Aloha

In just a few short hours the Arcade will open and it is pretty much guaranteed to be packed for the first few days, if not the next week. If you can’t get in the first day, do keep on trying because the lot this round is well worth the wait!

Also opening this month is the Tropical Summer Fair. It runs from June 3-17th and will feature just about anything related to summer, high temperatures and the wonderful warmth of the season.

I am wearing some tropical island inspired pieces to go with my new decor from Ariskea, for the Arcade. The bodysuit is by LaPerla and is actually an applier that comes in seven patterns/textures and works with both the Maitreya and Belleza bodies. It is also Omega compatible. I also love this new headpiece from Astralia. The colors are so vibrant and the flowers/bird really grasp the tropical theme of the event.

I Think I Wanna Marry You

Hey there readers!

I know it’s been a while since my last post, but I promise I have not disappeared! In fact, I am gearing up to return steadily here soon. With being caught up in that pesky business of real life and a hard on for sim design of late, I’ve been a little lazy when it comes to posting. I’ll make it up to you, I promise!

In the meantime, Petey and I are celebrating our two year partnership and it’s made me a little giddy towards all the fun stuff that goes into renewing our vows. It also brings back fond memories of the passed three years we’ve actually been together, and all the dumb people who made us that much closer.

I wanted to do a pretty shot that would incorporate our impending nuptials and the lovely pair of shoes I’ve chosen, from Glamistry. They’re not a new release by any means, but are definitely one of my favorite pairs. I just love the simple elegance of the high heel (sans platform) and the added touch of bling on the side.

#pumpkinspice

With all of the fall and harvest themed items at the Arcade, I couldn’t not continue where I left off in yesterday’s post and do something reminiscent of pumpkin and cool weather and the warm colors of fall. Growing up in the North, that is definitely what I miss most about this time of year- the change of the seasons and the excitement over a hot pumpkin spice latte while snuggling beneath layers of warm clothes. Of course, I don’t miss the snow one bit, so I have to compromise somewhere.

What are your favorite things from this time of year?

The Arcade – June 2015

It’s that time of the year again! The summer round of the Arcade has fell upon us all and with it, a fury of amazing new gachas! I spent some time sitting out in the sun with my new set from Dust Bunny, wearing new and vintage inspired swimsuit and hair from Flowey and Exile.

It took a couple of hours to unbox all of my new goodies and I have a feeling that it’ll be a common trend for the next month.

The Arcade June round is sponsored by Style Kingdom, is filled with loads of fun new keepsakes and opens in just a few short hours! So get ready, get set…
