Valentines is not a day I entirely understand nor enjoy. It use to be different, but it like many other holidays now, has become overly commercialized and almost stressful.
That being said, it doesn’t mean I can’t try to be cute, without being over the top.
Something you will probably notice in a lot of my posts is my love of Plastik. That whole store is basically me. Very rarely do I encounter something that I don’t like, as there are so many options offered. Over the years, and my hair texture changes, I have always made sure to keep a few set aside that match the range offered at Plastik, so I have seamless fits from hair to whatever I got going on fashion wise.
I was so glad to see there was still an ongoing presence inworld.
I braved the crowds and went to my first ever Shop & Hop run by Linden Labs. I had never heard about these, my sister thinks there was like one or two before I left, but I honestly can’t recall any mention of it. It is an interesting concept, and I really don’t understand why they didn’t do something like this sooner, closer to the beginning of SL’s birth.
I picked up these horns, because they were HUGE! I like that we can have ridiculous things that don’t make any sense in here. It also helped that they were 1/2 off the original price.
I’m still rocking my old Catwa head(though now updated). I have over 40 head demos, and still haven’t found one that really feels like me, and has all the features I want. This one is starting to drive me nuts though, it was 2nd gen, so there is no stop animation button for my eyes, which means they are on a scripted timer. I always have this semi vacant look with this head, but I still like look of the cheekbones. In the right angle, with the right makeup, she looks like Angelina Jolie, who I have always enjoyed looking at.
I have been having a blast with all the makeup layers and appliers. I found these cool eyebrows, which aren’t so perfectly groomed.
I tried my best not to be covered in hearts, but had to get this little clutch, which can colour change.
Stumbled across these heels on SLM, while looking for other things. They have a really nice range of colours in the hud that comes along with them. I’m not big on bows, but these ones aren’t huge, so don’t bother me.
