Sylvia Skin coming soon to Glam Affair!

sylviafin

The Sylvia skin coming soon to Glam Affair was probably on my list of top ten happiest moments in Second Life.

I realize that it probably sounds dorky but I don’t even care! When I started seeing previews of the teaser for this skin on Plurk and then when I saw an inventory offer from Ms. Aida Ewing herself.. I probably squee’d myself silly. That’s how excited I was.

This skin has a ton of options and I tried to decent pictures of all of them. There are so many different ways that you can wear this skin. There are nose, brow, lip, and cheek options. 24 different lipstick options and 8 different eye make-up options.

The possibilities are seemingly endless! I’ve taken a photo of each lip and eye option:

lips2

lips3

lipssticksa

As you can see.. yes those are quite a few customizations! But there is still more! I took photos of the cheek, brow, lip and nose layers!

brows

cheeks

lips

nose

Whew.. yes that is a lot but imagine all the looks that you can create! I put a few of my favorites together here:

I’m not sure when the skin is coming to the store, I’m just happy that it exists! I can see this being my new go to skin and not just because it shares my name but because it’s totally customizable and you can mix and match the make-ups and facial options like crazy!

I can’t really pick a favorite aspect of this skin because I love it all. The nose, eyes and lips I feel fit together so well with my shape and like I’ve said I love all of the options.

The necklace in this post is a free hunt gift from Cae – coming soon to an event called Mingle. I will be doing a post or two I’m sure on Mingle as soon as I have more details.

Let’s live without thinking

gate2

let’s live suddenly without thinking

under honest trees,
a stream
does.the brain of cleverly-crinkling
-water pursues the angry dream
of the shore. By midnight,
a moon
scratches the skin of the organised hills

an edged nothing begins to prune

let’s live like the light that kills
and let’s as silence,
because Whirl’s after all:
(after me)love,and after you.
I occasionally feel vague how
vague idon’t know tenuous Now-
spears and The Then-arrows making do
our mouths something red,something tall
-ee cummings

For starting this Seven SL Facts Meme. I’m gonna give it a go but first I wanted to say that I’m loving this jewelry set by Caelan Hancroft called Sakura that will debut at the Liaison Collaborative tomorrow along with some other really gorgeous items, that you can see if you follow that link and look at the growing flickr pool.

Ok, facts.

1. Sylvia is my third try at Second Life. It’s true. I first tried Second Life in 2005 under “Anais Vox” but the account was deleted because back then you had to pay ten dollars a month and I only signed up for a quick trial. I never tried to get it back. The second time was an avatar born just two days before Sylvia but I didn’t like her name so Sylvia became my main.

2. I’ve been partnered a few to many times in SL, most of it was friendship and fun though. It’s important not to take yourself too seriously here. I met a few ladies who I would consider to be some of my best real life friends now, who knew?

Yeah I’m looking at you Marls, Uglee, Kate and Cae. Sometimes I might not have seen eye to eye with you, but you four have saved me all in different ways and I love you.

3. My inventory is totally unorganized and its just below 100k. I’m super sentimental and keep a lot of things. If SL had a hoarders show I’d probably be on it.

4. I believe in SL families. Not many people know this but I have a child avatar that I’ve played for 3 years and she has a Mom and Dad. It’s funny how Second Life brings people together and gives you a chance sometimes to have what you can’t really have in RL. My SL Mom and Dad, though sparse the last year or so still mean a lot to me. My SL mom is listed in my RL Facebook profile as my RL mom and My SL Dad means a lot to me because I never had one. My childhood was less than stellar without going into it and SL Family gave a piece of that back to me.

5. Even though I want to make more friends here, I’m really shy even in a virtual world. Sometimes, before I even open my mouth – I automatically assume that people are not going to like me and I wish I could just get over that. It’s hard for me to start conversations, but I do enjoy them.

6. I love my Job at Gos Boutique and Gos in general. I’ve only been there a little over a month and I like helping people out when I can as it forces me to be social. I like the sense of purpose it gives me and I love the shoes, and Gos is pretty nice to work for too.

7. I like Plurk. I know that we all have our ups and downs but in generally plurk is how I learn about things that are going on in SL and connect with people. It has greatly enhanced my SL and has made friends for me and has helped me get to know people and break out of my shell a little by talking to people I might not have spoken to before.

Thank you for the Meme, Berry ❤

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!

Rubies of Desire

Imagine this: We are locked up together for the afternoon. It’s raining outside.. the sky is over cast and the crackling of thunder seems to be getting closer and closer. There is no way we are going outside in this downpour. I kind of like you and I notice you looking at me a lot.

You are an artist and you have hands that I’m constantly staring at. I ask you to take my photo.. and you blush and look away.. and I plead with you.. just this once.. and you slyly look to the side and agree to this.. pulling out of your bag a set of jewelry that is so beautiful that I gasp.. and step back for a moment. Rubies contrasted against dark metal.. you smile and whisper “Desiderio”.

Well.. I felt my skin blush but then.. I knew what I had to do. I smile and take the box holding two rings, necklace and earrings and put my hair up.. to showcase the brilliance of the earrings.. and remove everything but my boots.. and I walk out to the sitting room and you are turned fixing your camera.. and I lay against the couch in a dramatic pose.

You turn and gasp not expecting me naked but not complaining either.. and begin to shoot my photo.. I can see this look in your eye that I had not caught before.. something in the way you are looking at me.. makes my poses become more deliberate.. more intense.. I feel caught on fire.. burned beneath your gaze.

You lean in and your hand goes to the back of my head and you tilt my face upward to catch better light.. and the feel of your hands.. sends shivers over my skin. You lean forward almost as if you are about to kiss me and think the better of it and stumble back a bit visibly flustered and I smile..

I start to stand and cover my breasts and you move my hands to the side and put your camera down kissing me finally in a long lingering kiss that makes my face blush deeper than the rubies. The rest of the day is brushed aside.. just the way I planned.

Any Questions? 🙂

JeSyLiLO makes pretty skin

Gum which is a new release by JeSyLiLO features a pair of the most lovely glossy lips that I have seen, or well pretty damn close.

The things that I love about this skin is the way that Lilo Glom does this pale skin tone, the details on the body, the glossy lips… and the options of how you can wear this skin. Whether it be glossy or matte, hair base or not and in this case eyeliner.. which to me is great because I love the eyes on this skin too. Do go check them out and try on a demo at least. There are also freebies in store now too!

You know what else I love? LISP Bazaar makes some of the most precious and awesome furniture that I’ve seen on the grid. The chalk board behind me is from them. If you don’t know them do go check them out.

I also love this new dress by Miel along with the leggings. These wintery boots by J’s and this pose by Del May. My hair is from [e] and it was apart of the 111 event and sadly no longer available.

Amperlope makes sexy shapes

With the new Rumor sim design many stores did some house cleaning too. One of those stores is Ampersand Artful’s Amperlope shape store.

I love this shape, it’s called Sexy Sadie, Rule breaker and if I was not so attached to my own I would consider switching over. Amperlope has released several new shapes for fall that you should definately go and check out. They are unique shapes that don’t make you look like every other barbie in SL. These shapes have curves in all of the right places. The skin that I used for this is Phoebe 2 by LAQ.

I’m also wearing a brand new dress from The Sea Hole who has opened a stored at the Rumor recently and I am in love with almost every dress that she sells there, seriously. They are flirty fun and cute and the the Calliope dress is the newest and a perfect compliment to Sexy Sadie, Rule Breaker. The Pose used with the snake is from the ever whimsical and lovely Tea Soup of Tea Poses. Also I am featuring a new comer to SL jewelry. The ring that I am wearing is from {rangs} and it sparkles pretty without being bling riden.

That is all get your butts down to the Rumor today and check out the opening festivities and surprises!
