Skin Fair 2013: Falling in Love With all of Elyse

Skin Fair 2013 is here!!!!! Well, I’m slow, and I had some PC issues, which..I hope is resolved now, so I’m a bit late, Skin Fair 2013 actually began last week, but the good news is it runs thru March so you still have plenty of time to get over there and get shopping!!!!

Catty Tuli1 - Elyse

Tuli has once again done what she does and created a new, lovely skin which I know will be among my favorites in the future. One word of warning tho..if you are not already a Tuli fan, you will be after trying this skin! Elyse has so many options, you’ll spend weeks wearing different ones. You have a choice of three tones: Pearl, Power and Petal (shown here is Petal), tho I love them all. Each tone comes in 4 eyebrow options (Brown, Blond, Black and Red) and if that isn’t enough, each comes with the option of dimples!! Cleavage you ask? You get two options of cleavage with each for getting your look just right with your outfits and all that. Now, about the all important make up options…you do the math, I’ll give the facts here, I’ve no idea how many variations you end up with. Each tone is available in two make up packs…Sultry and Elementary. Each of these comes in five eye make up options (one for each brow color, and each with, or without, dimples). Tuli did not forget the lips, oh no she did not! With each pack you get thirty lip options! Yes, I said 30! There are three lip tones: Intense, Deviant and Sheer, each with five colors, and each of those comes in Gloss, or No Gloss option.

Catty Tuli2 - Elyse

Whew..that was exhausting! How many variations of Elyse did you come up with? Not enough for you in there? More good news! Tuli has Lolas Tangos Appliers available too for all the tones! as well as many more skins available at Skin Fair!! Get on over now and check them out, try the demos, fall in love with Elyse and sooo much more worth falling in love with at Skin Fair 2013! Stay tuned for more glimpses into what you can find this year. Happy skin shopping!

Catty- LOTD Elyse

Oh, and even more good news – as we are already a week into Skin Fair, the lag should now be manageable! However, you should still dress down appropriately, as always, in attending any event where there is much shopping to do. Remember, prioritize! Priority One is seeing all that is there to see, and getting around it all to see it, AND buying all there that you want! You can dress up after shopping, in all the new skins you’ve bought!

A Little Global Domination, A Little Exile

You’ve just three days left for Global Domination!!! This very entertaining event ends on Thursday, and I highly recommend it if you enjoy hunt and puzzles. Do not get me wrong tho, this is NOT a hunt, tho some hunting is involved. It took me about three days of off-and-on back-and-forth grid-hopping and thinking and making all kinds of notes to figure it out, along with a little eavesdropping of the Hint Group. It’s the most fun I’ve had doing a hunt/grid hopping type thing in ages, and Kudos to the organizers of this event, and I hope they do more! I’m showing here just three of the many wonderful prizes (for more peeks, see Global Domination ).

Global Domination in Exile

I love the Global Domination Prize gown from Indrya Originals, it comes in two color options, with two sets of coordinating jewelry, also shown here. I’m sure I’ll be wearing this thru spring and into summer, and even these late dreary winter days when spring fever is beginning to take root. Pilot offers up for a prize this very versatile stage, complete with a variety of poses to use, however, I chose to use the poses from aDORKable, also a Global Domination prize for completing the game. I love this Exile hair, Loveshack, available at My Attic @ The Deck thru this week also, and I even opted to wear a different color for a change. I’m still loving this Zoe skin too, from Tuli, make sure grab it also while you’re over at My Attic @ The Deck before its gone. You’ve much to do to keep you busy for the rest of this month, so don’t delay or you’ll be sorry you missed out on all the fun and bargains!!

My Attic : Tuli and the Loveshack

If you haven’t heard the news by now, you do need to get out shopping! I suggest you start today at The Deck’s latest round of My Attic, a great sale event that occurs every couple of months with offerings from several of the most talented designers on the grid. When you go for this round, the first thing to look for is this gorgeous new Tuli skin!! Yes, you heard me right, Tuli is back!! She’s been back awhile now, and I’ll be showing you some of her other newness soon, but for today, I just had to show you Zoe, an old favorite of mine, and I was so happy that not only was Tuli back, but she’s bringing back some faves as well as introducing us to new delights!

Catty Pop

At this round of My Attic, the theme is Pop Music, and you’ll find many goodies all priced at 95L, how good is that? One must have is this great new updo from Exile, appropriately named “Loveshack”. There are many other things all of us shoppers and pop music lovers need there, from clothing to photosets to poses, so hurry on over and see what goodies you can find. I’ll be going back for sure!

New Releases : Dancing with Emma from Entre Mares

Entre Mares has released a stunning new gown, Emma, that will be sure to heat up your cold winter nights when you go out (or stay in) dancing.

EM Emma Full

If you have a special date night coming up and you want to turn the heat up and aren’t sure what to wear, head on over to Entre Mares, you’re sure to find something there that will be just perfect for your evening. The new Emma will certainly fit that order, it is available in blue as shown, as well as a black, purple and yellow. It is lacy and delicate, and yes, it does cover all the necessary parts that need covering. The bits and parts are all well made, and the flex is just right for twirling on the dance floor.

EM Emma Couple

For my night out with my special man, I chose a favorite updo from Truth, and a favorite pair of heels from N-Core. I also chose a favorite diamond set from Alyssa Bijoux, always a great classic to wear on any formal occasion. Add to that, my most fave nails, from Bamboo, in a silvery color to match my shoes and jewelry, and I am good to go be dazzling on the arms of my dazzling man.

EM Emma Dance

Now, no more delay, rush over and grab this gown and the other things, and ..I’m off to do some more blogging and dancing, see you soon!!!

Keeping Calm & Catching Up

May is rushing past and I’ve hardly had a time to keep up. Finally I got a chance to delve into some SL and see what I’ve almost missed. First thing I did to catch up was take a peek at the Keep Calm & Keep Shopping event, going on now thru May 28,2012. Participating designers have created exclusive items for this event, that will not be available later, so you will not want to miss any! See the Keep Calm & Keep Shopping blog for full list of stores and other info.

Catching Up & Keeping Calm 1

Dirty Little Secret has something fun for KCKS, a Dressmaker’s Studio. You can see a peek of it here, it’s filled with furniture and decor and makes a great hang out for all designer and fashiony types, and its plenty roomy for creating in. Clutter, one of my fave stores, has a yummy chair out, I managed to find a special spot for it in the Studio. Coloreta’s is a store new to me, and this top they’ve made includes a very cool skirt but I opted to wear it with my favorite white jeans for a fun summer look.

Catching Up & Keeping Calm 2

I also got a chance to check out some new tatts from Essential Soul, and I’m loving this Koi Pond..I usually don’t go for colorful but I cannot seem to take it off. A few of my favorite groups have been sending gifts of late too, Belleza being one, with the nummilicious Lily V2 which has me thinking I need more of this skin for sure. Pixel Mode has gifted it’s subscribers with a fun pair of blue wedgies, perfect for summer wear.

It’s Still Time!

Yes, it is still time!!! Time for shopping, time for relay, time for a cure!! One of the many brilliant things about Second Life, is how we, as residents, shoppers, designers, artists, shoppers, party-goers, creators and shoppers, can use our love of SL to benefit “real” world causes. FFL 2012 offers 10 sims filled with all of this and more, just visit and hang around awhile and you can’t help but feel the vibes penetrating the pixels everywhere.

FFL 2012 Review - Sakide Heartsick Full

I’ve been overwhelmed with the amount of goodies to be found, not knowing where to start, so much to enjoy. For a start today, a few of the things I’ve found myself enjoying this week. I was delighted by the purple tone skin, complete with ears!!, found as a gacha prize from Heartsick. The dotty blush, with a touch of pink shadow, are an extra from Mynerva that seemed to just belong with this skin. The white dress, a donation item from Sakide, shows it off nicely I think, I love it’s flowy, lacy touches.

FFL 2012 Review - Sakide Heartsick

A favorite thing about events like FFL is finding vendors and places we maybe didn’t shop at before, one for me being Lapointe & Bastchild. I so love this black S’Wear Drift Jacket they have up as a donation item so much, I”m sure it’ll be worn many times, with dresses, and jeans too. and L&B is sure to be a regular stop on my future shopping trips. I’ve also been enjoying the Amy skins from Hush, a must have for all skin lovers.

FFL 2012 Review - Sakide L&B Hush

Another fun skin is the Katsucide Sandra Cendre line from Acide – they come in three monochrome tones, and a variety of lip and eye make up options to suit any skin lover. I’ve enjoyed playing with them, they’ll work for so many different themes, I chose a fun flirty look with the sneaky peeky black Aphrodite dress from SYSY’s. So much shopping, so little time! There is so much more to be found, but for now, real life calls me off to my MiniMe’s first show choir state competition, but I’ll be sure to save some energy for more FFL’ing later! See you soon!
