Does it almost feel like you have been here before

Dear SL

Just a quick post today as I don't have much time due to RL obligations, I am sure we all know how that is.

Blog look #30

Hair: [LeLutka] - MOURRAY hair - Bournville - (Its sculpt hair but up do so very much still one my faves.)
Earrings: LaGyo - Wishbone earring - silver
Cuff: erratic - cuff - silver
Shirt: erratic - amy - silk blouse - white
Shorts: (fd) - Scallop Shorts - Grey - (Old C88 item, Check store.)
Shoes: Slink - Ilena Sandals - White - (Make sure you have or get the Slink Bare Feet.)

This look today is a relaxed, Summer feel and something you would feel comfortable in all day long.
I know this look is simple and there isn't that much to it but sometimes the most simple things are the most striking.

I am showcasing the Erratic store this post, Erratic Rain does such a good job at making adorable mesh clothing. The shirt I have on is one that could be worn with any combination of outfits.

My SL sister Abby introduces me to some music that to my surprise is something I really liked.

There is no one else to blame

Dear SL

Today I have a spoilt rock princess that remind me of those celebrity socialites. You know the ones I mean.
This outfit includes the old with the new.

Blog look #29

Hair: >TRUTH< - Crys - mocha
Crown: Old hunt object - But I am sure there are black crowns elsewhere on the grid. Sorry N/A.
Glasses: Solar Eyewear - Castor - (Lots of Hud options, Including colour of lens and frames.)
Earrings: (Caroline's) - Black Pearl Earring - (Marketplace.)
Ring: RO - FAMOUS Ring - Black - (Marketplace.)
Cuff: (epoque.s) - Cage Cuff - Obsidian
Nails: Izzie's - French Nails
Shirt: erratic - mindy - tshirt awkward - black - (This comes in Black version and White version in one.)
Under Shirt: Jane - intrinsic tank - Black - raven (Free basic texture shirt.)
Pants: .:villena:. - skinny jeans - G2
Shoes: 2Real Footwear - STACKZ SHOES

I have decided to change my layout of my posts around a little, So I ramble at the end.
I think its important to have some writing, Not just because I like to ramble.
But because I hope its informing and gives my blog personality.

The outfit today has a NEW item by Erratic, This shirt has great real feel to it with the textures helping to create a creased and folded feeling of it being tucked into the jeans.

And if you like a bit of industrial flare to your fashion look no further than Remarkable Oblivion, I own a few items from this store and I am never disappointed with the amazing craftsmanship.
The ring shown on this post is a an example of such a item to be had.

As I have a rock type vibe to this post I am going to leave you with a Alt rock song that inspires me to get an outfit like this on in RL and head out into the night.

I can see the skies are changing

Dear SL...

Like most girls in SL, I like to add bits and pieces that make my Av mine.
Let me explain...
Although I love the skins that I wear, Sometimes I feel they are to perfect and personally I like those little imperfections that RL has.
This is the reason I like adding dimples, Freckles and moles layers to my skins.

I am sure I am not alone in this and well I want to tell you about a very exciting discovery.
My ever so talented SL sister Niki Elan has started a store called Blank Static and have released her first set of freckles, freckles and moles on the tattoo layer.
They are to die for and well like I have said above, They just add that little bit extra to your look.

If by any chance you don't know who Niki Elan is than you need to check out her blog. HERE.
As of yet Niki doesn't have a in-world store but can be found on marketplace.

And if you were curious what they look like, Wait no long for we all know that curiosity killed the cat.

This one has moles and freckles and includes the body.

This one is just moles and is on the face.

That is all for now ... but now as always I have some mood music for you.

As you can see from the pictures below she brings that little bit of colour to my other wise mostly black and white SLife.

The pose used in this post is from CnS e-motion and available at the latest round of Gemini Zodiac.
This is an amazing event that I personally always manage to find a few things that my inventory must have.

Speaking of great events the perfect wardrobe has just opened and has a very sexy theme style to it, If your pixels need some sexy flare or just like the feel of the lace upon those pixels this is the round for you.

I would rather stay awake when I am asleep

Dear SL...

I like to sometimes reuse bits and pieces to make different looks.
Because there are so many amazing designers creating things everyday, Its is easy to buy things and wear them for one day or even a few hours before you have to have something else that was just released.
But it not only leads to a over flowing inventory, A very broke linden bank and well to me it seems a waste to only show off items that have taken the creators so much thought.

So in the spirit of this notion, I present to you today ... A look that I have used bits of before but is a completely different look.

Blog look #28

Hair: (Chemistry) - HAIR - Bubbles - Browns - (Comes with bangs separate from hair in two styles.)
Glasses: [tea.s] - Lips Glasses
Necklace: [tea.s] - Little heart necklace - Silver
Ring: [tea.s] - Chewnicorn Ring - Turqoise
Tongue: Ohmai - Emporium: Every Flavored Bean - (Rainbow) - (In gotcha a while ago, Check with owner, Unable to find current link to store.)
Shirt: Chemistry - Echo Tank Top - (shirt) - Lace White - (Comes in Crop, Shirt and Full.)
Under Shirt: Jane - intrinsic.tank.wh - milk (Free - Textured basic shirt.)
Pants: Blueberry - Alexa *Mesh* Cut-Out Jeans
Shoes: Slink - Ilena Sandals - White - (Make sure you get the bare feet they are a must as these are add ons.)

I also have wings on to complete the look but I didn't include a picture with it, So you will have to just take my word for it. Here are the details for it anyways.
*BOOM* - Aranel's Wings (flared) - white

This post was rather short but I am sure you enjoyed it for a change.
Leaving you with a song I love and most well probably know because it was impossible not to love.

In a war between many

Dear SL...

Sometime in all of the choices within SL, It is just nice to dress casual.
Its seems this outfit has that description and it also seems like I have a real thing for animal themed outfits of late because this one has a cat.

I don't have much to ramble on about at this point, So I will get on with telling you the featuring designers that made this outfit possible and than you can ogle the picture to decide for your self what you think of it.

Chemistry is a small store but is full of great items that are a must have. I pretty much own everything there which includes hair and clothes. They don't release often but when they do it is well worth the lindens.

Elate! is another small store that has a lot of knick knacks that are great to have, For example the bow I have on in this outfit, It is my go to.

And last but not least is Villena, This store is funky, Fresh and a must visit for both women and men.
Most things in this store are unisex and well fitting.

Blog look #27

Hair: TRUTH - Abra - Browns - New!
Bow: (Elate!) - Silk Bow Headband - (Colour change.)
Sweater: Chemistry - ZOE SWEATER SHIRT - (Sweater) - Meow ( Has Tucked, Sweater or Untucked.)
Under Shirt: Jane - intrinsic.tank - Black - (Basic textured shirt that is FREE!)
Pants: .:villena:. - tucked up jeans - Black
Shoes: Fri. - Basic.Flats - Black

Doing my part to share the Australian music I am again promoting one of my favourite bands Birds Of Tokyo who have just released a new album.

The stars are all exploding

Dear SL...

Going from dark to light, You all must think I can't make up my mind.
Often with my style I go with how I feel that day, No that does not mean most the time I am in a dark mood. It just means that is how I feel like looking.

I try to keep my pictures clean and nice, Without editing to much.
My aim is to have my blog as a " What you see is what you get", So the items you see pictured you would get if you got the items within SL.
I do still edit them but its to fix up angles and such.
So I hope that by doing this I am helping you see the items that the designers work so hard to create.

On that note I am featuring much loved designers:

Zenith - This label always surprise me, They come out with are fun and well made items.

U.F.O - This is no secret that I hold a very special place in my heart, This store embodies what I feel my Av is... Cute and sweet. Apart from me telling you it is a must see store.
Do not be surprised that you will see items from this store featured a fair bit in the near future, Especially the cute animal head bands. (Gotcha item... needed them all.)

Due is a new hair store for me and one I would love to see more come from.
While I do think the store has a little ways to go as fair as smoothing out the finer issues like small gaps within the style, It is exciting to see what might come from them in the future.
If it is anything to go on the styles like the one below, They will have my linden in their pockets.

Blog look #26

Hair: [Due] - Anna - Dark brown - @ The Box - (Check store as it is an old the box item.)
Headband: ::{u.f.o}::- animal wire headband - silver - bear - (Gotcha item in store.)
Romper: =Zenith= - (Milke) - Zipped Rompers
Tights: Gawk! - White Nylon Tights - Perforated B
Shoes: Slink - Ilena Sandals - Taupe - (Slink Bare Feet needed.)

The song I have for you now is one that I feel is so pretty and makes my heart sing.
The singer is an Australian girl, So it may not be very well known, But please check it out.

Dancing under the skies of lust

Dear SL...

Today's look is getting back to my dark cool side.
As you know I don't do to much colour but I am trying.
In RL and SL however I tend to gravitate towards the darker range, Esp black.
So if like me you find it hard to push your boundaries, This post is dedicated to you.

This look I have been holding onto for a while, But its time to show it off and see what you all think.
Featured in this post are the designers:
Fruk - This brand to me is a new one and one that I am glad that came to my attention.
It is really nice mesh work, This store also offers skins that I would say check out if you are a guy or a girl who has a guy that needs a make over. Please check this store out, You won't be disappointed.

Glow studio is always a go to store for me when it comes to those little accessories that really make a outfit pop. They have a large range of unique items and at a very modest price.

Blog look #25

Hair: >TRUTH< - Elisha -  Dark Browns
Glasses: [ glow ] studio - Video Clip Shades - Black
Necklace: [tea.s] - Little heart necklace - Black - (In Process of moving.)
Ring: ..:: BenS Beauty ::.. - Pyramid Ring - Black & Gold
Tattoo: -UtopiaH- - Bang! Bang! Tattoo - (On Hips and comes with piercing.)
Shirt: (Chemistry) - Echo Tank Top - (shirt) - Banded Sheer - (Comes in Shirt, Full and Crop in one.)
Pants: Fruk - BioTech Pants - Black - (Comes with suspenders)
Shoes: N-core - COQUETTE Spikes - Black - (One my fave heels.)

I loved this look so much I had to take a picture for my profile, Here is the result.

The song I am leaving you with today was brought to my attention by my SL mum, Rudhmellowen Laguna.
She is amazing, Unique and talented blogger.
Someone who for me and I am sure for a lot of others that have the pleasure of knowing her, Makes SL worth logging on for.

Like I'm made of glass

Dear SL...

 I have returned... miss me?
To celebrate my coming back, I have a completely cute outfit.
When I made this outfit, It just made me "Awww" inside.
I haven't taken this outfit off for days and days and even now that I have after blogging this.
I just want to go back to it, This outfit defiantly goes into my top 10 favourite outfits of my SL wardrobe.

I want to highlight the featured designers for this post, They are:
Truth, This designer is well known and has been around a long time now, But they continue to change and bring refreshing hair styles to the SL grid.
The newest hair styles did not, I personally could not go pass the rounded bangs ones that included Lotus. This hair seemed to be made for my av and frames the face amazing.
Not only this but with a new store and a new outlook on colour packs that come with fades, This is sure to remain a popular destination for hair.

H.O.F is another great designer in SL, Maybe not so well known but is a well loved brand by me.
With the top featured in this post it was to cute to pass up.
However I do have one issue and that is that while it looks great, It sometimes "Breaks" just above the boob area on one side when moving with my AO.
However despite this, I love it to much not to wear it. For me it is forgivable.

So without any more talk I just have one last sentence to sum it up... Meow says the Shiny Bubble.

Blog look # 24

Hair: TRUTH - Lotus - Browns04
Headband: ::{u.f.o}:: - animal wire headband - silverdia - cat - (Gotcha item within the store.)
Whiskers: *Epic* - Colorable Whiskers! - (Modified to make shorter.)
Ring: MONS - Ring - Cat family - Cooper
Shirt: Color.Me.H.O.F - Mesh Basic Tank - [White] - @FeMeshed
Shorts: {mon tissu} - Tulip Shorts - Black
Stockings: "Jim" - Kitten Stockings - (On marketplace)
Shoes: ISON - studded girl panic boots - Black

Time for this kitty to go get a drink and some snacks cause she has been a very busy kitty.

Hey! Teacher! Leave them kids alone!

Dear SL...

I am not sure what inspired this look today.
I had a look around the 50L Friday out recently and it continues to be one of my favourite events.
It continues to have awesome designers and great quality items.
And while I like the rest of us, Shopping addicts in SL love a good bargain.
But I do realise that for it to exist, it means a lot of hard work and unique ideas to go into the items.
It is amazing to me that the designers involved find it in their heart to make SL a better place by continuing to be apart of such an event, with what seems less of a gain than we get.

But i would like to now in this post send a big hug and love to all those involved on behalf of anyone who has ever brought anything from FLF. Thank you.

Now I have seen to that today's outfit contains a cute dress from FLF designed by the secret store, Paired with a pair of Slink shoes and its just to cute to comment.
And while wearing this around a man friend of mine, Yes I said man friend because that is what he is.
Well he told me I looked like a teacher...I just hope its in a good way.

So here it is my "Teacher" look.

Best days of my life

Dear SL...

I am going to attempt to blog quiet a few times, Today and tomorrow.
The reason behind this is because in a couple of days, I will be travelling away for a little and you will have to fend for yourself in the world of fashion.

But before that happens, I am going to do my best to inspire you for the week to come.
In fact I make it my mission and should I fail in my mission than I will be back after my travels with tales of wonder. *salutes*

I noticed its hard to find nice mesh bikini's without it looking like you are wearing a diaper, So I brought and tried a few of them before I came across the beautifully crafted pair from G*field.
What are you waiting for, Get those pixel bodies ready and go have some fun in the sun.
After all you worked had on those sliders for that body.

This look both makes me feel sad and such because I am in Australia.

It is finally clear

Dear SL...

Hi all, Sorry again I am chasing my own tail in RL, Therefore my blogging suffers but I do have some great up coming posts for you all to drool over.
Just remember to wipe the keyboard when you are done.
And once you have finished drooling you can take the lovely provided LM's to gather up these looks yourself.

OK so in this post are the mush loved and featured designers LOQ and Chemistry.
They brought out the hair Sherry which was a must have for me and should be for you to!
It has a colour change hair band and is one of the nicest up-do hairstyles to come out in a while.

As for Chemistry, This is a little cute store full of amazing things.
Everything in the store should be a MUST have for every pixel girl.

It is always good to change things up and find new styles and this is what I did with this outfit today...So I really hope you fall in love with it as much as I did.

Song of the day for me is:

This song is just beautiful in its lyrics and sound. Gives me hope.
