Come Away With Me

And I want to wake up with the rain
Falling on a tin roof
While I’m safe there in your arms
So all I ask is for you
To come away with me in the night
Come away with me

Shiny or Shabby?

Do you feel shabby or shiny? Don’t worry if you can’t choose because the Shiny Shabby event that opens today offers you the best of both worlds. I’ve already spoiled myself with many items from all my favorite stores but let’s start off with MINA and Glam Affair for today’s post. I think it’s been 2 of 3 years since I’ve first discovered MINA at the annual Hair Fair and at first what drew me in most were the Dutch names given to her hairstyles. I’m Dutch myself and I guess anything that’s Dutch immediately stands out to me especially in a world as diverse as Second Life. Ever since, I’ve kept an eye on MINA hair and have grown to truly love not just the style of her hair but the texturing especially. High quality hair textures which nowadays always come with a materials ready version of the hair too giving it that extra shine and definition. For the Shiny Shabby event, MINA’s released a new hairstyle named Kaya, a simple and messy yet stylish updo with some lose strands coming down her face and sticking out of the bun. The type of hairdo that would match a posh blouse as well as that old raggedy favorite sweater that you should be throwing out but can’t. For the blog, I’ve paired Kaya up with a simple tank top and cardigan and I’ll probably continue wearing this hairstyle for quite a few days since it’s become an instant new favorite. Now as far as Glam Affair goes, I won’t bore you again with how much I love their skins but instead we’ll get straight to the good news. For Shiny Shabby, Glam Affair has released another series of ‘Alice’ skins this time accompanied by 12 appliers for the PXL Sweet Lips. Sweet Lips is the new mesh mouth by PXL Creations, they only have 1 style at the moment but it does come with teeth and lip piercing options so it’s definitely worth checking out. Matching the mouth to your face and skin with Glam Affairs new appliers is a breeze. I think for the first time in mesh mouth history I haven’t stood there messing with the size and the shape of my face for over an hour until I got it on right. With that said, let’s move on to ‘the look’!
