This is going to be a quick post, as I’m on my way out of town for the weekend … for some great fun, lots of chocolate, and much soul re-charging. I’m wearing the gorgeous newest release from Belleza … Erika. I love trying out as many skins as I can afford, but there are a few tried-and-true that I can count on always working for me… and Belleza is one of them. These skins have a great belly button (yes — that’s important to me… i show it a lot!), and lovely fingernails. I’ve always enjoyed the face on Belleza skins… especially the full lips). Go try out a demo if you haven’t already — and you’ll have to check to see if you can still pick up the group gift skin (fee required to join the group, but so incredibly worth it!)

Color Challenge: Week 11 Indigo

View Hi-Res Enlargements on my Flickr Stream

This week, I think I had exactly one thing in my inventory that was actually labeled “indigo” — and it was these terrific pants from Fear & Clothing! I was delighted to get a chance to wear my blue boots from Shiny Things. I really don’t get to wear this pair too often, ’cause, as you can see, it can be hard to match with other blues.

For actual newness in this picture — I’m wearing the newly-released Claire skin from Tuli. I’m in love with this great face! This isn’t the only new release Tuli has out currrently — so be sure to go by and check out all the demos. And in case you haven’t gotten the word yet — Tuli has gifted her VIP group with a big tattoo layer set of good stuff. Check your notices if you missed it.

Just for fun this week — I’ve temporarily marked down the necklace that I’m wearing in the picture (to 40L), and have set out free earrings to match. Find them both at Magpie. This is a limited time offer, so hurry on down!

Somehow the last week or so kinda got away from me, and I wasn’t sure I was even gonna get this post up! But — I’m starting to get a little proud of myself … I haven’t missed a week yet, and have even snuck in a few other blog posts along the way. I must have been feeling a little summery when I put this look together. This is a great little dress from Sn@tch that doesn’t need a whole lot extra for a pulled-together look.

The poses are from !bang — a new-to-me poser. Very cute, and just a little quirky … I admit these poses were a little different than my usual to work with … but I had actually resolved this year to get a little out of my posing comfort zone. I think these poses are going to be great for some really fun photos~

Color Challenge: Week 9 Silver

I’m ringing in the New Year with this lovely party dress from Redgrave — very silvery, and great for dancing. The fringe on the dress has some nice movement for a dynamic look. After all — if you are going to a party, you want to be noticed, don’t you?

I had the great pleasure of ringing in the New Year with some lovely new friends at The Rusty Nail. This little gem of a club is honestly one of the friendliest and fun places I’ve frequented… with DJ’s that will bend over backwards to play anything you want to hear. And did I mention the bumper cars out back? Although you are likely to run into folks any time of the day or night… most activity seems to start around 6slt, and usually rocks well into the night. If you stop by, you are likely to see me there — and if not — tell them Kieve sent you 🙂 [nah — they won’t throw you out — I promise!]
