My next 10L sneak peek! Makeup fiends will remember MAC‘s 2007 “unzipped” face chart…this is my take with a wee bit less gore, you’ll find it at my main store at the Deck. If you want to recreate this look in RL check out this amazing video by my favie makeup artist Josh.
This month marks some very awesome occasions…Halloween being one of them! I have set out a sneak peek of an upcoming skin release with a supercute Halloween only makeup for the bargain price of 10L. Grab your copy at the main store :))
Sonja has finally arrived!
Beautiful face, 3 new tones, complete body overhaul. There are 15 makeups with this initial release, at least 7 more are planned. So, what do you get when you purchase a Sonja skin? You get light and dark brows, cleavage options and blonde and dark hairbases on the tattoo layer.
There are some really beautiful makeups in this release, as well as some classic faves that work very well for everyday use. I hope you enjoy Sonja as much as I enjoyed creating her :))
Blame the bunnehs, blame RL, blame the feed…for whatever reasons, I have been feeling less than stellar about blogging. Time off has been amazing, just hanging out with the girls and doing bugger all. Wearing the same clothes and hair for a week on end *le gasp* and spending my lindens on things other than fashion. Sasy joked last week that the sl echonomy would come to a screeching halt if I stopped spending entirely, so in that vein, here’s some newness I could not resist if I tried!
These impeccible dresses are the newest release from Nyte N Day. The Stint dress comes in the most beautiful understated colours, perfect for taking from day to night with a swipe of lippy and a shake of the hair :P Speaking of hair, I’m wearing the latest releases from Fri.day. Cassidy comes in 2 versions, both of which I love.
Omg lingerie with no peekaboo :P Yes the lingerie from Nyte N Day is grown up, classy, and not a hint of a pastie in sight, thank god. The Tittle set is gorgeous, and as the title suggests, tittilation is the key, after all, who would want the milkshake if they can get the herd of cows for free? :P Hrmm, now I’m craving dairy products, go figure. Ash Out.
The first of my series of posts for the amazing 2010-The Future Is Now event. I was lucky enough to have a front row seat, along with Eden and Jussy. There were some absolute stunners, and it was incredible to see everyone thinking outside the box.
As soon as this came down the runway, Jussy and I were all WANT. Then when we realised it was created by Ivey as Sn@tch‘s contribution, we were DOUBLE WANT. The avatar is absolutely stunning in every way. It comes complete with skin, hair, eyes, clothes, and the showstopper tentacles.
Kali is the Goddess of time and change, and has been flung into the 21st century exqusitely by Ivey. If the future is nipple tentacles, gimme moremoremore!! I wanted Jussy to model for me, cos she totally rocked the av hard. Now I’ve got to catch up with my overflowing to blog folder, a week off is like a month in SL :P Ash Out.
Sn@tch (only available at the Greenies sim)
Every Christmas, I watch Love Actually and have a really good happy cry. Being a single mum means being a superhero, and mostly badass, cos I dont have the luxury of saying “wait till your father gets home” My watching of this movie, and letting myself get immersed for 2 hours every year has become something of a ritual for me. I have been spoilt rotten both in sl and rl this year, it being my first Christmas with my family for 14 years, and Mini Ash’s first family Christmas ever.
I’m showing some of the sl gifts I was so lucky to receive. It must be hard to buy for our group, knowing that not only are we hardcore shoppers, but also cos we blog, we already have a shiltload of stuff. We somehow muddled through (le sigh :P) and got each other some great gifts. We have all been rocking the nails from Mandala, I blame that Whimsy and her accessories addiction, it’s starting to rub off on me. After seeing the vendors ads on the feed a few months ago and getting sidetracked searching for one of the poses used, I had forgotten it was a store I wanted to check out. So when we landed there and I saw what is prob my fave sl ad of all time I squeed. The pieces are so beautiful and well made, you’ll want to own them all. The jacket is a terrible generous group gift from Muism, that our Sileny rocked so epicly on FS, theres a guys and girls version, so hurry and grab it before it poofs from notices. The dress is from a new to me store LP Designs. It’s the perfect mini dress and you could totally throw some leggings or jeans under it to dress it down.
Once upon a time, I had a folder full of clothes from Viva La Glam, it has vanished into the ether, but the store hasnt. And lucky you, theres a wee sale going on too, till January. I got loads while I was there, but was sad to see old stock wasnt out, cos I would have re-bought everything I lost. I had the best jeans, overalls and dresses……wah! Anyhoo, enough whining from me, I have to get ready for family xmas part 2, The Revenge Of The Evil Brother :p Ash Out.
Sometimes shopping is the awesome in more ways than one. The other day, while hairwhoring round the grid, I bumped into Saretta Tedeschi, manager of Beauty Avatar. It was nice to actually see her in the flesh rather than conversing via IM. Anyhoo, she asked me to take a look at the new collection the girls had released, which I’m sure I had a card about, somewhere in my inv, but group notices if I even get them do tend to get buried.
So I have 3 very different looks for you, and I even pulled out my super special, limited edtition shape from Silouhette (which is no longer avail but gotta give Carissa props for it :P) The first dress is Zae, and I love the structured, military feel of it. To soften it just the tinyest, I added my brand spanking new earrings from Uzuri. So new in fact, Bella burnt my ears off when she handed them over, they were that hot off the press.
I’m such a huge fan of babydolls in SL. I used to wear them all the time in RL until Mini Ash came along, then they reminded me of being pregnant so they found their way to the back of my wardrobe, never to be seen again. But thats the beauty of fashion in world, you can wear all sorts of stuff you wouldn’t/couldn’t in RL. This particular one is Carola, and it’s devine. The skirt is shorter than short though, so do be warned :P
This last look is my fave, not least for the irony of me wearing earmuffs and a teeny tiny bodysuit! Fiona comes in an array of colours to suit all tastes, the white just felt the most dramatic to me. The hair shown is our new love from Boon, that I wasn’t sure I liked at first, but it’s certainly grown on me. Now I’m off to go back to waiting for the postman to deliver my brand new E-Cigs (love you Ivey) Ash Out.

Oh happy day when a new hair store opens in SL. Having decided long ago that we were certified hair hoowas, Sasy and I were needing a new fix. It came to us in the form of Zobovic. We sat, we waited, we spied on the setting up of the store at The Deck, we (gasp) sorted inventory and sulked.
Finally yesterday, she IM’d me to say “Hair’s up” and a few OMG’s later I was already in a demo.The textures are just insanely good. Remember how crazy everyone went over Tuli’s pic for the Black Swan? Well these textures look just as amazing. The first style is “Boh” and screamed Mod to me, so the perfect dress to accompany it, is of course the Mode II from CKS Designs. perfectly form fitting, and because of the 67857856785 layering options, you can wear it over pants or jeans. Yay for versatility!
This next hair from Zobovic is called “Krysta” the perfect summer updo. Perfectly complementing CKS Designs “Summer Safari” shorts, jacket and halter. All of the range come in a dazzling array of colours, both brights and neutrals.
An example of the neutrals here, the Summer Safari pants and halter. The shading on the pants is divine, again with a choice of layering, and either tight fit, or regular fit with prim bottoms. Now I’m gonna sip mocktails, draped over a yacht somewhere in sl :P Ash Out.
For days I’ve been running round in this outfit, which is really unusual for me. I’m always changing, futzing, fixing and trying on. But this outfit just feels so right, comfy and me.
The gorgeous, whimsical patchwork top is from Tuli. I first saw it on Sasy, and completely cursed myself for not seeing it in Tuli’s store at The Deck. I have the socks from Pig perma attached to me nowadays, so a cute denim skirt was the perfect match, to show off both. I chose one from Axel that’s been sitting in my bulging Axel folder for awhile, I still have stuff in there from a massive spending spree that I haven’t worn yet…..bad Ash :P
My hair is 10 shades of cute. It’s the Olivia style from Tiny Bird. It was also 1L for Mother’s Day, thanks to Autumn’s generosity. The jeans and top shown here are also from Tuli. The skully top is actually part of a dress, but can be worn separately thanks to clever layering options. My skin, well it’s just perfect for the look and feel I wanted. Erin from La Sylphide is sadly retired, but remains as gorgeous now as it did when it was first released. Maybe it’s time for me to do some srs begging to get it back out there! Ash Out.
