Romi-nticise Me

Sometimes it all just comes together so well…pretty eyes,gifty hair and skin , something old, something new and surroundings that make you feel happy- so I share such a day with you.

Romi Skins also have several  ranges of beautiful  eyes. I went for the Milky Way eyes in black and darkest blues – they set off Romi’s ubercute skins perfectly and are non-prim but very reasonable at 80L for three pairs.

I must apologise- the Olive pair shown here were a dollarbie , but no longer on offer…However I did go full on Romi (including shape) in the second pic, with this lucky board/ group skin and the adorable Cloud glasses (*Note to glasses makers* Thank you SO much when you supply them with multiple attachment points- it’s great to have the option, even though my inventory frequently groans at me!)

First pic taken at  this adorable sphere of shabby chic loveliness is actually the Cache Cache Cafe, I discovered perusing the profile of its creator Vivian Jinx who also runs the pose store Poison. I later spoke to her and she said she was delighted people liked the place and encouraged more visitors! I’m sure you will love the tranquil environment and its muted tones -there’s a lot to interact with and enjoy.

As to the non-eye stuffs featured- I honestly think this sleeveless sweater from SMS is one of my favourite purchases all year- it really was a case of “I must have that very one!”- so crisply detailed and fitting in with my current passion for a the “girly side of androgyny” look that seems to influence my choice of wears very much. No apologies for wearing this skin way too much- my most treasured of several Lucky Board wins at Mother Goose’s. The hair is the current group gift at Zero Style.

My first blogger challenge – random album!

After seeing a couple of intriguing images on Plurk tonight, I found out people were showing their creations regarding  creating an album cover using random images and quotes– how fun! I guess mine would have been just for fun …except the hand of fate dealt me an ocular related card lol! So here be it….

Proper SL posties soon when I figure out how to make a cracking little collage of my pretty swing adventures (no not THAT sort of swinging, mucky minds!)


Took piccies a few days ago, then decided to crop it all back to the stunning focus-  this exquisite bejewelled eyemask tattoo layer from Miamai and diamond tipped lashes that also demand the wearer be the very epicentre of attention!

Please add your own sumptuous gown, jewelry and finest heels for a complete transformation into the belle of the ball! Couldn’t help including another snap, featuring the glamorous Willow skin from Kira Paderborn, 2 versions of which are only 50L in today’s Monday Mania promo!

Another kwikkie today but had to share as I fell in love with the new unisex but to me beautifully elfin cropped Ken hair from Kik and squeed with delight over their 20L nature inspired glasses and I was so lucky- got all different ones! The antlers are my fave but piggy ears, leaves, little horns and cute mushrooms can all be found adorning these woody specs. Nearby two pairs of glasses with 7 colour changes for just 40L! So if you fancy something different, please go check out the cute glasses at Kik. Also thanks Eden Knoller for the mouth sticker- I love it! All eyes are from Negaposi- they truly are masters of the glossy, shiny, mysterious, expressive eye and here are some great bargains to be had!

Please Sir, can I have some MHOH?

Just a quick post I’ve been meaning to put up for a while – sorry! Here’s my trusty alt to show off a couple of finds from the Make Him Over Hunt that would work great for anyone. Kumaki Glasses Style always bring out eyewear of superb quality, and while not fully scripted, these shades do change position from nose to forehead and are a lovely shape. There are always some funky glasses to be found on the Lucky Boards and they have a gacha machine now too!

Genome Lab offers four pairs of eyes in striking shades of green with realistic vein detail.

Piercing the Gloom

We’re not yet at the point of glorious russet leaved autumn -more four seasons in one day, beaming sunshine one day, thunderstorms and chilly apathy the next but our Fall into autumn in SL is already so pretty, we are not so sad to rummage in inventories for chunky knits and rich, harvest shades.

I was thrilled to check out the new range of Amare  Eyes from Aphotic Gloom– its creator Rico Plisskin has give them a painstaking 45 layers of detail and the range comprises 6 colour packs with 8 pairs in each. The eyes have a strong fantasy element, great depth and detailed scleral (eye white) shading and for those unsure of the appealing large pupils, a “blank” eye layer then allows you to adjust the size of the pupil via the prim- ingenious, non? The eyes are dark and mysterious but offer such delights for close-up photography ..and gazing into one’s significant other’s eyes maybe?

I snapped up the Golds pack for starters, to add a new element to my ever burgeoning eye closet (ooh how macabre is she…now I want SL cupboard full of eyeballs lol!) and where better to head to than the Nordari sim, Lusiades- where better than to scuff the leaves with your boot and sigh as the chilly wind ripples the lake’s perfect surface.

Had to quickly dash back to Rebel Hope Designs, where the collection is being sold, as I heard Rico had generously provided a dollarbie version..and the colours of this are truly unusual and exciting- I struggled so hard against the computer and SL to take piccies so please forgive..and enjoy..and go get!! A new collection is already on the drawing board – great news!

Eye Wear:

o-Eyes-o : Aphotic Gloom Amare eyes (Golds) Amber-Yellow + delicious dollarbie!

o-Eyelash Tattoo-o : B[u]Y Me Skins Lashes and eyeliner (only 19L!)

Watch the Birdeye!

Following a random tip from a group (about light rays actually) I find myself at the rustic shoppe of delights that is Nordari in it’s now beautifully autumnal scenic setting.As the attractive prefabs and homey stuffs rezzed delivering me from my SL myopia (how art mirrors life) to clear focus, I gasped at what appeared to be…glasses..made of wood- complete with grass and gasp! a bird that tweets when you click on it! How utterly fabulous and  bumper pack of Summer Memories glasses in 4 zingy colours is also available nearby. 

My new frames chirped out to be teamed up with the cutesy, kookie and rather me dress from Tiny Bird, initially brought to my attention by my friend and Freebie Fashionista, Claire.

Oh the eyes! Brandy Rasmuson of Shine has just brought out her first range of prim eyes and I have shown 2 colours in different shots, as they look magically multifaceted from different angles- they seem to go so well with this vintagey Fashionably Dead skin and I reckon Monet would have been proud to lend his name to this digital age work of art. Certainly made an Impression on me!

Forgive me- couldn’t deviate from the birdy theme- love this Blue Bird pose set from No Strings Attached and Actchio tattoo and after initially buying the style in brown , loved the special Hair Fair gift version of this crazy, fun Clawtooth do (and sigh wish my own RL bird’s nest hair looked half this awesome lol).

o-Glasses-o Nordari  Birdy- my little friend

o-Dress-o Tiny Bird – Painted Flower dress (nude) Lashes also from Tiny Bird (were part of Fifty Linden Friday and still 50L for 3 pairs I think)

Starry-eyed Surprise

I see my fated stars in your eyes.

They melt me like the sun does snow  

I was originally inspired to write this post over a week ago (arghh!) when I heard the inimitable (despite some people’s best efforts) Bronson Twine had decided to call it a day on his iconic Ir(regular) Guy blog and I was kinda muhuh.  However please don’t say grey is boring, oh no and ESPECIALLY not in the field of SL eyes, as personally I find grey/ silver eyes some of the most striking around.

While thinking of grey, I could not help but mention the upcoming “Wear Gray for a Day” event, coordinated with tireless enthusiasm by Sanura Snowpaw in aid of the American Brain Tumor Association- maybe you hadn’t considered grey eyes, when pondering what to wear to support this worthy cause? Visit the official website for more information about the event running between the 12th and the 25th September and do your bit for the cause.

Here are 6 of my favourite grey eyes in Second Life and believe me , I had a hard time choosing!

None of these eyes are truly “coloured prim” eyes but the L.Fauna and Mynerva have extra prims to add a special glint and shine.

I will put the individual pics on my Flickr, in case you want to see each eye in more detail.

I have long been a huge fan of Shine Eyes, as for lucid brilliance for a very modest price, I find them hard to beat and I wear this Lustrous Argent pair A LOT.

Pulse eyes have the most amazing shadows in them and a glassy clarity, coupled with realistic scleral (white of the eye) shading.

Hermony eyes seem to couple a gritty realism with a fantasy element seamlessly and I have to admit my own pupils widened with delight and my brain said WANT!! as soon as I first saw the eye vendor in store.

L.Fauna eyes have become a fairly recent joy and seem to burn through you with their large-pupilled vivid colour- each pair has 2 types of prim to experiment with.

These Detour Crystal Eyes were one of my first “ooh quite expensive but so good” purchases in SL- the pupils are quite small but the detail fantastic they are only sold in complete colour packs but they always seem to give me a different look when I wear them.

Finally after tracking down this oh so gorgeous skin that is Mynerva‘s Think Pink hunt prize, I had to pick up some eyes to try too – you can adjust the brightness of the prim to give some dramatic effects , especially in low light conditions and it is definitely a brand delivering far more than just skin (even though I❤ the skin very much!)

The Eyes:

L. Fauna: Charm Eyes – Grey I

Mynerva: SoulHeart eyes- Charcoal

Detour : Crystal Eyes – Grey (dark sclera)

Pulse: Pulse Eyes – Candy #3

Shine: Lustrous Argent

Hermony: MP Eyes- Vamp

Lashes: Irresistible Lashes by Crissy Design (my other favourite of favourites pair) and just 50L

Skin: Mynerva– Sophie (Think Pink Hunt)

Hair:– Lola (Gloomy Grey)

Moody Blue? Tranquil Eyes

I was so thrilled that Annie Ibanez of Ibanez Eyes, creator of exceptional fantasy, creature and regular eyes recently flagged me down with a preview of her new line. TRANQUIL EYES won’t sedate you, rather excite you with their exquisite detail, brilliant clarity and beautiful expressiveness…

You will want to see more of this stunning range, but for now, here’s ALLURE….fabulous light blue eyes seem to be my current passion, but with a wide selection of prims, you can really get creative!

My recent find of the striking Atomic Bambi Skin on the For the Love of Science Hunt (ok Xanthe helped cos she is a hunting whizz) the ooh wow Dernier Cri hair from Project Themeory today and the omg! must have Mandala earrings from 50LF all combined to make me one rather happily blue girl.

EyeTease at The Dressing Room

Start a blog yay! then circumstances keep y0u mostly offline for several days boo! but have some great finds just limited to this week to share.

I have been a fan of *YS &YS* (YourSkin & YourShape*) eyes for a while now and was thrilled to see that a 5 pair pack of IntenseEyes currently available at The Dressing Room– this ice blue shade is so appealing and really wows against the Adriana skin from new store EyeTease (how appropriate!) that I managed to win on a lucky board.

The Innocent lashes from [Glow] are beautiful yet subtle for everyday wear and even a less than confident jewellery wearer like me couldn’t fail to be impressed by these bold and beautiful earrings from Magic Nook, both at T.D.R this week. Always great designer bargains to be found, priced no higher than 70L

Gosh after an initial flirtation with being more tanned than I ever could in RL (that’d be very slightly brown then ;-P), Elfie is mostly pale these days but this Latina look coupled with sparkly blue eyes  made me feel quite glam and want to dance and pose! Well bedtime for me but let’s see what eye find tomorrow!

  • Eyes : Intense eyes 5 pack *YS&YS* at The Dressing Room
  • Lashes: Innocent by [glow] at T.D.R
  • Earrings: Shimmy Shimmy by Magic Nook at T.D.R
  • Skin: Adriana Tan Dream by EyeTease
