Horror Haute is Simply the Best...

This month, we are celebrating the Horror Haute... There have been some massive changes within the event planning, and we've even taken on the day to day running of two new to the team events! 
So this month, to give our awesome organisers - Miss AnnabelleLee Dreadlow and Miss Aggie MacTavish - a chance to sort things out in their heads as to how planning will work moving forward, the Horror Haute Theme for this month is "Simply the Best"...
Participating designers - and there are a good handful of them - will be releasing items so that you can grab them once again at their Horror Haute prices... They may even have created some new, exclusives for the event, so I cannot wait to show you what's in store...
Over the next week or so I plan on sharing with you some of the releases, chosing my favourites from their favourites... For now though I am going to share a collage of my blogging for the event... A collage of my own personal "Simply the Best of Horror Haute" as a blogger!!
Some of these are fairly old, but from the top working down, I'll share a link so you can check out the details! Top Left is a Nightmare in the Kitchen, then in the right corner is a sign that Even Hell's Demon's love Horror Haute! Bottom left, possibly the oldest photo I've chosen is something about summoning a demon with a Horror Haute Tribute, and then a nod to how excited Horror Haute makes me because I was Rolling or Falling for one round of the event LOL... The photo in the middle is one of my favourite Horror Haute - if not my favourite - I LOVED this theme so much and we all were told to Bring Out Your Dead for Horror Haute's plague theme...
Still I have a lot of work to get on with to show off the awesome goodies you can get your hands on this month, or if you cannot wait to check it out, go take a look at the Horror Haute Event Space!!! It's Simply the Best!!!

Being in town is too hot, I want to go to The Beach!

Yes you saw that right, being in town is too hot, I want to go to the beach and stroll along in the sand, then play in the waves, and even because I am really special laze in the shade with a really good book... Maybe it's not the best place to do it, here in Holland, I mean the beaches are pretty but not exactly Mediterranean when it comes to water temperature! 
Still once all the hard work is done in preparation for the terribly hot weekend ahead - bare in mind I'm a big girl in RL lol, I don't handle heat well - I plan on sitting in my breathing space, by the water and taking it easy!!!
For now though I will share with you my dreams of being somewhere cooler hehe... 
I found a lovely beach to play on the other day... It's an adult location, simply known as The Beach but it's so well put together that it will no doubt be somewhere I visit again!
I wore a very loose fitting dress in a fabulous retro print, from Sweet Lies, that I picked up at the recent round of The Fantasy Collective, and teamed that with a pair of super cute flat sandals from [ShiZZo]. If you haven't ever heard of [ShiZZo], don't worry neither had I, it is the store where one half of the Signature Pose team - the Shilenni part not the Pinkie bit - sells pretty things that are not poses!
Looking at it now, I am starting to feel a bit cooler but I've just been told it's time to go out in RL so YAY I'm gonna actually go and cool off!!! Tata for now!!

Showering with Dinner

All the adventuring in the last two days has left me a little stinky!!! I've been wearing big heavy dresses in the heat of the summer and running around like a crazy loon so maybe, just maybe it is time for me to take a nice cold shower!!! 
The Gators have just had a new one installed in the swamp... YAY!!! The only bad part is that it has been put right next to where we hang the Gator food! Looks like this week they are getting Shark?! 
Both the shower and the shark are some of the awesome new items that came from the mind of Mr. Wavie Haller of Consignment. Now, I've been a bit of a bad blogger where these things are concerned, as the Shower WAS an event release and I missed it! To get your hands on this shower you're going to need to go to the mainstore, but the shark IS still currently available at an event... Summerfest'15 to be exact!
The pose I have used, isn't one that comes with the shower though so be warned! It's one of the newer releases from Signature Pose, in a set called Lucille. If you're a lover of posing, don't forget to check out the Signature Pose Sale by the way... EVERYTHING IS REDUCED FOR A SHORT TIME ONLY! 
To get my look we may also have another problem LOL... This stuff is kinda old but you may still be able to find things... The awesome can rollers for example, it's always good to recycle old cans - and that is exactly what this hair is called Recycle! It's an older style from Ploom - now known as Doe - but it or something similar may still be available! The towel and rubber duck set though, I am really not so sure about. The store's owner now has a newly re-branded store in their profile but I cannot find this set anywhere, so sorry guys and gals, the towel is no longer available!! 
I'm such a bad blogger LOL, maybe I should hang there instead of the shark as Gator Food?! 

What is she wearing;
Hair: Ploom (Now Doe) - Recycle  
Skin: Glam Affair - Lauren in America 07 (Past Collabor88 Item)

Let's paint our bodies with some Body Art

Body Art comes in a variety of different forms... Tattoos are a very expressive Body Art form, but then Make-up can be too, and if you're anything like me there is nothing that beats a good scar!! I know that I'm just macabre in that but hey I'm not the only one in SL lol..
However, if you love any kind of Body Art, there is a hunt coming in SL which will be right up your street and then some.
The Body Art Hunt starts tomorrow - July 1st - and runs through the month, allowing those with a passion for body art, the chance to get their hands on some awesome freebies...
Tattoos are dominant of course, but there are also other artistic twists on things like eyes, nails and make-ups, so even if you don't wear tattoos this could be a fun hunt for you!
I've played with a few different things in this photo... I have a lot of lovely things in the wings waiting to be played with, but for now this is what you get...
Starting with the non-event stuff, I have to give another shout out to Magika, who are in the midst of a 50% off sale... I bought this Curious Hair for half price... Isn't it cute?!
Then on to the Body Art, starting from the top and possibly least noticeable... Banana Banshee has created a set of Carnival Eyes, and I'm wearing a spiral version here. Each design comes in dark or light versions, and with a variety of different ways of wearing them too!
Moving down I smeared my lips with a dark red Laquer Lips colour from SongBird. This includes 4 different, but basic colours, AND the snakebite piercing that you can see in the photo too!
Lastly - for this post about the Body Art hunt anyway - the gorgeous chest tattoo from Tenjin called Fancy Flower is a release for the hunt. I don't tend to wear tattoos very often but I couldn't resist the feminine rose with it's long soft looking tendrils...
There will be more body art to come so if you like that kinda thing but for now, I'm done with work, it's time to go home LOL...

Running from the Snow Prison...

Yesterday was all about Summer Heat, but today I will tell you a little secret... I'm already too hot, and am wishing for the coldness of winter hehe... Sounds weird huh, but as a big girl I don't take to heat too well and I tend to end up feeling pretty bleh, so I will say now, it's not that long till Christmas anymore LOL and so there will be cold weather.
The photo that I have chosen to post today is NOTHING about hot weather, and it features a LOT of snow hehe...
This - what could be a princess but I'm not entirely sure - is running away from the Kingdom of Galanthus. Perhaps she is a princess from a far off land, perhaps she was held prisoner in the icy fortress, we will never know but the blue emblem of her kingdom is emblazened across the back of her soft warm Stark Winter Cloak. Her dress, in the Direwolf style that is so popular amongst the nobility of her people, matches the colour of her cloak perfectly, and to top it all off - the reason that we can assume she's a princess and not just a pretty girl - is that the Winterfell Tiara rests in her curly red locks. The pieces of her outfit can be found at The Instruments this month, as releases for the store ImmateriA, and her hair is a wig from Magika - which was purchased in their 50% off storewide sale this week!
The stories for the last two posts are about two very different beauties, but to be honest that's one of my favourite things about SL... I can play dress up and be whoever I want to be... One day I am a Bollywood beauty and the next I'm a snow princess... What will I be tomorrow?!

What is she wearing;
Hair: Magika - Lessons
Circlet: ImmateriA - Winterfell Circlet (Available Now at The Instruments
Skin: Glam Affair - Lauren in America 07 (Past Collabor88 Item)
Face Wounds: Utopiah - Excessive Pain Makeup
Nose Piercing: DirtyStories - Heart Nose Piercing (Past Suicide Dollz Item)
Cloak: ImmateriA - Stark Winter Cloak (Available Now at The Instruments
Dress: ImmateriA - Direwolf in Winter Fig (Available Now at The Instruments)

It's going to be an Indian Summer

I've just gotten back from my vacation, and it felt like I was a kid in a candy store or it was Christmas morning... There were so many gorgeous things awaiting my attention in my hoard, things I'd logged in just to make sure I didn't miss out on, and things that I had been sent by people I blog for, that I didn't know where to begin... I was pulling outfits together like a crazy person, and I now have so many pretty looks ready and waiting that I am not quite sure where to start when it comes to covering them all!!
All of them are different, all of them are gorgeous... So I have treated it like a lucky dip, the posts are ready to be written and I close my eyes and open one hehe... This happens to be the first of my lucky dip of posts hehe...
This look was inspired by the gorgeous release from Stargazer Creations for this month's round of The Instruments. I love the vibrant colours, and as soon as I saw it I was Bollywood inspired... It comes with the pretty tiara and some VERY large shoulder pads - of which I decided to wear just one... I'm cool like that lol... Besides it would have clashed with my awesome braid, which is a new CATWA release for Cosmopolitan...
I sat for a while and henna tattooed my hands in a Boom design - from Sweet Poison, which perfectly fit with the dress and then all that was needed was a photography location...
I spent AGES looking for somewhere, forgetting the one place that simply screams Indian Elegance... ZAARA!!! Once I was there, it didn't take me long to find a secluded but romantic spot to capture the perfect picture that would represent the Indian Summer heat and showcase this gorgeous dress flawlessly!
What a beautiful way to start the week!!

What is she wearing;
Hair: CATWA - Leah (Available Now at Cosmopolitan)
Outfit (Including Tiara): Stargazer Creations - Lady of the Sands in Sunset (Available Now at The Instruments)
Hand Tattoos: Sweet Poison - Bloom Hands (Past Event Release)
Pose: Signature Pose - Ade 5 (Available Now for My Slink Obsession)

Welcoming Me Back...

That's it, the holiday is over, and I have been welcomed home with a bump LOL... No more living in cloud Emily land, where your parents look after you and everything is relaxing and fun... Its straight back into the reality, and by that I mean normal life including my SL and all the work that can come with it LOL... 
No sooner had I logged in yesterday, and was working through the mountain, when drama struck... Luckily Hell was able to handle it and I didn't need to be involved LOL but sometimes it really is like jumping on a skateboard and rolling down a HUGE hill!!!
There is no way that I'd normally do this, it would freak me out LOL. I might if I was allowed to sit down on the board, but there is no way I'd be as brave as my Rudh dolly and plan on doing it standing! Though I guess when you are able to handle drama, then sometimes you have to take the risk huh?!
I'm not even dressed for the task ahead of me really LOL... I mean OK I was wearing some combat boots, which I guess are smarter than heels or bare foot, which tends to be my usual foot look! But the dress, although it is very cute - from Sn@tch called Hayden - doesn't really look like it will be good protection against falling from a fast moving skateboard! 
Talking of skateboards, if you want some good boarding poses, and OK these are made for a man but they are perfectly good to be used by women too - as I proved hehe - then head to Signature Pose... 
Someone get the first aid kit ready, I have a feeling I might need it!!!

What is she wearing;
Hair: Wasabi Pills - Reiko Mesh Hair in Crystal Pink (Past FLF Item)

Dress: Sn@tch - Hayden Casual Dress
