The FAD Event
is open again with round three…
I LOVE color, the brighter the better so this round’s offerings are right up my alley!
I am wearing the Alice Hat in purple by Wicca’s Wardrobe and the Joie blouse and pants by *MSS*. My pose is Andrea 1 by KaTink (@ Sneak Peek
). But wait, there’s more…
Look at the sexy back on this blouse! I love it! I am wearing my Lara in these photos, so you can see the standard sized mesh fits very nicely over it.
The styling contest is still in effect this round, so not only should you come on over to check out all the brightly colored goodness, you should pick out a few items for yourself, style ’em up and enter the contest for a bag full of goodies!

I was sorting through my inventory in my never ending quest to clean/organize/lighten it, when I came across a head scarf made by my SL mom, Discovering Destiny (aka Lark) from On A Lark
. I really don’t wear head scarves enough, and I see why, finding a hair to go under them can be a real challenge. I am wearing the April Headscarf in Eggplant with a bangs attachment (JOPE57) and hairbase from Boon
. I have my Lara body on and was excited to use one of my older tattoos from Letis Tattoo
called Bohemian with the Omega System Kit trick to get it to apply to Lara. Once again I was pleased with the results. I love the new lipsticks from Deessess
that go with my Alicia skin and I am wearing the L’adoree shade for light skins. La Boheme
just seemed so fitting with this look so I am wearing Glamour Eyes: Cassiopeia Set 1 #5. Then their was the Banjara silver talisman necklace from Zaara
which really helped make the look. It was fun to dress up the simple Madison romper from The Secret Store
, it was a lovely canvas to begin with.… Read the rest
The Body Art Hunt
draws to a close in a few days and I wanted to give you one last reminder to get going so you can have some of the amazing gifts I have on! As always I am wearing my Maitreya and this lovely flower tattoo is called Fancy Flower by TENJIN. Also available on the hunt is the makeup (eyes & lips) I am wearing .Echo. Crisp Facial Makeup. AND the lip piercings which are called double side lip piercings with metal studs by Glint.
I have to show off the other awesome tattoo I am wearing, it is called Ryu by Endless Pain Tattoos. I have to share a tidbit some of you may already know. It was news to me, so there may be some of you out there who it is news to as well. But the Ryu tattoo does not come with a Maitreya applier. I was lamenting over a similar situation a few weeks ago when a friend pointed out I could get something from Omega that would make it so I could apply tattoos that are made for Omega to my Maitreya. I finally tested this out and as you can see I was successful.… Read the rest
I love it when an outfit falls together. I am wearing the Giselle Wrapped Dress in Leopard from Legal Insanity
. Being on my Lara kick, I of course tried it on over my mesh body and loved how the standard sizes worked with it.
Then there are the -wild- “Animal Attraction” eyebrows from Madrid Solo
that were PERFECT. They are a June Group Gift that might still be available in the store if you hurry! I managed to finally make it to the Hair Fair and fell in love with this hair/hat combination from Tableau Vivant
called “Scarlett.” I have been loving the eye shadows from La Boheme
and the one I am wearing is aptly called “Feline Instinct.” I have my updated Alicia skin on from Deesses
and one of the new lipsticks that go with it called “Foudroyante.” The necklace is from one of my new favorites Random Matter
and is called “Cambria.”
Lastly I have the Ramonda Heels by Glamistry that have been updated for this round of the Kustom9

This is likely my last possible reminder for you that the second round of the FAD Event
is about to be done! I was having a delightful chat with Jude Tatham (the event organizer) where she reminded me this round will close up on July 25th. So that means there isn’t much time left to have a look at all the creative designs this round’s creators have in store for you.
I have been on a mesh body kick lately and as I have said before, I was a long time Physique user and recently acquired a Maitreya, and I haven’t taken it off! Well maybe once for an outfit I couldn’t make work on the Maitreya, but I have to say that is getting to be more rare than it used to be. I finally joined the Maitreya camp when I was in a show for L’Amour as they have recently launched a curvy model division and I knew I had to be a part of that. I was to model in a curvier form, but the designs were surprisingly not made for the Physique. I say surprisingly because I had pretty much encountered most designers do make Slink compatible designs.… Read the rest
I’ve been giving something a lot of thought lately. The topic of blogging in SL is a rather big one with many facets. I have seen rants from bloggers or designers about one thing or another and I have never considered myself a public ranter. My close friends know I will privately rant from time to time, but that is the sort of thing you do to vent among friends, nothing that needs to be on social media or my blog. I enjoy each and every designer and event I blog for. I try not to take too much on so I don’t short change anyone. As we all know RL and SL can’t be helped at times, and we end up with too much going on at once to really do a great job everywhere we are committed. We have to make some choices and some things don’t get the attention they should. No one is perfect.
I have been a blogger for a lil while now and I am by far not the end all be all expert on things, but I am a person with an opinion and I am entitled to it, just as we all are entitled to our opinions.… Read the rest
Going to the beach has always been a production for me in RL, from when I was a child to now in taking children (and dogs) to the beach. I always wish I lived closer to the beach so it wouldn’t have to be this way. I have avoided the beach for years because of this (and traffic), then this summer I threw out that mindset and just went. I didn’t make a production of it, I simply allowed myself and my son only one bag each and we had to make that work. And it did! We packed our one bag of only what was needed, hopped in the car and went. It was surprisingly easy and without any hassle at all. I really do have to kick myself for so many years not going to the beach because of all my previous experiences. All it took was a change in mindset.
So here I am with beach at the beach thanks to KaTink
‘s “Hello Summer 7″ background. I am also in a KaTink pose called Demi 10.
The Body Art Hunt
is still going on this month and I am wearing quite a few great designs from that event.… Read the rest
Summer and grad work certainly keep a gal busy! That aside, I have to remind you all that the 2nd round of the FAD event
is still underway and you still have some time to pick up some great fashion like the ensemble above, “Money on my Mind” by LaVian, available as a part of round 2 of the FAD Event. One of the things I really do appreciate about clothing is HUDs and options, LaVian is never short on those. This ensemble is made up of the coat, shirt, shorts, and belt (all in one) and they are ALL color change! So there really is more than just one outfit here.
My pose is Misaki 10 and the background is Tillicum Island 18, both from KaTink
This round of the FAD event is over soon, so don’t delay. I will have more to show you tomorrow!
