Skin Fair Fever! Have you caught it yet? I surely have! So many gorgeous skins across three grids and justtt bliss.
In case you have not noticed, I am a hard core Glam Affair kinda girl. I have much love for a few other brands but Glam is my go to and not just because I am the store manager. Promise. The new skin coming out for Skin Fair is gorgeous gorgeous gorgeous. The name is one I am kind of partial to, ahem, but that is still not way it is my favorite skin ever. For me, it is all about the eyes. Romy has heavy bedroom eyes that dare you to look away. I don't know how Aida is able to put so much soul into a skin but she just does. She works incredibly hard to make sure every single detail is perfect and she never disappoints. Each release I think; how on earth is she getting better? I have no clue but Aida just does. The woman is a true talent and has a keen eye for beauty. Now let me tell you the important parts - the options.
Romy comes much like the last few skins but with quite a bit more options. There is the base skin in the usual available skin tones, which includes the latest tone - Asia. There are 18 eye makeup tattoo layer options which vary greatly in colors and styles, six different eyebrow tattoo options with eight different brow color options. Okay, am I blowing your mind yet? Just wait. Nine different layers of freckles and moles options, a nose pack with five options and wait for it okay. Three packs of lipsticks. Each pack have 10 different options that range in colors from matte to light to super gloss and heavy pigmented color. The lipstick packs are color matched to each skin tone, so be mindful of that when you are purchasing if you switch between skin tones.
Romy will be available at The Skin Fair opening on March 14th, 2014 and trust me - so worth the wait. While you wait though, you know you can visit Collabor88, right? I am wearing the Truth hair (again) and some jewelry from Maxi Gossamer that is just lovely. The next few days I will be combining posts for both Skin Fair and Collabor88 and of course throwing some Arcade Gacha stuff in there too because - SO MUCH GOODNESS!

Kilauan intan berkelip-kelip di langit tinggi
Dan cahaya menari-nari di langit biru
Tidaklah dapat menenangkan perasaanku
Yang merindukan kehadiranmu kasih
The sparkle of diamonds in high heavens, and
The dancing lights on blue skies,
Cannot quell my yearning
for the presence of my Love.
Sometimes, your soul just need a bit of feeding. Before I bore you with my rambles, I’d like to point out that the Desert Couch from Dysfunctional Designs is available until 14th March at The Fantasy Collective. It’s texture change–you can change the base, wood part and the pillows independently of each other. It’s awesome!
After 14th March, you will need to wait at least 3 months before the items can be released at the participating stores…and in some cases, maybe never again! Which means if you want that couch, you will have to wait until May before Dysfunctional Designs can release it instore, so go, go, go to TFC! You can see a preview of available items for this round’s TFC @ Elysium Hynes’s Pinterest.
Ramble time, scamper for the exit now! XD
The lines above are about the only verses I could translate properly from one of my favourite Malay songs. The song is in Malay language in its purest form, set to Arabesque beats and the words are so divinely poetic, more than I could do justice with in English translation. I tried my best not to take away the original meaning and wording, but I may have butchered it somewhat in my effort. Also consider the fact that Malay is not even my first language, and that I haven’t spoken it for ten years now. Yeah, that long!
That shouldn’t stop me from professing my profound love of this language now, should it?
Like most ghazals, it is subtly spiritual in nature: it seems to be about earthly love, but the more you listen to it, the more you realize it may be a metaphor for a higher state of love (i.e God, nature etc). And I may be biased but I do believe that Malay and Indonesian language are one of the more poetic languages in the world. ^_^
Alright. Babble done. You guys can get on with your SLives now, thank you for reading!
I love you all, if I could write a ghazal in English for all of you, I so would. <3
