06/06/2018 – Vintage Fair – Part 2

I don’t get the smoking in SL. I’m a smoker in RL (well not at the moment for baby bump reasons) but I never got the appeal for cigarettes in SL. My avatar is a better version of me, smoother skin, finer features, perkier boobs… I can play with piercings and tattoos at times because, unlike in real life, they can be removed quickly and painlessly, and obviously she’s a non-smoker. But when I unpacked this cigarette with mouthpiece from Dreamcatcher I knew I just had to show you. It comes with poses but I used another pose pack, also from Vintage Fair, that’s called Moonlight and Martinis, and includes a cigarette too, as well as a glass of… Martini! As usual, you’ll find all the credits after the pictures!

19/05/2018 – I can’t stand Paris

Anyone who’s actually been to Paris, I mean, really been there, spent time, will tell you that it’s not at all the romantic city people think it is. The smell is horrible, there’s dog poop everywhere, people are rude… Whenever I spend even just one day there, my hair gets super dirty, and I can’t breather properly. If you ever plan on visiting France, let me know, I’ll give you the name of a dozen other cities you’ll love, just, not Paris.

Someone on Plurk was saying the other day that they miss ETD. For those of you who weren’t around then, ETD (Elikapeka Tiramisu Designs) used to be a famous hair brand in SL, that disappeared for a while, and then the designer came back under a new brand, Elikatira. Well you know what? I think her hair now is just as good as it used to be, and the little number she pulled yesterday for Fifty Linden Fridays proves it. Janiah is a super cute hairstyle, that matches perfectly with my lovely Tres Blah dress.

13/05/2018 – Pink and teal make pretty

I am not feeling overly inspired to write anything today, but I wanted to show you a few gorgeous things that I found these past few weeks, at events, stores, or buried deep in my inventory. I’ll start with the hair. I’ve been in the Truth VIP group since the very beginning of the new concept, and some months I barely logged in, or if I did I was too busy with other things to really check what the gift was. So when I found Ginevra, last November’s gift, I just went wow. The super pretty glasses are free from Balaclava, they were the demo for this week’s Fifty Linden Friday offer. Make sure to check FaMESHed this month if you haven’t yet, the Tres Blah dress is yet another little wonder.

06/05/2018 – Good night, sleep tight…

Guess what? I put together another very cool look, with the last of my FaMESHed gifts. Pyjamas, socks, earrings and necklace are free from the event. I promise, in a few days I’ll also show you things one actually has to pay for. In the meantime, let me enjoy the beauty of my l$ balance not dropping down for a couple more hours.

The very cute hair, Jacica, is the latest group gift from Truth. Seriously, if you haven’t joined yet, what are you waiting for? The monthly gift is always a complete fat pack, with styling HUD and all the options. The value is incredible, and all for just a one time fee of 350l$, barely the price of one colour pack!

05/05/2018 – Fameshly pretty

Oh hey! remember that post I did yesterday where I told you about that one full outfit I was able to make only with gifts from the FaMESHed anniversary round? Well here’s a second one. The hair, earrings, dress, septum ring, bracelet and shoes are all free from the event!

The gorgeous tattoo is also a gift from this upcoming round of We ♥ RP, that’s also an anniversary round.

04/05/2018 – May the Fourth be at Fameshed

This month’s Fameshed is an anniversary round, and most of the designers there have gifts for visitors. The problem with gifts at events is that usually, it’s one tiny crappy item that absolutely doesn’t reflect the quality of the designer. I always wonder why they even bother, if anything, it gives the brand bad publicity. Well, this time, it’s different. I was able to set up a complete outfit, only with freebies from the event. I highly recommend going, there are some gorgeous things that I’m going to go back and buy.

27/04/2018 – Being Uber cute part 1/2

Uber opened on the 25th, and I am sorry to say that my bank account didn’t like it at all. The theme this round is Biker Chic, and I will take 2 posts to show you some of the gorgeous things you can get there.

Tres Blah takes the theme to a very high level of cuteness with that dress/leather jacket combo. They come in a bunch of colours, all super pretty, and I just couldn’t decide, so I had to fatpack.

The muddy face and body, and the eye make-up are appliers from Izzie’s, available at Uber too, as well as the latest hair release by Truth, Panny, that is simply adorable.
