I love it when the 8th falls on a Monday, it gives me a reason to actually look forward to the start of the week since that is of course when C88 opens it’s doors.

This month’s theme, Miami Electric, is a bright, bold one, with lots of 90s throwbacks. Including this high ponytail, complete with texture change scrunchie, from Lelutka. Lamb also released a similar style and I admit that I got a fair bit more excited than a woman my age probably should, over a scrunchie.

One of my favourite items though, was this cage top from Baiastice. I do tend to get dressed up a lot in world so I already know that I’m gonna be pairing this with shorts, skirts and pants till my heart’s content. It does show a lot of skin so if you end up feeling a bit naked (like I did) then something like Ison’s bolero is a great addition.

I decided to wear these runner shorts from Emery, which were released last week at FaMESHed, since they are another of my favourite releases over the past few days. Classic and sexy, with bold prints and bright trims, they go perfectly with items out at C88.

I wanted to keep accessories simple, since the top is the eye catcher on my torso, so I didn’t add any jewellery but I am using this great clutch bag that LaGyo released, as well as a pink bubblegum add on. Both are out today at C88.

Hope everyone has a good start to their week and happy shopping!

She’s Like A Samba

She's Like A Samba

The lovely LouLou Teichmann asked me to hop in a picture with her a couple of days, which of course I did very gladly! She was kind enough to let me snap this shot on the beautiful set she had created using furniture from 8F8.

Summerfest closes in a couple of days so now’s the time to grab over and pick up any pieces you still wanted, like this monokini from Baiastice or the oh so summery Soleil hair, with hat, from Tableau Vivant. I love the style of this swimsuit, it’s the first one of it’s kind I’ve really seen on the grid so far, and because it’s different from a standard 2 piece you are guaranteed to stand out on the beach. I’ve mentioned before that I’m a lover of hairs with hats and accessories already attached, the Soleil is no different. It comes with a HUD so you can change colours of the hat, band and flower that are attached, so it’s easy to match with any outfit.

The statement necklace that LouLou is wearing is a new piece from LaGyo at C88. I love the selection from them this round and I’ve already got another picture I’m prepping with them too. Big, bold jewellery is always a win for me!

We’re also both wearing the new Kallisto skin from Glam Affair that is out at C88 in both Asia and a new Exotic tone. I’ve been wearing the Coral skin every day since it was released a couple of months ago, and of course I don’t wanna change it buuuuut….I love my face in Kallisto. The lips are so damn juicy I could kiss my own pixels. Hopefully I’ll find the time to squeeze in a close up to show you guys better, but believe me it’s well worth going and trying on.

So don’t forget to pay a visit to Summerfest, and C88 if you can get in, and click here to see LouLou’s version of the pic!

So this is a picture of me, on a rock, in a bikini, with some flamingos. I just sort of had fun with this picture and the pink windlight, flamingos always make me feel frivolous for some reason!

The flamingos from Ohmai at Summerfest were the inspiration for this pic, along with the palm headband from LaGyo. LaGyo just released a huuuge summer collection of unique and fun accessories, at their main store, all with a “nymph” theme. This is just one part of the Dryad Nymphs collection, the flowers on the band come in lots of different colours and it’s a great tropical, eye catcher.

A couple more recent items from Summerfest are the Ria skin from Belleza, the Summerwind hair from Tableau Vivant and the Freedom bikini from Baiastice. Ria is one of my favourite Belleza skins, so seeing the pretty summer make ups for it made my day, and I love the subtle “sunburn” layer that’s included to give your face a nice pink glow. I have nothing but love for the Tableau Vivant hairs out at this event, very natural, beachy styles which are my favourites. There’s also a version of the Summerwind hair with a hat included, called Soleil, which I confess to wearing for several days in a row! I have no doubt it’ll pop up in one of my pictures soon.

Make sure you visit Summerfest as it’s not open for long, and check out LaGyo’s new collection!

Quick LOTD today, featuring the new Petra outfit from Baiastice that you can pick up at Rhapsody! Just in case you didn’t know, Rhapsody opened on the weekend and is a music themed event with lots of different genres. There’s definitely something for everyone.

I played a lot with colours in this picture, which is not something I tend to do as you probably know by now that I favour neutral tones in my wardrobe. I even made the shorts a brighter yellow than how they actually appear in world, just because that is the look I wanted for this pic. So make sure you check them out in world and demo before you buy!

Alright yes I’m wearing the same shorts and sunglasses as I was in my last picture, but you know what, I don’t even care coz I love them so. I’ve been wandering the grid in them for days so they just stayed on!

Mostly I wanted to share with you the Summer II skin from Glam Affair, which you can pick up at Collabor88 for a reduced price. Lots of summery make up options and 3 glowing skin tones to chose from, she’s a must this season if you’re gonna get your beach on.

I adore this beach tousled hair from Milk too, you can find it at The Chapter Four in the 2 for 1 section, along with a cute pig tail style. Last bit of new is this pose from Bauhaus Movement, which you can grab at TLC’s Poser Pavilion.

So I took this picture last week with my friends Kalli and LouLou, it’s always great to work with these girls and they’re both such big inspirations to me. Kalli has already posted her version of this pic and I think LouLou will be soon too, so click on over to their Flickrs up there and check them out!

We styled a big mix up of stuff that’s available at Collabor88 which opened last week. The theme was “To The Lighthouse” but instead of going for a traditional, nautical theme, we went a little more urban pirate.

I love the tiny daisy dukes from Baiastice, there are bright colours as well as denims to grab so they’re perfect for summer. The tie dyed tanks from Maitreya that you can also pick up from C88 were an easy match. Slightly longer tops and short shorts are always a great combo.

LaGyo released 2 great sets of accessories for this round, for pirates and sailors. Obviously we went for the pirate look with the black hats and co-ordinating necklaces. Also check out Yummy’s bargain Aviators, they’re a must have.

Make sure you pay C88 a visit to stock up for summer if you haven’t already!

If Everybody Had An Ocean

If Everybody Had An Ocean

I got a couple more new things to show you guys today, as well as a few recent items that I missed while I was away. I’ve been desperately trying to catch up the past couple of days and you should see the state of my inventory :(

First of all this new denim overall set from Baiastice, which was was out at FaMESHed yesterday. It comes in lots of different colours, including the classic denim I’m wearing. It also has a HUD which you can use to change the colour of the bra/bikini top underneath, or even make it disappear if you want to wear your own top beneath. It’s a really fun and cute outfit that you could style so many ways.

Recent items are this hair from Milk, out at Kustom9 and the platform sandals from Pure Poison. The necklace is at C88 from LaGyo, it was out for Mays’s round so you still have a couple more days to grab this statement piece, if you didn’t already! My bag is a great little summer accessory from Milk Motion at The Arcade.
