Change is good, no?

So I changed my shape! OMFG. I received the Sayuri VIP group skin gift from Tuli, which has been blogged within an inch of its life but deserves it. I ‘liked’ it on my shape. I LOVE it on my new shape, yes, I more than tweaked my shape, I changed it significantly. It started with the &Bean skin, which I really really like, and I decided to make some changes for that skin. Then I decided to go further for the new Tuli skin. I like the result. Damnit now I’ll have to buy the fatpack! I am still working on my new releases. Unfortunately, my life has not been my own of late, so not a lot of time to build. But I was stuck in a hotel room with mediocre internet, so I decided to do a blog post. The outfit I put together today is all about the skirt. Lovely, kind of dreamy/floaty skirt from So Many Styles. The texture on the skirt is really just lovely, and the color combo of purple and yellow works for me. I paired the skirts with older Cupcakes tights and my J’s cowboy boots for fun. The tank is from Sprawl (what is the hiatus stuff? bah!). The jacket is from NINIKO, a lovely little shop with a lot of ‘open front’ jackets that are really well made. I could have put a denim jacket with this outfit for the same effect, but liked the NINIKO jacket too. Finally the hair is from fri.day, and I swear the hair from here just keeps getting better and better (yes, yes I want to be fri.day when I grow up….). The necklace is a fun little bargain you’ll find in the Dark Mouse Discount Shop in my store. And finally I added my full of flowers belt to the skirt, cause it’s um full of flowers. I’m trying to get back to normal life again, I’m hopeful that after this weekend, life will be better. Maybe after a bit I’ll be able to share, and maybe, help others who have been through a similar experience.

moving on

So I’ve been having a rough time of it in RL – really can’t talk about it, it’s too hard. I’m sorry for being gone for so long, but it’s been difficult to find the motivation to build, let alone blog. Moving on with life is such a tough thing. It’s what I’m desperately trying to do though. So here’s me, getting on with life.

I have some new stuff in the works – jewelry and hair – I’m rather just putzing along on it. I will get it done! Some of the new stuff represents some crazy ideas I’ve had in my head for a while, finally created and agonized over. AND a surprise. A big surprise and it involves some pretty exciting designers in Second Life. So be on the lookout!

I have had a bunch of stuff in my inventory for a bit, and some not that long, that I love. So I put it all together for the wildest look ever. The hair is a new style in progress, I call Alex – it sports a lovely jeweled flower headband. I hope to release it soon. I’m wearing an &Bean skin, a gorgeous group gift that I fell in love with – the eyeshadow is red. How this works I don’t know but it just does. Jewelry is all, of course Dark Mouse, but I piled it on a bit lavishly – why? Cause I have so much lol, that’s why. The camisole is the Grace Blouse from Lark, which is just scrumptious, seriously well made – take a close look at the texture on this top. Jeans are a new favorite pair of mine from Surf Couture paired with a the Bitty Bolero from Mischief (have you been there lately? why not? go, go now, I’m pretty sure there is sale). The bag is a 50L Friday steal from Treh Blah, the pret a porter bag, my own metallic belt and the fricken awesome boots (fringe!) from Duh!. The boots are just too cool and the price is so reasonable you’ll get all the colors. All in all a break the ARC bank look. I hope you liked it and I hope to be back soon with my new releases.

Not a life saving device, but happy egg hunting!

I think that I am continually amazed by the lovely creativity of designers in Second Life. I was doing the 50L Friday run through and arrived at Reek expecting something fun. I did not know how fun! I love, love, love the duck tube, and the ad copy, “Not a life saving device” pretty much clinched it for me, hehe. So just having fun at this point, I raced back to Surf Shack to pick up the bathing suit with the ruffles on the butt (must have) and the cute waist wrap. I accessorized with my own Julie hair (perfect for a day at the beach), and my own shell flower jewelry. Since my beach bag can be had for FREE at my Starlust location on Elliot for the Easter Egg hunt, and it fits with the theme, I thought I’d grab that too! I’m wearing my Elf curio skin in Pure (who has time for makeup when going to the beach???). Oh and I’m having just a wee bit o fun here with an emoter – FREE from Yadni’s Junk Yard! Next up, the pose fair OMG I can hardly wait but I have to RL work today, so that will have to wait till this evening! OMG the water is cooooooollllllddddd!!!!!
