It’s Monday again. I’m pretty sure there are at least 5 Mondays in each month and only 3 Fridays. I’ve kept an eye on the first stage of the French Presidential elections and was relieved today to see that Macron is in the lead with Le Pen in second place. On May 7th, the country will turn out once again to (hopefully) vote Macron in as President and avoid the craziness that would ensue if the French Nationalist, Le Pen, were to get into power.
I’ve never been much into worldwide politics, it’s not my fave way to spend my time, but lately it has seemed more important than ever that sanity prevails somewhere and I’m hoping France is the first stronghold. It’s little more than a pipe dream at the moment to think that the UK elections in June could net us a result I’d like to see, and even if we were to get a Labour (socialist) government into power, much of the damage has already been done and is unlikely to get undone.
Vive la France! Show everybody how it’s done and lead the way to a better world. Please.

So I’m back with another Powder Pack post. I wanted to show that you can make both traditionally beautiful as well as alternative looks with any of the Powder Packs, but all the items shown today are from the April pack, which you can still buy for 3000l$. (Pre-order price is only 1500l$). You can get old packs or pre-order the next for both Catwa and Lelutka heads (different packs though, different contents) on the Powder Pack Marketplace.
I loved the amara beauty skins included in the pack. Justine is a sheer and dewy look and a total of 12 skin shades were included in the pack. Now that is a fatpack! For this look, I chose the palest and paired it with charmingly fae-like offerings from Zibska on the eyes and lips and topped the look off with #adored’s fabulous ombre lashes which I recoloured bright pink via the Catwa HUD. Pretty nifty huh?
I also wanted to point out the adaptability of **RealEvil**’s Deah Gloves and Rings set. The HUD allows for you to choose all manner of colours – and styles too because it includes a section to alpha out various parts of the design – I normally would go for something more traditional looking – black, brown or cream – but for this look I wanted something bright and zingy.
TKW’s Teike hair is available now at Tres Chic. I normally use the Blonde 01 HUD but I chose the Colors 01 HUD this time and found a range of pastels included (the HUDS are so generous).
Here’s some more pics including a ‘well lit, no shit’ shot…
And finally, let’s walk a mile in my shoes with our ‘jigging for the rigging’ video. I should say that I turned off my physics for this video because the leaves don’t move with the physics, so it didn’t look so pretty. Other than that, let’s go!
