Wild Honey Pie

Summer’s almost over (as evidenced by the gray sky I see outside today). But I can sneak one more day of shorts in before the air turns nippy. The shorts I chose are demin Daisy Dukes from Paul Lapointe and Bastchild Lotus, as always accompanied by a ton of choices in their texture change HUD, from designs on the pockets to the denim color to the belt style and color. I picked red, of course, to match the corset-like top Annie Melson has made for the Mesh Body Addicts event this month. Darling little cowboy boots from Klari55a for the Mesh Body Addicts match this casual look.

I really am loving Shyla Diggs’ new applier for the Catwa heads, so I chose it again for my blog. This time I have used a darker skin tone and pretty freckles with a deep red lip. I especially like that her skins match up with the Belleza body skins, which are so sexy on the body itself. Somehow Shyla and Tricky have added a special sexiness to the skins with the details they have chosen—beautiful collarbones, a shapely belly, even sexy knees. My long thick hair is NoMatch’s featured look for Hairology, long feathered locks with a center part. It’s a perfect last-breath-of-summer ensemble.

School’s not going to start soon enough in our household. The weather is gorgeous and perfect for shorts and a tank top. I love the textures on this new tank from Paul Lapointe and Bastchild Lotus. I especially loved the old Billy Ocean song lyrics! Apple May’s shorts for Shiny Shabby fit perfectly and are a great look for a warm day, especially with strappy wedges from Darling Monday. A pretty glittery pink choker from Liza Broono from the Dressing Room is a glamorous little touch.

Elikapeka Tiramisu’s darling hair for Shiny Shabby, casually pulled back with a little tie, has a sly, long lock of hair hiding one eye. And it’s a shame to hide these lovely eyes from Audrey Lamede from the Dressing Room. Nicole Button’s applier with freckles sprinkled across the nose lends a sort of innocence to this elegant skin, especially with its bee stung lips and well-groomed brows.

Summer has come, and it’s been spectacular. My son and I have a bucket list which includes lots of cooking (strawberry rhubarb pie, strawberry jam, peach cobbler, bumbleberry pie), biking, walking, festivaling (see the crème brulee below from Bastille Days), swimming at the high school, and huddling in the air during this heat wave. Tonight we took my cousin out for sushi after the big heat-clearing storms. I am exhausted.

Another wonderful feature every summer is Hair Fair, which benefits Wigs for Kids, and it opened on the 16th. As always, Sasy and Whimsy and Mel have put together an amazing line up again with a portion of every single sale helping a kid somewhere  by giving them a wig so they can enjoy their childhood and not worry about their hair loss.

Creme Brulee

Tommy and Shylah at Damselfly have always generously given for this event and I am showing three of Shylah’s gorgeous styles for the event. My updo is non-rigged, which allows me to resize it to fit the Stella mesh head from LeLutka. With a lovely skin from Inka Mexicola for Kustom9, I think it’s a high fashion look.

Creme Brulee

If you want to go fuller, this style has the look you crave and frames my face and other parts of me nicely (to show off the necklace AvaGardner Kungler is featuring at We <3 RP, of course).

Creme Brulee

And Shylah made this sleek longer style with a lock in front. I think the whole look is great with Zlyskritek’s darling dress for Mesh Body Addicts and Senzati0n Domenitzo’s cute shoes for Shiny Shabby.

I will try to squeeze in more Hair Fair looks as time and summer allow. Best to just get over there and give the kids some love!

Manhattan Avenue

The setting for this grouping of furniture from the RFL Home & Garden Expo and the first anniversary Shiny Shabby is deep in the city with Nellie McKay’s satin voice. Stephen came over and gave me a tutorial in color theory in decorating, starting with the deep purple sofa and chairs Victor Newchurch made as his donation items for the Expo. With yogjio’s deco fireplace as the centerpiece and Tess Spargel’s mirror over the mantle (both donation items), we accessorized with Piraiyah Novikov’s glamorous pieces for his gacha at the Expo. I clothed the windows with the city view with curtains from Piraiyah for Shiny Shabby (which I tinted slightly), and I topped the mantle with finials from Elsa Wellesley’s gacha at Shiny Shabby. Kaerri Rae makes some of the most beautiful flower arrangements in SL, and this orchid is one of her donation items for the Expo. (She also happens to be one of the hard-working organizers, with her partner Cain Maven and bestie Reven Rosca, for the Expo). I thought Synnaria Vlodovic’s gothic chandelier with purple roses might add a kind of a eclectic addition to the décor.

Manhattan Avenue

My Manhattan cosmopolitan might be dressed up for a night out in Hilly Haalan’s sexy mini with a color change HUD that allows me to tint the main dress a blackberry with fuchsia insets and pink studs. The one dress could provide hundreds of combos with such versatility. My jewelry is Mea Carnell’s contribution to Cosmopolitan Room, studded with rhinestones. Senzati0n Domenitzo’s sexy shoes for Shiny Shabby complete my look.

Manhattan Avenue

Monicuzza Babenco has created a gorgeous applier for the Catwa mesh heads for Shiny Shabby this round, and I spent some time messing with eye makeup and lipstick to make this look. VivienMarli’s beautiful and barely controlled tumble of curls gives a wildness to this chic Manhattanite’s sexy look.

I am getting to the point in winter where I need greenery and warmth. SL provides that bit of break that I need. A search brought up this gorgeous new RP sim, Telrunya, where I did a little exploring and took photos of my newest outfit, which starts with Sands Leavitt’s dress for Uber. With materials features in the mesh, the dress is fitted to several mesh bodies and includes a bodacious booty. Sands can’t help but imbue his gamer’s aesthetic and experience in the outfit so here you see leather and a sort of fighter girl’s sexy toughness. I paired it with thigh high boots KenadeeCole recently had up for sale and Mea Carnell’s lovely necklace for Cosmopolitan Room.

Shylah Honey has made a sexy sensuous hair for this month’s Tres Chic, and I really love it and hope I see it on many ladies on the grid because it’s a keeper. I spent a lot of time switching around between the 40 colors on the light brown HUD I had (each one has that many) and enjoyed trying subtly different looks. Sawsan Secretspy is offering this gorgeous skin with stained berry lips at the new Bombshells event. Yes, it’s on my own shape and it feels good!
