I’m so very excited to see Laqroki back in the biz. I’ve worn Laqroki skins for the  majority of my sl. I’m quite taken with the new Glam Affair skin from my last post, but the temptation was too strong, I had to try one of the new Laqroki skins. Their new skin line is called The Fresh and Essential Skins and features Mix and Match; all facial features are on tattoo layers, which makes it possible to create your own unique look!  I haven’t had time to play around with it like I’d like to but I am very curious to mix and match and see what sorts of looks I can come up with. Here are some great examples of the different looks you can create  from the Laqroki Blog. Laqroki has also released body appliers for Slink Mesh Physique, and Maitreya Mesh Body, Lara. (They have appliers for the new Fresh and Essential Skins and the Glow skins from before as well…yay!!!)  The appliers are yours for FREE the first week after release ❤
*(Regular prices will be set 9 Febuary, 1 AM SLT)

Giz Seorn of GizzA Creations’ new Collection, The Frida Inspiration Gown is a true masterpiece. Inspired by the works of  legendary Mexican artist Frida Kahlo, this gown is rich in Mexican culture. Vibrant, eye-catching red and yellow hues throughout, and the skirt adorned with images of two of *Diego Rivera‘s most famous pieces of work, “Mercado de flores” and “The Flower Seller”.  A beautifully detailed rose headpiece and a hand-held lily flower (with and without pose options) complete the look. The lily flower is not shown in this post, but here are a couple of amazing pictures that I found on the blog Urban Legends by Natsumi Kangjon if you’d like to see it. 🙂

*Diego Rivera was a very prominent Mexican artist who was married to Frida Kahlo. If you’re not familiar with his work you should google him…it really is brilliant. Special thanks to Miss Xaqueline Seda for her knowledge on art history and Mexican culture. ❤︎

*Contrary to popular belief castanets are not used in the Flamenco…nor are they Mexican, but Spanish instruments. I really love them with this outfit though. I found these on the marketplace, created by Una Daxter. When the left one is attached the action begins lol. You can hear the click click sounds and your avi does a funny little Flamenco-like dance..GREAT for driving your friends insane! For the pics I copied the right one and just used two rights because she wouldn’t even stay still on the pose stand when I attached the left…she was clickety-clickin’ all over the place.

This would be my favorite type of look, personally. Chic and comfortable, a big bag for all of my crap things. A sweater, in case I get a chill. I’ve also fallen a bit in love with Lauren, one of Glam Affair‘s newest creations. So far I’ve only found her at events but I have a feeling there is a spot waiting for her on one of their walls. (fingers crossed)

When I’ve had the chance to get on sl I’ve tried to use my time wisely, so I’ve been hopping around to all sorts of events. The blog Seraphim has been my fashion bible, I must say. I’ve mentioned this blog a time or two before, and if you don’t already, and you’re into shopping in sl, you must bookmark this blog immediately! Every significant event, fair, sale, hunt, you name it, is on that blog. They have pictures of all of the items and slurls to go with them. A few times I’ve been on and I either didn’t have a lot of time, or a good connection, and I will use Seraphim to choose the items that I want from the event I’m at, and if it is super crowded and laggy I will type the name of the item in Area Search (under the world tab on the top left in Firestorm) and when the item(s) come up I’ll click one and you’ll see a little red arrow pointing to where you need to go. Then I’ll use my cam and follow the arrow and Buy, Buy, Buy. Just make sure you find a spot off to the side to stand and not at the entry point. It constipates the system. :p

From the events I’ve been to lately there have been a few that I had to literally pull myself away from before I broke the bank so to speak. Sad November was one of them. The stores went on forever and there were so many things I wanted. Click here to take a look at a photo gallery of some of the treasures that can be found there. Another event that I went a little too crazy at was The Secret Affair. Check out their website, here, and you will totally understand why. It has pictures and slurls, and it is just an amazing event. I didn’t even get to see everything at either of the events I just mentioned, and I know I spent at least an hour at each.
Sighs, oh what one will do in the name of fashion…❤

the girl’s got game

gamer girl fin 1

It’s only been a week or so, but oh how I’ve missed my little blog. I wish I could clone myself and have my clone do my menial rl tasks and I could sit and blog my little heart out. But alas, that’s not going to happen so I must enjoy the time I do get to blog and make it worth while.

The Dirty Princess Gladiator Heels definitely make it worth while in my opinion. The moment I saw these I had to have them. I’ve wanted some black gladiator heels for a while but I was having a hard time finding a very tall pair that didn’t have that gold lion on the front. At first I thought they were discontinued because I couldn’t find them with the other DP items on marketplace. As it turned out, my settings somehow weren’t on adult and for some reason they are an “adult item” on marketplace sl…I guess because they’re so hot. 🙂 But it worked out because I tp’d to the in-world store and was able to look at their beautiful creations in person pixel.

I’m also trying a new skin in this post. I’ve had my eye on Izzie’s Neva for a while now. I’ve probably demo’ed it at least 3 times and I finally decided to get it. I love the full brows, the pouty lips and the cute little nose. Izzie’s is fast becoming one of my favorite places to shop. Her jewelry is beautiful and she’s making more and more applier clothes, socks, gloves, etc.

The clothes are all by Coco Designs; only 2 purchases though. The shirt comes with the scarf which can be worn separately and an additional tee in a different color. The black tee’s “additional color” is a white tee.

The jewelry is all by Epoque. I’ve bought a lot of their items on marketplace but I tp’d to the store this time and went on a late-night shopping frenzy in there. They have amazing jewelry, and I’m a fool for a nice set of dust knuckles.

Last but not least, the Gamer Bag by Le Primitif is from The Arcade Gacha! It was a gift from one Miss Neva Seljan, blogger extraordinaire, and she gave it to me right before I did the photoshoot for this outfit. It happened to match perfectly. I think it makes the whole outfit..with the shoes of course. It’s great to have a friend that is a Gacha addict because then you get their doubles, hee hee. Thank you so much sweet Neva!

not so nautical

lime and navy at ys&ys fin1

Wow, wherever do I begin? There are so many amazing events, gifts, new products..I never have a problem finding something to blog. The hard part is making all of the choices!

I ventured out of my photo orb for this post. I wanted to play around with some different wind lights, and as much as I tried to make it a “not so nautical look”, I decided it sort of was and went with, drum roll……the beach. These photos were taken on the beautiful sim of YS&YS. While there I picked up the glamorous Viareggio Bag. This bag comes with a hud (bag & hud pictured below) which gives you 20 different color options for the foulard, and 3 different color options for the metal. The hud also allows you to resize your bag as big or as small as you like.

~taxicab to YS&YS~

I picked up The Essenz Bali Wedges (pictured below) back in the June round of L’accessories, and they are now in the Essenz Main store. If you haven’t shopped at this store, or if it’s been a while, I highly recommend that you put it on your “things-to-do list”, NOW. Have a scroll through some of the new items on their Facebook page, here, and see if your heart doesn’t skip a beat…

IKON‘s new Hope Eyes are out and they are giving their group members a free pair! Denim Blue, shown in pic below. These are the first eyes I’ve ever worn that have a hud. They are quite customizable and they even have a light you can turn on or off, dim to bright, if you’d like to have shining eyes.

TP to Ikon. If you’re not already a member of their group, join, for free (omg I know, you don’t see that a lot anymore!), make sure you have on your group tag, and grab your gift!

To be honest with you, I’ve never really played around with several makeup tattoos all that much. I do wear mascara tattoos nearly all of the time, and a winged eyeliner here and there…I’ve worn lipsticks a few times..so I wear very minimal I’d say.

I’ve recently purchased Glam Affair‘s Romy (not pictured in this post). That will be a post all by itself, talking about her. She’s gorgeous btw, I love her 🙂 . But it looks like with Romy I’ll be doing a lot of makeup mixing and matching because she comes plain and all of the m/u’s are tats or appliers for visage. While binging at Glam Affair I picked up several different makeups and I’m modeling a few of them in this post. (see credits)

The Slink Physique

THE SLINK PHYSIQUE

Slink Physiquefront&backfinal

I finally bit the bullet and got the Slink Physique. I’ve been doing some research, and I said that I never would get a mesh body, but I must say, it is quite beautiful. The pictures in this post were taken right when I got it and was getting familiar with it. You can use your sliders just like you can with your ordinary skin. I didn’t get the Visage, which I assume is a mesh head. I don’t think the sliders work for the head, please correct me if I’m wrong on that.

I know most of you have seen this video already, but if you haven’t and are curious about the Slink Physique, Gogo’s video and post on the subject is very helpful. Here is the website that the notecard included with the SLP links you to for full instructions on how to get started with your new mesh body.

~taxicab to Slink and grab a demo!~

Slink PhysiqueApplier lingerie FINAL
Included in your Slink Physique purchase is a lingerie applier. You wear this like a hud, and you are given the choice of 3 sets of bras and panties to wear; white, red, or black.

If all of this sounds foreign to you I promise, all you have to do is follow the directions on the notecards and it’s simple as pie. It’s true, at this time there are some minuses about the mesh body, the biggest one, in my opinion, being that there are certain outfits that won’t work with it, because the system clothing layer cannot be seen. I have a strong feeling that, in the very near future, clothing appliers are going to be sold along with outfits and separately for layering options and such, if not already.

Slink Physique Dress final
Also included in you Slink Physique purchase is this amazing One Shoulder Dress, that fits your new bod like a glove. It is stunning.

Besides the shadows, these photos are totally unedited. The longer I blog the more imperfections I see and it’s awesome not having to worry about liquifying all of the weird points jutting out of various places on my body. This body could actually save me some time! ❤
