Autumn Brunch

Dust Bunny did a gorgeous brunch gacha set for The Epiphany. I have a bit of an obsession with SL food (I even have a flickr group for it). I just think it adds another layer of realism to SL. My cute, cozy sweater is from Neve and you can grab it at Uber.

Brunch

I’m wearing the adorable Olivia heels by Ingenue with my cute pleated, plaid skirt that is also from Neve at Uber. I love this sassy bobbed hair that is a new Exile release at the Mainstore. My cute prop pose is a collab between Cubic Cherry and Elephante Poses and you’ll find it at Rewind. The theme for this round is the 40s and there’s lots of awesome glam and cute retro items to be had so be sure to check it out before it ends on November 28th.

Hello October

October has long been one of my favorite months. I love autumn. Right now it’s snowing outside, the leaves are mostly a glorious gold and it’s just breathtaking. It will be a bit before I add snow in SL, though! I have to savor this season as much as I can! So, I’ve created an apple orchard, a table for “selling” my wares, a pumpkin patch, a cornfield… and I’m still working on my sim! But I had to share some of what I’ve done so far, and I had the cutest autumn ensemble going on! My top is Decoy, available at the current round of Collabor88 until October 6th. My adorable Mary Jane style sneakers are also a Collabor88 release, from Ingenue. I absolutely love these and they come in a wide mix of solids and patterns, so there’s something for everyone. My cozy leggings from Neve can now be found in the Mainstore, and come in a wide variety of colors and prints.

Waiting for a sale

My hair is Athena, by Truth. It was the VIP group gift in September. It’s still available as the group gift, but I don’t know for how much longer! Still, older gifts are available for sale. The VIP group is SO worth being in because you get a multi-style full colorpack hair each month! Athena is one of my all-time favorite hairs in SL. I love all of these rebellious, wild curls and it almost makes me want to cut my RL curls shorter. But then add in the cute side braid and style options and it’s really versatile, too. My Catwa skin applier is Olga from [theSkinnery] and it is also at Collabor88 through the 6th. I topped the lips with one of the colors from the Sheer Kiss palette from Pink Fuel. These adorable Jack-o-Lanterns are by Candle and Cauldron and you can buy them individually or in fatpacks per color.

Sincerity

I’m just chewing gum

Recently, I happened upon a new-to-me artist named Nina Nesbitt and her song Chewing Gum. One of the lines is “cuz I’m a made-up mess in a backless dress” and well, I was already wearing this sexy backless dress from Neve, which you can grab at Uber through September 23rd on and it just seemed like kismet. I styled the rest of the look around the sexy, peppy song. My hair is a recent Mainstore release from Truth called Lady, and it includes multiple styling options, which you can see here. The killer red heels I have on are from Ingenue’s Cosette gacha at The Arcade, and this is just one of 16 colors to collect!

I'm a made-up mess in a backless dress

I am also wearing a new skin applier by [theSkinnery] for Catwa heads. Karen is available at Ultra through October 8th. I really like this skin. I love the messy brows and the soft sheen it has. There are also really cute crinkles around the eyes, which make me happy. While I can appreciate the absolute flawlessness of some of the skin appliers you find in SL, I also really love seeing the realism offered by creators like Umazuma Metaluna who owns [theSkinnery]. My gorgeous, bold jewelry is Cae’s Anika set which is available at FaMESHed through September 27th.

Autumn Ana

LAQ’s been on a roll lately with the mesh heads. Ana is one of the four currently available bento heads at LAQ. I really love this head. The face is so sassy and flirty. I’ve added freckles, also by LAQ, which are really cute. Of course, it’s full on autumn here in Colorado with the aspens changing to yellow, so naturally I have a pumpkin spice latte, courtesy of Reign’s Fall Vibes collection at The Arcade. My hair is from Exile and you can find it at Collabor88 The hat is optional, but super cute so I had to wear it. I’m wearing eyes from [theSkinnery].

Ana

My shorts and cozy top are both Neve releases currently available at FaMESHed. My knee high socks are appliers from Izzie’s and the woven boots I’m wearing are from Reign’s second machine (Fall Essentials) at The Arcade. My bag is also Reign, and it’s rigged which makes me so happy. It’s from the same Fall Vibes gacha collection as my latte.

Final hours of The Arcade!

With under 2 days remaining for the June round of The Arcade, I wanted to do a post to remind you to run over there if you haven’t already! Or go back if you want to try one last time for that one item you didn’t get. I’m grilling on Tres Blah’s Summer Fete open grill (a rare), which I was dying to win and finally just yesterday did! My Ingenue shoes are also from The Arcade (more on them in a few). The hat and hair combo is by Truth and you can grab it at Uber (there’s also a hatless version), along with this top from Neve and these adorable shorts from Poppy. I want to say a few things about the top. There are 3 different styles of ruffly tops from Neve at Uber (all named after desserts as sweet as the tops). You should be aware they all have built in arm poses in order to not break the mesh. However, there’s a good variety in sizes and even with my curvier av I found a pose that didn’t put my hands inside me.

Grillin'

What I most wanted to share are the Lykke heels from Ingenue. I blogged a pair of these a few posts back, but this color is special. Not only is it utterly adorable, it’s an exclusive! It is Ingenue’s prize for playing the machine 25 times, and they will never be available again once the event ends. The pattern is called confetti and I fell for it the second I saw it! The colors, the style and just everything about these shoes melted me. They were something I considered a “must have” because they’re different and cute and yeah. I love them, is that obvious yet? To help show off my sassy shoes is one of Jian’s Cheeky Chihuahuas, also at The Arcade. This photo wasn’t edited at all beyond cropping, as I really wanted you to see the pattern detail.

Footloose and fancy free

Finally, I wanted to show off a few items from the current round of Cosmetic Fair, and the freckles applier by [TheSkinnery] that is currently available at Cosmopolitan. My eyeshadow is one of the Tropical eyeshadow by Arte. This palette is bold, shiny and gorgeous. I’ve used the Catwa hud to blend it a bit, but it’s gorgeous fully bold, too! I’m also wearing one of Bossie’s Summer Lipstick appliers from the event, which again I’ve blended down some (this was to make it work better with the shape of the mouth on my skin applier, which is from [TheSkinnery], too). I’m wearing one of Catwa’s new bento mesh heads, Koura. I demo’d both Koura and Tala (the newest release). Tala is adorable but looked really, really young on me. So if you’re wanting a younger look I definitely say to try it out. I went for Koura because it was a bit more mature and just overall felt more like me. My necklace is a sequel to Cae’s Kitten release. This one features gemstones instead of pearls, and you can find it in the Mainstore now.

Turquoise eyes under a turquoise sky

This is my final post before I leave for vacation Saturday, but I return July 10th so look for a new post later that week!

Goodbye Blithe

You may have heard the sad news that Blithe has closed. I visited last night to take on final pic. I love printed canvas sneakers, and these floral printed Ulla sneakers from Ingenue won me over as soon as I saw them. They remind me of the Keds I loved so much as a teen. My jean shorts are a recent Mainstore release from Just Because. More stores have been doing Mainstore releases lately, and I have to say I’m finding it refreshing! I love events, but I miss the days of discovering things at a Mainstore, too. Speaking of Mainstore releases, my hair from Exile is another recent one! My cute, strappy tank is from Neve and you can find it at the current round of The Liaison Collaborative.

Goodbye old friend

Last month [TheSkinnery] released a new Catwa applier called Lily. I loved it immediately, but it took me ages to get my shape tweaked just right for it. I’m finally thrilled with it, and of course that meant it was picture time! I’m also wearing Catwa eye appliers from [TheSkinnery] which are available at Rewind’s 1980s Roller Rink round. In addition to the Catwa appliers, there are also mesh eyes for those that prefer them.

Sunshine in her eyes

I will truly miss Blithe. Some of my most favorite pics were taken on one of the sims of Blithe, and I am really grateful to Harlow and Jess for their hard work on it.

PS. Did you notice my hair is kinda reddish again?

Spring Rebel

Cosmetics Fair is going on right now, and if you’re a makeup/applier/tattoo addict like me, this is something you definitely want to check out. Also, you still have some time to get to the current – and awesome – round of Collabor88 before it ends. I’m featuring items from both events in this post. First, I was utterly thrilled when I saw that [TheSkinnery] had a LeLutka applier at Collab. I love my LeLutka heads, especially Chloe, which I’m wearing here with Nora (and other strange sentences you don’t say in RL). My eyeshadow is a Cosmetics Fair release from Arte, which is a new-to-me store. I really loved the palette; it was all very spring-y pastels. The tattoo applier I am wearing is also from Cosmetics Fair, by Nanika, which is another new-to-me store. But I really love this tattoo. It has a black option, too. But for spring I kinda liked the idea of white! My eyes are by Song and are also available at Cosmetics Fair. I am really fussy about eyes and I love these, so if you’re particular like me, definitely check them out!

The recent updates to LeLutka’s bento heads includes multiple teeth options, and also comes with braces. I know this is going to sound SUPER weird, and I also know anyone who actually has or had braces is gonna say I’m crazy, but as a kid I wanted braces SO BADLY. I can’t explain it. It started in 2nd grade when a girl I had a crush on got a retainer, and I thought she looked so freakin’ cute. I used to make a fake retainer out of a paperclip (which I am sure was great for my teeth). So actually, suddenly it makes perfect sense why I had that obsession. But anyway. Yeah. I had to wear the braces lol. Oh, my manicure is also from Cosmetics Fair and it’s by Alaska Metro. You get a ton of options and variations with this applier, and it’s well worth the price.

Spring Rebel

My dress is a new release from Neve, and it’s so sassy! I love how short and sexy it is, and the color options are gorgeous. The one I’m wearing is in the Aura color pack and it reminded me of rainbow sherbet. My strappy, sexy heels are from fri.day and you can snag them at Collabor88. Also from Collab is my furniture set from What Next. The vase of tulips are also What Next, and can be found in the mainstore. My sweet little puppies are from JIAN at The Epiphany. You can snag my sassy Exile hair at the current round of Collab, too! I’m still playing with colors, and I really love the newly updated textures and HUDS. Check them out if you haven’t yet!

Spring Spaniels

Oh, one final note? I’m wearing the recently updated Maitreya Lara body, which now includes bento hands, complete with animations, one of which I’m using above!
