Lumiere

With the availability of the LeLutka heads, I might be blogging more accesoires because making close ups is so smooth and so much fun with them!
I picked Cae‘s Lumiere set today, because I love the casual but classy look that a lot of her jewelry has. Lumiere comes with a HUD to change the metals and the stones. I love that about her stuff. It makes combining with clothing and outfits so easy. There is a pattern here, I am all albout easy lately, must be because my RL is so demanding as of late.
Lumiere is available at The 100 Block and is 50% off during the event, which is still ongoing through April 30! The fit of Littlebones hair is pretty much hit or miss for me. Sometimes it’s great, other times it’s a mess and I can’t seem to get it right (duh, logically so, because it’s mostly rigged) . Tennis Court though fits like a charm, and I like it because it exposes one of the earrings, which is not always easy with longer hair styles. I am wearing LeLutka‘s Undivided Karin,which will be released in a couple of days, with Deetalez Heaven applier.… Read the rest

Karin, Stella & Lotte

Eyes by Ikon, hair by Dura   On April 30, LeLutka will release 3 new mesh heads, Karin (shown above) Stella (below) and Lotte (far below). When I received them last night, I wanted to play and take pics for hours, resulting in a upload flood on my flickr stream. They are so easy to work with and so pretty. Collar & septum ring by Yummy. Hair by Dura   With the way they react to various windlights, it’s really quite effortless to take pretty pics and we all like pretty pics, don’t we? In yesterday’s post, I already showed how different 1 head with 1 shape will look using different skin appliers, so I am not scared we’ll all end up looking alike! Hair by Argrace, headpiece by Bauhaus, eyes by Ikon   It’s only fair to do a side by side in the same light conditions, with the same eyes and the same hair, too. So there we go. No make up on any of these faces here, just the pretty base skin by Aida Ewing from Glam Affair. It’s only a couple more days waiting.… Read the rest

Variety

  I wanted to show you the same mesh head, and the same underlaying head shape with some of the different new skin appliers available since April 23, because the effect is quite dramatic. Just like when you wear another skin on your usual shape on the regular SL avatar they all look pretty different. I am wearing the upcoming Karin head from LeLutka’s Undivided here. Yes, I know I am a tease, but this new head is definitely my current favorite. From left to right, I am wearing it with Glam Affair (clean Ever, because Karin has yet to get her own base skin), YS&YS‘ Yvonne, Deetalez Heaven, Adam ‘n Eve‘s Chelsea and Izzie‘s Sophee, all no make up versions. Imagine when you start to mix and match the different make ups, because you can! Or, fiddle with the head sliders. Although the rigging  to the skeleton in the head is limited to affect only 2 sliders (head size and head stretch) the effects can be quite dramatic, as you can see in Sasy’s post here.… Read the rest

Hanging out on a Wednesday

This week’s release at ColdLogic has the prettiest dress!  Esper is a pretty little shift dress with a halter back and there goes a blouse over it, tied around the hips. The dress is shaded appropriately, so you need to wear it with the shirt, but I love it like that. I am wearing the dress with Fri.day‘s new Bailey loafers, out now at Kustom9.  Loafers like this remind me of the time that i used to sail fanatically. I loved in those shoes all season and the older they looked, the better it was! I am wearing Maitreya‘s Lara body which just had a minor update. When you wear it, the latest version will be sent to you automatically. I am also wearing LeLutka’s/Undivided’s Aria head with YS & YS‘ Ivonne skin applier and Glam Affair‘s candy lips. Tomorrow several skinners like YS&YS, Adam ‘n Eve and Izzie’s will release skin appliers for the Undivided heads, and I am so excited for it. We’ll have more options for customisation and the various make up elements are interchangeable!… Read the rest

The Temptress

For The Liaison Collaborative, Belleza made Eva, and what a tempting skin it is. The previcous couple of skins from Belleza didn’t really fit me, which is odd, because many claim that these skins all look the same to them.. but I kid you not, I wasn’t feelng the previous couple of skins on my shape. Eva on the contrary fits me like a glove again. While I tweak my shape all the time, when I have to tweak more for a skin than a bit of lip ratio and cleft, It’s not for me so to say and Eva just slipped on and felt ok! See below for all the beutiful make ups! Other need to knows: Hair: Olivia by EnVogue
Eyes: Promise by Ikon
Necklace: simple by Izzie’s
Dress: Windy T dress by Vincue

Over the dateline

I needed a title for this post, and Kavar from Exile usually picks cute names from song lyrics, so, Over the dateline it is! This hair is available at this month’s Collabor88 as is my Glam Affair Katra skin in the party edition. Quite the glamorous make ups, I must say. Love them all! Not only does Exile have 2 hairs out for C88, he released another 3 hairs last week! Pics below! My Dame dress is from the latest release of ColdLogic. I seriously adore that brand because of wearability. You never have to think if you look cute is you pick some of their stuff to wear. It’s maybe not the most exciting brand, but gosh, do I wear them a lot! The only reason I tend to slack on blogging them is that I suffer from option stress. Their releases are always so huge, that I never know what to pick and shoot for the blog and then I end up being distracted with other stuff and before youknow it, they have a new release out! Stop being so diligent, guys! (just kidding!)

Back in July, Belleza had a limited release for one of the Uber editions, but with such a gorgeous face, customers have been asking for a full release, so that is what happened the other week! Now available in all regular Belleza skin tones and 10 beautiful make ups! I am wearing Beth here with Truth’s latest release Effie and Cae’s Connected Collar.

ALL THE SKINS! (well… Glam Affair, Belleza and LeLutka’s soon to be released heads)

These awesome creators of SL! I cannot keep up with them. I feel horribly guilty for not having had the time (or made the time, it’s about priorities) to dedicate some time to Skin Fair and even the regular releases for my fave skinners come in too fast for me to stay on top! So I decided to combine a few in this post. It’s gonna be picture heavy! First there is Jia by Belleza for Uber. A face with a slightly slutry, Asian touch. With the usual Belleza sophistication and a very nice selection of lovely make ups!
Then we have Grazia, by Glam Affair for Uber
I am partial to this skin. How can I not be! Aida named it after me!! Grazia is (for now) available in America and Jamaica and comes with 8 stunning make ups! And then, last but not least, I would like your attention for the mesh heads that LeLutka will be releasing at the first of April. I will probably dedicate another post to these faces once they are out, because they are pretty brilliant.
Meet, from left to right: Aria, Leda and Ever.… Read the rest

Pure like driven snow

So much to blog, so little time!
It’s Sunday again, or rather, my Sunday is almost over! I thnk I should just give up any illusion of keeping up with new stuff and just go timeless…. what about that? Anywho, I managed to get into Kustom9 today, and grabbed this pretty Tie me up skirt by Le Primitif, and the matching V-neck crop top. I am wearing it with Nyu‘s Loose overcoat from Fameshed and SLink‘s Siren white pumps. At Skin Fair 2015, I got myself this gorgeous new Imogen skin by Imabee (see close up below). So pretty, no??
I decided for a short, sleek hairdo and ended up getting the Joe hair from Action. Male, yes, but who cares? The pretty Pendel string lights are from Keke at Kustom9

Black as midnight on a moonless night

When I learned last year that there will be a new Twin Peaks season, 25 years after the original series, I was so happy about it. Twin Peaks with all its dark and twisted turns in its plot has always been one of my favorites to watch. This month’s edition of C88 has pretty much a twin Peaks theme… “moonless night” which actually is part of a quote of Special agent Dale Cooper answering Pete Martell asking him how he takes his coffee. Cooper responds: “Black as midnight on a moonless night” My outfit is Black Lodge inspired, with the chevron Polo by The Secret Store and Tres Blah’s Vintage pencil skirt. I am also wearing Ingenue’s Laura pumps, as well as Yummy’s Twin Peaks charm necklace. The Log Lady glasses are also by Polyester Partridge from Yummy. My skin is Glam Affair’s Amberly in Jamaica for C88 and the Sherilyn hair is by Tableau Vivant. Please check below for all the make ups of Glam Affair’s Amberly and Alice skins for C88 this month

Sarouel

I’m usually not a big fan of harem pants or whatever you want to name them, because all too often they just look awkward and like you’re sporting a full diaper, but… as with everything, there are exceptions to the rule, and these Long Sarouel pants from Chronokit are just that.  I love them, especially in this oriental pattern.
I’m wearing it with a Tailored leather jacket also by Chronokit and I have accessorized it with Cae‘s new Sinuous necklace.
My shoes are the Gloria pumps by Volstead. I am also wearing Tableau Vivant beautiful Calliope hair, which is currently out at We <3 RP and my face is Alice, from Glam Affair. By the way, I am wearing all this over my Maitreya Lara body, which thanks to their alpha sections, is really my favorite body to wear right now.

Tight jeans and suede boots


I love this Natura jacket from ::K::  by Kitt Ragu (pet peeve: creators, please give your brand a real name. K or @#$%^ or other  ultra short, or full of special characters, names are very hard to find in search!!! I thought this was one of those abbreviations people do in their items when they box them … but this shop is actually called K. It confuses me, people… don’t do that to me!!
Anyway, the jacket (with shirt under it) is adorable and availabe both for women and men! I am wearing it with PIxicat‘s Klara jeans and Aphorism‘s leather ankle boots. They look like nubuck or suede to me though. Hence the title of this post! I am being lazy on Cheeky Pea‘s Nile bench which needs to be on your porch, really! My hair is Birdy, by Lamb, and my skin Alice by Glam Affair.

Live Long and Prosper

From the earliest moment I remember, Mr. Spock has been part of the things I used to see on TV. I’ll admit I was afraid as a little girl of the always stern and emotionless looking Vulcan, but he also equealed the Star Trek feeling for me. Going where no man has gone before.  Mind you, I think I was 4 at the time. Later Spock became for me a fount of wisdom and an inspiration and I’d like to share some of his most epic quotes with you: “one can begin to reshape the landscape with a single flower” “Change is the essential process of all existence.” “Logic clearly dictates that the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few.” and.. most adequate for today: “Every life comes to an end when time demands it. Loss of life is to be mourned, but only if the life was wasted.” Mr. Nimoy’s life was surely not wasted. He lived long and prospered, so to say. An inspiration to many. An Icon in SciFi cinematogaphy. He’ll be missed.… Read the rest

Hallelujah

More Uber stuff! It’s time for spring, I am fed up with this so called winter that has brought us barely any real winter weather, so lets soak up some sun, grab a guitar, kumbaya and make love not war! I am wearing Truth‘s Uber release Delphine, and put some flowers in my hair.
Also I picked up Zenith‘s Bohemian tie a knot long skirt, which is really a dress. It fits pretty great with my Maitreya Lara body. From Collabor88 I used the Jesus is Lord sign from 7. I’m not religious and 7‘s signs usually crack me up. My guitar is from Tartessos arts, and I adjusted wearing it to fit the pose from Frozen‘s Guitar series.

Uber Boho

Oh come on.. it only took me 1.5 hours of continuous tp-ing, before i made it into Uber. On the first day. That ain’t oo bad, no? /me facepalms But so worth it!! Look at this Delilah bed room from Cheeky Pea!! If all the blossoms are a bit much for you, there is a more demure “earth”edition as well! Available in both PG and Adult because  oh well, we’re all perverts I am wearing League‘s contribution to this edition of Uber, the Ananda outfit, with the Ananda scarf. Matched with Maxi Gossamer‘s Violette Cut Bead Boho, which comes texture change.
This pretty Willow hair which comes with hair beads is from Olive and also part of this month’s Uber.
Barely visible, but so good with this outfit, I am wearing BOOM‘s Tired sole sandal which is an old Collabor88 item, and most likely available in the mainstore now and last but not least, I indulged myself and got another Skinnery skin, Blair, which is the newest in store.… Read the rest

Antique

This gorgeous sexy Antique gown by Dead Dollz is out at The Fantasy Collective right now. Yes, it leaves the boobs uncovered.  I like my boobs, what can I say. If you don’t like yours… then you might want to pick out some gorgeous lingerie or a body suit to wear under it.  I’ll leave that up to your imagination. Because of the beautiful details on the gown, I decided to keep accessoires simple. I am weaing Yummy‘s  Embellished key necklace which is currently out at Collabor88. Some modesty is maintained with the choice of LeLutka‘s Kayla hair and some contrast I have created by picking Glam Affair‘s Alice skin no, 4 from the Shiny Shabby edition, because of the beautiful blood red lips. The background consists of several of Anc‘s Printroll screens, also from Shiny Shabby.

NSFW: contemplation


I picked up this Pulley lounger by Revival at Shiny Shabby and fell in love with it. Or vice versa… nah.. i think i bought it first and fell in love with it later. It’s such a lovely addition to any living room or patio.
Also from Shiny Shabby I am wearing Glam Affair‘s Alice skin and nothing else really. Regular store release at Truth‘s is the amazing and drop dead sexy Avena hair.

ethereal

Cae has this gorgeous Ethereal “backlace”out for Seraphim Social. Isn’t it gorgeous?
I love backlaces and I own a few of them in SL but it’s never enough, so creators of SL… make them more often!!! I am wearing it on Indyra Originals‘ Lourdes dress, which I have had for a while now, but the super low back is perfect to combine with a backlace like Ethereal. I am also wearing Amacci‘s knot, which is a super simple updo, worn with a hair base, but I felt like something more complex would take away the attention of Ethereal. That’s pretty much it for today. I don’t remember the skin I was wearing here, since I took the pic a couple of days ago and I forgot to save the outfit, but I love the back and detail of the spine.

NSFW ahead. Fair warning! Last week I decided it was finally time to use one of Rack’s awesome adult poses to do a much due pic with my fellow Dutch blogger Caitlin Tobias. We had been talking about doing pics together for weeks, if not months, but even when you are on the same timezone, it’s not always easy to make time to get together and actually get it on so to speak. What we’re wearing you ask? hmmm… you may want to get new glasses The pose is The Hot Wrap by Rack, though, and the Amelia cabin is Trompe l’Oeil‘s contribution to this month’s Collabor88!
