Celebrity Skin

Meet Cooper, the  newest addition to the Belleza skin line!  A male skin, that’s right, and one the guys can get excited about and the ladies can drool over.  Cooper is a versatile skin, the aspect I love most about it, you can be blond OR brunette, which is not always possible.  In fact, I can’t think of a skin I have been able to do that with, which did not have such a drastic difference in brows and facial hair to the blond hair.

Mrs. Raynier is going to be like, what the heck is goin’ on with my Cajun!  Who this blond dude?  Well cherie, it’s Cooper and he’s a rugged mix of city and country, bad boy and shy guy, he’s got a great body and facial features and a great new skin for the gents to try on over at this round of FAIR!

A few more things I really love about this skin, the nose is really well done, it has great definition and realism.  The very light dusting of stubble on the head made it easy to go blond or black and the lips are a nice full form with great coloring.  Too often we see skins with a chapped lip look, it’s very unappealing to me and this is not the case with Cooper.  Additionally, check out the pecs!  Head on over to FAIR (hosted by CHIC Management) opens on Saturday, November 17th at 4pm!

Just a note, I did not engage shadows or edit the images other than put them in this frame so you can see the raw shots of how the skin looks.  I used lighting from Strawberry Singh, Original, other wind-light settings may look different.  A good go to is CalWL, and of course always demo the skin so that you can see how it actually looks on you.  Have a great weekend!

FAIR Preview-A Good Time

At 4pm SLT FAIR, a new CHIC Management event will open its doors!  The event will focus on a theme of time, each designer being inspired by one of the 24 hours in a day.  After September the event will open on the 3rd Saturday of each month.Each month we will try to include clothing, poses, mens products, skins, hair, furnishings, jewelry and hopefully one day shoes too, so that there is a broad range of product types.

HIISpose brings HISbath-time to FAIR, a versatile, rustic tub with built in poses.  It’s just right for when those late nights in the city turn to morning.

One of my favorite designers, Cheeky Pea has the most detailed and perfect old style T.V. available for FAIR.  :CP: Earnst TV is classic vintage, with animated screen and the most detailed electrical plug I have ever seen!  You can purchase this beauty at 4pm SLT at FAIR.  Keep an eye on the CHIC Management official site for the event SLURL and additional information.

Have a fantastic Saturday night!

I Love You More Today Than Yesterday Part 2.

One of the great things about SecondLife is that you can have a date that you put on pause.  Sometimes, there is just a need to halt what you are doing, and with SecondLife you can easily resume your plans where real life makes that a bit harder.  Nothing beats real life, but hands down time spent together, no matter where it is, that’s priceless.

Gabriella and I resumed our Saturday date, finally getting into the ARCADE Gacha Event!  Right away when we arrived, we had a plan.  Start on the right and go clockwise back to the entrance.

Yay! We BOTH Made It In At The Same Time!

Right away Mrs. Raynier was lucky!  She often will hear me groan and pout about a gacha that I just can not seem to get the RARE for, and after 268 tries I finally give up.  Well Gabby will waltz up to the machine and on her first try get the RARE! And I thought my name meant luck.  It is a win win because she always gives me the prize and a kiss, it doesn’t get any better than that.

I really really want the rare, Pookie! But I tried 38490821 times already and it won’t give it up!

After emptying our pockets and her bra of our monies, we headed outside to enjoy the ocean air and cool afternoon.  We found this great old school photo booth and of course had to take pictures.

Say Camembert!

Overall it was a great time together which we both needed.  Life gets busy, but the need to be close and spend time with our loved ones doesn’t always understand that.  Do your best to make time to spend together, with a friend, your significant other, family, even if its just a half hour, it’ll do you good!

When The Wife’s Away

Mrs. Raynier and I have had a very busy schedule the past 2 weeks.  The kind of weeks that make you forget which day of the week it is and miss each other like crazy.  Making time to spend together is paramount and to make that more possible, I tend to things while Gabriella is busy so that when she returns I am finished with anything that might take me away from spending time with her.

Today was one of those days, where the laundry had piled up so high I had to name it Mount Stinky!  While ma cherie amour Gabriella was off running errands, I decided to tackle Mount Stinky and get our house tidied up.

Chores are not fun, but a necessity that when you let them go, become even more annoying.  I tend to be the type who procrastinates the chores I dislike most and leave those for last.  After washing all the stinky clothes, the next step was ironing.  I have ironed my clothing since it was safe to do so at a very young age.  I went through a phase were I even ironed my socks.  But no matter what age I have been during my ironing moments, I have always thought the ironing board definitely had to be a cousin to surf boards.  So I hopped on ours and as I can often do, got distracted with my silly antics.  A half hour later I had to kick my butt back on track and get to the ironing!

There was so much that I am sure I am suffering carpel tunnel now and if my back doesnt stop hurting I’ll be in the tub all afternoon.  But the task was finally done, and one less thing to keep me from spending quality time with Mrs. Raynier.

You can snatch up the great ironing board and props from LISP during the ARCADE Gacha Event opening to the public on September 15th!  Thank you Pandora for making chores fun!
