Summer’s End

I live at 9,000 feet in RL (which is about 2700 meters for those not in the US). Here fall comes early. We had a first tree start showing signs of changing in late July, and now there are quite a few aspens with yellow leaves. I love fall (and am not overly fond of summer) so this makes me really happy.

Because I began changing my sim to fall at the end of July I rented a little beach cottage on one of the Baja Norte sims. They’re really pretty and you don’t have to be a renter to get rezz rights. Just join the group (there is a fee, but I think it’s worth it). Respect that the houses have renters, but other than that the sims are open to explore! It’s a great place to do summery, beachy pics and I may keep mine year-round! It’s a reasonable rate and it’s kind of fun to have an SL “vacation” home, silly as that might sound!

Anyway, when I saw this dress from Neve I knew it would go perfectly with the cute print heels Ingenue released for August’s Collabor88 (they should be in the Mainstore soon, if they aren’t yet). I chose the ice cream cone ones (because, hello adorable!) and my general goal was to look like the embodiment of ice cream. My Magika hair color is courtesy the group gift Color Melt Palette hud which works with specific newer hair releases. The ice cream cone is from Half-Deer and the pose is Nantra’s. The straw hat is an automatically rezzed prop but you can remove it if you don’t need/want it for some reason. The lemon cushioned chairs from Half-Deer went nicely next to my Dust Bunny ice cream vending machine out on my deck.

Ice Cream Dreams

My closeup better shows off the adorable LAQ Cherry head, which I paired with Pink Fuel’s applier Melody. I am always so happy to see stores release for LAQ heads. They’re my favorite heads to use (LeLutka being my second choice) and while Mallory Cowen’s skins are utterly gorgeous, it’s fun to have more variety and options! Mochi Milena puts a lot of thought into her huds for her appliers and I love using them. They’re easy and fun and you get so many options. Plus, I’ve always felt adorable in Pink Fuel skins! I’m wearing a pair of glasses by Cae on my head. Also by Cae is my cute flamingo necklace.

At Summer's End

Full credits below! I’ll be leaving for vacation on Saturday, but when I get back I have some news to share! I’m pretty excited about it, and hope others will be too!

Summer Fever

I’ve been sick with shingles and so I’m not going to write much… but I wanted to share some things with you all!

I’m wearing lingerie by Gos (a recent Uber release that should be in the Mainstore soon), with gorgeous shoes that match and can be found at FaMESHed through the 27th.

My alt is wearing hair I snagged her at the Wasabi Pills summer sale which ends tomorrow (the 24th) so be sure to head over to grab some gorgeous hair at a great price!

Summer Fever

We’re both wearing LAQ heads. Mine is a newer release – Sandy – and I’m also wearing eyes Conviction’s Lucent available from Lookbook. I’ve added the SONG Cutie Liptints to my look, which is also a Lookbook release. Lorelai and I are both wearing e.marie nails. Mine are the Lookbook release.

Heaven

I’ve been obsessed with the Julia Michaels song Heaven for the past month or so. It’s dreamy and sexy… and I haven’t been able to get it out of my head! So I decided to do a blog post inspired by the chorus lyrics:

No need to imagine
‘Cause I know it’s true
They say “all good boys go to heaven”
But bad boys bring heaven to you

I decided to give my malt a complete makeover… I will be featuring his look in a future post, so stay tuned for that. Then I found a sexy pose at Purple Poses, rezzed a Bueno skybox that was all white (made me think of the whole “heaven” part).

I decided to do a look that combined a bit of innocence with edginess, and I achieved that using LAQ’s Poppy head, which is utterly adorable with leather pants by Gos and a sexy denim and lace top from Just Because!

Bad boys bring heaven to you

I also wanted to do a pic alone, to better show off the leather pants and sexy top, and my cute Sabina sandals from Ingenue, which are currently at Collabor88.

Music makers

And, check out LAQ’s new glam lashes. Plus, I wanted to show off my Spring eyeshadow appliers from Izzie’s. These are part of Lookbook, a new HUD based shopping event, dedicated to cosmetics/eyes/skins. You can get the HUD for free on Marketplace and shop from the comfort of your own home! I’m wearing Cae’s Devotion collar, which you can get at ROMP.

More soon… including credits for my malt!

Copper boom!

I know it’s been awhile. RL has been kicking my ass. First I had an unexpected complication from the surgery I had in March (which you’re welcome to read about here, on my personal blog). My thyroid got completely out of whack and if you’ve ever had issues with your thyroid you know the many ways this will affect you. Basically, a normal TSH (thyroid stimulating hormone) level is under 4.5… mine was 26. Yeah, it’s not good. I go back to have it rechecked in a couple of weeks, but it’s meant I’ve been exhausted, scattered (thyroid problems make concentration harder, add that to ADD and fibro fog and it’s not pretty) and overall, I just feel kind of… meh. I get moody when my thyroid’s fucked up and moodiness isn’t a normal state for me so I hate when I feel this way. It feels like my emotions belong to a stranger and it makes me feel raw and exposed.

Anyway, as if that wasn’t enough, my 86 year-old grandfather’s health took a turn for the worse in the past month. He’s been fading for awhile thanks to dementia… but the last couple of weeks especially have been horrible. He’s now under hospice care at home and I am both dreading his death and hoping it won’t be long now. I don’t want him to have to live this way, stripped of his dignity and independence. I am 1800 miles away and had hoped to see him in June (it was a bit up-in-the-air) but even if I get back east I no longer expect him to be there, except in memories.

I cope by doing one of four things: reading, listening to music, playing games with my husband or rewatching Gilmore Girls (which, tbh, I’m pretty much always doing). Copper boom! is a so-called Gilmorism from Season 4 of the series. It is a mishearing that becomes a thing they say that means “hurry up!” I’ve been feeling a need to hurry up, even as I’ve struggled to do so, and therefore it seemed appropriate to use the custom hud for the adorable Blueberry Lila sweatshirt tied around my waist (worn with matching jeans) to reflect my feelings. I grabbed my alt, who is appropriately currently named Lorelai, to pose with me using a pose by Infiniti. My adorable sneakers are from Ingenue. I fell in love with a pic of similar RL shoes and sent it to the lovely Betty Doyle who – much to my delight – made a version of them in SL!

Copper Boom

I’m wearing a top from Vinyl that reflects the coffee loving Gilmore Girls… to be honest, I’m not much for coffee myself unless it’s from Starbucks and has been seriously flavored somehow. I also had to show off one of LAQ’s new faces, Leia. LAQ recently revamped their heads and the way it works now is pretty cool. You can read the full details on their Flickr post, but the short version is that you now buy the heads separately from the HUD and once you have a HUD it will work with any of the heads. This saves you money if you’re someone who enjoys having multiple heads to choose from (and other strange things you don’t say in RL). The HUD has been updated, with new mocap animations.

Leia.

And here’s a headshot of my alt, wearing LAQ’s Ana head. I just love the pouty lips on this head.

Lorelai

Hopefully I will be back to blogging more regularly soon. I’ve definitely missed it.

Skin Fair is almost over!

If you haven’t been to Skin Fair yet, you only have through tomorrow (March 25th) to get there! There are two sims and a lot to see, so give yourself time to visit and check everything out thoroughly. I have two skin appliers from Skin Fair to share in this post.

First up is League’s Alessa LeLutka applier, which I am wearing on Greer. This skin is absolutely stunning. I am always so happy to see a new release from League, and this one didn’t disappoint. You get a variety of makeup choices and mole/freckle options, too. There is a shape available that was designed with the Greer head in mind, so if you have trouble getting your head to look the way you’d like or want to look like the ad, I highly recommend buying it. I used it as a template for my own shape for this applier, though I did make modifications. This is one of two shapes available (the other is for Spencer), and the skin includes 2 applier HUDS, suited for the two different shapes/heads. I played with this applier on a couple of my other LeLutka heads, too. If you don’t wear Spencer or Greer definitely demo, but I think you can make it work for some other LeLutka heads, too.

Alessa

If you miss Skin Fair, this will be released at the Mainstore soon after. You’ll find League on the North Sim (follow the arrow when you land).

Next is one of two new appliers LAQreleased at Skin Fair. I’m wearing Hailey, which is super cute. It suited my “Channeling Jan Brady (Jan was my favorite Brady)” look, which was inspired by this super cute Exile hair (now at the Mainstore). My adorable glasses are from Cae and you’ll find them at The Clique, an event inspired by one of my all time favorite movies, The Breakfast Club.

Adorkable

You’ll find LAQ on the South Sim of Skin Fair (again, follow the arrow when you land). If you miss Skin Fair, look for Hailey to be released at the Mainstore soon!

As part of my “Channeling Jan” look I wore this adorable little dress from Neve, with the seriously cute Lea flats Ingenue currently has out at Collabor88. The backdrop I’m using is by Serenity Style and is at the current round of The Liaison Collaborative, which is celebrating its 5th anniversary! They grow up so fast!

Santa’s Helper

Exile has created the cutest little dress that is perfect for being a holiday elf or Mrs. Claus herself. There’s also a hair designed to fit perfectly under its fuzzy hood! The dress is called Santa Baby and comes in 3 color packs. The hair is called Weekender and comes in all of Exile’s usual colors. You’ll find both in the Mainstore. I thought the look was perfect for helping to sell trees on the tree farm by hive I picked up from Tannenbaum. My gorgeous tree is from Half-Deer and you can find it at Collabor88. There are so many colors and styles (I am using the Traditional here), and if you love Christmas as much as I do, I highly recommend the fatpack for L$788. It’s a great deal. My adorable shoes are Ingenue for The Arcade. I also want to point out my reindeer, as he’s from a new store called Mad Match. Right now they only have a Marketplace store, but there are some really cute things and it’s definitely worth checking out.

Santa's helper

I am wearing one of LAQ’s recent bento head releases, Scarlet. I love this head. It’s sweet and doll-like. I’m wearing it with the Lola Glam Affair skin applier designed for it that you can find at Kustom 9.

Scarlet & Emerald

While I’m talking about LAQ, I want to mention that the newest head Neve is on sale for just L$500 through Christmas Eve! So if you need to give a last minute gift or need a new head for yourself or an alt, this is a great opportunity to grab a gorgeous head for an unreal price. I intend to blog that one in the next week or two but I really wanted to make sure to mention it before the sale ended!

To all of you celebrating, I wish you a very Merry Christmas, full of love, goodies and lots of happy memories!

Love,
Lucie

Autumn Brunch

Dust Bunny did a gorgeous brunch gacha set for The Epiphany. I have a bit of an obsession with SL food (I even have a flickr group for it). I just think it adds another layer of realism to SL. My cute, cozy sweater is from Neve and you can grab it at Uber.

Brunch

I’m wearing the adorable Olivia heels by Ingenue with my cute pleated, plaid skirt that is also from Neve at Uber. I love this sassy bobbed hair that is a new Exile release at the Mainstore. My cute prop pose is a collab between Cubic Cherry and Elephante Poses and you’ll find it at Rewind. The theme for this round is the 40s and there’s lots of awesome glam and cute retro items to be had so be sure to check it out before it ends on November 28th.
