A Flower Fell In Love With The Sun

A Flower Fell In Love With The Sun...

I’m feeling perky today and I have some more new, pretty things from The Seasons Story that I wanted to share with you.

The new Brandi skin from Glam Affair that was out for Cutie Moon now has some great variations out at The Season’s Story. There are two different tones available, Europa and Frost, and each comes with several different make up options, including some with a delicate floral pattern painted on. I decided to go with one of the classic versions for this pic though, because I wanted to add the dramatic petal lashes, also by Glam Affair, that you can find at this months round of C88.

Other new things from the Seasons Story are this Elsa hair from D!va and this gorgeous headpiece from Aisling, which just fitted the hair and this look perfectly. And these super shiny eyes from Buzzeri.

I hope everyone has had a good start to their week :)

I Think I’ll Miss You Forever

I Think I'll Miss You Forever

Spring is definitely in the air, and the items at recent events are really reflecting that. I love all the nude and light pastel tones that come out in spring, it’s probably one of my favourite colour pallets so I always get excited when I see something similar as one of the monthly themes at C88.

I got together with my bff4life, Harper, to take this pretty shot with a bunch of stuff from Collbor88, and tried to give it something of a vintage feel. The pose we’re using is actually a couples pose from !bang, of course I had to sit on the blue ball coz I was tallest!

Let me start with this amazing hair from Tableau Vivant that I’m wearing. There is never enough wavy or curly hair in SL, in my opinion, so I always get very excited when I see one. There are 2 versions of this hair available at C88, with and without a floral headband attached. Very boho and perfect for spring.

I loved the simple, system layer bandeau tops that Tres Blah released too. Obviously I’m a huge mesh fan but it’s nice now and then to get something like this that you can use for layering, plus as I said a couple of weeks ago, I’m really into cropped tops at the moment.

Skirts and dresses were huge this round at C88. We styled this picture with the nude ones available from Secret Store (on me) and Nylon Outfitters (on Harper). The Secret Store skirt has a really nice HUD feature that has 3 different lace options for the top layer and I’m always a fan of extra options!

The shoes that we are both wearing are a new release from Just Design, out today for The Seasons Story. They come with the mesh socks included, which can also be worn by themselves. If you want to wear the shoes without the socks, then you need to make sure you have the JD MyFeet, as they are made to be add ons for them. As well as the wooden platform and heel, there’s also an option to change the texture to match the shoes and if you get the fatpack then all the colours are interchangeable via the HUD. The fact that you can wear the socks separately and with other shoes too, is a huge bonus. I got these shoes a couple of days ago and I honestly have not taken them off since.

As far as the background goes, the balloon swings are out at C88 by Flowey, and of course they’re animated. Great decor piece or pose prop. The little chicken toy that’s sitting on it is one of several cute, little collectibles from Marmelade at the Fiction and Fables event.

I have so much cute and pretty stuff in my inventory right now that I really need to run and take more pics. So, bye!

Sunshine She’s Here

Sunshine She's Here

Happy Hump Day all! I’ve got quite a few new things that have been released over the past couple of weeks, to show you today. First of all let me start by saying how much I love this combo I’m wearing. I think I’m on my 3rd day of wearing it in world, with slight variations to my hair and shoes. I still don’t see myself taking it off any time soon. So sorry/not sorry to anyone who has to see me in the same outfit for days on end, but I adore it!

So from top to bottom, I’ve got the Harriet hair from Truth that was out last week. I love this style coz it’s not as big as some of his others, the fringe on it too is seriously cute. I’m wearing the bikini top from Surf Co at The Arcade, only a couple more days to try your luck and grab this! It’s not mesh but that makes it great for layering, which I can see myself doing a lot of this spring/summer, since I have a huge thing for high waisted bottoms with cropped tops lately.

The skirt and bag are both out at Collabor88 for March’s round, by Tres Blah and Glam Affair. I’m a huge tote lover in RL and have a habit of collecting them in SL, so this bag was a welcome addition to that. I especially liked that it has a notebook inside, bags with extra touches like that are sorely lacking in SL. It gives an extra touch of realism and I’m hoping more will pop up this season. The skirt is just a perfect staple item, I purchased 4 of them in different patterns, including floral and leather, along with this striped version. I just know I’m gonna wear them to death.

My cute sandals are a recent release from Pure Poison, that you can pick up at their main store. They’re SLink add ons and very reasonably priced, I think I got a fatpack of 4 colours for around 400Ls. Definitely worth grabbing!

Finally my pose is a new release from one of my favourite pose stores, Imeka, who are making an appearance at Kustom9-

I took this picture at the newly reopened Neva Sky Villi, which has been one of my favourite locations for pictures since it opened last year. I’m excited to go back and really explore the new little areas that Neva has put in for spring. If you’ve not visited yet, make sure you do!

Like A Drug I Just Can’t Quit

Like A Drug I Just Can't Quit

Last few days to pick up any items from The Mens Dept! That includes this great, messy hair do by Moon and these amazing eyes from Dead Apples – all of course at reduced prices for the duration of the event, so make sure you grab them quick!

Of course I’m wearing the new Romy skin from Glam Affair that’s out at Skin Fair. It was absolutely one of my favourites, and I haven’t taken it off yet. I love the combinations of make up and brows etc, that’s available, the eyeshadow in this picture is my ultimate fave.

Necklace and glasses are accessories available at C88 by Yummy for the March round. They’re cute, staple items that I’d recommend for everyone.

Lost To The Wind

Lost To The Wind

I only have a couple of new things to show you in this picture, literally just two. Only my hair and socks are new items but honestly I don’t even care because I’m loving this outfit so hard today.

The hair is a long, flowing release from Tableau Vivant that will be available at The Arcade on Saturday. You may have seen some pictures on blogs and Flickr of it already, it comes with adorable soft plushies that can be worn on your head too, but it didn’t quite fit for this picture so I had to leave that at home :(

My other new thing – the socks with suspenders. These are a mesh item that are going to be released tomorrow from JD at TDR Fusion. I believe they will be able to be worn separately as simple bare sock feet, but are also being made to fit with existing Just Design shoes and boots too, as I’m wearing in the pic.

So much going on over the next few days, I’m really excited and having trouble focusing with so much gorgeous new stuff being previewed, but these 2 items just inspired me to put the rest of the outfit together. Writing my wish list for Arcade today and I can’t waaaaait!

Ain’t Nothin’ But A Daydream

Ain't Nothin' But A Daydream

I love the combination of blues, greens and whites/creams at this time of year, pretty sure that’s all to do with the way the seasons change and everything starts to look bright, fresh and new. Somehow it spills over into my styling and pictures too. Anyway I’ve got a couple more new goodies from The Fantasy Collective today and I’m gonna start with the main item which is this dress from Peqe.

I started flailing as soon as I put it on, because I adore it so much. Although I’ve cropped this picture, the dress is maxi, full length and you can see the generous split to the thigh. Not only does it have a plunging neckline but it’s a halter neck, so it’s backless too and gives you a sexy showing of side boob, which is always my personal favourite cut on tops and dresses. Since it’s at The Fantasy Collective the obvious way to style it is to go something in that direction (fantasy) but I saw so many gorgeous pics in that style on Flickr already that I decided to go with something more mainstream to show you how versatile it is.

I added the Tableau Vivant Sabahi hair which is out at the same event too, again it’s themed towards fantasy since that’s the whole idea, but it’s still perfect for mainstream looks too. Plus it comes in a version called Sabra too which is more unisex, so there’s something for the mens!

For accessories I added some hand chains from On A Lark which can be picked up at TFC and come with matching feet chains too (both made to fit SLink attachments) as well as the gorgeous Tallulah Drop necklace from Maxi Gossamer. All topped off with some oversized sunnys and the Audrey hat from Tres Blah at Collaborate, which while technically not a beach hat, I still think looks great.

I think I’m done for this week now, hope everyone enjoys their weekend!

Lay Where You’re Laying

Lay Where You're Laying

Since it’s Valentines Day tomorrow I thought I’d step outside my comfort zone a bit and do something different, which was easy with this new lingerie set that Baiastice just released. There were 4 new sets in total, this was music to my ears coz in my opinion, there is just not enough mesh lingerie out there right on the grid right now. I’d love to see more, so I’m really glad that Baiastice has decided to expand her range.

If you’re planning something for your special someone in SL tomorrow -winkwinknudgenudge- then you definitely should stop by and try these out!

Let’s pretend it’s full on spring already for this picture, k? K. I love this beautiful headpiece from Glam Affair that’s out at Collaborate, it just called for pink and prettiness to me, which is how I ended up with this pic.

I’m wearing the new Sylvia skin from Glam Affair too and I have to say, it’s my absolute new favourite. It’s out now at Collabor88 in the America tone and there’s a new way of buying it. Instead of just purchasing a skin in whatever make up you want, you purchase the base skin and then there are a whole range of optional packs to buy too. The different options like eyebrows, cheeks, lips, noses and eye shadows are all available separately and come on tattoo layers. This gives you a great variety that you can mix and match from, and can create a much more unique look to suit you. The only downside is that we’re of course limited on tattoo layers, thanks to the lab, so you might have to be choosy. For this picture I’m just wearing some of the optional eyebrows and cheeks, since I always wear a freckles and dimples layer and then needed a hair base too.

Also from C88, this gorgeous Alma hair from D!va. Both of the ponytails over my shoulders are optional extras so you can wear one, both or none! It’s a gorgeous hair for close ups, with all the wisps already attached, so no need to fuss in photoshop!

Another recent item is this vintage style necklace from Maxi Gossamer that you can pick up just in time for Valentines Day at this months round of FaMESHed, along with matching earrings.

The first week of the month is always a rush of events opening, so today I’m showing you a couple of new items that came out in the past few days.

First of all from The Mens Dept is the Boston Buddy, cuddle pup from Birdy which is a great prop and pet to carry around the grid. The modelling and texturing is extremely well done, and best of all it doesn’t require feeding! It also comes with a HUD so that you can change the colour of the little sweater that it’s wearing. I’m also wearing the new Metro shoes from JD that you can pick up there too. There’s both a male and female version included, the female ones come with some cute ankle socks attached that have colour change options. They’re a great buy at 250Ls, since both men and women could dress them up or down really easily.

Another new item is this denim shirt from Deadwool which you can pick up at The Chapter Four that opened last week. There are a few different denim shades available, as well as pois (polka dots!) versions. I paired it with some cropped pants for this pic but it looks awesome with a little leather skirt too.

Couple of other new pieces are the cuff from Maxi Gossamer at February’s FaMESHed round, and this Tyr hair from Truth which I think everyone loves coz I’ve seen so many amazing pictures on Flickr with it already. Definitely worth trying out if you’re looking for something different.

Waiting For Spring

Waiting For Spring

Yep. We’re only 2 weeks into January and I totally jumped the gun with this spring themed pic, and you know what? I’m not even sorry! Spring is my absolute favourite season and I’m ready for it to happen like, today.

I wanted to show you guys this new sweater from Deadwool who are participating in C88 as a guest this round. I love the lace detail on the shoulders and the fact that you can wear it with or without the collar. Yep I could’ve worn it with a scarf, some pants and boots to make a more wintery pic, but I love the combination of it paired with shorts and heels. This is a great item that’ll see you through the change of seasons easily.

Also added the new Lamb hair that’s out at C88, and beyond thrilled that they are making regular appearances there now. There can never be enough Lamb hair on the grid in my opinion. Another C88 item are the ritzy beads from Maxi Gossamer. I always buy beaded necklaces whenever I get the chance, even if I don’t need them right there and then, since they’re one of my classic go to accessories, and this knotted version fits in nicely.

Hope everyone is having a great start to their week and don’t worry, I’m sure I have a few more wintery posts in me before I decide it’s spring already!
