Neon Dreams | Powder Pack Genus Unboxing

March 19, 2019

Welp, I am rather late to the party on this one, my bad.  Better late than never right?  Powder Pack for Genus just dropped a few days ago and you can now buy it from their MP or Inworld location.  In this pack we got 5 skin fatpacks, 1 pack of eyebrows, 4 packs of eye makeups, 1 blush pack, 3 freckle/mole packs, 4 lipstick packs, 4 lash packs, 1 eye pack and 1 nose contour pack which makes your nose more defined.  So yeah, we got a LOT of stuff and I go through it all in my unboxing video.


For my pictures, I am wearing a few things from the pack.  This eyeliner is by Spicy Bodyshop and comes with 6 colour variations.  They also made eyebrows, blush and some moles/freckles which all come with Genus appliers, Omega appliers and tattoo layers for bakes on mesh whenever we get that.  My eyes and eyelashes are by Euphoric for Powder Pack and the eyes are my new love.  There are some stunning 2 tone combos in the pack with 12 eye colours in total to pick from, AND you can colour each eye separately which I love.  Lipstick is by Pink Fuel which comes in 8 colours with 5 variations for each.  I use small 2, which is not an overlined lipstick like the large size, and the 2 simple means its more blended at the edged to create a more natural look.



My skin is by Essences and is my new favourite thing.  I am wearing the second palest shade E2 which is close to my normal pale look and just to die for.  The paler shade, E1, has a very grey look to it which would be perfect for vampires or drow characters.  This skin pack was my favourite from the whole box.  I love the look it gives to my face, and the colour tones are perfect for my more fantasy and gothic style which I am deep into at the moment.


All the decor and skybox is by Hilted.  They were on a sci-fi kick recently and made a bunch of funky items.  If you go to their mainstore you will find many more sci-fi things, I just couldn't fit them all into this scene.  So if that is your thing go and check it out.  This entire skybox and decor was 121 Li, so I am totally picking this up soft linked and keeping it for the future.  There is a big window on the skybox which I "Edited Linked Parts" and moved down so it didn't obscure my view while filming.  You would also maybe want to do this if you were using it for a photo backdrop.  It was each to move and easy to put back into place when I was finished.


So that's it, hope you enjoy and if you do you and grab this Powder Pack I hope you love it as much as I do.  I think this one is even better than the first one!

Dark Intentions | Saturday Sale Madness

March 16, 2019

Since I am on this train of trying new things I figured I would give a Look Book video a go, but Second Life style!  Plus I bought a crapload of stuff from Saturday Sale and wanted to share it with you and wouldn't have time to make multiple posts in a day.  So I hope you guys like this way of doing things.  It gives me a good chance to show you a lot of things at one time.


I have primarily been wearing my more gothic female look for over a week now and haven't really wanted to change to be more human.  It initially started out with the 1313 Mockingbird Lane top and Muggleborn skirt that I intended to blog a few days ago and have been wearing for... a long time.  Like really I haven't really changed clothes at all for maybe 5 days.  I have just been really enjoying the aesthetic of it all.  I never ended up buying anything in the Friday sales, nothing really spoke to me, but Saturday Sale she sang right into my ear.


Aswell as the items you can see, I got some magical glowing Ivy from Dysfuntionality, some poses from Foxcity, and the most amazing coffin bed from Violetility.  So yes, I really got a lot from the sale.  My Linden balance however is crying.  I don't care though, as my wee black heart is happy and I will be saving all these outfits so I can go to them as I please.


So I hope you like this take on things.  Feedback would be great if you would so inclined.  Is it a good idea?  Bad?  Need improvement?  You have some better ideas?  Please let me know.  I am always looking to improve and constructive criticism is always helpful, so please watch the video below (it is only a couple of minutes) and let me know what you think!

Enchanted Garden | Syndicate Sunday

March 10, 2019

Today's post is a little different to what I normally do, today is a garden post!  Now, I originally didn't plan to do this, however, my look and the scene just did not match and I decided to separate them into 2 different posts.  I also thought this would be a good chance to talk about my landscaping style, is that a thing?  Because 90% of what I use every time is the same and I wanted to share some of that with you.  So let's get into it.


Now I know I have shown this ground pentagram by Candle and Cauldron a few times, but that is because it is my favourite thing for gardens and has basically become my signature when it comes to landscaping.  I always use it because it comes with a texture HUD that has soil, stone, salt, ice, snow, etc so it can always be changed for any season and I love that.  I also am just naturally drawn to pentagram and pentacles for some reason so of course this in a garden just sings to me.  I always end up teaming it with these Pagan Sculptures by Lore because again, they just sing to me.  There is a few different symbols in the pack but this and the Goddess are my favourites.


For plants, I always use stuff by Dysfunctionality.  Again they come with many textures making the items perfect for any season and I love to be able to do that.  It means I can't have to completely redecorate for each season.  I added in some extra decor from Syndicate Sunday this month, I just knew I had to use these items in an outdoor setting, the sculptures especially, and I think it goes nice together.  The orbs have a few colours you can pick from including a rainbow which is very nice.  The potted plants I used also come with a few variants on the pot colours.


So that is it really.  I know this may not be that exciting to many people, but I feel that I just have this certain style when I landscape and you can always tell if I have done it because it always looks like this.  To me, I find it a very inspiring and relaxing style that I enjoy to look and just be in.  I lived on a platform before I moved in with Sammy and I had made this beautiful garden with a small burrow house and I never really finished the inside of the house because I spent all my time standing in the garden.  I just loved it, and I still do.

Pastel Dreams | Whore Couture & Skin Fair

March 08, 2019

Today's post is inspired by a post on Facebook actually where someone was asking about Pastel Goth fashion.  A great friend of mine Guen tagged me on cause I sometimes blog this time and so does she.  The thing with a lot of fashion, especially goth styles, is it's not what you wear but how you wear it.  It's the attitude behind it that really seals the deal.  Anyways, it inspired me to make this post, and wear some cute pink clothing and "goth it up".




Now oddly this whole thing was basically set around the pink and white decor.  I knew that these would be perfect and that if I mixed in some of my darker home and decor items I could make something cute and dark.  Admittedly, perhaps this whole thing is a little too much on the cute side.  I chose this outfit because the colours matched perfectly with the wings on the chair.  To "goth it up" I went with my pale skin which I have been wearing solidly for a few weeks now, added some of my favourite tattoos and some good old thick eyeliner.


I had a little trouble taking these pictures as I thought my avi looked just too angry.  I got the update for my head and have all the same problems I had before as if nothing has changed and I feel that the eyes look different, so when I get a chance I might have to go in and change my shape a bit.  I think they may be narrower than they were before?  I will have a play with it later and see if I can figure it out.  It may have been animations with the head doing it, I don't know.


So I hope you enjoy this post and try your own hand at taking some cute pastel clothing and turning them into a pastel goth look.

Green & No Ideas | Syndicate Sunday & Level Event

March 05, 2019

Sometimes I have no idea what to write in my posts, and today is one of those.  I am mostly drawing a blank as for something fun and stupid to start this post off with.  So meh.  But anyways, Syndicate Sunday has just started for the March round with items for just L$69 and today I am wearing 2 items from the event.  I already had my pale skin on from last post and I just kind of stuck with it.  I had my male avatar on for days and not changed my female back to her more human self yet.



From Syndicate Sunday I have this jacket by Psycho Barbie, you get a lot of colours for just L$69 and the jacket is pretty nicely done.  Also these earrings, which are some shameless self-promotion, as they are made by me and have 13 colours for L$69.  I teamed these up with some cute leggings from MuggleBorn and boots from Justice.  The boots come with a "loose" fit so they can fit over leggings and tight pants which is absolutely amazing and I know I will be wearing these a lot.  You can also purchase these in male sizes as well.


On my face, I have these rigged piercings by Suicidal Unborn which actually come as a set that you can show and hide for each piece.  There are 15 piercings on the face in total, including eyebrows, nose, cheeks etc.  I only have this 1 lip piercing and Medusa piercing because I don't like too many piercings on at once.  I like having the options there so I can pick and choose which ones I want on each time.


And yeah, I think that is it really.  Hope you enjoy!

The Dragons Den | World Of Magic & Whore Couture

February 28, 2019

Today's post is another showcase of some dragon goodness.  I haven't done one of these in a while and when I saw this skybox I knew I either wanted to do a demon or dragon post.  What sealed the deal was when I got this jewellery, it was so pretty and I knew it would go perfect with my dragon gear.  I tried out one of my skins I would normally wear with my darker looks as opposed to one of my skins I would usually use with my dragon gear and I liked it, so I kept it.



I shared this dress on my Facebook a few days back because it has a naughty little secret!  The top half of the dress that covers the boobies can be turned sheer and show off a little bit of nip.  I love it.  Now obviously I didn't show that off in my blog, but I can assure you that I will be turning that on if I hit a club later.  It also has a styling hud where you can push those parts of fabric to the side to completely expose the boobies AND options to list up the skirt part AND even a little bulge option around the crotch if that is what you are packing.


Now I actually struggled with shoes for this, mainly because I didn't really know what exactly I wanted.  I first had a different tattoo on that was full body but it didn't feel quite perfect.  I instead opted for this one because the way it is formed it almost looks like scales that are shaped in a pattern and I thought it was very fitting.  It is only the upper portion of the body so I thought I may want thigh high boots, but I don't know, I just wanted a little bit of extra detail down there.  So I opted for one of my good old favs.  I have blogged these shoes a few times now and I actually have them in 2 styles, but once I made the roses gold it was just perfect and tied everything together in this elegant and dark dragon inspired look.


Now back to the skybox, it is a lot bigger than what I am showing and has so much detail.  I may have to show it off again sometime.  It has this beautiful fireplace as you can see, and the stonework is just to die for.  There are these large green stained glass panels that are beautiful, and a secret passage into a secret room.  This skybox is a lot of fun and is actually very low Land Impact for the size as it is a 25 x 25 footprint and only 34 Li with 3 rooms.  So you can really get a lot of use out of this one.

Alright, I am going to shut up now as I have rambled on quite a bit in this post, so I hope you like it!

Work Hard & Play Harder | Kawaii Nation & Saturday Sale

February 23, 2019

Alrighty, hello, how ya doin'?  Today's post features an outfit I have been wearing for... about 3 days?  This bodysuit is super cute and I have had my eye on it for a while, I just didn't have the perfect things and scene for it.  I decided to take the plunge and see what I came up with.  I had actually forgotten about these shoes and once I had remembered I had them, everything just fell into place.



The scene was an easy one for me.  I have a rather large collection of office sets now, with this one being my newest.  I think because in RL I am obsessed with stationary, that in SL that is what makes me have so many office sets?  This one has a really cute animal pencil holder, some biscuit tape holders, the little file cabinet and also a shelf with some books on that is not shown here.  I wanted to give the scene my own style and flare so I used this naughtier shelf instead and paired it up with this spanking bench.  I think it all went together quite nicely.


As for finishing off my look, it is actually a pretty simple one.  The hair I think I have only ever wore once and was a group gift last Halloween.  It looks super cute in pink!  Instead of having a bunch of accessories I went for a bold tattoo instead.  I love colourful tattoos and I have quite the collection of them from Dappa.  My face is pretty simple again, I think the only thing I really changed from last time was my lipstick.


So that's your lot, hope you enjoy.
