Is it a Sin?

So, this morning I log in and see this great NC and Texture Add from CStar about  a “Think Pink Hunt” so I decided I haven’t done a hunt in awhile so why not.  Well, I had EVERY intention of blogging about all the AWESOME things I found today, and they are AWESOME, but…While in one of the stores I found this CUTE top that matched one of my new skins. LOL SO I lost focus and decided to share this look with you.

Styling isn’t always one of the easiest things for me, but something that I do on a constant basis is use my skin as an accessory.  There are so many fabulous skin designers out there that deserve just as much attention as the clothing and accessory designers.  Here I am showing the newest from Unico Solo of CStar Skins.  There is something about the Glam *Snap* skins that Unico does that make me run screaming for her store every time she announces a new skin.

**Be sure to do the Think Pink hunt because Unico has TWELVE of her NEWEST line of skins hidden in the store!!!*

How could this “Apple” be a sin when it looks so damn good!? So having this new beautiful skin (Apple) from Unico, I have been trying to decide what would be the best way to photograph it. What do I have that I could wear with it…because this time, the skin wasn’t an accessory but the main player.  Well, like I said…I found it!  Here I am wearing the super cute and shiney Lace Tank Dots Pink from Frank Windlow of Onyx Wear.  Also, from Frank, I have on the Skinnys Lineage Dark Pants which, I have to say, are now my favorite pair of skinny pants.  The fit perfectly and look amazing with any look from, Casual Chic to Glamor Fierce!

Having fallin in love with Non-Alpha lashes, I had to go get some new ones to wear with this look from monica Outlander of Miamai.  Here you see style N18.  Something about that lash going down the cheek screams to me…Circus clown?  Its FABULOUS!  I must admit though my hair shopping has been quite lame and as sad as it makes me feel, I am super excited to have found out about some of Truths new hair.  Here I am wearing the Tilly Streaked in Java by Truth Hawks of Truth Hair.  I have to say I LOVE THE STREAKS!  When you buy the hair that comes with the streaks, you get with and without.  So you get like DOUBLE the hair for your money.  HELLOOOOOO!  So its laggy right?  WELL, TRUTH has all their demos on xstreet….buy the demos, try them on decide if you like them, go in with a shopping list honey and BUY BUY BUY!  I personally bought 3 just today. *hides receipt from Brock and smiles pretty*

I am loving this look so much today that I don’t give a rat patooty if this skin is to avant garde to walk around in or not.  I am lovin it and I wanna wear it!  Come on girls, lets have us one hell of a PINK PARTY!!!

Garded Secret

Do You Have a Secret?

Well I do, but now I am sharing! Garded Secret is NOW OPEN! The very lovely and talented Talyia Tarber has put away her camera at Kiss My Camera to focus on her new passion. Skin creation! Garded Secret will be the worst kept secret in SL once everyone sees what amazing quality and detail she has put into these skins. I must admit, that when I came back from my month long “Vacation” and she told me she had a surprise, I was mighty nervous! Though, I am a woman, I am not a big fan of surprises. So when she tp’ed me to her store in Fashion Palace, I was blown away. Not only has she created a new path for herself to explore but she has done so brilliantly.

One of the MANY things she has for us is with every purchase you will receive a token. Once you have gotten 5 tokens you get a free skin! 6 Skins for the price of five! WOOHOO!!!

She currently has one series going up as she makes them which are the “Charmed” series and I must say, they are VERY charming! Here is an up close look of the first one she has out, “Nude”:

I know that its not an everyday looking skin, but she is working on that but keeping it with her flashy and runway ready look.  After a bit of talking with some of the customers she decided to get a second skin out in a flash.  I have to tell you, when she tp’ed me in to see it…I nearly fainted.  It is so gorgeous!  Here is an up close look of “Dazzle me Pink”:

So beautiful!  Now, her skins do come in 5 different skin tones.  The one shown here is “Fair”.  She has Pale, Fair, Tan, Bronze, and Dark bronze.    She also has some GREAT little extras she adds with her skins.  You don’t just get beautiful skin!  You get Eyebrow shapes, then you have brow color choices; light or dark, then the best of them all.  How many of us LOVE wearing prim nails but HATE matching that stupid glove to match our skin tone?  Well, Talyia has fixed that, she has created an optional skin that has NO nail on it.  So you are ready to attach those prim nails and go without a worry!  How brilliant is she!?

PLEASE go check out Garded Secret and look at the beautiful skins Talyia has to offer.  You never know what she will have in store for you!  She has many more surprises coming your way so keep your eyes open and your wallet lined with plenty of lindens because you will NOT want to miss this secret!
