Carefree Days / Manicure Monday

Carefree

This Monday is a carefree day and perfect for taking a stroll. Walks in the brisk December air make me happy and ready for whatever the day brings. I stopped by the local cafe for a quick bite to eat on the go. Then I am ready to hit the after Christmas sales.

My hair style is Austen by Truth. It comes with the hat on and without. The coat and dress are from Neve by ColdLogic. The coat, buttons, and dress are all color change by hud. The dress can also be made transparent. If you haven’t noticed, I really dig these boots from Ingenue. I’m wearing them with just about everything!

We Love Role-play is having a Christmas gift hunt. The hidden presents are 10L or less. You’ll find gifts from Truth, Glam Affair, Pink Fuel, and more. The poses that I am using are a gift from An Lar. There are also free gifts under the trees for those in the event group.

Today is Manicure Monday and I’m wearing LIVIA’s Shimmer & Shine Nails. These can be applied to Slink and Omega. LIVIA is in a few gift hunts and has several nail appliers on sale for 5L. I love pink glitter so I had to have these. This set comes with 6 different colors of glitter polish.

Getting Ready for the New Year

Getting Ready for the New Year

Truth has a new mesh hairstyle out at Uber. The new Truth Austen hairstyle can be worn with a baseball hat or without. The hat takes a glamorous hairstyle and tones it down for casual everyday wear. There are 16 textures for the hat. You could easily wear it with the hat while running errands for the day, and then remove the hat and slip on a dress for an evening out.

Foxes gave their VIP group an amazing gift of 500L credit to spend in their store. I purchased the Dip Dress in mauve at Collabor88. This dress will be perfect for ringing in the new year. My necklace came with the dress and has a string of pearls that hangs down the open back of the dress. This dress is made for Belleza, Slink, and Maitreya mesh bodies.

I am so excited that Apple Fall finally released the long awaited Gatekeeper gacha set. We have all waited on this since TAG Gacha back in October. The dollhouse is probably the most wanted item. I love each piece. The gatekeeper’s lodge can be used year round. The snow on the rooftop can be removed when winter is over.

Peeking Under the Christmas Tree

Peeking Under the Tree

Do you like peeking at presents under the tree? Sometimes I just can’t help wondering what is in the pretty wrapped packages. I admit that I will shake them, and I can usually guess my gifts. My silly little tuxedo kitten was checking out things under the tree himself.

Unfortunately, Manicure Monday was delayed because I took a sick day. Maybe we should call it Wet Nails Wednesday. The nail appliers that I have picked out for this week are from Hello Dave. This store participated in Lazy Sunday with the Christmas Party nail appliers pack. This set comes in 35 colors. Upon arriving at the store I noticed an advent calendar. Simply join the group for free and click the days of the calendar for the very generous nail appliers. A free one for every day of December!

Speaking of gifts and generosity, neve by ColdLogic has this fitted mesh sweater set at the main store set out as a gift for all. You do not have to join the group to get it. The top comes in green, red, blue, and gray. The undershirt also comes in 4 colors or can be hidden. Each is texture change by hud. This is my favorite top from the neve team, and it is an awesome gift from them.

How this Winter Coat is Making the World a Better Place

Winter Coats

Neve (a brand from ColdLogic) has just released this gorgeous winter coat. The coat itself comes in 4 texture packs with each of those having 4 color variations inside. The buttons, coat, and the dress showing from beneath the coat are all color change. The dress can also be turned off so that it won’t show at all. I love all of the choices. Neve fitted mesh products are for Maitreya Lara, Slink Physique, Belleza Isis, and the standard avatar. I have paired the coat up with Neve ZeeZee leggings. This coat is such a beautiful and classy fashion statement.

My hair style is brand new from Truth Hair. The hat can be worn attached or not and is color change by hud. The Bernadette hair style was also released as a group gift with the hat attached. This style also comes with a version for larger chests. The statement earrings are from ANE, and these can be found in 12 different colors at The Chapter Four event.

Cute New Kitten Loves to Nuzzle / Manicure Monday

New Kitten click to enlarge

Today’s Manicure Monday includes a cure for anything that makes you manic. Kitty cats are so darn cute and are the best medicine for making you relax and laugh. This silly calico kitty from JIAN is trying to nuzzle my neck. These kitty cats that can be adopted at the Winter Trend event are so cute and animated.

My holiday manicure is by ZOZ. This design is called Deer Colors and comes with 9 nail polish colors. I’m wearing it on my Maitreya Lara hands. ZOZ brand is very good at giving the polish a realistic shine. You can see the other colors on flickr.

Love it when it fits

Love when it fits click to enlarge

Don’t you just love it when you put an outfit together and it all just fits together. We are so accustomed to wearing full mesh outfits sold to us somewhat as a kit. We are presented to wear such and such top with these or those pants/skirt. All created by the same designer. Otherwise you can have bulging through or odd looking overlap clothing. I love pulling outfits together from different designers. It helps us stay unique.

This outfit was created around the new Ingenue Amelia boots for Collabor88. I remembered that Neve had leggings with boot helpers. The boot helper is on the hud and helps tuck the leggings into boots. Brilliant of the Neve team to add. I wish more designers would incorporate this. These leggings fit perfectly inside the boot. I then decided on The Secret Store Sweater to compliment the rest of the outfit. My hairstyle is Truth Solace. You can find it at We Love Role Play event.

The backdrop is the Trompe Loeil Ceres Outdoor Scene that was released for fall. I simply removed the leaves and pumpkins. Then I added a snow texture to the ground and it was ready for winter! You can see it here at Lo Lo where you are always welcome to come and take your pictures.

Manicure Monday

Manicure Monday

LaBoheme was featured last week, but I thought she needed another mention because of all the December events she is in. The Holiday nail polish that I am wearing comes in 10 different colors. It is made for Maitreya Lara, Omega Applier System, and Slink. The cost is just 10L and that enters you into a contest to win the entire OMNI collection from the store. LaBoheme also has several store giveaways and hunt prizes for December. I suggest you stop by the store and check them all out. The phone that I am holding is by VCO for The Arcade and is just super sweet.

JOY

I stumbled upon the Pepe brand at The Chapter Four. For 50L per play you can win one of 10 Festive Nails manicure/pedicures for Maitreya Lara. I went to their mainstore and Facebook page. It seems as if the store has been open for a little over a  year. I found a handful of hairstyles, 2 of which are group gifts in certain colors, and one set each of makeup and nail appliers. As you can see, the nail polish is gorgeous.
