Guys, I did a thing! I did, I did! Granted, it’s no Strawberry Singh quality video but hey, it was fun to do and I’ll probably do some more! To be honest, it’s thirty minutes of me wittering on about what is in this months DECOCRATE, but you get all my genuine reactions as I excitedly unwrap the goodies. You also get bonus dog barking towards the end..and it’s half an hour of your life that you’ll never get back but hey, it makes an old girl like me very happy!
I’m so sad that we’ve lost Prince. Really gutted.
This picture was my way of sort of sharing my grief.
RIP you glorious bastard you; the music you created will stay with us forever.
EYE MAKE-UP: DEESSES ‘Fierce’ Eyeshadow set (Catwa)
Getting pretty Kitty-desperate here, just what is a girl to do? I need an EPIC outfit for tonight! Time to get summoning up some serious inspiration. Hang on, I need to look good to do that as well! GAH! OK, I’m going to throw on an old favourite skin from NAR MATTARU and some cracking eyeliner from MONS. I’ll add the amazing ‘Martia’ dress by FISHY STRAWBERRY in what else but a demonic red, and I’ll add those Doutzen boots from ILLI, both from THE MESH BODY ADDICTS fair. To finish an old fave hairstyle of mine, ‘Octavia’ by BURLEY and it’s time to summon those spirits…

I’m the kind of girl who really does appreciate a quality group gift. Of course, you have to be in a quality group to begin with, and there are many of them in SECOND LIFE.
One example is MAGIKA hair, and this seasonal gift is nothing short of absolute Halloween perfection. It’s called ‘Sorcery’ and includes a mesh hat + hair just for being in the group, and the style couldn’t be anymore enticing if it tried. It has an almost coquettish quality to it, and is the perfect shade of Halloween green, although if you purchase the latest release, ‘Darkness Falls’ you’ll find that the colour packs are compatible with the gift.
I teamed it with a lovely shirt, jumper and jacket combo from APHORISM. This is part of the ‘Autumn Jackets’ collection that is available from THE SEASONS STORY (beginning 10th October) and the textures on this are nothing short of perfect. Zoom in and you’ll see chunky knit and stitching and a lovely, clunky belt that ties the combination together perfectly. The Jacket comes in 6 colours, Black, Charcoal, Grey, Pale Grey, Blue and Brown, and also included is a texture change pad with 6 colour options for the sweater. Even better than that, Maitreya Autohide is enabled too. HUZZAH!
My skirt is a jazzy wee number from R3VOLT called the ‘Heather’ skirt. I chose it because the HUD featured some grimy textures that were perfect for this look. They’re a label that I’m quite fond of actually and produce a great range of urban-styled pieces to mix and match together. I’m also rather keen on these ‘Strap Leggings’ from ABRASIVE, which is another of one of those stores that once you find it you need to LM it for future reference.
I still feel the need to wear these exceptional NCORE ‘Alexandra’ boots at every opportunity but they’re so darn wearable and the HUD sock options alone make them a fantastic purchase for and edgy fashion look.
To finish I added my favourite eyeliner and a glorious lip stain from ADORED, a sweet Kitty septum ring from CX @ UBER and one of my favourite bracelets, ‘Eternal Life’ by YUMMY. Gearing up for Halloween in style aren’t we? WEEEEE!!!
