I don’t know why I waited so long to adopt this new outlook for my SLife. I am having a blast! I still never thought I would have ever joined an RP-style community, but I am so glad I did. Not only have I already made some incredible friends in the last few weeks, but I’m also having all sorts of interesting adventures.
I’ve worn a lot of casual stuff lately as I wander through town
not getting into trouble, but I really wanted to show off these new sneaker-style booties from Scandalize and Ariana dress from Cynful. They both have a similar tufted/quilted sort of pattern on them that go great together. I’ve actually worn them for quite a few days, I’m afraid my neighbors might start questioning my hygiene.
In any case, it has been nice to take a step back from blogging. Don’t get me wrong, I still love every moment of it. But not having the deadlines and getting to post at my leisure is, admittedly, really nice. Of course, I couldn’t help but apply to blog for an event that ya’ll know I’ve <3’d every year. So, stay tuned for some Summerfest ’20 inspired goodies coming soon!

I tried the new Genus Project bento head when it first came out and for as long as I fiddled with and tweaked my shape, I couldn’t seem to get it just right. Now, as I’ve been wanting to incorporate another mesh- take two. I started experimenting with various skins and makeups and finally ended up with this stunning combination, and one of my new favorite looks.
Roxy is by Glam Affair and was actually released back in July, around the time that the brand underwent some major changes in their skins. I am so glad I went back and found her because as you can see, she is perfect. I did pair the look with the the nude lipstick from the Jessica gacha by Genus, but it really ties the whole look together.
If you haven’t at least tried a demo of this mesh head, you should. While it is still in it’s Beta stage you can grab the full product for 3,000L$, with a free upgrade to the future full version. If not, the full version with end up costing you 5,500L$. As I’ve always been a huge fan of Genesis Lab mesh heads before this change, I think that this price is a steal. There was even a recent update on 10/31, which includes:
- Neckline issues as well as tinting options
- Skin tinting options
- Hide button for the lacrimal
- Two sizes of the main HUD
- Separate eye move/resize texture options
Of course, while it is still going through the beta stage there isn’t as big a market for Genus appliers just yet, but you can still find some skins available at a few stores, including (not a complete list) :
Genus Project – Genus Bento Head & Jessica Piercing (22/gold) & Nudes Lipstick

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?

I love living in Florida. Even though I was born and mostly raised up North, I’ve since been converted to a hot weather and sunshine kind of girl. Give me the beach and laid back lifestyle over the snowy city any day. Even when it comes time for a vacation, I’d still rather go somewhere warm and tropical, preferably an island- as opposed to luxury cities like Paris or skiing in Colorado. What is your favorite vacation spot?
Bright and tropical colors are also my thing. I wear black from time to time, or rich jewel-toned colors- but even in my RL, I am in love with bright colors and tropical or floral prints. Tank tops, flip flops- you name it.
I don’t typically wear a lot of orange or pink in SL, but I do enjoy the combination of these colors, especially when I am in a tropical mood. When I saw this shirt from Boys to the Bone at last months round of Equal10, it stuck in my mind and so when I picked up these new releases from Blueberry, I ran straight to the BTTB mainstore to make a match. My piled high updo from Tableau Vivant (have you checked out their new hairbases yet?) reminds me that I still have a few more days of my vacation left to enjoy.
Last but not least, Hello Dave has some bright, Summery nail polish for the new group gift. I totally owe it to my girl Naughty for turning me on to Maia’s designs. I’ve been in love ever since. I love you, girl! <3

If you’re not a part of the Truth VIP Group- you ought to be! The group costs (currently) 350$L to join, and each month Truth releases a new, exclusive hair for VIP members. The gift is released via notices, so you only have 14 days to claim it before it expires.
For the month of May, Truth has released Kare- a short/medium wavy do that is perfect for the summer months. But, even better is that Kare is the first glimpse of Truth’s new textures & HUDs as well as a preview of the new stylist HUD.
There are nine new texture/color HUDs in total, as well as the animated stylist HUD, which in Kare’s case, allows you to bring the wavy tresses back and forth on either side!
Truth’s 10th Anniversary Sale has also been extended, so you’ve got a (really) limited amount of time left to grab 70% off hair!

So many new releases have hit the grid this month, that I will let the credits speak for themselves. But, I can say that I am absolutely loving all of the rich fall colors! Sim holders all over are even changing seasons to match and Izzie Button has really done a great job in updating her mainstore. She’s invited everyone to come on over and take some pictures and I can say that it is definitely worth a look.
