Autumn Mornings

Autumn Mornings

“Once in a while i am struck
all over again… by just how blue
the sky appears .. on wind-played
autumn mornings, blue enough
to bruise a heart.”
― Sanober Khan

Autumn Mornings

A beautiful fall morning woke me up and I took a walk outside to enjoy the colors and the fresh air. It’s unseasonably warm so the vibrant colors are a pleasure. I wore a boho sort of outfit including a new top from Ariadna Garrigus that comes with a great texture-change HUD that allowed me to switch around until I was able to match the scads of gorgeous jewelry from Mea Carnell in her Gacha Garden collection. She gives you many options so you can combine necklaces and different mixes of bracelets and arm cuffs. She even offers rings that fit Maitreya or Slink hands. My boots are Senzati0n Domenitzo’s feature for Sad November. I decided that Paul Lapointe’s great boyfriend jeans would work great with this top.

Autumn Mornings

Inka Mexicola’s beautiful skin for Kustom9 allowed me to remove the mesh heads for a day and breathe in the fresh air. With several makeups, it’s fresh and lovely with gorgeous brows and eye makeups. My tousled hair is one of Shylah Honey’s pieces for Fameshed this month, an unrigged wavy ‘do finger combed and tossed back with pretty tendrils framing the face (and suspiciously like my own RL hair).  Enjoy the fall colors on the Loch Noble sim as I did. It’s gorgeous!

Flutter

Flutter

“There is nothing holier in this life of ours than the first consciousness of love, the first fluttering of its silken wings.” ~ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Flutter

My beautiful sexy fae is today’s fantasy, a winged queen with a sensuous look. Start with the lascivious pearl harness Sigifaust has made for this month’s Shiny Shabby. It was fully modifiable so I could shape it around my Maitreya body. I added Bax Coen’s up to there thigh high boots, this version made specifically for the Maitreya body, and a beautiful crown of jewels from Donatela Couturier to grace my butterfly queen. Pretty wings from artladyjas make her a butterfly.

Flutter

My inspiration started with one of Umazuma Metaluna’s gorgeous appliers for the TAG Gacha with a butterfly stamped across the eyes and luscious purple lips. I have to say that Uma’s skins are gorgeously evocative on the Catwa Jessica head and they photo so beautifully. I can’t want for her to do more! I chose beautiful mesh eyes from Soleil Reid to echo the gold and purple in my outfit and I colored my hair from Shylah Honey, one of hers at the Fantasy Collective, with one of the 40 colors in their new HUD. What a fantasy!

shopping chance: the chance of finding something magnificent on a shopping trip when you need nothing at all ~ Urban Dictionary

Chance

Threw my purse in the car and took off shopping. It’s just one of those days when I hope I might find a perfect something by chance, a sort of psychic gacha. I know I had lucked out yesterday with this gorgeous dress from StellaJane that includes a texture change HUD with a ton of gorgeous east Asian silk textures (like nothing I have quite seen before in SL). Lush and beautiful, I could choose a number of different looks off the one HUD at a great price. I loved how she got the texture so satiny with perfect proportion. I paired with it Glamistry’s new strappy platforms, sexy and simple with his great texture change HUD to control different parts of the shoe. Lovely earrings from AvaGardner Kungler, a great find from On9, and my Arcade gacha handbag from Fashionboi Landar, and I was set to shop ‘til I dropped.

Chance

Inka Mexicola will be releasing a set of makeups on a medium01 skin for the Cosmetic Fair. They are lovely and compliment different looks without being too outre as some gacha skins can be. My hair is Shylah Honey’s lovely side-parted and brushed look for Tres Chic, which is opening in a couple days. I love these pretty blue eyes from Audrey Lamede from The Men’s Dept. (Yes, eyes are unisex—”pretty” on women and “handsome” on men.) I rode in style at !ndustry with Wavie Haller’s rockin’ convertible from the Arcade.

Summer Reading

Summer Reading

“There is a temperate zone in the mind, between luxurious indolence and exacting work; and it is to this region, just between laziness and labor, that summer reading belongs.” ~ Henry Ward Beecher

Summer Reading

Summer is a wonderful time to sit down with a good book, especially when it’s hot outside. I remember, as a kid, being in some summer reading contest in the library every year and trying to gobble up as many books as I could. Since these are the hot days of summer, I wear as little as possible and read read read. Today I am out on the beach in a Erratic Rain’s new bikini for Uber, a two piece set fit perfectly to the Maitreya body. Yes, I am wearing ridiculously sexy shoes as well because, well, gotta look good when you’re sunning and this pair from Senzati0n Domenitzo for My Attic, tops the sexy list.

Summer Reading

My long hair seems unusually perfect on a breezy beach but this is SL, and fantasies abound. (Like the one about walking through sand in high heels.) Shylah Honey has made this hair exclusively for the Mix Event, which starts on August 1. And I purchased the skin Lumiya Rae is offering at The Lexi Project because it was so gorgeous and came with appliers for LeLutka and Omega. After trying it out on the Leda head, I decided this was the perfect look (especially after squashing my shape head a bit). I added a lighter lipstick by applying Carrie Janick’s lipstick set and then using the head HUD to dial the intensity down, mixing the purple from the original skin and the pink from the lipstick set.

Damselfly at Hair Fair 2015

Damselfly at Hair Fair 2015

Yay! It’s that time of the year again and you betcha, we have some HAIR for you! So for the next two weeks I will be showing hair I found at the Hair Fair and giving you a delicious look at all that is available and maybe spur you to get over there to SPEND MONEY to help WIGS FOR KIDS.

Hair Fair 2015 Join Us Poster

The fair opens on July 11 at midnight or thereabouts (SLT) and closes July 26. Every single purchase you make donates at least a portion to Wigs for Kids, which makes wigs for kids who lose their hair due to medical conditions. It’s that simple. Each hair replacement system is quite costly as it is custom and is donated to the recipient. So each little sale you make adds up to one more step towards a wig for a kid.

On July 26, they will have the traditional Bandana Day, where they remove hair and wear bandanas. On each sim in several spots are donated bandanas for purchase with 100% of the proceeds going to Wigs for Kids. The bandanas are transfer so get some for your friends because after the fair is over, they are gone! I have seen some amazing bandanas made for this, so I highly recommend you check out the bandana stores.

Damselfly at Hair Fair 2015

My first set of photos is from Shylah Honey and TOmmy Fairplay at Damselfly. Shylah and Tommy have been making content in SL since 2004 (!) and do custom mesh hair with a great set of textures, all on texture-change HUDs. I know for a fact they have worked their butts off getting these hairs done and a portion of the sale price goes to Wigs for Kids. Shylah cooked up some gorgeous looks for this fair! Tommy has two terrific men’s hairs up as well.

Damselfly at Hair Fair 2015

I wear the hair with a lovely dress from Miffyhoi Rosca, available at Shiny Shabby, which is going into its last week for this round. My face applier is one of Nena Janus’ new sets for the LeLutka head, which includes several gorgeous makeups on Nena’s beautiful skin. And my choker is SigiFaust’s open collar-compatible choker for ROMP.

The Best of What Might Be

The Best of What Might Be

“Summertime is always the best of what might be.” ~ Charles Bowden

The Best of What Might Be

Summertime brings so much light and happiness, which is good because it needs to hold me through the other parts of the year. I put on this little dress from Kim Lysette, who has opened her own store with her partner, Dean, and remembered what summer is all about. With separate texture change for both the top and the skirt, I can make up a variety of looks with this one dress and it’s available at a ridiculously low price. Kim has always had terrific textures and a great sense of style, so her new store is bound to have something for everyone. My look is accented with bangles from Monicuzza Babenco, one of many selections at Oh My Gacha, and my shoes are a charming look with diamond studded fish bones from Ashleey Andrew. I saw this handbag from ThePierrot at Origami and had to have it.

The Best of What Might Be

Aleida Rhode put out this skin at Anybody and it comes with every kind of applier imaginable. I have heard from several designers what a tedious bit of work it is doing appliers, so when you put on your mesh body, thank that creator in your head. I added to her lovely face with liner from Constance Daehlie and lipgloss from Soleil Reid. Shylah Honey is featuring this darling side-swept ponytail at Season’s Story when it opens. With strands coming loose, it’s a perfect idea of my summer: casual and fun.

“My bedroom is my sanctuary.” ~ Vera Wang

Sanctuary

There’s nothing like a cozy, sexy bedroom for a woman in SL. This great bed with color change sheets, pillows, blanket and headboard from JianSL at ROMP has a bunch of sexy animations for bedroom fun. Sway Dench has made a bunch of furniture and accessories in black and white that are EXCLUSIVE for the Mix Event this month so if you want them, get over there (and check their HUD for other great buys).

My sexy corset, which is topless and pantless (which I *mostly* hid) is Iki Akira’s exclusive at ROMP and honestly, it fits great over the Belleza Isis mesh body with few alterations. Sexy bowed platforms from Nardya Rousselot are one of two pairs she is featuring at ROMP and they come in sizes to fit Slink, Maitreya AND Belleza.

Sanctuary

I AM wearing the Belleza Isis mesh body. Can’t you tell from my cute little can peeking out from beneath my corset? For matchy match, I have Shyla Diggs’ newest version of Amelia, a lovely lush set of skins she did exclusively for the Mix Event. My long (and modest) wavy hair is Shylah Honey’s newest for the Mix Event, and it comes with all their fantastic colors!

Another year!

Birthday Buddies

The SL12B celebration for the community is almost over but there are still a few days to get some of the great things from the SLBig Hunt and the freebie areas on the sims, including your own KittyCat, made especially for the birthday. KittyCats employed the colors of the logos to decorate the kitties.

I am also using this chance to check the flexibility of Tricky Boucher’s newest mesh bodies. I made my avatar a curvier girl—not in the distorted idea of large butt and breasts and tiny waist but a viably larger girl with full hips and belly, arms and legs. I tried all three bodies on and saw how each could work but the Isis fit best under this dress from Marcopol Oh from Shiny Shabby, which I wore in large. “Fit” means that I could use the alphas in a way that allowed the body to look reasonable and believable with the dress. Freya’s legs were just too thick to work with the dress (though it was perfectly viable). The Venus gave a nice shape too though it seems Isis has a wee bit more booty, which I liked.

Birthday Buddies

I am wearing the absolutely lovely Amelia skin from Shyla Diggs, which looks gorgeous on my fuller face with its lovely features and makeup. Shylah Honey’s darling hair for Fameshed makes my look pretty and classy. I love the curls and the pinned bangs. This hair can easily be retro as well as contemporary. This posing blanket is from Olaenka Chesnokov and will be available for FLF. It has texture change and many cute poses.

A cute necklace and bracelet set from Maxi Gossamer at Uber fit wonderfully as did the initial ankle bracelet from Natalee Oodles from Shiny Shabby, which I had to resize up to fit my ankle and it looks terrific. Glamistry is still making shoes that fit Belleza feet and you can see even with filling out my shape, my ankles look beautiful.
