Take a moment for yourself …

Sometimes a girl needs to just get out and get some fresh air, take a little time for herself.  Today I am back at Kalopsia and I found a little place that I could hunker down and take a pic.  I am sporting all sorts of new and fun things.  Blueberry had a brand new release! I am sporting the Jolene set.  Both the top and jeans are sold separately so you have the perfect opportunity to mix and match your colors.  Or if you are a lover of all you can purchase the fatpack and wear all the colors you want ♥

I also took a moment to visit UBER for this amazing round where I, yes, picked up another LAQ head.  This beauty is called Athena, and I did not in any way reshape the head, I just put her on my body style.  You can purchase the matching skin while you are there, and that is shown on the head right now.  Remember with LAQ you only have to purchase the head if you already own one as the HUD is reusable from head to head.  Which allows the owner to cut down the cost ♥

While at UBER I also picked up the new Cae necklace set.  This came with earrings but I think the hair (also from UBER) is covering it.  The necklace is a layered bundle of cuteness as each tier supports cute little stars and moons (the name necklace is a custom and not included).  Speaking of the hair earlier, I am wearing the new LAMB release.  It comes with a style HUD that allows you to choose three different ways to wear the bangs, and I really love the full looking bangs.  The little side swipe in the front is very cute.  So make sure you test out the demo while you are there because … its totally adorable and versatile in how you can wear it.

So that is all I am going to talk about, you can check out more below ♥ Check out the UBER event and the main stores.  Have fun with your purchases ☺

Your Body is Art

Being part of SL for 10 years is a long time and I have been reflecting on my old pictures on Flickr before I moved them off my page.  I have gone through so many changes and looks through all those years.  Some of them I was thinking to myself “What the hell are you thinking?!”  and “Ew, you thought that was cute?” Then there are those times I am walking around SL doing my own thing, I realize that others have some interesting looks.  I see really gorgeous avatars and then I see some really questionable people.

The thing to remember is that each person is art in some form.  From Michelangelo or Picasso your body fits in somewhere.  We dress our bodies up with skins and makeups, clothing and accessories.  Each piece is another part of the creation that we are making almost every day.  As a blogger, I am making art all the time.  It is one of those creative outlets that just make me happy.  I don’t always have time to escape into the real world and do these things but in SL I can be creative as I please.

Today I am showing the upgraded skins by LAQ to go with the heads.  If you are a LAQ user then you can purchase the new skins and get the same tones as before.  For those that are new to LAQ there is a number system with 8 different tones ranging from pale to dark.  What I love about these skins are they do not have that orange tinge that some skins tend to have.  The update bodies now INCLUDE FREAKLES (Freckles).  Yes I call them freakles.  They are made for Maitreya, Belleza, Omega, and Slink.   Make sure to head on over to the main store and test it all out! Find the shade that works best for you and also test out the heads too, because they are so gorgeous and I love wearing all of them!

Oh! if you are interested in my background.  You can get yours from Tres Chic, it just opened and it was created by Shady Bonne owner of House of Shade.  It’s a cute little Art Studio ♥ There is so much potential with a set like this so make sure you check it out!

I am a blogger!

Hi everyone! I am hoping you are all having a good day! Its the weekend and its time to finally relax after a hard week of working.  I am bringing you another LAQ head creation.  Mallory is stepping up her game and brought us not only a new head and skin, but she has placed out some TEARS.  I am including a link to the tears by the picture so you can see her high rez video clip of the tears.  Unfortunately I don’t have software that would allow me to grab it the way I wanted.  I am open to suggestions if anyone wants to let me know how to grab screen recordings.  I think I really like this head for the fact that it is a bit different in the girly girl look that comes out from LAQ.  Rain looks a bit mature and to me more like a tomboy look and i really am digging on it.  I did minimal edits on the face to define the parts that I liked.  You can however try the demo at Collabor88 where you can find the head, skin and tears! You will not be disappointed. ♥

While you are at Collabor88 you can test out the hair I am wearing my #Foxy.  I really love how this hair brought out my tomboy kinda look.  It’s pigtails in the back with ribbon laced through the tops of the tails, and feathers and chain in the back (which you can see here). I was really happy with this hair, its perfect for those times when you wanna be casual and yet have a little complicated in the look.  I say this because I know in the real world I am not gonna even try to do that to my hair, but I love the look!

Tears are available.  If you would like to see what that would look like, please click the link and see the LAQ video on the tears ♥

My Black Heart’s To Blame

Just a picture I was inspired to do by Dreaming Thicket’s new beautiful royal crown release at Enchantment. I wanted to do a more solemn but visually impactful photo that was not your usual kingly picture and this was the outcome. I was lucky enough to find the perfect skin tone made by Plastik that matched what I had in mind. This tune set the mood for this creation 🙂

Simple Beauty

This is going to be a short and sweet post.  I love this dress…. the end.

 

 

Kidding.  But seriously I love this dress.  I wore it for my party when it was my birthday! Its so simple and delicate.  Now when I say simple I do not mean that in a bad way at all! Its very elegant and sweet.  I find it pure.  But the way I have it styled is very simple.  Just an up style of my hair and the dress ♥ I feel that the dress is the shining moment and doesn’t needs all the flashy to go with it.  Which is why I called its Simple Beauty.  The details of the dress says it all in my opinion.  Mesh flowers adorn the dressing gown and makes up the straps of this gown.  It’s long and graces the floor just lightly.   You can find it at FaMESHed.  Created by JustBecause.  Make sure to test out the demo and just enjoy it.  There are so many colors and flower color options too! Place on the HUD and style it to your fitting ♥

Best Mates Squad

For the past few seasons, my squad and I have been playing Fortnite (instead of League) so when MadPea made these awesome golf carts, I immediately knew I had to do a pic with my best mates. The new season of Fortnite introduced all new ATKs that we absolutely love and usually my cuzzy is our designated driver. So in this picture, you’ll see me sporting the Bandolier look, my cuzzy wearing the Redline look, and Jin is rocking the spot-on Reaper aka John Wick look.

Getting this scene set up was a bit more difficult than I had thought! I knew I wanted the party bus in back as well as a glider for someone to fly in the scene on. However, I couldn’t find anything in world that were close to what you would find in Fortnight, so I started piecing things together from other items, making a make-shift laser-shark glider and a rudimentary party bus. However, the golf cart from MadPea was perfect as is!

These MadPea Krazy Karts are fully functioning vehicles, seating up to three avatars with different sit animations. The car can be set to everyone, group only, or owner only. You can find these golf carts at The Gacha Garden where there is a total of 9 Commons, 1 Rare, and 1 Seed of Inspiration item to win from this set.

Are you a Rebel?

Location: Kalopsia

Oh my gosh, I left the house! I went out and found a place to blog.  Well actually I didn’t find a place.  Mostly, I love this design of a store front.  Its Kalopsia’s main store location and I really enjoy it because there are many nooks you can take some really gorgeous pictures at.  This would be another spot on her sim! I really do enjoy finding new ways to use this location ♥

I am back with another obsession of LAQ heads.  This time I am doing something a little different.  I am wearing Rebel.  I adore this head so much.  She is beautiful to work with.  What I done different is instead of showing you an out of the box head, I am showing you what happens when you change the shape, and add a skin that isn’t for the head.  I really enjoy how these heads are very multi-changeable.  You can mix and match different skins and shapes and make something of your own. When I blog I like showing what you get and try to keep things like edits to a minimum.  This time I wanted to show you that you can make this head your own and create a look that would suit your needs.  Being I am not a shape maker, I normally wear the shape that comes with (completely free in the package) and I would make small edits along the way.  Make sure you save so if you need to back track you can do so. LAQ shapes are very easy to work with I am positive you will find the best look to suit your needs.  Take a demo and practice!

To go with my head, I am wearing the new TRUTH hair! Its called Livia, and bias me cause I am Olivvia I wanna buy all the things that mimic my name.  This hair is so fluffy like and sweet.  I really am adoring this hair in red too.  Normally I am a brown and blond girl .. so to step out of the box, I am being a redhead and I adore it.  I really didn’t think I would enjoy the reds as much but it works so nicely with my face shape and look that I had to keep it.  I cannot say enough that would tell you how much I think this hair will be my favorite! Good thing I have the full pack and can wear all the colors ♥

FaMESHed opened yesterday! I am wearing a new Cae necklace from there. This tier necklace is beautiful, and it has a dangle chain on the lower half that falls perfectly.  There is a plate on the upper part of the necklace.  There is like always a HUD in the pack where you can change aspects of the necklace.  But I was really in love with the look of it out of the box, normally I like changing up the design … but I really couldn’t get over the look.  If you would like a closer look you can see the ad pic at the bottom of the post ♥

Last is my dress from Erratic.  Summer is finally here and its hot outside.  This is the perfect dress for the season.  No straps and light material that would allow your body to breathe.  Which to me screams comfort.  Anything that makes me comfortable is a win in my book.  This was part of Fifty Linden Friday last week, but you can still purchase in the store for normal price.  There are so many colors you can get.  But I was falling for this black floral.  It was girl and pretty and just what I needed in my life.  Make sure you wear panties with it, as this set doesnt have any.  But this would be cute with leggings too!

Okay, I am done rambling bout things.  If you would like any of these items or wanna see the main stores of these places, you can find the information below ♥
