Silent Valentine?

You do not need to be loved, not at the cost of yourself. Of all the people you will know in the lifetime, you are the only one you will never leave or lose.

[Jo Coudert]

Valentine flowers, Valentine cards, Valentine cookies, Valentine this and Valentine that… every where you go, you get it rubbed right in your face wether you like it or not…

But what is with those people who would like to avoid Valentine’s da?

Maybe someone lost a beloved person and does not want to get reminded?

Maybe someone had a bad experience on Valentine’s day and tries to forget?

Maybe some people believe, that Valentine’s day only was made for the retail and do not want to support that?

What ever reason people have, I think that everyone should be able to make their own decisions about if they want to celebrate Valentine’s day or not.

I do not needΒ  a special day to tell those I love how much I love them and I would not just do that on one special day. If I want to make my partner a little present, I do that on any day and as often as I want during the year. Sometimes it is just a little thing, maybe candy or something I saw and thought he would like it,Β  just a gesture or maybe just spend some precious time together. I even think it is the many little things that really show how much you do love someone else and not a huge present on a special day, that you are told by the calendar.

That brought me to today’s post as I wanted to do something different for Valentine’s day, but as well keep the typical red color πŸ˜‰

So many new events started and so many new amazing creations got released, I really had a hard time to decide what I would like to wear and use for todays pictures. I ended up with a huge mix and match for my look and as well for the set.

For the outfit I chose a combination of the new “Diana” outfit from [sYs] and a new lingerie from La Perla. You certainly can wear “Diana” without a lingerie underneath but I thought it does give a nice romantic contrast to do so πŸ˜‰

The awesome bracelets and the very special mask, I found at ROMP. When I tried the “Blinded” mask from Cubic Cherry, it immediately added a very intensive feeling to the whole look. With the metal look and the shaped eye contour, it did remind me on that old Roman theater masks.

The head piece is an art piece itself. It was made by LouLou Teichmann, owner and designer of Bauhaus Movement, and with the amazing details and the super sweet look, it made the perfect contrast to the mask.

I would like to drag your attention onto the hair a little more. Recently I discovered a new hair store. I am super picky with hair, especially with the textures, but when I tried my first Sintiklia Hair I was totally amazed. Not only the textures are awesome, Sintiklia has an amazing way how they create their hair at the base. You do not really need a hairbase with the way they do their end parts that meet the head and there is NO alpha issues at all! On many of their hair styles, they even include a style HUD, so that you can change the look of it and get more than one style with your hair. With the “Salma” hair, that I found at ROMP, you get a style HUD that gives you the possibility of 4 different ways how you can wear your hair! And usually you find a mirrored possibility if you have wisps of hair coming down at the front. So often I was cursing when the pose was not cooperation with my hair and I wished I would have had such an option to just change the side of the wisps. As if that would not be already awesome enough, with many of the Sintiklia hair you will get – besides the usual color HUDs – a tint color picker add-on HUD. With that you even can work on the shades of a certain color to match it perfectly to your skin and as well your look! You really should try some of their demos and see for yourself – I only can highly recommend it!

Another part of my post, which I would like to spotlight a little bit, is the sweet looking ‘daybed’ – if you call those things like that. It is a little stool with sweet ribbons and cute ruffles, that comes with many different textures. On the first view you would never believe what is behind that “cute mask” if you do not realize the little metal rings that are added to all the ribbons! Maybe you will get rough idea, if I tell you that the “Boudoir Bondage Stool” was made by Dictatorshop… ok the name might discover something already as well :p

This sweet little furniture you might imagine in a sweet girls room until you sat on it – and if you are a dork like me you enabled your RLV before as it said something about RLV and capture yourself on it *facepalms* It has a full ‘Dictatorshop known’ engine for all kind of couples and solos and for some poses it does even rezz cuffs and chains! What I liked most, you can pose solo in a non kinky way as well as you can roleplay all kind of scenes with it – private ones, which I resisted making picture of :p You still can get it, if you get you an actual Bound Box with a lot of other goodies in it at the Bound Box HQ!

I hope you enjoyed my little ‘different’ interpretation of my personal Valentine today πŸ˜‰

Happy Valentine’s for all who celebrate it and happy shopping!

Romantic Dreams with [AD] Creations

AD Creations 01

Today I was in a very romantic mood, when I remembered the amazing “Oltre” mesh dress from [AD] Creations. Aliza Karu again outdid herself with a fantastic unique creation, that totally caught my heart.

The amazing “Oltre” dress has a bottom long skirt with a wonderful transparent net fabric skirt on top of the opaque one, wich adds a lot of sweet elegance and gives the whole look a very playful touch. The puffy sleeves in that darker color high light the upper body part in an amazing way. The huge head-piece as well is part of the outfit. With the long tentacle looking pats in the back it reminds me very much of some couture looks, I recently saw in fashion magazines.

The tendrils that surround the whole upper body and reach down to the skirt are ornamented with beautiful roses and petals what brought me to the idea to accessorize the dress with some designs of Pixel Box, which I got recently.

The “Goth Rose Ring”, the “Gothic Roses Necklace” and the “Goth Roses” eye patch. With the rose ornaments on the jewelry items it was a perfect match to the “Oltre” dress from [AD] Creations.

The fantastic building I used for the photo comes from “Atelier Visconti” and was released at the Fantasy Faire as an RFL item called “Morgana Fountain”. It comes in 4 different versions. One as a full version and 3 different versions of a ruined one. With the sweet water lilies in the middle totally matched the tendrils that surround the body and underlined the wonderful dreamy and fantasy look I wanted for today’s post πŸ™‚

LOTD 01/27/2015 – Warm & Cozy

LEeZu+GizzA 01

Today I was in a very cozy mood so I decided to dress up kinda comphy πŸ˜‰

With the new “Ashly Leather Tunic” from GizzA and the new “Metallic Leggings” from Leezu, I exactly could match that mood. The “Metallic Leggings” are very comphy and still look tight and sexy. With the shiny metallic fabric they perfectly match the actual trend. The amazing folds at the ankles give a great realistic feeling. At the LeeZu main store you will find in 7 different colors and for this post I just picked the bronze ones to complement the brown of the top.

LEeZu+GizzA 02

For the shoes I just made the new “Lydia” booties and all the brown golden colors inspired me to do a special new color palette for some new shoes all in a brownish, black and creme/white range. This colors for me totally go with the actual season and the trend.

The “Ashly Leather Tunic” you as well can purchase in several different colors and I am sure you will find the one that suits you at the GizzA main store.

The amazing bag that I put on the table as well comes from LeeZu and is called “Loret”. The bag you can get in several colors as well plus you can change the scarf that is hanging out with a HUD that comes with to different textures.

For the furniture I used one of my favourite sofa combination from LAQ Decor and the billboard on the wall was made by LeeZu again.

LOTD 04/24/2014 – Alone…

LOTD 24042014-01

No more I’m taking this hatred from you
You make me feel dead when I’m talking to you
You take me for granted when I’m not around
So burn down your bridges ’cause I’m not going down

This time I will be heard
I’m not gonna burn
It’s funny how the table, how the table turns

I hope you’re unhappy and hurting inside
I want you to choke when you swallow your pride
Lay in your coffin and sleep with your sins
Give me the nails and I’ll hammer them in right now

This time you won’t be heard
You are gonna burn
It’s funny how the table, how the table turns

This time you won’t be heard
You are gonna burn
It’s funny how the table, how the table turns

You fake your damnation
You pray for salvation
’cause your heart is made of stone
You can die and rot alone
You can die and rot alone

Just die and rot alone

This time you won’t be heard

[Bullet for my Valentine]

Spring Time with Lybra

Lybra 001

Lybra again made a mini collection of spring or even summer awaiting designs ;).

Today I wanna drag the focus on the “Jamee” dress. All of the dresses and gowns of this sweet mini collection are full of color and aerial parts, but the “Jamee” dress really caught my attention the most, so I decided to put it first πŸ˜‰

The base of the dress is mesh made, so you can be sure it will move amazing with your avatar. The wonderful skirt accent parts at the bottom are flexible prims, wich move amazingly with every step, and some of them even go up to the hips what gives a real playful touch.

Lybra 002

At the chest a wonderful flower ornament was added, wich underlines the spring or summer touch. The whole collection was released for the K.I.D.S charity and one of the amazing dresses even was a 100% donation for even that.

Certainly I could have added a wonderful elegant updo, wich would have put the dress more towards a gown attitude, for a more elegant occasion, but I loved the simple and clean, even lightly casual touch with the short and modern hair cut from Vanity Hair. For the makeup I wanted to continue my simple and easy, casual spring look and I just added some orange nailpolish from Nailed It! and the open version of the “Diva Lips” from Silken Moon in papaya with the prim teeth attachment in pearly white,Β  that comes with the whole pack.

The furniture, that you can see on the first picture was made by Atelier Visconti. The “Sophie” set contains a table, a chair, cupcake stands and cake stand, wich you can modify and 3 super sweet and cute cupcakes. I liked the idea of a spring morning, when you can have breakfirst outside – coffee and some sweet cupcakes in the sun… what more do you need?
