Now that the weekend crowds have settled a bit, this is an excellent time to check out what is one of my favorite events of the year… yep, Skin Fair 2015 is open! With two sims full of beautiful skins, this is a skin addict’s fantasy come true.
Flounce has three new faces, but my favorite was Sera. I liked the lips, as I felt they were a bit different than many you see in SL. My eyes are another find at Skin Fair. This year there are tattoo creators, makeup creators and yes, even eye creators at Skin Fair. These are from Adored. I am really fussy about eyes. I wore the same brand for years and I wound up really tired of them, so I began the hunt for something different and new. I’ve been wearing Buzzeri ever since, and I do love my Buzz eyes. But I also don’t want to be in a rut, so when I saw these I was intrigued and decided to try them. These definitely pass the Lucie Is Picky About Eyes exam, and I will absolutely be wearing them again. In fact, I’m wearing another pair from the same line in my next pic!
Belleza is among the many more familiar stores to have a new face at this event. Tess has really pouty lips, which I always like. The gorgeous necklace I have on is from Cae for the current Fit For A Princess. Here you also see another pair of the Adored Moon eyes you can find in the Adored boot at Skin Fair. Aren’t they stunning?
The second of these pictures was taken at Harlow Heslop’s absolutely stunning sim Blithe. You can read more about Blithe on Harlow’s blog here. For a small fee you can join the group to have rezz rights, which is absolutely awesome for us bloggers.
I will have more from Skin Fair soon, so stay tuned! In the meantime, for all the details, including maps and slurls, please see this post on the official SKin Fair blog.

So Saturday marked 6 years since I joined SL. It’s been quite the journey, and the past 6 years of my RL have been, at times, very turbulent. So there’s been a comfort in the constant that is SL. And I’ve made some truly amazing friends.
I’ve grieved for friends who have died in RL. I’ve cried over the end of friendships, and celebrated the birth of new ones. I’ve fought and made up with friends. I’ve co-owned two stores with my RL and SL husband, with whom I joined SL back in 2009. I’ve been an event owner, an event creator and an event owner. We own a sim. My first job was as a stripper when I was less than two weeks old, and lasted all of an hour (before Rad realized he was, in fact, jealous, lol). I’ve been a photographer, doing both studio and wedding photos, with plenty of repeat clients. And of course, I’ve been a blogger for the past almost four years, first microblogging on Flickr, and then starting this official blog in 2012. And last year I even bought my own domain. I figured I’d be bored with blogging – or even with SL entirely – by now, but that just hasn’t happened so far.
I’ve lived quite the Second Life so far… and I don’t see myself leaving any time soon. Thank you to all who have been a part of it, and to the friend who let me “borrow” her bedroom for the below picture.
I can honestly say I still love SL… I still find creativity and fun and friendship here. I am grateful and happy to have such an outlet in my life.

Uber is almost over, but you still have until the 25th to go by and grab some apocalyptic themed goods! I have to admit, I’m not usually into the apocalyptic themed stuff, but I was pleasantly surprised to find myself drawn to this round.
This Jack’s Bugout Shelter skybox from Consignment is really awesome… you can buy the skybox and all the furniture and accessories separately, or you can buy the entire set (which is what I did). For L$850 it was too great a deal to pass up! I already had this awesome FATEplay outfit which seemed just a perfect fit to go with my boots from Deadwool. I’m pretty beaten up, so clearly I really need that first aid kit you can see on the floor. That’s from Frogstar for the new edition of Level Up.
Glam Affair has some really fun skins out for Uber, and this is one version. My hair is Exile and also from Uber. My body bruises are from Soedara, and I found them on Marketplace.

The current round of Collabor88 celebrates three years of this awesome event. As is the custom every year, the birthday edition is HUGE! I have many things I want to share so I won’t blather on.
First up a bit of decor. All the times in this pic, save for my Turnip’s skydome and Botanical cacti, are from Collab’s birthday bash. Full credits will follow, but this beautiful build is from Scarlet Creative. There’s a version of this build without the bright colors, but I really loved them so I went for the colorful one.
If you’re a skin junkie (like me), you’re in luck because there are multiple skin stores participating in Collab’s birthday round. Below you can see one of the versions of Belleza’s lovely Grace skin, available at Collabor88. My gorgeous jewels by Cae are coming soon to the next round of Fit For A Princess.
I have been lacking in home and garden posts of late, so I decided to stage my pic in the lovely new Lima Bean home from Windsong (formerly emm*shop), with some beautiful, romantic furniture from Pixel Mode. My lovely lingerie is by Blacklace.
I will have more from Collabor88’s birthday round in the next few days… stay tuned!
