Wasabi Duo

Wasabi Pills is one of my all-time favorite hair stores. I discovered them back in 2013, prior to creating my current avatar. Fast forward to 2016, I am happy to share that I am now part of their official blogger team. I am deeply honored and incredibly grateful for this wonderful opportunity.

MissAllSunday Lemon regularly releases new hairs at various events. In my picture I am wearing the Aspen hair which was previously available at The Forest and the Deirde hair, which you can currently find at Collabor88. I used the Lunar HUD for both of the hairstyles. This colour pack contains sweet ombre colours, in regular as well as rooted versions.

I also made a short video, showcasing a few of the newest Wasabi Pills releases: https://youtu.be/XdwH5dWySCs

“All my heart, it breaks every step that I take
But I’m hoping that the gates,
They’ll tell me that you’re mine

Don’t make me sad, don’t make me cry
Sometimes love is not enough and the road gets tough
I don’t know why

Choose your last words
This is the last time
Cause you and I, we were born to die”
– Lana del Rey, Born to Die

LAQ Trinity Head

LAQ recently brought out their first mesh head, Trinity. The head has a very sophisticated and chic vibe to her and though that usually isn’t quite up my alley, I fell in absolute love with Avi-Glam‘s head applier, which was specifically created for the LAQ head. The head applier is currently available at Cosmopolitan until the 13th, but not to worry, she will also be available at the Avi-Glam mainstore afterwards.

To get back to LAQ, I can’t wait to see what Mallory and Winter come up with next. I have high hopes for their future releases as the quality of Trinity- and LAQ products in general, certainly does not disappoint. A few customer favorite skins have also been turned into head appliers, all of which have a completely unique but equally dazzling appearance.

Can’t get enough of the LAQ head? I will be showing several head appliers and cosmetics for Trinity in the final part of my MBA Fair Event Overview. Part one, which will be all about apparel (alliterations FTW!), will be uploaded later tonight. Stay tuned!

Tennis Court

I will admit that I have never been a huge fan of Lorde in the past but since I started listening to her music (aka today), I started to understand the hype around her. She is incredible and has such an iconic vibe and aesthetic to her. Her song, Tennis Court, had the perfect sound for a day like this where I simply stare out my bedroom window and my mind lingers off to the greyscale clouds, waiting for the rain to fall. In the meanwhile I hear the electronic drums beat and Lorde’s soothing voice echoes in my ears.

I have a tendency to easily forget things but it’s moments like these that I don’t want to forget. Even the smallest aspects of my carefree summery life are meant to be unforgettable. I may not live the ideal young, wild and free life and my life may not look like an indie music video but even these seemingly small moments in which I simply listen to Lorde whilst philosophically staring out of my window are worth remembering. I started keeping a journal, besides my Second Life one, which has helped me improve my memory whilst expressing my emotions and reactions to everyday scenarios in a creative and inspiring way. Reading back about certain forgotten adventures and mischief, how big or small, made me realize that every moment spent doing the things you love or being around the people you love is worth remembering… remember that ♥

“Because I’m doing this for the thrill of it, killin’ it
Never not chasing a million things I want
And I am only as young as the minute is full of it
Getting pumped up on the little bright things I bought
But I know they’ll never own me”
– Lorde, Tennis Court

CATWA Amy

CATWA Amy Head

Amy was the first doll head released by Catwa during June. Amy is absolutely adorable and lovely and besides her dolly look, she can also be worn more casually with the right appliers. In today’s vlog I will be showing most of Amy’s animation HUD options as well as her look with several different, but equally incredible, appliers.

The Sn@tch Book

The Sn@tch Book
Click to enlarge

The Lookbook is one of my new Flickr albums in which I will display a collection of outfits compiled to show off a certain style, item, brand or event. Lookbooks tend to inspire me, both in real life and on Second Life. One lookbook that recently sparked such inspiration in me was the Inspiration lookbook, which I find a very suiting name, by the wonderful Tarani Tempest. She displayed a set of outfits which all looked very unique yet in some way, they matched perfectly.

The inspiration for my lookbook today comes from one of my favorite stores on the grid, Sn@tch. Sn@tch was founded in 2007 by Ivey Deshanel and has been around ever since. The store offers a variety of products ranging from appliers to various mesh items. Ivey uses Omega appliers which does not only make it easy to use but that also makes all of her appliers useable for many mesh bodies.The system layers are also included for those who still use their system body.

If you are not familiar with the Omega system or would like to know if your mesh body is also omega competible, I recommend you take a look at their blog which contains a lot of information and also lists all of the supported meshes.

Whisper is a relatively new Second Life store found by Rosey Porter. Whisper specializes in various original mesh items and also sells the matching full permission meshes. Make sure you read the Whisper TOS before purchasing the full perm meshes though.

I’ll be keeping it short today since I still have a quite some blog posts and lots of other work to do but I wanted to end this post by sharing my “tune of the day”. Once again, I was inspired to do this by my wonderful soul-sister Ever, who lately has been sharing a few of her favorite tunes as well. Music has always played a big role in my life and it always delights me to see that others share that very same passion. Today I will share one of my favorite songs by the wonderful Lana del Rey.

“When I saw your face it was incredible,
Painted on my soul, it was indelible.
We celebrate our twisted fate,
We’re the broken ones”
– Lana del Rey, Queen of Disaster

Playing Around Before The Party Starts

Playing Around Before The Party Starts
Click here to enlarge

I’ve constantly been listening to K. Flay since I found her through Kinda Neat on YouTube. Earlier today I shared the song she performed for Kinda Neat, “FML”.
Even though the song title I used for this blog post is not one of hers, I’d still like to share some of her lyrics:

“Static on the line, I hear it all the time
But I’m quiet when you make me fade
Feel it coming back, watch it turn to black
But I’m brighter when you make me fade”
K. Flay (Make Me Fade)

Her music reminds me of Tove Lo, who has also been one of my favorite artists for about a year already. They have a similar voice and sound, their music sounds very hazy. It’s not necessarily trippy but it still feels like you’re kind of high all the time, which is a rather bad Habit. I’m Not On Drugs, truly!

On another note, I went to TETRA today and picked up this assymetrical skirt. It appealed to me from the moment I saw it. I figured it was a must have, for me at least since it can be worn in various ways. For this post I styled it rather casually but you can also wear it with a lavish blouse or even a cropped top and match it with some dazzling accessoires to create a more luxurious look. Or perhaps you could add a bikini top and some flip-flops and spend a nice day at your favorite beach.

After finishing my shopping spree at TETRA, I went to one of my new favorite destinations, La Vie. It is unfortunately only opened for a limited time, all the more reason to visit it as soon as you can!

This is one of the rare occasions on which I post twice a day. I usually already struggle posting on a daily basis, especially now that my final semester is about to end but since I Can’t Sleep, I figured I would have time for a second post. I suppose these are enough song references for today. I wish you all a wonderful day or night, wherever you are, my lovely readers!
