LL LOTD: Pastels Please



{Reblogged} The below outfits have a theme of pastel pink because I wouldn’t just stick to hot or candy pinks in my colour wheel. It also features my favourite cities such as Tokyo, Paris and Los Angeles.

I have three to share with you all and they were made in January-February;

Couture: I always wanted to look like one of those French girls with their berets and designer coats during winter but gave the above look my own twist. Mixing couture with Lolita, the coat is the most expensive item made by Liska, but so is the necklace by Versace. The shoes and purse are probably my favourite accessories combining my love for sweets into a unique design. Also though I have been to Paris once before, I would love to see the Peninsula hotel, it reminds me of the hotel in the series Miraculous.


Dirty 30: I turned the big 3-0 on the 10th February this year so with my alternate self, I would see it as a big bash with more than one hundred people attending- perks of working in a fashion magazine and having a celebrity boyfriend. The dress is by Renato Balestra and pumps are of course Christian Louboutin. It would be a huge marquee during the evening in Tokyo, my home town. The accessories however are Betsey Johnson, the whole event is fun and something Pinkie Pie would deem worthy.


City Summers: My alternate self lives in Los Angeles because that is where her work is based at, she has her own apartment all very chic and cute and the above LOTD is a casual outfit. The only designer item is the bag by Gucci and I love the badges on the pale pink bolero. The 3 digital hearts known by gamers as how many lives you got left and the Stormtrooper badge of course a nod to me being a Star Wars fangirl. The make-up however are all designer brand either Lancome or Dior.

GifSpam! Number 3

It is not out until next year and we only got a teaser trailer of the film but oh my god!! How to Tame your Dragon 3?! The final one in this beloved tale that I’ve grown to love over the years *cuddles her Toothless plushie*





Mood: Very Positive


Pinkie Pie is back! My happy, go-lucky attitude is back and better than ever and despite the concerns of my own family of what is happening in my personal life, I have chosen to go my own way and tell them to relax.

I am 30 years old and more than capable to handle individual situations, I mean it is all a part of growing up still is it not? Again I’m thankful to my besties Lana, Katie and Aria for being at my side and their never-ending support and appreciating him for being open to talk about absolutely everything.

The bad vibes of the past two months is dissipating and only what is left are content feelings and hopeful thoughts. The past week has been great, though I have a change of shift at work doing the 11am-7pm, I don’t mind doing this shift. I have a 2hr sleep in and the bus I get into work isn’t full of silent city workers but a cheerful, leisure crowd. This also has an affect on my attitude by the time I get into work.

We also have a new girl who started working this week and she is another half Asian like me. She is so sweet and very quick to learn, she’s going to be an amazing addition to our department. Finishing up at 7pm and being home by 8pm isn’t as bad as my parents think it is.

I get home in time for dinner, I’m still doing exercise after I finish work so I’m still not understanding why they don’t like me working this shift. It is not like I am back to a rotating roster, which could have happened if I said no to doing this shift.

Weekend plans are movie night on Saturday here in the city with Mei, we need to see Incredibles 2! That is a definite since we been waiting 14 years for the sequel!

LL LOTD: Style in the Office



{Reblogged} Corporate outfits can be fun depending on your job and how flexible your boss is, for my alternate reality self she works in a high end fashion magazine so she can express herself as an individual while still wearing the designer brands that her magazine promotes.

She tends to wear pink and black a lot more than any other colour being her trademark. As always, sharing three for you this week.

Editor-in-chief’s Assistant: Inspired by the aesthetic and feel of Runway in the movie Devil wears Prada, I was going for something similar with the office and the outfit as well. Top is by Jackie, skirt by Alexander Wang, earrings are Karl Lagerfeld, make up Bobbi Brown and belt is inspired by Christian Dior. My favourite piece in this LOTD are the badges- the ice cream, the Lucky cat and the mermaid shells since I love novelty personally.


Lunch Break: Mixing professional with unique trend and keeping to my own style, this LOTD is another office outfit while going on lunch break. The imaginary magazine is located in Los Angeles and I could see myself venturing into Little Tokyo during my lunch hour then picking up a glazed cruller on the way back to the office. Top is by Rosie Assoulin, sirt by DSquared2 and shoes are Valentino. My favourite accessory featured is definitely the pink keyboard bag, it is very unique.


Back to work: After the holidays and travelling around the fashion capitals, returning to the usual grind in Los Angeles while publishing the memories of the fashion weeks either in New York City or Paris. This is a very feminine LOTD going with her mood of being in a content relationship where is it no longer hiding from the public. Ruffled pink top is by Zerdocean, skirt by Chic Wish, shoes are Kurt Geiger, belt is Saint Laurent and earrings are Dolce & Gabanna.

Diary: My Saga

diary
I love to write stories whether book length or short quips and post them here for you all to read. This is the most obvious statement and when I look at my ten years of being on either IMVU or Second Life, I could happily say my own virtual world could have it’s own memoirs of my time online. I have had my fair share of positive and negative moments whether it was in-character for roleplay or just being me, I have experienced a lot.

Also what is with the case of the exes? Soon as I make a note I am single, they all come flocking back! Except 3 which I’m glad for, but the rest of them? I do not want a boyfriend, this is a new chapter in my life and I wish to focus on me. I want to be at my highest peak of success/career and personal happiness before I even think of dating someone again ohh and while travelling the world to my favourite destinations (Japan, Paris, Disney world…to name a few).

I am still forever grateful to my girls Katie, Lana and Aria for reaching out to me during my times of need and seeking advice, they haven’t been angry or offering vengeance rather they been giving sole advice, hope and ears to listen to my constant, flailing thoughts that are an emotional tumult even now.

Side note: Cutesy girls with child-like faces while totally kinked up needs to go, you don’t see that bs in reality so the whole trend going off on Second Life (not on IMVU thank God!) needs to desist, there is one thing to look “pure” and Lolita inspired but these girls just look like young girls, stop encouraging the pedos to come out of their dank caves!

Featuring my five likes for this very busy week;

  • Family fuelled weekend, aunts from New Zealand are here and spent Friday, Saturday and today with mum’s side.
  • Red Rooster’s cheesy nuggets, these are a cheeky snack and are so nom during cold days
  • My imagination, it’s wide open whether through doing pictures on SL or continuing my Seven realms trilogy.
  • No more tension, it’s been sealed off and clearing out the mental vents and because of it, I’m definitely back to my chirpy self again and people are noticing
  • Golden State Warriors won the season! And the trophy is back in the bay! #Dubnation

LL LOTD: Paris Weekend



{Reblogged} I absolutely loved Paris while I was there last year and because of my love for the tv series Miraculous and working for a French hotel chain, I can’t really escape it. I am still trying to find a Polyvore replacement to create new tiles but so far it’s a bit bleak.

Featuring three outfits below for visiting Paris. I had lots of fun creating these;
Parisian kitty by lucilxlu featuring fake flowers
Parisian Kitty: Time for work for the fashion magazine and it means going to many capital cities to do interviews, find clothing of inspiration, take photos or even stand-in for the editor-in-chief. I absolutely love this outfit! The skirt is by Dolce & Gabanna, those hot boots are by Alexander McQueen and ice-cream wristlet is by Betsey Johnson (of course). It is blending something professional with the pink blazer and making it into something I would call my own. The scarf is directly from Sanrio online store and hair would be pulled into a neat bun, like I said it was fun to create.

Night out by lucilxlu featuring wall home decor
Night out: The celebrity boyfriend and I would go out with friends, whether his fellow stars or my own group and it wouldn’t be all just for work. This outfit is inspired by an all out, star-studded event and taken on Bastille Day. A known holiday to the French and something they celebrate as much as New Years eve. The outfit itself is not really a designer brand, more something I created together to have its own look of individuality. The harness mixed with the pink bustier by H&M and a ruffled, voluminous black skirt with pink lace underneath. The heels however are Christian Louboutin and purse by Yves Saint Laurent.

Feeling French by lucilxlu featuring wall home decor
Feeling French: I actually have pants in this outfit! I know normally my previous outfits have been dresses or skirts but these pink jeans by Hobbs were too cute, I had to style a look around them. It’s something worn in Autumn or beginning of winter, the top is a pullover by Philosophy di Lorenzo Serafini and made out of soft wool. The black embellished heels are by Dolce & Gabanna again and the necklace and bracelet are by Betsey Johnson. Are you all noticing a trend here on who I would pick in my alternate universe closet, if I had the money I would definitely spend it on these designers.

Mood: Still A Mix


My emotions are still a conglomerate of everything but it is more positive than negative so I’m happy to say that. Returning to work today after a pro-active, three days off (thank God we are part of the commonwealth to have a holiday to celebrate the Queen’s birthday though her actual bday is in April).

I saw Ocean’s 8 twice, once with mum, the second time with my bestie Mei. Got to see my grandma (dad’s mum) on Sunday night and been re-reading and typing more of Book 1 for my Seven realms trilogy. I have also been hitting a creative spike in taking creative pictures on Second Life, I am not getting the usual 30-50 favourites as before my 2 week break in February but I don’t mind that, I’ve hit 1.4k followers and that in itself an achievement.

When I do have a mental downer and I start to overthink over everything that has happened the past two months, my logical Aquarian brain barges in and gives me all the positives of each moment and though it may seem empty at times, I’m still getting better. Not for anyone else but just for me and my own self gratification.

Also in regards to my Aquarian brain, the ADHD side is throwing story ideas for what occurs after Book 3 in my trilogy, I had a basket of ideas in my head that I had to write it down inside one of my many notebooks stored in my desk. They might come to writing, they might not but they were bloody good, original notes.

Second Life: Comforts of Home



Three years I have called this cottage home on Second Life and it has been my rosy bubble away from all the wastelands and craziness that ensures from other residents in the virtual universe.

My dining table is always changing, depending on what is released by my favourite creators for events, this picture is last month featuring cutesy food made by Tentacio or Random matter. The ginger and blue birds are from Jian’s main store, during a Fifty linden release.

I even changed the wardrobe that I had from Birdy’s Boudoir to Nomi’s Princess closet that was released for the Gacha Gardens. It is more prim heavy but it had more detail and its pink, of course it had to be part of my bedroom.

Can you believe the above photo was taken outside of my cottage using the books background by Astralia, I love to read in reality and reading books with a cat on my lap, makes it even better. Pose is by Le Poppycock which features the cat on my chest, found at the September round of The Liason Collective.

I have taken a couple of photos featuring my beloved rug in my bedroom over the past two years, I have just changed things surrounding the pouf in the middle. Usually what is on the pink rug reflects my hobbies, one side is make-up, the other side is painting and books. New additions are gaming console, ramen and journals.

I always take picture of my desk but not on the other side of it where I have added more cute decor items from gachas. The Arcade opened again this month and I barely bought anything except the dolls by Garbaggio, my collection is ever expanding. The hen and her chick, lucky cat, pink mailbox are by MishMish, the ginger kitten in a hen outfit is by Parfait, clipboards are Tres Blah, ramen is Random matter.

GifSpam! Save Shadowhunters

It reached world wide tweeting at no.1 and still has over 3 million tweets while also trending no.2 on tumblr, despite the ship wars and toxic attitude of the Shadowhunters fandom, somehow we have come together to save our beloved show. Here is to hoping we more than 2hr season finale next year.
