You know what is pretty awesome? Fashionably Late is starting back up again! I’m pretty excited! I believe it’s been a little while since the last one, and this week has many really nice items.  Everything from makeup to dresses, and all at decent prices.  Certainly worth skipping over to, even if just to browse. You never know what you might find!

Something I don’t wear much of in Second Life is tattoo make up.  It’s not so much because I dislike it, but because I’m a really absentminded person.  I always forget that I own it, or always forget to throw it on last minute.  You know how I am when it comes to layering and accessories.  They aren’t my strong point!  Damned released this great rainbow pack of eyeshadow for Fashionably Late this week and I’m so glad I took the time to throw it on because it’s just so much fun!  I love the bright colors!  The pack comes with a variety of different color combinations.

Not too much else to discuss for this post.  I really love and appreciate TRUTH hair bases for these styles of hair.  This is a new release from TRUTH and it comes with the fantastic hair base collection to wear with it.  I’ve never been a big fan of hair that is pulled back like this simply because I think the sudden line between my forehead and my hair is so drastic.  TRUTH has really changed this for me with these high quality bases.  I really enjoy this hair!

I also really love these eyes from Insufferable Dastard.  I don’t think I’m going to be changing them for a long time to come.  They are just so bright and beautiful and I love how small the pupils are!

Have a fantastic Monday everyone :)  I hope your entire week is a wonderful one!

Dolled Up

Mostly raw shot (just adjusted the contrast a bit), and just gonna post credits today!  Busy busy day and my internet is being horrendous this weekend.  I fear typing you all a long post and watching it go *KABOOM*!  I hope you all are doing well and are having a wonderful Sunday!

Just Breathe

Instantly today as I stood on the Van Sim and got comfortable in this pose from oOo Studio I instantly thought of the song Just Breathe by Anna Nalick.  Remember that song?  It’s been around for quite a few years now, but has always been a great one.

This will be a quickie post.  Just wanted to point out a few new things of mine that I’m enjoying.  This outfit from *elymode* is really nice.  It comes with a variety of nonmesh and mesh options, alpha layers, stockings, etc… I really love the purple and green together, but if you are looking for a different color they have a few other great options.  You can purchase a mesh add on pack with this to add mesh sleeves and skirts!

Just yesterday I discovered the store Raspberry Aristocrat.  I know this store has been around for quite some time, but this was my first time venturing inside it’s doors!  Adorable hair! So adorable! As well as some clothing and other items.  My hair is from there, and I’m looking forward to going back soon to try on more items!

So happy it’s the weekend! I hope you are too! Enjoy it! <3

Anonymous Feedback

Have you ever really wanted to tell someone (in this case me) how you feel about them?  What you love? What you hate?  What you wish they’d do differently?  Anonymous feedback can be incredibly brutal, amazingly sweet, or perfectly constructive.  I’m gonna take a leap of faith and give you all the opportunity to anonymously post feedback and tell me what you think.

The site this runs on is called “what’s wrong with me” but really it can be positive or negative what you post!  Be honest!  You are reading this right now, and on my site, so obviously you come here for a reason.  That being said though, if there is something constructive or brutal you wanna throw my way then now is your chance!

Really looking forward to hearing my feedback and who knows…maybe I’ll do a follow up post about my experience with doing this!

Cheers! <3

Avatar Spotlight: Rylan Carling & Sixx Yangtz

Sometimes you come across people in Second Life that you simply cannot help but like.  They are funny, kind, talented, good looking, and a million other redeeming qualities.  When you come across a couple who fit into these categories, it is even more rare and special.  All these positive and fuzzy feelings instantly come to mind when I think of Rylan Carling & Sixx Yangtz.

I’ve gotten a chance to get to know both Rylan & Sixx a bit more each and every day because we follow one another on the social networking site Plurk.  While plurk hosts it’s inevitable drama and crazy, it’s also home to a lot of really wonderful, fun loving people who instantly bring a smile to your face.  These are the type of people who keep me on plurk daily.  Both Rylan & Sixx caught my eye simply because you can always tell they are enjoying not only one another, but every detail of their Second Life.  They are a couple who truly make the most of the virtual life they’ve been given.

Rylan and Sixx both run a terrific blog together called RyXX.  Their blog features such a variety of great stuff, that it’s become a daily stop for me when I’m browsing my favorite blogs.  Whether it’s the most recent fashion find, a personal story about their awesome relationship (they are so flippin cute! You should see how witty and playful they are towards one another on plurk.), a story about their expanding family & friends, information about Sixx’s awesome new T shirt store called 6T , or some great new photography, the blog has it all.  I highly recommend it be a blog you add to your blog readers or bookmarks.

If there was an award in Second Life for most notoriously awesome couple, Rylan and Sixx would take the prize with no question.  I was really honored that they took up my offer to do a portrait of them, and also ramble a bit about them!  Thank you so much Rylan & Sixx.  It’s been such a pleasure getting to know you both! Thank you for bringing your talent and fun to the Second Life & Plurk community! I think many would agree with me when I say that it wouldn’t be the same place without you both!

Oh and pssst… I failed you all on a fashion level in this post and completely forgot to ask them for details about what they were wearing!  Both of them don’t bite…at least not hard anyway, so if you have any questions on their attire, I’m certain they wouldn’t be opposed to you asking!
