The Blonde Mermaid

As a little girl, the first movie I saw in theaters was The Little Mermaid. It's the first thing that comes to mind when wearing this sea maiden bra from Pididdle available at the Aquarius round of Zodiac. I wasn't even two when I was taken to see the movie. Thinking back on this, either my parents were nuts or I was a very well behaved toddler. I can't imagine taking the twins I nanny for to a movie. Anyways I brought out my inner mermaid again and snapped a photo. It feels like the scene where Ariel has to come up for air as a human for the first time. The only things I'm missing are Sebastian and Flounder. Oh well the handsome prince Eric would be nice too *grins big.*

Paint It Pink!

It's Wednesday, halfway through the week and that much closer to the weekend. Today I'm showing you the new DIY Painter Pose and Prop Set from Pixel Mode. This was so much fun to play around with, it's one of those things that brings great fun back to blogging. The prop can be rezzed with or without the wall, comes with canvas painter shoes and has twelve poses with auto rezzing props. It was really hard to choose just four poses when making a collage. Also included is a HUD that changes the color of the paint on the wall, cans, tray and auto rezzed props. I picked pink of course. You could also use the prop with other people so you can pick different poses.

Shoegasm

So it was just your typical Saturday night, hanging out with Isla Gealach, Valena Vacano and Arun Batra in the home of Miss Harlow Heslop. Harlow had to leave for dinner and left us all unattended in her home, a mistake on her part really. Of course any fashionable girl in SL knows that Saturday was the huge release of Gos's new Boutique line of shoes, inspired by old Hollywood glamour girls. Upon exploring Harlow's home and finding she had the Cheeky Pea Sweetwater bed with threesome poses and a video camera pointed at the bed, how could we not help but jump on as Arun watched on. This of course inspired Valena to talk me into a blog post based around these wonderful new shoes and disrobing down to our underwear.


You have to love how indifferently Arun looked on as all three of us snapped pictures and tried out all the fun poses, all the while telling Harlow on Plurk the dirty things we were doing to her bed. Okay to be fair it wasn't that dirty. But it was fun to revolve a post around three hot girls and some of the greatest shoes on the grid. Isla posted the picture she took right away and I love how it came out. Plus my butt looks fabulous in it *grins*.

So Close Yet So Far

I'm strangely peppy for being up this early on a Saturday and I'm going to embrace it. We got a little bit of snow last night so as I type this up I'm looking out a dusted winter wonderland. Today I bring you two brands I've never blogged before. This cropped sweater top is from *COCO*, a store I'm only just discovering. I paired it with these great trousers from a brand new store called Mutresse. The pants have tons of options so you can wear them with heels or flats. At the moment there are also mesh shoes and blazers at the store as well. I'm looking forward to seeing what this store brings.

Only Hope

So it's Wednesday and that means Friday is that much closer. I'm pretty exhausted so I've been sitting here watching A Walk to Remember and the waterworks are about to begin. . Get the tissues ready! Anyways this picture has been sitting on my hard drive for a while and I kept meaning to write a post but just hadn't gotten around to it. My favorite part of the outfit has to be the City pants from Drift. I love the belt bow. Each pair of pants comes with a HUD for the belt so you can change it. I also really love this new purse from Baiastice. Now I need to find it in real life so I can finally replace my old tattered purse.

50 Shades of Sexy: Better Than Chocolate

So it's the second week of the 50 Shades of Sexy challenge and gosh I am so in love with this challenge. This weeks prompt is "Better Than Chocolate." I wasn't really sure how to attack this one but I figured what do I like better than chocolate and the simple answer is sex. So if you combine the two well then you have fireworks in bed! I'm sure my man prop isn't just enjoying the chocolate but the view as well.

I decided it was appropriate to wear some lingerie from Kyoot since this long time SL brand is closing. Everything in the store is marked down to 50Ls until the beginning of February and then you will only be able to get the products on marketplace. So hurry over and pick up your favorites

Dark Mask

I wasn't sure if I was going to have time to blog today since it's my birthday and I have a lot going on. But it turns out I do! Today I'm a little more artsy than a straight up fashion post and it was fun to do. Trying new and different things is a great way to push yourself artistically. I loved this half mask from Glam Affair and decided to build a look around it. I feel dark and mysterious even with my blonde hair. Anyways let me stop rambling, I have a dinner to get to.

Stranded Mermaid

Sorry for the lack of posts this week and I hope you all enjoyed the Fifty Linden Friday post. The hard drive on my computer died Tuesday. I had it up and running again by Wednesday but then I got a touch of the flu. So needless to say it's been an insane week.

Rebel Hope has this gorgeous new gown in store that I've been dying to blog. It is by far one of my favorite stores on the grid. I love the shape of the dress, the texture around around the waist and the mermaid flair at the bottom. It comes in a variety of colors of course but I chose turquoise because now I really do feel like a mermaid who has been stranded on land. It also comes in white, platinum and cream, great dresses for any blushing bride to be.

What else is new? The Ava skin from Belleza is gorgeous. My picture of course doesn't do it justice but if you haven't checked it out in store yet, please please go demo. I'm also wearing one the three new hairs from Exile called Stay the Night.

Since tomorrow is my birthday I haven't decided if I'll do a birthday post yet but stay tuned and have a wonderful weekend!

Fifty Linden Friday 1/18/2013

So I usually just cover Fifty Linden Friday on my Plurk but since my timeline is private this means this information is limited to my friends. So quite a few people asked that I do a standard blog post so that more people could access it. So here we go.

50 Shades of Sexy: Cotton Candy

So there's an awesome new blogger challenge out there called 50 Shades of Sexy, started by my friend Shiloh Selene. This challenge was inspired by Gogo's 12 Days of Lingerie from last year. I wasn't blogging when Gogo's challenge was issued so I'm excited to be a part of this one. Instead of 12 days, this will be over 50 weeks, with a different prompt each week.

The first prompt is cotton candy. I can't help but think of the words pink, cute and innocent when relating the words cotton candy to lingerie. I may have gone a little pink crazy but I think it works. This lingerie from The Sugar Garden is super sweet with lace detailing. It's meant to be warn as a baby doll so it does in fact come with a mesh flowy torso covering. I'll be expanding my repertoire of lingerie shops over the year as I look for new outfits for the awesome prompts.

What's Your Sign?

Zodiac switched over to Capricorn a couple weeks ago so you still have a few days to run over and pick up this rounds goodies. Since I'm a Capricorn I knew I had to pick up some things to feature in a post. My birthday is January 19th so I'm actually on the cusp of Capricorn/Aquarius and find that I relate to characteristics from both signs. I don't put that much stock in astrology but sometimes horoscopes and such can be freaky accurate. I love when it tells me the signs I'm compatible with as a lover and those are generally spot on. How do you feel about astrology? Do you feel like your sign matches who you are?

Where The Streets Have No Name

Happy Saturday everyone! I hope the weekend is treating you all well. It's a bit rainy here but other than that I can't complain. Cracked Mirror has a cute dress out now at FaMESHed called the Resolutions dress, which is an apt name for this time of year. I love the detail of the little belt on the dress and it comes in eight colors.


There's a new shoe store on the grid called LaRoo. The creators behind this brand are Cracked Mirror, owner/creator of the Cracked Mirror store and CrashOV Uldstron, one of the creators behind Eclectic Apparel. The Sparta Pumps are their first shoe with skin and I have to say that the hud is awesome. Their website provides you with RGB numbers for some of the most popular skins on the grid so it took me all of 30 seconds to match them. I also love the many options available for your toe nails, including four designs.

Grasslands

There are still so many great things to get at this round of Collabor88. If you haven't gone yet, be prepared to part with those Lindens. Auxiliary has a cute tube top out with either solids or leopard print shades. I paired it with these great hand drawn jeans from Fashionably Dead. You are sure to find a denim shade you love. What else is new? Magika recently released this cute ponytail called Later. I love the front bang pieces, they add just the right amount of sassy to the hair style.
