Balancing Act

I’ve been balancing RL health issues with SL stuff, so I felt like shooting a picture that symbolized this. I went to – yes, you guessed correctly – Blithe and found this log bridge, and it was the perfect setting for how I’ve felt of late. I’m wearing a dress I love from Neve. I think it’s sexy and cute and quirky all at once. It also has a scarf that you can show or hide via the hud. I have it hidden for this pic, but it’s truly lovely and dresses up the look fabulously. My boots are from Reign, for the Sad November event. I love these boots. They remind me a bit of fringed ankle boots I had in 1988.

Balancing Act

I’m also wearing Pink Fuel’s beautiful & newly released Morgana applier for the Catwa head. I’m honestly still learning all the things my various mesh heads can do, but one thing I did learn was that I could add eyeliner from the hud for this head (which you can also tint), and I did so here. I had a fitting issue with my Catwa head, so I messaged the creator Catwa Clip. She was so helpful, and got back to me really fast. Good customer service is something I really value, so I wanted to point that out. We so often hear the bad customer service stories and less often hear the good ones! It turned out I simply had an old version of the head, so it was an easy fix.

Autumn Daydreamer

It’s kind of unusual for me to wear gold anything, but this eyeshadow is really almost a bronze shade, and it worked so well with the colors in the dress. And I won’t deny it, the colors sort of made me think a little of Ravenclaw house colors. Yeah, I’m that dorky. My beautiful cameo jewelry is from Lost Junction, and can be found at The Gacha Garden. I’ve a long love of cameos, and there are so many different designs you can play for in this set.

Don’t wanna sleep

I love the nap tubs from floorplan for The Epiphany. They’re seriously cute, and look so cozy I wish I had one just like them in RL. They have a jumping animation built in, and this is how I feel right now. Like I’d rather jump on the bed than sleep! We’re leaving for a 1200 mile road trip tomorrow (be back Wednesday night), and I am so excited I’m finding sleep elusive. I decided this would be a perfect way to show off the silly gift Izzie’s released at Geeks ‘N Nerds… googly eyed pasties! There’s also ones you can wear over your eyes. They come in both static and animated versions. My hair is another Geeks ‘N Nerds release, from Olive, and my skin is by Atomic and can be found at The Epiphany!

Don't wanna sleep

I took the photo on one of the docks at Blithe. And now, it’s time for sleeping and vacationing! See soon!

Fallen Angel

I admit that when I first saw the Ravaged Wings Jian released for Wrath at the Festival Of Sin II, I was a bit… well, horrified might apply. I mean, they’re pretty gory, what with the flexi blood hanging off them. But they’re also SO well done, and after looking at them for a while I found myself utterly captivated. I wanted to challenge myself… I’ve blogged fantasy, but nothing quite so dark as this, really. I was imagining an angel, fallen from grace, being thrown from the heavens by the gods. I took the photo at Blithe.

I’m also wearing a lovely dress from le fil casse for Black Tie, which, like FOS II, closes September 5th. My foot wraps are from fri.day, for Collabor88’s birthday round, which is also winding down. The gloves I’m wearing are another new release from Jian, available at The Fantasy Collective. Last, but not least, I’m wearing one of Tableau Vivant’s awesome releases for The Arcade. There are a bunch of variations on this Editorial hair, which is just perfect for photography.

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!
