The Magic of Reading

I love books! Reading a book can be so magical; it can whisk me away to new places, even while I’m stuck at home. When I’m not in world, I do a lot of reading.

This wonderful Paper Magic pose prop set was on sale last weekend at Disorderly for 75L. The flying pose I got free at a past La Vie en Pose event. It isn’t too late to grab some free poses at the current La Vie en Pose, which is open until April 25, 2020. The gifts are quite generous!

Nap Boat

I’m staring into space thinking about napping. Napping while rocking in a boat is the best. When I saw this Nap Boat by Brocante on the Fifty Linden Friday sale, I knew it was meant for me. There are single and cuddle poses. There is also a pool boat version for those who want to just float.

Pretty in Pink Fuel

In my last post, I mentioned going back to my Lelutka head. Then came the hunt for a new skin. My last “regular” skin was from Lara Hurley. I think their skins are perfection! But everyone has strengths and weaknesses in their designs and theirs is no exception. They excel at skins for redheads and blondes, but I wanted to get back to my brunette looks with a moderately tanned skin that looked true to tone. I hunted around for hours in vain, even trying on other Lelutka heads in an effort to mix and match.

But then I remembered Pink Fuel. I absolutely LOVE their cosmetics– one of their lipstick packs I use for my everyday wear– and I knew they had a few skins in the store. I knew I’d found a winner when I tried on the Anja skins.

  • Head — Lelutka — Chloe
  • Body — Maitreya
  • Hair — Stealthic — Ascension
  • Skin — Pink Fuel — Anja II, thin brows, Apricot shade.
  • Lipstick — this is one of the choices in the Anja HUD
  • Outfit — toksik –Airy top and skirt, pink
  • Shoes — Hilly Haalan — Stefania heels, HUD included
  • Backdrop — Foxcity — Tomorrow Photo Booth
  • Pose — beaute — sit2 (This was pulled from an AO I wore many years ago)
  • Location — Backdrop Cove
  • Lighting — Bryn Oh’s Condos in Heaven Sky 2 (which added a slightly pink tinge), Lumipro and a touch of Photoshop
