Down the rabbit hole

Wow, I started this style blog early this morning (it’s too cold to go outside) and down the rabbit hole I went. Not in SL; but on YouTube. I have legit been watching beauty blogger reviews for Fenty Beauty foundation for … about 6 hours. WTF. It’s completely mesmerizing. IRL I have fair, freckled skin, dark hair and light grey… Read more →

Powder Pack

Powder Pack hits the spot

Powder Pack for LeLutka really hit the spot this month for me. You may recall I was still on the fence with this subscription box and whether I would continue with it after this third LeLutka pack. Once I saw the list of participating creators, I was in. For the most part, I was not disappointed. Smart Spend Not surprisingly,… Read more →

Here, have some hair and a bunch of words

I feel like I have more new, great hairs than ever before. I’m still catching up from Fameshed and We <3 RP in fact.  But, I am pretty good about reusing hairs, so unless the designer doesn’t put a picture in with the pack, I am sure to use them again. Anywayyyy, here are some more new hairs I love.… Read more →

Faces of Belleza

I am such a big fan of Shyla’s work at Belleza. There is incredible depth to her faces – particularly around the eyes with flecks of light that are so realistic. Have you seen Amelia yet? She’s brand new and stunning. I am showing the pale tone – makeup 9, with gorgeous grey and eggshell eyes. I also added freckles… Read more →

Hi, I suck at hunts

Hi, I’m Gillian and I suck at hunts. I have spent many hours searching the Wayward Hunt sites and failed a lot. I did finally find the skin I had been coveting from The Skinnery but admittedly, I had help from a lovely fellow hunter who helped me. We had both spent ridiculous amounts of time over 2 days trying… Read more →

Great Expectations

My cute hair which I forgot to pose with my hair roundup yesterday is from Olive. The paintbrushes have an on/off hud, although mine was not working for me. I wouldn’t want to hide them anyway because they are very sweet. This morning I went back and grabbed redelivery of my LeLutka mesh heads, so I could start fresh with… Read more →

All Business

Back when I started SL in 2006, there was a big movement to bring RL corporations into the “game.” I guess it was mildly successful for a short time, but in the end, it wasn’t really a business platform. During that time though, there was all sorts of “business wear” (a lot of it was terrible – made by these… Read more →

Skin Fair

I remember Skin Fair from way back when. Probably different organizers now, I really don’t know. Anywayyyyy, in classic Gillian style, I rushed in and out. I picked up 1000 demos (I only know because my inventory went up by a huge amount) and purchased a few of my “sure things” from Glam Affair, The Skinnery and Belleza. By now,… Read more →

Covet

I coveted this hat from the moment I saw it. The perfect cloche ladies hat in a delicate cream. I am a diehard Downton Abbey fan, so this was not an option not to have. I miss Sybil :/ I did not style it in period 1920s obviously. And normally you would see a tighter hair underneath, but I wanted… Read more →
