On Directing!

hej hej! I lied. I got a few extra hours to waste, really way more than I should but I couldn’t help it. >.< lalala, So what did I do?..I changed, put some clothes on. I feel like sharing some thoughts with you while I’m at it…Sometimes, just sometimes, I have this weird feeling, I miss people in my life.  Don’t you? Sometimes people that don’t matter at all, or people  that are not part of your life anymore, nor are you part of their lives either, at all, anymore. It’s funny. We grow, they grow, things change, we change, but sometimes, just sometimes, we still miss them. Or those moments, maybe. Moments that can never ever be replaced, never be the same, prolly wouldn’t even feel the same if those people were part of it again.  Moments forever cherished, moments forever lost. Forever meaningless. I guess I’m just mellow…melancholic even. Don’t you just feel the same, sometimes?…I know I do. ❤ Uma

Hot chocolate days!

There’s nothing like staying home in a rainy cold winter’s day…or even better, having a hot chocolate and some sweets to brighten up a day like this. That’s pretty much the feel I wanted to portray with these pictures. I found the cutest candy shop in a sim a friend’s building and that (plus the fact I don’t have to go out in rl) just made my day. Warm turtleneck dress from Elate, amazing knit cardigan from Kiitos, the cozy-est tights (latest release) from Twosome and the kick ass buckle boots from ANEXX felt like the perfect look to go grab some doughnuts and run home to prepare me some hot choco! Fun, warm and casual with a bit of sweet cuteness. Good days…

I’m loving the feeling of warmth in pieces like ear muffs and scarfs and big comfy coats and boots lately. Yeah, not as much as in rl, since I can still feel the cold but one of my favorite things is dressing accordingly to the seasons in sl. In winter I love seeing pixel snow and layering like a mad girl and in the summer..wear as less as I can..even though there’s exceptions here and here. So Antonia Marat’s contribution to fifty lindens friday just made my day. Couldn’t come in a better moment and it was all I needed to put this together and feel like a lil’ bear. Hope you have a great weekend!

Quote of the day : ”There is so much hate among people, so much contempt inside people who’d like you to think they’re moral, that they have to hire ”prizefighters” to do their hating for them. And we do. We get into a ring and act out other people’s hates.”

Ha-ih!

I had not planned for this post to be a review. Nor do I think it is, though I feel like expressing my opinion, or, my random thoughts about it. So pardon my rambling…I’ve been pointed to, some rather funny, some thougtful and other rather partial ‘reviews’ of LeLutka’s new skins so I thought I needed to have a saying on it/them. I’ve read a lot about how much people were expecting and eager for Lelutka’s skins to be released and how people thought they ‘looked ugly in them’.  The fact a skin does not look good on you, doesn’t mean the skin itself is ugly looking. Maybe and without the intention of sounding too rude, your shape doesn’t fit it, it is not the best for it, or maybe your shape is just plain ugly. Being beautiful or ugly, is always relative (each and everyone have their own opinion, input and perspective about it) you cannot judge a skin because it doesn’t fit your avi. That is not equal to saying a skin is UGLY.

Second thing I noticed was people complaining about the eyebrows. More than anything else, which apparently ‘perplexed’ a lot of  ‘you’ ! It’s funny because in the past a lot have complained about how ‘overly plucked’ the eyebrows seemed and now, they’re just NOT enough.  Rather than thinking they’re just too ‘bushy’, you could think, now you have two options (both in old and new skins), to have more plucked and more ‘natural’ looking eyebrows. I personally think a little tweak on your eyebrows SHAPE, makes a whole and big difference, and you can actually DO THAT.

Not that skins should follow a trend, but one has clearly not noticed Alexander Wang‘s latest collection (as far as face/hair goes, eyebrows are rather ‘natural’/thick looking and hair, omg, hair!..PLEASE someone make an alexander wang braid look a like hair). I love truth’s (romy) but can we has a more careless (longer/thinner) one and since I’m whining (and on) about it, why not call it oomsie?..LOL!..joke..I guess. 😦

Another thing I noticed people pointing out, was the nose. Now this is a personal and rather partial opinion. I love the nose shading and how it’s enhanced. Here I can understand people do not fully agree, and may think otherwise, but I dig it. It gives us a whole different look. For most might not work, but for me, it just stands out from the ‘old’ lelutka skins and gives the face both, different character and features. It’s exactly those two things that give ECLAT‘s, a stronger and different character, and thats why I personally love it.

Minnu’s personal ‘touch’ or magic touch for some, is still there (you can recognize her ‘signature’) and you may not love eclat as much as you loved london or moscow or any of her  ‘older’ skins, but honestly, in the end, is how much you feel ‘yourself’, or as ‘beautiful’ as you want to  feel and that will always be debatable. Always questionable.

As for my own opinion, I really like them. Especially the fair, light and sun kissed tones (freckles and hairbase!! yay!). The make up is rather ‘classic’, from the back eyeshadow, to the darker lips, the ‘ice’ queen look with more muted colors both in eye and lips and the natural kind. There’s no crazy/excessive make up but that only adds to more possibilities and day to day basis look or a more polished one when you feel like it. MUAHS ❤ Uma

p.s. I AM no longer running or living through or by sl times but rl ones. Therefore, I am not here to blog about what’s ‘new’ or what’s just ‘released’ and whenever I blog, I blog because I love it, no matter how many times it was blogged before, or if it was blogged ‘years’ ago. Sometimes and most of times (here), it’s just about clothes, about styling, about re-inventing ourselves and our clothes (as I repeated so many times) and though it is surely about sl, it is never about who got it first or who wore it first. ❤ Uma

Your heart’s a mess..I’m desperate to connect!

I actually meant to call this post sweet kinky rock, because I had three looks in mind ready (and willing) to blog, but as usual and especially since last week, sl keeps challenging my patience and I seriously went nuts and gave up. For daysss, I been planning to log in and focus a bit on blogging but haven’t had the time to do it (once again bear with me 😉 ) so today I finally decided to.

Ok, let’s log in and put some random outfit together. So far, so good. So I’m welcomed to sl …and go figure, drowned in a pool of lag and lag spikes and kept freezing forever!!! Dressing wasn’t the problem, but taking pictures was a whole different bizz. I just couldn’t and  everytime I tried to..bam!! ‘El lag spike’. So I just share with you this lil’ ol’ dirty rock look which I fancy a lot and hope you do too. GO emery (my inspiration) !!…and yeah, that’s pretty much it, a 5 year old laptop who refuses to collaborate (though I’m planning to get a new one soon..cross your fingers, pretty please?). MUAHS! ❤ Uma

Ever thine, ever mine, ever ours!

Empire state of Mind

Haihai yall! It’s been days without blogging, I have been living of, rl mostly, without logging (in world) at all. I think we all go through phases in sl, sometimes rl is so hectic we hardly can get online but we really want and miss it, others we just feel like its pointless, when rl is hectic but way more exciting than spending hours pixel-izing. I’m going through a phase that is a mix of both. It actually feels great, not that im not missing youuu peeps! <3! …Lately I’m afraid I don’t dedicate or have enough time to blog or update it as much as I could/would like to. Hope you still catch up with my lil’ blog and thank you so much for all the offlines and support throughout ..well the whole time since I started blogging and the last few days I’ve been m.i.a.

Lately I’ve been way more focused on my rl closet and rl fashion in general, and I’m reaaaaallllyyy into a couple of things I find to be a must have for me : leggings (sequins/wet/leather look), jeggings (leggings meat jeans, genious), oversized shirts, boyfriend blazers or power shoulder ones, leather jackets…and a LOTTTTT of shoes. From peep toes, to ankle boots, and over the knee ones. I’m also really into high waisted skirts (not that new) and especially made out of different materials and unique. So these two looks were somewhat slightly  inspired by my rl must haves..We’re rather limited in sl..and that makes me MEH! <–meh is the ”word”.

There was something that made me truuuuuullllyyy happy today when i finally found time to log in though,that was Maitreya’s new shoes..all wrapped in a cute box (I’m a shoe addict/fetishist and a true fan of Onyx work) Neyya’s toe caps being my favorite, and I cannot help but feature (almost) all of them here  and I’m pretty sure I’ll wear them for weeks in a row. I will feature them (in my pretty feet) soon!! ty so much Onyx! ❤ Uma

Listening to : Little girl by Robert Francis

watch, listen, read.

Hey hey! I’m back. I’m sad to say I’m one of those people with always two thoughts in mind, juggling fighting…eh. Sucks!..and I never think of what to write, until I do…so, what I’m thinking is..are you one of (like myself) who watched a bit of the vmas? Shame on you Kanye, being drunk (or whatever you were on) does not explain for what you did lmao, shame shame! I kind of liked him, as an artist, not as a pseudo-artsy-wanna be though! Anyways, needless to say, lady gaga sucks ass! SERIOUSLY, she does, performing live shes’s just…sad! I knew it already, it was just a confirmation. Thumbs up for the mj tribute though I think ‘we’ should just let the ‘king of pop’ rest. Poor soul! However I do need to point out Jay-z’s and alicia keys performance, they really kicked ass in my opinion! I’d really like your feedback on that.

Anyways, On to what I’m here for…pixel clothes! Sl fashion, and what not. I’ve been missing on a lot of new releases I actually meant to cover, but meh, I’m lazy like that. Emery has released a lot of new goodies I was very much excited about so I finally caved in. I am very sorry I couldn’t feature the 3 outfits in the first picture but my cam was acting up so I decided to only show two.

Another much expected and beloved release, is Kookie‘s ‘ono’ cowl. It comes with hair but you can also buy the hair alone. I’m proud of my babays, she’s done something that we haven’t seen before in sl and damn awesome! I own 2 or 3 of ‘these’ in rl (I take care of my winter closet) and we sure needed these in sl.  So cute so so so….<3 joo!

First and second outfit were basically, inspired by Emery’s new releases. The colorful leopard printed leggings are a favorite item, and so is the ‘studded’ grey tank top. If you follow rl trends you know how much it relates to rl runways and god, I’ve been wearing and buying so many studded pieces its nuts. From shoes, to tops, blazers…belts. Dayum, its all over!

Another thing I wanted to point out, is Miel‘s soon to be released (if not released already) hoodie and skirt. Well, it’s basically a whole set though sold separately. The hoodie w/hair is color change and scripted to our needs while the skirt and top comes in several different colors and easily resizable. Since the very first time I blogged about Miel, I’ve stated how thoughtful and well made each piece was, from the design itself to the scripted and sculpted prims, everything is just..perfect, and once again, no exception. I feel like red riding hood here, in a tomb raider way ehe with this . I just love it. Hope you do too ❤ Uma
