#CatchEmAll

Unless you’ve been living under a rock the past few weeks, then you’ve surely heard of Pokemon Go, and if you’re as nostalgic as I am about the games we used to play as kids, then you’ve already signed up and are walking your way to some epic catches!

I almost wish there were a version of the app in SL, but since there isn’t- I’ve had to be content with snapping shots around the grid while chasing these imaginary creatures and since I live near the water in RL, you can find me here on the serene beach at St. Pete City. I’m even wearing this nifty Pokemon belt by Loki Mesh, which is free on the MP!

Have you joined the Pokemon Go fever? If so, what team have you joined and what are some of your favorite catches? I’d love to hear about it, and feel free to share a shot of yourself catching them all!

Havenhollow III

Two years ago, Petey and I discovered Havenhollow at its premiere and we loved it. Last year, we weren’t able to do the same because I was traveling, but fortunately, Havenhollow is back for a third year and with an amazingly fun theme.

If you like Halloween and trick or treating and the fun of walking around the neighborhood with all of the evening excitement, then you’ll definitely want to stop by for a visit. Not only are there hayrides, plenty of photo-ops and free goodies, but the sim is fantastically designed to replicate your favorite suburban neighborhood all decked out for the holiday.

Even better, visitors can grab a free candy pail at the landing point and then proceed to explore all of the houses around the sim, trick or treating for candy and yes, even tricks! It’s completely fun and interactive and great for kids and adults alike, so set your windlight to midnight (or region,) grab a flashlight (available on sim) and teleport to Havenhollow III.

Summer Punch

The newest round of Collabor88 features a pallete of bright colors that are perfect for Summer. I’m wearing these adorable shorts and knotted tank from Tee*fy, as well as this windswept styled hair by Tableau Vivant for Kustom9.

I stopped by Celebrities Bay for this shot because of the fun tropical atmosphere of the sim. It’s a great place for pictures and hanging out, as well as a venue to great concerts and tributes bands.

Indian Spice

I just had to stop by and snap a couple of pictures at this new artfully decorated sim, inspired by glorious gardens and the bright, bold colors of India. Naturally, I’d be wearing something exotic and fun, like this new Jaya dress from Fishy Strawberry and long braid from Truth. And, it wouldn’t be called Indian if it didn’t have something from Zaara included. Thought this jewelry set is a much older release and is not by any means mesh, it is still one of my favorites and can easily outshine just about any style.

If you haven’t stopped by this sim yet, I highly recommend it. Grab yourself an ice cream at the entrance, then meander through the colorful garden path and down to a magical lane of fountains and beautiful architecture. This is definitely a place you’d want to visit if you’re looking to take some pretty pictures, or just to hang out with that special someone.

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!

Armenelos

Calas Galadhon has re-opened! For those of you who were frequent visitors to these beautiful sims, Ty and Truck had closed them for a few weeks to update and redesign some aspects. My favorite Grecian inspired sim, Armenelos, no longer exists, but has instead been redesigned with a stunning forest wonderland. It’s gorgeous!

I managed not to break an ankle while exploring in my new heels from Hucci. I am so glad to see that Eboni has joined the bandwagon and started making shoes for all of the mesh bodies out there. I just love her shoe add-ons for SLink and the prices are great. You can grab a single color of these new Gabala pumps for $L295, or pick up the fatpack for an outstandingly low price of just $L695!

Boho Biker Babe

I don’t know about the rest of you, but down here in the South, Spring has already kicked in full force! With temperatures well into the 80s at times (not rubbing it in at all…) it is perfect weather for shorts, tank tops and sandals! I am rocking this new bohemian inspired look with goodies from Uber, as well as a new bouncy and fun ponytail by Catwa for the Biker’s Choice Fair. You can grab this hairstyle and more, plus some awesome gifts from now until the end of the month! Grab your taxi here!

I also hit the SL destination guide in the hopes of finding some new spots I haven’t been to yet, and I was in luck! Leka is a gorgeous forest and water themed sim with bike trails, lots of pretty spring foliage and some really great scenic spots. Definitely a must see!
