Paint, Prisms, and a Good Pu'erh

Hello Tea Readers! This past week seems to have mimicked last week in regards to hectic schedules and crazy times. I was able to relax a bit more (but I think that was with help from some wonderful bourbon chocolates and some fun company). The events I want to tackle this week is Kustom9 and The Epiphany Gacha.

Boots: Reign Bow Saddle @FaMESHed

Kustom9 opened last Friday, and the is only ONE thing I bought... It is a comfy looking sweater with a belt by Zenith. And the BIG reason why I bought this sweater wasn't really for the comfinese-look factor--it was for the one color option....of all the colors. I adore the rainbow color of the sweater I bought. It is fun, it goes with pretty much everything, and I just adore it. The belt comes with a color change Hud, and the sweater pairs well with some jeans I bought by Blueberry (I am really growing this brand). I have paired the sweater and jeans with some Converse Tennis shoes by FateWear, and I have also paired it with boots by Reign. I just love the color in this sweater. There are other colors, and while they do look nice....I think the rainbow colors are the BEST!

Dress: Pixicat Siren Dress Short RARE @EpihanyGacha, Boots: Reign Mishi Thigh High Boots, Hair: NEW TRUTH Kasimire @EpiphanyGacha, Necklace: Maxi Gossamer Tie Mask Handcuffs Small, Familiar: Jian Avigon RARE Arm-Perch @EpiphanyGacha, Lipgloss: Glam Affair Romy Goddess, Skin: Glam Affair Katra, Eyes: IKON Charm and Redgrave Natural6 Lashes, Slink Hands

The Epiphany Gacha opened sometime last week, and I didn't even bother trying to teleport in because I knew it would be full, laggy, and kinda crazy for a while (Plus there were only a few things I was even interested in to begin with). I was really wanting some of these Avigon Familiars by Jian and a hair by Truth. While I was trying to teleport in, I was looking on the guide on Seraphim and I decided if I had the linden, I would go ahead and try a few other gachas. And I could not believe what happened when I got in. I got there right after a region restart. And the first 3 or 4 gachas I played, I got the rare first try.... WHEN AND HOW DOES THAT HAPPEN?! I don't know if it was because of the region restart or what, but I was so excited. I ended up playing every gachaon my list, and again, I won the rares. Not first go for for the last few, but within a few "pulls". I was so excited. I would highly recommend for these gacha events, and any event for that matter to try to look at the Seraphim guide, and plan out how much you are willing to spend.

Sweater: Zenith Waist Long Sweater with Shirt @Kustom9, Jeans: Blueberry Tink, Shoes: FateStep Nylon Chucks, Necklace: Maxi Gossamer Pearl Necklaces in Pink (Gossamer Group Gift exclusive), Ring: Ariskea Poetric Women Wedding Ring, Hair: !Oleander Stefanie in Siren @TheEpiphanyGacha, Familiar: Jian Painted Prism Arm Perched Avigon @TheEpiphanyGacha, Skin: Glam Affair Amberly Lovely Day, Lipstick: Glam Affair Romy Goddess, Eyes: Ikon Charm and Redgrave Natural6 Lashes

The amazing thing about Epiphany is you can trade you extras for points, and when you have enough points you can get an exclusive item. The exclusive item I really wanted was the Rainbow Prism Avigon by Jian. There is a perched one and a arm one. and I wanted the arm one. And what was really PERFECT about the Rainbow Prism Avigon is he matches my rainbow sweater by Zenith!!! Those items were made for each other! So adorable...I could die.

Again, I would highly recommend looking at Seraphim's shopping guide for the Epiphany, and for any event really. Plan ahead before you go!!! Let's make this week amazing!!! Hugs and Smooches!!!!!!

Let's have a Rainbow Tea Party on the Holodeck~

Happy Sunday everyone! I hope this week has been relaxing for everyone--for me it has been filled with work and crazy weather and lots of stress. I think it is time to start planning a vacation! Despite it being a hectic work week, I was able to log on and chat with friends for a bit and managed to get this week's post done. Let's talk about Collabor88...

Outfit:  Blueberry Lola Bustier Top and Denim Shorts @Collabor88, Hair: Wasabi Pills Ocean @Hairology, Tattoo: Reckless HazeIII, Earrings: Zaara Sarika Feather Earrings @Collabor88, Skin: Glam Affair Katra Party, Slink Hands and Feet, Eyes: IKON Charm and Redgrave Natural6 Lashes, Whatever Fang Mesh Teeth

This month's theme is Holographic, and the color palette is very lovely. Lots of pale soft colors, which I LOVE, and some of the items have a sort of rainbow effect. Me being the lovely eloquent lady with words I refer to it as an oil slick effect. Lots of colors blended together. I didn't buy a lot at the event, but I did flip out when I saw Zaara was back again with some GORGEOUS earrings. They are feather earrings, and there are two types, one with long feathers and one with short feathers as an earcuff. LOVE LOVE LOVE. I bought the Azure earrings and the Peacock earcuffs because I like peacocks. I know I am going to get more of the feather earrings, they are just so pretty. The earrings come in rigged versions for a few mesh heads and the Lelutka mesh head version also fits the default body okay. There is also an unrigged version, but I like the rigged one since the earrings are so long. They really are a focal piece for any outfit. I only have one issue with the earcuffs--it is hard to pair with hair. I have a few short styles and a few updos... all the them are too "big" on the sides. I will admit I need to resize and move them around a bit to try to get them to work. But with my crazy schedule, I haven't really had the time to do that with them.

Outfit: Pixicat Flirty Skirt and Top @Collabor88, Hair: NEW Magika Love Song, Headband: LaGyo Pastel Flowers Headband, Bracelet: Noodles Classic Love Bracelet Rose Gold, Necklace: Tea.S Pixi Dust Necklace in Gold, Ring: Ariskea Poetric Women Wedding Ring, Skin: Glam Affair Katra Party, Eyes: IKON Charm and Redgrave Natural6 Lashes, Whatever Fang Mesh Teeth, Slink Hands and Feet

Blueberry has a fun tank and short set out with the tank top in that oil slick texture. I know the texture isn't called oil slick, but it looks like it to me, and I personally like it. Also, Pixicat has a fun shirt and skirt combo out which is fun and flirty (it is also named Flirty, so it's really just perfect). I have the the rainbow skirt and the simple white top. It looks really flirty and fun. I really like it.

Sorry for the shortish post this week, but I had to share my Collabor88 spoils. I hope all of you have a wonderful week, and stay safe!!! Hugs and Smooches~

White Tea to Soothe the Soul

Happy Sunday everyone! It has been a long and stressful week for me crazy work issues. I had some crazy hours at work and I hardly logged on during the week. I was able to log on long enough to get some pictures and this post done! I hope you enjoy.

FaMESHed opened New Year's Day, and it took me FOREVER to teleport in! And what drove me crazy was one of my friends and my sister were able to teleport in relatively least easier than me. There is only one thing I wanted from FaMESHed--a gown by Just Because called Maya. The gown is very elegant, yet provocative at the same time. There is a deep cut in the cleavage (like really goes down to the belly button), and there is a long slit on the thigh. The broach comes with a color change hud. It took me a while to style the Maya, and the necklace I choose to pair with the dress is by Maxi Gossamer. The necklace has a long gorgeous back, so it doesn't distract in the front of the gown.

Gown: Just Because Maya @FaMESHed, Hair: Elikatira Karee, Earrings: Maxi Gossamer Ananya White Pearls, Necklace: Maxi Gossamer Tiffany Back, Ring: Ariskea Poetric Women Wedding Ring, Shoe: Poute Victoria High Heels, Skin: Glam Affair Caroline New Day, Eyes: IKON Charm and Redgrave Natural6 Lashes, Whaver Fang Mesh Teeth, Slink Hands and Feet

There are also come cute boots which are compatible with jeans by Reign at this round, and there is also a cute dress by NYU. I like both the boots and the dress paired together. I didn't photograph them for two reasons: (1) my favorite item is Maya, and (2) I did not have enough time to take another picture.

I hope everyone has a wonderful week this week! Stay safe and have fun! Hugs and Smooches Tea Readers~
