Even The Summer Ends

Even Summer Has To End

Hope everyone is having a great start to their week, I have to say that I most definitely am after getting a preview of the Belleza mesh body! I’m pictured here with Kalli, both wearing the new Venus body, which will be available soon at Belleza.

We’ve been getting teasers of this body since May, and I feel like I’ve waited a life time for it. I’ve never owned mesh body parts besides hands and feet before. I never had a phat azz, or a pair of lola’s coz I never felt they were natural enough shapes. When the Wowmeh body was released, I read a couple of blog reviews and while they were generally good, there were still a lot of flaws and I never really felt like that would be the answer to the mesh body situation. There was The Shops mesh project, freebie body, but again I never felt like that was going to be what I wanted – besides the fact that I don’t like to shop there anyway. The SLink physique of course was the next big step for mesh bodies, however after I watched a friend demo it, I was left disappointed. I felt like it just had too boyish a figure for my taste. So I sat and waited patiently for Belleza.

Well I don’t feel disappointed let me tell ya. This body is everything I wanted it to be and more. It has curves and is still customiseable with a simple edit appearance, thanks to the fitted mesh system.
One of it’s best features is the fact that you can change your hand gestures and foot height with the simple click of the HUD. It is SLink compatible so if you’re attached to those hands and feet you can wear them, but of course if you wear the Belleza version, you’ll be absolutely seamless.

I know I said last week that I don’t take many NSFW pictures but I legit cannot stop staring at my boobs. Ask any of my friends in SL and they’ll tell you that if we’re standing around styling outfits, my avatar is the only one always wearing bra and panties. WELL NOT ANY MORE! I love boobs, I do. I really love them, and these are just amazing. I have a feeling that I’ll be looking for any reason to show them off for the next few weeks!

As yet there is no exact release date for the Belleza Venus body, there have been rumours that it could be this coming Wednesday but this has not been officially confirmed. I know that the Belleza team are working hard to make sure that the item is as close to perfect as can be, before it’s release, so please be patient! It’ll be worth the wait.

Stuck On The Wrong Side Of Heaven

Stuck On The Wrong Side Of Heaven

I really don’t do a lot of topless or nude pics but today I had to make an exception for this new under bust corset from Just Design. It’s out now at We <3 RP, comes with a detachable bag and several texture change options on the HUD for all the different panels (as well as mix and match colour change if you buy the fatpack). I've been holding out to blog it a few days coz it's also made to fit the soon to be released, Belleza mesh body and I wanted to try and use it with that, but alas it wasn't to be this time since the body release was delayed. On top of all this though the corset is marked down to 295L for the duration of the event (normal price 395L)! It's great for RP'ers and mainstreamers alike, with this soft cotton/denim looking texture.

I'm, not wearing a whole lot else I know lol, but you can also pick up this armour necklace from Ane at We <3 RP too. The skin and hair are new releases from Glam Affair and Tableau Vivant at C88. I'm equally in love with both. The Artemis skin I haven't taken off in a month now, so it was great to see some new make ups for that, and I love, love the Europa tone. This hair is just my number 1 right now, especially in Teal, I've been rocking it around the grid for a few days. Finally the earrings are a new release from Yummy at C88 too, I love big, fun pieces like this so I'll get a lot of use from these.

That’s all from me today, gonna actually head back to C88 and do some more shopping I think!

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!

Autumn Days When The Grass Is Jewelled

Autumn Days When The Grass Is Jewelled

Is it technically autumn yet? I’m not sure. It’s still definitely summer where I love, but it feels like it should be autumn now.

I’m wearing the new Skye skin from Glam Affair that will be out on the 1st September at The Arcade and she’s a real cutie! The commons come in the Asia tone (my new fave) with the rares in Jamaica and Pearl. Arcade is a great way to grab skins for bargain prices, I usually like to get them all for my alts and being transfer is super handy for that of course.

I added the Juno hair from D!va at C88 and the Lagyo Metis necklace you can also grab there for a few more days, coz with this skin I just could not resist the pretty.

Is everyone looking forward to all the events opening in the next week? I know I am, after being away I really can’t wait to go get my shop on!

And So You’re Back

And So You're Back

You may or may not have noticed my absence over the past 6 weeks or so. I had an extended vacation to RL, which was great, but I’m super glad to be back and getting in a routine again.

I have a lot of things to catch up on but I sort of decided that I’d just go ahead and show you some coming soon stuff first!

This Emily skin from Belleza is going to be out in a few days for Arcade. There are 3 rares and 12 regular skins available, varying tones and make ups. I can tell you that I did not edit the shape of my lips at all in Photoshop, they just look this amazing in world thanks to Shyla’s handy work.

I’m wearing a new hair from Little Bones which is going to be out on the 30th at Swag Fest. There are going to be 5 new releases from Little Bones at this event but this one is one of my faves. A ton of options are included, different sizes as well as the option to change the colour on each half of your hair. I can’t wait to play around with it!

The fancy septum piercing is from LaGyo at August’s round of C88 and you still have a week or so to go grab it!

I hope everyone’s had a great summer, please excuse me if this is all a bit rusty but I’ll be back in the swing of things soon! Don’t forget to click through to Flickr to see the bigger pic ♥

So as you probably know by now Collabor88 has opened up it’s July round with a safari theme. So many great items this round and in particular all the jewellery and accessories that are on offer.

Since there was so much I decided to grab a couple of friends and show off some looks all together. So a big thanks to the lovely Kallisto Destiny and Oakley Foxtrot who were roped in to pose with me!

There’s a lot of credits so I’m just gonna head right to them, but make sure you go visit C88 with a whole pocketful of Ls to treat yourself with!

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!
