Poppies

I must be the slowest freaking blogger on EARTH! This is an ordinary post. In other words, it is not something that tests the limits of my capabilities.Well, except for the SL glitches. So, why did this post take me 3 days to finish? It makes no sense! Yes, I fuss with styling and trying to see what elements work and don't work. Then I try to find poses that compliment the outfit and scene without being too boring. However, unless I want to spend more time editing, I choose not to use poses that tend to be more interesting. Of course the next step is finding the right angle and making sure every prim (well mesh creation) is in its proper place. Windlight is always an important step too, since it sets the mood and highlights the image. And last but not least, the editing process... I don't know why I am telling you all this. I guess I feel inferior and frustrated, since I see other bloggers complete this whole process quickly, efficiently and much prettier than I do. LOL! So, suffice it to say, I am tired today. I'll stop yapping and talk clothes.

NYU - Bold Bow Shirt Beige & NYU - Hot Shorts Black

This month's FaMESHed is sadly coming to an end. So please hurry-up and grab anything you may have missed. One such ensemble may include this adorably chic 'Bold Bow Shirt' with sexy matching 'Hot Pants', which is from the uber talented NyuNyu Kimono of Nyu. These pieces are sold as separates and come in a ton of brilliant colors. This is one outfit that is just too amazing to miss. Go try on some demos ASAP!
Jin Elfan of Belgravia, just released these perfectly sleek 'Patent 120'heels'. They are configured to be worn with your Slink medium high mesh feet, which is another reason why I love them. The combination is perfect, especially with Slink's new 'avatar enhancement' system. The heels come in vast array of alluring colors. They also come in a spiked version too! Unfortunately, the Belgravia/Leverocci main store is not up at the moment, but you can grab them on Marketplace - the link is below. 
Speaking of Slink's new 'avatar enhancement' system, Izzie Button just released 'Sock Appliers' to go with it! They come in a lots of colors, neutrals (basics) and colors, and are applied via HUD. They are meant to be worn with Izzie's 'sheer tights'. As you can see, the look is phenomenal. I do hope Izzie releases more of these tights and socks (hint hint).

NYU - Bold Bow Shirt Beige & NYU - Hot Shorts Black - 2

Glam Affair's long awaited 'Cleo' skin line is FINALLY here! Yay! Cleo is absolutely STUNNING! Plus, she comes with a zillion wear options! She comes in 12 beautiful make-ups and a 'clean' skin. She also comes in 6 gorgeous skin tones. Each make-up comes with a choice of 6 brow colors (black, dark brown, light brown, dark blonde, light blonde and red), which are embedded into the the skin. Now here are all the options (I think): 2 lash tattoos, a definition and skin pore tattoo, 3 freckle tattoos, 3 nose tattoos, 3 glossy lip tattoos, a no gloss lip tattoo and 5 brow shapes! I seriously can not imagine asking for or needing anything more! aida Ewing really did an amazing job and definitely listens to her customer's needs. Not to mention, caters to them too. You have to try on a demo NOW, so you can see what I am talking about!

Glam Affair - Cleo - Jamaica - 07 C , "LoQ Hair"  Beer - Chocolate Copper, LaGyo_Poppy headpiece Red & IKON Destiny Eyes - Storm

Gia Pawpad, of "LoQ Hair" has been releasing the most fabulous new mesh hairstyles lately! I am in love with this new style called, "Beer". I also love the fact that she names all her hairstyles after drinks! Beer is so nicely rendered with yummy textures. I adore the side part and swept bang. The relaxed waves make this one smart style. This is another creation that you have to demo. Be sure to check out Gia's other new styles too!
Gyorgyna Larnia of LaGyo, recently created this exclusive and divine 'Poppy headpiece' for the FINESMITH SUMMER BOUTIQUE! It is available with red, yellow or blue poppies and just 200L per hat. I don't  think I want to to ever to take it off. LOL!
If  you are curious about my decor, please stay tuned for my next post. The 'Garden Cafe Table & Chairs' are a 'RFL Home & Garden Expo' exclusive from Winter Thorn and FrankLee Anatra of {what next}.
