Pick a Tree

Caleb and I are on the hunt for the perfect Christmas Tree.  Taking a little break to snap a picture together, because we tend to not do it as much as we like.  I am very pleased with how my little picture came out.  I am going to state now, I did work to the picture via the dress I am wearing so please make sure if you are interested in this item, to test out the demo.  There is one at the main store.

So basically this dress and hair duo is from Exile.  You can find this pretty furry dress at the main store location as a new release.  I have to say I appreciate when a dress is made with a hood that a intended hair is styled with it.  So thank you Kavar for doing just that.  No fuss, in finding one of the millions of hair in my inventory to fit that hood! Now, this dress comes in a pack of three colors, but there are different pack choices to make.  Personally for the holidays, I wanted to stick with Reds and Greens.  Since most people tend to choose red, I wanted to showcase a little different and go Green! Its a beautiful color and I had fun prancing around in it.  Again I am stating to please check out the demo before you purchase as I did manipulate the fur on the dress! But it was so pretty, I wanted to see it fuzzy.  The hair is a nice touch, with a partial side sweep of a look.  The bonus is that you can get the hair and not wear it in the dress.  Wearing it separately is always an option too! ♥

Come a Little Closer

Today I am taking a bit different approach to my close up picture.   I got a bit artsy, kinda … not really, I am sure many people have done this style before.  But I really wanted to show case some really cute and amazing items.  I am not sure where I want to start.  Uhm…. *three hours later* ok the hair.  Exile.  So cute, Its big floofy and adorable.  It reminds me of a semi Farrah Fawcett looking hair.  If you are old enough to know who she is you will understand.  (I AM OLD!) This gorgeous look is new at the Main Store … just waiting for you to pick her up.  So make sure you go do that and have big beautiful floofy hair too!

I am bringing another Christmas Special necklace to the table.  This is again Cae.  This holiday wreath is gorgeous and would make the perfect gift for that someone in your life that loves to have all the beautiful things.  This precious necklace comes with a HUD … but personally why would you want to change the seasonal color of this wreath.  The Christmas theme is just what this necklace is all about.  This can be found at the Tannenbaum event with all the other cute accessories I shown in the previous post.  You can pick up matching earrings too! If you just want parts that is okay, and if you want the complete set then you can buy the full package and save a little L (Who doesn’t wanna do that!) Make sure you head on over and check out the event and her store!

So my Two for One here … I changed my face (AGAIN!) I am sporting a new Catwa head, which is new for me.  This is Lily, and if you got her on the day of release you were able to save 50% off the order.  Which for some is the best deal ever.  The good thing about Catwa is she allows you to take the demo head and allows demo skins to be placed on it so that you can find the perfect match of what you are looking for! Which leaves you wanting to try all the skins, and its nice to play with certain aspects of this face.  Its fully functional in the demo.  I will admit switching over has been a bit hard for me being I am use to a different head, but it only took a bit to figure out what I wanted and needed to make this HUD work the best way for me.   I chosen the new skin from League.  I swear her skins are best for the Catwa head.  I love the details and how she doesn’t have the oh so young look to her face.  I feel young at heart and still hold a bit of youth to myself.  There are several shades to choose from so make sure you are trying them all out to find that right tone for you.  I am wearing pale.  But to be honest the pale is a slightly tan color and one of the most beautiful in the packs.  There are several make up options as well as freakles (yes that is how I say it).  Either way you would be happy with this look ♥

Ok so  I am not rambling all night, check out the credits below so you know what is what, and go out and have fun shopping.  Remember its the holidays and gift cards at these places are totally amazing!!

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.

KITE – Cat Ornament Onyx GIFT

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!

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.

It’s Time for Sweaters…

Ahh the smell of fall in the air ♥ Those leaves are turning, and the Autumn items are coming out.  At least at our house they are! I have never been more excited.  Its my favorite time of the year.  I was shopping at FaMESHed, and I couldn’t believe the sweaters I found! Neve is a store that I haven’t shopped at in a really long time and when I seen this sweater hit my flickr feed .. I come to realize there are many stores I use to shop at and I haven’t visited in a long time.  Then it made me think of all the things I could be missing out on.  So I am going to try hitting up my landmarks and folders seeing where I haven’t been in a while and do a little more exploring. Maybe I will find something new in my little adventure.  We shall see 😀

Now I am excited to show another item, which is the hair I am wearing! This is by Exile, and you can find this at the Ebento event that has opened on the 10th so that means you should totally be able to get in now and not have to fight all that lag.  This hair is a little different than the more fluffy styles that Exile does.  This is a sleek and slender look.  I absolutely adore it. This is a great look for both lounging around and going out on a casual date.  I am sporting this look as the more casual outing.

Before you miss the sale at DeeTalez you should head over to the main store and pick up the skins that are on sale.  What I am really loving is that they are made for so many heads.  I am wearing the Lelutka head and personally I really love the detail of the skin and how it looks on the face.  Normally I am into the bit more tan colors, but when it comes to the cooler months, I adore wearing lighter colors, and this Nordic is perfect for my fall/winter look ♥

Now, I totally mentioned that I love the fall, and if you want some really cute and amazing little things for around your house .. check out What Next! I found all the cute things there that would make any house looks adorable for the holiday!

Honestly, there are so many EVENTS happening that I cannot keep them all straight, let alone what I have blogged in this post.  Its crazy how big these events are getting.  Though I have to admit, I am still finding most of them fun.  I think though at some point – I have become a bit bias.  There are events that are now my favorites and the ones I always look forward to.  But, then I have someone like Caleb who brings me to all the new ones and now my list has grown.  For items I might not mention in a personal way you can find them all listed below!

I am excited about one thing! I finally found a skin that I am in love with.  Don’t get me wrong, I have a million different looks with different heads, but I have to tell you all I have grown custom to my LeLutka head – the Simone, despite the new ones that have just come out, I cannot bare to part with this particular one.  But I always seem to find a skin that satisfies my need for a moment and then I feel like I need to make that change.  So I will totally admit, I forgot that DeeTaleZ sells skins, I don’t know why, but I swear its like I go there for the clothes.  So when I seen that a skin came out for the LeLutka head, I was sold on it.  I had to go and demo out the skin.  Now let me tell you, I placed this skin on and I was instantly realizing I think I have found my look of looks for a while.   But I do want to divulge in a little secret I did find.  On the table next to the skins, she has a sweet little gift out with premade shapes for the Lelutka head and trust me when I say they are pretty.  If I was a new person to the head world and didnt have a shape for my face, or really wanted a new starter face – I would consider this the BEST route to go.  These are not just some thrown together look.  They are really amazing looking thought out shapes, that fit MOST of the heads.  I did try them on the demo heads and found they looked good.  Just I am to attached to my look.

I think because most of my other items are more for the events.  I will just leave my post here.  All the informations is down below and I hope you all find what you are looking for at these events because they are fun to look at.  Where else can you go and get a VARIETY of designers in one area and find new stores.  This is a good way to get a sampling of all the things good in SL.  So have fun check them out … and I will catch you all later ♥ ♥

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!! ♥
