The Piano Man…

The Piano Man...

Did you see all the sexy and romantic things popping up all over the grid these days? Yup, Valentine’s Day is definitely coming.

First, this beautiful skin from Belleza, called Mae. She’s out at the ‘Love is in the Air’ event, which runs from the 7th until the 14th of this month. She comes in three different skintones and there are 6 make-ups to be had. There’s something about the way Shyla makes the lips on her skins. I can never get enough of them. Scroll down to see all the make-ups!

Also, this sexy pose is one of the new releases out at Romp’s Fresh event from !Bang Poses. Be sure to check them all out, because they are all very nice and perfect for some sexy bedroom pictures!

I added these beautiful new earrings and ring to class it up. They’re from Empyrean Forge and are out at We ❤ RP for this month. The set is called the 'Heritage Collection' and comes with a HUD to change the color of the stones. Go see how beautiful it is!

Kissed by a rose…

Kissed by a rose...

I guess it’s pretty obvious I was inspired by roses today… With Valentine’s Day coming up, I felt like my blog could use some romantic elements. And let’s be honest… Nothing beats a beautiful bouquet of red roses! Okay, chocolates are very nice too.

But the main reason for this post is to show of Belleza’s new Celeste skin, which is out now at Uber. I already used her for my previous blogpost, but I felt she should have a close up as well. Celeste comes in Pale, Medium and Sunkissed tones and there are 10 different make-ups to be had. The skins all fit the Celestial theme of this month’s round, really well. Be sure to check out Celeste. She’s very beautiful!

(After finishing this collage, I realized I used the wrong brow color in one of the close ups! Oops!)

Also, a new round of Enchantment has begun on the 1st. The theme is ‘Beauty and the Beast’. Some people might disagree with me, but I really like how Enchantment makes you visit every designer’s store. I noticed that I bought from some of the designers before, but that I had never actually been to their store. This pretty necklace is from May’s Soul and is one of the prizes you can get with a full stampcard. For more information about this event, check out the website here.

Do you ever have weeks that go nothing like you wanted them to go? This week has been one of those for me… For instance, this blogpost was supposed to get done last Tuesday. Well… That didn’t go very well as you can see.

A very special thanks to Maddy for posing with me! We’ve been wanting to do this for quite a while now and it was so much fun! Thank you so much!! ♥
Unfortunately I have not enough time to get into too many details today. All the credits are below and as always happy shopping!!

Let’s watch the last snow fall…

Let's watch the last snow together...

When Christmas is over and the new year has begun, winter must turn into spring if you ask me. So when I woke up this weekend and I found (a lot of) fresh snow in my garden, I was not too happy. It’s pretty and everything, but I’m so done with feeling cold all the time! That’s why I thought it would be the perfect time to take my last winter picture… And watch the last snow fall.

Uber opened its doors yesterday. They changed the opening date from the last of the month to the 25th of each month. The theme for this round is ‘Celestial’ and there are a lot of amazing items out there. One of them is this pretty hair from Truth. I love this little starry clip, which is an add-on for the ‘Esther’ hair.

The Seasons Story is coming to an end. Only a few days left to get your items. One of the things you can find there is this amazing and cute ‘Blanket Fort’ gacha set from Sari-Sari. When I saw the add on Flickr, I knew I wanted to have it. But I only just got around to buying it this week. And I’m so happy I did! Definitely worth your lindens!
I added a few cute gacha items from HAIKEI, placed these amazing lamps from Schadenfreude in the tent and put a cat on the sofa behind us. I thought this was a perfect farewell winter moment. Now let’s hope it will stop snowing already!

Got a tattoo and the pain’s alright…

Got a tattoo and the pain's alright...

From flower girl to girl with tattoos. Yes, I’m all over the place…

The Liaison Collaborative opened its doors a few days ago. This month’s theme is ‘Classic Romance’. One item you can find there is this beautiful cigarette with holder from [Kunst]. It comes with a hud to change all the colours on the cigarette and the holder. You can give your whole cigarette a make over to match any outfit. And it also comes with 3 smoke options, plus the option to turn the smoke off. I’m gonna keep this one attached to my lips for a while!

I’m really excited about this hair… It’s from MOON and it’s available at Project Limited, which means that if you want it you better get there before it’s gone! Only a limited amount of these are available. The hair comes with the hat and I just love how it sits on my head. Go see if it’s still there!

Flowers in your hair…

Flowers in your hair...

Today is Blue Monday… But I feel like this entire month has been blue. I’ve had the flu for way too long this month and for some reason this always happens to me in January… Anyway… I’m better now! Thankfully! And I’m so ready to get back to blogging and snapping pictures… But I’m gonna keep it short and sweet today.

And because today is the most depressing day of the year, or so they say, I decided to go for happy flowers! Like this beautiful headband and the cute flowers (which are a mouth add-on, I copied them a few times) from LaGyo. Collabor88 opened its doors almost two weeks ago (already two weeks ago!!) and it’s everything Unicorn over there. Now I don’t consider myself to be the most girliest of girls, but pretty pink flowers make me very happy! The LaGyo set contains way more prettiness than these flowers alone, so be sure to check them out!

Also, this beautiful skin is Amberly from Glam Affair. And because I couldn’t get enough of all these pretty flowers, I added a couple hortensia branches from Lode to make it complete. Both can be found at this round of The Chapter Four.

There’s nothing better than a great friend…

There's nothing better than a great friend...

…unless it’s a great friend with wine! ♥

So many new events opened up in January! I’m still enjoying the last days of my vacation, so I had some time left for some shopping.
I’m completely in love with this bed by Trompe Loeil. It’s so romantic and the bed with the lights is so beautiful. It comes in a lit and an unlit version and it has multiple drape versions too. You can find this bed at Fameshed, which opened up on the first of this month. The beautiful Vanity Table and Stool is by [PM]PixelMode and I thought it would match perfectly with the scene I had in mind. You can find both at Uber along with these beautiful wine bottles and glasses set by Kunst. Us ladies know what to do with a good bottle of wine (or two)… Also, the super cute shelf behind me is by ATTIC and can be found at OneWord.

Liv (the blond) is wearing the new Maitreya body, ‘Lara’. She also bought a lingerie applier from Zaara especially for the Maitreya body. I’m wearing the Belleza Venus body with the new set from Eudora which can be found at Uber. It’s a gorgeous corset which comes with a skirt and a top. The details on them are, like always, so beautiful.
We’re both wearing a new hair release from Truth. It’s actually the same hair, Harmony, but it comes in a bun and a ponytail version. You can find that release at Truth’s mainstore.

Happy shopping!

Happy New Year!

♥ Happy New Year! ♥

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas! Mine was absolutely great. I ate too much, I overdid it on the drinking and like always… I got tons of useless gifts! But they came from the loving hearts of my dear family and friends.

Because I’m still enjoying my holiday, my post is gonna be short today. OneWord will open its new round on the 1st of January! New round, new word! And this round’s word is ‘Dream’. The pose I’m using today is from !Bang Poses and is called ‘As if a dream’. The pose will be available at OneWord. I’m gonna show you more of the lovely new items which will be out at OneWord soon!
Also, I wanna mention these champagne glasses and bottles from Kunst. My sweet friend Ilaya, kindly asked her hubby Kunst if I could have some champagne. So to both Ilaya and Kunst, thank you so much for your kindness! They’re beautiful!!

This year has really flown by. I still can’t believe we’re already on 2015’s doorstep. It has been a crazy year, both in SL and RL. And in both lives, 2015 will bring a lot of new things! New places to live, new career opportunities and hopefully a lot of new friends. I am really looking forward to what the new year will bring! I wish every single one of you an amazing New Year’s Eve! And of course lots of love, happiness, friendship and health for 2015!! Let’s make it an incredible year!

Here to show you this new gacha set from HAIKEI which is available at this round of Kustom9! I’ve added the vendor add at the bottom of this post so you can all see how cute it is. There are 8 commons to win and one rare, being the Winter cabin. Like always, the texturing is amazing which makes it so easy to use in pictures and to decorate it. And it will fit on every winter sim.

I am so loving this jacket from Gawk! It’s available at Winter Trend and comes in a lot of different colors. Definitely worth demo-ing! The pants I’m wearing are from Emery and to be honest, I’m having a hard time taking them off. That’s how much I love them. We’ve paired our outfits with the snowboots from FLite, which are still available at The Arcade.

Special thanks to Xander for helping me out with this blogpost! ♥

Snow kisses

Snow Kisses...

Hi!

Let’s welcome back Mae. She’s Belleza’s new edition to this round of TLC which opened up today. Mae is made to fit the theme ‘Snowfall’ and is just like the previous version, gorgeous! There are 6 new exclusive versions to this skin. She comes in Fair, Pale and Medium. Dark, Red and Blonde brow options are included. Just like the hairbases, cleavage layers and both glossy/matte lips. I’m especially in love with the luscious red lips of the above version.

BellezaMaeTLCCOLLAGE

Also, this ‘snow kisses’ pose from Sari-Sari is amazing! I just had to have it. The snow I’m blowing out of my hand comes with the pose. And I know, I love photoshop, but NO SNOW was added in this picture! All the cute little snowflakes come with the pose. Which makes it perfect for this season.
