It’s Gonna Be Cold!

Yesterday I was nominated by Kismet Faith to take upon the SL Ice Bucket Challenge and I accept! If you haven’t already seen others do this, I’d be a bit surprised. It’s gone viral in both RL and SL now and is helping raise awareness for ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis), also known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease. If nominated, you have the choice to either donate or take the challenge. Fashionowl has a cute and free ice-cube pose out for those willing to accept this challenge. We decided to take out the pool, turn the hoses on and have a little laugh. I’m going to nominate Lucie Bluebird-Lexington  and  Xaqueline Seda for this challenge. Ready, set, go!

My Pretty Babies.

The newest gacha event, Where the Wild Things Are, begins tomorrow and I’ve got another little preview for your ever-awaiting eyes. Since this event is all about the animals I thought I’d gather up some of my babies for a cute lil’ photo. I also wanted to mention I’m wearing one of the gacha skins from Enfant currently available at the Okinawa Summer Festival. This is slightly more “tan” tone and appliers have just been released at the main store for all your body parts. Keep Reading for more info and landmarks. Giddy-up Wombat!

Smooth Sailing.

The new round of Fit For A Princess begins today at 3pm and as soon as I saw this pose from an lar poses I knew it would be perfect for a family photo. The sailboat from tarte comes with 4 cute animations but I couldn’t pass up cuddling with my hubby. We asked our kitty Thao to come for a ride with us and were all more than happy to get a little sunshine and relaxation.

Meet Tiffani.

Meet Tiffani, the newest skin release from INSITU. I’m showing just a glimpse of what’s to offer with this skin. You can choose from five skin tones which all come with brown, brunette, red, blonde and no brow options. Not only that but she also has every applier, including the applier for the Slink Visage mesh heads available. There’s also a freckles tattoo option which I adore.

Blogger Challenge Raw.

I usually rely on Photoshop for minor edits of my photos. I decided to take on the Blogger Raw Challenge created by Lucie Bluebird which you can read more about here. First, I want to begin by saying my computer is far from great. I pump up my graphics to ultra and tweak a few options, only for photos or crashing is inevitable for me. Leaving this photo “as is” was extremely hard for me. I cringe at not being able to use my liquify tool but rough edges are a part of Second Life, I just hate them. From time to time I have problems with shadows depending on the viewer, windlight or mesh body parts. In the photo below Oculis’ hands are showing both the mesh and Second Life default hand shadows. Although there are some evident imperfections, I believe this tells the true, raw love I have with my SL and RL husband.

It’s All A Fantasy.

Tomorrow Fantasy Faire begins and runs through May 11th. Tonight I have a sneak peek of one of the items from Amilia Zabelta of AZE Jewelry designs. This lovely tiara inspired a purple look for me. She also has a few other items available including an earring and necklace set to match the tiara. Her Relay For Life item is a cute fairy type necklace with 100% of the proceeds to benefit this charity.

Home Is Wherever I’m With You.

The new poses from Luna Jubilee of !bang are so adorable. I knew I needed to use one of them, so I told my man about the new shirt and vests from Fatewear and we decided to cuddle up for a photo. I’m wearing a new skin from FAKE, her name is Autumn. As you know, I usually show you all the options of new skins but I simply don’t have  the time today. I’m wearing my favorite one below. She’s so cute with her ginger brows and freckles! You’re definitely not limited to a redhead though. There’s also brunette, blonde and no brow options that come in 5 tones along with Tango and hand appliers, plus 11 lipsticks. I’m sorry to cut this short but I’ve gotta finish packing. I’m flying to New Orleans tomorrow for my sister’s wedding! See you in a little over a week. <3

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.
