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.

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!

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).
