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

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

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.

The Hierophant

The new round of We <3 Roleplay is underway and it’s an anniversary edition! Lots of creators have little presents out for you!
I am wearing Glam Affair’s  fantasy skin applier in silver for the LeLutka mesh heads on this pic, and I must admit: I love it, even though I do precious little fantasy/RP. I’m combining it with Tableau Vivant’s Cersei hair, also out at We <3 RP and the Immortal eyes from Ikon. When Aisling is releasing stuff that is not in a gacha machine and does not consist of a 100 (gorgeous) pieces, it’s a musthave for me. This Hierophant outfit is such a rare deal and it’s currently available in several colors/combinations at We <3 RP! I found the name a bit weird, because in the Tarot, it’s a typically male card, the High Priest, Pope or Shaman, the embodiment of institutionalized religion and the ritualization of life while the opposite of the Hierophant, the High Priestess, is more connected to intuition, sensuality and femininity.… Read the rest

Esedra

See that gorgeous neck piece? It’s new from Miamai for We <3 RolePlay! Aside from the necklace, which is also available in gold and brass, there also is a set of bracers, which you can see on the pic below! I love what Monica and Pill do with materials. It’s pretty stunning how the silver shines!
My hair is Rose, by the lovely MissAllSunday Lemon from Wasabi Pills and my eyes are Ikon‘s Charm eyes in Moor.
Any excuse to take more piccies with my new Karin meshhead from LeLutka. I’m wearing it here with Glam Affair‘s Ever 3 make up, and Glam Affair‘s Candy Lips 10. See, here you have a nice view of the Esedra bracers. Do visit the event and try them. You’ll love them as much as i do!
White Widow is back after a period of inactivity, and Julie Hastings has this gorgeous Crossswind tattoo out. She also updated most of her existing tattoos for the most popular mesh bodies! I am wearing the Maitreya one here. Works like a charm, every time!… Read the rest

Svetlana

Still ongoing is Shiny Shabby April, a monthly event organised by Anaisterpellie Resident, Neva Crystall and Vivienmarli Resident. I love it. It has a ton of qualitiy designers, a beautiful set up and most important, great items. This statement piece Svetlana, from Azoury, struck me right away, but I only went back to buy it today. Remind me I check out their mainshop, because I really don’t know this brand. The roses in my hair came with the necklace. I am wearing the New Faces Scarlett applier on the new LeLutka/Undivided Stella head. See that gorgeous royal blue eyeshadow? It comes with the skin applier in a separate HUD. The lovely bun hair, Amelia, is from Chemistry.

Variety

  I wanted to show you the same mesh head, and the same underlaying head shape with some of the different new skin appliers available since April 23, because the effect is quite dramatic. Just like when you wear another skin on your usual shape on the regular SL avatar they all look pretty different. I am wearing the upcoming Karin head from LeLutka’s Undivided here. Yes, I know I am a tease, but this new head is definitely my current favorite. From left to right, I am wearing it with Glam Affair (clean Ever, because Karin has yet to get her own base skin), YS&YS‘ Yvonne, Deetalez Heaven, Adam ‘n Eve‘s Chelsea and Izzie‘s Sophee, all no make up versions. Imagine when you start to mix and match the different make ups, because you can! Or, fiddle with the head sliders. Although the rigging  to the skeleton in the head is limited to affect only 2 sliders (head size and head stretch) the effects can be quite dramatic, as you can see in Sasy’s post here.… Read the rest

Hanging out on a Wednesday

This week’s release at ColdLogic has the prettiest dress!  Esper is a pretty little shift dress with a halter back and there goes a blouse over it, tied around the hips. The dress is shaded appropriately, so you need to wear it with the shirt, but I love it like that. I am wearing the dress with Fri.day‘s new Bailey loafers, out now at Kustom9.  Loafers like this remind me of the time that i used to sail fanatically. I loved in those shoes all season and the older they looked, the better it was! I am wearing Maitreya‘s Lara body which just had a minor update. When you wear it, the latest version will be sent to you automatically. I am also wearing LeLutka’s/Undivided’s Aria head with YS & YS‘ Ivonne skin applier and Glam Affair‘s candy lips. Tomorrow several skinners like YS&YS, Adam ‘n Eve and Izzie’s will release skin appliers for the Undivided heads, and I am so excited for it. We’ll have more options for customisation and the various make up elements are interchangeable!… Read the rest

The Temptress

For The Liaison Collaborative, Belleza made Eva, and what a tempting skin it is. The previcous couple of skins from Belleza didn’t really fit me, which is odd, because many claim that these skins all look the same to them.. but I kid you not, I wasn’t feelng the previous couple of skins on my shape. Eva on the contrary fits me like a glove again. While I tweak my shape all the time, when I have to tweak more for a skin than a bit of lip ratio and cleft, It’s not for me so to say and Eva just slipped on and felt ok! See below for all the beutiful make ups! Other need to knows: Hair: Olivia by EnVogue
Eyes: Promise by Ikon
Necklace: simple by Izzie’s
Dress: Windy T dress by Vincue
