Welcome to the Jungle

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.

Love Cara

Christmas Miracle

I finally had some time to photoshop the pictures of a scene I’ve been playing with lately. I even made an attempt to use the drawing pen I bought forever ago- but never could figure out. What do you guys think? I won’t even mention how long I stared at the screen.

Oh, and did I mention all of the lovely goodies available for Christmas lately, including those at the Arcade, which is already halfway through its December round!

Merry [almost] Christmas!

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.
