...but if you try sometime, you just might find you get whatcha need.
I'm so totally crushing on Hank Moody/David Duchovny right now having just watched the last in the season of Californication, that it kinda flowed into my blog posts title. Apols!! :D
A summer look today featuring some goodies from the new ranges at TokiDoki and glow studio, and this hair avec HUUUGE hat from Amacci, just because I love hats, and this ones a corker!

So, I'll admit....Reek isn't the first place I think of when I want to go shoe shopping, and although the Papercut Cardigan and Autumn boots are a staple part of my Sunday chillaxin' outfit, I still mainly think of Reek when I want to buy someone a birthday pressie, or just generally harass them with cute funky gift (Dinosaur Pyjamas for the win!!). But, what a big mistake on my part...
Today I'm featuring the newest footwear release from Reek, these F-awesome (yeah, thats not a real word) Boston Boots! The boots are totally customisable, via a HUD in which you can change any part of the boot (leather/rubber colour, tongue, laces, eyelets, socks...). They can also be worn with or without socks. If you're super speedy you might even still be able to grab the Navy blue version of these boots which were included in the 50L Friday list this week! A total bargain! Or just grab the fatpack and give yourself a metric gazillion choices of boot, via one HUD :o
I should also mention, that all the background furniture/pose prop I am using is from Awesome Blossom, who also have a 'Spruce up your Space' event offer on at the moment in the form of a cute lil house, which I am going to try and blog in the next couple of days.

There are some real steals in the 50L Friday list this week! Well worth checking out, even if you usually don't bother. I'm always excited when certain stores appear on the list, and this week has really come up trumps, with Kyoot being top of my personal list, but also f-awesome items from Reek (omgboots), and Tiny Bird (cute Romper in 2 colour choices) being a couple of the others.
I'm not usually one for showing my midriff in SL because I don't in RL, which it occured to me is kinda ridiculous. SL is the perfect place to let it all hang out, right?! Ok, well maybe not -all-, at least not on the blog :-D
I've been listening to alot of Angus and Julia Stone lately, so I've added a bit of that at the bottom <3

Quick pic today, because a couple of new ventures are keeping me busy. But hopefully, some exciting new things to come in the next week or so, to keep my blog addiction going.
Today I just had to blog about these super cute shorts from a brand that I discovered recently thanks to the dear Loli and Paris after they featured some tights from this brand on their blog. Whats total win about these shorts is not only the cute flowery spring like pattern but they're also high waisted.
Jolie has a marketplace store choc-full of vintage goodness, at great prices! I'd really recommend a visit and I absolutely intend to blog more of Kaetel's fabulous designs in the near future!
I'm also wearing one of the cute new necklaces from Undefined Lilies...a brand that I totally love, and now has a new mainstore location HERE.

...If The Secret Store don't stop releasing new cuteness that I heart so hard, that I must blog it, then I'm going to have to change the name of my blog ><
I asked Maylee earlier if she'd named her new Frou Frou skirts after one of my favourite bands, but of course Frou Frou also means 'Ruffle' in the French language, so it turns out I was completely wrong! Duh.
Anyhoo...these cute ruffley skirts have given me a chance to blog some other items I've had in my inventory and wear often, but have never blogged. Namely the Loire knit shrug from Mon Tissu and this beautiful jewellery from Je Suis, which is colour change and can be textured to fit with almost anything.
Some more newness today, with these shoes from Vive9's Spring release, and yet more new hairstyles from Elikatira.

I've been in a bit of an emo mood the last couple of days. Bedding down in a hoodie, black nail varnish and listening to waaaay too much Smiths, Cure and Bright Eyes. It seems like this look might have been born of that ;-)

I am the slackest slackster blogger today :-) I took this picture yesterday, then the new League skin was released, so I've just spent the day staring at myself in the demo <3
Anyhoo, down to business....tomorrow (19th March) sees the start of the Albero Kawaii Hunt, which runs until 2nd April.
This adorable Dandelion pose prop is just one of the prizes that will be available to avid hunt fans who take part! It's named Dandy and is made by Milli Santos of No Strings Attached!
I'm also wearing this supercute dress which is new from Elate! and named Brooke. I intend to photograph it again and blog it properly in the coming days ;-)

The Pacific Crisis Fundraiser event is now open! Today I am wearing Glam Affair's contribution to the event (other than the land the event is hosted on)...this gorgeous Sakura Skin. The Cute plushie in this picture, is also from the event courtesy of MiaMai, and has a hug pose inbuilt, even though I am not using it here.
Get your linden wallets out and visit the sim, to bag yourself some special goodies of which the proceeds will go to the American Red Cross, or simply to donate at the boxes at the landing point!
Make a Difference.

Today I'm featuring some items from a new brand, namely Fleshtone. The brand is a joint venture from Gisele Mubble of Lurani and Stevenzuuh Gossipgirl, of House of Fox, a killer collaboration. It's a little different from my normal style, but I'm loving the change! The beige version of the stole I am wearing, is available as a subscribo gift too!
The location of my post today, serves as a reminder to get involved in any way you can, to help make a difference in the lives of those in Japan who were affected by the terrifying events of last weeks Earthquake and Tsunami.
You can help by purchasing a Relief Teddy Bear from LL and 100% of the proceeds will go to The American Red Cross. Or keep up to date with mine, or countless other blogs who will blog details of the planned Pacific Crisis Fundraiser which will go live shortly.
I don't know about you, but I can't even imagine what it must be like to have your daily life, home, or even loved ones wiped away from you in a heartbeat...so do what you can :-)

Every girl needs a little help to get through her weekend housework, right? ;-) Ok, well maybe more than a little.
When I showed her one of the pictures for this, my dear roomie Vittoria asked if I'd been ODing on Mad Men...but I think it's this haircut which is soon to be released by Mr Sebastien Aries of SHAG for Chic Limited whose new collection is out later today...I put this hair on on and everything just got a little....out of control :D

There are so many blogs about the Pure Juice event that's currently going on, so I thought the clothing angle was well and truly covered.
