Welcome summer!

It’s officially summer (for those of us in the northern hemisphere at least), and here in Colorado it has felt like it for days. It’s been unseasonably warm (and we have no ac because most summers we don’t need it). So I couldn’t resist something that felt super summery and comfy in SL. I wasn’t really going for vintage, but it just sort of all fell together, and the look I put together wound up being really vintage. I feel kind of like a pinup girl from the 50s! My hair is one of Exile’s Collabor88 releases, and the Resort theme for this round definitely has a retro vibe. My top from Just Because is also at the current round of Collabor88. The adorable kitten heels I’m wearing are Ingenue’s Dorothy shoes for Vintage Fair. These are only compatible with SLink’s Kitten feet. You can wear the feet even if you wear a Maitreya body, and the shoes made for these feet are always adorable and often feel a bit retro. My shorts are by Neve and are also definitely have a retro vibe, and you can find them at FaMESHed’s June round.

Long hot summer

Now, I have to get to something I am so crazy excited about… LAQ’s newly released Gaia bento mesh head. Now there are a lot of mesh heads out there, so you might wonder what’s special about this particular head. Well, I have an answer for you. It has motion capture animations and they are SO DAMN CUTE. LAQ did a video on their YouTube channel that shows the animations, and it’s definitely worth a watch. I managed to catch this shot mid smirk… and thought it was adorable! In addition to the motion capture moods, there are multiple static poses that are good for photography. I am also wearing Cae’s latest release, Kitten. This necklace and earrings set is for sale at Cosmopolitan. I’m only wearing the necklace, but trust me when I say the earrings are every bit as adorable!

Gaia by LAQ

I really, really love this head. It’s so cute and soft. It took me a bit of playing around to get my shape the way I wanted. To make it easier, I used measurements from 2 of the 5 included shapes as a base and worked from there. But once I got it how I wanted, I was just in love. It’s absolutely gorgeous and I definitely recommend demoing it to see if it suits you. I can’t wait to see what appliers are released by both LAQ and other designers.

Bandana Day 2016!

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!

Bandana Day 2016

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!

Boardwalk Treat

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.

Almost summer

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.

Spring Stroll

Happy Friday everyone!

Summer’s Sunset

I readily admit that I am beyond eager for autumn’s arrival. I’ve been ready for weeks, honestly. It’s just always been my favorite time of year. But summer’s not over just yet, even here at 9,000 feet in Colorado where we could theoretically get our first snow nearly any day now (it’s happened as early as August, though not often). And the gorgeous outfit Valentina E. Couture has out for August’s FaMESHed made me want to dress for summer, even as I crave the first golden aspens of fall. So I found a field of golden sunflowers at beautiful Bella Pace. My hair is Tableau Vivant, also for FaMESHed.

Fields of Gold

My skin is Glam Affair’s stunning Fiona for Uber. I really, really love the lips on this particular face. They’re pouty and lush. I’m wearing new eyelashes from Izzie’s for The Mix Event. My necklace by Cae is another new release available at August’s round of FaMESHed. My eyes are another of Buzzeri’s Duo line available at N21.

Backyard Paradise

I have wanted a pool that would work on my sky platform for a long time now, and with Pixel Mode’s newest release I finally have had that dream fulfilled! This isn’t just a pool. This is a lifestyle. With the gorgeous deck space, built in garden areas, a land form you can retexture to match your own land, plenty of sitting animations and a float, this is a pool for the ages.

I figured, if I am going to have this gorgeous pool in my yard, why not create an outright paradise? Why stop at a pool? So I added the new Moose Lodge Sauna Cheeky Pea released for FaMESHed earlier this month. I mean, who doesn’t want to have a good steam and then go cool off with a dip in the pool? Then I thought of my little sister, Isley… and so I had to add playground equipment from What Next, but really who am I kidding? I’m just as likely to use the swing set as she is! Throw in some beautiful deck furniture from Trompe Loeil, a BBQ set from Cheeky Pea and round it off with gorgeous trees, flowers and shrubs and this is definitely a backyard we’ll enjoy all summer long!

Backyard Paradise

You can catch me just sitting, soaking up the sun and sipping sangria – courtesy of Jian’s Mediterranean feast. I’m wearing one of the newest releases from coldLogic. I’ll be blogging that look in closeup sometime in the next few days, but for those who can’t wait, I’m wearing the Haver two piece dress set in Minty and I’m wearing FATEstep’s Jessica wedges.

You’ll find Pixel Mode’s pool at the new Love To Decorate event, which runs through June 24th.
