getting aHEAD with LAQ, Stix, and Alaskametro!

Hello. My name is Skyler, and I have a bento mesh head addiction. I've got Catwa, Akeruka, Logo, Lelutka, and more, but there's always room for one more, right?
 RIGHT NOW, until December 24th, 2017, Laq's NEWEST head, Neve, is just $L500. Let me repeat that...$L500, for a BENTO head that uses mocap animations, and comes with a full-featured HUD. no extra animation HUDs to buy here, AND it's omega-compatible out of the box! In the pics below I am wearing the default face shape that comes with the head, but since it's bento, you can adjust it to your liking!

I am wearing it with the Stix skin Qamra, which is out right now for just $L99 per skin tone at The Makeover Room! I am wearing the skintone Cream, but it also comes in Snow, Butter, Puddin, and Chocolate. Each tone looks as delicious as it sounds, by the way! Each tone includes: system skins, Omega (for Heads & Bodies), TMP Body, Soul Ears, Logo Ears, Slink for Hands & Feet. There are options for monolid and lidded, 3 different brows (and browless), 3 different nipple options (and one without), 3 options for your "lady garden", and even a matching nail applier. I love how sweet and realistic this skin is, and the red nose is just precious! Don't miss this at the Makeover Room! [NOTE: the shine on the lips is from my head, which supports omega materials, not painted on the skin!]

Since the Stix skin is beautifully bare, and the Laq head is omega-compatible, you can use omega makeups! Alaskametro has some absolutely beautiful ones out right now at On9! I'm wearing the Fey lipgloss, and soiree eyeshadows. Each comes in 6 colours, and not only features omega appliers, but also system layers, and head-specific appliers for catwa and lelutka with an option for materials or no-materials! Both makeups are currently on sale for just $L75 each at On9. The shadows feature an array of shimmery metallic nude tones that will compliment any skintone, makeup, and outfit. They are perfect for a party or evening look! The Fey lipglosses feature sheer colour, but are packed with subtle glitter flakies to put your look over the top.

Finishing off my look is the lovely Kristal bodysuit, which is also from Alaskametro! It's currently available at Applique and is just $L100 for each of the 6 colours. The pack features system layers, and appliers for omega and the maitreya body; both with shimmery materials! I love this bodysuit because it's so easy to pair with jeans, skirts, or even just some stockings, or heels!

It's my birthday, babies!

Hey guys! The best day of the year is FINALLY's.... MY BIRTHDAY!
If you've been following me for a bit, you know that every year on my birthday I go out and buy myself something I've had my eye on, but couldn't justify the cost of normally.... basically #TREATYOSELF! This year is absolutely no different, but I think I went a lil overboard...I not only got a gorgeous new outfit, I went ahead and bought myself the Belleza Jake body! (Which you will see in my next post)

It's my birthday, babies!

And now I'm back, out of the blue... [MANY PHOTOS, SORRYNOTSORRY]

Hey guys! I've been gone a while, I know... the TL;DR version of the mess is: dead wi-fi. You can guess how much fun it's been for an SL junkie like me to be stuck with wi-fi that is so slow, I couldn't take pictures or even teleport! Thanks to my absolutely incredible partner, I've got something that works like a charm (most of the time), and now I'm back, out of the blue...

back, out of the blue_001
Or, I suppose, in this case, out of the briny green! A friend of mine linked me these absolutely gorgeous mer-tails from Cynefin and I  just could not resist picking up the Holographics II pack to show you guys! These tails are bento-enabled, materials-enabled, and fitted to the Maitreya body. You may be able to fit it to something else, but I'd recommend trying the demo. While the pack does not come with a full mer-AO (as most tails do not), it DOES include some lower-half animations that make it compatible with almost all AOs, human, and mer alike, and a poser HUD  that lets you move the tail into different positions when posing!

back, out of the blue_002
Something not many people know about me: when I joined SL for the second time (this is my third avatar), after being inactive for many many years, I desperately longed to be a mermaid...So, I grabbed some tails, a mer-translator, a freebie AO, the works, and I would just spend hours and hours swimming on the mainland seas. This tail fulfills my every mermaid dream, and takes me back to those fond old times.

back, out of the blue_003
In case the sheer number of photos in this post don't scream this fact: I absolutely ADORE this tail. Good luck getting me out of the water!

Baby, what's your sign?

[Have you ever started a blog post, and just have it come out completely wrong? I have been working on this post for.... about a month or so now, and I've written it, no lie, probably about 5 times. I have photographed and re-photographed for this post over and over, and it never reached a point where I was completely happy with it until now (finally...)]

For all the time I spend in the water, you would think I was an Aquarius, or maybe Cancer, but no, I'm actually a Scorpio... but that's beside my point. Astrology is a brand-spanking-new hair store (formerly Alice Project!), that made their debut at May's round of Uber... and what a glorious debut it was!

I simply cannot get over how gorgeous the new Astrology hair is! The textures are so lovely and shiny, they look like real, perfectly healthy hair, and every colour and shade is realistically tinted. No fake looking hair colour overlay here! Astrology even uses a special HUD system that lets you make your own packs and demo all of the colours, as well as change things like part colour, right/left colours, baby hairs, and more. I attempted to take some GIFs of the sexy HUD action, but my GIF program decided it didn't like to make them as large as I needed... so you'll have to go and check out the HUDs for yourself in their main store! Even the demo features completely working HUDs!

My sweet vintage-style swimsuit is a brand new group gift from Belle Epoque! The group is $L10 to join, but I feel like that's totally worth it to snatch up this lovely vintage-inspired suit. The Daisa swimsuit comes in Maitreya size only, but includes a HUD to change the top and bottom independently to any of the included 6 textures. Mix and match to your hearts content!

Finally, my nails are out right now at the Vintage fair and are from Dark Passions! Each pack contains 12 different vintage-inspired nails, which are available in Maitreya, Omega, or Slink, and each pack is on sale for just $L100 (or $L275 for the fatpack!) at the fair!

I'm still here... and I'm so cute.

Hey guys, if you've been following me for a while, you know I do a post every year about this time that's just... dedicated to me. I treat myself a little bit more kindly, and even buy myself new shiny things to remind myself that I'm still alive... because this time, 4 years ago, I almost wasn't.
I won't bore you with the details, but you can find them here --->

I'm still here... and I'm so cute._004
I think I went a *little* bit overboard this year, but I did spread my spending out instead of doing it all in one day. This year I pre-ordered myself the cutie loot box for this month, got some new nails from Dark Passions at the Fantasy Faire, and also got the new Catwa Lona Bento head to celebrate being alive!

I'm still here... and I'm so cute._001
I am absolutely OBSESSED with the new Truth group gift! It's a preview of their new project, and this stylist HUD is absolutely insane. On top of the incredible number of colours you get in the gift pack, you can also physically CHANGE the hair with a click of a button. Can you say amazing? (sorry for the GIF quality, blogger threw a fit over the higher quality image i tried to post!)

Pretty in Pastels? or Darling in Darks? - TheSLChatterbox Cross-post!

Hey guys! I am back again with my bestie from The SL Chatterbox for another cross post! We decided it had been way too long, so we put together something cute, fun, and matching. We didn't have to look too far for something, because {vincue} & Kibitz seemed to be thinking on our wavelength with their new Harty Gacha! We each put together outfits in our personal style with some of the pieces, and added on to them, of course!
