim recently reopened and it looks AMAZING. I really love this skin. It’s very soft and pretty. It also has a lot of add on options, including under eye tattoos. I’m wearing one of those in this pic. I think it adds a unique look to the skin, don’t you?

Look for my take on “Sexual Healing” later today!

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. 🙂

Looks

Well, hi there…

So… I have a blog now. Yay and stuff.

My first post is going to be short and sweet. Sort of a “testing the waters before jumping in head first.”

I love Truth hair. This is no secret to those who know me, or who have been in my store (as it’s used frequently in ads). I also love pretty much all the stores in the Truth District, so when I saw that they were having a contest, I decided to enter. I created two looks for this special occasion.

Killer Beauty - Truth District Contest Entry 2

I always say that my husband is my favorite pose maker in SL. While I’m obviously and unabashedly biased, I love his poses. Admittedly, that may be partly because I have some say in what poses he makes… 😉 I’ve wanted an excuse to use one of his Ballistic poses for a while, and I fell in love with this lingerie from Whippet & Buck during the recent sale at the Truth District, and when I added this sexy, windblown hair from Truth, finally a look was born. I am crazy about Aura’s Briar skins. I feel so sultry and slightly exotic when I wear this line. I think it’s the deliciously pouty lips and dramatic eye makeup, but whatever it is, I adore Briar. And few of my looks are complete without a pair of my Gos shoes from the Pimp Your Pumps series. Seriously one of the best shoe bargains in SL, with all the color options and customization available. The necklace is from Miao, and I just felt the look wanted a big, chunky necklace.

Truth District Contest Entry 1

I really like quirky looks, and something about the amazing Gos Triumph boots with the sexy Aura skirt topped with the Celoe tank (all mesh) just struck me as uniquely, well, me. Again, I’m wearing Briar from Aura… and the hair is Kalle from Truth. I wandered into T Town to take this pic, and I have to go back to explore more soon.

So… there you have it. My first blog post. Credits down yonder.
