[ s k i n ] Sharon by YourSkin & YourShape

Sharon is yet another delightful skin from YourSkin & YourShape.  Those who picked up the Christmas Group Gift #9 already got a little sneak preview.   Ever since I tried on the group gift skin, I have been dying to get my hands on other make ups, and they are here now!  Yay!  Sharon comes with three eyebrow options: dark (shown above), light, and red.  It also has a dark brown hairbase option with dark eyebrows.  There are 14 great make ups for this skin line.  Above are some of my favorites, and below the rest of the make ups available for this skin.  Note this is in a tan tone.  A lighter skintone and a darker skintone will be released at a later date.

[ s t y l e ] Geometric Prints

I like playing around with patterns.  Today I chose this interesting dress with cool geometric prints from Modern Gypsy.  The shape of the dress is very retro and classic, but the geometric prints make the dress modern.  I kept accessories very feminine and sophisticated.

[ s k i n ] Ling by Glance Skins

 

I came across Glance Skins checking out the “So 2010” Secret 50L Sale.  One of the skin lines, Ling, caught my attention as it is one of the Asian skin lines available at the store.  Although there are some minor visible seamlines along the shoulders and legs, the facial features were extremely appealing.  The skin does not look very Asian on my shape, but I do find the exotique features very attractive.  I love the make up choices available too, thus I am extremely happy to add these to my collection of skins.

[ s t y l e ] I Love Singapore!

I am not Miss Singapore.  I am not even Singaporean, but Singapore is one of my favorite countries in Asia.  Just this month, I visited Singapore twice already and no, it’s not close from home.  It’s about a seven hour plane ride away.  Beautiful Christmas lights, great food, and friendly people, Singapore is a melting pot of a lot of different cultures which is very appealing to me.

When I saw the new releases from Nicky Ree and Alienbear honoring Singapore, I knew I had to get my hands on them.  Both designers were inspired by the national flower of Singapore, Vanda Miss Joaquim, a tropical flower.   Well known for their intricate and beautiful textures and prim work, Nicky Ree and Alienbear have outdone themselves this time.  I just feel  so feminine and exotic! 

Note the dress can be worn in many different ways.  Above, I tried to show you some options.

[ s t y l e ] Black & Red

When I logged on this afternoon, I received a notecard from Aleida Rhode announcing the closing of her store Aleida after Dec 31st.  An accomplished fashion model and designer in SL®, she has decided to pursue other interests.  Her creations are on sale right now, about 40%-60% off on everything including skins.  The sale will go on till Dec 31st.  I picked up a few items and created this formal look mixing parts of different outfits from Aleida.  Wishing you the best of luck, Aleida~

One more thing, the hair I am wearing is a new release from JE*Republic.  It’s a new version of Jungeun’s popular Tarae series.  It is such an interesting hair style.  I wonder if I can pull it off in RL?!?!

[ s k i n ] Daphne by Beauty Avatar

The beautiful Saretta Tedeschi, manager of Beauty Avatar, gave me an early Christmas present, a skin pack of Beauty Avatar’s upcoming new skin line, Daphne!  I was thrilled to try them on.  The face is sophisticated and the make ups very edgy.  Because I am usually a dark brunette, I usually go for darker brow options, but it was great to step out and try out something different.  After all, models have to be versatile.  If you are a blonde or have light brown hair, you will love Daphne.  I was wearing Light, but there are two darker tones available, Natural and Dark.  I am not sure when these will be released, but make sure you don’t miss out!

Thank you Saretta for these lovely skins!  I love it!!!
