Catarina Enjoys Some Cocoa

Hey readers! It's been awhile since I've done a skin post but I just had to show off this tan skinnie from a new to the grid store called -Skins-. This pretty little girl is called Catarina and she comes in 4 tones ranging from a very pale to a beachy tan. I'm showing off the Summer tone with its warm glow. Catarina comes complete with 4 brow options, 4 lipstick layers, an eyeliner, and a copy/mod shape (not worn). If you're looking for a new look, be sure to check out -Skins- for some fabulous newness!

I'm also showing off this comfy sweater vest by even.flow that is available at the newest round of Acid Lily Gallery which started today! This warm wool textured vest comes in 4 autumn like tones perfect to finish out this season with. As always, all items are only 70L at Acid Lily so you know you wanna go shopping there.

And since I'm outside in the cool weather, I figured I'd grab a cup of cocoa to warm me up. This cutesy little accessory is the newest gacha prize at Sweet Leonard and comes in a variety of colors and patterns perfect to melt away all your upcoming winter blues. You know you love gachas so check this one out!

It's Some Kind of Madness

So the song title is just some lyrics from a song that's been in my head the last few days. I know not really fitting to the outfit but hey everyone on SL is a little mad in my opinion. *sticks my tongue out* Anyways, I've got newness from Plastik to show off in the form of this rockin mesh boots. They come in tons of different textures and have optional tattoo layer stockings in all sorts of fun patterns that you can wear with them. As you can see, they go well with urban grungy looks like most of Plastik's goodies so be sure to get your booty there and pick some up!

Also rocking the newest Truth hair! Yes, I went and snapped it up for half off this past weekend. I mean I'd be a fool if I didn't, right? I love the sideswept style of this one and the cutesy little barrette. Best of all, you can rock it with the boobehs! Yes, they are making an appearance in this post with the newest dress release from Cynful that can be found at The Boobies Show.

Wynter is Almost Here

Well, the Wynter skin from Belleza made its appearance yesterday for Fifty Linden Friday and I like a lot of people on the grid, just had to have it. It's soft subtle cuteness and rosy cheeks called to me. I added new hair cuteness from LaViere that was also available for FLF and some Fair goodies to bring you this post.

Also, if you haven't been to Decoy, they are having a sale and she's got quite a few freebies out like these adorable jeans I'm wearing. I know I'm probably going to create a little shock here but I prefer old school jeans as opposed to mesh ones. To me, jeans should hug the figure and I don't feel like mesh ones do so if you're like me and like your jeans better this way, you need to grab this fatpack from Decoy. This sale ends on the 30th so hurry over and check it out!

Oh and I know I didn't participate in Pose Appreciation Week but while browsing a few posts that did, I noticed no one appreciated Label Motion so I have to. Ever since Label Motion made their premiere in the sale event, The Fashion Garret, I've always been a fan. Their poses are simple and versatile for showing off mostly any outfit. I love that I can always nab a pack at either TDRB or sometimes Perfect Wardrobe for a discounted price and their group gifts are awesome as well. So I guess I'm appreciating them for my one Pose Appreciation post even though there are many other stores I love as well.

Hair: LaViere (Azure Electricteeth) Darya in Soft Caramel (New!)
Skin: Belleza (Tricky Boucher) Wynter Skin (Past FLF)

Breathing in Snowflakes

So the last few days, I was doing MadPea's The Enchanted Frost Hunt. I admit I'm not patient when it comes to hunts because they are long and I lag and yeah but when I saw these antlers by Vita's Boudoir featured on the MadPea website as one of the prizes, I knew I'd be sticking with this hunt. Let me tell you, this hunt is probably one of the most difficult I've done. You get a story and have to find these little tiny orbs on huge sims based on the clues in the story. Then, you have to go through a maze and make your way up to the princess's room to get your prizes. If I weren't in love with these babies, I probably would have quit but as you can see, I stuck with it and also nabbed some other fantastic prizes as well. If you're looking for something to do, you might want to check out this hunt.

I added to my frosty faun look this breathtaking pale skin that is the newest group gift from Glam Affair. It's a special version of the previously released Roza skin and is in honor of Aida's birthday so happy bday to the owner of Glam Affair and thanks for giving us presents on your special day! If you're not a member of this group, it's only 30L to join and the gifts are well worth it.

Finally, my necklace is newness from Sweet Leonard. I think they are on a deer kick lately because they've been releasing lots of cutesy deer accessories perfect for the upcoming winter months. This pretty necklace comes in three metals and also has matching rings and bracelets available so be sure to check it out.

Goodbye Filthy

*cries loudly* I just got notice that my absolute favorite skin store is closing. As many of you know, Filthy has always been my go to store for skins. I love the subtle makeups and glossy feel of their skins and think they suit my shape best. Although there are many other skin stores that I love, Filthy is always the one I feel most natural wearing.While I'm sobbing over the idea that I'll never get another new Filthy skin, I'd like to point out that all skin packs are on sale for 299L until December 5th with all previous group gifts set out for free. The owner, Alexandra Barcelos, says she's going to be fully focused on mesh now instead so I will still be keeping my eye on her and I can still rock my favorite Filthy skins right?

Most of my look today is newness I've picked up across the grid. Blah has out these adorable dresses that come with boobeh appliers for those of you who like to rock the Lolas and I found a new hair store by the owner of Burley called taketomi via my bestie Kimbra that has lots of cuteness in it.

I'm also rocking these fun poses by Demise of Flight called the Rock Steady Poses. I don't know how she got the fingers to move on their own but I'm loving that there are no hand attachments or extra steps needed to be taken in editing. If you haven't checked out Demise of Flight yet, get your booty over there!

Comfy & Cozy

Hi readers! Just a quick LOTD post with a bit of newness. I'm rocking this cozy partially mesh sweater from Cynful that I've been eyeing up on everyone's blog lately. I paired it with these soft boyfriend pants from Drift. I <3 the vibe of these pants. They are definitely something I'd wear over and over again in RL because not only do they look good, they look comfy and comfort is a big thing to me! Be sure to hit up Cynful and Drift for your own comfy & cozy look.

I'm also showing off LEO-NT's newest group gift. It's this adorable nutshell necklace complete with a cutesy bird inside the glass.

Two fabulous events are starting tomorrow. First up, we've got Unhinged. Unhinged is a huge gacha festival with a skull theme and DJ's spinning beats nonstop for the first 24 hours all for a good cause. 75% of the proceeds taken in from this event will go to helping Eku Zhong get a much needed and serious surgery done on her skull. I've got a looksie at two awesome gacha goodies you can pick up at this event. Geometry has out these adorable prairie like dresses that come in 8 colors from vibrant teal to a more subdued and neutral caramel.

Next up, we've got the Around the World event also starting tomorrow and I've got a sneak peek at these fun vino props with poses that Nani Poses will have out for the event. Once I put on the dress and new Wasabi Pills hair, I felt like an Italian peasant girl in the countryside so these poses worked out well. This little pack comes complete with both red and white wine choices so you can choose the one you're a fan of and 5 cute little poses perfect for posing pretty with your drink choice. Be sure to head over to Nani's booth and check them out as well as all of the other cute European inspired poses she did for this event. I'm pretty sure I saw some pretzels there. :p

Sofia Goes to the Lake

Ahh two blog posts in one day! I'm on a roll but as soon as I tried on this adorable vintage dress from Mirror's Enigma, I couldn't wait to blog it. It comes in 3 pretty colors and includes the complimentary stockings. It's part of the newly released line of clothing that Mirror's Enigma now offers. Since you only know this store for its skins, you'll want to tp over and check out the rest of their clothing releases.

I initially wanted to take these pics in a Western type sim because the dress has that kind of feel to me so I headed over to the Grand Canyon but when I got near the north side, I saw this pretty lake complete with geese and grazing deer and just had to shoot from there. If you're never been to the Grand Canyon sim, you definitely need to check it out because there is lots to see and do there. Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm gonna go toss some bread to these geese. Muahz readers!

Kissy Went Exploring Again!

Last night, I saw SL photographer, Ziki Questi's pics of BCC on Flickr. While I'm a huge fan of the adorable creations Bonne Chance puts out, I never realized how beautiful the sim was so of course, I had to see it for myself. The sim is breathtaking in any windlight and there is so much to explore that I probably spent over an hour there. My favorite part of the sim was the train tracks running down the back end of the sim. I loved the contrast of the warm colors with the cool aqua sky and icy trees. If you haven't been to this sim, pay it a visit.

My outfit is a mishmosh of goodies I picked up across the grid. Censored is having a birthday event and this dress along with 4 other patterns is available for only 100L. I layered it with newness from Maitreya in the form of this soft sweater. This adorable hair is from D!va and is available at this round of Collabor88 and my matching jewelry can be picked up at Perfect Wardrobe and by joining Izzie's group.

Now, I gotta talk about the poses. As much of you can see, I don't have the normal twig thin shape that a lot of avatars have. I like some curves and because I like being a little curvy, I sometimes have issues with poses. Some time ago, I got the idea to try out male poses and they work so well. The ones I'm using for this post are available at Katink and are from their new Cole pack. If I didn't tell you that they were male poses, I bet you'd have never known so if you're a curvalicious chica like me, be sure to head on over to Katink and pick these bad boys up!

You Can Call Me

*waves from sunny Florida* Sorry that I've been MIA for a few days but I'm away on vacation visiting Mickey! Well I'm actually here because my little sister is getting married tomorrow at the happiest place on earth but hey Mickey owns this place so yeah, technically visiting Mickey. Since I'm breathing Disney right now, I figured I'd do a Disney inspired post. Lucky for me, a new round of 60 Mesh Atelier started up and Emporium has out the cutest Minnie Mouse top for it. I slapped on some mouse ears cause what would be a Disney post without them and grabbed these fun cellphone props from Expressive Poses that are also available at 60 Mesh Atelier to bring you this post.

Of course, since I'm sneaking on SL to blog a little, I had to do some shopping as well. I really can't stay away from all of the weekend sales so I stopped over at Izzie's and picked up these brightly colored 80's inspired nails she's got out for Lazy Sunday and this adorable discounted hair that Elikatira just released too. And now, I must head off to do some shopping in RL cause what would be a vacation if I didn't pick up a few souvenirs. If you need me, you can call me. *giggles* Till next time bloggers! XoXo!
