Just in Time for Tyne – Skin Fair 2014 Last Chance

Last day of Skin Fair 2014 is March 30, and you still have time to pick up Amacci’s new Tyne skin.  I had so much fun playing with this skin, because in addition to all the pretty eye and cheek colors varieties built into the skin itself, lips come bare until you start mixing and matching the complimentary lip tattoos in the pack.  I couldn’t resist, which you’ll see below. Each skin comes with the bare skin plus one makeup option.   But if I can be completely honest…the best option is fatpack.  Take a look for yourself.  Appliers to match your Lolas, Phatt Azz, and Slinks can also be purchased separately. While Tyne is currently featured at Skin Fair in Cream, once it rolls out to the stores, even more skin tones will be available.

Winter Fair – Styling 1

Throughout my life, during times when I was especially down, overwhelmed, or things seemed to be aligning against me, from out of nowhere suddenly a cardinal would appear.  It didn’t matter the season, or my whereabouts; when I needed a reminder that I wasn’t alone, I’d look up and that brilliant red bird would suddenly flit across my path.  I have come to associate cardinals as the harbinger of better things to come, brighter days on the horizon, and because of this, they always lift my spirit.  And without fail, shortly after seeing that bright flash of red, things always do have a way of turning around to the good.  So when you need something to hold on to…something to believe in, ask for a sign.  They have a way of appearing when you need them the most.

When it’s time to change…then it’s time to change

Look what I found shopping in my own inventory.  I think I like. Oh the surprises you find when you try to make sense of the chaos.  “When it’s time to change, you’ve got to rearrange, from who you are into what you’re gonna be.” lyrics from When It’s Time to Change by: The Brady Bunch

Catch a sunbeam

I have noticed that no matter how small the sliver, a cat can always find a sunbeam to bask in.  And who can blame them really, because to catch a sunbeam, even if to just run your fingers through it, is to be pet by warmth.  One of my fondest memories, and one I still close my eyes to return to when I need a break from life, is a visit to Maui, lying on the beach, hearing the gulls and the waves.  But where the true contentment comes from in this memory, is remembering the warmth.  I can see the light, even from behind my closed eyelids, and the sun-warmed ocean breeze makes it feel as though I’m being caressed by sunshine.  It is a sensuous and languid experience, and profoundly relaxing.  My kitties are right, it really does feel good to be pet by a sunbeam.

The Runway Perfect Hunt Styling 1

I like to challenge myself sometimes to see how many of my designers I can feature in a single post.  I consider it a personal styling challenge in and of itself.  This post came together so effortlessly with 6 designers’ offerings as part of The Runway Perfect hunt, plus one lovely ethnic hair from EMO-tions. I’ve been getting compliments on this outfit all day as I’ve been out and about continuing my hunting.  The textures are luscious and the Silken Moon skin is just luminous.

Kissing frogs

The old adage; “Sometimes you have to kiss many frogs before you find your prince,” isn’t only an expression related to persistence in finding a mate.   I see it as a phrase that talks about how we should live life.  I think it is good to dabble in life, to continue to explore, and to do so persistently.  And if you should ever feel yourself stuck in a rut, just going through the motions, one of the best ways to break out is to stretch outside your comfort zone to “kiss a new frog”…try something new.  Sometimes our comfort zone feels like the only safe place, and it is fine to rest there for a time, but if we don’t continue to grow, to experience, to learn, we begin to die.   A part of us is always reaching, always moving, even without our consent or knowledge sometimes.  So keep kissing frogs…experiencing newness, keeping life fresh.

I’m living the fairytale with some wonderful offerings from the first round of The Fairy Closet, a monthly event running from the 10th-30th of each month with a collection of fantasy themed items, including hair, clothes, poses, makeups, poses, and props from different designers.  In fact…this entire post was created using only Fairy Closet finds, with the exception of the pose.  Here is your taxi to Fairy Closet.  Links below are direct to the designers’ stores, which are NOT just fantasy themed, so you can see their entire collection.
