Ofelia

Hiiii my beautiful people! I am actually going to make this a short worded post being that there are three examples of things! So LAQ released a new OMEGA skin ♥ Meet Ofelia, she is not designed for any head in particular but the store ad does show her featured on the Athena head.  I am in one of my pictures wearing her on the Athena, and I love it! But I wanted to show that no matter what head you are wearing that you can make this skin work.  I chose three … Rebel, which is my go to head for my everyday look … and yea gorgeous, then I chose the younger looking head of Sandy to show … and YEP you guess it … GORGEOUS … and we know how I feel about Athena, but … yea loooooove it.

I have so many heads from LAQ because its an obsession at this point, I cannot be helped … sorry.  Just not going to happen any time soon.  As long as Mallory makes cute faces, I am going to be in love ♥  And keep on collecting.  People tend to collect all sorts of odd things … mine is LAQ heads.  So look at the pics and see how amazing this skin fits the heads .. keep in mind Ofelia is Omega so you can test it and demo on other non LAQ heads.

Always waiting …

Hello people of the world – I am posting another HAIR FAIR item.  This one is from Fabia, This is a hair that is made more for pictures! Its a styled hair that when you are laying down it looks best.  BUT there are so many creative people in the world, I know that others will use this hair in creative ways ♥ So a little basic information about Hair Fair … this is a TRUSTED event where you get hair and a portion of the sales go to WIGS FOR KIDS. Where they take the money and purchase items for wigs that allow little kids to feel confident about themselves while they are going through some hard times.  Buy your hairs and feel good that you are helping support children’s happiness ♥

Paired with this hair, I am wearing the Erratic -Fifty Linden Friday- item which is totally cute! Its a very well fitting set that fits nicely on the body (keep in mind that I am wearing the Maitreya Lara body) there were several colors to choose from.  I believe with the event over you can still get them but at normal price, which either way is worth it.  They are gorgeous and fun to wear. So make sure you go check it out!

Ok that is it … short and sweet.  Have a good day all!

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!

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 ♥

The Struggle is Real …

I am going to say that this was the most challenging head I ever done.  This is the new Vista head Zoe, that if you all caught the deal .. you could have bought the head and the AO in the same pack.  Personally I went for the AO, but upon arriving to the main store, I was pleasantly surprised to see that you could get an amazing deal of the Zoe head and Zoe AO all in one pack, and if you are a loyal shopper and use the members card you could get a heck of a discount!  Being that I am a loyal member the head was basically a free item for me.  This does depend on your purchases and how many you make, so not all can claim this items as in a sense “free”.

Now this is why I called this post “The Struggle is Real” I have had this head for weeks and while it did come with a shape and a set of skins in the HUD, none of them really fit my taste, no matter how much I played with the shapes and skin combinations .. I just couldn’t find something that would make this head my style.  I am not going to bash this head because frankly there are some really awesome things about this head that I cannot find in other heads, even by beloved head that I am always wearing.   The issue is not in the head its in the lack of skin makers for this new head and I can be patient, which is what happened.  I been all over shopping for skins that were advertised for this head except one place …

UBER! I went to Uber with my lovey and while we were shopping I seen INSOL … omgosh how did I forget this store makes awesome beautiful skins?! So I seen instantly it was for Vista ZOE and I was more than elated and completely snatched up this demo.  When I placed this applier on the head and then added the shape, it was like the light went off in my head and I wanted this look for my ZOE head, and I got it.  There are so many good benefits in this designer.  The Shape was completely free, in the pack, its modifiable and copy! Then on that the body appliers are FREE in the main store.  You have everything you need to make your Vista head gorgeous, like shown in my picture, I did not tweak the head shape at all.  All I did was make the body shape more mine.  But the head is completely untouched.

Now to not be a Debbie downer on my new head, I want to tell you what it is that makes me love this head.  The HUD for the head is so user friendly, I am in awe of it.  The emotions on it are top notch that honestly, I make this my favorite HUD and emotions over all others as of date.  The smiles fit nicely on the head, it doesn’t look over done at all.  I like the fun quirky like auto replay emotions too.  There are SO many of them to choose from.  So while I say this is a Struggle … at the end of the day, I am completely happy with my purchase.  It takes a little time and patience to finally find what you are looking for.  So if you struggled like I did … take a deep breath, and just give it time.

Just Breathe …

Hello my pretty people! I hope you are all having a good day.  I am finally over being sick for the moment, and I decided to do this blog.  A little mix of this and that from different events.  But I have to say at the moment and I really don’t like doing favorites, but this hat/hair combo! Have you ever seen that 80’s movie “Cant Buy Me Love” if you haven’t because this was before your time, then you should check it out! The girl wears a hat and has hair very similar to this.  I am loving it.  I want more hairs like this one ♥ You can find it at N21.

You can also find the pose that I am using at N21 too. This is by Foxcity now I have to admit I have been obsessively buying her poses lately.  They are bento and work extremely well with my body type.  I say this because most poses are based on body type and not all work with every shape.  But amazing as she is, there is a demo box there for you to test out the poses.  This makes shopping and testing out how great this would be for you! I think a lot of you will love the poses ♥

Next up I wanna talk about REWIND, this little event is where you can find items from the past.  Now I don’t mean the noob stuff from 2009, but actual items that designed like they were from Y2k as I do think this was theme of that round.  Apple May Designs has placed out these hot and tight leather pants.  Let me tell you, while I was sitting here posed like this, Caleb happened to log on and I swear that boys tongue hung out his mouth a mile long.  So if I get that kinda approval, I know you girls will too.

Last and not least by any means is another amazing Cae necklace.  This is one of my favorites of her designs.  Its a layer necklace, this is a great opportunity to mention that it comes with a HUD and a ton of options to change up your necklace.  For instance you can make each layer a different color metal, a different gem color, and many different looks.  I can totally get behind anything that allows you to customize your look to what you are wearing.  So really a must have and yes, I say that a lot ♥

ANYHOOOOOOO, you all have fun shopping and get your items and more items and other items from these events because its fun and you all the things in your inventory ♥

The Interview

I was sitting down to take this picture for my blog and I don’t know .. all of a sudden I felt like I was in an interview with someone of importance.  Not that anything I would have to really say is that important.  But the vibe of the picture was just wow.  I really was digging on the feeling of this picture and it just came together.  So how are you lovely people doing today?

There are so many events, sales, and new releases going on! Gosh, I have so much to cover as I discover them.  For instance, Exile has released new hair at the mainstore.  TWO of them! This is one … but omgosh they are adorable.  I swear I repeat the same things over and over about a store that I just love.  But his blonds are killing it! I mean I remember back in the day when it was like ’06 and blonds couldn’t be worn that much unless you wanted to be like barbie with the huge glow.  I couldn’t pull it off.  But slowly over time the color has been coming out so well with designers.  This mid-length hair style is just perfect for those days when you are just wanting to let it hang down and be comfortable.

I then hit up ERRACTIC because that store is having a sale for a bit ALL ITEMS ARE 50% off!! So if you are missing some of your favorite sets or peices, THIS is the time to go over there and hit them up and get all you want.  These things don’t last long.  On that its been packed and took me a bit to get in.  So maybe when you are all reading this you can get in.  I will cross my fingers for you.  I picked up this very pretty dress and a ton of other things while there.  The floral patter on this blue just called to me when I seen it.  So it now totally belongs in my collection of summery/spring like items.

Cae is once again participating in the FaMESHed Round.  Which I have to say the new build is gorgeous.  Despite what people were saying I was loving on the last design too.  The wide open spaces.  But this is nice too.  Easier to navigate for those of you non cammers that don’t get around so well … pfft.  (yep I went there).  But You can find this gorgeous necklace set with earrings at the new round.  I do find it hard to wear earrings, I think its more because my choice of hair styles are that tend to frame my face.  But that doesn’t mean I don’t love them nor that I don’t have them.  I need to start finding more up-do like hairs to showcase the earrings.  But with all of Cae’s items you get a HUD that allows you to change the colors of the stones and the metal and its just perfect for that little bit of accessorizing.

The last thing I want to talk about before I end my blog is Gacha Garden is open and I found the cutest little closet set for girls.  You have your choice of light or dark.  For this look I am using my light set.  You play the machine and you have a chance to win.  I am really enjoying that aesthetic of how it looks and the sweetness the lighter colors give.  If you are interested in the darker one, its more goth with its red and blacks.  So it caters to all! So make sure you head on over and check it out before the event ends.  But you got time don’t worry.

All links are below … and if you wanna follow me or Caleb on flickr… you can find that information on the right 😀
