The female of the species..

So a few things have come to my attention, and I shall bring them to your attention too! First off the poses in this post are from Exposeur’s advent pack, if you missed this they are at the main store under the tree in gift boxes for really really cheap. There are a bunch of poses in the box if you missed the advent gifts and you need new poses, this is an amazing value.

Speaking of an amazing value.. the skin that I’m wearing in the post is a new group gift from Izzie’s. If you are in the group go and grab it, if not it’s only 250L to join and she gives out wonderful group gifts every month, way worth the value. I am also wearing (brand new from Fameshed) this sweater and pants combo from Rebel Hope, which I found to be adorable so I had to pick it up and my hair is from Truth, and my heels are from N-core. Happy shopping!

Running into a New Year

sitting pretty

i am running into a new year
and the old years blow back
like a wind
that i catch in my hair
like strong fingers like
all my old promises and
it will be hard to let go
of what I said to myself
about myself
when i was sixteen
and twentysix and thirtysix
even thirtysix but
i am running into a new year
and i beg what i love and
i leave to forgive me

Lets make this next year one of the best!

Nightingale’s Sorrow – Diesel Works

Snapshot_029

Rogan Diesel of Diesel Works Poses has released two new photography prop cages, and the one in this post that I am showing is called Nightingale’s Sorrow. The fifteen poses in this photography prop are fully adjustable (quite easily too) and the cage is mesh. I love Rogan Diesel’s photography prop poses because they do half of the work for you already. I didn’t have to do much adjusting aside from the windlight and what not but this cage is pretty fantastic.

I took a sampling of photos with shadows turned and I think they came out pretty well, I’m going to have a lot of fun experimenting with this prop though.

I am also wearing new Glam Affair skin in Amberly, new Fameshed – Wasabi Pills Hair, New Jumpsuit at Fameshed from Rebel Hope, and silver shoes from N-core.

PXL Skins bring us Kate

The gorgeous and long awaited “Kate” skin brought to us by Mister Hart Larrson of PXL Skins has been out for almost a week now and I was lucky enough to get my hands on the lightest tone to show off some of my favorite makeups.

What I like about this skin the most is the ability to add extras. Extra freckles, different cleavage layers. Make up layers that you can put together for totally unique combinations. I love the glossy version of the lips, to me that is a nice option to have.

Kate is available in six skin tones: Pale, Natural, Sunkissed, LightTan, Tan and Dark.

Each tone has a skin base with all options: three breast cleavages three eyebrow styles, freckles on face and on full body (using an included tattoo layer) two different hair styles on tattoo layer 2 different lips, normal and glossy In addition to the skin base there are eleven lipstick colors (normal+ gloss in each color pack) and fifteen eyes makeups.

I am also wearing Shag hair that is for 50L at the Euphoria sale where there are a bunch of things marked in pink bags to 50L. Lingerie from Boom for April’s Collabor88 which is coming tomorrow and shoes from N-core. My jewelry is from Je Suis. My poses in this post are from Adorkable.

Leah by Glam Affair

Leah, is the much anticipated new release from Glam Affair. It’s perfect for redheads and has one of the most beautiful faces that I’ve ever seen on a skin and the makeup’s for this skin are just gorgeous. This skin comes in several tones but I am showing the lightest one as that is my favorite.

The body of the skin is very pretty to me too. I took a couple of photos of the body as well and I’m using poses that Spencer Christenson bought for me the other day when we were out shopping at a store that is very nice called Hopscotch.

The hair that I am wearing in the post is brand new called Mile-High from Ploom. It is a mesh hair and I adore the height of it, it’s adorable. The panties that I am wearing are new from Limited Couture from Line and you get three pairs for 105L but be fast because they are limited edition! The heels that I am wearing are brand new from N-Core.

You really must go demo Leah. If the beautiful make ups were not enough, Leah also comes with over 20 different lipsticks, three freckle options and all the brow options you could ever need. Leah will be at Glam Affair on March 20th. http://slurl.com/secondlife/Beauty%20Avatar%20couture/163/134/24

Collabor88 never ceases to amaze!

Collabor88 for March is newly opened and as always the designs never cease to amaze me. I was super pleased walking around Collabor88 this morning to see all the new and wonderful things.

I’m wearing Aura’s Briar skin in Azure with one of the pretty lipsticks that come with it and for the quality of this skin the price is set at an absolute steal. I’m wearing the Milk Tone which I love. I am also wearing the Organic Silk Dress from League in black and jewelry from Yummy which is this lovely crystal ring and necklace set and the rings come in other colors and I love how realistic the crystals look.. and you must be on a mesh viewer to see them but it’s totally worth it for the quality.

I also picked up these cute boots that are new from N-core. New hair from Fab-U-Lous and I love the color and these poses are from Adorkable. My tights are from the wonderful pack of tights from Izzie’s. They are simply adorable.

Happy Thursday!

Preview of Collabor88!

“Take back what you said little girl
And while you’re at it take yourself back too
I’m tired of sittin’ and waitin’
Woman, whatcha gonna do now, whatcha gonna do about it

I’m thinkin’ about my doorbell
When ya gonna ring it, when ya gonna ring it”

Make a sound and I’ll make you feel right
Right at home
Right at home

You know you got me waiting in vain,
How come it’s so easy to you?
You don’t strike me as the type to be callous
But your words seem so obtuse
But then again I know you feel guilty
And you tell me you want me again
But I don’t need any of your pity
I got plenty of my own friends
They’re all above me

And I’ve been thinkin’ about my doorbell
When they gonna ring it, when they gonna ring it

Sunflowers


“and the gray Sunflower poised against the sunset,
crackly bleak and dusty with the smut and smog
and smoke of olden locomotives in its eye–
corolla of bleary spikes pushed down and broken like
a battered crown, seeds fallen out of its face,
soon-to-be-toothless mouth of sunny air, sunrays
obliterated on its hairy head like a dried
wire spiderweb,
leaves stuck out like arms out of the stem, gestures
from the sawdust root, broke pieces of plaster
fallen out of the black twigs, a dead fly in its ear,
Unholy battered old thing you were, my sunflower O
my soul, I loved you then!”

- from the Sunflower Sutra by Allen Ginsberg.

Just a general post of love in praise of poetry and my love of coldLogic who makes some of the best mesh around. This shirt and pants can be purchased separately or you can mix and match quite a bit with many of their wonderful pieces to make your own fabulous outfit.

I’m still wearing this hair from Exile, the Bring it on hair is a new favorite of mine. The skin from Al Vulo from the Private room event for only 300L is too. I’m also wearing Eyeshadow from Boom.. as the skin is easy to dress up with makeup layers. My shoes are from N-core and the pose where I am standing is from /Geez/

Oh and if you will.. I was hoping for some feedback about my blog or just anything in general.. you can do it anon. here. Would love constructive crit. Thank you!

Bring it on!

Just a quickie to say.. I love the new Mesh Pigtailed “Bring it on” hair from Exile. The style is adorable. I love it. I’m also wearing the Princess Pearl set from Donna Flora, which is one of my favorite pearl sets now in SL. Guess I have good memories associated with it now and Donna Flora does make beautiful jewels.

The dress that I am wearing is an oldie but goodie from DP Yum Yum. So delish and femme. For spring, I want 1000 dresses just like this. The skin is the Alice Skin from Al Vulo for only 300L at the Private Room Event that just started yesterday. Poses are from MiaMai for Fashionably late, and are perfectly executed. Shoes are from N-Core and the bed in the background is from Baffle!

Have a great day!
