D.Luxx Poses – The Vintage – Sugar Smacks-02
“What lies before us and what lies behind us are small matters compared to what lies within us. And when we bring what is within out into the world, miracles happen.” [often attributed to Emerson]
I’ve been trying my best to be RL world productive this week since I don’t have to work. It is amazing what I can accomplish when I get to move on my terms without a predetermined work schedule. I have done my normal flickr flips, looking at what I might like to purchase in SL, and this dress really just caught my eye. The dress, by Rebel Hope, is available at FaMESHed in a bunch of jewel tones and it is gorgeous, which I have come to expect from Rebel Hope creations. While you are at FaMESHed, you should check out Truth’s release, Tymber. I love updos!

It is Thursday. So, we need some cupcake knowledge. Did you know that there has been a 56 percent increase in cupcake sales over the last five years? Fact: More and more people are becoming cupcake crazy. True Story. Where is this going? I hope somewhere…So when I saw the nails at Limited Bazaar from Candy Nail, I logged in so fast, snatched my set, and I put them on. Immediate candy, cupcake, love. In-between blog posts, I find myself looking for them and putting them back on, just because they are sweet (drum roll). These nails might, just might give my Slink mesh hands a rest.

So my aim for this blogpost was to become one big giant piece of candy. I mean how else was I to compete with such an elaborate nail set. Many items were used in the process of becoming a piece of living candy. First, the base piece is a dress (not so new release) by Elate. I missed the release, so I FINALLY got a reason to purchase and blog it. It is perfect. I am a lemon drop. A Popsicle. I added in some contrast by using the original release in a hot pink from Tram: A cardigan draped over my shoulders. The GOS shoes in Cherry Blossom from The Boutique were the perfect shoes for this outfit. Last, I added the always sweet and delish mesh accessories by Noodles. My candy bow headband comes from 5th Year Anniversary event for Adore & Abhor, and my necklace again The Boutique.
Oh and a HUGE shout-out to Adorkable Poses. It took me forever to find a pose that remotely worked for the closeup. Thank goodness!
I most definitely have some hungry eyes going on…

So, I burned my finger. The left index finger to be exact, and every time I use it, I cringe a bit. So, realize that every letter is pain. I had mentioned two things in my previous post: IKON eyes, at The Boutique, and Glam Affair’s Zara Skin, at Skin Fair Sim 2, but I didn’t really get into why you need these purchases in your inventory OR rather why I did. You can make up your own mind.
IKON makes eyes that pop. There has to be some sort of scientific calculations to get the right amount of each color and shading, and make these eyes stand out. but I feel my eyes just sparkle in them all the time. I always mess around with other brands for bits at a time, but I also always keep coming back to IKON. The eyes don’t come in mesh, but I don’t really see the difference between IKON and mesh brands. It has to be the craftsmanship. You can find an original design out for The Boutique.
I love Glam Affair’s newest Skin Zara. So, what is so difference between Zara in comparison to previous skins: MAKE-UPS BABY!!! Glam Affair has offered many, many choices, and these choices are bound to fulfill any SLers preference–from simplistic bare to BAM! glamour palettes. The nose is a tad different on Zara-with a smoother nostril that seems to me to be more rounded, and less pinched than her predecessor Amberly. The eyebrows are a bit lighter, for blondes, on Zara as well. Amberly has a more youthful, cute pouty mouth while Zara’s lips feel more adult, sexy, and sleek. Zara also has a more rosy blush on the face with variations depending on make-up. In all honesty, side by side, Zara feels like the trendy more sophisticated older sister to Amberly. When looking at the face considering shapes, angles seem to dominate Amberly’s face while smooth circular contours define Zara. Granted, this overall review is based on my own shape, so you will have to demo and see what you think on your own too! With every skin Glam Affair puts out, I wonder HOW they can make a skin that I will love even more than the last, but they do it every single time.
As for the rest of the items I wearing, I got them because I thought I looked pretty cute in them. The weekend is near for me…I can see it on the horizon!

Tons of events have inundated the grid over the past few days, so I wanted to give you a heads up about a few of them. The 5th annual SL Buddy Walk is a charity event collecting donations for Down Syndrome Awareness. With all the other events going on, I hope all of you get a chance to stop by and see the fashion and items up for donations, and also have a chance to get social and listen to music. You can find more about the creators and the music over at their blog. Pure Poison has a few items they are giving 100 percent of sales towards this cause. I am wearing the stacked mesh bracelet, combining three unique pieces and also a pair of earrings. So, head on over to check out Pure Poison and a ton of other creators at the SL Buddy Walk.
The Skin Fair is also up and running. I can tell you I gasped when I put on Zara by Glam Affair. Your problem will be deciding which make-ups to choose or just to fatpack this greatness. I really loved all of the original makeup choices, and as always, Glam Affair has put out a stunning skin.
FaMESHed is still up and running, and you need to check out two items I really liked. The glasses by Kauna have an incredible HUD filled with choices to modify. I liked the fact they are Safety glasses and have protective sides on them–very creative twist. Baiastice also has a stellar dress out. The neckline really sold this dress for me. I loved that detail.
I snuck in a ring from L’accessoires because it matched my bracelet and earrings. The ring is also from Pure Poison. You can find them and a ton of great accessories there. Ikon’s has new eyes available at The Boutique. I will give you a better look in my next post, but they are beautiful, and need to be noted too!
As I said, TONS of events, so enjoy!

On Friday, March 15 you will get to experience The Liaison Collaborative’s The Boutique. Spring is coming, and this event is starting it off perfectly with the theme: Cherry Blossoms. The Boutique will house over 25 designers, bringing you a wide array of poses, clothing, shoes, and beauty essentials.
I am highlighting three items. First, this hot pink number comes from Peqe–form fitting and offering a detailed leather belt. The back of the dress is stunning too (see pic below)! Next, Essences will be contributing a beautiful skin, Semiluna, that has a soft feel with pink eyeshadow highlighting the eyes. Both items are beautiful! There is so many pretty things….ugh. Happiness. To express my joy, I used !bang’s Carefree Pose set. The Boutique will alternate with The Garden, a housing event. You can read more about these two events over at the Liaison Collaborative blog. I am so excited!
