Sn@tch at CHIC²

Hey guys! Look at this fun bathing suit I grabbed from Sn@tch at CHIC²! I am a big fan of the vintage look, and the prim bows just take it to a whole new level of cute! There are a bunch of fab colors available. This great hair from The Alice Project went just right with the look! Her styles are so different than other designers, and really well done.

I played around with dodge and burn for the first time on this photo. I found a tutorial here on how to use dodge and burn without damaging the original photo. I’m definitely not a master at this technique by any means, but it’s fun to see the additional depth that can be added. I will keep playing around with it and hopefully getting better!

Mesh Around Hunt, etc.

Hey! By now, I know a lot of you are unboxing and trying on all of your Mesh Around Hunt goodies! If you haven’t started this hunt yet, GET ON IT! You have until the 15th. If you’re still on the hunt, keep your eyes peeled for the blue “M” at Jinx’d, cuz this top is inside!

I cannot show you that photo without also mentioning these amazing jeans from Jane. They are just… like butter. I fatpacked them. They fit perfectly. I wasn’t totally sold on mesh jeans in the beginning, but these jeans have completely changed my mind. Mesh just keeps getting better, and Jane is incredibly talented at it. Her creations are always wonderful.

This hair deserves a huge mention as well. Wasabi Pills released this hair especially for CHIC², CHIC Management’s second birthday event. There’s also a ponytail version that Wasabi Pills has out for Zombie Popcorn. The braids framing the face in both versions are just adorable.

Still more Mesh Around Hunt!

Guys. I have more. Truly, if I did a post every day for the 15 days that this hunt spans (which I might, you never know) I would not be able to blog all of the great things included. Here’s a fun shirt from Apple May Designs for your inner badass.

All of the information for the hunt can be found here. More blogs posts with more previews are here. My previous posts with other previews and information are here. Forgive me for being lazy. It’s Monday, right?

Stumblebum & My Attic @ The Deck

Summer is upon us (in the Northern Hemisphere) and it couldn’t be more evident in the SL fashion world. So many fantastic designers are coming out with adorable summery releases! Take, for example, this outfit from Eclectic Apparel. This colorful mesh outfit is out for 25% off the regular price for Stumblebum until May 28th. There are all sorts of bright colors available in the shorts, so hurry over to E! and grab the fatpack before they go up to full price! Also out now is this absolutely precious hair from Exile. Tbh, Exile hair doesn’t usually look good on my av, and I’m not sure why. I always demo them, and I walk away hairless. NOT THIS TIME! I was sooooo exited that this hair worked for me. I love it very much, and it just screams summer. Even better, this style is out at My Attic @ The Deck for just 95L per color pack until May 31st. So, hurry up and grab at least 3 packs. You know it’ll be worth it!

Culture Shock 2012 & Summer Beauty Festival

Hey guys! I am SO EXCITED to tell you about some big events going on right now in SL!

First is Culture Shock. It’s this great event celebrating the different cultures of SL residents and creators through fashion, art and music. The sim opened to bloggers, and let me tell you- it is really cool. All sorts of amazing vendors with exclusive items! I think the best part is that 50-100% of every vendor’s profits will be going to Médecins Sans Frontières, so not only do you get to shop for some great stuff but you’re also helping out a great cause!

Culture Shock will be open from May 4- 26. In the photo credits, I’ll asterisk (*) each item that you can find at CS!

Also happening now is the Summer Beauty Festival, which features some great cosmetic items! The festival opened May 1st and will be open till the 25th. I will note the SBF items in the credits with a double asterisk (**).

Credits after break! Continue reading
