So we all know that Rewind can be a nostalgic event that brings us back to the days where we regret some style choices. Thankfully none of those terrible decisions we made back then are at the event that is going on at that moment. Instead it like happy little memories come flooding back where my biggest worry was passing my calculus exam and whether or not Mike liked me. I do hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend and thank you as always for viewing.
This is one of two blogs I am going to post today. I took the picture for this blog last night, fully intending on blogging it first thing this morning. Well, I’m a little later getting to it but here it goes.
Powder Pack for January is a little different than past Powder Packs, as previously mentioned in this blog. Starting this month Powder Pack will only release one, starting with Lelutka. You will have from the first of the month until 11:59 pm on the 16th of the month to reserve your pack for only 1500L. On the 17th it will be delivered directly to you with no further work on your part. Forgot to register? You can still buy past pack for the full price of 3000L.
This month Amara Beauty has a lovely new skin, it includes a full skin tone HUD. Avi-Glam has a set of lashes and eyes and The Face has a lovely makeup palette.
Tres Chic opened January 17 at noon and Fabia is there with this fabulous new hair. It comes with a style HUD that includes 4 styles plus numerous bang options. I chose to pair it with a brand new hair base from Just Magnetized which is available right now at Appliquè.
Uber is still open and you may want to hurry over so you can get this fabulous dress from Lybra. It is a full-length gown but the details on the bodice are so amazing that I had to get a closeup shot. Available in 10 individual colors or a 17 color fatpack. Maitreya only.
I also included a beautiful set of nails from SlackGirl to complete my look. These bento nails work with Maitreya, Eve, Slink, Altamura, eBody, Tonic, Tuty, and Vista, they also come with a HUD that includes 9 colors.
Oops I did it again, and no that’s not the name of today’s blog but I did create pics for two separate blogs at the same time. My muse is working overtime and if I don’t heed her call she may stop, I can’t have that happen.
I was going through my 4Mesh folder to see what other amazing items I’d been sent and I found this sweater from Maddicts. Available for Freya, Isis, Maitreya, Physique, and Hourglass there are two different options for this top. Solid and prints. The prints offer best friend prints and you can gift the matching one to your bestie. Save some time and money and just grab the fatpack!
When I first saw these brand new facial piercings from Swallow I knew I had to have them. It includes the septum, bindi, and two nose piercings. There is a full-color HUD and they resize with a built-in script.
Sometimes my pictures go through many metamorphoses, sometimes the first shot is perfect. Today was one of those that I edited and re-edited, took multiple shots, and finally came up with a photo array that I could be proud of. I carefully chose each item I wanted to feature today and I wanted pictures that did them justice. I hope you agree that the end result was worth the effort.
Yes, this is the third time I am sharing this tree from Swallow, but look how pretty it is. Today I chose the red and gold version to share. This tree comes in four colors in two prim options for each color. You could literally have a tree in every room of your home. They are copiable and modifiable which is how this tree is so little in comparison to my previous two blogs. If you’d like to see the other options I blogged check out O Christmas Tree and Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas.
I also included, once again, this amazing garland from SAYO. This garland, along with it’s matching wreath is available right now at FaMESHed. It is modifiable so this time I resized it to fit where I needed it to and changed the ribbons from white to red.
The bar and super cute lights were to add ambiance. The bar is from Moon’s Artistic Creations and it includes a giver script that will hand you a drink. Perfect for any party. The lights, from Half Deer, come with 3 different coiled types and are lit up. I think that both of these items just added fantastically to my party atmosphere.
Okay, so I’ve shown you all the fun decor but what about my look? The newest round of Designer Showcase is open and Tori’s Stylez is there with this fabulous gown. It’s perfect for your holiday parties or a night out with that someone special. This dress comes in two versions, satin or lace and can be purchased in 28 individual colors, a pastel or midnight fatpack or a complete fatpack including all colors plus bonus colors.
Who says tattoos can’t be classy and formal? Not me that’s for sure and I wanted to share with you this stunning tattoo by Absence. It was released for the brand new Distrcit 23 event that started in November and is coming back December 23. It is at this time not available on the Marketplace and she does not have an inworld store, but keep an eye out because this tattoo is amazing. The HUD has both fresh and faded options for Belleza, Maitreya, Slink, and Omega, as well as Omega and Catwa, face tattoo for the neck. I didn’t realize this event was already closed and had a hard time finding an end date so I apologize for the lateness.
This picture alone went through 3 versions. I had a really hard time getting just the right look for this picture. Normally, when I wear a formal gown I do some type of updo hair but I wanted something a little more edgy to go with the entire look. I decided to head over to Lamb Hair since I hadn’t been there for a while and discovered not one, but two group gifts. Join the free Lamb group and pick up this stunning hair.
7 Deadly Skins makes all of her skins Omega friendly and bases them on one particular head, however, I have never had any problem getting them to look amazing on whichever head I choose to wear. Today I chose a skin that is actually based on the head I wear. Made for Lelutka May this skin is available in two skin types; freckled and plain, with 9 skin tone options per box. There is also an optional shape and lipgloss set for purchase as well. This skin is available today at eBento until December 30.
Dulce Secrets is also at Designer Showcase with this gorgeous makeup. For purchase individually, the eyeshadow and lipstick are sure to make you stand out in a crowd. The eyeshadow palette includes five unique eyeshadows and the lipstick includes 7.
Masoom is at We <3 Roleplay this month with these fabulous, fingerless gloves. These gloves are compatible with Maitreya, Slink and Vista and come in 17 colors individually with a four-color gem HUD. The fatpack includes all 17 colors in one. These are original mesh by Amber Chaudry.
I just love the mesh nails from SlackGirl, I honestly can’t get enough of them. These nails are available, starting today, at eBento. They come with HUD that includes 10 colors and is made for all mesh, bento-enabled hands. You won’t be sorry to pick up these nails.
It is finally the time of year that I can listen to Trans-Siberian Orchestra and no one will look at me funny. I discovered TSO when I was 18, so very long ago and I fell in love with the mix of hard rock and orchestral sounds. The beauty and energy they put into every song they produce just makes me smile. TSO is my guilty pleasure and I will listen to them other times of the year, funny looks or not. When I am feeling down there is nothing better to lift my spirits than a song from TSO.
What is more wintery and Christmasy than a snowball fight? This fabulous pose from Reve Obscura comes with a mesh snowball and is bento enabled. I just love this pose and it worked so well with the rest of my look I couldn’t resist. Available inworld and on the MP for only 50L, if you haven’t checked out Reve Obscura you really should.
I just adore Lybra and this brand new coat is available at Prism Events’ Tannenbaum, going on until Christmas Day. This pop-up market offers all kinds of things to complete your holiday. This gorgeous coat comes in 10 individual colors for Maitreya only and there is no fatpack available. I chose a color outside my norm for once but it’s so pretty and went so fabulously with the boots from Reign I couldn’t resist. The boots are available at Uber right now, don’t miss out on either of these amazing items.
Foxy released this super cute, tightly braided hair is available at N°21 and you have until the 12th to get there and grab this hair. This hair comes with a style HUD with 3 bang options, 4 braid options including a sway, and metals for the bobby pins that you can take off if you’d like plus color changing hairband. I just love this hair and I’m so glad I grabbed it.
Last year my dear friend Adalynne Romano took pity on me and helped me create a wintery scene. She’s fabulous in her decor abilities and one of these days I am going to figure out her secret. I may just find a voodoo priest and have them steal her talent and give it to me. In the meantime make sure to check out her blog. The geese and ducklings are her’s as is most of the other decor.
This gorgeous skin is from 7 Deadly Skins and is coming to the Frozen Fair on December 9. This skin is created for the Lelutka May head and there is an optional shape for purchase as well, it is also based on the Lelutka May head. I didn’t wear the shape even though I am wearing the May head because I didn’t read the entire thing and I chose a shape from West End instead. There are 2 skin packs available plus a special skin that includes the lovely eyeshadow pictured. Each skin box comes with 7 tones in the pack. 6 skin tones are included in the special box.
SlackGirl always has just the right nails for the look I’m going for and these mesh nails that are coming to eBento are just fabulous. They replace your built-in nails that are included with whichever hand you wear and come with a color HUD that has 12 options.
I have often looked at Ysoral’s jewelry but until these rings, I hadn’t purchased any. My friend had and he really seemed to like what he got so I thought, why not? These rings are awesome and come with all the included pieces. The rings and jewels can be changed all as one or individually to create a truly unique look. You can grab these inworld or on the MP.
It’s that time a year again, one filled with joy and happiness and challenges from Lawrence Pryce. I don’t know what possessed me to say yes, again! I did though and at least this time there was no zits. Honestly, setting up something for this challenge is lots of fun and I’m glad I could participate. Can’t wait until the next one.
I was given two items to create a Christmas picture with, I will cover those a little later, but that’s the easy part. For this challenge, the items given to me by Lawrence Pryce had to be visible in my picture but other than that the rest was up to me. I chose to create a Christmas morning scene and to do that I found the perfect backdrop from RAMA. This is an older gacha and you can still play for it at the inworld gacha store.
To complete the scene I decided to reuse a couple of items I have already blogged but they’re so gorgeous I just to share them again. This stunning tree is from Swallow and includes a low definition and a high definition tree in four colors. It is modifiable and can be resized.
The wreath and matching garland (which didn’t make it into the picture so well, unfortunately) are new items from FaMESHed and they are truly beautiful. The simple evergreen wreath and garland are sure to complete your holiday look.
The outfit was a little harder to decide on, I went with one idea and scratched it only to hunt for something that fit my mood a little better and I found it in this amazing Christmas sweater from DE. Boutique. Available at Designer Showcase starting today this sweater is made for standard avatars as well as one size fits all fitted mesh. There are no specific mesh bodies sizes included and this sweater is sold as a fatpack only with a HUD that includes 8 textures. There is also a pair of boots included which I did not feature.
I pulled the whole thing together with this awesome pose from Something New, available now in their Christmas Shop. It is a single pose with props included the wrapped packages and the Merry Christmas sign.
Now comes the items from the Pryce Christmas Challenge. This stunning mistletoe wig is sure to have the boys lining up to kiss you under the mistletoe. Made by Vita’s Boudoir it is one size and does come with a hairbase applier for standard avis.
Lawrence also sent me this makeup palette, it includes lipsticks and eyeshadow and it’s totally unique in the fact that it’s multicolored. There is one row of each that is one color and the second row is multi. This makeup is so much fun. It also comes with system tattoo layers. I paired it with the lovely skin that Glam Affair released for the last participation they had in Fifty Linden Friday. This Catwa applier skin has lovely red cheek for a great winter time look.
