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.

Temptation

So, if you haven’t heard, Uber did a 50 Shades theme this round. I will readily admit I couldn’t read the book(s). I started the first one, got about 30 pages in and the writing just hurt my brain. It was just that bad. But if it’s your thing, cool. Admittedly, I despised Twilight (though I did finish the first book in that series), and since it was fan fic that inspired this book (still not sure I make that connection, btw), maybe it’s not shocking I hated this, too.

But even if you hated the book(s) like me, you’ll find Uber is full of sexy, sultry goodness. Seriously, like this bedroom set from Sway’s. I loved this in part because it’s so not what I’m used to from Sway’s, and it really works. The pile of clothes, the shirt on the lamp, the unmade bed… it all draws you in. The sultry hair is Exile, also for Uber. My stupidly sexy shoes are from L.Warwick for My SLink Obsession, but as you can see here they also include a version for Belleza’s Venus body.

Temptation

This beautiful skin is Belleza’s Mae for the Vintage & Cool Fair, which opens tomorrow. I particularly loved the black liner and red lips with my new silvery grey eyes from Buzzeri, which recently reopened in world.

Key to my heart

I’ll have more from Uber, along with so.many.other.events soon… ALL THE EVENTS.

Venus by Belleza

You may have heard that Belleza is releasing a mesh body soon. I have a couple of teaser pics to share with you. They are working on a few more tweaks, but it should be out very, very soon! In the meantime, these are completely raw images. All I did was crop them. She’s named for a goddess, and I’m not gonna lie… I feel like one wearing this body!

Venus

Venus comes with two versions. One version comes complete with hands and feet (all one piece, attached to the body itself), which are controlled by the hud. There are three versions of the feet (flat, medium and high), and 16 different hand positions, all controlled by the hud as well. The hud, btw, is wonderfully easy to use. It’s very clearly labeled, and everything you need is in one hud. The other version of the body is compatible with the SLink hands and feet. In the pic below I am featuring L.Warwick shoes that will be available at the Le Ponpon Sweet 60s event in October.

Shy Goddess

Stay tuned for more info on Venus soon…

Collabor88 Last Call!

I wanted to share a few more goodies from the current (but nearly over) round of Collabor88. Remember, this is the birthday round, which is even bigger and better than usual rounds, with lots of guest stores. It’s not one you want to miss!

I rarely ever wear (yellow) gold. I’m just not a fan. But I loved the muted gold of this sexy ISON dress, and of all the jewelry creators I know in SL, none do gold better than Caelan Hancroft of Cae. Her gold is soft and pretty, not brassy or too yellow. So I was perfectly happy to don the Odyssey headband from her Collab set with my dress. Between these pretty golds and my platform decorated for fall, I had Fields Of Gold (this version) in my head as I worked, and that inspired this shot.

Fields of gold

Here is a better look at the headband, and also a close up of Artemis, Glam Affair’s skin for Collab’s birthday! My hair is from Magika, who is one of the birthday guests.

Contemplation

This next look features a gorgeous dress from SySy’s which is available at Collabor88, along with this beautiful long hair from Exile. My sexy, strappy heels are from Glamistry for the SLink high feet.

Afternoon date

In this close up you can see my Bolt necklace, which is Cae’s other offering at Collabor88. Also, check out my gorgeous skin! This is Emily, by Belleza, for The Arcade. Yes, The Arcade is again upon us, and I have plenty to share from it in future posts, so stay tuned. This is the rare in Medium… there are three rares, all very similar, with this minimalistic makeup style & freckles, but in different skintones. In all there are 15 gorgeous versions of Emily to be collected. Each one includes three brow color options and a no brow option you can use your own tattoo brows with instead. Also included is a glossy version of the lipstick and moles! All for L$100 per play.

Emily by Belleza

Happy Birthday, Collabor88!

The current round of Collabor88 celebrates three years of this awesome event. As is the custom every year, the birthday edition is HUGE! I have many things I want to share so I won’t blather on.

First up a bit of decor. All the times in this pic, save for my Turnip’s skydome and Botanical cacti, are from Collab’s birthday bash. Full credits will follow, but this beautiful build is from Scarlet Creative. There’s a version of this build without the bright colors, but I really loved them so I went for the colorful one.

Where the goddess relaxes

If you’re a skin junkie (like me), you’re in luck because there are multiple skin stores participating in Collab’s birthday round. Below you can see one of the versions of Belleza’s lovely Grace skin, available at Collabor88. My gorgeous jewels by Cae are coming soon to the next round of Fit For A Princess.

Lady In Waiting

I have been lacking in home and garden posts of late, so I decided to stage my pic in the lovely new Lima Bean home from Windsong (formerly emm*shop), with some beautiful, romantic furniture from Pixel Mode. My lovely lingerie is by Blacklace.

Long Distance Love

I will have more from Collabor88’s birthday round in the next few days… stay tuned!
