Living in Florida, one kind of has to enjoy the tropical side of things. For me, it’s all encompassing. Tropical, jungle, beachy, you name it. The colors, the vibe and the feeling of relaxation I get when I’m surrounded by the nature of it all. Even my homes in both worlds are tropical inspired!
With that being said, it’s the 7th anniversary of Collabor88 and I am completed tickled by the ‘Rainforest’ theme of this round. With extra designers to celebrate, I found tons of gorgeous new pieces for my already overloaded SL inventory.
Osmia has released a sexy summer bikini with optional on/off sleeves and the top provides the perfect pairing to the shorts from Belle Epoque. Tropical rings from Astralia and my headpiece from LaGyo are a match made for the islands and added the perfect pop of red against all of this lush greenery.
I am also loving all of the new releases from Glam Affair. ‘Apple’ is available in the mainstore, and the fierce and thick brows are a statement all on their own.

I had a pretty crazy week at work and so I didn’t have much of a chance to post before the end of my week. I always feel like I am behind when it’s been too long between posts, but of course we have to take the good with the bad, right?
Ever since I picked up the new props for LeLutka mesh heads, I haven’t been able to put them down. In fact, they were the first items to go into my ‘favorites’ folder that is included with the new Firestorm update. You can read more about that here.
The ‘Oral Fixation’ line is available at the Mesh Body Addicts Fair, where you can pick up the animated versions of a lollipop, bubble gum, cotton candy and yes, even ice cream. As you can tell from the HUDs shown below, there are so many options for each treat, including color changing parts, messy face details, multiple animations and static poses.

It’s been a crazy busy week for me, so I don’t have much to report on today, but I did want to squeeze at least one post in before the end of the week.
I am loving this set by Pseudo, at Kustom9. I am not really sure what to classify it as- lingerie or swimsuit, so I added some combat style boots, visor and hair from Foxy and dared to hit the streets as is. I haven’t received any complaints so far!
Glam Affair has also released new skin ‘Patty’ for Uber. I am still in the air about the new tones. I love them, but my heart still beats for ‘America’ from the previous releases; however, an awesome trade off is all the new makeups, lashes, eye-shadows, brows and even contours for the new skins. Winner winner! I am wearing Patty, tone 6, with contour and red lipstick from set 8, at the mainstore. I am also loving the fierce arch of these brows!

I honestly believe that for every little black dress, every girl should also have a little red one in her closet. There is something sexy and brazen and assertive about the color, so why not make it a wardrobe staple? And really, with so many different hues of red, it’s a color that can look great on anyone.
Osmia has this new Jasmine dress around for Kustom9. It’s silk, and short and a bit revealing and yes, it has red! I couldn’t let all of this skin baring sexiness go to waste, so I paired it with new release Tisha hair from Phoenix, which is available at the mainstore for faMESHed go. I love the wavy, crimped curls! Tisha also comes with a HUD that includes two different bangs options, as well as single or double buns.

Sybil is one of the many new appliers for Catwa that Glam Affair has released since the new tones and features have been updated. She’s available for the Catya head, but as you can see I am wearing Magy, my latest obsession when it comes to mesh heads. Also included with the new tones are highlighting and contouring options, which I feel work best on the Catwa heads, as you can use both an upper and layer option for each type of applier.
You can grab Sybil at the Dubai Event here.
I am also wearing the new floral headpiece by Lode, for the Summer Garden collection, available at the current round of Shiny Shabby.
The new Katty pants and top from Addams SO reminds me of the bohemian style in Mamma Mia, and since I seriously just watched it the other day, I was already channeling the feels for this fun, summery vibe. I definitely cannot wait to go and see the sequel.
I am in love with the patterns for these pants, which are available in a pack for L$650. You can also purchase a separate ombre pack, or full fatpack for the almost standard L$1299. The top also comes in glitter and ombre options, or fatpack as well, for a total of 66 colors. The laces and belt can also be changed via HUD.
I was at a toss up between the headband from Miss Chelsea and this sunhat from American Bazaar and actually wore both with this outfit for a few days before I finally settled on the hat. What a statement it makes! You can also grab a few birthday gifts at the Epiphany, including a matching beach bag from American Bazaar.

I went out exploring Roy Mildor’s Devin sim, which has this amazing Serengeti scene set up. It was the perfect backdrop for the new Safari gacha from Osmia, available tomorrow at the Epiphany. If you haven’t been yet, don’t forget to teleport to the various areas. I would love to see your pictures!
I finally went out and got another Catwa head, even though I told myself I wasn’t because I feel that they are definitely over-priced for the commonness of them. But anyway, I got stuck on Magy. Even though she isn’t one of the newer releases, I still felt that I was able to keep true to my style and the features that I liked compared to some of the others. And, of course, because she looks beautiful with all of the new Glam Affair skins that were just recently released.
I talked about the new releases in my blog post here, but I wanted to give you all a look at the Catwa versions. One thing I do love, is that I can wear both the new contour (available with each skin) plus various sets of freckles or moles.
And finally, Navy&Copper had this new release out for Summerfest ’18, which we all know is my favorite yearly event. I love the short hairstyle with bun in the back, that ended up being perfect for wearing with this scarf and setting out on new adventures.
