Hi everyone! Well now that some time has passed and I seem to be able to get more things in order in both RL and SL I was accepted back (thank-you so very much) but the wonderful Skin Designer, Spicy! They make fantastic skins. I honestly tried them and fell in love at Skinfair 2020 but I saw they were taking applications and BAM I applied.

Today’s look is featuring their newest release specifically for Genus. It’s BOM and has so many options as far as skintones, hairbases, brow options etc. You can read more about it on their blog too HERE

So without further ado let’s see…..

Hi Everyone! So this will be my last Role Play photo for WLRP. I do have an item I took and I’m trying to work that in someplace else. But I asked for this beauty below and just had to do something colorful, loud, and pretty all while staying true to it’s natural beauty. So I hope I accomplished that in your eyes.

I’m sitting here sipping my favorite brew. It’s just outta the pot and it’s oh so delish. I JUST bought my first French Press. I’ll try that out tomorrow. In the meantime let’s see…

~River~

Hi Everyone! I know the Title is a little off from my picture.  River or a Mermaid?  Well I promise you it’s from the Creator 😛 and not my mis-understanding.  It’s reffering to the skin and nothing more.  I’m less “creative” in my titles so I tend to use the object I’m showing and rarely do I stray from that…sometimes I do…it’s not my strong side AT ALL!

~No Love Emma~

Hi Everyone~  Ok, so I have to admit I’m not really a lover of all things Valentines Day.  I mean…I get the holiday, and I love what it stands for…but I’m a bit old-fashioned when I think to myself.  IF you really love and care about someone it’s NOT up to some damn box of chocolates or flowers to make the person feel better.  Just simply say I love you and do something extra for that person everyday.  Even if it’s just picking up your clothes, doing the dishes or watching her/his favorite movie when you’d rather be watching YouTube tutorials.  So this is a cutesie pic…but it’s a cutesie outfit and well it kinda deserved to have “my version” of Valentines Day lol…..Anywhooooo’s!
