Manly Makeovers

Since Kaiden has been working to give her SL hubby a  makeover I figured I could help out mine and give him at least a little bit of an update. Rathe didn’t get the full on makeover but settled on new hair and new eyes for himself as well as a shape edit. He thought it would be nice for me to use for the blog so here is my (semi) made-over sweetie and his best buddy Mark with a new look.

52 Weeks of Color Challenge – #9 Dandelion

 I love the color swatch Luna gave us even though dandelions don’t usually bring me much joy. It’s getting me excited for spring, which hopefully is right around the corner. With an unusually warm winter I am more than ready to ditch the heavy coat and bask in some sun. Of course winter had to get one more jab in sending roughly 7 inches of snow yesterday. Bleh.

This post has been particularly challenging not just with trying to find the right yellow color to represent dandelion. This is draft attempt #3 for me today. Ugh! My cat is laid out on the desk next to me and keeps knocking over my router to which the net cord is loose. (I still love him in spite of that.) Add to that being at a total loss of what look to create this week. But Luna saved the day! Our awesome challenge coordinator and owner of !bang poses sent out this preview of her creations for the Festival of Sin which included this lovely flower pose prop. Since nothing I had tried so far was coming together well I went with a fairy theme as pictured in the prop photos. And since Kaiden’s home was already set up with the lovely dandelion field for her WoCC photo this week I borrowed that for my spring fairy pic.

52 Weeks of Color Challenge – #8 Dark Raspberry

I’m feeling very meshy lately so this is a very mesh-full post. I love this hair from elikatira. I’ve been seeing it on the feeds and plurk and decided it was high time I grabbed some for myself.

This top/dress thing is from Maitreya and is also mesh. I’m normally a standard size small but with the baggy bottom on this I decided to use the XS since it didn’t make my hips look as wide. Of course I ended up needing to size my boobs down to 48 to make it work but yay for cleavage layers that make it look like I don’t have a tiny chest! That’s all for now since I’m pooped from mesh over-excitement. Til next time! *hugs*

Little Miss Cupid

Happy Valentine’s Day! Today is the 12th and final day of Gogo’s lingerie challenge which I did most of. Yay me!

Typically, I’m not a big supporter of V-day. (I love the idea of a day of romance, I just find it over-commercialized.) The past couple of years, Rathe and I have had a quiet dinner at home or we go out the weekend after to avoid all the uber-coupley crowds and to avoid spending loads of cash. This year it’s especially difficult since it will be the first year since we started dating RL that I will not see my valentine. But all the more reason to do a girl’s night right?

But back to the challenge. I felt a need to go all super red & white with this post which is why I saved this pretty heart lingerie from Blacklace for V-day. Therathe was going to be cupid too in his red boxers but an archer pose was nowhere to be found. Well, I hope you all have a wonderful day whether you’re with a special someone or not! XOXOX

Moments in Love

Day 11 of 12. Wow that went by fast! I’ve  really enjoyed doing challenge posts, but I’m ready for something a little different. The past few days have given my poor fried brain a break and having a routine blog post is rather nice.

The original title of my post was a lot more “suggestive” if you will, but late last night my internet went out while I was working on it and everything poofed so I gave up and went to bed. 😦 But I think this title seems to fit with the picture a lot better. It’s not necessarily a sexually suggestive picture even if the pose is named “Before”.
