Howdy! Remember when I said I'm going to do a full review of the Linn skin before? Yep!

This gorgeous new face from Glam Affair called Linn comes in 5 skin tones - Light, Natural, MedTan, Tan & Dark. I love the difference between the tones, everyone will find their preferred tone in this skin line.

(make ups 1-4) What I look for the most in skins are the make ups. I love a variety in make ups and Linn has it all! From simple to glam. Linn comes in 12 gorgeous make ups to choose from.

(make ups 5-8) I love the different make ups here. The eye shadows go so well with the lipsticks. They're not overly messed up and contain the right amount to make it all so comely.

(make ups 9-12) The last three make ups are interesting. While most won't wear them everyday, they can still be used sometime on some sort of occasion. The skin comes in light and dark brows, Aida also made some eyebrow tattoo layers with more shades and since I'm a redhead in SL, I really appreciate that!… Read the rest. glamorous linn (tones)

VoguE – Steffi Gown

I know some countries have Boxing Day, but now that Christmas is over, I am finally finding some time to post about a beautiful gown from VoguE.  I had taken pictures of these about 2 weeks ago, but I had something that happened in RL that got in the way and I wasn't able to post them earlier.

This is a gown that was released from VoguE very recently and I loved the graduation of the two colours on the skirt.  Zalyn Bailey, who is the owner and the designer of VoguE, has prepared many colour variations which all have this feature with different colour combinations.  And the all-ruffled top is just so cute!

I also liked how it has this skirt that is completely long from the back and side views, and yet, when you look at it from the front, it looks like a sexy mini dress.

VoguE - Steffi Gown (Royal Blue)

VoguE also has a series of Glitter Makeup in tattoo layers which I am totally in love with.  Although it's called "Glitter Makeup", it's not too glittery and each glitter eye-shadow colour comes with 4 different shades of lipstick, which makes it very "easy to use."

VoguE - Glitter Makeup Set 1 ~ D (Lavendar with wine lipstick)Outfit: VoguE, Steffi Gown (Royal Blue)
Makeup: VoguE, Glitter Makeup Set 1 ~ D (Lavender with wine lipstick)
Hair: Bliss Hair, Yesenia Hair (Caviar)
Earrings: Finesmith Jewelry, Optimism Earrings
Prim Nails: CCD, Prim Nail Manicure (white)
Shoes: Adam n Eve Shoes, Paris Purple
Poses: Manifeste Poses

Hey everybody! I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas full of happiness and love. <3

A few days ago I saw Zaara's plurk about the Red Tag sale on the Marketplace and I knew I shouldn't miss it. I've been eyeing this skirt for a while and I finally bought it. I just love the different patterns and colors on it. I paired it with this turtleneck from which is 50L$ for a limited it (comes in other colors too). This hair is an oldie from Truth but still very awesome.

Here's a close up of the Glam Affair (Linn) skin since you can't see it very clearly in the other picture. It's a little darker from what I usually wear but heck, it's flipping gorgeous. I'm going to do a full review of this skin later on. I'm loving the skins Aida has been doing, they're all very beautiful and glam.

Before I take a week off…

In Second Life, Vent du Sud · Tags , , , ,
I have lost count of jobs coming in where the clients starts with 'I know you're away over Christmas but could you just...' these last two days.

So I have, meaning that this blog post may not be terribly coherent but two things.

No, three.

First, however, this is the winter - above is the  Christmassy set out at the Vent du Sud mainstore showing various colours (just click... there are about eleventy thousand combinations but thing burgundy and gold and green. Price? 1L each.

Here it is with some other 1L goodness, and out front?

Other things, some FREE. Baubles with snowflakes, mulled wine, etc. etc.

Next, if red isn't your thing, there are two other 2-prim carts out at the (still lacking-in-signage) NEW area beside the mainstore, also 1L.

I think that's it. Fashion? Ummmm... I took some photos in another outfit. I filed them. And I have forgotten what I called them. It will come to me shortly after takeoff, I expect.

Now, the challenge is to actually get on the plane, because (wouldn't you know it), there are strikes at our airport.… Read the rest

Can we say HELP? (But hey, Christmas stuff)

On 18th December 2011 · By ARIADNE KORDA · With Leave a comment
In Second Life, Vent du Sud · Tags , , , ,
Somehow, I got some Christmas stuff out.

Two places... the winter cabins and the  mainstore.

Above, the winter cabins. Read on... because a lot of the Christmas stuff is FREE. 


The idea was this MASSIVE MASSIVE publicity binge about how Vent du Sud did classy Christmas stuff and everybody would rush over and love it.

The reality?

Where do I start? Work arriving in ****loads, details like car window motor dying (while it was open, of course), and... getting sick of over my birthday last week.

No, I won't go on. I won't even scream about Lyon airport being closed because the security people are on strike and we are supposed to head on out on Wednesday. For a HOLIDAY (or vacation if you are across the Pond).

OK, I'll scream.

Look away, please. This is not a pretty sight.

But the Vent du Sud winter cabins ARE pretty and they are 50L each, small and larger. The lights? Not included but free and mod copy so just click and help yourself.

Grab the armchair, the firebowl, the fire basket, all for 1L.  Right here. 

ANYWAY, please do help yourself to some Christmas stuff - I shall blog about the smainstore goodies tomorrow but for today, I am in this sort of mood.… Read the rest

Addicted To Prefabs..

In Fae, Faun & Wardrobe, Fashion, Second Life · Tags ,

Hello! Just a quick post for you tonight before I run away to bed.. Indie Rose is closing at the end of the year. The entire store has been marked to 50% off and will remain until closing on the 1st. There are also some $1L Christmas presents scattered about the store for some extra treats. I grabbed a couple of things, my favorite being this rhinestone top.

I’ve mentioned it in the past but I have a strange (and strong) addiction to prefabs/buildings/décor/etc even though I don’t have a “home” set up in SL. The only thing I really use them for is studio photo sets. I can’t help it though, honestly! I see them, I buy them. Sometimes I end up disappointed.. today, I definitely was not! If I did the whole housekeeping thing here, I could easily see myself using this house. It’s a really cute, two story skybox/house from Honey I'm Home, up for grabs for Project Themeory this weekend and so worth going to get either for the sale event, or at regular price after the weekend is over.… Read the restDec 17 - Addiction to Prefabs 3
