Lurking In The Shadows.

Hello and happy hump day! Today I’ve got a few sneak peek goodies for you along with plenty of other new things you may not want to miss out on. Collabor88 just began and oyasumi released a retro set for this round. The record player is not only awesome decor for music lovers but it actually plays music as well. Fri.day is also participating in Collabor88 and has released these boots which have texture change laces, eyelets and socks and you can add a dash of blood splatter if you so wish. I’m also giving you a glimpse of the Skinnery’s newest arrival. Her name is Hazel and she’ll be available soon at The Seasons Story in 2 makeups and 3 skin tones. There’s still more to see below so I’ll leave you to the credits.

A Little Solitude Does Wonders.

I wanted to decorate a space that is a lot less girly than my usual and hopefully a place my husband might actually enjoy hanging out in. I’m using mostly new items from several different events going on at the moment. All items have a landmark listed below to the event where they’re currently available.

Music To My Mesh.

Okay so I’m ecstatic about physique, the new mesh body from Slink. Today I’m fully decked out in Mesh and I couldn’t be more happy about it. There’s still a lot of tweaking I’ve got to do with my mesh shape but it was definitely worth the price. Since introducing physique, the Skinnery released appliers for all tones, which I’m wearing below. Yay! I’ve also got quite a few more items available at the Rhapsody event. I thought these poses from Infiniti were perfect for both showing off my new body and my love of music. I could go on forever but instead I’ll just let you check it out for yourself. :)

Hair Fair 2014 Photo Contest.

I decided I’d enter a photo for this year’s Hair Fair photo contest. With the theme being music, I wanted to show I use music to express all of my feelings. Whether I’m feeling overjoyed, ecstatic, free, serene, tense or even heartbroken. I can find the perfect song to fit my mood. Music makes me feel the emotions I need to at that very moment and for that reason music is very much my therapy and I couldn’t live without it. If you would like to enter the Hair Fair photo contest, all of the information can be found here. For now I’ll leave you with this…

I’m sick of seeing you cry
And wasting all your time
On someone who will never care enough
To make you feel loved
To make you feel safe
I would drop my life to take his place.

My Man Went Shopping Without Me!

First of all, I hadn’t been on SL for a few days and I came back to my husband dressed normal for once! I guess I have to explain that. He loves his RP clothes and I agree they are pretty awesome and that’s his usual gear. So I suppose I was just a bit shocked. Anyway, I decided to give you a look of what he chose to wear and I quite dig it. He even bought Slink hands, FINALLY!

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!

The Howl Of The Winds.

Not that I don’t love every Collabor88 round but I LOVE this round! Other than BooN, I’ve not found any dreads that I’ve liked in SL. Well, Tableau Vivant made me so happy with this new release fatpack for only 188L. I’m hoping there are more dreadlock styles in the future. Secondly, I’m showing off new glitter eye shadow from adored bodyshop, the pack includes 5 colors and fits easily over any skin. Lastly,I noticed that Fishy Strawberry is closing it’s doors and couldn’t believe it, I’ve been shopping there for years. I picked up a few things because everything in the store is only 25L until the 14th. Enjoy your night!

Another Shoetopia Preview.

Only one more day until Shoetopia begins and I’ve got yet another sneak peek today. I’m wearing the first ever shoes created by Apple Fall, adorable winter boots in 5 textures. Since it’s been so warm here, I was wishing for a little bit of cold weather and thought this was the perfect time to show you the new releases from by Dorian. These cute little penguins are perfect for your winter decor and are only 1LI each with 7 unique penguins available. I have to say that dimwit is my favorite, he’s the silly one holding the sign.

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.
