Oopskate is pinned and i also took some pics

Standard

Like i´ve mentioned before is again time for Oopskate, and all of you may ask what is Oopskate, and is very simple: every year on Rupert´s birthday, Rupert is an adorable orange feline beauty by the way, my friend Axi Kurmin (DJbronxelf) trows a big SL bash for him, that last usually 24 hours and has exclusive items, dancing and music and also a big best in orange contest.

This year i missed the party since i´m way ahead SL time to be on at that time, but until monday you can still grab the items at the Oopskate location, like every year all money raised goes to a small charity of Axi´s choice, and this year we´re raising money to help out Toby pay his vet bills, who said cats don´t like dogs? But here it is you can read more about Oopskate here and is there you will find all the items pinned, including this Pale Empress adorable  dress named after my own furry baby.

So here i am channeling my little one doing what she loves the most, which is laying down sleeping, hopefully near a sunbeam, in the mix of black and white this is her blanket, I hope you all have a great Sunday, at least has peaceful as hers.

Tell me a story

Standard

I´ve been busy, busy so this was a really an unplanned blog post, a lot is happening in SL and i´m trying to keep my head up and updated with everything, between pinning events, regular blogging and sim revamp for spring, i´ve been super busy.

But i had a little time to actually take some pictures, not planned ones but more accidental since i didn´t actually use any poses for them, and didn´t really think about look. I´ve been slowly decorating the sim for spring and summer, and this is my small bookstore with a reading corner, so i need more book things cause as you can see you can still see bits of wall in there.

Another thing that has kept me busy has been my pinterest account, which suffered some changes today as I added two new boards, one called  Store Sales, One time Events, Hunts and Contests, with posters containing the info about them, and another called Group Gifts, these will be kept on top on the boards along with my inspirational seasonal one Spring Fever, where i pin new releases and blog posts from other bloggers or flickr users.

Btw speaking of flickr and pinning i´ve been trying to pin as much as possible but sometimes the Flickr account settings don´t allow me to do so, so if you are a creator and wish to be pinned check your preferences i would rather link directly to your account then add my own pins, because credit where it´s due, i´m just a silly collector whilst others do the amazing work.

What is your beauty base zero?

Standard

That was the question asked By Portia Pexington in this interesting challenge.

I realized i didn´t really have one well not an actually saved one ready to wear, since the option of outfits became available i usually keep two outfits only in my inventory, one is made of a full body alpha and nothing else, i call it my event suit, it allows me to visit events and cut down on lag, I´ve considered making another one tho, since an alpha makes it hard to try demos, so i´ll probably just make a new event outfit soon that consists of a simple all black skin.

My second outfit is usually a simple casual look i probably blogged at some point and is there for emergencies going out occasions, like if i suddenly need to pop out of my platform and i just trow it on, it´s usually like i said casual and seasonal, so i don´t feel so awkward and out of place, but that usually fails me miserably, since i change skins often for the blog, when i put on the outfit the feet and hands are never matching.

But tbh i rarely wear this outfit, i´ll proudly walk around the grid looking like a hot mess most of my time, which usually means bald, with my AO of, at least 3/4 different mesh pieces and the wrong alpha layers on for them and unmatching feet and hands, i sometimes joke i must be somewhere on some The Fugly of SL website of Flickr group somewhere.

But i´m glad i stumbled upon this challenge since it made me set up this simple look i can wear everywhere and is now saved in my outfit folder, ready for a blog post when i feature my regular everyday skin.

Shape: mine 

I´ve had this shape for 2 years now, a huge difference from my previous one, two years ago i lowered my avatar closer to my RL height, something that makes most avatars sorta of tower over me, since that huge change two years ago i haven´t touched the face at all or the body much, only changes i do remember doing, was recently to resize my ears making them bigger, to fit some hair styles.

Things like general body i mess with all the time to fit mesh clothes, but i keep several copies of my basic shape in different places of my inventory and with different names due to two months ago SL simply deleting one versions of this shape.

Skin: Mynerva  –  Milena

I´ve used Mynerva skins for my regular skin for about 3 years now, and didn´t even think twice when Milena came out, it fits my shape, which is something i never change, and i simply love it´s details and mostly the freckles, i do sometimes add on an extra freckle layer, but not all the time, mostly for more natural and casual looking blog posts.

Brows: Mynerva  –  Milena Brow Shape/Milena Brows Red 3

I always keep my brow shap constant, but having the Eyebrows in a seperate layer makes me forget them sometimes, which can be the ocasional pain of taking a bunch of pics and finally loose that nagging feeling something is wrong with them, when you realize you forgot to wear your eyebrows

Eyes: Izzie’s – Natural Mesh Eyes 

I sometimes try diferent eyes but these brown ones have been my favourites for over a year  now i love my brown Izzie´s.

Eyelashes: Maxi Gossamer - Eyelashes – Groomed

I quite these and i do tend to be lazy and also having a hard time fitting most lashes to my eyes, but i would love to experiment, so if you know more eyelashes out there and worth trying out let me know, i so wanna play more with close-ups.

Hair: [ monso ]  - My Hair – Yoon/ Cookie Pack

I usually go for short haircuts for my day to day preference, this one is one of my all time favourites, even if it´s not my favourite of all times colour i love how it fits my face and overall cuteness.

Feet: [Gos] Boutique -  Mesh Feet (New Release)

These are new, tho i bought them over weekend and haven´t managed to take them off yet, cause they´re pretty  and i like them, lol i know it´s my new favourite toy, and after filling out a request on teh website for my regular skin to be added to the database, this morning i recieve a personal IM informing me it had just been added, talk about good personalized costumer support there. I can´t now wait to try the matching when i get home later.

Words are all i have

Standard

Again i say like so many times before that i´m not much of a shoe person, be it RL or SL i simply don´t get most women and quite a few men´s fascination about footwear, i usually go for comfy in RL and barefooted whenever possible, so when new feet come out i usually do check those.

A few days ago Gos decided to divide the shop in a way that would allow better branding and market segmentation, so Gos Boutique was born, not only catering just for women, but releasing over this weekend quite a few new models of shoes, and two bare feet versions in mesh (i´m wearing the flat version here) and a new revolutionary tinting system, well every woman just sighs and sometimes cringes when tinting is mentioned , i know i´ve spent quite a few hours messing with huds to get a reasonable match, i don´t even require a perfect match, just reasonable, and if you´re blogging it becomes tiring with every skin change, and trust me i do a lot of those, means a few more wasted minutes on feet tinting, time i could be using to enjoy SL.

And what´s so different from the these feet you may ask? Well to start the tinting database Gos offers already includes more than half of the grids skin makers, even better you can add online the suggestion for more skin creators to add to the database. My regular Mynerva wasn´t available, but a simple manual match was pretty fast to do, with pretty good results, and to know i won´t have to stress over about the other 80% skins in my inventory, makes these godsend to a blogger.

So i would totally classify these has my best buy so far this year because i also found them cheap, so cheap i have to go back to grab the arched version, and i enjoyed the system so much i even bought a pair of sandals, and am now waiting for more releases that will fit these, specially summer sandals. So be prepared to see them around a lot.

I also dropped by at Maitreya this weekend since they just releases a bunch of new goodies, some seasonal but mostly a new Nightlife collection all worth checking out, this was just one of my favourites in pretty purplish tones, another shop i visited over weekend was Dura not a regular shop for me but i´m loving their short hairs.

And cause i´m slowly learning how to take pics of shoes, i dusted up some Flowey poses i had in my inventory for ages waiting to be used, i sometimes do that keep things about until i find the perfect timming  and mood for them.

As for the title and general mood of today´s blog post it´s pretty much appropriate to how we deal with words and how much effect they have in our lives, something i´ve been thinking a lot about recently.

In the meanwhile enjoy your weekend everyone, happy shoe shopping and don´t forget to check my other blog post over at Hottie Cooterati from earlier here. Just take it easy today cause a new week is coming.
