Week of Nails - Ama


In honour of my new slink hands for my alt, I decided to to a week of covering various nails.

Today I am going to start at our very own Shop Free*Style. Ama has a free appliers pack, with various nail appliqués. I'm just showing my favourite out of the pack. They are all very different.

I decided to spruce the shot up a bit, and am wearing these bracelets, also found at Shop Free*Style for free, by Hate This.

Get them both for free HERE.

***Slink Hands obviously not included nor free***

Fairly Dreaming


Devae just came out with a new release yesterday. If you do not know the label, you may know the creator. Ruina Kessel has been support by our blog for a long time. She started with a store called House or Ruin, dealing mostly with eyes. Then she rebranded to Rue, which might be a more noticeable name, carrying skins, makeups, horns and still a lot of eyes. I'm not entirely sure why the newest rebrand, but that doesn't take away from the quality of the items.

Above I'm showing the new eyes, called Dreamer. The version above you can actually win in a gatcha. Only L$15 to play, and 15 colours to collect. There are no rares, so you have the same chance of getting any of the colours.


One of the unique things Ruina did, way back in her House of Ruin days, was to offer a wearable tester of all her eyes. This is a totally wearable version, no words, no weirdness . . . well other than the actual style of course, haha. It is basically one free colour of the set, so you can try them, see if you like them, and then purchase a colour that might be more to your liking. I'm wearing the Dreamer tester above.


I thought I'd throw in one of the regular colours of the full priced line. These eyes are really affordable, only L$60 per pair. This colour happened to be my favourite, not totally sure as to why. I normally pick blue or green. This stood out so much, just had to try it!

Summer Gone


The house is so cold this weekend. The sudden weather change has taken a toll on all the residents of my rl home.

No indian summer this year.


I caved. I bought slink hands for my alt. Said I wouldn't, when I first got them on my main account, but alas, I could not help it in the end.


It'll be feet next. I'll wake up and find out my alt went shopping without me. Until then, she has to try to make the system ones work.

I took me all night to figure out how to make a short video clip of only part of my screen, then have it in a formate that was compatible with Blogger. But I did it. Here is a small clip of the lip glitter I am wearing in the above photos. It is an actual attachment that is scripted, so it really does glitter. Even with me capturing it, it does still look way better inworld and in your snaps.

I'm Back!


So a thing happened. What is that thing? I turned up inworld.

As always, the first thing I do is go shopping. How can I see what I missed, and what is new, if I don't actually go out there?

As always, I share my finds with you.


I always love dressing up my dark skinned beauty. She may sport lighter tones, or alternative ones, from time to time when I am blogging, but I always bring her back to the darker ones after.

Makeups can be a challenge on these tones. Often lip layers make the tones look cartoony. Happens a lot with the eye makeup as well.

I was pleasantly surprised with these 2 makeup layers.

Added Note - What is a Scalera? It is the part of the eye that shows as white. Often times designers put so much effort into the iris(coloured part) and pupil(black part) that the scalera is rather bland. This can look very stark on darker skin tones. To combat this I wear Scalera Shadows. There are only a few designers I have ever found with the option, for purchasing. Wee Ones is one of the few stores that has them. It is a very simple addition that can really make your new eyes pop. Or not glow in the dark, haha. I'm an eye snob, I know.


I noticed A:S:S: had a bunch of their sky boxes up for grabs, so since I like to shoot with LadyLight in them so often, I decided to share one today with you all.

Want a history lesson from an old, pixilated broad? Newer people often comment on the choice of store name for A:S:S: It obviously stands for something, but what?

Another Shirt Shop. Way back when, guys shirts, and maybe a few other things, were the only product you would have found at A:S:S: Look how far they have come.
