Bello!

Bello!

Though the month of July has been super busy for me, I promise you guys that I am not MIA! In fact, things should be clearing up for me soon and I’ll be back in full posting mode shortly!

In the meantime, I was able to see the Minion Movie (since I adore them just a little) and I loved it, and so I knew that I couldn’t not create a minion inspired outfit to show my love. So, I went all fan girl and rifled through my inventory for some old favorites, as well as new hair by Truth for a take on the center part hairstyle of Dave (my favorite little guy) and this new Bianca top by Tee*fy for Mix that came in this gorgeous yellow color and perfectly depicts the sunny shade of the minions.

Speaking of which, I only just discovered Mix recently and for those of you who aren’t familiar with it- it’s a HUD based shopping experience with an all-star cast of designers who feature either a new release, an exclusive release or a discounted item at their mainstore. You then wear the HUD, which has an easy to read color code, outlining where each store’s offering is categorized for that month. Mix starts on the 1st of each month, lasts the entire month and has no set theme, which means there is sure to be something for everyone.

You can buy the HUD on the marketplace here, or join the inworld group, which will send out a notice every 1st and 15th of the month containing the HUD.

I finally decided to take a picture in the living room of my nearly finished house. Finished pictures will be coming… eventually. ;)

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!

Beach Bummin’

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

Beach Stroll

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.

Summer Punch

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.
