A Very Lazy Sunday

Hi fellow bloggers and blog readers! Today has been exactly what the post says, a very lazy Sunday. I stayed up late last night in order to be one of the first to score all these fabulous finds I got from the Lazy Sunday event and haven't done much of anything today! I've never really visited all the stores in the event before, just went to my favorites but last night, I decided to check them all out. From skins to earrings to outfits, the deals are abound. I think there is a little something for everyone's style but I'm just gonna show off my favorites today.

When I saw this skin, I knew I had to have it for the days I want to be a blonde. It's so girly with its bright pink lipstick and rosy cheeks. I love the tan and how it makes my eyes pop. CandyDoll has done an excellent job and I know that they just released a new skin today so go snatch this bargain up and check out their new release.

Then, while browsing all of the other Lazy Sunday stores, I found this absolutely beautiful light blue outfit at Cynful. This shade is my second favorite color in the whole world so I had to spring for it. The detail on the skirt is beautiful and the hoodie looks so comfy casual. Again, I just had to have it. Lol! I'm sure you all sympathize with me in the same way. I have been lagging pretty badly the last few days so I couldn't browse this store like I wanted to but I'll definitely be back to check out more of their merchandise. Anyways, it's time for me to do something more productive with my day. Be sure to check out this week's Lazy Sunday event!

52 Weeks of Color Challenge: Emerald

This week's color in the 52 Weeks of Color Challenge is Emerald. When I hear the word emerald, I think of Ireland and St. Patty's Day so what better place to take some pictures than Ireland's own Claire Castle. I've never been to Ireland before but found the castle to be pretty in a simple kind of way and it fits in nicely with my pictures.

As soon as I saw that the color for this week was emerald, I was happy. It's such a pretty color, rich and vibrant. Alas, my happiness was soon cut short when I realized I couldn't find anything I liked enough to blog until I decided to check out the store closing sale at Phoenix Rising. As you all know, I'm a new blogger and haven't broadened my Second Life shopping horizons until recently. I'm super sad that I didn't know of this store before I started blogging because the things I found in this store were absolutely breathtaking. I probably dropped like 250 lindens which I know doesn't sound like a lot but when you realize that absolutely everything in the store is 25 lindens, you see that it is a lot! Since I fell in love with the designs here, I decided to see if they had anything in emerald and was ecstatic to find this beautiful satin gown. This gown is exactly what I had in mind for emerald so enjoy!

Cheap but Cute

Yesterday I randomly received a notecard from a store saying they were closing and that everything was 30 lindens so of course, my interest was piqued. I don't remember shopping at Myth before or subscribing to their mailing list but I wish I would have known about this store before the owner decided to give up designing clothing for Second Life. The clothes I found ranged from club hopping sexy to simple and cute. I absolutely fell in love with these sailor shorts and snatched them right up but sadly my inventory decided to eat them so I went back today and picked up another pair. I'm happy paying double for them.

.After shopping at Myth, my shopping switch was on so I searched sale under events or was it classifieds...oh well, I can't remember, and found out that a store called Urban Girl was having a 90% sale so I tped on over and found some cute cheap outfits that are perfect for those who are newer to Second Life and don't have the money to spend yet. The shirt I'm wearing in the picture below was part of an outfit that is going for only 10 lindens now at the store. Urban Girl seems to be just starting to designs skins and have quite a few featured for 10 lindens as well. While I found the face detail beautiful, the coloring on the rest of the body looked off to me so I decided not to feature them but again, they are probably good for our newer residents. Anyways, till next time! Hugz!

A Little Bit of Everything

The other day while wandering around, I stumbled upon the store Ducknipple and absolutely loved the majority of their merchandise. I tped my friend because they had an off color freebie in their lobby and then we noticed that they had a whole discounted/free section. Of course being the savvy shopper I am, I decided to check it out. The stuff that Beanster Potato is offering for free or extremely low prices is well worth more. I picked up loads of goodies and even tp'd my partner in to pick up some of the guy stuff they had. One of the finds I found was an 8 pack of 80's cartoon tanks for only 25 lindens!!! The My Little Pony one I am wearing in the pics is just one of the totally cute tanks offered in this pack.

Then, while reading one of my fellow fashionista's blogs (Thanks Lashae!), I found out that one of my new fave skin lines, Filthy, had a skin featured at the Chic Boutique Discount store so I zoomed over there and picked it up for the low price of 90 lindens. This skin is so sweet and aptly named Nala's Bubblegum. While at Chic Boutique, I found these Frenzy jeans that go perfectly with my new pony tank so I just had to splurge on them too. Top this outfit off with one of my old favorites like Khush bangles and this totally cute gacha prize from Awesome Blossom and you get a little bit of everything.

I've been known to come up with crazy ideas and run with them. So far on SL, I've opened a clothing franchise, a detective agency, and a photography studio that have all failed miserably. When I told my partner my plans to start a fashion blog, I expected him to say it was stupid and that I shouldn't try but he's been supportive so far. Well as supportive as a guy can be about fashion! He's actually expressed an interest in my blog and is probably the only person who reads it daily. *Smiles* Anyways, about a week ago, he asked me if he could take my picture for a blog posting so here it is. Sorry it's so late hun but you know me, I procrastinate big time!

Now of course being the control freak gf I am (yes, I admit it!), I had to snap a pic of both of us together for this blog entry as well. I think we look so cute together. Don't you agree? :D

52 Weeks of Color Challenge: Indigo

I've been feeling a little under the weather these last few days so this week's 52 Weeks of Color Challenge color goes well with how I am. I think my color is a little light on the Indigo side but from what I've seen of other Second Life fashionists blogs, the color seems to vary a lot. Anyways, I hope you enjoy my version of Indigo.

Oh, I noticed that my fingernails aren't attached in the pics right before I was going to publish this post. Don't you just hate when that happens? Next time, I'll be sure to keep them glued in place. :D

As a new blogger, it's getting to be hard to find cool locations to take pics. I used to be one of those people who wandered the showcase SIM's vigilantly but now with RL, I am finding that there is so much in SL to see that I can't possibly see it all. I had an idea to take some pics for this entry in a dark urbanish big city place but when I searched city, I stumbled upon Gotham City. My partner is kind of addicted to DC Universe at the moment so I decided to check it out.

Oops! Wait a minute, I'm supposed to be talking fashion here. Aren't I? Silly me, I forget sometimes. As some of you know, I'm a huge fan of Truth hair and loved the look of Courtney but have been trying to broaden my spending horizons so have avoided purchasing it until today when temptation wore out and I went and splurged. I think it goes perfectly with this new skin I picked up from Filthy. For the low cost of 199 lindens, you join the group and can pick up this absolutely adorable skin that comes in three skin tones and two different makeups. Anyways, I'm off now because I heard that Khush is having a 60% sale on some of their older merchandise. Keep you posted. XoXo!

P.S. Oh, I forgot to tell you, I found this store called ::TOXIC BISH:: that sells tattoo eyelash layers for only 80 lindens!! Totally worth it if you are like me and don't have the patience for prim eyelashes.


Hair: >TRUTH< Courtney-sandlewood
Makeup: ::TOXIC BISH:: Eyelashes Make Up Tattoo

A Little Late but....

Yes, I know I'm a little late in showing this outfit I promised to feature a couple days ago but I was RL busy so had to put it on the back burner until now. Last week while exploring, I came across the store, **[Riddle]**. I've never been to it before but the designer's brightly colored outfits caught my attention so I browsed a little and joined their update group with plans on visiting their main location at a later time. The next day, I received a notecard from the update group saying that they were invited to join the Designer Showcase and had created a special outfit at the promo price of 99l. I opened the picture and was pleasantly surprised to see an adorable winterish dress and coat with coordinating tights so I zoomed over to the Designer Showcase store which is on the same SIM as Glam Affair and purchased **[Riddle]**'s newest design. Now, prim dress attachments are one of my biggest SL pet peeves as I'm sure they are for a bunch of you so I was ecstatic to see that **[Riddle]**'s dress had a prim piece that blended better than 90% of stuff out there. Because of this, I will happily be buying from them again especially if they keep putting out adorable stuff like this. Btw, you get three color options for the tights.

On the other side of the camera...

While I was shopping for hair the other day, I joined the group and was happily surprised to see their Christmas gift still available. It's a cute braid hairstyle with a knit cap that is color changeable. My partner said I looked French when I was wearing it so of course, that made me want to go visit the Eiffel Tower. Here is a pic of me on top of the Eiffel Tower. I used to love this SIM but haven't been there in a bit. You should definitely check it out!

After I was done visiting Paris, I decided to do a little more shopping and found some great makeup at alaskametro<3 that the owner is giving out as a freebie for her store opening as well as some cute silver earrings from Talisman for only 25l.

As for the title of this blog, it's because of this pic. I'm always taking pictures of myself so I thought it'd be fun to take a pic of me taking a pic to show you what happens on the other side of the camera.

Keep your eye out for my next posting. I just found the Designer Showcase store and it has some great deals that I'll be blogging about tomorrow probably. Au revoir for now!

My partner's been on a turquoise kick the last few days. Telling me how he'd love to see me wearing something sexy in turquoise so today I decided to do a little shopping. Ok, who am I kidding? A lot of shopping!! It all started with that SLuicide Girls blog. I saw some sexy skins on them so I had to go check out the store they mentioned. Little did I know that the store had just opened. I have to say that the designers of Illusory have outdone themselves. I was in heaven trying to choose one skin but finally settled on this Winter one in Warmth. I just love the bright lipstick and dark eye makeup. After I was done buying skin, I received a notice from Amacci saying that all colorpacks in their store were on sale for 85 l so of course, I had to drop by there and pick up a few new styles. Top all that shopping off with a mini splurge on the Marketplace for some sexy turquoise lingerie and new poses and you have some ammunition to tease your partner with. Here are some pics of me waiting for him to log on. Hope you enjoy! Muah!
