Bohemian Elegance…

This post is sort of a hodgepodge mixup… but the unifying force is recent releases from Truth and Aeva/Heartsick!

First up, the newest face from Aeva. This skin is called Halo, and it’s absolutely stunning. It features the softness that Amesha’s Jewell’s skins are known for, and an undeniable sophistication and elegance. I’m wearing the Dusk makeup in Tone 1. The brows on this skin are very dark, so I used the No Brow option and added a tattoo layer brow I had from Cupcakes. My jewelry is from Cae, and it’s called Entangled. I might’ve suggested that name to the lovely and talented Caelan Hancroft when she showed me a sneak peek of this set. 🙂 The jewelry is texture change, which I love, and this metal is silver.

Aeva - Halo Dusk (Tone 1)

The hair in these pics is a new release from Truth called Mayim. I am totally in love with this one. It’s romantic, and with the slightly messy quality it can be casual or more formal. I went for casual elegance in this top from Kamouraska – coming soon to the new edition of The Outlet (opening October 15th), and a pair of coldLogic recent jean release. My adorable shoes are from Ingenue for the October edition of Collabor88. For just L$88 these are a must have in multiple colors! I have the lilac, shown here, as well as the black… and I might just go back for more before it ends next month! I shot this next pic in the Tuscan build from MultiScene.

Solitude

If you’re not familiar with MultiScene, check it out. It’s $L30/hr to rent and you get so many amazing options. It’s a great source for bloggers and photographers, or even store owners who want “scenes” for their vendor ads. But for my next look, I knew just what I wanted. I created this look using a summery dress from NiNight Creations, but I added a turtleneck from fri.day and lace stockings from G Field, and the oh-so-popular Stagioni boots from Maitreya (I finally bought a pair) to give it a fall, boho chic look. My friend Altair commented that I looked ready for a poetry reading, and that inspired this pic that I called Open Mic Night. I went to the very popular, and utterly adorable Pixel Bean Cafe to take these shots.

Open Mic Night

This hair is also a new release from Truth, called Havana. I’m wearing Blaze, which is one of the new shades from the Fades color pack. I really like these colors! They are fun and playful, and suited this look. The jewelry is Maxi Gossamer, and my eyes are from the new Kaleido series at IKON. This skin is a revamp of an old Heartsick skin called Chloe. Aeva is the name of all of Amesha’s new skins, and Heartsick is the older brand… but she revamped Chloe and I’m glad she did because it’s beautiful. I’m wearing the Asylum makeup in the Cream shade.

Heartsick - Chloe - Asylum - Cream

These were all a lot of fun to shoot! I am definitely in love with these skins.

Stay tuned because soon I will be blogging from Cinema. If you haven’t heard about this event, check out the details here. I’m so incredibly excited and honored to get to blog this one. I’ve been looking forward to it since I heard about it, which at this point feels like months ago.

A Hearty Harvest…

It was a brisk autumn morning, and I had a busy day ahead of me. I knew I’d need a good breakfast to keep me going, so I fried up some eggs and bacon, toasted some bread and steamed some milk for hot cocoa. I had already finished my eggs, but my husband was no place to be seen for his… and I have to admit, they smelled good enough that I considered eating his share, too! Instead, I sat and drank my cocoa. I was wearing my quirky and adorable Sunday Breakfast dress from Zanzibar CreationZ, but even with the wood stove burning, I was a touch cold, so I tossed on my Carolina jacket from e! to stave off the chill. And, so maybe I cheated a bit on the breakfast and had it catered by Rassasy Foods… shhh. Don’t tell Rad on me!

Breakfast

I spent the day decorating, and getting things right for my Harvest Party. However, with my eldest daughter usually off at Hogwarts, I didn’t want to miss the rare opportunity for some bonding time. So, we went out onto the patio (which I built myself, well, sorta… and yeah, I’m actually dorky enough to be proud of that one prim I didn’t even texture). Ashlan was thrilled when I used a bit of magic to light us a fire. Sitting in our comfy What Next Autumn Porch chairs, in the glow of the embers, as the fire crackled away, we sipped on yet more cocoa… and we weren’t cold at all! It helped that Ash was dressed for the weather in her Tres Blah sweater dress and Sn@tch tights!

Fireside bonding

Alas, all good things must end, and Ash used the Floo Network to return to school… while I changed into festive – yet comfy – party attire. I had snagged my cute top from ISON at The Arcade, along with this collar from Piddle. The skirt is Elena from Sn@tch… I love the silvery threads woven through it. My adorable shoes are another Arcade find, one my friend Cami was kind enough to share when she got an extra. These Ariane shoes from Ingenue are one of the “rares” you can win – if you’re lucky. My autumn decor is from What Next. I loved this Pumpkin Party Cooler set. It dispenses drinks, and it’s oh-so-adorable. Definitely put me in the party mood, which is rare! Also, for those who prefer their harvest drinks warm and non-alcoholic, I naturally had to make the Pumpkin Spice Lattes on this tray… you can get the recipe from the What Next Autumn Frames set, and it’s so cute that you’ll also want to hang it up to share with all! And because I’m a chocoholic, there was also more cocoa on hand!

Harvest Party

Though nervous, I think I managed to pull off my role as hostess rather nicely. My buffet table from La’Lalicious was the perfect place for all my party accouterments, along with this adorable scale that What Next has to offer from Zodiac this round (and I believe the scales are exclusive to the event). My hair got a bit messy, as you can see, but I think it worked with the boho chic look I’d put together.

Cocoa anyone?

I like to think a fun time was had by all… and I’m looking forward to my holiday party! I definitely plan to get that catered, too. 😉

Monday Mix

I have to start this blog post with a bit of a happy dance. Why? Well, my Denver Broncos won their opening game yesterday! Go Peyton Manning! I’m not like a crazed football fan, but I do love my Broncos. See, I moved to Colorado in 2006, but I’d already been a Broncos fan since 1989. Kind of an odd choice for a girl from NJ, but… well. There may have been a cute boy involved. His name was Rick and he was from Colorado originally, and he was a football player and we were 13 and “dated” for all of 3 weeks before he dumped me for a girl named Starr. No, really. That was her name. With two Rs… I’d been following the Broncos because I didn’t really have a favorite football team.

Well, my relationship with Rick was short lived, but I’ve loved the Broncos ever since! That 13 year-old girl could never have imagined someday she’d actually live in Colorado. But, I do… and this time of year, I am really feeling the blue & orange color combos as a result! Which brings me to my first look for this post… this recent sweater release is one of a couple of items I have from coldLogic that combines orange & blue! I’ve even wondered if the powers that be at coldLogic are Broncos fans. Probably not, but let me pretend, okay? I paired this top with these adorable fall tweeds from BOOM for Collabor88… I seriously need to go back because I want ALL THE COLORS. The hair is Briony from Truth’s latest release. And now I can admit that I am dorky enough about my Broncos and the orange & blue that I bought these deck flats from G Field just because they were the right orange to go with this look. And though this pose Rad made is technically for male avs, I think it worked okay for this pic! And once again, I went to scribbled hearts to shoot because it’s just so perfect for my autumn picture needs!

Orange & Blue

Now, I have to admit something. I’m not usually a big fan of animal prints. They just aren’t, well… me. But this dress from Valentina E. Couture for faMESHed is so sexy and chic and I just loved it. I also loved this hair from Wasabi Pills, which is another faMESHed item I just had to have! It’s really versatile. The clips make it very cute, but the overall feel is so sleek and sophisticated.

faMESHed

My lipstick is from Izzie’s Vibrant Lipstick pack and I loved how closely it matched the purple in the dress.

Writing on the wall

Finally, if you haven’t heard about the Summer Harvest Hunt you should definitely check it out. There are a ton of great gifts to be had. I’m not much for hunting, as I get easily frustrated and impatient, but for this hunt I broke form and grabbed several things. But what I wanted most was this adorably sexy top from Sleeping Koala and these patched cords from evolve. This new hair Azrea is from Truth. It’s a definite favorite. I want my RL hair like this! I’m sitting in my Autumn Garden from Tranquility Way Station. I got this last year and I still love it! It has a ton of cute poses and it’s pretty decor!

Summer Harvest Hunt

I have so much more to share with you… but alas, it must wait. Stay tuned!

PS. Collabor88 has moved! You can get the new slurl and see all the goodies – and, oh, my there are many this time around – in the roundup from Seraphim.

One Voice, Part III

More looks from One Voice for you today! Again, I will refrain from being wordy because there’s a lot to see… starting with this gorgeous skin from Lara Hurley.

Jade by Lara

I paired it with this elegant sheath (mesh) dress from Geometry. The back detail on this is just stunning.

Shy

I loved these sexy, summery sandals from N Core, too. They felt like a great compliment to the dress!

Summer Glam

Blacklace released a stunning mesh corset for this event. I’m not even a big fan of yellow, but I absolutely adored this set.

Daring

I also loved the back details, and it gave me a chance to show off this beautiful tattoo from Collisions.

Tattoo My Soul

And… I did one more pic, just because I loved how the corset moved with various poses.

Pin Up

That’s all for this post. Assuming RL cooperates with me, I will be doing another post tomorrow!

Sex Kittens… featuring my alts

Rad made this awesome new group pose and I knew when I shot the vendor ad that I wanted to do a shot just for the fun of blogging it. I gathered up a bunch of my alts to do this. And before you ask, no I cannot log in five avs at one time! My computer is not that good. I had Rad pose as three of them and I was the other two. One thing that’s awesome about this pose is that the poseballs can be hidden, so you can really use it with one to five avs! And yes, I’m biased, but I just love these poses so much. They are sexy and flirty and fun. Keeping this one short & sweet since there’s so much to follow in the credits!

Sex Kittens

Happy Friday!

Culture Shock – the finale

This is my final Culture Shock related post! For this set of pics, I paired the adorable mesh hair from Wasabi Pills with this seriously cute ruffled shorts from G Field (also mesh!). I tossed on some flip flops and a tee from Coldlogic’s recent release and was all set! I decided that this outfit called for some fun, so I decided to stand on my Awesome Blossom picnic table.

More Culture Shock

More Culture Shock

In this second picture, you can see my Funky Junk Lazy Day gazebo and bed… it’s SO cute.

If you haven’t visited Culture Shock yet, you really ought to! There are some awesome creations for sale, and you can help support a great cause while shopping. I don’t know about you, but charity shopping helps alleviate a touch of my shopping addict guilt. 😉

I’m keeping this one short and sweet, in case y’all are already sick of me rambling. 😛 Coming soon… my Collabor88 purchases!
