The Day I Ran Away With the Circus

I heard the circus was in town, and I had been practicing for a long time with my new hover board. I was sure they would be dazzled with my stunts! So I put on a cute outfit, did my hair and set off on the road of fame, or so I thought.

7 Deadly s[K]ins brings us Hester. An Omega face applier based on the [AK] Valerie mesh head. Worn here in apricot with the Catwa Catya head with Maitreya Lara body and Slink hands. This skin box contains 8 face appliers in the tones, cotton candy, sand, oak, apricot, caramel, pineapple, cashew and taupe.   It is on sale now at Mesh Body Addicts May 10-31  All the Major Body appliers are available in store at 7 Deadly s{K}ins for Maitreya, Belleza, Omega Appliers, Slink, TMP, Banned Lena etc….

Sn@tch created the new rockin' Pilar Hair. This is a long shag  sdtyle with some height in back and side swept choppy bangs. It comes in 5 color packs with at least a dozen colors in each, PLUS an all color pack too!


Something New made the fun pose prop with poses set called, Hoverboard. It contains 4 props containing different poses in a female or male version and can be found exclusively at Thrift Shop May 27 - June 18 

The pictures taken were at Something New Photo Land
 

 .:S&B:.  designed the lovely lacey Strapy Mini Dress in Summer Time pastels for the Fitmesh Designers Expose June 1-21 where they are a sponsor. This lovely short and sexy mesh dress comes with a 6 color hud in fitmesh as well as mesh body sizes.



+Muggle Born+ has come out with some new RibbonWedges. The fatpack includes a texture hud for the  ribbon, base, bow in 10 colors each for some great mixing and matching. It fits Belleza, Maitreya and Slink flat feet and can be found exclusively at Suicide Dollz May 28 - June 9


Banana Banshee created these great new Neko eyes which include applier huds for Lelutka, Catwa, Omega/ Genesis ( including bento eyes), and a pair of scripted mesh eyes. You can even texture these eyes separately for a great feral look. These are on sale at Lost & Found  May 22nd - June 18th


Dark Passions - Koffin Nails created these nails called, Ahoy Matey. A bit nautical and patriotic rolled into one. Great for the upcoming holidays. They come with a texture pallet of 12 different designs for Maitreya, Slink and Omega nails in all lengths.


Vengeful Threads  created this original mesh, Hamsa Necklace. It comes in sizes for men and women and includes gold and silver versions. This is non rigged and resizeable so you can adjust it to fit your avatar and is an exclusive at the Thrift Shop May 27 - June 18

Look No. 435: What’s All The Fuss About The Unicorn Frap?


Hello again my lovelies!

Have any of you tried Starbucks' new Unicorn Frappuccino? I haven't but have been seeing posts all over Facebook about it and so far the word is that it's really not all that great. I've been tossing around the idea of trying it...but a sour frap? Hmmmm...I'm not to sure about that. I don't know about you but when I'm having a yen for a sweet milkshake, the frap is my go to instead. Not quite sure if I want to waste my sweet craving for something that's going to make me pucker my lips. Now you have a little insite into the random thoughts of Violette Ravinelli...lol!

In this post I have an exclusive from KiB Designs at The Darkness Monthly Event (TDME) (closes on April 30th) called Lou Mini Dress.  It's mesh and fitted mesh made to fit both classic (5 standard mesh sizes) and TMP, Maitreya Lara, Slink Hourglass/Physique and Belleza Isis/Venus/Freya mesh bodies. It comes packed with a color HUD that will give you 6 great color options to choose from. A demo is available at the event.

The tattoo I'm wearing is from Carol G. Tattoo Wear called Cat's Way. It's an exclusive at the current round of Lost & Found (closes on May 1st) that just opened on the 22nd. It's an applier only tattoo for Maitreya Lara. Slink, Belleza, TMP and Omega-compatible mesh bodies. It's only available in black ink.

Have you checked out Exile Hair's new store design yet? If you haven't, you absolutely must! In fact, why don't you teleport over there an pick up the new release I'm wearing in this post called, Skyline. There are 10 color packs available but if you just can't make up your mind on which one to buy, you might want to pick up the fatpack Exile like's to call, All or Nothing. A demo is available for you to try before you buy. Oh, before I forget, while you're at the store, don't forget to pick up your free gift (group membership is not required).

The cute sandals I'm wearing is a new store release from KC Couture called Flavia Sandals. It's 100% original mesh mad to fit Slink, Tonic, Maitreya, Belleza, Eve and TMP flat mesh feet. It comes packed with a 45-color HUD that will give you loads of mixing and matching options to go with just about any outfit you choose you wear them with. A demo is available.

The Thrift Shop (closes on May 6th) is back at Depraved Nation and Bubble is participating in this event offering the earrings I'm wearing called Hoop Earrings Set V2. It's a 2-earrings set  that can be worn together or separated and each one has 10 color/texture options and resizer via the included HUD.

The skin I'm wearing is a new Catwa applier from Egozy called Amber. It is available in 10 skin tones ranging from light to dark tones. Each tone comes packed with 3 brows and 1 no brow options; 6 lipstick and 6 eyeshadow options; and body appliers for TMP, Maitreya Lara, Slink, Belleza and Omega-compatible mesh bodies. FYI, the Omega applier will work on Omega-compatible Bento Hands. This skin applier will work with Catwa's mesh and Bento heads. A demo is available.

Finally, the shape I'm wearing is from [West End] called Taylor and it's an exclusive at Lost & Found (closes on May 1st). It's a shape made specifically for Catwa's Lona Bento head. I'm a HUGE fan of [West End]'s shape because they are all so pretty and I'm so glad they finally made one for the Lona Bento head. The shape is copy/modifiable. A demo is available to try with your favorite skin applier.

I hope you like what I have to show you. Until next time...happy shopping!

Just Take Me Out Tonight


In the evening I've got to roam
Can't sleep in the city of neon and chrome
Feels too damn much like home
When the Spanish babies cry


So let's find a bar
So dark we forget who we are
Where all the scars
From the nevers and maybes die


Let's go out tonight
I have to go out tonight
You're sweet, wanna hit the street?
Wanna wail at the moon like a cat in heat?

Just take me out tonight

Please take me out tonight
Don't forsake me, out tonight
I'll let you make me out tonight
Tonight, tonight, tonight
