Have a cupcake, she said. Then… SMOOSH. Cake and icing all over my face.

Candy Coated Autumn

You may have heard that Candy Fair 2014 opened on Friday. This event was a lot of fun last year, and this year it’s even better. The build is just adorable, and easy to navigate (essential for a zero sense of direction spazz like me!).

I have a few things to show you today, and there will be plenty more to satisfy your sweet tooth in posts to come. While many of the Candy Fair designers featured items that are not seasonal – meaning Autumn or Halloween specific – there are some goodies to be found in those genres. One such find is this adorable candy corn mailbox from Lost Junction. It comes in plenty of other colors and designs, too. And there are matching windchimes available. I just thought it would be the perfect October mailbox (please note this is NOT a functional mailbox, but just for seriously cute decor).

Candy Gram

Sway’s did some really cute living sets for Candy Fair, one of which actually is seasonal and resembles candy corn. However, I really liked the chocolate version and it suited this cute vespertine skybox perfectly. The beautiful lantern is from 8f8 for Candy Fair (their non-gacha offering), and the tray of cupcakes and chocolates is just one of Pixel Mode’s avaiable items.

Pose Fair 2013 – Last Call!

Pose Fair 2013 ends on Sunday April 14th! Be sure to stop by before it ends because there are so many goodies to be had, all in one place!

Here are a few more of my favorites. First, from Hopscotch this adorable multipose prop. It comes in a version for regular avs, but I chose the one designed for petites, because it really does seem like the perfect little home for a tiny fairy! I took this pic at Chakryn Forest, one of my favorite sims that allows rezzing. It’s a sim that has a fantasy feel, so I knew it would be perfect for this shot. My petite av is from Al Vulo. Isn’t she cute? She was a gift from my dear friend Lyssa, and I think this is the first time I’ve blogged as a petite!

Dreams of the Fairy

Speaking of Lyssa, I recruited her for this next pic. I fell in love with this Art Dummy/Flowey collaboration for Pose Fair, A Story To Tell A Friend. I just had to have it. Lyssa & I are both wearing items from Collabor88’s April round, too. Check the credits for specific details on that! I took this pic in my cute little Funky Junk schoolhouse, and if you click through to the pic, I have put notes on the various decor items so you know where they are from. If you’d like to know more about any piece, just ask me in comments (here or on Flickr).

Girl Talk

My next pic features another of Hopscotch’s Pose Fair releases, from the Standing Pretty pack. I fell in love with this Magika hair. It’s edgy and sassy, and what can I say… I felt rebellious that night. So much so I even bought the dip dye or ombre or whatever the hell ya wanna call it pack of colors. This beautiful suede dress is from Blacklace, and I must admit, I felt pretty sexy wearing it. My jewelry is from Cae, which I thought added a touch of elegance to my rebellion.

Seeing Green

In the next pic, I’m using one of Adorkable’s Bam poses, also from Pose Fair. For the full body shot, I added my Angelique heels from Gos Boutique. Very sexy, and they definitely suited my mood. Oh, also… did you notice my hands? I finally bought a pair of SLink’s mesh hands. It took me a while because since I change skins so much, it’s a lot of tinting. And I hate tinting. But now Siddean, of SLink has released developer kits and lots of skin creators are making appliers for it, and there are now so many nail polish add ons, too.

Rebel with jewels

There are just so many great stores participating in the Pose Fair, and you definitely should check it out before it ends!

50 Shades Of Sexy: Better Than Chocolate

So, this is the 2nd week of 50 Shades Of Sexy, and yes I am late. I’m catching up, though! I’ll have the 3rd week up later today, and then I’ll be caught up! I’m keeping this one short and, appropriately, sweet. The them was Better Than Chocolate, which makes me think of Sarah McLachlan’s song Ice Cream. I sang that once, at karaoke, for Rad. So it seemed appropriate that a picture of him should be featured in this post! He’s definitely better than chocolate and ice cream and well, basically anything else. The heart platter with yummies is from Rassasy Foods. My picture frame is What Next. The bed – the awesome, amazing bed – is from LAQ Decor. Also, take note of my fabulous feet! These are from the new Gos Boutique line, and I will have more on this unreal series soon, including information about the BEST skin tinting hud in SL.

Better Than Chocolate

This skin is a new release from Cupcakes called Emilia. The Cupcakes sim recently reopened and it looks AMAZING. I really love this skin. It’s very soft and pretty. It also has a lot of add on options, including under eye tattoos. I’m wearing one of those in this pic. I think it adds a unique look to the skin, don’t you?

Cupcakes' Emilia Skin

Look for my take on “Sexual Healing” later today!

Exile for Hair Fair

I actually “discovered” Exile hair at last year’s Hair Fair. I’d heard of the store, but never been there. I liked their reds (I’m fussy about my shade, and spoiled by Truth’s Sangria shade) a lot. So naturally, I was very eager to see what Exile would have out this year!

I instantly, and appropriately, fell in love with Crush. The headband is so cute and I love that it’s optional! The red in these pics is not my usual shade, but rather one of the less red reds in Exile’s Dark Reds pack, Tango. I thought it nicely matched up with the medium brows on the adorable Emma skin from Cupcakes.

Emma Skin from Cupcakes

I love the vintage feel of this hair… and the name just suits it so well because it’s cute and romantic, so I tried to capitalize on that with some (hopefully) dreamy feeling images.

Exile for Hair Fair

The other hair from Exile that I snagged was Sea of Love. I had to debate this one at first. I liked it a lot, but I wasn’t sure if it was very “me.” However, then I got this dress from Aura for MySecondBox and realized I needed this hair to go with it!

Sea Shells

The dress, particularly in this color, felt so beachy and I just wanted to play that up with the adorable seashell headband that comes with Sea of Love. Like the headband in Crush, this is a separate attachment. It was the perfect hair for a stroll at the water’s edge.

Sea Dreams

You still have time to go grab these styles – and so many others – at Hair Fair 2012. It runs through this weekend. You will find Exile on the Sand Sim.
