Got my heart set on anywhere but here

Got my heart set on anywhere but here

Just a quick LOTD pic for you today, since I wanted to show this amazing new biker jacket from Pixicat. It’s out now at Kustom9 and is a perfect item for the cooler seasons to come. Also recent are these realistic Chelsea boots from Just Design that you can grab both male and female versions of at The Mens Dept.

Also, Neva’s Sky Villi sim is now decorated for autumn and you can bet I’ll be taking a lot of pictures there since it’s absolutely one of my most favourite locations in SL.

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!

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!
