Skin Fair 2014 begins on March 14th. This is the largest Skin fair to date and not only includes skin designers but makeup designers as well. I’ve got a sneak peek of Filthy’s skin Chloe, for the upcoming event. She comes in six tones with several combinations of eyeshadows, eyeliners, lipsticks, freckles, cleavage and even a cute little mole. There’s also appliers for Slink hands and feet, Lolas, and Phat Azz. If you’re a skin lover like me you better start saving your lindens!
The new round of The Fantasy Collective begins February 20th and the theme this time is Arabian nights. I adore the detail of this head scarf which is available in several color combinations. The one thing I suggest is wearing the alpha it came with plus an additional hair alpha. This was made to fit the ruth shaped head so you may have some troubles since this is a no mod item. With the two alphas, mine fit perfectly.
Christmas on SL can be so fun. Designers are extremely generous with gifts. I was hoping to get the Inspiration Point hunt completed before I left on vacation and I was able to do that yesterday. The Secret Store, Tee*fy, House of Fox and Kirin have set out multiple presents and each and everyone is worth the time to hunt it down. When you tp in, click the sign for a folder containing a map HUD to each little Christmas tree you’re looking for and that’s all there is to it!
I was loving on my new animal friends that I couldn’t pass up showing them off. Since my hubby loves bears so much I gave him my cute lil polar bear avatar to strike a pose with me. All I can say is OMG Cuteness! The AO with this bear is simply adorable. Every one of the new arctic friends are so fun, there’s several options which are explained in the lovely picture book HUD. These are worth the 50L a play and I was lucky enough to get two rare owls in a row! I’m also adoring another 50L gacha item from Half Deer. Seven unique yaks perfect for your winter decor. I’m sure I’ll be playing this machine a bit more because who doesn’t need more yaks? :p

We <3 RP just began yesterday and I’m showing off the new antler pauldrons from ieQED. The antlers have 4 metals to choose from, titanium, platium, gold and rose all include black and brown versions. The textures blow me away as usual and are 25% off for this round! I’m also wearing one of the new hairs from ARGRACE. I’ve been wanting this hair since I first saw it because it’s perfect for photos plus it comes with 5 poses to show it off.

It’s been a dreary and cold day here and I’ve spent all afternoon listening to The National. I did, however, want to show you a few new pretties. FAKE has released a new skin line named India. She comes in 8 tones with ginger, brunette or blonde brows and 5 makeups. Also available are Slink hand and feet appliers, Lolas appliers and Phat Azz appliers. Below I’m showing off the Ginger brows with freckles but please continue reading because I’ve got quite a few photos today. I’m also wearing fri. boots which have become my new favorite pair of lace-up boots. I love the slight wedge heel, I’d definitely wear them in RL. These are available now at Shoetopia.
By now I’m sure you’ve noticed that I love blogging skins and all the makeup that go along with them but it’s very rare that I actually like wearing add-on makeup from other designers. I usually feel that no matter which ones I try they never seem to go with the skin I want to wear or they just look a bit off. Well, Constance Daehlie has a little marketplace shop called Adored Bodyshop. I bought a few eyeshadows a while back and fell in love with them. Not only do they go with all the skins I’ve tried using them with but the colors are vibrant and simply well done. Below I’m showing all 10 of her newest shadows, Glissinin.

I’m kinda in love with the doll skins from My Uglydorothy. If you’ve been to Designers United I’m sure you’ve seen it. There are 3 versions of doll skins, Pretty Doll, Baby Doll and Ugly Doll. Each skin has brow or no brow option and 5 makeups to chose from. There’s also an adorable, modifiable doll shape for each version which seems to fit an xxs in mesh with a few minor adjustments. Below I’ve included close-ups of the Pretty Doll makeups.

I know everyone is getting so excited for the new Arcade round that begins in only 5 days and today I have a little sneak peek of what The Skinnery will have for your gacha pleasure. Her name is Alice and there’s going to be a total of 12 skins to win! There are 6 makeups in both the champagne and toffee tones and 2 rares in a natural look, which is what I’m wearing below. I had to make sure you got a good look at all of them so I also took some non-edited pics of all the makeups for you to see!
