Mint Chocolate

Not only is plaid the go to pattern this season, but I didn’t realize how much I would love the mint and brown combination of it until I tried on this new dress from Tetra. It’s available in 15 colors at 288L$ each , or you can buy the plaid pack with 10 options for 688$L. Each version also includes a transparency option for up to 20%.

I haven’t worn my Simone bento head in quite some time, until Glam Affair released Aradia, for Access. I tried her on my usual Greer and though she still looks lovely, I have to admit that Simone really is a perfect fit. While she was never my first choice before now (the base lip shape just didn’t do it for me,) I will definitely be wearing this head/skin combination more often! I mean, look at those lips!

What are some of your favorite mesh head/skin combinations? I’d love to see them!

Love Cara

Witchy Weekend

I absolutely love Halloween! Granted, trick or treating in Florida is often way too hot to enjoy, but the concept is still totally awesome. While I am too old when it comes to begging for candy, we’re never too old to play dress up! Am I right?

In SL, the possibilities are endless and for the first time, the Arcade is sponsoring a special pop-up holiday edition of its gacha event! That’s right, all you can play Halloween gachas are available from October 6th-31st. You can check out the shopping guide here!

There are tons of new releases and themed items to create the perfect Halloween costume. I’m wearing new releases from Osmia, Glam Affair and Scandalize, among others and added these perfect folded top boots from Essenz to finish off my witchy inspired ensemble.

What is your favorite part about Halloween?

Plaid, Please

It’s sweater weather! Well, in theory. And definitely not here in Florida. But for me, September is the start of it all! Addams has released this new loose sweater in assorted color packs (solid, plaid, ombre, splotch) and the tones of this particular pattern are definitely rocking the Fall 2018 Pantone color palette. I’ve really been on a plaid kick in RL and so I went straight for that pack. I’ll admit that at first, I was iffy on the red and purple together, but it totally works and adding the new studded boots from Reign really added to the ‘wow’ factor.

Glam Affair has also released a new skin for LeLutka Heads. I am wearing Trecy in Tone 6. I still miss my old America tones, but I am really enjoying the variations in the new tones for seasons, as well as all of the new features. Can you say, hello contour!? Anyway, check out these lips on Trecy! As soon as I saw the ad, I was hooked. She is definitely my new favorite! What do you think of the new tones?

Feast Your Eyes

I always find it funny how on a regular basis, I am notorious for never finishing a decorating project around my sim, yet bring in some themed goodies or all hail the holiday season and I am all a buzz with activity and inspiration. Go figure, right?

All of these new harvest and Fall inspired releases have made me a decorating fiend and anyone who’s ever seen my Pinterest account knows I am a sucker for tablescapes. Not only has the Arcade provided a grab bag full of Fall fun, but Apple Fall has released his new Anashara dining set (a couple of pieces shown above) and What Next has started whipping up some beautiful new Fall decor!

What is your most favorite part about decorating for the holiday seasons?

Hello Fall

The first day of Fall is tomorrow!

Hard to believe it’s already here, right? Although I am a Summer girl at heart, I do love the Autumn season, especially when all my favorites start arriving. Pumpkin spice, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas- the list is endless! I also happened to have a whole lot of fun jumping in piles of leaves after Petey raked them all up. Don’t tell!

I also happen to love the layering potential when it comes to cozy cool weather clothing. Bonbon has this adorable plaid skirt for their Arcade gacha, which happens to pair perfectly with the new boots from Decoy.

Glam Affair also has a great new skin out for Powder Pack. I don’t subscribe to this one, but this skin is definitely worth giving it a chance. Eloise has elegant, soft brows and the contouring option on the HUD really highlights her features. I did stray from my matching lipsticks and instead went with the Crush set from League, which adds a bold pop of color.

Who’s ready for the new season?

Live Fast, Live Hard

The Arcade has rolled out all sorts of new releases for September! I am even more excited that there are a lot of wearables this round, as well as a good mix of Summer and the soon-to-be Fall gachas.

The title of my post so perfectly describes my RL lately, extremely busy, but you’ll see lots more posts coming soon! On top of that, Hurricane season is upon us and while we’ve been lucky here in Florida so far, I hope all of you on the East Coast stay safe! <3

Golden Glow

I’ve got tons of new stuff to show you guys today! To start, I just have to say that I am sooo excited it is already September! As much as I am a Summer girl at heart, I love Autumn as well! I think it’s because here in Florida, the weather is still pretty hot straight through to the end of the year. With that being said, on to the newness!

Glam Affair has been pumping out one release after the other. New skins are out for just about every event, including Level, where you can find the gorgeous Gaia. I am wearing her on Greer and she has the perfect, bow-shaped pouty lips.

Tetra released this new bikini for Collabor88 and though I missed reporting it here by a couple of days, I still wanted to show off the sexiness! I mean, who isn’t in love with anything high-waisted? You can find Cryssie at the mainstore!

And finally, these sexy platform sandals from Essenz can be found at the Vanity Event, in the full range of colors!
