I don’t hate Valentine’s Day. It’s a great day to love yourself and feel beautiful, regardless of relationship status. Wear pink or red, or don’t. Better yet, do whatever makes you happy on whatever day you want! Enjoy your Valentine’s but more importantly, enjoy your day! xoxo Read more →

Jing from Fiore

I recently raved about the new mesh heads and appliers from Fiore, released at the end of the year. To my delight, the brand released another, completely different applier, Jing, available in 3 tones to work with all five Fiore head shapes.

Dressing for Fall …When it’s Still Hot Out?

It happens to be almost 75 degrees here in Boston today. It’s beautiful, blustery with remnants of a passing hurricane, and bursting with fall color. But it’s not like I can walk outside with my favorite cape or I would broil. So, how am I dressing seasonally appropriate when it’s so warm out? Like ^ that. Maybe I would add… Read more →

Once in a while…

…a change in my style is so refreshing. Yes, this isn’t my usual, everyday style, but Second Life makes dressing so much fun when you’re feeling like a change. I built my looks all around my favorite Glam Affair skin probably of all time. Sia – or Sia II to be exact. This was a FLF offering last week and… Read more →
