52 WOCC - Patina

52 Weeks of Color Challenge – Patina

Decided to start doing the Color Challenge since it seems like a lot of fun! Patina is a hard color to shop for, so like other bloggers - I tried to get a color that was close.

It's a New Year; it's a new Shams!

Happy (belated) New Year!

So after my last post, my Asus decided to die. Well..just the motherboard, and I couldn't find anyone to fix it for me. It was very sad, but now I have a Mac, and after 2ish months of tinkering I'm starting to get the hang of it, and actually like it (sometimes). In celebration of that fact, I threw together this outfit. I'm also going to try to be less lazy about blogging this year. I enjoy it; I'm just a procrastinator.'s to a 2012 of less procrastination!

Merry Samhain -- LOTD

Well hello thar! What's it been like...5 months? I suck.

I've been attempting to learn how to use PS. I have to give major props to anyone that knows how to use PS. After 2 hours and lots of hair pulling and Google-ing, I think I did pretty decent for my first try.

Merry Samhain! <3

Anyways here is a look I threw together for today. Halloween (aka Samhain) is my favorite time of year. I only wish I had as cute of a costume IRL that i do ISL, but I don't. Sad day.

Leaving the Nest

So I log in yesterday to see that my bestie is moving to her own land. Sad day. However, she made it up to me by letting me take some pics of us in some SUPER cute clothing before she started packing.  She showed me this new (to me) store called MichaMi. OMFG this store has so much cute stuff in it i thought I was going to explode! I bought one of everything, seriously.

Saying Farewell

Then we got bored with looking classed up and decided to play around for a bit in the bedroom... ;)

Birthday Slumberparty <3

I'm going to miss my bestie-neighbor, but I am super happy that I'll have a new place to hang out at. /me tps to her house to ask to borrow a cup of sugar. :P

Anyway, that's really all I have to say today! Have a fantastic Sunday, everyone!

Procrastination Blog - LOTD 5/8/11

I really should be working on my finals for class, but I'm a procrastinator so the motivation isn't going to come until the last minute. lol. Take last night for instance...this pic below is of what I did for an hour before bed..ya know..instead of studying.. lol. The picture is completely unedited (except for cropping); this includes the cute little Polaroid frame and tinting.. I got the Kari - Komrad HUD a month or so ago after seeing a few people on Plurk talk about it, and it is very easy to use and totally worth the L$!!

Just hanging out..har har

I love this shirt from Grixdale!! It's so cute, and only 75L right now for Project Themeory. Paired it with some jeans from (love) and boots from Kao and I think I look super cute. :D The skin is Atomic, and you can only get it at Culture Shock..or. if you're in the Atomic VIP group, you can get a few skins from this line for free this month. I has a sad because after the re brand I left the old group. So i'll just have to be content with this one until the line is released. *sighs all sad like*. I really do like the new lips though, and the cute little button nose. I feel adorable, and the eye-makeup is very subtle and doesn't dominate the face (not that her makeups ever do.) I have to have eyeliner though, so i added the -[AddiCt]-Aki Eyeshadow/liner in white to give my eyes a more dramatic look.

Culture Shock luuurrvee

I love shopping for a cause, can't you tell? Culture Shock  lasts until May 22nd, so if you haven't already should! It took me a couple days to get in, but when I finally did I knew it was worth the wait!  The proceeds from the event go to Doctors without Borders  (aka Médecins Sans Frontières) , an amazing organization that provides medical care to people around the world.

More info about Médecins Sans Frontières:

"Médecins Sans Frontières (commonly referred to as ” Doctors Without Borders ” is an independent humanitarian medical aid organisation. We are committed to providing medical aid where it is most needed, regardless of race, religion, politics or gender and also to raising awareness of the plight of the people we help.
In countries where health structures are insufficient or even non-existant, MSF collaborates with authorities such as the Ministry of Health to provide assistance. MSF works in rehabilitation of hospitals and dispensaries, vaccination programmes and water and sanitation projects. MSF also works in remote health care centres, slum areas and provides training of local personnel. All this is done with the objective of rebuilding health structures to acceptable levels.
Your single donation of:
£44.67 could provide a course of PEP treatment to help ensure that a woman who has been raped does not contract HIV/AIDS.

£80.34 could cover the cost of three day’s cholera treatment for a patient.
£134 would pay for a measles vaccination for 1500 children. Protecting them from a disease that kills over 190,000 children each year.
This charity goes into any and all countries who need medical assistance with real trained professional doctors from across the globe. They don’t discriminate or judge, they just help, and thats why I believe them to be a perfect choice for this event." - Chic Management website

Here are my faves (so far, I have to go back again) !

I love love love the shoes from Zeery; this is actually a new *for me* store. They have some REALLY cute stuff but these shoes are uniquely awesome! iPoke is my go-to place for piercings and tattoos. A girl can never have enough of either, and I'm never disappointed when I shop there! As always, Addict is #1 place to shop...i own the whole store ;)
