Just because I deserve it...

Good Morning Everyone, Today I decided to treat myself since I did such a good job keeping up on my blogging duties during the holidays. A friend dropped me a landmark to KaTink, a  Pose, Background and Prop Store. It also has a landscaped sim for  photography or just hanging out to meet new friends. You can see more pictures of the Sim on my earlier post today.

I ended up picking up a couple pose sets and some really cool backgrounds on sale at KaTink. While exploring their sim I found an adorable cafe perfect for a photo shoot. I decided to find an outfit that would go perfect in that setting.

It had been a while since I treated myself with a new outfit from Just Because, so it was the first store I visited. I am a long time fan of Annie Melson's designs. She puts her heart and soul into her creations. It is all original mesh with hand drawn texture beautifully detailed. It is one of the few stores in Second Life that I am willing to spend my Lindens when there isn't a sale going on. It's that good.. worth every cent.  It makes me feel good to support her. I don't ever want her to go away. Yes, I am in her blogging group, but I also buy a lot of my outfits from her.

And this one I did. Its  an older release from 2013 called Eden. I  missed the release of this dress as I was away from SL at the time, so it's totally new to me. It is a spring garden dress. I know totally out of season for now, but I had to have it. I couldn't resist the lavender/black tone. It is gorgeous. The dress is 100% rigged mesh and comes in 15 different color variations! It is a very versatile look and can be worn for just about any setting.

I love how the texture pulls on the chest, makes it very realistic and the the detailing on the belt is smashing. To go with the dress I treated myself to the  new Minerva hair from Truth. I don't normally buy Truth hair since it is so popular and I hate showing up somewhere with the same hair as everyone else, but I absolutely loved the jeweled accent. And the fact that it is on sale at UBER helped out a lot on my need to be cheap. 

I also splurged and got myself some pretty accessories like the Erzulie's Love Charm and the Boho Bliss Tassel-Tastic  Bracelets by Maxi Gossamer. I feel the same about Maxi Gossamer as I do Just Because. Maxi makes amazing jewelry, all 100% original mesh, hand textured. She always has some new pretty I have to add to my collection. She also has a ton of sales and gives away frequent group gifts.  I also purchased some new nail polish for my slink fingers from Nine Inch Nails. The palette I am wearing is the Frenchies Plain. They have a matching set for toenails too. You can get a smaller palette if you prefer to spend less. I really like the rich colors Nine Inch Nails uses in their palettes.

Another beautiful original design by Just Because is the Sera mini dress. This dress is perfect for an outing when you have a need to feel sexy. This mini dress oozes it. It is 100% original mesh and textures, available in 12 colors in 5 standard sizes and fitted for the Belleza Venus Mesh Body. Be sure to get the right version. There are demos available for trying it on first.

The mini dress comes with a rigged and unrigged belt so you can fit it perfectly to your avatar. To complement both outfits, I am wearing my favorite pair of peep-toed Maria Heels by Just Because. You do need to have Slink High Feet to use these. They are 100% rigged mesh and are HUD driven with multiple array of colors. This makes these heels perfect with just about any outfit you can imagine from casual to elegant.  

I am absolutely trilled with Deluxe Body Factory's New Toffee skin tone in their Poppy line. The skin kit comes with  a clean, natural face without brows, 2 cleavage options, four eyebrows on tattoo layer (ash, ginger, auburn and jet), ten  lipstick options on tattoo layer and six eye shadow options on tattoo layer. Appliers pack: #TheMeshProject mesh body (incl. hands and feet), SLINK Physique mesh body, SLINK mesh hands and feet, Lena Mesh body, Lola Tango / Visage and Baby Bump. Matching #TMP head installers for TheMeshProjects mesh head is separately available. The lip gap is formed using LeLutka's TeethAlpha.

My Starfall mesh eyes are from IKON's Hope collection. I have recently fallen in love with mesh eyes. I have been a long time fan of IKON so I am quite excited to see mesh versions included in with all their new eye collections. In fact I went and bought several sets when I got these. You will see those in my next post. I think this one is getting rather long. The elf ears peaking out from the hair are new releases by Mandala.

I used my new pose sets, Chic Sets 1, 3, & 4 by KaTink Poses for this posts photos. 
They turned out quite well.

I also purchased a couple of their photo backgrounds which are on sale for 60L each. I am quite excited to see all the wonderful back ground textures offered. I will definitely be back for more. 

Also, while there I was given a free curved backdrop to use with the back grounds when I clicked the group joiner to see how much it costs to join. For those interested it's 100L. Or if you go around the back corner you can pick up three great freebies, two background packs and a texture organizer with a curved backdrop. It's definitely worth a visit if you are into making photos like I am. I liked them so much they have earned a spot on my Must Stop 'n Shop List for Group Gifts and Freebies.
