Sing to the Dawn

June 28, 2009

Hbox music festival, which is happening through today, has put me into a music loving mood! Lalalala <3 Bill, one of the new starlust sim, was opened yesterday and oh boy, I’m in love with the whole sim already. A fantastic build and most of my favourite shops congested in one sim = Shopping heaven. Several designers have put out dollarbies in lieu of the opening and the shirt worn below from A.Y.Y is one of dollarbies available. The jacket is part of a really cute jacket from P-K. When I saw it, I couldn’t help being reminded of cruise ships. It just seem like a really cool cruise ship crew uniform. XD P-K is also currently having a summer sale. For those who got confused like me XD, P-K mainshop is now close and the items are avaliable in 3 different locations. The Autumn/Winter line is avaliable at Cupcakes, the Spring/Summer Line is avaliable at Rue Dantibes and the newer items, including that uber gorgeous white denim jacket Uma and Anya previously blogged about, are found at Fashion In look. Do correct me if I made a mistake though^^.  Instead of bangles and necklaces this time, I decided to accessorize with a pair of headphone from Jill and an old time favourite bangle from FBG which is worn as an anklet here. I love the fact that the Bo style from maitreya came with skull and spine attachments, perfect for destroying… errr i mean creating new styles. I matched the spine part of the Bo Hairstyle with the cute bun from magika. Both styles are avaliable at Hair Fair. However, the one by Magika is only avaliable for a limited time and will be gone at the end of Hair Fair. The skin worn is another group gift from Blowpop’s new line. This one is Ava. Unlike Elizabeth, which was shown in an earlier post, Ava does not have freckles and seems more mature. The soft, natural feel remains in the facial features and body shading. That’s all for now. *Smooches* <3<3

Hello, hello, hi, hi, hai…. XD I can’t seem to bring myself away from nerdy glasses these few weeks. The preppy cardigans from curiosity (TY malte <3) seems to fuel the urge to turn towards the nerdy side again. This look reminds me of Hermoine Granger crossed with Madam Prince(or whatever that librarian name was XD) from Harry Potter. O_O Due to the dark colour of the jacket, I’ve once again sticked to the browns and blacks. The pearl necklace is from pididdle. Its currently avaliable till the end of today near the fountain at Fusion Crossing, where several other designers have put limited/discounted items up for sale. Gosh the earrings, I’m absolutely in love with them. The gold, the pearls and the design compliments the necklace perfectly. Ps. Ignore the green parts around the earrings, that’s just the green screen that  failed. >.< Instead of my usual curios, I decided to go for a more mature look with the newly released blowpop skins. Out of the 4, Elizabeth is probably my favourite. I’m absolutely crazy over the cute freckles on the face. Try the demos if you have not cause the new release are absolutely lovely and the best works, in my opinion, from Annyka so far. A preview skin of each of the 4 skinlines is also avaliable in the blowpop update group. Btw, I’m using a unreleased pose from Pretzel Poses below. Its from a set called lucky chair which will be avaliable soon. Do check the set out when its out cause its totally awesome and contains actions that you so wanna do at the lucky chair. teehee. Ok, ’nuff said =P  Hope you like this look! <3

Yupx! The much awaited Hair Fair 2009 is finally here! Lol it even caused SL to had problems earlier on ^^ I was lucky enough to be given a sneak preview of the Hair Fair sims and I truly thank the organisers for it. The sim is super pretty! I love everything from the innovative vendors and decoration to the candies and treasures (refering to the awesome hair sold) hidden around. Hair Fair 2009 simply blown me away. Below is a menu of some of my favourites. *Yum Yum* Larger pictures can be found on my flickr. <3 Hair Fair is definitely one of my favourite events of the year.. so GO and prepare to get broke! oh and maybe hungry too XD The list of stores and its locations can be found at Sassy’s blog. It proved to be very useful to me when I attacked the stores earlier. Have fun! <3

Opposites Attract

June 17, 2009

Hot vs Cold
Sunny vs Gloomy
The Geek vs The Party Girl

That was what came into my mind while putting together this outfit. 

I’ve fallen back to the basic colour, black again with some red and gold to serve as contrast in this outfit. The skirt is a new release from the infamous “This is a Fawn”. (Thanks OMGWTF Barbecue <3) System skirts seem to be “endangered” in the fashion world. This vintage skirt was really well made and I was happy to abandon my prim skirts for a day to wear it. It comes in 5 awesome and striking colours and a definite staple in our summer wardrobes. Well, gotta love freebies. The jacket is a freebie from, Wave and the shirt is part of the freebie bag at v9. I think I’ve been spoilt by designers too much with prim cuffs such that when I see a jacket like this that don’t have any, the skinny and tight ends of the jacket causes my itchy fingers to type cuff and search for a perfect cuff to match the ends. I ended up falling back on an old favourite of mine, from bijou’s domani set which is a freebie avaliable at the shop. The gloves are part of a dress set from the shop kyccie. This shop offers a beautiful selection of girly and formal dresses, one of which I would showcase in my next post. Lastly, the bracelet is by the ever wonderful Naith Smith. The rosary bracelet not only wraps around your hand, it even have a tiny cross sitting in the palm of your hands. O__O << my expression when he told me about it. XD  Lurve it for its originality and creativity! <3

Anyways, ESME MILENA MADE MORE POSES. WOOT!! *smooches* I lurve them so much! Thankies! ZOMG you rock at making poses alright! :D

Seaside Glamour

June 16, 2009

I was so caught up in drama shows for the past few days and one of my favourite song I’ve encountered through the drama series inspired this outfit. The song is 梁靜茹 (Fish Leong) – 情歌 if anyone’s interested ^^

The dress is a new release from [KA] Designs. The plunging necklace, vibrant shade of red and the beautiful silk-like texture called my eye immediately. Not to mention the awesome prints and the puffy sleeves. This dress is definitely a winner. Gyorgyna Larnia makes one of the best jewellery in SL and this ring is a cheapie I’ve picked a few weeks back. Get it before its gone, as I’ve noticed she changes her freebies regularly. The rest of the look and the editing was accessorized to reflect the mood I was in due to hearing the song on repeat while preparing the post…

還好我有 我這一首情歌
輕輕的 輕輕哼著 哭著笑著
我的 天長地久

no matter what happens, at least I still have this love song…

Falling Slowly…

June 9, 2009

I had the pleasure to meet Meghindo Romano a while ago through our favourite bug, Nil. Super grateful that she’s allowed me to review one of her gowns :) Meghindo’s shop offers a selection of beautifully crafted gowns, super lovely. Below, I’m wearing one of her creations – vintage autumn. Instead of wearing it as a gown, I couldn’t resist turning the train into a skirt instead. Much heavy modding was done, including resizing and removing prims. I won’t go into details here hehez. Meg’s shop is definitely worth checking out if you need something glam or just feel like dressing up :)

The jacket is part of Beauty Avatar’s Estate collection, which was released a while ago. O_O I heart the jacket ever since I saw it on their flickr stream. <3  Its super classy and its best feature would probably be the cuffs that are super well made.  V9 is probably no stranger to the feed this past few days. They are releasing a new skin soon, which is the sister of our current love, Aoki. Belle has a slightly more mature face but the distinctive asian face features remains evident. Most of the glitches that were found in Aoki seem fixed in Belle. This skin is currently avaliable as a pre-release gift in the V9 update group. I love this skin so much, especially the slightly glowy face and the cute lips. Can’t wait till the line comes out!  Ahhh my current love! Btw, Thankies Anya for informing me abt the gift muacks <3 Kookie’s muggys added a hint of casual-ness and fun to the outfit. On the sidenote, kookie’s sale is ending on the 14th.. runs if you havn’t attacked! Have a happy tuesday! <3<3

Just Hope

June 9, 2009

Tuli Hope was released sometime last week but I havn’t had the time to review them till now.. so apologies for the delay. I fell in love with the skin when i first recieved it during blogger’s appreciation week as mentioned in my past entry.  Thank you Tuli for the chance to review them ^^

Overall, Tuli’s Hope comes in 5 skintones, mainly pale, fair, sunkissed, tan and dark tan. The 1st thing I noticed when I put on hope is that it has such a younger and more innocent look as compared to tuli’s other skinlines on my shape. Its most likely due to the slighty more glossy face as compared to faith, her previous skin line. Also, the lips is slightly thinner on hope as compared to faith. The eyebrows comes in the usual 4 shades (black, brown, light and red) to suit all the hair colours you would ever wear including purple(?) XD. Generally, they are rather thin and fine, which is awesome and fitting for this younger and adorable face.

On to the makeup, well my favourite part. Hope comes with 10 makeup, including a natural makeup (which you could get if you join the update group, totally worth to stay in and to pay for XD) The next 2 pictures shows some of the makeup avaliable in the differnt skintones. Note, the 9th makeup is shown in the body shot right below and the 10th, the natural makeup is not shown here.)

[]::Tuli::[] Hope  (pale/bl) gala | []::Tuli::[] Hope  (pale/bl) vivid | []::Tuli::[] Hope  (fair/bl) tequila |[]::Tuli::[] Hope  (dark tan/bl) blush

As seen above, the makeups are generally natural, nothing over the top. There is also a huge range of makeup offered ranging from the neutral and plainer ones like gig to the glam ones like sultry and gala. My favourites would probably be gig (as it is such a beautiful neutral makeup and gives me the most innocent look out of all the makeups XD), tequilla and summer (its 2 of the 3 makeups avaliable with double colour eyeshadow. YES double colour eyeshadows, everyone should do it! I lurve them so much!). On to the body, the skins have a slight “glow” on it, not too soft, not too hard. Just perfect. Shading and highlighting wise, they are flawless as usual and maintained that soft look that I love on the Tuli skins. Oh, have i mentioned I love the fingernails? They seem to be super realistic and flows flawlessly with the rest of the hand. <3  You would have to teepee to Tuli to take a look at the body yourselves. Hope is my favourite Tuli skin ever and definitely worth a try :)

Of course I cant leave the post with just a skin review. The outfit below is put together as inspired by the skin. *aka, the skin and makeup was chose 1st XD* The look is kept rather simple. While shopping today, I found this awesome Japanese store, Spica, which offers a selection of jewellry and clothes (well they have quite a few socks XD). The chain tie below caught my eye as its the 1st chain tie I ever seen in Sl and its beautifully made. Lurve it! I mentioned freshtrash in my last post earlier today and here I’m spotting one of the jeans that Itny made. The jeans are entirely handdrawn and is perfection. The socks layer instead of a prim is a stroke of genius, allowing the jeans to have the look that its too long for our AVs. This is indeed a breathe of fresh air. The jewellery, both earrings and bangle is from the creator’s pavilion sale. The earrings might not be visible in the picture but woahh, you have to check it out. It is slightly oriental, such as the stone at the top of the earring which reminds me of one of those precious stones I see in the jewellery shops.

On the last note, the fashion expo begins today! :D

No Boundaries

June 8, 2009

Regarding the title: Kris Allen rocks and No boundaries has been in my head for the past few days XD.

1 week away from Sl feels like eternity, so much shopping to be done XD, to the point of being saturated lolx. But I think I’m pretty much back :)

Creator’s pavilion is having is annual summer sale again from now till the 21st on june. One of the shops featured is Nikukyu which i’ve previously blogged about some time ago. The dress they had on sale, as seen below, is such a cute fluffy tunic. It looks like something one would wear to hang out all day at home or even to bed hehez. *It makes glam PJs XD*, matching my current mood. This dress comes with a millions of skirt options and even bottoms so you can wear it as a shirt. <3 Love the versatility of it. The only downside would be the lack of glitch pants for the tunic skirt option which I’m using below so badically I was showing my butt while dancing in SUL tonight lolx. JK, i had undies!  Itny Lisle and Daniella Tobias recently opened their shop Freshtrash down at the starlust sim. Don’t be fooled by the name as the things are definitely not trashy. Itny gave me a peek of some of her stuff *thank yous <3* and i instantly fell in love with her hand drawn items. Worn below is the flower hairband which can change 5 colours and super well done. I love the detailing and the whole shape of the flower. Simply stunning. I finally got the tootoos *the name sounds like a sweet which I cant remember roar*from perquita I’ve been lusting for, yay for the fat pack sale.LaGyo is a name unfamiliar to the feeds. Anya, Nil, Uma and many others all previously featured her jewellery in their outfits and my thoughts are along the same lines as them – This is definitely a store to visit. Gyorgyna Larnia creates different and delicate jewellery and the quality is definitely top notched. The necklace I’m wearing below, like its namesake, is unforgottable alright. I chose to wear the “simpler” version of it below. I never noticed the increasing size pearls on the necklace till I was editing the pic.. ahh lurves <3

OHHH the pose i’m using below is made by the AWESOME NIL GIHA. ZOMG! */me kisses the bug* I loveee them!! Plus she named them after me.. ahhh muacks bugsie even more.. *hugs!*

Ps. So sorry for the poor quality of the picture!
