Skin Fair 2014


Hey guys! So Skin Fair 2014 is getting near, and these are my top 3 fav picks from this year’s round!

Glance’s Aina by Ava Grau is simply stunning! The lips are perfect and the brows are just snatched.

This skin gives a sort of angelic look with the doe like eyes.

Nena Janus’ Erin from League in my opinion has a sultry, vixen type look. The lips are nice and plump which makes them VERY kissable!

Last, but certainly not least, is Umazuma Metaluna’s Quiana from The Skinnery.

The nose on this skin is everything. It’s not too big, or too small which makes it perfect for the other features this skin displays.

Plus I have a soft spot for button noses!

I hope you guys enjoy my picks for this year’s Skin Fair!

Uh Huh, Honey




Rio runs across the airport, luggage in hand.

There’s Linx! The two sisters embrace tightly since it’s been six months

since they last saw each other. Rio was in the jungles of Peru…

finding herself. Arm and arm, Linx and Rio walk out of the crowded

airport to their parked car. Linx says, “I hope you ain’t bring no diseases back!”.

Rio replies, “Girl no, I got my shots! I’m just glad you didn’t fire me this time!”.
