Leezu at TDR 29

Surprisingly, I have not bought everything in sight at The Dressing Room for a second week running… maybe it’s just me, but nothing really seems to have caught my eye… that is except for this stunning creation from Leezu. I just adore the hat and I’m a huge fan of playsuits and rompers anyway. My pose props are part of a Last Chance sale set at ANA_MAtions this month – lots of discounted items available until 30th May and well worth a look. I picked up the cubism full set that can cater for just one avatar, or up to four. The cubes are mod and so easily textured to suit the photo  ❤

Outfit and hat: Leezu Nyar – Olive (TDR 69L$)
Skin: Natural Beauty Malinka #07 – Sunkissed
Hair: Magika Dara -blondes
Feet: N-Core FEET
Poses: ANA_MAtions Cubism Set D – 100L$ in sale

Hunt Gift Skins and JustB Dollarbie

May 2, 2011 2 comments

Three new versions of Miah McAuley’s stunning Malinka skin available at Natural Beauty this week. The first is the Super Bargain Saturday offering for just 70L$ in store. The second two are gifts for the Where is? and Lazy Daisy hunts. The SBS and Where Is? skins are both offered in Fair tone only, and the Lazy Daisy gift is Medium tone… all are exclusive makeups. I simple adore the glossy cerise lips and smokey eyes on the SBS skin.

I also popped over to pick up the latest lovely dollarbie from Bee Baroque at JustB. The sleeveless knit top has been a previous group gift in a more wintery shade, but as we are now well into spring/summer she is now offering it in Ivory as a dollarbie for group members. With its delicate frills and sheer back it is an elegant, but sexy piece that I shall be wearing often. I’m wearing it with her fantastically textured tweed unisex pants in Coffee. These are not free, but are so versatile that they are well worth the 129L$ price tag! My hair is from Tiny Bird, where all styles are currently 100L$ per colour pack, but the store is due to close soon so not sure how long they are available for.

Shirt: JustB Sleeveless Knit Top – Ivory (group dollarbie)
Pants: JustB Tweed Unisex Pants – Coffee
Skin: Natural Beauty Malinka – Sunkissed
Hair: Tiny Bird Sunset Soon Forgotten – Platinum (light blondes)
Feet: N-Core FEET

Magika’s Latest Release <3

April 30, 2011 Leave a comment

As regular readers will know, I adore Magika and rarely wear any other hair. So I always hurry over as soon as I receive the New Releases notecard. I tend to buy either the fatpack or just the blondes pack depending on the style, and I adored this soft, curly style with it’s fabulous bangs so much that I went for the fatpack. The bangs are usually longer than shown here, but since the hair is copy/mod and the colours are changed via HUD rather than having a separate hair for each colour, it was easy to create a second copy of the hair and mod the fringe slightly! The un-modded version can be seen on the Magika Blog.  Huge love to Sabina Gully for all her fabulous work.

Shown here is one colour from each of the colour packs in the fatpack: blondes, reds, browns, B&W and wilds. My skin is the stunning new Malinka skinline from Miah McAuley at Natural Beauty (makeup #05, sunkissed tone). Due to the long bangs on this style, prim lashes can interfere with the textures, so I’m wearing Rock tattoo layer lashes from Mango, Mango!

In Profile

No… not the bit that tells me all about you…

After reading Darkley Aeon’s blog post about the profile (i.e. view from the side) of otherwise attractive avatars, I thought I’d better check my own profile. It’s been a long time since I fiddled those sliders and created my avatar and I’ve no idea whether or not I took the profile into account when shaping my face. The only alteration I’ve made since then was to narrow my lips slightly, so I was pleased to find that my avatar actually looks ok in profile. I have a certain loyalty to my shape, feeling that it is what makes me ‘me’, so I have never wanted to change my shape. It’s probably what has made my search for the perfect skin such an arduous one…. I was never willing to tweak my shape to suit a skin. The skin had to work on my shape otherwise not at all. Luckily, it would appear I still don’t need to alter my shape to fix a hideous profile 😀

Skin: Natural Beauty Malinka #08 – Sunkissed
Hair: Artilleri Rina – Platina (currently 50% off)
Necklace: Tokidoki Spheres Necklace – Red (Group Gift)

The Fashion Garret has released their new collection, which is always worth a look as there are always some great bargains from fantastic desires. This collection had an extra draw for me though… Miah McAuley of Natural Beauty has signed up and added a new makeup of her gorgeous new Malinka skin to the collection. This skin comes in the sunkissed tone (which is my usual Malinka tone – yay!) and is  a fresh-looking Summer makeup that looks just amazing with this cute outfit by Zenith which is also available at TFG. Don’t forget to join the group and pick up the gift eye collection and the special group purchase manicure. Whilst you are out and about, pop over to Tokidoki and seek out the rather adorable bunny handbag which is the Seasons Hunt gift.
