Also very sweet this Milena preview skin from Mynerva!! Yes Mynerva is back. After a long break to get some things in order Rhapzody Wilde and the crew are back with a preview of the newest skin they are working on. I love the fresh face look of these skins, they are some of my favorite in all of sl. Right now in the store get this skin and a couple of others along with some makeups as a group gift. The group is not free but for 50L, a good investment, even if you leave the group this skin alone is worth that and even more. If you stay in they are good to the group and you can look forward to many other awesome gifts.
Also big thanks to incredibly talented friend Kurenai Jun for posing with me for this post!!
Well this was a short one, valentines is over now but you can still feel the love with these generous gifts!! Get out there and check out these amazing shops!!

Quick run down on the hunt: Lasts to 29 February, obviously this year. Organised by Deprived Nation (sponsored by Razorblade Jacket, KKMAD and American Bazaar) and using Razorblade Jacket as a starting point. From there, the paths diverge as boys and girls follow their own independent trail through 50 odd stores each. It's well organised with an online SLURL and hint list.
It's the 'or' in the title that kicked me into action... Why this constant choice between fem or male... what about 'both' and 'neither'? *Feels the two boats under my feet quickly drift apart and, without middle ground, falls splash in the wet* Anyway, there's not much else to do but to take a ride in each boat in turn and see what happens.
I thought that for this first instalment, I would focus on stuff from a strictly 'correct' gender pow. For a second, why not revisit all the stuff and explore gender blurring?

Isn't is funny how the very same people that can make you feel the best can also hurt you the most. I suppose that is why it is said that there is a thin line between love and hate. That sentiment is expressed clearly I think by this Sometimes I Love/Hate You Tattoo by S (and) P available now at Perfect Wardrobe for a cool $90L. Also a super find this LoveMeSweater by paper.doll here in hot pink but a gift in 2 colors for the Zombie Popcorn Hunt going on until Feb 15th. While you are there check out the clearance sale going on at paper.doll , some really awesome stuff $50L and less. The Alyx Skin here in Nice a gift from Pink Fuel for the with love hunt, was a surprise to still find it out, if you get there before it is gone you can scoop this up for just $10L. Wrapping this up my new favorite shorts the hipster jeans shorts from NV Madworld this new to me shop had some great things, a couple of gifts and even nice stuff for the guys!!
The End.... lol

Lingerie is big this time of year. So it is no surprise that you will be seeing it all over the place for a while. That being said what better place to start than with this amazing new Joan set by Insolence. One of my most favorite shops in all of sl, Camilla Yosuke's soft, feminine designs and rich textures have made her a personal favorite of mine since I started. This basic corset and triangle panty set is made with the finest lightly embroidered satin accented by delicate hand made lace. The details are divine as seen in these stunning pictures ( above and below) by Kurenai Jun. To get a better look at this picture so you can really appreciate it click here.
Also very detailed, this dazzling burning heart necklace by ChaosPanic&Disorder, has fine metal scroll work sprinkled with crystals, surrounding a gemstone heart. It's exquisite design further accentuates the finer points of the lingerie. A gift for the upcoming Hearts Ablaze Hunt, going on Feb11- March 3rd. Brought to you by Greatest Love featuring over 100 generous gifts from talented content creators all over the grid, it is not to be missed!! Find out more about it here
The finishing touches are this soft, romantic Pom Pom Girl hair from Pomme D'Amour (subscribo gift) and sweet HappyValentine group gift skin from Jesylilo (free to join) with classic vixen red lips. Red carrying through to the Solid nails by Finesmith Designs and my ever present and trusty GOS Pimp your Pumps.
Last but not least I have to mention World's End Garden, the ethereal backdrop for this post. Always changing and lots to see. Well that is all for this time. Thanks for reading !!!

The gift mentioned above is the pair of the blue version of the DOOM boots which are a sYs new release. i.e. other colours are available in the store. Fortunately the resulting outfit made me feel rather on top of the world, otherwise I would be rather shaky balancing this precariously close to the edge trying to look cool.

This lovely skirt set has the soft feel of angora with classic simple styling. It is a group gift from Aso!. Join the group (no fee) and find it in the notices before it is gone..
The Corinna skin group gift from Al Vulo!, provides the ideal base for this classic look. I love the parted lips ,and the make up just seems to pop. These Dorthy Cat Eye Glasses from PurpleMoon are are so detailed, and really add to the overall look. It is a gift (#7) in the cherries on top hunt that is on until Feb 15th. There are 10 Cherries hidden all over the shop. You can pick them up for free and they have some gorgeous shoes and jewelry as well. Don't miss out on these.
Oh and let's not forget to mention, the styling of this outfit is simple but it does have some nice accents. Such as this bow on the back of the sweater. Further accented by the pretty please hair from Shag, a very generous gift you can pick up from the subscribo. The Gos pimp your pumps- point platform shoes are a fantastic staple for any wardrobe. I can hardly take them off. They are color change and have a choice of accents including this heel bow and others. Not Free but seriously worth every $L. Check them out on the market place and you can see my review of these. Everyone should have a pair of shoes from the pimp your pumps line.
Well that is my post for the moment and I have more to come.... Good to be back and see you out there on the grid.

Right now, I'm caught by the lure of big, bright and colourful. Think large plastic pieces. It was the piano rings two posts ago that caught me, I think. Inworld, where everything is just pixels, why do we stick to 'precious' materials? At least that's what I asked myself after finding this heap of goodies.
It's the weekend, so it's time to put on some lipstick and find a party! Granted, I'm not especially familiar with make-up so it's not the neatest lipstick you'll ever see, but the stubble made a reasonable guideline so not too bad. Lucky for me it's Mardi Gras time and anything goes, so once more I can unleash my inner beauty and hit the town.
Yep, that's the theme for FLUX this month so it's time to party, and thanks to the good folks at 22769 I could have some sparkly fun. And feathery. And... well, maybe it's best to let the picture do the talking...
Sure, it's a dress. But look at it sparkle! Honestly, who can resist the sparkles? It's like I ran naked through a sequin factory - and then went back with a dress and a pot of glue. And a pair of scissors too because boy does that dress have a slit for some thigh flashing. Luckily the outfit comes with a mask too, which is very handy because you want to stay anonymous while plucking all those feathers from some exotic bird. I have no idea what type of bird it is, but I'm guessing it's rare and you won't win friends with some people by making it bald. Although Mardi Gras is mainly in warm places so maybe it's not too bad.
Now 120L will get you that dress and mask, with all the sparkly tickly trimmings. But no footwear. Which is a crying shame since it really is crying out for some sexy legwork. Luckily though, you don't have to go too far. Well, actually you do since you need to go all the way back to the real 22769 store, but you don't have to spend any more money since they have pink crocodile skin boots as a hunt gift! Grab a hint from the wall near the landing point and get looking because really, you need crocodile skin boots! Or, spend an extra 190L and buy them in a range of colours. Or, still spend the 190L and get them in black snakeskin which is subtler and just as cool.
See, my able assistant is not just there to provide you with a better view of the feathers, she provides some contrasting footwear fun too!
So there you have it, not just sparkles but skin too! And weirdly for one of my posts, only about a third of it is actually mine... I guess I must have a fever... Mardi Gras Fever!
