Hang on to a dream

So it seems we have something of a summer going on in Europe. Don’t complain about the heat, after all, we have been complaining about the lack of summer like forever. We wanted summer, we got summer! Instead make sure you drink plenty of water or green tea, stay out of the sun, especially during the top hours of the day 11-17 and indulge yourself with some delicious chilled water melon cubes and/or your favorite ice cream.
Oh and while you’re at it, bring some of that to your elderly neighbor! You know, the one that doesn’t have a lot of people visiting. This too shall pass after all, and then we’ll have a pretty epic summer to remember! Ok, enough good advice. On to the goodies: Hair by Argrace: Anzu
Meshhead by LeLutka: Stella
Applier by Lara Hurley: Iza
Necklace by Junbug: Pearls of wisdom
Dress by Ison: Off Shoulder
Shoes by Ison: Suede strap heels

La Reina

I went shopping at Uber! It’s yet another great edition this month. How about this lovely Raine hair from Wasabi Pills? I have been in it for 3 days now, that’s pretty amazing. I usually change hair like 3 times a day… or more! My Spring Garden necklace is from Yummy and there is also a gorgeous Spring Garden ring as a separate, also available at Uber. The dress is from Glam Affair, called Swen. I used to have some issues with Glam’s clothing because the inside was transparent and that made it hard to wear if not standing still, but their newest releases have (at least part) of the inside textured as well, so that’s awesome! My Nadya sandals are  from Fri.day and available at this month’s Collabor88, which is still ongoing for a couple of more days! And then some special attention for Mudskin‘s Reina applier for the LeLutka heads. Isn’t it pretty??? Mudskin is one of those brands I love, but never actually got to buy skins from because for some reason, they look lovely on others, but never on me!… Read the rest

Glam Domination

At Summerfest, Glam Affair presents Yolandi, a new skin with 8 different make ups, available in Artic, Asia (worn) and Jamaica. I haven’t been wearing a lot of red hair lately, but with this skin it kind of feels spot on! I have picked Tableau Vivant‘s Sunkissed, also out at Summerfest. Glam Affair is pretty active on the events this month, and they have made Eles which is out in a gacha form at Shiny Shabby in some Europe and America and Jamaica (rares) make ups: At The Conquest, Eles is also available, but then in Asia and Jamaica (rares) The cool thing with these skins is (unless you are really hung up on a special skintone) is that it really doesn’t matter which make up you get, because they’re all gorgeous!
T
he hair used for the Eles pics is from Elua, Demi for the ones out at Shiny Shabby and Iola for the Conquest Eles. My eyes, as always, are from Ikon. Speaking about hair… I just have to put this in here (and I will do that more often over the next few weeks) Hair Fair is coming!!!!… Read the rest

All the headz

I have been shopping appliers again. I sometimes wonder if I should blog head appliers exclusively because I have so much fun with them, but then again, there is so much more in SL than just pretty heads!
Anyway, the first one up here is Hara by YS&YS. It’s currently out at Shiny Shabby and comes in the usual YS&YS skintones. I am wearing no. 2 and i love the skightly desaturated tone.
Like always from left to right, you see LeLutka‘s Aria, Ever Karin, Leda, Lotte and Stella with the same applier.  The hair in the Hara collage is Keira from Wasabi Pills, out at The Conquest and the prim and proper Sybil dress is from C’est la Vie (currently also available at Shiny Shabby) Next is Alice from sYs. I picked this one up at Shiny Shabby, too. I didn’t demo it and at first, I cursed myself for it, because OMG, baggy eyes!!! but on second thought, I may be glad I didn’t demo because I would for sure not have bought it, and now, a couple of days later, this skin is growing on me.… Read the rest

Watermelon

When things get really hot outside, nothing is more refreshing than chunks of lightly frozen watermelon!! So simple, and so delicious. Needing slightly more prparation, but also very refreshing is watermelon lemonade. Lots of recipies on Pinterest if you’re interested. So yeah, little else is more summery to me than watermelon. I love this watermelon umbrella from Imeka, currently at Collabor88 and I built my outfit around it! My dress is Sophia from Blueberry, a mainstore release and a prefect rig on my Maitreya Lara body!! I’m matching it with Ingenue‘s Esmee sandals, which again are at this month’s Collabor88. They are so cute! You use them with flat feet, but they have a nice plateau! In a previous post I mentioned the 2nd hair that Exile has out at C88, Under the sun, and this is it, or rather, in this particular case it’s under the umbrella-ella but still, it’s so sassy! My head is Undivided‘s Stella and I am using Izzie’s Sophee’s skin applier and Glam Affair‘s candy lips applier.… Read the rest

More Summer

Glam Affair has released Summer V3 for Collabor88,  in 2 skin tones (America and Jamaica) and a total of 6 make ups for each skin tones, as well as appliers for PXL’s sweetlips. I could not resist and picked up the latest sweet lips release, counting on the usual consistent quality of Mr. Larsson’s items, but guess what… the shape you meticulously altered to fit the first release of sweet lips, doesn’t do it for the new release. Start all over, can’t be bothered. Should have demo’d.  Oh well hey, you can also use the appliers for your old lips (the one your shape is fitted to) or forget about them all together, because the lips on Glam’s skin are maybe even sweeter! Exile has two awesome styles out for Collabor88, I am wearing the Full of Grace one here because UPDO!!!! The other one you can see here, on Ms Mojo’s blog. It’s so cute as well!!! The gorgeous jewelry from the Panarea collection that  am wearing is from the talented hands of Gyorgyna Larnia from LaGyo and yes, these too are available at Collabor88, the June edition!… Read the rest

The Princess and the Pea


Call me biased but I find the upcoming Arcade stuff from Olive and Paloma more than adorable!! Princess and the pea themed, one of the rarer is a super high towering bed with lots of soft mattresses that would be enough to let everyone sleep like an angel…. unless you are a true princess! Further, there is this crazy cute bedhead hair “Sweetpea” both with (rare) and without a princess sleeping mask. See the wall art in the back, those are stills of actual soundwaves of Darla reading the Princess and the pea fariytale! How cute is that? Not from Arcade, I am wearing Starfly, by Dead Dollz, which is just a really pretty little number that is perfect as a nightie! And on my Karin head from LeLutka/Undivided, I am still wearing Pink Fuel‘s Sora aplier! The Arcade opens on June 1st. Strip bare, alpha up and be ready to brave the lag if you’re lucky enough to get in, and part with your L$!!

Abandon

I found this great Abandon scarf and pants by Dead Dollz in my inventory today. No clue when I  bought them, but gosh, it’s so perfect. I am waring it with  one of the latest tattoos from White Widow, Lost River, which has appliers for my Maitreya Lara body! On my head, the incredibly intricate Maang Tikka from Shi, which is currently available at Uber. A close up, raw from SL, can be seen here And then, mind if I gush a moment over the update that Mochi Milena did for her Sora alabaster skin? LeLutka applier included! For the first time in my SL, I don’t look like a kid when I am in Pink Fuel skin!!!  Mind you, I love Pink Fuel but I never felt comfortable in it because their skins always have this amazingly youthful and fresh look to it, but with this applier, I look like I am not barely legal anymore!!! The only criticism on this purchase is, that I would gladly have bought just the appliers, and not the full skin pack, because I don’t thinkI will ever wear the regular skin, and at that point, 2.3k is a pretty steep price!… Read the rest

Alessa is it

This gorgeous dark skin is Alessa by IT Girls and it’s made for the LeLutka/Undivided mesh heads. What i particularly like about this skin (applier) and actually of all IT girls skins are the rather pronounced cheekbones. This gives all their skins a fairly mature and sophisticated look. All images in this post are untouched, except for some cropping and framing for the pic below. The headpiece is by Baiastice and currently available at Uber, and the stunning eyes are by Ikon.

Garden Bard

I’m so behind with blogging. I keep taking pics, but I don’t give myself the time to sit down and put it out here!
One of the recent items at Collabor88 is the pretty Garden Bard Abode from Trompe l’Oeil. I so love the work from Cory Edo. And the price is ridiculous. L$ 188!! I have shot this pic in the Moon bubble from Rustica and the hollyhocks, the willow and the oak are from Heart Botanicals

A walk on the beach

At this month’s Collabor88, Tee*fy has these awesomely made Giselle Rompers out. There is a fitted version as well as standard sizes, and it fits perfectly with the Maitreya Lara body which I am wearing most of the time. The necklace I am wearing with it is by Maxi Gossamer, and also from this month’s C88. It’s called Ariel Sun pendant, and as with all Maxi Gossamer‘s stuff, it’s texture change and comes in both a long and a short version. I’m wearing New Faces Scarlet applier on LeLutka‘s Stella mesh head. The New Faces brows are among the best I know! Look at how full and lush and perfectly shaped they are! I hope New Faces will have more skintones and more faces out soon! From Catwa I got the Woke Up hair which is a loosely tied low pony tail with a texture change hair clamp, but I’m not too fond of the textures provided, so I just make it transparent.

Caressing the light

This round of Collabor88 is full of pretty powdery pastels!! And I love those as much as I love my whites and greys! I am wearing Fashionably Dead‘s oversized T on Tres Blah‘s Grace cropped jeans and Atomic‘s Piper flats. Makes me a happy Graz, especially with the RL temperatures that are on the rise and mother nature is celebrating a big orgy. Honestly, you can almost see the trees and flowers grow. I hope that the end of summer will bring me a nice harvest of fruit from our orchard, because the past couple of years have been disappointing. /end ramble. My hair is also available at C88 and is from Lamb, called Ultraviolet and my necklace is from Maxi Gossamer, Solaris Pearls and my Fragmented shades are from Yummy, also from this round of C88.
Last but not least, I am wearing it all over my Lara body by Maitreya and I am wearing my favorite mesh head Karin, by LeLutka and a Karin skin applier by Glam Affair.

Miles to nowhere

 New Exile!!  Miles to nowhere is one of the two styles Exile brings to this round of Collabor88, themed Into the light, with lots of pretty pastels and fairly romantic designs! My kind of round!! I took this pic before C88 opened, so I am not using other stuff from the event yet, but the Chloe shirt dress from Valentina E. is very me in both worls, and I am pairing it with COCO Designs over the shoulders biker jacket. For accessoires I am wearing Cae‘s Triskele collar and Maxi Gossamer‘s Violette cut beads necklace. My face is LeLutka‘s Karin mesh head and I am wearing YS&YS‘ Yvonne applier, as well as Maitreya‘s Lara body.

Gina

New ColdLogic!! And I am a sucker for a nice wrapped skirt and the creatives behind the brand made plenty of those this week!! I am wearing ColdLogic‘s Pirie shirt and their Selby skirt and as usual, their clothes come in a plethora of colors and textures. I liked this ” beach” one and decided to wear Chemistry‘s Zara hair with it in a pretty blonde/blue ombre shade. I am hooked on the LeLutka Undivided mesh heads and I am Wearing Stella today. With her well defined chin and jaw, she’s the princess of Sass for me. From Adam ‘n Eve is the beautiful Gina applier that I am wearing with it. See below for a comparison of Gina on every currently available LeLutka mesh head. Accessoireswise I have kept it quite simple. I am wearing Cae‘s Phases necklace, which is currently out at Fameshed and a pretty daffodil in my hair which i got from a gacha at Lode.
