Let us start with the bad news, shall we?
Today is going to be the last post I’m going to be doing for the next 7 months. I have finally been given a date for when I leave to work on a cruise liner as an Entertainment Staff member, and as such I shall be dedicating a lot of my time over the next 7 weeks to getting myself prepared emotionally as well as packing all my bits and pieces.
I just wanted to make this post today to thank all of you for having stuck with me over these past months whilst I found my feet and settled into blogging again. It was long overdue and I am extremely happy that my posting and images have been so well received from the Second Life community.
Now, whilst this sounds like a goodbye, it really isn’t! I shall be back. Albeit in 7 months, but I shall be back! I cannot wait to return and experience all of the fantastic releases that the creators on the grid will have dedicated hours to creating. Second Life will most definitely be a completely different place upon my return. That’s what I love about this virtual world. It’s always morphing and changing.
I shall see you all in May 2015! It’s been a blast.
Hey, everyone! I hope you’re having a great week so far!
I’ve been slightly AWOL over the past couple of days due to the release of The Sims 4, which I have been patiently waiting for ever since I heard of it’s release and tested an early version when I worked at Eurogamer in London during October 2013. I’m having lots of fun with it, and you can see what I’m getting up to in my game by heading over to my Sims Tumblr, or ‘Simblr’ as the community likes to call it. You can find it here!
Today’s blog post is a rehash of an outfit i’ve been wanting to blog for a while, when I was having my 90s-esque phase of looks a week or so back. I recieved a couple of new releases from Truth, as well as a lovely little shirt dress from Rowne for their Collabor88 release, and decided that these pieces worked extremely well with certain other items in the original look, and et voila! Here we are.
The pants, by Baiastice, and the bracelet (which I adore!) by Izzie’s are still available to pick up at The Dressing Room FUSION for super cheap! So head over and pick these beauties up whilst you have the chance.
If any of you are playing The Sims 4 as of late and have a tumblr page yourself, be sure to give me a follow! I’ll be back and forth between this and that blog over the next couple of weeks until I start to get bored of it. Ha!
Song of The Day
Michael Bublé, Tony Bennett & Fred Astaire somehow found themselves onto my playlist today, so this post was completely necessary. I wore most of this outfit my head-ache inducing, gravity-defying picture last night over on Flickr last night, and with a few adjustments worked perfectly well for today’s look.
I have only recently discovered Peqe, and I have to say that I am absolutely in awe at their fabulous textures. I actually bought this dress for an Elven outfit in the works that I never got around to finishing, but it’s just the right amount of sexy and classy that it worked for a ‘dinner date’ look.
I’m also wearing my new and rather fabulous friend, Herve Faenzo of FAENZO’s clutch, which is absolutely beautifully well made with fabulous texturing. If you don’t know of his work, you should; check out his Marketplace page here.
Now, most of you know that I love (and always have loved) LeLutka. I actually missed this hair upon it’s release, and only found out about it a few days later after a friend informed me. Goodness me. It’s simple, which is great for me; simple long styles are always timeless and yet still make you look worth a million Linden dollars with the right look. I might even head over to one of those age-old yet still adorable jazz dance clubs stuck in 2006 and see if I can find myself a sugar daddy. Do you think I’ll turn heads?
I hope you’re having a fabulous hump day. I’m spending mine watching The Importance of Being Earnest & Miss Potter. How quaint.
Song of The Day
Makeup. Smoke and mirrors. Many of us use it every day to cover blemishes, or completely carve out a new facial structure with highlight and contour (I’m looking at you, Kim!) and we love it. It makes us feel good, and we exude confidence.
I often have people approach me to ask where my skin is from. The answer? It’s not ‘a’ skin. It’s makeup. I want to share with you the layers and 5 steps I take to get my look, due to how well received this tutorial was back in 2011 and on my now retired makeup-only blog, but this time I’m trading the crazy eyeliner and lipstick with a simple, cleaner look.
The fact is, without all of my makeups layers? I look completely different. Some may say I look better without them, some may like it with. It’s about bringing a further sense of uniqueness to your avatar, allowing you to further stand out from the crowd.

With just 5, well 6, if you count the freckles as an extra step, makeup layers, I’ve completely morphed the shape of my face, keeping only the most important feature of the Kit skin visible which for me is the nose. Now we can apply this technique with varying degrees, but it all adds towards changing how we look. Ever wanted an eyebrow shape or a nose for your favourite skin but were disappointed with how it looked on your shape? Try this! Who knows, you may love it even more.
Song of The Day
When I’m working on my images, I usually pick on a style of music or an artist that channels what overall style I’m looking to achieve in the image(s). A friend suggested to me I try out a ‘song of the day’ in my posts, so let me know if you like it!
