Completely Untouched!

I have spent what seems like years looks at perfect looking pictures where people seem to be untouched! I have always wondered how people can look so good while the background is blurry and yet the person seems to fit flawless into it! Well this time while looking at the flickr I seen a new tutorial placed up that shows JUST how to do that flawless look.  I wanted to give it a go.  I am so amazed by the turn out of this picture!  Soo …

Thank you Daeberethwen Arbenlow for posting this tutorial that would allow me to create this amazing picture with out edits!! Anyone that is reading my blog, just click her name, its a link to her Flickr with the post that will show you how to do this amazing skill.  So what I am meaning by no edits is this … I took two pictures like she said.  THE ONLY thing I done in PS is followed her directions, which did not require to manipulate my avatar in any form.  This is a natural shot of my avatar in world.  I really cannot stop gushing over the technique.  I think I even annoyed Caleb with it so much so that he hung up the phone while I was talking haha.

If these are the results of what my pictures can be with a simple windlight, and the merging of two layers in PS to make me look like this… to give my readers the opportunity to see a clear shot of the looks without editing of the highest degree this is … just wow.  So click the name … take a shot and learn something new.  You will be happy with the results, if I can follow her directions … seriously anyone can!

Right Here Waiting ..

So as the title states I am waiting … you might ask for what I am waiting for?  Welp that would be the husband! He was gone for a WHOLE WEEK and I am traumatized. Lucky him he went to this magical place called the City that Never Sleeps, and did all the fun things, and you know what?! HE LEFT ME HOME! I mean all kidding aside, I am happy to have him home though, its rough being away from your loved ones for so long.  But I did have our little cute kiddo to play with … so many hearts here! While he was away though, I did manage to go shopping.  The one time I am allowed to do the events without him.  So I visited Collabor88 AGAIN! I went twice because I wanted things I missed out on because of it being busy ♥

I really wanted these pants, I mean CYNFUL … GIRL yes please with these pants.  I been looking for amazing jeans that do JUST THIS.  I love wide leg pants, and I LOVE LOVE LOVE how these cover the toes.  I mean these bad girls are perfect for the heels.  That little sliver of shoe to poke out.  OR TOES! I mean I did wear these barefoots.  BUT I AM IN LOVE … yes I am using all the caps with these pants.  Because I want them all! UGH! I swear, just gimme them.  Ok well I will buy them but shh we can all wish right!

Then! yes my then deserves a big exclamation mark.  I picked up this sweater/top with scarf from Just Because … UGH I am in love with this too.  This just screams fall to me! I swear I wanted to do all the colors all at one time with this shirt, but I had to pick one to feature.  So I went the basic route and choose the black color.  All over the Flickr I have seen this top floating in so many colors, so I wanted to pick one that someone didn’t do.  But I am sure Black is out there already but shhh, lets pretend it was me that did it first.  BUT I love this scarf that goes with it.  I mean there are three to pick from in the material design.  All of them are equally beautiful and amazingly great to match the shirt.  And the color choices are superb too.  I just wanna wear it all at once, I know I keep saying that but its true.

So if you haven’t been to Collabor88 then you NEED TO GO NOW! I swear I am not yelling at you, I am just excited not about just the hubby coming home but the fact that shopping was so therapeutic to me that I wanna have you go out and feel it too! Anyhoo links are at the bottom and have fun shopping!! ♥♥

House is the Onsu Cucumber

Fall Is Upon Us

Well hello my pretties! ♥

I was lucky after a whole day of trying to FINALLY get into Collabor88.  I mean it was insane trying to get in.  But with a few helpful tricks of my TP hammer, and my shutting off all you people that aren’t my friends, I was able to walk around freely and no lag! And I got all the things I wanted and some Demos too.  The sad thing is with Demos you cannot try them at the main place with it being so full of people.  So I will be making a second trip back to get the rest of things I wanted.  But I will share what I did manage to get!

I want to start with my Decor this time! I mean omgosh Dust Bunny you outdid yourself with this set.  I mean hay barrels, flowers, wheel barrow and an ax in a log.  These items are PERFECT for the fall and great decorations.  I made the wall of hay by stacking them all up and just making it.  I think this would be great for any boarders that you want.  And even after the holidays this would be a great decoration for any part of your house, or barns if you have them! I also picked up this basket of pumpkins from Pilot which was part of a group of great items but I really wanted the pumpkins the most.  These are so adorable.  I had to have them ♥

Next at Collabor88 was my hair.  Exile always places out many great hairs.  I mean the colors are one of my favorites, and while I normally go for the blonds, in the packs, I love the reds for this fall look! Now they say that red and pink don’t mix but forget that, I am so rocking this look.  This hair is perfect for my Blueberry outfit. Which by the way is in the main-store. You can buy them in parts, or you can get the fat-pack.   To bring the whole look together, I picked up the new boots by Reign, from Collabor88.  These are the best staple to have for any any dress like outfit for the fall.  You can choose the colors, of many varieties and the socks come with it, which makes this even better.  For me this is a classic to my wardrobe and its nice that they are made for the bodies and fitted just right.  I feel like you will be seeing these more often.

Let a Little Light Shine In…

All I needed was a little light, and I found just that.  If you head on over to TresChic you can find the perfect item.  By Fox City, you will find some amazing poses, and if you purchase the fat pack you will get the light I am talking about.  Creating these beautiful lines of shadow in your portrait.  Please keep in mind that you need to have your windlights on to use said item.  You get 4 different lights:  Wide, Thin, Little Dots, and Large Dots.

I don’t even know where to start next, Everything I am wearing is from an event and All of them are great ♥ If you love Besom hair, like I do you can get this gorgeous up-do at the Kawaii event.  This pretty thing is a messy bun, but if you wear the HUD that comes with you can take away the tendrils and have a perfect little neat bun.  But, me … I never do anything the neat way *haha*  You can get many looks from this style.

Are you excited for Shoetopia? Cause you will find these adorable wedges there! These are by Eudora, this maker is a very much talented.  With these shoes, you get a HUD you can change all the aspects of the shoes, its great.  With this option you can match your outfits perfectly, depending on the pack color you choose, there is also the option of the fat pack where you can get all the colors.

Next up would be my amazing skinny jeans.  These are by Just Because.  You can find them at UBER which just opened so please keep in mind that it might be hard to get into.  But when you do, the jeans are perfectly form fitted.  But these pants are special.  Why you might ask?  Because you can wear them several ways.  Let me tell you how you can wear them:

These jeans come in 4 versions –
1. (tight) – This is a tight fitting pants version
2. (tops) – This is a looser top pants version so you can wear it over shirt & bodysuits)
3. (boots/tight) – This is a tight fitting version that is made specifically to be worn with the *Just BECAUSE* Anna Boots. (Found in the main store & Marketplace).
4. (boots/tops) – This is a looser top version so you can wear it over shirts & bodysuits as well as made specifically to be worn with the *Just BECAUSE* Anna Boots. (Found in the main store & Marketplace).

Finally I am going to talk about my accessories.  Cae has done it again, earrings and necklace.  You can purchase both, or separate.  Gosh, I am totally adoring the items that she places out.  You can have sophistication and elegance, or you could have a completely casual look.  The only issue would you have with these is picking the color you want to wear, because you have all the options to pick and choose.  The gems change and the metals change.  We have the hard choices of picking our favorites and wearing them.  You can find these wonderful pieces at Cosmopolitan ♥

Look Me In The Eyes ..

 

Well Hello My Pretty People, This has been a crazy week because we launched the new blog, which if you are reading this you know all about it.  Caleb has been on vacation and I been lazy as hell.  I think I been living in this outfit for a week now, since the day he left.  So I am going to do a blog on it.  There are so many events opened, that have been opened for a little bit now.  I really have an addiction to shopping, I think I need some therapy and all.  Its amazing my Credit Card still works…. but its sooo worth it to me.

So this jacket, is amazing, its by Vale Koer and honestly, I was shocked by it! I say this because I know them for shoes.  Amazing Shoes.  But when I seen this jacket and tried it on I knew that I had to have it.  Now this purchase you can get in single colors or the fatpack.  If you get the fatpack, you get ALL the colors.  If you get singles, there are only a few options.  The price for the fatpack is a deal, so make sure you snag that up.  You can find it at the Collabor88 Event.  Which has been opened for a week now, which means you should be able to get in.  On that this is the birthday month so you get all the goodies and then some from extra guests!! Also while you are there, make sure you grab the hair I am wearing by Exile.  I am in love with this long locked look.  There are so many color options and I am falling for the mixed blond and brown color.  It fits amazing to my head and I have to admit, I have an addiction to his hairs … but shhh don’t tell ♥

Have you been to UBER yet? If you do go, you will find these amazing bell bottom pants.  Caleb doesn’t like bell bottoms, but he made an exception for these I think it has to do with the booty of these pants, cause its like damn.  I know I been talking about my booty alot! Shhh don’t judge me.  The booty is good and deserves to be talked about.  Besides you know it will look good in these jeans so I might as well let you know that so you buy the pants.  There are SO many colors to pick from.  I actually really loved these darker color ones, which is a bit of out of my normal, I usually love the lighter colors and here I go with darks to confuse everyone.  Sometimes you gotta step out of your norm to really test out the new things!

Next I wanna talk about this choker/collar around my neck! This is a creation by Cae, yes, I talk about Cae a lot because frankly I love her stuff.  I mean why wouldn’t you.  But anyhoo she has this collar at ROMP.  What I love is that you can wear this as normal or you can wear the RLV one so you can let your significant other play with you.  I find both to be really handy.  Do you know what I love about the RLV aspect.  I get lazy.  Yap, I get lazy.  Caleb can drag me around TP me to places and not leave me behind all AFK and stuff.  So for me that is the best part of the collar.  Though I think he secretly feels like he has some power over me haha.  Again that is a SHHH thing, don’t be telling people.

So that is all the goodness from events that are happening around the grid.  SO I want you to go shopping, have fun, buy all the things and show it off.  But please come back and visit us again soon, cause we will have more goodness coming your way!! ♥

He Belongs to Me ..

It is not everyday when I can assert as to what is mine.  We started off two years ago, and while we were apart, deep down I knew he was mine.  Then one day, out of no where, he came back.  A simple Hello was all it took.  All the rushing feelings come back and I had to pin him down.  There is always a part of me that will always always be his.  Nothing will change that.  ♥  So while pinning him down I had to look good doing it.  What better way to look good then to cover my legs in the new release by Just Because. I really love the looks of these because frankly they shine and the black with particular wind-lights show that off so well.  None of the shine on the pants are accentuated at all, they are the natural looking highlights from the materials look I was able to pick up.  Now you might be asking yourself where can you pick up some amazing leggings like this?! Welp let me tell you, these lovelies are from Collabor88 which has just opened.  So be prepared to fight the lag to get in!

I have added with this outfit my shirt from Addams! Now if you have been part of their birthday bash, you could have collected all the coupons that will give you random amounts of money off your purchases.  Just wear the coupon, pay the price, click the coupon and get your refund back! Its that simple.  While the chance to get the coupon are over you can still use them until the 30th.  So make sure you buy up all the clothing’s now.  Including the top I am wearing, I love how it falls to right before the bottom of the breasts, and yet is long sleeved.  The details on the shirt are amazing, as you can see the wrinkles of how the shirt fits against the body.  Make sure you head over to the main store and get yours today.  So many colors to have, and if you buy the fat pack you get a HUD that allows you to change all the colors and get so many different choices.

As for the boy-toy under my Reign heels … well you can’t have him.  But you can pick up the shoes at the main store.  They are a gorgeous pair, that too come with a HUD that allows you to pick the color of your choice.  I adore the strap around the heel of the shoe.

So go out shopping have some fun, and if you get into Collabor88 please be courteous to those around you and remove your hud’s to lower the lag.  That is the best way to shop, and a little tip if you are using firestorm, you can now hide all those that aren’t on your friends list for easier shopping!

I Sing For Him….

Hello my lovelies, while being carried around by the Mafia boss today like the princess I am … we decided to hit up some events.  First off being the Vintage fair, where we found a plethora of items that we absolutely love.  This event is catered to all things from the past, from all sorts of time periods, so if you are into the older items you can check it out.  Because I am blogging so much from the events, please check out the listing below to find out what all came from there!

We also went to Collabor88 where you will find most of what I am wearing, like my hair and the dress.  I am loving the long flowing locks that I gotten from Exile and its a great hair piece to add to your collection of hairs, well if you are anything like me, its a massive collection of hair, but its another design that will fit amazingly with my styles.  I am also sporting this mini like dress by Apple May Design, and its a gorgeous number, I love the look of it and the way it wrinkles in all the right places.  The details are perfect, and the shading details are defiantly eye catching … though the Mafia boss was not happy about me walking around in it … so controlling ♥

The last thing on my list for events that I went to is TLC where you will find the heels I am wearing from Eudora, now it seems he has been on a bit of a hiatus and its nice to see Mr. Eudora back in business and creating.  Like usual his shoes are amazing, they come with a HUD that allows you to change just about every little detail of the shoe to be exactly what you are looking for to match an outfit.  Now with these shoes if you have ALL the huds, you can mix and match them to make have colors from different huds allowing to make TONS of color mixes.  I had fun doing that with my shoes.

So everyone reading, go out have fun make your own styles, and check out all the events I promise there is something for everyone at each one.  I am however not responsible for your over spending of lindens! Have fun 😀 ♥

Meet me at the Beach

Hello you beautiful people! I am hanging out at the beach today, and I am sporting the new suit by Blueberry, you can find this racy one-piece at Collabor88.  I am loving the this material.  Now I am going to tell you upfront to have this leather looking material, you MUST get fat pack, this is one of the exclusive colors that you get when you purchase the whole shebang.  With the HUD you can choose your colors and that means the laces too! So mix and match and have fun creating new looks.

I had a chance to sneak peak the Tres Chic event.  Here you will find my new obsession of a hair designer, which is DOUX.  This hair is nicely designed where you look beautiful.  I will ask you to PLEASE test the demo.  There are three sizes in the pack.  With my LeLutka head I have to wear the large.  So if you have a bigger sized head you might want to make sure it works for you. BUT I am in love with the colors that he makes for the many hair styles, this particular one is in the fades pack, so you get brown going down to the blondes, ite perfect for my look I am going for.

Do you have a dock? Maybe you are looking for a pose that is easy to use and you dont have to make a full set up with.  This accessory with poses is a great way to pose and look comfortable and work your beach set with rails.  There are three different looks to this set, and I found this one to be the best for the beach.  Granted there are MANY uses for items like this.  And there is no limits to your imagination.  You can get this lovely item from Le Poppycock at the Ultra Event which will be opening soon ♥

So like always go out have fun when you are shopping test out them demos and create your own fun looks.  Down below are the infos.

Rolling in the Sand

Hanging out on the beach today, I think I got a little sandy! But that is okay, because frankly it was worth it.  Izzie’s has this great tattoo set for the bodies that make rolling around in the sand perfect for those days you just wanna be sandy.  And its perfect for the beach.  If you are wearing the LeLutka head like I am, then you can place the Logo Omega HUD on and it will go to your face, so you can have the sand look there too.

I am in love with this dress from Just Because.  There is a non sheer and the Sheer, as you can see I am wearing the sheer and its amazing, its just the right amount of see through that leaves you wanting a bit more and yet gives you coverage.  As you can see it comes with panties too so you don’t have to worry about flashing your lady parts to the world.  I am digging on the material that show on this dress.  I am wearing the holo looking color of this and its great in the lights.  You can find this amazing dress at Collabor88.

You can also find the hair I am wearing there as well.  I am in love with how these wind blown hairs are being released by Exile.  First the group gifty and now this one.  You can wear this version with or without the bangs.  On that this one comes with a ton of colors.  You can choose from your favorite pack and if you are anything like me … you will need the fatpack.  All the colors are amazing and for some reason, I always mention this … but the blonds in his pack are always impressive.  The detail is just … I want more haha.

Like always I have all the details below.  Go out and have fun shopping.  Make the look your own and show it off. ♥
