You

“Uninvited, the thought of you stayed too late in my head,
so I went to bed, dreaming you hard, hard, woke with your name,
like tears, soft, salt, on my lips, the sound of its bright syllables
like a charm, like a spell.”


“Falling in love
is glamorous hell; the crouched, parched heart
like a tiger ready to kill; a flame’s fierce licks under the skin.
Into my life, larger than life, beautiful, you strolled in.
I hid in my ordinary days, in the long grass of routine,
in my camouflage rooms. You sprawled in my gaze,
staring back from anyone’s face, from the shape of a cloud,
from the pining, earth-struck moon which gapes at me”

“and I open the bedroom door. The curtains stir. There you are
on the bed, like a gift, like a touchable dream.”

FLF is back!

So I’m happy to report, whatever the reason one of my favorite weekly sales events is back.. the mother that started them all.. oh yes Fifty Linden Friday. So what did I buy? I got this adorable hair from Wasabi Pills. Makeup from Adore and Abhor, and this shirt from Schadenfreude all for 5oL each.. yay!

Also speaking of good deals the skin that I am wearing is from Myndi Meredith and she is a new skin designer that has made a BARE base skin to put your makeup layers on so you can create a totally new look from all the fantastic makeup layers out there. The Bare base skin in ivory is only 300L and you can check it out here: https://marketplace.secondlife.com/p/Bare-Katy-Ivory/3619662 It is a very nice skin for the price and like I said the ways to customize it are endless. Also my jeans were not on sale and are from Maitreya.

The Hathaway Dress from coldLogic

Every time coldLogic makes a new release it’s a sure thing that I’m going to buy at least something, as they are just that kind of store for me.. and the newest releases of dresses were no exception. They are all beautiful and you should go check em out!

The jewelry in this post comes from Mandala and the hair from Exile. The furniture in the background is from What Next and the house is from Funky Junk which are both my current living room. The Poses in this post are from Collabor88 made by the store Marukin. My skin is from Belleza, the Lily v1.. I felt had the perfect warmth for this outfit.

Almost done with my SL house – as a very special kiddo has come to be my daughter… Miss Tilly Faye Olivier who is an aspiring blogger/fashionista herself who will soon be starting Edgewood Prep. The little one in the photo is my grandchild Ayamemei. Both have brought countless hours of joy to my sl as of recently and my heart is happy. I’m sure that there will be more to come.

One Bad Pixel is pretty in pink

One Bad Pixel, if you haven’t been there already what are you doing? To me they are one of the hottest mesh shops around right now. They have had some recent new releases and one of them is this really beautiful dress with floral embellishments and a daring neckline.

I really think this dress is romantic and sexy at the same time, maybe for a dancing date in SL or an outdoor wedding reception. I am also wearing the new Cynthia hair from Truth.. that little braid is adorable. My skin is from Belleza who in this Lily v1 skin makes some of the most beautiful makeup combinations in SL and has a creamy smooth skin tone. To me, this skin has a warm sensual glow.

And look, how perfectly lady-like and gorgeous the full length of the dress. In this post I used poses from Adorkable.

I love this dress..

Maitreya released part of the summer collection last week and this dress was one of the pieces to come from the collection. I love that the texturing looks so realistic and fresh and this dress is completely unique from the same tired templates we have been seeing being re-textured. This dress has body and a sensual shape, it’s sexy without trying to be, I just love it.

I am also wearing brand new hair from Lelutka called Belle. Mesh Feather earrings by Mandala, Flip flops from Maitreya, the Leah Skin from Glam Affair and my poses are from Purple Poses. Have a cup of coffee and a happy Monday!

Collabor88 gets Kyoot

This little body suit that is at Collabor88 right now made by Kyoot is HOT. It’s the perfect mix of sultry and stylish and I just love it. I paired it with the pink R2 shoes that are also available at Collabor88 and this sex bomb hair mesh hair from Clawtooth, and of course I’m wearing the Mia skin from Glam Affair in a different makeup and you can get all of this at Collabor88.

Collabor88 invites you to a Shindig!

I was ECSTATIC to see Glam Affair come to Collabor88 this month. There were several dresses like this one above in various colors and three different makeups for the very lovely Mia skin that debuted at Skin Addictions Skin Fair a few weeks ago. Also, lets talk about perfect messy updo’s.. this hair from D!va wins at being perfectly wonderful party hair. Collabor88 is rocking this month.

I accented the outfit with some jewelry not at Collabor88 from Mandala and these heels from Celoe and tights from Oh Mai that I’ve had in my inventory forever that are my “go to” tights.

I’ve been a bit behind on posting lately but I soon hope to get caught up.
I hope you are having a lovely weekend!

Happy Birthday Chic!

Happy second birthday Chic Management, you have brought us many great events over these two years and your birthday celebration looks fab.. I know cause I elbowed my way in last night to your opening to check things out.

What’s cool about this event is that it has several designers and each designer has a cube and they are stacked about three rows up and go around in a circle. To check this out in world go here: http://slurl.com/secondlife/CHIC/132/131/2504

Now I wanted to pick up a few pieces to blog so I went with this charming summery beach shack from Nordari to kinda use in the back ground for my photos. I’ve been loving the color blue lately and found this perfect little swimsuit that turns into a dress from Malt.

The hair and skin I also got from the event. The hair is the Anais 2 hair from Wasabi Pills and the skin is from Atomic.. it’s a smokey eyed skin with pale lips which is gorgeous and will only be sold at this event.

The poses that I’m using are from Exposeur, which are not at the event but I like them.. they are from a pose pack called grace and the feet and sandals also not at the event are from Slink. They are my new go to sandals for the summer, and almost perfect with everything.

A few more favorites..

This week SLink released these wonderful sandals that fit with the mesh feet that they sell and they come in a lovely array of colors to match any outfit.. and in my opinion it helps me match my feet easier because I was able to do it fairly quickly for this post. Then.. coldLogic released a buncy of jumpers and this one was my favorite. It just looks so classy. My jewelry in this post is from LaGyo.

I was feeling a bit creative so I messed with this photo a bit but this is one of the newest hairs from Truth who has amazing releases almost every week which impresses me how inventive that all is. The skin is from Belleza which has become one of my favorite skins and the eyes are from Ikon. Ikon has a group gift running till tonight – it’s the green eyes that I had on in the previous post.. they are gorgeous and free to snag until tonight.

Favorite finds this week

So I’m loving FaMESHed this time around. I found this adorable dress from Pixel Mode which comes in a few other colors and this bow ring from Maxi Gossamer which is a new to me shop and this beautiful hair from one of my favorite hair makers Wasabi Pills. You must get over to FaMESHed and check out what else they have for sale, you wont be sorry.

This skin is new from Glam Affair, I think it’s a single skin preview for hopefully an upcoming line but I do not know for sure. The Mia skin is available at the Chic2 Birthday event which opens today and from what I hear it’s gonna be huge… and I’ve seen previews of some of the items on plurk and they look wonderful so it may be beneficial to you to get your butt over there and pick up this skin and see what else is going on!

Have a happy Sunday <3
