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.
