I found this nifty Neve top in my closet – its called Rope and is from the neutral pack.

If you want this hair that comes with a super sized colour pack for just $50L, you’re gonna have to get your skates on – its by Lock & tuft and is their offering for Fifty Linden Friday, this ones called “sailor” and is unisex, there is another style there too – so drift on by and check it out before midnight.

The Challenge Goes kitsch !

The Challenge Kuro Kitsch_008

I’ve been impatiently waiting for this round of The Challenge, as its Kitsch and gawd I lurve that. I even had to log in from work to see a package that had arrived from [Breno] ! (YES I get that excited) Was sooper chuffed to see that it was a Marilyn inspired item – retro! Imagine this in a room, focal point, glossy lips, ciggy hanging out – LOVE it. Uber low prim, coming in at 2Li, naturally I had to squeeze in shot…

The Challenge Kuro Kitsch_004

…as I wanted to show off a coupla things Id recently bought and had given for review. Lust after my boooots , mmhmm my first purchase since getting the Slink high feet at Shoetopia. These are the demi boots by Slink, come in a range of colours (the donation colour being OMG pink squeee) Superb styling and just what I was hoping to find for Winter. My skirt is an older release from coldLogic, such a classic little piece, tight fitting mesh skirt, perfect length, called “page” and available in a heap of other shades. The short sleeved sweater top is a new release from Somnia, there is a light and dark pack “swanky shell” is the name and this is the grey from the lighter pack. Somnia is always such brilliant value so go check it out.

MOCK Golden twilight Winterberry makeover

I also must do a big fat shout out to Mock Cosmetics. I such a rubbish blogger and rarely mention everyyyything I’m wearing. Mock has saved me an absolute fortune in skins to be honest. I buy her makeovers mostly : because I’m a) lazy b) they rock. A makeover usually changes lips,eyes and sometimes cheeks. You wear it as a tattoo layer, et voila – totally different look for the skin you’re wearing!

MOCK Iron & Fire Sahne Makeover

You can also get lips creams, glosses, eye liners, blush and more ! The changes to your face can be subtle or dramatic, depends what you fancy and SO affordable. I usually go for a very natural new skin these days, as I know I can vamp it up with my makeup layers. I treated myself to two new “makeovers” yesterday, 1st photo is Golden twilight Winterberry, I also added a very light slick of Smolder crema lip colour, 2nd photo is a makeover called  Iron & Fire Sahne – now both of these are fairly low-key, which is what I wanted, but there are heavier looks available also, most of which I do own !

Bits n pieces

Voxxi & CIRCA

Ive had this dress from voxxi for a few days and havent had time to take any photos to show you. Ive been tromping about in it though as its just SO wearabubble ! One shoulder bared and a tight belt to show off your waist, simple yet effective. Its from Voxxi, who have been releasing a bundle lately, head over and take a look at the store – all very affordable. The mirror and pouffe are by an old Fav store of mine called CIRCA. These items are in the gacha machines at the Shoetopia event thats currently on. Its quietened down a lot now, so great time to go ! The pouffe’s come in heaps of colours, the rares having eight poses  in them and the commons less, the mirrors are also animated and come in black ,silver or gold – all rares , brilliant !

Slink – yes, Iam a convert !

KoiKoi group gift - for slink medium feet FREE!

I’ve long been curious about the phenomenon that is Slink, you know – the hands the feet? Absolutely ages ago I did try the demos for both. I’m really no slouch with skin tone matching or fitting shoes, but after an hour of trying to get the perfect look, I gave up in frustration.  Something that you should know at this point is: a) I do tend to harbour a grudge , for like…uhm…forever? ! b) I can be pretty lazy , shocked huh?. Thank goodness that I’m a member of SL Universe, if you don’t belong, join, it’s an external forum for all things SL related (and some that are not – but are SUCH fun!)

A couple of times threads would discuss Slink feet, and my eyes glazed over because I knew Id tried and failed. Sometimes I would pipe in and say I couldn’t get on with them and people would make helpful suggestions, but remember…”holds a grudge and lazy” right? Fast forward a few months, and since Shoetopia has been open the subject came up again, so I ventured forth and said Id given up with them…BUT…this time I noticed someone (Marianne I think) mentioned about a new alpha for the hands that revolved one issue Id had, and then Siddean Munro who makes the Slink items messaged me inworld and offered to help me also ! There was absolutely NO pressure to buy, she helped me try them on using a demo and I was stunned, within less than a few minutes, I had not only tinted them exactly to the skin I was wearing but they fitted like a dream. It’s all about the new HUD, which makes it soooo simpledimple to match skins, that’s if the skin you’re wearing doesn’t already have its own applier, if so just wear the applier and click. (even easier). Above I’m wearing the subscribo gift from newly opened KoiKoi. Just sign up and these babies are all yours. Arent they delish? Gorgeous plummy pink tone, superb suede leather effect .

KoiKoi Perfetti - gold Slink mid feet NEW!

I was so impressed I bought myself another pair by KoiKoi, these are called perfetti, they come in a range of scrummy colours but I so loved this classic gold for the season. Now check out my foot, this is what all the hoohah is about. The toes are sooper realistic and look at the skin above, can you see those teeny tiny veins? Once you have your Slink feet ( they come in three variations,flat,mid & recently added high which are, at the moment, only for sale at Shoetopia) you just buy the shoes – making sure you buy shoes for the foot you own , ie: if the shoe says “for Slink medium heel” you can only fit those shoes to that Slink foot. Wear your Slink tootsies , then add on the shoe shaper and shoes – et voila ! You can buy allll sorts of pretty add ons for Slink feet (and hands) huds with toenail polishes, although you do get a hud containing some with both the hands & feet. Kokolores has some spectacular mehndi foot tatts which I will try to blog ASAP. I also bought myself  some stockings and tights from Adam & Eve – and thats something I had been dearly missing with my GOS shoes.

Eclectica for Slink medium feet - Leather pumps and crushed velvt pumps - colour change

Now I’ve had these shoes by Eclectica in my inventory for like monthssss but couldn’t review them as I didn’t own the SLink feet – dug them out and I adore them. A real vintage style, retro but stands up today also. I’ve been wearing these with a rather slinky cocktail dress. Both pairs have a huge array of colour choices in their menus, for both trim, button and shoe colour.

GField Shoetopia gift FREE!

If you’re heading to the Shoetopia event,  snap up these sweet deck shoes from GField for free ! These are not for Slink feet, but very handy for slipping into at anytime.

Bens Beauty Group gift FREE!

Oh and because this is a shoe sort of post, I must mention these boots that are the group gift for Bens Beauty at the moment. (not sure about joining fee – I think its free) I didn’t know he had got into the shoe making business as it was all jewelry last time I popped over to the store, if these are anything to go by…Id better get over there and scope it out!
