The Epiphany

The Epiphany opened this week, and if you haven’t gone yet you are definitely missing out. This is the third round of this wonderful event, and it’s just getting better! If you’re not familiar with what makes The Epiphany different from other gacha events, you can read about it here. But just a quick overview, if you’re a fellow gacha addict, you know you often get stuck with extra copies of the same item that you can’t use or don’t want for whatever reason. Well, with The Epiphany you can save your item or redeem it for points. Those points can then be cashed in to get designer exclusives that will not be available after the event ends! Items you choose to keep can still be transferred, so you can change your mind and give them away or sell them, too.

This time all of the designers have their exclusives next to their machines at the event, but also at their Mainstores! The official blog has a complete list of stores with slurls to make life easier for you, so be sure to check that out, too!

I started off by blogging pieces of the beautiful Valentine’s Blush set from Stockholm & Lima! I also stuck a box of macarons from Half-Deer’s adorable Macaron Dream Buffet set in the scene, and I’m wearing the macaron necklace that is Half-Deer’s exclusive item. I’m also wearing one of the lovely Doe hairs from the event. My outfit is a combo of Blueberry and Just Because. The top is from Just Because, and you’ll find it at the Mesh Addicts event. The jeans are from Blueberry, and it’s funny because I was so excited the top fit so wonderfully over these jeans, and then realized they’re the jeans from the sweater ad!

I Will Remember You

More from The Epiphany coming soon! So stay tuned. And thank you, to readers and designers alike, for standing by me during the difficult time I just went through with my grandmother’s illness and subsequent death. I particularly am grateful to the designers who have stood by me with patience and support and understanding. It’s been an unbelievably rough couple of months, especially since this happened during the holidays (not that there’s ever a great time, but it did make it that much harder). While grief is something I know I’ll feel for quite some time yet, I’m feeling like at least I’m at a point where I can channel some of my sadness and emotions here. So thank you for sticking by me, and for the kind words so many of you have given me. I really appreciate it, more than I could say, and I will never forget those who have stood by me during such a tough time. ❤

The blogger’s closet

Festival Of Sin II has been so much fun so far! It’s winding down, and closes September 5th, so I wanted to share some goodies from the event before it’s over!

I love the hair MINA did for Lust. It’s so lush and sexy. The shoes from fri.day for Vanity are gorgeous, sexy and versatile. I’ve paired them with a stunning new release from coldLogic’s new brand neve (more on neve to come soon!). This dress is so pretty, with its lacy texture and (though they’re covered by my hair here) dainty straps. I’m using Exposeur’s glam Luxury Closet gacha for Greed at FOS II as a backdrop for this look. I thought it did a pretty great job of representing what a blogger’s closet might look like, if SL bloggers actually had closets and not inventories. Though come to think of it, mine would probably be more cluttered and less organized! 😛

The Blogger's Closet

In this picture, I’m wearing Blueberry’s recently released yoga pants with items from Uber. My top is Miss Chelsea and my hair is Truth, and both can be found at Uber. The gym bag next to me, by Bueno, is also at Uber. My sleepy koala friend is by +Pepper+ and is at Festival Of Sin II in Sloth. The beautiful barn I’m using as my yoga studio is from Pixel Mode’s Arcade release. This release has NO rares! Even this gorgeous barn build is a common. The Arcade is now open, and runs all month so if you can’t get in yet, don’t fret! You have time.

Koalas can sleep through anything

I was honored to be chosen as a Hottie Cooterati staff blogger, so I’ve blogged some pics over there, but I wanted to share them here, too.

This one was taken on the FOS II sim, in the Sloth section with a fellow FOS II blogger. The builds are spectacular, and honestly it’s worth going for that alone, but there are so many goodies to be had, too. You can read the full credits on this post here.

Seen at the Sloth Motel

This one features Schadenfreude’s Acedia table, which comes in a clean version, too. I also have one of Anya Ohmai’s free sponsor gifts featured here, a snow globe designed for Hopscotch. You can read all about this post here.

Spiders in the attic

Finally, in this picture I’m wearing Alice Project’s sexy bedhead hair for Lust, Baiastice’s stunning gown for Vanity and Cae’s serpent bracelet for Envy, along with one of her gacha rings for Greed. You can get all the details here.

Luscious Freya

I was really excited when Belleza updated their Venus mesh body and included two new versions. Isis and Freya are the new builds. Freya is my absolute favorite. The curves are gorgeous and for anyone looking for a fuller figure in SL, this is a must-try. I’m particularly in love with the legs on this body. It is important to note, however, that Freya will require clothing made specifically for it. Your standard size large (what I wear on the rare occasions I’m not in a mesh body) will not fit on Freya. Fear not, though, as designers are already beginning to make clothes that fit Freya’s unique proportions. I don’t know all of the stores making them, but I do know both Blueberry and Foxes are. Definitely be sure to try demos, to make sure the item in question has a version for this body!

In the pic below, I’m wearing a rather sultry dress that’s a recent release from Blueberry!

Baby I'll change, my mind

I’m also wearing one of LeLutka’s new release for Hair Fair 2015. This event is winding down… it ends on July 26th (which is also Bandana Day). Remember, Hair Fair is a charity event, raising funds for Wigs For Kids! The gorgeous skin I have on is PXL for Wayward Carnival. My beautiful necklace, based on Hermione’s Time Turner in The Prisoner of Azkaban, is from Cae for Wizarding Faire 2015. This event is also coming to an end this weekend; July 25th is the final day. Oh, and my eyes are Buzzeri’s new release for the new Epiphany gacha event.

Reverse

A few final notes about the new Belleza bodies… they include an updated hud, with a lot more alpha cuts, a (very) improved fit around the neck, alpha save slots and some really cool features that, to be honest, I’m still learning! You can read more about the update on Belleza’s site. Please note that this post is NSFW!
