Late Bloomer

Posted on Updated on

/me stretches and purrs! 🐱

Lately I’m getting by on only around 4 hours of sleep a night (or morning, as the case may be) so finding a space of solace and serenity in the virtual world is bliss when I’m working on a new photo or post. When I spied the name Chakryn Forest in someone’s profile’s picks (not that I was perving or anything … ahem), it seemed familiar to me, and when I put together this look I thought an enchanted forest would make for a lovely backdrop.

This won’t be a particularly wordy post, because there are some last minute, event-exclusive lovelies that I wanted to share, and I’d much rather you go check them out than be scrolling through my rambles! (Although I truly adore and appreciate that you do!)

RAYNE is offering the chic, sleek Blossom jumpsuit as a free gift to group members, and it may be picked up from the Sneak Peek event, which is also where the beautiful La Boheme outfit resides that I featured on Monday. I found a sweet and apt accompaniment in the Rose Crown by db Dollz, which is a gacha prize from the Ross Fair Event. The crown comes in several sweet colors and combinations, and is beautifully crafted.

I peeked into The Dressing Room Fusion and fell hard for Izzie‘s lovely Arrowhead Necklace, which comes in both gold and silver metals with an versatile range of texture-change hues, and is a steal at just L$70. My favorite part is that it’s literally pointing at my bosoms, as if ensuring that people direct their gaze at my womanly curves. Hey, no complaints here! :)

My soft midnight black polish is from Alaska Metro‘s free tester pack, which offers Maitreya, Slink, Eve and Omega appliers. Her designs are dazzling and wildly affordable, so I highly recommend picking up the tester pack and then thoroughly buying out her entire Marketplace shop! And my ring is gift from a past round of We Love Roleplay by designer Fawny; it’s so pretty with its delicate leaf design. I realized that it was meant for the other hand, but I really wanted to show off the ring with this pose, so I was very appreciative that the ring has copy/mod permissions and I was able to easily create a left-hand version. I so dearly love when creators give us options like this!

Please be sure to check the end dates of the events as listed below, and if you haven’t already, take a peek at my Fashion & Shopping Events Calendar which will give you all the start and end dates of the currently ongoing events at a glance. I’m scheduling this post in the middle of the night, so by the time it publishes I’ll hopefully be dreaming sweetly. Good morning/night, dear readers! ♥

    Wonderful pic Ever. My new year’s resolution was not only to blog but learn photoshop, one down, one still to go! It doesn’t look like you used it at all on this shot thought, I’m addicted to windlight, I love what we can do just within the game :)

      You are the loveliest, thank you so much, Winnie! ♥

      Photoshop is a tricky beast, I’m picking up new things all the time (just watched a tutorial vid on YouTube an hour ago, actually) – and I gather it’s one of those programs that you never stop learning. I primarily use it to fix up fiddly things like nose shadows, edges that need to be sharpened/blurred, and sometimes to color-correct. You can get *really* fancy with it though, it’s amazing what’s possible!

      And you’re so right, Windlights are wildly addictive! They can change a sim or a scene so dramatically, I can’t get enough. We need a big repository somewhere where people can submit their windlights. I would go crazy downloading! :)
