Mesh Around – A Hunt!

May 29, 2012

The Mesh Around hunt starts in only two days!  The Ego Co. mesh-centric event will run from June 1st to June 15 and it will impress you with the long list of both old and new participating designers.  You’ll be looking for an item that looks like this:

This dress from the Happy Undead made me feel like I was channeling Torley!  What a great little watermelon dress!  Kudos and thank yous to Carra Fargis for including so many size options.

Fresh and Unknown

March 11, 2012

I found this sweet, fresh little mesh dress from Sugar when I stumbled upon the Depraved Nation Gatcha Fair.  Chloe and my alt both got rare dresses!  Woot!  It’s going on until the 17th, so be sure you get down there and pick up some great deals.

Also going on this month is the Fresh Unknown Hunt.  It’s been a while since my first post about it, so I’ll remind you about the concept:  The hunt is filled with gifts from newer designers and creators.  These stores have been open for less than 5 months, so expect to find some great new favorite creators as you’re hunting!  This cute skybox is from dirty.little.secret and I’m absolutely in love with the feathery touches throughout the design.  The hunt runs all month, so you’ve got a few more weeks to get out there.  Happy hunting!

52 Weeks of Color, Part Deux – Dandelion

March 8, 2012

I’m playing a bit of catch-up with my color challenge, but I’m getting there.

The focus for this color isn’t just about the look, it’s about this lovely vignette from Zoe’s Garden.  Adele Rhiadra makes me so happy when she creates these little meadows (her Autumn Island is one of my other favorites).

I wasn’t really thinking about it when I was putting this shot together, but Chloe often helps me work through my thoughts while I’m blogging, and today she brought my attention to the fact that spring is right around the corner – daylight saving time is this weekend!  I know most of us haven’t had a “real” winter, and I don’t know about you, but I think I’m subconsciously yearning for spring.  Chloe’s outstretched arms and closed eyes made me realize that I am looking forward to spring.  Embracing it, even.  I’ve had a lot of changes going on in my RL and change is always hard for me.  Change is a scary thing, but it has to happen.  So, as the season changes, hopefully I’ll be welcoming whatever blossoms in my life as much as I’m looking forward to the first dandelions poking their heads out of the grass.

(How spoiled by mesh are we??  I grumbled about this system skirt the whole time I had it on!  LOL)

52 Weeks of Color – Pink Blooms

May 20, 2011

So. I had to go out and get one of the Bloom Dolls.  I know, I know, I’m a follower, but damnit…  They’re so cute!  Anyway, I had a helluva time getting the hair to fit her gigantic head, but aside from that she’s too fun to play with.  I figured there wasn’t anything that said “dolly” more than pink, so I went ahead and wrapped my Bloom post in with my 52WOC.

I’m wearing RezIpsa Loc’s sweet little Love tee and one of her tattoo layer fingernail polishes.  I just had to wear this necklace from Iced, it’s called Bloom for Pete’s sake.  And over my shoulder is the absolutely adorable paper lantern from A:S:S.  So that’s that.  A pink Bloom for you.

The Moon and The Elements

March 13, 2011

Again, another twofer!  This one is mostly the 52 Weeks of Color – Umber, but I managed to spend Lindens this week (even after I purposefully missed FLF!) and decided to share my lovely purchases with you.  I popped into CHIC Management’s CHIC Limited Event for March and fell in love with the Mynerva skin.  Now, that’s not a difficult thing to imagine, but the four skins for this event…  Absolute love.  CHIC Limited is a monthly event with a handful of brands producing new and exclusive items to go with that month’s theme.  This month’s theme is The Elements and Mynerva has put out four skins with coloring and facial details to go with each element.  They are discounted so much I decided it’d be juuuuuust fine to go ahead and get the fatpack.  In addition, I also picked up the Petals in the Wind pose and prop pack from aDORKable while I was there.

I’m not exactly sure how I went from “umber” to “I’m gonna do something really cool with shadows since I know where the word umber comes from” to “eclipse” to “oooohhhh, pretty fire skin, oooohhhh, pretty tintable petals with cute poses,” but I did.  So now you’ve got your CHIC mixed with umber and fire.  Deal with it.  Enjoy it.  Or don’t.  I don’t really care.  Here it is:

All the Juicy Details

March 5, 2011

It’s almost time!  The highly anticipated Pure Juice event is going to open in only… 24 short minutes.  You won’t be able to get in until then, so don’t bother going to the Juicy sim until 4pm SLT.

I’m typing fast so I can get one more preview post in before the masses head over for their dose of Pure Juice.  All the hype (that could have been entirely in my head) annoyed Chloe a little bit, so she’ll be sneering at us in this post, her expression contradicting the sweetness of the pink makeup on the exclusive CandyDoll skin.  I HAD to blog this skirt and top combo because it’s named after me (yeah, right!) and is really cute and simple and easy to wear.  My Maitreya Golds on the other hand…  ugh…  They gave me some problems today.  I love ‘em, but I hate matching skin tones.

So there you have it.  Enjoy the event, spend lots of lindens, these designers made all these lovely things just for YOU!  Yes, they did.  I swear.

More Juice

March 5, 2011

I was just informed that the Pure Juice event doesn’t open today until 4pm SLT.  And while that really sucks that you’ll have to wait that long, it means this is still a preview post!  Woot!  Go me!  LOL

Anyhow, I was going to do a shiny-sexy-alien-takeover something, but I wanted to get this out this afternoon, so I scrapped it.  It was the fun little sleeves and the shading on the ViLada dresses that took me to space, so I popped on some metallic eyeshadow from a.e.meth and my platinum Gos booties to go with the flow.
