Just Smile

I went out and did some exploring today, scouting for some new hang outs and hopeful scenic backdrops and lo and behold, I came across Kaelyn’s ‘It All Starts With a Smile‘ sim. I’ve been frequenting this destination on and off for gosh, the last seven years or so and I was excited to see that it hadn’t gotten lost in the ether that so many other SL sims seem to do.

When I arrived, I was pleasantly surprised by the woodsy atmosphere as it is what I just recently moved into over at Cedar Creek. So naturally, I spent some time exploring and finding all the nooks and crannies among the trails and beautiful waterfalls. I was also surprised to see that IASWAS has expanded it’s venue to include eight privately leased parcels. The fact that there is still a huge portion of the sim for guests to explore earns mucho kudos.

All in all if you are looking to rent a parcel on Eventide South, your best bet is to join the inworld group and wait for something to open up, but something tells me that openings might be few and far between. Perhaps a second sim could be a possibility in the future? Nevertheless, even if you can’t grab a rental, IASWAS is still worth some time. Also, be sure to check out their website for current events and a bit of fun.

Sunshine & Smiles

I visited Kaelyn Alecto‘s finished sim recently and am really impressed with the wonderful work she’s done! It has a little bit of everything and I love the ocean-side boardwalk feel of the landing point. And as her sim is so aptly named, it really does start you off with a smile!

Also, not only has this super sweet girly opened up her sim to all of us, but it was also her rezday yesterday, so if you haven’t wished her all sorts of good things, it is not too late to do so! Happy Rezzday Kae!

ColdLogic also came out with some great new spring releases yesterday as well. They are a mash-up of short dresses and light cardigans in a variety of colors- absolutely perfect for the warmer months!

This month, there is also a great photo contest at ColdLogic as well. The deadline is February 28, so there is still a week left to get your entries in. The best part? The winner will receive every new release for an entire year! Free!

Autumn Leaves

It’s been a month since Autumn officially began and finally, the edge has come off of the Florida heat (kinda-sorta,) enough so that a sweater is even possible for those that get cold easily. With that being said, Foxes has released a new fur jacket/bra combination for the October round of LuxeBox and I love that it can be worn for multiple seasons.

Glam Affair’s ‘Mina’ for the Epiphany Gacha Event also has some beautiful makeups that bring out the warm, rich tones of the fall season. I love how her skins can be worn with multiple heads and while Catwa’s Bibi isn’t really me, Mina looks just as stunning on Dyana. I mean, look at those lips!

My Outfit:

Catwa – Dyana Mesh Head
Glam Affair – Mina (america02) NEW RELEASE @ The Epiphany
The Skinnery – Freckles Applier
Foxes – Foxy Jacket & Bra (w/hud) NEW RELEASE for the October Luxebox

New Releases @ coldLogic

ColdLogic has some new releases out this week- a trio of three different dress styles that come in a huge variety of colors and textures. What’s great is, the style I am wearing is completely customizable, so I traded out the original gray undershirt for a white one. You can do this for all of the colors, creating dozens of different and fabulous looks!

Also new from Sax Shepherd are these cross strap mules, which are an addon for the SLink medium height barefeet. The fatpack HUD is fully customizable and the shoes are super cute!
