I am so tempted to buy another mesh head mainly so my pictures can convey more emotions. The new Jessica head from Catwa is impressive. I picked up a demo and started to play around with my Omega applier skins in my inventory and I quite liked how user friendly the HUD is. There are enough slots for me to save my favorite skins, make ups, eyebrows, etc. It comes with quite a number of expressions so that’s a big plus. Unfortunately, while this head is beautiful, I still have not found an Asian skin for this mesh head, so I will wait till I see more skin options first. If you know of any Asian skins compatible with Catwa or Omega System please let me know! By the way, I have tried Lumae’s Fae skin on this head but it didn’t look very Asian.
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.
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.

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.

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.
Taniz is a sim made of a group of islands dedicated to mystical creatures and fantasy. Upon arrival, you will land at a skybox overlooking the sim. Hop on the balloon to get a general tour of the sim and to reach the main area. From the main area, you can TP using the Taniz Teleporter Bamboo to check out all the interesting places the sim has to offer: Adamanta Thol, Chinese Dream, Dragons’ Island, Hippie Beach, Lakotas’ Camp, Kameleon’s Dream, Mermaids, Pirates Port, Vampire Club, and Zeppelin. There are lots of pose balls for couples including couple dancing, all around the sim. Needless to say, there are some great photo locations as as well.
While exploring, I had the pleasure of meeting one of the owners of the sim, Unkyie Jewell. Unkyie says they hold themed parties and events at the sim. I can’t wait to attend one!
