Today is the last day of the Mystic Realms Faire so you have just enough time (I hope) to swoop over and grab this amazing and beautifully-crafted crown by Chariot which was the inspiration behind today’s outfit. There are more fab goodies to be found in sian’s stall and the fair in general is stunning, so, if you haven’t already done so and you have some free time today, I really recommend you taking this final opportunity to visit.

I’ve been playing around with PicMonkey‘s newest comic book features and I like the dramatic way this turned out – particularly the dot shading on the skin (which is a beautiful L$70 bargain by Swallow currently found at The Dressing Room Fusion.) I really enjoy working on photos like this when I get the chance but I still appreciate how beautiful the items are on their own –  scroll down past the credits if you would like to see the unedited shot.

Hope you’re all having a great weekend!

277_001I’ve loved the stories of Sherlock Holmes ever since I was a little girl so when I saw this jewelry set by MiWardrobe featured on a fab blog I follow I squee’d with delight and rushed straight over to buy it!

The detail is amazing: LOVE! ❤

By the way, how cool is the sim? The pics were taken outside a furniture store that’s part of New Babbage – well worth a look around.

258_001aA fabulous post by Sileny Noel of Free*Style caught my eye today: it talks of the free skins available on the Marketplace by cStar. I’d never heard of them so, after grabbing the freebies, I headed over to take a look at the store – it’s amazing! Not only are the skins fabulous quality but they are Limited Edition – the one I bought (for just L$100!) disappeared off the shelf as soon as I’d paid for it. The skins are no copy/transferable so you can trade with your friends or sell one back if you get tired of it. You can also reserve skins to be informed when one comes back in stock. A truly unique experience!

I’ve also been lucky enough to receive the latest blogger pack from Indyra Originals and, oh boy, the ‘Memoire‘ pencil skirts are stunning! They are for sale in packs of 5 with 6 colour selections to choose from. Yum!

Hair: ‘Strangelove (Chocolate)‘ – EMO-tionsL$95 (past My Attic item)
