I’m so damn cold today. I’ll admit, I often sleep sans nightwear but last night I woke about 3am, freezing cold and had to go put PJs on. It didn’t seem to warm me up though and here I am still feeling the chill on a sunshiney Spring afternoon.
The last two nights have been so good at AAi. Iain did a ‘Hitch-hikers Guide’ themed set on Monday and Kanji knocked it out the park with a dreamy uplifting vibe last night. Tonight, I’m thinking we have one of our Chris’s last sets. He’s been promoted at work which is fabulous news and very well-deserved, but it does mean he won’t be able to skive off any longer and do a set for us at the normal time. He’ll remain very much a part of the family and might be able to make guest appearances sometimes, but we’ll miss him heartily.
My friend Peri recommended a couple of films to me last night, both of which I’d seen previews of and asked Thom if we could watch and he’d not said no, but he had shuffled them down the viewing queue, declaring them ‘girl’s films’, so I’m going to make a date with myself to watch them while he’s away. Maybe get the Kleenex tissues out and have a real sob. Of course, if he watches a film and needs Kleenex, it’s a different kind of situation altogether 😀

More Powder Pack goodies – and this isn’t even it! I’m doing another one tomorrow too. The YS&YS Kitty skin comes in 3 skin shades with 5 eyebrow options & no brows (shown) and 5 liptstick shades (not shown). It has an almost powdery softness to the skin tone which looks like you’re wearing make-up, and so suited my more dressy look for this blog very well.
I paired it with the Glam Affair Spring Make-Up set for both eye makeup and lipstick and finished off with the very glamorous Modish Eyelashes.
You can find out all the info on the Powder Pack on the website linked in the credits, above, and either get packs which have already been released or book in for the next one at half the price.
TKW’s Vrba Hair is out now at Shiny Shabby. It’s an updo which would equally do for formal or casual wear, I like the soft edges and tendrils of hair escaping the bun near the face.
The star of this particular show comes in the form of a new release by Addams at their Mainstore. The Curie Crochet Dress and Margaret Shoes (which you can have at knee or ankle height) are elegant and risque with the crochet dress showing glimpses of skin to anyone who looks more closely.
Here’s some more pics…
And finally, here is the ‘jigging for the rigging’ video. I noticed a tiny amount of breakthrough on the elbows of the dress during extreme movements or poses, but honestly, the elbow area on the Maitreya Lara has never been my favourite of the joints, they’re a bit clumsy. It’s certainly not a deal breaker for me!
