Made a wrong turn once or twice

Made a wrong turn once or twice
dug my way out, blood and fire
bad decisions, that's alright
welcome to my silly life

Not much to say today other than still totally infatuated with all my new Mon Tissu goodness!

52 Weeks of Colour Challenge - Yellow

I don't think I have struggled with any of the other colours as much as I did with yellow!  I now seem to have an abundance of yellow in my SL wardrobe but when it came time to putting an outfit together I just couldn't get anything to work the way I had in mind, that was until Mon Tissu released their gorgeous new lounge wear, after that everything fell nicely into place and I can finally move onto cerise.

52 Weeks of Colour Challenge - Sepia

I think I may have actually clawed my way back to the current week's challenge, go me!

For the love of lindens, it has been an expensive week!  So, you've heard about this 'little' store called Mon Tissu right?  I have been waiting with baited breath for their opening since I saw the very first teaser pictures on plurk and O...M...G, i'll have one of everything in each colour kthankx :p   Thennnn Glam Affair goes and releases their new Jadis skin and it is stunning!  I don't buy fatpacks of skins often, I usually just grab the 'clean' version so i can tinker with makeups myself, but after demoing the Jadis skins, i snapped that fatpack up faster than you can blink.  Soooo long story short, after my little spending spree, my Sepia colour post just had to show off my new stuffs!

52 Weeks of Colour Challenge - Plum

I am weeks behind in this challenge thanks to my computer processor that is slowly dying.  The good news is a new computer is on the way, the bad news is that it is caught up in the Christmas rush and won't be here for a few weeks, so please excuse my limping photography attempts for the next couple of posts.  Anywho, onto to plum-y goodness:

Being a more earth tones kinda of girl I struggled with plum for a while and whilst this outfit may border slightly on the more lavender side of purple, I'm covering all basis by taking the inworld shot at the beautiful wintery location, Plum Island.

ps.  Tres Blah's new Blessa skin is love!

52 Weeks of Colour Challenge - Goldenrod

I wasn't exactly sure what colour Goldenrod was, so I spent some time with my good friend google only to find out that Goldenrod is the colour of a Crayola Crayon.  I figured dressing up as a crayon was probably a touch too easy so instead this was my best attempt at using some yellow hues.

52 Weeks of Colour Challenge - Blue

Yes I know, I'm late, again.  It really shouldn't come as a surprise by now :p

As half of the world prepares for snow, sleet and Santa some of us are preparing to embrace the warmth and beauty of summer.  Bon fires on the beach, more sunshine than you can sometimes stand and of course the traditional Christmas BBQ surrounded by family and friends.   As the temperature starts to rise I am finding myself more and more in the mood to sport shorts, t-shirts and sneakers in search of the summer fun that is only just around the corner.

Shades of Grey

The sun is white, the moon is grey
And the river is black, blue and green
The young are young, the old are old
And there are no shades of grey in between...

We all know about Luna Jubilee's colour challenge by now right?  This week's colour is grey and as usual I'm a lil late to the party but I did have fun putting this together given that I would say a good 80% of  my wardrobe falls into the gray/silver/black category, so I was set for this week.... the other 51 weeks however, could be challenging!

Today I'm also sporting the new Amber skin from League!  I've been pretty attached to my atomic skin lately and have been uber fussy when trying on new skins but I do have to say Nena Janus of League has excelled herself with the Amber Skin line, it is completely gorgeous and I have spent alll day kicking myself for being a tightass and only buying one makeup instead of the set!    As is usual with League skins, there are HEAPS of options as to how you wear your skin be it with cleavage or freckles or both or none, as well as, an abundance of makeup to keep even the most discerning skin customer (me!) happy.  If you haven't seen it yet, go and have a looksie..

But back to the task at hand 52 weeks of colour, starting with grey!

After a hurricane comes a rainbow

You don't have to feel like a waste of space
you're original, cannot be replaced
if you only knew what the future holds
after a hurricane comes a rainbow..

I wasn't actually going to blog this outfit because it's relatively simple in nature and the absolutely stunning dress from Zaara certainly needs no introduction, but after refusing to take it off for a few days, i figured why not share the love anyway?  So currently, I'm loving my new  Zaara dress annnnd my rediscovered Sigma earrings and Pixel Mode Shoes.  It really is amazing what you find when you get off your butt and clean up your inventory!

The Rumor Sim Dress Up Challenge

Emily Kaestner of Croire let me know through flickr that The Rumor Sim was holding a dress up challenge to celebrate their revamp.  Now I love a good challenge, I just never seem to have the time to do many of them lately, but I wanted to see the new Sim layout and this seemed like as good an excuse as any to get myself motivated and go.  The rules of the challenge are relatively simple, you must be wearing at least one article from a store on The Rumor Sim, and your photo must be shot on the Sim itself.

I chose to use the cool little auditorium on the Sim and sort of had a whole rocked out image in mind, however gremlins seem to have invaded my computer and made it damn near impossible to take a picture without SL crashing and then just to add to my frustration photoshop decided to hate me too, so please excuse my crappy photography today and do not let it deter you from visiting The Rumor!  The revamp is great and all your favourites are back so it's definitely worth a visit!

Welcome to the master plan

We are the face of a new generation
We are the ones who have no reservation
Don't give a damn 'bout  your cold calculation
Welcome to the master plan
Don't care if you understand

I've had a long running love affair with the jewellery made by Mister Naith Smith of NSD but when I saw this jacket, I knew instantly, that this affair was about to extend to his clothing line too!  There are three new jackets available in his store now but the Gallagher would have to be my favourite.  With the option to wear the hood up or down, extra modifiable bits included so you don't have to worry about forgetting to copy them and an overall super comfy feel.... it's definitely a winner.

Home sweet home

There must be something in the water at the moment because everyone has the decorating bug and in my case, I'm sure my neighbours are thrilled.  You see, up until this point, I've been known as the girl who changes her house every few weeks and decorates it with nothing but a pose stand!  This all changed though upon receiving the note card from LISP that their new Beatrice furniture pack was available, just one look and I knew had to have it!  I love home furnishings that have a country-esq feel to them so after that, everything fell very easily into place and I'm kinda in love with the final result.

So long live the car crash hearts

So long live the car crash hearts
Cry on the couch
All the poets come to life
Fix me in 45...

I love me some new jackets, so I'm surprised not everyone on grid heard my delightful squeals when I stumbled across this utterly gorgeous new aviator jacket from JANE.  It landed in my inventory just in time to rug up against the elements and survive the horrid weather we have been having for the past week. Also, just as a random side note I do have to say I love love love it when creators put jacket collars as spine attachments instead of chest ones, which Janie Marlowe of Jane does, so you are awesome, thank you!

I was also fortunate enough to get a nice little distraction from the miserable rainy weather by way of a surprise from the lovely Slava Parkin of Garage, who was kind enough to drop me off a copy of her newly released Alexa skin series to have a play with .  The skin comes in a plain or bronzed version and has a nice dewy feel to it. 

With 3 different skin shades annnnnnd some of Slava's fabulous tattoo layer eyeshadows and lashes, there is definitely something for everyone, so go and check out Garage!

Plurky Blogger Challenge - I'm Not a Transvestite, But I Love His Clothes!

Just in case you've been living under a rock and haven't heard about Alysha Rennahan blogger challenge, let me fill you in briefly.  Each week Alysha posts a challenge and you have to theme a blog post around it, pretty simple huh?  This week's challenge is to dip into the opposite sex's closet.

Raiding your significant other's closet is always fun because lets face it girls, most of their stuff is too big for us which automatically screams comfort factor annnnd just to add a cherry on top, we look cute to boot!  There are two things I regularly raid from the opposite sex's closet, the first would be hoodies, I have quite the collection to the prove it ha!  The second would be sleeping shirts, I swear there is nothing more comfortable than a nice worn in shirt with your guy's smell all over it to cuddle up in, couple that with some nice snugly pj pants and sweet dreams maddi!  Given that it is raining and miserable here at the moment I opted for the later option today because, oh yes, I love his clothes!

Dirty little freaks

So raise your glass if you are wrong in all the right ways,
All my underdogs,
We will never be anything but loud and nitty gritty,
Dirty little freaks,
Won't you come on and raise your glass...

I've had a few people lately ask where my skin is from because I don't credit it in every post.  This isn't because I want to take anything away from the wonderful designer or because I don't want to share it.  I don't change my skin all that often and I will always credit it when I do like I did way back here.  So if I haven't credited it in a while, it's pretty safe to assume I'm still using the same one.  But for those that are wondering Atomic's Audri Abyss 2 in porcelain by the amazingly talented Miss Ivy Graves is currently rocking my skin world.

I know I could love you much better than this

If all of the strength and all of the courage,
Come and lift me from this place,
I know I could love you much better than this,
Full of grace,
Full of grace,
My love...

I am in the middle of a torrid love hate affair with my Second Life viewer.  I LOVE that I can wear multiple layers and I think the introduction of the tattoo layer has been one of the best things ever!  I HATE that I still can't get shadows working properly in either of the Viewer 2 releases and the other authorized viewers kinda scare me.  But never being one to dwell on things I can not change lets focus on the all you wonderful creators out there creating tattoo layer makeup, I could just hug you!  I know this is not a new introduction but there seems to have been a flood of new makeup recently and I'm revelling in the ability to colour myself in all purdy like.  So if you haven't discovered the endless possibilities yet for yourself go and check out Cheap Makeup, Tik Tok, Garage and Kyoot just to name a few!

Everyone's got their chains to break

I've got another confession to make, I'm your fool,
Everyone's got their chains to break, holding you,
Were you born to resist, or be abused?
Is someone getting the best of you?

I love finding new stores I haven't yet raided and stumblebum this week pointed me in the direction of TokiD...I have two words to describe it, SUPER CUTE!

Plurky Blogger Challenge - It's a Formality Thing

I'm a jeans, shirt and boots kinda girl so the idea of getting all dressed up to me means painting my toe nails!  For some reason, I didn't think that would suffice for this challenge.  Fortunately however, one of the joys of SL is the ability to dabble in things you wouldn't normally do.  So here is my attempt at formality..

I haven't done any major manipulating with photos for a long time, so I'm hoping this has turned out ok.  I don't think it does justice to just how gorgeous a dress it is that I am wearing so i strongly recommend getting over to Phoenix Rising before the 30th of October and snapping it up for yourself for a mere $25L.

Because none of it was ever worth the risk

And I've always lived like this,
keeping a comfortable distance,
and up until now,
I had sworn to myself that I'm content with loneliness,
because none of it was ever worth the risk...

We are the bend before the break

We are the dead ones,
We are the lost cause,
We are the bend before the break,
Our steps seal our fate....

So I've been dying to put together something using the super cute shirt I snagged from Dernier Cri in this week's Project Themeory.  The shirt is still available at the PT price (I checked just a few minutes ago), so go and grab it before it disappears!

Seasons Hunt Fun

Two posts in one day, look out... and yes, i know my eyes look kinda freaky, SL is being a pain and I can't focus them for love nor money today so lets just move right along to the good stuff.

The Seasons Hunt is upon us and there are scrummy treats to be had.  Most of the leaves are relatively easy to find, as long as they haven't been shrunk to within an inch of their pixel life but even then, the group is super helpful.  So go, hunt and enjoy...

With a little sweet and simple numbing me,

Sinking into sweet uncertainty...

Plurky Blogger Challenge - It's all in the Background

This week's challenge is all about backgrounds which I think is kinda cool. So many people put in countless hours to bring the world of SL alive and often, I don't think they get the credit they deserve. Sooo with that in mind, I knew as soon as this challenge rolled around that I would be taking my photos at Pixel Dreams. If you have not seen this sim, you are missing out!

Click to see full sized picture
The whole sim is very rustic country, with broken down shacks, dilapidated cars and sun burnt grass as far as the eye can see. A little more exploration though will reveal beautiful bridges, rivers and lots of little hidy holes that make wandering around fun and interesting. Seriously, I could spend countless hours here..

And, just in case you are interested, here is what I'm wearing:

So, if you haven't already, go and visit Pixel Dreams, not only is it a stunning build all around, it's also the home to Pixel Mode Shoes which are totally scrummy!

I guess that's just the cowboy in me

The urge to run, the restlessness,
The heart of stone I sometimes get,
The things I've done for foolish pride,
The me that's never satisfied,
The face that's in the mirror when I don't like what I see,
I guess that's just the cowboy in me....

I have a secret....I'm a closet country music fan and had the very fortunate experience of getting to see Mister Tim McGraw live this past friday.  So with that in mind, I felt like channeling my inner country girl and this is what came out the other end... it's sort of country-esq...maybe... well at the very least it's comfy and perfect for the coolish weather we have been having the last few days...

Love is evol, spell it backwards, I'll show ya

Cause you just did the impossible, gained my trust,
Don't play games, it'll be dangerous if you fuck me over,
Cause if I get burnt, im'a show what's it's like to hurt,
Cause I've been treated like dirt befor'ya
And love is evol, spell it backwards, I'll show ya...

I had time to think it over,
And all I can say is come closer,
Take a deep breath and jump,
Then fall into me...

Deep and Meaningless

Yeah you,  I guess you had another direction,
And leaving me with nothing but a dead connection,
You still walked away leaving me in this mess,
My love for you is deep and meaningless...

Some newness out in the world today..yay!  First off there is the delightful Atomic VIP gift for September.  You do have to pay $250L to join this group, but it's totally worth it!  Then we have some more wonderful poses by !Dont Freak Out and Flowey, who have collaborated to bring us the Flutter <3 Willa series.  I love the How I Met Your Mother Reference in this pose pack but more importantly I adore the poses both of these ladies make, so I hope this won't be their first and last collaboration.  Last but definitely not least, Coco released these gorgeous boots this morning and I was all over them the minute I got the notecard.  So go...spend....enjoy...
