[ S T Y L E ] Denim Love

Denim Love

It’s raining cats & dogs in Seoul, so I am stuck in my apartment.  At least I have SL to entertain myself.  I put together this casual outfit which is very similar to what I would wear in RL… less revealing though.  The skirt is a bit too short and I would button up the vest, but you get the idea…

[ S T Y L E ] Pink Beach

Pink Beach

I am recycling one of my favorite swimsuits from Vero Modero for this post.  It was released last year, but I still love it.  The mesh swimsuit is not fit for Maitreya, but the standard size mesh fits me well so I have been wearing it quite a bit.  It comes with a color HUD which allows me to tint it any color I would like which is really convenient and an added plus.

Electric Blue

Add hints of electric blue into hues of black for a clean modern look.  An easy way is to add it to your make-up.  Blue lipstick can be a bit intimidating but if done well can be quite edgy.  Check out Livia’s latest for some great options.

[ B E A U T Y ] JE*REPUBLIC Is Back!

JE*REPUBLIC Is Back!

My dear friend Jungeun Vella from JE*REPUBLIC is back with Catwa skin appliers!  JE*REPUBLIC was one of my favorite hair stores back in the days.  Jungeun has been off the grid for sometime and is slowly making a come back with a small selection of Catwa skin appliers.  It’s still early stages but it looks so promising.  At the moment, the skins are not base skins, i.e. the skins have default make up on it.  Therefore, some make up appliers may not work well with the skin.  Hopefully, she will be releasing some bare natural skins.   Also, the body appliers offered for now is limited to Maitreya and Belleza.  She is currently offering the skin applier I am wearing today as a group gift at her store.  There is a L$50 fee to join.  You can purchase the body applier separately at the store.
