Happy Anniversary!

I am in love with this new dress by Harry Hyx of ISON. It is vintage and rustic and lace and everything I love all rolled into one. (And did I mention Lara compatible?) It’s available at the new round of Uber, which closes July 23rd.

Today is also my third anniversary of blogging! I know it’s not really a big deal, but I still can’t believe how fast the time has gone by and how I’ve progressed over the years. I look forward to exploring new things and getting more in depth with my posts in the future.

Goa Party

The June round of the Arcade closes in just a few days time and though I am sad to see it end, I know that I’ll have plenty of great items in my inventory to last me until the next round opens in September.

I can’t think of a better way to end this round and kick off the summer than with a party. A goa party, to be exact- inspired by the new releases from Zaara this round. If you like classic 80s, trance and living the sweet life, this is definitely a set you’ll enjoy.

The Arcade ends June 30th at midnight, so grab your taxi before it’s too late!

I decided to branch out from my go-to skin creators when I happened upon this new release from Lara Hurley. I saw Iza at Summerfest and though I decided against the darker tones offered, I found myself at the mainstore to see what else was available and lo’ and behold, I met Alena. She’s youthful, fresh and is available for the LeLutka Mesh Heads. Even better is this ‘rose pale’ tone, which I find charming and oh so girly. For my first time wearing a Lara Hurley skin, I have to say I am suitably impressed. The textures have the almost porcelain smoothness that I’ve come to love from Aida, but the eyes- oh, the eyes! They have some amazing highlights and shadows and the slight purple glow that Alena has really sets off my favorite green eyes.

Of course, I couldn’t not show off some more of my Summerfest finds, but I also happened upon this new dress from Tee*fy at N21 and as soon as I saw it, I knew it would be mine. In my eagerness, I wound up paying $L230 for the demo, but after contacting Azure over the mis-labeled demo, all was well. Did I mention that she is a sweetheart? <3

Summer is here! Finally!

My favorite SL Summer event- Summerfest, kicked off yet another wonderful round and just as I foresaw, I spent a small fortune on all sorts of new goodies for the season, including hair, swimsuits and these new shorts from Paper Arrow. I love that they come with a hud to change the color and texture of the bikini part, but since it didn’t come with a matching top, I decided to pair it with the one from the new Eunoia bikini from Boom. The bikini isn’t fitted mesh, but it is mesh body friendly with an included re-sizable version that I had no trouble fitting to Lara. As always, it’s always best to try a demo beforehand.

Peter’s been away traveling and I hated the entire month he was gone- including his bad internet connections! Nevertheless, he’s home… finally! So naturally, we shopped ’til we dropped, then ran right to one of our favorite hangout spots to walk along the beach and snap some pictures.

The newest round of Collabor88 features a pallete of bright colors that are perfect for Summer. I’m wearing these adorable shorts and knotted tank from Tee*fy, as well as this windswept styled hair by Tableau Vivant for Kustom9.

I stopped by Celebrities Bay for this shot because of the fun tropical atmosphere of the sim. It’s a great place for pictures and hanging out, as well as a venue to great concerts and tributes bands.

The new corset sets from Pixicat for the Arcade are by far one of my top three favorites this round. The rares both feature color change HUDS to change leather or flower colors and I love that the panties for each of them are completely modifiable. Even better, I hardly had to play with the alpha’s on my mesh body to make it fit perfectly. Can’t ask for much more than that.

I’m also wearing new hair from Olive & Paloma, also from the Arcade. It’s a short, ‘I-just-woke-up’ kind of hairstyle that is also adjustable!

I’ve been up for trying some new stuff lately, like this short, pixie-style hair from Monso for the newest round of faMESHed. Shorter is definitely not my go-to style, but I couldn’t resist the playful and youthful appearance of this look. Tattoos have never really been my thing either, but ever since I entered the world of mesh bodies, I love they way they look and those from White Widow are quickly proving to be some of my favorites. ‘Midnight in Paris’ is available at Shiny Shabby and provides a lovely contrast to my new do.

#IHeartSummerSL Meme

Tags

, , , ,

I <3 Summer. Really, I do! It’s my favorite season. Granted, Summer in the South is pure torture and any sort of longterm outside activity is likely best done in Spring, but nevertheless- for me, Summer takes the cake. Lots of sunshine, days of liesure (for the majority of us who work, just go with it) and the best part of all- the beach!

Although summer doesn’t officially start, date-wise for another three weeks, I wanted to kick off the month of June and the general beginning of summer vacations everywhere with the ‘I Heart Summer’ Meme. While it’s been a popular trend on fashion blogs all over the world, I decided to forgo most of the tradition questions based on RL and incorporate some SL friendly ones.

As we head into the Summer months, I look forward to reading all of your responses, so feel free to comment and/or link back below with your answers. Don’t forget to use the tag #IHeartSummerSL

I <3 Summer SL Meme

1. What is your typical Summer style?
2. What is your favorite Summer color palette?
3. What is your favorite Summer hang out/sim in SL?
4. What is your favorite Summer activity in SL?
5. What one avatar enhancement could you not live without this Summer?
6. Do you have a favorite SL swimsuit?
7. What is your favorite summer accessory to wear?
8. What would be your idea SL Summer vacation?
9. What is your favorite hairstyle for the Summer, specific or look?
10. What is your favorite SL Summer event?

1. What is your typical Summer style? Casual and soft. Light colors. Frills, lace, sheers and anything short. I love playing with boho inspired jewelry as well.

2. What is your favorite Summer color palette? White, cream, coral, turquoise and mint. I really enjoy naturals and warm metal tones for the Summer as well.

3. What is your favorite Summer hang out/sim in SL? Home is obviously going to be my first choice. But, it’s been under perpetual renovation for months now, so in the meantime, Petey and I spend a lot of time at ‘the Vineyard Cafe & Winery.’ It is a beautiful sim and the beach areas there are both vibrant and tranquil. And, there are rez rights!

4. What is your favorite Summer activity in SL? Shopping. Scratch that, that’s all the time. I really enjoy attending live performances. A sweet friend of mine, Samm Qendra is a super talented singer and so I love attending her shows, as well as others’. Lisa Brune is also amazingly talented and always gives a great show.

5. What one avatar enhancement could you not live without this Summer? My first instinct was to say my mesh body, what with swimsuit season hitting and all but honestly, I couldn’t live without my SLink feet. Hands, too, but definitely the feet. In fact, I don’t think I even remember what the default SL feet look like anymore.

6. Do you have a favorite SL swimsuit? I’ve been in love with the Naisha bikini from Zaara since it was released two years ago, but with the new round of Arcade opening, my new love is the Morjim bikini as part of the ‘Goa Party’ collection. I love it. It even has a great HUD to change colors and includes fitted mesh sizes for mesh bodies.

7. What is your favorite summer accessory to wear? Sunglasses, hands down. Not only are they practical, but the right selection can easily make or break an outfit. I have at least a couple dozen pair in my inventory.

8. What would be your idea SL Summer vacation? Snorkeling. I think that would be so cool to have an underwater sim where you can play a mermaid, or just snorkel/dive your way through coral reefs and shipwrecks.

9. What is your favorite hairstyle for the Summer? I don’t have a specific named hairstyle because I enjoy so many, but I love the longer styles for summer, especially wavy tresses and anything that has a bit of a tousled look to it.

10. What is your favorite SL Summer event? This is the hardest to decide because there are so many events that I love, month after month. But, I would have to throw my coins into Summerfest, which pretty much guarantees that I will be broke for a solid month. I literally buy everything beachy or summer related and Summerfest has certainly snatched my L$ for the past couple of years.

The Arcade – June 2015

It’s that time of the year again! The summer round of the Arcade has fell upon us all and with it, a fury of amazing new gachas! I spent some time sitting out in the sun with my new set from Dust Bunny, wearing new and vintage inspired swimsuit and hair from Flowey and Exile.

It took a couple of hours to unbox all of my new goodies and I have a feeling that it’ll be a common trend for the next month.

The Arcade June round is sponsored by Style Kingdom, is filled with loads of fun new keepsakes and opens in just a few short hours! So get ready, get set…
