Cold and Jaded

I picked up this new skin from Tuli the other day and I thought it made me look like some winter-woodland creature. The whole line of Jade skins by Tuli Asturias is gorgeous, probably my favorite line from her. I immediately got this from the palest tone and then one in a tone I would normally wear a lot. There are 5 tones to choose from with 10 make-up choices for each. Actually, when you buy 1 make-up you get 9 individual skins because there are 3 colors of brows and 3 styles of cleavage included. These are L$1000 or you can get the fatpack of all 10 makeup for L$ 4950.

This one though, begged for a warm and cuddly look…and I guess it’s almost winter in the Southern Hemisphere.

Giving You The Icy Shoulder

I have to say, this outfit is all about the diamond shawl. I had never heard of the designer Pheonix Piek before last week but she and her store {*Aglaia*} have been around for quite a while. The pieces are all amazing, I was so surprised more people hadn’t blogged about this place before. And not only do they look nice, they are so reasonably priced, there is no reason for you not to buy a few items. The Diamond Shawl comes with a pair of earrings, for L$ 200. These are no studs, have a look at the store ad to see for yourself.

I had to adjust the size of the shawl a bit since I am now pretty much sticking to smaller shapes, but luckily it comes with a resizer script so that took me a few seconds. The earrings would have been a bit more complicated, so I opted not to fuss with them for the moment as I have so much on my plate. I am in love with these jewels draped over my shoulder, and since diamonds are a girl’s best friend, I’ll be wearing this for days without taking it off.

HideOut Hunt

This hunt started some days back but its continuing for a while longer so I figured you might be interested. Several types of stores are included which is great because sometimes I’m looking for an item for my casa and don’t know where to look or haven’t got the funds.

The hunt will be running until June 15, 2010 and includes 50 stores which are listed on the hunt’s website http://hideouthunts.wordpress.com/ although the items are moved around to prevent cheat sheets. You can also join the in-world group, HideOut Hunts Group – For Hunters, to keep up to date with this and future events.

The start location is *~* RnB Designs Furniture *~* http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/RnB/63/129/922

The sponsors of the hunt are Destiny Leimes (of P A S A R E L L A) and Bethesa Hancroft (of *~* RnB Designs Furniture *~*) so a big thanks to them!

Gone Boatin’

I’ve been a busy bee as usual, but I was able to get in a little “me time” and went boating on the calm waters of my home sim, in  a hijacked boat. I put on a few new items and set out. The look is casual and simple. My sculpted tube top is from KHUSH. It comes in 3 plain color versions: pink, teal and orange; and 3 printed colors: green (with flowers), blue (Love me) and black (Rock Hard). They are each L$ 75 so it’s easy to get your fave one. The pants are from Styligion and are called BmA, they come in black only and are L$ 160 including the prim cuffs. The store is new to me and the selection is small, but so far I am really impressed!

Here you can see a better view of the bag and hair. The hair is Michelle from fri.day and is a cute bun held back with bobby pins. A similar hairstyle called Michelle.2 is available but the hair in front is longer and pinned to the left side. The hair comes in 5 packs of 4 shades, each costs L$ 250, or you can get all 20 colors for L$ 875. This awesome tote bag is by *BOOM* and is one of the 22 versions available. Each one costs L$ 200 or you can get all of them for L$ 2200, which is half of the price you’d pay buying them individually. The designs range from sweet to cute, fun to funky, so there is something for everyone!

Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to wipe down the boat for prints and make my get-a-way…

So Kal Style

Wow, my life has been pretty hectic lately, so yesterday night I decided to throw together something with items recently released and some that have been sitting around for a while. Well, I didn’t throw it together actually, I took time to “piece” as my belle amie Clear Canning would say.

At the moment, I’ve got a bit of a free-spirit vibe going on which is something certainly connected to the chick behind the avatar.

It’s feeling like spring, a time for rebirth, a time for setting out on a new path. I’ve got my style working for me today, over the years it’s been influenced by my friends, fellow bloggers, look books, the list goes on.

I usually blab about the designers and lay credit where credit is due, so thank you DYN, Juicy and Exile for the great items in the last little while. I’ve been a bad blogger, but I’ve been taking care of business and will hopefully be able to keep this gig going for some time yet.
