No goodbyes, just hello


I began blogging in 2009, and in that time I wrote for this exact blog. I never got to say goodbye when I stopped in 2011, for reasons unimportant, so maybe this is a goodbye for both times, as yes - I am leaving SMW today. Brigitte will fill you in soon as there is more info to come, but for now I just truly felt that I needed to put my voice out here.

Callie's Picks No.39 - Rock On + COMP


Click on "Read More" to see comp!

Earlier today Callie surprised us with an awesome edition of her store, entitled "Rock On" offering heavy metal and rock/biker style inspired clothes. There are plenty of starcoin items and prices range from 4 to 30 stardollars. Honestly I really like this release, I could cross a few things off my wishlist like the chains backpack, the squirrel tee (IT'S SO CUTE) and the boyfriend leather jacket. How about you? Any must haves you've spotted?

DESIGN WARS - THE FINAL ROUND


Apologies for the incredible delay, I must say I was in trouble with the prizes of this comp. I was hoping that Jenna would return sometime, but now that all of her accounts are deactivated, I want to finish off a few things on my own - including the results of the Pink for October challenge and Halloween Couture comp.

Design Wars ended up being a mess because lots of people left or changed their minds during the half year (!!!) this comp lasted. Here are the contestants who have made it to the 5th and final round:

HB Embellished Prep Sweater poll


Poll is open until April 12 (Sunday)

Vote for your top 3 favorites!

Please no asking for votes or cheating. Polls are for blog members only.

Spoilers


A whole bunch of new spoilers were revealed today, thanks to Maria-0077 for the picture. There are various items, but majority consists of windblown gowns from all kinds of designers. We're not sure what this could be yet, some say it's new JetSet, while others predict new floors of the Royalty store. Well, I can say that it's not supposed to be limited since the beginning of this week was still for Subcouture (it's so sad that basically every week we get a kind of limited store...)

Feel free to help me look for the real versions!

We finally have a new floor of Original Future! I personally love this one,
they opted for less colourful pieces and a lot of cut-out details.

Easter on Stardoll


Hop hop hurray! Stardoll prepared a lot of surprises for Easter this year. We'll be able to win stuff on egg hunts, get gifts from the gift-o-meter and take part in special competitions. Catholic Easter is this Sunday, April 5th and Ortodox Easter is on April 12th. Doesn't matter if you celebrate any of them or you don't, you can still take part in the fun.

The Price is Right: HB Edition - Dotted Spring Dress

The last Hot Buy of the month has been released! Here are the results for this Hot Buy...

Spring Strawberry Milkshake Makeup Tutorial!


Hello dolls, Nimka here, and I'm finally making another makeup tutorial for you after a busy Stardoll week! Not so long ago, the season finally changed from chilly winter to Spring, the season of pastel colours, growing flowers, new beauty and the beginning of the sunny days. This is why, instead of doing runway inspired makeup I have decided to do my own version of spring look titled 'Strawberry Milkshake' so we can say a big farewell to winter. Let's start!

New Floors of Yacht Club


Two new floor of Yacht Club arrive to Starplaza. Collection is named Bahamas break, and it's beach themed. Prices range from 4 to 40 stardollars. Four items are starcoin items (the castle, the turtle, flying fish and candle). Two items are superstar only (ice bucket and bad with towel) and one royalty only (fireworks). Collection includes two interiors, day and night. 
IMPORTNANT: You can purchase items from this collection, even if you don't have Yacht suite.

Making your perfect room


There can't be better time for decorating your room on Stardoll, unless you spent all your money on Young Hollywood and Wild Candy. Even in that case, 75% sale in Bling Bling and Glamour is the opportunity you just have to take. With over 100 items on sale and prices ranging from 1 to 8 stardollars and under 30 starcoins, designing suites has never been cheaper. Add some freebies and items you already had and you'll get a cheap and pretty room. Just in case you're still unsure on how to do it, here are a few basic tips.
