A Walk Outside

A Walk Outside

Which came first
The love or the love song?
Which is more important
In the long run?

~ “A Walk Outside” by Butterfly Boucher

A Walk Outside

I took a walk outside at Templemore in a cute dress from Ariadna Garrigus, a short number that includes a texture change HUD. Not all the hems are scalloped like this one on the HUD—Ariadna offers a lot of different looks and choices plus a number of colors. It’s a bargain. The other bargain I am wearing are Hilly Haalan’s heels, which include a ton of colors for changes on different parts of the shoe so you can mix it up and make it all work with your outfit.

A Walk Outside

There are still quite a few people who are not sold on mesh heads yet, and that’s ok. Umazuma Metaluna has released a set of skins for The Forest. I included a liner Uma had made for some previous skins but otherwise have not touched the skin and wear it on my normal shape. It has beautiful brows and lips as with all of Uma’s skins. Tabata Jewell is offering this darling hair for Hairology, one that is a youthful and rather unique in this world of big Brazilian blow outs. I really love it!

Once Wild

Once Wild

You were once wild here. Don’t let them tame you. ~ Isadora Duncan

Once Wild

I found myself going wild with this dress from Tatyana Ultsch for the Mesh Body Addicts Fair. With a HUD full of delicious textures, I chose this wild one to suit the cut of the dress (which is cut up to there). I paired arm jewelry from Aikea Reiko for The Liaison Collaborative with the look—I wish more were making jewelry like this because I think a simple arm band is really sexy. Nail polish from Zozicon for the Mesh Body Addicts Fair matches the look and sexy shoes from Senzati0n Domenitzo, new at her store, are open and sexy. My little gacha necklace from Revoul is pretty fun but it would have been nice if the creator had attached it to the spine and not the neck (hint).

Once Wild

Queue Marlowe must have been feeling wild when she cooked up this ‘do for Hairology. I had to choose the wildest color, of course, especially to go with Umazuma Metaluna’s skin for the Mesh Body Addicts Fair. The skin was made for the new LAQ heads but I found it worked just as well (thanks, Omega) on the Destiny Catwa head for the MBAF. I added some glitter and glam with eye and lip appliers from Alaska Metropolitan, also offered at the MBAF. The eye glitter is especially appealing with this look. I love Alaska’s makeup!

~ “Sweet Life” by Frank Ocean

Sweet Life

I went over to Baja Norte to enjoy the breeze and the ocean waves in this gorgeous dress from Flutter Memel. With a beautifully fashionable cut, it has gorgeous textures and a look that can take you from the beach to a party. She has created the dress in two colorways with a great HUD. I accessorized with jewelry from AvaGardner Kungler for On9. I especially love the texture of the gems. Strappy shoes from Senzati0n Domenitzo that are new at her store echo the square cut of the front of the skirt. My favorite part of my look is the smallest part—my nails. AlaskaMetro has been inspired by Hokusei and kimono patterns for some exquisite nail appliers she is featuring at the Bon Voyage event.

Sweet Life

I have once again put on the beautiful Destiny mesh head from Catwa Clip for the Mesh Body Addicts Fair. Nicole Button has released a new skin that includes a lovely lip and beautiful eyes. Applied to this head, it’s a gorgeous look, especially with the optional makeups. KateForster Akina has made this great up-do for Hairology with two top knots. It comes with or without bangs. I thought the sexy fringe of bangs over my beautiful eyes from lonlysoule for the AnyBody event added a sultriness to my look.

The Starlet by the Pool

The Starlet by the Pool

“Once in his life, every man is entitled to fall madly in love with a gorgeous redhead.” ~ Lucille Ball

The Starlet by the Pool

He spoiled her rotten and she knew it. He was a goner for her red hair and she was a goner for his huge estate in Tuscany. Not scheduled for any of the B-grade movies she found herself in, she could luxuriate for a few days by the his pool. Of course, she shouldn’t be out sunbathing but how could she resist when she had this gorgeous suit from ValentinaEvangelista from the Mesh Body Addicts Fair. No other woman would go out to the pool in jewelry but she wanted to make a statement—about luxury, about beauty, about how a woman like her could wear her jewelry anywhere she damn pleased. The big beautiful gems on Gyorgyna Larnia’s necklace and earrings for Fameshed made all the statement that needed to be said. High heel platform shoes from Senzati0n Domenitzo for Shiny Shabby even made it out on to the raft in the middle of the pool.

The Starlet by the Pool

Her face got him first—she looked like a redheaded Kim Basinger. Little did he know it was Kaoz Kobe’s newest mesh head from the Mesh Body Addicts Fair. A few clicks and glossy lipstick and eyeliner finished her captivating look. The final touch was waves of pageboy from Mirja Mills for the Crossroads Event. She was a siren, a seductress, and she was beside his pool. It’s all he could ask for.

Intelligent Life

Intelligent Life

“I’m sure the universe is full of intelligent life. It’s just been too intelligent to come here.”― Arthur C. Clarke

Intelligent Life

With the Brexit vote recently and people still supporting Donald Trump, you really have to wonder if there is intelligent life on this planet. I am guessing another planet hosts smarter (and sexier) beings. My sexier smarter being took a trip to the Mesh Body Addicts Fair, which is the best place to be as it opens today. Mimikri Kit has made this cosmic peekaboo dress in several colors with a matching thong and optional tintable pasties. It is made to fit several mesh bodies and system bodies. Nuria Augapfel has created these amazing shoe/boots for the Fair with a HUD to change the inner portion of the wrap around areas to lace or fishnet.

Intelligent Life

My inspiration to be alien came from Nethya Emor’s skin featured at the Mesh Body Addicts Fair. With a blue and subtle pink tint to it, it gives an otherworldly look to an avatar. I applied it on the Catwa Destiny mesh head from the Fair (which seems stuck to me now), though it comes with Omega, TMP and many body appliers. I paired it with the darling braids MissAllSunday Lemon is featuring at Uber. They come with a hat that fits perfectly on this hair but it can be worn without (as I show here). Funky earring cuffs from Celena Galli at Cosmopolitan Room finish my look.

~ “Unforgiving Girl” by Car Seat Headrest

Unforgiving Girl

I ran over to Templemore again today to take my photos because Luis has laid down some cool things. I found a great little house that I will be camping in (unbeknownst to Luis). The Mesh Body Addicts fair opens August 1, and I put together this outfit from several pieces from the Fair. Romi Dagostino has this darling top and shorts set, available in several colorways, featured at the Fair. I clicked around to find the colors I liked and wore the two together. With a bow on the front of the shorts, they are cute but definitely not girly. I matched up high heels for the Fair from Diamanda Allen that include a versatile color HUD and matched the studs to my awesome multi-layer necklace from Mirja Mills for We <3 RP. Aikea Reiko made awesome earrings for Shiny Shabby.

Unforgiving Girl

I couldn’t help but use Catwa Clip’s new Destiny head for the Mesh Body Addicts Fair again. I love trying different skins on the head to see how they will look. Everything comes out looking great! Today’s choice is a great applier from Nicole Button. With her handy makeup HUD, I was able to add a fresh look without being overdone. Kuranosuke Kamachi’s gorgeous locks for Tres Chic complete the look.

Oh, Allison, my aim is true

~ “Alison” by Elvis Costello, as done by POP ETC

Alison

I chose this cover of Elvis Costello’s song as a sort of tribute to Templemore, the great alternative music venue in SL owned by Luis Lockjaw. I knew Luis a few years ago and bumped into him again and the lyrics made a little sense: “Oh, it’s so funny to be seeing you after so long, girl.” Luis has done a great job with the sim and brings in some fantastic musicians and DJs, so get over there and join the crowd.

That being said, the Mesh Body Addicts Fair is coming up and I have seen some pretty awesome items that will be featured there (August 1-21). Doc Eldrich, who is OLD school SL but still going strong, is going to be there with this sexy dress with changeable textures. This is the thing with Doc: his stuff will be perfect or he won’t put it out and this dress fits to a T, looks awesome and has some incredible textures including this flowery skull texture. I matched up a collar by Lexiesnow from the closing-today ROMP with the dress. I also show new shoes/boots from Klari55a for the Mesh Body Addicts Fair, an amazing pair that would rock a LOT of outfits (but looks especially good here).

Alison

One of the big pieces of news for the Mesh Body Addicts Fair is the launch of a new mesh head from Catwa Clip. I have had a love-hate relationship with her heads from day one. I was mad I had to do all sorts of minor adjustments on mesh eyes I purchased to fit them, they didn’t always rez properly, and the face didn’t greatly appeal to me. That has changed with this new head. The eyes! I put this one on and boom! There they were! A tiny tweak to the spacing of my eyes and the depth and I was done. I didn’t have to pull down the mesh eyes themselves, I didn’t have to fool around with them for an hour. OMG! HUGE improvement to me. The face functioned pretty well with expressions, makeups, everything rezzing in quickly and easily. And wow! I love the shape of this one. The eye openings are just the right size, the lips aren’t too sticky-outy (so they are catching all sorts of shadows), the nose isn’t ridiculously Janet Jackson thin. I am in love!

I applied several skins to the head to find which I might like for this post (and enjoyed just playing for once) and one of Sawsan Secretspy’s latest skins looked amazing on the head. Sawsan actually made this for the recent Mesh Body Addicts Bi-Monthly and while it was not made specifically for this head (nothing has been so far), I think it looks just amazing. I tinted my lips and liner from the Catwa makeup HUD to match my outfit and wore MissAllSunday Lemon’s sexy long ‘do for Fameshed this month and created a look almost as beautiful and sexy as Templemore deserves.

Summer Sun

Summer Sun

Summer sun is shining through
And I’m no longer waiting on you
Baby, when the time is right
I am done unravelling my mind

~ “Summer Sun” by Few Bits

Summer Sun

Ariadna Garrigus made this cute little shorts and top set so I had to get over to Baja Bay and enjoy the sunshine. With a texture-change HUD for the shorty shorts and the tied-in-back HUD, the outfit is a sexy look for the summer, especially accessorized with dangly earrings from AvaGardner Kungler for Shiny Shabby and a fun handbag from Aikea Reiko. These strappy heels are from the last Mesh Body Addicts event from Klari55a, who has been doing great fit-to-mesh-feet shoes for a while. They come with all sorts of color choice options on a HUD.

Summer Sun

Otyebis has made this gorgeous skin for Shiny Shabby this round for the Catwa heads and it wore beautifully on the Sarah head. I added some dark dark green liner and tinted up the lips using the Catwa HUD. I love that Otyebis includes a body applier HUD for various bodies with the face applier. I was able to do a Maitreya push-up look and it went on fabulously. She also includes shorter looking lashes (an applier) with the skin but I opted for some on Catwa’s HUD. My darling hair is Bubbles Clawtooth’s offering for N21 this month, a long style pulled up in a bun with the option to purchase without or with the long bangs.

“When I despair, I remember that all through history the way of truth and love have always won. There have been tyrants and murderers, and for a time, they can seem invincible, but in the end, they always fall. Think of it–always.” ~ Mahatma Gandhi

Winners

I have been thinking a lot more about serious issues lately because of the elections in the US and the tension with the police. I can only heed Gandhi’s words and face things with hope. SL provides a little joy and beauty and good distraction from all that, especially when you have great creations to show like this zigzag dress from ValentinaEvangelista for Shiny Shabby. Valentina always follows her own style and seems to find a joy in creating original new pieces with great colors (check out these zigzags) and sexy features. This top drops down so I wore an applier from one of Mariska Simons’ lingerie sets. Funky platform shoes from TomClaney include a great color-change HUD for different elements of the shoes. Aikea Reiko has created a lovely set of jewelry for Epiphany.

Winners

Ele Brandi has made this gorgeous applier for the Catwa mesh heads for Shiny Shabby. I tinted up the lips with the handy makeup HUD and found a great look to go with Mirja Mills’ beautiful hair for Hair Fair 2016. Mirja is unfailingly generous in her talents and time for events like Hair Fair. She is offering five beautiful styles for this year’s Hair Fair and a set of jewelry as a gift for any comers.

Winners

Hats seem to be Mirja’s theme this year and each hair comes with a beautifully-styled hat with additional colors offered via the hair tinting HUDs. You can color the hat, flowers, and band separately to create a beautiful look. The long hair with a straw hat is a perfect look for summer while the gorgeous curly ‘do (which looks an awful lot like my RL hair when it dries right I realized), is a great throwback look to the 70s but wonderful for today too.

Winners

Mirja tried her hand at a great looking mesh in two hats. This hat has a pretty hydrangea covering a low-tied bun.

Winners

And this mesh hat includes a cheerful striped hair band with pretty blousy flowers and is tied in the back with another ribbon (see my close up).

Winners

Finally, Mirja could not keep out her braided hair for Hair Fair, and this is a darling, side-tied look below a pretty wavy hat.

Sweetness

“It’s so hard to forget pain, but it’s even harder to remember sweetness. We have no scar to show for happiness. We learn so little from peace.” ~ Chuck Palahniuk

Sweetness

I liked this quote because it reminded me that carrying a grudge is easy. Forgiving and remembering goodness isn’t as easy. I try hard to remember the creators who send me items to review without expectation–their gifts of talent are one of the sweetnesses in my SL.

Something’s so sweet about a easy dress in the middle of the summer, something stylish and fashionable but not too tight or fussy and this dress from Marcopol Oh from Shiny Shabby fits the bill. Fit to the Maitreya body, It includes a little sexiness on the side. I paired it with a great necklace from Ors Quan for Shiny Shabby and high heels from Senzati0n Domenitzo.

Sweetness

GenesisLab has created this gorgeous mesh head for Shiny Shabby this month. I love that I am able to wear system eyes and don’t have to mess around with mesh eyes to wear it, I was also able edit my shape with the head stretch to change the look of the face. It did require some editing in the eye depth, and I had to mess with the lashes.

Sweetness

Especially sweet as well is when a creator donates a portion of their income from the creation of an item for a charity or someone’s need. Carina Larsen is donating a portion of her sales from the sale of her gorgeous hair at Hair Fair 2016 to Wigs for Kids. She includes this full, pulled back look with optional bangs.

Sweetness

She also offers an elegant updo with optional bang styles.

Sweetness

A very full-bodied, long style with a side part makes me look a little Jackie O. And she is offering duo-colored pigtails as a gift for those attending Hair Fair.
