Blueberry has this stunning Mykonos lingerie gacha for The Arcade. There are lots of options to win, and I particularly liked the rare robe. I’ve been playing around with my various Catwa heads lately, and I realized I’d never blogged Amy yet. I found a skin applier (Daria) at Insol that I simply adore on this head. There’s something so sweet but sexy about this face. The wide eyes, the pouty mouth. And I love it with the freckles, but you get both freckles and non-freckled versions.
I wanted a scene that felt indulgent and lush, and the natatorium at Blithe was perfect for that.
My hair is also an Arcade release, from Exile. As usual, there are two styles in the Exile gacha. Both are dramatic, very over-the-top and tons of fun, but I particularly love the windblown, messy, just had a tumble in bed look of this one, which is called Hot. And man, is it ever!

I am posting this much later than I’d hoped to… had some technical issues earlier with my internet sucking. BUT you do still have a bit four hours left to Hair Fair 2016, so you’re not too late to go grab some of the amazing releases, gifts and your very own Bandana Day bandana. Mine was created by the sweet and talented Izzie Button. Isn’t it adorable? Remember, the people who take the time to do these bandanas are giving their time and proceeds entirely to Wigs For Kids. It’s truly a great cause, and something I am always honored to participate in as a blogger. My necklace is coming to FaMESHed tomorrow and is by Cae. My Catwa mesh head Destiny and DeeTaleZ applier Patricia will both available at the Mesh Body Addicts Fair, also starting tomorrow. My lashes are Catwa appliers, which are also from Izzie’s. They were a recent Fifty Linden Friday item, but trust me… they’re worth paying full price for if you missed them!
My cute bikini top is another in Neve’s recently released swimwear collection, and my sexy jean shorts are from Just Because. The adorable collie pup by my side is available at The Epiphany, from Jian. The flip flops are by Reign, and as of this posting they are still only L$75 at the mainstore. Finally, I am wearing the newly updated Freya body from Belleza. All of the bodies – Freya, Venus and Isis – have been newly updated. I’m going to link to some YouTube videos created by the Belleza team below that explains the updates. But there’s also a fabulous post about it on the Mesh Body Addicts website!
Possibly the most exciting thing for many of you will be that you can now buy JUST the body you want. While the fatpack is still available, each body is also being sold individually. Definitely watch the first video if you’re interested in just one body type. It helps to explain it all really well. The new hud is really slick and sleek, and you can get further detail on that in the second video.

The Pulse Fundraiser is winding down. It will close in just under 24 hours, so if you haven’t gone yet, hurry! If you’re not sure what I am talking about, this fundraiser is benefitting the families and victims of the horrific incident that took place last month at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando. There are a ton of fabulous designers participating, not to mention auction boards where you can bid on some fabulous people and/or prizes.
I wanted to do something sparkly, cheerful and dreamy. So I went to StoryBrooke Gardens and, just by chance, found this giant book. And the quote on the page… “hope springs eternal.” It just seemed perfect. I’m the odd mix of realist and idealist. I often say I’m a realistic idealist. I want to believe change is possible, that things can be different. That the world, as ugly as it can be, is also still full of so much that is beautiful and good. And when I see the SL community come together for an event like this, it’s just that much easier for me to hold on to that hope.
I’m wearing a lot of items you can find at the event. My hair is from Exile, the dress is Valentina E. The body glitter and bracelet are both Izzie’s. My shoes are Reign. The adorable star “freckles” are Vile Cult.
In this pic, you can better see the cute star tattoos, along with the beautiful applier Glam Affair released for Uber. Although this applier was designed with Annie in mind, I am wearing it with Alice here… and I think it’s pretty adorable!
Definitely be sure to run over to the Pulse Fundraiser before it ends. It’s worth it! You get to support a great cause while buying beautiful things. Or bidding on beautiful prizes/people!
PS. I apologize if there are any typos in here I missed. It’s now 2:30 am and I’m sleepy. 😛

I really wanted a t-shirt type dress because of Thomas Rhett’s song T-shirt. I mentioned that to Annie Melson, the talented creator behind Just Because and she liked the idea enough to do it! It’s called the Zoe T-Shirt Dress and it’s really freakin’ cute, as you’ll see below. I paired it with the special edition Harper clogs fri.day released for the Pulse Fundraiser. If you haven’t heard about this yet, it’s a great event to raise money to help the victims from the horrific shooting that took place in Orlando last month. Some really amazing designers have come together to donate their talent to help raise money. On top of that, there are auction boards… but more about that in just a minute. I wandered over to Blithe and found this really awesome scene. It was sort of dark and moody and sexy and it suited my mood and my outfit perfectly, I felt. I hopped up on the pool table, and while this table (from Apple Fall) does have built in poses, I decided to use a recent release from Infiniti for the pic instead.
My adorable hair is from Truth and it includes a version with a cat ears headband that’s just cute as hell. You can find it at The Fantasy Collective’s special After Dark round through July 15th. I’m wearing one of Catwa’s more recent mesh head releases, Helena. I love this face so much, and DeeTaleZ created an applier for it that is so beautiful it’s actually why I bought the head! The applier is called Fable. I have a LOT of mesh heads and appliers at this point, but this is probably my favorite combination yet. My necklace is from Cae’s current FaMESHed release, and it’s really lovely. I decided to mix up the metals and am wearing a combo of silver and rose gold. There’s also a choker that has gems and earrings available to go with this.
Okay, so now about the Pulse auction boards. There are a bunch of talented creators and photographers, along with some date boards… you can win some time with someone or win some amazing prizes. Like Blueberry fatpacks for life. It’s definitely worth checking out. Yours truly even has a board, and if you bid on me and win you’ll get early access to Whimsical, before it’s open to the public for a lag free shopping experience. I’ll also do your profile picture, and give you L$2500 in store credit at Repose, the pose store I co-own with my husband. And Sanura Snowpaw, who owns Somnia, generously added L$2500 in store credit to my board. It’s all for a good cause… 100% of the proceeds go to the fund set up by Equality Florida. So even if you don’t bid on me, consider checking out the boards and bidding on someone else!
And now, I’ll leave you with this…

Summer is so close now! At least for those of us in the Northern Hemisphere. And summer – to me – means vacations, road trips, ice cream, beaches (even though it’s been years since I’ve gone to one!). It also means I can wear my flip flops, which I love. Because, you see, in RL I hate shoes. HATE them. Socks, too. But I love how they look… just not how they feel. So I’m happy to indulge my would-be shoe obsession in SL instead. When I put together this outfit, I knew it needed some strappy sandals, and I found the perfect pair at Glamistry… along with some fun, flirty, vintage feeling sunglasses! My top was released in the Mainstore of Just Because and the skirt is from the latest set of releases by Neve.
I love when shoe fatpacks are hud based, so that you can change the colors of individual parts. That’s the case with these Columbine sandals from Glamistry. Also, how could I NOT own these, when columbines are the state flower of Colorado, the beautiful state I get to call home.
I titled the above picture C’mon get strappy, which is a play on C’mon get happy… and a horrible pun that I did in honor of my brother Benton (I owed him one). But how fabulous is it that with the fatpack I could make the shoes multiple colors to match my skirt and top?
The hair I wore in the full body pic is from Exile, and it’s a brand new release for Summerfest, which has just opened. I spent a small fortune at Summerfest, so I’m sure to have more blog posts featuring items from it before long. But definitely check it out… it’s an event I always look forward to each year.

I did this pic before I left for vacation, and called it “Spring Stroll.” But it’s almost summer now, and even here at 9,000 feet in Colorado, it feels like it! We finally have leaves on our aspens and wildflowers are blooming… and it’s really lovely.
In Second Life, I found a lovely spring scene at Blithe, and decided that this top from Just Because suited my mood. It’s summery but also very boho, and I looooove all the boho stuff that’s come out lately. Plus, hello boobs! It’s super sexy! The skirt is from Blueberry and the sandals are fri.day. True story… I hate shoes in RL, but I kind of wish I had these sandals in RL. That’s saying something!
My hair is from Exile at The Arcade, one of two styles you can win. My adorable corgi companion is also at The Arcade, from Jian. The stunning necklace I have on is from Cae, and I promise to get a closer shot of this one because it has a star and I love stars. But in the meantime, you can check it out yourself at FaMESHed.
Happy Friday everyone!

This look was built around a pair of high heels that I just completely fell head over… well, you can see where that bad pun would lead, so I’ll spare you (which I am sure will break my brother Benton’s heart). They’re the Crocus heels from Glamistry, and what got me was the shine and then the side detail of three princess cut diamonds (hey, it’s SL – I can have diamonds instead of rhinestones or CZ). But here’s a close up of the shoes, so you can see for yourself.
Aren’t they awesome? Okay, so once I had them on I decided on a recent release from Neve called Jazzy. I went with the tropics version. My hair is Mango, brand new from Tableau Vivant and available at Kustom 9.
I decided to do a bit of heterochromia with this look. It’s not something I do on a regular basis, and to be perfectly honest, I didn’t plan it. I was trying to decide what color eyes I wanted, and had one brown and one green on and it just worked for me. I’m also wearing Cae’s Flutter ring, which is a free gift available at FaMESHed. Her regular release for the event is a gorgeous matching necklace. It’s their anniversary round and a lot of designers have gifts out. You have to join the FaMESHed group, but it’s free and definitely worth it! I’m also wearing the brand new FATElashes from Damien Fate. These have already been updated to include even more textures. Strawberry Singh did an amazing post, complete with a video, about these lashes. Definitely check them – and Berry’s useful post – out. I have a hard time adjusting lashes, but I was able to adjust them to work with LeLutka’s Stella head with minimal hassle.
Oh, and all of these pics were shot at It all starts with a smile, the beautiful sim from the lovely Kaelyn Alecto. Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
