ECLAT!

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!

My favorite pieces are definately the flower shorts and shamrock jackets! There’s also one pair of the flower shorts (in blue) for free and they’re totally worth it. tp HERE and check out for yourself! ❤ Uma

Orange Crush

Lately Ive been more inspired on playing with ps than anything else. I have not done the typical ‘3 way’ picture and I’ve actually taken these in world. Mostly because I was visiting Turnip’s houses and felt like that specific spot was perfect for what I wanted. So you can’t see ALL the details of this outfit, but trust your oomaz, it’s pretty damn cutes if I may say so. On a small (big) note, Esme started making poses !!! YAY!…My babays going far with her ocdness and it’s being translated into awesome poses. These are two of them though first picture doesn’t do justice to it. *pouts*! Anyways…got your orange crush already? ❤ Uma

Hello Spring!

…and hello clothes, shoes and suitcase. Lol. I’m getting ready to go soon but I’m still (as addicted as I am) around and gah, blogging!..bambi has recently released the cutest wrap dresses, they make me smile and think of the season to come, I ❤ SPRING. I can’t believe I haven’t seen it on feed yet, or maybe I haven’t been paying attention, cause it’s seriously worth grabbing. ❤ This one is probably my favorite color of all of them, just because I’m in the mood for color, and especially this salmon-orangey one. I  havent added much, but I thought a flower brooch was definitely needed, this one being part of one of my oldest items, creamshop poncho which I still love and wear often, and since I haven’t sported my huuuuuuuuge necklace lately, I thought I would today aswell. Ok, now back to rl clothing and closet sorting. ❤ ❤ uma

Saturday Night…plurking!

I swear, when Abra told me to join plurk, I had no idea what I was getting into. I mean, I’ve heard about it, never tried to know much, because, really,  I’m usually a lazy bastid when it comes to ‘myspaces’  and ‘facebooks’ and..what not. However, I got curious and joined…but here’s the tricky thing, I have no idea how that plurkin’ thing works. LOL! I’m still laughing at my lameness and lack of, mmm, intelligence? to know how it works *insert motivation here* but while I still wonder and wander like a lost kitty around there, I’ll keep trying!..If some of my favorite people are plurking their ‘bums’ off, then its sure to be something worth it! ❤ Now, what brings me here apart from  publicly announcing that I need plurk instructions so I can sleep tonight?..mmm OH YES!..So tonight I’m pretending it’s not so freakin’ cold outside and dressed as if it was summer already. The inspiration was definitely this exile hair. For some reason it brought out the little rockabilly girl in me. However the piece that brought it all together (and my favorite accessory of the moment) was this awesome and ‘huge’ necklace from the ever so talented Marie Lauridsen. From what I’ve been told they’re out already so if you haven’t checked Milk Motion already please do (and don’t forget to check the skins aswell, the one I’m wearing is called ‘alice’ love it!). Milk Motion is located at Cupcake (which will be oficially opened on monday) and you can also find Kookie, Triangle Caudron’s, snooky poses, yours truly ‘toastface’, amongst other awesomeness! ❤ Uma
