I’m sure most people reading this are pretty aware that October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, this year in particular it feels like everyone is jumping on the pink bandwagon and while some of it hasn’t been so positive, raising awareness is never a bad thing.

Up until a couple weeks ago, breast cancer seemed like one of those terrible things that happens to other people, but not to anyone I knew and loved. Every time I’d hear about someone who knew someone who had it, I’d think how lucky my family was that we were all healthy and that nothing like that would happen to us. Right? Wrong. Two weeks ago, I received a phone call from my mother, telling me she had some bad news. She has breast cancer. At that moment, breast cancer became a very real, terrible thing – and it wasn’t just happening to a friend of a friends cousin, it was and is happening to my mum. We don’t know for sure how serious it is yet, but my mum is a nurse and pretty fastidious about checking these things, so we’re just hoping that it’s been caught early. In stage 1 there is pretty much a 100% survival rate, stage 2 – 93%. Those are good odds. If you catch it early.

I don’t really want to make this a huge post about cancer, there’s plenty of information online. I’ve pretty much convinced myself that my mum is going to be fine, since there’s nothing else I can think until we find out more next week.

I just wanted to say, ladies, check yo’ self and do it often.

I’ll Love You For A Thousand More

I'll love you for a thousand more

I’m realllllly feeling all the warm autumn colours the past few weeks, if my pictures weren’t enough of an indication. After spring, autumn is by far my favourite season. I guess I just like those transition months. It’s been a while since I took a picture with my bff4life, Harper, so I asked her yesterday if she was up for it, and of course she said yes, how could she turn me down!

Pretty sure I’ve written before about how much I love this girl, but I’ll say it again. All the sweet, cute, mushy, cheesy things you can imagine – that’s how I feel about her. I’m so thankful to have her as part of my life.

Anyway, onto the stuff in the picture, which I know is what you’re really reading for! Pixicat released these sweaters as part of the small Ferosh collection a couple of weeks ago, but today she’s put 2 colours – the orange that I’m wearing and a yellow – out for FLF. Don’t miss out on the chance to grab such a great bargain and pay a visit!

We’re both wearing hair that you can find at the Mystic Realms Faire, mine is by Tableau Vivant and Harper’s is from Exile. I love the flow of both of them and that they are long with hairs without being BIG, if that makes sense? Don’t get me wrong, I love a bit of volume, but not always into big cartoony or princessy looking hair. The loose curls and waves on the Tableau Vivant are just perfect, I do love curly hair in SL, probably coz my RL curly hair will never look that perfect!

The shoes on me are from Reign and are out at The Season’s Story. I love casual flats like these, they’re so easy to wear day to day. I expect if you see me around the grid just in the day time, that I’d be wearing these. A perfect inventory staple.

Cheeky Pea have released a few items lately, this autumn cosy is out at The Mens Dept and comes in several different prints, as well as both an adult and PG version. There’s also a set from them at The Season’s Story, which I used a few decor pieces from like the tall pumpkin stacks, acorn lights and the lamp ladder.

Anyway, that’s me off for the day. Hope everyone has a fantastic weekend and I’ll be back soon!

If I Lose Myself Tonight

If I lose myself tonight

Just a quickie post today but I wanted to show you this new Mae skin from Belleza that’s out at the Vintage and Cool Fair. This is currently my new favourite skin from them and I’m sure I’ll take some more pictures using it. Usually I’m into thicker eyebrows but I love the vintage feel from these thin ones, they really suit the structure of the skin. The lips and nose are absolutely perfect and the choice of make ups it comes with are all ones I’d wear regularly. Definitely worth a demo!

Also recent is this statement necklace from LaGyo, which you can find at this month’s round of C88, along with lots of matching items! Finally this amazing colour tattoo from Elska is another new release, that you can pick up at the Body Mod Expo.

One More Step To Oblivion

One more step to oblivion

As soon as I saw this new dress from Pixicat, I knew I had to take a picture with a futuristic edge. If you’re looking for a formal gown that’s daringly different, this is it. With it’s thigh high splits in the front, and metal plates on the hips, there’s absolutely nothing that says boring and stuffy about this dress. Areve from Pixicat made it as part of a small collection for Ferosh magazine, all of which you can find in her main store.

I grabbed my good friend Ms. Destiny, asked her to pose with me and decided that this new Victoria hair from Tableau Vivant would be great to add and create a fierce fashion look. Tableau Vivant recently released 4 new styles as part of their reopening, and SO many new hair textures and colours! Honestly you can have endless fun messing with the varying styles on the HUD, that include new ombres, streaks and highlights. Make sure you check them out!

Finally we finished the look with some cool new tattoos from Bolson (on me) and Reckless (on Kalli) which you can pick up at the latest round of The Mens Dept.

I can’t avoid the lightning

I can't avoid the lightning

I have another casual look of the day with things from FaMESHed to finish the week off for you, as well as it being a little photographic therapy for me!

This great jacket is from ::K:: who are a guest for October’s round, it’s also made in both male and female versions which is great for the men since they don’t typically get a lot aimed at them. I like it a lot, particularly the up turned collar. It’s fitted mesh and that that’s my only one issue with it. Honestly, I’m not a great fan of fitted mesh all the time. Perhaps it’s the style of the jacket that it’s meant to look bulky but I typically wear something that is an XS and yet I felt like this was more of a M. On the plus side that does mean it’s easier to wear mesh pants under it. Even though I decided not to!

Another new item are these great Penny boots from JD – also a participating guest at FaMESHed. They come with the mesh socks included, which you can show/hide and texture change via the HUD. There is also a Belleza Venus and The Mesh Project version included, so you can wear them with your mesh bodies! They’re a perfect staple for the cooler seasons approaching, and I highly recommend them.

Hope everyone had a good week, here’s to the weekend!

Let’s Not Pretend

Let's Not Pretend

FaMESHed opened yesterday and I have to say, this is probably my favourite round in a loooong time. You can find almost everything I’m wearing (minus the hair) there. The hat and jacket I’m wearing in this pic are by Coco for this month. Of course Coco have made other jackets shaped like the hand is in the pocket and I’m sure they have a huge success with them, since no one else really offers that thing. I’m sure bloggers and photographers especially love that look, as it means we can add a little more realistic look, rather than being kind of static all the time. The hat is made by them too, as well as a pair of tailored trousers that match (although I’m not wearing them now).

I decided to mix the outfit up a bit by wearing these fab leggings from Mutresse and adding the oh so trendy platform boots from Reign. All of these can be picked up at FaMESHed too.

It’s really a great round bursting with trending, fall items, amazing hair styles and some gorgeous furniture.

Make sure you don’t miss it!

Meant To Last Forever

Meant to last forever

Got a little bit of “high fashion” for you on this Tuesday! Obviously this isn’t the kind of thing you’d catch me walking around the grid in, although I can’t say the same for Oakley. But that doesn’t change the fact that I absolutely love it. You can find this great set from Aphorism at The Gathering, a new gacha event which opens tomorrow.

These 2 luscious hairstyles we’re wearing are new from Littlebones who will be participating in October’s round of FaMESHed, opening tomorrow!

Finally, I adore these Anastacia stilletos from JD, which are out at the new round of Uber which opened today. They come in both leather and patent versions, as well as being made to fit the JD MyFeet, SLink, The Mesh Project and the new Belleza Venus body. Such a sexy shoe and what a great buy!

Hope everyone is having a good start to their week and saving all the pennies for the flurry of events opened and opening in the next few days!

All those fairy tales are full of it

Quick LOTD for you this evening! Uber is open for just a few short more hours which is where you’ll find this amazing over sized coat from Ryvolter. It comes in some different coloured check versions, as well as the hounds tooth that I’m wearing, which is a trending pattern for this season.

I’m wearing a new hair from Tableau Vivant that you can find at Creation JP and I have to say that I am loving the beehive styles lately so this ponytail version is a welcome addition to my horde.

These shoes from Just Design aren’t new, but I thought it would be worth pointing out that they have now been adapted so they will fit 4 different types of feet. That’s the JD MyFeet, SLink, The Mesh Project and the Belleza mesh body! All of Just Design’s shoes will be made for these feet going forward, so make sure you keep an eye out for new releases.

That’s all from me today!

You’re My Downfall

You're my downfall

The Belleza Venus mesh body was officially released this weekend on the new Belleza sim, if you haven’t checked it out yet, it’s a must! It’s been a while since I grabbed the gorgeous Oakley Foxtrot for a piccie, so this is us trying our very best to be patient for tattoo appliers for the body. We’re also sporting the pretty, new Yasmine skin that was released from Belleza a couple of days ago too.

Just a quick LOTD pic for you today, since I wanted to show this amazing new biker jacket from Pixicat. It’s out now at Kustom9 and is a perfect item for the cooler seasons to come. Also recent are these realistic Chelsea boots from Just Design that you can grab both male and female versions of at The Mens Dept.

Also, Neva’s Sky Villi sim is now decorated for autumn and you can bet I’ll be taking a lot of pictures there since it’s absolutely one of my most favourite locations in SL.
