So Many December Events!

I’ve waited a few weeks now to really start decorating my winter home. I had a feeling all the new goodies starting this December would make it worthwhile to wait. I was so excited to score the rare bed from Olive! I just knew the bedroom was next on my list to decorate. Almost all the items below are either from The Arcade, Four Walls Hunt or Geeks’n'Nerds. Keep reading for more details.

New Eyeshadow From Adored Bodyshop.

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.

Paint Me a Picture.

I’m not usually one that blogs shapes but the new skin and shape from The Skinnery for Designers United is so adorable I had to wear both. Zyra comes in 4 makeups, 3 tones and a color changing dripping paint makeup. I’m going to show you the makeups available in the champagne tone below along with some more cuteness from The Seasons Story. <3

HANDverk Arcade Preview.

I’ve got another preview for The Arcade Gacha Event from Daphne Klossovsky of HANDverk. She’s created 30 different styles of clogs with 5 rares up for grabs. All come with male and female versions. The pose I chose to use is from Luna Jubilee of !bang which is new at Poser Pavillion. I thought it was perfect for showing off the detail of these clogs.

The Balance In Our Thoughts.

The new round of The Boutique began July 15th and runs through August 10th. Daphne Klossovsky of [HANDverk] is one of the designers participating. I was thrilled to see these delicate elephant earrings in 5 “safari-tastic” colors. (Oh I just love that word.) I’m also sporting yet another beautiful hair from ISON available at the Hair Fair. The HUD I purchased includes solids, ombres and dip-dyes. The hair pin is also color change via HUD.

Shade Me From Those Warm Sunny Days.

Most people use umbrellas for the downpours. Living in Southern California, I see there’s just a need for shade. Today I put together a new Kawaii Fair and Bees Through The Seasons look for you, inspired by this thought. Hope you enjoy. :D

I loved that both Daphne Klossovsky and Tobias Convair  worked so closely together to create such an imaginative and once again flawless collection. There’s also a rare display case up for grabs that’s perfect for showing off all of your relics. All items are 1LI except for the case, which is only 2LI. I bet you’re all excited now!

Finding Freedom.

I’m sure by now you’ve heard of Global Domination. Well, there are some fabulous prizes for the tiny 400L fee. Plus it’s a fun game! How can you go wrong? You can find all the details here. Once I saw HANDverk’s mask I knew I had to make something of it. Masks have so much meaning to me. Her work is amazing and I admire this so much. Thank you Daphne.

Let’s Kiss.

I almost feel brand new to this blogging deal it’s been so long. I’ve had a pretty rough month. I won’t go into all the details but I’ve spent a bit of time in the hospital and I’m taking it slow now. I truly do miss blogging and I feel bad that I can’t keep up with everything all the wonderful designers, who support me, are so generously giving me. But, I must take care of myself right now. This doesn’t mean I’m not blogging anymore, it simply means I’m going to be a bit slow, at least for now. :)
