Bubblegum Weekends 1

Skin:  Al Vulo;  Miha, soleil milk (My Second Wardrobe)
Hair:  Truth;  Gabriel, granny (Collabor88)
Eyes:  Aphotic Gloom;  Clarus special edition, currant

This is my first go at Bubblegum Weekends, simply because I just don’t own too many unusual hair shades.  But I picked up this style from Collabor88 and since it was a fatpack, I had all sorts of bubblegummy colors to choose from!

I just went very simple to start with, though my mind is already teaming with ideas for future posts.

Finally Found: Kik Hair

Style:  Nina, platinum

I only check the feeds about once a week and even then its usually only the first page, just to see if there’s anything else new that I absolutely must have for my wardrobe.  I’ve noticed in the past couple weeks through the Hair Fair coverage that [kik] hair has been mentioned a lot.  *squeees*  Another hair designer find!

Style:  Bennett, blonde

I love the first time I go to a new-to-me store and come across so many must haves that my Linden dollar balance goes into shock from massive hemorrhage.

Style:  Fiona, platinum

And I really heart when there’s just so many things I want that I have to mentally rein myself in and make a vow to come back to buy more later.  That was the case with Kik hair.  After almost five years of wearing pixel perfect hair, its a really nice change to come across some well-done messy styles.

Style:  Fine I, platinum

Skin:  Belleza;  Aiko, pale 01
Eyes:  Aphotic Gloom;  Clarus, ocean
Lashes:  LeLutka;  2011 curl lashes
Shirt:  Berries Inc.;  Racer top, rose

The In Skins

Hair 1:  Catwa;  Sumaya V2, platinum
Skin 1:  Curio;  Candy, Moonbeam, dark Sugar Town 2

Two skin releases have been causing a stir lately.  The first from Curio is Candy and its very sweet.  I absolutely love the makeups and the detail in Curio skins.  I usually don’t wear Curio because the face shading always seem to be too light in comparison with the body and I just prefer it to be not as visible.  But a tip I read from another blogger said the lighter skin tones weren’t as noticeable.  I would give credit with a link to her blog, but I can’t for the life of me remember who it was.  Apologies!

I popped over to Curio and tried on some of the moonbeam shades and it was true enough!  I adore the Candy line and I’ll certainly be going back to try demos in the lighter skin tone for some of the other newer releases.

Hair 2:  Truth;  Bree, champagne
Skin 2:  Baiastice;  Nina, porcelaine, makeup 8 brown

The next skin is from Baiastice.  I’m not very familiar with this brand and in fact didn’t even know they made skins, so it was a pleasure to find them.  The faces for Nina are stunning in their beauty!  I think I need to adjust my shape a bit and scale down the lips some because they seem a bit too full.

I also learned a very valuable lesson when skin shopping:  Don’t wear hair that covers the sides of your face and cheeks when selecting the makeup style.  The heavy extended eye-line would be gorgeous with darker hair or complexion, but is way too much for my pale skin and blond hair.

Other items in pictures:
Eyes:  Aphotic Gloom;  Clarus, ocean
Lashes:  LeLutka;  2011 Curl lashes
Shirt:  Berries Inc.;  Basic shirt, lemon
Earrings:  Purple Moon;  Roses, vintage copper

P.S. – Just a little note that I’m on vacation and away from home until Friday, August 4, 2011.  All posts published during this week have been previously edited and awaiting publication in my Drafts.

Finally Found: Plume and Catwa

Top:  Plume;  Jeux d’enfants, platinum
Left:  Plume;  Plumeria, platinum
Right:  Plume;  Innocence, platinum
Skin:  Pink Fuel;  Elly, milk, angelic
Eyes:  Aphotic Gloom;  Clarus ocean
Shirt:  Novocaine;  Alandra blouse, pink

Some women love shoes, some love skins, some love handbags…with me, its hair.  So it makes me giddy when I find a hair store I didn’t know about.  Recently, I found two!!

The first, Plume, specializes in very elegant and editorial hair styles.  I’ve always had a few basic go-to updos in my inventory for those formal evenings, but I usually prefer long hair.  Until recently.  I have adored every style I’ve bought from Plume, including the new releases this week I’ve shown above.

Top:  Catwa;  Hayfa V3, creamy toffee
Bottom:  Catwa;  Sumaya V2, creamy toffee
Skin:  Belleza;  Aiko, pale 1
Eyes:  Aphotic Gloom;  Clarus, apple
Shirt:  Novocaine;  Allandra blouse, gold

Catwa is one of those designers that you ask yourself, “How did I not know about this?”  I only had time to run down the New Releases aisle, but I wanted them all and had to make some hard choices.  I’ll certainly be making a return trip to raid the rest of the styles when I have a couple hours to sample them all.

52 Weeks of Color Challenge: Lemon

Skin:  Pink Fuel;  Elly, milk, angelic
Hair:  Truth;  Pandora, champagne streaked
Eyes:  Aphotic Gloom;  Clarus, ocean
Shirt:  Indyra Originals;  Kaegan Cowl Necked Jersey top, aurora
Shorts:  Maitreya;  Jean shorts, faded
Bracelets:  League;  Wanderer & Miel;  Chum

I went pretty much down-to-the-wire with this week’s challenge due to some RL issues and I’m just now writing the post to go with the picture right before I publish it.

Thank goodness Lemon was easy enough for me to assemble.  Not because of an abundance of yellow items, but just the opposite and only having a few in my inventory.  I’ve always felt that as a blonde, yellow tones kinda washed me out.  Its only been recently that I’ve been picking up a few here and there.  I have so few yellow items, I actually had to go back to my pictures for Yellow, Goldenrod, and Banana to make sure I hadn’t used this top before.

I finally gave in and got the Elly skin from Pink Fuel and I’ve got it ranked among my top two favorite skins in my inventory.  I’ve also been branching out with my eyes, using Aphotic Gloom (instead of my usual Negaposi) and in shades other than green.

I’m excited about next week’s color, Patriarch, a rich royal purple!

More From the Mansion

Skin:  Belleza;  Aiko, pale 1
Hair:  LeLutka;  Loose, sweeden
Eyes:  Aphotic Gloom;  Clarus, watermelon
Lingerie:  The Whore Mansion;  Neglige Intimate
Bracelets:  League;  Wanderer bracelet & Miel;  Chum bracelet

When I made my first trip to The Whore Mansion last week, I picked up several items, some that all modesty prevents me from highlighting here.  But I can show off my new lingerie.  It looks so comfortable and soft, I wish I had one like it in RL.

My new Chum bracelet from Miel and the Loose hair from LeLutka are quickly becoming part of my go-to wardrobe.  And for a great bargain…the Watermelon eyes from Aphotic Gloom were only $ 1 L on Marketplace!

Finally Found: The Whore Mansion

Skin:  Belleza;  Aiko, pale 1
Hair:  Clawtooth;  Pretty Words, bombshell blonde
Eyes:  Aphotic Gloom;  Clarus, watermelon
Shirt:  The Whore Mansion;  Suck My Top, cool white
Skirt:  The Whore Mansion;  Candie’s skirt, pattern dots
Socks:  Jane;  Lil Piggies Sassy socks, milk
Shoes:  UBU;  PornStar xtra high tops
Bracelets:  League;  Wanderer bracelet & Miel;  Chum bracelet

Thanks to Luna Jubilee’s Mauve Color Challenge post, I finally managed to find The Whore Mansion.  Now its no secret to anyone that knows me that I like to bust out (literally) the slutty clothes occasionally.  And with a boyfriend that really appreciates short skirts, I find myself in them more often than not lately.  The Whore Mansion was a perfect shopping site for all my tight, low-cut and micro-skirt needs.

I couldn’t resist this little mix n’ match outfit in hot pink and virginal white that gave me an 80’s vibe.  I decided not to go with the expected Do-Me stilettos and went kinda tomboyish with the over-the-knee socks and hightops.

I also got to show off one of my Hair Fair finds from Clawtooth and my new eyes from Aphotic Gloom (referred by a post on Gogo’s blog).
