let’s get out of this country

let’s go to the beach, chase the waves, build sandcastles that don’t look like anything at all or get our hair wet and sticky from the sea air. we’ll lie on the shore and watch the hermit crabs and decipher ammonites. shake sand out of our shoes and misplace the sunblock. we could have our own nasty cocktail mix and toss bread at the seagulls. for one day, we’ll pretend this is all we have to do for the rest of our lives. say you’d come, won’t you?

What does this city have to offer me? I just can’t see.
We’ll drive for miles maybe never turn off.

Blink.

Hiya :D i didn’t blog awhile, i hope i wasn’t forgotten. So anyway, this post is about my favorites from sl and the outfits are from a period of time so they don’t look cohesive much. I will talk you through them, hope you like them!<3
I knew I had to get this denim jacket the moment i saw it on Euphoria’s notecard. I love Mr.Poet and I have been waiting patiently for more of their releases since that off the shoulder top. I love the new sculpts and the inclusive layers(not worn here) that complete the top. However, it’s in a male style so I took a while to resize but it is worth it :D I’ve also changed the shirt layer to a loose form in order to fit the loose sleep prims. I tinted the belt to a brown shade as well. >.< i wish for Mrs.Poet!
(TokiDoki)‘s new boots are a new fav of mine! The textures in the them are very realistic and the sculpts work extremely well with shadows enabled. (no i don’t have shadows yet ): They are also available in a another fashion; shin length boots. So cute! I want a pair for myself in rl!

For this look, i wanted to create a very comfortably warm and lived in look. The grey top is from a relatively new store called Respect! and im blown away by their clothes at such an early stage. I forgot about taking a photo to show the deer sweater underneath from {MV}. I’m such a sucker for moose/antlers.
The boots are from Orion. They can provide all things tartan! I picked these in brown but they are also available in many other colors<3

I first saw these pants from [SCATTER] on the males style feed and I thought they looked very unusual, i just had to have them! I thought i got them in a dark color like what the vendor shows but putting them on reveals their denim blue shade. I might have to return to get a darker shade. The prims require modding too because they are from the men’s department.
And this jacket from Leverocci! Leverocci is an up and coming brand with its own distinct style. I wear it on many occasions. It’s one of the most original because of the pattern and its vibrant red color, which is not of my usual colors range. I’ve been asked about this jacket several times. :D of course, it’s got shoulder pads too, what’s not to love!

To creators : I sincerely apologize about if your review copies are being blogged after a very long time. It’s not the clothes. I think of ways of how I can do the reviews justice, so most of the time, the posts I have end up deleted because I don’t think the items are properly represented. Sometimes, if you want you can always remind me to blog them soon enough or to suggest a direction that you will like.

Signed I Wish You Well.

Some items used are from hunts and gifts which may not be there anymore (i hope not). I got stuck on the fourth, else this post would be out sooner!

Have been so disappointed in myself lately, been trying to blog but I end up deleting every post because nothing is good enough. you can’t believe how many pictures i’ve done and dumped. i hope you like these.

You seem like you’re unstoppable now
You take love, and keep it all somehow
It feels like all I need is your help
I’m fading, alone all by myself.

my gentle spoken friend, i lack a frame to put you in

So anyway about this look, first of all, yayy for free skins! This is one of Lelutka‘s Lola that is a gift from ORTA‘s subscribo. For the first look, I wasn’t sure about what to wear so I piled loads of random things and also kept changing parts and pieces. The brown leather jacket is from Poison, quite a label to watch! I also have some bits of clothing from the Good Shit Hunt and Song Lyric Hunt; good hunts for nice stuff although I can’t finish them because I’m rubbish at hunting. What I would like to commend most is LaGyo‘s new collection! <3 The pieces are so authentic and revolutionary! I love you you amazing piece of talent gyo!<33

You move like water, you break like waves

Three days back from my holiday and it’s scorching here! I know I’m a little late but..Merry Christmas! Today’s look is inspired by some insane artist I met on holiday, I just threw anything of alike color together and snapped some pictures ;D I couldn’t really care that I’m dressed up in almost all freebie, mehh I can’t just buy whatever I think is awesome so, yahh freebie wardrobe ftw! okayy so my post could have come earlier but I got a bit carried away by a couple of new ps brushes I found for free and these snowflakes are the most fun since crayons! I made a postcard :)) and a portrait that I didn’t mean to scare you with. I’ve got to say I don’t just have shaky hands but bad imagination so wallah an odd open-mouthed edit. ;o So anyway, I have yet to taste eggnog and to catch up with my fav tv shows and I hope everyone had a great christmas and I wish a great year ahead! omg, did i talk too much?

Bodies making chemistry

Things haven’t been going well this week for me. I had a spur-of-the-moment haircut with a friend and now I have all my long hair chopped away to chin length.

Here are two looks that I’ve randomly put together. I can’t add tags because of some internet problem, meh.
