52 Weeks of Color~Part Deux~Persian Rose/Hucci/Mons

Hey guys….guess what…..I’m Baaacccckkkk!!!!  Yay!  Thank you to all of my loyal readers that kept checking in over the last couple months.  I really appreciate that, it makes me feel good 🙂  Well, I have missed a total of 12 weeks of Luna’s challenge.  Hopefully I will be able to get caught up.  I am amazed at how much as changed over the last couple months.   The SL fashion community is constantly changing and evolving and is abounding with creativity!!!  Well for my first post back, I am going to feature some new mesh from Hucci and Mons‘ new skin, Jelena.

This week’s color is Persian Rose, which is essentially a deep, hot pink.  While catching up on the SL Fashion scene, I of course had to check out Hucci.  They have quite a bit of new mesh (which I love!) .  I picked up this adorable Glimpse halter and Suede mini skirt. I am wearing both in wild pink, but they have a large variety of colors available.  These were both relatively easy to fit too.  I fit into the small skirt without any adjustments.  My small boob shape was a bit too small for the small top, but a small increase fixed that (I wish my rl body came with sliders for adjustment!).  The skin I am wearing is Mons‘ newest release, Jelena.  I have never purchased a skin from Mons before, but I was looking for something a little different.  I tend to get stuck on my favs, Dream Ink, Pink Fuel, Glam Affair, etc.  Change is good 🙂  I really like the face and body shading on this skin.  It is very subtle and natural looking.  I also like the makeup.  I tend to favor darker,more dramatic eye makeup and Mons has a HUGE variety!  I am wearing the tan version of the skin and it came with several different makeups, 2 brow options (I am wearing natural) and a cleavage option.  I did purchase this lipstick separately from the basic skin pack.  It was in the Dominant pack.  These photos below have not been edited, other than to be cropped and a small amount of liquify to fix pointy elbows.  My hair is from Catwa, my earrings are from glow, my rings are from Dark Mouse, my tattoo is from Chelle, and my nails are from Love Soul.

Happy Shopping ❤

52 Weeks of Color~Part Deux~Bright Turquoise

Well, I normally have my 52 Weeks of Color post done every Saturday evening, but I had to go see Nickleback instead 🙂   I am a huge, huge Nickleback fan and it was my first time seeing them in concert!  It was a great concert!  Unfortunately, since then, my two daughters and I have been fighting colds all week 😦   I did find time to hunt down my Bright Turquoise outfit though, and I must say I really, really like the outfit I found.  It is Linda from Purple Moon. I love the bright pattern and the full, flirty skirt of the dress.  With it, I am wearing a ruffled bolero sweater from G Field, The Pearl Rain jewelry set from Mandala, my hair is Britney from Catwa, and my makeup is Sparkle Mardi Gras from Chelle.  Happy shopping every one!

Introducing Absolution by Taste

Ooooo Lala!  This is the newest lingerie set from Taste, Absoution.  It is very sexy!  It comes in 7 different colors, and comes with the fur bolero, thong, and pasties 🙂  If you haven’t been by Taste yet, they have some very pretty lingerie that is reasonably priced!

My hair is from Elikatira, my skin is from Al Vulo, my lipstick and eye liner is from Chelle, my jewelry is from Alienbear.

52 Weeks of Color~Part Deux~Tea Green

Well, I didn’t find this week’s color, particularly difficult, however photographing it turned out to be the challenging part of this blog.  My hard drive died not long ago, and I have a brand new computer and I am using the new Exodus viewer, both of which are making my life a little difficult LOL.   Since I have my new computer and have started using Exodus, it is much easier for me to wear mesh now and I love it!!!!  This dress is Fling from Chain and Vine.  If you haven’t visited Chain and Vine, they have some very nice mesh pieces.  My hair is Eva from Catwa, my skin is Lyra from Dream Ink, my jewelry is the Lia Crystal set from EarthStones, my eyeliner and eyeshadow are from Chelle.  My shoes are from G Field.  I am done traveling for a while and my computer is fixed, so I will be blogging more!  Have a good week everyone!

52 Weeks of Color-Part Deux~Avacado

Well, the last couple weeks have been extremely busy!  First my hard drive died on my laptop the day before I left for vacation 😦  I was gone for 10 days and then had to buy a new laptop.  What a pain it is to set up a new computer!  This time, I spent a little more money so I could get a better graphics card and hopefully I can get shadows working !  I have started using the new Exodus viewer, and I love it!!!!  It is very easy to use and I can wear mesh on low graphics!  If you are frustrated with your viewer, I highly recommend it.   Anyway…tomorrow I head out of town again (for work this time), so I am trying to get caught up on my posts for Luna’s 52 Weeks of Color Challenge Posts.  Have you ever been to Peqe?  I stumbled across this store in a hunt, and I love it!  I was there browsing around and I came across this sexy, vintagey jacket called Pacific.   I am wearing it with Hucci’s new ribbon leggings.  You can’t see them in this picture, but the leggings have ribbons that criss cross at the ankles with little bows in the back.  Sexy and cute!  My jewelry is the Amida set from Mandala.  My skin is Dream Ink’s latest release, Lyra, worn with Chelle’s Adele eyeliner and Sparkle Eyeshadow.  My hair is Exile’s new mesh hair, Take it off, in Autumn.

52 Weeks of Color~Coral

For this week’s 52 Weeks of Color Challenge, I found an adorable, vintage looking satin dress at Fishy Strawberry.  It is the perfect shade of coral!  I matched it with a vintage gold chain necklace from [glow].  Since it is winter in Ohio (my rl home), my coral dress felt a little summery.  So, I headed to GField to look for a sweater.  I was not disappointed!  I found this adorable, ruffled bolero in ivory.  I also found the perfect pair of coral heels and coordinating leg warmers!  What a perfect shopping day!  My winter skybox is from Magic Nook, my setee is from Awesome Blossom (closing on Jan 15th so having a 50% off sale right now!!), my hair is from D!va, my eyes are Bubblegum from Aphotic Gloom. My skin is Polly from Al Vulo, which I blogged here.  My lipstain is from CheLLe.

You were always on my mind…

Maybe I didn’t love you quite as good as I should have,

Maybe I didn’t hold you quite as often as I could have,

Little things that I should have said and done,

I just never took the time.

 You were always on my mind

 I recently visited a new-to-me store called G Field.  Their designs are very sweet and flattering and very, very reasonably priced!  I am wearing G Field’s ruffle top in purple and blue flowered wrap skirt.  My earrings and bracelet are from the Mysterious set by je suis.  My shoes are Feel Free Wrap by YS&YS.  My eyes are Intense Eyes in Blue by YS&YS.  My hair is Olivia by Sixty Nine.  My skin is Dream Ink’s Isabella, with purple smoke eye shadow by cheLLe.
