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!

Fall Backwards

Fall Backwards

I’m back from my holiday to RL and I feel like I’ve missed so much! I’ll be catching up for days so I thought I’d start today by showing you some new things from Avenue Fashion Week which kicked off yesterday!

Both of the coats I’m wearing are new releases from NYU for this event, the black one on the left has the white under shirt attached to it, so there’s no need for you to try and fuss with layering mesh, while the poncho trench is a great twist on a classic style.

Both of the hairs I’m wearing were new releases from Truth this weekend, and I have to say I think that my little Coral twins look so utterly adorable in them that I wanna pinch my own pixel cheeks.

Avenue’s Fashion Week is a great event if you like to uncover new designers. There are of course lots of great established brands, but it also features a huge range of less well known creators and a really varied selection of styles. As well as a great shopping opportunity there are lots of fashion shows going on, which can be great fun to attend with your friends. As the name suggests the event is only open for one week, so make sure you check it out!

Introducing Sonam from Jalwa

Introducing Sonam from Jalwa

Most people know that Chandra Masala is the creator behind Bilo, well now Chandra has created a new brand for her skin range called Jalwa and her first release under this brand name is the Sonam skin. These skins are only available on the marketplace for the moment, you can find them here, and I definitely recommend trying them out!

Now I’m one of those people who will wear the same skin and/or brand for months and months. Even though I like to mix up the style of my outfits, skins are a tough one for me because if it’s too different from what I’m used to then it doesn’t feel like “me”. Having said that, taking and editing so many pictures of myself can take it’s toll and there are many days I’ll just feel like “Oh, it’s that face again.”

This Sonam skin would be much too big of a change for me personally to make it my every day skin, but will I mix it up for taking pictures and blogging? Most definitely! I love the tones on these skins, there are other brands in world that I keep trying out but always end up feeling like they have too much red in them or are too desaturated so that they look greyish. In my opinion, Chandra nailed it with the skin tones.

The above picture was obviously edited for the sake of making pretty, since that’s my favourite part of blogging, and I’m wearing layers for freckles etc. But here’s some snaps of the au natural variety so that you can see a couple of tones, it actually has 5 tones but I couldn’t do all of them today because time is short for me on a Friday!

Sonam Tones

The blonde and red eyebrows are quite dark, that won’t be a problem for me personally, I’ve mentioned before that I always like darker brows never mind what colour hair I’m wearing, but I know some people do prefer the fairer look when they’re going for blonde or red. I think that the body could do with a little more work on the texturing but the face seems spot on to me and I wasn’t a fan of the cleavage option, I felt like it needed some more shading or something (idk, I’m not a skin maker but it needed something), then again I can’t remember the last time I wore a cleavage version so that won’t stop me from wearing them.

The skins also have the matching appliers for the SLink mesh hands and feet which are amaaaaazing! I really do like this first release and love the face. The progress Chandra has made in her work is incredible to me, I can’t wait to see more Jalwa releases in the future!

Anyway that’s me done for the week, I’ll be back soooooon,

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 post today since I’m short on time, you can tell by how creative I’ve been with my title here!

ANYWAY, I mostly wanted to just show you this pretty new top from The Secret Store! The roses are not just textured but also part of the mesh which gives it a really realistic 3D effect. There’s a few different colours available but today I decided to be pretty in pink and added this cute, relaxed ponytail that Truth released last weekend.

I’m wearing a recent release from Maxi Gossamer as well which is this Forget Me Not Heart necklace. Just in case you didn’t know you can now order Maxi’s jewellery in real life as well! There is more information about it on her blog here and she’s just posted some pictures of the real jewellery after it’s been oxidised and I have to say the results are stunning. I wish all the best to Maxi with this venture and if you love her designs don’t forget to check it out so you can wear them for real!

New from LaRoo!

New from LaRoo!

Last week I blogged about the new mesh footwear store LaRoo that would be opening soon. They were due to open on the 7th but some setbacks saw that date delayed, but now, they’re finally open! You can find LaRoo on the Fresco sim, located opposite FaMESHed. I went over and checked it out and it’s a lovely mesh build, great for taking pictures.

LaRoo have 2 new items out for their opening and my favourites are these Clyde boots. They come in lots of different colours and the studs give them that extra something. They’re non rigged mesh so you can resize as needed. The only thing I’d have liked is if they came with both gold and silver studs, since I pretty much always pick gold over silver, but I can’t have it all so I just wore them in gold instead!

I’m also wearing this new mesh top from The Secret Store at C88. It’s so pretty and well made and the gold accents easily make it a new favourite for me. At only 88Ls I’m definitely gonna be going back for 2nds, and 3rds and ok, maybe I’ll just get all the colours!

Tea For Two

Ok so technically it’s hot chocolate not tea, but hot chocolate for two doesn’t have quite the same ring to it. I was just sitting here in world like this, in my new apartment with my new furniture so I thought I’d snap a quick picture. Although now the more I look at it the more it kind of depresses me and Mr Bear doesn’t seem too impressed either.

Poppins in Paris

First of all, I would like to say that this picture has absolutely nothing to do with Mary Poppins. A couple of weeks ago Harper joked that I should be her nanny, and then Coral Poppins was born. It was meant to be my display name for a week but it’s lingering….sighs…so ok, I did think that this outfit had a bit of a Parisian feel about it, and I took the picture at the Cupcake sim so it fitted.

Also (sorry about this waffling) I know it’s a bit of a summery/spring look and I’m seeing tons of beautiful autumn and now winter themed pictures popping up on other blogs and Flickr, but where I live in RL it’s still bright and sunny, a little bit of a chill in the air but a light cardigan or jacket is all you need and you can still sit outside and enjoy a meal. So I just can’t take winter seriously right now.

The top is by The Secret Store and is out for sale at FaMeshed, or if you follow Lazy Sunday you could’ve picked it up for 70Ls at their store a couple of days ago. It’s completely cute and tucked to fit well with high waisted mesh items.

The skirt is an old group gift from Fanatik. However, you CAN still get your hands on it. This skirt and one of their mesh dresses is on display at the mainstore, all you need to do is join the group for 100Ls to get them both!

I’m wearing the new Cyanne mesh hair from Truth as well. Accessorising can really make a difference to a look or an outfit, and this hair makes it that little bit easier with the scarf already attached. There is a colour change HUD for the scarf so you can easily mix and match it with different outfits. I wish more hair styles came with accessories like this and I’m looking forward to seeing what others come up this season.

Hope everyone is enjoying their week so far!

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!

Stroll Through Autumn

There were some great new releases over the last few days so I thought I’d put some of them together for my autumn look today.

This mesh sweater from The Secret Store is just about perfect. It comes in a couple of different plain colours or with a pattern as well. I decided to go for plain so that I could mix and match it easier and I think I’m gonna get a lot of wear out of this top this season. It’s an item that you can easily style different, bare legs and boots or leggings or jeans, so many different options. I decided to put it together with the G Field floral leggings/tights because I’ve been admiring them for a while.

I’ve also got on these new mesh boots from Glam Affair. Again this is an item that I’ll wear a lot and they can easily be dressed up or down and, they’re unisex! I can’t wait to see what styles some of the guys can come up with wearing these.

I’ve also got a few accessories on from The Arcade Gacha event and this only has a couple more weeks to run so make sure you get over there and grab them before it’s too late!

I took this picture at Izzie’s mainstore which is all done up for autumn and perfect if you want to capture a shot filled with those warm orange and yellow hues.

Hope you all have a good weekend, I’ll see you on (C88) Monday!
