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.

Indian Spice

I just had to stop by and snap a couple of pictures at this new artfully decorated sim, inspired by glorious gardens and the bright, bold colors of India. Naturally, I’d be wearing something exotic and fun, like this new Jaya dress from Fishy Strawberry and long braid from Truth. And, it wouldn’t be called Indian if it didn’t have something from Zaara included. Thought this jewelry set is a much older release and is not by any means mesh, it is still one of my favorites and can easily outshine just about any style.

If you haven’t stopped by this sim yet, I highly recommend it. Grab yourself an ice cream at the entrance, then meander through the colorful garden path and down to a magical lane of fountains and beautiful architecture. This is definitely a place you’d want to visit if you’re looking to take some pretty pictures, or just to hang out with that special someone.

Green With Envy

If you’ve seen my Flickr stream lately, you’d see how enamored I am of this sim, “The Vineyard at Checkmate.” Not only have I been haunting the place lately, hanging out and snapping pictures, but I’ve also really been digging the lush green of colors of spring and true Italian charm that it brings. Though I did lag a bit in certain areas, I have to say that this is one of my new favorite sims, and if you haven’t noticed yet, I’ve already found my favorite spot!

New this week are some great pieces at some of my favorite events. The Roxy tank I am wearing from Erratic has a great cut out pattern in the shape of a skull on the back (not shown) and pairs perfectly with these new cargo pants from a designer (Addams) I am really beginning to love. Also new is this adorable charm necklace from Mynx. Chantel keeps getting better every time I see her stuff and I love the way this locket allows you to select the initials on the outside (via menu) but it also opens to where you can add a picture to the center heart. Hmm, I wonder what picture I should choose…

Lastly, Pose Fair 2015 is FINALLY open! Ruby and Shiloh have been working ridiculously hard and if you haven’t seen samples of some of the amazing poses and stuff out, you ought to check out the Hottie Cooterati blog, or better yet, head to Pose Fair yourself! I’d modeling poses from Dream Print, which is just one of many fabulous creators to be found!

Armenelos

Calas Galadhon has re-opened! For those of you who were frequent visitors to these beautiful sims, Ty and Truck had closed them for a few weeks to update and redesign some aspects. My favorite Grecian inspired sim, Armenelos, no longer exists, but has instead been redesigned with a stunning forest wonderland. It’s gorgeous!

I managed not to break an ankle while exploring in my new heels from Hucci. I am so glad to see that Eboni has joined the bandwagon and started making shoes for all of the mesh bodies out there. I just love her shoe add-ons for SLink and the prices are great. You can grab a single color of these new Gabala pumps for $L295, or pick up the fatpack for an outstandingly low price of just $L695!

Boho Biker Babe

I don’t know about the rest of you, but down here in the South, Spring has already kicked in full force! With temperatures well into the 80s at times (not rubbing it in at all…) it is perfect weather for shorts, tank tops and sandals! I am rocking this new bohemian inspired look with goodies from Uber, as well as a new bouncy and fun ponytail by Catwa for the Biker’s Choice Fair. You can grab this hairstyle and more, plus some awesome gifts from now until the end of the month! Grab your taxi here!

I also hit the SL destination guide in the hopes of finding some new spots I haven’t been to yet, and I was in luck! Leka is a gorgeous forest and water themed sim with bike trails, lots of pretty spring foliage and some really great scenic spots. Definitely a must see!

Pocket Full of Posies

I’ve been wandering around SL for a few days now in this beautiful, frilly new dress from Valentina E. and my new Glamistry heels that match it perfectly and trying to find a place to take pictures.

I happened upon ‘Done Wiv a Twist’ and landmarked it last week, waiting for the opportune moment to come back and snap a few pictures. The pretty pinks and purples of this sim made today the perfect time.

If you haven’t been, ‘Done Wiv a Twist’ is a beautifully decorated half-sim with a dreamy Asian-inspired theme, tons and tons of flowers and a really pretty chinese lantern display that lights up over the water. It kind of reminded me of that scene from Tangled and then I got all weepy, but anyway- it really is a must see place.

Pineapple Express

I’m hanging out at Winter Moon tonight, wearing lots of new goodies from the October Round of faMESHed. This pineapple print jacket from Emery is a huge hit in just the first week that I couldn’t not hop aboard the train and get one for myself. It even pairs perfectly with the new leggings by Mutresse and heels by Liv-Glam, both of which come with full color HUDs for tons of color combinations. You can find the heels at a The Instruments.

I’m also starting to become a huge fan of hair by Nova, of Little Bones. Every where I go, I see some awesome styles by her and I just have to grab them up. You should too, you won’t be disappointed!

Again, fall is in full swing as the trees have turned to shades of yellows and oranges and the nip in the air reminds me that the holidays will soon be upon us. I can’t wait! I love the holiday season. What is your favorite part? I’d love to hear all about it!

Riding into Autumn

I love going back to places I’ve already been and seeing what changes have overcome them, especially now that the fall months are here. I’ve been to Frisland before, admiring the rolling hills and beautiful animals, so now I am back, exploring the lovely changing of leaves, cooler temperatures and that crisp atmosphere that only comes from Fall. A farm theme definitely embodies all of that!

I’m channeling a bit of Michael Jackson, I think, with these new pieces from COCO for faMESHed. These mesh pants, jacket and fedora come in a variety of colors and I just love the addition of the glove. Epic. A perfect match to this ensemble are new shoes by Just Design for the Fifty Shades round of Uber (oohlala!) and what a better way to show them all off, than with some editorial poses by PosESion for Kustom9!

Matoluta Bay

Peter and I went out exploring the new sim, Matoluta Bay the other day, but I decided to come back for a closer look. Sporting Liv-Glam and my L. Warwick wedges, I braved the grassy hills and outran some testy cattle as I explored this new sim.

If you haven’t been to Matoluta Bay yet, it is a really lovely sim and animal santuary. Set with a flowing masterpiece of seasons, the Bay offers visitors a wide range of flora and fauna, fields of sunflowers and beautifully landscaped fields. It is brought to you by Shine Landscaping and helps to promote in the preservation of the Spanish Colonial horse, which can also be found in several locations around the sim.

Overall, Matoluta Bay is a great place for exploring, photography, roleplaying or just spending some quiet moments with a significant other in one of the many special spots.

Barbie & Ken

As a little girl, I loved playing with my Barbie dolls. Dressing them up, brushing their hair and oh- the accessories! Now, what are our avatars but virtual Barbie’s, right? I was giddy over the fact that Peter let me dress him up as Ken to my adult version of Barbie, with lots and lots of pink and the inspiration for it all, this loose tank from Le Primitif and (barbie pink) peeptoes from Co57!

Afterwards, we had so much fun walking along the pretty boardwalk at Silver Lake, riding the ferris wheel, munching on cotton candy and nachos (I told him to get his own!) and enjoying the pretty sunset out over the water.

I’d love to see your versions of this famous childhood couple, or even just the fashionista herself!
