keeping it simple

I went ahead and stuck this picture in last minute because it so depicts the way that I’m feeling right now. Maybe someone else would see it another way, but I just imagine sitting there overwhelmed with so much work to do, wanting to be anywhere else but there, and just “sighhhhhhh”. No idea why I see it that way. 😉

Library 2 final corrected

I dug deep into my sl closet and came across my Kookie Armada boots. I did want to wear something newer, something I’ve purchased since my return, but I loved the way they went with the look, the skirt in particular. It’s young and fun and comfy…and if sl were real these are definitely the type of shoes I would be wearing with as much running around the grid as I’ve been doing.

Library Final

NEW Braid Bracelets from Izzie’s in a variety of colors to choose from, and The Basic Purse, NEW, by Imeka, purchased at kustom9.

Final Library purse and bracelet

I didn’t plan it, but all of these little gold hearts started showing up in my accessories. I relented at the end and searched for heart earrings to finish this simplistic look off..The ones worn are an old gift from Caroline’s Jewelry. To be honest I haven’t investigated Caroline’s Jewelry since I came back…but it’s on my list!

ZENITH @ FAIR

I’ve noticed that long, oversized sweaters seem to really be trending this fall. Hence, one of Zenith’s items in the FAIR event,  the Off Shoulder Long Sweater.

I was really pleased with how well these sweaters move with my, or rather Poppy’s movements. This is the type of item that would be nearly impossible to wear in the long ago, prim era 🙂 ..well except for taking pics or standing still.

It brings to mind a big prim sweater I bought a couple of years ago from one of sl’s top designers..it’s so beautiful but i was never able to wear it anywhere except for my pose stand. Once I stood and walked around it did all sorts of crazy things lol.

Of course there are endless ways you could wear this sweater..I think my favorite way though, would be all by itself, with Zenith’s second item at FAIR..Zenith’s Cute Socks.

You don’t have to decide which ones to buy because it’s only one pair of socks. They come with the hud pictured below. You can change the color of the socks, the ribbons, and the fuzzy balls. (heehee…i said fuzzy balls)

AMAZING NEWNESS FROM GLAM AFFAIR!!!

✿✿✿

I know every blogger has her/his personal favs and I have to admit, Glam Affair skins are at the very top of my list. Last night when I received a review folder from M4rilyn Magic of the Glam Affair team, I hurridly wiped all of my projects that I had been working on off of my mental desk and onto the floor and greedily opened the package…my heart stopped for a moment when I saw what was inside..  Introducing Glam Affair’s new  apparel collection Nero, and their new skin, Jadis.

I am in love with Jadis. She is all of my favorite things about Glam Affair skins bundled into one skin. All you have to do is look at the pics to see how beautiful I am she is. lol…jk hahaha.

Jadis  is available in five skin tones. She comes with dark and light brow options. There are twelve makeups in each pack, plus a clean-skinned version.  In this post I’m modeling the Natural tone.

Words simply can’t describe how well made and luxurious the new clothing line Nero is. We are talking top line, cream of the crop.  I feel very honored that my little blog was chosen to show you these things…I pray that my amateur photography work does them some justice..

I had the most awesome time ever taking these pics..I stayed up until 4 am last night…I couldn’t stop!  The entire collection is black and fabulously sexy. The coolest thing is, all the outfits mix and match so you can come up with countless original looks. I can’t wait to mix the pieces in with some of my everyday outfits as well. The possibilities are endless…

I always get tickled at myself when I’m trying on new things that I love…I know I’ve mentioned before how excited I get, lol..Last night I was getting really worked up.. I was trying on everything and I kept gasping and saying, “oh my god…ooh my godddddddd”…laughing thinking how it must look to a non-player…oh well heehee…I really couldn’t help myself…I mean…look at this stuff!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

_________________________________________________

Glam Affair is having a special hunt to introduce Nero. They’ve hidden 4 little baggies  throughout the store. The baggies are filled with skins, a dress, hair pieces and pose+prop!!! Each baggie is only 15L$…a brand new couture look for 60L$…that’s a great deal! I have no idea how long this will be going on so…..
