Favorite Things :)

I Thought I'd do a little post of some of my current favorite things right now.  Sometimes it's just the small things that can make you feel good.  It's been hard to feel good about anything lately, so much chaos and pain going on.  Right now we are all watching another monster storm head straight into more people's lives. All I can do is hope everyone can find a way to be safe..... so please be safe :(

So... I've mostly been working on things in SL, so I stay very busy and try not to think to much about anything else.  I took a break this week, and did some shopping. I slowed down and allowed myself to feel good, maybe it's not much in the grand scheme of things....but sometimes we just need some small moments, small reliefs.

C88 is full of lovely things as usual.  I don't think I have ever really been disappointed with that event.  It has been my favorite event since it began. I am fully in love with the Cynful gown, Andressa at C88 right now. I don't do gowns often, but something about the way this fit and looked....I could wear this all day and everywhere :) OHHHHH and the dress comes with a fitmesh choker!!! I love fitted chokers soooo much, wish all mine were fitmesh :D

My next favorite thing is the CATWA Pumec skin applier from the current round of Pocket Gacha....yep a gacha you can literally wear and play anywhere >< lol. It comes with matching body appliers as well :)

And of course, I am wearing my current favorite mesh head...the CATWA Lona. I switch a lot between Catya and Lona.  Love them both.  But I have had Lona on a lot lately :)

I also love this cute hair by Entwined.  I know it's a gacha, I grabbed it off  MP, but I am unsure which event it was or is at.  ooooops , sorry :P

Now for some pics :P

Hiyas :)

It has been awhile since I did a post... I didn't realize it had been so long.  Time flies when you are busy busy.  Between RL work and my inworld work....... I seem to have lost any extra time I may have had :(

So first off, I want to thank Spotlight Magazine for the lovely article they did on make up creators, they featured myself (Shiny Stuffs) and Aiubrey Snoodle (Veechi) for the May issue.  It was a honor and a fun experience being included in it, along side Veechi.  I love Veechi's work, my first Catwa eye shadows came from her store...I remember looking everywhere for quality make up and I came across her stuff.  I still have those eye shadows and I still use them :) If you want to check out the article ....it can be found HERE.  Check out the whole Magazine, it is always a really interesting read with gorgeous pics :) Veechi inworld and Mp links, I highly recommend her make ups :)

Today's look is simple and pretty.  This is pretty much what my AV has been wearing for a few days while I stand around and work on stuff.  Another thing I have not had much time for is, playing dress ups :(  I've squeezed in a couple off shopping trips, I still have unopened stuff to go through.... I have promised myself to do nothing but play dress up this weekend :D

Velvet Choker is Life!

Ahhhhh the Uber goodness is real this month :)  Uber is always one of my fave events and this round was especially fantastic.  Also.... Shoeeeees! Shoetopia.... what more can you say, it's an event for just shoes. Shoes, shoes and more shoes. Doh, now I've typed 'shoes' so many times that the word looks weird lol :P

Ok sooooo, yes...the Eclat Velvet Choker.  Why is it Life? It is rigged for mesh bodies! I normally don't feel I need rigged jewelry, as I like to be able to move it around and adjust as needed. But with chokers, I have been wanting them to be rigged.  Chokers never really sit right on the neck, so when your AV moves around, so does the choker.  This has bugged me for years.  I adore chokers, in RL and SL. In SL I collect them as I find them, and this one was an amazing find that I can add to that collection. It comes with a HUD full of colors as well.. yay!

I shopped so much at Uber and Shoetopia, that I am doing a 2 for 1 post lol.  I have a couple of outfits to show both wearing the Eclat choker of awesomeness :)
