A Winter Preview

Winter Preview

Temperatures have dropped quite a bit in Seoul, and I can feel the winter just around the corner.   So, today I went around exploring some winter themed sims in Second Life.  First stop was Winter Wonderland at Two Moon Paradise, a place where you can enjoy the beautiful winter scenery, dance in skates, and hang out with reindeers and bears.  I saw a lot of couples on a date at this place… I tried my best not to disturb them while taking my pictures.  🙂  Anyways, I have a bit of good news… at least good news for me.  I have joined Wicked as one of their regular bloggers.  Yay!  The sweater I am wearing today is a group gift.  It comes with a HUD which allows you to customize the color of the cowl neck, cuffs and ends of the sweater.  I didn’t venture and kept the colors the same as the main body of the sweater.  The skinny jeans are from HOC Industries.  They are only L$10 and it comes with a HUD with 11 color options as well, a true bargain.  I have worn them here before in red.  The hair is new from Truth available at Uber.  I picked them up during my recent shopping trip.  The hair can be worn without the hat.  You can also customize the colors of the hat via HUD.  The bag is also a fairly recent purchase from Bens Beauty & Boutique.  The boots are part of a full outfit from ba!Designs.  Both come with HUD as well. I love HUD; I wish we had HUD in RL too!  😛

Just a Casual Look

This is just a casual look I have been wearing around the grid lately.  Layering is something I quite love doing in RL so I gave it a try in SL.  I kept it quite simple though.  The undershirt is actually a cardigan I had in my inventory.  I thought the green check pattern contrasts nicely with my new T-shirt from Koketka.  I added some red accessories.  The watch and shoes are both from HOC Industries.  I love this little store.  It carries quite nice items at extremely affordable prices, great place to pick up some staples for your wardrobe.  The lowtops are actually scripted to change colors.  I love it!  The bag is also quite cheap, and scripted to change colors as well.  This one is from Izumiya.  The hair is new. I bought them at The Tropicalia Bazaar, another discount shop with items from various designers.  I guess that is the trend these days…  Anyways, at this rate I am going to be broke soon, but at least most of the items did not cost me an arm and a leg!

[ s t y l e ] Chocolate Shades

I so want Runo Runo’s new weave jacket in RL.  It’s classy and elegant with feminine bow details which makes it an interesting piece to have in your wardrobe.  Pair it up with your favorite pair of pants for a stylish yet comfortable look for the office but dressy enough for a dinner date after work.

[ s k i n ] Spanish Skins by Unique Megastore

[ s k i n ] Spanish Skins by Unique Megastore

I am very fond of Spain, mainly because I spent most of my childhood growing up in a small town in Spain.  My family still lives there and I try to visit at least once a year.  So when I found this gorgeous Spanish skin at Unique Megastore, my heart went all warm and fuzzy.  The facial features capture the sensuality of the Spanish women.  I love the little black mole on the face.  Like other skins by Nani Merlin, the body detail is quite realistic.  The fatpack contains eleven different make ups, each with two different options (one with mole and one without mole), one pair of beautiful eyes by Nani Merlin, and a unique shape by Iarita Beck.  Below are some of my favorite make up options.  Note I am wearing my own shape and eyes for these pictures, but the shape and the eyes included in the fatpack are gorgeous.

[ s t y l e ] A Little Bit of Sunshine

A Little Bit of Sunshine

I am back.  I had to deal with some tragic event in RL.  I am still learning to cope with it, but I wanted to take the opportunity to thank all of you who have supported me.  You have made it easier for me, and I am slowly moving forward.  

On to today’s outfit, as I have been a bit depressed lately, I wanted to wear something bright and colorful to cheer me up.  I pulled out the Umbrella Dress from Tree & Ocean SL (TOSL).   This dress is not new.  It is actually one of Quinlan’s early creations.  I remember this was one of the outfits I chose for Miss SL Tropics 2007 competition during my early days of SL® and till this day it still remains as one of my favorite dresses in my inventory.  I love the shiny texture and the way the skirt moves.  I feel like I am beaming doses of sunlight and positive energy in this dress. 

I went colorful with my choices in accessories and shoes, perhaps a little too much, but wanted to keep the look fun and happy.  The candy red shoes from HOC (only L$30 and scripted to change colors) are a true bargain.  I added cherry earrings (freebie) from PRIMALOT and Fruitylicious Charm Bangle from TOSL for some zesty touch.  The mini bag is also from TOSL.  It’s so cute. 

Make up and hair, I could have gone cute with pig tails and no make up, but I stuck with my usual short brown hair and red lips.  Note, this skin is on sale over at Laroqki.  All Portrait skins are currently 50% off, i.e. L$645 per make-up or L$990 for fatpack of all makeups (ranging between 4 make ups to as much as 21 make ups depending on skin).  You can find the sale items on the second floor of the mainstore.
