fresh out of the box

So it seems while I was “away” Laqroki released a new skin..I finally was able to go try it on and unfortunately I loved it.

I’ve heard a few people comment that all of Laqroki’s skins look alike, but I think they each have their own look and personality…yes some favor, but you’ll get that with any skin line.

Linnea comes with 10 different makeups, including a natural, clean faced one that will be good for makeup tats.(also good for people like myself who prefer the natural look). The makeups are so beautiful and svelte though.. They remind me of Chanel and Lancome colors.. Each makeup/skin comes in a blonde brow and a dark brow version as well.

Hopefully everyone’s had a chance to check out LaViere by now…and if not omg…I’m sure you’ve heard of it’s awesomeness. Before my break I went nuts in there one day lol. This dress was my favorite purchase of the day I think..well no, never mind that would be too hard to say….it’s all so gorgeous. This little dress reminds me of a flower, and it wears really well. I’ve had it on for a couple of days now and I’ve been exploring and shopping..on the move…I honestly don’t think I’ve had to adjust it once! 🙂

moreNEWmynerva

I’m proud to show you Mynerva’s other new skin, Jenny. She is available in the same shades of Kianna that I showed you in the last post…and available in the same eyeliner options as well. (see photo below)

Each skin comes with a cleavage option and a no brow option. In this post I’m wearing the no brow skin with the Mynerva Dark Brown Brows tattoo.

I had mentioned before that it has been since the middle of last year since Rhapsody Wilde has had a new release. A few of you have contacted me and said that you are just now trying Mynerva for the first time and loving it…Yay!!! This makes me so happy and excited that you’ve “found” it (Mynerva). You can look at these skins and tell how special and different they are. The faces of each of her skins have their own “look” their own personality almost..I’m totally in love with them, her new ones being no exception.

They will both be available at the Vanity Universe Skin Fair..that starts tomorrow afternoon. (all urls will be posted tomorrow)

sgt. pepper’s lonely hearts club

“…may I introduce to you…the act you’ve known for all these years, Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band…”

I love this bag, I thought it was so perfect for my Lonely Hearts Club outfit. 🙂 And it’s not just any bag either…it’s a special bag. I remember vividly the day I got it..

I was on a hunt..it was the first time I had ever been in [croire], which is now one of my favorite stores. As usual I couldn’t find the hunt item…so I asked the pretty girl in the store entrance if she had seen it. I ended up spending the afternoon with the pretty girl…we did much of the hunt together..she showed me some other great freebies, she knew so much about sl fashion!…the more I talked to her I thought, wow this girl has got it goin’ on!!  We “friended” each other and agreed to hang out again soon…

I was shopping the next day and I went to AtomicBambi, I think I was on another hunt, lol… as I rezzed in I saw a huge beautiful head shot of my new friend on the wall, I looked down at the bottom and saw her name, Flower Ducatillon..and IM’d her and said “wow…I didn’t even know my new friend was an sl-ebrity!!!!” Of course being the modest girl that she is she said “oh, that was just for a contest”…but she is an sl-ebrity….Her blog slupergirls is one of the most amazing ones I’ve ever seen….and she is one of the most amazing people I’ve ever met…I love you Flower! I’m so happy to be your friend!

everything sounds better in french 🙂

I feel really bad about my last post..I wish I could forget it all…a reader, Katey Katya, nailed it when she commented…

“Are you serious? With all that is going on the world, this is what you are worried about? Imitation the highest form of flattery. Sure, constantly copying one’s style from head-to-toe defeats the purpose of having a blog. But, why care? Be happy you have a successful blog and don’t get a big head. This is only SL!”

Thank you Katey for putting things into perspective, and my apologies to Amulya Paolina for any sad/bad feelings I may have caused you to have..

Now enough of all that…I finally made it to Mon Tissu and omggggg..Amazing clothes..sort of on the pricey side, and I was pouting about that for a while, but once I got home and tried it all on…seriously…I felt it was worth every penny.

epigone

One of my personal favorite blogs is my.secondlife.free by Val Southard, creator of marukin (one of my very favorite pose shops btw). You can find an awesome freebie on any given day. For the look in this post I found 2 items off her blog, in two different entries. I don’t always credit people when it happens that way..when I’m just wearing one thing from their post..perhaps I should though..

A couple of days ago while surfing through Flickr, a look that I created caught my eye…and when I went to the girl’s page I saw that she’s been blogging outfits that I’ve put together…blogging them exactly as I did..putting none of her own touches or anything really…maybe a different hair..but the same accessories, outfits, etc. I should have felt flattered but my first feeling was annoyance. I know I didn’t make the clothes…anyone in sl who can buy those things are free to wear them…but to put them together and blog them as if she matched them all up…and of course not crediting me…I don’t know..it felt very…what’s the word….invasive? I don’t know…am I being a diva? What do you think? Would you be annoyed if someone blogged an outfit you put together? So curious about the women people who read my blog’s take on this situation…please comment 🙂

When I tp’d in to pick up the free scarf set from NoiRiLiCiouS I rezzed into a nice surprise. Out in the street, in the center of all the little shops on Rue DAntibes, they’ve set up a huge, beautiful Christmas tree with gifts from all the shops underneath it. I had so much fun going back home and opening all of my presents! Thank you to all the creators on Rue DAntibes!
