Events, events, events!

So many events, so little time! This post is a hodgepodge of events, featuring the Under The Sea Expo, http://seraphimsl.com/2013/06/08/collabor88-june-edition/, The Garden, My Attic and The Outlet! *wipes brow* That’s a lot of eventage! Yeah, I know that’s not a word.

First up, I love this gown from The Muses, available at Under The Sea Expo. It’s such a unique style. It’s a mesh/system hybrid (the bikini top is system), and it’s great for RP or just for dramatic fun. I’m kind of obsessed with purple lately, so I had to wear the purple one.

The Siren's Walk

I paired the dress with some gorgeous jewels from Ellabella, and this stunning Glam Affair skin for this month’s Collabor88. My eyes are from IKON (big surprise, I’m sure). Both of these pics were taken in the A.D.D Andel! Beach Nights Skysphere.

In the fog

I fell in love with this dress from Evie’s Closet, also from the Under The Sea Expo. It’s another mesh hybrid, with system layer seashells and a flexi skirt. Honestly, it’s been so long since I’ve worn anything flexi, I’d forgotten how fun it can be to photograph when you’re using AO poses (as I did here). Mesh is awesome, but it doesn’t move the way flexi does, obviously, and sometimes I miss that sense of movement in photos! This adorable ice cream cart gives wearable ice cream props, and it’s from What Next for The Garden. The floating lounger in the background is also from What Next, for Summerfest (more on that coming to a blog near you soon!).

Land Legs

My hair is from Ploom, and it’s at My Attic. I loved the starfish add on so much. I decided it would be perfect for this dress. All I could think when I saw this dress was of when Ariel gets legs in The Little Mermaid. Obviously, her clothes were uhm, different from this… but still. I imagined Daryl Hannah in Splash, too (totally dating myself here). And I thought… mermaids must like ice cream, too! My hands are SLink and the nails are from A:S:S Unicorn applier pack. The skin is Aeva for The Outlet. I loved the colors of the eyeshadow, and thought they worked nicely with my starfish hair adornment! Both of these pics were taken in the A.D.D Andel! Beach Days Skysphere.

Mermaids like ice cream too

More from me soon! There are more events to cover, after all!

For Aeva Heartsick

One of the things I love about Second Life is seeing how it can be a real community, one that comes together to help one of its members. The For Aeva Heartsick event is one of these times. Amesha Jewell, the owner of Aeva/Heartsick and an incredibly talented designer, relies on her computer for her RL income. Specifically, she relies on SL earnings. Unfortunately, her computer finally died. Amesha’s been making a very long commute to her parents’ home as needed in order to get some work done, but friends wanted to help her out and organized a fundraiser to help offset, if not cover, the costs of replacing her computer. You can read more about the event here. There’s a wide variety of offerings to be had, and here I am featuring just a few of my favorites.

First, this new skin from Aeva highlights Amesha’s talents so perfectly. It also shows her dedication, given she did this work at her parents’ home so she could offer something at the fundraiser herself. Lyric has amazing eyes, don’t you think? There are other skins available, too, including some fantasy skins. Each skin is only L$100 and includes appliers for Puffy, Lolas and Lush breasts. Also, an added bonus… there are mesh feet in each skin box! So, if you’ve wanted some prettier feet but not wanted to spend the L on them, this is a great way to get a pair that match the skin exactly. The lipstick I have on is an add-on from Aeva and you get multiple colors for just L$75. I am wearing a necklace from Collisions that is also available at the FAH event. My beautiful ring is Cae’s Alchemy ring (at the birthday round of FaMESHed). Like all of Cae’s jewelry it has multiple gem and metal options, which I love.

Lyric (Aeva Skin)

When I saw this new hair from LoQ, I knew I wanted it. I love how summery it feels. Somehow it manages to be both messy and elegant at the same time! My dress is from Sakide, and is another FAH item. It comes in three color choices, but the black and white was my favorite. I paired it with my Gos Boutique espadrilles and felt the look was complete.

For Aeva Heartsick Event

This is a lovely event designed to help a fellow SLer who happens to be an absolute sweetheart and an incredible talent. So, why not hop over and have a look? Maybe you’ll find something a “must have” item and help a member of our community at the same time! The event runs through May 14th, so be sure to check it out before it’s over!

Prissy In Pink

Happy Valentine’s Day! I’m still recovering from a nasty bout of bronchitis… but I didn’t want to let today go by without say I hope you all have a lovely ❤ Day.

My adorable look inspired the title Prissy In Pink. The skin, a Valentine's Day special from Aeva, is so deliciously pouty. When I added the hair – Tenille – from Truth's last release, with it's poufy bow and the corset dress from Greymoon with its polka dots, I just felt so girly. This dress will be out in Greymoon's mainstore in a couple of days, and it's hud controlled with multiple texture options! I'm not usually big on pink… but I get in moods once in a while, and this one just happened to be rather well timed! It also gave me the chance to use the pink shade of my Grace sandals from Gos Boutique! Oh, and btw… for those who don't like hair bows, Tenille comes with an alternate version sans bow!

Prissy In Pink

Now for a closeup of Selene. This skin is just so lovely. I consider one of the Aeva//Heartsick trademarks to be how utterly soft Amesha Jewell’s skins look. The Sweetheart makeup, special for Valentine’s Day, is ultra feminine, and there’s a quiet maturity to this skin for those who prefer to look a bit older. My eyes are from IKON’s Eternal line. The shade is called Mesa, and I liked the hint of an almost pinkish brown that this color has to it. I’m kind of obsessed with this line of eyes. I’m incredibly fussy about how eyes look in SL, and I have to confess I don’t like most eyes. I’ve been addicted to IKON eyes since last spring, and that addiction doesn’t seem to be waning at all. Oh, also… check out this adorable necklace from Collisions! It’s called Forever Infinite and it’s so pretty, and yet it’s not overly feminine. It’s designed to be unisex.

Aeva Selene Sweetheart

Lots of hugs to all…

The Forgotten

So, back at the beginning of this month I did some pics for a New Year’s blog. Then I got distracted. Oops. I do that sometimes. Also, can you believe January is nearly over already?

I got my husband to pose with me for a blog pic. He’s reclusive, so this was a special treat. It was actually taken on New Year’s Eve. I have to be honest… it feels like it was far longer than a month ago! My dress is from NiNight Creations. It comes in tons of color options and it’s just so pretty. The detail work on this is spectacular. Rad’s suit is from Fatewear. Behind us you see the cute decor What Next did to ring in the New Year, placed on my Laurel fireplace (also from What Next).

2013

I also grabbed my BFF Rosa for a photo shoot to celebrate the end of 2012 and the start of 2013. This photo box called, appropriately, Countdown was from the December round of My Attic and is by W. Winx. It’s seriously fun. I am not sure if it was an event exclusive, but since it doesn’t have just 2013 on it, it’s something that I know I can use again this New Year’s Eve! Rosa & I are wearing dresses from SySy’s and hair from Exile.

Let the countdown begin

Rosa’s skin is Halo, from Aeva. It’s such a soft and pretty skin, and it suits Rosa so nicely.

My Best Friend

My skin is Lana from Glance. I fell in love with the uniqueness of this skin. It wasn’t quite like any skin I’d seen in SL. I especially love the heavy lidded eyes. They are sleepy and sexy. My necklace is from Maxi Gossamer. I thought a necklace that featured a clock pendant was appropriate for a New Year’s look.

Celebrate

So, there you have it… my New Year’s blog post. It’s still January, so I think it’s in under the wire. Okay, maybe not. But these things were just too awesome to not blog.

Blogger Challenges · iheartslFeed · Looks

Ah, the unplanned hiatus!

So, I sort of took a break. It wasn’t planned, but I found myself needing to refresh and relax last weekend. Then I had a fibromyalgia flare up, and that’s been distracting me all week. I also started a new class this week, at a new university. I’m excited by this, as I really want to accomplish my goal of becoming a teacher! But the result of all this is that I’ve been a distracted blogger, to say the least, and for that I am sorry! However, I have not forgotten my Hair Today, Gone Tomorrow challenge, and I’ve been uploading pics for it on Flickr. I’m still a bit behind, but at least I’ve got some and can catch up a bit. More will come soon.

Since I’m behind overall, I deviated from my default look to show you some cool stuff. But let’s start with the pic I did for Day 5, I’m using my default pose and outfit, but this skin is the gorgeous new Ginevra from Izzie’s in pale. I added the brown eyeshadow and eyeliner tattoo layers. My eyes are Steppe, a new color in IKON’s Eternal series. I love the sort of greenish-tan feel to this shade. I took this pic on Tuesday, the day of the Rolling Restart hell! Our sim was one of many affected by the restarts, and I couldn’t do anything on it most of the day. So, I used the Linden home and snapped this pic there. The chair you see is from Trompe Loeil, and the wall decal is What Next. The hair of the day is Ashleigh from Alice Project. If you are like me and are fussy about the shade of your hair, you definitely need to check out the Alice Project hair. Her huds are amazing and let you do a lot to customize your style.

HTGT Day 5

For Day 6, I deviated entirely from my default look. You can find full credits at the bottom, but this top is from Greymoon. It’s so unique and comes in a lot of colors. The one I am wearing is black and white and I paired it with jeans from Sn@tch. My Day 6 hair is Long Day from Ploom. I technically bought the browns pack, but I tinted it. I’m not entirely sure how I wound up with the browns, lol. Likely I bought them for a shape or pose ad for Embody. I love the messy, wispy style of this hair. I also tweaked a shape and made it my own. I think most people won’t even notice the differences. They are probably more subtle than I think they are!

HTGT Day 6

This skin is new from Aeva. This is Charity bare. It’s so soft and delicate. I felt really pretty and ultra feminine in this skin. What I really love about the bare skins from Aeva is that they still feel more mature than a lot of bare skins. The eyes I used in this look (and the next) also one of the new Eternal eye colors from IKON, Teak. I love brown eyes with my red hair. It feels less expected than green or blue. I mean, I wear those, too! I’m a chameleon, except for my hair color which is (nearly) always red (some blog posts aside)!

Charity

Day 7 features a LeLutka hair I bought ages ago and sort of forgot to ever wear. *Facepalms* But that’s the point of this challenge, right?!? Lively is sooo long and lush. I feel so pretty in this hair. I’m wearing a dress from Sn@tch and the gorgeous new Siobahn skin from Adam N Eve.

HTGT Day 7

I admit that this hair shade isn’t as red as I like it to be, but this style has a little clip. If I tint the hair, I’d tint the clip. And this red is still pretty, especially with the bright lips on this skin.

Siobahn

So, now I’m still 2 days behind (not counting today), but I’ll get caught up soon!

Deck The Halls!

I can’t believe Christmas is finally just about here… only a few days remain! So much I want to blog still!

The Outlet is a sales event that has some great items. One of the available items is this gorgeous, fun, and quirky dress from Greymoon. I feel like I’m all dressed up as my husband’s gift in this sexy, sparkly getup! There are 3 colors at the outlet, including the reverse of what I’m wearing and a purple w/white! Each is only L$75, so check it out! I completed my look with the gorgeous new Pomona jewelry set from Cae, one of Truth’s newest hairs and my sassy red patent heels from G Field. This prop is from Hopscotch, and it’s appropriately called Sexy Christmas. It has multiple poses built into it, and it’s a lot of fun to play with.

Unwrap Me

This skin is another of the Aeva skins for the holidays. This one is Jaci. It’s dramatic and stunning, and perfect for the more formal holiday themed events you might attend!

Deck The Halls

Hopefully I will get another post done before Christmas, but if not a very Merry one to all who celebrate. ❤

Last Call! RFL Christmas Expo!

This is the last day of the RFL Christmas Expo. If you haven’t been yet, definitely try to get there! It’s such a great cause, and it’s a lovely build with tons of goodies.

This first pic features an old fashioned Christmas tree from the Expo and an adorable pose I got from the Adorkable Arcade gacha! The tree is by Hanaya, and like the trees of years gone by it features lovely lit candles. Unlike the trees of years gone by, there’s no fire danger from this one, and the tree skirt is texture change! The adorable kitty bed Winter is sleeping on is one of the items in the KittyCatS Advent Calendar, and it’s from A.D.D. Andel! My presents, aside from the Adorkable props, are all from What Next.

For Me?

The With Love From Hunt also continues, and this cute chalkboard is evolve’s gift for that hunt. The Winter Holiday Side Table is something I found from End of Daze at the RFL Expo. I thought it was crazy cute and just had to put it out! Especially if you like your Christmasy things to have a more modern, clean look, this is a must have.

Christmas with love

Next, if you feel you need a festive and fun holiday skin, Aeva has several absolutely gorgeous ones out… and best of all? They’re only L$100 each! This one is Yves, and I just thought it was stunning. I will be blogging more of these holiday skins ASAP.

Aeva Yves Holiday Skin

This is another pic featuring an Adorkable pose you can get from The Arcade gacha! I thought it was so cute, and I decided to wear this Sakide corset dress from the F R O S T event to create a cute, sexy and playful look. The hair is a relatively new release from Exile, and I loved the flowers (they are texture change, but you can wear it without them, too)!

Helper

I hope your having a wonderful holiday season!
