I Won A Free Subscription Box!

Back in December I heard there was to be a new subscription box just for Catwa Mesh Heads, with an expected released date for January 2017. I eagerly awaited the arrival of this new subscription box, for several reasons. Firstly, I love make up! I love trying out new make up looks on my mesh head. Secondly, as this new subscription box was going to be just for Catwa Heads, I knew that I would be able to use everything in it, so that was a win win for me! Thirdly, and this was linked very much to my previous point, is that most, if not all, of the other fashion based subscription boxes, are very much biased to the main mesh body types of Slink or Maitreya. I have only the one mesh body, TMP (The Mesh Project) body, and I am very loyal to it. I do not want to buy every other sort of body just so I can buy this or that outfit. So, having said that, to find a subscription box that I could finally use all of the items was, to me, priceless!

And what is this fabulous new subscription box? I hear you ask. It is called Powder Pack, and is available here. It comes out on the 17th of each month, so there have been two thus far. They were both packed with amazing items from a group of twelve designers. The items have been very varied, and have included things like great make ups, facial marks, skins, lashes, and mesh eye appliers. Each month, Powder Pack group members are invited to post pictures on to the group Flickr page, wearing some of the contents from the boxes. Each month there has been a draw for a Powder Pack Princess, who wins three months free subscription to the box. I won a free month’s subscription just for being in the group, so I was extremely thrilled!

Starting next month they will also be doing a Subscription Box for LeLutka Heads. I am sure that will be a great success too.

Thank you so much to the Powder Pack Team for their very generous gift, and for all the hard work they put in to bringing us all such a wonderful Subscription Box. I am eagerly awaiting this month’s delivery!

PS: I realised after uploading this post that two of my images were not ones depicting joy and happiness at winning, which, after all, was the main title of the post! They were, more specifically, showing items that were included in the February Powder Pack. So, as the post was about the Powder Pack, I have left them in. Tuppi x

Goodbye Alice, Hello Kimberly!

Well, I have finally gone and done it! After months of deliberating, demo testing, shape modifying, comparing the final option with my old version, saving up the relevant Lindens, spending them, saving up again… you know the way it is in SL, there is always something that just HAS to be purchased right now. Anyway, I am now happy to introduce the new me, sporting the Catwa Kimberly Bento Head. I have never been one to have a ton of different faces, even on my old classic avatar. I only bought the one Mesh Head, Catwa Alice, and did the same laborious procedure before I purchased her. I thought she was gorgeous, and as near my old ‘me’ as I felt was acceptable. So what did I do with my Bento demo heads? I made them look as near to my Alice as I could, of course! Granted, they are not exactly twins, but, I have achieved a look that I find pleasing and acceptable to me, and that is, after all, the whole point of our avatars here. We tweak them here and there to reach an overall level we find not only acceptable, but hopefully pleasing too.

I am a total Catwa devotee with regards to female Mesh Heads. I have tried several other makes, and there was always some part of the head that just didn’t look right. None of the other heads could match the level of detail put into the animations like Catwa heads. The smiles work, the facial expressions work. I also love the amount of animations that Catwa includes with her heads.

Here are a selection of six of the twenty-four animations that are included with the Catwa Kimberly Bento Head. My personal favourites are the cute winks.

Love And Hearts

February seems to be the month when Love and Hearts explode all over the fashion scene here in SL. I found some more goodies to share with you all. First up is this cute little dress by [Aleutia]. It comes with a 30 textures HUD, and I chose the hot pink version today. I teamed it with some fabulous heels from ArisAris.

Next up is from Hilly Haalan, and is part of a two dress Valentine’s Day Gift Pack. No HUD on this one, but it does include the cute matching shoes! Both outfits are shown with gacha hairs, check Tuppi’s Treasures for other variations.

Today’s Faves – Red And Black

I took a little boo around the Truth or Dare Event and found this amazing little red and black dress for a bargain price of only 50$L! I also found a great gacha item, the De’Leashous Choker by !IT! I was lucky to get a red coloured one at first play, and that was a perfect match for the dress.

020817 Gates_022.png

I added some arm straps by katatOnik and gorgeous tassel boots from Hilly Haalan.The hair is an old favourite of mine, by Action Inkubator. Their hairs come with fantastic colour HUDs, and I chose a red and black ombre.

Birthday Tea!

I recently celebrated my RL birthday and what better way to celebrate than with tea and cakes? Any excuse to set the table for a little self indulgence. I found the perfect treats too, with this gorgeous Tiffany’s Party Table by Boudoir. It was one of the items in a gacha they had.

I put on this gorgeous little party dress, by Hilly Haalan, and chose a texture to match the party table treats! The shoes were a cute little pair of mules from a lingerie outfit by ArisAris.

Addicted to Doe!

I have to confess I am utterly addicted to Doe Hairs! My first one was bought around Christmas, it is called Twinkle, and I featured it on my last Today’s Faves post. I am now pleased to say that I have several of their styles, and love them all. They have an amazing way of making one hairstyle look totally different with the use of their many amazing colour HUDs. You could buy a brown pack, and go for a sophisticated look, or, change it up, and use a colourful pack to make a fun two tone look.

They seem to sell them mostly via a gacha system, so you can take pot luck, or, go check out Tuppi’s Treasures on the Marketplace, and buy your favourite colour choice. The Marketplace is also likely to be the only place you can buy some of the styles, if the event they were featured at has now finished.

Doe Set One

I love this Twinkle (twotone) Pastel version, complete with the adorable bun lights. The lights can be worn or not, as seen in my Twinkle Twinkle post. I had not realised that there was a HUD for the lights (accessories) until I took the photos for this post! Each side of the lights can be changed to one of several different options, with glow on/off. You can have static lights or blinking lights. Just adorable!

Sombr V2 is shown in the Essentials Rare option. V2 has the hair clips and coloured strands in the style, which can be changed in the accessories colour HUD. I wore a pinky version in this Time For A Workout? post.

012317 Doe Set OneT.jpg

 Jink (twotone) Gingers, and Lovestruck (solid) Candy Rare, are styles with bunches, one with bangs, one with a side parting. Jink is a two tone, so each side can be coloured separately. Lovestruck Candy is the solid pack, so all the hair changes as one.

I Feel A Song Coming On

Have you even been wandering around and suddenly a song pops into your head? Or you look at some of your pictures and you relate a song title to it? Maybe you go exploring the vastness of all that is SL, and decide that you are going to take pictures that sum up a song title, or, invoke the memory of one? Your vision, your interpretation, your memory.

If you haven’t, why not give it a try? Here are a few of mine. Oh, and just for fun, why not see how many of them you know? I will number each picture, and you can find the details for each one at the bottom of the post.

Twinkle Twinkle

Today’s Faves are actually three faves, or more, if I include the make up too!

010817 Twinkle_009T.png

I have been wearing this Sweater Dress style for a while now, as I wore a similar style as my Christmas outfit in several pictures, featured in my Christmas post here. This version is by ArisAris,  I love the detail they put into all of their textures. It comes with 8 textures for the sweater and 8 textures for the shirt. The shirt has Hide/Show feature. The amazing boots are by Hilly Haalan, and I confess to buying most of her designs if they are for TMP. The boots have several areas to customise with the textures HUD.

Happy New Year 2017!

I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a very Happy New Year in 2017! I wish you all health, wealth, and happiness for the coming year.

010117 New Year_015T.png

Did anyone go out and celebrate? I know there were lots of venues offering a variety of New Year’s Eve parties. Whether you celebrated in a grand way or a more subdued way, I hope you all had fun, and if you were imbibing alcoholic beverages, I hope you walked home and didn’t risk teleporting in an inebriated state!

010117 Happy New Year 2017_013T.png

I, myself, chose to celebrate the coming of the New Year, at one of my favourite clubs, The Willows Club. You may have read other posts of mine featuring this wonderful club, here, and here. The place was packed out, and for the first time I can remember, in all the years I have been going there, the sim was full and some people were unable to TP in.
