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!

Hearts in the Dark

Hello everyone! Have you been to Epiphany? If you aren’t sure what this event is .. its a gacha haven where you can gain all sorts of amazing products.  BUT this one is different.  How you might ask? Well If you have many extras you can rez them, and turn the prize in for points.  With these points you can get exclusive items for stores that you love.  So, I am wearing the items from Apple May.  I was so excited to get this leopard set with the rare glitter skirt!  But what I love the most are the ears! It’s giving me the complete and total meow feeling. This set comes in so many different colors and designs. This is a great set to mix and match with. You can achieve many different colored looks.  So make sure you check it out.

My next find was at the event Tres Chic.  Foxcity has done it once again! I mean her poses are totally amazing. But here lately I been finding that her items at Tres Chic have come with these lighting projectors.  This round the set has come with red hearts.  You must purchase the fatpack, but trust me it was super affordable, and you get 7 poses and their mirrors.  Which to me is amazing.  I find that her poses are amazing for the mesh body.  So far has been on my go to list for single poses.  So make sure you head on over to Tres Chic to check that out and her main store for even more amazing poses.

So yea, this is a short and sweet post.  I wanted to get this out there before these events close, I am really bad at blogging items that are in events, or I do them at the last moment, but not this time! You have plenty of time to go check these out still. ♥

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.
