Shake My Way

Shake My Way

I know I don’t usually take two pictures for my posts, but I had to this time because originally I was just going to blog the hair and skin better and then I just loved the whole outfit and wanted to show that too!

So first the skin is the new Candy from Glam Affair that you can find at The Arcade. I had to tweak my shape a little to fit it but I didn’t mind because I love, love it so much! I’m wearing the 03 version here which is my fave but you can bet I stocked up on all the other make ups too, since they’re only 100Ls each!

The hair is the new Seiko style from Lelutka, I love how they manage to add the wisps and flyaway strands without the big alpha halo around the hair, it makes taking pictures editing them so easy because basically you don’t need to do anything!

Shake My Way

The boots I’m wearing are another new item from Deadwool which you can find at The Mens Dept that opened yesterday! The come in both rigged and non rigged versions, obviously I’m wearing the non rigged so that I could resize to fit better, with a few colour options available and only 270Ls! I think that is such a bargain price for something that you can get a lot of wear from over the coming autumn months.

The last bit of new are the poses, you’ve probably heard of Nati Williams who is a fellow blogger and has the cutest, unique style, well, Nati’s pose store Imeka has reopened now that she’s returned to SL and I couldn’t be happier about it! There are 4 new pose packs available as well as a gift pack, so make sure you check out her new, in world location and pick up some pretty new poses.

Who wears short shorts? We wear short shorts!

Just a quick post today coz I wanted to show you these new boy shorts that Drift released this week. They come in 3 different textures, satin, leather and jersey knit with colour change HUDs for multiple options! I love their low slung cheekiness, perfect for a skate along the boardwalk or to slip on over a bikini while you’re sunning it up.

That’s all from me, now this post is as short as my shorts!

Just a quick lotd post with some items I found as I was searching through my never ending pit of an inventory and trying to make it into something that resembles order (it’s neater now but everything is just in one folder called -To Blog- instead of actually where they’re meant to be).

So I found this jacket that’s from Purple Moon, they released it a few months back and I have no idea why I didn’t get around to blogging it but it’s pretty damn fab and perfect for this season, so here it is now! The skirt I picked up 2 weeks ago maybe? It’s by Baiastice and I got it at TDR, and although I haven’t gone to check most places do put their event items in their main stores after so you can likely get this there.

I’ve got a couple of new gacha pieces on as well, the hair from BCC and the stole from Pesca. I love both of these and definitely need more hair with hats please anyone who reads this!

Oh and Ugg boots yaaaaaaay! I was looking for some of these a couple of weeks ago when I did this post, then today I was surfing some blogs and found these ones from Redgrave over on Sugar Planner’s blog so I had to buy them, stat!

Sorry this is a bit of a quick post but it’s Friiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiidaaaaaaaaaay! I’m excited, can you tell?

P.s. WordPress changed something for when you upload pictures and now my sizing is broken or something, so from now on I’ll have to make them way smaller to upload them on here so that they don’t look broken on some of the feeds. If you wanna see them in better quality just click the picture and it’ll take you straight to Flickr. Simple :)

Last week I said I couldn’t take winter seriously yet, since where I live it’s still pretty bright and cheerful most days but when I logged in to SL today for some reason I had an urge to take a winter pic.

This dress from Baiastice at Fair has been blogged a lot already, but as soon as I saw the previews for it on Flickr last week I already knew that I wanted to style it this way, it is amazing though and I’m not tired of looking at it yet, so I hope you’re not either. I guess it’s more of a negligee type dress but the thought of having it paired with a thick, chunky cardigan and some boots appealed to me. I can almost feel the cold silk against my skin and the warmth of the cardigan with it making a delicious contrast.

The cardigan I’m wearing is from a store called Soup by Suppe Koba. I’d never been here or heard of it until Friday. Like a lot of people I don’t get out of my skybox much in world, but when I was doing my rounds for FLF I saw a very cute avie wearing it and she kindly gave me the landmark. I’m gonna include the SLURL this time just because it’s a new to me store and maybe new to you too. It’s mesh and comes in a few different colours, but only 3 sizes. XS, S and M. I’m usually a M in standard sizing and this one fits just perfectly.

I got the scarf I’m wearing at Decoys 50% off sale, I’m not sure of the end date on this but there is 50% off everything in store, so make sure you check it out! It’s not mesh but lately I’ve found that no matter how great rigged mesh scarves are, they don’t always go well with mesh clothing, especially if you’re wearing a mesh top that’s kind of over sized. So I was specifically looking for a non mesh scarf today and this one fitted perfectly.

The final new item I’m wearing is this hair from Truth. Non rigged mesh for easy editing and super pretty, I love it. The braid gives it that little something extra and makes for a style that is easy to dress up or down.

I really wanted a pair of nice mesh ugg style boots to go with this outfit, but I struggled to find any that were a more original design. In RL I love my ugg boots, I live in them from about November to March and I would probably do the same in SL if I could get my hands on them. So if any creators are reading this please, pleeeeeease someone help a girl out! OR how about some glam wellies kinda like the Jimmy Choo / Hunter collab? I need some of these in my SLife!

Till that happens, I’ll keep dreaming.

Time is Ticking

Disclaimer: This blog title has absolutely nothing to do with the picture and everything to do with the fact that I am sooooo short on time today, but damn so much to write about!

First of all I’ll start by saying that when my friend Harper saw me wearing the outfit I blogged yesterday, she called me a….actually I can’t say what she called me because I wanna get this post on to iheartsl.com which is now SFW! If you didn’t know now you do, anyone who was listed to feed must reapply and you can find some info on the SFW guidelines and what to do if your blog has mixed content here on Cajsa’s blog.

So after that incident I decided to go a little cuter today. This mesh hair from Truth was perfect for the look along with the new Granny’s Pearl necklace from LaGyo which you can get from TDR along with matching earrings and both are scripted to texture change.

I’m also wearing another recent release from Emery which is this mesh blazer that comes in a range of different colours. Obviously I went for the natural, nude looking colour because I’m boring like that. The jeans I’m wearing were recent from The Secret Store and they’re pretty amazing. I had a high waist system pair from Imbue that I used to wear a LOT, so I was really happy to be able to get a pair in mesh.

The picture was taken at Neva Dunes, which is the home of Neva Crystall and has been opened to the public for a few days. I believe it’s open until the 4th so make sure you pop over and visit and get your photo ops while you can! I’m a huge fan of Neva’s and it’s great to be able to look around and see her work, I find it really inspirational too. Like now I need to go buy a new house! Here’s the SLURL if you want to go visit.

Oh last thing, I’ve also started to link all my pictures directly to my Flickr, so if you want to see the picture in better quality just click on the pic and open the link, I have to make them smaller so that I don’t mess up any feeds and so the quality is not always what they should be. I’m sure there’s a way to fix this, but I don’t know how – I am really blonde in RL.

That’s all from me this week, I hope everyone enjoys the weekend!

After Hours

There has been a huge amount of amazing releases the last few days, and more still to come over this weekend. It’s fair to say that my L balance has taken a dramatic hit and will continue to do so for the next week, while my inventory is piling up with things to blog!

I put together a couple of my faves from this round of FaMESHed that started today, as well as this skirt that was recently released from Emery. I have to tell you ladies, this skirt makes your ass look amazing! You have to demo it to believe it! I really like this hair style from Exile and it’s non rigged mesh which is good because I had to resize it and reposition it a fair bit. I play with my shape a lot and tweak it here and there, so that could be why, but it’s rare for me to have problems with mesh hair not fitting well, so make sure you demo this too!

Mon Tissu Blogger Search Contest

So last week Mon Tissu announced that they were going to hold a competition to find a new blogger. I’m not gonna lie, it kind of felt like I died a little bit when I saw their announcement and my reaction was OMG! Or more accurately, OMGGGGGGGGGGGGG!!!

I don’t really enter competitions in general, not just in SL but in my real life too. I’m sure this everything to do with lack of belief in my abilities, and fear of failure etc etc, I don’t need to see a shrink to figure that out. But this opportunity was more than just a competition, it was a challenge as well. Putting a look together that I loved with Mon Tissu pieces and making a good picture was a challenge and I decided that as long as I was proud of whatever I came up with in the end, that was what mattered. Which is why I’m sharing it here as well!

If you’ve not heard about the Mon Tissu contest you can find information on it here and all my credits in this picture can be found on my entry on Flick here.

Hope you like it and good luck to all who enter!

Some Days

Some days, you don’t want to get up. You don’t want to get up, or get dressed, or fix your hair. But you force yourself to at least put on those comfy pants and that oversized cardigan and pull your hair back into some semblance of a style and you sit. You sit and wish that the world would stop turning and it feels like it should, because how can you go on after this? If it would all just stop, then it wouldn’t have happened and you wouldn’t have to face it. But it doesn’t, it has and you do.

I was wearing most of this outfit for a few days, partly because it was system layers and I wanted to be in those for demoing at Vintage Fair but mostly because I just felt like it. Then Toki Doki released this Apathetic Cardigan and it was just perfect to go with. I love the cable knit texture and the colours it’s available in are all soft and comfortable. I don’t know if you can describe a colour as comfortable but I just did. This cardigan is a must buy for those every day looks.

On a side note, I believe that the Toki Doki group is now back open for people to join. There is a 250L joining fee but Maya has already put out a group gift a couple of days ago. If you’re not in it, make sure you join so that you don’t miss out!

Maybe tomorrow I’ll feel like getting dressed.

FLF 27/07

Just a quickie because I wanted to show you some of the items on this weeks Fifty Linden Friday! There was sooo much good stuff this week, including goodies from Lisp and What Next but I’m just showing some of the clothes. There’s a few more hours for you to go grab them!

First this cute dress from Tulip. It’s mesh, it’s simple and also comes in a peachy shade. I <3 it.

The hair flower is from LaGyo – can’t get enough of this shop lately. Lots of good stuff coming from them for events and showcases like FLF and TDR. Make sure you check them out!

Finally this necklace…it wasn’t actually in FLF, but Miel didn’t have their item out when I went (or when I went back later…this annoys me.) so I hit their subscribo and got this necklace with matching earrings as a group gift!

I love this mesh hair too, you can find it from Clawtooth at Hair Fair which CLOSES TOMORROW! :(

So make sure you snatch up these great items while you still can!

Just Like Me

Here’s another little LOTD for you that I put together with the new bits out at July’s round of C88 and a recent release from Toki Doki.

I wore this hair in a recent post but it’s just so cute that I haven’t taken it off for a few days now. I have to admit I’d never bought a D!va hair until they came to C88, but I’ve loved both the latest styles they released. The textures have a messy fly away look that not many in SL do and it gives them a unique natural look and as we know I love natural.

This necklace from LaGyo at C88 is a fantastic accessory. After the release of their Alice necklace at Fairytales I didn’t think I’d find another necklace so quickly that I couldn’t take off, but LaGyo proved me wrong with this one. It has texture change stones and flowers so you can match it to just about any outfit.

Also new is this Eri skirt from Toki Doki. It’s mesh and comes in a wide variety of colours and a few different patterns too. I’m really enjoying the Toki Doki mesh range and their prices are really reasonable. I mentioned before that it was worth joining their update group for a small fee which is now 250Ls. This is still well worth the investment! Group gifts are rotated very regularly (usually every 2-3 weeks from what I’ve noticed) and it’s usually one of their recent releases in aa unreleased colour. Also do check out the weekend specials at Toki Doki as again it’s usually one of the recent releases but in an unreleased colour and sold for a discount price.

Oh and a quick mention, have you been to Leverocci’s anniversary sale yet? Up to 75% off most items! I picked these shoes up there recently plus a whole bunch of other stuff for really cheap, definitely worth a visit!

P.S. Yes, I know I take far too many pictures at Neva River, but I can’t help it! It’s just got so many pretty different areas!
