Late Night Games

Video games abound at the latest round of the Oneword event and I found myself fooling around on my game system while waiting for Petey to arrive. The event ends September 15th, so you have a little over a week left to shop! Grab your taxi here!

Gamer Girl

I am so excited about all the new releases this month! Not only does September kinda-sorta kick off the start of the fall season (pumpkin spice everything <3) but it also means that the Arcade is once again upon us!

I’ve been in a bit of a gaming mood ever since the new round of Oneword announced its ‘gaming’ inspired theme and I snatched up this fun tank from Lucky CC. And naturally, as the Arcade has something for everyone, I was also able to dress up my pretty in pink gamer girl room with loads of new goodies from ‘the Sugar Garden,’ ‘Tres Blah,’ and ‘Commoner,’ among others.

Both Oneword and the Arcade open September 1st, so get there quick before it’s all over!

Beach Stroll

Summer is here! Finally!

My favorite SL Summer event- Summerfest, kicked off yet another wonderful round and just as I foresaw, I spent a small fortune on all sorts of new goodies for the season, including hair, swimsuits and these new shorts from Paper Arrow. I love that they come with a hud to change the color and texture of the bikini part, but since it didn’t come with a matching top, I decided to pair it with the one from the new Eunoia bikini from Boom. The bikini isn’t fitted mesh, but it is mesh body friendly with an included re-sizable version that I had no trouble fitting to Lara. As always, it’s always best to try a demo beforehand.

Peter’s been away traveling and I hated the entire month he was gone- including his bad internet connections! Nevertheless, he’s home… finally! So naturally, we shopped ’til we dropped, then ran right to one of our favorite hangout spots to walk along the beach and snap some pictures.

White Walls

Okay, so I finally caved. I love mesh heads in SL and though I tried the first round of those from LeLutka and was suitably unimpressed by the style of the heads, I have to admit that the second batch was more geared to my style of avatar. After some debate, I decided on Stella, whom I felt had a more fresh and playful look to her, as opposed to the others. I like the curvature of the chin and jaw much more, the definition and the flirty set to the lips and the presence of- lo’ and behold, cheekbones! Nevertheless, I am having a lot of fun playing with the HUD, which offers so much more in the way of options and at a seriously smaller price tag than that of the Mesh Project.

Also new this week are skirts and cropped tops from ColdLogic, gorgeous and modifiable belts from Molichino and an expansive mesh pose prop from Exposeur for the 3rd Birthday Round of faMESHed.

Darkness Ahead

I’ve decided to do a bit of a dark themed post, inspired by the new round of Oneword, in all of it’s dark and twisty glory. You can find this pose by Mien poses and lots of other neat stuff here. The event runs from May 1st until May 15th!

Also new is this ‘Aura’ hairstyle by Catwa! An edgy bob with a long side-sweep of hair that teases your shoulders. I paired it with a darker color for a fierce look, or you can make it simple and sweet by going lighter for ultimate versatility.

Green With Envy

If you’ve seen my Flickr stream lately, you’d see how enamored I am of this sim, “The Vineyard at Checkmate.” Not only have I been haunting the place lately, hanging out and snapping pictures, but I’ve also really been digging the lush green of colors of spring and true Italian charm that it brings. Though I did lag a bit in certain areas, I have to say that this is one of my new favorite sims, and if you haven’t noticed yet, I’ve already found my favorite spot!

New this week are some great pieces at some of my favorite events. The Roxy tank I am wearing from Erratic has a great cut out pattern in the shape of a skull on the back (not shown) and pairs perfectly with these new cargo pants from a designer (Addams) I am really beginning to love. Also new is this adorable charm necklace from Mynx. Chantel keeps getting better every time I see her stuff and I love the way this locket allows you to select the initials on the outside (via menu) but it also opens to where you can add a picture to the center heart. Hmm, I wonder what picture I should choose…

Lastly, Pose Fair 2015 is FINALLY open! Ruby and Shiloh have been working ridiculously hard and if you haven’t seen samples of some of the amazing poses and stuff out, you ought to check out the Hottie Cooterati blog, or better yet, head to Pose Fair yourself! I’d modeling poses from Dream Print, which is just one of many fabulous creators to be found!

Private Picnic

I was randomly browsing the Marketplace, as I am wont to do at times, when I stumbled across this adorable ‘Pork Pie’ hat. I immediately grabbed one for both Peter and I and somehow, we managed to come up with similar outfits to show it off. He even managed to drag me shopping, of all things! It’s a break-through, I’m telling you!

Peter also happened across this ‘IDK’ event that I’ve never heard of before, but has some really great items, including these shorts by Addams. This is one designer I have never worn before, but I am definitely going to be coming back for more. I am loving both the textures and designs!

Also new is this backless (and super adorable! t-shirt from ANE and weekender bag with fun postcard print from Izzie, both for the newest round of the Liaison Collaborative! TLC also has a new build as well, by Apple Fall, so be sure to check it out! It’s stunning!

Dark Fairytales

After my last Aladdin themed post and now with the newest round of Oneword coming at me with a fairytale round, I am in heaven! I did decide to go a little bit darker for this post in the form of a twisted Tinkerbell to help balance out my usual lighter style.

This short, impish dress from Dear Deer is so sweet and fortunately for me, comes with a HUD that allows you to customize the pretty rose embellishments on the dress and straps, or leave them off altogether, which I’ve done above. I’ve paired the dress with one of the many new poses by Black Tulip, which helped perfect my dark Tinkerbell in all her glory.

This month also happens to be the first birthday round of Oneword and I am so excited, and so happy for Melissa and all of the hard work and dedication she’s put into this event over the past year. We just adore her. <3 Oneword opened today, so you have a full two weeks of awesomeness to shop before we start getting ready for the next round!
