I also played around with different editing methods etc. But that’s enough tech talk for today! Let’s talk fashion.Continue reading →
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.

There are an incredible amount of amazing bloggers on the grid and it’s undeniable that my lovely friend, Hara is one of them. Her blog Twisted Euphoria features a variety of styles, ranging from casual to fantasy. She keeps her work versatile, thus it never becomes predictable. Her work is one of a kind and never ceases to amaze me.
For this photo we dressed up as sexy kitties (for your entertainment). It’s our first photo together but no worries, there’ll definitely more of Hara’s prettiness posted on my blog soon enough ♥
