A girl after her own heart ♥

Hi there! Today I have some event goodies to show you! This round of Collabor88 is awesome and one of my favorites is definitely this long ponytail from .Olive., go try a demo cause I’m sure you’ll love it too! I picked the rest of my outfit at The Boutique, including the dress from Coquet, heels from ieQED and necklace from Cae. Isn’t it great to do all your shopping in one place? The Garden and The Poser Pavilion are right next door, so I could have bought these poses there too if they weren’t actually sold by yours truly (cof cof blatant self promotion)

As for my skin, all I have to say is that I’ve discovered Laura Hurley at the Skin Fair and I am in love. LOVE, I tell you. I’ll probably need to wear Ivy for a couple more posts, so if you were expecting variety I’m sorry, I’m staying faithful to her (at least till the honeymoon ends!). Go pick some demos – or fatpacks!- at Skin Fair today!

Grocery shopping

Hi loves! After I finished dressing up I decided I was too cute to stay at home (empty skybox cof cof) so I grabbed my tote and went shopping for some fresh goodies.

And fresh goodies are  what I’m wearing too! Isn’t my headband the cutest thing you’ve ever seen? I love giraffes in RL so I literally squeed when I got this rare from .Olive.! Of course, it’s all about Arcade these days, so make sure you hit the machine or at least some yardsales to get your Flutter hair and maybe a headband or two!

My dress and bag are from brand new rounds of The Fashion Collective and The Chapter Four, so if you haven’t been there yet you still have plenty of time to check them out! I better run now before the milk goes off. See you!

The best is yet to come <3

Hi loves! I really wanted to do an end-of-the-year post cause I’ll be taking a couple of weeks off in January. I’m on RL holidays as of TODAY! and I was looking forward to have some time to work on RL stuff and store stuff too. So hopefully 2014 will bring a few changes and news!

I’m dressed in some cute clothes you’ve probably seen all over the blogs by now, but anyway! I’m in love with my new Mandala elf ears, don’t you agree they’re just adorable? And there’s still time to get the Tableau Vivant hair for free, just join the group while the joining fee is down!

Also, in 4 days this blog will be turning one year old! I’ve been looking through old posts and I’m slightly embarrased by my oldest pics lol but I’m mostly proud of what I accomplished! It’s been a year of changes in SL for me and I’m excited for what’s yet to come. I hope you’ll stay with me during the next year! Thanks for being there through 2013- let’s make 2014 even better than this one!

Love, Connie ❤

Geek is chic

Hi there! I didn’t have plans to blog again, it’s all Geeks’n’Nerds fault. I was there like 15 minutes before crashing and I saw so much amazing stuff! You guys really need to go check it. My sweater is from ISON, you can pick the sweater color and change the pattern of the shirt via HUD. I almost threw on everything in .Olive.’s blogger box, her Sailor Moon accesories are just lovely! Also, the book geek in me is pleased with the bookstack earrings. I absolutely love the geek mugs from Atooly, the one I’m holding here says “I’m acute nerd”! There are lots of geeky decor at the event too, I just didn’t have time to go through everything but I’ve seen some beautiful furniture blogposts, so if you’re in a geeky mood do some research and go pick your favourites.

You should be proud of me, at least I managed to change my bow for another color. I think I’m gonna be wearing bows til I can change them for Santa Claus hats!

Ravens Rock!

Hello people! Yet another exciting event started yesterday, the Wizarding Faire! This awesome event is themed around all things Hogwarts- related. I’m seriously dazzled with the exceptional work of the designers taking part! What is more, there’s not a single thing that is not related in one way or the other with the magical universe of Harry Potter and its many facets. Yet I have to say that, for what I know, designers and organizers alike have been extremely careful not to infringe IP rights, which is really worth to praise after seeing many incidents caused by careless people. 

So I started doing just a little shopping here and another bit there, and next thing I knew… I owned a cauldron, a bucket of wizarding books, an owl and a witch hat (to start with!). And I realized I had neglected my magical education, cause I hadn’t been sorted into one of the four houses yet! So I headed to Pottermore and went through all the tests and came out as a proud Ravenclaw. I knew it! Now I’m ready to start reading all the books I bought before the next school year starts!

See you at Diagon Alley! Love and kisses ❤

Hawthorne’s Dusk & French Quarter

Hello guys! I swear this post could have been done SO much earlier, I was determined to catch up today with a double post for the Twisted Color Challenge but I didn’t take into account the mood swings of SL or my viewer. I tried my best, still I’m not happy at all with the pics… but it’s been almost a week without posting anything and I was already missing it!

The good part is that I got to post some clothes I’d been keeping in my “to blog” folder for a while! Some old, some new, and quite simple looks since I’ve been working my butt off for Candy Fair! If you didn’t know about it, you can check the official blog here. It’s gonna be AMAZING, the sims are being decorated at the time and they look pretty awesome! We’re presenting some sweet new poses & props (see what I did there? wink wink) and releasing Slink nail appliers for the very first time! I really hope you like the event, there’s a great team behind it and I’m sure we’re gonna have fun times! Off to the pics now!

Hello everyone! I hope you had time yesterday to pick this beautiful dress that Miel put out for Fifty Linden Friday! Their FLF fatpacks lately are just amazing, as they all include a HUD system which allows you to change textures and colors of different parts to create infinite combinations. I paired my dress with the very first Slink add on pumps that .Olive. is releasing for SL Fashion Week. There will be a full release with LOTS of new colors some time in the future, so watch out for upcoming notices!

Love and kisses ❤
