Valentines day is fast approaching, for many that means a frenzy of crazyness trying to find the perfect gift for a loved one, others choose to ignore it altogether. Me I like to just embrace the myths surrounding it, well not exactly sure if they are myths or not, but as I wasn’t alive then and people say it isn’t so, then I just want to believe in it just because.
What I like to think of is that apparently St. Valentine was a priest who performed weddings on people that wanted to go against the laws of the time, and get married. How weddings were illegal I do not know but anyway myth or fact, the idea that people were secretly getting married and that he put himself in danger for love makes me think it’s a sweet day to celebrate.
Bebae has released Limited Edition Valentine Skins to celebrate, and these will be taken away afterwards so do not miss out.
When I saw the rich red lips of one of the two make ups, I thought instantly of Marilyn Monroe, now this woman was so unlucky in love, or maybe she was lucky many times over, who knows. I was at Icing the other day and couldn’t resist this marvelous Marilyn Inspired dress, not only does it look the part, but it has a gesture built into the skirt that you activate and then can type woosh and up the skirt goes, its fantastic. Now as romantic and beautiful as it is, the wooosh features will have your partner chuckling, and that’s the kind of night to remember I adore the most, I make Mel laugh all the time, he calls me his Payday.
There are two different animations with the skirt, and the hand in front of mouth one is too cute, and you even get a prim grate to put on the ground to stand over , for a more realistic effect, Miko has thought of everything.
Now in the ad Miko isnt wearing Marilyn hair :O, but on a visit to Curl Up and Dye a few hours later with Whimsy, we came across the perfect Marilyn Style. Curl Up and Dye does amazing themed hair, from so many different TV shows, Movies and general themes, she even has the flying Nun which is too funny.
This is a fantastic look as I said to really show off the beautiful skin from Bebae, I am wearing the Cream tone in this pic, because it really suits the high glam pin up era so well, and again YUM on those lips. The shoes which are a fabulous summer sandals called Sulaco and they are from Enkythings, these are such a great sandal for the vintage retro looks, and the white goes well with this dress because of the subtle shades of grey highlighting the white.
A complete about face in looks, I wasexplaining to Fia a little incident that occured the day before, and took him over to Vellas, we both fell for the GamePlayer Belt, which is funny because when I got it he said he wanted it and I almost gave it up so he could have it, but he bought it anyway, lol Men , anyway that shows that it is transfer.
The texture work on the prims if this belt is fantastic, and I was stoked to realise after purchase lol that there is redbull strapped to the back, those that know me know that I drink way too much of that stuff. What I fell for the most though was of course the mouse and usb plug, it looks just like mine, and the disc and case and video card – which I had to ask Fia what that was – is really detailed.
Now one thing I have to point out is that it has lots of little prims, meaning resizing COULD be a pain, but because of the Scripts R Us free Resizer script it was effortless.
To compliment the buckles and metal attachments on the belt I am wearing the Bliensen+MaiTai Vintage Leather Gloves, these are so cute, you wear the glove base, and then the cuffs that are studded and buckled and have not only a resizer script in them, but also texture change and metal change according to your needs to match the gloves worn.
Yesterday I was blessed with others to get a sneak peak of the soon to be opened Festivale Sim, which is the soon to be home sim for Long Awkward Pose and Pixel Dust, WOW is pretty much all that needs saying, as soon as you hear it is open get on over there.
Now I have to admit that I couldn’t help shopping while there, I think I bought something from every store there bar two that I had everything from already lol. The Hartelied Flat’s from Lazy Places are just adorable, you can get these in different versions in the black, or there are fantastic fruity ones too, I got the lemon as well, couldn’t resist…also if you are a big LP fan then you need to make sure and visit because they have a only available at Festivale pair of Red boots there to buy.
Seriously it is a brilliant idea to do that, because not only does it bring people to every one of your satelites but you are promoting the sim you rent at too, if every single store that rents other locations did that, my goodness the shopping across the grid would be fabulous, it would also open up the potential for sims that have stores that are similar to other sims.
Also while there I came across Skanks R Us, I have not been to Skanks for soooooooooooooooooooooo long, its terrible I haven’t and I do always mean to, but tonight made it possible for a visit. Now I have to admit to buying these Stitched Jeans for a very strange reason that ended up not true.
Ok don’t laugh at me, but look at my left leg under the highest rip, I SWEAR that the following rips and stains look just like a Garden Gnome, I swear I was in the little store and immediately they caught my eye and I was convinced that that is what I was seeing, but regardless of the me seeing a crazy blindfolded and tied up gnome that isnt really there, they are great jeans, the stitching is large and messy and they have four different options of wear.
I am wearing them with the Kellie Tank top from CKS Designs which has a lovely ruffle look with sheer topping, but as delicate and pretty as it looks it totally suits a darker and dirtier feel. The hair which I have been meaning to show for yonks is the Bunny style from House of Heart, this style has wonderful full rich curls and is topped with the argyle beanie which is texture change on click, so you should be able to match it to other favourite argyle prints you have YAY.
The Bebae Valentine skin with the pink lips would be a perfect all rounder skin, the beautiful body work is all there, and the soft gloss of the pink lips is fabulous, not only that, but with the Limited Time Only factoring in, no one born after that day will ever have it lol. So make sure you check them out while they are in the Bebae Main store and DEMO DEMO DEMO.
