Colorblind

2009-08-25T17:38:21.034-05:00

Your going to have to excuse the following post, seems I have temporarily gone colorblind, therefore none of the following outfits will make any sense and leave you saying 'WTF'. But to me, I look just as glamorous as ever. But how could I not? Have you seen some of the new stuff at the blackmarket? F a b u l o u s .Take for instance these beautiful skins from *!t. This was my first time ever seeing the owner December Larkham's fabulous skins. I'm a big sucker for unique makeup and December has a awesome selection of unique eyeshadows to choose from. Her skins are $L800 usually, but at the blackmarket you can get her super unique, super cute skins for a bargin at only $L150! It's almost unheard of! You can take a direct tp to her stall at the blackmarket: here.What else can you find at blackmarket? Well, how does adorable exclusive blackmarket tattoos from Duboo* for a meer $L80 sound? Owner Newreem Waffle is not only one of the sweetest people you will ever meet, but is also one of the most talanted. Her store Duboo* also has some of the best cute shirts you can find, and very cheap! All her items are very resonably priced, and your sure to find something you'll like. (She even has male shirts!)Another new store to me was beetlebones but boy am I glad I found it! beetlebones has some of the cutest clothing i've seen, and her exclusive blackmarket stuff is no exception. You'll have to check it out and see for yourself, but I did feature a bunch of owner suetabulous Yootz's stuff today.Last but not least, the widely blogged about !O freebie hair for blackmarket. Owner Anya Ohmai is seriously climbing up her way the sl fashion scene. Not only is she one of the most amazing bloggers, cutest avie cupcake, funny gumdrup, but she also makes clothes now?What can this girl not do?! (Btw, Anya.. I'm sorry for quoting everything you say. Your just so darn cute *pinches your cheeks*)Another cosmo tip for you guys today, enjoy! :)Deebo* Tattoos @ Blackmarket! :DCosmo Tip 3: Don't match your shoes and belt...but keep them in the same color family.Hair: Emma Blone by Atomic Skin: Alli underwater forest in medium by *!t ($L150 @ Blackmarket!)

May!

2009-08-24T15:04:25.883-05:00

*Squeels* No, that's not a balloon i'm holding, that's a giant lollipop! and while that makes me happy, so does these skins I discovered today while visiting the happy shop which is full of cheap knick knacks and cutesy jewlery. Connected to this adorable store, was I dare to say one of my new favorite skin stores. May is a adorable shop with the cutest skins i've seen in a long time. After getting several fat packs I imed my friend Beanie of 'Beanie loves Japan' and was shocked to find out even she didn't know of this store. I had thought this store to be japanese, but after Beanie tped in and was stunned to find such cute skins that she herself had never heard about.. did some snooping around and found out that owner fay magic is actually chinese. Apparently, this was a very rare find. Chinese creators are very rare in SL, as the goverment has blocked internet acess over there. So there's only a handful of these creators online and expecially in SL. Fay has a good handful of skins, and all of them are adorable. I really love the kissable, juicy lips on them! It seems not a lot of people know of May, and i'm telling you all now.. you are missing out! I don't get excited over stores much, but this store really tickled my cute bone. Skins come in 3 makeup packs, and include a shape for only $2,000!I paired these cute skins with this adorable summer dress from Shiki. Who happends to be a japanese designer with lots of great designs as well.Take a look at the newest release 'Amy' that was released today, and whatever you do.. Take a trip to may! Trust me, it's so worth it!Amy 'C' (Look at those lips!!)Skin: Amy C by MayHair: Lovely Girl Normal by JunwaveEyelashes: Rendezvous by RGDress: Summer Dress Sunshine by ShikiSocks: Square Madness Socks in orange (free) by DjunkShoes: Dare pumps in lime by STBackground Goodies: Magic candy & Baby sweets ($L10!) by Happy shopTp to: May[...]



Do you wanna date my avatar?

2009-08-24T13:05:49.110-05:00

So what is it guys find hot? Do they really like the dolled up, perfect makeup, flawless outfit, fake nails and the plumping lip gloss? or do guys prefer the girl who can look awesome in a pair of sweats, there oversized t-shirts, and a 'I just got out of bed' hairstyle? Do guys prefer the smell of some overpowering chanel perfume, or the scent of the girl he loves shampoo when he hugs her? In SL, you don't have to try hard to make your avatar look flawless and glamorous at any given notice. She nevers gets bloated, always fits into her skinny jeans, her hair is never out of place, and her makeup lasts for days. Yet, even in sl.. we can find ways to be lazy, to make it look like we don't really care, even if we spend hours putting together an outfit to make it look that way. What's honestly sexy to men? The girl who can throw on a pair of jeans and a tank top and look goregous, or a girl who takes triple the amount of time to get ready and looks just as good as the other girl.. Meh, i'm not good at this whole dating thing. But sometimes I find it sexier to just be yourself then putting on a show, even in sl.. Perfection, at least in my eyes will never exist. That includes your sl avie. There will always be that prim that isn't exactly the way it should be, always be that eyelash that can never look good at all angels.. what's really beautiful, is the person behind the avatar.. the person who made the avatar look like that. I was asked what I incorperate into my sl fashion from my rl fashion.. the answer? Everything. Everytime I make a purchase, everytime i wear something. It reflects something about me, how I want to be represented, how I feel, how I want to look at this moment in time. Yes, i'm the first one to want to be dolled up, but I love dressing down, to dress myself up as well. Such little efforts, make such big differences. In sl, you can be anyone you want to be.. only.. I choose to be me.So, I don't know boys, do you wanna date my avatar?Do you wanna date my avatar?Theme: Dressing Down/Cosmo tip 2Rule 2: Flaunt one stretch of skin at a time.Skin: Mary Skin ($L1!) by Mother GooseHair: A in Brown A by MagikaTop: Sheer ribon tank (Navy) by ArmidiJacket: Plaid Winter Sweater by GCShorts: Shorts white by DCShoes: Unisex classic Moccas [Lt Brown] by Armidi(Watch this video.

This is the new logo for Vive9's new upcoming skins.
'Unnatural beauty' really fits vive9 in my opinion. I've been a v9 addict for quite some time now as you can tell by the amount of posts where i'm wearing vive9 skins. I could go on and on about how much I love vive9, but I have a exciting release to talk about! A long with the logo, V9 has announced a new skin coming out '
Maya'. Being the vive9aholic I am, I was thrilled at the news of a new release. Here's a sneak peak at the skin!

My SL has been having a lot of issues lately.. Just got my studio back up, should be posting what I have promised to post in the next coming posts.. I wanted to share my current outfit, however.
I was feeling a bit down, and wanted to create something emotional.. I put together this outfit featuring this jacket from Ohmai.. We all know her and love her, and now she's making clothing too. She put out four preview colors of this jacket, and all are equally beautiful. I can't wait to see her final store, lots of good stuff coming our way. Haven't done a 30 days of summer post for a while, so here it is.

That Rocks!

(image) *Click picture to enlarge*

That Rocks! is a brand new store featuring unique, excellent tattoos. I'm not much of a tattoo wearer myself, but when I took a look at the colorful cute tats, I couldn't resist but wearing them. The tattoos themselves are of good quality.. and the designs are unique, and stunning. My favorite tattoos are the three featured above. 'Doodles' 'Geisha's Revenge' and 'Angels and Demons' tattoos. That Rocks also has a variety of clothing and neko items and owner Angeliq Littlething even does custom tattoo requests. How cool is that? All and all, if you take a trip to That Rocks it will be easy to see why it's called that.. It Rocks! ^^

The VIP Pre-Party was awesome. Atomic really went out of there way, and I was honored to have gotten that invite. They were really generous with the gifts, there was two whole stands of free goodies.. Even some exclusive VIP gifts including the Roxxie hair i'm wearing above, and a exclusive grace skin makeup.

Murder on the Dancefloor

(image) Apologies. Sl has been giving me problems lately, also real life has been interfering with my blogging. However, I will be trying to catch up today. I have been *trying* to work with photoshop Cs3, so if I have new editing my on my pictures in the next coming posts.. you know why. A classic style in fashion: The little black dress. I was on a hunt to find the perfect one and I personally think I succeeded. Classic, timeless, sexy.. it's a certain kind of appeal you can't really explain. Simple elegance in the form of a very simple style.

Comparing Shapes

2009-08-12T05:41:20.423-05:00

When it comes to shapes, I am extremely picky. I have issues with lots of shapes for reasons other people might think stupid. (I.e. Shoulders are my biggest pet peeve!) Due to this fact, I always end up coming back to my main shape. (Plus, I love the face!) I own different shapes, lots actually.. But I haven't found any that I wished to replace my normal one. But, I recently came across a shape that might compare.. They are VERY similar, in fact I could change shapes and no one would really notice unless they look closer. So here's my test to you. There are three comparisons for the shapes below: Face, Body, and Hips. I want you guys to tell me which you think is better (Looks wise) A or B. Also, let me know if you can tell which one is my main shape from my posts! (Note: You can click the picture to full screen)

This is my second 30 days of summer outfit. Hope you like ;)

I've had some questions as far as the contest goes that i'd like to clear up.1) You do not have to post every day. Bloggers will post entrys as frequent and as far apart as they would like.2) Please join the in-world group. Everyone can join and this will help spreading news, updates, etc.. I might even have some designers ligned up for freebies EXCLUSIVE to 30 Days of Summer.. *Winks* Join: here3) Bloggers: Please join the Flickr group: hereEnough Business, let's get to the good stuff.. Atomic is opening there brand new sim this month! And I have been personally invited to get a exclusive spot in the grand opening. (As in, I'll be the only blogger there and be able to showcase items in the next coming posts that will be kicking off the new sim) I'm really excited about it, it makes me feel SLamous! (Shameless self promotion) In honor of these two major events (The atomic opening, and the start date of 30 days of summer) I've done my first outfit based off of a sneak peak "Atomic" Hair!This outfit is kind of ironic, because it's also based off of 3 major celebrities.1) Gwen Stefani Hair2) Lady Gaga Shades3) Britney Spears DressUm hello, call me the queen of pop and put me in box! This outfit screams glamorous!Queen of PopTheme: Celebrity'sWalk in, the placeThey know, my faceBig mouth, applauseOh please, one moreLove me hate meSay what you want about meBut all of the boys and all of the girls are begging to If You Seek AmyI am, I'm too fabulousI'm so fierce that it's so nutsI live, to be model thinDress me, I'm your mannequinI need, some new stilettosCan't walk, down the street in thoseYou are, who you wear it's trueA girl's just as hot as the shoes she chooseHair - Gwen in Platinum by Atomic (Not yet Released!)Skin - Belle Red (Light) by v9Shades: Fame Shades - Diamonds on Jet by VWDress - Superstar by Ash's TrashLeggings - Border leggings Black by CreamshopShoes - Spangles Stilettos Silver by CocoOh, but what's this? more to the post? ah well, in hollywood you have to expect the unexpected.With a few small changes I went from "The Queen of Pop" to "Moulin Rouge"If you've never seen the movie "Moulin Rouge" First, you should see it! It's excellent! and Second, you might be slightly confused.. So I'll give you a run down. Moulin Rouge is based off the real life Mouglin Rouge in Paris, France (Which Btw, I've been too.. and it's gorgeous) Mouglin Rouge is french for "Red mill" which is the signiture outside landscape in Paris. The movie is about the lead dancer, Satine who is supposed to charm a rich duke into helping pay for productions inside the Mouglin Rouge. But, she mistakes the rich duke for a simple man who just moved to paris and was visiting in hopes of pitching a play he litterally fell into (If you watch the movie you'll understand my lame puns) Anyways, they end up falling in love with eachother, but Satine is not allowed to date, also the rich duke wants Satine all to himself so all the while they she fools him into thinking she loves him. Oh yes, but this is hollywood so a love trinagle isn't juicy enough, let's also add in the fact that Satine is deadly sick, and on the brink of death. Ah, the movie is very good. It's one of my favorites actually. The first time you meet Satine she sings "Diamonds are a girls best friend" which is a remarkable scene (Shown on the left in the movie cover) It's breathtaking, really. Anyways, I have a point to explaining this all.. in the pictur[...]



Bonjour!

Bonjour! I'd like to first apologize for not posting.. I have been exhausted, and spent all of yesterday painting my sisters house for her move.. ( I didn't remember how difficult it was before I started! ) Regardless, I'm thrilled to see such positive feedback on "30 Days of Summer" - Which starts in just two more days! I hope everyone is as pumped as I am. What ideas do you guys have so far for themes? I know i've been rattling with tons of cute theme ideas, and I can't wait to see how they will play out. Also bloggers, and blog readers.. Promote it! We want lots of people to participate and lots of readers to know and read all the blogs every day. Thanks to everyone who's already been spreading the word. I need to hire some sort of managers to find bloggers for me hehe.. Anyways, Today was Absolut Modeling Agencys fashion show for "AL'OL Shapes" I was sadly not on the runway today, but I did stay to watch. After the show, Mayra (The owner) spotted me and called me backstage where I was wearing this fancy "french" inspired yellow number.

30 Days of Summer Ad!

2009-08-05T03:53:04.744-05:00

(image) My 'Fashion Emergency' friend Jessica Pennent made me this lovely ad for 30 days of summer.
As everyone knows I am incapable of making any ads myself.
If anyone else would like to offer their photo shopping skills and make a ad, feel free to send me them. I am also looking for someone to make my blog header, as I suck too much to do it myself.
But for now, I really like this ad so bloggers participating in 30 days of summer are welcome to use it to post on their blogs to advertise the challenge.
I urge bloggers to post about it, and get people excited, even tell other blogger buddies about it.
And if you're a reader, ask your favorite bloggers about it! This will be a fun way to find creative new outfits and find some fun new blogs in the process..
It's 4 am here, and I have to go paint my sisters house in the AM before she moves, hehe.
So I better take off! I hope to see all of you on August 10th to kick off 30 days of summer!

oh and you can see more pictures of 30 Days of Summer ads, as well as join the flickr "30 days of summer" group here



Spinnin' back the tracks

2009-08-05T03:30:12.070-05:00

30 days of summer is off to a great start, I've had some good feedback, It's just a matter of me getting my lazy butt up to let people know about it. Regardless, I did have time to sneak in one outfit today and get some pictures in. I initially based the theme off of "Aqua" and constructed what I thought was a really cute outfit.. I even changed out of my vive9 skins for once in a great while! The look ended up looking every "Rich shopping on a beach resort" to me, and I looked for a place with a beach boardwalk.. What I found though it what I can venture to say is the cutest "Old fashioned" Ice cream parlor i've ever been too.. I've always been a huge hippie child, So I loved the retro 80's feel.. and go figure! The walls actually matched my outfit. I instantly grabbed a few shots, and even decided to do some shameless "30 Days of Summer" Self promotion.LollipopTheme: AquaI wish that I were a Bubble Gum, chewing on me, baby, all day long I will be begging for sweet delight, until you say I'm yours tonightI wish that you were my Lollipop Sweet things, I will never get enough If you show me to the sugar tree, will you give me a sodapop for free?Skin: Sundust Frex Light June-Daylily 2 by CurioHair: Sehra - Chestnut by TruthCardi: Sleveless Cardi Aqua by SCShorts: Kimori Shorts - Signiture pink by POIce cream/Location - Vainalla Ice cream at OFISShoes: Aqua Wrap bow Peeptoe Pumps by !SSUS![...]



30 days of summer blogger challenge!

2009-08-04T17:06:56.103-05:00

That is my thinking face. and do you know what i'm thinking? Summer is almost over!and there hasn't been any really good blogger challenges lately.. so, i'm doing a bold step and making my own!My blogger challenge is called "30 Days of Summer" (Yes, like the brand new movie '500 days of summer', just shorter!)The task is simple.. every day starting on August 10th for 30 straight days, bloggers will be urged to blog a single outfit based on a theme. This theme can be a color, a animal, a place, anything and everything. Every day you post a picture (and the outfit) you will give a poem, story, quote, or song lyric to synchronize the two. However, the poems/story/quote/song lyrics DONT have to relate to the theme itself, just the mood of the picture. Sounds easy enough, yes?Please if you're a blogger, participate and spread the word as the starting date is approaching quickly. Also, please send a IM or notecard to Malika Marville in world if you will be participating and I will link you to my blog as well as have a "Master list" of everyone.Without further blabbering heres my look and a example of what "30 days of summer" will be about.My Lips Like SugarTheme: PinkMy lips like sugar This candy got you sprungSo call me your sugarYou love you someI’m sweet likeDa double dee double diI’m sweet likeDa double dee double diSugarSkin - Summer Cotton Candy NB Glow by Vive9Eyelashes - Gemstones by [Glow]Blackdarling by RedgraveHair - Lollipop Light Pink by MagikaNecklace - smile heart necklace by fairy taleWatch - Oyster lady watch pink by JPBRing - Bandit princess ring pink by JPBTop - Innocent top white by Sn@tchShorts - Pink dot jean shorts by SugarcubeShoes - Strawberry Sundae Pumps by !SSUS![...]

Phew! I've been gone for so long! I miss blogging! D;
I'm like a blogaholic, i've been having withdraws.
Anyways, I haven't been on because my laptop charger broke and it took 2 weeks of mistakes and hastle to get it back.
I've had a lot of things to catch up on, so expect a huge swarm of posts within the next day or so.

But, I will start off with a
PLACE SPOTLIGHT!
So wheres the perfect date spot on SL? DecRetropia a really cute 50s inspired retroville.

(image)
It has rollerskating, a killer diner, a tattoo shop, home decor, a brothel, *takes breath* and much much more. It's a really neat sim, and I managed to pick up some really cute knick knacks while I was there. Everything is 50s inspired, so go change into your wear, grab a partner and head down to experience a really fun place as well as perfect picture spot for old souls. You can even buy a antique race car like the one pictured!

However, if you do stop by the tattoo shop like me.. go prepared! They have a booth all set and ready to ink your skin! It was my first.. but hey! I stuck through the pain like a trooper! (Sorta..)
