I've been watching a lot of Merlin recently, so I'm going to blame that for today's look although I think I'm kind of puling off more of a Zena warrior princess look. The Color Challenge hue that Luna picked for this week is Iron. I searched high an low within my inventory and wasn't able to pull out a look I was 100 percent happy with until I decided to go for this Iron Maiden look.
The lingerie is something I've had in my inventory for a while so I apologize if they are no longer for sale. I tried my best to locate the LM and store location, but I was unsuccessful.
The next color that Luna has picked out is called Patina, and to be honest I have no clue what in the heck that color actually is and how to find it within my inventory. Looks like some shopping must be done. Luna is definitely not making this second round of challenges easy, but I guess that what makes them even more fun. Searching, finding and finally dressing up the perfect color.

Week Three of Luna's 52 weeks of Color challenge is Electric Indigo. For this color I'm sporting my best X-Men look, the seductive villainess Mystique. Mystique is one of my favorite X-men characters because she has the ability to change her look to whatever she desires. Mystique is also a great fighter and she looks pretty kick ass too.
Next week's color is Iron. I always get a bit stuck on the gray scale colors. Cross your fingers and kiss your elbow that I can pull off a cute look.

"The rarest thing in the world is a woman who is pleased with photographs of herself."

I've been trying really hard the past couple of days to find the perfect look to show you the new Adam and Eve Skin, "Natalie" because she's just so pretty. Natalie has vibrant makeup colors, Deep dark rich smoky eyes and kissable lips to compliment each eyeshadow.
At first I was worried Natalie wouldn't be a good fit with my avie, but it only took some minor changes to my shape to bring Natalie into full bloom. My favorite parts of Natalie are the eyebrows and the options, more specifically the cleavage enhancement and the freckles. Natalie is available in twelve different makeup options and in four skin color ranges.
Natalie is a beautiful skin and I'm going to enjoy wearing it because it makes me feel very pretty. Natalie is worth stopping by and testing out a demo. I hope it's a wonderful fit for you and you enjoy it as much as I do.

Moving on to Luna's 52 Week of Color Challenge were stumbling on to Week 2, Coral. When I first saw Coral as the color I became all excited, because to me Coral is a pinkish hue; however upon reading Luna's Blog she had a more orange color that what I had lined up, so please excuse me if my color hues are slightly off. I suppose that's part of the fun that Luna creates in these challenges; she allows us to make variations and provide our own interpretations of the color.
For Today's post I am mostly wearing one of my favorite designers of all time Nylon Pinkney of Nylon Outfitters. For the most recent Collab88 Nylon has released a uber cute Kimono Dress. This dress is available in three colors: Red, Blue and Yellow. ( I purchased two) I'm entranced by the hand drawn patterns incorporated into the dress as well as the vibrant bright colors that were chosen. To me this dress was the perfect coral color.

Every now and then we find ourselves needing a little break from the hustle we create for ourselves. We want something different something a bit out of our ordinary every day pattern. Sometimes we can fill this void by visiting a new location, making new friends, re-connecting with old ones or perhaps falling back on something we once loved and enjoyed.
It's this self therapy that I find most soothing and necessary when life gets crazy and overwhelming. For me I fall back on older habits to recharge my batteries: blogging and creating. I leave behind social pressures and retreat back into my hermit like status. The solitude is not something I feel is a sentence; but rather is something I find comforting peaceful and relaxing.

"Hermits Have No Peer Pressure"-Steven Wright
It's not often that I take the time to write about Men's clothing,but when Phinneas Vella, owner of PEER; dropped off a blogger package to me I was intrigued and had to give a peek at what was inside. What I found was quite surprising created and designed for men, but working quite well with only minor changes for women PEER clothing is suburb and fashion ready.
I know how hard it is to find quality men's clothing in SL, it's a challenge to say the least. In the past some of my male friends have asked where to pick up clothing for men. They want something casual, masculine and true to their style in RL. I am happy to say that now I can suggest PEER to them. I think these styles would look fantastic on men who are looking for a way to compliment their female style partners. In fact I'm actually going to send Frankie to pick up a few tees from PEER. (Frankie has a casual style and is prone to wearing only tees and jeans for his everyday style.) PEER has a large collection of fashion tees which I hope will make a wonderful addition to his inventory.
Today I am waring the button up koi shirt in white and the my turn cogs leather pants in black. The shirt has buttons across the front as well as a collar and cuffs prims. Each attachment is modified by a resizer script so you are ensured to get precision accuracy in finding your perfect size. The decorative Koi on the front is a soft blue color and would work with not only jeans, but with more structured fancy pants such as a khaki. Making this shirt wonderful to dress up and to dress down. The cogs leather pants in black are accented by the blue gears along the right side of the legs. It includes sculpted bottoms and a decorative patch across the rear for PEER clothing label. These pants are edgy, tight and help create a street worthy style for any man or woman.
I hope that you take the time and visit PEER. Its a hidden gem and would make a wonderful addition into any guys inventory.

"We will open the book. Its pages are blank. We are going to put words on them ourselves. The book is called Opportunity and its first chapter is New Year's Day." ~Edith Lovejoy Pierce
It has been about a month since I actually took the time to blog. Sorry for my absence, but I had a serious case of the Holiday Blues and I lost that blogging feeling for a while. (I guess a year and a half away from home finally caught up to me.) I am however, planning on getting back on track with my blogging. Thankfully Luna has started another 52 weeks of Color Challange, which gave me the motivation I needed to work on another post. Since it's the New Year Luna has opted for this week's color to be Champagne. Champagne is a wonderful color and to me has a symbolic meaning of renewal and celebration; which is exactly what the new year should be about. For more information on Luna's color challenge please view her blog, She provides links to the flickr group as well as next week's color. (Coral)
I don't want to make empty New Years resolutions or promises but I just want to remember the spirit of rebirth and starting new. I hope that I can start this year off right; stay on my blogging path and invest more time within my little store.
Here's wishing you a wonderful and Happy 2012. May you have, "Champagne wishes and Caviar dreams"...
