Tumble in the hay

The title of this post is inspired by the stunning Tumble head from Catwa. I want to say this is a “new” release, but with how quickly she’s been releasing gorgeous new heads, it’s not that new anymore! So we’ll call it a “recent” release instead. What I love about Tumble is that it has this elegance and sophistication to it. Clean lines, smaller eyes than some of her more recent heads, a lovely nose… it feels very mature. And it works well with so many of the appliers I’ve tried it with so far! In this pic I am wearing Merry from DeeTaleZ in Nordic, and I think it lends a bit of soft sweetness to this face. I’m also wearing one of Exile’s two new releases for the current round of Collabor88.

Tumble in the hay

My cute top is also at Collabor88, from Blueberry. It comes in a wide variety of colors and the cropped tank underneath can be turned off and recolored, too, via the HUD. My comfy cords are new from Neve, and there are four color options. You can also hide the belt. You’ll find this – along with the rest of the first of Neve’s autumn collection – at their Mainstore. Finally, the shoes I’m wearing are by Reign (also at Collabor88) and… omg they look like they’d be so soft and comfy to actually wear in RL. And I say this as a devout (RL) shoe hater!

Harvest Time

On a final note, the talented Prue Genira is accepting clients for photography and did this gorgeous pic of me last night. It came out so pretty I had to ask if it would be okay to include here. If you’re in need of a new profile pic or portrait, definitely check out Prue’s work!

Bandana Day 2016!

I am posting this much later than I’d hoped to… had some technical issues earlier with my internet sucking. BUT you do still have a bit four hours left to Hair Fair 2016, so you’re not too late to go grab some of the amazing releases, gifts and your very own Bandana Day bandana. Mine was created by the sweet and talented Izzie Button. Isn’t it adorable? Remember, the people who take the time to do these bandanas are giving their time and proceeds entirely to Wigs For Kids. It’s truly a great cause, and something I am always honored to participate in as a blogger. My necklace is coming to FaMESHed tomorrow and is by Cae. My Catwa mesh head Destiny and DeeTaleZ applier Patricia will both available at the Mesh Body Addicts Fair, also starting tomorrow. My lashes are Catwa appliers, which are also from Izzie’s. They were a recent Fifty Linden Friday item, but trust me… they’re worth paying full price for if you missed them!

Bandana Day 2016

My cute bikini top is another in Neve’s recently released swimwear collection, and my sexy jean shorts are from Just Because. The adorable collie pup by my side is available at The Epiphany, from Jian. The flip flops are by Reign, and as of this posting they are still only L$75 at the mainstore. Finally, I am wearing the newly updated Freya body from Belleza. All of the bodies – Freya, Venus and Isis – have been newly updated. I’m going to link to some YouTube videos created by the Belleza team below that explains the updates. But there’s also a fabulous post about it on the Mesh Body Addicts website!

Boardwalk Treat

Possibly the most exciting thing for many of you will be that you can now buy JUST the body you want. While the fatpack is still available, each body is also being sold individually. Definitely watch the first video if you’re interested in just one body type. It helps to explain it all really well. The new hud is really slick and sleek, and you can get further detail on that in the second video.

Over the rainbow

The Pulse Fundraiser is winding down. It will close in just under 24 hours, so if you haven’t gone yet, hurry! If you’re not sure what I am talking about, this fundraiser is benefitting the families and victims of the horrific incident that took place last month at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando. There are a ton of fabulous designers participating, not to mention auction boards where you can bid on some fabulous people and/or prizes.

I wanted to do something sparkly, cheerful and dreamy. So I went to StoryBrooke Gardens and, just by chance, found this giant book. And the quote on the page… “hope springs eternal.” It just seemed perfect. I’m the odd mix of realist and idealist. I often say I’m a realistic idealist. I want to believe change is possible, that things can be different. That the world, as ugly as it can be, is also still full of so much that is beautiful and good. And when I see the SL community come together for an event like this, it’s just that much easier for me to hold on to that hope.

I’m wearing a lot of items you can find at the event. My hair is from Exile, the dress is Valentina E. The body glitter and bracelet are both Izzie’s. My shoes are Reign. The adorable star “freckles” are Vile Cult.

Over The Rainbow

In this pic, you can better see the cute star tattoos, along with the beautiful applier Glam Affair released for Uber. Although this applier was designed with Annie in mind, I am wearing it with Alice here… and I think it’s pretty adorable!

Rainbow Sprinkles

Definitely be sure to run over to the Pulse Fundraiser before it ends. It’s worth it! You get to support a great cause while buying beautiful things. Or bidding on beautiful prizes/people!

PS. I apologize if there are any typos in here I missed. It’s now 2:30 am and I’m sleepy. 😛

Ascension

Hi! So it’s been a while. First I was busy blogging Pose Fair over at Hottie Cooterati’s site and then I traveled back east to visit family. And naturally my husband and I both got sick. Grr. But anyway, I’m back and The Epiphany just opened, so I have things to talk about and share!

Unless you’re living under a mesh rock, by now I’m sure you’ve seen the stunning Oakley set Blueberry did for The Epiphany, but I have to show it to you again because it’s so beautiful, sexy and just overall well done. Plus, it was fun being an angel! I’m wearing hair by Alice Project, which is also at the event, along with the gorgeous sandals from Reign.

Ascension

Also from The Epiphany are my eyes by Buzzeri. I’m wearing the Rainbow here, which are one of three rare colors. But all of the colors are stunning. I also wanted to show the exclusive tiara from Blueberry up close. In case you’re new to The Epiphany, all of the participating designers have an exclusive item which you can get by cashing in your extra gacha items. You can read more about the process here. I’m also wearing White Widow’s exclusive, the band tattoo around my leg. The rest of my tattoos are also from White Widow, in their regular machine.

Doubt

Unrelated to The Epiphany, I’m also in love with the Karin mesh head from LeLutka. I’m wearing it with Lara Hurley’s Iza applier, and I have to say I feel like this combo is the closest I’ve come to my standard avatar face. I enjoy the mesh heads, and I don’t mind looking very different. But it’s kind of cool to have finally found a combo that feels like “me” the way this does.

More soon, from The Epiphany and beyond! In the meantime, here is the shopping guide, and below are the slurls!

Candy Cane Crush

Just a seasonal quickie today… I was shooting the ad for this new prop pose we released over the weekend at Repose, and I liked how it came out and decided to edit it for blogging. The pose is still 60% off through today, if you want to go snag it! Me and my alt are both wearing a new release from Valentina E. Couture that is just utterly gorgeous. You can find it at The Fantasy Collective’s birthday round!

Candy Cane Crush

On a final note, my alt is wearing Magika’s First Light hair, which is part of the Linden Labs 12 Days Of Savings Marketplace event. So you can grab it here at a discounted price for a limited time!

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.
