Easter Surprise

I went out this morning to check on the chickens and I found this adorable bunny sitting in the box. I just love bunnies!

The Blogger at Home

I am spending the day at home catching up on my blogging. I try to work a few days ahead. I actually write two blogs — one in SL and a real life book review blog. Don’t tell me about any amazing sales and freebies today. I need to get some work done!

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.

!gO! Orange

I should be unpacking my Friday and Saturday sale purchases as well as everything I got from the two hunts I did this week, but as usual, I got distracted by a sale ad and wandered off to !gO!. I hadn’t been in this store for about three years and was delighted by some of the things I saw. This dress is the current group gift.

Learning to Wear Yellow

In real life, I NEVER wear yellow. My skin has an olive cast and frankly, the color makes me look green. That’s not the best skin color for anyone except maybe a Martian. This made me shy away from wearing yellow in SL, but I’m learning that yellow is a great color against my current favorite skin.

Hair Today, But Gone

I was digging through my closet, looking at hair I hadn’t worn in years. I came across this cute style by Argrace called Hatsune. The style is a perky chin length cut with wisps the move in the breeze. The braided front is held in place by a colorful scarf, which was a perfect spot of color for my little black dress.

Alas, it seems that Argrace has discontinued selling their older hair. The large store where this photo was taken has a few newer mesh styles.
