Butterflies Are Free to Fly

Check out these new releases from Bueno and Addams for Kustom9! I snagged these wonderfully textured jeans from Addams after the ones I bought from Monso at TMD left me feeling extremely underwhelmed. Normally, I love the pieces that creator Morphine Janick produces, but I am sad to admit that while the HUD included with them are great for different types of footwear, the overall shape and texture left much to be desired. Fortunately, I was able to get these new skinny jeans, along with fitted crop top from Bueno, both of which have fitted mesh options for the Maitreya body. Yay!

Also new this week are these Echium heels from Glamistry. Matching sunglasses are also available, though I didn’t include them this time, but they are adorable! I am really beginning to enjoy the matching duo of classy heels and couture shades and you can grab these, the latest, at Kustom9 as well.

Last, but not least, new hair from Catwa! I wasn’t sure how I would end up showing off this great new style, and finally decided on a more casual daytime look. ‘WokeUp’ features loose strands of long hair, pulled just over the shoulder in a sweet butterfly clip. A HUD is included to change the texture of the clip and what’s more- a new group gift a the Catwa mainstore offers additional butterfly clips that you can add to this style, or others.

I picked up this adorable vintage outfit from Foxes at the newest round of Collabor88 and fell in love with the idea of playing in the sun and surf with Petey, in a scene cut straight from my favorite movie, ‘The Notebook.’ This newest release introduces high waist shorts and bustier style tops in a variety of colors and vintage patterns, perfect for those carefree summer days!

Okay, so I finally caved. I love mesh heads in SL and though I tried the first round of those from LeLutka and was suitably unimpressed by the style of the heads, I have to admit that the second batch was more geared to my style of avatar. After some debate, I decided on Stella, whom I felt had a more fresh and playful look to her, as opposed to the others. I like the curvature of the chin and jaw much more, the definition and the flirty set to the lips and the presence of- lo’ and behold, cheekbones! Nevertheless, I am having a lot of fun playing with the HUD, which offers so much more in the way of options and at a seriously smaller price tag than that of the Mesh Project.

Also new this week are skirts and cropped tops from ColdLogic, gorgeous and modifiable belts from Molichino and an expansive mesh pose prop from Exposeur for the 3rd Birthday Round of faMESHed.

The Lake House

Tags

I was honored to receive an invite for a VIP preview of the newest reBourne build. The ‘Lake House’ will be released Saturday, May 9th at 10:00am, and I guarantee that you’ll want to be waiting in line to check it out. The build is simply stunning and melds the perfect combination of modern cabin retreat and luxurious waterfront escape.

Designed with plenty of windows and glass for lots of natural light, as well as rich oak wood and light stone facets, the Lake House is an ideal combination for anyone looking to have the best of both worlds. It has three floors- including five spacious rooms, kitchen, bathroom, garage, attic and three outdoor entertaining spaces. Did I also mention there is an infinity pool, barbecue space and a built-in boat house? This build really does have it all.

The house comes in skybox form, with a control panel to set scenes and sounds, as well as a ground version. All landscaping is also included! The land impact counts for this mesh build are as follows:

Skybox Version: 352 LI (Structure 252/Skybox 4/Landscaping & Decoration 100)
Ground Version: 349 LI (Structure 252/Landscaping & Decoration 100)

Overall, I am in love with this house. It has something for everyone and lots of space for friends to come over and hang out. As someone who loves to play around with wind-light, I try and avoid baked shadows, but those incorporated into this build are so well done, that I could hardly tell the difference and in fact, they helped the colors of the build really pop. I also love the earth tones used- teal, green and the natural colors of wood and stone. I definitely see myself finally choosing a house and using this build on my still empty sim.

I’ve decided to do a bit of a dark themed post, inspired by the new round of Oneword, in all of it’s dark and twisty glory. You can find this pose by Mien poses and lots of other neat stuff here. The event runs from May 1st until May 15th!

Also new is this ‘Aura’ hairstyle by Catwa! An edgy bob with a long side-sweep of hair that teases your shoulders. I paired it with a darker color for a fierce look, or you can make it simple and sweet by going lighter for ultimate versatility.

Fresh for Summer

So, even though I’ve been out with an awful cold or some such thing for a few days now, my blogging heart was having some majoy shopping withdrawals. So, I sneaked on in and managed to grab a few great new pieces from the Kustom9 and Shiny Shabby events for one of my favorite, and classic boho inspired looks.

This new hair from Tableau Vivant is also right up my alley, with long, luscious locks in a flowing style. The original version comes with a texture changeable scarf, but I managed to modify it in exchange for a pretty flower crown instead.

The weather here has been insane, already in the 90s! I hope the rest of you are as ready for summer!
