An outdoorsy LOTD for you today, I headed on over to my favourite location – Neva Sky Villi – for this autumn pic.

Mostly I just wanted to show you guys this new sweater dress from Bueno that’s out now at Kustom9. With it’s form fitting shape, it’s easy to layer with vests or large jackets and works perfectly with leggings, stockings or bare legs. Sweater dresses are always versatile and simple to style in these colder months, so it’s an easy purchase!

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.

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.

Step into Autumn

Step into Autumn

Hihi everyone, I have a few more new things to show you today, all from events again!

So starting at the top is this new hair from Truth that you can pick up at The Seasons Story. I love hair with any kind of add on, hats, hairbands etc, so this is an easy favourite for me. The hat is colour change as you’d expect but also Truth has now moved to a HUD based colour change system for the hair too! This is great news for people who like to try and keep their inventory size in check.

The oversized coat is new from Ison at Collabor88,and as you probably know Ison are one of the few brands that still use the 88L price point regularly, I’m pretty sure he doesn’t make less money by doing that because that feels like such a bargain to me that I’ll buy 2 different colours at the very least, probably more!

Finally the last bit of new are the shoes from JD at The Seasons Story. There are so many options with these that the possibilities are endless, you can choose from the knee high socks, to ankle socks or no socks, with a ton of different sock colours as well as options on the shoes. Well worth checking out!

So that’s me for today, hope everyone enjoys their weekend!

PS. I know this picture looks small, I guess I didn’t have it sized very well after the edit, I’ll be honest, I’m hopeless when it comes to things like that! So make sure you click the image through to Flickr to see it properly!

Hiiiii! I’ve been gone a few days with RL so I just wanted to do a quick, pretty pic today with some things that came out while I was gone.

First a new low ponytail from Truth, I love the casual relaxed style. This dress I’m wearing was out from Miel for Fifty Linden Friday last week, although you can usually find items in the store after. It’s a really sweet peasant style dress, again casual and perfect for me running barefoot round the grid. I added the bolero from Chronokit that came out a couple of weeks ago, it’s such a sweet addition to any outfit and is only 100Ls, seriously such a bargain!

Anyway I hope you’re all keeping good and I’m excited to be back again and catching up!

Collabor88 opened yesterday with a new round and I tell you, I hardly knew where to start. There are so many gorgeous items out this month, lots of great SLink add on shoes and several really pretty dresses.

In the end I decided to show you the latest little number from Baiastice who are in this round as a guest. I don’t know about you but dresses for me are always the hardest to style. Seperate tops and bottoms are easier because you can mix and match, with dresses you really have to accessorize well to wear them differently. The cropped vest I’ve added from Toki Doki is one of my favourite items to do that with, I’ve worn it in blog posts a few times but it fits perfectly over a lot of other mesh items and can help to make an outfit just that little bit different.

Also new at C88 is the Lulu skin from Glam Affair that I’m wearing. Lulu is definitely my new favourite after I picked up several versions at The Arcade and so I was really pleased to see more released in my every day America tone to add to my collection!

My big statement earrings are new from Maxi at C88, they come in 3 different colours and are easy to resize if you’re not that into big earrings, personally, I love ‘em. The last bit of new in this post is the pose from Kirin who are also appearing at Collab as guests!

I’ve used some old hair that was released over the last few weeks in my latest posts, I think a lot of designers are holding out on us since Hair Fair starts soon and I simply can’t wait! It opens on the 13th July and will run for 2 weeks. There is a demo group that you can join in world where the hair demos will be sent out on the 12th, that way you can try hair on at home and be in and out of the fair in no time on the 13th! To join the group just copy and paste this link into local chat secondlife:///app/group/2e30d166-f3e5-e2de-ff72-b3da2d06ded2/about and click! You can find other information regarding Hair Fair on their official website here.

I’m signing out for a couple of days now but you can bet I’m back in time for that!
