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.

ellie fin 2

I’ve been hooked on the Glam Affair skin December II lately, but I’ve fallen in love with their newest skin, Ellie. You can find her at several events going on around the grid right now. Check out the Glam Affair blog, here for details. I’m wearing the Ellie featured at Kustom9 in this post. There you have a choice of 6 makeups and the skin-tone choices are Asia and Jamaica.

ellie fin3Ellie. New from Glam Affair.

ellie fin chest dehancer

Glam Affair has released new Maitreya Chest Enhancer/Dehancer Appliers. The shot above shoes the normal Glam Affair skin on the left and the dehancer on the right. It smooths out all the shadows, and if you prefer a smaller chest like I do you will absolutely love it. I didn’t show the one for Cleavage/Enhancement, but they have a picture on their blog that will give you a good idea, here. I didn’t have the dehancer on for the pics in this post (only the one showing the dehancer lol)..this dress called for a little bit of cleavage. Isn’t sl great?

~Click here for a taxicab to Glam Affair to get your new applier!~

One important thing I need to add. Maitreya has updated their Zest Pumps to be worn with their mesh body, Lara. If you’ve purchased any before now you’ll need to go to the redelivery terminal at the Maitreya main store and pick up your updated shoes!

Lara by Maitreya

Lara nude fin

Introducing Lara, Matireya‘s new mesh body. If you’ve read my last post you already know how happy I am with mine. It’s everything you would expect from Maitreya and more. Lara is rigged mesh so you can use your sliders to modify her to your liking, or wear the same shape you always do.

Lara comes with a very detailed alpha hud (seen below) which will give you many more options on things you can wear with your mesh body. It also has system and extra layers that allow you to texture the body with skins, tattoos and system clothes from your favorite designers, with the use of appliers.

lara huds 2 nudes

The second tab on the alpha hud is pre-packaged with 10 Glam Affair skin tones. Woo Hoo!!! I know not everyone wears GA but I’m seeing appliers quickly being made for Lara and in the meantime, their matching system is super easy to use; it’s the same one from the Maitreya Gold shoes. I love that it gives you empty slots to save your other skintones. Just click the slot while you’re wearing a tone that you use often and it’s there for you at the click of the button. The hands and feet are included so your entire body gets recolored by the click of a button. That saves so much time! Also on this tab of the hud you’ll be able to switch your foot shape from flat to medium to high in one click. The Maitreya mesh body is also compatible with the Slink hands and feet size XS.

I also love that you can change your nail lengths on this hud too. It makes it so much easier when everything is right there. You can see in the picture of the hud above that this is also where you’ll find 19 manicure and pedicure choices. A nice variety is offered, and I’ve already seen quite a few Maitreya Mani and Pedi Appliers for sale as well.

hands and feet

Included in the folder of the Maitreya Mesh Body you’ll find an exclusive lingerie set by Zaara applier. A very sexy black lace bra, panties, corset and stockings; all can be worn or just the parts that you’d like to wear (set not shown). You will also find a Maitreya mesh bra & panties set in 16 colors, that is customizable by HUD. (below) They have an amazing fit and the colors are rich and vibrant. There’s also an option to wear either just the bra or just the panties..or you can hide it all and make it visible when the time is right. ~raises my eyebrows up and down~

Lara FREE ling appliersThe free-ness continues with a new VIP gift..or rather giftS from Maitreya. Shown below, 3 pairs of Maitreya Gold Liaison pumps made especially to fit the mesh body!! Make sure to pick up all 3 unique colors!! This group gift will only be temporarily available and those 3 colors are group exclusives, meaning they will not return!

maitreya group gift shoes

They also have available for a limited time, an exclusive selection of Zaara lingerie sets that they will only sell to Maitreya VIP members. You’ll see them next to Lara and the free gift heels. I chose the nude set and then I got the hell out of there! lol. Second Life can be one expensive hobby for a person with no self-control like myself.❤︎

NEW! from GizzA Creations

GizzA’s new Matilda ready to wear collection.
Matilda final

GizzA has some absolutely stunning new items. Matilda is a bohemian chic ensemble, and I couldn’t believe it came with everything..A full length skirt, a cute summer top, a denim jacket (a version of just the top and a version with the top and jacket), the handbag, the sunglasses, and the necklace! I’m wearing the [Green Lines] version, but there are several different patterns and colors to choose from. This would be awesome to fatback and mix and match the items too.

I hope my pictures show how nicely made and beautifully textured these creations are. If you’ve never been before, or if you haven’t been in a while, definitely check out GizzA Creations!

don’t lose your head!

Happy Thursday! I’ve been enjoying being back in sl. The only problem is, just as in real life, there is never enough time to do all that I want to do. It’s very easy to get distracted in second life, with all the new product notices from your favorite creators coming in, all of the awesome events, freebies, group gifts, hunts…                                                                          aaaagghhhhh!!!cinderella exploding head gifOk, shake it off, Poppy..snap out of it. ~throws a glass of ice water in my face.~ Whew..ok..I’m calm.
I’ve been doing a little exploring as well. The below pics were taken at a place that I’m sure most of you who are reading this already know of; The Trace. It’s so pretty and I’d say that anywhere you stand on the sim is a good photo spot. There are several little beautifully decorated beach cottages, lots of beach, of course, a sailboat..Many different options if you don’t want another second life beach picture. Not that there’s anything wrong with that, lol…all I’m saying is..there are a lot of beaches in sl. 🙂

The Trace final
I still want to go back and explore some more, I didn’t even get to see it all. I did, however, come upon some beautiful Hibiscus trees with vibrant, pink blooms. I couldn’t resist picking one and putting it in my hair. Surely they wouldn’t mind..I mean..I was considerate and snipped it off the back of the plant. 🙂

zarra sandals final final

Finally…it would be a crime to post this entry without a close-up of one of  Zaara’s Summerfest items, the new Janya jeweled sandals. These, without a doubt, have got to be my new favorite summer sandals. The detail in the gemstones, the beads, the entire shoe, is exquisite.

There are 12 fresh, summery colors to choose from, and each pair comes with rigged and unrigged versions fitted to Slink Flat Feet. The unrigged version can be edited to fit most other flat feet. If you’re not sure though, pick up a free demo, which includes all sizes, colors and versions of the sandal.
