[►] I haven’t been around much lately, but I have really missed blogging, so even tho my computer hates me…I’m making an effort to do it as much as I can. That said, please ignore the image quality if they’re crappy!
In other, more exciting news…Tomorrow is everybody’s favorite day of love and chocolate..so whether you hate to love it or love to hate it, do your best to enjoy it with someone or something you love.
[►] I’m sure most of you have heard about the 50 Shades of Sexy Blogger Challenge, but if you haven’t, that link will explain why you’ll being seeing a sexy picture from me once a week (hopefully!). I usually fail at both being sexy AND blogger challenges, but we’re gonna give it a shot.
Week one’s wantonly sexy theme is cotton candy. Cotton candy always makes me think -pink-..so this is what I came up with. I know, I know..there’s not a lot of clothes here..but that’s not entirely a bad thing, is it? I hope the rest of you bloggers will join the challenge, too! Have fun! <3
[►] I think my favorite piece of clothing in RL are my yoga pants. If you love them too, you should check out FaMESHed. You can grab these awesome sweats in several different colors from Cracked Mirror and these super cute pigtails from Wasabi Pills there! I have lots more to show you from this round of FaMESHed, so stay tuned. <3
[►] I’m in utter love with Leverocci’s new skin line. There are honestly so many tones and make up options that I can’t list them all here, but I highly recommend you go demo Cara, she is really lovely. While I was out shopping, like a lot of you, I imagine, I ended up at FAIR. I picked up a lot of stuff, but this adorable nook bed from Trompe Loeil is one of my favorites. It comes in several different colors and there is a PG version as well as an adult version. I’m loving FAIR. It’s just another great event from Ms Keira and the CHIC team. There’s lots to see, so take your booties over there and check it out! <3
[►] Disco, baby! At VF, I saw this adorable purple dress and had to have it. I so rarely wear gold, I wasn’t sure if I’d be able to put together an outfit, but I think I did it justice. You can really never go wrong with thigh high boots. This skin is one of 3 available from Izzie’s at Vintage Fair, alongside some super cute 80s gear, including the nails I’m wearing. I love banded hair, so this one from .ploom. was a pretty obvious choice for me! Happy shopping! <3
[►] If you’ve not yet made it to Vintage Fair, click one of the links below and go as soon as you can. Many of the items featured in this post can be found there exclusively for the duration of the event. When I saw this dress and, I had a plan for it immediately. I paired it with this /Wasabi Pills/ hair and SLink pumps, which can also be found at Vintage Fair and voila…torch light singer. <3
I wasn’t sure if I was gonna do this, basically because I totally forgot to do the first one, but I did it anyway. If you haven’t read Strawberry Singh’s “What’s Your Digits? – Take 2: The Mesh Revolution” post, I suggest you do. She brings up a lot of great points about mesh and how it’s evolving and how SL’s designers and consumers are rising to meet the challenges. Mesh technology is not yet perfect, but what is? It takes time for things to process and get the kinks worked out. The ladies (and gents, too) who put together the Standard Sizing survey have done an outstanding job. I’m in full support of them and their endeavors. And I won’t lie, in the beginning I wasn’t sure about Standard Sizing. I, too, questioned individuality in SL and how Standard Sizing could take that away, but I think you will all be able to see with everybody’s “digits” that we all continue to vary quite a bit. We’ve managed to retain the individuality that everyone was so worried about. Do we sometimes have to tweak our shapes? Yes. Do we look like completely different avatars if we move the slider a few points in one direction or another? Not from what I’ve seen. All that said, mesh has definitely changed the face of SL and will continue to do so. It’s only gonna get better with time. Hang in there folks!
[►] Blog post numero two-o…yeah ifail at Spanish. Anyway, isn’t this [Aura] dress the most beautiful dress? It’s so prettttty.
