Sweet : Tales from Mother Goose’s

02/26/2013

I love my newest skin from Mother Goose’s. Cordelia fit me like a glove straight out of the box. She is clear skinned translucent perfection both characteristics which I love.

Cordelia’s nose seems to be a little bit more defined than some other MG skins particularly between the eyes. The lips are lovely and just a little bit matte.  I took my ‘hide lashes’ alpha layer off to give a little more of a natural look without having to add a liner or to take away from the quirky little dolly lashes that Cordelia is sporting.

I went for the lighter tone A pack. Five make-ups plus all five skins with teeth, shape and two eyebrows layers.  I can’t say I`m a fan of the tattoo eyebrow layers. They look too much like drawn in brows for my liking so I`m happy the skin’s brows are in the lighter colour.  The actual brows on the skin are really soft, not too thin or thick.  Not completely sold on the teeth, but I tried out some of MG`s teeth tattoos and they work fine.

I`m so happy that MG has the free breast tattoos out.  I use the Upper 2 A cleavage tattoo. ‘A’ being the name of the skin tone.  The breast was always something I was willing to compromise on but the overall look of the skin is soooo much more improved with these simple tattoo layers.

Yes, Natali feels very at home in this skin indeed.

Sweet : Of Kimono and Frost

01/17/2013

So it`s pretty cold here this week in the old Toe-key-o.  Snowy times and fun for all with a good dose of slip, slidin’ madness.

Snow fell on Monday, Coming of Age day.  Girls wore boots with their kimono to trudge through it all.  They made a pretty picture in bright coloured kimono against the background of snow and slush, but somehow the fluffy white stoles draped round their shoulders didn`t seem to be keeping them all that warm.  In SL we can traipse all about the snowy place in our tabi and zouri with never a thought of frostbite.

This kimono is from 1mm (ichi miri) by mirin Shippe.   It’s fully mesh with the obi belt being non rigged mesh. It comes with both tabi socks and zouri sandals. Mesh has been very kind to the kimono wearing in SL.  No more ugly system skirt bums or wayward prim skirts.  The sode or sleeves still move about with your AO but that’s acceptable.

I only have one AO specifically crafted for kimono.  I aquired it in 2008! and the anims are a little dated but it still does the job and is still available from Bushido in Bakumatsu. Otherwise I`ve been using ‘Erika’ from SLC by manmoth Nishi, my favourite at the moment.  The anims are smooth while a little cutesy there’s no big arm movements.

I love this hair from LaViere.  It’s called Natalia. So close! :p  The pastels and pastel dips are just so lovely.  The pink was pretty but I went for the Mint instead.  Yummy.

I know it’s a little late for year end reviews, but Mother Goose’s Cookie and Charmy were really my go to skins and I think will continue to be so for some time to come. Fresh and youthful these are beautiful base skins for mixing and matching with all kinds of lips and eye make-ups.

Sweet : Love Letters. Send Me Some?

01/06/2013

I got dressed today and this is what happened.

Love Letters Up2

Gorgeous Celoe.  It`s usually too expensive for Nat.  But I fell in love with the tiny little boob covers on this.  The way it puckers and tucks. A long torso is nice.

Nat grew especially for it. Puckers… I like that word.

Love Letters Up3

I love Cae.  Simple, classic and just like the name of the bracelet from the set Timeless.  The scripts are….. slow.  Be patient.

The necklace is called Love Letters. I choose ‘N’.  Beautiful must have accessories.  I`m in love with Cae.

Love letters Up 1

I`m also in love with this skin from Essences.  My first from this brand. Perfectly timely given its on offering at The Dressing Room Fusion for just 70L a makeup.  I slipped so easily into this it made me so happy and it all came together quite nicely.

~For all the primates I`ve loved before~

Sweet : In a bottle

10/25/2012

You know what I love most about the  Dreamy Genie Bottle from Trompe Loeil?  The little tinkle sound the lights make when you turn them on and off.   So easily pleased am I!

My small protected waterfront plot now actually has something on it and if I pull the draw distance down nice and low to block out the neighbours it’s very atmospheric indeed.  I also love the little table top, TP version.  Very handy.  Just pop the LM in and you`re ready to go.

If I was the kind of girl people kept in bottles… I wouldn`t mind one like this at all.

Isn`t she beautiful?  I think so.  Finally got excited enough to get dressed with the combination of Heim in Latte from BCC, and this beautiful little baby doll from Tee*fy.  Everything I`m wearing is just perfection.  From the tips of my ears to the toes of my beautiful G Field boots.

Welcome to Friday.

Pink Fuel – Kumi

09/14/2012

I`ve been wearing Kumi, from Pink Fuel for a few days now and I`m liking her more and more all the time.  I think I`ve found the right, ‘Natali’ shape for her and she’s starting to fit nicely.

The Pure/Defined make-up of Kumi comes with creased and non creased lid versions.  I think this is just fabulous and a great option!  I feel I could play with the eye sliders just a little bit more to really take advantage of the non crease version but for the moment I like the more rounded eye look just fine.

Non-Creased | Creased

There are eight different tones to choose from. I`ve gone for the Ivory.

She`s flawless and youthful but not quite as youthful as Elly.  So if you were one of those that thought Elly was too young you will probably like Kumi a lot more.

This, the inclusion of the creased and non-creased versions in the Pure pack and the eight different tones to choose from I think, will make her very versatile and more widely worn.

Kumi comes with over 40 different lipsticks each with a teeth version.  They’re all beautiful and there’s lots to play with.

One thing I wasn’t sure about was the teeth.  I absolutely loved the teeth/lipsticks that Elly came with and wore them endlessly on many different skins.   I wear my lips really narrow and the teeth could be just a little bit smaller for my liking but, again, they are starting to grow on me.   Some of the lip tattoos from Elly work great with Kumi, too. I think they look cute.  What do you think?

Kumi is Pink Fuel perfection and I`m really going to enjoy playing with her!

Entitled – Collabor88 Sept or Those Were the Days, My Friend. I Thought They’d Ended.

09/13/2012

Ok so, I`m slowly recovering from the long summer.  It’s still bloomin’ hot, but all being well a typhoon is on it’s way to change all that.  We’ll see.

The first thing I did this week was check out the September round of Collabor88.  Lots of girly, soft things that fit in nicely with the theme of ‘Timeless’.  Like this lovely mesh dress from Milk Motion.

I just love the lace panel on the front.  You may have to add some sag to your ‘orbs’ to avoid the alpha showing. It’s hard to see through the panel with this colour but it’s a delicately feminine touch to this otherwise simple and rather plain dress.  Yes, lovely.

Lovely!

Something that is not Timeless however, is system skirts…

I was too eager to get this Little Black Dress from Nylon Outfitters, and should have looked more carefully at the vendor.  Naughty Nat!

I`m such a fan of mesh that it’s just hard to remember sometimes that not everyone is on board. Although I don`t personally know any of those people (or they don`t log in anymore… :p)  To my credit, however, nowhere on the vendor is it mentioned that this is a system skirt… disappointed.   In the same vein I am let down by the jagged edges on the sleeves.  Great idea, great variety of styles on the vendor but for this version at least, poor execution and not the level of quality I was expecting. Not even for the Collabor88 price….

No….

I am though, quite taken with the skin from Auxiliary, ‘Love Skin’ – Timeless.  At first I was really turned off by the demo. It has template lines all over it.  I found it really distracting and I think I bought it in the end going on the vendor pic rather than the demo…. Dangerous, I know.  But I like it. I like this fair tone, love the brows and will probably wear it for grown up ladylike occasions. 🙂

Leave the Key on The Counter

08/28/2012

I’ve missed my little blog!  I did not, however, miss the sale at coldLogic!  Happy day indeed.

I also rushed to grab this skin from JeSyLiLo for Lazy Sunday.  I think I like it.  The vendor, like all the vendors in this store look sooooo cute.

 

 

There’s a little bit of pixel nose happening. See, right beside the nostrils.  The noses in general are either  alittle bit bulbous or buttony, but it’s ‘a look’ and a great one when it works, and while my nose shape has never fit naturally with JeSyLiLo skins, I tweaked some sliders and I really like it.

The brows are not too dramatic but still strong.  I layered a Fishy Strawberry lipstick over the top and with my Mozz Lashes I really like the look.  All for what? L$75.  I`ll be taking closer notice of JeSyLiLo I think.

I`m posing on the FLF Trunk from What Next.  I like the animations in this.  Bit different from the same old sits.  Hair is fit for a princessy goodness from Exile, and my coldlogic spoils for a grown-up Nat look.
